A worker prepares for the Art of Banksy exhibit at

first_img A worker prepares for the Art of Banksy exhibit at 213 Sterling Road in Toronto on Monday, June 11, 2018. THE CANADIAN PRESS/ Tijana Martin. by Cassandra Szklarski, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 12, 2018 11:31 am PDT Last Updated Jun 12, 2018 at 12:20 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – The largest collection of art by the mysterious street artist Banksy gets a splashy North American premiere this week with an unauthorized look at his rise from underground subversive to hip media darling.Curator and former manager Steve Lazarides says he expects “The Art of Banksy” to attract Banksy fans from all walks of life, even the societal elite that the urban artist is wont to target with his politically charged stencils.“It’s weird, the establishment seem to love it,” Lazarides says of the artist’s unabashed mission to provoke with colourful, often humorous, images.“He’s always had that kind of broad church of supporters anyway, from the very beginning. It was a very wide spread of people, it wasn’t just graphic designers in backpacks that were liking his work in the beginning.”There will be a wide array of pieces to take in, he adds, pointing to sculpture, screen prints, canvases and multimedia pieces that have been installed in a sprawling former factory space west of the downtown core.All were created for display or sale, he adds, expressing a “pathological hatred” for collectors who remove Banksy’s street pieces for private buyers.Nevertheless, he admits that Banksy hasn’t endorsed the exhibit, but he believes that’s allowed for an objective overview of his former pal’s oeuvre.“To be honest this isn’t a Banksy exhibition, it is an exhibition of Banksy’s art and I think there’s a big difference between the two,” says Lazarides, who says he hasn’t spoken to the artist in a decade.Several works come from Banksy’s “Barely Legal” show in Los Angeles in 2006, and a retrospective held in Bristol, England in 2008.Other pieces are on loan from private collectors, including three from a former Toronto resident who now lives in Hong Kong, says Michel Boersma, Live Nation’s senior vice president of family entertainment & theatre.That collector shared two versions of Banksy’s famed “Balloon Girl,” in which a young girl is seen letting go of a red heart-shaped balloon, he says.Boersma is looking forward to showing the 7.5-metre tall “Forgive Us Our Trespassing,” which he says hasn’t been seen in a decade. Another highlight is a stencil on a garage door shutter, which he says is the only piece of street art Banksy has acknowledged because it was done on a friend’s garage as a gift.After taking the tour to Melbourne, Amsterdam, Tel Aviv and Auckland, Boersma considers Toronto a great place to launch a possible North American leg.“For me, it was a more interesting start than just go straight to a ‘New York.’ And I think it’s the right decision that we all took because the location is great … we have this beautiful old industrial venue where we’re now building a museum in,” says Boersma, whose company teamed with Starvox Exhibits for the tour.In addition to being the largest collection so far, he says the Toronto show adds videos and an audio guide, in which Lazarides shares stories about specific pieces.The duo met in 1997 when Lazarides was hired to take Banksy’s photograph. Both from Bristol and sharing mutual friends, they became fast friends with Lazarides soon accompanying Banksy to document his graffiti escapades. Eventually, he would help Banksy sell prints from the trunk of his car, and then launch a gallery show to fund more illicit exploits.One such outing produced a large image of a Queen’s guard on a West London wall, which Lazarides recalls Banksy painting in broad daylight.“There’s a whole crew of people (involved) so sometimes we’d close off a road, we’d park something in the way, there’s all sorts of different techniques employed over the years,” Lazarides says of how Banksy pulled off the stunt.“He always was bold as brass when he put his pieces up and got caught very, very few times. I think people (would) walk past and think it was somebody else’s problem. If it’s happening in the middle of the day I think people think it’s allowed to happen.”And although many of the images have been shared on social media, Lazarides insists that seeing them in person is different: “There’s a reason people queue up at the Louvre to see a picture of the Mona Lisa even though they can get a postcard of it in their local shop. Pictures have power.”The work is fun, pointed and tailor-made for a general audience, he adds.“They don’t feel like they need an art degree to understand. This was art that was made for them, by one of them,” says Lazarides.“It’s a fairly simplistic, political message that everybody can get, and I think it provokes conversation and now in the age of social media, things get spread around so quickly that that’s what’s made him a global star.”As for Banksy’s identity, Lazarides doesn’t expect him to ever reveal it. Even if he went public, he doubts anyone would believe him.“I said to him years ago that he should out himself because no one would believe it,” he says. “I think people are expecting, like, Brad Pitt on a white horse coming through and taking on ISIS single-handedly (but) Banksy’s just a regular Joe.”“The Art of Banksy” runs Wednesday to July 11.center_img Banksy exhibit caters to broad following: ‘Art that was made for them, by one of them’last_img read more

