With longterm strategy UN protects civilians in Gaza from threat of unexploded

“The full extent of contamination by ERW in Gaza is unknown,” said the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in a news release issued yesterday, which added that although a large number of ERW was cleared shortly after the 2014 conflict by both official and unofficial bodies, suspected remnants remain hidden throughout Gaza, either among the rubble of destroyed structures or buried below the surface. In that regard, as part of a sustainable strategy to mitigate risks, the UN Mine Action Service (UNMAS) has focused on protection measures to include removing suspected ERW and providing a holistic risk mitigation framework in support of reconstruction and development efforts.These measures comprised four mutually-reinforcing components, beginning with site-specific ERW risk assessments to determine the hazards and the level of risk.“Based on these assessments, ERW risk awareness training is then provided to construction workers. UNMAS monitors ongoing work activities to ensure compliance with recommended measures. The final component is responsive technical support from an Explosive Ordnance Disposal expert whenever an item is suspected to be an ERW. These activities are complemented by providing ERW risk education to communities at risk in order to reduce the number of accidents,” OCHA’s statement explained.Following the end of hostilities in 2014, UNMAS supported the UN Development Programme’s (UNDP) Rubble Removal project for the safe extraction and processing of more than one million tons of debris. By end-July 2016, UNMAS had provided 81 risk assessments to support UNDP-coordinated reconstruction efforts by surveying 405,000m2 of land, including 41 km of roadways. Additionally, ERW risk awareness training has been provided to 211 workers with risk education sessions reaching nearly 39,000 people in communities at risk, including boys and girls.In parallel, UNMAS continued to provide the Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), other UN agencies and non-governmental partners with leadership and expert technical expertise in managing explosive hazards while developing contingency plans to strengthen emergency preparedness.According to OCHA, “the ERW risk mitigation measures deployed in Gaza constitute a responsible and sustainable response to identify and remove ERW, and ultimately protect the lives of civilians.”Since the end of hostilities in August 2014, 17 people had been killed and 100 more injured by ERW, including 46 children. read more

BlackBerry founder Balsillie dumps his entire stake in the company

first_imgIf former co-CEO Jim Balsillie is smiling right now, it’s not because he’s holding a brand new BlackBerry 10 device — it’s because he recently sold off millions of shares of company stock, pocketing a ton of cash. Just how much did Balsillie dump? Every single share he ever held, which was somewhere around 26.8 million in total (as of December 2011).The stock has been trading at around $14 to $15 per share, so that’s not a bad sack of loot to haul away from a business that Balsillie seems to be losing faith in . Balsillie may still have confidence in The Company Formerly Known as RIM, but the divestment certainly doesn’t imply as much. Could it be that he finally admitted to himself that the company has finally run out of steam?That’s certainly been the prevailing sentiment in the tech industry for quite some time. The underwhelming public response to the BlackBerry PlayBook and the oft-delayed launch of BlackBerry 10 punctuate a spate of disappointments from the once-dominant smartphone maker. Even the recent launch of the Z10 has done little to restore confidence, though there’s definitely more excitement about the BlackBerry 10 flagship than there was about anything RIM launched in 2012.It’s been a tough couple of years for the Waterloo, Ontario company. Balsillie’s decision to cut the financial cord and purge BlackBerry stock from his portfolio isn’t going to sit well with other investors. Once again it will be up to BlackBerry CEO Thorstein Heins to staunch the bleeding and assure everyone that BlackBerry is back — and that the Z10 is just the beginning, not the end.last_img read more

