3 October 2008The General Assembly today wrapped up a special high-level meeting with Member States renewing the pledge made five years ago to help the world’s 31 landlocked developing countries (LLDCs) overcome the problems caused by their lack of territorial access to the sea and their remoteness and isolation from world markets. In a declaration adopted at the end of the two-day meeting, participants acknowledged that landlocked and transit countries have registered some progress in carrying out the actions agreed in the 2003 Almaty Programme of Action, which set out specific measures to compensate LLDCs for their geographical handicaps with improved market access and trade facilitation. They also expressed concern that the share of global trade of these countries has remained “small.” According to United Nations figures, although LLDCs represent about 15 per cent of States, their share of world exports has remained well below 1 per cent. The declaration also calls for a series of future actions by LLDCs, donors, development partners and institutions to accelerate the implementation of the Almaty Programme, including promoting inter-railway cooperation, facilitating road transit and making full use of available technology to enhance trade and transport. Donors and multilateral institutions are called on to provide landlocked and transit developing countries with the required technical and financial assistance to help them in their efforts to overcome their handicaps. Participants also welcomed the proposal to set up a global think tank in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, to assist these countries in their efforts to implement the Programme, as well as achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the targets agreed to by world leaders in 2000 to slash poverty, hunger, preventable illness and a host of other socio-economic ills. “Over the past two days we have been assessing the multi-faceted efforts to ensure that landlocked developing countries have efficient transit transport systems to access international markets,” General Assembly President Miguel D’Escoto said as he closed the event. Mr. D’Escoto pledged that the Assembly “will use all its authority to ensure that the commitments of donor countries to provide funding and needed technology transfers are honoured.” The work outlined in the declaration is “ambitious,” he added. “But inspired by our sense of solidarity with the peoples of these landlocked countries and their neighbours, the way is clear and the possibilities endless.”
A statement issued by a spokesman for Jean Arnault, head of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), said the UN envoy was “shocked and saddened” by the killings. The incident was “also a reminder of how important security is and will continue to be if the aspiration of the Afghans to participate in the electoral process is to materialize,” it added.The victims were travelling in the district of Nuristan, where they were evaluating the feasibility of establishing voter registration sites, in preparation for national elections set for September. They worked for London-based Global Risk Strategies, whose services have been contracted to provide logistic and security assessments to the electoral process in Afghanistan.”The precise circumstances of the attack are not yet known. The United Nations is reassured that the authorities have undertaken to conduct a thorough investigation in order to identify the perpetrators and bring them to justice,” the statement said, adding that Mr. Arnault extended his sympathy to the families and colleagues of the victims.Afghans are enthusiastically supporting the electoral process, the statement said. Since last December, they have registered in large numbers wherever registration sites were available and have urged the electoral authorities to expand voter registration far and wide. Coincidentally, a delegation of influential Nuristanis visited Kabul recently to impress upon the electoral authorities their wish to begin registration there as soon as possible.”The United Nations reaffirms its own commitment to assist the Joint Electoral Management Body and its Electoral Secretariat in making this participation possible,” the statement concluded.
Three years ago, Pim Techamuanvivit, a renowned United States blogger on restaurants, devised the “Menu for Hope” auction programme where foodies around the world can buy $10 tickets to bid on items ranging from complimentary meals at top restaurants to rare cookery books to baskets of unusual gastronomic items.All proceeds from the auction – which is located at http://chezpim.typepad.com – are being given to the WFP.This year’s target of $25,000 has already been exceeded, with the total reaching $30,986.70 as of 4.15 pm New York time today. Menu for Hope, which began on 10 December, is scheduled to keep running through Friday. Last year the project raised $17,000 to help the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF).Ms. Techamuanvivit said one of the key reasons for the success this year has been that so many donors value the work of the WFP.“The opportunity to help the world’s hungry galvanizes this community of people who share a passion for food,” she said. “Here is a chance to make a difference, to share some of the privileges we enjoy – that’s why so many people have so generously and enthusiastically shown their support.”

