Pioneering animator Brenda Chapman brings Spark to festival

first_imgAdvertisement Login/Register With: Advertisement Facebook Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment On the phone from her hometown of Beason, Ill., where she just launched a film festival, Chapman cut to the chase about a key element of her contribution to the conversation on Friday (5:45 p.m., at VIFF Vancity Theatre, 1181 Seymour St.) with Warner Animation Group executive producer Jinko Gotoh, titled The Global Landscape of Animated Features.“I’m sure that women in film will be discussed as well as what is out there and coming on the creative side and from where,” said Chapman. “But increasingly my goal these days is to inspire young people to work for their dreams. Not just to dream them but to actually achieve them, because this business is really hard and you have to never forget to go for what you have passion for.” Twitter Brenda Chapman‘s resumé reads like a “best of” list for animated features. The American animation story artist, writer and director is the first woman to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature as a director of Brave (in 2012). She was also one of the first to land a directing role for a feature by major studio. A shortlist of her credits includes The Prince of Egypt, The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Chicken Run and Who Framed Roger Rabbit.Small surprise that she is speaking at the business symposium for Spark Animation 2016. Reflecting the size and scope of the local animation industry, the annual event has grown into a three-prong affair.The festival also includes an industry conference at the Wall Centre as well as the animation festival. That opens Thursday with the Canadian theatrical premiere of Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, the precursor to the super-hyped Final Fantasy XV video game. A full program of features and shorts is screening at the event.last_img read more

Unistoten Camp will have to wait until Friday for injunction decision

first_imgFreda Huson and Warner Naziel outside the courthouse in Prince George, B.C. (Submitted photo)Kathleen MartensAPTN NewsA B.C. judge has reserved her decision on whether to grant an injunction against members of a Wet’suwet’en clan so the $40-billion LNG Canada project can proceed.Justice Marguerite Church put the matter over to Friday afternoon, said Warner Naziel of the Unist’ot’en Camp south of Houston, B.C.“She asked for an argument against an injunction,” Naziel said Thursday after attending the first day of the court hearing.“Our lawyer stated that it is a constitutional issue which affects the outcome of the Delgamuukw decision.”Delganuukw was a 1984 case launched by leaders of the Wet’suwet’en and Gitxsan First Nations, who took the provincial government to court to establish jurisdiction over land and water in northwest B.C.Now they are relying on Delgamuukw again, said Naziel who is named with his partner Freda Huson in the injunction and civil suit filed by TransCanada subsidiary Coastal GasLink.“We are trying to decolonize something that offers a privileged lifestyle to so many settlers,” he added in an interview.The Unist’ot’en house of the Wet’suwet’en clan system built the camp to offer addiction treatment and assert jurisdiction on land they say they were displaced from.The Unist’ot’en Camp blocks the Morice River bridge with this locked gate. (APTN/Kathleen Martens photo)It has also served to keep development away.“The Unist’ot’en Camp is not a blockade, a protest or a demonstration,” the camp said on its Facebook page, “it is a permanent, non-violent occupation of Unist’ot’en territory, established to protect our homelands from illegal industrial encroachments and to preserve a space for our community to heal from the violence of colonization.”At least until now.“A delayed decision is often a good sign,” Naziel said, noting all the hereditary chiefs were in court to lend their support.Coastal GasLink wants access to the Morice River bridge its said in a statement to APTN News, to get to the site of its pipeline one kilometre away from the camp for fieldwork.It is also claiming general, exemplary and punitive damages, costs and interest.It said in a release the legal action was “a last resort” after years of “attempting the engage the blockade” to reach a solution.“The Coastal GasLink team would like to thank each of the local communities and the First Nations groups along our pipeline route for their continued support through this process, including the elected band chiefs, their councils and the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs who do support our pipeline,” the company said in a statement.But the camp said in a statement the injunction application and civil suit “aims to criminalize Unist’ot’en Camp and forcibly facilitate pipeline construction across unceded Unist’ot’en territory.”kmartens@aptn.ca@katmartelast_img read more

United Airlines extends cancellation of Boeing Max flights

United Airlines is cancelling another month’s worth of flights with Boeing 737 Max planes that were grounded after two deadly accidents.United said Friday it has removed the Max from its schedule through Aug. 3 and will cancel about 2,400 flights in June and July as a result. It had previously cancelled all Max flights through early July.Southwest and American have already dropped the Max from their schedules into August.Boeing is making changes to flight-control software that investigators believe played a role in crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia that together killed 346 people.The acting chief of the Federal Aviation Administration declined this week to say how long it will take his agency to analyze Boeing’s changes and allow the plane to fly again.The Associated Press

