Play opening Thursday remembers Jon Lien the whale man of Newfoundland

first_imgST. JOHN’S, N.L. – The famous “whale man of Newfoundland” is being remembered in a new play opening in St. John’s this week.“Between Breaths” follows scientist Jon Lien’s life, moving backwards from the period shortly before his death in 2010 to his first whale rescue in 1978.Over the course of his career, Lien freed hundreds of whales from fishing nets along the coast of Newfoundland, and was respected by environmentalists and fishermen alike for his work.Award-winning playwright Robert Chafe said Lien’s mutually trusting relationship with the fishing community stood out to him during his interviews with those who knew him.“He was a scientist and a conservationist, those people are usually the antagonists to people who work in industries like the fishery,” Chafe said in an interview“But everyone I knew in the fishery who talked about Jon, when his name would come up, just spoke about him with such respect and reverence. And I thought, that’s just so beautiful that he did the work that he did, but also fostered this great respect from these people.”In the late 1970s, more whales were getting trapped in Newfoundland fishermen’s nets, as the animals swam closer to the shore looking for food.Lien quickly caught the attention of inshore fishermen for the care he took to preserve the nets as well as free the whales. He would spend hours on the water during his rescues, studying the nets to make sure they weren’t destroyed in the process.Lien was awarded the Order of Canada in 2008 for his commitment to preserving the marine environment, before he died from heart complications in 2010.Chafe began research on the script by interviewing Lien’s family, friends and colleagues, starting in 2012.He said he’s been appreciative of the support from Lien’s family during the difficult process of remembering stories about him so shortly after his death.“I saw a lot of grieving,” Chafe recalled of the early developmental stages.Lien was injured in a vehicle accident the early 2000s. His health deteriorated afterwards, and he eventually had to use a wheelchair.Chafe said he felt a desire from people to remember Lien in his younger days, doing the work he loved. That motivated the decision to tell the story backwards, as Lien uses his memories to move freely as his physical mobility declined.“The metaphor of the whale being trapped in the net, is really Jon,” said Chafe.The title comes from a lesson of Lien’s: when the whales became trapped, the animals would often try to dive deeper and swim away while between breaths.“Really, the idea for the title is that’s exactly what’s happening in the show — between breaths, Jon is going diving deeper into his past.”The feat of bringing the sea to the stage will be achieved with just a few props and creative lighting. The show is directed by Chafe’s long-time collaborator Jillian Keiley, and Steve O’Connell will play Lien.Sound also plays a big role in setting the scene, and the show features an original score by St. John’s trio The Once.“Between Breaths” premieres this weekend in St. John’s, but Chafe and his theatre company Artistic Fraud of Newfoundland hope to bring the show beyond Atlantic Canada after its initial run.The show has been in development for more than five years, and Chafe is hopeful that audiences will leave the theatre with an appreciation of the Lien who was — a friend to whales and fishermen alike.“If people walk out with a sense of who this man was, and a kind of admiration for not only the priorities of his life, but how he lived and how he executed that, that would make me very, very happy.”last_img read more

Disabled youth unleash their inner artist at UNbacked camp in Thailand

23 July 2010Hundreds of Thai children and young people, including many with disabilities, have gathered today in the country’s northeast to take part in a five-day United Nations-backed art camp that will feature classes in music, dance, literature, painting and drawing. The annual Art for All Camp, which runs in the town of Pak Chong until next Tuesday, aims to boost the social and development skills of the participants so they can learn how to become more self-reliant and improve their quality of life.During the camp, art teachers and volunteers will conduct classes for hundreds of children and youth, including some with disabilities and many from the country’s different ethnic tribes and from the three southern-most provinces of Thailand.Some of the art work produced at the camp will be used as promotional materials in the lead-up to a major meeting in 2012 on the Asia-Pacific Decade of Disabled Persons.The UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) has helped organize the camp in collaboration with the Art for All Foundation, Thailand’s culture ministry and authorities in Nakhon Ratchasima province, where the event is being staged.Shigeru Mochida, ESCAP’s Deputy Executive Secretary, told today’s opening ceremony that the commission is keen to support people with disabilities by helping to equalize opportunities and create societies that are more inclusive and barrier-free.He described the camp as “an event that has broken many social barriers. It provides a forum for young people with disabilities to express their ideas and aspirations. The art that you will create at the camp will serve as a potent expression of a future that you will help to shape.” read more

