Khaled Khateeb Syrian Oscar Nominee Denied US Entry

By Julia CabreraRabat – Syrian Cinematographer, Khaled Khateeb, was booked to travel to Los Angeles on Saturday to attend the Oscars award ceremony for his work on the film “White Helmets,” which went on to win the award for Best Documentary. The 21-year-old was revoked entry after officials found “derogatory information” about him.According to The Guardian, derogatory information is a broad category that may include anything ranging from “terror Connections to passport irregularities.” Gillian Christensen, the Acting Press Secretary for the Department of Homeland Security, told The Guardian, “A valid travel document is required for travel to the United States.”Citing a statement from the Trump administration, the Associated Press said that Homeland Security officials decided to stop Khateeb from flying to Los Angeles on the day of his scheduled flight.Khateeb was previously issued a visa to attend the ceremony, but according to the Guardian he needed a passport waiver to enter the country after having been detained in Turkey prior to the day of his flight. Internal US government correspondence obtained by the Guardian indicated that he would not be able to receive the waiver, but did not explain why he had been detained earlier in the week.“White Helmets” is a 40-minute Netflix original focusing on the White Helmet first response rescue workers in Syria, who risk their lives saving victims of the country’s civil war. Khateeb is one of three cinematographers credited in the film, which was directed by Orlando von Einsiedel and produced by Joanna Natasegara. read more

Experts publish research to help UN facilitate universal access to energy

The paper, entitled “Measuring Energy Access: Supporting a Global Target” and published by the Earth Institute at Columbia University, outlines a set of options and calls for establishing systematic measurement and reporting with regard to energy poverty.The UN Secretary-General’s Advisory Group on Energy and Climate Change (AGECC) has recommended that the international community strive to ensure universal access to energy by 2030.The Earth Institute’s paper discusses the associated benefits to assuring effective national policy-making as well as effective international cooperation on energy. It also urges the international community to play an active role in building capacity and providing resources to increase the quality and quantity of data on access to energy.It suggests that the UN is well placed to help take this work forward in partnership with the International Energy Agency (IEA), and other organizations. The UN’s inter-agency mechanism for energy, UN-Energy, is specifically designed to help coordinate cross-cutting issues, and would benefit from such a role, according to the paper. 7 June 2010United Nations officials and international experts have co-authored a research paper that outlines design tools which can be used in measuring access to sources of energy. read more

