Newfoundland woman at centre of Scottish workplace harassment scandal

first_imgST. JOHN’S, N.L. – A Newfoundland-born woman has sparked a major political scandal in Scotland, alleging she suffered a decade of harassment after complaining about a sexist, racist workplace culture at her civil service office.A photo published by the BBC this week shows DeeAnn Fitzpatrick taped to a chair with tape over her mouth — an incident she claims was a response from two male co-workers at Marine Scotland’s office in Scrabster for “[speaking] out against the boys.”Fitzpatrick’s case is currently before the Scottish Employment Tribunal, preventing her from speaking publicly about her experiences at work.But her sister-in-law, Sherry Fitzpatrick, has taken the case to the media to draw attention to the incidents and hopefully put an end to the years of “torment.”“We said, ‘This is not going to go on any longer. This is gonna end for you,’” Sherry Fitzpatrick said in an interview Friday.DeeAnn Fitzpatrick, a fisheries officer originally from Bell Island, N.L., claims co-workers mocked her for having a miscarriage, used racist language, and threatened female staff members.The shocking photo was published this week after being anonymously submitted to BBC reporter Mark Daly. The image, and Fitzpatrick’s ongoing case tribunal case, has prompted outcry in the U.K.Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said she was “absolutely horrified” by the photo, and said she is ordering a review of Fitzpatrick’s case.“Bullying, abuse, sexism, racism, have no place in any workplace, and let me be very clear today, they will not be tolerated within the Scottish government and within our agencies,” Sturgeon told Scottish Parliament.Rhoda Grant, a Labour member of the Scottish Parliament who has supported Fitzpatrick’s case, expressed frustration at the Scottish government’s response. Grant said she had previously asked Sturgeon to take action, and noted that Fitzpatrick’s case had been covered in Scottish media before the photo surfaced this week.“For the best part of a decade, I have been dealing with DeeAnn’s case, fighting alongside her, and trying to get things moving forward but have had nothing but a brick wall from the Scottish government,” Grant said in an e-mailed statement. “It is a shame it took a shocking photo having to be revealed before they were willing to listen and take action.”Grant also requested that the first minister lift rules preventing Fitzpatrick from speaking publicly, saying “it is in the public interest that her story is heard.”Sherry Fitzpatrick said the photo was taken in 2010, after her sister-in-law complained to her union, saying she witnessed a misogynistic incident directed at a female colleague.The two men allegedly taped Fitzpatrick to the chair and put tape over her mouth to send a message about further complaints.According to the BBC, her manager said he would have a word with both men, saying “I am sure they meant no harm and that was the boys just being boys.”Her sister-in-law said after this incident, Fitzpatrick “always had to explain herself for everything.”Sherry Fitzpatrick said she was with her sister-in-law at her ailing father’s bedside in 2016 when she received an email from her employer, saying if she did not explain her absence she would face disciplinary action. The BBC’s report said the correspondence showed Fitzpatrick informed her employer of her absence and family emergency.Fitzpatrick has not returned to work since her father’s death. Her sister-in-law said the “turmoil from work,” her mother’s death in 2015, and her father’s death a year later took a heavy toll. Her family says Fitzpatrick has trouble sleeping, rarely leaves home, and has lost most of her hair as a result of the stress.Fitzpatrick is also facing a disciplinary hearing from her employers, following complaints that she was “overzealous” in her job duties and rude to a client.Sherry Fitzpatrick said the family is remaining cautious as the probe ordered by Sturgeon is underway. But the family is feeling some relief now that the case has received attention from the government.Sherry hopes that as a bare minimum, Fitzpatrick will receive some sort of public apology. She said her sister-in-law “just wants her dignity back.”“DeeAnn loved being a fisheries officer, she loved her job. It’s just the ignorant people she worked with that made it difficult for her,” Sherry said.“It’s not everyone in Marine Scotland who treated her that way. But there are a lot of people who were aware and did nothing.”last_img read more

