EU Council Instructs European Commission to Include Western Sahara in Fisheries

Rabat- The 28 European Union member states have approved a mandate instructing the European Commission to open new negotiations to include Western Sahara in the EU-Morocco fisheries deal and to consolidate the partnership between the two parties.Earlier today, the Council of the European Union adopted the negotiations mandate, ordering the commission to include the adjacent waters into the new fisheries deal, Maghreb Arab Press (MAP) reported, quoting a European source.The source added that the mandate states that “the waters off the coast” of the region will be “covered by the fisheries partnership between Morocco and the EU.” According to MAP, the negotiating mandate falls within the framework of a joint statement issued by Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Nasser Bourita and EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini, on February 27, 2018.The statement came in response to the ruling handed by the European Court of Justice (ECJ) on the EU-Fisheries Agreement, which decided that the fisheries agreement between the EU and Morocco is, “valid insofar as it is not applicable to Western Sahara or to its adjacent waters,” adding that, if the EU and Morocco included the Western Sahara region in their agreement, it would violate certain rules of “international law applicable to relations between the EU and Kingdom of Morocco.”The Moroccan and the European Union officials reiterated their commitment to the strategic partnership and their determination to preserve and strengthen it.Both parties have agreed to further reinforce their political dialogue and preserve the stability of trade relations. read more

Syria UN observer mission to end to be replaced by liaison office

“The mission will come to an end on midnight on Sunday,” Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Edmund Mulet told correspondents after briefing the 15-member body in closed consultations on the future of the UN Supervision Mission in Syria (UNSMIS) and the letter of Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon proposing a continued UN presence in the form of a liaison office.“In the meantime, we’re working with our colleagues in the Department of Political Affairs to prepare the ground in Damascus to establish this liaison office,” Mr. Mulet added.Syria has been wracked by violence, with an estimated 17,000 people, mostly civilians, killed since the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad began some 17 months ago. In the previous two weeks, there have been reports of an escalation in violence in many towns and villages, as well as the country’s two biggest cities, Damascus and Aleppo.Initially set up in April for 90 days, UNSMIS’ mandate was extended for another 30 days in late July when the Council adopted resolution 2059. That resolution also indicated that further renewals to UNSMIS’ mandate would be possible only if it could be confirmed that the use of heavy weapons had ceased and a reduction in violence by all sides was sufficient to allow the mission to implement its mandate. With the 30-day extension, the mission’s mandate is set to expire on Sunday.“There was a general feeling that the conditions to continue UNSMIS were not fulfilled, but there was also a consensus about the need of keeping a UN presence in Damascus,” Gerard Araud, Permanent Representative of France, which holds the Council’s presidency this month, told correspondents before Mr. Mulet spoke.“On the basis of this consensus, as President of the Security Council, I sent a letter to the Secretary-General to tell him that we take note of his letter and in fact we agree with his proposal of creating a liaison office in Damascus,” Mr. Araud said.In his letter, Mr. Ban acknowledged that the conditions to continue the mission had not been achieved, but stressed that the UN cannot discontinue its assistance to the Syrian people in helping to find an end to the crisis. Mr. Ban also urged continued support to the Joint Special Envoy of the United Nations and League of Arab States, a post first filled by former Secretary-General Kofi Annan and now awaiting the appointment of a replacement, following Mr. Annan’s resignation. “I think it is imperative for the United Nations to have a presence in Syria that can work in other areas to support me in utilizing my good offices, in particular, to support the work of the Joint Special Envoy in mediating and facilitating a peaceful resolution to the crisis,” Mr. Ban wrote. “I intend therefore to work in the immediate future towards establishing an effective and flexible United Nations presence in Syria,” the Mr. Ban said. Both Mr. Araud and Mr. Mulet stressed the desired flexibility of the new structure. Mr. Mulet said that, in order not to have a gap in Damascus, staff already on the ground, who could work in the new office, were already being identified. “UNSMIS will fade out, but there will be a UN presence,” Mr. Araud said. read more

