Quebec universities launch world first UNESCO antiradicalization chair

first_imgMONTREAL – Quebec’s new UNESCO chair on the prevention of radicalization and violent extremism is the first of its kind in the world, say members of three universities who launched the project Friday in Sherbrooke, Que.The research centre will be directed by a team of professors from Concordia University, Universite de Sherbrooke and Universite du Quebec a Montreal.Co-director David Morin said the chair’s mission is to create a “pole of excellence” that will bring together experts in both research and field work.“(The goal) is to be able to develop programs, to evaluate them and to support the political decision-makers and the stakeholders in the field on the subject of prevention of radicalization,” said Morin, a professor at the Universite de Sherbrooke.He said the chair’s mission as well as its governance model make it a world first.“What is unique in the world is a UNESCO chair that’s tripartite — that brings together three universities that signed the agreement with UNESCO — but beyond that, it’s the gathering of national and international partners that are coming together to share their expertise,” Morin said.The project was conceived during the UNESCO conference on radicalization that Quebec hosted in 2016 and will become one of the international body’s 700 institutions in 116 countries that encourage inter-university cooperation around the world.The centre has an international focus and will collaborate with a network of over 40 partners across North America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America.Quebec has pledged $100,000 a year for the next four years to support the initiative.The current staff includes a chairholder from each school as well as a scientific director based at Universite de Sherbrooke.Co-chair Vivek Venkatesh said the centre’s activities will include providing training to people who work in marginalized communities and creating public engagement tools to counter hate speech and violent propaganda.As an example, he cited an ongoing project in Montreal’s East End that teaches marginalized youth to use music and literature to describe their experiences with hateful speech or actions.The chair will bring together multiple disciplines including political science, international development, social services, and psychology.It’s tripartite structure means each school can contribute their own resources and sources of funding, Venkatesh said.“This is a coming together of institutional allies but also people from disciplines from three different institutions,” the Concordia professor said.“Our training and our respective cultures are coming together in a very unique way.”The secretary general of the Canadian Commission for UNESCO praised the chair and its governance model as “a first in Canada and the world.”“We look forward to working with the chair to counter the rise of radicalization and violent extremism in Canada and the world,” Sebastien Goupil said in a statement.last_img read more

