first_imgIn this Adobe Premiere Pro tutorial, you’ll discover a handy trick for splitting two audio inputs that were married as a stereo pair in camera.If you’re recording two audio inputs to camera they may come into Premiere Pro as a single stereo track (such as 2 separate audio mics for your talent).  This can be entirely frustrating.  You need to break these married audio tracks into dual mono, but how?In this post, we’ll tackle how to convert an audio file into dual mono after it has already been imported into your Premiere Pro project.  Also, you’ll learn how to make it a default behavior to bring all stereo tracks in as dual mono in Premiere.However, a word of caution:  because of the way Premiere Pro is set up, once you make a change to your preferences or a clip in your project panel, generally speaking it won’t update in your timeline. So, if you already have clips in your timeline and you want to convert them to dual mono this isn’t the way to do it!  For that you will probably have to use a separate program such as Adobe Audition (a more time consuming process).Splitting Stereo into Dual MonoFirst step – you need to right click on the clip in the PROJECT panel.This will bring you to a menu.  As shown above you select Modify>Audio Channels.This brings up the Modify Clip box.  Go to the preset tab and change it from ‘Use File’ to ‘Mono’.Once you’ve selected this you will see that the output mapping for the 2 audio channels has changed to the following.  The Channel Format is now Mono and the stereo audio is now dual mono.I get the following warning dialogue box if I have already used the clip in a sequence in my project:This tells us that clips already in the timeline will not be changed.  This may seem annoying, but in reality the fact that clips are not updated means that you will not cause yourself potential problems every time you make a modification.  This could potentially screw up previously made edits in your timeline.As you can see, once the clip has been re-mapped in the Project Panel and added to a new sequence the audio is mapped as dual mono:Dual Mono as Default Behavior in PremiereOne last question I also get asked is if there is a way to make this the default behaviour in Premiere Pro.  In other words, can you make it so that every time you bring in a clip with stereo audio into Premiere it will be mapped to dual mono by default without having to do the process above?Well, the answer is ‘yes’ and it’s done through your preferences.Select your preference as follows:PC = Edit>Preferences>AudioMac = Premiere Pro>Preferences>AudioThen, in the middle of the panel you will fine the ‘Default Audio Tracks’ section and simply drop down the options beside ‘Stereo Media‘ and change it from ‘Use File‘ to ‘Mono‘.Preferences for Premiere audio filesNow, the default behavior is for Premiere Pro to treat stereo clips as dual mono.  Save yourself time (and headaches) with this handy Premiere Pro feature.last_img read more

first_imgDaniel Savage’s latest short film showcases fluid animation with professional illustration.Helium HarveyInstead of going to animation school, animator and part-time educator Daniel Savage decided to make an animated short called Helium Harvey. Helium Harvey is a “Disney-like” short that features a little boy who inhaled too much helium. The project is super high end and Savage was so kind as to give us a behind the scenes look at how he made the film. So if you haven’t seen Helium Harvey, here is the short film:Savage was able to raise funding for the film by doing freelance work. He personally recommends that anyone looking to make a film as extensive as Helium Harvey take it one month at a time and spread out the work, to avoid being overwhelmed. Behind the ScenesDaniel used his expert skill in illustration and knowledge of the Creative Cloud to create the film. The following behind the scenes video gives us a glimpse into Daniel Savage’s process. Recording the MusicOne of the reason’s Helium Harvey is so successful is because it has a custom orchestral score underneath. In this video posted by Savage we take a look at the recording session. Notice how many people went into creating the well-rounded soundtrack.Helium Harvey was first posted on Daniel Savage’s blog. Thanks for sharing Daniel!

first_imgPriyanka Chopra, who has managed to pull off different looks in her over decade-long movie career, has sported a bald look for her forthcoming film “Mary Kom”. The actress, who didn’t actually shave off her head, says she may consider going bald if an entire film requires her to do so.For “Mary Kom”, which releases Sep 5, the requirement was only for a scene.”It was just about one scene in ‘Mary Kom’, so it was not required for me to go bald. Then who would have shot the rest of the film? But if a film requires for me to go bald entirely, maybe I will do it. But just for one or two scenes, I can’t go bald,” Priyanka said here.She has sported a bald look for her forthcoming film Mary Kom.”Mary Kom” is a biopic on boxing champion M.C. Mary Kom, who fought all odds to pursue her passion.Talking about the film, which marks the directorial debut of Omung Kumar, Priyanka said: “When Omung came me to me with this film, I was quite sure I want to do it. I knew Omung for many years and besides this film was being made (co-produced) by Sanjay Leela Bhansali.”There was a comfort zone and Omung and Sanjay gave me confidence.

