UN experts concerned over governmentimposed limits on freedom of expression

“Over the past several weeks, men and women in many countries, including Belarus, Egypt and Tunisia, have expressed grievances related to, among others, lack of employment opportunities and infringements on the right to an adequate standard of living,” the independent experts said in a joint statement.The experts voicing alarm are the Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, Christoph Heyns; the Chair-Rapporteur of the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention, El Hadji Malick Sow; and the Special Rapporteur on the right to freedom of opinion and expression, Frank La Rue. Independent experts, or special rapporteurs, are appointed by the Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a country situation or a specific human rights theme. The positions are honorary and the experts are not United Nations staff and are not paid for their work.“They [people] have also denounced the denial of their right to participate meaningfully in decision-making, underscoring the indivisibility of all human rights – civil, cultural, economic, political and social,” the experts said. They also voiced concern over the ill-treatment and arbitrary arrests of protesters, journalists, human rights defenders and lawyers, and deplored the disruption of communication networks and interference with the transmission of news.“As the recent turmoil has demonstrated, ignoring the root causes of such protests is unsustainable, and concerted, effective and prompt action must be taken domestically and internationally to provide an avenue for peaceful redress of human rights grievances, including the enjoyment of economic, social and cultural rights,” the experts said, expressing their readiness to help countries address those issues.“We deeply deplore the tragic loss of lives and injuries as a result, in some cases, of the excessive use of force against peaceful demonstrators. We urge governments to abide by international standards, including those on the use of force and fire arms,” the trio said.In addition, they called for “prompt and impartial investigations” into the reported deaths and injuries and the bringing to justice of those responsible for the violations. 3 February 2011A group of United Nations independent human rights experts today voiced alarm at limits imposed by governments on the right to freedom of expression and information, saying recent mass protests in several countries were the result of frustrations by people who felt ignored or neglected. read more

Annan urges city leaders to work with global partners to help eradicate

United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan today urged a gathering of mayors from around the globe to press ahead with their valuable work – building bridges of international cooperation at the community level – to help revitalize the long-term vision of a world free of nuclear weapons.Revitalizing that vision “is the only way to guarantee that these terrible weapons will never be used again,” Mr. Annan said in remarks to a conference of mayors at UN Headquarters in New York. The visit by the “Mayors for Peace,” who are in town to promote their vision of a global ban on nuclear weapons by 2020, coincides with the opening of the 2005 Review Conference of State Parties to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).The group is composed of cities around the world – led by city leaders from Hiroshima and Nagasaki – who have formally united against nuclear weapons. The non-governmental organization (NGO) is now supported by 554 cities in 107 countries and regions, endorsing the 1982 Programme to Promote Solidarity of Cities toward the Total Abolition of Nuclear Weapons.“Your work is very important to us here at the United Nations,” Mr. Annan said. “This UN is a meeting place of national governments, but it also needs the ideas and enthusiasm of local communities around the world.”Welcoming a number of “Hibakusa” – living witnesses to the horrors wrought by the atomic bombs unleashed on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 – the Secretary-General urged the mayors to press ahead with their work, even in the face of what might seem to be insurmountable obstacles.If the world’s NPT obligations – ensuring nuclear disarmament, non-proliferation and peaceful uses of nuclear energy – were to be revitalized, action would be required on all fronts. “Your efforts, of course, are a part of something bigger – the struggle for a freer, fairer and safer world,” Mr. Annan said.At a press conference earlier Tuesday, Hiroshima Mayor Tadatoshi Akiba, President of Mayors for Peace, said the interim goal of the so-called “2020 Vision Campaign” was to have a universal nuclear weapons convention prepared by 2010, for consideration by the next NPT review meeting. He said he hoped the discussions over the next few days would be the beginning of a constructive exchange between the custodians of the NPT and the mayors, citizens and NGOs of the world.Mayor Kazunaga Itoh of Nagasaki said that in the 60 years since the horrific attacks on his home city and Hiroshima, many nuclear weapons had no doubt been produced but not one had been used. That was perhaps because the countries that have or those that would like to have such weapons realized what a devastating thing they could be. He added, however, that six decades after the event, one could still identify cases of post-traumatic stress disorder. Calling for the eradication of all nuclear weapons, he said that the effects of the bombs were such that even today, the long-term after-effects were still being felt. read more

