The Trussell Trust , which supports food banks that provide three days emergency supplies to people in need, said today 355,985 people had been helped between May and September this year, compared with 113,570 in the same period last year. It wrote to Prime Minister David Cameron requesting an inquiry. The level of food poverty in the U.K. is not acceptable. Its scandalous and it is causing deep distress to thousands of people, Trussell Trust Executive Chairman Chris Mould said in an e-mailed statement. The time has come for an official and in-depth inquiry into the causes of food poverty and the consequent rise in the usage of food banks. Food prices have risen by 12.6 percent more than inflation over the past six years, outstripping wages, and higher energy prices are likely to see more people forced to choose between eating and heating this winter, the charity said. Food-bank clients are giving back food items that need cooking because they cant afford to turn on the electricity, the trust said. There are twice as many food banks as last year, accounting for some of the increase in demand, the trust said, though well-established food banks are also reporting that theyre helping more people. Welfare Overhaul An overhaul of the welfare system has led more people to seek help, the trust said, with 117,442 people referred to food banks by agencies including the health service, social workers and police because of delays in welfare payments compared with 35,597 last year. Camerons spokesman, Jean-Christophe Gray, said the increase had been driven by the government axing restrictions on officials referring people to food banks and reflected a British tradition of charitable help for the poor. Use of the facilities increased 10 times under the Labour government that left office in 2010, he added. Its this government that has lifted the block on job centers being able to point people in the direction of the type of additional assistance that food banks provide, Gray told reporters in London . The U.K.
If you’re grossed out enough to say sayonara to fast food all together (virtual high five!), I have several still quick, but much healthier alternatives. Healthy Fast Food Alternatives Supermarket smorgasbord Grocery stores are generally in the same vicinity as fast food joints. So rather than pulling into a drive-through, pop into the supermarket and stroll through the express line. Most chains now have prepared food sections, with ready-to-eat options like chilled vegetable salads and grilled salmon. Other healthy items that don’t require prep include baby carrots and hummus, mini bananas, and nuts. Healthy Fast Food Alternatives Fast casual The concept of fast casual is ‘fresh food fast,’ and establishments that fit the bill, including Chipotle, Panera Bread, and Pei Wei are popping up all over. Many of these restaurants serve up freshly prepared dishes, made-in-house, with ingredient lists that read like a recipe from a healthy cookbook. For example, the chicken at Chipotle is made from hormone and antibiotic free chicken, water, chipotle chili, rice bran oil, cumin, garlic, oregano, black pepper, and salt. (Note: according to the web site, some cities use soybean oil.) To be sure of what you’re getting, hop online, check out the nutrition facts, and always read ingredient lists. One of my favorite go-tos is a Chipotle salad, made with Romaine lettuce, fajita veggies, black beans, mild salsa, and guacamole. Super satisfying, and about as quick and clean as it gets. Healthy Fast Food Alternatives Pack a meal If you tend to be stuck with lesser-of-various-evil options, invest in an insulated lunch sack, and toss in a meal you can whip up in a jiffy. For example, in a sealable container, combine a few handfuls of veggies, like grape tomatoes, chopped red onion, baby spinach leaves, and sliced mushrooms, and a small scoop each of quinoa and chickpeas. Sprinkle with Italian herb seasoning, drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, close the lid, give it a shake, and toss it in the bag.
Fines Seen Last month, Belkacem, 36, whos also the spokesman for the government of President Francois Hollande, introduced a wide-ranging draft law that would fine companies that fail to meet standards for equality between the sexes up to 1 percent of their total payroll per month. The law would ban non-compliant companies from bidding on public contracts. It also includes a measure to offer fathers a six-month paternity leave. Mothers already have state-mandated leave in France. Female executives attending the Deauville Forum welcomed the rankings. Having objectives is very important, said Mouna Sepehri, executive vice president in the office of the chief executive officer at Renault SA. (RNO) The carmaker has set a target of 30 percent for recruiting women engineers, for instance, based on the fact that about 30 percent of engineering graduates are women. So far, the company is at 27 percent, Sepehri said. Renault came in at No. 46 in the ranking. Board Quotas France required large companies to have non-executive women account for at least 20 percent of board members by 2014, and 40 percent by 2017. We have more women on boards, thanks to the quota, said Virginie Morgon, chief investment officer of investment firm Eurazeo SA. We have to translate this to the executive level. Morgon sits on the boards of hotelier Accor SA (ranked No. 9) and LOreal SA (No. 37).
