AUDAIN PRIZE FOR VISUAL ART RAISED TO 100000 TO BOOST PROFILE OF

first_imgAdvertisement Advertisement The 2019 Audain Prize ceremony will take place on Sept. 23 at a location yet to be finalized.Recipients will be selected by an independent jury of curators and artists.Meant to raise profile of B.C. artAudain says the decision to increase the award amount was made to raise the profile of art in B.C., and he wants the province’s “wonderful visual artists” to become better known.“Recently, I have spent some time in Quebec and found that their cultural heroes, such as Céline Dion and Jean-Paul Riopelle, are well-known throughout the length and breadth of that province. I don’t see why we shouldn’t have that level of pride in B.C.,” Audain says in a news release.Some of the world’s best contemporary artists are in British Columbia, says Audain, yet he wonders if Wall’s large-scale, back-lit cibachrome photographs or Graham’s “Vancouver School” of distinctive, photography-based multi-media works are known outside Vancouver.“Maybe they have heard of Emily Carr, but otherwise I doubt it,” he says.Travel grants for studentsIn addition to the $100,000 Audain Prize for Visual Art, the Audain Foundation plans to fund five $7,500 travel grants for students in university-level visual arts programs.More information will be made available on these grants soon, the release says.Since the Audain Foundation supporting visual arts was established in 1997 it says grants worth more than $120 million have been awarded.The Audain Art Museum, which now manages the Audain Prize, opened in Whistler in 2016, housing a large portion of the collection Audain and his wife Yoshiko Karasawa amassed over the past 40 years.The couple’s world-class Northwest Coast art collection is on permanent display, and the museum also features galleries for special exhibitions of Canadian and international art.THE CANADIAN PRESS Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment The main hallway of the Audain Art Museum in Whistler, B.C.

Solitary confinement a form of torture for Indigenous mentally ill inmates advocates

first_imgLucy Scholey APTN NewsLawrence DaSilva says he suffers post-traumatic stress disorder from spending 587 consecutive days alone in a “kennel cage.”The former inmate, who served 19 years in federal prison for kidnapping and carjacking a Toronto lawyer and his wife, spent a total 2,588 days in solitary confinement. For 23 hours of every day in segregation, he said he didn’t have access to showers, mail, the canteen, phone calls, reading material or a lawyer.“If I wasn’t strong enough, I would have killed myself a long time ago,” he said. “I survived it, but many people didn’t.”On Monday, DaSilva joined civil liberties groups and the John Howard Society in renewing calls to end the practice of solitary confinement, which disproportionately affects Indigenous federal inmates and those struggling with mental illness.Though the federal government has put forward Bill C-56, which aims to curb prison segregation, these groups say it doesn’t go far enough.“Prisoners continue to spend days, weeks and months in small cells without meaningful human contact,” said Paul Champ, a director with the B.C. Civil Liberties Association. “They continue to suffer from severe physical and psychological harm because of that isolation and some of them will be driven to take their lives.”In January, a B.C. Supreme Court justice ruled indefinite solitary confinement is unconstitutional because it discriminates against people with disabilities, those struggling with mental illness and Indigenous inmates.The federal government is appealing the decision, arguing it needs clarity on the matter.“The government of Canada is fighting in the courts for the right to put mentally ill and Indigenous people in a torture box,” said Michael Bryant, executive director of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association.A separate Ontario Superior Court ruling in December found federal segregation beyond five days is unconstitutional, but the practice generally does not violate constitutional rights. The Canadian Civil Liberties Association is appealing parts of that ruling, arguing it doesn’t go far enough.Currently, an inmate could be segregated for the safety of himself, prison staff or other inmates.But the civil liberties groups say the problem is the process.Under “disciplinary” segregation, an inmate found to have been involved in wrongdoing could be sent to solitary confinement for a set amount of time and with legal counsel. But through “administrative” segregation, an inmate could be deemed a security risk and segregated for an indefinite period of time – without access to a lawyer.“Your rights are illusory,” DaSilva said. “You’re stuck.”Bill C-56 would limit administrative segregation to 21 days, shortened to a 15-day cap 18 months after the legislation takes effect. A United Nations expert on torture has called for all countries to ban solitary confinement “except in very exceptional circumstances” and no more than 15 days, as any longer can cause lasting mental damage.“It’s terrible,” said DaSilva. “The helplessness that you feel based on why you are there, regardless if you have a mental illness or not, these situations can rapidly develop and turn into mental health situations.”The civil liberties groups are calling for a 15-day max in administrative segregation, but a total ban for inmates who are struggling with mental illness.They are also calling for the federal government to implement recommendations from the inquest into Ashley Smith’s death after the 19-year-old strangled herself in an Ontario prison segregation cell.The groups also want an independent adjudicator to oversee administrative segregation cases. While Bill C-56 proposes an independent process, Catherine Latimer of the John Howard Society said it would only make recommendations. The punishment would ultimately be up to Correctional Service Canada.“The federal government needs to put in place an administrative segregation regime that respects the charter,” she said.In a report last year, the Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) found Indigenous women make up half of all federal segregation placements.NWAC president Francyne Joe said this staggering figure – Indigenous women represent just five per cent of the overall Canadian population – means there are not enough culturally appropriate alternatives to federal segregation. She wants to see some sort of tool monitoring why these women wind up in prison.Meanwhile the civil liberties groups said they have reached out to Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale and the Prime Minister’s Office on the matter, but were told the issue is before the courts.APTN has reached out to Goodale’s office for comment, but has yet to hear back.lscholey@aptn.calast_img read more