Mobile home parks become immigrants home away from home

AVON, Colo. — The Aspens Mobile Home Village sits on a wedge of land tucked between eastbound I-70 and the Eagle River in the mountains near Vail. The park is easy to miss in the blur of freeway speeds — trees, a fence, trailers flashing past before the blue sign for Exit 167 zooms into view, advertising Burger King and Subway and Fiesta Jalisco.The Aspens is unobtrusive, the way people who don’t live in mobile homes parks tend to prefer them, and in this it sets itself apart from the county’s largest park about 10 minutes down the road in Edwards. That park, Eagle River Village, has been in the news for its persistent, still unresolved poor water quality. Its row after row of weary, faded trailers rise from the river up the hillside toward the million-dollar plus homes and golf courses of Cordillera.The two parks are among 31 in Eagle County. These communities vary in size from tiny to sprawling — the county counts a total of 1,248 mobile homes — but nearly all are filled with people who work in the hospitality, service and construction industries. The mobile homes in them are, in a county where homes and rentals are notoriously pricey, an economic necessity. Low-wage workers who keep hotel rooms clean and golf courses tended in tourism-dependent mountain towns must live somewhere nearby and relatively affordable.Aspens Mobile Home Village has 159 spots for trailers, 158 of which are occupied. The park is nearly 50 years old, but well-maintained, its trailers new and refurbished with pitched roofs and siding and its playground teeming with the children and grandchildren of housekeepers, painters, framers, roofers, gardeners, landscapers, fast-food cooks, cashiers and nannies. Flowerbeds and pots burst with late-summer blossoms.As in other mobile home parks, the residents own the trailers and rent the lot spaces, which, here, run around $1,100 a month. This does not include gas, electric or cable. The manager is Agustina Del Hoyo, who since 2008 somehow has navigated the line between enforcer and mother hen. She says she is not certain how many people actually live in the Aspens, but one night she did go through and count 525 vehicles.“We have people here from all over, from Russia, from Bulgaria, from Jamaica, from Honduras, we have Vietnamese, but about 75 per cent are Latino,” she says.Most are immigrants. As in many immigrant communities, some arrived legally and some didn’t. To the residents’ own surprise, a few years here suddenly became 12, 15, 20 years. The Aspens is home, the mothers here will tell you, even if some part of their hearts insists that it is not, not really, because home is the place of their childhoods, the place where their parents still live or are buried. Home is what they have built or are building in Aguascalientes or Chihuahua or Guerrero with the money they’ve sent back, the houses waiting there, paid for by all the beds changed and carpets vacuumed and drywall installed here.But during their many years in Avon, residents have married and their children were born or grew up here. Families have remodeled their trailers, adding more windows, new porches, floors of wood and tile, countertops of granite and Corian. When one of the mothers suggests to her family that maybe they should just look at buying a house — it’d been almost 20 years since they moved from Mexico — her two daughters protested and cried, she says. This is the only home they have known.“I live with my heart divided,” says another mother, who has lived in Avon for nearly 22 years, the last five of those in the Aspens. She crossed the border illegally, leaving behind her parents, most of her siblings, her nieces and nephews, “the people I love,” in a village in Aguascalientes. She has spent almost half her life in this pretty mountain town, but says that once she and her husband have finished repairing their trailer here, they will finish building a home in Mexico, too. Maybe one day they will return. Maybe they will not.In this place, among many of these residents, a trailer is more than a home, it is a metaphor for their lives as immigrants, a place of temporary permanence, fixed but not rooted.___A NEW RHYTHMThe days in the Aspens village begin with bedroom lights spilling into predawn darkness. Construction and landscaping workers head out in a caravan of cars and trucks to put in as many hours as they can now, before the snow falls. If summer is their time, winter belongs to the housekeepers, the hospitality workers who ramp up their hours during ski season. The women leave for work in waves to the hotels, to the hospital, and to the houses to which they bring order for $11 to $17 an hour. Morning in the Aspens carries the voices of its children heading out in clumps of backpacks, hoodies and lunch bags, past the hollyhocks and sunflowers, past the oldtimers watching from their porches, to the elementary school across the street and the bus stop at the park’s entrance. In the evening, the tide reverses itself, and the air, they say, carries the smells of their suppers: onions, beef, tortillas.Five months ago, a new rhythm began in the park. On Thursday nights, women started gathering for what Del Hoyo, the manager, calls Entre Mujeres (Between Women). She organized the group because too often the women who came to her office to pay rent ended up sitting across from her, pouring out their hearts about their work, their kids and marriages, their homesickness and longing for mothers, sisters and friends. A mobile home park leaves little room for privacy, but lack of privacy is no hedge against loneliness or isolation. Living right next to someone does not by default make them a neighbour.Del Hoyo, the daughter of Mexican immigrants, felt a connection with these women. She, too, had left a family behind in California. She, too, understands the enormous amount of faith and fortitude it takes to leave the familiar for the unknown.“Every day, 24 hours, these ladies are working. They are working their jobs, working at home, so they need one hour a week to be a woman,” Del Hoyo says, punctuating the air with her finger when she says “a woman.” ”This time is for them, only themselves. They need help. They need support. I say to them, ‘When you talk to one friend, it is like medicine. With all of us together, it is like a pharmacy.’”Nothing beats a trailer park for word-of-mouth. A strange car drives through too slowly and someone is calling Agustina. A state wildlife officer shows up nearby at the report of a bear, and someone calls Agustina. Doors generally stay closed to strangers. So, at first, it was only a few women who’d show up for the group, but in time the numbers have grown, and on a recent Thursday about two dozen women bearing baked chicken, pasta, watermelon, tamales, fry bread, salads and sweets gathered in the community space adjacent to the office.It is not easy to let themselves be vulnerable, but they share their worries and most are those of working mothers everywhere: how their children are doing in school, problems at work, bills, sick parents, a lack of health insurance, fatigue. “Every day of my life is a sacrifice,” one woman says to the group, and the others nod.But there is another layer of vulnerability here: To live in the U.S. without papers is to live with ongoing uncertainty and the ever-present thrum of anxiety. They say it is much worse now that Trump is president. So, they talk about that, too, about carrying their fear, about trying not to think about it, and about whether and how they should prepare their children for a day they might not come home. “La migra can pick me up anywhere,” says the mother with the divided heart. “I could be at home, at school, at work, at the store.”Though fear weighs on them, they say they are grateful for their lives here, for the work, for the better pay, for the schools and the parks and a belief that this is a much safer place than back home. “I will go home if Trump sends me back, but I hope he doesn’t,” says a mother from Aguascalientes who came on a work visa and then overstayed. “There is no work there. No hay nada.”This is how it goes in the women’s group: they talk, they laugh, they cry, they eat, they laugh some more, they get to know one another, they walk back home. Their husbands want to know how it went. Through the week, they send texts to the group, checking up on each other, or just checking in. Good morning, they write. Good night, they write. This is one way a mobile home park becomes a community.___CONNECTED BUT NOT ATTACHEDThere is a woman living in the Aspens who comes from Mexico City. She had two years of college and was working as a school administrator, evaluating teachers, she says, when she fell in love with her future husband, a landscaper who migrated back and forth to the U.S. every summer. Her father did not approve. “That’s a crazy life” he told her. Her father raised all three of his kids after their mother died. “I will be your mother and your father now,” she remembers him saying. “You will have to be strong,” he told her. She was eight years old.She left for the U.S. with her soon-to-be husband. She left without telling her father she was leaving and crossed the border illegally in 2001. Two days and one night walking through the desert, she says. Then a safe house in Tucson. She phoned her father from there. He told her she was dead to him and not to call him again. Her soon-to-be-husband told her that she needed to forget the life she had in Mexico. That was over.The woman found a job at a local Avon business. She and her husband had two children. The couple arranged their work lives so they wouldn’t have to hire a babysitter. We will each work only one job, she told her husband. We will not share our home with cousins or friends. This was the unspoken bargain in trying to forget Mexico: If we are going to live here, she told her husband, we are going to have a life here.When they moved into the Aspens six years ago, they gutted the empty trailer that occupied the spot. It was in bad shape; like a lot of mobile homes in old trailer parks, the “mobile” part was largely fiction. And so the couple lay hard-wood floors and installed beautiful wood cabinetry and gleaming counters and appliances. They hung a flat screen TV on a wall of wood mosaic and a picture of Jesus above the kitchen table. On the rare mornings when she has the house to herself, the woman sits at the end of the table where she can see the mountains through the window above the kitchen sink.Her father gave up his anger after one year and then he and his second wife and their three young children — their youngest was 4 — crossed the desert, too. That was 15 years ago. Her father, like so many immigrants she says she knows, took two jobs, worked all the time, saved money. “So, he made his houses back in Mexico, and he made his tax payments there, but he didn’t make a life.”This will not happen to her, she says, and she is coming to the realization that for the 18 years she has lived as wife and mother and employee, “the sad part is that I forgot about myself.”So, she is now volunteering for different organizations, and going to the Mujeres meetings with other women straddling the same in-betweenness of being not quite homeowners, yet not quite renters, and the same neither-here-nor-thereness of no longer living in their old countries, but not fully in the new. The woman walks a line between connecting with this new place without becoming too attached. Her family, too, has a house in Mexico, and if one day it all goes poof here, well, she says, “we came into this world without houses and we will leave it without them.”“I do not want to live thinking about what might happen,” she says. “I want the life in front of me.”Tina Griego, The Associated Press read more

