Chinese President Meets Mauritanian Counterpart
 
02:44
Chinese President Xi Jinping held talks with visiting Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz in Beijing on Monday, reaching a consensus to develop friendly relationship and inject fresh momentum to bilateral cooperation. Xi welcomed Aziz for his state visit to China and attendance to the opening of the China-Arab States Expo held in Yinchuan, capital of northwest China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region. Xi said that as good friends and partners, the two countries have always adhered to mutual trust and cooperation since they established diplomatic relationship half a century ago. The two countries have the common aspiration of development and are facing similar challenges despite their different conditions, said Xi, who therefore urged them to continue their close cooperation. China thanks Mauritania for its consistent support for China on issues concerning China's core interests and major concerns, and will continue to support Mauritania's efforts to safeguard stability and seek development. China is willing to expand cooperation with Mauritania in the fields of culture, journalism, education, youths and humanities. China also would like to work together with the Mauritanian side in deepening the traditional cooperation in infrastructure construction, mining and fishery. China hopes to open new grounds for cooperation in agriculture, water and electricity, as well as clean energy. On his part, Aziz said Mauritania would like to further deepen bilateral cooperation in socio-economic development and welcomes Chinese investment in Mauritania. As the international community is facing more and more common challenges, Mauritania expects the two sides to strengthen coordination and communication in international affairs. After the talks, the two heads of state witnessed the signing of a series of agreements on cooperation in the fields of economy, technology, infrastructure construction and public health.

4K UHD Mitsubishi at 2019 Canadian International Auto Show Toronto
 
05:31
4K UHD Mitsubishi at 2019 Canadian International Auto Show Toronto The Canadian International AutoShow (CIAS) is Canada's largest auto show. This event has been held in Toronto, Ontario since 1974 and is staged annually in February at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. It draws an average of 300,000 visitors throughout its showing from Ontario and Western New York. The Canadian International AutoShow in partnership with AutoTrader exhibits over 1,000 cars, trucks, and SUVs as well as, concept cars, exotics, classics, motorcycles and alternative energy vehicles. AutoTrader is the presenting Title Sponsor and Show Program Publisher of the Canadian International AutoShow.[1] The AutoShow also rents booths to over 125 exhibitors promoting contests, products, services and even locally owned vehicles. The Mitsubishi Group (三菱グループ Mitsubishi Gurūpu, also known as the Mitsubishi Group of Companies or Mitsubishi Companies, and informally as the Mitsubishi Keiretsu) is a group of autonomous Japanese multinational companies in a variety of industries. It is historically descended from the Mitsubishi zaibatsu, a unified company which existed from 1870, founded by Iwasaki Yatarō, to 1947 and was disbanded during the occupation of Japan following World War II. The former constituents of the company continue to share the Mitsubishi brand and trademark. Although the group companies participate in limited business cooperation, most famously through monthly "Friday Conference" executive meetings, they are formally independent and are not under common control. The four main companies in the group are MUFG Bank (the largest bank in Japan), Mitsubishi Corporation (a general trading company), Mitsubishi Electric and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (both being diversified manufacturing companies). The Mitsubishi company was established as a shipping firm by Yatarō Iwasaki (1834–1885) in 1870. In 1873, its name was changed to Mitsubishi Shokai. The name Mitsubishi (三菱) consists of two parts: "mitsu" meaning "three" and "hishi" (which becomes "bishi" under rendaku) meaning "water caltrop" (also called "water chestnut"), and hence "rhombus", which is reflected in the company's logo. It is also translated as "three diamonds".[1] Mitsubishi was established in 1870, two years after the Meiji Restoration, with shipping as its core business. Its diversification was mostly into related fields. It entered into coal-mining to gain the coal needed for ships, bought a shipbuilding yard from the government to repair the ships it used, founded an iron mill to supply iron to the shipbuilding yard, started a marine insurance business to cater for its shipping business, and so forth. Later, the managerial resources and technological capabilities acquired through the operation of shipbuilding were utilized to expand the business further into the manufacture of aircraft and equipment. The experience of overseas shipping led the firm to enter into a trading business.[2] In 1881, the company bought into coal mining by acquiring the Takashima Mine, followed by Hashima Island in 1890, using the production to fuel their extensive steamship fleet. They also diversified into shipbuilding, banking, insurance, warehousing, and trade. Later diversification carried the organization into such sectors as paper, steel, glass, electrical equipment, aircraft, oil, and real estate. As Mitsubishi built a broadly based conglomerate, it played a central role in the modernization of Japanese industry.[3] In February 1921, the Mitsubishi Internal Combustion Engine Manufacturing Company in Nagoya invited British Sopwith Camel designer Herbert Smith, along with several other former Sopwith engineers to assist in creating an aircraft manufacturing division. After moving to Japan, they designed the Mitsubishi 1MT, Mitsubishi B1M, Mitsubishi 1MF, and Mitsubishi 2MR. The merchant fleet entered into a period of diversification that would eventually result in the creation of three entities: Mitsubishi Bank (now a part of the Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group) was founded in 1919. After its mergers with the Bank of Tokyo in 1996, and UFJ Holdings in 2004, this became Japan's largest bank. Mitsubishi Corporation, founded in 1950, Japan's largest general trading company Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, which includes these industrial companies: Mitsubishi Motors, the sixth-largest Japan-based car manufacturer. Mitsubishi Atomic Industry, a nuclear power company. Mitsubishi Chemical, the largest Japan-based chemicals company Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, a power generation division Nikon Corporation, specializing in optics and imaging. The firm's prime real estate holdings in the Marunouchi district of Tokyo, acquired in 1890, were spun off in 1937 to form Mitsubishi Estate, now one of the largest real estate development companies in Japan.