European stock exchanges agree to 30 billion merger

European stock exchanges agree to $30 billion merger Brokers work in the trading room of the stock market in Frankfurt, Germany, Wednesday, March 16, 2016. Deutsche Boerse and London stock exchange plan to merge. (AP Photo/Michael Probst) by David McHugh, The Associated Press Posted Mar 16, 2016 7:33 am MDT Last Updated Mar 16, 2016 at 2:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FRANKFURT – The London Stock Exchange and Germany’s Deutsche Boerse say they are merging in an all-stock deal that will leave the German side with a majority in a company worth about $30 billion.The exchange operators are calling it a merger of equals that will accelerate their growth and offer customers more products and services — and said the deal is going ahead even if Britain votes to leave the European Union.They expect to complete the combination by the first quarter of 2017. The two companies together are worth about $30 billion based on their stock market value Wednesday.The deal makes sense even if British voters decide to leave the European Union in a referendum June 23, the two sides said, but conceded there are risks to its business from a potential British exit. It said the tie-up would benefit from European Union efforts to create a single capital market and expand the cross-border use of stock and bond markets to finance companies, a project known as capital markets union. They said that a vote to leave would put the capital markets union project at risk.The companies “believe that the merger is well positioned to serve global customers irrespective of the outcome of the vote” although the outcome “might well affect the volume or nature of the business carried out by the combined group.”The owner of the New York Stock Exchange said March 1 that it was considering a competing bid for the London exchange. Intercontinental Exchange, Inc., which owns the NYSE, had no comment on the proposed LSE-Deutsche Boerse deal. Another U.S. rival, CME Group Inc., also declined to comment.In the merger deal, a U.K.-based holding company will be set up to acquire the London Stock Exchange Group PLC and Frankfurt-based Deutsche Boerse AG. When the deal is done, Deutsche Boerse shareholders will hold 54.4 per cent of the holding company and Deutsche Bank CEO Karsten Kengeter will be chief executive. LSE chief executive Xavier Rolet is to step down on completion of the deal and serve as an advisor for up to one year.Both companies will name an equal number of board directors in the new company; LSE chairman Donald Brydon will serve as board chair.The combined company would have headquarters in both London and Frankfurt.The deal needs approval from regulators in the European Union, the U.S. and Russia. The London Stock Exchange said Russian approval was needed because it owns Exactpro, a firm with offices in Russia specializing in quality assurance for exchanges and financial organizations. read more

