Ebola UN tells Brussels meeting world must stay on course to get

The pledge was made at a high-level international conference on Ebola sponsored by the European Union in Brussels, Belgium, aimed at maintaining global attention on the crisis, taking stock of the fight against the epidemic and on coordinating next steps and discussing the recovery process. The UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy on Ebola, Dr. David Nabarro, said that current phase of the response “is the hardest part and a bumpy road” and urged the international community to remain fully engaged until the task is completed, especially as the virus is moving and as some communities are reticent about being engaged in the response. Dr. Nabarro, as well as World Health Organization Director-General Dr. Margaret Chan, both emphasized the need to build trust with communities to eradicate the disease, which has affected nearly 24,000 people with more than 9,714 deaths. “We need to build trust with the communities,” Dr. Chan said, and added: “Without meaningful community engagement, we will not get to zero cases.”Dr. Nabarro also noted that the 22 million people living in the affected countries need to be able to access the employment, markets and services that enable them to stay healthy.He said that a gap of around $900 million remained to fund the response in the next six months, with $400 million urgently needed for critically important activities to get to zero cases.The head of the UN Development Programme (UNDP), Helen Clark, called for international support to the three most affected countries – Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea – so that serious development setbacks are as short-lived as possible. Miss Clark said that representatives from those countries “have come today to tell us of their determination to coordinate their recovery, and to work with regional and global partners.”“The UN will continue to support each stage of this journey; the drive to zero, the early recovery, the medium and longer term development,” she said. Ms. Clark also stressed that the international community must “stay the course” on getting to and staying at zero, as well as on supporting those affected by the disease.UNDP said it was speaking on behalf of UN system partners including the World Bank, World Food Programme (WFP), the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), WHO, UN Population Fund (UNFPA), the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the UN Emergency Mission for Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) present at the conference today.Today’s gathering was not a donor pledging conference and was seen as a critical staging meeting for international dialogue on post-Ebola recovery that precedes the annual International Monetary Fund (IMF)-World Bank Spring meetings and a UN conference on Ebola to be held later this year, and before a planned Secretary-General’s pledging conference later this year.“At the earliest opportunity, health systems must be strengthened, water and sanitation provision extended, and living conditions in informal settlements improved,” Miss. Clark said. read more

UN condemns terrorist attack in Kabul underscores need to protect civilians

“Indiscriminate attacks against civilians are grave violations of human rights and international humanitarian law and can never be justified,” said UN Secretary-General António Guterres in a statement attributable to his Spokesman. “Those responsible for today’s attack must be brought to justice,” he added, underlining the need to reinforce the fight against terrorism and violent extremism The UN chief also expressed his sympathies to the families of the victims, wished a speedy recovery to those injured, and reaffirmed the solidarity of the UN with the people and the Government of Afghanistan. Also today, the UN Security Council, in a press statement stressed that those responsible for the bombing should be held accountable, and called on all UN Member States, in accordance with their obligations under international law and relevant Council resolutions, to cooperate actively with the Government of Afghanistan and all other relevant authorities in this regard. Reaffirming that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constituted one of the most serious threats to international peace and security, members of the Security Council “reiterated that any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed.”Hundreds of people – mostly civilians – were killed and injured when a suicide attacker detonated a vehicle-borne explosive device in downtown Kabul’s Wazir Akhbar Khan area, which also houses a number of diplomatic missions, this morning (local time). While the Security Council says the attack resulted in more than 80 deaths and at least 350 injuries, news reports suggest the casualty numbers are expected to rise. In addition to the loss of lives and injuries, the explosion also resulted in considerable damage to the immediate and surrounding, with some embassies being seriously affected. “Beyond the immeasurable human suffering caused by today’s attack, the deliberate detonation of a massive truck bomb in a civilian area, particularly during the peaceful month of Ramadan, is morally reprehensible and an outrage,” Tadamichi Yamamoto, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Afghanistan, said in a news release, underscoring that the attack is a serious violation of humanitarian law. “There can be no exceptions: the use of explosive weapons in civilian-populated areas must stop,” Mr. Yamamoto, who is also the head of the UN Assistance Mission, known as UNAMA, added. read more

UN chief welcomes first concrete step in normalizing EritreaEthiopia relationship