Britain welcomes Chinas Xi with royal pomp but some worry about Beijings

Britain welcomes China’s Xi with royal pomp but some worry about Beijing’s growing clout by Jill Lawless, The Associated Press Posted Oct 20, 2015 4:02 am MDT Last Updated Oct 20, 2015 at 3:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email LONDON – China’s leader quoted Chinese proverbs and William Shakespeare while Britain’s prime minister hailed a “golden age” between the two nations as a state visit festooned with regal pomp and pageantry was shadowed by concerns about national security, human rights and economic rivalry.President Xi Jinping’s trip, years in the making, aimed to cement deals giving Britain a vast new pool of investment and China greater access to European markets. But as Xi was welcomed Tuesday as an honoured guest at Buckingham Palace and Parliament, critics warned that Britain was taking a risk by courting Beijing so aggressively.“If you act like a panting puppy, the object of your attention is going to think they have got you on a leash,” James McGregor, a China expert at consulting firm APCO, told the BBC.Some British politicians, businesspeople and union members are alarmed by growing Chinese investment in key sectors of the British economy, including nuclear power, and by Chinese competition in areas such as steel production.Hundreds of U.K. steel layoffs were announced Tuesday, the first full day of Xi’s four-day visit, in a crisis that manufacturers blame on China selling steel at a loss on world markets to secure its own market share.Prime Minister David Cameron is under pressure to confront Xi about the steel industry and human rights, but China’s leader was welcomed to London with lavish tradition and military pomp — a genre at which both Britain and China excel.Xi was greeted with a 41-gun artillery salute before being driven to Buckingham Palace, where he and his wife Peng Liyuan will stay, in a gilded carriage drawn by white horses.Thousands lined the route to see Xi go by. Demonstrators from human rights and pro-Tibet groups jostled with a much larger group of Xi well-wishers whose chants of “China! China!” drowned out their rivals’ shouts of “Shame!” and “Free Tibet!”Among the protesters was dissident Chinese lawyer and activist Chen Guangcheng, who urged British leaders not to ignore human rights in favour of trade. He told the BBC that while trade is important, human rights are “like air and water, and no one can live without it.”The small protests and larger crowds of supporters followed Xi to Parliament and back to Buckingham Palace, where he later dined with Queen Elizabeth II, senior royals and dignitaries in a lavish state banquet.The queen hailed what she called Britain and China’s “global partnership” before leading guests in a toast to Xi and his wife. Prince William’s wife, Kate — wearing a red gown and a lotus flower tiara loaned by the queen — was sat prominently next to Xi, while William sat next to Peng.Xi made a short speech to both houses of Parliament, an honour that has been given to visiting politicians including President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.Britain and China have a long and sometimes antagonistic history that includes the 19th-century Opium Wars and decades of Cold War tension. But Xi quoted Shakespeare — “What’s past is prologue” — and urged the two nations to “join hands and move forward” toward peace and development.Britain’s Conservative-led government has been courting China, the world’s second-largest economy, for years. When Xi’s predecessor, Hu Jintao, paid a state visit to Britain in 2005, the countries announced $1.3 billion in trade deals. This time, Britain said the two nations would sign 30 billion pounds ($46 billion) in business agreements.Treasury chief George Osborne, a champion of closer ties, has said he wants China to be Britain’s biggest trading partner after the United States by 2025.In an interview before the visit, Cameron told China’s CCTV television that this was a “golden age” of U.K.-China relations. He said Chinese investment was good for Britain and that China benefited from “having access to a country that is a leading member of the EU, and has so many other contacts and roles in the world.”Yet economic rivalries remain. Tata Steel announced 1,200 layoffs at its British plants Tuesday, just weeks after 2,200 jobs were lost at SSI’s plant in northeast England. Tata said the layoffs were in response to “a shift in market conditions caused by a flood of cheap imports, particularly from China, a strong pound and high electricity costs.”In an emergency House of Commons debate on the layoffs, Labour Party business spokesman Kevin Brennan accused the government of being “content to allow Britain’s entire steel-making capacity to disappear in the face of blatant Chinese dumping.”China also is set to build a new nuclear power plant in southwest England, and the two governments have signed deals giving Chinese money greater access to London’s financial district.The slew of deals has sparked accusations that Britain is pandering to China to secure investment. Opposition politicians are urging Cameron to raise China’s human rights record in his several meetings with Xi this week.Others caution against relying too heavily on a country whose astonishing recent economic growth is flagging. Data released Tuesday showed China eased to a six-year low of 6.9 per cent growth in the third quarter after expanding 7 per cent in each of the previous two quarters. Some economists, however, say this year’s true rate of growth for China might be as low as 4 per cent.Andreas Fulda, a lecturer in Chinese studies at the University of Nottingham, said the British government was being overly optimistic about the economic impact of Chinese trade. He said it appeared illogical for Britain to open up its economy to China without reciprocal measures to allow European businesses into the Chinese market.“The Chinese market is not a level playing field,” he said.On Tuesday evening, Queen Elizabeth II was hosting a state banquet for Xi at Buckingham Palace, attended by senior politicians and royalty — but not by heir to the throne Prince Charles, a friend of exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama.The palace did not give a reason for Charles’ absence. He held several engagements with Xi earlier in the day, including a private meeting over tea.__Associated Press Writers Danica Kirka and Sylvia Hui in London and Joe McDonald in Beijing contributed to this report.

