Compromise needed to reach global trade deal – World Trade Organization chief

23 July 2008Countries must concentrate on compromise if they are to strike a global agreement to complete the current, much-delayed Doha round of trade liberalization negotiations by the end of this year, despite recent “constructive” talks, the head of the World Trade Organization (WTO) said today. Countries must concentrate on compromise if they are to strike a global agreement to complete the current, much-delayed Doha round of trade liberalization negotiations by the end of this year, despite recent “constructive” talks, the head of the World Trade Organization (WTO) said today. Pascal Lamy, the agency’s Director-General, told an informal gathering of the WTO’s Trade Negotiations Committee that progress was made during yesterday’s second round of consultations, but positive steps were “unevenly distributed across the issues discussed,” including agricultural and non-agricultural goods, subsidies and market access. This year’s talks on the Doha Round – a round that was originally supposed to conclude several years ago – kicked off in Geneva on Monday, and Mr. Lamy said that the week-long meeting should result in “the much awaited green light that both the developed and developing world expects from us. This is a heavy responsibility and we must not let this chance slip away.” He appealed to all delegations to deliberate on the issues at hand with urgency, emphasizing the importance of compromise. “Success or failure depends very much on how far all are prepared to cooperate with each other on the fundamentally important issues, and whether we are each prepared to act with the interests of the broader membership, and of the benefits to the system as a whole, uppermost in our minds,” the Director-General said at today’s informal meeting of the Committee. In his address, Mr. Lamy also welcomed Cape Verde as the 153rd member of the WTO. “Membership will provide a stable and predictable basis for the growth and development of Cape Verde,” he said. “They have worked very hard to achieve this, knowing it will give a welcome boost to the economy, and their efforts serve as an example to us all.” The island nation ratified its accession package – the final step in the accession process – today. read more

CAW says no immediate strike target in negotiations with GM Chrysler and

CAW says no immediate strike target in negotiations with GM, Chrysler and Ford by News Staff Posted Sep 5, 2012 11:04 am MDT caw|chrysler|Ford|gm|negotiations TORONTO – The Canadian Auto Workers’ union said Wednesday that it’s not immediately announcing a strike target for this round of negotiations with the Big 3 automakers, but it is telling local unions to start strike preparations.      The CAW said its goal is to continue negotiating with General Motors, Chrysler and Ford.      “This set of negotiations, the CAW is attempting a different approach by not immediately announcing a target company, with the goal of moving negotiations along with all three,” the union said in a news release.      But the auto workers’ union said the Big 3 automakers aren’t serious about reaching an agreement and want to cut costs from existing agreements.      “The corporations have been uniformly clear _ anything that adds cost will have to be paid for by savings elsewhere in the agreement,” the CAW said.      Hourly workers at Chrysler, General Motors and Ford plants in Canada have voted overwhelmingly to go on strike to back their contract demands.      The CAW said local unions across the three auto companies are being asked to form strike committees and start preparations for a strike.      “It is our hope and intention to reach an agreement with at least one of the three companies before the deadline. We must be prepared though to shut down operations at all three, should we be unable to reach an agreement.”      The strike deadline is Sept. 17 at 11:59 p.m.      The Canadian Auto Workers union has said Chrysler workers have voted 99 per cent in favour of strike action if necessary. The vote was almost as strong at General Motors, where 98 per cent backed strike action, and at Ford, where the vote was 97 per cent.      The union is looking to share in improving financial position of the three automakers after making concessions during the recession.      However, the automakers are looking to pare costs labour costs in Canada, which they say are higher than in the United States.      The last CAW strike was in 1996, against General Motors.

