first_imgNorth Delhi is a hub of akhadas but the traditional sport of wrestling, despite the success India achieved in the game in recent years, is not getting the kind of boost it deserves.There are close to ten akhadas here, including big names like Chhatrasal Stadium, Chandgi Ram and Guru Hanuman akahada, but only the top centres have basic facilities. Rest is still grappling to provide good infrastructure and sound training to the kids who come from adjoining statest — Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.A visit to the smaller centres is an eye-opener. An air conditioned hall is a luxury for these centres where kids still train under tin roofs on mud pits. There are certain akhadas which have somehow managed to purchase a mat but it is lying waste as there is no money to built an air conditioned hall.One such unused mat can be seen at Arjuna awardee Sanjay Pehalwan akhada. The centre lacks good equipment and basic facilities. When Mail Today visited the centre there were few young kids doing squats.”The sport has changed. We need to train these kids on mat. In Delhi, the summers are of eight months and one can’t train under tin sheds. We do not have much support from the government and the federation. Only the big akhadas are getting recognition and facilities,” said coach Jagbir Singh.Jagbir, an international referee, said the akhada is losing youngsters everyday as the facilities are not up to mark.”We do not have local kids here, all of them are from Haryana. As you can see there is no hall and the mat we bought from our own money cannot be used,” he added.advertisementThe scene is worse at Aryavart Vyamsala which is as old as 1968 but is on the verge of closing down. Kids stay under a thatched roof in unhygienic condition.”Today’s generation feels mud-wrestling is a colossal waste of time, an unfashionable option for keeping fit. A large number of akhadas, thus, have turned into gyms where young boys go for weight training,” said one of the wrestlers in the centre.A stone’s throw away is famous Chandgi Ram akhada, which recently got renovated and a fully AC wrestling hall was made for the grapplers.Talking to Mail Today, Jagdish Kaliraman said change is the need of the hour.”To compete with the international wrestlers, we need to update ourselves. Rules have changed, so is wrestling and it is time we adapt so that Indian wrestlers can win more medals at international events,” said Jagdish, son of Chandgi Ram.”The government gave us mat and coaches. But we spent money for an air conditioned hall with modern facilities and other equipment.”The Bharat Kesari emphasised on the improvement of the infrastructure of akhadas. “Wrestling is gaining popularity after the success of bollywood movies and Olympic medals won by Sushil, Yogeshwar and Sakshi. I think the federation (Wrestling Federation of India) need to work more on improving the infrastructure, so that more youngsters (boys and girls) can come and be part of the traditional sport,” he said.When contacted, WFI assistant secretary Vinod Tomar said the federation is doing every bit to promote the sport. “Whenever, we get to know that some akhada (recognised) want some help, we do our best. We provide them mats,” he said.last_img read more

first_img Rum 101: An Introduction to the Different Types of Rum and How They’re Made The Best Wheated Bourbon Alternatives to Pappy Flor De Cana Celebrates 130 Years With 30-Year-Old V Generaciones Rum Oak barrels are magical. Put something inside of them, and with a bit of patience they spit out something drastically better. The only problem is that aging is traditionally done in 55-gallon oak barrels, so unless you’re a winemaker or distiller with 55 gallons of booze to spare, you typically don’t have the resources you need to age your own spirits. For this reason, barrel aging has been out of reach for the average consumer – until now.With a line of smaller, more manageable casks, Deep South Barrels hopes to make barrel aging a possibility for the average Joe. The company sells a variety of charred oak barrels, ranging in size from the ultra-miniature 1-liter, to a beefy (but manageable) 20-liter.What’s the advantage of aging in smaller barrels? Well, aside from the fact that you can carry one of these badboys without using a forklift, small barrels are better simply because they speed up the aging process. The reason bourbon makers leave their concoctions in barrels for 8 to 12 years is because with 55-gallons of whiskey, it takes a long time for the booze to extract tannins and vanillins from the charred oak. With a smaller barrel you get a higher surface area to liquor ratio, so the chemical reactions needed to mellow your hooch occur more rapidly. Therefore, all those wonderful oaky flavors that would take years to achieve in a full-size 55-gallon barrel can be achieved in just a few months with a barrel that’s only one or two liters.According to Deep South Barrels, a two month steep in one of their awesome, desk-sized 1-liter barrels is roughly equivalent to a full year in a 55-gallon cask. That means you could start with moonshine, and in just over a year be drinking bourbon that tastes like it’s been aged for eight. And you can use it on more than just whiskey, too – barrel aging works wonders on all kinds of drinks, including rum, red wine, tequila, and even root beer.Check out to learn more or to order yourself a barrel. If you’d like, you can even have yours custom engraved to add a bit of personalization.