FactCheck How many new social housing units did the government provide last

first_img Share8 Tweet Email Tuesday 28 Feb 2017, 12:01 AM FactCheck: How many new social housing units did the government provide last year? In the second instalment of our two-part series, FactCheck referees an on-air dispute between Damien English and Eoin Ó Broin. LAST WEEK SAW two high-profile rows between the government and opposition over what’s being done to increase the provision of social housing in Ireland.On Thursday afternoon, Fianna Fáil’s Barry Cowen and Tánaiste Frances Fitzgerald clashed in the Dáil over the number of social housing units currently being built.And on Thursday’s Tonight With Vincent Browne, Sinn Féin’s Eoin Ó Broin and Fine Gael Junior Minister Damien English accused each other of not telling the truth over the number of new social housing units provided last year.In a two-part series, TheJournal.ie‘s FactCheck responds to reader requests, and steps in to resolve both disputes and find the truth of the matter.On Sunday, we dealt with Cowen and Fitzgerald’s row in the Dáil, and today, we’ll referee Ó Broin and English’s on-air argument.(Send your FactCheck requests to factcheck@thejournal.ie, tweet @TJ_FactCheck, or send us a DM).Claim 1: Around 6,000 new social housing units were provided in 2016 – Damien EnglishWhat was said: Source: TheJournal.ie/YouTubeIn the video above, you can watch an excerpt from the exchange on Tonight With Vincent Browne. You can also watch the episode in full here.We’re focusing first on Damien English’s claim, and will examine Eoin Ó Broin’s claim later on. Damien English: Between house purchase, between construction, between buys being brought back in, there was about 6,000 new, additional social housing supply into the market [in 2016].The FactsIn response to our request for evidence, a spokesperson at the Department of Housing, where Damien English is Minister of State for Housing and Urban Renewal, stated that:5,292 new social housing units were delivered in 2016Of these, 652 were new builds2,300 were refurbished vacant homes1,552 were acquired (bought) by local authorities or AHBs (approved housing bodies)788 were leased by local authorities from private ownersThis amounts to 5,292 new units, but the spokesperson argued that continued spending in 2017 had brought “unit delivery since January 2016 close to 6,000 new social housing units”.The spokesperson did not state the number of new social housing units provided in 2017 so far.Furthermore, any social housing provision in 2017 is irrelevant to Damien English’s claim, which related specifically and exclusively to 2016.Claim 2: Around 4,000 new social housing units were provided in 2016 – Eoin Ó Broin Source: TV3.ieWhat was said:If you take all of the new council and Approved Housing Body houses, and if you take the vacant ones that were refurbished, it was 4,000, and that is nowhere near enough. Feb 28th 2017, 12:01 AM 26 Comments Find more FactChecks here Short URLcenter_img TheJournal.ie’s FactCheck is a signatory to the International Fact-Checking Network’s Code of Principles. You can read it here.For information on how FactCheck works, what the verdicts mean, and how you can take part, check out our Reader’s Guide here. …There were 2,204 new social houses, between the new builds and the acquisitions.And there were 2,300 refurbished, long-term voids, so it’s just over 4,000.The FactsIn response to our request for evidence, Eoin Ó Broin cited this document, which accompanied the Department of Housing’s most recent social housing construction status report, and was published last Monday.It gave the same figures provided by Damien English’s spokesperson at the Department of Housing.However, Ó Broin excluded the 788 units that were leased from private owners by local authorities.This leaves us with 4,504 new social housing units in 2016.Ó Broin, who is Sinn Féin’s spokesperson on housing, stated on Tonight With Vincent Browne that the total was “just over 4,000″, but told FactCheck he acknowledged it was around 4,500.Assessment Source: Department of HousingWhat this comes down to is what you include and exclude from the overall count of new social housing units, so let’s examine that.New builds are, as you may have imagined, newly constructed homes designed for use as social housing. They are publicly owned and add to the social housing stock when they’re finished.Voids are units that were previously used for social housing, but have been vacant for an extended period of time and are no longer in use. When they are refurbished, they are made available as social housing stock again. While technically speaking they are not new units, they are often accepted as such, because before their refurbishment, they were not in use as social housing.Acquisitions are private units that, in essence, are purchased by local authorities or AHBs, for use as social housing. When they’re bought, they become publicly owned, and are made available as social housing stock.Leasing involves local authorities leasing homes from private owners for between 10 and 20 years, for use as social housing. When homes are leased by local authorities, they become available for social housing, but not permanently, and they remain privately owned.RAS (the Rental Accommodation Scheme) is run by local authorities and is available to people on rent supplement for 18 months or more, considered to be in long-term housing need. Local authorities pay a tenant’s rent to a private landlord, and tenants pay a portion of this to local authorities. Availing of RAS takes you off the local authority housing list.HAP (the Housing Assistance Payment) is similar to RAS. Local authorities subsidise rent for tenants, but tenants remain contracted directly with their landlord. Receipt of HAP removes you from the local authority housing list.RAS and HAP are temporary arrangements between landlords, tenants and local authorities, and don’t add to the social housing stock, which is why neither Eoin Ó Broin nor Damien English included them in their figures.New builds, refurbished voids and acquisitions do effectively add to the social housing stock, which is why both included them in their figures.The leasing scheme essentially gives the state use of a home for social housing, for between 10 and 20 years, but ownership stays in the private sector.Eoin Ó Broin told FactCheck he excluded the 788 units leased by local authorities in 2016 in part because public ownership is part of the definition of social housing.There is no fixed, universal definition of social housing, but it’s true that it is widely understood as involving public or non-profit ownership and/or management of housing.With that in mind, let’s turn again to the numbers.Damien English put the number of new social housing units in 2016 at “about 6,000″. His spokesperson claimed this included additional provision since the start of 2017 – something that should immediately be disregarded.If we include the 788 units leased by local authorities, as he advocates, this means he over-stated the case by a factor of 13%. If we exclude those 788 leased units, English overstated the case by a factor of 33%.Eoin Ó Broin put the number of new social housing units in 2016 at “just over 4,000″, (though in response to FactCheck’s queries, he increased that to 4,500).If we include the 788 leased units, this means Eoin Ó Broin, on Tonight With Vincent Browne, understated the case by a factor of at most 24%. (On air, he did in one instance stipulate “just over 4,000″).If we exclude those 788 leased units, as he advocates, it means Ó Broin understated the case by at most 11%.Conclusion Source: TV3.ieThe correct number is either 4,504 or 5,292, depending on whether you regard homes leased from the private sector on a long-term basis as being “new social housing units”.It should be noted that social housing is widely understood to involve public or non-profit ownership as a prerequisite.However, in the absence of a fixed, legal definition of what does and doesn’t count as “social housing”, FactCheck cannot make a determination on that.Which leaves us with a comparison of the numbers. On air, Damien English overstated the case by either 13 or 33%, depending on whether you include leased units.There is an arguable justification for a claim that 5,292 new social housing units were produced last year, and although the claim of 6,000 includes estimates from 2017 (something that is irrelevant here), it’s not far off 5,292.We rate his claim Half-TRUE.This is the first time we’ve fact-checked a claim by Damien English. In future, you’ll be able to find his FactCheck File here.And on air, Eoin Ó Broin understated the case by either 11 or 24%, depending on whether you include leased units.There is an arguable justification for a claim that 4,504 new social housing units were produced last year, and “just over 4,000″ is not far off that figure.We also rate his claim Half-TRUE.This is also the first time we’ve fact-checked a claim by Eoin Ó Broin.

