First Nations Olympian Brigette Lacquette arrives home to a warm welcome

first_imgBrittany HobsonAPTN NewsIt was a flurry of photographs and hugs as dozens of proud fans greeted Brigette Lacquette at the Winnipeg airport on Monday night.A day after the closing ceremonies at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, Lacquette arrived home from her award-winning performance with Canada’s women’s hockey team.Lacquette said she expected a few family and friends to meet her, but was surprised to see otherwise.“I was warned, but I didn’t realize how many people were going to be here,” she told reporters. “It was definitely very special for me.”The 25-year-old defence player brings home a silver medal after an upset 3-2 shootout loss to Team USA on Feb. 22.Reflecting on the loss, Lacquette said it was a tough pill to swallow.“We left it all out there,” she said. “Obviously it was very tough not to come back with the gold.”Despite the loss Lacquette said playing in the Olympics was a ‘dream come true.’ Originally from the small community of Mallard, Man. Lacquette made history as the first First Nations woman to play for Canada’s Olympic hockey team.An accomplishment she doesn’t take lightly.“I feel like I’ve opened a lot of doors,” said Lacquette. “I feel like I’m that person, that role model for young girls across Canada [who] come from remote communities to be like, ‘you know what I can do that. I can do what Brigette did.’”Kurtia Yetman is one of the many young girls who call Lacquette a role model. The 11-year-old, originally from the northern Manitoba community of Nelson House, has her eyes set on a few prizes, and says it’s all thanks to Lacquette.“She’s my inspiration,” said Yetman. “I want to be on Team Canada. I want to be the second First Nations woman to play on Team Canada’s women’s team.”In the meantime, Yetman was happy to get a hug and take a photo with Lacquette.Lacquette’s parents were also on hand for the homecoming. Both her mother and father had to chance to travel to South Korea to watch their daughter play. Her father says the last month has been a whirlwind.“It’s so hard mentally, emotionally and physically,” said Terance Lacquette.“Just to have her home and relax for the next couple of days is going to be good for her and good for the family as well.”last_img read more

Afghanistan UN urges respect for continuing audit as process resumes in Kabul

In a written statement, the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) “urged the full commitment of the parties for the unprecedented and vital endeavour that should be completed without any further delays and interruptions.”Afghanistan’s Independent Election Commission (IEC), under whose authority the audit is being carried out, with international supervision, resumed the process on 3 August, following the Eid holiday, but without the participation of representatives of one of the two candidates, Abdullah Abdullah.Dr. Abdullah’s campaign, the Reform and Partnership Team, rejoined the process today after having sought clarification on the audit, for which the UN has been jointly requested, by the two candidates, to coordinate international supervision.“After today’s consultations, we expected that the process of the audit will continue smoothly and without any interruptions,” Ján Kubiš, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Afghanistan and UNAMA head said on Saturday, in a press conference alongside IEC Chairman Ahmad Yusuf Nuristani.Among some of the topics clarified in the meeting with Dr. Abdullah were what would happen with ‘ghost’ polling stations which had been closed to voters due to security concerns yet still collected ballots, and then what would happen with the ballot boxes once they are reviewed.In a statement today, Mr. Kubiš added that he fully understands that Dr. Abdullah, and his opponent, Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai, would need reassurances concerning the audit process.“It could not be otherwise given the high stakes and widespread mobilization of supporters they were both able to achieve over two rounds of voting,” he said.Meanwhile, more than 200 full-time international observers – hailing from the European Union and including its Election Assessment Team and the American non-governmental organizations National Democratic Institute, Democracy International and Creative, as well as Asian Network for Free Elections, are now in auditing warehouses in the capital.According to a UN proposal, which has been agreed to by both candidates, they joined IEC audit teams to scrutinize some 23,000 boxes of ballots from the 14 June run-off using a 16-point checklist to look for things such as inconsistencies in marking the boxes or obvious patterns.That information will then be reviewed by the IEC Board of Commissioners in open meetings –in the presence of international and domestic observers, candidate agents, the media and UN advisors – where they will decide to accept, recount or invalidate the results.That process before the IEC Board is not expected to begin “before the end of the week,” according to UNAMA.The entire audit process has involved a mass-scale campaign to safely move the ballot boxes to Kabul, accompanied by IEC officials, campaign agents and Afghan security forces, in an airlift operation jointly launched by the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) and the UN.Some of the boxes are still en route and expected to arrive in Kabul “in the next few days,” the Mission said, where, as requested by the two candidates, they will be secured by ISAF.UNAMA has said that these “extraordinary international mobilization and transport efforts” are meant to provide Afghans with “unprecedented reassurance that the popular will which they bravely expressed on 5 April and 14 June will be known and respected.”The proposal for the audit varies from past polls, where election officials relied on sampling and trends to extrapolate the extent of possible fraud.Auditing every single audit box is a “unique opportunity,” said senior UN international elections expert, Jeff Fischer, who directly advises the IEC Board on international best practices.“It meets international best practice, is consistent with the Afghan constitution and laws, and will produce a robust, credible and thorough audit that detects and eliminates fraudulent ballots while protecting valid votes,” he said.The audit is led from the UN side by the UN Development Programme’s Enhancing Legal and Electoral Capacity for Tomorrow (UNDP ELECT II) project, which has spent the last four years promoting the capacity of Afghan electoral institutions. read more