Nevertheless, Fitch believes IDF would be able to maintain above- average operating performance, with the current margin above 20% by 2015, due to adequate revenue resources underpinned notably by fuel tax and office creation fee. IDF has some operating expenditure flexibility. In 2012, transfers represented 72.5% of total operating expenditure, 32% of which was a statutory operating grant to the regional transport authority, Syndicat des Transports d’Ile-de-France (STIF). The end of the current administration’s term in 2015 should translate into a stabilisation of capital expenditure in 2013-2014, at EUR1.6bn per year, mainly related to transportation upgrades and partly debt- funded. In 2012, IDF self-financed 77% of its capital expenditure excluding debt repayment. Fitch expects IDF will maintain its high self-financing capacity at above 75% in the medium term. Despite a rise in debt, debt coverage ratios are strong. At end-2012, direct debt accounted for 5.8 years of current balance and 127% of current revenue while the operating margin covered 5.5x interest payment. Fitch forecasts the debt payback ratio will stay below the negative rating threshold of 8 years over the medium term. Guaranteed debt is almost negligible. The region’s largest satellite entity is STIF. STIF currently has low debt but is expected to take on debt in the medium term of up to EUR900m to finance the renewal and expansion of rolling stock. The region has advanced IT infrastructure, a financial management framework and exercises tight control over its multi-annual commitments. IDF’s financial projections are conservative and its debt management is strong. RATING SENSITIVITIES A downgrade of Republic of France’s IDR would lead to a downgrade of IDF’s ratings.
They killed two pirates but also accidentally shot dead Lemacon during the operation. The three accused — Mohamed Mahamud, Abdelkader Osman Ali and Mahamud Abdi Mohamed, aged between 26 and 31 — have been on trial since Monday. During the trial, the three accused had said they turned to piracy out of desperation and expressed regret at their actions. “What they want is not even to live but just to survive,” said one of their lawyers, Fabian Lahaie. For his client, piracy “was a job as any other”, he said. A lawyer for the survivors, Arnaud Colon de Franciosi, said they were not looking “for vengeance” but that the accused should be “held responsible” for their acts. Former French Defence Minister Herve Morin said Wednesday that “poverty does not justify everything”. The families have not criticised soldiers involved in the raid, but have accused the French government of authorising the “dangerous operation” without enough regard for the hostages. In this case “French state leaders decided to teach the piracy masterminds on the continent a lesson”, argued Colon de Franciosi. “I believe that Florent Lemacon died for reasons of national interest. This operation was meant as a powerful signal to the Somalis, while the hostages were put on the backburner.” The Lemacons had left the northwestern French port of Vannes in 2008 for a journey to Zanzibar. They were taken hostage on April 6, 2009 off the Somali coast. France has taken a tough line on pirates caught by its forces in the waters off east Africa, where dozens of mainly merchant vessels have been seized and held for ransom in recent years. Society & Culture For more than 200 years, skeptics have been announcing the end of the great age of species discoveryand the end, in particular, for finding anything really big.