We burned a girl and threw her in the lake Laura Babcocks

first_imgTORONTO – An Ontario man accused of murdering a young Toronto woman whose body has never been found confessed to burning “a girl” and tossing her in a lake, a witness told court on Wednesday.Desi Liberatore said he was smoking weed and drinking peach schnapps with Mark Smich and a couple of friends in 2012, when Smich began rapping about “torching a body.”Smich then asked his girlfriend to leave the garage at his mother’s home in Oakville, Ont., Liberatore said, and once she left, Smich told his friends that he did, in fact, burn a girl and dump her body and a cellphone in a lake.“We burned a girl and threw her in the lake. We killed someone,” Liberatore said Smich told him.“Did he say he killed somebody?” Crown lawyer Jill Cameron asked Liberatore.“I don’t think he said it exactly like that,” Liberatore said. “He said ‘we burned a body and threw it in the lake.’”Smich, 30, of Oakville, Ont., and Dellen Millard, 32, of Toronto, have pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the death of 23-year-old Laura Babcock. The men have pleaded not guilty to the charges.The Crown then played a video of Smich rapping.In the video, Smich is looking at an iPad with music playing in the background.“The b—h started off all skin and bone, now the b—h lay on some ashy stone,” Smich sings in the video. “Last time I saw her she was outside the home. If you go swimming you can find her phone.”Liberatore said he had never seen the video, but the rap Smich performed for him in the garage was “something like that.”The Crown alleges the pair killed Babcock in July 2012 at Millard’s Toronto home then burned her remains in a commercial incinerator that was found on Millard’s farm near Waterloo, Ont. The prosecution contends Babcock was killed for being the odd woman out in a love triangle with Millard and his girlfriend.Liberatore, 21, said he was 14 when he first met Smich outside an Oakville convenience store. Liberatore and a few other friends got Smich to buy them cigarettes. Later, Liberatore said, one of his friends would buy weed from Smich.After Smich talked about having killed someone, Liberatore said he and his two friends left the garage.“We were shocked, did that really happen? That must be B.S., there’s no way,” Liberatore told court.Under cross-examination from Smich’s lawyer, Thomas Dungey, Liberatore said he’s overdosed on drugs about six times and has a foggy memory.“I smoke myself into oblivion,” Liberatore told police in 2013, according to a police statement Dungey read in court.“That’s the state you were in, why your memory is so foggy, correct?” Dungey asked.“Yes,” Liberatore said.He also said he had been speaking with another potential witness about the case just a few days ago, but didn’t get into details, and he also admitted to reading several news headlines about the Babcock case in recent days.last_img read more

Nameblind hiring had no significant effect on visible minority candidates report

first_imgThe federal government says hiding the names of job applicants had no significant effect on whether those who identified as visible minorities were called in for an interview over a six-month period.A pilot project launched last April by the Public Service Commission of Canada sought to compare the results of traditional screening methods with name-blind recruitment in order to bolster diversity and inclusion in government ranks.The practice involves removing names and other identifying information such as country of origin from job applications to fight bias against people of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.In a report released this week, the commission says there was no significant difference for candidates from visible minority groups when their personal information was concealed.It also says applicants from all other groups were less likely to be brought in for an interview under that system compared to a traditional method.The commission notes that the results can’t be generalized to the entire public service because the pilot relied on departments that volunteered and used a non-random selection of external hiring processes.The project included 27 external job postings across 17 departments between April and October of last year, resulting in a sample of 2,226 candidates, of which 685 self-identified as visible minorities.The report is “just one of the many ways the PSC is exploring innovative approaches to ensure a diverse and representative workforce while supporting bias-free recruitment within the federal public service,” Patrick Borbey, president of the Public Service Commission of Canada, said in a statement.“We will continue to push boundaries in this area while maintaining the integrity of the federal public service’s non-partisan and merit-based staffing system.”The government said it will conduct audit work beginning in May to look at the success rate of applicants at key stages of the appointment process. It will also examine how name-blind principles could be included in the design of future technology changes to its recruitment systems.The report said audits have the advantage of analysing decisions that have already been made, which eliminates the possibility that people might change their behaviour because they know they are part of a pilot project.The federal government has said there is no evidence of bias in its current hiring practices.A 2012 study by University of Toronto researchers found job applicants with English-sounding names were 35 per cent more likely to receive a call back than those with Indian or Chinese names, which they said suggested an unconscious bias.Many orchestras made the switch to blind auditions, in which musicians play hidden by a screen, in the 1970s and 1980s, which led to a dramatic increase in the number of women hired, studies have shown.last_img read more

