UNESCO head meets with UNs top gender equality relief officials

The contributions that the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) can make in the areas of gender equality and humanitarian aid were the focus of talks between the agency’s chief and top world body officials.UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova underlined the importance of linking health and education during her meeting yesterday with Michelle Bachelet, former Chilean president and head of the newly-created UN Women, or the UN Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women.Established in July by a unanimous vote of the General Assembly, UN Women will oversee all of the world body’s programmes aimed at promoting women’s rights and their full participation in global affairs.It merges four UN entities: the UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), the Division for the Advancement of Women (DAW), the Office of the Special Adviser on Gender Issues, and the UN International Research and Training Institute for the Advancement of Women (UN-INSTRAW).Gender equality is one of UNESCO’s two global priorities for the period of 2008-2013 and a pillar of her mandate, Ms. Bokova – the first woman to head UNESCO – said.She also met yesterday with Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Valerie Amos, detailing UNESCO’s expertise and successes in post-conflict and post-disaster situations.Ms. Bokova also spoke of her agency’s vital role in restoring education in affected communities, including Haiti and Pakistan, and the establishment of early warning systems for tsunamis and other ocean-related hazards worldwide.For her part, Ms. Amos, who also serves as UN Emergency Relief Coordinator, expressed her interest in strengthening cooperation among UNESCO and other UN entities, highlighting the importance of expanding the reach of early warning and prevention mechanisms around the world. 24 September 2010The contributions that the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) can make in the areas of gender equality and humanitarian aid were the focus of talks between the agency’s chief and top world body officials. read more

UN chief joins with European and Islamic officials to urge calm on

In a joint statement, Kofi Annan, along with the head of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) and the European Union’s (EU) senior representative for foreign and security policy, said there should be a “spirit of friendship and mutual respect” not only between countries but also between believers of different religions.“We are deeply alarmed at the repercussions of the publication in Denmark several months ago of insulting caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed and their subsequent republication by some other European newspapers and at the violent acts that have occurred in reaction to them,” said the statement, which was endorsed by Mr. Annan and Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu of the OIC and Javier Solana of the EU.“We fully uphold the right of free speech. But we understand the deep hurt and widespread indignation felt in the Muslim World. We believe freedom of the press entails responsibility and discretion, and should respect the beliefs and tenets of all religions.”The three signatories to the statement went on to say that the “anguish of the Muslim World” was shared by all individuals and communities who recognize the sensitivity of deeply held religious belief, but called for an immediate end to the violence.“In particular, we strongly condemn the deplorable attacks on diplomatic missions that have occurred in Damascus, Beirut and elsewhere. Aggression against life and property can only damage the image of a peaceful Islam. We call on the authorities of all countries to protect all diplomatic premises and foreign citizens against unlawful attack.”Today’s joint statement on the cartoons is the latest move by the Secretary-General to try and defuse the explosive situation that has led to protests and concerns in many parts of the world.In a separate news release, also issued today, the United Nations mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) urged “all parties to avoid acts and statements that might further inflame the current situation.”“Respect for Afghanistan’s pluralistic culture, values and history, based on Islam, is a fundamental principle of the work of the international community in Afghanistan,” UNAMA added. read more

NHS faces unpalatable decisions about levels of care warns hospitals trade body

first_imgHospitals will have to make “unpalatable” decisions about care levels and jobs unless the NHS gets an increase in funding, the head of one of the service’s largest trade bodies has warned.NHS Providers chief executive Chris Hopson said the health service is “increasingly failing to do the job it wants to do, and the public needs it to do, through no fault of its own”.He warned that senior hospital trust managers face a “stark choice” between investing the money needed or “watching the NHS slowly deteriorate”.He called for “an open, honest, realistic, national debate on what gives” if no more money is made available to health trusts in the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement on November 23. Mr Hopson’s intervention comes the day before senior NHS England directors face the Commons health select committee.Professor Keith Willett, director for acute care, and Pauline Philip, urgent and emergency care director, will join health minister Philip Dunne in being grilled by MPs.It also sits against a background of junior doctors planning week-long walkouts in October, November and December in protest over a new contract. Mr Hopson, whose organisation is the trade association for acute hospital, ambulance, community and mental health services in the NHS, suggested that if there is no more money available it could lead to rationing of care, shutting down some services, formally relaxing performance targets, increasing charges, and “more explicitly controlling the size of the NHS workforce”.He added: “These are all approaches adopted by other public services such as prisons, local government and the police when faced with similar funding challenges over the past decade – though they would clearly provoke public unease and ministerial anxiety if applied to the NHS.”A Department of Health spokesman said: “We know the NHS is under pressure because of our ageing population, but we rightly expect the service to continue to ensure that patients get treated quickly.” We face a stark choice of investing the resources required to keep up with demand or watching the NHS slowly deteriorateChris Hopson, NHS Providerscenter_img He told The Observer: “Thanks to the dedication of staff, NHS performance rarely goes off the edge of a cliff. As the 1990s showed, instead we get a long, slow decline that is only fully visible in retrospect.”It’s therefore difficult to isolate a single point in that downward trajectory to sound a warning bell.”But NHS trust bosses are now ringing that bell – we face a stark choice of investing the resources required to keep up with demand or watching the NHS slowly deteriorate.”Trusts will, of course, do all they can to deliver efficiency savings and productivity improvements. But they are now saying it is impossible to provide the right quality of service and meet performance targets on the funding available.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Google News une nouvelle fois condamné en Belgique

