UNESCO chief condemns murder of Uzbek journalist in Kyrgyzstan

The Director-General of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), which works to promote press freedom globally, today condemned the recent murder of Uzbek journalist Alisher Saipov in Kyrgyzstan.“The use of violence to silence a journalist is unacceptable, it runs counter to the basic human right of freedom of expression and tramples the democratic right of people to engage in free and informed debate,” Koïchiro Matsuura. The 26-year old victim was killed in the Kyrgyz city of Osh , near the Uzbek border, on 24 October. He was shot three times at close range by an unknown assailant who is reported to have used a silencer, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ). Mr. Saipov was the editor of independent Uzbek-language weekly Siyosat. He reported on Uzbekistan’s political and social issues for Radio Free Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Voice of America, and the Central Asia news website Ferghana.“Shedding more blood is not going to solve the issues besetting Uzbek society,” Mr. Matsuura said. 29 October 2007The Director-General of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), which works to promote press freedom globally, today condemned the recent murder of Uzbek journalist Alisher Saipov in Kyrgyzstan. read more

Iraq Security Council ends warrelated mandates in milestone session

15 December 2010The Security Council today ended United Nations mandates on Iraq stemming from the 1991 and 2003 wars, including those on weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), in a move that Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called a “milestone” on the country’s path to normality. The Security Council today ended United Nations mandates on Iraq stemming from the 1991 and 2003 wars, including those on weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), in a move that Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called a “milestone” on the country’s path to normality.“Its people have known tremendous hardship,” he said in his speech to the 15-member body. “They continue to struggle with insecurity and appalling violence. They lack jobs and basic services. But today we recognize how far the country has come in key aspects of its journey to normalize its status in the community of nations.”Citing “the difficult history” on WMDs in Iraq, he hailed the lifting of its remaining obligations on the issue in the wake of its pledge to remain free of such weapons, enshrined in its constitution, and its accession to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), Biological Weapons Convention, Chemical Weapons Convention and Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty.Saddam Hussein’s WMD activities, particularly with regard to nuclear arms, were one of the reasons given for the United States-led invasion of 2003. None were subsequently found.In one of the resolutions adopted today, this one unanimously, the Council terminated measures it imposed on Iraq starting in 1990 after its invasion of Kuwait and subsequent expulsion by US-led forces, including the destruction of all WMD materials. At the same time it urged the country to ratify the additional protocol to the NPT that allows for unannounced spot verification checks.The Council also unanimously voted to end, by next June, provisions in its Resolution 1483 of 2003 stemming from the earlier oil-for-food programme under which Saddam Hussein was allowed to sell oil for humanitarian goods, despite sanctions imposed on him in a stand-off over inspections of his WMD activities. Under Resolution 1483, proceeds from petroleum and gas exports are deposited into an internationally audited Development Fund for Iraq “until such time as an internationally recognized, representative government of Iraq is properly constituted.”A third resolution, adopted by 14 votes with one abstention, asked Mr. Ban to terminate all residual activities stemming from the internationally supervised oil-for-food programme, first adopted in the Council’s Resolution 986 of 1995, and updated in four subsequent resolutions.In recognition of these steps towards normality, Mr. Ban commended Iraq’s leaders for their recent agreements ending months of political deadlock, paving the way for a national partnership government – the first peaceful transition between elected governments under full Iraqi sovereignty.He noted that a new government faces many challenges in providing stability and opportunity for all Iraqis, including the normalization of Arab-Kurd relations in disputed areas, ensuring the protection of all minorities, including Christians, and managing oil production and the return of refugees and internally displaced persons.“The United Nations is eager to be part of this wide-ranging drive to normalization,” Mr. Ban said, noting that the planned US military drawdown will have major security implications for the UN Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI), which for more than seven years has been helping the conflict-ravaged country recover from the 2003 war. “The Mission will continue to need strong political and financial support from Member States.”Presiding over the session, Vice-President Joe Biden of the United States, which holds the Council’s monthly presidency, paid tribute to UNAMI’s work, with particular homage to the first UNAMI chief in Iraq, Sergio Vieira de Mello, who was killed in the massive terrorist bombing of the UN headquarters in Baghdad in August 2003.Reading out a Presidential Statement, Mr. Biden reaffirmed the Council’s commitment to Iraq’s independence, sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity and called on the Government to fulfil its remaining obligations to Kuwait – which include reparations for the 1990 invasion and demarcation of borders. Taking part in the meeting, Iraq’s Foreign Minister, Hoshyar Zebari, also expressed his country’s appreciation for the UN role.In concluding his remarks to the Council, Mr. Ban addressed the Iraqi people directly. “You have suffered too much for too long,” he said. “I pay tribute to your resilience. There will be more hurdles ahead. But you have the wisdom and the capacity to overcome. You are now in the lead in your quest for a better life. The United Nations will continue to stand with you as an impartial partner. We are determined to fulfil that mandate, and help you find, once and for all, the path of prosperity and peace.”In a bilateral meeting on Wednesday afternoon, Mr. Ban and Mr. Biden discussed the need for follow-through and the importance of the UN role in Iraq. Other matters they discussed included the need to de-escalate post-electoral tensions in Côte d’Ivoire, the importance of ensuring successful referenda in Sudan next month, and Lebanon, the Korean peninsula and UN reform.Mr. Ban also met with Mr. Zebari to discuss Iraq’s obligations, including those to Kuwait, and the progress in forming the new government. read more

