Business helps empower Guatemalan women and preserve an ancient trade

first_imgGUATEMALA CITY – Stephanie Jolluck first came to Guatemala in 1997 to volunteer with a women’s cooperative. The country’s 36-year civil war had just ended, leaving a bloody legacy of 200,000 people dead and more than 40,000 disappeared.Working with an organization that helped empower indigenous women, Jolluck gained an insight into the color and culture of Guatemala.“I rapidly fell in love with the rich and vibrant colors of the textiles and other handicrafts. I witnessed extreme poverty for the first time and noticed that most people living in poverty were the very ones creating the beautiful, ingenious, awe-inspiring weavings and art; it was a contradiction that didn’t make sense,” Jolluck told The Tico Times.Guatemalan textiles have become famous throughout the world; however, the majority of the Mayan women who create them live in extreme poverty. Many Mayan girls drop out of school during third grade, marry young and have large families, which puts a strain on their already limited resources.“I explored the country and the anthropologist and designer in me grew amazed at the 2,000-year-old textile tradition that was slowly disappearing. I couldn’t bear the thought of this beautiful tradition going extinct and wanted to share it with the world,” Jolluck said. Colección Luna’s designs are made from reclaimed indigenous clothing that is then handwoven or embroidered to make bags and jewelry that are sold to customers around the world. Courtesy of Colección Luna Shortly after returning to the United States, Jolluck gave up her job as a high school Spanish teacher and decided to create Colección Luna, at the age of 26, in an effort to alleviate poverty, preserve Guatemala’s textile tradition and empower women.Working with a women’s cooperative that employs about 100 people on the shores of Lake Atitlán, 150 kilometers west of Guatemala City, Colección Luna sells handbags, accessories and beaded jewelry to customers all over the world using reclaimed indigenous clothing and fair-trade practices.“I travel four to six times a year to the highland region of Guatemala, working directly with the artisans on my designs. The line of textiles is created from reclaimed Mayan indigenous clothing: huipiles (blouses), cortes (skirts) and fajas (belts) that are hand-woven or hand-embroidered,” she said.Weaving together ancient traditions and contemporary pieces such as iPad covers, smartphone cases and yoga bags, Colección Luna shares the Mayan culture with customers overseas and teaches them the importance of fair trade and empowerment of women.“It’s been amazing to see and hear how consumers are becoming more socially conscious about their buying decisions. When my business started in 1999, you rarely heard the words ‘fair/direct trade,’ ‘women’s empowerment,’ ‘sustainability,’ ‘eco-friendly,’ things that I focused on when I began Colección Luna. I love that these words are now recognized and that consumers care about the how, where and why of Colección Luna,” she added.Last month, Jolluck was announced as a “Leg Up” winner by SPANX, a hosiery company that runs a program to raise awareness of entrepreneurship by women.“On the morning of the announcement I was on a plane headed to Guatemala to work with my artisans. It was so wonderful to share [the news] with them because, as my partners, it was their award too,” Jolluck said.Lidia Agarre and her husband have worked with Jolluck since the business first began, sourcing fabrics, developing products and working with weavers in their small village in Quiché, in northwestern Guatemala. Coming from a family of artisans, Agarre used to sell her designs at Chichicastenango, Central America’s biggest market, but says that business was unpredictable.“Stephanie has helped us a lot. The economy has gone down a bit, but Stephanie is always opening up new markets so we still have work. Employees earn more than they used to at the market and they work when they can. Some of them have to attend to the maize harvest so we work around that,” Agarre said.

We live better now – we can send our daughters to school and afford food,” she said.Jolluck is currently working on a line of vintage Guatemalan textiles and an exhibition and talk in the U.S. about Colección Luna’s work.To learn more about Colección Luna, visit the website: http://coleccion-luna.myshopify.com/ Facebook Comments Colección Luna recently partnered with the African musician Emmanuel Jal and his “We Want Peace” campaign to empower indigenous Mayan women, build schools in South Sudan and spread the message of global peace.

