Cheryl Thompson, assistant professor at Ryerson University and author of Beauty in a Box: Detangling the Roots of Canada’s Black Beauty Culture, talks race with Vanmala SubramaniamQ: I think many people who don’t necessarily think about issues from a racialized lens, have been having trouble understanding exactly why there’s been so much sustained outrage over Justin Trudeau painting his face black, even after he apologized. Can you unpack the history behind why what he did was so offensive and hurtful?A: The minstrel show, or minstrelsy really originates in the 1830s and 1840s in the north of the U.S., we’re talking about New York, Boston, Philadelphia. It was a theatrical performance where white actors with black paint on their faces would depict the racial relations between African Americans living in the plantation south and those living in the industrialized north. So it was really commenting on the tensions at that particular time in often a demeaning and derogatory way. The depictions were negative — a black person in the south would be portrayed as lazy, for instance. You can see how those stereotypes have trickled into our culture based on the history of minstrel depictions of black folk.Q: I’ve been trying to understand why some people find wearing black or brown face, and even donning ethnic garbs so entertaining.A: The more you are removed from a group of people, the more you don’t know them and you only know their caricature. Minstrel shows were started by white men of status, sons of fairly wealthy people in the north of the U.S. They didn’t know many black people but for traveling south on the train and witnessing certain kinds of behaviours and thinking, “Hey that’s how they act.” That’s why it is funny, because it corresponds to all the things they have seen.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below. Opinion: On multiple occasions, Trudeau felt it was comical to imitate people of colour. That’s astonishing NP View: Trudeau’s racist acts mean Liberals must decide what they stand for Trudeau addresses blackface scandal again, says he ‘hurt people who thought I was an ally’ Q: But right now though, where is that comedic element from?A: Look, the buffoon acting black male on a TV show, if you’re not surrounded by black people, if you didn’t have them in your community you will have no way of knowing that that is actually a caricature, that we don’t act that way. You are then going to take what you know of racialized people from film and media as a representation of what they actually are. That’s why, in my estimate, this fascination with portraying people of colour in costume is about distance from the community. You generally do not see working class white people who live amongst black people doing these things.Q: I want to discuss white privilege because its a term that’s unfortunately become very controversial and loaded. First of all, for those who don’t quite understand the term: what is white privilege?A: That’s a hard question. But there are a few kinds of it. The first most obvious kind is being raised with societal privileges that benefit white people over non-whites. So perhaps you have expectations that you deserve something because you’ve known what it is like to not instantly get it. A more subtle form is being able to play ignorance to things and expecting people to not judge you. Having the privilege to not know something. I mean, we talk about this example a lot but mass shootings in the U.S. are committed predominantly by white males. But there’s never a crisis in white masculinity because of that. Whereas if a black males shoots up a place, there is an immediate hysteria of “what is going on with black people”. That’s a privilege we are not afforded.Micro-aggressions are just as damaging as someone beating you upQ: How do you approach this tension between white people from low-income families, having experienced systemic inequities themselves feeling slighted from being called “privileged”?A: I’m not denying your truth. But one of the privileges of being white, regardless of class, is that you can always identify as an individual, you never have to claim to be part of a group. I can’t show up at work and say, “I’m Cheryl, just call me Cheryl.” It would be… but you’re black. There would be a reminder. Whereas white people can show up and just be, say “Joanne.” Just an individual.Q: Some people of colour I know are really not offended by what Trudeau did. They get that it was probably a dumb thing to do, but they’re moving on. What do you make of that?A: Yes that is very common and unsurprising. I’m not speaking for all people of colour but it is common because you can accept your subordination and accept that this is part of life. What I mean is, on an emotional level perhaps, they haven’t gotten to a point where they pay attention to affliction. The focus is on nobody physically targeting me. But micro-aggressions are just as damaging as someone beating you up and calling you a racial epithet. That’s where people’s awareness needs to get better. Words matter.Q: I’ve had people tell me, “Look, I forgive Trudeau, he was just ignorant.” How would you respond to this sentiment around ignorance being an excuse of sorts for racism?A: Being ignorant is a serious thing. When a person or a population is ignorant, it leads to mass genocides. I’m not sure why that term is perceived as neutral. Being ignorant is dangerous.

