first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Scientists with the Geological Survey of Canada have confirmed that at least two earthquakes have occurred in the B.C. Peace Region since late Sunday.Earlier Monday, Moose FM received several reports of earthquakes that had been felt by area residents in the past 24 hours. The first earthquake reportedly occurred near Rose Prairie on Monday afternoon, while the second occurred near Farmington early Tuesday morning.A map of all catalogued earthquakes in Western Canada, Alaska, and the Western United States in the past 30 days. Photo by Natural Resources Canada. Seismologist Dr. Honn Kao with the Survey’s Victoria office confirmed that seismometers picked up a number of seismic events that occurred in the region in the past several days below magnitude 4. He confirmed that a M2.8 tremor occurred at 4:25 Monday afternoon just 12 kilometres north-northeast of Fort St. John at a depth of only 4.7 kilometres. Another smaller but even shallower quake occurred 25 kilometres west-northwest of Dawson Creek at 7:21 p.m. Sunday. That quake had a magnitude of only 1.9, but a depth of only 3.3 kilometres.Dr. Kao did not confirmed the other quake that reportedly occurred at around 6:45 Tuesday morning near Farmington, but that seismologists are still poring over data. He explained that earthquakes smaller than magnitude 4.0 are usually too small to be automatically pinpointed by the network seismographs in the Peace Region, meaning scientists don’t usually analyze such data immediately unless those smaller earthquakes are felt. Dr. Kao said that the shallow depth of the two confirmed quakes meant that scientists have alerted the BC Oil and Gas Commission to investigate whether there was any oil and gas industry activity occurring in the vicinity at the time of the quakes. At this point, there’s no word from the OGC about whether there was any industry activity occurring at the time.A list and map of all catalogued earthquakes that have occurred in B.C. and Alberta in the past 30 days can be found here: http://www.earthquakescanada.nrcan.gc.ca/recent/maps-cartes/index-en.php?maptype=30d&CHIS_SZ=bcwalast_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: Continuing crackdown on terror financers, security agencies have identified 13 people, including Hizbul Mujahideen founder Syed Salahuddin, Hurriyat leaders and businessmen, who are allegedly providing funds to terrorists and stone pelters at the behest of Pakistan spy agency ISI, officials said Sunday. The Centre has started seizing properties belonging to terror financiers in a big way. Thirteen individuals and their properties have been identified by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) and action has been initiated, they said. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details “Individuals identified during these investigations have been found providing money to all major terrorist groups like LeT and Hizbul Mujahideen as also Hurriyat leaders, separatists and stone-pelters in Jammu and Kashmir,” a senior government official said. Funds were provided to the leadership of Kashmir-based terrorist groups for misguiding, motivating and recruiting local youths to militant ranks. Operational activities of terror groups, including attacks on security forces, camps and convoys, are also being financed, the official said, adding money obtained through these channels are being used by major secessionist formations, especially the Hurriyat Conference. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday These funds are used for maintaining Hurriyat’s top leadership and a massive propaganda machinery to arouse disaffection among the people of Jammu and Kashmir against the Centre. It is also being utilised to spread false information through media contacts, newspapers and social media, the official claimed. The official said these are in turn used to instigate and lure misguided youths to resort to anti-India activities, violent street protests and stone pelting on security forces at encounter sites. Extensive use of such funds is being made to finance institutions such as select mosques, madrasas and organisations like recently banned Jamat-e-Islami(JeI)(J-K), for focusing on subverting locals, another official said. In the first strike, action was initiated to attach a plush bungalow of Zahoor Ahmad Shah Watali in Gurgaon, the official said. He is, at present, lodged in Delhi’s Tihar jail. Watali is allegedly a major conduit for funnelling terror finances into India, the official said. Documents seized by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) indicate that he was receiving money from Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) founder Hafiz Saeed, Salahuddin, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and the Pakistan High Commission here, the official claimed. Watali is known to have important sources of Hawala financing operating out of Dubai. Besides him, another 10 leaders were brought into the multi-agency action on terror funding. The ED has zeroed in on proceeds of such crime and begun action to freeze and seize such assets. The ongoing investigation in the first phase has determined and quantified assets valued at over Rs7 crore as proceeds of terror funding crimes, the official said. The 13 identified individuals include Mohd Yusuf Shah alias Syed Salahuddin, who