First new flight with Tigerair Australia lands in the Whitsundays

first_imgFirst new flight with Tigerair Australia lands in the WhitsundaysFirst new flight with Tigerair Australia lands in the WhitsundaysThe first of the new Tigerair Australia flights into Whitsunday Coast Airport commences today.The airline is increasing return services from Sydney, to six weekly return services, and is introducing four new return services from Brisbane, resulting in an additional 55,000 visitor seats into Whitsunday Coast Airport each year.The move has been welcomed by the region’s tourism operators and Tourism Whitsundays.Tourism Whitsundays CEO Craig Turner said the new flights would help the region fulfil its “massive potential”.“While the Whitsundays has always been highly aspirational, one of the barriers to converting this into visitation has been the challenges around ways to get here and the convenience of flights,” he said.“With the additional six flights into region with Tigerair, starting on March 23, this will go some way to breaking down that conversion barrier.“The Whitsundays is in a very strong position and the addition of these flights will allow us to continue to fulfil the massive potential that the Whitsundays has.”Whitsunday Regional Council Mayor Andrew Willcox said the additional flights and increased visitor seats would provide a significant boost for accommodation houses, tour and transport operators, restaurants and retail businesses in the region.“It is certainly happy days in the Whitsundays so far in 2017 and the new direct morning return service from Brisbane is a massive vote of confidence in our region by Tigerair.“As owners of Whitsunday Coast Airport this council has worked closely with Tigerair to secure the new flights, which will also provide better connectivity for overseas visitors.“Basically more choice and availability of flights makes it easier for international tourists to visit our region,” Mayor Willcox said.The new flights mean it has never been easier or more affordable to visit the Whitsundays.

Harassed foreign investor granted palace meeting

first_imgBy Stefanos EvripidouA FOREIGN investor facing a host of bureaucratic obstacles to opening an eco-friendly sustainable resort in Latchi village, made worse by a “hostile” public service, has found a government willing to listen.Ajay Goyal told the Cyprus Mail earlier this month that his €5 million sustainable tourism project – the Zening Resorts in Latchi village in the Polis Chrysochous area – was being consistently thwarted by a raid on bank accounts, capital controls, frequent government inspections on site, fines, lawsuits, bad press, and “bullying”.Following a detailed report by the Sunday Mail on June 2, Goyal was invited to the Presidential Palace on Monday this week, where he met Undersecretary to the President, Constantinos Petrides.According to Goyal, the meeting was “very interesting and constructive”, with the government showing a real interest in hearing “a firsthand account of what it’s really like for a foreign investor on the frontlines”, who wants to make a “real and sustainable” investment in the country, as opposed to simply buying real estate and acquiring permanent residency.He said the government was willing to go all the way to support foreign investors who abide by the country’s rules and law.“I explained to them that an investor coming into a new country is like a kid going to kindergarten for the first time. If he does not act within the rules on the first day, you cannot slap the kid. You have to first teach the child the rules. You can’t start sending 20 government departments, whose job it is to come and make sure we are doing everything according to rules that only they know.”Even his Cypriot managers were not aware of all the rules that a project is meant to abide by, argued Goyal, using as an example the case of the yellow slip that all workers were meant to have, in addition, to actually paying their social insurance.“It’s a question of bureaucracy going berserk. You can’t implement obscure rules on first inspection. Or at least, come and say, guys you’re starting a business, these are the rules.”The investor proposed the government provide a channel of communication between business and bureaucracy “so that before slapping wrist, and pushing people around, you can tell them what is right and what is wrong… because right now businesses are being treated very antagonistically”.He called for a ‘sherpa’ office which could communicate directly with investors on all their obligations and help them get through the labyrinth of bureaucratic procedures, as well as act as a go-between for businesses and government.“They thought it was a very interesting proposal,” he said.This Sherpa could also help protect investors from “vested interests and unscrupulous operators”, he said, highlighting his own experience in Latchi.“The government has an obligation to investigate allegations but also to protect investors from bullying,” he said.Finally, Goyal called on the government to do its best to attract real FDI.“Until now, someone who comes shopping for real estate is considered a foreign investor. Certainly buying a house contributes to the economy but that is not FDI. An FDI support mechanism is simply absent in Cyprus, it does not exist, and it needs to be created.“And they need to act fast, they don’t have time to wait, because the situation is dire,” he added, referring to the complete lack of liquidity in the market and absence of any credit being offered by credit institutions to businesses.“If things continue like this, in four, five months, businesses will have run out of stock,” he said.Zening was meant to open in May for the 2013 tourist season but the project was pushed back after the Eurogroup decision last March, which saw investors lose half a million euros in lost revenue as a result of the delay.They expect to lose a further €2m from the haircut on deposits in Bank of Cyprus and the former Laiki Bank.Goyal originally attracted €15m to invest in the area in two phases: the first €5m earmarked for Zening Resorts, an all-year round retreat hiring over 80 people, mostly Cypriots; while the remaining €10m was meant to be invested horizontally in organic farming and renewable energy.Following the troika’s decision to raid the bank deposits of the island’s two most systemic banks, investors have scrapped phase two, deciding instead to pull their money out as soon as possible.Over €3m has already been spent on Zening, and Goyal remains confident that Cyprus has what it takes to offer a different kind of experience to eco-conscience European and Russian tourists, as opposed to the “artificial world of all-inclusive tourism”.However, the Indian investor said he was spending so much time and effort countering allegations of supposed illegalities and irregularities made by the Paphos contractors’ association, headed by Antonis Petrides, that he even considered not opening at all this summer.Petrides was heard numerous times on local radio claiming that the tourism project was riddled with illegalities, allegedly employing dozens of illegal and undocumented workers, and operating without a building permit.Meanwhile, the semi-government Council for Registration and Control of Contractors (CRCC) initiated proceedings against Zening for allegedly hiring a non-licensed contractor to do renovation work.The CRCC tried to secure an interim injunction to stop renovation work at Zening (formerly the Elia holiday village) but failed, once it transpired that the hired contractor does have a licence, something which should have been obvious to the semi-government body since they are the ones responsible for registering contractors. The CRCC has since asked for an adjournment, to prepare a new charge against Zening.The investor said since the allegations surfaced by Petrides, he has become the target of regular inspections from the police, labour ministry, and other government departments.He questioned whether the government really wanted to attract foreign direct investment (FDI) in Cyprus or scare it away.Since publication of the Mail article, Zening was again subject to another “big labour ministry inspection” last week where no violations of any kind were found. The official opening is now set for July 4.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementCardiologist: This Is What Happens To Your Body When You Eat GlutenGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)UndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

