Missouri leak prompts closure of parts of 2 oil pipelines

first_imgST. LOUIS (AP) — An oil leak near St. Louis prompted the closure of parts of two pipelines as crews work to determine the source, company officials and Missouri regulators said Thursday.The leak was discovered Wednesday near St. Charles, Missouri, about 30 miles (48 kilometers) northwest of St. Louis. TransCanada Corp.‘s Keystone pipeline and Enbridge Inc.’s Platte pipeline are among several that run through the area. Crews on Thursday were preparing excavation work to figure out where the leak originated.“The source of the release has not been fully determined, but it is apparent that it originated at either the TransCanada Keystone pipeline or the Enbridge pipeline; there is no visible release near the other pipelines,” Missouri Department of Natural Resources spokesman Brian Quinn said in an email.TransCanada spokesman Terry Cunha said in a statement that the Keystone pipeline was closed from Steele City, Nebraska, to Patoka, Illinois. Enbridge’s Platte pipeline was initially closed from Casper, Wyoming, to Wood River, Illinois. By Thursday, only the section from Salisbury, Missouri, to Wood River remained closed, a company spokesman said in an email. Both companies are based in Canada and have cleanup crews at the site.Officials don’t yet know how much oil leaked, but the DNR said it did not reach any waterways. Quinn said the spill was contained to an area of about 4,000 square feet (372 square meters).A St. Charles County spokeswoman said there did not appear to be any evacuations since the area near the leak is not heavily populated.The 30-inch (76-centimeter) diameter Keystone line and the 20-inch (51-centimeter) diameter Enbridge line are both buried about 8 feet (2.4 meters) below the surface, Quinn said.Shares of TransCanada and Enbridge both dropped about 1 percent.last_img read more

Tony Bennett Performs At Voices Against Violence Event

first_imgSinger Tony Bennett, who marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in Selma in 1965, performed at the “Realize the Dream” rally as part of the Voices Against Violence (VAV) campaign on Saturday, August 24th at the Lincoln Memorial.The rally was a part of the “National Action to Realize the Dream” march planned to continue the efforts begun 50 years ago when Dr. King gave his iconic “I Have a Dream” speech.Voices Against Violence (VAV), a campaign led by Tony Bennett, his son, Danny Bennett, and The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, was founded earlier this year to give voice to the overwhelming majority of Americans who support sensible gun reforms and use that voice to hold elected leaders accountable and create change. This week, VAV launched a groundbreaking new website designed to engage and amplify the voice of the American people to engage people at Saturday’s rally.The website, VoicesAgainstViolence.com, will engage the American population in a way that’s never been done before, by converting the public voice into a unique visual identity called a voice signature. Once users visit the site, they will say their name and recite a phrase of solidarity, “My voice matters.” The site will generate a unique voice signature in real time that users can share across the social web.“Dr. King’s humanitarian message of non-violence is as relevant and necessary today as it was 50 years ago. I share his dream that we need to do away with violence in all its forms, especially gun violence, and work towards mutual respect and understanding between citizens regardless of their race, religion or ethnic background,” commented Tony Bennett.“Fifty years ago Dr. Martin Luther King gathered with thousands of people to amplify their voices for change. We hope to continue to amplify the voice of the people, so politicians heed our call,” said Danny Bennett, a co-founder of Voices Against Violence.“Dr. King was one of the most powerful voices in history that inspired the voices of millions of Americans who spoke out for change. It is time for the American public once again to raise its voice, this time on the issue of the gun violence that is destroying our communities and our nation, and there is no more fitting place to start than on the 50thanniversary of the historic March On Washington,” said Dan Gross, President of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.While the impact of gun violence affects every community, African American children and teens are 17 times more likely to die from gun homicide than white youth, according to the latest statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And while African Americans make up 15 percent of youth in America, African Americans accounted for 45 percent of child and teen gun deaths in 2010, based on the most recent data available.VAV’s participation in the rally included a performance by Tony Bennett, honorary chair of the “Voices Against Violence” campaign, Dan Gross, President, Brady Campaign, and guest speakers that are victims of gun violence.last_img read more

