Advertisement Twitter Login/Register With: Showrunner Bruce Miller talks with THR about how season two of the award-winning Hulu drama will continue to explore parallels with Trump, the Time’s Up movement and more: “You can’t avoid the influence.”Its meteoric cultural impact is but one of the many reasons why Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale became an award-winning lightning rod of a television series. And the streaming service, which recently topped 17 million subscribers, hopes that the Elisabeth Moss starrer from showrunner Bruce Miller continues to be as culturally relevant in April as its first season was when it was filmed before Donald Trump was elected president. Based on Margaret Atwood’s 1985 novel of the same name, with the adaptation first bowing on Hulu in April 2017, The Handmaid’s Tale centers on Offred (Moss), formerly known as June, and formerly in control of her own life. That all changed when religious zealots forcefully seized control over the United State of America and turned it into the dystopian nation of Gilead, a world in which men wield absolute power over women, many of whom now serve as “handmaids,” tasked with reproduction in an increasingly sterile society. Advertisement THE HANDMAID’S TALE — The Emmy-winning drama series returns with a second season shaped by Offred’s pregnancy and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead. “Gilead is within you” is a favorite saying of Aunt Lydia. In Season Two, Offred and all our characters will fight against – or succumb to – this dark truth.(Photo by: Take Five/Hulu) Advertisement Facebook LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Released in the months following Trump’s election, and in the midst of a rising tide of activism against systemic misogyny, The Handmaid’s Tale arrived with painfully relevant cultural impact, with the now-iconic uniform of the handmaids worn worldwide at protests, just as one example of the show’s widely felt significance. “It’s a costume that people have taken beyond the show and out into the real world,” Miller tells The Hollywood Reporter about how The Handmaid’s Tale has transcended television to become part of a global conversation. “It’s amazing.”

“If not, it is inevitable that many more people will die trying to reach safety in Europe,” UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres warned in a press release issued today by his Office (UNHCR).“There can be no doubt left after this week’s events that Europe’s Operation ‘Triton’ is a woefully inadequate replacement for Italy’s ‘Mare Nostrum,’” said Mr. Guterres was referring to the deaths this week of at least 300 people who were trying to reach Europe from Libya on four dinghies. “The focus has to be about saving lives,” he said. “We need a robust search-and-rescue operation in the Central Mediterranean, not only a border patrol.”Earlier this week, the UN Special Rapporteur on the human rights of migrants, François Crépeau, said asylum-seekers and migrants will continue to arrive and stay in Europe “no matter what” and that “migrants will continue arriving despite all efforts to stop them, at a terrible cost in lives and suffering if nothing else is put in place.”Last year, the number of people risking their lives to cross the Mediterranean on smugglers’ boats rose dramatically and many of them were fleeing conflicts or persecution in Syria, the Horn of Africa and other parts of sub-Saharan Africa, according to UNHCR. In all, at least 218,000 people crossed the Mediterranean and 3,500 lives were lost.Italy, following heavy loss of life in two incidents on the high seas in October 2013, launched the Mare Nostrum operation – rescuing tens of thousands of people. UNHCR has repeatedly expressed concern about the ending of Mare Nostrum late last year without a similar European search-and-rescue operation to replace it. Last November, the EU border agency Frontex launched Operation Triton, which focuses on border surveillance but can contribute to rescue efforts.Concerned that Europe’s response to such tragedies is not to step up its rescue efforts, but to phase them out, Mr. Guterres called on the EU to urgently establish a search-and-rescue operation similar in scale and reach to Mare Nostrum.UNHCR said it has called repeatedly on European governments to address the problem of people fleeing wars and trying to reach Europe across the Mediterranean, with a view to reducing losses of life at sea via improved surveillance and better search and rescue.