Sri Lanka must fulfil the rights of families of the disappeared –

“The widespread use of enforced disappearances for many decades has left profound wounds in the society and a deep sense of mistrust among the relatives,” the group said in preliminary observations at the end of a 10-day official visit to Sri Lanka.The Geneva-based independent human rights experts noted “an almost complete lack of accountability and decisive and sustained efforts to search for the truth – in particular the determination of the fate or whereabouts of those who disappeared.”They flagged the absence of a comprehensive and effective reparation program and social, psychological and economic support for the relatives.The Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances is comprised of Houria Es-Slami (Morocco), Bernard Duhaime (Canada),Tae-Ung Baik (Republic of Korea), Ariel Dulitzky (Argentina) and Henrikas Mickevicius (Lithuania). The group was established by the UN Commission on Human Rights in 1980 to assist families in determining the fate and whereabouts of disappeared relatives.In their statement, the experts welcomed the commitments made by the new Government of Sri Lanka to embark on comprehensive measures to ensure truth, justice and reparation for victims, as well as prevent any recurrence of disappearances in the future. They also noted “encouraging steps such as the official invitation to visit the country, the “excellent cooperation” received during the visit, the government’s increasing openness, and the commitments expressed by various authorities they met, including to establish a dedicated Office for Missing Persons.“These promises and commitments must now be followed by concrete efforts and tangible results,” according to the group. “Sri Lanka must seize this historic opportunity and adopt urgent and profound measures to satisfy the rights of the victims as a fundamental step which will help lay the ground for a sincere reconciliation process,” it said.As one first measure, the experts urged the authorities to give clear instructions at all level of the military, security and law-enforcement forces that all type of threats, harassment and intimidation towards families searching for their loved ones must immediately cease, will not be tolerated and will be severely sanctioned.The Working Group visited – in addition to Colombo – Batticaloa, Galle, Jaffna, Kilinochchi, Mannar, Matale, Mullaitivu and Trincomalee. They met with the President, the Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, and other high-level State authorities, as well as representatives of civil society organizations, and with hundreds of relatives of disappeared and missing throughout the country.A final report on the visit will be presented to the UN Human Rights Council in September 2016. read more

Despite progress in childbirth safety one woman or baby dies every 11

In a joint appeal for all nations to do more to provide better medical care for all, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) outlined several ways to help protect the 2.8 million pregnant women and newborns who die every year.A skilled pair of hands to help mothers and newborns around the time of birth, along with clean water, adequate nutrition, basic medicines and vaccines, can make the difference between life and death. #EveryChildALIVE https://t.co/H3cKi5QgFz— Henrietta H. Fore (@unicefchief) September 19, 2019 UN Inter-agency Group for Child/Maternal Mortality Estimation (IGME)Under-five mortality rate (deaths per 1,000 live births) by country, 2018.$200 billion needed to achieve healthcare targets Some $200 billion a year is needed to achieve all the primary health goals that are required for quality universal health coverage for all, according to Dr Peter Salama, Executive Director in charge of Universal Healthcare targets at WHO.Welcoming the many positive changes in tackling child and maternal mortality globally since 2000, Dr Salama insisted that many countries were in a position to achieve much more, without having to find new funding.“The biggest difference in terms of when we discuss financing between the MDG (Millennium Development Goals) era (2000-2015) and the SDG era, is the real acknowledgement that the money is there for many countries, they just have to spend it on the right things,” he said.“So we’re not turning to the donor community and saying, ‘Give us $200 billion.’ We’re turning to middle-income and higher-income and even some lower-income countries that are stable and saying, ‘Actually, if you choose the right things, you could meet these goals within your current budgets.’”‘Staggering success’ in reducing deathsSince 2000, Dr. Salama insisted, the overall story of maternal and child mortality had been “a staggering success that we don’t often see in global and health development”.He pointed to a 50 per cent reduction in deaths in children under 15 years old – from 14.2 million in 2000 to 6.2 million deaths in 2018 – and a 35 per cent reduction in maternal deaths over the same period. Their recommendations tackle immediate and underlying problems, such as ensuring that midwives have water to wash their hands and helping teenage girls to stay in school longer, where there is less chance of them getting pregnant.In addition, communities should have access to cheap medicines, such as oral rehydration salts used to treat diarrhoea, and “ten cent vaccines” to keep tuberculosis at bay, the UN agencies insisted.Citing 2018 data showing that newborns – babies in their first month – accounted for around half of the 5.3 million deaths among under-fives, WHO and UNICEF also highlighted the need for other structural changes.These include ensuring that pregnant mothers eat a sufficiently nutritious diet to stave off illnesses linked to malnutrition.Sub-Saharan babies, 10 times more likely to die All of these things “can make the difference between life and death”, said UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore, in a statement accompanying new data showing that in sub-Saharan Africa, women in childbirth are nearly 50 times more likely to die, than in richer regions, and their babies are 10 times more likely to perish in their first month.According to 2018 figures, one in 13 children in sub-Saharan Africa also died before their fifth birthday, which is 15 times more than in Europe, where the rate is one in 196.Beyond sub-Saharan Africa, the joint WHO/UNICEF report also expressed concern about high mother and baby mortality rates linked to poverty in Southern Asia.Taken together, both regions account for around eight in 10 of all maternal and child deaths, highlighting vast inequalities in healthcare worldwide.Going to Sweden ‘can reduce mother’s chances of dying by 100’“If I look to my own native country, Sweden (a woman) who travels from the highest mortality regions to the world to Sweden, she reduces her overall mortality rate by 100”, UNICEF’s Chief of Health, Dr Stefan Peterson, told journalists in Geneva.Under global healthcare targets agreed by the international community in 2015 as part of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030 Agenda, Goal 3.2 calls for fewer than 70 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births by 2030. “The world will fall short of this target by more than one million lives if the current pace of progress continues”, the agencies warned.Another SDG target (3.2) urges countries to reduce deaths of babies in their first month of life, to at least 12 per 1,000 live births, and to bring down mortality among under-fives, to at least 25 per 1,000 live births. In 2018, 121 countries had already achieved this under-five mortality rate, according to WHO, while among the remaining 74 States, 53 will need to accelerate progress to reach the SDG target on child survival by 2030. read more

