Column Does celebrity opinion promote or distract from the news

first_img Dealing w/ Hamas is like dealing w/ a crazy woman who’s trying to kill u – u can only hold her wrists so long before you have to slap her— Bill Maher (@billmaher) July 18, 2014 Whose opinion matters? Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem got to play out their own drama as they initially described Israeli action in Gaza as “genocide” before backtracking quite quickly.With Jon Voight, Glenn Beck and even Ryan Kavanaugh all offering a response to Bardem and Cruz’s response to the crisis, one wonders how much energy and focus has been wasted on this media sideshow that might have been devoted to actually exploring the conflict and its context.Everybody is entitled to their opinion. And, outside of professional qualification and education, it is hard to argue that anybody’s opinion is that much more valid than anybody else’s.For example, comedian and actor Russell Brand found himself caught in a ‘feud’ with Fox News broadcaster Sean Hannity over Gaza. Brand has an endearing willingness to get political and to wrestle with big questions, but his views feel like they haven’t been properly thought through, beyond an engagingly feckless teenage “screw the system!” mentality. His somewhat vague suggestions for social revolution tend to ignore the fact that such large-scale revolutions – historically speaking – don’t tend to help the downtrodden.But, then, is Brand’s opinion any less valid than that of Sean Hannity? After all, Hannity’s only job outside of punditry would seem to have been a brief stint as a “general contractor” and managed to secure his high-profile radio slot through rigorous self-promotion, advertising himself as “the most talked about college radio host in America.”Hannity may have three New York Times best-selling books to his name, but is he more qualified than Brand or any other celebrities wading into the Gaza debate?There is a pretty significant difference between a celebrity who attracts a broad audience allowing them to get on their soapbox about all manner of issues, and career pundits working at major news networks. After all, for all that Fox news likes to stir up controversy, it is facing the fact that it is not attracting new viewers. Its audience is ageing and dying.It has been argued that this dwindling and dying audience is what led the network to radicalise, playing to the stereotype of crazy right-wing conservatives in order to court fleeting mainstream attention for their absurdity.Still, the point remains. People interact with career pundits differently from how they react to celebrities.People seek to affirm their existing opinionsStudies demonstrate that people seek out news to affirm – rather than inform – their opinions. People tend to approach news media with a confirmation bias, seeking to validate their own opinions.On the other hand, celebrity politics have been demonstrated to have an impact on their fans. It has been suggested that Oprah Winfrey’s support of Obama was responsible for earning him approximately 1,000,000 votes. Celebrity endorsements are also suggested to have particular influence on younger people.This isn’t inherently a bad thing. Encouraging people to engage with social issues should be supported. Any person inspired to learn more about Israel or Palestine as a result of Rihanna or Madonna is a good thing. Convincing somebody to give even €5 towards a charity helping refugees or the displaced is something to be lauded.Celebrities do great work supporting worthy causes like children’s charities or disaster relief or raising awareness of problems that might slip under the radar otherwise. They can leverage their name recognition into practical and material good in the world.Of course, it is also possible to be cynical about such things. Live Aid might have raised a phenomenal amount of awareness and money to fight famine in Africa, but surely the cost of Phil Collins’ Concorde trip between the UK and the US could have been donated to the cause? Would we really have missed that second set so much?Similarly, one might wonder whether Bono is hypocritical in campaigning so ceaselessly about international causes while cynically exploiting various tax loopholes to avoid supporting disadvantaged members of the Irish population.There is a catch…And while encouraging people to question and engage while pushing these issues to the fore of public consciousness is a good thing, there is a catch. There is a difference between trying to bring an issue to somebody’s attention and using a high profile figure to put forward an opinion.Giving people the facts to form their own opinion is one thing; expecting them to parrot your own is another entirely. There is a very real and demonstrable harm that can come with a celebrity using their fame to propose their subjective opinion as universal fact.Model, celebrity and commentator Jenny McCarthy has been a public critic of the vaccination programme in America for years. Although she has recently tried to deny that she was “anti-vaccination”, the facts speak for themselves.Despite a complete lack of evidence supporting her position, McCarthy was able to give a hugely harmful philosophy a platform, lending credibility and profile to a paranoid and groundless movement. McCarthy’s advocacy of a completely absurd position has very real consequences. There is a reason that the URL for the “Anti-Vaccine Body Count” points to www.jennymccarthybodycount.com.Valuable debate v hot airMcCarthy is an extreme example, but there are plenty of others. While much of Jane Fonda’s conduct while visiting the Viet Cong in 1973 has been exaggerated or fabricated, one cannot help but wonder how her documented description of the POW’s as “hypocrites and liars” affected public perception of the veterans returning home.Regardless of what one thought of the Vietnam War, those soldiers – who were not involved in the politics or decisions, and may even have been drafted – were treated rather shamefully by the American public in the wake of the conflict.Ultimately, everybody is entitled to their opinion. To suggest anything else at the conclusion of an opinion piece would seem just a tad hypocritical. It is up to the person reading the opinion to decide how much weight to afford it.At the same time, it is worth considering the exposure and relative weight given to celebrity opinions of these sorts of heated and controversial events, and whether the volume and traffic they generate serves as worthy promotion of valid causes – or distracting interference from the real issues.Darren Mooney has a movie blog, them0vieblog.com .

