Sir Jackie Stewart launches foundation to fund dementia research

She can be reached via AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis27 Sir Jackie Stewart launches foundation to fund dementia research Tagged with: brand design trusts and foundations Sir Jackie Stewart has launched a foundation aimed at funding research towards a cure for dementia and searching for preventative medicine.Race Against Dementia was launched following Sir Stewart’s wife’s diagnosis of Alzheimer’s, with WPP’s global brand strategy and design agency, Brand Union, appointed to develop a clear positioning; name and visual identity for the brand.Brand Union began by creating the name Race Against Dementia, bridging the gap between Sir Jackie’s past and the urgency of the charitable cause.The second stage involved creating a bold brand identity that would express the charity’s story. Brand Union created the brand’s logo through a graphic fragmentation of the letter D that aims to highlight the distortion and disorientation experienced by those suffering from dementia, whilst also drawing on the speed and thrill of motorsport.Alongside this, Brand Union developed a visual language to provide a foundation for the whole brand. This includes a custom-designed typeface (named ‘Helen’) created in partnership with font foundry Colophon, that expresses the visual fragmentation of the logo; a toolkit for photographic treatment using an archive of photos from Sir Jackie and Lady Helen’s life; and a colour palette that picks up Sir Jackie’s Scottish heritage and the colour of his cars, French Racing Blue.Sir Jackie Stewart said:“It’s my ambition to raise as much awareness around this debilitating condition as possible. Brand Union understood this from the offset and it’s this understanding that has resulted in a foundation people can engage with, relate to and understand. I hope through this initiative we’re able to fund the research that’s critical to finding a cure for dementia.”  177 total views,  1 views today Advertisement  178 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis27 Melanie May | 22 July 2016 | Newslast_img read more

Brazil’s “fake news“ bill poses major threat to freedom to inform

first_img BrazilAmericas Online freedomsProtecting sources InternetFreedom of expression Receive email alerts News Alarm after two journalists murdered in Brazil News RSF_en News June 25, 2020 Brazil’s “fake news“ bill poses major threat to freedom to inform BrazilAmericas Online freedomsProtecting sources InternetFreedom of expression Organisation Follow the news on Brazil Source: MyCyberSecurity center_img April 15, 2021 Find out more The proposed “Brazilian Law on Internet Freedom, Responsibility and Transparency” (Draft Law No. 2.630/2020), which has the professed aim of addressing the “fake news industry” in Brazil, has been debated hastily and in exceptional conditions because of the coronavirus pandemic.It is finally scheduled to go before the senate today after a vote was postponed twice earlier this month as a result of pressure from many civil society groups including RSF and differences among parliamentarians. The bill’s extremely worrying measures include the creation of a system of massive surveillance of Internet users and disproportionate penalties that directly threaten freedom of expression and opinion and respect for online privacy.Its most disturbing elements include:The requirement for all social media and messaging app users to submit identity documents and have an active mobile phone. In practice, this will deprive many Brazilians of access to these basic services.The requirement for platforms to store data, and for messaging app providers to store chats and shares, for at least four months. This means that anyone (a journalist, researcher, parliamentarian, ordinary citizen and so on) who shared and/or criticized suspicious content could later have to prove they have no connection with the organizations or individuals who deliberately and massively shared false information.The goal of these two requirements is to be able to track the origin of disinformation campaigns and to identify and punish those responsible. The tracking of content shared on messaging apps could seriously endanger the confidentiality of journalists’ sources.The imposition of this surveillance mechanism would force platform and messaging app companies to adopt measures limiting protection for the privacy of those using their services, without guaranteeing that those behind disinformation campaigns could not circumvent these measures.Harsher penalties for spreading false informationThe criteria used for identifying false information are deliberately vague and are based on overly broad concepts such as “political preference” and threats to “social peace” or “economic order.” This opens the door to disproportionate interpretations and sanctions against legitimate opinions and posts.Nationwide blocking of social media and messaging apps that do not comply with the new requirementsServices such as WhatsApp and YouTube were recently suspended by the judicial authorities in Brazil. This is inappropriate and counter-productive, amounting to attempted censorship, and prejudices all users, by denying them access to information.Blocking messaging apps also hampers the work of journalists, especially those who rely on their encryption technology to protect their sources.“Instead of being debated in haste, such an important subject as disinformation requires extensive consultation with all the civil society stakeholders involved,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America bureau. “Brazil’s parliamentarians cannot ignore the threat that this bill poses to the future of online freedoms and democracy in general.”“The insistence with which the senate is trying to pass this bill, while Brazil is badly hit by the Covid-19 pandemic and attacks against journalists are intensifying, is very worrying. We call for this bill to be abandoned in its current form and for a proper debate to be held on this subject, in order to get a new bill that respects free speech standards and all Internet users’ right to privacy.”Regulations of this kind can have very negative consequences. RSF is registering more and more cases of journalists throughout the world who are being prosecuted in the name of combatting online disinformation, when in fact they were just doing their job.Penalizing “fake news” also amounts to eliminating the right of journalists to make mistakes. Some laws provide for extremely harsh penalties that take no account of journalists’ intentions, that take no account of the fact that journalists sometimes just make mistakes. In all cases, the punishment is not proportional to the information, even when it is false.To combat online disinformation, RSF recommends that the Brazilian authorities should promote self-regulatory mechanisms such as the Journalism Trust Initiative which encourage adoption of the best journalistic standards and ethics online.Launched by RSF and its partners, the JTI is a set of standards for reliable journalism with indicators that allow individual media outlets to assess themselves, to improve their practices to satisfy the standards, and to publish their evaluation results. The standards range from transparency of media ownership and revenue sources to correction procedures and other good practices.Platforms can incorporate the JTI’s machine-readable standards as an “integrity factor” into their algorithms. Search engine and social media algorithms are based on many factors but not, at this time, on compliance with editorial practices and basic journalistic principles.Brazil is ranked 107th out of 180 countries and territories in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies May 13, 2021 Find out more Reports Help by sharing this information April 27, 2021 Find out more to go further RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the withdrawal of a bill to combat “fake news” that could be voted by the Brazilian senate today, because it contains a series of measure that pose a major threat to the freedom to inform and to privacy rights. A new bill that respects international free speech standards should be drafted after extensive public consultation, RSF says. last_img read more

