Duchess of Cornwall Wears King Mohammed VIs Gift for the Second

Rabat – Camilla, the UK’s Duchess of Cornwall, attended an early St. Patrick’s Day dinner Wednesday evening at the Irish embassy in London. Camilla shined in her green caftan, a gift from King Mohammed VI she received during a royal visit to Morocco in 2011. She paired the caftan with nude high heels and accessorized with simple drop earrings. The green dress is sequenced with elaborate trimming down the middle in the Moroccan style known as sfifa.It is the second time that Camilla is wearing the exquisite caftan; she first donned the same caftan in an event that her husband, Charles, prince of Wales, hosted at Buckingham Palace in February. After being invited by King Mohammed VI, Prince Charles and Camilla visited Morocco in 2011, an event that reaffirmed the historic relationship between the two countries.Camilla attended a vibrant caftan fashion show at Rabat’s Villa of Arts, during which she expressed enthusiasm for the traditional Moroccan garment. read more

Middle East Ban Kimoon deeply concerned at rising violence loss of life

“These events underscore the urgent need for a calming of violence, and must not be allowed to deter the continuation of the political process,” Mr. Ban said in a statement issued yesterday by his spokesperson.Condemning rocket fire against Israel by Hamas, which intensified Wednesday and killed an Israeli civilian in Sderot, the Secretary-General called on Hamas and other militant groups to “cease such acts of terrorism.”He also condemned the killing of four Palestinian children, including an infant, in Gaza in IDF strikes.Mr. Ban called on Israel to “exercise maximum restraint and ensure respect for international humanitarian law so as not to endanger civilians,” the statement added. The UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) confirmed that the Palestinian infant was a six-month-old baby who was killed in the compound of a school run by the agency, near to where yesterday’s Israeli military strike occurred.The infant was the grandchild of the school guard, who lives on site and is tasked with keeping that school free from militants.UNRWA said that in addition to condemning the killing of the baby, it deplored any violence that placed its schools and other facilities at risk. 28 February 2008Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has expressed deep concern at the recent escalation of violence in southern Israel and Gaza, including the loss of civilian life resulting from rocket fire by Hamas and air strikes by the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF). read more

Teach children about the dangers of pornography MPs say

first_imgAdult website Children should be taught about the dangers of pornography as part of sex and relationships education (SRE) at primary school, a cross-party committee of MPs has said.The call emerged as a report warned that increasing access to online pornography is fueling sexual harassment and sexual violence in schools, with previous research indicating that almost one in ten children first viewed porn when they were under 10 years old.The research also found that 62 per cent of the youngsters who had viewed porn online at 14 years of age or younger, had done so by accident or because they had been shown it by someone else.MPs said that pornography is increasingly informing children’s views about sex, as the number of referrals of children with porn addictions – including boys and girls aged only eight – is increasing.Maria Miller, MP and chair of the Women and Equalities Select Committee, which published the report, said: “The guidance that is currently in place in schools pays no heed at all to the role of pornography, probably because it hasn’t been revised for 16 years, when there was no online pornography to be had.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Pornography is increasingly informing children’s views about sex “We know that significant numbers of young people access pornography online and it becomes part of the way they learn about sex and relationships, but for me, one of the most important things is that if we are starting to talk to young people about pornography, we include their parents in that as well.”MPs also called for parents to take a more prominent role in addressing “the impact of pornography on children’s perceptions of sex, relationships and consent”.Laura Bates of the Everyday Sexism Project, whose views were taken into consideration by the committee, said lessons about pornography “should be started at primary school level” and that “this can be done in an age-appropriate way”.She added: “In exactly the same way that we teach children from their very first nursery or school experiences that it isn’t right to hit another child, we can also be having age appropriate conversations about respect, about bodily autonomy and about consent.”The report comes as separate research found that many schools are delivering poor quality sex education, with some struggling to accept that young people are sexually active.A review of studies carried out mainly in the UK found that SRE is often “out of touch with many young people’s lives”.Researchers found that young people dislike having their own teachers deliver sex education, and said specialist teachers should be brought in to conduct the classes.Writing in the journal BMJ Open, they said: “Unless we get the delivery right, young people will continue to disengage from SRE and opportunities for safeguarding young people and improving their sexual health will be reduced.”The review was made up of 55 publications, mainly from the UK, but also from countries including the US, New Zealand, Canada and Sweden.last_img read more