UN partners seek 25 million to stabilize Gazas worsening humanitarian conditions

“The situation in Gaza has become increasingly precarious over recent months. No one is untouched by the energy crisis,” said Robert Piper, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator for the occupied Palestinian territory, in a press release. “The coping capacities of Gaza’s families to deal with these types of shocks are seriously depleted as the cumulative impact of 10 years of isolation, division and insecurity take their toll,” he added. In a document presented today to diplomats of donor countries in Jerusalem, the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the World Food Programme (WFP) and other entities identified priority, life-saving interventions in the health, water, sanitation and hygiene, and food security sectors.Included in the package are chemicals for water treatment and spare parts for generators that have increasingly become the primary energy source instead of the back-up for key facilities. The package also targets shortages in medical supplies and aims to provide assistance to an estimated 100,000 food-insecure families and vulnerable farmers whose livelihoods are under threat. Responding to the heightened risk of diarrhoeal disease outbreaks, 8,500 hygiene kits will also be distributed for the most vulnerable households, funds permitting.Despite the arrival of some fuel purchased in the Egyptian market over recent days, Gaza’s electricity crisis is far from over, according to the press release. Electricity supply over recent days has ranged from four to six hours per day. Fuel is also needed for generators for water treatment plants, sewerage pumps and other key facilities. read more

Ohio State defense ready for upsetminded Bison

OSU coach Thad Matta looks on during a game against Bryant Dec. 11 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 86-48. Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorOhio State coach Thad Matta preaches team defense to his players every single day, a doctrine of success that has helped him lead the Buckeyes to 259 victories, a pair of Final Fours and four straight trips to the Sweet Sixteen.OSU’s defensive prowess has shown through even more this season, as the Buckeyes rank second in the country in scoring defense at 53.8 points per game, just a touch behind Clemson (53.6).“Coach Matta talks about it a lot, about every game, that we’re the best defense in the country,” junior guard Shannon Scott said Friday. “We really want to have that in our heads that nobody should be able to score on us. We want to make sure we’re the aggressor while we’re on offense and defense.”The Buckeyes (9-0, 0-0) have recorded 70 steals so far this season, with Scott and senior guard Aaron Craft swiping 21 and 23, respectively. The team also has 48 blocks through nine games, half of which are from junior center Amir Williams. Consistency on defense all over the floor is leading to the success, Scott said.“I feel like we’re all really connected right now,” Scott said.The Buckeyes are set to take on the North Dakota State Bison (7-3, 0-0) Saturday, who are fresh off of a 73-69 win at Notre Dame.“I think that was the best thing for us honestly,” Scott said, referring to the Bison’s win against the Irish. “We know they’re coming in as a great team, they just beat a great Notre Dame team. The fact that they’re coming in the way they are really puts us … backs us up on our toes where we can’t just go into the game expecting them to hand us the game because we’re Ohio State and they’re North Dakota State.”Bison senior forward Marshall Bjorklund scored 26 points against the Irish, and is one of four players who averages double figures in scoring.“(Bjorklund) shoots a very high percentage, so we have to try to get him outside the box, outside his comfort zone and not (let) him get the looks he’s been getting,” junior center Trey McDonald said Friday. “And also rely on some of the help from the guards with our pressure defense on the ball.”Matta said Bjorklund is “right there” in the discussion of best post player his team has faced all season, but has been pleased with what McDonald and Williams have done so far on defense, particularly in the team’s win against Bryant.“I’ve been very pleased, and I thought both guys Wednesday night had great awareness, great energy,” Matta said. “They made some plays out of their area, be it helping along the baseline or Amir blocking shots … That’s what we want those guys to do is to really plug the middle for us down there.”McDonald said he and Williams see playing against Bjorklund as an opportunity.“Although it is a team, it is team defense, we look at it as a personal challenge,” McDonald said. “Someone shooting that high of a field goal percentage and averaging that many points, we definitely look to Amir to try and shut them down and play our defensive game as we have been doing.”Shutting down Bjorklund and the rest of the Bison will be a challenge for the Buckeye defense, and even though there is always room to improve, Matta likes where they’re at currently.“I think that we’ve got some guys that are underrated defenders. I love what guys are bringing to the table,” Matta said. “Are we perfect? No, we’re not perfect. But we have guys dialed in and connected and tuned into scouting.”Tipoff between the Buckeyes and Bison is set for 8:15 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center. read more

