NEMO | Webinar | 25 June 2018 | Difficult Heritage
 
01:05:58
On 25 May 2018, Jonathan Eaton and Mirian Bllaci facilitated the webinar "From mines to mind-maps: A dialogue-based approach to museum planning at Spaç Prison". When this webinar was held, the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 was in full speed and an aspect that seemed to be forgotten in the celebrations was the topic of difficult heritage. How can we deal with the difficult heritage that can be found throughout Europe? This webinar explores this topic with a dialogue-based approach to museum planning at sites associated with difficult pasts. Eaton and Bllaci discuss different methods for building dialogue on difficult pasts and presents ways of engaging diverse stakeholders in order to unlock the potential for such sites to promote human rights, civil responsibility and democratic ideals. The focus of the webinar is the ongoing work of the non-profit organization Cultural Heritage without Borders–Albania at a former political prison and forced labor camp in north-central Albania called Spaç. Beyond all of the managerial and conservation issues related to developing this site, Spaç Prison challenges what it means to ‘establish’ a museum. In an unstable climate, where the future of the site is not ensured, the underlying processes of heritage and museum-making must be shaped by dialogue, engagement and openness. As Spaç shows, a dialogue-based approach is a necessary precursor for an established and successful future museum at the site. Jonathan Eaton works as program officer at Cultural Heritage without Borders Albania. He applies his education in history and anthropology to his work by focusing on the interpretation and engagement aspects of cultural heritage – connecting people, place, history and memory and encouraging people to embrace heritage as an essential and active part of their life, because our heritage is who we are. Mirian Bllaci is an urban planner and cultural heritage manager, currently working as a program manager at CHwB Albania. He has developed strong interest & skills in designing and implementing activities aimed at strengthening the ties between people and heritage and at connecting between peoples. He is very active in the ongoing efforts to save and promote Spaç Prison as a Place of Dialogue and Action! Thank you for watching! Please note that the chat has been covered in the video recording that is published on YouTube to protect the participants' privacy. NEMO is the Network of European Museum Organisations, founded in 1992 NEMO's members stand for more than 30.000 museums in Europe! The Webinar was organised in collaboration with NEMECH - New Media for Cultural Heritage and MICC - Media Integration and Communication Center. www.ne-mo.org Find NEMO on Facebook: www.facebook.com/NEMOoffice Follow us on twitter: twitter.com/NEMOoffice @NEMOoffice Email us: [email protected]

The Rhineland region of Germany has more CO2 pollution than any part of Europe due to its many coal mines. That's why climate activists organized the largest protest against coal production that Germany has ever seen. To find out why we are still using such harmful energy sources, VICE Germany spoke with coal workers, environmentalists, and residents about climate goals, power plant technology, and a future without coal. We see entire towns and vast forests that have been evacuated to mine coal. Watch as we search for the truth about Germany's energy policy.

Poisoned By The Gold Rush
 
14:23
Gold is quickly becoming the new cocaine in Colombia. The precious metal is now the currency of choice for individuals and groups engaging in illicit trade in the South American country. That's because unlike cocaine, it's perfectly legal to carry gold, and unlike money, it's virtually untraceable. But there are some major side-effects of Colombia's new gold rush that locals are curiously quiet about: erectile dysfunction and brain damage. VICE News correspondent Monica Villamizar travelled to the Antioquia, Colombia, a hotbed of illegal gold mining, to investigate an unprecedented surge in impotence and neurological problems that experts are attributing to mercury, an essential gold-digging element.

Coal Miners Are Dying Of Black Lung — A Kentucky Law Could Make It Harder To Claim Benefits (HBO)
 
07:32
Kentucky is at the center of what experts are calling the worst black lung epidemic on record. But instead of making it easier for miners to get access to health care, Kentucky’s lawmakers passed a law that may soon hinder miners’ ability to obtain workers’ compensation benefits. The new law, which goes into effect on July 14th, bars federally certified radiologists from assessing coal miners’ X-rays in state black lung workers’ compensation claims. Instead, the state will require that only pulmonologists, physicians whose focus is lung disease, be allowed to judge X-rays for benefit claims. Right now, there are only 11 doctors in Kentucky who are certified to examine X-rays for state benefits claims, and the new law will cut that number down to five.