through Hizbul, has been actively involved in creating unrest in Kashmir and other parts of India, according to a document prepared by security agencies. Being a resident of Jammu and Kashmir, Salahuddin has a wide network of local sympathisers, who act on his instructions and collect funds sent by him to fuel secessionist activities, it said. Hafiz Saeed, self-styled chief of Pakistan-based Jamaat-ul- Dawaa, and other separatist leaders of the state, including members and Hurriyat cadre, have been raising, receiving and collecting funds domestically and from abroad through various illegal channels like Hawala, for funding separatist and terrorist activities in J-K. The document said Aftab Ahmad Shah alias Fantoosh, a Tehreek-e-Hurriyat (TeH) founder member, was spokesperson and legal advisor to the Hurriyat (Mirwaiz faction). During a search at his residence in Srinagar, NIA seized various incriminating documents and during interrogation, Shah confessed that his charter of duties included monitoring incidents, issuing statements, arranging meetings and conferences. Shah, son-in-law of TeH separatist leader Syed Geelani, was closely associated with JeI (J-K). The 13 individuals also include Mohammed Nayeem Khan, Farooq Ahmad Dar, Akbar Khanday, Mehrajuddin Kalwal, Bashir Ahmad Bhat, Saifullah and Nawal Kishore Kapoor Khan, self-styled chairman of National Front, an organisation affiliated to Hurriyat, was part of the Muslim Jaanbaaz Force and earlier involved in various militant activities, the document said. Dar was JKLF-R chairman and is a terrorist involved in criminal and anti-national activities since 1990. He received arms training in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) in 1989-90.Khanday is a JeI(J-K) member and trusted lieutenant of Geelani. He knew of anti-India protests in the Valley. Kalwal, a former militant trained in PoK, is a key fund raiser for stone pelters.He collects funds on behalf of Hurriyat and spearheads protests, the document said. Bhat, a former Hizbul militant, went to PoK for arms training and was involved militancy cases.He is a trusted aide of Geelani and was aware of systems of fund collection and distribution by the Hurriyat leader to operatives, who indulged in anti-India activities. He has visited the Pakistan High Commission here with Geelani several times, it said. Kapoor, Watali’s close associate, remitted Rs 5.6 crore to Watali for which he has not been able to produce any document.last_img read more

Rabat – Morocco’s Atlas Lions, sometimes lacking the style that has made them a revered opponent in African football, struggled to top their group.This has involved scoring two unlikely last-minute goals to trump a failure to exploit the cracks of the opposition in a more timely manner. So things have so far gone Morocco’s way in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nationals (CAN) tournament.The Atlas Lions topped their group, perhaps the tournament’s toughest, and conceded no goals in the process. But for all the perfect statistics and the morale-boosting presence in many aspects of their game, the Moroccan Lions have rarely been at their most engaging. And, as the competition reaches the knockout stage and intensity mounts, decent will no longer be enough.Or, to put in the ruthlessly blunt style of Herve Renard, the Moroccan coach, Morocco has shone but failed to do so with the touch of style and brilliance that has come to be expected of this world-class player-packed squad.A disappointed coach On July 1, as Morocco emerged from a recital of ruthless efficacy against Ivory Coast, an opponent the Moroccan Lions overwhelmed and suffocated, expectations had been that South Africa would face a similar fate.That day, however, Morocco played as they did against Namibia in their first outing in this CAN–dominant and defensively mature, but largely clueless and inefficient in attacking.Renard, who had said before the South Africa game that the goal was to focus on topping their group, presumably to expect a more playable adversary for the next stage, may have been satisfied with the result. But the Frenchman was not happy.Renard felt, as he assessed his team’s performance after the game, that they had been wasteful and unthreatening in key moments, misfiring and unwisely using the attacking arsenal at their disposal.Or, was it that South Africa was actually a far more serious opponent than expected? That the Bafana Bafana’s sense of organization, especially their stifling presence in midfield, caught Moroccans utterly unguarded?The answer, as is often the case with a game where every match comes with its own realities, calls for perspective, nuance.But Renard, as he tentatively gauged what has been missing in the performance of a side carrying a burdensome task of making it work where generations have failed in over three decades, said that Morocco could have done–and must do–better with the kind of players the team boasts.