first_imgThe Elders welcome the announcement of the agreement on the “end of conflict” in Colombia, including the terms for a bilateral ceasefire between the Colombian security forces and the FARC guerrilla, as well as the modalities for disarmament and security guarantees.Kofi Annan, Chair of The Elders, said: “We are encouraged by the work so far accomplished in Havana and by the perseverance of both parties in moving the peace process towards a successful conclusion. We commend the important roles that Norway and Cuba are playing as guarantors and Chile and Venezuela as accompanying countries, as well as the US. We also welcome the role a United Nations political mission will play in providing independent and credible international verification of the ceasefire.”Ernesto Zedillo, member of The Elders, added: “Colombia is on the cusp of reaching an historic agreement. The Colombian people deserve peace and I sincerely hope they will seize this opportunity to end the violence they have lived through for generations, to bring redress for millions of victims, and to bring real opportunities to the people of the regions most affected by conflict. Peace is not an event but a process. It must be a national project, bringing together all Colombian patriots in an inclusive fashion, across political rifts, to have a respectful debate when they vote on the agreements and to ensure they are fully implemented.”last_img read more

Rabat – Moroccan tennis player of Algerian origin Lamine Ouahab said that he has no regrets about choosing to play for Morocco and compete for his wife’s country.Ouahab said that he did not resort to choosing Moroccan nationality because it is the only choice, but because he is happy to belong to the kingdom. Morocco gave him a passport in 2013 at his request to become a Moroccan citizen like his children and wife.Ouahab explained in a recent interview with an Algerian newspaper that he does not regret his decision and will not regret it at all. He mentioned his difficult circumstances in Algeria, where he did not have the financial capacity to hire a coach or manager, in the absence of companies willing to sponsor his talent. The player went on to add that he intends to be among the top 200 tennis players in the world, which now carries additional weight since he bears the responsibility of defending the colors of the kingdom and the leadership of Morocco’s national tennis team.Ouahab stressed that he had not received any phone calls from the Algerian authorities to persuade him to return to play for his native country. Even if they do call him, he said, he would not respond to their demands, because they have “rejected him since the beginning, abandoned him, and pushed him to leave.” read more

“It is a secret to no one in this room that collectively we are at present stumbling to meet this challenge,” said Under-Secretary for Disarmament Affairs, Nobuyasu Abe said in an address to the panel, known as the First Committee.Echoing previous comments by Secretary-General Kofi Annan, Mr. Abe blamed posturing by Member States for the lack of results on the nuclear issue at the Non-Proliferation Treaty review conference earlier this year and again at the UN World Summit last month.“It falls in some large measure to this Committee to begin [the] task of trying to pick up the pieces and provide fresh orientation,” he told the body, which includes representatives from all 191 of the UN’s Member States.Specifically, Mr. Abe called for guidance from the Committee on how the Geneva-based Conference on Disarmament can achieve progress on negotiations on a Fissile Material Cut-off Treaty and other issues, including negative security assurances and even “the fundamental question of complete nuclear disarmament.”Biological and chemical weapons remain major items on the agenda because of their “potentially massive and indiscriminate effects,” he said, adding that growing concern that nuclear weapons will fall into the hands of terrorists has also become an important issue for the UN Department of Disarmament.“There are many measures to be taken to establish domestic laws and regulations to criminalize activities concerning proliferation of weapons of mass destruction to non-State actors and to establish and tighten export and border controls,” Mr. Abe said.He also called for greater attention to the threat posed by conventional arms, noting that “everyday tragedies” that occur around the world “kill thousands of people every year.” To that end, he urged action on a draft international instrument aimed at enabling States to identify and trace illicit small arms and light weapons. read more

