Des cordes de violon en fils de toile daraignée

first_imgDes cordes de violon en fils de toile d’araignéePubliant ses travaux dans un prochain numéro de Physical Review Letters, un chercheur japonais a fabriqué des cordes de violon avec des fils de soie secrétés par des araignées. Résultats : un meilleur son et une plus grande résistance que les matériaux classiques, paraît-il.S’intéressant depuis des années aux propriétés mécaniques des soies secrétées par les araignées (pour tisser leur toile), Shigeyoshi Osaki, de l’Université de Nara (Japon), a mis au point des méthodes pour obtenir de grandes quantités de cette soie, à partir de 300 spécimens femelles de l’espèce Nephila maculata élevés en captivité. Et il a imaginé une application inattendue à ce matériau.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Torsadant en faisceau 3 à 5.000 brins individuels de cette soie, puis torsadant à nouveau entre eux, 3 par 3, les faisceaux  ainsi obtenus, il a fabriqué… des cordes à violon. En mesurant leur résistance à la traction – un facteur critique pour les violonistes, qui souhaitent éviter de casser une corde en plein concerto –, il a alors constaté des performances certes inférieures au boyau, (désormais rarement employé), mais supérieures à la combinaison nylon-aluminium utilisée pour les instruments modernes. Les qualités acoustiques de violons ainsi équipés ont également été testées.”Les instruments à cordes frottées tels que le violon ont fait l’objet de nombreuses études scientifiques. Toutefois, tous les détails n’ont pas été clarifiés, la plupart des gens s’étant intéressés au corps du violon plutôt qu’aux propriétés de l’archet ou des cordes. (..) Plusieurs violonistes professionnels ont indiqué que les cordes en toile d’araignée … généraient un timbre préférable, capable de créer une nouvelle musique. Les cordes de violon sont une nouvelle utilisation pratique de la soie d’araignée comme produit à haute valeur ajoutée”, conclut le Dr Osaki cité par BBC News.Le 10 mars 2012 à 17:32 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

National Journal Magazine to Cease Publication By Years End

National Journal Magazine to Cease Publication By Years End

first_img Bradley moved the National Journal Group away from a subscription-based model to a membership-driven one back in 2011. Since then, the membership business has grown 38 percent with 1,000 members accounting for more than half of the brand’s total revenue, says the company. Nevertheless, the weekly magazine’s performance has been on an opposite trajectory—a “gentle decline,” described Bradley in the memo. The spokesperson says the magazine has had revenue declines over the last couple years. The 46-year-old magazine will close by the end of the year. Atlantic Media announced this afternoon that it will be shutting down National Journal magazine. “Given the needs of our audience—the Washington market and the advertisers—the decision was made to get in front and invest where there’s greater future growth: day-to-day and hour-by-hour editorial coverage and in membership services,” the spokesperson says. According to Bradley, an effort will be made to keep as many of the 10-15 magazine staff as possible—”I’m not drawn, here, to proposing layoffs,” he said—but there is an expectation that staff will be reduced. “I’ve decided that the National Journal should move the whole of its journalism to the higher-velocity work of our daily publications, National Journal Daily and Hotline, and to our hour-by-hour coverage on NationalJournal.com,” said Atlantic Media chairman David Bradley in a memo to employees. Editor Richard Just will continue to lead the magazine and staff through the end of the year. “As with [the staff], he’s also just recently gotten this news and I expect thinking through what this means for him,” says a spokesperson. “Of course it goes without saying that we’d love to have him stay with Atlantic Media in some capacity, and as David wrote in his memo, he’s an ‘exquisite talent.'” Instead, the brand will expand on its digitally-oriented and faster-moving daily membership content, which the weekly print product couldn’t keep up with in both frequency and revenues. And the savings from no longer producing a print product will be reallocated primarily to expanding coverage for the print and digital National Journal Daily. Plans also call for overhauling NationalJournal.com with a more mobile-friendly design and spinning off the Next America vertical onto its own platform.last_img read more