Jack Lang, a Socialist former culture minister who heads the Arab World Institute in Paris, said Friday that it was filing a legal complaint against unspecified culprits for damages after the incident at its gleaming Left Bank building. No one was injured in the melee on Wednesday, he said. “A band of apparently pro-Morsi militants infiltrated (the conference) and took seats up front,” said Lang, who was in his office nearby at the time. “I don’t know exactly what was said, but insults were exchanged … they (protesters) shook the table and one succeeded in breaking a window with I-don’t-know what.” Video posted online showed protesters pushing through French listeners in the audience, and hurling objects at al-Aswany, and the sound of breaking glass. He left through a back door on the stage and an exit in the floor behind it, and the appearance was cancelled. Al-Aswany gave cautious early backing to Morsi after his election victory, but supported the Egyptian military’s decision to remove him this summer. Morsi’s supporters have protested against the military-backed interim government and its crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood the Islamist network that counts Morsi as a leader. “They came to the lecture to take revenge,” the author said by telephone from the southern city of Marseille, where he was promoting the French translation of “The Automobile Club,” his latest book. “As a novelist, I was prevented from speaking about literature in France … this is regrettable.” Over the years, al-Aswany has variously criticized the military and former President Hosni Mubarak, whose ouster in Egypt’s revolution in 2011 paved the way for Morsi’s rise to power. Al-Aswany and many other supporters of the revolution, however, grew dismayed as Morsi and his Islamist allies tried to consolidate power and violently crack down on dissent leading them to support the army’s overthrow of the Muslim Brotherhood leader.
Bloggers create kind of a popularity. But they are not the experts and we have to understand that.” (She also took what many perceive to be a dig at Gwyneth Paltrow when she said, among other things, “[Gwyneth] wants to be a lifestyle arbiter…. I think I started this whole category of lifestyle.”) Now, we will admit that there are some renegade bloggers out there, but it’s the self-correcting law of the blogosphere that no-nothing bloggers get all the influence they deserve. And we share Martha’s affinity for recipe testing since the L.A. Times Test Kitchen obsessively tests and retests all its recipes before publication. But, seriously, Martha? No caveat for bloggers who are, indeed, experts in food, fashion and lifestyle? No caveat for the legion of food bloggers who take great care in testing and crafting recipes to make sure they’re just as good as a recipe out of Martha Stewart’s kitchen? (One food blog, for example, that has never, ever let us down? Simply Recipes .) We expect more nuance from you, Martha. The remarks are especially surprising given that food and lifestyle bloggers make up one of Martha’s core constituencies. True, food bloggers might not be her core voting bloc — that likely belongs to civilian women and men who try to bring a little bit of Martha’s magic into their everyday lives. But food and lifestyle bloggers help endlessly to promote Martha by using their platforms to make her recipes and crafts — such as Halloween cupcakes accented with shards of broken “glass” or marzipan pumpkin petits fours in the shape of skulls and coffins — and then sharing them with their blog’s readers. The reaction is exactly what you’d expect it to be in the online blogging world.

The U.K. has a proud tradition of voluntary and charitable organisations providing additional support alongside the welfare system. The previous government stopped job centers, where job seekers register for unemployment benefit and seek work, issuing vouchers for food banks because they said other help was available and they could not provide consistent support as they were unevenly distributed around the country. Food-bank use increased from 2,814 people in 2005-2006 to 40,898 in 2009-2010, when Labour lost power, the Trussell Trust said. Food banks supported by the charity were used by 346,992 people in 2012-2013.
EDT October 18, 2013 The prize went to three researchers who played prominent roles in developing genetically modified crops.

(Photo: Charlie Litchfield, The Des Moines Register) Story Highlights Ceremony at Iowa Capitol draws protesters Mary-Dell Chilton of Syngenta, Robert T. Fraley of Monsanto, Marc Van Montagu of Belgium honored Chilton calls opposition to GMOs ‘misguided’ SHARE 7 CONNECT 45 TWEET COMMENTEMAILMORE DES MOINES, Iowa — This year’s World Food Prize laureates called on a hungry world to embrace the seeds they helped develop, despite controversy that threatens to limit the reach of biotech crops. Three researchers who played prominent roles in developing genetically modified crops Mary-Dell Chilton of Syngenta, Robert T. Fraley of Monsanto and Marc Van Montagu of Belgium were awarded the World Food Prize on Thursday at the Iowa Capitol. The music- and history-filled ceremony highlighted the prize’s biggest and most controversial week yet. “My hope is this will put to rest the misguided opposition” to the crops, Chilton said after receiving the award. She called genetically modified organisms a “wonderful tool” in the fight against hunger. Fraley emphasized the necessity of the seeds in addressing “the greatest challenge the world faces” feeding a global population that will grow by a third by 2050. But he said Monsanto and the industry have struggled to explain their importance and safety. He called on the public, universities and nonprofits to help change that. “I can promise that my company will do what it takes.
