Morocco calls for road map to solve Libyan crisis

Cairo  – Morocco called, on Thursday in Cairo, for a road map to solve the crisis in Libya.Speaking at the extraordinary meeting by the Council of Arab Foreign Ministers, foreign minister Salaheddine Mezouar said that the settlement of the crisis in Libya relies on elaborating a road map that encompasses the security, institutional and development aspects. He added that the Libyan people cannot accept that the future and territorial integrity of their State be undermined, all the more so because they staunchly opposed colonialism and despotism, underlining that only legality can achieve reconciliation in this country and restore a climate of security and stability.  This legality will be stronger as part of an inclusive framework that brings together all parties to build the institutions of a modern state capable of addressing the challenges of sustainable development, he noted. Mezouar deplored the worsening situation in Libya that hinders the chances to solve the crisis, undermines the foundations of the Libyan State and poses a threat to the security of neighboring countries. read more

Lanka releases 37 Chinese fishermen

Sri Lanka’s location astride an ancient trade route in the Indian Ocean makes it of strategic commercial and military interest to the United States, India and China. The Chinese embassy had “urged Sri Lankan authorities to handle the issue in accordance with the law, sort out the truth and release the Chinese fishermen as soon as possible,” Xinhua said in an earlier report. Sri Lanka released 37 Chinese fishermen detained by its navy, China’s Xinhua state news agency reported on Monday, putting a quick end to what could have been a test of the increasingly close ties between Beijing and Colombo.Sri Lanka’s navy arrested the fishermen on Sunday night for fishing in Sri Lankan waters. They were aboard two trawlers off the country’s east coast town of Batticaloa, Xinhua said. China has been competing for influence in Sri Lanka with India, traditionally the island’s most important ally.Beijing has lent Sri Lanka hundreds of millions of dollars to build ports, roads, railways, power plants and a new airport, fuelling speculation China wants military bases on the island, something denied by Sri Lanka. read more

Mizzous AllAmerican Michael Sam Says Hes An Openly Proud

Mizzous AllAmerican Michael Sam Says Hes An Openly Proud

Michael Sam, the SEC Defensive Player of the Year for Missouri, revealed to several news outlets that he is gay, setting the way for him to become the first openly homosexual player in the NFL.In interviews with ESPN, The New York Times and Outsports that were published Sunday, Sam, a defensive end, said his teammates and coaches at Missouri have known since August.“I am an openly, proud gay man,” he said. “It’s a big deal. No one has done this before. And it’s kind of a nervous process, but I know what I want to be. . .  I want to be a football player in the NFL.”Last year, NBA player Jason Collins announced he was gay after the season. Collins, a 35-year-old backup center, was a free agent and has not signed with a new team this season. MLS star and U.S. national team player Robbie Rogers also came out a year ago. Division III Willamette kicker Conner Mertens, a redshirt freshman, said last month he was bisexual. There have been several NFL players who have come out after their playing days, including Kwame Harris and Dave Kopay.The 255-pound Sam is projected to be a mid-round NFL draft pick.“We admire Michael Sam’s honesty and courage,” the NFL said in statement. “Michael is a football player. Any player with ability and determination can succeed in the NFL. We look forward to welcoming and supporting Michael Sam in 2014.”Sam said many people at the Senior Bowl all-star game for NFL prospects seemed to know that he was gay. His team has known since August, he said.“I didn’t realize how many people actually knew, and I was afraid that someone would tell or leak something out about me,” he told ESPN. “I want to own my truth. . . No one else should tell my story but me.”Before coming out to all his teammates and coaches, Sam said he told a few close friends and dated another Missouri athlete who was not a football player.“Coaches just wanted to know a little about ourselves, our majors, where we’re from and something that no one knows about you,” Sam said. “And I used that opportunity just to tell them that I was gay. And their reaction was like, ‘Michael Sam finally told us.’ ”Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said in a statement Sunday night: “Michael is a great example of just how important it is to be respectful of others. He’s taught a lot of people here first-hand that it doesn’t matter what your background is, or your personal orientation, we’re all on the same team and we all support each other. If Michael doesn’t have the support of his teammates like he did this past year, I don’t think there’s any way he has the type of season he put together.”Missouri linebacker Donovan Bonner has been a teammate of Sam’s for five years.“We knew of his status for five years and not one team member, coach, or staff member said anything says a lot about our family atmosphere,” Bonner tweeted. read more

