UN marks 41st anniversary of death of second SecretaryGeneral Dag Hammarskjöld

Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Chief of Staff, Iqbal Riza, represented him at the ceremony outside the Meditation Room, which Mr. Hammarskjöld himself helped design.Mr. Hammarskjöld, who served as Secretary-General from 1953 to 1961, is widely viewed to have pioneered new roads for the UN in the course of efforts to prevent war and serve the other aims of the Charter. In the Middle East these included continuing diplomatic activity in support of the Armistice Agreements between Israel and the Arab States, assisting in the peaceful solution of the Suez Canal dispute, organizing the UN Observation Group in Lebanon and establishing an office of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General in Jordan in 1958.In 1955, following his visit to Peking, 15 detained American fliers who had served under the UN Command in Korea were released by the Chinese People’s Republic. Mr. Hammarskjöld also travelled to many countries of Africa, Asia, Europe, the Americas and the Middle East. In 1960, after President Joseph Kasa-Vubu and Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba of the Republic of the Congo sent a cable asking for the “urgent dispatch” of UN military assistance, the Secretary-General addressed the Security Council at a night meeting and asked that body to act with “utmost speed” in response. The UN then established a Force in Congo, and Secretary-General Hammarskjöld personally travelled to the country four times, including the final flight in September 1961 which took his life.In his last address to the staff, only days previously, Mr. Hammarskjöld said, “We all know that if we feel that what we do is purposeful, not to say essential for the progress of men and human society in a broader sense – yes, even if we believe that what we do is essential only for a small group of people and its future happiness – we are willing to accept hardships and serve gladly for the value of serving.” read more

At UN debate Afghan President highlights country as testament to multilateral cooperation

“It was a little over a decade ago when many countries from across the world joined the Afghan people in our struggle for peace and against the forces of extremism and terrorism. At the time, Afghanistan was a country decimated in all regards,” President Karzai told the Assembly’s General Debate, which started at UN Headquarters in New York today.“For decades, we had suffered unnoticed from violence, deprivation, and from sinister foreign interference,” he added. “Long before terrorism struck the world as a common security threat, Afghans were the victims of the atrocity of terrorist networks from different parts of the world that had made Afghanistan their haven.” Afghan authorities are currently working with the international community so that by 2014 they can assume full responsibility for security in all of the country’s 34 provinces. They are also working towards taking greater ownership of development in a country where more than one-third of the population lives below the poverty line, and one in every two children under five is chronically malnourished.The United Nations has a Security Council-mandated political mission in the country – the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) – focussed on two main areas of activities: political affairs and development and humanitarian issues. In his statement, President Karzai flagged Afghanistan’s transformation over the past decade, noting that democracy has taken root, health services are accessible to the majority of the population, and millions of students – boys and girls – are enrolled in primary and higher education.“Our achievements have not come about easily, and the true aspirations of the Afghan people for peaceful, prosperous lives are yet to be realized,” he said. “As the world’s fight against terrorism continues unabated, the Afghan people continue to pay the biggest price any nation has paid – in both life and treasure.”In relation to terrorism in the Central Asian nation, President Karzai noted that terrorism is not, and never was, rooted in Afghan villages and towns, with its sources and support networks existing beyond the country’s borders. “Therefore, while the international community’s security is being safeguarded from the threat of terrorism, the people of Afghanistan must no longer be made to pay the price and endure the brunt of the war,” he said.He added, “It is in deference to the immense sacrifices of the Afghan people, and the precious lives lost from the international community, that the campaign against terrorism must be taken to the sources of terrorism and must be result-oriented.”The President stated that, with peace being the “utmost desire” of the Afghan people, the country’s authorities have initiated a peace and reconciliation process which aims to bring all elements of the country’s armed opposition into society. He reiterated that his “hand of peace and reconciliation” remains extended not only to the Taliban, but also to all other armed opposition groups that wish to return to “dignified, peaceful and independent lives in their own homeland.”“What we ask of them in return is simple: an end to violence, cutting ties with terrorist networks, preserving the valuable gains of the past decade, and respecting our Constitution,” the President noted, adding that to help facilitate the peace process, he was asking the Security Council to extend its full support to the Afghan Government’s efforts. “In particular, I urge the 1988 Taliban’s Sanctions Committee to take more active measures towards delisting of Taliban leaders as a step to facilitate direct negotiations,” he added.The Afghan leader also cited the role that neighbouring Pakistan could play in his country’s path to peace, noting its implications for Pakistan’s own security, and the security of the wider region and beyond.“We are deeply committed to our brotherly relations with Pakistan, but are aware of the challenges that may strain our efforts at building trust and confidence,” President Karzai said. “Such incidents as the recent shelling of Afghan villages risk undermining the efforts by both governments to work together in the interest of our common security.”Other issues covered in President Karzai’s statement to the General Debate included religious intolerance, the situation in Syria, the plight of the Palestinian people and UN reform. Afghanistan’s President is one of scores of heads of State and government and other high-level officials presenting their views and comments on issues of individual national and international relevance at the Assembly’s General Debate, which ends on 1 October.President Karazai also met with Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday. The UN chief congratulated him and the Afghan people on the clear, strong message from the international community of its continued commitment to Afghanistan after 2014, as elaborated over the past four months at a NATO Summit in Chicago, a Kabul Ministerial meeting and a conference in Tokyo.Mr. Ban said the international community and Afghanistan must now work together to ensure that the mutual commitments made at those events materialize so as to bring tangible benefits to the people of Afghanistan. He also highlighted the importance of a sound political transition, including in terms of the next Afghan polls, progress on peace and reconciliation and regional cooperation – processes on which the United Nations stands ready to support. read more

