How The Draft Lottery Reshaped The NBA Landscape

natesilver: I mean, that’s how the system is supposed to work, right?neil: Well, I’ve always thought these tanking teams underestimated the luck involved in the lottery. Even under the old system.chris.herring: Last night’s outcome was probably about as solid as you could hope for from the league’s perspective if that’s the message you wanted to send. That being awful gives you a better chance but by no means guarantees you the very best — or even second-best — pick.tchow: Big win for Mr. Silver. (Adam, not Nate.)natesilver: And it’s not like the Knicks were categorically different than the Cavs, Suns or Bulls. They were just better at tanking. No. 3 is a comparatively good result vs. the rest of that group.BTW, someone should check the lottery ball codes to see what the results would have been under last year’s system.neil: Yeah, it’s weird to think of the Knicks as “winners” last night. But things could have been worse.chris.herring: The Knicks were the only team with the best lottery odds that didn’t fall out of the top four!natesilver: I really don’t get the losers talk, and I think it goes to show how people’s intuitions about probability aren’t very good.tchow: 14 percent means 100 percent, Nate!natesilver: People were treating it like 60 percent or something, I swear.neil: Knick fans’ expectations are always out of whack with reality, though… (This is a franchise that wins like the Mets but acts like it has the pedigree of the Yankees.)tchow: Neil, this is an NBA chat.chris.herring: I’m on record saying that I feel like the average Knick fan expects bad things to happen.neil: Maybe it’s more the New York media than rank-and-file fans, Chris.natesilver: This does leave open at least the tantalizing possibility of trading for Anthony Davis. If the Knicks do want to make a play for AD, this is one of the better scenarios for them. There’s no one who can trade Zion to the Pels since they already have him! The No. 3 pick is probably comparable to the best single asset that the Celtics and Lakers can offer. And if the Knicks get Kyrie Irving, maybe the Celtics don’t even try to get AD anyway.The Lakers do have the No. 4 pick, but at least based on the scouting consensus, there’s a big drop-off between 3 and 4. We’ll see if the Pelicans agree with that or not.chris.herring: I honestly don’t have a sense of what the Pelicans would prefer at this point.The Celtics would obviously be in play, based on their young talent and the draft picks they have. The Knicks just got the No. 3 pick and have two picks they got from Dallas in the Porzingis trade. Though those picks could end up being lower-end ones, depending on how the Mavericks are in the future. And then there are the Lakers, who just landed the No. 4 pick, plus all the guys they reportedly offered in February for Davis already.So it’s a combination of which players the Pelicans like, plus how they value the notion of future picks that would likely be lower in the draft, as opposed to higher ones they could make use of right now.natesilver: 🔥 Fun hot take: RJ Barrett could be the new Carmelo Anthony. High-volume, medium efficiency, good rebounder, mediocre effort on defense despite good athleticism. 🔥tchow: Looking at the different mock drafts, it does seem like there is a consensus on Top 3 (Zion, Ja, RJ in that order) and the fourth pick is immediately where you start seeing disagreements.neil: Which I think speaks to how few truly elite picks are in this draft class, Tony.chris.herring: Totally agreed.neil: But the Lakers can’t complain too much. They only had the 11th-best odds going on, so even moving up to fourth in a three-star draft is something.chris.herring: On Tuesday I walked past Gar Forman, from the Bulls’ front office, and he had a pretty grim look on his face after the team finished No. 7. Thought it was noteworthy that the Bulls’ John Paxson all but acknowledged that with a pick that low, the team was more likely to trade for a veteran as opposed to making it work with a rookie.It’s far more of a crapshoot outside of the Top 3.natesilver: We do know that the Pelicans didn’t like the Lakers’ pu pu platter back in February. And that was before Brandon Ingram’s DVT diagnosis. Although also before David Griffin took over, so maybe not as relevant now.chris.herring: There are a lot of options now for New Orleans. A lot of people were wondering out loud, too, whether getting Williamson might make the Pelicans more likely to find a deal for point guard Jrue Holiday, who could help a ton of teams as well.tchow: Chris, Paxson also had another pretty optimistic outlook on the results that I hadn’t thought of last night: neil (Neil