first_img Minister of Water, Land, Environment and Climate Change, Hon. Robert Pickersgill, on September 12 broke ground for the Lucea Pipeline Replacement and Non Revenue Water (NRW) Reduction project valued at a projected cost of US$12.6 million.The ground-breaking ceremony took place in Elgin Town, near Lucea and work on the project is expected to get underway in a matter of weeks.The six-month project, which will provide employment for over 100 workers, will facilitate the construction of a new 20-inch transmission pipeline through Lucea, to allow water from the Great River Treatment Plant to better supply all areas along the corridor leading into Negril.The scope of work will include the replacement and installation of 6,000 meters of ductile iron transmission pipelines from Elgin Town to Ruseas and of 4,000 meters of distribution pipelines over the same area; construction of chambers and interconnections; and the supply of materials, meters, equipment and tools to repair and efficiently operate the system.The new pipeline network has been designed to maximize the quality of water being transferred and significant reduce loss due to leakage.Addressing participants at the ground breaking ceremony, Minister Pickersgill said that the project represents government’s commitment to employing the necessary technology and resources to monitor, model, map and manage the nation’s surface and groundwater resources “far better than we have ever done in our history”.He informed that the project will also involve a technical audit of the transfer and distribution network, to include flow measurements and leak detection to optimize the performance of the system.Upon completion, the project is expected to increase the reliability of water supply to the beneficiary communities, including Green Island, Lucea, Elgin Town, Kew, Clifton, Askenish, Dias, Cacoon, Middlesex and Medley.

The UN estimates that some 20 million people are believed to be affected in India, Nepal and Bangladesh in what is being described as the “worst flooding in living memory.” According to UNICEF, hundreds of thousands have lost their homes, possessions, livestock and fields and will have to begin their lives from scratch when flood waters recede.Among the most urgent needs are shelter and access to fresh water, food, emergency medical supplies and basic household items. Last Friday, the UN World Food Programme (WFP) said it is sending up to three months worth of emergency rations to some 60,000 flood victims in Nepal. However, given the number of families affected and the remoteness of the impacted areas, the agency estimates that it will need some $1.5 million to meet the basic food requirements of the flood victims in the Himalayan country.Severe weather during this year’s monsoon season has wreaked havoc across South Asia in recent weeks. In addition to those suffering in India, Nepal and Bangladesh, some two million people were affected by devastating flooding in Pakistan when Cyclone Yemyin struck the country in late June. 6 August 2007As monsoon rains continue to pound South Asia, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has warned that the sheer size and scale of the resulting floods, as well as the massive numbers of people affected, poses an “unprecedented challenge” for governments and aid agencies in their relief efforts. read more

OTTAWA — Dozens of experts are urging Canada to choose a surgical, sector-by-sector approach when it comes to expanding its trading relationship with China rather than a sweeping free trade deal that could risk provoking the United States, says a new report.The Public Policy Forum paper, to be released Thursday, lays out a suggested blueprint for Canadian policy-makers at a time when Ottawa has struggled in its efforts to deepen business ties with the Asian superpower.The study will also arrive after Canada recently agreed to a free trade pact with the U.S. and Mexico, a deal that includes a controversial new clause requiring the countries to notify each other if they enter into trade talks with a “non-market” economy.The clause makes no specific mention of China, but the provision is being widely viewed as an attempt by Washington to single out Beijing.Even with these new constraints, the report advises Canada to chase several targeted arrangements covering numerous sectors ranging from agri-food, to natural resources, to education.A more-focused approach was preferred by most of the experts consulted for the report — even before the North American trade deal and the clause were announced last week. Many of them believe it would help Canada avoid the long, complicated process of hammering out a far-reaching trade agreement with a country as complex as China.