25 October 2007Violence, a decaying health system and unabated attacks on schools in Afghanistan are combining to hamper progress for the country’s young people, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) warned today. Violence, a decaying health system and unabated attacks on schools in Afghanistan are combining to hamper progress for the country’s young people, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) warned today.The agency’s “Child Alert Afghanistan” report, launched in Geneva and Kabul, is based on the findings of Martin Bell, UNICEF UK Ambassador for Humanitarian Emergencies, who made a a two-week trip to Afghanistan in July and August. “Despite a multitude of plans and proposals, projects and partners, and the support of many countries working to bring peace and progress to Afghanistan, I have witnessed a spike in insecurity that is causing more and more schools to close and more and more children to be killed,” said Mr. Bell. “Families, especially in the South, are caught in the middle of this crossfire, out of reach of humanitarian assistance. Simply put, it is make or break time for Afghanistan’s children.” As conflict engulfs large parts of Afghanistan, Child Alert underscores the need to pull together the security necessary to allow children to go to school. Forty-four school attacks occurred in the first six months of 2007. Girls’ schools and at times girls themselves are targeted, stalling or reversing progress in female education made since the fall of the Taliban regime, and causing attendance to drop significantly in secondary school. Health workers lack access to over 40 per cent of the country, and even those areas that can be reached are under constant threat, according to the report. It argues strongly for greater efforts to address the high maternal mortality rate in Afghanistan, where more than 60 women died daily in 2005 from pregnancy-related causes, while nearly 900 children under five died every day in 2006. “Being a child in Afghanistan means waking every morning unsure if your walk to school will come under gunfire,” Catherine Mbengue, UNICEF’s Country Representative, said at the report’s launch in Geneva. “It means perhaps growing up without a mother because she died in the one of the most dangerous countries in the world to give birth.” On the positive side, the report finds that the UNICEF-supported polio eradication campaign achieved progress; new cases drop from 31 in 2006 to 11 so far this year. More than 15,000 vaccinators have visited the whole country as part of the National Immunization Days organized by UNICEF, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Ministry of Public Health to reach 7.3 million children. UNICEF working to help the children of Afghanistan through various initiatives, but the agency’s $16.7 million appeal has come up 43 per cent short of its target. read more


The situation in much of Kenya remains “calm but tense,” according to United Nations officials on the ground who are working with their humanitarian partners to aid those affected by the violence that erupted following last week’s disputed polls. The UN estimates that some 250,000 Kenyans have been displaced, and 350 reportedly killed, by the violence which erupted after President Mwai Kibaki was declared the winner in the recent election. In the wake of the crisis that followed, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called on both President Kibaki and opposition leader Raila Odinga to resolve their issues through dialogue. The UN Country Team in Kenya is working with the Kenya Red Cross Society and a number of national and international non-governmental organizations, as well as faith-based groups, to provide immediate humanitarian assistance. The situation in the country is “calm but tense,” according to UN security officials, who added that much of Nairobi appears to be returning to “near normalcy.” However, many of the internally displaced persons (IDPs) still fear for their safety and remain where they have found refugee, UN Resident Coordinator Elizabeth Lwanga told reporters in Nairobi today. The UN’s focus right now is to “address the special needs of Kenyans who are displaced and who are in distress because of the crisis,” she added.The UN World Food Programme (WFP) is providing food through the Kenya Red Cross for 100,000 people displaced in the Rift Valley. “However, there is a need for a systematic coordination of escorts of convoys with humanitarian supplies,” Ms. Lwanga said. While Kenyan security forces have been escorting food convoys between depots and allowing the Kenya Red Cross to distribute it from there to those in need, she stressed that “the sustainability of this mode of operation is not guaranteed.”Meanwhile, WFP has been waiting at Mombasa, a major port for several countries in the region, with 30,000 metric tonnes of food, enough for 1.5 million people, for eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Somalia and Southern Sudan. Some trucks left Mombasa but then were stranded due to insecurity on main roads and checkpoints set up by vigilantes in western Kenya. “At the moment we have not had a problem in food distribution but if this situation continues then food will not get delivered on time,” said WFP’s Peter Smerdon. The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) estimates that about 5,000 Kenyans have fled to Uganda, and an unconfirmed number have also left for Tanzania. Some of those that crossed into Uganda are living in schools or churches, while others have been taken in by relatives.The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) reports that many hospitals are in desperate need of medical supplies to treat trauma and injuries. “Supplies and staff are needed to treat victims of shooting, burning, beating, slashing and trampling,” according to UNICEF’s Sara Cameron. The agency is working to reduce malnutrition among the displaced in the worst-affected areas and setting up so-called “safe spaces” for displaced mothers and children. Furthermore, it is providing water and sanitation, as well as family kits, to up to 100,000 people. 5 January 2008The situation in much of Kenya remains “calm but tense,” according to United Nations officials on the ground who are working with their humanitarian partners to aid those affected by the violence that erupted following last week’s disputed polls. read more