An early picture of Powell taken from the American Anarchist documentary about him. Source: Facebook/AmericanAnarchistWriting in The Guardian in 2013, Powell said he was motivated to write to book because of “government-sanctioned violence”. He wrote that these reasons still persist to this day but that he now feels the book is “flawed”: Over the years, I have come to understand that the basic premise behind the Cookbook is profoundly flawed. The anger that motivated the writing of the Cookbook blinded me to the illogical notion that violence can be used to prevent violence.It’s understood that Powell died in July of last year but it has only now become widely known after his death was recorded in the credits of a new documentary about him entitled American Anarchist.Read: George Michael’s funeral takes place three months after his death on Christmas Day >Read: Martin McGuinness has died at the age of 66 > Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Scientists Are Making RoboBees

first_img This Robot Is Equal Parts Lawnmower and Snow BlowerWatch: Drone Captures Incredible View of Sheep on Colorado Peak Stay on target Bees are dying. We’ve been hearing about it for literally years. And while there’s been some progress in terms of conversation, an intrepid group of scientists aren’t holding their breath for a solution.The problem is that bees are what’s known as a keystone species. Like the keystone of an arched bridge, the entire rest of the structure of the ecosystem rely on them. Bees pollinate thousands of different plants — particularly crops. And without them, we’d need to spend trillions of dollars each year just to make sure we have enough food to eat.The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology in Japan are working on drones that could help take some of that pressure off of our bumbly friends. They wouldn’t be able to do all of the work themselves, but it’s a step.“TV programs about the pollination crisis, honey bee decline, and the latest robotics emotionally motived me,” chemist Eijiro Miyako told Gizmodo. “I thought we urgently needed to create something for these problems.”Miyako created a special adhesive gel that, when attached to animal hairs allows 2-inch remote-controlled drones to pick up and drop off pollen just like a bee. The team’s paper, published in the most recent issue of Chem, says that more research needs to be done (as always), but that this is a huge step in the right direction.The team says that their drones are still really hard to maneuver, which isn’t at all surprising, and they’ve only tested one type of flower so far. Given that there are 20,000 species of bees that services many, many more pollinating plants, we’ve got some time to go before we have a viable replacement for our black-and-yellow friends. And even then, each drone runs about $100. Replacing even a small portion of real bees with our artificial pollinators would be tremendously expensive, and is why it’s always better to address conservation and environmental problems before they become critical.last_img read more