Opinions are like…Well, everybody’s got opinions on opinions. And not all opinions are created equal, with some obviously carrying more weight than others.Some of that weight comes from real-world experience and personal circumstances; it might also be rooted in education or professional history. People might invest more faith in an opinion coming from a person elected or appointed to a particular position, trusting the selection process and the entrance requirements.And then there are opinions that are given weight because of their source. In this age of social media and the 24 hour news cycle, celebrity is cold hard currency.You may have discussed the situation in Gaza with friends or colleagues, in front of an audience no larger than the local pub or the office canteen, but celebrities are bantering back and forth about the issue on a much larger platform in front of thousands (if not millions) of spectators.A lot of these are suitably generic. Selina Gomez insisted that she was “not picking any sides” and instead asked her followers to “pray for Gaza.”Madonna decided, meanwhile, that pleas for peace are more convincing when branded across shirtless back-up dancers. Source: Madonna via InstagramA wider choice of mediaThe people of planet Earth can rest easy knowing that Kim Kardashian was not just praying for Israel or Palestine, but also for everybody “across the world.”These are mostly harmless platitudes. The worst that can be really be said is that such comments may distract from the reports of what is actually happening in Gaza, focusing stories and discussion on celebrities and assuring the public that they do care.Then again, one of the wonders of the internet age is that there’s a wider choice of media than ever before.Running a story about some celebrity’s 140-character moment of insight does not prevent a similar feature on the history or context of the conflict, or the real material suffering experienced by those caught in its midst. The worst it does is bump those pieces of real journalism a little further down the page in place of cynical clickbait.However, there are more interesting and powerful moments of commentary – sentiments that are aggressively and actively political, instead of generic Hallmark sentiments. Consider Rihanna’s “Free Palestine” tweet that garnered 7,000 retweets before being deleted eight minutes after she first posted it.Bill Maher opted for the unconventional approach of mixing some misogyny with his political opinion, presumably to keep things fresh.last_img read more

Climate change a threat to Acropolis and other ancient monuments scientists say

first_imgThe threat of climate change is increasing by the day, and now scientists have revealed that the threat is also very real for a number of ancient Greek monuments, including the Acropolis, with signs already visible.The marble is being eroded by air pollution and acid rain, while droughts and torrential rain are effecting the structures of ancient walls and temples.“The walls of the (ancient) city have more erosion than in the past,” Maria Vlazaki, General Secretary of the Greek Culture Ministry, told Reuters.The threats to world heritage were addressed by academics and policy makers who met in Athens on Saturday at a conference jointly hosted by the Greek government, the UN and UNESCO.They discussed the measures that would need to be taken to counter the effects of climate change, and are looking to have the matter included on the agenda for the upcoming UN Summit for Climate Change, which is taking place in New York in September.READ: Greek students stage climate change rally in AthensThe Acropolis, which dates back to the 5th century BC, has been at the centre of ongoing preservation efforts for decades. But now there is increasing concern over the numerous ancient sites across the country that are situated on sites exposed to the elements.While environmental damage and deterioration have always been a challenge, Dimitrios Pandermalis, director of the Acropolis Museum, said the threats are certainly accelerating.“The scale of things is different and the destruction can be irreversible,” he said.Ms Vlazaki agrees.“Every year, we have more cases… We give more money, unexpected money to protect the walls of the (ancient) cities that had no problems before, to protect the coastal area,” she said.With extreme weather events having become more frequent in Greece, from forest fires and flooding to drought, to help better protect them Professor Christos Zerefos told Reuters that Greece needs better shelter for its monuments and a monitoring system to provide additional protection when required.READ: OPINION | Un-Learning with the Left: Greek Elections 2019 Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Free lecture Maintenance of Greek cultural traditions and teaching of folk dancing

