The concept of the noosphere as a possible way of human development was depicted by an art-project at the Moscow International Biennale for Young Art

During the performance I imagined that humanity rejected the egoistic consumptive behavior and used natural mechanisms to preserve a balance between future development of technology and the biosphere.”

— Irina Lagoshina

MOSCOW, RUSSIA, June 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — As part of a special exhibition Britanka_Coop during the Moscow International Biennale for young Art, a project “After Us” created by artists Irina Lagoshina and Daria Kurguzova proposed to reflect on the technical development of civilization and possible future paths. An Installation and a performance were showcased at the “Winzavod”, a Center of Contemporary Art in Moscow.

“After Us” are images of technological evolution and thoughts on the subject of creation such a world where human civilization, nature and technology can all coexist in a harmonious symbiosis. Such a view of the world structure refers to the concept of the noosphere of the Soviet scientist Vladimir Vernadsky. He believed that within the process of evolution, after the biosphere and the technological revolution inevitably follows the spiritual revolution known as the noosphere. The unique unity of humanity, production and nature which should all transformed to be controlled by the human mind.

The Art Project proposes to recall the concept of the noosphere and use it as a positive view of the future, as an alternative to self destruction which is being pursued by humanity. Female torsos at different stages of pregnancy were used to symbolize the next stage of technological development. Mechanisms, electricity and electronics were used as images of the historical experience. The two placental casts, one deformed the other healthy, represented two potential future outcomes. Both scenarios are already “Born” but which will be our future depends on each one of us.

The last object of the installation, the casing of the mold from the “healthy” placenta symbolizes the possibility of creating a prosperous future. This object was completed during the performance. On the opening day of the exhibition, Irina created paints with the use of natural pigments and painted the plaster casings from the female torsos and the placenta which were obtained during the creation of the project. Painted torsos were destroyed during the performance to symbolize the past, which became the genetic basis of the present and the future.

“During the performance I imagined that humanity rejected the egoistic consumptive behavior and used natural mechanisms to preserve a balance between future development of technology and the biosphere. The result of my images is a laconic abstract drawing, while the shell from the cast of the placenta is similar to a sea shell – another symbol of birth” explained Irina Lagoshina.

“In the future, we would like to evolve the theme of the noosphere not only in art but also in the social sphere. We already have ideas on how to implement this in order to not only speak with the audience but also to make projects with like-minded people that will bring us closer to the implementation of the noosphere concept. Or it could very well be a new concept based on the theory of Vernadsky” stated Daria Kurguzova.

Australian Hassan Younes to judge Global Youth Summit

Training College Australia Director Hassan Younes

The Global Youth Summit hosts the 9th bi-annual environmental student event under this year’s theme being ‘Youth for Climate Change’, announcing Hassan Younes.

SINGAPORE, VICTORIA, SINGAPORE, June 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Global Youth Summit is due to host its ninth bi-annual event – bringing together international schools and student delegations with their environmental projects and initiatives under this year’s theme being ‘Youth for Climate Change’.

For three days a multitude of events and workshops, talks, programs, keynote speakers and of course the environmental award judging across different projects will occupy the three hundred international delegates – making it the largest non-government environmental youth event globally.

Event founder and president of the Hemisphere Foundation, Ms Ann Phua has just announced Australian Hassan Younes as this year’s panel judge and keynote presenter.

Younes comes from a background in aerospace engineering and is a recognised thought-leader in vocational training and education in Australia and internationally. Younes is the chair of the International Academy of Marawi and Director of the Australian Training College and has presented to academic, business and organisational leaders globally.

His appointment as one of the judges for the Global Youth Summit comes on the back of him being confirmed as the keynote presenter at the event, which is set to attract students from 15 countries.

“I feel honoured to have been chosen to address this year’s delegation of thousands of young environmental warriors. The Global Youth Summit is a fantastic initiative and a platform for learning and exchange that has a massive environmental impact globally,” Hassan Younes says.

“I know there will be many great projects and environmental initiatives coming together, and judging these will be a tough job. But even more than that, seeing so many international schools and students committed to creating a better world just goes to show how much positive work is being done for our environment. I am grateful to be part of the 2018 Global Youth Summit,” Younes adds.

Over the past 4 years, more than 28 000 students from 242 schools and 15 countries have benefitted from the Global Youth Summit – which has been held in Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia and now back in Singapore for the second time. The impact this has is not only on those that attend and their communities, but many of the projects and outcomes have spread to other schools, communities and countries.