Man jailed for nude photo blackmail

first_imgThe Larnaca criminal court on Wednesday jailed a 37-year-old man for three years after he was found guilty of blackmailing and spreading nude photographs of a 33-year-old Larnaca resident.The case took place between August and September 2017, when the defendant, through a fake profile on Facebook, promised to pay for nude photographs of a 33-year-old woman, who had told him she was in desperate need of moneyInstead of giving her the promised amounts, the defendant demanded €600, blackmailing her that if she did not hand over the amount, he would make public the nude photographs and would notify her family and village, damaging her reputation.In its ruling during the closed-door hearing on Wednesday, the criminal court said that the 37-year-old also sent a threatening message to the woman’s brother, claiming that he would send the photographs to his co-workers, his in-laws, and to the residents of his village.Finally, after a month of threatening messages, the 37-year-old sent the photographs of the 33-year-old to her brother, her brother’s wife, and to one friend of hers.Following the leak, the 33-year-old filed a complaint with the police.According to the court’s ruling, “the defendant did not use physical violence, nor did he threaten the use of violence against the complainant, which was taken into account as a mitigating factor in the imposition of the penalty.”However, the court continued, the psychological violence that was caused for an entire month, created a state of terror for the complainant and could not be ignored.“The widespread use of the internet and social media by unsuspecting people creates potential victims of such criminal behaviour,” the court said. “The deterrence and severe punishment of such criminal behaviour should therefore be imperative.”  You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoSub Compact SUVs | Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.

against Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan as ‘withdrawn’ The apex court also observed orally that election should be fought outside the court and not in the courtroomFile photo of Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan PTI “The Supreme Court today dismissed the petition filed by KK Mishra as withdrawn The Madhya Pradesh High Court on 29 January had dismissed the review petition on theground that sanction from competent authority wasn’t obtained by the petitioner as it was against the CM (Shivraj Singh Chouhan) who’s a public servant The HC had also observed that a similar complaint was discussed earlier and after three years the petitioner (KK Mishra) again brought it Therefore the SC today didn’t want to intervene with the HC order” advocate Vanshaja Shukla who appeared before the Supreme Court along with senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi told Firstpost Rohatgi and Shukla represented Chouhan on Thursday during the hearing before the Supreme Court bench comprising Justices AK Sikri and Ashok Bhushan “Justice Sikri observed orally to senior Congress leader and senior advocate Kapil Sibal that election is round the corner and they (Congress party) should fight election outside the court and not in the courtroom It was not recorded but was in response to senior advocate Mukul Rohtagi’s plea that the said case is politically motivated” said advocate Shukla The alleged dumper scam against Chouhan is one of the major issues like the Vyapam scam that the Opposition Congress has been using as a weapon to attack the BJP government in Madhya Pradesh alleging corruption The dumper scam Bhopal-based Congress leader and a lawyer by profession Mishra had alleged that Chouhan after becoming the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh in November 2005 doled out favours to an industrial group — Jaypee Associates in Rewa He had moved court alleging that thechief minister misused his official position and rented out dumper trucks to the said group as quid pro quo for allocation of out-of-the-turn mining leases The complainant had also alleged that four dumpers worth Rs 2 crore were registered in the name of Chouhan’s wife Sadhna Singh An FIR was registered against Chouhan his wife an IAS officer and others in November 2007 regarding thepurchase of dumpers The Lokayukta had investigated the case and found that no offence was committed A closure report was filed by the Lokayukta police In January this year the Madhya Pradesh High Court dismissed a review petition filed by Mishra challenging Bhopal district court’s judgment (28 October 2017) that had dismissed his previous petition seeking reinvestigation into the alleged dumper scam The ground of dismissal of review petition was the absence of sanction in the case A sanction is required from a competent authority for theprosecution against a person holding public office (or a public servant) In the case of the chief minister the competent authority is the governor The alleged dumper scam snowballed into a major controversy in the state and Assembly proceedings were disrupted for days when the issue became public Congress’ stand The Opposition Congress in Madhya Pradesh that pursued the case for almost a decade is up in arms against Shivraj Singh government and wants to use it as a ‘major case of corruption’ during its upcoming Assembly election campaign Senior Congress leader and senior advocates Sibal Vivek Tankha and others represented Mishra at the Supreme Court “SC wasn’t inclined to hear the petition as the apex court sought a sanction from thecompetent authority in this case As the petition is against Madhya Pradesh chief minister a sanction is needed This only means more delay as they (Madhya Pradesh chief minister and others) have gained two months and by thentheAssembly election will take place But we’ll continue with our fight against this scam” senior advocate and Rajya Sabha member from Congress Tankha told Firstpost “I’m told that our senior leader Kapil Sibalji who’s also a senior advocate and representing this case along with Vivek Tankhaji and others withdrew the case on technical grounds It has not been rejected After discussion with our lawyers and leaders we may file a fresh petition afresh” said Mishra and doctors told her she was unlikely to ever walk again. most OSCE countries are failing to

