Brock prof wins provincial teaching award

After being nationally recognized for his teaching excellence earlier this year, David Hutchison is again being honoured for his efforts in the classroom.A professor in Brock’s Department of Educational Studies and Director of the Centre for Digital Humanities, Hutchison has been awarded a 2017-18 Teaching Award by the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations (OCUFA). OCUFA represents 17,000 faculty and academic librarians in 29 Ontario faculty associations. Since 1973, the OCUFA Teaching and Academic Librarianship Awards have recognized exceptional professors and librarians for their contributions to higher education in Ontario. Hutchison is one of five Teaching Award recipients from across Ontario this year.   “As a cross-appointed professor at Brock, it has been my privilege to observe so many diverse examples of teaching excellence amongst colleagues, working with students in groups — large and small — in-person and online,” Hutchison said.  “I really see this recognition as a tribute to how well Brock nurtures and values teaching excellence, especially teaching approaches which support experiential cross-program collaborations, which has been one of my goals.” Hutchison’s teaching efforts were widely recognized earlier this year. In February, he was awarded a 3M National Teaching Fellowship, one of Canada’s most prestigious awards for teaching excellence.  “David is an innovative instructor and through his teaching and mentoring of students contributes significantly to our students’ positive experiences and, more broadly, to Brock and the community,” said Michael Owen, Dean of the Faculty of Education. “As his colleagues, we celebrate this well-deserved recognition of his dedication and talent.” Hutchison and his fellow award recipients will be honoured at OCUFA’s 45th annual awards ceremony in Toronto on Saturday, Oct. 20. The ceremony will be hosted by the CBC’s Nana aba Duncan.  “David Hutchison challenges his students to test those perceptions of the world they might take for granted by comparing them against the diverse experiences of others,” said Professor Judy Bornais, Chair of OCUFA’s Award Committee.  “Through his teaching and the experiential learning opportunities he incorporates into his courses, he empowers students to feel like their work matters and that they can affect change.” read more

This NWSL Season Has Been Nuts Heres How We Forecast The Finish

As in many of our sports forecasts, each NWSL team’s rating is reverted toward the league average between seasons to account for factors such as changes in personnel and retirements. For the NWSL, two-thirds of a team’s rating from the previous season carries over into the new season; that amount is based on the first three seasons and is in line with other soccer leagues around the world (both men’s and women’s). This year’s results, however, may indicate that NWSL teams should be reverted further toward the league average each season. Or maybe this is just a crazy season. Only time (and more data) will tell. If at the start of the National Women’s Soccer League season you thought two-time defending champions FC Kansas City would be in third-to-last place just over halfway through the season or that two-time regular-season champions Seattle Reign FC would have almost as many losses as they did in their previous two seasons combined, you’re either psychic or your predictive abilities are far greater than ours.Before this year’s matches got underway, we built a model to forecast the league using the best information we had available: data from the three previous NWSL seasons. But because two of those years were dominated by Seattle and Kansas City, correctly predicting this year’s chaos in the league would have been very difficult. So with the table in tumult and the end of the regular season not far off, we thought this would be good time to update our initial predictions, see what’s changed and look ahead to which four teams are most likely to reach the playoffs this fall. Below is a table showing each team’s overall rating — made up of offensive and defensive components (higher is better for both) — as well as its projected win-loss-tie record and its chances of making the playoffs. Sky Blue97.299.494.57.36.95.82073 Kansas City103.696.1113.26.08.35.7521 TEAMOVERALLOFF.DEF.WLTPLAYOFFSFINALSWIN This year’s surprise standout, the Western New York Flash, has skyrocketed to the top of our table and now has the greatest chance of winning the NWSL championship — 37 percent — up from just a 5 percent chance before the season started. With the league’s top two goal scorers, Lynn Williams and Jessica McDonald (seven and six goals, respectively), the Flash are almost certain to earn a playoff spot. The Washington Spirit will likely grab another — our model gives them a 96 percent chance of making the playoffs.There’s a little less certainty for the third and fourth playoff spots. The Portland Thorns are currently in first place in the league, with 26 points, and have an 86 percent chance of making the postseason. But the team has lost their past two games, in part because several national team players have been absent as they prepare for the Olympics. So Portland may continue to fall in our rankings over the next month. The Chicago Red Stars’ chances of making the playoffs have remained about the same from our initial forecast — dropping to 46 percent from 47 percent — but a strong start to the season has given way to three losses in the past four games.The biggest shock this season, however, has undoubtedly been the rapid descent of the league’s top two teams, Seattle and Kansas City. Both teams were heavily favored in our initial predictions — with a 78 percent and 72 percent chance of making the playoffs, respectively — but at this point, it’s extremely unlikely that either team will earn a playoff berth. There are still six weeks of matches left, but both teams’ chances of winning the championship have plummeted more than 20 percentage points since the season started. read more

