10 December 2008The Nepalese army has recommended a resumption of its minefield clearance operation, which it conducts with the assistance of the United Nations Mine Action Team, UN spokesperson Michele Montas told reporters today. Five minefields had been cleared in the Himalayan nation this year before the monsoon season forced a five-month break in the demining process, leaving 48 military minefields as well as a number of fields consisting of improvised explosives still to be swept. Mines in Jaalbhanjyang, laid on a steep hillside to protect a strategic telecommunications tower during the decade-long civil war, have already claimed the life of a 10-year-old boy and injured a deminer. Once the minefields have been cleared, 150 local people will be able to use the land for grazing cattle and have access to the local temple, which is next to the tower. “The Nepalese army understands the need to clear the minefields for both humanitarian reasons, and as required by the Comprehensive Peace Agreement and the Agreement on Monitoring the Management of Arms and Armies,” said UN Mine Action Team Programme Manager in Nepal, Stephen Robinson. The army is developing mine clearance skills and expertise, said Mr. Robinson, adding that it can potentially “apply these skills to benefit the international community by deploying as United Nations deminers in other mine-afflicted countries, such as Sudan.” The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is working with the Ministry of Education to include mine risk education into classroom teaching.
He said that as per Article 148 of the constitution, “Parliament shall have full control over public finance.”“In the absence of a legitimate Government, a grave situation has now arisen as there is no legal way to meet public expenditure and obligations of the state from 2019. The constitution does not provide for any alternative arrangements for public finance, even with the intervention of the executive envisaged under the limited circumstances of article 150(3) under which the President can only allocate finances for the first 3 months of a new Parliament. Thus, under the current circumstances, from January 1st 2019 until a new Parliament is convened, the spending power of the state ceases to exist,” he said. Samaraweera said that as the Finance Minister (former), he had made allocations to ensure funding until December 31st 2018, however from January 1st 2019, the country will fall into a crisis. (Colombo Gazette) The Speaker having gone through all legal procedures in Parliament has also declared that as per Article 48(2) of the constitution, the purported Prime Minister and his cabinet are illegal, Samaraweera said. Former Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera says Sri Lanka will need to repay US$ 1 billion in January, 2019.He says the money is part of debt taken by the Mahinda Rajapaksa Government in January 2014. Samaraweera said that just nine days prior to the presentation of the 2019 budget, the Sirisena-Rajapaksa “coup” ousting the legitimate and lawful Prime Minister and cabinet has thrown the country and citizens into an unprecedented crisis.
The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) today announced the launch of an emergency operation to fly critical aid supplies into the Liberian capital of Monrovia, where hundreds of thousands of people are in desperate need of assistance following two weeks of fighting.The first consignment of high energy biscuits for some 4,000 people arrived in the city on Saturday from Sierra Leone, and the agency plans to fly in more than ten times that amount over the next few days.”This is the first time WFP has been able to move food into Monrovia since the latest fighting erupted and [it] will help us to save the lives of thousands of malnourished people,” said Manuel Aranda da Silva, the agency’s Regional Director for West Africa.The 12 tons of nutritious biscuits will be distributed by WFP and its partners to approximately 100,000 of the most vulnerable people, including thousands of displaced who have set up temporary camps close to the airport. Some of the food will also be sent to area hospitals that are critically short of supplies and to camps for internally displaced people in the interior. Those sites have not received any aid since June.”It is an expensive operation but we have no choice,” said Mr. Aranda da Silva. “People are crying out for food and this is the only way we can get aid into the city at the moment.”Before the fighting, WFP had pre-positioned over 10,000 tons of food in Monrovia, including bulgar wheat, maize meal, lentils and vegetable oil. But the agency hasn’t been able to access those stocks since mid-July when rebels launched their third attack on the capital.In announcing the airlift today, WFP urged the warring parties to agree to the establishment of a secure humanitarian corridor across the frontline so that relief supplies can start moving immediately.”The airlift is only a temporary measure since we cannot fly in enough aid to feed everyone,” Mr. Aranda da Silva warned. “The humanitarian corridor is a matter of life and death for tens of thousands of people in Monrovia.”