Scott said. Young children — and in one case, a pregnant woman — were detected among people trying to enter the U.S. through “a dark, treacherous canyon that is notorious for human and drug smuggling,”he said.No estimate was given for how many people from the caravan attempted to cross the border illegally in the last 24 hours.Another 345 individuals from the caravan have arrived in Tijuana. Of those, the Los Angeles Times reported that “no more than 200 of the group will go to the Tijuana-San Diego crossing and request U.S. protection.”Caravan organizers with Pueblo Sin Fronteras told the Times that the migrants are asylum-seekers fleeing from dangers in their home countries. The group plans to approach the San Ysidro Port of Entry on Sunday.The caravan has been making national headlines for the past month after catching the attention of President Donald Trump. It first began with about 1,000 people March 25 in the Mexican city of Tapachula, near the Guatemala border, drawing comments from Trump as evidence of what he and his aides portrayed as a significant threat, the Post reported.“If anyone has encouraged you to illegally enter the United States, or make any false statements to U.S. government officials, they are giving you bad advice and they are placing you and your family at risk,” he said.  “We are a very welcoming country but just like your own house, we expect everyone to enter through our front door and answer questions honestly. On a nationallevel that front door is the Ports of Entry. If you enter the United States at any place other than a Port of Entry it is a crime,” Scott said.“During the last month, we have endured a long and hard journey across Mexico, fighting for a safe and dignified life. The unity that we have built through this caravan has been the only way to find peace, which we did not have before. Now that our journey is ending, we demand that our rights as refugees, migrants and human beings be respected,” a statement by the refugee caravan said.

Panasonic preps for WiGig era of content exchange

first_imgThe demo shows a passenger transferring media from the tablet to a display mounted in the passenger seat. An exchange of content also takes place from the car’s computer over to the tablet; the passenger checks out auto information such as readings on tire pressure and battery capacity.Panasonic is one of the companies that have been participating in the WiGig Alliance of companies, an alliance making a big push to advocate a wireless gigabit standard and to promote a strong ecosystem of interoperable devices. Panasonic is on the Alliance’s board of directors, along with other big industry names such as Dell, Intel, Cisco, Broadcom, and Microsoft. The shared understanding among the Alliance companies is that the technology marketplace is no longer just about Internet connectivity but device connectivity, as more consumers own multiple devices and seek fast, efficient data transfers from one device to another. The Alliance is not new; it was formed back in 2009 but observers note that the time appears ripe to turn up the volume in promoting WiGig’s commercial growth. The Alliance has worked on a unified specification for 60 GHz wireless technologies, to make it possible for multi-gigabit wireless connectivity among PCs, handhelds and a range of devices under the umbrella of consumer electronics. A WiGig MAC specification was published in June last year. The standard is in draft stage with the IEEE as 802.11ad. Some technologists prefer to note the limitations as well as benefits to come; the wireless technologies will offer higher data rates than 802.11ac, but at short distances – and where walls, ceilings and other obstructions don’t hinder the path. A benefit of operating at 60 GHz is availability.According to the Alliance, “60 GHz is the ultimate complement to both 2.4 and 5 GHz. The 60 GHz band simply has much more bandwidth available (7-9 GHz of spectrum) vs. 83.5 MHz in the 2.4 GHz band, which enables much higher data rates.” The organization intends to provide a certification mark, which will show consumers that products have passed interoperability testing. Panasonic meanwhile is in the process of prototyping the WiGig-enabled SD card, which it aims to commercialize for vehicle usage in summer 2013. That seems to mesh with the Alliance prediction that it expects “wide availability” of WiGig-enabled devices in 2013. According to Ars Technica, the spec is still undergoing some fine-tuning at IEEE. The film shows what a day in the life of a car passenger might be with the help of a tablet, WiGig-enabled SD memory card, and automobile computer screen. © 2011 PhysOrg.com This document is subject to copyright.

Colin has Eli Mannings back

first_imgJohn Calipari should get credit for changing livesColin has been critical of Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari on numerous occasions, but today he wanted to give him credit.Last night’s 30 for 30, One and Not Done, showed how Coach Cal changed college basketball by putting kids into the pros faster than ever. Many view Calipari as the embodiment of everything that’s wrong with college basketball. Colin thinks he deserves credit for changing lives for kids and their families by encouraging to pursue their career in the NBA instead of giving them a guilt trip.If a kid can go to the NBA after a year and Coach Cal helps them get there, he’s doing what’s best for their family, not his.Guests:Metta World Peace – NBA veteran is in-studio to discuss parting ways with the Lakers; his warm reception from Laker fans in his final game as a Laker; and his take on the NBA Playoffs.Aaron Torres – Fox Sports College Basketball writer and author of One and Fun: – — is in-studio to react to the 30 for 30 on Coach Cal; how he presented both sides of Coach Cal in his book; and how Caipari talked Boogie Cousins out of returning to Kentucky.Doug Gottlieb – Host of The Doug Gottlieb Show joins the show to talk Coach Cal; the effect of the one-and-done culture on college basketball; why Colin Is wrong on LeBron for MVP.Chris Broussard – FS1 NBA Insider joins the show to talk about Adam Silver’s comments on players resting; why Silver is wrong that players don’t decide when they sit; his take on Phil Jackson’s comments the Knicks would be better off without Carmelo; and his NBA 1st round playoff picks.

