Moroccos transgender dancer courts acceptance

CASABLANCA (AP)— It was a slow night on the red carpet at the opening of the Marrakech film festival for the photographers and everyone was complaining over the lack of celebrities.Then a car pulled up and out stepped Noor Talbi, Morocco’s most famous belly dancer. The photographers went wild. Darling of the jet set and a fixture for any society party or hotel opening, Noor’s statuesque six feet frame was clothed in a spangled, off-the-shoulder ballgown slit up the side to reveal her long legs.Legs, that as a teenage athlete, won her a gold medal in the 440-meter hurdles at the national level — back when she was a boy who went by the name of Nourreddine. In this conservative Muslim country where homosexuality is illegal and punishable by up to three years in jail, a transgender woman like Noor is not only accepted but is a celebrity. Her ability to seemingly transcend the restrictions of her culture speaks both to her star power and to a certain kind of tolerance toward sexual minorities in this North African nation — and even in the wider Middle East.There are references to men affecting the clothes and attitudes of women in the Quran. In countries like Iran and Egypt, while homosexuality is illegal, gender change surgery is allowed, especially for those born hermaphrodites. Cross-dressing is also often found in the entertainment world and in Turkey one of the most famous singers of classical music was also once a man.Casablanca, Noor’s hometown, looms large in the history of gender-reassignment operations. From the 1950s to the 1970s it was home to the clinic of George Burou, who revolutionized the science of turning men into women, including British model April Ashley and French cabaret dancer Coccinelle.Noor appears to enjoy nothing but success: She has starred in several movies, headlined weddings for the wealthy, and is a regular on red carpets and big events. But there are limits. She cannot get her identity card changed to reflect her new gender, and Moroccan state television refuses to put her on air.“Gender non-conformity is entertaining and confusing as long as it’s safely confined to a stage or TV screen, not something you meet on the street,” warned Scott Long, a rights activist with long experience in the Middle East. “Social prejudice against people who don’t conform to gender norms is very strong.”When Noor arrived for her interview with The Associated Press, she glided into the lobby of the Sofitel in Casablanca dressed in a form-fitting black jacket and pants with heeled boots that set her well above everyone else in the room. She sat with the perfect posture of a dancer and in her husky voice spoke in French about the performances she was giving around the world.She’s even appeared on American television, with a role on Tyra Banks’ America’s Next Top Model back in 2011, where she taught the aspiring models to dance with a tea set on their head during an episode filmed in Marrakech.Noor does not want to talk about Nourredine, the boy she used to be, for she is now an “integrated woman,” she said. She referred only in vague terms to her “history,” comparing it to the checkered pasts of Hollywood screen sirens Marilyn Monroe and Rita Hayworth.“They tell me my costumes are too suggestive or my past — what past? We are speaking now of the woman of today, who is an artist and seduces her public,” she said about the TV executives. Noor often uses the word seduce, and one point gently tugs down the zipper of her jacket as she says it.Noor’s past is the secret everyone knows but few mention.“We accept Noor, it is burlesque, a kind of reality and fiction and it plays with the imagination of people,” said Ahmed Najim, director of the news site who has followed Noor’s career for years. “She introduced Moroccans to the costumes, music and choreography (of belly dancing) and made it famous.”Najim noted that there is a tradition of men dressing up as women in small villages to dance, when it wasn’t considered proper for women to do so.While homosexuality is illegal under Morocco’s penal code, the measure is only sporadically enforced. In September, 60-year-old British tourist Ray Cole was arrested along with his young Moroccan boyfriend and sentenced to four months in prison, before being released.For the most part, though, there is an atmosphere of “don’t ask, don’t tell,” with none of the witch-hunt mentality found in places like Egypt.Noor isn’t interested in being cast in some sort of activist role for the gay community. She has hung up the phone in the past when contacted by activists. “I don’t consider myself part of that environment, I am now a woman, quite simply, and integrated.”Born the southern resort town of Agadir, Noor grew up in Hay Mohammedi, one of the Casablanca’s many sprawling slums. As a teenager she was a track and field star, especially in the hurdles, but on the side she was always dancing.“I was already dancing at 10 years old and my mother would stay ‘stop, this is a family wedding, don’t put the scarf on,’” she said, referring to the scarf worn around the waist by belly dancers. She left for Europe at 18, came back years later as Noor and began to dance in earnest.Noor admits that as she breaks taboos, wows audiences and endures obstinate government officials, the struggle is hard and she yearns for that final official acceptance. The topic of her 10-year battle to get her gender change officially recognized on her state ID card still incenses her.“A little piece of paper that’s just 4cm (1.5 inches), is this going to make me a real woman? I am 1.85 meters of woman and my body explodes with femininity,” she said.Even so, her words quickened and her eyes flashed in annoyance as she described her humiliation when bureaucrats — or police officers — comment on the disjuncture between what is written on her ID and her appearance.“If I wasn’t such a strong woman, religious, humanly and social, another might have killed herself,” she said. read more

