Gordon Pinsent doc at TIFF most honest and revealing one on him

first_img Facebook TORONTO – Acclaimed actor Gordon Pinsent once used his wit and charm to sneak into Canada from his native Newfoundland before its confederation with the country.That revelation and more can be found in “The River of My Dreams: A Portrait of Gordon Pinsent,” which is set to make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.“He has made a number of films but I think that this film is truly the most honest and revealing and beautiful film about him,” says Brigitte Berman, the documentary’s director, who won an Oscar in 1987 for “Artie Shaw: Time Is All You’ve Got.” LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment “Others were very good and they are further back in time.

UN envoy to begin separate meetings with parties to Cyprus talks

Alvaro de Soto, Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Adviser on Cyprus, informed the leaders that he believed this was the best way to facilitate forward movement on the core issues, given the difficulty of formulating in direct talks a package of trade-offs to improve the plan proposed by Mr. Annan to reunify the island ahead of its entry into the European Union on 1 May.”While this process is underway, there will not necessarily be daily meetings between the leaders,” spokesman Fred Eckhard said in New York. “They will meet as necessary.”Last month, the Greek Cypriot leader, Tassos Papadopoulos, and the Turkish Cypriot leader, Rauf Denktash, agreed to continue talks until 22 March. Should discussions fail to reach agreement by then, Greece and Turkey will also join negotiations for a week.If the talks succeed in reaching agreement on modifications to the plan, then the entire proposal will be submitted to separate referenda for approval by the Greek Cypriots and the Turkish Cypriots. read more

More women getting a seat on the board for Alberta businesses U

(Pixabay) Alberta women are making their way into more leadership roles, according to a new study released Thursday from the University of Calgary. The numbers show a promising trend.Out of the Alberta businesses listed on the TSX, 32 per cent of board of director members are women — which is up from 22 per cent last year. Associate Dean of Research Lauren Falkenberg says having a mandatory amount of women on boards is not at the expense of well qualified staff.“Diversity is critical. If you continue to say ‘only old white men are experienced enough because they put enough years into the business model’, I’m not really sure I follow that argument.”Falkenberg says, out of the companies studied, the largest ones are the leaders in diversification.

Alcohol abuse kills three million people a year most of them men

“Far too many people, their families and communities suffer the consequences of the harmful use of alcohol through violence, injuries, mental health problems and diseases like cancer and stroke,” said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO’s Director-General, adding that “it’s time to step up action to prevent this serious threat to the development of healthy societies.”WHO’s Global status report on alcohol and health 2018 reveals that of all deaths attributable to alcohol, 28 per cent were caused by injuries (from traffic accidents, self-harm and violence); 21 per cent were due to digestive disorders; and the remainder were caused by cardiovascular diseases, infectious diseases, cancers, mental disorders and other health conditions.Despite a reduction in heavy episodic drinking and the number of alcohol-related deaths since 2010, WHO says the figures of disease and injuries caused by alcohol remain “unacceptably high,” particularly in Europe and the Americas.Currently, about 2.3 billion people drink an average of 33 grams of pure alcohol a day, roughly equivalent to two glasses (each of 150 ml) of wine, a large (750 ml) bottle of beer or two shots (each of 40 ml) of spirits. Europe has the highest per capita consumption – and global consumption is predicted to increase in the next decade, especially in South-East Asia, the Western Pacific and the Americas. The report shows that some 237 million men and 46 million women are suffering from alcohol-use disorders and that these disorders are more common in high-income countries. School surveys indicate that, in many countries, alcohol use starts before the age of 15 with very small differences between boys and girls.“All countries can do much more to reduce the health and social costs of the harmful use of alcohol,” said Dr. Vladimir Poznyak, Coordinator of WHO’s Management of Substance Abuse unit. “Proven, cost-effective actions include increasing taxes on alcoholic drinks, bans or restrictions on alcohol advertising, and restricting the physical availability of alcohol.”The report shows that although almost all (95 per cent) countries have alcohol taxes, fewer than half of them use other price strategies such as banning below-cost selling or volume discounts. In addition, while many countries have bans on advertising on television and radio, the restrictions are rare when it comes to the internet and social media advertising.“We would like to see Member States implement creative solutions that will save lives,” Dr. Tedros said. “We must do more to cut demand and reach the target set by governments of a 10 per cent relative reduction in consumption of alcohol globally between 2010 and 2025,” in line with Target 3.5 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).WHO stressed that reducing the harmful use of alcohol will also help achieve several other health-related SDG targets, including for maternal and child health, infectious diseases, non-communicable diseases, mental health, injuries and poisonings. read more