A Provocation, renowned scholar Kishore Mahbubani assesses the challenges the West faces in a fast-changing, multipolar world. He argues that while democracy and peace remain critical for global order, the West can no longer presume to impose its ideology on the world. Only by recognizing its changing status, and seeking to influence rather than dominate, can the West continue to play a leading role in global affairs. On October 1, 2018, Professor Mahbubani visited Georgetown for a presentation and discussion of this important book. Dr. Victor Cha, the D.S.

Canada eyes economic cooperation potential.
 
02:58
Mining, energy, agriculture and forestry, as well as aerospace have been among the sectors that Canada has expressed cooperation interest in, seeking to boost ties and trade with Laos. Canadian Minister of International Trade, Chrystia Freeland revealed the Canadian intention in her exclusive interview with Vientiane Times and Lao National Television on Thursday during her visit to Laos and her attendance in the outgoing 48th Asean Economic Ministers' Meeting in Vientiane. “There are real opportunities in mining in Laos, which is an area of real expertise for Canadian companies. Laos is very involved in the energy sector where Canada also has a lot of expertise,” Ms Freeland said. There is a lot of focus on infrastructure where Canada has expertise, in particular public and private partnerships in that space, according to the minister, who said aerospace is another possibility for cooperation as well as information technology. Mentioning agriculture and forestry, the Canadian minister said that cooperation with her country would provide an opportunity for building high value-added agriculture as Canada has strength in this field. She also made mention about forestry as an important sector for both Laos and Canada. Laos and Canada established diplomatic relations in 1974. Canada opened its first resident diplomatic presence last September, through which until recently, relations were handled by the Canadian Embassy in Bangkok, Thailand. Since opening a diplomatic office space in Laos, the Canadian Ambassador to Thailand remains accredited to Laos, and the Lao Embassy in Washington, D.C., is responsible for relations with Canada. Laos and Canada are partners in La Francophonie and also cooperate through Asean and the security oriented Asean Regional Forum. Approximately 25,000 persons of Lao origin live in Canada. Ms Freeland said she was very excited about the Canadian relationship with Laos, as the two countries are now making a big push to grow and develop that relationship. “We now have a diplomatic office here with resident Canadian diplomats, which is a first and an important foundation for developing the relationship going forward,” she said. Bilateral trade between Laos and Canada amounted to US$29 million last year, an increase of four percent over the previous year. Canadian exports to Laos amounted to US$5.8 million, a decrease of 55 percent, primarily in machinery and mechanical appliances. Meanwhile, imports from Laos were valued at US$23.7 million in the same year, an increase of 43.6 percent over the previous year. Chemical compounds such as silicon, apparel and clothing accessories make up 90 percent of merchandise imports from Laos. The Canadian minister was impressed with Canadian investors here in Laos such as Celestica Laos, which she said employed 600 Lao workers. Other Canadian companies include SN Plus and Hatfield Consulting, who are bringing investment and expertise to help promote economic growth. Companies like Joma Café, not only operate successfully in Laos, but they demonstrate a strong ethic of social responsibility and a commitment to giving back to the country. On the same day, Canadian Minister of International Trade, Chrystia Freeland presided over a ceremony announcing US$13 million in support to progressive trade in Southeast Asia, aiming to help the most vulnerable workers in the region become more successful in business. In partnership with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, Canada will support research, training and capacity building to help the governments of Asean members put small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) friendly policies and programmes in place and help to identify opportunities to integrate SMEs into global value chains.