OMalley lecturer gives insights into changing world of marketing

It’s Brock University students like Ashley Howard and Mitchell Cowan who will lead the evolution of the marketing and advertising industry.The two students took first place and won $2,000 in the 16th annual Grant Dobson Case Competition Tuesday afternoon.Terry O’Malley chats with Ashley Howard and Mitchell Cowan, winners of this year’s Grant Dobson Case Competition.Hosted by the Department of Communication, Popular Culture and Film, the Grant Dobson Case Competition provides students the opportunity to showcase their superior creativity and presentation skills to a panel of industry experts.The competition was followed by the annual Terry O’Malley Lecture in Marketing and Advertising Tuesday night, where keynote speaker Andrew Bailey, partner and CEO of The&Partnership, North America, said the industry is changing rapidly.Bailey, a Welland native who has gone on to become a Manhattan-based marketing leader, presented on A New Model for a New World – the Agency of the Future at the event held in the in the newly renovated Sean O’Sullivan Theatre.He said industry clients are now seeking interdisciplinary methods to build their brands. Bailey’s lecture explored these changes in modern marketing and how his agency is working to answer the needs of today.Bailey was one of the judges of the Dobson competition, and was joined by former O’Malley lecturer and the Director of Content Creation at Traffik, Greg Plata, as well as Peter Shier, President and Partner at Naked Creative Consultancy, Ania Lindenbergs, Executive Director of Brand Marketing at the University of Toronto and Lynn Fletcher, Partner at Fletcher Weir Consulting.Named after the late Grant Dobson, who served as the Executive Director of the Office of External Relations at Brock University, the competition was implemented to further the objectives set by O’Malley as a platform within the Lecture in Marketing and Advertising to deliver opportunities for students to learn about and implement the current strategies of marketing, advertising and the mass media.This fall, students were challenged to create a unique marketing campaign for the travel accommodation site, Airbnb, Inc. and pitch their campaigns to the panel of judges. The campaign was to be targeted at Canadian Millennials between the ages of 18-24 with an objective of increasing the number of Airbnb profiles and site activity.First place winners, Howard and Cowan, presented a compelling and unique campaign that took advantage Parks Canada’s campaign to waive entrance fees to all national parks in 2017. With their clear implementation and research into millennial consumer behaviour, Howard and Cowan took home the grand prize of $2,000. Howard also received the Mark Smyka Best Presenter Award.“The Grant Dobson Case Competition has helped me expand my marketing portfolio even more,” said Howard.In second place were students Rebecca Gauvin, Celine Da Costa, Madison Johnston, Sydney Locche receiving the $1,200 prize, followed by students Bliss Gatenby, Sierra Dietz and Marisa Whitecross receiving the $800 prize.“This event is so worthwhile because we get real life experience,” said Rebecca Gauvin, a third-year Business Communications student and finalist.According to O’Malley, world-renowned and award-wining marketing icon and Niagara native, the Case Competition does more than allow students to exercise their creativity.“We want to expose the students to two elements: highly successful contemporary professionals currently making news in their fields; and, with the Dobson Case Competition, put them in front of respected and proven professionals,” says O’Malley. “The students will see the real world and hopefully be inspired to realize they, too, can achieve beyond their Brock days.”According to O’Malley, “some of the most recognized individuals in the communications world have been part of this day helping to put Brock on a much larger plateau. It’s our hope our students take advantage of this opportunity.”View more photos from the event on the Faculty of Social Sciences’ Facebook Page at facebook.com/brockufoss.Student finalists of the 16th Annual Grant Dobson Case Competition in Marketing and Advertising. read more