After speaking with Nepalese Government and military officials, current and former detainees and after examining forensic evidence, the United Nations Commission on Human Rights expert on torture has concluded the police, armed police and the Royal Nepalese Army use torture for such purposes as extracting confessions and obtaining intelligence.At the end of a 10 to 16 September visit to Nepal, at the invitation of the Government, the Commission on Human Rights Special Rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment, Manfred Nowak, said today he received shocking evidence that the Maoist insurgents, who recently declared a ceasefire that he welcomed, also carried out torture and mutilations to extort money, punish non-cooperation and intimidate others.Mr. Nowak expressed hope for a durable solution soon, while acknowledging the dangerous situation prevailing in the country, particularly outside of the capital, Kathmandu.Mr. Novak recognized the Government’s obligation, during the armed conflict, to ensure the security of the country’s inhabitants, but he emphasized that such measures must respect international human rights norms, in particular the absolute prohibition of torture, as contained in the Convention Against Torture that Nepal has ratified.He said the need for the Government to send a clear and unambiguous message against torture and ill-treatment was made clear when he received disturbingly frank admissions by senior police and military officials that torture was acceptable in some instances and was systematically practised.Methods of torture that he came across included beatings with bamboo poles and plastic pipes, kicking with boots, electric shock to the ears, rolling rods over the thighs, jumping on thighs and legs, maintenance of stress positions, being bound to a pole and hanged upside and beaten, especially on the soles of the feet, and prolonged periods of being blindfolded and handcuffed.Again and again, officials would cite the 1996 Torture Compensation Act as an effective deterrent against torture, but it failed to contain a definition of torture in line with the Convention, or to provide for effective remedies, he said. It did not provide for the criminalization of torture or the imposition of commensurate punishments. In addition, since the Act came into force, in only one case to date had victim compensation been paid, despite several decisions to award compensation.The Special Rapporteur said he found that despite constitutional and legal provisions to safeguard the detainee rights, basic requirements were not respected, such as timely access to a lawyer, being brought to a judge within 24 hours of arrest, or getting medical examinations. Detainee registers were poorly kept, if at all.Detention facilities were filthy, overcrowded – sometimes 12 persons in a cell approximately 12 square metres in size – and poorly ventilated, with no provision for leisure activities. “The detention of several 14-year-old boys among adults was seriously disturbing to the Special Rapporteur,” he said.Mr. Nowak, who has been Special Rapporteur since last December, said he would submit a comprehensive written report on the visit to the Commission on Human Rights at its 62nd session next year.

However, planning consultant David Mulcahy of Irish Planning News explained to TheJournal.ie that this can have wide reaching implications.Sandwich boards like these are a no-no without licensing (Image Credit: Shirokazan via Flickr/Creative Commons)Restaurants require a licence to place tables and chairs outside their stores. In Dublin, the premises must serve food which can be eaten on-site as a requirement for this licence to be approved.Even sandwich boards placed on footpaths require a licence under this legislation.However, the law will vary when it comes to placing these items on private property.Read: Parked mobile advertisements require planning permission, says planning board > THE PRACTICE OF setting up temporary advertising on the back of trailer is set to end following a ruling by An Bord Pleanála.The planning board found that even if placed on private property, it still constituted as advertising.This would change the purpose of the land and so planning permission would be required to erect it.If on public property, such as a public road, a licence would be required — and for many other common items, ranging from vending machines to landscape maps indicating directions.A section of the Planning and Development Act states that a licence is required for all of the following:A hoarding, fence or scaffold,An advertisement structure,A cable, wire or pipeline,A telephone kiosk or pedestal,Any other appliance, apparatus or structure, which may be prescribed as requiring a licence under this section.
