The Museum offers a powerful, emotional experience that illustrates the harms caused by current prohibitionist drug policies and advocates for new approaches rooted in dignity, health, and human rights.“This exhibit calls attention to the health and human impact of drug policy in ways that research studies and PowerPoint presentations cannot,” said Daniel Wolfe, Director of International Harm Reduction Development at the Open Society Foundations. “The artists whose work is displayed here remind us that scientific evidence is not enough, and that we must also open other channels to inspire commitment to make change in how we treat drugs and those who use them.”The Museum of Drug Policy will showcase artwork by contemporary artists, including Tracy Hetzel, watercolor illustrator of the “The Execution Series” portraits, which presents five individuals who have been executed after being convicted of drug offenses, as well as two portraits from the series “At last… rest” that Zefrey Throwell has created from the ashes of his deceased father, Douglas Throwell, which still contain traces of methamphetamine, thereby representing a deeply personal memorial, as well as an account of this drug’s lethal effects.Ann Lewis, a multidisciplinary activist artist also known as Gilf!, will exhibit a unique participatory art piece on the victims of Canada’s ongoing opioid crisis. “Through their powerful pieces, artists like Ann Lewis put a sharp focus on realities that would otherwise go unnoticed, as they are hard to visualize and absorb using statistics,” said Michael Skolnik, CEO of The Soze Agency, the design firm behind the Museum of Drug Policy. “The idea of exhibiting art pieces in a ‘pop-up museum’ also reflects Open Society Foundations premise that solutions to these complex issues must be sought through innovative approaches, by thinking outside of the box.”Art pieces by Québec artists who contributed to L’Injecteur, published by the Association québécoise pour la promotion de la santé des personnes utilisatrices de drogues, will also be on display.This free event, open to the public on May 15-17 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., will take visitors around the world, inciting them to think and act differently. The exhibit will be presented at the Mont-Royal Centre, at 2200 Mansfield St., Montréal.About the Open Society FoundationsThe Open Society Foundations work to build vibrant and tolerant societies whose governments are accountable to their citizens. Working with local communities in more than 100 countries, the Open Society Foundations support justice and human rights, freedom of expression, and access to public health and education. / WHERE: Over 20 local and international artists exhibiting 41 art pieces MONTRÉAL – Following its successful launch in New York in April 2016, the Museum of Drug Policy’s international travelling exhibit will be making its first stop in Montréal in a “pop-up museum” format on May 15-17, as part of the 25thHarm Reduction International Conference, before making its way to Europe.

TSX up in broadbased advance as US stocks hit new record highs

first_imgTORONTO – It was a positive day on both sides of the border as Canada’s main stock index pushed higher and U.S. stocks hit new record highs.The S&P/TSX composite index advanced 72.25 points to 16,076.65, with the materials and base metals sectors leading the broad-based advance.“Looking at all the sectors, they’re up — you have energy, materials and banking up. Overall, it’s a good day. I’ll take it,” said Allan Small, a senior investment adviser at HollisWealth.South of the border it was a similar story as most industries, including technology and health-care companies, posted solid gains.The Dow Jones industrial average climbed 160.50 points to 23,590.83. The S&P 500 index added 16.89 points to 2,599.03 and the Nasdaq composite index gained 71.77 points to 6,862.48.In addition to Tuesday’s record finishes on Wall Street, investors were also cheered by a report from Goldman Sachs analyst David Kostin, who forecast that the S&P 500 will rise about 14 per cent in 2018 if Congressional Republicans and U.S. President Donald Trump are successful in cutting corporate taxes.Kostin said continued economic growth and lower taxes should help the S&P 500 rise to 3,100 by the end of 2020.In Canadian corporate news, shares of RBC (TSX:RY) lost value amid news that the bank — the country’s biggest — is the first Canadian lender to be added to the Financial Stability Board’s list of global systemically important banks, which are deemed too big to fail. Its stock was down nine cents, or 0.09 per cent, to $100.92.Retail giant Loblaw Companies Ltd. (TSX:L) was also down after Canada’s competition watchdog closed a 3 1/2-year civil investigation and concluded that there wasn’t sufficient evidence to support allegations that Canada’s largest grocer abused its dominant position in dealing with its suppliers. Its stock gave back 14 cents, or 0.20 per cent, to $68.94.On the commodities front, the January crude contract advanced 51 cents to US$56.93 per barrel and the December natural gas contract was down three cents at US$3.02 per mmBTU.The December gold contract was up US$6.40 to US$1,281.70 an ounce and the December copper contract added four cents to US$3.13 a pound.In currency markets, the Canadian dollar was trading at 78.26 cents US, up 0.09 of a U.S. cent.– With a file from The Associated Press.Follow @DaveHTO on Twitter.last_img read more

