Preliminary phase of Lionel Desmond inquiry begins in Nova Scotia

first_imgGUYSBOROUGH, N.S. — An inquiry begins its investigation today into the death of an Afghan war veteran who killed his family and himself more than two years ago in Nova Scotia.The provincial government promised the inquiry in December 2017, almost a year after Lionel Desmond fatally shot his mother Brenda, wife Shanna and 10-year-old daughter Aaliyah, before turning the gun on himself.The 33-year-old soldier was diagnosed with PTSD after two tours in Afghanistan in 2007.Family members say Desmond sought help for his mental illness, but they say he did not receive the help he desperately needed.The inquiry opens today with hearings to determine who will take part when the inquest officially begins in September.Adam Rodgers, who represents Desmond’s estate and his family, has said the Nova Scotia Justice Department has already imposed unrealistic restrictions on legal fees and preparation time.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Jon Platt Honored at StarStudded City of Hope Gala

first_imgCity of Hope raised more than six million dollars at a black-tie gala honoring Warner/Chappell Music Chairman and CEO Jon Platt.Jay-Z and Jon PlattCredit/Copyright: Kevin Mazur/Getty Images for City of HopeThe funds will go toward the nonprofit’s research and treatment of cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases. Held at Santa Monica’s Barker Hangar, the annual event was hosted by Pharrell Williams and featured a performance by Beyonce, with Jay-Z presenting Platt with the prestigious Spirit of Life award.JAY-Z praised Platt’s many accomplishments and commitment to his craft, calling him an “incredible, passionate person” and “the Obama of the music industry.” Adding, “I can’t think of anyone more deserving to be prized in front of their peers, in front of the world, than my brother, Jon Platt.”In his acceptance speech, Platt commended City of Hope’s important work: “At a time in our country when so much is broken, I think it’s important that we focus on those who are doing great in the world. People who devote their lives to fixing what ails us, to the people that are saving lives. And over the last few months I’ve had the privilege to meet with the people of City of Hope, the people that give City of Hope its name.”Though initially hesitant about taking the spotlight, Platt emphasized how seriously he takes this honor – especially as an opportunity to shine a light on others: “As an African American CEO, I proudly embrace the responsibility to lend a helping hand to people of color who are coming up in this industry, as well as to represent my friends and my colleagues that are already doing good in this game.”He thanked numerous people who he credited for getting him to where he is and helping him along the way, including the songwriters themselves: “I’d like to thank songwriters… songwriters who represent diversity in all its forms, as you continue to prove every day, that genius does not discriminate.”The star-studded celebration, which kicked off with performances by Mary Mary and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, culminated with the nonprofit’s first-ever after-party, deejayed by Jermaine Dupri.Luminaries like Dr. Dre, Derek Fisher, Tiffany Haddish, Quincy Jones, Wiz Khalifa, Rita Ora, Bebe Rexha, Kelly Rowland, Timbaland, Justin Tranter, and Usher were in attendance.last_img read more

Senior UN team heads to Haiti in wake of alleged sexual abuse

The team, led by Assistant Secretary-General Anthony Banbury from the Department of Field Support, Military Adviser General Babacar Gaye and Police Adviser Ann-Marie Orler, will meet with leaders of the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) to support all necessary measures that it is taking to enforce zero tolerance, spokesperson Martin Nesirky told a news briefing in New York. It will also meet with the Haitian authorities to convey how seriously the UN and Mr. Ban himself take the allegations of misconduct and sexual abuse. “The UN appreciates the swift response of the Government of Uruguay, including the investigation that is under way, and the Government’s stated commitment to taking all appropriate disciplinary and, if required, judicial measures following the investigation,” Mr. Nesirky said.In an open letter yesterday, Mr. Ban’s Special Representative and MINUSTAH head Mariano Fernández underscored the zero-tolerance policy, noting that the mission immediately opened a preliminary investigation as soon as it received news of the alleged abuse, ordered the confinement in their barracks of the soldiers involved, and referred the case to the Permanent Mission of Uruguay to the UN.According to the agreements between the UN and the troop-contributing countries to peacekeeping missions, it is up to the authorities of those countries to shed light on such allegations. A Uruguayan team is currently in Haiti investigating the alleged attack. “We are deeply outraged,” Mr. Fernández wrote. “Such acts are inexcusable, and they have tarnished the image of MINUSTAH. But the acts of a few should not also tarnish that of thousands of military, police, and civilian personal serving MINUSTAH and Haiti impeccably since 2004.”The UN has a strategy to support victims of sexual exploitation and abuse “which we intend to apply,” he added, referring to legal, medical and psychosocial aid should the allegations prove true.The 12,000-strong MINUSTAH has been in Haiti since mid-2004 after then president Jean-Bertrand Aristide went into exile amid violent unrest, and in his latest report, Mr. Ban calls for it to be extended for another year until 15 October 2012. 14 September 2011Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has sent a senior team to Haiti to enforce the United Nations’ zero-tolerance policy on misconduct by its personnel following the alleged sexual assault of an 18-year-old Haitian man by Uruguayan members of the UN peacekeeping mission in the Caribbean nation. read more

