New online tool featuring video testimonies of Holocaust survivors debuts at UNNew online tool featuring video testimonies of Holocaust survivors debuts at UN


23 January 2012Students everywhere will have the opportunity to learn more about the Holocaust thanks to a new online educational resource that debuted at United Nations Headquarters today and showcases video testimonies of survivors of one of the world’s greatest tragedies. IWitness – produced by the Shoah Foundation Institute at the University of Southern California – provides teachers and students access to the video testimonies of more than 1,000 Holocaust eyewitnesses from the Institute’s archive of nearly 52,000 testimonies.“As students learn more about the Holocaust and the significance of this history today, they will soon discover its connection to their own lives and communities,” said Kiyo Akasaka, UN Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information. The UN partnered with the Shoah Foundation Institute in bringing more than 350 high school students to the world body’s Headquarters to discuss their experiences with IWitness and to interview Holocaust survivor Roman Kent, whose testimony they have studied as part of IWitness.“Our collaboration with the Shoah Foundation Institute is another wonderful example of how the Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Programme works with organizations around the world to help young people – like yourselves – understand the history and horrors of one of the world’s greatest tragedies that occurred many, many years ago before you were born,” Mr. Akasaka told participants at the event.“With the IWitness online application, students everywhere can search, watch and learn about the real life stories of more than 1,000 Holocaust survivors,” he said. “You will also learn about the dangers of hatred and prejudice in our world today.”The Shoah Foundation Institute was established by United States filmmaker Steven Spielberg in 1994 to collect and preserve the testimonies of the survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust. It maintains one of the largest video digital libraries in the world – nearly 52,000 video testimonies in 32 languages and from 56 countries.“Through IWitness, survivors will continue to teach students about the Holocaust, inspire them to oppose intolerance, and empower them to develop the literacies needed for the 21st century,” said Stephen D. Smith, the Institute’s Executive Director. “We are grateful to the nearly 52,000 witnesses who have entrusted their memories to the Institute as a guiding light for all humanity.”Today’s programme was held as part of a series of events to mark the International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust, which is observed annually on 27 January. This year’s theme is “Children and the Holocaust.”In a related development, the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) announced that Samuel Pisar, a Polish-born Holocaust survivor and acclaimed international lawyer, author and human rights activist, will be designated as an Honorary Ambassador and Special Envoy for Holocaust Education.Mr. Pisar will receive the designation at a ceremony on Friday at UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris. read more


Canadian dollar makes slight gain despite weaker crude oil priceCanadian dollar makes slight gain despite weaker crude oil price

Crude supplies grew by 8.5 million barrels to 367.6 million barrels. That’s 8.4 per cent higher than at the same time last year.Gold stocks rose 1.1 per cent, while the December bullion increased 50 cents to closing the session at US$1,771.70 an ounce. December copper was up 2.7 cents to US$3.81 a pound.In Canada, the Teranet–National Bank National Composite House Price Index showed that prices rose a meagre 0.2 per cent in August from the month prior. That marks the weakest month-over-month increase in 12 years.The somewhat downbeat data ran against a report on U.S. home sales from the National Association of Realtors that said they jumped to the highest level in more than two years in August. Sales rose 7.8 per cent to a seasonally-adjusted annual rate of 4.82 million, the most since May 2010.The U.S. Commerce Department said builders started construction on more homes in August, driven by the fastest pace of single-family home construction in more than two years.“August starts and permit numbers were so-so, but the broader trends suggest that the U.S. housing recovery is solidifying,” said BMO Capital Markets senior economist Robert Kavcic in a note.Earlier, the Bank of Japan said it was increasing its asset purchasing fund to 55 trillion yen (US$700 billion) from 45 trillion yen to counter the strength of the Japanese currency. A strong yen makes it more difficult for Japanese companies to compete in international markets.The Bank of Japan’s move comes days after the U.S. Federal Reserve revealed it will purchase an average of $40 billion a month in mortgage-backed securities until the economy shows significant improvement. read more