first_imgWorld soccer’s governing body FIFA was under fire on Monday for winding up its anti-racism task force with former presidential candidate Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein of Jordan describing the move as worrying and shameful.FIFA secretary general Fatma Samoura confirmed the decision when she spoke to the Soccerex conference in Manchester, saying the task force had a “very specific mandate”.”We will turn its work into a strong programme of zero tolerance policy towards discrimination of any kind, including violation of human rights,” she said. “We can live with perception (created by disbanding the task force) but we are taking very firm action.” (Also read: Imagination and lies, says Gianni Infantino of UEFA election link)However, Prince Ali, a former FIFA executive committee member who has twice run for the presidency, said that “the notion that the current FIFA leadership believes that the task force’s recommendations have been implemented is shameful.”He added that the announcement was “incredibly worrying”.”Never has the need to combat racism and racial discrimination been more evident than it is in the world we live in today,” Prince Ali said in a statement.”It is not something that any governing body with any semblance of responsibility can down play or deny. “The reality, as with many programs within FIFA, is that the task force was never given real support since its conception and its role was more about FIFA’s image than actually tackling the issues.”The decision emerged on Friday when Osasu Obayiuwana, a Nigerian broadcaster and lawyer who was a member of the panel, published on Twitter a letter he received from FIFA announcing the end of the task force. advertisementIt said the task force had achieved the goals which were set out for it when it was created under the leadership of disgraced former FIFA president Sepp Blatter in 2013.The task force’s original chairman, Jeffrey Webb, was among high-ranking soccer officials arrested in Zurich in May last year.Webb has since pleaded guilty in the United States to offences linked to racketeering, fraud and money-laundering.He was one of 42 soccer officials and entities indicted last year, plunging FIFA into its worst ever crisis. (Also read: FIFA president Gianni Infantino cleared of wrongdoing in ethics probe)Webb was replaced as head of the task force by Constant Omary, a FIFA Council member from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Britain’s Kick It Out anti-racism group said it was perplexed by FIFA’s decision, especially as the move came less than two years before the World Cup in Russia, a country it said was “notorious for racism and abusive activities towards minorities”.It said football should seek to lead the way in combating violence, prejudice and hate and that organisations fighting racism would be “deeply disheartened to hear news of the disbandment, as they look to FIFA for leadership.”last_img read more

first_imgLee Clark: Newcastle need Almiron goal; Noble tribute; Souness right on Man Utdby Lee Clarka month agoSend to a friendShare the loveWithout being disrespectful to Brighton, because every team you come up against in the Premier League are tough opponents, but if Newcastle are playing teams in the same situation as themselves at St. James’ Park, you expect them to be on the front foot, be positive and taking the game on.I think Steve Bruce would have wanted his team to play that way. He certainly wouldn’t have wanted the 71 per cent possession to 29 per cent possession ratio in favour of the away team. In the first-half Brighton were totally dominant and in saying that if you look over the course of the game Newcastle probably had as many clear cut chances as Brighton.The chance that Miguel Almiron had is one that a striker with confidence puts down the side of the goalkeeper into the corner of the goal. Instead he just fired it straight down the goalkeeper’s throat. That’s a player who is trying desperately hard to break this goalscoring duck. He’s got such a brilliant work ethic for the team, the reports you get from the training ground is that he works ever so hard on the pitch and I think everybody that is associated with the club are willing Almiron on to get this goal because I think if he gets the first one, his confidence levels will rise and he’ll go on a bit of a run.I know Brighton had their own chances and they were the dominant team. So I think all in all it was a disappointing performance and a disappointing weekend because I think Steve Bruce and his staff were probably expecting three points. The positive thing out of it is that they haven’t lost the game, they’ve kept the clean sheet that will help the defenders and the goalkeeper and then obviously they’ve got a point from a performance that probably didn’t warrant it. The problem they’ve got now is they’ve got extremely tough league games in the next three. They’ve got to start to picking up points because it’s getting really tight at the bottom there in terms of there being five or six teams where one or two wins can get you out of the relegation zone and on the other hand two or three losses puts you right in there and gives you confidence issues.DELIGHTED FOR ANDY, BUT…I was absolutely delighted to see Andy Carroll back in Newcastle colours, but the problem we’ve got is everyone is hanging their hopes on him because of the season we’ve had. It’s a big call because of his injury problems, he’s not going to be straight into the firing line in terms of starting games. It’s going to have to be a gradual process with Andy working up his match fitness. He got 10-15 minutes against Brighton and I think Steve will be trying to use him from the bench and maybe giving him a little bit longer with each appearance, then seeing how long it will take before he believes he is ready to start. But Andy has obviously lifted the mood around the club and around the city. All I’d warn is that there’s a lot of pressure on him because everyone is hanging their hopes on him to be the one that turns things around for the club.HUDDERSFIELDI’ve seen the two games since Danny Cowley took over and I totally agree with his sentiments from what he said after those games: it’s a club that has forgot how to win. It’s been that long. It’s a group of players, I think he used the words, that play the scoreboard rather than the game, so even when they go ahead they are worrying about getting pegged back, and if they get overtaken it seems to effect their mentality and confidence. I thought for an hour they did great against West Bromwich Albion, it’s always a tough place to go the Hawthorns. But then as soon as West Brom got back to 2-2 there looked like there’d be only one winner and that ended up being the case.Danny has come out and said he feels the team isn’t fit enough to play the way he wants to play for 94, 95 minutes. It’s a really tough period for the club. The manager is trying to get his ideas across, it’s not going to happen overnight, especially if he wants to change so many things. Reports stated that ten days leading up to the game Danny gave the players so much information, so you could worry about it being overload for them. You just hope that they can get this first win sooner rather than later because the longer it goes on the longer it will just frighten the life out of everyone in terms of fans, players, staff, because everyone starts losing their confidence and wondering where the next result is coming from.SOUNESS WAS RIGHT ABOUT MAN UTDI think there is a good chance that it could be the worst ever Manchester United squad in the Premier League era without a doubt. I was really disappointed with their performance against West Ham United. The three guys in the Sky Sports studio – Graeme Souness, Roy Keane and Jose Mourinho – know a hell of a lot about winning major trophies and what it takes, and they were quite scathing and rightly so on the performance level that Man Utd delivered against West Ham. I thought it was quite inept, quite flat to be honest. All you expect from a Man Utd team, even in the games that they’ve lost, you expect them to be up and at you, creating numerous chances, playing with lots of a tempo, lots of speed, hitting you on the break, you’re always worried even when you’re in front that they can come back and hurt you because of their pace. They just look like a run of the mill Premier League team at the moment. People are talking about them breaking into the top-four, I would say that you’ve got to worry about them getting into the top-six at this moment in time, never mind the top-four, because I think their performance levels are quite average at best. NOBLE RIGHT WHERE HE WANTS TO BEThe answer to Mark Noble joining a bigger club is tough when you’re playing for the club that you love and support and you’re playing every week and you’re classed as one of the main men.He’s been a terrific ambassador for West Ham. You can see he loves the club. When they’ve had the times of turmoil and disappointment, he’s always been the one that steps up and comes to the fore, whether that has to be communicating with the fans or on the pitch.He’s the leader for those West Ham supporters and their fans – and the group of players who are in the dressing room would understand what the club means to play for West Ham because of Mark Noble. Am I surprised he hasn’t been in the England set-up? Yeah I probably am. But in terms of playing for a big club, I don’t think he’d be too bothered or interested in that. He’s living his dream so I don’t think moving anywhere else would’ve been of any interest to him. TagsTransfersOpinionAbout the authorLee ClarkShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgThe province has completed its review of three applications for surface coal exploration and mining in the Sydney coalfield, and its review of three proposals to develop the Donkin subsea coal resource. “We are excited about the economic, environmental and social benefits that can come from these projects,” said Minister of Natural Resources Richard Hurlburt. “Where appropriate, we hope to extract the coal for sale at current market value, which would give Cape Breton a significant economic benefit, a source of employment, and provide more economical resources to users who now have to import it from as far away as South America.” A special lease for coal at the former Prince Mine site at Point Aconi was approved for Pioneer Coal Limited on April 14. The project has been registered for environmental assessment, and is under review by the Department of Environment and Labour. Approval was given on June 2 to issue Coastal Construction and Excavating Limited an exploration licence to explore an area near the Prince Mine Road, Cape Breton Regional Municipality, subject to landowner consent. The licence area is about 25 per cent of the resource block outlined in the original call for proposals. Thomas Brogan and Sons Construction Ltd. was unsuccessful in obtaining mineral rights for the Birch Grove resource block. A fourth application for a lease for surface coal resources in the Broughton coal block is under review. Recommendations of the review committee regarding proposals to develop the Donkin subsea coal resource are under final consideration and a decision is expected in early July. There are an estimated seven- to eight-million tonnes of coal in Cape Breton that could be mined by small surface operations. This could have a market value of between $300 million and $500 million, could generate up to 100 direct jobs and more than 200 indirect jobs. A special exploratory licence permits a company to determine the presence of coal, the quality of the coal and the economic viability of a potential project. It does not allow for development. Mineral leases issued by the Department of Natural Resources provide control of the resource to the successful applicant but provide no permission for operation of a mine. All applicants must successfully complete the environmental assessment and industrial approval process through the Department of Environment and Labour, and receive landowner approval before they can begin mine development. This ensures that any mining operation will protect water courses, water supply, wetlands, and wildlife habitats. The surface coal mining blocks within the Sydney coalfield are currently the subject of a cumulative environmental effects study by the Department of Environmental and Labour. Results are expected by the end of the summer. When extraction of coal is completed, the lease holder is required to restore the site to a condition that is environmentally acceptable and that addresses local interests. A good example of the community benefits from surface mining is in Stellarton, the site of the Pioneer Coal Limited mine, which employs 70 persons. Mining operations are expected to be completed by 2011, and the lease holder and the community have agreed that the site will be reclaimed in a way that will allow the community to meet its land-use planning objectives. The plans include converting the land — which had been severely compromised by historical mining — for use as parkland, sports facilities, and residential and industrial properties.last_img read more