Halifax university joins movement offers students free menstrual products

first_imgHALIFAX – A Halifax university has become the first in Nova Scotia to offer its students free menstrual products, part of a national movement that has been gaining steam among student leaders.Nikki Jamieson, president of the Mount Saint Vincent University Students’ Union, said the products will be available at pickup locations across campus, and signs about where the products can be found will be posted in the women’s, men’s and gender neutral washrooms.“Not all folks that menstruate are female identifying. There are trans students, non-binary students and gender non-conforming students that would also need access to menstrual health products that wouldn’t necessarily feel comfortable walking into, say, a female-only washroom,” said Jamieson in an interview.“We want to make sure we can accommodate everybody and that everybody feels comfortable using the products they need.”Jamieson said it’s a win for the union, part of a growing number of student groups lobbying their university administrations to fund menstrual products. She hopes more institutions follow suit, including hospitals, businesses and public institutions.“It’s kind of a catch-22 though because it’s 2018… I kind of feel like we already should have been here,” she said.“The way we view menstrual health products is no different than toilet paper or paper towel. Menstruating bodies should not have to go out of their way to ask for these products that they essentially need. I think it’s important to note that menstruation is not a lifestyle choice. People just menstruate — it’s a bodily function.”Jamieson said the students’ union will continue to push to have the products available inside all campus washrooms.The “menstrual equity” movement has been gaining steam across Canada including in Toronto, Montreal, Calgary and Halifax.The University of Calgary offers free pads and tampons through its students’ union, while Ottawa’s Carleton University offers the products through its women’s centre.Over the past academic year, Toronto’s Centennial College has been resetting the coin-operated dispensers in campus restrooms to provide pads and sanitary napkins free of charge, rather than the standard 25-cent fee — part of its “Free the Tampon” project.At University of King’s College in Halifax, a local sexual health centre supplies menstrual hygiene products that are free for students to pick up outside student union offices.King’s Students’ Union president Lianne Xiao said in a news release that the change at Mount Saint Vincent was encouraging.“We’re hoping our administration follows suit in providing and funding menstrual health products at King’s to invest in women, non-binary, trans, and gender non-conforming students.” said Xiao.last_img read more

Indian Lankan officials to hold crucial meeting on Sampur project

Referring to statements made by some politicians against the project, Wijayapala, however, said “The CEB is for the project. My Cabinet Minister and Deputy Minister are for it.” Briefing select journalists of the status of the work of a high-level committee constituted by President Maithripala Sirisena in March this year in the light of a series of power cuts in the country, Eran Wickramaratne, Deputy Minister of the Public Enterprises Department and a member of the panel, said even as the committee was still holding deliberations and it had six more weeks to go for submitting its final report, the country’s direction would be towards clean energy. Pointing out that “considerable amount of work” had been done with regard to some coal power projects, Wickramaratne said “I won’t be quick to say ‘cancel them,’ while I am all for clean energy.” Calling for the execution of the proposed coal power projects, the Deputy Minster said “Sri Lankans have a living standard in which power continuation is taken for granted. We can’t afford to risk that.” He added that in the next few weeks, tenders would be invited for clean energy projects. (Colombo Gazette) Even as India’s coal-fired thermal power project in Sampur of the Eastern Province is facing opposition on environmental grounds, top officials of both the countries in charge of the project are to meet to discuss on the future course of action.Confirming that the Trincomalee Power Company Limited (TPCL) will be conducting a meeting of its Board of Directors, Anura Wijayapala, Chairman of the Ceylon Electricity Board and also the chief of the TPCL, a special purpose vehicle floated by the CEB and the NTPC of India for the project, told The Hindu that “at present, we are finalising tender documents. The Board will decide when the bids can be floated.” The fencing of the project site was underway. read more

