Countys winery code matures ripens


first_img BATTLE GROUND — Last month, Clark County posted a “do not occupy” notice on the exterior of Rusty Grape Vineyard’s entrance door. If this sounds like déjà vu, it’s because several North County wineries received similar notices around the Christmas holiday in 2013. Jeremy Brown, owner of Rusty Grape Vineyard, discovered first-hand the power of the Internet when he posted a photo of the notice to his Facebook page. It was quickly visible on the timelines of 40,000 social media fans, leading people to believe that the winery, which opened in 2006, was closed for business.It turns out, however, that Rusty Grape never closed. According to Marty Snell, director of Clark County Community Development, a letter was sent to Rusty Grape and two other area wineries on Oct. 15 requesting that work for which permits had been issued be completed by Nov. 14. By the time the county reviewed whether work had been completed, the popular Thanksgiving wine tour weekend was looming and the county decided to wait until after the event to post the “do not occupy” notice. The notice was posted Dec. 8. Brown contacted the county with updated information, and it was determined that Rusty Grape had a permit with an expiration date of “Dec. 15-ish, so we pulled the ‘do not occupy’ because he said he’d do the work and he did,” Snell said said.The situation highlights growing pains in Clark County’s budding wine industry, tasking winery owners, neighbors and community development to come together to formulate a comprehensive wineries and tasting room plan based on a unique set of business practices.

32 do not feel supported when family is affected by cancer


first_imgJust under a third (32%) of employee respondents do not feel supported by their employer when a loved one is diagnosed with cancer, according to research by Axa PPP Healthcare.Its Love for the loved ones: how to support employees when cancer affects their family report, which surveyed 1,000 managers of employees who have had a family member diagnosed with cancer and 1,000 employees with a family member who has been diagnosed with cancer within the last five years, also found that 49% of manager respondents report that their organisation does not have a formal policy for employees caring for family members or dependents diagnosed with cancer.The research also found that more than a quarter (28%) of manager respondents take it upon themselves to offer flexible working to employees who are dealing with a cancer diagnosis in their home life.Chris Horlick (pictured), distribution director at Axa PPP healthcare, said: “When someone is diagnosed with cancer, focus rightly turns to that person’s health and wellbeing. But it’s also important to remember the impact the diagnosis can have on the sufferer’s family. In addition to the emotional impact, family members may find themselves facing a host of additional pressures and responsibilities.“Improvement in treatment is enabling many people affected by cancer to live longer lives with the disease held in check or even cured. While this is welcome, it means that the impact of having cancer in the family will continue to be felt for months and even years to come. There’s much that employers can do to support employees who find themselves in this situation. And, by doing this well, they’ll not only help employees through a difficult time, they’ll also help to maintain morale and productivity and retain valued employees.”last_img read more


Pikachu parade protests Japans coal power backing in cutest way possible


first_imgYou can’t say no to that face! 350.org/AC Dimatatac Do you care about the climate? Because Pikachu does! Well, the climate activists in giant inflatable Pikachu costumes do. They double-teamed the Japanese embassy in the Philippines’ capital on Tuesday, ahead of the annual G20 meeting Japan is preparing to host on Friday. It all coincides with the recent release of a sobering report into the continued support of the coal industry by G20 governments, despite the urgent need to cut carbon emissions.The figures, published this month in a report by the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), show at least $64 billion per year in government support goes into the coal industry, which is a sizable increase over recent years. Asian governments dominate subsidies given to the production and consumption of fossil fuels, with China, India and Japan giving the most, though Japan isn’t quite at the same level as the former two. It provided a yearly average of $5.2 billion in 2016 and 2017, while China contributed $19 billion and India $17.9 billion. The US, meanwhile, gave $2 billion.”To avoid dangerous climate change and make good on their commitments to end fossil fuel subsidies, the G20 must commit to rapidly ending their support for coal,” the ODI report reads.”They must also increase transparency by committing to conduct peer reviews of coal and other fossil fuel subsidies by 2020 and establish a regular process of tracking progress in ending subsidies and sharing the lessons learnt.”The numbers are disturbing to say the least after the representatives of major economies pledged to phase out fossil fuel subsidies a decade ago in efforts to combat global warming.The Pikachus in Manila are a local network of volunteers, known as 350.org Pilipinas, who’re supporting a grassroots climate movement in the country, according to Philstar. Donning costumes is one way to funnel the world’s attention into the climate crisis. Comment Share your voice Tagscenter_img 1 Culturelast_img read more