The report presents 12 strategies promoting expanded immigration, enhanced research and development and revitalization of traditional rural industries. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Andrew Vaughan HALIFAX – Nova Scotia is doomed to endure an extended period of decline unless population and economic trends are reversed and suspicious attitudes about business are changed, a report released Wednesday says.The economic development report, written by a five-member panel led by Acadia University president Ray Ivany, says the province is in such bad shape that it is barely able to support its current standard of living.“Because of a combination of economic and demographic factors, we are teetering on the brink of long-term decline,” Ivany told a news conference at a museum on the Halifax waterfront, where about 250 people gathered.Ivany said Nova Scotia’s population is expected to decline over the next 20 years as young people continue to leave the province to search for work. By 2036, the province expects to have 100,000 fewer working-age people than it did in 2010, the report says.“You cannot have economic success with a population decline,” Ivany said. “There’s no way you can make that up with productivity or efficiency gains.”On the economic front, Nova Scotia has recorded the worst performance of any province, on average, over the past 20 years.Ivany said this weakness can be traced, in part, to the province’s lack of confidence in its business leaders and entrepreneurs.“At best, we have an ambivalence toward entrepreneurs and the private sector,” he said. “We’re much quicker to move to suspicion about their motives than we are to celebrate their success.”Panel member Susanna Fuller, marine co-ordinator with the Ecology Action Centre, was more blunt: “We tend to pooh-pooh success.”As well, Ivany said the culture in Nova Scotia is such that residents typically look to governments first for solutions.Ivany said Nova Scotians should instead look to the success of companies like High Liner Foods Inc. of Lunenburg, which has become one of North America’s largest seafood processors. He also pointed to Scotian Gold in Coldbrook, which invigorated the apple industry with its Honeycrisp variety.The panel had a budget of $800,000. Its report, called “Now or Never: An Urgent Call to Action,” offers 19 goals and 12 long-term strategies, some of which call for lofty targets and drastic changes.On immigration, for example, the panel says the current number of people admitted annually — about 2,300 — should be tripled.Premier Stephen McNeil said his government is poised to make an announcement on immigration in the coming weeks.“It’s exactly the direction we need to go,” he said. “We know we have challenges and the government has a role to play and we’re very encouraged by what we heard. … We have to set bold targets.”The report also says spending on research and development should be doubled to $360 million, and the number of business start-ups should be boosted by 50 per cent. The youth unemployment rate, currently at 19.5 per cent, should drop to the national average at 14 per cent.But the challenges faced by Canada’s second-smallest province could take a decade or more to fix, Ivany said.“This is going to be a slog,” he said, adding that the government should legislate the recommendations.Follow @NovaMac on Twitter

MineARC Systems has launched a new ultra-portable refuge chamber range designed for tight underground confines such as single entry-headings and development areas – the HRM-ELVP (Hard Rock Mine – Extra Low Voltage Portable). Available in both four and six person configurations, the HRM-ELVP range uses a revolutionary Extra-Low-Voltage control system to power the chamber’s internal life support systems; requiring no permanent connection to mains ‘mine’ electrical power (charging required only once every three months). Both the HRM4-ELVP and 6-ELVP can therefore be positioned and repositioned with ease, which is ideal for development areas where continuous drilling and blasting carries on in front of loaders and other manned units. The operational flexibility of the HRM-ELVP range, along with its small robust design, allow it to be positioned where standard refuge chambers can’t – providing personnel working in confined areas with a safe place of refuge should an emergency situation arise.The HRM-ELVP range will supersede the popular HRM-PLP (Powerless Portable) range from MineARC Systems.
The Bolivian state-owned tin mining company, Empresa Minera Huanuni (EMH), is to start trial operations at the Huanuni mine’s Lucianita processing plant in late-October, according to local news sources, the International Tin Association reports.The 3,000 t/d Lucianita plant was built by Chinese contractor Vicstar Union Engineering under a $50 million contract awarded in 2011 with a plan to replace the mine’s existing and ageing Santa Elena plant. However, the new plant has not been used since its completion in late 2014 due to issues related to the supply of water and tailings capacity. These issues are expected to be overcome by a new $16 million tailings dam, which according to the company is now 99.5% complete.The ITA comments: “The Huanuni mine produced 8,415 t of tin-in-concentrate in 2017. Mineral theft, strikes and an explosion at the mine earlier this year have impacted production and we anticipate a lower total for 2018. The successful commissioning of the Lucianita plant could help improve performance in the years ahead as it would represent a doubling of plant processing capacity at the mine.“Tin output is likely to increase by a lesser amount as we believe that less than a quarter of the mine’s production is currently processed through the existing plant. We suspect that ramp-up of the new processing plant to full capacity could also take over a year, delaying any significant improvements in tin output.“The Colquiri tin-zinc mine in Bolivia is also actively seeking bids for construction of a new processing plant and intends to sign a contract with the successful party by end-October. This is its fourth such bidding round since 2016, with earlier attempts unsuccessful.”

