Strike, protest in Tunisia town as social unrest mounts

first_imgKASSERINE, Tunisia- A general strike gripped the central Tunisian town of Kasserine on Wednesday amid rising discontent over the government’s failure to improve living conditions three years after the revolution.On Tuesday evening, dozens of protesters attacked a police post in the nearby village of Thala, witnesses told AFP.Shops and public offices remained closed in Kasserine, while hundreds protested in the streets, shouting slogans including “The people want the fall of the regime,” the rallying cry of the Arab Spring. Tunisia’s powerful UGTT trade union confederation called the strike to coincide with the anniversary of the first death in the town during the January 2011 uprising that toppled veteran strongman Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.Central Tunisia has long suffered from neglect and a lack of opportunity, which were driving factors behind the revolution that began in nearby Sidi Bouzid, when a young street vendor burnt himself alive in protest at his impoverished circumstances.“On this day, which marks the death of the first martyr of the revolution in Kasserine, we wanted to protest against underdevelopment and the poor economic situation,” trade unionist Sadok Mahmoudi told AFP.The political class must know that we remain committed to the goals of the revolution — dignity, freedom and work.”On Tuesday evening, protesters threw rocks at a police post in Thala, north of Kasserine, wounding two policemen, Tunisian media reported.The police fired tear gas to disperse the protesters, witnesses said.  Strikes and demonstrations have been on the rise in Tunisia since the autumn, fuelled by the persistent economic malaise and a political crisis triggered by the murder of an opposition politician last July.last_img read more

California to fine developer for building pricey beach hotel

LOS ANGELES — A developer could be hit Wednesday with a record $25 million in fines and fees for constructing a high-priced hotel on the Southern California coast after obtaining a permit for a property with moderately priced rooms, in what state officials called a “bait-and-switch” building scheme.Sunshine Enterprises violated a state law that enshrines public access to beach areas, according to the California Coastal Commission. The agency is expected to approve a $15.5 million penalty — the largest in its 40-year history, said commission supervisor Andrew Willis. Commissioners could recommend an additional $9.5 million in mitigation fees to make up the loss in low-cost lodging, he said.“We hope this is a painful price to pay. We want this to be a deterrent,” Willis said Tuesday.Sunshine Enterprises was permitted to rebuild and expand two motels — the Pacific Sands and a Travelodge — that were among a dwindling number of affordable accommodations along a tourist-heavy strip of pricey hotels near the Santa Monica Pier. The new hotel would not offer a bar, restaurant, spa or other “luxury” amenities and rooms would cost about $165 a night, according to the permit application.But the company let the permit expire and instead built the boutique Shore Hotel, where rooms with a “bed and breakfast package” start at around $300 and ones featuring Pacific Ocean views can run up to $800, documents show.Under the landmark Coastal Act, the commission protects resources including marine habitat, fisheries, shoreline public access and less-expensive visitor accommodations.Efforts to make sure lower-income people can visit beaches and also afford to spend the night are central to the commission’s mission, said Sean Hecht, a law professor at the University of California, Los Angeles.“We don’t want beaches to become only a place for the wealthy. We have many residents who don’t live within driving distance to the coast and they should be able to enjoy it and spend some time,” said Hecht.Sunshine Enterprises will pay any ordered penalties and work with the commission to reach “full resolution of this matter,” the company said in a contrite statement Tuesday.“Shore Hotel recognizes the hotel was opened without the Coastal Commission’s permit and regrets this violation took place and the length of time it has taken to rectify this violation of the Coastal Act,” the statement said.Sunshine Enterprises lost in court after suing when commissioners denied an after-the-fact permit for the new Shore Hotel. An appeals court this year upheld the commission’s denial.“The court upheld that it was a bait-and-switch,” Lisa Haage, the commission’s chief of enforcement, said of Sunshine Enterprises’ actions.The $9.5 million in additional fees are part of a possible enforcement action that would require the Shore Hotel to cease operations within 180 days unless it obtains new permits while meeting a number of additional requirements.Money from the fine and mitigation fees will be held in a “violation mediation account” that helps fund projects that offer “some kind of replacement for people who would’ve stayed at the motels that were demolished,” Haage said. For instance, she said, the funds could be used to rehabilitate old motels or hostels and expand campgrounds.By using its powers to issue penalties the commission is living up to its broad mandate given by legislators, Hecht said.“If you give an agency authority, but there’s no enforcement, you don’t get the impact,” he said. “This kind of fine sends a message.”___Follow Weber at https://twitter.com/WeberCMChristopher Weber, The Associated Press read more