Wiele istniejących rozwiązań produktowych opiera się na zastałych schematach i stereotypach dotyczących potrzeb grup docelowych. Jest to szczególnie widoczne dla grup, które nie mają styczności z osobami, które zajmują się ich projektowaniem. Wiesław Kopeć opowiada o tym, dlaczego warto być bliżej użytkownika, traktować go jako eksperta i jak włączać go w proces rozwoju produktów na przykładzie projektowania rozwiązań dla osób starszych, które po wprowadzeniu do tematu są w stanie współprojektować rozwiązania jako członkowie zespołów. Wiesław Kopeć is part of an international interdisciplinary social informatics research team focused on ICT technologies for older adults. He combines high-level IT and business experience with a rich academic background; he worked on advanced network teams and on large scale computer-science projects at the Interdisciplinary Center for Mathematical and Computational Modelling at the University of Warsaw, and did extensive research on participatory methods and techniques of empirical software engineering at the Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology. Recently, his interests have extended to social aspects of applying modern information technologies with a special focus on human factors in software engineering, human-computer interaction, computer-supported cooperative work and social computing in the context of participatory design and advanced methods like Complex Event Processing, Process Mining, Machine Learning and Big Data for supporting educational and business value generation processes.

April 5, 2018 The Center for Ethics and The Rule of Law present the Keynote Address for the two day conference, The Weaponization of Outer Space: Ethical and Legal Boundaries. This panel of high level experts will provide a unique insight into these issues, and into why we all need to be aware of the importance of space security. Keynote Speakers: Major General David D. Thompson, Vice Commander, U.S. Air Force Space Command Mr. Stephen Oswald, former NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration shuttle pilot Dr. Laura Grego, Senior Global Security Scientist, Union of Concerned Scientists Moderated by: Dr. Cassandra Steer, Acting Executive Director, CERL Cocktail reception to follow in the Haaga Lounge. Join the discussion: #CERLspace Our 21st century lives are highly dependent on satellites and space-based technologies, and our military depends on these technologies heavily for its operations. This keynote event will address the ways in which the military uses outer space, the risk of weaponization of outer space, and issues faced by the U.S. in terms of protecting its assets while seeking to avoid a space conflict. The effects of a conflict in outer space would be difficult, if impossible to contain, and a different strategy is required than in other domains such as land, sea and air. What role can international diplomacy and information sharing play in protecting against an arms race in space? What can and should the U.S. be doing to protect against attacks on satellites? How does the law of armed conflict apply to outer space? And how would a space conflict affect us all in our daily lives?

Life creation, life extension and alternative life forms
 
47:21
Are humans becoming a creative force that creates life from dead matter? Exploring new life forms, extending our life span tremendously, or even rejuvenating...it is now, at reach. Especially if we grow our own new organs thanks to stemcell research: will we become super evolved life forms with enhanced features and an extended life span? Original Title: The mind of the universe Lee Cronin, creator of alternative life: Non-biological life, you would say that this is impossible by definition. But that happens to be what he is trying to create. All life on Earth uses DNA or RNA and proteins, but is that the only option? Maybe this is just the only form that is left here on Earth, and we overlooked other life forms. And maybe there are other planets or life forms with a totally different basis. Cronin is looking for chemical reactions which are at the beginning of life: He does so with a kind of chemical search engine, that processes chemical structures endlessly. Will his lab create alternative forms of life? George Church, creator of new life forms: likes to think about the future, and foresees tremendous changes in everything we know about life. Especially thanks to genetics. The Church lab was the first one to use the new CRISPR-Cas technique to transform human stem cells: a new form of life. DNA programming then become a piece of cake. We're going to eradicate all kinds of diseases, dramatically extend our life span and then invest time and energy to bring life elsewhere in the universe. Will there be a variety of sophisticated genetic supermen that spread like wildfire across the galaxy? Hans Clevers, creator of mini organs: "I'm sure we will know exactly within one or two generations how our body builds itself and sustains". "And that means we basically can repair every sick organ. Probably with your own cells.". Clevers doesn't have enough with one life: he is the head of the investigation section of the Princess Máxima Center for Pediatric Oncology and of a research group at the Hubrecht Laboratory and is also Professor of Molecular Genetics. His research is all about stem cells and how we can get them to do what we want.

