OTTAWA – The advent of the #MeToo movement in Canadian politics has cabinet ministers speaking publicly — and young staffers, quietly — about the open secret of predatory, sexualized behaviour in political Ottawa.Many describe the so-called whisper network, where staff members secretly share stories and trade advice on which politicians to avoid, or who to reach out to for some informal support.Women in politics deserve better, Conservative MP Michelle Rempel forcefully told the House of Commons this week.“Using the whisper network, the gossip chain that we use to tell each other when we see something or hear something, can no longer be seen as the main way to manage incidents of harassment,” Rempel said.“It is a privileged system that does nothing to protect victims, nothing to empower them to come forward to report abuse, nothing to prevent violence, and nothing to prevent vexatious complaints from being made.”Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, among many others, have said dealing with sexual misconduct on Parliament Hill demands changing the culture and the rules, something that will take time.Eager for change, a number of women in Canadian politics are seeking out creative solutions to fill in the gaps in the interim.A Toronto-based organization called the Young Women’s Leadership Network is designing an online tool kit aimed at helping political parties — and the many young people who volunteer for them — prevent and address sexual violence on the campaign trail.“It will actually lead to young women staying involved in politics instead of just leaving,” said Arezoo Najibzadeh, co-founder of the organization.The tool kit, which is being developed in consultation with those who have directly experienced sexual harassment, including in politics, will provide tips on how to keep volunteers safe while out on the campaign trail, build trust and make sure they are supported in the event of trouble.Najibzadeh said in-person training, which the organization hopes to start offering to campaign managers, staff and volunteers in Toronto by the end of April — in time for the Ontario election — will complement the online tool kit.A Manitoba senator has also decided to take matters into her own hands.Independent Sen. Marilou McPhedran has set up a confidential email address (confidential(at)mariloumcphedran.com) where anyone who has been an employee, intern or volunteer at the Senate since 2006 can speak directly to her, or be referred to a lawyer she is hiring through her own office budget.McPhedran, a human rights lawyer who has chaired inquiries into sexual abuse patients, said survivors of sexual assault or harassment typically want to get a sense of closure, but they also want to stop the person who harmed them from doing it to anyone else.“They want the institution to stop the ways the institution has been enabling the abuse of power,” she said.She wants to give them a means of sharing any information that could bring about that goal, but in a confidential way that might not even end up naming the person accused of inappropriate behaviour.“If we are going to make genuine, lasting change, then we need to understand better what has happened before,” she said.“We don’t have to identify anyone, but the information that survivors have is something that they may wish to be sharing, but they don’t have a safe environment in which to share it,” she said, noting the extent of disclosure would be entirely up to the person who decides to reach out.Meanwhile, the MPs studying proposed legislation to strengthen harassment regulations in federal workplaces, including Parliament Hill, will also invite staffers, interns and even their colleagues to share their stories behind closed doors.The details are still being worked out, but the House of Commons human resources committee has agreed to devote one meeting, to be held in camera, to allow those “with lived experience of workplace harassment or sexual violence” to appear and have their privacy protected.The proposed legislation, known as Bill C-65, would apply to all employees working for parliamentarians, too, but there is a separate code of conduct aimed at addressing allegations of harassment between MPs that could also be getting a revamp.The procedure and House affairs committee unanimously passed a motion Thursday to create a sub-committee to handle the task.The code was reviewed last fall, but Liberal MP Filomena Tassi, the government’s deputy whip, said things have changed so much in the past few months that it is time to dig deeper.The #MeToo movement, the recent cases involving Canadian politicians and a survey of female MPs by The Canadian Press have all helped to shift the landscape, Tassi said.— Follow @smithjoanna on Twitter
The world’s biggest pop band, One Direction, have just returned from an inspiring trip to Ghana, where they visited projects that receive support from money raised through Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day.The band filmed scenes for the video of the official Red Nose Day single in Ghana and also made a film which will be shown on the Red Nose Day Night of TV in March.Whilst away in Africa Harry tweeted “Today was the most amazing day I’ve had so far.. In my life ever,” before adding on his return to the UK “@rednoseday Thank you so much for having us. It was amazing and we’ll see you soon .xx”The band’s Red Nose Day single, One Way or Another, will be released in February.

