first_imgFilmUncategorizedCounter Programming: A Scary Indie Sci-Fi Flick and Christian Slater Committing Civil DisobedienceYour guide to the best indie films of the weekend—popcorn not includedBy Lincoln Flynn – June 19, 2014618ShareEmailFacebookTwitterPinterestReddItOpening this week: Jersey Boys. If you’re not sure about Clint Eastwood retelling the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, see these instead.CoherenceA group of Angelenos get together for a dinner party. A strange comet passes by Earth. Eerie things that might have something to do with quantum mechanics coincide and the party members start to question the nature of their reality. A nifty sci-fi chamber piece that features good ensemble acting and some deft cinematography and editing, James Ward Byrkit’s Coherence plays likes The Twilight Zone as directed by John Cassavetes. It’s also a puzzler in the vein of Memento or Primer with a climactic event straight out of a psychological horror film.When: opens Friday, June 20, various timesWhere: Los Feliz 3, 1822 N. Vermont Ave., Los FelizPump Up the VolumeChristian Slater playing a suburban teenage shock-jock seems silly in an Oliver-Stone-meets-Tiger-Beat way. But Pump up the Volume is a potent piece of social commentary from the early ’90s that addresses institutional failure and the disenfranchisement of youth. Writer and director Allan Moyle is a Baby Boomer who transferred his own adolescent experiences into a story about a Gen X teenager using media as a method of protest. So it’s also a movie about intergenerational responsibility, a subject that still resonates. The underrated film will be shown in an archival 35mm print with Moyle in attendance.When: Saturday, June 20, 11:59 pm (midnight)Where: Cinefamily, 611 N.

first_img whatsapp Wednesday 13 May 2015 8:42 pm Share BAILED out Dutch bank ABN Amro’s chairman apologised yesterday over a set of mis-judged pay rises offered to senior executives earlier this year.The lender had planned to float on the stock market, a move which would have recovered some of the €30bn (£21.7bn) used to rescue ABN and Fortis in the financial crisis.But it had to cancel the stock market flotation when it was revealed that several top bosses were in line for a €100,000 salary raise, a move which went down poorly with investors.The pay rise was being offered in reaction to EU rules clamping down on bonuses, in a bid to make sure bosses were not made worse off by the legal changes.Chairman Gerrit Zalm apologised in a letter accompanying the first quarter financial report. “We sincerely regret the increase in fixed salary and the impact it has had on ABN Amro, our clients and employees, and other stakeholders,” Zalm wrote.“Hence, we cancelled the increase. We understand that it will take time for the public to regain confidence in ABN Amro and will work hard to restore that confidence by doing our utmost to put our clients’ interests first every day.”The first quarter figures showed reported profits of €543m, up 74.6 per cent on the year, in part due to falling loan losses.

first_img The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) issued an order on Thursday settling charges against TeraExchange LLC, which is provisionally registered as a swap execution facility (SEF). The order finds that the exchange failed to enforce its prohibition on wash trading and pre-arranged trading in Bitcoin swaps when it arranged an offsetting trade “to test the pipes.” At the time, these were the only transactions on TeraExchange’s SEF. Yet, the CFTC says that after the trades, TeraExchange issued a press release and made statements at a meeting of the CFTC’s global markets advisory committee announcing the transactions and “creating the impression of actual trading interest in the Bitcoin swap.” CFTC has collected more than US$1 billion in sanctions via tipsters Montreal Exchange proposes rulebook reforms James Langton Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Related newscenter_img MX delays extended hours launch Keywords Derivatives The CFTC order notes that “[t]hese facts should be distinguished from a situation where a SEF or other designated contract market runs pre-operational test trades to confirm that its systems are technically capable of executing transactions and, to the extent that these simulated transactions become publicly known, makes it clear to the public that the trades do not represent actual liquidity in the subject market.” Under the settlement, TeraExchange is required to cease and desist from future violations of its obligations to enforce rules on trade practices. “Fictitious trading deserves a penalty,” says CFTC commissioner Sharon Bowen in a statement dissenting from the deal following the settlement. “TeraExchange Exchange facilitated wash trading and pre-arranged trading in violation of the Commodity Exchange Act. That is why we brought this case. I fundamentally disagree with the notion that they deserve no penalty.” Facebook LinkedIn Twitterlast_img read more