Paine, senior sportswriter): So we just witnessed what our friend Zach Lowe called the “wildest lottery ever.” The Zion-Williamson-to-the-Knicks (or its less-heralded cousin, Zion-to-the-Lakers) hype train gained a ton of steam when both teams were revealed to be in the Top 4 … and then it crashed and burned on live TV as the Lakers ended up at No. 4 and the Knicks at No. 3.Guys, take me through each of your experiences and emotions as you saw what unfolded.chris.herring (Chris Herring, senior sportswriter): I think we saw right away how crazy this new lottery system has the potential to be. By flattening out the worst teams’ odds of winning, you get a higher probability of something like last night playing out. It was insane at the actual lottery here in Chicago. There were these enormous gasps when they announced that the Bulls were going to pick seventh, the Suns were going to pick sixth, and the Cavs were going to choose fifth.natesilver (Nate Silver, editor in chief): I was at a fairly nice Italian restaurant with a friend who doesn’t really like basketball, and I made him pull out his phone along with my phone just so we could see who had the faster livestream. Unfortunately, this restaurant had a lot of wood paneling or something that was causing the signal to be pretty weak. Anyway, the livestream cut out right when it looked like the Knicks might be shut out of the Top 4 entirely, then it came back on and they were in the Top 4, and then right after that they got the No. 3 pick. As dumb as it sounds, the experience of having my expectations lowered made the No. 3 pick seem a lot better as a quasi-Knicks fan.Also, we ordered pasta for dessert, which people should try.tchow (Tony Chow, video producer): My fingers and toes were crossed from the time Boston’s 14th pick was announced. I started jumping up and down on my couch and screaming sometime between Phoenix’s sixth pick reveal and Cleveland’s fifth. There was a moment during that window that I thought 14 percent really meant something like 98 percent, and I was ready to buy my Zion Knicks jersey.chris.herring: Hahahahaha. Brutal.neil: Our colleague Chad Matlin had a great experience as well that he granted me permission to share:“a small anecdote from brooklyn last night: I’m walking home from dinner down Flatbush Ave and a man appears half a block behind me and starts violently screaming something, but I can’t quite make out what. he keeps screaming. I only catch snippets. “FUCKING!!!” “ALL!!!” “LOSING!“”” this goes on for 90 seconds as he crosses street aimlessly, screaming the same thing over and over. I finally piece it together: “ALL THAT FUCKING LOSING FOR NOTHING!!”And that’s when I found out the Knicks didn’t win the lottery.”Suffice to say, emotions were running high here in New York.chris.herring: LMAOnatesilver: I had run the numbers beforehand, and the No. 3 pick — in a draft where there’s a clear drop-off between Nos. 3 and 4 — is slightly above the expected value for the Knicks pick. Even if you think Zion is going to be reaaaaaaaaaaaly good, a 14 percent chance just isn’t that high.chris.herring: On some level, the lottery process and unveiling is really, really challenging for the average person — even for me — to follow along with if you aren’t focused on a single team and where they’re ending up.tchow: Yeah, Chris, in the hysteria last night, the graphics on TV really played a trick on me: They had the Top 4 picks in individual blocks on top, while 5 through 14 were listed below as they were revealing the picks. As the blocks were getting filled in, you saw the Lakers, then the Grizzlies and then the Pelicans, and I went, “Holy shit, we got No. 1!”chris.herring: One team being slotted lower than you expect is useful information, but it’s hard to know exactly who it benefits until there are only two or three teams left.Rachel Nichols was explaining it in real time, but it still takes a hot second or two to register what it all means, because of the pick swaps and protections, etc.neil: It’s kind of incredible that so many of us devote time to watching the unveiling of the results of pingpong balls based on probabilities, which each have obscure caveats (protections, etc), and it actually makes for compelling TV. The NBA is amazing.natesilver: Maybe they should reveal it one pick per day at a time over the course of the playoffs, sort of like an advent calendar.Think of all the opportunities for #content.chris.herring: I’m still kind of shocked that New Orleans ended up getting it. Makes a huge difference for them going forward. All this time, analysts were suggesting that they make a deal with the team that wins the lottery for Anthony Davis. Now they have the No. 