Bangladesh embassy in Colombo attacked

Earlier today the government claimed that there were reports that some extremist elements may attempt to create tensions in the city over the Bangladesh incident. Angry protesters attacked the Bangladesh Embassy in Colombo this evening over the mob attack on Buddhist Temples and homes in Bangladesh.The protesters  including several Buddhist monks, took to the streets to vent their anger over the incident in Bangladesh and threw water bottles towards the Embassy, damaging windows and other property. Bangladesh’s High Court asked the Bangladesh government yesterday to explain why local officials failed to provide security to minority Buddhists whose homes, temples and businesses were attacked over a picture of a burned Quran posted on Facebook.A two-judge panel asked top bureaucrats of the Home Ministry and local administrators to reply within a week and ordered authorities to ensure safety in troubled areas of southern Bangladesh. The judges ruled after a lawyer presented several newspaper reports on last weekend’s attacks. At least 10 temples and 40 homes were torched, looted or vandalized in the coastal district of Cox’s Bazar.The court also asked a government-formed investigative committee to submit its findings to it by Oct. 17.The government has already removed a local police chief for failing to thwart the attacks. Meanwhile Muslim organizations in Colombo had yesterday condemned the attack on the Buddhist Temples in Bangladesh. read more

UNICEF chief congratulates Afghans on birth registration drive

Speaking in the Ministry of Interior during the second day of her visit to Afghanistan, Executive Director Carol Bellamy noted that polio vaccination teams had registered 97 per cent of all children in the target age group – reaching every household in the country – as part of a drive to register all children under the age of one by the end of 2003.”The registration of each child creates capacity – the capacity for a child to enter education at the right age and the capacity to receive essential health care during those vital early years,” Ms. Bellamy said. “And by registering the births of Afghanistan’s children, we can enable the Government and its partners to plan future services more effectively. This campaign is therefore a keystone in the development of Afghanistan’s children.”Many people would not have believed that such a success could be possible in a country still emerging from 23 years of conflict. The fact that the Government has made such progress in such a short time-span is a testimony to the commitment and resourcefulness of those involved in the campaign,” she added. read more

Historic England objects to billionaire art couples plan to knock down parts

first_imgThe couple, rated the ninth wealthiest couple in Britain, resubmitted plans last month which agreed to preserve more of the former Sunday school’s walls but included reconstruction of original brick features.However, the new plans also proposed further demolition of the space’s middle gallery.A letter sent to Camden council by Historic England read: “We welcome the changes made to retain the majority of the walls of the former Sunday school, the oldest space in the building. Anita Zabludowicz at the Zabludowicz Collection Credit:Silverhub/REX/Shutterstock A billionaire couple have sparked a backlash from Historic England over plans to demolish parts of a listed church for their art collection.Poju and Anita Zabludowicz founded the Zabludowicz Collection in the Nineties to “champion” emerging contemporary artists.The pair took over a former Methodist chapel in Chalk Farm, north London, in 2007 to house works by the likes of former Turner Prize nominee Tracey Emin. “This will allow continued appreciation of this space and its role connected to the chapel, whilst retaining a greater degree of its material integrity than the previous scheme.”We are disappointed to note that the revisions include a greater degree of demolition to the middle gallery … The justification for this change is not clear.”Overall we consider that the scheme is notably improved, although it would still cause some harm to the listed building.”A spokeswoman for the Zabludowicz Collection told the Evening Standard it had submitted plans to improve facilities for exhibition, performance, education and storage, as well as to improve access to the upper floors.She added: “The proposed plans respect and enhance the historic features of the building and the collection is working closely with architects FMA, Camden Design and Historic England to ensure the rich character and history of the building would be maintained as part of any future improvement works.”A date has not yet been set for the council’s planning committee to pass a decision on the plans. Anita Zabludowicz In January, the couple submitted plans to demolish part of the chapel’s former Sunday school in a bid to extend the gallery and create potential space for a cafe.But the Government’s official heritage advisers Historic England claimed the demolition would “cause harm to a listed building”.The body called for developers to reassess the benefit that the destruction of the building, which dates to 1880, would have on the community.