One in four thyroid cancer cases registered near Chernobyl site likely caused

About 20,000 thyroid cancer cases were registered from 1991 to 2015 among people who were under 18 in 1986 and lived in the affected areas of the former Soviet Union, according to the latest study by the UN Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR), which was released ahead of International Chernobyl Disaster Remembrance Day.The Committee now estimates that one in four of those cases is attributable to radiation exposure.“Thyroid cancer is a major problem after the Chernobyl accident and needs further investigation to better understand the long-term consequences,” said UNSCEAR Chair Hans Vanmarcke.The explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant on 26 April 1986 spread a radioactive cloud over large parts of what was then the Soviet Union, now the territories of Belarus, Ukraine and Russia. Nearly 8.4 million people in these areas were exposed to the radiation.Around 116,000 people were evacuated from the area at the time, and a further 230,000 in recent years.On 8 December 2016 the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution designating 26 April as International Chernobyl Disaster Remembrance Day.Mr. Vanmarcke digs deeper into the findings of the latest report in a full interview with UN News here: read more

Nigeria Top UN officials say more support needed to ease humanitarian crisis

UN Development Programme (UNDP) Administrator Achim Steiner and UN Emergency Relief Coordinator Mark Lowcock made this call as they wrapped up a two-day official visit to Nigeria to rally support for the Government-led efforts on the ground, especially in the conflict-torn northeastern Nigerian states of Borno, Adamawa and Yobe.“We are committed to Nigeria and to the people of Nigeria,” said Mr. Lowcock, who heads up the UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).Humanitarian aid can only be a temporary solution, he said and was pleased to visit the region alongside the UNDP Administrator to help join up humanitarian and development efforts “to save lives, help stabilize the situation, rebuild lives and communities for the future.”“We must do everything we can to prevent this crisis from continuing for years,” Mr. Lowcock told reporters in Maiduguri, at the end of the visit, which also included meetings with Minister of Finance Zeinab Ahmad, government ministers and high-level officials. They visited projects in Bama town and Ngwom community in Borno, the state most affected by the 10-year conflict, where humanitarian and development workers are providing life-saving assistance and implementing development programmes. The two officials heard first-hand testimonies from people affected by the Lake Chad Basin crisis who are trying to rebuild their lives.“We have a unique opportunity to make a real difference to communities across the north-east of Nigeria,” said Mr. Steiner. “Helping people affected by the crisis requires us to work together – humanitarian and development organizations alike – to tackle immediate humanitarian needs and the root causes of the crisis.”The Government of Nigeria has launched recovery initiatives and efforts in north-east Nigeria aimed at rapid stabilization. Early recovery and livelihood activities implemented by UN agencies and international and local NGOs seek to address the underlying causes of the conflict, lay the foundations for sustainable development and prevent aid dependency.The humanitarian crisis in Nigeria’s north-east has spilled over into the Lake Chad region. It remains one of the most severe in the world today with 7.7 million people in need of humanitarian assistance in the worst-affected states of Borno, Adamawa and Yobe alone.According to OCHA, food security and the nutrition situation remains extremely fragile across the north-east, particularly given the high levels of aid dependency, compounded by the lack of access to land or other livelihood opportunities. Up to three million people are estimated to suffer from critical food insecurity. Almost a million children aged from six months to five years are acutely malnourished, with 440,000 facing Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM).The visit follows an international donor conference held in Berlin in early September during which some $2.5 billion was pledged for humanitarian, stabilization and recovery projects in the Lake Chad region. read more

