Section of Sri Lankan Muslims condemn criticism of ancient rituals

The United Nations views all forms of FGM as a violation of the rights of women and girls.The practice among the Dawoodi Bohras hit the headlines in 2015 when a court in Australia found two members of the Indian Dawoodi Bohras diaspora community guilty of cutting two girls. A Bohra religious leader was convicted of being an accessory.Since then, more than a dozen Bohra communities in Europe and the United States have passed resolutions against the practice.Although it is not mentioned in the Koran, the Bohras consider Khatna a religious obligation. Debate on the subject has long been taboo, campaigners say. Members of Sri Lanka’s Muslim communities have strongly condemned criticism of ancient cutting rituals performed on girls, saying it should not be classed as female genital mutilation, Thomson Reuters Foundation reported.According to the World Health Organization (WHO), FGM includes all procedures that intentionally alter or cause injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons. “It is completely false to associate FGM in Africa, where the clitoris is seriously damaged or removed, with khatna in Sri Lanka,” said Jamila Husain, spokesperson for a body representing the 3,000-strong Dawoodi Bohra community in Sri Lanka.“Khatna involves making just the mildest of nicks on foreskin of the clitoris as required by our religion. There is no clinical evidence to show that it has negative health impacts or causes any kind of psychological trauma.” The practice has no health benefits for girls and women, says the WHO, adding it can cause long-term physical and psychological harm. A U.N. report on FGM last year listed 30 countries where cutting is practised, almost all in Africa. However, campaigners believe FGM happens in at least 45 countries and is more widespread in Asia than commonly thought.Members of Sri Lanka’s Moor and Malay Muslim community – which number nearly two million and 60,000 respectively – say it is misleading and damaging to their communities to brand “a nick on the hood or prepuce of the clitoris” as FGM.“We do not mutilate or cut our girls. Our religion requires it and it actually helps to keep the area clean and hygienic and prevents infections,” said Asiff Hussein, vice president at the Centre for Islamic Studies in Sri Lanka. But representatives of Sri Lankan Muslim communities – such as the Dawoodi Bohras, Moor and Malay Muslims – who practice female circumcision or “khatna” – say the procedure their girls undergo cannot be compared to what happens in regions such as Africa, where the practice can involve sewing up the vagina. But two Bohra women interviewed by the Thomson Reuters Foundation said when they underwent the ritual as children it involved damage to the clitoris, and vowed that their daughters would not undergo the khatna.And in India, a group of women from the Dawoodi Bohra community have called for the government to ban the practice.The WHO classifies FGM into four types – full or partial removal of the clitoris, the removal of the inner folds of the vulva plus the removal of the clitoris, narrowing of the vaginal opening through the creation of a seal and pricking, piercing, incising, scraping or cauterising the genital area. “In fact, this procedure actually helps women gain more pleasure during sexual intercourse.” read more