Cdns to pay more to fill up and heat homes this winter

CALGARY – Canadians should expect to pay more at the pumps and to heat their homes this winter as demand is expected to outstrip supply for all of the energy sources, the National Energy Board warned Wednesday.The NEB’s latest Winter Energy Outlook says Canadians should expect unleaded gasoline to average between $1.20 and $1.40 per litre.“As a result of U.S. refinery outages in the autumn, including the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and low inventories in the U.S., Canadians can expect to pay slightly more for their gasoline this winter,” it said.The NEB expects crude prices to be between US$85 and US$95 a barrel.Aside from paying more to fill up this winter, the NEB believes consumers will also pay more to heat their homes.Despite abundant supply, a seasonally normal winter weather forecast and a slow growing North American economy, natural gas prices are expected to be higher this winter as demand grows, it said.Prices are expected to range between $2.75 and $3.25 per gigajoule.Natural gas prices hit a 10-year-low this spring as production increases in the U.S. and an unseasonably warm winter last year resulted in a supply glut. In response to the low prices, demand increased from the U.S. power generation sector and that brought demand and supply into balance by the middle of the year.Heating oil prices are also expected to rise as refinery outages in the U.S. have reduced inventories, the NEB said. The average heating oil price in Canada, including taxes, is expected to average between $1.15 and $1.35 per litre this winter.The National Energy Board is an independent federal regulator of several parts of Canada’s energy industry. Its purpose is to regulate pipelines, energy development and trade in the Canadian public interest. by The Canadian Press Posted Nov 14, 2012 8:41 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Cdns to pay more to fill up and heat homes this winter: National Energy Board read more

Both sides in Syria guilty of war crimes in systematic effort to

“As reports are piling up of indiscriminate shelling of civilians, enforced disappearances and executions, another horror of the war in Syria is becoming apparent: the deprivation of basic necessities of life and the denial of humanitarian relief as a method of war,” they warned, calling on all sides to halt such actions, in a statement issued by the UN human rights office (OHCHR). “Numerous cases show that Government and pro-Government forces as well as armed opposition groups are impeding humanitarian relief to populations facing extreme deprivation, including children, women, older persons, persons with disabilities, the chronically sick, and civilians and persons hors combat held in detention,” they said. The six rapporteurs, unpaid independent experts appointed by the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council to whom they report, stressed that denial of access to food, water and health services and wantonly destroying housing clearly violate the human rights to food, water, sanitation, housing, health, and freedom from inhumane treatment enshrined in international treaties. “The acts being committed amount to crimes against humanity, carried out as a deliberate and systematic effort to cause civilian suffering. They also constitute war crimes and serious violations of customary international humanitarian law which binds all parties,” they said. They stressed that targeting medical units and personnel, making civilians the object of attack, subjecting them to inhumane treatment, obstructing humanitarian relief, attacking objects crucial for the survival of civilians, and using starvation as a method of warfare is explicitly banned. The UN estimates that 9.3 million people are in urgent need of humanitarian aid from the nearly three years of conflict that erupted when originally peaceful protestors sought the ouster of President Bashar al-Assad in March 2011. More than 6 million people are in critical need of sustained food assistance. The situation is most critical for the quarter of a million people living in communities under siege, such as Nubul and Al-Zahraa in rural Aleppo; Eastern Ghouta, Darayya and Moadamiyah in rural Damascus; the Old City in Homs; and Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp in Damascus. The UN estimates that over 100,000 people trapped in and around the Damascus suburb of Yarmouk are now in severe risk of starvation. From other besieged areas, reports are emerging of chronic child malnutrition and health problems caused by a lack of access to vital nutrients and safe drinking water. “Apart from obstructing humanitarian access through sieges and tight check-points, attacks have been carried out to destroy harvests, kill livestock, and cut off water supplies, with the apparent aim of starving out the targeted populations,” the experts noted. “At the same time, entire neighbourhoods and residences are being razed, aggravating the dire housing situation, causing further displacement,” they added, also voicing alarm at consistent reports of deliberate destruction of hospitals and medical units, and of arrests, ill-treatment, torture and killings of doctors, nurses, medical volunteers and ambulance drivers. “These acts are morally abhorrent, and present a major obstacle to building peace,” they stated. “We are outraged by the extreme human suffering caused by the apparent blatant disregard for human rights and humanitarian law. We urge all parties to the conflict to ensure immediate humanitarian relief to the large parts of the population experiencing extreme deprivation. The use of civilian suffering as a method of war must stop.” The experts are: Special Rapporteur on the right to food, Olivier De Schutter; Special Rapporteur on the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health, Anand Grover; Special Rapporteur on adequate housing as a component of the right to an adequate standard of living, and on the right to non-discrimination in this context, Raquel Rolnik; Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions Christof Heyns; Special Rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, Juan E. Méndez; and Special Rapporteur on the human right to safe drinking water and sanitation, Catarina de Albuquerque. read more