Security Council extends UN GuineaBissau office for another year

Under its renewed mandate, which will begin on 1 March 2016 until 28 February 2017, UNIOGBIS will continue to focus on supporting an inclusive political dialogue and national reconciliation process to strengthen democratic governance and work towards consensus on key political issues, particularly with regards to the implementation of necessary urgent reforms. The Office will also focus on providing strategic and technical advice and support in implementing the national security sector reform and rule of law strategies, as well as developing civilian and military justice systems that are compliant with international standards. In 2014, the West African nation concluded a second round of presidential elections, which are widely seen as essential to restoring constitutional order, economic growth and development following a 2012 military coup. Nevertheless, in a recent briefing to the Security Council, Miguel Trovoada, Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Guinea-Bissau and Head of UNIOGBIS, warned that the political impasse in Guinea-Bissau could delay implementation of critical reforms and erode progress in the country’s development. In today’s resolution, the Council stressed the need for the Government of Guinea-Bissau to continue to take “concrete steps” towards peace, security and stability in the country, by effectively reforming the security sector, tackling corruption, and improving public administration and the supply of basic services to the population. The Council also expressed concerns over the “ongoing political and institutional tensions” among the President, the Prime Minister, the Speaker of Parliament and heads of political parties. It called upon the leaders to work together to consolidate progress made so far, and to address the root causes of instability, with particular attention to political-military dynamics, ineffective state institutions and rule of law, impunity and human rights violations and abuses, poverty and lack of access to basic services. In addition, in the resolution the Council reiterated its concern at the threat posed by drug trafficking to the country’s peace and stability, and welcomed efforts in combating the issue. The Council also decided to review, seven months from now, the sanctions measures established under resolution 2048 (2012). Previously, the Council has expressed its readiness to consider targeted sanctions against those involved in the coup if the situation in Guinea-Bissau is not resolved. read more

