While numbers were down in child abuse offenses for last year; the Department of Social Services still held a parents’ workshop aimed at giving families the clues to detecting abuse. The Department of Social Services says in the past four years, crime reports expose that the abuse tends to fluctuate around 30 reports a year… but in 2013 that number surged to 39; higher than the number of reports for 2012 which were at 28. These types of cases are often left off of the annual police crime statistics report due to the so called sensitive nature of the offenses, but Social Services confirms that in 2012, there were three cases of cruelty to juvenile, one case of incest, nine indecent assault reports, three reports of rape and even one report of kidnapping. While 2013 saw four reports of buggery, six cases of cruelty to juvenile, 11 cases of indecent assault, one case of indecent assault on a male, two rapes and 15 cases of unlawful carnal knowledge.

I read your comments pic.twitter.com/BGx3Nv7iiw— R O S A L Í A (@rosaliavt) November 2, 2018 Twitter Nominated for five Latin GRAMMYs, meet the artist who is getting noticed for her striking blend of new and old, flamenco and electro-pop, and tells the world: “Not now or ever will I put flamenco aside”Ana YglesiasGRAMMYs Nov 9, 2018 – 6:14 pm Meet Rosalía. The young Spanish singer is getting noticed globally for her modern take on her country’s tradition of flamenco music, rife with passion and infused with her electronic-infused and pop-ready flair. Her unique sound is something the world is showing its ready for and feels almost as if it should belong in a new genre shaped by her alone. Email How Rosalía Is Reinventing What It Means To Be A Global Pop Star Facebook The momentum the rising star has built in just a year in both Spanish and English language markets is quite impressive. She has been garnering a diverse, growing group of music fans, including other musicians. She worked with the likes of Pharrell Williams and J Balvin; “Brillo” is featured on Balvin’s hugely popular Latin GRAMMY-nominated album Vibras.Other musicians such as James Blake and Dua Lipa have noticed her as well and are on her growing list of fans—Lipa shouted her out when we asked her who she wanted to collaborate with a few weeks back. Rosalía told Pitchfork how “working with Pharrell was a dream….Collaborations like that are where you come up with sounds that maybe you wouldn’t have found otherwise.” The future looks bright for the young, innovative singer—keep reading to get a taste of her sound and style.”Malamente”Rosalía released “Malamente” as the lead single from El Mal Querer, and the music world has paid attention; the music video has 29.8 million views on YouTube to date. It is a great introduction to Rosalía and her sound, with flamenco-inspired clapping, or palmas, over a catchy, electronic beat and a mix of both haunting vocals and spoken word; her singing and clapping is interspersed at several points with an echoing repeat of words “mira,” or look—indeed the world is.She recently addressed the personal and cultural significance of the video’s visuals themes, like the motorcycle “bullfight”— a controversial subject in Spain, as bullfighting was banned in Catalonia in 2010 and later overturned by the Spanish government in 2016 for reasons of “cultural heritage.” Her aim was for the video to reflect traditional and modern elements of her Spanish culture, as she does in her music by having Nico Mendez, the director of both videos (“Malamente” and “Pienso en tu Mirá”), “visually translating this musical idea, which is about tradition but also about experimentation, with the current sound of electronic music. So on one hand it has this classic side, and on the other this current and transgressive vision.” she explained to Billboard. “I told him I wanted to do a video that had to do with Spanish iconography, with all of the images that make up our culture.””Pienso en tu Mirá”This song also features a steady dose of palmas, which play a part in much of her music. The video features more artist references to her Spanish heritage, semi-trucks, which were a regular feature of the industrial suburb she grew up in, a bull mounted on the wall, a miniature singing flamenco girl in the style of a Lladró, cermamic figurines made (and popular) in Spain. In her videos we get a taste of the star’s edgy, hip fashion sense, which is at times very street-style inspired and at others almost VIP-entrance-to-the-club ready. The young star is an artist and experimenter in all senses of both words.”