The production design was well thought out, the directing was sublime and the music worked very well with the cinematography. One aspect that really stood out (for me personally) was the editing by Duy N. Bui; using some excellent flashy techniques that never look gimmicky or out of place, the film is cut in such a way that it just raises the production to another level.Iridescence is a fantastic short film that totally deserves at least eight minutes of your time. It’s different and, when it’s done as well as this, that’s nothing but a good thing.” – Screen Critix“Iridescence is an incredible show of ability. The actors, or, rather, the dancers who act, truly personify the guiding emotions with which they wrestle over the course of this eight-minute short film.” – Hollywood North Magazine“Using excellent production design, a carefully crafted music score and skilled editing, IRIDESCENCE is a gripping artistic treatise about tolerance and family that you will be thinking about for quite awhile afterwards. It is beginning to play the festival circuit now and I highly recommend seeing it if you get the chance.” – Diamond in the RoughWith a couple laurels on hand, the Iridescence team is hoping for more to come and share this visually-entertaining well thought of short film.Check out the Trailer here: Advertisement Twitter Here are some of the reviews this film has acquired. Iridescence is currently making its round in the film festival circuit and hoping to have more.““Iridescence” successfully tackles a very tough and emotional topic about acceptance, ignorance, and misunderstanding and evokes very intense emotions about how absolutely impossible it can be to topple labels and hopefully maintain a semblance of humanity. “Iridescence” is a striking and moving experimental short worth seeking out, and I hope to see more from director Max Beauchamp in the future.” – Cinema-Crazed LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Login/Register With: Advertisement
TORONTO — The world’s worst garment industry accident had ripple effects beyond Bangladesh in 2013, as the fatal building collapse turned a lens on poor conditions endured by workers and brought fresh focus to production practices used to create affordable goods.More than 1,100 people died in the April 24 tragedy at the illegally constructed Rana Plaza. Items created for Canadian label Joe Fresh were among those manufactured on-site, but a number of other clothing makers were also housed in the complex.Joe Fresh brand owner Loblaw Companies Ltd. joined several retailers in signing a pact to improve fire and building safety in Bangladesh. In October, the company said it would provide short-term financial support to all workers or dependents of New Wave Style (which produced Joe Fresh items) and plans to join with British retailer Primark to provide financial assistance to workers of all retailers in the factory plaza.While there have been corporate reforms in the aftermath of the tragic incident, whether there will be a long-term impact on how consumers shop remains uncertain.Will industry change first and then consumers will just be buying stuff without even knowing it was made ethically? That seems to be more the way it’s going“Ultimately, what it’s going to come down to is that industry needs to make these changes so that consumers can still shop with the convenience and the ease that they’re used to — just knowing that the brands that they’re buying from have cleaned up their act — and that they’re making their clothes in an ethical environment,” said Kelly Drennan, founder of Fashion Takes Action, a Canadian non-profit focused on sustainability within the fashion industry.“It’s chicken and egg. Are consumers going to change the way they shop and then that’s going to dictate if industry changes? Or will industry change first and then consumers will just be buying stuff without even knowing it was made ethically? That seems to be more the way it’s going.”Bob Chant, senior vice-president of corporate affairs and communications for Loblaw, told The Canadian Press the company is moving ahead with short-term compensation plans and has plans for long-term compensation as well.Ethical Ocean general manager Jonathan Fishbein said coverage of the factory collapse has been able to help shoppers better understand how supply chains work.“I think people are going to start to realize where their products are actually coming from and the decision that they make to purchase those goods, how that has ripple effects across the world and across to real people,” said Fishbein, whose company is now part of online sustainable fashion retailer Modavanti.Paule Trudel Bellemare admitted she was already having concerns about where goods like clothing were being made when the factory collapse helped propel the issue front of mind.