UNESCO calls for international help to save cultural sites damaged by floods

“I am appalled by the tragedy currently affecting much of Europe, particularly by the heavy loss of human lives and great human suffering incurred,” UNESCO Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura said in a statement released Friday. “I pledge that we will do all within our power to help preserve the region’s damaged treasures, which are vital to the memory of humanity and to the identity of the numerous communities rooting in the region.”Mr. Matsuura said that while UNESCO and its World Heritage Centre would lend all the technical and financial assistance within its means to help restore cultural heritage damaged by the floods, its financial means were limited.”We hope that the international community will extend its assistance to the countries affected for the rehabilitation of their heritage and that it will work in consultation with UNESCO where sites inscribed on the World Heritage List are concerned,” he said.Of particular concern to the Organization was the damage caused to the historic centres of Prague and Cesky Krumlov, in the Czech Republic, as well as those in Vienna and Salzburg, Austria, Mr. Matsuura said. Other damaged sites include those in the cities of Dessau and Dresden, both in Germany. read more

Annan says UN has often failed to deliver on protecting and promoting

In an address at the Time Warner Centre in New York to mark International Human Rights Day, which is being staged on Sunday, the outgoing Secretary-General said he had tried to make human rights central to all of the world body’s work during his 10 years at the helm.“But I’m not sure how far I have succeeded, or how much nearer we are to bringing the reality of the UN in line with my vision of human rights as its ‘third pillar,’ on a par with development and peace and security,” he said.Despite the adoption by leaders attending last year’s World Summit of the doctrine of a “responsibility to protect” endangered civilians, and the lessons learned from the disasters of Rwanda and Bosnia during the 1990s, he said “reports still pour in of villages being destroyed by the hundred and of brutal treatment of civilians” across the war-torn Sudanese region of Darfur.“How can an international community which claims to uphold human rights allow this horror to continue?” he asked. “There is more than enough blame to go around. It can be shared among those who value abstract notions of sovereignty more than the lives of real families, those whose reflex of solidarity puts them on the side of governments and not of peoples, and those who fear that action to stop the slaughter would jeopardize their commercial interests.”Mr. Annan also criticized those governments that have tried to depict the principle of responsibility to protect as an imperialist conspiracy against developing countries.“This is utterly false. We must do better. We must develop the responsibility to protect into a powerful international norm that is not only quoted but put into practice, whenever and wherever it is needed.”He urged civil society groups, human rights defenders and individuals to each play their part to ensure that governments and the UN are held to account for their promises on rights.Aside from giving real meaning to “responsibility to protect,” there must be an end to impunity, he said, citing Bosnian Serb leaders Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic and the leaders of the rebel Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) in Uganda as examples of war criminals still at large.But the Secretary-General noted there has been some progress in this area, particularly in the creation of the International Criminal Court (ICC), the work of the UN war crimes tribunals for Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia, and the hybrid tribunals in Sierra Leone and Cambodia.Mr. Annan added that “we need an anti-terrorism strategy that does not merely pay lip service to the defence of human rights, but is built on it,” adding that States which violate human rights in fighting terrorism lose the moral high ground.“That is why secret prisons have no place in our struggle against terrorism, and why all places where terrorism suspects are detained must be accessible to the International Committee of the Red Cross.”He concluded by saying the international community must move beyond “grand statements of principle… [and] work to make human rights a reality in each country.”Mr. Annan on Monday will travel to the Truman Museum and Library at Independence, Missouri, to pay homage to the memory of one of the UN’s founders and to deliver his last speech as Secretary-General to an American audience, a spokesman announced.“He will spell out five lessons derived from his 10-year experience at the helm of this organization and challenge American leaders of today and tomorrow to live up to Truman’s example of enlightened leadership in a multilateral system,” Stephane Dujarric said. read more