Analysis The reaction to Enda Kennys State of the Nation speech

first_imgDid you watch the address? What did you make of it? Let us know in the comments… Video: Here’s what Enda Kenny had to say in his State of the Nation address > Poll: Does today’s bailout exit make you feel any better? Troika Translator: What they said and what they meant > That’s all, folks: IMF praise Ireland, but lay out important challenges > IT’S SAFE TO say that there wasn’t a whole lot that was new in the Taoiseach’s national address this evening.Part of this was down to the subject matter. Unlike his first state of the nation address in December 2011 when he warned the country about just how bad the upcoming Budget was going to be, this one on the subject of Ireland’s official exit from the bailout programme was a little less dramatic.But it was also because there just wasn’t a whole lot for Enda to actually say. Michael Noonan had already observed that things will be almost exactly the same tomorrow morning and the only real difference will be felt on the markets – something the Taoiseach echoed in his speech tonight, saying that “our lives won’t change overnight”.Video and transcript: What Enda Kenny said in his national address tonightHe hit a lot of familiar marks, talking about the tough decisions which had been necessary, acknowledging the hardships that people have been through and promising that Ireland is on the right track.It was clear that this was more of a marking of a moment, something that will  be shown on Reeling in the Years at some stage in the future.This didn’t go unnoticed by people on social media. While the Government used the hashtag #irlexit to talk about the speech on Twitter, Twitter users weren’t so kind..(Pic: TrendsIreland/Twitter)#Stateofit trended in Ireland more than one hour before the speech began as users took the State of the Nation theme and added their criticisms. #FGFail which also trended in Ireland was similarly used by some tweeters to criticise the Taoiseach.Some went further. A Facebook group called Turn Your TV Off On Enda Kenny This Sunday amassed more than 2,700 likes, with people pledging not to watch the Taoiseach’s address.Here’s some of the reaction from Twitter this evening:last_img read more

Column Got the January blues Dont let them drag you down

first_imgAS THE SONG GOES: “January, don’t be cold don’t be angry with me…” and January can indeed feel miserable, empty and cold after all the warmth and merrymaking that is Christmas. Ho ho ho can turn to no no no! Why oh why did I eat too much? Drink too much? Spend too much? Party too much? And where’s that radio station when you need it? The one that constantly told us that life was all holly jolly and dreaming of snow and driving home with Chris Rhea and chestnuts roasting and all that! Who could forget the Granny that got run over by a reindeer? Disappeared into the ether and left us with an empty space in our heads in which all sorts of confused thoughts and distortions can take up residence.Then there is New Years with the promise of renewal and the opportunity to improve ourselves. To rid ourselves of the excess of Christmas, to rid ourselves of the guilt, remorse and regret we may be feeling. Yes! I will get fit, I will eat healthier, I will drink less and meditate more. I will start on Monday. This Monday then suddenly become next Monday. The New Year promises to be so much better than the old one and we welcome this promise with open arms. Anything to shake off our old self and bring on the new and improved me. New Year’s resolutions, that’s the answer! Resolve, the dictionary tells us, is to be determined to do something. So we will strengthen our resolve and be better people.Sound familiar? Why do we torture ourselves so much? Why do we constantly judge ourselves so harshly? Most of us seem to set ourselves almost impossible tasks; the perfect Christmas, the perfect family, the perfect home, the perfect job, the perfect body, the perfect me. When will it be ok? When will we pass the final exam? What is the final exam? The reality is that there is no exam, no test. Life is not a competition where we have to be better or worse than anyone else. Life is for living and living in such a way that we are true to ourselves, true to our own heart.So Christmas wasn’t like it is on Walton’s Mountain. The New Year seems the same as the old one. The only bit of Christmas red still hanging about is on the bank statement. The tins of biscuits and chocolates are still with us, just not where we want them to be. This year’s resolutions have joined forces with the discarded ones from last year and seem to have morphed into a judge and jury that ruefully shake its head as an indication that we have failed yet again. Tried and found wanton, guilty as charged, not good enough. How about aspiring to being just that – ‘good enough’?A wise young man that I know has decided that 2014 is the year to evolve instead of resolve. I like that notion and wish I could take the credit for it but that is his due. Evolve is to develop gradually. It has a feeling of ease about it like stretching and awakening and tuning inwards instead of imposing some external standard. It brings a sense of renewal, of meeting with the opportunities that the New Year will bring our way. Being open to possibility and change. Sounds much more exciting and fun to me.So can 2014 be your evolutionary year? How would you like to evolve? Take your time; remember evolution is a slow process. Whatever you decide heed the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment”. Have a great good-enough-New-Year!Bernadette Ryan is a counsellor for Relationships Ireland and Teen Between.