1 pick AND Anthony Davis.neil: And David Griffin said their big priority is convincing AD to stay now. Is that feasible?chris.herring: It doesn’t seem the most feasible to me. You’d love for him to change his tune on that, but reports suggest that he won’t. It’s incredibly risky to gamble on the hunch that he will.natesilver: I think Zion might make it more likely that AD is traded, if anythingBecause now the franchise has something to play for and sell hope/tickets for, even without AD. So any scenario where they’re just being super stubborn and desperate is probably off the table.chris.herring: You don’t know whether Zion alone would be enough for them to make a huge jump in the next year, which is what you’d need to feel better about letting Davis test free agency.natesilver: New Orleans was one of just three teams to win the lottery that was neither undeserving, nor boring, nor annoying. So that was a win in my book. neil: SO many people were looking at that!tchow: It must have meant something!neil: NBA conspiracies are the best.chris.herring: It seemed that might have been his preference.tchow: Can you imagine all the “it’s rigged” people if the Hawks did end up getting No. 1 after the logo double tap?chris.herring: Can’t remember too many people WANTING to go to Atlanta, but I actually hoped he’d end up there after that.neil: 😢tchow: Zion with Trae Young is really intriguing.But if we’re playing alternate universes and what-ifs, can we play “what if Zion did go to the Knicks?” Neil thinks owner James Dolan would have somehow messed it up anyway. I disagree.neil: Right, my take was always that he should be happy he didn’t go to the Knicks. Everything that franchise touches goes to ruin.tchow: But he could have changed that, Neil!chris.herring: ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski was reporting pretty adamantly that the Knicks wouldn’t have traded him. So it seems like they would have moved forward with him, and then gone into free agency shooting for the stars.natesilver: I think it would have been dumb to trade him. Like, more dumb than people realize. When you consider the contracts, and that the Pelicans don’t rally have much leverage, I think you can even argue that Zion straight up is TOO MUCH for AD, without all the other assets that the Knicks were likely to have to throw into the deal. But, anyway, I guess we don’t have to worry about that now.chris.herring: I agree. You’re going to want and need cost-controlled contracts for when you get other stars, anyway. Having Zion would allow you to do that.tchow: Is it wrong of me to think that this is even more proof that the lottery was rigged? Like, the results were so much the complete opposite of what you thought a “rigged” one would look like that it’s almost too opposite. Am I making sense? Like, the results seemed to be what someone would produce to prove that something wasn’t rigged when it actually was.natesilver: Tony I think you’re overthinking this just a liiiiiiiiiiiiittle bit.chris.herring: LOLneil: Of course, they did invite some of this rigging speculation by having Patrick “Frozen Envelope” Ewing there to represent the Knicks.chris.herring: As someone who’s been in the room, it’s not rigged. They go to great lengths to let people watch it. And make the actual process available on YouTube shortly after.I think the variance is going to be really wild going forward because of how they’ve flattened out the odds for the worst few teams, though. And honestly, it will make it more fun and heartbreaking.tchow: I know it’s not rigged. But……Just kiddingneil: But yeah Chris, I wanted to ask about that. Did we see the death of tanking last night?Look at how much the results at the top differed from the ranking in order of worst records: tchow: Nate, I disagree with so much of that Venn diagram.natesilver: Hahaneil: As an Atlantan who also once worked for the Hawks, I guess I’ll take “basically OK.”chris.herring: Neil, I’m sure die-hard Hawks fans were disappointed last night. Basketball people seem to universally feel that would’ve been his best fit.Did you all see the video of Williamson hitting the Hawks logo twice before the lottery began? chris.herring: Yeah, that quote infuriated Bulls fans here. It read like something out of The Onion.tchow: LOLneil: Do the Pels have more or less leverage in an AD trade now than they did at the deadline?natesilver: Weirdly, they have less, because there’s no one who can trade them Zion!chris.herring: Exactly. Likely less leverage but more flexibility in terms of the path they take, since they can feel pretty comfortable about building their future around him.natesilver: Are people too confident that Memphis will take Ja