Black Eyed Peas and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon aid UN tsunami relief

Following in the footsteps of football players from the United States and an Australian rugby star, will.i.am of the famed US hip-hop group Black Eyed Peas and Malaysian movie star Michelle Yeoh have become the latest celebrities to aid the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) in its emergency tsunami relief operations.The two, along with Nori Abdullah, daughter of the Prime Minister of Malaysia, and Malaysia’s Special Envoy for Tsunami Relief Razali Ismail, made a one-day visit to Aceh, Indonesia, the area worst hit by December’s tsunami for the Force of Nature Foundation (FON), a Malaysia-based non-profit relief organization.The delegation took part in a WFP distribution of fortified biscuits at Tanjung Selamat Primary School in the provincial capital Banda Aceh, where 200 children, some of them tsunami orphans, performed a traditional Acehnese dance and sang a song about the tragedy in an area where virtually every family lost relatives in the disaster that killed more than 200,000 people in a dozen Indian Ocean countries.“I am a Force of Nature,” shouted the schoolchildren after musical coaching by Ms. Yeoh, star of the acclaimed film “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” and will.i.am. The children also sang the Indonesian version of “Happy Birthday” to will.i.am, who turned 30 yesterday.“We are happy with the visit of public figures who can bring worldwide attention to the overwhelming needs of this region,” WFP Country Director Mohamed Saleheen said. “As they see for themselves the scale of the devastation, they will be able to help us to spread this message to the world.”Last month former Australian rugby captain Nick Farr-Jones and New York Giants quarterback Kurt Warner and wide receiver Amani Toomer visited Aceh. read more

Officials report progress in talks at UN climate change conference

Progress has been made on a number of issues at a United Nations conference in Nairobi aimed at forging responses to global warming, including efforts to promote projects in developing countries that will help people adapt to threats posed by the phenomenon, the head of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) said today.Agreement was reached today on an Adaptation Fund for these projects, according to UNFCCC Executive Secretary Yvo de Boer, and agreement is likely on a five-year workplan on adaptation. Countries have also reached an agreement to promote technology transfer to developing countries. “The Adaptation Fund is crucial to developing countries,” Mr. de Boer said, “because it allows them to really begin working on activities to adapt to climate change. This is a very encouraging step forward, especially for developing countries.”The Adaptation Fund, Mr. de Boer said, will receive a share of the proceeds from the Clean Development Mechanism as well as voluntary contributions. “The number of projects that are launched under the Clean Development Mechanism will determine how much is going into the Fund.” The Clean Development Mechanism allows industrialized countries that are members of the Kyoto Protocol to invest in sustainable development projects in developing countries.Mr. de Boer said there were still a number of unresolved issues at the conference that will be left for the ministers that will be attending the high-level part of the meeting that starts tomorrow.Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki, President of the Swiss Confederation Moritz Leuenberger and UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan will address the more than 100 ministers who are expected to attend.One issue that remains unresolved concerns commitments by industrialized countries for the period after the 2012 expiration of the Kyoto Protocol, which contains binding targets for emissions. While an agreement on the issue is not expected at the Nairobi conference, countries will need to resolve a plan on how they will address the matter so that there is no gap between Kyoto and the commitment period.Mr. de Boer has said that from the Kyoto experience, in takes two years to negotiate a pact and two years for ratification, so that talks on a new set of commitments should begin in 2007 or 2008 at the latest. read more

