Bajrang gets top billing at World Championships

first_imgNew Delhi: India’s top grappler Bajrang Punia has been handed the top billing in the men’s 65kg freestyle category at the World Championships, slated to begin in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan from September 14. World number one Bajrang, who is in Russia for training ahead of the championships, had bagged a silver in the last edition and a bronze in 2013 in 60 kg. “Training abroad with foreign athletes has helped me grow as a wrestler. Sparring with some of the best names in Georgia, Russia and USA has made me more aware of my opponents,” said Bajrang.

Maharashtra wrestler Rahul Aware has been handed second seed in 61 kg while reigning junior world champion Deepak Punia has been seeded fourth in the 86 kg. “My training has gone really well and I am excited to make my World Championships debut. “Winning a gold at the World Junior Championships last month has boosted my confidence level and I am eager to give my all,” said Deepak, who ended India’s 18-year-old medal drought at the Junior World Championships.

French President Promises Efficiency with Proposed Immigration Law

By Sarah GoodmanRabat – French president Emmanuel Macron ended 2017 in a televised address gesturing to his plans for the coming year, including changes to toughen the country’s laws on immigration and asylum. On December 31, the telegenic Macron promised to deliver “humanity and efficiency” with France’s asylum policy. The French parliament is expected to debate the proposed legislation in the first quarter of the year. Such measures would harden the existing laws by making it easier to expel undocumented immigrants more quickly and in greater numbers.Critics of the proposed changes are concerned about an expedited asylum process and worry that such legal changes might also buttress anti-immigrant sentiments across France. During France’s presidential election last May, nearly 40 percent of the vote went to the far-right nationalist candidate Marine Le Pen, who campaigned on pledges to stop immigration to France.  Already in parts of southern France, new railway brigades of the police border force have been vested with the power to stop and search passengers’ identity papers, hoping to control undocumented immigrants suspected of traversing the country aboard its nexus of internal railways.  In an interview with the BBC, Pascal Mailhos, the prefect of the Occitanie region of southwestern France, spoke favorably of the new security measures introduced by the state.  “Obviously, the action we are taking against illegal immigration goes beyond just our borders and requires a lot of coordination with our neighbors” and that “this new brigade add[s] another element in the mission against this type of criminality.”However, activists and volunteers have questioned the consequences of such measures, fearing they will create greater desperation on the part of migrants. As temperatures plummet and conditions deteriorate, many are concerned that such measures may cause migrants to take more drastic measures to find transport.In Calais, a port city located on France’s northern coast, there have been three hit-and-runs in as many weeks, where migrants have been found dead or injured on the side of the motorway. The most recent of these tragedies occurred on Tuesday.As Annie Gavrilescu, the regional head of France’s branch of Help Refugees, wrote in the Huffington Post, “there is nothing we can do when refugees become so desperate.” read more

Spanish Officials Attribute Increase of Youth Emigration to Moroccos Compulsory Military

Rabat – A Spanish official has slammed Morocco’s compulsory military service law for ringing alarm bells among Morocco’s youth.Adela Nieto, the official in charge of social affairs, minors, and equality in the Spanish enclave of Ceuta, said that Morocco’s proposed bill to introduce compulsory military service has left young Moroccans with no other choice but to cross into neighboring Spain.“The outflow of unaccompanied Moroccan minors has increased following the announcement of a law to establish compulsory military service,” she said. Read Also: Military Source: Moroccan Migrants Shot by Navy Were ‘Hidden Under Tarp’According to Moroccan outlet Le 360, the Spanish official claimed to have taken her data from “information” in the Spanish government’s records of recent attempts by young irregular Moroccan migrants to reach Spain.While the compulsory service bill has been introduced to the Moroccan parliament, it has not been passed. It may take longer than reported in news outlets, according to Government Spokesperson Mustapha El Khalfi.“There is a procedure to follow before the proposal is made into a law,” El Khalfi said. “[The procedure] will take several months…. There is a legislative duration. Technically, this law will most probably enter into force towards the second half of 2019.”Read Also: Law on Mandatory Military Service May Come into Force at the End of 2019In the meantime, the controversy that the bill created in Morocco coincided with reports of a sharp increase of emigration attempts by Moroccans, especially in the northern cities. The correlation may explain Nieto’s “confidence” about a causal relationship between the two occurrences.Nieto’s statement follows comments from another Spanish official on Moroccan emigration.During a working visit to Rabat earlier this week, Maria del Consuelo Rumi Ibanez, the Spanish state secretary for migration, told her Moroccan counterparts to “dismantle the myth of the European dream.”“Emigration is not the solution,” Ibanez said, adding that the choice to emigrate illegally is perilous and “often ends badly.” read more