RSF deplores Thailand’s censorship of New York Times

first_img Receive email alerts June 12, 2020 Find out more News Follow the news on Thailand Covid-19 emergency laws spell disaster for press freedom Organisation May 12, 2021 Find out more News News For the second time in a week, a New York Times article was replaced by a blank space in the newspaper’s Thai version by its local printer on 4 December. The latest article to be censored was an op-ed piece by Bangkok-based journalist Tom Felix Joehnk. Headlined “The Thai Monarchy and Its Money,” it called for reform of the Crown Property Bureau, an agency that manages the royal family’s business assets. They constitute Thailand’s biggest corporate group and, at the same time, one of its most secretive ones.—————-Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is appalled to learn that yesterday’s issue of the International New York Times appeared with blank spaces on its front page and page 6 in Thailand because its local printer, Eastern Printing PCL, refused to print a story about Thailand’s economic woes.In the blank areas where the article by reporter Thomas Fuller should have appeared, readers found this message: “The article in this space was removed by our printer in Thailand. The International New York Times and its editorial staff had no role in its removal.”Headlined “Thai spirits sagging with the economy,” the article can nonetheless be read on the New York Times website. It describes the Thai military junta’s difficulties in reviving the economy despite the promises to make this a priority that the military gave at the time of their coup d’état in May 2014.“We condemn this article’s removal from Thai edition of the International New York Times, a new example of the taboos imposed by the junta on local and international media and the widespread self-censorship by media companies,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific desk.“The policy of suppressing information must stop at once. It is responsible for some of the economic problems encountered by Thailand and reported in the media. By preventing the publication of economic analyses, the government is just compounding the problems. Has the prime minister never heard of the Streisand effect ?”The same Thai printing company refused to print the entire issue of the International New York Times Asian edition on 22 September because of a 1,300-word article about King Bhumibol’s ailing health and the questions hanging over the royal succession – a highly sensitive subject in Thailand.It is one of many taboos in Thailand, which is ranked 134th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index and where the range of subjects that are off limits expanded after the 2014 coup and can now include anything remotely to do with politics.On 12 November, Reporters Without Borders released a report about the situation of the media in Thailand 18 months after the coup. Entitled “Media hounded by junta since 2014 coup,” it urges the Thai authorities to stop using the threat of lèse-majesté charges and to repeal all draconian media legislation, including article 112 of the criminal code, the criminal defamation law and the Computer Crimes Act. to go furthercenter_img ThailandAsia – Pacific Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar ThailandAsia – Pacific News Red alert for green journalism – 10 environmental reporters killed in five years August 21, 2020 Find out more RSF_en Help by sharing this information December 2, 2015 – Updated on March 8, 2016 RSF deplores Thailand’s censorship of New York Timeslast_img read more