In her more than 10 years as a Brock teaching assistant, Christina Quintiliani has come to understand she learns just as much from her students as they do from her.The doctoral student in Educational Studies describes being a TA as a big part of a lifelong learning process that has enriched her academic experience both personally and professionally.“One of the most rewarding aspects of being a TA is the reciprocal nature of the learning that takes place in the classroom,” she said. “Not only do you receive the opportunity to contribute to your students’ learning and observe their progress throughout the semester, but you also have the privilege of learning from and with your students.”  Quintiliani will be a panel member at the closing plenary for Brock’s annual TA Day, held on Saturday, Sept. 9 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Pond Inlet.She and other seasoned TAs will offer stories about their teaching experiences and how serving as a TA has impacted their academic journeys. The plenary will wrap up a full day of TA professional development workshops and information sessions presented by the Centre for Pedagogical Innovation (CPI).All Brock teaching assistants are invited to participate. Visit the CPI website for more information and to register by Tuesday, Sept. 5. Those who attend are eligible to earn credits toward a TA certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.“One of the unique aspects of TA Day is that it seeks to educate both new and experienced TAs equally,” says Quintiliani, who received a Senior TA Award in 2013. “No matter how long someone has been instructing in a seminar environment, there are always new skills to be learned and ideas and teaching strategies to explore.”A facilitator at past TA Day events, Quintiliani says the workshops provide insights and tips on an array of teaching topics, such as planning seminar sessions and effective grading and assessment. “The ideas and strategies presented can be applied in any department or academic field of study,” she says. “The sessions motivate you and boost your confidence around your abilities to facilitate learning, grade course assignments and create a positive and supportive classroom environment for students.“Overall, the day unites and celebrates the thoughts and experiences of all TAs and their unique perspectives and viewpoints on teaching and learning,” Quintiliani says.  Lianne Fisher, CPI’s Educational Developer, says the variety of workshops will appeal to TAs at all levels. “We have an assortment of workshops for those who are new to being a TA,” she said, referencing sessions titled What to Do the First Day of Class, Marking Madness, Icebreakers and Energizers, and Getting to Know SAKAI.Experienced TAs also have a variety of sessions to choose from, such as Managing Multiple Relationships as a Teaching Assistant, Maximizing Digital Accessibility, and Design for Learning.“There’s something for everyone,” Fisher said. read more

first_imgL’Institut islandais d’Histoire Naturelle : un cube de glace “vert”Conçu par le groupe islandais ARKÍS, le nouvel Institut islandais d’Histoire Naturelle s’apparente à un gigantesque cube de glace qui scintille au soleil. Composé dans sa majorité d’un verre traité, sa paroi donne l’illusion d’être entièrement faite de glace. Une construction innovante et plutôt “givrée”, derrière laquelle se cache la volonté d’une architecture toujours plus respectueuse de l’environnement.Ce nouvel institut de recherches islandais a été construit pour accueillir une cinquantaine de chercheurs et mettre à leur disposition une bibliothèque et une collection impressionnante de spécimens pour mener au mieux leurs différentes recherches sur le développement durable, entre autres. A l’image des études effectuées au sein de l’Institut d’Histoire Naturelle, les architectes du groupe ARJKIS ont souhaité relever un défi à la fois architectural et environnemental.À lire aussiPourquoi l’eau des océans est-elle salée ?S’inspirant de la nature, que sa façade en verre permet de refléter, l’Institut de recherches islandais est segmenté en trois parties séparées par des passerelles de verre, qui permettent aux chercheurs de circuler d’une partie du bâtiment à une autre, sans en sortir. Quel que soit l’endroit où l’on se situe, les parois transparentes livrent une vue grandiose sur la nature qui entoure le bâtiment. Ouvert sur la nature, le bâtiment est également conçu pour la respecter au maximum. Ses étages supérieurs sont enveloppés dans une double façade en verre, ce qui permet à la structure d’utiliser une ventilation et un éclairage dits naturels, et d’être parée face aux intempéries. Ayant subit un traitement spécial, le verre donne à la façade l’illusion de cristaux de glace et apporte une luminosité intense. Cela permet à la lumière de traverser la paroi transparente du bâtiment et d’inonder l’intérieur des locaux sans éblouir ses occupants. Les parois de verre participent aussi à chauffer les lieux. Les lampes et les radiateurs n’ont alors plus aucune utilité ! L’Institut islandais d’Histoire Naturelle a su allier la beauté du design au respect de la nature.