Online portal improves access to geoscience data from Africa

first_imgThe Botswana Geoscience Institute (BGI) is launching a Geoscience Portal that provides free access to multi-disciplinary datasets from Ngamiland, a district in the country’s northwest, for a period of one year. Building on the success of online geoscience initiatives in North America, Europe and Australia, the portal is intended to help Botswana attract new investment in resource exploration, improve transparency and stimulate collaboration between government, industry and the public to advance understanding of the economic and social needs of the North-West district.“In addition to encouraging investment, improved discovery and interpretation of the Ngamiland datasets can assist us in furthering our understanding of other issues, such as the causes of earthquakes in the region, evolution and geodynamics of the delta system, and contribution in the development of seismic hazard maps and zonation,” said Motsamai Tarzan Kwadiba, Chief Geophysicist with the Botswana Geoscience Institute.Partnering with the BGI and industry stakeholders, Geosoft will make geoscientific and supporting data and information from Ngamiland freely accessible through a web portal, and will support the portal for the duration of the pilot project.The Botswana Geoscience Portal was presented during the Indaba African mining conference in Cape Town, and will launch in mid-February, 2016.last_img read more

Microsoft porte plainte contre Motorola Mobility

first_imgMicrosoft porte plainte contre Motorola MobilityLa firme américaine a demandé à la Commission européenne l’ouverture d’une enquête sur la filiale de Google, accusée d’utiliser abusivement de ses brevets.Microsoft ne supporte pas le fait que Motorola Mobility, filiale de Google, veuille le forcer à retirer des produits sous le prétexte de brevets lui appartenant. Dave Heiner, le vice-directeur juridique de Microsoft, a ainsi dressé une liste de griefs envers cette attitude. “Motorola est en passe d’utiliser des brevets sur des normes essentielles pour tuer la vidéo sur le web et Google, son nouveau propriétaire, ne semble pas vouloir changer d’attitude”, a-t-il expliqué dans des propos relayés par Clubic. Ainsi la vente “les PC sous Windows, notre console de jeux Xbox et d’autres produits” sont sous le coup d’une interdiction de vente. Ce sont les brevets liés à la lecture vidéo (H.264) et à la capacité de se connecter sans fil via le WiFi (802.11) qui sont visés par Microsoft, Motorola Mobility ayant porté plainte aux Etats-Unis et en Europe pour leur violation. Mais la firme de Redmond estime que ceux-ci sont désormais utilisés de manière courante et qu’ils doivent donc être utilisables par l’ensemble des acteurs du marché. Microsoft a ainsi porté plainte auprès de la cellule de la Commission européenne chargée de la concurrence pour trancher ce litige.Le 24 février 2012 à 12:00 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Washington tribes urge that Obama stop reroute Dakota Access Pipeline

