first_imgTwiddle and Aqueous returned to the Town Ballroom last night, March 5th, for the second consecutive night of music at the renowned Buffalo, NY venue. As with the first night, the two bands traded sit-ins to provide some extra love for the fans in attendance.It all started during Aqueous’s set, when the band busted out a cover of David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance” for the first time in 67 shows. Drummer Rob Houk took lead vocals, allowing an empty seat for one Brook Jordan to sit in on drums. After “Let’s Dance,” Jordan left the stage, and Aqueous made their way through “Complex Pt. I” and “Origami” to close their supporting set. You can watch video of Aqueous’ full performance below, courtesy of Youtube user, TheKamherst.Setlist: Aqueous | Town Ballroom | Buffalo, NY | 3/5/2017Set 1: Underlyer > Marty, Eon Don > Let’s Dance¹ ² > Complex Pt. I, OrigamiNotes:¹ Rob on vocals² Brook Jordan [Twiddle] on drumsNext up, Twiddle took the stage to throw down for the second night of their sold-out run at Town Ballroom. The first set was kicked off by “Subconscious Prelude,” followed by an “Apples” sandwich with “Funky Town” placed squarely in between “Apples.” After this upbeat combination, Twiddle moved into “Gatsby The Great,” video of which can be seen below, courtesy of TheKamherst, and then used “Dusk ‘Til Dawn” and “The Catapillar” to close out the first set.“Gatsby The Great”Twiddle’s second set was a massive and sprawling four-song salute. After “Earth Mama” opened the set, the band used “Wasabi Eruption” as a springboard into “The Box,” video of which can be seen below, courtesy of The Kamherst.“The Box”However, it was really the end of the show during which things got special and they paid Aqueous back for Brook Jordan’s sit-in earlier in the evening. For “Syncopated Healing,” Twiddle brought out Mike Gantzer of opening act, Aqueous, to join them on guitar. After a quick break, Twiddle returned to the stage for the encore with Gantzer again to help out, this time on Radiohead’s “Karma Police.” You can check out videos of Mike Gantzer sitting in on “Syncopated Healing” and “Karma Police” below, courtesy of The Kamherst.“Syncopated Healing” with Mike Gantzer“Karma Police” with Mike GantzerSetlist: Twiddle | Town Ballroom | Buffalo, NY | 3/5/2017Set 1: Subconscious Prelude, Apples -> Funky Town -> Apples, Gatsby The Great, Dusk ‘Til Dawn, The CatapillarSet 2: Earth Mama, Wasabi Eruption -> The Box, Syncopated Healing [1]Encore: Karma Police [1][1] “Syncopated Healing” and “Karma Police” featured Mike Gantzer (Aqueous) on guitar.last_img read more

first_imgWriting was invented only once. In fact, writing systems, though structurally similar, were invented “several times in human history,” he said. One example: Mesoamerican systems, like Aztec and Mayan, evolved independent of the Old World.Clay tokens, used in early accounting, were the medium of the earliest writing. No, said Zender. Clay tokens, pictographs, and rebus (pictures used to communicate sounds) play a role in writing systems, but are not writing’s precursors. Pictures, for one, are not always efficient messengers of meaning, he said. His illustration: Signage on a modern restroom hand dryer — with its wavy heat lines — could mean, “Push button. Receive bacon.”Alphabets evolved slowly from earlier pictographic and rebus systems. Not true, he said. Writing developed in rapid periodic episodes of “borrowing and adaption.” Said Zender, “The scope and origins of script origins and script decay are highly variable and unpredictable.”Most writing systems evolved in response to a need for administrative systems. In fact, said Zender, writing systems may have originated more as a means “to write personal names.”Despite the myths, humans through the millennia evolved “strikingly similar ways of recording sound and meaning,” said Zender. How could this be?One possible answer still has to be explored by linguists and neuroscientists, he said. There may be innate features of the human brain that underlie a cognitive rationale for the similarity of writing systems.Another answer may be simply that the earliest written records were meant to be “administrative and utilitarian,” said Zender. That would account for writing’s free mix of numerals, words, and names signifying ownership.Names are an apparent universal leitmotif in the development of writing systems. Zender showed a picture of one ornate polychrome vase from eighth century Mesoamerica. Ornate symbols along the top have a simple meaning: “It is the drinking cup for chocolate of K’ahk’ Tiliw Chan Chahk.”A Vimose bone comb from Denmark, circa A.D. 150, is decorated by a scrawl that reads, “Harry’s comb.”Medieval runic name tags, salvaged from a Norwegian archaeological dig and designed to be tied to goods, are a metaphor for property rights. One reads, “Erik owns this.”