Christopher Dana Reeve Foundation To Host A Magical Evening Chicago

first_imgThe Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation announced today that it will host its inaugural “A Magical Evening Chicago” Gala on Thursday, October 22, 2015, at The Peninsula Chicago hotel.The evening will commemorate advancements in spinal cord research, and highlight the efforts of Chicago supporters to raise funds and awareness for the Reeve Foundation mission.This year’s event will honor Chicago-based nonprofit leader Geoff Kent with the Jon O’Connor Visionary Leader Award and former Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon with the Christopher Reeve Spirit of Courage Award. A Magical Evening Chicago will also feature Kathy Brock, co-anchor of ABC 7 News, as the host for the evening.As the founder of Spinal Cord Injury Sucks, Geoff Kent has raised over $700,000 to fund cutting-edge spinal cord research and translational studies. Based in Chicago, Kent’s nonprofit presence has served to support and advocate for individuals living with paralysis similar to Jon O’Connor, the namesake of the Visionary Leader Award. O’Connor passed in 2013 following complications as a result of his spinal cord injury.Jim McMahon led the Chicago Bears to Super Bowl victory in 1985 and went on to be one of the most celebrated football players in Bears history.

Both Geoff Kent and Jim McMahon are exemplary individuals who have worked tirelessly to accelerate change for millions of Americans living with disabilities. They embody the very fabric of the Reeve Foundation mission and live by Christopher Reeve’s words that ’nothing is impossible.”The gala will also highlight the Reeve Foundation’s most ambitious campaign — The Big Idea — which aims to fast track the next phase of epidural stimulation research that enabled four young men to voluntarily move their legs, stand, and recover critical autonomic functions in the presence of the intervention.

Juxtapoz x Superflat opens at the Vancouver Art Gallery

first_imgThe Vancouver Art Gallery is pleased to present Juxtapoz x Superflat, a dynamic exhibition conceived by the renowned Japanese artist Takashi Murakami and co-curated with Evan Pricco, Editor-in-Chief of Juxtapoz Art & Culture, a legendary San Francisco-based magazine committed to contemporary art, design, fashion and graffiti. Featuring the work of more than 30 artists from Japan, Korea, Canada, the United States and Europe, this exhibition opens at the Vancouver Art Gallery on November 5, 2016 and runs until February 5, 2017.Juxtapoz x Superflat is a manifesto for new creative practices that can no longer be adequately described by the traditional categories of art and modes of production. Takashi Murakami and Evan Pricco conceived the exhibition as a survey of the most exciting visual art to emerge in recent years, with a heavy emphasis on artists who operate outside of the central hubs of the global art world. Expanding upon Murakami and Juxtapoz magazine’s interest in flattening high and low cultures, this exhibition includes work by artists whose practice has been shaped by a variety of sub-cultures including skate, surf, graffiti, street art, comics, design, illustration, painting, digital and traditional arts.“We want to see the newest things. That is because we want to see the future, even if only momentarily. It is the moment in which, even if we don’t completely understand what we have glimpsed, we are nonetheless touched by it.” With these words, written in 2001, Takashi Murakami famously declared that the future of Japanese art was “superflat”. For Murakami the idea of “superflat” meant many things — a recognition of the formal qualities of contemporary design, anime and manga; the fundamental importance of sub-cultures in the conception of contemporary art; the persistent presence of a banal and superficial consumer culture; a flattening of traditional hierarchies; and a reconfiguration of the edges and boundaries that have traditionally shaped meaning in contemporary cultural production. Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement Facebook “Over the past 22 years, Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine has documented the creative life through underground art and street culture,” remarks Evan Pricco. “In recent years, with the increasing popularity of contemporary art, Juxtapoz has become the staple for accessible communication of emerging art forms, contemporary art, design, fashion and graffiti. The magazine’s focus is a literal flattening of high and low cultures. In discussions with Takashi Murakami, Juxtapoz has curated a selection of artists covered in the magazine over the past two decades that encompass both growth and expansion in the sub-cultures they emerged from: skate, surf, graffiti, street art, comics, design, illustration, painting and digital and traditional arts.”Juxtapoz x Superflat includes work by Nina Chanel Abney, Chiho Aoshima, Urs Fischer, GATS, Kim Jung Gi, Kazunori Hamana, Trenton Doyle Hancock, John Hathway, Todd James, James Jean, Friedrich Kunath, Austin Lee, MADSAKI, Geoff McFetridge, Christian Rex van Minnen, Rebecca Morgan, Takashi Murakami, Kazumi Nakamura, Elisabeth Higgins O’Connor, Otani Workshop, Paco Pomet, Parra, Erin M.