Recognize celebrate and stand in solidarity with persons with albinism

Corbis Images/Patricia Willocq | People affected by albinism are often visually impaired and need special protection against the sun. They often develop skin cancer and suffer from social stigmatization, according to UNICEF. ​​​Discrimination against people with albinism varies from region to region. In the western world, including North America, Europe and Australia, it often consists of name-calling, teasing and bullying in childhood. Little information is available from other regions, including Asia, South America and the Pacific. However, the UN reveals that according to some reports, in China and other Asian countries, “children with albinism face abandonment and rejection by their families”.Persons with albinism in Africa often face severe forms of discrimination and violence, statistics show. In a region where most of the population is relatively dark-skinned, the greater contrast in the degree of pigmentation draws attention to people with albinism, making them more vulnerable.  Since 2010, there have been around 700 cases of attacks and killings of persons with albinism in 28 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. And those are only the reported cases. Marking the dayThe UN in New York is commemorating the day with a series of events, including on in which participants, including South African model Thando Hopa, will walk from the UN to Times Square where a billboard will display Albinism Day messaging.  There is also a side-event for persons with albinism during the 12th session of the Conference of States Parties to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which, among others, will feature Mwigulu Matonange, a child victim of mutilation in Tanzania who, in 2015, was assisted by the UN Fund for Victims of Torture in receiving a prosthetic arm. One young man with albinism, Lazarus Chigwandali, uses his music for change. Mr. Chigwandali has been featured in an award-winning documentary and has also met with the Ikponwosa Ero the UN Independent Expert on the enjoyment of human rights by persons with albinism. Together, they are standing strong for human rights. In some countries, according to UN figures, a majority of those persons with albinism die from skin cancer between the ages of 30 and 40. Although highly preventable when their right to health is maintained, these measures – including access to regular health checks, sunscreen, sunglasses and sun-protective clothing – are unavailable or inaccessible to them in a significant number of countries.Due to the lack of melanin in the eyes, persons with albinism also have permanent visual impairment that often leads to disabilities.Consequently, in the realm of development measures, they have been and are among those “left furthest behind.” Therefore, the UN stresses that persons with albinism need to be targeted for human rights interventions in the manner envisioned by the Sustainable Development Goals.DiscriminationPersons with albinism also face discrimination due to their skin colour; as such, they are often subject to multiple and intersecting discrimination on the grounds of both disability and colour. Additionally, they are often invisible in social and political arenas.While numbers vary, it is estimated that in North America and Europe one-in-every 17,000 to 20,000 people have some form of albinism. The condition is much more prevalent in sub-Saharan Africa, with estimates of one-in-1,400 people being affected in Tanzania and as high as one-in-1,000 reported for populations in Zimbabwe and other ethnic groups in Southern Africa, according to the UN. Each 13 June, the world is reminded that people with albinism deserve to have their rights to life and security protected. Persons with albinism routinely face ongoing hurdles and challenges to their human rights, ranging from stigma and discrimination, to barriers in health and education.Albinism is a rare, non-contagious, genetically inherited condition present at birth. It is found in both sexes, regardless of ethnicity, in all countries of the world. Heath challengesA lack of pigmentation, or melanin, in the hair, skin and eyes, causes vulnerability to the sun and bright lights, usually leaving people with albinism visually impaired and prone to developing skin cancer. Happy International albinism awareness day everyone !!!!! #StillStandingStrong— IkponwosaEro (@UnAlbinism) June 13, 2019 read more

