Festival Celebrates Aquaculture Industry

first_imgLocal music and farmed seafood will be featured at the 13th annual Aquaculture Harvest Festival in Yarmouth on Saturday, Oct. 2. This year’s event will be held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. behind Rudders Seafood Restaurant, 96 Water St. “This festival provides an opportunity for people in Yarmouth and the surrounding communities to learn more about our aquaculture industry and to sample some of the products grown here in Nova Scotia,” said Sterling Belliveau, Minister of Fisheries and Aquaculture. “Aquaculture is a $58-million industry that helps create good jobs and grow the economy in rural, coastal communities in the province.” The festival features live entertainment; an oyster shucking demonstration; an aquaculture touch tank with oysters, mussels, scallops, and clams; a finfish tank with locally farmed trout and Atlantic salmon; and face painting. People attending can talk to aquaculture growers and sample local products such as salmon fish cakes, seaweed, trout and halibut. Admission and food samples are free. Mr. Belliveau will present a bursary for $1,000 to Yarmouth Consolidated Memorial High School, which will be awarded to a graduating student pursuing a program that could lead to a career in aquaculture. On Thursday, Sept. 30, staff will discuss careers in aquaculture with grades 10-12 students. Atlantic salmon, oysters, mussels, trout, seaweed, clams, Arctic char and Atlantic halibut are farmed in Nova Scotia. There are 315 aquaculture sites in the province.last_img read more

Target plans to open 9 more stores in Canada by the end

TORONTO — Target plans on opening nine more stores in Canada this year.The U.S.-based retailer says it will open two locations in Mississauga, Ont., and one store each in Toronto, Ottawa and Barrie, Ont.Stores will also be added in Edmonton, Victoria, Winnipeg and Candiac, Que.Target says it will have a total of 133 locations in Canada by the end of the year.The retailer has faced high expansion costs and disappointing sales since its highly anticipated arrival in Canada last year.Shoppers have complained about near-empty shelves and notably higher prices than at U.S. Target stores.Last week, the retailer said it would offer some of its Canadian customers a year of free credit monitoring after a massive security breach at its U.S. stores put confidential details into the hands of thieves.Target emailed customers saying it believed their information may have been taken if they visited U.S. Target stores between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15.However, the message was also sent to at least some Target Canada customers who weren’t in the United States over the affected period.Target said an investigation found the personal information could have included the names, addresses, emails and phone numbers of some Canadians.Unlike affected U.S. customers, who had payment data from their debit and credit cards taken, the Canadian information is limited to contact information, the company said.Target has said the number of Canadians affected is estimated to be “well under” 1% of the total, which represents less than 700,000 customers.On Wednesday, the U.S. Justice Department announced it plans on tracking down the hackers involved in the Target data breach. read more