“To be honest, I think we went home at half time. That is, we only played 45 minutes,” Renard commented on the match. Renard went on to say that the team must remain vigilant and focused in their upcoming matches.He noted that the best teams in Africa are playing in this competition, and Morocco needs to be at its best to win.Downplaying his team’s strengths is not unlike Renard. For all his unparalleled success at the CAN competition, the Frenchman is famous for thriving when his team is not taken seriously.He has generally seemed to delight in being an underdog that upsets, alter the order of things. But Morocco is not an underdog at this year’s CAN, which is perhaps why Renard seems to be intent on aligning results and appeal.This change in Renard’s typical attitude to games was most visible in his comments on what he said was a commanding display from the South Africans.Renard said, “Sometimes football just comes down to results, and I don’t think this team deserves only 3 points in the group stage.”He added, speaking of his lads, “The team did not play a great match against South Africa, but they realized the most important thing: the win.”Taking on the Benin SquirrelsPerhaps Renard’s caution will be more resonant now that the Moroccan players know who their opponents will be for the next stage. At 5 p.m (Moroccan time) on Friday, July 5, the Atlas Lions will confront Benin’s Squirrels.As with the game against South Africa, Morocco goes into that encounter as the overwhelming favorites. A slightly discomfiting consideration, however, is that Benin will most probably play against Morocco with the advantage of being an unruly, stubborn underdog.The Beninese Squirrels claimed 3 points in 3 games. While Benin obviously lacks everything that has made the name of Renard’s Morocco–creativity, pace, attacking bravura, and technical prowess–their three games, all of which they drew, suggest this is a squad that plays with an acute sense of what its strengths and weaknesses are.The 2-2 and 0-0 draws against, respectively, Ghana and Cameroon are particularly telling. Against two big names of African football, Benin put on the kind of display with which many underdogs have gotten the best of revered opposition.With a kind of Jose Mourinho-esque insistence on “simple football,” Benin has played an unadorned type of football: Defend in blocks and attack when you can or, as against Ghana, when necessary. Morocco, to repeat what has become Renard’s mantra, will have to be at its best to unlock an intransigeant and strong-willed Beninese side.More to the point: As far as Benin is concerned, the game against Morocco rings with the echo of “they have more to lose than us” mentality that has elicited the unlikeliest results from “playable” games.Morocco has history on its side, having spanked Benin 6-1 in a friendly and 4-0 in their latest CAN confrontation in 2004. When it comes to football, however, the past is almost never something to bank on.And so, as Benin hopes to upset the traditional order of things, Renard’s call carries singular resonance: The Atlas Lions will have “to deploy their very best” and breath more life into their rhythm in order to prolong their stay in Egypt. read more

The agreements signed in Rome by the Chairman and CEO of the Danieli Group, Gianpietro Benedetti, refer to a joint venture and orders for the supply of machinery and plants to be installed in the territory of Iran.The joint venture, Persian Metallics, with an estimated worth of €2 billion will involve a group of international, as well as Iranian, investors. It will use Iranian iron ore and energy to produce about 6 Mt/y of pellets intended for feeding direct reduction plants. The company says the “product is an excellent raw material to produce steel through melting by electric arc furnace, which is the most environmentally friendly and often more competitive way to make steel today.”Other agreements relating to the supply of machines and plants to produce steel and aluminium will be signed with several Iranian companies for a value of around €3.7 billion.The plant-making division of the Danieli Group based in Buttrio comprises various product lines, Danieli says, “in the design, construction and start-up of plants for the production of steel and non-ferrous metals, from the treatment of ore and scrap to the melting, casting, rolling and finishing of a wide variety of finished, flat, long, forged and tubular products.”The picture shows, from left: A.Conzatti (Danieli Iran Branch Manager), P.Graffi (Danieli Vice President Key Account Management), G.Mareschi Danieli (Danieli Member of the Board of Directors), G.Benedetti (Danieli Chairman and CEO), M.Karbasian (Iranian Deputy Minister Mine and Metals), B.Sobhani (CEO of Mobarakeh Steel), Mr Aghajanlou (CEO IMIDRO aluminium and mines), and Mr Younesian (IMIDRO financing and contracting Director)last_img read more

first_imgZakir NaikReutersMalaysia’s cabinet discussed the permanent residency of Indian Islamic preacher Zakir Naik on Wednesday, with three ministers demanding his expulsion for allegedly making racially sensitive remarks in the multi-ethnic nation.Naik, who has lived in Malaysia for about three years and faces charges of money laundering and hate speech in India, has come under fire for his recent comments that Hindus in the Southeast Asian country had “100 times more rights” than the Muslim minority in India.Race and religion are sensitive issues in Malaysia, where Muslims make up about 60 percent of its 32 million people. The rest are mostly ethnic Chinese and Indians, most of whom are Hindus.The Malaysian ministers said Naik’s comments may have been aimed at driving a wedge between Muslims and non-Muslims in Malaysia, an allegation that Naik denied.”We have expressed our position, which is that action must be taken and