Cambridge University to return Benin bronze to Nigeria in historic moment

2021.10.16 17:01 autotldr Cambridge University to return Benin bronze to Nigeria in historic moment

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 55%. (I'm a bot)

Nigeria's National Commission for Museums and Monuments will receive a Benin bronze cockerel from Cambridge's Jesus College later this month - in a move the university called the "First institutional return of its kind."
The Benin bronze was given to Jesus College by a father of a student in 1905, after it was first acquired in a 1897 expedition by British forces into the historic kingdom of Benin - now part of modern-day Nigeria - which resulted in the looting of thousands of bronzes from the region.
In November 2019, the college announced it would be returning the bronze to Nigeria after calling it a "Royal ancestral heirloom" and stating that it "Belongs with the current Oba at the Court of Benin."
Cambridge University said in a statement that delegates from Nigeria's National Commission for Museums and Monuments and Benin would visit Jesus College on October 27 for a "Ceremony to complete the handover process and celebrate the rightful return of the Bronze."
"The Oba of Benin, Omo N'Oba N'Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Ewuare II said of the bronze's return:"We are indeed very pleased and commend Jesus College for taking this lead in making restitution for the plunder that occurred in Benin in 1897.
The return of the Benin bronze to Nigeria comes as momentum continues to gather for campaigns for museums, galleries and other institutions across the UK to return artifacts looted during Britain's colonial era to their nation of origin.

2021.10.16 17:01 _terencefox [S] [USA-NY] Fuji XF 16-80mm F4 OIS WR, Fuji XF 3mm F2 R WR [W] Paypal, Local Cash

Timestamp
I pared down to just the X100V recently so I'm selling these. Look forward to my YouTube video where I talk about how your camera needs to inspire joy and how I'm not going to bore you with all the specs like the other YouTube videos do. Chasing specs is just not what matters; what matters is that my camera looks a little bit like a Leica, which I can't afford.
Two extremely capable lenses, you're set for a huge range of situations if you get both and I would appreciate the bundle! Both lens come with original caps for both sides of the lens and the lens hood.
16-80mm F4: Truly mint condition, it hasn't left my apartment since I bought it. Asking $600
35mm F2: I bought this from Lensrentals after renting it for two weeks, but it's in very good condition. No nicks or scratches on the body and the glass is pristine. Also includes a B+W UV filter. Asking $250
Please send a PM as I won't see any chats. Prices include all shipping and fees within CONUS and only Paypal will be accepted as payment.
Thanks for looking!

2021.10.16 17:01 thisistherightname I'm thinking of sending like 500 red roses to a close male friend for his birthday. Is this a good gift?

We've known each other 13 years, and been very close but go long periods without seeing each other for various reasons. He loves roses, and red ones have special meaning to him and this is his 40th bday. Is this a good gift? Alternative ideas welcome!

2021.10.16 17:01 Jimmy_Chung How do you guys balance work and the inflexible (uncertainty) of dates?

I'm booked for a TV commercial next week and the shooting day still hasn't been confirmed. I work part-time and need to know what days I can work. It's a nightmare, I need to let my boss know and I can't cancel my work at the last minute. The only alternative I can see is being fully unemployed in order to pursue acting! How do all of you aspiring actors manage working and auditions/shoots etc?
