It’s an interesting exercise.Quick, name your top five favourite female directors.“It would be interesting to see how many people can actually think of five,” said award-winning filmmaker Sandi Somers. “If you narrow it down to Canada, what are the names you would come up with? If you narrow it even further down to Alberta, what names do you come up with?” Taouba Khelifa on the set of her film Enough.

There has always been a significant imbalance when it comes to women working in film and television. According to Women in View, a national not-for-profit organization looking to strengthen gender diversity in Canadian media, female directors make up only 17 per cent of those working on scripted projects in Canada. The numbers don’t get any better when looking at a broader breakdown of women in key jobs on film and television productions. Only 22 per cent of writers and 12 per cent of cinematographers are women.“The gender imbalance really has to shift,” says Somers, who has made 75 short films of various genres and will be directing her first feature in the spring. “There’s no reason for it to exist. It’s old-school and now we’re demanding there be a new school.” Advertisement Facebook Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Login/Register With: Twitter
CALGARY, A.B. – Vermilion Energy Inc. says it’s now the operator of the Corrib natural gas project in Ireland on behalf of partners that include a subsidiary of the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and Norway’s Equinor.The CPPIB’s Nephin Energy Holdings Ltd. is expected to hold a 43.5 percent interest in the Corrib project after a series of transactions, with Equinor (formerly known as Statoil) owning 36.5 percent and Vermilion holding 20 percent.The project had formerly been operated by a subsidiary of Shell Overseas Holdings Ltd., which sold its 45 percent stake in Corrib to CPPIB, the Canada Pension Plan’s Toronto-based fund manager. Vermilion says it will increase its stake in Corrib from 18.5 percent after acquiring an additional 1.5 percent working interest from CPPIB when its deal with Shell is finalized.Calgary-based Vermilion has producing properties in North America, Europe and Australia.
NEW YORK — Lyft passengers will soon be able to request a ride in an electric or hybrid vehicle when they’re planning a trip.The ride-hailing company is launching the feature first in Seattle and then in other cities. The option will show up when passengers are choosing between available Lyft vehicles and it will not be more expensive than taking a ride in a traditional vehicle.Lyft Chief Operating Officer Jon McNeill says customers and drivers in the Pacific Northwest have been asking for greener vehicles.Lyft is also rolling out electric vehicles in Seattle and Atlanta in its fleet of cars it rents to Lyft drivers who don’t own their own vehicles.Uber launched a feature in June that notifies passengers if they’re in an electric vehicle.Cathy Bussewitz, The Associated Press
A local variety of the nutrient-rich, blue-green algae known as spirulina could boost incomes for women in Chad who harvest the product as well as help fight nutrition, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) reported today.The agency is running a $1.4 million project in which women are gathering and processing the product, known locally as dihé, from the shallow pools of water on the edges of Lake Chad where it forms at certain times of the year. Launched in 2007, the project showed them how to do the job more efficiently and hygienically, and how to process, package and market the product, which is traditionally dried into a thin biscuit and later made into a bitter-tasting sauce. So far 10 tons of dihé have been produced and sold through pharmacies and groceries in the country, generating 50 million CFA Francs (€75,000) of profits for 500 women, according to the project’s coordinator, Mahamat Sorto.Mr. Sorto claims that the naturally-produced dihé has better nutritional value than the commercially-produced spirulina and is 100 times cheaper than the product retailed in developed countries. “However, prior to broader promotion and marketing further tests on the product may be needed and international certification obtained,” FAO stated. 29 July 2010A local variety of the nutrient-rich, blue-green algae known as spirulina could boost incomes for women in Chad who harvest the product as well as help fight nutrition, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) reported today.