Ketamine should be kept off worldwide illegal drugs list doctors say

Ketamine is an essential anaesthetic and painkiller, especially in countries with limited options and poor storage facilities in their hospitals.Dr Jannicke Mellin-Olsen The powerful tranquiliser ketamine should be kept off a worldwide illegal drugs list despite it being abused by clubbers, doctors are arguing.They say it should always be treated as a medicine and not be placed under United Nations illicit drug restrictions The World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists is calling for global support for its initiative to protect ketamine’s status as an essential medicine for anaesthesia and pain relief.China and other countries which have a problem with ketamine abuse want the drug included on the UN schedule for controlled drugs.Dr Jannicke Mellin-Olsen, newly-elected WFSA President, spoke out at the group’s World Congress in Hong Kong.She said: “Ketamine is an essential anaesthetic and painkiller, especially in countries with limited options and poor storage facilities in their hospitals.”Ketamine is used as the sole available safe anaesthetic in many parts of the world and is widely used in adults and children alike.Experts say it is also easily transported in situations such as disasters, in which vital lifesaving surgery can take place at the scene of the disaster, even outside the hospital. But China and some other Asian countries, including Thailand, have problems with ketamine abuse. They want access to be restricted in the same way that morphine is a scheduled or controlled substance.The UN’s Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) has so far not submitted to their demands. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has reviewed ketamine use several times since 2004 when the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) first noted illicit use was a problem and encouraged countries to place the drug under controls.On each occasion, WHO has repeatedly warned that placing ketamine under international control would devastate access to safe surgery for billions.Dr Mellin-Olsen, who is based at Baerum Hospital in Norway, added: “Of course there are legitimate concerns about ketamine abuse, and these shouldn’t be discounted.”However, it also needs to be recognised that there is little to no evidence that abuse occurs in countries where it is the most essential anaesthetic.”The international drug control system has caused immense harm to access to medicines, and the system is still, today, out of balance.” WFSA has launched a “Ketamine is Medicine” campaign against the drug being subjected to international controls.Dr Mellin-Olsen added: “We call on the UN’s Expert Committee on Drug Dependence not to recommend any further restrictions on ketamine pending the collection of more reliable and complete data on the effects that this might have on the availability of this essential anaesthetic drug, and on patient outcomes around the world.”Associate Professor Philip Peyton, of Austin Hospital and the University of Melbourne in Australia, told the Congress: “Ketamine’s unique safety profile and effectiveness make it irreplaceable in anaesthetic practice.”However, concerns about ketamine’s recreational abuse have prompted international calls for its withdrawal.”This comes at an unfortunate time, as there is increasing interest in ketamine’s other potential therapeutic effects on chronic pain and postoperative delirium, which are now recognised as common and serious postoperative complications, as well as a possible emerging role in management of severe treatment-resistant depression.”Its unique value in the management of severe pain after surgery or trauma is now widely appreciated.” He added:”Much research still needs to be done to properly define the value of ketamine and its importance in clinical practice before any decisions about the future availability are made.”last_img read more

