Fashion Talks about Royal Style with Donna Bishop Shinan Govani and Bojana

first_imgOn Day 2 of Toronto Fashion Week, host Donna Bishop joined journalist Shinan Govani and designer Bojana Sentaler for Fashion Talks, a live podcast event presented in association with CAFA. The trio gathered to discuss how the British Royal Family influences fashion. “You can think of the Royal Family as the original reality show,” Govani says. “They were the first influencers.” And that influence goes back for more than a century. It was Queen Victoria who first started the trend of wearing black at funerals. She famously donned dark hues for 40 years after the death of her husband. “She also popularized the white wedding dress,” Govani says. “Wearing white was an iconoclast thing to do.”The fashion influence of the late Diana Princess of Wales is still being felt on runways all over the world. She popularized the distinctive Sloane Ranger style—the idea of younger people wearing traditionally stuffy clothing such as houndstooth, oversized linen blazers and matronly printed dresses. “Marc Jacobs riffed on that style, so did Miuccia Prada,” Govani adds.But perhaps no Toronto-based designer knows about the tastes of the Royals better than Bojana Sentaler. Her eponymous label has been worn by both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle. “I found out on Twitter that Kate Middleton had chosen to wear one of our wrap coats with our signature sleeves for her tour of the Yukon,” Sentaler says. “The coat immediately sold out, and was on back order four times. The Kate Middleton effect is real.” Meghan Markle also donned a tanned wrap coat over Christmas. “She’s been a fan of the brand for many years. She’s so lovely. She had access to wear anything she wanted—and I’m so honoured she chose to wear Sentaler.” Twitter Advertisement Login/Register With: Tickets for tomorrow’s Fashion Talk are still on sale here.

Funds running low to help Indonesian quake victims UN warns

Just one month after a devastating earthquake struck the Indonesian island of Java, money is running out for essential food, water and education projects to reach the people worst hit by the disaster, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said today.Initial contributions from donors were fairly limited, just 60 per cent of what was initially requested from the OCHA flash appeal, the agency’s spokesperson Stephanie Bunker said today. “When it comes to the recovery phase, that phase is more expensive and more protracted. It’s going to take time,” she added in an interview with the UN News Service.Without funding extensions for food aid, the most vulnerable – mostly women and children – could go hungry as early as the end of July and not even half of the one million people made homeless by the earthquake will have received emergency shelter by that time.Housing damage has exceeded initial estimates, with total reconstruction expected to take a minimum of two years.“There’s also a concern about water and sanitation, which is critical to maintaining public health,” Ms. Bunker said. Funding for medical supplies and equipment as well as emergency toilets and clean wells is another top priority for the agency.With school scheduled to start in mid-July, temporary schools and water facilities as well as teaching and learning materials are needed for more than 1,800 schools damaged or destroyed by the earthquake, OCHA estimates. read more

Almost one in ten heart attacks could be prevented if highrisk patients

Almost one in ten heart attacks and strokes could be avoided if check-ups were targeted at high risk patients, new research has revealed.People aged 40 and over in England and Wales are currently eligible to have their heart health assessed every five years.Blood pressure, cholesterol, blood-sugar levels, smoker status, age and family history are factors considered by doctors when working out a person’s chance of having a heart attack or stroke.Patients at higher risk can make lifestyle changes or take medication to lower their risk level.But scientists at University College London have found that low-risk patients are receiving checks too frequently while high-risk patients aren’t receiving enough checks.They believe a personalised rather than a “one-size-fits-all” approach could save lives without costing the NHS any more money.Their research, published in Lancet Public Health, involved monitoring 7,000 people and how long they spent in low, intermediate-low, intermediate-high and high risk categories.While low-risk patients took an average of nine years to become intermediate-low-risk, 70 per cent of intermediate-high-risk patients took just four years to become high-risk and require treatment.The scientists say screening intermediate-high-risk patients every year, intermediate-low-risk every four years and low-risk patients every seven years would cost the same as the current system. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. They say this more targeted approach would allow higher risk patients to be treated sooner and that this would prevent eight per cent of heart attacks and strokes.Professor Mika Kivimaki, one of the researchers, said: “The key message is use individualised screening, not one-size-fits-all.”I think this will be taken up in future and I hope it will happen sooner rather than later.”   read more