first_imgGoogle News une nouvelle fois condamné en BelgiqueCondamné une première fois en 2007, Google News a une nouvelle fois perdu son procès contre les éditeurs de presse belges représentés par la société de gestion des droits d’auteurs Copiepresse. Accusé de publier des contenus sans l’autorisation de leurs auteurs, le portail d’actualités de Google a été débouté par la cour d’Appel de Bruxelles.En 2007, Google News avait été condamné en première instance pour avoir publié des articles issus de journaux belges, tels que Le Soir, L’Echo, ou La Libre Belgique, sans autorisation. Après avoir cessé de diffuser les contenus des journaux membres de la société Copiepress, et décidé de ne plus référencer du tout certains titres belges, Google a fait appel de ce jugement. Mais le groupe a une nouvelle fois été condamné le 6 mai dernier, rapporte le site ZDnet.Si le géant de la recherche sur Internet assure que son référencement est tout à fait légal, le tribunal a tranché en faveur des plaignants. Une décision que Google affirme être en train d’étudier afin de “définir les mesures éventuelles à prendre”. Comme le soutient le porte-parole Al Verney, “le référencement avec des titres brefs et des liens directs vers les sources est non seulement légal, mais encourage aussi les utilisateurs à lire les journaux en ligne”. Alors que la firme envisage un pourvoi en cassation, CopiePress dit espérer que le géant de Moutain View “aura l’intelligence de rechercher une solution équitable pour mettre fin à cette situation”.Le 9 mai 2011 à 19:01 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Environmental Study Assesses Impacts of HorseThemed Development at Ft Ord

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR A proposed mixed-use development of 711 acres at the former Fort Ord centered around horse racing presents a variety of challenges, including water availability, the destruction of coastal habitat and other environmental impacts, according to a newly released 2,140-page environmental impact report.To go forward, the city of Seaside, Calif., would need to decide the benefits of the Monterey Downs project outweigh its “significant unavoidable impacts,” according to the report required under California law. The city is processing the project’s application.The project calls for a thoroughbred racetrack and training facility, 6,500-seat arena, nonprofit Monterey Horse Park, a master-planned, mixed-use village with 1,280 housing units, a “Country Walk” commercial center, swim and tennis center, hotels, office space, and open space and habitat preservation areas, reported the Monterey Herald.The availability of water likely would challenge only the last three phases of the project. There are adequate water allocations for the first three phases, allowing those to go ahead — a veterans cemetery, horse park and 473 homes in the first phase; 124 homes in the second phase; and 100,000 square feet of commercial, a 200-room hotel and 5,000 square feet of recreational uses in the third phase.Until more water is secured, the subsequent three phases would remain on hold, covering the race track and arena, half of the residential development and about three-quarters of the commercial development, according to the story. Those phases could go ahead if Seaside were to reallocate water from other projects or if the local water service provider succeeds in recycling additional water or if a seawater desalination project comes to fruition.Many of the hundreds of comments to the draft version of the report came from individuals supporting Monterey Downs.last_img read more