Oakleigh receives 90000 boost

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Oakleigh will see further development and enhancement of its public open spaces, thanks to a $90,000 State Government grant. The funding is made available to Monash Council through the Melbourne 2030 Expert Assistance Program and is designed to assist councils with specialist expert and technical advice on preparing detailed design plans for the future development and enhancement of Oakleigh Village. Member of Parliament for Oakleigh, Ann Barker, joined with Victorian Treasurer, John Lenders, in the Oakleigh shopping centre last Friday to inspect the area expected to benefit. Joining the Treasurer and Local State Member were the Mayor of Monash, Councillor Charlotte Baines, and Councillors Stephen Dimopoulos and Stefanie Perri. The visit concluded with a coffee and refreshments at Vanilla, which saw discussion about how further planning of the growing cultural identity of the Oakleigh shopping area could be recognised. “The Oakleigh shopping centre and particularly the Eaton mall area has certainly changed over recent years,” said Mr. Lenders, “with the welcome increase in quality restaurants and cafes which are now contributing to the economic, employment and social growth for the local area.” Ms Barker said that she welcomed an opportunity to brief the Treasurer on the future planning for the Oakleigh shopping centre and join him at Vanilla with the Mayor of Monash and local Councillors. “The Oakleigh shopping area now has a vibrant cafe culture, thanks largely to the Greek community in particular. I’m sure we can continue to develop both the cultural identity and economic growth for Oakleigh.”last_img read more

Le PS veut garantir la neutralité du web

first_imgLe PS veut garantir la neutralité du webLe député socialiste Christian Paul a déposé hier une proposition de loi portant sur la neutralité du web et qui sera débattue le 17 février.Le parti socialiste ne compte pas laisser la prérogative à l’UMP sur la question du web. Alors que la loi Loppsi 2 a été votée hier par le Parlement, le député PS Christian Paul a déposé une proposition de loi visant à garantir “la neutralité du web”. “Il nous est apparu urgent et nécessaire de garantir fermement par la loi la neutralité de l’internet. L’actualité nous a récemment montré que ce principe est menacé et, dans ce domaine, mieux vaut prévenir que guérir”, a-t-il expliqué à 20minutes.fr. “C’est aussi l’occasion de défendre un véritable droit à la connexion”. À lire aussiLe World Wide Web a 30 ans : devons-nous nous inquiéter de son évolution ?Cette proposition, qui sera votée le 17 février prochain, consiste en trois volets. “Le premier est la discrimination à caractère commercial, qui consiste à dégrader un éditeur en fonction d’intérêts commerciaux. Par exemple, si un fournisseur d’accès à Internet disposant d’une messagerie vocale payante discrimine le service Skype. Le deuxième concerne la saturation des réseaux. La congestion est aujourd’hui un réel problème et il est nécessaire que les opérateurs investissent davantage dans le réseau”, explique ainsi Christian Paul. Un investissement dont le PS ne chiffre pas le besoin exact mais dont le cabinet Booz&Co estime qu’il sera important pour les opérateurs et dont la solution serait d’augmenter le prix des abonnements des consommateurs…Enfin, et c’est le point sensible soulevé par ce projet de loi, la question de la coupure du web. La loi Loppsi 2 prévoit en effet la possibilité de couper l’accès à certains sites sans passer devant la justice au préalable. Une disposition sévèrement critiquée par l’opposition qui veut que tout blocage ne puisse se faire que “sur décision d’une autorité judiciaire indépendante”.

