Senior UN officials spotlight womens health rights to accelerate global development

Investing in the sexual and reproductive health of women and girls will help accelerate the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the post-2015 sustainable development agenda, United Nations senior officials said on the final day of the Women Deliver Conference. “We need – in Governments, legislatures, and public administrations – more people who will lead on these issues,” today said UN Development Programme (UNDP) Administrator, Helen Clark, in her remarks to the third Women Deliver Conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.“We need many more women in positions of power, and women who are prepared to use that power to advance the human development and rights of other women.” She added that life had improved for many girls and women since the eight anti-poverty targets known as the MDGs were launched with a deadline of 2015, and a 20-year action plan on sexual and reproductive health rights was agreed on in 1994 in Cairo at the UN International Conference on Population and Development.Some 800 women die daily due to complications related to pregnancy and childbirth, with an estimated 80 million unplanned pregnancies and 20 million unsafe abortions annually, Miss Clark cited. “By denying that most basic sexual and reproductive right, the right to control one’s fertility, societies disempower girls and women,” she said, and this impedes development. “Countries where women have rights and opportunity denied cannot maximize their development potential – that can’t happen if half the population is not equally empowered.” In his video message to the conference, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged action, “Now is the time to do even more to deliver for women and girls and accelerate progress toward meeting all our development goals.” Mr. Ban said this could be done by “improving access to family planning, information and care, by giving women the services they need before, during and after pregnancy, and by providing quality health care to all.”Billed as the largest conference on girls and women of the decade, more than 7,000 people are estimated to have attended the three-day conference, according to the organizers’ website.Launched in 2007, Women Deliver works globally to generate political commitment and financial investment for fulfilling the MDG target which seeks to reduce maternal mortality and achieve universal access to reproductive health. According to its website, the initiative builds on commitments, partnerships, and networks to end preventable deaths that kill some 287,000 girls and women every year from pregnancy-related causes. “As we enter the homestretch to 2015 and chart the path ahead, let us ensure that the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women and girls are front and centre,” Mr. Ban said. “After all, investing in women’s health and rights is not only the right thing to do; it is the smart thing to do.“Working together, we can and will make a life-changing difference for the future of humanity.” read more

Report Balotelli set for Marseille medical

first_imgItalian striker Mario Balotelli will reportedly undergo a medical today at Marseille after being granted permission to leave OGC NiceThe 28-year-old had been strongly linked with a switch to Marseille in last summer’s transfer window before the move fell through.In light of that, Balotelli remained at Nice for this season after an impressive first two seasons at the French Riviera with 43 goals scored in 66 games.This impressive form in France led Balotelli to receive a recall into the Italy national team by former Inter Milan and Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini after a four-year absence.But Balotelli’s performances at Nice have dropped off with the Italian failing to find the net once in all 10 of his appearances this season.In light of this, manager Patrick Vieira gave Balotelli a few extra days off during the French winter break in order to make a decision over his future.And now Sky Sports reports that the move to Marseille is back on with Balotelli set to sign a deal that will earn him £2.7m for 17 games during his six months at the Stade Velodrome.Currently, there is no mention of Marseille’s alleged plans for Balotelli come to the end of the season.Opinion: Neymar needs to apologize to PSG’s supporters Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After such a dramatic summer during the transfer window, Neymar truly needs to apologize to all the PSG supporters this weekend.When Neymar finished last…Although the transfer will come as a welcome boost for the controversial forward, who was warned by Mancini earlier this month that he must prove he merits a recall to Italy after omitting him in their last five games.“I’ve done my best for him and I always hope something good happens to him. He’ll only return to the national team if he deserves it,” said Mancini on Balotelli.“As a young lad he gave me so much, both at Inter and in Manchester, but he’s given me very little in recent months.“Still, he’s 28 and he has time if he wants. The Euros and World Cup should be fatal attractions for him.“The European qualifiers begin in March. If we’re in trouble and he keeps scoring one or two goals per game then I’ll call him up.“However, he must know that he won’t be a part of our future due to his age. It’s a principle that applies to everyone.”West Ham and Newcastle were also reportedly linked with a move for Balotelli in this month’s transfer window.last_img read more