“It’s always when you see really graphic images or when you have that graphic image that’s now imprinted in your mind and in your imagination, it’s really more concrete. So definitely, I think it made everyone think about it.”The Laval, Que., resident said would love to buy more locally made goods. But as an artist without huge sums to spend, she said she can’t afford to buy items produced in North America all the time because it’s too expensive.Still, Trudel Bellemare is being more mindful in her consumption habits. When she does buy items at stores where goods are more affordable, she tries to select pieces with longevity which appear OK in terms of fabric quality.“I’m trying to buy really basic clothes in terms of style that will last me years and years and I won’t get tired of them as easily as if I was buying things that are maybe just sort of a fashion statement or something that’s just trendy this year or this season,” said Trudel Bellemare, a fashion and children’s illustrator.Drennan said there are many ways for people to be ethical in their wardrobe, like participating in clothing swaps and shopping secondhand. Ultimately, she believes consumers need to change their approach to fashion by “slowing down” and focusing on purchasing pieces of quality.“If you were going to spend $30, let’s say, every two weeks on something, why not wait, save it and spend $60 on one piece that’s going to actually last?” said Drennan, whose organization is hosting the World Ethical Apparel Roundtable in Toronto next March.“It’s this sort of retail therapy mentality that our society has where you feel better when you shop, you feel better when you buy something new. How about feeling better about buying something that was actually made ethically and feeling better and good about wearing something that was made in safe conditions where the workers were paid a living wage?”David Nitkin is president of EthicScan Canada, an ethics consultancy and corporate responsibility research house. Every four years, the organization produces a consumer guidebook addressing issues like ethical sourcing and trading and labour relations practices.Nitkin said he’s not as concerned about Canadian consumer response to the issue as he is to hearing labour rights advocates in Bangladesh, Pakistan and India who say there are no changes on the ground with respect to corruption practices, for example.He thinks the issue of the Rana Plaza collapse will have “sustaining legs” in terms of impact — but not in the manner that many may think.“From the consumer point of view, this is an animating issue, but consumers are fickle beasts,” Nitkin said.“In 1988, consumers that bought our guidebook were primarily interested in South Africa as an issue. In 1992, they were concerned about the environment. In 1996, they were concerned about women and diversity issues. And in each of those four-year periods, we will see different issues come to the fore.“Are consumers interested in ethical consuming? Yes,” he added.“ Will the Bangladesh issue and this particular collapse be the prominent issue relative to say, global warming or relative to say, terrorism? I don’t think we can forecast with any degree of certainty.”David Soberman, professor of marketing at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management, said as news of the collapse has gradually receded from the headlines, sales for brands like Joe Fresh and others linked to the incident have likely returned to normal. But what has permanently changed is something else: the public’s sensitivity to problems in terms of how goods are produced, he noted.“If you had a fire at a plant a year ago — so before this — where 10 people died, it would be reported in the news, it would have a bad effect, but it would not be that big of a deal, because unfortunately, there are factory fires everywhere in the world — including North America — where people get killed in those sorts of numbers,” said Soberman. “Now if you had a fire in Bangladesh where 10 people got killed, it would be in the headlines. This reflects the sensitivity in the public.“It means that even though it may not be having an effect on sales and brand choice right now, it also means that companies themselves are effectively walking on eggshells. They have to be extremely careful because the public will really react badly.”Drennan said they are in talks with the Canadian Standards Association about developing a system that would make sustainable fashion items more easily identifiable to consumers, such a special hangtag.Just as certifications have emerged for green and organic items, Fishbein said it’s just a “natural approach” that something similar will surface with respect to labour practices and other aspects of ethical consumerism.“As consumers get hungry for this type of information, yes, there are going to be things that help simplify it and summarize it for people to be easily digestible when they make a purchasing decision. And I think you can just look to the food movement, especially the organic and local food,” he said.“It’s going to happen in fashion — it’s just a matter of time.”