Ms Daniel said she was determined to keep promises made to bereaved families, who had been told that information would be released, in a bid to ensure openness after previous cover-ups.She told Health Service Journal: “We did receive a letter indicating that they would injunct us. I have given a commitment to the family of Joshua Titcombe to release the information and I was concerned to do the right thing.“This doesn’t do anything to build confidence that we are working in an open and transparent environment. It completely misses the bigger picture. My judgement was clear about doing the right thing.”Mr Titcombe said the actions of the union were “immoral” and said the deal given to Ms Parkinson looked like an attempt to hide the truth. He called on Cathy Warwick, chief executive of the RCM, to resign.The RCM last night declined to comment. ‘This doesn’t do anything to build confidence that we are working in an open and transparent environment. It completely misses the bigger picture. My judgement was clear about doing the right thing’Jackie Daniel, chief executive of University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay Foundation Trust Ms Parkinson was employed at Morecambe Bay Foundation trust as a “maternity risk manager” from 2004 to 2012.But she was also a former RCM union official, who acted as staff representative – in what an investigation would later identify as a major conflict of interest.The scandal in Morecambe Bay prompted a national review of maternity services, after a string of failings and cover ups, with Ms Parkinson accused of leading collusion among midwives to hide their failings. It followed a long campaign by James Titcombe, whose baby son Joshua died in 2008, after midwives repeatedly missed chances to spot and treat an infection.Jackie Daniel, the current chief executive of University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay Foundation Trust, said the midwives’ union this week threatened to injuct the trust, and prevent it publishing the findings of its review. The midwives’ union tried to gag health officials, in a bid to protect the ringleader in a scandal which saw 11 baby deaths, an investigation has revealed.Jeanette Parkinson was one of a group of midwives in Morecambe Bay who she dubbed “the musketeers” as she they colluded to cover up critical blunders.Yesterday leaked documents revealed that she was “significantly overpaid” – receiving 14 months’ salary in a farewell deal in 2012 which prevented investigation of her conduct.The manager who signed off the terms is now being hauled in front of regulators.Now it has emerged that the Royal College of Midwives has threatened legal action to prevent the NHS trust publishing a report into the matter.

16-year-old Greta Thunberg met with Obama and chided senators, saying they’re not trying hard enough to fight climate change A car plowed through the main hall of Trump Plaza in New Rochelle, New York The US is building a case against Iran in the attacks on Saudi Arabia, but Trump is in no rush to act SpaceX is trying to buy a hamlet inside its Texas rocket-launch site because it ‘did not anticipate’ there’d be any ‘significant disruption’ to residents who live there EXPERTS HAVE WARNED the ocean’s jellyfish population is getting out of control, and this has caused problems for a variety of people and organizations.People might get stung while at the beach, sure, but there are larger repercussions too — the Oskarshamn nuclear power plant in southeastern Sweden had to close after jellyfish clogged its pipework, and hordes of murderous jellyfish have cost the fishing industry billions of dollars in lost earnings per year.Enter robots.South Korean scientist Hyun Mong, director of the Urban Robotics Lab at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, has designed a robotic system called “JEROS,” short for “jellyfish elimination robotic swarm”.JEROS is designed so teams of three can work together to collectively reduce the jellyfish population.By tracking jellyfish and sucking them into their deadly propellers, each JEROS robot can shred just shy of one ton’s worth of jellyfish per hour.This system is surprisingly more affordable than trapping the creatures in a net.Here’s a fleet of three JEROS systems at work in a bay. Source: urobotkaist via YouTubeThey spot the jellyfish in the water by using image processing in their onboard cameras. Source: urobotkaist via YouTubeOnce jellyfish are properly targeted, the JEROS propeller spins to life and kills them.