After changing its name last year in an attempt to conceal its identity following damning press – the company operated under more than a dozen aliases, including Tohu-Bohu Productions and TBOS Live, according to one source – as of last week the Montréal-based commercial musical theatre company and its non-union affiliate TBOS & Co have taken down social media and web pages, fired all staff, and quietly ceased to exist.TRAGEDY ON TOURIt’s the question that crosses any touring performer’s mind when the stage manager misses a stop sign or forgets to check their blind spot. You grip the armrests and wonder, “what if we crashed?” A year ago today, the members of one Canadian production found out.After 18 days of the third leg of a cross-Canada tour and operating on just 6 hours of sleep, the cast and crew of A Forever Frozen Story set off for a 350km drive from Lloydminster to Athabasca, Alberta. Exhausted, all seven members of the cast are fast asleep in the van while an overworked, underslept stage manager is behind the wheel. Three hours into the drive, the stage manager dozes off. She wakes up to a cast member screaming her name and tries to swerve out of danger, but the van strikes the production’s set truck ahead and rolls over twice before crumpling into a ditch.

Chinas economic growth cools amid trade tensions

first_imgBEIJING, China – China’s economic growth slowed in the quarter ending in June, adding to challenges for Beijing as its tariff battle with Washington escalates.The world’s second-largest economy expanded by 6.7 per cent over a year earlier, down from the previous quarter’s 6.8 per cent, the government reported Monday.Key drivers of growth including spending on construction and other investments were weakening even before the dispute with Washington erupted. Forecasters have expected a slowdown since Beijing tightened lending controls last year to rein in surging debt.Growth was “generally stable” but “the uncertainties of the external environment are mounting,” said Mao Shengyong, a spokesman for the National Bureau of Statistics.Chinese leaders have expressed confidence their $12 trillion-a-year economy can survive the tariff war with U.S. President Donald Trump. Beijing is resisting American pressure to change industrial policies Washington says are based on stealing or pressuring foreign companies to hand over technology and might threaten U.S. industrial leadership.But forecasters said the downturn is likely to deepen as Beijing tightens financial controls and trade tensions worsen.“There are risks that Chinese growth will slow more abruptly,” Citigroup economists said in a report.Washington imposed an additional 25 per cent tariff on $34 billion of Chinese goods on July 6. Beijing retaliated with similar penalties on the same amount of U.S. imports. Washington fired back last week with a threat of 10 per cent tariffs on an additional $200 billion list of goods.Trade contributes less to China’s economic growth than it did a decade ago but still supports millions of jobs. Even though Trump’s first tariff hike didn’t take effect the current quarter, exporters say American orders started to fall off as early as April.More broadly, anxiety about tariffs “is already dampening business confidence and delaying investment,” said Louis Kuijs of Oxford Economics in a report.Unless the two sides restart negotiations, “the conflict will escalate further, with major economic implications for themselves and the global economy,” said Kuijs.Of greater concern than trade is “slowing domestic demand within China’s economy,” said Tom Rafferty of the Economist Intelligence Unit in a report.China is the No. 1 trading partner for its Asian neighbours and buys oil, iron ore and other raw materials from Australia, Brazil and elsewhere. Chinese consumers are an increasingly important market for food, clothes, electronics and other goods.Investment in factories, housing and other fixed assets decelerated in the latest quarter. It rose by 6 per cent in the first half, down 1.5 percentage points from the first quarter.Chinese leaders are in the midst of a marathon effort to encourage self-sustaining growth driven by domestic consumption and reduce reliance on exports and investment.Beijing has responded to previous downturns by flooding the state-dominated economy with credit. But that has swelled debt, prompting concerns about risks to the banking system. The ruling Communist Party has made controlling financial risks a priority this year, suggesting it will resist easing lending controls.Consumer spending has risen more slowly than planned, leaving economic growth dependent on debt-supported investment.Retail spending in June rose by 9 per cent over a year earlier, a half-percentage point higher than in May. The increase was driven by rapid growth in the sales of higher-end consumer goods such as cosmetics and audio-video equipment.Forecasters say if threatened tariff hikes by both sides are fully carried out, that could cut China’s 2019 growth by up to 0.3 percentage points.Mao, the statistics bureau spokesman, declined to say how much the dispute might hurt Chinese economic growth.“But generally speaking, trade frictions unilaterally started by U.S. will have an impact on the economy of both countries,” Mao said.last_img read more