At the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, workers are tackling the final preparations for a major milestone, slated for next year: handing over full control of the site to Ukraine. Chernobyl still holds the distinction of being the world’s worst nuclear disaster. And the job of containing the fallout has required an international cast of players. A year ago, crews finished putting the new sarcophagus in place. It’s a massive steel arch -- officially called the New Safe Confinement -- that covers the destroyed reactor. Now, workers are busy sealing up the space between the new sarcophagus and the old one-- which was built in the 80s. And they’re facing some of the highest levels of radiation they’ve encountered so far. Jake Hanrahan got an exclusive look.

How The 'World's First Molecular Whiskey' Gets Made (HBO)
 
05:35
The conventional image of whiskey brands evokes scenes of bucolic homesteads, a banjo or two, and usually some white guy waxing poetic about heritage. But a startup in San Francisco called Endless West is trying to change that by making an aged style whiskey in a lab, in the span of about 24 hours. The first bottles of ‘Glyph’ recently hit the shelves and retail for around 35 dollars, billed as ‘the world's first molecular whiskey… that's never seen the inside of a barrel.’ Or a banjo. The process begins by studying existing popular aged whiskies at the molecular level, to understand and map the flavor profiles. Endless West then builds Glyph from scratch by adding a plethora of different chemicals to medical-grade alcohol. Thus mimicking the desirable elements of other aged whiskies and tailoring it to create a distinctly familiar, but entirely unique whisky - overnight. VICE News took a tour of the lab where the alchemy happens, and had an exclusive tasting before Glyph went to market.

In 1980 economist and Nobel laureate Milton Friedman inspired market reform in the West and revolutions in the East with his celebrated television series “Free To Choose.” Thirty years later, in this one-hour documentary, the young Swedish writer, analyst and Cato Institute Fellow Johan Norberg travels in Friedman’s footsteps to see what has actually happened in the places Friedman’s ideas helped transform. In location after location Norberg examines the contemporary relevance of Friedman’s ideas in the 2011 world of globalization and financial crisis. Central to his examination are the perennial questions concerning power and prosperity, and the trade-offs between individual liberty and income equality.

In the last five years, coca production has grown the most in the tri-border region, an area deep in the Amazon where Colombia, Brazil and Peru meet. The tri-border region is home to a messianic sect with apocalyptic beliefs whose members dress in biblical robes. Known as “Israelites," the religious group migrated to the Peruvian Amazon in 1995 in search of a promised land that's now infested with coca plantations. In part one, VICE News travels to Alto Monte de Israel to meet the messianic sect known as the Israelites, and learn about their prophet, Ezequiel Ataucusi, who led them to settle in the Amazon jungle.

Digital Intifada (Full Length)
 
35:36
Leaderless Palestinian youth, inspired by instructional videos and photos on social media encouraging people to "Stab a Jew," are thought to be behind a new wave of violence in Israel and the West Bank. Uncoordinated and spontaneous attacks by individual young Palestinians, mostly under the age of 25, started to occur almost daily from October 2015, with assailants often using a household weapon — a knife, axe, meat cleaver, screwdriver — before being fired upon by nearby Israeli security forces. So far, the bloodshed has claimed the lives of at least 28 Israelis and 189 Palestinians, 128 of whom Israel says were assailants. Israelis believe that Palestinian Muslim youth are being radicalized by Islamic groups through online incitement campaigns. Micah Avni, the son of Richard Lakin who was killed in an attack on a public bus in East Jerusalem in October, has filed a civil action lawsuit against Facebook. He and 20,000 other Israelis are suing the platform CEO. VICE News travels to Israel and the West Bank to talk to young Palestinians about their use of social media, and to Israelis who fear it's inspiring a Third Intifada. We also hear from parents dealing with the consequences of their children’s violent actions and explain their understanding of the situation.