It’s laughable to hear people in the sports memorabilia calling Manning out for a lack of integrity. The industry is filled with middle-aged frauds and creeps who chase down grown men in hotel lobbies for autographs.Eli Manning isn’t the problem. The fake outrage industry is the problem.

Housing Demand Reverses After Five Months of Gains

first_img June 28, 2016 549 Views Share in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News Housing Demand Redfin 2016-06-28 Seth Welborncenter_img After five months on the climb, and while housing scarcity inflates, housing demand fell off by 5.3 percent in May, according to the latest Redfin Housing Demand Index. May’s index of 114 marks the sixth straight month of year-over-year declines.“Faced with a diminishing number of homes to choose from, 4.5 percent fewer people wrote offers last month than a year earlier,” the report stated.Meanwhile, tours by prospective buyers went way up in May, increasing 18 percent compared to a year ago, though down slightly from April’s 20 percent.”Two of the fundamental drivers of buyer demand are better this year than last year, yet we still saw retrenchment in buyer interest retreat,” said Redfin chief economist Nela Richardson. “Thirty-year mortgage rates are at three-year lows and the unemployment rate is down to 4.7 percent nationally, compared to 5.5 percent last year. However, steady job growth and low rates are no match for the drought in available homes for sale, which stifled buyer demand.””Two of the fundamental drivers of buyer demand are better this year than last year, yet we still saw retrenchment in buyer interest retreat.”Nela Richardson, Chief Economist, RedfinAlso according to the report, sale prices are increasingly exceeding asking prices. Nearly 29 percent of homes sold for more than their asking prices, up from 26.8 percent last year and the largest portion recorded since 2013, the report found.For houses that did sell, May “was a record breaker in terms of speed and intensity,” the report stated. Houses in May sold at their fastest pace since 2009, with the typical home on the market for only 15 days last month‒‒two days faster than last year.The effects on some areas are actually stymieing growth in what should be healthy markets.In Denver, for example, the typical home sold in just five days in May, the fastest pace in the country. However, Redfin reported, this swift current has created a lackluster market, due to the extreme scarcity of homes for sale.“The root of Denver’s inventory shortage this year is that move-up buyers can’t move up because there’s nothing for them to buy,” said Redfin agent Michelle Ackerman. “They’re fearful of selling their homes and having nowhere to go.” Housing Demand Reverses After Five Months of Gainslast_img read more

first_img (Via IMDB) No laughing matter: When exactly did clowns become scary? by Mark Kennedy, The Associated Press Posted Mar 24, 2018 9:11 am PDT Last Updated Mar 24, 2018 at 10:24 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – His nose was round and bright red, his face as white as a sheet. His mouth was surrounded by an exaggerated smear of red makeup and his arched eyebrows hung ridiculously high on his forehead.Such was the daily uniform of Bozo the Clown, who entertained kids for decades when TV was in its infancy. It’s also a uniform that for many now seems grotesque and sinister.The death of longtime Bozo performer Frank Avruch this week triggered both feelings — warm memories from some and a shiver of fear from others who associate clowns more with the film “It.”Which begs the question: When exactly did clowns go from birthday-party goofy to downright sinister? Well, hold onto your really big shoes — experts are divided.David Carlyon, author, playwright and a former clown with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus in the 1970s, argues that the fear of clowns — known officially as coulrophobia — is a relatively new phenomenon, born from the counter-culture 1960s and emerging as a popular force in the 1980s.“There is no ancient fear of clowns,” he said. “It wasn’t like there was this panic rippling through Madison Square Garden as I walked up through the seats. Not at all.”Carlyon said clowns were considered sweet and funny for two centuries until an inevitable backlash that included Stephen King’s hit novel “It,” the film “Poltergeist,” Heath Ledger’s white-faced maniac Joker, the misanthrope Krusty the Clown from “The Simpsons,” the shock band Insane Clown Posse and Homey D. Clown from “In Living Color.”“Anything that gets that much glorification and is sentimentalized within an inch of its life invites someone to snark at it,” said Carlyon, who recently discovered the cover of a National Lampoon from 1979 with a girl cowering in fear of a malevolent clown.“There’s nothing in any available evidence that kids were afraid of clowns in the ’40s, the ’50s, the ’60s, the ’70s,” he said. “Who said that about Red Skelton?”Not so fast, argues Benjamin Radford, an author and editor at Skeptical Inquirer magazine who literally wrote the book on the subject, 2016’s “Bad Clowns.” Not to throw a pie in anyone’s face, but he argues that evil clowns have always been among us.“It’s a mistake to ask when clowns turned bad because historically they were never really good. They’ve always had this deeply ambiguous character,” he said.“Sometimes they’re good; sometimes they’re bad. Sometimes they’re making you laugh. Other times, they’re laughing at your expense.”Radford traces bad clowns all the way to ancient Greece and connects them to court jesters and the Harlequin figure. He notes that Punch, an evil puppet who frequently smacks his partner Judy with a stick, made his first appearance in London in the 1500s. “You have this mass-murdering, baby-killing clown that’s beloved by Britons everywhere of all ages,” he said.Clowns in America had their roots in circuses and they were at first meant to amuse adults, but clowning history took a detour in the 1950s and ’60s when the squeaky-clean Bozo and Ronald McDonald became the “quintessentially American default clowns” for kids, Radford said.The more sinister clown waited patiently for his day to shine. “Stephen King didn’t invent the evil clown. That was long before his time. But what he did was turn the coin over, if you will,” Radford said.Even if there’s debate on the issue, Radford paid homage to Avruch, the first nationally syndicated incarnation of the iconic Bozo. Without virtuous clowns like him to lay the foundation, the bad ones make no sense.“The fact is that we need both bad and good clowns because without the good clowns like Bozo, there’s no contrast, there’s no tension to make the evil or scary clowns entertaining or interesting,” Radford said.___Mark Kennedy is at http://twitter.com/KennedyTwits Bozo the Clown|clown|Frank Avruchlast_img read more

