MONTREAL – Gabrielle Bouchard, the first trans woman to lead Quebec’s main women’s advocacy federation, says her detractors are guilty of trickle-down feminism.As long as white, privileged and wealthy feminists achieve equality, then less fortunate women will eventually see some benefits too, the logic goes, Bouchard said.“They are saying we’ll tolerate trans women as long as they are not in a position of power,” she told The Canadian Press. “We’ll tolerate lesbians in the movement as long as they stand 10 feet away.”Not long after Bouchard’s recent election to the presidency of the Quebec federation of women, the backlash began.A columnist in a Montreal newspaper wrote in early December, “who is this man who became a woman as an adult?“How can she speak on behalf of all women, as someone who was raised in a masculine culture, ignoring the experiences that women have lived through since they were born?” wrote Denise Bombardier, a well-known media personality in Quebec.Bouchard, 49, said she was chosen by members of the federation to be president and ran unopposed.Yet she’s been criticized on social media and privately in emails by members of the public.“From the members of the federation and the board — the reception has been great,” she said. “I am truly enjoying the team dynamic we have.”Outside the federation, however, “Some women are really, really, not happy,” Bouchard said.The federation of Quebec women represents roughly 300 feminist organizations across the province as well as about 700 individual members.It’s an organization that leans heavily to the left, and its mission, as described on its website, includes an aim to “deconstruct and eliminate patriarchy and all the other systems of oppression or domination with which it is intertwined, such as capitalism, racism, imperialism, heterosexism, colonialism.”The federation’s website also singles out Israel and demands the country end its blockade of Gaza.Bouchard’s vision for the presidency is to better enshrine her organization’s mission: Equality for all women and equality among all women.Her definition of feminism is inclusive: “It’s about not leaving anyone behind,” she said.Over the past few years, governments across Canada have made significant movement toward recognizing trans rights.The federal government passed Bill C-16 last June, which amends the Canadian Human Rights Act to add gender identity and gender expression to the list of prohibited grounds of discrimination.Bouchard agreed society is more accepting today than just six years ago, when she began her activism, but barriers remain.Some women feel uncomfortable when a trans person seeks shelter at refuges for female victims of violence. Employees at those centres have been known to ask trans women if they’ve received gender-reassignment surgery, Bouchard said.Bouchard said part of her work as president will be to fight against so-called trickle-down feminism and for a more inclusive interpretation of womanhood.She rejects the idea she can’t president of a women’s rights organization.“(This opinion) presumes all women live the same experience — which is not true,” she said.“It also presumes the identity barriers I face, the risk of violence I face, the risk of unemployment and not finding housing are illegitimate and not based in sexism.“All the barriers I face are actually based in sexism. They also happen to be based in transphobia. I am living at the intersection of trans identity and being a woman, and it creates a marginalization that some women don’t face.”
Art Production Fund (APF) is honored to announce that Co-Founders Doreen Remen and Yvonne Force Villareal have been awarded the 2014 Lennon Ono Grant for Peace for their public art program since 2000.A biennial award inaugurated by Yoko Ono in 2002 to honor the peace activism of John Lennon, the grant’s past recipients have included Doctors Without Borders, Pussy Riot, and The Centre for Constitutional Rights. APF will donate the entirety of the $52,000 grant to two urgent nonprofit organizations: Coalition for the Homeless’ First Step Training Program for Women and Spirituality for Kids.“We have long admired Yoko Ono as an artist and activist who has dedicated her life to promoting peace,” said Remen and Force Villareal. “Receiving this award is truly humbling and instills in both of us an even deeper desire to advocate for peace on a local and global scale.”“Our children are our future, and with raised consciousness and self-awareness, they will lead us to a world of peace and harmony,” said Doreen Remen. “Upon receiving news of the grant, I immediately wanted to share this privilege with Spirituality for Kids, a ground-breaking non-profit that provides children with the opportunity and tools to develop respect and care for themselves, others, and the world around them. It is through their individual thoughts and actions that global unity and peace will be achieved.”“As a mother, feminist, and career women, I am ecstatic to support the Coalition for the Homeless’ First Step Training Program for Women,” said Yvonne Force Villareal. “The program empowers these courageous women who deeply desire to create positive change in their lives, but lack resources and job training. Peace starts in a stable and safe home.”The Lennon Ono Grant For Peace was created as a way to promote peace, truth, and humanity in the world, and to help people who promote these values. This year’s awards were presented on October 9 (John Lennon’s birthday) in Reykjavik, Iceland, where Yoko Ono led ceremonies to commemorate her late husband. Ono illuminated the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER, a vast tower of light located on the island of Videy, which will remain lit until the day of Lennon’s death on December 8. Additional 2014 recipients include Rolling Stone’s Jann Wenner, Peace One Day’s Jeremy Gilley and Jon Gnarr, the former Mayor of Reykjavik.