La Wii U devrait avoir son App Store

first_imgLa Wii U devrait avoir son App StoreChez Nintendo, l’héritière de la célèbre Wii, nommée Wii U, devrait certainement proposer l’équivalent d’un App Store pour le téléchargement de jeux ou d’applications pour la tablette tactile qui, rappelons-le, servira de manette.Nous connaissions déjà les plateformes Wiiware et DsiWare, sur la Wii et la Nintendo DSi, où l’on pouvait se procurer des jeux dématérialisés. Avec la Wii U (lien non disponible), le géant japonais du jeu vidéo souhaite  approfondir ce concept, à l’instar des services proposés par Apple (l’App Store) ou Google (l’Android Market). En effet, avec sa tablette de 6,2 pouces (15,5 cm de diagonale) disponible avec la console, la Wii U devrait avoir son lots d’applications spécifiques à son matériel, et ce, même si Big N avait précédemment annoncé que la tablette ne serait pas autonome… On attend donc avec impatience la prochaine présentation de la console pour en savoir davantage sur le contenue de ce Wii U Store et sur les possibilités offertes par ces manettes – tablettes.

Angry Birds Rio manages 10 million downloads in 10 days

first_imgIt seems that mobile phone users are still Angry Birds crazy and Rovio may have another hit on its hands. Through the developer’s Twitter account it was tweeted, “10 in 10:-) Angry Birds Rio breaking all records. A massive thanks to all our fans!!!!” That was a bit coded, so after some further investigation it became clear what Rovio meant was the new game has been downloaded over 10 million times in 10 days since its launch on March 22nd.Angry Birds Rio has introduced a number of firsts for its developer including the fact that the game is not traditional for the Angry Birds franchise. It is the first one created as a result of a partnership between Rovio and 20th Century Fox since the game is based on the animated movie RIO. Though you won’t find the Angry Birds characters in the new movie, you will find characters from the movie in the game. Angry Birds Rio breaks from previous games in that the goal is not to smash into pigs. The target for the birds this time is smuggled bird cages in a warehouse. As cages break, the birds within them fly to freedom.Rovio also took quite a bold move with the game when it came to the Android platform. When the developer ported its original Angry Birds game and Angry Birds Seasons to Android it introduced them to users through Google’s Android Marketplace. Rather than offering the game for $0.99 like it did on iTunes, the games were a free download, though players had to deal with ads while playing.When it came to the launch of Angry Birds Rio it seems that the Android Marketplace was not Rovio’s first choice. As a result, Amazon‘s Appstore for Android was the first to offer an ad-free version of the game. It is expected to eventually be offered as a $0.99 download, but for the moment Amazon has decided to offer it for free as part of a limited promotion.Read more at Mobile Entertainmentlast_img read more

