Youth found Manitoba pot ads boring prompted changes government documents

first_imgWINNIPEG – Before going public with its cannabis awareness ad campaign, the Manitoba government turned to experts for advice — teens and young adults.Three different focus groups with participants from 16 to 24 years old were held in September.Documents obtained by The Canadian Press under freedom-of- information law show the young people found the proposed ads boring, sometimes didn’t get the intended message, and rejected a proposed slogan tied to former United States first lady Nancy Reagan.One ad features a pirate-style skull and crossbones, except the bones are made of joints. The ad originally featured the phrase “Black Market Cannabis Isn’t Worth The Risk.” Some people in the focus groups didn’t seem to understand that the implied risk was an overdose or other negative effects.“A common risk mentioned was not knowing the THC level of the marijuana purchased, but in most cases, the concern was about getting marijuana that was not strong enough, rather than purchasing marijuana that had an elevated THC level,” said a focus-group report prepared by PRA Inc. for the province.“Most participants who had purchased street drugs felt that their sources were reliable and were not concerned about their drugs being laced.”The government took some advice to heart and ended up replacing “black market cannabis” with “street cannabis.”“Participants suggested that it should be called ‘street cannabis’ because black market cannabis ‘sounded like a place where you can buy a kidney,’” the report stated.Much of the feedback was positive — the ads were described as “bland or “boring” but the informational approach was welcome. An ad warning about the dangers of impaired driving was applauded for showing how cannabis use can affect others.One ad that showed a sullen pair of eyes against a black background, accompanied by a warning about cannabis potentially leading to depression and anxiety, got a thumbs-down.“Some participants did not connect the image to the message, saying the eyes looked ‘like a sad high,’” the report said.The government ended up using “Know The Risks” as its main slogan for the ad campaign. The report said it tried other options on the focus groups, including “Just Say Know” — a play on words connected to the “Just Say No” anti-drug campaign led by Reagan in the U.S. in the 1980s.Some people in the focus groups interpreted “Just Say Know” as a “subtle message not to use cannabis as opposed to learning more about the risks,” the report states.Combined with another ad campaign, the Manitoba government has spent $450,000 on raising awareness of the potential dangers associated with cannabis use. The ads have been in online videos, posters and mailouts.last_img read more

first_imgThe subtitle of the third John Wick movie is Parabellum which translates to “prepare for war” from Latin. That translation is appropriate for what the excommunicated assassin will likely be going through given where the last movie left off, but it could also apply to how the franchise’s star Keanu Reeves trains for the role. Beginning with the first John Wick movie Reeves has taken his physical and tactical preparation deathly serious.Before each installment Reeves, 54, spends days on the gun range being put through drills by Navy SEALs and rehearsing stunts with the legendary crew from 87eleven Action Design. Then during the shoots he will be thrown through windows, taking falls, and riding horseback through city streets, for example. Advertisement John Wick / Keanu Reeves ~ Courtesy Of Lionsgate Facebook This level of physical intensity would be difficult for a man half Reeves’ age, which where Patrick Murphy comes in. The Los Angeles native not only a physical trainer, but also a movement specialist able to think about these projects holistically, making sure that the actor is still able to walk when director Chad Stahelski calls wrap.“Keanu is an animal,” says Murphy. “I never have to convince him to do another rep. But our workouts are designed to make him feel good and strong, not destroy him. Because he is getting so beat up during the shoot as it is.”John Wick / Keanu Reeves ~ Courtesy Of LionsgateIn order to get Keanu’s body where it needed to be Murphy programmed huge circuits with a large volume of reps and minimal rest. There was also a wide range in the variety of exercises to match how dynamic the character of John Wick is as a physical force, being about to get as hard as he gives.“John Wick needs crazy endurance, a powerful core, and grip strength,” says Murphy. “I spent a lot of time dreaming up different combinations and pairings of exercises.” There was also special attention paid to the shoulders, which got a lot of use during the jiu jitsu, gun-fu, Judo, wrestling, and other stunts.“I pay a lot of attention to the lines that the body naturally wants to make,” says Murphy. “That is what I am doing with Keanu, working to encourage proper posture and alignment, which in the end gives him better leverage and strength.” These adjustments, along with recovery methods like massage and acupuncture, allowed Reeves to survive the shoots, while Murphy admits just barely.“I am always blown away by his level of commitment,” Murphy says. “There are no quick edits to save him, he is stunt fighting with dozens of guys at a time, and really selling it. By the end of filming he is almost as battered and bruised as the character he is playing. There is the heart of a warrior in there.”Here is a shoulder workout from Murphy that will get you strong enough to Judo throw bad guys over your back.A Look Inside Keanu Reeves’ Training For John Wick 3By Patrick MurphySome Rules of Engagement:Keep the back of your head aligned with your spine, avoid forward head or head down.Keep shoulders down; avoid elevation and shruggingKeep core tight.Shoulder CircuitPerform 3 rounds of this circuit with perfect form and no rest periods.Band External Rotations: 20 reps (each arm)Band Reverse Fly With Scapular Retraction: 20 repsBand Lateral Raises: 20 repsBrand Front Raises: 20 repsBand Presses: 20 repsPush-Up Bridge Alternating Hand Taps: 20 repsFloor Prone Handcuff Drill: 20 repsJohn Wick 3 hits theaters May 17th, 2019. Check out training programs from Patrick Murphy HEREBy Charles Thorp ~ Men’s Journal Advertisementcenter_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Login/Register With: Twitterlast_img read more