“Let them lay down their weapons, if only temporarily, so that humanity can lay claim to gold even before the Games begin,” he said in a message ahead of the Games. Such a truce, while limited in duration, can provide a pause in which to reconsider the heavy cost of war, as well as an opening to initiate a dialogue and a window to provide relief for suffering populations, he said.“It can demonstrate to the world that peace is possible in even the most seemingly intractable situations if we truly work towards it,” he added.In 1992, the International Olympic Committee renewed the ancient Greek tradition of the ekecheiria, or ‘Olympic Truce,’ by calling on all nations to observe the Truce.In a resolution adopted last October, the 192-member General Assembly urged countries to observe the Truce during the forthcoming XXIX Olympiad and the Paralympic Games to be held in Beijing, from 8 to 24 August and from 6 to 17 September, respectively, based on the slogan “One World, One Dream.”In his solemn appeal in connection with the observance of the Truce, the President of the Assembly Srgjan Kerim noted that “the Games will bring together athletes from all parts of the world in the greatest of international sports events as a means to promote peace, mutual understanding and goodwill among nations and peoples — goals that are also part of the founding values of the United Nations.”It was as an expression of these common objectives that in 1998 the InternationalOlympic Committee decided to fly the UN flag at all Olympic competition sites.The world body and the Committee have subsequently strengthened their mutual cooperation and support through joint efforts in fields such as poverty alleviation, human and economic development, humanitarian assistance, education, health promotion and HIV/AIDS prevention, gender equality and environmental protection. 28 July 2008Less than two weeks before the 2008 Summer Olympics begin in Beijing, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today joined the General Assembly in calling on all those who are at war to observe the traditional two-week Olympic Truce. read more