“We settled on a set of recommendations built off the foundation of sectoral agreements, rather than comprehensive free trade, as the best means for realizing quick and significant gains,” reads the report, which is based on input from more than 70 experts, including business executives, government officials, environmentalists, Sinologists and former prime ministers.“A sectoral approach also provides the benefit of creating a pathway to a more diversified and growing trade portfolio for Canada that does not run afoul of the virtual veto given to our North American trading partners.”The document, the culmination of consultations over the last 18 months, argues that Canada cannot afford to ignore China’s size and rapid growth.As an example, the report said in 2000 China made up just four per cent of the global economy compared to the U.S. share of 31 per cent. Today, China accounts for 15 per cent and the U.S. 24 per cent.Ottawa must engage with China if it’s truly focused on trade diversification and on moving away from its heavy dependence on the U.S. market, the study said.For instance, it noted that 75 per cent of Canada’s merchandise goods go to the U.S. In the United Kingdom, however, less than 50 per cent of its goods go to the European Union, which is about the same size of the American market.As Canada looks to diversify, Public Policy Forum President Edward Greenspon said the consultations argued Canada can do more business with China “in such a way that should not offend the United States.”Greenspon said in an interview that 4.3 per cent of Canada’s export basket goes to China. In comparison, he said 8.4 per cent of U.S. exports go to China, which means Canada could double its exports before its engaged at the same level as the U.S.“So, there’s room for growth without provocation,” he said.The document said a minority of the participants thought the sectoral approach was not ambitious enough. But they found common ground on many points.Beyond the sector-by-sector approach, the document offered about a dozen other recommendations for Canada in its engagement with China. Here are few:— Strike a new deal on a co-operation arrangement in areas of shared global interest, including environmental protection, climate change and the governance of international institutions.— Take steps to ensure more clarity, transparency and predictability when it comes to Canada’s foreign investment regime, including national security reviews.— “Radically raise Canada’s game” in understanding and interacting with China — for all levels of government, the business community, financial sector, civil society and higher education.— Direct infrastructure spending, including financing through the Canada Infrastructure Bank, to improve inadequate transport and port facilities on the Pacific coast because the country is squandering export opportunities for industries like agri-business, forestry and energy.Follow @AndyBlatchford on Twitter read more

From there he went on to work in a series of restaurants, including in Corsica for a number of years, and in 2009 decided to move to London to join friends.Mr Belanger started work at the Coq D’Agent in the City and was promoted to the role of head chef.His mother said she was “so very proud” of her hard working son, who enjoyed eating good food and relaxing with his friends.Originally from Angers, western France, he was drinking at the Boro Bistro when he was stabbed repeatedly in the chest.Chief Coroner Mark Lucraft QC told the court that despite being confronted by three knife-wielding attackers, he had “bravely fought back” before he was killed by “quite horrific injuries”.In a tribute from his family, his brother Julien described the sports fan as “a breath of fresh air”, and said “his eyes were full of dreams”.The family said: “Sebastien we will never forget you.

Christine Archibald (known as Chrissy) and Tyler Ferguson Remembering his “dark, deep and soft eyes”, his father said: “It’s 703 days since the events took place, 703 days where I missed Alexandre.”I’m present here as a desolated father who has lost a child in such circumstances, an inconsolable father who for 703 days has not been close to his son.”Mr Pigeard, a musician in the band Tanger, also questioned whether British authorities could have done more to prevent the rampage following the Westminster Bridge and Manchester Arena attacks.Kirsty BodenThe partner of Australian nurse Kirsty Boden, 28, who was killed as she ran towards the London Bridge terror attack in a selfless bid to save people, has told how he is still “in awe of her bravery”.In an emotional tribute, James Hodder said he was “completely floored” by Ms Boden, who was from the small town of Loxton, in South Australia, when she moved to London in 2013.”Despite me being a pasty, bumbling, British accountant, Kirsty fell in love with me and our love never stopped growing from the first summer in 2013,” he said.The couple moved to Hampstead, in north London, and Mr Hodder said: “We had a beautiful life there.

