Alexandra Rogers Tuesday 27 November 2018 1:56 pm whatsapp But a case to reverse that vote has been brought by a group of Scottish politicians who argue that Article 50 can be revoked and that June’s 2016 referendum was not legally binding.The ECJ is hearing the case today and judges said they would deliver a decision “quickly”, according to Reuters, but did not give a specific date.“These petitioners need to know the options for revocation which are open to withdrawing member states now, to allow them – properly and in a fully informed way – to carry out their duties as democratically elected representatives,” said Aidan O’Neill, a lawyer for the politicians, according to Reuters.Under Article 50, any country that wishes to withdraw from the EU has until two years to agree an exit deal, a deadline that can only be extended with the permission of all other 27 EU member states.If the ECJ rules in the SNP politicians’ favour it will give hope to those advocating a second referendum as it would show that no Brexit is an alternative to both the deal struck by May and no deal. center_img Lawyers for the government have argued that any ECJ ruling would be irrelevant as a second referendum is against government policy.Meanwhile, lawyers for the EU warned that allowing the UK to reverse its departure without the agreement of other member states could open the door for other countries to abuse the exit process.Hubert Legal, speaking for the EU’s executive commission, said countries could give notice of their decision to leave before seeking better terms in order to remain in the bloc, Reuters reported.The legal challenge comes as May prepares to sell her Brexit deal to the House of Commons, which is set to pass or reject it in a vote on 11 December. She is facing opposition from MPs across all parties.This morning, former defence secretary Michael Fallon said May’s Brexit deal was “doomed” and must be renegotiated – an option that has been ruled out by EU negotiators who have said it is the “only deal possible”.

Tighten scrutiny of City regulators post-Brexit, report says

first_imgA further recommendation of the report was for a simplification and consolidation of the UK’s financial rules. “The pace and scale of regulatory change over the past ten years has led to considerable regulatory overlap, presenting a pressing need for coordination between regulators,” it said. “We’re sitting on one of the equal top, or in fact the top, financial centre in the world,” he said, adding that the UK should not bind itself. Harry Robertson Among its numerous other recommendations was that the UK should become more plugged in to international regulations and formally take them into account “where appropriate”.

“Soldiers Turned Artists” Explores the Consequences of War

first_imgArt“Soldiers Turned Artists” Explores the Consequences of WarIn a powerful group show at the Craft and Folk Art Museum, veterans use art to express the impacts of combatBy Amy Newlove Schroeder – May 26, 2015619ShareEmailFacebookTwitterPinterestReddIt“How we forget, that is where the suffering and death is,” says visual artist and Iraq war veteran Ash Kyrie. “As we move away from the event, critical information is being lost, slowly but surely.” In a painful and poignant new show, “Art and Other Tactics: Contemporary Craft by Artist Veterans,” which opened Saturday at the Craft and Folk Art Museum, U.S. military vets from the last 60 years of conflicts seek to remind us of the consequences of war.Curated by Emily Zaiden of the Craft in America Study Center, this group show brings together a broad range of artists and artworks, from paintings to sculpture to works such as Kyrie’s wall-sized digital photograph. The heavily pixilated image features a young, injured Afghani girl, and is rather messily attached to the wall: the mess is quickly explained, when Kyrie urges viewers to rip bits of the photo off the wall. “Rip it off,” he says. “That’s where the art is!”The exhibit also hosts well-known names, such as Gulf War vet and potter Ehren Tool, whose war-themed cups have become collector’s items, and newer artists, such as Judas Recendez, who lost both legs in Iraq and now creates using a potter’s wheel adapted for use with a hand pump. Recendez’s “Large Vase,” which is glazed in red iron oxide, inevitably reminds viewers of blood. And so the show not only draws attention to the intersection of war and art, but also to the ways that war affects makers of art.The most arresting pieces in the show were not, perhaps, the most violent or the most direct: “War Pigs,” for example, a repetitive ceramic sculpture by Giuseppe Pellicano, which shows a row of pig heads adorned with machine gun bullet chains, feels a bit too blunt. But Robin Shores’ sculptures, “Queen Mary Crossing the Desert” and “She Thought She Was the Pharaoh,” both of which are intended to critique now-imprisoned Lynndie England, are wrenching, allusive, and subtly provocative.“Queen Mary,” which is about 12 inches long, comprises a kind of long boat or canoe, with five little scrub trees for passengers. The sculpture alludes not only to the luxury liner the Queen Mary, but also to Elizabeth I, gliding down the Thames, flanked by courtiers. “She Thought She was the Pharaoh” portrays two figures in a chariot: one, perhaps Cleopatra, stands, holdings reins and chains, while the other grovels, attacked by a dog. The neo-imperialist nature of the Abu Graib incident is made clear in Shores’ work, as well as the historical context for England’s crimes. While Shores’ pieces are small in size, they are among the most powerful works in the show.Don’t miss Pam DeLuco’s “Paper Dolls,” a graphic work of text and image, which draws upon the experiences of women who have served. DeLuco collected and recorded the experiences of women across many generations and different branches of the military, focusing on female military apparel and appearance. Each woman tells her story, such as the story of a marine being handed a lipstick by her drill instructor, who snapped, “Fix yourself, recruit. But try not to look slutty.” DeLuco teamed up with illustrator Annemaree Rea, who created a paper doll to accompany each participant’s tale. The stories are spare and poetic, and the paper dolls are both delicate and tough.There is no question that the losses, stresses, and pains of war are reflected in the crafts and artworks contained in “Art and Other Tactics.” “Sacrifice is the most heavily mediated thing that we see,” Ash Kyrie asserts. Be certain that you take the time to honor the sacrifices made by these soldier-makers.Art and Other Tactics: Contemporary Craft by Artist Veterans will be on exhibit at CAFAM until September 6 TAGSArt and Other Tactics: Contemporary Craft by Artist VeteransAsh KyrieCraft and Folk Art MuseumCraft in America Study CenterEhren ToolJudas RecendezPam DeLucoPrevious articleSpooky Old Ghost Stealing Attention from Other Ghosts at Disneyland’s Haunted MansionNext articleArnold Schwarzenegger Will Reprise His Role in New Conan MovieAmy Newlove Schroeder RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORA New Exhibit Lets LGBTQ Inmates Reach Out from Behind BarsThe 12 Best Things to Do in L.A. in NovemberLegendary DTLA Artist Gronk Hand Paints Incredible Theater Sets Like This Onelast_img read more