Bantu trading network part 2 and it's demise
 
07:52
You can see the whole series from link bellow http://www.youtube.com/user/bfq3000 Piles of boulders were nestled at the summit, to be rolled down upon visitors. Here Van Graan's party found the typical remains of daily life: broken pieces of pottery, bone fragments, spindles for weaving, pieces of iron and copper. But they also found a tantalizing wealth of gold objects: a scepter covered with gold plates expertly hammered to within a five-thousandth of an inch in thickness, free from holes. A magnificent rhinoceros fashioned from gold plate tacked down with gold pins onto a core material that had long since disintegrated. There were graves bearing skeletons adorned with gold and glass beads, and wooden headdresses that had been covered with gold sheathing, as well as a superbly crafted golden bowl.... Mapunguebe quickly became the most excavated site in South Africa, but the results of these efforts went virtually unpublished since the existence of the oldest urban settlement discovered in southern Africa flatly disproved the Afrikanner myth of origins.... It's as if these rare artifacts were left so scandalously unprotected in order to facilitate their decay and disintegration, thereby relieving apartheid South Africa of the embarrassment of Mapungubwe's achievement.... After Mapunguebe, we drove to another stone settlement, this one only recently discovered: Thulamela (which means "place of giving birth"), located in the Kruger National Park. Established by the ancestors of the Shangaan, Tsonga, and Venda peoples, this settlement thrived between AD 1350 and AD 1650 and was in regular contact with traders from the great Swahili states along the coast. Today the stone-walled hilltop site is covered with ancient, sprawling baobab trees. Thulamela is clearly a part of the larger trading and Metalworking Empire associated with Great Zimbabwe and related to similar settlements found in Zimbabwe, South Africa, Botswana, and Mozambique. The contrast between the governments's handling of Thulamela and Mapunguebe could not be greater: First excavated in 1996, this site has been reconstructed from the original stones found by archaeologists from the University of Pretoria, in the atmosphere of openness created by the ANC government. People living near the site have been actively engaged in the excavation, sharing oral history with the scholars. Thulamela proves that black South Africans had evolved sophisticated mining skills long before Europeans arrived. Their metalworkers succeeded in converting iron ore into carbon steel for use in tools and weapons. -"Wonders of the African World" by Henry Louis Gates 1999

WN@TL - Wisconsin’s Niagara Escarpment. Donald Mikulic. 2019.02.20
 
56:18
This week (February 20) Don Mikulic, retired from the Illinois State Geological Survey at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, will help us explore the over-arching impacts of the Niagara Escarpment that starts near its namesake falls and curves over through Ontario and Lake Huron and skirts along the southern U.P. and then through the Door Peninsula and into eastern Wisconsin. Here’s how he describes his talk, entitled “Wisconsin’s Niagara Escarpment: The Continuing Impact of 430 Million-Year-Old Silurian Rocks on the State’s Development, Economy, and Scientific Heritage”: "Geology has a strong influence where and how our society develops. Few people, however, are aware of the importance of this connection. In eastern Wisconsin, the Niagara Escarpment provides a noteworthy example of this cause and effect. From defining the shape of the Great Lakes to making a home for the Green Bay Packers, the escarpment has been instrumental in the direction of eastern Wisconsin’s historical and economic development and more recently its geotourism. "The Silurian rocks of this region of which the escarpment is a part, continue to play a role in this development in addition to having been the basis of important scientific discoveries. First in the 19th Century documentation of ancient reefs by former state geologists and a UW President, on to more recent studies on the geologic record of glacially driven extinction events, these Silurian rocks have had an important role in studying the geologic past." About the Speaker Donald Mikulic is specialist on the geology and paleontology of Silurian rocks especially in the Milwaukee-Chicago area and on Wisconsin mining history. He has conducted research projects in North America and Europe and has worked as a curator at the Greene Museum at UW-Milwaukee, as a consultant for the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District and for the Wisconsin Department of Justice. He is a steering committee member of the Niagara Escarpment Resource Network. Mikulic grew up in Muskego, earned his bachelor’s in geology at UW-Milwaukee and his PhD in geology at Oregon State University. He retired as senior paleontologist from the Illinois State Geological Survey at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. He is affiliated with the Weis Earth Science Museum, at the Fox Valley Campus of the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. http://www.weismuseum.org http://www.escarpmentnetwork.org
Libya's Quiet War: The Tuareg of South Libya