TALENT SPOTLIGHT TONY NAPPO

first_img Facebook Every week, eBOSS Canada will shine the spotlight on an aspiring industry mover & shaker (Actor, Model, Producer, Director, Writer, etc.).    TODAY WE TURN THE TALENT SPOTLIGHT ONTONY NAPPOActorTony has been nominated for Outstanding Performance – Male in the 2018 ACTRA Awardsas Quinn Diaz in Split Seconds (Toronto 48 Hour Film Project)Tony Nappo was born and raised in Scarborough, Ontario. He went on to study acting in New York at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. He is a theatrical staple in Toronto and has worked in many high profile Hollywood films including Disney’s Zombies, Born to be Blue, Four Brothers, Saw2, Land of the Dead, and Murder at 1600. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Advertisement He has appeared in endless independent films including The Go-Getters, This Beautiful City, Beat Down, Stag, You Might As Well Live and The Rainbow Kid. He voices the lead character, Jimmy Falcone, in the hit animated series Fugget About It and has appeared in over a hundred episodes of television including Bad Blood, Baroness Von Sketch, Kim’s Convenience, Murdoch Mysteries, Shoot The Messenger, Remedy, Flashpoint, Killjoys, Rookie Blue, Conviction, Breakout Kings, Saving Hope and Davinci’s Inquest. He has been nominated for a Canadian Screen Award, two Actra Awards, a Broadway World Award and two Dora Mavor Moore Awards1. What was your journey to becoming an actor? Where did it begin?I think it began as a boy. We were fairly poor and my dad was not in good health so I spent a lot of time escaping through movies and television and, most especially, my imagination. I remember lying in bed and acting out all of these epic stories and just building forts from sofa cushions and cardboard boxes and living out all these fantasies that had nothingo to do with my actual life.2. What project are you most proud of and why?I’m pretty proud of most of what I am doing recently. I just feel like I have come to that point in my life and career where I am challenged more often in terms of content and variety on stage and on film and am able to rise to the challenge. I am always paying attention and learning from my peers and learning new things about myself constantly to bring to my work. I am especially proud of Split Seconds right now because it just became public and because it is a perfect short film,In my mind. It is just crazy to me that this insanely talented group of people could conceive of and execute it within 48 hours.3. What advice do you have for aspiring actors?Do something every single day that will make you a better actor. Read scripts, plays, biographies of actors you admire. See plays and films and get familiar with any shows or projects you’re likely to audition for. Take classes. Write. Anything. Go to the gym if that’s a part of your thing. Just do something. Nobody is waiting around for you to arrive. So when your chances do come, be ready for them.4. What advice can you give aspiring actors for preparing for an audition? (e.g. Do you study with a private coach?)I don’t prepare a lot for auditions, personally. I like to barely even know the lines. That just works for me. It wouldn’t work for everyone. As long as I know what I want to DO with the words, I’m golden. The biggest thing I’d say to newer actors is don’t prepare HOW you want to do it. Because you’ll get stuck in that. Prepare what you are going to do and be ready to do it a hundred different ways. There is no right way or wrong way to do any audition. There is just true and false, as Mamet says. They either believe you or they don’t. And don’t get hung up on the words. They want to see you execute the scene, not memorize the text- it’s not a history test.5. Which acting teacher/coach/school played the biggest role in your career?)A professor named Kathy Smith at the University of Toronto, Scarborough campus, when I was a student there in the late 80s. In my second year, she pulled me into her office one day and asked what I was going to do with my life and I said I wanted to be an English teacher. She told me if I truly committed to studying acting that I would likely be able to make a living at it for the rest of my life. She suggested a school in New York and I auditioned for it, got in, dropped out of University and never looked back. I am always amazed, when I look back, that Kathy changed my entire life’s trajectory with that one single conversation.6. Do you feel it is necessary for performers to promote themselves in order to advance their careers? (e.g. using social media)Unfortunately it is necessary, especially when you’re starting out, as dumb as it is because it has ZERO to do with the work. Though, I admit that I play the game now, too, even though I resisted for years. I joined twitter and Instagram last year and I don’t think it has made any difference at all. I mean, I’ve already been around for almost thirty years now. If industry people don’t know me by now, I’m in big trouble.7. What is the hardest role/character you’ve ever played?Gio in Bad Blood was hard in a way because he mostly observed and didn’t say much. I mean, the director told Gio’s story by covering me a lot and using that coverage which was necessary for those big plot points I was a part of to pay off, in the end. But I couldn’t rely on my usual tricks of add libbing or sneaking in stuff that I knew would make the audience like the guy. There was no room for cheating.8. If you could turn back time and appear in any film made in the past 20 years, which film and character would you choose … and why?I never think that way. There were auditions I blew that I’d like to have over.Or maybe a performance I thought that someone els gave and sucked that i could have done a better job. Buy any film that I have loved in the last 20 years, I wouldn’t touch them. They just inspire me to do better work and hopefully be able to be a part of some film that someone else may be inspired by twenty years from now.9. What would you like to see the Canadian Film/TV industry can do differently in order to grow?I think it needs to promote their actors more and build stars. I think the producer’s fear has always been if you make stars here you have to pay them as stars but if you build them up, I think producers would find that they could generate more revenue than they would cost.10. We all have mentors. These are the people who give us the hope, inspiration, and the drive to keep going. In the industry, who are the people who have been your mentors and why?My mentors have always been the journeymen. The guys like David Fox, who are still doing fringe shows and indie films at 75 years old. The guys who aren’t a quick flash but who are true craftsmen and who you always believe when you see them on stage or screen. The one guy outside of that category -because he is and has been a star since the day I met him – is Nicholas Campbell who took me under his wing when I was about 24 years old and spent a lot of time with me and taught me a lot about the importance of the work and being able to execute it on my own terms. I don’t think I would be the actor I am today or that I would have been able to attack it all with the confidence I did if I hadn’t had the opportunity to drink in all of his experiences and know that an actor of his calibre believed in me.

