first_imgLast week was ‘Stand Up Awareness Week’ – and students at Loreto Secondary School in Letterkenny formed a human rainbow to mark the occasion. This is a time for second-level schools in Ireland to join BeLong To and take a stand against homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying. The week is an opportunity for schools to look at how they can make them safe and supportive places for LGBTI+ students. Belong To ran a nationwide incentive inviting school communities to come in. The hashtag #comein was created by BelongTo for Stand Up week  because ‘no one would have to come out if everyone else chose to come in’On Friday the Loreto school community was invited to come in. Each group represented a different colour of the rainbow and over 900 staff and students united to form a human rainbow.  The rainbow was a symbol of the support our school extends to the LGBTI+ community. “Staff and students displayed that we are allies, that our students are there for their LGBTI+ friends and that our staff are supportive of our LGBTI+ students,” Loreto said. “We all deserve to feel safe, welcome and accepted within our school community and Loreto Letterkenny strives to make this a reality for all our students. “We hope that our inclusivity demonstrates to all our students that our school is safe place to be yourself and that you will be treated with dignity and respect regardless of how you identify. “Loreto Letterkenny is a place where all students can thrive and reach their full potential.” Picture special: Loreto Secondary School marks LGBTI ‘stand up’ week was last modified: November 19th, 2019 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say Napoli boss Ancelotti defends players after Cagliari shockby Carlos Volcanoa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveNapoli boss Carlo Ancelotti was furious after defeat to Cagliari.A late Lucas Castro header proved the winner.“We are very disappointed with the result, but it was not a bad performance at all,” Ancelotti told Sky Sport Italia.“We allowed Cagliari very few counter-attacks, hardly any. At the end, we were taken by surprise, as we stopped to complain about a foul on Fernando Llorente and allowed ourselves to be caught cold off balance.“Napoli created chances, forced saves, hit the upright twice, so it was overall a decent performance. Cagliari focused entirely on defence and closing down all the spaces.“It was paradoxical that (Kalidou) Koulibaly was sent off for saying something to the referee and we had a series of yellow cards, when if there was a team that was playing rough, it was Cagliari.“I won’t have this overall performance reduced to once incident. Napoli played very well. We could’ve done better, but that’s always true in every situation. I do not judge games only on the results and I won’t accept that attitude.“Seeing as you are so desperate to find something to criticise, fine, I’ll say we are sobbing when looking at the table. Happy? I am not remotely worried, not at all.” last_img read more

first_imgMalaysia`s prime minister Mahathir Mohamad (L) and China`s premier Li Keqiang talk during a signing ceremony at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing on 20 August.Malaysian prime minister Mahathir Mohamad called on China’s top leadership to help with his country’s fiscal problems Monday, as he seeks to revise major Beijing-backed projects signed under his country’s scandal-plagued former regime.The 93-year-old leader, who returned for a second stint as premier following a shock election win in May, has railed against a series of deals struck with Chinese state-owned companies by the administration of toppled leader Najib Razak.His government has suspended China-backed projects worth more than $22 billion, including a major rail link, and Mahathir had pledged to raise the issue of what he views as unfair terms related to some of the deals on his five-day trip.During a press conference with Chinese premier Li Keqiang at Beijing’s Great Hall of the People, Mahathir thanked China for agreeing to increase imports of specialty agricultural products, such as durian fruit.But Mahathir also said he expected more from the world’s second largest economy.“I believe that China will look sympathetically towards the problems that we have to resolve and perhaps help us in resolving some of our internal fiscal problems,” he said.During his nine-year rule, Najib was accused of cutting quick deals with Beijing in return for help paying off debts linked to a massive financial scandal that ultimately helped bring down his long-ruling coalition.Last week, Mahathir had said that he would look to cancel or modify the previous administration’s agreements with China, stressing that “the most important thing is for us to save money”.Mahathir is seeking to cut Malaysia’s national debt, which has ballooned to some $250 billion.Despite the threat to revise China-linked contracts, Mahathir is seeking to strengthen business ties with Beijing during the trip.He met the founder of e-commerce giant Alibaba, Jack Ma, in the eastern city of Hangzhou on Saturday. Mahathir also oversaw the signing of a cooperation agreement between Chinese auto firm Geely and Malaysian carmaker Proton.China is the top trading partner of Malaysia, which is home to a substantial ethnic Chinese minority.Bilateral ties were warm under the old regime, and Chinese investment into the country surged as Beijing signed deals for major infrastructure and construction projects.But critics said there was often a lack of transparency and the terms, such as interest rates on loans, were unfavourable to Malaysia, fuelling suspicions about Najib’s real motives.Najib and his cronies were accused of plundering billions of dollars from a sovereign wealth fund, 1MDB, in an audacious fraud.Since losing power, Najib has been charged over the scandal and will stand trial. He denies any wrongdoing.As well as the rail link, which would have run from the Thai border to Kuala Lumpur, the government has suspended a China-backed project to build pipelines after alleging that almost all the money for the work was paid out but only a fraction of the project had been completed.last_img