Renting clothes is going to replace fast-fashion, the founder of a new start-up has said as millennials turn their backs on throwaway items.Victoria Prew launched her website HURR to the public this year, which allows customers to rent “it” dresses – which usually retail at £150 and up – which would only usually be fashionable for one season. This reduces waste as one dress can be rented by dozens of people, stopping each person from buying it themselves.Around 300,000 tonnes of clothing ends up in household bins every year with around 80 per cent of this incinerated and 20 per cent sent to landfill.Ms Prew said: “Extending the life of the clothes you own is the best way to reduce your ‘fashion footprint’. Renting is a great way to be sustainable. It’s a driving force of our community and our business. Renting is the future of fashion, the UK has been quite slow to pick it up, Rent the Runway in the States is worth a billion dollars for example.”She added that instead of buying new clothes, consumers should have a “high-quality capsule wardrobe” and rent statement pieces because “that is the more sustainable way to be”. There are currently 2,000 people on the waiting list for her website, which is expanding as they find more sources of fashionable clothes to lend.Anna Bance, who founded Girl Meets Dress in 2009, said customers initially used the site solely for eveningwear, but are now replacing fast fashion with rented clothes.She added: “50 per cent of a women’s income on clothing is going towards fast-fashion, on something that you’re actually only wearing two or three times. So rental is a substitution for the 50 percent of your wardrobe that you’re only wearing two or three times. Now you can save that money for other more important things in your life or clothes that might last you for 10 years or 20 years. We want women to rethink how they build a wardrobe around smarter choices.”Research from Mintel’s Fashion and Sustainability report found that over half of millennials had either rented fashion or considered doing so.Samantha Dover, Senior Retail Analyst at the company said: “The concept of renting fashion has evolved from its traditional occasionwear origins and people are beginning to understand in the value in renting more frequently. ers.”Consumers are no longer simply hiring fashion products for special occasions; they are renting garments for a variety of different uses. The benefits of renting fashion are wide-ranging. Not only can renting clothes be a more environmentally-friendly alternative to buying into fast-moving fashion trends, but consumers can also save space in their homes with reduced wardrobe needs. Fashion rentals can also be an effective way to fulfil temporary fashion, such as clothing for women during pregnancy. ” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Labour MP Mary Creagh, the chair of the Environmental Audit Committee said: “People are rightly sickened by the fact that 300,000 tons of clothes each year are either landfilled or incinerated.”The rise of hire and resale websites is a crucial part of tackling the throwaway society.”The rental and hiring market is much more developed in the US, it’s worth about £2bn a year, it’s still in its infancy in the UK. I don’t think it’ll ever replace fast fashion but I think it’s a challenger to fast fashion. It takes the guilt out of the one-off purchase.”
Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Battle Ground, is chalking up a win today as one of her bills moves to the House floor.HR 5317 would repeal a 19th-century law that prohibits distilleries on tribal lands. The law, left over from prohibition rules set in 1834, states that any distillery built on tribal land spurs a $1,000 fine and will be shut down by the federal government.“Indian tribes deserve the same economic opportunities as non-tribal citizens,” Herrera Beutler said Tuesday in a press release. “I’m pleased my bipartisan bill was approved by the House Natural Resources Committee this morning, paving the way for the Chehalis Tribe in Southwest Washington and other tribes all over the country to be able to build and operate distilleries on their own lands.”The bill will support plans in the works by the Chehalis Tribe to open a distillery and brewery and diversify the tribe’s economic base.Chehalis Tribal Chairman Harry Pickernell Sr. testified in April that construction of the distillery would create about 100 jobs, with 30 to 40 full-time positions remaining once operations open.As it stands now, he said, the tribe has only about 160 jobs available via its enterprises to serve between 300 and 400 working-age members.One of those enterprises opened in 2008, when the tribe partnered with the Great Wolf Resorts to build the Great Wolf Lodge on tribal lands.Pickernell testified that the distillery rule has never been enforced but that it is impacting their ability to move forward with new development.