As of 24 August, 37,500 demobilized ex-combatants have been placed in rehabilitation and reintegration projects funded bilaterally and another 35,448 in projects funded by the UN Development Programme’s (UNDP) Disarmament, Demobilization, Reintegration and Rehabilitation (DDRR) Trust Fund, he tells the Security Council in his latest report on the West African country emerging from years of civil war.”Despite this progress, some 26,000 ex-combatants have still not been able to participate in the reintegration and rehabilitation programme, which faces a funding shortfall of approximately $18.5 million,” Mr. Annan says.Despite contributions of $15 million from the United States, $9.5 million from the European Commission and $3.4 million from Sweden, a further $7 million is required to meet the costs of ex-combatant schooling since the National Commission on DDRR, which includes donor representatives, decided to extend payments for another two years, he says.Consultations between the Transitional Government and its international partners on the proposed governance and economic management assistance programme (GEMAP) have met protracted delays, but the programme “would help Liberia to meet the requirements for the lifting of the sanctions imposed on Liberia by the Security Council,” he says.”I would therefore strongly urge the Transitional Government to work closely with the international partners with a view to reaching an early agreement on the programme so that it could be presented for the consideration of the Security Council and put into operation with the minimum delay,” Mr. Annan says.Meanwhile, the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) is providing a secure environment in which the National Elections Commission can plan and run free, fair, transparent and peaceful democratic elections, he says. UNMIL civil affairs officers have received civic and voter education training and are complementing the efforts of the UNMIL Electoral Division staff in the counties.The UNMIL Gender Unit and the UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) are working with the Ministry of Gender and Development and with civil society to increase the participation of women in the electoral process, he adds.

As the Brock Badgers men’s basketball team stood in a hallway waiting to go out onto the court at Ryerson University’s Mattamy Athletic Centre Wednesday night, one of the players excitedly said to his teammates, “it’s like an NCAA gym out there.”They weren’t even on the court yet, but peering out through a glass door into the gym the whole team could feel it. Everyone in the building could feel it.Brock is claiming to have the best university basketball fans in the country and amid the banging of drums, the screaming fans and the sea of red and white Wednesday, it would be hard to make an argument against that claim.Three school buses full of Badgers fans made the trip to downtown Toronto as the Badgers men’s and women’s basketball teams took on the highly ranked Ryerson Rams.Both the Brock men’s and women’s teams came up short in their games – the women losing 74-67 and the men 104-79 – but the road trip was more proof of Brock’s dominance when it comes to fan support.“It’s unbelievable. Brock is a community and these guys that come out to our games are part of our program,” said Badgers forward Matt Marshall. “We didn’t give them what they wanted to see, but we hope they continue to come out. We appreciate every single one of them.”As the men’s game wrapped up, the team walked over to the side of the Ryerson gym where Brock’s 150 supporters had amassed and clapped their hands out of gratitude.Among the fans was Brock Vice-President, Administration Brian Hutchings, who said he was impressed with the turnout.“It’s fantastic. Half of going to university is the academics and half is the experience and we had 150 students coming out here having a great time tonight,” he said.Hutchings said the Badgers hype continues to build.“It’s building and building and building and now we’re getting pressure to expand the gym because we can’t get enough people in there,” he said. “It’s phenomenal.”