Ping un million dutilisateurs et autant de déceptions

first_imgPing : un million d’utilisateurs et autant de déceptionsSi Apple se félicite d’avoir dépassé le million d’utilisateurs inscrits sur Ping, son réseau social musical lié à iTunes et à l’iTunes Store, l’engouement a bien vite fait place à la déception. Entre inondation de spams et services trop fermés, Ping n’a pas les armes pour faire trembler Facebook et Twitter.Présenté en même temps qu’iTunes 10, Ping a pour vocation de permettre aux internautes de partager leurs goûts musicaux et de suivre l’actualité de leurs artistes préférés. Décrite par Steve Jobs comme un “mélange entre Twitter et Facebook”, la plateforme aurait enregistré un million d’inscriptions en deux jours, quand iTunes compte quelque 160 millions de fidèles.Mais déjà, le réseau social essuie ses premières et nombreuses critiques. Outre une installation trop compliquée, à l’instar de la recherche d’amis bloquée par Facebook, les utilisateurs de Ping sont inondés de scams et de spams. Apple aurait en effet omis de munir sa plateforme sociale d’un filtrage d’URL ou de spams. Alors que de nombreux internautes se plaignent de l’ergonomie du réseau social, d’autres critiquent la politique de mise en avant des artistes sur Ping. Si les stars internationales déjà omniprésentes, telles que U2, Shakira ou Lady Gaga, bénéficient d’une belle visibilité, les chanteurs qui auraient pourtant besoin de l’être ne sont pas mis en lumière. Les amateurs de musique devraient donc continuer à privilégier MySpace, qui reste aujourd’hui encore la référence en matière de réseau social dédié à la musique. Comme Google Buzz avant lui, Ping a attiré une foule d’internautes, mais cet engouement semble retomber comme un soufflé. Le réseau social du géant de Mountain View avait en effet vu des millions de personnes s’inscrire, mais pour rapidement déchanter. Outre des problèmes de respect de la vie privée comme en connaissent tous les réseaux sociaux, Buzz n’a pas su se créer une réelle utilité, n’offrant rien de plus que Twitter et Facebook. Ping semble, malheureusement pour Apple, bien parti pour suivre la même voie.  Le 7 septembre 2010 à 15:25 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Heello TwitPic crée un concurrent pour Twitter

first_imgHeello : TwitPic crée un concurrent pour TwitterTwitPic vient de dévoiler un tout nouveau service de micro-blogging. Baptisé Heello, c’est un véritable clone de celui qu’il entend concurrencer : Twitter. Une réponse au service de partage de photos que Twitter a récemment lancé, alors que TwitPic était jusque là le service de publication des photos sur le réseau social.Heello (lien non disponible) ressemble à s’y méprendre à Twitter. Lancé par TwitPic, comme une vengeance après que Twitter a lancé son propre service de partage de photos, ce site de micro-blogging est semblable en tous points, ou presque, au site dont il est le clone.À lire aussiEn Australie, les requins utilisent Twitter pour signaler leur approcheSeule la sémantique change. Le “tweet”, qui ne peut contenir plus de 140 caractères, comme sur Twitter, devient en effet le “Ping”, tandis que les membres du site de micro-blogging peuvent “écouter” les autres comptes, et non les “suivre”. TwitPic offre évidemment la possibilité de partager des photos, service qu’il développait jusqu’alors pour Twitter, mais aussi des vidéos. Twitter vient de lancer une fonction native de partage de photos, et a ainsi naturellement provoqué la colère de TwitPic. “Si Twitter peut concurrencer ses développeurs sans préavis, alors pourquoi pas nous ?”, estime Noah Everett, cité par ZDnet. “Nous n’avions pas idée que Twitter allait concevoir une fonction photo. La communication ente Twitter et les développeurs n’a jamais été très claire et la relation entre Twitter et ses développeurs a beaucoup changé” déplore-t-il.Le 12 août 2011 à 14:43 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Learn to Speak Like a Millennial With 300 New Dictionarycom Definitions