Morant and not RJ Barrett? They both have one glaring flaw (Morant: defense, Barrett: shooting), and historically, you’d rather go with the guy who can fix his shooting than a guy who is probably too undersized to ever be a great defender. Barrett’s also almost a year younger.Just to show how much a year can matter, compare Morant’s stats this year vs. last year: neil: And how does either affect where Mike Conley goes? They were shopping him pretty aggressively at the deadline but didn’t find the right deal.natesilver: I don’t think Memphis has any business keeping Conley either way.chris.herring: I’m interested in that question, too.natesilver: And I’m not sure it affects their pick much. If you want Ja, you can keep him and use Conley as a mentor if you want.chris.herring: Memphis is one of the smaller markets in the league, and because of that, I think they maybe hold on to players a year or two longer than they should. Perhaps because of the ties those fans feel to certain players.Morant is seemingly good enough where you draft him and then figure out the answer to that question with Conley later.natesilver: The Grizzlies have historically been a bit allergic to high-usage-rate guys, and both Barrett and Morant use a lot of possessions, so in some ways neither one feels like a natural Grizzly.chris.herring: Morant is a great passer, too, though, and averaged a double-double with assists. So I’d hope they make an exception in this case.tchow: If I were the Grizzlies, I’d take RJ.chris.herring: Wow. Knick fans would love if you became the Grizzlies’ GM.natesilver: The thing that’s really hard to project with Barrett is his defense. A lot of the comparables are pretty unflattering because people want to typecast him as Andrew Wiggins 2.0, maybe just because they’re both Canadian. But Wiggins was thought of as a guy who was going to be a plus defender, and he’s been pretty darn terrible instead. If Barrett’s a good defender, though, you start getting into a whole different set of comps, more along the lines of Jimmy Butler (if he tamps down the usage rate a bit) or Victor Oladipo.neil: Just goes to show how much defense — which I think can go overlooked for prospects at times (and is difficult to predict out of college) — can really alter a player’s pro trajectory. This, from ESPN’s mock draft on Barrett, sounds like it’s ripped out of the Wiggins scouting report: “he wasn’t the defender his physical tools suggest he should have been.”chris.herring: In fairness, Morant’s defense isn’t all that great, either. That’s part of what makes the No. 1 pick so easy, among other things.natesilver: Barrett was a much better rebounder, which counts for something. A much better and more active passer. And he was using a ton of possessions, which sometimes yields lower effort on defense. And Duke played a very tough schedule.I don’t know. If Barrett had shot 38 percent from three instead of 31 percent, I think people would be talking about him and Williamson like it’s … I don’t know, the Kevin Durant/Greg Oden draft or something. And of course, you can’t just disregard the difference between 38 percent and 31 percent. But he’s a pretty spectacular prospect if he learns how to shoot.chris.herring: It’s so hard to tell in college. The shooting is somewhat predictive. But even if he had shot 38 percent this year, I think there would be room to ask whether it was completely real.I remember Justise Winslow shooting a pretty healthy percentage from out there during his lone year at Duke, but so many of the makes came with Jahlil Okafor being doubled in the post, which left Winslow wide-open a lot of the time. And then he initially struggled from three once he came into the league, which was what many folks predicted.natesilver: The low free-throw percentage is troubling for Barrett.Like, Jayson Tatum — a guy who’s been a much better 3-point shooter as a pro than people thought — shot free throws pretty darned well in college. Barrett didn’t.chris.herring: Completely agreed. That tends to have solid predictive value.neil: It’s also worth remembering that Barrett was actually the No. 1 prospect in that star-studded class going into their freshman seasons. But I’ve seen studies that indicate the weight given to even one year of college should far outweigh our priors for prospects coming out of high school.tchow: This chat is just becoming a conversation about how Duke players perform in the NBA.chris.herring: Seems fair to me: tchow: Out of RJ, Zion, Winslow and Tatum, who is the most likely to also believe the Earth is flat?natesilver: New Orleans is extremely flat, so I’m guessing it will be Zion after a few years.Check out our latest NBA predictions. read more