Javi Gracia has asked the Watford’s fringe players to take the opportunity and prove themselves as injuries stretch the squad thin.Watford are preparing to host Cardiff on Saturday and will be missing Andre Gray, Will Hughes, Adalberto Penaranda, and Sebastian Prodl through injury, but Gracia says the players available should take the chance and impress.“I like to have all my players available, but in this case, even with two, three, four players out, we have enough players to play in the next game,” Gracia told Sky Sports.“The squad is ready and some of them have been waiting for their chance for a long time. Maybe, in the next games, they will get their chances.What to expect from Watford V Arsenal? Taimoor Khan – September 8, 2019 Arsenal are set to take on Watford this weekend and the game is definitely going to be quite a peculiar contest between two sides…“We have to play a lot of games, so we must be patient and trust our players.“I am always positive and always see the chance to get points. I look back to try and improve the things we can do, but I prefer to be focused on the next game.“And it is a chance for us, playing at home, against Cardiff in this case, it is a good chance to come back and win.”
Prothom Alo, with support of the Directorate of Drug Administration, organises a roundtable on the National Drug Policy 2016, at its office in Karwan Bazar. Photo: Zahidul KarimLack of strong monitoring in the health sector has put people on the high risk of health hazards, said experts at a roundtable on Wednesday.Bangla daily Prothom Alo, with support of the Directorate of Drug Administration, organised the roundtable on the National Drug Policy 2016 in ensuring welfare of public health at its office in Karwan Bazar. The experts said around 120,000 registered pharmacies sell medicines while more than double of the figure are unregistered pharmacies that are selling drugs. They also said people are taking antibiotics without prescriptions as there is no monitoring.President of Bangladesh Medical and Dental Council Mohammad Shahidullah said rampant use of antibiotics has put people on health high risk.He suggests strict monitoring to stop unnecessary use of antibiotics.Professor of the department of pharmaceutical technology at Dhaka University ABM Faroque said during a survey it was found even a big company is producing sub-standard drugs. So monitoring has to be ensured, he added.He also said a small number of pharmacists are being recruited in the directorate of drug administration.Faroque said raw materials for drugs are being sold openly at Mitford in Dhaka, raising concern of health hazards.Director of Dhaka Medical College and Hospital Mizanur Rahman said standard drugs can’t be ensured without strong monitoring.Managing director of Square Pharmaceticals Tapan Chowdhury said, “I don’t claim that there are no anomalies in the drug sector.” Due to lack of awareness, the consumers are also cheated, he added.Tapan also said the pharmaceutical sector in Bangladesh has seen massive development over the years.Dean of pharmacy faculty at Dhaka University Abdur Rahman said the number of pharmacists has to be increased, otherwise the national drug policy can’t be implemented.Public health specialist Nizam Uddin Ahmed said antibiotics are sold even in tea stalls.President of Swadhinata Chikitsak Parishad Iqbal Arslan said considering the purchasing power, the price of drugs is double in Bangladesh in comparison to other countries.Professor emeritus Abul Kalam Azad Chowdhury stressed on the research on the pharmaceutical sector, otherwise the country has to depend on others.President of Consumers Association of Bangladesh (CAB) and also ex chairman of Anti Corruption Commission Ghulam Rahman said standard drugs have to be produced, and this needs strong monitoring.Director general of drug administration Mustafizur Rahman said, “We can’t monitor throughout the country as we have shortage of manpower.””We have initiated a move to recruit a total of 2237 personnel and hope we will be able to strengthen monitoring,” he added.Speaking on the occasion as chief guest health minister Mohammad Nasim said, “Two to three per cent medicines are imported while local companies meet the rest. We have demands of our drugs abroad.”The minister said 66 companies were shut down as these produce sub-standard drugs.”We have introduced model pharmacies to ensure standard drugs,” Nasim said.Director of drug administration Ruhul Amin gave a presentation on the drug policy while Prothom Alo associate editor Abdul Qayyum moderated roundtable.Additional secretary of health ministry Subhash Chandra Sarker, vice-president of pharmacy council Mosaddek Hossain, general secretary of Bangadesh Chemists Diagnostic Association Abdul Hay, adviser of Bangladesh Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association Mominul Hoque and former president of Bangladesh Medical Association Rashid Un Nabi, among others, spoke at the roundtable.