CALGARY — A former American ambassador to Canada says he is embarrassed by how the U.S. government handled the Keystone XL pipeline review.David Wilkins, who was ambassador during the presidency of George W. Bush, says there was no need to take seven years to announce a decision.U.S. President Barack Obama rejected the US$8-billion cross-border pipeline a week ago on the grounds it would neither help the U.S. economy nor its efforts to combat carbon emissions.Peter Foster: Trudeau’s Keystone baptism by fireWhat losing Keystone XL means for CanadaTransCanada Corp’s options for Keystone XL and what they’re worthWilkins, speaking at an energy summit hosted by the Economic Club of Canada in Calgary, says the best shot Keystone XL has at being resurrected is if there’s a Republican in the White House in 2017.The plain-spoken South Carolina native is now a partner at Nelson Mullins, Riley & Scarborough LLP, where he works on Canada-U.S. matters in the firm’s public policy and international law practice.U.S. lobbying database records show the firm had the Alberta government as a client at a time when the province was pushing hard to get Keystone XL approved.“Frankly, I was embarrassed by the way my government handled the whole thing. A seven-year delay. Absolutely unnecessary. That simply is not how you treat a friend, period,” said Wilkins. “This is a classic example of politics trumping good policy. President Obama chose politics, in my opinion.”© Thomson Reuters 2015
In a message delivered by UN Legal Counsel Hans Corell during a memorial service in Stockholm, Mr. Annan said, “You have gathered today to honour one of Sweden’s greatest and most beloved daughters. For the United Nations, Anna Lindh was in many ways also a family member.”The senseless and incomprehensible act that took her life a week ago was met with an outpouring of grief and disbelief in the whole international community. Today, the entire UN family stands with you – with Anna’s husband, children, friends and loved ones, and with all the people and Government of Sweden,” he stated. “Since her death, a sky of lead hangs over Sweden and the international community – but Anna leaves a legacy of light which sets a standard for us all,” the Secretary-General noted. “Her profound commitment to peace, justice, development and human rights embodied the very principles for which the United Nations stands.” Ms. Lindh was not only instrumental in defining and developing Sweden’s role in Europe and in the UN, she also worked to strengthen the relationship between the world body and the European Union, he noted. Reacting to the news of her death, Mr. Annan last week said Ms. Lindh was a strong ally who really “believed in what the United Nations stood for, and generally believed that countries have to work across borders and cooperate to get things done. And in fact, I think she was one of those unapologetic multilateralists, and we will miss her.”

The Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCR) urged the Bulgarian Government to improve living conditions at the Harmanli reception centre and establish a constructive dialogue with asylum-seekers staying there.The agency said that it is prepared to work with refugees and local authorities on diffusing tensions and improving living conditions in the centre. “While UNHCR does not in principle object to the return of people who have not been granted international protection, such returns should only take place if all procedural guarantees are fully respected, including access to a fair and efficient asylum procedure and to effective judicial review,” stated William Spindler, UNHCR spokesperson at today’s press briefing in Geneva. The agency also reports unsatisfying conditions at other reception centres and detention facilities in Bulgaria, including Elhovo detention facility, near the border with Turkey, which is occupied at 130 per cent of its capacity. According to Mr. Spindler, concerns over reception conditions remain unaddressed, causing tensions and has even leading to acts of vandalism. Overcrowded centres also raise concerns over sanitary conditions, and challenges on provision of medical care and medicine.
OSU coach Urban Meyer during the spring game on April 16 at Ohio Stadium. Credit: Lantern File PhotoCoach Urban Meyer has 29 preseason practices to get his Ohio State team ready to compete against top programs in the 2016 campaign. He has those 29 practices to award 16 open starting positions to many players who have yet to contribute much of anything in games.On Sunday, OSU is set to hold it’s annual media day where players and coaches from all disciplines will be available for questioning. Here are a few storylines going into media day.Saturday’s intrasquad scrimmageOSU held their first preseason scrimmage on Saturday at Coffey Road Fields following the team’s first two-a-day practice on Friday. Aside from drills, this was the first opportunity for the coaching staff to evaluate the players in a simulated game experience.“Because we are an inexperienced group and that’s the closest you have to a preseason game, you want to see who really responds when the lights come on,” said associate head coach and defensive coordinator Greg Schiano. Schiano mentioned junior Damon Webb and redshirt sophomore Malik Hooker as two guys ahead of the others “but not by much.” The intrasquad scrimmage may have given a better scope on the talent at the safety position as well as every other open spot.“You see a guy who really looks good but then under the game situation when they’re out there by themselves and they have to deal with a lot of different variables, can they handle it and stay focused?” Schiano said. “That’s what I’m looking for.”The August heat in Ohio can be brutal—not to mention running around in shoulder pads and a helmet—which makes the competition for those spots even tougher. But that’s the mentality Meyer and his coaching staff are trying to breed. “Our camp isn’t easy,” redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett said. “The main thing is grind it out. The hard times we have in camp right now are going to help us down the season.”Position battles gain clarityAfter the first day of camp on Aug. 7, Meyer said that in a week and around practices 12 and 13 are when he hopes to begin narrowing down jobs and announce starters.Sunday marks one week and eight practices completed for the Buckeyes, so there could be a few steps made toward finalizing a depth chart.“Next week we would like to start narrowing it,” Meyer said last week. “We have an idea of who’s going to play, but we have a lot of good players. By next week I’d like to give it to guys who earned it—announce them as starters.”Meyer said he likes to make a big deal out of announcing starters for the players and their families who he calls to inform them that their sons are going to be starters.Some of the closest battles are at safety, cornerback, right tackle and left guard.First chance to talk to four position groupsThe offensive line, wide receivers, cornerbacks and running backs all have at lea
Some people daydream about becoming professional baseball players. Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller daydream about being general managers. The two co-host the “Effectively Wild” podcast for Baseball Prospectus (Ben is also a writer for this site), and last summer they learned that one of their listeners was the media relations director for the Sonoma Stompers, an independent minor-league baseball team in California. Lindbergh and Miller floated the idea that the Stompers should let them act as general managers for the team, advising on player personnel and strategy. The Stompers bit.Their new book, “The Only Rule Is It Has To Work,” chronicles a summer spent trying out their weirdest analytics-driven ideas on the actual playing field.On this week’s What’s The Point, Ben Lindbergh discusses his summer with the Stompers, and the larger lessons about what it’s like to try to use data to change a team’s culture.Stream or download the full episode above, or subscribe using your favorite podcast app. Read an excerpt from the book here.

