No plans to eliminate duty to report for military sex misconduct Vance

first_imgOTTAWA — The head of the Canadian Forces says they want to better support victims of military sexual misconduct after gaps were identified by the auditor general last fall.But Gen. Jonathan Vance says he does not plan to get rid of a regulation that compels military personnel to report inappropriate or criminal behaviour, regardless who the victim is.Auditor general Michael Ferguson found in November that the “duty to report” requirement actually discouraged some victims from coming forward because telling anyone about an incident automatically triggers a formal complaint process.Vance says the military is looking at ways to ensure victims continue to feel supported and empowered and that they have choices when they or someone else reports misconduct.While that is more difficult with sexual-assault cases, where the police are in charge, Vance says the military needs to keep the duty to report because it can’t turn a blind eye to inappropriate or criminal behaviour.Military commanders have vowed to fight sexual misconduct in the ranks since media reports and a retired Supreme Court justice flagged the issue as a serious concern nearly five years ago.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

China demands Canada release Huawei executive arrested in Vancouver

first_imgMulroney said Canada should be prepared for “sustained fury” from the Chinese and said it will be portrayed in China as Canada kowtowing to Trump. He also said the Iran allegations are very damaging to Huawei and said China will push back hard.U.S. Sen. Ben Sasse, a Republican member of the Senate armed services and banking committees, applauded Canada for the arrest.“Americans are grateful that our Canadian partners have arrested the chief financial officer of a giant Chinese telecom company for (allegedly) breaking U.S. sanctions against Iran,” he said.Meng is a prominent member of Chinese society as deputy chairwoman of the Huawei board and the daughter of company founder Ren Zhengfei.Asian shares skid as Huawei CFO arrest revives trade jittersAsian stock markets skidded on the news of Meng’s arrest, fearing renewed U.S.-Chinese tensions that threaten global economic growth.Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index tumbled 2.7 per cent to 26,081.73 and Japan’s benchmark Nikkei 225 fell 2.5 per cent to 21,373.83.Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 lost 0.2 per cent to 5,657.60, while South Korea’s Kospi sank 1.6 per cent to 2,068.56.The Shanghai Composite index dropped 1.7 per cent to 2,6043.91.

Supreme Court said Meng appeared in court Wednesday and a bail hearing is scheduled for Friday.Canadian Justice Department spokesman Ian McLeod said the U.S. is seeking Meng’s extradition, but couldn’t provide further details about the case because a publication ban is in effect at Meng’s request.A profile of Huawei’s chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou is displayed on a Huawei computer at a Huawei store in Beijing, China, Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018.

Under U.S. President Donald Trump and his predecessor, Barack Obama, Washington has pressured European countries and other allies to limit the use of its technology.The U.S. sees Huawei and smaller Chinese tech suppliers as possible fronts for Chinese spying and as commercial competitors. The Trump administration says they benefit from improper subsidies and market barriers.David Mulroney, a former Canadian ambassador to China, said U.S. and Canadian business executives could face reprisals in China.“That’s something we should be watching out for. It’s a possibility. China plays rough,” Mulroney told The Associated Press. “It’s a prominent member of their society and it’s a company that really embodies China’s quest for global recognition as a technology power.”Related video: Huawei CFO arrested at YVRlast_img read more

