Time for Iraqis to make political progress UN political chief says

Briefing the Council on the latest report on the work of the UN Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI), B. Lynn Pascoe, the Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs, warned that the security situation remains fragile and any recent gains could be lost unless they are consolidated with political progress. “Efforts must now focus on achieving the political gains necessary to build trust and confidence across community lines, and to improve the quality of life for all Iraqis, including the delivery of basic services and generating employment,” he said. Mr. Pascoe said the UN believed the best way to build trust was to tackle the issues “at the heart of each community’s competing visions for the future of Iraq,” such as the federal framework of the country, the handling of the status of the northern city of Kirkuk and other disputed areas and revenue-sharing agreements. “The potential is there, and it is ultimately up to the Iraqi people to make sound choices that will allow them to build a sustainable and lasting peace.” The Under-Secretary-General noted that discussions within the Iraqi parliament about the adoption of new electoral laws remains unresolved, although the UN was doing all it could to promote practical compromises. “A failure to come to agreement on a law at this time would be a major setback – not only for the prospects of elections this year but for the larger process of national reconciliation in Iraq.” The situation in Kirkuk has also become more tense and violent in the past week, in part because of the discord over the proposed electoral laws, and Mr. Pascoe stressed that the bloodshed illustrated “how the lack of dialogue and compromise could easily lead to renewed violence.” Strengthening the Iraqi economy must also be a top priority, the Under-Secretary-General added, observing that the spike in oil prices this year has not yet translated into improvements in the lives of ordinary citizens. “Unemployment rates remain stubbornly high, and the same governorates rate consistently low on key socio-economic indicators, such as unemployment, malnutrition and illiteracy. It is estimated that 60 per cent of Iraqis do not have access to one or more essential social services and 15 per cent lack food security.” Ambassador Alejandro Wolff of the United States, speaking on behalf of the Multinational Force (MNF) operating in Iraq, informed the Council that for the past three months the total number of security incidents had reached their lowest level in four years. Since June last year, overall attacks had decreased by 84 per cent and the number of civilian deaths from violence had dropped by 65 per cent. He attributed the gains to the work of both Iraqi and coalition security forces. 6 August 2008Iraqis must focus on political dialogue, reconciliation and bread-and-butter economic issues now that they are seeing improved security, the top United Nations political official told the Security Council today. read more

Rights group to release Sri Lanka report

It said that journalists, the judiciary, human rights activists and opposition politicians are among those who have been targeted in a disturbing pattern of government-sanctioned abuse, often involving the security forces or their proxies. The report documents dozens of cases where government critics have been subjected to verbal and physical harassment, attacks and even killings. Amnesty International will launch a new report next week documenting how the Sri Lankan government has allegedly stepped up its crackdown on dissenting views over the past years through threats, harassment, imprisonment and violent attacks.The document, “Assault on Dissent”, reveals how the government led by President Mahinda Rajapaksa is increasingly equating criticism with treason in a bid to tighten its grip on power, Amnesty International said in a media note today. Amnesty International is a leading international human rights organisation which has been pushing for an international investigation in Sri Lanka into alleged human rights abuses.

Torontonians plan to rally against Presidentelect Donald Trump

Hundreds of Torontonians are expected to turn out for a protest against US President-elected Donald Trump.The Facebook event titled Rally Against Trump, shows over 1,000 people attending, over 4,000 interested and more than 6,000 have been invited as of Saturday afternoon.“We will be gathering to peacefully protest Donald Trump’s legitimacy as US President and to demonstrate how his, and any hateful rhetoric is unacceptable today,” was written on the event page.“We as Canadians will help our neighbors by showing that misogyny, racism, homophobia, xenophobia, sexism, sexual assault, ableism, transphobia and violence are absolutely intolerable,” wrote the page.The event will start at Toronto City Hall at noon on Nov 19. Protestors plan to march to the Trump International Hotel and Tower at Bay and Adelaide streets.“Trump’s campaign and victory points to a frightening and problematic cultural landscape, and this is something that we don’t need a US citizenship to help effect change on,” added the site. read more

