The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation Successfully Completes 43rd Annual Gracies

first_imgThis week, the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWMF) presented the 43rd Annual Gracie Awards at a luncheon at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City.2018 Lifetime Achievement Award Winner Judy Woodruff presented by 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award Winner Jane PauleyHost Erica Hill of CNN led the program alongside presenters Pam Oliver from FOX Sports; multimedia host, actress and author Angie Martinez; April Ryan of American Urban Radio Networks and CNN; and Larry Mullins from Entercom’s 1010 WINS. The Gracie Awards were presented to honorees which were previously announced in recognition of individual achievement and outstanding programming by, for and about women in local and student TV, radio and interactive media.Highlights from the show included:AWMF Board Chair and Katz Radio Group President Christine Travaglini opened the Luncheon. After welcoming the record-breaking crowd, she introduced AWM Board Treasurer and Gracies Co-Chair Heather Cohen, executive vice president of The Weiss Agency.Lifetime Achievement Honoree Judy Woodruff, anchor and managing editor of the PBS NewsHour, was presented her award by last year’s Honoree Jane Pauley, who said, “There should be no more exalted role in society than the role of journalists. When that ceases to be, we will no longer rightfully call ourselves a free society. Judy Woodruff deserves recognition for lifetime as much as anyone I can think of. Furthermore, she has earned it.” When accepting the award, Woodruff captivated the audience and spoke strongly with regard to women in media, “We have come a long way, but we still have work to do. We need more women in decision-making jobs, more women doing the hiring, more women deciding which stories get covered, and more women reaching out to bring along younger women like the remarkable women we are seeing here today.”Erica Hill, CNN anchor and correspondent, hosted the awards. Hill has a rich history with the Gracie Awards as the 2015 honoree for Outstanding Correspondent. When presenting the awards for outstanding work in Local Market Television, Hill said, “Local markets are more important today than ever as newsrooms shrink, and newspapers are shuttered. Local reporters hold officials accountable – they tell the stories that matter in the moment. They get to the heart of the issues. They inform, they educate, and they help.”2018 Billboard Artist-to-Watch Country Singer Jessie Chris performed and spoke about her passion as an anti-bullying advocate. Chris, the victim of extreme bullying as a student, is an anti-bullying advocate who has supported the Ad Council’s #BeMore Campaign and Disney’s #ChooseKindness campaign.Presenter Larry Mullins from Entercom’s 1010 WINS was a lively presenter who not only spoke, but also sang, “We talk about the Oprahs, we talk about the Barbara Walters, we talk about the Judy Blumes, Jane Pauley, and so many others that I’ve seen here today, and then it goes all the way to the Shonda Rhimes. Sisters your day has come. Your day is now!”The National Gracie Award honorees were recognized at the Gracies Gala, May 22, at The Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills. Again, a full list of recipients may be found on the Alliance for Women in Media website.last_img read more

New greenhouse gas emissions pact should consider humanitarian suffering – UN

The Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) said that the successor pact to the Kyoto Protocol, with nations expected to wrap up negotiations in Copenhagen, Denmark, this December, must take a practical approach to help alleviate the suffering of vulnerable populations caused by extreme weather and environmental degradation.“The scale of the potential humanitarian challenge presented by climate change in the future is huge,” said John Holmes, the head of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), one of the UN bodies involved in the IASC.“This is a defining moment to ensure that the challenge is not insurmountable and human suffering is minimised,” added Mr. Holmes, who is also the UN Emergency Relief Coordinator.More than 20 million people have been displaced by climate-related sudden-onset natural disasters in 2008 alone, according to a new study by OCHA and the Norwegian Refugee Council’s (NRC) Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre. The total number of people affected by natural disasters has risen sharply over the past 10 years, with an average of 211 million people directly affected each year, nearly five times the number impacted by conflict in the same period. Extreme and slow-onset climate events – such as floods, storms, droughts, rising sea levels and desertification – are impacting more and more people each year, with the most vulnerable including women and children, those already struggling with poverty, insecurity, hunger, poor health and environmental decline. Climate change is also expected to dramatically affect patterns of migration and population movement, with many millions to be displaced by prolonged droughts, repeated floods or storms, according to an IASC news release.The Committee noted that the Copenhagen agreement has potential to avert or reduce many of the humanitarian consequences of climate change over the next decade, but adapting to these climatic shocks will mean focusing on prevention and preparation by strengthening national and local resources to cope with future disasters.The UN talks under way in Bonn entered their second week today, with countries set to start making more detailed proposals on an initial round of comments on a proposed draft for the climate change deal.“We are getting down to the nitty gritty of the negotiations,” said Yvo de Boer, the Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). 8 June 2009A group of 18 of key United Nations and partner aid agencies attending climate change talks in Bonn today called for the humanitarian impacts of global warming to be addressed in a new greenhouse gas emissions agreement to be negotiated later this year. read more