COP21 in Paris mayors and celebrities join UN launch of report on

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon (left) meets with Michael Bloomberg, former Mayor of New York City and UN Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change, during the UN Climate Change Conference (COP21). UN Photo/Eskinder Debebe Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon adds his name to those of the participants of the Climate Summit for Local Leaders, taking place on the margins of the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris (COP21). UN Photo/Eskinder Debebe Proven innovative policies and mechanisms are unlocking investment for much-needed climate-smart infrastructure in cities, according to a new report launched today at Paris City Hall by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and international partners. “Your efforts enable your citizens to reduce their carbon footprint, breathe cleaner air and live more healthy lives,” Mr. Ban told mayors and local leaders from all regions of the world during an event of the Climate Summit for Local Leaders, taking place on the margins of the UN climate change conference (COP21). Celebrities attending the event included Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert Redford and Sean Penn, advocates for climate action who support UN efforts towards building a sustainable future.Since the beginning of the week, governments have been meeting to adopt what is hoped will be an ambitious global climate change agreement to limit global temperature rise to below two degrees Celsius. The UN chief said mayors and local leaders “are essential to this effort.” “You know, from the ground up, how important it is to translate words into action,” he told them. “Your example can inspire national governments to act more boldly.” The UN chief is also underlining that the recommendations of The State of City Climate Finance can help unlock the capital needed to make major investments for climate action in cities: “We know these solutions can work – they just need to be scaled up. I urge governments, banks and the international community to act on these practical recommendations.” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon greets participants at “Compact of States and Regions: A Leaders’ Conversation” event. UN Photo/Eskinder Debebe ‹ ›The report makes five recommendations for mobilizing investment in low-emission, climate-resilient urban infrastructure. It analyzes the obstacles that many cities face in obtaining the financing they need, including uncertainty over regulatory and tax policies, lack of expertise in project development, lack of control over infrastructure planning, high transaction costs and lack of proven funding models at the city and regional level. According to the UN, urban areas account for over 70 per cent of energy-related CO2 emissions, and the world’s cities produce almost half of all global greenhouse gas emissions. Cities are also on the front lines of climate impacts and urgently need to build resilience, with more than 80 per cent of the overall annual global costs of adaption to climate change estimated to be borne by urban areas, according to the World Bank. “There is no way that we get to two degrees or to 1.5 degrees without building and living in, and transporting ourselves around cities in a very different way than we do today,” Rachel Kyte, the World Bank Group’s Special Envoy for Climate Change, told the UN News Centre in an interview. “At the same time cities are growing. In the next 30 years another two billion people will move into cities, and so we have to find a way to help cities get the financing necessary to become livable, green, clean, competitive, job-rich cities,” she added. The study, which led to the report, was issued by the Cities Climate Finance Leadership Alliance, a coalition of over 40 banks, governments and civil society organizations launched by Mr. Ban at the Climate Summit he convened in September 2014 in New York. The aim of the Alliance is to accelerate investment in low-emission, climate resilient infrastructure in cities, and to close the investment gap in urban areas over the next fifteen years. Alliance members are now reportedly working on a plan to help translate the report recommendations into action. Earlier today, the Secretary-General gave opening remarks at a “Compact of States and Regions” event, a group which was also launched just over a year ago. Mr. Ban said the world needs “more Governors, Premiers and Chief Ministers to invest in low-emission and climate-resilient development.” “Today, the Compact is launching a new global initiative called Regions Adapt in which its members commit to develop climate adaptation plans and report on their progress,” he explained. “Then there is the Under2MOU. In this, 57 state and regional leaders have raised the bar still further. They are committing to reduce emissions by 80 per cent by 2050.” Mr. Ban noted that “it could be a game changer” and described this commitment as one of the most ambitious ones made to date from states and provinces worldwide.