Mr Ferguson said they were “very much looking forward to spending the rest of our lives together and starting a family”.Ms Archibald’s father, Greg, told the inquest that social work was his daughter’s “calling”.She studied for a degree in social work before taking a job at a centre for drug addicts in Vancouver for three years, and then moved to the Netherlands.He told the Old Bailey: “Chrissy believed from the bottom of her soul that each and every person is worthy of respect.”The world has many sunshine people in it. Their smiles warm us.”Chrissy was not the sunshine, Chrissy was the moon. You might not notice the moon on a sunny day but you need the moon when it is dark to find your way.”The keen runner, who was a twin, was also an animal lover and was close to her family.Her father said: “She was shy and polite, gentle but determined, tall and beautiful.”Ms Archibald was killed by multiple, severe blunt crush injuries.Sara ZelenakAustralian au pair Sara Zelenak was on the “trip of a lifetime” when she was stabbed to death while on a night out with a friend, her family said. Sara Zelenak She told how she last saw the 32-year-old alive on her 30th birthday on 13 May, 2017 – and that two years later she was hearing evidence about his death.”You belong to the moon and stars now,” she said.”Rest in power, James.”Mr McMullan’s father, Simon, described his son as “funny, charming and clever” and said “his fearlessness could never be underestimated”.”Nothing seemed to faze him, but more than this James was a person who put his family above all else,” he said.”Our days and nights were enhanced by his presence and our lives were enriched by his essence,” he continued.”He was James McMullan – a friend, a son, an uncle, a brother, an inspiration and a maddening genius, a brilliant and beautiful paradox. Farewell James.”Alexandre PigeardFrench rock musician Philippe Pigeard paid tribute to his son Alexandre, 26, who was stabbed to death near London Bridge.The young waiter was stabbed in the neck near Borough Market’s Boro Bistro restaurant, where he had worked for nine months.Nicknamed “King of the Night”, Alexandre, from Caen, Normandy, had been living in London for just more than two years when he was killed. Mrs Wallace said she and her husband have since dedicated their lives to setting up “Sarz Sanctuary” to help other families to cope with grief.”I would love every victim’s family to come to Sarz Sanctuary who is here today and I would love to help them from the bottom of my heart,” she added.”At 10pm, her phone rang and (her friend) said ‘we have finished the rugby’ and she left the save haven of her hotel and into a terrorist attack,” her mother said.”She was stabbed to death.”Sebastien BelangerThe mother of chef Sebastien Belanger said she does not forgive the terrorists who “mutilated and killed him”.Emotional tributes to the 36-year-old were read to the inquest into his death at the Old Bailey, first by his brother Julien in French, before Gareth Patterson QC, who is representing six of the victims’ families, read statements in English.His mother Josiane Belanger said: “We miss him so much, his smile, his joie de vivre.”I do not forgive what they did to him. They mutilated and killed him.”The Old Bailey heard how he was “full of mischief” as a child, and did not particularly like school. “But I am so thankful for all the years we shared together and I will treasure those memories forever.” He was also awarded two Grand Cross medals, a Silver Medal and a Medal of Honour by the monarchy and police in Spain.Former Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has praised his ‘heroic and exemplary act’.Mr Echeverria’s sister Isabel said at the time: ‘My brother Ignacio tried to stop the terrorists and lost his life trying to save others’. He discovered his love of food when he started work as a butcher’s apprentice at the age of 16, something that he found physically challenging due to his slight build. Her mother, Julie Wallace, who was supported by Ms Zelenak’s stepfather, Mark Wallace, said her 21-year-old daughter had arrived in the UK on March 10 2017.The inquest heard that Ms Zelenak worked with Mr Wallace as a crane truck operator in Brisbane, wearing high-visibility clothing and a hard hat, teamed with “bright coloured red fingernails”, to save up for the “trip of a lifetime”.Her mother said: “Sarz was the happiest she had ever been: working, travelling, meeting new people, doing all the things a 21-year-old should do.”That was until June 3 2017 when our lives changed forever. On that fatal night, every sliding door slid for Sara to be in harm’s way. Ignacio Echeverria Reading an English translation, lawyer Dominic Adamson, representing the family, said an “adventure” to the Cote d’Ivoire gave Mr Thomas “the taste for travel” when he was 17.”He had a tremendous bond with his children,” he said.”They were the apple of his eye.”Mr Thomas’s family said he had a “zest for life”, describing him as “fearless, dynamic, unselfish, very hardworking” and “always positive”.”On June 3 2017, barbarians who can in no way be described as humans took his life an destroyed his family,” his father said.”With such an emotional shock we have been totally devastated in the way he has been taken from us.”We all feel lost and are experiencing a great void without Xavier. His children have lost everything upon which their lives are based and it’s very difficult to recover from that.”James McMullanEntrepreneur James McMullan had been out celebrating getting financial backing for his online education company on the night he was killed by terrorists in London.The dual British and Filipino