“It was a tremendous opportunity to inhabit another woman that was completely unlike any character I had played,” Lehman says in an interview. “I was really intrigued and challenged by this, and I really loved the chance to play something truly different.” Advertisement Login/Register With: Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Kristin Lehman in the Netflix series Altered Carbon (KATIE YU/NETFLIX) Facebook Advertisement As femme fatale Miriam Bancroft in Netflix’s big budget science fiction series Altered Carbon, Kristin Lehman will be unrecognizable to some fans.Her last Canadian series featured her as tough-talking, leather-jacketed detective Angie Flynn in CTV’s Motive, a spiritual successor to streetwise 1970s TV cops; less Angie Dickinson, more Karl Malden.In that show, Flynn’s prized possession was a 1984 Oldsmobile Hurst.

Later Ali was a notable absentee at the 19th Grand National Convention of the SLMC held on Saturday, March 19 at Palamunai, Ampara with the participation of the President and the Prime Minister.Ali was unhappy with his powers being clipped by the party leadership despite being the General Secretary. The Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) is expected to meet this week in an attempt to resolve a crisis in the party.SLMC General Secretary Hasen Ali said that a meeting is likely to take place this week during which his powers will be fully restored. However Hakeem saw the move as an attempt to ignite a coup against him and replace him as the party leader. Ali however says another meeting is scheduled to be held this week and he expects the situation to be resolved in the best interest of the party. (Colombo Gazette) He said he did not attend the convention as his powers had been reduced and he could not take some decisions on behalf of the party.He said that just three days before the convention a meeting was called and Hakeem assured that all the powers earlier in the hands of the party General Secretary will be restored.However by last weekend those powers were not restored and as a result Ali did not find it fitting to attend the convention in Ampara. Differences of opinion arose in the party recently after a letter was sent to party leader Rauff Hakeem urging him to change the party constitution. The letter was sent by some members of the SLMC High Command, the main decision making body of the SLMC.
The people of Sierra Leone “have shown their preference for the route of democracy as the foundation for sustainable peace,” the Secretary-General said in a message, delivered on his behalf by Oluyemi Adeniji, his Special Representative to the country, to the inauguration ceremony for the President and the opening of Parliament.“As their elected representatives, you must now, in your conduct and deliberations, uphold and sustain this new image of Sierra Leone,” he stressed. “This can only be done through good governance, responsible leadership, mutual respect and the politics of inclusion.”The Secretary-General paid tribute to the country for being able to hold elections “in a free, fair and transparent manner” just five months after the end of a brutal, decade-long civil war, and praised all the political leaders for spontaneously and immediately accepting the results.Yet the most urgent task now was to consolidate the newly found peace, Mr. Annan said, urging the new Government to take the lead in addressing the unfinished aspects of the peace process: the reintegration of ex-combatants; the effective restoration of State authority and basic services throughout the country; and the promotion of justice, human rights, national reconciliation and the rule of law.The Secretary-General also stressed the need to develop the capacity of the police and army so they can maintain security without the presence of the UN Mission in Sierra Leone (UNAMSIL).“Indeed, it is the interest of the people – and in particular their hopes for a rapid improvement in their socio-economic conditions – that must guide your approach to the issues before this Parliament,” the Secretary-General said. “The devastation that is so evident throughout the country requires that all Sierra Leoneans capable of rendering effective service be given the opportunity to do so, irrespective of their political persuasion.”