Events are that Justice Franklin Holder is now required to recuse himself from the matter before him. This directive came from the second highest official of this country from the Prime Minister himself. And to add insult to injury the very same Contemptuous Williams whom the contempt matter has been drawn up against, he is the one directed to deliver the message to Justice Holder.  Incredible! Instead of punishing the perpetrator of such a heinous act the Prime Minister has strengthened the hands of the law breaker.Lawlessness has reached epic proportions in this two-year-old Coalition Government and from all indications the worst is yet to come. To think of it when someone who is supposed to be  the “Guardian and Protector of the law’ could with such ease threaten a judge and be let off the hook like that, tells you the depths to which the state has sunken. Williams in the final analysis was just given a slap on the wrist, like we commonly say”naughty boy”  as if nothing happened. I am still dumbfounded at this latest development.And lest I forget, The Attorney General has been further equipped with five paid advisors four of whom are judges. If this is not crass backwardness and flagrant disregard for (according to them) our scarce resources. If this is not what it is then what is?Frankly speaking, the message this Coalition Government is promoting is we can do “practically anything illegal”  and nothing can be done about it. They in their belligerent, spiteful authoritarian self are shouting this fact from the rooftops.So where are the so called voices of reason like the ABC Countries? What is their take on these latest developments? Are they stunned into silence that no dissenting voice is heard? I remember at the height of their propaganda campaign to get the PPP/C out of office the US Led forces brought on the LEAD  Programme to dictate to the PPP/C the rudiments of “good governance. So I ask the question, where are they now? Have they lost their sense of reason? I rest my case.Guyana is being governed by a bunch of lawless dictators and I challenge anyone to prove me wrong.Respectfully submitted,Neil  Adams read more

Chance the Snapper Alligator Is Captured in Chicago Park Lagoon

first_imgLast week, the alligator, which was nicknamed “Chance the Snapper,” was caught lurking around the lagoon by multiple witnesses, CNN reported. People speculated if the gator sighting was real or a hoax, considering alligators are not native to Illinois. Even though they called Robb for assistance, authorities still had trouble finding the creature and they had to partially close the park until it was safely extracted from the area.“The alligator had captured the imaginations of the city and beyond and has united residents who have been following this story for the last week,” Chicago Animal Care and Control said in a Facebook post. “The City’s top priority all along has been to keep residents and park visitors safe while facilitating the humane capture of the alligator.” More on Geek.com:Sneaky 4-Foot Alligator Caught Swimming in Chicago Park LagoonTenn.