Chinese arrested and released in Colombo

Local police said they set up several checkpoints on Monday night in Colombo targeting foreign nationals who stay in Sri Lanka without valid visas and during the operation several foreigners other than Chinese nationals were arrested. The person, who only gave his name as Su, said the two along with about 20 other Chinese nationals were detained by police on Monday night, and most of them were released on Monday night and early Tuesday morning after their passports and valid visas were presented to the police. All Chinese nationals detained in Sri Lanka have been freed following the release of two Chinese women on Tuesday, said sources close to the case.The two Chinese women with invalid visas were released from the Kollupitiya police station in Colombo after fines were paid, said a Chinese person, who helped pay the fines for the two Chinese women. The Chinese embassy said it attached great importance to the event and sent the consular staff to the police station to help free the Chinese nationals once they got the news.The embassy said it referred the case to Sri Lanka’s police headquarters and External Affairs Ministry, demanding the Sri Lankan side protect the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese nationals in Sri Lanka, meanwhile reminding Chinese citizens to comply with local regulations and carry valid identity documents when traveling abroad.

Canadian dollar closes at June 2012 levels amid Italian election uncertainty

Canadian dollar closes at June 2012 levels, amid Italian election uncertainty by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 25, 2013 8:35 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – The Canadian dollar closed lower for a sixth session Monday amid concerns about weakening economic conditions and an outcome from Italy’s elections that markets didn’t want to see.The loonie fell 0.65 of a cent to 97.31 cents US, its lowest close since late June 2012, amid fading hopes that the elections in Italy, a country hit hard by the eurozone’s government debt crisis, would yield a clear winner.Early polls had raised prospects that the centre-left coalition led by Pier Luigi Bersani has claimed the most votes in Italy’s election. That meant he would be in a position to form a government, possibly in conjunction with Mario Monti, the former technocratic premier who has been widely credited in the markets for dousing the country’s debt crisis.But those hopes evaporated as the election appeared to be heading towards gridlock with Bersani’s forces moving toward victory in the lower house of Parliament while the camp of former premier Silvio Berlusconi gained the upper hand in the equally powerful Senate.Add in the strong result of the 5 Star Movement of ex-comic turned-political agitator Beppe Grillo and fears grew that the next government will lack the will to carry on with tough austerity measures.Italy has the second-highest level of debt among the 17 eurozone countries as a proportion of its annual gross domestic product. Only Greece’s is higher.The wave of uncertainty arising from the results pushed the euro to a six-month low against the American currency.February has not been kind to the loonie, which is down about 2.5 US cents for the month on a combination of factors.These include sliding commodities, worries about the strength of the Canadian housing sector and the price differential between benchmark Brent crude and Western Canadian Select from the oilsands.Traders are also concerned about U.S. economic strength, particularly as a March 1 deadline looms when more than US$85 billion in across the board spending cuts will be triggered.Also, the U.S. dollar gained strength last week amid concerns the U.S. Federal Reserve may abandon its easy monetary policy sooner than many analysts have been predicting.Finally, the loonie was hit at the end of last week as lower than expected retail sales for December pointed to a weakening economy while tame inflation figures indicated the Bank of Canada won’t be raising rates any time soon.Economists think it could be some time before the loonie resumes its perch above parity with the greenback.“In light of the recent weakness, persistently soft data and lacklustre economic outlook, we’ve downgrade our call on the dollar with the currency now expected to strengthen at a more subdued pace over the next year (and) ending 2013 at parity,” said BMO Capital Markets senior economist Benjamin Reitzes.This week, the major piece of economic data comes out Friday. Statistics Canada is expected to report that Canadian gross domestic product grew by 0.7 per cent in the fourth quarter. But it looks like growth started to flatten at the end of the year as the economy likely contracted by 0.1 per cent in December after rising 0.3 per cent in November.Commodity prices were mixed with the April crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange off two cents to US$93.11 a barrel.March copper gained one cent to US$3.54 a pound while April gold bullion jumped $13.80 to US$1,586.60 an ounce. read more