A new student trustee hopes to use her position to educate others about Indigenous culture.Ashley Cattrysse, a Grade 12 student at Waterford District High School, has been named indigenous student trustee for the Grand Erie District School Board.“I thought it would be a good idea to take the position because I have two younger brothers and I want to give them a chance to learn about their culture,” Cattrysse said on Monday afternoon.Her goal is to take what people are interested in and educate them in the Indigenous background of those interests. As an example, she explains that when gym classes play lacrosse students could be taught about where the sport originated.Cattrysse is also interested in art and plans on suggesting Indigenous art history as a subject in pre-existing art classes.The student trustees attend board meetings and provide a voice for the students they represent.Cattrysse hopes other students will feel comfortable enough to approach her with ideas she can then take to the GEDSB meetings.“I have noticed a lot of avoidance of Native history and the problems they faced. I had a project on residential schools and none of the other students knew what that was. I don’t think it’s being taught as much as it should be,” Cattrysse said while sitting in the cafeteria at WDHS.She plans on starting small with changes in her own school, with the goal of other GEDSB schools following the example.Cattrysse heard about the trustee position from her French teacher, who told her it would be a good opportunity.She is just the second student appointed as Indigenous student trustee with the GEDSB. The post was created in 2018.There are two other student trustees within the school board, one represents the north half of the board and the other represents the south.Student trustees are in the positions for the school year, usually starting in September.astaylor@postmedia.com read more

Veteran prosecutor Detlev Mehlis told a news conference at UN Headquarters in New York that he would leave tomorrow for the Lebanese capital, Beirut, with a small team that would review the evidence and information collected by previous panels since the 14 February assault.Later, the team would expand to include investigators from 25 to 40 countries, he said, and, in answer to a question about reported tampering with evidence, he said he was “cautiously optimistic” that the team could draw the correct conclusions.His investigation would be “classic, criminal, prosecutorial,” compared to the earlier review by Irish Deputy Police Commissioner Peter Fitzgerald, and since the results would be turned over to the Lebanese Government, it would follow that country’s code of criminal procedure, Mr. Mehlis said.According to the Security Council’s 7 April resolution governing the work of the International Independent Investigation Commission, the panel would have to complete its work within three months of becoming operational and could get a three-month extension, if Secretary-General Kofi Annan thought it necessary. read more

