Princess Grace Foundation-USA CEO Brisa Trinchero said, “We are thrilled to bring Princess Grace Award winner Cary Joji Fukunaga's most high profile film to Monaco. He represents all for which a Princess Grace Award winner stands–an exceptional artist with boundless capacity. During Her lifetime, Princess Grace brought the glamour of Hollywood to Monaco. We are delighted to be carrying on Her legacy with this extraordinary event. We are also grateful to HSH Prince Albert ll of Monaco for opening up His home to host this extraordinary event that will help create a new scholarship to assist future emerging filmmakers.”
Cary Joji Fukunaga said, “Becoming part of the Princess Grace Awards family has been incredible. I received a scholarship that helped propel my career in a multitude of ways. Several years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Sir Roger Moore in Monaco when I received my second Princess Grace Award–I never would have imagined that just five years later I would be helming No Time To Die.”
Earthquake forecast for Puerto Rico: Dozens more large aftershocks are likely by Richard Aster for the Conversation 16 January 2020

Forecasting earthquakes is not a strict prediction – it’s more like a weather forecast, in which scientists estimate the likelihood of future earthquake activity based on quakes that have already occurred, using established statistical laws that govern earthquake behavior.
Puerto Rico spans a complex boundary between the Caribbean and North American tectonic plates, which are sliding past each other in this region at a relative speed of about 2 centimeters per year. Over geologic time, this motion has created the Muertos Trough, a 15,000-foot depression in the sea floor south of the island.
This plate boundary is riddled with interconnected fault structures. The present activity is occurring on and near at least three interrelated large faults.
How socialism became un-American through the Ad Council’s propaganda campaigns by Oana Godeanu-Kenworthy for the Conversation, 02/27/20
For four decades, the Cold War provided a simple good–vs.–evil axis that consolidated the association between freedom, American–ness and free-enterprise capitalism.
The Cold War ended 30 years ago, but its cultural structures and divisions endure – perhaps, even, in the responses of some Americans to Bernie Sanders’ socialism.
Much work needed to ‘target unacceptable levels’ of racism in Ecuador: UN experts 12/26/19

The Working Group drew particular attention to the province of Esmeraldas, where nearly 70 per cent of the population is of African heritage. “Esmeraldas is one of the poorest provinces in Ecuador”, said Mr. Reid, noting that 85 per cent of people live below the poverty line, less than a quarter are able to access the most basic services and 15 per cent are illiterate”.
While welcoming the Government’s national initiatives to combat racism, discrimination, xenophobia and intolerance faced by Afro Ecuadorians, the UN experts maintained that “ much work remains to be done to target these unacceptable levels of exclusion and poverty”.
With systematic contamination of the environment and their water supplies, intimidation of their communities, and an insufficient response by the State, the experts lamented that people of African descent are also suffering “ environmental racism”.
In conclusion, they said that “ the State should not remain indifferent to human rights abuses and violations by extractive industries and other companies”, but instead “end impunity for human rights violations and environmental racism.” For his part, Ricardo Sunga, one of the human rights experts, praised the progressive provisions of the country’s Constitution that recognized the collective rights of people of African descent.
Independent experts are appointed by the Geneva–based UN Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a specific human rights theme or a country situation. The positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work.