We appear to be heading out of the trough of the uncanny valley. That goateed, shaggy haired professorial type in the image above isn’t actually a professor. He’s not even human. Meet the latest in the series of Geminoid ultra-realistic androids, designed by Kokoro and Hiroshi Ishiguro. Called the Gemini DK, this is the first Gemini not to have been modeled on an Asian: instead, it was constructed to look exactly like associate professor Henry Scharfe of Aalborg University in Denmark.The Gemini DK (DK presumably stands for Denmark) was built in Tokyo, Japan by Kokoro, and it’s now being tested and programmed at Japan’s Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute. What’s the point of an android that looks just like its designer, though?AdChoices广告In actuality, it’s to study concepts like the uncanny valley, which describes the drop-off in the human brain’s ability to accept a humanoid replica of another person as “real” as it becomes increasingly perfect. The Geminoid series of androids are used for researching “emotional affordances” in human-robot interaction, as well as the cultural differences in the way different countries respond to robots (people in Japan, for example, are far more at ease around robots than people from Venezuela might be).As with the other Geminoid robots, the movements and expressions of the Geminoid DK are controlled by remote by an operator with a computer using a motion-capture system that tracks his own facial expressions and head movements. In the future, that feature set may well increase to allow full mobility.As for the Geminoid DK, Professor Scharfe is being tight lipped about what he will do with the robot, but his wife is not: she’s already suggesting they send the robot in his place to conferences.Read more at IEEE
The Human Rights Arts and Film Festival, which will take place in the Melbourne CBD between 7 and 26 May, will see the fusion of artistic talent through film and art projects that are all accompanied by a common theme of human rights advocacy. Human rights issues tackled by the festival in order to challenge and inspire the minds of its onlookers include civil war, migration, asylum seekers, poverty, domestic violence, climate change, gender equality and children’s rights. The cross-section of artistic talent, belief and the locations of each film or art project pay artistic homage to the fact that these basic human rights needs are being suffered globally and are thus a global responsibility of all. It is not surprising, therefore, that a film surrounding Greece has taken place in this year’s program, shedding light on the prominent humanistic spirit of the Greek soul that is vibrant and alive in Australia today. Evaporating Borders is a documentary produced by filmmaker and Cypriot asylum seeker Iva Radivojevic. The documentary is a visual essay that will transpose you into the lives and struggles of those who wish to enter into a life of safety and freedom through Europe’s easiest access point, Cyprus. Being one of the easiest entry points into the European Union, Cyprus is a popular final destination for refugees escaping countries around the Mediterranean, fleeing for hopes of a better life. The film is narrated in Greek by Radivojevic herself, who guides the audience through the streets of modern Cyprus to try and understand the reality of present day refuge in Cyprus, presenting to the audience why aggression and antipathy towards newly-arrived citizens is quite common and causes a further divide in the nation. Evaporating Borders was being presented by the Australian Asylum Seeker Resource Centre at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) theatre in Melbourne on Monday 11 May. After the film’s viewing, a post-film panel took take place, where discussion will centre on the vast movement of refugees in Cyprus and possible solutions to the antipathy that is prevalent there today. Included on the panel’s board wass Greek writer, blogger and political theorist Angela Mitropoulos.Evaporating Borders has already won at least four awards, including the Doku Fest Balkan Documentary winner for 2014, making it an experience not to be missed.Take part in this year’s festival to celebrate not only what makes Melbourne a place of humanistic integrity, but the most important global responsibility; human rights.

In an effort to prepare for what is expected to be the most active Atlantic hurricane season since 2012, Washington, D.C. area utility Pepco unveiled a state-of-the-art vehicle that will monitor storm developments and pinpoint areas where disaster assistance may be needed.On May 25, Pepco officials introduced the mobile command unit at its office in downtown Washington. Dave Velazquez, president and CEO of Pepco Holdings, which recently was acquired by Exelon, said that “one bad storm can cause widespread property damage and outages.”Velazquez said this year’s hurricane season is expected to be a “heavier than normal storm season.” Thanks to Pepco’s acquisition by Exelon, he said the utility can call upon the equipment and manpower of its “sister” utilities on the East coast.The command center is divided into three areas. The back of the vehicle is an administrative center with a copy/fax machine and telephones with three satellite-generated screens. Its middle encompasses the entrance, a microwave oven and a small power generator center. The front is a “situation-room” with five large satellite screens, including one that has a map of the Washington metro area, as well as laptops and telephones.John Anthony Tyler, senior vice president and chief operating officer of Pepco Holdings, said the vehicle will be a critical part of the company’s response to disasters.“There are three objectives to our storm preparedness,” he said. “We want outage prevention through proactive investment and we want to have a sense of urgency to bring the right resources to affected areas as soon as possible. We also want to communicate to customers quickly so they can make critical decisions regarding what they need to do in a disaster situation.”Pepco experienced outages during the hurricane season in 2015.Tyler told the AFRO that the District will have one mobile unit; if additional coordination is needed, Pepco’s “sister” utilities will be contacted for use of their mobile command centers. He said areas that are the hardest hit by a disaster will be serviced by the mobile center and the vehicle can be quickly deployed to any area in the District within 20 minutes.