Texas Leads The Nation In Executions But Its Death Row Population Is


first_img Share Graphic by Todd WisemanThe number of inmates on Texas’ death row dropped again this year, continuing a decades-long trend.The decline is caused largely by fewer new death sentences and more reduced punishments in recent years, according to end-of-year reports released Thursday by groups critical of the death penalty in Texas and across the country. But Texas still held more executions than any other state.“Prosecutors, juries, judges, and the public are subjecting our state’s death penalty practices to unprecedented scrutiny,” said Kristin Houlé, executive director of the Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, in the release of the group’s annual report. “In an increasing number of cases, they are accepting alternatives to this flawed and irreversible punishment.”Kent Scheidegger, legal director of the Criminal Justice Legal Foundation, which has supported death penalty practices in legal cases throughout the country, said he agrees that the decline is partially due to shifting attitudes among jurors and prosecutors, but added that death sentences are also down because there has been a drop in the murder rate nationwide.“The support for the death penalty for the worst crimes remains strong,” he said.There are currently 234 inmates living with death sentences in Texas, according to the state’s prison system. That number has been dropping since 2003. The death row population peaked at 460 in 1999, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics.Here’s how the death row population has changed over the last year:Seven men were executed.The same number of men were put to death this year as in 2016, which had the fewest executions in two decades. But even with its relatively low number, Texas was still the state with the most executions in the country. This isn’t unusual given that the state has put to death nearly five times more individuals than any other state since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976, according to the Death Penalty Information Center.Texas accounted for 30 percent of the nation’s 23 executions in 2017. Arkansas was second in the country with four. Last year, Georgia put more people to death than Texas — the first time Texas hasn’t been responsible for the most executions since 2001.Four more men got cells on death row.One more person was sentenced to death this year than in 2015 and 2016, when only three men were handed the death penalty in each of those years.The number of new sentences, which ranged in the 20s and 30s each year in the early 2000s, dropped in 2005 after jurors were given the option to sentence convicts to life without the possibility of parole as an alternative to the death penalty. Before then, if a capital murder convict wasn’t sentenced to death, he or she would be eligible for parole after 40 years. About 10 people in Texas were sentenced each year after that until the additional decrease in 2015.Two men died while awaiting execution.Joseph Lave and Raymond Martinez both died this year before they were taken to the death chamber, even though they had had extended stays in prison. Lave passed away more than 22 years after his murder conviction, and Martinez had lived more than 30 years with a death sentence.Four men had their sentences changed from death to life in prison.Two U.S. Supreme Court decisions this year have so far resulted in the reduction of three death sentences to life in prison. The high court ruled against Texas in the death penalty cases of Duane Buck and Bobby Moore.Buck reached a plea agreement with Harris County prosecutors to change his death sentence to life in October after a February ruling by the court said his case was prejudiced by an expert trial witness who claimed Buck was more likely to be a future danger because he is black.In Moore’s case, the justices invalidated Texas’ method for determining if a death-sentenced inmate was intellectually disabled and therefore ineligible for execution. Though Moore’s case has yet to be resolved (Harris County has asked the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals to reduce his sentence to life), two other men on death row with intellectual disability claims received life sentences after the ruling.Another man this April received a new punishment hearing in a 1991 murder and pled guilty, landing four consecutive life sentences over the death penalty, according to the Texas death penalty report.Nine men narrowly escaped execution — for now.Executions were scheduled — then canceled — for nine men this year. Six were stopped by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals in light of pending appeals, and one was stopped by a federal court, the report said.One man, Larry Swearingen, evaded execution in November because of a clerical error, and convicted serial killer Anthony Shore’s death was postponed because prosecutors were concerned he would confess to the murder for which Swearingen was convicted.last_img read more