Montreal mayor asks Ottawa to intervene to delay demolition of Mirabel airportMontreal mayor asks Ottawa to intervene to delay demolition of Mirabel airport


by Peter Rakobowchuk, The Canadian Press Posted May 2, 2014 3:47 pm MDT Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre answers reporters’ questions about a plan to demolish Mirabel airport during a news conference Friday, May 2, 2014 at city hall. The airport, which has been described as a white elephant, first opened with great fanfare in 1975 , but was shutdown in 2004. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Peter Ray Montreal mayor asks Ottawa to intervene to delay demolition of Mirabel airport AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email MONTREAL – Montreal’s mayor wants Ottawa to prevent the local airport authority from demolishing Mirabel airport.James Cherry, president and CEO of the Aeroports de Montreal airport authority, has launched a call for tenders to demolish Mirabel, which has had no passenger flights since 2004.Since then, all such traffic has passed through Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport in suburban Dorval.Mayor Denis Coderre said Friday he wants Denis Lebel, the federal minister responsible for infrastructure, to contact Transport Minister Lisa Raitt to halt the demolition to give Mirabel Mayor Jean Bouchard time to present an alternative solution.“I’m asking him (Lebel) to speak with minister Raitt and tell her to give us more time — a couple of months, so we can look at alternatives,” Coderre said.“There’s no need to demolish it tomorrow morning,” Coderre told a news conference.He said he and other Montreal-area mayors are behind Mirabel’s efforts to protect the airport from the wrecker’s ball.“If you have men and women who think they can find an alternative, our role is to support them,” Coderre said. “If that doesn’t work, then at the end of the line, we’ll take decisions.”The Montreal-Mirabel Corporation, a non-profit group, is preparing a feasibility study on transforming the airport into a convention centre. One proposal would be to have it play host to an international aeronautics show, similar to the one held annually in Europe.The Mirabel mayor and former Quebec premier Bernard Landry are members of the corporation.Mirabel was billed as the airport of the future when it first opened in 1975. Officials predicted at the time that 60 million passengers would pass through its gates annually by 2010, but yearly passengers traffic never surpassed three million.New infrastructures, which were to include a high-speed rail link and a highway linking Montreal directly to the airport were never completed.The federal government expropriated more than 324 square kilometres of prime farmland, but only used 16 square kilometres for the airport. A total of 10,000 people had also been forced from their homes.Aircraft manufacturing giant Bombardier still has a huge plant and a testing centre near the sprawling airport complex, 40 kilometres north of Montreal. read more


Ohio State wrestlings Logan Stieber earns national title Buckeyes place 6th inOhio State wrestlings Logan Stieber earns national title Buckeyes place 6th in


Logan Stieber took home a national championship title for the second year in a row as the Ohio State wrestling team earned sixth place out of 10 teams at the NCAA Championships over the weekend. The Buckeyes, who tallied 59.5 points, finished behind Penn State (123.5), Oklahoma State (119.5), Minnesota (103), Iowa (73) and Cornell (65). The Nittany Lions’ national title is their third in a row. Redshirt sophomore Stieber, of the 133-pound weight class, was the star of the tournament for OSU. Stieber, the No. 1 seed, capped off a perfect season, 27-0, with his defeat of Iowa redshirt junior and No. 2-seeded Tony Ramos 7-4. In the pair’s last meeting at the Big Ten Championship finals on March 10, Stieber took down Ramos, 3-1, in a sudden victory. But the wins are nothing out of the ordinary: lifetime, Stieber is 5-0 against the Hawkeye. “I was able to get into my offense early and open the match up against Ramos,” Stieber said in a press release. “That was the difference this time.” Stieber’s brother, sophomore Hunter Stieber, finished third in the 141-pound class. In Hunter Stieber’s semifinals match, the No. 1 seed suffered a narrow 7-6 loss to Edinboro’s Mitchell Port before earning consecutive victories over Cornell’s Michael Nevinger (9-0) and the Citadel’s Ugi Khishignyam (12-4). Overall, Hunter Stieber finished his second All-American season with an impressive 36-1 record. Fellow two-time All-American and redshirt junior Nick Heflin finished fifth in the tournament at 174 pounds. After being defeated by Minnesota’s Logan Storley, 3-2, Heflin was sent to the fifth-place bout to face-off with Iowa’s Michael Evans. In their previous matchup on Jan. 4, Evans beat Heflin in a 9-4 sudden victory. However, the story was different this time as Heflin pinned his opponent in 2:10 to earn the win. He concluded his season with a 20-7 record. Senior Nikko Triggas (125 pounds), redshirt senior C.J. Magrum (184), redshirt sophomore Josh Demas (157) and freshman Mark Martin (165) were all eliminated on the second day of the tournament. Redshirt junior Ian Paddock (149) and sophomore Andrew Campolattano (197) were eliminated on the tournament’s first day. The championships were held at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa. read more