Video of Council meeting [6mins] The United Nations Security Council today unanimously approved the establishment of a new operation for troubled Burundi, where the UN will deploy up to 5,650 military personnel and help the central African nation with restoring peace and bringing about national reconciliation.Established for an initial period of six months, the UN Operation in Burundi (ONUB) will be deployed on1 June and include 200 military observers and 125 staff officers, a maximum of 120 civilian police personnel, as well as civilian personnel. The UN Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator Carolyn McAskie is awaiting appointment as Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative and chief of the mission.Praising the Council for opening “a new door in the Burundi peace process,” the Secretary-General called on all the people and leaders of country to take advantage of this “unique opportunity to further pursue national reconciliation and facilitate the preparation of national elections.”In a statement issued by his spokesman in New York, Mr. Annan called on the FNL (Rwasa) to sign a ceasefire agreement and join the peace process without further delay. He encouraged donor countries to respond generously and to complement the efforts of the new peacekeeping operation.Through the resolution adopted today, the Council decided that ONUB would initially be composed of forces from the African Union’s (AU) existing African Mission in Burundi (AMIB) and would closely cooperate and share military information with the UN Organization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUC), particularly in monitoring cross-border movements of armed elements and arms trafficking.The Council authorized ONUB to use “all necessary means” to carry out its mandate, which, along with helping the transitional Government consolidate Burundi’s recent political progress, will include ensuring respect for ceasefire agreements through monitoring their implementation and investigating their violations, promoting the re-establishment of confidence between the Burundian forces present, monitoring and providing security at their pre-disarmament assembly sites, and contributing to the dismantling of militias as called for in the ceasefire agreements.Ahead of elections scheduled for 31 October, the mission would support the process of disarming and disbanding militia groups as well as collecting, securing and destroying weapons. It would also help to train the Burundi National Police. Other ONUB components would work to promote the rule of law, coordinate assistance in support of the elections, and report on human rights abuses.
“The violence resulted in the loss of human lives and an attack by Young Patriots on the vehicle of the High Representative for Elections, Mr. Gérard Stoudmann,” Mr. Annan’s spokesman said today in a statement, referring to the group of young supporters of President Laurent Gbagbo that has also been blamed for the January destruction of United Nations offices during violent protests in the western town of Guiglo.In condemning such acts of violence, the statement added that they were in breach of the agreements reached among Ivorian parties, including those made at the meeting of high officials Mr. Annan convened in the country’s capital, Yamoussoukro, on 5 July. Mr. Annan urged all Ivorian parties to extend their full cooperation to Prime Minister Charles Konan Banny, as the Government presses ahead with the simultaneous implementation of the identification and disarmament processes that aim to end the civil strife that has kept the country divided between a rebel-held north and a Government-controlled south since 2002.
Sophocles’ Antigone may be more than 2,500 years old, but its relevance to the #MeToo and civil rights movements of today makes it resonate as strongly now as when it was first written.The new mainstage production from Brock University’s Department of Dramatic Arts (DART) tells the story of a woman rebelling against patriarchy and the establishment — a woman who is willing to sacrifice everything to stand up for what she believes is right.Antigone’s tragic protest against King Creon’s prohibition of mourning her dead brother makes the audience question what choice we have when our personal beliefs conflict with the laws of the state. The play also examines the effects that gender inequality and unbridled power have on society.DART faculty member Mike Griffin, who adapted and directs the production that will run at the Marilyn I. Walker Theatre, said the classic Greek tragedy was the perfect fit for the first mainstage performance of the 2018-19 season.“Antigone is one of the oldest examples of a powerful, independent female character in theatre and literature,” he said. “It is eerily unfortunate that this ancient world, in which she was born, has many similarities to the one we currently live in, and through that I think the play really speaks to today.