UN expert shocked by Egyptian reprisals against human rights defenders she met

Special Rapporteur on the right to housing, Leilani Farha, said that Egypt “failed to adhere” to the assurances it provided to her, that “no person would be harassed, intimidated or subjected to reprisal for meeting or providing information” to her – or others in her official delegation – during the more than week-long visit.“I am shocked that after my mission a number of families from two communities I visited have suffered forced eviction contrary to international human rights law,” she added.According to the Special Rapporteur, several multi-storey houses have been demolished, furniture thrown into the street, and residents made homeless. Reportedly, adequate notice was not provided to victims, or any compensation, or new accommodation. Excessive force was also allegedly used by security forces against residents when they refused to leave their homes.“Among those targeted were several houses and apartments belonging to family members of community leaders with whom I met while I was on official mission,” said Ms. Farha.Special Rapporteurs are independent human rights experts, appointed by UN Member States at the Geneva-based Human Rights Council to examine and report on thematic rights issues and country situations.In the course of their work, they undertake official visits after being invited to do so by the countries concerned.The Terms of Reference for such country visits specify that “no persons, official or private individuals who have been in contact with the special rapporteur/representative in relation to the mandate will for this reason suffer threats, harassment or punishment or be subjected to judicial proceedings.”In multiple resolutions, the UN Human Rights Council has reinforced this protection, reaffirming that everyone has the right to unhindered access and communication with the human rights mechanism of the UN and urged States to refrain from all acts of intimidation or reprisal.Human rights defenders ‘followed and photographed’Also voicing concern over the reprisals, Michel Forst, the UN Special Rapporteur on human rights defenders said that the alleged incidents represented a worrying pattern against individuals and communities directly related to Ms. Farha’s visit.“Human rights defenders and lawyers working on the right to housing also reported that they have been followed and photographed by persons unknown to them, to have received anonymous and threatening phone calls, or have been summoned to report at police offices for interrogation,” he said, adding that one lawyer Ms. Farha had met, was subsequently slapped with a travel ban.In early November, the two human rights experts raised their concerns and sought clarification regarding the alleged forced evictions and reprisals with the Egyptian Government. They have not yet received an official reply.“Unless Egypt ensures that human rights defenders and victims of human rights violations can interact with UN human rights envoys without fear of reprisal, it is in our view not ready to host further visits,” said the two Special Rapporteurs. read more

Founder of French breast implant scandal firm jailed

first_imgA FRENCH COURT has convicted of fraud the ex-managers of a firm whose faulty breast implants sparked a global health scare, and sentenced the company’s founder to four years in jail.The now-defunct firm, Poly Implant Prothese (PIP) was at the centre of worldwide concern two years ago after it was revealed to have used cheaper industrial-grade silicone in thousands of breast implants sold worldwide.The court sentenced PIP founder Jean-Claude Mas to four years in prison, fined him €75,000 and banned him permanently from working in medical services or running a company.‘Sorcerer’s apprentice’Mas, a 74-year-old dubbed “the sorcerer’s apprentice of implants” by prosecutors, did not react as the verdict was read out in court.“I am disappointed but not surprised,” Mas’s lawyer Yves Haddad said, blaming the verdict on “strong pressure” due to the public nature of the scandal and announcing plans to appeal.Haddad said it was “shocking” that Mas had not been given a suspended sentence as he had no previous criminal record.Four other former PIP executives were also convicted by the court in Marseille on the charges of aggravated fraud and given lesser sentences.The scandal first emerged in 2010 after doctors noticed abnormally high rupture rates in PIP implants.Some 300,000 women in 65 countries are believed to have received the faulty implants.During a month-long trial in April, the defendants admitted to using the industrial silicone but Mas denied the company’s implants posed any health risks.More than 7,500 women have reported ruptures in the implants and in France alone 15,000 have had the PIP implants replaced.More than 7,000 women had declared themselves civil plaintiffs in the case and several dozen were in court for the verdict.“It is an important symbolic first step – the first time that we can use the word ‘guilty’ for Jean-Claude Mas,” said Alexandra Blachere, the head of an association of women given the implants.Industrial gel saved PIP millionsThe court also sentenced PIP’s former general manager Claude Couty to three years in prison, with two years suspended.Quality control director Hannelore Font and production director Loic Gossart were both sentenced to two years in prison, with one suspended, and research director Thierry Brinon was given an 18-month suspended sentence.Mas founded PIP in 1991 to take advantage of the booming market for cosmetic implants.Health authorities later discovered he was saving millions of euro by using industrial-grade gel in 75 percent of the implants. PIP’s implants were banned and the company eventually liquidated.PIP had exported more than 80 percent of its implants, with about half going to Latin America, about a third to other countries in western Europe, about 10 percent to eastern Europe and the rest to the Middle East and Asia.Some of the defendants, including Mas, have also been charged in separate and ongoing manslaughter and financial fraud investigations into the scandal.Suspicious deathThe manslaughter probe is related to the suspicious 2010 death from cancer of a woman who was fitted with the implants.German safety standards firm TUV, which approved the implants for market, was last month found liable in the case.A European Commission report found in October that the defective breast implants contain no potentially toxic compounds.Approximately 1,500 Irish women were fitted with the defective implants, with 138 ruptures being reported in Ireland by May of this year.It was announced in early May that the cost of removing the PIP implants from Irish women would be covered by the three clinics which used the faulty products.- Additional reporting AFP. – © AFP, 2013Read: Silicone in controversial PIP breast implants won’t cause cancer says report>last_img read more