DR Congo UN mission condemns killing of dozens of civilians in South

9 January 2012The United Nations peacekeeping mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) today strongly condemned attacks against civilians by members of an armed group in remote villages in South Kivu province last week, during which at least 45 people were killed. The UN Stabilization Mission in DRC (MONUSCO) said it had received reports that between Sunday and Wednesday last week, about 45 civilians were killed and at least 50 were wounded during a raid in South Kivu’s Shabunda territory by the fighters of the Forces Démocratiques de Libération du Rwanda (FDLR) in two attacks.The attacks are also believed to have resulted in the displacement of people, the mission said in a press release.On Thursday last week, MONUSCO and relief agencies organized an air evacuation of 13 severely injured civilians to the main hospital in the city of Bukavu. Another six critically wounded survivors were evacuated yesterday, the mission said, adding that the evacuees included seven children.The peacekeeping mission has stepped up air and ground patrols of the affected areas and is consulting with the national army over the deployment of more Government forces. The region is difficult to access because of its remoteness. An assessment mission will be sent as soon as security conditions allow.The mission stressed that it remains committed to the protection of civilians and urged the Government to bring perpetrators of the crimes against civilians to justice. read more

UN envoy strongly condemns latest Palestinian militant attacks in Israel

Terje Roed-Larsen, UN Special Co-ordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, urged the Authority to secure a ceasefire agreement from the groups who carried out the attacks – a suicide bombing in northern Israel today that killed a 63-year-old man and a shooting on a highway in central Israel on Tuesday that killed a seven-year-old girl. In a statement, Mr. Roed-Larsen emphasized “that all violence and terror must cease in order to give the Road Map a chance to finally bring a secure and lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians.” The Road Map peace plan, drawn up by the diplomatic Quartet – UN, United States, European Union and Russian Federation – calls for the Israelis and Palestinians to take a series of parallel and reciprocal steps culminating in two states living side by side in peace and security by 2005. read more

Resource expansion for Xstratas Peru copper

first_imgXstrata Copper has made an important resource expansion in its Las Bambas copper district and confirms a substantial mineral resource at the Antapaccay copper deposit, both in southern Peru. Antapaccay is 9 km from Xstrata Copper’s Tintaya copper mine. Since acquiring the project in August 2004, Xstrata Copper has drilled a total of 156,000 m at Las Bambas. Based on initial successes, the company plans to conduct a further 85,000 m of drilling in 2007, mainly on the initial three mineralized systems.Xstrata Copper Chief Executive Charlie Sartain: “The successful results of the 2006 exploration programme at Las Bambas, together with the publication of a substantial mineral resource so close to existing infrastructure at Tintaya, has confirmed southern Peru as a significant strategic region for Xstrata. The identification of one billion tonnes of combined mineral resources in the region at attractive grades, with substantial further exploration potential and a strong existing operating and infrastructure base, places us in an ideal position to pursue rapid, profitable growth in southern Peru.”The 2006 exploration programme at Las Bambas, which included 100,000 m of drilling, established an indicated and inferred resource of 508 Mt at 1.14% Cu using a 0.5% cut-off grade. This represents an increase of 69% over the mineral resource of 300 Mt at 1.1% Cu published in March 2006. In addition, the new resource includes estimated average grades for molybdenum of 220 ppm Mo and for gold of 0.11 g/t Au.Included in this mineral resource, which covers three mineralized systems (Chalcobamba, Ferrobamba and Sulfobamba), are 377 Mt grading 1.27% Cu, 214 ppm Mo and 0.13 g/t Au at the Ferrobamba deposit. Of this, 239 Mt at 1.36% Cu, 220 ppm Mo and 0.14 g/t Au is contained in skarn mineralization. “The presence of substantial volumes of high grade skarn-style copper mineralization, with significant grades of molybdenum and gold, supplemented with large, lower grade copper porphyry mineralization, confirms the significant potential of Las Bambas district,” Sartain said.Xstrata Copper acquired the Antapaccay copper-gold prospect through its acquisition of the Tintaya copper mine from BHP Billiton in June 2006. Historically more than 90,000 m have been drilled at Antapaccay, which consists of two adjacent mineral structures: Antapaccay North and Antapaccay South. Following detailed evaluation of work undertaken to date, Xstrata Copper has been able to establish a total mineral resource of 472 Mt at 0.74% Cu.“The Antapaccay deposit holds the potential to increase production and extend the life of our Tintaya assets, which are located only 9 km away,” commented Sartain. The Tintaya operations comprise an open pit, a processing plant producing copper concentrate, a heap leaching operation and a SX-EW plant producing copper cathodes and substantial transport and administrative infrastructure. The operation achieved record mining and mill processing rates during the second half of 2006. During 2007, Xstrata Copper will conduct 40,000 m of drilling to confirm and upgrade the Antapaccay resource as part of a prefeasibility study into the development of the project.last_img read more

