Security Council to Renew MINURSO’s Mandate Without Complications: Chinese Ambassador

New York – Liu Jieyi, China’s Ambassador to the United Nations told the press on Friday that the Council would renew MINURSO’s mandate “without complications.”The UN Security Council is scheduled to receive United Nations Secretary General’s annual report on “the situation in the Western Sahara” next Friday April 8.Based on the report, the UN body will decide by the end of the month whether or not to renew the mandate of UN Mission to the Western Sahara, known by its French acronym as MINURSO. This year’s examination of MINURSO’s mandate comes against the backdrop of an unprecedented row between Morocco and the UN Secretariat following Ban Ki-moon’s statements in the Tindouf camps in Algeria last month when he described Morocco’s presence in the Western Sahara as “occupation.”Rabat vehemently to the UN chief’s biased statements, and expelled 84 members of the civil component of MINURSO.Amid the unabated tension between Rabat and Ban Ki-moon, the Chinese Ambassador to the United Nations, who took over the presidency of the 15-member body, sent a reassuring to Morocco on Friday.The renewal of MINURSO’s mandate “will be done without complications. We think it is achievable,” he told the press on Friday.“Our ambition, as President of the Security Council, is that the theme will be resolved smoothly” and that in the end “there will be a renewal of the mandate of MINURSO,” he added.Analysts say despite the efforts Ban Ki-moon and his personal envoy, Christopher Ross, will make to lash out at Morocco and call on the Security Council to change the framework of negotiations set out in Resolution 1754 of April 2007, the members of the UN executive body have no interest in escalating tension between Morocco and the UN Secretariat.“Morocco has good and balanced relations with the five permanent members of the Security Council, and none of them will be tempted to impose any other framework of negotiations to Rabat,” a Syrian political analyst who works with an Arab mission at the United Nations told Morocco World News.“Despite ban Ki-moon’ attempts to prove the contrary, the Western Sahara is not high on the agenda of the Security Council, and it is unlikely that its members will deviate from the rule of consensus that has been followed in voting for the renewal of MINURSO’s mandate,” the UN expert, who asked to speak on the condition of anonymity, added.The United States is the penholder of the resolution on MINURSO. Following the submission of the UNSG’s annual report, Washington drafts the resolution in coordination with the other members of the Group of Friends of the Western Sahara, which includes France, Russia, the United Kingdom and Spain.© Morocco World News.

Ban calls for end to Hamas rocket attacks Israeli withdrawal from Gaza

Mr. Ban also announced he will send a humanitarian needs assessment team early this week to Gaza, where three weeks of violence have claimed over 1,000 lives and wounded more than 5,000, in addition to causing widespread destruction as well as suffering for the territory’s 1.5 million Palestinian residents. He intends to launch a humanitarian appeal for Gaza soon after. “Even after the announcement of a ceasefire by Israel, the situation on the ground is still volatile and dangerous,” he told the Conference on Reconstruction and Humanitarian Assistance in Gaza, held today in the Egyptian seaside resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, noting that clashes, rockets and actions by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) continue.“For the sake of the people of Gaza, I urge in the strongest possible terms Hamas to stop firing rockets,” he stated. “As all of us had urged Israelis to stop its offensive, those who have influence on Hamas must press them now to stop rocket firing. “For its part, I urge Israel in the strongest possible terms to show utmost restraint and withdraw its troops from Gaza in the coming days,” the Secretary-General added.Mr. Ban arrived in Egypt following a stop in Damascus, where he discussed the situation in Gaza with President Bashar al-Assad. His efforts to secure a diplomatic solution to the three-week crisis, which began on 27 December when Israel launched a military operation in Gaza with the stated aim of ending Hamas rocket attacks against Israel, also took him to Cairo, Amman, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Ramallah, Ankara and Beirut.Speaking to reporters in Sharm el-Sheikh, the Secretary-General said he looked to world leaders to continue to work together “to make this ceasefire a durable and sustainable one and which could be respected fully by all parties concerned.” He stressed the need to urgently bring the Middle East peace process back on track and pledged to work with the other members of the diplomatic Quartet – the European Union, Russia and the United States – in that regard. “We have already experienced sufferings and tragedies in 2006 in Lebanon, the situation in Gaza has been a repetition of the failure of this peace process, this is a failure of political will, at the level of people and at the level of leadership,” he stated. 18 January 2009Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, stressing that Israel’s unilateral decision to halt its 22-day military offensive in Gaza should lead to a durable peace, called on Sunday for Hamas to stop firing rockets into Israel and for Israel to withdraw its forces from the Strip. read more

