BILLINGS — An event that has been creating controversy since its announcement, the Drag Queen Story Hour held at ZooMontana on Wednesday drew hundreds, if not thousands, of attendees, as well as protesters outside.

The zoo parking lot was full around noon just before the start of the event.

“Obviously with today’s show of support, it’s needed, it’s wanted and we couldn’t be more proud,” said ZooMontana Director Jeff Ewelt.

Related: ZooMontana Not Backing Down From Drag Queen Story Hour After Community Backlash

Ewelt said he expected 1,500 to 2,000 people to attend over the four-hour event, but no official tally was available later in the day. Organizers placed about 180 chairs to start, with more set up just before story time began.

Ewelt says he has no regrets allowing the event to be held on zoo property, and it drew the biggest crowd he’s seen for a non-zoo-related event.

Three drag queens were in attendance, taking turns reading family books to children and taking pictures with guests during breaks.

“We were so excited to come. It’s Pride month, and we just wanted to come out and support our LGBTQ community and, of course, the zoo,” said attendee Karen Miller.

406 Pride sponsored the event in conjunction with other Drag Queen Story Hours held across the country in support of the LGBTQ+ community.

“It’s just a good day to be here with the drag queens and take pictures, and it’s a very proud day,” said contestant Kai Franklin.

It was a historic event, but one that divided, that aroused a great reaction.

“I’m so proud of ZooMontana for putting on this event and supporting 406 Pride,” Miller said.

An hour before the start of Drag Queen Story Hour, about 100 protesters lined the street in front of ZooMontana.

Second quarter news

“We find it appalling that Mayor (Bill) Cole and ZooMontana are promoting this situation,” said Bill Iverson, a protester.

Among the protesters was State Senator Cary Smith, R-Billings. The zoo is in his legislative district.

“I’m here to let people know what’s going on, and the sexualization of our children is something that I don’t support at all,” Smith said.

Protesters outside were concerned that children at the event could be exposed to sexualised content, although nothing like this was seen by an MTN reporter during the event. Nonetheless, protesters voiced those views with signs reading “Groom Pets not Kids,” “Stop Sexualizing our Kids,” and “Make the Rainbow Godly Again.”

“I believe the degeneration of society today is directly linked to the attack on the traditional family unit,” Iverson said.

Also outside the zoo, two counter-protesters held signs in support of LGBTQ rights. They said the event was good for Billings.

“That’s fine, and it’s not about sexualizing children. It’s an art form and it can be done in a way that isn’t sexual,” said demonstrator Avi Fox.

Never the Same: Part 1 – Why the Supply Chain Will Never Be the Same After the Russian Invasion | Thomas Fox – Compliance Evangelist https://aaimonaco.org/never-the-same-part-1-why-the-supply-chain-will-never-be-the-same-after-the-russian-invasion-thomas-fox-compliance-evangelist/ Mon, 20 Jun 2022 16:44:24 +0000 https://aaimonaco.org/never-the-same-part-1-why-the-supply-chain-will-never-be-the-same-after-the-russian-invasion-thomas-fox-compliance-evangelist/ After the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the business world will never be the same.

After the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the business world will never be the same. Deputy Attorney General (DAG) Lisa Monaco recently stated that “the global geopolitical landscape is more difficult and complex than ever. The most striking example is of course Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. It is “nothing less than a fundamental challenge to the international norms, sovereignty and rule of law that underpin our society”. This is all the more true in the current economic climate.

In this five-part series, I’ll examine how business will never be the same again, and how a confluence of events changed business forever. I am accompanied in this exploration by Brandon Daniels, CEO of Exiger. We will explore irrevocable changes in the supply chain, trade and economic sanctions, anti-corruption, cybersecurity and environment, social and governance (ESG). In Part 1, we start with changes in the supply chain, as perhaps no industry has experienced the tectonic shifts that have occurred in the marketplace over the past couple of years than in the supply chain.

Daniels identified three main reasons for these changes. The first began with the realization of the unsustainable actions of the major player in the American supply chain, China. This awareness had started before the pandemic, when it became clear that the massive theft of American intellectual property by Chinese companies has led to a huge problem of counterfeit products from China. Daniels estimated that “70% of the global counterfeit market is led by China.” The second was the slave labor problem with China, especially the Uyghurs. This heavy use of slave labor gave China an economic advantage that in many cases could not be overcome. It was economic warfare by another name.

