first_imgJanuary 22, 20192019 is off to a great start at the Cosanti Foundation. We’re very excited to be announcing that we have officially brought on long-time Arizona resident and outdoor enthusiast Patti Baynham as our Interim Director of Finance!Patti will be a boon to the Cosanti foundation and the work that we do at Arcosanti. She brings to the table decades worth of experience as a businessperson and financial manager. You can read about that experience, her love of nonprofit work, and what keeps her here in Arizona in her bio below.We hope you’ll join us in offering Patti a warm to the Cosanti Foundation Team!When a new resident of Arizona, I was quickly introduced to a number of iconic elements of the state, including Cosanti and Arcosanti. Work took me away, but a Grand Canyon river rafting trip lured me back to stay. Arcosanti had never ceased to intrigue me. Little did I know how much stronger my ties to The Cosanti Foundation would become years after that first introduction!With a Masters in International Management from Thunderbird School of Global Management, I left Arizona to work for Sherwin-Williams. There I gained invaluable experience as an auditor, factory controller, and director of accounting and financial planning. While with Sherwin-Williams I became a Certified Public Accountant (CPA).Six years later that rafting trip changed the course of my life. Computer technology was beginning to infiltrate everyday activities, and I went to work for Intel in Chandler. Taking on responsibilities in production planning, materials management, information technology, and project management broadened my travel and business acumen extensively.Ending more than 17 years with Intel, I returned to school to learn about creating wildlife habitat with desert-adapted plants. Soon after graduating I stumbled across an opportunity to become CFO of Boyce Thompson Arboretum in Superior, Arizona. This would allow me to leverage prior professional experiences while learning more about desert plants and wildlife habitat! That role solidified my appreciation and understanding of the need for robust financial management in not-for-profit organizations. I am delighted now to be working with The Cosanti Foundation to help strengthen financial management tools and processes that will underpin the Foundation’s future growth.As a footnote, the life-changing decision I made after our Grand Canyon rafting trip seemed a bit crazy at the time, but I knew it was the right thing to do. In addition to being deeply rooted in Arizona in other ways, I am married to our river guide from that trip!last_img read more


first_imgBy Marina Christofides Book review of The Icon Hunter by Tasoula Hadjitofi On 8 October 1997, 70 Bavarian police officers raided an apartment in Munich belonging to a Turkish antiquities smuggler, Aydin Dikmen. Hidden behind false walls and double ceilings, they found a massive horde of religious artefacts most of which had been looted from the occupied part of Cyprus after 1974.The discovery was the result of a sting, the largest European art trafficking sting since World War II, initiated and orchestrated by a remarkable Cypriot woman, Tasoula Hadjitofi, a refugee from Famagusta, successful entrepreneur and longtime honorary consul for Cyprus in The Hague.The Icon Hunter is her powerful memoir in which she describes her mission to repatriate Cyprus’ lost treasures on behalf of the Church of Cyprus. It became her raison d’etre, a lifetime quest and her way of regaining justice for Cyprus and for what she herself had lost as a result of the Turkish invasion.Tasoula was also behind the successful repatriation of the Kanakaria mosaics. She was the one who encouraged the late Archbishop Chrysostomos I to sue the American art dealer Peg Goldberg for their return which ended in a landmark court ruling for the global art trade. The mosaics were finally returned in 1991.Some of the artefacts seized in Aydin Dikmen’s apartmentTogether with the archbishop, who trusted her completely, she fought almost obsessively for the return of various religious items from Cyprus, often unsuccessfully as in the case of the ‘royal doors’ from the church of Peristerona, which was bought by the Kanazawa College of Art in Japan.Her memoir tells how Michel Van Rijn, a notorious art dealer and middle man between Dikmen and art buyers, first made her aware in 1988 of the cultural cleansing that was occurring in Cyprus, when he tried to sell her information on Cyprus’ lost treasures. Having fallen out with Dikmen and fearing for his life, Van Rijn’s game was to turn informer and get Dikmen before Dikmen got him.Art trafficking is big business. Estimated to be worth several billion dollars a year, it is third in profitability after illegal arms and drug trades. Not surprising that in her passion to protect Cyprus’ cultural heritage, not only did her business and family suffer, but Tasoula may also have been endangering her own life.Pitting her wits against the dealers, she managed to find ways round loopholes in the law that had allowed them to legitimise the sale of illicit property. For example, when Cyprus wouldn’t invoke the Convention for the Protection of Cultural Heritage in the Event of Armed Conflict (the Hague Protocol), she tried to get Greece to invoke it instead in order to get the return of an icon stolen from the monastery of Antiphonitis which a Greek, who lived in Switzerland, had purchased from Sotheby’s. The church began a civil case against the Greek. No one thought to invoke the Hague Protocol. Tasoula persuaded the archbishop to contact the president of Greece and ask him to do so arguing how could Greece ask the British for the return of the Parthenon Marbles and yet deny invoking the protocol for Cyprus? Likewise, how can Cyprus ask for the protocol to be invoked to get back the artefacts in Holland, yet not demand the same