The NBA Playoffs Sleepers Favorites And Best FirstRound Matchups

4Cavaliers50-3216251444510 At long last, it’s time to put regular-season basketball in the rearview mirror and move on to the NBA’s main event — the playoffs are finally here! And FiveThirtyEight is here, too, to help predict how it’ll all go down. With the help of our CARM-Elo projection model, and the betting odds1According to Sportsbook.ag. as a second opinion, what follows is our survey of both the Eastern and Western Conference postseason landscapes. And in a departure from last season, when the Warriors were near-universal favorites on the eve of the playoffs, there’s actually some uncertainty in the playoff outlook this time around. TeamRecordRatingWin Conf.Win TitleWin Conf.Win Title 7Bucks44-3815001<120 CARM-Elo chancesVegas chances How Elo is forecasting the Western Conference playoffsAs of April 12 8Wizards43-391487<1<121 7Spurs47-3516226310 Vegas odds based on the implied probability of betting line.Source: VegasInsider.com 6Heat44-381491<1<110 5Pacers48-3415473<110 1Raptors59-23168342%17%29%7% 5Jazz48-3416639531 TeamRecordRatingWin Conf.Win TitleWin Conf.Win Title Vegas odds based on the implied probability of betting line.Source: VegasInsider.com 376ers52-3016593011175 CARM-Elo ChancesVegas Chances Statistical favorite: The numbers say this might finally be a breakthrough year for the Toronto Raptors, who are in the playoffs for a fifth straight season but have only one conference finals appearance (and zero NBA Finals berths) to show for it. Everything seemed to come together for Toronto this season, from a mega-efficient offense to a defense that improved to fifth-best in basketball. Add in a career year from DeMar DeRozan and a world-beating second unit, and the result was the top seed in the East — with a 42 percent chance to win the conference, according to CARM-Elo. That number is much higher than the 30 percent chance that CARM-Elo is giving the 76ers, the team our model thinks has the second-best chance of making it to the NBA Finals. And it’s hugely better than the 14 percent we’re giving the three-time defending conference champion Cavaliers. If the regular-season indicators mean anything, Toronto has earned every bit of its favorite status.Betting favorite: Another year, another case of the stats underrating the Cleveland Cavaliers’ chances in the East. Our model struggled to assess the Cavs last season too, and LeBron James’s squad proved the data wrong by tearing through the East with only one loss en route to the NBA Finals. The same scenario is shaping up to happen this season — and Vegas knows it. That’s probably why the Cavs are favored by the markets to win the conference again (albeit as less of a favorite than in the past), despite a regular season that was unimpressive by the standards of a LeBron team. In the battle between skepticism over Cleveland’s inconsistent form and trust that James can will his team to an eighth consecutive NBA Finals,2Including his time with Miami and his second stint in Cleveland. the bettors are still giving LeBron the benefit of the doubt.Dark horse: Although our ratings are higher on the Philadelphia 76ers than the Las Vegas odds are, both predictions think the Sixers are an intriguing pick to contend for the East crown. On the one hand, Philly’s near-total lack of playoff seasoning is a troublesome indicator for the postseason, where experience matters more than we sometimes acknowledge. (A late-season injury to star big man Joel Embiid also complicates matters; Embiid is recovering but probably won’t be ready for Game 1 of Philadelphia’s opening series with the Heat.) But Philadelphia is loaded with talent, from Embiid down low to likely rookie of the year Ben Simmons at the point and No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz, who on Wednesday became the youngest player to post a triple-double. The Sixers are also playing at something close to peak form going into the playoffs, having won 16 straight games to close out the regular season. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, that’s the longest winning streak ever for a team entering the playoffs, and it’s one big reason why both our model and the Vegas odds list Philly as the only East team other than Cleveland or Toronto with a double-digit probability of winning the conference title.Best first-round series: The East doesn’t have as many quality first-round duels as the West, but the Celtics and Bucks should be an interesting matchup. Boston lost its star player, Kyrie Irving, with just a week to go before the playoffs. The Celtics have home-court advantage and enough supporting talent to win a postseason series without Irving, but the onus will be on Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier to cap off their breakout seasons with great playoff performances. On the Milwaukee side, the Bucks have largely underachieved this season, although they’ve been slightly better after firing Jason Kidd in January. They also have the best individual player in the series by far, according to Basketball-Reference.com’s Value Over Replacement Player, in Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak had an MVP-type season this year, and he possesses the skills to potentially take over a series all by himself. It’s been a year since the Bucks put a scare into the Raptors before losing in the first round, and Milwaukee could be poised to actually win this time around. 