Grad student receives international grape and wine societys top scholarship

A combination of leading research on an emerging Ontario wine style, academic excellence and involvement in the local wine industry has yielded a Brock University PhD student top honours at a recent industry conference.The American Society of Enology and Viticulture (ASEV) named Jennifer Kelly the 2018 recipient of ASEV Presidents’ Award for Scholarship in Enology, the highest award for a student studying in her field. The international organization is a consortium of researchers, students, professionals and suppliers looking to advance the grape and wine industry around the world.“I hold ASEV in high regard, so for the committee to select me is extremely humbling,” Kelly said. “They are the gold standard for information in both the oenology and viticulture sector.”Working under the supervision of Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute Director Debbie Inglis and CCOVI Researcher Gary Pickering, Kelly is examining how yeast choice impacts wine quality and consumer preference in appassimento-style wine made in Ontario.The $16,000 award also included attending the organization’s annual conference and having the opportunity to meet and address the board in Monterey, California from June 18 to 21.Kristen Barnhisel, Chair of ASEV’s scholarship committee and winemaker at J. Lohr Vineyards and Wines in San Jose, Calif., said it’s only the top level of students who apply for the Presidents’ Award and it’s always a thin margin that separates the candidates.“We’re looking for the next generation of leaders in the industry and hopefully future ASEV board members,” Barnhisel said. “What set Jennifer apart was how articulate she was and her ability to describe her research.”At the conference, ASEV also announced 35 traditional scholarships. Brock MSc students Andrea Barker and Briann Dorin were acknowledged along with students from 18 other schools including Cornell University, Texas A&M University, University of California and the University of British Columbia.“For Brock to have three graduate students recognized by ASEV in the same year is outstanding,” Inglis said. “It speaks to the student’s stellar academic achievements, high-quality research and community involvement that has positioned these students to be future leaders in our industry.”Barker, who is co-supervised by Inglis and CCOVI Senior Scientist Jim Willwerth, received a scholarship valued at more than $3,900. Her research looks at identifying the most suitable clones and rootstocks for Ontario grape growers by examining the vineyard performance, fruit quality and winemaking potential for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling grapes.Dorin, a student in CCOVI Researcher Andrew Reynolds’ lab, received a $2,500 scholarship.  Her research looks at the effectiveness of remote sensing technologies in detecting vineyard variation in Riesling vineyards, which can lead to healthier and more uniform vineyards. read more

