Top UN official calls for development new deal

26 May 2009The current global economic crisis – the deepest in decades – has underscored the need for a “new deal” for development that addresses both climate change and poverty, the head of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) said today. The worldwide financial turmoil is exacerbating the effects of high food and energy prices which drove as many as 200 million people into extreme poverty in recent years, said UNDP Administrator Helen Clark.“Alas, those least responsible for the crisis stand to bear the brunt of its impact over the longer term,” she told the annual session of the Executive Board of UNDP and the UN Population Fund (UNFPA).Simultaneously, the world’s poorest are also bearing the brunt of climate change, linked to the world’s unsustainable use of natural resources, said Miss Clark, the former Prime Minister of New Zealand.“These global problems reflect our interdependence, and they require global solutions,” she stated, calling for a multilateral system that will boost the standard of living for the most vulnerable people and ensure their voices are taken into account by decision-makers.The financial crisis, the Administrator said in her first address to the Executive Board since assuming her position earlier this year, is threatening to roll back gains made towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), eight ambitious anti-poverty targets with a 2015 deadline.For example, some sub-Saharan African nations are on target to meet some of the MDGs, but not all by 2015, and the recession could drive up the number of people living in extreme poverty in the region, she noted.Despite aid commitments for Africa made by donor nations, the pledges remain unfulfilled, Miss Clark said, voicing hope that this year’s meeting of the Group of Eight (G-8) industrialized nations will mobilize resources.The global response to climate change should also be folded into development, she said. Countries are expected to conclude a new pact on curbing greenhouse gas emissions, to replace the Kyoto Protocol whose first commitment period ends in 2012, at a UN conference in Copenhagen later this year.“To this end, UNDP must step up its work this year to support developing countries achieve an outcome at Copenhagen in December which is consistent with designing a sustainable path out of poverty and for achieving the MDGs,” the Administrator said. “The deal to be sealed at Copenhagen must be a development deal, too.” read more

Security Council to hold talks tomorrow on Darfur crisis in Sudan

The consultations, announced today by UN spokesman Fred Eckhard, will take place a week after Council members received a report from Secretary-General Kofi Annan on the latest situation in Darfur and were also briefed on the issue by Mr. Annan’s Special Representative for Sudan, Jan Pronk.Yesterday Mr. Annan told reporters that “more can and should be done” to improve security in Darfur, where at least 1.2 million people are internally displaced and another 200,000 live as refugees in neighbouring Chad, largely because of attacks by armed militias allied to Khartoum.In his report he proposed expanding the size of the force of African Union (AU) monitors in Darfur, an impoverished region the size of France that has been beset by conflict since two rebel groups took up arms against Khartoum early last year.In Nigeria, AU mediators are meeting separately with representatives of the Sudanese Government and two rebel groups – the Sudan Liberation Army (SLA) and the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) – to discuss a draft protocol on security. If the parties can accept the draft, then the mediators plan to meet with them together to sign off on the protocol. The talks in Abuja, which are being attended by UN officials, cover four issues: humanitarian, security, political, and social and economic matters.In other humanitarian developments:The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have launched a measles vaccination campaign for 150,000 children not reached by a previous scheme in June.Preliminary figures released by the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) show that Darfur accounts for 40 per cent of all Sudanese cases of fistula – a devastating condition resulting when obstructed labour causes tears in the area between the vagina and rectum of a pregnant mother. read more

Ban meets Ukrainian minister discusses conflict Minsk accord

The two discussed the UN’s humanitarian and human rights work in affected areas and they agreed on the need for urgent and full implementation of the 12 February ‘Package of Measures for the implementation of the Minsk Agreement,’ including a lasting and durable cease-fire and immediate withdrawal of heavy weaponry.Last week, the Council endorsed the so-called ‘Package of Measures’ with the unanimous adoption of Resolution 2202 (2015) and called on all parties to the conflict to fully implement the cessation of hostilities, as the UN human rights office expressed concern over reported shelling and trapped civilians in the country’s east.Measures outlined in the text also included the withdrawal of all foreign armed formations, military equipment and mercenaries from the territory of Ukraine under the monitoring of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), as well as the disarmament of all illegal groups.On the subject of a peacekeeping mission in eastern Ukraine, the Secretary-General noted that the UN would be guided by the Security Council on the matter and reiterated his full support toward a peaceful resolution of the conflict. read more