Toronto Vancouver at risk of correction TD warns after January home sales

TORONTO — Surging sales in the piping hot real estate markets of Toronto and Vancouver last month prompted one of Canada’s big banks to express concerns Tuesday that the cities may be at risk of a home price correction.The Canadian Real Estate Association reported Tuesday that sales of existing homes rose by eight per cent in January compared to a year ago, while the national average home price soared 17 per cent.But it was the sales figures for Vancouver and Toronto that drew considerable notice from economists.The average sale price in greater Vancouver rose 32.3 per cent year-over-year to nearly $1.1 million, while in greater Toronto it climbed 14.2 per cent to $631,092.The Multiple Listing Service benchmark price — a figure that CREA says is more representative of the market — rose to $775,300 in great Vancouver, an increase of roughly 21 per cent compared to January 2015. In greater Toronto, the benchmark price climbed roughly 11 per cent year-over-year to $578,400.TD economist Diana Petramala said some of the strength in the Toronto and Vancouver markets may have been bolstered by buyers looking to get into the market before new mortgage down payment rules took effect Monday.New federal regulations require larger down payments on homes that cost between $500,000 and $1 million.New mortgage rules for homes over $500,000 go into effect, as Liberals aim to limit housing risksFor foreign buyers, Vancouver housing is a bargain as city becomes a ‘U.S. dollar play’“While we continue to believe that things just can’t get any hotter, markets in B.C. and Ontario continue to prove us wrong,” Petramala said in a note to clients.Petramala said although foreign investment and immigration are likely to provide support to the Toronto and Vancouver markets in the months ahead, she raised concerns about whether sky-high home prices in those regions are sustainable over the long term.“Every month of double-digit home price growth raises the risk of a deeper home price correction down the road,” Petramala said.A correction is defined as a drop in value of at least 10 per cent.Every month of double-digit home price growth raises the risk of a deeper home price correction down the roadThe price gains in Vancouver and Toronto fuelled a rise in Canada’s national average home price in January to $470,297, CREA said.When excluding Ontario and British Columbia, however, the average sale price actually edged lower by 0.3 per cent from a year ago to $286,911.Regional differences stemming from the impact of the oil price shock are likely to continue throughout this year, said BMO economist Robert Kavcic.“Those markets exposed to oil prices are correcting,” he said in a note.“The uber-tight big-two cities are benefiting from lower interest rates than we otherwise would have seen had oil prices not fallen, while everyone else is scattered in between.”On a month-to-month, seasonally adjusted basis, CREA says national home sales rose 0.5 per cent in January, compared to December of last year.Meanwhile, the number of new listings on MLS declined by 4.9 per cent in January compared to December.“Tighter mortgage regulations that take effect in February may shrink the pool of prospective homebuyers who qualify for mortgage financing and cause national sales activity to ease in the months ahead,” CREA chief economist Gregory Klump said in a statement. read more

Energy East pause puts Liberal argument on environment and pipelines in question

OTTAWA — Federal government policies tying environmental impacts to regulatory approval of pipelines are sending investors fleeing for more certain ground, critics and pipeline proponents said Friday.The comments come a day after TransCanada Corp., said it was asking the National Energy Board to suspend its application for the 4,500-kilometre Energy East pipeline between Alberta and New Brunswick for one month while it figures out if the NEB’s environmental assessment of the line will affect the economic argument for the project.The NEB last month announced the outline of its new review process for Energy East and said for the first time the environmental assessment will include an examination of the greenhouse gas emissions created at all stages, from oil extraction to end use.Canada West Foundation CEO Martha Hall Findlay, a former Liberal MP, said everyone wants to cut greenhouse emissions, but the government is not going to prove it can cut emissions and still build pipelines by “moving the goal posts in the middle of a major investment decision.”She said her organization is supportive of putting a price on carbon as a means to cut emissions, but using the regulatory process to try and do it as well is the wrong policy.Assessing the upstream and downstream emissions will not “make or break” the Energy East project, but it adds one more layer of delay to a project that has already been riddled with them, she added.TransCanada had to redo its NEB application after the first attempt was deemed too complicated and then last fall the first assessment was suddenly halted and then shut down after complaints about conflicts of interest for some of the people chosen to make the decision.The new process is the one that now adds upstream and downstream emissions to the table and has taken an entire year to get going again.“My guess is this is the straw that broke the camel’s back,” said Germain Belzile, a senior associate researcher at the Montreal Economic Institute.Belzile said he is very skeptical TransCanada will ever restart its application unless there are some major changes to the NEB process in the next month.“I think it proves that even if the federal government says (pipelines can be built sustainably) what they are doing is creating an environment in which it is almost impossible to get a project approved in a timely manner.” he said.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said any big project has to balance jobs and economic growth against protecting the environment.“So it’s up to companies and proponents to figure out the best path forward, but I think taking time to reflect and making sure it gets done right ends up saving time and energy in the long run,” he told reporters during a stop at a festival in St-Tite, Que., on Friday.Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr was not available to speak about the issue Friday. He was in his Winnipeg constituency office, where he had a pre-scheduled meeting with NEB head Peter Watson.The meeting was not intended to deal with Energy East but the matter was discussed briefly, a federal source said.Carr is expected to unveil his government’s overhaul of the regulatory process, including environmental assessments, later this fall.His spokesman, Alexandre Deslongchamps, said in a statement TransCanada’s decision is their own to make, but didn’t respond when asked whether Ottawa will reconsider the upcoming assessment plan in lieu of the decision to put the project on hold.Last November, the Trudeau government approved two pipeline expansions to Enbridge’s Line 3 and Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain line. Construction began in August on the Line 3 expansion between Alberta and Wisconsin, but opposition to Trans Mountain from First Nations and the new B.C. government make its completion uncertain.Hall Findlay said the big test for the Liberal assertion that protecting the environment doesn’t mean no new pipelines will be if Trans Mountain actually gets built.Conservative natural resources critic Shannon Stubbs says Liberal energy policies are scaring investors and putting national unity at risk.“This is just the latest example of energy proponents and investors in Canada not being able to do business because of the changes that the Liberals have brought in,” said Stubbs.She added the government’s policies have led to a drop in investment in the energy sector in the last two years she says is the equivalent of losing three-quarters of Ontario’s auto manufacturing industry and all of Quebec’s aerospace industry.“Rightfully that would be a national crisis,” said Stubbs. “We think the federal government should make the energy sector, the long term viability and sustainability of the sector, and oil and gas workers a priority.”-follow @mrabson on Twitter. read more