Househunter fell 30ft down a well after estate agent failed to tell

The agent remained inside the house while the Drivers walked to the bottom of the garden In Malmesbury, Wilts.Mrs Driver took one step off the garden path onto a piece of board which collapsed and she fell 30 feet down the well, a court heard.Strakers (Holdings) Ltd pleaded guilty to breaching Health and Safety at Work Act by failing to discharge a general health and safety duty to a person other than an employee. The firm was fined £200,000.She was submerged in water at the bottom of the well but was able to stay afloat with the help of a hosepipe fed down to her by neighbours.It was more than an hour before she was rescued from the well by the Fire Service.An HSE investigation concluded that Strakers had failed to assess the risks to the public and that no health and safety management system had been in place.HSE Inspector Matt Tyler told the judge that three days before the open house event Strakers had been informed by an earlier prospective buyer of the existence of the well under the piece of board yet no action had been taken.He added that the house was part of the estate of a woman who had died and there was therefore no-one who knew the property well to ask about possible risks.Strakers, he said, had no systems in place for risk assessment in the case of properties that were part of a deceased person’s estate and serious risks such as asbestos or electrical safety could neither be identified nor controlled.He said that when Strakers had been informed of the existence of the well, one of their employees, Tim Peters, had visited the house, looked at the wooden board and assumed that the well underneath would be covered by a metal grill.Mr Peters did not lift the board to check for himself, Mr Tyler said.Andrew McLaughlin, counsel representing Strakers, told the judge that the company was sorry Mrs Driver had fallen down the well and accepted that Mr Peter’s inspection on April 19 should have been more thorough than it was.He maintained, however, that the company’s culpability for the incident was low.Judge Simon Cooper said he found both Strakers’ culpability and the risk of harm to be high.He said: “As a result of the breach a number of people were exposed to very significant harm.” A househunter fell 30ft down a well and clung to a hosepipe for an hour after an estate agent failed to tell her about a hole in the garden, a court heard.Lucy Driver and her husband James had gone to an open house viewing organised by agents Strakers on April 23 last year.Mr and Mrs Driver had been encouraged by the agent at the house to have a good look round, a court heard.center_img As a result of the breach a number of people were exposed to very significant harmJudge Simon Cooperlast_img read more

Square Enix Cafe Opens with Final Fantasy XV Goods Galore

first_imgStay on target New ‘Final Fantasy VII’ Remake Trailer Puts Us on Cloud Nine‘Final Fantasy XIV’ and ‘Masters of Doom’ Are Yo… All hail Square Enix, bringer of awesome games and now, food and drink.This month, the official gigantic Square Enix Cafe opened in the geek paradise of Akihabara. Although they already have a smaller cafe called Artnia which is attached to their headquarters, this mecca for geeks is a much flashier version of that cafe, with themes that will change with Square Enix’s hottest game debuts.Right now, Final Fantasy XV is the hot topic of the year, with the cafe adorned with images from the soon to be released game, and special menu items that feature food that appears in the game, anime, or movie, like the banana pound cake, which was featured in Ignis’ episode of the FFXV anime series.The regular food at the cafe features a large array of savory and sweet items, not necessarily themed from any game, but they look ridiculously delish. But don’t forget dessert! Check out this Gaia’s Wrath Mont Blanc, which can be yours for the low price of 900 yen (~$9USD).Hajime Tabata, the director of FFXV even got in on the fun at the cafe, appearing for photos and interviews last week.The restaurant is located directly across the street from the JR Akihabara train station, on the first floor of the Yodobashi Camera electronics department store, making it a holy pilgrimage for any gaming fan who is in the area.I’ll have the vodka martini Phoenix Down, please.The restaurant also features an electronic tablet ordering system, so if you’re fuzzy on your Japanese skills, you can avoid the awkwardness of ordering by just clicking on pictures and selecting their English language menu. Hooray!Anticipating hordes of geeks to descend upon them, the cafe has 90-minute seating slots that you can reserve in advance online, or go to the cafe in person to see if there are any left for the day. But if you’re not in town for long, we recommend you don’t roll those dice, since fans have been flocking to the cafe and filling up the time slots since its grand opening on October 1st.Inside the cafe, you can enjoy the sweet sounds of Final Fantasy background music while you dine, and of course, load up on swag at the two gift shops located inside. The shops feature merchandise from FFXV as well as Square Enix’s other beloved series.You can get news from the cafe via their official website, as well as their Twitter!last_img read more

