          Avis important aux grands voyageurs cactophiles (cf2) (3 réponses)   
Bonjour !

Toujours à la recherche de taxons impossibles à trouver sous forme de graines, je fais appel à tous les voyageurs cactophiles qui iraient visiter quelque pays d'Amérique que ce soit, y compris les USA ou le Canada.

Pour Taxonomie des Cactaceae "Description des espèces" vol.3 et 4, j'ai besoin de compléter la galerie des photos des graines au microscope numérique. Il reste encore environ 600 taxons à trouver (j'en ai déjà 2000...).

[attachment 115240 ArmatocereuscartwrightianusRE.jpg]
[attachment 115241 LeuenbergeriaguamachoVenDRRMSD151.jpg]

Je serais heureux de trouver des volontaires pour me rapporter quelques graines des espèces manquantes, notamment des Opuntioidées, que l'on ignore généralement au niveau graines, surtout le genre Opuntia et Cylindropuntia, et d'une manière générale, toutes les graines manquantes sur la liste actualisée que vous pouvez consulter et imprimer.

[www.cactus-aventures.com]

Comme cette liste concerne tous les taxons, si vous désirez une liste des taxons manquants du pays que vous allez visiter, je peux vous en envoyer une via mon e-mail (joel@cactus-aventures.com)

Vos conditions seront les miennes (je ne paye pas le voyage ! ;-) ), j'offre à tous les contributeurs, les droits sur toutes les photos qui seront obtenues des graines, et ils seront dûment cités dans les ouvrages.

De votre côté, pour chaque taxon, il sera nécessaire d'avoir la localisation et une photo, car les identifications ne seront pas toujours possibles sur le terrain et il peut y avoir confusion.

Je sais que c'est un travail de titan, bien pire que celui des deux premiers volumes, mais je souhaite cet ouvrage le plus complet possible ! Et on est près d'y parvenir !

Les graines peuvent aussi provenir de collections si elles sont bien identifiées ou avec photos des plantes et des fruits si possible.
Le facteur temps est avec nous, la publication ne devrait pas intervenir avant 2021 ! :-/

Merci aux 50 personnes qui travaillent déjà sur ce projet de collectes de graines : je viens de recevoir de la part de "forumeurs" une offre de graines de Cleistocactus candelilla ssp piraymirensis, Selenicereus vagans et de Micranthocereus violaciflorus : les petits ruisseaux font les grandes rivières ! Merci à Fred et à Philippe !

D'avance, merci !

TORONTO—As a line-up forms outside the Art Gallery of Ontario, Lachaolasie Akesuk takes advantage of the city’s concrete sidewalks to pull out his skateboard. There aren’t many places for the 16-year-old to skateboard at home in Cape Dorset, with its long winters and dusty summers, but Toronto’s urban landscape makes the perfect playground. Akesuk didn’t come all this way to skateboard though; the sprawling gallery he rides around features some of the young artist’s work. Akesuk and his mom,

          Air Canada va inaugurer le vol Montréal-Alger ce samedi   
Le premier vol direct d’Air Canada entre Montréal et Alger sera inauguré demain à partir de l’aéroport Pierre Elliott Trudeau, annonce la compagnie canadienne par voie de communiqué. « Air Canada est ravie de proposer un service sans escale au départ de Montréal et à destination d'Alger, une nouvelle destination attrayante qui renforce la place de l'aéroport Montréal-Trudeau en tant que plaque tournante stratégique pour l'ensemble de l'est du Canada et du nord-est des États-Unis, a affirmé Benjamin Smith, président – Transporteurs de passagers d'Air Canada. Misant sur le succès du service d'Air Canada Montréal–Casablanca maintenant assuré toute l’année, le service à destination d'Alger sera le seul vol sans escale exploité par un transporteur canadien entre Montréal et cette ville d'Afrique du Nord, établissant Air Canada comme un acteur de premier plan dans le marché important et grandissant entre le Canada et l'Algérie. Ce sera notre deuxième destination en Afrique, ce qui fait d'Air Canada l'un des rares transporteurs internationaux qui exploitent des vols à destination des six continents habités. » « Grâce à ce nouveau vol saisonnier, il sera maintenant possible de voyager et de transiter par Alger sans escale. Cela permettra d’élargir l’éventail d’opportunités des voyageurs, en plus de faire rayonner le Québec à l’étranger. En effet, je suis certaine que ce vol aller-retour favorisera l’attraction touristique vers notre belle métropole montréalaise. Finalement, ce vol est une bonne nouvelle pour les gens d’affaires et facilitera les relations commerciales, entre le Québec et l’Algérie, a déclaré Lise Thériault, vice-première ministre, ministre responsable de la Condition féminine, ministre responsable des PME » « L'horaire des vols est prévu de façon à optimiser les correspondances à la plaque tournante d'Air Canada à Montréal », selon la même source. La nouvelle liaison saisonnière sera assurée par Air Canada Rouge, la filiale low cost de la compagnie canadienne. La desserte se fera au moyen d’appareils Boeing 767-300ER de 282 places avec trois options de confort, selon la même source : la classe économique;  la place Préférence, offrant plus d’espace pour les jambes; et Premium Rouge, offrant plus d’espace personnel et un service supérieur.  A rappeler qu’Air Canada dessert déjà Alger à partir de Montréal via Francfort (Allemagne) en partenariat avec Lufthansa. De son côté, Air Algérie a une ligne directe depuis juin 2007.  
          Analysis: "Bad" foreign firms drive U.S. manufacturing jobs revival   

By Lesley Wroughton and Howard Schneider

SPARTANBURG/CHARLESTON, South Carolina (Reuters) - Years before Donald Trump began promising to bring back good manufacturing jobs by getting tough with U.S. trade partners, such jobs have already been on the rise, largely thanks to foreign companies now cast as villains in Trump's narrative.

Reuters analysis of federal jobs data shows that out of 656,000 new manufacturing jobs created between 2010 and 2014, two thirds can be attributed to foreign direct investment.

More recent jobs numbers are not yet available, but over $700 billion in foreign capital has poured in over the last two years bringing total foreign investment to $3.7 trillion at the end of 2016, a world record. (Graphic: http://tmsnrt.rs/2sWkzTB)

Now foreign companies that have spent billions of dollars on U.S. factories and local leaders who host them worry that global supply networks that back those investments will fray if Trump makes good on his pledge to roll back trade liberalization.

The U.S. president has threatened to tear up North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico and slap higher tariffs on nations that run trade surpluses with the United States, such as Germany or China. The administration is also discussing tighter immigration rules and more security screening of investment.

The tough message helped sway swing northeastern and Midwestern Rust Belt states Trump's way in the 2016 election, but puts him at odds with companies and local leaders in the south, which has driven the recent growth in manufacturing jobs.

The southern states have voted for Trump, but have also spent decades wooing foreign companies with flexible labor laws, financial incentives and investment in ports, roads and other infrastructure.

POSTER CHILD AND WHIPPING BOY

The courtship has spawned new auto plants from Kentucky to Georgia, and a new Airbus plant in Mobile, Alabama.

Few places highlight the gap between Trump's rhetoric and local aspirations better than Spartanburg in South Carolina.

German carmaker BMW has invested here $8 billion in a 1.2 million square foot (11.15 hectares) assembly plant, which has become the largest single exporter of cars by value from the United States.

South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster, a Republican and Trump supporter, credits the German automaker for putting his state on the global investment map.

"The presence of this company changed everything in the trajectory of our state," McMaster said on Monday at an event unveiling BMW's newest X3 sports utility vehicle.

Its Chief Executive Harald Krueger said the carmaker would invest additional $600 million in Spartanburg over the next four years, adding 1,000 jobs to the 9,000-strong workforce, and spend further $200 million on employee training and education.

But the poster child of South Carolina's success also doubles as a whipping boy. In January, BMW's plans to build a plant in Mexico drew Trump's ire and last month the U.S. president was quoted as saying Germany was "very bad" on trade and selling too many cars in the United States.

And even as the company highlights its contribution to the U.S. economy and the benefits of free trade, it is hedging its bets by preparing for a possible protectionist backlash.

Outside of the spotlight, BMW is retooling factories in South Africa and China to build volume models like the X3 SUV, reducing its dependence on Spartanburg.

“We have a big footprint here, and we are flexible enough," Oliver Zipse, BMW's board member responsible for manufacturing, told Reuters. "We will build the X3 not only in Spartanburg, we will split it into South Africa and then to China, so we will have some flexibility to produce cars somewhere else,” he said.

“If something happens at the political level - which we don’t know yet - we are able to have a flexible response.”

The Trump administration has said it welcomes foreign investment and Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, who spoke at an opening of a new Samsung Electronics <005930.KS> plant in South Carolina, said such projects showed that "America is becoming an even stronger destination for global businesses looking to grow.”

The southern U.S. states owe much of their success to coastal port authorities and cities that have invested heavily to make their channels and docks fit for shipments to and from China and Mexico.

Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican from South Carolina who has often clashed with Trump, said protectionism would undermine those accomplishments and hurt American workers.

DOOMSDAY SCENARIO

"Negotiate a trade agreement with Europe, modernize NAFTA, don't tear it up," Graham told Reuters at the BMW factory. "We're going in the wrong direction. We need more trade agreements, not less."

Graham noted how low-cost competition from China and Mexico destroyed South Carolina's once thriving textile industry and how the state reinvented itself as a manufacturing hub, bringing the likes of BMW or French tire maker Michelin .

The now humming port city of Charleston has a similar story to tell. When a major navy base shut down in the 1990s wiping out 20,000 jobs, local officials worked to bring foreign manufacturers, which now employ around 10,000 in the three counties around the city and more is set to come.

Mercedes-Benz, part of Daimler AG , is adding 1,300 jobs so it can make its Sprinter van here rather than merely assemble it with imported parts, which also means more business for local suppliers.

Up the road, Volvo Car Group, part of Chinese conglomerate Geely, is due to open its first North American plant next year with a target workforce of 2,000.

Local development officials expect more jobs and investment to come, but worry that some steps discussed by the Trump administration could have a chilling effect.

Claire Gibbons, director of global marketing at the Charleston Regional Development Alliance, said the proposed new tariffs, tougher immigration rules and stricter reviews of foreign investment projects would amount to a "doomsday scenario" for the region.

"This is an education opportunity for us all, for the people making the decisions that don't understand the ramifications."

          Take That "Cultural Appropriation" Ban All The Way   
Take That "Cultural Appropriation" Ban All The Way I've had this idea, vis a vis the college students and others screeching that Israel must be boycotted. I strongly suggest they take the first step and toss their iPhones (Israeli technology within) and refuse life-saving medical care that stems from Israeli researchers' discoveries. At Foundation for Economic Education, Pierre-Guy Veer applies this to those seeking to ban "cultural appropriation" -- which I like to think of as human cultural and intellectual progress. Imagine, "No, no, that fire thing is our shit -- don't be cooking your meat or we'll come club you with big rocks." Veer writes:
After years of complaining about such "problems" as a white chef cooking Mexican food or about "insensitive" Halloween costumes, it looks like Social Justice Warriors have finally prevailed. The United Nations will soon discuss, at the demand of indigenous groups, a ban on so-called cultural appropriation in order to "expand intellectual-property regulations to protect things like Indigenous designs, dances, words and traditional medicines." It is rather ironic that those Natives would only want to ban "appropriation" of "their" culture. Why not push it to its logical conclusion and call for a ban on all cultural appropriation? This means that they would have to forgo every single technology that was imported from the rest of the world since 1492. In other words, they would have to abandon mathematics, writing, any form of metal casting, currency, all languages not originally from Pre-Columbus America, modern medicine, etc.
They would also not have beer. Any takers? Yoohoo? Veer traces what I think of as Canadian cheese fries:
Through contacts with other people from other cultures, any given cultural idea or tradition has become better. Take poutine for example. This meal composed of French fries, curd cheese and brown gravy has become a cultural symbol of Quebec. Some Quebecers are complaining that Canada is "appropriating" it as a national symbol and that there are poutine festivals from coast to coast. This is a rather strange way to celebrate the fact that what used to be seen as vulgar junk food is now seen as almost a delicacy with many variations - with sausage, chicken, hot sauce, etc. This "appropriation" should be celebrated because it shows that "poutine culture" is alive and well. Had it been kept within the border of Quebec, it might not even exist today since stagnation and lack of evolution is what kills ideas. Imagine for a moment that Céline Dion had decided not to start singing in English because she wanted to remain "Québécoise pure laine". Despite all her talents, she would have likely run out of authors to interpret and would unlikely have become one of the best-selling artists on the planet of all time.A slow death is what awaits Native culture if they have it their way And considering that narrower range of French-speaking culture, she might even have stopped singing. This slow death is what awaits Native culture if they have it their way. Keeping "non-Natives" from using traditions not typically associated with them means that only a handful would be exposed to it. Fewer people showing an interest means that their products and ideas will get less exposure and will, therefore, become a sociological or archaeological artifact rather than a living idea, limited to a few multicultural festivals.

          Almost Finished!   
I finished the rewrite of the next Crochet Mystery. I will sending it in with the title OFF THE HOOK. I have lost track of time, not be outside for a couple of days except to take out the trash. It was hot and got cooler, but I didn’t notice.

I just have to make the cake tonight. I always make a test of the recipe when I’m finished with the manuscript. I also have to write the patterns. Well, write them out. I have them in my own shorthand.

I always find the end hard to write. How to write why the killer did it without it seeming like a boring information drop. And then tying all the threads together. The very very end was a challenge because I could feel the rhythm – that is a word I can never remember how to spell – was off. It was too brusque.

Last night I sat staring at the computer realizing I’d written my way into a corner. I’d been in front of the computer all day and by then was feeling pretty burned out. I finally had to let it go until this morning. As usually happens I must have worked on in my sleep, because the way out of the corner magically came through my fingers onto the keyboard.

I still need to proof read it, but I will make my deadline – always a relief. I can’t even bear to think of what is waiting when I send this off – corporate income taxes (we got an extension), last minute rush to prepare for release of A TANGLED YARN, and start writing the next Yarn Retreat book and come up with the idea for the next Crochet Mystery.

But I also know a couple days off and I’ll be raring to tackle it all. Plus next week I’m going to Seattle, Vancouver, Victoria and back to Seattle. I’ve only been to Canada once – I was fourteen and went into Windsor from Detroit with a friend’s family. We spent all of a couple of hours there. Our route looks beautiful even on the map. I can’t wait.

18 바시리・키리엔카   Ciena announced that it is working with engineering researchers at the University of Waterloo to develop solutions to help network operators and Internet providers address to the ever increasing demand for faster data transmission over the Internet.


A key area of the University of Waterloo's partnership with Ciena focuses on realising the maximum possible capacity from the optical cables that run under the oceans and which handle around 95% of intercontinental communications, including an estimated $10 trillion per day in financial transactions. Ciena noted that the reliable, high-speed transmission of huge amounts of data over undersea cables is increasingly important in fields including healthcare and academic research.

For the research program, Amir Khandani, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at Waterloo, is leading a team of post-doctoral fellows and graduate students that are developing algorithms designed to efficiently and rapidly correct errors, including lost or dropped bits of data, that occur during extremely high-speed, long-distance optical transmission.

When incorporated on the electronic chips that are built into equipment for receiving and transmitting data, the algorithms developed by the Waterloo team can free up cable capacity, while also enabling the faster correction of errors in line with other technological advances in optical communications.


Under the three-year partnership, announced at an event at the University of Waterloo, Mr. Khandani holds the position of Ciena/NSERC Industrial Research Chair on Network Information Theory of Optical Channels. Ciena noted that the relationship between Waterloo Engineering and Ciena has already produced seven U.S. patents, with additional patents pending.

          CN BC: Editorial: Time To Take Action On Marijuana Industry   
Prince George Citizen, 23 Jun 2017 - Thanks, Neil Godbout, for bringing it up (Citizen editorial, June 15). Marijuana is about to become a legal, government-regulated agricultural commodity all across Canada. Mostly, the plant will be cultivated in large greenhouses. Last week, a large greenhouse in the Lower Mainland announced it would no longer cultivate peppers but would switch to growing marijuana. Businesses across every jurisdiction are maneuvering to take advantage of a rare opportunity. This business is coming fast. Last fall, city council heard a bid from two entrepreneurs ready to set up shop and sell the stuff buy mail. They offered strong security and carefully laid plans for distribution, but the location was not approved.

          Why EPL is Soccer and not Football: The Definitive Answer   
I have been in America for 6 years now, and will most likely spend my life here. Like almost all Americans, I refer to what is played in the NFL as football, and what is played in the EPL as soccer.

I don't like soccer. Have never liked soccer. Even as a kid growing up in India, decades before I even heard of the Superbowl or NFL, I found soccer an extremely boring sport. But this post is not about why soccer is so boring. This post isn't about the banality of a "sport" that features 90 minutes of ambling around, kicking around a ball, and scoring on an average just 1-2 times during the whole excruciating period. This post isn't about a sport where it is not considered shameful to feign injuries, where convincing playacting wins games, and where referees seem even more willfully clueless than the fake referees in WWE pro wrestling. This post isn't about the utterly fallacious argument "Soccer is the #1 sport in most countries in the world, so it has to be awesome", that could also be extended to say "denying women rights and dignity is a practice prevalent in most countries in the world, so it has to be awesome".