not be a top-of-the-list holiday destination for an Indian hockey player They visit these countries routinely to play at some of the prettiest stadiums in beautiful postcard towns Although they spend most of their time shuttling between the stadium and hotel the Indian team is fun-loving and adventurous enough to explore the cities they travel to rather than restricting themselves to the hotel all the time They also love to shop this bunch Which is what Sardar Singh did during the off-season last year The senior team players had a 40-day off towards the end of 2016 It’s the longest vacation they’ve received in a long time So Sardar hopped on a flight to Germany and Holland spending a good three weeks there shopping and eating “Hockey se hatke chahiye tha The weather there is good khana-peena diet…everything And quite some shopping too” Sardar says “Also gym sessions I had around 10-15 gym sessions” As Sardar roamed around the streets of Berlin and Amsterdam Indian hockey turned a corner in Lucknow The juniors won the World Cup And that put the spots of several seniors in doubt Sardar suddenly found himself competing for in the core probables – which gather in Bangalore next month – with the players who he has mentored In this context the Hockey India League (HIL) became an extremely important tournament not just for Sardar but several Indian players who are either clutching on to their spots or those eager to break into the team But the focus has firmly been on Sardar Against UP Wizards at the Shivaji Stadium on Monday the former India captain and the current Punjab skipper showed glimpses of his old self Mid-way through the first quarter he picked up the ball near the 25-yard line in UP’s half and weaved past three defenders before hitting it inches wide from the goal It was mesmerizing the way his body swayed and the use of his wrist to dodge the ball past the players The kind of stuff he did routinely a couple of years back But age has caught on Thirty might not seem very old but India’s playing style has changed and the emergence of young players who fly on the field has put added pressure on Sardar who has lost a yard of pace Consequently his influence in the Indian team as well as with Punjab in HIL has been on the wane After those few moments early in the match Sardar struggled to make an impact on the game which Punjab had to win by a huge margin to earn bonus points and stay alive in the league Punjab won 1-0 but that wasn’t enough to keep them alive in the league Unable to influence the game Sardar was increasingly getting frustrated which resulted in him receiving a green card in the 33rd minute This is another aspect of his game that has changed over the years For the longest time Sardar was the cleanest Indian player on the pitch – the one who never lost his cool made a rash tackle or sent to the sin bin But in an interview recently he admitted that whenever he ‘carried whatever is happening outside the ground to the field’ he got cards Over the last one year there’s been a lot going on off the field with Sardar The year 2016 was when his place in the national team was in genuine doubt for the first time in a decade A court case involving his ex-girlfriend made matters worse and a mediocre year went worse after he was stripped off the captaincy before the Olympics The time away in Germany and Holland Sardar said would help rejuvenate him The HIL has been a mixed bag for him Punjab’s Australian coach Barry Dancer calls him a ‘leader competitor and a player who has the desire to make impact on the team’ It’s this reputation which will ensure his place in the core probables will still stay safe For how long though remains a question For all the latest Sports News download