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Published: March 8, 2006 Screaming water, rising cakes and cooking without heat are some of the topics to be explored during the CU Wizards show “Chemistry in the Kitchen!” on Saturday, March 18, at 9:30 a.m. in the Cristol Chemistry building, room 140. University of Colorado at Boulder chemistry and biochemistry Professor David Nesbitt will present the free hour-long show that will explore the science lurking in the refrigerator and on the kitchen stove. Among other topics, Nesbitt will show why water makes such funny screaming sounds just before it boils, why cakes rise when you cook them and why bananas smell like bananas. He also will demonstrate how to “cook” a scrambled egg without any heat and how to make ice cream without a freezer. The principle that makes Old Faithful, the famous Yellowstone National Park geyser, erupt will be explained. CU Wizards is usually held the third or fourth Saturday of each month during the academic year and focuses on astronomy, chemistry and physics. Though intended primarily for students in grades five through nine, the shows are educational and entertaining to people of all ages. Anyone with a disability or special need should notify the CU-Boulder physics department office at (303) 492-6952 a few days prior to the show.

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Government will be placing increased focus on its Young Entrepreneurs Programme (YEP) in order to encourage more young people to own their own business.State Minister for Industry, Investment and Commerce, Hon. Michael Stern, said today (April 8) that not enough youngsters are taking advantage of the programme, which was launched last year.“We are now moving to make more of our young people aware of YEP,” the Minister stated as he addressed the University of Technology’s (UTech) annual students’ conference at the Jamaica Conference Centre downtown Kingston.YEP is targeted at high and tertiary school leavers, who are interested in starting their own business, providing them with training, and access to funding and post-loan support services. The programme is being managed by Development Bank of Jamaica (DBJ), which has made $200 million available for viable projects through micro finance institutions.Minister of State for Industry, Investment and Commerce, Hon. Michael Stern (centre), has a light moment with Head of the University of Technology’s (UTech) School of Business Administration, Joan Lawla (left) and President of Guardian Life, Eric Hosin, (right) at UTech’s 15th annual students’ conference held today (April 8) at the Jamaica Conference Centre, downtown Kingston.President of Guardian Life Limited, Mr. Eric Hosin, who was the guest speaker, also encouraged the youngsters to seek to become entrepreneurs. “This is certainly something that is lacking and there is no limit to the opportunities available,” he stated.Citing the qualities necessary to manage a successful business, he said that among the most important is having a positive attitude, noting that negative thoughts lead to destruction. “It leads to you just seeing doom and gloom when it really is a time to bloom,” he said. He also warned persons to avoid individuals who are negative.Mr. Hosin also encouraged the students not to be lazy, to work hard and enjoy what they are doing, to make sacrifices, invest wisely, and to prepare for retirement.The conference was held under the theme: ‘Managing Change, Sustaining Growth in a Challenging Global environment’.