first_imgMédicaments : les Français ont diminué leur consommationSelon une étude publiée mardi par le groupe de réflexion LIR, la France vit actuellement la fin de son exceptionnelle consommation de médicaments. Le pays reviendrait dans la moyenne, excepté dans le domaine des antibiotiques et des anxiolytiques.L’étude menée par le groupe de réflexion LIR (qui représente 16 filiales d’entreprises internationales de recherche en santé) retrace auprès de sept pays et sur dix ans les volumes de médicaments consommés dans huit classes thérapeutiques : antibiotiques, anxiolytiques, anti-dépresseurs, anti-ulcéreux, hypolipémiants, anti-hypertenseurs, anti-diabétiques et anti-asthmatiques. C’est ainsi une bonne nouvelle qu’ont annoncé les premiers résultats. À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?Ceux-ci révèlent “la fin de l’exception française en matière de consommation de médicaments : la France affiche le taux d’évolution le plus faible et une modération relative de sa consommation de médicaments”. En effet, si en 2000, les Français étaient les plus gros consommateurs des huit classes thérapeutiques, en 2011 ils se placent “dans la moyenne européenne” avec une “nette régression” dans les six dernières classes de médicaments (anti-dépresseurs, anti-ulcéreux, hypolipémiants, anti-hypertenseurs et anti-diabétiques).En revanche, “les deux seules classes pour lesquelles la consommation française reste encore élevée sont les classes des antibiotiques et des anxiolytiques”, souligne le LIR. Pour ces deux types de médicaments, la France reste parmi les trois premiers consommateurs, aux côtés de la Belgique, l’Espagne et l’Italie. L’Allemagne, les Pays-Bas et le Royaume-Uni sont quant à eux de moins gros consommateurs. Bien que toujours trop élevées, les prescriptions d’anxiolytiques décroissent, tout comme celles d’antibiotiques.Des baisses qui sont notamment dues aux nombreuses campagnes lancées ces dernières mois par les autorités sanitaires. “Le médicament n’est pas un produit comme les autres” ou encore la fameux “les antibiotiques c’est pas automatique”, autant de slogans et de sensibilisation qui ont semble t-il été efficaces alors que la trop grande consommation médicamenteuse des Français suscitait encore l’inquiétude il y a peu.Le 5 juillet 2012 à 16:31 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

first_imgIn March 2009, Time will introduce new print package called “Health & Wellness,” targeting 1 million women. “We hope this will take off as a standalone supplement that we can possibly offer quarterly,” says McCarrick.Agencies Resist Audience GuaranteeMcCarrick said that by lowering its ratebase Time has been able to improve profits. “We’re not chasing marginal subscriptions,” he added.However, McCarrick expressed disappointment that ad agencies and media buyers haven’t embraced Time’s audience guarantee, which was intended to move the magazine in line with how other media around world (including international editions) are evaluated—on audience, rather than circulation. “Until we shift from circulation to audience, we won’t be evaluated on an even level with other media,” said McCarrick. “But agencies haven’t taken us up on this. Agencies cling to circulation because it gives them a proven negotiating tactic.” RELATED POST: Time Publisher Wants to Capture Readers from Cradle to the GraveCHICAGO—Time magazine has more than 3 million readers in print and currently does 82 million page views online, and president and worldwide publisher Ed McCarrick thinks the brand can “easily do 200 million page views” online in the near future. “We must be constantly innovative to earn audience back each day,” said McCarrick, who delivered the opening keynote at the FOLIO: Show here today.Online advertising revenue currently accounts for about 10 percent of overall revenue at Time and is projected to grow by 57 percent in 2008 and another 35 percent to 40 percent in 2009, according McCarrick.While McCarrick thinks online will eventually account for 30 percent to 35 percent of overall revenue, “offline revenue is still the big engine.” Still, one medium is leveraged with another. “We’re putting together a multifaceted approach and it’s no longer clean in terms of one media being separate from another.”Beyond the Red BorderTaking the Time audience “beyond the red border”—referring to the magazine’s famous cover margin—is key for the publisher, according to McCarrick. The magazine “broke down barriers between news breakers and the audience” by opening up its popular 10 Questions feature, in which Time staffers ask noted individuals 10 questions, to the readership, who can ask questions online and read the responses in a variety of media, from print to online to video on YouTube and audio files on iTunes. Rather than attempt to scratch out print revenue while depending on online and events for all new growth, Time made big changes in the way it delivers its print magazine. The shift in delivery from Monday to Friday wasn’t about cutting costs but adapting to how the audience consumes media, McCarrick said. “From Monday to Friday, moment-to-moment, the Web site does the heavy lifting,” he said. “On the weekend, then relax and they’re open to spending time with long-form analysis. We didn’t do this because to cut costs, we actually incurred considerable costs for printing and delivery. This brings the magazine closer to the consumer.” last_img read more