“I also think it’s a fantastic challenge for my students to dive into a story that is really valued as such an influential, classical text.”Adam Rappold, Assistant Professor in the Department of Classics, worked with Griffin and the cast to dissect the Greek text and highlight major themes of the play pertinent to today’s audiences.“It is a work which manages to be, at once, both bewitchingly alien while still also familiar enough that it could have been ripped from today’s headlines,” Rappold said. “More pressingly for our current moment, it is likely the voice and personality of Antigone herself who continues to speak to audiences — a powerful and decidedly female scream of rage against iniquity and oppression, which, even after more than two centuries, refuses to be silenced.”With a contemporary approach to an ancient story, this production blends classical text with movement and image-based storytelling and explores a rich score of ensemble choral voices. The adaptation explores a shattered world touched by both contemporary and ancient times through a collage of poetry and physical theatre.“My vision is to paint Antigone as a strong woman, with the caveat that a strong woman should not be a stereotype but a norm that we are very familiar with,” Griffin said. “Hopefully her presence in standing up for what she believes in is something that can potentially propel audiences forward to feel confident in thinking that ‘when injustice happens to me, I will stand up for what’s right.’”The set and costumes for Antigone were designed by Brock Dramatic Arts Instructor Kelly Wolf, lighting was designed by Chris Malkowski and sound designed by Visual Arts Media Resource Co-ordinator Max Holten-Anderson (BMus ’10).The production showcases the talents of students in the DART undergraduate program. Student performers include Catherine Tait, Tristan Holmes, Alexandra Chubaty Boychuk, Matt Burt, Taj-Alexander Crozier, Tyler Simpson, Colin Williams, Mae Smith, Grace Martins, Samantha Rideout, Katie Cole, Diego Blanco, Heather Janser and James Dengate.Other student crew members include: Avery Delaney (Dresser), Peter Herbert (Stage Carpenter), Molly Lacey (Dresser), Sid Malcolm (Sound Operator), Heidi Nickel (Lighting Operator) and Jackson Wagner (Props Runner).Antigone runs Oct. 26 and Oct. 27 at 7:30 p.m., Oct. 28 at 2 p.m., and Nov. 2 and 3 at 7:30 p.m. There will be a high school matinee on Nov. 2 at 11:30 a.m. The evening performance on Nov. 2 will include an American Sign Language interpreter for members of the deaf and hard-of-hearing community.The production will run at the Marilyn I. Walker Theatre at Brock’s Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts in downtown St. Catharines.Tickets for the show are $18 for adults and $15 for students and seniors. There’s also a $10 group rate and a $5 eyeGo high school program rate available. Tickets are available through the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre box office at 905-688-0722 or on the PAC website.
The Golden State Warriors and their fans are (rightly) focused on celebrating a championship right now. But with their 105-97 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night, the Warriors put the finishing touches on a run that was no ordinary title-winning season. The Warriors’ 2014-15 campaign should go down as one of the greatest single seasons in league history.Golden State’s journey started with the unrealized potential of previous years. The 2013 team overachieved under second-year head coach Mark Jackson, but an ousting in the first round of the 2014 playoffs and a lack of harmony between Jackson and management sent Golden State looking for new leadership going into this season. After Steve Kerr spurned the New York Knicks1In retrospect, an outstanding decision! to take the Warriors coaching job and the smoke cleared on the rest of the offseason’s transactions, our numbers said the Warriors had the most talented team in basketball.But our crystal ball didn’t foresee how dominant the Warriors would be. During the regular season, Golden State crushed their competition in a way that hadn’t been seen since the Michael Jordan-era Chicago Bulls. Golden State won 67 games, tied for the sixth-most in league history, and its schedule-adjusted points-per-game margin (as measured by Basketball-Reference.com’s Simple Rating System, also known as SRS) ranked seventh all-time. The team became just the fourth in NBA history to outperform the league average by 6 points of efficiency on one side of the ball — in the Warriors’ case, offense — and by 4 points on the other. Moreover, the team’s Elo rating at the end of the regular season was second only to that of the record-setting 1996 Bulls.After those 67 wins, though, there were lingering concerns about Golden State’s ability to win in the postseason.Unlike other dominating squads from the past, the Warriors were relative greenhorns on the postseason stage — in