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Family, friends, former colleagues, and well wishers bade farewell to late educator and administrator, Dr. the Hon. Joyce Robinson, during Friday’s (May 31) Official Funeral at the University of the West Indies (UWI) Chapel in St. Andrew.The prevailing grey skies and inclement weather paled into insignificance, as warm and glowing tributes flowed from the various speakers, filling the historic Chapel, as they paid tribute to the outstanding Jamaican icon. Finance and Planning Minister, Dr. the Hon. Peter Phillips , who represented Prime Minister the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller; and Opposition Leader, Andrew Holness, who read the First and Second Lessons, respectively, headed the wide cross section of persons who turned out to pay their respects.Dr. Robinson, who was described as the quintessential leader and a passionate advocate for libraries and literacy, passed away on May 12, at the age of 87.In his tribute, Chairman, Human Employment and Resources Training (HEART) Trust, Moses Peart, said Dr. Robinson was a humble Jamaican, who spent her life serving her country and people.“She was a very effective leader, who was always serving. She was a strategic thinker, who was always very organised in her duties, and she was a caring person, who exemplified motherly love,” he stated.Mr. Peart noted that Dr. Robinson was devoted the development and growth of all Jamaicans, as demonstrated through her involvement in the implementation of a number of skills training organisations.These, he said, include: the Stony Hill Academy for Commercial Skills; Portmore Academy for Construction Skills; Kenilworth Academy for data entry skills; Ebony Park Academy for agricultural skills; the HEART School of Cosmetology; and the Leap Centre for training of youth deemed at-risk and unattached.“Amazing, extraordinary, and phenomenal” were just some of the accolades used by Jamaica Library Service (JLS) Chairman, Paul Lalor, to describe Dr. Robinson.He noted that the name Joyce Robinson is inextricably linked to the history and development of the JLS.He informed that having previously served as a volunteer at the St. Elizabeth Parish Library, Dr. Robinson joined the organisation as a Senior Library Assistant in 1950, contributing significantly to the JLS’ development until she was seconded to the National Literacy Programme in 1973.“Through hard work and determination, she quickly rose through the ranks to, not only become the first local member of staff to qualify as a Librarian, but also to become the first female and the first Jamaican Director of the JLS,” he informed.Mr. Lalor said under Dr. Robinson’s leadership, the JLS expanded from a nucleus of five libraries to an inter-island network of main libraries in every parish capital. He said the expansion also saw book centres and branches being established in urban, sub-urban and rural areas; mobile library services being provided in remote rural areas; and libraries being opened in the majority of government schools.In a heart-warming eulogy, Dr. Robinson’s sister, Carolyn Allen, said she was “wholeheartedly proud” of her.“You have made us very proud, Joyce; but now we have to manage without you…We thank God for sharing (your) life with us and fond memories of (you) will always be cherished,” she stated.Also speaking in remembrance of his mother, Anthony Robinson, said in spite of the many accolades and praises showered on Dr. Robinson, to him, she was just “Mummy”.“Her love and care for her family and friends are her greatest legacy. Make no mistake, we her children, were her greatest pride and joy,” he said.Dr. Robinson was a former teacher and Principal of the Black River High School in St. Elizabeth; former Director of the Jamaica Library Service (JLS) and the Jamaican Movement for Adult Literacy (JAMAL), now the Jamaican Foundation for Lifelong Learning (JFLL); former General Manager of the defunct Jamaica Broadcasting Corporation (JBC), now Television Jamaica (TVJ); and former Director of the Human Employment and Resource Training (HEART).She was also active in a significant number of voluntary service-related organisations. These include: the National Council on Libraries; Archives and Documentation Services; Jamaica Library Association; Jamaica National Commission for UNESCO; Institute of Jamaica; Foundation for International Self-Help; Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) of Jamaica; and Soroptimist Club of Jamaica.CONTACT: ATHALIAH REYNOLDS-BAKER Related$185 Million for Renovation of Facilities to House Juveniles RelatedBroadcasting Commission Cautions Students on Use of New Media Hundreds Bid Farewell to the Late Dr. Joyce Robinson InformationJune 2, 2013center_img RelatedSenate Approves Bill on Charitable Organisations Advertisementslast_img read more

first_imgRelatedUpgraded Health Facility Opens in St. Thomas RelatedDental Auxiliaries Conference Concludes in Lucea Story HighlightsThe Ministry of Health is encouraging persons to do blood sugar and blood pressure checks on a regular basis.These checks are important in the fight against Hypertension, which is also called the silent killer. Hypertension is generally discovered when the blood pressure is checked and that it is a simple painless procedure that can be done at home. The Ministry of Health is encouraging persons to do blood sugar and blood pressure checks on a regular basis, avoid foods that are high in salt content, and maintain a healthy weight.Acting Director of Chronic Diseases and Injuries Prevention in the Ministry, Dr. Tamu Davidson Sadler, explained that these checks are important in the fight against Hypertension, which is also called the silent killer.In an interview with JIS News, Dr. Davidson-Sadler, said that hypertension is a major contributor to non-communicable diseases (NCDs). “It is the leading cause of death as a risk factor globally, and because it is asymptomatic, meaning there are no symptoms, many persons are unaware that they are hypertensive,” she noted.The Acting Director explained that hypertension is generally discovered when the blood pressure is checked and that it is a simple painless procedure that can be done at home.She added that almost half of the persons surveyed in the last Jamaica Health and Lifestyle Survey were unaware that they were hypertensive and that the same survey showed that 70 per cent of males were unaware of their condition.“It’s a serious problem in Jamaica, the level of awareness around a condition that you can easily have checked,” she noted.Dr. Davidson-Sadler said the Ministry of Health has adopted the Global ‘Know Your Blood Pressure’ campaign, which is expected to run for the next five years.  She said the thrust to get persons to know their numbers through being screened for various conditions, was an expansion of that campaign.“One in every four Jamaicans has hypertension and about 35 per cent of Jamaicans between the ages of 15 and 74 are pre-hypertensive. It is the single most important risk factor that leads to stroke, heart attack and early morbidity due to an NCD,” she said.Dr. Davidson-Sadler informed in October 2013, a National Strategic Plan and Strategy for the prevention of NCDs in Jamaica was passed and that the National guidelines for hypertension were recently revised and updated and will be rolled out across the island this year. This, she said, will help with the execution of the ‘Know Your Blood Pressure’ global campaign.The World Hypertension League leads the world in recognizing World Hypertension Day (WHD) on May 17 each year. The day provides opportunities to improve prevention and control of hypertension.