More details about Canadians death in Burkina Faso

More details have emerged about last week’s kidnapping and killing of a Canadian mining company executive in Burkina Faso.An official with the West African country’s Ministry of Security says the gunmen who kidnapped Kirk Woodman of Halifax, Nova Scotia appears to have stolen items like cell phones, computers and money. The theft implies the kidnapping may have been carried out by armed bandits, not terrorists.As there are no witnesses and currently no one claiming responsibility, it remains unclear what took place in the hours before Woodman’s body was found riddled with bullets.Woodman worked for Progress Minerals Inc., a Vancouver-based company. He was found dead last Wednesday in Oudalan province, in the northern Sahel region. He was kidnapped the night before by armed gunmen from a mining camp in Tiabongou.The investigation into his death is ongoing.A second Canadian from Quebec, Edith Blais, is still missing in Burkina Faso. read more

Over 100000 Angolans in south cut off from badly needed aid UN

Just back from a visit to the region, Erik de Mul, UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Angola, reported that of all the areas that had become accessible to humanitarian partners since hostilities ended in April, the situation in Mavinga, in Kuando Kubango province, was the most critical. “Access is very difficult, he said “and the sheer number of people in need in Mavinga and surrounding areas is overwhelming.”Although there are currently three non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and one UN agency, the World Food Programme (WFP), currently working in the area, the humanitarian situation in the town remained critical, as roads and bridges were in desperate need of repair and the single airstrip was wearing down from flights bringing food assistance.Mr. de Mul stressed that the overall situation in Mavinga has proved difficult to stabilize. “The priorities right now are to increase the amount of potable water available in the town and to pre-position food before the rainy season begins and makes everything worse,” he said. The UN’s other priorities include distribution of blankets and other non-food items, as well as de-mining. According to Mr. de Mul, international donors have been generous in their response to the 2002 Inter-Agency Appeal for Angola, but more funds were urgently required in order to stabilize the grim humanitarian situation in areas such as Mavinga, as well as in Bunjei and Alto Chicapa. Humanitarian partners were currently preparing the 2003 consolidated appeal, which will focus on life saving and resettlement and return activities.In other news, Ibrahim Gambari, Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative for Angola, met with President José Eduardo dos Santos this morning. Mr. Gambari told reporters afterwards that an expert panel has already started working on the first formal meeting next week of the Joint Commission, which is tasked with completing the outstanding issues of the Lusaka Protocol. read more

CRCMining awarded A22 million grant from ACARP

first_imgCRCMining, an Australian research centre, has been awarded a total of A$2.2 million in grants from the Australian Coal Association Research Program (ACARP). The company’s Vice President for Mining Research, Professor Paul Lever said the funding will assist six new and continuing research projects. The grants cover a wide range of projects; including continuing research into DC motors, shovel automated digging and blasthole slotting.Dr Galina Mirzaeva and Professor Bob Betz from the University of Newcastle received a grant for a project to improve AC drives for electric rope shovels and an extension grant for their DC motor duty meter project. “We are tremendously excited to receive these two grants,” Mirzaeva said. “We have seen particularly encouraging results from the experimental work conducted in the DC motor facility. The extension grant will assist in furthering our research into the areas of power network quality and effective use of digital drives. Development of a comprehensive condition monitoring tool for DC rope shovels is seen as the next step of this ambitious project.“The AC drives project is fairly new and will initially start at the laboratory scale level. We are sure that it will further facilitate the growing interest within the mining industry to using this modern technology with excavating machines. In the future we plan to also investigate into AC drives for draglines and to move from lab prototypes to full size systems,” Mirzaeva added.OHS Manager and Project Leader, Matt Stockwell, received A$230,000 for a trial of the centre’s Blasthole Slotting technology. Stockwell: “This ACARP grant will assist us to demonstrate the first full-scale proof of concept of this innovative technology to the coal mining industry. This will improve our understanding of how the slotting of blast holes can assist mine operators to optimise blast performance and improve coal recovery.  It is a critical milestone in the development process towards the commercial application of this technology.”last_img read more

