Libya UN official urges increased funding for mine action work

1 December 2011A senior United Nations official has urged donors to increase funding for de-mining efforts in Libya, where mine action teams are striving to clear landmines and other explosive remnants of war after the recent conflict to ensure that the weapons do not harm civilians. “Good progress has been made so far, but mine action organizations are stretched to the limit with many priority areas as yet unassessed,” said Georg Charpentier, UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for Libya, when yesterday he visited an area near the city of Misrata where mine action work is under way.“Further funding is necessary for operations to continue into the new year and to capitalize on the investment already made in equipment and training,” he said.Mine clearance teams have so far removed a total of 77,943 items of unexploded ordnance and conducted mine risk education for more than 26,623 people. However, the area covered is just a fraction of contaminated areas and the key challenge remains the capacity of clearance teams, which are facing funding shortfalls, to scale up their work.Mr. Charpentier stressed that international funding of mine action programmes will be required until the Libya’s own financial resources become available.He also visited an ammunition storage area and a local exhibition featuring interactive mine risk education presentations by two partner non-governmental organizations (NGOs). He was accompanied by the liaison officer of the National Transitional Council’s (NTC) Joint Mine Action Coordination Team, the programme manager of the UN Mine Action Service (UNMAS) in Libya and representatives of UN agencies and NGOs.The NTC declared the full liberation of Libya on 23 October, eight months after the start of the popular uprising against the regime of long-time ruler Colonel Muammar al-Qadhafi, who was eventually captured and killed. read more

FEATURE We invest in peace

Child protection officer in the Central African Republic, Ben Zakour Man tells us how peacekeeping is an investment for peace. Human rights officer in Haiti, Anna Inncenti describes the life in a peacekeeping mission and how it is an investment for peace. Peacekeeping is a partnership between the UN, Member States and regional organizations that support each other. In Somalia, for example, there is a peacekeeping mission run by the African Union, with UN support and European funding. Alain-Pierre works for UN Support mission in Somalia. He explains why partnership is an investment for peace. Their personal stories Since the first UN deployment in 1948, more than one million men and women have served under the UN flag with distinction and courage. During that period, over 3,500 of them have lost their lives in the service of peace. Several current peacekeepers share their personal stories on why they chose to serve this noble mission. To date, 54 missions have already completed their mandates and closed; two more will do so in the months ahead. Ben Zakour Man, a child protection officer with the UN mission in the Central African Republic, discusses why peacekeeping works. Over 120 Member States contribute uniformed personnel to 16 UN missions worldwide, which operate on a budget that is less than 0.5 per cent of global military spending. Every mission aims to save lives, prevent mass atrocities, set the stage for peace and then close. While attention is often focused on the role of the military within UN peace operations, the part played by political, civil affairs, police, human rights and community-focused initiatives, as explained by some of the staff themselves, are equally vital. Anna Innocenti is a human rights officer with the UN mission in Haiti: This year’s theme – “Investing in peace around the globe” – resonates powerfully and personally with the military, police and civilian UN staff deployed in the field, often in places where peace has yet to be found. Every day, peacekeepers help bring peace and stability to war-torn societies around the world Secretary-General António Guterres“Every day, peacekeepers help bring peace and stability to war-torn societies around the world,” Secretary-General António Guterres said in a video message for the Day, outlining various tasks such as protecting civilians in harm’s way, promoting human rights and the rule of law, removing landmines, advancing negotiations and securing a better future in the places they are deployed. “Now, more than ever, it is essential that we continue investing in peace around the world,” he stressed. The communities in which UN peacekeepers serve can count on people such as Lt. Ramirez, liaison officer in South Sudan, to ensure that security is guaranteed to go about their duty: Lt. Eduardo Francia Ramirez explains how his work as a liaison officer in the UN Mission in South Sudan is an investment for peace. read more

