first_imgPope Francis the first religious leader to be picked as PETA’s Person of the Year.Pope Francis was chosen for asking the world’s 1.2 billion Roman Catholics and all other citizens of the world to reject human domination over God’s creation, treat animals with kindness, and respect the environment — something PETA views as a call to turn toward a simple, plant-based diet, given the now well-established role of animal agriculture in climate change.In his 2015 treatise, Laudato si’, Pope Francis talked about the importance of treating animals with kindness, writing, “Every act of cruelty towards any creature is ‘contrary to human dignity’” and “We are not God. … [W]e must forcefully reject the notion that our being created in God’s image and given dominion over the earth justifies absolute domination over other creatures.”Pope Francis is also known for his focus on environmental stewardship — a concern that PETA shares through its vegan advocacy. According to the United Nations, a global shift toward vegan eating is necessary for slowing down the most dangerous effects of climate change, including the extinction of wildlife.“With more than a billion Catholics worldwide, Pope Francis’ animal-friendly teachings have a massive audience,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk, an atheist. “His Holiness is PETA’s Person of the Year for spreading the message of kindness to all, regardless of their religion or species.”last_img read more

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Login/Register With: Advertisement Advertisement Bailey said with Vanguard, organizers found there was overlap between the films that were in that section and those in Special Presentations and Midnight Madness. Among the Vanguard movies at TIFF 2016 was Colossal, starring Anne Hathaway. The Canadian production, due in theatres in April of this year, also stars Jason Sudeikis. Hathaway plays Gloria, who discovers that a monster currently terrorizing Seoul might somehow be connected to her.“We just wanted to be a bit clearer about the identity of the sections,” Bailey said.City to City has featured filmmakers from cities including Tel Aviv, Istanbul and Lagos, Nigeria. The Toronto International Film Festival says it remains committed to art-house and international cinema as it cuts two programs that featured such fare and reduces the overall number of titles it will screen for this year’s edition by 20 per cent.On Thursday, TIFF announced it will trim the overall number of films in the 2017 lineup and scrap the Vanguard and City to City sections.The Vanguard program featured “dark and edgy films that twist genre and art house conventions together in a new way.” City to City showcased filmmakers living and working in a selected city, regardless of where their films are set. “We’re committed to art-house cinema, we’re committed to international film, we’re a global film festival. We have programmers who are looking for movies all over the world. That will continue,” Cameron Bailey, artistic director of TIFF, said in a phone interview from Los Angeles.“The trims will be for the most part across the board but we are definitely committed to maintaining a very strong international lineup. That’s one of the main things our audience comes to us for, so that will continue.” “Now I think it’s time to integrate that programming into the festival as a whole,” said Bailey.The festival spent a long time thinking through and mapping out the changes, which are in response to feedback from audiences, the industry and the media, he added.“What we’ve heard is that people love the selection but it can be overwhelming, if you’re trying to do the festival fully, especially as a working professional,” Bailey said.“It’s really hard to cover everything that we have and we thought we can find a way to bring a tighter curation to the festival, to really go after the films we love the most and to make it a little bit easier to navigate.”TIFF also announced it’s cutting two venues from its festival — the Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema and the Isabel Bader Theatre. Bailey said the move will bring things closer to the area around the festival’s main downtown hub, the TIFF Bell Lightbox.Bailey also said the festival isn’t planning on making any significant new investments in other areas or making any more cuts.“What we are going to make sure we do is not reduce the volume of available seats very much,” he said. “We’re going to try to keep as many seats as possible open for people.“So although we’ll be cutting the number of films, there’s not a direct correlation with how much less revenue is going to be coming in or how much expenses are going to be reduced.”Overall, Bailey said organizers are addressing a “refinement of the festival that was necessary.”“What I think people will see in September is a stronger festival with films that they know will be some of the best films of the year, some that will go on to awards season — as we saw this past year — and it will just be easier to navigate.”This year’s festival will run Sept. 7 to 17.

