Through ground-breaking original research, innovative program development, student leadership and educator training, community organizing, and targeted state and federal advocacy, GLSEN has seen the impact of its work through the development of educational resources, direct engagement of youth and educators, and national programs like GLSEN’s Day of Silence, GLSEN’s No Name-Calling Week, GLSEN’s Ally Week.
Indore: For the pre-dawn searches conducted against people linked to MP CM Kamal Nath on Sunday, the Income Tax department had roped in the armed personnel of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) to keep a vigil. Generally, the I-T department takes the help of the local police during such operations. According to eyewitnesses, during the I-T searches conducted at the residence of Praveen Kakkad, former Officer on Special Duty (OSD) to Nath, in the Vijay Nagar area of the city, armed CRPF personnel were seen posted outside the house. Sources said a team of the local police was seen deployed about 200 metres from Kakkad’s house during the raid. Officials said the entire operation was carried out by the Delhi unit of the I-T department in a very secretive manner. Besides Kakkad’s house, at least five other premises were also raided, including Kakkad’s office and premises of his close aides, they added. During the operation conducted ahead of the LS polls, a huge amount of cash and several documents related to dubious investments were reportedly recovered. However, local I-T officials said they were unable to disclose the details yet. They said since the operation was carried out by the Delhi unit of the I-T department, only it could provide the official information about the recovery and seizure. Kakkad’s family is associated with a number of businesses, including hospitality. A former MP police officer, Kakkad was appointed the OSD to Nath after the Congress-led government came to power in the state last year.
UNITED NATIONS – UN’s special envoy to Mali Koenders urged the Security Council to enable rapid deployment to ensure protection of civilians in the country.The “recent and worrying” security incidents in Mali are an important ‘wake-up call, said Special Representative and Head of the UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA), Bert Koenders on Wednesday.Koenders told the UN Security Council that it was necessary to facilitate rapid deployment and access to remote areas to ensure the protection of civilians.Important steps have been taken recently to help restore constitutional order and stability in Mali, including successful presidential elections, Koenders said.However, serious threats to peace and security remain, including a suicide bomb attack, which hit the northern city of Timbuktu on 28 September and attacks in Gao on October 7.He noted that he remained concerned about the fragile security situation, notably in the north of the country.“The new authorities are confronted with numerous challenges that need to be addressed urgently to enable Malian men, women and children to live in security and to benefit from peace dividends,” he said.“I call on the members of this council, and troop and police of contributing countries, to do their utmost to enable the rapid deployment of additional enablers and battalions to Mali in order for MINUSMA to effectively and timely discharge its mandate,” Koenders added.The UN stabilization mission in Mali began on July 1.

See All in Women in Communications » The panel comprises Erin Leary, end user services agile transformation leader at Boeing; Jeanne Spinosa, manager of telecommunications at Brown University; and Gauri Bhalerao, senior manager of collaboration, networking strategy, and engineering at Yum! Brands. The gender gap in the technology industry is hardly a secret. Any one walking the halls of a tech conference will have to try not to notice the disproportionate ratio of men to women. And the abundance of organizations and non-profits focused on closing that gender gap highlight the need to do something about this disparity rather than waiting for time to close the gap on its own. WICLuncheon_speakers_names_665.png My hope is that by hearing how these women have overcome workplace challenges, attendees will walk away inspired to promote change in their own corners of the world. Words of Wisdom from 3 Women in Communications Michelle Burbick May 06, 2019 Women enterprise IT professionals open up about their experiences working in a male-dominated field and offer valuable advice. The Women in Communications Luncheon at Enterprise Connect has limited seating and requires an RSVP. You can register here to attend and contribute to the discussion around how we can support women’s advancement in communications. (And if you’d like to share your experiences as a woman in IT with No Jitter, let us know!) One of the upcoming event functions that I’m most looking forward to is our Women in Communications Luncheon, taking place at noon on Monday, March 18. Not only will women have an excellent opportunity to network, but the luncheon will feature a panel of women IT professionals who are set to share their experiences in navigating careers in a male-dominated industry. womenintech_774.png Shining a Light on Women in Communications Michelle Burbick March 11, 2019 Three Enterprise Connect keynoters speak out on their experiences being women executives in a male-dominated field. And when you ask girls what a computer scientist looks like, they say they picture “a dude with a hoodie sitting in a basement somewhere,” Saujani said. “You can’t be what you can’t see.” This comment really struck a chord with me, and encompasses one of the big reasons I’m excited that we’re putting a spotlight on women at the upcoming Enterprise Connect Orlando conference and exhibition. If you can’t be what you can’t see, then let’s get some women IT professionals front and center!