MICROMINE establishes data connection between Geobank and portable XRF analysers

first_imgMining and exploration software major, MICROMINE has released new functionality specific to its geological data management solution, Geobank. To help exploration companies drive productivity and cost efficiencies MICROMINE has established a data connection between Geobank and portable geochemical analyser XRF machines. The company states: “This time-saving functionality allows MICROMINE clients to gain a rapid interpretation of a mineral’s properties while in the field. Geologists don’t have to wait for lab assay results to know what they are working with. Geobank is compatible with most leading XRF models and accepts XRF data in the popular .csv format. Geobank can be configured to the user’s specific XRF requirements.”Well known to IM readers, an XRF machine is a portable geochemical analyser designed for in-field mining and exploration uses. By scanning a sample, the XRF machine provides users with an immediate analysis of elements. The immediate identification of trends in mineralisation enhances the geologist’s ability to make on-the-spot decisions about geochem lines, drill targets, and sample inclusions or duplications. Steve Bastick, Geobank Operations Manager, explains “Information generated by the XRF machine can be seamlessly communicated to Geobank, which provides the ideal tool to manage and make sense of the vast quantity of data generated. Geobank brings all the benefits of laboratory-style QAQC to the XRF machine, and allows users to maximise their investment in the XRF. Geobank’s charting and graphic reporting capabilities provide a rapid visualization of the XRF data. Additionally, the centralization of data ensures that XRF results can be compared quickly and efficiently to the actual assay results once they are returned from the lab. Geobank’s QAQC tools enable users to provide increased relevance to XRF results included in announcements, building a stronger foundation for investor confidence. Operations can also reduce the amount of time before findings are communicated to the market.”MICROMINE and Olympus, manufacturer of the Innov-X Delta XRF machine, have collaboratively developed a ‘Geobank Export Template’ specific to Innov-X Delta XRF machines. This template simplifies the configuration process, saving time and effort. Todd Houlahan, Director, International Mining Group, Analytical Division, Olympus NDT, explains “Olympus and MICROMINE have been working towards the integration of our offerings for some time now. Because Portable XRF machines allow exploration and mining companies to collect far more geochemical data than traditional laboratory techniques, the effective management of this data is vitally important. Olympus is extremely proud to be innovating with MICROMINE and developing intuitive platforms which will benefit the industry.”last_img read more

