first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Thousands of Melburnians and visitors to Victoria’s capital braced wild winds and rain last Saturday to take part in the 2013 Lonsdale St Greek Festival and to hear Greek popstar Mihalis Hatzigiannis perform. The weather forecast predicted that Melbourne was set for some tumultuous rains, but nothing could have prepared organisers for what was to follow. But the Greek strong crowd took it in their stride when the festival was officially launched by Victorian Premier Denis Napthine and with the president of the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and Victoria declaring that nothing could stop the Greeks, especially not the weather. Prior to the official launch, the Prime Minister of Australia Julia Gillard, with umbrella in tow, ventured around the street and met with festival goers. Opposition leader Tony Abbott did the same alongside the Victorian Premier before all the distinguished guests took to the main stage for the launch. Also on the main stage were the Leader of the Victorian Opposition Daniel Andrews, Bishop Ezekiel of Dervis, Lord Mayor of Melbourne Robert Doyle and the Ambassador of Greece to Australia Haris D. Dafaranos. The Prime Minster also spent time with Hatzigiannis backstage, and posed for photos with students of the Greek Community’s Language Schools. “The presence of Ms Gillard and Mr Abbott reflects the esteem with which the Greek Community of Melbourne is held and its contribution to the fabric of our multicultural nation,” said Mr Papastergiadis. In her speech, Ms Gillard noted that the Greek influence on the fabric of Australia “helped us build a model of citizenship-based multiculturalism which the world admires – and no wonder the people who invented the very idea of citizenship are among the most enthusiastic of all our migrant communities to become citizens of this country,” the Prime Minister told the crowd. After mentioning her grandfather fought alongside the Greeks in the Salonika Front in northern Greece, she went on to congratulate the Greek community and the Hellenic RSL on their work to revive the joint military heritage, specifically the role of Lemnos as a Gallipoli campaign base and Australia’s support for Greece in the Greek campaign and the Battle of Crete. Just after 8:15 pm Hatzigiannis took to the stage to the delight of thousands of fans huddled under umbrellas to see him. There were rumours circulating that he might not have been performing because of the bad weather conditions but he proved on the night the show really must go on as he belted out hit after hit. But it was when all had gone home for the night that things took a turn for the worse. Early Sunday morning strong winds destroyed a major section of the Antipodes Festival precinct. The Qatar Airways Marquee collapsed, along with more than 15 stalls. The Fix pop-up bar was also destroyed when 35 km/h winds hit the CBD. Stalls lost valuable items relating to their involvement at the Festival, while others lost irreplaceable items of cultural importance, which of course impacted on them being able to continue their involvement at the festival. Despite this setback, the festival soldiered on in day two with a stellar line up. They set a record number of participants for the Zorba till You Drop contest, with the winner Elli Baharakakis earning herself a return trip for two to Greece thanks to Qatar Airways and a four day Greek island cruise courtesy of Touchdown Tours. Feeling generous, the sponsors awarded the runner up Christina Jonas the same prize, making both girls incredibly happy. A highlight was the collective dance performance on Sunday afternoon, when Melbourne’s Greek dancing groups joined in one huge procession from one stage to another, ending in one of the most colourful and collective performances ever seen at the Lonsdale Street Festival. And then – to everyone’s surprise – the Cretan Lyra king Psarantonis did a surprise performance flanked by his son George Xylouris and Jim White from The Dirty Three. “Despite the weather conditions, the weekend was full of music and movement. The persistent presence of a crowd – even during high winds and rain- highlights the fact that it has become a milestone event in the Greek community and more broadly in Melbourne. Lonsdale Street remains the beacon of Greek Australian history and culture in Melbourne. The Antipodes Festival and the GOCMV are proud to continue and further these,” said Tammy Iliou, Co-chair of the Antipodes Festival. In Sydney, GreekFest broke attendance records as thousands poured into Darling Harbour to experience a taste of Greece last weekend. The shores of Darling Harbour were a sea of blue and white as Greeks and Philhellenes celebrated two days of music, food, dancing and the best of local and international live entertainment. International superstar and highlight of the weekend’s entertainment Mihalis Hatzigiannis delivered the ultimate performance and the crowd was not disappointed. Sydney was aflutter with cooking demos from last season’s My Kitchen Rules contestants Helen and Steve, dancing from a dozen different dance groups, music from some of the best local talent, and even a life jacket fashion parade hosted by Fat Pizza’s Paul Fenech; there was plenty to keep the audience entertained. “These results would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work of everyone involved, from the sponsors, stall holders, volunteers, artists and everyone working behind the scenes to make this festival one of the most successful ever. It is a testament to the efforts of the Greek Orthodox Community of NSW,” said Festival Chair Nia Karteris Officially launched by The Hon Tony Burke, the Darling Harbour festivities are only a part of what’s to come in the next six weeks of the Greek Festival cultural program. * Turn to our social pages on pages 26 and 27 for more pics from the 2013 Lonsdale St Greek Festival.last_img read more