Under the motto of "Take Actions for Earth" the Global Youth Summit has been hailed as one of the top highlights on the environmental calendar, taking place twice annually.

Founder and president of the Global Youth Summit, Ann Phua, says, “We could not be more happy with the number of registrations for this year’s event and can not wait to learn about all the amazing environmental projects the students have been working on. Likewise, we are pleased to have Hassan Younes join us as a judge and keynote presenter at this year’s event. It is clear that the Global Youth Summit is not only growing from strength to strength but is attracting more attention from governments, environmental stakeholders and thought-leaders internationally.”

Taking place in Singapore, at the National Library Plaza from June 28th – 30th the Global Youth Summit will again be a melting pot for ideas, technology and initiatives all aiming to protect and improve our natural environment. And, more importantly, to make the world a better place for generations to come. To find out more about the summit, log onto Actions for Earth or contact Hassan Younes at www.hassanyounes.com.

U.S. Veteran-Artist Nick Collier comes to Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park as June’s Artist in Residence

A successful residency is one that inspires and creates growth. It’s about a response to a time, place, and situation. A circular cycle completed.”

— Nicholas Collier, NPAF Artist in Residence

HILO, HAWAI'I, UNITED STATES, June 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — ISLAND OF HAWAIʻI — Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park and The National Parks Arts Foundation are proud to announce that Nicholas Coller, a Marine Veteran, Photographer, Sculptor, and Installation Artist, will be June’s Artist in Residence near the Park which is at the moment closed to the public due to high concentrations of Sulfur Dioxide, explosive ash clouds, ejected rock, and earthquakes at Kilauea’s summit that began in March of 2008.

In 2004, while supporting troops in Eastern Afghanistan, Nick Collier was driving on dark roads to pick up and deliver sniper teams into hostile mountain territory. He goes on to say the following: “So, on my birthday that year I was driving an Army sniper team. A rusty, diesel, right-hand drive, manual transmission Toyota Hilux (a Toyota Tacoma) with a tape deck and a horrible suspension. There really isn’t anything like driving by yourself in a hostile country in the middle of the night down a dirt road. But one of the funny things about it was that I never felt in danger, although I would have been dead if I had been stopped or ambushed. It actually made me feel like I was at home and not in a war. Like I was just out running dirt roads in my truck. I can still recall it, to this day. Life changing.” That surreal and radiant intensity beneath underlying experience is something that every artist seeks out and hopes to catch in their work.

That marine, Nicholas Collier, is now NPAF’s Veteran Artist in Residence at Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park. After leaving the Marines, Collier received his BFA from George Mason University, Virginia, in 2012 and his MFA Florida State University in 2016, and will be the Park’s First-Ever U.S. Veteran Artist in Residence for the month of June 2018. There are thousands of veterans who are also artists and the National Parks Arts Foundation is piloting this program to connect them to the incredible & limitless sources of inspiration available at parks such as Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park.

Collier will also produce a presentation for visitors and the public at large, on June 22nd, 2018 at 10 am, at the Kahuku Unit of the Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park. Directions: Enter the Kahuku unit of Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park on the mauka (uphill) side of Highway 11 near mile marker 70.5. Says Collier: “More than likely this will be a show of photographs but I wouldn’t write off having the inclusion of a sculpture or two. My first love is working three-dimensionally.” The ideas are sure to strike in the unique atmosphere of Kīlauea, now in the middle of its greatest eruption cycle since 1955, and that is just fine with Nick Collier. “A successful residency is one that inspires and creates growth. It’s about a response to a time, place, and situation. A circular cycle completed.”

Collier was NPAF’s first-ever U.S. Veteran Artist when he was selected to pilot the foundation’s program at Big Bend National Park, and the successful program has grown to encompass several residencies at Gettysburg National Military Park, and now at Hawai‘i Volcanoes NP. The core idea is to bring America’s warrior artists to the National Parks to work and heal, and show their work while interacting with visitors.
Collier’s path to the artist’s vocation might have been true but it wasn’t exactly straight: “I wasn't really the typical art kid because I was also an athlete and played sports year-round. After I graduated high school I went off to college to initially pursue a graphic design degree. It seemed at first to be a very practical degree that still kept me in the art world. 2.5 years in I decided to put it on hold and join the military.” says Collier. After leaving the Marines, he was on track to finish his original degree, but never that drawn to design, he was pulled instead towards the studio arts program. From that point on, fine arts has been his life. Though he describes his basic artistic approach as multi-disciplinary, having long worked in a variety of sculptural practices, he has turned to portrait and landscape photography. Collier’s portraits are a fascinating mix of the documentary and the creative power of the photograph.

