Roosevelt statue to be removed from American Museum of Natural History

first_imgSeanPavonePhoto/iStockBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A statue of Theodore Roosevelt outside the American Museum of Natural History in New York City that has been criticized for symbolizing colonialism and racism will be removed, the city announced Sunday.The statue, which is owned by the city, was unveiled in 1940 and sits on public park land outside the museum’s Central Park West entrance. The memorial features Roosevelt on horseback with a Native American man and an African man by his side.“The American Museum of Natural History has asked to remove the Theodore Roosevelt statue because it explicitly depicts Black and Indigenous people as subjugated and racially inferior,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement. “The City supports the Museum’s request. It is the right decision and the right time to remove this problematic statue.”In a statement on its website, the museum, which is currently closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, said the statue has “long been controversial because of the hierarchical composition that places one figure on horseback and the others walking alongside, and many of us find its depictions of the Native American and African figures and their placement in the monument racist.”The museum said a city commission considered removing the statue in 2017 and 2018 but didn’t reach a consensus. The city “directed that it should stay in place with additional interpretation and context to be provided by the Museum,” the statement said.Last year, the museum debuted an exhibition on the statue’s history and modern-day reactions, but that “in the current moment, it is abundantly clear that this approach is not sufficient.”The Equestrian Statue in front of the Museum has long been controversial for the racial hierarchy it depicts. The Museum has asked that it be moved.

In a statement to the New York Times, one of his descendants expressed approval of the decision to remove the monument.“The world does not need statues, relics of another age, that reflect neither the values of the person they intend to honor nor the values of equality and justice,” Roosevelt’s great-grandson, Theodore Roosevelt IV, said. “The composition of the Equestrian Statue does not reflect Theodore Roosevelt’s legacy. It is time to move the statue and move forward.”It is not yet known when the statue will be removed or where it will go, the Times said. The museum is naming its Hall of Biodiversity after Roosevelt, according to the Times.Protests over the death of George Floyd while in police custody last month have brought greater attention to statues that are associated with racial injustice, from monuments of Confederate generals to the explorer Christopher Columbus.In that vein, New York City announced on Friday that it is considering reviewing monuments to historic figures, including George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.Following the announcement of the Roosevelt statue’s removal, New York State Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis said on social media, “First, they go after our Nation’s Founding Fathers — Washington and Jefferson — in City Hall. Now TR??!! This is insanity and it has to stop now.” Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Wind-driven trends in Antarctic sea-ice drift

first_imgThe sea-ice cover around Antarctica has experienced a slight expansion in area over the past decades1, 2. This small overall increase is the sum of much larger opposing trends in different sectors that have been proposed to result from changes in atmospheric temperature or wind stress3, 4, 5, precipitation6, 7, ocean temperature8, and atmosphere or ocean feedbacks9, 10. However, climate models have failed to reproduce the overall increase in sea ice11. Here we present a data set of satellite-tracked sea-ice motion for the period of 1992–2010 that reveals large and statistically significant trends in Antarctic ice drift, which, in most sectors, can be linked to local winds. We quantify dynamic and thermodynamic processes in the internal ice pack and show that wind-driven changes in ice advection are the dominant driver of ice-concentration trends around much of West Antarctica, whereas wind-driven thermodynamic changes dominate elsewhere. The ice-drift trends also imply large changes in the surface stress that drives the Antarctic ocean gyres, and in the fluxes of heat and salt responsible for the production of Antarctic bottom and intermediate waters.last_img read more

Serena Williams is standing in solidarity with domestic violence survivors: ‘I need to let people know’

first_imgJuly 11, 2018 /Sports News – National Serena Williams is standing in solidarity with domestic violence survivors: ‘I need to let people know’ Written by [email protected]/Instagram(NEW YORK) — Serena Williams only lends her megawatt celebrity to shine a light on causes she believes in. And one such cause is domestic violence, an issue plaguing women in their most intimate spaces.“I’ve been fortunate enough not to experience domestic violence, but one in every four women either experience it [in their lifetimes] or know someone who’s been through it,” she told Good Morning America last month inside New York City’s Tictail Market.Williams, 36, was in the Lower East Side marketplace to help unveil a nearby street mural commissioned by Allstate Foundation Purple Purse. The 23-time Grand Slam tennis champion and the program’s ambassador is partnering with Purple Purse to raise awareness of domestic violence paired with financial abuse.Purple Purse has helped more than 1.3 million domestic violence survivors, who are also suffering from financial abuse, since 2005. The foundation has invested more than $60 million toward survivor services such as curriculum around asset-building along with job-training and job-readiness programs.Williams told GMA that after she read these statistics, she wanted to get involved to raise awareness.“I need to let people know. Like, how do I not know about this?” she asked rhetorically. “I want to be a part of making other people aware of it because we need to bring those numbers down. That’s way too high… that’s shocking.”It’s a topic that is ever close to Williams’ heart, especially since she’s raising her own young daughter.The tennis star and her husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, welcomed their daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. in September. Three months later, Williams and Ohanian, 35, wed in an intimate New Orleans ceremony.“I have a daughter and she could potentially be in a situation like this,” Williams said.“I want her to be able [to] speak up about it,” she continued. “I want her to know that she doesn’t have to be in this situation. I want her to know there’s a way out.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.center_img Beau Lundlast_img read more