“Language is uniquely human,” said Zender, wrapping up his talk, and part of that is “signaling group and individual identity.”Writing may have been invented to do the same thing. To say, in effect: “I am here. We are here.”Future talks in the Visible Language series will look at the development of Chinese writing (Oct. 6), cuneiform script (Oct. 13), Egyptian hieroglyphs (Nov. 18), and the early history of the alphabet (Dec. 2).The lectures begin at 5:30 p.m. Most are in the Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford St. For more information. “Visible Language,” a semester-long lecture series sponsored by the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard University, will probe the origins and development of writing. Experts will look at the earliest writing systems — from China, Egypt, and Europe to those of the Mediterranean area, Mesoamerica, and Mesopotamia.Going back that far yields an immediate surprise, said linguistic anthropologist Marc Zender, who opened the series Sept. 16 at the Geological Lecture Hall. Writing was “independently invented several times in human history,” he said, and yet it was invented “in strikingly similar ways.”In every system, specific signs are used to communicate sounds, words, and ideas, said Zender, a Harvard anthropology lecturer and Peabody research associate who specializes in deciphering Aztec and Mayan. All writing systems, he said, show a “diverse oneness.”The phrase comes from “Visible Speech: The Diverse Oneness of Writing Systems,” an influential 1989 book by American linguist John DeFrancis. It was one of many books outlined in Zender’s talk, which provided a sort of reading list for the series. Among them were “Writing Without Words” (1994), “Mother of Writing” (1990), “The First Writing” (2004), and “The Disappearance of Writing Systems” (2008).Regardless of its culturally diverse origins, writing everywhere, said Zender, “arrests and channels the otherwise ephemeral spoken word.”Though writing “arrests” something as mundane as speech, ancient peoples regarded it as a medium of the divine, he said. One of his slides showed Thoth, the ibis-headed Egyptian god who was credited with inventing writing. Another depicted Maya scribes, the “supernatural, angelic beings,” said Zender, whose writing was considered an act of divine creation.But today, writing is everywhere, part of every culture, and almost anyone can do it. Yet it remains, said Zender, “the single most important vehicle of cultural transmission between generations,” a way for one age to talk to another.“Writing,” he said, “allows our words to outlive us.”Zender reached back 6,000 years and more to humankind’s earliest writing systems. But he also took the time to dispel some contemporary myths:Some writing systems operate independent of sounds. Not true. All writing is related to language and its phonetic signs, said Zender, who quoted linguist Archibald A. Hill: “All writing represents speech.”last_img read more

first_imgPaul Farmer remembers the day in 1980 when Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Romero was gunned down while celebrating Mass.The assassination caught the attention of the young Duke University undergraduate and made him curious about Romero’s beliefs, which were so important to the prelate that he put his life at risk, and which were considered so dangerous by others that they killed him.So Farmer started reading about liberation theology, a Roman Catholic movement that challenged the institutional structures of society that perpetuated the destitution in Latin America. Farmer said Tuesday that liberation theology provided the moral underpinning for his work with the global poor, including that of the international nonprofit he co-founded in the 1980s, Partners In Health.Farmer, Harvard’s Kolokotrones University Professor of Global Health and Social Medicine, said during a discussion at the First Church in Cambridge that those early readings provided him