Watch ESA NASA Celebrate 20 Years of the ISS

first_imgStay on target Russia’s Humanoid Robot Returns Safely to EarthCIMON Returns to Earth After 14 Months on ISS The International Space Station turned 20 this week, and ESA celebrated with a stunning timelapse video from outer space.The European Space Agency on Monday released a 15-minute movie, featuring more than 21,000 images of Earth.Captured by German astronaut and current station commander Alexander Gerst, the photos have been stitched together and sped up 12.5 times.“Join us as we celebrate 20 years of international collaboration and research for the benefit of Earth with ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst’s longest timelapse yet,” the agency wrote in a video description.The beautiful clip, set to a score by LA-based musician Matt Piper, takes viewers on a journey from Tunisia, across Beijing, and through Australia in two round trips.Follow the station’s location using the map in the top right corner of the screen, alongside annotations on the images themselves.Two years after the ISS was born, NASA astronaut Bill Shepherd and cosmonauts Yuri Gidzenko and Sergei Krikalev became the first crew to live on board.In the decades since, a rotating catalog of crew members have taken spacewalks, conducted experiments, and made history.“Since the very first module Zarya launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome on Nov. 20, 1998, the International Space Station has delivered a whole new perspective on this planet we call home,” ESA said.The three astronauts who call the ISS home, meanwhile, commemorated the 20th anniversary with a special video dispatch, released Monday by NASA.In a joint message from Gerst, Roscosmos flight engineer Sergey Prokopyev, and NASA flight engineer Serena Aunon-Chancellor, the astronauts share a vision of progress and hope.“Seven billion humans live on planet Earth, three humans live in space right now,” Gerst said. “We are from different continents, we are friends. We are here for you. We are your eyes, looking down on this beautiful planet.“Here we are in the most complex machine that humanity has ever built. But this didn’t just happen by itself,” he continued. “Humans built this with their visions and with their hands.

MA Scorecard December 2008

first_imgBuying? Selling? Know someone who is?Submit M&A related tips and news to associate editor Jason Fell. From layoffs to plunging credit markets, publishing industry M&A activity seemed to grind to a halt in late October/early November. According to predictions from the Jordan, Edmiston Group managing directors Tolman Geffs and Scott Peters, the market could bottom out before the end of the year and not see growth until 2010.November 11Buyer: WPP GroupSeller: The Nielsen Company (SRDS)Sale Price: (trade)Multiple: N/AThe deal behind the deal:The Nielsen Company traded media rates and data provider SRDS to U.K.-based ad agency the WPP Group in exchange for the remaining 50 percent stake in AGBNielsen Media Research, making Nielsen the group’s sole owner.As part of the asset swap, Nielsen will transfer healthcare media group PERQ/HCI—which merged with SRDS in 2002—and its 11 percent stake in Brazilian-based research firm the IBOPE Group to WPP. “In an increasingly digital world, it is essential for Nielsen to strengthen its global market position,” Nielsen chairman and CEO David Calhoun said in a statement. In October, the WPP Group acquired TNS Media Intelligence parent Taylor Nelson Sofres for $1.9 billion.Our panel says:“SRDS, a venerable brand, has obvious ties to Nielsen’s Adweek Media Group. The trade, however, is a strategic one in that it it’s a good fit for both parties, and gives Nielsen full ownership of its global TV ratings group.”November 12Buyer: Tiger Oak PublicationsSeller: Sabey Corp. (Washington CEO)Sale Price: N/AMultiple: N/AThe deal behind the deal:Regional publisher Tiger Oak Publications has acquired Washington CEO from Sabey Corp., a Tukwila, Washington-based real estate developer. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.As part of the deal, Tiger Oak will shutter Washington CEO and fold its assets into Seattle Business. Tiger Oak also publishers Seattle, Northwest Meetings and Events and Urban Pages.“I operated Washington CEO even though it wasn’t core to our business because I believe the business community needs a strong and respected voice,” Dave Sabey, Sabey Corp. chairman, said in a statement. “We made the decision in these challenging economic times that the best way to preserve a voice was by merging Washington CEO into Seattle Business.”Washington CEO was published monthly and had a circulation of 32,500. The December issue will be its last.Our panel says: “Folding [Washington CEO] into the buyer’s stronger magazine—Seattle Business—leverages former subscribers along with some good staff, and strengthens Tiger Oak’s foothold in the market. We’ve seen several of these sales and it strengthens the regional publishing sector as a whole.”November 12Buyer: Imagine Nation BooksSeller: Reader’s Digest Association (Books Are Fun)Sale Price: Approx. $17.5 millionMultiple: N/AThe deal behind the deal: As part of a multi-tiered transaction, the Reader’s Digest Association agreed to sell assets associated with Books Are Fun, including intellectual property and product inventory, to Imagine Nation Books for roughly $17.5 million, payable over three years.Following the close of the transaction—which is expected in December—RDA will “wind down” the Books Are Fun operations, the company said in a statement. INB will integrate Books Are Fun salespeople with its own team.The companies also have entered into a “multi-year strategic alliance” in which RDA will sell products through INB’s display marketing channels. Our panel says:“Obviously, Imagine Nation Books is banking on the continued value of Reader’s Digest book products. If they can successfully integrate the teams they will create what will likely be a stronger sales operation.”November 14Buyer: Congressional QuarterlySeller: TrendTRACKSale Price: N/AMultiple: N/AThe deal behind the deal:Washington-based Congressional Quarterly Inc. has acquired Web-based state legislation information search engine TrendTRACK. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.CQ, which is owned by St. Petersburg Times newspaper publisher Times Publishing Co., hopes to tap into TrendTRACK’s search capabilities, which connects clients with the status and text of every bill in every active legislature, the company says. Clients—including trade and professional associations, education institutions and public affairs firms—use the service to create customized reports and e-mail alerts.In May, Congressional Quarterly Inc. sold CQ Press, its book publishing business, to SAGE, an international publisher of journals, books and electronic media for academic, educational and professional markets.Our panel says: “This makes sense.