People warned to not drink too much this weekend as surge of

We see a lot of people presenting with injury or illness having had too much to drink and unfortunately that can put additional pressure on the system.“Our wish is for everyone to enjoy the weekend and we hope you won’t have to come and see us.“Unfortunately, as in previous years, we expect to see a significant number of patients presenting due to alcohol-related injuries and illness.We know that most of these cases could have been avoided so we are asking everyone to be mindful and if they are drinking alcohol to be aware of the dangers and consequences of too much alcohol.St Patrick’s weekend is a very busy time for the National Ambulance Service too. Martin Dunne, Director of the NAS, also encouraged people not to drink excessively.Dunne reminded people that just because they are brought to hospital in an ambulance, it does not mean they will be seen quicker at an ED.“Whilst we fully appreciate that this is a very special celebratory weekend in our national calendar and we appreciate that everyone will want to enjoy their weekend to its fullest, however we would appeal to everyone to do so in a safe and enjoyable way,” he said. The HSE also reminded people to never drink and drive, and for people on medication to consider the potential side effects of mixing it with alcohol.

Climat la Chine plaide à nouveau en faveur dune prolongation du protocole

first_imgClimat : la Chine plaide à nouveau en faveur d’une prolongation du protocole de KyotoLe 28 novembre prochain, s’ouvrira à Durban la troisième conférence des Nations Unies sur la lutte contre le réchauffement climatique. A une semaine de l’ouverture, la Chine, premier émetteur de gaz à effet de serre de la planète, a une nouvelle fois affirmé son intention de réclamer une prolongation du protocole de Kyoto. Ce mardi 22 novembre, à six jours de l’ouverture du sommet de Durban sur la lutte contre le réchauffement climatique, la Chine a réaffirmé sa volonté de voir cette conférence mener à une prolongation du protocole de Kyoto. Ce traité signé en décembre 1997, expirera en 2012. Or, il est le seul qui contraigne les pays riches à réduire leurs émissions, à l’exception des Etats-Unis, qui ne l’ont pas ratifié.À lire aussiQui est Greta Thunberg, proposée pour un prix Nobel à seulement 16 ans ?”Le programme de réduction d’émissions pour les pays développés dans la deuxième période d’engagement du protocole de Kyoto doit être décidé de façon claire le plus rapidement possible”, a insisté le principal responsable chinois des questions climatiques, Xie Zhenhua, lors d’une conférence de presse rapportée par l’AFP.Si la Chine est le premier pays émetteur de gaz à effet de serre du monde, devant les Etats-Unis, elle refuse de porter une responsabilité historique qui incombe selon elle principalement aux pays développés. Xie Zhenhua souhaite voir le sommet de Durban, qui s’achèvera le 9 décembre, confirmer le principe des “responsabilités communes mais différenciées”. Il affirme que la Chine “est prête à prendre des engagements adaptés à son stade de développement”, à condition que les pays les plus développés acceptent une seconde période d’engagement du protocole de Kyoto.Cette prolongation est réclamée par la plupart des pays émergents. Mais le Japon, la Russie, comme le Canada, s’opposent à la signature d’un traité qui n’engagerait pas tous les plus grands pollueurs de la planète. L’Union européenne, elle, se dit favorable à ce projet. Toutefois elle rappelle qu’elle n’est à l’origine que de 11% des émissions de GES mondiales.Le 23 novembre 2011 à 11:16 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Une araignée individualiste mais… partageuse quand il faut éviter les conflits

Nintendo Switch Lite Is Your Next Nintendo Handheld

first_imgStay on target When I went to check out Nintendo’s upcoming lineup a few weeks ago I joked “Y’all are releasing so many big games in the next three months it’s almost like you’re trying to promote a new piece of hardware.” From the end of June through September there’s Super Mario Maker 2, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, Fire Emblem Three Houses, Astral Chain, Daemon X Machina, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, and Dragon Quest XI. And not long after that there’s Pokemon Sword and Shield.It turns out I (and lots of other internet rumor mongers) were right. Nintendo is promoting a new piece of hardware coming out this September. Here’s your first look at the Nintendo Switch Lite.Ever since Nintendo finally quietly killed off the 3DS it seemed all but inevitable that the company would release a more portable-focused Switch to carry on its handheld legacy and unify their software development at long last. And that’s exactly what the Nintendo Switch Lite is.This is a lighter, cheaper, sturdier device meant for kids with smaller budgets who like to give out tougher beatings. The 5.5-inch screen is slightly smaller, the battery life is slightly longer, and the Joy-Con controllers are built into the device rather than being detachable. That means no motion controls, IR camera, Labo support, or HD rumble. But at least you get a better D-pad.However, despite having the Nintendo Switch name, the Switch Lite doesn’t actually switch into a console. You can’t connect it to a TV and there’s no kickstand for propping it up. It’s only for games that say they work in handheld mode. I never expected this device to come with a dock, but I am a bit disappointed it doesn’t work with them at all.Still, stripping out these features has reduced the price. The Nintendo Switch Lite launches September 20 (the same day as Zelda) for $200. You can get it in nifty yellow, turquoise, and grey colors as well as upcoming collector’s versions themed after Pokemon Sword and Shield. I’ll just wait for the Switch Pro next year, though. In the meantime, here are some cool Switch games you can play right now. ‘Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball Form‘Super Smash Bros.

Weather Eye Cool temperatures with light rain to follow Octobers mild start

first_img October got off to a mild start Monday with afternoon temperatures in the low 70s. As of late afternoon, there was no measurable precipitation in in Vancouver. It was raining in Southern Oregon and in points north of Clark County.We will see light rain or showers and then clearing Thursday, with overnight lows in the 30s and 40s around the county. Computer models show it to be rainy and cool Friday with highs in the upper 50s.We get a break over the weekend, but it appears the fall pattern is changing. We could see systems coming at us every day or two next week. Meanwhile, colorful leaves are beginning to tumble down on the streets.Roads will have a soapy residue and the thirsty earth will soak up nature’s bath. Kids will splash through puddles on the way home from school. Adults will dash between the showers, umbrella in hand.Gardens will wither as harvest ends, and thoughts of summer will linger in the minds of many as others look ahead toward winter’s chill.