NHS bed blocking at monthly worst level on record

first_img“The forthcoming Autumn Statement offers an opportunity for the Government to provide more money for the NHS and social care, and to agree to a cross-party commission to review how we can make the NHS sustainable for the long term.”Without a serious look at what the NHS needs in funding, we will remain in a state of constant winter.”Find out more about Telegraph Private Health Insurance provided by AXA PPP.  Limited Offer: 2 months FREE + a £50 M&S voucher when you join before 1 November 2016. Conditions applyA spokeswoman for NHS England said: “It is important patients who are well enough to leave hospital can do so at the earliest opportunity, and these figures underline the importance of joined-up care within the NHS and the dependence of hospitals on well-functioning social care services – particularly for older people living at home.” The number of patients delayed at midnight on the last Thursday of July – used to provide a snapshot of levels of bed blocking – is also at a record high, the figures show.There were 6,364 patients taking up beds at this point, the highest monthly figure since the data was first collected in August 2010.Clare Marx, president of the Royal College of Surgeons, said bed capacity was a “major concern” and warned that the NHS would “remain in a state of constant winter” unless funding issues were addressed.She said: “Patients’ treatment is too often delayed because there is no space on wards for them after their operations.”Unless the NHS and social care does more to help patients leave hospital sooner and the elective bed capacity increases, I fear we will not see waiting times improve. Without a serious look at what the NHS needs in funding, we will remain in a state of constant winterClare Marx, Royal College of Surgeons president The number of days lost through so-called “bed blocking” in England is at its highest monthly level on record, new figures show.Patients taking up beds when they no longer required hospital care took up 184,188 days in July compared to the 147,376 days in the same period last year, according to NHS England data.Reader Service: Get fast track appointments with Telegraph Private Health Insurance provided by AXA PPPThe figure, the highest since records began in 2010, marks a rise from the 171,298 days lost through bed blocking in June.Bed blocking occurs when someone is medically fit to be discharged, but care has not yet been organised to help them outside of hospital.

Larry Smith is 2017 First Citizen

first_imgWhen the U.S. Army sent Col. Larry Smith to Vancouver Barracks in 1989, it gave him the opportunity to work with community leaders.Now Smith has been recognized as one of those community contributors. The Community Foundation for Southwest Washington announced Friday that Smith has been named 2017 First Citizen.“So many people are worthy of this award,” Smith, 75, said Friday afternoon. “I’m completely flabbergasted.”He will be honored on Nov. 9 in a 4 p.m. presentation at WareHouse ’23, 100 Columbia St. The First Citizen program is a partnership of the Community Foundation and The Columbian; the event’s presenting sponsor is Regents Bank.In his nomination, George Francisco wrote: “Virtually every citizen of our community has benefitted” from Smith’s efforts in the public sector as well as in his community roles.Smith’s volunteer service includes the Parks Foundation, the local chapter of the American Red Cross, Loaves and Fishes, the Community Military Appreciation Committee, Meals on Wheels and the Veterans Court advisory board. He serves as the host for several annual community events.Smith, who served two combat tours in Vietnam, said he can trace it back to when he came to Vancouver Barracks.As the 104th Division’s senior Army adviser, “I had a public outreach role,” Smith said. “I was an active-duty, full-time Army officer.”Other officers in the 104th Division “were reservists, with full-time civilian jobs. They could not be the voice of the 104th, so I had an opportunity to work with the city,” Smith said.last_img read more