Iraq UN delivers livesaving medicines and medical supplies inside Mosul

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the agency and the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) delivered medicines and supplies to treat both trauma injuries as well as antibiotics, medication for chronic conditions and reproductive health items. The agency also reported that a primary health care centre, managed by the Ninewa Directorate of Health, is providing urgent medical services for more than 50,000 people in east Mosul but owing to limited health services in the area, the health centre is also serving nine other neighbouring suburbs with a total population of almost 150,000 people. The health centre is served by seven doctors, including internal medicine specialists, general surgeons, paediatricians and an anaesthesiologist – but almost all work without pay, as volunteers. They see up to a thousand patients a day and about 10-15 have mortar shell injures. People also require treatment for chronic diseases such diabetes, heart conditions, asthma and epilepsy. The centre, however, faces considerable challenges, including water, fuel and power shortage and has been forced to close temporarily on several occasions over the past few weeks as a result of mortar shelling, said WHO. The UN health agency has also provide ambulances to transport those injured to the nearest supported trauma stabilization point in eastern Mosul, before being taken to hospitals in Erbil (at least two hours away). read more

La CNIL sinsurge contre le spam par SMS

Cette pratique à l’insu des consommateurs a duré quelques années puisque les premières plaintes des consommateurs à ce sujet datent de 2009. Au total, ce sont des centaines de milliers de SMS qui étaient envoyés chaque mois, en toute illégalité puisque “l’envoi de publicité commerciale par voie électronique (mail, fax, SMS…) ne peut intervenir sans accord préalable du destinataire et ce, de manière explicite” a rappelé la CNIL.

Apocalypse Now Is Finally Getting Turned Into a Video Game

first_img It may have been a long time coming, but Apocalypse Now will be getting turned into a video game. A team of industry veterans launched a Kickstarter campaign today to fund the three-year-long, $1 million project. This game is being created with the blessing of the film’s director, Francis Ford Coppola, and with help from his production company, American Zoetrope.“Forty years ago, I set out to make a personal art picture that could hopefully influence generations of viewers for years to come,” said Coppola. “Today, I’m joined by new daredevils, a team who want to make an interactive version of Apocalypse Now, where you are Captain Benjamin Willard amidst the harsh backdrop of the Vietnam War. I’ve been watching video games grow into a meaningful way to tell stories, and I’m excited to explore the possibilities for Apocalypse Now for a new platform and a new generation.”Although this role-playing game is based on the story of the movie, players will have the option to make different choices and alter the narrative. Each one of these choices will have consequences that may affect their journey in unforeseen ways. Despite being based on a known story, each player will have an entirely different experience during their playthrough. Even with all of the changes players can make, the game will maintain the tone and themes of the original Apocalypse Now.“We will create a game that challenges what an interactive experience can be; just as the original motion picture challenged the concept of cinema,” said game director, Montgomery Markland. “We are making a game that we are excited to play. We will deliver a greater variety of experience and interaction than is currently available within the relatively static industry.”Apocalypse Now features a team of developers who have worked on some of the industry’s most notable games. This includes: Rob Auten, who was a lead writer for Gears of War, Battlefield, and Far Cry; Lawrence Liberty, who executive produced and directed games like Fallout: New Vegas, The Witcher, and DC Universe Online. And Montgomery Markland, who was the lead producer on two successful crowdfunded games: Wasteland 2 and Torment: Tides of Numenera. According to the press release, more developers will be announced in the future.Those who back the game on Kickstarter will be treated to a host of exclusive rewards. These include in-game options and props from the actual movie. Among the props is Col. Kilgore’s “Airmobile” surfboard and Col. Kilgore’s death cards. Other rewards include early access to pre-release versions of the game and limited edition Apocalypse Now-themed merchandise. Backers will even get to play with the development team. More rewards will be announced in the future.Apocalypse Now is set to launch sometime in 2020, with early access coming in 2019 to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the film.