Gruner Jahr to Shutter Magazines

first_imgThe sales occurred on the heels of circulation scandals that had been dogging G+J and that prompted then-CEO Russell Denson to roll back ratebases to shore up circulation.G+J was one of the bidders in the auction for London-based Reed Elsevier’s b-to-b publishing arm Reed Business Information but has reportedly dropped out.Last year, G+J generated a $336.2 million operating profit and $3.62 billion in revenue, the report said. In anticipation of a major slowdown in ad revenue, German magazine publisher Gruner + Jahr said it will “slim down” its portfolio of magazines worldwide and reduce expenditures by roughly 20 percent in 2009.While it was not immediately clear which of its magazines would be affected, the company said it would discontinue titles in the coming weeks that did not “stand a chance of surviving the global financial crisis,” according to a Reuters report. A G+J spokesperson could not be reached for comment.In 2005, G+J ceased its U.S. magazine-publishing business by selling off its six titles; four (Parents, Fitness, Child, and Family Circle) to Meredith Corporation for $350 million, and Fast Company and Inc. magazines to Morningstar founder and CEO Joe Mansueto for an estimated $35 million. last_img read more

Donald Trump offers to meet Kim Jong Un at NorthSouth Korea

first_imgU.S. President Donald Trump said on Saturday he would like to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un this weekend at the demilitarized zone (DMZ) on the border of North and South Korea. Mr. Trump, who is in Osaka, Japan, for a Group of 20 summit, is due to arrive in South Korea later on Saturday. He is scheduled to leave on Sunday and return to Washington. Also Read – EAM Jaishankar calls on European Parliament President David Sassoli Advertise With Us “While there, if Chairman Kim of North Korea sees this, I would meet him at the Border/DMZ just to shake his hand and say Hello(?)!” Mr. Trump said on Twitter. Mr. Trump told reporters on Saturday, “We’ll be there and I just put out a feeler because I don’t know where he is right now. He may not be in North Korea.” “If he’s there, we’ll see each other for two minutes, that’s all we can, but that will be fine,” he added. Mr. Trump said he and Mr. Kim “get along very well.” Also Read – This is why Denmark, Sweden and Germany are considering a meat tax Advertise With Us U.S. special envoy Stephen Biegun said on Friday the United States was ready to hold constructive talks with North Korea to follow through on a denuclearization agreement reached by the two countries last year, South Korea’s foreign ministry said.Mr. Biegun told his South Korean counterpart, Lee Do-hoon, that Washington wanted to make “simultaneous, parallel” progress on the agreement reached at a summit between Mr. Trump and Mr. Kim in Singapore last year, the ministry said in a statement. Advertise With Us Both sides had agreed to establish new relations and work towards denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. But negotiations have stalled since a second summit in Vietnam in February collapsed as the two sides failed to narrow differences between U.S. calls for denuclearization and North Korean demands for sanctions relief. South Korea’s presidential office said nothing was confirmed with regards to a Mr. Trump, Mr. Kim meeting. “Nothing is fixed at the moment, and our previous position of hoping for dialogue between North Korea and the United States remains unchanged,” the office said. Russian President Vladimir Putin told South Korean President Moon Jae-in at a meeting on the sidelines of the G20 summit that Mr. Kim had told him in April security guarantees were key, and that corresponding measures were needed to realise denuclearisation, according to South Korea’s presidential office on Saturday. North Korea’s nominal head of state Choe Ryong Hae said in a speech praising Mr. Kim’s achievements on Friday that his “strategic decision and proactive external activities” brought about “the great June 12 event”, or the Singapore summit with Mr. Trump, and “re-establish(ed) the relations between the DPRK and big powers”, North Korea’s state media KCNA on Saturday. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) is North Korea’s official name. “The DPRK government will … work hard to develop the ties of friendship and cooperation with all the countries that respect the DPRK’s sovereignty and are friendly to it,” Choe said, according to KCNA. Birthday card In an interview with The Hill, Mr. Trump described his offer to Mr. Kim for a meeting as a spur-of-the-moment idea that occurred to him on Friday. I just thought of it this morning,” he said. Mr. Trump wanted to visit the DMZ on a 2017 visit to South Korea but he was forced to put off the plan because of bad weather. Mr. Trump said before departing for the G20 Osaka Summit that he did not expect to meet Mr. Kim during his trip. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said this week that a recent exchange of letters between Mr. Trump and Mr. Kim boosted hopes for a restart of talks, calling it a “very real possibility.” Mr. Trump told reporters on Saturday Mr. Kim had sent him a birthday card and Mr. Trump sent him a letter in return. North Korea’s official KCNA news agency said Mr. Trump’s letter had “excellent content” and Mr. Kim would “seriously contemplate” it, without elaborating. Mr. Trump has previously said publicly he had received a very warm “beautiful letter” from Mr. Kim. He has not divulged its contents, but the White House official, who did not want to be identified, described the letter as “very flowery.” “President Trump made his pitch for a short summit with Chairman Kim on Twitter as White House officials most likely have tried — and failed — to set up such a meeting through official diplomatic or South Korean channels,” Harry J. Kazianis of the Center for the National Interest said. If the meeting happens, “while no major agreements will be signed, both sides can reaffirm their commitment to dialogue and diplomacy, essentially resetting the table for a future deal in the weeks and months to come,” Kazianis added. But others were more sceptical. “The fundamental problem – no working-level meetings and no basic change in at least the US negotiating position – means that any meeting right now is just pointless theatre,” Vipin Narang, associate professor of political science at MIT, on Twitter.last_img read more