treatments to inhibit the deadly HIV infectionscientists claim Researchers from George Mason University in the US found that genisteinderived from soybeans and other plantsmay become an effective HIV treatment without the drug resistance issues faced by current therapies Genistein is a “tyrosine kinase inhibitor” that works by blocking the communication from a cell’s surface sensors to its interior Found on a cell’s surfacethese sensors tell the cell about its environment and also communicate with other cells HIV uses some of these surface sensors to trick the cell to send signals inside These signals change cell structure so that the virus can get inside and spread infection But genistein blocks the signal and stops HIV from finding a way inside the cell It takes a different approach than the standard antiretroviral drug used to inhibit HIV “Instead of directly acting on the virusgenistein interferes with the cellular processes that are necessary for the virus to infect cells” said Yuntao Wua professor with the George Mason-based National Center for Biodefense and Infectious Diseases and the Department of Molecular and Microbiology “Thusit makes the virus more difficult to become resistant to the drug Our study is currently in its early stage If clinically proven effectivegenistein may be used as a complement treatment for HIV infection” Wu said Researchers caution that this doesn’t mean people should start eating large amounts of soy products “Although genistein is rich in several plants such as soybeansit is still uncertain whether the amount of genistein we consume from eating soy is sufficient to inhibit HIV” Wu said Wu sees possibilities in this plant-based approachwhich may address drug toxicity issues as well Because genistein is plant-derivedit may be able to sidestep drug toxicitya common byproduct of the daily and lifelong pharmaceutical regimen faced by patients with HIV to keep the disease at bayWu said Typicallypatients take a combination of multiple drugs to inhibit the virus The frequency can lead to drug toxicity PlusHIV mutates and becomes drug-resistant Wu and his team are working at finding out how much genistein is needed to inhibit HIV It’s possible that plants may not have high enough levelsso drugs would need to be developedWu said For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App