Tlingit Expert Linguist and Writer Dies at 72

first_imgTlingit expert, linguist and award winning writer Richard Dauenhauer passed away Tuesday morning at Bartlett Regional Hospital. He had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer about a month ago. Dauenhauer was 72 years old.Download Audio:He was married to Tlingit poet and scholar Nora Marks Dauenhauer. Together they authored many books, including the Classics of Tlingit Oral Literature series published by Sealaska Heritage Institute and University of Washington Press. They are two-time winners of the American Book Award.He was poet laureate of Alaska in the 1980s and started teaching at the University of Alaska in 1984. In 2013, the University of Alaska Foundation honored him with the Edith R. Bullock Prize for Excellence for his contributions in preserving Alaska Native languages.Assistant professor of Alaska Native Languages at UAS Lance Twitchell called Dauenhauer a “powerhouse” who merged the Tlingit world with the academic world.“I remember telling him years ago and then I told him about a month ago that his work changed my life and put me on a path that I’m very thankful for and because of his work, I know what I’m supposed to be doing. And so, it’s amazing to have people like that close to you that can have such an impact on so many people in such a positive way,” Twitchell said.This is a developing story from KTOO-Juneau. More details and stories from the life of Richard Dauenhauer are forthcoming.last_img read more

From sports icon to Pakistans likely new leader

first_imgCricket star-turned-politician Imran Khan, chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), gives a speech as he declares victory in the general election in Islamabad, Pakistan on 26 July, 2018. Photo: ReutersFor Pakistani cricket legend-turned-politician Imran Khan, his party’s first place in a national election, putting him on the brink of becoming the country’s next prime minister, is the culmination of a battle that started more than two decades ago.For years, he was dismissed as a political dilettante who could not convert his personal popularity into significant seats in parliament for the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), or Pakistan Movement for Justice, he founded.But Wednesday’s election has dramatically changed that, putting the former sports star on the brink of power. With nearly half the votes counted, PTI held a commanding lead and Khan declared victory in a speech on Thursday.Khan could join George Weah, one of Africa’s greatest footballers who took over as president of Liberia earlier this year, as the only other international sports personality to head his country’s government.As prime minister, Khan, 65, would be tested on several fronts, from dealing with an urgent foreign currency shortage to managing a tense relationship with the United States.”I don’t discount the role that experience in sports leadership can translate into other domains,” said Sameer Lalwani, co-director of the South Asia program at the Stimson Center think tank.”(But) he has never had to govern… I worry that what we’ve seen about his public profile and the way he portrays himself, that he is much more likely to surround himself with sycophants.”Khan will also have to battle allegations that he has been helped by Pakistan’s powerful military both during the campaign and in the vote count – rival parties have said soldiers at voting centres threw out their observers when counting began.Khan promised to investigate voting complaints, but has said those who accuse him of military help are trying to preserve a corrupt system. The army, which has ruled the country for almost half its history, denies interfering in politics.An Oxford graduate, Khan campaigned hard on populist promises of a prosperous Pakistan that breaks away from its persistent legacy of corruption.Before the advent of PTI, Pakistani politics had been dominated by two parties – former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and the Pakistan People’s Party of assassinated former leader Benazir Bhutto – when the military has not been in power.Imran Khan holding 1992 world cup trophy. Photo: CollectedCRICKET STARKhan began his cricket career in 1971 as a fast bowler known for his pace and aggressive tactics. By the time he retired more than 20 years later, he was regarded as one of the world’s best ever all-rounders.A glamorous fixture of London’s high society in his younger days, he was captain of Pakistan’s team of talented but wayward stars and – with a reputation as a stern taskmaster – led them to win cricket’s World Cup for the first time in 1992.He is still known as “Kaptaan” (captain) in Pakistan.After his retirement, Khan raised funds to open a cancer hospital in the memory of his mother in his native Lahore in 1994.He has mostly shed the playboy image and made public shows of devotion to Islam, building a large political following in northern Pakistan, especially with the conservative Pashtun population.Earlier this year, he married his spiritual adviser. Khan’s previous two marriages, particularly when he wed his first wife, British heiress Jemima Khan, had captivated international tabloids.Khan started the PTI in 1996, but until 2013 it briefly held only one seat in parliament.”It’s been a 22-year struggle for justice for the people of Pakistan,” Khan told Reuters in an interview earlier this month.His party became the country’s third-largest in the National Assembly in the previous election, benefiting in part from a groundswell of support, especially from young, urban voters fed up with the country’s corruption.RELATIONS WITH WASHINGTONKhan has been critical of the United States’ policy in the region and vocally opposed drone strikes on Pakistani territory.He would have to manage a tense relationship with Washington, which has accused Islamabad of not doing enough to root out Taliban militants.Earlier this year, President Donald Trump tweeted that the United States had “foolishly” given Pakistan more than $33 billion in aid.Khan opposes the United States’ open-ended presence in Afghanistan. In his victory speech on Thursday, he said he wanted “mutually beneficial” relations with Washington, and peace in Afghanistan.”I do think he will be publicly more adversarial.. (But) he is certainly capable of being more pragmatic, that just hasn’t served his purposes in campaigning and branding himself,” said a former senior U.S. official, who has met Khan several times.The official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said Khan’s stance on the United States would likely be moderated by Pakistan’s powerful military, which seeks a more stable relationship with America.ECONOMIC CHALLENGEKhan will also have to urgently resolve a currency crisis that threatens Pakistan’s fast-growing economy, which expanded by 5.8 percent in the past year but will most likely need its second bailout from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) since 2013.He has said his future government will launch an anti-corruption campaign and poverty reduction program modelled on China, Pakistan’s traditional ally that has financed billions of dollars of infrastructure projects.At the same time, he has promised to build an “Islamic welfare state”, create 10 million jobs and build 5 million homes for the poor.Asked how he would fund such social spending, Khan has vowed to double Pakistan’s woefully low tax collection rates – the country has one of the world’s lowest tax-to-GDP ratios – by reforming the “corrupt” Federal Bureau of Revenue.”Instead of making policies for a small elite, we will make all policies for this poor class, the oppressed class,” he said on Thursday.last_img read more