with important background for his work in Haiti in the 1980s, when he witnessed abject poverty and suffering and had to decide how to respond to it. In the end, instead of pulling away or trying to rationalize it, he decided he would not just be a “spectator to poverty.”That decision ultimately led to the founding of Partners In Health, which has saved thousands of lives and improved health in some of the poorest parts of the world.Farmer described the impact liberation theology had on him during the session with David Carrasco, the Neil L. Rudenstine Professor of the Study of Latin America, and Divinity School student Lauren Taylor. The three discussed Farmer’s latest book, “In the Company of the Poor,” co-authored with the Rev. Gustavo Gutierrez, author of the 1971 book “A Theology of Liberation,” which gave the movement its name. The event was sponsored by Harvard Divinity School’s Science, Religion, and Culture Program.Farmer spoke of “structural violence” in society, of deprivation and death with poverty and inequality as its root cause. He said Partners In Health has sought to counteract that by trying to understand the poor’s point of view while designing programs. Instead of throwing up their hands at patients who fail to take medications and decrying them as lazy or ignorant, officials at Partners In Health instead ask patients why they don’t take their prescriptions and works to lower costs, increase access, and remove other roadblocks.“Instead of saying ‘failure to adhere,’ [we ask] them how we failed them, how we can remove the barriers to good health,” Farmer said.Farmer said that an important aspect of the organization’s work is that it has always been conducted in tandem with local partners, leaders, and participants. He quoted a response by Gutierrez, who is now a professor at the University of Notre Dame, when he was asked what his final words to a class would be.“He said that the first thing I’d teach them is that the first person is not ‘I am,’ it’s ‘You are,’” Farmer said, “and that’s the answer to the question about staying power. It’s ‘We are.’ That’s why we’re still there.”Being able to watch people’s health improve helps as well. Infant mortality in Haiti is way down from the 1980s. Farmer said he recently visited a hospital the organization founded on the Central Plateau and saw 20 nurses and doctors treating 11 people who’d come in at once after an auto accident. Years earlier, he said, such cases would have been a nightmare for the smaller clinics the organization ran. Seeing the smooth operation of the staff at the year-old hospital was “like dying and going to heaven,” Farmer said.Similarly, he said, health has rapidly improved in Rwanda, where Partners In Health also works. Infant mortality has plunged, while life expectancy has doubled over the last 15 years.“I’m proud of what we’ve done,” Farmer said.last_img read more

Dr. Wykeham McNeill, has been elected Chairman of the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) Executive Council, for the year 2014-2015.Jamaica’s election marks a historic first for the country which currently serves as first Vice-Chairman of the Executive Council (EC) for 2013, after previously serving as second Vice-Chair.Jamaica will assume its position as Chairman in October 2014, and will preside over several important meetings including the next UNWTO General Assembly.Jamaica was elected during the UNWTO’s 20th Session of the General Assembly which was held from August 24 to 29, 2013 in Victoria Falls, at the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe. Jamaica is one of three English speaking Caribbean countries that are members of the UNWTO, with the others being the Bahamas and Trinidad & Tobago. Jamaica will be the first English speaking Caribbean country to hold the position of Chairman.Minister McNeill and Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Tourism and Entertainment, Mrs. Jennifer Griffith, represented Jamaica at the meeting. The Minister said, “this is yet another proud moment for Jamaica, and represents a monumental achievement given the fact that we are a small island state.” He added, “this further concretizes our position as a leader in tourism on the international stage and speaks volumes of the far reaching impact Jamaica continues to have on the other nations of the world.”The island was also re-elected to serve as first Vice-Chairman of the EC for 2013-2014.