News / World’s biggest carriers grew again last year as ever-bigger boxships arrived

first_img According to Alphaliner’s 2014-2015 fleet review of the top 20 ocean carriers, Maersk Line increased its total cellular capacity by 318,000 teu in 2014 to 2.89m teu, equating to 604 ships and an expansion of 12% on 2013.The world’s second biggest container line – and Maersk Line’s partner in the soon-to-be-launched east-west 2M alliance – MSC, grew its operating capacity by a more modest 168,000 teu, or 7% in 2014, to reach 2.54m teu on a fleet of 497 owned and chartered vessels.However, Alphaliner notes that MSC is set to receive 30 new ships this year with a total capacity of 357,000 teu – including six 19,200 teu units on long-term charter – which could see the Geneva-headquartered carrier move ahead of Maersk in the world rankings, at least in terms of capacity.That said, following the final delivery of its 20 flagship Triple-E 18,300 teu vessels, Maersk is likely to announce a new fleet refurbishment programme, which could include a combination of owned and chartered-in ships. The question is, how important is it to Maersk management for the line to maintain its pole position?Third-ranked CMA CGM (excluding the still to be finalised acquisition of OPDR) boosted its fleet by 9% in 2014, adding 139,000 teu to reach 1.6m teu for 446 ships. The French carrier will also take delivery of new ships this year: 25, equating to a further 268,800 teu.CMA CGM will join CSCL and UASC to launch the Ocean Three (O3) alliance in mid-January, and the two partners also ramped up their fleets in 2014, with CSCL increasing its cellular capacity by 14% to 674,000 teu; and UASC up by 25% to 350,000 teu – and it is preparing for a steroid injection of ultra-large container vessels this year.The ‘new’ Hapag-Lloyd, which incorporated the container business of CSAV at the end of last year, now sits at number four in the world rankings, with 980,000 teu of capacity. However, its combined fleet actually shrank by 2%, or 18,000 teu, as a consequence of merger rationalisation.Evergreen, which has been overhauled by Hapag-Lloyd to sit at fifth place in the world rankings, continued its “aggressive expansion” in 2014, adding 187,000 teu of newbuild tonnage to reach 945,000 teu of capacity. This included eight units of 13,800 teu on long-term charter and represented a change of strategy for the Taiwanese carrier that had hitherto shunned the ULCV club.The most notable fall in capacity amongst the top carriers came from APL which reduced its operating fleet by 12% to 562,000 teu and now sits at a lowly number 10 in the world rankings.Alphaliner noted that APL’s capacity reduction policy, which included the redelivery of a massive 155,000 teu of chartered-in tonnage, failed to stem the losses incurred by its parent NOL, which widened to $175m in the first nine months of 2014 from $61m in the same period of the previous year, and thus capped a “miserable year” for the Singapore-based carrier.