Nicaraguan student protesters freed from church

first_imgRelatives embrace an university student who was freed after being trapped overnight in Divine Mercy Catholic Church where they took shelter as pro-government gunmen shot at them at the National Autonomous University of Nicaragua (UNAN), in Managua, Nicaragua on 14 July 2018. Photo: ReutersCatholic bishops on Saturday secured the release of dozens of Nicaraguan student protesters trapped overnight inside in a church under a hail of gunfire from armed pro-government supporters, who killed at least one person inside, a human rights group said.The students took refuge inside the Divine Mercy Catholic Church on Friday after gunmen loyal to president Daniel Ortega began shooting at them at the National Autonomous University of Nicaragua (UNAN) in Managua, prompting fresh criticism of the violent crackdown against opposition to his rule.Paulo Abrao of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights said on Twitter that at least one youth had died in the church and three people were injured. The mother of a woman who spent the night in the church told Reuters that one student had died.Some local media reported that two people had died.Reuters could not independently verify the deaths.Nearly three months of clashes between pro-Ortega forces and demonstrators calling for his ouster have claimed almost 300 lives, in the bloodiest protests in Nicaragua since the country’s civil war ended in 1990.The mother who reported a death said the students spent the night crouched on the church floor fearing for their lives as the gunmen fired shots that ricocheted inside the church.”They have no qualms with shooting and killing anybody. … This morning a young man died inside the church,” said the mother, Socorro. She requested not to give her last name for fear of reprisals.A delegation of Nicaragua’s Catholic bishops negotiated the transfer of the students to Managua’s metropolitan cathedral, where they were receiving medical care.The government could not immediately be reached for comment.Sending the students home could expose them to more attacks, said Gonzalo Carrion of Nicaragua’s Centre for Human Rights.”As well as trying to shoot and kill the students, when they don’t kill them, they are beaten up and charged with committing horrific crimes,” Carrion said.Francisco Palmieri, the US principal deputy assistant secretary of state for Western Hemisphere affairs, on Twitter condemned what he called attacks by pro-government forces against the UNAN students.”This violence to intimidate and repress the people must cease immediately,” he said.Republican Senator Marco Rubio tweeted on Friday night that if US staff or their families were harmed, Ortega would “personally face severe repercussions.”Nicaragua has been convulsed by unrest since April, when Ortega, a former Marxist guerrilla leader, proposed reducing pension benefits to ease budgetary pressures.Though the plan was later dropped, it provoked violent clashes and calls for Ortega to step down.A nationwide strike emptied streets on Friday as businesses shut their doors, heeding calls by civil society groups who want Ortega to resign and stage early elections.last_img read more

Girls Want — And Need — More Female Superheroes

Or a tall, strong, billowing-haired Amazon woman with bullet-deflecting jewelry and a magic lasso?(If you said Spider-Man, stop reading this and just go away.)While Wonder Woman, Black Panther, Jessica Jones, and Supergirl are paving the way for better hero diversity, girls still lack on-screen female role models, according to research.A new study by BBC America and the Women’s Media Center confirms that representation can positively affect a child’s confidence, career trajectory, and overall self-image.In on an online survey administered over the summer, more than 2,400 participants — girls and boys ages 5 to 19 — expressed a desire for more female and non-white champions in the sci-fi and superhero genre.(via BBC America & Women’s Media Center)“If you can’t see her, you can’t be her,” BBC America President Sarah Barnett said in a statement.“It’s time to expand what gets seen, and we hope this report will contribute to sparking change in the stories we see on screen,” she continued. “With greater representation of female heroes in the sci-fi and superhero genre, we can help superpower the next generation of women.”This study was released three days before the sixth annual International Day of the Girl (Oct. 11), aimed at raising awareness of issues like education, nutrition, and child marriage, as well as legal and medical rights.(via BBC America & Women’s Media Center)The data speaks for itself: Teen girls are significantly less likely than their male counterparts to describe themselves as confident, brave, and heard. These challenges are considerably more pronounced for girls of color.“At this time of enormous, sweeping, social change, it’s important that television and film provide an abundance of roles and role models for diverse girls and young women,” Julie Burton, president of the Women’s Media Center, said.BBC America also reported a 23-point gender gap between teen boys and girls interested in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers.(via BBC America & Women’s Media Center)“We know that representation matters, as evidenced by this report,” Burton added. “Our research found that female sci-fi and superhero characters help bridge the confidence gap for girls, making them feel strong, brave, confident, inspired, positive, and motivated.”This alliance with Women’s Media Center is part of BBC America’s recent “Galaxy of Women” initiative, which spotlights ladies across the network—from Orphan Black‘s sestras to Killing Eve‘s assassin and spy to Doctor Who‘s pioneering first female Doctor.Look closely and you can find a network of women—factual and fictional—kicking ass and taking names.