2Warriors58-241628844435 3Trail Blazers49-3316126332 4Thunder48-3416589532 2Celtics55-2715789231 6Pelicans48-3415954210 1Rockets65-17177257%44%44%35% 8Timberwolves47-3515651<110 How Elo is forecasting the Eastern Conference playoffsAs of April 12 Statistical favorite: After years of taking a backseat as Golden State dominated our pre-playoff predictions, the Houston Rockets are now front-runners to win the West. Specifically, CARM-Elo gives soon-to-be MVP James Harden and friends a 57 percent chance of making their first NBA Finals appearance this summer. Incredulous? Fine, but doubt Houston at your own peril. Remember that this season’s Rockets team shares many of the same characteristics with the Warriors back when Golden State was first making the climb toward transcendence. Teams that produce all-time great seasons like Houston has this season tend to win NBA titles at a tremendously high rate. Nothing in the regular-season numbers suggests that the Rockets should be anything other than solid favorites to take the conference — if not more.Betting favorite: There is a huge disparity between the chance our model gives the Golden State Warriors of winning the championship and what the betting markets say. CARM-Elo gives the defending NBA champs only an 8 percent chance of winning the West, tied to the team’s relatively unexceptional 58-win campaign that ended with Steph Curry injured and Steve Kerr calling his team out over a series of listless final-month losses. And yet, Golden State remains the betting market’s Western Conference co-favorite (alongside the Rockets), with an implied 44 percent chance of going to the NBA Finals for a fourth-straight season. Similar to the situation with the Cavaliers, the Warriors’ strong odds can be attributed to disagreement over how much we should read into a talented team’s regular-season struggles. The oddsmakers are clearly putting a lot more weight on Golden State’s track record than what we’ve seen on the court in 2017-18 — and considering how well we know the Warriors are capable of playing, that’s probably a good call.Dark horse: The West is so crazy that we could highlight a few teams here, but the Utah Jazz stand out in particular. According to CARM-Elo, they rank as the NBA’s third-best team going into the playoffs — trailing only the Rockets and Raptors — even after making our adjustment for playoff experience (of which the Jazz have very little). Utah put itself in a bit of an unfortunate position by losing to Portland on the final day of the regular season, which dropped the Jazz from the No. 3 seed down to No. 5. As a result, Utah lost home-court advantage in the first round, and the formidable Thunder were locked in as its first-round opponent. (It also set them up for a potential second-round collision course with the Rockets.) Even so, our model lists the Jazz as tied with OKC for the second-best chances of winning the West, and they could prove a dangerous opponent for the top seeds if they make it out of the first round.Best first-round series: CARM-Elo says the closest matchup of the first round is the aforementioned clash between the Thunder and Jazz. Oklahoma City is a slim favorite at 52 percent, by virtue of having home-court advantage. But these teams are very evenly matched: Both posted 48-34 records, and only 5 points of CARM-Elo separate their ratings. This one might be a referendum of sorts on the importance of playoff seasoning — the Jazz are the least-experienced team in the postseason field, while the Thunder rank fourth-highest behind only the Cavaliers, Warriors and Spurs. That edge might be enough to push OKC over the top, although whoever wins the prize likely has a date with the Rockets in the next round. Enjoy these teams while they last.Check out our latest NBA predictions.CORRECTION (April 12, 2018, 4:45 p.m.): A previous version of this article misstated the possibility of the Utah Jazz facing the New Orleans Pelicans in the first round if the Jazz had won their final game. Although Utah would have been the No. 3 seed if it had won, it could have played several different teams depending on the results of other games. read more