The MK82 was unexpectedly found a few weeks ago during a dig to judge the land level for a dispensary construction project being carried out in the village. Head of the UXO Search and Destroy Section of the Engineering Department at the Ministry of National Defence, Major Southone Theva, said "Today we have successfully defused the 500 pound bomb and removed it from the village. However, it was quite a challenge for us as it was a large bomb and was located very close to the village with a chance of damaging a circular area of up to 1,500 metres if something went wrong." According to a report fro m the UXO-NRA, there were 82 UXO items found in the district, including mortar bullets, mines and grenades. This was the fourth time they had found and removed this kind of bomb from the district. Major Southone said an MK82 was a 227kg bomb and was one of the most common explosive devices dropped by aircraft currently made by the US. The reason why this bomb, as well as other UXO, remained in this district was because some parts of this area used to be a stronghold during the 1964-75 war, he said. Head of the Clearance Division of UXO-NRA Mr Phommachan Khammanchan said, "We were quite surprised that the same kind of bomb was located about 15 metres away from the one we found and removed in 2012 with cooperation from specialists at the UXO Search and Destroy Section of the Engineering Department." "Since we don't have any bombing data from this district, it means there is likely to be more of these bombs in the area. "We have made plans to survey UXO in this district in the near future and have made further plans to clear whatever we find." From June 1964-73 the US dropped more than two million tonnes of ordnance on Laos during their 580,000 bombing missions. This is equal to a planeload of bombs every 8 minutes, 24-hours a day, for 9 years, which makes Laos the most heavily bombed country per capita in history. Since 1990, the Lao government and the international community have been making joint efforts to clear the UXO. However, so far the clearance has only covered two percent of the contaminated areas in the whole country. by Phoonsab Thevongsa

According to Poyry, to address the concerns of neighbouring nations, Laos has redesigned the dam which will be able to ensure the release of all sediments downstream and allow 85 percent of fish species to pass the dam. It will also build channels for boat navigation and establish feed breeding centers up and downstream of the dam. The redesign of the project costs the project developers of more than US $100 million in additional funding, with the aim of addressing the concerns of the downstream Mekong nations. While speaking to our news team, Dr. Guido Kappali said, the project is considered one of the most modern and technologically advanced hydropower dam projects around the world and he is confidence that the Lao government is on the right track in addressing all the social and environmental issues ... Interview: Dr. Guido Kappali. Lao Honorary Consul in Switzerland. "I very interested in this project... Everyone country needs to use the resource that you have...I am convinced this project is the highest level of state of the art like in Switzerland (40% is hydropower)...you can be proud to have such a project, you have forecast all the impacts, it is developed in the most professional way...All human do is have impact, what you need to do is balance the positive over the negative, there is more positive than negative.." According to Dr. Kappali, the project is very crucial to the development of Lao PDR because it will help to generate a lot of revenue for the state and in turn will have the government will have the capacity to develop the country further so to come out from the least developed country status... Interview: Dr. Guido Kappali. Lao Honorary Consul in Switzerland. "The government can help reduce the poverty.... build schools, infrastructure... Lao population grows 2% every year, you should develop the country so to prepare to meet that demand..." The Lao government hopes that Xayaboury dam will be the best dam on the Mekong River. The construction of the dam will help it to generate revenue so as it can reduce poverty in the country and become an industrial nation over the next 10 years.