All of this has been exacerbated by the pandemic and we have seen what it means to have an economic and geopolitical adversary as one of your main suppliers during a real global health crisis. This confluence of events has led to several key shifts in supply chain thinking. First, supply chain efficiency isn’t about weather events, it’s not about logistics, it’s not about just-in-time. There are much larger sets of supply chain issues that had not been highlighted before but have come to light much more clearly, such as geopolitical tensions. According to Daniels, “we realized that the supply chain is multifaceted in terms of issues.”

Next comes recognition of the need for ever-increasing government oversight and regulation. The need to eradicate modern slavery led to the passage of the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Law. This law greatly expanded compliance requirements for companies to certify that goods made by forced labor in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region of the People’s Republic of China are not entering the United States. Interestingly, the law created the presumption that all goods produced in Xinjiang were produced by forced labor, with the burden of proof on companies to demonstrate that materials, parts and goods originating in China were not mined. , produced or manufactured wholly or partly in Xinjiang. Business and government have also realized that many of the key rare earth elements and minerals widely used in the American manufacturing process came from China and now Russia.

Daniels put it all into perspective when he said, “You had this big earthquake during the pandemic, but then you had all these fault lines that we didn’t realize were on the brink of failure. a precipice. We were in these really fragile places and everything fell apart with the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Rare earth elements like neodymium which is used to attach an F35 to electric car batteries, metals and heavy metals used in standard manufacturing processes such as aluminum, iron and neon; supply chain disruptions have all been compounded by the Russian invasion of Ukraine on top of the ongoing disruptions from the pandemic and beyond.

Finally, there was a new element in the supply chain calculus, what Daniels called “the ethical conundrum.” Russia has engaged in a brutal and unjustified war that has disrupted the flow of goods and services from Russia and Ukraine. Neon, a key component for chip processing, is heavily concentrated in Ukraine, as are some of our largest outsourced engineering software companies. As the US and European governments have responded with a series of tougher and more robust economic and trade sanctions, pressures on the supply chain have increased. You need to consider greater and more continuous due diligence and greater sustainability.

These issues have gone beyond simple national security issues in the government and public sector. As DAG Monaco put it, “Increasingly, you and your customers are on the front lines of responding to these geopolitical realities…our goal is not just to hold people accountable, but to disrupt these threats by using all the tools at our disposal”. Private companies need to understand that they are now part of what Daniels called “continuing non-kinetic warfare.”

But on top of this new kind of warfare that every business is now a part of, everything is tied to the economic prosperity of the United States. While this was clear in the adversarial relationship between the United States and China before the pandemic; it accelerated during the pandemic and now after the Russian invasion of Ukraine. If you couldn’t get a mask so you could go to work during the pandemic, this health problem has become an economic problem. If you were doing business with a Russian oligarch, the reputational damage to your turnover will negatively impact your business, perhaps materially.

Tomorrow we will look at why economic and trade sanctions will never be the same again.

MONTPELIER, VT—The Spotlight Gallery of the Vermont Arts Council will present a selection of works from the Catamount Arts exhibition “Art from Guantánamo Bay” from June 22 through August 21.

Curated by Erin L. Thompson, the critically acclaimed exhibit features nearly 100 evocative works by six men held in the US military prison camp known as Guantánamo Bay. The six men have been held there for 20 years without being charged or convicted of a crime.

“The Art of Guantánamo Bay” has generated widespread media coverage around the world, leading to the creation of a ban since 2017 against the removal of artwork from the prison. These parts have been removed before.

The Catamount Arts exhibit will include works by detained artist Abdul Zahir, client of St. Johnsbury attorneys Robert Gensburg and David Sleigh, who volunteered for more than a decade with the Guantánamo Bay Bar Association . Sleigh and Robert’s widow Leslie Gensburg will join artist and former inmate Mansoor Adayfi for a panel discussion at Catamount Arts on June 26, moderated by Thompson. Adayfi will participate from Serbia via Zoom.

The exhibition is an expanded version of an earlier exhibition, “Ode to the Sea: The Art of Guantánamo,” whose title refers to a common and poignant theme among many paintings in the collection. Although the prison camp buildings have windows overlooking the Caribbean Sea, they are covered with tarpaulins. Prisoners have only seen the water once, in 2014, when the tarps were removed ahead of a hurricane.

“Anyone who could draw drew the sea,” Adayfi wrote in an op-ed for The New York Times. “(T)he inmates put their dreams, their feelings, their hopes and their lives into (the drawings). The sea means freedom that no one can control or possess, freedom for all.”