Reshma Saujani, the founder of Girls Who Code, believes that businesses need to be part of the solution and can do more to promote diversity, as she shared in a recent Harvard Business Review IdeaCast interview. To back up her assertion, she cited national statistics showing that even while women earn about half of all science and engineering degrees, they account for less than one-third of people employed in those fields. Corporate hiring practices are only part of the problem. Culture, upbringing, and stereotypes are at play, too, Saujani said. “[W]e started creating the caricature of what it looked like to be a computer scientist and girls didn’t see themselves in it,” she said. She pointed to the character she calls the “brogrammer,” a stereotype popularized in films like Weird Science and Revenge of the Nerds from the ‘80s. Log in or register to post comments
The federal government is adding several stocks of fish to its list of overfished species, including a pair of salmon that is popular with seafood fans.The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released its annual Report to Congress on the Status of U.S. Fisheries on Friday. The report says two populations of Chinook salmon and three populations of coho salmon will be added to the list.When a stock is listed as “overfished,” officials will suggest measures to rebuild its population. That could involve fishing restrictions.NOAA says several stocks added to the list were affected by factors that fisheries managers can’t control. The three coho stocks are in Washington state, where warmer water, drought and degraded habitat made spawning difficult.The agency says the vast majority of U.S. fish stocks remain at sustainable levels.The Associated Press
Around 14.4 million people – over half of Yemen’s population – urgently need food security and livelihood assistance, FAO reported earlier this week. The volume of food required in Yemen is far greater than humanitarian actors can provide. Agriculture must be an integral part of the humanitarian response to prevent Yemen’s dire food security situation from worsening.Increasing households’ resilience to food security threats will contribute to saving many lives. Emergency agricultural interventions are critical to preserving household. Food production and income generation are especially vital in hard-to-reach areas where aid access is limited.The factors negatively affecting the food security include a reported desert locust outbreak, which threatens the livelihoods of more than 100,000 farmers, beekeepers and herders in five governorates, and the April flooding, which put 49,000 people in need of urgent assistance, the FAO said.
A wide view of the General Assembly. UN Photo/Rick Bajornas (file) In a resolution adopted by a vote of 122 in favour, 13 against and 36 abstentions, the Assembly also expressed grave concern at the continued deterioration of the devastating humanitarian situation in the country and demanded “rapid, safe, sustained, unhindered and unconditional humanitarian access throughout the country for UN […] and all humanitarian actors.”Action in the Assembly comes just days after the UN Security Council failed to adopt a similar resolution demanding a ceasefire in Aleppo, as two of its permanent members, China and Russia, casts their vetoes.Earlier today, the UN human rights wing warned that there may currently be around 100,000 civilians in areas under the control of armed opposition groups in eastern Aleppo, with another 30,000 believed to have fled heavy bombardment to areas under Government control.The Assembly’s measure stressed the need that all parties to the conflict fully and immediately implement all provisions of various Security Council resolutions concerning the situation in the country, and underscored that all parties must “take all appropriate steps to protect civilians and persons hors de combat, including members of ethnic, religious and confessional communities.”To that end, it noted “the primary responsibility to protect [Syria’s] population lies with the Syrian authorities.” In the resolution, led by Canada, the General Assembly expressed outrage at extensive and persistent violations of international humanitarian and international human rights laws, especially through shelling and aerial bombardment, use of chemical and other prohibited weapons, and use of siege and starvation of civilians as a method of warfare, that have caused profound suffering and loss of life and created conditions “conducive to the rise and spread of terrorism.”It also expressed deep concerns at presence of terrorist organizations in the country and condemned attacks and violations of human rights and humanitarian law perpetrated by them.“Terrorism in all its forms constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security and that any acts of terrorism are unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed,” it reaffirmed.Further, highlighting that the only sustainable solution to the current crisis in the country is through an inclusive and Syrian-led political process that meets the legitimate aspirations of the Syrian people, the General Assembly reaffirmed its support for a credible, inclusive and non-sectarian Syrian-led political process, involving women and civil society.The Assembly also emphasized the need to “ensure accountability for crimes involving violations of international law […] some of which may constitute war crimes or crimes against humanity, committed in Syria since March 2011, through appropriate, fair and independent investigations and prosecutions at the domestic or international level.”It further urged the Security Council to “exercise its responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security by taking additional measures to address the crisis in the Syria, in particular the devastating humanitarian crisis, and stresses in this regard Article 11 of the UN Charter.”Since the crisis erupted in 2011, the humanitarian situation in the country has taken a downward spiral with more than 13.5 million Syrians now in need to humanitarian assistance and nearly 6.3 million people internally displaced.More than four million Syrians have been driven out of the country as refugees, including hundreds of thousands in Europe.The conflict has also killed hundreds of thousands of people, including many children. Almost a million people (974,080) remain trapped in besieged areas and nearly 3.9 million people in hard-to-reach areas.