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram This month Greek dance teacher and choreographer Nick Papaefthimiou will present a free lecture at the Greek Centre delving into the maintenance of Greek cultural traditions and the teaching of folk dancing in the diaspora.During the lecture, a number of questions will be explored:How do second, third and fourth generation Greeks living in the diaspora without lived experiences, experience a deep connection to their culture and develop a Greek cultural identity?What is evolution and what is dilution of our culture?How should teaching of dance in the diaspora differ from teaching in the homeland?What teaching methodologies should be employed which will foster a better understanding of the role of both Greek dancing and the dance teacher in the maintenance of our cultural heritage?Do we want our next generations to understand and reflect the true essence of our folk culture or have the depth of a meme or slogan on a t-shirt?WHAT’S ON Guide: Greek-inspired events across Australia, 8 August onwardBorn in Australia, Mr Papaefthimiou is the child of migrants who ventured Down Under from northern Greece post-war. Involved in folk dancing from a very young age, his interest led him into teaching and organising events while still in his teens.Over the years he has regularly visited Greece, during which he has collected authentic traditional folk costumes and musical instruments from various regions, learning dance steps of various styles, collecting old musical recordings and making his own field recordings.His driving passion is to preserve the rich Greek cultural heritage in Melbourne and Victoria, and to share it with other communities and the general public.Hosted as part of the Greek Community of Melbourne’s History and Culture Seminar Series, it will be a particularly special presentation, given in honour of the late Rozalyn (Roz) Nicolaou, a Senior Scientist from St Vincent’s Pathology and an active member of the Australian Messinian community.When: Thursday 15 August at 7.00 pmWhere: Greek Centre (Mezz, 168 Lonsdale St, Melbourne VIC)READ MORE: Manasis to host annual dinner dance over two days at new venuelast_img read more

Yellowstone gonflé par des poches de magma

first_imgYellowstone “gonflé” par des poches de magmaSur le site de Yellowstone, parc national situé dans le Wyoming aux Etats-Unis, des experts ont observé des déformations du sol. Après plusieurs mesures, ils ont constaté que celui-ci était plus élevé de 25 centimètres à certains endroits qu’en 2004 !A Yellowstone, le paysage a connu un changement exceptionnel. C’est ce que rapportent, dans la revue National Geographic, plusieurs scientifiques. Le volcan qui s’y trouve aurait pris une “profonde inspiration” et aurait, par conséquent, poussé le sol vers le haut par endroits.Ce volcan, qui bouillonne, a connu des éruptions dans le passé qui furent à chaque fois mille fois plus puissantes que celle du Mont St-Helens en 1980. La caldeira de Yellowstone, qui couvre une surface de 40 x 60 kilomètres dans le Wyoming, est un ancien cratère formé après la dernière grosse activité de ce “supervolcan”, il y a 640.000 ans. Depuis, environ 30 “petites” éruptions ont rempli cette caldeira de lave et de cendres, et le paysage était relativement plat.À lire aussiQuand des Américains assistent à la naissance d’un bébé phoque sur une plageMais depuis 2004, les scientifiques ont remarqué que le terrain prenait de la hauteur (environ 7 centimètres par an, pour ralentir à 1 centimètre par an ou moins à partir de 2007). Au total, le sol s’est élevé à plus de 25 centimètres comparé au niveau de 2004. Selon les experts cités par National Geographic, il y aurait un réservoir de magma qui gonflerait dans les profondeurs, à environ 10 kilomètres de la surface. Heureusement, cette brusque montée du terrain ne présage pas de catastrophe imminente. Les experts veulent tout de même se pencher sur ce phénomène, qui leur permettra sans doute de savoir quand aura lieu la prochaine éruption. L’observatoire volcanique de Yellowstone du U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) a d’ailleurs commencé à cartographier la caldeira et ses parties “gonflées” en utilisant des systèmes GPS et un radar synthétique interférométrique d’ouverture, qui permet de mesurer les déformations du sol.Un phénomène cycliqueLa théorie actuelle est la suivante : un réservoir de magma se nourrit d’un panache de roche très chaude en provenance du manteau de la Terre. Lorsque la quantité de magma augmente, le réservoir se gonfle et la surface, qui nous est visible, s’étend. Selon les données géologiques recueillies sur Yellowstone, il y aurait un cycle d’inflation et de déflation depuis les 15.000 dernières années. Le phénomène ne serait donc pas nouveau.National Geographic donne l’exemple de mesures faites entre 1976 et 1984 : la caldeira a pris 18 centimètres de haut, pour ensuite retomber, une dizaine d’années plus tard à 14 centimètres.Le système hydrothermal qui se trouve sous la surface de Yellowstone pourrait aussi jouer un rôle dans ces déformations du sol. Tout comme les 3.000 séismes qui secouent le site chaque année.Le 25 janvier 2011 à 11:30 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Uber launches new nonstop shared ride feature in San Diego