Tenova TAKRAF completes largest bucketwheel installation in Asia at Zhahanoer mine

first_imgOpen pit mining and underground solutions provider, Tenova TAKRAF, has completed the supply and installation of a complete bucket wheel excavator (BWE) system for the Zhahanaoer open pit coal mine in Inner Mongolia, China. The system, which features the largest bucket wheel excavator – conveyor – spreader combination of its kind in Asia, was inaugurated with a celebration held on site in late November 2014, attended by representatives of the client, CPI Mongdong Energy Group. The inauguration followed successful performance testing, which confirmed the high efficiency and reliability of the entire system and exceeded the expectations of all parties.The system consists of a large-scale bucket wheel excavator SRs 2000 (rated capacity 6,600 m3/h) with loading unit, a 7,750 m long conveyor system consisting of five flights as well as a compact spreader with tripper car on rails. The BWE reaches a 30 m digging height, and although it has a service weight of about 3,300 t, it has a ground pressure much lower than that of a D11 dozer. In order to properly handle peak capacities the conveyor system as well as the spreader have a design capacity of 7,900 m³/h. Those conveyors running along the excavator bench and along the waste dump are shiftable.The project commenced in September 2009 with the BWE, spreader and conveyor system awarded in three stages from 2009 to 2011. The complete turnkey project covered design, supply, transport, on-site installation, commissioning and testing. The project site is located approximately 700 km from Beijing in remote northern China, where the extreme climatic conditions see winter temperatures of down to -40°C and summer temperatures of up to +40°C. Despite this and other highly challenging conditions, the project teams achieved a smooth erection and commissioning process, completing the project on schedule in early November 2014.The project is regarded as an important milestone in the development of China’s mining industry, typified by a trend towards larger scale mines and mining equipment. It also provides a good example of successful German-Chinese cooperation, which was celebrated in an impromptu couplet by the client representative at the inauguration: “Casting a New Chapter of China-Germany Cooperation on the Grassland, Dancing a Big Dragon of Hand-in-hand in Sea of Coal.”For Tenova TAKRAF, the project continues its success with the supply of bucket wheel excavators to China, and follows the delivery of two BWE systems to Yuanbaoshan in the 1990s.last_img read more