Australian scientist discovers Greek Orthodoxy

first_imgSouth Australian scientist Jeremy Krieg was born in 1977 into a loving Christian-Lutheran family, as a descendent of German Lutherans who had migrated to the newly-founded colony of South Australia in the 1840s.“I am the eldest of three children and my parents instilled in all three of us the importance of Christian values and a love for God,” states 40-year-old Greek Orthodox priest Father Jeremy who also holds university degrees in electrical engineering and mathematical physics/pure maths. After completing his studies, the young scientist worked as a software engineer for the Defence Science Technology Organisation (DSTO) and later for a local internet start-up company, however, at the age of 28, Krieg found himself challenging his faith, as a result of someone who had lapsed in theirs.“I became ashamed of myself because in spite of a higher education that had equipped me to answer advanced physics, maths, and engineering problems, I struggled to answer some of the deeper questions about my faith; a faith that was supposedly an important part of my life.“It was then that I resolved to become more educated and ultimately to learn the truth about the faith and – if necessary – to change my life to accommodate whatever truth I discovered,” reveals Father Jeremy in a candid interview with Neos Kosmos.Unbeknown to him, Krieg’s journey to Orthodoxy had just begun.Father Jeremy says what drew him to Orthodoxy was mainly the fact that the Orthodox Church does not compromise on its values and beliefs to satisfy the masses. “At the beginning of my spiritual journey, I had a preconception of the Christian world being divided into Roman Catholic and Protestant camps. I had always held a high view of the Sacraments, but I rejected the idea of a Pope. “In my limited view of the Christian world, Lutheranism seemed like the only real place that I belonged, yet even in Lutheranism, there were teachings that I was not comfortable with, that did not resonate as true. It was during this time that I discovered the Orthodox Church and my horizon suddenly expanded,” he says.Fr Jeremy at his wedding with his parents Larry and Erica.The young scientist decided to formally commence studying theology in an attempt to learn more and investigate his own Lutheran tradition further. “Protestants are accustomed to thinking of the Christian world according to the so-called ‘branch theory’: the Church is like a tree, and each denomination a branch on that tree. While each denomination had its own errors, as long as they agreed on the essential doctrines, they would still be part of the tree. “The problem with this, as I soon began to realise, is that the denominations cannot even agree on which doctrines are the essential ones and as a consequence, they continue to widen the circle in the name of inclusiveness, by watering down the faith.“The Orthodox Church, in contrast, makes the bold claim that it is the one and only original Church that Christ Himself founded and it alone has preserved the fullness of the faith undefiled and has declared that all the other denominations are in error and have at some point split from this original Church.” Initially, Krieg started attending the local Lebanese (Arabic-speaking) Orthodox Church under the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia.In 2005 he was accepted into the Orthodox Church via Holy Baptism and began to attend fellowship groups for young adults at the Holy Monastery of St Nectarios (Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia), run by parish priest Archimandrite Fr Silouan Fotineas. Two years later, Father Jeremy met his wife, now Presvytera Ioanna Krieg, whose migrant parents originate from Pontos and Ipeiros. The couple were married in 2009 on the Sunday of Saint Thomas.