Ben Lindbergh: These players were far enough from the majors that they were willing to mix things up. Someone who is at AAA, one step from the big leagues, would’ve said, “I’ve gotten this far with what I’ve done, and I’m not willing to do something new.” But these guys were getting desperate enough that they were willing to listen.Jody Avirgan: That’s the key — you have to find a community that is desperate enough to listen to what you have to say. That’s actually the key to this podcast.But, what was your relationship with Sam [Miller] like? You host the podcast every day, I assume that you’re friends. Now all of a sudden you were thrust into a working relationship.Lindbergh: There was some tension. Usually we are separated by a continent and we get along just fine. But when we were in the same place, running this team and writing this book, we definitely had some philosophical differences.I remember on Opening Day I wanted to march into the manager’s office and say, “Here’s the batting order for today’s game.” Sam didn’t want to do that because he thought we would alienate the manager, and it would have a ripple effect, and we’d be fighting for the rest of the season. I thought we had to assert our authority [right away].Avirgan: And who won that battle?Lindbergh: I don’t know if there was a conclusive winner. Eventually Sam moved towards my side of the spectrum, but there were things he saved me from doing throughout the season.Avirgan: Overall, do you feel like this project was a success, not just in that it was fun … but in that it taught you larger lessons about the work that you’re going to continue to do?Lindbergh: I think it taught us about selling yourself, and storytelling. We probably could have packaged this book as “what baseball can teach us about business” or something, and sold a million more copies.Avirgan: You could have done a TED Talk!Lindbergh: Shoot, we should have done that. But, really — it is about management and finding a way to present your message to people who may or may not be receptive to it. You may have the spreadsheets, but don’t always show the spreadsheets. Make it fun and exciting.Take your conclusion, one that’s sound and driven by the data … but don’t always show your math. Know your audience. So we learned a lot about how to present our findings, and that can be applicable in any field. By Jody Avirgan

Ireland 23USA 1718 POINTS FROM Niamh Briggs got Ireland off to a winning start in Pool B of the Women’s Rugby World Cup.The UL fullback scored a try and kicked five out of six opportunities in a gritty fixture to give Ireland hope of making the semi-finals.Ailis Egan provided the only other score against the side ranked fifth in the world and a solid defensive display ensured that the US were restricted to two of their own tries but, crucially, just a single penalty. Briggs scores her try. Source: Dan Sheridan/INPHOThe US took the lead in the sixth minute, a well-worked line-out move giving possession to Lynelle Kugler and the openside was able to step out of the tackle and dot the ball over the try-line.Kimberly Rozier added the extras to make it a maximum score for the Eagles, but Ireland were allowed an instant opportunity to make it a one-point game and Briggs made no mistake with her second penalty.USA’s forward power brought them greater territory in the opening stages and after 20 minutes they looked to be in another try-scoring position until a brilliant collective effort choked up a US rolling maul. IRELAND: Niamh Briggs (UL Bohemians/Munster); Ashleigh Baxter (Belfast Harlequins/Ulster), Lynne Cantwell (Richmond/Exile), Grace Davitt (Cooke/Ulster), Alison Miller (Portlaoise/Connacht); Nora Stapleton (Old Belvedere/Leinster), Tania Rosser (Blackrock/Leinster); Fiona Coghlan (UL Bohemians/Leinster) (capt), Gillian Bourke (UL