Ohio State womens volleyball looking to rebound against Illinois

In tug-of-war type of game in which momentum and emotions flooded the floor, the No. 15 Ohio State women’s volleyball team defeated Northwestern, 3-1, on Wednesday night at St. John Arena. The Buckeyes now own a 19-8 overall record and are 10-5 in the Big Ten. Since their loss against then-No. 10 Minnesota on Sunday, coach Geoff Carlston said he has been focusing mainly on how his team would respond after a disappointing loss. Carlston was particularly happy in the way his team fought back after losing the second set against the Wildcats. “I think we played some really good volleyball at times tonight, and you know … volleyball is volleyball that way,” Carlston said. “I really liked how we played in game three in particular, able to grind it out, win that one and respond after game two.” Just like they did against the Gophers, the Buckeyes got off to a quick start. In set one, the Buckeyes looked like they may have been able to put the game on cruise control with a commanding 25-17 win in the first set. Northwestern, though, seemed to have other plans in set two and orchestrated a comeback where OSU saw their 16-9 lead turn into a 27-25 loss. For senior outside hitter Mari Hole, the third game was an important match that tested them both mentally and physically. “Game three was just that, to try to come back from what happened in game two, and we did a good job of just staying focused, staying with the game,” Hole said. “Like they had the momentum coming into game three, so we knew they were going to be coming strong out of the locker room, and we just had to match that energy.” Hole was proud of the way her team handled adversity, especially in a game where momentum didn’t seem to be on their side. “I think we did a good job of just continuing, working on our stuff, and in game four we got the momentum back and we just kept going,” Hole said. And at the end of the day, all that mattered to Carlston was that his team was the last one standing. “I’m happy. It’s good to get out of here with a win,” Carlston said. “Get some rest and start getting ready for Illinois.” As the season starts to wind down, Carlston acknowledged that this is the part of the year where they need to be sharp, stay fresh for upcoming games and for his younger players to adapt. “I think everyone is tired,” Carlston said. “The Big Ten is grueling and so every team in our conference … this is where the freshmen, they’re already done with their state tournaments typically by now, and so they’re (younger players) in uncharted ground right now. We got five matches left, and they have been training hard for three months. We need to be fresh, as fresh as you can possibly be for Saturday’s match.” Sophomore middle blocker Anna Faul said that it’s important to take care of their bodies in a strenuous season of the Big Ten. “It’s definitely different than being completely fresh, but we just try to focus on taking care of our bodies and getting enough sleep so that it doesn’t affect us too much,” Faul said. With the game against Northwestern in the books, Carlston is already expecting a tough fight from rival Illinois on Saturday. “They’re another really good team that’s been ranked,” Carlston said. “Everyone is jockeying for their position for the NCAA Tournament, so I expect them to play well.” Faul said every Big Ten game is important, but playing against Illinois will be an exciting game to her and to her team. “Illinois will be an exciting team to play against,” Faul said. “It was an exciting match at their place, and I think we can get a good crowd at our home too.” In order to defeat the Fighting Illini, Carlston pointed out a couple of key things that his team will need to do against a tough opponent. “So we’re going to have to be healthy, be fresh and come out ready to fight from the get go,” Carlston said. “You just got to be ready to play.” Faul said they just need to make sure that they don’t forget their basics, and continue to play their style. “I think just staying focused the next two days, keep up our basics, keep up our basic digging, passing and hitting everything in the same groove we have been doing all season,” Faul said. The Buckeyes play Illinois at 7 p.m. Saturday at St. John Arena. read more

Gwyneth Paltrows lifestylebrand Goop offering largest ever UK dress size for inclusive collection

It’s latest fashion venture – described as a “clean-lined, sophisticated capsule” – will add to the UK’s growing plus-size clothing market, which is currently valued at £6.5 billion.Earlier this year, Marks and Spencer launched a Curve range offering 100 pieces ranging in size from a UK 18 to 32, whilst last year Ashley Graham became the first plus-sized woman to feature on Forbes’ highest-paid models list.Goop’s new collection features five pieces including a dress, jumpsuit, peacoat, and tuxedo jacket with matching cropped trousers, a look that Ms Paltrow regularly wears on the red carpet. The pieces range from £187 to £327.The website has sold items of clothing from various brands since 2012, including Joseph and Stella McCartney.Speaking about the collaboration with Goop, the founder of Universal Standard, former fashion journalist Alex Waldman, told The Business of Fashion:  “This is really about making [size inclusivity] the new normal through a variety of channels.“The thing that should determine [your clothing] choices should be your taste and your budget. We don’t need any more barriers than that.” In June 2017, Ms Paltrow was forced to hire a lawyer to vet all of Goop’s claims following a complaint from Nasa after the site promoted “wellness stickers” that claimed to use Nasa technology.The website, which began as a newsletter produced by Ms Paltrow for her friends, has grown into a $250 million business. Goop has faced heavy criticism for the treatments it promotes, which include bee sting therapy Paltrow The largest ever female dress size offered in the UK has been created by Gwyneth Paltrow’s controversial “lifestyle-brand” Goop.The American actress and business woman has launched a “size-inclusive” clothing collection which includes a UK size 44.The largest size currently available in the UK is a 36 and one of Britain’s largest women is understood to have worn a size 40 when she was at her biggest.The collection, which has been done in collaboration with Universal Standard, a brand which aims to bridge the gap between straight and plus size clothing, marks the first time that a size larger than a UK 16 has been made available on the Goop site.Established in 2008, Goop is an online brand that has faced heavy criticism on numerous occasions for the treatments it promotes, including bee sting therapy, a salt shampoo to detoxify your scalp, and “vagina steaming”.

