The film follows Aamir, a 24 year-old man escaping the threat of murder in Sudan. Aamir’s father sold the last valuable item the family had to pay traffickers to take his son away from certain death. This begins a journey across Sudan, Libya, the Mediterranean, Italy and France. The film is the first in a series of 360 films exploring the meaning of home through the stories of refugees who have been living in the Calais Jungle, and is a collaboration between the NT, Surround Vision and Room One.Mahdi Yahya, managing director of Room One said:“Some stories are so extraordinary that even the most imaginative of us struggle to believe them. This immersive new technology puts an end to that struggle and lets us share in the grief, strength and hope of those at the sharper end of human existence.”HOME | AAMIR premiered at Sheffield Doc/Fest, in an immersive installation as part of Alternate Realities: Virtual Reality Arcade, a programme curated by Mark Atkin, at Site Gallery and The Space that took place from 10th-15th June.Immersive storytelling and virtual reality are being increasingly adopted by charities to engage people in a cause. This month, virtual reality company Oculus announced two projects as part of its VR for Good programme, one of which will give 10 charities or nonprofits the opportunity to tell their stories through VR. In April, Islamic Relief recreated the war-torn streets of Aleppo in a London warehouse in an event aimed at raising awareness and funds for those affected, while back in February UNESCO targeted funders with an immersive digital storytelling experience that highlighted the importance of providing people that operate local radio stations – key communications channels in reaching local communities – with ICT skills. National Theatre branches into immersive storytelling with studio launch
Mall of America, Dec. 20.Photo: Fight Back! NewsThe end-of-the-year holiday season in the United States did not slow down the “Black Lives Matter” demonstrations demanding justice for the victims of racist police brutality and killings.Since the exonerations of cop Darren Wilson, killer of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and cops in Staten Island, N.Y., for their murder caught on videotape of Eric Garner, protests have continued across the U.S. Protesters in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Oakland, Calif., Atlanta, Cleveland, Detroit and Houston linked these and other cases of police killings and racist atrocities around the country.‘No business as usual’ for shoppers, copsOn Dec. 20, the largest megamall in the U.S., Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn., was taken over by several thousand protesters who crowded the main rotunda on one of the busiest shopping days of the year. They chanted, “No justice, no shopping!” and “While you’re on your shopping spree, Black people can’t breathe,” in reference to Garner, along with “Hands up, don’t shoot,” recalling the murder of Brown.“Quickly, the mall went into partial lockdown, closing its north and east entrances and locking about 80 stores, trapping some customers inside.” (Associated Press, Dec. 20) Riot-clad police arrested 26 people, most for misdemeanors, while the Bloomington city attorney has announced she will seek charges against the leaders of Black Lives Matter, which organized the demonstration. (mprnews.org, Dec. 29)Actions took place across the U.S. on New Year’s Eve. Protesters in St. Louis planned a sit-in inside the lobby of police headquarters. They shouted and pushed their way through the doors “only to be met by a line of aggressive police and pepper spray.” (stltoday.com, Jan. 4) The demonstrators posted an eviction notice demanding the cops vacate the premises and relinquish power. About two dozen activists were cited for various alleged acts associated with the protest.Ferguson activists: ‘Reclaim MLK’The Ferguson Action Team held a national planning meeting by conference call on Jan. 3. “The main focus was on a national effort to reclaim MLK Day weekend in the rebellious spirit of Dr. King and the movement behind him,” said participant Monica Moorehead, representing the Peoples Power Assembly. “Ferguson activists asked for everyone’s renewed efforts this year to ensure their demands for justice are met.”She reported that FAT leaders stated, “This means sustained actions, deeper commitments, and further outreach to everyone in our communities. Let’s make 2015 a ‘Year of Resistance for Black Lives.’”Activists around the U.S. are focusing on three dates for actions: Jan. 15, the date of King’s birthday, as a day of mass resistance; Jan. 18 as a day of reflection, with special emphasis on faith-based outreach; and Jan. 19, a day of direct, mass actions on the official King holiday. Actions on other days are also welcomed.For a listing of upcoming actions related to MLK, including a link to add actions, go to fergusonresponse.tumblr.com. To sign the “New Year’s Revolution pledge to make 2015 the Year of Resistance,” go to engage.fergusonaction.com/pledge-new-years-revolution. To promote MLK anti-racist actions on Twitter, use the hashtag #ReclaimMLK.Protests continue across U.S.Here are abbreviated reports from Workers World Party activists in several cities.Chanting “Hands down, fists up!” hundreds in Houston marched to the courthouse on Dec. 29 demanding justice for Jordan Baker. The 26-year-old unarmed Black man was murdered by a Houston cop who was not indicted on Dec. 23 for the shooting.Baker, a college student, worker and father, was shot and killed on Jan. 16, 2014, when he was riding his bicycle through a shopping center three blocks