Many Houston Public Housing Residents Dont Have Central AirConditioning

first_imgThe Houston Housing Authority has over 3,800 units of public housing, and more than one-third of those homes don’t have central air-conditioning. The Housing Authority said it doesn’t track how many people in the 1,278 units without central air-conditioning may have installed window units on their own. The federal government does require that all of those homes have heat. Zoe Middleton, the Southeast Texas co-director of the policy group Texas Housers, said regulations should guarantee air-conditioning, as well. “It does not make any sense in places like Houston,” Middleton said. “Especially because it puts people at enormous risk, given our high temperatures.” Madison Sloan, director of Texas Appleseed’s Disaster Recovery and Fair Housing Project, said excessive heat can be unsafe. “It causes health problems, exacerbates asthma, heart and lung disease, can even have an impact on mental health,” Sloan said. Tory Gunsolley, president and CEO of the Houston Housing Authority, said most of the public housing buildings were constructed before central air-conditioning, but the agency has worked with private donors in the past to provide window units to tenants, particularly those with medical conditions. In Florida, Miami-Dade County has required air-conditioning in all redeveloped public housing units since 2001. Gunsolley said if Houston passed a similar requirement, it likely would be an unfunded mandate. “That’s the crux of the matter,” Gunsolley said. “How do you pay for these things? Public housing is already underfunded and we don’t have the money.” Last week, San Antonio City Council voted to contribute $500,000 to a $1.5 million dollar public private partnership to install air-conditioning in 40 percent of the city’s public housing that currently doesn’t have it.