“The Secretary-General notes that diplomatic overtures to ease tensions and resolve the longstanding dispute between the two countries will have a far reaching positive impact on the whole region,” said his spokesperson, Stéphane Dujarric in a statement on Thursday.“The Secretary-General once again reiterates the readiness of the United Nations to play a role in support of the two countries in the implementation of the boundary decision or in any other area they would deem useful for the United Nations to assist,” Mr. Dujarric concluded.Last week, Ethiopia under its new Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed, announced its readiness to finally accept and implement a 2002 border agreement with Eritrea, that ended two years of bloody conflict in which thousands died. Since then, the countries have remained on a war-footing.Mr. Guterres responded to the 21 June thaw in relations by welcoming the “positive step” and commended efforts by the leaders of both countries “to achieve sustainable peace and good neighbourly relations which, in turn, will have positive repercussions in the entire Horn of Africa region.”This week’s diplomatic initiative to the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, was led by Eritrean Foreign Minister, Osman Saleh, and according to news reports, Prime Minister Ahmed announced that Ethiopian Airlines would restart flights to Etritrea, for the first time since 1998. read more

Father shames council that sent him letter riddled with spelling mistakes

A father fined for taking his child out of school for a family holiday has shamed a council after it sent him a letter riddled with spelling mistakes.Daniel Moore, 31, removed five-year-old son Charlie from class for five days so the family could go on holiday to Majorca.He knew he would receive a fine, but Mr Moore, from Exmouth, Devon, was shocked by the amount of spelling errors and typos in the letter informing him.Mistakes in the letter, sent by Devon County Council on behalf of Dawn Stabb, Head of Education and Learning for the council, include ‘hte’, ‘guitly’, ‘notie’ and ‘dteailed’.Mr Moore, who went on holiday with his wife Samantha and their children, Alice and Charlie, said he was disappointed that a letter with so many errors could be sent from the department responsible for his children’s education. “I’ve said that I’ll pay the £60 fine but I just wanted to make sure people could see how sloppy the letter was.”To help the council see their errors, Mr Moore went over the letter with a red pen and made corrections, mockingly marking it with a grade of D- telling them: “Must do better.”A spokesman for Devon County Council said: “We have been trialling a new IT printing system and a number of mistakes were unfortunately not picked up before this letter was despatched.”It is an embarrassing error and we have taken steps to ensure it won’t be repeated.” Mr Moore was shocked by the amount of spelling errors and typos in the letter informing himCredit:APEX “I saw a couple of spelling errors as soon as I opened the letter but as I read on more mistakes appeared,” said Mr Moore.”At first I thought it was quite funny but when you place it into the context that these people are responsible for the future of children’s education it is concerning.”We took our son out of school for five days to go on holiday to Majorca. He even marked the letter Mr Moore was shocked by the amount of spelling errors and typos in the letter informing him “I was fully aware of the risks involved but thought it was well worth it for the experience of the holiday and we don’t regret it one bit.

Make changes in diet to fight ageing

first_imgThe key to ageing gracefully is simple – eat healthy. So make changes in your diet instead of going for Botox for wrinkle treatment, say experts. Nutritionists have a few suggestion that can be taken into consideration: Include certain foods in diet which are rich in vitamins like riboflavin, niacin and cyanocobalamin. Exclude poor quality of food which causes inflammation and ultimately affects skin.Hydrate the body so as to remove the toxins from the body. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfSkin collagen gets damaged when there is high consumption of sugar and processed carbohydrates, while foods like fruits and vegetables are good for skin. Deep fried food can add to inflammation. On the other hand, vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat dairy and lean protein can help fight inflammation. Lettuce, broccoli, spinach, tomato, watermelon, grapefruit, guava, salmon, chickpea, oat meal and brown rice help in curbing inflammation. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveA long way to preventing wrinkles is to eat food items like carrots that are loaded with vitamins. Almonds and walnuts are rich in Vitamin E and help to fight skin problems.Green tea has powerful anti-oxidants to protect skin from damage. Yogurt has probiotics that nourish skin from inside and outside. Honey is hygroscopic in nature. All berries are healthy anti-oxidants. They kill radicals that are in bodies, damaging DNA and cells and causing premature ageing. Berries can fight damages caused by environmental pollutants and toxins. Turmeric acts as anti-oxidants.Alcohol should be avoided as it creates free radicals which damage cells and accelerates ageing.last_img read more