122 countries adopt global treaty banning nuclear weapons

(AFP) A global treaty banning nuclear weapons was adopted at the United Nations on Friday despite opposition from the United States, Britain, France and other nuclear powers that boycotted negotiations.The treaty was adopted by a vote of 122 in favour with one country — NATO member The Netherlands voting against — while Singapore abstained.US Ambassador Nikki HaleyLoud applause and cheers broke out in the UN conference hall following the vote that capped three weeks of negotiations on the text providing for a total ban on developing, stockpiling or threatening to use nuclear weapons.Nuclear-armed states have dismissed the ban as unrealistic, arguing it will have no impact on reducing the global stockpile of 15,000 atomic weapons.“Is there anyone that believes that North Korea would agree to a ban on nuclear weapons?” asked US Ambassador Nikki Haley when negotiations began in March. “There is nothing I want more for my family than a world with no nuclear weapons, but we have to be realistic.”But supporters hailed a historic achievement.“We have managed to sow the first seeds of a world free of nuclear weapons,” said Costa Rica’s ambassador, Elayne Whyte Gomez, the president of the UN conference that negotiated the treaty.Led by Austria, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa and New Zealand, 141 countries joined in drafting the treaty that they hope will increase pressure on nuclear states to take disarmament more seriously.None of the nine countries that possess nuclear weapons — the United States, Russia, Britain, China, France, India, Pakistan, North Korea and Israel — took part in the negotiations or the vote.Even Japan — the only country to have suffered atomic attacks, in 1945 — boycotted the talks as did most NATO countries.– No more prestige –Nuclear powers argue their arsenals serve as a deterrent against a nuclear attack and say they remain committed to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).The decades-old NPT seeks to prevent the spread of atomic weapons but also puts the onus on nuclear states to reduce their stockpiles.Impatience however is growing among many non-nuclear states over the slow pace of disarmament as are worries that weapons of mass destruction will fall into the wrong hands.Disarmament campaigners say the treaty will go a long way in increasing the stigma associated with nuclear weapons and will have an impact on public opinion.“The key thing is that it changes the legal landscape,” said Richard Moyes, director of the British-based organization Article 36.“It stops states with nuclear weapons from being able to hide behind the idea that they are not illegal.”“We hope that today marks the beginning of the end of the nuclear age,” said Beatrice Fihn, director of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons.“It is beyond question that nuclear weapons violate the laws of war and pose a clear danger to global security. ”Opponents believe the treaty will fail to advance nuclear disarmament.“We are very critical of this movement because it will give false hopes” and create unreasonable expectations, said a diplomat from a country opposed to the ban.The treaty will be open for signatures as of September 20 and will enter into force when 50 countries have ratified it.