Obese mothers risk shortening lives of children by up to 17 years

first_imgObese and overweight mothers risk shortening the lives of their children by up to 17 years a new study suggests.Scientists in Belgium discovered a strong link between Body Mass Index (BMI) and the length of telomeres in research involving women and their babies.Telomeres are the protective caps at the end chromosomes which shield DNA in a similar way to the plastic aglets at the end of shoe-laces, preventing unravelling.The length of telomeres is a good indication of biological age so scientists were keen to find out if length differed in babies whose mothers were overweight or obese.They discovered that for each increase in BMI point above a normal level, telomeres were around 50  base pairs shorter, the equivalent of  being 1.1 to 1.6 years older.BMI is calculated by measuring height compared to weight and normal range falls between 18.5 and 24.9. For the most obese women, who had a BMI of 40, telomere length suggested that their children were 17 years older biologically, placing them high risk of illness and early death.Prof Tim Nawrot, of Hasselt University, one of the study authors, said: “Compared with newborns of mothers with a normal BMI, newborns of women with obesity are older on a molecular level, because shortened telomere lengths mean that their cells have shorter lifespans.“So maintaining a healthy BMI during a woman’s reproductive age may promote molecular longevity in the offspring.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Scientists took blood samples from the umbilical cords of newborn babies to determine the length of their telomeres  Writing in the journal journal BMC Medicine, the team concluded:“Newborns from obese mothers compared with newborns from normal weight mothers were biologically approximately 12 to 17 years older, based on telomeric year equivalence in adulthood.”Researchers examined 743 mothers, who were 17 to 44 years of age, and their newborn babies and measured telomere length in umbilical cord blood which was drawn immediately after delivery. The authors ruled out many other potential factors that may be associated with telomere length, including parents’ age at birth, socio-economic class, ethnicity, maternal smoking status, newborns’ gender or birth weight.Around one in three women in Britain now give birth when they are overweight, so the authors say the findings could have wide implications for the health of the population in future.Prof Nawrot added: “Prior to our study, there was no evidence of an association between pre-pregnancy BMI and newborn telomere length, although meta-analyses suggest an association between BMI and telomere length in adults.“Our results add to the growing body of evidence that high maternal BMI impacts fetal programming, which could lead to altered fetal development and later life diseases.“The public health impact of our findings is considerable as in affluent societies about 30 per cent of women of reproductive age are overweight.”Prof Neena Modi, president of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health said:“This intriguing study provides further evidence of the life-long impact of maternal obesity on a child’s life. The study makes clear that babies born to obese mothers may be at greater vulnerability to chronic diseases in adult life.“The study provides a strong justification for intervention in pregnancy, infancy, childhood and young adult life to tackling the national burden of obesity. It means advising women of reproductive age to maintain a healthy weight, supporting parents, and creating healthy societies to ensure infants and children do not become overweight.” Scientists took blood samples from the umbilical cords of newborn babies to determine the length of their telomeres last_img read more