Burst pipe floods Erie Beach

While snow was falling in Port Dover earlier this week, the town’s popular Erie Beach Hotel had to deal with a flood.A burst pipe in the iconic building on 19 Walker Street has caused significant damage and forced the closure of a number of rooms within the restaurant.Water from the attic reached both floors. Cleanup crews have been at the location for several days.Half of the ceiling in the Cove Room has been ripped up and the Rose Room has been completely gutted.The Terrace Room located upstairs was open Wednesday and will be again on Thursday.No dollar estimate was given on the damage incurred.“We’re not even close to that yet,” said employee Maddie Butler.Owner Andrew Schneider was busy with cleanup crews on Wednesday, she said.Butler said they are hoping to open a portion of the Cove Room on Friday, but that all hinges on what kind of damage to the building workers discover.“I can’t put an official word out for that quite yet but the Terrace Room is open,” she noted.The pipe malfunction occurred just a few years after the Cove Room underwent significant updates.“It’s been redone in the last five years, so that’s why this is so disappointing,” Butler said.No one was hurt, and employees are glad they can at least serve the public upstairs.The Erie Beach is keeping the public updated on the cleanup efforts via its Facebook page at facebook.com/Erie-Beach-Hotel-269471859730600/.jrobinson@postmedia.com read more

Security Council backs Afghanistans efforts to battle lawlessness illicit drug trade

Following a daylong open discussion – during which representatives of more than 30 countries took the floor after senior UN officials had briefed the Council on security issues and current efforts to battle the trafficking of illegal narcotics – the 15-member body issued a wide-ranging statement in which reaffirmed its strong commitment “to the sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity and national unity of Afghanistan.”Read out by the Council’s President, Ambassador Sergey Lavrov of the Russian Federation, the statement expressed the Council’s concern over the increased number of attacks against international and local humanitarian personnel, coalition forces, the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) and Afghan Transitional Administration targets by the Taliban and other rebel elements.The Council also voiced its concern over other security threats, including from illicit drug trafficking, and stressed the need to improve the security situation in the provinces and further extend the administration’s authority throughout the country. “Against this backdrop, the Council underlines the importance of accelerating the comprehensive reform of Afghanistan’s security sector, including the disarmament, demobilization and reintegration of former combatants,” the statement said.Focusing specifically on the drug trade, the statement said the Council recognized the links between illicit drug trafficking and terrorism, as well as other forms of crime and the challenges posed by these activities inside Afghanistan as well as to the “transit, neighbouring and other states affected by the trafficking of drugs from Afghanistan.”The 15-nation body stressed that security would be enhanced by continued coordinated efforts to combat the production of illicit drugs in Afghanistan as well as to interdict narco-trafficking beyond its borders. “The Council recognizes that the effort to counter the problem of drugs originating in Afghanistan will only be effective when it is integrated into the wider context of reconstruction and development programmes in the country.”Concerned that the volume of illegal opium production inside Afghanistan has returned to former high levels, the Council gave its support to the commitment by the Afghan Transitional Administration to eliminate drug production by 2013, and its efforts to implement the decrees prohibiting the cultivation, production and processing of the opium poppy, including illicit drug trafficking and drug abuse.The Council welcomed the “significant” contribution by the Vienna-based UN Office on Drugs and Crime (ODC) and noted that its work inside Afghanistan was restrained by the lack of general stability and security in the opium growing areas of that country. The Council further welcomed the projects underway in individual countries to counter the threat of drugs in Afghanistan, and underscored the pressing need to achieve quickly a “significant and sustainable decrease” in Afghan opium production. read more