No, this post is about the name nonsense. You know, what the "real" football is. That what's played in EPL is the only sport that can and should be called football. That churlish notion is what this post is about.

In my academic, professional, and personal life, I have gotten to know about a dozen or so Europeans and a couple of South Americans well enough to call them friends. I have had countless conversations with them, over the course of which, I have referred to Europe and South America's favorite sport as "soccer" and not "football". No eyelids were batted. No corrections were demanded. No moronic "Call it football!!!" suggestions were made. I am sure all of them think of the sport as football. But they were normal people who had better things to do in life than split hairs over the name of a game. 

But I have lost count of the number of Indians who have, rather rudely and ignorantly, interrupted me or corrected me with the occasional use of profanity, and demanded that I not call the sport soccer. As they say, the newest converts are the most extremist. And most Indians who follow soccer are the archetypal new convert extremists. India is currently ranked 165 in FIFA rankings. Snowmen have a better chance of surviving months long cruises in hell than India does of qualifying for the FIFA World Cup in this century. India's club soccer landscape is so dismal, that a documentary about it would look like Dystopian science fiction set in sub-Saharan Africa. I'm sure the bottled water budget of the newest IPL cricket team, the Pune Warriors, is more than the overall budget of all soccer tournaments played in India. Forget cricket, which is the king of sports in India. I'm sure that the revenue from the sales of Manchester United jerseys in Bombay is way more than the overall budget of all soccer tournaments played in India.

Despite the abysmal ranking and the tragic club scene, India has millions and millions of soccer fans! Or, as their hubris would force me to say, "football" fans. Now a non-Indian might wonder, how is it that a billion-strong country with millions of soccer fans is ranked lower than countries that don't even have populations close to a million? Why don't these Indian fans of the game go and watch local club soccer, support their teams, affect change and improve the fate of soccer?

The answer is simple. An overwhelming majority of self-proclaimed soccer fans in India are not really "fans" of the "sport" the way most people elsewhere are fans of sports. Scratch the surface and you'll realize that Indian soccer fans couldn't care less about the actual sport. They're just taken in by the aura surrounding the brands that European soccer has managed to cultivate and export. It's more about basking in the borrowed glory of Manchester United, Barcelona, etc. by paying ridiculous amounts of money to buy their jerseys and hats. Most Indian soccer fans couldn't tell you the difference between a banana kick and a banana split, or explain the offside rule. But they could identify the colors, logos, and brand endorsements of the top European club teams, and could tell you the keyboard shortcut to type Barca (the way any English-speaking person would type it) as Barça with that weird tail under the C to convince themselves they really know their stuff.

Well, they don't. Some do. A very few do. But most moneyed upper middle class Indians are just latching on to clubs from random European cities they couldn't even pinpoint on the map because they don't realize how completely they have been taken in by well-crafted marketing campaigns. These Indians spend more than a slum dweller's annual food budget on overpriced (but usually made in Bangladesh) jerseys, display logos on their facebook and twitter accounts, and go by nicknames like "gooner" as an expression of their utterly shallow new-convert extremism. Little wonder then, that despite dozens of European soccer clubs playing the game, 99% of Indian fans swear by one of 3 mega brands - Manchester United, Barcelona (sorry, Barça), and Arsenal.

And these Indian soccer fans are at the forefront of ignoring civility and rudely telling someone "y u call it soccer da? Call it football no macha!" and "LULWUT? y u watch rugby/NFL/AFL da? Dem no be football ra. Dey be hand-egg ra!" And of course, lazily forwarding this oh-so-cliched hand-egg picture; perfectly representative of Indian soccer fans' sporting ignorance and tendency to bask in borrowed glory - they can't even come up with their own clever rebuttals! But their ego grows a few precious microns as they do all this.

So then, which sport can stake claim to the name football? There's a short answer and a long answer. The short answer - Meh, who cares? A rose by any other name and suchlike. To give you an analogy, at any given moment, I can't tell you if I'll call India's biggest metropolis Bombay or Mumbai. I am Marathi, and in that language, we call it Mumbai. But I also grew up when the city's "official" name was Bombay and that's what we called it when speaking in English. In my mind, the names are synonymous. But there are a bunch of  folks as self-important, deluded, and rude as Indian soccer fans who can't abide by that. If they live in Shivaji Park or Goregaon, making someone say Mumbai instead of Bombay is the greatest Maratha achievement since the Battle of Wadgaon. If they live in South Bombay, making someone say Bombay instead of Mumbai is the greatest act of civil disobedience since the Salt Satyagraha. But the real answer, the short answer is - Meh, who cares?

The long answer is this. About soccer/football I mean, not that Bombay/Mumbai boondoggle. Rude soccer fans for some reason think of "soccer" as a word the Americans coined, and "football" as the pure true holy name that the noble Brits gave the sport. The long answer is vastly different. The answer steeped in history and etymology, not fallacious vapid logical shortcuts. Indian soccer fans simplistically say, as that hand-egg cliche denotes, that soccer is a game involving kicking a ball with the foot. NFL/Rugby/AFL involve carrying the ball by hands. Hence, FIFA/EPL is the "real" football. Done. Proved. Settled. QED. Elementary, my dear Watson!

Ah, Watson! Sherlock Holmes! Perfect segue!

Have you read the Sherlock Holmes story The Adventure of the Missing Three-Quarter? Not one of my favorites, but useful here. Published in 1904. The captain of the Cambridge rugby team asks Holmes to locate a missing player on the eve of a crucial match against Oxford. In that story, the sport is referred to as just "football", sans any qualifiers on three separate occasions. It is also referred to once....only once as "rugger" (as opposed to.....soccer? But more on that in a while). And as rugby, zero times.

So in the la-di-dah home of the sport, England, as a story written by one of the most famous English writers ever suggests, "football" was a term used to referred to rugby. The fact is, "football" was a generic name for a bunch of different sports, including rugby, gridiron football, soccer etc. Football was not exclusively identified even in England as the sport that is now played in the EPL. And although there isn't complete consensus on this, most scholars agree that the term "football" comes, not from kicking the ball with the foot, but the fact that the sport was played on foot. So rugby was football and soccer was football.

In fact the name soccer also originated in England (not in America!) - soccer originates from Association, because that variant of football was called association football. So soccer is the name the English came up with to explicitly distinguish the EPL/FIFA type from other types of football in the 19th and early 20th centuries. 

Across the pond in United States, once English colonies, they played mainly English sports in the 18th and 19th century. In fact, cricket was very popular before the civil war, and a team of top cricketers from England toured North America in 1859 and played in front of packed stands in Philadelphia, Hoboken, Rochester, Hamilton, and Montreal. But my cricket-loving mind digresses.

The point is, they played a lot of English sports in America those days. Including football - different types of football. If you look at the history of football, the basic point seems to be tolerance for variations. Why go into history? Even today, rugby union is markedly different from rugby league. So that kind of football, where you are on foot but carry the ball in your hands, got tinkered with in America as well. That tinkering led to what I think makes American Football so awesome - the forward pass. The pioneers were colleges who played each other in the 19th century. Finally in the early 1900s, an innovation on the scale of what IPL seemed in 2007, was made. The first ever Rose Bowl (known then as the East-West Football Game) was played between Stanford University and University of Michigan in Pasadena in 1902. That is, two years before Doyle wrote his story about the missing three-quarter.

So we can see that in the late 1800s and early 1900s, the term "football" was used in America to describe what is now played in the NFL, and by AC Doyle to describe what we know as rugby. I am sure there are also instances of people using "football" back then to refer to what is now played in the EPL. I didn't look it up. Even reading about soccer makes me sleepy. But I am sure people used football to refer to soccer as well. That's the point. It was a generic term.

The 20th century progressed and progressed fast. For socio-cultural reasons I'd rather not go into, the football that became most popular in Europe and elsewhere was the variation that involved kicking the ball around. The football that became the most popular in America and somewhat popular in Europe (under the name Rugby) was the variation where you hold the ball in your hands and run. They're all football.

Except!

Well, the thing is, it's the Europeans who invented a different name for their kicking game - soccer. FIFA governs a sport that has two names, like the Bengali bhalo naam and daak naam if you will. Both names coined by the Brits. In America or in Canada, "gridiron" football was just called football. If you're in America, football is what's played in the NFL and Canadian football is what's played in the CFL. If you're in Canada, football is what's played in the CFL and American football is what's played in the NFL. By rights, Aussies should call AFL football too, but they call it "footy", maybe for the same bizarre reason they call barbecue "Barbie". Americans didn't need a second name for their favorite game the way Europeans needed it for their favorite game. Europeans who were into soccer were probably the ancestors of Indian soccer fans, insecure and unsure, and so came up with two names.


Why do I refer to the game in the EPL by the name soccer? In the immortal words of George Mallory, "because it's there!" The name soccer is out there, put out there by Europeans, and is understood worldwide as referring to the game that involves pretending to be hurt while taking leisurely strolls, once in a while prodding the ball into a disgruntled-looking net.

So why is the sport played in EPL/FIFA soccer and not football? Because if someone says football, it could mean one of several things. But if someone says soccer, it means only one game. The game where the highest trophy shouldn't be called Golden Boot, but Golden Actor Holding His Shin Pretending To Be Hurt.

          Slain schoolboy’s uncle calls death on killers   

An uncle of murdered schoolboy Videsh Subar believes the men responsible for slitting his nephew’s throat and that of his neighbour Hafeeza Rose Mohammed should die a slow and painful death.

Speaking to the media at the Forensic Science Centre, St James, yesterday, Chandrakha Koon Koon said even if the men are held by police they should not bring them in alive.

“The boy’s mother is mad at the world right now. I believe no child should die like that and I wish they find the perpetrators and my wish is they don’t bring them in alive. I hope it comes through, this is really hard. This is a nightmare!” Koon Koon  said.

He added: “I wish them a slow, slow death. Things like this does create criminals! If you know the kind of things going through my mind right now. I wish no parents would go through this.”

Koon Koon said Subar, an aspiring musician, was looking forward to his first trip abroad to Canada with the family. He said the tickets had already been bought for the August 4 departure. The only child to his parents Lennon and Veena, Subar played three instruments, the flute, maracas (chac chac) and the tassa drum and was a lover of parang music.

Koon Koon said the night before the incident he asked Subar to spend the night at a relative and was reflecting on whether he could have been more convincing. He added that his nephew would have been a great leader in the country.

According to the autopsy done by pathologist Dr. Valery Alexandrov, both Subar and Mohammed received “mirror wounds” to the neck spanning from ear to ear. The gash on Subar’s neck was so deep it cut one of his vertebrae. Both were bound and gagged using items in the home. Mohammed’s hands were bound with the cord of a telephone charger and her bra while her feet were bound with a bed sheet. Subar’s hands were bound with a shoe lace and his feet with a rubber chord. His mouth was taped with clear scotch tape.

Police said they received critical information on the case and are confident of an arrest. On Wednesday police said they suspected the killings were linked to a nearly decade-old robbery. But yesterday, they said checks to their records of eight years ago revealed no reports of a break-in at Mohammed’s Ajim Baskh Street, Malabar home.

I have known about mindat.org for many years but recently joined to better participate. I am a retired physicist with a strong background in the fields of solid state, crystallography, piezoelectricity, and materials science. I was elected a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America in 2000 for my contributions to the field of transducers. I know quite a bit about sound generation, propagation, and detection in various media including solids.

One of my daughters is a geologist and when both daughters were living at home, we spent many years rockhounding around our province of Nova Scotia, Canada as a family. I still go on field trips and have set up a small research lab area plus a rock and mineral studio. I live near some of the best gypsum sites in Nova Scotia and have begun working with gypsum as an art material. I refer to my studio as GypsumWorks Studio and hope to post some gallery photos on this site once I become more familiar with uploading photos and creating galleries. I uploaded one photo successfully so it's a start.

Plan to write a few articles and get to know other users. I used to write HTML code so that will come back to me quickly.

I was in San Francisco for work and celebrated a productive morning with an out-of-the-way lunch. This is Palmyra.

I got the Kibbi platter, which consists of:
Four shells of mashed cracked wheat stuffed with ground beef, sauteed onions, and pine nuts served with a side of hummus, cucumber salad, pita, garlic sauce, and hot sauce.

The kibbi was/were delicious. Not greasy or heavy at all. My only complaint was that it only came with four pieces.

          Adolescente autodidata de São José do Egito leva música do Sertão ao Canadá   
Quando era pequeno, o pernambucano Everson Heleno Aguiar costumava garimpar discos e filmes nas feiras livres de São José do Egito, no Sertão pernambucano, onde ele nasceu. Pechinchava junto aos comerciantes, recolhendo os vídeos de apresentações de violeiros e teleaulas de dedilhado ao violão. Nas noites de domingo, enquanto colocava as últimas aquisições do dia para tocar, começava a esperar pelo fim de semana seguinte. Vendo filmes e ouvindo discos, semana a semana, Everson aprendeu a tocar violão. Não imaginava que as cordas um dia o levariam ao Canadá.

Aos 17 anos, o mais novo dos três filhos de um casal de agricultores cursa o terceiro ano do ensino médio na Escola Técnica Estadual Célia Siqueira, em São José do Egito, no Sertão do Pajeú. Há anos, todas as manhãs, chega para a aula com o violão sobre os ombros. O instrumento só é deixado no armário quando a chuva desaba sobre a região, cobrindo de lama a Zona Rural do município, onde ele vive com a família - antes do rapaz lançar-se sobre os mais de 20 km que separam a residência e o centro de ensino, na garupa da motocicleta do pai. "O violão foi presente do meu irmão mais velho e não me separo dele para nada", conta. Foi em um de seus dias comuns, o violão nas costas, que recebeu a notícia: seria um dos dez primeiros estudantes pernambucanos contemplados pelo Programa Ganhe o Mundo Musical, oferecido pelo governo do estado a alunos da rede pública com habilidades musicais, e estudaria por cinco meses em Manitoba, no Canadá.

"O lugar mais distante de casa que eu conhecia era o Recife, porque uma das etapas de seleção para o intercâmbio foi uma entrevista no Conservatório Pernambucano de Música, na capital. Nunca imaginei viajar para fora do Brasil", lembra o estudante, que embarcou para o país estrangeiro em agosto de 2016. Para quem cresceu tomando emprestados violões de vizinhos e familiares na tentativa de desenvolver um talento inato, Everson se adaptou com facilidade às primeiras aulas formais de música na Brandon University - oferecidas em paralelo aos estudos regulares. "Ganhei técnica e teoria. É como se agora eu fosse capaz de realmente sentir a música, as notas, muito mais do que antes", avalia. O pernambucano foi acolhido pelo casal canadense Jennifer e Jared Jaffray e viveu com os filhos deles, os pequenos London e Paige, de 4 e 3 anos, respectivamente - 'eles me deram meses inesquecíveis", lembra.
A mais de 8 mil quilômetros da cidade de Brandon, o agricultor Heleno Cícero de Aguiar, 53, e a esposa, a agricultora Maria do Socorro da Conceição Aguiar, 50, aprenderam com o filho a manusear um tablet antes da partida dele – foi o canal de comunicação da família durante o intercâmbio. "Criei os perfis deles no Facebook, para me enviarem mensagens. De primeira, não queriam que eu fosse. Eles tinham muito medo, era tudo novo, desconhecido. Depois concordaram, ficaram mais tranquilos porque prometi me comunicar. Mas foi muita saudade...", conta. Ele ainda se emociona ao resgatar a separação da família, sobretudo do pai, a quem é especialmente apegado.

A permissão para o carimbo no passaporte de Everson teria sido, além de um gesto de esperança quanto aos sonhos do filho, um voto de confiança na escola em que ele estuda: o gestor da ETE Célia Siqueira, Niedson Amaral, tornou-se agente decisivo na missão de convencer o casal de agricultores sobre o valor daquela oportunidade. Foi Niedson quem conduziu o garoto muitas vezes ao Recife nos meses anteriores à viagem, a fim de resolver toda a burocracia necessária ao embarque internacional. "Acompanhei os pais na partida e no retorno, no aeroporto. Nesse intervalo, Everson amadureceu longe de casa de maneira perceptível. Sempre foi um menino curioso, interessado em aprender. Mas agora é menos tímido, tem mais segurança para tomar decisões. Isso transformou o receio dos pais em gratidão", testemunha. Na Célia Siqueira, três estudantes participaram do Ganhe o Mundo em 2015, outros três embarcaram em 2016. Em 2017, serão 13 representantes em países como Canadá, Chile e Estados Unidos, entre os 450 alunos.