Spirit of Brock Board of Trustees medal recipients Shalini Dass (left) and Kristina Elizabeth Wamboldt (right) with Board of Trustees Chair Joe Robertson at Wednesday afternoon’s convocation ceremony. She appreciates the recognition, but Kristina Elizabeth Wamboldt didn’t spend many quiet nights inside studying and countless hours volunteering to win awards.Instead, the 23-year-old has devoted most of her time at Brock University preparing for a career in teaching. She completed the concurrent education program with bachelor of science and bachelor of education degrees and a 94 per cent overall average.During Wednesday afternoon’s Faculty of Education convocation ceremony, Wamboldt was presented with a Board of Trustees Spirit of Brock medal and Dean’s medals for her accomplishments.“It’s been a lot of hard work over the last five years, the first four years in particular doing my math and science degree,” Wamboldt said. “It’s almost like vindication. It paid off in the end, the long nights of studying and not doing much else but school.”Brock education Prof. Kari-Lynn Winters was presented with the 2014 Faculty of Education Award for Excellence in Teaching and addressed the students.In addition to her in-class success, Wamboldt has been an active volunteer at Brock. She is part of several groups that have raised thousands of dollars for charity, including the Brock Leaders Citizenship Society’s Flora Broley Memorial Ball Hockey Tournament that has brought in more than $60,000 for Alzheimer’s. She is currently working as a BLCS assistant.“It’s kind of my both sides of the brain,” Wamboldt said of her passion for academics and volunteerism.Wamboldt wants to supply teach in Niagara next year and would do so while completing her master of education at Brock.Andrew Edward (undergraduate) was awarded a Spirit of Brock medal. “I always say it’s like my family,” she said. “I walk down the hall and professors know me by name … they take the time to stop and talk to you. They’re really interested in what you’re doing.“Brock was big enough to suit my needs but small enough to let me thrive. I didn’t get lost in the sea of people. I was able to rise to the top and do everything I wanted to do.”Brittany Rea (undergraduate) was awarded a Spirit of Brock medal. More than 1,000 students from the Faculty of Education received their degrees and certificates on Day 2 of Convocation.Shalini Dass (graduate) joined Wamboldt as a Spirit of Brock medal recipient during the afternoon ceremony.In the morning ceremony, Brittany Rea (undergraduate) and Andrew Edward (undergraduate) were awarded Spirit of Brock medals. Kyle Sutter was given a Dean’s medal.Brock education Prof. Kari-Lynn Winters was presented with the 2014 Faculty of Education Award for Excellence in Teaching and addressed the students.“I believe teaching is bigger than the jobs we land and the material items we buy,” she said. “It’s time to make a difference. It’s time to be the connected, creative coaches for our students. To be the committed, curious, and yes, even the chaotic educators I know you all can be. I’ve been blessed, because I’ve had these teachers in my life, and I’m grateful to them, because without them I wouldn’t be here today.”
During 2009 ICMM’s Council of CEOs, which consists of 19 Chief Executive Officers of many of the world’s largest mining and metals companies, undertook a review of the climate change issue. The result is a policy on climate change, approved by the ICMM Council in October 2009. The ICMM recognises that comprehensive and sustained global action is required to reduce the scale of human-induced climate change and to adapt to its impact.The policy can be downloaded at http://www.icmm.com/content/emailtracker/linktracker.jsp?emailId=54860&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.icmm.com%2Fdocument%2F759. To complement the new policy, the forthcoming issue of ICMM’s Good Practice newsletter will be devoted to climate change. It includes an overview of how ICMM members are responding to the climate change challenge.

Super Mario Sunshine seems to be the focus of game hacker’s attentions at the moment. Only last week we saw the latest update to Super Mario Sunshine, the unofficial portable edition running on DS thanks to a hack of Super Mario 64 DS. Now we can watch the game being played at 60fps albeit with the aid of an emulator.When Super Mario Sunshine was originally released for the GameCube back in 2002 it had a frame rate locked at 30fps. However, the Dolphin emulator and modern hardware allows the game to be played on PC, and Knuckles500 on the Dolphin emulation forum has managed to hack 60fps.The method involves a patch that forces a frame multiplier value to generate more frames of animation. Then by switching the Dolphin emulator frame rate limit to 120 it forces the game to run at 60fps. The side effect of this is the audio plays way too fast, but it’s worth it to be able to watch how silky smooth the game runs in the video below (at 1080p60):YouTube isn’t the best place to show this patch off, so Knuckles500 has also included a downloadable .MP4 version of the video (but be warned it’s a pop-up heavy MediaFire link).It’s also possible to get the game running at 120fps, but it breaks the game at points. 60 seems to be the sweet spot. It’s also likely this same technique can be used on other GameCube titles due to it relying on what looks to be a commonly used function called SMSGetVSyncPerSec(). As you can see below, it works with Pikmin 2.I guess as PC hardware continues to increase in performance and emulators become more capable, original console hardware will cease to be the best place to see classic games in action. At least graphically.