HandsOn Toys Are Dead in Spyro Reignited Trilogy

first_img After the smash success of last year’s Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, it was only a matter of time before Activision went back to Spyro The Dragon, that other former Sony exclusive PlayStation 1 platformer franchise they owned. Plus, with Skylanders and the entire toys-to-life genre (besides amiibo) pretty much dead, revisiting Spyro’s roots seems like the smartest thing to do with the character. We recently got to play some of the upcoming Spyro Reignited Trilogy, and does right by that purple little monster. Trade In Your Nintendo Switch For a Better Battery (With a Catch)Get Used to ‘Fortnite’s’ Powerful Mech Suits The most striking thing about the Crash Bandicoot remakes was just the level of modern visual polish they added to what were once blocky primitive polygonal early 3D games. And the Spyro Reignited Trilogy matches if not exceeds that level of arguably unearned beauty. We suspect they’re even sharing some graphical technology.Granted the developers are different. With Crash Bandicoot Vicarious Visions was remaking Naughty Dog games whereas here Toys for Bob is remaking Insomniac games. But just the sheen, cartoon bounciness, and even little details like sunlight dispersing through dense grass mesmerized us in ways similar to Crash. Cutscenes have also been redone, but I couldn’t hear if Spyro was once again voiced by Elijah Wood (nah, it’s Tom Kenny).Fortunately, along with similar production quality enhancements, these first three Spyro games (Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage!, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon) have the added benefit of just being straight up better than the original Crash Bandicoot games. They are actual open 3D platformers, not weird hallway chases full of cheap death and bad jumps. Even in this brief demo I was burning the fur off of guard dogs and getting a running start to glide over vast chasms. It was a lot of fun, even if the simple level design of the era did remind of the simple level design of today’s kids games like Skylanders.As with Crash Bandicoot, there’s also just a lot of nostalgia for the original Spyro games. This demo was actually a little party with a true-blue Spyro fan bartender, Johnny Livanos, making dragon-themed drinks. So it’s cool those people are now getting a game living up to their memories of the franchise. It’s also just nice to see Spyro unshackled from the toys that had taken over his own #brand. The only Spyro toys here were this little knock-off Lego sets that were maybe the most tedious building experience I’ve ever had in my life. The instructions were so awful I didn’t even finish this little one-winged angel.Spyro Reignited Trilogy gets lit on September 21 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. No news on a Nintendo Switch version yet aside from some rumors and supposed leaks. But that seems like a no-brainer.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.center_img Stay on targetlast_img read more

Dark Matter May be Easier to Detect than Previously Thought

first_img(PhysOrg.com) — The Milky Way, like many other galaxies, is thought to be embedded in massive, lumpy amounts of dark matter that release gamma rays and other emissions. Although at first these emissions seem too faint to detect, recent observations have shown that they may be stronger than previously thought. In a new study, scientists have developed a model that predicts that gamma rays from hundreds of dark matter clumps should be detectable by the Fermi satellite that was launched in June 2008. In their study published in a recent issue of Science Express, Michael Kuhlen of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, Piero Madau of the University of California, Santa Cruz, and Joseph Silk of the University of Oxford have investigated how the luminosity from cold dark matter annihilations can be enhanced by orders of magnitude by the Sommerfeld effect. While previous calculations have shown that only a handful of the most massive dark matter halos should emit gamma rays detectable by satellites, accounting for the Sommerfeld effect suggests otherwise.“Annihilation is a quantum mechanical process that can occur whenever a particle and its antiparticle collide,” Kuhlen told PhysOrg.com. “It turns out that in many promising particle physics models the dark matter particle is its own antiparticle. In that case you only need to get to sufficiently high densities for dark matter particles to have a reasonable chance to collide with each other and hence to annihilate. It turns out that the predicted dark matter densities at the centers of subhalos are high enough that a large enough number of annihilation events might occur for Fermi to have a chance to detect the resulting radiation. Especially if the Sommerfeld effect is important.”As the researchers explain, the Sommerfeld effect is the result of a long-range attractive force between dark matter particles that effectively increases the dark matter annihilation rate. When analyzing the experimental results of other satellites, researchers discovered a surprisingly large amount of electron and antimatter emissions. The Sommerfeld effect, they suggest, might explain these puzzling signals.To explore this possibility, the researchers applied the Sommerfeld correction to simulations that use more than one billion particles to model the formation of a dark matter halo the size of the Milky Way. They found that, after they applied the corrections, smaller subhalos (and even smaller “subclumps”) are much more clearly visible than in previous predictions. When compared to expected backgrounds, the researchers predict that, even in conservative cases, ten or more subhalos should be discovered after five years of searching by the Fermi satellite. They also predict that Fermi should be able to detect some of these subhalos in its first year of observation, a prediction that will soon be tested.If the researchers are correct, dark matter detections could open up the door to interesting possibilities such as non-gravitational dark matter interactions and new particle physics. “That would be a spectacular confirmation of the particle nature of dark matter [if the Fermi satellite does detect dark matter annihilation],” Kuhlen said. “It would certainly result in a Nobel Prize for someone on the Fermi team. Don’t forget that we have no direct evidence of dark matter. Over the last 70-80 years astronomers have amassed numerous independent observational pieces of evidence for its existence, and particle physics theory provides many plausible particle candidates. As a result, dark matter is a firm part of the standard paradigm of cosmological structure formation. Nonetheless, it would be great to get some more direct confirmation of this hypothesis. Detecting the products of dark matter annihilation would provide such evidence. Furthermore it would shed light on the nature of the dark matter particle: its mass and its annihilation cross section, for example.”More information: Michael Kuhlen, Piero Madau, Joseph Silk. “Exploring Dark Matter with Milky Way Substructure.” Science Express. 10.1126/science.1174881.Copyright 2009 PhysOrg.com.