“I am very happy to honour [Art Production Fund] this year with the award that, for me, symbolises much of the work that John Lennon and I tried to do together and which I now continue to do.”The Coalition for the Homeless is the nation’s oldest advocacy and direct service organization helping homeless men, women and children. The First Step Job Training Program gives approximately 125 homeless and low-income women per year the computer training, literacy, life skills, mentoring, networking opportunities – and the self-confidence – needed to secure living-wage employment. First Step was designed to empower students to reach their full potential – emotionally and professionally – enabling them to thrive both in the workplace and in their personal lives.Founded in 2007, Spirituality for Kids is an 501c3 educational nonprofit organization that aims to deepen children’s sense of purpose in life, encourage them to reflect on their actions, see challenges as opportunities, and awaken their desire to make a difference in the world around them. Through engaging videos, animations, games, art activities, journaling and more, kids learn the “rules to the game of life”, which help them tap into their inner strengths, realizing that the power to overcome any challenge lies within them.

Learn how outer order can spell peace for your inner calm and productivity; Read a translated love story that travelled from Persia to medieval Kashmir and eventually to the modern day; And finally, flick through the words of wisdom of some of the greatest business minds, including Azim Premji and JRD Tata. ‘Outer Order Inner Calm’ by Gretchen Rubin A messy desk, crowded closet or jumbled-up handbag may seem like a trivial problem, yet getting control of the stuff of life makes it easier to feel in control of our lives generally. That’s the basic premise of happiness and human nature writer Gretchen Rubin’s latest novel, which summed in a nutshell sermonises that outer order leads to inner calm. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainIn its introduction, the author has offered five stages for establishing outer order. First, we make choices – what possessions to keep and what to do with them. Once we’ve cleared through our things, we create order by organising, repairing, and attending to neglected areas. Next, we reflect on ourselves, to know ourselves, and others, so that we can take those individuals insights into account. Then, once the clutter is vanquished, it’s useful to cultivate helpful habits to maintain that order, so the clutter doesn’t return. The fifth and the final step is to add beauty to to make out surrounding more inviting and comfortable.

By Rahma Ouled CherifRabat – The fifth Halieutis Fisheries International Fair marked, on its first day, the renewal of three partnership agreements between Morocco’s National Fisheries Office and the French agricultural office FranceAgriMer, the northern French city of Boulogne-sur-Mer, and the French fishing port of Lorient-Keroman.According to Amina Figuigui, managing director of the National Office of Fisheries, “The fisheries agreement aims to strategize a business plan, between 2019 and 2020, built on past agreements. It focuses primarily on organization, marketing, modernization, and restructuring.” Aziz Akhannouch, Morocco’s minister of agriculture, fisheries, rural development, water, and forests, emphasized, “We must highlight these achievements and work on improving them.”Morocco is the world’s 13th largest producer of fish and top producer in Africa, with 1.4 million tons of fish production.Read Also: Spain: Adoption of EU-Morocco Fisheries Agreement is Decisive StepAccording to Jean-Paul Solaro, president of the Lorient-Keroman port, the port’s partnership agreement with Morocco aims at “marketing fish products, modernizing the sector, improving financial management of commercial transactions, supporting Moroccan and French exporters and importers as well as developing a seafood tracking system.”As for the partnership made with Boulogne-sur-Mer in February 2017, Frederic Cuvillier, the previous French minister of agriculture, agrifood, and forestry, stated that it focuses “on the marketing of fisheries products, training, innovation and regional cooperation at the national and European levels, as well as the support of Moroccan and French exporters and importers.”The fair, held from February 20-24 in Agadir, was inaugurated by Akhannouch under the theme “New Technologies in Fishing: For a Better Fisheries Contribution in the Blue Economy.”The fair anticipated it would host over 350 exhibitors from 38 countries. Norway is the guest of honor, and other guests include Russia, Italy, Spain, France, Côte d’Ivoire, Gambia, Gabon, Guinea, and Benin.The five-day fair is organized in the form of roundtables, each of which consists of 20-30 participants so as to facilitate discussion on current practices and requirements to meet traceability needs of national and international markets. The fisheries fair also allows professionals and various stakeholders to exchange experiences and foster innovation in the vital sector for the Moroccan economy.The event will be open to the public on Saturday and Sunday.