Retail industry still experiencing difficulties

first_imgWe hope that with the Budget now out of the way, and most pay packets left relatively unchanged, growth in consumer spending will resume.He said that there were signs of recovery over the summer, and “there remains a renewed sense of optimism amongst retailers that the market will start to grow again”.But with total sales down by over a quarter since the end of the boom, today’s figures “remind us how far we need to go before the retail sector is returned to health”, said Lynam.Meanwhile, ISME, the Irish Small & Medium Enterprises Association has repeated its demand for the Government to address the risks to the retail sector and to implement immediate policies to secure the 250,000 jobs in the industry.ISME Chief Executive, Mark Fielding, said that today’s figures, “confirm, once again, the disastrous situation in which the majority of small and medium retailers find themselves”.He called on the government to address the high costs to retailers, including upward-only rents.“What is required is a Retail Strategy Group to advise on a clear road map, which will provide confidence to both consumers and small business, allowing for increased spending and investment,” said Fielding.Read: People spent less on groceries in run-up to Budget announcement> THE RETAIL INDUSTRY in Ireland is still experiencing difficulties, two retail groups have said today.One group is now calling on the Government to address the high costs to retailers, such as upward-only rents.Retail Ireland, the Ibec group that represents the retail sector, said that the retail industry “is still experiencing some difficulty” after CSO figures showed that the value of sales, excluding motor trades and bars, fell by 1.7 per cent  in September compared with the same month last year.The figures show that the overall retail sales volume increased by 0.5 per cent in September 2013 but there was a decrease in the annual figure of 0.3 per cent.Retail Ireland Director Stephen Lynam noted that the numbers show a fall in sales for supermarkets, department stores, pharmacies, furniture stores, petrol stations and electrical outlets.But when it came to increases, those that experienced more sales were book shops, clothing stores, specialist food stores and hardware shops.“Undoubtedly, speculation about the impact of the Budget led to people spending less in September,” suggested Lynam.last_img read more

Skagit collapse papers Did pole strike bridge

first_imgThe oversize load that struck the Skagit River Bridge was part of an oil drilling rig headed from Alberta, Canada, to Thompson Metal Fab in Vancouver’s Columbia Business Center. The load was to be consolidated with the rest of a barge shipment and shipped to a customer’s site in the far northern oil fields.SEATTLE — A pilot driver escorting an oversize load that triggered an Interstate 5 bridge collapse north of Seattle told investigators that the clearance pole mounted on her car never hit the structure. But in documents released by federal investigators Wednesday, one witness reported seeing the pole strike the Skagit River Bridge several times. The National Transportation Safety Board will have to sort through the conflicting accounts as it determines what likely caused the May 23, 2013, collapse. The agency, expected to release its final report this summer, made public more than 2,000 pages of documents, including interviews, cellphone logs and incident reports.A section of the span fell after a truck carrying a tall load hit the bridge in Mount Vernon, 60 miles north of Seattle. Two other vehicles fell into the river, and three people were rescued with minor injuries. William Scott, who was driving the truck with the tall load, told investigators that a freight truck “came up very fast on the left” and “squeezed me as we were coming to the bridge.” He told investigators that he moved his vehicle to the right, which had a lower vertical clearance than the center lane, the NTSB said.last_img read more