Country pays tribute to Nathan Cirillo

It’s been an incredibly emotional day for the family of Corporal Nathan Cirillo and those who knew him. But it’s also been a day filled with emotion in the city of Hamilton.The funeral procession moved through the city’s downtown core. And the route was lined with thousands of people who came to honour the soldier who was shot while on ceremonial guard at the National War Memorial in our nation’s capital.If you are in the downtown core tonight — there are few signs and symbols left that give people an indication of what happened here today. But there’s none more powerful than the still growing memorial here at the armoury. This display of condolences is less than a block away from the church where the funeral was held today. And although so many made it here to pay tribute — so many others who wanted to were working or simply couldn’t make it.This is the moment the hearse left the Markey-Dermody Funeral Home around ten o’clock in the morning in East Hamilton. It’s the same place so many members of the public showed up thoughout the day Monday to pay their respects to Corporal Cirillo.From there, the procession made its way to Bayfront Park where a special ceremony took place at the Argyll Pavilion with the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada.As many of you know, Cirillo was a member of the Argylls. Their uniforms are well known in Hamilton. Those who visit or live in the James Street North area often see the Argylls training, and marching for various events, including the annual Remembrance Day ceremony. The sound of their bagpipes, a familiar sound here.But today is a very different day in this neighbourhood.As the country and the world looked on to see the procession move from Bayfront Park — south to York Boulevard. They saw soldiers in uniform who knew Cirillo who served with him — they were part of his military family — marching alongside his casket.Lining the streets of the route were people who’d never met Corporal Cirillo — but they were compelled to take part – to show their respect and condolences not only for Corporal Cirillo — but for his family, friends and fellow Argylls.And people continued to line the procession route down James Street North all the way past the armoury.If the emotions of the procession weren’t enough — it turned to heartbreak as we watched as Corporal Cirillo’s son Marcus following behind his father’s casket in his Argyll hat. read more

GE to buy oilfield equipment maker Lufkin in attempt to grow its

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email GE to buy oilfield equipment maker Lufkin in attempt to grow its oil and gas business by Jonathan Fahey, The Associated Press Posted Apr 8, 2013 7:24 am MDT NEW YORK, N.Y. – General Electric Co. has agreed to buy the oilfield equipment maker Lufkin Industries Inc. for $3.1 billion, furthering an effort by GE to grow its oil and gas operations.GE said Monday that it would pay Lufkin shareholders $88.50 per share, a 38 per cent premium over Lufkin’s closing price on Friday of $63.93.The companies valued the deal at $3.3 billion, which includes $200 million in debt to be assumed by GE.CEO Jeff Immelt is in the process of transforming GE from a sprawling conglomerate to one that is more tightly focused on providing services and equipment to industrial customers. The company has shed divisions such as NBC Universal and is shrinking its banking operations.Immelt indicated the company would use some of its enormous cash balance to buy mid-sized companies that fit well into what the company already does. GE makes aircraft engines, natural gas-fired turbines and generators, wind turbines, medical devices and locomotives.GE is putting particular focus on oil and gas, hoping to capitalize on the boom in extracting oil from difficult places, such as deep offshore, shale formations under several U.S. states, or older depleting oil fields. GE bought Wellstream, a maker of flexible pipes for gathering oil undersea, in 2010, and a division of the John Wood Group, a maker of pumps and control systems, in 2011.“Wells in the future are going to be more and more technically challenging,” said Dan Heintzelman, who runs GE’s oil and gas division, in an interview Monday.Lufkin, based in Lufkin, Texas, makes pumping equipment that helps drillers extract more oil out of older fields or ones that need to be pumped because the oil and gas underground is not under enough pressure to be forced to the surface naturally. Heintzelman said 94 per cent of wells will require some form of pumping, known in the industry as artificial lift.GE’s oil and gas related revenue has tripled since 2005, to $15 billion, accounting for 10 per cent of the company’s $147 billion total revenue last year.Christopher Glynn, an analyst at Oppenheimer, said the deal fits nicely into GE’s strategy. He said as oil and gas continues to get more expensive to produce there will be ample opportunity for GE’s growing oil and gas division to offer products and services to help keep those costs in check and make fields more productive.Lufkin shares climbed $24.03, or 38 per cent, to close at $87.96 Monday. GE shares rose 19 cents to close at $23.12.___Follow Jonathan Fahey on Twitter at read more