New UN AIDS Awareness stamps makes history

An extra six cents added onto each special commemorative stamp will be contributed to the Global Fund for AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria championed by Secretary-General Kofi Annan. The stamps will be issued in three denominations – the Swiss franc, United States dollar and euro. The new stamp, which depicts the UN Secretariat building with a large red AIDS ribbon on its façade, was adapted from a photograph taken by UN photographer Evan Schneider. In addition to the special fundraising stamps, the United Nations Postal Administration (UNPA) also issued a set of three regular commemorative stamps under the AIDS awareness theme. Also today, UNPA issued a stamp in honour of Switzerland’s joining the UN. This follows the historic Swiss referendum in March, which paved the way for Switzerland to become the UN’s 190th. The stamp, a graphic interpretation of a cross and a dove with a Swiss flag in orange and blue tones, was designed by Thierry Clauson. It portrays “vitality, mobility, sensibility,” said the UNPA in its announcement today. read more

The US Is Almost Definitely Going To Next Years Womens World Cup

Monday and Tuesday mark the end of group play in the 2014 CONCACAF Women’s World Cup Qualifiers, with the top two teams from each group advancing to the knockout rounds this weekend — all vying for three spots (possibly four) at next summer’s World Cup. After the first two games, we calculated the expected wins and advancement chances for each team in the tournament, but the standings have changed since last week’s opening matches.After a slow start against Trinidad and Tobago, a more organized U.S. team routed Guatemala 5-0 in its second game, with four of its five goals coming late in the second half. The addition of Tobin Heath up top in the 4-3-3 formation proved lucrative, with Heath tallying two goals — including this sweet little flick into the back of the net:Even though the U.S.’s chances of winning the tournament nominally decreased, from 95.5 percent to 95.1 percent, the No.1-ranked FIFA team in the world is still heavily, heavily favored to win. The U.S. is also a heavy favorite against Haiti on Monday night. Haiti, meanwhile, has only an 8 percent chance of making it to the knockout rounds after losing to a 10-player Trinidad team on Friday.The more interesting matchup on Monday night is Trinidad vs. Guatemala. Trinidad, the tournament’s underfunded Cinderella, currently has an 84 percent chance of advancing to the knockout rounds. If Trinidad wins or ties against Guatemala and Haiti loses to the U.S., the Trinidadians will likely face Costa Rica in the semifinals (where even a loss would leave fourth-place Trinidad with a shot at attending its first World Cup).Below are the updated expected group points and win probabilities for every CONCACAF tournament team:Costa Rica’s upset over Mexico last week moves it to the top of Group B, despite Mexico still having a greater chance of winning the tournament — 3.1 percent compared to Costa Rica’s 1.2 percent. This is a function of the FIFA ratings (which we’re using to calculate the expected wins and advancement probabilities, and which have not been updated to reflect Costa Rica’s recent performances). FIFA currently ranks Mexico at No. 25 and Costa Rica at No. 40. Both Costa Rica and Mexico are locks for the knockout round, but Mexico’s higher rating and record against the U.S. (they’ve beaten the U.S. once and tied them once, while Costa Rica has never won against the Americans) are part of why the Mexican team has a marginally better chance of upsetting the U.S. and winning the tournament.Costa Rica will face last-place Martinique and Mexico will play against Jamaica on Tuesday in the final Group B matches. As the tournament currently stands, the most likely knockout scenarios are the U.S. vs. Mexico in one semifinal and Costa Rica vs. Trinidad in the other. The semifinal matches will be played on Friday and the championship on Sunday, and we’ll update the advancement table again before those games.CORRECTION (Oct. 24, 4:37 p.m.): A previous version of this post included a table with an incorrect column header. The table lists the chances of placing third, not reaching the third-place game. read more