Poll fallout Families of those killed seek exemplary punishment

first_imgKolkata: The next of kin and relatives of the Trinamool Congress workers who were killed by goons allegedly enjoying patronage of BJP and CPI-M, have demanded exemplary punishment of the criminals.So far, 10 Trinamool leaders and workers have been killed – six on the day of the Panchayat election on May 14 and four during post poll violence.”It is unfortunate that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is blaming Trinamool for the poll related violence in Bengal, should know that the violence here has been engineered by his party workers, along with CPI-M. He should be ashamed of the atrocities of his partymen,” said the family members and relatives of Ujjal Sur, a resident of Gopal Kaviraj Road in Habra in North 24-Parganas. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsSur, a Trinamool Congress supporter, had raised his voice against the goons allegedly backed by CPI-M and BJP in the polling stations on May 14. When he was returning home, the criminals accosted him and beat him up with iron rods and sticks and then left him on the road in a pool of blood. He was declared brought dead when taken to hospital. Sur’s family members alleged that BJP and CPI-M had unleashed a reign of terror in the area before the polls. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedIt may be recalled that state Food minister Jyotipriyo Mullick had alleged that BJP had engaged criminals from Bangladesh, to create trouble in vast areas surrounding Habra.Thirty -eight-year-old Aditya Singh Mallah, another Trinamool Congress supporter, was attacked by BJP and CPI-M goons in Purulia and killed during post poll violence. “My brother was loved by all in the locality. He was a Trinamool activist and we never thought that he would be killed in broad daylight near our house,” said Aditya’s elder brother, adding “we want stringent action against the criminals.” “Arrest Kanti Ganguly and Sujan Chakraborty and punish them, for they have created trouble in the area,” said Arif Ali Gazi’s wife. Gazi, a resident of Kultuli in South 24-Parganas, was also murdered. Demands to arrest the BJP and CPI-M backed miscreants were also raised by the relatives of Krishnapada Sarkar, a resident of Tehatta in Nadia. The miscreants had attacked him with sharp weapons, killing him on the spot. They had also set a couple of motorcycles on fire, to scare the people of the area. The residents alleged that the goons had threatened Sarkar, not to raise his voice against them. Sarkar had refused and paid a price for it.Political experts said CPI-M has received a fresh gush of adrenalin because of BJP and the duo is trying to unleash a reign of terror in rural Bengal, thereby trying to defame the state government. “CPI-M has always tried to reap the benefit of confusion and they are trying this tactic once again,” a political expert said.last_img read more