Hitachi introduces new solution for heavy equipment paint waste

first_imgHitachi Construction Machinery (Europe) has implemented what it believes to be a unique process to reduce chemical waste from the painting process at its factory in Amsterdam. Developed in cooperation with Advantage Chemicals, the process will save an estimated €60,000 per year on labour and energy costs, as well as disposal costs for waste water and sludge.Before the new system was introduced in December 2011, the painting process produced approximately 260 t of waste per year. It used a classic sinking system, in which the paint would sink or form a sediment at the bottom of the pool of water beneath the paint facility. Twice a year, the pool had to be cleaned, and the water and paint had to be removed, which was costly in terms of labour, energy, water and waste removal.The new system has reduced the amount of waste by 88% per year. HCME Production Engineering Manager Robin Huijsman, who is also Compliance Officer for Environmental Regulation, explains: “Cleaning the pool beneath the paint facility twice a year was a difficult and dirty job. With the new system, we are able to remove the overspray paint from the water and reuse the water. Thanks to the new system, the facility is cleaner and the filtering system that removes paint particles from the air functions better.”The new process combines real-time CoAg (coagulation) systems with waste water treatment systems. Instead of sinking or forming as sediment, the paint is suspended in the water and pumped to a waste treatment tank. “For this tank, we asked Advantage Chemicals to develop a chemical that is able to remove the paint by making it float,” added Huijsman. “The floating paint sludge is then skimmed off the top of the tank and is estimated at 30 t per year. We are delighted with the results of the new process. The reduction in chemical waste is one of our key environmental objectives and has improved the overall carbon footprint of the HCME factory in Amsterdam. In addition to cost benefits, there are health benefits too, with less solvents being released into the factory air and less dust.”last_img read more

Ashampoo server hacked customer names and email addresses stolen

first_imgIt was only a few weeks ago that we reported on Epsilon’s database being hacked and exposing customer data to spammers. That was a serious data breach purely because of the number of big name companies Epsilon stored customer data for. Today, on a smaller scale, but no less serious, Ashampoo has reported a similar server breach with customer data being stolen.Chances are you have come across or used at least one of Ashampoo’s products, with their most popular being Burning Studio and WinOptimizer. An Internet company that counts over 13 million customers on its books, it specializes in offering a range of downloadable software covering disc burning, multimedia, system utilities, office productivity suites, CAD, and ironically security software too.Rolf Hilchner, CEO of Ashampoo, has posted on the company’s website explaining exactly what has happened. Apparently hackers managed to break into one of Ashampoo’s servers that held customer data. There was a hole in their security and by using it Ashampoo customer names and e-mail addresses have been taken, but no payment and billing information was accessed.Ashampoo believe the addresses taken are now being sent malicious e-mails with a PDF attachment. If you go ahead and open that PDF file some code is run attempting to gain access to your system through known security holes. As the hackers collected these e-mail addresses from an Ashampoo server, it makes sense that they will try and mask the e-mails as an order confirmation or marketing of some sort.The best advice we can give is to ensure your system is up-to-date with security patches and to treat any e-mail associated with Ashampoo with caution. If you haven’t placed any orders recently, then you shouldn’t be receiving any e-mails of this sort from them.Read more at Ashampoolast_img read more

Lonnie Dupre Makes Fourth Winter Solo Attempt on Denali

first_imgOn Thursday, climber and Arctic veteran Lonnie Dupre  left Talkeetna for his fourth attempt to be the first person to summit Denali in January.Download AudioClimbing Denali is hard.  Even in peak season, temperatures dip below zero, and frostbite is a real concern.  In fact, this summer saw one of the lowest summit rates in decades, owing largely to weather.  Not many people attempt North America’s highest peak in winter.  Lonnie Dupre is one of the few who has.  He is beginning his fourth attempt to summit the mountain in January.  His previous attempts were all thwarted by the weather.  Dupre says he’s surprised at how mild the Alaskan winter has been so far.Lonnie Dupre during his 2012 attempt on Denali. (Courtesy Lonnie Dupre)“I’m surprised on how little snow and how warm it’s been in Alaska, overall.  That opens up a whole new bit of news, maybe, on climate change and what’s been going on with the weather these days.”Lonnie Dupre takes climate change seriously.  Many of his expeditions have been to raise awareness for the changing environment.  Despite the warmer-than-normal temperatures in the lowlands of Alaska, however, Dupre says it will still be very cold on Denali, with temperatures potentially dipping to fifty-below-zero.  Under those conditions, Lonnie Dupre says the body requires a lot of calories just to keep going.“It’s like throwing a log on the fire, right?  You’ve got to keep the firewood coming…”Lonnie Dupre estimates he’ll be taking in about 4,500 calories per day to keep his internal furnace running.  He says that hydration is even more important, and that he plans to drink four or five liters of melted snow-water each day.Daylight is also a major factor affecting winter climbs.  Lonnie Dupre will only have a handful of hours each day to try to make progress.“A big challenge, aside from the cold, is you only have a limited time to travel, because it’s dark.  I’m leaving at the darkest time of the year, so it only leaves you maybe five hours of useable light in mid-December.”Crevasses present a challenge to Denali climbers regardless of the season.  Without team members, Lonnie Dupre will be on his own should he find himself in an area where crevasses have opened.“A preventative measure to not drop into one of those bad-boys is to take a big, long pair of skis, and I’m taking…about a thirteen foot long spruce pole with me.”Like much of his gear, Lonnie’s eight-foot long skis are custom.  In fact, he made them himself.  This year, he is also bringing along a tent, sleeping bag, and down suit that should help him stay warm.  Overall, Dupre feels good about this year’s attempt.“You always get those butterflies in your stomach right before you go, but I’m excited to get moving.  I’m feeling really good about this year; I’ve trained hard.  I’ve got all the equipment I could have wished for for this trip.”As with his previous attempts, Lonnie Dupre’s primary goal is to get back safely, though reaching the summit of Denali would be a definite plus.last_img read more