Agnico Eagle talks LTE automation and ore sorting in Q1 results

first_imgAgnico Eagle Mines highlighed a number of initiatives in its March quarter results as the company continues its ambitious growth plan to hit the 2 Moz production milestone in 2020.The headline numbers might have disappointed investors – net income dropped to $37 million from $44.9 million a year earlier, on the back of lower gold sales volumes, realised gold prices and by-product revenue – but there was plenty to be excited about for the future.Group output of 398,217 oz in the first three months of the year puts the company on track to achieve 2019 production of 1.75 Moz of gold (1.63 Moz in 2018), Agnico Eagle said, while the company’s Meliadine gold mine in Nunavut, Canada, was due to achieve commercial production next month. This is expected to be followed by the company’s nearby Amaruq project producing first gold in the September quarter.On the technology front, Agnico reported on its communication infrastructure efforts at its deep LaRonde gold mine in the Abitibi region of Quebec, Canada.Following the successful deployment of its LTE network at LaRonde Zone 5, the company deployed an LTE network at the LaRonde mine below level 269 in 2018. Extension of the network in the ramp area from level 269 to surface and at LaRonde 3 will take place throughout 2019, Agnico said.“The LTE network facilitates the integration of automation technologies currently being tested at LaRonde Zone 5, which are expected to allow the company to maintain similar productivity levels at LaRonde 3 as it historically achieved in the shallower portions of the mine,” the company said.And, on those automation trials at LaRonde Zone 5, Agnico said: “Integration and pilot testing of automated mining equipment (two trucks and one scooptram) continued in the first (March) quarter of 2019 and will be ongoing over the balance of the year.”Last year, Agnico Eagle confirmed its ore sorting plans at its Pinos Altos operation in Mexico. This included the installation of a pilot plant at the mine.The company said, in its March quarter results, samples will be processed from all of the orebodies at Pinos Altos and La India in 2019 to determine the merits of implementing the technology at its Mexican operations.“To-date, sorting of open-pit ore from the Sinter deposit has yielded favourable preliminary results,” it said, adding that similar ore sorting pilot testing is being considered at the company’s other operating regions.last_img read more

ILIC VS KARABATIC Who will be the first in CLUB 1000

Next Story → THW KIEL: “Duvnjak in the line-up in December” Although VELUX EHF Champions League has incomplete statistics for period between 1992 and 2000, there is no doubt that only few players could come close to reach mark of 1000 goals in European elite competition.One of them who did it a few years ago is Macedonian TOP star, Kiril Lazarov, who netted 1194 times until now in his almost two decades of playing at EHF Champions League (without data for two seasons with RK Zagreb).TOP stars who will follow his soon in “CLUB 1000” are Momir Ilic (Telekom Veszprem) and Nikola Karabatic (PSG Handball). The 36-years old Serbian left back netted 964 goals in jerseys of RK Gorenje Velenje, VfL Gummersbach, THW Kiel and Telekom Veszprem.

Google Drive to go native on Chrome OS

first_imgGoogle only recently bestowed Chrome OS with a taskbar and window manager, but there’s another big update in the works. Now that Google Drive has officially launched, work has begun on tightly integrating the cloud storage and sync service with the native Chrome OS filesystem.The announcement from Google’s Sundar Pichai certainly can’t come as a shock. Since day one, Chrome OS has been squarely focused on connected use. First generation Chromebooks offer only a fraction of the local storage that a Windows or Mac notebook would. Chrome OS is also built to play well with Docs and be easily managed by Google Apps administrators,  so providing seamless access to that new storage system seems like a no-brainer.Will synchronization be supported? In all likelihood, yes. Chrome OS can perform a certain number of offline tasks — the Scratchpad app, for example, provides decent rich text editing and photos can be tweaked — so there’s no reason for Google to make Drive integration online-only. Current Google Drive clients also offer selective sync, and that’s something Chrome OS would definitely need. You wouldn’t want to overload your SSD with data you’ve stored in your Drive that isn’t of any use on your Chromebook, like PSDs, iWork files, or .MKV rips of your favorite Blu-ray discs.You also won’t have to enable Google Drive support if you don’t want to. According to Pichai, it’ll be an opt-in feature.Chrome OS will get Google Drive integration starting with version 20, which is currently being served up on the Dev channel. Google Drive has yet to surface in the file manager, but we’ll share some screenshots when it does and let you know how it all works.More at Wiredlast_img read more