Using social distancing to test if technology can solve the loneliness epidemic

first_imgFirst OpinionUsing social distancing to test if technology can solve the loneliness epidemic Tags Coronavirusmental healthpatients Robin Utrecht / SOPA Images/Sipa USA The dangers of diminishing human contact don’t end with mental health. As a physician, I’m struck by an emerging body of evidence that links social isolation to poor physical health. People who are socially isolated are more likely to be obese, have high blood pressure, and experience musculoskeletal problems. They’re more susceptible to viral respiratory infections (including, more than likely, Covid-19). They’re also at an increased risk of coronary heart disease and stroke. All told, social isolation increases the odds of dying prematurely — from any cause — by roughly 50%, on a par with smoking, and exceeding the risks of obesity or a sedentary lifestyle. Related: In a time of distancing due to coronavirus, the health threat of loneliness looms Nicole Van Groningen Leave this field empty if you’re human: A new wave of social platforms aim to enhance the quality of our digital interactions by actively eschewing the traditional volume-based constructs of “likes” and “follows.” Ikaria and Cocoon, for instance, are social networks built to include only the special people in our lives and are designed to enhance the quality of these existing relationships. Beyond social media, virtual assistant services like Monaru prompt users to take steps toward deepening connections with loved ones. Even artificial intelligence chatbots and robotic pets have been developed to reduce loneliness, particularly in older individuals, and research on their effectiveness has been promising.Companies that offer technological solutions such as these could leverage the public’s increased demand for their services to test their effectiveness. This could come in the form of measuring loneliness with one of several validated scales before and after a period of use. It could also be done by studying how users interact with the platforms to identify the highest-yield strategies for mitigating loneliness.Researches in public health, psychology, and sociology could offer expertise in collaboration. To expand the availability of digital loneliness solutions, companies might even consider offering some services for free, as other platforms such as fitness websites and streaming services have done. Even more important, they could consider providing additional technological support to older users, who are at highest risk for loneliness but tend to be less digitally inclined.At this point in the trajectory of the Covid-19 pandemic, social distancing appears to be our reality for the foreseeable future. Let’s use this time to optimize technology to enhance our collective social health.Nicole Van Groningen, M.D., is an internal medicine physician at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Before the emergence of Covid-19, conventional wisdom held that the cure for loneliness was intentional disconnection from our phones and devices in favor of good, old-fashioned face time. But now that human congregation is decidedly at odds with the interests of public health, let’s view this as an opportunity to test if we can use technology to help us feel less alone.Video messaging is an obvious option that is within reach for most people, even for those with limited technical literacy. In a 2018 study of older adults, those who used video chat platforms such as Skype and FaceTime had almost half the estimated probability of depressive symptoms — a common byproduct of loneliness — as participants who used text-based communication. The researchers attributed the lower depression rates to the enhanced social and emotional connectedness that video messaging provides.If video messaging isn’t feasible, even vocal communication is preferable to text or email. A study of preteen girls found that after experiencing a stressful event, girls who heard their mothers’ voices experienced a surge in the bonding-hormone oxytocin and a drop in cortisol, a stress hormone. These effects were not observed in girls who were allowed to interact with their mothers only through instant messaging.Social media, though previously linked to a higher rate of loneliness and associated depressive symptoms among its users, may prove effective in combatting loneliness if used wisely. Recent research suggests that how people interact with social media is more important than how much they do. Instead of scrolling through feeds and offering likes, users who share personal thoughts through direct messaging or comments may foster goodwill and kinship in both themselves and their recipients. As the coronavirus spreads exponentially across the United States, widespread social distancing is thought to be our best weapon against rampant transmission. Minimizing human contact can slow the rate of spread — flattening the curve — and avoid a surge of sick patients that would strain our health care system to a point where it cannot effectively care for them. State and local governments have imposed increasingly severe restrictions on the movement of Americans, and have ordered roughly 1 in 5 Americans to stay home.The conundrum is that these mandates — prudent and necessary as they are — are overlaid against the backdrop of an epidemic of loneliness in the U.S. Avoiding events, parties, cafes, and even family gatherings is likely to increase social isolation among millions of Americans who already describe themselves as lonely. If the ultimate goal is holistic public wellness, we cannot ignore the unintended consequences of social distancing on other metrics of health.In some ways, social distancing began well before the current coronavirus outbreak. From 1985 to 2009, the average size of an American’s social network, defined by number of confidants, declined by more than one-third. In a recent survey of 10,000 people, about 63% of men and 58% of women qualify as lonely. Considering the tight link between social isolation and depression, it is no surprise that young people today are more depressed than their parents or grandparents.advertisementcenter_img Newsletters Sign up for First Opinion A weekly digest of our opinion column, with insight from industry experts. Privacy Policy Much of our collective loneliness has been attributed to our growing reliance on technology. Social networking apps, online shopping, and on-demand streaming offer opportunities to streamline our lives that seem appealing at first blush but have inexorably reduced the amount of meaningful interaction we have with each other. The great paradox of our hyper-connected digital world is that we are actually driving ourselves further apart.advertisement About the Author Reprints @NVanGroningenMD [email protected] By Nicole Van Groningen April 7, 2020 Reprints Please enter a valid email address.last_img read more