first_imgMexico’s coach José Manuel de la Torre conducts a training session at the Mineirao Stadium in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, on Friday, on the eve of their FIFA Confederations Cup Brazil 2013 Group A football match against Japan. Yuri Cortez/AFP BRASILIA – Brazil’s embattled President Dilma Rousseff held crisis talks Friday to weigh her response to two weeks of mass protests as a top aide warned the unrest could affect Pope Francis’s Rio visit in July.An estimated 1.25 million people marched in scores of cities on Thursday to demand better public services and slam the huge cost of staging next year’s World Cup. Two people have now died in incidents related to the protests.Smaller protests were planned for late Friday in at least 35 cities, including Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Curitiba and Fortaleza.Rousseff, who remains relatively popular even as the protesters denounce the country’s political class as a whole, summoned her ministers to seek ways to regain the upper hand.Her chief of staff however warned that Brazil must plan for the possibility that the unrest could be ongoing during World Youth Day, the Catholic youth festival due to be held in Rio in late July, which the pope is due to attend.“We have to be prepared,” Gilberto Carvalho said in Brasilia ahead of a meeting with organizers of the Catholic event.The demonstrations have overshadowed football’s Confederations Cup, which Brazil is currently hosting and which is seen as a dry run for next year’s World Cup tournament.Many Brazilians are angry over the multi-billion-dollar expense of preparations for the World Cup and for the 2016 Summer Olympics.Several protests have been held outside stadiums and a mammoth march is scheduled for June 30 to Rio’s iconic Maracana stadium on the day of the Confederations Cup final.The secretary general of world football’s governing body FIFA however insisted Friday that the World Cup must be held next year in Brazil as planned, no matter what happens.“The Confederations Cup is taking place in Brazil and the World Cup must be held in Brazil,” Jerome Valcke told local media ahead of a meeting with World Cup organizers.“There is no plan B,” he added.Earlier Friday, FIFA said it has no plans to scrap the Confederations Cup currently under way, and that no team wants to pull out despite the huge protests.“At no stage has FIFA considered or discussed abandoning the Confederations Cup with the local authorities,” FIFA media chief Pekka Odriozola said. “We are monitoring the situation with the authorities.”“We support the right of free speech,” he added. “We condemn violence.”  No related posts.center_img Carvalho conceded that the nationwide protests – which began two weeks ago after a hike in bus fares – reflect widespread public resentment.“We must understand that these demonstrations are calling for change. They signal popular dissatisfaction,” he noted.“This big group of Brazilians who emerged from exclusion to become consumers want new rights and this is all good,” he added.More than 40 million Brazilians are estimated to have been lifted out of poverty and to have entered the lower middle class in the past decade, but growth is slowing and popular frustration mounting.Thursday’s marches were largely peaceful but were marred by violence and acts of vandalism by small groups of hardliners, notably in Rio and Brasilia.Two fatalities were reported.An 18 year-old man was struck by a car while protesting in the southeastern city of Ribeirao Preto and a 54-year-old woman died of heart attack after an explosive device detonated in the northern city of Belem.In Rio, where some 300,000 people rallied in the city center, Mayor Eduardo Paes on Friday reviewed the damage from violence that left 62 people injured, including eight police officers.“I have no doubt that most of the demonstrators had good intentions and only wanted to assert their rights,” he told a press conference at City Hall.“Unfortunately, groups – a minority – through their acts of vandalism, have tarnished this demonstration which is part of the city’s democratic history.”He said public buildings and bank branches were damaged, shops looted, seven cars destroyed and the biggest Samba cultural center, which had been fitted with giant screens for Confederations Cup match viewing, were gutted.Fires also damaged some of the buildings at the Sambadrome where Rio’s sumptuous Carnival parades are held.Early Friday, 100 hooligans ransacked the municipal council in Caucaia, a suburb of the northeastern city of Fortaleza, according to press reports.The unrest quickly expanded from anger over the state of Brazilian public transport into a wider protest against corruption in the world’s seventh largest economy.The movement has no political hue and no clearly identified leadership.“We have demonstrators without leaders facing politicians without leadership who kept silent,” the daily O Globo said in an editorial.Meanwhile, the Passe Livre Movement campaigning for free public transport in São Paulo said it would no longer call for demonstrations after fare hikes were reversed.