Seahawks Panthers chasing same wildcard possibilities

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The good news for the Carolina Panthers is they return home Sunday to face the Seattle Seahawks where they’ve won 10 straight games.The bad news is it’s highly unlikely the Panthers will play a playoff game in Charlotte, North Carolina, if they reach the post-season.The Seahawks (5-5) can relate.They and the Panthers (6-4) essentially find themselves competing for wild-card spots in the NFC with six games remaining given their chances of winning a division title and hosting a post-season game appear remote. Carolina has lost two straight on the road and fallen 3 1/2 games behind New Orleans in the NFC South, while the Seahawks trail the Los Angeles Rams by 4 1/2 games in the NFC West.“Right now, we can’t worry about what New Orleans is doing. We can’t worry about the playoff picture. We just have to win a game,” Panthers tight end Greg Olsen said. “In this league, it’s so easy to get caught up in, ‘If this team wins, if this team loses, (then) we can have home-field (advantage). … Hey, if we don’t win some games, we’re not going to be in the playoffs.”In terms of wild-card implications, this game looms as large as any in the NFC.Currently, the Panthers would be one wild-card team, while the Minnesota Vikings would be the other. But that could all change if the Seahawks continue their recent dominance over the Panthers.Russell Wilson is 5-2 against Cam Newton and Carolina.He has averaged 270.3 yards passing per game with 11 touchdown passes and six interceptions. Newton, on the other hand, has struggled mightily against the Seahawks with nine turnovers and only five TD passes.“They get after the quarterback,” Newton said when asked of his struggles against the Seahawks. “That’s what they do extremely well, and they’re very opportunistic in that. You know what they’re going to be in (defensively), they know you know what they’re going to be in, but they just play so fast and rally around the football.”Seahawks coach Pete Carroll wasn’t giving any hints as to how his team intends to slow one of the game’s most dangerous QBs.“If I tell you, then that would help them, huh?” Carroll said.MORE OF MOORED.J. Moore has been looking increasingly more like Carolina’s top receiver — and this week he may need to take on the role of No. 1 receiver with Devin Funchess listed as doubtful with a back injury that has kept him out of practice this week.Moore, the team’s first-round draft pick, caught seven passes for 157 yards and a touchdown in Carolina’s 20-19 loss to the Lions last week, including an 82-yard catch and run. Meanwhile, Funchess had a miserable game with five drops, including one in the end zone.If Funchess is out, the Seahawks can expect to see more of second-year wide receiver Curtis Samuel, who has been explosive in his limited playing time.SACK ATTACKFrank Clark is having a standout year in a contract season for the Seahawks. Clark has already tied his career high with 10 sacks with another six games to go. He has been a consistent threat off the edge and has seven sacks in the past five games.While Clark has been a menace, Seattle is still seeking a complementary pass rusher to work with Clark. Defensive tackle Jarran Reed is second on the team with 5 1/2 sacks, but no other player has more than two.Seattle had five sacks of Aaron Rodgers, but Carroll warned Newton is a completely different challenge.“I’m hoping that that will be a part again because if you noticed, we broke the pocket down and that’s important to do with Cam as well because he can get out and really scorch you too,” Carroll said.PRESSURING WILSONThe Panthers realize they need to get some pressure on Wilson and make him uncomfortable in the pocket.That hasn’t been Carolina’s strength this season as it ranks 23rd in the league in sacks entering the week with 23. Carolina isn’t getting much penetration inside, where defensive tackle Kawann Short has gone nine straight games without a sack after registering two in the season opener against Dallas.Wilson is expecting a close game.“We know these games against Carolina have always come down to the wire,” Wilson said. “We have a lot of respect for how they play the game. They play the game the right way, they play the game fast and physical, they play the game smart.”THREE-HEADED ATTACKSeattle has the top running game in the NFL and it continues to be a collaborative effort. Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny and Mike Davis all have had 100-yard games this season.Carson is clearly the primary ball carrier and had 17 carries for 83 yards in Seattle’s win over Green Bay last week. But Penny has been earning more opportunities as his rookie year has progressed, and Davis was the closer for Seattle against the Packers as the one getting carries on the final drive.Seattle has rushed for at least 150 yards as a team in seven straight games.GOTTA GANOPanthers kicker Graham Gano missed an extra point and a field goal in Carolina’s 20-19 loss to the Lions last week. So when coach Ron Rivera opted to go for 2 in the game’s final seconds instead of tying the game, it appeared to show a lack of confidence in his veteran kicker.However, Gano returns home this week where he has made 39 straight field goals.__AP Sports Writer Tim Booth in Seattle contributed to this report.__For more NFL coverage: and Reed, The Associated Press read more

Irish fans remember Doors founder Ray Manzarek

Ray, I felt totally in sync with you musically. It was like we were of one mind, holding down the foundation for Robby and Jim to float on top of. I will miss my musical brother.Speaking to the Eoin Butler of the Irish Times back in 2010 Manzarek – who was traveling to Dublin to play at the Grand Canal Theatre – said that he had memories of jamming with Van Morrison during The Doors’ first gig in LA.He also said that he blamed the “dark, Irish drunk” alter ego of Jim Morrison for taking his friend’s life in Paris.Ray Manzarek, right, and Robby Krieger light candles at the grave of Jim Morrison at the Pere Lachaise cemetery in Paris in 2011 (AP Photo/Jacques Brinon)Fans of The Doors and Manzarek have been remembering him from the several times he played in Dublin.