Twoweekold karaoke app has 70k users and Lindsay Lohans a huge fan

first_img 16-year-old Greta Thunberg met with Obama and chided senators, saying they’re not trying hard enough to fight climate change 10 things in tech you need to know today See how smoggy downtown LA was the day before Trump is expected to demolish California’s attempts to tackle auto emissions China could be the biggest loser from the Saudi Arabia oil attack ALEC ANDRONIKOV, 29, has started and sold two companies, and he may have another hit on his hands. That’s if Lindsay Lohan has it her way.In 2005, Alex Andronikov quit his job on Wall Street. He moved to San Francisco and crashed on a friend’s couch with little more than a startup idea.Andronikov had worked in the telecommunications investment group at JPMorgan. He noticed voice search services, like 411 in the US, were a largely untapped market. In 2005, $6.5 billion worth of calls were made to 411. The average call cost $1.50, making it a $10 billion+ business.  Andronikov created inFreeDA, an advertising-sponsored directory that served relevant search results when people called for assistance.AT&T acquired inFreeDA in October 2006 and Andronikov began his next venture, MoVoxx. MoVoxx was a mobile advertising company backed by Khosla Ventures, First Round Capital, Greycroft and others. That company was also acquired, first by Adenyo and later Motricity for $100 million.Since then, Andronikov has moved back to New York. While angel investing, a new opportunity caught his eye.Record songs or rap for friends and strangersIn China, YY Group recently went public and it has a popular song sharing application. Three of the most watched shows on TV are singing competitions (The Voice, American Idol and X Factor). Andronikov wondered why a popular song sharing app hadn’t taken off in the United States, despite obvious demand.In early April, Andronikov and his co-founder Sergey Fedorov released an app called Just Sing It. The game resembles Draw Something, OMGPOP‘s popular Pictionary-like app which was acquired by Zynga for $180 million. It’s also similar to Instagram in that users can add filters to voice recordings. They can make their voice sound high or low, or even squeaky like a hamster.On Just Sing It, users can record songs or rap for friends and strangers. The singer can pick a music genre (R&B, Hip Hop, Dance, Country or Pop) and the lyrics show up, like a karaoke screen. The recipient then guesses which song is being sung. Andronikov thinks it will be a good way for friends to send funny-sounding messages to each other, for people to watch amusing displays of talent, and for serious singers to get found. Recordings can also be shared on social networks.Since April 4, about 70,000 people have downloaded Just Sing It and 400,000 recordings have been made. The app owes much of its quick growth to actress Lindsay Lohan who came across the app and tweeted its praises:Andronikov says his team didn’t pay for the endorsement, but now that they know she’s likes the app, they’re working with her team to “make the most of her being a fan.” Lohan has now tweeted seven times about Just Sing It, asking her 6 million followers to join in. The marketing move is working; on April 5 Just Sing It enjoyed Apple’s No. 1 Free App position.Having downloaded the app, and I’m not as infatuated with it as Lohan is. It’s not easy to record anything other than suggested songs, and I’m not a big fan of singing in public.The idea of filtering your voice is interesting, but other apps like Smule‘s I Am T Pain also let you record and alter your voice. If Just Sing It was more of a Snapchat experience, where you could say something in a funny voice and know it’d be permanently deleted, that’d be more appealing for self-conscious people like me.But for those who use are comfortable putting themselves out there, like Lohan, it seems addicting. Andronikov says his team is close to announcing a seed round in the next week or two.- Alyson Shontelllast_img read more

Thanks Carrier,” Trump tweeted last night, referring to the Indiana-based air conditioning company that announced the deal.The choice of Jean-Georges, a three-starred Michelin restaurant overlooking Central Park run by celebrity French chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten and popular with New York high society, was the clearest indication yet that Trump may select Romney as his chief diplomat.After the dinner, Romney offered words of praise for Trump that contrasted sharply with his past criticisms, saying he had been “impressed” by his acceptance speech and subsequent preparations for office, calling it “a wonderful evening.” Big day on Thursday for Indiana and the great workers of that wonderful state.We will keep our companies and jobs in the U.S. Thanks Carrier— Donald J.