Owner explains Luepke closure plans for downtown Vancouver building

first_imgDowntown Vancouver mainstay Luepke Flowers and Finds closed its doors Thursday after 110 years in operation. An initial set of notices posted in the store’s window earlier this week did not offer a reason for the closure, but the store’s owner, Bruno Amicci, spoke to The Columbian on Thursday to shed some light on the circumstances that led to the decision and his plans for the future of the store’s building, which he also owns.The biggest factor was competition, he said. The widespread availability of flowers online and in grocery stores made it increasingly difficult for the florist shop to sustain the level of customer traffic it once enjoyed. Too many shoppers were opting for the convenience of ordering online or visiting the floral department at their supermarket, he said, and those sellers also were able to undercut Luepke Flowers on pricing.“It was a very sad decision,” Amicci said.The competition problem has dogged Luepke in recent years. The store — originally known as Luepke Florist — was founded in 1909 by Frank and Edla Luepke and passed through three generations of family ownership before being purchased in 2004 by its longtime manager Maria Adler and her husband. The Adlers announced in late 2014 that they planned to retire and close the store, and their explanation was similar to Amicci’s — increased competition had eaten up the store’s revenue.Amicci purchased the Luepke building in early 2014, and when he learned about the Adlers’ decision, he stepped in to buy the florist shop and keep it operating. He also embarked on a project to revitalize the Luepke building, turning it into a retail and food destination called Luepke Station. The renovations were completed in 2015, and a brewpub called Tap Union Freehouse opened in the western half of the building in 2016.The florist shop was renamed Luepke Flowers and Finds. It had a strong first year, Amicci said, but ultimately it couldn’t escape the competitive pressure from other flower retailers.last_img read more

12 indicted in bust of Fairview Bloods gang

first_imgFederal officials announced a massive gang bust in Anchorage on Thursday.Download AudioActing U.S. attorney Kevin Feldis announces the first indictment in Alaska that alleges the presence of a nationally recognized gang. Photo: Zachariah Hughes/KSKA.Delano Williams of Anchorage is still being sought. Photo: U.S. Department of JusticeThe sprawling indictment from the U.S. Attorney’s office details allegations of drug trafficking, money laundering, illegal firearm possession, and violence by 12 individuals based in Anchorage’s Fairview neighborhood.Speaking during a press conference, U.S. Attorney Kevin Feldis explained how the multi-agency collaboration built a case against the Fairview MOB — which stands for Member Of Bloods.“The Fairview MOB gang members are alleged to be associated with the national Bloods gang. This case here in Alaska, this federal indictment is the first time that we have federally charged a gang activity in Alaska that is alleged to have ties with national gang activity.”The indictment outlines alleged crimes as far back as 2012, with profits from the sale of heroin, crack, and cocaine being laundered through LA-based entertainment companies.Existing criminal records from the Alaska court system show several of the indicted men face charges of assault with a deadly weapon. Three are charged with an attempted murder in May. Another, Michael “Boogie” Reynold is charged with a double-homicide that happened in January in East Anchorage.The Bloods are a Los Angeles-based gang. The picture shows their gang symbol. Photo: Shawn Ishihara via Wikimedia Commons.Anchorage District Attorney Clint Campion says the case is the result of an aggressive task force convened in January after a high-profile spike in homicides and shootings.“There was a moment in early February, as the chief says, where we had to step back and say we have to take a step back and have a different approach. And I distinctly remember members of our federal law enforcement agencies coming to the Anchorage Police Department, meeting with us, and talking about how they could help. And I think the investigation that led to yesterday’s arrests and the indictments preceding it are the culmination of that effort.”It’s not clear how much of the violent crime from last winter’s spike is related to alleged illegal activities by Fairview Bloods.Still, Christopher Constant — a vocal member of the Fairview Community Council running for the area’s Assembly seat — says there’s a sense of relief that the task force is making strides on public safety.“It’s definitely an issue that people have come forward and asked about consistently, and I think today is proof that something has changed, that there is some active enforcement, that there is a partnership tackling a problem.”Of the 12 people indicted, 10 are Anchorage residents, all of them in their 20s. Two others are from Los Angeles.Police are asking for the public’s help locating the only two men not currently in custody — Delano Williams of Anchorage, who also goes by “D,” and Dearon Walton of Los Angeles.last_img read more