Rabat – The citizens of Fez offered an historic welcome to King Mohammed VI on Tuesday afternoon.The Moroccan monarch chaired on Tuesday at the Al Qaraouiyine Mosque in Fez the inauguration ceremony of the Higher Council of the Mohammed VI Foundation for African Ulema.As soon as he exited the mosque, known for hosting the oldest university in the world, passersby and small business owners lined up to greet him and shower him with their respect and love. The Moroccan King stopped to greet many of his countrymen and take pictures with them.This is first time since his coronation that King Mohammed VI took a tour of the narrow alleyways of the old medina. He made sure to enquire about the advancement of the project he launched in 2013 to renovate and restore over 27 century-old sites that were in state of collapse.The project has breathed new life into the old city and has given it a new facelift, with the goal of eventually enabling it to attract more tourists in the future and contribute to social and economic development.The old city of Fez, known as the spiritual capital of the country, was listed as a World Heritage Site in 1981 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).Historians and tourism experts say it may be one of the best tourist destinations worldwide. In addition to being the capital of Moroccan cuisine and handicraft, Fez is home to the world’s oldest university, in which famous historical personalities have lived and studied. Among those is Muslim historiographer Ibn Khaldun, considered to be among the most prominent figures of modern sociology, historiography, and economics.In addition, Fez has over 35 kilometers of walls, and it is the largest medieval city in the world. It is also home to what it is known locally as Maristan, considered to be the first psychiatric facility in the world. read more

Rabat – Australian police arrested a man who stabbed a 41-year-old woman in the back using a large butcher’s knife in Hotel CBD in Sydney on August 13.“At this point, it seems that the attack was not due to provocation, but we remain open-minded as we move forward in the investigation,” commented Gavin Wood, a police spokesman. According to Agence France Press (AFP), the perpetrator, running in the street, tried to attack several other people while shouting “Allahu Akbar.” The police reported collecting several testimonies from eyewitnesses who said the suspect shouted “Allahu Akbar.” However, police are yet to determine the motives behind the attack. A Tweet by Andrew Denney shows the man jumping on the roof of a car screaming “Allahu Akbar” (“God is the greatest”) and “shoot me in the f*** head!”Just witnessed incredible bravery from members of the public and ⁦@FRNSW⁩ officers chasing down a man on a stabbing rampage in Sydney’s CBD.

He is expected to be charged with murder and serious assault charges.“If it becomes a terrorist incident, obviously there will be other charges in relation to that; it’s an evolving investigation,” Mick Fuller, the police commissioner said. read more

Speaking to CNN at UN Headquarters in New York, the Secretary-General noted that the United States-led Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) and the military on the ground have been extremely careful.”Anytime one is forced to fight in built-up areas, it is a very tricky and a very dangerous situation because you want to protect civilians; at the same time you want to get to those who have guns and are shooting at you,” Mr. Annan said.”I hope they will succeed in working out a political settlement” without having to fight their way into Fallujah, he added.

Many of our members would be retired and such an unwarranted threat against them especially by the Board is entirely unforgivable.“They haven’t paid a penny since the 7 August,” chairperson of the Board Jim Murray told this website, noting that they are now separate from the GAA and are essentially a private entity.Read: Casement Park gets green light for redevelopment into 38,000 all-seater stadium >last_img read more

Parole is for is not probation and is for those who committed serious crimes such as severe violence, sexual assault, and organized gang activity.Residents against the proposed lease argue Grossmont High is just one of four high schools nearby with thousands of kids attending. People walking to the facility would have to walk through residential streets to get to the parole office and with the lack of access to public transportation, sidewalks, and parking, there’s no room to expand. center_img Updated: 7:22 PM KUSI Newsroom Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

first_imgVivaldi 1.5: Delta updates, Philips Hue support by Martin Brinkmann on November 22, 2016 in Internet – Last Update: May 22, 2018 – 28 commentsVivaldi 1.5 is the newest version of the web browser based on Chromium code and developed by former Opera Software employees.The Vivaldi browser has been out for a while as a stable browser — since April 2016 to be precise — and has received several updates — Vivaldi 1.1, Vivaldi 1.2, Vivaldi 1.3 and Vivaldi 1.4 — in recent months.Vivaldi 1.5, the latest version of the browser, is already available for download at the official website.Users of the web browser may get update notifications when they start the browser the next time. This enables them to update the program automatically using built-in mechanics.Vivaldi 1.5The biggest feature of Vivaldi 1.5 is also one that is pretty niche if you ask me. The web browser ships with support for Philips Hue color lights.Basically, what it allows you to do is to link the browser to the Philips Hue system to change the color of the linked lights based on the color scheme of the websites you visit in the browser.You find an option to enable Philips Hue in the Vivaldi preferences under Themes.Tab dragging improvementsWe reviewed Vivaldi’s improved tab dragging functionality previously already. The new feature enables you to use tab dragging like it is supposed to. Drag a single tab, multiple selected tabs, or a tab stack to another browser window or a new window directly using only the mouse.You had to right-click on the tab selection previously for some of the operations. That option is still available, so if you prefer that option you can still make use of it.Delta UpdatesVivaldi 1.5 ships with support for delta updates. The change reduces the size of stable and snapshot updates of the browser.You had to download the full browser previously when updates were released. This is no longer the case as only changed bits are now downloaded and installed.This should improve the update process on slow or unreliable connections significantly.Reader View accessibilityReader View is not a new feature in Vivaldi, but its accessibility has been improved in version 1.5 of the browser.The feature improves the readability of articles on web pages by removing all the clutter that surrounds it.Clutter in this regard means site navigation, header, sidebar and footer content, as well as advertisement and other dynamic content.Automatic screenshots when taking notesVivaldi supports note taking, either by right-clicking on a text selection on a web page and selecting the add as note feature, or by adding notes manually using panels.Vivaldi 1.5 adds a screenshot of the pages you take notes from automatically. This new functionality adds a visual component to the note.Please note that the screenshot captures the visible part of the page and not all of it.Closing WordsVivaldi 1.5 improves the web browser in several regards. Improved tab dragging is probably the major new feature in the release, while support for Philip Hue lights a first but with niche appeal.In other news, Vivaldi is preparing to launch a mobile version of the browser and the anticipated email client in 2017.Advertisementlast_img read more

