Schools and universities, as well as students, teachers, and academics are intentionally targeted for attack in conflicts worldwide, the Global Coalition to Protect Education from Attack said in a 250-page study released today. “Education Under Attack 2014” identifies 70 countries where attacks occurred between 2009 and 2013, including 30 where there was a pattern of deliberate attacks.
“Schools, students, and staff are not just caught in the crossfire, but are all too often the targets of attacks,” said Diya Nijhowne, director at the Global Coalition. “They are bombed, burned, shot, threatened, and abducted precisely because of their connection to education. They are soft, easy targets, and governments and armed groups need to protect them from being used as a tactic of war.”
Both armed non-state groups and national military and security forces are attacking education to advance their own interests, the Global Coalition said. They may be retaliating against a community’s perceived support for the opposition; seeking to demonstrate a lack of government control by harming schools and teachers, symbols of the state; attacking forces based in or using a school building; or opposing the spread of ideas deemed to be objectionable, such as the education of girls.

Video of Jonny performing a new solo piece with the London Contemporary Orchestra.
For this particular piece, he is looping a phrase which he plays at the very beginning. The looper is currently unknown, but he is playing his Gibson Les Paul Standard along with his Vox AC30.
Jonny also performed for the first time on his Ondes Musicales, and also for the first time on a Tanpura.
A workspace at Love&Partners in Brooklyn, NY. Plants are clearly an important component of a productive workspace.
The studio contains a large collection of plants, which act as a natural filter to purify the air.