At 23 years old, Wheeler is the youngest of that quartet. Niese is 26, and Gee and Hefner are 27. Each has a seemingly bright upside. On that note, the Mets have a couple of other young, very talented prospects they could soon add, in 20-year-old Noah Syndergaard and 23-year-old Rafael Montero, each of whom shined at New York’s home ballpark at Citi Field, during the 2013 Futures Game in July. To hold things down for next year without Harvey, the Mets might be able to round out the final spot in their starting staff with one of two veterans they signed late in the 2013 season — either Daisuke Matsuzaka, who after three poor starts as a Met, was impressive in winning his final four starts for New York, or Aaron Harang, who was fairly good over four starts after Alderson signed him in September. But Offensive Upgrades Are Sorely Needed Where Alderson will need to improve the Mets the most is in their lineup. While he praised David Wright and Daniel Murphy as being championship-caliber players, he also noted New York’s desperate need to improve at a few other everyday positions. “You can’t go into the season with three or four below average positions,” he said. “You can’t get by with multiple positions that way.” To upgrade those areas, Alderson will likely have to turn to free agency this winter, but he’s also not adverse to seeing what the open market might return for a player such as the Mets’ disappointing 26-year-old first baseman Ike Davis, who at one time showed much promise. Finally With Money to Spend Again, the Shorter Term Moves Into Focus Despite the obvious and numerous offensive holes to fill, Alderson believes New York has a good foundation on which to build. “The platform from my standpoint is not that bad,” he said. “We’ve got a decent place from which to start.” And with money finally coming off of the Mets’ books, they should be in a position to spend like they haven’t been able to in quite some time. Thus, even with Harvey set to miss the entire 2014 season, Alderson was optimistic that the winds of change will blow through Flushing sooner rather than later — and that for the first time in a long time, Mets fans can start thinking about their team contending next season instead of solely building something better for much further down the road. “I think we’re going to have enough [money] available to make significant improvements, no question about that,” Alderson said.
He says he was part of the motorcycle ride that ended with an attack on the driver of an SUV. Undercover police officer Matt Rodriguez, 28, has worked in plainclothes fighting crime in New York City’s subways and was recently assigned to an elite undercover unit in Internal Affairs, the New York Police Department unit that fights police corruption. But when CBS News met Rodriguez at the district attorney’s office Tuesday, he was the one on the hot seat, CBS News senior correspondent John Miller reported on “CBS This Morning” Wednesday. NYC motorcycle road rage incident may have ruined a large investigation Rodriguez and his lawyer, Pat Bonanno, emerged from a meeting with prosecutors after more than an hour of discussions over the case of the motorcycle assault against SUV driver Alexian Lien in front of his wife and child. Rodriguez said he had nothing to do with the assault. Miller asked Rodriguez, “How hard has this been going through this, especially with all the attention?” Rodriguez said, “It has been difficult, but I can only take it one day at a time from now on.” Rodriguez is now the second New York City undercover officer to come forward to say he was riding with the group that was involved in the assault. Just last week, the first undercover New York City detective who came forward was charged with assault, riot and criminal mischief after investigators said he lied about his role in the attack on the SUV. The lawyer for Rodriguez says his client’s story checks out. Miller asked, “What you told him was you weren’t there for any assault, you weren’t part of any assault, you didn’t even witness any assault?” Bonanno interrupted, saying, “John, with all due respect, I’m gonna stop you right there.” Bonanno says his client had fallen to the rear of the pack of motorcycles and that he didn’t see the confrontation where the SUV was surrounded by motorcycles and drove over two of them to escape. Rodriguez reportedly told investigators he took a different exit off the highway to visit his grandfather in a nursing home, so he was never even on the street where the final assault took place. Bonanno said, “Police Officer Matt Rodriguez voluntarily presented himself to the Manhattan district