US for strong laws in Sri Lanka that protect film distribution

The United States noted that strong and transparent laws that protect film distribution will ensure that Sri Lankan creatives will drive economic growth, are paid fairly, and can share Sri Lanka’s stories with the world.The US Embassy in Colombo said today that US experts had joined four Sri Lankan film professionals in a panel discussion about how effective film distribution benefits Sri Lanka’s movie industry, artists, and audiences at Hatch, a workplace for entrepreneurs. Speaking at the event, U.S. Ambassador Alaina B. Teplitz said. “One of our core beliefs is freedom of speech, and movies are one of the most powerful ways that we can share our stories with each other. Strong and transparent laws that protect film distribution will ensure that Sri Lankan creatives will drive economic growth, are paid fairly, and can share Sri Lanka’s stories with the world.” Representing Film Independent, America’s premiere organization for independent moviemaking, entertainment lawyer Michael Donaldson and Global Media Makers Senior Program Manager Shari Page emphasized how film distribution is a key channel for storytellers to reach their audiences.

Following the panel, participants and audience members gathered for a networking event at Commons Café.

In Egypt Assembly President points way towards more relevant responsive and inclusive

“That is the message at the heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, Mogens Lykketoft told participants at a round table with regional Cairo Centre for Conflict Resolution and Peacekeeping in Africa.Too often, governments have failed to ensure that all segments of society benefit from economic development, or ignored the science of climate change and done far too little to shift to low-carbon climate resilient economies, he said, add, that too often, faced with security threats or demands for better governance, governments have reacted rashly – clamping down on civil society; eroding civil liberties or excluding political opponents.“And while motivations may differ for taking such action, the impact is always the same – confidence in public institutions dwindles, societies become more polarized and people move closer to violence or extremism,” explained Mr. Lykketoft, echoing former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, who said, ‘there can be no peace without development, no development without peace and neither without human rights.’At the same time, the international community and the UN especially, can and must do much more to support member states make progress across all three pillars. Indeed, the Assembly president continued, as the UN marks its 70th anniversary, the Organization itself is “very much at a cross roads, particularly in the area of peace and security” with the architecture developed over the seven decades now struggling to keep pace with today’s and tomorrow’s threats and geopolitical tensions, in a way that is undermining Member State trust.Recalling that last year, Member States had joined hands in adopting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement on climate change, Mr. Lykketoft also noted that in the security sphere, ther had been renewed cooperation between major Powers on Iran, and even on Syria.“Now, we must build on that spirit. With major UN reviews underway on peace and security matters and a new Secretary-General to be selected over the next six months, there is a real opportunity to do just,” he explained, spotlighting the particular need for “concrete action to make the UN more relevant, credible, legitimate and capable for major, regional and local powers alike.” This world included, he said making the UN Security Council more representative and more effective, for example, by addressing the use of the veto in situations involving mass atrocity crimes. But it also includes agreeing budgetary and institutional reforms to prioritize political solutions and prevention across every aspect of the UN’s approach to sustaining peace.Mr. Lykketoft said the UN also needs to work more seamlessly across its peace and security, sustainable development and human rights pillars; engage more consistently with affected communities and ensure women are more involved in both preventing and resolving conflicts. Moreover, he highlighted the need to identify concrete ways for the Organization to help tackle global terrorism and prevent violent extremism, including in the context of UN mandated missions and operations.And finally, he said there is a need for more strategic cooperation between the United Nations and regional organizations and for opportunities to involve those member states who wish to play greater roles in global peace and security.“The next UN Secretary-General will therefore have a unique window of opportunity early in her or his term to put those changes into place,” he said, noting that the new UN chief would need sustained from Member States, including regional powers like Egypt.Before wrapping up his remarks, the Assembly President drew the attention of the roundtable to one other issue – the 60million people displaced in our world today. “Having just participated in the World Humanitarian Summit and visited a refugee camp in Turkey, regrettably, it seems that we remain a long way off the solutions that are desperately needed.”With that in mind, he noted that on 19 September, Member States will gather in New York for a Summit on how to address large movements of refugees and migrants, and he expressed the sincere hope, the event will signal a shift in momentum so that those 60million people can begin to experience hope and the solidarity of the international community. read more