Cop Woman nabbed for drugs demands them back is rearrested

first_imgSALEM, N.H. (WSVN) – A New Hampshire woman was arrested twice in a span of five hours after she returned to a local police station to try to get back drugs that had been placed into evidence.According to the Salem, NH police department, the suspect — Emily Morin, 26 of Concord, NH — was arrested for possession of a controlled drug following a shoplifting incident at Macy’s Department Store.Police determined that the woman’s license and registration was suspended.

Tonal shrinks the gym to the size of a TV

first_img Digital weights for a digital worldUnlike traditional weight rooms at your local muscle factory, Tonal doesn’t need physical weights. All it needs is electricity. The machine uses an electromagnetic resistance engine to generate the opposing force needed for the cables to give your biceps a rough time. Aly Orady, the CEO and brains behind Tonal, used his engineering background to come up with the concept of a digital weight-based system after losing 70 pounds and quitting his tech job.”I needed to figure out a way to keep the weight off and make working out part of my job”, says Orady, who built the first prototype in his apartment roughly three years ago. He says Tonal is the first machine of its type to use this type digital weights rather than old fashioned metal plates and gravity. The machine can create up to 200 pounds of resistance using electricity.  TONAL Tonal’s built-in trainer works better than your fitness appThe hardware was just one part of the equation. He knew he Tonal also needed the level of guidance you get from a personal trainer at the gym. If you’ve ever used a coaching app on your phone like Sweat or Sworkit, it’s pretty much the same concept, but on a much larger screen: The coach demos the move you’re about to do, and then you join in. But Tonal takes it to the next level, because the machine knows when you’re engaging the cables, it can count reps for you, and the coach actually waits for you to finish your reps before moving on to the next exercise. The machine may not be able to correct your form, like a real-life trainer would, but it felt a lot more interactive than just following along with a demo video on my phone.The training system comes with eight different coaches — who are elite personal trainers in real life — to guide you through workouts to bulk up, trim down or get stronger or all of the above.tonal-digital-strength-trainingThe system comes with eight different real-life coaches to choose from. TONAL But not before giving you a fitness assessment. The machine had me do a few different exercises to determine how much I should be lifting to achieve my goal of getting stronger. This already seemed like a better approach than the weight guessing game I played on the rare occasion that I did make it into the gym. With my results on the screen, I was ready to do my workout. Real-time data to guide youMost of the exercises I did were weight-based for upper body, legs and core (check out the video if you want to see the types of exercises), but Tonal also gives you the option to mix it up by adding different attachments to the arms like a bar or rope to target different muscles. And because the machine has real-time feedback about how much you’re lifting, the speed and even the quality of each rep, it can react by either increasing or lowering the cables’ resistance, which is what happened when I struggled to complete a rep toward the end of my 30 minute session. It was like having your own spotter at the gym, minus the embarrassment. Tonal is also designed to keep track of your progress over time and modify the exercises and resistance as you get stronger rather than just repeating the same old gym routine. That should give you a more efficient workout with faster results. Price and availabilityWith its $2,999 price tag, those results won’t come cheap. Still Tonal is on par with a similar weight machine, but you also have to factor in a $250 installation fee, the optional $500 dollar accessory kit plus a $49 monthly fee for the personal training service, so all in you’re looking at a $3,740 investment. This gives you an unlimited number of accounts which each person using Tonal will get a customized routine. Tonal may end up getting more features down the line. Orady said that future software updates bring more specialized training programs and could potentially unlock the other sensors, mics and cameras currently dormant in the machine.I didn’t notice any results after my initial 30 minute session with Tonal, but I did work up a sweat and felt some soreness the next day, so I’d definitely be curious to test it out for a longer period of time to see if I notice progress faster than with my regular routines. You can buy Tonal now on the company’s site with deliveries beginning in September for San Francisco Bay Area residents. Tonal will roll out to other cities in the coming months.  Fitness Smart Home Sport and Outdoors Now playing: Watch this: Tonal shrinks your gym into a touchscreen TV Share your voice 9 2:28 Tags Comments Every fitness guru will tell you that strength training is a big part of staying in shape. But weight rooms can be intimidating when you’re just starting out, which is why I’d rather take a toning class like pilates than step foot in a gym. Plus getting to a gym and back can also suck up a lot of time. So I was anxious to try Tonal, a new personal weightlifting device that doesn’t use a single weight or require its own room in your house.Tonal’s “weight machine” looks like vertically mounted TV screen for your home or office. No weights, no metal plates, no barbells, just two giant arms that extend outward from the sides of the screen at the push of a button plus a built in coach on its touch screen. Instead of changing weights with a metal rod, you adjust a number on the display: 30 pounds was my starting weight, but Tonal can offer up to 200 pounds of resistance. I grabbed the handle and bent my knees into position to do my first row, half expecting this thing to unbolt from the wall and tip me over in the process. Instead I was met with a good amount of resistance as I pulled back the handle — the same feedback you’d get from a physical weight.OK, I was impressed. But where are the weights? The wall-mounted box could probably hide 30 pounds blocks behind the display, but not 200 pound worth. The answer: The weights are digital, too. Fitnesslast_img read more