Lilly is enjoying a sense of female empowerment these days, in her career and beyond. THE CANADIAN PRESS/AP-Photo by Paul A. Hebert/Invision/AP Evangeline Lilly on female empowerment and Fan Expo Canada appearancecenter_img TORONTO – Canadian actress Evangeline Lilly is enjoying a sense of female empowerment these days, in her career and beyond.For starters, the Fort Saskatchewan, Alta., native stars in the summer superhero hit “Ant-Man and The Wasp,” which is the first film in the Marvel cinematic universe with a female character in its title.“It’s very exciting for me, because suddenly I have a huge uptick in the number of fans who are female,” the 39-year-old, who plays Hope van Dyne/Wasp in the film, said in a recent phone interview from her home in Hawaii to promote her appearance at Fan Expo Canada this weekend.“It’s great. Historically, I’ve had a more predominantly male fanbase and I’ve always thought, ‘How do I get women? I want the women!’” she said with a laugh. “God bless the men, but you get tired of making pictures where you’re attractive and you want to just make pictures where you’re you.”Lilly also was emboldened recently when revealing a situation in which she felt powerless.In an episode of “The Lost Boys” podcast last month, Lilly admitted she felt “basically cornered into doing a scene partially naked” during season 3 of ABC’s “Lost,” in which she starred as Kate Austen.After another scene involving her character undressing arose for season 4, she vowed she would never take her clothes off on the show again.“Lost” producers J.J. Abrams, Jack Bender, Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof recently apologized to Lilly, which she called a “beautiful, empathetic gesture.”“I think the fact that there’s now an environment where I felt brave enough to say that, which was to answer a question that was asked and not to feel that I needed to hide the truth to protect anybody — and that then after that, instead of there being enormous professional backlash, there being nothing but loving support from the men who ran that show — really says a lot about what #MeToo has done and where it has taken us,” said Lilly, who won a Screen Actors Guild Award and got a Golden Globe nomination for her role on “Lost.”“The fact that I felt that I could tell that story says a lot.”Lilly said she’s grateful to be able to continue these types of conversations and keep them at the forefront, through platforms like “Ant-Man and The Wasp” and “Fan Expo Canada,” which runs Thursday through Sunday.Lilly will appear at the convention on Friday and Saturday. Other guests expected include William Shatner, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Momoa, cast members from “Degrassi: The Next Generation,” and “Back to the Future” actors including fellow Canadian Michael J. Fox.The “Ant-Man” franchise has drawn in a younger fanbase, said Lilly, and on Saturday at Fan Expo she’ll be doing a panel on her children’s book series “The Squickerwonkers.”Rodrigo Bastos Didier did the illustrations and Lilly wrote the books, about a clever little girl and a band of colourful marionettes.Lilly said she was inspired by the likes of authors Roald Dahl and Edward Gorey, whose books her grandfather introduced her to when she was young and a “reluctant reader.”“I was a very slow reader but I was a very smart girl, and I found that all the books that were at my reading level spoke down to me and I felt insulted and bored,” Lilly said.Gorey’s stories had an irreverent, childlike humour that opened the door to reading for Lilly. Now, she’s hoping her books will help her son, whom she said is also a reluctant reader.“When I’m looking for books for my kids, yes, I want to tell them idealistic, beautiful stories about pixies and faeries and unicorns and teddy bears,” Lilly said.“But also I want to tell them stories that allow them to learn about and integrate some of the more difficult things that they deal with in reality.”last_img read more

Strange that this was stated by the Mudaliar Commission in 1952 Reforms in the past have focused on the mechanics of conducting examinationsnot on the content and purposes Switching from essay type questions to objective type questions is one such The common refrain is that this has made the conduct of examinations a bureaucratic phenomenonnot a professional one With fixed answers and predetermined model answers even for questions where children have to write phrases and sentencesthe job can be done mechanicallymaking the professional capability of a teacher redundant In realityschool boards have tried to do away with all complexities of learner evaluation Objectivity in the public eye is the sole criterion The CBSE proposal to reintroduce essay type questions and reduce dependence on memorisation is a welcome step Remember that this is supposed to evaluate the learners accomplishments in 12 long years of schooling Ideallyone should profile the trajectory of each students progress This can be done only by those who teach children over the years Will the proposed change lead the public to repose their faith again in the teachers ability to be objective and professional in evaluating their students The current proposal by the CBSE must be seen in conjunction with another reform recently introduced by the board Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE)giving weightage to school-based assessment by teachers What is intendedwhat is understood by the teachers and what happens in reality the three could be at variance with one another Synchronising the three cannot be done through official notifications But public examinations and admission tests have assumed so much importance that schools are under pressure to prepare the students to face them rather than focusing on personal growth Strangelythe public seems to have greater confidence in external examinations than in assessment by teachers Historicallythe imperial administration organised state-controlled examinations to project in the public mind an image of British justice and impartiality In the system of education established by themwhile Indians were included as teacherstheir role as evaluators was grossly underplayed It was considered necessary to have examinations conducted by outsiderspreferably British Have we overcome this colonial hangover Continuous undermining of the role of teachers has led to the erosion of their credibility as evaluators Public perception of poor accountability and teachers indifference has accentuated this In this contextefforts like the CCE under the Right to Education Act and the CBSEs move to include internal assessment in the board results must be recognised But will schools and teachers implement the policy sincerely and adopt credible practices This alone will decide the survival of these new initiatives Evaluationlike teachingmust be a human contract between student and teacherbetween society and the educational institution But our examination system has taken away the human face of education For the millions who fail to make the gradeschool or college is an experience they would rather

