Security arrangements dominate UNbacked talks between DR Congo and rebels

“We have been going into details of elements of the security arrangements such as a ceasefire and cessation of hostilities agreements,” co-mediator and former Tanzanian president Benjamin Mkapa said at the close of today’s discussions. The Nairobi talks, between the Government and the rebel National Congress in Defense of the People (CNDP), began last month with the goal of ending the ongoing conflict, which has uprooted an estimated 250,000 people since late August on top of the 800,000 already displaced in the region, mainly in North Kivu province, which borders Rwanda and Uganda.Mr. Mkapa later met and briefed his co-mediator Olusegun Obasanjo, the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for the Great Lakes Region and former president of Nigeria, who was returning from three days of consultations with key players Kinshasa, Kigali and eastern DRC. The talks are set to resume tomorrow under the chairmanship of the Kenyan Foreign Minister, Moses Wetangula, representing President Mwai Kibaki. 9 January 2009United Nations-backed talks aimed at bringing an end to the deadly conflict between the Government and rebels in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) have been focusing on security matters, including a possible ceasefire, since resuming earlier this week in Nairobi, a senior official said today. read more

Kabir Hashim refuses to fly business class on Srilankan flight

The minister, however, took a selfie with his wife while strapped down in the economy section. Next time a VIP asks for a free upgrade on the national carrier, the answer is a firm “no,” Hashim has said. (Colombo Gazette) State Enterprise Development Minister Kabir Hashim may have set a bad precedent for his cabinet colleagues and directors of the national carrier Sri Lankan airlines who travel business class at tax payers’ expense, the Economy News website reported.When Kabir Hashim and his wife Nazly travelled to neighbouring India this week, they boarded a Sri Lankan flight, but refused an upgrade to business class even though he is the minister in charge of the airline. read more

DR of Congo Annan welcomes approval of multinational emergency force

“The Secretary-General is grateful to France for having assumed the role of lead nation and for contributing roughly half the troops for the force, on which the people of Bunia, and indeed of all of the north-eastern region, count to help them restore normalcy to their lives,” a spokesman for Mr. Annan said in a statement issued in New York.The statement added that with advance elements scheduled to be deployed in a matter of days, and full deployment to begin in two weeks, the multinational force offers the parties in the DRC “a chance to rebuild the peace process” in that country, which is essential to the stability of central Africa.“The Secretary-General urges them to cooperate fully with the force as well as with United Nations peacekeepers in pursuit of that goal,” the statement said. read more

Somalia UN envoy calls for enhanced efforts to promote peace and development

Ambassador Francois Lonsény Fall, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative, asked members of the International Contact Group to consider what additional and better coordinated support the international community might provide to the country’s Transitional Federal Institutions (TFIs). Somalia has not had a functioning government since 1991. A transitional Government was recently set up in Baidoa while forces of the Supreme Council of Islamic Courts took over the Somali capital of Mogadishu. Ambassador Fall called on the international community to urge the TFIs and the Islamic Courts to enter into meaningful dialogue without preconditions, which should lead to a complete cessation of hostilities. read more

Doctor Who Episode 10 What Season Finale Lacks TARDIS Fam Makes Up

first_img This article contains spoilers for “The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos,” episode 10 of Doctor Who season 11.Well, that was a bit disappointing, eh?After nine weeks of alien intruders, historical figures, and parallel worlds, I expected more oomph from this season’s finale—especially after Chris Chibnall’s (spoiler alert!) Broadchurch series one twist.Instead, Whovians were treated on Sunday to just another episode in a series of uneven escapades.Responding to nine distress signals coming from one planet, Team TARDIS meet a conflict-scarred survivor who can’t remember his name and a bleeding heart Ux under the spell of her false god—Tzim-Sha.That’s right, Tim Shaw is back.Jodie Whittaker always brings the element of surprise (via BBC)The toothy villain, last seen fleeing Sheffield for his home planet, landed “halfway across the universe” on Ranskoor Av Kolos.Mistaken by Andinio (Phyllis Logan) as Ux “creator,” the Stenza warrior was nursed back to health, but confined to the bleak planet by a life support machine.Over the next 3,000 years, the Ux serve his demands, using their Jedi-like powers to take revenge on those races that humiliated him by shrinking their planets to the size of trinkets on a shelf.Many have tried—and failed—to fight Tzim-Sha, their ships littering Ranskoor Av Kolos (which translates to “disintegrator of the soul”). Only by tricking Ux Andinio and Delph (Percelle Ascott) into seeing the truth was the ever-clever Doctor able to triumph.Graham (Bradley Walsh) and Paltraki (Mark Addy) are on a mission (via BBC)“The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos” is by no means bad: Mark Addy’s turn as the slightly sinister Paltraki (I spent much of the hour sure he’d turn out to be the bad guy) was another guest-star triumph; the Game of Thrones actor brings a certain paternal charm to the team.And while Yaz was criminally underused this entire series, it was nice to see her and the Doctor team up for an inspiring girl-power rescue.But where was the heart-pounding action? The edge-of-my-seat excitement? The I-still-tear-up-thinking-of-Rose-and-the-Doctor-parting emotion?This story—which, just as the series opener, was written by Chris Chibnall and directed by Jamie Childs—comes full circle, giving some closure to Grace’s tragic death in the premiere.Criminally underused Yaz (Mandip Gill) (via BBC)But Graham’s steely determination to avenge his wife and kill Tim Shaw felt somewhat out of place, even as a character development. More than just the comic relief, Bradley Walsh is a surprisingly capable actor, often serving as the group’s moral anchor.So there’s no question of whether he can play vengeful. The question, however, is whether he should.I did wonder if Graham would actually go through with it; whether he would ignore the Doctor’s warning (pull that trigger and you’re off the team) and become an intergalactic killer (no thanks to Ryan’s saccharine confession).Ux Delph (Percelle Ascott) is basically a Jedi in training (via BBC)In the end, something was missing. Something big. Maybe Chibnall’s saving it for New Year’s Day? Maybe he didn’t want to leave on a cliffhanger he may not have returned to conclude? (More on that later.)Either way, showrunner Chibnall, producer Matt Strevens, Thirteenth Doctor Jodie Whittaker, and the entire cast and crew of Doctor Who deserve a pat on the back.They have imbued a real sense of magic, modernity, and joy in this year’s relaunch, securing a new generation of fans while encouraging old ones to see things in a new light.Missed episode nine of Doctor Who?

