Behold The Glory Of Sesame Street’s Custom Trombone Shorty Muppet

first_imgOn May 30th, Trombone Shorty performed at the 16th annual Sesame Workshop gala in New York City. The event, which benefits the nonprofit organization behind the beloved children’s program Sesame Street, was a high-profile affair, hosted by TV personality and host Katie Couric and, of course, a bunch of muppets including Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch, and many others. In addition to honors given out across the night, the gala primarily celebrated the launch of Sesame Workshop’s newly established Joan Ganz Cooney Fund for Vulnerable Children.However, given that this is a music site, most importantly, the gala gave us a series of amazing photos of Trombone Shorty partying with a bunch of muppets, including Elmo, Count von Count, and Zoe. Furthermore, to commemorate the famed New Orleans-bred musician and bandleader’s musical contributions to the evening, Sesame Street crafted a custom Trombone Shorty muppet. You can check out Trombone Shorty’s Twitter post about his muppet doppelgänger below, plus check out more pictures of Trombone Shorty, Katie Couric, and other muppets at the gala here. The Trombone Shorty muppet is the second TV-stylized version of the Orleans Avenue bandleader we’ve seen this year. In March, a cartoon version of him appeared on The Simpsons during a special episode about New Orleans.last_img read more

R8.3m boost for sustainable agriculture

first_img19 November 2012 Nedbank has invested R8.3-million in conservation group WWF South Africa’s Sustainable Agriculture Programme, which aims to tackle food security challenges as well as protect natural resources in the country. “A recent United Nations report titled ‘Food and Agriculture: The future of sustainability’ stresses the urgent need for the world’s farmers to be empowered to produce more food per unit of land, water and agrochemicals, while confronting widespread physical resource scarcity, a changing climate, and rapidly increasing input costs,” WWF-SA’s senior manager for sustainable agriculture, Inge Kotze, said at the launch in Cape Town last week. “These challenges overlaid with the degradation of our natural eco-systems and biodiversity make modern day agriculture more precarious than ever.”Collective and collaborative partnerships Collective and collaborative partnerships have an important role to play in enabling sustainable agriculture which contributes to the reduction of environmental and natural resource impacts, said Nedbank Agriculture’s John Hudson. “No single individual or organisation has the capacity to deliver the level of change required to make a real and lasting contribution to the sustainability of our country’s agriculture,’ he said. “[This] is why this partnership with WWF-SA is designed to unlock the full power of collective, public-private partnerships, collaborative investment, and support and recognition for those that demonstrate commitment and innovation in meeting the agricultural challenges facing South Africa and the world in the 21st century.” Only 13% of the South African landscape is suitable for arable or permanent cropland, and two-thirds of the country’s surface freshwater resources are currently utilised for irrigated agriculture, according to WWF-SA.Supporting a vibrant agricultural sector “There is an urgent need to redefine and refocus our vision in terms of the future of food and the role of agriculture in reaching that future,” Kotze said. “This is why the Sustainable Agriculture Programme is aimed at enabling better production, rather than merely focusing on increased output alone. “By promoting and supporting a vibrant and profitable agricultural sector in this way, we can all help to address potential food security challenges, while at the same time protecting the country’s/the planet’s natural resources, and unique biodiversity,” she said. Hudson said Nedbank aimed to promote and reward agricultural best practice and innovation. “By 2050, conservative estimates are that there will be around 9-billion people living on Earth. “If our country is going to overcome the significant environmental, social and economic challenges involved in feeding our population at this time, it is the responsibility of every one of us to start thinking and acting more sustainably right now,” he said.

Criminal harassment finding upheld over sexually degrading Yahoo forum

first_imgTORONTO – A man who set up a private online forum devoted to trashing and sexually degrading a former friend had his criminal harassment conviction upheld on Wednesday.In its ruling, Ontario’s top court rejected an attempt by Darrin Sim to have the conviction quashed, saying the trial judge made no mistakes in finding him guilty.“By any standard, Sim’s conduct was morally reprehensible,” the Appeal Court said.Court records show that Sim and the woman, who cannot be identified, were friends for several years starting in 2001 when he was 29 years old. He developed unrequited romantic feelings toward her and both eventually married other people and started families, the records show.They later began emailing updates on their lives and, in 2009, he asked her for photographs of herself, which she sent.In November 2010, court heard, Sim set up a Yahoo group forum and recruited about 150 members. The topic of the online group focused on the “degradation” of the woman, court documents show. She knew nothing about it.Evidence was that Sim posted extensive biographical details and photos of the woman. He also wrote “false, degrading, vile, and grotesque sexualized commentary” about her, according to the court. He urged group members to post their own ugly comments, share crude sexual fantasies involving her, and to upload altered photographs of her in a sexually degrading way.The aim, he posted on the forum, was to make the woman look like the “little slut she is.”Someone alerted her in April 2013 to the group, which by that time had more than 1,500 members, court records indicate. Through a co-worker, she was able to gain full access to the site and gather screenshots that included multiple perverted and sexual message strings about her.Among photographs on the website was one from her wedding alongside a sexually lewd caption. Posted details included her name, age, weight, height, bra size, underwear size, hobbies, education, occupation, and the number of children she had.The woman was “shocked and frightened by what she saw,” the Appeal Court said. She went to police, who charged Sim with criminal harassment and publishing defamatory libel.In October last year, Ontario court Judge Mitch Hoffman convicted Sim of criminal harassment but acquitted him of the libel charge.“The accused’s threatening conduct towards the complainant was done while he was at least reckless as to whether she was harassed,” Hoffman said.On appeal, Sim argued no proof existed that he meant to threaten her.In dismissing the appeal, the higher court noted Sim’s conviction fell under a section of the Criminal Code that bars “threatening conduct directed at a person.” Sim’s notion that criminal harassment requires specific intent to “instill fear” simply doesn’t square with the law, the Appeal Court said.The key question is would a reasonable person feel threatened by the impugned conduct, not what the accused was thinking, the court said.“The objective assessment must consider the circumstances in which the conduct took place, and the effects that the conduct actually had on the complainant,” the Appeal Court said in upholding the guilty finding.last_img read more