Car manufacturing Greeces way out of the crisis

first_imgGreece’s national motor company Namco could be Greece’s answer out of the economic crisis, according to its CEO Petros Kontogouris.“This is the real backbone of the Greek economy,” Mr Kontogouris said. “Everything else, such as tourism, is all well and good, but it does not bring the same results to the economy.”However, there’s a catch: this turn around may only be possible with the help of German investments. Despite the rocky relationship in recent years between the two European countries due to economic instability in the eurozone, Namco are looking to mend the ties. Started by the Kontogouris brothers in the 1970s, the company’s ties with Germany date back to 1973 when companies such as Intelco and Fahr would supply their spare parts. The Greek and German union proved successful and popular through a simple formula – using highly durable materials, coupled with the simplification of the usually high-tech German designs. This led to the creation of almost indestructible SUVs, truck and military vehicles, making them popular in the African, Asian and South American markets.“The engines were supplied by Citroën, Ford, Volkswagen and Deutz, and we took care of the body,” Mr Kontogouris explained.Currently standing as Greece’s only car factory, their plant based in Thessaloniki has the capacity to produce between 6,000 to 8,000 cars per year – a significant figure for the Greek car manufacturer.Now looking to return to its glory days with the announcement of its new generation Pony model, the company is unfortunately facing some challenges from the Greek government. Namco is one of many Greek companies being delayed by the red tape of state licensing authorities. Although ready to commence work almost immediately, without the correct authorisation the manufacturing company has had to put the brakes on its plans for the upgrade of its popular car model – an example of the unwanted bureaucracy created through the crisis. Unfortunately, lack of opportunity has seen many highly skilled automotive engineers in Greece going without work and moving abroad to countries with stronger manufacturing industries such as Germany. However, Mr Kontogouris is looking to create in-country opportunities to stop these valuable workers from venturing away from their homeland. “Now it is time that we give these people work again in Greece,” he said. If all goes to plan, Germany’s investments, along with the support of Greeks abroad, will see the manufacture of the new generation Pony create a much-needed 2,800 jobs in the northern Greek region. With Mr Kontogouris seeing the banks’ lending policies as the cause of Greece’s economic downfall, the CEO would rather look to other sources of funding. With a tried and tested model, he claims that the company’s 17 million euros in share capital has the capacity to increase up to 30 to 40 million euros through the issuing of what he refers to as ‘people’s shares’.“We do not believe in the banks and their lending policies, which caused worldwide economic chaos,” said Mr Kontogouris. “We are relying on broad-scale support.”Aside from its plan to commence manufacturing cars in Greece again and the upgrade of the Pony model, Namco continues to foster its presence in the African and Asian markets. The company is currently building a car with a Toyota Yaris engine in Vietnam.Source: DM Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Longfeared flood rolls toward La bayou country

first_imgAMELIA, La. (AP) — The oil-and-seafood hub of Morgan City has been hit by one disaster after another, from hurricanes to the BP oil spill. The latest trouble involves a deluge of water that was diverted from the Mississippi River and is headed toward the town of about 12,000 people.The Army Corps of Engineers, desperate to save Baton Rouge and New Orleans from flooding, opened a spigot on a spillway over the weekend, intentionally flooding this part of Cajun country, an area much less populated. But the cascade of water from the Morganza floodway is hampering the local oil industry and fishermen on the bayou.Meanwhile, what is believed to be the first death related to the flooding since the river’s rising waters began affecting Mississippi and Louisiana was reported Thursday in Vicksburg, Miss. Walter Cook, 69, who drowned, died early Thursday at a hospital after being pulled from floodwaters Wednesday.Also, the threat of flooding prompted at least one school district in Louisiana to end the school year early. Students in Assumption Parish schools will not have to attend classes next week because the school board voted Wednesday to end the school year on Friday.Back in Morgan City on Wednesday, Harry Ribardi, a shrimper, was still waiting on the check BP promised to make up for his losses last year. Now he’s facing another man-made disaster.last_img read more