first_imgTwenty-eight tribal leaders in Washington state have written President Obama insisting he stop and reroute the Dakota Access Pipeline after a night of violence in North Dakota in which police used fire hoses, rubber bullets and tear gas against pipeline protesters.Declaring their solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, the tribal chairs wrote, “We support their call to deny the easement of the Dakota Access Pipeline and to reroute the pipeline away from tribal lands, waters and sacred places.”Tribal leaders also said they were outraged at the tactics used by police against demonstrators, especially fire hoses used to soak demonstrators in subfreezing weather.“Industry and their goons and their so-called peacekeepers are taking it to the next level,” said Brian Cladoosby, chairman of the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community. “I have seen in the last two days some very serious, almost crimes against humanity against citizens. They are going a step too far in enforcing the law.”In a report issued Monday, medical personnel at Standing Rock said 300 people were injured during the violence, including 26 people with more severe injuries taken to three area hospitals. The injuries included blunt-force trauma, eye injuries, internal bleeding and lacerations from rubber bullets and concussion grenades; hypothermia; loss of consciousness; grand mal seizures, and fractures, according to the medics.last_img read more

Senators Drop Protest over Army Cuts

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The last of several senators that had placed a hold on a senior Pentagon nominee to protest cuts at Army posts in their states last week allowed the individual to receive a confirmation vote on the chamber floor.Alaska Sen. Dan Sullivan (R) had placed a hold on the nomination of Stephen Hedger to be DOD’s assistant secretary for legislative affairs over the cuts planned for Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson (2,631 soldiers) and Fort Wainwright (73 soldiers), part of the restructuring plan the Army announced in July to shrink its active-duty end strength from 490,000 to 450,000 soldiers.Sullivan received a briefing on the cuts from the Army and met with Hedger, reported Politico. “While this did not convince him that the Army’s decision is strategically sound, providing this information was a good first step towards providing some transparency in the Army’s decision-making process,” a spokesman for the senator said.With Sullivan’s hold lifted, the Senate confirmed Hedger by voice vote on Thursday. His nomination was not affected by an ongoing effort by John McCain (R-Ariz.) to block civilian nominations from advancing past the Senate Armed Services Committee because it was privileged under Senate rules, which allowed it to bypass the committee.Several other senators previously had placed a hold on Hedger’s nomination, including John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.). Cornyn had criticized the personnel reductions slated for Forts Hood (3,350 soldiers) and Bliss (1,219 soldiers); Isakson objected to the loss of 3,400 soldiers at Fort Benning and 947 at Fort Stewart.————–Image Sourcelast_img read more

Department set to launch statewide drive to check fitness of public transport

first_imgKolkata: Following the direction of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, the state Transport department is going to start a state-wide drive to check the fitness of public transport vehicles.According to a senior official of the state Transport department, checking of goods vehicles is carried out round-the-year.”Now, we are going to initiate a process to carry out periodical fitness checking of public transport vehicles,” the official said, adding that initially emphasis will be given on checking fitness of buses and mini-buses that ply on different routes. It has been stated that there are two reasons behind starting fitness check of public transport vehicles. First of all, it will help in reducing the number of road accidents and will also ensure that commuters get better service, particularly as the bus fares have recently gone up. It may be mentioned that the Chief Minister has called for necessary steps to ensure periodical fitness checking of vehicles to avoid accidents. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeSince stress will be initially given on checking the fitness of buses, the official said that they will be checking whether a passenger is facing any problem while travelling in the vehicles. Citing some examples, the official added that they will be checking the condition of tyres being used in the public transport vehicles.It may be mentioned that use of good quality tyres in buses is mandatory to check accidents. According to experts, the chances of skidding goes up when sudden brake is applied if the condition of tyre is poor or if the vehicle is fitted with rethreaded tyres. Mainly in monsoon, many accidents take place due to the use of rethreaded tyres, as vehicles do not stop despite applying brakes.