Console seminar to help employers identify warning signs of suicide in their

first_imgTHE SUICIDE PREVENTION charity Console is holding a special training programme  to help employers and colleagues recognise the warning signs of a suicide crisis and learn the skills that could help save a co-workers life.The programme also aims to help employers and colleagues cope with the aftermath of a death by suicide in the workplace.SuicideConsole’s Director of Services Ciaran Austin said: The tragic and shattering reality of suicide can have a profound effect on the workplace as it is a community where people spend up to half their waking hours and often form important relationships.He siad Console’s training programme aims to help employers respond in a compassionate and informed way when a workplace is affected by suicide.Austin said there is often a sense of fear or trepidation around this issue in people’s places of work that prevents people from looking for help, or helping others who may be bereaved by suicide.Breaking the silence“It takes courage to break that silence and speak about suicide in our workplaces but saying nothing is not an option. That only reinforce those fears and anxieties and adds to the stress of those affected,” he said.As well as prevention, the training programme looks at how employers can deal effectively with situations involving the death of an employee and also how to help a staff member who has been affected by the suicide of someone close to them.The programme is aimed at employers, human resource managers and other professionals who want to be able to respond appropriately to a death by suicide in the workplace, said Austin.How to handle a crisisHe added: Research suggests that when employers handle these crises well there is a positive impact on on staff in terms of their reaction to the loss and the long term effect it has on them.The one day training course, hosted in Dublin by the National Suicide Prevention and Bereavement charity Console, will take place on on Friday, 15 November at the Marino Institute of Education in Griffith Avenue. The fee is €75 per person.All participants will receive an attendance certificate.Booking forms are available on www.console.ie or by ringing Console’s head office on 01 610 2638.Console offers counselling services and 24-hour helpline support to people in crisis and those bereaved by suicide.

Hundreds of Travellers outside Dáil for antiracism protest

first_imgMore: Martin ‘very annoyed’ by Fianna Fáil councillor’s call to ‘segregate’ Travellers > UP TO 300 people have gathered outside the Dáil this afternoon to protest against the rise of anti-Traveller racism among public representatives.A number of TDs have joined the protesters at Leinster House, including Labour’s Aodhán Ó Ríordáin, Socialist Party leader Joe Higgins and Sinn Féin’s Gerry Adams, Dessie Ellis and Pádraig MacLochlainn.The Irish Traveller Movement said it convened the rally in response to the rise in racism among politicians and judges which culminated in the burning of a house allocated to a Traveller family in Ballyshannon, county Donegal last month.Leaders of the Traveller community have spoken to the crowd, expressing concern about the impact of recent events on their lives and the lack of political action in taking public representatives to task on what they called “inflammatory incitement”.The 40 groups presented letters to the Taoiseach, Tánaiste and the leaders of each political party, stating that “to take no action against party members who had made racist remarks towards Travellers undermines our status and standing in Irish society”.Recent incidents involving two judges and a Fianna Fáil councillor “have caused deep upset to the Traveller family involved” and Travellers nationwide see them as “amplified examples of the hatred they experience on a daily basis”.In September and December last year, District Court Judge Seamus Hughes compared Travellers to “Neanderthal men abiding by the laws of the jungle” and associated a woman guilty of assault causing harm to the actions of a “tinker”.In January of this year, Donegal Councillor Sean McEniff told a local radio programme that Travellers should be “housed away from settle communities” before repeating the idea of “segregation” on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland show. Later the same month, Judge Geoffrey Browne used the word “knacker” when sentencing two members of the community for burglary in Tuam, county Galway.“When hatred is instigated by the beacons of public opinion and leadership: elected public representatives and the judiciary, it sends a clear message to Irish society that hatred, prejudice and racism directed toward Travellers is acceptable and in some instances to be applauded,” said Brigid Quilligan, the director of the Irish Traveller Movement.She told those attending the protest that anti-Traveller racism is at an all-time high.Recent events have caused a significant upsurge of incitement to hatred against us in social media and on the Internet generally.“In fact, just over a month ago the Irish Traveller Movement website was violently hacked by right wing extremists, necessitating an investigation by the Gardai. Everywhere Travellers turn we experience racism, that racism affects the totality of our lives –  now we live in fear of being attacked and burnt out of our homes while our political leadership is silent.”The movement has called for a public apology from McEniff but it remains outstanding, despite 40 complaints to the county council’s Racist and Sectarian Incident Reporting Scheme and a subsequent meeting with Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin.The group has also asked Justice Browne to retract his statement and apologise, urging Minister Shatter to censure the judge for his comments.Earlier: Over 40 Traveller groups to protest at the Dáil against racismRead: Traveller group expresses ‘deep concern’ over judge comments >last_img read more