Requests for removal from UN sanctions list will receive fair hearing –

Kimberly Prost, the Ombudsperson for the so-called 1267 committee, said the objective of her position is to provide individuals, organizations and entities affected by the sanctions regime “with an avenue for recourse in order to provide fundamental fairness to the process and for the overall efficiency, effectiveness and enforceability of the sanctions regime. “My aim is to turn that objective into a reality over the coming weeks and months,” she told her first news conference at United Nations Headquarters in New York. Ms. Prost, who most recently served as a judge with the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), was appointed last month by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to assist the 1267 committee as it considers requests from individuals and entities seeking removal from the committee’s Consolidated List. Individuals on the list are subject to the assets freeze, travel ban and arms embargo imposed under Council resolution 1267 of 1999, and related resolutions, by which all UN Member States are required to impose sanctions on Osama bin Laden, the Taliban and those associated with them.Petitioners seeking de-listing can now present their case to the Ombudsperson, who, after a period of information gathering and dialogue with the petitioner and relevant States, will present a comprehensive report to the Committee laying out the arguments concerning the de-listing request, having analyzed all the available information. This is in line with the mandate given to the Ombudsperson by the Security Council in resolution 1904, which created the position. “Thanks to resolution 1904, for the first time, petitioners seeking a de-listing can do this with the support of an impartial and independent institution – that is the Ombudsperson,” said Ambassador Thomas Mayr-Harting of Austria, who serves as Chairman of the 1267 Committee. He noted that Ms. Prost – who brings to her new post experience in international law, human rights and counter-terrorism, having worked in the department of justice in Canada and with the legal advisory section of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) – is “perfectly suited” for her position and that her appointment comes at a “sensitive point” in the review of the list. Ms. Prost said there is a lot of work to be done to make the office of the Ombudsperson a reality. “It is already evident to me from reviewing the resolution which created it, as well as the historical resolutions leading up to it, that there are two attributes the office must have to be successful and effective, and that is independence and accessibility,” she stated. 15 July 2010The official tasked with helping to decide which names of individuals or entities to remove from the list of those subject to Security Council sanctions measures against Al-Qaida and the Taliban said today that petitioners can be assured of receiving a fair and effective hearing of their cases. read more

Wind Mobile considering a bid for Mobilicity under courtsupervised sale

Wind Mobile considering a bid for Mobilicity under court-supervised sale by LuAnn LaSalle, The Canadian Press Posted Dec 3, 2013 7:34 am MDT TORONTO, Cananda – The parent company of wireless startup Wind Mobile is taking another look at buying Mobilicity, a small rival that is operating under court protection from creditors.Wind Mobile CEO Anthony Lacavera said Tuesday that Globalive Wireless Management Corp. has applied to bid in the court-monitored sale of Mobilicity.The deadline to submit bids for Mobilicity is Dec. 9.“We threw our name in the process,” Lacavera said in an interview from Toronto. “We applied and hopefully the court will accept us as a qualified bidder.”But Lacavera said it’s not definitive that Wind will bid and wouldn’t comment on the possible value of Mobilicity, which provides cellphone service to about 190,000 customers in Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver.However, Lacavera has said more than once recently that he would like to buy Mobilicity and believes the two companies would be stronger if they merged to compete against Rogers (TSX:RCI.B), Bell (TSX:BCE) and Telus (TSX:T).“I have maintained the position since 2008 that we need to work together with other new entrants. This is just an another opportunity to try to put something together,” he said. “We feel we’re a very logical bidder.”Canaccord Genuity analyst Dvai Ghose downplayed a potential bid by Wind Mobile.He said Wind Mobile’s owner, Russian telecom VimpelCom, has made it clear that it wants a “clean exit” from Canada. VimpelCom put its 65 per cent ownership stake in Wind up for sale some months ago and Lacavera owns the remaining stake in the company he founded.“While Industry Canada may want a successful Wind bid for Mobilicity, we cannot take such a potential bid seriously,” Ghose wrote in a research note.“We do not see any other realistic sources of financing for Wind when it comes to acquiring Mobilicity or 700 megahertz (spectrum) purchases, especially as Wind seems to have been less than successful to date.”Wind has only 637,000 subscribers, despite publicly stating it targeted 1.5 million at the end of three years, he said. Wind launched in December 2009.But Ghose said if Wind does end up buying Mobilicity, he wonders if it would be a more effective competitor given its “consistent disappointments” to date.“Either way, we believe that the incumbents remain well positioned and that Wind and Industry Canada have failed in their objectives.”Wind and Mobilicity were among new Canadian wireless carriers that emerged a few years ago to give consumers more competition.Lacavera said Wind Mobile needs more spectrum — radio waves needed to operate wireless communications networks — to offer faster, next-generation services to compete with the big three telcos.The federal government has blocked Telus twice from buying Mobilicity, which has spectrum that was specifically set aside for startup companies in a federal auction in 2008. But Telus was recently permitted by Ottawa to buy startup Public Mobile because its spectrum is considered less valuable and didn’t have any sale restrictions.Mobilicity has been operating under court protection from its creditors since September. The struggling carrier has said in court documents that it has a number of parties interested in some, or all, of its assets.According to the court documents, Mobilicity has been seeking a buyer since July 2012. The documents say it has pursued a variety of financing, sale and restructuring options, including a sale to Telus and had an “expression of interest” from U.S.-based Verizon.