HPCL BPCL IOC shares gain on BSE after brokerage estimates further upside

first_imgShare prices of state-run companies gained on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) in early trade on Monday after a brokerage said that the prices of the firms are poised for further upside from their current levels in view of better prospects.HPCL shares were trading at Rs. 1,288 apiece, up 2.46 percent from their Friday close at around 10.20 a.m. on the BSE after hitting a new 52-week high of Rs.1,298.90.Read: HPCL shareholders land windfall with 2:1 bonus issueBPCL was up 3.17 percent at Rs. 604.45 while IOC was trading with a modest gain of about 1 percent at Rs. 580.65, after touching a 52-week high of Rs. 588.50 during the day.”Despite the very strong rally over the past two months (HP +35%, IOC +32%, BP +17%, vs Sensex +7%), we still think valuations are undemanding and scope remains for further re-rating. We think OMCs will continue to outshine the broader market, thus we remain positive on OMCs,” Nomura Global Market Research said in a note on Aug. 5.”The recent decision to raise subsidised kerosene (25p/L) and LPG prices (INR2/cyl) nominally (but monthly) has further boosted sentiment,” the brokerage added.HDFC Securities had also made optimistic projections for state-run oil marketing companies (OMCs) in a note last month. “The OMC story remains intact till crude is below US$ 55/bbl. Sustainable profits will lead to further rerating,” it said in its July 22 analysis.The dominant position enjoyed by HPCL, BPCL and IOC in fuel retailing won’t be affected by the expansion of private retail outlets by Essar Oil and Reliance Industries, the HDFC Securities analysis said.Nomura also estimated improvement in operating margins and higher revenues for the three companies, HPCL, BPCL and IOC.The BSE Sensex was trading at 28,145, up 66 points from its previous close, at around 10.41 a.m. Top index gainers included Cipla, Reliance, State Bank of India and Dr Reddy’s Labs. In other news, the GST Bill will be tabled in the Lok Sabha on Monday to ratify the amendments made by members when the legislation was passed by the Rajya Sabha last week.last_img read more

9 Australians awarded for Thai cave rescue

first_img.Nine Australians involved in rescuing 12 boys and their soccer coach from a flooded cave in Thailand were awarded bravery medals on Tuesday for putting their lives in danger during the treacherous ordeal.Anesthetist Richard Harris and his dive buddy Craig Challen, a retired veterinarian, were awarded the Star of Courage, the second highest civilian bravery decoration in the Australian honours system after the Cross of Valor, Governor-General Peter Cosgrave said in a statement.Six police and a navy diver received the lesser Bravery Medal.Harris and Challen, both 53-year-old experience cave divers, had displayed conspicuous bravery in the operation that resulted in all 13 members of a soccer team being rescued, their citations said.The team entered the cave on June 23, but flooding quickly blocked the exit and they had to retreat further inside the cave. Heavy rains raised water levels and thwarted the initial searches before two British divers on July 2 found the group huddled on a dry patch of ground, safe but hungry.Harris and Challen arrived at the cave on July 6 and reached the team the next day.”Harris conducted initial medical assessments and was able to provide information to the awaiting authorities regarding the safest extraction methods,” the citations said.”The rescue mission was hazardous, with poor or zero visibility, debris and constrictive passageways, variable air quality, and made more difficult with further rainfalls predicted,” they added.Harris sedated the boys and coach before they were taken out by divers over three days, concluding 10 July.Challen helped remove the team’s masks and wetsuits as the boys and coach were stretchered through dry places then he prepared them for their next dive through flooded sections of the cave, his citation said.The other seven Australian divers displayed considerable bravery throughout the cave system helping move the team to the entrance, their citations said.”The threat of sudden flooding, movement of debris and deterioration of air quality posed continuous, potentially fatal hazards to all personnel in the cave system,” their citations said.The dangers were brought home by one death during the long rescue operation, former Thai navy SEAL Saman Gunan, who died while replenishing supplies inside the cave.The 12 boys and coach recovered for a week in a hospital.Challen told a reporter in his hometown of Perth that he had not expected the rescue to be such as success.”It was absolutely life and death. We didn’t expect to be getting 13 people out of there alive,” Challen told News Corp.Prime minister Malcolm Turnbull had backed the fast-tracking of official recognition for the Australians’ bravery.”It’s one of the most heroic and inspiring episodes of our time,” Turnbull said a day after the rescue was completed.last_img read more