Louis Armstrong To Warren Zevon 13 Music Memoirs You Should Be Reading

first_img Facebook Twitter 13 Music Memoirs You Should Read Right Now louis-armstrong-warren-zevon-13-music-memoirs-you-should-be-reading News Email Louis Armstrong To Warren Zevon: 13 Music Memoirs You Should Be Reading Suggested reading for every music fanatic … but you don’t have to take our word for it, dive in and see for yourself!Nate HertweckGRAMMYs Mar 9, 2018 – 10:23 am Life and art may take turns imitating each other, but a good music memoir successfully imitates both. Such is the case for this short list of quality books that take you inside the lives, careers, minds and hearts of a variety of music makers, from the iconic (Louis Armstrong and Loretta Lynn) to the explosive (Warren Zevon and Patty Schemel) to the crafty (Geoff Emerick and Annie Leibovitz). There is no shortage of first-hand accounts to tell the story of our rich music history for those willing to read or listen.In honor of National Reading Month, take a browse through these 13 captivating music memoirs — all books with stories of art and life told by the men and women who lived them.1. Louis Armstrong, Satchmo: My Life In New OrleansLong before making his influential recordings with the Hot Five and Hot Seven in the ’20s, popularizing jazz as uniquely American music in the ’30s and ’40s, and becoming a beloved icon in the ’50s and 60’s with television appearances and the mainstream appeal of “What A Wonderful World,” Louis Armstrong just wanted to play. Satchmo… is his frantic recounting of the first two decades of his life, which began in 1900 in New Orleans. In these formative years, Armstrong overcame economic and racial adversity, familial instability, and a city of violence while cutting his teeth at some of the roughest joints in town before heading to Chicago to launch one of the most important careers in all of music history: his own.2. Pauline Black, Black By DesignPauline Black had a front-row seat for the 2-Tone phenomenon of the late ’70s. Named for English record label 2 Tone Records, the era blended elements of ska and punk and launched acts like the Specials, the Beat, Madness, and Dexys Midnight Runners. As lead singer for the Selector, Black was the lone woman in the movement, sometimes called the Queen of British Ska. But her story goes back much farther, to a childhood during which she was given up for adoption by her Nigerian/Anglo-Jewish parents and raised by a white working-class family in 1950s London. Black By Design tells of Black’s journey toward becoming a famous musician while circling back to recount the touching story of her search to find her birth parents.3. David Byrne, How Music WorksPart memoir, part psychology thesis, part tech journal — David Byrne’s 2012 book, How Music Works, should be required reading for anyone interested in the history or future of music. In this collection of essays, Byrne comes at the concept of a music memoir from a different angle (stating in the acknowledgemnts, saying, “the ‘aging rocker bio’ is a crowded shelf”), aiming his sights at exploring the elements that combine, duplicate and combust in the process of music. From the anatomy of a music scene, with the ’70-era CBGB’s club as his cadaver set for dissection, to the implications of psychoacoustics and digital culture on our future, Byrne covers a lot of ground without seeming scattered. He also shines a light on the history of Talking Heads, with some especially illuminating sections on how the band’s style developed and evolved. With Byrne’s ability to express complex ideas in simple terms, it’s not impossible to imagine portions of How Music Works being integrated into college courses across many disciplines.4. Elvis Costello, Unfaithful Music & Disappearing InkAs angular and eclectic as his catalog, Elvis Costello’s 2015 memoir careens through history, bouncing around the singer’s spastic and varied career with the same clever phrasing and vivid imagery found in his songs. Much like the way Bob Dylan’s gold-standard memoir. Chronicles: Volume One, largely ignores a conventional chronological format, Costello opts for a needle-drop approach to his life, swooping in just long enough to capture brief slices of life. Compared to the economy of a great song, the sprawling format of prose writing — and of life in general — can be daunting, or as he admits, “life takes much longer than the average pop song.” In the end, Costello’s audiobook performance of the book earned him his 14th career GRAMMY nomination for Best Spoken Word Album for the 59th GRAMMY Awards, making the audio version of Unfaithful Music… (plus Vulture’s accompanying playlist) a must for the full experience. 5. Geoff Emerick, Here, There And Everywhere: My Life Recording The BeatlesProducer/engineer Geoff Emerick, who was just 15 years old when he began as an assistant engineer at the world famous Abbey Road Studios, enjoyed unmatched access to the Beatles’ recording sessions for most of their career, making his memoir on working with the greatest rock band there ever was a surreal read. Just as Emerick approaches the recording studio with a technical savoir faire and a keen eye toward experimentation, his writing sees the Fab Four and their musical innovations framed in proper respect to the technical innovations that went into their best albums. But Emerick’s perspective provides as much insight into the dynamic of tension in the band as it does their recording process, making Here, There and Everywhere… an honest and precious account of some of the most historic recording sessions of all time.6. Annie Leibovitz, American MusicDominant in her field, and uncanny in her ability, photographer Annie Leibovitz has spent nearly five decades capturing some of our culture’s most iconic images. In her 2003 photo book, American Music, Leibowitz traces the backroads of the Mississippi Delta, the alleys of New Orleans and backstage hallways of venues across the country to