first_imgRecaptured drug lord Joaquin `El Chapo` Guzman is escorted by soldiers at the hangar belonging to the office of the attorney general in Mexico City, Mexico on 8 January 2016. Photo: ReutersJoaquin Guzman, the Mexican drug lord known as “El Chapo,” entered a Colorado prison known as “the Alcatraz of the Rockies” on Friday to begin a life sentence after being found guilty of a raft of crimes including conspiracy to commit murder.Guzman was sentenced to life in prison, plus 30 years, on Wednesday in a federal court in the New York borough of Brooklyn. A jury convicted him of drug trafficking and engaging in multiple murder conspiracies as the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, one of Mexico’s largest, most violent drug-trafficking organizations.”We can confirm that Joaquin Guzman is in the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons at United States Penitentiary (USP) Administrative Maximum (ADX) Florence, located in Florence, Colorado,” the US Bureau of Prisons said in a statement.The high-security “Supermax” prison, 115 miles (185 km) south of Denver with about 375 inmates, has never had an escape since it opened in 1994.Guzman twice escaped maximum-security prisons in Mexico and was re-captured in 2016. He was extradited to the United States in 2017 to face US charges.Guzman, 62, joins a long list of notorious criminals who call the prison home. They include “Unabomber” Ted Kaczynski on 11 September conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui, Terry Nichols from the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing and Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.The prison is nicknamed “Alcatraz of the Rockies” after the San Francisco prison whose inmates included the gangster Al Capone and convicted murderer Robert Franklin Stroud, known as the Birdman of Alcatraz.Like other prisoners, Guzman will likely be confined for around 23 hours a day to a solitary cell that has a narrow window about 42 inches (107 cm) high and angled upward so only the sky is visible.His cell is expected to have a television, providing him access to religious services and educational programs.Special restrictions are used to ensure that inmates cannot exert influence or make threats beyond prison walls. Prisoners cannot move around without being escorted. Head counts are done at least six times a day.Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Thursday called it “inhumane” for Guzman to face life imprisonment under harsh conditions.last_img

first_imgSwami Vivekananda was a key figure in the introduction of the Indian philosophies of Vedanta and Yoga to the West. He had also been a ‘pakhawaj’ player and is known worldwide for his contribution in the revival of Hinduism. He is an epitome of Indian culture. To further pay regards to this outstanding individual, the President of India, Pranab Mukherjee inaugurated the opening of ‘Vivekanand Auditorium’, housed in the Kathak Kendra, one of the constituent units of the Sangeet Natak Akademi by the push of a button, on Swami Vivekananda’s death anniversary in the national Capital. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The President was received by Dr Mahesh Sharma, Minister of State for Culture, NK Sinha, Secretary Minister of Culture and Shekhar Sen, Chairman of Sangeet Natak Akademi. The President, spoke of how the concept of an auditorium or ‘preksha grihas’ was founded as early as in the ‘Natyashastra’, the Sanskrit text on the various forms of performing arts. He spoke about the extraordinary talent of Swami Vivekananda who was himself an established pakhawaj player and hailed from a family of talented musicians. And thus it was only befitting to dedicate this auditorium in the name of Swamiji.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixHe also said that the Akademi has provided a safe haven to artists and practitioners and a vibrant intellectual space to thinkers and scholars.The Welcome address was given by Aruna Sairam, Vice Chairperson of SNA. NK Sinha spoke about the challenges faced in modern times where speed, technology and quick results are expected by everyone. In this situation one has to nurture and provide support to musician and dancers who train for years in the art forms to provide patrons of these art forms with time, patience and rigorous practice besides sheer courage to surrender one’s entire lifetime to its dedicated pursuit. This auditorium was a humble offering in that direction of support born of deep appreciation and respect to the artists. Dr Mahesh Sharma spoke about how in India we trace our heritage back thousands of years and how through the Guru-shishya parampara owing to the unique history of India, layers of evolution were added to these art forms through diverse new innovations, influences and ideologies. No dance form displays this better than Kathak. He also elaborated  about the importance and role that an auditorium plays in the life of an artist. The auditorium which has been built keeping the best acoustics and architectural principles in mind will provide the students of Kathak Kendra and the artist community with a world class auditorium. The function was marked with a short cultural programme. For the inauguration there was Shunk Vadan, Vedic chants and a song of Swami Vivekananda.last_img read more