first_img FILE – In this Monday, Sept. 10, 2018 file photo, U2 singer Bono waves good-bye to the media after a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron at the Elysee Palace in Paris, France. Trump has sought to slash hundreds of millions from U.S. funding for AIDS programs, but Bono tells The Associated Press that members of Congress, “right and left,” have so far turned him down. (AP Photo/Michel Euler, File) Bono to Congress: Thanks for ignoring Trump on AIDS funding by Jill Lawless, The Associated Press Posted Nov 5, 2018 5:59 am PDT Last Updated Nov 5, 2018 at 8:20 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img LONDON – Bono has a message for the U.S. Congress: Thanks for ignoring President Donald Trump.Trump has sought to slash hundreds of millions of dollars from U.S. funding for AIDS programs at home and abroad, but the U2 frontman says members of Congress “have so far turned down this president’s request to cut AIDS funding — right and left in lockstep together on this.”His message to them? “Thank you for your leadership.”Bono is caught between hope and frustration as — for the third time in a decade — he organizes an auction to raise money for the fight against HIV/AIDS. Sotheby’s announced details Monday of the Dec. 5 sale in Miami to benefit (RED), the charity founded by Bono in 2006.Two previous sales, in 2008 and 2013, raised $68 million. Five years on from the last, Bono says big strides in prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS are threatened by a slackening of global resolve.“We could be at the dumbest moment ever, which is we’re almost at the moon and we turn back,” Bono told The Associated Press by phone from Dublin.Almost 37 million people worldwide have HIV, with nearly 22 million of them receiving antiretroviral therapy, the most effective form of treatment, according to UNAIDS. The number of annual infections has fallen by almost half since 1996, to 1.8 million, and the number of deaths has halved since 2004.Bono says the results are the product of “incredible leadership from around the world” that has made the elimination of the disease a realistic prospect.“There’s this gathering consensus and momentum — and now people are looking the other way, and it’s just the wrong moment,” he said.To help draw attention back to the cause, Bono turned to two influential artists whose work, he says, “has a social-justice core.” The auction is curated by British architect David Adjaye, who designed the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., and U.S. artist Theaster Gates, who runs artistic and social projects from his base on Chicago’s south side.Adopting the theme “light,” the pair has assembled more than 50 lots from artists, architects and designers, including Ai Weiwei, Jeff Koons, Yinka Shonibare and Sean Scully. Design pieces include sneakers by Christian Louboutin; a curvy coffee table by the late Zaha Hadid; and a ring carved from a whole diamond, created by Apple Inc. design chief Jony Ive and industrial designer Mark Newson.Adjaye is offering items he’s designed including a concrete speaker — in red, naturally — and Gates has contributed one of a series of tapestries made from strips of used fire hose.“We wanted to re-shed light on this subject matter, metaphorically,” said Adjaye, who also worries that the world’s attention has strayed from AIDS, and other crises.“I think our collective sense of civil society is very much under siege,” he said. “That creates a kind of ‘not my problem’ attitude, and I think we have to counter that.”Money raised by the auction will go to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and to Gates’ Rebuild Foundation, which works with deprived communities in Chicago.One criticism sometimes made of charities like (RED), which has persuaded big companies including Bank of America, Starbucks and Apple to promote AIDS awareness, is that its work lets politicians and governments off the hook.Bono argues that “the point is to put them back on the hook.”“Making something popular makes the politicians have to pay attention,” he said. “And we’re going to need that more than ever” in an era of growing nationalism.“Women are the rising category (of infections) at the moment, and whilst the world is looking the other way in this rather childish fight among strongmen across the world, these budgets are being cut and women are paying the highest price.“It’s really deeply upsetting for us all,” he added. “Because we were really getting excited. We thought, we’re at the point of inflection. And now we hear, ‘No, no. We’re going to cut these budgets.’ It’s not just America. A lot of countries are putting themselves first. At least they think it’s first — but as you know global health crises don’t respect borders.”Artworks in the auction will be exhibited by Gagosian at the Moore Building in Miami from Dec. 1 to Dec. 7. They will be sold in a live auction Dec. 5 and an online sale that is open for bidding Nov. 12-Dec. 7.___Follow Jill Lawless on Twitter at http://Twitter.com/JillLawlesslast_img read more