Letting go slowly Govt to divest up to 25 stake in 4

first_imgFile photo of Indian Navy’s Scorpene submarine INS Kalvari being escorted by tugboats as it arrives at Mazagon Docks Ltd, a naval vessel ship building yard, in Mumbai, India, October 29, 2015. REUTERS/Shailesh Andrade/FilesIn a major boost to the Narendra Modi administration’s disinvestment drive to sell equity stakes in profitable PSUs to raise funds, the government is considering selling up to 25 percent of its equity stakes in four state-run defence companies under the control of the department of defence through IPOs (initial public offerings) for sale of shares, the Financial Express reported on Friday.The government is looking to sell stakes in Mazagon Dock Ltd, Bharat Dynamics Ltd, Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers Ltd and Mishra Dhatu Nigam Ltd. It has invited proposals for the IPO by 3 pm on August 18, the daily reported.Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government has been divesting strategic stake in several public and private companies to meet its ambitious Rs 72,500 crore ($11.38 billion) divestment target during the year to March 2018.The government raised Rs 46,247 crore through disinvestment In the last financial year 2016-17, the highest ever amount earned by sale of equity stake in PSUs, though falling short of the original target, as was expected.In this financial year, the government has sold equity stakes in Hindustan Copper through a recently concluded OFS (offer for sale), Cochin Shipyard, HUDCO, L&T (held through SUUTI) and Dredging Corporation, among others.An intensifying processIn fiscal 2018, the government plans to sell 10 percent equity stake each in three major state-run railway companies IRCTC, Ircon and IRFC via IPOs. The Union Cabinet has also approved listing of five state-run general insurance companies, which is likely to begin only in the next financial year with the first listing possible by September-October. The government is also reportedly looking at selling 10 percent equity stake each in capital goods major Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd and energy company Oil India Ltd.Financial portal Moneycontrol.com said on Friday that the government is gradually selling its stake in companies held through SUUTI (Specified Undertaking of Unit Trust of India) in the open market. The government has mulled selling SUUTI’s equity holdings several times, and is also reportedly considering including SUUTI stakes in its proposed next CPSE ETF – the exchange-traded fund of public sector enterprises – which it plans to launch in the current financial year 2017-18, Moneycontrol said.In June, the government sold 2.5 percent equity stake in engineering major Larsen & Toubro held through its investment arm SUUTI for more than Rs 4,000 crore. In February, SUUTI sold 2 percent from its 11.7 percent equity stake held in tobacco major ITC Ltd in a block deal for reportedly Rs 6,700 crore. State-run insurer AMC Life Insurance Corp of India was the buyer in the deal.Previously, in 2014, SUUTI sold 9 percent equity stake in Axis Bank, raising Rs 5,500 crore in the process.last_img read more

Building block of thermal computer operates at 600 K

first_img Sidy Ndao and Mahmoud Elzouka, University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Engineering, developed this thermal diode that may allow computers to use heat as an alternate energy source. Credit: Karl Vogel /University of Nebraska-Lincoln Engineering Illustration and scanning electron micrographs of the NanoThermoMechanical rectifier. Credit: Elzouka and Ndao. Published in Nature Scientific Reports. The entire device consists of 24 pairs of moving and fixed terminals, along with two thin-film platinum microheaters that independently control and measure the temperatures of each pair of terminals. When the fixed terminal is hotter than the moving terminal, the gap is large, resulting in a low heat transfer rate. When the moving terminal becomes hotter than the fixed terminal, the moving terminal moves closer to the fixed terminal and the gap decreases, leading to a higher heat transfer rate. At this scale, the heat transfer physically occurs due to a process called near-field thermal radiation, which results mainly from the tunneling of evanescent surface waves between two closely spaced surfaces. This demonstration is the first time that near-field thermal radiation has been used to operate a thermal diode at high temperatures. Doing this has been difficult due to the technical challenges in controlling the nanoscale gap.Tests showed that the thermal diode can operate at temperatures of up to 600 K, and the researchers expect that higher temperatures with improved performance are possible through design optimization. Another benefit of the method is that the thermal diode can be easily implemented, as it does not require exotic materials but instead uses standard techniques already known to the semiconductor industry. Explore further Journal information: Scientific Reports (Phys.org)—Researchers have built the hottest thermal diode to date, which operates at temperatures of more than 600 K (326 °C). Thermal diodes may serve as the building blocks of future thermal computers, which could run at temperatures at which today’s electronic computers would quickly overheat and stop working. The researchers, Assistant Professor Sidy Ndao and graduate student Mahmoud Elzouka at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Department of Mechanical & Materials Engineering, have published a paper on the NanoThermoMechanical diode in a recent issue of Nature’s Scientific Reports.”We have demonstrated the building block of what could be the thermal computer of the future, and it works at very high temperatures,” Ndao told Phys.org. “For someone who also actively works in electronics cooling, it makes you wonder ‘What if we stopped cooling electronics all together?'”Unlike electronics, NanoThermoMechanical memory and logic devices use heat instead of electricity to record and process data; hence they can operate in harsh environments where electronics typically fail. A few examples include the exploration of planet Venus with average temperature over 400 °C, and deep-Earth drilling for petroleum and geothermal energies. Also equally important is the opportunity that this technology presents for waste heat recovery with the development of thermal batteries.”The function of a thermal diode is to allow heat to flow primarily in one direction but not the other, similar to how an electronic diode allows electric current to flow primarily in one direction. This ability to control the direction of flow enables diodes to produce two distinct levels of a signal, forming the basis for the “0” and “1” binary logic levels.The new thermal diode achieves two distinct levels of heat flow by controlling the distance between two surfaces: a moving terminal and a stationary terminal. The researchers showed that changing the relative temperatures of the two terminals changes the gap size between them, which changes the amount of heat transfer, which in turn depends on the direction of heat flow. Thermal memory thrives at extremely high temperatures More information: Mahmoud Elzouka and Sidy Ndao. “High Temperature Near-Field NanoThermoMechanical Rectification.” Scientific Reports.