Rethinking The Asphalt Parking Spot

first_imgImagine a parking spot. Typically a slab of asphalt waiting for the next vehicle to roll on by. Now imagine that spot transformed into a green oasis among the urban jungle for an entire day. That’s what happened recently when the national event, Parking Day, came to Anchorage. The event was hosted by the Anchorage park Foundation, the Anchorage Economic Development Corporation, and Anchorage Downtown Partnership. Download Audio:Add some marshmellows, coffee and some tunes and you get an asphalt makeover. Photo by Ashley Snyder/APRN.Instead of cars, parking spaces all over town were occupied by tents, turf, volunteers, and booths offering a variety of activities for people passing by to participate in. Smoke rolled out from the fire pits and barbeques, music floated down the sidewalks, and the green of plants and trees strategically placed in each location added some color to the otherwise gray backdrop.Beth Nordlund, executive director of the Anchorage Park Foundation, led the effort to bring the project to Anchorage.“I don’t know when parking day was originated, but we have someone who used to live in New York City and has seen it really done up and wanted to see if we could be the most northern site in the country for parking day, and I think we are. We’ve been thinking about it and dreaming about it for a few years and this year someone decided to make it happen.”Companies from around Anchorage set up and sponsored the parking lots. SPAWN Ideas and Snow Goose Cafe teamed up to provide hotdogs and live music. Intrinsic Landscapes built a 20 foot long wooden structure with stairs and benches for people to relax and enjoy. Some, like Anna Brawley, an associate with Agnew Beck Consulting, took a warm camp-style approach on the damp and slightly chilly day.“You guys want a s’more? Yeah, we thought we’d have a real homey camping set up. We have a fire pit and a tent if it starts raining again and just kind of inviting people in from the street.”Many people walking by couldn’t help but stop and see what was going on. As the rain lightened up and lunch time rolled around more people ventured outside to the booths. Groups stopped by to grab a snack and others huddled under the tents close to the fire pits to warm up. Bree Kessler, who visited all of the booths downtown, enjoyed the change in scenery.“I thought it was a really great way for people to think about how might we use parking spaces in a different way.”While the parking spots are now back to serving their original purpose, the idea that a dull space can be temporarily transformed into something exciting, could stick around for a while. In Anchorage, I’m Ashley Snyder.last_img read more