a sport in which playoff experience does seem to have a tangible effect. Their 288 dynasty points2A measure of playoff experience. over the preceding five seasons3Leading up to 2015. were the fewest ever by a team with an SRS of +8 or better and tied the 2014 Clippers for the second-fewest by a +6.5 SRS team. Out of the 95 historical teams with anywhere near as much regular-season success as the Warriors had in 2014-15, Golden State owned (at best) the fourth-worst postseason pedigree over the half-decade beforehand.Relatedly, while the Warriors dominated our power ratings all season long, their talent level was less proven than that of their stronger peers atop the all-time SRS list. For instance, while the aggregated multiyear Statistical Plus/Minus talent projection was an absurd +10.9 for members of the 1996 Bulls, +10.4 for the 1997 Bulls and +9.2 for the 1992 Bulls, Golden State’s +7.5 rating was more akin to the 2009 Cavaliers’ +7.1 mark. Simply put, the Warriors hadn’t been good enough for long enough to generate a higher talent rating, which might also suggest the potential for postseason regression.Not to mention that the Warriors also played a fast-paced, 3-point heavy style that traditionalists were still not convinced could win an NBA championship. While there’s little evidence that such a team is more prone to slumps, no team that led the league in pace had won a title since the 1972 Lakers, and no team had ever won after using more than 29 percent of their field-goal attempts on 3-pointers. The NBA’s conventional wisdom was that those types of teams couldn’t win a title because their supposedly gimmicky strengths would surely abandon them when the pressure was on.The Warriors hopefully put those myths to rest with a championship run that counts among the best of the past three decades. It wasn’t without its moments of concern. Golden State trailed 2 games to 1 against both Memphis and Cleveland. But on the whole, the Warriors’ postseason performance ranks eighth among champions since 1984 after accounting for their scoring margin, the SRS ratings of their opponents and the location and leverage index of each game:If we don’t adjust for leverage and therefore have the ability to measure playoff SRS going back to 1950, Golden State’s 2015 title run ranks 16th among all 66 NBA champions in that span. By that measure, the Warriors might not pass the 1971 Bucks or 1996 Bulls — both of whom followed up the two best regular seasons of all time by SRS with two of the three best playoff runs ever4The other belongs to the inconsistent 2001 Lakers. — on the list of best single-season teams ever, and it might even open up the door for the 1986 Celtics to slip ahead of them on the basis of a superior postseason performance.(Although, it’s worth noting that Golden State wrapped up the playoffs with the second-highest Elo rating on record and that they played in a league with nearly twice as many teams as Milwaukee did in 1971. But I digress.)Half the fun of these GOAT arguments is splitting hairs with different stats, but the most important thing to realize is that these Warriors firmly belong in that conversation. This might be the start of something even bigger for the franchise, or it could be a stand-alone championship. But for at least one season, we just witnessed a team that could legitimately be compared to Jordan’s Bulls, with hardly any hyperbole necessary.For fans of basketball history on this championship morning-after, that’s worth appreciating and celebrating.
MAYO AND CLARE are reporting snow tonight, and from what we can see in these photos our readers sent in, it’s falling thick and fast.Earlier today, the Road Safety Authority urged motorists to take care on the roads as an Atlantic storm is due to hit the country tonight – and snow makes it all the more important that people stay vigilant on the roads.Met Éireann have put the country on ‘orange alert‘, saying the worst weather is due to hit at around 3am. Expect higher tides, heavy rain, a threat of flooding, and gales.Stay safe out there!Is it snowing where you are? Send your pics to email@example.com
EVERY COUNTY THINKS they have the biggest potholes in the land but we think this one in west Donegal might be the winner.Local election candidate Micheal Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig went for a bit of a paddle in one of the potholes on a road in Arland this week (before the storm, we should add) to show just how bad the situation is for the families living in the area.He told TheJournal.ie that the road is “almost impassible” for the ten families living along it.“This road is in a shocking and unacceptable state and it is not alone.”Donegal County Council classifies this road as a private road and Mac Giolla Easbuig has been told that there is no way it will see any repairs in the foreseeable future.He is calling for the re-introduction of the Local Improvement Scheme (LIS) which provided for improvement work on non-public roads.“Much is rightly said about the need to overcome the isolation of rural communities,” Mac Giolla Easbuig continued. “The sense of isolation and of being forgotten about is palpable in communities like this when they cannot even have proper access to their homes.”See: Biggest Pothole Ever Pic of the Day>More: We thought that earlier pothole was big but then we saw this one…>