NPAF is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to the promotion of the National Parks of the U.S. through creating dynamic opportunities for artworks that are based in our natural and historic heritage. This project is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, Friends of Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park, and other generous benefactors. All NPAF programs are made possible through the philanthropic support of donors of all sorts ranging from corporate sponsors, small business, and art patrons and citizen-lovers of the Parks. NPAF is always seeking new partners and donors for its wide-ranging artist-in-residence programs.

Property Damage Attorney Discusses What Flood Insurance Covers and Does Not Cover

Saffren and Weinberg - Personal Injury Attorneys

A flood can quickly destroy an entire home and you should be proactive in seeking flood insurance to protect you. This is why having a property damage attorney could help.”

— Marc Weinberg, Partner

JENKINTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, June 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — We are finally about to hit our summer months. As a homeowner, you need to be mindful of potential property damage claims associated with this time of year. Specifically, floods are a major concern. A flood can quickly destroy an entire home and you should be proactive in seeking flood insurance to protect you and offer you the outlet to file water damage claims with your homeowner’s insurance. This is why having a property damage attorney could help.

Flood insurance is the only insurance that will indemnify you for flooding that is caused by weather and other external forces. Homeowners’ insurance on its own will not. Typically, these policies under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) do not kick in until 30 days after purchase, so as a homeowner you should buy sooner rather than later.

Unfortunately, flood insurance is not full proof. According to the NFIP, this is a brief overview of what is and is not covered in a homeowners’ claim for water damage when they have flood insurance as a part of their policy.

What is covered?

Essential systems in the home:

-Every home is made up of a variety of systems that provide us with water, electric, sewage, heat, air conditioning, and much more. All of these systems are protected and insured in the event that a flood damages them or causes them to become inoperable.

Appliances:

-In your home, appliances can be accounted for some of the most expensive aspects alone. Flood insurance will cover refrigerators, stoves, dishwashers, washing machines and dryers, freezers, and even portable window air conditioners.

Carpeting and windows:

-Permanently installed carpet overtop of unfinished floors or any type of hardwood should be covered by your policy. Window blinds and curtains should also be covered.

Foundation walls and attached staircases:

-The only exclusion under these coverages is for any loss that is caused by earth movement, even the earth movement is caused by a flood. Any other damage resulting directly from flooding will be covered.

Detached garages:

-As the policyholder, you can distribute 10 percent of your total building coverage to detached garages.

Personal property:

-Coverage under personal property can include clothing, electronic equipment, and furniture so long as they are not stored in the basement.

Specific Valuables:

-Certain personal property will carry a higher monetary value and will be protected. Most policies allow for up to $2,500 value in coverage for items such as artwork and furs.

What is not covered?

Based on the previous list of what is covered, you would think that when filing a homeowners’ insurance claim for water damage that everything would be covered and there would not be any speed bumps in the path to recovery. Unfortunately, flood insurance is full of eligibility requirements and exclusions. Flood insurance also contains a cap in coverage of $250,000 per building and $100,000 for its contents (this is only the maximum, you can attain policies with lower limits). Additionally, flood insurance has separate deductibles for dwelling versus contents of the dwelling. Flood insurance exclusions and exceptions can be confusing so it is important to speak with an educated attorney who has experience with personal property damage law to ensure a full recovery after a flood.

How can you get flood insurance?

The Program of National Flood Insurance Program is a great source for providing flood insurance through numerous private insurance companies. Your local agent, who provides homeowners coverage will be able to assist you in finding the policy that is right for you.

FEMA also provides certain programs for high-risk areas that allow homeowners to pay set premiums that provides protection when there is a flood. FEMA provides an interactive map that will allow you to see a flood map of your area and average premiums for flood insurance in your area.

If you are in a high-risk area, your premium will likely be higher due to the increased risk of flood damage. There are many variables that will be considered when determining your premium that include: age of home, location of home and its proximity to water, house elevation, and that value of the home.