Halo Spartan Assault preview is everything you hoped it would be

first_imgMicrosoft is hoping that their soon to be released exclusive for Windows Phone and Windows 8 will be the final straw that causes some users to consider switching platforms. While it’s too early to say whether or not Spartan lightning has struck twice, the early preview of the game we were treated to recently is nothing short of impressive.343 Studios took on one of the biggest modern gaming franchises and sought to make new games that resonate even deeper with the core of Halo fandom. With over 11 years of heritage, including a library of books filled with extra backstory and character development, they had a lot to go from. Halo 4 upset a chunk of the core audience with the visual changes and the return to a world where Master Chief couldn’t dual wield, but from a story perspective the game was absolutely amazing.What made this experience even more impressive was the extra gameplay scenarios, where you play a Spartan being guided through missions by UNSC Commander Sarah Palmer. Unlike the Spartan Ops of Halo 4, you’ll actually be playing as Palmer for this mobile version of Halo.The big question is how well does the Halo we all know and love translate onto smartphones and tablets? Halo: Spartan Assault is a top down shooter that takes some visual cues from Halo Wars, where you’re at just enough of an angle to make everything seem just a bit more 3D. Controlling your character happens with a pair of virtual joysticks as well as a host of buttons that live around the edge of your device. You use the left thumb for moving, and the right thumb for shooting in whatever direction you point in. The button layout for the game depends on the kind of device you are playing on.If you’re on a tablet, you have separate buttons for weapon switching, ammo readout, and two different grenade throw keys. On a phone, however, your ammo readout and weapon switcher are one and the same. Both versions of the UI feature a generic action button, which does everything from climbing into vehicles to setting explosive charges in missions.Most of the weapons in this game are auto targeting. If you’re using a battle rifle, for example, if you hold down fire in any one direction it will shift from target to target as long as there are more enemies in that direction. Pistols and sniper rifles will aim for the nearest target when you flick your thumb in their direction. Spartan Lasers and machine gun turrets will not auto target, since they spray a line of hurt in the direction you are pointing your weapon. Grenades are the exception, as they will only auto target when your body if facing the enemy. It is not enough to simply be shooting in that direction with grenades.Vehicle control is an interesting aspect of Halo: Spartan Assault. In the preview, the Wraith was the only vehicle available. For this vehicle, you need to use your left stick to go forward and back and strafe while you use your other stick to control the nose of the vehicle. The right stick will also fire the plasma turret on the side of the vehicle. If you want to fire the plasma cannon, you flick the right stick and a ball of plasma will be fired in whatever direction the Wraith is pointed. This steering method takes some getting used to, and it will be interesting to see how this translates for other vehicles.It’s clear, just from the preview, that there’s quite a bit to do in Halo: Spartan Assault. The game itself is broken out into multiple chapters, with missions inside those chapters that play into a common story arc. This should be familiar to anyone who played the Spartan Ops section in Halo 4.In a brief conversation with Halo franchise manager Kevin Grace of 343 Studios , it was made clear that the storyline for this game would continue telling Sarah Palmer’s story while offering some insight into the Spartan 4 program from the books. Nothing about the preview missions gave any insight into the actual story for the game, in fact it wasn’t even clear that we were playing as Palmer until told that was who the main Spartan was in this game.While there were no Windows 8 devices at the preview event other than the Surface RT, members of the Surface team were on hand to confirm that the game would run the same on all hardware types. Despite being considered a slow and often laggy tablet, Halo: Spartan Assault played flawlessly on the Surface RT demo units on hand at the event. Halo: Spartan Assault will first be made available on Windows Phones later this month, starting with the Lumia 928 on Verizon Wireless. Shortly after this launch, the game will come to the Windows Store and be available on everything from the Surface RT on up.

MovieBob Reviews BABY DRIVER 2017

first_img Is Baby Driver GoodVery good!Wow! That sounds enthusiastic!It’s been a rough year…So what’s this one about?It’s a bank-heist/car-chase/young-adult/romance/action/musical/comedy set in Atlanta, Georgia.…you’re gonna have to be more specific.Ansel Elgort plays “Baby,” a soft-hearted twenty-something kid with near-supernatural (superhuman, at least) car-driving skills who, because of a childhood accident, has to listen to music 24/7 in order to drown out a constant ringing in his ears. He owes a substantial debt to a ruthless (but also oddly laid-back) criminal mastermind played by Kevin Spacey, who forces him to use his automotive skills as the getaway driver for a series of daring bank heists. Not long after squaring this debt, he meets and falls hard for a diner waitress with a heart of gold who offers him love and a chance at a normal life, but he soon finds that a life of crime is not as easy to escape as he’d hope and finds himself stuck in a rapidly-deteriorating series of chaotic events that will challenge what he thought he knew about his criminal colleagues and ultimately force him to get his hands dirty in a way he’d been desperately trying to avoid.That sounds like a Jason Statham movie.Basically, yeah; but with a tone and main character more suited to a Nicholas Sparks YA Romance thing. Also, the conceit of Baby effectively “scoring” every moment of his life with several iPods full of eclectic pop music means there’s a song underpinning almost every scene more or less turns it into a kind of action-musical.This sounds insufferable. What’s so good about it??Well, it’s directed by Edgar Wright, so…Oh! Now I want to see it! You should probably have led with that.Yeah, Edgar Wright basically specializes in movies that should be completely insufferable but actually turn out kind of great (see: Pilgrim, Scott), and this is right in that wheelhouse. “The Transporter: Heartwarming Millennial Musical Romp Edition” sounds like pure torture, but when you’ve got a timing, pacing and scene-geography savant-like Wright directing and a killer cast (Elgort, Spacey, Jamie Foxx, Jon Bernthal, Eiza Gonzalez, Lily James, John Hamm) bringing their A-game it all kind of clicks into place. It’s a very fast-paced, involving, compelling little movie that doesn’t overreach – despite all the weight and excitement that gets attached to every Edgar Wright project by the critical set; it really is “just” a mid-scale action movie with a more whimsical romantic subplot and a slick soundtrack. And that’s just fine.Is Baby an interesting hero?He is. I didn’t expect anything special out of Elgort based on his previous movies, but he brings it here in a really challenging and different kind of role. There’s something… “off” about Baby that the film never specifically identifies. But it’s an unusual energy that makes him at once compelling, off-putting, weirdly intimidating but also weirdly child-like; and once the plot has been laid out the film is mostly driven by the way the other ostensibly older, jaded “grown-up” characters and compelled to act toward him. Some friendly, some bullying, some nurturing, some hurtful, some bouncing back and forth between all of the above. It’s as though his actual personality is so guarded and inscrutable that the other characters are driven to project one onto him. And that’s an interesting “real-feeling” dynamic that ultimately pays off with a freewheeling third act where surprise character turns as to which of the “bad guys” are or are not actually “bad” plays out in clever, interesting ways.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

