Textile test and analysis, for example, would normally have in-person labs but have transitioned to an online format where students are testing the performance of textile products from home. From virtual fashion week shows to brands changing their traditional schedules, COVID-19 has reinvented the fashion industry. Read more: Second-Hand September: Clothing outlets encourage eco-friendly fashionFashion merchandising major Izzy Fleming said much of the merchandise brands put on the market before COVID-19 will continue “to recycle within the market for the coming seasons due to the pandemic.”“These times are a lot harder because some of us don’t know what the fashion world is going to look like today or even next year,” said Fleming.According to the Business of Fashion, TCU is not the only university adjusting to the new changes within fashion schooling.Fashion students at other universities have experienced fashion labs in a remote setting where staff and faculty are developing “creative techniques with students to make fashion more accessible.” Browning-Samoni said students should start asking themselves what they want to do when they begin working in the field and if they are prepared to adjust to a slightly different job.“Opportunities are going to look different; things are going to look different,” she said. “You might not get that dream job in New York City. They may want you working from home.”To find out more changes regarding the TCU fashion merchandising department, click here.

Russia: Editor of local independent newspaper jailed in Kaliningrad

first_img Receive email alerts November 8, 2017 – Updated on November 9, 2017 Russia: Editor of local independent newspaper jailed in Kaliningrad News RussiaEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses CorruptionJudicial harassmentViolenceImprisonedCouncil of Europe Listed as a “foreign agent”, Russia’s most popular independent website risks disappearing News June 2, 2021 Find out more News Help by sharing this information RSF_en Читать по-русски / Read in RussianReporters Without Borders (RSF) strongly condemns the detention of Igor Rudnikov, an outspoken journalist in Russia’s western enclave of Kaliningrad, in an apparent attempt to close the weekly newspaper he edits, Novye Kolesa, one of the region’s few independent media outlets.Rudnikov, who is also a member of the Kaliningrad regional assembly, was subjected to violence when arrested on 1 November and was placed in pre-trial detention two days later on charges that strongly suggest an act of political revenge. RSF calls for his immediate release.The security personnel who arrested Rudnikov acted as if he were a dangerous criminal. He lost consciousness a few hours after his arrest and, according to the doctors who examined him, he had sustained a broken arm and several contusions.At 2 a.m. on 2 November, members of the Federal Security Service (FSB) nonetheless fetched him from the hospital where he had been taken in order to conduct a search of his home and then, still in the early hours of the morning, take him in his underwear before a judicial investigator.Although his health is poor as a result of two attempts to murder him, in 1998 and 2016, he was placed in provisional detention for at least two months on the evening of 3 November. Masked men in camouflage attire meanwhile conducted a search of Novye Kolesa.Rudnikov is facing a possible 15-year jail sentence on a charge of blackmailing Gen. Viktor Ledenev, the head of the local branch of the Investigative Committee, which is responsible for investigating the most serious crimes in Russia.Novye Kolesa co-founder Svetlana Berezovskaya was arrested at the end of a meeting with Gen. Ledenev during which he gave her 50,000 dollars hidden in package of documents. She was a quickly released and is now being treated as a witness in the case against Rudnikov.The defence points to the case’s many procedural flaws and the lack of any evidence of actual extortion. Local journalists regard the case as the result of a trap set by Ledenev to get rid of Rudnikov, who had accused him of corruption. Novye Kolesa had suggested, inter alia, that he owned a luxurious country home that had not been declared.“Too many factors indicate that a crude attempt to close one the region’s few independent media outlets is the real reason for the charges against Igor Rudnikov,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “We call for his immediate release, the withdrawal of all charges, and an investigation into the violence against him at the time of his arrest.”Rudnikov is well known locally for combatting government corruption and embezzlement. Created in 1995, Novye Kolesa is used to every form of harassment including lawsuits and police raids as well as the attempts to murder its founder.In the latest of these, in March 2016, Rudnikov was stabbed five times in broad daylight in the centre of Kaliningrad. One of his assailants, a former police officer, was sentenced in June to 18 months in prison on a charge of aggravated assault.After the verdict was overturned on appeal, the charge was changed to attempted murder but Rudnikov and his fellow journalists have called for it to be amended to “attempted murder of a political or public figure,” a more serious charge that would remove the investigation from the local Investigative Committee’s control.Russia is ranked 148th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