from Brent, north-west London, was watching the Champions League final with friends in a pub, but was stabbed to death when he left to have a cigarette.His sister Melissa said he called their mother, who died months later, the previous morning. Ignacio was cycling to Whitechapel, east London, with the board on his back when he saw the atrocity unfold.He worked as a money laundering prevention analyst at HSBC bank in London.Colleagues also nicknamed him ‘The Spin Doctor’ because he could pull off a triple backflip.The victim was awarded a posthumous George Medal for bravery by the Queen as well as a High Commendation by the Met, British Transport Police and City of London Police. The 30-year-old was visiting the capital for a short trip while her partner, Tyler Ferguson, was in the UK for work.On the night of the attack in June 2017, the couple had been out for a “celebratory” dinner after he had a particularly successful day.Mr Ferguson said: “We decided to walk over London Bridge. At one point Chrissy stopped me out of nowhere, gave me a passionate kiss and told me she loved me.”Then the attack happened and Chrissy was killed.”The social worker died in her fiance’s arms.Mr Ferguson described his partner as “my everything” and said she was “the most caring human being that I have ever met”.”I love and still love Chrissy more than life itself. She was my angel. I can still feel her presence in the moon and know that she is always watching over me.”Ms Archibald’s engagement ring was lost in the aftermath of the atrocity, but later recovered from the bridge. Mr Ferguson now wears it on a chain around his neck. “He was excited, giddy. He told her how everything was going to be okay, that he was going to be able to look after her,” she said.

first_imgIt’s turning out to be a pretty rough month for the folks at Skype. First there was that whole major service outage that the service suffered during one it its busiest times of year. And now it seems that the VoIP provider may soon become illegal in the world’s most populous country.Communist Party-run paper The People’s Daily declared all Internet phone services not run by state sanctioned China Telecom and China Unicom to be illegal. The article stated that The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology is set to take Skype and other VoIPs out of commission in China.The Ministry reflected the statement in a recent announcement, “Currently, our ministry is working with relevant departments to focus on the crackdown on illegal VoIP [voice over internet protocol calls] and we are now appealing to the public for clues for illegal VoIP cases.”For now, Skype is currently available in the country. Said a spokeswoman, “Users in China currently can access Skype via TOM Online, our majority JV partner.

More than that?We often don’t give a thought to how many times a day – or week, never mind month or year – we throw something in the bin, be it for recycling or not.But followers of the Zero Waste movement could tell you exactly how many times they have put something in the bin over the last year, and exactly what it was. That’s because the most dedicated among them try to create a litre of waste or less a year. Source: Zero Waste HomeCalifornia-based French native Bea Johnson is the guru of the Zero Waste movement, and will be visiting Dublin on Monday evening to talk about her lifestyle. The author of the book and blog Zero Waste Home (which gets 251k pageviews a month), she travels around the world speaking about how she made the journey to living waste-free.With homes in some parts of the country set to be monitored for what they’re putting in their green bins – and people continuing to put non-recyclables in those very bins – we here in Ireland could learn a thing or two from her approach.During a chat with over Skype, Johnson spoke about why she doesn’t pay attention to her critics, why she and her family eat meat, and why living zero waste is the future.Journey to zero waste 36,380 Views The Johnson family (Bea, her husband, their two sons and a dog) live in Mill Valley, California. Over the past nine years, they’ve gradually transformed their home into a zero waste one: they have miniscule wardrobes; they use baking soda instead of toothpaste; they make the most of leftovers. Johnson even uses homemade make-up, such as cacao powder as blusher.Johnson says that the benefits of the zero waste lifestyle aren’t just environment, they are also financial – her family have saved 40% on their overall budget. But the process took time.“It takes a while to actually question every single item that you have in your home. In our case, we don’t even have a junk drawer,” says Johnson. “Everything has really been questioned and thought about.”Johnson decided to move towards being zero waste in 2008, after moving to an apartment with her family, downsizing, and realising how much better life was when it was simpler. She began to reassess what she owned, what she used, and what she threw away.“What was difficult was to find a system that works for us,” she says. So she came up with a system, and five principles behind her method: the Five Rs. These are Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rot – and it’s important to follow them in this exact order.Refuse means to refuse those plastic bags, plastic stirrers, free pens and hotel shampoo bottles, for example. It’s this step which can be particularly difficult, but it’s the one that Johnson says is most important.