Using language as a portal to the depths of cultural heritage

first_imgAlaska Native Arts & Culture | Arts & Culture | Education | History | Southcentral | University of AlaskaUsing language as a portal to the depths of cultural heritageDecember 5, 2015 by Jenny Neyman, KDLL Share:What do a person, a dog, a shaman effigy and a crucifix have in common?To a traditional Dena’ina speaker, all four are in a linguistic classification that categorizes them as sharing a similar essence.“In Dena’ina thought, what’s common is they are all animate, they are all alive, they all have a soul,” says anthropology professor Alan Boaraas.The idea doesn’t quite translate to English. It’s a facet of culture embedded in language, as subconscious as the grammatical structure a baby learns as they absorb the dialogue around them,” Boraas says.“What is it that’s embedded in the grammar of a language, Dena’ina in this case, that conveys a message, a point of view, a feeling, that is difficult put into English? And often is lost, as they say, in translation.”The problem of “lost in translation” is much more significant than just ordering something you didn’t quite expect in a foreign restaurant.“The relationship between language and how you organize the world is subconscious as you learn language, and would become what we sometimes call human nature, which is why one culture’s human nature is not another culture’s human nature, because the language is different. You can argue all you want what human language is, but it really has to do with how you understand the grammar of the language as a filter for the world.”Dena’ina elder Peter Kalifornsky and anthropologist Dr. Alan Boaraas. (Courtesy of the University of Alaska Anchorage)So for a Native Athabascan of the Cook Inlet region, Dena’ina isn’t just the language of their people, it is a portal to the full depths of their cultural heritage.And that portal has almost been lost.According to anthropologists, Dena’ina has been one of the world’s most endangered languages, with just a handful of speakers left by the 1970s. But Boraas and linguist James Kari started working with a few of the remaining fluent elders to preserve the language, making recordings of the speakers, translating stories and turning the oral tradition into a written language.All that knowledge has coalesced into a curriculum for language classes, such as a beginning Dena’ina class taught this fall at the Kenai Peninsula College. Another class on grammar will be offered this spring.Share this story:last_img read more

But too often, it is drowned out by the bad behaviour of the few – bad behaviour that has stained the Square Mile. The idea of City Giving Day is to redress that balance and promote the activities that firms do to help people across London. “If we can get people to talk more loudly about what they’re doing for good causes, then maybe more people will get involved. We should take pride in all that this City stands for.” Of course, it wouldn’t be a real City do without an after party. Yarrow finished the day by presenting the awards at the Lord Mayor’s Dragon Awards, celebrating more good work in the Square Mile, at Mansion House. Happy City Giving Day, everyone!  BIG BUSINESS AND CORBYNITES BOTH GET DIVERSITY AWARDSAt last, hard-left activists and London’s biggest corporations have found something they can bond over – inclusion in the workplace. Bosses from big businesses rubbed shoulders with an eclectic crowd last night at the European Diversity Awards, as they battled it out for brownie points for working towards stamping out inequality in the workplace, with many City big-wigs getting gongs for their commitment to improving their firm’s diversity. Fiona Cannon, director of diversity and inclusion at Lloyds Banking Group, was named Diversity Champion of the Year for campaigning for a wider range of employees from all back­grounds, while a top award was also handed to Corbynite journalist Owen Jones at the prestigious event in London’s Natural History museum. Over 600 guests attended the event, presented by TV personality and former Pop Idol presenter Nicki Chapman. PwC scooped the Most Inclusive Employer accolade, while HSBC, picked up the Diversity Team of the Year award. Perhaps there is some common ground to be found between Capitalists and Corbynistas after all.  by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailGameday NewsNASCAR Drivers Salaries Finally ReleasedGameday NewsSwift VerdictChrissy Metz, 39, Shows Off Massive Weight Loss In Fierce New PhotoSwift VerdictPost FunKate & Meghan Are Very Different Mothers, These Photos Prove ItPost FunMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity Weekzenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comBridesBlushThis Is Why The Royal Family Kept Quiet About Prince Harry’s Sister BridesBlushEquity MirrorThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryEquity MirrorTheFashionBallAlica Schmidt Is The Most Beautiful Athlete To ExistTheFashionBall Share Lord Mayor tours London firms on City Giving Day last_img read more