“Throughout this journey, I felt my relationship with God deepening and therefore I decided, in consultation with my wife, that I wished to serve God in whatever capacity He laid out for me. I involved myself in parish life at St Nectarios, joining my wife on the parish committee, teaching Sunday school and chanting,” explains Father Jeremy.The couple’s involvement came to the attention of Bishop Nikandros of Doryleon, who in late 2011 asked Krieg if he wished to become ordained.Fr Jeremy with his wife Ioanna. “Knowing that in Orthodoxy our bishops are guided by the Holy Spirit to make such decisions, and with the guidance of my spiritual father, I accepted the call,” says Father Jeremy who is the first non-Greek clergy of the Archdiocese in South Australia, and only the third in Australia. “With the blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos, I was ordained to the Diaconate at the Holy Monastery of St Nectarios, on 12 May 2012 by His Grace Bishop Nikandros of Doryleon. I was ordained to the priesthood by His Grace later that same year, at St Nectarios, on the feast day of St Nectarios (9 November). I served as an assistant priest at St Nectarios and at other parishes of the Archdiocese mostly on weekends in a volunteer capacity, while keeping my day job as an engineer.” Father Jeremy served the Archdiocese in a full-time capacity and was also appointed Chief Executive Officer of the Greek Welfare Centre SA, St Philothei.In both roles, the determined priest tries to converse with many Greek parishioners in their native language and he reveals that his Greek is improving daily with the help of a very special teacher. “While I was able to read Greek through my theological training and experience on the chanter’s stand, speaking modern Greek was another skill altogether, therefore, I study Greek together with my four-year-old daughter who came into this world less than one month after my ordination to the priesthood, on the feast day of St Stylianos and she was named in his honour. “For me, it was a tremendous blessing that Styliani was the first child that I ever read the eighth-day and 40-day prayers for, as an Orthodox priest. She was also the first child that I baptised.”As to whether it has been an easy transition from science to Orthodoxy, Father Jeremy seems to really be enjoying being the ‘Αυστραλό’ (Australian) priest. “Everywhere I have been, whether in South Australia, interstate or abroad, I have always been wholeheartedly received by my fellow clergy and laypeople, even though I am a ξένος (foreigner)” explains Father Jeremy.“In fact, I think that the sheer novelty of me being an Αυστραλός often causes them to overlook my many weaknesses, when people would have been less forgiving if it were my fellow clergy. “I also find that simply being the Αυστραλό priest, in a way that words alone could not achieve, is often a good way to reach out to cradle Orthodox and to motivate them to think more deeply about their ancestral Faith, because Orthodoxy is not just for Greeks, Serbs, Russians, Romanians and so on, nor should we remain Orthodox simply because we are Greek and that’s what Greeks unfortunately do. “We should remain Orthodox because we recognise that it is the true Faith and is the fullest expression of God’s love on this Earth.At the same time, Father Jeremy admits that the path has been difficult at times, but nevertheless it’s not an isolated one. With his daughter Styliani in Thessaloniki.“The language barrier is an obvious issue, although over time I have come to realise that this is not as big a problem as many believe it to be, but generally, any time someone wishes to change their life, take a new direction, join a new community, or make new friends – these are difficult steps. “So, if I could give my humble advice to anyone who is contemplating taking this path, I would caution them of these difficulties, but I would also point out the rewards that eventually come to those who endure these difficulties and counsel people to keep their mind fixed on the end goal. “I hope for others to look at me and fellow Australian priest father Daniel (the second non-Greek Orthodox priest in SA) and feel inspired to investigate religious matters further, grasping the fact that the religion we serve doesn’t separate people in categories; on the contrary, Orthodoxy belongs to everyone. “It is Christ in His purest form on this Earth and there is no higher reward than finding the truth,” concludes Father Jeremy.