32,314 Views ‘I was like ‘I’m not leaving now, there’s 15 minutes to go in the biggest game of Irish history possibly” Jordi Murphy is making good progress on his road to recovery after suffering a horrific injury against New Zealand last November. “Obviously they scored pretty early on and then I scored and CJ [Stander] after and I felt like we were rumbling on and I just wanted to be part of it. It was very disappointing knowing I was going to have to go off.”As Murphy was undergoing an x-ray in the bowels of the stadium, his team-mates produced an incredible, and even now, a scarcely believable performance to bring the world champions to their knees.Enduring incomprehensible physical pain and the mental torture of not being out there, Murphy wasn’t prepared to let the occasion slip by as he defied medical advice to join in the jubilant celebrations at full time.“I didn’t watch the rest of the first half because I went for an x-ray and I was outside the changing room waiting for them to do the half time team talk because I didn’t want to go in while they were doing that,” the 25-year-old recalls.“I just got changed and stuff, my Dad was with me and we watched a bit of the game on the video analysis laptop and the American doctors, who are very good, but they can be a bit fussy, were trying to get us to go to the hospital for more scans but sure we knew the leg was done. I was like ‘I’m not leaving now like, there’s 15 minutes to go in the biggest game of Irish history possibly.’ Murphy embraces with Joe Schmidt after Ireland’s historic win. Source: Dan Sheridan/INPHO“Anyway they kept pestering me, so we sent them off anyway to get the car and then we snuck out the back and got out on the pitch on crutches, we made it though. They couldn’t get to us then, we were on the pitch.’“After the game, I was celebrating as much as I could. There was literally nothing I could do so I just tried to enjoy it. I had family over there that live there and then family who traveled over so I just spent the evening with them, I didn’t move too far from the hotel.”Three months on and Murphy is making encouraging progress. The initial prognosis suggested his season was all but over but he’ll step-up the recovery in the coming weeks with a return to running; it’s very much a step-by-step approach and Murphy appreciates the need to be patient.“It’s still too early to have a date in mind unfortunately but it kind of depends on what the specialist says,” Murphy continued. “Hopefully I’ll start running when I meet him. Once you start running, it’s just about getting a week or two under your belt and getting comfortable and then taking hits.“But it’s the kind of injury, I’ve been talking to other players about it, you just don’t want to be coming back too early. Obviously as a player, I want to be getting back as fast as I can but I’m getting advice from physios and stuff to make sure not to over do it. I’ll see.” http://the42.ie/3244084 WE HAVEN’T REALLY seen or heard from Jordi Murphy since that historic, and indelible, day in Chicago.He’s put the head down, and embarked on a monotonous and extensive rehabilitation process after sustaining ACL damage to his left knee during that win over New Zealand; a memorable occasion in so many ways, but a bittersweet one for the Leinster flanker. Murphy with Robbie Henshaw at Solider Field after Ireland beat the All Blacks. Source: Dan Sheridan/INPHO“I’ve had plenty of time to try and appreciate it,” he says.“It was incredible to be involved on the day. Obviously I would have liked to have played a further part in the game but I guess, the way I can look at it, and the way people have been telling me to look at it is, I was there and played a part in it. It can’t be taken away from me. It’s just unfortunate that I got injured there.“I suppose the silver lining is you’d rather get injured in that game than in a lot of others.”It was a cruel blow for Murphy, who had just worked his way back into Joe Schmidt’s plans after a dip in form following the 2015 World Cup saw him fall into the international wilderness.“I felt like I was going alright at the start of the season but it’s just the way of it, there’s nothing I can do about it, it’s just what happened.”The incident — completely innocuous — occurred 26 minutes into Ireland’s 40-29 win over the All Blacks at Soldier Field, and a little over ten minutes after Murphy had set Joe Schmidt’s men on their way with his second international try.As New Zealand went to restart the game with a quick line out, Murphy looked to change direction and felt his knee ‘go the complete opposite way to where it should be going.’The former Blackrock College man knew straight away he was in serious trouble and the scans revealed the extent of the damage; six to nine months on the sideline.“I just remember it being pretty sore for about a minute or two and then they gave me a green puffer thing and then it wasn’t sore. I don’t know [what was in it] and I don’t know if I’m allowed say either,” he joked. Murphy lies in agony. Source: Dan Sheridan/INPHO“[Conor] Murray box kicked and it had just bounced in play and kind of dribbled out and they went for a quick throw and I kind of went to chase it down because I didn’t hear the ref’s whistle and the next thing I just felt pain.“I knew straight away it wasn’t great and then I suppose after a few seconds…it was obviously very sore but I was more upset about the fact that I wasn’t going to be able to play the rest of the game considering I felt there had been that kind of momentum shift.