Building a digital life form OpenWorm Open Source

first_imgCode, data and models produced as part of the OpenWorm project is open-source under the MIT license.The Open Worm project thus far has produced an early demo that shows five muscle segments of the worm’s body moving in water. “People will need to wait some months, though, before being able to download the virtual creature, according to one of the development team members. He estimated it would take another three to five months before simulations are debugged and integrated “to the point where the average curious developer could build and run the project and see the muscular shell of a worm swimming around,” he told New World Notes.What’s the point of all this effort to create a digital worm? “If we cannot build a computer model of a worm, the most studied organism in all of biology, we don’t stand a chance to understand something as complex as the human brain,” according to the project site.” We must crawl before we can walk!”The project members hope this is the first step toward creation of more biologically accurate virtual creatures. (Phys.org) —The worm Caenorhabditis elegans is one of the most widely studied creatures. Scientists consider the worm a model organism for exploring animal development including neural development. The reasons are basic; it has one of the most simple nervous systems, and is convenient for genetic analysis. Never mind that, in turn, there is already an enormous amount of biological data about the C. elegans; scientists are still seeking more answers about the worm. Now there is a novel information path, The OpenWorm Project. They are working up an artificial life form, computationally created, a digital life form as no other. “OpenWorm is an open source project dedicated to creating a virtual C. elegans nematode in a computer,” says the project web page.This is a collaborative undertaking that includes software developers and neuroscience researchers. Their work marks the first comprehensive computer model of the Caenorhabditis elegans nematode worm. This will be a detailed simulation modeling each of the worm’s cells. Their data draws from completed scientific experiments conducted over the past ten years. They are incorporating the available data into software models. They hope that modeling the creature with enough detail will trigger complex behaviors, such as feeding, finding mates and avoiding predators, spontaneously. In other words, their virtual worm would, as they anticipate, behave like a real-world worm.With all the C. elegans simplicity, however, their work is not so easy. Reporting on their progress so far, the OpenWorm project site notes that “the challenge of simulating even a tiny worm is immense. It requires a lot of parallel activities.” This document is subject to copyright.

Explore further The OpenWorm project is traveling over five hills to get where they need to go: NeuroML connections; the Geppetto simulation engine; the OpenWorm browser; a fluid mechanics simulator; and optimization engine.Talking about the NeuroML Connectome, they converted all 302 neurons into multicompatmental neuronal models described in NeuroML format. “We are currently building descriptions of the synaptic junctions and the ion channels for each cell.” Talking about the fluid mechanics simulator, they said they implemented an algorithm, Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH), to simulate the body of the worm and its environment using GPUs. This algorithm was worked out in C++ (with OpenGL visualization), then ported to Java as a bundle for Geppetto, the simulation engine.As for Geppetto, this simulation platform is designed to run the different models together. Geppetto features a built-in WebGL visualizer, for visualization of simulated models right in the browser.last_img read more