In remote southwest Sahara, the indigenous Tuareg tribe — variously used and discriminated against by former strongman Muammar Qaddafi — fight for their place in a post-revolutionary Libya. Living deep in Libya’s desert near large oil fields and lucrative smuggling routes, hundreds of miles from Libya’s capital, the Tuareg find themselves impoverished and isolated on this prized land. Nowhere is this felt more than in the oasis town of Ubari. Here the Tuareg are pitted against former neighbors in a proxy battle for assets and power, backed by government and international interests. VICE News travels to meet the Tuareg on the front lines of Ubari and the border town of Ghat, to find out what is really happening in this rarely visited land.

The Netherlands is Europe's largest trader of palm oil, importing and exporting nearly 2.5 million metric tons in 2007. = = = = = = A new report from the Rainforest Action Network (RAN) and the Japan Tropical Forest Action Network (JATAN) claims that emissions from Asia Pulp & Paper are 500 times higher than estimated by the paper products company. The report says Asia Pulp & Paper fails to account for conversion of peatlands and forests in its calculations. Factoring land use change, the Rainforest Action Network estimates each ton of Asia Pulp & Paper product generates 16-21 tons of CO2 emissions. Asia Pulp & Paper estimates emissions at 0.03 tons of CO2 per ton of paper. Asia Pulp & Paper reacted strongly to the report, calling it a gross exaggeration. Environmental Resources Management, the company that conducted the carbon footprint analysis for Asia Pulp & Paper, expressed concern over how the paper company has represented the results. = = = = = = Nobel Prize Winner Wangari Maathai blasted the use of her name by a front group linked to Sinar Mas, a conglomerate that controls logging, wood-pulp, and palm oil companies.

The report assesses 500 major archaeological and heritage sites in developing countries and finds that nearly 40% are at risk due to development pressures, unsustainable tourism, insufficient management, looting, and/or war and conflict. To better protect heritage sites, the group has launched an early warning and threats monitoring system -- Global Heritage Network (GHN) -- that uses satellite imaging technology and ground reporting to enable observers to "identify and solve imminent threats within the legal core and protected areas of each site." = = = = = = California voters rejected Proposition 23, which would have repealed the state's climate change legislation.

Wandojo was questioned this week by investigators from Indonesia's Corruption Eradication Commission. He is accused of receiving a bribe of about $10,000 to win favorable treatment for a telecommunications company in the Ministry of Forestry's budget. Wandojo said he was taking orders from his superiors.