Education Ministry Embarks on Multi-Faceted Literacy Thrust

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Ministry of Education has embarked on a multi-faceted literacy thrust to raise the level of literacy of all children in Jamaica. Several initiatives were introduced in the past with varying degrees of success.Speaking with JIS News, Minister of Education, Andrew Holness said: “With the current focus on a new literacy thrust, and a myriad of supporting programmes, we are well on the way to achieving the target of 85 per cent of school children reading at or above grade 4 level by 2015.”He informed that based on the literacy test which is administered to grade 4 students, the percentage that achieve mastery has been improving, from 64 per cent in 2005, to 75 per cent in 2007.The new literacy thrust is one response to the 2004 Report of the Task Force on Educational Reform, which highlighted the underachievement of students, particularly those in non-traditional secondary schools, as well as the underachievement of boys.This literacy thrust is being spearheaded by the Education Transformation Team (ETT), an arm of the Ministry of Education, which was established to guide implementation of the Task Force recommendations.The ETT, in tackling the literacy challenge, has put in place a management structure comprising a National Literacy Co-ordinator and eight Regional Literacy Co-ordinators with responsibility for programme oversight and for stakeholders’ consultations. In addition, there are 50 Literacy Specialists who have been deployed to 212 of the most challenged schools.There are also School-based Literacy Co-ordinators or Reading Specialists in all schools. According to National Literacy Co-ordinator, Laurel Brent-Harris, “a significant amount of work has already been done in planning, raising awareness, and training literacy co-ordinators and specialists, whose role it is to give support to classroom teachers, and analyse the data which informs the development of customised programmes used to assist students with specific challenges.” The Ministry has designed a range of programmes to address the literacy needs of students from the primary through to the secondary level of the education system. “With the level of collaboration that exists within the Ministry of Education and the partnerships which are forged with the private and public sectors, it is expected that there will be a positive change in the literacy landscape that should see the achievement of the 2015 target,” Mrs. Brent-Harris said.

CU To Conduct Routine Maintenance On CU-South Levees May 5 To May 9

Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Contractors for the University of Colorado at Boulder will perform routine maintenance on the flood protection levee located on CU-South property next week between May 5 and May 9.The work will bring the berm up to elevations necessary to meet Federal Emergency Management Agency requirements based on the approved South Boulder Creek hydrology study conducted by the City of Boulder. Adding additional height to portions of the levee will better protect Boulder residents located in the South Boulder Creek West Valley Overflow area of the city.According to Acting Vice Chancellor for Administration Jeff Lipton, CU will import and place fill dirt at different locations on the levee – including a small portion of its east section – raising its elevation to meet FEMA requirements.”CU staff has met with county staff to discuss these plans, and the county has concurred with CU that this constitutes routine maintenance work and does not fall within the temporary South Boulder Creek moratorium area,” said Lipton. “Residents can be assured this is basic flood mitigation maintenance work that will make the levee functional and fulfill FEMA requirements. The university has no plans at this time to develop CU-South.”Lipton said the work is expected to take four-to-five days to perform. During that time, access to CU-South will be limited in order to maintain public safety. There also will be some light truck traffic, with trucks entering the area from the west, off Highway 93.