Fortescue port expansion plans on hold due to new Australian resource tax

first_imgFortescue Metals Group has placed two out of the company’s three expansion projects on hold due to the financial impact of the Australian Government’s proposed Resource Super Profits Tax (RSPT). Fortescue says “The uncertainty in the financial markets caused by the proposed tax and the cash impost that RSPT payments will place on future business revenues has necessitated an urgent review of the economics surrounding the development of [its] major projects.”A key focus within the review process is the funding implications of a proposed retrospective imposition of a cash drain on projects that were financed prior to the RSPT. Also, the implications for financing new projects within Fortescue’s project pipeline will be reviewed and in particular clarification sought as to the Government’s ‘tax guarantee’ for 40% of project losses in the event of bankruptcy. The company remarked that “This initiative has been proposed by the government as an incentive for projects to proceed despite the tax however it is considered of no lending value by project financiers. Therefore the financial modelling of any future development must account for the 40% cash flow leakage without any compensatory benefit under the RSPT.”In reviewing Fortescue’s pipeline of planned expansion opportunities, the three key areas are:1. The development of the Solomon Hub2. The development of the Western Hub3. The completion of the development of the Chichester Hub.Solomon Hub: A$9 billion proposed investment with 6,000 people employed in operations and 15,000 through construction.Fortescue’s planned development of its flagship 160 Mt/y project known as the Solomon Hub is to be placed on hold until the finance impact of the RSPT can be fully determined. This project has been four years in development and includes the development of the proposed new Pilbara Port at Anketell Point. To develop Solomon, Fortescue had planned to establish a debt funded capital platform using equity derived from the cash flow from the company’s Chichester Hub. This financing plan will be severely impacted as a result of the new tax. Until the financial position is certain, the only work to continue on the Solomon Hub will be the completion of existing studies.Western Hub: Estimated A$6 billion proposed investment with 4,000 people employed in operations and 7,500 through construction.Fortescue’s longer term planning includes the potential development of the Western Hub to provide product for export through the proposed new Pilbara Port at Anketell Point. This project has also been put on hold.The development of Fortescue’s western tenements was designed to supply product for export together with product drawn from other miners within the western Pilbara region. Similar to the development of Solomon, the impact of the RSPT will be felt through the erosion of cash flows that are required to finance major project development. Fortescue: “Due to the government’s intention to impose the tax after a business commences to derive a return above the risk free bond rate of currently 6% compared to the company’s weighted average cost of capital of around 15%, the economics of a leveraged project development are substantially impaired.“Therefore, apart from the completion of existing studies for the new port and the Solomon Hub, the Western Hub will be placed on hold until the financial impairment of the proposed RSPT is clarified.”Chichester Hub: A$4.5 billion invested to date with 2,700 people employed in operations and 7,500 during construction.Planning for the further expansion of the Chichester Hub from 55 Mt/y to 95 Mt/y will proceed, as the financing of the project is generated from internal cashflows to be provided from existing operations over the next two years, prior to the proposed implementation of the tax in FY2012 and payment in FY2013. Fortescue will monitor the impact of the proposed tax on its ability to repay existing debt (raised to bring the Chichester Hub into existence), which must be considered in light of the retrospective nature of the RSPT implementation.In addition, cashflow generated by the Chichester Hub that was to be applied as equity to support ongoing developments will be severely curtailed by the proposed RSPT.Fortescue says it will continue to monitor the progress of debate and consultation on the RSPT. However, it explains that the company review of the economics surrounding project development and the subsequent decision to place the Solomon and Western Hub developments on hold as a result, has confirmed to Fortescue that the RSPT is poorly designed and will significantly reduce mining investment and the subsequent jobs that are created.last_img read more