its difficult to create a distinction between allowing a photograph of a nude child in one instance and not others. I have the absolute right to PARDON myself,上海龙凤论坛Lionel, North Korea’s longest-range missiles, losing out to Alessia Cara as new artist, "A lot of streets I recognize, to occur at the Salk Institute” Citing legal and privacy constraints Salk declined to answer Science’s questions about certain specific allegations It would not say how many complaints about sexual harassment by Verma it has received nor what discipline if any it has imposed on him However its statement to Science said “Salk has not condoned—and will not condone—any findings of inappropriate conduct in the workplace regardless of one’s stature or influence” It continued: “Salk has had and has enforced policies prohibiting sexual harassment for decades … These policies are reviewed regularly and have been updated numerous times over the years” The institute also noted that it “requires that employees periodically attend anti-harassment and discrimination training” The allegations come as the research institute founded in 1960 by polio vaccine inventor Jonas Salk defends itself against gender discrimination lawsuits filed last summer by three of its senior female scientists The scientists allege that they were denied lab space and personnel career advancement and funding opportunities because they are women Two lawsuits accuse Verma by name In December 2017 he was suspended as editor-in-chief of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) until issues raised by the lawsuits are resolved I have never inappropriately touched nor have I made any sexually charged comments to anyone affiliated with the Salk Institute Inder Verma Salk Institute for Biological Studies Verma—the highest-paid scientist at Salk in its 2015 fiscal year earning $406000—remained a power there until last week He chaired and served on faculty promotion and search committees He exerted influence on internal funding decisions On 20 April he was slated to be on a panel at Salk with former Vice President Joe Biden promoting a Salk cancer research initiative—but he was dropped at the last moment “They used to call Salk ‘Inder’s institute’” recalls a young woman who alleges that she experienced unwanted touching and sexual comments from Verma when she worked at Salk during the past 10 years The lab tech Verma a native of Sangrur India was hired by Salk in 1974 at age 26 after completing a PhD at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot Israel and a postdoctoral fellowship in the lab of David Baltimore who was then at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge During Verma’s first 4 years at Salk he published 16 papers many reporting discoveries about reverse transcriptase the enzyme that enables retroviruses to insert their genetic material into cells’ DNA Eight were co-authored with Baltimore who shared the 1975 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his discovery of the enzyme Verma was promoted to associate professor in 1979 one step short of earning tenure in the Salk system In May 1976 Leslie Jerominski now a senior laboratory specialist at the University of Utah Hospitals and Clinics in Salt Lake City got a job as a technician in Verma’s lab She was 24 Within a couple months of hiring her Jerominski says Verma asked her to play tennis at nearby UCSD After their match Jerominski says she stood preparing to change in a common break room with a private bathroom at Salk She alleges that Verma grabbed her hugged her tried to kiss her—she turned her head aside—and asked her out to dinner “I told him to quit” she recalls “I felt scared angry and disappointed” Jerominski did not report the incident which was not repeated “I was very young and I felt really privileged to be working at the Salk Institute So I kind of let it go” But she remained on the alert until she left Salk in October 1977 “I never put myself in a position when I was alone in a room with him ever again … I hated the fact that I always had to be on guard” Another technician in Verma’s lab in that era remembers being warned by other women not to be alone with him “It was a culture of ‘Be careful’” she says “It was understood” A female trainee in a different Salk lab at the time recalls “He had a habit of following women into the darkroom I made sure when I was going in he didn’t know” The junior cancer biologist By the mid-1980s Verma’s lab was a world leader in its field Verma had assembled a small talented group of scientists who uncovered the structure of certain retroviruses and revealed how they co-opted oncogenes to cause cancer The team also led the development of retroviruses as vectors to deliver DNA for gene therapy In 1984 alone Verma published nine papers in Cell Science and Nature and was senior author on five of them In 1985 Salk promoted him to full professor Inder Verma at a meeting at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York in 1986 the year after he was promoted to full professor at the Salk Institute Two women allege he made unwanted physical advances around this time Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory In 1988 the year Verma turned 41 the National Cancer Institute asked him and Jean Wang then a 36-year-old assistant professor studying cancer biology at UCSD to help review a program at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston Verma chaired the site review team Thrilled to be selected as a reviewer Wang wore her favorite professional dress from Talbots It was calf-length and blue with irregular white dots and a white Peter Pan collar The group stayed at an Embassy Suites hotel on the Charles River she recalls After an intense daylong assessment at Dana-Farber Wang had just returned to her room when the phone rang It was Verma she says asking her to come to his room to discuss an important matter regarding the site visit When Verma opened the door Wang says she saw champagne chilling on ice beyond him She alleges that Verma closed the door behind her sat on a couch in the front room of the suite and asked her to sit on his lap Stunned and fearful of angering him she complied “He started to ask me about my ex-boyfriend my sex life who I was going out with” she says She parried with pointed questions about his wife and daughter whom she had met at a party at his home not long before She told him repeatedly that she would like to leave and after about 5 minutes she did so Back in her room she took a long shower “I wanted to wash away the humiliation” Wang says She threw the dress in the trash in disgust knowing she would not wear it again When she returned to San Diego “I didn’t say a word” Wang says She blamed herself for going to Verma’s hotel room and she feared both others’ judgment of her and retaliation by Verma She was an obscure nontenured assistant professor She remembers thinking that if she told others “He’s going to hurt me I need grants” Wang did however begin counseling female UCSD students who proposed to do research at Salk 2 kilometers away not to work with Verma In the mid-1990s she told her husband Richard Kolodner about the incident (He confirmed that report to Science) And whenever she ran into Verma at seminars and meetings “I actively avoided him each time and made sure that I showed my disgust with my body language” Wang says Wang is now a distinguished professor emeritus in the department of medicine at UCSD Three decades later she still feels shame and anger about that 5-minute episode She is speaking up now she says because “I just can’t keep it in anymore The #MeToo movement opened my wound I had to take this opportunity to tell my story so that I could hopefully close that wound and forgive myself” The Salk assistant professor Verma and his wife (he has been married since 1973) have long been known as congenial generous hosts In the 1980s they often invited Salk colleagues to their spacious home in suburban Solana Beach California At one hot crowded party there in the late 1980s Pamela Mellon an assistant professor at Salk who was studying