How the Spurs Boxed in Kevin Durant

As the San Antonio Spurs took the Oklahoma City Thunder apart Thursday night on their way to winning Game 5 by 28 points, Thunder forward Kevin Durant quietly battled to finish with 25 points. That’s nothing to sneeze at, but it’s still short of the sparkling numbers he had been putting up before the NBA’s Western Conference finals began.Through the first two rounds of the playoffs, Durant had been magnificent, averaging 31.4 points per game and hitting the 30-point mark in nine of 13 games. In the five games against the Spurs, Durant has hit the 30-point mark just once, and in the Thunder’s three blowout losses, he’s averaged just 22.7 points.Durant’s efficiency has also suffered. His shooting accuracy from different areas of the floor hasn’t been significantly different, but the Spurs have forced him away from his preferred spots. Shot location statistics from NBA.com show how the distribution of his true shot attempts has changed in these games (true shot attempts include field goal attempts and trips to the free-throw line, essentially all non-turnover possessions).Kevin Durant’s Distribution of True Shot AttemptsIn the Thunder’s three losses against the Spurs, far fewer of Durant’s true shooting attempts have come around the basket. Durant has been pushed back into the inefficient mid-range zone.This may seem like splitting hairs; we’re talking about a potent scorer from anywhere on the floor. But even a great scorer like Durant is much more efficient in some areas. For example, during the regular season, a Durant trip to the free-throw line had an expected value more than twice that of one of his mid-range jump shots.In fact, if we give Durant his shooting percentage from the regular season but his shot selection from the three losses against the Spurs, Durant would have a true shooting percentage of 54.4. That’s far less his 63.5 regular-season number, which ranked second in the league this season and was the best in NBA history by a player who used at least 32 percent or more of his team’s offensive possessions.Defensive pressure usually conjures images of blocked shots and steals. But by making Durant change his shot selection, the Spurs’ defense turned an elite scorer into merely a good one. read more

No Mans Sky holds a steady 30fps unless its creating new worlds

first_imgWe’ll have more No Man’s Sky coverage coming your way soon, but initial impressions from a performance standpoint are that Hello Games has done a very solid job. And you can forgive the frame rate dips when you consider the game and PS4 are generating whole new worlds, on the fly, and without crashing! No Man’s Sky has been released this week after it got delayed from its original June 21 launch so as Hello Games could add extra polish. And it looks as though the extra wait was worth it, even if there is a 900MB day one patch to download and install. The game looks beautiful, but how does it run?Right now the game is only available on PS4, with the PC version arriving worldwide on August 12. On Sony’s machine it runs at a native 1080p and aims to achieve a solid 30fps. The ever dependable DigitalFoundry crew decided to put that to the test, and the game does deliver with once exception.No Man’s Sky is actually a relatively small game in terms of assets coming in at just under 4GB (plus the day one patch). That’s because the world is procedurally generated, meaning environments are created on the fly and without load times. No load times and a solid 30fps? I’ll take that!As the video clearly shows, the one area where the frame rate suffers badly is when you enter a new world for the first time and the game’s algorithm gets busy generating what it looks like. This is especially apparent if you try and travel quickly over this world as it forms.The good news is, it doesn’t happen very often and the player is in control of how bad it gets. If you slow travel down, stop, or do a 180-degree turn the frame rate jumps back up to 30 very quickly indeed. <>last_img read more