The year 2017 will always be remembered as the year which witnessed the implementation of the most important reform since Independence—the ‘Goods and Services Tax’ (GST). One of the biggest tax reforms in India, which took more than a decade of intense debate to come to fruition. It is an indirect tax applicable throughout India which replaced multiple cascading taxes levied by the central and state governments. GST is not just a tax change but is beneficial for the economy as a whole and has a far-reaching impact on business. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfTo make it simpler for the common man to comprehend the meaning of GST, Sumit Dutt Majumder, former Chairman, Central Board of Excise and Customs, wrote the book ‘GST: Explained For Common Man’ which was published by Niyogi Books Private Limited. The book was launched on October 26 by the former President of India, Pranab Mukherjee at Indian International Centre. People like the Joint Secretary, GST council, Shashank Priya, Former IIT Professor, Satish Agnihotri and Jayanta Ray Chaudhuri, the Bureau Chief, Telegraph were also present at the event. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveSpeaking on the event, Pranab Mukherjee said, “It took 11 years to bring this legislation in place. P Chidambaram mentioned it first in 2006 in his budget speech, ‘the VAT came later, subsequent finance minister including myself brought in more changes”. “I addressed a midnight session of Parliament to bring GST into form and how the states had a strong fear of losing the revenues. GST is one of the most remarkable tax reforms, a remarkable institutional arrangement where taxation would be levied concurrently by the state as well as the union.’ One major point which he mentioned is ‘GST council has been continuously meeting and taking corrective measures for all GST taxpayers and the GST professionals,” he added. He further thanked the publications, as well as the author for coming forward to meet the demand of the common man for discussing the evolution of GST and all aspects of the tax that could interest the common man. Following the speech was a panel discussion by some renowned personalities as panelists like Bibek Debroy, Mahendra Singh, Indivjal Dhasmana, and the author himself, who shared their much-valued insights regarding GST. “This book has explained the critical issues and concepts of GST in a simple language, often in a storytelling style. It also covers the concepts of supply, input tax credit, IGST for inter-state trade, the business processes like registration, returns-filing among others, and subjects like composition levy, reverse, charge mechanism, and many more,” revealed Sumit Dutt Majumder. Besides manufacturing, services, and trading, this book has also explained the GST application Issues in sectors like education, healthcare, cooperative housing, to name a few. The narration has been backed by FAQs to facilitate easy understanding. This book will also help the beginners among the consultants, GST officers, and students. This book is a product of the author’s rich experience and knowledge of GST.
Register Now » January 30, 2016 6 min read Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global As technology-savvy, data-driven marketers, our job is to get out the right message, in front of the right audience, at the right time, to drive the right (desired ) onsumer behavior.Related: Without Good Analysis, Big Data Is Just a Big Trash DumpAnd we have to do that more efficiently and more effectively than we’ve seen traditional approaches doOur job, then, isn’t easy — and it’s not for the faint of heart. Indeed, data-driven marketing requires a new mindset, an organizational commitment and new tools and techniques. Hence, the need for data. Big data.Big data, a broad term for the accumulation, storage and manipulation of data sets so large and complex that traditional methods are inadequate, has accelerated its maturation. As the amount of this data has exploded, sophisticated companies have developed new ways to capture, synthesize and act on it. In just a few short years, big data has come to dominate the lexicon in marketing — and the business landscape overall. Along with the cloud, big data’s new tools and technologies have forever changed digital marketing.Those tools are helping us to move beyond big data, in fact, to aggregate and process data at a faster pace, in real time, across a broader set of touchpoints. In 2016, “fast” will be the new “big,” driven by the pervasiveness of personal devices generating information about behaviors that, to date, have been invisible. Imagine correlating heart-rate data with TV-watching data. Devices exist that capture those data sets over time. But what to do with them? The challenge, as always, is to figure out how: 1) to efficiently and effectively tap into this newfound richness; 2) harness the power in these new data sets; 3) take action on them in a way that moves the sales needle.Already, many prognosticators have peered into their crystal balls to divine where the market is headed. And, many of them will be wrong. Where do I see this going myself? Where is my company placing our bets? While the following predictions may be off by several degrees, I believe that, directionally, this is the evolution for big data in 2016 and beyond: 1. Converged