Xenophon warns of data sweep danger

first_img“People assume you can’t get people’s phone records without a warrant, but it turns out you can”Nick Xenophon says the AFP’s ability to sweep individuals’ private data without a warrant could deter whistle-blowers from acting on their consciences. The senator’s comments come as revelations mount over US intelligence agencies collecting massive amounts of private information on American citizens and other people the US finds of interest. The man who made the recent disclosures in America, Edward Snowden, a former intelligence analyst, is now fighting extradition in Hong Kong, making his case away from the clutches of the US legal system. Meanwhile, it has come to light that not only are Australians likely to be swept up by US data intercepts, but they are also targeted by their own government’s surveillance programs. At a Senate estimates hearing on May 30, AFP Deputy Commissioner Mike Phelan was questioned by Xenophon about the AFP’s ability to examine phone records, as well as private information from Facebook and Google+ accounts. Asked if the AFP needed a warrant to obtain such information, Mr Phelan said that a warrant was not required for ‘Non-content data’. Such powers mean that the AFP can, without a warrant, get the name of the person who made the call, whom they called, when they called, for how long, and from what location, but cannot listen to the content of the call. “People assume you can’t get people’s phone records without a warrant, but it turns out you can,” Xenophon told the Sydney Morning Herald. “We are now talking about mass interceptions across a vast grid. You can use this information to triangulate, work out whole networks of who is talking to whom and when and where, without a warrant.” Software programs like IBM’s Analyst’s Notebook allows such data to be automatically visualised, showing connections between a person and everyone he or she speaks to. Deputy Commissioner Phelan explained that there were three types of categories for such monitoring. One, to enforce the criminal law; the second, to find missing persons; and the third to enforce an order to impose a fine. Asked how many authorisations were given in recent years, Phelan reported that there were 50,841 in the financial year 2010-11 and 43,006 were given in 2011-12. These figures suggest around 800 to 900 such intercepts are being made every week. Once the AFP have the data, it remains in the police database permanently. During the estimates hearing, Xenophon told the Deputy Commissioner that whilst he respected the importance of the AFP’s work in relation to organised crime and drug smuggling, when it came to issues of sections 70 and 79 of the Crimes Act – the alleged divulging of official secrets, otherwise known as leaking: “[the AFP] actually build up a pretty incredible database that could go back a number of years, of, for instance, a journalist or even a member of Parliament; who they spoke to, and who they have been speaking to over a number of years. “You have quite a database under this authorisation power,” asserted the senator. The AFP says that in the past year they received only five requests to pursue leaks. Xenophon’s concern is that the existence of these powers could harm the national interest by deterring whistle-blowers. “This has a chilling effect on people coming forward to raise issues of public importance when you know every phone record and every email to your computer can be dug up without a warrant,” he told reporters. “Paradoxically, wrongdoers can continue to act with impunity because people won’t be prepared to come forward. “It’s ridiculous to equate terrorism or organised crime with public servants coming forward with concerns about malfeasance.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