Oakleigh Grammar celebrates 35th anniversary

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Oakleigh Grammar, a benchmark school for the Greek Community of Oakleigh and its surrounding suburbs, celebrated its 35th year last week. The event was held in the presence of the honourable Linda Dessau AC, Governor of Victoria, his excellency Bishop Iakovos of Miletoupolis, several members of the state government and opposition, members of the local community, the school principal and the entirety of the school community.Steve Dimopoulos MP, whose constituency is in Oakleigh, represented the government of Victoria, while the Shadow Minister of Public Transport, David Davis MP, represented the Opposition.The schools’ principal, Mark Robertson and the vice-president of the community, Chris Diamantopoulos, delivered keynote speeches, both referring to the vision of the people who worked hard in the past so that today this school can be considered one of the most significant educational institutes of the area, and also spoke of the work currently done at the school. A word of gratitude was given out to those who helped create the school, notably Father Moutafis, Konstantinos Papadopoulos, Athanasios Rovolidis, Dimitrios Zafeiropoulos, Vasileios Pateras, Andreas Provataris, and Nikitas Stavrinidis.Governor of Victoria Linda Dessau AC greets Oakleigh Grammar students.

The celebrations concluded on Saturday night, with a dance held by the Greek Community of Oakleigh and surrounding suburbs at the Vogue function room. The dance was attended by members of the community board, the school students and their parents and also representatives of community organisations and businesses.Oakleigh Grammar was founded in 1983, thanks to the efforts of the leaders of the Greek Orthodox Community and the contribution of Father Nikolaos Moutafis.The vision of the creators of this school was to create a foundation capable of housing the educational needs of the Greek-Orthodox community that lived in the southeastern suburbs of Melbourne. Initially known as the Greek-Orthodox College ‘Agioi Anargyroi’, it was renamed in 2012, when it was decided that all children, regardless of cultural and religious background, would be able to attend its classes. A belief that is pushed forward until this day, as it provides the ideal circumstances and opportunities for every student to achieve their potential.last_img read more

Washougal crime scene cleared

first_imgInvestigators work the scene Dec. 8, 2011, where a day earlier Steven Stanbary held police and firefighters off with a gun while his house burned to the ground in Washougal. WASHOUGAL– A black metal mailbox stands in front of an empty, grassy lot. Inside, a slightly discolored search warrant is nestled in a plastic sleeve.Elsewhere on the empty property in a quiet Washougal neighborhood, two charred trees still stand, living reminders of an unprecedented tragedy that lingers in the minds of neighbors and a city that’s worked to remove every last piece of a brutal double homicide and suicide that took place there.Nearly a year since Steven Stanbary killed his wife, her sister and himself, setting his house on fire and blasting away with high-powered rifles at police officers, most of the remnants of that day have finally been carted off. Three vehicles once belonging to Steven Stanbary were removed this week by surviving family members, the city said.With the vehicles’ removal, a once unthought-of ordeal is finally reaching a conclusion, Sherry Montgomery said. She is Washougal’s code enforcement officer. The city has never encountered a similar situation, she said, in which a visible crime scene took so long to clear.The reason the full cleanup took almost a year was because the city was “unclear who the responsible party was for a long time,” Montgomery said. “It became a shell game dealing with the banks.”last_img read more