Irish peacekeepers in Lebanon at risk from jihadist threat says top general

first_img 29 Comments By Sean Murray Major General Michael Beary Source: Hassan Ammar AP/Press Association ImagesBeary said that the potential return of “very hardened fighters” of the Hezbollah militant group from Syria was a worry, but hoped that initiatives put in place by UNIFIL to interact with the local communities in south Lebanon would be effective at preventing fighting in the future.“Instead of the concept of resistance,” he said, “we try to build the concept of resistance to war”.UNIFIL forces began to work alongside Lebanese armed forces to maintain peace in the region under a UN resolution passed after the 2006 war with Israel.Earlier this month, civilians attacked a number of UN peacekeepers out on patrol in the region. None were injured but several vehicles were damaged.“Civilians attempted to block the way of UNIFIL patrols and attacked the peacekeepers,” a UNIFIL statement said.UNIFIL patrol vehicles had to push aside some civilian vehicles used as roadblocks in order to safely pull out from the locations.Beary added that Irish peacekeepers have made a significant contribution to peace in south Lebanon since 1978.Ireland was also not included in a recent report from the UN, which singled out countries that did not live up to their commitments on peacekeeping contributions.With reporting from AFP – © – AFP 2017Read: Ireland is sending 130 soldiers into one of “the most dangerous UN missions in the world”Read: “It should never have happened”: Irish soldiers’ forgotten battle told in Siege of Jadotville Feb 19th 2017, 2:16 PM File photo: Irish peacekeepers in Lebanon Image: Rollingnews.ie Sunday 19 Feb 2017, 2:16 PM http://jrnl.ie/3247787 15,705 Views IRISH PEACEKEEPERS STATIONED in south Lebanon are at risk of being targeted by militant jihadists, according to the Irish General who commands the UN force in the country.More than 300 Irish soldiers currently serve in Lebanon and “the biggest concern”, according to United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) Major General Michael Beary, is the “jihadist threat”.He told RTÉ’s This Week programme: “Definitely, we would be a target for that kind of activity because a lot of member states who are contributing to UNIFIL are part of the global coalition against ISIS, so it is something I have to be very careful with.Our indications would certainly be that, with the retrenchment of ISIS and such groups as Nusra in Syria and in Iraq, that there is the possibility that they will seek to exit through Lebanon.“We do know, for example, that we have Sunnite jihadists within the body of some of the Palestinian refugee camps, so we have to be extremely careful with that to ensure that it doesn’t affect the work of UNIFIL in south Lebanon.”UN peacekeepers are stationed in south Lebanon and the UNIFIL mission monitors the ceasefire line which separates Lebanon and Israel.

WISHH Organizes Buyers Conference in Senegal

first_imgThe American Soybean Association’s (ASA) World Initiative for Soy in Human Health (WISHH) organized a conference for U.S. protein products on trade, food technology and nutrition, held this week in Dakar, Senegal.Joining WISHH on this U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) funded activity were the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute (ASMI), American Peanut Council (APC), USA Dry Bean Council, and USA Dry Pea and Lentil Council. Buyers from seven African countries joined Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) representatives from Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa and Senegal to link with the U.S. commodity groups to discuss the demand for protein, African food markets and the ability of various U.S. commodities and suppliers’ ability to supply the markets.Tariffs, logistics and unfamiliarity with products and suppliers are common challenges to entering these markets. WISHH has blazed a trail and now five countries are importing U.S. soy. As a result of the conference, several of the African WISHH supply chain partners have started dialogues with other U.S. cooperators that could result in new U.S. exports.last_img read more