attorney’s office to answer any and all questions and concerns the had regarding his alleged involvement of the incidents of September 29th. It appears hat the district attorney’s office will discover, as we have known from day one, that there are no acts of criminality on behalf of Matthew Rodriguez.” Asked how it felt to sit down with investigators and get his story out, Rodriguez said, “I was just glad to be given the opportunity to actually say my piece.” Miller asked Bonanno, “Is it appropriate for police officers to be part of some motorcycle gang?” “Number one, this is not a motorcycle gang,” Bonanno said. “Frontline Soldiers was a small group of law enforcement individuals and former veterans. NYPD itself has a motorcycle club, so he was part of an organization of other law enforcement individuals that he thought was involved in charitable organizations and charitable things.” Miller added on “CBS This Morning” that Rodriguez has not been suspended or put on modified assignment, which is assigned to desk duty without a badge or a gun, but prosecutors do have other questions for him, including what contact he did or didn’t have with other officers before, during and after the assault. And the police department, in their internal investigation, will also want to know why he waited as long as he did to come forward when the investigation was highly publicized.
It makes economical sense, and it moves the tour along. Lately, however, there has been a growing interest by parents in trying to make adjustments to concert schedules so that they dont interfere with school schedules. Failing to do that, they are imploring the schools to make schedule changes. Earlier this month several parents at Raheen Gaelscoil, an Irish primary school, attempted to change the date of one of the biggest events of the class. The reason: Thirty students in that class had purchased tickets to a One Direction concert that just so happened to fall on the same date as the First Communion ceremony for the class. The Irish Independent newspaper shares, A meeting in the school on [October 9] became extremely heated when the parents involved insisted that the date be changed while other parents became incensed at what one described as the disrespect shown to the blessed sacrament. The school officials decided to poll the parents and sent home a ballet asking them to vote on moving Holy Communion to another date or keeping it as is. The school released a statement where it was revealed , The result of that ballot has been overwhelmingly in favour of retaining the original date. Staff, parents and children of Gaelscoil an Raithin look forward to preparing for this very special celebration next May. Well, I can think of a few children who may not be looking forward Its no surprise the parents in Ireland tried to move an event to accommodate a pop concert. Just last April students in Norway successfully had their exams postponed so local kids could enjoy a Justin Bieber concert. Kristin Halvorsen, the education minister of Norway, was incredibly sympathetic to students who wanted to delay midterms until after the concert. She told AP news , The local schools have the responsibility to schedule the local midterms, and if they think there is any reason to change the dates, they have authority to do so Weve all been 14-years-old and know that interests can be intense. Im betting Ms. Halvorsen is one of the most popular people in Norway right now. Most of us went to our first concerts on a school night. Sarah Bernard says, I remember seeing Madonna, my first concert at Radio City.

The program also includes two works by Vaughan Williams (Toccata Marziale and English Folk Song Suite), Holsts Hammersmith, Ives Variations on America, Hansons Chorale and Alleluia and Mannin Venn, by Wood. Founded in 1978 as the Ann Arbor Symphony Band by Victor Bordo and David Juillet, the Ann Arbor Concert Band has served as an ensemble for musicians wishing to perform wind band literature. The band has its roots in the Ann Arbor school system’s music program and continues a close relationship with it today. While they maintain an amateur status, “the standards of performance and organization are strictly professional,” according to their website. James Nissen conducts. Although rooted in the local area, the band also performs throughout the lower half of Michigan. Concerts are presented four to five times during the season, from September to May. The Ann Arbor Concert Band plays at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 20 in Hill Auditorium, 825 N. University Ave. Tickets are $10-$5 (children 12 and under free).