A look at the numbers showing Quebecs recent economic performance

NEW YORK — Here’s a look at some numbers on Quebec’s recent economic performance:Economic growth, as measured by real gross domestic product in the second quarter of the year: 2.5 per cent. A research note by the National Bank says it was Quebec’s sixth straight quarter of real GDP growth that was two per cent or higher — the province’s longest such streak since 2007.Unemployment rate: 6.1 per cent in August down from seven per cent a year earlier. The national rate was 6.2 per cent in August. In July, Quebec’s jobless rate fell to a record low of 5.8 per cent.Job creation: 93,300 net new jobs created between August 2016 and August 2017, with nearly two-thirds of this increase in full-time work. Overall, the Quebec employment expanded 2.3 per cent over that period, compared with growth at the national level of 2.1 per cent.Housing market: Residential real estate sales increased in 29 out of 30 months in the Montreal region, according to a September report by the Greater Montreal Real Estate Board. The city had 2,899 residential sales in August alone — an eight per cent increase compared to August 2016. read more

Inter Pipeline execs refuse to answer questions on reported takeover offer

Companies in this article: (TSX:IPL) The Canadian Press CALGARY — Executives with Inter Pipeline Ltd. are refusing to confirm or deny a report that a potential buyer recently made a $30 per share offer for the company.The report in a Thursday morning article in the Globe and Mail, which didn’t identify the bidder and quoted unnamed sources as saying the offer was rejected, was linked to a nine per cent Inter stock price surge to $23.64 on the Toronto Stock Exchange on Thursday.Inter shares continued to rise on Friday, up four per cent to $24.60 at noon EDT, about half an hour after a conference call in which both CEO Christian Bayle and chief financial officer Brent Heagy refused to answer analyst questions about the story.The executives did provide detail about a separate announcement Thursday after markets closed that the midstream company is putting its European bulk petroleum storage business on the block — it has operations in the U.K., Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Netherlands and Ireland with about 37 million barrels of storage capacity.Bayle says the sale has been contemplated for some time and formed part of the rationale for buying NuStar Energy’s European storage business for $354 million last fall because its fit with its existing European storage assets made a better package.Inter reported record second-quarter net income of $260 million, nearly double the $136 million it declared in the same period of 2018, with the increase mainly resulting from a one-time $144-million provision resulting from the staged reduction in the Alberta corporate income tax rate from 12 to eight per cent by 2022.Inter also reported a slight rise in revenue to $642 million from $631 million and a decrease in its core pipeline volumes to 1.34 million barrels per day from 1.38 million bpd a year earlier. read more

East Timor hosts talks on security with Australian Indonesian police

Representatives of the East Timor Police Service (ETPS) said the meetings were constructive and resulted in an agreement by which Australia and Indonesia would place full-time police liaisons in Dili in order to further trilateral cooperation.Today’s meeting, which included ETPS Police Commissioner Paulo Martins and UN Police officials, focused on efforts to increase cooperation among the three police forces, especially in the fight against cross-border crimes such as drug smuggling, money laundering and people smuggling.The talks stemmed from a high-level meeting held in February in Denpasar, Indonesia, attended by UNTAET chief Sergio Vieira de Mello and representatives from Australia and Indonesia. read more