Humane Society plans major expansion

first_imgLow-income people could get veterinary treatment for their pets in a proposed expansion of the Humane Society for Southwest Washington clinic, according to a plan outlined Thursday.A capital campaign seeks to raise $9.8 million for construction and endowments with a target of starting construction of the 12,000-square-foot project in early 2020, and finishing later that year. Already $3 million has been pledged by an anonymous Clark County resident. Project planning has been underway for about two years, said the nonprofit’s president, Stacey Graham, who announced the project Thursday at the society’s annual luncheon. The clinic, to be built onto the existing building in east Vancouver, would fill a growing need for pet care in the region, Graham told the audience.The clinic — which would charge a sliding fee scale with an average of $75 a visit — would allow approximately 4,300 animal to be treated a year. At the same time, the Humane Society plans to partner with 10 veterinary clinics in Clark, Cowlitz and Wahkiakum counties to handle 1,500 additional pet visits by low-income pet owners.last_img read more

File photochief election commissioner (CEC) KM Nurul Huda believes holding of the 11th parliamentary elections will not be any tough task despite discord among the commissioners of election commission (EC) in taking decisions.The chief election commissioner expressed his views while talking to newsmen at Nibachan Bhaban (election building) in the capital on Tuesday.Election commissioner Mahbub Talukdar issued a ‘note of dissent’ and boycotted an EC meeting once again on Monday.Around 10 minutes after the start of the commission’s 36th meeting with the CEC in the chair, Mahbub issued his ‘note of dissent’ and left the meeting room as, he said, his opinions on various issues were not evaluated at all.Nurul Huda, however, declined to comment on whether he breached the laws regarding the right to opinion by not allowing Mahbub Talukder to talk at the meeting.In the ‘note of dissent’, Mahbub Talukder wanted to discuss ways to deploy army personnel in polls, holding talks with political parties for participatory polls, increasing the EC’s capabilities, finding out ways to ensure equal opportunities for all parties competing in the polls and discussing with the government on recommendations that came from earlier talks, EC sources said.On 30 August, commissioner Mahbub Talukder boycotted another meeting of the commission issuing a ‘note of dissent’ on the use of electronic voting machine (EVM) in the 11th national elections.last_img read more