MassDOT Announces Video Contest For High School Students

first_imgBOSTON, MA — The Massachusetts Department of Transportation is announcing the sixth annual statewide high school video contest, Safe Streets Smart Trips.The contest serves as an initiative within the Massachusetts Strategic Highway Safety Plan to promote and educate the public about safe walking, bicycling and driving behaviors. The contest began five years ago to encourage high school students to showcase their understanding of roadway safety across all travel modes to try to decrease pedestrian and bicyclist injuries and fatalities.“We are pleased to once again be able to give students the opportunity to create educational videos which underscore messages in the ‘Scan the Streets for Wheels and Feet’ initiative,” said MassDOT Secretary and CEO Stephanie Pollack. “The video contest has resulted in very creative ideas during the last few years and we look forward to seeing what teenagers will produce during this year’s contest to make the public more aware of safe behaviors while traveling.”In summer 2017, MassDOT launched a new statewide campaign to raise awareness about motorists, pedestrians and cyclists safely sharing the commonwealth’s streets. This initiative reminds travelers to “Scan the Street for Wheels and Feet.” The campaign slogan emphasizes the notion that everyone who is traveling on a roadway is responsible for doing their part to ensure safety.The video contest, open to all Massachusetts high school students, features a freshman/sophomore category and junior/senior category. Per contest guidelines, students are asked to write and produce a one-minute commercial video that focuses on one or several of the crash statistics from the campaign and uses the slogan “Scan the Street for Wheels and Feet.”Complete contest guidelines are being sent to high schools and are also found at http://Mass.gov/roadway-safety-video. Grand prize and runner-up videos in each category will be chosen by a MassDOT panel during October. Winning videos will be screened at MassDOT’s annual active transportation conference, “Moving Together,” where the creators will receive prizes. Top videos may also be used in future safety campaigns on MBTA digital boards.To learn more about the Safe Streets Smart Trips high school video contest, visit http://Mass.gov/roadway-safety-video or call 857-383-3807.

City Limits explores development of Anchorage

first_imgNew Anchorage Museum exhibit opened on Friday.As part of Anchorage’s Centennial Celebration, the Anchorage Museum is hosting a new exhibit called “City Limits.” It’s a brief walk through Anchorage’s past that helps visitors understand how the city developed.Download AudioCurator Carolyn Kozak walks past Dena’ina artifacts and an empty white tent into the echo-y museum gallery. Surrounding her are bits of Anchorage’s history –photos of the first railroad spike, a teal kitchen from the 1950s, the uniform of a pipeline worker.Kozak says the exhibit tells the story of how Anchorage’s landscape and diversity came to be. When non-native settlers first arrived, they chopped down trees and built a work camp focused on the railroad. Kozak says the first Railroad Commissioner Frederick Mears soon realized that they needed to care for their environment before proceeding with development.“The water was close to becoming contaminated so he changed his first order of business from railroad construction to surveying a new town site and getting people to higher, safer ground.”That’s why downtown is a perfect grid, and the rest of the city is not.The exhibit’s opening gallery during installation.“The city limits were really only a small part of the town. Beyond that it was unregulated. They didn’t have municipal services. There wasn’t any running water. If you wanted a road out there you had to build it yourself. So it sort of explains the midtown sprawl in a way, and I think Spenard Road is a good example.”Kozak says the exhibit is about more than the physical development of the city, it’s about the community as well. She walks into the center gallery and faces a giant map highlighting more than a hundred countries — they’re the places where Anchorage residents are originally from. Colorful graphs show how Anchorage’s diversity compares with other big cities.“I’m hoping that this gallery will help dispel some myths that our visitors have about Anchorage and Alaska more broadly and also some permanent residents as well. I think people think of the state as being very homogeneous at times, especially visitors from the Outside, but in reality Alaska is the fifth most diverse state in the United States.”The exhibit’s central gallery during installation.Kozak says the exhibit also celebrates the city’s more colorful past with t-shirts from famous strip clubs and bars, a historic photo showing barrels of liquor being destroyed during Prohibition, and a cartoon of an animal chorus line the 1970s singing the old tourism theme song, “Wild! Wild about Anchorage…”The City Limits exhibit runs through October 11.last_img read more