The exhibit’s paintings, drawings and collages (one inmate used soap as glue) depict a variety of experiences, perspectives and symbols, including iconic American landmarks, a mother’s watery eye and a visual representation of the symptoms endured since a brain injury suffered during an interrogation. Some works of art are signed by the numbers used to identify detainees rather than their names, and some bear stamps that read “Approved by United States Forces”, signifying clearance for release to attorneys before any works prisoners’ art are considered the property of the US government, destined to be confiscated and destroyed.

The curators of the exhibition hope that this exhibition will highlight the injustices perpetrated against men who have never been convicted or even accused of a crime. “Viewers can make up their own minds about whether the art on display in Catamount’s Fried Family Gallery is dangerous enough to be shredded or burned,” Thompson said, “or whether, like its creators, it should be released. .”

Special thanks are due to the Center for Constitutional Rights, Reprieve US, Beth Jacob and exhibition director Sam Monaco.

An ‘arrogant’ antivaxxer has been sentenced to 21 months in prison for smashing the windows of two Covid vaccination centers with rocks, inflicting £11,000 in damage.

On June 16, Paul Edwards, 58, was found guilty of destroying property at Mold Crown Court.

According to Judge Rhys Rowlands, Paul Edwards had “shown no insight into the devastation caused by your behavior”. He sentenced the anti-vaxxer to 21 months in prison for the harm he caused.

On December 14, he was apprehended by North Wales Police after he smashed five windows at a vaccination clinic near Llandudno Police Station, the court heard.

However, prosecutor Anna Price claimed she vandalized 25 windows in the OpTIC building at St Asaph Industrial Park the following night.

He also just damaged one of the windows of the vaccination center, but he damaged the shops in the park.

The vaccination effort was not hampered in any way.

Edwards, who was defending himself, denied two charges of property damage.

“Both incidents include attacks on society at large,” Judge Rhys Rowlands said.

According to the judge, Edwards had “sincere and firmly held beliefs in official policies and regulations” to protect the people.

He couldn’t, however, break the law to impose his beliefs on those who might have seen the beatings as a lifeline.

Edwards’ behavior, he added, was “arrogant and particularly obnoxious”.

Anna Price, the prosecutor handling the case, said Mr Edwards smashed windows two nights in a row as he targeted coronavirus vaccination centers because he claimed there had been a Paul Edwards (left) arrives at Mold Crown Court where he was found guilty of damaging 30 windows during an anti-vax rampage in December

Judge Rowlands told the defendant: ‘You have shown no idea of ​​the harm your behavior has caused, or its potential to have caused, to vulnerable people.’

“You intended to break into both premises and cause much more damage.”

A security guard was injured by shards of glass during the incident.

Edwards told the jury he tried to obstruct the vaccination program which put the public “in danger”.

He claimed there had been “deliberate alarmism” and that there was “censorship” in Britain.

Communist China had every interest in destabilizing Western society, he argued.

The devastation of one of the buildings attacked by Edwards.  The vaccination center was not prevented from functioning normally

MADRID (AP) — Aurelien Tchouaméni has said nothing is stopping him from fulfilling his dream of playing for Real Madrid. Not even a conversation with Kylian Mbappé.

France’s promising midfielder made his official move to Madrid on Tuesday, saying he had no doubts where he wanted to play despite offers from other clubs and discussing a possible move to Paris Saint-Germain with Mbappé, who recently decided to stay with the French club after showing interest in playing for Madrid.

“Kylian stayed at PSG and he knew I was leaving Monaco, so he wanted to know if I could go to PSG,” Tchouaméni said during his official presentation by Madrid. “But I told him that my first option was always Real Madrid and he understood that perfectly.”

Tchouaméni, 22, has signed a six-year contract with Madrid. He joined Monaco on a fee of up to 100 million euros ($104 million), including variables.

Tchouameni did not specify which other clubs have made offers. He said he was just waiting for Madrid’s call.

“The moment Madrid called I told my agent and the club to find the best deal for everyone,” he said. “I didn’t doubt it for a second. It was my dream. I want to leave my mark in football and Madrid is the best club where I can do that.

Mbappé, Tchouaméni’s France team-mate, has upset Madrid and its supporters after opting out of a free agent move to the Spanish club this season. PSG had already turned down an offer from Madrid last year.

Tchouaméni made his first statements speaking good Spanish, saying he was happy to join “the best club in the world” and have a chance to help them win more titles.

He said he was inspired by the big names in American basketball Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan because “they always gave their all to be able to play at a high level”, and said he would contribute with a good vision of the field, passing, physical strength and ability to regain possession.