The content is provided for information purposes only. © 2014 Phys.org , arXiv Quantum holograms as atomic scale memory keepsake Explore further In a new study published in Physical Review Letters, researchers have developed a new method for manipulating light scattering. They theoretically show how to induce transparency in otherwise opaque materials using the complex dipole-dipole interactions present in a large number of interacting quantum emitters, such as atoms or molecules. This ability could have several potential applications, such as producing slow light or stopped light, along with applications in the field of attosecond physics.”The significance of our work is in the discovery of a very neat phenomenon (dipole-induced electromagnetic transparency [DIET]), which may be used to control light propagation in optically active media,” coauthor Eric Charron, Professor at the University of Paris-Sud in Orsay, France, told Phys.org. “We showed how light scattering by a nanometric size system, collectively responding through strongly coupled two-level atoms/molecules, can be manipulated by altering the material parameters: an otherwise opaque medium can be rendered transparent at any given frequency, by adequately adjusting the relative densities of the atoms/molecules composing it.”As the scientists explain, light scattering is very well understood when dealing with individual quantum emitters; that is, single atoms or molecules. But the physics becomes much more complex when dealing with two or more interacting emitters. In this case, the electromagnetic field experienced by an emitter depends not only on the light beam striking its surface, but also on all of the electromagnetic fields radiated by all of its neighbors, which in turn are affected by the emitter in question. Each quantum emitter can have a dipole, meaning a positive side and a negative side, due to an uneven distribution of electrons within the emitter. In a dense “vapor” of many quantum emitters, strong dipole-dipole couplings can then occur. The collective effects usually result in an enhancement of the light-matter interaction, although a very complicated one. Here, the researchers have theoretically shown that strong dipole-dipole interactions in a dense vapor of quantum emitters can be used to manipulate the spectral properties of the light scattered by the emitters. In particular, the medium may become transparent at a particular frequency that can be controlled to a certain extent. The scientists explain that, on the most basic level, DIET results from destructive interference between the electromagnetic waves emitted by the quantum emitters. DIET is also closely related to another phenomenon, called electromagnetically-induced transparency (EIT). EIT is also based on destructive interference, but it is induced by a laser instead of dipole-dipole interactions.The scientists expect that DIET could have many of the same applications as EIT, which include the generation of slow light or stopped light by interactions with the medium. Slow light has a variety of optical applications, including information transmission, switches, and high-resolution spectrometers. Also, in the field of attosecond physics, DIET could potentially be used to generate high harmonics in dense atomic or molecular gases.The researchers anticipate that DIET can be experimentally implemented in a few different ways, including in atomic vapor confined in a cell as well as in ultracold dense atomic clouds. However, both systems still face challenges for demonstrating DIET, which must be addressed in the future.”Currently our goal is to hunt for the observation of DIET in multilevel atomic or molecular systems,” Charron said. “Each emitter will behave as a series of oscillating dipoles, and this is expected to yield a series of transparency windows, thus opening the way for more elaborate and flexible manipulation strategies. We will publish new results on this topic in Arxiv in the next few weeks. Moreover, DIET offers yet another way to slow the light due to strong anomalous dispersion. We thus plan to develop the study of slow light with DIET in the near future, with potential applications for information processing.”center_img (Phys.org) —All objects’ colors are determined by the way that light scatters off of them. By manipulating the light scattering, scientists can control the wavelengths at which light is transmitted and reflected by objects, changing their appearance.