Professor proposes theory of unparticle physics

first_img This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Howard Georgi, a physicist at Harvard University, has recently published a paper on so-called unparticle physics, which suggests the existence of “unparticle stuff” that cannot be accounted for by the standard model. Appearing in a recent edition of Physical Review Letters, the paper says that unparticle stuff would be very different than anything seen before. “If all of the stuff that is scale-invariant couples to all the stuff that isn’t in a way that gets weaker and weaker as the energy gets lower, then it could be that, at the energies we can probe today, we just don’t see the unparticle stuff at all,” Georgi explained. “There could be a scale-invariant world separate from our own that is hidden from us at low energies because its interactions with us are so weak.”These particle interactions would appear to have missing energy and momentum distributions. Georgi has calculated the peculiar distributions of missing energy for the decay of a top quark, which would signify the production of unparticle stuff. “The very confusing question of ‘What does unparticle suff look like?’ gets replaced by a simpler question: ‘How does unparticle stuff begin to show up as the energy of our experiments is increased?’” he said.He explained that a good way of understanding unparticle stuff is with neutrinos. Neutrinos have some properties in common with unparticle stuff. For example, neutrinos are nearly massless and therefore nearly scale invariant. They couple very weakly to ordinary matter at low energies, and the effect of the coupling increases as the energy increases. “Very often, in a scattering experiment, we can infer the existence of neutrinos by adding up the energy and momentum of the colliding particles and subtracting the energy and momentum of all the particles we can see to get the energy and momentum of the ‘missing’ (which just means that we don’t see them because they escape our detectors without interacting) neutrinos,” he said. “By doing the scattering many times, we can measure a probability distribution for the missing energy and momentum. And by looking at the distribution, we can tell whether there is one or two or more neutrinos missing in the particular process we are studying. “An interesting result of my analysis is that such a distribution for a process that produces unparticles looks like the distribution for a fractional number of massless particles,” he added. “This is weird, but it follows very simply from the scale invariance of the unparticles. It is the first glimmer of an answer to the question of how unparticles begin to show up.”Because the signatures of unparticle stuff would be very distinct, LHC experiments have the potential to verify the existence of unparticle stuff immediately. Georgi says that, in his opinion, unparticle stuff would be a more striking discovery than supersymmetry or extra dimensions, both of which point to just more new particles. Unparticle stuff, on the other hand, would be a different concept altogether. “I, and a number of other researchers, am now trying to push these ideas harder,” Georgi said. “Other weird properties of unparticles have already emerged. I expect more. It is great fun. Of course, it would be even greater fun if we actually saw stuff like this at the LHC. But even if we don’t, I believe that analyses like this are useful because they can shake us out of preconceptions that could cause us to miss important physics as the energy of our machines grows.”Citation: Georgi, Howard. “Unparticle Physics.” Physical Review Letters 98, 221601 (2007).Copyright 2007 All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed in whole or part without the express written permission of Explore further Georgi, a highly regarded physicist well-known for his pioneering work in areas including supersymmetry, quantum chromodynamics, and grand unified theories, explains that the low-energy physics of nontrivial scale-invariance cannot be described in terms of particles. In this initial investigation of the idea, he gives a quantitative scenario of the production of unparticle stuff, and predicts how it could be experimentally detected in the upcoming Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the most powerful particle accelerator that will open in early 2008.In scale-invariant theory—where objects don’t change when their dimensional qualities are multiplied by a rescaling parameter—the concept of particles doesn’t work because most particles have a definite nonzero mass. In quantum mechanics, this isn’t a problem because the standard model does not have scale-invariance. But Georgi suggests that there could be an undiscovered sector of the standard model that is exactly scale-invariant.“I have been having a lot of fun with this,” Georgi told “It is a phenomenon that has been understood mathematically for a long time, in the sense that we know of theories that have the peculiar property of scale-invariance. It is hard to describe this because it is so different from what we are used to. For us it makes a big difference whether we measure masses in grams or kilograms. But in a scale-invariant world, it makes no difference at all.”Georgi explains that photons, which are particles of light, have the property of scale invariance because they have zero mass. Multiplying all the photon energies by a factor of 1000 would make them look exactly the same. “Clever theorists (like Ken Wilson) showed long ago that there were crazier possibilities which do not involve particles with zero mass, but still have the property that energies can be multiplied by any factor to give a physically equivalent theory,” Georgi said. “[But] this is impossible if there are particles with any definite nonzero mass. That is why I called this ‘unparticle’ stuff.”This scale-invariant sector would interact very weakly with the rest of the standard model, making it possible to observe evidence for unparticle stuff, if it exists. The unparticle theory is a high-energy theory that contains both standard model fields and “Banks-Zaks” fields (which has scale-invariance at an infrared point). The two fields can interact through the interactions of ordinary particles under high enough machine energy or a low enough mass scale. center_img Citation: Professor proposes theory of unparticle physics (2007, June 11) retrieved 18 August 2019 from Unparticles may provide a new path to superconductivity Unparticles, but not particles, can fit in a theory that has the property of continuous scale-invariance, which is difficult to visualize.