Graham Dwyer takes case to the High Court over use of mobile

first_img A HIGH COURT action brought by convicted murderer Graham Dwyer against the Garda Commissioner and State over the use of mobile phone records in his trial will be heard in February 2018.Dwyer was charged in October 2013 with the murder of Elaine O’Hara and was convicted by a jury following a lengthy trial at the Central Criminal Court in March 2015.In his High Court proceedings  commenced in 2015 Dwyer claims certain provisions of the Communications (Retention of Data) Act 2011 breach his rights to privacy under the Constitution, the European Convention on Human Rights and the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union.The Directive underlying the 2011 Act was struck down by the European Court of Justice in 2015.He claims that the ECJ ruling means that Irish legislation implementing the directive was illegal and that data collected on his phone was also therefore invalid.Many requests for disclosure of mobile phone records were made under the relevant provisions of the 2011 Act by gardai investigating Elaine O’Hara’s murder and were granted by the relevant service providers. Phone data was also admitted into evidence during the trial.During Dwyer’s trial, his lawyers argued the mobile phone data was inadmissible as evidence but those arguments were rejected by the trial judge.The High Court proceedings are against the Garda Commissioner, Director of Public prosecutions, Ministers for Justice and Communications, Ireland and the Attorney General.The case was briefly mentioned before the Chancery Court this morning, when lawyers for Dwyer and the state applied for a hearing date.The hearing of the action, which is expected to take 6 to 8 days, was fixed for 20 February next.In his action, Cork-born Dwyer with an address in Foxrock in South Co Dublin seeks, if appropriate, damages and, if necessary, a reference of issues to the European Court of Justice.Following his conviction Dwyer for the murder of Elaine O’Hara the married architect was jailed for life and his appeal against conviction has yet to be heard.

first_img Spotify Making International Music A Bigger Deal spotify-making-international-music-bigger-priority The music streaming company wants to advance and promote more culturally diverse music, including music from the Arab, African, Indian and Latino diasporasJennifer VelezGRAMMYs Oct 3, 2018 – 6:09 pm We live in a digitally connected world and our music should be as eclectic and available as what we’re craving for lunch—whether it be Mexican, Italian or Chinese—Spotify argues. The streaming company’s latest initiative is to not only spotlight more international artists on the platform, but to advance and promote more culturally diverse music, including music from the Arab, African, Indian and Latino diasporas. Email Facebook Twitter center_img News The initiative emphasizes the people who live outside their homelands and continue to consume music from their culture. The Global Cultures initiative will feature expert-curated playlists with popular songs, new and old, from diasporic communities around the globe, beginning with some of the biggest diasporas around the world: Latino, Arab, African and Indian. Listeners can currently find the “LatinX” and “Desi” music “hubs” on Spotify. The Arab and African sections are coming soon.”We have launched numerous high-profile playlists and programs in the recent past, but Global Cultures is poised to become one of the most important things we are doing as a leader in the field of streaming audio,” said Spotify’s Head of Global Cultures Rocio Guerrero in a blog post on the company’s site.While you can already browse artists from foreign countries on the streaming platform—as long as they have a profile—Guerrero, who is from Spain, wants to bring more attention to international music to the highly English-language, “American made” saturated top-ranked hits in the U.S.Spotify is on to something. According to YouGov, an internet-based marking research and data analytics company, about half of Americans listen to music outside of the English language, with 52 percent of people saying that the music they listen to has lyrics in Spanish in it. At a global scale, Spotify states that 1 in 4 Spotify users around the world actively listen to an artist from outside their culture or country.”Diaspora people have different political views, different hobbies, different mindsets that come out in their music,” Guerrero said. “But they’re still connected to their communities. People are becoming more and more proud of their origins, and I think music might be one of the best ways to help them express that.”FAKE LOVE- BTSOne of the best current examples of music breaking barriers regardless of language in and out of diasporas is K-pop’s BTS. The South Korean band outlined how they feel when American audiences know the lyrics to every word of their songs during their visit to the GRAMMY Museum.”We have a lot of foreign artists, American pop stars, coming to Korea, and Korean audiences will sing along, but it’s very hard for them to sing along with all the lyrics and all the songs,” BTS’ Jungkook said. “So, when I see American audiences singing along to all of our songs, all of our lyrics, we can feel that they try really hard to learn our music, learn our lyrics, and we feel really thankful.”BTS is featured in Spotify’s Global X playlist, which they have launched with the initiative. The playlist features international, multicultural crossovers and can be found under the pop category. Guerrero defined a crossover as “a mix of different genres, a mix of languages, or it could be a song like ‘Despacito Remix’ that crosses over to the rest of the world.” Along with the playlist, is a vertical video for “Taki Taki,” featuring Selena Gomez, Cardi B, Ozuna and DJ Snake. Other than BTS, the playlist currently also features Luis Fonsi, Becky G and Iranian-Danish rapper Sivas. Artists like these contribute to a “multicultural array set to inspire listeners around the world,” the company wrote. The playlist will be regularly updated to expose listeners to new music overtime.READ: Dua Lipa To Zedd: International Artists Takeover LollapaloozaStream the Global X playlist here:Read more Spotify Is Making International Music A Bigger Priority last_img read more