Bohemians/Munster), Ailis Egan (Old Belvedere/Leinster), Sophie Spence (Old Belvedere/Leinster), Marie Louise Reilly (Old Belvedere/Leinster), Siobhan Fleming (Tralee/Munster), Claire Molloy (Bristol/Connacht), Heather O’Brien (Highfield/Munster).Replacements: Sharon Lynch (Old Belvedere/Leinster), Fiona Hayes (UL Bohemians/Munster), Laura Guest (Highfield/Munster), Paula Fitzpatrick (St. Mary’s College/Leinster), Larissa Muldoon (Bristol/Exile), Jenny Murphy (Old Belvedere/Leinster), Jackie Shiels (Richmond/Exile).USA: Meya Bizer (Penn State WRFC); Vanesha McGee (New York RC), Akalaini ‘Bui’ Baravilala (Aliamanu All Blues), Emilie Bydwell (San Diego Surfers WRC), Sadie Anderson (Pennsylvania State University); Kimberly Rozier (Glendale Raptors RFC), Jocelyn Tseng (Berkeley All Blues WRC); Hope Rogers (Penn State WRFC), Kathryn Augustyn (Berkeley All Blues WRC), Jamie Burke (Glendale Raptors RFC), Carmen Farmer (Severn River RFC), Sarah Walsh (Berkeley All Blues WRC), Jillion Potter (Glendale Raptors RFC), Lynelle Kugler (Twin Cities Amazons WRC), Kate Daley (North Shore Chicago WRC) (capt).Replacements: Kittery Wagner (Glendale Raptors RFC), Sarah Chobot (Glendale Raptors RFC), Sarah Wilson (Glendale Raptors RFC), Sharon Blaney (Oregon Sports Union RC), Shaina Turley (San Diego Surfers WRC), Deven Owsiany (Unattached), Hannah Stolba (Glendale Raptors RFC).In pics: Ireland Women claim hard-fought win over USAKeith Wood among three Irish rugby greats to join IRB Hall of Fame In case you missed it, we also have the heaviest and tallest team in the tournament (USA) against the oldest. #wrwc2014— Scrumqueens #wrugby (@ScrumQueens) August 1, 2014 Source: Scrumqueens #wrugby/Twitter There were worrying signs for Ireland as their mis-firing scrum and line-out creaked under pressure. But as the half wore on they enjoyed more time in possession, attempting to stretch the US defence to allow Lynne Cantwell find a gap.The extended set of phases eventually took its toll on the US and the sin-binning of second row Sarah Walsh opened the door for Ireland to rumble in with minimal fuss off the back of a line-out leading to Egan’s score.The sides were evened up minutes later, however, Claire Molloy earning a yellow to allow Rozier narrow the gap, but Ireland had found a rhythm and another patient set of phases on the right flank ended with Briggs planting down a score which she got up to convert. Niamh Briggs in the dressing room pre-match. Source: Dan Sheridan/INPHOTrailing 20 – 10, the US started the second half even more powerfully than the first. And Walsh, the woman returning to restore them to the full compliment of 15, made all the difference as the lock trotted over with Irish tacklers complaining of obstruction.That score made for another ominous period of dominance for the US, with Ireland forced to call on all of their experience to thwart powerful and ball-carriers and Siobhan Fleming and Heather O’Brien leading the way in a ferocious breakdown contest.Ireland survived the onslaught. And the introduction of Jenny Murphy from the bench helped to stem the tide. Some powerful carries from the Leinster woman turn the US defence on its heels and forced a penalty which allowed Briggs to extend the lead to six.While the first half was incident-packed, the second was arm-wrestle with both sides knowing one wrong step would bring defeat. Ireland’s greater experience paid off in the end and they grew in stature as the clock ticked down, confidently attacking the right-hand channel late on to force another penalty for holding on.Briggs ended the game with her only missed kick of the day, but she had done more than enough for her side before that point came..Earlier today in Ireland’s Pool B, New Zealand put a tight grip on top spot as they ran up a score of 79 points against Kazakhstan.