DR Congo UN envoy calls on political stakeholders to show flexibility to

Wrapping up a visit to Africa’s Great Lakes region, a United Nations envoy today urged stakeholders in the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s (DRC) electoral process to do more to help ensure the country is able to hold peaceful elections.“The Democratic Republic of the Congo is at an important turning point in its political history – I call on all parties to demonstrate flexibility and readiness for compromise to create propitious conditions for peaceful and credible elections,” the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for the Great Lakes region, Said Djinnit, said today, according to a news release from his office.The envoy’s comments came at the end of a four-day trip to the DRC’s capital, Kinshasa. According to his office, the aim of the visit was to consult with a wide range of national stakeholders on the electoral process and related political issues and seek their views on how best to support the ongoing mediation efforts led by the Conference Episcopale Nationale du Congo (CENCO), which, it said, are aimed at broadening the consensus on, and inclusivity of the electoral and political process building on the so-called Global Political Agreement reached on 18 October. Last month, the DRC’s Constitutional Court granted a petition of the National Electoral Commission to postpone the elections to 2018. Meanwhile, on 18 October, participants in a national dialogue on elections signed an agreement to conduct the polls in April 2018 – however, the dialogue is being boycotted by several of the main opposition groups, some of which have been staging protests.According to the news release, accompanied by senior officials from the UN Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO), Mr. Djinnit held “fruitful” meetings with the Acting Secretary-General of CENCO, the representatives of the Presidential Majority, the opposition coalition of political parties known as the Rassemblement, as well as several individual political leaders. The UN envoy also paid a courtesy call on Prime Minister-designate Samy Badibanga.The news release also noted that in his meetings, Mr. Djinnit expressed support for the ongoing mediation efforts by CENCO, and encouraged representatives from the government and the Rassemblement to exercise restraint and take additional confidence-building measures to help create the enabling environment for successful and peaceful negotiations.While in the region, the Special Envoy also visited the Republic of Congo, where he met with President Denis Sassou Nguesso in the country’s capital, Brazzaville. They discussed the preparation of the next meeting of the Regional Oversight Mechanism of the Framework for Peace, Security and Cooperation, which will be held in October 2017, as well as the need for promoting common ground between the electoral stakeholders in the DRC and the situation in Burundi. read more

Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli made another tactical blunder against Bangladesh

first_imgRavi Shastri and Virat Kohli haven’t always been good with team selectionReutersNow that India have won their match against Bangladesh in the ICC 2019 Cricket World Cup and have qualified for the semi-finals, there are going to be very few complaints from Indian fans. But in the celebration of victory, a major tactical blunder made by the Indian team management has been overlooked.The decision to drop Kuldeep Yadav and bring in Bhuvneshwar Kumar was questioned and criticised by Sourav Ganguly and defended by Sanjay Manjrekar. The argument presented by captain Virat Kohli and seconded by Manjrekar was the small distance of boundary on one side of the wicket. It was surmised that if spin bowlers bowl in tandem, one of them would be very vulnerable to getting hit to that boundary easily.However, as Ganguly argued, the success of Shakib Al-Hasan in the match and the fact that he was hardly hit towards the short boundary proves that the distance of the boundaries shouldn’t always dictate whether you pick a spinner or not. The fact is that Kuldeep has shown himself to be a high-quality tweaker who has bowled some of the best spells from the Indian side in this tournament. Short boundaries shouldn’t deter India from playing him. Kuldeep has been brilliant in the World Cup but was still droppedStu Forster/Getty ImagesOn top of that, the constant use of slower balls from pacers showed the unique nature of the wicket and how much the ball was gripping. A spinner, especially the quality of Yadav, may well have made things very difficult. The tactic of playing three seamers didn’t quite work as Mohammad Shami proved to be expensive and unreliable in death overs. However, after picking up five wickets in the last game, it was nearly impossible to drop him and the man brought to replace Kuldeep, Bhuvneshwar proved to be very competent. But the Chinaman bowler may have proved equally effective.This is not the first time that a wrong selection has been made by the duo of Shastri and Kohli. Keeping Ajinkya Rahane out of the first two Tests in South Africa, bringing Kuldeep into the team on a non-responsive pitch during the series in England are the prime examples of earlier selection blunders. With one match to go before the semi-final for India, the Indian team cannot afford any more risk-taking with the selection of the team.It’s very likely that Kuldeep would be back in the team for the last match of the league round against Sri Lanka and Shami would sit out. It’s unlucky for the latter but with so many good bowlers around, there is always going to be one person who is unlucky.last_img read more