“What started as a crisis in Ukraine, is now also a crisis over Ukraine. From the beginning, my objective has been to seek a peaceful and diplomatic solution to the crisis, in keeping with the fundamental principles of the United Nations Charter,” Mr. Ban told reporters following his briefing to the Security Council on his recent travels. The UN chief, on the road since 20 March, paid official visits to the capitals of both Ukraine and Russia, and also attended Nuclear Security Summit in The Hague, the Netherlands, and visited Greenland’s Ilulissat Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On the Ukraine crisis, Mr. Ban said he had “strongly urged the Russian and Ukrainian leaders to de-escalate the situation, avoid hasty actions and immediately engage in direct and constructive dialogue to resolve all the problems.” Answering a reporter’s question on Russia’s intent to send troops into southern and eastern Ukraine, the Secretary-General said President Vladimir Putin assured him that he had no such intention. “I have been really trying to urge both parties to de-escalate the situation. Emotions were running high, as you will agree, and tensions have been very highly charged. Therefore, my immediate priority was to urge…the leaders of both [countries] to engage in direct dialogue,” said Mr. Ban. “Now is the time for dialogue and peace,” he stated, adding that the UN will continue its efforts to find a solution to the Crimean crisis through diplomacy and the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission, which has been on the ground in the region for nearly two weeks. Mr. Ban expressed concern over the divisions that this crisis in creating among the international community, fearing it could “harm our ability to address other pressing concerns, conflicts and humanitarian emergencies.” Citing Ukraine, Syria and the Central African Republic as some of the most important issues in need of resolution, the UN chief said: “I have also urged Members of the Security Council to address these issues as soon as possible, because there are so many, much more longer-term issues like the Millennium Development Goals, sustainable development and climate change.” Regarding his visit to Greenland, the Secretary-General said: “I was able to see for myself again the impact of climate change phenomenon. The icebergs and glaciers are melting rapidly. Having personally been to Antarctica, the North Pole, and Iceland, Mr. Ban noted that Greenland’s Ilulissat Icefjord “is the fastest moving glacier in the world,” and, while he admires the people of Greenland’s ability to live harmoniously with nature, the effects of global warming – melting glaciers, extreme weather patterns and rising sea levels – are starting to “seriously threaten” their livelihoods. Mr. Ban called on all world leaders to come to his 23 September climate change summit with “strong political will.” As for the Nuclear Security Summit, the Secretary-General said that he had joined other world leaders in The Hague in highlighting the need for vigilance regarding the risk of nuclear terrorism. “International cooperation will be crucial not only in avoiding the proliferation of nuclear materials, but also in advancing nuclear disarmament – the best guarantee against this threat,” he declared.
Adopting a Presidential Statement during a formal meeting this morning, the 15-nation body welcomed the adoption of regional frameworks to implement resolution 1325 (2000) on ‘women, peace and security,’ including the African Union’s Gender, Peace and Security Programme 2015-2020. It also welcomed the efforts of Member States in developing national action plans.The Council also emphasized the importance of undertaking a comprehensive approach, and reaffirmed the substantial link between women’s meaningful involvement in efforts to prevent, resolve and rebuild from conflict and the effectiveness and long-term sustainability of those efforts.It also reiterated its call to increase the equal participation, representation and full involvement of women in preventive diplomacy and all related decision-making processes.By the text, the Council acknowledged the positive impact that the economic empowerment of women could have on their full participation in political decision-making and peace and security efforts, and called upon Member States to provide better occupational skills training and greater funding for entrepreneurships for African women.It encouraged Member States to increase their funding on women, peace and security, particularly for conflict and post-conflict situations, and to provide further support to civil society.
Gano Forum general secretary Mostafa Mohsin Montu briefs newsmen after a meeting of Jatiya Oikya Front in Dhanmondi on Friday. Photo: Ashraful AlamNewly forged Jatiya Oikya Front in a meeting on Friday vowed to hold its rally in Sylhet on 24 October if the permission was denied again.“The meeting decided that the Oikya Front leaders will go to Sylhet on 24 October even if they are not allowed to hold their rally,” UNB quoted Gano Forum general secretary Mostafa Mohsin Montu as saying.He briefed newsmen after a meeting of senior leaders of the new alliance. The meeting that began around 4pm at Oikya Front and Nagorik Oikya leader Mobarak Hossain’s Dhanmondi residence continued for nearly three hours.He said they hope the government will give them permission within a day or two to hold the public rally.”We’d sought permission for holding our rally in Sylhet on 23 October, but the government didn’t permit us. We’ve now decided to hold the programme on 24 October,” Montu pointed out.He said senior Oikya Front leaders will offer fateha at the shrines of Hazrat Shahjalal (R) and Shah Paran (R) and at the grave of General MAG Osmani, the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces during the War of Liberation, in Sylhet on 24 October, and then hold the public rally in the city.Oikya Front leaders will go to Chattogram on 27 October and hold a rally there the same day, Montu said adding they have already sought permission from the authorities concerned to hold the rally in Chattogram city.Before going to Chattogram, he said, they will exchange views with different professionals in the capital on 26 October.The Oikya Front leader said the meeting also formed a coordination committee and a steering one of the alliance.Two leaders of each Oikya Front components are kept there in the coordination committee while the steering one was formed with the top most leaders of all parties, Montu added.BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, standing committee members Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain and Moudud Ahmed, JSD vice-president Tania Rob, general secretary Abdul Malek Ratan, Nagorik Oikya convener Mahmudur Rahman Manna, Gano Forum executive president Subrata Chowdhury, Zafrullah Chowdhury and former vice-president of Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (DUCSU) Sultan Mohammad Mansur Ahmed were present at the meeting.On 13 October, BNP together with Kama Hossain-led Jatiya Oikya Prokriya, JSD and Nagorik Oikya launched the Jatiy Oikyafront to press for their seven-point demand, including holding the next polls under a non-party administration.