Genoa boss Ivan Juric expressed delight at his dream debut after ending the perfect Juventus start saying “We pounced at the right moment.”Juric was brought back to replace Davide Ballardini, who was dismissed from the job following a poor run of games“I am back to doing what I love,” said Juric in his Press conference via Football Italia.“I saw positive things today and we have a big margin for improvement. I also liked the first half, as the team showed patience and pounced at the right moment, although we could’ve played with more quality.Lukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.“The lads had the right spirit and we’ve got the foundations to build on this going forward.”Genoa’s position in the table – considering they have a game in hand to play against Milan – was not that bad, so the decision to fire Ballardini was surprising.“It’s going to be very difficult against Udinese, as they are particularly dangerous away from home on the counter. I have confidence and we’ll be working more on self-belief.”
Some of the same incentives that helped convince Banfield Pet Hospital to move its corporate headquarters from Portland to Vancouver may be made available to other businesses.Proposed changes to Vancouver’s city codes target large employers such as Banfield that offer salaries higher than the local median annual wage.Under the proposed city ordinances, business license surcharge fees would be waived and traffic impact fees would be reduced for companies with 200 or more employees that pay higher-than-median salaries.A public hearing will be 7 p.m. Monday at City Hall, 415 W. Sixth St. The incentives are intended to make the city “more competitive in attracting companies that have a large number of employees and high median wages,” City Manager Eric Holmes wrote in a report to the city council.Chad Eiken, the city’s director of community and economic development, told councilors in May that adding incentives to city ordinances would give his staff more tools when negotiating with prospective business owners.The council has had two workshops on the economic development incentives, and at Monday’s meeting the ordinances were approved to be set for public hearing.

The Oculus Rift and, by all accounts, Sony’s Project Morpheus are impressive devices. Though they’re not the Matrix-style virtual reality sci-fi movies thought we would have by now, they are without-a-doubt the first step toward the development of that kind of technology. Aside from slapping phone screens over our eyes and turning our necks into the right analog stick of a console gamepad or mouse-look of a PC, these preliminary virtual reality headsets can give users a different kind of escape that video games are generally known for providing. For one terminally ill housebound cancer patient, the Oculus Rift provided one last vacation underneath the Tuscan sun.After Roberta Firstenberg was diagnosed with cancer and her treatments failed, she became too weak to even walk around her own yard. Doctors gave her just a few months to live, but she wanted to take one last vacation. Roberta’s granddaughter Priscilla, a games artist, had an idea: if her grandmother couldn’t take a physical vacation, maybe she could take a virtual one. Priscilla wrote to the guys at Oculus VR for help, and received an Oculus Rift in return to help make her grandmother’s dying vacation wish come true.Using the Tuscany Villa demo, Priscilla and the Oculus Rift team helped Roberta experience a sunny vacation. The demo, one of the Rift’s best so far, allows users to explore a two-story Tuscan villa that opens out into a sunny garden overlooking a seaside cliff — but that isn’t where the idea ended.Priscilla brought up the Oculus Rift-compatible version of Google Street View, where you can navigate the service using the Rift’s VR-like interface, essentially walking around a virtual representation of the real world. When Roberta was presented with the idea, she remembered a time when she was healthier and waved to a Google Street View car. Priscilla found the actual shot on Street View, and Roberta was able to walk by her old self. After that, Roberta compiled a list of places she wanted to visit in the same manner, Sadly, Roberta died shortly after and never got to go on her virtual world tour.So, the next time you remember Facebook purchased Oculus VR and are mad that Zuckerberg wants to expand the Rift beyond the gaming space, calm down and remember that this could be the kind of experiences Facebook wants to deliver.