22000 People Agreed To Clean Toilets And Scoop Dog Poo For Free


first_imgStay on target To most people, the terms of service that pop up when they hop on free Wifi is nothing more than a speedbump. An annoyance that stands between them and the latest cat videos or /r/mildlyinteresting submissions.That’s precisely why public Wifi and analytics provider Purple decided to have a little fun with their TOS recently. They made a minor tweak, one that they were confident would go unnoticed by the vast majority of connectivity seekers who utilized Purple’s service.According to Purple, 22,000 people agreed to perform 1,000 hours of community service at the company’s discretion. Fortunate folks would have been giving hugs to cats and dogs. Others who weren’t quite so lucky could be tasked with picking up dog poo or scraping gum off sidewalks. Those who drew the short straw might have to clean the porta-johns at a local festival or clear sewer blockages by hand.Purple doesn’t actually plan to enforce the clause, of course. “We aren’t going to round up these individuals and ask them to don their rubber gloves and repay the community debt,” reads their blog post. It was mostly done in fun, but Purple wanted to prove a point, too: that people blindly click past terms of service and they really ought to take an interest.Especially in this case. Apart from telling its users what Purple plans to do with the data it gathers, they also missed the chance to take home a nice little prize. They left their prank terms up for a full two weeks, and only one person spotted it.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

One arrested for duping budding photographers of their cameras expensive equipment worth


first_imgKolkata: It was like a dream come true for budding photographer Subhadip Sarkar of Jadavgarh when he was offered to shoot for a leading magazine. He did not think twice before travelling to Puri with his expensive camera and other shooting equipment for the assignment. However, his trip soon turned into a nightmare while shooting on the beach on September 4 as all his equipment went missing.A man, who identified himself as Amitava Paul and claimed to be an associate of a leading magazine, had assigned Subhadip to click photographs of the Puri sea beach. He promised him a good price for his clicks to which he had readily agreed. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeHe had just gone for lunch keeping his camera equipment in the custody of Paul who had awarded him the assignment and when he returned, he found all his expensive shooting gear including his camera and laptop missing. Needless to say there was no trace of the person too.A devastated Subhadip immediately lodged a complaint with Puri police station and returned to Kolkata. He shared his experience on several WhatsApp groups and social media accounts and soon realised that several photographers like him had also been duped in a similar manner. They then reached Garfa police station and lodged a formal complaint.

However, one of the photographers gave us a snap where Paul was trying to hide his face with his hands. Although his face could not be seen properly we noticed a ring on his right-hand finger and a black rubber band on his left hand. It was through this clue that we managed to track the person,” an officer of Garfa police station said.He was arrested from a hotel in Gariahat in which he was hiding on Friday. The sleuths have learned that he had been using Amitava as his pseudo name to rob the photographers and sold off their expensive equipment in the black market. His original name is Nilesh Mondal and hails from East Midnapore.A raid at his residence led to the seizure of four laptops, two modern sophisticated cameras, many expensive lenses, handy recorders, six mobile phones, hard disks, memory cards, laptops etc. amounting to almost Rs 15 lakh.”We even found five false Aadhar cards, false voter and PAN cards,” a police officer said.last_img read more


Forestry commission says 17 fires this year Cancun Riviera Maya fire free


first_imgCancun, Q.R. — Firefighters with the National Forestry Commission say they have already battled 17 forest fires this season, adding that Cancun and Riviera Maya remain fire free.In the first three-and-a-half months of the year, the National Forestry Commission of Quintana Roo has taken on mother nature in an attempt to quash more than 1,400 hectares of fires. The fire commission says that a majority of the fires were the result of agricultural burning.Rafael León Negrete, manager of the National Forestry Commission in Quintana Roo, said that the fires that have battled so far this year have been accidental and there have not been any responsible arrests.He reports that a total of 1,484 hectares have burned from the result of 17 fires that have occurred in the municipalities of Othón P. Blanco, Tulum, Felipe Carrillo Puerto, Bacalar, Lázaro Cárdenas and Puerto Morelos.Of them, León Negrete says the largest were in the southern areas of the state in Othón P. Blanco with 88 hectares and Bacalar with 163 hectares that took the effort of 40 firefighters.“It will be a difficult season. We have a lot of work in the whole country, partners that are coordinating in all the regions, reinforcing the state control centers so that we can face what is expected.“Currently, we have an army of 21,000 fighters, including volunteers throughout the country who are well-trained in forest fires,” he said.According to last year’s statistics, the National Forestry Commission extinguished nearly 10,000 hectares of forest in the state of Quintana Roo, with nine of the state’s 11 municipalities reporting fires.The municipality with the most fires last year was Othón P. Blanco where 22 of the state’s 62 fires were reported.Alfredo Nolasco Morales, head of Fire Management with National Forestry Commission, indicated that the 2017 fire season was the third worst in Mexico along with the years of 1998 and 2011.“Oaxaca, Guerrero, Michoacán, Jalisco, Nayarit and Sinaloa, have been the most active states where we had 16 firefighter deaths and 32 civilian victims,” he said.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