Nikola Vlasics agent slams Marco Silva

first_imgTo Vlasic’s dad and agent, his client should be playing in Everton because the team needs him in the midfield and not in CSKA MoscowNikola Vlasic was bought by English Premier League side Everton in 2017.While there, the Croatian only appeared on 12 occasions.And that’s when coach Marco Silva decided to loan him and since this summer he’s been with CSKA Moscow in the Russian Premier League.He has played in five matches, scoring one goal.And he’s been playing really well for the team, including a good UEFA Champions League match.Roberto Firmino, LiverpoolVirgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.According to Vlasic’s agent and father, Marco Silva was wrong when he sent him on loan.“Marco Silva is under enormous pressure because he gave Nikola away on loan,” he told Club Call.“Many fans and journalists believe Everton have big problems in midfield, and Nikola is the player they need.”“Vlasic told Silva before leaving he considered himself the best midfielder in the team. The manager made a big mistake,” he added.“Nikola might stay at CSKA next season, but it’s too early to talk about it.”last_img read more

Salvation Army needs 600 more volunteers for next weeks gift distribution event

first_imgThe Salvation Army’s Red Kettle fund-raiser pays for holiday assistance programs, as well as those offered year-round. (Photo courtesy Salvation Army)The Salvation Army is desperately short on volunteers for its annual Christmas gift and food distribution event, Neighborhood Gift. Normally about 800 volunteers are needed and at the moment the organization is about 600 people short.Major Edward Markham, divisional secretary for the Salvation Army Alaska Division, said the people within the organization aren’t exactly sure why they are so short on volunteers. Part of the problem is that the two-day event is taking place a week earlier this year than normal, on Dec. 13 and 14, because that’s when the Sullivan Arena is available. He said that gives volunteer recruiters less time to jump on the season’s spirit.Another issue may be that more people are in need themselves, Markham said. “The economy being the way it is right now, the amount of folks that are coming to us have increased across the board for both us and other social service agencies.”Volunteers are needed for a variety of tasks, Markham explained, like registering families to receive the gifts.Families need to provide proof of where they live, that they are in need and how many kids they have.Volunteers then help the families select the toys and food. Others help restock the tables with items and carry things to cars and bus stops.Last year more than 7,500 children received gifts from the event. A Salvation Army spokesperson said the organization is short on toys so far this year, too.You can register to volunteer or find out where to donate here.The event is done in coordination with the United Way of Anchorage, the Food Bank of Alaska, Lutheran Social Services of Alaska, and U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots.last_img read more