first_img The times, they are a-changin. And in an effort to keep up, this week added more than 300 new words and definitions to its repertoire.From Internet slang abbreviations (JSYK and JOMO) to inclusive and empowered identity and cultural terms (aromantic), the online lexicon is jumping feet first into the zeitgeist.“Now, we can’t do a deep dive into every new entrant here, because we only have one article and that would be too great an infodump,” the domain said in a blog post highlighting some of its latest additions. “So, consider this overview an elevator pitch for how our updates are defining the times.”Perhaps the most important enhancements concern visibility of marginalized groups.Three new terms take advantage of the letter “x” in alternative spellings, meant to be inclusive of those who identify as gender non binary:Latinx: “Of or relating to people of Latin American design; used in place of the masculine form Latino and feminine form Latina” (recorded in 2000-05) Stay on target Oxford Dictionary adds new slang, gaming terms, and a verb form of ̵…Adorkable is now a real word in the dictionary Colorism: “Differential treatment based on skin color, especially favoritism toward those with a lighter skin tone and mistreatment or exclusion of those with a darker skin tone, typically among those of the same racial group or ethnicity”Whitelash: “A hostile or violent reaction by white people to the advances or influx of other racial or ethnic groups” (first recorded in 1965-70)Other race-based additions—neither term nor phenomena new—include:White guilt: “The feelings of shame and remorse some white people experience when they recognize the legacy of racism and injustice and perceive the ways they have benefited from it”White fragility: “The tendency among members of the dominant white cultural group to have a defensive, wounded, angry, or dismissive response to evidence of racism” (coined by author and academic Robin DiAngelo in her 2011 article “White Fragility”)And in a win for feminism, the dictionary has defined two relevant and provocative concepts:Male gaze: “The assumption in visual and creative arts that the default or desired audience consists of heterosexual males, and inclusion of women in narrative or art should seek to please this audience with the objectification or sexualization of these depicted women” (coined by film theorist Laura Mulvey in her 1975 essay “Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema”)Toxic masculinity: “A cultural concept of manliness that glorifies stoicism, strength, virility, and dominance, and that is socially maladaptive or harmful to mental health”The list goes on—including technological terms (virtue signaling, crybullies), gullible gags (dad joke, womp womp, brain fart), and cultural curiosities (death cleaning, thirst trap, imposter syndrome).“If our 2019 updates ask us to accept anything,” said, “it’s that our language—as our times, will never sit still.”More on Dictionary Just Legitimized the Way You Throw Away Your WeekendsOxford Dictionary Adds New Slang, Gaming Terms, Verb Form of ‘MacGyver’QWERTY Effect: How Typing Makes Us Love Certain WOrds, Hate Others Chicanx: “Of or relating to people of Mexican-American design; used in place of the masculine form Chicano and feminine form ChicanaWomxn: “A woman; used as an alternative spelling to avoid the suggestion of sexism perceived in the sequences m-a-n and m-e-n, and to be inclusive of trans and nonbinary women” (the earlier term womyn features a similar alternative spelling)“This word [womxn] gives greater voice to gender fluidity and inclusivity in intersectional feminism,” added.The 2018 blockbuster Black Panther, meanwhile, helped give rise to a number of racially charged terms—for better and worse:Afrofuturism: “A cultural movement that uses the frame of science fiction and fantasy to reimagine the history of the African diaspora and to invoke a vision of a technically advanced and generally hopeful future in which black people thrive” (coined by author and critic Mark Dery in his 1993 essay “Black to the Future”)last_img read more