find the faces and places that paint the rich landscape of American music. The collection is rounded out by shots from the master’s archive of Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Lou Reed, Mary J. Blige, and more, with short essays contributed by Patti Smith, Rosanne Cash, Mos Def, Beck, Ryan Adams and Steve Earle, providing a little light reading to pair with Leibowitz’ breathtaking photographs.Kendrick Lamar To Katy Perry: Songs Inspired By Books7. Loretta Lynn, Coal Miner’s DaughterMuch like the song of the same name, Coal Miner’s Daughter is an honest telling of Loretta Lynn’s remarkable story from humble beginnings to country music superstardom. For a woman who came from real poverty, had little in the way of formal education, was married by age 13, became a grandmother by 29, and “never thought of ever leaving Butcher Holler,” her ascension to Nashville royalty status is fascinating. Lynn’s voice (with help of writer George Vecsey) sings onto the page, maintaining the same signature rural diction that lends authenticity, candor and power to her songs.8. RZA, The Tao Of WuFans of the seminal ’90s East Coast rap collective Wu-Tang Clan are no doubt familiar with RZA’s many talents as a producer, rapper, filmmaker, actor, and yes, author. His 2009 book, The Tao Of Wu, served as a follow-up to his first book, The Wu-Tang Manual, which is more of a farmer’s almanac filled with informative details on the group’s members, terminology, and influence. The sequel, however, zeroes in on RZA, going deeper into his personal philosophy, spirituality, and story. Examining everything from his signature production techniques to the significance of his 1993 acquittal of an attempted murder charge, The Tao Of Wu is RZA’s pursuit of wisdom, which he calls, “the cure for all sickness.”9. Patty Schemel, Hit So Hard: A MemoirIt can be tempting to glamorize the grunge scene and lifestyle in retrospect of early-90’s Seattle because of the incredible bands and landmark albums it produced, but the truth is much darker. Patty Schemel’s stellar memoir, Hit So Hard, provides a candid first-hand account of the last real movement in rock and roll from a unique vantage point. As the drummer for the band Hole, Schemel lived with the band’s frontwoman Courtney Love and late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. But her story — and her memoir — covers so much more than her experience with the more famous denizens of the stories scene. From a childhood interrupted by her parents’ divorce, to her struggle to understand her own sexuality and finding refuge in playing the drums, to witnessing and experiencing addiction on a tragic scale and experiencing the long road to recovery, Schemel emerges as an unlikely — and unsung —hero.10. Patti Smith, Just KidsPatti Smith’s voice expressed as prose can be every bit as raw and electrifying as the one you hear in her music. Her 2010 memoir documenting her relationship with artist and photographer Robert Mapplethorpe has become almost a companion piece in spirit to the aforementioned Dylan memoir, and every bit as lasting thanks to the story’s devoted teller. Smith and Mapplethorpe enjoyed a connection too intrinsic for fantasy, and in Just Kids Smith puts their story of youth and adventure in the perfect frame. 11. Todd Snider, I Never Met A Story I Didn’t Like: Mostly True Tall TalesWritten by the man Rolling Stone affectionately called “a lowlife Randy Newman,” Todd Snider’s I Never Met A Story I Didn’t Like: Mostly True Tales is not your conventional music memoir. But then again, Snider is not your conventional musician. Full of wit, soul and his own cocktail of self-deprecating braggadocio, Snider has become the people’s mayor of East Nashville, churning out sharp, intellectual country, everyman folk, and carefree rock and roll since his 1994 debut, Songs For The Daily Planet.  It’s an ethos he keeps alive to this day, both with his latest solo effort —  2016’s Eastside Bulldog — and also his jam-rock supergroup Hard Working Americans. Like the wildly entertaining between-song monologues Snider’s live shows have become known for, I Never Met A Story … is a collection of hilarious — if not apocryphal — anecdotes from Snider’s many years spent in bar bands, beat-up vans, and backstages across the country.12. Victor Wooten, The Music LessonWant to go on a trip? Virtuoso bassist and bandleader Victor Wooten’s The Music Lesson takes the reader on a ride too outrageous to be believed, yet too personal and transcendent to be ignored. Even Wooten admits early in book that he didn’t quite believe what he learned in this most unconventional lesson, but the story that follows sees an impossibly eccentric stranger-turned-mentor showing Wooten the intangibles of music: those found in the heart and the spirit and the gut. Wooten’s book is a delightful read for the absolute beginner and consummate pro alike.13. Crystal Zevon, I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead: The Dirty Life And Times Of Warren ZevonMany geniuses are troubled. Warren Zevon’s life and death were filled with struggle and hardship punctuated by moments of pure brilliance. I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead … was written and compiled by Zevon’s former wife Crystal Zevon, and trades heavily in cringe-worthy accounts of the couples tumultuous personal life sprinkled with romantic nostalgia from the ’70s L.A. rock scene. The book also contains many of Warren Zevon’s personal journal entries, providing a stark image of the man revered by so many of his contemporaries and songwriting peers for the gorgeous and irreverent songs he wrote right up through his struggle with cancer and tragic death in 2003. I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead … is a hard read on many fronts, and afterward you may like the man and some of his actions a lot less, but you’ll like the music and his spirit a lot more.Getting The Latest Music News Just Got Easier.