Another Greek mayor for Stonnington

first_imgStonnington Council representatives were sworn in at a Special Council Meeting in November last year, and on Thursday 2 November this year they elected their new mayor. Taking over from Jami Klisaris, Melbourne’s youngest mayor, is another Greek, Cr Steve Stefanopoulos.Cr Stefanopoulos has been a resident of Stonnington for more than 40 years, firstly in Malvern, then in Prahran and now in Armadale.“My aim is to bring the community along on an engaged journey whereby we all develop the strategic direction for the future of Stonnington,” he said shortly after his election. “My high level, strategic thinking, heritage expertise, open-mindedness and engaging personality will all contribute to my ability to make positive changes for the whole community.”Cr Stefanopoulos has a strong interest in a wide array of initiatives that promote sustainability and is determined to bring those views to the table in an effort to contribute to and improve the area’s valued quality lifestyle. He expressed his optimism about what all nine elected representatives can do collaboratively as a council and said that he looks forward to “working together to achieve wonderful outcomes”, whilst focusing on heritage, lifestyle, character, and the creation of open space.“I enjoy the cosmopolitan inner city feel of [this area],” he added. “One thing I enjoy doing is going for an early Sunday morning walk in the neighbourhood with my partner, and saying hello to fellow residents and meeting new residents. That is what I call community.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Panayiotis Pappas presents Greek Canadian Immigrec Project

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Interesting insights into the migrant experience in Canada will be offered by Associate Professor Panayiotis Pappas from Simon Fraser University in Canada during a lecture at the Ithacan Philanthropic Society on Tuesday, 16 April.The lecture, titled “The Immigrec project: Building a virtual museum of the Greek-Canadian immigrant experience”, will give Australian audiences a round-up of his project that aims to document the second wave of Greek immigration to Canada – roughly the period 1945 to 1975 – through the collection of oral histories and archival material, such as travel documents, photographs, etc., for the purpose of creating a virtual museum, and for research in history, political science, anthropology, and linguistics. The project has interviewed 453 participants from 12 different communities in Canada, and more than 13 different geographic regions of Greece, yielding an unexpected treasure trove of historical, anthropological, and linguistic data.He gave Neos Kosmos insight into his life and work, in the first person.READ MORE: The Immigrec Project presented in AustraliaGrowing up Greek in America was… brief. We moved back to Greece when I was three, so I actually grew up American in GreeceThe inspiration behind the Immigrec project was… Professor Ralli, the chief investigator (of the project) had studied in Montreal. During a visit in 2011, she noticed that the Greek imprint on the city was diminishing so she decided to document the history of Greek immigration before the first generation of the 2nd wave passed on.The greatest challenge for me has been… convincing the first generation Greeks to participate. It was the second generation (sons and daughters) that helped us recruit speakers, and who saw the value of the project.The most impressive legacy of the project has been… the virtual museum which will be ready in a couple of months. It will allow future generations of Greek Canadians to learn about the history of their communities.A story that sticks out most from my research has been… mail order grooms. I was surprised how many young men moved to Canada for marriage. Most of them only on the basis of a few letters and a single photograph.Something that Greek Australians will find particularly interesting… most Greek Canadians were also considering Australia as a possible destination. These two countries were the only real viable options for them.A commonality of the diaspora experience around the globe is… their continued love for the home country, and their sincere desire to be excellent ambassadors for Hellenism.During my lecture at the Ithacan Philanthropic Society… I will present a general overview of the project, discussing the organisation of our research efforts, our preliminary linguistic results, and showcasing some of the most exciting features of the virtual museum.Apart from the presentation, the visit is an opportunity for Dr Pappas to also meet with the faculty of Greek Studies of La Trobe University to share their methodology methods and explore the possibilities of collaboration.The visit is made possible by the Vassilogiannis Bequest, the generous gift to Greek studies left by the late Anastassios Vassilogiannis and takes place at 7pm on 16 April at the Ithacan Philanthropic Society (Level 2, 329 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne).last_img read more