In the line of duty for the sake of the most vulnerable

first_imgWhen Jenny Mikakos was appointed as the Minister for Families, Children and Youth Affairs in the newly-elected Andrews government, she knew she was taking up one of the most demanding and challenging posts in the state government of Victoria.Family violence, ice and drug use in general, combined with a culture of cover up and corruption in the state child protection services, had been creating headlines for all the wrong reasons, making it obvious that the decades-old system was entrenched in corruption, unable to cope with the needs and challenges of today.Allegations about rape and sexual abuse of children and young teenagers under state care were paraded in the media. The horrific stories of neglect had no end.The system was broken and Mikakos had to find ways to improve it, if not fix it. The task was of herculean proportions. In the 14 months that followed her appointment, more than $300 million of additional funding went into new and existing programs aimed at bettering the life of family violence victims, the improvement of child protection and family services, as well as programs to implement the changes needed in order to meet current demand.The Royal Commission into Family Violence, an initiative of the Andrews government, will hand down its recommendations on 29 March and the state government has committed to take them on board.It is obvious that things are moving in this area but the question remains: are they moving in the right direction?After more than a year on the job the minister now has a better understanding of social policy and the bigger picture, but also of how these issues affect the most vulnerable of the Greek Australian community.In this context Neos Kosmos spoke to Minister Mikakos.You took up a position that many of your colleagues would be reluctant to. The child protection system was in crisis. In the meantime, the driving forces contributing to family dysfunction such as family violence, drug use and mental health problems are still on the rise and you are on the receiving end of all this. What is your assessment of the child support system’s current situation? Jenny Mikakos (JM): I’ve got the honour of having a portfolio that has a big impact in society. Families are experiencing a range of complex issues. Why there is family dysfunction and why the children are being abused or neglected, and as a result of that end up to the state’s child protection system, are issues that are largely unseen to many people in the community. It is the ugly face of our society and we tend to ignore it. What we have been doing is looking at how we intervene earlier and provide support to families. That’s why we had the Royal Commission into Family Violence, which will hand its recommendations down to the government at the end of this month. This will lead to sweeping changes on how we provide social policy and social services in our state. Family violence is a very big factor in the families who are in the child protection system, so we look at how we promote relationships in our society and this starts at a young age. We need to encourage children to interact with each other respectfully, irrespective of differences whether it’s cultural, a disability, or any other issue. We need to be mindful of the fact that children see what their parents are doing and that we have to break the generational cycle. We know that the boys who see their fathers hit their mothers can grow up and become perpetrators themselves, while the girls that see violence among their parents can grow up to have self-esteem issues and have a particular understanding about what is normalised behaviour in a relationship. So it’s very important that we recognise that as a society; this is an issue that affects one in three women and one in four children. There is no doubt also that the ice epidemic is causing significant issues, resulting in more and more children coming into the child protection system – in fact, child protection reports in Australia have doubled in the last five years. In this financial year we are expecting 100,000 reports in Victoria alone. Currently we have 8,000 children in out of home care, residential care, foster care, kinship care (living with a family member – there are a lot of grandparents out there looking after their grandchildren). Four hundred children live in residential care. So we handed down a record budget in terms of child services, in total $257 million of new funding – a 17 per cent increase compared to the budget of the previous government. Now we are spending a billion dollars on the child protection services of Victoria, with a bigger emphasis on early intervention.Can you be more specific? JM: I inherited a system that was in crisis and there was no doubt that there would be problems. When I was in opposition there were media stories about children being sexually abused while they were in out of home care. This is why, in the first 100 days being a minister, I made a significant announcement; we introduced spot audits in residential care units for the first time. They never existed before. The department now goes on visits and makes sure those children are being well looked after. I increased the funding so that staff can be put on overnight, so that they can adequately look after these young people. And there are very traumatised young people in residential care who had been abused and sometimes they can exhibit challenging behaviour, so I recently appointed a commissioner for young people. We are prepared to ensure that the department is accountable for its performance to get the best possible outcomes. In the first 100 days we also made an announcement on our foster care recruitment and retention strategy. We spent some money on a big advertising campaign in January looking for more foster carers because I do not want children to be put in residential care just because there are no other options for them. The best outcome for children is to live in a home, to live with a family, so I want foster carers from diverse backgrounds, including from the Greek community.There is a common belief in the Greek Australian community that we are immune from these issues. True or false? JM: I want to stress that family dysfunction, family violence, drug use, as well as child neglect, are not issues confined to one part of society. It’s across every class, every ethnicity. It’s sad that it’s been a taboo subject in our community. I do notice when I see Greek names come up and I think it’s now time we start talking more openly. So yes, I do see children from families of Greek background ending up in the child protection system. As far as family violence is concerned, the royal commission has heard evidence about children of our community who are physically assaulting their parents. We’ve got young adult males who in some cases have particular behavioural issues and they can be very intimidating to their mothers in particular, extracting money from them for drugs. There are many mothers out there who are very reluctant to get the police involved because they worry about what will happen to their children, especially their sons, and they do not want to see them locked up in jail. So they are putting up with some very difficult behaviour and I do not think that anybody should put up with that. It is important that people seek help when things like that are happening. And this is happening, it is true. As a community we want to believe that we value the family unit and that our culture puts extra emphasis on its supportive mechanisms. What you are saying, though, is that we are slowly moving away from this core principle of our cultural understanding of family. JM: Unfortunately that is true and I have a bit of a theory about why this is happening. I think the very close ties that existed in our community, like with extended family, in the first and second generation have broken down, and I now see alarming levels of third and fourth generation kids getting into trouble with the police, with drugs, with a whole range of things. I think that’s because all the protective factors that we had as a community when we were a little bit more insular have broken down. We lost those protective factors. To be fair, I think there were a lot of women who had been in very unhappy marriages in the first generation, who just would never have thought about leaving and were victims of family violence. There was a lot of that hidden away back then. I am not glorifying the ’50s and ’60s saying all was perfect back then. But I think the stronger extended family networks, community networks, just made the families more resilient, and these are breaking down. I am disappointed seeing this. We as a community aren’t quite aware of it yet. It’s complicated but it is certainly happening. What does the future hold in this area? JM: I cannot pre-empt the budget, but the premier has said that we will implement all the recommendations of the royal commission. That makes it pretty clear of the direction the government is going. The premier has made clear that this is the number one social policy area that we are going to respond to. I see it as being very closely linked to the challenges that the child protection system is experiencing. This is a generational thing; you’re never going to be able to eliminate family violence in 12 months. This is going to take a whole lot of effort by both community and government, to acknowledge that we have to work together on this issue. And I say to men, who might recognise that they have a problem, if you don’t do it for yourself, do it for your children, think about the impact you are having on the next generation and your children. It is now time to break the cycle. It has been left under the carpet for too long. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Henderson defends Nations League

