Since 2018 the agency’s share price has plummeted from £3.14p to its current 42p, losing Axel Springer millions of pounds on paper.“On behalf of the Board I would like to thank Andreas for his expertise and continued support of our innovative business model during his time on thePurplebricks Board. We wish him the very best for his future endeavours,” says Paul Pindar, Chairman of Purplebricks.Weile says he is quitting Axel Springer after 20 years to become an entrepreneur and digital business investor. Purplebricks Andreas Wiele axel springer June 29, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

A backdrop on Islam in America

first_imgAmerican leaders who criticize the proposed Islamic community center in lower Manhattan are not only shamelessly exploiting American fears about Islam for political gain, but are fruitlessly flailing against a new demographic reality, said Ali Asani, professor of Indo-Muslim and Islamic religion and cultures at Harvard.Asani was among the participants at a packed teach-in on Tuesday (Sept. 21) in Boylston Hall that explored why the proposed center has become such a national controversy.“There are certain groups that are unable to come to terms with the reality that 21st century America is culturally, religiously, and ethnically the most diverse country in the world,” Asani said. “Groups that are threatened by this diversity have consistently portrayed Muslims as ‘the other.’ ”Sponsored by a tapestry of organizations — including the Pluralism Project, the Center for Middle Eastern Studies, and the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Islamic Studies Program —the teach-in tried to put the mosque controversy into historical context.Characterizing a particular religion or ethnic group as a threatening “other” is not new to American history, participants said. There have been similar movements against Catholics, Jews, Mormons, Chinese, and immigrants at various points in American life, noted Diana Eck, professor of comparative religion and Indian studies at Harvard Divinity School. As the Muslim-American community grows and its mosques become more visible, the nation’s Muslims, likewise, have encountered similar “anti” forces, she said.Opposition to American mosques also pre-dates the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Eck said the Pluralism Project has recorded incidents of arson and vandalism against mosques since 1991.But what was once expressed as veiled concerns about noise, traffic, or zoning is now being “overtly expressed” as outright opposition to Islam, she said. Various groups are now reaping publicity by attacking the idea of building near Ground Zero, while organizations supporting the Islamic center project have been ignored by the media, Eck said.“One has to really ask the question: How is it that the media responds so quickly to those who want to see this as placing a ‘victory mosque’ on top of ruins of Ground Zero?” Eck asked.Moreover, Asani said, the media’s reliance on “angry, bearded old men and hijabi women” as representative of “authentic” Islam presents a distorted viewpoint. “In the attempt to represent the Muslim as ‘the other,’ you don’t see any reference to [how] the Muslim presence in the United States actually pre-dates the creation of the United States,” he said. “There is a whole history that has been totally ignored or denied.”From a legal standpoint, there is little doubt that proponents of the Islamic center have a right to build the facility, said Mark Tushnet, the William Nelson Cromwell Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, even if something he dubbed the “heckler’s veto” might be employed. That is, proponents have a right to build the facility but opponents may be entitled to fight the location as inappropriate.Why are anti-Islamic sentiments being voiced now, nearly a decade after the Sept. 11 attacks?  “I frankly think this is due to American politics and the upcoming midterm election and the attempt by certain political groups to take control of Congress,” Asani said. The language of some U.S. politicians often parallels “word for word” the anti-Muslim rhetoric of fundamentalist politicians in India, he said.During a question-and-answer period, Fariba Parsa, a visiting postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Middle Eastern Studies, wondered whether educating Americans about Islam would have any real effect.Asani said that religious “illiteracy” was a global problem, not just in the United States, and that there is widespread ignorance about Western culture and religion in Muslim societies.What is most ominous is “not the clash of civilizations, but the clash of ignorance,” he said.last_img read more

New members of the American Academy Arts & Sciences announced

first_imgThe American Academy of Arts & Sciences was founded in 1780 by John Adams, John Hancock, and others who believed the new republic should honor exceptionally accomplished individuals and engage them in advancing the public good.Nearly two and a half centuries later, the Academy continues to dedicate itself to recognizing excellence and relying on expertise — both of which seem more important than ever.Today, the Academy announced its newest members with the election of 276 artists, scholars, scientists, and leaders in the public, non-profit, and private sectors. Current members represent today’s innovative thinkers in every field and profession, including more than 250 Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winners.“The members of the class of 2020 have excelled in laboratories and lecture halls, they have amazed on concert stages and in surgical suites, and they have led in board rooms and courtrooms,” said Academy President David W.

Spiders

first_imgBy Nancy HinkleUniversity of GeorgiaFrom big, fat barn spiders to their yellow garden cousins, between now and Halloween we will be seeing more spiders around our yards. The first hard frost will kill them, but now they are mating and producing egg sacs that will overwinter and re-establish the population next spring. The most commonly seen ones are orb-weaver spiders with large webs.Barn spiders (Araneus cavaticus) can be found on porches, where flying insects attracted to porch lights get trapped in their webs. These spiders are nocturnal, constructing a new web every evening and taking it down before dawn. This rusty brown spider has legs extending about 2 inches, making it look large and noticeable. These spiders hide during the day, but at night are found in the middle of the web, waiting for insects to be trapped. The yellow garden spider (Argiope aurantia) is one of the longest spiders in Georgia. It is frequently found in gardens and around shrubbery, where it constructs large webs to trap flying insects. The abdomen has distinctive yellow and black markings while the front part of the body, the cephalothorax, is white. The female typically remains in one spot throughout her life, repairing and reconstructing her web as it is damaged and ages. Her web may have a distinctive zigzag of silk through the middle, explaining its other common name, “writing spider.” Unlike the nocturnal barn spider, the yellow garden spider can be found in its web anytime. Sometimes a smaller spider will be found in the web with her; this is the male.These spiders have been present all summer, eating pest insects and growing. By late summer, they are large enough that people start noticing them. Georgia has more than 800 species of spiders, all of which are harmless if you leave them alone. All spiders are more afraid of you than you are of them.

Update from Appalachian Riverboard Company

first_imgHi from Appalachian Riverboard Company, We’re both a riverboard guide service and riverboard manufacturing company in western NC. While we were still closed for the season due to temperature and scheduled river releases, we have already seen the postponement of one gear show and know that the whitewater industry is facing some delays in beginning commercial operations this year due to social distancing. Our owner is doing their best to take it in stride by plugging away at their day job in home energy efficiency and also using the delays to refine our board building process to bring another batch of riverboards to market. Thank you for supporting the outdoors and beginning the #outsidewethrive movement. center_img Kevin Yount,Appalachian Riverboard Company – owner, designer, trainer, guidelast_img read more

Emerging leader thrives on challenges

first_imgRachel Guyselman has advice for young credit union professionals who enjoy presenting ideas to their managers: Don’t take feedback personally.The vice president of operations at $73 million asset Tongass Federal Credit Union in Ketchikan, Alaska, often must reshape her initial proposals based on comments from her supportive CEO, Helen Mickel.“Rather than thinking, ‘I’ve been shut down,’ I think, ‘OK, this is just a detour, not a dead end,’” Guyselman tells CUNA News Podcast. “I need to rethink it, absorb that feedback, and come at it from a different angle. If you still believe in your initial thought logically and knowledgeably, present your point.”Guyselman, 30, is the first recipient of the CUNA Emerging Leader Award, to be presented Dec. 4 at the inaugural CUNA Emerging Leader Institute in San Diego. 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »last_img read more