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email WASHINGTON – The U.S. economy showed in April that it’s healthier than many had feared, adding a solid 165,000 jobs and driving the unemployment rate down a notch to a four-year low of 7.5 per cent.Not only that, but many more people were hired in February and March than previously thought, the Labor Department said Friday.The job gains came despite a global slowdown, Social Security tax increases and federal spending cuts that some had feared would be a drag on the economy.The stock market soared on the news, with the Dow closing up 142 points, or nearly 1 per cent, after briefly breaking 15,000 for the first time in history.Coming after a poor jobs report for March, the figures helped ease fears that U.S. hiring might be slumping this spring for a fourth straight year.“All things considered, 165,000 isn’t the biggest monthly gain in payrolls you’ll ever see, but it’s enough to assuage concerns that the economy had stalled again,” said Paul Ashworth, an economist at Capital Economics.The Labor Department revised upward its estimate of job gains in February and March by a combined 114,000. It now says employers added 332,000 jobs in February and 138,000 in March.The economy has created an average of 208,000 jobs a month from November through April — well above the monthly average of 138,000 for the previous six months.The job market is benefiting from a resurgent housing market, rising consumer confidence and the Federal Reserve’s stimulus actions, which have helped lower borrowing costs and lift the stock market.The unemployment rate edged down from 7.6 per cent in March and has fallen 0.4 percentage point since the start of the year, though it remains high. The Fed has said it plans to keep short-term interest rates at record lows at least until unemployment falls to 6.5 per cent.One cautionary note in the employment report: Most of the biggest job gains were in lower-paying fields, such as hotels and restaurants, which added 45,000 jobs, and retail, which added 29,000. Temporary-help firms gained 31,000 positions.By contrast, construction companies and governments cut jobs. Manufacturing employment was flat.Some higher-paying sectors added workers. Professional and technical services, which include accounting, engineering and architecture, added 23,000 jobs. Education and health services gained 44,000.Average hourly pay rose, but the average workweek for private-sector employees dipped 0.2 hour to 34.4 hours. That meant average weekly paychecks declined.But over the past year, total pay after adjusting for inflation is up a healthy 2.1 per cent, economists said. That should help boost consumer spending in coming months.The job growth is occurring while the U.S. economy is growing modestly but steadily. It grew at a 2.5 per cent annual rate in the January-March quarter, fueled by the strongest consumer spending in two years.The housing recovery is helping drive more hiring. Rising home sales and construction create jobs and increase spending on furniture, landscaping and other services.One company that has benefited is SolarCity, based in San Mateo, Calif. Rising home building has helped increase demand for the solar-power systems the company installs in homes and businesses.CEO Lyndon Rive said SolarCity added 177 jobs in April and will welcome its 3,000th employee Monday. It is hiring engineers, installers and administrative support staff and still has 400 openings.Consumers have been spending more even though their take-home pay was shrunk this year by a Social Security tax increase. On top of that, the economy has been under pressure from the across-the-board government spending cuts that began taking effect March 1. And some small and midsize companies are concerned about new requirements under the federal health care law.Americans’ confidence in the economy jumped last month, lifted by a brighter outlook for hiring and expectations for higher pay, according to the Conference Board, a research group. Cheaper gasoline, the booming stock market and rising home values are also no doubt making people more confident.Home prices rose 9.3 per cent in February compared with a year ago, the most in nearly seven years, according to the Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller 20-city index.Still, prices nationwide remain about 30 per cent below their peak during the housing bubble in 2006. They’re back only to where they were in 2003.Yet the global economy, by contrast, is slowing. The European Union warned Friday, for example, that the 17 countries that use the euro will shrink by a collective 0.4 per cent this year. And unemployment in the eurozone is expected to hit an average of 12.2 per cent. In Greece and Spain, it is forecast to reach 27 per cent.In April, more Americans said they had part-time jobs even though they wanted full-time work. That figure rose 278,000 to 7.9 million, reversing a steep drop the previous month.Some economists worry that restaurants, retailers and other companies are hiring more part-timers in preparation for the start of health care reform. Companies with more than 50 full-time employees in 2013 will be required to provide health insurance to their full-time staff next year.The revisions to the March and February figures were unusually large. Retailers, restaurants and hotels added 48,000 more jobs in February than previously reported. They accounted for three-quarters of that month’s revision.The government revises each month’s job totals twice in the following two months. The revisions occur because many companies in the survey submit their responses late.Friday’s report said the number of people who have been unemployed for more than six months dropped 258,000 to 4.4 million. Over the past year, the number of long-term unemployed has declined by 687,000.Some analysts cautioned that April’s job gains don’t necessarily point to faster hiring ahead.“There is little sign in these data to suggest that a marked acceleration in monthly job creation in the months ahead is in the cards,” said Scott Anderson, chief economist at Bank of the West.___Follow Chris Rugaber on Twitter at http://Twitter.com/ChrisRugaber by Christopher S.