Cotton computing goes live at Cornell textiles lab

Transistors are made from natural cotton fibers Explore further More information: Organic electronics on natural cotton fibres, Organic Electronics, Volume 12, Issue 12, December 2011, Pages 2033-2039.AbstractNanoscale modification of natural cotton fibres with conformal coatings of gold nanoparticles, deposition of thin layers of the conductive polymer poly(3,4-ethylenedioxithiophene) (PEDOT) and a combination of these two processes were employed to increase conductivity of plain cotton yarns. This innovative approach was especially designed to fabricate two classes of devices: passive devices such as resistors obtained from electrically conductive cotton yarns, and two types of active devices, namely organic electrochemical transistors (OECTs) and organic field effect transistors (OFETs). The detailed electrical and mechanical analysis we performed on treated cotton yarns revealed that they can be used as conductors still maintaining a good flexibility. This study opens an avenue for real integration between organic electronics and traditional textile technology and materials. (PhysOrg.com) — Researchers from France, Italy and the United States are weaving cotton with transistors for a new look in computing. Based on news about a lab at Cornell University, wearable computing is getting a new twist. Transistors made from cotton fibers are being explored at the Textiles Nanotechnology Laboratory at Cornell for use as clothing to collect, monitor and relay information. © 2011 PhysOrg.com Envisioned end uses could take form as clothes measuring pollutants, firefighters’ uniforms detecting dangerous chemicals, T-shirts displaying information, medical purposed garments monitoring heart rates and perspiration, as well as carpets in commercial environments measuring allergens or humidity.The group has come up with transistors made from cotton fibers. They use an approach that departs from the practice of attaching sensors or processors to fully formed garments. Instead, they are incorporating their information-retrieving devices directly into the fabric. The Textiles Nanotechnology Laboratory focus is on merging textile science with the emerging area of nanoscale science. In their work to make the fibers conductive, the team coated each strand with gold nanoparticles and with an additional thin layer of PEDOT, poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene), a conductive polymer.The fibers proved to be about one thousand times as conductive as plain cotton, and had slightly stiffer but more elastic qualities than untreated fibers, said reports. The team demonstrated the cotton’s conductivity by making a simple circuit; they knotted one end to a battery and the other to a light emitting diode (LED).Overall, said Annalisa Bonfiglio, a professor in the department of electrical and electronic engineering, University of Cagliari, Italy, whose student Giorgio Mattana worked on the cotton at the Ithaca lab, treating the cotton with these various substances is not very complicated, comparable to dyeing materials.For the immediate future, she added, the most realistic application of their research may be for use as wearable sensors.Juan Hinestroza, director of the Textiles lab at Cornell, said “pretty decent computing power” can be the result if one considers how many fibers in a T-shirt, for example, and how many interconnections there are between the weft and warp of the fabric.His work has not gone unnoticed by those seeing potential in new ways to integrate electronics with traditional textiles. Hinestroza has received funding from federal and state agencies as well as industrial consortiums for his explorations in how to create multifunctional fibers using nanoscale phenomena.While wearable sensors is the most practical near-term application, the more distant future (or perhaps back to the future) might extend elsewhere. Earlier this year, Hinestroza said, “Perhaps one day we can even build computers out of cotton fibers in a similar way as khipus -a recording device based on knots and used by the Inca empire in Peru.”last_img read more