Even For a Team Down 31 the Rangers Are in Bad Shape

The New York Rangers and Los Angeles Kings will meet in Los Angeles on Friday night for Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final. Before Game 4, when the Rangers avoided the sweep, I said that simple probability was not on the Rangers’ side after they fell behind 3-0. Even if we assumed they were evenly matched with LA, New York had just a 6.1 percent chance of winning four consecutive games before the Kings could win one.Now that the Rangers have a win under their belt, their chances are better — improving to about 11.1 percent (if we again assume the teams are evenly matched). But the odds are still long: New York still needs to beat Los Angeles three times in a row, including two games on the road.We were wondering, though, if the sequence of wins and losses matters in a 3-1 series. For instance, by winning Game 4 and snapping a three-game Kings winning streak, do the Rangers have more momentum than, say, a team that won Game 1 and proceeded to lose three straight?The simplistic way of looking at this question would be to count the number of times each possible four-game sequence (e.g. LLLW, LLWL, LWLL, WLLL) occurred, and to determine how many times playoff team down 3-1 ended up winning the series after each sequence. From 1968-2013, here are those numbers:This seems to suggest the Rangers picked the worst possible sequence of wins and losses for a team down 3-1. But, of course, selection bias could be rearing its ugly head here: Teams trailing 3-1 that won in Game 1 or Game 2 are more likely to have been at home for the first two games of the series (historically, the NHL has used a 2-2-1-1-1 format for the majority of its playoff series). This doesn’t confer any special advantage — there’s no format under which teams would have more home games than their opponent through the first four games of a series — but it does tell us they were seeded higher, meaning they had the better record and were probably the better team. All else being equal, those are the types of teams you’d expect to come back more.Here’s what happens if we restrict to looking at teams that started the series on the road:The difference between teams like the Rangers — who lost the first three games of the series but won Game 4 — and teams that lost the first two games, won Game 3 and lost Game 4 is negligible after we remove teams that were on the road in Games 3 and 4. In that sense, the sequencing of the Rangers’ home wins and losses thus far doesn’t matter.However, there remains a rather large effect for teams down 3-1 who managed to get their win on the road, especially in Game 1. Teams who take Game 1 in the other team’s building and then proceed to lose three straight tend to win the series at a rate more than three times that of teams who trail 3-1 via any other sequence of events. Even in a relatively small sample of series, this is a statistically significant result.The question is, why? We’ve removed the bias of including teams that were at home for Games 1 and 2, so this sample strictly deals with teams who, for seeding reasons, did not have home-ice advantage (and were therefore less likely to be the better team). And all still had to win three consecutive games, including two more on the road. My only hypothesis is that it must matter for a team to show it is capable of beating the opponent on the road early in the series. But it’s possible I’m missing a theory, so please leave yours in the comments below.At any rate, those numbers aren’t of much consequence to the Rangers, because they didn’t get their win in Los Angeles. The history of teams trailing 3-1 offers little hope for teams whose lone win came at home, as New York’s has. read more

3 Foxconn employees charged for prelaunch iPad 2 design leak

first_imgIn the build up to the launch of the iPad 2 there was a lot of speculation as to what Apple had done to make its second-generation tablet better than the first. But that speculation wasn’t just based on rumor and guesses, there were a number of iPad 2 cases appearing at trade shows giving us a very good idea of what to expect.At the time we had to wonder how these Chinese manufacturers could be so confident those cases would fit the new tablet. Apple is, after all, very secretive about new products and it didn’t fit that they would share details so 3rd-party cases could be made.AdChoices广告Now we know the answer as to why those cases were possible. Three Foxconn employees working at a plant in Shenzhen were apparently arrested on December 26 last year on accusations that they leaked the final design of the iPad 2 before its launch. On March 23rd they finally got charged.For Foxconn it’s an embarrassing episode showing holes in their security during the manufacturing process. Apple would likely have insisted the leak be found as soon as they spotted a case that looked too good not to have been based on official designs.I doubt Foxconn would have complained too much about tracking down who leaked the information. Apple’s manufacturing contracts are worth a lot of money and they would do nothing to jeopardize that relationship.via DigiTimesMatthew’s OpinionI have to wonder whether Foxconn’s management of its documents is so bad they can be taken without anyone noticing, or did these three snap a load of photos or have time to make copies of the documents?I can’t see Apple not having some prerequisites in place for management of this design material, and I doubt those first pre-launch cases were perfect, so taking some photos on the sly sounds like what happened.What we don’t know is specifically what the employees were charged with and what their punishment is. I doubt they’ll be welcomed back to jobs at Foxconn or any manufacturing firm for that matter.last_img read more