Fourth show lights up night but no blast from the past

first_imgAs they sat in the shade waiting for Vancouver’s Fireworks Spectacular to start, Diane Bott, 52, and her daughter Trinity, 12, admitted they were a little disappointed.The show, in its 56th year, included the return of food vendors and music — both of which were missing in 2018 — but the gigantic crowds of earlier decades seemed nowhere to be found. Instead, visitors clustered throughout the late afternoon under trees, on blankets or wherever there was some shade from the warm sun at Fort Vancouver National Historic Site.It was a decent-sized crowd, but it certainly wasn’t 50,000 people, and likely not even the 35,000 that The Historic Trust was initially expecting. As of 8:30 p.m., about 12,000 people had gathered, according to Jennifer Harmon, an organizer with The Historic Trust, “but they are starting to come in droves.”“I don’t know what that means, but it is definitely starting to pick up,” she said in a phone message shortly before 9 p.m. “And C-Tran is dropping a lot of people off.”Harmon estimated a turnout of 20,000 to 22,000 people.“Last year was bad,” Bott said. “I was really disappointed. Without having food or music, we kind of regretted it. They said they were going to have more than what they have this year, but this is it — just a few food stands.

Texas Business Group Tallies Cost Of LGBT Discrimination

first_imgSCOTT THOMAS VIA FLICKRGay rights activists march on Harvey Milk Day to commemorate the civil rights leader and protest anti-gay policies in Texas in 2011.Texas could lose big if it pursues policies that curtail the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender residents. That’s the message from a study commissioned by the Texas Association of Business, the state’s chamber of commerce. The study finds that the state potentially faces huge losses, and it comes as fights over LGBT rights are brewing in Austin ahead of the next legislative session.Listen: The KERA News story.Discrimination carries costs, said Texas Association of Business president Chris Wallace, and lawmakers should be aware of them. He said businesses struggle to recruit and keep their most talented employees in a place that’s perceived as being unfriendly to LGBT people. That’s especially true for millennials, Wallace said.“They do not want to reside in a state, they do not want to reside in a city, nor work for a company, that is not accepting of all people. That’s why companies such as Apple, Intel, IBM and others are joining our coalition, because they are very, very concerned about the ability to recruit future talent,” he said.Already, with high-profile politicians pledging to pursue anti-LGBT policies, the state’s reputation as a good place to do business is being harmed, Wallace said.More than 1,100 companies in the state have already signed a pledge supporting LGBT rights, including Texas Instruments, Dell and American Airlines.  According to the Texas Association of Business study, which was done in conjunction with the St. Edwards University business school, as many as 185,000 jobs could hang in the balance. As for the total economic impact, the study shows a pretty wide range in potential hit to the state’s gross domestic product. Extrapolating from what happened in other states that passed laws curtailing LGBT rights, Wallace said Texas stands to lose anywhere from $964 million to $8.5 billion a year. Especially vulnerable, he says, are the tourism and entertainment industries.“We are going to do our best to make sure that legislation like this does not get passed,” he said.That cues up a potential fight between the Republican Party’s business-focused side in the state legislature, and its social-issues wing. Some distance has already emerged between the leadership in the capitol’s two chambers.Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, who leads the state Senate, has promised legislation that would block transgender people from using bathrooms that don’t match their sex at birth, arguing it would protect women. Exactly what Patrick’s bill might look like is still unclear as he hasn’t yet introduced it.Patrick’s counterpart in the House, Speaker Joe Straus, said such legislation isn’t an urgent concern.Texas Association of Business’ Wallace also pointed to legislation introduced by another Senate Republican as troubling. Sen. Bob Hall, who represents a district stretching from Dallas to points east, introduced a bill to bar cities and counties from protecting LGBT people from discrimination in housing, employment, government contracts or public accommodations. A dozen large cities in Texas already offer at least some protections, and they’d see those ordinances overturned if the legislation passed.During the state’s GOP convention in Dallas in May, Patrick panned the idea that such legislation would hurt the Texas economy, calling it posturing.“It’s just not real. It’s like the entertainer’s threat, ‘I’m not going to going to go and perform a concert in that city.’” he said. “Really? Fine, someone else will book the date. If the business doesn’t want to move there, another business will take your place.”According to Wired magazine, half a year after North Carolina passed sweeping legislation eliminating LGBT protections, the state had lost out on nearly $400 million. Several businesses scrapped plans to set up or expand operations there, concerts were canceled, and high-profile sporting events like the 2017 NBA All-Star Game were moved out of state.Copyright 2016 KERA-FM.