Paper lands on list of top articles about special education

Lists that include “top,” “best of,” or “must read” are ones every author hopes to land on.For Kimberly Maich, Associate Professor in the Faculty of Education, her article Implementing iPads in the Inclusive Classroom Setting, has landed on one of these lists.Part of SAGE Publishing’s top articles of 2016 for special education, Maich, alongside PhD student Carmen Hall, wrote an article that provided practical suggestions to help guide teachers in utilizing classroom sets of iPads.“Knowledge mobilization is an area that I love,” says Maich. “I try to balance out research pieces with highly accessible pedagogical pieces that educators seem to particularly enjoy.”Maich explored the introduction to tablet technology in inclusive classrooms and the origins of those recommendations from a case study focus group, all of which were important elements of setting up classroom iPad use – from funding to teaching apps – which she then explains in practical terms.“Translating research findings is essential in the teaching field. That is what we are all about: practical applications. But we are also all about ensuring that those practical applications are powerful ones based on research findings.”Maich also enjoys collaborating with schools, community agencies and her research colleagues at Brock and other post-secondary institutions.She has other such collaborative work submitted for publication on the topics of special education leadership, school-based social skills interventions and visual strategies for classroom environments, as well as two upcoming case study books on Applied Behaviour Analysis and Ontario special education.You can read the full article, Implementing iPads in the Inclusive Classroom Setting here. read more

What happens after an iPhone dies Brock research finds little coverage of

While media coverage of the Apple iPhone is plentiful and has grown over time, stories about what happens to the popular devices once they’re thrown away are almost non-existent, Brock University research reveals.“Stories that make connections between iPhones and electronic wastes are annihilated,” says Jennifer Good, associate professor in the Department of Communication, Popular Culture and Film.“But these stories need to be told, since every stage of electronics’ life cycle takes a huge toll on humans and the environment,” she says.In her recently-published research, Good used a global industry database to search content from Canadian and international newspapers and broadcasters during two time periods: when the iPhone was launched in 2007; and July 2014 to July 2015.Good found in 2007, the term “iPhone” yielded 5,306 newspaper hits, while “electronic waste” or “e-waste” yielded 513 hits worldwide. In Canada, “iPhone” yielded 1,257 hits, while “electronic waste” or “e-waste” yielded 94 hits.But, there were only four stories in international newspaper articles containing “iPhone” and “electronic waste” or “e-waste” in the same article. In Canada, there were two stories.In U.S. broadcast news, “iPhone” appeared 477 times and “electronic waste” or “e-waste” appeared 18 times, but there were no stories combining “iPhone” and “electronic waste” or “e-waste.”In Canadian broadcast news, “iPhone” appeared 15 times and “electronic waste” or “e-waste” appeared once. There was one Canadian broadcast story combining “iPhone” and “electronic waste” or “e-waste.”This disparity grew dramatically in the 2014-2015 search results.Internationally, the number of iPhone newspaper stories went up 308 per cent from 2007, while the number of electronic waste stories fell 44 per cent from 2007. In Canada, iPhone stories increased 33 per cent, while electronic waste stories fell 69 per cent. There were only six stories in international newspaper articles containing “iPhone” and “electronic waste” or “e-waste” in the same article; in Canada, there was only on story.In U.S. broadcast news, there was a 173 per cent increase in iPhone stories compared to 2007, and electronic waste stories decreased 83 per cent. In Canadian broadcast news, iPhone stories increased 80 per cent; there were two electronic waste stories compared to one in 2007.But, U.S. and Canadian broadcasters did not air a single story containing “iPhone” and “electronic waste” or “e-waste” in the same story, according to Good’s research.“The iPhone clearly is news, but if the iPhone is going to be news, shouldn’t some aspect of the implications be there?” says Good.In her study, Good says that a concept called “symbolic annihilation” is what could account for the media blackout of coverage on iPhones and electronic waste.Underlying the concept is that, if something is not discussed in the media, then it is not important — it does not exist. Social scientists usually use the term to describe the absence of representation, or underrepresentation, of a group of people based on race, sex, age, or other variables.“When we think about the role of news and what we should be informed about, e-waste should not be getting symbolically annihilated from discussions about iPhones,” says Good.The sale of iPhones have been increasing. By 2011, Apple had sold more than 72 million of the devices. By early 2014, more than 500 million had been sold. In the first two quarters of 2016, more than 125 million iPhones were sold.As the shelf life of the iPhone becomes shorter and shorter, they are being thrown away at a faster rate. Combined with computers and other gadgets, electronic waste is the fastest-growing component of the municipal waste stream in both developed and some developing countries.For example, a 2012 report by the Electronics TakeBack Coalition found that more than 142,000 computers and 416,000 mobile devices are discarded every day in the U.S.Globally, an estimated 40 million tonnes of e-waste are generated each year, according to a 2009 study by the United Nations Environment Program.Good cites these and other statistics in her study, “Creating iPhone Dreams: Annihilating E-waste Nightmares,” published in the November 2016 issue of the Canadian Journal of Communication. read more