Apple’s big ‘show time’ press event is under two weeks away, but the company is still working to ensure it has a potent lineup for its long-teased video streaming service. According to a Bloomberg report, Apple is still chasing collaborations with the likes of HBO, Showtime and Starz for pay-TV content to sit alongside its own original programming and movies.While we don’t know precisely how Apple’s streaming service will look until that March 25th showcase, it’s very likely to get its hooks into nearly all of the company’s media-consuming hardware, from iPhone to Apple TV. (Remember when it was going to make a TV? Seems like a decade ago.)Timing is reportedly tight. According to Bloomberg sources, a couple of deals are set to be inked this Friday. The gameplan is to ensure that people using Apple hardware will keep themselves interested with the company’s own apps and media, instead of hopping to 3rd party apps and services, like users do with Netflix and standalone apps from HBO and the rest. The process has worked out well for Apple Music.Rumors suggest that Apple will pitch its video and magazine services as separate entities with separate prices, but it could offer a bundle that offers, say, both services and an Apple Music sub at a cheaper price. Apple’s Tim Cook had noted that services will be crucial for the company, as iPhone sales slow and hardware innovation makes the once-annual upgrade less of a draw. 2 min read March 13, 2019 How Success Happens Hear from Polar Explorers, ultra marathoners, authors, artists and a range of other unique personalities to better understand the traits that make excellence possible.

HALIFAX — A palatial cruise ship described by passengers as a mini, moving city cast an impressive figure on the Halifax waterfront Thursday, breaking port records as thousands of tourists flooded into the city.The Anthem of the Seas arrived in downtown Halifax under grey skies, towering over historic Pier 21 on the south side of the waterfront boardwalk.The Port of Halifax says the ship was carrying about 4,180 passengers plus the crew and weighs a whopping 168,666 tons, making it the largest cruise ship ever to visit Halifax both in terms of its size and passenger capacity.The Quantum Class boat has everything from bumper cars and roller skating to a circus school and four swimming pools, along with more than 2,000 staterooms.Linda Jacobs, a retiree from New York state who was vacationing aboard the mammoth ship with her husband Ed Jacobs, said it took them a few days to get their bearings.More news: Can you guess the top Instagrammed wedding locations in the world?“It’s big. It’s big and confusing. But after a while you get used to it,” said Linda Jacobs on the boardwalk, adding that there are people from all over the world on the Anthem including China and Australia.“It’s like a mini city,” said Ed Jacobs with a laugh. “There’s people from all different places, and we’ve talked to just about everybody.”A round, mechanical capsule on the ship’s upper deck that lifts passengers 90 metres above the sea could be seen ascending into the fog on Thursday morning.Onlookers were gathering in nearby parking lots and along the water’s edge to snap pictures of the massive vessel, which was built last year.Inside the nearby Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market, vendor Laura Mae of Osha Mae was anticipating an influx of customers just before the cruise ship passengers were scheduled to reboard the Anthem around 4:30 p.m.Mae, an herbalist who sells handmade soaps and other aroma therapy products, said cruise ships do give her business a financial boost, but they also allow her products to travel to places around the world, including Ireland and Portugal.More news: Universal enhances popular Harry Potter vacation package with new perks“People will buy the product and use it for a few months at home, and it’s taking them back to their awesome time in Halifax,” said Mae, referring to the phenomenon of smells being linked to memories.“It certainly has an impact on my business.” Posted by Tags: Halifax << Previous PostNext Post >> Friday, September 2, 2016 The Canadian Press Anthem of the Seas, largest cruise ship to dock in Halifax Share

director of Burleigh County Social Services Kim Osadchuk who said bullying in school reported in Chance’s obituary as "the cause of this suicide" was incorrectIn response to a request for an interview Osadchuk the agency’s director said in a statement that bullying referenced in the obituary was unknown to her agency"It was never reported or documented to this agency Bismarck Public Schools or the (Bismarck) Police Youth Bureau to allow for an opportunity to address the alleged bullying concerns" she said "Bullying is taken very seriously by Burleigh County Social Services as well as Bismarck Public Schools in our partnering efforts to protect children from the harm that it causes"Osadchuk declined to answer any further questionsUselman said in a follow-up interview that the district did consult with Chance’s parent/guardian in its investigation Burleigh County Social Services also