“When you’ve done things a certain way and you’ve been used to accepting things that are handed out to you, it actually takes some practice to learn to say no to these things” she says. Johnson’s shopping kit. Source: Zero Waste HomeReducing what you actually need means decluttering (which is somewhat in vogue, given the popularity of the Marie Kondo method in recent years), and sending the items to be sold second-hand.Reusing means swapping anything that is disposable for a reusable alternative, and buying second-hand.That means paper towels for rags, tissues for handkerchiefs, and a menstrual cup (like a Mooncup) or washable sanitary products instead of tampons. Even dental floss has a zero waste equivalent, says Johnson. (A company based in Germany does a compostable floss that costs €3.95 for 10m – it’s made from silk covered in beeswax. By comparison, most of the floss on the market costs under €2 for 25m but the floss cannot be composted and so creates plastic waste.)Just keep an open mind and embrace [it] – you kind of need a sense of humour sometimes. If you keep an open mind to the alternatives you will see they are solutions to everything.There’s also the need to create a “reusable kit” (that includes reusable kitchen items, bags, glass jars, etc) for when you go shopping, and then the need to find locations where you can buy things in bulk.Johnson admits that “even being open to those alternatives and finding them can be a challenge”, but for her it has been worth it. Bea Johnson with her family’s jar of rubbish. Source: Magda Trebert for Little-GreenfinityBulk livingWhile in California, where Johnson lives, it isn’t too difficult to buy products in bulk, the notion hasn’t quite caught on in Ireland yet. A cursory google for ‘bulk foods’ shows that what we typically understand by that is large orders – rather than loose products that can be measured out into the consumer’s own packaging.That’s probably why Johnson gets one email a week from someone saying they’ve opened a bulk food store after reading her book or hearing her talk.“Of course at first it takes time to find a system that works for you but then once you have that system in place, oh my gosh,” says Johnson. “It’s like a huge amount of time that you save, and then you just regret not having started earlier because you see your whole life as a waste of money, but also a waste of time.”Johnson and her family had to test out the zero waste lifestyle themselves, and then literally write the book on it. There was no guide out there already. That’s in part why Johnson has become a ‘guru’ or leader of the movement, with a significant social media following.On Instagram, for example, she shares with her 70,000 followers how she brings food with her wrapped in cotton bags, and even how her favourite way to find a hair tie is to pick one up off the street. ‘We’ve never pretended to be the greenest family’But being a leader also means dealing with criticism. That includes questions about the fact Johnson and her family are not vegan, given the environmental impact of consuming animal products.“We are very transparent, we share everything we know, everything we do,” says Johnson, pointing out that they’ve had multiple TV crews visit their home, some of whom rifled through her underwear basket.“I have nothing to hide. We have never pretended to try to be the greenest family on earth. Of course not. We can’t do that. We never pretended to try to do zero carbon, that’s completely impossible,” she says, pre-empting any questions about flying to countries like Ireland.We’ve been completely transparent about the things we have done, the things that have failed, the things… where we’ve had to find a balance.Regarding the vegetarian queries, she says: “We eat meat, we tried to eliminate it, it didn’t work for us, so instead of completely eliminating it, we are doing way less of it, and we’re purchasing something that is supporting a whole other set of practices than the meat that we used to buy before.”But in essence, Johnson isn’t too bothered about criticism. “We get highly criticised for some of the things we do, but we don’t care about the criticism,” she says. “Had I listened to the criticism, I would have never been able to launch this movement.” The home cleaning kit, which uses ingredients like vinegar and baking soda. Source: ZeroWasteHome.comConsumer powerJohnson is clear who she believes has the power when it comes to creating demand for zero waste: the consumer.On the subject of using a plastic bag, she says that saying ‘no thank you’ could have a greater impact than you might think.“Because when you accept it, you are creating a demand to make more,” says Johnson. “Every time you accept a free plastic bag it is a way for you to say ‘I love plastic bags and I dream of a world filled with them for my children’s future’. So more oil will be drawn from the ground to create a replacement.”Johnson fears that consumers are waiting for politicians and manufacturers to change things, instead of realising they could do something themselves.“They are just sitting back, saying ‘the waste issue is too big of an issue and I’m just one small consumer, what I do will not make a difference’. And I’m here to say the contrary,” states Johnson.When I got started, people were saying what you do doesn’t really matter, what really matters is what the politicians do and it’s what the manufacturers do and we’ve been able to prove the opposite.She suggests that if readers want to start to move towards a zero waste lifestyle, they start with saying no, and then move on to their home. Tackle one room at a time, and one area of that room at a time.Really question everything in that room. Go through one drawer at a time, one room at a time, one closet at a time, and question the true need and use for anything that is contained in that drawer, closet or room. ‘Hairy granola people’There can be many stereotypes around what zero waste devotees are like, and Johnson says she’s heard them all.