of Greece?Apostle Thadeos,one of the 6th century mosaics stolen from Kanakaria and returned in 1991In March 2013 Cyprus got back 173 artifacts from the Munich sting and two icons from another ongoing case. Another 34 artefacts were returned two years later. Sadly, 49 others had to be auctioned off because of insufficient proof of provenance, the result of disorganisation on the part of the church in documenting what they had and lack of communication between government departments.Aydin DikmenAs if fighting the dealers wasn’t enough, Tasoula also found herself up against petty Cypriot office politics. “Success has many fathers,” the archbishop told her, as government departments tried to take the credit for the sting. The delay they caused trying to sideline her and following wrong tactics meant the repatriation almost didn’t happen as the statute of limitations was running out.After Cyprus joined the EU and opened an embassy in The Hague, she was summarily dismissed from honorary consul. She believes that this was because the new ambassador felt she overshadowed him. She continued to search for Cyprus’ treasures as the representative of the church, but gradually realised that she was not on the same page as the Cypriot authorities.Tasoula’s purpose was to recover the artefacts and bring them home. The attorney-general’s purpose was to prosecute Dikmen. He wasted precious time trying to extradite Dikmen to Cyprus where he would have faced a maximum two-year sentence for theft, something that would have been difficult to prove. Instead Dikmen could have been prosecuted immediately in Germany where he faced a maximum 15-year sentence. They could have negotiated with him to release the artefacts to Cyprus in exchange for a lesser sentence, as Tasoula wanted.The Icon Hunter describes how the attorney-general and his people foolishly made Van Rijn aware that they needed his testimony and cooperation in order to prosecute. Without documentation and proof of what Munich artefacts belonged to Cyprus, the stolen items could not be repatriated. Van Rijn was able to play them and ask for more and more money, getting them to turn against Tasoula, despite her repeated warnings that he was not to be trusted. Their actions almost caused the artefacts to be lost forever and is a sorry chapter on the state of affairs on our island.When the artefacts were finally returned to Cyprus, 16 years after the sting, neither church (Archbishop Chrysostomos I had by then died) nor state invited her to welcome home what she had worked to achieve for almost 30 years.Tasoula Hadjitofi’s lifetime mission has been to repatriate Cyprus’ lost treasuresNot willing to let her life’s work go to waste, she has since turned her attention globally, taking the lessons she learned from Cyprus and sharing them with the rest of the world.She launched Cultural Crime Watchers Worldwide (CCWW) and set up Walk of Truth, a non-governmental organisation whose mission is to engage the public over the importance of protecting and preserving cultural heritage in areas of conflict and rallies legislators and politicians to strengthen laws around art trafficking.Many of Cyprus’ treasures are still missing and may never surface. Unfortunately the exquisite mosaic of Saint Andreas from the Kanakaria church is amongst them. Chances of it ever being found are slim, especially as the statute of limitations is running out. True to form, Tasoula writes that she will not rest till she finds it and has made it a symbol of missing or looted works of art worldwide. Marina Christofides is the author of the award-winning illustrated history of Cyprus, The Island Everyone Wanted and The Traitors’ Club, a memoir on the Cyprus problem. Both books are available online from her website and main bookshops islandwide. You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

Indian Express App More Top NewsNew Delhi: Army chief General Bipin Rawat has given a thumbs up to the strategic partnership (SP) model rolled out by the government to rope in leading private players for defence production calling it a "big ticket" move to push modernisation of India’s armed forces General Rawat said the new model is expected to fast track army’s modernisation plan as it will bring new technologies and help implement major military manufacturing projects The army has been pressing for updating its weapons systems considering the evolving security scenario in the region and General Rawat said the SP model will help the army in replacing its ageing fleet of tanks and critical weapons "The strategic partnership model is a big ticket thing It will help the modernisation of armed forces We have to gradually think of replacing our tanks In the next seven to eight years some of our old systems will have to be replaced It is good to start the process now Because for production to take place you need time" the army chief told PTI in a recent interaction File image of the army chief General Bipin Rawat PTI Under the new model the government will allow Indian private sector companies to form joint ventures with foreign defence majors to build fighter aircraft helicopters submarines and main battle tanks in India Referring to the army’s modernisation programme General Rawat expressed happiness over its progress and referred to arrival of two ultra light howitzers from the US and also about the Dhanush 155mm artillery gun developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) "The modernisation programme is moving It is on fast track It cannot happen overnight It is a process" he said adding the artillery modernisation programme was going on "very very well" After a 30-year wait for new artillery guns since the Bofors scandal the army last month received the first two howitzers from the US as part of an order for 145 long-range guns General Rawat said modernisation of the armed forces must be a continuous process