first_imgUpdated 3.50pm GOVERNMENT MINISTERS HAVE been accused of trying to be “the coolest kid in the schoolyard by chasing headlines” over the Garda Commissioner row on day two of the Fianna Fáil Ard Fheis.Thousands of delegates have gathered at the INEC in Killarney this weekend where the party has been debating and voting on hundreds of motions, including one that would allow the government to shut down a social media site where it leads to the death of a citizen.This afternoon, a proposed amendment to that motion was defeated before delegates easily voted down the motion itself.In the same session, a call to raise the age at which a person can buy alcohol from an off-licence to 21 was defeated while a proposal calling on the government to regulate cash-for-gold shops was passed.Local and European election candidates addressed delegates during a two-hour televised session. Party leader Micheál Martin delivers a keynote speech at 8.30pm tonight.‘Chasing headlines’ In a session on justice, Senator Thomas Byrne criticised Alan Shatter for the closure of rural garda stations – a view echoed by several delegates who spoke – and said that ministers had been acting immaturely in the row over the Garda Commissioner calling the actions of whistleblowers ‘disgusting’.He said that in recent days each minister is “trying to be the coolest kid in the schoolyard by chasing headlines”.The party’s justice spokesperson Niall Collins slammed Shatter, accusing him of arrogance and abuse of power over the several controversies surrounding the gardaí. He said: “He’s not up to the job and it’s time for him to.”The Ard Fheis heard calls for the establishment of an independent police commission to take decisions on the governance and accountability of the gardaí away from the Minister for Justice.Turnout was low for a session entitled ‘social equality for all’ this morning (above). One delegate said that when Labour took office it had taken all of its policies outside Leinster House and “made a big bonfire”.The abolition of the bereavement grant in the last Budget was condemned with social protection spokesperson Willie O’Dea saying: “The reality is when you die, from now on, you’re on your own.”The Limerick TD claimed that in his own constituency there are 32 applicants for every available job and that 250,000 people have emigrated in the last three years seeking employment abroad.Earlier, the Ard Fheis heard from Tom Healy, of the Nevin Economic Research Institure (NERI), who said that a year before the financial crisis every major party had advocated tax cuts.He argued that universal social charge was a good policy introduced by the previous Fianna Fáil government and said greater work should be done to emphasise how it pays for public services.‘Backslapping’ In a session on finance and public expenditure, the party’s Ireland South MEP Brian Crowley praised the late Brian Lenihan and said the former finance minister was forced not to burn the bondholders by the ECB.“There’s no allowance given that Ireland saved the euro by the actions that we took,” he said, criticising the lack of progress on separating Ireland’s banking and sovereign debt.This view was echoed by the the party’s finance spokesperson Micheal McGrath. He said the Irish economy is “like a patient who has come out of intensive care, in deep shock, with a long road ahead”.He slammed the sell-off of the IBRC loan book and criticised banks in relation to mortgage arrears and lending to SMEs.Of the coalition he said: “A bit less backslapping and self-congratulation and a bit more focus on the real issues affecting the people of this country.”Among proposals heard this morning were Galway delegate David Burke’s idea that 10 per cent of the local property tax be ring fenced for use by those who pay it for use on improving their estates.Follow @oconnellhugh for updates from the INEC this weekend.First published 10.37am Last night: Phil Hogan accused of a ‘good old-fashioned gerrymander’Read: Micheál Martin thinks Alan Shatter seems to have a huge problem saying: ‘I got it wrong’Read: Shutting down social media and 11 other motions at the Fianna Fáil Ard Fheislast_img read more

first_imgNude is what is it is called. Nude is artsy and sophisticated. But when I crumpled onto the small wooden platform, I was just plain old naked. And then when I crawled the several feet between me and my robe, I was even more naked.Download AudioApparently, I am told by everyone I have ever told this story to that if one stands with locked knees for too long with locked knees, one faints. Apparently, everyone knows this. I wish I could say collapsing onto a wooden platform, while naked, was the hardest thing that happened as an art model.It wasn’t.Walking into the classroom for the first time, naked under my robe, was harder than pretty much anything else I’ve done. Wedding day – easy. Childbirth – pudding. Climbing mountains – yawn city.The classroom door had a small glass window that I could peer through. I saw them all in there, waiting. I had applied for the job. I had agreed to work. I did want the best paying college job on campus, but I could not open the door. Staying behind the door meant I could still run away. I told myself it would be good for me. I tried to think of other things that would be good for me, but scary, tweezing nose hairs, eating eggs without toast. I still couldn’t open the door.I told myself the artists didn’t know me. After all, I was one of many models. I would act aloof. I would pretend experience. I would feign boredom, ‘Oh, naked in front of strangers again.’I opened the door. I walked in. I stepped up on the stage.“Here’s the model,” the instructor said, “Let’s make her feel welcome, it’s her first time.”I had been naked before. I was naked before. In fact, I had been naked in front of other people, a few. Sure, it was more like slinking naked in front of one person, or dodging naked in front of another. I had never stood face on in front of 20. And certainly not face on in the bright light that streamed through the windows and surrounded by hot floodlights.“Model, model – we’re ready,” the instructor said. My sweaty hand pulled the robe tie. My shoulder shrugged the robe off and tossed it off to the side. And then I stood there and didn’t breath. And I’m sure I didn’t breath for at least a couple of minutes.I did note that that not breathing could cause fainting, so despite the thundering heartbeat in my ears, the cold sweat on my neck and an intense need to urinate, I eventually took a breath.And then I modeled.Although the first time was quite traumatic, when I’m asked what the hardest part of the job was, it wasn’t being barenaked, it was not moving. Unless one is getting paid to sit, or stand, or lie down motionless, I don’t think one would ever try this. One pose could last for 45 minutes. Let’s say it’s a reclining pose, one arm down on my back, the other arm bent and resting across my forehead. The pose feels fine, for a minute.Three minutes into it, my arm, resting on my forehead, becomes heavy. Five minutes into it, my arm becomes The Arm. Eight minutes, I begin to worry about nerve damage to the arm. Then I worry about nerve damage to the forehead.  At 12 minutes, I’m certain the brain is at risk.  17 minutes, breathing, trying to stay calm. 21 minutes trying to pretend I am somewhere else, somewhere without a log pressing on my forehead.26 minutes and  I’m walking on a white sandy beach.  Breath in, Breath out. 35 minutes and I’m sure I will quit, no job is worth brain damage. 42 minutes and I think about tweezing my nose hair. 45 minutes and the instructor says, “That will be all, model.”And then using the arm that is still my arm to pry the arm that is a log off the forehead and then placing the log next to the body and then trying to get up, trying to pretend that it is easy to get up.Stepping off the stage numb, aloof and barenaked.last_img read more

Clubs, which do not sell the drug, but provide paying members a venue for its consumption, are not currently covered by state regulations, but the state marijuana control board is looking at requiring them to be licensed, like cannabis retailers. Pruhs says his ordinance would allow for clubs licensed as part of retail operations.Download AudioCannabis Plant.