first_imgUber launches new “non-stop shared ride” feature in San Diego SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The ride-booking company Uber launched a new ride option in San Diego today, allowing certain Uber Pool riders to reach their destination in roughly the same time as a non-shared ride like an Uber X.When riders select an Uber X ride, they will be prompted with the option to choose the last seat in an existing Uber Pool and be the first person the Uber Pool driver drops off. Riders who choose the “non-stop shared ride”option will receive a credit on the app that can be used for future rides or Uber Eats purchases.Uber announced the feature in a blog post Thursday celebrating the fifth anniversary of Uber Pool entering beta testing. The non-stop shared rides option will be offered to riders in 15 major metro cities in addition to SanDiego, according to the company.“This feature, which is available in several U.S. cities, is one example of how we’re identifying new ways for riders to access a shared ride on Uber’s platform. … We’re continuing to focus on ways to do more for riders’shared experience in the places where Uber Pool operates,” Uber product experts Brandon Trew and Neil Kamireddy wrote in the post.Since launching the option in August 2014, the company has introduced Uber Pool to more than 50 markets around the world. According to the company, the carpooling option has saved nine million gallons of gas and the emission of 80,000 tons of carbon dioxide when compared to riders choosing Uber X.

The Flash movies bad guys could be The Rogues

first_imgA rumor is suggesting that The Flash won’t just be up against one new villain in his standalone movie, he’ll be up against a Rogue’s gallery.That’s according to Heroic Hollywood, who says that the villains will be The Rogues.That’s the name for a loosely affiliated group of criminals that have harassed him for decades, with a group starting to use that name back during the Silver Age of Comics. Originally formed by a group of convicts after they were broken out of jail by the one and only Gorilla Grodd (who at DC do we have to convince that a mind-controlling hyper-intelligent ape is the way to go for their grimdark films?), everyone from Captain Cold to The Top to Captain Boomerang. Most recently new groups have appeared with the New 52 and Injustice: Gods Among Us, so which specific one the film uses would be completely up in the air.In the TV show, The Rogues are already all over the place. Captain Cold and Heat Wave have both caused him troubles in the last two seasons, and Mirror Master is set to appear in the upcoming third.Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About Kevin) will star in The Flash as the titular character. After a brief cameo in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice he will also show up in next year’s Justice League movie, giving us plenty of Flash to enjoy.Rick Famuyiwa, director of the utterly fantastic Dope, is on the project after original director (and zombie mashup enthusiast) Seth Grahame-Smith left after creative differences. Production is expected to start later this year from Grahame-Smith’s script with a planned theatrical release date of March 16, 2018.last_img read more