[For this new album] I felt that I wanted to experiment with electronic music, to develop an idea that I´d had since I was 17. The idea of flamenco and sampling. Because electronic music forms part of my background. I wanted to develop a project that had the voice at the forefront, a lot of harmonies, very rhythmic, nothing like Los Ángeles,” she said.”Catalina””Catalina” is the one single she released from Los Ángeles and gives you a taste of her sound on that album, with a somewhat more traditional take on flamenco, without electronic sounds. She describes her experimentation on the album as focused mainly on playing with the way the guitar is used, with both the sharp chords of the guitar and her piercing vocals shining through on this song, offering a sample of a slightly more “pure” flamenco version of Rosalía’s music.”That folklore is part of who I am, and that’s the key: I don’t want to lose my roots. I think that’s what gives you your identity,” Rosalía said. “Rather than trying to adhere to some kind of global pop standard, it’s much more interesting to look to my roots and to the popular music of where I’m from. Not now or ever will I put flamenco aside.”19th Latin GRAMMY Awards: 19 Things You Didn’t KnowRead more Why Rosalía Is A Rising Global Pop Star how-rosalia-reinventing-what-it-means-be-global-pop-star The 25-year-old is from Sant Esteve Sesrovires, a suburb of Barcelona in the Catalonia region in Spain. She began studying music since age 13, the same age she first fell in love with traditional Spanish flamenco music. She learned flamenco formally at the Taller de Músics in Barcelona, which only accepts one student a year, and received a degree from the Catalunya College of Music, where she developed the concept for her latest album as her graduate thesis.Music clearly runs through Rosalía’s veins, and her desire to perfect her art and make it her own is admirable. Reflecting on the first time she heard flamenco, “It was like getting pierced by an arrow—it was the purest thing I had ever heard,” feeling called to the sound and later realizing, as she told Pitchfork, “I have the power to communicate something, and I’d like to develop that. This is what I want to do with my life.”She co-produced both of her albums and released her debut, Los Ángeles, on Feb. 10, 2017, when the buzz began, even resulting in a nomination for Best New Artist at the 2017 Latin GRAMMY Awards. On May 29 she released the lead single “Malamente” for her sophomore album El Mal Querer, which just dropped on Nov. 2, and the excitement around Rosalía has only continued to build, in Spain and far beyond.This year she is in the running for five Latin GRAMMYs, the second-most nominated artist behind reggaeton king J Balvin, even though nominations went out before her second album was released, with just its lead single eligible for consideration. Pointing to the record’s wide appeal, “Malamente” is up for Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Best Urban Fusion/Performance, Best Alternative Song and Best Short Form Music Video.

first_imgMirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir. File PhotoBNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Friday criticised the home minister for what he said issuing a threat to their party saying it was not his justified action before the announcement of the verdict on the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case, reports UNB.”We still didn’t get the verdict. So, we can’t legally and morally give reaction to a verdict before its announcement,” he said.The BNP leader further said, “The home minister on Friday talked about it but holding an important post he shouldn’t make such comment as the verdict is not yet pronounced. His comment has only exposed what the government is planning.”Fakhrul came up with the remarks while talking to reporters after visiting the residence of noted writer and novelist Shawkat Ali, who passed away on Thursday, at Tikatuli in the city.Earlier in the day, home minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said law enforcement agencies will take stern actions if any one tries to create chaos centring the verdict of the Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case.The home minister came up with the remarks replying to a question at a function organised on the occasion of the Metropolitan Family Day in the Dhakeshwari National Temple in Old Dhakaon Friday.The verdict of Zia Orphanage Trust graft case against BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia and her son Tarique Rahman is scheduled to be delivered on 8 February.Fakhrul alleged that the Zia Orphanage Trust case trial has been completed hurriedly as the government is determined to hold the next polls keeping BNP chief Khaleda Zia out of it.”Our leader’s lawyer has repeatedly been saying that justice hurried is justice buried but the government is not paying heed to it,” he added.The BNP leader alleged that the ruling party men are issuing threats to BNP though it has not yet announced any political programme.Fakhrul said even the prime minister and some ministers are making comments on the ongoing trial of the case.The BNP leader said the remarks of the ruling party men and its alliance leaders have demonstrated that they know about the verdict and they are prepared for everything.last_img read more