Alaska ambassadors field questions from DC kids

first_imgFourth graders at Miner Elementary had lots of questions for their Alaskan visitors.Two students and a teacher from Girdwood, in the nation’s capital for the lighting of an Alaskan Christmas tree, acted as cultural ambassadors today, explaining all things Alaskan to a group of Washington school children.Download AudioMiner Elementary School is just two miles from the U.S. Capitol, but it’s in a neighborhood that doesn’t see many tourists. And the students at Miner don’t get to tour outside their city much. So it was a special event when three Alaskans walked in to Ms. Hicks’ 4th grade classThey are Nolan Quigley, a 7th grader at Girdwood School; Jack Hickox, a 4th grader at the same school; and Molly Hickox, who teaches fifth grade there.Molly Hickox participates in a Forest Service education program, and she thought it’d be a good idea to connect with a local classroom while they’re in Washington for the lighting of a tree cut from the Chugach National Forest. They showed the class a slideshow with maps to explain where the tree came from and how it travelled to D.C. The Washington kids though, were most interested in the pictures of Girdwood, and in animals.One child noticed that the Girdwood map showed a drawing of a bear right by where Nolan said his house was. Wasn’t Nolan scared?The Alaskans explained that sometimes recess is cancelled if there’s an animal on the playground, but they said maulings are rare. Hickox, the Girdwood teacher, explained the importance of wildlife safety rules and bear-proof garbage cans.“That’s why we spend a lot of time teaching everyone how to be safe around the animals. ThereStudents at Miner Elementary in Washington, D.C. post with Alaska visitors Jack Hickox and Nolan Quigley, on either side of the table.aren’t any animals that are out to get you,” she said. Most of the children reached their hands high, eager to ask questions. Ms. Hickox called on one, reading his name tag.“Do y’all ever ride on the bear or moose or something?”Jack and Nolan answered that question and dozens more. The Washington kids were fascinated by the last picture in the slideshow, of Jack on Mt. Alyeska.“That’s a picture of me skiing,” he said.The class  gasped at the picture of a boy in a helmet and goggles, holding his ski edges parallel to the fall line to pose for a photo, with Girdwood and Turnagain Arm below. The kids asked a lot about that.“I have a question about when Jack was skiing,” one girl asked. “Was that a class trip, or was that just on the weekend?”Jack and Nolan explained that they ski lots on weekends, and Fridays after school, even on special Thursday afternoons when Girdwood school lets out early so everybody can ski. After the presentation, some kids hung around the Alaskan boys with more questions. Others tried to fathom these animals they heard about.“I think a moose is as big as a deer,” one said.“Yeah, a deer. Or maybe a polar bear,” said another one. That drew a sharp rebuke.“No, not a polar bear! A polar bear is huge, girl!”Some thought it might be scary to go to Alaska.“I’d be afraid of a bear because if I didn’t know what to do for a bear, I would probably get eaten,” a girl said.The Washington 4th graders, though, think nothing of riding the subway or public bus by themselves. Some do it every morning, to get to school, and some bring siblings even younger on public transport. They said they couldn’t imagine why some Alaskans think big cities aren’t safe.“I don’t know why they would think it’s scary,” said one child. “Because, I mean, the city, it’s not scary because they don’t have dangerous stuff like bears. The city, it has mostly birds, cats, dogs and squirrels and stuff.”Off to the side of the classroom, Washington teacher Dianna Hicks was beaming. Hicks says she’s all about bridging the culture gaps.“I love to see different cultures together,” she said. “I love seeing the children enjoying each other, finding out that you may look different but we have things in common. I can see all of them are really enamored right now of Jack and Nolan. … So they’re learning about the world. I want them to see things outside D.C. because so many of my children don’t leave their neighborhoods.”A group called Choose Outdoors raised corporate contributions to bring the tree from Alaska to the Capitol. Sponsors, including Alaska Airlines, also covered the cost of the trip for the Girdwood trio.last_img read more