RuPauls Drag Race star Willam responds to angry fans after transphobic comments

first_imgDrag Race star calls out fan who stole his dress after a ru-vealINTERVIEW: Courtney Act unpacks Drag Race’s trans problem – ‘Ru’s from a different era’Drag Race queens respond to RuPaul’s comments on trans performersPINK NEWS- eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) “I feel bad about how I made people feel about it, and this is my official apology.”On the comments, Willam said: “I was trying to explain what I thought. My grandma had a double mastectomy, and my mom said, boobs don’t make a woman.“In my head I said, ‘just because you don’t have tits doesn’t mean you’re a man’, because my grandma didn’t have tits. People don’t see all the wheels that are going in my head, how slowly or how poorly they’re operating.“I need to apologise for it, because I didn’t say everything I was thinking and it hurt people. I’m sad that my not knowing these things made my friends feel [hurt] justifiably, and made people I don’t even know not like me.“I have to be more responsible to my words.”Willam’s comments had originally sparked anger from fans of Drag Race, which has had a number of transgender contestants.On the Reddit, one fan wrote: “christ, as a trans man this is genuinely disappointing and hurtful.”Another added: “I really don’t get gays being transphobic. there’s already soooo much negativity from outside the community, why just spew even more inside the community at people who’ve had similar experiences?”Others praised Courtney Act for her calm and diplomatic answers, with one fan adding: “Courtney, if you’re one of the queens who occasionally shows up on reddit, thanks so much!”Next: Did Hillary Clinton just reference RuPaul’s Drag Race? During one segment on the Fullscreen show, Willam and fellow drag queen Courtney Act answered a question from a viewer thinking of dating a trans man.Willam referenced the killing of Brandon Teena, a trans man who was brutally raped and murdered in Nebraska in 1993,The drag artist trivialised Brandon’s murder, suggesting it was his fault because “he bamboozled the girl… he was trans but he could have told them.”They added: “just because you cut your titties off and take testosterone, that doesn’t change your chromosomes.”The comments led to a backlash from horrified fans as well as from Courtney, who reacted with shock and repeatedly challenged William.But in a follow-up video, Belli apologises for the “terrible” remarks.The drag star says: “I feel like I didn’t know stuff.“I’m glad there are people out there asking why I made this comment instead of just hating me, because I’m friends with so many trans people.“Courtney told me that gender is different than sex, which I’m trying to understand… I’m getting it, I’m learning, I didn’t know, and I hope my education catches up with the evolution of thought.center_img Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… RuPaul’s Drag Race star Willam Belli has responded to critics after making transphobic comments in an online TV show.Fans reacted with anger earlier this week after comments that the drag artist, who appeared on the fourth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, made on live TV show ‘Suck Less’.last_img read more

France hops off Eurail Select Pass

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: N.J Travellers will need to purchase separate rail passes into France from next year after it was announced the country would no longer be included in the Eurail Select Pass.In 2013, the company said France would no longer be included in its pass that provides unlimited travel through three, four or five adjoining European countries, however, will still be covered on the Eurail Global Pass, Eurail two-country Passes and the France Rail Pass.Rail Plus national sales and marketing manager Greg McCallum said the decision by French rail operator SNCF was likely to create a number of scenarios for travellers with itineraries that include France.“If for instance passengers want to travel to France and they hold a Eurail Select Pass covering bordering countries, they can purchase a France Rail Pass or point-to-point tickets,” Mr McCallum said. “Ultimately every itinerary is different, however, travel agents can rest assured that Rail Plus, given its specialist, dedicated structure, has a team of highly-skilled consultants who will use their expertise and knowledge to help tailor the most appropriate and cost-effective solution for your clients.”Travel agents are still able to book France on the Eurail Select Pass until midnight 27 December 2012.Select Passes must also be validated within six months of purchase, which means a pass sold on 27 December 2012 could be validated on 26 June 2013, with the pass then expiring on 25 August 2013.last_img read more