UN to send war crimes investigators to Yemen

first_imgPeople inspect damage at a house after it was destroyed by an air strike in Yemen`s capital Sanaa, on 25 February 2016. Photo: ReutersThe UN Human Rights Council agreed Friday to send war crimes investigators to Yemen, overcoming resistance from Saudi Arabia, which had fought to head off an independent international probe.In a resolution adopted by consensus, the council mandated UN rights chief Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein to send a group of “eminent experts” to Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition has been bombing Huthi rebels since March 2015.The experts will conduct “a comprehensive examination of all alleged violations and abuses of international human rights” committed in the conflict and seek “to identify those responsible,” it said.Launching the probe marks a victory for a group of European states and Canada, which pushed hard for an international inquiry fully independent of a Yemeni national investigation that is backed by the Saudis.The Saudi-led coalition has been accused of bombing schools, markets, hospitals and other civilian targets in support of Yemeni president Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi.The Iran-backed Huthi rebels have also been accused of widespread abuses, which the UN team will also probe.Saudi Arabia had for the past two years succeeded in blocking the rights chief’s call for an international inquiry.In a letter leaked to several media outlets this week, the kingdom threated economic and diplomatic retaliation against rights council members which voted for the EU/Canadian proposal.The Saudi envoy to the council, Abdulaziz Alwasil, ended up endorsing Friday’s resolution, which was slightly softer than previous EU proposals.An earlier Dutch/Canadian draft asked for a Commission of Inquiry, the UN’s highest level investigation, but that call was removed from the adopted version.In a statement, the Saudi Press Agency hailed the move as a victory for Riyadh’s diplomatic efforts to have the Dutch proposal withdrawn and for Europe to adopt “the Arab proposal which supports Yemen’s national investigative committee”.Countries with significant and lucrative ties to Saudi Arabia, including the United States, Britain and France, were reported to have sought a compromise to break the deadlock.’Turning point’US envoy Theodore Allegra said he was pleased the 47-member rights council was “speaking with one voice on Yemen” and Britain’s ambassador Julian Braithwaite called the resolution “a significant achievement”.Yemeni envoy Mohamed Saeed Majawar said his government would “engage positively” with the experts.Human Rights Watch had argued forcefully for a Commission of Inquiry but said Friday’s result still amounted to a success.”After more than two years of impunity for horrendous crimes in Yemen, today could mark a turning point,” HRW’s Geneva director John Fisher said in a statement.The new probe “will bring an unprecedented level of scrutiny to the conduct of all parties to the Yemen war”, he said.Amnesty International called the resolution “a momentous breakthrough that will pave the way for justice for countless victims of human rights abuses and grave violations of international law, including war crimes.”The situation in Yemen is one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises.More than 8,500 people have been killed and nearly 49,000 wounded in the conflict, World Health Organization (WHO) figures show.At least 17 million people there are facing dire food shortages.Another 2,100 people have died in a cholera epidemic which erupted in in April. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) warned Friday there could be as many as 900,000 cases by year’s end.last_img

Life Beneath Enceladus Ice

first_imgQ: What did we know about Enceladus before Cassini?A: We knew nothing. We didn’t know anything about the vents. We didn’t know anything about the global ocean. We knew it was a small, icy moon in the Saturn system. But the Saturn system is full of small, icy moons.Q: What would it be like flying along with Cassini over Enceladus?A: The action happens pretty fast because you’re traveling at 7 or 8 kilometers per second. And [Enceladus] is pretty small — it’s like the size of Arizona.You’re getting pummeled by these little ice grains. As you’re flying over, you’ll see these geological features, these scars — little channels, basically — what we call the “tiger stripes.” Within those tiger stripes are the vents, straight from the global ocean. And above the surface of the ocean, a splash comes up — you can imagine a splash from a wave — that will instantly freeze. That’s what creates these grains. These have information about the salt content of the ocean and some of the organics that are present there.Q: How close did Cassini get?A: We went really close. It was about 50 kilometers — the closest flyby over the tiger stripes. We could look at the chemical balance and determine that the [hydrogen] we saw was sufficient to provide food for microbes. The obvious message is let’s go back and try to find life.Q: At this point, would you be surprised if we didn’t find life on Enceladus?A: I would be a bit surprised, yes. But I would be happy to find the answer one way or the other because I think both — whether you find it or not — will lead to a better understanding of how life arose on Earth and what it really means.last_img read more