first_imgThousands of residents lost power and vehicle crashes slowed the evening commute Monday as heavy rainfall and thunderstorms struck Clark County and other parts of the Portland metro area.The first storms moved in late Monday afternoon. Around 4:30 p.m., the Bonneville Power Administration lost its feed with Clark Public Utilities, causing an estimated 14,325 customers to lose electricity in Camas and Washougal, Clark Public Utilities spokeswoman Erica Erland said. She said the outage was weather-related. Customers started to get their power back just after 7 p.m.About half an inch of rainfall was recorded Monday evening at Pearson Field, said Steve Pierce, a Salmon Creek resident, Columbian weather blogger and president of the Oregon chapter of the American Meteorological Society. “That’s a good amount of rainfall for one day in the month of June,” Pierce said. Although rain and thunderstorms aren’t unheard of in the spring, Monday’s thunder, lightning and downpours (and reports of marble-sized hail in Oregon) were more than what forecasters expected, he said. During the storms, the Washington State Patrol reported several vehicle spin-outs on highways around the county, Trooper Will Finn said.Just after 5:30 p.m., a tractor-trailer crashed on state Highway 14 eastbound near Evergreen Boulevard. As the tractor-trailer traveled uphill in the right lane, its driver apparently noticed too late that traffic had stopped, Finn said.last_img read more

The former Indian cricketer’s wife is a partner in an agro-based company and has accused eight of her partners. According to reports, they took a loan from a Delhi-based creditor without informing her.The complaint filed by Aarti stated that “accused persons approached the creditors without any consent and knowledge of the complainant…and availed loan of Rs 4.5 crore from them.”The accused also influenced the creditor by taking Virender Sehwag’s name. She further accused them of forging her signature on the agreement and issuing two postdated cheques to the creditor. The firm failed to repay the loan amount.”Due to the default, the creditors invoked the arbitration clause and filed a complaint in the court. During the proceeding, it was shocking for the complainant to see her signature and partite agreement, which she had never signed,” the complaint read.According to ANI, the police have registered an FIR under sections 420 (cheating and dishonestly), 468 (forgery), 471 (using as genuine a forged document) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code.last_img read more