Conditions deteriorating alarmingly in Yemen warns senior UN official

“But it is not too late,” he added: “In my meetings with officials of the internationally recognized Government of Yemen in Aden and the de facto authorities in Sana’a, I was encouraged to hear strong support for relief operations.”Around 2.3 million people are currently displaced across Yemen, and, since June alone, more than 500,000 people have fled conflict in and around the strategically important port city of Hudaydah, the major port of entry for most of the county’s food and humanitarian aid.Mr. Lowcock, describing some of the scenes that faced him during his visit, said: “I met families outside Sana’a who fled their homes four years ago when conflict escalated and are still living in terrible conditions. In Lahj, I visited an overcrowded camp that hosts hundreds of desperate families displaced by recent fighting in Hudaydah.”The consequences of the Yemen conflict, especially the recent economic crash in the country, have driven major increases in severe hunger and malnutrition, leading to a humanitarian crisis that senior UN officials have called “the largest food security crisis in the world.”Mr. Lowcock said that he had witnessed the suffering of Yemeni civilians hit by the failed Yemeni economy, who can’t afford food, clean water or transport to a clinic: “In Aden, I met emaciated children so malnourished they could barely open their eyes. Humanitarian assistance helps many of these children recover. But I also heard heartbreaking stories of children relapsing again and again because their families simply can’t afford food or proper medical care.”  The Under-Secretary- General reiterated that only a political solution can end the crisis in Yemen, and welcomed news that the warring parties plan to travel to Sweden for peace talks convened by Martin Griffiths, the UN Special Envoy for Yemen, but he warned that, because of the deteriorating humanitarian situation, a large step-up in funding will be needed for the Yemen aid effort in 2019. read more

Impressive pixelbypixel Lego map of Hyrule

first_imgAppearing at BrickCon 2012, Michael Kuroda showed off a Lego recreation of the map of Hyrule from The Legend of Zelda. The map measures in at 256×88 studs, and each stud represents a 16×16 pixel area of the orignal map.If you remember how the original Zelda played, you’ll remember that the player navigated the world by moving from one static chunk of the map to the next, rather than a camera following Link as has been the method for quite some time. Each static chunk of the map measures in at 16×11. Of course, the map featured above is just the overworld map, and doesn’t feature the individual dungeon layouts, or the interior of any of the grottos. That said, the overworld contains 128 different screens, all of which are represented in the Kuroda’s Lego build. For comparison, Bethesda’s massive overworld in Skyrim is around 14.3 square miles, as opposed to 128 rectangular screens.Fans of the game will remember the second quest, which unlocked after Ganon was defeated and the was over. The location of special items and dungeon entrances changed, but those aren’t demarcated on Kuroda’s map, so if you don’t remember a location being where it is displayed on Kuroda’s map, don’t blame the second quest!Kuroda, known by internet Lego enthusiasts as “madoruk”, has some other extremely impressive Lego builds, from a recreation of the arcade and NES classic Rampage, to adorable Lego versions of The Tick and Arthur. Check out the rest of his builds over on his Flickr stream.via The Brothers Bricklast_img read more