Construction activity continues to fall as decline in unemployment eases

first_imgIRISH CONSTRUCTION FIRMS continued to record falling business activity in February, with the rate of decline little-changed from that seen in January.Figures released by Ulster Bank in the latest Construction Purchasing Managers’ Index show that, despite the continued fall in activity, new orders and employment declined at slower rates.The index posted a reading of 45.3 in February, slightly lower than the 45.8 posted in January. This signaled a marked, and slightly quicker reduction in construction activity during the month. According to respondents, lower new work was a key factor behind the decline as inflows failed to compensate for the completion of projects.The weakest fall in activity was seen on housing projects, with this sector also the only one monitored to post a slower decline than at the start of the year. Commercial and civil engineering each saw a slightly quicker reduction in activity, with the sharper overall fall for work on civil engineering projects.While activity is still falling sharply, the pace of reduction in employment in construction slowed during February and was the weakest in 68 months. Panellists in the index that lowered staffing levels mainly linked this to reduced workloads.Construction firms recorded a sharp and accelerated decline in purchasing activity during February, with the latest fall the fastest since August last year, mainly linked to lower levels of new orders.Firms are expecting an improvement in the wider economic conditions in the next 12 months with business sentiment strengthening for the fourth successive month.Read: Building costs up 3 per cent as material and energy prices rise>More: Planning applications down 17 per cent as construction remains in doldrums>last_img read more

Over 4500 complaints made to Irish Water in three months over poor

first_imgOver 4,500 complaints made to Irish Water in three months over poor service Some of the main issues concerned water quality and customer service. Friday 20 Jan 2017, 3:27 PM Jan 20th 2017, 3:27 PM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 48 Comments By Garreth MacNamee Short URL 10,553 Views center_img Image: Niall Carson Image: Niall Carson He needs to butt-out and stop meddling its a democratic process. He needs to remain silent.A statement from Irish Water this evening read: “The Commission for Energy Regulation (CER) has acknowledged that Irish water are continuing to improve our commitment to good customer service. Over 90% of Irish Water’s  Customer Handbook requirements, which have been agreed with the CER, have now been implemented. This progress is reflected in the decrease in number of customer complaints received by Irish Water.”Earlier this week. Michael McNicholas has defended Irish Water’s €70 million spend on consultants, insisting they were “international experts”.Speaking before the Oireachtas Committee on the Future Funding of Domestic Water Services, he said there is “a perception out there” that money was squandered on consultants, adding: “That is absolutely not the case.”McNicholas said the “international experts” were integral to the establishment of Irish Water. The Ervia boss said the money was spent on software and computer system experts needed to set up the national utility.He said the setup of Irish Water cost €100 million less than any other utility in other countries.With reporting by Christina FinnRead: Landlords rapped on the knuckles for threatening new charges after rent caps >Read: Man arrested in connection to murder of Irene White in 2005 > THERE WERE OVER 4,500 complaints made to Irish water by customers in the last three months of the year, a new report has revealed.In its latest publication, the Commission for Energy Regulation (CER) said most of the issues related to people not getting water or that there were leaks in their system.According to the CER, Irish Water is required to respond to a customer complaint within five working days with a resolution or a plan outlining the steps required to achieve a resolution. The top five issues included:No waterLeaking from boundary boxTimeliness of responseLow pressureWater qualityComplaints to the contentious utility have decreased over time, however.In the preceding six months, there were 15,000 issues.And this afternoon. Sinn Féin MEP Lynn Boylan has warned the EU to “butt-out” of Irish affairs until Environment Minister Simon Coveney submits the Government’s water plan to Brussels.She said: “What the commissioner has to do if he is to fulfill his role is he has to wait until Ireland submits its plan. It won’t be ready, according to Simon Coveney, until late 2017.“Until that point, the commissioner should not be making any point about the Irish situation, just like he shouldn’t make a comment about any other member states. http://jrnl.ie/3196704 Share68 Tweet Email last_img read more