first_imgBrigitte Trogneux, the wife of French presidential election candidate Emmanuel Macron casts her ballot during the the second round of 2017 French presidential election, in Le Touquet. Photo: ReutersWhen they first met, he was 15, she was a married 40-year old teacher coaching him in a school play. Set to enter the Elysee presidential palace as First Lady, Brigitte Macron will keep coaching her husband, but on a bigger stage now.Newly-elected French President Emmanuel Macron’s wife, now 64, has been constantly by his side during his campaign, managing his agenda, editing his speeches and advising him on his stage presence.For his victory speech after winning the first round of the election two weeks ago, Macron brought his wife onto the podium and thanked her, to long applause.“Brigitte, always present, and even more now, without whom I would not be me,” an emotional Macron said as hundreds of his supporters shouted her name.Both complete unknowns when Macron was appointed economy minister in Socialist President Francois Hollande’s government in August 2014, Brigitte Macron, born Trogneux, resigned from her teaching job a year later to help her ambitious young husband.At the economy ministry, she was a discreet presence during meetings with officials in the modernist Bercy building by the Seine in eastern Paris.“She spends a lot of time here because her view matters to me, because she brings a different atmosphere, that is important. My life is here, you cannot work well if you are not happy,” Macron said in his last staff meeting after he resigned from the Hollande government in August 2016.He would not declare his presidential bid until three months later, on Nov. 16, 2016, but by then he had already started making the relationship with Trogneux – nearly 25 years his senior – an integral part of his public persona.In the months leading up to his official candidacy, the French public discovered Trogneux in a series of cover stories in the popular society magazine Paris Match, including, in August 2016, one of the couple on the beach, the petite blonde looking svelte and tanned in a one-piece bathing suit.“Lovers’ holiday before the offensive,” read the headline.In a November 2016 TV documentary on France 3, just days after Macron declared his bid, the couple shared video footage of the youthful Macron in the school play at which they met, and footage of their 2007 wedding ceremony.“Thanks for accepting us, a not quite normal couple,” Macron is heard saying in a video of the ceremony, attended by Trogneux’ then adult children. He was nearly 30, she 54.French cartoonists and satirical radio and TV programmes regularly mock the couple’s age difference, portraying Macron as a schoolboy taking instructions from his teacher.Macron supporters say these jokes are misogynist, saying that nobody would bat an eyelid if the age difference – the same as between U.S. President Donald Trump and his wife Melania – had been the other way around.Trogneux, takes the mockery in her stride and has joked that if he wanted to run for president, he better do it soon, while she still looked presentable.“He needs to go for it in 2017 because by 2022, his problem will be my face,” she was quoted as telling a friend in Nico­las Pris­sette’s book “Emma­nuel Macron en marche vers l’Élysée”Born Brigitte Trogneux April 13, 1953, the youngest of six children in a family of wealthy chocolate makers in the northern town of Amiens, she married a banker with whom she had three children.In 1993, in the Providence Jesuit college where she taught French and drama, the young Macron acted in a play under her supervision. The next year, the two rewrote a play together, adapting it to include more roles.“Little by little, I came totally under the spell of the intelligence of this young boy,” Trogneux told France 3 TV.As rumours started to fly about the relationship, Macron left Amiens to complete his last year of high school at the prestigious Lycee Henri IV in Paris, a traditional breeding ground for the French elite.“You cannot get rid of me. I will come back and I will marry you,” Macron told Trogneux according to his biographers.Asked about what role Trogneux would play at the Elysee if he were elected, Macron has said that he will propose that within the first weeks of his presidency a formal, albeit unremunerated, role is established for the French First Lady and that she will have her say in how that role is defined.“She will have an existence, she will have a voice there, a view on things. She will be at my side, as she has always been, but she will also have a public role,” he said.last_img read more

first_imgLawyers for the Coalition for Excellence and Equity in Higher Education, which represent Morgan State University, Coppin State University, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and Bowie State University have been engaged in a legal battle alleging unlawful duplication of their programs by traditionally White Institutions since October 2006. The legal wrangling has reached the mediation phase between the two sides, and still very little is known by the general public in reference to what’s really at stake for the state’s historically Black colleges and universities. A town hall style meeting on the plight of the state’s HBCU is planned for 6 to 8:30 p.m., May 13 on the campus of Coppin State University. Veteran award-winning journalist George Curry is set to moderate the discussion at the school’s James Weldon Johnson Auditorium to shed light on the historic lawsuit.“I think the goal is to educate the public, the broader community as to what this case is all about and what its implications are for the future of historically Black colleges and more generally of Maryland higher education,” said Dr. Earl Richardson, former president of Morgan State University, one of the participants in Coppin’s town hall event. Richardson was president of Morgan when the Coalition lawsuit was filed against MHEC in 2006. He says the Black community needs to be stirred to action over the plight of HBCU during this primary election year.“Now is the time to force the hand of the candidates force the hand of the elected officials,” Richardson said. “It’s within your (politicians) power to resolve this issue now. It’s been in the courtroom simply because of your refusal to address what is obviously a major example of discrimination and segregation,” he added.Veteran defense attorney A. Dwight Petit, a former member of the University System of Maryland Board of Regents will also participate in the town hall meeting.“We need to continue to put pressure on the state,” Petit said. “The governor’s office has called the shots the attorney general’s office is carrying out those shots and the Board of Regents as well as the Secretary of Higher Education…(We need) to bring this matter to a complete and just result without it having being returned back to the federal courts,” Petit added.State Senator Joan Carter Conway – a vocal advocate for HBCU – who has attempted to pass anti-duplication laws through the legislature for nearly a decade will also participate in the meeting at Coppin.Michael Jones, from Kirkland and Ellis, one of the law firms representing the Coalition is also scheduled to attend the town hall meeting.Prince George’s County Delegate Aisha Braveboy, chair of the state’s legislative Black Caucus and a candidate for Maryland Attorney General has also been invited to participate in the event at Coppin.But, perhaps the invitee with the highest profile is former Maryland Lt. Governor and former chairman of the Republican National Committee Michael Steele. Steele, who has been a staunch supporter of HBCU wrote in a commentary on The Grio website last October: “With so many of the civil rights battles behind us, and the satisfaction that comes from the success of African-Americans in business, politics, sports and entertainment, it is no surprise that the assault upon the integrity and historic purpose of our nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) has been little noticed by mainstream media and, more sadly, the black community itself.”last_img read more