Julian Assanges Dating Profile Leaked May Be Used in Court

first_imgHey reader, are you a single lady age 22-46 who is a “spirited, erotic, non-[conformist]?” with “innate perceptiveness and spunk?” Good news. We may have just the guy for you, a 36-year-old 6’2 Australian ex-pat who is “87 percent slut.”Of course, he’s not perfect. First there’s the fact that he’s hated by a number of the world’s governments for his role in leaking sensitive information. And then there are the rape charges–he’s currently being held on those.WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s OkCupid dating profile has, fittingly, been leaked. The page contains such classied info as “Want a regular, down to earth guy? Keep moving. I am not the droid you’re looking for. Save us both while you still can” and “I like women from countries that have sustained political turmoil. Western culture seems to forge women that are valueless and inane.”Upon reviewing the leaked profile, OkCupid CEO Sam Yagan confirmed it with the press, stating, “Yep, we believe it to be legitimate; it would have been quite an elaborate hoax otherwise.”The profile hasn’t been accessed since 2006 (Assange has been a pretty busy guy, as of late)–so if this thing is indeed a hoax, someone’s done a really good job covering their tracks.The question now is whether the profile might be used as character evidence for Assange, who describes himself as, “very protective of women and children.” The whole part about having “Asian teengirl stalkers” might be a little more troubling, however…last_img read more

This VR Hypersuit Could Change VR As We Know It

first_img CES Reinstates Innovation Award for High-Tech Sex Toy2019 Tech Trends Worth Getting Hyped About Stay on target Virtual reality can already feel pretty real as it is, especially when you’re in the middle of a, particularly engaging scene. But at CES 2017’s first event, CES Unveiled, an amazing new product was revealed that could very well herald the future of virtual reality the way we know it: the Hypersuit.SlashGear went hands-on with the Hypersuit during the CES 2017 event, which you can check out below, and it looks like some of the most fun you could have while wearing a VR headset. The demonstration involved getting “into” the suit, which looks admittedly like sitting on your stomach and having some sort of back massage, but it probably feels a whole lot cooler than that, at least for your perception.The Hypersuit is basically a place where those interested in the physical sensations attached to what you’re doing in virtual reality can “jump in,” feeling like you’re riding a motorcycle, flying, or doing something totally awesome in the virtual space. Those who demo the unit check out things like the Base Jump, the Cosmonaut, Super Hero, Flying Suit, and a demo experience where you fly like a bird.Of course, there’s not a finished product out there just yet, but you can test out the prototype just as SlashGear did if you’re able to make it out to a demonstration. And it looks like the finished version could very well change up the way we interact with and get enjoyment out of virtual reality in the first place.Check out the video of the demonstration below and see how this awesome-looking piece of technology could end up changing the way you see and think about VR going forward. There’s a massive library of virtual reality titles out there that could be made even more fun with the Hypersuit, so hopefully consumers will have a chance to check it out soon.For more CES coverage, check out our pals at PCMag.last_img read more

BAHAMAS Digital system being explored for the courts

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, January 15, 2018 – Nassau –  A digital recording system is being investigated for use in the Courts.   In his address at the ceremonies to officially open the Legal Year, Thursday, January 11, 2018, Acting Chief Justice Stephen Isaacs said the new system would bring some “relief” to Magistrates.“This has a lot of potential especially when it is considered that Magistrate’s Courts, in particular, can only engage stenographers on request.  That means that the recording of the evidence, submissions, exchanges between bench and bar are recorded by hand,” said Acting Chief Justice Isaacs.He explained that the stenographers in the Magistrate’s Court were removed years ago on the expectation that voice recording systems would be purchased and installed.“When the stenographers were removed, the work of the Magistrates was adversely affected.  The hand-written record is far slower to produce than a stenographic record.   This not only adversely affected the Magistrates but it slowed down the pace of trials and appeals being disposed of.”Acting Chief Justice Isaacs remarked that the exploration which is being conducted with the assistance of the United States Embassy is “anxiously” awaited.