Baltimore Education Coalition Spokeswoman Tenne Thrower speaks to supporters and protesters about needed City Schools’ building improvements. (Photo by Bebe Verdery)As the post-Memorial Day heat swelled in the city this week, Baltimore Education Coalition’s member groups rallied and marched to the State Office Building to persuade the Maryland Board of Public Works to rescind a requirement for Baltimore Public Schools to install air-conditioning units in 2000 classrooms by the start of the 2016-2017 academic year.In May, the three-member Board consisting of Gov. Larry Hogan, State Treasurer Nancy Kopp, and Comptroller, Peter Franchot, voted 2-1 to reduce Baltimore City Schools’ already approved $27.5 million FY 2017 Capital Improvement Program (CIP) request by five million dollars if the school system does not install unit air conditioners in classrooms by August of this year. State Treasurer Nancy Kopp objected to the vote calling it “political theatre.” David Lever, executive director of the Maryland Public School Construction Program resigned in the aftermath of the air-conditioning decision. Level said that the Board of Public Works had no role in intervening in the request for construction funds by a local jurisdiction.“They are giving us an option that doesn’t make sense and it’s backing us into a corner. Where are we going to get the money from? We’ve already had budget cuts with teachers and staff? Instead of us being able to spend the money on what’s needed and intended, they are withholding the money for no reason” said Tenne Thrower, community school coordinator of Barclay Elementary and a leader with the Baltimore Education Coalition.More than 85% of Baltimore City Public School buildings are in poor condition according to a report conducted for the School System by Jacobs Engineering Group. Baltimore School Coalition leaders stated that the older schools required to install the window unit air conditioners are the schools that have multiple problems such as leaky roofs, inadequate electrical systems, malfunctioning fire alarm systems and unreliable heating systems.Baltimore Education Coalition organizers and supporters from the American Civil Liberties said the air conditioning unit issue diverts funds and attention from systemic improvements in Baltimore City Public School buildings and is a political ploy that hurts Baltimore’s children. Last Fall Governor Hogan and Franchot sought to pressure Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz to install window air conditioning units in older county schools, using a portion of the county’s $27 million fund collected for school improvements. Baltimore Education Coalition supporters believe the request for window units in Baltimore City’s older schools is an extension of the demand placed on Baltimore County.In a May 16 letter to the Board of Works, acting Baltimore City School’s Chief Tammy L. Turner wrote that Baltimore Schools do not have the surplus to make the request for window air conditioning a reality. “Our estimate of the cost to install air conditioning units in 2000 classrooms is $27 million. The district does not have additional resources to fund such an aggressive program.” Turner also addressed electrical upgrades, ventilation and other issues that would support installation of window units that make the requested project impossible to achieve between now and the start of the 2016-2017 school year.Students who participated in the rally wanted air conditioning in their buildings, but appealed for a more balanced approach to upgrades that wouldn’t take building improvements away from them later. “I’m here today to request that Governor Larry Hogan give us the $5 million that would be held back instead of the unit air conditioners and not hold the money and us hostage,” said eighth grader Lakara Hebron of Hamstead Hill Academy. Lakrara was one of a group of 20 children from Hamstead Hill who accompanied their principal, Matthew Hornbeck on the march from Samuel Coleridge-Taylor School to the State Office Building.Gerrell Bratcher, one of the dozens of newly laid off employees from Baltimore City Schools expressed disappointment that no representative from City Hall or the Public School System came to hear their concerns. “No one was here representing the City or at least saying to us, ‘We hear you’ or ‘We’re going to call a special session to discuss this.’ Folks are hearing us but no one’s listening. Listening requires a response,” Bratcher said.Maryland Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr. (D-Calvert) and House Speaker Michael E. Busch (D-Anne Arundel) passed legislation in the General Assembly session that recently ended that would nullify decisions by the Board of Public Works made after Jan. 1 on school construction funding policy.Thrower and Frank Patinella, co-leaders of the Baltimore Education Coalition rally, indicated that most members of the Baltimore General Assembly’s delegation were squarely behind their efforts. Yet, so far, it looks like the Maryland Board of Works and Baltimore City Public Schools are both waiting to see who will make the first move.