Border Numbers Dip Below 100000 For First Time In Months

first_img Share Emilio Espejel/APIn this Aug. 1, 2019, photo, migrants rest near a Mexican immigration center where migrants set up camp in Matamoros, Mexico. Turning Mexican border cities into waiting rooms for asylum seekers may be the Trump administration’s most forceful response yet to a surge of migrants, many of them Central American families.The number of migrants encountered by U.S. authorities at the southern border has dropped below 100,000 for the first time in five months amid increased collaboration with Mexico and Guatemala to crack down on the flow, according to government data released Thursday.In July, there were 82,049 people encountered by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, down 21% from June when there were 104,344 people and down 43% from May. The number of families and minors crossing the border also dropped.The monthly numbers from USCBP have become a yardstick by which President Donald Trump measures the success of his administration’s efforts to reduce immigration, his signature issue. The number of migrant families from Central America has risen sharply during his term despite his hardline policies.News of the decline comes as 22 people were killed and dozens others were injured in a mass shooting in El Paso – a border city that has become the face of the migration crisis. The shooting suspect is believed to have posted a racist, anti-immigrant screed on the internet before the attack.Trump visited both El Paso and Dayton , Ohio, the scene of a second mass shooting last weekend where 9 died and dozens were injured. He was greeted by protests in both places. Critics contend Trump’s own words have contributed to a combustible climate that has spawned death and violence.Over the past few months, there has been outcry over squalid conditions for migrant children crammed into border facilities not meant to hold them longer than 72 hours. Some were kept for weeks because of delays in handling such cases.Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan traveled to another border town – Yuma, Arizona – on Thursday to detail the border numbers. He said that in mid-June there were more than 1,250 children in custody for 72 hours or longer — but that had dropped to about 160 children by Wednesday, with an average custody time of fewer than 24 hours.There had been about 10,000 families in custody; now there are 2,000 and they are held about 34 hours, he said. Single adults are down from 8,000 to about 2,000 in custody. He did not provide the length of detention for single adults, who are often held the longest.Seasonal declines in migration are common; fewer people make the dangerous journey when it’s so hot. But McAleenan said the May-to-July drop was much steeper than the same time last year.He stressed it did not mean the crisis had ended. “The situation is improving by every available metric, but, and I want to be very clear about this, we remain at and beyond crisis levels,” McAleenan said.Guatemalan officials recently agreed to what’s known as a “safe third country” pact with the U.S., meaning anyone coming through that country from El Salvador or Honduras would not be able to claim asylum in the U.S. The agreement was made even as Guatemalan courts blocked the effort. U.S. officials believe it will be in effect by the end of the month.The Trump administration also sought to effectively end asylum protections at the southern border, though that effort was blocked temporarily by U.S. courts.In June, after Trump threatened tariffs on Mexico, leaders there agreed to expand the administration’s program forcing U.S. asylum seekers to wait on the Mexican side of the border . Mexican police, soldiers and National Guard forces are raiding hotels, buses and trains to round up Central American migrants before they can make it to the border. And they are busing migrants from the Texas border hundreds of miles to inland towns.While July’s border numbers are below the peak of earlier this year, they are still high compared to recent history. Until this March, July’s total would have been the highest number in at least the last six years, spanning multiple previous surges of adults and children crossing to the U.S.___Associated Press Writer Nomaan Merchant in Houston contributed to this report.last_img read more

first_imgTechnology | December 04, 2009 Clinician Angiography Dose Lowering System Introduced December 4, 2009 – In an effort to lower clinician radiation exposure in the cath lab, a new device displays the real-time dose each clinician receives and alerts them when they enter the radiation field. The DoseAware system was introduced by Philips Healthcare at the 2009 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting this week in Chicago.DoseAware delivers real-time visualization, display and tracking of clinical staff X-ray dose to help healthcare professionals manage their exposure on the spot. Staff members wear a radiation detecting badge and their real-time detection level is shown on a screen attached to the cath lab monitors. When a clinician enters the radiation field, the screen warns the clinicians so they can take precautions to avoid exposure.The system data is stored and can be used to generate reports on each staff member’s exposure and trending information on particular cath lab rooms.The clinical tool is part of the Allura Xper angiography imaging system.For more information: www.medical.philips.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | Radiation Therapy | July 30, 2019 VIDEO: Use of Radiotherapy to Noninvasively Ablate Ventricular Tachycardia Pierre Qian, MBBS, read more An example of FFR-CT imaging from Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Mich.

