Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 1 ottobre 2022

Last week, protests erupted in the streets of Iran after 22-year-old Mahsa Amini died while in the custody of Tehran’s “morality police.” She had been accused of violating the strict Islamic dress codes imposed on women, which include the requirement of covering one’s hair with a hijab. No one is more familiar with the perils of being a woman under conservative Islamic values than Yasmine Mohammed, who tells her story of escaping Islamic extremism in Unveiled: How Western Liberals Empower Radical Islam.Today’s release on The Best of Making Sense feed is #175 “Leaving the Faith.” Sam speaks with Yasmine Mohammed about her family background and indoctrination into conservative Islam, the double standard that Western liberals use when thinking about women in the Muslim community, the effects of Islamic dress codes on women, and many other topics. Yasmine Mohammed is a human rights activist and writer. She advocates for the rights of women living within Islamic majority countries, as well as those who struggle under religious fundamentalism. She is the founder of Free Hearts Free Minds, an organization that provides psychological support for ex-Muslims living within Muslim majority countries.

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 25 aprile 2021

By Rob Reid and Sam Harris.In this nearly 4-hour SPECIAL EPISODE, Rob Reid delivers a 100-minute monologue (broken up into 4 segments, and interleaved with discussions with Sam) about the looming danger of a man-made pandemic, caused by an artificially-modified pathogen. The risk of this occurring is far higher and nearer-term than almost anyone realizes.Rob explains the science and motivations that could produce such a catastrophe and explores the steps that society must start taking today to prevent it. These measures are concrete, affordable, and scientifically fascinating—and almost all of them are applicable to future, natural pandemics as well. So if we take most of them, the odds of a future Covid-like outbreak would plummet—a priceless collateral benefit.Rob Reid is a podcaster, author, and tech investor, and was a long-time tech entrepreneur. His After On podcast features conversations with world-class thinkers, founders, and scientists on topics including synthetic biology, super-AI risk, Fermi’s paradox, robotics, archaeology, and lone-wolf terrorism. Science fiction novels that Rob has written for Random House include The New York Times bestseller Year Zero, and the AI thriller After On. As an investor, Rob is Managing Director at Resilience Reserve, a multi-phase venture capital fund. He co-founded Resilience with Chris Anderson, who runs the TED Conference and has a long track record as both an entrepreneur and an investor. In his own entrepreneurial career, Rob founded and ran Listen.com, the company that created the Rhapsody music service.

FRESCO: Residenze Artistiche SENSE

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 22 agosto 2018

Sorbo San Basile (Cz) 23 Agosto – 01 Settembre 2018 Museo MABOS terzo appuntamento dal titolo “Fresco” Finissage 1 Settembre 2018 ore 16:00. Il 23 agosto 2018 inizierà la residenza di tre artisti, Giuseppe Ferrise, Meri Tancredi e Michela Tobiolo, in parallelo alla residenza del critico d’arte Antonio Di Cori. Tre artisti molto differenti con in comune, in questa esperienza, lo stretto contatto con gli elementi naturali seppur estrapolati dai contorni tipici e rielaborati con una nuova concezione contemporanea. Colori, luci, canti rituali, animali fiabeschi e tanto altro ancora avrà il piacere di analizzare il critico d’arte in residenza.
Ferrise, sculture lametino, vive fin dalla nascita in una casa di campagna circondata da un folto bosco. Da questo bosco prendono vita le sue creature fatte da materiale di riciclo naturale. Rafia, corteccia, pietra e foglie prendono vita diventando ipertrofiche creature, giocose e a tratti inquietanti. In residenza svilupperà un’opera relativa alla serie degli animali fiabeschi che ci osserverà passare, dall’alto.
Tancredi, artista perugina, si esprime attraverso vari linguaggi di espressione come pittura, scultura, installazioni e video-audio installazioni. Durante la residenza al Mabos lavorerà sugli aspetti cognitivi legati al concetto di limite (percezione – memoria – sconfinamento) confrontarsi con essi per analizzarli e restituirne una visione personale tramite la fusione di elementi naturali e materiali artefatti.
Tobiolo, artista pescarese, è in costante ricerca di connessione con la magia, lontana dalla semplice razionalità, fatta di intuito, istinto, meraviglia, sogno e intuizioni, che tiene vicini al significato più profondo di noi stessi, e dell’universo. Nella residenza Fresco cercherà una connessione tra la terra ed il cielo passando però per il mare con un’installazione scultorea ed un atto rituale.
Nella residenza Sense: Fresco gli artisti, come già avvenuto per le precedenti due residenze Sense, verranno scrupolosamente analizzati da un critico d’arte. In questo appuntamento sarà Antonio Di Cori che si immergerà nel loro mondo, nei loro pensieri, nelle loro abitudini. Li vedrà lavorare, riflettere, dialogare e creare. Dalle residenze ogni sera De Cori ci racconterà la sua esperienza da critico nei “Diari Critici del Mabos” che saranno online, sul canale YouTube e sui canali social, tutte le sere della residenza alle ore 22:00. Nella giornata di chiusura della residenza presenterà gli artisti e le opere ed i testi saranno presentati successivamente nel catalogo annuale del museo a gennaio 2019.
Il finissage della residenza Fresco, sabato 1 Settembre ore 16:00, si concluderà con la conferenza di presentazione dell’esperienza di residenza e la passeggiata con gli artisti che mostreranno le opere prodotte.