Language Cluster Fuels Montereys Case for Retaining Defense Missions

first_imgBy the early 1990s, leaders in Monterey, Calif., started branding the region as the “Language Capital of the World,” to capitalize on the area’s linguistic and cultural heritage, and higher education resources, including the Defense Language Institute (DLI) and the Naval Postgraduate School.The city registered the slogan from 1997 to 2007, but its use lapsed, reported the Monterey Herald. More recently, though, as the threat of a new BRAC round loomed, elected officials and local leaders have rekindled efforts to showcase the region’s language specialty. In 2014, the Monterey County Business Council paid to have the “Language Capital of the World” logo trademarked.Last year, the city hosted the inaugural Language Capital of the World Cultural Festival, a two-day event intended to highlight the area’s language training, translation and academic resources.A new round of base closures potentially threatens the $1.5 billion annual economic impact of the region’s defense sector. Well over half of that is generated by DLI and the language and culture component of the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS), estimates Dino Pick, Monterey’s deputy city manager of plans and public works.The region’s cluster of language-related institutions developed alongside its defense facilities. Civilian DLI instructors founded what was originally called the Monterey Institute of International Studies (MIIS), and its instructors now train DLI faculty, according to Pick.The strong linkages between the area’s defense facilities and its other linguistic resources are a compelling reason to preserve those missions in central California, he says.“As we go forward into potential base realignment and closure rounds in the next several years, it’s the ‘Language Capital of the World’ capability and the interconnectedness of DLI and MIIS and NPS that will be an important component in making the case that these missions — DLI and NPS — should stay here in Monterey,” said Pick.

Episode IX Gets a New Screenwriter and John Boyega Discusses Leias Sendoff

first_imgStay on target Fans are nervous about Star Wars: Episode IX, possibly more so than they were about The Force Awakens. That’s partially due to director Collin Trevorrow’s most recent movie, The Book of Henry, receiving overwhelmingly terrible reviews. Then there was the recent firing of the Han Solo movie’s directors that points to a level of studio meddling that doesn’t always turn out well. Those two events are enough to get some fans wondering about Disney’s ability to maintain the quality of the most recent Star Wars movies. Now, in a move that is unlikely to soothe any of those fears, Star Wars Episode IX is bringing on a new writer.Variety reports that British screenwriter and playwright Jack Thorne has been hired to polish the latest draft of Episode IX. The draft itself was written by Trevorrow and his writing partner Derek Connolly. The pair previously worked together on both Jurassic World and Safety Not Guaranteed. If Thorne’s name sounds familiar, it’s possible you may be a Harry Potter fan. Thorne’s most recognizable past work is Harry Potter Eand the Cursed Child, which was based on a story by J.K. Rowling. That’s pretty promising. While some fans disagreed with the direction the play took the characters, Cursed Child was still a fun and well-written follow-up to Rowling’s beloved book series. If there’s one thing Thorne has proved he can do, it’s writing a worthwhile continuation of a beloved series.Variety stresses that despite recent turmoil in the Han Solo movie, their sources claim this polishing isn’t outside the norm for a movie this size. Big blockbusters like this often go through script polishing and rewrites as production begins. Either way, it doesn’t appear to be pushing production off schedule. The still-untitled Star Wars: Episode IX is due out on May 24, 2019.But there’s no point in worrying about Episode IX just yet when we still have Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi to look forward to this year. John Boyega has been on the interview circuit recently teasing details about the movie. First, he appeared on ABC News’ Popcorn with Peter Travers, where the pair discussed how the series would handle Carrie Fisher’s passing. Though Disney CEO Bob Iger has previously said Fisher’s role in The Last Jedi will not change, Boyega says she will get an amazing sendoff.“It sends her off in an amazing, amazing way, and she’s still kept alive in this franchise,” Boyega says. “That’s the beauty of it. She lives forever in a sense.”Boyega doesn’t go into exactly what that means, but it sounds like Fisher’s final performance does justice to her memory. However they end up sending the character off, I like the idea that she’s kept alive in some sense. Just as Fisher does in our hearts, Leia Organa will live on in the Star Wars universe.On a lighter note, Boyega also had an interview with IGN where he revealed a few plot details of The Last Jedi. It was revealed at Star Wars Celebration that Finn would be forced to go back undercover in the First Order, after escaping from the organization just one movie earlier. As you might imagine, Finn isn’t too happy about that.“Well, it’s like imagine you work at McDonald’s. You push your manager into a chute compactor, and then a year later you decide to go back dressed as one of the colleagues,” Boyega said. He clarified that Finn recognizes that a mission needs to be completed, but he doesn’t go along without a fight. “It’s something that he’s gonna have to face for himself.”Boyega went on to say that for his part, he had a lot of fun getting back in the uniform for an undercover mission. Even if it’s a little silly that no one at his old job recognizes him. “I’d be thinking to myself walking in one of those scenes, isn’t anyone gonna go, ‘Wait, isn’t that Finn?’ Do you know what I mean? But such is the magic of Star Wars,” he told IGN.We’ll all get to watch Finn go undercover when The Last Jedi arrives in theaters on December 15, 2017.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