New Zealand shooter shows no signs of remorse and smirks in court

first_imgA day after the deadly mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, the alleged shooter was presented in court on Saturday, March 16, morning. Australian-born Brenton Harrison Tarrant did not seek a name suppression during his court appearance and is said to have shown no signs of remorse.Instead, the accused smirked at media persons present and swayed while the charges were read out. The 28-year-old Dunedin resident, flanked by two policemen, appeared in white prison clothes, shackled and barefeet, and remained silent throughout.He has been charged with murder and sent to custody without plea until April 5, when he will be produced before the high court for a hearing, reported NZ Herald. Flowers and messages of condolence are left outside the Ponsonby mosque on March 16, 2019Phil Walter/Getty ImagesDuring the hearing, Judge Paul Kellar in the Christchurch District Court said it was “reasonable to assume” that the man would face further murder charges. While he allowed media persons to take photographs and film the proceedings, he ordered that Tarrant’s face be pixelated as his identity might be a part of the court case. A large crowd assembles in Aotea Square for a memorial to remember the victims of the Christchurch mosque shootings on March 16, 2019Phil Walter/Getty ImagesForty-nine people were killed and at least 40 others sustained serious injuries when a gunman opened fire during afternoon prayers at two mosques on Friday, March 15. The New Zealand Police Commissioner confirmed the death toll and said that four people — three men and one woman — had been taken into custody. It was later notified that one of the detained was later let go. New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern speaks to the media on March 16, 2019 in Christchurch, New ZealandKai Schwoerer/Getty ImagesSpeaking of Tarrant, New Zealand’s prime minister Jacinda Ardern said that he had obtained a “Category A” gun licence in November 2017, and had started buying weapons — two semi-automatic rifles, two shotguns and a lever-action weapon — in December 2018.”The mere fact… that this individual had acquired a gun licence and acquired weapons of that range, then obviously I think people will be seeking change, and I’m committing to that,” the Agence France-Presse quoted Ardern as saying.”While work is being done as to the chain of events that led to both the holding of this gun licence, and the possession of these weapons, I can tell you one thing right now — our gun laws will change.”She also confirmed that Tarrant and the other two detainees weren’t on the terror watchlist in New Zealand or Australia. “The individual charged with murder had not come to the attention of the intelligence community, nor the police, for extremism,” she added.”I have asked our agencies this morning to work swiftly on assessing whether there was any activity on social media or otherwise, that should have triggered a response. That work is already underway.”It was earlier said that a social media post surfaced just before the attack and is believed to have been written by one of the shooters. The post contained a link to an 87-page manifesto that spoke of anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim ideas and explanations, reported CNN.

New road to Monteverde to be ready in 2014 officials say

first_imgRelated posts:Work to begin on new road to Costa Rica’s Monteverde cloud forest community Residents demand new, better road to Monteverde New road to Monteverde bogged down by delays, red tape Monteverde residents demanding a new road slow traffic on Inter-American Highway The National Roadway Council (CONAVI) on Tuesday promised residents of the cloud forest community of Monteverde that construction of a new road will start in November.The agreement came after a meeting attended by officials from CONAVI, the Comptroller General’s Office and residents of the north-central community, one of Costa Rica’s most popular tourist destinations.CONAVI officials agreed to open a public bid for the project no later than September. The ₡7.5 billion ($15 million) project will include an asphalt road to replace an 18-kilometer stretch of deteriorated gravel road. It also will include the construction of ditches and guardrails.If the Comptroller General’s Office approves a public-bid contract, work would begin in November. CONAVI said the project would take 10 months to complete.On Monday, Monteverde residents protested the state of the current road during a demonstration on the Inter-American Highway in the Pacific province of Puntarenas. They said tourism in their community and in the cloud forest reserve has declined significantly in the past year because travel to the area is so difficult. Several hotels, restaurants and other business have closed in recent months, they said. The road is especially dangerous during the rainy season months of May to November.Some 100,000 tourists visit the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve each year.

What an MLB source said about the Dbacks trade h

first_img What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke if the seahawks actually seek to trade tarvaris jackson, i can tell you one place he definitely would be welcomed by players: arizona.— Jim Trotter (@SI_JimTrotter) August 15, 2012 Top Stories D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Jackson, 29, has had a solid-but-unspectacular career since being taken in the second round of the 2006 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings. He’s completed 59.4 percent of his passes and thrown 38 touchdowns against 35 interceptions, tallying a QB rating of 77.7 in the process.At any rate, while Jackson wouldn’t necessarily be a bad option for the Cardinals, it’s hard to see the Seahawks being amenable to the idea of trading him within the NFC West. Besides, as of now the Cardinals have four QBs on the roster, and adding someone like Jackson would likely mean parting with someone like Kolb.And as bad as things seem now, it’s a little tough to see that happening. Comments   Share   Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation The Arizona Cardinals do not yet have a starting quarterback, which leaves room for people to speculate who should get the job.With Kevin Kolb and John Skelton in the midst of a battle of mediocrity, some feel like the team may look elsewhere for an answer at the position. One of the QBs supposedly on the trade block is Tarvaris Jackson, who is currently with the Seattle Seahawks. Would he be a good fit in Arizona? Hard to say, but according to Sports Illustrated’s Jim Trotter players on the Cardinals players wouldn’t be opposed to bringing him in.