that Zakir Naik should no longer be allowed to remain in Malaysia,” Gobind Singh Deo, minister of communications and multimedia, said in a statement.”The prime minister has taken note of our concerns. We leave it to him to consider the position and to decide soonest possible what will be done to deal with the problem,” he added.M Kulasegaran, minister of human resources, and Xavier Jayakumar, the minister of water, land and natural resources, also released statements urging Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad to expel Naik.Naik, who has repeatedly rejected the charges against him in India, said his detractors were quoting him out of context to malign him.”My praise of the Malaysian government for its Islamic and fair treatment of Hindu minorities is being twisted and misquoted to suit political gains and create communal rifts,” he said in a statement on Wednesday.Malaysian state news agency Bernama quoted Mahathir as saying late on Tuesday that Naik cannot be sent back to India due to fears for his safety.”If any (other) country wants to have him, they are welcome,” Mahathir said.India banned Naik’s Islamic Research Foundation in late 2016, accusing him of encouraging and aiding its followers to “promote or attempt to promote feelings of enmity, hatred or ill-will between different religious communities and groups”.last_img read more

first_imgnonameRuling Bangladesh Awami League (AL) has decided to see a test of its main rival, Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) in the election to two city corporations, according to senior AL leaders.A central leader said they are taking preparations to hold elections in Gazipur and Khulna city corporations to assess the popularity of the BNP, before elections elsewhere.The election schedules of Gazipur and Khulna city corporations will be announced on 31 March, the election commission’s secretary Helal Uddin told journalists. The elections may be held in May.In fact, party leaders indicated, the ruling AL has no interest in holding elections to city corporations before the all-important national elections to be held at the year end.The AL could not forget its 2013 experience, when its mayoral candidates all five city corporation elections to the BNP nominees.The AL, however, wants to see how the BNP’s capacity without its chairperson Khaleda Zia campaigning in Gazipur and Khulna city corporation elections.On the basis of results of these two city corporations, the government will make plans for the elections to the rest of the city corporations where tenures of office-bearers are schedule to expire.Accordingly, the election commission can hold elections to Gazipur City Corporation any time. It can hold elections to Khulna City Corporation after 30 March.The elections to Rajshahi City Corporation (RCC) can be held after 9 April, in Sylhet after 11 April and in Barisal after 27 April.According to the EC and the government, there is no legal issue that can halt elections to five city corporations. It is possible to hold elections to all five city corporations simultaneously after Eid-ul-Fitr.However, apart from the AL’s reluctance to hold elections to all city corporations at a time, the ruling party is focusing on the process of national elections that is expected to begin after Eid-ul-Fitr to be celebrated in June.Earlier, the EC announced the schedule of by-elections to Dhaka North City Corporation on 26 February. Following a court order, the election was halted. The DNCC mayoral post fell vacant after the death of Annisul Huq.Elections to RCC, KCC, SCC and BCC were held in June of 2013 ahead of the 10th national elections held in 5 January of 2014 and all AL candidates were defeated then. The AL also lost the GCC elections held in July of 2013. BNP candidates won mayoral posts of all five city corporations.According to the AL’s own assessment, the party is not in a position to beat the BNP in elections to the five city corporations.A central leader of AL, preferring not to be named, said the people criticised the government for not holding elections to DNCC out of fear of defeat after the election was halted by a court order.The government will be liable if the elections to other city corporations are halted as well, the leader said adding the BNP has claimed that their popularity has increased after the former prime minister was sent to jail in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.The ruling party leader said they want to see whether the BNP joins the elections and how they perform in the elections.Some of the AL leaders believe the AL’s position is better in Gazipur this time while the position of BNP is better in Khulna. If the party wins at least one of two city corporations elections, their prestige will be saved, the leaders feel.AL presidium member and member of nomination board for local government elections, Abdur Razzak told Prothom Alo, “There was no formal discussion over the city corporation elections. Formal process can’t be started before the announcement of the election schedule.”He said the AL is not scared of elections. AL candidates will also win in the city corporation elections as the party has brought about massive development in the country in the past nine years, Razzak expressed his optimism.Elections to three city corporations were held in one and half years. The AL candidate won in Naryanganj, the BNP in Comilla and Jatiya Party in Rangpur. The AL was sure of winning Narayanganj for personal image of Selina Hyat Ivy.AL was not interested in holding elections to DNCC as there was no ‘guarantee’ of its win in the elections.      