GM halts twothirds of St Catharines production over strike by US auto

ST. CATHARINES, Ont. — General Motors says it has temporarily laid off about two-thirds of hourly workers at its parts plant in St. Catharines, Ont. as the strike by the United Auto Workers in the U.S. enters week two.The company says about 730 employees are off the job after it halted engine production at the plant Monday because of the strike disruption.The closure follows the full shutdown of vehicle production at the company’s Oshawa Assembly Plant Friday because of supply chain issues from the strike, leaving another 2,000 hourly workers temporarily laid off.The plant closures have led to a wave of temporary layoffs at companies dependent on the plants, including about 1,700 unionized workers centred around Oshawa operations and another 200 from the St. Catharines plant.Close to 50,000 GM workers in the U.S. went on strike last Monday, forcing a halt to production at more than 30 manufacturing sites across nine states.The labour action, the first national strike by the UAW since 2007, is over issues including wages, health care, and job security.

Grenfell Tower Kensington MP calls for inquiry head to be replaced with

first_imgElizabeth Campbell was nominated by the Tory group on Kensington and Chelsea Council to be the new chief executiveCredit:BBC Labour’s Emma Dent Coad speaking after she was elected as MP for Kensington Credit:Rick Findler/PA Elizabeth Campbell Mrs Campbell, who quit as a long-standing member of the council’s cabinet in May, said she would ask Communities Secretary Sajid Javid for help.Mrs Campbell must be formally elected by a meeting of the full council and a spokesman for the authority said the next scheduled meeting was on July 19, although an emergency one could be called earlier.One Tory councillor, who did not want to be named, said her election was a “formality” and Mrs Campbell was now leader of the council “in practice”.Ms Caro said she had no confidence in the leadership of the council and called for it to be dissolved.She said: “It’s like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. They have shown they are not fit to run a council or deliver the services that are needed and I don’t really think it matters who is the leader.” The retired judge leading the inquiry into the Grenfell Tower disaster should stand down because he will not have “empathy” or “understand human beings”, the local MP has suggested.Emma Dent Coad, the Labour MP for Kensington, joined calls for Sir Martin Moore-Bick to be replaced as head of the inquiry, saying he could not understand what people had been through.”How anybody like that could have empathy for what those people have been through, I don’t understand”,  she told the BBC Radio 4 Today programme.”A technocrat is really not what we need right now. We need someone who can understand human beings and what they’ve been through.”She added: “I don’t think he should do it. I don’t think there will be any credibility. Some people are saying they are not going to co-operate with it so it’s not going to work.” And Sue Caro, a co-ordinator for the Justice 4 Grenfell group that represents survivors, said: “Our view is the whole thing needs to start again – there is no confidence in the process.” She continued: “As new leader, I will appoint a new cabinet tomorrow and things are going to change.” Sir Martin’s appointment has been met met with concern by survivors, with a group called BME (black and minority ethnic) Lawyers 4 Grenfell writing to Prime Minister Theresa May to say her choice was “astonishing”.The open letter, signed by the chairman of the Society of Black Lawyers Peter Herbert and the president of the Association of Muslim Lawyers Ismet Rawat, said: “Your lack of consultation has increased the mistrust of both the Grenfell community and the wider community and led to firm opposition of the appointment of Sir Martin Moore-Bick.”center_img In her first public statement, Mrs Campbell said she was “truly sorry” and pledged to “heal the wounds” in the community.”The first thing I want to do is I want to apologise,” she said. “This is our community and we have failed it when people