platforms will disrupt current data architectures.When it comes to solving data-related problems, the tech landscape is still separated into transactional and analytic roles. Technologies and techniques for “converging,” or unifying, these types of environments are becoming much more commonplace. We are inching closer to the realization of the efficient, unified database, where raw transactional data, combined with predictive insights, is readily available in a user-friendly manner.In the big data space, Hadoop had been the golden standard, but today, companies need faster, newer and more robust ways to extract ROI from massive and constantly growing data pools. Efforts like MarkLogic and the Apache Spark project are driving this new movement.2. Stream (real-time) analytics will become a focus.Once we have the converged platform, data access will be easier. But what about timeliness? A platform that unifies all available data but is not current (due to processing lags) is necessary but not sufficient. This is where stream analytics come in.Stream-analytics technology provides the building blocks for the ingestion and processing of data that streams from devices, applications and systems in real time. It represents a core upgrade in combining traditional analytic techniques with a high-performance technical architecture, and will allow marketers to correlate behaviors across the broader ecosystem of devices.Related: Why Business That Use ‘Big Data’ Make More Money (Infographic)3. User-friendly machine-learning implementations will become readily available.Machine learning has been applied to marketing analytics problems with the goal of finding predictive patterns in data. The challenge with operationalizing machine learning, however, isn’t with the results, but with the process. Access to both the algorithms and results remains out of reach for most marketing professionals.This year, we will see momentum building around user-friendly machine-learning and data-exploration platforms. From IBM Watson Analytics, to Microsoft Azure’s Machine Learning, to Google’s Tensorflow, the industry is heeding the call to expose the power of machine learning to marketing departments. My company, Zeta’s, own patent-pending ScaaS (scoring as a service) engine is an example of a solution that builds on these systems, to create a stronger product for data-driven marketers. But the introduction of these products does not mean that data scientists will become less important.Rather, the transition of marketing professionals, from mad men to mad scientists, will only accelerate as these new tools allow marketing teams to focus on even more complex problems.4. Metadata and master data-management processes will re-emerge.This year, 2016, is poised to pick up the data “pace” and provide access to broader user populations. But with that acceleration comes risk. That risk lies in the more personal information we will have access to. And to mitigate that risk will require process and structure.We don’t see things getting so burdened with process as to squelch them. But we do see a return to organizational aspects of data management, with the inclusion of metadata and master data (“data about your data”), occurring. Higher-level organizational data oversight, at the CIO and data-steward levels, will ensure that as we accelerate our data-driven marketing trains, we won’t careen off the tracks. 5. The Internet of Things (IoT) will become more ubiquitous.The most interesting item on the horizon poised to change marketing for the next decade is the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT is the network of real-world objects or “things” embedded with technology, which enables those objects to collect, manage, process, and exchange data.Think about the marketing progression, from direct-marketing databases, to offline customer databases, to online customer databases, to online customer behavioral databases. And then apply all that to the layering of mobile, social, and display actions, etc. Each technological development (phone, web browser, smartphone, smarthome, smartwatch, etc) has provided the potential for a new layering of data about customers and their behavior. The full realization of the IoT will accelerate data value incredibly quickly. Marry those improved techniques for processing with utilizing data in real-time, and you’ll have an ecosystem that can help us grow and thrive for the foreseeable future.In sum, we are on the cusp of something truly amazing: new devices, new interactions and new data, being captured at record speed, then processed in real time by the next generation of unified architectures and tools. This year will build on the momentum of 2015 to create something bigger, faster and better. And that will bring us one step closer to realizing the full potential of data-driven marketing.Related: Big Data Is No Longer Confined to the Big Business Playbook Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Related posts:Space bids farewell to David Bowie, one of its own Pop icon Prince dead at 57 Cynthia Lennon, who first married John Lennon, dies at 75 A Tribe Called Quest’s Phife Dawg dies at 45 As much curator as inventor, Bowie lifted melodic motifs from blues, funk and standards and presented them in such a way that many fans had no idea that the catchy “Starman” was a