Motivated by his own experiences at Brock University, Art Bicknell (BSc ’71) has created a legacy that he hopes will inspire others.As a student, Bicknell remembers a much different University than stands today. He appreciates that the continued growth around campus and the evolving learning and research wouldn’t take place without donor support.He was able to receive scholarships for each of his years at Brock and the impact was memorable to him, beyond his education and throughout his career.“I would not have had a successful career if I did not receive scholarships during my time at Brock University,” said Bicknell.“It seemed only fitting that I give to Brock so future generations will have the same opportunities.”As a result of Bicknell’s annual support, there are now two scholarships that bear his name.Knowing that he wanted to ensure the awards continue to build and grow along with the institution, Bicknell made a further decision — to leave a gift directed to them in his will.This gift will ensure the scholarships continue to make the greatest impact possible and enable students to obtain a post-secondary education, and further research in the field of mathematics.Bicknell has truly created a legacy at Brock, in both name and impact.His family name will live on and his generosity inspires past, current and future award recipients.

(AP Photo/Petr David Josek, File)LOS ANGELES (AP) — Olympic champion swimmer Simone Manuel of Stanford won the Honda Cup on Monday night for collegiate woman athlete of the year.It’s the second time Stanford has had back-to-back winners. Katie Ledecky, Manuel’s Olympic and collegiate teammate, won last year. Swimmer Tara Kirk won the award in 2004, followed by volleyball player Ogonna Nnamani the next year.Manuel, of Sugar Land, Texas, received the trophy at the Galen Center on the Southern California campus.She became the first black woman to win an individual Olympic gold medal in swimming at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games, where Manuel also won another gold and two silvers.She finished her collegiate career with six American records and seven NCAA records and was a member of two NCAA championship teams and two Pac-12 Conference title squads. Manuel won 14 NCAA titles over her career, including six at this year’s championships.In the classroom, Manuel was a two-time Pac-12 Academic honoree and a CoSIDA first-team Academic All-American as a communications major.Manuel, track and field star Maggie Ewen of Arizona State and basketball star A’ja Wilson of South Carolina were the top three finalists from a field of 12. They were selected in voting by nearly 1,000 NCAA member schools.The Honda Inspiration award was presented to cross-country runner Megan Cunningham of Missouri. The Division II Athlete of the Year award went to cross-country runner Caroline Kurgat of Alaska-Anchorage and the Division III Athlete of the Year was tennis player Eudice Chong of Wesleyan.

Phobos-Grunt est bien retombée au large du Chili, d’après les AméricainsLe commandement stratégique américain a finalement publié les données concernant la chute de la sonde russe Phobos-Grunt. Celles-ci confirment que l’engin est tombé dans l’océan Pacifique au large du Chili. Près de 10 jours après la chute de la sonde Phobos-Grunt, le commandement stratégique américain (USSTRATCOM) chargé de contrôler les engins spatiaux en orbite, a enfin confirmé les coordonnées de retombée. À lire aussiBoisson, météorite et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 5 septembreSelon les informations publiées sur le site Space Track, l’engin russe a fini sa course le 15 janvier à 15h46 heure UTC à 46° de latitude sud et 273° de longitude est. Ceci correspond à un endroit situé en plein océan Pacifique à quelque 1.100 kilomètres à l’ouest de la ville chilienne de Koyayke, relève RIA Novosti. La sonde Phobos-Grunt a décollé depuis le cosmodrome russe de Baïkonour, au Kazakhstan, le 9 novembre 2011 et s’est séparé quelques minutes après de son lanceur Zenit-2SB. Mais une panne du propulseur l’a empêché de prendre la direction de Mars et de rejoindre la lune Phobos. Les tentatives de reprendre contact avec l’appareil ont ensuite toutes échoué, ne laissant d’autre choix que de surveiller l’engin pour prédire sa retombée.Le 24 janvier 2012 à 18:09 • Maxime Lambert