Geek deals 100 off new Alienware X51 Core i7 Ivy Bridge Gaming

first_imgAs someone who has built a few gaming rigs in his time, gaming PCs are usually large, loud, and in your face. Large towers provide efficient cooling, room for all your cards/drives, and easy access for upgrading. Thankfully we’ve moved past the days of three foot tall beige boxes that sound like a leaf blower at full tilt, but a high end gaming rig will still eat up your floor space and your wallet.Game consoles these days try to be the opposite; they have a size and shape closer to your home theater components, despite being technologically similar to a computer. This was a move by necessity, if not choice, given that they tend to be deposited in the living room these days. Alienware took the latter approach when they designed the new X51 gaming PC, which is a rather stark departure from their usual gaming systems.Weighing in at just 12.1lb, the X51 looks more like the love-child of an Xbox and Playstation. Instead of 10 year graphics technology stuffed inside, this full-fledged gaming PC has some of the latest technology available. We’ll start with Intel’s newest processor platform, codenamed Ivy Bridge, represented by the deliciously fast Core i7-3770 which runs its four cores between 3.4 and 3.9GHz. NVIDIA’s 1GB GeForce GTX 555 will spit out gorgeous and fast frame rates to fulfill your fragging desires.Not just a horsepower machine, the X51 also has USB 3.0, Wireless-N, a 1TB hard drive, and a slot-loading optical drive. It wouldn’t be an Alienware, though, if it didn’t have the user-adjustable accent lighting system dubbed AlienFX. This deal comes with a rare $100 coupon code for the brand new X51, giving you a chance to upgrade your gaming with some nice savings.Head over to LogicBuy and check out the Alienware X51 Core i7 Ivy Bridge Gaming PClast_img read more

Explainer Whats at stake for each county in the last round of

first_imgExplainer: What’s at stake for each county in the last round of the GAA football league? Round 7 games are down for decision on Sunday afternoon. Division 4Everything has already been wrapped up in this tier with Derry and Leitrim having bagged the promotion places. They will meet in the Division 4 league final on the weekend of 30-31 March. This weekend’s final series of games are split between Saturday and Sunday.* – An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated the points of some counties in Division 1. Tyrone (7 points), Monaghan (4) and Roscommon (3) is the state of play ahead of Sunday’s game.Subscribe to our new podcast, The42 Rugby Weekly, here: 33,560 Views Subscribe By Fintan O’Toole https://the42.ie/4552640 Who will progress to the 2019 football league finals in Croke Park? Image: Oisin Keniry/INPHO Share3 Tweet Email THE FINAL ROUND of the 2019 Allianz football league is pencilled in for this Sunday afternoon with league final placings, promotion races and relegation battles set to be decided.Here are all the permutations across the four divisions with a reminder that head-to-head is used to split teams if two are joined together and scoring difference coming into play if more than two teams finish on the same number of points.Division 1Kerry (1o points), Galway and Mayo (both 8) and Tyrone (7) are all in with a chance of reaching the final. A win or draw will guarantee Kerry’s progression while scoring difference could also work in their favour if Galway and Mayo end up joining them on 10 points.If Galway win they will progress as they can better Mayo if head-to-head comes into play, while a draw would also suffice if Mayo draw or lose. Mayo must win and hope Tyrone do them a favour. Tyrone’s chances revolve around a win over Galway and Mayo losing to Monaghan.Dublin are the only side in the division who have nothing to play for on Sunday. The relegation battle is between Cavan (2 points), Roscommon (3) and Monaghan (4). Cavan must win, hope Monaghan draw with Mayo and Roscommon lose to Kerry, while also improving their scoring difference. Monaghan are definitely safe if they win or if Roscommon lose. A loss for Monaghan and a draw for Roscommon can see them demoted.Division 2Meath are on the cusp of promotion on 10 points. A win or draw at home to Fermanagh on Sunday rubber-stamps their graduation but even if they lose they’d need to suffer a heavy defeat and for Donegal to win so as to not finish in the top two. That latter scenario would see Meath (+20), Fermanagh (+2) and Donegal (+5) all finish top together with scoring difference currently weighted in the Royals favour. Donegal will be aiming to beat Kildare and hope for a Meath victory. If Donegal and Fermanagh finish level, the head-to-head record swings in Fermanagh’s favour. Kildare (7 points) must win in that away game against Donegal and hope Fermanagh lose if their outside hopes are to be realised of promotion.Armagh are safe leaving the Munster trio of Clare (-8), Tipperary (-9) and Cork (-22) all locked together on three points. Cork need to beat Armagh and hope Tipperary win or draw against Clare to survive. If Clare win they will escape while if Tipperary win, they’d need Armagh to get a positive result against Cork. Draws in both games involving the Munster counties would see Cork and Tipperary relegated due to Clare’s superior scoring difference.Division 3Last weekend’s postponement of the Louth and Westmeath game complicates the promotion picture here. Currently Down (10), Laois (8), Westmeath and Longford (both 7), and Louth (6) are all in with a chance of going up. If Down win or draw at home to Louth on Sunday, they will be promoted and similarly a win for Laois over Carlow could be sufficient for them. If Westmeath or Louth pick up full points from their last two games, they would enter the frame, while Longford will also pursue a win to keep their hopes alive.At the bottom Sligo are already relegated. Offaly (3 points) must beat them away from home in their last game while hoping Carlow (5 points) lose to Laois and then the head-to-head factor would favour Offaly.center_img Mar 20th 2019, 6:16 PM Wednesday 20 Mar 2019, 9:40 PM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Short URL Image: Oisin Keniry/INPHO Who will progress to the 2019 football league finals in Croke Park? 10 Comments last_img read more