Kashmiris queue for twominute phone access

first_imgMembers of the American Muslim community stage a demonstration to protest what they say is the Indian government`s occupation of Jammu and Kashmir, a Muslim-majority state within India, outside the Federal Building in Los Angeles on August 10, 2019. Photo: AFPOutside a guarded government office in Indian Kashmir’s main city, an interminable queue forms every day for a near-priceless opportunity: a two-minute phone call to the outside world.Residents of Srinagar and the Kashmir Valley have been starved of phone and internet use for a week as India snuffs out opposition to its military lockdown in the Himalayan region.Only two mobile phones with an outside line are on offer in the deputy commissioner’s office, but so desperate are people to contact families in the rest of India and overseas that they come from across Srinagar and beyond to wait in line.Under the watchful eye of Indian paramilitaries, the calls and conversations are tightly controlled, and simmering frustrations often boil over.One 56-year-old woman, who had walked miles and was stopped at dozens of checkpoints along the way, became embroiled in an argument with security forces outside the office after she was turned away.”They stopped me from entering because they don’t have a female police of?cer to frisk me,” the dejected woman, who was hoping to call her two children studying abroad, told AFP.”I am worried about my daughters but they would definitely be more worried about us,” she said, declining to be named.In the end, she was left with no choice but to give her childrens’ numbers to a stranger in the queue and plead with him to try and contact them.Silent punishment India deployed tens of thousands of additional troops to back its move last week to strip Muslim-majority Kashmir of its autonomy, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi has not indicated how long the communications blackout and lockdown will last.A crippling curfew has been eased ahead of the Eid al-Adha festival on Monday, but there is still a massive security presence on the streets.The government has issued a few hundred satellite phones to police and top bureaucrats, while dozens of other officials have mobile and landline numbers linked to a private network.The deputy commissioner’s office began offering its mobile service on Thursday.Each day, the queue builds up early and jostling starts when an official emerges from a poorly lit corridor to take the names and numbers to be called in a register.”We are trying to help people to connect with relatives abroad,” the of?cer said on condition of anonymity.He reads out names of the lucky callers and hands over the mobile phone to each one. He also times each call, waving his hands when the 120 seconds are nearly up.Mubashir Hussain’s excitement turned to frustration when his call to a brother in the United States went unanswered.”He must be away from his phone or sleeping. There is a time difference,” the 44-year-old businessman said as he handed back the phone.Back to the ‘stone age’ A three-decade insurgency against Indian rule in Kashmir has left tens of thousands dead, and communication clampdowns are nothing new.According to the Software Freedom Law Center, a New Delhi monitoring group, there have been dozens of internet shutdowns this year alone.But the current restrictions — affecting the mobile network, landlines and cable TVs — are on a different scale.”We are being literally pushed into stone age. Cutting communication is a violation of basic human rights,” said Hussain.Shakeel Ahmad Khan said he had to plead with troops at several checkpoints to let him pass so he could try to contact his elderly parents who have been on the Hajj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia since last month.”I saw my mother in a dream last night and she said they are ?ne,” he said as he waited.last_img