first_imgPakistani prime minister Imran Khan. Photo: ReutersPakistani prime minister Imran Khan vowed Tuesday to challenge at the UN security council India’s decision to strip Kashmir of its special autonomy, and demanded action from the international community as tensions soared between the nuclear-armed rivals.Khan gave a forceful rebuke of prime minister Narenda Modi’s decision Monday to scrap the special status granted to the Indian-ruled part of Kashmir from India’s constitution in front of a joint-session of parliament in Islamabad.“I want to make it clear that we will fight this issue on every forum, (including) at the UN security council,” said Khan, who also promised to also raise the issue with heads of state and take the matter to the International Criminal Court.Khan demanded action from the global community as he accused Modi of blatantly violating international law in pursuit of an anti-Muslim agenda in India.“If the world does not act today… (if) the developed world does not uphold its own laws, then things will go to a place that we will not be responsible for,” Khan added.The prime minister’s remarks came shortly after Pakistan’s military announced it “firmly stands” by Kashmiris following a meeting by the army’s top commanders in the garrison city of Rawalpindi to discuss the move by India, which is also set to exacerbate the long-running bloody rebellion in Kashmir.“Pakistan Army firmly stands by the Kashmiris in their just struggle to the very end. We are prepared and shall go to any extent to fulfil our obligations in this regard,” General Qamar Javed Bajwa said, in a tweet sent by a military spokesman after the meeting.Spokesman major general Asif Ghafoor said commanders “fully supported” the civilian government’s rejection of India’s move.“Pakistan never recognised the sham Indian efforts to legalise its occupation” of the disputed mountainous region, he added.On Tuesday, an estimated 500 people demonstrated in Muzaffarabad, the largest city in Pakistani-held Kashmir, with more protests expected in major cities across the country.Pakistani lawmakers also began a session of parliament to discuss a possible response to Delhi’s move.The breathtaking Himalayan region of Kashmir has been disputed by India and Pakistan since independence in 1947. They have fought two of their three wars over the former principality.Earlier this year they came close to war yet again, after a militant attack in Indian-held Kashmir in February was claimed by a group based in Pakistan, igniting tit-for-tat air strikes.For three decades the Indian-administered part has been in the grip of an insurgency that has left tens of thousands dead.Armed Kashmiri rebels and many residents have fought for the Muslim majority region’s independence or to join neighbour Pakistan.Ahead of the announcements, tens of thousands of extra Indian troops were deployed in the territory, and a security lockdown was imposed overnight Sunday. All telecommunications have been cut there since.Editorials and social media in Pakistan were buzzing Tuesday over Modi’s decision, with the English daily Dawn running a large headline on its front page reading: “New Delhi sheds fig leaf, robs held Kashmir of special status”.last_img read more

first_img Friday, December 16, 2016 TORONTO — In the 45 days prior to booking a trip, Canadians make 161 visits to travel sites, according to the 2016 Traveler’s Path to Purchase study by comScore.What’s more, Canadian consumers collectively spend 148 billion minutes per month interacting with digital content, and 70% of those people are consuming digital travel content.As shockingly high as those numbers are, Canada actually lags behind the UK and the U.S. for just about everything related to travel and technology. The growth rate for Canadian consumption of digital travel content is only 18%, compared to 44% in the UK and 41% in the U.S.And while Canadian travellers “are slowly shifting away from desktop-only usage at 36% in 2016 compared to 46% in 2015”, by and large Canadians spend many more minutes on their desktop computers and laptops than their smartphones and tablets.Simply put, when it comes to checking out travel sites online – whether it’s a travel review site, hotel and airline sites, an OTA or, ideally, the booking-friendly website of a traditional bricks-and-mortar travel agency – Canadian consumers still prefer using their desktop computers and laptops over iPhones or iPads. Going on the Internet and consuming online travel content via mobile devices – whether it’s on a smartphone or tablet – hasn’t caught on here quite as quickly as in the UK and the U.S. Growth is slow but steady.Which begs the question: do travel agencies here need to invest thousands of dollars in a mobile-friendly app that will enable clients to book with their bricks-and-mortar travel agency with a touch of their finger on their smartphones and tablets?Frederic de Pardieu doesn’t think travel agencies need a mobile app for bookings. And he’s in the travel app business. De Pardieu, CEO of Montreal-based mtrip (mtrip.com), says the best strategy for travel agencies is two-fold.For bookings, an agency should have a “responsive” website, that is, a website where the design works well with various screen sizes and can be adapted for mobile.The best time for an app, says de Pardieu, is in the post-booking stage.