If you are going through pain and dont laugh you die so

first_imgKolkata: Versatile actor-cum-screenwriter Saurabh Shukla, best known for playing Justice Sunderlal Tripathi in the “Jonny LLB” movies, says the current political situation is funny and one just needs to laugh in times of hardships. Shukla feels even in a politically-charged situation comedy has a role to play and he suggests that people laugh. “Nothing is more funny than the political situation at this moment,” the actor, who immortalised Kallu mama in “Satya” and Tapasvi Maharaj in “PK”, told IANS during a visit to the city. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata Bose Explaining how comedy can help in sending political messages, the National-Award winning actor said “anything said with a tinge of humour is received well” and there is humour in everything. Asked about the controversy surrounding Naseeruddin Shah’s comment that he feared for his children in today’s India, Shukla remarked: “Isn’t it humorous? It is highly humorous.” In an interview in December, 2018, Shah had raised concerns about the safety of his children, making an indirect reference to the Bulandshahr violence earlier that month that left two people, including a police inspector, dead. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: Mamata Shukla remains optimistically unperturbed. He mentions Osho’s book “Take it Really Seriously: Revolutionary Insight into Jokes”, a collection of 5,000 jokes from around the world. “In its preface, the author said the maximum number of jokes were created by the Jews as they went through so much that they needed to laugh. So, if you are going through pain and you don’t laugh you die. So laugh,” the master of comedy suggested. Shukla’s recent stage production “Barff”, published as a book, is about three characters in Kashmir. “Because it is about Kashmir, everyone expects that it will talk about the politics there. But it doesn’t. Subtly it is there because you are never free from the politics of the land. But it does not talk right in your face,” he said. His mother, Jogmaya Shukla, was one of India’s first woman tabla players and his father was a vocalist. “I was very attracted towards music. I also sing, but not professionally. Even my little knowledge of music helped me a lot in my other art. When I joined the theatre it became my strength. So I tell people, to become a complete artist you should have a sense of everything — be it music, painting or sculpture,” he said. According to Shukla, “Screenplay, acting and everything else go hand-in-hand.” “If I have any advice for the actors, I tell them to write,” the award-winning screenwriter said. Shukla who started with theatre and is known for films like “Bandit Queen”, “Slumdog Millionaire’ and “Barfi”, explained that by writing he doesn’t mean writing like a professional. Actors need to imagine and writing is the best way to express it. His upcoming films are “Family of Thakurganj”, Anees Bazmi’s “Pagalpanti” and “Shamshera”. “Shamshera is an epic, so the character will be epical but there will be a tinge of humour in it,” he added.last_img read more

Apparently You Can Become Addicted to Google Glass

first_imgOctober 15, 2014 Doctors in San Diego have documented what they describe as the first reported case of “Internet addiction disorder” involving the overuse of Glass. The patient was a 31-year-old enlisted service member who checked in to the U.S. Navy’s Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Program (SARP) this summer for treatment of alcoholism. He was exhibiting withdrawal symptoms that doctors initially thought were solely related to alcohol. But it turned out he was having a hard time functioning also because of his withdrawal from Google Glass.The man had been wearing Glass for up to 18 hours a day, using it fastidiously at work and taking it off when he went to sleep or bathed, said Dr. Andrew Doan, head of addictions and resilience research at Naval Medical Center San Diego and a co-author of a paper published in the journal Addictive Behaviors describing the case.The man told his treatment providers that the withdrawal symptoms from Glass were “much worse” than withdrawing from alcohol, Doan told NBC News.Moreover, “when the therapist would ask him a question, he would have this repeated movement of placing his index finger to the right side of face, similar to trying to turn on the Glass,” Doan said. The man even began experiencing his dreams as if they were viewed through the eyeglass-like smart headset.The patient successfully completed the 35-day residential treatment program and is experiencing fewer withdrawal symptoms, Doan said. He is now following up with outpatient treatment. Google did not immediately respond to a request from NBC News or comment on the case.Though “Internet addiction” isn’t included in the American Psychiatric Association’s latest version of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Doan insists it’s a real malady. He expects to see more cases of behavioral disorders linked to technology as connected gadgets proliferate. One disorder to be on the lookout for, he said, is “nomophobia” — short for “no-mobile-phone” phobia — or the fear of being out of mobile phone contact.