The Original Story of Pinocchio is Too Scary for Children

first_imgAlready a strange tale, the earliest story of Pinocchio turns out to be even more delusional and fantastic than the well-known Disney rendition. Le avventure di Pinocchio was written by Carlo Collodi, an Italian author who had experience translating French fairy tales into his native language. He was invited to try his hand at original productions and found success with Pinocchio.Walt Disney version of PinocchioIts first publication was in 1881 in a children’s magazine Giornale per i bambini. Children’s literature was a new field in mass publication. Increasing literacy rates helped establish the new art form which was for the first time specifically aimed at young audiences.By this point, the Grimm brothers had already published over 200 fairy tales. It could be argued that Collodi was influenced by them, given the original turn of events in Pinocchio.AdChoices广告inRead invented by TeadsPinocchio by Enrico Mazzanti (1852-1910) – the first illustrator (1883) of Le avventure di Pinocchio. Storia di un burattino, colored by Daniel DONNAUpon publication it first ran as a serial, featuring regularly in the Giornale over a four-month period. Collodi finished off the adventures of his magical, albeit impetuous, boy when Pinocchio is hanged for his misdeeds.Though such an abrupt and morbid end would scarcely be allowed in today’s young literature, this turn of events hardly hindered the story’s popularity.A giant statue of Pinocchio in the park Parco di Pinocchio. Photo by Collodi Adrian Michael CC BY 2.5Readers were obsessed and wanted more. Using the omnipotent power of fairy tales, Collodi revives Pinocchio through the magic of the Blue Fairy, and the wooden boy continues onto more mischievous and foolhardy adventures. Revival of the serial brought on twice as many episodes, rounding it all off in an ending comparable to that which Disney fans are familiar with.Related Video: Swing Wing Toy Commercial (1960s)Trouble from the beginning, the Pinocchio in the original Italian fairy tale is set up for failure. Rather than a loving man wishing for a son, Geppetto is the impoverished neighbor of a carpenter who donated a talking hunk of wood to him. Geppetto carves what was meant to be a new leg for the neighbor’s dining table. Perhaps that would have been better time spent. Pinocchio goes from adventure to adventure, gambling away money, being duped repetitively by the same conspiring duo, and failing to be the son Geppetto had always dreamed of.Pinocchio puppets in a puppet shop window in Florence. Photo by Vladimir Menkov CC BY-SA 3.0In fact, the reader first meets a talking cricket who’s lived in the puppeteer’s house for a century when he warns Pinocchio against being a bad boy. Unhappy with his words, Pinocchio throws a hammer at the cricket, killing it. There goes Jiminy’s storyline.The one detail changed that is potentially creepier and more obscene than the original story is the renaming of Collodi’s Toyland as Pleasure Island. In the original story, Pinocchio runs away with a friend he meets on the way to school to Toyland: a place where you never have to work.Pinocchio, by Carlo Chiostri (1901)They simply spend the next five months playing every day. In the film, the things the boys get up to are considerably more adult themed, and perhaps a 1940s way of teaching boys that gambling, smoking, and drinking are bad.The worst element that differs between the book and the film version is arguably the scene when Pinocchio and his friend begin to turn into donkeys because of their careless adventures in Toyland/Pleasure Island. What Disney doesn’t show you is that Collodi had Pinocchio turn fully into a donkey.Totò portrayed Pinocchio in Toto in ColorAs such, he is sold to a man who tries to kill the donkey by drowning him in the sea so that he can be skinned. However, fish eat the flesh of the donkey and Pinocchio escapes from the carcass as well as the evil man. Even if the story was aimed at adults, some might agree that the original Italian tale is not for sensitive audiences.Read another story from us: The true story of Pocahontas is sadder and less romantic than the enduring mythsDespite its dark nature, Le Avventure di Pinocchio has been translated into 300 languages as of 2018. It is the most translated secular book in the whole world.last_img read more