The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation, so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dianna Bardo, M.D., director of body MR and co-director of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s. CT scans of Egyptian mummies from the Horus study, both showing calcified plaques in the carotid arteries.New research published in the June issue of Global Heart, the journal of the World Heart Federation, shows that there are no significant differences in the incidence or severity of atherosclerotic disease (narrowing of the arteries with fatty deposits) between ancient and modern people, proving that atherosclerosis is not just a disease of modern times. The journal included three articles [1,2,3] on the finding of the Horus study, which used computed tomography (CT) scans from ancient mummies to compare arterial calcification caused by Horus atherosclerosis.While the Horus study has previously reported atherosclerotic vascular calcifications on CT scans in ancient Egyptians, the Horus team’s new study compared patterns and demographic characteristics of this disease among Egyptians from both ancient and modern eras.[1] The authors compared the presence and extent of vascular calcifications from whole-body CT scans performed on 178 modern Egyptians from Cairo undergoing positron emission tomography (PET)/CT for cancer staging to CT scans of 76 Egyptian mummies (3100 BC to 364 AD). Patients undergoing cancer staging were selected for the study because these scans had already been completed for this group of patients as part of their cancer care. The mean age of the modern Egyptian group was 52 years (range 14 to 84) vs. estimated age at death of ancient Egyptian mummies at 36 years (range 4 to 60). Vascular calcification (evidence of atherosclerosis) was detected in 108 of 178 (61 percent) modern patients vs. 26 of 76 (38 percent) mummies, with vascular calcifications on CT strongly correlated to age in both groups. In addition, the severity of disease by number of involved arterial beds also correlated to age, and there was a very similar pattern between the two groups.However, the authors pointed out that there is more likely to be atherosclerosis in modern patients due to the higher age range. Once all modern patients over 60 were excluded (with 60 years being the oldest age of death in the mummies) there was no significant difference in incidence or severity of atherosclerotic disease between the two groups. “Atherosclerosis has always been thought of as a disease of modern civilization that is linked to risk factors such as a diet rich in fat, smoking, lack of exercise, high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity,” said Adel Allam, M.D., Al-Azhar University, Cairo, Egypt. “Although elite ancient Egyptians may have consumed a diet rich in fat, we do not have definite information if diabetes and high blood pressure were present at that time. However multiple other risk factors that are related to the disease were not present during ancient times, for example smoking and lack of exercise. Thus we definitely expected to see more atherosclerotic disease in modern Egyptians compared to ancient Egyptians.” The authors concluded that the elucidation of risk factors underlying the development and progression of atherosclerosis helps identify effective strategies for the prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis. “Our knowledge on risk factor patterns among ancient Egyptians, including associated conditions such as diabetes, abnormal blood fat levels and high blood pressure, is incomplete,” the authors wrote, and explained further studies are needed comparing varying environmental and genetic predispositions to the development of atherosclerosis between ancient and modern Egyptians.Other Mummies StudiedTwo other studies published in Global Heart[2,3] explained atherosclerosis was found in other cultures’ mummies as well, and offered explanation to the possible causes.  While the mummified ancient Egyptians may have been the wealthy of their day, the Horus study also included mummies from four non-Egyptian cultures. In these cases, instead of the Egyptian method using an extensive mummification process, the dead were left to dry out on their own, either in a desert or a fiercely cold environment. Their abdominal organs were left inside the body and expensive oils, resins and drying measures were not employed. These mummies were common men and women of their time.  