Cohen is one of a young generation of countertenors who are popularizing a once-obscure vocal register that lies above normal tenor range and requires them to sing in falsetto or “head voice.” (Cory Weaver/San Francisco Opera via AP) A high-voiced rising star at 25 SAN FRANCISCO — Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen’s improbable career has brought him rapidly to the brink of operatic stardom at age 25. So it’s not surprising that the Brooklyn-born countertenor would fall prey to feeling a “kind of impostor syndrome” when he walked on stage.“Up until this time I’ve always had this feeling of, ‘What, me? Really?’” Cohen said in an interview at the War Memorial Opera House, where he was finishing a June run of performances as Medoro in Handel’s “Orlando.”But something changed on opening night. “I wasn’t nervous at all,” Cohen said. “For the first time I’m feeling I really belong here and I can hold my own.”Indeed, he did more than that. His second-act aria, “Verdi allori,” regularly drew some of the evening’s biggest applause, and Joshua Kosman in the San Francisco Chronicle singled him out for his “strong and gleaming” tone and “endlessly eloquent” phrasing.Cohen is one of a young generation of countertenors who are popularizing a once-obscure vocal register that lies above normal tenor range and requires them to sing in falsetto or “head voice.” The repertoire for these singers was once limited mainly to baroque composers like Monteverdi and Handel, who wrote roles for male castrati. But many contemporary composers, like Philip Glass and Thomas Ades, are making use of countertenors as well.Cohen’s career path has been more unusual even than his voice type. Winning a spot in the prestigious Brooklyn Youth Chorus at age 11, he watched the other boys “as their voices dropped and they would leave the ensemble.“But you know what? I didn’t want to,” said Cohen, whose cherubic features seem to go along with his angelic sound. Somehow he managed to keep singing the high notes and persuaded the chorus director to let him stay.“Presumably I have some natural predisposition toward being a countertenor,” he said. “But I think more than anything that starting every single day when my voice dropped, every single day since then I’ve sung in my falsetto. I had no idea what I was doing . I was truly just finagling to sing the high notes.”Though he took voice lessons throughout high school it wasn’t until he was a freshman at Princeton University and saw his first opera — Puccini’s “La Boheme” at the Metropolitan Opera — that he felt the excitement of that art form.“These people pouring their souls out directly to you, it just blew me away and changed my life,” he said.Graduating in 2015 with a degree in government (and certificates in vocal performance and Judaic studies), Cohen applied to numerous master’s programs in voice and postgraduate fellowships, and then, as he puts it, “The hammer came down.”“I got to the finals for almost everything,” he recalled, “and then in a span of a week I got rejected from everything.”But Cohen was determined to pursue a career in opera. He supported himself as an SAT tutor while taking voice lessons on his own. Breaks started coming when San Francisco’s Merola Opera Program accepted him for its 2016 summer apprenticeship.“I remember when he auditioned for me,” said Sheri Greenawald, who runs the San Francisco Opera Center training programs. “He was 21, and I thought, ‘You look like you’re 12.”Greenawald said the judges listened live to 550 applicants and Cohen was one of just 23 accepted. “For me it was a no-brainer,” she said, “He’s a nice tall kid who can make a sound. I heard a special voice in a special package.”After Merola, he earned a two-year stint as one of the company’s Adler Fellows, and also was invited to join the Houston Grand Opera Studio during the 2017-18 season.What really put him on what he calls the “opera world’s radar” was his triumph in the Metropolitan Opera’s National Council Auditions in 2017. He was one of six winners after four rounds of competition, and in the finals his performances of a Handel aria and a piece from Jonathan Dove’s “Flight” earned him a rave review in The New York Times.Though he had originally been hired as understudy for the role of Medoro, he was promoted this spring to the full run when San Francisco dismissed David Daniels, who has been charged with sexual assault.Now Cohen’s career is on the fast track. His first solo album has just been released, a compilation of Baroque arias with the American Bach Soloists. Soon he’s off to Prague as one of 40 singers invited to take part in Placido Domingo’s Operalia competition. In the fall he’s singing the role of David in Houston’s fully staged production of Handel’s oratorio “Saul.” And he has engagements well into the future — including a Met debut in the 2021-22 season.Cohen said his voice is still growing in power and depth and he expects to reach his full potential at about 30 — an age when lower male voices are often still developing. But a countertenor, perhaps the most fragile of voice types, tends to have a short shelf life: “After 40, the voice isn’t the same as it was,” he said.“I’m not mad that we peak a little earlier,” said Cohen, who still has a passion for government and public policy. “My joke with my girlfriend Abby is that when I retire at 50 I’m going to run for City Council in New York.”Mike Silverman, The Associated Presslast_img read more