Mrs Mascolo is the widow of Guy Mascolo (pictured) who, together with his brother Toni, was the founder of Toni&GuyCredit:AP Photo He led her to believe that he was a well-connected chef with a Michelin star gradingRupert D’Cruz, representing Flora Mascolo Mr Riemenschneider, who has a string of UK restaurants, including several in London, denies all the allegations against him and insists any money he received from Mrs Mascolo, who lives in a £5m house in west London, was by way of legitimate investment in two restaurant projects.On Friday at London’s High Court Mrs Mascolo obtained a crucial evidence disclosure order against him. If Mr Riemenschneider fails to comply in full, he could lose the chance to defend himself in court and be ordered to pay up before Christmas.At an earlier High Court hearing the widow’s barrister, Rupert D’Cruz, said that Mrs Mascolo claims to have bought her former boyfriend a £150,000 Mercedes. She also gave him £2.12m to invest in two new restaurants whilst they were together, the court heard. The wealthy widow of one of the Toni&Guy founders who claimed she was duped by her toyboy ex-boyfriend could be in line for £2 million after obtaining a court order against him.Flora Mascolo, the 50-year-old widow of Guy Mascolo, is suing her 35-year-old ex-lover, German “celebrity chef” and restaurateur Michael Riemenschneider, claiming he is a “professional conman”.She has alleged that Mr Riemenschneider fleeced her of £2m during their 18-month relationship between September 2014 and April 2016. On Friday at London’s High Court Mrs Mascolo obtained a crucial evidence disclosure orderCredit:Andrew Matthews/PA Wire But she now claims Mr Riemenschneider is a “liar” and a gold-digger who “used the restaurants as a front” to obtain her millions, and claims he spent her cash on a “lavish personal lifestyle”, including super cars, expensive watches, and private jets.Mr Riemenschneider falsely “led her to believe that he was a well-connected chef with a Michelin star grading”, said Mr D’Cruz. In reality, he was a “professional conman”, the barrister claimed.Huw Davies QC, for Mr Riemenschneider, has accused Mrs Mascolo of “oppressive behaviour” towards him and demanded time for the chef to fight the claims – but neither he, nor his lawyers, were in court as Mr Justice Males granted the disclosure order.Mr Riemenschneider is now compelled to give detailed disclosure of his worldwide and UK financial assets to Mrs Mascolo’s lawyers. He has until 1pm on December 23 to comply with the court order. If he doesn’t, Mrs Mascolo will have “an opportunity to obtain judgement in default before Christmas”, Mr Justice Males said.Mr D’Cruz explained outside court that Mrs Mascolo’s lawyers plan to return to court on the afternoon of December 23. If the chef has not obeyed the court order in full by then, they will demand damages and costs of over £2m.Mrs Mascolo is the widow of Guy Mascolo who, together with his brother Toni, was the founder of Toni&Guy. Their globally renowned hairdressing company was launched in Clapham in South London in 1963 when the brothers were still in their late teens. At the time of his death from a heart attack in 2009, Mr Mascolo was estimated to be worth over £250m. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras is due to ask his eurozone counterparts Monday to begin considering further debt relief for Greece, with the government already having drafted a number of options to reduce the repayments the country faces in the years to come.Having achieved a primary surplus of 1.5 billion euros in 2013, Greece will demand that the Eurogroup lives up to its November 2012 commitment to examine other ways of reducing the country’s giant debt burden of roughly 175 percent of gross domestic product. It is highly unlikely, though, that Stournaras will get an immediate answer. The matter will probably be referred to the Euro Working Group, with the technical team that advises eurozone finance ministers being asked to come up with proposals on how to reduce Greece’s debt.“Discussions will begin but there are a number of preconditions to be met, not just the primary surplus,” a high-ranking European Union official told Kathimerini. “That is why the negotiations will take place when the next [troika] review [of the Greek adjustment program] has been completed.”Sources have told Kathimerini that there is some reluctance within the eurozone to make any firm commitments now because of the proximity to the European Parliament elections on May 25.Reducing Greece’s debt is a politically sensitive issue in a number of eurozone countries. Also, Greece’s lenders feel that they can use the issue of debt relief for leverage over the next few months to ensure that Athens meets its structural reform commitments.Although there is not likely to be a definitive answer regarding Greek debt lightening until the fall, Athens has worked on some proposals.The first part of the Greek plan consists of stretching the maturity of 192.8 billion euros in loans the country has received from the eurozone to 50 years. The Greek Loan Facility (GLF) loans amount to 52.9 billion euros and have an average maturity of 17 years. The 139.9 billion euros Greece has received from the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF) have an average maturity of 30 years.An extension could reduce Greece’s debt repayments over the next couple of decades by about 6 billion euros a year.The second part of the proposal consists of switching to a fixed interest rate on the GLF loans. Currently, Greece is paying a rate of 0.83 percent (Euribor plus 0.50) but as the Euribor rate is expected to rise over the next few years, Athens wants to ensure lower repayments by fixing it at a low rate.