first_imgThose close to Marie Henein say the only thing the high-profile criminal lawyer defends more relentlessly than her clients is the justice system itself.Henein displayed that commitment to the fairness and transparency of the system this week, friends and colleagues said, as she secured a legal victory for Vice-Admiral Mark Norman.After representing Norman for more than two years in a breach of trust case, the charge was stayed Wednesday partially on the strength of information Henein and her team shared with prosecutors.Those who know the Toronto-based lawyer — who has also successfully defended clients such as former CBC host Jian Ghomeshi and former Ontario Attorney General Michael Bryant — said the Norman case allowed Henein to demonstrate some of the lesser-known skills that have shaped her successful career.Danielle Robitaille, who began working alongside Henein in 2007 and is now a partner in her law firm, said her mentor brings relentless focus and meticulous preparation to every case she takes on.Underpinning it all, she said, is an implacable desire to secure the best outcome for her clients while maintaining the integrity of the justice system.“Marie, really at her core, believes in our institutions,” Robitaille said. “She is so proud of our justice system … She is strongly of the view that we have a responsibility, as lawyers, to promote confidence in the administration of justice. And she takes that very, very seriously.”Henein, who graduated Toronto’s Osgoode Hall Law School in 1989 and went onto earn a Masters in Law from Columbia University two years later, cut her teeth in the firm of storied criminal lawyer Edward Greenspan.She’s been the principal of her own firm since 2002, and since that time has carved out an increasingly illustrious reputation.That reputation prompted Robitaille to seek her support and mentorship in 2007 when she was learning to practice criminal law.She said Henein was extremely generous with her time and expertise, though her “very direct” personality and sense of drive meant feedback was not always delivered gently.“We weren’t making cupcakes, we were protecting people’s constitutional rights and trying to save people from a loss of liberty,” she said. “There really wasn’t a lot of time to sugar-coat constructive criticism.”Robitaille said Henein’s style is characterized by rigorous attention to detail in every aspect of a case.She said her mentor conducts thorough investigations on behalf of her clients, never accepting evidence at face value but seeking independent confirmation for the smallest fact and making sure that she has multiple avenues for proving her points.Over the years, that approach has helped secure a number of victories.One of the most high-profile wins was the acquittal of Ghomeshi, who was cleared on sexual assault charges due largely to Henein’s withering cross-examination of his accusers.In handing down his decision, Justice William Horkins cited defence questions that exposed sometimes stark inconsistencies in witness accounts and memories, leaving him with reasonable doubt as to whether alleged assaults took place.Henein also represented former junior hockey coach David Frost, who was acquitted on sexual exploitation charges, and American rapper Ja Rule, who pleaded guilty to an assault charge over a fight at a Toronto nightclub.Robitaille said Henein also has a largely unsung talent for case resolution, citing instances like Norman’s in which her work ends a matter before it comes to trial.Another such case took place in 2009 and involved Bryant, who was charged with criminal negligence causing death and dangerous driving causing death. Those charges were withdrawn before the case went to trial.In his memoir, Bryant  — now the head of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association — said his lawyer seemed to “channel Hannibal Lecter” through her ability to “find a person’s deepest frailties and exploit them.”Henein’s tough reputation is belied by her generosity, Robitaille said, adding her mentor takes on quite a lot of pro bono work.She also co-founded the Ontario Inmate Appeal Duty Counsel Program, an initiative that helps people secure legal representation in the province’s top court.Michael Lacy, President of the Criminal Lawyers’ Association, said Henein has also helped back the organization before the Supreme Court of Canada and served as a mentor to several members.“I can tell you from a personal perspective that her reputation as one of Canada’s top lawyers is very well-deserved,” Lacy said.He too said her driving principle appears to be a commitment to the integrity of the justice system, a point Henein made herself in a news conference shortly after Norman left court.“No person in this country should ever walk into a courtroom and feel like they are fighting their elected government or any sort of political factors at all,” she said.“There are times you agree with what happens in a court, there are times you don’t, and that’s fine. But what you don’t do is you don’t put your finger and try to weigh in on the scales of justice.”Michelle McQuigge , The Canadian Presslast_img read more