Two journalists killed, two missing and two wounded

first_img News News 23.3.03 – update at 20:00 GMT – The British ITV News (ITN) announced the death of its special correspondent Terry Lloyd. Australian freelance cameraman Paul Moran (see photo), working for the Australian TV network ABC, was killed in a car bomb explosion in Iraqi Kurdistan. Australian cameraman Paul Moran, 39, of the Australian ABC TV network, was killed on 22 March in a car bomb explosion in Iraqi Kurdistan. ABC correspondent Eric Campbell, who was with him, was wounded. The attack was at a checkpoint outside the village of Khormal, near the Iranian border. The journalists were waiting to enter the village to talk to refugees when a taxi appeared behind them and exploded.The border area, stronghold of the Kurdish Islamist group Ansar al-Islam, had been attacked by US missiles the night before. A photographer who witnessed the blast said the car bomb was aimed at the many journalists who were at the checkpoint.Another group of journalists, including a reporter and a photographer from Newsweek magazine, were caught in gunfire on the road to Basra on 22 March. None of them was hurt and they were picked up by US forces.Reporters Without Borders is shocked at these two deaths and the fact that two others are missing. The victims have paid a high price for their determination to inform the public freely and fully about the military operations in Iraq. In a war that also includes a fierce media battle, the task of seeking independent information is especially vital if world public opinion is to avoid being the target of manipulation and propaganda.”These tragedies must not be used by the warring parties as a pretext to further reduce the freedom of journalists to do their job in the war zone,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard.The organisation insists that the warring parties avoid all action that knowingly endangers the lives and safety of those in the media. It notes that four journalists were killed in the 1991 Gulf War. German photographer Gad Gross was executed by the Iraqi army in Iraqi Kurdistan and three British freelance journalists working for the BBC TV are thought to have been killed by their Turkish guide.These new deaths are more names on the long list of journalists killed while doing their job. Between 1992 and 2002, more than 500 were killed, nearly half of them in war zones and 73 per cent after being identified as journalists and killed in attacks or gunfire. Only 27 per cent of the deaths were accidental.

NYC Ballet sued over member’s alleged sharing of nude photos

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) —  A 19-year-old ballerina who’s suing New York City Ballet said it’s “kind of disappointing to think back to when I was younger and how I idolized the place and the people in it.”“And now,” Alexandra Waterbury, a former student at the company, told “Good Morning America” in an interview, “it’s just a shame.”Waterbury filed a lawsuit filed Tuesday in New York State Supreme Court that lists as defendants City Ballet and former principal dancer Chase Finlay, whom she dated and who allegedly shared naked photos of her with other male performers.The suit alleges that a group of male dancers regularly shared with each other nude photos of female dancers and that a “fraternity-like atmosphere permeates the Ballet and its dancers and emboldens them to disregard the law and violate the basic rights of women.”Finlay’s attorney said in a statement the lawsuit is “nothing more than allegations that should not be taken as fact. Matters such as these should and will be litigated in courtrooms where the truth can emerge rather than in the media.”City Ballet Chairman Charles Scharf said in a statement that the company “vehemently denies” the allegations.Scharf said the company had not condoned any of the alleged behavior and that it “has no liability for the actions specified in the complaint and has taken the appropriate disciplinary actions for the dancers involved.”“New York City Ballet is confident that there is no basis for this lawsuit, and vehemently denies the allegations that the company has condoned, encouraged, or fostered the kind of activity that Mr. Finlay and the others named have participated in, which were off-hours activities that were not known, approved, or facilitated by NYCB,” according to the statement.He added of the allegations: “We investigated them and found that the actions had violated the Company’s norms of conduct, and immediate and appropriate action was taken.”Waterbury grew up “idolizing” Finlay, who’s about seven years older than her, but it wasn’t long after they started dating that he was “abusive in every way — physically, emotionally, mentally. He was really manipulative,” she told “GMA.”Waterbury said she discovered the photos while using Finlay’s personal computer“He was leaving for the airport for a job at 4 in the morning, so he let me stay at his apartment,” she recalled. “And I woke up in the morning to check my email, and he had given me the password to his laptop, so I logged on. And the first thing that popped up was an unsaved number with some pretty descriptive language. That just wasn’t OK. I was just like, ‘What is this?’ and it just got worse and worse.”Waterbury said she saw on the computer conversations with women but also with men, “all of whom I would’ve considered friends … that were just really misogynistic and vulgar and just cruel. It was a lot to take in.”When she confronted Finlay about the alleged conversations and photos, Waterbury said, “he just had nothing to say.”She’d been disappointed it took so long for the ballet company to address the situation, Waterbury added.“They could’ve apologized,” she told “GMA.” “They could apologize publicly. They could address the situation at least. I’m disappointed in the fact that it took four months for any action to be taken, especially since I’m a former student of theirs, especially since there are board members with daughters in my class. Just kind of weak to not say or do anything for such a long period of time.”Her lawsuit seeks, among other things, an “order permanently restraining defendants from engaging in such unlawful conduct” and unspecified monetary damages.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Real Good Food Co sees return to fortunes