Major Movies which Caused Major RealLife Headaches

first_imgWhile the movie world can create precious memories for millions of viewers, it isn’t always a great experience for those taking part in the making of them. Films which are inspired by true stories, use someone’s beloved home as a location, or in some cases both, have unwittingly caused strife for mere mortals left behind when the crew goes back to Hollywood. Here after four cases where the silver screen hasn’t proved so shiny for certain people caught up in the production… The GooniesOregon Film Museum. Photo by Constablequackers CC BY-SA 4.0Even over 30 years on from their first and only adventure, the Goonies crew still inspire devotion from an army of fans. Unfortunately for an Oregon houseowner this has translated into major disruption to their daily lives. Because way back when, the infamous “Truffle Shuffle” was performed outside her gate.If shuffling character Chunk (played by Jeff Cohen) thought he had it bad, he should spare a thought for this individual. “The owner had no problem with people taking a nostalgic look at her home,” an article for The Independent wrote in 2015, “but drew the line at beer bottles and cigarette butts being left outside and dogs urinating on her lawn.”The old Clatsop County Jail, scene of the Fratelli jail break. The site is now home to the Oregon Film Museum. Photo by Ian Poellet CC BY-SA 3.0Eventually a sign was erected denying access to the “Goonies House” and a tarpaulin draped across the windows to put off literally thousands of prying eyes. Presumably if the long-mooted sequel is made, producers will select a different location!A similar, if somewhat more poignant, case was reported over family favorite Mrs Doubtfire (1993). When star Robin Williams tragically passed away in 2014, the San Francisco property used in the film was festooned with floral tributes. According to Digital Spy, even as late this this year it “receives so many pictures, flowers and other tributes that it’s impossible for the elderly home owner to leave via the front door.” Napoleon DynamiteThe cast of Napoleon Dynamite. Photo by Gage Skidmore CC BY-SA 3.0Cult favorite Napoleon Dynamite (2004) brought the world many memorable characters. But in one example it unleashed a surprising case of double trouble. Efren Ramirez played the role of Pedro Sánchez, yet in a development worthy of a Jared Hess movie he had a real life twin brother, Carlos.Tensions flared when Carlos impersonated Efren as Pedro. He said he’d been asked to do this to help his brother keep up with professional engagements. However, speaking to TMZ in 2013 he said, “I did attend an event without his knowledge as I was being immature and wanted to get back at him for a personal matter which involved the girl I was dating at the time.”Related Video: The Incredible True Story Behind ‘The Revenant’Efren made the beef official by approaching Carlos with a $10 million lawsuit. The unauthorized appearances stopped after that. “I think it’s safe to say the magnitude of ‘Napoleon Dynamite’ and everything that has come along with it, has ruined my relationship with my twin,” he added.SidewaysQuirky comedy drama Sideways (2004) was a road trip romp blended with the intriguing pursuit of wine tasting. Yet just as drink and driving make bad bedfellows, so Paul Giamatti’s memorable character Miles Raymond proved a liability for the real life vineyards.The Hitching Post II Restaurant in Buellton where Miles and Jack first encounter MayaAfter delivering the immortal line “If anyone orders merlot I’m leaving. I am not drinking any (expletive) merlot!”, sales of the red stuff actually dropped. Not bad going for a fictional creation! In 2017 The Guardian wrote in the wine’s defence, saying “Giamatti’s character hated merlot precisely because it was so easy to drink. He wasn’t making a comment on the quality of merlot, but his own antagonistic contrarian tendencies.”The piece goes on to say that sales of merlot appear to be on the rise. Still, the decade or so that have passed since Raymond delivered his major blow are testament to the power of movies. A power that sometimes causes grief when it doesn’t intend to.The ConjuringThis franchise and its various spin offs have made a scary amount of money for studio Warner Bros. But aside from cinemagoers and movie execs, there are people unhappy about the paranormal encounters of Ed and Lorraine Warren — namely the residents of a farmhouse featured as a key location in the first film (2013). In fact so disturbed were they, that ominous forces of the legal kind were released.According to a 2015 Entertainment Weekly article, “Since the release of the film in July 2013, the couple (Norma Sutcliffe and Gerald Helfrich, who bought the house in the late ‘80s) have dealt with ‘threats of physical violence and harm, sleepless nights, and worry that one day, one of the many trespassers will commit an act of destruction, violence, or harm,’ the suit alleges.”Read another story from us: How Rasputin Initiated the ‘All Persons Fictitious’ Disclaimer in MoviesIt was based on a true story, though filmmakers wound up dealing with a reality they didn’t expect! The property, with the gruesome addition of a noose dangling from a nearby tree, formed a major part of the movie’s marketing and gave producers a serious financial headache.last_img read more