Education committee sex ed hearing delayed as not enough senators to reach

first_img Image: Google Maps The gates of Leinster House. Image: Google Maps Share111 Tweet Email 10,247 Views THE OIREACHTAS EDUCATION Committee had to delay its hearing on sex ed this afternoon because it didn’t have enough senators present.The session, which was due to start at 3.30pm today, had only four TDs present out of 15 members: Thomas Byrne (FF), Fiona O’Loughlin (FF), Jan O’Sullivan (Labour) and Kathleen Funchion (SF).If the quorum is not reached after 15 minutes of waiting a hearing is usually rescheduled for another time, but an obscure rule was used to prolong the wait.In this time, it’s understood that Senator Paul Daly of Fianna Fáil was contacted and was able to attend the committee hearing.All members of both Houses are entitled to attend hearings and may take an active part in the meeting, but may not vote or move motions or amendments.A number of speakers were due to give evidence to the committee including Cliona Sadlier of the Rape Crisis Network Ireland.Although the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre gave a submission on sex ed to the committee, they were not invited to give evidence today.There’s been a focus on Ireland’s sex ed curriculum in the context of Ireland’s debate on abortion; particularly around the use of contraception, and the teaching of consent in schools.

Speak Greek in March presents two new initiatives

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Five years ago, the Greek Australian community welcomed a new initiative, the campaign ‘Μιλάμε Ελληνικά τον Μάρτιο… και όχι μόνο’ and now that the Greek Diaspora is called to celebrate the International Day for Greek Language, the campaign could not be absent from the celebration. On Saturday 9 February, 6pm, the campaign hosts an event at the Greek Centre (168 Lonsdale Street), launching two new initiatives.During the event, Dr Georgia Nikolaidou from the Greek Consulate will deliver the official address, and two students of Greek, Anna Alexopoulou and Niki Tzempetzi will be awarded with a scholarship, which covers their 2019 tuition fees. “We would like this to be an annnual scolarship, offered to many more students and particularly those who can’t afford Greek school,” says Mr Mike Zafiropoulos AM, who conceived the campaign.The second initiative of the ‘Speak Greek in March’ campaign will be the launch of a new application for smart phones and other devices, called Metropolis.“It is a game, for children between 6 and 12 year old, aiming not only to entertain, but also to give children the opportunity to learn things about Greek language,” Mr Zafiropoulos explains, stressing that the app is addressed to children not only from Australia, but from the whole of the Greek diaspora.“Usually, when we see children toying around with phones, we think badly of them, but now we will say: good on them!”The app is still under development and will continue to be updated after Saturday’s launch. It is developed by one of the Greek Australian community’s brightest minds, 18 year old Fotios Tsouklas, who excels in technology and start up enterpreneurship since his early teens. “I approached him to do an application in Greek and what we do is adapt one of his previous applications to Greek, and to what we wanted its content to be,” Mr Zafiropoulos says.The app will be free to dowonload, while everyone working on it is offering their services pro bono. “We are all volunteers in this campaign,” Mr Zafiropoulos says, “simply because we believe in this cause, to facilitate Greek language learning.”Satisfied with the response the campaign has been met for the past five years, Mr Zafiropoulos describes it as a “marketing ploy” aiming to start a discussion about Greek learning, trying to motivate schools and organisations.He offers one example of his own experience, as a member of the Frontida aged care board, when it was decided that the meeting should be held in Greek, in alignment with the campaign. “While a board meeting requires using specific terminology, we managed to speak Greek,” he remembers.Still, despite positive reactions, there is much room for improvement. “This kind of campaigns can stir enthusiasm, but they are not effective, unless the organisations that have to do with language take over and keep on,” he admits. “We need better coordination, planning, cooperation between institutions.”One solution would be to create a Greek language foundation in Australia, responsible for the coordination of the campaign, with the participation of all stakeholders involved. “We all have a responsibility, particularly the teachers, those who care about Greek language and about the preservation of our culture in Australia.”last_img read more