Cycle rickshaw pullers stare at bleak future

first_imgIn the busy arterial roads of the national Capital, the never ending traffic problem is taking a toll on the average commuter’s soul. The increasing number of cars, auto-rickshaws, taxi and battery rickshaws has somewhere neglected an archaic mode of transport, the humble cycle rickshaw. A mode of transport which was once used extensively for all magnificent occasions is now being neglected. With an ongoing trend of adapting new models of development, it may not be surprising to see battery rickshaws (also called e-rickshaws) being imported in large numbers.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’In the wake of modernisation and high mobility demand of the fast-paced world, cycle-rickshaws have somewhere lost their significance. It is struggling to sustain itself as a form of transport, as well as a vehicle to sustain livelihood. Rickshaw pullers are amongst the most vulnerable road-user groups and switching to some other job will not guarantee them a stable source of earning. Talking about their condition, a rickshaw puller said, “Being poor and illiterate, this is what we can do to earn our living”. A considerable proportion of urban poor in India comprises of people, who are dependent on rickshaws as a major source of livelihood, for themselves and their family members. In the light of their working environment, their future appears quite hazy.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixIn this scorching heat, it is a task for rickshaw pullers to wander in search of patrons, especially when passengers have an alternate and faster medium to rely on, such as a battery rickshaw. A passenger ignorant about the importance of cycle rickshaws, commented on the condition of cycle rickshaw puller saying, “evil deeds result in hardships and good deeds result in blessings, but destiny seems to be harsh on them”. Though the middle class residents do not acknowledge the presence of cycle rickshaws, they need to understand its importance, as it provides intra-urban transport and last mile connectivity.  With the advent of battery rickshaws, the regular earning of cycle rickshaw pullers has reduced to half.  It is back-breaking for the cycle-rickshaw pullers to cope up with the speed of a battery rickshaw. One should understand that in the busy, chaotic lanes of the city, a cycle rickshaw is a rescue. Rajendra Ravi, Director at Institute for Democracy and Sustainability (IDS), said: “A cycle-rickshaw is an eco-friendly medium and it helps reduce the level of pollution. Then why not make the best of it”. The only thing that a rickshaw puller would want is a better future for their children, where their little one would grow and have the option to create a better life.last_img read more