Bellevues Valve pulls schoolshooting video game off site after backlash

first_imgBellevue gaming company Valve removed a game developer from its website Tuesday after online outrage over a video game depicting a school shooting.Backlash over the “Active Shooter” video game hit Valve over the weekend, with tens of thousands of people signing an online petition calling for the company to pull the game from its website.Valve did not create the game, but “Active Shooter” — developed by Revived Games and published by Acid — was scheduled to be distributed next week on Steam, a digital gaming storefront operated by Valve. Most developers pay $100 to sell a game and make it playable on the Steam platform. Steam, the biggest retailer in PC gaming, takes a cut of sales of games distributed on the site, usually 30 percent.Revived Games and Acid are run by the same person, who calls himself Ata Berdiyev, Valve spokesman Doug Lombardi said in an email Tuesday. “Ata is a troll, with a history of customer abuse, publishing copyrighted material and user review manipulation,” Lombardi said.Berdiyev had been kicked off the Steam site last fall, but returned to Steam using different business names. “We are not going to do business with people who act like this toward our customers or Valve,” Lombardi said.last_img read more

Someone may want to buy the ferry Taku but they need more

first_imgThe ferry Taku sails into the Wrangell Narrows on its way south in 2014. It’s since been pulled out of service and is being stored until it can be sold. (Ed Schoenfeld, CoastAlaska News – Juneau)Update, July 12, 2017, 10:30 a.m.: Alaska Marine Highway officials are extending the final bid deadline for the ferry Taku another three weeks.Spokeswoman Meadow Bailey says it’s because an interested buyer wants to tour the 54-year-old ship.Bids were originally due by July 7. Officials pushed that back a week and a half on Monday. Now, bids aren’t due until Aug. 8.***Someone is interested in buying the retired ferry Taku.Listen nowAs a result, the Alaska Marine Highway System is giving interested parties an extra week and a half to submit bids.The 54-year-old ship has been out of service for two years. It’s been put out to bid twice before, first at $1.5 million, then at $700,000.But no offers were made.The latest attempt, advertised June 19, listed no minimum price. Bids were scheduled to be opened July 7. That deadline was then extended until July 18.Ferry spokeswoman Meadow Bailey said the new deadline came at the request of an interested party.“Obviously, there is not a huge rush on this,” Bailey said. “We have been working with the Taku for several months now. So we were happy to fulfill that request.”Bailey said the marine highway is not identifying the interested party or parties.The Taku was tied up in 2015 to save money.It worked, but needed minor repairs and certifications required for all passenger ships.It’s been moored at Ketchikan’s Ward Cove since then.The Taku sailed mostly Southeast routes. It’s about 350 feet long. It can carry up to 50 vehicles and 350 passengers. It has 40 staterooms, a cafeteria, observation lounges and a covered solarium.If it can’t be sold, it could be scrapped.Editor’s note: This report was updated with information about a second extension of the bid deadline.last_img read more

Saaho box office prediction Did KRK aka Kamaal R Khan change his

first_imgPrabhas’ Saaho movie new postersInstagramFilm critics and trade analyst KRK aka Kamaal R Khan has denied the allegations that he changed his box office predictions for Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor’s upcoming movie Saaho for money.The makers of Saaho released its much-awaited teaser in four languages like Hindi, Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam on June 13. The first look video registered massive response with its digital views counts crossing 60 million in 24 hours. While everyone praised the team, Kamaal R Khan had gone on to predict that it looks like a video game and it would be a huge disaster at the worldwide box office.”It’s a brilliant #SaahoTeaser like a video game. This 300Cr super budget film will be a super flop at the box office,” tweeted KRK adding, “Nobody should have problem with the video game type teaser of #Saaho while producers said very honestly that “let the game begin”! Means they are honestly saying that it’s a game not the film so now you decide whether you want to watch it or not.”But four days later, Kamaal R Khan changed his prediction, as he tweeted on June 17, “Karan Johar agreed to pay only 70Cr for Hindi version of #Saaho! But Bhushan kumar paid 100Cr for all the rights of Hindi version and definitely it’s the best decision. @itsBhushanKumar will get very good profit for sure. Because film is going to become a sure shot hit in Hindi.”Saaho will clash with Mission Mangal and Batla House at the box office. Kamaal R Khan conducted a survey to which of these film, the viewers want to watch. About 63 per cent of the audience said that they would want to watch Saaho. Mission Mangal and Batla House 17 and 12 per cent votes, respectively and 8 per cent of the voters said that their choice depends on his review of these films. KRK’s poll on TwitterTwitterAfter seeing the results of his poll on Twitter, KRK said that Saaho would become a big hit. He tweeted, “I confirm that #Saaho will become a hit and Prabhas will become one of the big star in the Bollywood also. It’s really very good that Bollywood will get one super star who is equally popular in south also.”Some of his followers slammed him for changing his predictions for money. Responding to them, KRK tweeted, “Many people are saying that I have changed my opinion about #Saaho for money. But actually I have changed my opinion after the survey result. For me the teaser is still a computer game. But if ppl like it then film is going to be a hit and I am always with the choice of public.”last_img read more