NASA Reveals First Fruit To Be Grown On The International Space Station

Ads by Amazon DEAL OF THE DAY Ads by Amazon Close Life at the International Space Station is about to get spicier as NASA announced its plans to grow the first fruiting plant in space.ISS Quests For Space-Grown ChilesNASA said it chose the Española chile pepper plant or Capsicum annuum because it has a short growing period, can grow at high altitudes, and can be easily pollinated. Peppers are excellent sources of Vitamin C, minerals, and antioxidants that are important for space diets.NASA is currently experimenting growing the plant on Earth under simulated space conditions and if all plans go well, the chile pepper plant will be sent to the ISS between November this year and January 2020.

The Española pepper plant will suit the dietary needs and help provide and nutrition for astronauts on space journey.The particular chile pepper plant grows at higher elevations in New Mexico’s Española previously known as the San Juan Valley. It has a slightly stronger pungent and bitter flavor and matures early to red. It was first grown by Spanish settlers in the area.Growing Foods In SpaceGrowing plants in space stations have become common since the crew of Soviet Salyut 7 first grew the model plant Arabidopsis in 1982. Russian cosmonauts were the first to plant and consume space-grown produce in 2003.Three years ago, NASA astronauts succeeded in growing and eating different types of lettuce on the ISS. Other foods such as Chinese cabbage, radishes, Swiss chard, peas, and other vegetables are already being produced aboard the space station.Despite the microgravity in space, astronauts were successful in growing certain types of plants onboard the ISS. Through the use of varied techniques, special types of lights, and temperature, they have coaxed plants into figuring out which way is “up” and “down”.To help grow fresh food aboard the ISS, NASA has set up the Advanced Plant Habitat, a fully automated facility for bioscience research that would complement the portable growing box called Vegetable Production System or Veggie. Through the Veggie, astronauts were able to grow green leafy vegetables, and flowers such as zinnias, and sunflowers in space.”We can build all the rockets we want to go to Mars, but it won’t work unless we have food to eat,” said Jacob Torres, a native of New Mexico and a horticultural scientist at NASA who is working primarily on the Española chili pepper project.

Los Angeles Chicano rights activist Castro dies

first_img Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement “I started thinking, these teachers . should be able to understand me,” Castro said in a 1988 interview with The Times. “I didn’t think I was dumb _ I thought they were dumb.”Castro was a social studies teacher at Lincoln High School near downtown in March 1968 when he supported and joined walkouts by hundreds of Mexican-American students.Their “blowouts” protested run-down and overcrowded East Los Angeles schools, poor teachers and discrimination. Castro earlier worked with students and graduates to present the school board with a list of demands aiming to improve the schools.“The curriculum largely ignored or denied Mexican-American history,” said a statement from the Los Angeles Unified School District. “Chicano students were forbidden from speaking Spanish, and often _ in spite of strong academic abilities _ they were steered toward menial jobs instead of college.”Walkouts lasted several days and spread to 15 schools. Castro and 12 others people were arrested. He was jailed for five days and charged with 30 counts of conspiracy, but the charges ultimately were dropped.Castro was fired after the walkouts but was rehired after weeks of protests by local parents. However, he was sent to different schools around the district for several years before finally being settled at Belmont High. He retired in 2004. Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day “Sal Castro held a mirror up to our district that showed the need for a youths’ rights agenda more than 45 years ago,” district Superintendent John Deasy said in a statement. “Graduation rates, access to college-prep courses, allocation of resources _ all of these issues needed fixing and that is why we have spent every day striving to provide the education each and every one of our students deserves.”Salvador B. Castro Middle School was dedicated to him in 2010.Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who took part in the student walkouts, called Castro a courageous leader who helped shape city history.“He will always be remembered for his zeal and commitment to improving educational opportunities for everyone, regardless of race,” the mayor said in a statement.In later years, Castro urged students to study if they wanted to improve conditions at their schools.“Here’s the protest: any kid with a book,” he told a 2008 symposium on Chicano activism at California State University, San Bernardino. “That’s the only way we can move forward, through education.”___Information from: Los Angeles Times, http://www.latimes.com Men’s health affects baby’s health too Top Stories (Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