As Work Continues On Spending Plan Walker To Revive State Of The

first_imgIt’s been almost a decade since a governor has delivered a State of the Budget address. With Alaska now in deficit-spending mode, Gov. Bill Walker plans to bring the speech back. APRN’s Alexandra Gutierrez reports.Download AudioThe last State of the Budget address was delivered by Gov. Frank Murkowski in 2006. That year, Alaska was looking at a billion-dollar surplus, and lawmakers needed to decide what to do with the extra revenue. There was a chance to buy a stake in Trans-Alaska oil Pipeline, and put money toward a natural gas project. Jim Clark was the governor’s chief of staff then, and he says their office was in an exceptional situation.“We wanted to talk about that because we were closing in on a deal with the producers,” says Clark.Now, the State of the Budget speech is being revived under a different sort of exceptional situation. Oil is less than half the value it was a year ago, and the state is looking at a multi-billion-dollar budget shortfall as a result.“This kind of year is far worse than our administration had it,” says Clark.The State of the Budget address can be delivered separately from the State of the State, but it is not done very often. It’s logistically more challenging, because it means getting the Legislature in one room on two nights, back to back. It also means hoping the public turns on the radio or television to hear speeches two nights in a row. In the past 15 years, it’s only been done once.Grace Jang, a spokesperson for Gov. Walker, says the current budget realities make two speeches — one this coming Wednesday and one on Thursday — necessary. “The state is facing an unprecedented fiscal challenge, and the governor wants to make sure that there’s enough time to address what’s coming and to communicate to Alaskans just how dire the situation is,” says Jang.Jang won’t use the term “crisis” — the administration is trying to avoid panic language — but she says the State of the Budget address isn’t making a comeback just because the administration thought it was a nice tradition.“Is it going to happen again? Is there going to be another State of the Budget speech in coming years? Hard to say,” says Jang.Right now, Walker has currently offered the Legislature a placeholder budget. He submitted a version drafted by his predecessor, without changes and without endorsement, in December to meet a deadline. But he’s advised the Legislature that he will offer a seriously revised budget sometime before the drop-dead date of February 18. Walker has also asked his commissioners to look at how their agencies would manage cuts of up to 8 percent. House Speaker Mike Chenault says legislative leadership is still waiting for that information.“We have no idea right now. The administration hasn’t told us that they’re going to provide us with anything dealing with the budget yet,” says the Nikiski Republican.His office had questions about Walker’s request to give a State of the Budget address without actually having provided the Legislature a budget with which to work. The Speaker also requested that the Legislature’s research staff produce a timeline of when the governor has provided separate speeches to find out how unusual the request was.Chenault says the Legislature plans to start work on the budget shortly after they gavel in, adding that he would like direction on the governor’s budget sooner rather than later.“We’ll wait to hear both the speeches and hopefully hear from the governor on which direction he would like to go,” says Chenault.According to budget director Pat Pitney, the administration is not planning to have a finalized document ready by the State of the Budget address, but will have established target spending levels for each state agency.last_img read more

The artist Madan Lal leaves it to the viewers to follow the quest and find the answer to the reflection that eludes like a mirage.The artist used symbols of organic elements like floral patterns, egrets, lotus, germination of seeds, among other, to find their place along with the fast pace of technology symbolized by the steering wheel, globe, kettle, glasses, watches. Each canvas is like a book which in the initial glance attracts with a visual appeal, but when looked at more closely requires an attentive mind, to understand many interwoven aspects and elements, that could range from mundane life to a spiritual seeking.

Kolkata Police mulls inclusion of women between 60 and 65 yrs under

first_imgKolkata: Kolkata Police is mulling to add elderly women between the age of 60-65 years under the ambit of ‘Pronam’, despite the criteria being that only persons above the age of 65 years can be a member of the organisation.On Tuesday, an interactive session with ‘Pronam’ members was arranged by Kolkata Police at Alipore Bodyguard Lines, where Additional Commissioner of Police (IV) Ashoke Kumar Prasad, along with other senior police officials stated that they are planning to take several steps in order to secure the elderly citizens of Kolkata. It was also announced that the method of offline registration for new members has been reintroduced as many of the elderly citizens face trouble operating the modern technology. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataOn Tuesday, ‘Pronam’ members from Tollygunge, Lake, Bhowanipore, Chetla, Garfa, New Alipore, Gariahat and Metiabruz police station areas were present at the Bodyguard Lines auditorium, where Kolkata Police officials talked about some dos and don’ts which are essential to stay safe from antisocial elements. During the programme, elderly citizens were also sensitised about the recent trend of bank frauds. Following the bank-related awareness, police officials requested the Pronam members to lock the doors of their houses and use magic eye, auto lock and other security features in order stay safe. Taking the instance of the recent murders at Netaji Nagar, ‘Pronam’ members have been requested to inform the local police station as well as the ‘Pronam’ authorities, if any labourers get called at their home for work. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in statePrasad also stated that as per criteria, only those elderly persons who reside alone and are above the age of 65 years, can be members of ‘Pronam’. Since the women are more vulnerable, Kolkata Police is mulling to add women above 60 years of age as well. For men, the criteria will remain the same as earlier. “We are looking into this and will do the needful soon,” said Prasad. During the programme, several elderly citizens advised some steps which the senior police officials accepted and stated that they are looking into them. Subhas Pal Chowdhury, a resident of Tollygunge, suggested to install an alarm system in the houses of ‘Pronam’ members which would be connected with police control room as well as the local police station. Another elderly person suggested a WhatsApp group in every police station’s jurisdiction, so that the ‘Pronam’ members can be in touch with each other and police officials.last_img read more