from his house. His family contends he was killed for being Black and wearing a hoodie. The Harris County grand jury’s “no bill” has led to several marches, rallies and calls for justice.Every single police officer who has shot a resident since 2004 has had his case cleared by a Harris County grand jury. Last year 47 officers were no-billed by grand juries, which included 20 cases where civilians died. Cops were never tried in any of these cases. (Houston Chronicle, Jan. 5)Declaring “All Black Lives Matter,” Atlanta protesters on Dec. 20 afternoon blockaded a busy intersection where two of the largest upscale shopping malls in the city are located. The multinational group of mostly young people spread large banners on the pavement and then, chained together in a series of lock boxes, laid down on the street, bringing traffic to a stop for some 90 minutes. Thirteen people were arrested.Organizers noted the inconvenience to thousands of motorists, but stated that as long as Black and Brown people, particularly youth, could not walk safely to avoid police terror, there could be no business as usual.The previous evening, a die-in was held inside a suburban Atlanta mall as dozens of people laid down on the floor, chanting “Black lives matter.”There were actions Dec. 27 for Akai Gurley at Pink Houses in East New York, Brooklyn. Gurley, unarmed, was killed Nov. 20 by police in a dark stairwell at that location. The protests included three rallies, a march of some 500 in the streets and demonstrations at two police precincts. There, people turned their backs on the cops and yelled for the ones on the roofs to “Jump!” A “lie-in” was also held at the second precinct.A rally speaker from Malcolm X Grassroots Movement stated, “Gurley’s murder was not an accident. It’s the paramilitary approach to policing our community. We refuse to be policed based on race and economics. We charge genocide! We will end this genocide!”There was no business as usual in downtown Newark, N.J., on New Year’s Eve as students of color from the Eleven25 Coalition at Essex County College and their supporters, including members of the International Action Center, Peoples Organization for Progress and Veterans For Peace, shut down three major intersections starting at 3 p.m. Heavy, early-rush-hour, pre-holiday traffic was stopped for 15 minutes at each intersection. Activists marched in the street from one intersection to the other. Some passersby joined the protest.Most drivers understood the students’ message about police violence, racism, the capitalist system and “Black Lives Matter” and waited patiently for the protest to move on. Many honked their horns in support — especially bus and truck drivers — while others raised clenched fists in solidarity.In Boston on Dec. 31, the “First Night Against Police Violence” die-in took place. “First Night” is a New Year’s Eve blowout that includes fireworks, ice sculptures and a parade. A couple hundred demonstrators received wide media coverage because they refused the pleas of the mayor and police to stay away from First Night.Michael Kramer, Dianne Mathiowetz, Tony Murphy, Anne Pruden and Gloria Rubac contributed to this report.

And there’s– in our world, there’s almost no one bigger than John Corigliano.”Big does not only describe the composer’s reputation, it describes his symphony: “Circus Maximus.”“Circus Maximus” calls for musicians to perform on the stage, in the balconies, in the back of the auditorium, and up and down the isles.“You start getting into issues of the speed of sound is slower than the speed of light,” Blessinger said of the logistical difficulties. “And so what the performer sees is going to be different than what the performer hears up there so they have to compensate for those things.”Corigliano said he chose the complicated format because he is trying to get across the impact media and technology have in today’s world.“The communication we have, the texting, the watching of the 500 channels of television the constant amusement that we have, and yet we know that this technology can bring a bomb in a suitcase into a city and destroy it,” Corigliano said. “So while we love it we’re scared of it. Every new technological advance makes it easier to build something of destruction.”He related the Circus Maximus of ancient Rome to our forms of entertainment today. “People have to see a lot of things and are not satisfied with one,” Corigliano said. “It’s like the Circus Maximus; you have to constantly do something new, you flood the place and build naval battles on it. You put bears and lions and things in there and people and have them fight it out. Naturally you know who’s gonna win, but it’s enjoyable for the Roman audience because it’s exciting to see all that.”Corigliano said taking risks and breaking tradition is part of his job.“The role of the composer is the role of the future. We can speak about our times.”For more information on the festival, click visit TCU’s School of Music website.Listen to a Circus Maximus clip Facebook

In addition to this is the stateâ€™s obligation to increase the collegeâ€™s base funding by $3.1 million next year and its supposed future contribution of millions more to assist online classes, adult education, deferred maintenance, and other programs.However, “We won’t know until mid-August or so, at the earliest, exactly what funding will be made available to what programs and, just as important, when that money will be available,” the Pasadena Sun quoted Miller.Likewise, College President Mark Rocha said the expansion was “essentially a roll-over of the current budget” to keep the operation of the college until July.