needed us the most. So, no buts, no ifs, no excuses – I am truly sorry.” Meanwhile, judges have been told to issue tougher sentences for gross negligence manslaughter in the wake of the Grenfell disaster.There have previously been no set sentencing guidelines for the offence but the longest sentences were usually for less than ten years. Now the Sentencing Council has moved to tell judges that they can hand out prison terms of up to 18 years in the most serious cases.It comes as the nominee to lead the embattled council handling the Grenfell Tower fire fallout is expected to pick her cabinet on Tuesday after promising “change” moments after her selection by the local Conservative party.The Tory group on Kensington and Chelsea Council nominated Elizabeth Campbell to take over from Nicholas Paget-Brown, who resigned on Friday amid fierce criticism of the council’s response to the Grenfell tragedy. Her comments came as it emerged that Sir Martin is prepared to consider the “broad” causes of the fire amid concern from survivors’ groups over its scope and leadership.Sir Martin previously indicated his investigation would be limited to the causes of the deadly fire, why it spread so quickly and how it could be prevented in future. But survivors suggested they were prepared to abandon the process unless the parameters were broadened to consider systemic issues, such as why residents’ concerns about fire safety were allegedly ignored by authorities.A source said the former Court of Appeal judge was looking to scrutinise issues tracing back to building regulations at the time the block was erected.”He is very happy to look at why there were warnings that weren’t listened to, these were the allegations,” the source said.It is understood the inquiry into the blaze, which killed at least 80 people, will be a “broad interpretation of what caused the fire”, which extends beyond the “physics of what happened”.

Giggs expects Madrid star to be absent

WSUV professor first recipient of new grant

first_imgA researcher at Washington State University Vancouver is the first recipient of a new type of grant from the university’s College of Education.Michael Dunn, who trains teachers of special education on the Vancouver campus, was awarded the Judy Nichols Mitchell faculty fellowship. He will receive $10,000 annually for the next three years to run research projects focusing on elementary school students in Clark County who are struggling with writing.The fellowship represents a fairly new concept in college grant-giving, as it’s meant as seed money for researchers who stand a good chance of attracting larger federal or private grants once they’ve produced small-scale results.The new Mitchell fellowship is available to any education researcher in the statewide WSU system. The leadership of the College of Education in Pullman nominated the Vancouver professor for the award, said Kim Holapa, the college’s director of development.The fellowship is named after the late Judy Mitchell, who was the dean of the college of education from 1998-2009.Mitchell had created the concept of a faculty fellowship at the college. Such fellowships are funded through private donations, not tax dollars, and are relatively small, Holapa said.last_img read more

Senate NDAA Set for Final Vote Monday

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The Senate is scheduled to vote on final passage of the fiscal 2019 defense authorization bill Monday evening, after the legislation cleared several procedural votes during debate Thursday. One of those votes was to limit debate on a substitute amendment to the measure that includes the Senate Armed Services’ version of the defense policy bill, S. 2987, and 45 amendments that have support from both parties, reported CQ. The Senate also rejected a vote to limit debate on an amendment that would have allowed Congress to review new regulations by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, blocking it from advancing. Debate over the authorization bill never really got off the ground this week due to an impasse among Republican lawmakers over what amendments would receive votes on the floor.last_img read more