Image courtesy of PR Newsfoto/NUST MISIS.August 24, 2018 — A European research group has developed a system that allows doctors to both improve the accuracy of diagnosing malignant cells and to provide additional opportunities for cancer treatment. The magnetoferritin compound is the main element of the new system. The research article has been published in Advanced Functional Materials.The research team consists of scientists from the National University of Science and Technology (NUST) MISIS (Moscow), the Technical University of Munich, Helmholtz Zentrum München, the University of Duisburg-Essen, and the University of Oldenburg.The lack of accuracy (contrast) in imaging is a common problem of non-invasive diagnosis. Contrast agents, compounds that are introduced into the body before a diagnostic procedure to enhance the response and make affected cells more visible on a tomograph, can be used to solve this problem in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Paramagnetic gadolinium particles and superparamagnetic iron particles are among these agents. However, even in small quantities, these substances — alien to the human body — can potentially be dangerous.”The international research team, including Dr. Ulf Wiedwald, a visiting professor at the NUST MISIS Biomedical Nanomaterials Laboratory, has developed a unique injection diagnosis system based on magnetoferritin. The developed system will significantly improve the quality of MRIs and optical diagnosis,” said Alevtina Chernikova, rector of NUST MISIS.Magnetoferritin is a compound consisting of endogenous human protein (ferritin) and a magnetic nucleus. The development and testing of the compound was conducted following the existing protocol for the synthesis of magnetoferritin, but was improved for the effective capture of tumor cells. The high concentration of magnetoferritin in tumor tissue made it possible to obtain a hypoallergenic contrast agent that is perfectly compatible with the human body.”An intravenous injection of magnetoferritin has been proposed. Then, spreading with the blood flow, [the magnetoferritin] will be captured by the targeted tumor cells. As has been shown in a large number of studies, these cells actively capture transferrin – the protein responsible for the transport of iron in the blood. The same receptors are capable of capturing the magnetoferritin as well. Once they get into the lysosomes of targeted cells, the magnetoferritin will further enhance the contrast signal,” commented Wiedwald.The system will also allow doctors to conduct therapy on tumor formations. If an MRI shows cancerous cells, they can be targeted by an electromagnetic field or light, which will lead to their heating and subsequent death.For more information: www.onlinelibrary.wiley.comReferenceMassner C., Sigmund F., Pettinger S., et al.

The new Cruise New Zealand committee The cruise sector is also worth $310.3 million to the economy and accounts for 5,330 jobs. Cruising in New Zealand has recently experienced three major milestones, including New Zealand’s largest cruise season yet, the opening of Auckland’s Shed 10 Cruise Terminal and Cruise New Zealand’s founding Chairperson, Captain Craig Harris stepping down on a high. Captain Harris founded Cruise New Zealand in 1994, with since then, cruise arrivals to New Zealand having grown by more than ten times and today cruise passenger arrivals to New Zealand outnumber arrivals from the UK, New Zealand’s third largest inbound market. The fourth major milestone was announced recently with taking over the helm from Captain Harris at Cruise New Zealand, a new “captain”, Port of Tauranga’s Commercial Manager, Graeme Marshall, with Mr Marshall also supported by “first officer” Kevin O’Sullivan, Environment Southland’s Maritime Manager, as Deputy Chair.