The study included 51 Peruvians from 600 to 2,000 years ago, and five Native Americans of Utah and Colorado from about 1,600 years ago. The small group of Mongolians studied from 500 years ago lived a primitive nomadic lifestyle in the Gobi Desert. The five Aleutian Islanders of 150 years ago obtained their food from the Bering Sea and its shoreline, hunting and gathering for food without benefit of agriculture or domestic animals. Yet the Horus team found that these people of ancient lifestyles were also plagued by atherosclerosis. “The CT scans show a surprising similarity in the amount and distribution of atherosclerotic calcifications between ancient Egyptians and men and women living in the U.S. today,” said James Sutherland, M.D., co-author and radiologist at Saddleback and Orange Coast Memorial in California. “This should lead to re-evaluation of the root causes of atherosclerosis and could lead to entirely new avenues of prevention and early treatment.” None of these cultures suffered from significant obesity, lack of physical activity, cigarette smoking or other well-known modern risk factors that can cause narrowing of the arteries and thus raise the risk of heart attack, stroke and other cardiovascular problems. However, the authors suggest that a non-traditional cause or causes of atherosclerosis could explain the burden of atherosclerosis in ancient people.  “These ancient people were unaware of the germs lurking in the unhygienic environments in which they lived — animals and people living side by side, inadequate sewage, contaminated water,” said Gregory S. Thomas, M.D., MPH, medical director, MemorialCare Heart and Vascular Institute at Long Beach Memorial, Long Beach, Calif., and co-principal investigator of the Horus study. “They did not know that the germs amongst which they lived caused infection after infection. In addition to frequent bacterial and viral infections, the ancients likely suffered from lifelong parasitic infestations. Modern medicine, knowledge and antibiotics had not yet arrived.” Role of Inflammation “Chronic infections and poor hygiene remained pervasive problems in ancient civilizations. It is certainly possible that the subsequent inflammation that accompanies these conditions could play a role in the development of atherosclerosis,” said David Michalik, D.O., co-author and infectious disease specialist at Miller Children’s and Women’s Hospital Long Beach. A strong and prolonged inflammatory effort by the body would have been necessary to fight off the infections that plagued ancient humans. However, this intense inflammatory response may have accelerated the inflammation that occurs when cholesterol, an unwelcome guest, gets into the wall of the artery. Inflammation is an integral part of the atherosclerotic process. Cholesterol is not supposed to be in the wall, thus the body fights it. The process is counterproductive, however, attracting more unwelcome cells in the wall of the artery resulting in a further build up of an atherosclerotic plaque.As evidence, the authors cite a 1974 investigation into the mummy Nakht, a teenage boy who worked as a weaver circa 1200 BC in Thebes (modern day Luxor, Egypt). The extensive investigation found that Nakht was infected with four parasites, suffering from schistosomiasis, trichinosis, malaria and tapeworm infestation. The authors commented, “If Nakht is representative of those living along the ancient Nile, these populations must have endured enormous, lifelong inflammatory burdens.” Other mummies were found to be harboring tuberculosis infections. There is precedence of inflammation accelerating atherosclerosis in the modern day. People with conditions of ongoing inflammation, those with rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection experience premature and aggressive atherosclerosis leading to early heart disease and death. The investigators suggest the inflammatory process, necessary to fight off infection in ancient times in particular, could backfire by promoting atherosclerosis in the absence of modern risk factors.Tobacco was not available to any of these ancient cultures, but could the equivalent of smoking represent another cause for this unexpected atherosclerosis? Modern appliances were unavailable, and cooking was performed over a fire. The same fire could be used to ward off insects and for light and warmth.  “We noticed a trend toward more women than men developing atherosclerosis in ancient times,” Thomas said. “The traditional role of women in these times, cooking over a fire for much of the day, could have represented the scourge of smoking of the time. Inhalation of smoke day-in and day-out could have initiated and propelled the atherosclerotic process.” Thomas and Narula commented that the bulk of modern risk factors were discovered several generations ago, before genetic testing and modern biomarker analysis. “Each year we learn more and more about the impact of the human genome and molecules in our blood, and so to believe we have already uncovered all the causes, or risk factors, of atherosclerosis may be wishful thinking,” said Thoms. “Using the past to predict the future, as these ancient people unexpectedly had atherosclerosis, we need to continue to search for other potential fundamental causes of atherosclerosis. The discovery of new causes could dramatically reshape the frequency and impact of atherosclerosis today.”  Egyptian mummy CT showing calcification of the aorta, branch vessels and aoritic biforcation.