first_imgEngland international midfielder Jordan Henderson has leaped to the defense of the new UEFA Nations League tournament ongoing between European countries.Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp described it as “the most senseless competition in the world of football” when asked what he thought of the new competition ahead of the international break.However, Henderson who played in England’s goalless draw behind closed doors in Croatia on Friday night has defended a competition that is intended to reduce the number of meaningless friendlies played during international breaks and provide increased opportunities to qualify for major competitions.The Liverpool captain is expected to miss England’s third group game against Spain in Seville on Monday, after picking up a booking during Friday’s game against Croatia.It was a really good performance: Henderson Manuel R. Medina – August 25, 2019 According to Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson there are many areas of improvement at the club as the team is in their campaign beginning.“As a player, you want to win every game – even if it’s friendly,” said Henderson, according to Sky Sports.“When you’re a footballer, you play to win.”“And for us, it’s important because it has an effect on the groups of the Euros and the seeding. It’s important for us to win, especially against big nations like Croatia and Spain.”“We want to take the next level, beating teams like that.

The Latest in FlatPanel Displays

first_img We don’t have to preach the cause of the flat-panel monitor anymore. Everybody knows they’re affordable, space-saving and easy on the eyes. The question now is, Which LCD monitor should you buy?The 17 and 19-inch flat panels are practically budget models these days. The real action is happening in the slightly larger 20 and 21-inch screens. They’re still affordable, and they’re not so enormous that they dwarf your desk or make you feel like you’re sitting in the front row at the local cineplex. We rounded up a good selection of 20-inch LCDs suitable for general business use. These models tend to skim in at prices under $400 and, in some cases, under $300.There are certain features you can expect to find in a solid 20-inch business monitor. Look for both digital and analog inputs. That means that you’ll be able to hook up to both older analog equipped desktops as well as newer machines with digital outputs. A three-year warranty is standard. Widescreen designs are incredibly popular right now, mirroring a trend in notebook displays. If you plan on viewing video and wide spreadsheets or tiling multiple windows, this is a nice design feature. Most monitors in this range are VESA-compliant to be wall-mounted if you choose.You will run into a host of technical specs such as contrast ratio, dot pitch, response time and brightness. Technophiles, especially those who frequently work with graphics or multimedia applications, will want to spend some time com-paring and contrasting these. Response time in particular has been getting a lot of attention. Faster generally is better–a 10-millisecond response time should give a better video performance than a 20-ms response time. Both the ViewSonic VG2030wm and the Hewlett-Packard LP2045w boast 5-ms response times. But the best measure is still personal experience. If you have the opportunity to try a monitor before you buy, put it through its paces with a DVD and note whether the video has any digital noise or ghosting. Look for smooth, clean video performance.Extra features can make the difference when you’re shopping for a moni-tor. The $399 (all prices street) Dell UltraSharp 2007WFP, for example, comes with a built-in four-port USB 2.0 hub, picture-in-picture capabilities and the ability to double as an HD-compatible TV. The $329 ViewSonic VG2030wm comes stocked with integrated speakers.When it comes to budget 20-inch LCD monitors, you might have to make some trade-offs to get that ultra-affordable price point. Pivot is usually the first feature to go. If you need to work with spreadsheets and other long documents, then you’ll want to look for pivot capabilities and pay the few extra dollars. General adjustability can make a big difference when it comes to viewing comfort. That includes height adjustment, swivel and tilt. The Westinghouse Digital LCM-20v5 hits a very attractive sub $300 price point with a fast 8-ms response time, but it is somewhat limited in adjustability.It might be tempting to shop for the biggest monitor you can afford, but your best bet may be to invest in two smaller monitors. A dual 20-inch moni-tor setup won’t stress your budget too much, but it will boost your productivity and give you tons of viewing space for multiple programs and windows. There are plenty of different LCD manufacturers to look into. Also check out offerings from Envision, Gateway, LaCie, Lenovo, Planar and Sony. All those options mean you have a variety of 20, 21, and even 22-inch flat-panel monitors to choose from. Just match up your budget to the feature set you desire.