Les pesticides auraient un impact sur le QI des enfants

first_imgLes pesticides auraient un impact sur le QI des enfantsPlusieurs études publiées aux Etats-Unis font un lien entre l’exposition des femmes enceintes aux pesticides, et une diminution des capacités intellectuelles de leurs enfants. Ces travaux résultent de recherches menées pendant plus de dix ans auprès de mille femmes et leurs enfants.Deux des trois études ont été menées auprès d’habitants de New York, tandis que la dernière a concerné des populations rurales de Californie. Publiés dans Environmental Health Perspectives, les travaux se sont tous penchés sur l’impact des pesticides organophosphorés – les plus fréquemment utilisés pour les cultures de fruits et légumes-, sur les capacités intellectuelles des enfants.Menées pendant une dizaine d’années, les études ont commencé par l’analyse de l’urine de femmes enceintes, puis ont suivi les 392 enfants qu’elles portaient. En Californie, les chercheurs ont mis au jour un impact sensible sur le QI des jeunes enfants. Ils ont en effet “découvert que chaque fois qu’on multiplie par dix la quantité d’organophosphates, pendant une grossesse, le quotient intellectuel baisse de 5,5 points en moyenne chez les enfants de sept ans”. D’importantes différences ont toutefois été observées entre les enfants, en fonction de l’éducation qu’ils reçoivent, du niveau de vie de leur foyer, ou encore de leur exposition à d’autres produits chimiques rejetés dans l’environnement.A New York, les chercheurs du centre hospitalier Mount Sinaï ont étudié l’impact de l’exposition aux pesticides de 400 femmes enceintes sur le QI de leurs enfants. “L’exposition aux organophosphates a des conséquences négatives” sur les capacités sensorielles permettant aux enfants âgés de six à neuf ans de résoudre des situations problématiques, ont-ils conclu.À lire aussiToxoplasmose : symptômes, traitement, grossesse, quels sont les risques ?Quant à la troisième et dernière étude, elle a été réalisée par des scientifiques de l’université de Columbia. Ils se sont intéressés à l’impact de l’organophosphate chlorpyrifos, un insecticide interdit depuis dix ans. Au total, 265 enfants issus des minorités et nés avant cette interdiction ont été suivis. Parmi eux, les 25% qui ont subi la plus grande exposition pré-natale à ce pesticide ont révélé lors des tests des capacités intellectuelles et mémorielles respectivement réduites de 2,7 et 5,5 points.”Ces pertes du fonctionnement cognitif à sept ans pourraient avoir des conséquences sur les résultats scolaires”, souligne Virginie Rauh, l’auteure principale de cette dernière étude. “Les problèmes de mémoire pourraient gêner la compréhension d’un texte écrit et l’acquisition des apprentissages académiques même si l’intelligence reste dans la moyenne”, prévient-elle.Le 23 avril 2011 à 10:59 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Federal judges ask if travel ban is biased against Muslims

first_imgSEATTLE (AP) — Federal judges on Monday peppered a lawyer for President Donald Trump with questions about whether the administration’s travel ban discriminates against Muslims and zeroed in on the president’s campaign statements, the second time in a week the rhetoric has faced judicial scrutiny.Acting Solicitor General Jeffrey Wall, defending the travel ban, told the three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that the executive order should be reinstated because it falls well within the president’s authority.“No one has ever attempted to set aside a law that is neutral on its face and neutral in its operation on the basis of largely campaign trail comments made by a private citizen running for office,” he said.Further, Wall said the president had backed off the comments he made during the campaign, clarifying that “what he was talking about was Islamic terrorist groups and the countries that sponsor or shelter them.”Neal Katyal, who represented Hawaii, a plaintiff in the lawsuit, expressed disbelief at that argument and said Trump had repeatedly spoken of a Muslim ban during the presidential campaign and after.last_img read more