Introducing Deon a tool for data scientists to add an ethics checklist

first_imgDrivendata has come out with a new tool, named, Deon, which allows you to easily add an ethics checklist to your data science projects. Deon is aimed at pushing the conversation about ethics in data science, machine learning, and Artificial intelligence by providing actionable reminders to data scientists. According to the Deon team, “it’s not up to data scientists alone to decide what the ethical course of action is. This has always been a responsibility of organizations that are part of civil society. This checklist is designed to provoke conversations around issues where data scientists have particular responsibility and perspective”. Deon comes with a default checklist, but you can also develop your own custom checklists by removing items and sections, or marking items as N/A depending on the needs of the project. There are also real-world examples linked with each item in the default checklist. To be able to run Deon for your data science projects, you need to have Python 3 or greater. Let’s now discuss the two types of checklists, Default, and Custom, that comes with Deon. Default checklist The default checklist comprises of sections on Data Collection, Data Storage, Analysis, Modeling, and Deployment. Data Collection This checklist covers information on informed consent, Collection Bias, and Limit PII exposure. Informed consent includes a mechanism for gathering consent where users have clear understanding of what they are consenting to. Collection Bias checks on sources of bias introduced during data collection and survey design. Lastly, Limit PII exposure talks about ways that can help minimize the exposure of personally identifiable information (PII). Data Storage This checklist covers sections such as Data security, Right to be forgotten and Data retention plan. Data Security refers to a plan to protect and secure data. Right to be forgotten includes a mechanism by which an individual can have his/her personal information. Data Retention consists of a plan to delete the data if no longer needed. Analysis This section comprises information on Missing perspectives, Dataset bias, Honest representation, Privacy in analysis and Auditability. Missing perspectives address the blind spots in data analysis via engagement with relevant stakeholders. Dataset bias discusses examining the data for possible sources of bias and consists of steps to mitigate or address them. Honest representation checks if visualizations, summary statistics, and reports designed honestly represent the underlying data. Privacy in analysis ensures that the data with PII are not used or displayed unless necessary for the analysis. Auditability refers to the process of producing an analysis which is well documented and reproducible. Modeling This offers information on Proxy discrimination, Fairness across groups, Metric selection,  Explainability, and Communicate bias. Proxy discrimination talks about ensuring that the model does not rely on variables or proxies that are discriminatory. Fairness across groups is a section that cross-checks whether the model results have been tested for fairness with respect to different affected groups. Metric selection considers the effects of optimizing for defined metrics and other additional metrics. Explainability talks about explaining the model’s decision in understandable terms. Communicate bias makes sure that the shortcomings, limitations, and biases of the model have been properly communicated to relevant stakeholders. Deployment This covers topics such as Redress, Roll back, Concept drift, and Unintended use. Redress discusses with an organization a plan for response in case users get harmed by the results. Roll back talks about a way to turn off or roll back the model in production when required. Concept drift refers to changing relationships between input and output data in a problem over time. This part in a checklist reminds the user to test and monitor the concept drift. This is to ensure that the model remains fair over time. Unintended use prompts the user about the steps to be taken for identifying and preventing uses and abuse of the model. Custom checklists For your projects with particular concerns, it is recommended to create your own checklist.yml file. Custom checklists are required to follow the same schema as checklist.yml. Custom Checklists need to have a top-level title which is a string, and sections which are a list. Each section in the list must have a title, a section_id, and then a list of lines. Each line must include a line_id, a line_summary, and a line string which is the content. When changing the default checklist, it is necessary to keep in mind that Deon’s goal is to have checklist items that are actionable. This is why users are advised to avoid suggesting items that are vague (e.g., “do no harm”) or extremely specific (e.g., “remove social security numbers from data”). For more information, be sure to check out the official Drivendata blog post.

Alliance MP quits party over presidential elections decision updated

first_imgCitizens’ Alliance MP Pavlos Milonas has quit the party because he disagreed with its chairman, Yiorgos Lillikas, running for president in next year’s elections.Milonas however, will not give up his parliamentary seat and will continue as an independent.“I want to announce my decision to leave the Citizens’ Alliance and to continue my parliamentary action as an independent,” he said.Milonas said he owed the decision to the need to respect himself first and foremost.“There are serious disagreements, mainly with Yiorgos Lillikas’ decision to stand as candidate for president in the coming elections.”He added that his primary goal was to reverse the occupation of the country’s north and bring change to the internal administration by putting an end to the influence political parties had in every aspect of daily life.He charged Disy and Akel for the destruction of the economy, corruption, as well as their cooperation on the Cyprus problem.“These were my unwavering positions before the election and they will remain so. There are no Godsend saviours, only collectiveness and unity of all the forces to achieve the targets that have been set.”The party said it respected Milonas’ decision to quit.“It is politically ethical for someone to quit when they cannot accept the decision of the party’s majority,” it said in a statement.The party said it never had never abandoned its principles: “We were, and continue to be against the bizonal, bicommuncal federation and we won’t negotiate it because it is the official partition of our country.”The party added that it was still against the bailout adjustment programme because it created inequalities and drove a large section of the people to poverty and social exclusion.Milonas’ departure was followed by an announcement from six other members who said they were quitting their positions within the party for the same reason, including deputy chairman Stelios Americanos and vice chairman Stelios Stylianou.In a statement, the six members said they had proposed consulting with the other like-minded parties in a bid to find a common candidate but that was rejected.You May LikeClassmates.comLook For Any High School Yearbook, It’s FreeClassmates.comUndoFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