Canal du Midi lancement dun plan de reboisement

first_imgCanal du Midi : lancement d’un plan de reboisementLa ministre de l’Ecologie Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet a lancé jeudi dernier un plan de reboisement des bords du Canal du Midi, dans l’Aude. Alors que les platanes centenaires du canal sont décimés par un champignon, plus de 40.000 arbres doivent être plantés dans le cadre de cette campagne.Jeudi dernier, à Trèbes dans l’Aude, la ministre de l’Ecologie a donné le coup d’envoi d’une campagne de reboisement des bords du Canal du Midi, rapporte le site de France 3. Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet a planté le premier des 42.000 arbres censés résister au chancre coloré. Ce champignon venu des Etats-Unis lors de la seconde guerre mondiale, s’est attaqué aux platanes centenaires du canal et les a décimés. À lire aussiCes 18 arbres sont les plus extraordinaires de la planèteDepuis 2006, environ 1.000 arbres malades ont dû être abattus. Alors que la progression du champignon s’accélère, Voies navigables de France a décidé d’augmenter le rythme d’abattage. A partir de 2013, ce sont quelque 4.000 arbres qui devraient ainsi disparaître chaque année entre Toulouse et Agde, dans l’Hérault. A Trèbes, près de 200 arbres seront ainsi plantés dans les jours à venir, pour remplacer les platanes abattus l’hiver dernier. Une seconde replantation est prévue à quelque kilomètres de là, à Villedubert, au mois de décembre.Le coût de la campagne de reboisement lancée par le ministère de l’Environnement est estimé à quelque 200 millions d’euros sur dix ans. NKM a alors fait appel au mécénat pour financer une partie du projet. “L’abattage et la replantation représenteront environ 200 millions d’euros sur 10 ans, l’Etat s’engage pour 70 millions, les collectivités pour un tiers aussi, et je pense qu’il faut aussi solliciter les entreprises pour qu’elles s’engagent dans le sauvetage, et les particuliers amoureux du canal pour que chacun puisse participer à un arbre”, a déclaré la ministre.Le 28 novembre 2011 à 09:29 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

SIDA une piste de vaccin obtenue chez des souris

first_imgSIDA : une piste de vaccin obtenue chez des souris Mercredi, des chercheurs américains ont révélé avoir réussi à protéger des souris contre le virus du sida avec une seule injection et en utilisant une stratégie analogue à la thérapie génique.Alors que se tient aujourd’hui la Journée mondiale de lutte contre le SIDA, c’est une découverte encourageante que révèle une étude publiée dans la revue Nature. Celle-ci explique comment des chercheurs de l’Institut de technologie de Californie sont parvenus à immuniser de façon permanente des souris contre le virus VIH et ce, sans faire travailler le système immunitaire des rongeurs. À lire aussiSIDA : 10 symptômes qui doivent alerterEn effet, un vaccin comprend généralement un antigène, une bactérie tuée ou un élément reconnaissable d’un virus. Une fois celui-ci injecté dans le corps, le système immunitaire le détecte et apprend ensuite à fabriquer des anticorps pour le combattre. Mais cette approche classique n’a jusqu’ici pas permis de concevoir un vaccin efficace contre le virus du SIDA. Cette fois-ci, les chercheurs ont donc opté pour une autre approche, analogue à la thérapie génique. Pour cela, ils ont utilisé un vecteur, en l’occurrence un virus inoffensif dont ils se sont servis pour transporter des gènes bien particuliers : des gènes chargés de programmer la fabrication, directement dans le muscle, d’anticorps neutralisants anti-VIH. Cette stratégie surnommée VIP (pour vectored immunoprophylaxis) a alors permis d’induire une production permanente d’anticorps protecteurs chez les rongeurs génétiquement modifiés et ce, avec une seule injection dans le muscle de la patte des animaux. “Cette immunoprophylaxie VIP a un effet similaire à celui d’un vaccin mais sans faire travailler le système immunitaire”, explique Alejandro Balazs, auteur principal de l’étude dans un communiqué de presse de Caltech relayé par l’AFP.Au vu du niveau de protection obtenu, l’équipe de biologistes dirigée par le prix Nobel David Baltimore, espère désormais pouvoir transposer cette approche chez l’humain. Elle projette ainsi de tester la méthode dans des essais cliniques limités, d’abord pour vérifier s’il est possible d’obtenir une production suffisante d’anticorps au niveau du muscle humain. “Comme nous savons déjà que les anticorps (utilisés dans l’expérience) marchent, mon avis est que si nous pouvons induire la production de suffisamment d’anticorps chez des gens, les chances que la méthode VIP réussisse sont réellement assez élevées”, confie Alejandro Balazs.Le 1 décembre 2011 à 12:57 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Okay Bulmas Vacation Digs in Dragon Ball Super Broly Are Pretty Sweet