Colombias legendary police chief heads to Mexico

first_img New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths Naranjo, 55, has played a central role in the capture or death of nearly every top Colombian drug trafficker, beginning with Pablo Escobar. The dismantling of the Medellin and Cali cocaine cartels and the splintering of successor trafficking organizations into ever-smaller groups was, as much as anyone’s, Naranjo’s doing.On Thursday, Mexican presidential front-runner Enrique Pena Nieto said Naranjo has agreed to serve as his adviser on fighting drug trafficking if Pena Nieto wins the July 1 election.The candidate has pledged to reduce violent crime affecting ordinary people in Mexico’s drug war, a contrast to President Felipe Calderon’s strategy of going after drug kingpins. Analysts have said Pena Nieto’s strategy could mean that drug dealers who conduct their businesses discreetly will be left alone.But Naranjo, standing with Pena Nieto at a news conference, said all cartels should be treated equally because “there can’t be inequalities in the treatment of criminals.”Naranjo’s 36-year career in Colombia, the last five as commander of 170,000 cops, coincides with his country’s tortured journey from the verge of a near-failed state to what U.S. officials, Naranjo’s chief patrons, tout as a model for the region’s deadliest drug-war battlegrounds. For a man who navigated the depths of the underworld for most of his career, whether battling rebels or ferreting out drug traffickers, his approval ratings in Colombia have been as high as any other public figure save Alvaro Uribe, Colombia’s pugilistic law-and-order president in 2002-1010.In a leaked 2009 Wikileaks cable, former U.S. ambassador William Brownfield said Naranjo was “perhaps the smartest, best informed member” of Colombia’s government.A leading Colombian rights activist, Gustavo Gallon, said Naranjo “has been upstanding, and has favored rights of civilians over the military.”And this from Myles Frechette, the U.S. ambassador in 1994-97: “It was Naranjo’s analysis and many of the strategies he put together that slowly and eventually got Colombia to where it is today.”Yet Naranjo acknowledges making dark alliances when it was a question of national survival.Colombians tend to agree that they were worth it.___With his urbane manner and generous six-foot frame, Naranjo is unusually patrician for a cop.Though the son of a former Colombian police chief, Naranjo’s teen years were more bohemian than boy scout. He wore his hair long and read Kafka, Camus and papal encyclicals. He played volleyball competitively. He wobbled between studying sociology and journalism before getting hooked on police work after tagging along with some detectives on a kidnapping case. (Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) At the time, the kingpin’s family had returned to Bogota after Germany rejected its asylum request. Fearful that Escobar’s underworld foes would try to assassinate members of the family, they agreed to be put up in a residence hotel suite.Naranjo had bugged the suite beforehand. Then he positioned himself one floor up, where, with the help of U.S. agents, he directed one of the earliest successful cellphone triangulations.The Bloque de Busqueda’s operations chief, now retired Gen. Leonardo Gallego, said Naranjo succeeded in forcing Escobar “into errors that made him break his own strict security rules.”Obsessed over his family’s safety, Escobar lingered too long on the phone with his son.His location pinpointed, his fate was sealed. He was gunned down on a rooftop in Medellin while trying to make his escape.___People looking to draw lessons for today’s Mexican drug warriors from Colombia’s defeat of the Medellin cartel should not overlook the ethical compromises and dark alliances made in that epic struggle, says Vanda Felbab-Brown, a drug war analyst at the Brookings Institution in Washington.To weaken and isolate Escobar, Colombia’s government and police allied themselves with the Cali cartel and estranged former Escobar henchmen, including men who would go on to lead the far-right militias known as paramilitaries. The government’s criminal allies killed several hundred of Escobar’s mid-level operatives and thus paralyzed the group, Felbab-Brown said.Naranjo does not deny that bloody marriage of convenience.It’s easy to be critical in hindsight, he says, “but when two or three car bombs are going off in Bogota, in Medellin or in Cali and there are 120 dead every week from this war, the truth is that the state and society said, `Do whatever you need to do to stop this.’”That included leaning on Danilo Gonzalez, one of Naranjo’s police academy classmates who had gone rogue.Gonzalez always had the best intelligence on Escobar, Naranjo argued, because he got it from the Cali cartel, the next big target in the U.S.-sponsored drug war.Naranjo says that in 1995, he persuaded the incoming police director, Gen. Rosso Jose Serrano, not to forcibly retire Gonzalez because the latter provided “very useful information.”Serrano eventually forced Gonzalez out when it became clear he was deep into drug trafficking with other rogue policemen.In 2004, Gonzalez was killed in a gangland-style shooting.Naranjo attended the wake.___During Serrano’s 1995-2000 tenure, Naranjo gravitated to the “yuppies” _ educated cops who favored well-cut suits and worked shoulder-to-shoulder with the DEA, CIA and Scotland Yard. The two men purged about 10,000 police officers. During Naranjo’s time as director, nearly 2,900 were forcibly retired. Top Stories Associated PressBOGOTA, Colombia (AP) – A signature trophy that Gen. Oscar Naranjo has carefully displayed in glass at Police Intelligence headquarters is odd by any measure: the neatly folded uniform of a rebel commander slain in 2008, clearly showing the holes from the shrapnel that killed him.The four-star general, who retired as Colombia’s police director this week, is proud of that and the others that line a hallway at the Police Intelligence Directorate in northern Bogota. They are testament to an intelligence empire he built that is unrivaled in Latin America. Comments   Share   Sponsored Stories center_img Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements Naranjo graduated first in his class at the police academy and, when his father retired in 1983, went into intelligence work.That’s when his education began to get especially dangerous.Medellin cartel kingpin Pablo Escobar would soon emerge as an existential threat to the state. In Escobar’s fight against the extradition of drug traffickers to the United States, he waged all-out war, including targeted assassinations and indiscriminate bombings of civilians.In 1989, after Naranjo escorted out of the country his first “extraditable,” an Escobar money-launderer, the long reach of drug cartels touched him personally.“When I returned to Bogota the next day,” he recalled, “I found my wife had to move because a funeral wreath was delivered to the small apartment where we lived that said: `Maj. Naranjo, Rest in Peace.’”The Medellin cartel put a $5,000 bounty on his head. Escobar offered smaller bounties for rank-and-file policemen. About 500 were killed in Medellin alone in the worst year.In 1991, Escobar surrendered and entered a custom-built prison he’d helped design. A few months later, he was a fugitive again.Naranjo, who had moved to Buenos Aires, was brought back to Colombia and named intelligence chief of the “Bloque de Busqueda,” a special force formed to hunt down the arch criminal. He gave weekly briefings to a group led by the defense minister that included the top CIA and DEA officers in Colombia. And he designed the clandestine operation that led to Escobar’s killing in December 1993. Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates How men can have a healthy 2019 Quick workouts for men Get a lawn your neighbor will be jealous of No one questions Naranjo’s effectiveness against drug traffickers and leftist rebels, but analysts say Colombia’s police under Naranjo have achieved far less on other fronts.Kidnapping and murder are down dramatically, but criminal bands continue to thrive in the provinces, running drugs, extorting, “taxing” illegal gold mining. Colombia also remains the world’s most deadly nation for trade union organizers.“The strategy of going after high-value targets has its limits,” said Maria Victoria Llorente, director of the Bogota think tank Fundacion Ideas para La Paz. “You capture the capos, but they have a great capacity for regeneration.”That’s one reason drug decriminalization has a growing number of proponents in Latin America.Naranjo is not among them, and his personal experience can’t help but influence his thinking.“Drug trafficking is good at transforming values into anti-values,” he says, “and ends up enslaving societies.”___Frank Bajak on Twitter: http://twitter.com/fbajaklast_img