The ruling party has unofficially directed some aspirants to work for city corporation elections. Of them, former mayor of Sylhet City Corporation Badruddin Ahmed Kamran and Rajshahi city unit president AHM Khairuzzaman Liton have received green signal from party president, prime minister Sheikh Hasina.AL central leaders asked Gazipur city AL leader Jahangir Alam to work for the upcoming elections.Serniabat Sadiq Abdullah, son of prime minister Sheikh Hasina’s cousin and Barisal AL president Abul Hasnat Abdullah, and Hasina’s cousin Sheikh Jewel are in talks to get nomination for the election respectively from Barisal and Khulna.Former city mayor Talukdar Abdul Khalek is also a contender for the party nomination in Khulna. But, he is a member of parliament from Bagerhat-3 constituency. If he wants to participate in the city corporation election, he has to resign as MP.“I’m not interested in participating in the election,” he said. “Despite development works, I lost the city corporation election. So, I no more want to go back there,” he added.On the contrary, Sheikh Jewel is yet to participate in any elections.In Gazipur, city AL president Azmat Ullah Khan and general secretary Jahangir Alam are hopeful of winning the party ticket.In the last Gazipur city polls, held on 6 July, 2013, Azmat Ullah Khan was the AL candidate while Jahangir Alam contested the polls as a rebel candidate.According to party insiders, Jahangir has been instructed to work for the elections.“I’ve been working since the last city corporation election. I was also told to work for the polls. Other formalities will start after the schedule of the election is announced,’’ he told Prothom Alo. * This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Rabiul Islam and Imam Hossainlast_img read more

first_img Journal information: Physical Review Letters More information: Experimental and Theoretical Evidence for Pressure-Induced Metallization in FeO with Rocksalt-Type Structure, Phys. Rev. Lett. 108, 026403 (2012) DOI:10.1103/PhysRevLett.108.026403AbstractElectrical conductivity of FeO was measured up to 141 GPa and 2480 K in a laser-heated diamond-anvil cell. The results show that rock-salt (B1) type structured FeO metallizes at around 70 GPa and 1900 K without any structural phase transition. We computed fully self-consistently the electronic structure and the electrical conductivity of B1 FeO as a function of pressure and temperature, and found that although insulating as expected at ambient condition, B1 FeO metallizes at high temperatures, consistent with experiments. The observed metallization is related to spin crossover.via Physics Synopsis Explore further (PhysOrg.com) — Scientists studying the rotation of the Earth have long known that our planet doesn’t have a perfect spin. Most believe this is due to the different types of materials that make up the core, mantle and crust, which all have different rates of spin causing inherent friction. Most models researchers have developed however agree that in order for the planet to wobble the way it does, the mantle would have to respond to the magnetic tug of the core. The problem with this though, is that the mantle is made mostly of rock, not metal, which means it’s not supposed to be conductive. A new kind of metal in the deep Earth Citation: Part of Earth’s mantle shown to be conductive under high pressure and temperatures (2012, January 20) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-01-earth-mantle-shown-high-pressure.html © 2011 PhysOrg.com New research by a Kenji Ohta and his colleagues at Osaka University in Japan indicates they’ve found a possible explanation. As they describe in their paper published in Physical Review Letters, it appears that Wustite (FeO), believed to be one of the components that make up the Earth’s mantle, can be made to conduct electricity at high pressure and high temperatures.This new work by the team builds on findings from the 1980’s that showed that FeO becomes more conductive when exposed to shock waves. To find out if other conditions might cause the same outcome, the team placed a sample of FeO in a diamond anvil and heated it using a laser. As the experiment proceeded, they also measured the conductivity of the FeO sample.After heating the sample to 1600°C and applying 70 gigapascals of pressure, the team found the sample became as conductive as an average metal. They also noted it did so without any changes occurring to its structure.To find out if the same conductive properties would occur under more harsh conditions, comparable to those found inside the Earth, the team turned up the temperature to 2200°C while ratcheting up the pressure to 1.4 million atmospheres and found the same results. Such measurements suggest, the team theorizes, that the same conductive properties would likely hold under even more extreme conditions such as those found near the boundary between the mantle and the core.To better understand why FeO becomes conductive under high pressure and heat, the team did density and electrical conductivity tests as they relate to temperature and pressure and now believe that the metallization is related to spin crossover.