Tchouaméni is the latest French player to freshen up Madrid’s aging midfield currently managed by 36-year-old Luka Modric, 32-year-old Toni Kroos and 30-year-old Casemiro.

Real Madrid’s new signing Aurelien Tchouameni speaks during a press conference at the club’s training ground in Madrid, Spain, Tuesday, June 14, 2022.

Last year, Madrid brought in 19-year-old Frenchman Eduardo Camavinga from Rennes, who impressed playing on the bench throughout the season.

The club recently granted Modric a one-year contract extension until June 2023. Kroos’ contract is also good until the end of next season, while Casemiro’s deal is good until June. 2025. The trio have helped Madrid win five Champions League titles in the past nine seasons. , including this year against Liverpool.

“Madrid and their fans always want more, and our goal now is to win a 15th European title,” said Madrid club president Florentino Pérez. “We have a great squad but we know we have a big challenge ahead and we need to add players who are talented and eager to win, so today we bring in a magnificent player who will help us keep improving.”

Pérez thanked Tchouaméni for ‘choosing Madrid over other clubs’.

Another young midfielder in the squad is 23-year-old Federico Valverde, the Uruguay international who has been part of the senior team since 2018.

Tchouaméni has been playing with Monaco since January 2020 after joining Bordeaux.

Other Frenchmen in the Madrid squad are left-back Ferland Mendy and striker Karim Benzema, the team’s best player this season as the club also won the Spanish league and the Spanish Super Cup.

Tchouaméni will wear No. 18, which was Gareth Bale’s number until the Wales international left at the end of the season.

Other players leaving the team include Francisco Isco and veteran Brazilian defender Marcelo, who played 16 seasons and is the player with the most titles with the club, 25.

Lee Mallaghan, who grew up on a small farm as a member of Northern Ireland’s minority Catholic community, was the unlikely savior of one of the great houses of Anglo-Irish ancestry.

Although he made his fortune in invention, engineering and mining, he will probably be best remembered as a businessman who devoted his considerable time, energy and wealth to saving one of Ireland’s grand Palladian mansions, Carton House in Maynooth, Co Kildare.

The ancestral home of the FitzGeralds, Earls of Kildare and Dukes of Leinster – which was once at the center of a 70,000-acre estate across Kildare and Meath – was in a sorry state when he came to the rescue, plowing much of his fortune in the sprawling house, estate, and art treasures.

Carton’s original house was built by the Talbot family of Malahide, on land leased from the FitzGeralds. In 1739 the 19th Earl of Kildare bought out the lease and employed Richard Castle to build a new Palladian mansion on the site.

Castle actually died “on the job” and another big favorite from the Ascendant, Richard Morrison, was later employed to remodel the house.

The 1st Duke of Leinster – father of United Irish patriot Lord Edward FitzGerald, who was executed in 1798 – and his wife Emily completed the house and the FitzGerald family also built Leinster House in Kildare Street, where the houses now stand of the Oireachtas.

Queen Victoria slept in the Chinese Room when she was at Carton in 1899; it remains decorated as it was in 1759.

Princess Grace of Monaco, Tiger Woods and a host of sports stars, from Real Madrid soccer players to Irish rugby greats, were among the guests. Singer Marianne Faithfull lived on the land, in what is called the Shell House, for several years.

Its land also served as the setting for Stanley Kubrick’s 1975 film Barry Lyndonwith Ryan O’Neal.

Michael Lee Mallaghan, known as Lee – whose brother-in-law is former Tyrone football manager Mickey Harte – grew up on a small farm near the nationalist village of Pomeroy in County Tyrone.

Born September 15, 1939, one of nine children, he worked on the family farm and, as a young man, cut grass and picked potatoes. He and his brother Terry “tinkered” with generators and pumps to supply the family farm with electricity and running water.

He found school “a distraction” and after an apprenticeship at a local garage and later engineering firms, he founded Ulster Plant – later renamed Powerscreen International – with his friends Pat O’Neill and Pat Douglas . The company grew from humble beginnings to become a world leader in the manufacture of excavation machinery and became the largest employer in Northern Ireland.

Much of its machinery was used outside Ireland, and the company benefited from the oil boom in the Middle East and other emerging markets. Over the years it has created so many spin-off companies that Pat O’Neill has described it as the “Silicon Valley of heavy equipment”.