Javier Hernandez ready for West Hams crucial winter schedule

first_imgWest Ham United forward Javier Hernandez plans to give his all ahead of the club’s busy winter period of Premier League gamesTonight’s game with Cardiff City will be the first of seven league games in the space of a month for West Ham.Crystal Palace, Fulham, Watford, Southampton, Burnley and Brighton will all be awaiting them over the Christmas period.But Chicharito, who scored twice in his first start since October in West Ham’s 3-0 win at Newcastle on Saturday, views the fixture list as an opportunity to gain some much-needed points.Currently, West Ham are only six points above the relegation zone in the Premier League after winning just four of their opening 14 matches.“December is always crucial for us to get as many points as we can and to achieve the goals we want to,” Chicharito told the club website.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“We are all going to be ready now for the [Christmas] period and we know that recovery will now be crucial as well as training.“People don’t give enough credit to that and to how important recovery is and you have to be ready, always.“I’m used to playing for Mexico and since I came to Europe, I haven’t had any summer off – only when it was the Olympics and I didn’t go with the national team, when I was with Manchester United.“So it’s normal for me [not to have a break]. The worse thing for me was the virus that I got, and it was just a case of waiting for that to go away and that virus got me almost five weeks away.“That was crucial but thankfully I’ve got into my best shape physically and thankfully the manager can recall me and I can return with goals.”Chicharito has scored four goals in 11 appearances for West Ham this season.last_img read more

Dance Central VR Coming to Oculus Quest as Launch Title

first_img“Dance Central” doesn’t sound like something that should work in virtual reality, let alone work well. And while some concessions were necessary to make it work, “Dance Central VR” is an excellent adaptation of the seven-year-old franchise.A big piece of the success is the Oculus Quest hardware. The standalone headset is due in Spring 2019, and Harmonix will be there at launch with “Dance Central VR.” It’s also due for Oculus Rift with cross-buy, for those that aren’t quite ready to upgrade to the self-contained Quest.The original “Dance Central” titles used the Xbox 360 and Xbox One Kinect to track the full body. That’s just not possible in VR, so Harmonix commissioned choreography that is mindful of the limitations.“We can’t score you the same way we used to, because we can only track your hands and your head,” says “Dance Central” creative lead Arthur Inasi. “That seems to make the experience a little more accessible and less scary for new players. And the fact that you have the helmet on and you aren’t seeing the outside world makes it easier for you to lose yourself.” On the standard difficulty, there is a lot of move repetition, so players can get comfortable. Hand gestures are a big part of “Dance Central VR,” using the Touch controllers’ capacitive buttons to signify open hands, fists, and pointing. These are not scored as strictly until you get to Pro difficulty.The 32 songs “Dance Central VR” ships with will all be available at launch with no in-game gating. Players will be able to take on Pro mode with little barrier, also. Popular on Variety The Quest has an expansive tracking field (about 210 degrees), but Harmonix has figured out how to expand that using the new Touch controllers shipping with the Quest.“We can track acceleration and velocity once we’ve lost [visual] tracking,” Inasi explains. “We can track on the controllers themselves, even if they are outside the Quest’s view. It calculates how long it takes to move back into tracking.”Harmonix is also careful to ensure that aren’t dance moves that might threaten to fling an HMD from a player’s head. The choreography is designed to limit head and body gestures so your expensive Rift or Quest doesn’t go flying across the room.“We had to consider that when we hired choreographers that we used moves that were not too extravagant, didn’t have you spinning around, didn’t have you facing backward, or walking off in a certain direction,” Inasi says. “We tend to do a lot of movements that are in front of your body or out to the side. Simple left and right stuff. No jumping.”The in-game experience delivers on the immersion. It’s easier to feel comfortable dancing when the world around you is blocked out. The dancer players are asked to mirror are close enough that it feels like they are dancing with you instead of for you. The move “flash cards” also return to show you what moves are coming up. One of the challenges of any multiplayer space is the possibility of harassment. Harmonix has a solution ready. There are posters that adorn the lounge walls that let players know about a quick way to get rid of bad actors. “We wanted a quick way for people to mute someone,” says product manager Alicia Caillier. “If you double thumbs-down, that mutes their audio and freezes their avatar. It gives you some time to report or change rooms.”“Dance Central VR” hooks into Oculus’ system-level reporting and moderation tools. Harmonix has taken the next step to give players an immediate way to protect themselves.center_img In addition to live multiplayer, players can send challenges (complete with custom-recorded dance taunts) to their friends. Challenge, dance, and wait to see if your friend can top your performance.“Dance Central VR” feels great to play, even if it doesn’t directly challenge players to move their legs in specific ways. The necessary changes for virtual reality certainly change the experience, but they don’t detract from feeling like a dance floor superstar.The game’s songs will include chart-toppers from the ’70s through today. Harmonix said these will be the game’s first six songs:Bruno Mars ft. Cardi B “Finesse (Remix)”The Chainsmokers ft. Daya “Don’t Let Me Down”DJ Snake & Lil Jon “Turn Down for What”Haddaway “What is Love”Pitbull ft. Ne-Yo, Afrojack, & Nayer “Give Me Everything”Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock “It Takes Two” Harmonix incorporated learnings from previous VR projects over the two-year design period. The biggest is giving players a sense of comfort and belonging in the virtual environment.“The idea of presence in a space is important, and we learned a lot from ‘Rock Band VR’ about how to make you feel like you’re in a real space, particularly from an audio perspective… where speakers are in space, how the crowd reacts to you” Inasi explains. “I don’t think we could have done this without that.”“Dance Central VR” includes a campaign that allows players to unlock new dance partners and phone cases. Your cell phone is always by your side as a sleek menu, including for taking selfies in the extensive customization screen.Harmonix is offering a large number of face and hairstyle types, and none are segmented by gender. This ensures players can feel free to express themselves in an authentic way.“Dance Central VR” also innovates on the franchise with fully synchronized multiplayer across both HMDs. Players are dropped into a social lounge space. Moving across the space can be customized in three ways: traditional thumbstick movement, teleporting from point to point, or dancing. Shimmying your way across the dance floor is handled with simple arm gestures, and the game animates your avatar to look like you’re dancing, using motion capture data. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