first_imgThe Real Good Food Company has announced a return to fortunes following a flat year in 2008, with Hayden’s Bakery and Renshaw leading the revival.Hayden’s was on track for 30% growth by the end of this year on 2008, and demand for Renshaw’s products are currently matching that of its peak Christmas season.Bakery ingredients supplier Renshaw, which has been decoupled from group sister company Napier Brown, having been loosely merged in a cost-cutting exercise, was seeing a boom in home baking products. New lines have been earmarked for specialist home baking through retail channels, as well as professional bakery ingredients, for the fouth quarter of 2010.Speaking at the group AGM today (Thursday), chairman Peter Totte said: “Renshaw is motoring, there’s no two ways about it, and there are many growth opportunities that we can build on. We’re busier than at Christmas and that looks set to continue throughout the year.”He added that Hayden’s Bakery, which supplies Marks & Spencer, Waitrose and Costa, had fixed its “broken management model” and had refocused its strategy on being a “market-led business rather than manufacturing led”. This had led to a the launch of 40 products through Waitrose in October last year.Said Totte: “Hayden’s has continued its strong sales growth and the newly-completed management team is delivering on our expectations for the turnaround of this business. The challenge now is to deliver a modernisation plan for this business, as it expands into 55,000sq ft of additional space next month, but the strength of its relationships with key customers means we look forward to a good performance in the seasonally stronger second half of the year.”Meanwhile, sugar supplier Napier Brown predicted a rise in sugar market prices of 10% over the next two years.“Our Napier sugar business is in a transitional year, following the EU sugar regime changes, but is starting to build momentum ahead of the new contract season in October,” said Totte. “The market is expecting price increases and, in terms of supply, there have been some shortages of sugar globally. Within the EU the market is tight, albeit just in balance. Negotiations for the new season are well under way and I am optimistic that we will start to see growth in both volumes and profitability.”last_img read more

News story: D-Day 75: events to mark 75th anniversary of Normandy Landings announced

first_img 75 years ago the forces of 13 Allied countries gathered in Britain before launching the historic operation to liberate Europe. Winston Churchill rightly said that D-Day was “undoubtedly the most complicated and difficult” operation that had ever taken place. This June we will show our veterans that the debt to them is never forgotten for the price they paid for the freedom and peace we now enjoy. Events to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day in June 2019 have been announced at an event at The D-Day Story in Portsmouth.Vice Chief of the Defence Staff General Sir Gordon Messenger announced the official commemorations during a visit to The D-Day Story in Portsmouth. The Ministry of Defence has worked with The Royal British Legion and Portsmouth City Council to organise a series of events to take place in Portsmouth and Normandy.The centrepiece of the D-Day 75 programme will be a specially-chartered ship which will carry D-Day veterans to key commemorations in Portsmouth and Normandy in June. The ship, chartered with funds from The Royal British Legion and a LIBOR grant from HM Treasury, will offer the veterans and their carers accommodation and travel for the duration of their visit at no cost to them.Welcoming the announcement, Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said: Earlier today, the Defence Secretary published an open letter to D-Day veterans inviting them to register to take part in the commemorations. The key commemoration events will include an inauguration at the site of the Normandy Memorial Trust’s British Normandy Memorial and The Royal British Legion’s services at Bayeux Cathedral and Bayeux Cemetery. The commemorations will conclude with an evening of music and entertainment for veterans beside the beaches at Arromanches.Portsmouth, from where much of the D-Day landing force sailed in 1944, will be the focal point of the UK commemorations and will host the UK national event on 5 June 2019. Portsmouth City Council is planning a series of events over five days to reflect the area’s unique role in one of the largest and well-known military operations in history.Cllr Gerald Vernon Jackson, Leader, Portsmouth City Council said: D-Day veterans or those who would like to help a veteran attend the commemorations are asked to register with The Royal British Legion using the forms available on their website.The Royal British Legion’s Commemorative Events Lead, Bob Gamble OBE, said: This June the city will be the focal point for reflection on the events of 1944. Veterans, military personnel and civilians will commemorate those lost and celebrate the achievements of the operation that sailed from Portsmouth 75 years ago. It’s fitting that we’re revealing the programme of events for D-Day 75 at The D-Day Story – the museum which has captured the human stories of those involved in that epic event. As we mark 75 years since the largest seaborne invasion the world has ever seen we salute the bravery and sacrifice of all those who took part in liberating Europe. We invite those who wish to attend the events to commemorate their historic achievements to get in touch with the Legion and join our all-costs-covered journey by ship back to France. The veterans will be the VIPs at this event and we will make sure their every need is catered for as they travel back to Normandy to take part in this landmark event.last_img read more