A Mobile App That Changes the Way Fans Watch Pro Cycling

first_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global 2 min read October 9, 2012 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. With courses often exceeding 100 miles, professional bike racing isn’t exactly a spectator sport. Along the route, a fan is lucky to catch a mere five seconds of frenzied excitement as the riders zoom past. This is why gearheads are geeking out over Tour Tracker, a mobile app for iOS and Android smartphones.The app provides fans with real-time tracking of the racers on course maps and elevation profiles, live streaming video, live text commentary, chat rooms, race results, stage overviews and more. “We try to replicate as much about the race experience as we possibly can so a fan knows everything that’s going on,” says Allan Padgett, the app’s creator.Padgett, a recreational cyclist and one of the creators of the Adobe Acrobat software program, volunteered to build the first prototype of Tour Tracker in December 2006 as a showcase for Adobe’s Flash media player, finishing it just in time for 2007’s Amgen Tour of California bike race. After the prototype’s initial success, Adobe allowed Padgett to continue working on it in his spare time (the programming was originally all open source, so Adobe never owned it), gradually improving it with each successive Amgen Tour.It wasn’t until 2011–when America’s two other premier multiday races, the Tour of Utah and Colorado’s USA Pro Cycling Challenge, came calling–that Padgett made Tour Tracker his full-time job. He won’t divulge the revenue generated by his app, but the business model is simple: Padgett either sells the app to the race, and they sell advertising or sponsorships against it; or he and the race set up a profit-sharing arrangement from sponsorships or app sales. During last year’s Pro Challenge, the app attracted more than 150,000 unique visitors.This year, Padgett again teamed up with the Amgen Tour and five other stage races, including the crown jewel of the sport, the Tour de France. He has other apps nearing release for a number of sports, including Ironman triathlon races, but until then he’s cranking on his ongoing reinvention of bike racing coverage.That’s great news to superuser Chris Neumann, a cycling enthusiast and entrepreneur from Ross, Calif., who proclaims, “Tour Tracker is what watching all sports should be like.” This story appears in the September 2012 issue of .

US Department of Education will no longer act on trans bathroom complaints

first_imgThe US Department of Education will no longer act on or investigate into complaints made by transgender students about bathroom access.The DoE made its decision to scrap investigating complaints about trans discrimination citing the reason as Title IX only prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sex, not gender identity.  The decision to further roll back protections for trans students has been slammed by LGBTQ+ activists and senior politicians.Related: Judge refuses to block school from enforcing pro-trans policySenator Patty Murray, a top Democrat in the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee said that it was an “unambiguous step backwards for civil rights in this country to choose to “ignore the rights of transgender students and to not enforce Title IX when it comes to their protection”.Human Rights Campaign legal director Sarah Warbelow said that the DoE’s decision to not act on reports of civil rights violations was “reprehensible”.“The department’s failure to act conflicts with the law in multiple jurisdictions, including federal circuits, and further emboldens those who seek to discriminate against transgender students.“Once again, Secretary [Betsy] DeVos proves she is not interested in protecting transgender students and instead is choosing to advance the dangerous Trump-Pence anti-LGBTQ agenda,” she added.The decision was coined as “cruel” by Eliza Byard, the executive director of GLSEN, an LGBTQ+ education network.She insisted that the newly adopted policies were “hurting transgender students in concrete and far-reaching ways” and that the Office for Civil Rights in the Department of Education had a duty to “ensure that marginalized and vulnerable students had a champion”.Related: Trump ‘set to dismantle’ protections for transgender children“Under Secretary DeVos, the office has abdicated that solemn responsibility for transgender youth.“OCR’s cruel new policy flies in the face of the highest court rulings on this issue, which found unequivocally that denying transgender students appropriate bathroom access is a violation of Title IX,” Byard said.Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… US Education Department refuses transgender students’ bathroom casesIn landmark ruling, US federal appeals court sides with trans student in Wisconsin bathroom caseConservative Christian colleges in America grapple with LGBTI issuesPINK NEWS- (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)Elizabeth Hill, a spokesperson for the agency, told BuzzFeed that the 1972 title of the Education Amendments does not specify discrimination in relevance to facilities such as bathrooms.She said: “Where students, including transgender students, are penalized or harassed for failing to conform to sex-based stereotypes, that is sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX.“In the case of bathrooms, however, long-standing regulations provide that separating facilities on the basis of sex is not a form of discrimination prohibited by Title IX.Related: Another part of the Trump administration just got caught dismantling work on LGBT issues“The secretary would contend that it is the job of Congress or the courts, not the bureaucracy, to determine whether or not the term ‘sex’ under Title IX encompasses ‘gender identity,” Hill added.The Trump administration’s interpretation of Title XI scraps the definition by the Obama administration completely.Guidance issued under the 44th president in 2016 stated that public schools must allow students to use the bathroom that resonated with their gender identity.The title also protected trans student.Hill added that the education secretary, Betsy DeVos, and the department “believe strongly that all students are to be protected from harassment and bullying and have the opportunity to learn in a safe and nurturing environment”. eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us)last_img read more