Homegrown and hydroponic Veggies are St Pauls new subsistence food

first_imgSt. Paul’s greenhouse is named after an elder. It’s called Ludy’s Qalgadam Tagadaa, or Ludy’s Fresh Foods. (Zoë Sobel, Alaska’s Energy Desk – Unalaska)St. Paul’s greenhouse isn’t what you’d imagine. There’s no big glass structure. All the windows are covered from the inside. It’s underneath the city’s grocery store on the first floor of the building.Listen Now It’s hydroponic. Blue and red LED lights hang suspended above the plants. Pumps fill the room with white noise.“Let’s try to find a big one,” greenhouse manager Dallas Roberts said.He dropped by on a recent afternoon to harvest six heads of lettuce.“These have been growing for close to a month or month and a half,” Rpberts said. “They’re fantastic.”The 19-year-old grew up on the island. He said the availability of fresh produce is a big deal in St. Paul. There’s only one shelf for it at the grocery store.Bare shelves at St. Paul’s grocery store. (Photo courtesy of Lauren Divine)Lauren Divine is the co-director of the tribe’s Environmental Conservation Office (ECO). She said problems with cargo shipping mean that by the time vegetables hit the shelves, they’re already rotten.“We ran out of carrots, potatoes, and onions,” Divine said. “Those are cold-cellar, long-storage type vegetables. They were spoiling and going bad. The store had to throw them away.”St. Paul’s greenhouse was built with more than $400,000 in federal grant money. The goal is to produce high-quality, affordable food for the community. At first, the idea was to build a traditional all-glass greenhouse.But when Divine joined the project, she scrapped those plans because she didn’t think it was sustainable.A box greenhouse kit would have to be barged in and because St. Paul is volcanic, the same would be true for fertilizer and topsoil.“It took a lot to change everyone’s minds from thinking they would see this glass building to coming into a hydroponics operation and seeing the lettuce grow without soil in this very different, almost alien way,” Divine said.The cost of running the hydroponic greenhouse is so low that they’re giving away the produce. The electric and water costs are covered by the Aleut Community of St. Paul tribal government.Plants can grow inside the greenhouse year-round. Right now, they’re producing about 60 heads of lettuce a week. Plus, there’s tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, cilantro, and more. There’s even an outdoor garden with potatoes and kale.Kids in St. Paul sample lettuce. (Photo courtesy of Lauren Divine)Divine said kids are some of the biggest advocates for the greenhouse. They even ask their parents to get lettuce.“When you can sit down and have a meal with rutabaga, seal, potatoes, and carrots — all coming from St. Paul — it really shifts their view of subsistence. It can be all the food that we grow,” Divine said. “I can grow this at my house, or I can come down to the garden and harvest it. It’s from here and it’s our food.”But there have been problems. The heat in the greenhouse is provided by the grocery store above. When the business adjusts the temperature, it can kill the crops.Still, demand for the produce is so strong that Divine plans to expand. She has her eyes on a new warehouse space that could fit a greenhouse twice the size of the current one. That may allow ECO to sell extra produce to Trident — the local fish processing plant — for its salad bar.For now, the greenhouse staff gives away the vegetables. They can donate to the food bank and share with elders.Remember those six heads of lettuce Dallas Roberts cut? A few minutes after he harvests them, he delivers them to the local tavern.“It’s the best that we’ve got,” Roberts said.The cooks will use the lettuce for tomorrow’s dinner: Indian tacos.last_img read more

Rape case can be filed anywhere HC

first_imgHigh CourtThe High Court has issued a ruling that any case relating to rape, sexual harassment and similar incidents can be filed with any police station, no matter whether the incident takes place under its jurisdiction.The HC on Sunday asked the officers-in-charge of all the police stations across the country to record such cases without any delay.The court also instructed the authorities concerned to compulsorily send samples of such incidents to a forensic laboratory within 48 hours of filing of a case for DNA test.An HC bench of justice Farah Mahbub and justice Kazi Izharul Akanda passed the order in the full verdict on a writ petition filed earlier by five human right organisations.The writ was filed following the rape of a Garo girl on 21 May 2015. The girl was picked up from the city’s Kuril area and raped in a running car.The victim and her family faced immense harassment while filing a case over the incident.At 4:00am that night, the victims went to Turag police station where the police refused to record any case as the incident took place in different areas. They then went to Gulshan police station around 5:00am where too the police declined to record a diary.Finally, they went to the Bhatara police station around 6:30am where the officer-in-charge (OC) was absent.They had to wait until 9:30am when the OC came and finally the case was registered around 12:30pm. The victim was sent to a hospital for medical test a day later.Upon hearing the writ, the court issued a rule on 25 May 2015 and passed its order on 18 February 2016.The full text of the verdict was released on 22 April last, almost two years after the short verdict.The HC issued an 18-point directive on investigation into rape incidents and filing cases over those, asking for compying with those until a specific law is formulated in this regard.As per the directives, officers-in-charge of the police stations must record complaints of a rape victim, no matter wherever the incident takes place.A server will have to set up immediately where victims can file their complaints and there will have to be a provision of taking legal actions against members of the police if they make delay in recording cases without any reason.Every the police station must keep a policewoman who will take the victim for health check-up and each police station must make a list of female social workers who will provide the victims with mental help and support.The court directed the ministries of home, women and children affairs, and law, and the inspector general of police (IGP) to take steps for formulating a policy based on its recommendations, directives and observations.last_img read more