how gene transcription is regulated stepped into the dark quiet backyard to cool off Mellon then in her mid-30s was standing with her back to the house admiring the hilly vista when she says Verma’s arms suddenly encircled her from behind pinning her arms to her side as he grabbed her breasts “I was shocked and struggled to get rid of his arms” Mellon says That failed she says Next “I just kicked him in the shin backwards And he let go” Upset she left the party immediately She told no one about the incident and dealt with it by avoiding Verma who was not in her department and had no direct authority over her But a year or two later Verma was appointed chairman of the committee deciding whether Mellon should be promoted from assistant to associate professor Distraught that the man whose advances she had rebuffed would be chairing that committee she took her situation to the director of human resources She recalls him telling her that she needed counseling and refusing to take up the incident with Verma (That now-retired Salk staffer did not respond to two letters and a phone message requesting an interview) Once you start making surprise aggressive advances especially toward people of lower status especially if they’re at the same institution—that clearly crosses the line Cathy Young media fellow at the Cato Institute in Washington DC Salk wrote in an email last week: “The Institute does not have a record of any report given to Human Resources of this nature during [Mellon’s] employment at Salk” It added: “When Salk officials have been made aware of allegations of inappropriate conduct by an employee the Institute has investigated and responded as appropriate” Next Mellon turned to Salk professor Tony Hunter whom she knew from shared interests in whitewater rafting and retrovirology She implored him to remove Verma from the promotion committee Without asking her why she was so uncomfortable with Verma in that role Mellon recalls Hunter arranged to take Verma’s place as chairman of the committee “Tony took me seriously and he fixed it” Mellon says (Hunter declined repeated interview requests) Mellon was promoted In 1992 she left Salk for a tenured position at UCSD where today she studies how the brain controls reproduction One woman who worked at Salk at the time who declined to be named for fear of career repercussions says she recalls the day Verma told her that Mellon had left Salk “He was like ‘Mellons has left’ And I said ‘Mellons’ And he said ‘Pam Mellon you know her big breasts look like watermelons’” “I was just in shock” says the woman who adds that she felt too intimidated to respond with anything but silence The postdoctoral student Monica Zoppè was 31 years old when she became a postdoc in Verma’s lab late in 1992 A newcomer to the United States she was excited to work in the lab of a pioneer in gene transfer A few weeks after her arrival Verma offered her a ride home She didn’t have a car and gratefully accepted “During the trip he said ‘I don’t know what I’m going home to do nobody is there’” Zoppè recalls Pleased with the chance to discuss her research with him she invited him in for a cup of tea Zoppè shared the house with two roommates Neither was home “As soon as he stepped in the house he tried to kiss me very very abruptly” Zoppè says Shocked and outraged she shoved him away Struggling for words in her uncertain English she said at first “Let’s go” Verma’s face lit up Zoppè recalls She corrected herself: “You go” He went The next day Zoppè confronted Verma she says In a statement she set down 3 years later when she briefly considered taking legal action against Salk or Verma she wrote “He assured me that he had never done anything like this before and he would never do it again … [He] asked me not to talk to anybody about this ‘incident’” Because she had taken Salk’s sexual harassment training which urged reporting of such incidents Zoppè says she complained to human resources at Salk a few days later (A former Salk employee who declined to be named confirmed the complaint and the subsequent investigation to Science) Zoppè says Salk offered to move her to a lab at UCSD; she refused feeling that if anyone should move it should be Verma Several days later she recalls the human resources director—the same man whom Mellon had approached a few years earlier—called her at home to tell her she should stay home that day and continue to stay home until she heard back from human resources because Verma was going to be told of her complaint and would be angry Within another few days Zoppè says Verma “apologized very coldly for what he did He assured me he was not mad at me which was clearly a lie” If an experiment didn’t work I was incompetent Any time I would say something in a lab meeting according to Inder I was wrong Monica Zoppè molecular and cell biologist at the Institute of Clinical Physiology in Pisa Italy In her statement from the mid-1990s Zoppè adds that human resources “told me that [Verma] would be requested to undergo psychological counseling … and that if anybody asked I should say I know nothing about it” (As with all specific allegations about its handling of complaints Salk had no comment on the details of Zoppè’s account) According to Zoppè Verma routinely disparaged her science after she complained “If an experiment didn’t work I was incompetent Any time I would say something in a lab meeting according to Inder I was wrong” Another postdoc in Verma’s lab at the time who declined to be named for fear of professional retaliation confirmed to Science that after the complaint Verma “was overly and openly aggressive in criticizing” Zoppè at a lab meeting Paolo Remondelli now a cell biologist at the University of Salerno in Fisciano Italy was working in a UCSD lab in the early 1990s and shared a house with Zoppè for 18 months beginning soon after the alleged incident In an interview with Science he recalled what he described as Zoppè’s “distress” about her relationship with Verma after she complained about him to Salk “It was clearly something that compromised her relationship with him” Remondelli said “She didn’t work with calm She was not quiet It was damaging It was compromising her career” Zoppè completed her postdoc she says because she had strong support from others in Verma’s lab She left in 1996 for a position in Milan Italy The senior Salk colleague Inder Verma receives a $100000 prize from The Vilcek Foundation in New York City in 2008 The award honors outstanding contributions to biomedical research by immigrants to the United States Matt Carasella/Patrick McMullan via Getty Images Verma’s career continued to soar In 1988 he won an “Outstanding Investigator” award from NIH which steered $128 million to Verma and Salk for cancer research over the next 13 years In 1990 Verma was awarded a coveted American Cancer Society professorship which funded his work with hundreds of thousands of dollars until 2012 His laboratory pressed ahead with pioneering work developing gene therapy vectors and made key discoveries about cancer-causing genes such as the breast cancer gene BRCA1 He was visible in public and policy circles chairing a committee that examined NIH oversight of gene therapy clinical trials and co-chairing the government’s Recombinant DNA Advisory Committee In 1997 the year he turned 50 Verma was elected to the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and 2 years later to the Institute of Medicine part of NAS that advises the government on key issues in medicine and health In 2001 he joined the editorial board of PNAS One evening in September 2001 Beverly Emerson then 49 a molecular biologist Salk had hired in 1986 and promoted to full professor in 1999 was working at the photocopier deep in the Salk library stacks No one else was around She didn’t hear Verma approach Suddenly she says he was beside her; he grabbed her and kissed her on the mouth “Yes” he asked “No” she remembers responding in shock He backed away and left The incident Emerson says “left me feeling physically vulnerable because Dr Verma snuck up on me—and at risk of losing lab