Saturday 31 Aug 2019, 1:00 PM AS THE NEW school term begins, we’re trying to think beyond sandwiches so there’s a slightly more creative, healthy lunch for the lunchbox.One of the best things we ever did was to buy flasks for our kids to take hot lunches to school. You need a short stubby flask with a wide neck so they can eat directly from it, rather than having to pour the contents out.Once you have that basic piece of equipment, you have lots of options, and by batch cooking (if I’m organised I get it done on Sundays) you take all the hassle out of the mornings.Making lunches is then a simple matter of heating up the meal and pouring it into the flasks. If your kids are open to trying new things, sending them in to school with a hot meal steers them away from eating too much bread and gives them a nutritious meal during the day.Last winter, we sent our two to school with a variety of warming lunches – soups, stews (meat or veg, or both), casseroles and even pasta.One of my go-to recipes is the tomato-sauce based veg stew listed below called Ribollita (which literally means ‘reboiled’). When I can, I make huge pots of it, and it will last in the fridge all week or put in the freezer. It’s delicious, warming and loaded with healthy veg for the kids. You can add pretty much anything that’s seasonal, but I find that leeks, celery, carrots and finely chopped kale or spinach work great.If your kids don’t like it chunky you could always blitz it down to a finer consistency. A simple tomato sauce on pasta is a good one too.I steer clear of spaghetti – the messy face is not a good look at school – so smaller pasta like fusilli is better. At this time of the year, when they might not be in the mood for a hot lunch (particularly if we get the common back-to-school heatwave), a decent slice of an omelette or frittata goes down well with our kids. It is delicious cold.With the abundance of cucumber and tomatoes we have at the moment, they will also be getting the panzanella Tuscan bread and tomato salad in their lunch box in the coming weeks.Finally, thanks to programmes like Food Dudes, most kids are open to eating (or at least trying) veg sticks – so put some cucumber or carrot in their lunch box with some hummus for their raw vegetable fix.Finally, when it comes to the ultimate back-to-school treats, don’t forget Irish fruit – the Irish apple is back in season and the hedgerows are currently laden down with blackberries. Recipe 1 – PanzanellaTraditionally, panzanella was a cunning ploy to use up stale bread. In our house it’s a way to use up the ends of a sourdough loaf. The bread soaks and softens in the juice of your tomatoes.This recipe is from Felicity Cloake and it serves four. Ingredients 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced1 red pepper1 yellow pepper8 ripe tomatoes200g stale country bread4 tbsp white wine vinegar1 tbsp capers2 anchovies, finely chopped1 small clove of garlic, crushed6 tbsp extra virgin olive oilSmall bunch of fresh basil Directions Put the onion slices in a bowl of cold water with a pinch of salt and leave to soak for an hour.Blacken the peppers on a gas hob, or using a kitchen blowtorch, then put in a plastic bag or a bowl covered in cling film and leave for 20 minutes.Largely dice the tomatoes and place in a colander set over a bowl. Salt and leave to drain while you prepare the other ingredients.

How Ghana is acing its transition to mobile financial services Pattern RecognitionNot commonly recognized among the biometric technologies but widely used and gaining in popularity is the technique of behavior recording. These systems are computer programs that monitor particular behaviors like typing and purchasing to identify users.Credit card companies, for example, have records of your purchasing patterns. Any unusual purchases are flagged by a computer program and brought to the attention of a customer service representative who verifies the authenticity of the purchaser.They way you type – frequency of keystrokes and their duration – has been proven to be a very effective way to identify unauthorized users on computer networks.Internet sites you visit, programs and files you use and general work patterns can all be analyzed to prevent hackers from stealing sensitive information.The big advantages to this approach include low cost, high effectiveness and unobtrusive operation – most users are completely unaware of the software’s operation.ConclusionThe sharp increase in identity theft and the threat of terrorism combined with the falling prices of all biometric technologies, it’s predicted that the biometrics industry will explode as demand increases sharply in the next 3 to 5 years. Already many systems are in use and technology is improving to eliminate false positives that may have deterred buyers in the past.New inventions tend to cause backlash, but biometrics technologies, especially the clandestine ones, have provoked storms of protest from privacy groups and users. This may slow, but not stop rapid adoption. All experts agree more need to be done to address ethical and privacy concerns.Like the adoption of any new technology, there are many problems that still remain to be fully overcome, but the idea of an ID-less society is not far off. The sheer convenience, low cost and security are very attractive to businesses, governments and users alike.Who knows? One day you may be able to go about your business never having to present any form of artificial ID. Biometrics systems promise to make huge changes in the way we do business and identify ourselves. They also promise to invade our already beleaguered privacy and create a new breed of sophisticated criminals adept at hacking our biometric identities.Part 1, 2Copyright 2005 PhysOrg.com This document is subject to copyright.