Ohio State junior forward Freddy Gerard (15) evades a defender in the first period of the game against Wisconsin on Feb. 23 in the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Managing Editor for DesignNo. 1 Ohio State (2-0) swept its season opener at Arizona State (2-2) to get its season off to a hot start. Ohio State is beginning its season after being ranked No. 1 in the nation for the first time in team history in both the USCHO and USA Today Men’s Hockey polls.The Buckeyes won their first game on Friday by a score of 3-2 and shut out the Sun Devils on Saturday 3-0.Game 1The Buckeyes got off to a quick start Friday as senior forward Freddy Gerard opened up the scoring off an assist from junior forward Carson Meyer just six minutes into the game.After a penalty by senior forward Dakota Joshua as the first period winded down, sophomore forward Johnny Walker scored the Sun Devils’ first goal on the power play less than a minute into the second period to tie the game up.The power play was an important factor for both teams, with three of the five goals scored coming with a man advantage. Ohio State was two for five while Arizona State only converted on one of its four opportunities.The Buckeyes quickly followed up Arizona State’s first goal with a power play of their own, allowing Joshua to score his first goal with assists by senior forward Mason Jobst and redshirt junior defenseman Wyatt Ege.Only a couple minutes later, Meyer scored his first goal in the Scarlet and Gray off assists from Jobst and junior forward Tanner Laczynski to make the score 3-1. Walker scored on the power play for Arizona State with only seconds to go in the second period to make it 3-2, but senior goaltender Sean Romeo saved all 12 shots sent his way in the third period to secure the win.Romeo saved 24 shots and allowed two goals in the victory.Game 2Following the Buckeyes 3-2 win on Friday, it took a bit longer for both teams to get into their rhythms on Saturday.The first goal of the game came with just over a minute left in the second period by junior forward Ronnie Hein, assisted by Laczynski and junior defenseman Matt Miller. Though two of Ohio State’s three goals on Friday came via the power play, the Buckeyes did most of their scoring Saturday with Arizona State at full strength. Ohio State wasn’t able to capitalize on its six power play opportunities during the matchup. Arizona State similarly struggled, failing to convert on each of its six power play attempts. After trading power plays for most of the game, the Sun Devils eventually got called for tripping Jobst on a breakaway which resulted in a penalty shot, which Jobst buried, giving Ohio State the 2-0 lead. Tripping was just one of the penalties called in this physical game, which resulted in 15 penalties and 30 minutes of time in the penalty box.With only 20 seconds to play, assists from redshirt junior forward Miguel Fidler and senior forward John Wiitala led to Hein’s second goal of the game in an empty net to cap the game off 3-0.Sophomore goaltender Tommy Nappier saved all 27 shots sent his way in his second career shutout.Overall, the Buckeyes out shot Arizona State 70-53 in the series and killed nine of the ten penalties they faced. Ohio State only converted on two of its 11 power play opportunities. The Buckeyes will come back to Columbus for their home opener against Massachusetts at the Schottenstein Center on Friday at 7:05 p.m. and Saturday at 5:05 p.m. read more


first_imgThe battle between entertainment businesses and Internetpirates has been a long one. We’ve heard countless stories of companies going after someone who illegally downloaded a movie and then were made to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for it. Now, Internet service providers such as AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, Cablevision, and Time Warner Cable are stepping in to protect their customers’s privacy while weeding out piracy by implementing a new “six strike” policy.The major ISPs have signed a voluntary agreement with the movie and music businesses to work on the issue of copyright infringement. The new policy will protect subscriber privacy and will ensure that the ISPs won’t be filtering or monitoring any of their own networks for infringement. They’re leaving that up to groups like the Copyright Group or the RIAA to do the lurking among peer-to-peer file sharing networks. The plan will work very similar to hows it does now where the copyright holder will send a message to the ISP if they see your IP address dipping its toes into some illegal downloading.The ISP will then pass along the message to the accused user. It won’t provide any information to the copyright holder, like the name or address of the alleged users, without a court order. The new plan aims more to educate than to punish. ISPs don’t want to lose a customer altogether – that’s good money being lost – so a new six-strike alert system has been put into place.The series of “copyright alert” messages warn users in various ways that their alleged activity has been discovered. The first alert will be sent by the ISP in an email and will inform the user that their account may have been used for content theft. Oh, and also that it’s illegal. The message will inform the user that consequences could result. Aiming to educate, it will direct the user to resources that will help them check their computer’s security and the security of their WiFi network. It will also provide resources to places where they can find legal music, movies, and TV shows. The second alert, if the activity continues, will be similar to the first.The third alert is where things get a little more interesting. This alert will feature something like a click-through pop-up notification, or a landing page that will block you from moving on unless you verify you’ve read the page. This is to ensure that the user has seen the message. Some of us get hundreds of emails a day, and the first two messages could easily go unseen. The fourth alert is similar to the previous one.Things get a little more punitive at the fifth alert. The ISP may take one of a couple of measures referred to as “Mitigation Measures.” These may include a noticeable reduction in the speed of your Internet connection, another landing page that won’t go away until the subscriber contacts the ISP, or educational information about copyright infringement that you’ll have to read and respond to. The sixth alert will be similar to the fifth.This whole strategy seems like a pretty reasonable one, and if you’re still getting caught after six times, it’s more than fair for copyright holders to come after you with legal action at that point, unless they have got it completely wrong, that is. However, if you do reach the fifth and sixth alert, it’s still possible to appeal the “mitigation measure.”  There’s a $35 filing fee to appeal, but for people who have been wrongly accused, like the guy who was accused of downloading child pornography, this process may come in handy.What do you think? Is this a fair system to be put into place by the ISPs?via Ars Technicalast_img read more