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp New, stringent posture on illegal construction makes fines, personal demolition and possible deportation legal says PDM Minister, law now passed August 30th – One Year since Hurricane Irma named Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppAntigua and Barbuda, September 6th, 2017 – St. John’s – The Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda, Hon. Gaston Browne has officially confirmed the total destruction of Barbuda, with almost 100% of homes being destroyed by Hurricane Irma and at least one confirmed fatality.Antigua, which is approximately 38 miles away from its sister isle Barbuda, experienced heavy rains, flooding and hurricane enforced winds damaging some buildings and vehicles. However, Barbuda wasn’t as lucky as Prime Minister Browne revealed the island is now “barely inhabitable”.Prime Minister Browne also confirmed that Hurricane Irma’s fury took the life of a 2-year-old infant as the baby’s mother was trying to escape a destroyed property during the hurricane.With approximately 1,600 residents on the island of Barbuda, Browne said as the eye of the Hurricane passed over the island, it caused “absolute devastation, and this is no hyperbole.”Since early morning, there was also loss of communication between the islands, cell towers were damaged, no water, no electricity, the airport and hospital damaged, and all residents have been left homeless. As a result, the prime minister has estimated the damages to “be no less than $150million and that is no exaggeration,” he saidAt present, Hurricane Irma is now 50miles East Northeast of Antigua moving in a West Northwest direction for its next victim, which is expected to be Puerto Rico. As it spreads to the Greater Antilles, it can hit Hispaniola (Dominican Republic and Haiti), Turks and Caicos, Bahamas, Cuba and Florida leading into the weekend.The unprecedented destruction caused by Hurricane Irma now leaves the island completely vulnerable to the other brewing hurricanes and residents will need to be evacuated as soon as possible as Hurricane Jose continues to grow in strength. As for the psychological impact of its people, that may be far greater.Story By: Kay-Marie Fletcher Recommended for you FortisTCI announces bid to hike electricity bills, cites record $42m response to hurricanes as destabilizing Related Items:#Barbuda, #Destruction, #HurricaneIrma, #HurricaneJose, #magneticmedianews, ANTIGUA

In yet another high-profile recruitment by a domestic start-up, the outgoing chief financial officer (CFO) of Infosys, Rajiv Bansal, has reportedly been hired by online taxi aggregator Ola as its new finance head.Bansal will join Ola, India’s biggest online cab aggregator, from 1 January, sources familiar with the matter told The Economic Times.”The offer letter has been accepted,” said a source. “This move is in line with our initiative of getting top talent from across industries to further strengthen the core Ola team,” the person added.The Bengaluru-based firm has been looking out for a finance chief for the past one year, the report said.Ola claims to have 80% of the market share after acquiring TaxiForSure in this March. The company expects to clock 1 million trips a day from the current 750,000 trips. It also plans to expand its services to about 200 smaller towns and cities in the country.In a surprise move, Bansal announced his resignation as CFO of Infosys last week and will be replaced by MD Ranganath.Following the announcement, Bansal, who was queried by reporters about his future plans, had said “Our paths will cross again. Whether it will be at a private equity fund, a large business house or a startup, I can’t say at the moment. But I am looking forward to working in a value creation space.”After joining India’s second largest IT firm Infosys in 1999, Bansal took charge as the CFO of the company in 2012. He was among the top paid officials at Infosys, after UB Pravin Rao, the company’s chief operating officer and Vishal Sikka, the CEO of Infosys.”He’s a brilliant CFO and we will miss him even as we respect his decision and wish him continued success in his future endeavors,” Sikka had said about Bansal’s resignation.