Qantas and Airbnb have come together in a worldfi

first_imgQantas and Airbnb have come together in a world-first partnership to give Qantas Frequent Flyer members the opportunity to earn Qantas Points when they book their Airbnb accommodation through qantas.com.Australia’s national carrier and the accommodation leader have partnered to reward Qantas Frequent Flyer’s 11.4 million members with one Qantas Point for every dollar they spend on any of Airbnb’s 2.5 million accommodation listings across 191 countries.The partnership marks the first time Airbnb has worked with an airline in this way to reward Frequent Flyer members when booking accommodation through Qantas’ website – and is the next step in Qantas’ partnerships with innovative digital and technology businesses.Qantas CEO Alan Joyce said it was a natural fit for two global brands with a track record of wanting customers to feel at home when they travel as well as using technology to create great experiences for their customers.“The way that people around the world plan, book and experience travel is changing rapidly with the digital revolution,” Mr Joyce said.“We know many of our customers are just as likely to arrange an Airbnb as they are to book a hotel, and we wanted to recognise and reward them for that.“From creating Business class in the 1970s to introducing mobile technology to transform the check-in process in recent years, Qantas has always looked for ways to reinvent airline travel – just like Airbnb has done for accommodation. We’re really excited about the potential for this partnership.”Airbnb CEO and Co-Founder Brian Chesky said the number one reason people travel on Airbnb is because they want to feel like they truly live in their destination, even if it’s just for a night.“Our announcement today with Qantas highlights the rapidly growing movement towards the personalised and unique experiences available through the Airbnb community,” Mr Chesky said.“People around the world are experiencing a different way to travel through Airbnb. We’re focused on connecting people with the hospitality of locals, welcoming travellers into their communities so they can truly belong anywhere. There are just a handful of global brands who understand that travel is now changing for the better. Qantas is one of those brands.”To celebrate the new partnership, Qantas and Airbnb are offering Qantas Frequent Flyer members the chance to win the ultimate Qantas Airbnb experience for members who book an Airbnb via qantas.com by the end of October 2016.The prize includes four return Business class tickets on Qantas to San Francisco for the winner and three guests from the winner’s closest Qantas port in Australia; Qantas First Lounge access in Sydney prior to departure; five nights’ Airbnb accommodation in San Francisco using an Airbnb voucher to the value of $5000; $4000 spending money loaded onto a Qantas Cash card; and return transfers from/to San Francisco airport. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPBamYyxVsglast_img read more