Ancelotti praises Napolis character after victory over Bologna

first_imgCarlo Ancelotti was impressed with the character of his side Napoli in their 3-2 victory over Bologna after the recent setback in Milan.Arkadiusz Milik’s double were levelled up by two headers from set pieces until Dries Mertens netted the winner to seal three points for his side.“It’s a rather unusual period of the season and we haven’t seen any great performances this weekend,” the Coach told Football Italia.“I thought we above all didn’t keep our game under control, as we allowed Bologna to equalise twice from set plays. It should also be noted that Bologna played well and made life difficult, so we had to show character to win this.“Bologna look very motivated and caused us a lot more problems than other teams who faced us at the San Paolo this season.”At the midway stage, Napoli are nine points adrift of leaders Juventus.Sacchi explains Sarri, Conte, and Ancelotti Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Arrigo Sacchi talked about how Sarri has a tougher time at Juventus than Conte at Inter; while Ancelotti’s “blood is boiling” at Napoli.Arrigo Sacchi…“We’re on track, I’d say, with expectations. We had some good results that have only been watered down by an extraordinary Juventus run.“We should be optimistic, as we are closer to the top than we are fifth place. We did everything we could in the Champions League, but this team has not yet expressed its full potential. We can do more and we will improve.“It’s a healthy group with real professionals, so that makes my job easier. We changed a few things from last season and they adapted very well.“There are players like Simone Verdi, Piotr Zielinski, Arkadiusz Milik and Fabian Ruiz who still have more to prove and I expect them to reach another level.“Squad rotation is complicated if you have more than 20 outfield players. Right now, we have 21 and Vlad Chiriches is also coming back from injury.”last_img read more

DTAA with Mauritius Indian firms with high FII holding at risk says

first_imgThe amendment to the double taxation avoidance agreement (DTAA) with Mauritius that paves the way for gradually taxing long-term gains on investments routed through the African country does not augur well for 22 companies that have a high foreign institutional investor (FII) exposure.A report in the Economic Times said that 19 of the 22 BSE500 stocks in which FII holding is above 33 percent saw their prices decline by up to 4 percent during trading on Wednesday, though there was later-day recovery.The report added that investors based out of Mauritius had an exposure worth Rs. 3,78,460 crore to Indian equities at the end of March this year and accounted for about 20 percent of the overall FII exposure to Indian stocks.Some of the stocks with FII holding in excess of 33 percent include Just Dial, Strides, SKS Microfinance, ICICI Bank, Mahindra & Mahindra Financial Services, IndusInd Bank, IDFC and Info Edge, said ET.Tax implication between April 2017 and March 2019Mauritius-based entities will be subject to tax on long-term capital gains on investments made from April 1, 2017. For two financial years, they will be levied at half the rate currently applicable to Indian investors.The current rates for Indian investors are 15 percent on short-term capital gains (assets held for one year or less) of listed companies on payment of security transaction tax. Long-term capital gains are exempt from tax.On unlisted entities, the short-term capital gains are taxed at the Indian marginal tax rate while it is 20 percent on long-term capital gains (assets held for more than three years).The levy at half the current rate can be availed of by Mauritius-based entities only if they qualify the “main purpose test and bonafide business test.”Further, interest earned by Mauritian resident banks will be subject to withholding tax at the rate of 7.5 percent on debt claims or loans made after March 31, 2017. Income on claims in place prior to March 31, 2017 is explicitly exempted from tax, according to an update by BofA Merrill Lynch Global Research.Tax implication from April 1, 2019Long-term capital gains will be exempt while short-term capital gains will be subject to 15 percent tax. [1 lakh = 100,000 | 1 crore = 10 million | 100 crore = 1 billion]last_img read more

Khaleda complains of govt attempt to manipulate her trial

first_imgBNP chairperson Khaleda Zia.BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia on Thursday told the court that the prime minister and her party leaders are trying to influence the judge by making comments on her under-trial cases.“Honourable court, where should I go then? I want to keep my confidence in the court,” she said placing her arguments in self-defence for about an hour.The former prime minister appeared in the court seeking bail in two in Zia Orphanage Trust and Zia Charitable Trust graft cases after the court had issued warrant for her arrest when she was in London.In her contention, Khaleda Zia cited an example and said, “A judge acquitted Tarique Rahman of a graft case filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission. Later, the judge, along with his family, had to flee the country.”In the make-shift court in Bakshibazar, the BNP chairperson also pointed out that it is not court premises “where you are sitting and disposing of the cases.”She recalled that during the caretaker government led by Fakhruddin Ahmed, backed by  army chief Moeen U Ahmed, a special court was set up in the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban premises where trials of politicians and members of parliament were being conducted.Read More: Khaleda secures bail in two graft casesKhaleda mentioned that the current prime minister, Sheikh Hasina was accused of bribery in a case.