"Eu tenho o sentimento de quem não sabe nem como agradecer a Deus. Não existem as palavras para isso... para um pai que sempre foi agricultor, que sempre foi pobre, e ver seu filho ganhar uma chance que ele mesmo nunca poderia dar", diz Heleno Cícero, escolhendo as frases com cuidado, cutucando a emoção. "Com pouca instrução", como ele descreve a si mesmo e a esposa, Heleno e Maria do Socorro criaram três filhos em São José do Egito. O mais velho, Emerson Heleno, estuda engenharia em São Paulo, enquanto o filho do meio, Vanderson Heleno, cursa engenharia no Recife. "Eu quero ser engenheiro também. Ou talvez eu seja repórter, porque sempre gostei das coisas que um repórter faz", diz Everson, reestabelecido em casa após o intercâmbio, de onde regressou em janeiro, assim como outros mais de mil estudantes da rede estadual de ensino contemplados no programa em 2016.

E a música? A pergunta surge inevitável e flutua à sua frente. "Sobre a música eu nem tenho o que dizer. O violão é a única coisa de que eu tenho certeza nessa vida. O violão me deu tudo isso, essa aventura toda. Independentemente de ser engenheiro ou jornalista, nunca vou deixar de tocar", reflete. É com o instrumento nos ombros que Everson volta todas as noites ao Sítio Borges, onde sua viagem a outro mundo virou lenda e onde seu domínio sobre as seis cordas encanta os agricultores de São José do Egito, preenchendo o silêncio que têm as noites do Sertão.

The Morning Heresy is your daily digest of news and links relevant to the secular and skeptic communities.

While the very fabric of space-time warped and undulated over the Trump-Morning Joe conflict (we’ll get to that), Republicans in the House finance subcommittee worked up a scheme to neutralize the Johnson Amendment. The proposed rule would deny the IRS the funds it would need to investigate Johnson Amendment violations…for churches only. That’s right, no mention of other nonprofits, no mention of other houses of worship. We joined a big coalition of groups opposing the measure, and I did the equivalent of marching up and down, toddler-Bart-Simpson style, making noise about it.

But you know, the fabric of space time. Undulating and whatnot. About that:

After Trump did his dumbass Trump thing that he does, Sarah Huckabee Sanders attempted to justify the president’s behavior as some kind of proportional response to bullying (????), and when asked who she could point to as a role model, she defaulted to God. That’s fine, but you’d think a couple human role models would be useful in a pinch. Maybe keep a couple of those in your back pocket. Just a thought.

More fun was the op-ed by Mika and Joe themselves, where they threw so much shade it looked like an eclipse. They said Trump wasn’t mentally healthy enough to watch Morning Joe, and made the charge that Trump had blackmailed them with the threat of a negative National Inquirer article.

David Roberts at Vox tries to come to grips with what the hell is wrong with the man, and why it’s so hard to figure it out:

Trump defies our theory of mind because he appears to lack a coherent, persistent self or worldview. He is a raging fire of need, protected and shaped by a lifetime of entitlement, with the emotional maturity and attention span of a 6-year-old, utterly unaware of the long-term implications of his actions. ... Politicos and journalists need a story in which Trump’s stumbling and grasping can be construed as a savvy media strategy, a “distraction” from some other wrongdoing he has going on, or a “pivot” from his current omnishambles. Those are all versions of political maneuvering with which they are familiar. They need for Trump to want things, to be after things, to have a plan. ... But there’s no there there.

CFI Los Angeles chief Jim Underdown recoils at the utter plausibility of The Handmaid’s Tale, and laments that the star of the TV version, Elizabeth Moss, is herself a Scientologist:

What doesn’t fit is that the Church of Scientology could be a central character in The Handmaid’s Tale TV series. For decades we’ve been hearing real-life stories from ex-Scientologists that sound like they could be plots in the series.   

Nikhil Sonnad at Quartz does a great service, cataloguing how Alex Jones’ Infowars store and Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop store and the Moon Juice store all sell the same snake oil.

Speaking of Alex Jones (if we must), he had a guest, Robert David Steele, who said this:

This may strike your listeners as way out but we actually believe that there is a colony on Mars that is populated by children who were kidnapped and sent into space on a 20 year ride. So that once they get to Mars they have no alternative but to be slaves on the Mars colony.  

Now, Jones does seem to distance himself from this idea a tad (“Well I don’t know about Mars bases”), but don’t give him too much credit! Or any! Because then he says this:

I know they’ve created massive, thousands of different types of chimeras that are alien lifeforms on this earth now. 

Just in case you’re wondering, NASA denies the allegation. Well, of course they would. Pfft.

In Bizarro America, aka Canada, a new survey shows that the electorate would prefer an atheist, gay, or transgender prime minister over an evangelical Christian. 

CFI’s new intern Andy Ngo thinks back to the Orlando massacre one year ago, and how the discourse about it has been too diffuse, asking, “While it is imperative to prevent and condemn discrimination against Muslims, why does that have to come at the cost of speaking openly about religious fundamentalism, particularly Islamism?”

South Africa will no longer have single-religion public schools. (A group lobbying for this change, the Organisasie vir Godsdienste-Onderrig en Demokrasie, has the greatest acronym ever: OGOD.) 

Australian homeopathics company Brauer is being investigated for promoting an ebook that advocates the use of homeopathy to treat babies and toddlers.  

Theologian and sociologist Peter Berger has died at the age of 88. I don’t know much about most of his work, but his book The Social Construction of Reality blew my mind when I read it in college a million years ago.

          Como a falta de sono afeta seu cérebro   

Elenathewise

Elenathewise

Cientistas do Canadá lançaram o que promete ser o maior estudo do mundo sobre os efeitos da falta de sono no cérebro.

Publicado na BBC Brasil

Eles esperam que pessoas de todo o mundo se registrem pela internet para fazer testes cognitivos e participar do experimento.

Jogos de computador testarão habilidades como raciocínio, compreensão da linguagem e tomada de decisões.

O estudo é coordenado pelo neurocientista britânico Adrian Owen, do Instituto de Cérebro e Mente da Universidade Western, no Canadá.

“Sabemos como nos sentimos após uma noite mal dormida, mas conhecemos muito pouco sobre os efeitos da falta de sono no cérebro. Queremos ver como isso afeta a cognição, a memória e a habilidade de concentração”, diz ele.

A equipe irá analisar o desempenho dos participantes nos testes cognitivos e avaliar os diferentes resultados a partir das horas dormidas.

A necessidade diária de sono varia de pessoa para pessoa, mas se o estudo conseguir reunir um número significativo de voluntários, permitirá aos cientistas determinar um número médio de horas necessárias para a otimização da função cerebral.

O repórter da BBC Fergus Walsh e mais quatro voluntários passaram a noite na Universidade Western, onde testaram os jogos e puderam verificar como a falta de sono afeta o desempenho cognitivo.

Voluntários

Hooman Ganjavi, 42 anos, psiquiatra, acostumado a fazer plantões noturnos: “Durmo apenas de quatro a cinco horas por noite. Sei que a falta de sono aumenta o risco de doenças cardíacas e de derrame, mas, como muitos médicos, não aplico essas regras ao meu dia a dia”.

Sylvie Salewski, 31 anos, mãe de duas meninas pequenas: “Para mim uma boa noite de sono é quando elas me acordam duas ou três vezes; não consigo me lembrar do que é dormir uma noite toda sem ser incomodada; normalmente me sinto meio desnorteada no dia seguinte”.

Evan Agnew, 75 anos, vigia aposentado: “Nunca dormi mais de oito horas de sono por noite, e na minha idade não acho que preciso de mais de quatro horas. Acabo complementando meu sono durante o dia com um ou dois cochilos”.

Cecilia Kramar, 31 anos, neurocientista que faz pesquisas cognitivas com camundongos noturnos, o que significa passar noites em claro no laboratório: “Quando não durmo muito, não consigo fazer nada complicado no dia seguinte, como ler uma revista científica, porque meu cérebro não funciona bem”.

Owen Lab, Western Image caption Testes foram refeitos depois de noite mal dormida

_96396318_spatialplanning

Testes

Os testes podem ser jogados em qualquer computador, tablet ou smartphone.

Double Trouble: Você deve clicar na palavra debaixo que corresponde à cor na qual a palavra acima está escrita. Exemplo: se a palavra na linha superior é “azul”, mas está em vermelho, você deve clicar na palavra da linha inferior que também está em vermelho, mesmo se estiver escrito “azul”.

Odd One Out: Começa simples, mas vai se tornando cada vez mais complexo. Você tem de achar o objeto que não pertence ao grupo.

Grammatical reasoning: A afirmação sobre o diagrama é verdadeira ou falsa? Parece fácil, até você começar a lidar com negações.

Spatial planning: O jogo testa a habilidade de planejar com antecedência – como todos os jogos, mede as competências cognitivas que usamos repetidamente durante todo o dia.

Desempenho

“Depois de ficarmos acordados até as 4h, podemos dormir por 4h. Quando refizemos os testes cognitivos durante a manhã, Evan, Cecilia e eu tivemos um desempenho muito pior do que na noite anterior”, conta o repórter da BBC.

Hooman – que está acostumado a ficar de plantão – não registrou uma variação negativa em sua pontuação, enquanto que a de Sylvie chegou, inclusive, a melhorar.

“Embora fique um pouco desnorteada durante a manhã, talvez tenha me acostumado a funcionar com pouco sono. Tenho de estar funcionando assim que meus filhos acordam, então é normal para mim”, disse Sylvie.

Sempre soube que não funciono direito quando não durmo bem, então para mim não foi surpresa que minha pontuação tenha caído dramaticamente durante a manhã.

No caso de Walsh, da BBC, para descobrir o que estava acontecendo com seu cérebro, ele repetiu os testes cognitivos dentro de uma máquina de tomografia computadorizada.

“Meu cérebro foi examinado duas vezes – depois de uma noite de sono normal e logo depois de uma noite mal dormida. A tomografia é capaz de detectar o fluxo de sangue no meu cérebro – as áreas que estão trabalhando mais intensamente são identificadas pelas manchas laranjas”, explica.

A comparação entre as duas imagens não deixou dúvidas: por causa da falta de sono, o cérebro do jornalista apresentou um nível de atividade bem baixa.

“Há muito menos atividade nos lobos frontal e parietais – áreas que sabemos serem cruciais para a tomada de decisões, a solução de problemas e a memória”, explica Owen, o coordenador do estudo.

Todos nós sabemos que é perigoso dirigir quando estamos cansados, porque nosso tempo de reação diminui e podemos dormir ao volante.

Mas os efeitos da falta de sono no nosso cotidiano são bem menos compreendidos.

“Pode ser que a falta de sono esteja tendo efeitos muito profundos na tomada de decisão e talvez a gente devesse evitar tomar decisões importantes como comprar uma casa ou mesmo se casar depois de uma noite mal dormida”, avalia Owen.

Resultado

Passamos praticamente um terço das nossas vidas dormindo. Ou seja, o sono é tão vital para a nossa saúde quanto os alimentos que ingerimos e o ar que respiramos.

Mas nossa cultura de estarmos ligados durante 24 horas por dia está reduzindo nossas horas de sono.

No mês passado, um estudo na revista científica Nature Reviews Neuroscience apontou que havia “uma compreensão notavelmente pequena” das consequências da falta de sono crônica para o cérebro.

A pesquisa dizia que mais estudos são necessários face ao que chamou de “declínio considerável da duração de sono em todas as nações industrializadas”.

          Comment on Giving the finger by Then there's that   
Venezuela is home to one the largest reserves of tar sands in the world. I'm trying to figure out how it might be economically feasible for TransCanada to mine tar sands in northeast Alberta, Canada, transport those heavy tar sands via heated, pressurized pipe, 2925 miles across the United States - paying royalties to every land owner along the way and taxes to every state - all the way to Port Arthur, Texas. In Texas the toxic sludge is extracted from the pipeline to be shipped to and loaded on tankers. Tankers that will transport it another ship 2194 miles (as the crow flies) to Caracas, Venezuela, where is is again unloaded and stored as the heavy sludge awaits the expensive process of refining before it is then loaded back on to a tanker for shipment across the globe, to China. Come on, Bluejay. The gig is up. You and bynd have got to be closely related. The original brothers Darrell and Darrell, am I right?

          BB creams- newest beauty buzz   
 
If you haven’t already heard some of the buzz on BB creams, you will — you’ll be seeing a lot of them over the next several months.So, what are BB creams? If you think of this stuff as a miracle cream, you’ll be underwhelmed. But if you think of it as a one-step makeup time saver — great. BB creams are multi-taskers that combine skincare ingredients with moisturizer, primer, foundation and SPF.

After reading countless reviews and recommendations, I was still pretty hesitant to jump on the BB bandwagon.  As many of you know, I don't really need any more makeup tubes in my makeup drawer and I'm hesitant with trying out new foundations without testing it out first...


However, when I saw the Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream staring back at me from the shelves of my local CVS - at a reasonable $12.99 - I figured I had to give it a shot, right?  And the verdict is in...I'm in love!  This product takes the place of a moisturizer, primer and foundation in one, shortening my morning routine by a mile.  It also actually gives really nice, buildable coverage.  That says a lot coming from a medium to full coverage foundation girl.  It also keeps my T-zone from looking shiny and sets up to a beautiful, satin finish that holds up incredibly well throughout the day.

          Gildan Releases Its 2016 CSR Report    

(Marketwire) Gildan Activewear Inc. (GIL; TSX and NYSE) has released its 2016 corporate, social and environmental responsibility (CSR) report on the Company’s dedicated CSR website genuinegildan.com. The report is aligned with the new Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, offering a comprehensive online review on the progress of Gildan’s commitments to its people, communities, the environment and products. 

“As one of the world’s largest manufacturers of apparel and socks, we understand that operating responsibly and integrating sustainable solutions drives our success and enables our future growth,” said Glenn Chamandy, President and CEO, Gildan. “Providing good working conditions for our employees, improving the communities where we operate and pursuing continuous improvements to reduce our impacts on future generations is at the foundation of our commitment.”

Making Apparel Better™

As a large scale vertically-integrated manufacturer, Gildan is able to maintain strict control over the conditions under which its products are manufactured. Close to 90% of Gildan’s revenues are derived from products that are manufactured in Company-owned and operated facilities. “Gildan was founded on the vision that owning its factories, investing in technology and pursuing continuous improvements was the best way to operate and to make better products,” said Glenn Chamandy. “Our continued investments in our vertical integration are at the foundation of our business strategy and the key to our ability to positively influence every part of the overall production process including all activities across our four CSR pillars: People, Environment, Community and Product,” he added.

Navigating the road towards Gildan’s 2020 environmental goals

In 2016, Gildan demonstrated good progress towards its 2020 environmental goals which call for a 10% reduction in energy, water, GHG emissions and landfill waste intensity, per kg of product, from owned operations, when compared to the 2015 baseline year.

In 2016, Gildan’s efficiency initiatives resulted in a reduction of its energy intensity by 10% and water intensity by 5%. The Company increased its industrial and domestic recycling programs globally to now recycle or repurpose 86% of total waste. Additionally, the Company powered 32% of its energy needs by renewable resources.

The Company is continuing to integrate manufacturing capacity from recent acquisitions and is firmly committed to meeting its 2020 GHG goal, by pursuing various initiatives including increasing its use of renewable resources such as biomass. The Company has a number of projects in research and development that hold promise to help meet its 2020 goals, and propel it along the next phase of its environmental journey.

Investments in Local Communities

As part of its commitment to Making Apparel BetterTM, Gildan has contributed close to $2 million towards projects in local communities in the U.S., Canada and Latin America in 2016. Some of these projects include:

  • The construction of a new infant ward for the Mario Catarino Rivas Hospital in Honduras which provides care and services to more than 3,000 infants annually. The newly expanded ward will not only reduce overcrowding at the hospital, but also help to lower mortality rates.

  • A partnership with World Vision Honduras for the “Building Safe and Healthy Environments for Children” program. In addition, Gildan made a commitment with the Ministry of Education to fully sponsor renovation projects for 10 schools in the Sula Valley, improving the school conditions for approximately 4,000 children.

  • Over 450 scholarships awarded to Gildan employees and community members to attend professional and vocational schools in Canada, the U.S. and Latin America.

  • Relief to communities in need due to several weather-related disasters that created difficult situations for residents:

    • Gildan donated to UNICEF and Americares for the relief efforts in Haiti following Hurricane Matthew, as well as provided food and water kits to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
    • During the Fort McMurray, Alberta wildfires, the Company donated clothing items, including sweatshirts, t-shirts, underwear and socks to the over 88,000 evacuees. 
    • Gildan responded to the call for basic necessities for the families displaced by the Louisiana, USA floods, with the distribution of products including t-shirts, socks and underwear though the St. Vincent of Paul Society.

Recognition and Awards

In recognition of Gildan’s efforts to distinguish itself in the apparel industry through its CSR efforts, Gildan was again included on the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World Index) for the fourth consecutive year.  The Company remains the only North American company in the Textiles, Apparel and Luxury Goods industry group listed in the DJSI World Index. 

In Latin America, Gildan was recognized with a Distintivo ESR 2016 award for the first time, presented by the Mexican Center for Philanthropy (Cemefi) and the Alliance for Corporate Social Responsibility (Aliarse).  This award is presented to companies that are considered leaders in their corporate social responsibility efforts.

          Recent Lightning Shots   
After living on the road with the TVN crew for several months (and driving 25,000 + miles), I've returned back to my normal life and it just isn't quite as exciting. So I venture out on these 'under the ridge' days, (where pulse storms generally form from just heat and a weak cap...or from enough convergence along an old outflow boundary/ weak cold front) and try to regain that same intensity as before, but I generally just get disappointed.