Haines Freeride 2016 Its been a powerful competition

first_imgExtreme skiers and snowboarders sped down Haines mountains Monday in the fourth stop of the Freeride World Tour. The international alpine sports tournament made the long trek back to Haines after its Alaska debut last year. It hasn’t been totally smooth sailing – Haines poses challenges athletically and logistically.Download AudioA skier pulls off a flip during the Haines competition. (Photo courtesy of Freeride World Tour)“Hello and welcome to the fourth stop of the Freeride World Tour,” commentator Ed Leigh introduced the competition.“Back in Haines, Alaska. Dream coming true for all of us,” said co-commentator Martin Winkler.On Monday morning, athletes in bright pink and yellow snow gear got ready to tackle a steep, mountain face near Little Jarvis Glacier. Videographers circled in helicopters. But fans were left in the dark. The Freeride’s livestream, which broadcasts the competition around the world, wasn’t working because of a satellite problem.“It’s painful to have this happen,” said Freeride spokesman Tom Winter. “But it’s a learning process, working in an environment like Haines.”Despite the livestream troubles, organizers decided to go ahead with the competition.Men’s snowboarders were the first to start. Frenchman Armond was followed by American and first-time Freeride competitor Jonathan Penfield.“I crashed at the top of my of run,” Penfield said after the competition. “But I had a really enjoyable ride the rest of the way down.”Penfield says Alaska presents unique challenges for the riders. It’s all backcountry here, there are no ski resorts with lifts to help athletes practice. That requires a helicopter.“Normally you’re able to warm up riding a few days before, but for me today was the first time I snowboarded in a week,” he said.Penfield was up against Austrian Flo Orley, who is in his 16th and last year competing.“I did a pretty fast top part, at the lower base I took a little bit too much speed and flew 25 meters plus…and landed it,” Orley said.He took the bronze medal for his run in Haines. Orley was happy with that, but disappointed his friends and fans in Europe were left without a livestream. He says the livestream is more than just a play-by-play video. It’s helped people understand and take the sport more seriously.“I became a pro in 2000 and then we were considered crazy idiots, extreme people who would throw ourselves off cliffs hoping to survive,” Orley said. “And the funny thing is, now 16 years later I do exactly the same thing, but we’re regarded as proper sportsmen. So the whole society, there was a big change. And the livestream has helped to make this change obvious to everyone.”An Alaskan guest athlete, also known as a wild card, took the gold in the men’s snowboarding. Ryland Bell showed his familiarity with Haines terrain by racking up a score of 95 out of 100. But since he won’t be competing in the finals in Verbier, American Sammy Luebke is going into that event with the top spot.Rookie Logan Pehota of Canada took the top score in the men’s ski category. He was joined by French Loic Collomb-Patton and American Drew Tabke in the top three.As for the female snowboarders, Swiss Anne-Flore Marxer made what commentator Leigh said was the most impressive line he’s seen in a long time from snowboard women.“And she’s going big! That was a winning line,” exclaimed Leigh.Marxer took first place in her category. Her friend, Austrian Eva Walkner, took the gold in women’s skiing. Marxer told KHNS before the competition that she doesn’t strategize her runs, she just goes out and has fun.“Me, I’m just so glad to be here,” Marxer said. “I want to make sure to have a good time so that at the end of my one day of competing, I’ll remember the amazing, exciting, speed and make the most out of it for my own memories.”Italian skier Arianna Tricomi created her first Alaska skiing memories this week. The rookie skier put up a fight against the more experienced Walkner. She earned third place in her category.“The way the mountains are, it’s different,” Tricomi said. “They’re big, they’re powerful. And just being in this place, it’s far away, in the middle of nature. It’s been a powerful competition.”Tricomi says the power and beauty that comes from the remote mountains is enough to make the challenges they present worth it. Apparently, Freeride organizers agree. Haines Tourism Director Leslie Ross says it’s likely that they’ll come back next year.The athletes who scored the best here will go on to compete in the finals in Verbier, Switzerland, April 2.The Haines tourism department is hoping to set up a viewing of the Freeride competition this week at the library and a local bar.last_img read more

LONDON – Its the time of year when film enthusias

first_img LONDON – It’s the time of year when film enthusiasts turn into industry experts to handicap the Oscars race — and Duran Duran keyboardist Nick Rhodes is no different.Rhodes takes his Oscar predictions seriously — so much so that he has been putting them on the band’s website for about a decade, with detailed commentary.“I love to watch movies. I’ve always watched them since I was a kid and it’s very much part of my agenda to see things. It’s part of the fabric of pop culture. A big part of it,” Rhodes said in an interview with The Associated Press this week.Rhodes started doing predictions with Katy Krassner, the content director of the Duran Duran website, about 15 years ago for fun.“We’d have a chat about it before the Oscars and just talk about who was likely to win and how the Academy (was) going to vote strategically and all those, all those things. And she said one day, ‘Why don’t we just do this for the website? I think the fans would probably really like it. It’s a little different, little quirky,’” he recalled. “And so we did one and it became very popular.”The tradition was created, and they’ve been doing it for about 10 years. The predictions are written in the third person with fun banter, and an audio version is also done for the website.Rhodes and Krassner break down who they think should win, then talk about who they think will actually take home the prize.“I think that it’s pretty obvious that people do vote strategically. I mean there’s always the delineation between best director and best film. Well why wouldn’t it be the same person? Because if the best film wins surely the director who directed that in theory must be the best director,” he said. “But I think it gets split down into these micro-categories now doesn’t it?”Like many film experts, Rhodes predictions the best picture Oscar will go to “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”The Oscars will be handed out on Sunday night in Los Angeles.___Online:Nick & Katy’s 2018 Oscar Picks!!___For full coverage of awards season, visit: https://apnews.com/tag/AwardsSeason by Adam Egan, The Associated Press Posted Mar 2, 2018 9:28 am PDT Last Updated Mar 2, 2018 at 11:01 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – This March 30, 2011 file photo shows Nick Rhodes of the band Duran Duran in New York.