Tribune Co wants to split into separate publishing and broadcasting companies

by The Associated Press Posted Jul 10, 2013 8:05 am MDT Tribune Co. wants to split into separate publishing and broadcasting companies CHICAGO – Tribune Co. said Wednesday that it wants to split its broadcasting and publishing businesses into two companies.Tribune said the move will let one company take advantage of growth in broadcasting and allow the other to focus on newspapers, an industry where revenue has been declining for years.Chicago-based Tribune owns 23 TV stations and cable network WGN America. Earlier this month, it announced plans to buy Local TV Holdings and its 19 television stations for $2.73 billion. It also owns eight daily newspapers, including The Baltimore Sun, Chicago Tribune and Los Angeles Times.Fellow media company News Corp. completed a split into separate publishing and entertainment companies late last month.Since the split became final on June 28, shares of News Corp., now a standalone publishing company that includes The Wall Street Journal, have edged up about 1 per cent to $15.37 by late trading Wednesday. Shares of Twenty-First Century Fox Inc., the entertainment company, have risen about 3 per cent to $29.95.The split would divide a company with a long, storied past. It was founded in 1847 with a hand-cranked print run of 400 copies of the Chicago Tribune. The company founded the WGN broadcasting brand with a radio station in 1924 and TV station in 1948. Tribune first went public in 1983 and expanded through the purchase of newspapers and TV stations. But a debt-heavy acquisition by Chicago real estate mogul Sam Zell in 2007 caused it to file for bankruptcy protection a year later.Tribune, which emerged from bankruptcy protection at the end of 2012, said that over the past several months its board and management have been looking at ways to ensure long-term growth and boost value for its stakeholders.Tribune said in February that it hired a pair of investment banks to help it sell its newspapers. The move was largely at the behest of the group of lenders that took over the company as part of its reorganization.Under the proposal announced Wednesday, the newspapers would be spun off into an independent company to be called Tribune Publishing Co.Alan Mutter, a media consultant and former newspaper editor, said the move “indicates Tribune could not find buyers to pay the price it was hoping to get for its publishing assets.”Tribune’s newspapers have been hurt by an industrywide shift that has driven more advertisers to the Internet. The downturn in print advertising was one of the factors that caused Tribune to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 2008.The remaining company, which would keep the Tribune Co. name, would include Tribune’s local television stations; WGN radioand cable networks; its television production, digital and media services ventures; and its interests in Classified Ventures, CareerBuilder, the Food Network and real estate.By holding onto the growing digital classifieds business and the real estate, Tribune Co. is decreasing the value of its newspaper group by at least a third, according to Ken Doctor, a newspaper industry analyst with Outsell Inc. Doctor previously valued Tribune’s newspaper business between $450 million and $700 million.Doctor said he expects Tribune will still try to sell the newspapers individually or as a group, but the spinoff will help clarify its focus on TV assets.“They want to make sure these assets don’t muddy the broadcast play and they set the clock to do that,” Doctor said.Tribune said its board will develop a detailed plan for the split over the next nine to 12 months. After the split is complete, the companies will have separate boards and management.

In a statement in the Birmingham Dogs Home’s end of year report, chairman Richard Temple Cox paid tribute to “hero” Mr Price.He thanked trustees for their work on the new facility, adding: “However, the real hero is the chief executive, Simon Price, who attended every design and site meeting over the 13-month contract period.”Dedicating the final section of the letter to Mr Price, he added: “Finally, I record my appreciation to Simon Price for his patience, understanding, support and friendship over the past six years.”We have shared a vision together and I hope not that the legacy of the new home will inspire future generations to extend the distinguishes history of this outstanding charity.”A West Midlands Police spokesman said: “A 52-year-old Solihull man has been arrested on suspicion of theft on morning of 11 November after a complaint was received from a Birmingham charity. An investigation is under way.” The chief executive of an animal charity has been arrested at an airport after £450,000 of donations were allegedly stolen from legacy donations.Simon Price, 52, has been the CEO at Birmingham Dogs Home since 2003 and was described in the chairman’s last statement as “the real hero” of the cause.Suspicions were said to have been raised after he married 37-year-old co-worker Alayna Warner in an extravagant wedding in September, with “people asking ‘how did he afford this?'”, it has been claimed.Trustees at the 122-year-old charity are said to have spoken to him about the missing cash at the end of October.

Kotsiras reforms the Victorian Multicultural Commission

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The role of the Victorian Multicultural Commission (VMC) “will be strengthened” according to the Minister for Multicultural Affairs Nicholas Kotsiras. The VMC will focus on giving “assistance to Victorians and providing honest and candid advice to the government” Mr Kotsiras said on Thursday. Mr Kotsiras recognised the role of the VMC as a “conduit between the Victorian community and the Victorian government”. In accordance with pre election commitments outlined in the Victorian Liberal Nationals Coalition Plan for a Multicultural Victoria, the Victorian Minister will replace the existing VMC with a new, “more independent public entity.” The policy and administrative functions formerly located within the VMC will now be transferred into an Office of Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship (OMAC), to be established within the Department of Premier and Cabinet. The new Commission will be able to “research, advise and report to the Minister on any matter relating to its objectives either initiated by itself or requested by the Minister. Membership of the Commission, will remain at 12 members, but it will include a youth representative and a representative from a peak community organisation. Eight Regional Advisory Councils will be established to work in partnership with the VMC and local communities, “operating as important conduits for information on regional settlement and service delivery” according to Mr Kotsiras. The Minister also said that the Baillieu Government will “establish a Ministerial Inter-departmental Multicultural Services Advisory Committee to co-ordinate a whole-of-government approach to multiculturalism and citizenship.” This committee will provide “an important additional link between the OMAC, VMC and government departments” said Mr Kotsiras “Victoria will continue to lead the rest of the nation in multicultural affairs and the Baillieu Government will implement initiatives that will ensure Victorians learn from each other and together help forge a more inclusive and harmonious society,” Mr Kotsiras said.last_img read more