original version of this story misidentified one subject of the primary image above He is Brad Carter not Ben Robson Write to Eliana Dockterman at elianadockterman@timecomEarly in Atomic Blonde Charlize Theron slowly stands up from an ice bath Her back emerges sinewy and covered in myriad dark purple bruises When she looks in the mirror a badly blackened eye stares back This is not a woman to be crossed Theron plays Lorraine Broughton an MI6 agent sent on a treacherous mission to Berlin in 1989 five days before the Wall falls The movie is a neon spree through underground parties and glittering speakeasies backed by thumping 80s pop music Lorraine based on a character from the graphic novel The Coldest City isnt like most female heroes: shes not a grieving widow shes not a protective mother and she definitely doesnt have daddy issues "Writers are always giving women dead husbands or kids to make you emotionally invest" says Theron over tea at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles this June The 41-year-old actor is still wearing athletic gear from a workout with her trainer for the movie though filming has long wrapped "Men go on a fun journey Women get a long backstory so youre already forgiving them for what theyre about to do" MORE: Review: Atomic Blonde Kicks You Where It Hurts Not Lorraine She does everything the men always haveexchanging blows and bulletsexcept backward and in heels Until she slips off one of those heels and wields it as a weapon This isnt Therons first time playing an unapologetic brawler The Oscar winner has been a prostitute turned serial killer a failing and bitter author Snow Whites black-hearted tormentor and a one-armed road warrior "I play effed-up vulnerable women who have to be strong in order to survive" says Theron Atomic Blonde out July 28 comes at a turning point for women-led action films In June Wonder Woman shattered outdated notions that audiences dont want to watch women kick butt Its currently the highest-grossing movie of the summer bringing in $389 million in the US People want to see female action heroes The question that matters now is how quickly Hollywood will allow them to go dark After all male action heroes have run the gamut from basically good (Indiana Jones) to explicitly bad (Dirty Harry) for decades Wonder Woman is the former a near perfect goddess who strives to always do whats morally right Therons Lorraine is anything but (Story continues below) Charlize Theron photographed at the Universal Lot in Los Angeles on June 8 2017 Amanda Demme for TIME Theron grew up on a farm in South Africa Her father struggled with alcohol and was abusive When Theron was 15 her mother Gerta shot and killed him in self-defense But Therons mother taught her not to wallow in self-pity "Im not the first person and wont be the last person to go through something traumatic" she explained on her friend Aisha Tylers podcast Girl on Guy last year By the time she was 17 Theron had moved to America to study at the Joffrey Ballet School in New York When a series of injuries left her unable to dance she began to pursue acting Casting directors pegged her for the ingenue: her character in Woody Allens 1998 Celebrity was actually named "Supermodel" Therons big break came in 2003 after Patty Jenkins who also directed Wonder Woman cast her in Monster as a prostitute who avenges her rape by murdering her clients Theron won an Oscar for the role the characters toughness mirroring her own "Shes a real-life badass" says Jenkins "And she can do whatever she wants on film" Adds Keanu Reeves who co-starred with her in The Devils Advocate (1997) and was her sparring partner as she prepared for Atomic Blonde "She brings brutal grace to her characters" Still her first major foray into the action genre 2005s Aeon Flux was a flop Hollywood took that films failurealong with Catwoman and Elektra which also bombed around the same timeas a sign women couldnt headline a profitable action flick "We get screwed because one movie doesnt work" says Theron "I experienced that with Aeon Flux" She admits the film was flawed but then "It was like Your chance is up" A decade later Theron starred in Mad Max: Fury Road part of a wave of filmsincluding the Hunger Games series and Star Wars: The Force Awakensthat definitively proved the opposite That movie was marketed as a testosterone-fueled car chase across a post-apocalyptic wasteland But anyone who saw it quickly realized the story actually belongs to Furiosa the one-armed rebel Theron played to stoic perfection Sure Max (Tom Hardy) was in the car but it was Furiosas mission to smuggle a group of sex slaves to an all-female paradise that captured audiences and turned the film into a $378 million box-office smash "It took me years to find the skin that I would be comfortable in to play this woman" she says "I had such a sense of relief when we realized she needed to be in a T-shirt not a Barbarella outfit and I needed to shave my head" Focus Features Atomic Blonde is brutal Lorraine is lethal crafting weapons out of well everything A corkscrew becomes a shiv A backpack becomes a cudgel A hot plate becomes a hammer And in a nod to a classic technique taught in womens self-defense classes keys become brass knuckles Her foes are just as savage The films violence will make some viewers uncomfortable In one