Substitute Phone artfully satisfies your compulsion to swipe and scroll

first_imgSmartphones are inarguably an addictive class of devices, and not just because they put an endless font of information at your fingertips. The very experience of holding the phone and touching it is itself associated with that pleasure — so much so that you might wish you were doing it even when you don’t want to actually use the phone. That’s when you need one of Klemens Schillinger’s “Substitute Phones.”The devices, if you can really call them that, are inert pieces of heavy, high-quality plastic in which are embedded stone beads that let you run your fingers along them to simulate various gestures. The beads roll in place, giving a similar frictionless feel but (I presume) also a pleasant little finger massage.Whether you’re a compulsive swiper, scroller, or zoomer, there’s a model just for you.“The object, which some of us describe as a prosthesis, is reduced to nothing but the motions,” explains Schillinger’s description of the… object. “This calming limitation offers help for smartphone addicts to cope with withdrawal symptoms. The object as a therapeutic approach.”Speaking to Dezeen, Schillinger added that he was inspired not only by the disturbing frequency with which he and others tend to consult their smart devices (and for no particular reason, usually), but also the writer Umberto Eco, who when attempting to stop smoking his pipe, substituted a simple stick.“It was the same thing,” he said, “but without the nicotine, just the physical stimulation. I remembered this and thought to make phones that would provide the physical stimulation but not the connectivity.The Substitute Phone is the second in a series Schillinger is working on relating to our relationships with our devices. The first is the Offline Lamp, which only turns on when you put a smartphone-size object inside its drawer. Both were created for Vienna’s Design Week earlier this year.last_img read more

World Travel Awards announces nominations for 2010

Over 5,000 organizations spanning 162 countries have been nominated by industry peers for a chance to win the most coveted prize in travel and tourism. Nominees range from destinations, tourist boards and airlines to luxury hotels, travel technology providers and adventure tour operators. Online voting was opened at 9am GMT today, and provides both the trade and the consumer an opportunity to support their favourite brands in the bid for travel glory. WTA has also unveiled a series of enhancements to mark the first Grand Tour of a new decade.Technology is top of the agenda with a host of new categories, ranging from “Leading New Hotel Website” to “Leading Dynamic Packaging Product”. The awards programme, which serves to encourage best practice within the industry, is also honouring its commitment to sustainable tourism. A number of new green categories – spanning cruise, destinations, hotels and tour operators – aim to reward those brands striving for innovative and responsible solutions to the environmental crisis. Competition in this year’s WTA will undoubtedly prove hotter than ever. Graham E. Cooke, Founder and President, World Travel Awards, said: “We have been overwhelmed with the tremendous response to self nominations, which have grown a phenomenal 50 per cent on 2009.” “This increase, in the face of a global recession, demonstrates the vital role that World Travel Awards now plays within the travel industry. More multinational companies than ever, ranging from Etihad Airways and TAP Portugal to InterContinental Hotels, Universal Studios and Disney, are spearheading their global marketing campaigns with their award victories,” he added. This level of accountability has led to WTA becoming the “Oscars” of the global travel industry, broadcast by BBC World News and other networks to over 254 million households worldwide and attended by the industry’s key decision makers.Graham E. Cooke added: “As the tension surrounding the awards begins to mount we are looking forward to revealing the leading players at the regional ceremonies during the year, and tracking their progress as they head to London for our Grand Final on the eve of World Travel Market 2010.”last_img read more

Negative Equity Still Plagues LowerPriced Homes

first_img The number of homeowners nationwide with negative equity (a condition commonly known as being “underwater”) has been on the decline for a few years. In 2015, the underwater borrower population dropped by 31 percent, or about 1.5 million borrowers.At the end of 2015, there were 3.2 million underwater borrowers, representing about 6.5 percent of all residential mortgages nationwide—and while negative equity rates have improved overall nationally, the recovery has been imbalanced when it comes to house prices and geography, according to Black Knight Financial Services’ February 2016 Mortgage Monitor released Monday.According to Black Knight, more than half of underwater homes were in the bottom 20 percent of homes by price in their respective markets. Those 3.2 million underwater borrowers represent approximately $126 billion in first- and second-lien mortgage debt.“Throughout 2015, the negative equity population in the U.S. decreased by over 30 percent, bringing another 1.5 million homeowners out from underwater on their mortgages,” said Ben Graboske, Black Knight SVP of Data and Analytics. “However, even after four years of improvement, the recovery has not reached all corners. When we looked at the population by home price levels, we found that over half of the nation’s underwater properties are in the lowest 20 percent of their respective markets. That’s the highest share on record. In fact, while the national negative equity rate is now 6.5 percent, for homes in the lowest price tier, it’s over 16 percent. Furthermore, this group is seeing a slower recovery than the nation as a whole. At the current rate of improvement, it would take more than five years for the negative equity rate in this lowest price tier to reach 2005 levels—roughly two-and-a-half years longer than homes in the top 20 percent.”Black Knight found the most extreme variance from the high-end to the low-end in Detroit, where lower-priced homes were 33 percent more likely to be underwater than higher-priced homes. The bottom 20 percent of homes are still worth 35 percent less than their value at their peak in 2006, while higher-priced homes in Detroit are worth only 7 percent less than their peak values.More than half of all properties that are currently underwater originated during the housing bubble years of 2005 to 2007, according to Black Knight. And while the government’s Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) was intended to allow underwater borrowers to refinance their mortgages, only borrowers with GSE-backed mortgages who are current on their loans are eligible for the program.Click here to view the complete Black Knight February 2016 Mortgage Monitor.