Gender diversity boosts corporate performance: report

Keywords Corporate governance,  Women Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Pandemic job losses hit women harder than men, StatsCan says Already suffering, working women face tougher future The study also found that when economic growth was relatively robust, there was little difference in share price performance between companies with, and without, women on the board. However, since the 2008 financial crisis, and the subsequent deterioration in the macro environment, stocks with women on the board have strongly outperformed those without any woman on the board. The report says that that the causation between greater gender diversity and improved profitability goes beyond the pre-existing strength of the company; refuting what some academics have argued, suggesting that there is no causation between more women on the board and greater profitability. It says evidence suggests that greater diversity can lead to better average performance, as this draws from a deeper talent pool, includes a better mix of leadership skills, and improves corporate governance and risk aversion. The inclusion of more women may also better reflect the companies’ customers. Stefano Natella, co-head of securities research & analytics, said, “This in-depth study provides investors with striking evidence that greater gender diversity is a valuable additional metric to consider when evaluating investments. The results of our analysis are irrefutable and for the first time offer a global view of this topic and a compelling explanation of why gender diversity adds value.” New research finds that large-cap companies with at least one woman on their board have outperformed their peers with no women on the board over the last six years. According to a report released Tuesday by Credit Suisse Research Institute, companies with at least one woman on the board have outperformed in terms of share price performance, exhibit higher return on equity, lower leverage and higher valuations.

Big four dominate investment banking in Canada: Greenwich

first_img Related news Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Keywords Investment banking,  Investment dealers Pot company must pay dealer, court finds James Langton Greenwich’s survey of large Canadian companies found that between 58% and 61% say they have important relationships with these banks for M&A advisory services and equity capital markets. BMO and RBC are the “quality leaders” in equity capital markets, Greenwich says, while all four firms share that title in M&A advice. “These banks provide such high levels of service and intense coverage that, when large Canadian companies rotate their business in these functions, it is generally to another provider within the Big Four,” says Greenwich Associates consultant Jay Bennett. “In equity capital markets, companies have clear opinions about who provides the best analyst research coverage, and because BMO and RBC are so highly regarded in that space, the firms get a consistent lift.” On the debt side, Greenwich says that RBC is the clear leader, with 66% of large Canadian companies and government agencies saying they have important relationships with the firm. RBC also ranks as the “quality leader” for the debt underwriting. “RBC stands out for across-the-board quality to corporate, financial and government issuers, but because all of these banks provide robust distribution corporate, issuers often rotate their business among them as a means of rewarding credit providers,” says Bennett. Scotia and CIBC are tied for second place at 54%-55% market penetration on the debt side; and, BMO Capital Markets and TD Securities are tied for third with relationship penetration scores of about 50%, it says. The firm also reports that approximately 53% of large Canadian companies use RBC Capital Markets for cash management services, ranking it first in this business too. Scotia “has also built a particularly strong presence in the upper end of this market”, Greenwich says, with 49% penetration; followed by BMO and TD, which are tied at 40%, and CIBC at 34%. Greenwich reports that all of the big Canadian banks are investing to build out the technology platforms supporting their international cash management business in order to compete with major Wall Street firms such as Citi, HSBC and Bank of America Merrill Lynch in this business. The firm says that those firms have been making gains in the Canadian cash management market on the basis of their strong international capabilities. “Of all the foreign competitors, HSBC also performs best in domestic Canadian cash management,” says Greenwich Associates consultant Peter Kane.center_img Morgan Stanley shutters Calgary office: report Goldman Sachs’ profits more than double, despite pandemic The big bank-owned investment dealers continue to dominate the Canadian investment banking business, according to new research from Greenwich Associates. The firm reports that four of the big integrated dealers — BMO Capital Markets, CIBC World Markets, RBC Capital Markets, and Scotia Capital — are deadlocked atop the Canadian investment banking market share league tables.

St. Thomas Parish Council Refurbishes Old Building for Council Meetings

Our first infrastructure meeting will be held on the first Wednesday of April and we are hoping that it will be completed by that time,” Mayor Spencer added.Meanwhile, Secretary Manager of the Parish Council, Clinton Gordon, told JIS News that some $3.2 million was needed to refurbish the structure. He said the Council hoped to receive assistance from the Ministry of Local Government and Environment in financing the project.“We have submitted estimates to the Minister and have started preliminary works towards refurbishing the structure, so we could have meetings inside there. This is an interim arrangement until we have discussions on a new office for the Council,” Mr. Gordon said, adding that the Council has so far spent some $1 million on the project.Major works on the building include the replacement of windows, doors, flooring and roof, as well as the installation of electrical fittings and the general clean-up of the surroundings. Additionally, he said, a new sewerage system and bathroom facilities would be installed.“We have written to the National Contracts Commission requesting waivers from the normal procurement procedures for goods and services so we could get the work done in quick time,” Mr. Gordon informed.The Secretary Manager noted that the building would not only be a meeting place for Councillors but would also be used as a venue for training sessions organized by the Parish Council.