So anyone who wants to have a marijuana club in the city of Fairbanks, go out and get a retail license and add it to your marijuana club.”Pruhs says retail license status would put clubs under the same regulations as other marijuana businesses, including local zoning.Fairbanks’ only marijuana Club, “The Higher Calling,” is across the street from a downtown daycare, a location that would violate borough zoning if it were a retail operation. The club’s owners have said they’re considering relocation, and will get a license if required to.The city marijuana club prohibition ordinance is being introduced at tonight’s Fairbanks City Council meeting.last_img read more

first_imgGame of Thrones season 8 episode 4Game of Thrones (@gameofthrones/Instagram)Game of Thrones season 8 episode 4 “The Last War” will feature Daenerys Targaryen finally coming on terms that Ser Jorah Mormont is no longer with her and she has to march King’s Landing with her remaining allies. Jon Snow will probably accompany her but as per a recent fan theory, she will be betrayed by Tyrion Lannister.Game of Thrones season 8 showed reunions of several major characters. On one hand, we saw Arya Stark reuniting with Jon Snow, and then we saw that emotional reunion between Sansa Stark and Theon Greyjoy. But there was a moment in episode 2 “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” where we saw Tyrion Lannister approaching Bran Stark. Their conversation by the fireside was not shown but it looked like the duo talked about several instances for example how Bran became Three-eyed-raven and how Jon is actually Aegon Targaryen.”Bran told Tyrion who Jon actually is and it will be the driving force behind him switching sides. A lot of us couldn’t see Jon releasing the information on his own to get the throne. What if Tyrion tells the world that Jon is the true heir because he doubts Daenerys’ intentions or honor! This would force Jon into a situation of conflict,” writes the fan on Reddit.Since Jon Snow is Aegon Targaryen, he is the true heir to the Iron Throne. Even Daenerys Targaryen holds no right to the throne till Jon is alive. At the same time, Tyrion knows very well what is going on between Jon and Daenerys and back in season 7, we learned that Tyrion was heartbroken after seeing Jon Snow knocking at Daenerys Targaryen’s door in the middle of the night. Game of Thrones season 8 episode 3 leakGame of Thrones (@gameofthrones/Instagram)Furthermore, few of Tyrion’s wrong decisions has cost a lot to Dany. Her ordering her own Hand to stay in Winterfell crypts during the battle of Winterfell could suggest that she has lost all faith in him and would try to push him further away in the remaining two episodes.If Daenerys will ask Tyrion to stop serving her as her Hand, he would simply reveal to everyone that she holds no right to the throne as it is Jon Snow who is the destined King of all the Seven Kingdoms. If Tyrion does that then it will come as a blow to Khaleesi who has lost everyone she has ever loved.last_img read more

first_imgUnion Finance and Corporate Affairs Minister Nirmala Sitharaman chairs the 36th GST Council meeting, in New Delhi on July 27, 2019. Also seen Union MoS Finance and Corporate Affairs Anurag Singh Thakur.IANSIndia Inc has sought a stimulus package of Rs 1 lakh crore to push investment and demand and take the economy and industry out of a slowdown. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Thursday met industry captains to seek consultations for boosting industrial growth in which India Inc placed a demand for a stimulus package of over Rs 1 lakh crore to beat the slowdown.Industry top officials said the government has assured them to take steps soon to boost the economic growth.In a meeting with top industry leaders, called by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman to discuss ways to revive the growth, Assocham President BK Goenka said amid the current slowdown in the global and domestic market, there is a need to have quick-fix solutions.”The economy requires a critical intervention by introducing a stimulus package. We have suggested for a package of over Rs one lakh crore,” he said.After the three-hour meeting, India Inc also said the government has assured them that it would take action soon to revive the industry and push economic growth, he said.JSW Group Chairman Sajjan Jindal said: “It was decided that the government is going to take action very soon to revive the industry and it is a matter of sentiments. We got positive feedback from the finance minister”. The industry is suffering from issues in sectors like steel, NBFC, and automobile.Piramal Enterprises Chairman Ajay Piramal said that the industry raised several matters such as reluctance of banks to lend to the industry. “It is not that there was a lack of liquidity in the banks, but lending is not taking place. There is stress on the economy as far as NBFC sector was concerned,” he told reporters after the meeting.He added that the NBFC issue is impacting sectors like auto, home loan, and MSME. aceI am told that there will be action soon. So, we will wait for that,” he said.Goenka said to boost exports and ensure stability, tax policies and schemes on refunds and incentives should be made steady and continuous, without intermittent changes. Given the fiscal constraints, the government can raise resources by monetising idle government land. In turn, such land can be used for affordable housing and new projects.”While India’s exports are declining, exports in June itself showing a drop of over 9 per cent year-on-year, the unabated US-China trade war throws many opportunities for India, which needs to be tapped.Higher rate of corporate taxes in India also make Indian businesses uncompetitive. Reviving private sector capex is also key to the economic growth. One of the growth drivers would be investment allowance and accelerated depreciation in green field project. There should be incorporation of accelerated depreciation system in first year or over 3 years. Tax rebates can be given for profits ploughed back as investment in new projects, he said.Though there has been rationalization in the category of goods falling under 28 per cent GST, there are still 33 items which remain in the highest slab. “It is recommended that the rate of other goods falling under such category such as cement, consumer durables, automobiles including parts thereof etc should be reduced to 18 per cent”.The Government is also said to have assured that punitive penal provisions concerning non-compliance with CSR spending norms under the companies law would not be pursued.Piramal said the industry demanded that oversight on CSR spending should not result in any imprisonment.Vice-President CII T V Narendran said the government sought views on ways to further stimulate the country’s economic growth. “Across the board, we discussed the key issues,” he said, adding slowdown in the auto industry would have an implication on the steel sector.Sandip Somany, President, FICCI, said transmission of cut in interest rate to consumers by banks is a big issue. “Banks must be encouraged to pass on the benefits of rate reduction to consumers and borrowers. We are hopeful of further rate cut. It is encouraging that the RBI has reduced rates by cumulative 110 basis points,” he said.Goenka strongly advocated setting up a ‘development bank’ which will support startup risk capital. He also sought the Finance Minister’s consideration on Accelerated Depreciation on investments as another measure to encourage investmentEmphasising the immediate need for revival of exports, Assocham president said there are sectors such as textile and garments, are suffering due to constant review and frequent changes being brought in tax refunds/incentives schemes.last_img read more