UPDATE Memo Details Allegations Against Longtime HISDs Furr Principal

first_img Share Laura IsenseePrincipal Bertie Simmons listened to a freshman read his first essay.Seventeen years ago, Bertie Simmons came out of retirement to turn around Furr High school in east Houston. She helped improve the school and win it ten million dollars in a national competition.But the Houston Independent School District (HISD) said on Wednesday night that Simmons had been temporarily relieved of her duties as principal of the school. On Thursday, the school district alleged that the principal’s temporary reassignment is because of a flap over uniforms.HISD says they won’t provide specific details to protect people’s privacy and that administrators are working with campus leaders to make sure there’s no disruption to class.News 88.7 has obtained a copy of the memo that details those allegations.In that memo, dated Sept. 29, 2017, the area superintendent for schools on the east side, Jorge Arredondo, told Furr High School’s principal that she didn’t follow the district’s decision to relax the student dress code after Harvey. He also alleged that Bertie Simmons verbally threatened student with a baseball bat. Arredondo ordered her to stay home and away from the campus she’s led since 2000.View Fullscreen Meanwhile, Simmons’ attorney, Scott Newar, wrote Superintendent Richard Carranza that all these claims are false.He argued in the letter that the district left it up to individual principals how to handle uniforms, citing examples from other principals at Lamar High and Hogg Middle. Newar explained that since Furr High has a history with gangs, Simmons’ strict uniform policy helps reduce violence. What’s more, both the district and Furr High gave out free uniforms to help students who lost clothes during the flood.As for a threat of using a baseball bat, Newar acknowledged that Simmons has routinely — and playfully — joked about a bat in her office. But he said that “it defies credulity and commons sense” that Simmons could threaten someone since she is five feet tall and 83 years old.While the investigation is pending, both the district and Simmons attorney have declined to comment.last_img read more

Google Pixel 4 Will Have Motion Control And Face Unlock Features

first_img ⓒ 2018 TECHTIMES.com All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission. MERGE AR/VR Headset – Augmented and Virtual Reality Goggles, 300+ Experi… ENDS IN $29.99$39.99 Bestseller (545) Bestseller Ads by Amazon Motion ControlPixel 4 is set to debut the new Motion Control feature, which will allow users to enter commands to their smartphone using simple hand gestures. The technology makes use of Google’s Soli motion-sensing radar that was developed by the Advanced Technology and Projects team.The upcoming smartphone will have a miniature version of the Soli radar that will allow the device to sense small motions around it. It will then use software algorithms to recognize specific gestures and read them as commands. Users will be able to silence phone calls, snooze alarms, or even skip songs on their playlist by simply waving their hand.Google boasted that these are just some of the things that its Motion Sense technology could do and that there could be more in store for it in the future. The new feature will only be available in select Pixel countries at launch, with other regions likely to receive it once Google secures the necessary approvals.Face UnlockGoogle is also hoping to leverage the Soli motion-sensing technology to give the Pixel 4 an easier and more streamlined face unlock feature. Users can simply reach for their smartphone and Soli will automatically activate its face unlock sensors. If the sensors and algorithms can recognize the user’s face, the system will open the device.This offers a more efficient alternative to other face unlock systems. Most of them require users to hold their smartphone a certain way, strike up a pose, wait for the system to activate and then swipe the screen to open the device. Pixel 4 will do all of these in one swift motion.Pixel 4 owners will also be able to use the face unlock feature for app authentication and secure payments. This could prove to be a godsend, especially for people who need more security for their mobile transactions.Data ProtectionDespite using image data for its facial recognition technology, Google said Pixel 4 will not share users’ personal information with any of its other services. All images used for face unlock will be safely stored in the smartphone’s Titan M security chip, making sure that none of them will be transferred from owners’ devices.Sensor data used for the Pixel 4’s Soli feature is processed exclusively on the smartphone and are not saved or shared with Google’s other services.News about the Pixel 4 were first unveiled back in June, when Google itself leaked several images of the upcoming phone over the internet. A photo of the new smartphone’s camera module and backplate were released by the company through Twitter ahead of its availability.