TG toys with idea of budget carrier

first_imgThai Airways Source = e-Travel Blackboard: K.W After a strong first quarter, Thai Airways may look at setting up a new budget carrier to tap into the no-frills sector, announced by Thai Airways president Piyasvasti Amranand last week. Focusing on profitable destinations in Asia while reducing some loss making routes in Europe, the flag carrier faces regional competition from rivals like Singapore Airlines and Cathay Pacific, according to Reuters. Mr Amranand said in an interview the airline was joining with Nok Air to study a new ultra low cost airline.”Nok Air will focus on domestic routes and we need another one to tap strong demand from this sector.” As a part of a revamp after losing market share in Asia, the airline still aims to launch its mid-range Thai Smile airline on 7 July. Up a massive 500 percent from last year, rising passenger numbers and yields helped Thai Airways make a net profit of THB3.6 billion for the period January to March.”We are confident we will achieve our profit target of THB6 billion baht this year after a strong performance in the first quarter,” Mr Piyasvasti said. Not sure if the airline will make profit in the usual low season that falls in the second quarter, the president is confident of good earnings in the third quarter.On track to take delivery of three Airbus A380s in late 2012, Thai Airways aims to add another three planes in 2013, expanding its total fleet to 109 planes in the next seven years.last_img read more

Head out on the strip to catch a show at Caesar’s Palace, feed your cash into the slots ’til sunrise, and when you’ve had enough partying in public, retire with a few friends to a suite in the MGM or Wynn Las Vegas Resort for a quiet game of billiards,..2. DubaiDubai is another city which is a world of its own, opulent, and if not beautiful, certainly impressive in its six-star extravagance. This is where millionaires come to play. With a bit of pocket money to spare and lots to spend it on, Harry would be in his element here. However, he’d have to keep his clothes on – despite the overflow of western ostentation, this isn’t the land of the free, as some less respectful tourists have found out to their cost. There are however plenty of exclusive nightclubs for blowing your cash on cocktails, while the Dubai Mall is the largest in the world with over 1000 brand name shops. Best leave the other half in the bar, ladies, you could be a while!3. MajorcaThis Balearic island has been a draw for celebrities from Freddie Chopin to Mickey Douglas and Catherine Z-J. If you want to live it up in private (Harry, take note), you can expect to pay £1000 a week for a villa based on six sharing – ideal for you and your crew to party on the cheap. If course, if your budget stretches a little further, you can get a villa with a jacuzzi, a personal chef and a yacht. Whatever extras you may want (well, not quite _every _extra), there are many discreet companies more than eager to assist you, at a fee of course.4. New OrleansThe Mardi Gras, literally ‘Fat Tuesday’, is the ultimate street party. Starting in January and finishing the day before Ash Wednesday and Lent, this wild celebration has religious origins. There is little religious about it now. Dressing up is actively encouraged, even more so after a few rum cocktails. New Orleans, the city where ‘anything goes’, hosts the most famous Mardi Gras. The practice of flashing in the French quarter has become quite popular so we are sure Harry would fit in just fine!5. New South WalesSamurai Beach, a ‘clothing optional resort’ in New South Wales, Australia could be the perfect place for Harry to relax after a hard week partying in Vegas. For the more energetic, the Nude Olympics are held here every November. Events include surfing, the torch relay, and the more docile egg and spoon race. And with so much on show, one’s unclothed figure wouldn’t stick out in any grainy mobile phone pictures!ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Maplast_img read more