Anastasiades the less said about Eide the better Update 1

first_imgThe less said about UN Special Adviser Espen Barth Eide, the better right now, President Nicos Anastasiades said on Sunday, adding that the UN envoy should have learned from the experiences of his predecessors who had created problems within one community or the other.Anastasiades expressed his regret that Eide appeared to be adopting positions from one side and said any intimidation or pressure when it came to the Cyprus talks would have the opposite effect.Speaking on the sidelines of a charity basketball game in Nicosia, in which the presidential palace team was participating, Anastasiades was asked to comment on statements by Eide that he agreed with the position of Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci that the UN could submit bridging proposals but it must be requested by both sides.In a speech at a forum organised by the Bahcesehir University in Istanbul on Saturday, Akinci said: “Although arbitration isn’t recommended, the UN could develop its bridging role between the two sides”.“In principle we particularly regret the fact that the special adviser to the secretary-general tends to adopt positions that are expressed from one side,” Anastasiades said.“We have said repeatedly that these talks are Cypriot owned. We do not want arbitration… this was an agreement… we do not want timetables and we constantly hear about the risks that may arise if the talks are prolonged,” said Anastasiades.The president said he wanted “our friend Mr Eide to realise something… that intimidation achieves the opposite effect”.Anastasiades said he did not wish to enter into a personal conflict with Eide but planned to write a letter to UN chief Antonio Guterres drawing attention to statements that can cause mistrust or give the impression that the positions of one side was being adopted at the expense of the other.The president referred to the two-month break in the talks over the Enosis vote in parliament that angered Akinci and prompted him to leave the talks, all because of a simple reference to an historical event, while Eide did not appear to see the threats being issued to the Republic of Cyprus and the distrust generated through Turkey’s issuance of Navtex notices, and the presence of Turkish seismic vessel Barbaros.“I do not appreciate the fact that I, representing the Greek Cypriot community, cannot refer to historical facts while real threats to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic are not being addressed,” he said.Referring to accusations that he was focusing on the 2018 presidential elections, he insinuated the rush might have more to do with elections being held in Norway in September. Eide is said to be eyeing the Norwegian foreign minister position.Asked if all of these issues would be included in the letter he planned to send to Guterres, Anastasiades said: “I have no intention to get into a personal dispute with the special adviser but I draw attention to any statements made that cause mistrust or give the impression of adopting the positions of one side at the expense of the other,” he said.He said what interests him to know is whether the secretary-general believes the talks were being conducted under threat because this would be “unthinkable” and a violation of international law.At the same time, he went on, the Special Adviser is preoccupied with meetings, to bring about a new date for a multilateral conference in Geneva.Anastasiades said at this point that he did not oppose a multilateral conference, since it is there that Turkey will have to provide answers on security and guarantees and the withdrawal of troops.“He (Eide) is in a hurry, as he was in the past. And I had warned him that this will only bring about disappointment among Greek Cypriots,” the President concluded.The UN secretary-general, concerned by the state of the peace talks, has put forward “some ideas” which Eide, will put to the two leaders after he returns to Cyprus on Monday.Eide, who briefed the UN chief, Antonio Guterres, in New York on Friday said they had a “thorough, strategic discussion” on the “way ahead”.No details have been released of what Guturres’ ideas contain, but for him to suggest ways of breaking the deadlock reflects how seriously the international community is taking the possibility of the talks collapsing.Remarks by Eide in recent days give the strong impression that while the UN is still hoping for the best, it is also preparing the worst.Tensions are escalating amid Turkish threats to scupper Greek Cypriot plans to resume drilling for natural gas in June.In an interview with the Cyprus News Agency before his meeting with Guterres on Friday, Eide said if the leaders failed to reach a deal in the near future, “other options might have to be tabled”.He voiced concern that if tension were allowed to escalate over drilling scheduled for June in Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone (EEZ), it could be “potentially more dramatic than 2014”, when Turkey despatched the Barbaros, a survey ship, and Anastasiades walked out of the peace talks in protest.You May LikeClassmates.comLook For Any High School Yearbook, It’s FreeClassmates.comUndoTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionOne Thing All Liars Have in Common, Brace YourselfTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionUndoFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