committing suicide three months after Thane-based builder Suraj Parmar shot himself blaming “harassment” by politicians and corporators in his suicide note it had led to speculation if Bhatia too took the extreme step due to the same reason Kalyan GRP senior inspector S Rane said Wednesday they had recorded the statement of the managing director of Mohan Group where Bhatia was one of the 16 directors The MD told the police that work was distributed among the 16 directors and Bhatia was not in charge of coordinating with government agencies to get permissions His job was just to look after the construction work of a building project in Kalyan “As per the statement of his superior and colleagues there does not appear to be anything on the work front that was bothering Bhatia” Rane said The police will now be registering the statements of the immediate family members of Bhatia The police recorded the statement of Bhatia’s maternal uncle to whom the builder had sent a message minutes before allegedly taking the extreme step The message read that he was going to commit suicide and that his uncle should take care of his wife and 10-year-old son In his statement the uncle said he was not aware about any reason that would have pushed Bhatia to suicide Bhatia’s body was found by his family members who had been looking out for him since Saturday evening Bhatia had parked

unwanted reputation of being perennial chasers of a match Often the last few minutes of the game would be used to chase after the ball—and when in possession slap it inside the circle and hope a striker would receive it Against the Uttar Pradesh Wizards at the MHA Stadium on Tuesday evening they were at it again The Mumbai franchise was trailing 2-3 in the last minute of play courtesy of penalty corner goal they conceded just moments earlier Chaotic shuffling ensued yet again Until the ball reached Gurmail Singh With 26 seconds left to play the India international noticed a gap in the Wizards’ defence that had otherwise been well organised From the edge of the circle on the right flank Gurmail pushed a meticulously measured pass across goal that Dutch midfielder Robbert Kemperman stood poised to slot home unmarked The HIL-specific field goal rule put Mumbai 4-3 up There was no time for the Wizards to recover In Kemperman’s split moment of skill— he charged from the 25-yard line to be in position to receive Gurmail’s pass— Dabang Mumbai found a winning goal But in Harmanpreet Singh’s two successful drag-flicks the hosts found a way to make sure the Wizards didn’t run away with the match Harmanpreet is usually the first to break away from a pre-penalty corner huddle He’s pretty clear what he wants to do and where he wants to attack Standing in front of him protected by the equipment required for goalkeepers was PR Sreejesh The 21-year-old knew his opponent well – the pair trains together in the senior camp and travelled to the Rio Olympics as well “In practice I haven’t really scored past him though” he chuckles Over the years drag-flickers have come under a great deal of scrutiny especially from goalkeepers The likes of Jaap Stockmann Nicolas Jacobi and even Sreejesh have spent hours studying the trends specific to each penalty-corner specialist “Because of that the onus is always on the drag-flicker to come up with something new and different” Harmanpreet says On the night he powered two drag-flicks – one to Sreejesh’s left and the second into the roof of the net – to bring Mumbai level after Agustin Mazzilli scored a field-goal in the first quarter to put the visitors into the lead His skills in turn go well beyond just his drag-flicking The defender is a workhorse who has steadily perfected his tackling skills It has earned him a reputation of being one of the most dependable players in the Indian team – both senior and junior Just a month ago Harmanpreet marshalled the Indian defence throwing his stick to arrest attackers through timely challenges and scoring the odd penalty-corner goal in India’s victorious junior World Cup run He did the same at Rio for the Indian team“He’s a very good player but he has some way to go to be a world class player” says Dabang Mumbai coach Jay Stacy “But he’s on the right track He’s grown as a man and a player since I saw him last year” Three years ago the