March 22, 2013 — The Medical Imaging and Technology Alliance (MITA), Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed) and the Medical Device Manufacturers Association (MDMA) applauded the adoption of an amendment to the Fiscal Year 2014 Senate Budget Resolution that expresses support for repeal of the medical device tax. The amendment passed with 79 votes.”Momentum is clearly growing in Congress to repeal the medical device tax as senators continue to hear from their constituents that the impact is real — the tax is slowing economic growth and costing thousands of jobs,” said Gail Rodriguez, executive director of MITA. “MITA encourages Congress to prevent further job loss and protect essential research and development by promptly repealing this harmful tax.””Bipartisan majorities in both the House and Senate have now voted to repeal the device tax. The reasons behind mounting support to repeal the tax are clear: Across the country, this tax is cutting high-quality jobs and investments in tomorrow’s treatments and cures at companies large and small. We encourage leaders in Congress and the administration to seize on this momentum and act to repeal this harmful tax,” said Stephen J. Ubl, president and CEO of AdvaMed.”Every day innovators in this dynamic industry are looking at how to improve the quality of life for patients, and the medical device tax is standing in the way of progress and threatening America’s leadership position. While we have more work to do, MDMA applauds this important step towards ensuring that the United States remains the global leader in medical technology innovation,” said Mark Leahey, president and CEO of MDMA.The bipartisan amendment was introduced by Senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), with co-sponsorship from 21 senators, including Al Franken (D-MN), Pat Toomey (R-PA), Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), Richard Burr (R-NC), Robert Casey (D-PA), Dan Coats (R-IN), John Cornyn (R-TX), William Cowan (D-MA), Joe Donnelly (D-IN), Mike Enzi (R-WY), Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Kay Hagan (D-NC), John Hoeven (R-ND), Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Mike Lee (R-UT), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Rob Portman (R-OH), James Risch (R-ID), Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), John Thune (R-SD), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) and Roger Wicker (R-MS).The American medical technology industry is responsible for and supports nearly 2 million jobs, creating a growing trade surplus and developing the technology essential to advancing patient care in the United States and around the world. With the implementation of the medical device tax, manufacturers have paid an estimated $388,000,000 to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) so far this year, re-allocating funds that could otherwise be directed toward investment in job creation and research and development, the vendor organizations said.This legislative effort is the most recent since February 2013, when Hatch and Klobuchar introduced the “Medical Device Access and Innovation Protection Act,” which included bipartisan co-sponsorship for the first time.

Chilean students stage protests


first_imgBut the marches, which are often infiltrated by violent anarchist groups, also ended with clashes between police and hooded vandals. Police arrested 109 people, including 24 minors, and at least six police agents were injured.Student organizers estimated the crowd in the Chilean capital on Thursday at about 150,000 people. City officials said the number was closer to 80,000. Local media called it one of the largest marches in Santiago in more than two decades.The size of the protest showed the strength of the student movement in an election year, said student leader Camila Vallejo.“This symbolizes that the student and social movement didn’t go home and that that the movement is here to stay,” student leader Vallejo told local ADN radio.The protests began during the 2006-2010 government of Michelle Bachelet and grew into strikes and school takeovers that forced her to shuffle her Cabinet. Bachelet tried unsuccessfully to calm the movement by naming a committee to discuss student demands.The protests have turned into a bigger headache for President Sebastian Pinera, whose government is focusing a chunk of the 2013 budget on financing school loans at lower rates. Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project 5 treatments for adult scoliosis How Arizona is preparing the leader of the next generation But students say it’s not enough because the system is still fails them with poor public schools, expensive private universities, unprepared teachers and unaffordable loans.Chile’s higher education burden is the toughest of nearly any nation surveyed by the multi-nation Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, or the OECD. While families in Scandinavian countries pay less than 5 percent of the costs and U.S. families pay more than 40 percent, Chilean households must pay more than 75 percent from their own pockets. The government’s share has been enough to provide only the brightest and poorest students with scholarships and grants.Student leaders want to change the tax system so the rich pay more. They also want the state back in control of the mostly privatized public universities to ensure quality. They say change will come when the private sector is regulated and education is no longer a for-profit business.Bachelet, 62, returned last month to Chile following a two-year stint heading the U.N. women’s agency in New York. She has announced her presidential bid and says if she wins a second term in office, she will try to end for-profit education. Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Top Stories Sponsored Stories center_img Men’s health affects baby’s health too “I believe the education effort must be infinitely more integrating, more inclusive and take care of the quality, of the barriers that block access to financing, of the segregation,” Bachelet told the weekly newspaper The Clinic in an interview published on Thursday.“Chile is one of the most segregating countries when it comes to education,” said Bachelet, who is widely seen as the center-left’s opposition best hope of winning the election.Dueling visions of Chilean education emerged during Gen. Augusto Pinochet’s 1973-1990 dictatorship.Chile’s schools were free before Pinochet pushed privatization and ended central control and funding of primary and secondary schools. Public education in poorer districts suffered even as a voucher system directed billions of dollars in public funds to privately-run high schools.Many Chilean families bore these burdens for years before student activists gave them a voice.Although Bachelet’s popularity ratings remain high, many students remain skeptical of her promises after being disappointed when they failed to achieve deep reforms during her first term.Public Works Minister Laurence Golborne and former Defense Minister Andres Allamand are seen as front runners for the center-right ruling coalition in the presidential race.

SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) – Tens of thousands of students flooded the streets of Chile on Thursday in one of the largest demonstrations demanding free education.After two years of student marches that have paralyzed Chile’s major cities and generated expectations of change to a troubled system, the crisis over education reform remains a key electoral issue ahead of November’s presidential election.Thursday’s protests were mostly peaceful. Students waved flags, chanted slogans and danced in the streets in a festive atmosphere recalling the creative marches of 2011, when thousands dressed as superheroes, staged mass kiss-ins and danced like zombies to Michael Jackson’s `Thriller.’ Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenixlast_img

She told police she believed that Gooding, the Oscar-winning star of “Jerry Maguire,” was intoxicated at the time.Gooding was arrested four days later after turning himself in to police. He pleaded not guilty to forcible touching and sexual abuse charges at a night court arraignment and was released on his own recognizance after about six hours in police custody.A conviction in the New York case could put Gooding behind bars for up to a year.Heller contends the woman, who has not been identified by police or prosecutors, wanted revenge against Gooding after feeling rejected and rebuffed by him and his girlfriend, who asked her to leave them alone after spotting her following them around.Video obtained by TMZ that the website says is from inside the bar on the night in question appears to show Gooding putting his hand on or near a woman’s leg and breast as they sit on a couch with his girlfriend between them. Gooding is then seen pulling the woman’s hand to his lips, as if to kiss it, and leaning toward her before another man steps up and talks with them.Gooding’s girlfriend, Claudine De Niro, and a man seen approaching Gooding after the alleged incident said in affidavits filed with Heller’s dismissal motion that they did not see Gooding touch the woman’s breast.John Baeza, a retired NYPD sex crimes detective hired by Heller to analyze security video of the alleged incident, said in an affidavit accompanying the court papers that he studied the footage frame-by-frame and concluded that it does not show Gooding putting his hand on the accuser’s breast.Heller said the accuser initially told police she was “partying with Cuba Gooding Jr.” and claimed that Gooding groped her while she was handing him a glass of water, leading to a verbal dispute.None of that was true, Heller said, and the woman ended up revising her story. He said witnesses who disputed the groping allegations weren’t interviewed by police before Gooding’s arrest.Summarizing his argument, Heller wrote: “The interests of justice are SCREAMING OUT” for Gooding’s exoneration.__Follow Sisak at twitter.com/mikesisakMichael R.