CM visits Tarapith takes stock of development work

first_imgKolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee visited Kali temple at Tarapith and offered puja and bhog on Thursday morning. She was accompanied by state Agriculture minister Ashis Banerjee.Later, she took stock of the work being carried out in the temple town. Following her initiative, Tarapith Rampurhat Development Authority (TRDA) was set up in March 2015. The sole purpose behind formation of the authority was to upgrade Tarapith into a world class centre for religious tourism.

Nearly half of US consumers are unwilling to pay f

first_imgNearly half of US consumers are unwilling to pay for even one streaming on-demand service, according to Parrot Analytics’ Global Television Demand Report.The report, which focuses on the first financial quarter of 2018 and studied ten global territories, found that US consumers were least likely to sign up to SVOD services among the regions. The territories include Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, South Korea, Switzerland, the UK and the US.In the UK and Brazil, consumers had similar results with 45% and 43% saying they aren’t willing to pay for a single streaming service, respectively. By comparison, 82% of Italian respondents said they were willing to subscribe to one of more SVOD services.Brazil has the greatest percentage of people among the market willing to pay for four or more services reaching almost 15%, where only 4% of US respondents stated that they are willing to do the same.Interestingly, in the UK consumers aged 55 to 64 make up 28% of subscribers willing to pay to three SVOD services, while people 25-34 make up 29% of subscribers willing to pay for four or more.“We were really surprised how consumers’ willingness to pay for multiple SVOD services is different for each of these markets, especially Italy, and it was interesting to discover that US consumers were the most reticent of the four markets we examined,” said Samuel Stadler, vice president of marketing at Parrot Analytics.“However, our findings were in line with the latest Netflix subscriber numbers, which show about 20% of the U.S. population having subscribed to their service – the same number we found that are willing to pay for one service, so that makes sense. What was also a consistent theme in our study is that for every market we looked at, males are more willing to pay for SVOD services than females.”The top digital series in the US, Switzerland and the UK was CBS All Access’ drama Star Trek: Discovery, edging out Netflix’s Stranger Things. However, Stranger Things was the top digital series in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Greece, Italy, South Korea, and the Netherlands for the quarter.Parrot Analytics ranks TV series across both SVOD and linear/broadcast channels in 100+ markets using its global TV demand measurement system, which collects billions of daily consumer Demand Expressions (streaming, downloading, social media interactions, blogging etc.) and then weights and ranks these audience demand expressions according to their significance.last_img read more