Palestinians face hurdles to a greener West Bank

first_img Sponsored Stories Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates “We try to send a message to our parents to reduce the use of paper, even the one we use in the bathroom or for cleaning purposes, and to reduce the use of plastic,” said Mayar Fawadleh, a grade school student at the St. Joseph school, who showed off a dress and hat she made out of recycled plastic and paper.St. Joseph is one of 14 Ramallah schools running environmental classes this year, part of a $52,000 initiative funded by the Palestinian Authority, Ramallah city hall and private companies. Still, educators say they face many obstacles: paltry budgets, poor infrastructure, bad habits and life under Israel’s thumb.On a sunny spring afternoon, a dozen kindergartners gathered at the Friends School in Ramallah to play with worms fed on their sandwich scraps to produce soil fertilizer.The kids have plastic lunch boxes and reusable water bottles, and make field trips to a green facility where they learn about wastewater recycling, solar panels and gardening.Malvena Aljamal, who runs the environmental directorate at the Ramallah municipality, said the four-year-old program is a critical first ecological lesson for about 4,000 children in nearly all the city’s schools. New Year’s resolution: don’t spend another year in a kitchen you don’t like Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family “The Israeli occupation will not continue forever,” Khatib said. “In the long term when there is an independent Palestinian state, I think about the future generations of Palestinians, who are entitled to live in dignity, harmony and a safe environment.”Sami Backleh, who teaches nature courses at al-Quds University, already notices a change. He says it’s easier to get Palestinian government support for environmental workshops and summer camps for children.As for his students, “Ten years back when I would say I want to go hiking, people asked me, ‘what’s that?’” Backleh said. “Now, there’s hundreds of groups every week.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Top Stories Associated PressRAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) – After years of neglect, the Palestinians are going green.In a society preoccupied with the struggle for independence from Israel, protecting the environment has often been sidelined _ as evidenced by the ubiquitous sight of burning trash and piles of garbage bags on sidewalks in this city of 30,000 north of Jerusalem.Trying to raise awareness, officials are encouraging thousands of children to collect compost, visit recycling centers and plant trees. The hope is that the young generation will learn good habits, and maybe teach their parents something about conservation. New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements His department has just $20,000 to spend on education. The Education Ministry this year devoted $3 million to environmental education thanks to European donations, but officials say poor coordination often stymies joint efforts.In the Israeli-controlled part of the West Bank, managing environmental damage in rural areas is nearly impossible, and getting Israeli approval to building landfills and recycling plants far from Palestinian cities can take years.Nader Khatib, director of the Palestinian office of Friends of the Earth Middle East, said the West Bank has only one environmentally safe landfill, in the north. Besides the planned but still unapproved one outside Ramallah, the Israeli administration said it has approved construction of another dumpsite in the south that will be shared by Palestinians and Jewish settlers.Khatib predicted trouble, saying: “If the Israelis dump their garbage there, that’s totally illegal because the settlements are illegal.”Despite the holdups, Khatib saw some reasons for optimism. He said Hebron Polytechnic University has a new environmental engineering track. Other schools near Ramallah and Nablus have had master’s degree programs for water and environment since the 1990s. Comments   Share   Men’s health affects baby’s health too 5 treatments for adult scoliosis Aljamal said the challenges are many.Ten percent of Ramallah’s waste goes uncollected daily, she said, because some residents are too lazy to take it to the containers spread around the city. Instead, they burn their garbage, releasing toxic chemicals, or just toss it into neighbors’ yards and open lots.What is collected lands in an unplanned, unregulated landfill in an upscale neighborhood. A proper landfill planned for a nearby village has been held up for more than 10 years because Israel delayed approval and because the owners of the land were scattered around the world, Aljamal said. The Israeli government body that administers planning in the rural West Bank confirmed a permit has not yet been issued.A plan to truck rubbish to a site farther north will cost $1 million a year, Aljamal said, and to afford it Ramallah has shelved plans to build an urban park.The rest of the West Bank faces greater hurdles.Yousef Abu Safiya of the Palestinian Environmental Authority says he lacks the resources to enforce bans on unregulated burning and dumping, or to create a green police force of 200 officers modeled on a similar unit in Jordan.He said his office is integrating green values into schools and summer camps around the West Bank, but the education effort is hamstrung by disorganization.last_img read more