Ghana in the final of the 2017 U-17 AFCON which exacerbated already existing tensions between the U is back in the news which was obtained under Freedom of Information Act requests Heres what youll get from this post: Lets get to it 1) This Is Why You Dont Feel Motivated Youre probably thinking too much about the rewards involved "I want the promotion" or "I want the A on the exam" You might be enthusiastic about the "carrot" or afraid of the "stick" but youre just not excited about doing the task itself Rewards like money are tricky They are definitely powerful especially in the short term Heres Dan: Whats really clear is that "if-then" rewards are really good for simple behavior and short term behavior definitely So if you want people to do something really straightforward like stuffing envelopes or processing papers and you want good performance during the short term then rewards work pretty well But looking exclusively at rewards doesnt work over longer time horizons or for complex tasks We inevitably take the pay raise for granted and if were still not excited about the task boom were less motivated again Heres Dan: "If-then" rewards just dont work very well for complex creative tasks with a long time horizon Its not like we dont like rewards We love rewards They get our attention But they narrow our field of vision We all want money (Good luck getting people to show up at work if you stop paying them) Rewards are essential but theyre not everything We all know well-paid lazy people And we all know people who enthusiastically engage in hobbies (which can look suspiciously like "work" to outsiders) for free (For more on how to stop being lazy and get stuff done click here) So rewards just motivate us to get rewards They dont make us care about the task at hand Which raises the obvious next question: How can you make yourself care 2) Here Are The 3 Things That Motivate You Dans found three things in the research that go a long way toward getting us motivated (assuming were already paid a fair amount) Remember "AMP": Lets break them down Autonomy Autonomy means we dont like being told what to do Once we feel were being pushed around we check out This is why kids might like puzzles but hate homework Theyre both problem-solving but only one has people nagging you about it Similarly nobody has ever said "I love a micromanaging boss" A lack of autonomy kills workplace engagement Heres Dan: Autonomy is "Am I directing my own life rather than being directed" Autonomy is simply self direction Giving people some sovereignty over what they do when they do it how they do it where they do it who they do it with To me its the secret in the workplace of engagement Mastery Why practice the guitar Are you getting paid for it Why try to improve your tennis serve Are you getting paid for it We just naturally like getting better at things This is why video games have rankings levels and points They say "Youre improving" and that feels good Heres Dan: Mastery is "Am I getting better at something that matters Am I making progress in something meaningful" But the workplace can be just awful at this Candy Crush and Call of Duty immediately tell you if youre getting better Yet at work you get an annual review See why one is addictively fun and the other can make every Sunday night so sad Purpose Kids are expensive time consuming and often difficult to deal with I suggest you sell yours to the highest bidder immediately Are you religious Patriotic Loyal to friends and family Sounds like a lot of obligations Get rid of all that baggage right now Sound crazy Of course it does These things provide purpose to our lives and purpose is immensely valuable to all of us Heres Dan: Purpose is "Am I doing something in service of a cause larger than myself or at the very least am I making a contribution in my own world" In the time since his book Drive came out Dan has a more refined view of purpose There are 2 types: Heres Dan: Since the book has come out I have a more refined view of this too Capital "P" Purpose is "Im working for a non-profit and we are devoted to protecting endangered species" or "I am working as a surgeon and I am saving peoples lives Im doing something to serve a cause larger than myself" But theres another kind of purpose that I didnt really explore enough which is what you can think of as purpose with a small p: "Does my piece matter If I didnt show up today at work would anybody care and would things be worse Would I be missed because what Im doing actually makes a contribution" I overlooked that in the book Again many workplaces can be a mess here too Whether its saving lives or just making a material contribution at work we dont often see the results we create Wharton professor Adam Grant did an amazing study where he created a huge spike in motivation at a university call center without spending a nickel His secret He showed the employees letters written by grateful students who had received scholarships due to their efforts They heard the difference their work made in young peoples lives And their motivation soared even higher when the students were brought in and said thanks in person Via Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success: When callers interacted with one scholarship recipient in person they were even more energized The average caller doubled in calls per hour and minutes on the phone per week By working harder the callers reached more alumni resulting in 144 percent more alumni donating each week Even more strikingly revenue quintupled: callers averaged $412 before meeting the scholarship recipient and more than $2000 afterward (For more on how you can motivate others click here) So maybe youre a total motivational rockstar and you make sure to find a situation where you have autonomy mastery and a deep sense of purpose Even if you have the three tentpoles what keeps you going day to day What gets you through the rough patches 3) The Most Motivating Thing Of All Teresa Amabiles research at Harvard found that the most motivating thing is progress in meaningful work Via The Progress Principle: Using Small Wins to Ignite Joy Engagement and Creativity at Work: This pattern is what we call the progress principle: of all the positive events that influence inner work life the single most powerful