How to Spring Clean Your Website With Content Auditing

first_imgMay 9, 2019 5 min read Hooray! It’s that time of year! Birds are chirping, flowers are blooming, sunshine is streaming; and hordes of people are taking the opportunity to clear out their cluttered closets and drawers, reorganize their stuff and give their homes a deep clean.Related: How to Make Your Small Business Website Really, Really EffectiveBut, did you know that your website needs a spring cleaning, too?Of course, you can’t physically dust off your website content to make it look shiny and new. But, nonetheless, you do need to give your website content the proverbial spring cleaning it deserves — with a content audit.Conducting a content audit can provide you actionable insights into what type of content is performing the best with your audience, improve your content’s return on investment (ROI) and improve your content-marketing strategy for the future. Plus, cleaning and organizing is good for you. According to a study reported by Psychology Today, people with clean houses are healthier than those with messy one. The same could be said for people with clean websites.So, to give your website a refresh, follow these steps outlining how to “spring clean” your website, using content auditing.Set clear goals.Before diving into your content audit, first set clear goals. Setting goals for your content audit will help you better determine which content is working well, what needs improving and updating and what needs to be retired. By keeping the goals of your content audit in mind, you’ll find it easier to get the big picture on your goals overall. For instance, in terms of your content audit, do you want to:Improve your SEO results?Increase audience engagement?Improve conversion rates?Depending on your goals, you can consider different criteria for each page or post. For instance, to improve SEO results, you’ll look over and optimize internal linking. To increase audience engagement, you’ll determine what topics your audience is most interested in. And, to improve conversion rates, you’ll identify the most efficient content for each stage of the buyer’s journey.Related: How to Create a Site Structure That Will Enhance SEOCreate a content inventory.Next, you’ll want to create an inventory of all your content. So, compile a list of all your URLs and put them in a spreadsheet. If your site is small, you can easily do this manually.But, if you have a ton of content on your website, this task might be more time-consuming, so consider delegating it to another employee in your company, or hire a freelancer to complete the task or use a crawling tool like Screaming Frog, which is free to use for up to 500 URLs. In the spreadsheet you create, list all the URLS in columns along with other details such as:Title of the contentType of content (blog post, landing page, product description)Date of publication or last modificationAuthor (if you have multiple authors on your site)Stage of the buyer’s journey (awareness, consideration, decision)Number of wordsMetadata (title, description)Metrics such as number of page visits, time spent on page, conversion rate, backlinks, shares, ranking for the main keywords, and so on.Then consult your analytics tool to discover all of the key metrics you need to know. As you build this list of your content inventory, you’ll be able to easily identify which content is underperforming.Assess your content and take action.Once you’ve taken inventory of all your content in an organized spreadsheet, it’s time to assess your content and take action. In this step, you’ll identify what content is performing well for you, what you need to change/update, what you can merge and what you can get rid of.Again, go back to the goals you set for your content audit. If your main goal is to improve conversions, you’ll mainly want to focus on metrics such as conversion rate and time spent on the page as well as what stage of the buyer’s journey your content is for.For instance, when filling out your spreadsheet you may notice that you have lots of content for the decision stage of the buyer’s journey and not enough for the consideration or awareness stages. You can then go ahead and start planning more content to guide users through each stage of the buyer’s journey or edit your existing content as needed.To make the process of assessing your content easier, create another column in your inventory spreadsheet to grade your content. You can use A,B,C,D grading or give your content a score from 1 to 5. If the content is performing well across all metrics, you can give it a top score. Other content that’s not performing as well can then be updated and tweaked to meet your goals.Related: 27 Ways to Increase Traffic to Your WebsiteOver to you”Spring cleaning” has never been more enjoyable, right? By cleaning your website using content auditing, you can enjoy increased organic traffic, a rise in audience engagement and a big boost in conversions.

2 Western photographers freed from Syria captivity

first_img Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates Top Stories His account would seem to add weight to reports that foreign Islamic fighters are going into Syria to support the rebel side.The Associated Press could not reach the men, who were expected to return home within days, for more details of their ordeal.Oerlemans told Business News Radio that he and Cantlie entered Syria on July 19, and were captured almost immediately.“You go with a donkey caravan over the border,” he said. “It went left, we went right and walked into a camp of 20 tents and in no time we had a circle of men around us with Kalashnikovs and we were taken captive.”The militants accused the men of working for the CIA and took their equipment and documents, he said.Oerlemans said it soon became clear that their captors planned to seek ransom, so the photographers tried to escape. They were quickly intercepted and Oerlemans was shot in the foot and thigh, he said. His captors bandaged his wounds but kept the two men handcuffed and blindfolded after that, he said.“I was wounded, but the bullets missed all the vital parts, and I’m frisky as a puppy and enormously happy that I’ve survived it all, that it ended well,” he said. On Friday morning they were told they would be moved to another location when a group of Syrian rebels stormed the tent and put the photographers in trucks.Suddenly four soldiers from the Syrian Free Army entered the camp and asked them how long they had been held.“They took us with them like a bunch of gangsters,” Oerlemans was quoted in a separate interview with NRC Handelsblad. “Shooting in the air we rode out of there.”Uri Rosenthal, the Netherlands’ foreign minister, said Dutch diplomats were traveling to Oerlemans to help him get home. The British Foreign Office cited privacy concerns in not commenting.Oerlemans is well-known in the Netherlands, having won two national photography awards.Cantlie’s LinkedIn page describes him as a freelance journalist and photographer with 20 years’ experience in “hostile environment reportage.” It says his clients have included British newspapers such as The Sunday Times, The Sunday Telegraph and The Sun; GQ and FHM magazines; and the BBC._____Associated Press reporter Raphael Satter contributed to this story from London.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