This Gadget Aims to Keep Kids and Their Families Connected

first_img Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Anyone who has children, or has young kids in their family, knows the frustrations that come with staying in touch. You want to talk to them, and they want to talk to you, but you’re not always together and they are too darn young to be trusted with a cell phone of their own. Parents wind up becoming glorified secretaries for their kids, managing the flow of incoming and outgoing calls with family and friends. Blegh.Related: This Super ‘Smart’ Oven Won’t Screw Up DinnerA new startup called Insensi aims to simplify the kiddie communications conundrum. Founded last year by Ilan Abehassera, the New York City-based company has created ILY, a device that acts as a central communications hub for your kids. It allows your children to make and receive phone and video calls with family and close friends. Here’s a quick look at what ILY does:No parents or other adults neccesary. At least not after ILY is all set up.With its 8-inch touchscreen, ILY connects to the Internet either by hardline or Wi-Fi and can essentially replace a landline phone by plugging your phone cable into the device. Parents program the contacts their child is allowed to receive messages from. Not everyone needs an ILY device. Your contacts simply need to have the ILY app on the smartphones (Android and iOS) or desktop in order to start chatting.In addition to sending voice and video calls, ILY is able to send photos, drawings (made right on ILY via the touchscreen), play music and record video messages and notes (such as shopping lists, etc.). While connected to the Internet, ILY doesn’t have a web browser, so there’s no way for children to surf the web or download any questionable content. Parents can see a record of the daily communications over ILY, meaning you can see who you kids are chatting with, how and for how long.Related: An Unassuming Kitchen Tool Blocks Wi-Fi So You Can Take Back MealtimeWorth noting: This first version of ILY isn’t mobile. The device is intended to stay put inside your house. If your child is old enough to leave the house on his or her own but still not old enough — in your opinion — to have a cell phone, ILY won’t fill of all your child’s communications needs.Image Credit: InsensiAbehassera — who co-founded task management app Producteev in 2008 — says he and his team has spent the last 14 months developing ILY. The idea came after countless nights traveling for work and having to bug his wife to wrangle up his kids to talk via her cell phone. Not to mention having to arrange times for granparents and other family members to call, he says.ILY is available for pre-order starting today for $199. Abehassera says ILY is expected to begin shipping this fall, when it will retail for somewhere between $250 and $300.Related: This Aromatic Alarm Clock Wakes You Up to the Sweet Smell of Money June 23, 2015 This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.center_img 3 min read Enroll Now for Freelast_img read more