At the moment, I haven’t had any setbacks so I want to keep it that way. Obviously six to nine months is not what you want to hear but you still try and be optimistic about it. I got a lot of advice from other players, unfortunately it’s happened to people before. Murphy was speaking at the launch of Vodafone’s #TeamofUs bus competition. Source: Morgan Treacy/INPHO“I knew what was ahead of me and I’ve just tried to me optimistic about it. The physios and rehab specialists involved in Leinster and all the help I’ve been getting has been great.”Ten days after the operation, Murphy was back in Leinster working with the province’s medical staff to build the muscle back up in his knee. It has been a long road back and there are still plenty of hurdles to overcome yet but he has remained positive throughout.“I knew straight away that I wouldn’t be playing for a long time so you take the positives out of it. I can work on things. I had a bit of shoulder and groin pain before it so I have been working on that, just to get back in hopefully the best physical shape I have been in.“I’m trying to fill up my time with other stuff. I’m finishing my degree [in Business Studies] this year as well. It’s about keeping yourself busy. So far so good, as good as this can be.”Jordi Murphy and Sean Cronin launched the Vodafone #TeamOfUs Bus competition yesterday.

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The two Greek soldiers being held in custody in Turkey, continue to face an uncertain fate four months since being arrested.Captured in March by Turkish authorities after crossing the Greece-Turkish border, which they insist happened by mistake, it has since emerged that the pair could face a two year prison sentence.On Tuesday a Turkish judge at a court in Edirne rejected the fifth appeal put forward for the release of the soldiers.A Turkish prosecutor told the court that there was “strong suspicion” the Greek soldiers had entered a restricted military zone.If the charge of espionage is pursued, the soldiers could face up to two years in prison if convicted, the prosecutor said.Meanwhile given the soldiers have no fixed address in Turkey, the judicial officials said there were concerns they would flee the country if released.Appearing on Greek television station ANT1 on Wednesday, Government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos responded to the matter, accusing the Turkish authorities of “playing with human lives”, reports Kathimerini, and claimed that Ankara looks to be using the soldiers as a bargaining chip.Mr Tzanakopoulos expressed solidarity with the soldiers, stating that Athens would use “all means of political leverage and all diplomatic and legal avenues” to assist in their release.The court’s decision also came under fire by Greece’s Deputy Defense Minister Fotis Kouvelis, who said that Athens would under no means be engaging in a trade-off of any kind for the release of the soldiers.The rejected appeal follows a brief meeting between Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Turkish President Tayyip Erdoğan in Brussels where they were taking part in a NATO summit, during which they agreed to focus on reducing tensions in the Aegean.