first_imgWhat’s Bulma up to in the new Dragon Ball movie Dragon Ball Super: Broly? You mean besides stealing my man, Vegeta? Well, it looks like she’s getting a brand new vacation home to flaunt in all of our faces like she’s rich or something. Just kidding, we already knew she was rich. But now she’s got an even bigger estate in the movie that we’ll see a glimpse of, thanks to a tweet showing off some artwork from the official Dragon Ball Super site and some artwork revealed for the movie. Here’s Bulma’s vacation home, a location based off the real-world Italian town of Amalfi: pic.twitter.com/Kv25hcriVp— Todd Blankenship (@Herms98) September 9, 2018Doesn’t that look ridiculous? That’s some wealth you’ve got there, girl. At least we know Vegeta and the rest of the family are being taken care of. It is, as the tweet says, based on the Italian town of Amalfi, but you can bet the real world has nothing on these extremely bright and alluring colors.Bulma already has so many different cruise ships, homes, and other lavish showings as well as cool stuff for her and her son, it’s ridiculous. She’s got some sort of sportswear that doesn’t really look like something the Bulma we know and love would wear, but maybe it just takes time to get used to something different. ProbablyIf you haven’t been keeping up with the latest Dragon Ball Super: Broly news, you’ll definitely want to mark your calendars for the new film’s debut. As you probably already guessed, it follows the Legendary Super Saiyan Broly, who meets up with Goku and Vegeta, who are understandably perplexed: They thought they were the last pure Saiyans on Earth, so what’s this new Saiyan doing here?Make sure you don’t miss the new flick as it brings more of the weirdness and slick new animation of Dragon Ball Super to light for all you longtime fans.

Listen How Far Funny Or Die Has Come From Its ViralVideo Days

first_imgIt was hysterical short videos like “The Landlord” that made the Funny Or Die brand an overnight household name when it began 11 years ago. But its business has since evolved tremendously, explains CEO Mike Farah, as evidenced by the 20 TV series the company currently has in various stages of production or development, including Hulu’s “I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman” and Netflix’s “American Vandal.”On the latest episode of the Variety podcast “Strictly Business,” Farah details how the focus on long-form TV production is balanced out by a digital strategy that has broadened out to everything from custom campaigns with brand partners to digital-marketing services for both the company’s own shows and those from other producers.“There’s a ton of content out there, you need to be able to peg it to something,” said Farah, a 10-year company veteran who rose to the CEO post in 2016. “And because we have this audience, and this relationship and credibility with them, a show like ‘American Vandal’ has really benefited from that.” ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

With Infinitt Smart-NET, images can be viewed by multiple people – radiologists, physicians and specialists—simultaneously, and from remote locations, enhancing communication and collaboration. Images can even be viewed on mobile devices from the sidelines.The Infinitt solution will store image data in ultra-secure, HIPAA-compliant data centers; the Infinitt Smart-NET PACS network will span more than 100 sites across all 32 club entities, including training camps, the NFL Scouting Combine, designated team facilities and several of the top healthcare institutions across the country; centralizing players’ electronic records will benefit players and their healthcare providers while reducing the costs of physical storage where records are stored currently; tight integration with the NFL-selected Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system will maintain up-to-date image data and players’ medical information across all clubs; sophisticated rules-based automation will promote secure and simplified access to players’ images when transitioning from one club to another; and coordination with the Scouting Combine system will enable uploading of a player’s pre-NFL images to the PACS database for easy, instant access upon drafting a player.“This is a significant project for the NFL, demonstrating their steadfast concern for the players’ health and well-being. As avid fans of the NFL, we at Infinitt are excited about using our technology to provide more timely and comprehensive access to players’ images and medical records,” said David Smarro, CEO of INFINITT North America.“Currently, most healthcare providers copy the players’ images to CD /DVD, but these aren’t always on hand when and where you need them. With the Infinitt system, digitized images can be transmitted electronically over the internet, and viewed in multiple locations simultaneously. This is particularly valuable when two or more physicians need to consult on the player’s condition or diagnosis.” Technology | Cybersecurity | August 07, 2019 ScImage Introduces PICOM ModalityGuard for Cybersecurity ScImage Inc. is bridging the gap between security and functionality with the introduction of the PICOM ModalityGuard…. read more last_img read more