“I actually get a lot of those, some people email me to tell me ‘when I read your article I thought these people are crazy, they probably live in the Boondocks, they probably don’t shave, they are hairy granola people’.”But as they see the way we live and they see that our life is actually based on voluntary simplicity… just by the way that we present it, just by showing the way we live we’ve given a face to this lifestyle. And some people have seen our interior and the way we live and are like ‘wow – if that’s what the zero waste lifestyle looks like, I want to do zero waste’.She says that misconceptions include that the lifestyle will cost more, and take more time.“But then as they do it and have an open mind and actually start doing it [they] see that it is the complete opposite,” says Johnson. Johnson (middle) and her family. Source: Stephanie RausserAs for Johnson’s sons, she says they’re not huge ambassadors for the zero waste lifestyle – not because they don’t believe in it, but because it’s so normalised for them it doesn’t occur to them to brag about it.“What they do brag about though is what we’ve been able to do as a family,” she says. “It’s really that life based on experiences instead of things, a life based on being instead of having, that’s actually what makes them different than other people and that’s really what they talk more about.”Johnson doesn’t know if her sons will carry on her zero waste legacy, but feels reassured that she’s given the skills to.Though she has made her living being a zero waste guru, Johnson says that that’s not why she does it.“In the end, even if we were not the face of zero waste we would still do zero waste. Because again we are not doing it just for the environmental aspects, we are doing it for the better life that we discovered.We discovered a life based on being instead of having. It’s a life based on experiences instead of things and once you have that vision, once you discover the great advantages of the lifestyle, you can’t go back. Because you fully see the old life as a waste of time and money and a life based on the wrong priorities.Bea Johnson will speak at Trinity College on Monday 13 March from 7 – 9pm in the Robert Emmet Theatre. The event is hosted by TCD’s Environmental Society and is free to attend. Sponsors include Etherson’s Butchers in Cabra, Honest2Goodness market in Glasnevin and Nuts in Bulk in Glasnevin, who all offer customers zero waste options.Read: 12,000 homes in Dublin will soon be monitored for what they’re putting in their green bins>Read: ‘Dead animals and concrete bricks’: One third of green bin collections can’t be recycled> Short URL Every time you accept a free plastic bag it is a way for you to say ‘I love plastic bags and I dream of a world filled with them for my children’s future’. – Bea Johnson Zero waste living: ‘You regret not starting earlier – you see your whole life as a waste of money and time’ We speak to the Zero Waste guru Bea Johnson, who visits Dublin on Monday.

first_imgA natural resources manager that has helped protect a Florida National Guard facility from encroachment and a partnership of federal agencies and conservation groups that has enhanced mission readiness at Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia have received the 2015 Nancy Natoli Élan Award for Innovation in Land Conservation from the U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities.Paul Catlett has helped protect more than 21,000 acres from development that threatened both the training mission at the Army National Guard’s Camp Blanding Joint Training Center and the rich diversity of habitats and wildlife in northeastern Florida, according to a press release. One project protected 1,600 acres of sandhills habitat preferred by the at-risk gopher tortoise, to which gopher tortoises may be relocated from Camp Blanding.The innovative partnerships forged by Catlett have resulted in his leveraging more than $51 million in state funds with $13.6 million in Army and DOD dollars.Along the Lower Rappahannock River in Virginia, the Rappahannock Land Protection Partnership has helped protect more than 20,000 acres. Those protected lands — an important Chesapeake Bay tributary recognized in national and regional natural resource conservation plans — benefit mission readiness at Fort A.P. Hill and wildlife conservation on Rappahannock River Valley National Wildlife Refuge, and helped establish the Mattaponi Wildlife Management Area.The effort’s principal partners include the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Nature Conservancy, the Trust for Public Land, the Conservation Fund, the Virginia Outdoors Foundation and Fort A.P. Hill.“All of the nominees for the 2015 Natoli Élan Award have achieved great success,” said Peter Stangel, senior vice president for the U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities, “but Paul Catlett and the diverse members of the Rappahannock Land Protection Partnership raise the bar for their tireless commitment to collaboration and effective leveraging of limited financial resources.”The award was named in honor of Nancy Natoli, who led DOD’s effort to protect military test and training facilities from incompatible development until she passed away in September 2013 at the age of 48. She had been the program director of the Readiness and Environmental Protection Integration program since February 2012, after serving as a program coordinator for the previous three years.