Costa Rican students insectbased foods take top spots at international competition

first_imgRelated posts:Costa Rican students turn larvae, crickets into nutritious meals to fight hunger Researchers find specimen of Costa Rican frog believed to be extinct Scientists from 15 countries study deep carbon sources in Costa Rica Sexual rebellion and murder among the bees Tico students took the two top spots in an international competition for their innovative ideas for fighting malnutrition with insect-based food.Two teams from the University of Costa Rica (UCR) took first and second place Tuesday in the international category of the U.S. Institute of Food Technologists (IFT)’s  “Developing Solutions for Developing Countries Competition.” The annual awards recognize the top three best scientific projects proposing food solutions for developing countries.Earlier this year, local teams from the UCR’s Food Technology School were selected among the top three semifinalists among 59 proposals from around the world. The teams presented their projects this week to a jury at IFT’s Annual Conference in Chicago, and debated in a panel with the judges and members of all participating teams. Along with the international finalists, there were three projects from U.S. universities.The winning Tico team presented a product called “Cricketas” – cookies made from powdered crickets and sweet potatoes. The project aims to improve nutrition for children in rural communities in Costa Rica’s northern zone, including Los Chiles, La Cruz, Upala and Guatuso.Second place went to the Tico team that produced “Molibannann,” patties made out of plantains and mealworm larvae (Tenebrio molitor). The students designed the product for feeding children with malnutrition problems in Haiti.A team from the University Putra Malaysia took the third spot with a product called Coco-Wormy.IFT competition winners receive $3,000 and the runner-up gets $1,000.The Ticos attendance at the competition was a real challenge as organizers only paid for travel and accommodations for one person per project. But UCR authorities campaigned to raise funds to send all group members to Chicago.Read about the winning projects: Costa Rican students turn larvae, crickets into nutritious meals to fight hunger Larva patties could help feed malnourished children in Haiti, while cookies made from crickets could help children from impoverished communities in Costa Rica’s Northern Zone.

Boeing 787 Dreamliner finally takes off over two years late

first_imgBoeing 787 Dreamliner takes off Taking off from Paine Field near Boeing’s plan in Washington, the 787 Dreamliner circled around Puget Sound for its test flight.  Its original plans to fly for a maximum of five hours were contingent on good weather.With its lightweight body, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner was intended to fly with 20% less fuel on long-haul services.  This claim is currently being questioned as last minute titanium reinforcements are said to have increased the weight of the aircraft.Much rides on the 787 for Boeing, who has 55 customers waiting on some 840 aircraft understood to be worth some US$140 billion. Boeing has successfully launched its much-delayed Boeing 787 Dreamliner today, amidst much fanfare and a crowd of 16,000, days after it completed its high speed runway test.Boeing’s Dreamliner prototype ZA001 took off at exactly 10:27am local time, after a little delay, signalling the first time a plane made from some 50% composite materials was able to take to the skies.Lasting three hours and four minutes, the first test flight comes after weeks of intensive testing and a rigorous new schedule, which saw the prototype only completing its high speed test, where the nose lifted off the ground, passed just last weekend.