version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” or that the melancholy “Life on Mars” was “My Way” in disguise. Other musical borrowings were more obvious, such as the opening bass line of “Jean Genie,” taken from “I’m a Man,” or the “On Broadway” reference at the end of the title track of the album “Aladdin Sane.”Stardom gave Bowie his pick of talent. He hand-selected virtuoso session players to help define each musical phase: Mick Ronson’s guitar solos, Mike Garson’s dissonant piano improv, Carlos Alomar’s funky rhythms, and the techno sounds of guitarists Adrian Belew and Robert Fripp that permeated his work in the late ’70s and set the stage for the European electronica of the 1980s.Bowie’s voice was similarly labile – gliding between ragged cackle and haunting croon as he sang about decaying cities and alienated rock stars. Fellow musicians marveled at his ability to seduce a crowd with a look or a gesture.“He’s the total artist,” said Nicholas Godin of the duo Air. “The look, the voice, the talent to compose, the stage presence. The beauty. Nobody is like that anymore. Everybody is reachable; he was unreachable.” A photo taken on July 12, 2002 shows British musician David Bowie performing during a concert in Cologne, western Germany. AFP/DPA/CartensenEver-changing identitiesDavid Robert Jones was born on Jan. 8, 1947, in Brixton, a working-class south London neighborhood scarred by World War II bomb blasts.His father, a publicist for a children’s charity, was a failed music hall impresario; his mother was a former waitress and model. An older half-brother, Terry, was diagnosed with schizophrenia and institutionalized when Bowie was a young man. For many years the rock star worried about his own mental health, and the theme of insanity runs through his early songs.“I used to wonder about my eccentricities, my wanting to explore and put myself in dangerous situations, psychically,” he told Esquire magazine in 1993. “I was scared stiff that I was mad, that the reason I was getting away with it was that I was an artist, so people never knew I was totally bonkers.”His family moved to the middle-class suburb of Bromley, where young David attended Bromley Technical High School and found a mentor in art teacher Owen Frampton, father of the future pop star Peter. At 14, in a fight with a friend over a girl, David was punched in the eye, resulting in a permanently dilated left pupil that would add to the otherworldly appearance he would later cultivate.After a few lessons on a plastic saxophone purchased on a payment plan, he began playing in local bands, finding that he liked singing and the female adulation that came with it. To avoid confusion with Davy Jones of the Monkees, he renamed himself after the 19th-century American frontiersman and the hunting knife associated with him.Fascinated by musical theater, Bowie joined a mime troupe led by the dancer (and, briefly, his lover) Lindsay Kemp, who taught him the extravagant, stylized movements he would later bring into his own stage performances.Although his first two albums received little notice, in 1969 Bowie had his first hit single with “Space Oddity,” a song about a disaffected astronaut who decides to remain “sitting in my tin can, far above the world,” rather than return to life on Earth. Released five days before the Apollo 11 launch, it reached No. 5 in Britain.That year he also met Angela Barnett, with whom he would enter into a 10-year marriage and have a son, Duncan Zowie Haywood Jones, born in 1971. A shrewd manager of her husband’s early career, Barnett tolerated his blatant philandering and gave him the spiky-on-top, long-in-the-back haircut that would become his signature look through the early 1970s.The hairdo – and the accompanying glittery bodysuits, platform boots and face paint – was intended as a statement against the peace-and-love, denim-clad hippie imagery dominating rock culture at the time. Bowie instead presented fans with cut-and-paste lyrics about the end of the world, and shocked them by dropping to his knees to perform mock fellatio on Ronson’s electric guitar or telling an interviewer he was bisexual (though he would later say that was just an experimental phase).“We wanted to manufacture a new kind of vocabulary,” Bowie told NPR’s Terry Gross in 2003. “And so the so-called gender-bending, the picking up of maybe aspects of the avant garde and aspects of, for me personally, of things like the Kabuki theater in Japan and German expressionist movies, and poetry by Baudelaire … it was a pudding of new ideas, and we were terribly excited, and I think we took it on our shoulders the idea that we were creating the 21st century in 1971.”His ever-changing, outrageous personae also served to mask the painful shyness and insecurity of his younger years.