Texas Senate School Safety Committee Recommends Focusing on Mental Health Avoids Gun

first_img Share Rachel Zein for The Texas TribuneLeft to right: State Sens. Kelly Hancock, R-North Richland Hills, Eddie Lucio Jr., D-Brownville, and John Whitmire, D-Houston, at the second day of hearings held by the Senate Select Committee on Violence in Schools and School Security on June 12, 2018.A special Texas Senate committee devoted to fighting school violence has recommended improving mental health resources for students and increasing funding for a program that arms some members of school staff, but shied away from any measures aiming to limit access to guns.Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, a Republican, formed the Senate Select Committee on Violence in Schools and School Security following the mass shooting at Santa Fe High School south of Houston. Committee members heard testimony during four meetings in June and July on ways to improve school safety infrastructure, address mental health issues among students and consider controversial “red flag” policies that would take guns away from those deemed a risk to others.Several of the committee’s recommendations focused on “hardening” schools, adding funding for metal detectors and other security apparatuses on campuses. The committee also recommended that the state explore increasing financing for school marshal programs, which allow certified staffers to have access to firearms in schools. During its public hearings, committee members heard testimony that marshal programs can strain school budgets, since they require training and lockboxes for guns. The committee hopes to alleviate that strain with state funds, though it didn’t give specific dollar amounts for any of its recommendations.The recommendations were in line with Republican Gov. Greg Abbott‘s proposal to expand the school marshal program, included in a 44-page school safety action plan he released soon after the Santa Fe shooting.School marshal programs are one of two ways the state allows schools to arm teachers. School districts can also allocate “guardians” who can carry firearms in schools without a minimum amount of training. The committee recommended considering a minimum training requirement for school guardians.A proposal raised by state Sen. Don Huffines, R-Dallas, during the committee’s June 12 meeting to arm school staff with rifles was not in the recommendations.Committee members also pushed for increased mental health resources for students, including expanding mental health first aid training for school staff who interact with students and videoconferencing psychiatric help to students who wouldn’t otherwise have access to mental health professionals.Testimony from counselors and school social workers showed a pattern of schools using counselors for administrative work. Committee members recommended considering legislation that would enumerate counselor duties. They also proposed looking into ways to make counselors more accessible to students, particularly in rural areas with fewer school personnel.Stephanie Rubin, CEO of advocacy and research group Texans Care for Children, lauded the focus on mental health care, but expressed concern at the report’s lack of specific methods to implement its recommendations. In a statement released soon after the report, Rubin said the Legislature will still have to work out several of the details in the upcoming session in 2019 for any substantive change to occur.“We hope state leaders build on these efforts and take real action, with meaningful increases in state funding, to support student mental health,” the statement said.The committee did not recommend the implementation of “red flag” laws, which Abbott proposed in his school safety recommendations but Patrick has fiercely challenged. Instead, members proposed clarifying legislation on whether people convicted of domestic violence can own firearms to begin with and on returning guns to people who have been detained but declared not to be a risk to themselves or others.That drew a rebuke from Mike Collier, the Democrat who is challenging Patrick for lieutenant governor.“Red flag laws work, and the only language in this report regarding red flag laws is the recommendation to clarify current statutes,” Collier said in a statement.last_img read more