Rampant pipeline theft fails to deter Mexico onshore oil bidders

first_img Facebook Comments MEXICO CITY – Five incidents of pipeline theft a day, a rate that’s almost doubled in the last two years, isn’t fazing potential bidders seeking to produce oil from onshore fields in five Mexican states.A record 79 private companies, including Engie of France and Pacific Exploration and Production Corp. of Colombia, have qualified to bid in the Dec. 15 auction now that Mexico’s new laws have opened oilfield development to private companies. That compares with 20 companies that qualified to bid in the country’s Sept. 30 offshore auction, underscoring how the chance to enter Mexico’s nascent oil market is outweighing risks.“I’m not too concerned about security at this stage,” said Stefan Olivier, CEO of London-based MX Oil. “We are very interested in Mexico and we are going to be bidding” in the Dec. 15 auction.Mexico’s state-owned oil producer Petroleos Mexicanos documented 3,600 illegal taps on pipelines in 2014, a 40 percent increase from the 2,627 a year earlier, costing the company an estimated $792 million in stolen fuel. The taps are used to siphon out oil and gasoline in transit.Pilfering more than quadrupled from 2009 to 2013, according to Pemex, as the company is known, which partially attributes its 11-year slide in crude production to the increase in illegal taps. Mexico is on pace to exceed a record 4,000 incidents of pipeline theft this year, up from 710 in 2010.Through the first eight months of the year, there were 3,547 illegal pipeline fuel taps reported, according to data gathered by Pemex, including 1,168 in the states where the 25 onshore fields will be auctioned next week. Two of the fields up for auction are located in the northern Tamaulipas state, which reported 561 incidents of pipeline theft through August, the most of any Mexican state. A Pemex press official sent the figures for pipeline theft in an email on Wednesday.Fifty-three of the 79 companies qualified to bid in the coming auction are based in Mexico. The fact that local participation has increased in the onshore auction suggests the security risks aren’t seen as a deterrent to potential bidding, according to Duncan Wood, director of the Mexico Institute at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington.“Every company knows that security will increase the cost of operating in Mexico, but they don’t see it as a deal-breaker in any way,” Wood said in a phone interview. “The Mexican companies already know the lay of the land. They have been operating in the country for years and are familiar with the way things work.”The additional expense required for security measures onshore might be offset by the low cost of entry and favorable royalty terms offered by the government, according to Tim Samples, a law professor and Mexican-energy analyst at the University of Georgia in Athens. The Finance Ministry and National Hydrocarbons Commission announced Nov. 30 that no minimum investment will be required for bidders, and that royalty levels on the fields will range from 1 to 10 percent.“These are bargain-bin fiscal terms here. They are rock bottom,” Samples said. “In this price environment with the on-the-ground realities of producing onshore in Mexico, it might be a necessity” for the government to lure companies with favorable financial terms.The onshore oil fields for auction are located in the states of Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas, in the northern Burgos basin, the eastern coastal state of Veracruz, and the southern Chiapas and Tabasco states. In April 2014, a hotel housing Weatherford International Ltd. oil workers in Ciudad Mier, Tamaulipas, was riddled with gun shots in an area of the country known for drug gangs.“The most salient operational risk relates to extortion,” Grant Sunderland, Latin America analyst at Verisk Maplecroft, wrote in an emailed response to questions. “There is a considerable risk that drug-trafficking organizations will ‘follow the money,’ and as oil and gas investment ramps up, foreign companies could become targets of crime.”Mexico’s government has proven it can provide adequate security forces for large-scale infrastructure projects such as onshore oil drilling, according to Randall Connally, chief executive officer at Northcote Energy of London. Northcote, which is building a facility in the Tabasco state, elected not to participate in the onshore oil auctions.“Anywhere in the world a certain amount of crime is to be expected,” Connally said in a Dec. 3 phone interview from Dallas. “The Mexican government has control of the vital components of their national infrastructure. Once the field is operating, especially if it’s a gas field, I don’t think you need to worry about organized crime.”© 2015, Bloomberg Related posts:Four dead, 16 injured in fiery blast at Mexico oil rig Foreign firms compete in historic Mexico oil auction Mexico indigenous group sees racism in Coca-Cola ad Donald Trump’s hated $23 billion in migrant cash unlocks Mexican creditlast_img read more

Singapores Passion Made Possible to entice tourists

first_imgThe Singapore Tourism Board and the Singapore Economic Development Board unveiled a unified brand, Passion Made Possible, to market Singapore internationally for travel and tourism industry.Launched officially in Singapore by Minister for Trade and Industry S.