I've been focusing on doing more time-lapse photography with the 5D Mark II and using an intervalometer which is amazing and I'll probably make a video in the next couple of years. The plan for 2011, is re-join the TVN crew till around the middle of June, then venture out solo for a couple of months after that--chasing the Northern Plains and Canada for slower moving storms/supercells and doing strictly time-lapse photography of everything I encounter.

Below are some lightning photos I've taken in the past couple of weeks...more to come at some point. You can catch my other blog posts over at tornadovideos.net as well,as I'm assisting over there when needed.

          Gilberto Santa Rosa arrancará una gira mundial en República Dominicana   

SANTO DOMINGO. Gilberto Santa Rosa arrancará su gira mundial de celebración de 40 años en la música en República Dominicana, el próximo 7 de septiembre, en el Gran Teatro del Cibao y seguirá 8 y 9 de septiembre en el Teatro Nacional Eduardo Brito.

El Caballero de la Salsa dio a conocer detalles de “40... y contando” ayer, en una conferencia de prensa con medios de América Latina vía streming desde su Puerto Rico natal.

Costa Rica, Panamá, Chile, Argentina, Colombia, Uruguay, España, Canadá, Perú, Estados Unidos y México son los países hasta ahora incluidos en la gira.

“Ha sido una travesía bien interesante, con cosas buenas, otras menos buenas. Pero las buenas han sido muchas más”, expresó Santa Rosa sobre su carrera, que le ha permitido hacer lo que le gusta, desde su propio país, donde ha vivido y se mantiene y desde donde gira al mundo. “Tengo en Puerto Rico casa y plaza”, sentenció. “Los compañeros míos de todas las generaciones me han dado su cariño, su respeto, su abrazo. Los que llegaron antes que yo, los que llegaron conmigo y los que llegaron después de mí. Pues todo eso lo vamos a celebrar en esta gira de “40... y contando”, manifestó con orgullo.

“Pretendo cantar 40 títulos en cada show, así que... Oremos a ver si sale. Y que salga. Voy a tener el respaldo de excelentes músicos y en algunos lugares artistas invitados”, dijo el intérprete que tendrá su debut en solitario en el Auditorio Nacional de México, donde antes se ha presentado pero junto a otros artistas.

          De bares a estadios: Lady Gaga se prepara para su nueva gira    

NUEVA YORK. Sea en un bar o en un campo de béisbol, Lady Gaga dice que lo dará todo en cada actuación.

La cantante sale este verano en una gira por estadios alrededor del mundo, y también regresará al Dive Bar Tour con Bud Light para un espectáculo en Las Vegas el 13 de julio.

Su primera serie de conciertos en bares, que terminó el año pasado cerca del lanzamiento de su álbum “Joanne”, la calificó como una experiencia profunda.

“Cuando me paraba ahí olvidaba por completo dónde estábamos y entraba en modo de actuación”, dijo Gaga en una entrevista telefónica. “Para mí, no importa cuán pequeño sea el recinto, uno no actúa distinto a como lo haría en un lugar grande, no sería justo con los fans”.

El club del año pasado incluyó una parada en The Bitter End, el bar de Nueva York donde Gaga cantaba antes de alcanzar el estrellato. La nueva gira Dive Bar también incluirá presentaciones en Los Ángeles (26 de julio) y Nueva Orleans (30 de agosto), y será encabezada por otros artistas aún por anunciarse.

Gaga, de 31 años, comienza su gira mundial el 1 de agosto en Vancouver, Canadá. Actuará en estadios como el Citi Field en Nueva York, el AT&T Park en San Francisco, el Wrigley Field en Chicago y el Fenway Park en Boston.

Ahora que terminó de filmar la película “A Star is Born” con Bradley Cooper — una experiencia dijo fue “maravillosa” e “inspiradora”, que “cambia la vida” — está enfocada en su enorme gira.

“Esta va a ser un poco diferente”, señaló. “Me gusta cambiar las cosas. Tengo algunas ideas de cómo me gustaría interpretar algunos de los clásicos para mis fans”.

Parte del cambio deriva del sonido de “Joanne”, que incluye rock, country y temas más lentos en comparación con sus éxitos bailables del pasado, con sonidos electrónicos.

“El álbum fue extremadamente sanador y reflexivo para mí. Escribí sobre cosas que nunca había escrito antes que son extremadamente profundas y personales, y me atrevo a decir, cosas que me acecharon, que me estaban envenenando, que eran tóxicas para mí y las saqué. Fue muy revelador en ese sentido”, dijo.

“Y la portada del álbum es muy indicativa de eso”, agregó. “Yo, poniéndome un sombrero que no había usado antes sin estar segura hacia dónde voy, pero sabiendo que tengo que salir de donde me encuentro”.

El pasado abril el festival de Coachella, que Gaga encabezó, la cantante lanzó “The Cure”, una canción animada sobre sanación.

Dijo que la escribió tras su actuación en el medio tiempo del Super Bowl, que está escribiendo nueva música y que podría lanzar otro tema no relacionado con el álbum.

“No diría que es imposible”, indicó.

          Psyche - Re-membering Dwayne 16,99 €   
At the end of 1981, brothers Darrin and Stephen Huss and schoolmate Dwayne Goettel performed for the first time as Psyche in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Their live show was a combination of horror and electronics that was completely unprecedented in Western Canada. Although Goettel and the Huss brothers parted ways before Psyche was to release any material, the masters containing Dwayne Goettel's performances were preserved in the band's vaults.

Now, 19 years after Goettel's untimely passing in 1995, Dark Entries records presents "Re-Membering Dwayne", the original Psyche-Dwayne Goettel sessions. All tracks were recorded and mixed on 4-track during a single day in March of 1983. Psyche's early material is visceral and abrasive, a far cry from the sleek, dark synthpop they'd later become known for. Like the body horror films of fellow Canadian David Cronenberg, Psyche disquietingly conflate the organic and the mechanical, calling into question the limits of the human form. Dwayne, who would join Skinny Puppy a few years later, contributes heavily to this more aggressive, disturbing sound.

All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Each LP includes a 12-page booklet with excerpts from Darrin Huss' diary, unpublished photos of Psyche with Dwayne, and an essay by Darrin reflecting on Psyche's past and the Goettel legacy as well as lyrics. This collection is a glimpse at the early Canadian industrial scene and the roots of Skinny Puppy. Go take a walk in the past with an ear for the future; you just might learn something.

This year marks two 150th anniversaries. The places we know today as Canada and Alaska are marking their sesquicentennials with historical exhibits, concerts, and other events.

As suas folhas não desejam apressar-nos:
Elas são rotundas e planas e plenas de conselhos negros.

Palavras frias sacodem-se do remo.
O espírito das trevas está em nós, está nos peixes.
Um obstáculo ergue uma pálida mão, de despedida;

Estrelas abrem-se entre lírios.
Não estás cego por estas sereias inexpressivas?
Este é o silêncio de almas aturdidas.

This one game gave happiness to Muslims from Sirinagar to Medina to UK to Canada to Turkey...it burnt the tails of Mushriks... Allahu Akbar !!
*جیت*
آج میں ایک افطاری پر مدعو تھا. بس میچ کے ابتدائی بیس اورز دیکھے. بیس اورز کے بعد میں نے صرف پاکستانیوں کو دیکھا. میں نے پل پل بتدریج خوشی سے دمکتے چہرے دیکھے. میں نے بچوں بڑوں بوڑھوں خواتین کو بلاوجہ خوش و مسکراتے دیکھا. میں نے اُن لوگوں کو بھی دلچسپی لیتے دیکھا جو کرکٹ کی ابتدائی ابجد سے بھی واقف نہیں تھے.
واپسی میں میچ مکمل ہوچکا تھا. جیت رقم ہو چکی تھی.
میں نے گلیوں میں سب کو مسکراتے دیکھا. میں نے موٹر سائیکلوں پر جوانوں کو پرچم اٹھائے یہاں وہاں دوڑتے دیکھا.
میں نے ٹریفک جام میں بھی کسی کو پریشان نہ دیکھا. میں نے گاڑیوں کے شیشوں سے اجنبیوں کیلئے لہراتے ہاتھ دیکھے. میں نے ٹریفک و عام پولیس کو بھی سب کو پیار سے ہاتھ ہلاتے دیکھا.
ہاں گھر واپسی تک
میں نے کسی جماعت کا پرچم نہ دیکھا. میں نے بس صرف پاکستانی دیکھے. انکو خوش ہوتے دیکھا. ٹی وی پر ہر طرف خوشیاں دیکھی. فخر دیکھا، طمانیت دیکھی.
کرکٹ کسی قوم کیلئے کھیل ہوگا. لیکن میں نے اپنی قوم کیلئے اسے وقت موجود واحد اتفاق کی زنجیر بنتے دیکھا. سری نگر سے خیبر تک گوادر سے قصور تک کراچی سے وانا تک........
آج سارا صرف پاکستان تھا.
آج سارا پاکستان سرشار تھا.
ہاں ہم جیت گئے. یہی جیت کہلاتی ہے.
اس آخر شب رب العالمین سے دعا ہے کہ یہ قوم بہت دکھ دیکھ چکی. اب اسے کھیل کے علاوہ سیاست سے ریاست تک جیت سے آشنا کردے.
ہمیں ایک کردے.
آمين يارب العالمين

In 1921 President Harding appointed former President Taft Chief Justice of the United States. In 1934 Adolf Hitler began his "blood purge" of political and military leaders in Germany. In 1936 the novel Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell was published in New York. In 1962 Los Angeles Dodger Hall-of-Famer Sandy Koufax pitched his first no-hitter in a game with the New York Mets. In 1963 Pope Paul VI was crowned the 262nd head of the Roman Catholic Church. In 1971 a Soviet space mission ended in tragedy when three cosmonauts aboard Soyuz 11 were found dead inside their spacecraft after it had returned to Earth; also on this day, the 26th Amendment to the Constitution, lowering the minimum voting age to 18, was ratified when Ohio became the 38th state to approve it.

          Canada's Gabriel Resources sues Romania for a record C$5.7bn   
Canadian project developer Gabriel Resources is suing Romania for a record C$5.7-billion before the World Bank's International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), the TSX-listed company revealed on Thursday. The company hopes to tie up a drawn out dispute with the country’s fluid government, based on what it argues boils down to the effective expropriation, without compensation, of its flagship Roşia Montană gold/silver project – the largest undeveloped gold deposit in Europe and among the top 20 undeveloped gold projects globally.

Today you will find out from our favorite dating consultant, Jessica Coyle.

You’ll also get some new English dating vocabulary and terms that you can use in the real world!

 

What should we do if we have just had a good date:

(1) Send a text message that evening and say:

  • “I had a really nice time.”
  • “Had a great time tonight. (I) Would like to see you again.”
  • “It was really nice meeting you, let’s hit up (go to) the MOMA.”
  • “Thanks so much for a great time.”
  • “I enjoyed meeting you.”

 

(2) Jessica likes to research the person online after a good first date to find out more about the person.

 

If you had a bad date you can say:

  • “I didn’t feel any chemistry but best of luck.”
  • “I got more of a friend vibe.”

Key vocab from today:

  • To ghost someone: To disappear and stop communicating after you have been on a date
  • To do the fade-away: Similar to ghosting (see above)
  • A vibe: A general feeling or impression
  • To go Dutch: To split the bill

Today we have our dating consultant, Jessica Coyle, back on the show!

Today Jessica is back to talk about the concept of chemistry in dating in urban US culture.

Jessica is going to tell us how to know if we actually have chemistry with someone.

Chemistry: A magnetic pull between two people where you seem to understand the other person and something is different about that person to you.

 Two different types of chemistry:

  • Slow burn chemistry: You start out as friends and then chemistry and attraction gradually builds over time. Features of the other person that seemed strange or unattractive initially start to become endearing and attractive.
  • Quick chemistry/limerance: This is more of an infatuation. Jessica thinks that online dating and set ups reward this type of attraction. These connections can be really intense at first and then can fizzle out and not end well. At the same time, sometimes these attractions can work in the long run.

 

What about in your culture?

What are your deal breakers when it comes to dating?

In your culture, how much influence do your parents and family have when it comes to your choice of a partner?

 

Here are some dating vocabulary words that we talked about today:

  • Limerance
  • Lukewarm feelings
  • Slow burn chemistry
  • Quirks (personality and physical)
  • Deal breakers
  • Red Flag

          AEE 281: 3 Easy Ways to Connect with a Local Canadian in English   

Will you be visiting Ottawa someday?

Today, meet Kathleen from Canada, and get 3 phrases to connect with locals in the capital city, Ottawa!

 

Canada is a multicultural and diverse country, and Ottawa is a micro version of that.  It’s a city of one million inhabitants and numerous languages.  It is also a city in touch with nature.  With four distinct seasons, Ottawa has something for everyone.

Though Canada and the United States have some similarities, they also have many differences.  Among these are some subtle differences in using the English language. This includes pronunciation and some commonly used phrases.

Here are Kathleen’s top Canadian phrases to help you blend in when you’re in Ottawa!

  • I’m sorry: Canadians are known for being very polite.  In fact, the culture can be so polite it becomes apologetic.  Sometimes Canadians will begin a sentence, “I’m sorry,” even if they did nothing wrong and aren’t apologizing for anything.
  • Out and About: This means to go exploring or to check something out. A Canadian might say “Let’s go out and about,” or “I was out and about.”
  • Eh?: Often, this word is used the way an American might use the words “right?” or “huh?”  It shows agreement or clarification with other people.  You might hear someone say, “That was a great show, eh?”

 

Are you going to Ottawa, or Canada?

Have you ever been there?

Kathleen is a native English speaker from Ottawa, Canada. She has been teaching and tutoring students in  English and beginner French for over three years in Asia, Latin America and Canada. She also speaks French and Spanish, and so understands the challenges and joys of learning a new language. In her experience, conversation is the best way to improve language skills.

Kathleen has worked and continues to work in the areas of community development, and is currently completing her Bachelor of Education.  This summer she will be teaching in Ulaanbataar, Mongolia. She loves meeting people from different cultures and learning new languages.


          AEE 280: Spark the Conversation! 4 Topics to Use on a First Date in English   

Are you dating in English?

Today, we welcome back dating expert Jessica Coyle to give you four easy topics for conversation when dating!

 

Conversation can be tricky on a first date.  You might be nervous, and it can be hard to know what’s safe to talk about.  Jessica has a great acronym to help you with simple, safe discussion topics.  It’s FORD, and it stands for:

  • Friends: If you have mutual friends, ask how your date met them.  Or, if you don’t have mutual friends, ask if your date knows anybody in the area where you’re meeting.
  • Occupation: Asking about another person’s job is usually a good conversation starter.  You might say, “What do you do with your time?”  That way, if your date happens to be unemployed, they are still able to give an answer.
  • Recreation: Ask about what somebody likes to do for fun. You might follow up by asking, “How often do you get to do that?”
  • Dreams: This is good for asking hypothetical questions. You could ask things like “Where do you see yourself in ten years?” or “What would you do if you had a billion dollars?”

 

People love talking about themselves, so being interested in others is what might make you more interesting to them.  When starting a conversation, don’t just ask a list disconnected questions.  Follow-up with the other person’s answers to show that you are listening to what they are saying.

          Put some Canadian pride on your home screen with these Canada Day themes!   
"Canada… big, wide, and very, very cold!" "WHAT?!" That's the beginning of the Canada movie at Epcot, and that's the first thing that pops into my head whenever I think of our northern neighbors. Safe to say, I am not an expert on the country. Until I started to work for Android Central, my Canadian experiences consisted of Epcot and Hetalia. That said, there's a lot to be envious of looking at Canada. You've got good healthcare, you've got Justin Trudeau, you've got all that maple syrup, and the biggest chance of a riot in Canada seems to be a hockey match. If it weren't for those winters and how much more expensive technological gadgetry seems to be up there, I'd be all over it! No matter where you call your Canadian home, you can display some home screen pride this Canada Day with this pair of themes.

          AEE 140: Three Pro Tips on How to Start Your Presentation in English with Carl Kwan   

Taking IELTS?

Get our free IELTS video training course

Do you have to make presentations in English sometimes?

Do you know how to start your presentation in English?

Today you’ll find out 3 awesome tips from our guest Carl Kwan!

Carl has been on our show a few times this year!

He is a presentation expert and he told us why it’s important to know your audience when you present and how to end your English presentation.

Today he’s here to show you how to get your presentation started!

 

3 Ways to Start your Presentation in English:

  • Start with a surprising fact: After you state the interesting or surprising fact, tell people what they should do with it. This gets their attention and this makes it easy for you to show them what they are going to learn. This is a more effective way to start than saying your name or “thanks for coming to my presentation.”
  • Use a story: Talk about what you were doing at a specific time when you thought about your presentation topic. For example, “Recently I was having a conversation with a friend when she told me about a really interesting method she is using to learn English.” With this strategy you should use a time reference. Talk about a situation and the action that was going on at the time. Use the word “when.” Using “when” is a good way to introduce the topic that you are about to talk about. This will get your audience interested.
  • Use a question to talk about a problem and your solution: Start by asking “have you ever…?” Then say, “well, here’s…” Here is an example from Carl: “Have you ever wondered how you can use CNN to learn English? Well here’s a 5-step process for using CNN to learn English.” To do this you have to know your audience and your question has to speak to them.