K. beginning to offer discounts in 2010. there is common consensus on what it might do. who has already taken oath.It will be interesting to see what view the collegium takes on this And what it says about the government’s move to segregate — which impacts the succession planning of the collegium The memorandum of procedure is silent on segregation so the collegium might not be able to unilaterally alter it But will it suggest that the matter be taken up on the judicial side to expressly foreclose the government’s (unstated) power to segregate Dalit representation Of course the government is being clever especially in raising the issue of absence of a Dalit judge in the Supreme Court It aligns perfectly well with its political and electoral messaging for Dalits especially faced with a severe backlash from Dalits after the Supreme Court’s judgement on the SC/ST Atrocities Act and earlier attacks on Dalits That does not relieve the apex court of the responsibility of answering the question: Why is there no Dalit judge Especially because it has been solely in charge of appointments for the past 25 years The collegium can respond to all these issues in detail and make the reasons public to clear the air Or it can use the sledgehammer of judicial independence given unto it by itself and send a one-line ‘we-stand-by-our-recommendation’ missive to the government Hopefully the collegium will choose the first option The small stumpy Y chromosome—possessed by male mammals but not females and often shrugged off as doing little more than determining the sex of a developing fetus—may impact human biology in a big way Two independent studies have concluded that the sex chromosome which shrank millions of years ago retains the handful of genes that it does not by chance but because they are key to our survival The findings may also explain differences in disease susceptibility between men and women “The old textbook description says that once maleness is determined by a few Y chromosome genes and you have gonads all other sex differences stem from there” says geneticist Andrew Clark of Cornell University who was not involved in either study “These papers open up the door to a much richer and more complex way to think about the Y chromosome” The sex chromosomes of mammals have evolved over millions of years originating from two identical chromosomes Now males possess one X and one Y chromosome and females have two Xs The presence or absence of the Y chromosome is what determines sex—the Y chromosome contains several genes key to testes formation But while the X chromosome has remained large throughout evolution with about 2000 genes the Y chromosome lost most of its genetic material early in its evolution; it now retains less than 100 of those original genes That’s led some scientists to hypothesize that the chromosome is largely indispensable and could shrink away entirely To determine which Y chromosome genes are shared across species Daniel Winston Bellott a biologist at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research in Cambridge Massachusetts and colleagues compared the Y chromosomes of eight mammals including humans chimpanzees monkeys mice rats bulls and opossums The overlap they found wasn’t just in those genes known to determine the sex of an embryo Eighteen diverse genes stood out as being highly similar between the species The genes had broad functions including controlling the expression of genes in many other areas of the genome The fact that all the species have retained these genes despite massive changes to the overall Y chromosome hints that they’re vital to mammalian survival “The thing that really came home to us was that these ancestral Y chromosome genes—these real survivors of millions of years of evolution—are regulators of lots of different processes” Bellott says Bellott and his colleagues looked closer at the properties of the ancestral Y chromosome genes and found that the majority of them were dosage-dependent—that is they required two copies of the gene to function (For many genes on the sex chromosomes only one copy is needed; in females the copy on the second X chromosome is turned off and in males the gene is missing altogether) But with these genes the female has one on each X chromosome and the male has a copy on both the X and Y chromosomes Thus despite the disappearance of nearby genes these genes have persisted on the Y chromosome the team reports online today in Nature “The Y chromosome doesn’t just say you’re a male; it doesn’t just say you’re a male and you’re fertile It says that you’re a male you’re fertile and you’re going to survive” Bellott explains His group next plans to look in more detail at what the ancestral Y chromosome genes do where they’re expressed in the body and which are required for an organism’s survival In a second Nature paper also published online today another group of researchers used a different genetic sequencing approach and a different set of mammals to ask similar questions about the evolution of the Y chromosome Like Bellott’s paper the second study concluded that one reason that the Y chromosome has remained stable over recent history is the dosage dependence of the remaining genes “Knowing now that the Y chromosome can have effects all over the genome I think it becomes even more important to look at its implications on diseases” Clark says “The chromosome is clearly much more than a single trigger that determines maleness” Because genes on the Y chromosome often vary slightly in sequence—and even function—from the corresponding genes on the X males could have slightly different patterns of gene expression throughout the body compared with females due to not only their hormone levels but also their entire Y chromosome These gene expression variances could explain the differences in disease risks or disease symptoms between males and females Clark saysA day before the Federal Communications Commission’s net neutrality vote AT&T announced trials of its Project AirGig a technology that aims to provide internet over power lines However the announcement may have undercut FCC chairman Ajit Pait’s claim that rolling back the Internet regulations would encourage investment in internet technologies since it has been in development for months if not years AirGig was first revealed in September 2016 before the presidential election and Pai’s nomination as FCC Chair Describing AirGig as a “first-of-its-kind system” AT&T claims that the technology could one day deliver blazing-fast internet speed of more than 1 gigabit per second The technology is currently in two trials one with an electricity provider outside the US that began this past fall and another that recently began in rural Georgia If successful AirGig could improve broadband speed for people across rural America where cable companies and fiber-optic networks haven’t yet