Anyone who has read Anne Frank’s moving diary charting the perils that her family went through under the Nazi occupation will naturally want to see where she lived for all those years. Unfortunately that equates to a lot of people, and the house itself is, naturally, pretty tiny, which means long queues. Another way to connect with her experience in the Secret Annex is to go and see the play ANNE, which is on at the Theater Amsterdam until December 2015 (show times vary, adult tickets from €35/£25). Don’t worry about not being able to understand what’s going on: the show has a nifty multilingual translation system that makes use of a tablet in front of you, so you can see subtitles, read a synopsis or listen to an audio translation as the play unfolds (pre-booking essential). And if you’re looking for more things to do in Amsterdam, from bike tours to indoor markets, then check out our guide. Credit: ©Carlos Lorenzo, CC BY-NC-ND 2.09. Berlin – the alternative to Checkpoint CharlieCheckpoint Charlie was a famous border crossing before the fall of the Berlin wall, but nowadays it’s little more than a photo opportunity in the middle of a busy street. With the wall long gone, it’s difficult to imagine what the place was like – but the Hohenschönhausen Memorial not too far away provides an intact, and chilling, depiction of life in the divided city. The Hohenschönhausen prison was used to detain those who attempted to cross the Berlin wall to reach the west, and many were subject to physical and psychological torture by the Stasi (East German secret police). The prison wasn’t stormed by demonstrators after the fall of the wall because most people didn’t know it existed, and in the early 1990s it was transformed into a memorial by former inmates, some of whom provide guided tours – tours in English take place daily at 2.30pm and cost €3/£2, but not all tours are given by eyewitnesses.

Prague – the most interesting art isn’t in the cathedralSt. Vitus Cathedral is a mightily impressive building. Its construction spanned centuries from 1344 to 1929, and as such it shows a fascinating melange of influences from Gothic to Art Deco. But unless you’ve got an eye for religious art, it can be hard to really get enthused by the treasures inside. The works of Prague artist David Cerny, on the other hand, are a little more provocative. His art has been described as “rage mixed with irreverence”, qualities exhibited in his installation outside the Kafka Museum, featuring two men urinating onto a map of the Czech Republic. Even better, if you text a word to a number on the side of the sculpture, the men will swivel their bronze penises to spell it out. Cerny’s artwork, from giant babies to giant bottoms with viewing windows, can be found all over the city. But while you’re hunting for his sculpture of a foetus in a drainpipe, here are a few other attractions to try. 5. Buenos Aires – there’s somewhere more colourful and kitsch than La BocaThe tourists flock to the La Boca district in Buenos Aires to see the brightly painted houses, buy locally made artwork and watch couples dance the tango. But there isn’t a huge amount to see once you’ve made it to the end of the main street and the colourful houses have dried up. For a lengthier dose of kitsch and colour, take a day trip to Tierra Santa on the edge of town, which claims to be the world’s first religious theme park. Not only does it boast a Last Supper complete with animatronic apostles, it also features a brightly painted 12-metre-high Jesus that’s resurrected hourly. Once you’ve finished riding the ‘Rotating Ark of Joseph’, check out these other places in our Buenos Aires guide. Or if you prefer your theme parks creepy rather than kitsch, take a look at our run down of abandoned attractions.