“Providing a native mobile app after the booking is the best way for agents to increase loyalty and generate revenue by engaging with the clients during the whole trip,” says de Pardieu.A native app is what most of us think of when it comes to apps. At Apple’s App Store, there’s an estimated two million apps available for download. Just about everything we do with our phones and tablets these days is via those colourful little app icons on our screens.Having a native mobile app for iOS and Android for the booking stage does not make sense, says de Pardieu. “Some have invested in a native app and the ROI is very weak.”More news:  Sunwing ready to launch Mazatlán-Quebec City direct this winterNot only that, but the cost of a native app built from scratch can cost anywhere from $50,000 to $200,000. A customizable white-label app customizable costs around $10,000 “however some small agencies share the same app for a very low starter cost”, says de Pardieu.At the post-booking stage, on the other hand, a mobile app makes sense, says de Pardieu. “On the post-booking stage, you continue engaging with the client by providing a mobile app which will be downloaded if you offer an added-value product (not only a list of bookings but helpful features like real-time flight alerts, flight check-in, offline maps and directions, offline travel guides). The agency will continue to own their client and increase loyalty.” A mobile website doesn’t fit the purpose on the post-booking side as it doesn’t work offline – it can’t be used abroad as nobody wants to pay roaming charges – plus features are limited and there’s not the same agency-client connection, he said.While the retail travel industry, like just about every other industry, is overwhelmed with the ‘Go Mobile or Die’ message and can be forgiven for throwing up its hands in overwhelmed exasperation at all the tech trends hitting the travel domain, competitors with very deep pockets are making strides.“Large travel brands are now focusing on a holistic approach of their mobile offering, which means engaging with their clients after the booking and during the whole trip,” says de Pardieu.Google launched Google Trips, he adds, a travel assistant which includes bookings, travel guides, maps “and they will soon let users book flights and accommodation”. Airbnb just launched its new app. “They want to become an OTA,” says de Pardieu.“This is a real threat for bricks-and-mortar travel agents as these players will draw more traffic from them. Travel agencies should definitively engage with their clients during the whole trip by providing a mobile travel assistant.”Jean Collette with Club Voyages Dumoulin, has a white-label version of mtrip’s post-booking app. “My mobile product is an app you find in Google Play and Apple’s App store,” says Collette. “It is free but in order to get the access codes you need to purchase a travel product or service from my agency. The app download mechanic works with my back office system. The minute an invoice is created the important information is transferred directly from my back office program to my app program, for example, name of client, email, dates, destination, itinerary, product or service description, etc.”Collette introduced his agency app this past summer and says he’s waiting for the winter travel season to see just how valuable the app is for his business. “[In terms of] ROI, it is too early; most of our clients will use the app over the winter. The strategy with the app is more for client retention than client acquisition.”More news:  War of words between Transat, Group Mach ramps upHis investment started with a set-up fee of $15,000 and a monthly fee of $1,500 based on 5,000 clients per year.Collette says his clients can do many things with the app “and the best things is the app works offline at destination. Clients can pre-register their flights, they get a complete travel guide of their destination, they get all the information on the shopping, dining, nightlife, tours and excursions, monetary device converter, the weather, it has a geo-localization navigator, AR (augmented reality) features, they can book, flight, cars, hotels, trips and excursions and city tours.”He adds “we have a website but we were not present in smartphones. Now we are and I believe it is a strong way to stay connected with our clients.”One popular post-booking app, from Umapped, was picked up by TPI. This fall TPI announced it had joined forces with the Canadian travel tech start-up to provide TPI clients with an interactive mobile itinerary with real-time messaging and content that extends to the client’s personal and social networks.Meanwhile TPI’s Internet booking search engine is mobile-friendly and both TPI advisors and clients have access to this tool and can book travel through this tool via their desktop PC or mobile device. TPI plans to add a cruise booking engine to this tool in the near future. “Our goal at TPI is to provide our advisors with the tools they need to focus on the customer,” said TPI VP, Tim Morgan.Softvoyage’s VP Sales & Marketing, Dan Langevin, says Softvoyage is seeing a huge uptake on its various platforms being accessed via mobile technology. Canada’s slow-growth mobile stats, at least when it comes to travel, could be because “Canadians are still very much using travel agents to book.”That said, the mobile usage curve is definitely trending up: “more and more shopping is being done using various platforms which includes mobile.” << Previous PostNext Post >> Posted by Share Kathryn Folliott About Latest Posts Kathryn FolliottEditor at TravelweekKathryn is Editor at Travelweek and has worked for the company since 1995.