Necessary steps will be taken if they find that the vehicles are not maintained properly,” the official said, adding that their endeavour is to ensure better amenities for passengers.The bus owners, in whose vehicles any fault is found, will be directed to repair the same, before plying them again.This comes at the time when the state government has taken up the state-wide Safe Drive Save Life campaign to bring down the rate of accidents.last_img read more

How to buy the right yoga mat

first_imgJust like buying the right pair of running shoes is important to avoid injuries, its equally important to identify the right mat to suit your workout style. Experts share some points to look out for before choosing a mat.Identify a mat that suits your body size, ensure you check for length and width. A mat too thick could make you unstable, making it difficult to hold a pose, while a mat too thin can be an issue if you have a high concern for knees or elbow joint pain. Thicker mats tend to be heavier and can affect portability. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThickness is important because the yoga mat has a lot to do with the comfort. If it is too thin then your knees get banged to the ground and it will hurt your knees but also if it is too thick then it is very hard to find that grounding from the ground level.The one advantage that thin mats have over thicker mats is that they are extremely portable especially if you are travelling. While buying a Yoga Mat make sure you have enough space to store it. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsivePVC mats generally provide the best stickiness, with least amount of slippage. Check for the texture of the mat which will determine your grip. Look out for a mat with raised, tactile pattern to give boost your confidence during a difficult workout. These surfaces also prevent your mat from skidding on the floor.Mats that absorb moisture allowing sweat to seep in deteriorate due to bacterial activity and start flaking faster. This also affects overall hygiene along with malodor. Therefore, look for a closed-cell construction mat which is slightly slippery at first, but is easier to maintain over time. The grip also improves the more you use it. It is also important to pay attention to the texture because like the stickiness the texture also allows you to slide and increase or decrease your range of motion. It sort of provides barriers to sliding and is a very big factor of comfort and protection.The last thing to consider is the price range. PVC mats which are widely used are much cheaper. However, if you go for mats which have different designs or patterns or the organic ones, then they are priced high. But you also have to consider the lifespan of the mat.last_img read more

Nicaragua begins repairs on canals in disputed border area

first_imgMANAGUA – Following orders issued last week by the International Court of Justice (ICJ), Nicaragua commenced repairing two canals on the disputed border territory of Isla Calero in the mouth of the San Juan River, in northeast Costa Rica.“We currently are filling the 150 meters canals, which I mostly cleaned of water lilies and other aquatic plants,” former guerrilla leader Edén “Comandante Cero” Pastora, in charge of dredging project, told local Channel 15.“Repair works will take three or four days … There are some 50 men in the area with shovels, moving sand and covering the canals,” Pastora added. President Daniel Ortega’s administration opened the canals using dredges to gain access to the Caribbean from the San Juan.Nicaragua and Costa Rica both claim ownership of the 1.16 square miles (three square kilometers) of border territory. The area is a protected wetland under the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands.The conflict originated in October 2010 when Costa Rica reported that Nicaragua had invaded its territory while Ortega’s administration officials rejected the claims, arguing the land belongs to Nicaragua.In December of that year, Costa Rica filed an lawsuit before the ICJ and in March 2011 the court issued injunctions ordering both countries to clear the disputed area from both military and civilian personnel.However, San José has been claiming that Nicaragua does not respect these provisions. Last September, Costa Rica asked the ICJ to extend precautionary measures, presenting evidence that Nicaragua was dredging two canals in the area and had built two artificial canals connecting the San Juan River and the Caribbean Sea.Last Nov. 22, ICJ President Peter Tomka ordered Nicaragua to “abstain from any type of dredging or other activities in the disputed territory, and particularly, from any type of work on the two canals.”The ICJ ruling also gave the Nicaraguan government two weeks to repair the canals and to remove all equipment and personal from the area. The two weeks is up Dec. 5. Facebook Comments No related posts.last_img read more

London council reverses plan to sell Henry Moore sculpture

first_imgHis statement followed a High Court judge’s ruling Wednesday that the Tower Hamlets borough owns Moore’s “Draped Seated Woman,” nicknamed Old Flo. It stood for years outside a public housing project in the east London borough, one of Britain’s poorest areas.After the cash-strapped local council announced plans to sell Old Flo in 2012, another London borough claimed it was the rightful owner and took the case to court.In the meantime, Biggs’ predecessor, Lutfur Rahman, was removed from office in April after being convicted of electoral fraud. Rahman had argued the sale was needed to offset spending cuts from the British government.Moore, one of Britain’s best-known 20th-century artists, created “Draped Steated Woman” in 1957, partly inspired by images of Londoners sheltering from the Blitz.He made six casts of the sculpture, with versions going to Brussels, Melbourne, Jerusalem, Wuppertal in Germany and Yale University in Connecticut. He sold the sixth to London’s now-abolished county council in 1960 for a low price in order to enrich the lives of East Enders.When the public housing complex was torn down in the 1990s, the sculpture was moved to a sculpture park in northern England. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Artists, Moore’s daughter and London Mayor Boris Johnson all opposed the borough’s plan to sell the sculpture, whose value has been estimated at between 5 million and 20 million pounds ($7.7 million and $31 million).Copyright © The Associated Press.