Argentine submarine wreck found after a year

first_imgHandout picture released by Argentina`s Navy press office on 17 November 2018, showing part of the wreckage of the ARA San Juan submarine located one year after it vanished into the depths of the Atlantic Ocean. Photo: AFPThe crushed wreck of an Argentine submarine has been located one year after it vanished into the depths of the Atlantic Ocean with 44 crew members, in the country’s worst naval disaster in decades.Experts say raising the ARA San Juan submarine would be an enormous undertaking costing a billion dollars or more. Defense minister Oscar Aguad said Argentina had “no means” to do so.The navy located at the submarine at a depth of more than 800 meters (2,600 feet), the navy tweeted, confirming the vessel had imploded.Relatives of the dead sailors were seen hugging each other, holding their heads in despair and crying inconsolably.The Seabed Constructor, a ship owned by US search firm Ocean Infinity, made the discovery Friday, one day after the first anniversary of the disappearance.The ship had set out in September in the latest attempt to find the San Juan, whose disappearance cost the navy’s top officer his job.The navy lost contact with the submarine on 15 November 2017, about 450 kilometers (280 miles) from the coast while it was traveling northward from Ushuaia, at Argentina’s southern tip.Admiral Jose Villan, the navy’s new top commander, said that the rough terrain on the ocean floor made it difficult for search vessels, which had already trawled the site, to find the sub.Pieces that were 11, 13 and 30 meters long were spotted in a “moon-like zone with craters and canyons,” said Navy Captain Enrique Balbi, adding that the hull had been “crushed inwards.”Aguad met earlier with family members to show photos taken by an underwater robot. They showed a propeller, the sub’s bow with torpedo-launching tubes and an upper section of the vessel lying on the ocean floor.”We are all destroyed here,” said Yolanda Mendiola, the mother of crewman Leandro Cisneros, 28.’Never forget'”I still had hopes that they could be alive,” Luis Niz, the father of a missing sailor, told reporters, even though president Mauricio Macri’s government had declared two weeks after the sub’s disappearance that there could be no survivors.A small group of family members protested outside the naval base Saturday, holding a banner emblazoned with the number “44” — for the lost crew members.Another banner declared, “44 Hearts of Steel — Never Forget!”Lawyer Sonia Krescher questioned the timing of the sub’s discovery, saying it was “weird” coming after the one-year anniversary of its loss.”We are going to ask them to refloat it,” she said. “We need to see the bodies and know what happened.”Cecila Kaufmann, who lost her husband Luis Leiva, added: “now that they’ve found it, they need to give us back our loved ones.”The discovery came the day after a somber ceremony, attended by Macri, at the San Juan’s Mar del Plata base.Macri said the “whole truth” about what happened can now be examined. But he made no reference to whether there would be an attempt to raise the wreck.The Seabed Constructor made its discovery before leaving for maintenance in South Africa. Searchers decided to check an area that bad weather had previously prevented them from examining.Massive search operationEquipped with cameras that can submerge 6,000 meters below the surface, the vessel was set to receive a $7.5 million reward for finding the missing sub.Ocean Infinity was also assigned the task of hunting for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, which vanished without trace in March 2014 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.Experts say the submarine would have been crushed by water pressure once it dropped below about 600 meters. They believe that water seeped inside through a defective snorkel valve, triggering the tragedy.The San Juan’s loss was the first major tragedy to hit Argentina’s navy since the Falklands War against Britain in 1982.Argentina’s navy has been criticized for its clumsy handling of the case since first reporting the San Juan — one of the country’s three submarines — was overdue at Mar del Plata on 16 November 2017.It took naval officials days to acknowledge that the old, German-built submarine had reported a problem with its batteries in its final communication.And it took them 10 days to say there had been an explosion on board, which experts said was likely linked to the battery problem.An air and sea search involved 13 countries followed.Argentina has spent more than $25 million in its search operation.last_img