“I didn’t really have the nerve to sing my songs onstage,” he told Musician magazine in 1983. Referring to the various personae, he said: “I decided to do them in disguise so that I didn’t have to actually go through the humiliation of going onstage and being myself. I continued designing characters with their own complete personalities and environments. I put them into interviews with me! Rather than be me – which must be incredibly boring to anyone – I’d take Ziggy in, or Aladdin Sane or the Thin White Duke. It was a very strange thing to do.” A plaque marks the location of the cover photograph of the iconic cover for British musician David Bowie’s album “Ziggy Stardust” in central London. Justin Tallis/AFPActor and innovatorAlong with his own music, he promoted the careers of lesser-known musicians such as Iggy Pop, Lou Reed and Mott the Hoople, whose signature hit, “All the Young Dudes,” was written by Bowie. In 1974 he moved to Los Angeles, whose hyped-up, drugged-out music scene – the “Fame” and “Fascination” immortalized on his album “Young Americans” – took a toll. Extensive cocaine use made him jittery and paranoid, even as it enabled him to be creatively prolific.Seeking calm and anonymity, Bowie spent much of the late 1970s in West Berlin, where in collaboration with Brian Eno he produced three albums that experimented with ambient sound and presaged the synthesizer-heavy music of the 1980s.Returning to live in New York City, he began expanding his range as an actor. Having starred in the 1976 Nicholas Roeg film “The Man Who Fell to Earth,” in 1980 he played the lead in a stage production of “The Elephant Man,” for which Variety praised his “charismatic personality … suggesting springs of passion beneath the severe physical handicaps of the character.”In both roles he played sensitive freaks misunderstood by the society around them, a theme that had also permeated much of his music. He also starred in “Just a Gigolo” with Marlene Dietrich (1978), in the Tony Scott vampire film “The Hunger” with Catherine Deneuve (1983) and as a rebellious prisoner of war in “Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence” (also 1983).https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfccDapMA14Bowie’s commercial musical pinnacle also came in 1983, with the blockbuster album “Let’s Dance.” It blasted him into international superstardom, though critics complained that it lacked the depth of his earlier work. Its unexpected success threw Bowie into a creative tailspin. Having planned to follow it with more esoteric material, he instead tried to duplicate the “Let’s Dance” success with albums that were critical flops.“I suddenly felt very apart from my audience,” he told Live magazine in 1997. “And it was depressing, because I didn’t know what they wanted.”Bowie regularly released albums through the 1980s and 1990s, although none approached the success of his previous output. But he continued to innovate, in 1996 becoming the first musician of his stature to release a song, “Telling Lies,” exclusively via the Internet. He caused a sensation when he was the first to sell asset-backed bonds, known in his case as “Bowie bonds” and acquired by Prudential, tied to the royalties on his back catalogue.By the eve of the century he had once aspired to create, Bowie seemed to be finally settling down. He fell in love – a condition his younger self had pooh-poohed – with the model Iman Abdulmajid, whom he married in 1992 and with whom he had a daughter, Alexandria Zahra Jones, in 2000. After suffering a heart attack backstage during a tour in 2004, he stopped producing albums or touring for nearly a decade, devoting himself to family life. He even got his vulpine teeth capped, to the disappointment of some fans.But in 2013, the same year an elaborate retrospective of his visual legacy began touring the world, the 66-year-old Bowie released a new album, recorded in secret, called “The Next Day.” His first album in a decade and the 24th of his career, it was praised by critics, who called it innovative even as it hearkened back to his early music.That Bowie was still reinventing himself in his seventh decade could not have surprised those who knew him. “David’s a real living Renaissance figure,” Roeg told Time magazine in 1983. “That’s what makes him spectacular. He goes away and re-emerges bigger than before. He doesn’t have a fashion, he’s just constantly expanding. It’s the world that has to stop occasionally and say, ‘My God, he’s still going on.’ ” © 2016, The Washington Post Facebook Comments David Bowie, the self-described “tasteful thief” who appropriated from and influenced glam rock, soul, disco, new wave, punk rock and haute couture, and whose edgy, androgynous alter egos invited fans to explore their own dark places, died Sunday. Bowie had turned 69 on Friday, the same day he released his latest album which was entitled “Blackstar.”The cause was cancer, said a representative.With his sylphlike body, chalk-white skin, jagged teeth and eyes that appeared to be two different colors, Bowie combined sexual energy with fluid dance moves and a theatrical charisma that mesmerized male and female admirers alike.Citing influences from Elvis Presley to Andy Warhol – not to mention the singer Edith Piaf and writers William S. Burroughs and Jean Genet – Bowie was trained in mime and fine arts, and played saxophone, guitar, harmonica and piano. A scavenger of musical and visual styles, he repackaged them in striking new formats that were all his own, in turn lending his dramatic, gender-bending aesthetic to later performers such as Prince and Lady Gaga.With “a melodic sense that’s just well above anyone else in rock & roll,” the singer Lou Reed once wrote, “David Bowie’s contribution to rock & roll has been wit and sophistication.” His output between 1969 and 1983 made up “one of the longest creative streaks in rock history,” according to Rolling Stone magazine.