(Sarah Wong/Dutch National Opera via AP) Aix marks the spot where Pierre Audi is planting his next flag in a lifelong crusade for innovation and diversity in the performing arts, passions that trace back to his boyhood in Lebanon.The celebrated opera director and arts programmer, wrapping up a 30-year tenure at the Dutch National Opera, is taking charge of the monthlong Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, one of Europe’s oldest and most respected summer music festivals.What’s more, he’s also keeping his job as artistic director of New York’s Park Avenue Armory and also undertaking some high-profile directing assignments, starting with Wagner’s “Parsifal” to open this year’s Munich Opera Festival.Some might think this demanding schedule would pull him in conflicting directions, but Audi doesn’t see it that way.“I know my journey must sound bizarre to people. They think I’m either a lunatic or a charlatan,” Audi said in an interview at his third-floor office in the Armory recently. “But for me, I don’t regard it as many things. It’s all one stream.”That “stream” is a dedication to the performing arts, with an emphasis on risk-taking and combining diverse forms and cultural influences to attract new audiences.He began doing that in 1980 when — fresh from studying history at Oxford — he founded the Almeida Theatre in London in a decaying Victorian-era library and lecture hall. Audi staged festivals of avant-garde plays and music, transforming the space into one of the city’s most respected venues — and in the process helping turn the rundown Islington neighbourhood into one of London’s priciest.“The only mistake I made was I never bought a flat near the theatre, which I now regret,” Audi said.The idea of working in an unconventional space came naturally to Audi because growing up in Lebanon, where he lived until his family moved to Paris and then London, “there was no theatre, no place to do anything.“So I saw a lot of things in Roman ruins, open-air antiquities,” he said. “They framed the performance, they were the decor. So for me that is sufficient. If you have a slice of history the audience can dream in that framework.”That’s one reason he took the job at the Armory, where the 55,000-square-foot drill hall can be reconfigured to fit just about any presentation. “Again, it’s a salvage space,” he said, “which in its nakedness can frame a play, a dance, an opera, a concert without additions but by managing the space.”The “Parsifal” production, starring tenor Jonas Kaufmann in the title role and soprano Nina Stemme as Kundry, will be in a more conventional venue at the National Theater, home of the Bavarian State Opera. This marks the second time Audi has directed Wagner’s last work, and he came to the project in a roundabout way.The company’s intendant, Nikolaus Bachler, had commissioned artist Georg Baselitz to design the sets, “and it was almost impossible to find a director willing to take on someone else’s idea,” Audi said. He agreed because of his friendship with Baselitz.“I don’t need to do ‘my’ ‘Parsifal.’ I need to serve Georg’s vision,” he said. He declined to discuss in detail what that vision is other than to say it’s “quite a minimalistic production with abstract sets. He wants it to be very mysterious … but exactly how it will be articulated in terms of light and action is something we will find out at the end of June,” when it opens.Audi’s first “Parsifal” offered a bleak ending, but he won’t be repeating himself. “I think in this version I won’t make the chorus die,” he said with a smile.He’ll also direct an opera by Hungarian composer Gyorgy Kurtag based on Samuel Beckett’s “Endgame” for Milan’s La Scala in November. And he’ll return to his old company in Amsterdam for a production in June 2019 of parts of Karlheinz Stockhausen’s seven-opera cycle “Licht.” That staging, spread over three evenings, will take place not in the opera house but in a circular industrial building.Audi said he has no plans to direct operas at Aix, but he will be “commissioning a lot of new works, fostering new talent and transmitting a love of the arts to a new generation,” things his predecessor, Bernard Foccroulle, has made a priority during his 20 years in charge. Foccroulle remains in place through the 2018 season, and Audi will announce plans for the future on July 6.One project especially dear to his heart is the festival’s Mediterranean Youth Orchestra, which brings together promising musicians from countries in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, including his native Lebanon.“We can’t just sit back and continue to make Western opera as if the rest of the society hasn’t moved,” he said. “A lot of these countries need to express sometimes very painful messages. Music and poetry can be a powerful vehicle.”Audi, 60, will continue to make his home in Amsterdam, where his two young children are in school. But he said he decided to accept the Aix assignment because “I’ve always been fascinated by festivals,” where “there is no routine, instead there are surprises.”“The great thing about Aix is that it’s a risk-taking festival,” he said, “and there is no such thing as a festival without risks.”center_img by Mike Silverman, The Associated Press Posted May 23, 2018 5:23 am PDT Last Updated May 23, 2018 at 6:20 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emaillast_img read more