first_img March 19, 2014 — Hokkaido University and Hitachi Ltd. completed construction of facilities incorporating the Probeat-RT Proton Beam Therapy System within the Hokkaido University Hospital. Hokkaido University and Hitachi had been jointly developing the Probeat–RT. The project was awarded a grant in 2010 under the Funding Program for World-Leading Innovative R&D on Science and Technology (the “FIRST Program”), a national project sponsored by the Japanese government. The University plans to begin treatments using the newly constructed facilities March 19, 2014.The FIRST Program is a major research support structure established as part of a Japanese government initiative to promote science and technology. 30 out of 565 applicant “Core Researchers and Projects” were awarded grants based on their notable potential in the advancement of Japanese science and technology in March 2010. Hokkaido University’s “Advanced Radiation Therapy Project Real-time Tumor-tracking with Molecular Imaging Technique” project was awarded a FIRST grant following an application by Hiroki Shirato, department of radiation medicine, Graduate School of Medicine. This was the only application accepted in the field of radiation therapy. The goal of “Advanced Radiation Therapy Project Real-time Tumor-tracking with Molecular Imaging Technique” is to develop a treatment system that can dramatically reduce the irradiation of normal tissue, in a compact, low-cost system that demonstrates international competitiveness. This goal is achieved by combining the Real-time Tumor –tracking Radiation Therapy developed by Hokkaido University through X-ray therapy with Hitachi’s spot scanning proton beam irradiation technology. In this way, Hokkaido University and Hitachi will offer a proton beam therapy system that can accurately irradiate a tumor that moves due to respiration, for example in the lung and liver.At the recently completed facility, Hokkaido University will provide treatment using spot scanning irradiation technology from Hitachi and strive to quickly develop a treatment system that incorporates its own moving tumor tracking irradiation technology. Hitachi has already applied for approval for manufacture and sales of the treatment system combining spot scanning irradiation and Real-time Tumor-tracking Radiation Therapy. It hopes to receive approval and begin treatments in the first half of FY 2014.By merging technologies and expertise, the system reduces the size of the gantry, the irradiation nozzle and the accelerator. In this approach, they have created a treatment system that is easy to use and more compact overall. In comparison to the Probeat-III Proton Beam Therapy System, which was released previously by Hitachi, the circumference of the accelerator has been reduced to 18 m from the original 23 m; the gantry, which had a maximum external length of 11 m and an internal diameter of 3.5 m, has been reduced in size to a maximum external length of 9 m and an internal diameter of 2.5 m. The installation area required for the system as a whole has been reduced by approximately 30 percent.In “Real-time Tumor Tracking Radiation Therapy,” gold markers are inserted in the proximity of the tumor, and a computed tomography (CT) system is used to identify the marker positions in relation to the tumor core. Using an X-ray fluoroscopy system from two directions, this technology automatically pinpoints the gold markers positions on a fluoroscopy image using pattern recognition, and repeatedly calculates the spatial position at regular intervals. The treatment beam only irradiates the targeted tumor when the gold markers are located within a few millimeters of the planned positions. As this operation is performed at high speed, it is possible to irradiate tumors with a high degree of accuracy, even when they move within the body, for example due to the patient’s respiration. Compared to conventional methods that irradiate the entire area in which the tumor might migrate, this system reduces the irradiation volume by 50-75 percent, allowing a reduction in the irradiation of normal tissue.Hitachi’s Spot scanning irradiation technology uses a constant, narrow beam, repeatedly turning this beam on and off at high speed as it progressively changes location. In this way, the beams can be targeted with high precision according to the shape of the tumors, even if those shapes are extremely complex, thus minimizing the impact on normal tissue.For more information: www.oia.hokudai.ac.jp, www.hitachi.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | March 19, 2014 Hokkaido University, Hitachi Develop Proton Beam Therapy System News | Proton Therapy | August 06, 2019 IBA Signs Contract to Install Proton Therapy Center in Kansas IBA (Ion Beam Applications S.A.) recently signed a contract and received the first payment for a Proteus One solution… read more The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023.