In other words, the video is the caption, not the music. While having no sound is disturbing at first, the experience is still very personal, because music is a great way to share emotions and a particular mood. When browsing staff picks, users can listen to a Disclosure track in a trendy clothing shop, a nice song from Chvrches in a hipster coffee shop, Lana Del Reys voice while looking through the eyes of a Parisian riding a Velib bike The video is the caption, not the music. Music discovery apps are very hard. For example, Turntable had to shut down Piki , the companys social music app. Thats why I was skeptical when I read what Mindie was all about. But when you open the app, you instantly get it. Just like in Frontback , the content takes the center stage. There is no chrome around the videos, you are putting yourself in your friends shoes. Videos last seven seconds, because Instagram showed the Mindie team that 15-second videos are too long. And of course, you hear a few seconds of the hand-picked soundtrack. When you swipe your finger across the screen, you get another video, another song. And it goes on and on.
17, 2013 12:49 p.m. An archive Civil War-era sheet music It’s hard to believe any songwriter would pen a tune in honor of American military leaders from the Iraq or Afghanistan wars, but 150 years ago many marches were written for generals and colonels. During the Civil War, music was more than a way to move armies quickly onto battlefields or remember the dead; it was also a form of propaganda. At a time when illiteracy rates, especially in rural areas, were high and communications were limited, sheet music was a way to convey information and to rally people. “Even if you couldn’t read, you could sing,” said Robert Curtis, a retired University of Georgia history professor and sheet music collector. Curtis is coming to Milwaukee this weekend to speak about the role of sheet music in the Civil War. Sheet music collectors are meeting Friday and Saturday for the American Sheet Music Conference at the Irish Fest Center, 1532 N. Wauwatosa Ave. in Wauwatosa. Because of the Civil War sesquicentennial, sheet music from that era will be spotlighted. “People find the Civil War so interesting. It was so complex. When President Lincoln heard ‘Dixie,’ he liked the song and often sang it,” said Barry Stapleton, director of the Ward Irish Music Archives, which is hosting the conference. The Ward Irish Music Archives at the Irish Fest Center is the largest public collection of Irish and Irish-American music in the United States. This week, much of the collection was placed online irishsheetmusicarchives.com though music post-1923, which is still copyrighted, will be somewhat restricted.
This new insight helps explain the historical development of music, while at the same time provides impetus to expand the therapeutical use of music, the researchers surmise. Certain genres of music, like Blues and Gospel, are directly linked to hard physical work, the scientists note. For example, when slaves toiled in the cotton fields, they sang. When chained prisoners chipped stones in the quarries, they sang, and incorporated the sounds of work into their music. When athletes want to achieve peak performance they often listen to music, while fans try to spur on their favorites performance with singing and chanting. For their study, the researchers developed a series of tests using three different fitness machines. In the first test, there were always three participants using the fitness equipment who were also passively listening to music. In the second test, the researchers prepared the machines so that once the participants began to use them, the music would start. This meant that their training actually made the music, the researchers noted. During all the tests, the scientists measured metabolic data, such as oxygen intake and changes to muscle tension, and they questioned the participants about their sense of exertion. That questioning revealed that a majority of the participants felt the strain less severely while they were producing the music, the researchers reported. Coincidentally, the measurements revealed that during the music making the muscles used less energy and were more effective physiologically.