Matrix launches UVision advanced mine lighting combining LED and UV

first_imgMatrix Design Group, LLC has announced an advanced technology mine lighting product, UVision, which combines LED and safe spectrum UV for the first time in a mine-duty lighting system. “This patent-pending technology not only delivers 50% brighter LED light, but the custom-developed LED array better illuminates reflective materials on clothing, helmets, machinery, storage boxes, cables and other marked mine items for higher visibility and greater contrast; dramatically improving the safety benefits of reflective materials.”Historically, reflective materials have relied on standard mine lighting for visibility. “Not until UVision has a light been developed to make them truly stand out, whether viewed directly or through Matrix’s camera systems. In particular, when installed on mobile equipment, UVision provides the operator with additional peripheral and enhanced direct illumination which could improve operating efficiency and provide the operator with an additional tool to help avoid collisions.”UVision lights fit standard round enclosures, making staff retraining and equipment restocking unnecessary. “Matrix also offers UVision lighting in its similar XP enclosure (pending MSHA-approval) and non-XP housing. Moreover, UVision, which can be integrated with machine control systems to provide enhanced functionality like automatic red reverse lighting, offers all these elements for about the same cost as traditional LED lights. UVision is not just brighter, its better.”last_img read more

Mikakos promoted to health minister in a 50 per cent female cabinet

first_imgA newly re-elected Premier Daniel Andrews has announced a cabinet which consists of an equal number of men and women.In a historic move, half of ministry positions are going to women with Victoria acquiring its second female attorney-general as Jill Hennessy is being named chief law officer, also the first woman to hold this position in a Victorian Labor government.In the new cabinet, Ms Hennessy’s position as health minister is being assumed by former minister for families and children Jenny Mikakos, who will face the task to implement the Labor government’s ambitious hospital building program.Minister Mikakos’ elevation to cabinet marks the most significant and senior appointment of a member of parliament from the Greek community in Victorian history.The health portfolio is a multi-billion-dollar portfolio responsible for the operation and delivery of hospitals, health services and ambulances right around Victoria.It is also responsible for delivering major reforms such as voluntary assisted dying. Minister Mikakos, a commercial and tax lawyer before entering politics, will also have to take on the ambulance services portfolio and oversee the roll-out of one of Labor’s big election promises in the free school dental program.“It is an enormous honour to be installed as the Victorian Minister for Health. There’s nothing more important than the good health of Victorian families, world-class hospitals that patients can count on and an ambulance service that ensures Victorians get the very best care when they need it the most,” Minister Mikakos said.“I’ll be wasting no time getting to work and giving our hard-working doctors, nurses and paramedics the support they need to make sure Victoria’s health system remains one of the very best in the world.”Aside from health, families and education, the new-look Cabinet is clearly focused on infrastructure delivery with Jacinta Allan the lead minister in an all-female transport team.The new additions to the Andrews Labor government include Northern Victorian MP Jaclyn Symes who has yet to be confirmed as winning the fifth spot in her Upper House region. She joins Dandenong MP Gabrielle Williams and elected Williamstown MP Melissa Horne as female MPs joining Cabinet for the first time. Their presence raises the number of women in the cabinet to 11, that is equal to the male ministers.“Today my colleagues have delivered something that has never been achieved in the history of our state – 50 per cent of cabinet are women,” the Premier said in his announcement.“There is an equality of gender in our state’s most important decision-making body,” he stressed.While several new faces are joining the ministry, another Greek MP, Philip Dalidakis, who had been serving as Minister for Trade and Investment, Minister for Innovation and the Digital Economy and Minister for Small Business, departs.The former Minister is expected to remain in Parliament as a Labor member for the southern metropolitan region and has been appointed chairman of the Public Accounts and Estimates Committee.“I am deeply grateful to Philip Dalidakis for the work he has done,” the Premier said.“Philip has a very bright future and I think he will have opportunities to contribute in the future,” he added.Dalidakis was appointed minister as a replacement for Adem Somyurek, a factional power-broker who was booted from cabinet in 2015 due to bullying allegations by his then chief of staff, Dimity Paul. Mr Somyurek is now returning to the frontbench, although it is not clear in which ministry he will serve, as the government has delayed announcing ministers’ portfolios until later in the week.