Thursday’s FCC vote the question of how much will internet services will cost without net neutrality is weighing heavily on households’ minds and AT&T has not yet mentioned anything about AirGig’s pricing Instead the company is highlighting the technical details Rather than sending data through the power lines AirGig uses low-cost plastic antenna attached to the power lines to relay data to homes from the web That means it can attach to existing infrastructure wherever electricity is already flowing Will it work Perhaps With 5G wireless data slowly plodding to market AT&T may be hedging

activities send some people running while others can’t get enough But what’s actually going on in the brains of fear-loving folks Less than you might think according to a study recently published in the journal Emotion After having a voluntary scary experience the researchers found people were in better moods and had decreased brain activity overall “We think it’s very similar at least at a physiological and neurological level to the runner’s high experience where you’re really pushing yourself and your sympathetic nervous system is in go-mode” explains study co-author Margee Kerr a sociologist at the University of Pittsburgh who studies fear Once you’re out of the scary situation one where there was never any real threat to begin with feel-good endorphins course through the body she says “It is a reprioritizing of energy of focus into the body You’re grounded not being caught up in thinking” For the study Kerr and her colleagues went straight to the scary source: ScareHouse an “extreme” haunted house in Pittsburgh Kerr had been consulting with the haunted house company on its design using her research to maximize its experience for peak fear She realized it would make the perfect environment for studying fear and the people who chose to endure it The researchers recruited people who had already purchased tickets for ScareHouse allowing them to study people who voluntarily submit to terrifying activities for social or recreational reasons In total 262 people filled out surveys about their mood before and after the experience and 100 of them wore sensors on their heads that monitored brain activity before and after they went through the haunted house TIME Health Newsletter Get the latest health and science news plus: burning questions and expert tips View Sample Sign Up Now After going through the haunted house about half of people reported being in a better mood while 33% reported no significant change and 17% reported a worse mood; there were no significant gender differences Most people said they felt happy after going through the haunted house while fewer people reported feeling tired and anxious after the haunted house than they did before Mood increases were particularly significant among people who said they had “challenged their fears” and among those who described the experience as “intense” and “thrilling” “Afterwards people feel great It’s kind of like the idea of pain offset: you feel better when pain is removed” Kerr explains “A lot of activity in the body is in anticipation and it’s in that conclusion where the enjoyment really comes in” It stands to reason that feelings of anxiety and stress would decrease after a frightening activity but the researchers also discovered a surprising finding: When the people who wore sensors completed tasks like drawing counting backward and viewing pictures they actually had decreased neural reactivity less total brain activity essentially after they emerged from the haunted house compared to before they went in This suggests that “being scared interrupts their thinking” Kerr says This isn’t necessarily a bad thing Decreased brain activity could mean that people were processing information more efficiently or it could simply suggest that they were in a subdued “zen” state almost akin to meditation Kerr says Considering that quite a few participants said they felt somewhat dazed after the experience the second explanation seems likely Kerr says The findings of the study may apply to more than haunted houses Kerr says she hopes to use them in future research about exposure therapy a practice commonly used in phobia treatment that involves exposing people to things that scare them to gradually reduce fear By its nature exposure therapy can be an unpleasant and uncomfortable experience for patients but Kerr says the current research suggests that starting with a “fun scare” for those who are open to it might make more reasonable situations more palatable later on Therapists could treat someone with social anxiety for example by initially exposing them to an outlandish scenario like a subway car full of zombies before moving down to a regular train packed with people she suggests Of course not everyone finds scary situations fun and Kerr says there’s nothing wrong with that “It’s okay if people don’t like to do these things” she says “I would hate for people to think ‘Oh I have to go do this because it’s going to make me feel good’ A big part of it is wanting to do it” Write to Jamie Ducharme at jamieducharme@timecom “Such a thing has