Rare Manuscript Found Reveals Massive Lost World of 16th Century Books

first_imgHernando Colón (anglicized to Ferdinand Columbus) was born in 1488 to explorer Christopher Columbus, or Cristóbal Colón in Spanish, and his mistress Beatriz Enriquez de Arana. Although an out-of-wedlock child, Colón was recognized by his father. Like father like son, Colón also had a project which was larger than life. While Columbus was exploring the oceans and pursuing a quest to find the New World, his son was avidly trying to read every book he could lay hands on. In fact, he aimed “to create a universal library ‘containing all books, in all languages and on all subjects, that can be found both within Christendom and without’,” according to the Guardian.For his zealous effort, Colón even hired a fleet of scholars to go through the books he owned, asking them to produce quick summaries for what would be a ground-breaking 16-volume manuscript with cross-references to other items in the library collection. He would personally proofread and edit each of those summaries before submitting them to the manuscript.Hernando ColónThe manuscript was called Libro de los Epítomes (The Book of Epitomes) and has been compared to being a Middle Age search engine due to its extensive cross-referencing. In it, the knowledge of the books and other early print material collected by Colón was meticulously distilled and classified.AdChoices广告inRead invented by TeadsFor centuries, The Book of Epitomes was considered lost, until it was recently identified as part of the Arnamagnæan Collection at the University of Copenhagen, the Guardian reports. The summaries fill over 2,000 pages and a great deal of them refer to books that have been entirely lost to history. For shorter volumes, the scribes added one-pagers; for books such as those of the great Greek philosophers more extensive abstracts taking up dozens of pages were added.Related Video: Mysterious Ancient Societies That DisappearedThe manuscript was, in fact, one of four means of navigating through Colón’s library. According to The Arnamagnæan Institute, Colón had “four types of inventories to keep track of his books,” included “a list of authors, a list of sciences (that is, subjects), a list of materials (that is, themes of keywords) and finally a list of epitomes.” Each of these “could be cross-referenced through numbers assigned to the books in each of the lists.”Colón tirelessly added to the book collection until his death in 1539. It’s estimated that the library comprised around 15,000 volumes; sadly, only a quarter of these are known to have survived. After his death, Colón’s collection was relocated to Seville Cathedral, where negligence led to the loss of much of the library.Cambridge-based scholar Dr. Edward Wilson-Lee, author of a recently published biography of Hernando Colón titled The Catalogue of Shipwrecked Books, has said The Book of Epitomes is like a window into a “lost world of 16th century books,” reports the Guardian.Photo courtesy of Suzanne Reitz/Arnamagnæan Institute, University of Copenhagen“It’s a discovery of immense importance, not only because it contains so much information about how people read 500 years ago, but also, because it contains summaries of books that no longer exist, lost in every other form than these summaries,” he said.The collection in which The Book of Epitomes has now resurfaced is ascribed to Icelandic-Danish scholar and collector Árni Magnússon, who lived from 1663 until 1730.Upon his death, Magnússon gifted his personal book collection to the University of Copenhagen. The great majority of his 3,000 volumes donation is in Icelandic and other Nordic languages. Only about 20 items are in Spanish, including The Book of Epitomes, and the language barrier was likely a reason why hardly anyone paid attention to it over the last few centuries.Illustration from La Piteuse Complainte, from the works of Pierre Gringore, with handwritten note by Fernando ColónIn 2013, during a visit to the Arnamagnæan Institute, Guy Lazure, an Associate Professor at Canada’s University of Windsor and a researcher on Colón, was the first to point out the manuscript could be connected with Hernando Colón’s library. Following which, other scholars were contacted by the Danish-based institute to investigate and confirm the find.The information eventually reached Colón’s biographer, Wilson-Lee, and co-author María Pérez Fernández. In collaboration with the Arnamagnæan Institute, Wilson-Lee and Fernández are due to work on digitizing the long lost manuscript.It’s surprising that The Book of Epitomes reappeared in a country so far north, and how, in the first place, a copy of it came to be a possession of Árni Magnússon. One possibility is that it journeyed with a bunch of other manuscripts, from Seville to Copenhagen, through diplomatic channels.Signature of Ferdinand Columbus in a lease contract dated 1534, preserved at the Provincial Historical Archive of Seville, SpainBack in the 16th century, Spain was the wealthiest country on the planet and its prowess was reflected in undertakings such as the voyages of Christopher Columbus. In the same spirit of achieving greatness, his son wanted a library of the sort never seen before. A universal library that would function like “the brain” of the powerful Spanish empire.If Colón had someone to look up to for such an aspiration, it was definitely his explorer-father, who was confident enough to believe Spain would one day reign over the entire known world.Hernando Colón’s houseColón himself traveled a lot, sometimes even accompanying his father. He also authored one of the earliest biographies on Columbus. “Between 1509 and his death in 1539, Colón traveled all over Europe — in 1530 alone he visited Rome, Bologna, Modena, Parma, Turin, Milan, Venice, Padua, Innsbruck, Augsburg, Constance, Basle, Fribourg, Cologne, Maastricht, Antwerp, Paris, Poitiers and Burgos,” notes the Guardian.The purpose of his extensive traveling time was again to collect books and any other printed material, for example, tavern posters or news pamphlets. At the time, his mass of books was called Biblioteca Hernandina and it grew to be at least three times the size of other private library collections of the era.Colón also had some intriguing reading habits. On each book, he noted where and at what cost the copy was purchased — in what currency the exchange rate that day. He was also keen to note where he was reading the book and his thoughts as he moved through the pages. Colón also kept to strict protocols of organizing his collection of books, so the production of The Book of Epitomes should come as no surprise.Biblioteca Colombina, 1913At the time the biggest private library in Europe, today Biblioteca Hernandina is called Biblioteca Colombina. The collection has shrunk to as few as 4,000 titles. While it was stored at Seville Cathedral, some of the copies are said to have been stolen; others were damaged in incidents such as flooding.Read another story from us: The Ancient Cathedral Library Where all the Books are Chained to the ShelvesBeyond the loss of books, the remnants of Colon’s great project are here with us, and his character teaches a fantastic story about a man who was resolute to gather all the books out there. If not read them all, at least have a brief idea of what they were all about. Unknowingly, Colón was reinventing the very idea of knowledge.last_img read more