Octowheel skateboard seeks funding on Kickstarter to cruise down stairsOctowheel skateboard seeks funding on Kickstarter to cruise down stairs


first_imgSkateboards are a neat way to get from place to place, but only if everything is built at ground level. All those stairs make it quite a bit harder to roll around. This problem has been plaguing humanity for far too long, but there is a new Kickstarter that is valiantly standing up to the injustice of stairs. How? With an 8-wheeled skateboard.The Stair-Rover uses a standard longboard frame, but has a v-shaped bar attached to the axle where each of the four wheels should be. Each one of these bars has two wheels on it, which lets the whole assembly tilt to match the angle of the surface it’s on. So if you’re rolling down stairs, each set of wheels can tilt as you hit each edge, resulting in a smooth ride. The design looks a bit futuristic.The creators also point out it’s good for more than just stairs. The Stair-Rover can make skateboarding possible on any uneven surface like cobblestone or cracked cement. On flat ground it performs just like a regular high-end longboard, although it offers a bit more stability in tight turns.The chassis itself is made from thermoplastic to reduce the weight, but the whole package still clocks in at about 5kg. Aluminum components are used for the more vital components where the wheels attach and the frame is mounted to the board.The backer levels take into account some interested parties might want to build their own board, so for £125 you can get the standard white or black chassis — no wheels, no bearings, and no board. Bump that up to £170 to get the whole working package in white with a maple deck. It’ll be £205 if you want the black Pro version with a maple/fiberglass deck.The Kickstarter has until August 1st to raise £50,000 (about $76,000). It has under £10,000 to go at this point.last_img read more

first_imgNEW YORK — U.S. stocks plunged to their worst loss in eight months on Wednesday as technology companies continued to drop. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 831 points.The losses were widespread, and stocks that have been the biggest winners on the market the last few years, including technology companies and retailers, suffered steep declines. Apple and Amazon both had their worst day in two and a half years.The Nasdaq composite, which has a high concentration of technology companies, had its biggest loss in more than two years.Alec Young, managing director of global markets research at FTSE Russell, said investors fear that rising interest rates and growing expenses are going to erode company profits next year.“The tax cuts juiced earnings this year and that’s not sustainable,” he said. “The market’s starting to say that the glass may be half empty.”The S&P 500 index sank 94.66 points, or 3.3 percent, to 2,785.68.

With nine mixtapes under his belt, and countless featured appearances alongside artists such as Kanye West, 2 Chainz, Kid Cudi, and Common, among others, CyHi The Prynce — aka Cydel Young — will drop his debut LP, No Dope On Sundays, on Nov. 17. “I didn’t want to rap about where I am now in life,” Young explained to Billboard regarding his songwriting process for No Dope On Sundays. “I wanted to take fans to the beginning of who I am.”That sentiment also informed his decision to heavily feature fellow rapper ScHoolboy Q on the album’s lead single, “Movin’ Around.””[ScHoolboy Q] is one of the first genuine people that I met in hip-hop, him and Kendrick Lamar,” Young points out. “[He] felt like someone that I hung with [growing up].”Young also spoke to Billboard at length about his approach to handling the dichotomy between his strict religious upbringing and deeply held faith and the realities of street culture and the trap music scene.”I have to tell my mom and dad, ‘Don’t blow my cover. I am undercover for the Lord,'” he said. “We talk about new suggestions for a better way of life. …They don’t realize it because I am sitting with the pistols everywhere, I am in there in the trap house with them. But it’s like they have a different type of conversation with me.”Young also touched briefly on the legendary artists who helped him get his start — Beyoncé is credited as the person who convinced Kanye West that she should first sign Young to G.O.O.D. Music back in 2010.”I believe Jay-Z is the poster child for what every young black man who came from the struggle went through,” he said. On the subject of West, Young lauded the Chicago legend’s devotion to the creative process. “He keeps me so close [because of] the brainstorming of our projects … Kanye West and I hear something we like, and we sit down and have a three-hour meeting about it.”Why Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” Stands Tall: For The Recordlast_img read more