This thought process comes from internalized homophobia and sexist attitudes towards penetration.Some seem to feel like, ‘Sure, I’m gay but at least I’m a top.’ This belief stems from residual shame after coming out, and the notion that traditionally masculine expressions of sexuality are somehow more valid.Luckily as I’ve gotten older and delved into more sexually liberated groups of gay people, I encounter less and less of this. But every now and then I’m reminded that there are plenty of people of all ages who still feel this way.Paint shamingLastly, I’d like to speak on a topic that I believe isn’t given enough attention within our community, and that’s paint shaming.For those of you who don’t know what ‘painting’ in this context is, it’s a slang term to describe when a bottom isn’t fully cleaned out and a little something is left on the top’s penis.Now, I personally think bottoms are made to upheld completely ridiculous standards, not only dietary wise but also supplementary! I’ve seen threads upon threads of tweets and Facebook statuses about what bottoms can do to make sure they have pristine anuses for their tops.Some people go to certain extremes as taking six fiber pills a day, using multiple Fleet enemas, and not eating for hours prior to a hookup. And while this humble top is no nutritionist, I can’t imagine that’s healthy.‘Collateral damage’I understand that most bottoms do this to feel less worried, more prepared, and cleaner, but as tops we have to stop demanding such perfection from bottoms.We must be more understanding if something goes wrong, and recognize how much labor and time bottoms put into their bodies (specifically their buttholes).They may say they do it for themselves, but we tops reap the fruits of their efforts either way, and we do not appreciate it enough.I have heard stories of tops kicking bottoms out after being painted, making a big deal about it, and causing further embarrassment to the bottom. It’s just not right. Tops should know what they sign up for, and if we can’t handle a little collateral damage we shouldn’t be playing the game to begin with.Listen, shit happens, and if we don’t start accepting that, and stop demanding perfection then I smell a bottom revolution in the near future. Watch them all stop douching because we couldn’t appreciate what we had. We need to cherish our bottoms for all that they put up with and do for us.Let’s recognize our top privilege and try and do better by them. It’s about time we checked ourselves.A version of this column first appeared on Killer and a Sweet Thang. Follow Rembrandt Duran on Twitter and Instagram. Main image: Model: Paul McNulty (@djpjm1).

Apparel: Dark Room – darkroomcollection.comSee alsoWhy I’m coming out to my family and the world as a submissive bottom There has been a long time understanding between ‘The Gays’ (the male gay community, that is) that we are divided into three main categories: top, bottom, and vers. There’s also vers top or vers bottom, but we won’t get into those specifics here.Throughout history it’s believed that we have coexisted, for the most part, in peace and harmony. Got a news tip?

New York gay sex club defends reduced entry price for topsWhy you can’t put rising rates of gonorrhea and syphilis just down to PrEPGrindr hookup couple get a HIV test – and one finds out he is positiveRead the full article on Gaystarnews: :https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/need-talk-top-privilege/ However, when you take a closer look, you’ll start to see underlying issues that separate us and how sexual positions can affect our lives in very real and impactful ways.Everything from Fleeting to poop shaming to HIV contraction rate, we start to see that we tops have a kind of privilege that our vers and bottom sisters do not have.STI RiskThe risk of contracting HIV and other STIs is significantly lower for tops, according to the Center for Disease Control in the US [Editor’s note: Risk varies greatly according to viral load, but the CDC gives an average of it being 13 times riskier for bottoms than tops.]Not only that, but tops have the distinct luxury of being able to identify symptoms of certain STIs more quickly than bottoms, allowing them to seek out treatment right away. It might take a bottom a formal diagnosis to know something’s wrong.TrustWhen a bottom isn’t on PrEP (a HIV preventive drug), a certain amount of responsibility and trust is placed with the top to not do things like remove the condom mid-sex and to be alert to any potential breaks in the prophylactic. ‘Stealthing’ is when your partner removes their condom during intercourse without telling you, opting for their personal pleasure over your safety.In my experience, this is a common practice within the gay community. Unfortunately, a bottom may not realize until after the fact.Social privilegesNext I want to talk about the social benefits a top is afforded, which might not be as medically provable, but we absolutely do see evidence of it in our community.While two tops or two bottoms can hook up with one another in several non-penetrative ways — and that’s completely valid — the most common perception of sex is believed to be penetrative, and between a top and a bottom (you might flip positions midway, but you get what I mean).Unfortunately, there are still many people who see bottoms’ promiscuity as something more shameful, dirty, or ‘slutty’ than that of tops. There seems to be different reasons people ‘bottom shame’ and, truthfully, all of them are dumb as hell.I’ve come across people who celebrate and cheer on my success on Grindr, and have even noticed that it makes me more desirable. Meanwhile, my bottom peers with a similar sexual resume get looked down upon for the same practices.There is a false sentiment that bottoms who engage in high levels of sexual activity or with many partners, have ‘loose holes’ which is simply untrue. If you are having anal sex and taking your time, using lube, and making sure everything is done at a proper pace, the asshole will remain tight.It’s only when the anus gets damaged that it loses its elasticity, which is mostly caused by tops who have no idea what they’re doing.One of the most despicable ways I’ve seen this attitude expressed is tops using bottoms’ STI contraction rates against them. Another is the old school way of looking at things we’ve unfortunately adopted from #TheStraights. This is that the ‘catcher’ is the weaker, more feminine one in the pairing.