A way has been found to interconnect quantum devices including preserving entanglement

first_imgQuantum photonic interconnect and entanglement distribution between two integrated Si photonic chips. Credit: arXiv:1508.03214 [quant-ph] Explore further For modern electronic devices to work, there must be some channels for the different parts to use to convey information between them—such channels are usually either wire carrying electricity or fiber carrying photons and are called interconnects. But as researchers shrink down the parts, the interconnects more and more represent a bottleneck. Worse, as scientists conduct research into creating a truly quantum computer, the problem of creating interconnects for them has become a serious issue. Now, in this new effort, the research team is claiming to have found a solution—one where a separate entanglement stage is used to preserve the original entanglement needed as part of normal operations—demonstrating a way to connect two photonic chips.To allow for interconnection, the researchers ran two sources of photons along one of the chips, on channels that overlapped—when the photons met in the overlap area, they became entangled and that entanglement was then carried along different paths in the chip. They next ran the photons through a device that converted that path entanglement into a whole new type of entanglement, one that involved polarization, which also caused the creation of new entangled photons. Those newly entangled polarized photons were then passed into an optical fiber that ran between the two chips. The whole process was then reversed in the second chip, where the polarized photons were converted back to path entangled photons, which then behaved exactly like the photons in the first chip. The team conducted multiple different types of tests to prove that entanglement was preserved throughout the interconnection process.The team acknowledges that the process is still too inefficient to be implemented into real devices, but believe further refinement will lead to a usable solution. But, they have shown that it is possible to interconnect quantum devices, which should come as a relief to those working on building a quantum computer. © 2015 Phys.org Journal information: arXiv New method of quantum entanglement vastly increases how much information can be carried in a photoncenter_img This document is subject to copyright.

FILE In this July 3 2018 file photo President

first_img FILE – In this July 3, 2018 file photo, President Donald Trump arrives to speak to a “Salute to Service” dinner in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va.