UCLA wades through damages from pipe flooding

first_imgLOS ANGELES — The rupture of a nearly century-old water main that ripped a 15-foot hole through Sunset Boulevard and turned a swath of the University of California, Los Angeles into a mucky swamp points to the risks and expense many cities face with miles of water lines installed decades ago.Much of the piping in the country dates to the first half of the previous century, with some installed even before Theodore Roosevelt was in the White House.Age can take a toll. There are 240,000 breaks a year, according to the National Association of Water Companies. a problem compounded by stress from an increasing population and budget crunches that slow the pace of replacement.The group says 45 percent of water pipes in the U.S. are in poor shape, and the average age of a broken water main is 47 years.In Los Angeles, a million feet of piping has been delivering water for at least 100 years, officials say.When taps are running and swimming pools are brimming, no one pays attention to water lines, typically invisible underground.But with the passage of time the country has reached a point where vast amounts of piping is wearing out at about the same time, said Greg Kail of the nonprofit American Water Works Association.last_img read more

Breaking Down Image Comics Genres Within Genres

first_img Buy This Comic: DEATH ORB #1Buy This Comic: MAN-EATERS #1 Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. It’s rare that the opportunity to sit in a room with four remarkably talented comic creators and listen to them not announce new projects or promote a publisher but instead have a frank and in-depth discussion about genre presents itself. Those lucky enough to attend Book Expo America had the chance to experience just this. Image Comics’ Genres Within Genres panel assembled Tee Franklin (Bingo Love), Charles Soule (Curse Words, Daredevil), Dean Haspiel (The Red Hook), and Kit Seaton (Norroway) under the moderation of Brigid Alverson for a discussion on genre, its boundaries, and the role it plays in telling stories through the medium of comics. After some brief introductions, Alverson got the conversation underway by observing that each creator had described their work as falling within the realm of different genres, be it queer romance or superhero. Haspiel countered, suggesting that superheroes encompass many genres, be it crime or speculative fiction. He argued that fights and superpowers aren’t what dictate the genre, which Soule quickly pointed out very much is a genre in and of itself. Those kinds of stories do exist, and should.  Alverson then asked the panelists if they believe that graphic novels have their own unique genres outside of superheroes, citing Franklin’s Bingo Love as an example of a book that breaks new ground in terms of genre and graphic novels. Franklin recounted recently being asked why the book doesn’t take a more serious tone in writing and art. She offered that the story and art are what they are for a reason. Soule suggested that an artist other than Bingo Love artist Jenn St. Onge might have affected the perceived genre of the book. Franklin disagreed in the specific case of Bingo Love, stating that the story is so genre-specific that an alternative art style wouldn’t obscure that.This led to a discussion about art influencing the perception of genre. Haspiel recalled drawing a Harvey Pekar graphic novel and being called out for his style looking too “superhero”-esque. Alverson observed that his superhero work has always been, “lighter and easier to decode.” The visuals, Alverson and Soule stated, are integral to genre. Soule likened it to recut trailers on YouTube, the kind in which a horror movie is recut to look like a romantic comedy. Choices, from ink work to framing, dictate the ways we perceive genre in comics.Alverson then shifted the focus of the panel to Seaton, asking her what role genre plays in adapting classic faerie tales. Seaton and her sister, while making their book, made an effort to blur the lines of genre so as to not create constraints for young readers, but found that changing the book from black and white to color drastically affected the feel of the book.Haspiel touched on that, discussing how years and years of early superhero comics dictated the perceived genre of superhero comics and that this is present in any genre and in any art form. It takes, as Haspiel suggested, something bold like the Run-DMC/Aerosmith collaboration to blur the lines and shift perceptions. “We have that latitude now,” he stated.CURSE WORDS #1 1:25 MARGARET INCENTIVE VARIANT COVER CAs the conversation progressed, Haspiel said that he feels genre is something of a promise to a reader, comparing it to a Chekhov’s Gun equivalent: if you introduce a gun in a scene, it has to go off. Similarly, if your story is marketed as a horror story or a superhero comic, there are certain