China loosens regulatory grip foreign airlines benefit

first_imgAs the government eases its enforcement of strict regulatory controls, China has witnessed double-digit booking growth for airlines across all reservation platforms.Since October foreign airlines have had the option of using global distribution systems, following a change in the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) Computerised Reservation System (CRS).This legislative adjustment has enabled a wider network of travel agents to book fares and access content.Previously, the state-controlled reservation system, TravelSky, possessed a near monopoly on the sale of any information technology solutions to the air travel industry.800 million new air travellers are expected to be flying from 2009 to 2014, with at least a quarter coming from China, providing enormous distribution and sales potential. The number of passengers on foreign airlines is growing and non-Chinese airlines account for more than half of the Chinese international flight market, according to CAAC.International bookings by foreign carriers for the China market are estimated to be 16 million this year.Despite this only being a small portion of the total China booking volume, this figure is expected to increase by 10-20 percent in the next few years.The CAAC regulation change provides airlines a choice when deciding on the right distribution partner.“One can choose to be proactive or reactive to these changes, but one thing is certain – being armed with the proper tools and a sense of readiness will give an airline the edge in supporting current and future moves by CAAC,” according to distribution company Abacus.

Northeast Sees Highest Property Taxes

first_imgNortheast Sees Highest Property Taxes Property Tax 2017-04-06 Seth Welborn April 6, 2017 546 Views in Daily Dose, Government, Headlines, Newscenter_img More than $277 billion in property taxes were levied on U.S. single-family homes in 2016—an average of $3,296 per property, according to a 2016 property tax analysis report released by ATTOM Data Solutions on Thursday.The analysis, which looked at property tax data collected from county tax assessors across the nation, broke down last year’s property taxes and estimated market values at the state-, metro-, and county-level. What it found was an effective national property tax rate of 1.15 percent levied against more than 84 million single-family homes in the U.S.But some geographic areas saw a much higher rate than that, with one state (New Jersey) clocking in with an effective property tax rate of 2.31 percent—more than twice the national average. Also on the high end of tax rates were Illinois (2.13 percent), Texas (2.06 percent), New Hampshire (2.03 percent), and Vermont (2.02 percent.) Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio, and Rhode Island weren’t far behind.At a metro level, the highest rates were seen in the Northeast. The Binghamton, New York, area saw the highest property tax rates at 3.10 percent.