is progress in meaningful work; of all the negative events the single most powerful is the opposite of progresssetbacks in the work Whats fascinating is that this is so powerful that the mere illusion of progress is enough to get our engines revving Seriously In one study researchers gave people "Buy 10 coffees and get 1 free" cards And they gave a different group "Buy 12 coffees and get 1 free" cards but with 2 purchases already marked So effectively both groups were starting from the same point But thats not how the recipients saw it The "buy 12″ group bought coffees a lot faster because they felt they had made more progress toward the goal Merely thinking youve made progress can get you motivated (For more on how happiness leads to success click here) But sometimes it feels like youre just treading water You may have goals but its hard to see progress What do you do then 4) Forget Big Goals Focus On Small Wins Goals are great but big ones are abstract far away and sometimes hard to relate to And it can take months or years to achieve something big The secret is small wins Those little achievements you can see day to day Anything that went well or worked out Dont take that good presentation or minor achievement for granted Thats progress and paying attention to those can keep you trucking when youre feeling less than motivated Heres Dan: Over the last several years of writing about this stuff I have kind of moved away from the whole moonshot big hairy audacious goal approach and much more towards the small win approach What I like about small wins is they can cascade One can lead right into another Charles Duhigg has a very very nice term for it which I think is important He calls them "keystone habits" And you know Peter Sims has written about "little bets" And the science is with Dan Teresa Amabiles research at Harvard backs him up Via The Progress Principle: Using Small Wins to Ignite Joy Engagement and Creativity at Work: Peoples inner work lives seemed to lift or drag depending on whether or not their projects moved forward even by small increments Small wins often had a surprisingly strong positive effect and small losses a surprisingly strong negative one Olympic swimmers use small wins to make it through months of rigorous training And Dan even applied "small wins" to how you can best use my weekly emails: Like when someone reads your weekly email Eric Somebody might look at that and say "Can I do everything on here" I have to say the answer is no But thats the wrong question The real question is "Can I do one small thing to get better today" And the answer to that question is always "Yeah Im sure you can" (For more on the science of how to be resilient click here) Some of you may still be skeptical Or feel these strategies wont work because of what an exquisitely special snowflake you are And maybe youre right So lets take the biggest step of all and tailor this for you 5) Ask Whats Meaningful To You Whats really important to you Yeah you When we do things that are important to us personally ("intrinsic" motivation) not to get rewards and not to impress others ("extrinsic" motivation) we often become productivity machines decimating obstacles Dan told me about a study at West Point where they compared the performance of intrinsically motivated students ("I want to serve my country") to extrinsically motivated students ("I want the prestige of being an officer") and to students who were an intrinsic/extrinsic hybrid The students who were intrinsically motivated who were doing things because of internal reasons bested the other two groups and were the most satisfied Thats happiness and productivity Heres Dan: Theres a study by Barry Schwartz and Amy Wrzesniewsk about West Point grads They had three groups of people Youve got those who are motivated intrinsically youve got those who had a mix of intrinsic and extrinsic and those who were motivated extrinsically So extrinsic would be "I want to rise in the ranks and become an officer because thats a really powerful position and its prestigious I want to go to West Point to get a free scholarship" Intrinsic would be "I want to serve my country I want to test my abilities" The mix would be "I want to serve my country and test my abilities but I also love the prestige of being an officer" What they found is that the purely intrinsic motivated people outperformed the purely extrinsically motivated people But the purely intrinsically motivated people also outperformed the people who were hybrids Ironically it is often by being true to yourself and not thinking about rewards that you get the rewards and esteem you want Heres Dan: So there is this kind of interesting zen-like thing The route to these rewards is not to be cognitive of the rewards What was so compelling about this West Point study was that they had a very very very large sample A full decade of West Point graduates that looks at and measures their attitudes going in and then objective measures of what they did afterwards over a very long period of time Thats what is so compelling about it (For more on how to stop procrastinating click here) Okay this is a lot of info How do we put it to use Enough Reading Time For Doing Heres what we learned from Dan: Autonomy: Look for places where youll have freedom to get things done your way as long as you achieve the bosss objectives Avoid micromanagers Mastery: Where will you learn improve and grow at something that is meaningful to you Purpose: Will you be contributing to a big important cause Or will you be doing something where you feel your contribution is important Feeling a bit more motivated Ill leave you with this great quote from Neil DeGrasse Tyson: The problem often not discovered until late in life is that when you look for things in life like love meaning motivation it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock The most successful people in life recognize that in life they create their own love they manufacture their own meaning they generate their own motivation For me I am driven by two main philosophies know more today about the world than I knew yesterday And lessen the suffering of others Youd be surprised how far that gets you This piece originally appeared on Barking Up the Wrong Tree Join over 151000 readers Get a free weekly