 

Carl Kwan is a presentations, video and marketing consultant with an MBA who also has over 10 years experience as an ESL teacher.

Carl was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to Vancouver, Canada at age 3. Like many immigrants, his parents always struggled with English.

This eventually led him to pursue teaching English to help people like his mom and dad.

Since 2009 he has produced presentations videos. Currently, his YouTube Channel has more than 120 videos on presentations.

 

Carl lives in Seoul, South Korea with his wife and son. He offers presentations workshops and consulting, he produces live and animated videos for business owners and works as a professional voice actor and radio personality.

He believes that everyone deserves a chance at success. To learn more about Carl, please visit his website at www.carlkwan.com, check out his videos on YouTube or connect with him on LinkedIn.

          Marshall Kent Leads Nine Players Set for Grand Casino Hotel & Resort PBA Oklahoma Open Finals   

Three-time PBA Tour titlist Marshall Kent of Yakima, Wash., averaged 227 over four rounds on different lane conditions to lead a field of nine players who advanced to this weekend’s stepladder finals of the Grand Casino Hotel & Resort PBA Oklahoma Open.

ESPN’s live coverage begins Saturday at noon CDT (1 p.m. ET) from the Grand Hotel Event Center when qualifiers five through nine will compete on two specially-installed lanes with the winner advancing to the no. 5 qualifying position who will join the tournament’s top four qualifiers for Sunday’s stepladder finals telecast which also gets underway at noon local time.

Kent compiled a 7,278 32-game pinfall total bowled on PBA’s 32-foot Wolf, 40-foot Bear, 52-foot Badger and 44-foot Oklahoma Open lane condition patterns over the four days of qualifying at the FireLake Bowling Center. He bowled games of 237, 274, 266, 257, 236, 220, 235 and 207 in Friday’s final round on the Oklahoma condition.

IMG_2060Despite starting the tournament with games of 160 and 170 in the first round on the Wolf condition Tuesday, Kent relied on his ability to adjust to quickly rebound.

“I was a little frustrated but I reminded myself it’s a marathon, not a sprint,” he said. “In a tournament like this you have to look at the big picture. I was a little frustrated but I knew I had 30 games to go.

“I think overall my versatility showed in this tournament,” the 24-year-old Kent continued. “I didn’t have a good start but it didn’t worry me.”

As top qualifier, Kent earned the right to select the lane condition pattern for both stepladder telecasts this weekend and has selected the Bear pattern. He does have the option to change the pattern selection after Saturday’s telecast for Sunday’s competition.

“I feel that the Bear pattern is the best pattern for rewarding the player who makes the best shot,” Kent said. “My gut right now is to stick with it for both days.”

Climbing from 28th after the first round and 12th after Thursday’s third round, three-time PBA Player of the Year Jason Belmonte of Australia averaged 256 in the final round to rocket to the no. 2 qualifying position and finish with a 7,208 pinfall. The two-hander will be trying for this third win of the season after winning the USBC Masters and Barbasol PBA Players Championship.

Joining Kent and Belmonte in Sunday’s finals will be no. 3 qualifier three-time Tour winner Rhino Page of Orlando who finished with a 7,191 pinfall and no. 4 qualifier 18-time Tour champion Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, who finished with 7,181.

IMG_2057“I knew the pattern today would be easier than what we had been bowling on,” said Belmonte, who owns 14 career PBA Tour titles. “You still have to execute because pin carry becomes something you have to deal with. I went into this round taking it shot by shot and wasn’t going to be afraid of what was going to happen down lane.”

Players who qualified fifth through ninth bowling in Saturday’s stepladder round to determine the no. 5 qualifier for Sunday’s stepladder finals telecast will be two-time tour winner Thomas Larsen of Denmark, reigning PBA Player of the Year EJ Tackett of Huntington, Ind., Jesper Svensson of Sweden, Tom Smallwood of Saginaw, Mich., and Tom Daugherty of Riverview, Fla.

Trey Ford III, the 16-year-old PBA member from Bartlesville, Okla., fell short of making the top nine by 94 pins finishing 11th with a 6,941 pinfall (216.9 average) to record his highest PBA Tour finish.

          Denmark’s Larsen Meeting Challenge of Multiple Lane Conditions To Retain Grand Casino Hotel & Resort PBA Oklahoma Open Lead   

In a tournament that puts a premium on a player’s ability to adjust to vastly different lane conditions, third-round leader Thomas Larsen of Denmark feels he’s as prepared as he can be to meet the challenges of competing in the Grand Casino Hotel & Resort PBA Oklahoma Open.

After three rounds bowled on three different PBA lane condition patterns, the two-time PBA Tour and four-time European Bowling Tour winner, leads a field of 33 players who advanced to Friday’s final round at the FireLake Bowling Center with a 5,398 24-game pinfall (224.9 average).

The players advancing to the fourth round will be put to the test on the 44-foot Oklahoma Open lane condition and will battle to be among the top nine who will advance to the live ESPN stepladder finals Saturday and Sunday at noon CDT (1 p.m. ET) at the Grand Casino Hotel Event Center in Shawnee.

Larsen bowled eight-game pinfall totals of 1,826 on the 32-foot Wolf pattern lane condition in the first round, 1,793 on the 40-foot Bear pattern in the second round and 1,779 on the 52-foot Badger pattern in Thursday’s third round with games of 223, 190, 246, 200, 244, 219, 219 and 238.

“It was another successful day today,” said the 27-year-old Larsen who led after the second round. “You never know what will happen when you’re bowling on a completely new lane condition but I was ready for the challenge.

“I used a lot of balls again today in the round,” he continued. “Just like in yesterday’s round I used several balls and had to make changes in my ball speed and hand position at the release – the changes were just different today.”

Larsen is trying for his first PBA Tour title on U.S. soil. His Tour titles came in the 2013 Abu Dhabi Open and 2014 Kuwait International Open.

Larsen holds a 45-pin lead over 18-time PBA Tour titlist Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, in second with a 5,353 pinfall. Three-time PBA Tour winner Marshall Kent of Yakima, Wash., is third with 5,346.

Trey Ford III, the 16-year-old PBA member from Bartlesville, Okla., advanced to the fourth round with a 10th-place 5,199 pinfall total. He bowled games of 234, 218, 235, 163, 213, 183, 236 and 206 in the third round.

“I’m a little surprised how well I’m doing because when I practiced on these conditions at home I didn’t do that well,” said the high school sophomore who uses the unique two-handed delivery. “Generally, I feel comfortable making the adjustments I need to make – I’m just trying to learn as much as I can.

“If I have a bad game or get a split, I just have to remember that there are more opportunities and more bowling to go.”

Ford has been a PBA member since age 13 and has three top-10 finishes in PBA regional competition with a best of sixth.

Saturday’s stepladder round will feature players who qualified fifth through ninth with the winner advancing to the no. 5 qualifying position to join the tournament’s top four qualifiers for Sunday’s stepladder final.

Friday’s final qualifying round will be streamed live on PBA’s online bowling channel Xtra Frame beginning at 9:30 EDT (8:30 CT). For subscription and schedule information click on www.xtraframe.tv.

          PBA Spare Shots: PBA’s Influence on International Bowling Community Continues to Grow   

Bowlers from around the world have always considered the PBA as the gold standard. If you wanted to find out how good you are, you had to bowl against – and beat – the world’s best. For decades, that was a difficult decision to make because the Fédération Internationale des Quilleurs, the international governing body in the eyes of the International Olympic Committee, banned professionals from its ranks.

(Feature photo, from left: Members of the victorious international team in the inaugural USA Vs. The World team match held during PBA World Series of Bowling II in Las Vegas in 2010 were Finland’s Osku Palermaa, Kimmo Lehtonen and Mika Koivuniemi, Canada’s Dan MacLelland, Australia’s Jason Belmonte and Venezuela’s Amleto Monacelli)

That policy changed in 2008, when the World Tenpin Bowling Association (WTBA) – now World Bowling – became the official governing body of tenpin bowling and opened its doors to professionals in the hopes of advancing bowling’s hope to gain Olympic acceptance, meaning that international players would no longer jeopardize eligibility to represent their national teams if the joined the PBA.

The introduction of the multi-event PBA World Series of Bowling concept a year later brought a veritable flood of international players into PBA competition. While notable players like PBA Tour champions Amleto Monacelli of Venezuela (1982), Sweden’s Mats Karlsson (1983) and Finland’s Mika Koivuniemi (1999), among a handful of others, had ventured into the PBA arena prior to 2008, the inaugural WSOB included an unprecedented 28 players from 14 different countries.

flagsThe WSOB has continued to welcome players from around the world. Since 2009, 38 different countries have been represented in the World Series, including a record 23 countries and 55 international players last year in Reno. The same sort of trend has had an impact of the recently-resurrected Professional Women’s Bowling Association Tour, which has featured a strong influx of international players.

In 2017, the PBA has seen international competition grow in events not previously known for global appeal, such as the Xtra Frame PBA Tour program and, this week, the Grand Casino Hotel & Resort Oklahoma Open, which includes 16 nations and 26 international players in its field of 91.

It’s an exciting trend for bowling, especially as the sport continues to seek the attention of the IOC and bowling manufacturers continue to expand their global markets. It’s good for bowling fans around the world, who can cheer for their home-country favorites thanks to the advent of Xtra Frame, pba.com and other social media outlets with world-wide accessibility. And it’s good for competition, because the level of talent in PBA competition has never been stronger, which only adds to the prestige of winning a PBA Tour title.

XTRA FRAME SCHEDULE INCLUDES OKLAHOMA PRELIMS, PWBA ACTION

This week’s Xtra Frame’s live streaming schedule will feature qualifying round coverage of the PBA Grand Casino Hotel & Resort Oklahoma Open from FireLake Bowling Center in Shawnee, Okla., through Friday, leading up to two days of live ESPN coverage of the Oklahoma Open’s nine-player stepladder finals Saturday and Sunday, July 1-2, at 1 p.m. EDT both days.

PBA REGIONAL UPDATE: WARREN, TANG WIN PBA50/PBA DOUBLES TITLE IN RENO

PBA50 competitor Chris Warren of Grants Pass, Ore., teamed up with Darren Tang of San Francisco to win the PBA50/PBA Sands Regency West/Northwest Doubles Open, presented by MOTIV, at High Sierra Lanes Sunday over PBA50 rookie Michael Haugen Jr. of Phoenix and Tang’s younger brother, amateur Michael Tang, 449-422.

Warren and Darren Tang took an early lead and a costly open late in the game by Michael Tang, combined with Haugen’s inability to carry pocket hits, resulted in Warren claiming his fourth PBA50 Regional title while Darren Tang picked up his second title since becoming a member a year ago.

In the single elimination match play leading up to the title match, the Warren/Tang team swept Utah amateurs Clay Rees from Riverton and Craig Harrington of Harriman, 3-0. Warren/Tang then defeated the San Jose, Calif., team of Gregory Thompson Jr. and Marty Deh in the semifinal match, 490-416, while the Haugen/Tang team survived a semifinal round shootout against PJ Haggerty from Roseville, Calif., and Las Vegan Ron Mohr, 546-545.

Anderson downed Frank Snodgrass of Center Line, Mich., 228-161, in the semifinal round while Stevens topped Charlie Brown of Grandville, Mich., 208-159, to set up the championship match.

Keith Lesko of Chicago defeated Mark Sullivan of Indianapolis, 222-202, to win the PBA50 Ultimate Inserts Midwest Open presented by Hammer at Lakeside Lanes in Davis, Ill., Sunday. 

Lesko, who led qualifying, took each of the preliminary matches to the maximum number of games.  He defeated Jeff Johnson of Freeport, Ill. 3-2, in the best-of-five-game Round of 8, and then defeated R.J. Alman of Murrysville, Pa., 2-1, in the best-of-three semifinal round. Sullivan bested his travelling partner Danny Clark of New Palestine, Ind. 3-2, before beating Dave Traber of Hebron, Ill., 2-1, in his semifinal match.

Automated processes in industries and construction sites require fewer workers and result in a decreased use of personal protective equipment.

          Oh Canada! RCMP offer safety tips for Ca­nada’s milestone bir­thday   
It’s time to dig out your red and whi­te! The Canada Day weekend is almost here and the RCMP want to ensure you’re pla­nning for a safe and fun long weekend.   “Holiday weekends te­nd to bring with them increased traffic and celebrations,” says Cpl. Dal Hutchin­son, Nova Scotia. “As expected the RCMP often sees …

.Nova Scotia RCMP Fed­eral Serious & Organ­ized Crime Section, in partnership with Canada Border Servic­es Agency, arrested two individuals for importing heroin into Halifax following an investigation that began in Montreal.

          Canadian Free Trade Agreement Starts July 1   

Consumers and businesses in Nova Scotia will benefit from improved trade within Canada with the implementation of the Canadian Free Trade Agreement(CFTA) on July 1.

“Over half of Nova Scotia’s trade in goods and services occurs within Canada,” said Premier Stephen McNeil. “This modern set of rules to guide domestic trade gives Nova Scotia companies more opportunity to do business across provincial and territorial boundaries, and a clear process to address barriers.

“The CFTA builds on work we are doing with our Atlantic partners to reduce regulatory and administrative barriers to trade. Canada’s 150 celebration is a fitting opportunity to bring into force this modern, Canada-wide agreement as we continue efforts to create jobs for young Nova Scotians and more opportunity for the middle class.”

Since December 2014, federal, provincial and territorial governments have worked to modernize Canada’s internal trade. The CFTA resulted from these negotiations.

“The CFTA will make it easier and less costly for Nova Scotia businesses to sell their goods and services across Canada,” said Geoff MacLellan, Minister of Trade. “It increases choice for consumers, expands access to government contracts in other provinces, and creates more jobs for Canadians.”

CFTA includes rules that open trade in goods and services, processes that cut red tape by reducing differences in regulations and standards, and provisions that increase access to billions of dollars in government procurement opportunities for Canadian businesses.

Nationally, internal trade is worth $400 billion and represents roughly 20 per cent of Canada’s gross domestic product (GDP).

The agreement also establishes a new framework to review interprovincial trade over the next year in areas like alcohol, fisheries, the territorial food sector and financial services.
The CFTA will replace the existing Agreement on Internal Trade which has been in place since 1995.

          Bluenose II Kicks Off Canada Day in Pictou   

Nova Scotians can celebrate Canada Day this weekend with the province’s sailing ambassador, Bluenose II, in Pictou.

As part of Rendez-Vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta, Bluenose II will visit Pictou today, June 30. It will remain in Pictou through July 3.

The Bluenose will be open to the public in Pictou for deck visits as well as for harbor cruises on July 3 (weather pending). Information on the Bluenose’s schedule is available at https://www.facebook.com/sailbluenoseii/ and https://twitter.com/SailBluenoseII .

“Having the RDV 2017 Tall Ships Regatta in Pictou for the Canada Day weekend, and especially Canada 150, is a great honour. The fact that we are also able to host Bluenose II at our port is even more special,” said Darlene MacDonald, director for sector development at Tourism Nova Scotia. “As Pictou is home to Nova Scotia’s other tall ship, the Ship Hector, it is indeed a great pleasure to welcome all these vessels to our home port.

“Pictou has a rich seafaring tradition and this weekend will see that tradition come alive once more.”

For the full Pictou Canada Day weekend schedule, visit http://rdv2017ns.com/the-event-schedule/?port=pictou .

Canada Day will also mark the launch of the Bluenose II mobile exhibit. The exhibit, which contains artifacts and information panels, is an information centre for the ship. It will join the Bluenose II at each post she visits this summer.

Rendez-Vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta is a 7,000-nautical mile transatlantic race, led by Sail Training International. The Tall Ships will visit Nova Scotia ports until August 16. A full schedule is available at http://www.rdv2017.com/en/participating-cities/ . The province and the Government of Canada/Heritage Canada provided financial support to make RDV 2017 happen.

Other Canada Day celebrations supported through the Government of Nova Scotia’s 150 Forward Fund include the Chester Yacht Club Parade of Sail, the Canada 150 Literary Festival in Margaree Forks and the Stan Rogers Folk Festival. As part of the 150th anniversary of Confederation, funding was provided to about 170 community organizations to plan events that honour significant Nova Scotians or achievements, commemorate significant historical events, or celebrate the province’s cultural identity and ethnic diversity.

“The Government of Nova Scotia was pleased to provide over $6 million for Canada 150 projects throughout the province,” said Communities, Culture and Heritage Minister Leo Glavine. “These events unite us as Nova Scotians and as Canadians. They help us celebrate our province’s rich cultural tapestry, our ethnic diversity, and our unique Nova Scotian identity.

“It’s a great weekend for all Nova Scotians to be out in our communities enjoying a multitude of festivals and special events. On behalf of the Government of Nova Scotia, I wish every Nova Scotian a happy Canada Day!”