first_imgNews Report: How To Increase Music’s Value In Your City report-how-music-creates-jobs-drives-tourism-improves-wellness-more Creating Inter-City Music NetworksIn fact, the report goes another step to show how connection between music cities can benefit local markets on a global scale, examining Music Cities Network, a resource for improving communication and cooperation between music communities around the world. This is just one tool the report offers toward its encouragement to “be international,” by starting, “With your sister cities and existing partnerships in other municipal departments, from tourism to economic development.”This top-down and bottom-up approach provides everyone who touches or is affected by music with steps to take toward a stronger community. And the best news is the benefits of a healthy music city go beyond cultural, social and even economic areas. Music’s ability to improve health and wellbeing means, as the report states, “Better, happier, more efficient people, from birth to death.”As thousands descend upon Austin and SXSW 2019 kicks off its Music Conference, the Sound Diplomacy report provides the framework to implement new ideas across the musical landscape in any town, making the adage of “think globally, act locally” more than a bumper sticker.Likewise, the Recording Academy continues its work on behalf of music creators across many tiers of the industry, from local events to educate and connect members to game-changing Advocacy work on Capitol Hill. Through these tireless efforts, and projects such as working with Sound Diplomacy in its Chapter cities, the Academy continues to support and foster a better tomorrow for music.Recording Academy Task Force On Diversity And Inclusion Announces Initiative To Expand Opportunities For Female Producers And EngineersRead more Email Twitter Facebook Report: How Music Creates Jobs, Drives Tourism, Improves Wellness & More In the spirit of this connectivity of resources, and to coincide with this year’s SXSW, international strategic consultants Sound Diplomacy released a special report titled “The Music Cities Manual: How Music Increases Economic, Social And Cultural Growth In Your City.” The extensive report details the what, why and how of supporting music locally through everything from city policy to education and communication and beyond, providing a fresh and tangible idea bank for music people in cities and towns of all sizes to spur and sustain growth.As partners of the Recording Academy, Sound Diplomacy shares the mission of supporting music by thinking big but starting small and understanding the power of local music markets have to lift up the industry at large. The Academy’s 12 Chapters serve music communities nationwide based on the core philosophy that when local music economies innovate and thrive, the entire community benefits. Many of the principles in Sound Diplomacy’s report speak directly to the work the Academy does each day to keep music strong across a diverse array of local marketplaces.Inside The Music Cities Manual”The Music Cities Manual” describes itself as “a set of tools, case studies and lessons to increase the value of music in your city,” i.e., a report for everyone involved in the music process from musicians to developers, city government to bar owners and festivals to hoteliers. The report also showcases music’s uncanny ability to create jobs, drive tourism, enhance social inclusion and even improve wellness. However, as the report points out, “few cities understand how to plan, manage and develop music for economic, social and cultural gain.” In other words, how can cities best optimize the power of music to benefit their local economy? “Music pumps from speakers in shopping malls and metro stations, hospitals and car parks. From choirs in churches to the call to prayer, from the boardrooms of our multinational record labels to the basement of a pub, music fosters creativity, dialogue, creates commerce and incubates talent.”Music As InfrastructureIn order to solve a problem, we must first understand it. Sound Diplomacy’s method outlines 13 key indicators of a thriving music policy, centering around the idea that music is infrastructure. This means city governance declaring, through official communication, music’s importance to its community. Let’s look to the Midwest: The report cites Chicago’s 2007 Chicago Music Policy as one of the first to send this message to not only its own local community, but to people everywhere about the importance of music’s role in Chicago.The report’s 13 key indicators are chock-full of resources for action items such as creating a coalition, asset mapping, sparking tourism, supporting venues, encouraging entrepreneurs, expanding music education, and prioritizing affordability. All of these measures speak to a connectivity between creatives, policymakers and business owners that can grow a city’s music community in a healthy and lasting way.Cities As Agents Of ChangeSound Diplomacy also presents several case studies, taking a closer look at Melbourne, Australia’s “Agent Of Change” principle, which set new obligations on property developers to adequately soundproof buildings within 50 feet of an existing venue, London’s Music Venue Trust task force, which provided an outline for the city’s grassroots venues to thrive, and New York City’s repeal of its outdated Cabaret Law, making the Big Apple much for more friendlier for live music and entertainment. These real-world cases provide easily relatable change examples, and considering the sheer size of the cities referenced, the notion of making an impact in smaller music communities seems far less daunting. Recording Academy partner Sound Diplomacy unleashes “a set of tools, case studies and lessons to increase the value of music in your city”Nate HertweckGRAMMYs Mar 14, 2019 – 10:43 am For anyone working in the music world, Austin, Texas is the place to be in mid-March each year.