am Only pot selfies and Facebook will abide- and the greatest of these will probably be Facebook Top News In the future it seems there will be only one “ism” — Individualism — and its rule will never end As for religion it shall decline; as for marriage it shall be postponed; as for ideologies they shall be rejected; as for patriotism it shall be abandoned; as for strangers they shall be distrusted Only pot selfies and Facebook will abide — and the greatest of these will probably be Facebook That’s the implication at least of what the polling industry keeps telling us about the rising American generation the so-called millennials A new Pew survey the latest dispatch from the land of young adulthood describes a generation that’s socially liberal on issues like immigration and marijuana and same-sex marriage proudly independent of either political party less likely to be married and religious than earlier generations less likely to identify as patriotic and less likely — by a striking margin — to say that one’s fellow human beings can be trusted In political terms the millennials are liberals on the surface which is why the Pew report inspired a round of discussion about whether they’re likely to transform electoral politics in the short run whether they will push our political debates leftward in the long run and whether this gives the Democratic Party a hammerlock on the future But the millennials’ scepticism of parties programmes and people runs deeper than their allegiance to a particular ideology Their left-wing commitments are ardent on a few issues but blur into libertarianism and indifferentism on others The common denominator is individualism not left-wing politics: It explains both the personal optimism and the social mistrust the passion about causes like gay marriage and the declining interest in collective-action crusades like environmentalism even the fact that religious affiliation has declined but personal belief is still widespread So the really interesting question about the millennials isn’t whether they’ll all be voting Democratic when Chelsea Clinton runs for president It’s whether this level of individualism — post-patriotic post-familial disaffiliated — is actually sustainable across the life cycle One can answer “yes” to this question cheerfully or pessimistically — with the optimism of a libertarian who sees such individualism as a liberation from every form of oppression and control or the pessimism of a communitarian who sees social isolation atomisation and unhappiness trailing in its wake But one can also answer “no” and argue that the human desire for community and authority cannot be permanently buried — in which case the most important question in an era of individualism might be what form of submission it presages This was the point raised in 1953 by Robert Nisbet’s Quest for Community arguably the 20th century’s most important work of conservative sociology Trying to explain modern totalitarianism’s dark allure Nisbet argued that it was precisely the emancipation of the individual in modernity — from clan church and guild — that had enabled the rise of fascism and Communism In the increasing absence of local personal forms of fellowship and solidarity he suggested people were naturally drawn to mass movements cults of personality nationalistic fantasias The advance of individualism thus eventually produced its own antithesis — conformism submission and control You don’t have to see a fascist or Communist revival on the horizon to see this argument’s potential relevance for our apparently individualistic future You only have to look at the place where millennials — and indeed most of us — are clearly seeking new forms of community today That place is the online realm which offers a fascinating variation on Nisbet’s theme Like modernity writ large it promises emancipation and offers new forms of community that transcend the local But it requires a price in terms of privacy surrendered that past tyrannies could have only dreamed of exacting from their subjects This surrender could prove to be benign But it’s still noteworthy that today’s vaguely totalitarian arguments don’t come from demagogues They come from enthusiasts for the online Panopticon the uploaded world That kind of future is far from inevitable But as Nisbet would argue and as the rising generation of Americans may yet need to learn it probably cannot be successfully resisted by individualism alone For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy:

Parnia a former research fellow at Southampton University now at the State University of New York who led the study “But in this case conscious awareness appears to have continued for up to three minutes into the period when the heart wasn’t beating even though the brain typically shuts down within 20-30 seconds after the heart has stopped “The man described everything that had happened in the room but importantly he heard two bleeps from a machine that makes a noise at three minute intervals So we could time how long the experienced lasted for “He seemed very credible and everything that he said had happened to him had actually happened” Parnia said Of 2060 cardiac arrest patients studied 330 survived and 140 said they had experienced some kind of awareness while being resuscitated One in five said they had felt an unusual sense of peacefulness while nearly one third said time had slowed down or speeded up Some recalled seeing a bright light; a golden flash or the Sun shining