Sydney Hotel rates jump as occupancy squeeze hits

first_imgSydney Hotel rates jump as occupancy squeeze hitsTravellers will face stiffer hotel bills in Sydney this year with rates surging by 8.7% in the first quarter of 2017.Analysis from 4th Dimension, Flight Centre Travel Group’s (FCTG) business travel consulting division, showed average nightly rates had risen to AUD$270 with occupancy levels topping out at more than 90%. The figures represented the highest increase in the Sydney accommodation market since 1996.Corporate Traveller General Manager Jess Anscombe said business travellers were especially vulnerable to the fluctuations with the uptick having strong implications for companies that regularly need accommodation in Sydney.
“Sydney is now one of the highest occupied accommodation markets in the world. It even outranks New York, London and Hong Kong,” she said.“As the number one business hub in Australia, travellers need to start booking accommodation as early as they possibly can to avoid being caught in the highest rate buckets.“Companies with high volume requirements should look to consolidate with a small number of preferred hotels and lock in negotiated rates.“For those with lower booking frequency, moving to a best rate of the day purchasing strategy will be a great help. While you may not always be kicking back in luxury, it’s a great insulator against higher rates.”The analysis cited increases in domestic and international business travellers, a boom in tourism and leisure travel activity, higher demand for Sydney’s 5-star hotels due to the weaker Australian dollar and flat supply as the key factors for the surge in demand.Ms Anscombe said selecting properties outside the CBD, like in the Sydney Airport precinct, was also a good tactic for maintaining convenience and accessing affordable rates.“Airport hotels can often be up to 35 per cent lower, and 50 per cent lower in some cases, than CBD properties,” she said.“Linking your accommodation spending to frequent flyer points earning is also a great way to help alleviate the burden of a Sydney business trip.”About Corporate TravellerCorporate Traveller has been a leading supplier of business travel solutions for more than 20 years and services more than 6,500 clients throughout Australia.

Derrick Hall satisfied with Dbacks buying and se

first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Before there were expectations of the team winning division titles and making deep postseason runs, Wilson made a commit to remain a part of the team’s long-term solution.In an age where the sports industry is built on championship rings and free agency money, that level of loyalty is almost unheard of. Yet the five-time Pro Bowler never wavered in his passion for the Arizona Cardinals.Even after a 2011 season in which he made yet another trip to Hawaii (despite playing the entire year with a torn biceps injury), Wilson agreed to restructure his contract (which reduced his base salary for this season) during training camp, because he wanted to do what was in the best interest of the team.But as the first 15 games of the 2012 campaign have indicated, the 33-year-old’s days in the Valley may be numbered. In the team’s Week 11 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, defensive coordinator Ray Horton opted to use Rashad Johnson in nickel packages instead of Wilson. It’s a trend that has continued more and more over the past five weeks.When asked whether he got emotional or nostalgic during the team’s home finale Sunday, Wilson suggested his mindset was on the Bears not on a potential Arizona departure. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories center_img If Sunday’s game at University of Phoenix Stadium was safety Adrian Wilson’s last chance to play in front of Cardinals fans, well, it was an unceremoniously ending (28-13 loss to the Chicago Bears) to a wonderful 12-year run.Since coming to the Valley in 2001, the former third-round pick out of North Carolina State has been the heart and soul of the Cardinals’ defense. And even before the team reached its only Super Bowl during the 2008 season, Wilson remained true to the organization through some really lean years (six consecutive losing seasons from 2001-2006). – / 30 “You know I hadn’t thought about [the game being my last in Arizona] at all, until you guys brought it up,” Wilson told media members following Sunday’s defeat. “If they make a decision, I’m pretty sure it’s going to be quick.”If the team decides to part ways with Wilson, they will being so with one of the most beloved members of the organization over the past decade. And also one of the most accomplished.In the team’s 38-10 victory over the Detroit Lions in Week 15, Wilson became just the sixth player in NFL history to record 25 interceptions and 25 sacks for a career, joining Ray Lewis, Rodney Harrison, Ronde Barber, William Thomas and Brian Dawkins.However, as Sunday’s game illustrated (one solo tackle), Wilson’s best days may be behind him. Yet for theArizona’s strong safety, the thought of leaving the only franchise and city he’s ever known isn’t a comforting one, even if it means going to a team with a brighter future.As he made sure to remind everyone Sunday, the move would be harder on his family than it would be for him.“What goes through my mind is having to move my family, having to find my kids another school, will they like the school,” said Wilson, who has three children ages 3, 8 and 10. “That’s what goes through my mind [when talking about a potential move], it’s my family. I can adjust.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelolast_img read more