May 17, 2013 404 Views Commentary: Real-World Experiments Share Economists usually do it with models, so it’s rare in economics to be able to conduct a laboratory experiment. Currently, though, we’re watching two experiments in different corners of the world that support the idea that stimulus works to repair a troubled economy and austerity doesn’t.[IMAGE]Japan and the Eurozone are, through their actions, demonstrating how economies can move in opposite directions with Japan’s stimulus plan succeeding and the eurozone’s austerity program failing.To revive his nation’s dormant economy, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe argued strongly during his election campaign last year for the Bank of Japan to expand the country’s money supply and, once in office, increased government spending. The result for the first quarter was the Japanese economy grew at a 3.5 percent annualized rate, much faster than the 2.7 percent growth rate expected by analysts. If that scenario sounds familiar, we have only to look at the actions of the Federal Reserve–both in lowering the target Fed Funds rate to near zero and then adopting two further “”quantitative easing”” programs. The Fed is now pumping $85 billion a month into the economy through its purchase of agency mortgage-backed securities and its reinvestment of maturing investments into Treasury securities. While first-quarter GDP results here were positive (despite a cutback in government spending) longer-term trends show slower growth as government spending drops.While the Fed’s action did not produce the feared inflation doomsayers predicted, Abe understood that the combination of increased government spending in Japan and the expanded money supply could push up prices with the additional benefit of ending the years of deflation that paralyzed Japan’s economy.The first-quarter results in Japan, while encouraging, still have further to go. Wages in Japan are flat, and other economic indicators have yet to match overall growth, though markets have improved and corporate Japan is forecasting higher profits.Abe’s program is not done. The third leg of his economic stool–structural reforms–could be the most challenging, but over the long run perhaps the most important. Those reforms, among other things, would make Japan’s labor market more flexible and encourage immigration.[COLUMN_BREAK]Half a world away, the eurozone, after preaching and embracing austerity, reported output contracted 0.2 percent in the first quarter, showing the region remains in recession. The results were worse than expected, leaving GDP down 1.0 percent from a year ago. Output has been negative for six consecutive quarters–a recession by anyone’s definition.The only nation in the Eurozone that showed positive results in the quarter was Germany, where GDP grew 0.1 percent for the quarter but was still down 0.3 percent year-over-year.The outlook isn’t bright either. The European Commission forecast annual GDP would drop 0.4 percent for the year and that growth in 2014 would be a meager 1.2 percent. Whether the contraction would cross the Atlantic remains to be seen.While the Fed has brought interest rates down as far as possible in the United States, the European Central Bank (ECB) earlier in May brought its main policy rate to 0.5 percent from 0.75 percent. With the GDP results, the ECB is under increasing pressure to act again when it meets next month.The lessons from across the Atlantic and Pacific seem clear… if Congress and the president read and heed them.The two key housing numbers for the upcoming week will be reports Wednesday on existing-home sales for April and Thursday on new home sales for the same month. Existing-home sales are expected to show improvement, though forecasters are not as optimistic about new home sales. Of the two, the new home sales report is the more significant. (Because the existing-home sales report tracks closings, it really reflects the economy two months ago.) Indeed, forecasts notwithstanding, existing-home sales could show a decline because the pending home sales index two months ago was essentially flat to the prior month. Home sales dipped 0.6 percent in March. Sales in recent months have tracked prices, falling as prices increased. The recent price trend, combined with flat incomes and even flatter rates, suggests analysts and forecasters could be surprised.New home sales improved 1.5 percent in March, but the percentage change can be deceiving. By the numbers, sales rose just 6,000 to an annual rate of 417,000. Sales have increased in five of the last seven months, and the March increase was the weakest since last August. While homebuilders’ optimism increased in the National Association of Home Builder’s latest Housing Market Index, they may have overlooked the link between sales volume and prices, which has been demonstrating the same relationship as existing-home sales._Hear Mark Lieberman on P.O.T.U.S. (SiriusXM 124) on Friday at 6:20 a.m. Eastern._*_Want to write an opinion piece for publication on our site?