first_img(Representational image)Reuters FileAir travel always comes with its own share of difficulties and airlines strive to make lives easier for the passengers. However, this particular British Airways passenger was disgusted beyond measures when he found a massive vomit stain on his seat’s leg rest on his flight from London to Seattle.Dave Gildea recounted his experience to Sun Online saying that he was two hours into the flight when he noticed the dried up vomit. He had gotten himself an upgrade to business class and was getting ready to take a nap and pop up the footrest. There was a big patch of dried up vomit and on further investigation, Dave found vomit on the walls near the foot rest too. Twitter/@thecloudrangerTo make matters worse, the cabin crew refused to cooperate with Dave when he brought up the complaint with them. They did not change his seat nor did they give him a blanket to cover up the stain.”I went to the cabin crew and the attendant’s first response was ‘Was this here when you boarded?’ but it was clear it was dried in. He didn’t offer a seat change or an apology, so I asked for a blanket to cover it up so I could put my feet down,” Dave said.He was forced to sleep in the vomit for 10 hours and the cabin crew did not give him an apology too.”Of course as I slept, I moved around on the blanket so I woke up with dried vomit on my feet. ‘It was pretty disgusting. With the price I paid for the ticket, I was shocked,” Dave said.Two weeks after the incident, British Airways hasn’t given any answer and informed him that they were looking into the incident.A British Airways spokesperson said, “We pride ourselves on delivering a high standard of service and an enjoyable experience on board our flights, and we are sorry that on this occasion this fell short of our customers’ expectations.”We are investigating and are in contact with the customer to apologise and resolve this matter.”last_img read more

Peterson was up-and-down behind it; he twice rushed for more than 130 yards with Arizona, but failed to eclipse 30 yards three times.Peterson thinks the Redskins line is best he’s had since he was behind the Vikings offensive front that helped him break the 2,000-yard mark.“I’ve learned that I can be a little more patient because they have guys that are going to do their job up front,” he said. “So that’s something that I’ve been adjusting to, just being more patient on particular runs.”The NFL will gets its first look at Peterson’s new chapter on Sunday at State Farm Field.Though his time in Arizona was limited, Peterson thinks he was able to make an impact on his former teammates.“I’m excited to get back there and to go up against those guys that I practiced against last year and I helped make better, I feel like,” he said. 7 Comments   Share   Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories center_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson hopes his first rush against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday will go for 37 yards.Doing so would volt his career rushing yards ahead of Marshall Faulk (12,279) and Jim Brown (12,312) to put Peterson in the top-10 of all-time running back yardage.“God willing, on my first run, I can go ahead and break it,” he said on SiriusXM NFL Radio on Thursday.Going from an unsigned running back to the announced Week One starter over a span of about two weeks, Peterson said he has more to play for.last_img read more