The content is provided for information purposes only. “Conversely, if light is propagated in the fiber, then the electromagnetic field exerts a pressure on its circumference, commonly called pressure of radiation, which works against surface stresses (the so-called Laplace pressure). Beyond some threshold in irradiance, radiation pressure overcomes the Laplace pressure. The liquid fiber is thus stabilized by the guided light and its radius is determined by the balance between pressure of radiation and Laplace pressure. Thus not only the liquid fiber is stabilized by the light, but its radius self-adapts spontaneously to the beam intensity. “The radius and the length of induced fibers being respectively micrometric and millimetric, these results allow us to advance a microfluidic approach of self-adapted optical guiding while proposing an original answer to the stabilization of liquid columns, a problem studied for the first time by Rayleigh more than one hundred years ago.”In their demonstration, the researchers used a near-critical phase-separated liquid mixture. They focused an argon ion laser beam down into the cell containing the liquid mixture, which was kept above a critical temperature of 35ºC (95ºF) to achieve a low interfacial tension of the meniscus separating the two coexisting fluid phases. When the beam had a high enough power (at least hundreds of milliwatts), and was aimed directly at the interface from the fluid phase of the largest index of refraction, the interface became unstable and formed into a liquid column, stable and perfectly guiding the exciting beam. The physicists explained that the liquid optical fiber strongly depended on the beam power, among other things. For instance, by adjusting the beam diameter inside the liquid, the scientists showed how the liquid optical fiber would change its properties to avoid collapsing. For example, when the beam “waist” (the narrowest part of the beam) is large, the liquid column’s diameter becomes varied across its length. Having different diameter values at a single time makes the system “multistable.” By understanding the underlying mechanisms of liquid optical fiber stability, the scientists hope their work will lead to the development of reconfigurable light-guiding applications, microdevices with fluid interfaces, and other optofluidics technologies, since droplet microfluidics always involves low interfacial tensions between oil and water by adding surfactants.More information: Brasselet, Etienne; Wunenburger, Régis; and Delville, Jean-Pierre. “Liquid Optical Fibers with a Multistable Core Actuated by Light Radiation Pressure.” Physical Review Letters 101, 014501 (2008).Copyright 2008 PhysOrg.com.

Explore further However, guiding light with liquid fibers has been a great challenge for scientists due to the difficulty of creating stable liquid columns. Liquid columns reach a fundamental limitation called the Rayleigh-Plateau instability which says that, in weightless conditions, a liquid column breaks when its length exceeds its circumference. Now, a team of physicists, Etienne Brasselet, Régis Wunenburger, and Jean-Pierre Delville, from the University of Bordeaux in France, has developed a model to explain how a liquid column of large aspect ratio can be stabilized by light radiation pressure. The physicists demonstrated how the characteristics of a liquid optical fiber can be tuned at will, opening the doors to the further development of stable liquid optical fibers and their applications.In 2004, Delville was part of a team that discovered that light radiation pressure has the unique ability to stabilize liquid columns and overcome the Rayleigh-Plateau limit. Further, their technique enabled the liquid columns to self-adapt to the laser that was used to form them, self-tuning their diameter and adjusting their bending angle. However, no one knew the mechanism behind this stabilizing technique, until now. In a recent issue of Physical Review Letters, the University of Bordeaux physicists explain liquid column stability by a balance between the radiation pressure, which tends to expand a cylindrical column outwards, and the inward constricting interface stresses exerted by the Laplace pressure. Based on their model, the researchers could generate liquid optical fibers with aspect ratios of up to 100 (fibers whose lengths were 100 times greater than their diameters).“Strictly speaking, here is the main idea,” Delville told PhysOrg.com. “Squeeze a drop of water between the thumb and the index finger, and then move the two fingers away from each other. The drop takes the form of a small liquid fiber. Stretch still a little more and this fiber breaks in two daughter drops under the influence of surface stresses in order to minimize the energy associated with the increase in water-air surface due to stretching. That is why liquid fibers are so difficult to stabilize.