          Les sauveteurs entrent en service sur les plages de la province   

NOTE : à la fin du communiqué, vous trouverez une liste des plages où des sauveteurs ont été engagés à contrat par le ministère des Communautés, de la Culture et du Patrimoine

Les Néo-Écossais pourront profiter des plages provinciales surveillées cet été sous l’œil attentif des sauveteurs qui seront sur place de 10 h à 18 h tous les jours à compter de samedi 1er juillet.

« Nous espérons connaître une autre saison de plaisir estival sans problème sur les plages de la province, a déclaré le ministre des Communautés, de la Culture et du Patrimoine, Leo Glavine. Nous demandons aux personnes qui fréquentent les plages de faire preuve de la plus grande prudence quand elles vont dans l’eau ou qu’elles pratiquent des sports aquatiques, et d’obéir aux consignes des sauveteurs. »

Les sauveteurs de la Nouvelle-Écosse sont dûment accrédités et, avant le début de la saison, ils suivent un entraînement pour vérifier leurs compétences techniques et physiques pour effectuer des sauvetages dans l'eau et promouvoir la sécurité aquatique.

« Après une semaine d’entraînement au lac Aylesford, j’ai bien hâte de nous voir tous sur les plages pour l’ouverture du service le jour de la fête du Canada, a dit Hannah McLean, sauveteuse principale et chef de plage au parc provincial de la plage Melmerby. Nous espérons que beaucoup de gens viendront profiter de nos magnifiques plages! »

Depuis 1973, le service de sauvetage a maintenu une fiche parfaite car il n'y a eu aucune noyade pendant les heures de surveillance sur les plages. Le service tient à conserver cette fiche parfaite.

« Nous espérons connaître une autre saison sans tragédie, mais nous préparons nos employés à faire face à toute éventualité, assure Paul D’Eon, directeur du Nova Scotia Lifeguard Service. Nous conseillons vivement à tous les gens de nager entre les drapeaux rouges et jaunes qui marquent la partie surveillée de la plage et du plan d’eau. »

Le Nova Scotia Lifeguard Service et la Société de sauvetage, Division de la Nouvelle-Écosse, ont été embauchés à contrat par le ministère des Communautés, de la Culture et du Patrimoine pour assurer la surveillance de certaines plages provinciales. Ils assurent aussi la surveillance de quelques plages fédérales et municipales. Consultez l’adresse www.nsls.ns.ca pour la liste complète.


POUR DIFFUSION :

     Les amateurs de plage pourront profiter des plages

provinciales surveillées et pourront aller s'amuser et se

rafraîchir dans l'eau sous l'œil attentif des sauveteurs tous

les jours de 10 h à 18 h à compter de samedi (1er juillet).

          Psychiatrists’ Torture of Patients Lawsuit to Proceed   
Former residents of an Ontario, Canada, psychiatric facility have been given the green light to proceed with a class action civil suit against two psychiatrists who, for years, carried out torturous treatment programs. Given the nature of the torturous “treatment” residents were subjected to, one can only wonder why the named psychiatrists are not being held criminally responsible for the acknowledged abuses. Justice Perell explained that “the three programs ... implemented by the doctors.... were torture and a degradation of human dignity.”

          Circulation Management Association of Canada Merges with Magazines Canada   

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - June 29, 2017) - The Circulation Management Association of Canada (CMC) has merged with Magazines Canada. The merger was unanimously recommended by the CMC Board and ratified by its members during the CMC's annual general meeting yesterday in Toronto. The CMC, Canada's national association for circulation professionals, will now take steps to dissolve the association and merge with Magazines Canada, the national trade association for all magazine media.

The CMC was formed in 1981 to provide training and professional development in circulation management. Magazines Canada, founded in 1973, is the national association representing the majority of Canadian-owned, Canadian-content consumer, cultural, specialty, professional and business magazines. Following a similar merger announced earlier this year, Magazines Canada now continues the tradition of advocating and serving the Canadian magazine industry that goes back nearly 100 years, to the original founding of the Canadian Business Press in 1920.

Under this agreement, the longstanding partnership between the two organizations will be made permanent. Current CMC members will receive access to Magazines Canada's professional development events and services, and can elect to join a renewed and empowered Circulation Marketing Advisory Committee which will advise the Board and staff on professional development (including the MagNet conference), awards programs, and research. Additionally, the CMC legacy will continue under Magazines Canada in the form of a maintained brand identity and web archive.

"The CMC and Magazines Canada have worked together for many years in supporting the magazine marketing industry. This merger secures our ability to support the circulation industry at a national level for the years to come. Closer cooperation and one collective voice means a stronger, brighter future for magazine marketing professionals, and I look forward to working together," said Amanda Beattie, President of the Circulation Management Association of Canada and Audience Marketing Manager for AZURE Magazine.

"This is a great move for the industry: it builds off Magazines Canada's strong national marketing campaigns and the distribution service that we offer our members. Even more importantly, a merger with the CMC brings the voices and perspectives of important players along the supply-chain to the table -- from suppliers and distribution all the way to retail -- it makes a lot of sense for us to be working together," said Scott Jamieson, Chair of Magazines Canada's board of directors and Director of Engagement for Annex Business Media.

About Magazines Canada
Magazines Canada is the national association representing the majority of Canadian-owned, Canadian-content consumer, cultural, specialty, professional and business magazines. French and English member titles cover a wide range of interests across multiple platforms including arts and culture, business and professional, lifestyle and food, news and politics, sports and leisure, women and youth. The association focuses on government affairs, professional development, coordinating national awards programs and marketing campaigns, and delivering services that meet the needs of the magazine industry.

Sobre a prova de proficiência, o próprio TOELF (imagino que o IELTS deve funcionar do mesmo jeito) manda os seus resultados para a escola. Acho que vc pode escolher até 3 instituições diferentes para mandar. Na hora da inscrição, eles perguntam para quais escolas vc quer mandar, só os seus dados pessoais são suficientes. Não tenho certeza, mas as universidades só aceitam a nota da prova de for enviada pela própria instituição

          Oil rises for seventh session, U.S. stocks rebound   

By Dion Rabouin and Herbert Lash

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Oil rose for a seventh straight session on Friday on a declining U.S. rig count and stronger demand data from China, while U.S. equities rebounded and were set to end a volatile week on an up-beat, helped by a double-digit jump in Nike shares.

The dollar recovered slightly but hawkish signals this week from the European Central Bank, Bank of England and Bank of Canada kept the greenback on track for its biggest quarterly decline against a basket of currencies in nearly seven years.

Among other sharp contrasts, the euro rose 7 percent in its best quarter since 2010, while the benchmark S&P 500 stock index was set to post its best first half of the year since 2013 and gold notched its first monthly loss this year.

U.S. drillers cut their rig count for the first time since January, energy services company Baker Hughes [RIG/U] said, while Chinese factories boosted output at their fastest pace in three months.

The strong data from China "certainly gives you hope that demand is growing globally," said Rob Haworth, senior investment strategist at U.S. Bank Wealth Management.

U.S. crude futures settled up $1.11 at $46.04 a barrel, the first close above $46 in two weeks. Benchmark Brent crude futures rose 50 cents to settle at $47.92 a barrel.

Crude had slumped to a 10-month low last week as rising output revived concerns about global oil glut.

A weaker greenback has made dollar-denominated crude less expensive for purchasers using other currencies.

Ramped-up expectations for tighter monetary policy from major central banks and scepticism the Federal Reserve would be able to raise interest rates again this year has made the dollar less attractive.

The dollar index was last up 0.05 percent at 95.674, while the euro was down 0.17 percent against the dollar at $1.1420.

The euro touched its strongest in nearly 14 months on Thursday, at $1.1445, while the dollar index touched a roughly nine-month low of 95.470 early Friday.

Nike shares rose 10.5 percent after the world's largest footwear maker reported a quarterly profit that topped estimates and said it would launch a pilot online sales programme with Amazon.com .

Nike shares were the biggest boost to both the Dow industrials and the S&P 500.

The S&P technology index <.SPLRCT> climbed 0.34 percent but was still on track to post its first monthly loss of the year.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average <.DJI> rose 99.25 points, or 0.47 percent, to 21,386.28. The S&P 500 <.SPX> gained 9.95 points, or 0.41 percent, to 2,429.65 and the Nasdaq Composite <.IXIC> added 14.92 points, or 0.24 percent, to 6,159.27.

In Europe, shares closed lower and ended June with their biggest monthly loss in a year as worries over tighter monetary conditions soured the mood.

The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index <.FTEU3> of leading shares lost 0.44 percent while MSCI's gauge of stocks across the globe <.MIWD00000PUS> rose 0.01 percent, lifted by Wall Street.

U.S. Treasury yields rose after inflation data was not seen as weak enough to delay the Fed’s expected path on rate hikes.

Benchmark 10-year notes fell 10/32 in price to yield 2.3037 percent, a six-week high.

          PRECIOUS-Gold edges down as hawkish central banks weigh   

* Gold set for first monthly fall in 2017; up 8 pct in H1 * Palladium prices surged 25 pct this year, best year since2010 (Recasts, updates prices, adds quote) By Vijaykumar Vedala BENGALURU, June 30 (Reuters) - Gold inched lower on Fridayas hawkish comments from major central banks suggested a shifttoward tighter monetary policies, while the dollar nursed itslosses. Comments from top central bankers including European CentralBank head Mario Draghi, Bank of England Governor Mark Carney,and top policymakers at the Bank of Canada earlier this weekhave indicated that quantitative easing is being put back in itsbox and interest rates are going to go up. Gold is highly sensitive to rising interest rates, whichincrease the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding bullion.However, losses in the dollar, in which it is priced, have beenoffsetting the impact of higher yields to keep gold range-bound. Spot gold fell 0.2 percent to $1,242.56 per ounce, asof 0736 GMT. U.S. gold futures for August delivery weredown 0.3 percent at $1,242.60 per ounce. Gold slid nearly 2 percent in June in its first monthlydecline this year, but gained about 8 percent so far in 2017. Gold has been range-bound between $1,243-$1,248, and appearsto be lacking a catalyst for price action in any direction, MKSPAMP analyst Tim Brown said in a note. "Central banks seem to be moving toward a more hawkish viewand the resulting rise in the bond yield curve is puttingdownward pressure on gold prices." On Thursday, Germany's 10-year government bond yield rose toa seven-week high, and benchmark U.S. Treasury yields touched six-week highs on the likelihood that central banks in Europewill become less accommodative. "Central banks worldwide are going to have some kind of lessstimulative economic policies. About the pace of their exitstrategies, the only question is regarding the matter of degreeand not the direction itself," said Mark To, head of research atHong Kong's Wing Fung Financial Group. In the wider markets, the dollar index , whichmeasures the greenback against a basket of currencies, was up0.1 percent after hitting a nine-month low at 95.470 on Friday.Asian shares were pulled down by weaker European and U.S.markets. Among other precious metals, silver is up 4 percent for theyear despite having shed over 9 percent in the second quarter.Spot silver slipped 0.2 percent to $16.55 per ounce onFriday. Platinum dipped 0.2 percent to $917.90, and slippednearly 3 percent this quarter, but is up about 2 percent for theyear. Palladium , which has been the best performingprecious metal this year, dipped 0.4 percent to $844 per ounce.The metal surged nearly 25 percent this year, and is poised tohave its best year since 2010.

          Dollar despairs on hawkish central banks, Asia stocks join global slump   

By Nichola Saminather

SINGAPORE (Reuters) - The dollar extended its losses on Friday as major central banks signalled that the era of cheap money was coming to an end in a boon to sterling, the euro and the Canadian dollar, while Asian shares were hit by dismal performances of European and U.S. markets.

European markets were set to open a little lower, with financial spreadbetter LCG expecting Britain's FTSE 100, Germany's DAX and France's CAC 40 to all start the day down 0.1 percent. All three lost between 0.5 percent and 1.9 percent on Thursday.

But global stock market indexes are set for more gains by the end of this year, driven by an economic revival in Europe and bright prospects for much of Asia, a Reuters poll of around 300 financial professionals showed.

The dollar index fell 0.1 percent to 95.549, poised for a 1.8 percent slide this week, having fallen in all sessions but one. It is down 1.4 percent for the month, and 4.8 percent for the quarter.

The Korean won weakened against the dollar after the country reported industrial production rose by 0.2 percent in May from a month earlier, missing expectations for growth of 1.5 percent. That followed a 2.2 percent decline in April

The dollar was up 0.1 percent at 1,142.5 won.

But the greenback remained lower against other major currencies. Adding to the dollar's weakness against the yen was data showing Japanese core consumer prices rose 0.4 percent in May from a year earlier in its fifth straight month of gains, although inflation remains well below the central bank's 2 percent target.

The dollar fell 0.25 percent to 111.95 yen, after losing 0.2 percent on Thursday. It was heading for a 1.2 percent gain for the month, but is down 4.2 percent this year.

Bank of England Governor Mark Carney surprised many on Wednesday by conceding a rate hike was likely to be needed as the economy came closer to running at full capacity.

Sterling was 0.1 percent higher on Friday at $1.3017, adding to Thursday's 0.6 percent gain.

Two top policymakers at the Bank of Canada also suggested they might tighten monetary policy there as early as July.

The dollar slipped 0.15 percent to C$1.2984, extending Thursday's 0.26 percent loss.

Despite comments by sources that European Central Bank President Mario Draghi had intended to signal tolerance for a period of weaker inflation, not an imminent policy tightening, the euro on Friday revisited the 13-month high of $1.1445 hit on Thursday.

The euro remained close to that level and was at $1.1439 on Friday, retaining most of Thursday's 0.6 percent gain.

"Obviously there's a shift afoot. It really seems that there's some coordinated effort going on out here among the G10 central banks," said Stephen Innes, head of trading in Asia-Pacific for OANDA in Singapore, referring to the series of hawkish-sounding comments on monetary policy.

In stocks, the MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan fell 0.7 percent, after hitting a two-year high on Thursday. It is up 5.3 percent for the quarter and has risen 18.3 percent this year.

The negative sentiment infected Chinese shares despite surveys showing activity in the country's manufacturing and services sector accelerated in June from the previous month. Manufacturers appeared to enjoy strong external demand, as new orders and production rose at a solid pace.

The CSI 300 index fell 0.3 percent, while the Shanghai Composite slipped 0.1 percent.

Hong Kong's Hang Seng slid 0.9 percent.

Japan's Nikkei tumbled 1.2 percent, shrinking its monthly gain to 1.7 percent. It is up 4.5 percent this year.

Overnight, the tech-heavy Nasdaq led declines on Wall Street with a 1.4 percent loss. The Nasdaq is poised to post a 0.9 percent loss for the month, but is still up 14 percent this year.

The drop in tech stocks overnight was due to a rotation into bank shares, which have lagged this year, after the biggest U.S. banks revealed buyback and dividend plans that beat analysts' expectations after the Fed approved their capital proposals in its annual stress test program.

The S&P financials index rose as much as 2 percent overnight, while the S&P technology index fell as much as 2.7 percent.

In commodities, oil prices continued their recovery this week on a decline in weekly U.S. crude production.

U.S. crude added 0.7 percent to $45.15 a barrel in its seventh straight session of gains, bringing its weekly increase to 5.05 percent, and narrowing its quarterly loss to 10.75 percent.

Global benchmark Brent gained 0.6 percent to $47.67 a barrel, poised to post a 9.8 percent for the quarter.

The dollar's weakness this year has been a boon for gold, which is up 8.25 percent in the same period. It was up 0.1 percent at $1,246.46 an ounce on Friday.

          EM ASIA FX-Chinese yuan on track for best quarter since 2008; won touches 11-week low   

(Adds text, updates prices) By Christina Martin June 30 (Reuters) - China's yuan extended gainsfor a fourth straight session on Friday and was headed for itsbest quarter since June 2008, helped by a weaker dollar andbetter-than-expected manufacturing data. The People's Bank of China set the yuan midpointat 6.7744 per dollar prior to market opening, its strongestlevel since November 7, 2016. The strength in the official guidance reflected weakness inthe dollar, which sank to a near nine-month low against a basketof currencies in the overseas market. The dollar was bogged down by growing expectations of morehawkish monetary policies in Europe and Canada and doubts aboutanother U.S. interest rate increase this year. The yuan was up about 1 percent for the week, set for itsbest week since July 2005, and gained 1.7 percent against thedollar for the quarter. China's manufacturing sector expanded at its quickest pacein three months in June, buoyed by strong production and neworders, reassuring news for authorities trying to strike abalance between de-leveraging and keeping the economy on an evenkeel. The official manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI)was at 51.7 in June, the eleventh straight month of expansion,and up from 51.2 in May, a monthly survey by the National Bureauof Statistics showed on Friday. Separately, official data showed that China recorded asurplus in its capital and financial account in the firstquarter, indicating net capital inflows as policymakerstightened supervision of outflows. In other Asian currencies, the Malaysian ringgitgained 0.1 percent and the Philippine peso snappedthree straight days of losses. "The Asian net portfolio flow environment remains generallysupportive except for the Indian rupee, where inflow momentumcontinues to moderate," OCBC said in a note. The Indian rupee was set for its fourth straightday of declines, losing as much as 0.2 percent to hit a two-weeklow. KOREAN WON South Korea's won traded down as much as 0.5percent on Friday, its lowest level in over 11 weeks, asinvestors backed away from emerging markets in the wake of abroad decline in global stock markets. South Korean bond sales by Franklin Templeton raisedconcerns over potential capital outflows, putting furtherpressure on the won. U.S. President Donald Trump will press South KoreanPresident Moon Jae-in to solve trade differences over cars andsteel in meetings in Washington focusing on the nuclear threatfrom North Korea. South Korean shares edged down after a big rebound theprevious day, with the Korea Composite Stock Price Index (KOSPI) down 0.5 percent at 2,384.57 points. The won has fallen about 2.1 percent this quarter. SINGAPORE DOLLAR The Singapore dollar rose for a fourth consecutiveday on Friday, up as much as 0.2 percent, touching it highest inmore two weeks. Singapore's total bank lending in May rose 0.32 percent fromApril as lending to general commerce increased, central bankdata showed on Friday. Bank lending in May rose 6.8 percent from a year earlier. The Singapore dollar gained 1.4 percent in the quarter andis headed for its second straight quarter of gains.