first_imgPeaZip 6.5 archiver update comes with big improvements by Martin Brinkmann on October 23, 2017 in Software – 14 commentsIf you use the file archiving software PeaZip already, you may want to grab the recently released PeaZip 6.5 as quickly as possible as it introduces some interesting features to the application.PeaZip is a popular file archiver for Windows that is available as a portable version and installer. It ticks all the right boxes when it comes to support for formats and functionality. I do like Bandizip a bit better still, but PeaZip is an excellent program after all in that niche.The program is compatible with all recent (and even some unsupported) versions of Windows, as well as ReactOS and Wine. Existing users may run update checks by selecting Help > Check for updates, but downloads are also available on the official website.PeaZip 6.5PeaZip 6.5 includes improvements to the program’s functionality that may appeal to a lot of users. One of the new features is support for browsing broken archives. The program comes with an option in version 65. that you can check to have the program try and load broken archives.

Throughout 2016, City cultural institutions will mark the commemoration with a variety season of events including exhibitions, concerts, lectures and tours. Events include the exhibition Fire! Fire! at the Museum of London from 23rd July.Source = London & Partners London’s Burning festival comes to a close with river burn of London London 1666, David Best and produced by Artichoke, part of London’s Burning festival © Matthew AndrewsLondon’s Burning festival comes to a close with river burn of London 1666 skyline sculpture, marking 350th anniversary of the Great Fire Artichoke’s LONDON’S BURNING festival closed on Sunday 4th September, as a 120-metre-long sculpture of 17th century London was set alight on the River Thames. The spectacular finale marked the end of a week of extraordinary arts events that transformed the capital to mark the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London.An audience of tens of thousands watched enthralled from the pedestrianised Victoria Embankment and the South Bank, as well as from Blackfriars and Waterloo Bridges which had been closed for the event. In addition, over one million people tuned into the live broadcast commissioned by The Space and hosted by Lauren Laverne, via social media platforms, and many more watched it streamed through external outlets across the world.​LONDON 1666 was designed by American artist David Best, working in collaboration with Artichoke and involved months of learning and participation work with young people across several boroughs adjacent to the City of London. Hundreds of schoolchildren took part in integrated drawing and history workshops in schools across these boroughs. The project also offered young Londoners not in education, employment or training, a potentially life-changing opportunity to take part in the construction of the piece. All involved received an introduction to the construction and creative industries, and the opportunity to gain a CSCS certificate and further employment qualifications.LONDON’S BURNING festival invited audiences from 30 August – 4 September to rediscover the City of London and beyond, its past and its future through a series of art installations and performances. Offering an opportunity to contemplate the lasting impact the Fire had on the architecture, outlook and infrastructure of the City including some of its most iconic buildings and landmarks through a unique Artichoke perspective.Thousands joined Station House Opera’s DOMINOES, on Saturday, a giant domino fall of 23,000 breezeblocks following the paths of the Great Fire through the City’s streets and buildings. Manned by 350 volunteers, the fall culminated in three spectacular fiery finales at Paternoster Square, The Gherkin and The Barbican.At Broadgate, audiences watched mesmerised as individual actors performed in a tank that regularly filled with 3,600 gallons of water. HOLOSCENES by US-based Early Morning Opera reminded viewers that today, it is flooding rather than fire that is the contemporary threat to our cities.Martin Firrell’s FIRES OF LONDON saw two new commissions on either side of the River Thames, Fires Ancient lit the dome of St Paul’s Cathedral with fiery projections echoing the catastrophic impact of the Great Fire of London on the Cathedral itself whilst Fires Modern projected onto the fly-tower of the National Theatre, revealing stories of resurgence and change that have shaped the UK’s capital city.More than 