contributes to 60 per cent of GDP This is expected to rise to 75 per cent in the next 15 years This is precisely why the cities are being referred to as the engines of economic growth If the engines of economic growth have to run with optimal efficiency there are two imperatives one they have to be smart and two they should have again optimal economic activity which alone will achieve economic growth There are different definitions of smart cities and the original one is more about technology adoption for efficient and effective governance to ensure quality services to the citizens In Indian context the basic infrastructure being ghastly inadequate and underdeveloped our definition of smart cities starts with basic infrastructure development and probably ends with the adoption of technology to ensure quality services and governance In this context of economic growth smart cities are those that are able to attract investments Investment will get attracted if they offer good infrastructure simple and transparent online processes that make it easy to establish an enterprise and run it efficiently These are probably important features of an investor-friendly city It is very clear without this a city loses attraction as an investment destination Smart cities are those which have smart (intelligent) physical social institutional and economic infrastructure Quality of life employment investment opportunities define the competitiveness of a city and probably the degree of competitiveness decides the smartness of the city Competitiveness in this context refers to a city’s ability to create employment opportunities attract investments and people The ease of being able to do business and the quality of life it offers determines its competitiveness Quality of life includes safety and security inclusiveness entertainment ease of seeking and obtaining public services cost efficient healthcare quality education and opportunities for participation in governance Unfortunately in many of our cities though they contribute substantially to the revenue of the city the industry does not have participation in governance The expertise and the experience the industrial segment has undoubtedly will contribute to the quality governance and services As the participation of industry through PPP vehicle in the creation and subsequent management of a smart city is an imperative for the successful sustainability of the smart city so is its involvement in governance A smart city in order to make itself a destination for global investment and to create the appropriate economic infrastructure for attracting such investment as also creating employment opportunities has to first identify its core comparative advantages the planning allied development will follow this identification This offers holistic growth Greater institutional integration offers ease of doing business and in smart city this being important becomes yet another important imperative We today experience the inefficiencies and operational difficulties due to absence of it A smart city needs reliable adequate high quality utility services which also includes recycling of water which assumes greater importance today If cities are to be efficient engines of economic growth it is important that goods are able to move from production canters to consumption centres at low cost and high speed Therefore a good freight movement system acquires importance from the Industrial perspective Seoul Singapore Yokohoma are all smart cities and highly industrialised centres too Could they

NewsBy: AP | London | Published: November 18 2016 9:48 am Wayne Rooney’s future as captain is already under scrutiny (Source: Reuters) Top News Wayne Rooney faced a highly unusual public rebuke from the England leadership on Thursday over his late-night revelry at the team hotel The English Football Association believes Rooney wasn’t living up to his responsibilities as captain of the national team after being pictured on Saturday night bleary-eyed at a wedding reception at the hotel Rooney’s future as captain was already under scrutiny as he was no longer guaranteed of his starting spot for England or Manchester United India vs England Live Score Although the 31-year-old striker was off-duty at the time of the hotel incident the FA’s unhappiness with the conduct of the team’s figurehead could harm his prospects of retaining the armband “It’s disappointing” FA chief executive Martin Glenn said outside a meeting of Premier League team executives in London “It’s appropriate that he apologized because it doesn’t set a great tone for the England captain” Glenn said he doesn’t want to “over-dramatize” the incident but it will lead to new rules for players about how they can spend nights off while away with England The FA is also investigating whether members of the England backroom staff were with Rooney when he dropped in on a wedding reception at the team hotel north of London “Why on earth you would be doing that given there is an understanding a team agreement around alcohol consumption during camp” Glenn said “So there would be questions asked for sure” The incident on the day after Friday’s win over Scotland is a blot on Rooney’s character after the United captain was thought to have curbed his previously erratic behavior on and off the field It has sparked a fresh wave of negative publicity for England in a year that saw the team eliminated from the European Championship in the round of 16 and Sam Allardyce forced out of the manager’s job for unguarded comments to undercover reporters posing as businessmen Rooney was quick to apologize in public and privately to England interim manager Gareth Southgate who is waiting to discover whether he will be handed the job permanently Southgate previously said Rooney missed Tuesday’s friendly with Spain through injury rather than as punishment for his late-night antics Rooney who began his career at Everton received backing from an unlikely source: Liverpool “These boys this generation is the most professional generation of footballers –not only in England but (the) England (team) too that there has ever been” Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said “All the legends we love and admire they drank like devils and smoked like crazy but they were still good players No one does it any more I don’t know anyone now “We had a Christmas party and I had to fill people’s glasses It’s about timing When you are in the wrong time at the wrong place it’s not good as a professional I have no idea where Wayne was but I’m pretty sure it’s not really serious” Rooney’s trouble stemmed from the fact he posed for pictures wearing his England training gear in the early hours to please fans attending the wedding Those images were then handed to The Sun newspaper which splashed them across the front page England’s well-paid stars have also been criticized for living closeted lives away from fans