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: S.P La Traviata will transform Sydney for three weeks from 24 March In an effort to boost Australian tourism, Opera Australia has embarked on an AUD11.5million elaborate outdoor spectacle called ‘La Traviata’.The “floating Opera” although not the first in the world will allow visitors and residents from 24 March the opportunity to watch opera performances against one of the world’s top backdrops, Sydney Harbour, the Herald Sun reported.The Performers will take to an open-air 25 meter “shimmering” stage on the harbour, with a giant crystal chandelier that will be suspended in the air giving the illusion that it is floating above the stage.Opera Australia Artistic Director of Opera Australia Lyndon Terracini said the backdrop will have views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House and the city skyline.“Everyone loves to look at the outside of the Sydney Opera House, so why not have that as the backdrop of a wonderful production,” Mr Terracini saidWith statistics by the Australian Bureau of Statistics indicating a drop of 0.2 percent in international visitors, it is hoped the spectacle will boost visitor arrivals.Tourism NSW is confident that with arrivals from China increasing 19.4 percent last year to 542,000 the event will only further increase visitors from this region. An Opera Australia spokesperson said the spectacle will be one of the iconic events that Australia will be known for overseas. “We are confident it will grow to an annual event and it will attract people from all over the world,” the spokesperson said. The spectacle will run for three weeks at the Royal Botanical Gardens and can be watched by up to 3000 guests.last_img read more

first_img Zespri operating revenue exceeds NZ$3B for first t … Staff of New Zealand kiwifruit marketer Zespri have moved into the company’s new head office in Mount Maunganui following the completion of the first phase of the new redevelopment.The new three-level office sits alongside Zespri’s former headquarters on Maunganui Road and can accommodate 340 staff. It features activity-based work zones spread across four work neighborhoods.It will also act as a hub for the kiwifruit industry, bringing together Zespri teams who had previously been working at three sites across Tauranga and fellow industry organizations New Zealand Kiwifruit Growers (NZKGI) and Kiwifruit Vine Health (KVH) who have ground floor offices in the new building.Zespri acting chief people officer Dave Courtney says the new head office marks an important step in starting a new chapter in Zespri’s story. “Today’s a really special day not just for our Zespri team but for the broader kiwifruit industry,” he said. “We achieved some great things in our old office and have some fond memories from our 23 years there, including the way our industry came together to work through some challenging times, but we’ve clearly outgrown it.“Our new office provides a fantastic and modern working environment that connects us both with the significant kiwifruit growing region of the Bay of Plenty, but also with our global markets who are represented in the names of some of our new meeting rooms,” Mr Courtney says.Zespri had invested over NZ$40 million in the design, build, fit-out and furnishing of the new complex, with the second phase of the building’s construction to commence shortly. This is expected to be completed by the end of the year with an official opening of the new building to occur in early 2020.The next phase of work includes the final demolition of the previous 1970s-built head office and the construction of an additional wing to house several meeting rooms featuring the latest interactive technology and a demonstration kitchen. The neighbouring council-owned park would also be redeveloped and landscaped, providing another green space for the local community to enjoy.“We’re looking forward to the completed building complex being a space that our community can enjoy and that the whole kiwifruit industry can come together in to celebrate future milestones and entertain visiting government, trade and media delegations,” Courtney says.“We see it not only as our new home, but a home for the wider industry, and we’re committed to working together to continue to deliver positive results for our growers and our communities in the years ahead.” April 08 , 2019 You might also be interested incenter_img Sinclair launches compostable labels for fresh pro … NZ: Seasonal labor shortage declared for Bay of Pl … NZKGI hails success of labor shortage declaration … last_img read more