Baker StreetArrive at Baker Street station by tube and exit one of the original stations of the Metropolitan Railway, the world’s first underground railway, opened in 1863. The first thing you’ll set your eyes on is Elementary, a statue of the world’s most famous detective, Mr. Sherlock Holmes. There’s a post here where you can stop to listen to interesting facts about the detective created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle – did you know that the original Sherlock never uttered the phrase “Elementary, my dear Watson”? Baker Street has become a shrine to its most famous fictional resident. Visit The Sherlock Holmes museum posing as 221b, but actually at 239 Baker Street open every day 9:30am to 6pm (admission £15, under 16s £10), where the offices of Holmes and Dr. Watson have been lovingly recreated, based on Sir Arthur’s stories. 5. SohoSoho is one of London’s most vibrant districts with an extremely colourful past. Greek Street is where you’ll find the House of St. Barnabas, built in 1846 for London’s destitute and homeless, and the inspiration behind Dr. Manette’s abode in Charles Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities. In fact, he got the character’s name from nearby Manette Street, which runs under The Pillars of Hercules pub. Further down Greek Street is The Coach and Horses pub, one of the many unspoiled, wood-lined writers’ pubs in Soho, and the place hangout of author and drinker Jeffrey Bernard. See the play Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell (there’s a great 1999 film version starring Peter O’Toole), and you’ll see a mock-up of The Coach and Horses’s interior. Another drinking den worth a look is The Dog and Duck, the spot where Karl Marx and George Orwell did most their drinking, whilst patrons of French House included Wyndham Lewis, Anthony Burgess and Dylan Thomas – the pub’s landlord had to intervene one day after a particularly heavy session and rescue Thomas’s Under Milk Wood manuscript when he left it on his seat! 6. Primrose HillThe Battenberg Cake style painted houses of Primrose Hill are reminiscent of Cherry Tree lane in Mary Poppins, written by P. L. Travers. Number 3 Chalcot Square has a plaque commemorating the tragic poet Sylvia Plath. She and Ted Hughes lived here before their marriage broke down. Plath then moved a short walk away to 23 Fitzroy Road, which has a plaque for the poet WB Yeats, a fact that greatly excited Plath. If you’re int he area then you should definitely climb to the top of Primrose Hill, where you’ll get an amazing panoramic view of London, and you’ll see the inscription by poet and artist William Blake: “I have conversed with the Spiritual Sun. I saw him on Primrose Hill”. At the bottom of the hill, you’ll find Regent’s Park Road, a beautiful little high street. The Queen’s pub was the local of Kingsley Amis. He was also fond of the restaurant, Odette’s, opposite. He lived at 194, in an unusual arrangement, in the attic, while his ex wife lived in the basement with her new husband. Make sure you’ve got your own sleeping arrangements sorted for your next stay in London with our guide to the best budget hotels and hostels in London. 8. Harry Potter WorldThis list wouldn’t really be complete without mentioning the biggest selling book series ever, penned by JK Rowling. Join the other muggles queuing to have their picture taken by the half-trolley sticking out of the wall at platform 9 ¾ at King’s Cross station, before stopping by the Harry Potter Shop (every day 8am–10pm) on the same platform to buy a bit of boy wizard paraphernalia. Super fans should head to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour(adults £35, children £27, open every day 9am–6.30pm) to step into movie sets from the blockbuster Harry Potter series, including the Great Hall, Dumbledore’s Office and Diagon Alley. If you’re not such a fan you’re bound to be won over after a trip on the Hogwarts Express and a butterbeer. Looking for more kid-friendly fun in London? Here are our picks of the best things to do in the capital when the weather’s not so hot. 7. ChelseaChelsea is a tale of two cities, so to speak; the fashion conscious present (on display along the King’s road, the main artery that runs through Chelsea) and its village-esque past. Go off any side street and the houses are centuries old and a wonderful hodgepodge of styles. These pretty back streets include Tite Street, which was home to Oscar Wilde, Mark Twain and AA Milne, author of much the loved children’s story Winnie-the-Pooh. Milne’s publisher recalls being at this address, watching Milne reading the story aloud while his son, Christopher Robin, played with the toys that had become characters in his stories. Along Cheyne Walk, you’ll find writers’ block, Carlyle Mansions; Henry James lived on the fourth floor, poet TS Eliot lived on the third floor, and it’s also where Ian Fleming, creator of James Bond, lived and wrote Bond’s first adventure Casino Royale. 2. HighgateHead north east of Hampstead Heath and you’ll find the charming London suburb of Highgate, where you can indulge in a spot of blue plaque hunting amongst the area’s grand Georgian houses – keep your eyes peeled for mentions of Dickens, John Betjeman, AE Housman, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and JB Priestley to name but a few. Score double points by picking out the house that Coleridge and Priestley both lived in (at different times) on The Grove, one of London’s most prestigious streets. These writers all drank in Highgate’s perfectly preserved old pubs, making it the perfect place for a literary pub crawl. Start at the The Wrestlers, then on to The Bull, followed by one in The Red Lion and Sun. By this stage you’ll be wandering along the High street, where you should visit The Gatehouse and The Prince of Wales. Leave this last establishment by the back door and walk through Pond Square, for one final swift half at William Hogarth’s regular, The Flask. For more of London’s top pubs and restaurants, check out this line-up. 9. Shakespeare’s GlobeShakespeare’s Globe was originally built in 1599, and then demolished in 1644. The reconstruction that stands today was founded by the American actor Sam Wanamaker. There were many local detractors but Wanamaker persevered in his vision for over twenty years, and a new Globe Theatre was eventually built near its original location on the Southbank. Built authentically with the help of historical advisors, the site also includes the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, a candle-lit, indoor theatre (which is much more practical in a rainy city like London). There is also an Exhibition about Shakespeare’s life and work, and regular tours of the two theatres. (Exhibition and Globe Theatre Tour £15, daily 9am to 5pm). 1. HampsteadJohn Keats and fellow Romantics spent a lot of time in Hampstead during the early nineteenth century, making it one of the most important literary hubs in London. Take a stroll through leafy Hampstead Heath and pay a visit to poet John Keats’s House (Tuesday to Sunday 1-5pm entrance £6.50), which has become a thriving museum dedicated not only to Keats but also to poetry in general. The gardens are darling, and it’s possible to sit under the tree where he was inspired to write Ode to a Nightingale. The literary reputation of Hampstead has a circular effect. John Keats and his contemporaries inspired DH Lawrence to move to the ‘Vale of Health’; a blue plaque commemorates where he lived with his wife, Frieda (1 Byron Villas, Vale of Health). But perhaps the best tribute you could make would be a pint of ale in one of Hampstead’s literary pubs. The Spaniards Inn is one of London’s oldest and most notorious pubs; Charles Dickens immortalised it in The Pickwick Papers and Keats himself wrote an ode or two here, it was also a famous watering hole for many infamous highwaymen including Dick Turpin. Today it caters to the discerning generation of brunch enthusiasts. If you’re looking for a more upmarket spot of lunch, brunch or afternoon tea, check out our guide to London’s best skyscraper restaurants. 3. BloomsburyA walk in Bloomsbury will be at the top of many literary lover’s lists; especially if they’re fans of Virginia Woolf, EM Forster, Lytton Strachey and the rest of the famous ‘Bloomsbury set’. There are blue plaques on every street in this historic quarter of London, which hasn’t changed much for three centuries. Gordon Square is most closely connected to this group of artists and thinkers. In fact, they lived in so many of the houses here that there’s just a single plaque to cover all of the houses that the Bloomsbury Group lived in. RelatedLondon’s 10 best parks and green spacesLondon boasts a surprising number of green spaces, and every park has a character of its own: from family-friendly Battersea Park with its children’s zoo, to history-packed Greenwich Park, home of the Prime Meridian.