things that you are promising that have to happen. Soule, the creator most experienced with writing licensed properties, offered some perspective, saying that while there are certain beats that have to be present in a Daredevil story, he’s far more flexible than a character like Darth Vader. Vader has to be written the same way every single time because of how specific the “recipe” for the character is. Alverson then asked Franklin if, given a lengthy absence she took from reading comics, she realized that by writing a romance graphic novel she was breaking new ground. Franklin said that she put little thought into it, that the graphic novel was simply inspired by a commercial she’d seen. Little thought was put into the romance genre’s place in comics. She was far more concerned with creating a story that kids today need, the kind of story she wishes she’d be able to read growing up. While she doesn’t plan on revisiting the genre of romance any time soon, she’s happy to “plant the seed” for more stories like these. Alverson asked Soule how he feels about his work’s relationship with genre. Soule said that he thinks less in terms of genre when crafting a story and more regarding how a story relates to his life. For example, his new novel The Oracle Year sprang from his time as a lawyer during which he often found himself wishing he could somehow know what the next few years of his life would hold.After a brief discussion on Seaton’s experience with webcomics and building a platform through the medium, the conversation came back around to genre. Of the panelists, Haspiel’s work most frequently defies or blends genre. Haspiel talked about effectively playing DJ, mixing and matching bits and pieces of genres he likes in his work, creating something unique to his perspective out of those smaller parts. He said he tends to shirk from the straightforward genre, citing an offer years ago to pitch Hulk: Noir for Marvel and coming up short. Later though, when given more freedom with genre, he came up with the Wood God story for Marvel’s Strange Tales. As Haspiel wrapped up, Alverson made the panel’s first effort to define genre and did a pretty great job at doing so: “Genre is what other people write.” She suggested that it’s easy to fall into the constraints of genre both as a reader and a writer. Haspiel brought up an earlier comment by Alverson, who said that she doesn’t care for science fiction, and suggested that the film Arrival is a great example of one that defies its roots in sci-fi and becomes something greater.The panel wrapped up with a discussion amongst the panelists regarding what genres they enjoy reading—for someone whose big comics debut is a romance graphic novel, Franklin is about as die-hard a horror fan as you’re likely to find—and which genres they don’t have any desire to write. The relationship between genre fiction and comics is strong. The bond between the two is nearly inseparable. However, genre is ultimately a set of rules, and as these creators proved today, if you understand those rules well enough there’s no reason you can’t break them.center_img Stay on targetlast_img read more

Remand for suspected people smuggler after 46 migrants picked up Updated

first_imgThe Nicosia District court on Thursday remanded for eight days, a Turkish man arrested in connection with bringing 46 Syrian immigrants into the republic on Wednesday evening.They were picked up on the Akaki to Avlona road at 9.30pm and later taken to the reception centre at Kokkinotrimithia.The arrivals are all men from Syria except six minors.The arrested man, aged 20, who was with them tried to flee to the north as soon as he spotted police officers, police said.When he was stopped and searched a knife was found in his possession, they said.He is suspected of being a member of a gang smuggling Syrians migrants to the republic from Turkey’s Mersin via the north and the buffer zone.The court heard in the morning that 29 migrants arrived in Akaki on April 10 and 40 just one day later, all of them Syrian men.They confirmed they arrived from Mersin and paid around $4,000 to $5,000 for the journey.According to the investigator, lately around 250 people arrived from Syria, describing it as “a scourge that has plagued Cyprus and Europe over the last few years.”He reported that the description given by some of the migrants of those who helped them get to Cyprus match the appearance of the suspect who attempted to flee on Wednesday.The suspect reportedly admitted that he has helped migrants to cross, together with two Turkish Cypriots.The investigator of the case said that the migrants will give statements facilitated by an interpreter, a time-consuming process, which is why he asked for a remand of eight days. You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoModernizeIf Your Home Has Old Roofing, Read ThisModernizeUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