Travel Monitor sat down and had a chat with Susie about her new role, what it involved and where she thinks the industry is going in the next 12 months.What does your job involve?Growing sales within my territory by providing training to agents however, it’s really all about talking to people and transferring your passion about the product.What do you enjoy most about your profession?I love the fact that I’m constantly on the move. Coming straight off being a guide for the last 3 years living a nomadic lifestyle, this role is perfect for me as I get to meet so many beautiful people who are also curious to explore the world.What are the biggest challenges for you in your profession?As I’m only 2 months into the role, the biggest challenge for me so far is the learning curve required to get up to speed. The travel industry is changing so quickly so we have to be flexible and adapt.What do you think are the biggest challenges the industry faces?The travel industry really needs to keep up with the quickly changing demands of the everyday traveller. Everything is moving at warp speed and that includes how quickly a destination becomes popular and then slips into obscurity. We are responsible for providing for the demand but also ensuring that tourism in these areas remains sustainable so that destinations retain the reason we fell in love with them in the first place.What do you think will be the biggest game changer in the travel industry in the next 12 months’?Environmental travel- people are already looking to reduce plastic waste in their homes and everyday lives and are looking to make sure they’re supporting companies that do the same. Whether it’s having programs that plant trees, clean up waste or in general don’t support cruel animal tourism. It’s a step in the right direction for a more aware traveller to enrich the locals they visit, to do no harm and to also look for sustainable ways to support the countries, cities and villages we explore.Who inspires you most and why?I wouldn’t be able to narrow it down to a singular person but anyone that is unapologetically strong and confident in their own self and skills is inspiring to me.Who would you invite on your next holiday if you could choose anyone and where would you go?My nerdy side is going to come out here but I would probably choose Nikola Tesla and just pick his brain about how he saw his inventions shaping the future. I’ve been wanting to go to on our Busabout Ultimate Vietnam trip so I’d definitely spend a day at the beach purely for the laughs of seeing Tesla in an 1890’s bathing suit.Contact Email: Susie.byrd@busabout.comlast_img read more

Six in Tepak case remanded for another five days

first_imgSix of the original 14 suspects remanded in the the case of the alleged fraud of EU-funded programmes at the technical university (Tepak) and the Oceanography Centre of the University of Cyprus (UCy) were re-remanded by the Limassol court on Sunday for another five days.The six suspects, included a 57-year-old former CEO of the Research and International Cooperation Service of Tepak, her 38 year old son, a 41-year-old Tepak professor, two senior administrative officers from the University of Cyprus and a 41-year-old company manager.Prosecutor Charalambos Charalambous asked the court to renew the detention of the suspects for another five days. Their lawyers did not object but two have asked for speedy investigations due to health concerns they have for their clients.Eight of the original 14 suspects have now been released, three in the past 24 hours, leaving only the six re-remands.Two female relatives of one of the prime suspects were released on Thursday, while police did not request the extension of the remand of three other suspects who were under custody for six days, which expired on Friday. Some of the freed suspects may be used as prosecution witnesses.The case concerns 23 EU co-funded programmes worth €5m between 2008 and 2015. The 57-year-old prime suspect who managed the research programmes in question, is believed to have abused her position to force professors to hire her relatives for research programmes and threaten them if they posed any objections. One witness claimed she had said she knew people in the underworld and “it would only take a phone call to place a bomb somewhere.”You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoGundry MDHow To Make Your Dark Spots Fade (Effortless 2 Minute Routine)Gundry MDUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoOur View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