and you cannot have an alliance of political parties whose interests are regional" the finance minister said at the HT Leadership Summit in New Delhi Jaitley’s comments have come in the run-up to the upcoming assembly polls in some major states and also the Lok Sabha elections These remarks assume significance amidst talk of formation of a grand alliance of opposition parties to defeat the BJP in 2019 He further said "you cannot have an alliance with parties whose leaders are maverick or they want to be in an alliance to have criminal cases to be closed If you get together this kind of a crowd then 2019 will be a choice between a stable government with a strong leader versus a completely anarchic combination" Observing that history had provided India with a great opportunity he said India has been growing fast consistently despite the global slowdown and other factors "So therefore this is when we need coherence governance and policy This is not the time where you can go in for an anarchic kind of combination I think aspirational societies never commit suicide So I am very clear what will happen in 2019" he said Dismissing Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s allegation that the Narendra Modi- led government is responsible for mounting bad loans in the banking sector Jaitley said "I think some people need to grow up and understand these issues Debate on these issues has to be a grown-up debate" The total amount of debt given till 2007-08 was about Rs 18 lakh crore by public sector banks in the country and when the global slowdown began this Rs 18 lakh crore went up to Rs 55 lakh crore in 2014 he said Year after year he said the previous UPA government was asking banks to grow their lending by 31 percent "So the undeserving and unstable projects were all been funded That’s when the bank loot started So the Congress president must realise that this was the genesis of the problem" he said The second crime that they committed was instead of accepting the problem of additional capacity banks were asked to roll over the debt when the borrower started defaulting he said Citing an example of Vijay Mallya without taking his name Jaitley said: "in one of the most controversial cases where a person has escaped to the UK it was the RBI which wrote to the SBI to please give him (Mallya) the second restructuring" So you have managed the system to such an extent that the RBI telling State Bank of India that someone should be given a second restructuring he added Mallya who is currently in the United Kingdom has been charged with defaulting on bank loans to the tune of Rs 9000 crore In the same manner that weve begun to remove the words "gay" and "retard" from our "comedic" vocabulary PTSD is not an embarrassing thought that still makes you cringe a

read: “Following the press conference earlier today by our legal team the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Worldwide has been reliably and incontrovertibly informed that some of the utterances of their defence lawyers were made without consultation “These utterances border on negotiations and some were against the Niger Delta Avengers As as a result of this unsolicited and unguarded utterances the defence team has been sacked and will be replaced “The IPOB leader wishes to state categorically that the only thing we are open to is negotiations that will lead to modalities and processes to restore Biafra and avert further hardships on the people of Nigeria who have been under bondage since his kidnapping and illegal detention “The Niger Delta Avengers arose because of the inherent injustice in Nigeria as manifested in the disregard to the rule of law when Buhari refused to obey court order to unconditionally release our leader Nnamdi Kanu “We spoke the mind of our leader when we stated for record purposes that IPOB and Niger Delta Avengers share the same ideology of freedom for Biafra “Anybody publicly dissociating IPOB from Niger Delta Avengers is a mortal enemy of IPOB family worldwide under the leadership of Nnamdi Kanu “Let it be known that as long as Buhari and Daura continue to tamper with Nnamdi Kanu‘s defence team through bribery inducements and intimidation IPOB will keep on changing the team” It added that “for the records the press conference by the now-sacked legal team was about bringing to public knowledge the foolishness of the Department of State Services (DSS) in bringing treasonable felony charges against our leader and the lack of evidence thereof “The press conference was NEVER about negotiations because should negotiations start IPOB will notify the world about it Right now we are not negotiating and will not negotiate until existing court orders ordering the release of Nnamdi Kanu are obeyed “In the interim Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor will continue to act as lead counsel until other counsels are appointed who will not sell their souls to the devil Biafra or death” one of the counsels to Kanu had at a press briefing disowned the

public lecture said many Nigerians had wrong impressions about the roles he played in the administration of Abacha “My primary duty as the CSO to the head of state was to ensure the safety of the head of state and that I did in conformity with the oath of Commission of the Nigerian Army and the Oath of Allegiance” he reportedly said “As a soldier who had taken the oath of commission and the oath of allegiance the only thing paramount to me at that time was the safety of my principal and I ensured that with all the powers attached to my office” he addedm He accused some unnamed Yoruba elders who turned around to criticise Abacha after he had died of being behind some of the policies of the dictator “Some forces in Yoruba land were behind Abacha and they were the ones behind some of the things

have them as my adopted parent “I met papa by coincidence in one of the court sittings in Lagos He stood for me after a woman had lied before the court that I killed late Kudirat Abiola It was that