Guanajuato, Mexico - Unravel Travel TV
 
03:52
Guanajuato, the capital of Guanajuato state, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a charming colonial-era city situated in a picturesque valley surrounded by the Sierra de Guanajuato mountains. Guanajuato is nicknamed "the place of frogs" because the shape of its mountainous terrain is said to have resembled a frog to the city's early inhabitants. The region is known as the Bajo, or heartland of Mexico. Founded in 1559, Guanajuato is a former silver mining city and home to the La Valenciana mine. Silver was first discovered in Guanajuato in the mid-1600s. The La Valencia was opened a century later and quickly became one of the richest and most productive silver mines in the world. The adjacent Templo de San Cayetano (San Cayetano Church) stands as a monument to the wealth and riches extracted from the mine. The historic center of Guanajuato has a distinct European flavor with hundreds of narrow cobblestone callejones (alleyways) running up and down the hillside. Shady plazas are dotted with sidewalk cafés, museums, theaters, markets and historic monuments. The buildings throughout the city are fine examples of neoclassical- and baroque-style colonial architecture. An underground network of tunnels runs beneath the city helping to control the flow of traffic. Known as the birthplace of Mexican Independence, Guanajuato is an important stop along Mexico's Independence route, which also visits the nearby towns of Dolores Hidalgo and San Miguel de Allende in Guanajuato state. You can tour the Alhóndiga de Granaditas, a historic building and monument located in the city center and the site of the first major victory over the Spanish in 1810. Guanajuato is a city of legends and legendary places. One of the best known is the famous Callejón del Beso (Alley of the Kiss), an alleyway so narrow that couples can kiss from opposite balconies. Take part in a callejoneada, or walking serenade, led by student musicians who strum guitars, serenade bystanders and recite local tales. The city hosts the annual Cervantino Festival, a festival of performing arts that's named in honor of Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, author of Don Quixote. You'll also find a museum dedicated to Don Quixote and statues of him and his sidekick, Sancho Panza, in the Allende Plaza just outside the Teatro Cervantes (Cervantes Theater). Famed Mexican muralist Diego Rivera was born in Guanajuato where his former home has been converted into an excellent museum. The city is also home to a large student population, many of whom attend the Universidad de Guanajuato (Guanajuato University), one of the oldest universities in the state. Located next door to the university is an art museum. Guanajuato is a great place to sample regional Bajío cuisine. Favorite local dishes include enchiladas mineras (tortillas filled with meat, beans or cheese and topped with a sauce made from guajillo and ancho chiles) and pacholas Guanajuatenses (ground beef with spices). You may enjoy bird's eye views of the city and surrounding mountains and valleys in Guanajuato state while hang gliding or floating in the basket of a hot air balloon. Bring a sweater as the weather in Guanajuato is comfortable year-round, but evenings can get chilly.

Data published on the U.S. government's spending website shows the Department of Homeland Security contracted Pen-Link Ltd. (PenLink), a software company that develops communications surveillance collection systems, on June 4 with ICE listed as the contracting subagency. PenLink provides software that allows enforcement bodies to collect and analyze "massive amounts of social media and internet communications data," as well as collect wiretap intercepts "in real-time" for "tracking" and "live monitoring," according to its website.

United in Hate: The Fight for Control in CAR
 
25:21
In March 2013, the Seleka, a coalition of predominantly Muslim-armed groups from the northeast, marched on the Central African Republic’s capital Bangui and seized power. They committed mass atrocities against the population, and to the largely Christian population in the southwest, Muslims began to be associated with violence. They took up arms to form a Christian self-defense militia called the anti-balaka, and carried out revenge killings. By the end of 2013, the Central African Republic had descended into civil war. Under pressure from the international community, the Seleka were forced to give up power and retreated towards the northeast, where they regrouped. A United Nations peacekeeping mission and a French military operation were able to stem the fighting, but despite their presence, the transitional government has not been able to regain control of the country outside Bangui. With the anti-balaka controlling the southwest, and the Seleka controlling the northeast, the Central African Republic is de facto partitioned along ethno-religious lines. For those who find themselves on the wrong side of the divide, life has become hell. VICE News travels to Carnot, a mining town at the heart of the Central African Republic's diamond region controlled by the anti-balaka, where 500 Muslims are hiding in a church to stay alive. On the other side of the country in Bambari, ex-Seleka rebels are terrorizing the Christian population, with thousands forced to seek shelter in a cotton factory following renewed fighting.