Sen John McCain. Photo: ReutersJohn McCain, a former prisoner of war in Vietnam who served as a US senator from Arizona for more than three decades, died on Saturday at the age of 81.Below are some of the reactions to his death:US president Donald Trump“My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of senator John McCain. Our hearts and prayers are with you!”Senate majority leader Mitch Mcconnell“In an era filled with cynicism about national unity and public service, John McCain’s life shone as a bright example. He showed us that boundless patriotism and self-sacrifice are not outdated concepts or cliches, but the building blocks of an extraordinary life.”Former president Barack Obama And Michelle Obama“Few of us have been tested the way John once was, or required to show the kind of courage that he did. But all of us can aspire to the courage to put the greater good above our own. At John’s best, he showed us what that means. And for that, we are all in his debt. Michelle and I send our most heartfelt condolences to Cindy and their family.”Former president GEORGE W. BUSH“Some lives are so vivid, it is difficult to imagine them ended. Some voices are so vibrant, it is hard to think of them stilled. John McCain was a man of deep conviction and a patriot of the highest order. He was a public servant in the finest traditions of our country. And to me, he was a friend whom I’ll deeply miss.”Former vice president Joe Biden“As a POW, John endured the worst of what human beings can do to one another. In politics, he fell short of his greatest ambition. At the end of his life he faced a cruel and relentless disease. And yet through it all he never lost sight of what he believed most: Country First. And the spirit that drove him was never extinguished: we are here to commit ourselves to something bigger than ourselves.”Former president Jimmy Carter“John McCain was a man of honor, a true patriot in the best sense of the word. Americans will be forever grateful for his heroic military service and for his steadfast integrity as a member of the United States Senate.”US vice president Mike Pence“Karen and I send our deepest condolences to Cindy and the entire McCain family on the passing of Senator John McCain. We honor his lifetime of service to this nation in our military and in public life. His family and friends will be in our prayers. God bless John McCain.”Arizona governor Doug Ducey“John McCain is one American who will never be forgotten. He was a giant. An icon. An American hero. But here at home, we were most proud to call him a fellow Arizonan. Like so many of us, he was not born here, but his spirit, service and fierce independence shaped the state with which he became synonymous.”Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau“Senator John McCain was an American patriot and hero whose sacrifices for his country, and lifetime of public service, were an inspiration to millions. Canadians join Americans tonight in celebrating his life and mourning his passing.”House minority leader Nancy Pelosi“The nation is in tears. Today, with the passing of John McCain, Congress and America have lost a leader and public servant of deep patriotism, outstanding bravery and undaunted spirit.”Former governor Of Alaska Sarah Palin“Today we lost an American original. Sen. John McCain was a maverick and a fighter, never afraid to stand for his beliefs. John never took the easy path in life – and through sacrifice and suffering he inspired others to serve something greater than self.”Australian prime minister Scott Morrison“Senator John McCain was a true friend of Australia who was committed to strengthening the alliance between our two nations. He was a man of great courage and conviction. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Cindy, and all the McCain family during this time.”NATO secretary general Jens Stoltenberg“John McCain – soldier and senator, American and Atlanticist. He will be remembered both in Europe and North America for his courage and character, and as a strong supporter of NATO. My thoughts are with his family and loved ones.”French president Emmanuel Macron“John McCain was a true American hero. He devoted his entire life to his country. His voice will be missed. Our respectful thoughts go to his beloved ones.”British prime minister Theresa May“John McCain was a great statesman, who embodied the idea of service over self. It was an honour to call him a friend of the UK. My deepest sympathies go to his family, and the American people.”German foreign minister Heiko Maas“He stood for an America that is a reliable and close partner … An America that takes strong responsibility for others and sticks to its values and principles even at difficult moments.”EU ambassador to the United States David O’sullivan“Senator McCain recognised the enormous benefits of Europe’s peaceful rebirth after 1945, and the crucial investment in that effort by successive US administrations. He supported ever stronger transatlantic cooperation built on that shared legacy. We must all try to follow his example in strengthening EU-US ties and dealing with the challenges ahead.”Manfred Weber, head of the European People’s Party in The European Parliament“He was a real American hero, a fighter for democracy and a friend of Europe. We will strongly miss him, especially in times when politicians like him are needed.”Lech Walesa, former president Of Poland“With great sadness I accepted the news of death of Mr Senator John McCain.