Fessenheim : une rénovation possible pour un coût “absorbable”Quelques semaines après que l’Autorité de sûreté nucléaire (ASN) a recommandé le renforcement de la dalle sur laquelle le réacteur n°1 de la centrale nucléaire de Fessenheim a été construit (voir notre article), les responsables du site affirment que les travaux préconisés sont tout à fait réalisables, et ce pour un “coût largement absorbable”.Le mois dernier, l’Autorité de sûreté nucléaire (ASN) rendait son avis sur la sûreté de la centrale nucléaire de Fessenheim, la plus ancienne du pays. L’Autorité donnait alors son feu vert pour prolonger de dix ans l’exploitation de la centrale, à condition toutefois de réaliser certains travaux de rénovation. Parmi eux, le renforcement du radier du réacteur n°1, la dalle en béton sur laquelle il a été construit.Mercredi, le directeur du site Thierry Rosso, a assuré lors d’une conférence de presse rapportée par 20minutes.fr, que “la faisabilité technique des travaux est réelle”. Pour lui, la rénovation du site alsacien est tout à fait réalisable “à un coût largementabsorbable”. Et d’ajouter que “l’ensemble des prescriptions de l’ASN (…) ne remet pas en cause l’intérêt de poursuivre l’exploitation du réacteur”.Une installation plus résistanteLes travaux de rénovation de la centrale de Fessenheim porteront uniquement sur le réacteur n°1. Il s’agira de consolider le radier de l’installation afin d’améliorer sa résistance en cas de percement de la cuve. EDF devra présenter ses propositions de travaux d’ici à la fin de l’année. “Fin 2009, l’ASN nous avait déjà demandé de travailler sur la question. Nous avons des scénarios qu’il s’agit maintenant de rendre robustes”, a expliqué Thierry Rosso avant d’assurer : “Tous les moyens sont actuellement mis en œuvre à la centrale de Fessenheim pour parvenir à des conditions de sécurité maximales”.La centrale de Fessenheim suscite de vives inquiétudes chez les écologistes et les riverains du site, ravivées par la catastrophe de Fukushima. Ce site nucléaire, le plus ancien du pays, a été édifié dans une zone à risques sismiques.Le 25 août 2011 à 20:29 • Maxime Lambert
All season long, The Exorcist was building up to this. Even back in October when the real exorcism was supposed to start, there was a sense that it was just a precursor to something bigger. Those suspicions were confirmed at midseason when Angela was revealed to be the grown up Regan MacNeil from the original movie. Now, after two weeks of genuinely scary, well-paced episodes, we finally got to see the end of the Rance family’s story.Geena Davis as the possessed Angela continues to be scary for the second week in a row. This episode picks up right at the end of last week’s, with Father Tomas bursting into the Rance home to save the family. It doesn’t go so well for him. Angela throws him against the wall, knocking him out. With Tomas out of the way, Angela is free to keep tormenting her family. Inside his head, he’s forced to confront his inner demons, which take the form of Marcus.The real Marcus finds himself tied to a chair by the Friars of the Ascension. Also, we get some good news: Bennett is alive! As the only character who didn’t do at least one incredibly stupid thing all season (I’m overlooking his trust in the possessed cardinal), I would have been pissed if he didn’t survive. After torturing both Marcus and Bennett for a while, Brother Simon summons a demon to possess one of them and leaves to kill the pope.Alfonso Herrera and Ben Daniels in the “Chapter Ten: Three Rooms” season finale (Credit: Jean Whiteside/FOX)This episode centered on these three drawn-out confrontations and handled them all very well. It helped that this episode didn’t skimp on the gruesome visuals. Whereas before, the series had to slowly mete out its gore, lest we become desensitized to it, they went all out for the finale. An especially cringe-inducing scene was when Angela began to tear Henry’s arms off unless Casey bashed Kat’s kneecap in with a hammer. The image of Kat doing it herself won’t leave my head anytime soon.It turns out, though, that Angela wasn’t fully integrated with the demon. That was definitely a smart choice on the writers’ part as it saved her scenes from becoming just a torture-fest. Inside her head, she has locked herself in a room, and Pazuzu is trying to get in. Robert Emmet Lunney’s demon face isn’t quite as scary as the one that still haunts our dreams from the 1973 film, but he gets the job done.Meanwhile, Tomas is forced to confront all of his sins and admit that he has