The so-called Speech from the Throne is scheduled for about 5 p.m. Ottawa time, marking the opening of a new legislative session. We must keep our eye on the long term, Harper said in comments to lawmakers, according to remarks provided to reporters by the Prime Ministers office. For Canada to prosper through the challenges of this uncertain world, we must do more. Harper has sought to diversify the nations trade away from the U.S. to fuel the recovery as the worlds 11th largest economy struggles to build momentum, in part because of weak exports. Canada has averaged annualized quarterly growth rates of 1.3 percent since the start of 2012, down from 3 percent in 2010 and 2011, according to Statistics Canada data. The economy has added 113,100 jobs so far this year, on pace for its second worst annual result in the past decade. Negotiations Dragging With European trade negotiations dragging into a fifth year, Canadian executives have been warning that Harper was running out of time to complete an agreement amid concern that talks with the U.S. will leapfrog Canada as a priority for Europe . Canadas largest manufacturing lobby group called on provincial leaders today to back the agreement. Canadian manufacturers and exporters hope that we can count on your support when negotiations are finally concluded, the Ottawa-based group said in an open letter to provincial premiers.

“The talks are now well advanced” and the two will meet in Brussels “with the aim of concluding negotiations on an accord that offers both sides major opportunities,” Commission spokesman Olivier Bailly said on Thursday. The two men will then brief the press on their discussions, Bailly said, declining to give details of the accord which remain to be settled. Overnight, Harper said “we will soon complete negotiations” on a free-trade accord which began in 2009, with Barroso tweeting that he hoped to conclude quickly. Many observers see a deal, which has proved difficult to conclude, as a possible template for EU talks with the United States on TTIP, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership which is touted as one of the biggest free-trade accords ever. Brussels and Washington have held a first round of discussions and are committed to making speedy progress but there are a host of differences to settle. According to EU figures, bilateral trade in goods last year was worth 61.7 bn euros ($84.0 billion), with Canada the 11th largest trading partner of the European Union, while the 28-member bloc was its second most important market after the United States. Official sources told AFP earlier the deal would give the European Union increased access for cheese sales, one of the last hurdles. On several previous occasions officials on both sides have said a deal was imminent but deadlines passed and no announcement was forthcoming. Negotiations were begun in 2009 with the expectation they would be concluded by late 2012 but they became deadlocked over a few issues, mainly in agriculture. Canada asked for increased European access for its beef while the EU sought to lower tariffs of up to 300 percent shielding Canada’s dairy industry from imports of European cheeses. A transatlantic deal would give Canadian companies access to 500 million European consumers and eliminate 98 percent of Canadian tariffs on EU goods. Politics & Government ‘If I Could, They Would Already Be in Jail,’ Sheriff Grady Judd said Good Morning America London (AFP) – A British geneticist said Thursday he may have solved the mystery of the yeti, after matching DNA from two animals said to be the mythical beast to an ancient polar bear.

IBTimes/Lisa Mahapatra Nearly 60 percent of EU Internet users made purchases online in 2012, according to recently released data from Eurostat . Clothes and holiday accomodations are the most common online purchases, followed by books, according to the report. However, online grocery is yet to really catch on among Internet users in the EU. One in three EU Internet users reported buying clothes online, while fewer than one in 10 said that they had ordered food and groceries online. Among member states, the United Kingdom, Denmark and Sweden had the highest proportion of Internet users making purchases online. In Romania and Bulgaria, however, fewer than 20 percent of Internet users had made a single online purchase in the past year. Its important to keep in mind that there are still many EU countries in which a fairly large section of the population doesnt use the Internet. For example, in 2012, 65 percent of Greeks had never used the Internet . Heres the data released by Eurostat in an interactive map.

The next two slots went to a creative ad exec and a part-time consultant at Fox. The only high profile executive on the entire list was seventh-ranked Paul Lee, president of ABC’s Entertainment Group. The remainder of the top 10 were managers, agents and producers from boutique firms, as well as a CAA human resources exec. While Simon did garner 830 votes, it’s unclear how much (or well, how little) her fledgling business will really be affected by this. In its inaugural 2009 tally , the Brown List counted Harvey Weinstein, Scott Rudin, NBC Pres Ben Silverman, and WME’s Ari Emanuel among its list of high ranking execs. Yet from 2010 onwards, the list has remained a collection of small nameswhich isn’t necessarily a bad thing. This is Hollywood, even low-ranking executives enter this town with an overinflated sense of entitlement. What is interesting is the disparity between the highest ranked votes and everyone else. While the top vote getters pulled in hundreds of votes, the majority of those who didn’t break the top ten earned around one to two votes, max. Is there a case of ballot box stuffing in the stupidest election of all time? Probably. Just ask Jenna Block, a not-so-well regarded exec at Sony based production company, Escape Artists. In 2010 she received 51 least-liked votes, but I’m told she also had friends nominate her aplenty to help her earn 44 most-liked votes as well.