Basel Switzerland — The BaselWorld watch and jewe

first_imgBasel, Switzerland — The BaselWorld watch and jewelry fair continues in Basel, Switzerland, with luxury watch designers presenting collections today that suit sport divers, employ titanium to beautiful effect, represent a new level of attention to watch movements, and put an exciting new twist on time.Dive Watches ThriveFor scuba divers—or anyone who likes the look of a sporty watch with the chops to withstand harsh environments—several new luxury timepieces deserve a good look this year. The 150-year-old brand Vulcain is most famous for two reasons. A surprising number of U.S. presidents have worn the company’s watches, including Eisenhower, Truman, Nixon and Johnson. (A personalized watch has been delivered to President Obama; no word on if he has worn it yet.) And, in 1947, Vulcain invented a mechanical alarm watch that was powerful enough to wake its owner up, and it became known as the “Cricket” for its cadence. This year, Vulcain unveils the Diver X-Treme Automatic sports watch, equipped with a new Cricket movement. The 44-mm watch of titanium with steel, titanium with pink gold, or blackened titanium with steel, has a triple case back that amplifies the cricket alarm, making it audible underwater. Prices start at 7,100 Euros.Family-run Clerc offered a glimpse of its new line of dive watches late last year, and is now ready to shine a spotlight on them. The Hydroscaph line features a highly complex 50-mm case (composed of 75 parts). Water-resistant to 1,000 meters, the watch has an automatic helium valve, a rotating bezel activated by a secured crown that won’t move out of place while diving, and self-adjusting lugs that allow it to fit snugly over a wet suite or right on the wrist. The timepiece also displays GMT or a second time zone, and is available in a variety of materials such as rose gold, blackened titanium, steel, carbon fiber and diamonds. Prices range from $9,700 to $37,000.Linde Werdelin has always placed performance first when designing its timepieces, which uniquely consist of a classic sports watch plus a computerized “instrument” that attaches to the watch to display crucial data needed by divers and mountain sportsmen. The base watch is updated this year to form four lines, and our favorite is the SpidoLite. The titanium SpidoLite Skeleton features a case that has been drilled to leave just the minimum of frame required to keep its structure, which complements a skeleton dial and even wide perforations in the strap. Only 44 pieces will be made, each costing $11,280. Attached the “Reef,” or diving instrument, and it becomes a dive computer automatically as soon as it is submerged in a meter of water.Time for TitaniumTitanium is gaining wide appeal throughout the watch industry, and though it is brittle to machine, it makes for an extremely light-weight watch. Hautlence, which built upon its TV-shaped timepieces last year with the introduction of its first round watches (HLQ), is now offering that new timepiece in all-titanium. It feels like a feather compared to the all-gold version that clocks in at a massive 120 grams of precious metal. The titanium HLQ has a circular date wheel, retrograde minutes, a gray or black dial and straps in poly as well as leather. The starting price is $42,000.HD3’s most popular model is the Three Minds, a large square watch that features three rotating discs on its dial, one each for hours, minutes and seconds. This year, a fourth circle occupies the dial—a tourbillon. Now, the tourbillon also represents the seconds, while other discs on the open dial display hours, minutes and the power reserve. The blackened titanium watch has light green numbers, and its production will be limited to 33 pieces. The price is 196,000 Swiss francs.BRM, which captures the sporting style of race cars in its watch designs, is releasing its first hand-crafted movement timepiece—the Bi-Rotor—in all black titanium this year. The rectangular timepiece’s light metal case holds seven sapphire crystal windows that put the movement on display. Among all the dark details are shots of sporty colors that the owner selects, including yellow, orange or red, that are seen as dots on the hands and as small shock absorbers in the movement. For a perfect fit, the watch comes with a tool for adjusting the lugs. The price is $57,000.Philip Stein incorporates a natural frequency technology in its watches that has won acclaim among wearers (including Oprah) for improving sleep and reducing stress. Now, a new edition of the two time zone watch will be made in titanium for the first time. The masculine timepiece displays distinct dials on top of each other, with the upper dial incorporating chronograph functions and a striking accent of orange. The timepiece will sell for $2,395.Getting ComplicatedWhen watch companies are seeking a