What You Can Learn About Creativity From This FutureReady Classroom

first_img It seems obvious once you think about it. But if STEAM (which adds art and design to the usual science, technology, engineering and math mix) is really going to take hold in the education system, classrooms themselves need an overhaul. The current setup, with desks facing a teacher and whiteboard, doesn’t allow the mind to roam or hands-on experimentation to take place.Those within the Arts and Humanities Department at Columbia University’s Teachers College are already thinking about this issue with a prototype learning environment known as ThingSpace, located deep in the basement of Macy Hall.It’s all part of a new approach for next-gen educators at the venerable Manhattan institution. A new crop of students have signed up for Advanced Certificate: Creative Technologies to learn how to preside over these new spaces, and they’ve all just arrived for the fall semester.PCMag went to the ThingSpace to meet Angela Allmond, a doctoral candidate at Teachers College specializing in art classroom design strategies, as she put up and painted the last shelves (Federated Blue HGSW1322, Sherwin Williams and a custom mix of what was left from last semester).”I’m actually writing my dissertation on studio spaces and how they meet the needs of students and teachers,” Allmond told PCMag. “My interest in this emerging discipline is also why I was hired to renovate this phased project as we re-imagine this whole venture.”The first thing that strikes you as you enter the ThingSpace is the lighting. It’s bright but there are no buzzing fluorescents overhead. “We switched out traditional strips for daylight sustainable energy bulbs,” confirmed Allmond.Though it previously served as a traditional sculpture studio, ThingSpace doesn’t look anything like a single purpose workshop. Remember those? Instead, everything is on display at ThingSpace. You can pick up Arduinos and fiddle with old electrical casings from vintage TVs. Maybe you paint or sculpt, but it’s all there, in a wide open airy space, carefully marked and on open shelves, from Makey Makeys to an assortment of steampunk and Maker Movement hand-craft tools.There’s a flexible work area for computer stations (loaded up with SketchUp for 3D modeling), a Poulan industrial size chain saw, DeWALT table saw, drill press, laser cutter and 3D printers; a CNC router is on its way. There are digital sewing machines for textile creation (cue the conductive thread possibilities) alongside very traditional tools (such as chisels) if students want them.”It’s all about creating a space that invites students to try new materials,” Allmond said. “Or that compels them to explore the range of possibility that exists across media choices, often tempting them to bridge the gap between ‘tried and true’ traditional materials and the many new and emerging possibilities brought about by the ever-changing and advancing digital technologies that permeate the 21st century.”As an educator in the classroom, I’ve often delighted in watching a student start an art class with no real idea of what to do, but eventually be drawn in by the ‘stuff’ of artmaking, from clay to pastels, found objects to 3D printing, and an vast array of compelling materials.”It’s not always easy to think out of the box when it comes to education spaces. As part of her PhD study, Allmond spent time at the Amesbury School in England as it embarked on a multi-million dollar building program.”I’d already started working on defining my research interests and shaping the proposal for my dissertation project, on how students flourish in well-designed creative spaces,” said Allmond. “And it was so useful to be at Amesbury. What I learned there is that if you don’t create these spaces with careful consideration of nuanced use patterns and organize it in a way that invites curiosity and exploration, you’ll get a fabulous building, but will still be cramming in all the same stuff into an area that’s not fit for purpose.”You have to grow into a space, especially a space you’re trying to change to become something else,” Allmond continued. “You have to understand the use of the space and how students are going to move around, generate desire to try new things and work on projects.”The ThingSpace is an imaginative way to inspire a whole new generation of educators and their students. Considering Teachers College is where Georgia O’Keeffe studied from 1914 to 1915, it’s great to know it is still forging individual minds and creative spirits within a future-ready learning environment. 4 min read Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global September 26, 2016 Register Now » Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

Jupiter Will Be So Close To Earth This Month Its Moons Can

first_imgClose This month would be a good time to spend some time looking at the night sky, with unique views ready to be unveiled. The most interesting, perhaps, is planet Jupiter coming so close to Earth that one can easily see its moons even just with the use of binoculars.Jupiter OppositionOn June 10, Jupiter will reach opposition, meaning it will be in a straight line with Earth and the sun, with the Earth in the middle of the two giants. It is a yearly occurrence that is the best time to see Jupiter because the planet will rise at dusk and will remain visible in the sky all night. Although this occurs at a specific date, the entire month around it is actually the best time to have a look at Jupiter and its four largest moons.It is also around the time when Jupiter is closest to the Earth, so it will be at its biggest and brightest this month. Although the solar system’s largest planet can be seen with the naked eye, using binoculars, one can also have a look at its four largest moons or perhaps even the clouds around the planet.