adding the Navy and the Air Force are going to benefit significantly from the SP model "Modernisation is a process which must continue and must happen at all times You will always have some equipment in the army which is reaching the stage of obsolescence" he said Talking about the need to look for new technology for the Army he said "You keep getting future technology and future technology becomes current and the current will become obsolete It is a cycle" The government unveiled the much-awaited SP model last week which is aimed at setting up world-class production facilities in India to manufacture submarines fighter jets and battle tanks Asked about his recent comments that the armed forces are not getting their due share of resources General Rawat said he made the remarks as the defence budget was little less than expected but added that the SP model will offset the shortage "The government is going ahead with the SP model It is also going for government-to-government contracts (for military procurement) These steps will help us" General Rawat said Last month the army chief lamented that the spending on defence is considered a "burden" by many in the country and the military is not getting its due share India’s defence budget for 2017-18 was Rs 274 lakh crore which is 163 percent of the GDP China’s defence budget is close to three percent of its GDP There has been a rising concernamong security experts and the defence establishment that the modernisation of armed forces is taking place at a very slow pace and that the government has not been allocating adequate funds for it in the last few years Asked about the report of the committee headed by

Delhi: If the former Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit could do with Rs 24 crore allocation to project her government’s schemes and achievements why would the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government need Rs 526 crore for the same job Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal PTI While the opposition has slammed the Delhi government for hiking the advertising and publicity budget by 2200 percent over the previous budget the AAP has claimed the move as a step towards bringing ‘transparency’ in the spending on government advertisements "Going by the core principles of the AAP it’s extremely disappointing to see the way the Delhi government has been trying to gain publicity through TV and radio advertisements The TV ad that projects Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as a demigod is obnoxious Delhi’s Law minister Kapil Mishra informed me that the publicity budgets of all the departments have been clubbed together making the cumulative figure look bigger But that still doesn’t justify Rs 526 crore budget I’m going to ask how this amount will be spent and under what heads" AAP MLA from Timarpur Pankaj Pushkar told Firstpost A former CAG official who had earlier audited Delhi government’s account told Firstpost on condition of anonymity "The previous Congress government had a budgetary provisioning of Rs 10 crore for publicity which was increased to Rs 24 crore during the Commonwealth Games What justification could there be of going for a 2200% percent hike During audits it had been found that under the garb of publicity and releasing advertisements the departments illegally earn money through ‘cuts’ from private players like for putting up hoardings etc ’20 to 30 percent commission’ is demanded Now it needs to be seen how the present government works on Rs 526 crore provisioning" Both the opposition and senior counsel Prashant Bhushan have termed the advertisements released on TV and radio as ‘violation of the Supreme Court’s order’ Leader of Opposition Vijendra Gupta said "The increase of budget on information and publicity by 2200% followed by projecting Kejriwal as a messiah in a recent TV ad violates the order of the Supreme Court" According to the Supreme Court guidelines political parties and leaders have been barred from using government advertisements to their advantage – ‘to avoid the misuse of public funds for plugging the ruling party and glorifying politicians’ It further said that the government should use money on publicity for dissemination of information and suggested that the photographs of the President the Prime Minister and the Chief Justice of India should be allowed on government ads Prashant Bhushan has reportedly said that he would file a contempt petition in the Supreme Court against parties violating the order against promotion of political parties and leaders using public money AAP spokesperson Raghav Chadha said "We’re not denying that there has been a hike in the information and publicity budget over the previous year But this time the publicity amount of all the departments have been clubbed together under a single head so that the spending could be audited Due to this reason the provisioning appears to a big one and the issue has unnecessarily been hyped The objective is to bring greater transparency in allocation vis-à-vis expenditure" A senior Delhi government official added "Earlier barring the autonomous bodies different government departments used funds individually for dissemination of information and publicity by routing it through the publicity department Now they won’t be able to do so as all those funds have been brought under one roof Proper audit of funds used in publicity purpose will be done" By: Express News Service | Published: June 24 2016 12:12 am Enabling measures include additional incentives for duty drawback schemes for garments flexibility in labour laws to increase productivity as well as tax and production incentives for job creation in garment manufacturing (Source: Express photo by Oinam Anand/ file) Top News The NDA government’s announcement of a special package worth Rs 6000 crore for the textiles and apparel sector is welcome The government