63rd Annual TAAI Convention to be held from October 1416 at Abu

first_imgTAAI will promote ‘Inbound into India’ as an important subject at the Convention to encourage more visitors to India63rd Annual Convention & Exhibition of Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI), popularly known as the Indian Travel Congress will be held from October 14-16, 2016 at Abu Dhabi. The venue and dates for the convention were finalised at the recently held Managing Committee meeting in Mumbai.Emirates Palace, the seven star hotel with a strikingly magnificent and unmatched edifice is shortlisted to be an important venue for the Convention.Talking about the host destination, Sunil Kumar, President, TAAI, said that Abu Dhabi has grown into a masterpiece among the cities of the world. He added that when a survey was done on 100 outbound passengers from India who visits Dubai, it revealed that only about five percent visits Abu Dhabi, which is quite shocking. One prime reason is the inadequate awareness on the growing strengths of Abu Dhabi, particularly in the areas of Tourism and MICE.TAAI is associating with Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi) who have assured of their support to TAAI to hold this event in Abu Dhabi.Speaking about the Convention, Kumar reflected that the Convention would be rich in its content as well as in offering experiential take-home to the delegates. He said that the content would focus on the importance of a fast changing ‘today’ and the urgent need for members to rise beyond the routine.The Convention will also focus on an exhibition that will offer exhibitors and vendors from the region, the valuable opportunity to connect with the fast growing Indian outbound industry and to also promote India. TAAI will promote ‘Inbound into India’ as an important subject at the Convention to encourage the region to connect well with India.Evenings will be classy– pre and post tours will be plenty and above all the attendees will be offered abundant luxury of a very high order. TAAI will be soon rolling out the registration opportunities.last_img read more