Mini Satellite View of Hurricane Dorian Shows Intense Storm ActivityWild Horses of NC to Ride Out Hurricane With ‘Butts to the Wind’ A hiker who got stuck in quicksand at Utah’s Zion National Park was rescued over the weekend by park rangers and a helicopter team during a two-day operation amid a winter storm, National Park Service (NPS) authorities said.The 34-year-old Arizona man was hiking the area known as The Subway at Zion on Saturday and was about three hours into the hike when one of his legs became trapped in quicksand the middle of a creek, according to a NPS statement.“His leg was buried up to his knee and he was unable to free himself,” NPS authorities said.The man had been hiking with a companion, who tried to free his leg but was unsuccessful. His companion left him with warm gear and clothing and hiked to call for help. But it was approximately three hours until she got cell phone service and was able to call 911.By the time the Zion Search and Rescue team arrived the man was suffering from exposure, hypothermia, and injuries to his extremities, according to the statement. It took two hours for rangers to free the man’s leg from the quicksand.Rangers then spent the night with the patient in frigid conditions with four additional inches of snow overnight.The next morning, the Utah Department of Public Safety helicopter responded from Salt Lake City, amid winter storms in the area that decreased visibility for aircraft all morning.After a small break in the weather occurred in the afternoon, the DPS helicopter was able to deploy a hoist rescue operation to safely extricate the patient. The pilot got as close as 75 feet from the ground, and then one of the crew members was lowered to the ground using the hoist. The crew member then got the injured hiker prepped and hoisted into the helicopter.According to the Deseret News, once inside the chopper, the man, who was heavily bundled up by rescuers, said, “Thank you.” The patient was then transported to an awaiting ambulance and transported to the hospital.“It was a little bit difficult. The weather made it a little complicated, but I had the easiest job. The hardest job was the guys on the ground who spent all night there, were cold, fighting water and weather and wind,” Sgt. Wyatt Weber, who was part of the DPS helicopter team, told Deseret News. “We train for this. We’ve practiced many hours for wind and water and those kind of things.”Winter conditions at Zion National Park can be extreme, especially in the higher elevations. Colder temperatures, shorter days, snow, ice, and cold run-off can make easy hikes difficult and strenuous ones treacherous. The National Park Service advises visitors to use extreme caution during poor weather events at Zion.“Presidents Day Weekend is often dry, warm, and sunny,” said Aly Baltrus, Zion’s Public Information Officer. “This year was as predicted — cold and wet.”More on Geek.com:Autonomous Drone Fleets Could Aid Forest Searches for Lost HikersWatch: Crack in Frozen Wisconsin Lake Swallows Pickup Truck WholeSnow Has Fallen in a Hawaii State Park for Perhaps the First Time Ever Stay on target
“We want to help unaffected growers get back into production and enable stores and consumers to re-stock. One goal we’re seeking is to make this type of labeling the new standard rather than a short-term fix; as a way to improve identification and traceability in the system.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The romaine lettuce responsible for an E. coli outbreak that sickened more than 30 people across multiple states likely originated in California, according to Food and Drug Administration. They are currently working with growers and distributors on labeling produce with a “post-purge” date to inform consumers that certain products are now safe to eat. States affected by the outbreak include California (which had the highest number of cases — 10), Michigan, Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Wisconsin. Two days before Thanksgiving, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a food safety alert saying 32 people across 11 states had become sick because of contaminated romaine lettuce. The CDC is advising people avoid romaine lettuce completely. “New romaine from different growing regions, including Florida and Arizona, will soon be harvested,” the FDA tweeted. “We’re working with growers and distributors on labeling produce for location and harvest date and possibly other ways of informing consumers that the product is ‘post-purge’” The FDA is hoping to create a new labeling standard that would require companies to show where lettuce is from and when it is harvested.