Before joining the Snapchat maker, Vollero had been working for 15 years in finance roles at Mattel.The replacement of Vollero with Stone comes after Snap had been struggling for months with lower-than-expected user growth numbers and a declining share price. These problems also manifested themselves in the company’s most recent Q1 2018 earnings report, which showed anemic user growth, to the tune of 4 million for the quarter.Following those results, Snap’s stock cratered 17%. At the close of the markets, Snap shares traded for $10.74 on Monday, down more than 50% from a 12-month high a year ago.Monday’s news was greeted with muted optimism by investors, who sent the stock up just 1% in after-hours trading.Some of their hesitation may be explained by the fact that much of Snap’s problems seem to be structural and product-related. The company rolled out an ambitious redesign earlier this year that was supposed to make the service more accessible to new users, but ended up causing an uproar with Snap’s existing user base.All the while, Facebook has been rapidly growing Instagram, a key competitor to Snapchat. Instagram reached 500 million daily active users last summer, while Snapchat has been stuck below 200 million daily active users.CNBC was first to report the news of Vollero’s replacement Monday. Snap is swapping out its CFO: The corporate owner of Snapchat is replacing its current CFO Drew Vollero with Tim Stone, a longtime Amazon executive.The company announced the news in a regulatory filing Monday, stating that it had come to an agreement with Vollero on Friday and that he would continue to serve until May 15.“I am deeply grateful for Drew and his many contributions to the growth of Snap,” Snap CEO Evan Spiegel said in a statement relayed in the filing. “He has done an amazing job as Snap’s first CFO, building a strong team and helping to guide us through our transition to becoming a public company. The discipline that he has brought to our business will serve us well into the future. We wish Drew continued success and all the best.”On May 16, Stone will take over as the new CFO of the company. Stone had been working in various roles at Amazon since 1998. He most recently served as the company’s VP of finance, and before that had served as the company’s VP of physical stores.
Global warming led to atmospheric hydrogen sulfide and permian extinction © 2010 PhysOrg.com Explore further (PhysOrg.com) — Micha Ruhl and colleagues from the University of Copenhagen’s Nordic Center for Earth Evolution have published a paper in Science where they contend that the mass extinction that occurred at the end of the Triassic period, was due to a “sudden” increase in the amount of methane in the atmosphere due to the effects of global warning that resulted from the spewing of carbon dioxide from volcanoes. Citation: Paleoecologists suggest mass extinction due to huge methane release (2011, July 22) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-07-paleoecologists-mass-extinction-due-huge.html More information: Atmospheric Carbon Injection Linked to End-Triassic Mass Extinction, Science 22 July 2011: Vol. 333 no. 6041 pp. 430-434 DOI:10.1126/science.1204255ABSTRACTThe end-Triassic mass extinction (~201.4 million years ago), marked by terrestrial ecosystem turnover and up to ~50% loss in marine biodiversity, has been attributed to intensified volcanic activity during the break-up of Pangaea. Here, we present compound-specific carbon-isotope data of long-chain n-alkanes derived from waxes of land plants, showing a ~8.5 per mil negative excursion, coincident with the extinction interval. These data indicate strong carbon-13 depletion of the end-Triassic atmosphere, within only 10,000 to 20,000 years. The magnitude and rate of this carbon-cycle disruption can be explained by the injection of at least ~12 × 103 gigatons of isotopically depleted carbon as methane into the atmosphere. Concurrent vegetation changes reflect strong warming and an enhanced hydrological cycle. Hence, end-Triassic events are robustly linked to methane-derived massive carbon release and associated climate change. Prior to this research, most scientists have believed that the sudden extinction of nearly half of all life forms on the planet was due solely to the emissions from volcanic eruptions that were occurring in what was to become the Atlantic Ocean. Ruhl et al contend that instead, what happened, was that the small amount of atmospheric heating that occurred due to the exhaust from the volcanoes, caused the oceans to warm as well, leading to the melting of ice crystals at the bottom of the sea that were holding on to methane created by the millions of years of decomposing sea life. When the ice crystals melted, methane was released, which in turn caused the planet to warm even more, which led to more methane release in a chain reaction, that Ruhl says, was the real reason for the mass extinction that led to the next phase in world history, the rise of dinosaurs. Ruhl and his team base their assertions on studies they’ve made of the isotopes of carbon in plants (found in what is now the Austrian Alps) that existed during the period before the mass extinction. In so doing they found two different types of carbons and the molecules that were produced during that time frame. After extensive calculations, Ruhl and his team came to the conclusion that some 12,000 gigatons of methane would have had to have been pumped into the atmosphere to account for the differences in the isotopes; something the team believes could only have happened if the methane were to come from the sea floor.This new research, though dire sounding, may or may not have implications for modern Earth. While it is true that humans have pumped significant amounts of carbon into the atmosphere, amounts that are approaching what Ruhl and his team say led to the earlier methane release, it doesn’t necessarily mean we are on the same path, because as Ruhl points out, things are much different today, the very structure of the planet has changed so much that it would be impossible to transfer what might have been learned about events in Earth’s history 200 million years ago, to what is going on today. This wide angle view of the Earth is centered on the Atlantic Ocean between South America and Africa. This document is subject to copyright.