Impact Fashion Brand INDIGENOUS Honored as Best For The World in Two Categories by B Lab

INDIGENOUS honored as Best For The World Overall by B Lab

INDIGENOUS honored as Best For Community by B Lab

INDIGENOUS honored as Best For Community by B Lab

Founding B Corporation and industry leader in organic + fair trade fashion receives recognition as 2018's Best For Community & Best For The World Overall

SEBASTOPOL, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — "Impact Fashion” pioneer INDIGENOUS, an industry leader in ethical and sustainable clothing, announced today that it has once again been recognized as Best For The World—honored by B Lab with awards in two categories: Overall and Community. This honor puts INDIGENOUS within the top 10% of all B Corporations, companies dedicated to using business as a force for positive change in the world.

"As one of the first 18 founding B Corporations, we are thrilled to play a small role in the national acceptance of B Corp—now numbering 2,400 businesses—that put people and planet ahead of profit. Over 20 years ago, INDIGENOUS had a founding vision to create a culture of caring. Caring for the communities that make our clothing. Caring for our environment by using only 100% organic cotton, and sustainable practices. Caring for our customers, who deserve clothing that is entirely healthy, natural, and fair trade,” said Scott Leonard, CEO and Co-Founder of INDIGENOUS.

The category of Overall Best For The World is awarded based on a company's verified positive impact on communities, the natural environment, workers and more. The Community portion of the B Impact Assessment, for which INDIGENOUS was also honored, evaluates a company’s supplier relations, diversity, and involvement in the local community. It also measures the company’s practices and policies around community service and charitable giving, including whether a company’s product or service is designed to solve a social issue, such as access to basic services, health, education, economic opportunity and the arts. Honorees scoring in the top 10 percent set a gold standard for how business can be a force for good in communities around the world.

AMERICAN MANGANESE JOINS THE RESPONSIBLE COBALT INITIATIVE

AMY.V

AMY JOINS APPLE, BMW, SAMSUNG AND OTHERS AS THE 33RD FULL-TIME MEMBER OF THE RESPONSIBLE COBALT INITIATIVE

American Manganese inc. (OTCBB:AMYZF)

SURREY, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, June 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Larry W. Reaugh, Chief Executive Officer of American Manganese Inc. (“American Manganese” or “AMY” or the “Company”), (TSX.V: AMY | OTC.US: AMYZF | FSE: 2AM), is pleased to announce that the Company has been accepted as the 33rd full-time member of the Responsible Cobalt Initiative (“RCI”), an industry group set up to tackle risks in the cobalt supply chain.

American Manganese recognizes the vulnerability and insecurity of the cobalt supply chain and will help face challenges, share responsibility, and take joint actions with other RCI members and stakeholders to achieve a win-win solution in the cobalt supply chain.

The RCI organization includes enterprises such as Apple Inc., Daimler AG, BMW Group, Contemporary Amperex Technology Co Ltd. (“CATL”), LG Chem Ltd., Samsung SDI, Renault Group, and Volvo car corporation.

American Manganese plans to contribute their expertise in lithium ion battery recycling as a conflict-free and environmentally friendly alternative to the traditional cobalt supply chain. AMY would also like to develop their Blockchain initiative to help map and track the life cycle of lithium ion batteries in order to establish the provenance of battery metals such as cobalt. “Responsible sourcing of cobalt, given the DRC’s dominant place in global cobalt production, is becoming a key consideration for socially responsible companies,” said Larry Reaugh, CEO of American Manganese. “AMY’s recovery process, ratified by a blockchain digital ledger, will give companies the certainty they’re looking for that their cobalt is responsibly sourced.”

Coupled with the spike in demand, supply insecurity for cobalt is exacerbated by the fact that 97% of cobalt is mined as a by-product of copper and nickel mines, making cobalt vulnerable to copper and nickel market fluctuations. In addition, 60% of the global production of cobalt is contributed by the Democratic Republic of Congo, where political violence, government royalties, and child labour are making cobalt production uncertain for the growing cobalt supply chain. Currently, cobalt trades at $81,200/tonne.


About Responsible Cobalt Initiative

The Responsible Cobalt Initiative aims to:

• Have downstream and upstream companies recognize and align their supply chain policies with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas and the Chinese Due Diligence Guidelines for Responsible Mineral Supply Chains in order to increase transparency in the cobalt supply chain and improve supply chain governance.

• Promote cooperation with the Government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and affected local communities to take and/or support actions that address the risks and challenges in the cobalt supply chain.

• Develop a common communication strategy to communicate progress and results effectively to impacted communities, miners, and the public; and

• Harmonize working objectives and plans with other stakeholders.