Harvey Weinstein Pleads Not Guilty To Rape Sex Charges

Harvey Weinstein Pleads Not Guilty To Rape Sex Charges

first_imgRichard Shotwell/Invision/APProducer Harvey Weinstein has been fired from The Weinstein Company in the wake of new reports documenting decades of his alleged sexual harassment of former female employees and associates, the company’s board of directors announced Sunday.Harvey Weinstein pleaded not guilty Tuesday to rape and criminal sex act charges in New York.Weinstein quietly answered a series of yes and no questions from the judge asking if he understood his rights at the hearing in Manhattan after a grand jury indicted the former movie mogul last week on charges involving two women.One alleged victim, who has not been identified publicly, told investigators that Weinstein cornered her in a hotel room and raped her. The other accuser, former actress Lucia Evans, has gone public with her account of Weinstein forcing her to perform oral sex at his office in 2004. The Associated Press does not identify alleged victims of sexual assaults unless they come forward publicly.Dozens more women have accused him of sexual misconduct ranging from harassment to assault.The 66-year-old Weinstein has denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex. His lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, has challenged the credibility of his alleged victims and says his client is confident he is going to clear his name.Brafman called the rape allegation “absurd,” saying that the accuser and Weinstein had a decadelong, consensual sexual relationship that continued after the alleged 2013 attack.Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. has said it was predictable that Weinstein’s camp would attack the integrity of the women and of the legal system.Vance, a Democrat, came under public pressure from women’s groups to prosecute Weinstein after declining to do so in 2015, when an Italian model went to police to say Weinstein had groped her during a meeting.Police set up a sting in which the woman recorded herself confronting Weinstein and him apologizing for his conduct. But Vance decided there was not enough evidence to bring charges.Weinstein is out on $1 million bail. Sharelast_img read more

Microsoft will bundle Gears of War Ultimate Edition free with Xbox One

first_imgOne of Microsoft’s big game releases for the second half of 2015 is the remaster of Gears of War. Depending on the final quality of the updated visuals, it could certainly be a system seller. But Microsoft is taking no chances and has decided to bundle the game with the purchase of a new Xbox One.When the game is released on August 25, you’ll also be able to pick up the Xbox One Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Bundle. Unfortunately, the bundle is for the 500GB Xbox One, not the recently announced 1TB edition. However, that does mean you’ll only pay $349 rather than $399. For your money you’ll get the console, the new Xbox One Wireless Controller complete with integrated headset jack, and a download copy of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. To sweeten the deal further, you’ll also gain early access to the Gears of War 4 Multiplayer Beta being held in 2016, a 14-day Xbox Live trial, and a Superstar Cole multiplayer skin.This is a pretty good deal for gamers in the market for an Xbox One, but Microsoft could have made it so much better with a couple of tweaks. The first being the bundle opting to use the 1TB Xbox, especially considering it’s a download of the game, not a disc in the box. The second is increasing the very short Xbox Live trial. Would it really hurt Microsoft to include 3 months free access to Xbox Live? That way gamers have time to really experience it and are much more likely to want to subscribe to keep using it.It’s also worth noting that developer The Coalition has confirmed the remaster will not be adding Horde Mode. There are several reasons for this, with the main ones being they didn’t want to step into Gears of War 2 territory and the fact the first game doesn’t really have enough enemy types, so Horde Mode would feel quite limited.The Xbox One Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Bundle can already be pre-ordered direct from Microsoft, but other retailers are set to offer it. Depending on who you listen to the bundle is ongoing or it’s only while stocks last in 2015. I suspect we’ll see the bundle offered at least until the end of the year.last_img read more