sequence that only lasts about 20 minutes but feels like an hour Lorraine is thrown down a flight of stairs shot at stabbed and repeatedly punched Much of it is shot in a single excruciating take that leaves Therons character and one of her assailants gasping for breath and struggling to stand upright Its a technical marvel Its also a marvel if you can watch it without cringing Director David Leitch got the job by championing this blunt approach It had worked for him on 2014s John Wick starring Reeves as a vengeful assassin Leitchs wife Kelly McCormick (one of Atomic Blondes producers) encouraged him to do the same with Theron whose production company optioned the Cold War story some seven years ago Most directors are reluctant to show women with black eyes let alone being hit So they pit female heroes against female villains or pretend petite women can flip 200-lb men or simply cut away during fight scenes Leitch argued there was no reason to "make allowances for the fact that shes a woman" Adds Leitch "For me its more compelling to be with her while shes suffering" Theron agreed "Its a disservice to women Part of it is male filmmakers not being comfortable with putting a woman in that position" she says "If a female spy is sent into the field why wouldnt she experience the same sh-t as a male spy" Before filming began Theron spent four hours a day training at the gym Leitch founded with his John Wick co-director Chad Stahelski They concentrated on realistic moves a woman could actually use against a 6 ft 4 in opponent "Theres a lot of roundhouse low leg kicks and throat chops and elbow strikes" the director says "Elbows and knees are really big for generating power and leverage for a smaller attacker" Thats not to say Atomic Blonde doesnt indulge in some fantasy Lorraines garter belts tight sweaters and white pleather coat that the actor likens to "a shiny condom" were inspired by the work of German photographer Helmut Newton The films vision of a crumbling East Berlin still manages to be glamorous with its cast of sexy unhinged spies including James McAvoy as another British agent who has "gone native" He struts around Berlin to the tune of "99 Luftballons" and "Blue Monday" in a fur coat and stunner shades And then theres the scene in which Lorraine seduces a fellow female spy (Sofia Boutella) originally a man in the graphic novel Its Bond-like: theres no falling in love just falling into bed "Some reviewers said The sex scene is too aggressive I dont want to be crass but its not a lovemaking scene Its two people getting it on" says Theron "When we say we need to own our sexuality that means everything about our sexuality It made me realize we have to push even harder to overturn old ideas of what women should act like in these movies" Mad Max: Fury Road Warner Bros Pictures We used to get about one female action hero per year If we were lucky we got one icon per decade: Ellen Ripley in Alien Sarah Connor in Terminator the Bride in Kill Bill Sigourney Weaver who arguably brought the first female action hero to life in Ripleya part by the way originally written for a mansays that roles for women have improved greatly "There isnt that thing that used to drive me crazy whenever I read the part: those scenes where the woman stops being effective and has a little breakdown to show you shes still a female entity" she says "Now they just get on with it" After all theres no one way to be a hero Because Lorraine isnt Wonder Woman who isnt Sarah Connor who isnt Ripley "Im trying to break these forms of how women ought to behave in movies" Theron says "Maybe they shouldnt behave at all" This appears in the August 7 2017 issue of TIME Write to Eliana Dockterman at elianadockterman@timecomTwenty years ago when the Spice Girls released their debut single the anthem “Wannabe”which was dropped in the UK on July 8 1996it quickly became clear that they had something that listeners “really really want” The song soared to the top of the charts in 31 countries and was at one point considered the best-selling debut single of all-time according to Billboard But they didn’t just make a splash in the world of pop music They were also arguably the most recognizable face of an important moment in the history of the UK: the mid-’90s celebration of youth culture that’s sometimes known as “Cool Britannia” and an attendant shift in the UK politics From Charles Saatchi’s patronage of the “Young British Artists” to Britpop bands Blur and Oasisand even an eponymous Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavoranything English was hip (Case in point: Geri Halliwell’s Union Jack minidress) As Newsweek put it in 1996 London “the coolest city on the planet” was “back” By 1997 the year of “Spice Up Your Life” Tony Blair and other proponents of “New Labour” sought to “spice up” Britain’s image after nearly two decades of Conservative Party rule by linking the Labour Party to the pop culture trend As Rolling Stone reported Blair had said that the Spice Girls’ “Say You’ll Be There” was one of his favorite records of 1996 and could name more members of the group than Conservative rival John Major After a poll rated Blair Britain’s most popular leader since World War II a 1998 TIME feature reported that his effort to associate himself with modern British icons like the Spice Girls was part