virtually wiped out Apart from these an attack also took place on 11 March this year in which an IED blastkilled 12 jawans but didn’t get much traction from the media as it took place on the same day that results to Assembly elections in five states were announced "Multiple factors — from leadership failure to loopholes in the functioning of the security forces — have led to the death of 25 CRPF personnel The most unfortunate part is that despite repeated incidents no lessons are being learned" Prakash Singh said former director general Border Security Force and an expert on Left-wing extremism Factors leading to repeated attacks and killing of jawans: Non following of SOPs: According to local sources aroad opening party (ROP) by the CRPF divided into two groups was having lunch when the ambush occurred According to standard operating procedures (SOPs) instead of sitting together in a large group the jawans should have divided themselves into small groups of four or five "It’s against basic SOP Prima facie evidence indicates this SOP wasn’t followed Ifone jawan takes lunch the other protects Even when jawans march a gap is always maintained Repeated attacks and killings of CRPF personnel indicates failure in following SOPs Secondly was there a quick response team (QRT) to back the ROP" questioned counter-terrorism analyst Anil Kamboj Lack of leadership: Experts have questioned the CRPF leadership from the top to the platoon commandant level The post of director general in the CRPF has been lying vacant for over 50 days and it demoralises the force at all levels Lack of coordination: Lack of coordination between the state police and central forces gives Maoists an opportunity to have the upper hand over CRPF and the police Instead of putting the onus of countering Naxalism on the Centre the state police should be at the forefront Combating Naxalism shouldn’t be considered a battle between the Centre and the Maoist cadre Instead of playing second fiddle the Chhattisgarh police have to play an active role" Singh remarked Lack of proper training: Security experts have questioned whether the CRPF personnel are adequately trained in guerrilla warfare against the Maoists in the difficult terrain in Bastar The CoBRA battalion — anelite force within CRPF that is efficiently trained for this purpose — hasonly eight battalions deployed in Bastar Why did the Chhattisgarh government fail to develop an effective anti-Naxal squad like Andhra Pradesh’s Greyhound Poor infrastructure and manpower: According to sources out of 425 sanctioned police stations in Chhattisgarh only 403 exists; out of which 161 don’t have vehicles Many police stations in these highly sensitive areas are half-staffed as policemen prefer not to have postings there Nearly 10000 vacancies have fallen short in Chhattisgarh police Intelligence failure:"Obviously the large number of Maoists who led the ambush were not paratrooped on a single day Why did CRPF fail to get information about their movement and gathering" questioned Singh former DGP UP police Area domination:"CRPF personnel are there to protect the road construction work and the workers But if they are unable to defend themselves from Maoist attacks how can we expect them to protect the area The foremost requirement in combating Maoists is area domination Repeated ambushes shows failure on the part of security forces in this effort" added Kamboj a former senior fellow at IDSA Written by Kalpana Sharma | Published: March 17 2016 12:00 am Related News When public figures speak violence the fallout goes beyond their immediate targets In ways seen and unseen those most affected are often women Recently we saw an illustration of this during the Jat quota stir In a sea of men blocking highways and railway tracks women were invisible In fact they were not there at all Yet they figured not as participants but as targets Although everyone seems to deny that any molestation or rapes occurred at the end of February there are several reports that suggest that women were attacked and that most of them will not speak out That is hardly surprising Did we not see that in Muzaffarnagar in September 2013 In the communal riots preceding the 2014 general elections only after the violence had subsided an estimated 60 people had died and 60000 mostly Muslims had been displaced did the stories of rape begin to be told Till today there has been no closure Just a few days ago one of those cases was closed because the survivor and her family “turned hostile” another way of saying that they were either intimidated or decided to keep quiet for fearof consequences Share This Article Related Article Despite changes in the rape law and an increase in general awareness after the 2012 gangrape in Delhi the reality for rape survivors who fight for justice is either endless delay and humiliation or threats forcing them to withdraw charges Statistics of the low conviction rate amply illustrate this reality Muzaffarnagar and Murthal tell us the same story When there is public violence by way of riots or agitations the consequence is often heightened levels of violence against women This is not unique to India Studies around the world have established this reality in multiple locations The most ghastly in recent memory is Rwanda where during the genocide in 1994 when Hutus systematically eliminated Tutsis in the course of 100 days of violence an estimated half a million women were raped or killed The legacy of that violence has still not been erased In the current atmosphere in India where statements are made almost on a daily basis about chopping off heads slicing tongues and taking revenge there is real reason to worry This kind of heightened violence much of it going unchallenged and even endorsed by the very people who should be stopping it leaves all women vulnerable not just those belonging to the targeted groups What this does is that it makes violence acceptable as a way of settling scores If ministers in the government speak such language and they get away without being reprimanded and are not even hauled up for hate speech then what is to stop any person from assuming that such talk and the actions that follow are permissible While data has established that the majority of incidents of violence against women occur in the home or familiar neighbourhoods a heightened atmosphere of violence affects women’s access to the public space At such times the problem is viewed as a breakdown in law and order In fact it is a direct fallout of a culture of political violence that is deliberately perpetuated and thereby becomesthe norm The government needs to recognise this and address it because it undercuts its stated efforts to “empower” women Beti bachao and beti padhao will remain empty slogans if girls fear stepping out to go to school or women are terrified at the thought of giving birth to another girl who will have to confront increasing violence at home and outside A survey conducted by the group Breakthrough in 2014 in five states and 15 districts in India indicated that girls on their way to school had to fight off sexually explicit verbal comments stalking and sometimes molestation The unsafe spaces women listed included bus stops railway stations open toilets public toilets markets and streets In other words practically all public spaces In election season women will be more constrained and restricted if these public spaces that they must necessarily negotiate every single day also become the sites of political violence The fear of molestation and rape will hold young girls back from attending school prevent women from going out to work and in myriad other ways directly affect their mobility The more dangerous aspect is not just the random violence in the public space but the targeted one when women become a part of the plan to wreak vengeance by one group of men on another This is what we saw in Muzaffarnagar And this is what could repeat itself as the electoral temperature rises particularly in Uttar Pradesh These realities are constantly obscured in the continuous talk about achievement and empowerment of some women or in the increasingly empty and consumerist agendas that now dominate the celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8 The writer is a