AFP/Getty Images North America/Andrew H. WalkerBy the height of his fame in the early 1980s, Bowie had enacted his own death repeatedly, in the form of characters and ensembles he would create, inhabit and then discard. “My policy has been that as soon as a system or process works, it’s out of date,” he said in a 1977 interview. “I move on to another area.”The practice, which extended to friendships and professional partnerships, could be jarring. The Spiders From Mars, his band during his glitter-rock Ziggy Stardust years, learned that they were being fired when Bowie announced it onstage at the end of a 1973 tour.To fans as well, Bowie’s rapid transitions could feel like whiplash. In the space of five years he was a curly-haired folk singer; a Lauren Bacall look-alike in an evening gown; a vampiric creature with a red mullet, shaved eyebrows and a skintight, multicolored bodysuit; and a coked-up dandy in a tailored suit, suspenders, fedora and cane.Some of these looks had alter egos associated with them, such as Ziggy Stardust, a fictional rock star who is ultimately ripped to pieces by his fans, or the Thin White Duke, a spectral, disaffected figure dressed impeccably in cabaret-style evening wear who throws “darts in lovers’ eyes.”
The Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court, or Sala IV, ordered the Costa Rican government to outline a plan to protectCorcovado National Park and other nearby areas in the country’s southern Pacific from ongoing illegal actions from loggers, gold miners and poachers.The court issued the ruling on Jan. 27 in response to an appeal filed in August 2015 by environmental groups and experts against the Environment, Public Security and Finance ministers.Justices ordered the three ministers to coordinate, within two months, “all necessary actions to implement a surveillance plan to guarantee the permanent protection of Corcovado National Park and the Golfo Dulce Forest Reserve,” a nearby protected area.It also orders Public Security Ministry officials to immediately take all necessary actions to evict every person conducting illegal logging, poaching and gold mining in the park, which is located on the Osa Peninsula.Legal complaintThe complaint before the Sala IV was a group effort that comprised collaborations from the Costa Rican Federation for Environmental Conservation (FECON), the Environment Ministry’s Workers’ Union, and the NGO Preserve Planet.Various scientists, filmmakers and other experts also contributed to the drafting of the complaint. Among them was Mario Boza, who played a key role in the creation of various Costa Rican national parks.Authors of the complaint described the current situation in Corcovado “as a complete disaster.”They stated that large areas of the park are seriously threatened by poaching, illegal logging and “the permanent presence of some 400 gold miners using heavy machinery and dynamite.”The complaint cites numerous documented examples from scientific research and on-the-ground inspections that concluded that these actions are severely reducing populations of several species of animals and plants.These illegal actions are also causing enormous damage to vast areas of vegetation and forests, the complaint states. As an example, the claim quotes the results of an inspection conducted in 2013 in response to a report of illegal mining.“Park rangers and experts found that gold miners used dynamite to remove some 10 square kilometers (3.8 square miles) of material, equivalent to some 2,000 waste trucks full,” states the document. “This is equivalent to medium-scale open-pit mining.” Justices ordered the immediate eviction of every person conducting illegal logging, poaching and gold mining inside Corcovado National Park. Lindsay Fendt/The Tico TimesDecision applaudedFECON President Mauricio Álvarez told The Tico Times on Thursday that he is satisfied with the Sala IV’s ruling, as it represents a good precedent for similar environmental fights.Álvarez said that FECON will monitor the ministries’ compliance with the ruling.“Despite the abandonment and violence that the national parks are being subjected to, parks keep providing us with food, water and air. They are a source of knowledge, of education and recreation,” he said.Álvarez noted that it is essential to improve resources available at the national park, especially staff. Today, there are only 15 park rangers to protect more than 40,000 hectares of land, he said.“And they work in alternate shifts, so not all of them are patrolling at the same time,” Álvarez said.Natural treasureCorcovado National Park is located 335 kilometers southwest San José and comprises 42,560 hectares of land and 3,354 hectares of sea.The area has an unusual amount of biological diversity that is unmatched anywhere else in the world in a similar-sized area. The park is home to more than 500 species of trees, 140 species of mammals, 40 species of freshwater fish, 117 species of amphibians, and about 6,000 species of insects.Four species of sea turtles lay their eggs on Corcovado’s beaches, and its forests house the largest population of red macaws in Costa Rica.The Osa Peninsula, where the park is located, is home to 69 percent of Costa Rica’s endangered vertebrate species. It is also home to half of the country’s endangered plants and one third of its endangered trees.According to official data, Corcovado is home to 50 percent of the country’s species and harbors 3 percent of the world’s biodiversity. National Geographic famously referred to Corcovado as “the most biologically intense place on Earth in terms of biodiversity.”In September, the travel company Discovercorps ranked Corcovado at the top of its list of best national parks in the world.Recommended: Photos: Corcovado is like ‘Jungle Book’ without tigers and bearsThis video of a puma devouring an iguana inside Corcovado National Park went viral last month: Facebook Comments Related posts:Alleged gold miners camp outside Corcovado National Park, demand compensation Alleged gold miners end protest at Corcovado National Park Costa Rica launches quest to replace most single-use plastic by 2021 Costa Rican researchers want to use nature sounds in healing therapies