Dublin – not the National MuseumThe Archaeology branch of the National Museum of Ireland is packed full of ancient examples of Celtic art and all sorts of Viking treasures. But considering that the museum houses around 2 million objects, fatigue can set in all too quickly. For a memorable but thankfully shorter expedition, pop around the corner to Molesworth Street, where you’ll find probably the world’s least secret Freemasons’ society. Tours of the Grand Lodge on Molesworth Street take place Monday to Friday at 2.30pm in June, July and August (call the number on the website to arrange an appointment outside these months) and cost just €2/£1.50. You’ll get a conducted tour of the nineteenth century building, which is packed with all sorts of pyramids, sphinxes and star symbols. And while you’re in there, why not ask them who shot JFK? If you get a few brooding looks, not to worry, you can always flee to one of these welcoming bars.center_img Credit: ©Sean Gallup/Getty Images News10. Copenhagen – the Christiansborg Palace’s hippy cousinChristiansborg Palace is the seat of the Danish parliament, and parts are also used by the monarchy, making it a tourist 2-for-1. It’s mind-bogglingly opulent, stuffed with elaborate tapestries and gold chandeliers, which is lovely if you like that sort of thing. But if you’re kind of person who’d rather throw eggs at the Queen than accept a knighthood from her, then try Christiania instead. This enclave was set up by hippies in the early 1970s on the site of a military barracks, and after a long bureaucratic struggle, the area was handed over to the community by the Danish government in 2012. Around 1,000 free thinkers and artisans live here and Christiania is home to various concert halls, vegetarian eateries, workshops and the Gay House, a meeting place for LGBT individuals. Locals offer guided tours at 3pm on weekends (daily during summer), starting from the main entrance. If you’re hankering for more cheap days out in Copenhagen, check out our guide to seeing the city on a budget. 2. London – the Natural History Museum’s quirky relativeThe Natural History Museum in Kensington is amazing and utterly huge, but it can also be a Kafka-esque nightmare in peak season, as you attempt to navigate its labyrinthine, never-ending corridors through a seething crowd of frazzled parents and children screaming “MUMMY I WANT TO SEE THE DINOSAURS!” Better to head south of the river to the much quieter Horniman Museum (open daily 10.30am–5.30pm, free entry) which houses a fascinating collection that includes all sorts of stuffed animals (including the extinct passenger pigeon), cultural artefacts (such as creepy masks and mummies) and curios (not least the fake merman). When you eventually can’t stand the sight of another stuffed bird, check out these top things to do in England’s capital. Credit: ©GreyHobbit, CC BY-NC-SA 2.08. Barcelona – escape from Las RamblasLas Ramblas is like a tourist drainpipe down which holidaymakers are sluiced towards the sea. For every decent restaurant there are half a dozen terrible tourist traps, and as you negotiate your way through the boulevard’s packed crowds there’s a good chance you’ll lose your wallet, too – the street is notorious for pickpockets. If you’re after an area with excellent food and nightlife, not to mention fewer petty thieves, then head north to Plaça del Sol in Gràcia instead. This pleasant square is ringed with some great bars and restaurants, and attracts a lively crowd of locals and backpackers. Head to Café de Sol (Plaça del Sol, 16; open daily 12pm–3am), grab a beer and watch the crowds roll by. Check out our local’s guide for more Barcelona top tips, including where to find the fabled flea markets. Credit: ©Russell James Smith, CC BY 2.03. Florence – the city has better bodies than Michaelangelo’s DavidMichaelangelo’s statue of David is undeniably impressive. Housed in the Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze, at five metres tall it towers above the viewer – but fighting your way through to see it is frankly a pain in the posterior. If you’re after anatomically perfect sculptures, then better to head to Florence’s Museum of Zoology and Natural History, La Specola (open daily except Monday, 9.30am–4.30pm, €6 or about £4). It’s home to hundreds of weird and wonderful stuffed animals, including a hippo, but the star attractions are the anatomic waxes – perfect and beautifully creepy wax models of human beings that are hundreds of years old.