first_img Pennywise, the creepiest clown alive, is coming back to torture the Losers’ Club: An official teaser trailer for It: Chapter Two is finally here, and it shows that some of Derry’s past citizens, even as adults, could never escape the horrifying nightmares and experiences of their past.On Thursday, Warner Bros. Pictures posted an It: Chapter Two teaser trailer on YouTube, and it shows all of the Losers’ Club members, who are all grown up and revisiting their spooky New England town.

Boasting about busy life may be new status symbol

first_img‘Humblebragging’ – or boasting about how hectic your life may be the new status symbol, according to Harvard researchers, including one of Indian origin.Researchers found that being seen as constantly busy and overworked is the new way to prove that one is ‘in demand’.Taking the afternoon off for a round of golf or enjoying a beach holiday in a five-star resort were once signs of having social capital.However, phrases such as ‘I have no life’ and ‘I desperately need a holiday’ are now used to imply social standing, researchers said. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfWhile ordering food shopping online is the perfect way to prove to neighbours that you are simply too busy and important to go to the supermarket.”Movies, magazines, and popular TV shows often highlight the abundance of money and leisure time among the wealthy,” said Neeru Paharia, an assistant professor at Harvard University in the US.”In recent years, featuring wealthy people relaxing by the pool or on a yacht, playing tennis and polo, or skiing and hunting are being replaced with ads featuring busy individuals who work long hours and have very limited leisure time,” Paharia told The Telegraph. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”Displaying one’s busyness at work and lack of leisure time operates as a visible signal of status in the eyes of others,” she said.The study, carried out in the US, found that brands that marketed themselves as timesaving were becoming increasingly high-status, because of the people who used them.However, in Italy the effect was completely reversed. Italians still view a leisurely life as representative of high status, researchers said.last_img read more