Image credit: J.P. Delville. (PhysOrg.com) — For several years, physicists have known that liquid columns can be used to guide light. By trapping a light beam, a liquid column can act like an optical fiber, but with a liquid sheathing instead of glass or plastic.
Kolkata: In a sensational incident, a 45-year-old leather engineer who is a resident of Behala’s James Long Sarani, preserved the body of his mother inside a commercial chest freezer at his house for nearly three years after dissecting her body.The accused, Subhabrata Majumdar (45), has already been arrested. According to the preliminary investigation, police suspect that the accused used to withdraw his mother’s pension of Rs 50,000 per month by obtaining the thumb impression of the deceased. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsThe deceased, Bina Majumdar, was a retired employee of the Food Corporation of India (FCI). Her husband and the accused’s father, Gopal Majumdar, who also worked with the FCI, was probably threatened with dire consequences if he revealed the incident.Police said the accused worked in a leather company and had detailed knowledge about how chemicals could be applied for preservation of a dead body. What appears to be more shocking to the cops is that the accused dissected the deceased’s body from throat to lower abdomen to remove various organs which could trigger a foul smell in the neighbourhood. The incident came to light after the police, on specific information, raided the house on Wednesday night. Police are also investigating the role of the victim’s husband as to why he kept mum for almost three years despite knowing everything. It aroused the suspicion of the local residents who found that two air-conditioning machines were recently installed at the ground floor where the freezer was kept. Their suspicions rose as no one stayed on the ground floor and the machines used to run all the time. It was also learnt that the accused who did not mix with the neighbours for the past couple of years told some of them that he had kept his mother in the peace heaven.

Instead of cremating the body it was kept in a chest freezer and the accused son used to administer various chemicals to preserve the body. Police are also interrogating the hospital officials in this connection. Preliminary investigation suggests that the accused used to blackmail his father by saying if he makes the incident public then the accused would leave the house. The elderly father might not have revealed the incident due to his constant threats. He also concealed the death certificate inside the house. He used to withdraw the pension with the help of fudged documents. Police also found ink marks on the deceased’s thumb. The investigators seized various chemicals from the house. During interrogation, the accused has told the police that he could not bear the shock of his mother’s death as he was very close to her. He also told the police that he believes that human cells do not die. The accused further clarified that keeping the cells alive meant keeping the dead person alive. This was the reason behind preserving the body, he claimed.Police are also investigating as to why the accused, who used to work as a senior official at a leather company, had preserved the body of his mother inside a freezer for three years. He might have committed the crime to get his mother’s pension, police suspect. The accused used various foreign languages during the course of interrogation. Cops are also probing if he had any mental ailment. However, cops are investigating all possible angles behind the incident, including interrogation of the victim’s husband.

Ypsonas municipality in Limassol will launch a pilot program in October to reward citizens who recycle, offering them a reduction of up to 30 per cent on their annual rubbish fee, mayor Pantelis Georgiou said on Tuesday.A mobile application has been developed, as part of the programme, allowing citizens to notify the municipality once recycling bins are full.The programme, which aims to reduce residential waste ending up in landfills, will start on October 1 for a period of six months.Georgiou said that 100 households interested in taking part in the programme will receive two bins for free – one for paper and one for PMD – with a capacity of 110 litres each.Participants will be rewarded with “units” based on the frequency they recycle, which they will redeem at the end of the year, paying thus up to 30 per cent less for rubbish collection fees.When fully functional, the programme will record data from participating households to plan an optimum route for rubbish trucks and reduce collection time.The idea emerged after Ecofy, a newly founded company, won the Smart City Hackathon competition organised by Cyta. The Municipality then asked Ecofy to develop the mobile app. The goal is to include more households after the end of the six-month pilot period.The initiative was also welcomed by the Environment Commissioner Ioanna Panayiotou.You May LikePetGentleHow to Stop Dog Barking in Seconds?PetGentleUndovortexpure.comDo you realize how bad your tap water is?vortexpure.comUndoTopixMost Americans Can’t Pass This 20th Century History QuizTopixUndo Films and food at RialtoUndoFresh case of Blue Nile virus in northUndoBritish woman who claimed gang-rape taken to courtUndoby Taboolaby Taboola