Jerry Jones has always been known as a “player’s owner” since taking over the Cowboys. His door is always open for his players for anything, and he is always there for his guys, present, past, or retired. Jones recently made a comment that he wanted to do whatever he can to make Tony Romo feel like a part of the team’s potential championship run, presumably by playing him at some point.Colin thinks Jones shouldn’t be making any decisions based on Romo’s feelings, or their friendship, he should only be concerned with making moves in the interest of winning football games and the Super Bowl. Jerry didn’t get to where he is because he’s great at being a friend, he got there by being a good businessman. He should stick to what he does best, business.“Tony had his run. Tony got hurt. Dak came in. Dak is great. Get back to football, and get back to business, because that’s what Jerry Jones is unbelievable at.”Colin has been vocal of his distrust of the media. They hyperbolize everything for ratings and clicks whether it’s the presidential election or sports. They’re more interested in building a narrative than honestly assessing the situation. A perfect example of this is the narrative that Thursday Night Football games are unwatchable, terrible football.It’s a nice soundbite, unfortunately, it’s not true. The reality, based on statistics, is that quarterbacks have a higher completion percentage and passer rating in Thursday night games, there are fewer penalties, and typically they’re divisional games, which are more interesting. These are all key components to what most consider “a good watch.” This week the Raiders are playing the Chiefs in a game that could decide the AFC West, and have implications for home-field advantage in the playoffs. Colin can’t wait to watch it with some nachos.“We are overly criticizing, from Y2k, Rio Olympics. Over-dramatizing. This Thursday night game is gonna be a really good football game. It’s gonna have playoff implications, and you’re gonna have two really good quarterbacks.”The Red Sox traded for White Sox ace Chris Sale. Yankees GM Brian Cashman lamented that the Red Sox overloaded starting rotation with Sale makes them the Golden State Warriors of baseball. While Cashman isn’t thrilled about the trade, Colin couldn’t be happier.Sale is one of the top starters in the AL, and it’s a win for baseball that he’s heading to the Red Sox and Boston’s major media market. Colin has always said that the biggest sports brands should have the biggest stars, and that’s exactly what this move does. The Red Sox gave up top prospects to make the trade, but prospects rarely pan out, and Colin is always in favor of unloading prospects to get stars in their prime, especially dominant starting pitchers like Sale.“This is a big win for the Red Sox. Don’t worry about minor league prospects. You have the best pitching staff in baseball.”Guests:Peter Schrager – Fox Sports NFL Insider joins the show to discuss the inside story behind Cam Newton’s benching, what it means going forward for Ron Rivera and the Panthers, if Jeff Fisher could still be fired despite signing a contract extension, if there’s concern that Carson Wentz is regressing, if Doug Pederson could be on the hot seat in Philly, and why the Cowboys shouldn’t sit Dak down the stretch.Chris Broussard – FS1 NBA Insider is in-studio to defend Russell Westbrook against Colin’s relentless criticism, explain why playmakers make turnovers, and why Colin’s theory that there is an NBA Illuminati made up of agents and shoe companies that control NBA player movement is ridiculous.Eric Mangini – Former NFL head coach is in-studio to discuss how he interpreted Jerry Jones’ Tony Romo comments differently than Colin, and breaks down dome film to explain to Colin why he’s wrong about Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in a new segment called Why it Works.John Middlekauff – Former NFL scout and Bay Area radio host joins the show to talk about his time with Derek Carr at Fresno State, what characteristics he saw then that showed him he was special, why Chip Kelly will never tank a season, and why Kelly’s lack of willingness to adapt his offense is killing his NFL coaching career.