Fix broken plugin content on the Web with NoPlugin by Martin Brinkmann on June 08, 2017 in Internet – Last Update: June 12, 2017 – 9 commentsNoPlugin is a browser add-on for Firefox, Chrome and Opera that has been designed to fix web content that requires plugins on the Internet.Plugins are on their way out, with all major browser developers having announced that classic plugins won’t be part of future browser versions anymore.The web is moving to a HTML5 future, and plugins are a relic of the past. While Flash is still being kept around, at least for a little bit longer, depending on the browser that you are using, plugins other than Flash may not work anymore already.See Firefox, DRM and the end of NPAPI, or Chrome launches without NPAPI plugin support for further information.The removal of support for plugins however may have an effect on an Internet user’s web experience. While browsers may not support plugins anymore, plenty of sites out there still require them for some content.If you visit such a web page in a modern browser, you usually get an error message. Chrome for instance displays “this plugin is not supported”, and Firefox that the “video format or mime type is not supported”.The disabling of plugins in browsers makes this content inaccessible. While plenty of sites are using HTML5 now for their content, it is fair to say that some sites will never be updated. Pages or sites that are no longer maintained for instance, or sites for which the operator cannot or won’t make the investment that is required.NoPluginNoPlugin has been designed as a solution for this issue. It is a cross-browser, open source, WebExtension.Basically, what NoPlugin does is scan web pages that you visit for plugin content (embedded content). Note that the extension is limited to media content.Depending on the content, two things may happen. If the browser can play the content without plugins, the embedded content is replaced with a HTML5 player so that the content can be played directly in the browser.If the content cannot be played, a download option is provided instead so that the content can be downloaded to the local system and played in a local player then.The message on the screenshot below for instance links directly to the media file so that you can download it to your local system (This page is trying to load plugin content here. Click to open it in your media player).A click on the open content button downloads the media file to the local system so that you can play it using any media player that supports the format (mov in this case).NoPlugin may play mp4, mp3, m4a and wav files directly in the browser. Any other media cannot be played directly, but is provided as a download option instead.VerdictNoPlugin has been created as a remedy to make left-behind media sites that rely on plugins to play content work in modern web browsers. The use of the extension depends largely on your browsing habits.If one of your favorite sites requires plugins for instance, you will benefit from NoPlugin provided that it detects the embed code correctly on it and provides you with a download or direct streaming option.Now you: Do you need plugins for some stuff on the Internet?Summary12345 Author Rating4.5 based on 2 votes Software Name NoPluginSoftware Category BrowserLanding Page https://github.com/corbindavenport/noplugin Advertisement
When U.S. guitarist Ry Cooder and British producer Nick Gold rendezvoused in Cuba in April 1996 to record some of the aging masters of the island’sson music, they turned to Juan de Marcos González, the bandleader of the Havana band Sierra Maestra.The foreigners told him they wanted at least one woman for the sessions. For González, the choice was easy: Omara Portuondo, sometimes called “the Billie Holiday of Cuba.”Legend has it that the members of the soon-to-be-dubbed Buena Vista Social Club were forgotten and down on their luck when Cooder and Gold found them. But Portuondo was still well-known and busy. At the time, this was just one more gig for her before an Asian tour.“It wasn’t a surprise to me that we became famous,” the 84-year-old singer said by phone from Chicago, where she was performing as part of Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club’s “Adiós Tour.”“We were famous before we joined this group. Ibrahim Ferrer, Eliades Ochoa, Compay Segundo and I were all popular singers, both with bands and as solos,” she said. “We all knew each other, and we all loved each other.”The group’s 1997 Grammy Award-winning album, “Buena Vista Social Club,” ended up going platinum in the United States and selling more than eight million copies worldwide, and it’s widely credited for sparking renewed international interest in Cuban music and tourism. This year, 14 unreleased tracks — four from the 1996 sessions, six from subsequent studio sessions for solo albums by the band’s members, and four live performances — have been released as the album “Lost and Found.”Portuondo, Ochoa and Barbarito Torres have reunited for the “Adios Tour.” Another alumnus from the 1996 sessions, trumpet soloist Manuel “Guajiro” Mirabal, also is on the tour, as are music director Jesús “Aguaje” Ramos and nine younger Cuban musicians steeped in the traditional sound.The original cast on the 1997 album played only three concerts: two in Amsterdam and one at New York’s Carnegie Hall, which was filmed by director Wim Wenders for the Academy Award-winning documentary “Buena Vista Social Club.” After those three concerts, the band members made solo albums and toured as solo acts or as subgroups of the famous first lineup.