Faceless Men “No One” the eighth episode of Game of Thrones‘ sixth season airs Sunday at 9 pm EST on HBO [h/t Reddit] Write to Megan McCluskey at meganmccluskey@timeinccomMarkets always love a money dump which is why European stocks are now rallying on news that the European Central Bank will purchase 11 trillion worth of euro-denominated bonds between now and September 2016 Bond yields are dropping implying less risk in the European debt markets And the value of the euro itself is falling which should make European exports more competitive which could in turn bolster the European economy over all All good right For now yes it is all good But let’s remember that central bank quantitative easing (QE) of the kind that Europe is now embarking on is always just a Band-Aid on economic troubles not a solution to underlying structural issues in a country (or in this case a region) Just as the Fed’s $4 trillion QE money dump bolstered the markets but didn’t fix the core problems in our economygrowing inequality a high/low job market without enough work in the middle flat wages historically low workforce participationso the ECB QE will excite markets for a while but it won’t mend the problems that led Europe to need this program to begin with Those consist primarily of a debt crisis stemming from the lack of real political integration within the EU Right now Europe has a currency and an economic union that exists in a kind of fantasy land with no underlying political unity Until the Germans start acting more European (meaning creating a consumption society and realizing that they’ll have to do some fiscal transfers to struggling peripheral nations in exchange for the huge export benefits they get from the euro) and countries like Spain Italy Portugal and France start making the changes they really need (all the usual stufflabor market reforms cutting red tape fighting corruption opening up service markets) the debt crisis won’t go away Indeed the challenge now is for countries is to use the breathing room that the ECB has given them to really come together over the next 18 months and make those reforms happen while committing to a truly integrated Europe Germany should say it will unequivocally back peripheral nations financially in exchange for a promise of real reforms in those nations (There should also be tough penalties for failure on both sides of the bargain) That will be tough for sure but Europe will find itself in an even worse place come September 2016 if it doesn’t take action now Post QE without any real structural reform the EU will simply have an even more bloated balance sheet and the market will exact punishment for it For a historical lesson on this look to the many emerging market crises of the past where countries tried to spend themselves out of their problems without doing underlying reforms; it always ends in a stock market crash a financial crisis and plenty of tears The buck has stopped for Europe The ECB has called policy makers’ bluff It’s time to create a real United States of Europe to match the common currency Contact us at editors@timecomIt turns out Kim Jong Un is

Sears was the find the most out of several large companies including Amazoncom and Macys that agreed to pay fines totaling nearly $13 million for violating for violating the Textile Products Identification Act last year The FTC charged the companies for labelling clothing products as made of bamboo when they were actually made of rayon While using bamboo to make clothing is arguably "green" rayon a synthetic cellulose fiber is manufactured using toxic chemicals in a process known for its hazardous byproducts the FTC noted These companies had previously received warnings from the

would boost immunity and provide essential portions of healthy nutrients 4 Snapchat > Parent Company: Snapchat > Ad changed: Yes > Settlement Amount: N/A Snapchat is a smartphone application designed to send disappearing photos or "snaps" to friends The FTC however charged the company for misleading consumers into believing the photos would actually disappear forever when there are actually a number of simple ways to preserve the snaps The FTC also accused the company of misrepresenting the extent to which it collected personal information including geolocation data This is not the first

Countries in the World Americas Most Common Jobs Contact us at editors@timecomThe United Kingdom announced today the creation of a 120 million network of four “quantum technology hubs”—involving 17 universities and 132 companies—to create new commercially viable technologies based on quantum mechanics Each of the hubs led by the universities of Birmingham Glasgow Oxford and York will focus on different applications of quantum technology “This exciting new Quantum Hubs network will push the boundaries of knowledge and exploit new technologies to the benefit of health care communications and security” said Greg Clark minister for universities science and cities at an event at the University of Birmingham today Although UK research has had a nominally flat budget over the past few years the government has launched a few new initiatives among them a 5-year 270 million National Quantum Technologies Programme announced last year Under this program which includes 190 million in new money the government called for outline proposals for quantum hubs In July these were narrowed down to a short list of eight which were then peer-reviewed “We’re really pleased now to get the money and get started” says one of the winners Tim Spiller of the University of York who heads the new hub focusing on quantum communications The hub’s 24 million in funding will be spent not on bricks-and-mortar but to equip and pay for research at universities and in industry The York-centered hub involves seven other universities and nine companies including Toshiba and British Telecom as well as the National Physical Laboratory Of the four “we’re a relatively compact and tightly focused hub” Spiller says The often bizarre properties of quantum mechanical systems have been studied extensively in the lab for decades but few products have resulted Now countries other than the United Kingdom are investing heavily in turning lab results into marketable systems “The UK has a history of not doing that well” Spiller says “We are going to do something about it” He mentions a recent demonstration by Hewlett-Packard’s laboratories in Bristol UK, for Madonna to go from a small blurb in TIME (“She