hopes to create one crore new jobs in three years and attract investments of $11 billion while generating $30 billion in exports It is hard to say how many of these targets will be met yet the measures are a step in the right direction Trouble is however that most of what is being done today may be almost two decades too late The story of the Indian textiles industry is one where a whole generation’s well-being was compromised through misguided policy In the misplaced bid to retain the small-scale character of traditional handlooms Indian policymakers ruled out fast domestic industrial expansion — all garments they mandated must remain within the so-called small scale sector So as the world and especially India’s competitors such as China Vietnam and later on Bangladesh built up massive capacities to meet global demand India was stuck with debilitating rules and regulations By 2005 when trade quotas were relaxed India was in no shape to take advantage of freer trading norms It is no surprise then that as against India’s share of 31 per cent in the global garment industry China’s is around 35 per cent and even Bangladesh has 60 per cent more share than India The package announced on Wednesday does away with a lot of red tape to reduce costs both in terms of time and money and would enable Indian manufacturers to improve competitiveness Enabling measures include additional incentives for duty drawback schemes for garments flexibility in labour laws to increase productivity as well as tax and production incentives for job creation in garment manufacturing There are changes which allow those earning less than Rs 15000 to forgo the employees provident fund This would leave people with more disposable income Further to bring down the costs for businesses the government has also pitched in to pay the employer’s contribution to the EPF in other cases While these measures will help far more needs to be done if India wants to corner a large part of the market share that China may relinquish China like most countries before it such as Japan or Korea has reached a stage where factor costs have increased and this is forcing it to opt for

presented Pannikar isn’t among the directors who can sit among the audience “I am active behind the curtains” he says Lately he has been trying to change “I have started sitting and relaxing among the audience but it is difficult to go away from a play” he says His new play Chhaya Shakuntalam opened the Bharat Rang Mahotsav the annual drama festival of the Delhi-based National School of Drama on January 4 Another play Sangamaniyam on gender concerns is on the anvil Excerpts from an interview: From Kalidas’s romantic classic Abhijnana Shakuntalam how did you create a play about the art of governance In the play king Dushyanta is shown as being answerable to his people Chhaya Shakuntalam is a retelling of Kalidas’s text by the famous Hindi poet Udayan Vajpeyi We have adapted it so that Dushyanta represents the establishment When the people prepare the ground for his hunting they think he is merely hunting deer or mrigaya and they are alright with it But mrigaya has another meaning — it refers to a search In this case king Dushyanta forgets his royal duties in his search of Shakuntala his mind is wavering like silk in the wind and he forgets his responsibilities That’s when the people come on stage pointing their fingers at him and saying “here is a king who has strayed” A ruler must always keep his duties towards his people in mind You have revisited Kalidas in another new play The play is called Sangamaniyam and it has also been written with Udayan Vajpeyi — he wrote in Hindi and I in Malayalam This one unites all three heroines of Kalidas — Shakuntala Malaviya and Urvashi All three purusha or men are also present but as one embodiment because all of them are trying to inflict some kind of injustice on women Shakuntala represents the meek woman while Urvashi is Damini or lighting Malaviya is a bridge between the two — both meek and bold Each heroine represents one facet of nature they are prakriti The men cannot be true purusha until they respect prakriti

Borussia Dortmund which has sellout crowds of more than 80000 for Bundesliga games at Westfalenstadion “Of course Borussia Dortmund could increase the price of their tickets but they don’t do it Although we have this policy with our clubs we were still able to gain over 3 billion euros overall” he said German clubs also profited indirectly from the Premier League’s new TV deal leading to inflated transfer fees Transfer income was up some 300 million euros on the year before with 532 million euros accounting for more than 16 percent of revenue Five transfers alone accounted for more than 180 million euros “A really impressive number” Seifert said “We cannot ignore transfer income any more” Powerhouse Bayern Munich overshadows the rest of the league with a record turnover of 627 million euros in 2015-16 well ahead of Dortmund on almost 377 million Darmstadt was the smallest in the top flight with turnover of 415 million euros Bayern’s dominance – the club is on course to win an unprecedented fifth straight Bundesliga – is not yet a worry for the league despite concerns from abroad that it may be getting uncompetitive “From today’s perspective it’s not yet a problem because in Borussia Dortmund we have a very interesting club high-profile that plays fascinating football in a great atmosphere” Seifert said “If Bayern Munich wins the title 10 or 15 times in a row then it will become a problem but we are not yet in this situation I think that all other Bundesliga clubs know that they will be able to compete with Bayern Munich but this is not something the league can influence directly We can see that there’s a need to invest money in a good way” The Bundesliga leads the major European leagues in goals scored with an average of 29 goals per game since