Debby Boone, best known for her 1977 song “You Light Up My Life,” is celebrating its 40 years with a reissued CD. Boone won a Grammy for best new artist in 1978. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes, File) A Grammy curse? Milli Vanilli’s Fab Morvan, others reflect by Mesfin Fekadu, The Associated Press Posted Jan 22, 2018 10:13 am PDT Last Updated Jan 22, 2018 at 2:00 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img NEW YORK, N.Y. – Winning the best new artist Grammy is a goal for most breakthrough performers, but for some of its recipients, it can create pressure to match previous success or surpass it.That’s why some feel that winning the award is a slight curse.The Recording Academy has been known for picking the wrong best new artist winner over the years. Some of the world’s greatest musicians have lost the award, including Elton John, Elvis Costello and the Dixie Chicks. Taylor Swift lost, too, though it was understandably to Amy Winehouse. But other choices will surprise you — Macklemore & Ryan Lewis not only beat out Kendrick Lamar, but they won over Ed Sheeran.But sometimes the Grammys gets it right: The Beatles, Bette Midler, Mariah Carey, John Legend and Adele are some of the superstars who have picked up the honour, and have followed up their wins with impressive work.We take a look at four acts who won best new artist and what life was like afterward.___MILLI VANILLIFab Morvan of Milli Vanilli said even before the Grammys asked the duo to return its best new artist award, the group planned to give it back.“We didn’t sing on the record. That is 100 per cent, so we wanted to give it back. It was the right thing to do,” he said in a recent interview with The Associated Press. “And to this day it got twisted (and people thought) the Grammys wanted it back, when in fact we were the first to say, ‘We want to give it back.’”Milli Vanilli, who won the honour at the 1990 Grammys, had to famously return the award after the public learned Morvan and Rob Pilatus didn’t sing on the duo’s 1989 U.S. debut, “Girl You Know It’s True.”Morvan said despite that, it was still an honour to be nominated and that he and Pilatus, who died in 1998, still put in a lot of work.“People might say, ‘Well, you know, they didn’t sing on the record.’ But look at the rest. We were the heart and soul of Milli Vanilli. We did those 107 cities (on tour) … in eight months,” he said. “We worked hard. We worked our butts off. We entertained people.”Milli Vanilli beat out acts like Indigo Girls, Soul II Soul, Neneh Cherry and Tone Loc for the honour. In some ways, Morvan feels winning the Grammy actually hurt the group.“We were a target, an easy target at that. So, you know, winning the award definitely made us a major target. It pissed people off,” he said.___JODY WATLEYWinning best new artist for Jody Watley was vindication in its finest form.“I remember reading at the time when I quit Shalamar in 1983, ‘Jody Watley’s future will probably be the most in doubt,’” she recalled with a laugh. “Pretty much everyone made sure that I knew that they thought I would fail. Everyone said that it would be the biggest mistake of my life, that I would live to regret it. And so …getting nominated and winning it is one of the greatest moments of my life.”Watley had previously been nominated for a Grammy with Shalamar, so being a nominee for best new artist surprised some people. She won the honour at the 1988 show over Swing Out Sister, Cutting Crew, Terence Trent D’Arby and Breakfast Club.“When people ask the question, it’s like, ‘Well, get over it. I was eligible and I was the best new artist.’ And I shut a lot of people up,” she said, laughing again.Watley’s 1987 debut launched five hits, including the Top 10 pop hits, “Looking for a New Love,” ”Don’t You Want Me” and “Some Kind of Lover.” She said winning didn’t create pressure for her second album, which launched three more Top 10 pop smashes.Watley said she knows that the conversation around winning best new artist “sometimes … has a negative connotation,” but she wants to remind people that she’s “a great success story.”The 58-year-old is currently recording music in the group SLR — Sexy Real Love — and said she could return to the Grammys.“I was teasing the guys and I was saying, ‘Maybe we’ll make history and we’ll end up nominated for best new artist,” she said. “Because I think we would be eligible.”___ARRESTED DEVELOPMENTArrested Development marked history when they won best new artist in 1993, becoming the first rap act to do so.It opened doors for hip-hop performers like Lauryn Hill, Chance the Rapper and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis to win the same honour.“People who had never explored (hip-hop) and didn’t totally get it really got what we were bringing out,” said Speech, the lead vocalist and co-founder of the progressive rap group. “It made me proud that we were sort of like introducing hip-hop to a large audience.”Arrested Development’s 1992 debut, “3 Years, 5 Months and 2 Days in the Life Of…,” was a departure from the gangster rap that had dominated radio at the time. The album had three Top 10 pop hits, including “Mr. Wendal,” ”People Everyday” and “Tennessee,” which won the group another Grammy.But following their debut album wasn’t an easy task, Speech said.“For our second album, the label was more in a business model thinking about quarters and when can they make the biggest impact from a first to fourth quarter standpoint, and things that have less to do with the heart (of making music),” Speech said. “So if I had a chance to do it over again, I just would have just taken more time on the second album, regardless of how it sells. It’s not even because it didn’t sell as well as the first, but just because that’s what the art deserves.”“If you take four or five years or if you take a few months, whatever it is for you, take that time and really pour it in just like you likely did on your first project or on the project that got you best new artist,” he added.___DEBBY BOONEBeing named best new artist in 1978 was an “out of body experience” for Debby Boone, who had a huge hit with the song, “You Light Up My Life.”But following up the win had some challenges.“It did create pressure. And I think it added to the discouragement when that was not what happened, you know, if people believed in me and now I’m letting them down, a little bit of that,” she said.Though Boone didn’t match the achievements of her debut album and single, she still released music that charted successfully and won more Grammy Awards.But she admits she has “mixed feelings about” how things took off after her best new artist win.“I thought everybody knew more than me. So even when I didn’t particularly like the choices that were being made on my behalf, I would tell myself, ‘These are the experts. These guys know. I don’t like this song, but I’m going to give it my best shot.’ And that’s because my success happened suddenly,” she said. “When ‘You Light Up My Life’ took off, I didn’t know which direction I wanted to go. I knew what I liked, but I didn’t trust that what I liked would be liked by other people.”“And now I’m old enough to realize, first of all, I don’t want to spend my life doing things that I don’t believe in, or love, or feel passionate about,” the 61-year-old added. “I think the healthiest attitude at this stage of my life, and even 20 years ago, is to say, ‘It is what happened.’”Boone is a Grammy voter and says when looking at the best new artist nominees, she’s voting “for who I think has a talent that is most promising to continue giving us wonderful music.”“And though I haven’t had a string of hit records, basically on the strength of that hit record, I have, for 40 years, had a very full life of performing and recording,” she said. “And I’m nothing but grateful.”___The 60th annual Grammy Awards will air live from Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sunday. Nominees for best new artist are R&B singers SZA and Khalid, pop singers Alessia Cara and Julia Michaels, and rapper Lil Uzi Vert.___Online: http://www.grammy.com___For full coverage of awards season, visit: https://apnews.com/tag/AwardsSeasonlast_img read more