Samsung Labor Day and the start of football season mean TV sales. And while Vizio and TCL continue to battle it out in the “cheap but good” space, Samsung usually stays above the fray. But “usually” doesn’t mean “always” — and that’s why it’s notable that Samsung’s 2019 Frame TV has returned to its Prime Day low: $1,398 for the 55-inch version, or $400 off the list price. We haven’t reviewed this specific model, but we can stipulate two things about Samsung TVs in general: The 4K QLED (that’s LED-powered LCD screens enhanced with quantum dot color) picture quality is generally awesome — you can see here how it compares with LG’s OLED, the current top dog in the TV screen technology wars. The catch? You’re going to pay a premium for the Samsung name compared to other LED/QLED TVs from the aforementioned budget competitors Vizio and TCL. That said, Samsung is far and away the leader in TV industrial design, and the company’s Frame line leans into that strength in a big way. These TVs are designed to mimic picture frames (get it?), right down to including more than 100 works of art that you can display when not using it in boob tube mode. Why have a black box when you can be displaying a gorgeous landscape? (That white matted border is part of the screen — it goes away when you’re watching video.)And yes, this TV also includes all the usual Samsung goodies, including a full suite of smart TV apps and Alexa compatibility.Note that CNET may get a share of the revenue if you buy anything featured on our site.See the Frame TV at Amazon See that red dot on the crown? It means that this particular Apple Watch can access the internet directly, without being paired to your iPhone. Normally, that’s a $100 premium over the noncellular version — this Watch debuted last year at $379. But Apple Watch prices seem lower than ever as the summer comes to an end, and we expect possible new models at the presumed Apple September event. As always, caveats abound: Yes, new models may be days away. Yes, this is the Series 3 (no ECG monitoring), it’s the smaller 38mm model (the noncellular 42mm model is available for the same price). Yes, you’ll need to pay extra for cellular connectivity (usually $10 extra on your wireless bill per month). And yes, Fitbit just introduced a new model that you should check out.

Citation: Lab study indicates feldspar dominates ice nucleation in clouds with mix of water and ice (2013, June 13) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-06-lab-feldspar-dominates-ice-nucleation.html Explore further Feldspars are a group of minerals that are believed to make up as much as 60 percent of the Earth’s crust. The name comes from the German words “field” and Spath (rocks that don’t have any ore in them.) Prior research has shown that they make up on average just 3 percent of the dust found in clouds, which has led scientists to conclude that they play a minor role in ice formation. In this new effort, the researchers found just the opposite to be true.The amount of ice that forms in clouds is important because it determines how large clouds grow, how long they last and their radiative properties. Because they make up so much of the mass of dust (about two thirds) in clouds, scientists have believed that clay minerals were responsible for most ice nucleation—where water adheres to dust particles kicking off the formation of ice crystals. Now it appears that feldspars play an inordinately important role.To find out what really goes on inside of clouds, the researchers used special cooling chambers in their lab along with various mixtures of dust created to simulate that found in the natural atmosphere. Water vapor in the chamber formed droplets on slides allowing the researchers to study the ice crystals that grew on the minerals that were in them. By watching the process as it happened, the researchers were able to see that most ice nucleation occurred on feldspars rather than clay mineral material.The findings by the team suggest that human activities may be having a larger impact on cloud formation and their properties than has been previously thought—the amount of feldspars in the atmosphere has been rising consistently over the past several decades due to landscape changes in arid areas. Prior research has shown that dust that winds up in clouds comes predominately from arid regions such as the Sahara desert. An increase in feldspars in the atmosphere, the researchers conclude, may be having a still unknown impact on global climate. (Phys.org) —A team of researchers at Britain’s Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science, University of Leeds, with assistance from Australian Matthew Woodhouse of Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization has found that feldspar minerals play a far larger role in ice formation in clouds than has been realized. In their paper published in the journal Nature, the team describes their lab studies that revealed the important nature of feldspar in ice nucleation in clouds. Cloud in Nepali sky. Credit: Wikipedia More information: The importance of feldspar for ice nucleation by mineral dust in mixed-phase clouds, Nature (2013) doi:10.1038/nature12278AbstractThe amount of ice present in mixed-phase clouds, which contain both supercooled liquid water droplets and ice particles, affects cloud extent, lifetime, particle size and radiative properties1, 2. The freezing of cloud droplets can be catalysed by the presence of aerosol particles known as ice nuclei2. One of the most important ice nuclei is thought to be mineral dust aerosol from arid regions2, 3. It is generally assumed that clay minerals, which contribute approximately two-thirds of the dust mass, dominate ice nucleation by mineral dust, and many experimental studies have therefore focused on these materials1, 2, 4, 5, 6. Here we use an established droplet-freezing technique4, 7 to show that feldspar minerals dominate ice nucleation by mineral dusts under mixed-phase cloud conditions, despite feldspar being a minor component of dust emitted from arid regions. We also find that clay minerals are relatively unimportant ice nuclei. Our results from a global aerosol model study suggest that feldspar ice nuclei are globally distributed and that feldspar particles may account for a large proportion of the ice nuclei in Earth’s atmosphere that contribute to freezing at temperatures below about −15 °C.