This RIS also offers data collection and reporting capabilities designed to equip managers to maximize revenue opportunities, while delivering gains in productivity for schedulers, radiologists and managers. Technologists enter the dose of each exam, and the RIS issues an alert to the technologist if the dose is out of range. The RIS go further by collecting and reporting exposures for all exams. This system can be used to track radiologic imaging exams and radiation therapy treatment. Dose management is an option included with the platform that can be activated, but is not required. For critically ill patients, the RIS tracks critical results notification and issues warnings for aging messages to help ensure patients receive prompt treatment. As for workflow, the RIS aims to boosts efficiency by expediting scheduling of single, dual and series imaging exams across multiple locations. It is used to confirm eligibility and evaluate that procedure codes are consistent and accurate. Radiologists productivity may improve using interactive voice dictation, voice command and control and mouse-less reporting. The RIS selects a standardized report based on the exam procedure, and patient and exam information is prepopulated. This eliminates the need for radiologists to search for the appropriate report format and manually insert information. The RIS is designed for user customization across a variety of features, including: screen displays, patient communication materials, scheduling rules that can vary by site, management reports and other important functions. This allows the system to present to the user the information that they need, when they need to see it.Mammography tools capture patient history, current exam findings, pathology reports, patient follow-up and tracking and help automate radiology reports. Letters to patients and referring physicians can be quickly customized, generated and tracked. Available reports include: MQSA basic audit data, initial diagnosis statistics, patient follow-up and patient status. Management tools help administrators boost efficiency by displaying staff and resource utilization, as well as contributing factors such as cancelled exams and patient no-show lists. If managers determine that process and workflow changes are needed, they can redesign screen displays to support these adjustments. The RIS also supports integration of in-house or outsourced billing systems.CARESTREAM RIS is Microsoft .NET-connected to offer unmatched flexibility and scalability, while supporting an optimized radiology workflow across small, single-site or large, multi-site enterprises.

Another picture shows Jackson dressed in a white Christian missionary-style dress, surrounded by multiple images of her naked self.“Very often when you talk about subjects like war or voyeurism or missionaries or the colonial moment, usually the subject is being photographed by someone else” says Jackson, who is originally from New Jersey. “The act of myself reflecting myself … helps people to not feel that I’m speaking from a voyeuristic standpoint” she adds.Another artist who uses his own life experiences in his work is 27-year-old Zimbabwean Richard Mudariki, who moved from his homeland to paint in Cape Town in 2011. “As a young artist, what they call an emerging African artist, it’s an important platform for me … to come and show my work” he says. But it is art inspired by Africa’s socio-economic woes and political upheavals that attracts buzz among visitors to the fair.A life-size elephant made from trash draws a steady stream of art enthusiasts who pose for pictures with the sculpture. The recycled pachyderm, encased with a mesh of wire to hold the plastic pieces in place, is one of several works by African artists who use everyday items for their art projects.One gallery exhibits magazine covers from South Africa’s 1950s legendary publication “Drum.” The covers have photographs by black photographers using images of black subjects during the apartheid era and the images spark an ad hoc history lesson for school children.Other works are more challenging or controversial than others.African-American photographer Ayana Vellissia Jackson came to South Africa five years ago, to explore art on the continent. “One of the reasons I moved to South Africa … was because of the vibrancy of the art market here, the galleries, the laboratories for photography” she said. “Also to participate in the emergence of contemporary art from artists from Africa, reflecting their own communities and their own realities” Bottoms up!

Natural spring cleaning tips and tricks for your home Mudariki’s colorful, modernist and abstract paintings reflect his upbringing in Zimbabwe, the social turmoil in his homeland, and the challenges the country still faces.“My art is more social commentary” says Mudariki. “I like to portray what’s happening around me … and also there’s an influence in the background I come from, from a country where things weren’t right at a time I was also there.”One of the largest exhibits at this year’s fair is from the Equatorial Guinea Museum of Modern Art. Curator Marc Stanes has assembled an eclectic mix of carvings, textiles, paintings, sculptures and photographs from countries that don’t get much exposure on the international art scene, including Equatorial Guinea, Burkina Faso, Mali and Benin.“Historically at the art fair we tend to see purely South African works of art. From our collection we had the opportunity to introduce works from across Africa” says Stanes. “We don’t often see them in the southern part of the continent, and it’s really what all the major collectors and institutions would like to see.”Among the museum’s traveling collection, Stanes says he would be hard pressed to pick a standout piece, but describes some of the West African textile works as “different … fresh.” One woven tapestry that Stanes points out is by an Equatorial Guinean artist who writes poetry to accompany his work, which is inspired by the sea that surrounds his Malabo island home. “We see very little textile work at the fair, and that for me is always a bonus” he adds. 3 international destinations to visit in 2019last_img read more