Amazon asks FCC to greenlight its internet satellite plan

first_imgAmazon made the next move in the race for satellite broadband internet.  Blue Origin Amazon has taken another step toward providing global broadband internet from space through its Project Kuiper. The company filed paperwork with the US government to launch the thousands of satellites needed for the plan.Amazon submitted its application with the FCC for Project Kuiper on July 4.  The internet heavyweight asked the commission for permission to “launch and operate a non-geostationary satellite orbit system using Ka−band frequencies.” Satellites will orbit 366 to 391 miles above Earth. “Submitting to the FCC is the first step – next, the FCC will thoroughly review our application and we look forward to working with them throughout this process,” an Amazon spokesperson said in an email Monday. Project Kuiper will use 3,236 low Earth orbit satellites to provide broadband internet globally. “The Kuiper System will deliver satellite broadband communications services to tens of millions of unserved and underserved consumers and businesses in the United States and around the globe,” the company said in the filing.Meanwhile, Starlink is the SpaceX plan to provide broadband access across the world from space, and the company launched its first batch of satellites back in May. Billionaire Richard Branson started this race when his company OneWeb launched satellites for his own high-speed internet space project back in February. On Tuesday, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai addressed the private sector push for small satellites and his enthusiasm for it.”We now have in our sights new competition in the broadband marketplace and new opportunities for rural Americans who lack access to high-speed Internet access,” Pai said in remarks prepared for a talk at the US Chamber of Commerce. “That’s why the FCC under my leadership has moved quickly to give a green light to satellite entrepreneurs like OneWeb, SpaceX, and O3b and is considering other applications from entrants like Amazon and Boeing.” Pai also noted that on Tuesday he presented his FCC colleagues a draft order to make it easier and cheaper to license small satellites.

Increase in acidity may not be harmful to coral reefs after all

first_img © 2015 Phys.org More information: K. L. Yeakel et al. Shifts in coral reef biogeochemistry and resulting acidification linked to offshore productivity, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (2015). DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1507021112AbstractOceanic uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) has acidified open-ocean surface waters by 0.1 pH units since preindustrial times. Despite unequivocal evidence of ocean acidification (OA) via open-ocean measurements for the past several decades, it has yet to be documented in near-shore and coral reef environments. A lack of long-term measurements from these environments restricts our understanding of the natural variability and controls of seawater CO2-carbonate chemistry and biogeochemistry, which is essential to make accurate predictions on the effects of future OA on coral reefs. Here, in a 5-y study of the Bermuda coral reef, we show evidence that variations in reef biogeochemical processes drive interannual changes in seawater pH and Ωaragonite that are partly controlled by offshore processes. Rapid acidification events driven by shifts toward increasing net calcification and net heterotrophy were observed during the summers of 2010 and 2011, with the frequency and extent of such events corresponding to increased offshore productivity. These events also coincided with a negative winter North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) index, which historically has been associated with extensive offshore mixing and greater primary productivity at the Bermuda Atlantic Time-series Study (BATS) site. Our results reveal that coral reefs undergo natural interannual events of rapid acidification due to shifts in reef biogeochemical processes that may be linked to offshore productivity and ultimately controlled by larger-scale climatic and oceanographic processes. To better understand what might happen with coral reefs if more carbon dioxide makes its way into the oceans due to an increase of the gas in the atmosphere caused by human emissions, the researchers set up monitoring devices along a coral reef offshore from Bermuda—information from the sensors was monitored for five years (2007 to 2012). The team also had access to data from an ocean chemistry monitoring station approximately 80 kilometers from their study site. The combined data offered a unique perspective on coral activity.In studying the data, the researchers noticed that spikes of phytoplankton blooms occurred during 2010 and again in 2011—those blooms made their way to the coral reef offering more food than normal for the coral. The coral responded by growing which caused them to pull more alkaline carbonate from the surrounding water, making it more acidic. Eating more also resulted in the corals emitting more carbon dioxide into the water. The result was a big increase in acidity—to levels higher than have been predicted for the future due to human emissions—yet, the coral continued to flourish.These observations contrast sharply with the prevailing view that an increase in acidity is harmful to coral—leading to death if it goes too far. But the levels seen by the researchers with this new effort suggest that is not the case at all, and therefore muddles theories regarding the impact on the oceans of higher levels of carbon dioxide and warmer temperatures. Another team with Western Australia noted that the results found by this new team appeared to agree with those of a small study they conducted where they put boxes around some coral and piped in carbon dioxide, to no detrimental effect.