the way she completes jumps with her arms over her head is almost a brag as if to say "These jumps were getting too boring I had to make them harder or Id fall asleep" Artistically shes so wonderfully expressive that she draws in the entire audience with a single movement You cant tear your eyes away from her Its not just that youre not checking your phone while she skates; Medvedeva makes you forget that you ever owned a phone In the Olympic short program Medvedeva skated flawlessly to the music of Chopin and set a new world record She must have breathed a huge sigh of relief "Surely THAT will keep the little jumping bean off my tail" It was like that moment in a Halloween film where Jamie Lee Curtis is certain that she has finally killed Michael Myers despite having absolutely no proof You can guess what happened next; Alina Zagitova set a new world record toppling Medvedevas by 131 points Now Medvedeva must come from behind to fulfill her destiny of winning By no means would I count her out She has more international experience than Zagitova and her program component scores are the gold standard Im very worried though because Medvedeva will be skating to Anna Karenina for her long program Im sweating over the idea that this music choice could be unintentionally symbolic if Medvedeva becomes a tragic Russian heroine herself crushed by an unstoppable oncoming force Okay that was a bit much Zagitova isnt a train But you get the point This could be a rough night for Medvedeva Read more: The Most Exciting Events to Watch Before the 2018 Winter Olympics End Alina Zagitova (Olympic Athletes from Russia) Alina Zagitova of Olympic Athlete from Russia competes in the Figure Skating Team Event on day three of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games at Gangneung Ice Arena in Gangneung South Korea on February 12 2018 Xin Li—Getty Images Alina Zagitova is peaking at the exact right moment And while Im trying my hardest not to make this Russian rivalry into an All About Eve narrative Alina isnt helping me out with her music choices She literally skated to a medley of Black Swan (the story of a ballerina driven mad by the threat of being usurped) and Moonlight (a movie that won Best Picture over the presumed frontrunner) The symbolism is right there Am I the only one seeing this or has my lust for strong female rivalries driven me mad Alinas short program broke the world record for a reason; her presentation was electric her jumps were fearless in every moment she was fully alive If you thought Zagitovas short program was impressive get ready for her free skate to Don Quixote Alina is pulling off a mathematical trick to increase her score that reminds me of something out of an Air Bud movie the flustered referee throwing his hands in the air while a dog slam dunks "Technically theres nothing against it in the rules" In skating a 10% bonus is added to the value of any jump that is completed in the second half of a program And this bonus has a valid reason; landing a jump on tired legs is way more difficult For years skaters have put jumps at the end of their programs to milk this bonus for more points But then Alina had the gall to come along and ask "What if I did ALL my jumps in the second half" Some call it an ugly way to arrange a program; others just call it unbalanced Zagitova essentially kills time with spins and footwork for the first two minutes of her program before launching into a non-stop jump-a-palooza at the halfway mark And it kind of.

some are slim rather than fat; and some are hairless while others bear what appear to be elaborate headdresses possibly reflecting clothing that prehistoric women actually wore Moreover during the Willendorf period male figurines many anatomically correct with penises and detailed facial features also appear frequently and occasional sculptures depict men and women side by side But beginning about 16000 years ago Gaudzinski-Windheuser told the audience the Willendorf style gave way to a new type of image belonging to the so-called "Gnnersdorf style" named after a site in Germany that features both figurines and engravings of a much more schematic stylized female form The Gnnersdorf females which are found throughout central and Western Europe are headless and sport smaller breasts although they usually have large protruding buttocks They were apparently meant to be viewed in profile as their features are only clear when seen from the side Engravings of these images on cave walls often depict scenes of a number of women together in groups possibly dancing Males are rarely depicted either in sculptures or in engravings Gaudzinski-Windheuser and Jris hypothesize that the Willendorf and Gnnersdorf styles express very different meanings The Willendorf figurines they argue represent the overall idea of femaleness but the emphasis is on individual women represented by the many differences among the figurines As a parallel Gaudzinski-Windheuser suggested that the cute and chubby fictional stars of the children’s TV show Teletubbies—Tinky Winky Po Laa-Laa and Dipsy—symbolize the common idea of a perfect child-friendly world and yet each Teletubby has their own individual personality (For example each is a different color and has a different symbol on its head) Such a symbolic system in which both individual and group identity were expressed simultaneously might have been suitable for the earliest modern humans who colonized Europe about 40000 years ago—and who probably lived in small close-knit groups especially as Ice Age glaciers spread across Europe and forced them to cluster together in warmer refugia she said In contrast the Gnnersdorf style arose near the end of the last Ice Age about 16000 years ago when the glaciers were retreating and human populations grew and expanded including into northern Europe The new abstract style of female figurine was much more standardized with little individual variation and could be made by nearly anyone as opposed to the great artistic skill it took to make a Willendorf statuette Gaudzinski-Windheuser told the meeting These later depictions which were unlikely to represent individual women were used for communication of commonly held ideas of "femaleness" across far-flung social networks in Europe which still needed to keep in touch to survive In this way she concluded the images helped to solidify a "communal identity" among widely dispersed human populations Some researchers at the meeting while cautioning that such interpretations are necessarily speculative say that the pair’s thesis has merit "I rate it highly" says Clive Gamble an archaeologist at the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom The figurines helped cement the social networks of expanding populations "whose insurance policy was having friends and relations over as big an area as possible" The change in styles from voluptuous to schematic females Gamble adds shows that "it’s not over" even after "the fat lady sings" Paul Pettitt an archaeologist at the Durham University in the United Kingdom agrees "Sabine and Olaf remind us" that prehistoric art could have "dramatically different" functions as conditions changed for human societies he says But Randall White an archaeologist at New York University in New York City says that he is "not a fan" of the hypothesis arguing that it oversimplifies the dichotomy between the two styles of female depictions which he thinks were not as clear-cut as the MONREPOS archaeologists claim The Delhi Police on Tuesday filed a chargesheet against four people for allegedly misbehaving and stalking Union minister Smriti Irani in 2017? the liberal-leaning late night host.