first_imgThe number of suicides recorded in Greece in the first eight months of this year was marginally down from the same period last year, according to two nongovernmental organisations which provide support to depressed and homeless citizens.A total of 209 people (173 men and 36 women) committed suicide from January through August, according to data made public by representatives of the Suicide Prevention Network and Klimaka.This represents a drop of around 10 per cent compared to the 229 people (193 men and 36 women) who killed themselves in the same period of 2013.According to Aris Violatzis, a counsellor with Klimaka, the dip suggests that the increase in suicides that has been widely attributed to the country’s economic crisis has started to reverse. “The phenomenon has peaked and is probably dropping,” he said.

first_imgLes applications font de l’ombre aux sites InternetL’engouement pour les applications mobiles nuit sérieusement au trafic des sites Internet. C’est ce que révèle une étude du cabinet français AT Internet, qui note un essoufflement de la fréquentation des sites web tandis que les applis connaissent un véritable essor.Tandis que les applications sont de plus en plus plébiscitées par les internautes français, les sites web ont vu leur trafic sensiblement chuter. Le cabinet AT Internet vient de publier une étude sur ce phénomène, observé depuis l’été dernier.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?La fréquentation moyenne des sites a commencé à chuter en septembre, affirme cette enquête. Et la tendance se serait accentuée depuis le début de l’année 2012, au moment où les applis voient leur trafic exploser. Le mois dernier, la fréquentation des sites web accusait une baisse de 5,5% par rapport à mars 2011. Les applications mobiles, elles, ont pendant cette même période, enregistré une augmentation fulgurante de 57,5%.AT Internet attribue cette tendance à l’évolution des comportements d’utilisation du web avec l’explosion des ventes de smartphones et de tablettes, mais aussi le développement des réseaux sociaux, qui poussent les internautes à se connecter en permanence.

first_imgVancouver Public Schools agreed last month to a $325,000 settlement with a teenager struck by a district bus in 2014, a district spokeswoman said Monday.Kelcie Huntley was crossing the street at East McLoughlin and Grand boulevards on Oct. 20, 2014, when she was hit by a school bus on her way to Hudson’s Bay High School. She suffered a broken nose and cheek, as well as a fractured pelvis, and had back surgery for her injuries, according to court records.In March 2017, she and her mother, Alyxandria Bates sued the district. They accused the bus driver, Virginia Sharpe, of negligence. Sharpe, who law enforcement said at the time had an “excellent” driving record, was put on administrative leave after the incident.Sharpe still works for Vancouver Public Schools, district spokeswoman Pat Nuzzo said by email.Huntley and Bates asked the district to pay Huntley’s medical bills, medication, gas for driving to medical appointments and for “mental anguish and emotional distress.” The suit also asked the district to pay for “negligent infliction of emotional distress” for Bates.Huntley’s attorneys did not return a request for comment for this story. The district held a mediation session on June 12 and came to the settlement agreement, Nuzzo said.The district said the settlement, which will be paid by insurance company Clear Risk Solutions, is not an “admission of liability or fault.”last_img read more

first_img Recommended for you Providenciales, 30 Dec 2014 – A glamorous looking Providenciales International Airport was officially opened last night; the TCIAA keeping its promise to be complete the work and handover the facility by the end of 2014. Only a few days left in the year, but a shiny open air terminal with the trimmings was unveiled with remarks coming from tourism, investment, business and aviation leaders. It was a red carpet show with remarks delivered by the Actg Governor Anya Williams and ribbon cutting including Her Excellency Williams with the Premier, Hon Dr Rufus Ewing and the Finance Minister, Hon Washington Misick. In the lead up to the opening of the airport, there have been security officer training seminars, a gifting of new, larger porter trolleys by the VIP Flyers Club, international recognition as the VIP area was nominated for a World Travel Awards prize, announcement of state of the art advertising opportunities through Clear Channel which has been contracted for five years and tours, including a group from the Raymond Gardiner High School of North Caicos. While the openness and size of the terminal have been the subject of some criticism, the curvy roof does lend an appealing welcome. Airport Officials says this new roof which has been installed at both ends of the terminal is eco-friendly. “The stylishly curved beams add a modern take to the renovated terminal roof and add height and depth to the new design,” explains the Authority in a press release. Old metal and new metal were connected in this multi-million dollar project which was said to be within budget. There was a rush to completion, landscaping and the rest rooms were among the final touches; the restrooms are a now source of pride for the Airports Authority: “…bathrooms have been redesigned with contemporary style and top of the line finishes deserving of our world class clientele.” Other first time features include universal kiosks and a flight information display screen; it reports on the arrivals and the departures.