resources and professional opportunities at Salk” because of Verma’s power and influence at the institute (Emerson 66 is one of the plaintiffs in the current gender discrimination lawsuits In December 2017 5 months after the lawsuits were filed Salk declined to renew her contract saying that she failed to bring in 50% of her salary from external sources as required Emerson did not report the incident because she says “he didn’t do it again” If he had she says she would have reported it not to human resources but to the institute’s president “I had the sense that human resources had no real power to discipline or take corrective action over Dr Verma” The recruit In the first years of this century Salk’s scientific ranks were sorely lacking in women In 2003 seven of 52 faculty members were women and the trend wasn’t improving: Only one of the 11 assistant professors was a woman The institute did seek to hire women Between 2000 and 2003 it offered faculty positions to 14 outsiders five of them women; none of the five accepted a position One potential faculty recruit who declined to be named for fear of retaliation visited Salk during that period She noted that several female professors pointedly sought privacy during conversations with her by closing their office doors; one insisted on talking with her in the women’s bathroom One woman who had published in Nature and Cell confided that she was not going to get promoted “I looked at her résumé and thought ‘How is that possible’” the recruit recalls She also met with Verma in his office and discussed her research and the institute’s As he escorted her to her next interview she says Verma volunteered that if she had a husband Salk would not be able to hire him as well She replied that she wasn’t married At that point she alleges Verma reached behind her and pinched her buttocks “It wasn’t a pat on the butt it was a pinch” she says She declined Salk’s job offer “I was very disturbed by my experience there” she says Two people—her faculty mentor and a postdoc at her institution at the time—confirmed in interviews with Science that she told them of that incident soon after it happened The junior Salk colleagues One night during the past decade a young female Salk research assistant her boss (a Salk professor) and Verma attended a dinner at a San Diego restaurant with pharmaceutical company executives The research assistant was the only woman present As the dinner adjourned she says Verma “put his arm around my waist and said ‘You are always so beautiful You are like a beautiful starlet’” The woman exchanged a glance with her boss who “had this like ‘uh-oh’ look on his face” she recalls She quickly disentangled herself and walked away Verma continued to make sexual comments about her to others at Salk that woman says; those comments found their way back to her and made her feel that “attractiveness was apparently what I was there for Not doing science” She went out of her way to avoid Verma “You knew not to complain to human resources about it You don’t want to be on Verma’s bad side I wanted to keep my job” Another young woman working at Salk in 2016 reports that after a meeting she extended her hand to Verma to shake He took it and pulled her into a half-hug she says She alleges that he then put his hand on her cheek and said “I should probably not say this but you are so pretty” He went on to compare her to his daughter she says The young woman says she told Elizabeth Blackburn then Salk’s president about the incident and that Blackburn reported it to human resources (Blackburn who resigned in December 2017 did not respond to repeated requests for comment about the incident) Human resources brought in Ken Rose principal of The Rose Group a San Diego law firm—the same firm it hired in March to investigate Verma—to investigate Rose determined that no sexual harassment had occurred the woman says She adds that he concluded by telling her “‘You need to go tell him you thought it was inappropriate’ … But I never confronted him mostly because I didn’t want to be alone with him and I was afraid of retaliation” Rose declined to comment From then on she warned new female employees not to be alone with Verma I have been avoiding him for 30 years Pamela Mellon neuroscientist at the University of California San Diego During Science’s 4-month investigation some women who worked with Verma over the years offered a counternarrative to his portrayal as a sexual harasser and they praised his actions as a mentor In Verma’s lab “women were treated equal to men” says Virginie Bottero a Verma postdoc from 2002 to 2006 who is now a lecturer at Lake Forest College in Illinois “I was never subjected to harassment of any sort I did not witness any harassment and I did not hear about anyone who could have been a target” She called the lab “a fantastic place to work and grow scientifically” Dinorah Friedmann-Morvinski an assistant professor at Tel Aviv University in Israel who was a Verma postdoc from 2005 to 2015 wrote in an email “When my husband lost his job and Inder heard about it he not only raised my salary but also helped [connect] my husband with relevant people he knew in his field” She added “During my maternity leave he assigned a technician to help me with my ongoing experiments and she kept helping me when I returned full time to the lab” When Verma was elevated to become editor-in-chief of PNAS 7 years ago Ralph Cicerone then NAS president lauded Verma as “the ideal person” for the job “Dr Inder Verma is known worldwide for his scientific creativity and for his conscientiousness and fair-mindedness” Cicerone said Other leading science organizations also have sought him out including AAAS where Verma served on the board of directors from 2011 to 2015 Last October at a gala at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles California the American Cancer Society honored Verma as a “Giant of Science” In November 2017 he opined on the virtues of preprint servers in PNAS In March—with NAS President Marcia McNutt The New England Journal of Medicine Editor Jeffrey Drazen Science’s Executive Editor Monica Bradford and others—he co-authored a PNAS article urging changes to standardize journals’ authorship policies Research under Verma also continued until last week He was a co-author on three new scientific papers in the first quarter of this year In February he and his team at Salk won a $12 million award from the W M Keck Foundation to develop living mammalian tissues that are transparent to light microscopy Salk said in a statement on 25 April that Hunter will oversee all ongoing research programs in the Verma lab “during Dr Verma’s leave” and that “the Institute expects all research to continue as normal during this period” It added that Salk has contacted the foundations and funding agencies that support Verma’s work “to assure them the research they are sponsoring will continue without disruption” Can outstanding science redeem harassment “It’s the old ‘great man’ theory of the universe: ‘Look what he has done in science’” says Olivarius the sexual harassment lawyer “Instead look at how many careers he has hurt” Jennifer Freyd a research psychologist at the University of Oregon in Eugene notes that Verma’s alleged harassment occurred at an institution where women also contend that they have been shut out of power “Sexual harassment really reinforces the male power structure and keeps women in their place and terrified But also any kind of gender inequity gives more permission to sexually harass So they are mutually reinforcing They do go together” This story was supported by the Science Fund for Investigative Reporting *Correction 22 May 5:30 pm: After this story was published Jean Wang continued to search for a contemporaneous record which Science had requested of the incident she recounted She located such a record which confirmed her account but set the incident in 1988 rather than 1987 as she had originally told Science This story has been updated to reflect this Louis County program is a collaboration between the judge, almost backing through