Mallaghan has filed over 30 lucrative patents in the unglamorous world of excavation, material screening and recycling. He was always self-effacing, avoiding publicity and personal promotions and continuing to work.

The Mallaghan family acquired Carton House and the estate in 1977.

The house’s survival is all the more miraculous because of the misfortunes of the FitzGeralds, Dukes of Leinster. Of great wealth, position and privilege, Carton and his possession were to pass to the 7th Duke, Edward FitzGerald. But he had given up “his expectations” in 1922 to repay his debts, estimated at more than 16 million euros in current money, to Sir Henry Mallaby-Deeley.

The Duke was forbidden to live in or even visit the house as it was believed that valuable family heirlooms had gone missing. Other family members were allowed to stay, while the Duke ended up in a one-room flat in Westminster, London, where he died in 1976.

In 1949 Carton was sold to a wealthy brewer, Arthur Nall-Cain, 2nd Baron Brocket, for £80,000. He and his son used it as a dairy farm for nearly 30 years, according to Terence Dooley’s book, The Decline and Fall of the Dukes of Leinster: Love, War, Debt and Madness.

For a time the house was rented by Desmond Guinness and his wife Mariga and it was here that in 1957 they founded the Irish Georgian Society, with the aspiration to save houses like Carton.

After selling his stake in Powerscreen International in 1986, Mallaghan and his family moved to Castleknock, Dublin, and embarked on the mammoth €100 million restoration of Carton and the 1,100-acre estate that still stretches from the main street of Maynooth in the countryside, with miles of intact stone walls.

The restoration of Carton House was a colossal undertaking and tested the ingenuity of its new owner.

In 1990 Guinness Enterprise expressed interest in creating a Gleneagles-style resort in Carton in partnership with Mallaghan – who combined his interest in Gaelic football with a passion for golf – but after changes in the company management, the plan never materialized.

Another potential partner, Westin Hotels, decided to pull out of a joint venture in the wake of September 11, 2001, just as a new world-class golf course designed by Colin Montgomerie was about to open. .

“After Westin left, we had a major challenge because we had built-in planning permission,” said Lee’s son, Conor. “We are committed primarily to restoring Carton House as well as building two golf courses.”

A second championship golf course, designed by Mark O’Meara, was opened and luxury homes were also built on part of the estate. The Golfing Union of Ireland has also set up its headquarters there.

In 1999 a group of private investors were brought in to offset some of the costs and in 2017 the house, 144-room hotel and estate were put up for sale for 60 million euros. With the backing of the National Asset Management Agency (Nama), Carton was sold to American businessman John Mullen for 57 million euros, by the Mallaghan family and other investors.

“The Mallaghan family are honored to have had a 40 year association with Carton House and remain extremely proud of the standard of restoration achieved on this magnificent heritage property and estate,” said Conor. It has since undergone another extensive renovation program under the direction of its current owner.

The Mallaghan family’s wealth had also been profitably invested in Cooley Distillery and made a multi-million profit when it was sold to the American company Jim Beam. They have also been involved in other start-ups.

Lee Mallaghan, who received an honorary degree from Maynooth University in 2008 for his contribution to industry and sport, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease six years ago and died on June 6 at the 82 years old.

Gifts at his funeral in Maynooth last Friday included the shirt worn by his All-Ireland winner nephew Peter Harte of Tyrone. He is survived by his wife Mary of 53 years and his children Conor, Bronagh, Deborah and Stephen.

Flavio Briatore has many lives and everything he touches seems to turn to gold. From commercial director of the Benetton group to Formula 1 via restaurants such as Cova and Crazy Pizza, the entrepreneur reveals the secrets of his success.

In an interview with Wall Street Italy, the Monegasque resident confided that his desire to succeed in life came to him in Monaco. During a trip to the Principality with friends, something clicked when you saw the large yachts and their wealthy owners. And he said to his friends, with conviction: “If they succeeded, I don’t see why we should stay in Cuneo. For him, “the experience was a catalyst [for him]”.

Later, he will use the same recipe for all his projects: “you have to have a clear idea and know the market well. (…) You have to have a very strict roadmap and follow it from point A to point Z. (…) All our brands were created with the same philosophy, which is above all a solid and loyal team. It’s the key to success. When it comes to catering, the secret lies in the service. If the service is excellent, the customer will be satisfied. (…) Second, we must always seek to improve and renew ourselves and not take success for granted.

These days, as Flavio Briatore himself admits, after all these successes, “I have everything I need”. However, he still likes to “create new jobs” and new places if they are “useful to society as a whole”.