December 31 2004 The Nudging Space Arcology is a

first_imgDecember 31, 2004The Nudging Space Arcology is a variation of Soleri’s earlier design ‘Two Suns’. The important design element here is the ‘Apsedra’ which combines two architectural forms, the ‘Apse’ and the ‘Excedra’. One way to visualize this is to picture a halved artichoke whose upper third has been sliced off and it’s choke removed. Its blades are separated but still remain attached to the lower center.The Nudging Space Arcology is a variation of Soleri’s earlier design ‘Two Suns’. The important design element here is the ‘Apsedra’ which combines two architectural forms, the ‘Apse’ and the ‘Excedra’. One way to visualize this is to picture a halved artichoke whose upper third has been sliced off and it’s choke removed. Its blades are separated but still remain attached to the lower center. The psychosomatic side is revealed by the influence the curved space has on our relationship with things and people. The Apsedra encourages conviviality by offering a focusing convergence (its center of centers) where awareness and dialoging are enhanced.“In nature, as an organism evolves it increases in complexity and it also becomes a more compact or miniaturized system. Similarly a city should function as a living system. Arcology, architecture and ecology as one integral process, is capable of demonstrating positive response to the many problems of urban civilization, population, pollution, energy and natural resource depletion, food scarcity and quality of life.

S8+ launch also gave us the first official glimpse of Bixby the company’s very own voice-assistant powered by Artificial intelligence which will be part of these two phones Bixby is getting its own dedicated button on the Samsung Galaxy S8 S8+ and during the launch event there was a demonstration of how exactly this voice-assistant will work Bixby will be integrated with native apps on the Samsung phones like Camera Contacts Gallery Message and Settings So you’ll be able to call up Bixby to send message to a contact or even send a photo via the messaging app It will work with voice touch and text commands So you can say ‘Hey Bixby do this’ or just touch to activate Bixby via the button or rely on text commands inside the Bixby interface Now Bixby also comes with image recognition technology meaning it will be able to do searches via the camera A user could open up the camera scan an object and ask Bixby to locate that product online Or Bixby could scan a location like say a restaurant and show up relevant results around this place like reviews menu etc Bixby will have also ‘contextual awareness’ and can show information in the form of cards Of course this is nothing new Google Now has been displaying cards for quite sometime now Bixby it seems will be able to understand incomplete commands as well For instance in the demo Samsung showed that when Bixby is triggered say when you are hunting for directions in a map and you can say ‘Bixby send this to a contact’ the assistant can figure out ‘this’ refers to the directions or whatever else you might be doing in a particular app Finally Bixby is relies on machine learning to improve over time like other voice-assistants in the market So the more you use it the more accurate Bixby gets over time Also read: Samsung Galaxy S8 S8+: Release date is April 21 price is $724 and above Of course for Bixby a lot of these capabilities will depend on how soon third-party app developers decide to start working with the assistant The other issue is Samsung hasn’t confirmed if the Bixby assistant will be rolled out to other phones That could have a big impact in how developers decide For starters last year’s hit Galaxy S7 S7 edge phones have the Google Assistant running on them with the Android Nougat It is unclear if Samsung will keep this feature limited to the high-end smartphones In that case the number of users for Bixby gets limited instantly The other challenge for Bixby will be in proving that it is not just another voice-assistant in the market It will have to become indispensable for Samsung Galaxy S8 users Right now without the third-party app support it doesn’t look like this Then some of the features aren’t exactly new Google has been talking about ‘contextual awareness’ around assistant for sometime now Google Now on Tap was in fact designed around this whole idea of ‘contextual awareness’ and eventually it’s gotten integrated into the Google Assistant Google Now already