New York New York – Reported by Elite Traveler t

first_imgNew York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle MagazineHublot is further strengthening its presence and brand image in the world of skiing! Maria Riesch (born 24th November 1984 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria) has become our number one Alpine skier. Double Olympic champion in the Super Combined and Slalom at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics, she took the Gold Medal in the Slalom at the Val d’Isère 2009 World Championships and is currently No. 1 in the FIS* classification. There was an immediate spark between the hugely talented skier, with her winner’s mentality, and Jean-Claude Biver, CEO of Hublot. Now, at the top of her game and on excellent form, she has even greater ambitions for these World Championships, taking place in her home territory from the 7th to the 20th of February 2011. She currently leads the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup General ClassificationThe Maria Riesch phenomenon Hailing from a long line of female all-round skiers, Maria Riesch began skiing in her native Bavaria at just three years of age. Entering the World Cup very early on, the many-time Junior World Champion distinguished herself from the very beginning, finishing in the top 10 several times, particularly in the slalom. Her meteoric rise was hampered by serious injuries which frequently kept her off the slopes. Spared injury since the 2006-2007 season, she has reached the highest level of the sport, with exceptional performances in both speed events (downhill and Super G) and technical contests (giant slalom and special slalom). She is now a star of the world circuit and the leading figure in German Alpine skiing.Hublot, Official Timekeeper for the world of skiing Hublot has always been closely linked to the mountains and skiing. Of course, this is partly due to its origins, and the Swiss culture that underpins its values, but also to its deep attachment to the world of sport in general. In the luxury watchmaking world, Hublot is an ultra-inventive brand that has formed extraordinary associations with sports such as football, Formula 1, sailing and polo, and always at the very highest level. In 2010, Hublot was the first luxury brand to forge links with competitive skiing. Champion skiers Bode Miller and Dario Cologna became its distinguished ambassadors and the watch brand was appointed “Official Timekeeper” for the FIS Ski World Championships, not only in the Alpine discipline (Garmisch-Partenkirchen, 7th – 20th February 2011) but also in Nordic skiing (Oslo, 24th February – 6th March 2011). Having signed a long-term partnership as official Time Keeper and Official Watch with the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships, Hublot now has a presence at all races, both at the start in the shape of a Hublot clock and on the large screens at the finish, as well as on the aerials of all the TV channels broadcasting the races. In Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Hublot will also be the “Official Watch” of the Swiss-Ski House 2011, the rallying point for the champions and all the supporters throughout the competition. A 4-metre high Hublot totem clock will be installed on-site to welcome visitors. The watch brand has also been involved in organising the celebrations for the 100th anniversary of the first ever Alpine ski race at Crans Montana, with the installation of a commemorative plinth and the organisation of a full weekend of events on the 2nd and 3rd of April featuring appearances from numerous skiing champions and legends, including Dario Cologna. It is also a partner of the Courchevel Ski School which aims to encourage the transmission of expertise and help secure the future of skiing, thus reaffirming its strong attachment to the values of sharing and respect.www.hublot.comlast_img read more