Don Shooter shows health improvement Associated PressMEXICO CITY (AP) – Mothers rushed to pull their kids out of school, shopkeepers slammed down their metal gates, and bus drivers radioed one another about streets to avoid after false rumors of shootouts and gunmen traveling in a caravan in a Mexico City suburb began circulating on social networks.The false reports of violence and impending attacks in Nezahualcoyotl soon included nearby suburbs and at least one borough in the capital, spreading panic and prompting police to take to the streets in force while officials turned to Twitter, television and even hand-distributed flyers to deny the rumors. Percastre said the rumors first began spreading on Twitter and Facebook late Wednesday after pedicab drivers fought with members of an activist group known as Antorcha Campesina, or Farmers’ Torch, over who could operate a taxi base in the neighboring town of Chicoloapan. At least one person was killed.Shortly after the clash, people began tweeting that vehicles were being set on fire and that Nezahualcoyotl “was a lawless city,” Percastre said.One tweet read: “Warning: Cd. Neza has been taken by masked gunmen, cutting phone lines.” Another warned of gunfire: “Don’t get close to the train tracks, there is shootings, they are stealing everything.”“These are people with dark objectives who tried to destabilize the city and were able to instill fear in people and make them take refuge at home for a few days because they started a psychosis,” Percastre said.On Thursday, several schools suspended classes, some businesses remained closed and pedestrian and motor traffic declined notably in Nezahualcoyotl, a city of 1.1 million people, as rumors gained strength and began spreading to Iztapalapa.Iztapalapa’s borough government said in a statement Friday that its emergency center had received more than 1,300 phone calls echoing the rumors. Officials have been handing out flyers that say none of the rumors were true. “There were no acts of violence or disorder against families, schools or businesses in Iztapalapa. For your peace of mind, say no to rumors,” the flyer says. Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Check your body, save your life Patients with chronic pain give advice Twitter and Facebook are often used to warn of gunbattles and other dangers in Mexico’s violence-wracked cities, but the last two years have also seen social networks used to spread false warnings that have caused chaos in several cities. Mexico City has avoided large-scale violence, although drug-related killings and other crime have hit some of its suburbs, like Nezahualcoyotl.In Nezahualcoyotl, to the west of the capital, authorities have received more than 3,000 phone calls with false reports of violence since Wednesday night, when the rumors began, city council spokesman Luis Percastre said Friday.“They told us an indoor farmers market had been set on fire and we went to check _ and nothing, it was working fine. Then someone else called to report a bank on fire and we also went _ and nothing,” Percastre said.Authorities deployed all police officers available throughout the crowded suburb and even called in two state police helicopters to patrol, he said. Prosecutors said five men had been arrested on charges of disturbing the peace Thursday night by running into a bakery in the neighboring Mexico City borough of Iztapalapa and shouting that members of criminal groups were coming to the area to cause problems. Top Stories center_img Sponsored Stories Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Last year, two people in the Gulf Coast city of Veracruz were detained and accused of terrorism and sabotage after re-tweeting rumors about gunmen attacking schools and kidnapping children. The rumors helped set off chaos, and numerous traffic accidents occurred as panicked parents rushed to get their children. The two were later released after pressure from freedom of expression groups led prosecutors to withdraw criminal charges.In 2010, a wave of messages about threatened violence shut down schools, bars and restaurants in the central city of Cuernavaca. Months earlier, rumors about gunfights in the border cities of Nuevo Laredo and Reynosa caused widespread fear and the suspension of classes.Alejandro Hope, a security analyst, wrote that rumors spread because they are credible in areas like Nezahualcoyotl, which has seen shooting attacks on bars and the dumping of bodies with signs of torture on the streets.“People are afraid because there is violence,” Hope wrote in a column posted Friday in Animal Politico, a blog about politics and security. “If we want to reduce the fear, then we must lower the levels of violence.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