No doubt you met the thousands of other tourists doing exactly the same thing and stood in a queue with them for hours while waiting for the lift. Perhaps you also noted the fundamental problem with taking in the view from the top: it’s the only place in Paris where you can’t actually see the Eiffel Tower, hence robbing the skyline of its most famous landmark. Much better to climb the Montparnasse Tower instead, open 9.30am–11.30pm in summer, 9.30am–10.30pm in winter, entry €15 (£10). It may not be anywhere near as pretty as the Eiffel Tower, and it might be slightly shorter (210 metres compared to the Eiffel’s 324 metres) but you won’t have to queue to go up it and, most importantly, you can see the Eiffel Tower from the top, placed within a stunning panorama of the city. Check out our second timer’s guide to read more alternative takes on the city, or see what the locals get up to.last_img read more

Appeal against sentences imposed on antifracking activists including UK Cypriot

first_imgAn appeal has been lodged against the ‘excessive and extraordinary’ punishments received by three anti-fracking protesters in the UK, among them Cypriot environmental activist Richard Loizou, the Guardian has reported.On September 26, Loizou, 31, received a sentence of 15 months, while Simon Roscoe Blevins, 26, and Richard Roberts, 36, were given 16 months in prison after being convicted of causing a public nuisance by a jury at Preston crown court in August.The three environmental activists are considered to be the first people to receive jail sentences for anti-fracking action in the UK.In view of growing anger over their “excessive and extraordinary” punishments, the environmental activists announced on October 5 that they would be lodging an appeal against their sentence, according to the Guardian.The activists were charged after climbing on top of trucks carrying drilling equipment to the Preston New Road fracking site near Blackpool during a four-day action protest.This action followed a series of protests that have been taking place near Preston New Road since the government gave the energy firm Cuadrilla the go-ahead to extract shale gas at two wells on the site in October 2016, overturning a decision by Lancashire county council.More than 300 protesters have been arrested since Cuadrilla began constructing a fracking pad at the site in January 2017, the Guardian said.In the court indictment, judge Robert Altham said “each of them remains motivated by an unswerving confidence that they are right” and therefore considers them at risk of reoffending.“Even at their trial they felt justified by their actions. Given the disruption caused in this case, only immediate custody can achieve sufficient punishment,” he said.In a video message as they were waiting to be relocated to jails elsewhere in the UK, Loizou said that “we will win, because this is a last-ditch attempt to squeeze the remaining fossil fuels from the earth. It is like industry clinging on to an old paradigm of the way things operate.”Kirsty Brimelow QC, the head of the international human rights team at Doughty St Chambers, who is leading the appeal on a pro bono basis, told the Guardian that “we are applying to the court of appeal for expedition of the appeal… The core submission in this case was made at Preston crown court – that it is wrong to lock up peaceful protesters.”The activists have seen a wave of solidarity following their arrest. On October 3, more than 20 MEPs from the Greens/European Free Alliance group stood together at the European parliament expressing their solidarity with the group. Also, more than 1,000 academics have signed a letter calling for a parliamentary inquiry.Hundreds of supporters of the three environmental activists demonstrated on October 6 outside the prison where they are being held after the appeal against their imprisonment was lodged.While fracking is effectively banned in countries including Germany, France, Scotland and Ireland, the UK government announced plans earlier this summer to make it easier for companies to obtain permission to carry out exploratory drilling in England, the Guardian reported.  You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