City foodie scales new highs

Leading the way was city-based Lite Bite Foods — the group has over eight core brands under its umbrella — who have been awarded the food and beverage concessions at the new Terminal 2 at the Mumbai international Airport (CSIA) with Package 1. It is made up of 21 outlets that includes the International Security Hold Area (SHA) Food court and the domestic SHA departure non-food court outlets — and Package 3, comprising a total of nine outlets pre-security and at arrivals outlets.

CLIA reports cruise industry surpassed 2016 passenger projections

first_img Posted by Share Tags: CLIA, Trend Watch CLIA reports cruise industry surpassed 2016 passenger projections Travelweek Group center_img << Previous PostNext Post >> Wednesday, May 24, 2017 WASHINGTON — The cruise industry had a better than expected year in 2016, says CLIA, reaching 24.7 million passengers globally and surpassing earlier ocean cruise passenger projections of 24.2 million.The good news doesn’t stop there – based on current new vessel launch schedule and expected regional deployment, another positive year of growth is anticipated for 2017, with a passenger forecast of 25.8 million.“One of the many reasons that the cruise industry continues to thrive is because of the personalization it is able to offer to its guests from around the world,” said Cindy D’Aoust, president and CEO, CLIA. “Never before have I been a part of or seen an industry that is so good at listening and reacting to what its customers want, and this is why we are going to see our industry continue to grow.”The top cruise destinations in 2016 were: the Caribbean (35%); Mediterranean (18.3%); Europe without Mediterranean (11.1%); Asia (9.2%); Australia/New Zealand/Pacific (6.1%); Alaska (4.2%); and South America (2.5%).More news:  AMResorts has a new Sr. Dir. of Cdn. Sales & Consortia Rel’nsMuch of the industry’s growth can be attributed to the Asian market, which enjoyed a 38% increase from 2015. The increased capacity in the region, combined with travellers in this region going on shorter and more frequent cruises, has kept this marketplace at the top of emerging markets.Globally, the 2016 CLIA fleet was comprised of 458 ships and welcomed nine new ocean ships and 17 new river vessels for a total of 26 new ships.

Seasonal itineraries cover northern Europe, the Atlantic Ocean, Cuba and the French Antilles, South America, southern Africa, China and Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Oman. In 2014, MSC Cruises launched an investment plan to support the second phase of its growth through the order of two ships of the Meraviglia generation and two others of the Seaside generation (plus an option for a third) and in February 2016, confirmed the existing options to build a further two now Meraviglia Plus ships with an even greater capacity. In April 2016 this rose to €9 billion with the announcement of signing of the letter of intent to build a further four ships, each with next-generation LNG propulsion technology. Consequently, between 2017 and 2026 a total of up to 11 new, next-generation MSC Cruises ships will come into service. MSC Cruises is the first global cruise line brand to develop an investment plan of this length and magnitude, spanning a horizon of over ten years, from 2014 through 2026. MSC Cruises feels a deep responsibility for the environments in which it operates, and was the first company ever to earn the Bureau Veritas “7 Golden Pearls” for superior management and environmental stewardship. In 2009, MSC Cruises began an enduring partnership with UNICEF to support various programmes assisting children worldwide. So far, more than €5m has been collected in voluntary guest donations.Source = MSC Cruiseslast_img read more