3,000 people visited OF ALL THE PEOPLE IN ALL THE WORLD, by Stan’s Cafe, at the Inner Temple. The installation which used 2 tonnes of rice to visualise statistics, compared historical facts with contemporary moments, offering a different way to experience the impact of these dramatic events each day. Thousands more enjoyed the spitting, crackling, afterdark FIRE GARDEN by Compagnie Carabosse on the riverside in front of Tate Modern each night.The TALKS PROGRAMME ​which accompanied the LONDON’S BURNING artistic programme explored how cities past and present have responded to crisis. It included an exclusive poetry reading by actor Simon Callow​ at the top of The Monument, and The Great Fire in Three and a Half Pints, a series of three guided walking tours, including a spine­-tingling tour of the City’s streets led by psychiatrist Joanna Moncrieff​, each tour stopping off at an historic Fuller’s pub along the way.Elsewhere in the programme, speakers included London’s highest­ ranking female firefighter, Becci Bryant​, and authors Suzanne O’Sullivan ​and Andrew Mitchell Hurley​, whose talk explored historical and contemporary themes including our fascination with fire, the language of crisis, the part art can play in solutions to crisis, responses to world trauma and the psychology of fear.In addition, to mark this moment in London’s history, the Right Honourable Lord Mayor of London hosted a tea party on Friday 2 September to recognise the efforts of the numerous towns and boroughs who contributed to the rebuilding of the City and the support of its residents in the days, weeks and months after the Fire. In 1667 a total of £12,794 was raised, equivalent to £1.9 million in today’s money. Guests included over 150 Lords Lieutenants, Lord Mayors, Mayors, and Council Leaders from across the country, and Masters of City Livery Companies.Developed by creative producers Artichoke and supported by City of London Corporation, an award from Arts Council England’s Ambition for Excellence programme and further support from the Department of Culture, Media and Sport and a raft of sponsors and funders, LONDON’S BURNING was part of Great Fire 350, a City-wide season of cultural events marking this anniversary.Helen Marriage, Director of Artichoke said: “50 years ago the 300th anniversary of the Great Fire of London was marked with a pageant. We wanted to do something completely different with an artistic approach that would mark the moment, create modern parallels, and bring the event to life for everyone.“Each piece of the London’s Burning programme added a different dimension and it was all free. People got to run through the City’s streets and buildings in a wildly exuberant domino fall, and were reminded of the beauty and the horror of events centuries earlier with a beautifully-choreographed burn on the river for the finale.“Our aim at Artichoke is to create extraordinary moments that disrupt the everyday and reach the widest possible audience. We’re very proud to have done exactly this through London’s Burning”.Mark Boleat, the City of London Corporation’s Policy Chairman, said:“City of London Corporation, the founding sponsors of LONDON’S BURNING, are delighted that Artichoke’s spectacular programme of events was so successful. A fiery St. Paul’s dome, giant toppling dominoes, and a 120-metre wooden sculpture engulfed in flames were among the art installations that captured people’s imaginations and generated global media coverage. Not only did it commemorate the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire and celebrate how the City rose from the ashes, ‘London’s Burning’ demonstrated that we take considerable pride in our huge investment in arts, culture and heritage.”The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “London is the greatest city in the world and the events of LONDON’S BURNING are an inspiring testament to the way in which the capital responded to a significant moment in our city’s history. London’s Burning has captured the imagination of thousands of Londoners and visitors from around the globe, showing that London is open to the world and bursting with creativity”Joyce Wilson, London Area Director, Arts Council England, said: “It has been wonderful to see Artichoke’s LONDON 1666 grow from ambitious beginnings to spectacular conclusion. With the platform provided by The Space, it reached audiences across the globe, and its legacy will continue in the young participants whose lives have been changed. It is a fantastic example of great art and culture for everyone.” the great fire of Londonlast_img read more