Malaysia Airlines is first to adopt space-based alerting system for flight trackingSITAONAIR, Aireon and FlightAware today announced that Malaysia Airlines will be the first SITAONAIR airline customer to benefit from a revolutionary flight tracking partnership. Under the agreement, all Malaysia Airlines aircraft will have access to minute-by-minute, 100% global, flight tracking data, delivered by SITAONAIR’s AIRCOM® FlightTracker.This solution will enhance the existing SITAONAIR AIRCOM® FlightTracker by adding Aireon’s space-based Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) data to the existing data from FlightAware’s multiple global sources, complementing active Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP) Future Air Navigation System (FANS) activity data.By incorporating this data, Malaysia Airlines’ aircraft operations centre will receive real-time position updates of its airborne fleet globally. Aireon’s space-based ADS-B data will also resolve any existing data feed coverage gaps that remain, particularly over oceanic and remote airspace, where there is currently no surveillance. No new avionics or modifications are needed for aircraft to take advantage of this service.“Real-time global aircraft tracking has long been a goal of the aviation community,” said Captain Izham Ismail, Chief Operating Officer, Malaysia Airlines. “We are proud to be the first airline to adopt this solution using space-based ADS-B data as part of SITAONAIR’s AIRCOM® FlightTracker.”Paul Gibson, Portfolio Director, AIRCOM®, at SITAONAIR, said: “With the addition of the AireonSM data, via FlightAware, to SITAONAIR’s AIRCOM® FlightTracker, combined with our active monitoring and automated alerting capabilities, Malaysia Airlines will be at the cutting-edge of real-time flight-tracking technology. With access to up-to-the-minute reporting, Malaysia Airlines will know the location, heading, speed and altitude of all aircraft in its fleet, at all times, and be alerted of any exceptions.”In November 2016, Aireon, FlightAware and SITAONAIR announced a new partnership to deliver Aireon data via FlightAware to SITAONAIR customers. FlightAware provides a combination of global air traffic control data, aircraft datalink information and terrestrial ADS-B data through a secure streaming data feed. Once the Aireon system is operational, expected in 2018, airlines already using SITAONAIR’s AIRCOM® FlightTracker will automatically begin seeing the new Aireon data appear in their systems, without the need for costly modifications.“In addition to not requiring any new avionics or modifications to their aircraft, Malaysia Airlines will seamlessly gain real-time flight tracking ability of its fleet, even in areas where regional Air Navigation Service Providers do not have full surveillance,” said FlightAware Chief Executive Officer, Daniel Baker. “The result will be that Malaysia Airlines will have greater visibility of its aircraft’s exact location.”The Aireon service will be operational in 2018, shortly after the completion of the Iridium NEXT satellite constellation. On January 14, 2017, the first ten Iridium NEXT satellites carrying the Aireon ADS-B hosted payload were successfully launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. In total, the constellation will consist of 66 operational low-earth-orbit satellites providing global coverage. The service will also provide Air Navigation Service Providers with global aircraft surveillance capability, and is expected to help reduce fuel costs, increase safety and enable more efficient flight paths.