National Police Memorial dedicated to brave officers

National Police Memorial dedicated to brave officers

first_imgPaying a tribute to the courage and bravery of policemen, Adwaita Gadanayak, Director-General, NGMA, designed ‘National Police Memorial’, which was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on October 21, 2018. The memorial has been constructed in granite stone.Gadanayak, a sculptor and one of the most famous students of Balbir Singh Katt, designed the memorial as a memoir which makes it possible to keep past events alive in the common memory through physical representation in a public area. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfTalking about the sculptor, Gadanayak said, “I was trying to recreate the idea of selfless service which policemen on duty often are known for. My design is a tribute to the courage and the sense of bravery that is there within the policemen who died in the line of duty. I think the lives of policemen are precious, this is what I wanted to show.” The memorial takes cues from stone-building heritage and is modelled on a cenotaph– tall upright stones erected in ancient history. The policemen who visited the memorial were seeing saluting and bowing their heads in prayer and reverence. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”This is what I wanted,” said Gadanayak watching the two police officers at the memorial. “I wanted that human response of anyone coming and bowing in front of a monumental memoir.” The main structure of the memorial is a vertical 30 feet tall granite pillar that is a permanent mark – a signal of a sacred space, for an officer who is always in the line of duty. The single block of granite both polished and unpolished presents the ebony black granite as a reflection of karmic symbolism. “The one who serves is a karma yogi, truth to action is his karma and it is the fruit of this selfless action that leads him to the eternal river of life,” he added. The 20 feet of granite over which running water can be seen provides an element of continuity. “Granite as a stone is in itself a witness to human civilisation,” says Gadanayak, adding, “The language of defence of protection is as old as history and the story of dharma in the life of a policeman is clear in the names of the officers on the granite column.” There is also a small burning lamp. “The burning lamp that accompanies the elements exemplifies the living story of service,” states Gadanayak. “It symbolises ceaseless union with the spirit. Man is mortal but his actions of bravery and courage in the hour of service are immortal. The entire construction and design philosophy has been taken from the Rigveda,” he concludes.last_img read more

Rosi Garitas astrological paintings decorate the National Theater

Rosi Garitas astrological paintings decorate the National Theater

first_imgIf you stand far enough away, Rosi Garita’s paintings look like extremely stylized portraits of women. Each figure is richly colored and romantically posed, like the subjects ofGustav Klimt. The textures are sublime, and you could easily imagine each painting hanging in a funky little den. Garita’s series is handsomely displayed in the López Escarré Gallery in the café of the National Theater, the perfect décor for coffee and kibitzing.But look closer, and you’ll find that the women’s bodies are actually composed of hundreds of little faces. The faces are photographic, apparently snipped out of magazines and pasted onto the canvases. Everywhere a woman’s body is exposed, her skin is actually made of tiny human heads, like flesh-toned scales. The faces are young and old, showing every ethnicity, hairstyle and color.Look very closely, and you’ll see tiny constellations painted into the backgrounds.Garita’s series is called “Globalización Humana y Constelaciones,” which roughly translates to “Human Globalization and Constellations.” The title is unwieldy in English, and it’s perhaps a little overwrought in Spanish as well, but Garita’s intentions sound epic. According to a printed statement: “I chose the constellations because, in the Celestial Universe, they are the feminine representation, just as woman herself is the feminine representation in the Terrestrial Universe. Here we see a bridge or a very special form of communication, just as an artist, upon creating a work, creates a connection of the unconscious and the subconscious in order to create it.”Whoa, nelly. You’d be forgiven for having no idea what Garita is talking about. Depending on your aesthetic eye, you may not even notice the constellations in her portraits, much less see them as a special bridge to the Celestial Universe. Generally, visual artists should refrain from trying to verbalize their intentions, and Garita is no exception.But Garita’s work speaks wonderfully for itself, and if you find yourself in the Plaza de la Cultura between now and October, you might consider spending some time among her paintings. The face-based skins may inspire two contrasting reactions. First, you might feel inspired, because they could represent the human family, or the proverb that it takes a village to raise a child, or the fact that only women can gestate life. On the other hand, you may also feel alarmed, because scores of faces are staring back at you, and at first you didn’t even notice them. Like a Magic Eye picture, the miniature visages appear all at once. They are so smoothly incorporated into the paintings that they make you feel as if you’ve unveiled a secret.Garita is Costa Rican and Canadian, and she is both an artist and a published poet. Most of her titles have mythic names, like “Pegasus,” “Phoenix,” “Andromeda,” and “Leo,” and the astrological references are clear. One of the most interesting portraits is “Scorpius,” which incorporates Chinese characters and what appear to be diagrammatical notes. Whatever her original objective, the paintings have a mysterious quality, as if, like the stars, each must be decoded for hidden meaning. Like great verse, a good painting get more complex the more you look at it. So get close. There’s always more to see.“Globalización Humana y Constelaciones” continues through Oct. 3at the López Ecarré Gallery, National Theater, downtown San José. Mon.-Sat., 9 a.m.–7 p.m. Free.