reviewed all of the school district’s records"To assign the suicide to bullying is simply false However a student obviously has huge struggles if they contemplate suicide and so the community misreads that when the district says there was no evidence of bullying that it sounds like we’re washing our hands and I can tell you that didn’t happen" she saidSuicide among LGBT youthNorth Dakota has a suicide rate that is higher than the national average According to data from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention in 2016 North Dakota’s suicide rate was 19 per 100000 people compared to the national rate of 1342In 2016 nine youth age 18 and younger died by suicide statewide and the total number of North Dakota resident deaths that were reported as suicide was 134 according to Alison Traynor director of the state Department of Health’s Suicide Prevention ProgramThe state’s most recent youth behavioral health survey — which is administered in the spring of odd years to students in grades 7-12 — shows that youth suicide attempts and students reporting that they felt sad and hopeless continues to increase"We see that more youth are struggling but at the same time it does show us that the vast majority of youth that struggle with thoughts of suicide and symptoms of depression are reaching out for help" Traynor saidLesbian gay and bisexual youth are at a greater risk for depression suicide and substance abuses according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Lesbian gay bisexual and transgender youth are also at an increased risk of being bulliedTo accommodate transgender students Bismarck Public Schools will work with these students on a case-by-case basis according to superintendent Tamara UselmanUselman said she is aware of a few students within the school system who identify as transgender The district does not keep a list of these students but in each school building principals are aware of any students or parents who have stepped forward to share this informationFor transgender students school administrators will work with them at their respective schools for instance with a bathroom assignment The district makes these decisions in a way that creates "a peaceful environment for everyone on campus" Uselman said of a process which works to not create any issues of discomfort for any students"Our goal is to make sure the student who is in transition on gender has a place to shower and use the bathroom without feeling awkward" she saidThere are a variety of reasons why youth would not report bullyingSocial norms make a big difference in whether youth feel comfortable reporting bullying according to Traynor This can mean "codes of silence" within a school and how administrators frame bullying and reporting"It can involve messages from administrators but it also can involve the group of youth and how they’re interacting with each other" she saidBullying policiesBullying is defined in North Dakota Century Code and in 2011 a state law was passed requiring school districts to write a policy prohibiting students from bullyingBismarck Public Schools has policies on bullying discrimination and harassment The bullying policies require staff and administrators to report all known or suspected violations of the policyBullying initiated off campus or online limits the district to where it only has the authority to "impose disciplinary measures if the bullying substantially disrupted the educational environment or posed a true threat"Similarly the district investigates all reports or complaints of discrimination or harassmentCentury Code also requires school districts to provide a minimum of eight hours of training every two years to elementary middle and high school teachers and administrators The training is based on the annual needs assessment of the district and includes trauma social

This includes presentations on these topics by elementary school counselors Library media specialists present on cyberbullying in grades 3 6 and 9 and a variety of related topics are taught at the middle and high schoolsAlso last year the Bismarck Public Schools created a task force on bullying which reviewed district policies The group made no changes to the current bullying policy but created

Congress president Rahul Gandhi remained confident that his party could work out a nationwide alliance with the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections His confidence stems largely from the fact that though BSP chief Mayawati had torpedoed a seat-sharing deal with the Congress in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan a couple of days ago she had conceded the honesty which United Progressive Alliance chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Rahul showed in pursuing an alliance Rahul helpfully pointed out that alliance in states and an alliance at the Centre were two different animals and the indications he had were that the two parties would ‘come together’ for the national elections That is an imponderable There would be little profit in expending time speculating on the possibilities given the facts that the