Seattle Detroit Baltimore Best for Recent Grads

first_imgSeattle, Detroit, Baltimore Best for Recent Grads in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News Share May 10, 2017 623 Views center_img HOUSING Millennials recent graduates students Trulia 2017-05-10 Aly J. Yale For recent college graduates, Seattle, Detroit, Baltimore, and Pittsburgh are some of the country’s best places to live, according to new Trulia research released on Wednesday. Trulia used real estate listings on its site, as well as job postings on Indeed.com, to determine the “sweet spots” that offer both good jobs (ones appropriate for recent graduates) and in-budget housing (properties that a recent graduate could presumably afford).About 6 percent of young college graduates moved locations for a new job last year—more than four times the amount of all adults in general.“These educated young adults are particularly prone to move for a job or a job search,” Trulia reported. “Whereas just 1.4 percent of all adults moved in the past year to take or look for a new job, 6.2 percent of young college grads did.”Ultimately, Trulia found, the markets with the most job opportunities and the highest earning potential are the most out-of-budget for recent graduates. These areas include Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Houston, New York, and San Jose, California. Still, there are some metros that are affordable and offer a decent job market for a young grad.“The bad news is that the local markets with the most opportunities for young grads are among the least affordable,” Trulia reported. “The good news is that some lower-cost markets also offer numerous opportunities for recent grads, though not as many as the priciest markets. While there’s no place that offers the magic combination of extensive job opportunities and easily affordable housing (and if that place existed, it probably wouldn’t stay affordable for long), we found six metros where you can spend a bit less on housing without giving up too much on the job options.”Detroit came in at No. 3 in terms of living affordability, while nearly 42 percent of listings in Dayton, Ohio, meet the typical new grad’s budget. In Seattle, Trulia revealed, nearly 24 percent of all job listings are appropriate for new graduates, while Baltimore has a strong job market and Hartford, Connecticut, offers great median income.Pittsburgh offers the best of both worlds, according to Trulia. It ranks No. 17 in affordability and No. 37 for jobs.last_img read more

AKEL to propose exemption of first residence from IPT

first_imgMain opposition AKEL said on Friday it will resubmit an amendment to the immovable property tax that will exempt the first residence, as a spat with the government continued unabated.AKEL also accused the government of “lying shamelessly” when it claimed that this specific form of taxation had been included in the memorandum of understanding agreed between the previous administration (AKEL) and international lenders.Party spokesman Giorgos Loukaides said the previous government had twice submitted IPT bills exempting first residences — up to €40,000 in value with 1980s prices — and a total of 78 per cent of property owners from paying tax.The current IPT excludes properties up to €5,000 in value.“We understand the coalition government’s great difficulty to defend the philosophy of the socially unfair and crushing taxation they imposed on vulnerable groups of the population and the lower middle class in an effort to reduce the tax paid by big landowners whose interests they serve,” Loukaides said.What AKEL did not understand, Loukaides added, was the administration’s tactic of denying its responsibilities over decisions that were exclusively theirs.Ruling DISY was quick to respond, asking AKEL to admit that its government had opted to adopt the IPT in a bid to raise €69 million instead of cutting state spending.DISY MP Prodromos Prodromou said international lenders had asked Cyprus to raise €20 million from IPT and at the same time cut certain expenses – the AKEL government preferred the additional IPT.You May LikeSub Compact SUVs | Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