any of his competitors But the 21-year-old did not want to leave anything to chance More specifically he was keen to avoid a repeat of last year’s incident that ended in humiliation At the Rio Paralympics Gurjar reached the venue late and missed the start of F-46 javelin throw event by one minute His maiden Paralympic appearance ended in tears even though teammate Devendra Jhajharia won the gold medal On Friday the Rajasthan athlete was determined to make amends And he did Gurjar laid his demons to rest by winning the gold medal at the World Para Athletics Championships on Friday with a throw of 6036m The F-46 category is reserved for athletes who have single arm amputated Such was the mental trauma following the Rio debacle that Gurjar quit competing for three months He even developed suicidal tendancies His coach Mahaveer Singh Saini intervened and cajoled him into returning to the training ground but the incident remained fresh in his mind “I reached the stadium on Friday three hours before time and was thinking about what happened in Rio last year I left the sport for three months and would often think about suicide” Gurjar told The Indian Express “But I was keen to bury the memory This (London) stadium hosted the Olympic Games in 2012 so today’s gold medal is like winning the gold medal in Olympics for me” Gurjar was the favourite to win the gold medal at the Rio Paralympics Six months before the event he had recorded the world’s leading score of 6842m at the National Para Athletics Championships The next best effort in his category was Jhajharia’s who had recorded 6397m in Rio However lapse on the part of the team officials meant he could not start in his event at the Paralympics The disappointment was such that Gurjar locked himself kept away from the sport and would stay in his room in Jaipur alone for hours Sher Singh Khatana Gurjar’s brother-in-law said they took help from psychologists and IPS officer Ram Singh Shekhawat to bring him out of that phase “He did not even come home after what happened in Rio He would not eat for days isolating himself completely Coach Saini would not even go to his own home fearing for the worst” Khatana said It was after much insistence that Gurjar resumed training but this time it was not in javelin throw Before he lost his left arm in an accident at a construction site in November 2015 Gurjar competed in general category in various events including shot put He had shown spark even in javelin throw by winning the bronze medal at the Youth Athletics Championships in 2013 behind current junior world champion Neeraj Chopra who had won silver He was flipping through some of his old pictures when he stumbled upon one in which he had a junior national athletics championship gold medal (won in 2010) hanging around his neck So Gurjar started training for shot put under Saini and won three gold medals at the Fazza IPC Athletics Grand Prix in Dubai where he threw 6033m in javelin throw 1336m in T-44-46 shot put and 4456m in F-46 discus throw events He also joined English speaking classes simultaneously at his friend Himmat Singh Gurjar’s institute in Jaipur One of the reasons he had given for not being able to compete in Rio was his inability to understand his name pronounced with an accent in English “After Rio I could not practice javelin throw My friends showed me videos of Hungarian shooter Karoly Takacs who won the gold medal in 25m rapid fire pistol events in 1948 and 1952 Olympics despite an injured right hand” Gurjar said “And in Rio I missed my start as I could not understand the repeated calls of my registration So I was eager to improve my English I will continue that even when I return from London Aakhir Tokyo main medal jeet ke English main interview dena hai” On September 13 last year Gurjar’s family who own an acre of land in their village near Jaipur had planned huge celebrations anticipating a medal But it never took place Now the only stadium in the village which normally hosts army recruitment rallies is being decked up to welcome Gurjar A grand homecoming is in store “Last year we had got pamphlets worth Rs 50000 made in Jaipur as we were sure of his win A band was also hired But we couldn’t celebrate” Khatana said “He has not returned home since three years and has spent his time in Jaipur Last night more than 1000

pixel size | 3000mAh battery | Android Marshmallow Smartron t-phone Price: Rs 22999 Smartron t-phone The Smartron t-phone clearly takes a leaf out of the OnePlus book and tries to offer a phone that is more bang for its buck It is a smart looking looking phone that will appeal to a lot of people What is good Smartron t-phone comes in saffron so that you can wear your patriotism on your heart I liked the looks of the phone and it even comes in saffron so that you can wear your patriotism on your heart But the best thing about the design is the fact that it feels light despite being among the heavier phones in this segment That’s because the weight seems to have been pushed to the edges The phone offers a good grip and feels like it will last The Full HD display is both bright and vibrant This means you will have no issues working with it in bright sunlight The overall performance of the phone is good but this is no OnePlus 3 You will have no issues with regular tasks and I didn’t notice any lag on the screen or while playing games The phone doesn’t heat up which is a big plus these days The camera is quite good on the phone The colours are rich but natural The lighting can be very subtle and not the over-processed extra bright images in some phones these days The clicker is also fast The selfies camera will also not disappoint you The camera is quite good on the phone The colours are rich but natural The battery will see you through a full day but you might want to reduce the brightness of the screen for best results What is not good I don’t have a lot of complaints with the phone However I did feel they could have given a more versatile camera app given its great performance The app now is basic and does on give you a lot of options to tweak settings At a personal level I did not like the orange-grey combination of the review device It might be better to opt for the quieter colour combinations Verdict The Smartron t-phone is a decent phone and ticks all the boxes However it is not going to be an easy fight for this device At this price range it has to compete with many good devices including the year old OnePlus 3 Since some of those phones still have an edge when it comes to specs and performance I suggest you buy this phone if you are a big supporter of new Indian brands or if you want to get a look inside the larger ecosystem Smartron is