been selfish and dishonest all season long. Overcoming his inner demons allows him to realize his true calling as an exorcist and he regains consciousness. Now, he has the power to fight the demon in Angela, using his crucifix to throw her across the room. The display inspires the Rance family to start praying together, which reaches the real Angela locked in a room inside her mind. As Tomas fights the demon, Angela has the strength to overpower Pazuzu in her head. Yes, it’s corny but ultimately effective. Tomas can finally exorcise the demon for good, but not before it snaps Angela’s back in half, paralyzing her.Guest star Robert Emmet Lunney and Geena Davis in THE EXORCIST Credit: Jean Whiteside/FOX)Meanwhile, Maria Walters finally makes herself useful. After Brother Simon had summoned the demon, it chose to possess her. That surprises the guards, distracting them long enough for Marcus and Bennett to break free and fight off the guards. Man, there were a lot of great fight scenes in this episode. Marcus arrives at the Pope’s parade, just in time to stop Simon from killing the Pope. How does he stop him? Well, it wouldn’t be a horror series if it didn’t make us squirm at least a little. Marcus cuts Simon’s throat with a crucifix.The episode even ends well. As Marcus is about to skip town, Tomas convinces him to stay and train him to be an exorcist for real. The Rance family moves out of Chicago, and the now-paralyzed Angela finally feels safe. Meanwhile, the possessed Maria Walters plans the demons’ next move. We learn that killing the Pope wasn’t the ultimate goal. They’re after something bigger.It was a great way to end the first season of a show like this. The main story threads are wrapped up in a satisfying way. The door is left open for the series to continue, but it doesn’t end on a cliffhanger. As much as I’d like another season of Marcus and Tomas fighting demons, I’ll still be satisfied with the story as it is if we don’t. As a whole, the show had its slow episodes and minor disappointments, but overall, it was a fun horror series. It had decent scares throughout and saved it’s biggest frights for the very end. And hey, it was a better sequel to The Exorcist than any of the movies that have come out since 1973. That alone is remarkable.
British Airways Tests VR Entertainment on Select First-Class FlightsGeek Pick: HP Reverb Is Clear-Eyed Virtual Reality Virtual Reality gaming has been getting a lot of press in the last couple of years thanks to peripherals like the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR. Despite being impressive technologically, these devices have failed to appeal to a mass market. While VR gaming hasn’t been a hit among home consumers, its future in arcades seems much brighter.Last week, Bandai Namco opened a facility called VR Zone Shinjuku in Tokyo. This place is both a traditional arcade experience and an amusement park — albeit with a VR twist. A lot of the games at VR Zone Shinjuku were previously shown at other events, but it also has its fair share of new attractions. Some of these include Evangelion VR: The Throne of Souls, Mario Kart Arcade GP VR, Hanechari, and Dragon Ball VR.One of the great things about arcades from back in the day is how they gave you an experience you couldn’t get at home. Some of the most memorable arcade games let players ride in replica cars, motorcycles, and airplanes. Many of the games shown at VR Zone Shinjuku have this same philosophy in mind. However, since users get to play inside of a three-dimensional VR space, the experience is much more immersive than even arcade games of the past.Will arcades ultimately help keep VR gaming alive? This might be the case in Japan where arcades are still viable. In the West, however, it’s not so clear. Over on this side of the world, arcades are all but extinct. While it is entirely possible VR games could help revive arcades in the West, it’s still a long shot. VR gaming is already a tough sell because of how difficult it is to advertise. After all, one needs to actually experience VR gaming first-hand in order to understand it. The same challenge applies to getting people off their butts to play VR titles in arcades. But I don’t think it’s entirely impossible either.Hopefully, we’ll get something like VR Zone Shinjiku in the states. Even a small trial run would be great. I’m not the biggest fan of VR gaming, but even I see how VR gaming and arcades perfectly compliment each other.If you want to know more about VR Zone Shinjuku, make sure to read Forbes Contributor Ollie Barder’s excellent write up about his experience.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Migrants rest on the deck of the NGO Proactiva Open Arms boat on 2 July. Photo: AFPA new shipwreck off the Libyan coast has left 63 people missing in the latest disaster to hit migrants seeking to cross the Mediterranean.The group are feared drowned after the inflatable boat they were on sank, a spokesman for Libya’s navy General Ayoub Kacem told AFP, citing eyewitness accounts from survivors.Kacem said that 41 people wearing life jackets were rescued.