For Dany, "Paris is a city in constant motion, to represent this movement properly, we have to understand the concept of stillness. Paris is also influenced by the people who visit or settle there. Self-portrait of Paris with Cat is not only about the French capital, but also about all those who come there with a dream. "Dany explained that "Drawing is another way of writing". The hand-made book is intended to be a tribute to this form of communication which is increasingly being abandoned for electronic bidolas.

Madariaga virus (MADV) has been detected in Haiti

The Madariaga virus (MADV), also known as South American eastern equine encephalitis virus (EEEV), has recently been detected in Haiti.

The virus was primarily found in animals in South and Central America. The first human outbreak occurred in 2010 in Panama. Now, scientists reported that between 2015 and 2016, they have identified eight children in Haiti with the Madariaga virus (MADV), or South American eastern equine encephalitis virus (EEEV).

Madariaga is a mosquito-borne disease transmitted to humans from animals like horses, mice, rats and bats. Symptoms from the patients affected by Madariaga virus resemble those seen in dengue fever infection.

Haiti's Houses Aren't Sturdy Enough to Withstand Large Quakes

Haiti lies right on the boundary of the Caribbean and North American plates. Earthquakes typically occur along the jigsaw-puzzle pieces of Earth's crust, called plates, which move relative to one another, most of the time at an imperceptibly slow pace. These plates move around 2 cm per year. These movements cause seismic movement along active fault lines which have been identified in two main areas of the country. In the case of the Haiti quake, the Caribbean and North American plates slide past one another in an east-west direction. This is known as a strike-slip boundary. The first of these is in the sea, along the North coast. This fault line runs from East to West and extends into the Cibao valley in the Dominican Republic.

Job Description of a Court Interpreter

The job of a Court Interpreters is to translate information from one language into another for the court systems. They work with lawyers, witnesses and defendants to relay information for depositions, hearings and other court cases. It is an Interpreter's job to orally translate everything that is said. They should be fluent in multiple languages as per requirement of the court and have the ability to understand the tone of conversation in languages known because they communicate back and forth among the people who do not share a common language.

The goal of an interpreter is to have people hear the interpretation as if it were the original. He must render a complete and accurate interpretation or translation, without altering, omitting, or adding anything to what is stated or written, and without explanation.

How to Become a Court Interpreter

A Court Interpreter is someone who works with the court system to provide language interpretation for those who do not speak fluently the language used in the court. Court interpreters are called upon for special judicial cases that require translating oral speech into another language. Suppose, if any witnesses have been called to the stand who don't speak English or the language primarily used in the court, such witnesses should have a reliable way of expressing themselves acceptable in the eye of law.

Although a college degree or certification is often required to become a court interpreter, there are exceptions as the most important skill is the ability to speak two languages fluently. However, conversational fluency is only the starting point, because court translators and interpreters must also understand the court system and its vocabulary and terminology.