first_imgJune 14, 2010 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Cosanti Foundation Reacts to Demolition Plans for Paolo Soleri Amphitheater in Santa Fe Architect Paolo Soleri hopes to find alternatives to demolition. On June 8, 2010, the Santa Fe New Mexican reported that the Paolo Soleri Amphitheater at the Santa Fe Indian School “is scheduled for demolition.” The theater was designed in 1965 by Italian architect Paolo Soleri, who is most noted for pioneering concepts in the fields of environmental architecture and alternative urban planning. Many alumni of the Santa Fe Indian School and local residents of Santa Fe are outraged at the idea of losing the theater, a well-loved venue for performing arts events and graduation ceremonies for the students. Paolo Soleri said “I am willing to do anything to support the preservation of the theater.” Architect Doug Lee said about the demolition plans “It would be a great tragedy when we actually built the theater working with local Indian students.” The Cosanti Foundation looks forward to supporting any effort to preserve, restore, and maintain the Paolo Soleri Amphitheater as a cultural and historic resource in Santa Fe and to work with a variety of organizations to both prevent demolition and to raise funds to help the theater continue to serve both the Santa Fe Indian School students and the Santa Fe community. Soleri last visited the theater when he traveled to Santa Fe to participate in the 2009 Celebrate Sustainable Santa Fe Festival. Roger Tomalty, who has worked with Soleri for over 40 years, accompanied Soleri during the visit and “was surprised how enthralled Paolo was with the structure.” On his visit, Soleri said “I rediscovered the value of the theater.” Cosanti Foundation executive Tomiaki Tamura describes the structure: “The aesthetic vocabulary of the theater resonates with the environment and architecture of Santa Fe, then and now.” In 1965 the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) approached Paolo Soleri to design an outdoor amphitheater at its campus in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Soleri’s design called for a dramatically upwardly-shaped, earth-cast concrete structure to cover the performance area. The theater has since been used for events ranging from internationally publicized rock concerts to IAIA graduation ceremonies to the annual Native Roots and Rhythms Festival. From the book Soleri: Architecture as Human Ecology by Professor Iolanda Lima, Copyright 2003 by The Monacelli Press: “In 1964 Lloyd Kiva New, president of the Institute of American Arts and a friend and admirer of Soleri, commissioned him to build a three hundred seat open-air theater that would both serve its traditional function and “frame the moon and sun. Soleri accepted the assignment… What he was after was not so much stage mobility as synergy among the participants. He achieved this by creating a stage and seating with no division, a place where actors and musicians could interact with spectators.” “Soleri said of the project: ‘We were hoping actors would not just use the stage, but also the area above it, and that’s why we designed the bridge and other platforms. It was meant to be similar to the Elizabethan theater, with action taking place on different levels… The notion of using the local landscape, geology, and natural materials was an integral part of the process. We molded earth and arranged the arches, then we excavated trenches and poured concrete to form the walls, using a technique that captures the consistency and shape of the earth itself.” Paolo Soleri recently said “Lloyd Kiva New was the mover that had the imagination and determination to have the outdoor theater at the Santa Fe Indian School. The construction began as the cooperation of the school’s students headed by Lloyd himself and me with the Cosanti Foundation of Scottsdale, Arizona. Imagination was at the origin of the theater, imagination is essential now. This American culture is bent on demolition in all fields. It is a deleterious way of making history and forfeiting memories, the very memories cutting the landscape of history for country in search of culture and civility.” Soleri’s primary work has been in city design and planning, rather than focusing on individual buildings. He is most known for the alternative planning concept arcology (architecture + ecology) as a method of reducing human impact on the environment while improving quality of life. Soleri often describes “the orchid vs. the forest,” comparing a single building as an architect’s beautiful “orchid” to a complex, interacting city as the “forest.” To Soleri, the amphitheater is an orchid he is proud of.