Time found to be fixed to terrain for Papua New Guinea tribe

first_imgIn interviewing many of the people that live in Gua, the researchers found that when asked questions about the past or the future, their responses were almost always relative to their position along the river. The past was downriver, the future was upriver, regardless of which direction the river happened to be flowing.Interestingly, the perspective of time changed for the villagers when inside their homes. There the past was represented by the doorway, and the future away from the door, which might seem counterintuitive until noting that for those that live in Gua, the doorway is always seen as downhill which is likely to promote drainage after rains; both water and time, flowing away when viewed from the vantage point of those sitting safely inside their homes. The Yupno people live in a village called Gua. There are no roads leading in or out and the only other people the villagers see are the occasional missionaries, researchers or governmental health workers. Thus, their way of life hasn’t changed much, as most of the rest of the world marched into what we now perceive as a very modern society. And because of that, the Yupno people have retained their own interpretation of time, and for them, it’s all about the river. And because of that, time for them can be construed as running straight, as it does for us westerners, but only where the river runs straight. Where it kinks, so too does time. Future is uphill; past is downhill. Image (c) [i]Cognition[/i], DOI:10.1016/j.cognition.2012.03.007 © 2012 Phys.Org Journal information: Cognition This document is subject to copyright.

More information: Contours of time: Topographic construals of past, present, and future in the Yupno valley of Papua New Guinea, Cognition, dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.cognition.2012.03.007AbstractTime, an everyday yet fundamentally abstract domain, is conceptualized in terms of space throughout the world’s cultures. Linguists and psychologists have presented evidence of a widespread pattern in which deictic time—past, present, and future—is construed along the front/back axis, a construal that is linear and ego-based. To investigate the universality of this pattern, we studied the construal of deictic time among the Yupno, an indigenous group from the mountains of Papua New Guinea, whose language makes extensive use of allocentric topographic (uphill/downhill) terms for describing spatial relations. We measured the pointing direction of Yupno speakers’ gestures—produced naturally and without prompting—as they explained common expressions related to the past, present, and future. Results show that the Yupno spontaneously construe deictic time spatially in terms of allocentric topography: the past is construed as downhill, the present as co-located with the speaker, and the future as uphill. Moreover, the Yupno construal is not linear, but exhibits a particular geometry that appears to reflect the local terrain. The findings shed light on how, our universal human embodiment notwithstanding, linguistic, cultural, and environmental pressures come to shape abstract concepts. Citation: Time found to be fixed to terrain for Papua New Guinea tribe (2012, June 4) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-06-terrain-papua-guinea-tribe.html (Phys.org) — For most of western history, people have assumed that what is true of “us” in most cases, must be true for “them,” i.e. other groups about which we may actually know little. One example is the concept of time. In virtually all western societies, people envision time in the same abstract way; as a line moving from the past, through us, and on into the future. We speak of back in the past, or moving forward into the future. And because our way of thinking about time is so ingrained in us it’s difficult to imagine that others might really see time in radically different ways. And yet, some do, as evidenced by a remote tribe of people currently living in Papua New Guinea. The Yupno, a team of researchers has found, relate time to the river that dominates their life. The past is water that has already flowed by, while the future is represented by its source, which for them, lies uphill. Rafael Núñeza, Kensy Cooperridera, D Doana and Jürg Wassmannb studied the Yupno and found, as they report in their paper published in Cognition, that some people living in circumstances far different than that seen in the western world, really do see time in a completely different way.