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo 0 Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories The Arizona Cardinals are one of four teams alive in pursuit of a Super Bowl 50 championship.The Cards punched their ticket to the NFC Championship Game with a thrilling 26-20 overtime win over the Green Bay Packers at University of Phoenix Stadium that was hailed as an instant classic.But many pundits and fans around the country are still scratching their heads over a late-game coaching decision from Arizona head coach Bruce Arians. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling LISTEN: Bruce Arians, Arizona Cardinals head coach Your browser does not support the audio element. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Arians said Palmer didn’t necessarily call an audible, but had the option to check out of the original call when the Packers brought another defender into the box.“Everybody blocked the running play, so it’s a running play, but with one-on-one out there, you know you’re going to have time to throw it, so he stepped back and threw it,” Arians said. “I’ve got no problem with that.”The coach was a little more direct in explaining his stance on the decision after the game.“Oh, hell no,” he said. “I never regret a call.” – / 40 The Cardinals led 17-13 and faced a 2nd-and-8 from the Green Bay 22-yard line with 2:34 remaining after the Packers had called their third and final timeout. On the next play Carson Palmer threw a fade pass to Larry Fitzgerald, who was well covered by Green Bay’s Sam Shields. The pass fell incomplete and only five seconds elapsed on the play.The Cardinals did run the ball on third down, with David Johnson picking up four yards to the Green Bay 18. Chandler Catanzaro would kick a 36-yard field goal to stretch Arizona’s lead to seven points, but many were wondering why Arians would have called for a pass play, knowing that an incompletion would leave more time on the clock for one of football’s best quarterbacks, Aaron Rodgers, to engineer a comeback.As it turned out, he did. Rodgers hit Jeff Janis on a 41-yard Hail Mary touchdown pass as time expired and the Packers forced overtime, only to see the Cardinals win it just 1:05 into the extra period.Monday, Arians clarified the call.“I did call a run, but (the Packers) had 10 guys up, so it was going to be a negative run,” Arians told Bickley and Marotta Monday on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. “Larry’s one-on-one, I’ll take that all day long.”last_img read more

Two hundred kilometre walk in aid of stray dogs

first_imgThe soaring numbers of stray dogs have prompted many volunteers go to great lengths to help animal shelters cope in any way they can.But 43-year-old Graham Shackleton is taking the great lengths notion quite literally by aiming to walk the 200-kilometre distance from Cape Greco, Famagusta to Ayios Georgios harbour in Paphos starting on Saturday, December 16.His aim is raise funds for the Limassol-based dog shelter where he volunteers and raise awareness on animal welfare.“I worked out a few ideas to collect some money to help dogs of a shelter I’m volunteering,” Shackleton told the Sunday Mail.He is a volunteer at the Rescue and Rehome Cyprus shelter that arranges to find families mainly in the UK but also the rest of Europe for those pound dogs that are meant to be put to sleep.To help raise funds, he decided to set out on Saturday at around 6.30am when the sun rises from Cape Greco and walk to make it to Paphos for the next day’s sunset.Although he’s never done anything similar before he is determined to succeed in what seems an impossible feat.Graham Shackleton with his dog, Dallas“I like to keep fit, so it’s a good challenge,” Shackleton said.He added that volunteers from other shelters have expressed interest in walking with him parts of the way.During his walk journey, Shackleton will also be handing out flyers to raise awareness for spaying/neutering of pets and on the importance of adopting a shelter dog.He said that many have already rushed to support his initiative and spread the word.“So far, it’s been excellent,” Shackleton said.Shackleton will be covering his own expenses required for his trek but welcomes sponsors to help cover expenses for the shelter.Donations may be made through PaypalRnRCyprus@hotmail.comSponsors are asked to add in notes ‘sponsored walk’You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