penetrates deep into the skin and finds its way into the bloodstream.Responding to his attack Priyanka Gandhi during her campaigning in Amethi had responded by saying "Kya mein budhi dikhti hoon(Do I look old to you) However the Congress won those elections and the matter ended there But the time has changed now The Congress is ebbed in Parliament in states Assembliesand in local bodies across the nation What is important to note here is that in recent months this has been Modi’s sharpest attack on Rahul This comes at a time when a number of so-called secularists left-liberal writers and analysts have rediscovered immense virtues of the Congress vice-president and believe that he has come of age and acquired maturity and articulation to effectively take on Modi now and in the 2019 Parliamentary elections Rahul now has a chance to respond to Modi by winning the Himachal Pradesh or Gujarat Assembly elections But if he fails to win these two states then Modi would have won decisively yet another battle Modi knows that targeting an individual may not augur well so he tried to link it with the degeneration of main Opposition party from being an organisation which effectively ruled every inch of the country to a rotten thought which is no longer a party which Mahatma Gandhi and other freedom fighters once nurtured to an organisation which was corrupt dynastic promoted communalism and casteism for electoral gains Modi didn’t spare former prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru either He said that when he talked of a Congress-mukt Bharat he was referring to getting rid of that degenerative thought which the present-day Congress represents He referred to former finance minister P Chidambaram’s advocacy for Kashmir’s autonomy asking who gave him (Chidambaram) the right to insult jawans who were willing to sacrifice their lives for theintegrity of the nation Besides distancing from Chidambaram’s remark the Congress had not said anything on its leader’s position Interestingly Rahul has been talking highly of Chidambaram in his public meetings while blasting Modi on demonetisation The BJP leaders would be satisfied by the kind of response he evoked from themassive crowds gathered to hear his speech Anthony Bourdain had countless journeys uncovering overlooked places around the world from Vietnam to Borneo and Palestine But one of his most memorable efforts was his work with a restaurant reviewer in Grand Forks North Dakota After Grand Forks Herald dining critic Marilyn Hagerty went viral in 2012 for a review she wrote about Olive Garden (she called it “impressive” and commended the “generous” portion of chicken Alfredo she received) Bourdain quickly stepped out of the hordes of people who gave her a lot of snark for taking a chain restaurant so seriously Instead he met with Hagerty and published a book of her columns to which he wrote the foreword Bourdain who died Friday at the age of 61 left a lasting impression on Hagerty who met him once in New York City after her viral article Hagerty 92 told TIME she didn’t know Bourdain at all before her story drew widespread attention online but that he supported her at an important time “People were saying what a funny strange thing it was for anyone to write about the Olive Garden and all of a sudden Anthony Bourdain came to my side” she said “He said he agreed with the people at first and as he thought about it more he seemed to appreciate the fact that for people in middle America it’s part of how we eat” Bourdain’s appreciation extended through much more of Hagerty’s work Grand Forks North Dakota doesn’t see many of the food trends or small restaurants that specialize in particular dishes that pop up in places like New York or San Francisco But for Hagerty writing about food just means going everywhere including fast food chains like McDonald’s and Taco Bell and buffets frequented by truck drivers It was Hagerty’s ability to notice such things that prompted Bourdain to suggest she write a book of her columns when they met for coffee at a hotel in New York in 2012 “I expected to meet some kind of character” she said “I found him to be not a wild reckless character of a person as I had expected I found him to be a very pleasant businessman and journalist” The meeting resulted in a book: Grand Forks: A History of American Dining in 128 Reviews which Bourdain published under his imprint with Ecco in 2013 In the foreword to the book he noted that Hagerty’s work is much different than what is written about restaurants in New York or London or Paris According to Eater he wrote: Ms Hagerty is not nave about her work her newfound fame or the world She has travelled widely in her life In person she has a flinty dry very sharp sense of humor She misses nothing I would not want to play poker with her for money This is a straightforward account of what people have been eatingstill ARE eatingin much of America As related by a kind good-hearted reporter looking to pass along as much useful information as she canwhile hurting no one Anyone who comes away from this work anything less than charmed by Ms Hagertyand the places and characters she describeshas a heart of stone This book kills snark dead The onslaught of attention on Hagerty has calmed down in the last five years But Bourdain’s impact on her will never go away “All these years people who didn’t know me were just so impressed that Anthony Bourdain published my book” she said “Why would he notice me in Grand Forks North Dakota But he did” She added: “To me he