One of Jupiter’s first surprises to the world of science was in 1610, when Galileo Galilei discovered its moons, the first ones to be discovered beyond the Earth.The stripes and swirls on the planet are actually clouds of ammonia and water floating in Jupiter’s atmosphere of hydrogen and helium. Its iconic Great Red Spot is a massive storm that has been going on for hundreds of years, and is even bigger than the Earth.Other Sky Events In JuneIf seeing Jupiter gets one excited about sky watching, there are also other events that people can get excited for this month. On June 17 and 18, Mars and Mercury will appear very close together in the sky immediately after sunset.Also, from June 14 to 19, the moon will line up with Jupiter and Saturn in the sky.

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling – / 21 Top Stories 0 Comments   Share   Was is it worth it Daryl?As Darnell Dockett laid on the ground, I couldn’t help but think about that question.Carson Palmer immediately went to Dockett as he laid on the ground. Calais Campbell stood above his fallen defensive linemate hoping what he was seeing was a messed up dream. One by one, different players tapped Dockett before moving the 11-on-11 drill 15 yards away from Darnell’s torn ACL. One player who didn’t approach Dockett was Daryl Washington because he believed violating the league’s substance abuse policy was more worthwhile than being there for Dockett. Sure, you can argue Washington wasn’t thinking his Pro-Bowl defensive end that protects him, allowing him to run free, would tear his ACL in practice. I would argue that the sentence can stop with “Washington wasn’t thinking.” At the first chance the defense had during practice, they took a knee to pray for Dockett. Washington was not there. Only the defensive players that can be counted on attended the impromptu prayer session. The Cardinals need Washington, now more than ever, and he’s not there while serving his 16-game suspension.Docket was the definition of dependability. Washington is known for the exact opposite. Starting next year, Washington will have missed an average of almost five games a year in his NFL career. Dockett has averaged one missed game every five years of his NFL career. Steve Keim planned on a defense led by Todd Bowles with Patrick Peterson, Antonio Cromartie, Calais Campbell, Darnell Dockett and Daryl Washington. Five players that either are or could develop into NFL stars. They’re now down to three.In order for Washington to have been suspended for 16 games, he must have tested positive at least three times since he was never convicted of a drug-related crime. If Washington was playing well this preseason, the Dockett loss would have been difficult to swallow but not devastating. Instead, neither man is playing. One man because he never quit on his teammates and another man because he never wanted to quit.

Cabinet approves implementation of child protection strategy

first_imgThe cabinet on Wednesday gave the nod to a bill for implementing the national strategy for the protection of children from sexual exploitation and abuse.The bill provides for the establishment of a council and a committee tasked with carrying out the strategy.In July 2014 the House passed the passed the Prevention and Combating of Sexual Abuse, Sexual Exploitation of Children and Child Pornography Law, the provisions of which in essence harmonised Cypriot law with European Directive 2011/93 / EU and the Council of Europe Convention on Protection of Children against Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse, also known as the ‘Lanzarote Convention’.The Lanzarote Convention was formally ratified by the House on June 1, 2015.Now, the new legislation approved by the cabinet seeks to coordinate action among the relevant government services in handling cases of sexually abused minors.The bill also allocates funds to the national strategy’s other pillar – prevention – through public awareness programmes in schools and society at large.According to an often-cited 2014 study by the University of Cyprus, one in four children in Cyprus have suffered some form of sexual abuse, or are expected to fall victim to such abuse by age 18.You May LikeHeart Failure Treatment | Search AdsThe Early Signs Of Heart Failure.