Government City Council Authorizes Fire Department’s Request to Join New Training Entity By STEPHEN SICILIANO, Managing Editor Published on Tuesday, February 5, 2019 | 6:12 pm Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday On Monday, Feb. 4, the same day the City Council approved a request by Pasadena Fire Chief Bertral Washington for the Dept. to join a new regional training agency, the Pasadena Fire Dept. also welcomed its largest-ever class of recruits. Image courtesy Pasadena Fire Dept.The Pasadena City Council Feb. 4 approved a request by the Pasadena Fire Department for authorization to join a new government agency dedicated to training firefighters on a regional basis.The department had proposed joining what is known as the Los Angeles Regional Training Group – Joint Powers Authority, as the best way to maintain the status quo when it comes to seasoning its recruits.The City Council’s action authorized the pursuit of that membership.In recent years, the Pasadena Fire Department had been participating in the Regional Training Group (RTG), which coordinates exercises and operations on an extra-municipal basis, forging cooperation between neighboring city fire departments.A City staff report observed that outcomes from the effort, “have been remarkable in comparison to what independent fire departments can accomplish on their own.”The fly in the ointment has been that the RTG is dependent on funding from the federal Department of Homeland Security; funding that has been reduced by some $60 million over the past three years.The RTG needs government partners since the federal grants require application and administration by government agencies. As such, the RTG is transitioning to the status of government agency so that it can formulate its own applications and administer its own programs.The Pasadena Fire Department’s request was approved Feb. 4, first by the City’s public safety committee and later that day by the full City Council, based on an affirmative staff recommendation.Coincidentally, on the same day, the Pasadena Fire Department welcomed 17 new recruits, the largest such class in its history.

State Pollution Control Board, the Central Government, the brief holder for the State and Amicus Curiae (A.K. Gupta) on Tuesday (09th February) informed the Allahabad High Court that large quantity of untreated water is still flowing into the rivers and a huge amount of public money is getting wasted. The Bench of Justice Manoj Kumar Gupta, Justice Siddhartha Varma and Justice Ajit Kumar was further informed by the team that use of plastic bags is rampant in the city and the plastic waste which gets generated is choking the sewer lines. The team also informed the Court that:- The drains which are untapped and are being presently treated by process of bio-remediation are discharging foul smelling water. The Committee raised doubts about the very process of treating sewerage water by process of bioremediation. The report also specifically mentions that 50% of the existing nallas are still not connected with sewerage treatment plants, or if connected, are overflowing. It may be noted that this team of counsels personally visited the Sewage Treatment Plants and various ghats and have submitted their joint inspection report in compliance of Court’s previous order dated 28th January 2021. The Court also took into account the submission made by other parties including Officer Incharge, Magh Mela, Prayagraj. The Court also noted that there are repeated allegations that during night time, the STPs are shut down and the sewage water is directly discharged into the rivers. Regarding Magh Mela, the Court said, “We hope that during entire mela, a constant water level shall be maintained so that no difficulty is caused to the pilgrims taking dip in the holy rivers.” Lastly, the Court asked the Chairman, U.P. State Pollution Control Board to file his personal affidavit, making the following disclosures: – The interval at which water samples are taken for testing. It shall clearly be specified whether any water sample is taken after sunset and before sunrise. In this regard, the extract of relevant records maintained by the Board in last three months shall be brought on record. What is the procedure being followed by the Board to monitor discharge of effluents from STPs during night time. Whether the effluents are tested on the parameters laid down by the Central Pollution Control Board. The relevant records relating to testing of effluents from sewage treatment plants of last three months shall be brought on record. The relevant records relating to monitoring of the effluents from untapped nallas that are allegedly being treated by process of bio-remediation shall also be filed. The affidavit shall disclose the mode of monitoring the water discharge from such drains and whether the same meets the laid down standards or not. Further, the Court directed as under:- The Nagar Ayukt, Nagar Nigam, Prayagraj and the Officer Incharge, Magh Mela, Prayagraj shall file their personal affidavits disclosing further action taken by them in the meantime for ensuring compliance of the ban imposed by the State Government on use of plastic bags of thickness less than 50 microns. In order to implement the said direction, we hereby direct the Senior Superintendent of Police to provide all possible assistance to the Mela Authorities/Municipal Authority.All efforts should be made to cut the supply chain of plastic bags of thickness below the prescribed norms. Background of the Matter The Allahabad High Court last month sought responses from various State authorities in UP with respect to protection of river Ganga and the steps taken by it to ensure that the water quality of the river is not deteriorated. This order was made in a suo moto case registered by the High Court in the year 2006, to protect and restore the river. The matter came to be listed after an intervention was filed by Advocate Tripti Verma, claiming that water of rivers Ganga and Yamuna has deteriorated severely. Further, on 28th January, the Uttar Pradesh State Pollution Control Board told the Allahabad High Court that the water of river Ganga is not fit for drinking purpose.