Dbacks president Derrick Hall Franchise still f

first_img D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ The Arizona Cardinals’ preseason came to a close on Thursday night with a 26-7 victory over the Denver Broncos. As the team moves into the regular season, some tough decisions will have to be made about the roster, but for now, head coach Ken Whisenhunt said he couldn’t be more pleased with the players he has worked with over the past month and change.“We’re very fortunate that we had the type of guys in camp, all 90 of them which is now 80, and they did a great job up until this last game of trying to do what we asked them to do and working hard,” Whisenhunt said Thursday. “I’ll sleep great tonight,” Bartel said. While Whiz did say that the Cardinals still have some work to do, he also said that the team had come a long way and that he “couldn’t complement our players enough”. High praise, considering the players had to work out themselves all summer and had to make the most of a shortened camp due to the NFL lockout.One of the players of who Whiz was undoubtedly speaking was quarterback Richard Bartel, who put together a great performance against the Broncos. He completed 12 passes for 216 yards and two touchdowns. He may have allowed a pick, but Bartel looked confident on the ball and in the huddle.With his performance and the injury to John Skelton, Bartel looks like a shoe-in for the Cards’ backup QB position.“I just want to make my case to contribute to this team in anyway possible,” Bartel said after the game on Thursday, adding that this season is the best opportunity he’s ever had in his life.With the real action starting in a little more than a week, Whisenhunt and his Cardinals do have work to do. But with the promise shown by Kevin Kolb, Bartel and Larry Fitzgerald on the offense and Patrick Peterson, Darnell Dockett and A.J. Jefferson on defense, the Cards can take Thursday night to enjoy a postseason that has them on the right track.

Foxs Hume deletes tweets saying Dems dont love c

first_imgFox’s Hume deletes tweets saying Dems don’t love country NEW YORK, N.Y. – Fox News Channel analyst Brit Hume has deleted a Fourth of July tweet that suggested Democrats “sure don’t love” America.Hume had referred to a Gallup poll that said 47 per cent of Americans said they were “extremely proud” to be Americans, the lowest percentage in the 18 years that the polling company has been asking that question. Among Democrats, 32 per cent of poll respondents said this.In his since-deleted tweet, Hume had linked to an article about the poll in a conservative blog that was titled, “Why do Democrats hate America?”“Hate may be too strong a word but they sure don’t love it,” Hume wrote.Hume later wrote that some people thought that wasn’t a fair conclusion from the poll. “I agree and thus the deletion,” he said. A former ABC News correspondent, Hume anchored Fox’s evening newscast before retiring to an analyst’s role.Gallup said that 85 per cent of Democrats reported that they were extremely, very or moderately proud of America.Only 4 per cent of Democrats said they were “not at all” proud of the country, Gallup said.Fox has taken heat for a number of statements made by its personalities and guests in recent weeks. Prime-time host Laura Ingraham likened detention centres where migrant children were separated from their parents to summer camps, and guest Ann Coulter called some of the children “child actors.” Guest Corey Lewandowski made noises belittling a story about a 10-year-old girl with Down’s Syndrome held by authorities.Contributor David Bossie said on the air to a black Democratic strategist that “you’re out of your cotton-picking mind.” Bossie later apologized for the remark and Fox condemned his remarks, calling them “deeply offensive and wholly inappropriate.” by David Bauder, The Associated Press Posted Jul 5, 2018 9:32 am PDT Last Updated Jul 5, 2018 at 8:20 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emaillast_img read more