Cyprus and Austria sign MoU for cooperation in military matters

first_imgCyprus and Austria have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on cooperation in military matters.The MoU was signed during a meeting on Thursday between Defence Minister Christoforos Fokaides and his Austrian counterpart Hans Peter Doskozil in Nicosia.The two ministers described the MOU as a tangible demonstration of the common will of the two countries to deepen relations in the interests of peace and stability.In statements after the meeting, Fokaides paid tribute to the three Austrian soldiers of UNFICYP who by fulfilling their duty with self-denial and responsibility lost their lives during the Turkish invasion of 1974.He also said that the government and the people of Cyprus were thankful for Austria`s practical help and longstanding principled stance on the Cyprus issue.He said he had briefed his Austrian counterpart on the latest developments in the talks. “Unfortunately, the general observation is that the latest developments in Turkey move the country away from Europe and the rules imposing compliance with international law,” he added.Speaking through an interpreter, Doskozil said information exchange and cooperation with European partners was essential for Austria, especially given the  current state of affairs on political security issues such as terrorism and immigration.He said Cyprus was a partner in this respect, which made the MoU very important in the context of deepening bilateral relations between the defence ministries of Cyprus and Austria.“We have developed cooperation in two main areas, crisis management and military education,” he said, adding that the two countries need to work more closely in the fields of security and defence as well as in military training and in joint exercises.”You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppGet Maximum Privacy with Minimum EffortFigLeaf Beta AppUndoTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionOne Thing All Liars Have in Common, Brace YourselfTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionUndoTotal Battle – Online Strategy GameIf You’re PC User This Strategy Game Is A Must-Have!Total Battle – Online Strategy GameUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoTwo arrested in connection with attempted murderUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img