Modern masters come to Delhi

first_imgExploring the unexplored. That is the motto of this exhibition that starts at the Lalit Kala Academy today. The works on display are by the two masters of modern Indian art – Nandalal Bose and Benodebehari Mukherjee – who need no introduction for art lovers.The current issue of ArtVarta (a bi-annual magazine by Akar Prakar gallery), which is on contemporary photography in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh put together by Ina Puri, will also be launched at the exhibition. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’‘The aim was to look for works which we haven’t seen before. I had decided we will not take works from any institution like Lalit Kala Academy or National Gallery of Modern Art and the others,’ said curator Debdutta Gupta. Another interesting aspect of the exhibition, Works by Nandalal Bose and Benodebehari Mukherjee, is that it will showcase textile designs by Mukherjee and his works from his days as a student in Kala Bhavan, Santiniketan. The exhibition, by Kolkata-based gallery Akar Prakar, had earlier received much appreciation when it took place in Kolkata. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThere are more than 190 works on display and about a 100 odd are on sale. ‘You can actually own a work by the masters within Rs 50,000,’ said Reena Lath, director, Akar Prakar.  The exhibition also puts emphasis on letters by Nandalal Bose. Whenever Bose wrote a letter to a friend or relative or simply sent a postcard, he drew on it. One side of the letter contained words and the other side almost inevitably contained his drawings.All his works are an expression of his life experiences captured through the strokes of his pen. The postcards are drawn with subjects of mundane, everyday concerns. He drew about man and nature, little details of everyday living.  On one of the postcards, which he drew while his stay at Hazaribagh (the letter was written to his son-in-law Santosh Kumar Bhanja). Here he captured the lives of the local potters in pen and ink; how they burnt the clay, what their furnace looked like and how the women carried earthen pots on their heads formed subjects of this letter. Bose observed certain technologies very minutely. Interestingly, he applied the knowledge that he gathered from this to his art. For example, he saw a device called a chumbu used for applying mehendi. He filled colours in such a chumbu and used them for drawing mountains. As a result of this experiment, the picture gained a relief-like effect. In later years, he introduced the technique of drawing with this device to his students at Santiniketan. Mukherjee was one of them.  The works on display here will be the ones using water colour, wash technique, pen and ink, calligraphy, textile design, printmaking, lithograph and ink and brush. They have been sourced from private collections and families and friends of the artists.An untitled work by Bose (which he had sent to Abanindranth Tagore in Puri) shows a crow and a mouse. Bose did this in the Mughal miniature format using wash technique. Another by Mukherjee has Bijoya greetings on one side and the opposite is splashed with black ink. In the middle there are three leaves of the Nayantara flower found in abundance in Santiniketan. He drew this when he was already becoming blind.‘It shows how he translated his sorrow of visual impairment into the language of art,’ said curator Gupta.  We think this one is worth a dekko.DETAILAt: Lalit Kala Academy, Rabindra Bhavan, 35, Feroze Shah Road When: 11 to 17 Decemberlast_img read more

Human rights group launches abuse awareness campaign

first_imgOver 16 days starting from December 16 until the end of the year, women globally will suffer the greatest incidences of abuse, according to Patricia Martin, a US Attorney At Law and founder of One Woman At A Time, OWAAT.OWAAT is the world’s first international self-help online human rights toolbox for abused women to file for civil protection orders and divorce.  “But timing is everything, especially for #TheNext16Days 2018 in Cyprus,” Martin said.Now that the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence, also known as the Istanbul Convention is in force, Martin said, “it’s not necessary for abused women to first show evidence of blood, bruises or police/medical reports in court or to police before judges to issue or enforce emergency civil protection orders or for police enforcements to arrest.”At the moment, a campaign is underway by Dr Christiana Cleridou, Legal Advocate, Gender Law Expert and OWAAT volunteer, to raise greater public awareness in Cyprus about the Istanbul Convention, especially within the Cyprus Bar Association for her own legal professional community, for judges and court administrators, state officials such as staff of the social welfare services and shelter staff, and as a mentor for young lawyers students-OWAAT volunteers who attend Cyprus law schools and universities.“Awareness is key at this point,” Dr Cleridou said. Cyprus ratified the Istanbul Convention (IC) on November 2017 and was put into force of law last March.“IC is about creating public awareness of gender-based discrimination resulting in the risk of violence against women and children in order to prevent violations against their human rights to obtain state civil and criminal protections,” Martin said.For more information on how to self-help your right to no contact under the Istanbul Convention in Cyprus click here or visit OWAAT Facebook or the OWAAT website. You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.