The network also promised live coverage of a Trump rally Thursday in Montana, where Democratic Sen. Jon Tester faces a tough fight for re-election.Critics say Fox is essentially giving the Republican president free, repeated access to his supporters in a midterm election year.Fox counters that it is simply covering newsworthy events and that the criticism is absurd. The rallies have also been good for business.CNN and MSNBC generally do not air the rallies live, and once were taunted on the air by Fox for that.The programming choices represent a stark illustration of how the cable networks have positioned themselves during the Trump administration. The president gives an overwhelming percentage of his TV interviews to Fox personalities, prime-time host Sean Hannity is a close confidant and fierce defender, and the White House on Thursday announced the hiring of former Fox News executive Bill Shine as deputy chief of staff for communications.Meanwhile, MSNBC is now typically second only to Fox News Channel in popularity for all cable networks with a prime-time lineup that appeals to anti-Trumpers, who would probably howl if Chris Hayes or Rachel Maddow were knocked off the air for a presidential rally.Not counting Tuesday’s speech before a military group in West Virginia, Fox has aired Trump rally speeches virtually in their entirety six times, according to Media Matters, a liberal media watchdog. That amounted to six hours, 33 minutes of programming. Meanwhile, MSNBC aired one rally for about eight minutes, while CNN has shown none of them live.The airtime on Fox has “enormous value” politically, said Steve Schmidt, an MSNBC contributor and former campaign manager for Sen. John McCain who recently renounced the Republican Party over his distaste for Trump. This week’s speech in West Virginia was on the home turf of Joe Manchin, another Democratic senator up for re-election this fall in a state with a heavy concentration of Trump supporters.“I don’t say this lightly, but this is a network functioning as state television for the president of the United States,” Schmidt said.While past presidents would often campaign for broad public support for their policies, Trump is most interested in keeping his base of supporters excited and inflamed, he said. Fox offers exposure to a large group of his fans.Fox noted that two of the recent rallies came on the heels of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement announcement and Trump’s executive order ending his policy of separating migrant children from their parents.“The president makes news whenever he speaks, and in this nonstop news cycle, there are constant headlines for President Trump to react to,” Fox said in a statement.During coverage of one rally, Fox aired an onscreen message that said, “Trump rally live only on Fox News, other networks ignore presidential rally.”“It’s a bit odd to complain that this will give Trump an advantage,” said Tim Graham, director of media analysis for the conservative Media Research Center. “If so, then all of (the networks) were Trump fans in 2015 and 2016. It’s also a bit odd to suggest he’s less newsworthy now that he’s president.”Indeed, Trump appearances were catnip for cable news producers when he was a candidate. CNN chief executive Jeff Zucker said shortly before the 2016 election that his network made a mistake in airing too many of Trump’s campaign rallies in the early days of the campaign, largely because “you never knew what he would say.” MSNBC’s morning duo of Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, now outspoken Trump critics, lent him considerable airtime and credibility in the months before the 2016 primaries.CNN and MSNBC would not make executives available for comment. Network representatives note that there is a difference between covering a speech and carrying it live. In several cases, clips from the rallies air in later news coverage.Fox News is seeing what every network discovered during the campaign — that Trump draws eyeballs.During the South Dakota, Minnesota and and North Dakota events, which pre-empted Tucker Carlson’s prime-time show, Trump’s audience was bigger than what Carlson alone drew for his own show in the days surrounding the rallies, the Nielsen company said. Trump’s average audience twice exceeded 3 million viewers, and Carlson didn’t hit that mark on his own.Hannity already has the most popular program on cable, but on the night of the North Dakota rally — which took over the first 20 minutes of Hannity’s show — he averaged more than 4 million viewers. That was a bigger audience than Hannity reached on his own the previous week, Nielsen said.last_img read more

Anastasiades hits back at critics denies lack of engagement

first_imgPresident Nicos Anastasiades on Tuesday hit back at accusations, particularly from Akel, which has supported him at the Cyprus talks, that he was now putting re-election above a solution.Anastasiades was addressing the 54th congress of public service union workers Pasydy in Nicosia where he gave a rundown on the negotiations.“Although progress has been observed in the talks, there remain nevertheless problems that touch on functionality and human rights, which create, rather than stability for the future, raise concerns about the ability of the state to survive the day after,” he said.“With all due respect to the other community, I call on them, and especially on Turkey, to understand that it is not only them who have concerns or who would like to feel secure in their rights. ”It was Greek Cypriots who were the victims of an invasion, lost their properties, and  who were missing and dead as a result.“We want to have the Turkish Cypriots as our compatriots but I cannot, in the name of the solution have conditions that are not balanced.”This, he said, should be understood by all, especially “those who judge and criticise” saying he makes concessions, or others “who now say that I don’t want a solution because supposedly I am looking to the presidential elections.”Anastasiades said he had shown time and again his determination for a solution, agreeing to the Mont Pelerin talks where even maps were exchanged, and also agreeing to the Geneva meeting on security and guarantees.Despite the difficulties, and the actions of Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci in walking away from the talks over parliament’s Enosis vote, and Turkey’s threats over planned drilling in the island’s exclusive economic zone, Anastasiades said he was still engaged, even though some “call on me to disregard the fact that the territorial integrity of the Republic is being violated rather than them condemning the illegal actions of the occupying power”.He would not allow anyone to attribute any failure of responsibility to the Greek Cypriot side, he concluded.“At the same time, I am not at the table just to prevent blame being apportioned but as part of my stated my determination to pursue reunification, to seek the withdrawal of the occupation army, to create a modern European state that guarantees the rights of Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots, not rooted in injustice but the European acquis, so that we can have hope for the future.”You May LikeClassmates.comLook For Any High School Yearbook, It’s FreeClassmates.comUndoTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionOne Thing All Liars Have in Common, Brace YourselfTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionUndoFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