moment Fueled by people who want to express their support for women’s rights at marches — but also at work out for dinner on Instagram — the shirts are growing in popularity and power Sure luxury brand Dior is selling a $700 feminist tee but the trend is rooted in a $30 unisex shirt from the Los Angeles shop Otherwild "The Future Is Female" the shirt declaresMinnesota artists and designers are creating some of the more popular designs using the T-shirts to raise money for nonprofits focused on women’s health and equality They’re also gathering around the messages hosting printing workshops and discussions"I think this activism zeitgeist just overlapped with a renewed interest in graphic tees as a medium for artists and designers" said Minneapolis designer Maddy Nye "Of course it’s only a T-shirt but it’s contributing to a larger paradigm shift in awareness and action"Protest art and imagery hangs from the walls of Nye’s sunny home studio For her "Matriarch" shirt Nye used a bulbous typeface that "had its heyday during the environmental and women’s movements in the 1970s" she said "but I like to use it in a contemporary context"So with just one word the design asks questions about what’s changed since then — and what hasn’t Some people have bought Nye’s tees for their mothers women who fought earlier battlesAngie Toner is "not shy" about being a feminist But working in the beauty industry a few years back she had conversation after conversation with women who eschewed that label It got her thinking about the backlash against the word the movement Then she came across a photograph of a woman holding a sign: "Feminism: Back by popular demand""I need a sign like that" she decided if only to hang on her wall Toner asked local sign painter Phil Vandervaart to draw the design "The drawing was so great" she said "that I was like you know what I’d like to move this around"So she printed it onto T-shirts and bags at Gee Teez a screen printing shop in south Minneapolis and put them on Etsy in 2015: "A Grassroots Feminist Fashion Action" she calls it Orders poured in Since then Toner has tried to quit the project a few times to move on to new things "But I’ve kept it going because anytime I try to let it fade out someone will reach out" she saidThe day after President Donald Trump was elected Toner gave the shirts away on the street Orders again filled her inboxPolitics and protests are inspiring big retailers to print "Feminist" on cheap totes and plastic jewelry But it’s also fueling local artists and small companies’ longer-standing projects My Sister a Minneapolis-based company that uses "sweatshop-free" clothing to help fight sex trafficking has been around for two years raising $93000 over that timeBeyond the money the messages themselves tackle gender inequality one of trafficking’s "root causes" said Mandy Multerer the company’s co-founder and CEO "Stop Traffick" is the benefit corporation’s bestseller she said but in recent months a tank is trending "It’s my body" the shirt reads on one side outlining the shape of a breast "It’s my choice""I think women feel strong when they wear it" Multerer said‘It’s all correct’ The image came to Crystal Quinn one night as she was falling asleepThe Minneapolis-based artist had been reading "The Dispossessed" a 1974 science-fiction novel by Ursula Le Guin turning over one of its ideas in her head: Because our culture is a patriarchy run by men then the opposition inherently must be femaleThat night the idea merged with a classic protest sign: the abortion-rights slogan "Keep Abortion Legal" in bold typeface within a circle"I just put those two together in a very natural way" said QuinnShe got out of bed and started drawing The result: "Anarchy is female" in ’70s script pushing up against the black circle containing it"Putting it on T-shirts was the first thought I had" said Quinn partly because she appreciates how like those sold at concerts they reference a specific moment The design has since landed on mugs buttons and as women marched after the election protest signs In January Quinn co-hosted a workshop for protesters to print the image"When I came up with the design it had nothing to do with politics at all or Hillary Clinton" said Quinn a multidisciplinary artist who has designed and made shoes pompoms and postersBut she has loved seeing how and where it’s popped up — the conversations it has started "People have used it in so many different ways" she said "and it’s all correct"While some sketched their designs long before last year’s election others were spurred by it: A peach T-shirt for sale at Mille a stunning south Minneapolis boutique with a national online following grew out of a post election conversation between owner Michelle LeBlanc and designer Nye"After the election we were kind of devastated" LeBlanc said "What can we do to be more active What can we do to give back more"Half the proceeds from the "Solidarite feminine" shirt which translates to "women solidarity" goes to Planned Parenthood Already the shop has donated $2000 to the health care nonprofit Money from a second T-shirt — which quotes Michelle Obama’s "Go high" in bubbly typeface — goes to DonorsChoose a nonprofit that allows donors to pick projects in public schools"Sometimes the kids write thank-you notes" said LeBlanc whose shop focuses on female designers Whenever the women at the shop are feeling down they pull them out she said "Oh let’s read through our letters"‘She persisted’ For Chelsea Brink the donations made the differenceThe freelance designer and art director had supplied the hand-lettering — "a fancier version of my own handwriting" — for a "She persisted" tattoo party that accidentally went public then viral In February more than 100 women and a couple of men lined up at a Minneapolis tattoo shop to get the quote referencing an attempt to silence Sen Elizabeth Warren inked on their bodies Women worldwide followed suit turning Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s words into protestBut when one of her friends requested a less-than-permanent version of the design Brink hesitated"I have mixed feelings about the whole T-shirt-message culture" she said "What are we really doing here and what kind of difference are we actually making"But the ability to donate convinced her Profits from her "She persisted" shirt have gone to the Malala Fund She Should Run and the National Women’s Law Center Brink chose organizations focused on equality but that aren’t aligned with a particular political party she said: "I wanted it to be as inclusive as possible"In the end Brink has appreciated that a little lettering has caused people to think about big issues: tolerance inclusion equality "If one person sees it and is affected by it" she said "that makes a huge difference to me"The Forum Communications News Service is the premier news wire service covering the Upper