Apple Engineer Provides Rare Glimpse Into iPhone Invention Secrets

first_img An Apple engineer who piloted software development for the very first iPhone is peeling back the curtain on Steve Jobs’ demanding creative process — as well as his swelling exuberance behind the scenes as the game-changing device gradually came into being.Though Greg Christie, who still heads Apple’s user-interface team, has never spoken out before, the company has listed him as an inventor in its latest patent suit again Samsung, which charges five additional copyright violations.That trial is slated to begin on Monday.Christie is now speaking to the press in order to convey the pioneering nature — and frequently-copied features, Apple charges — of the product he helped to conceive.Related: In Patent War, Apple and Samsung to Try Mediation Before March Court DateAmong Christie’s array of accomplishments throughout “Project Purple,” as development of the iPhone was codenamed, were: swiping to unlock, making calls from the address book, touch-based music navigation, the speed and bounce-back of list-scrolling, itemizing text messages chronologically, voicemail and calendar display, and album artwork “cover-flow.”Furthermore, Christie told The Wall Street Journal that Jobs delivered ultimatums to his “shockingly small” team for “bigger ideas” — or else. The majority of work took place, he described, in a windowless room bedecked in fluorescent lights, water-damaged walls and a poster of a running, headless chicken. Even cleaning crews weren’t allowed inside.Since Apple began litigation against Samsung in 2011, it has been awarded $930 million — a ruling that Samsung is currently appealing. However, the latest suit could be even more lucrative, reports The Journal, given that it pertains to more recent developments for phones that have sold in far greater multitudes.Related: The Two Words Steve Jobs Hated Most March 27, 2014 Enroll Now for Free Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Nowcenter_img This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. 2 min readlast_img read more

Israelis go on offensive ahead of UN report

first_img Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Officials with Hamas, a militant group sworn to Israel’s destruction, rejected the Israeli report. Izzat Risheq, a senior Hamas official, called it a “lie promoted by the occupation to cover up its crimes.” He said “the hand of justice will reach the perpetrators.”The new Israeli report is part of a broader campaign aimed at blunting the coming report by the U.N. Human Rights Commission.Over the weekend, Israel released a report compiled by a group of retired Western military officers who found that Israel met or “significantly exceeded” the international laws of war. The report was sponsored by the “Friends of Israel Initiative,” a pro-Israel group of retired politicians and diplomats from around the world.“Those who want to know the truth should read this report and read the report of the top generals,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his Cabinet. “Whoever wants a baseless automatic accusation against Israel can waste their time reading the U.N. report.”Israel has had a contentious relationship with the U.N. Human Rights Council for years, saying it is stacked with countries that themselves have poor human rights records and has focused disproportionate attention on Israel. Top Stories The Palestinians also claim that the Israeli military is incapable of investigating itself — a concern that was underscored last week when an army investigation cleared troops of any wrongdoing in an airstrike that killed four Palestinian children on a beach last summer.___Online: http://mfa.gov.il/ProtectiveEdge/Pages/default.aspxCopyright © The Associated Press.