SpiceJet Launches Discount Offer for Passengers Carrying Only HandBaggage

first_imgBudget airline SpiceJet on Tuesday launched ‘Hand Baggage Only’ fares, a discount offer for those passengers who only carry hand-baggage. The ‘Hand Baggage Only’ fare will be available on most direct domestic flights (including via flights), with minimum 30 days’ advance purchase. International and connecting flights are not included.”Travellers with check-in baggage can still check in their 15 kg baggage for free using our normal SpiceSaver and other fares. SpiceJet is not charging for checked baggage for those who select the normal fares that exist today,” the airline said.”With the introduction of this fare, we are passing on the savings of carrying less weight to the most price sensitive passengers who have hand baggage only, and are incentivizing more passengers to book early and travel light. This is a win-win-win as those passengers will pay for only the services they consume, airlines can save on fuel costs from the lower weight, and the environment will benefit from lower fuel burn,” said Sanjiv Kapoor, Chief Operating Officer, SpiceJet.”Historically travellers with no check-in luggage have indirectly subsidized those passengers who have luggage to check-in,” he added.Under the new fare, passengers who carry only hand baggages and who book at least 30 days in advance, will pay ₹200/- less than the normal SpiceSaver fare per one-way flight.For a round trip, the discount can be as high as ₹1,000.Hand-baggage allowance remains the same as before: one handbag up to 7kg per passenger, plus a standard sized shoulder laptop bag or ladies purse.For those who book these fares but later decide to check in luggage, a fee of ₹500 for up to 10kg, and ₹750 for upto 15kg, will be payable at the airport during check-in.Bookings for ‘Hand Baggage Only’ fares can be made on SpiceJet’s website, at its Airport Ticket Officers, and through most travel agents.Bookings will soon also be available on most major online travel portals. These fares will not initially be available through the company’s call centre or through its mobile app.last_img read more

Ellis Move To Harris County Commissioners Court Triggers ThreeWay Succession Fight

first_img X Photos courtesy of their respective websites.(L-R) State Representatives Senfronia Thompson and Borris Miles, and former Houston City Controller Ronald GreenHarris County Democratic politics are undergoing a major shift. Last month, party leaders named State Senator Rodney Ellis as their choice to replace the late El Franco Lee on County Commissioners Court. That set off a scramble to pick a new candidate for Senate District 13, the district Ellis has represented for more than a quarter century.Houston Public Media’s Coverage of Election 2016Under Texas law, the task of picking Ellis’ replacement on the November ballot will fall to the 94 Democratic precinct chairs in his senate district. Three candidates are vying for the spot. They include State Representative Senfronia Thompson, State Representative Borris Miles, and former Houston City Controller Ronald Green.Michael Adams, interim chair of the political science department at Texas Southern University, says Thompson and Miles are the favorites going into the contest. “Certainly Senfronia Thompson has a very long history of service in the Texas State Legislature, and to many people, she is considered to be the dean,” he says.While Thompson has the edge in experience, Miles holds a geographic advantage. “More than 63 of the precinct judges are in actually State Representative Borris Miles’ [district],” Adams says.District 13 runs across Harris County and into the northeastern corner of Fort Bend. No Republican candidate has registered for the district. That means whomever the precinct chairs choose when they meet July 16 will succeed Ellis in the Senate next January. If either Thompson or Miles wins the nomination fight, that will set off a fresh race, to decide who will represent the open seat in the state House of Representatives.