          U.S. dollar falls, bond yields up as central bank views shift   

By Rodrigo Campos

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The euro and sterling rose on Thursday and U.S. bond yields spiked as hawkish comments from central banks signalled an end to ultra-loose monetary policy on both sides of the Atlantic, while technology shares dragged Wall Street stocks lower.

The dollar index <.DXY> touched its lowest since October, before Donald Trump was elected U.S. president, as investors shifted to the view that Federal Reserve might not be the only game in town when it comes to higher interest rates.

With the Fed approving dividends and buybacks in major banks as part of another round of stress tests, U.S. financial stocks rose but not enough to offset declines in technology and interest rate-sensitive sectors.

"Part of the reason why tech is down today is the steam in the recent rotation out of some of big tech winners and into banks," said Michael Scanlon, portfolio manager at Manulife Asset Management in Boston.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average <.DJI> fell 167.58 points, or 0.78 percent, to 21,287.03, the S&P 500 <.SPX> lost 20.99 points, or 0.86 percent, to 2,419.7 and the Nasdaq Composite <.IXIC> dropped 90.06 points, or 1.44 percent, to 6,144.35.

European shares logged their biggest one-day loss in nine months as a rising hawkish chorus from central banks weighed on defensive, dividend-paying sectors.

The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index <.FTEU3> lost 1.36 percent and MSCI's gauge of stocks across the globe <.MIWD00000PUS> shed 0.54 percent.

Emerging market stocks rose 0.19 percent. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan <.MIAPJ0000PUS> closed 0.71 percent higher, while Japan's Nikkei <.N225> rose 0.45 percent.

As euro zone bond yields rallied, the euro surged to as high as $1.1445 , its strongest since May 2016. The dollar index <.DXY> fell 0.46 percent, with the euro up 0.55 percent to $1.1439.

Bank of England Governor Mark Carney surprised many on Wednesday by conceding a rate hike was likely to be needed as the economy came closer to running at full capacity.

That sent sterling above $1.30 on Thursday for the first time in five weeks, leaving it close to its highest levels since last September. The pound was last trading at $1.3006, up 0.63 percent on the day.

The Bank of Canada also had its say, with two top policymakers this week suggesting they might tighten monetary policy there as early as July.

The Canadian dollar strengthened 0.30 percent versus the greenback at 1.30 per dollar.

"The shifting monetary policy trajectories of other central banks is making other currencies more attractive relative to the U.S. dollar," said Kathy Lien, managing director at BK Asset Management in New York.

The Japanese yen strengthened 0.16 percent versus the greenback at 112.12 per dollar.

Benchmark U.S. Treasury yields rose to five-week peaks in sympathy with higher European government debt yields, as investors evaluated the likelihood of less accommodative policy.

"What's going on in Europe is really what's driving us here," said Brian Daingerfield, a macro strategist at NatWest Markets in Stamford, Connecticut.

Treasury 10-year notes last fell 13/32 in price to yield 2.2666 percent, from 2.223 percent late on Wednesday.

U.S. oil futures were slightly higher after hitting a two-week peak, extending a rally into a sixth straight session after a decline in weekly U.S. crude production temporarily alleviated concerns about deepening oversupply. Brent ticked lower.

U.S. crude rose 0.29 percent to $44.87 per barrel and Brent was last at $47.36, up 0.11 percent on the day.

Gold fell as the central bank comments lifted bond yields.

Spot gold dropped 0.3 percent to $1,245.31 an ounce. U.S. gold futures fell 0.26 percent to $1,245.80 an ounce.

Copper rose 0.75 percent to $5,925.00 a tonne.

          Lady Gaga se prepara para comenzar su nuevo tour   

Sea en un bar o en un campo de béisbol, Lady Gaga dice que lo dará todo en cada actuación.

La cantante sale este verano en una gira por estadios alrededor del mundo, y también regresará al Dive Bar Tour con Bud Light para un espectáculo en Las Vegas el 13 de julio.

Su primera serie de conciertos en bares, que terminó el año pasado cerca del lanzamiento de su álbum Joanne, la calificó como una experiencia profunda.

"Cuando me paraba ahí olvidaba por completo dónde estábamos y entraba en modo de actuación", dijo Gaga en una entrevista telefónica. "Para mí, no importa cuán pequeño sea el recinto, uno no actúa distinto a como lo haría en un lugar grande, no sería justo con los fans".

El club del año pasado incluyó una parada en The Bitter End, el bar de Nueva York donde Gaga cantaba antes de alcanzar el estrellato. La nueva gira Dive Bar también incluirá presentaciones en Los Ángeles (26 de julio) y Nueva Orleans (30 de agosto), y será encabezada por otros artistas aún por anunciarse.

Gaga, de 31 años, comienza su gira mundial el 1 de agosto en Vancouver, Canadá. Actuará en estadios como el Citi Field en Nueva York, el AT&T Park en San Francisco, el Wrigley Field en Chicago y el Fenway Park en Boston.

Ahora que terminó de filmar la película A Star is Born con Bradley Cooper - una experiencia dijo fue "maravillosa" e "inspiradora", que "cambia la vida" - está enfocada en su enorme gira.

"Esta va a ser un poco diferente", señaló. "Me gusta cambiar las cosas. Tengo algunas ideas de cómo me gustaría interpretar algunos de los clásicos para mis fans".

Parte del cambio deriva del sonido de Joanne, que incluye rock, country y temas más lentos en comparación con sus éxitos bailables del pasado, con sonidos electrónicos.

"El álbum fue extremadamente sanador y reflexivo para mí. Escribí sobre cosas que nunca había escrito antes que son extremadamente profundas y personales, y me atrevo a decir, cosas que me acecharon, que me estaban envenenando, que eran tóxicas para mí y las saqué. Fue muy revelador en ese sentido", dijo.

"Y la portada del álbum es muy indicativa de eso", agregó. "Yo, poniéndome un sombrero que no había usado antes sin estar segura hacia dónde voy, pero sabiendo que tengo que salir de donde me encuentro".

El pasado abril el festival de Coachella, que Gaga encabezó, la cantante lanzó The Cure, una canción animada sobre sanación.

Dijo que la escribió tras su actuación en el medio tiempo del Súper Bowl, que está escribiendo nueva música y que podría lanzar otro tema no relacionado con el álbum.

"No diría que es imposible", indicó.


          Do Neonics Hurt Bees? Researchers and the Media Say Yes. The Data Do Not.    

This story is being co-published with the Genetic Literacy Project.

On Thursday, Science published a large-scale study on the relationship between bees and a pesticide, neonicotinoids. It got quite a bit of pickup in the press—Nature touted that the “Largest-Ever Study of Controversial Pesticides Finds Harm to Bees,” while the BBC explained that a “Large-Scale Study ‘Shows Neonic Pesticides Harm Bees.’ ” The Scientist said the same, with “Field Studies Confirm Neonicotinoids’ Harm to Bees,” and PBS followed suit with “Neonicotinoid Pesticides Are Slowly Killing Bees.”

These headlines seem to reflect a line included in the abstract of the study itself: “These findings point to neonicotinoids causing a reduced capacity of bee species to establish new populations in the year following exposure.”

Sure sounds like a bummer for the bees. One problem: The data in the paper (and hundreds of pages of supporting data not included but available in background form to reporters) do not support that bold conclusion. No, there is no consensus evidence that neonics are “slowly killing bees.” No, this study did not add to the evidence that neonics are driving bee health problems.

Unfortunately, and predictably, the overheated mainstream news headlines also generated a slew of even more exaggerated stories on activist and quack websites where undermining agricultural chemicals is a top priority (e.g., Greenpeace, End Times Headlines, and Friends of the Earth). The takeaway: The “beepocalypse” is accelerating. A few news outlets, such as Reuters (“Field Studies Fuel Dispute Over Whether Banned Pesticides Harm Bees”) and the Washington Post (“Controversial Pesticides May Threaten Queen Bees. Alternatives Could Be Worse.”), got the contradictory findings of the study and the headline right.

But based on the study’s data, the headline could just as easily have read: “Landmark Study Shows Neonic Pesticides Improve Bee Health”—and it would have been equally correct. So how did so many people get this so wrong?

This much-anticipated two year, $3.6 million study is particularly interesting because it was primarily funded by two major producers of neonicotinoids, Bayer Crop Science and Syngenta. They had no involvement with the analysis of the data. The three-country study was led by the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, or CEH, in the U.K.—a group known for its skepticism of pesticides in general and neonics in particular.

The raw data—more than 1,000 pages of it (only a tiny fraction is reproduced in the study)—are solid. It’s a reservoir of important information for entomologists and ecologists trying to figure out the challenges facing bees. It’s particularly important because to date, the problem with much of the research on neonicotinoids has been the wide gulf between the findings from laboratory-based studies and field studies.

Some, but not all, results from lab research have claimed neonics cause health problems in honeybees and wild bees, endangering the world food supply. This has been widely and often breathlessly echoed in the popular media—remember the execrably reported Time cover story on “A World Without Bees.” But the doses and time of exposure have varied dramatically from lab study to lab study, so many entomologists remain skeptical of these sweeping conclusions. Field studies have consistently shown a different result—in the field, neonics seem to pose little or no harm. The overwhelming threat to bee health, entomologists now agree, is a combination of factors led by the deadly Varroa destructor mite, the miticides used to control them, and bee practices. Relative to these factors, neonics are seen as relatively inconsequential.

I’ve addressed this disparity between field and lab research in a series of articles at the Genetic Literacy Project, and specifically summarized two dozen key field studies, many of which were independently funded and executed. This study was designed in part to bridge that gulf. And the devil is in the interpretation.

According to the lead researcher Richard Pywell of the CEH:

We’ve shown for the first time negative effects of neonicotinoid-coated seed dressings on honeybees and we’ve also shown similar negative effects on wild bees. … Our findings are a cause for serious concern.

I agree that there might be cause for serious concern if the studies had shown convincing evidence of negative effects. But a review of the data—by the GLP and independent scientists—concludes differently. The European study focused on three types of bees placed in fields across three countries—Germany, Hungary, and the U.K. As Jenna Gallegos noted in her particularly nuanced analysis in the Washington Post:

[T]he results were not as clear-cut as experts had hoped. … The differences between bees in treated or untreated fields were largely insignificant, and many of the bees in both groups died before they could be counted.

Overall, the data collected from 33 different fields covered 42 analyses and 258 endpoints—a staggering number. The paper only presented a sliver of that data—a selective glimpse of what the research, in its entirety showed.

What patterns emerged when examining the entire data set? Here is a chart assembled from data supplied to the research funders by the CEH (but not released in the published study) with the findings summarized (light green indicates “no impact,” red points to “negative impact,” and dark green suggests neonics had a positive impact).

In sum, of 258 endpoints, 238—92 percent—showed no effects. (Four endpoints didn’t yield data.) Only 16 showed effects. Negative effects showed up 9 times—3.5 percent of all outcomes; 7 showed a benefit from using neonics—2.7 percent.

As one scientist pointed out, in statistics there is a widely accepted standard that random results are generated about 5 percent of the time—which means by chance alone we would expect 13 results meaninglessly showing up positive or negative.

Norman Carreck, science director of the International Bee Research Association, who was not part of either study, noted, the small number of significant effects “makes it difficult to draw any reliable conclusions.”

When pressed, even Pywell acknowledged the conflicting data.

The data were rife with other contradictions. Worker bees and drones in Britain struggled to survive the winter, but the same variety of wild bees increased in Germany. Egg production also increased in Germany but fell in Hungary.

The health problems seemed to have little to do with pesticides. A fungal infection ran roughshod over Hungary’s bees. In Britain, they were decimated by the deadly and unrelenting Varroa destructor mite—even the controls suffered losses 400 percent greater than the national average. These catastrophic loss numbers suggest the field experiments may have been poorly constructed—raising doubts about the standard of research for the entire research project.

The broader context of the bee health controversy is also important to understand; bees are not in sharp decline—not in North America nor in Europe, where neonics are under a temporary ban that shows signs of becoming permanent, nor worldwide. Earlier this week, Canada reported that its honeybee colonies grew 10 percent year over year and now stand at about 800,000. That’s a new record, and the growth tracks the increased use of neonics, which are critical to canola crops in Western Canada, where 80 percent of the nation’s honey originates.

Managed beehives in the U.S. had been in steady decline since the 1940s, as farm land disappeared to urbanization, but began stabilizing in the mid-1990s, coinciding with the introduction of neonicotinoids. They hit a 22-year high in the last count.

Global hive numbers have steadily increased since the 1960s except for two brief periods—the emergency of the Varroa mite in the late 1980s and the brief outbreak of colony collapse disorder, mostly in the U.S., in the mid-2000s.

So the bees, contrary to widespread popular belief, are actually doing all right in terms of numbers, although the Varroa mite remains a dangerous challenge. But still, a cadre of scientists well known for their vocal opposition to and lobbying against neonics have already begun trying to leverage the misinterpretation of the data. “In the light of this new study, continuing to claim that use of neonicotinoids in farming does not harm bees is no longer a tenable position,” David Goulson, a University of Sussex bee biologist, known in anti-neonic circles as a scientist-for-hire, told the U.K.’s Science Media Centre.

But other, less ideologically invested scientists were far more circumspect. “We learn again: It’s complicated,” said biologist Tjeerd Blacquière of Wageningen University in the Netherlands. The mixed findings are likely to intensify ongoing debates about restricting or banning the compounds, with both sides claiming vindication.

The study, while problematic and contradictory in its results, is not without value. It has underscored that it’s possible or even likely that exposure to miticides or insecticides—including neonics, which like all insecticides are designed to target insects—increases the vulnerability of bees to disease and other threats. But that could be said about any chemical, including organic treatments. In Europe, where neonics have been banned since 2013 (based almost entirely on disputed lab studies), farmers have turned to alternatives that are far more toxic to both bees and humans, such as Lorsban and pyrethrins. Canola production is down, and bee health has shown no appreciable change. Farmers are in open revolt, and bees are arguably the worse for it.

Within hours of the release of the study, advocacy groups opposed to intensive agricultural techniques had already begun weaponizing the misreported headlines.

“It shows that industry claims that neonicotinoids do not harm bees at field-relevant concentrations are baseless,” said a Greenpeace senior scientist, a marine biologist with no background in entomology.

“Pressure mounts for a complete ban on neonicotinoid pesticides as landmark study confirms these chemicals are harming bees,” wrote Friends of the Earth.

But viewing the date from the European study in context makes it even more obvious that sweeping statements about the continuing beepocalypse and the deadly dangers to bees from pesticides, and neonicotinoids in particular, are irresponsible. That’s on both the scientists, and the media.


          UPDATE 1-Field studies fuel dispute over whether banned pesticides harm bees   

Two major studies into how bees are affected by a group of pesticides banned in Europe gave mixed results on Thursday, fuelling a row over whether the chemicals, called neonicotinoids, are safe. The studies, one conducted across three European countries and another in Canada, found some negative effects after exposure to neonicotinoids in wild and honeybee populations, but also some positives, depending on the environmental context.


          CORRECTED: Fast forward; GST set to transform face of Indian logistics industry   

(Corrects description for Ascendas-Singbridge in 19th paragraph)

By Promit Mukherjee and Sankalp Phartiyal

MUMBAI (Reuters) - India's greatest tax reform - replacing an array of provincial duties with a nationwide goods and services tax - is transforming the logistics industry in a country where moving stuff around is notoriously difficult to do, executives say.

The advent of organised retail and e-commerce began modernising warehouses in India a decade ago, but most firms still rely on musty, dilapidated "godowns", as storehouses are known colloquially.

The unified tax system is expected to bring change on a far grander scale, removing distortions created by differential taxes and duty structures imposed across India's 29 states and 7 union territories.

"When we moved from one state to the other, it felt like moving from one country to another," said Ramesh Agarwal, chairman of New Delhi-based Agarwal Packers and Movers.

