Those experiences changed my life.”It was in Indonesia that Richardson was introduced to shadow puppetry, especially the world famous Javanese wayang theater. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Published 11:00 pm Tuesday, June 28, 2011 “Discovering the world of shadow puppet theater is one of the most important events of my life as an artist,” Richardson said. “There is a particular satisfaction for me creating new works in a tradition that maintains continuity with an ancient past.“Even in an age of computer animation, there is a mysterious quality of being alive that happens when a leather puppet is worked against a cloth screen. With the past as my guide, it is a privilege to explore new ideas and stories with the luminous, entrancing world of the leather puppet.”With thousands of marionette and shadow puppet performances to his credit, Richardson is considered a master at his craft, Colvin said.“We are very fortunate to have Michael Richardson perform at our Summer Library Program,” she said. “This was a unique experience for our children. They were amazed and delighted by the shadow puppets and their stories. This is an experience that they will long remember. Not many children have that wonderful fun-learning experience.

United States Issues Sanctions on Guatemalan Drug Lord’s Children and Companies

first_imgBy Dialogo November 19, 2012 It’s obvious that it’s okay they do that to them. Children shouldn’t be mistreated On November 14, the U.S. Treasury Department announced sanctions on alleged drug lord Waldemar Lorenzada Lima’s two children and eight companies because he is considered the link between Colombian mafias and Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel. Ovaldino Lorenzana, 44, and Marta Julia Lorenzana, 36, were officially charged as drug dealers, for which all their assets in the United States may be seized. American nationals cannot do business with them or their enterprises without facing criminal charges. Waldemar Lorenzana Lima, age 72, aka “El Patriarca,” is under arrest in Guatemala with his son Eliu Elixander, both awaiting extradition to the United States, confirmed the Guatemalan justice last August. The Lorenzana family comes from Zacapa, east of Guatemala, where they have established a wide network of companies and personnel to manage Colombian cocaine before sending it to the United States. last_img read more

CBM extension needed to avoid litigation during recovery

first_img continue reading » CUNA supports bipartisan Senate efforts to extend the Covered Business Method (CBM) review program at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), it wrote to Sens. David Perdue (R-Ga.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) Tuesday. The Senators support efforts to extend the CBM program, which is scheduled to expire Sept. 15.The CBM program was created by Congress in 2012 (part of the American Invents Act (AIA)) to help cut back on a large increase in business method patent litigation driven largely by Non-Practicing Entities asserting low-quality business method patents. The program allows the USPTO to review whether the patent in question should have been granted in the first place.“The program has been working. A recent study by the Perryman Group found the AIA and its collective review programs have ‘saved U.S. jobs and helped drive substantial economic gains over the past decade’ including an estimated $2.95 billion in GDP growth between 2014-2019,’” the letter reads. “Compared to other court proceedings, the USPTO provides a process which takes less time to reach a decision, costs less to use and operate, and leverages a pool of over 200 judges with specialized patent experience.”The letter also cites recent data referenced by the Government Accountability Office that some patent owners are waiting for the CBM to expire to assert patents.

Beirut blast trauma adds new wounds to old scars

first_imgBut before Carla could pull herself together, her elderly neighbor, who had survived the 1975-1990 civil war, was already busy sweeping the floor.”This is a reflex from the war, whenever something breaks they just sweep it up,” Carla said. She is now staying with her family, and said she is not emotionally ready to move back to her blast-hit home.Even at her parents’ house, she cannot sleep. “A car driving by on the street becomes the sound of an airplane,” she said in English.”Everything now triggers memories of the 2006 war… I had never realized how much that war actually had traumatized me.” Those episodes are over, but for some the traumas they left are still vivid — and last week’s explosion has added yet another scar to the collective psyche.Carla was on her balcony in an old Beirut neighborhood when she felt her building shake.”I initially thought it was an air raid because I associated the noise with what I remembered from the 2006 war,” the 28-year-old told AFP.After the explosion pulverized her windows, she rushed to the stairwell, petrified. ‘Psychological pressure’ Doctors of the World, an international charity, spent several days in the leveled Karantina district, overlooking blast site. Its staff knocked on doors in the area to offer residents free psychological support. In the first days after the explosion, residents were too busy seeking medical treatment or clearing debris from their homes. But as a  kind of normality slowly returned, they seemed more ready to speak, said Noelle Jouane, director of the charity’s mental health program.”It helps relieve all of their anger,” she told AFP.But in the devastated district of Mar Mikhael, the slightest thud sparks alarm. At the entrance to the neighborhood, an old man was startled by the bang of a hammer against an iron plate. He immediately ducked and pressed his body against the hood of his car. “It’s nothing,” a passerby reassured him.  Moments later, fear gripped the entire street, with people scrambling out after rumors spread that the August 4 blast site had once again caught fire.Panic, fear, and in some cases a certain detachment from reality are among the “normal reactions to abnormal events,” said Rima Makki, the mental health activity manager for Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in Lebanon.The port blast came as Lebanon was grappling with its worst economic crisis in decades — compounded by the coronavirus pandemic.”The whole of society was already under psychological pressure,” Makki said.”A traumatic incident of this magnitude, obviously, will have repercussions.” Tanya can’t be alone in a room. Carla, for days, thought a war was starting. Survivors of Beirut’s August 4 blast are still in shock over a disaster that disfigured their city.The earth-shaking explosion killed 171 people and wounded more than 6,000, a sickening blow to a country already in crisis.Almost every generation in Lebanon has experienced some kind of conflict, whether the 1975-1990 civil war or the 2006 hostilities with Israel.center_img Topics : ‘Haunting’ Tanya, 32, was in central Beirut when the explosion tore through buildings around her. “The first two days I was constantly crying,” the accountant said.”But something inside was telling me: what are you crying about? I am safe, my family is safe, our house is safe.”But the mother of two said she also felt “guilt for surviving.” She said she didn’t remember much from the moment of the blast, but the bruises on her body remind her of what happened.Now, she is too scared to be alone. “During the day it’s easier, but at night I can’t. I ask someone to stay by my side,” she said.Omar, a visual artist, believes he could have been killed or disfigured by the explosion that ravaged his neighborhood. Luckly, the man in his thirties was not at home at the time. “Knifes flew from the kitchen, the entire glass facade shattered in the house,” he said. “Just the image, the possibility of me being here was haunting.”During a massive anti-government rally near parliament on Saturday, a fatigued Omar suddenly felt like demonstrations were going nowhere, although he had participated in several similar rallies since a protest movement emerged in October. “I felt how can we return to the same place we were a few month ago despite… this catastrophic event,” he said. Two people he knew died in the disaster.”I don’t know how or if one can get over something like that,” he added.”I mean you continue your life, but you continue it differently.”last_img read more