first_imgGame of Thrones season 8 episode 1 Bran stark meeting Jaime LannisterGame of Thrones (@gameofthrones/Instagram)Game of Thrones season 8 episode 2 “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” has apparently leaked online few hours before its official air time. Currently, HD-720 print is available on several torrent websites and desperate fans are downloading the illegal content rather than watching it legitimately.As per a report, fans in Germany were streaming Game of Thrones season 8 episode 1 “Winterfell” on Amazon Prime but soon after the episode ended, they were left in shock to find the second episode ready to stream. Soon after which, fans were quick to share the video amongst their friends and family, reports Winter is Coming.The synopsis of the Game of Thrones season 8 episode 2 reads as “Jon Snow and Daenerys gather their troops before the confrontation with the army of the dead. The terrible menace puts in jeopardy everyone south of the wall.”As I have mentioned in the past, we are not going to disclose anything from the leaks but if you want to learn about the episode you can check out the entire Reddit subsection where hundreds of fans are currently discussing the unaired second episode. As of now, we have no idea whether that episode is removed from Amazon Prime or not but as of now, the episode has not made its way to the illegal torrents.Despite HBO’s best attempts to prevent the episodes from leaking, it happens almost every time that we get an episode leak hours before its release. We know that the ardent Game of Thrones fans will choose to avoid these leaks and will tune into HBO or other streaming services to watch the second anticipated episode of Game of Thrones season 8. Game of Thrones season 8 episode 1 review Daenerys TargaryenGame of Thrones (@gameofthrones/Instagram)As we have discussed extensively in the past, Game of Thrones season 8 episode 2 title, “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” will feature Jaime Lannister’s presence in front of Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow (or Aegon Targaryen). Jaime will have to answer for the crimes which he committed long ago — the murder of Daenerys’ father. At the same time, even Sansa Stark could question him as she saw it first hand how he behaved with her late father Ned Stark.However, we know for a fact that Bran Stark has something important to get from Jaime and he won’t let anyone do anything to him. Maybe Jaime is Azor Ahai and Bran Stark knows that he is the only way to put an end to the terrors of Night King.We will learn more about it when Game of Thrones season 8 episode 2 will officially air in a couple of hours.last_img read more

Bad breath Bengaluru man refuses to hug friend gets stabbed

People at diabetes risk need to exercise more

first_imgWhile exercise is good for everyone, those with an immediate relative —mother, father or sibling — with Type-2 diabetes need to exercise more than others to derive the same preventive benefit, says a study.The cause of Type-2 diabetes is linked to both genetics and lifestyle. If you have an immediate relative with the condition, the risk of contracting the diabetes is about three times higher. Preventive treatments involve—eating healthier and exercising more. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’For this study, researchers at Lund University in Sweden analysed the effects of exercise in people with increased risk of Type-2 diabetes caused by being immediately related to someone with the disease. The participants consisted of a total of 50 unfit, slightly overweight but completely healthy men in their 40s who, for seven months, exercised regularly at a fitness centre. Half of them belonged to the risk group and the other half served as a control group who did not have relatives with Type-2 diabetes. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe participants were offered three training sessions per week, including a spinning class and two aerobics classes, during which their exercise intensity and energy consumption was measured. The exercise routine for both groups was equally hard, but the group at risk attended more sessions and as a group expended more energy than the control group.After making adjustments to account for the differences, the results showed that both groups benefited from exercising —they all lost weight, reduced their waist size and increased their fitness.  “The difference was that participants from the risk group had to exercise more to achieve the same results as the participants from the control group,” said lead researcher Ola Hansson from Lund University.“We now hope to continue with further studies, including examining whether exercise intensity rather than volume is a crucial factor in determining how the risk group responds to exercise,” Hansson said. The findings appeared in the Journal of Applied Physiology.last_img read more