From July 1, the new Goods and Services Tax, or GST, introduced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government, will change all that, with the biggest tax reform seen since India won independence from British colonial rule 70 years ago.

Companies that have previously based storage models on tax efficiency can move to the much more cost efficient, demand-based hub-and-spoke model used globally.

Anticipating the change, Agarwal's firm, for example, has carved India into five regions and is setting up one massive warehouse in each.

"There's no tax arbitrage to be gained. So decisions on manufacturing, warehousing and selling will be purely driven by the real costs of manufacturing and going to market, that is the single biggest advantage of GST," said R Subramanian, Managing Director at DHL Express in Mumbai.

Subramanian still anticipates bureaucratic headaches, notably from GST's e-way bill system, requiring vehicle details from pickup to delivery, which he reckons would generate 90 million entries daily for the express delivery sector alone.

But, the reform, along with the gradual shift in India’s service dominated economy toward more manufacturing, has paved the way for ultra-modern storage sites with automated conveyers, RFID-enabled tracking and IT-enabled warehousing management systems. The potential growth, and investment needed for modernisation has spurred a slew of deals between Indian firms and major global private equity players and pension funds.

In the last two years alone, as Modi made GST a priority, these investors have put $1.5 billion in the warehousing business.

"GST is not only a tax reform, it is also a business reform as a whole, and a lot of businesses are now restructuring their supply chains," said Rohit Jain, a partner with Economic Laws Practice in Mumbai.

REPLACING 'GODOWNS'

Canada Pension Plan Investment Board last month committed to spend $500 million in a joint venture with India's IndoSpace. Other foreign firms putting money in the sector include Carlyle Group , Warbug Pincus and Fairfax India Holdings .

JSW Steel , India's biggest domestic steel producer, is also mulling a plan to bring down the number of its 20 plus warehouses across the country to five, and many more companies are following suit, said a company executive.

Reliance Retail, the retail unit of Reliance Industries , which has around 100 distribution centres across the country, also plans to "optimize some," said a company executive.

Mahindra Logistics is exploring an initial public offering, or a sale to a foreign partner, while rival Future Supply Chain Solutions is looking to do likewise, according to media reports.

With 45 percent of India's gross domestic product concentrated around seven major cities, Arif A Siddiqui at Coign Consulting, specialising in supply chain management, expected investment in warehousing to focus on Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai, and New Delhi.

Singapore-based urban and real estate developer Ascendas-Singbridge has just signed a $600 million deal with Firstspace Realty, based in the south Indian city of Bengaluru, to create 14 million square feet (1.3 million square meters) of industrial warehousing space across six major Indian cities.

"Manufacturing, modern retail and the pharma sector were already driving change in Indian warehousing. GST has just fast-tracked the growth rate in logistics," said Aloke Bhuniya, Chief Executive of Ascendas-Firstspace.

He reckoned that GST has boosted the industry's annual growth rate from 12-15 percent to 20-22 percent, and saw plenty of room for a lot more modernisation.

Out of the logistics industry's 980 million square feet (91 million square meters) of captive, agri-based and cold storage warehousing, Bhuniya estimated 85 percent were old godowns and traditional structures.

"This represents a huge opportunity for modern warehousing to tap into," he said.

Globe and Mail, 24 Jun 2017 - The federal government has announced its intention to legalize cannabis for Canadian adults, with a target date of July, 2018. It would be reasonable to think this change would be well received: Over the past few years, surveys have found that about two-thirds of Canadian support legalization. But as legalization gets closer to becoming a reality, it's being transformed from an abstraction into a raft of concrete choices about licensing, oversight, distribution, packaging and labelling. In good Canadian fashion, there is also a dose of jurisdictional confusion about how Canadians will access their legal cannabis - the federal legislation leaves the distribution and sale of legal cannabis to the provinces and territories.

          Jessica Molaskey's PORTRAITS OF JONI Album to Launch New Imprint Ghostlight Deluxe   

Ghostlight Records will launch a special new label imprint, Ghostlight Deluxe with the latest release from celebrated actress and singer Jessica Molaskey, Portraits of Joni, on Friday, July 28. The album will be available for pre-order starting on Friday, July 7.

Ghostlight Deluxe will be curated by John Pizzarelli and Jessica Molaskey.

Featuring Molaskey's distinctly innovative interpretations, this album mixes elements of jazz, pop, folk and Americana into a uniquely powerful and poignant celebration of the iconic songwriter, Joni Mitchell. Portraits of Joni is produced by Jessica Molaskey, with John Pizzarelli serving as co-producer and Rob and Marcie Orley as executive producers. Album guest stars include Jazz luminaries Larry Goldings, Randy Brecker, Harry Allen and John Pizzarelli.

Jessica will be performing selections from the album in concert in Seattle (July 27-30), New York (August 8-12), Los Angeles (August 17-20), Santa Cruz (August 26) and Escondido, CA (August 27).

Starting on Friday, July 7, customers that pre-order the album via Apple Music will immediately receive the single "Help Me." For more information on the recording, visit www.sh-k-boom.com/jessica-molaskey-portraits-of-joni.

"Our mission at Ghostlight Deluxe," explains Jessica, "is to give theater artists an opportunity and a home to make solo recordings that are singular to their unique talents. Whether it be jazz, pop or the Great American Songbook, we are committed to making albums with the highest quality arrangements and musicianship that integrate all these styles. It is the challenge of Broadway actors to be chameleons, to step into a character and become someone other than themselves. What happens when a Broadway singer decides to step out of costume? What happens when they decide to expose their authentic self through song? Ghostlight Deluxe will produce recordings that don't necessarily feel the need to reach to the back of the balcony, but can effortlessly reach our hearts."

Kurt Deutsch, Ghostlight's founder and president, adds "John and Jessica have been my friends for 20 years. Their technical artistry, stylish interpretations and pure love of music are unparalleled. To collaborate with them on Ghostlight Deluxe is an honor for me and will be a joy for all to hear."

Reflecting on Portraits of Joni, Jessica says, "Joni Mitchell writes songs like a painter. One brush stroke here, another stroke there and you have a portrait of a fully realized soul. I continue to be amazed by how she can create a whole person with her words and music." Album highlights include contemplative takes on many of Mitchell's most popular composition such as "A Case of You," "Chelsea Morning" and the iconic "Both Sides Now," in addition to sly jazz-laced versions of "Dry Cleaner from Des Moines" and "Raised on Robbery."

When Portraits of Joni debuted as part of Lincoln Center's "American Songbook" series at The Allen Room, Molaskey was praised by Stephen Holden in the New York Times for her "uncompromising psychological realism along with an element of surprise that few singers bring to their material. In her voice, joy and pain are so intertwined that they're almost the same thing."Will Friedwald of The Wall Street Journal raved "Joni Mitchell would have to look hard to find a better interpreter and champion than Jessica Molaskey, a highly astute singer and interpreter who's proven her worth repeatedly in the fields of Broadway, cabaret, and jazz." In the Village Voice, David Finkle said "If Joni Mitchell isn't singing her own songs, it's hard to imagine anyone singing them better than Molaskey, a singer whose smoky voice carries the intellect and emotion necessary to capture Mitchell's often chilly immediacy."

Her husband John Pizzarelli, who will release his own album Sinatra & Jobim @ 50 the same day, is featured in a special combination of Mitchell's eternal "The Circle Game" and Antonio Carlos Jobim's 'Waters of March." According to the New York Times, the songs are "transformed a merry-go-round contemplation of the life cycle into an exalted hymn to the natural world." The classic "Little Green" is a vocal duet with their daughter Madeleine Pizzarelli. "All I Want " is presented as a tour-de-force piano solo by Larry Goldings, merged with Jessica's haunting vocal on "Blue."

"Joni's self portraits are beautiful and fragile and often filled with conflict and joy," continues Jessica. "Like the young Joni in 'In France They Kiss on Main Street,' she experienced her coming of age 'under neon signs' in a pinball arcade, while her mother was 'fading in a suburban room' or the overwhelmed Joni in 'A Case of You,' wallowing at the bar and drawing his face "on the back of a cartoon coaster in the blue TV screen light. These portraits are now timeless treasures of a new generations' Great American Songbook. They have been indelibly etched in my heart and soul forever."

Jessica Molaskey is a veteran of a dozen Broadway shows including the revival of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Sunday in the Park with George, which was nominated for nine Tony Awards. She appeared in A Man of No Importance at Lincoln Center, Parade (directed by Hal Prince), Dream, Tommy, Crazy for You, Les Misérables, City of Angels, Chess, Cats and Oklahoma! She most recently played the role of Marie in the City Center Encores! production of The Most Happy Fella. Off Broadway credits include Songs For A New World, Dream True, Wise Guys (Stephen Sondheim, Sam Mendes), and Weird Romance (All Original Cast Recordings).

Ms. Molaskey has five critically-acclaimed solo albums and has performed in concert from Lincoln Center to Carnegie and Disney Hall to the Montreal and Monterey Jazz festivals. For the past decade she and John Pizzarelli have enjoyed a two-month, sold-out engagement at the Café Carlyle in New York, to which Stephen Holden wrote in the New York Times: "They are as good as it gets in any entertainment medium. They are caviar in a world of canned tuna. Once you've acquired the taste, there is no substitute."

She has written songs for a dozen recordings, including the "Greed," part of a commission for Audra McDonald's Seven Deadly Sins at Carnegie Hall and "Cradle and All" with Ricky Ian Gordon for PBS American Songbook. Jessica recently played opposite Ms. McDonald, as Sister Bertha in the NBC-TV version of The Sound Of Music Live! She and her husband host the weekly radio show "Radio Deluxe," which airs in sixty cities around the United States and in Canada.

          A Herman Green playlist   

We were honored to present the life and achievements of Dr. Herman Green in this week's cover story. Here we present a playlist to accompany Dr. Green's life in music. While much of his work was never recorded, such as his years leading the house band at the the legendary Blackhawk jazz club, a few snippets here and there can give us an idea of his milieu. But before we jump into Dr. Green's accomplishments, let's go way back to his roots: the W.C. Handy band, of which Green's father, Herman Washington, Sr., was a member. While we don't know if Washington was on this recording, here's a taste of that Handy sound:

Cut to 1945, and a 15-year-old Herman Green begins playing with Rufus Thomas, Jr. on Beale Street. Those rowdy talent shows and revues weren't recorded, but a few short years later, Rufus made some recordings at Sun Studios, with his young protege on sax, and those were released on Chess Records. No doubt Thomas' sound had become a little more 'modern' by then, but these are some fine blues and R&B sides:


Shortly after starting on Beale Street, Rufus Thomas recommended Green to a young, aspiring blues man named Riley B. King when he was putting together a band. B.B. King  and Green played together for years, until Green joined up with a "bally troupe" and took to the road. After Green left Memphis, King began a recording career that would make him an international star. Here are his first recordings.

Herman Green didn't make these sessions, but these sides, recorded by Sam Phillips, give you a taste of how he sounded in 1949. As King told Blues Access magazine, "My very first recordings [in 1949] were for a company out of Nashville called Bullet, the Bullet Record Transcription company," King recalls. "I had horns that very first session. I had Phineas Newborn on piano; his father played drums, and his brother, Calvin, played guitar with me. I had Tuff Green on bass, Ben Branch on tenor sax, his brother, Thomas Branch, on trumpet, and a lady trombone player."

The Phineas Newborn, Sr., band was a fixture on the local scene back then, all of them close associates of Herman Green. Here's the sound of Memphis, ca. 1949, and that lady on trombone sure can blow!

While the above sessions were going down, Herman Green was very likely touring the East Coast and Canada. When he'd had enough of that, he landed in New York for a spell. Practically as soon as he arrived, he attended a jam session at Birdland hosted by Sonny Stitt and Art Blakey. Here's a Sonny Stitt record from 1950. Although Green never recorded with Stitt, this is a taste of what he walked into when he visited Birdland for the first time:

After leaving New York, being drafted into service in Korea, and finally returning stateside, Herman Green settled in as leader of the house band at the Blackhawk. No recordings (that we know of) exist of this period of Herman's life, but here's a taste of Miles Davis and his touring band (not including the house band or Herman) playing that legendary club a few years later. Soak in the murmur of the crowd, the sound of the room, and you can almost taste the cocktails and smell the smoke.

By the late fifties, Green had joined Lionel Hampton and His Orchestra. Fortunately, we do have some of their performances from his time on record. Here are a couple from 1960-61, live at the Metropole in New York. Herman Green is listed in the orchestra credits. Is that him taking those sizzling sax solos?

By the end of the sixties, Green had left Lionel Hampton and settled back in Memphis for good. Playing many sessions in the hopping recording scene back then, he also quietly pursued his love of jazz. You can find some CD's of his band, The Green Machine, though little of it exists on YouTube. But here's a little gem of Green and colleagues blowing on Monk's "Round Midnight". An informal, loose session, it captures what happens when jazz players just want to play, for whoever may show up:

By 1987, Herman Green had helped to found the band Freeworld, and he's been playing with them ever since. Here's a tune he wrote and recorded with them in 1996, from the album You Are Here. That's Green on flute.

Green still plays Beale Street every week with Freeworld. We'll wrap things up with a little taste of how it sounds when he steps up to the mic. It's a bit stunning to think that he could have been playing this very song when he first stepped on a Memphis stage in 1945. And it would have been every bit as bawdy...

          Liberals extend Canada's 'advise and assist' mission in Iraq to March 2019   

The federal government has ordered the military to stay in Iraq for at least two more years, as the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant prepares to enter a new phase. But despite a request from NATO for police trainers, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says there are "absolutely no plans" to send Canadian troops back into Afghanistan.


          29 June 1887: Lena Wilwerding is born on this day   
June 29, 1887
Grand Prairie, Nobles County, Minnesota

Lena WILWERDING is born on this day, daughter of Canach, Luxembourg-born Nicholas WILWERDING (1833-1923) and Margaretha HAUER (1847-1934) who was born near Trier, Germany. The obituary of Nicholas WILWERDING published in Minnesota’s Nobles County Democrat newspaper of February 15, 1923 recaps the immigrant family’s history in the USA:
The funeral of Nick Wilwerding whose death was mentioned in the last week's issue of The Democrat, was held at the St. Adrian Church last Friday morning, the Rt. Rev. Fr. Otto Zachmann having charge of the service. Interment was made in St. Adrians Cemetery. The deceased was born on October 31, 1833, at Canach, Luxembourg, and came to this country when 21 years of age. In 1863 or 1864 he arrived in Scott County, MN and settled there on a farm. In 1867 he was united in marriage to Margietta Hauer. About the year 1885 they moved to Nobles County, settling on a farm in Grand Prairie Township. Five years ago they moved to Adrian. Thirteen children were born to this union, Elizabeth dying in infancy and Charles on October 8, 1921, at the age of 38 years. The surviving children are: Nicholas Wilwerding of Blaisdell ND., Kaytherina now Sister Hildergard of Tiffen, Ohio, William, Michael, Matthew and John all of Mooreton North Dakota; Augusta now Sister M. Ida, and Lena, now Sister M. Alma both of Rochester MN.; Mrs. Mike Krieps of Tako Saskatchewan, Canada, and Mary and Maggie at home. Also three grandchildren. The deceased was a faithful member of St. Adrian's Church and was honored and respected by all who knew him. All the children were present at the funeral with the exception of Mrs. Mike Krieps of Tako, Canada; Sister Hildegard of Tiffen, Ohio, and Nicholas of Blaisdell, North Dakota.

Three of the six daughters born in the Wilwerding-Hauer household opt to serve the Catholic Church as nuns: Catherina as Sister Hildegard; Augusta as Sister M. Ida; and Lena as Sister M. Alma.

          Mermaid Illustration Mermaid Watercolor Painting Print Japanese Kimono Mermaid Asian Style Home Wall Decor Red White Dark Blue Geisha Girl by mikaart   

8.99 USD

Mermaid Illustration print for home wall decor. Watercolor painting of Japanese mermaid. Great addition to mermaid collection.

When I was a child in Japan, I loved the story "A mermaid and red candles". Recently, I came across the story as an adult and was surprised at the darkness of this story. It's a sad story of human greed betraying the innocence of nature, and the harsh punishment from nature in a return. Nonetheless, the imagery of the story is beautiful to those who are familiar with Japanese culture. (Long black hair, red on white, candle lights at the Shinto shrine, night time darkness in the countryside...)

This is a print of my illustration inspired by, "A mermaid and red candles". It is painted with watercolor and ink, then additional effects and colors were added digitally. It measures 4"x 6", 5" x 7". You can mat and frame it (as suggested in display) or just directly pop it into a 4"x 6", 5" x 7" or 8" x 10" frame. It is basically the same as a photo - so if you have experience putting your favorite photos into frames, you can frame this illustration in the same way. A framed illustration would make a very unique gift for someone you love or yourself.

*Please note that you are purchasing the print only. Mat and frame are not included*

It is printed on Fujicolor Crystal Archive photo paper. The finish is matte.

The print is signed and dated at back. It will be shipped to you in a protective plastic sleeve, between two rigid pieces of card-boards to protect from bending.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- I will ship most orders within 3 business days after payment is received.
- Payments received Friday/Saturday/Sunday will ship the following Monday.