Comments   Share   5 ways to recognize low testosterone Nabil Shaath, a senior Palestinian official, called the latest Israeli reports “sickening and outrageous” and said they strengthened the need for the Palestinians to seek international justice.Israel has argued that it took unprecedented measures to avoid civilian casualties, ordering residents to evacuate through leaflets, phone calls, radio broadcasts and warning strikes with unarmed shells ahead of live airstrikes.Shamir-Borer showed reporters what he said was a declassified “target card” that laid out the calculations Israel took before striking a suspected arms cache hidden in the home of an Islamic Jihad leader in southern Gaza.The “operational directives” listed on the card call for destroying the arms while avoiding civilian casualties. It calls for a single airstrike on the home, at night and only after warning people to leave, and “real-time surveillance” to be on the lookout for civilians.Shamir-Borer said the home was hit, and there was a “secondary blast,” indicating weapons were stored there. The report said the army was unaware of any casualties from the strike. Shamir-Borer said the army went through a similar process in all 5,000 preplanned airstrikes carried out during the fighting, though there were hundreds of reactive strikes as well. According to the latest Israeli figures, some 44 percent of the dead in Gaza were militants, far higher than Palestinian and U.N. numbers. JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel on Sunday launched a pre-emptive assault on an upcoming U.N. report into last year’s war in the Gaza Strip, saying the report is unfairly biased and issuing its own report that blames Gaza’s Hamas militant rulers for the heavy civilian casualties.The diplomatic offensive set the stage for what is expected to be a contentious showdown with U.N. officials over allegations that Israel committed war crimes during the 50-day war. Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywallcenter_img Patients with chronic pain give advice Palestinians have said that the Israeli army violated the rules of war, which include giving adequate warning to civilians, using proportionate force and distinguishing between civilians and combatants. They have pointed to the high civilian casualty count as evidence.In Sunday’s report, Israel defended itself with the same arguments it has been making since the fighting ended, albeit with a level of detail never shown before.Israel’s core claim is that Hamas is responsible for the civilian casualties because it used Gaza’s residents as “human shields” by firing rockets from residential areas and operating in schools, hospitals and mosques. It also notes that Hamas’ rockets and mortar shells were aimed at Israeli population centers.The report includes what Israel says are seized Hamas documents encouraging its fighters to move in civilian areas, knowing that it would constrain Israel’s ability to act.“We were a bit struck and surprised with the amount of documentation that we managed to recover during the operation actually indicating that this is a strategy of Hamas,” said Eran Shamir-Borer, a lawyer in the Israeli military’s international law department. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Israel has long had a contentious relationship with the United Nations, saying the world body is biased. A similar report conducted by the U.N.’s Human Rights Council following a 2008-2009 war against in Gaza was harshly critical of both Israel and Hamas.But this time around, the stakes are higher. The Palestinians have joined the International Criminal Court and are pursuing war crimes charges against Israel. The council’s new report, expected as soon as this week, could play a key role in the case against Israel.“Having on the record our view of this war is extremely important, and we have nothing to hide,” Dore Gold, the new director of Israel’s Foreign Ministry, told reporters at a special briefing held to unveil Israel’s own 242-page investigation into the war.Gold was accompanied by the country’s Deputy Foreign Minister, Tzipi Hotovely, and governmental and military legal experts who worked on the report.Israel launched its offensive in Gaza last July 8 in response to heavy rocket fire from Hamas and other militant groups in the territory. More than 2,200 Palestinians, including hundreds of civilians, were killed during the fighting, according to U.N. and Palestinian officials, while 73 people died on the Israeli side. Sponsored Stories Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu chairs the weekly cabinet meeting at his office in Jerusalem, Sunday, June 14, 2015. (Gali Tibbon/Pool Photo via AP) A report by the council into the 2008-2009 war conducted by South African jurist Richard Goldstone, found evidence that Israel and Hamas had committed war crimes, though Goldstone later backed off his key allegations against Israel.Israel has attacked the council’s latest investigation since it was ordered last July. The investigation’s mandate focuses on Israel’s activities in Gaza, but makes no mention of Hamas attacks on Israel.Israeli claims of bias forced the head of the investigation, Canadian law professor William Schabas, to resign early this year after it was discovered he had provided legal advice to the Palestine Liberation Organization.But these complaints may go only so far. The upcoming report is all but certain to come down hard on Israel, giving the Palestinians a potent weapon in their case against Israel at the International Criminal Court.Although Israel refuses to recognize the court’s jurisdiction, a case against its citizens would be embarrassing and could potentially hinder Israeli officials from traveling abroad.The case against Israel is likely to include charges that the military used excessive force in several instances of fighting, causing heavy casualties by firing artillery into crowded areas.

Webjet quarter sales takeoff

first_imgThe rising number of travellers booking vacations online has pushed Webjet’s third quarter total transaction value (TTV) up by 25 percent compared to the corresponding period last year.The online company saw its TTV rise from $149 million between July and September last year to $188 million during the three months this year.Webjet managing director John Guscic explained the increase came despite losing cheap airfares after the grounding of Tiger down under.“Most of this strong TTV growth has been produced by increasing transaction numbers as distinct from unit values, and has been achieved despite the non operation of Tiger for part of this period,” Mr Guscic said.“We believe the general travel market growth has been less than ten percent and consequently Webjet has substantially outperformed.”For more on Webjet and its strategic development plans click back onto e-Travel Blackboard next week.