first_img by David Friend, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 23, 2018 6:29 am PDT Last Updated Mar 23, 2018 at 7:01 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Q&A: Four-time Juno nominee Jessie Reyez on why she refuses to shun awards shows VANCOUVER – Jessie Reyez is a leading contender heading into this weekend’s Junos, but the breakout singer says she’s not letting the awards buzz go to her head.“The last thing I want to do is get too happy,” the fiery 27-year-old musician said of her four nominations — a tally matched only by rockers Arcade Fire this year.“I feel like it’s dangerous to get complacent and celebrate too much… You can’t get comfortable.”But that doesn’t mean Reyez isn’t craving recognition.The Toronto-raised performer with Colombian roots says she’s excited about her Juno nods and what lies ahead this year. She’s in the running for best R&B/soul recording, best music video, breakthrough artist of the year and the Juno Fan Choice award.Reyez will also perform her single “Figures” on Sunday’s Junos broadcast airing live on CBC. Other nominated acts slated to play include fellow Toronto newcomer Daniel Caesar, Diana Krall, Arkells and Lights. The show at Vancouver’s Rogers Arena will be hosted by pop crooner Michael Buble.The telecast caps off a weekend of accolades for Canadian music, starting at the Juno Awards gala dinner on Saturday where most trophies are handed out. The event will be streamed on the CBC Music website.Reyez spoke to The Canadian Press about making her first impression on Junos viewers, and why she’s still chasing awards, even if Canada’s biggest hip hop acts refuse to submit their work for consideration to some awards shows.CP: You’re coming off a steady run of tour dates but this Junos performance is among your first on a big-time awards show. What’s going through your mind as you prepare?Reyez: A lot of people don’t know me, and for a lot of people this will be their first time hearing me. So it’s going to be me trying to make that moment as potent as possible. Not a lot of embellishments. It’s going to be honest. It’s going to be me.CP: You have a reputation for laying your emotions bare on the stage, sometimes even bringing yourself to tears when you sing. How do you consistently deliver these raw performances?Reyez: The stories in the songs come from my real life. And it’s kind of like, ah man, at the risk of sounding cheesy, it’s kind of like a wound, like a cut. People want to get over things, so (they) move forward and don’t think about it, but when you make a song, it’s there forever. If you go back to it, and get lost in it, it’s like digging your finger into that cut. I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t cringe when I put my finger in a cut.CP: The song “Gatekeeper,” from your debut EP “Kiddo” released early last year, felt especially potent in the wake of the #MeToo movement. It’s a vivid retelling of your experience with a powerful music industry player who tried to pressure you into sex with promises of fame. What’s it like seeing that song take on greater significance amid conversations about sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry?Reyez: It was a real story of something that happened to me, so it didn’t really hit me until after (the song was finished). I didn’t even think (of the impact it could have) until me and the producer were done and he was like, “This is crazy.” It messed me up more when we were in meetings and we’d play it. You’d see visceral reactions. You would see some girls just go tense and their eyes tear up because they see themselves in that situation and they went through it.CP: You’ve been secretive about the status of your debut full-length album, saying you’re a perfectionist and it’ll see the light of day “when God wants.” What’s the hold-up?Reyez: I want it to be great. I want it to be something that I’m proud of in 10 years. I want it to be something that, if I’m lucky enough to have kids they’ll be like, “Yo, remember when mom made this?” You know what I mean? I want there to be pride in it, my parents to be proud of it. I want accolades.CP: You’ve mentioned previously that one of your aspirations is having a shelf of Grammys. That’s pretty ambitious out of the gate.Reyez: That’s definitely my goal… but I’m still a rookie. That’s why I’m trying to do this for the long haul. I’m trying to think of the 10-year plan and the calibre of music I need to make. I’ve been lucky enough to work with a lot of dope musicians. Any time I’m in a (recording) session, I try to walk in like a sponge and take notes, learn and try to get better.CP: Some of your fellow Toronto hip hop artists have shunned big awards shows like the Grammys and Junos in recent years under the belief they don’t give the music genre its due. (Drake and the performers on his OVO Sound label chose not to submit their work to the Junos for consideration this year and the rapper has famously shunned the Grammys.) Why have you decided to set your sights on these trophies?Reyez: I know (there’s talk) about how a lot people of colour don’t get recognized, a lot of hip hop music doesn’t get recognized. For me, I try to always look at the positive. If I get to hold that (Grammy) one day, I can say, “OK, dope. This little chick that was born in… Toronto, this little Colombiana woman of colour, a minority female, did it.” I want to be able to say that so my two little nieces can feel like they can do anything.CP: One trait that stands out about your personality is this determined trajectory you’ve set yourself on. What’s your mantra?Reyez: “You only lose when you quit.” It’s crazy, eh? All those cliches you hear in school and kind of brush off —because they seem to lose potency — are the keys to life. I wish more kids knew that.— This interview has been edited and condensed.—Follow @dfriend on Twittercenter_img Jessie Reyez is seen in this undated handout photo.