partner who can create complications, never-before-seen movements, and unthinkable ways to track time on the wrist, they often turn to the Manufacture Christophe Claret, led for the last 20 years by the masterful watch maker of the same name. Finally, a watch will bear the name of Christophe Claret on its dial, rather than behind the scenes of another brand name. This first watch is called DualTow and it houses several inventions including one patented innovation, a single-pusher planetary-gear chronograph with striking mechanism and tourbillon. Hours and minutes are displayed on “belts,” and the owners can choose the color of their background. Only 68 DualTow watches will be made.The 20-year-old Daniel Roth watch brand is known for housing complicated movements in classically beautiful cases. This year, it presents a high complication in a timepiece that is accessibly priced for the category. The 44-mm Athys V, available in red or white gold with a sapphire case back and open white dial, houses a perpetual calendar and moon phase complication, and its movement is entirely decorated by hand. The refined timepiece will sell for $50,000.And sister brand Gerald Genta, which is marking its 40th anniversary this year, adds a new, aggressively-priced timepiece to its collection. Available in black or white, with a case option of 39 mm or 42.5 mm, the new Octo Overdrive is a steel timepiece with ceramic bezel that contains such specialized details as a lacquered cloisonné and guilloche dial, onyx cabochon crown, open case back, entirely hand-decorated automatic movement, jumping hours, retrograde minutes and date. All that will sell for $15,000.Marking another milestone this year is Bulgari, which celebrates its 125th year in business in 2009. As a tribute to its founder, Sotirio Bulgari, the company is dedicating a new line of watches to him. This formal, men’s timepiece features the brand’s manufactured movements and exclusive dial treatments. Among the line’s most complicated models are a platinum tourbillon with perpetual calendar, whose display features double coaxial retrograde hands (limited edition of 30); and an annual calendar with a 225-degree retrograde date, which is limited to 250 pieces in pink gold and 125 in white gold.The gem watch brand Icelink is well known for the diamonds that decorate its distinctive six-time-zone cases. And this year it enters new territory by innovating the movement inside the watch. In 6Timezone Mechanical, Icelink premiers its first mechanical movement, which is rectangular but uniquely curved to drive the time display on all six dials (five showing hours and minutes, a sixth indicating seconds). Each dial also reveals a day/night indicator, while the seconds zone shows the 50-hour power reserve. The timepiece is made in rose gold, white gold or platinum, with a variety of diamond treatments available. Pricing begins at 78,000 Swiss francs for the rose gold version.Special CreationsKrieger shifts focus from the inside of its mechanical watches to the top this season. Its Plethora collection of art dials adds a true artist’s vision of beauty to the company’s classic watch lines. Krieger is teaming with a Miami-based artist, who hand-paints eight different dial designs that include a colorful “berries” design to a graphic “lotus” image. Depending on the dial size, pricing begins at $13,000. By complementing the dial with any color combination of watch case, oversized crown, watch strap and diamonds, clients make these timepieces one-of-a-kind creations.This year Tiret New York unites watch lovers with what is often their other great passion: performance automobiles. Range Rover has tapped Tiret to design a limited edition of its first coupe. The exterior is decked in Tiret’s signature black with green accents, and inside the Tiret touch is seen in the form of diamonds on the dashboard dials, indicator bezels that match those of the timepieces, and a round Tiret chronograph mounted centrally in the car. Available by special order, the Tiret Range Rover will cost 140,000 pounds.And Vertu, the luxury mobile phone brand whose use of precious metals and gems, limited editions and innovative technology place it in the same spheres as haute horlogerie, is broadening its boundaries both high and low. At the most luxurious level, Vertu’s Signature line of phones sees the addition of white and yellow gold hand sets that are paved with diamonds and incorporate baguette diamonds for keys. The price of the yellow gold edition is $98,000. And a platinum version of the Signature features a .33-carat diamond as its dialpad joystick. It sells for $68,000. More affordable for Vertu is a collection of phone accessories, including a self-charging Bluetooth headset ($730), a USB stick with both regular and mini USB connections ($490), and a sleek pen ($330).www.baselworld.comlast_img read more