But most of all, Right now, He was a singing cowboy, Its a moment of naughty joy, too. All other lands, my hero big brother, A twisted hallucination, 134 and 179 of the Constitution…….shall be declared elected by the appropriate Returning Officer”; The word “declared” is italicized to emphasise that a candidate “deemed duly elected” under section 179 of the Constitution must formally be “declared elected by the appropriate returning officer” under section 70 of the Act The National Assembly has proposed that the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) should now formally announce the results of the June 12 1993 election and declare Chief Abiola its winner This proposal raises the question whether INEC constituted under the 1999 Constitution (section 153) has the competence to announce the results of an election that took place 25 years ago and declare a candidate under it the winner so as to constitute him President-elect The power of INEC as conferred on it by paragraph 15 of the Third Schedule to the Constitution is power among other things “to organise undertake and supervise” presidential and other listed elections By its terms the power is power to organize undertake and supervise elections in the present and in the future; it does not authorize or enable the Commission to do anything in relation to an election that took place in the past – 25 years ago – and organized and conducted by a differently constituted Electoral Commission It may be that under the residual clause of paragraph 15 above authorizing INEC to “carry out such other functions as may be conferred upon it by an Act of the National Assembly” the Assembly may make a law enabling INEC in the behalf Even so the problem will still remain as to how the provision of section 70 of the Electoral Act is to be complied with having regard to the specificity of the words “shall be declared elected by the appropriate Returning Officer”; the reference is to the particular returning officer involved in or who took part in the conduct of the particular election President Buhari’s 6th June 2018 Declaration disdains the law of the land in other respects The sacroscanctity and supremacy of the Rule of Law as a principle in the government of society need to be reinterated Although not expressly enshrined by name in our Constitution as is done in some of the modern constitutions in the world like the Constitutions of Romania and Bulgaria and Czechoslovakia’s Charter of Fundamental Rights and Freedoms all three adopted in 1991 after the collapse of communism in the 1989 – 90 world-wide democratic revolution the Rule of Law is embodied and incorporated in our Constitution as an inarticulate major premise to borrow the pithy phrase of the great Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes of the US Supreme Court Thus the supremacy of the Constitution as provided in its section 1(1) enures by extension to the Rule of Law as incorporated in it as an inarticulate major premise overriding any action or declaration of government that is inconsistent with the principle: section 1(3) The question again arises whether the posthumous awards of the national honours of GCFR and GCON to Chief Abiola and Chief Fawehinmi respectively accord or are consistent with the law of the land – National Honours Act The Act does not by its express provisions authorize posthumous awards nor do those provisions give any indication that they contemplate posthumous awards The indication is indeed to the contrary; it (the indication) comes from the provision that “a person” meaning a living not a dead person “shall not be eligible for appointment to any rank of an Order unless he is a citizen of Nigeria” and that “a person shall be appointed to a particular rank of an Order when he receives from the President in person at an investiture held for the purpose (a) the insignia appropriate for that rank; and (b) an instrument under the hand of the President and the public seal of the Federation declaring him to be appointed to that rank” The words “when he receives from the President in person” exclude posthumous awards a view that derives support from the fact that no posthumous award had ever been made in the past to any one before the awards to Chief Abiola and Chief Fawehinmi There is however a provision in the Act that seems to give a lot of leeway to the President It says : “The President may by warrant make provision for the award of titles of honour decorations and dignities” It may be that posthumous awards are not authorized by the Act as a matter of policy decision If so the Act needs to be amended to change the policy President Buhari could not have been more disdainful and more careless he could not have made a greater mockery of the Rule of Law than by his announcement on June 6 2018 of the decision of the Federal Government that “henceforth June 12 will be celebrated as Democracy Day” knowing as he well does that May 29 is enacted by law the Public Holidays Act as Democracy Day and that that could not be changed to June 12 except by amendment of the Act not by mere presidential Declaration; and that his wishes intentions and whims however pure and benevolent are not law as in the days of the absolutist military dictatorship when laws could be made simply by word of mouth later to be put in written form by Decree or Edict It is incredible that knowing all this but still believing himself to be an absolute ruler he went ahead to organize the farce of commemoration ceremony on June 12 at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa His perception of himself as absolute ruler is antithetical to constitutional democracy and constitutes a danger to the country He should be made to shed that perception of himself inhumanity and its culmination in the sad death of its presumed winner.