The SAVI applicator can provide important advantages for women with early-stage breast cancer.The Center of Excellence designation recognizes these facilities’ dedication to education, training and experience in APBI. To qualify, physicians, medical physicists and clinical staff were required to complete a comprehensive training and education program to demonstrate proficiency in delivering radiation therapy with SAVI. The facilities have also expressed a commitment to patient education, advocacy and awareness of advanced breast cancer treatments. The commitment of these centers and physicians to offer the SAVI applicator extends the benefits of breast conservation therapy to a larger group of women and results in improved clinical outcomes. Breast conservation therapy includes lumpectomy – the surgical removal of the cancerous tissue within the breast plus tissue immediately around the tumor – followed by radiation. This approach is an alternative to mastectomy, which removes the entire breast and is often followed by breast reconstruction. The SAVI applicator delivers a form of radiation therapy known as breast brachytherapy. This approach, which targets the tumor site from inside the breast, is becoming a more widely used alternative to traditional radiation. Breast brachytherapy typically involves two treatments per day for only five days. This shorter time frame makes brachytherapy far more convenient than traditional, external-beam radiation, which is delivered five times a week and takes six or seven weeks.

first_imgRelated posts:Libertarian candidate Otto Guevara could become Costa Rica’s next president Johnny Araya holds onto lead in latest UCR presidential poll Live Costa Rica election results Why Costa Rica will have a runoff election this weekend The ruling National Liberation Party (PLN) seems to be bending the truth about candidate Johnny Araya’s chances of winning the upcoming Feb. 2 presidential election in a first-round vote.On Friday, Araya’s campaign sent out a press release claiming that the most recent elections poll, published by University of Costa Rica weekly newspaper Semanario Universidad, showed the candidate likely within reach of a first-round victory, which requires 40 percent of the vote.In the press release, campaign chief Antonio Álvarez Desanti said the poll results showed that – among decided voters – Araya was close to the 40 percent support required to win without a runoff.The University of Costa Rica’s poll, released on Tuesday, did show Araya in first place, but with only 20.4 percent support, ahead of his nearest rival José María Villalta, of the Broad Front Party, at 15.3 percent.“These results confirm that with the organization and the size of PLN, we are guaranteed a triumph in the first round,” Álvarez said in the statement.Under the most generous reading of “decided voters,” Araya would still fall short of 40 percent. In Semanario’s poll a number of respondents did not pick a candidate, did not respond or said they were not voting. These respondents totaled 35.7 percent of the survey. Excluding these numbers, Araya’s support increases to 27.7 percent.Similarly, Villalta’s support would increase to 20.9 percent. Semanario Universidad’s poll indicated a high probability of a runoff between these two candidates. Araya’s camp rightly noted that the poll predicted a runoff victory over Villalta or third-place candidate Otto Guevara.If no candidate succeeds on getting more than 40 percent of the vote on Feb. 2, the top two candidates go to a runoff in April. This has only happened once, in 2002.A January CID-Gallup poll showed Araya with 39 percent support, within reach of the runoff-breaking threshold. La Nación published a January poll that showed Araya in a virtual three-way tie with Villalta and Guevara.This isn’t the first time critics have accused the Araya campaign of playing fast and loose. On Tuesday night, Facebook users criticized a photo Araya posted of a campaign rally in Guanacaste’s provincial capital of Liberia. Araya critics accused the candidate of using Photoshop to exaggerate the number of supporters who turned out for the rally. Facebook Commentslast_img read more