“The coast guards did not find bodies in the area,” he said.According to survivors, there were 104 people on board the vessel, which sank off Garaboulli, east of Tripoli.In the last few months, this area has become the main point of departure for inflatable boats overloaded with migrants seeking to make the perilous crossing of the Mediterranean to Italy.In addition to the 41 people rescued, a Libyan coastguard boat returned to Tripoli Monday with another 235 migrants, including 54 infants and 29 women, rescued in two other operations in the same area.The boat’s return to shore was delayed 24 hours due to a breakdown, Kacem said.‘Desperation’Including the latest shipwreck, some 170 migrants have gone missing in the Mediterranean between Friday and Sunday.On Friday, three babies died off the coast of Libya while 100 people remained missing in another Mediterranean shipwreck.Just 16 were rescued, all young men, while the missing included two babies and three children under the age of 12.More than 1,000 people have died in the Mediterranean so far this year, according to International Organization for Migration figures.“There is an alarming increase in deaths at sea off Libya Coast,” said IOM Libya Chief of Mission Othman Belbeisi.“Smugglers are exploiting the desperation of migrants to leave before there are further crackdowns on Mediterranean crossings by Europe,” he said in a statement.Last week, Kacem warned of an increase in departures ahead of a feared closure of European borders, after Rome closed Italian ports to NGO rescue ships.More than 1,000 migrants have been rescued or intercepted by Libyan coastguards since Friday.Once they are back on dry land, the migrants are transferred by Libyan authorities to detention centers.IOM’s director general, William Lacy Swing, said he was travelling to Tripoli this week to “see firsthand the conditions of migrants who have been rescued as well as those returned to shore by the Libya Coast Guard.”“IOM is determined to ensure that the human rights of all migrants are respected as together we all make efforts to stop the people smuggling trade, which is so exploitative of migrants,” he said in a statement.Libya situationLibya is a key transit point for thousands of African migrants trying to reach European shores.When Moamer Kadhafi ran Libya, before he was overthrown and killed in 2011, thousands of migrants would cross Libya’s long southern border in a bid to make it to the coast and cross the Mediterranean to Europe.The situation has deteriorated since Kadhafi’s fall, with traffickers exploiting the chaos that engulfed the country and tens of thousands of migrants seeking to make the crossing to Italy, which is 300 kilometers from the Libyan coast.Hundreds of migrants die every year on the journey.On Friday, after weeks of high tensions over the issue, the European Union’s 28 members hammered out a hard-fought deal to tackle migration and avert a crisis that has threatened the very fabric of the bloc.At a summit in Brussels, leaders agreed to consider setting up “disembarkation platforms” outside the EU, most likely in North Africa, in a bid to discourage migrants and refugees boarding EU-bound smuggler boats.But analysts warn that the accord is more of a face-saving move for leaders on the front line of the migration crisis, but details are unclear and the resource needed to really tackle the issue appear lacking.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be just like the Dark Knight trilogy, as it has been given a PG-13 rating by the Motion Picture Association of America.Director Zack Snyder’s much-anticipated movie – starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman – was handed the age classification due to “its intense sequences of violence and action throughout, and some sensuality”, reported Entertainment Weekly.Most superhero movies released these days adhere to the PG-13 rating, including Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight films, as do major blockbusters like The Hunger Games and Fast & Furious.Meanwhile, Snyder recently described Batman v Superman… as a direct follow-up to Man of Steel. The director has also confirmed, however, that Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader will get more screentime than Henry Cavill’s Superman.
An Exhibition titled “108 – The Power of 9” was recently held at Shridharani Gallery.Sabia, the artist derives and renews her creative energy from nature and she endows it to her depicted characters – squirrels, birds, deer. Nature, in Sabia’s work becomes that invisible blotting paper which absorbs the imbalances that Indian society creates for its women. Her works of art have a child-like innocence and simplicity, her motifs and symbols are very pure and generally revolve around ‘Nature’ and ‘Women’.