“Could it be that age makes you more cynical?” “There’s a director sleeping, hidden in every actor,” said Bichir, scion of a family of actors. Bichir has a role in his movie alongside US star Eva Longoria, his father Alejandro and his Canadian girlfriend Stefanie Sherk. The film, he said, is being made “with much more heart than money.” “Part of what we want to do with ‘Refugio’ is to open a breach in order to continue telling more stories, to win some sort of credibility and be able to put different studios and actors on the table,” said the actor. Hollywood Latino power Bichir, who played Fidel Castro in Steven Soderbergh’s “Che” saga and had a role in Oliver Stone’s Mexican drug cartel film “Savages,” divides his time between Los Angeles and Mexico City. “I think that we Latino actors in Hollywood are very much needed but it will be more interesting when we generate our own projects,” he said. Actor Demian Bichir attends the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 2013 Installation Luncheon at He said the growing clout of Hispanic actors in Tinseltown has nothing to do with “the Hollywood dream.” “It has more to do with an adventurous spirit. For me, opening a path to the United States was hard work and I am where I am thanks to hard work, not talent,” he said. But the prizes he won at the Screen Actors Guild ceremony and Independent Spirit Award for his performance in a “A Better Life” tell a different story. He now stars in the new FX series “The Bridge” as a Mexican detective based in the drug violence-torn border city of Ciudad Juarez who teams up with a US homicide cop, played by Diane Kruger. Mexico’s drug violence “The big, stressful problem in Mexico right now is violence,” Bichir said. More than 70,000 people have died amid bloody turf battles between drug cartels in Mexico since 2006, with more than 10,000 of those deaths in Ciudad Juarez alone. The surge in violence coincided with the deployment of troops by then president Felipe Calderon, who sent 50,000 soldiers to the streets to crack down on gangs after taking office in December 2006. “The problems is this stupid war that was started by the former president, who now gives classes at Harvard,” he said, referring to the academic job that Calderon was given by the US elite university after he left office in December 2012. “Imagine, such wonderful prestige for this institution,” he said with sarcasm.

Louis Hernandez, Jr, President and CEO of Avid, will accept the award on behalf of the company.

The post production industry has always been a source of innovation and inspiration.
The puzzle, modeled after the math-based game of the Sliding 15, centers around a single empty space that allows for the tiles to move. What separates Eni from the Rubiks Cube is that this mind-bender requires your full concentration, Sebazco said. Rubiks is a party trick, you can solve it blindfolded, he said. This is not a competition, its an exercise. Sebazco, 43, is eagerly anticipating his products big-screen debut in Escape Plan, the latest Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger-led action movie thats slated to be released on Friday. It takes the company to a whole other level, he said. Im anxious and nervous at the same time. This is awesome. He didnt earn any money for its inclusion on-screen, but he hopes the movie will give his business the exposure hes been waiting for. He got the big break completely by chance, when Los Angeles-based product-placement specialist Karen Neasi came across the Eni while searching for puzzles for Stallones character, who has to escape from a fictional super-prison. Howard Simmons/New York Daily News What separates Eni from the Rubiks Cube is that this mind-bender requires your full concentration, its Queens-based inventor says. I knew it was going to get in because it was all over the place, she said. It got on camera and it got a lot of placement. Neasi said the films cast became enthralled with the puzzle; once, she spotted Curtis (50 Cent) Jackson fiddling with the Eni on the set.