Boeing to pay 100 million to crash families communities

first_imgBoeing said Wednesday that it will provide an “initial investment” of $100 million over several years to help families and communities affected by two crashes of its 737 Max plane that killed 346 people.The Chicago-based company said some of the money will go toward living expenses and to cover hardship suffered by the families of passengers killed in the crashes.Boeing faces dozens of lawsuits over the accidents. Relatives of passengers on a Lion Air Max that crashed off the coast of Indonesia agreed to try to settle through mediation, but families of passengers killed in an Ethiopian Airlines crash are waiting until more is known about the accidents.Preliminary investigations point to the role played by new software that pushed the planes’ noses down. Boeing is updating the software to make it easier for pilots to control, but the company doesn’t expect to submit its work for final regulatory approval until September.Lawyers who are suing Boeing on behalf of passengers’ families said the new $100 million promise won’t stop them from demanding that Boeing provide details about how the plane and the new flight-control software were developed. Some of them discounted the amount of aid.last_img read more

Quad Clears Antitrust Hurdle in World Color Acquisition Process

first_imgFollowing the deal’s completion, Quad intends to become a publicly-traded company.World Color—formally Quebecor World—filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in Canada and the U.S. in early 2008. Last May, fellow printer R.R. Donnelley sent an unsolicited letter to Quebecor expressing interest in purchasing the printer for roughly $1.35 billion. Donnelley upped the offer to $1.83 billion the following month but was effectively turned down by Quebecor’s board of directors, who at the time said that its own $1.5 billion plan of reorganization offered “superior recovery” and contains fewer risks than Donnelley’s offer.Quad’s proposed acquisition still requires approval under the Investment Canada Act as well as other closing conditions. The deal is expected to close sometime this summer. Sussex, Wisconsin-based Quad/Graphics has cleared another hurdle in its quest to acquire fellow magazine printer World Color. The companies have cleared antitrust regulatory requirements in both the U.S. and Canada in relation to Quad’s proposed stock-trade buy-out of World Color.The acquisition could not have proceeded if certain requirements were not met under the U.S. Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act and the Canadian Competition Act.Under terms of the acquisition agreement—which was announced in January—World Color shareholders will receive approximately 40 percent of the outstanding shares of Quad/Graphics at closing and Quad/Graphics shareholders will hold roughly 60 percent. The deal is estimated to be worth $1.4 billion.last_img read more

Onwards and upwards for NSW domestic tourism

first_imgSource = Destination NSW Destination NSW Onwards and upwards for NSW domestic tourismOnwards and upwards for NSW domestic tourismNSW continues to attract more overnight domestic visitors than any other state in Australia, according to the National Visitor Survey released today.Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events Stuart Ayres said Tourism Research Australia’s figures show the Government’s strategy to grow overnight stays is working.“Domestic tourism growth for the year in NSW has seen our State blitz ahead of its rivals with 7 million more visitors than Victoria and nearly 9 million more than Queensland, Mr Ayres said.“In fact, in the June quarter alone, while NSW clocked up more visitors and overnight stays, some other states went backwards. NSW received 7.2 million visitors who stayed 22.5 million nights, while Victoria and Queensland recorded declines.“It’s certainly onwards and upwards for NSW – in the 12 months to June 2016, NSW achieved significant growth in domestic overnight visitors, welcoming 29 million travelers who stayed 93 million nights and spent $16.4 billion,” Mr Ayres said.“NSW continues to lead domestic tourism, with the largest share of Australia’s visitor economy. NSW has had the highest market share of visitors and nights in Australia since the national survey began (YE June 1999) and the highest share of visitor expenditure in Australia for all but one period (YE June 2008).“Regional NSW also achieved its highest number of domestic overnight visitors and expenditure on record, welcoming more than 20 million visitors who spent $9.7 billion. It also recorded the highest number of overnight stays since June 2003, with more than 69 million nights.”Destination NSW Chief Executive Officer Sandra Chipchase said the figures reflect the NSW Government’s hard work to make NSW Australia’s most compelling destination.“From pristine beaches and snowfields to the awe-inspiring country and Outback, NSW is Australia’s most geographically diverse state and offers holiday memories to last a lifetime. Combine that with a world-class calendar of major events and you have the complete visitor experience,” Ms Chipchase said. Destination NSWlast_img read more