Go back to the enewsletter Commercial spaceflights

first_imgGo back to the enewsletterCommercial spaceflights lifting from Europe are in the pipeline, after Virgin Galactic inked a framework agreement with Italian fellow space companies, Sitadel and ALTEC.The arrangement follows two years of talks between the parties, government regulatory analysis, studies on potential operations and market assessment. Virgin Galactic confirmed it’s operational headquarters remains at Spaceport America in New Mexico, the world’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport.Virgin Galactic’s Spaceport in New Mexico, USAThe deal with ALTEC (Aerospace Logistics Technology Engineering Company), a public-private company owned by the Italian Space Agency and Thales Alenia Space, comes after it signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Virgin Galactic two years ago.In mid 2017 the U.S. Department of State approved an agreement to develop a plan that would eventually see the construction of an Italian spaceport, which will provide the infrastructure for future Virgin Galactic suborbital flights. Earlier this year, after “in-depth analysis of potential locations,” the Italian aviation authority ENAC designated the Taranto-Grottaglie Airport as the future home of “horizontally-launched spaceflights” in Italy.Virgin Galactic’s WhiteKnightTwoSitael, the largest privately-owned space company in Italy with headquarters in the Puglia region, is partnering with Altec and Virgin Galactic in order to define the framework that will lead the spaceflight operations from Grottaglie Spaceport.The agreement envisions a dedicated space vehicle system, built by Virgin Galactic’s sister enterprise The Spaceship Company, being positioned at the future Grottaglie Spaceport.The space vehicle would be utilised by customers like the Italian Space Agency as a science platform for high-frequency space research, as well as private individuals to experience space.VSS Unity in flightVirgin Founder Sir Richard Branson was on hand to witness the signing of the new alliance.“From the Renaissance to modern space science, Italy has always been a natural home to great innovators and breakthrough ideas which have shaped the human experience. I believe Italy’s vision which has led to this collaboration with our Virgin space companies, will provide a real impetus as we strive to open space for the benefit of life on Earth,” Branson said.This partnership could see Virgin Galactic launch the first person in history into space from Italian soil – and in fact from any European territory. Together, we will help to expand opportunities for science, industry and the millions of people who dream of experiencing space for themselves. Virgin Group Founder, Sir Richard BransonThe agreement comes after two years of business discussions, government regulatory analysis, studies on potential operations and market assessment and the signature was witnessed also by the founder of Virgin Group Sir Richard Branson, the founder of Angel Group Mr. Vito Pertosa, the President of the Italian Space Agency Mr. Roberto Battiston, the Italian Minister Ms. Barbara Lezzi, the President of Apulia Region Mr. Michele Emiliano, the President of the Aeroporti di Puglia Mr. Tiziano Onesti and the Commercial Officer of the U.S. Embassy in Rome Todd Avery.Lead image – the agreement was inked between Nicola Zaccheo, Sitael CEO, Vincenzo Giorgio, Altec CEO, and George Whitesides, Virgin Galactic CEO, at Sitael’s headquarters.