elections are a distance away and that Mayawati is a mercurial customer at the best of times File photo of Congress president Rahul Gandhi AP But there’s something else that the Congress president also said is significant "We were" he said "flexible in states In fact I was more flexible than some of our state leaders" What does this mean Quite obviously it is a more nuanced re-statement of what Mayawati had said herself: that while the Gandhi’s were honest about the alliance it was sabotaged by state Congress satraps How far this is true and in what exact way is not the point but that both Gandhi and Mayawati share this perception is This speaks volumes about the functioning of the Congress It means that state leaders are free ultimately to decide on important aspects of party policy such as pre-election alliances In a theoretical way this might not be a bad thing It is eminently desirable that vital party issues be debated and discussed at every level before a determination is reached That theoretical position would work however if the Congress had had in all other ways a democratic institutional structure and culture It doesn’t Intra-party elections are a distant memory and legislature parties have no freedom to elect their leaders The principle of electing a part of the Congress Working Committee was junked after the second split in the Congress in early 1978 led to the creation of the Congress (I) led by Indira Gandhi In the absence of an overarching democratic context then the freedom apparently given to state satraps — Kamal Nath in Madhya Pradesh and Sachin Pilot in Rajasthan — appears suspiciously like turf wars fought by other means That is to say neither Nath nor Pilot engaged with the high command about the wisdom of entering alliances in the spirit of a democratic freedom rather they sabotaged negotiations by being formalistic and rigid From the point of view of the Congress’s larger interests the failure to cement an alliance is bound to have adverse consequences both with regards to the Assembly elections later this year in the two states mentioned and the putative negotiations over a nationwide alliance for the 2019 elections Gandhi was publicly optimistic when he said the failure to sign a deal would not have an adverse impact on his party’s prospects But it certainly will in Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh where an alliance could have lengthened the odds on the existing regimes considerably In Rajasthan an alliance would have served as a token of good faith In other words Gandhi or an emissary should have been more involved in the minutiae of negotiations and asserted the high command’s jurisdictional authority Another significant statement made by Gandhi pertained to his prime ministerial aspirations He was undoubtedly diplomatic when he said he was a candidate for the top job if other parties in a proposed alliance were agreeable to his candidature But in such matters it is hard to be too diplomatic The Congress president would have been better advised to have let well alone This is not the time to discuss prime ministerial ambition Finally Gandhi did come into his own when he took the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on headlong He made several important points all valid First he said that the time had passed when Prime Minister Narendra Modi could keep blaming the Congress for everything that was falling off the precipice: the economy mainly The BJP will find it difficult to rebut the robustly pointed at the price the country was paying for ‘hatred’: the decimation of the economy signalled by the implosion of the stock market the unchecked slide of the rupee farmers’ suicides and much else Gandhi was also spot on when he said that the BJP had ‘gone to war with its own people because it wants to impose one singular suffocating memory on our 13 billion memories’ In a limited way Gandhi also spelt out his own position when he said ‘every person in the country has a stake’ in it It was a gesture to a particular type of inclusiveness that in Gandhi’s reckoning embraced rich and poor state action and liberalisation Much of this is rhetoric but as we have come to realise more than ever with the ascent of Modi rhetoric is an inextricable instrument of politics It remains for Gandhi to translate this rhetoric into outcomes which is the crucial if unfinished piece of business that will finally count To do this he will have to streamline his party so that it works as a synchronic chorus rather than singing from a perplexing array of hymn sheets He will have to ensure that the party pursues the issues he has been indefatigably hammering away at at every possible level Unfortunately the Congress has not been attacking the BJP on its beleaguered fronts with anything like energy and vigour If that is the result of a lack of conviction and a loss of morale it will be up to the boss to inject adequate quantities of both into the party DAILY POST recalls that the Senate President, He also said he had another veterinarian look at the animals three days after Brummond’s visit who gave a very different