VO Lao Airlines is continuing to upgrade its aircraft fleet getting ready for AEC challenges INTRO: Lao Airlines is continuing to upgrade its aircraft fleet, aiming to strengthen its business capacity ahead of establishment of the Asean Economic Community. The national flag carrier received the latest aircraft last weekend at an official ceremony held at Wattay International Airport in Vientiane. STORY: Lao Airlines President, Somphone Duangdara and a number of a senior officials and media attended the hand over ceremony of the new ATR 720-600. The airline expects to receive another US$20 million worth of turboprop aircraft at the end of this year, which will allow the state owned enterprise to increase flights to the provinces and foreign destinations amid rising business competition. Acccording to Lao Airlines Vice President, Somsamay Visounnalath , the decision by the state owned company to acquire more aircraft was part of its efforts to ready the airline in the face of stronger business competition after the Asean Economic Community is formed in 2015. Policy makers believe that the establishment of the Asean Economic Community will make Asean a single market and production base, in which goods and services will be allowed to flow freely within the region. Air travel is one of the services which will be freed up. Asean countries have agreed to open their skies to each other, meaning Lao airlines can fly to any destination within Asean while at the same time other airlines in the region can also fly to Laos, which will create strong business competition among domestic airlines. As part of its efforts to strengthen business capacity ahead of regional economic integration, Lao Airlines has employed experts from Australia to help the One of the challenges that must be addressed before the airline can become a public company is that it must demonstrate that it operates transparently so investors can feel confident in purchasing shares in the company. The company will also need to disclose all of its business operations to shareholders.

Aerospace is the human effort in science, engineering and business to fly in the atmosphere of Earth (aeronautics) and surrounding space (astronautics). Aerospace organisations research, design, manufacture, operate, or maintain aircraft and/or spacecraft. Aerospace activity is very diverse, with a multitude of commercial, industrial and military applications. Aerospace is not the same as airspace, which is the physical air space directly above a location on the ground. In most industrial countries, the aerospace industry is a cooperation of public and private industries. For example, several countries have a civilian space program funded by the government through tax collection, such as National Aeronautics and Space Administration in the United States, European Space Agency in Europe, the Canadian Space Agency in Canada, Indian Space Research Organisation in India, Japanese Aeronautics Exploration Agency in Japan, RKA in Russia, China National Space Administration in China, SUPARCO in Pakistan, Iranian Space Agency in Iran, and Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) in South Korea. Along with these public space programs, many companies produce technical tools and components such as spaceships and satellites. Some known companies involved in space programs include Boeing, Airbus Group, Lockheed Martin, MacDonald Dettwiler and Northrop Grumman. These companies are also involved in other areas of aerospace such as the construction of aircraft.

Lao NEWS on LNTV-Laos is spending significant amounts of money to clear UXO.31/05/2013
 
03:48
VO Laos is spending significant amounts of money to clear unexploded ordnance INTRO: Laos is spending significant amounts of money to clear unexploded ordnance or UXO, but the operations are not highly effective, According to Minister to the Government Office and President of the NRA, Bounheuang Douangphachanh, We need 100,000 hectares to be cleared in five years from 2010 to 2015, but we will only get 30,000. What's going on?" STORY: Speaking at the annual meeting, held in Vientiane, Minister to the Government Office and President of the NRA, Bounheuang Douangphachanh said , There are 16 organisations working on UXO clearance in Laos, including the Lao National UXO Programme, which has 3,400 workers. He said, we need 100,000 hectares to be cleared in five years from 2010 to 2015, but we will only get 30,000. What's going on?" Last year, Laos received US$30 million from international donors to remove UXO, help victims and engage in education activities. The biggest funders have been the US, Australia, the EU and Japan. According to NRA Director Phoukhieo Chanthasomboun , NRA accepts that clearance work is not being done well because we can only complete 6,000 hectares per year. In reality, more than 6,000 hectares per year should be cleared with US$30 million, Phoukhieo Chanthasomboun said. Another reason that problems have occurred is because most donors are providing money for NGOs to help clear bombs, instead of providing it directly to the national programme. On the other hand, some of the money from the funders is used to pay government UXO workers. Each receives a salary from US$180 to US$400 per month. Around 60 percent is spent directly in the field, 30 percent for administration work and 10 percent in other areas. Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Alounkeo Kittikhoun said, Currently, over 200,000 hectares of land is contaminated in the 46 poorest districts of the country, but only one percent has been cleared there. The overall funding from the donors has not increased since 2010 either although last year, the US decided to raise funding to US$9 million per year, but only US$5 million has been received so far. Victim support programmes have been working quite well, however. In 2012, the number of accidents related to UXO stood at 56, resulting in 15 deaths and the rest suffering limb damage. In the previous year, 300 people were reported to have been victims of UXO. This year, the NRA will employ the skills of the army's engineering department to help clear mines and bombs. Last year, Japan Mine Action Service began a pilot project using a specialised Japanese-made Komatsu UXO clearance vehicle in Xieng Khuang province, but unfortunately the trial was unsuccessful as the vehicle was unable to function effectively in mountainous areas.