After Earth,filmed partially in Costa Rica and starring Jaden and Will Smith, takes place 1000 years after a cataclysmic event has forced humanity to escape from Earth to a new home, Nova Prime. After an asteroid storm damages their craft, Cypher (Will) and Kitai (Jaden) find themselves crash-landed on planet Earth, where everything has evolved to kill humans and an unstoppable alien creature is on the loose. Cypher is critically injured and it is up to Kitai to save them by trekking across 100 kilometers of hostile terrain to retrieve the rescue a beacon from a fallen section of the ship.Having failed to pass the test to become a ranger, Kitai now has the chance to prove himself to his father, the Legendary General Cypher Raige.After Earth opens in U.S. theatres May 31 and in Costa Rica theatres in June. The famous father-and-son duo started filming in February of 2012 around Arenal Volcano.“Costa Rica is such a great place … it’s very cool, I really like it out here.” Jaden Smith said in a behind the scenes interview by Cambio. He also expressed concern over filming next to a volcano, among live snakes and wild pigs, and about finding 4-inch cockroaches in his bed.The film company employed wildlife experts and four snake wranglers on the team to sweep the area before the shoot, ensuring it was “safe” for the crew.Will Smith, who wrote the starring role into the film specifically for his son, said he enjoyed Costa Rica and plans to choose more films in the future based location.  “Costa Rica just gives the film a very eerie size and scope,” he said.Official preview: http://www.sonypictures.com/previews/movies/afterearth/clips/5883/ Facebook Commentslast_img read more


first_img Share National Association of Home Builders National Association of Realtors New Home Sales Pending Home Sales Index 2019-06-27 Mike Albanese May Yields Mixed Results for Housing Market June 27, 2019 364 Views center_img in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News, Origination New home sales fell 7.8% in May to an adjusted rate of 626,000, but are 4% higher than they were in May 2018, according to data by the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the U.S. Census Bureau. “The report shows growth in sales in the $200,000-300,000 price range, which indicates middle-class demand for housing is being supported by low rates and solid employment,” said Greg Ugalde, chairman of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and a home builder and developer from Torrington, Connecticut. Robert Dietz, Chief Economist at the NAHB, said the May numbers were “a bit surprising” given lower mortgages in recent months. “Based on these conditions, we expect June new home sales figures will show a rebound,” Dietz said. The report, published by the NHAB, stated the inventory of new homes for sale in May was 333,000, which is a 6.4 months’ supply. The average price for those homes was $308,200, and the home sold for an average of $316,700. New home sales were 7.5% higher in the south and 3.4% higher in the west. Both the northeast and the midwest saw declines, 13.3% and 3.2%, respectively. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) added positive news on the housing market, revealing that pending home sales increased 1.1% in May, and three of four regions saw contract activity grow. Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist at the NAR, attributed growth in pending sales to historically low mortgage rates. “Rates of 4% and, in some cases even lower, create extremely attractive conditions for consumers. Buyers, for good reason, are anxious to purchase and lock in at these rates,” Yun said. Realtor.com’s Chief Economist Danielle Hale mortgage rates have also helped boost affordability. “Looking forward, as long as the June drop in consumer confidence doesn’t spook buyers we could see home sales pick-up in the months ahead prompted by low mortgage rates,” Hale said.last_img read more