first_img ‘Black Mirror’ Star Miley Cyrus Says Her Episode Is ‘Dark’ and ‘Out There’Top Movie and TV Trailers You Might Have Missed This Week Stay on target Black Mirror is the kind of satire that doesn’t feel good to watch. It’s darkly funny at times, but each episode leaves you depressed about the state of the world and where it’s heading. Each episode is a brutal gut punch, but it’s sci-fi settings are so well thought out and smart, we keep coming back for more. And from the looks of this teaser Netflix just put out, that’s not going to change.It’s a simple teaser that doesn’t reveal much. All it gives us is six episode titles, and a brief shot from each. In some cases, that’s enough to give us an idea of what the episode will be about. For most of them, we can’t tell what’s going on. All we know for sure is, none of it looks pleasant.The clip of the first episode gives us the least to go on. Titled “Crocodile,” all it shows us is a woman driving out into the mountains, another woman’s face appearing on a screen, and a third woman looking scared out a window.  “Arkangel” is even more disturbing. After a brief image of a child getting something injected into her head, we see her mom opening up a new tablet. Then, we cut to the mom ripping a pencil out of her bloodied child’s hand. Yeesh. So this episode could be about one of two things based on that. It could be about tablets replacing paper to the point where traditional drawing is heavily discouraged, but that seems too simple for Black Mirror. Could something be speaking to her through whatever was injected into her head?The next episode is called “Hang the DJ” which looks like it could be a dark take on dating apps. “USS Callister” looks like Star Trek but without all that pesky optimism. “Metalhead” looks like it’s about an evil robot dog that looks a lot like the military robots being built right now. Just in case the actual state of the world wasn’t terrifying enough. Finally, there’s “Black Museum” which involves an electronic helmet and a button next to the bed that a woman’s boyfriend clearly didn’t intend to step on. What’s going on there? We have no idea, but we’re sure it isn’t good.Charlie Brooker’s dark satire series works because it shows us a future that’s entirely plausible. It takes our present anxieties about technology and extrapolates them to horrifying extremes. Even in that Star Trek-inspired episode, if that’s what it is, I’d be willing to bet it’s a much more accurate portrayal of what would happen if humans reached the stars. We’re kind of the worst, and will deserve whatever happens in that episode.This is the kind of mood Black Mirror puts you in. It has a bleak outlook on humanity’s future, and you can’t claim any of it’s implausible. It’s a show that’s hard to binge because each episode is so brutal, you need a break to lighten up after one or two episodes. It’s going to absolutely wreck us, and we can’t wait.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

first_imgConvincing a viewer to live the moments of happiness, ‘Exploring Lines’ attempts to reflect three experiential journeys of three distinct contemporary artists in shared space and time. Featuring works on paper and canvas expressed sensitively, exploring various media like charcoal, graphite, ink, oil and acrylics, the exhibition will compel one to see the beauty of life with a unique prism and step out of the indolence.The show attempts to perceive beyond the tangible and extract the finite out of the finite. The intent of the show is to present art that is cathartic and vivid, compelling the viewer to connect with the subtle imagery. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThoughts and emotions wander onto the surface in the form of meandering lines, both bold yet delicate, conveying sensitivity, confidence and dynamism. Literally and metaphorically, the ‘line’ serves as the artists’ fingerprint and tool for conveying feelings of space, form and expression.In her charcoal and graphite drawings, artist Gitanjali Kashyap uses the subtle symmetry generated by rhythmic movements in creation. Artist Neeraja Divate’s works are based on the underlying philosophy “Details create the big picture”. The work is textured as a result of pressed effect on an empty space in a determined direction with delicate strokes that bring to the forefront the concealed layers of one’s personality. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveContinuing on the same lines of thought, artist Ritu Mehra creates a textured surface on canvas, often with lines and marks that symbolize the infinite casual connections that make the microcosm of life. In a world where many artists think abstraction is only about colour and intensity of line, these three artists present deep dialogues into the dictates of abstraction’s inner realms. This is why texture is indeed vital and deeply fundamental to their act of creation.last_img read more
