1000s attended ‘Uncomfortable Oxford’ history events in 2019

first_img2020 will see a continuation of the PUBlic Lecture Series, the creation of ‘The Uncomfortable Oxford Podcast’, and collaboration with ‘The Whip’, a new play by the Royal Shakespeare Company. Two DPhil students in the Department of History, Olivia Durand and Paula Larsson, founded the project in 2018. It aims to “‘raise awareness and create discourse’ about the ’uncomfortable’ legacies of inequality and imperialism in the city and the university’”. The 2019 newsletter describes how this involves colonisation and imperialism, race and racism, gender and women’s history, LGBTQ+ history, slavery, violence, and wealth and financial ethics. ‘Uncomfortable Oxford’, a project encouraging awareness of Oxford’s ‘legacies of inequality and imperialism’, has experienced rapid growth since its creation in 2018. Almost 3000 people attended events over the past year, according to their 2019 Impact Report. These include tours, lectures, and workshops. ‘Uncomfortable Oxford’ started a series of talks about the British Empire, the PUBlic lectures. They also attended the Being Human festival, co-hosting a ‘Death Café’ style-event to encourage reflection on how “stories of historical deaths are used socially and politically”, and ran an Activism Café at the East Oxford Community Centre. The Impact Record also records how awareness has increased throughcollaborations, events, and publications. Co-directors Olivia and Paulapublished ‘The Maps We Inhabit: Storytelling, Memory and Uncomfortable Oxford’in online journal Living Maps Review and were interviewed on the ‘NakedHumanities’ and ‘For Art’s Sake’ podcasts. These figures are reflected in the large quantity of positivefeedback, with the walking tours averaging 5 stars on TripAdvisor. Visitorscommend the knowledge of guides, the global outlook, and the barriers broken downto spark discussion. The organisation has run over 159 walking tours, reaching people from over 31 different countries. These tours are led by students and “encourage analysis and discussion about uncomfortable subjects within the city”. The most popular event has been ‘The Original Uncomfortable Tour’, with 1260 people attending in 2019. Further walking tours include the ‘Uncomfortable Literature Tour’, the ‘Oxford and Empire Tour’, and the ‘Follow the Money Tour’. last_img read more

Bill To Raise Smoking Age Undergoes Small Changes In House

first_imgFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare Bill To Raise Smoking Age Undergoes Small Changes In House By Victoria Ratliffcenter_img TheStatehousefile.comINDIANAPOLIS—A bill to raise the smoking and vaping age from 18 to 21 underwent minor changes on the floor of the Indiana House Thursday to add penalties for those who are caught with tobacco products.House Bill 1006 follows the federal government’s Dec. 20 law which raises the legal smoking and vaping age to 21. The author, Rep. Cindy Kirchhofer, R- Beech Grove, said her bill was filed to establishes penalties so the violations of the new anti-smoking law can be prosecuted.Kirchhofer’s original version of the bill had no penalties for users, which had been in state law when smoking under age 18 was illegal. Her amendment, which passed in a unanimous voice vote, restored those penalties. Vendors also face penalties for selling to minors.An amendment by Rep. J.D. Prescott, R-Union City, also passed in a unanimous voice vote to make it a Class B infraction for retailers who are caught selling tobacco or nicotine-containing Vitamin E acetate. The maximum fine is $1,000.The Centers for Disease Control found that when Vitamin E acetate is inhaled it could interfere with normal lung functions and could lead to EVALI, which stands for E-cigarette, or vaping product use-associated lung injury and a newly-identified disease linked to vaping.Not all agreed that the small fine was enough. Rep. Terri Austin, D-Anderson, filed an amendment to make the penalty for retailers who are caught selling tobacco or nicotine-containing vitamin E acetate a Class A infraction, which has a penalty of up to $10,000.Rep. Terri Austin, D-Anderson, lost an effort to raise the penalty for adding Vitamin E to vaping products. Photo by Lacey Watt, TheStateHouseFile.com.Austin argued that vitamin E acetate isn’t found in legal cigarettes or e-cigarette liquids but in “underground” or off-market products.“If you’re someone engaged in the underground market, $1,000 is probably not much to you,” she said. “I think we need to hit people where it hurts. We have got to send a strong message, and the truth is we have to have a strong penalty.”Kirchhofer said the discussion should have taken place in the health committee to learn about the consequences of changing the infractions.The amendment failed 40-57.The bill now goes to House for a final vote.FOOTNOTE:  Victoria Ratliff is a reporter for TheStatehouseFile.com, a news website powered by Franklin College journalism students.last_img read more