Given the intensity of its campaign,it was expected that it would leave rivals such as the National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) far behind in the race File image of NSUI members Facebook However Wednesday’s results sprang quite a surprise The Congress-backed NSUI won the crucial posts of president and vice-president The ABVP had to settle for the posts of secretary and joint secretary The NSUI has managed to win the important post of president after four years The ABVP onthe other hand has been a dominant force in the University for the past four years at a stretch Its growing prominence in the campus politics roughly coincides with the BJP’s resounding victory in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections under Narendra Modi ABVP made a clean sweep in the 2014 DUSU elections by bagging all the four central panel posts The credit for that victory was given to the ‘Modi wave’ and the ‘good work’ of the then three-month old government In 2015 ABVP continued its strong show by again winning all the four posts It maintained its dominance in the DUSU till 2016 bagging three seats including that of the president Meanwhile the NSUI managed a toehold by winning the joint secretary’s post last year Only a week ago barring the CPI-backed AISF the Left unions – SFI AISA and DSA – formed a coalition The alliance dubbed ‘Left Unity’ was aimed at defeating the ABVP in JNU Although the University is known to be a Left bastion a spate of incidents relating to ideology over the last one yearhad created the impression that the RSS-backed body was in the ascendancy and that it would win over freshconverts in herdsThe results prove otherwise Worse it conveyed that the student community was getting disenchanted with its brand of combative politics All the top four posts were bagged by the Left Unity – president and vice-president by AISA general secretary by SFI and joint secretary by DSF ABVP ended up second in the race Last year ABVP candidate Saurabh Sharma had managed to bag the joint secretary post in JNUSU The ABVP had claimed that on the basis of its ‘pro-student issues’ and consistent ‘developmental work’ on JNU campus it would defeat the Left as students have got over the ‘Communist narratives’ With the NDA government at the Centre they expected to repeat the feat of 2000 when ABVP candidate Sandeep Mahapatra had bagged the president’s post for the first and the last time in JNUSU history "Today’s victory of the NSUI at DUSU is a mandate against Modi’s policies and the RSS-ABVP agenda of saffronisation of university campuses The results of Rajasthan University Panjab University and now Delhi University shows how the students have rejected them Amid strong positioning of the ABVP the victory of the NSUI also reflects the trust reposed by the youth on Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi" NSUI’s national media in-charge Neeraj Mishra told Firstpost Prior to JNU and DU students’ polls in the elections in Rajasthan University the ABVP came a cropper losing all three major seats Whilethe president post was won by an independent candidate NSUI bagged vice-president and general secretary posts ABVP had to remain satisfied with the joint secretary post It was a big blow for the ABVP as BJP is in power in Rajasthan Similarly in Panjab University’s student polls NSUI won three posts including that of the president Besides its success in the campuses the Congress seems to be making grounds for a comeback especially after a thumping victory in the Punjab Assembly election RajPb & now resounding victory of @nsui is a rejection of false