The seder tells the story of the liberation of the ancient Israelites with symbolic foods and rituals.But with social distancing guidelines in place to help control the spread of the coronavirus, many local Jews are finding different ways to celebrate Passover.Some families and congregations are holding virtual Seders via Zoom and Facebook or scaling back their plans.The Pasadena Jewish Temple and Center is sending out an emailed video containing tips and guidance. Members can also hold a virtual Seder at Zushi Rivkin said this year the Chabad of Pasadena will not be able to hold its annual communal Seder which has been attended every year by one hundred people.“Everybody looks forward to it we do all the traditions together. Obviously this year we cannot provide that. So what we’ve done is we’ve essentially told the community, ‘Listen, we wish we could invite you. To be honest, this will be the first time in 16 years that I will be hosting my own Seder at home privately. I’m usually out there hosting a communal Seder, sharing my thoughts with the town.”According to the Torah, after many decades of slavery to the Egyptian pharaohs, during which time the Israelites were subjected to backbreaking labor and unbearable horrors, God sent Moses to the Pharaoh to liberate his people.Moses delivered a powerful message: “Send forth my people, so that they may serve Me.”Despite numerous warnings, the Pharaoh refused to heed God’s command. God then sent upon Egypt ten devastating plagues, afflicting them and destroying everything from their livestock to their crops.At the stroke of midnight of 15 Nissan in the year 2448 from creation (1313 BCE), God visited the last of the ten plagues on the Egyptians, killing all their firstborn. While doing so, God spared the Children of Israel, “passing over” their homes, hence the name of the holiday. Pharaoh’s resistance was broken, and he virtually chased his former slaves out of the land.The Israelites left in such a hurry, in fact, that the bread they baked as provisions for the way did not have time to rise. Six hundred thousand adult males, plus many more women and children, left Egypt on that day and began the trek to Mount Sinai and their birth as God’s chosen people.center_img STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday HerbeautyAmazing Sparks Of On-Screen Chemistry From The 90-sHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Strong Female TV Characters Who Deserve To Have A SpinoffHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyHere Is What Scientists Say Will Happen When You Eat AvocadosHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThese Are 15 Great Style Tips From Asian WomenHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyCostume That Makes Actresses Beneath Practically UnrecognizableHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Lies You Should Stop Telling Yourself Right NowHerbeautyHerbeauty faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes 108 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Subscribe Faith & Religion Events Passover Traditions Adapt to COVID-19 Lockdowns STAFF REPORTS Published on Wednesday, April 8, 2020 | 3:30 am Top of the News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

Opec+ agrees to ten million barrels per day production cut

first_imgHowever, Mexico did not agree to the reductions in crude oil production, making the agreement conditional on its consent Opec+ members with the exception of Mexico agree on cutting crude oil production in 2020 (Credit: DALIBRI/ The Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec) and its allies have reached a deal to cut crude oil production by ten million barrels per day (bpd) for the months of May and June amid the falling demand for the commodity caused by the coronavirus pandemic.In the following six months, from 1 July 2020 until the year end, the total adjustment in crude oil production has been agreed to be eight million bpd.According to Opec, the baseline for calculating the adjustments is the oil production in October 2018, with the exception of Saudi Arabia and Russia which had the same baseline level of 11 million bpd.The decisions are part of the various measures taken up by the Opec members and non-Opec members which took part in what is the 9th (Extraordinary) Opec and non-Opec Ministerial Meeting. Mexico rejects crude oil production cutsHowever, Mexico, which participated in the meeting, did not agree to the measures. As a result, the agreement reached by the other countries will be conditional on the consent of Mexico.Opec, which is an intergovernmental organisation comprising 13 member nations, said that the agreement will be valid until 30 April 2022.An extension of the agreement will be reviewed during December 2021, said the organisation, which is currently based in Vienna, Austria.Saudi Arabia energy minister Prince Abdul Aziz Bin Salman chaired the webinar, with Russia’s minister of energy Alexander Novak acting as co-chairman.Argentina, Colombia, Indonesia, Norway, Ecuador, Egypt, Trinidad and Tobago and the International Energy Forum (IEF) were welcomed as observers.The meeting also appealed to all the major oil-producing nations to contribute to the efforts aimed at stabilising market.Opec said in a statement: “In the meeting, the Opec and non-Opec oil-producing countries participating in the Declaration of Co-operation, reaffirmed their continued commitment to achieve and sustain a stable oil market, the mutual interest of producing nations, the efficient, economic, and secure supply to consumers, and a fair return on invested capital.”The participating countries in the meeting are scheduled to meet again on 10 June 2020 to determine further measures that are required to balance the market.last_img read more

Use-by dates shaken up by Warburtons

first_imgWarburtons has become one of the first brands to simplify on-pack dates.The plant baker has removed its ‘display until’ code and will now only include a single ‘best before’ date on all its products in a bid to stop confusion around on-pack consumption advice.It has pre-empted Food Standards Agency (FSA) guidance, which is due to be revised in September as a way to help food businesses become more consistent and improve consumer confidence.The FSA looked at replacing the current system with a simple ‘use-before’ date – the only piece of information that offers a safety cut-off point, and a consultation with the industry ended last month.A Warburtons spokesman said: “We have made this move based on customer feedback and the fact that some confusion existed with consumers on the use of display-until dates. Warburtons remains committed to baking high-quality, fresh bakery products and we hope this change will make it clearer for consumers buying bakery products in-store.”Under EU food law, pre-packed food must carry either ‘best before’ or ‘use by’ date marks, and it is up to food manufacturers to decide what to put on products.last_img read more