LUNESCO rend son premier rapport sur les destructions à Tombouctou

first_imgL’UNESCO rend son premier rapport sur les destructions à TombouctouAprès les nombreux saccages et profanations qui ont touché les mausolées et bibliothèques de Tombouctou, l’UNESCO a enfin pu constater l’étendu des dommages. Commis par des islamistes, ils sont plus nombreux et graves et que prévu. L’UNESCO reste pourtant déterminée à restaurer ces sites, dont certains sont classés au patrimoine mondial de l’humanité. La ville était un joyau du désert, mais l’insurrection de 2012 a été le théâtre de nombreux saccages et profanations à Tombouctou, au Mali. L’UNESCO a rendu le 7 juin son premier bilan depuis que la ville est de nouveau sous contrôle. Les dégâts sont encore plus importants que prévu, mais l’organisation compte bien retrousser ses manches pour restaurer les nombreux monuments et bibliothèques détruits.”Les destructions causées au patrimoine de Tombouctou sont encore plus inquiétantes que ce que nous pensions, déplore le leader de la mission Lazare Eloundou Assomo du centre du patrimoine mondial de l’UNESCO. Nous avons découvert que 14 des mausolées de Tombouctou, y compris ceux qui faisaient partie des sites classés au patrimoine mondial de l’humanité, ont été complètement détruits ainsi que deux autres à la mosquée Djingareyber.”Victime d’une insurrection en 2012″Le monument emblématique El Farouk aux portes de la ville a été rasé, poursuit-il. On estime que 4203 manuscrits du centre de recherche Ahmed Baba ont été perdus et que 300 000 autres ont été évacués, principalement à Bamako. Ils ont urgemment besoin d’être protégés.”Un soulèvement conjoint des Touaregs et d’islamistes a fait perdre le contrôle de Tombouctou au pouvoir central de Bamako. Depuis juillet 2012, et ce jusqu’à ce que les forces françaises reprennent la ville en janvier 2013, les islamistes se sont livrés à de nombreuses destructions de sites historiques ainsi qu’à des exactions envers la population. Les anciens mausolées et bibliothèques qui faisaient la fierté de la ville ont été considérés comme incompatibles avec la vision rigoriste de l’Islam des insurgés.L’UNESCO déterminée à restaurer les monumentsTombouctou a été un centre culturel, religieux et scientifique majeur de l’Afrique subsaharienne, avec entre autres sa très prestigieuse université de Sankoré. La ville eu un rôle considérable sous les empires du Mali et de Songhaï du XIIIe au XVIe siècle. Malgré les ravages de ces destructions volontaires Irinia Bokova, directrice-générale de l’UNESCO, a affirmé sa volonté de rendre sa splendeur à la ville.”Ce n’est pas qu’une question de réparer les dégâts, c’est une question de valeurs, affirme-t-elle. L‘UNESCO a sauvé les temples Égypte et reconstruit le pont de Mostar [en Bosnie-Herzégovine], l’UNESCO va reconstruire les mausolées du Mali.” Le 9 juin 2013 à 18:41 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more