Hindus have traditionally revered 108 as the holy number – it is believed that its root lies in the number 9 which is indestructible. Sabia has also tried to find the real meaning of the number 108 – by coupling it with nature and to great effect. The exhibition showed the aesthetic advantage of using 108 as the inspiration and nature as the anchor. The exhibition had two series – her drawings (on rice paper) that were 108 in number and the other series contained her elaborate paintings, which had 108 numbers of elements. These elements are numerous – from semul flowers to squirrels, to deers to birds, 108, but they all blend well in nature. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveSabia has always been exquisite in bringing nature onto her canvases. Her flat colours including the Indian yellow, raw sienna, her crimsons, her indigos have brought to life the real landscape of India. Her Ramachandran touch has made it sure that wherever these canvases will hang, they will bring the outdoor hope, indoors with them into the urban spaces from where gardens have now escaped. Sabia who has also recorded nature and its creatures in other mediums shall be the balm and therapy of our overcrowded horizons.

rankings (Source: AP) Top News On a course that had always got the better of him in recent years in-form English golfer Tommy Fleetwood hit a faultless 5-under 66 to win the French Open by one shot ahead of Peter Uihlein of the United States on Sunday Fleetwood had five birdies and no bogeys to finish at 12 under while Uihlein just failed to force a playoff after making a late charge “I can’t believe how close he got” Fleetwood said “On 14 I tapped in and I was four clear and finishing with four pars round here I didn’t think I’d be scratching the win by a shot” The 26-year-old Fleetwood has been in good form recently finishing fourth at the US Open last month This was his third European Tour win and second of the year after clinching the prestigious Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship in January ahead of Dustin Johnson and Pablo Larrazabal “I played great today felt comfy again and it’s always great to test your game and test what you work on every day under the ultimate pressure “My fiancee is my manager my caddie’s one of my best mates in the world” Fleetwood said “I have really strong relationships … when you enjoy doing your job that’s a massive positive” The victory moved Fleetwood to the top of the Race to Dubai rankings Fleetwood failed to make the cut before in four previous appearances at the Golf National course _ which is hosting next year’s Ryder Cup But his performance was arguably not that surprising given his seven top 10 finishes in 13 events this year He became the first Englishman to win here since Graeme Storm in 2007 Uihlein the overnight co-leader was seeking his second career win and posted a 3-under 68 The American made a rough start with bogeys on holes 4 and 5 But he then recovered superbly sinking four birdies from Nos 11 to 17 to give himself a chance of catching Fleetwood Ultimately Uihlein fell short managing only par on the 18th “The only thing I probably would try and redo is maybe be a little bit more aggressive on 15 16 It was just a bad tee shot on 18 so I didn’t give myself much of a chance” Uihlein said “I just wanted to try and at least make him earn it All I was trying to do was just put a little pressure on him I didn’t want him to feel like he could bogey a couple of holes and still be OK” Still Uihlein did manage to qualify for the British Open starting July 20 at Royal Birkdale along with Frenchman Mike Lorenzo-Vera and Sweden’s Alexander Bjork “It was a good week” Uihlein said “It’s a good event to finish runner-up and it gets me into The Open and it moves me up the Race to Dubai rankings a little bit” Royal Birkdale is close to the Merseyside region of northwest England which is where Fleetwood grew up as a passionate supporter of Liverpool-based soccer club Everton Playing there will feel very much like a homecoming for Fleetwood “It’s going to be a massive week for me I’m going to be playing in front of crowds that I never have before and people that you have grown up with” Fleetwood said “It’s going to be an amazing experience from start to finish” Thorbjorn Olesen of Denmark had eight birdies in a 6-under 65 while Lorenzo-Vera shot 66 as both charged up the leaderboard to finish in a tie for third with Bjork (71) at 8 under Bjork the overnight co-leader with Uihlein could only manage par on the day with three bogeys canceling out his three birdies Thomas Pieters of Belgium and Englishman Andy Sullivan _ one shot back from the co-leaders overnight along with Fleetwood _ had a bad day with 3-over 74s Pieters had three double bogeys and Sullivan one double bogey