Bread market to grow 10.9% despite overall decline

first_imgThe UK retail market for bread and bakery products grew by 3.4% in 2013 despite continued decline in bread consumption and volume sales.Key Note forecasters, which produced this report, anticipate a growth of 10.9% between now and 2018 based on the strength of diversification in the market. Changing consumer interests mean a wealth of avenues for growth in the sector as trends progress. Growth is also facilitated by the ongoing effects of rising inflation on retail prices and the higher expense of speciality breads.The report also revealed that white bread is still a significant contributor to overall sales as the nation’s favourite bread. Its popularity has been compounded by the success of combination loaves such as Hovis’ Best of Both loaf, which are included in the sector.However, sales of brown and wholemeal loaves are less substantial though buoyed up slightly as people favour ‘healthier’ options. Both traditional bread sectors are under threat from the rising speciality breads market in the UK including a variety such as ciabatta, naan and rye. The mass availability of different types has encouraged the diversification of consumer interests as the popularity of rolls, bagels, doughnuts and crumpets is also on the up.Gluten-free boost Demand for gluten-free breads and homemade sandwiches also contributed to 2013’s growth. The popularity of the latter has been driven by new product developments such as combination rolls, wraps and flatbreads as well as the already-popular bagels category.Despite the advent of speciality breads and other bakery products, total bread consumption in the UK continues on a long-term downward trend. Volume sales of traditional loaves are declining at a faster rate than the alternative options are increasing.“Bread is gradually becoming a less integral component of many Britons’ everyday diets,” stated the report. “New product developments in competing wheat-based markets, such as breakfast cereals and biscuits, as well as the popularity of low-carbohydrate diets are contributing to this trend. Consumers are instead choosing to consume speciality breads less regularly, with many consumers opting to do so at dinner, when such products can be used to make the meal more special.”last_img read more

Pitbull & Self-Help Guru Tony Robbins Are Going On Tour In 2019

first_imgIn a Billboard exclusive, yesterday, the global pop icon Pitbull announced that he’ll be embarking on a motivational tour in 2019. During his question-and-answer session at the Billboard Latin Music Conference in Las Vegas on Wednesday, he also shared the news that the iconic self-help guru Tony Robbins will be joining him for this new endeavor.Pitbull’s mother was a big fan of Robbins, so growing up, the life coach was a household name. As Pitbull became a famed recording artist, he eventually met Robbins and the two became friends. The two have a public history dating back to at least 2016, when Robbins spoke during the ceremony honoring the artist he received the 2,584th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.Robbins has clearly affected Pitbull’s outlook on the music industry, with the rapper offering thoughts on how motivation plays a role in the release of his new music. As noted in the Billboard article, Pitbull noted that his new single, “The Roof Is On Fire”, will not be released on Spotify, hoping that this back-to-basics, pre-Internet approach will motivate fans to seek out and find the track independently. “I even told [my] team not to register it,” he added, solidifying his independent approach to music releases.During his chat, Pitbull noted that “I’m just being a revolutionary to wake everybody else.” Outside of the music industry, the Miami-born rapper opened a public Florida charter school in 2013 called the Sports Leadership And Management Academy (SLAM), that focuses on drawing in students who love sports but find school boring.As for Pitbull’s motivational tour with Tony Robbins, there are still relatively few details outside the fact that they’re planning to embark on the new joint project in 2019.[H/T Billboard]last_img read more

Jon Batiste Channels Prince For Hilarious Musical “Recap” Of ‘Game Of Thrones’ On ‘Colbert’ [Watch]

first_imgJon Batiste, the leader of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert house band Stay Human, has never seen a single episode of Game of Thrones. However, with all the buzz surrounding the HBO juggernaut’s series finale on Sunday, Batiste felt it was his duty to help viewers refresh their memories about all that’s happened on the show throughout the years.Related: Game Of Thrones Live Concert Experience Announces 2019 Fall Tour Dates“There’s a lot to keep track of in this series…You gotta keep it all in your head before this Sunday’s show” Colbert mused while introducing the song. “That’s why our very own Jon Batiste over there put together a song to catch you up on everything that’s happened so far.”“You, I understand, are a big fan?” Colbert asked Batiste. “No,” Jon responded with a mischievous smile. “Never seen a single episode.”“Well then how did you write a song recapping the entire series?” asked Colbert. “Well, I’ve seen plenty of memes online,” Batiste responded, “So, I just put it together like that, you know?… But I think I nailed it.”Nail it, he did. For his Game of Thrones recap, Batiste channeled Purple Rain-era Prince (in both sound and style) for a comical retelling of the Medieval fantasy saga.The results are just as irreverent and satisfying as you’d expect. Of course, Jon Batiste gets all the details wrong—yes, those are Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Pete’s Dragon clips thrown in there—but he does it with charismatic flair and spot-on 80s nostalgia that might help you forget how annoyed you are with how the final season has played out.Take a few minutes and watch Jon Batiste (as Prince) joyously butcher the plot of Game of Thrones with the catchiest song you’ll hear today.Jon Batiste’s ‘Game Of Thrones’ Song[Video: The Late Show with Stephen Colbert]You can tune in to the series finale of Game of Thrones this Sunday night at 9 p.m. Eastern on HBO.last_img read more