Gandhi redux

first_imgHaku Shah dedicates his latest exhibition Living Reliving Gandhi to his life-long icon, Mahatma Gandhi. With a blend of abstract and figurative paintings Shah’s work has the potential to portray the Gandhian era in correct form. He has been an active votary of Gandhi for all of his professional life. Shah says, “I paint with the passion and discipline of a true believer. Not a believer in any dogma or rigid religion, but in human endeavor, dignity and grace.” Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’In this age of contrived conceptualism Shah’s art may seem simple; bereft of the post-modernist impulse and devoid of multi-media contrivances. His painterly language is direct and expressionist in its application of paint and construction of form. Deftly handled paint applied in impasto by palette knives and spatula rather than brushes make his paintings probably close to the work of the many the craftsmen and potters he has studied so closely. This technique imparts an earthy immediacy to his forms and a rustic texture to his surfaces that suits his subject matter.  The line portrait of Gandhiji spinning the charkha in monochrome is so fluid as to seem alive with movement. The landscape depicting the Sabarmati Ashram with the river flowing between it and the burning ghats on the foreground is another engrossing work. The painting of an emerald green forest with the three mythical monkeys that stays in the mind’s eye for its wisdom, humour and lyricism is also on display. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixHaku Shah was a student of the Faculty of Fine Arts at the MS University.

Thunderbird powered by SoftMaker

first_imgThunderbird powered by SoftMaker by Martin Brinkmann on May 23, 2016 in Email – Last Update: May 25, 2016 – 20 commentsThunderbird, powered by SoftMaker, is a custom version of the popular email client featuring enhancements that come all in the form of extensions.Thunderbird 45 and 45.1 were released recently by the team of volunteers that kept and keeps Thunderbird alive ever since Mozilla decided to get rid of the Thunderbird project.This new version of the popular desktop email client was the first in a long time that featured a significant number of changes and fixes.SoftMaker, a company best known for its SoftMaker Office suite, announced recently that it plans to include the Thunderbird email client into the 2016 version of the office suite.In addition to that, it announced that it will provide the Thunderbird team with an experienced developer on a full-time basis to work on the email client and Lightning calendar.Thunderbird powered by SoftMakerThunderbird powered by Softmaker is core Thunderbird but with optional add-ons that users can install to enhance the email program in several ways.The following add-ons are provided currently:SoftMaker Theme: This is probably the least interesting of the add-ons. It changes the blakc and white icons on the toolbar with colored icons.SoftMaker Enhanced UI: Makes the Windows title bar and the menu bar visible, and moves the document tabs below the toolbar. Also, it adds new options to move emails and navigate email folders by adding new buttons and shortcuts to Thunderbird.Faster autocompletion of e-mail addresses: The fix improves auto-completion when large address books are used in Thunderbird. If you notice a delay of one or multiple seconds before recipient names are suggested to you after starting to type, you will benefit from this change.Software eM Client Importer: This add-on is only useful to users of Software Office and the eM Client it shipped with. It allows you to import email databases from those clients to Thunderbird.You can download each of the add-ons for Thunderbird separately from the official SoftMaker website.The approach leaves the core of Thunderbird untouched, and gives users options to install the add-ons they are interested in to improve the email client.It offers benefits to the developer as well, as it is usually easier to make changes to an add-on than to Thunderbird’s code directly.Existing Thunderbird users may be interested in the add-ons that SoftMaker has created. It needs to be noted that the extensions are not offered on the official Mozilla Thunderbird add-ons repository.They are provided as extension files that need to be installed manually in the client:Open the Thunderbird email client on your computer.Tap on the Alt-key if the menu bar is not displayed.Select Tools > Add-ons from the menu.Click on the gear icon in the upper right corner next to search, and select install add-on from file from the menu that opens.Select the extension file that you have downloaded to install it.A restart is always necessary after the installation of extensions.SummaryArticle NameThunderbird powered by SoftMakerDescriptionThunderbird powered by SoftMaker is a custom version of the popular desktop email program that users can enhance with add-ons made specifically for it.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