the birth of our genus “The issue is that whatever anyone may say and whatever they may feel Whether we win or lose on saturday is not the issueThis story originally appeared on xoJanecom I remember donning the hijab for the first time three years ago I say it was the first time but really it was one of many times that I had slipped it on standing in front of the mirror and adjusting the folds of fabric around my face Yet this time was different Rather than take it off after prayer or a visit to the local masjid (mosque) I was hoping to wear it regularly It was sometime in winter during my freshman year of college at Northwestern and I had spent my first three months of college searching for my place among thousands of students Like any freshmen I had several identifying factors that felt true things that I felt could not go unmentioned as I sought out the people who would become my closest friends These included everything from my taste in books and music to my leftist political stance but also my religion As a Muslim growing up in a post 9/11 world I was accustomed to misconceptions about my religion my race and my identity I was acutely aware of the way I navigated the world as a brown body and how experiences of hate and injustice only magnified themselves when my mother (wearing hijab) or my sister (darker with characteristic African hair) accompanied me places My body in spite of its brown shade was still in the liminal world of racial ambiguity a place where I could pass into whiteness when it seemed convenient There were few markers of my race and my religion In spite of this however I had often felt that my religion was not something to be shed or stifled and hidden for the sake of others for the sake of their comfort I did not shy away from my heritage my deeply Egyptian roots the pride I felt for Africa and Arabia and Islam They were the places that made me a blank-American someone different That day in winter as a lonely and homesick freshman I remembered that being different was far from wanting or choosing to be different That in fact I was not in control of my narrative so long as I still sought the acceptance of those who might never want to understand me My desire to wear hijab increased in that moment Hijab became a symbol of my rejection of white-passing (or at the very least racial ambiguity) a privilege I was distinctly aware I had and that I knew was not afforded to many of my fellow non-white Americans While hijab has historically had a reputation of being a number of things to "the West" rebellion has rarely been one of them Certainly among many Muslims and in many Muslim nations it is often considered a sign of piety or at the very least culture and respect Yet rebellion or perhaps a better word is resistance is one of the many reasons many Muslims wear hijab In fact in the 1970s and 80s after a period of secularism many Muslim majority countries were undergoing an Islamic revival where the society (not the political regimes) responded to its conditions by adopting religion again It was a reversal of the Westernisation approach undermining the belief of my grandparents’ generation that the West was strengthening Muslim nations My mother describes choosing the hijab in college during the 80s a little after this revival Her parents the previous generation rejected her decision; theirs was an era where few women wore hijab where much of the traditional clothing was left behind in favor of western attire where alcohol was widely accepted rather than forbidden Many American Muslims wear hijab much like the women of the Islamic revival as a response to the changing times and a rejection of Western influence While it seems counter-intuitive to wear hijab in a world that increasingly has a negative perception of Muslims particularly when the consensus among many American Muslims is that one can be religious with our without it there is a significant presence of American Muslim women wearing the hijab as a strong sense of identity As one of these women I know and have insight to a representation of hijab that is rarely portrayed a representation that I call the American hijab the antithesis and retaliation to whiteness and the American media and a nod of solidarity to other people of color In this sense hijab rather than strictly being a religious decision is also a sociopolitical choice and representation In spite of or rather in response to the negative portrayal of Muslims by those (Muslims and non-Muslims) who seek to define our narrative as one of barbaric killing and atrocity women choose hijab a piece of cloth that declares their identity as Muslims while simultaneously expressing their individual identity as smart driven successful and independent A simple yet powerful message A way in which Muslim women can reclaim their narrative In choosing to wear the hijab American Muslim women reconstruct the narrative of Islam in America More importantly they define American Islam and celebrate its rich cultural treasures: Islamic songs by Cat Stevens after his conversion legendary icons like Malcolm X Muhammad Ali and Kareem Abdul Jabbar a deep sense of community that transcends immigrant heritage to become a new national heritage of its own a style of hijab and clothing developed to bring together Islamic tradition from across the globe This American Islam has blossomed in many forms: the Mipsters (Muslim hipsters) Muppies (Muslim Urban Professionals) IMAN (Inner-city Muslim Action Network) and many more coalitions of young Muslim Americans who bring together their cross-cultural heritage their America and their Islam and share it with the world on a daily basis through creative productions concerts health clinics and activist movements While each coalition and organization has its own goals they share a young vibrant population of men and women alike with a common religious ideology but also a sociopolitical identity In the same vein American Muslim women have created communities for hijabi fashion With blogs magazines a strong social media presence conferences and more these women are the epitome of the American hijab as an intricate sociopolitical identity Instagram is littered with photos of stylish smart women redefining the traditional garment following the lead of women like international popstar Yuna In their defiance of social convention American Muslim women wearing hijab have paved the way for others and developed a sense of social consciousness and social justice among themselves While this story of resistance may seem new it is not unique to Muslim women It is a story that rings true for many individuals of color whether it manifests itself as choosing to don an afro or to participate in the traditions of our non-American ancestors It is the story of rejecting social pressure of rejecting the influence of western media and the western world and of choosing to openly and clearly declare our difference in a society that readily rejects us as part of its narrative The choice is embracing that difference and declaring it before anyone else can This often means representing entire worlds but it also means liberation from the pressures that society imposes with respect to beauty identity race and culture At the end of the day when I have fears about continuing to represent my faith without trepidation I remember that I wear my hijab for the empowerment it grants me in declaring where I stand in a world that more often than not is in opposition to all that I am I remind myself of the power and privilege of having the choice to decide whether I am explicitly seen or unseen for my difference and for the ability to pass While hijab is important to me as both a religious and sociopolitical statement it is not my skin At the end of the day it is a piece of fabric that can be shed Yet it is my way of acknowledging the unique responsibility and burden that people of color share with respect to teaching others about their identities To my brothers and sisters of color out there: solidarity Mariam Gomaa is a recent graduate of Northwestern