Maybe this really is “adios.”But the chain of inheritance is hard to break. Lisa-Kainde Díaz and Naomi Díaz, the twin daughters of Anga Díaz, earlier this year released their impressive debut album, “Ibeyi,” also their duo’s name, taken from the Yoruban word for “twins.” Blending Cuban rhythms, electronic keyboards and samplers and close-harmony vocals, they carry “son” into the 21st century. One inescapable model for their female harmonies was the quartet Cuarteto d’Aida, which featured Portuondo from 1953 through 1967. The group was part of the “feeling” music movement that swept through Cuba at the beginning of the 1950s. This musical new wave emphasized the free interpretation of Afro-Cuban singing over the notated precision of the Spanish conservatories, and Portuondo emerged as perhaps its most gifted role model.“I did ‘feeling’ music because all the younger people were doing this new kind of music that relied more on emotion and interpretation than on composition,” she said. “I was singing like that for a long time before the Buena Vista Social Club, and for a long time after.” Cuban singer Omara Portuondo and guitarist Eliades Ochoa of Buena Vista Social Club pose in Paris, on March 24, 2015. Bertrand Guay/AFPCuarteto d’Aida often performed at Havana’s Tropicana, the most famous nightclub in the Caribbean in the ’50s. Trees grew between tables within the giant, arched windows, and scantily clad, multi-feathered chorus girls danced in the aisles and on the catwalks overhead. When Nat King Cole came to Cuba in 1958 to record his first Spanish-language album, “Cole Español,” he played the Tropicana.“I was singing with the Aida Quartet,” Portuondo recalled, “and we sang with him at the Tropicana. He was a wonderful musician and a wonderful gentleman. He wanted to sing the real Cuban music, and we helped him do that.” Havana’s Tropicana. Marjorie Kaufman/Wikimedia CommonsEarly in 1959, however, the Cuban Revolution toppled the Fulgencio Batista dictatorship and seized control of Havana’s nightclubs from such American mobsters as Meyer Lansky and Santo Trafficante. U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower imposed an embargo on travel and trade with Cuba in 1961, and it wasn’t until this past December that President Obama announced plans to reestablish diplomatic ties with Cuba.There’s no question that the international success of the Buena Vista Social Club has made a small contribution to the easing of tensions between Cuba and the rest of the world.“Music is the language of all the people in the world, not just in Cuba, but also in the United States and Europe,” Portuondo said. “It helps people to understand each other better. When you do music, people enjoy it so much that it doesn’t matter what countries they’re from. If I sing a love song in Spanish, I don’t know how, but everyone understands the song and feels romantic. If I do a song with rhythm, everyone understands the beat and dances along.”For many listeners, their warm feelings for Cuban music and the Cuban people began with that 1997 Buena Vista Social Club album. The “Adiós Tour” offers perhaps the last chance to share an evening with some of the club’s original members.© 2015, The Washington Post Facebook Comments
It has indeed been 30 years since New Division first made its mark on the capital’s nightlife and it is remarkable to think how many different generations have partied there. Celebrating its legacy and its birthday, the bar is organising a party on July 28 with a dozen DJs.Open since 1989, it was initially in Ayios Andreas before it moved to its current location in 1993, where The Four Oaks Pub used to be.Its summery garden is a favourite spot for locals yet there’s something about New Division that invites a diverse crowd, be it old, young, Cypriots or tourists.“We are just welcoming to all people,” says bar manager Marios. “We have our doors open for everyone who wants to join us and it actually makes us happy having a wide range of people coming to the bar. Another factor would be the music, which most of the times people of all ages and origins can enjoy and relate to.”It’s a venue that wants to make people who visit feel like they are somewhere familiar, somewhere where they can dance if they feel like it or just relax and have a drink. And having hosted countless DJs and live bands over the years, music variety is a big part of the bar’s success.For their 30-year anniversary, the party will start at 5pm on July 28 with music by some of the DJs the bar has collaborated with over the years. Stef &Zen, Kara, Groovy Tourist (a.k.a. Johnny Blue), Claudio & Vassilis Palamas, Pueblo Franco & The Mighty Scoop, Sofronis, Marcos and Cotsios o Pikatillis will be on the decks creating the party atmosphere.