The Arrival of WebBased Printing

first_imgOctober 7, 2010 Earlier this fall, imaging giant HP announced a cloud-based desktop printer, the HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus ($300, after $100 rebate from HP). Cloud-based printers connect directly to the Web via any broadband connection and can send and receive Web content like files, software and live news. Cloud-based printers can also print without a PC, which offers smaller firms the fascinating option of creating a Web-enabled walk-up imaging work station without the expense of having a full-blown computer to support it.As promised, the 8500A all-in-one bakes in all usual small-business imaging tools like printing, scanning, faxing and copying. But the 8500A also has its own Web address, can print without a PC and connects directly to the Web wirelessly or via a landed Ethernet connection. The unit is controlled with a 4.3-inch, iPhone-like, touch-activated screen that supports — get ready for this — iPhone-like apps.Approach this printer and you’ll get the option to copy, fax, scan or access coupons, read news from MSNBC or access business forms.Intrigued about what PC-less, Web-based, app-enabled printing might do the calculus of small-business imaging, I asked HP to send over a demo 8500A and used it in my six-person digital content company for about three weeks.Things to Love The 8500A is a first quality all-in-oneThe better all-in-one basics are here: 35 max pages per minute for average-density black-and-white pages and 34 for color. But plan on much slower speeds for photos, though image quality is excellent. Expect to wait about 20 seconds for the unit to boot up to print. There is direct-to-e-mail printing and receiving, and other nice features like two-sided ID printing, copy-fix features that adjust for bad scans and water-resistant inks that don’t run. Overall, it’s a nice unit.The Web-based features really set this thing apartThe news here is in the apps, which are activated buy an Apps logo on the touch screen, right next to scan functions. It leads to a series of software apps that range from kids’ stuff like Disney and Nickelodeon content to hard-core, small-biz tools like paper forms, pre-made document layouts, and believe it or not, news. HP has content relationships with, among others, MSNBC, USA Today and about a dozen or so big-traffic blogs. The printer then pulls them all together into a live news feed that is updated several times a day and can be printed directly from the machine with no PC; which opens an intriguing argument about how to view business information. I found passing a hard copy of news to my team was not that bad an idea. Shocker: Folks read it.Web control of your printingThe 8500’s app system and its many printer controls are managed by a la the iPhone and iTunes software from the HP ePrint web site, which is linked to your unique printer. Updating of apps is fast and robust. There are nice controls on content and some security features, plus some good support pages. Set up was fast and easy. If only iTunes worked this well.Things to HateThe death knell of the notion of the paperless digital officeYou will print. And print. And print some more with this unit: news, cards, reports, information, it all felt like a diabolical plot to amp up printing. Who know what actual print output will be long term, but as of now there is a 3-inch stack of paper sitting near this device, and it’s only been here for a week.Not enough appsApps are not just limited; they are basically non-existent. The HP website featured about two dozen apps, most with little small-business utility: some simple tools for forms, the new tie-in and online design tools. Unless the catalogue of software improves, there will not be much utility here.High cost of entryThese days, $300 is just not cheap for a desktop printer. Even powerful business, all-in-ones can be had for about half that price, with entry level printers running less than $50. Plus the actual cost per page is an unknown. The full set of black and white, blue, red and yellow replacement cartridges grosses up to $114 before taxes. And cost per page can vary widely depending on what and how often you print; but considering replacement cartridges for lower cost printers can be about as half the price, translating the gee-whiz factor of the 8500A into bottom-line results could be tricky.HP responded that more apps are due out in November, including new tools from Google and Reuters. And it is comfortable with it is charging for inks and hardware.Know what this printer can do, but be sure you need one before you buyIf this 8500 were priced around $200, and cartridges were price around $50 for a set, I would be all over it. But at these prices, you have to be careful. My gut is that for collateral-oriented shops, this unit will pay for itself with fewer trips to outside vendors like FedEx Office. Other businesses will need to take a harder look at the unit to understand what PC-less, cloud-based printing is and see whether it can work for them.I intend to be keep this unit in the testing fleet for a good, long time to see where costs and utility really are. So while some bumps in this product may keep many firms away, I fully expect that by this time next year, no firm will not want buy a printer that is not Web-enabled.Let’s be clear here: Cloud-based printing is the biggest thing to happen to desktop imaging since the laser jet.   Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Three pet lions removed from private home rooftop in Mexico City

first_imgMexico City, Mexico — A homeowner who had three lions living on the roof has been reported to animal welfare in Mexico City.A neighbor made the complaint to animal services after seeing the three lions living in a semi-enclosed space on the roof with a dog. The animals consisted of two female lions and one male along with a rottweiler.All four were photographed living on an adapted roof in the area of Iztacalco in Mexico City. Sárika Savic, the neighbor, said one day she noticed movement on the roof. Assuming it was dogs, she quickly realized they were lions.She filed an official complaint with authorities who visited the home. Omar Rodríguez, the owner of the animals, said that he acquired them in a lion farm, adding that all paperwork was in order and he had acquired them legally, having had the lions since they were infants.He said he had the lions for his grandchildren and that all necessary security was in place.However, after paying a visit to the home, officials from the Federal Office of Environmental Protection said they have seized all three lions, whose names are Nohosh, Numbi and Gorda. They said the animals were removed after the owner failed to prove the legal paperwork needed. They also said that the homeowner failed to provide the necessary security to keep such animals in captivity.“We observed that the conditions were not suitable to keep felines. Although they are on a roof and they are enclosed, it is an open place. It is not a place that has the proper conditions,” said Joel González Moreno, General Director of Inspection and Surveillance of Wildlife, Marine Resources and Coastal Ecosystems of Profepa.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more