Billy Strings Talks Tinfoil Turmoil Doc Watson Bluegrass Heavy Metal More

first_imgThe young six-string master reveals his heavy metal roots, psychedelic musical influences and reverence for the rich history of the blues and bluegrassDerek HalseyGRAMMYs Sep 30, 2018 – 12:48 pm In the early days of bluegrass music, the guitar was mostly used for rhythm purposes, with the distinct exception of an occasional G-run riff made famous by Lester Flatt beginning in the 1940s. The guitar was not the instrument of choice then when it came time to play solos.That began to change in the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s when musicians such as George Shuffler, Doc Watson, Clarence White, Dan Crary, Tony Rice and others opened up the possibilities of the guitar as a lead instrument. Their work featured mid-song solo breaks that were performed with beauty and fire, taste and precision. Since then, each following bluegrass generation has had their guitar heroes who have furthered the cause of the guitar in the genre. One of the current masters of the instrument is Billy Strings.We caught up with Strings right before the 2018 International Bluegrass Music Association Awards show held in Raleigh, NC, on Sept. 27. Strings was nominated for both the Emerging Artist of the Year nod as well as the coveted IBMA Guitarist of the Year Award. Strings feels very fortunate to have been nominated in the latter category with other great guitarists such as Kenny Smith, Josh Williams, Bryan Sutton and Molly Tuttle. Tuttle ended up winning the honor.How did you hear about the IBMA nomination?I pay attention to what’s going on over there, and I was watching the Livestream when they announced it and I couldn’t believe it, really.Well, why not? You’re rocking the six-string, man.Aw, yeah, I don’t know, man. Those other people that are on that list are [players] I look up to and respect highly. Bryan Sutton and Molly Tuttle and Kenny Smith – those are some great guitar players and I can’t say too much about what I do or whatever it is. It’s a great honor, it really is, just to even be mentioned in the same breath as those others.I remember you played Sugar Grove, Doc Watson’s other festival and that’s all I heard about, how good you were. That was a really special gig for me too, you know, cause I love Doc. I was raised on Doc’s music. My dad, he taught me a bunch of that stuff when I was growing up, all of that, all of those songs… Because I grew up in Michigan, I never got a chance to go to North Carolina and meet Doc. And when I got a little older, I started traveling, and eventually I made it to that Sugar Grove festival, and I got to meet Doc’s brother and his family. Everybody that was there was friends with him. It was a trip for me, because Doc, in my book, he’s huge.I know what you mean. And Doc’s brother, David, looks just like him.Yeah, he showed me Doc’s bolo knife. He had Doc’s pocketknife on him.There are a few musicians that have gone to heavy metal or punk rock, and have ended up in bluegrass. How did your musical background help you, and what are some similarities between these styles?When I started out playing music, I learned playing bluegrass when I was young and then eventually, when I was in middle school, I got an electric guitar and I wanted to start playing with people that were my age. I played with my dad and his friends, and I was just a little kid and they were adults. I never really made music with people that were like into the same stuff that I was into, like playing video games and s***.So I started playing in metal bands. That’s how I learned how to perform. I learned how to play music with my dad playing bluegrass and listening to Doc Watson. But I learned how, when I was on stage for the first few times, I was in a metal band and that kind of energy just stuck. Exclusive: Bluegrass Guitar Hero Billie Strings billy-strings-talks-tinfoil-turmoil-doc-watson-bluegrass-heavy-metal-more News Twitter Well, I know Doc is a hero to you, but are you hip to the evolution of the guitar in bluegrass music? When Bill Monroe lead the first-ever bluegrass band in the 1940s, guitars weren’t doing lead solos. Then, players like George Shuffler, Doc Watson and Clarence White began to break new guitar ground. Did those innovators have an influence on you as well?Yeah, of course. Tony Rice and Norman Blake and all those cats. I listened to all that stuff. Clarence White, of course. An icon. And Tony Rice, too, man. I never got the chance to see him play either.So how are you influenced by those guys and still create your own style?I think that’s what Bill Monroe would want, to take what he started and what he did with the banjo and the mandolin, fiddle and bass, and use bluegrass as the structure to help create your own sound. I think that’s what he did with bluegrass. He learned the blues from Arnold Shultz, and then he mixed it with the fiddle tunes and stuff because he knew. It’s like making fiddle tunes lonesome. That’s how he made bluegrass. It’s like the blues, and mixing the blues notes in there and making that stuff sound sad, and then having those fiddles just rip, just like on the old standard fiddle tunes. Beautiful stuff.Well, I’m fascinated by Arnold Shultz, who was a black guitarist, and I think he might have played fiddle, too, that Monroe knew and played with as a kid, yet there were no recordings ever made of him. That is both frustrating and amazing to think about.Oh man, I know. But I imagine that’s where Bill learned the blues and at least picked up some of that phrasing. You think bluegrass, that’s what I think of. It’s like fiddle tunes and then a mixture of really heartbreaking sound.You can hear that mixture on your new album, Turmoil & Tinfoil. How would you describe your music?I think that’s just it. It comes from everywhere. Like I said, I stand with bluegrass and I tend to listen to everything from Jimi Hendrix to psychedelic bands like the Grateful Dead and stuff like that. I’m just trying to go everywhere with it. I think it’s more of a progressive bluegrass sound with a psychedelic feel.Sounds good to me. What’s up next for you? I’m on the road 24-7, brother. I’m just touring and playing gigs and more and more people are coming out and I think that’s it, man. I’ve got my lifestyle. I just live on the road and these people, all my friends at the festival, that’s my family. I live out here on the road, man, but I accept that. I love it.Photo Gallery: Inside World Of Bluegrass, IBMA Awards & Festival in RaleighRead more Facebook Billy Strings Talks ‘Tinfoil & Turmoil,’ Doc Watson, Bluegrass, Heavy Metal & More Email last_img read more