of his mission to “modernize” the nation and its politics: The British economy is booming: the pound is up and unemployment is down Peace and prosperity Who could ask for anything more But just in case someone does there’s Britain’s current boom in the arts Whether it’s movies like the The Full Monty bands like Oasis and the Spice Girls or designers like Stella McCartney the hottest thing going these days seems to come from what is cloyingly known as “Cool Britannia” And while Blair admits that this artistic blossoming was under way before he took office he and his coterie of young advisers have relentlessly even shamelessly courted and promoted the hip as a way of announcing to the world that Britain is changing Other TIME magazine articles characterized the effort as “Tony Blair’s late-’90s attempt to sex up the UK’s image” and reported that “he has set himself the visionary target of ‘rebranding’ Britain Instead of enjoying this country of nice old things he wants to create a new ‘cool Britannia’” Get your history fix in one place: sign up for the weekly TIME History newsletter Wordsmiths of the 1990s however weren’t the ones to invent the term “Cool Britannia” In fact a psychedelic pop group called the Bonzo Dog Band had made the same play on “Rule Britannia” on their 1967 album Gorilla Some sociologists and experts in media and cultural studies argued that the renewed popularity of the phrase in the mid-1990s was appropriate After all that 1990s moment was in some ways a throwback to ’60s-era giddiness over another cultural boom in London which had coincided with the election of another Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson “This spring as never before in modern times London is switched on” TIME had declared in an April 15 1966 cover story about Swinging London “Ancient elegance and new opulence are all tangled up in a dazzling blur of op and pop The city is alive with birds (girls) and Beatles…the Rolling Stones whose music is most in right now reign as a new breed of royalty…In a once sedate world of faded splendor everything new uninhibited and kinky is blooming at the top of London life” But the idea of “Cool Britannia” as soft power had its skeptics “There is a particular danger in putting ‘creative’ industries and youth culture at the centre of a government-sponsored effort to change Britain’s image” a March 12 1998 Economist article argued “These are things that depend on fashion and spontaneity But few things are less fashionable or spontaneous than a grinning politician in a suit” Some say the optimism of “Cool Britannia” has since wanedand now more than ever it’s clear that British politics are bigger than any girl group Yet the buzz about a possible Spice Girls reunion tour and rumors about a reunion documentary show that at least that aspect of “Cool Britannia” won’t fall out of style anytime soon Write to Olivia B Waxman at oliviawaxman@timecom In todays digital world, Now the trio has created a model to examine in more detail how a cap-and-trade market might impact whale populations and how the costs and benefits would change for people who want to hunt or conserve them The model combines whale population dynamics with an economic model of demand for whales and shows what happens to prices and populations when whalers and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) exchange shares They examined the dynamics for three kinds of whales: minkes bowheads and gray whales North Atlantic minke whales number about 72000 and 550 are caught annually including for subsistence as well as for scientific whaling The model predicts that conservationists wouldn’t have any incentive to buy shares of minke whales until hunters deplete the population to a level of concern which could take 10 years But with bowheads which are slowly recovering from intense whaling in the 19th century conservations groups would be highly motivated to buy all the shares for 13 years until the population grows to the carrying capacity And they would purchase shares in gray whales for 30 years With all three species prices converged on $10000 a share The total cost to buy all the whale shares of all three species over 20 years would run about $114 million the researchers calculate Considered on an annual basis that’s a fraction of what NGOs spend now on whale campaigns So even at that price conservationists could save more whales for less money than they do now the authors conclude And whalers would benefit when they sell shares because they make money without having to get their feet wet “[A] well-designed whale conservation market simultaneously enhances conservation welfare and whaler welfare relative to the status quo" Gerber and colleagues write "In some sense this is unsurprising: Allowing voluntary trade rather than forbidding it tends to make both parties in an economic transaction better off” Palumbi however says he doesn’t put too much stock in these numbers "The paper is almost certainly wrong in detail about whales and whaling" he says "It misses many of the messy realities of modern whaling such as the huge subsidy that Japan gives its whalers" The main advance he says is creating a framework for calculating the values of competing uses? when the rate of membership was 20.A Beijing film festival has dropped acclaimed gay romance Call Me By Your