Behold The Future...The ACFR has three major objectives: Research: To develop both fundamental and applied research programs in field robotics that encompass the development of new theories and methods in robotics, and the deployment of these in targeted industrial applications (see Our Research page for more information about our fundamental and applied research programs): The Fundamental Research Program focuses on enabling technologies in four key areas: perception, control, learning and systems. These areas draw together common themes and research priorities from the applied research program (i.e. projects) with the goal of supporting long-term developments across the whole field robotics area. The Applied Research Program focuses on various application domains: aerospace, materials handling, indoor robots, mining, defence, subsea, art, transport, agriculture and others. Each project is tied to on-going industry research projects and benefits from the input of industrial partners. Teaching: In concert with the research plan to develop a unique capability for the teaching of field robotics fundamentals at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and to develop a series of industry-responsive courses in applied field robotics. The Teaching Program is structured around the delivery of industry focused courses in field robotics technology. These courses are also delivered to incoming PhD students. These courses are also being developed into a modular industry-focused Master of Engineering (ME) program. (see Education page for more information) Working with industry: To build and maintain links with both system developer and end-user industries, and to develop a range of collaborative strategies for the commercial involvement, development and exploitation of both fundamental and applied research programs. The Working with industry (wealth creation) strategy focuses on the establishment of long-term links with key industry partners, and on the development of field robotics capabilities in Australian industries. (see Working with industry page for more information) Outcomes The principle outcome of the ACFR is the establishment of a national capability in field robotics able to undertake and support substantial end-user applications, able to support the creation of a new industry in robotics technology, and standing as a leading international research centre in field robotics. The management and evaluation strategy for the centre defines specific outcome measures for each of the three objectives: Research: Through published material, international projects and collaborative project income. Teaching: Through the number, quality and placement of graduates and secondment to industry. Working with industry (wealth creation): Through specific application projects and through the development or licensing of technology products. Objective To develop both fundamental and applied research programs in field robotics and intelligent systems that encompass the development of new theories and methods, and the deployment of these in targeted industrial, social and environmental applications. Research Program The research program focuses on enabling technologies in four core areas: Sensors, Fusion & Perception: sensing, representations of information, the modelling and management of uncertainty, data fusion and perceptual interpretation. Actuators, Control & Decision: of individual micro and macro machines, of heterogeneous groups of platforms and sensors, and of contact and interaction with the environment and each other. Modelling, Learning & Adaptation: supervised and unsupervised learning in unstructured and dynamic environments, multi-agent learning, pattern recognition, concept formation and adaptation to the environment. Architectures, Systems & Cooperation: design and optimisation of “systems of systems”, modelling and management of complexity, large scale systems theory, and modelling of information flow, negotiation and cooperation between platforms and intelligent systems. These four core research areas define the science of field robotics and intelligent systems and represent the main focus of the ACFR. They draw together common themes and research priorities from within the various research groups and labs within the ACFR, with the goal of supporting long-term developments across the whole field robotics and intelligent systems area. The research groups and labs ensure that the many threads of the core research areas are brought together and that a bridge exists to future commercial development of research results for our partners and centres and new application areas. http://www.acfr.usyd.edu.au/about/objectives_outcomes.shtml ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- unisydneyacfr Youtube Channel https://www.youtube.com/user/unisydneyacfr

"Assessing and incorporating teaching and learning resources by and about First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples is critical for librarians, educators and parents. Awareness of diverse epistemologies, notions of cultural authenticity and historical accuracy, and the influence of colonialism, are essential when considering books, films and interactive media for library and classroom collections. This panel will address challenges facing Indigenous and non-Indigenous librarians, educators and parents when drawing upon materials representing Indigenous peoples and cultures. They will offer insights about such issues as cultural appropriation, stereotypes, addressing colonialism and what to do with dated resources. This session is ideal for teacher candidates, classroom teachers, teacher-librarians, youth librarians and parents. Convener: Jo-Anne Naslund, UBC Education Library Moderator: Lisa P.