Villa at LissandraVilla@timeinccomMoscow: President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday said Russia would allow athletes to compete at the 2018 Winter Olympics under a neutral flag after the country was banned from the Games over a state-orchestrated doping programme File image of Russian President Vladimir Putin AP There had been speculation Moscow could boycott the Games entirely after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on Tuesday barred the country from competition over what its chief Thomas Bach described as Russia’s "unprecedented attack on the integrity of the Olympic Games and sport" Clean Russian athletes would be allowed to compete under an Olympic flag the IOC said "We will certainly not declare any boycott we will not prevent our Olympians from competing if they want to take part in a personal capacity" Putin said after a speech at an automobile plant in Nizhny Novgorod in which he announced he would run for a fourth presidential term next year "The final decision of course must be made by the Olympic team" he said Bach stated that he had "taken note" of Putin’s announcement the IOC president adding: "I hope and I’m confident that the clean Russian athletes will seize this opportunity to participate at the 2018 Winter Games to represent a new generation of clean athletes" For Putin the ban "looks like an absolutely staged and politically motivated decision" He repeated denials that any state sponsored doping programme had existed in Russia "I feel for those guys – I consider many of them friends rather than just acquaintances I really feel for them" he said of the athletes in the Russian team Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov earlier Wednesday cautioned against an "emotional" response to the ban Russian officials are expected to address the ban in a meeting next Tuesday Politicians and athletes earlier reacted with anger and disappointment to the IOC decision The head of Russia’s Olympic Committee Alexander Zhukov told the IOC that punishing clean athletes was "unjust and immoral" Russian media expressed regret at the decision while welcoming the possibility of some athletes participating in South Korea next year albeit under tight restrictions The IOC "chose one of the harshest options it was considering but still not the harshest of all" which would have been a total ban wrote Kommersant business daily "It’s very hard to take accusations and punishments But the fate of our athletes and preserving our place in the Olympic family is more important" wrote the Sport Express daily It slammed the decision as "very harsh and in some ways even humiliating for Russia" citing the life bans on attending the Games for ex-Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko now deputy prime minister "Can’t get by without Russia" the pro-Kremlin Izvestia daily headlined its front page stressing that "Russian Olympic athletes will defend the honour of the Motherland under any banner" Some top sports figures agreed with ice hockey forward Ilya Kovalchuk telling TASS state news agency: "We must go to the Olympics Refusing is surrender" Pole vault star Yelena Isinbayeva told TASS: "Addressing our athletes I want to say that they should absolutely not despair and should continue training for the games" ‘This is sport damn it’ Some politicians vented anger however "This is an absolute outrage" said the last Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev quoted by state RIA Novosti news agency "This is sport damn it" he added Nationalist politician Vladimir Zhirinovsky leader of the Liberal Democratic Party condemned the decision as "sporting racism political racism" Chechen strongman Ramzan Kadyrov writing on his Telegram social networking page warned that "not one athlete living in Chechnya will participate under a neutral flag" Olympic gold-medallist gymnast Svetlana Khorkina now a ruling party MP told Sport Express: "What have we come to Crushing our great country Russia No they won’t manage it Russia has an army nuclear weapons and great people" Pro-Kremlin media focused on discrediting Grigory Rodchenkov the whistleblower who gave evidence of a state-controlled doping programme in which he played a central role Rodchenkov has been living in hiding in the United States since lifting the lid on the intricate workings of a state-supported doping scheme at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi "Grigory Rodchenkov is the perfect traitor" wrote tabloid daily Komsomolskaya Pravda It said the IOC’s actions proved that "you can destroy a whole Olympic country on the basis of indirect evidence and a single witness who was under a criminal investigation and has been treated in a psychiatric hospital" Amsterdam: Dick Advocaat is stepping down as Netherlands coach after his team’s two friendly