Mayor kicks off compost experiment

first_imgAnchorage’s mayor Ethan Berkowitz got down and dirty on Monday. The mayor wants to encourage local gardening, and part of that plan is a new city composting program Berkowitz introduced at the Anchorage Municipality’s solid waste landfill in Eagle River.Mayor Berkowitz throwing in the first bucket of food scraps. SWS Director Mark Spafford is in the background. (Photo courtesy of SWS Recycling)“Well, this is dirt that came from compost. It’s delicious, nutritious, plants love this kind of stuff,” Berkowitz said as he pointed with mayoral pride to a pile of rich gardening soil heaped next to a landfill dumpster.“One of the inspirations we had for this.. we were over run by a stampede of Master Gardeners during the Master Gardeners’ conference, and they complained about the lack quality soil and the lack of composting facilities, and it inspired us to go back and see what we could do.” the mayor added.The city program is based on an exchange. Those who sign up for the composting trade get a five gallon bucket of completed compost for every bucket of organic kitchen waste that they take to the composting dumpster at the landfill.Carrot tops, cabbage leaves and coffee grounds are some of the basic composting material found in every kitchen.Travis Smith is the muni’s recycling coordinator, who was standing by at the compost kick-off.“If the short amount of outreach that been done so far has gotten positive feedback, so I think that people, the residents of Anchorage, have wanted a service like this. This is a small step into the world of compost again,” Smith said.The pilot program is based on the honor system – one bucket of compost for one bucket of kitchen refuse. If you add more to the big green dumpster at the Hiland Mt. road solid waste disposal site, then you can take back more compost.  Smith said if successful, the composting trade could expand. Berkowitz said the program does not rely on city tax dollars. Big Lake’s Susitna Organics has the contract to collect and compost the organic waste. The $8,800 contract is paid for with city recycling fees.To sign up for the composting program, contact Smith at SmithTJ@muni.orglast_img read more