Court for decades were actually it turns out being too near-sighted as the Trump Administration made a move that could significantly affect an international relationship that will last centuries In a little-noticed pivot the Administration set up China as the major geopolitical opponent of the United States in no uncertain terms led by a speech from Vice President Mike Pence This change in position not to be confused with the far more benign "Pacific Pivot" of the Obama Administration has set off alarm bells ringing from Tokyo to Melbourne We are seeing China bursting with new power and political purpose in global economics (with the one-belt one-road strategy); aggressive political strategies aimed at hold-out democratic enclaves like Hong Kong and Taiwan; deep cultural accomplishment (featuring a dynamic film industry and a powerful state-sponsored sports culture); a muscular control over international Chinese figures (arresting the head of Interpol and a globally famous film star); and a far more assertive approach in international organizations (including creating the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank) The recent reports of Chinas inclusion of intelligence devices into internationally sourced motherboards is a dramatic indicator of their intent to increase their control of global cyber supply chain the real Silk Road of the 21st century And having spent much of my long naval career in the Pacific it is fascinating to watch China transform from the third-rate naval power of a couple of decades ago to a robust highly capable maritime foe one that has integrated offensive cyber warfare into their training and readiness far more effectively than the United States All of this means that it is far past time for the United States to develop a coherent and effective strategy to face the rise of China Weve tried several approaches in the past Benign neglect ("it will all just work out if we can just get along") failed So did positive engagement which some have labeled "Panda hugging" and included showing a willingness to accept a variety of unbalanced practices in trade and intellectual property And the far more assertive and aggressive posture laid out in Vice President Pences speech will not work either All of these approaches are too short-term I assure you that China is thinking about the 300-year future of their nation They have tactical lines of effort flowing into mid-century Meanwhile in the Pentagon people get excited about delivering a Future Year Defense Plan which looks out five years Thats not good enough If we are going to deal with an emerging Chinese macro-competition in this century something the Trump Administration is correctly signaling we will face now is the time to lay out a true 21st-century strategy for China So what should we do What does a real strategic plan look like To start we should recognize the real possibility that we could end up in a global war with China if we do not handle this account with care A recent study of historical cases wherein rising powers have confronted established powers over 2500 years of history showed that in the vast majority of cases a war ensured Lets set an overarching goal of a peaceful if occasionally contentious co-existence We should confront where we must such as Chinas land-grab in the South China Sea their theft of intellectual property and deeply unfair trade practices But we should also cooperate where we can including on North Korea reconstructing Syria medical diplomacy disaster relief climate change the Arctic (where China has a surprising level of interest) and a host of other international issues Still we must also maintain our (slight) technological edge especially in the cyber realm If we do end up with a military confrontation with China it will likely not be a geographic fight with tanks and combat brigades Instead it will exist primarily in the cyber world and secondarily at sea and in the air even very possibly in space We have a slight edge now in cyber security quantum computing artificial intelligence and machine learning but it is eroding Maintaining it will require a concerted public-private partnership; unfortunately the recent Google decision to pull out of the Maven artificial intelligence project for example does not bode well for this We must redouble our efforts at creating a Silicon ValleyPentagon strategic axis on research and development Beyond our two nations though it is hard to overstate the potential geopolitical importance of India especially if coupled with Japan With those two powerful democracies working alongside us the chances are far higher of creating a counterbalance to a rising China While we are strongly engaged with Japan (including a mutual defense treaty) our ties with India are more tenuous and fraught following a lengthy history of mistrust Building a strong coherent relationship with India potentially the dominant nation of the 22nd century is critical Lastly our strategic approach must become accepting of the choices China makes and not allow the relationship to be driven by emotion or ideology The best book on leadership ever written may be The Godfather by Mario Puzo in which again and again we see that we must not make the mistake of hating our enemies in the end it only clouds our judgment China will make its own choices about domestic governance and how its society is structured America must accept that it can only change so much We need a pragmatic relationship with China that is transactional and occasionally confrontational but ultimately avoids the big war Creating that connection will be a key driver of how this turbulent century and those beyond it will unfold Contact us at editors@timecom IDEAS TIME