Charitable Groups Urged to File Outstanding Documents

first_imgRelatedCharitable Groups Urged to File Outstanding Documents FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Companies Office of Jamaica (COJ) is urging charitable groups to file outstanding documents to ensure compliance with the Companies Act and to prevent their businesses from being removed from the register.“The issue of removal has serious implications for these companies,” said Business Registration Manager at the COJ, Camille Neil.She noted that most of these companies “have assets whether land, building, a vehicle, which is in the company’s name and once the company is removed from the register, the company no longer holds these assets.”Miss Neil, who was addressing a recent JIS Think Tank at the agency’s Kingston headquarters, explained that when companies are removed from the COJ’s register, ownership of the assets is held by the Government on trust for 20 years, during which time, the company may make an application to be restored to the register.The COJ is currently offering a special three-month amnesty to allow charitable groups to file outstanding documents at reduced fees of between 50 and 75 per cent.The amnesty, which is being offered for the period September 1 to November 30, applies to groups and entities such as churches, charities, service clubs, non-profit organisations, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), and professional associations.Outstanding documents refer to annual returns, income and expenditure statements, Change of Directors , Change of Address, Appointment of Secretary and Statutory Declaration.Meanwhile, Chief Executive Officer of the COJ, Judith Ramlogan, stressed the need for the various groups to take advantage of the amnesty.She informed that during the three-month period, amnesty transactions will be conducted Mondays to Thursdays between 8:30 a.m. and noon at the COJ head office at 1 Grenada Way in New Kingston.A drop-off box is available for deposits outside of these hours and special arrangements have been put in place such as a designated waiting area for customers with amnesty transactions.For further details on the amnesty for charities, call the COJ at 908-4419-24 or email: [email protected] Charitable Groups Urged to File Outstanding Documents CommerceSeptember 21, 2009 RelatedCharitable Groups Urged to File Outstanding Documentscenter_img Advertisements RelatedCharitable Groups Urged to File Outstanding Documentslast_img read more

Operation Santa helps Woodland’s K-4 students celebrate the holidays despite the pandemic

first_imgThe event was created to provide students and staff with a little of the holiday magic missing due to the COVID-19 pandemicWOODLAND — Using a combination of holiday magic along with teamwork throughout the district, Woodland Public Schools’ three elementary schools created Operation Santa, an event created to provide students and staff with a little of the holiday magic missing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.North Fork Elementary School Principal Denise Pearl and Columbia Elementary Principal David Starkey along with Elementary Assistant Principal Darcy Soto wanted to do something special for their students before the holiday break. Operation Santa helped Woodland's K-4 students celebrate the holidays despite the pandemic.

Photo courtesy of Woodland School District“Our students have been working so hard, and with virtual learning, many of them have missed out on the holiday fun that happens at the elementary level,” said Starkey. “We wanted to do something to remind them that we care about them, love them, and support them.”Principal Pearl agreed, “Usually, the last week of school before vacation is filled with holiday activities and celebrations which our virtual students were going to miss out on this year,” she said. “Usually, Santa visits our holiday concerts, so we wanted to find a way to still celebrate with our students, even if we couldn’t have them in school.”Enter Operation Santa Claus. “When Phillip Pearson, our high school principal, heard we wanted to do something, he reached out and told us about this idea he did in a previous district,” said Starkey. “Along with the help and support of the entire district, we created Operation Santa Claus.”Students and their families drove up to the entrance of their school where they were greeted by Superintendent Michael “Santa Claus” Green along with principals dressed as elves and teachers in full holiday attire. While still strictly practicing social distancing and wearing masks, Santa greeted each student and gave them a new book donated by the Scholastic Corporation and a candy cane. In addition, Facilities Director Scott Landrigan donated lights and decorations to cover the schools in holiday cheer.Teachers and staff from throughout the district volunteered to help Operation Santa become reality.

We have to do this every year!’”At North Fork Elementary, students lined up to see the show. “The turnout was better than expected with traffic out to the street for nearly the full two hours we ran the event,” said Pearl. “Our students were full of smiles and so excited to see their students.” Yale Elementary School even had a pet goose show up who wanted to meet Santa.All involved point to the support of the district as a whole for making the event happen. “We had volunteers including district office staff, teachers from other schools, instructional assistants, and custodians who all wrapped gifts for our students,” said Starkey. “The entire event was a true team effort and I could not be more proud of our team at Woodland Public Schools.”Woodland Public Schools Superintendent Michael Green took on the mantle of Santa Claus.