Duolingos most popular language course is. Swedish What he does know is that his simple idea to take on the Rosetta Stones Berlitzs and Pimsleurs of the world with an addictive video-game-like app is changing how we think about learning languages And now for the first time Duolingo is adding an African language to its 68-course lineup: Swahili the lingua franca of eastern Africa "We started looking around and realized that we are teaching almost every European language you can think of but we had no African languages" says Van Ahn who spoke to TIME while at the Design Indaba in Cape Town an annual event celebrating design technology and art on the African continent and beyond Duolingo has more than 150 million users around the world; in the United States where the company is based there are more people learning languages on Duolingo than there are in the entire US public school system An independent study conducted by the City University of New York has shown that 34 hours on Duolingo are equivalent to a university semester of language classes And all the classes whether you are a Spanish speaker learning English or an English speaker learning Welsh (or Italian Vietnamese Klingon or a variety of other languages) are absolutely free Free language courses are not exactly profitable but thats not the point says Von Ahn After Google bought his company CAPTCHA that little test of squiggly letters most website forms use to make sure users are humans and not other computers in 2009 the Carnegie Mellon University computer science professor could afford to pursue a passion project Language learning wasnt his goal he says but he was interested in improving education so that people of all social classes could access better life opportunities "There are 12 billion people learning a foreign language" says Van Ahn who was born in Guatemala "Two thirds of them are learning English either to get a job or to go to school so they can get a job So what most of them are really doing is trying to get out of poverty" The irony he says is that the average cost of learning a language either through classes or a computer-based language program like Rosetta Stone will cost at least $1000 to get to fluency "So we decided to do languages for free" So far the Swahili course is for English speakers who want to learn the language spoken predominantly in Kenya Tanzania and parts of the Democratic Republic of Congo But once it launches on March 3 programmers will be able to work on reverse-translating the courses so that Swahili speakers can learn English opening up opportunities for a wide swath of East Africa A day before the launch Von Ahn decides to take the first lesson of the Swahili course through a trial run He hovers his cursor over a phrase: "Wewe ni Mtanzania" he reads "Does this mean we are Tanzanian" He types a tentative translation into the text box It blinks red "Oh no it means you You are Tanzanian" Despite the initial setback Von Ahn quickly gets into the rhythm Reading typing speaking and laughing When his first missed question comes up again he goes into app tester mode and tries typing with a Southern US accent: "Hey lets see if yall works Yall are Tanzanian" he types The screen flashes green "Hey it accepted it Thats pretty funny" He ends the first lesson with only one mistake "That was easy" he grins as he starts another When Duolingo first started with French Spanish English for Spanish speakers and German the idea was to bring in a small team of linguists for each language to develop the course But demands started pouring in for other languages and the team quickly realized that it would be impossible to replicate the model "Where are we going to find three Swahili speakers in Pittsburgh" Von Ahn asks (Duolingo is based at Carnegie Mellon in Pennsylvania) "I am sure they exist but they are very hard to find" Instead Duolingo decided to tap its rapidly growing language community for volunteers Von Ahn and his team adapted the apps machine-learning program so that it could take a native speakers language skills and turn them into bite size lessons for a digital classroom On average the volunteers work in teams of three for 15-20 hours a week to come up with about 20000 short sentences and their translations Then more volunteers are brought in to fine-tune the testing phase The Swahili team pulled from the United States Peace Corps language-training program in Tanzania took nearly a year to complete the testing says Branden Ryan the Gender Equality and Womens Empowerment Coordinator for the Tanzania Peace Corps program and one of the founding members of the Swahili team "It was a lot of hours yes but it was a labor of love" he says speaking by telephone from Tanzania To Ryan it was an honor to work on Duolingos first indigenous African language program He says it is just the beginning "There is a lot of interest in learning these indigenous African languages Twi Zulu Xhosa Hopefully this will pave the way for other people to contribute what they know" Von Ahn pulls up a map of all the most popular languages studied on Duolingo per country So far English (green) and French (blue) dominate in Africalogical considering the colonial ties to England France and Belgium Then he scrolls up to Europe "This is the weird one" he says pointing to Sweden which is colored pink for Swedish "So the most commonly learned language in Sweden is Swedish" He waits a beat "And it is actually Swedish from Arabic Its refugees" Duolingos Arabic to other languages programs are booming in Europe thanks to the influx of refugees from Syria and Iraq "Fascinating isnt it" Von Ahn asks "I never would have expected it" But he was expecting to make a difference with his app The map is already showing that he has