Soy Growers Join New Initiative to Protect Modernize NAFTA for the 21st

first_imgThe American Soybean Association (ASA) supports the Americans for Farmers & Families (AFF), a new coalition of growers, producers, suppliers and consumers dedicated to preserving the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).NAFTA has greatly benefited the U.S. through strong job growth, higher wages and low consumer prices, and has particularly enabled a booming agricultural and energy export economy that has upheld America’s independence. But its livelihood is at stake.The mission of AFF is to educate policymakers on the best way to modernize NAFTA to fit America’s evolving needs. Improvements to NAFTA should be pursued by policymakers to ensure fair and balanced trade with our partners that benefits American exporters, consumers and helps create and grow American jobs.To be an impactful voice in the debate over the future of NAFTA and change perceptions about the trade agreement, the coalition will focus on supporting the negotiations with political grasstops, coalition building and earned media campaigns in Republican-leaning states across the nation. Mobilizing a unique coalition of our industry and supporters of President Donald Trump and Republican governors, senators and members of Congress will be critical to success of the negotiations.last_img read more

MiamiDade police officer looking for blood marrow donor for son

Greg Bendel Announces Hes Stepping Down As Head Coach Of Shawsheen Techs

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Wilmington’s Greg Bendel announced Friday he was stepping down as Head Coach of the Shawsheen Tech’s Boys Varsity Basketball Team.“Recently, I informed our Athletic Director that I have made the very difficult decision not to apply for the Head Basketball Coaching job for next season,” wrote Bendel in his announcement. “I have decided that now is the right time for me to spend more time with my two young children.”Bendel was coming off arguably the best coaching performance of his career, leading the Rams to a 17-3 record and a share of the Commonwealth Athletic Conference (CAC) Large School championship. Bendel was named the 2018-2019 CAC Coach of the Year.“I have enjoyed the past fifteen years as a basketball coach here at Shawsheen more than words can describe,” continued Bendel. “It has been one of the highlights of my life to serve as the Head Basketball Coach of the school where I was once a four-year player, but now is the right time for me to step away from coaching for awhile.”Bendel is thankful to Athletic Director Al Costabile; former head coach Bob Hodnett; assistant coaches Joe Gore, Larry Bradley, Joel Mignault, and Matt Bruno; and the alumni for their support.“Most importantly, I would like to thank all the kids that I have had the privilege to coach over the past fifteen years,” wrote Bendel. “I am so proud of you all and I can’t thank you enough for making me a better person. I’m forever grateful for the relationships we have formed over the years and I know that they will continue.”Bendel will be replaced by assistant coach Joe Gore, whom Bendel called “one of the greatest players in Shawsheen Basketball history and an even better coach.”“I stand ready to support him in anyway that I can, and I look forward to all his future successes,” added Bendel. “I urge everyone in the Shawsheen community to join me in supporting our new coach.”“I am forever grateful for the opportunity to have served as coach at such a great school,” stressed Bendel. “It has truly been an honor.

8 people shot dead in US suspect held

first_imgA male suspect was arrested on Sunday after eight people were shot and killed at three separate homes overnight in rural Lincoln County, the southern US state of Mississippi.The 35-year-old suspect, identified as Willie Cory Godbolt, was taken into custody after the shooting, and may have had a 16-year-old hostage for a time, Xinhua reported.The names of the victims, including a London County sheriff’s deputy, have not yet been released.The deputy went to a home for a resident wanting the suspect removed from the property before the shooting, according to a Dailyleader report.Godbolt has a long criminal history, said the report. He was arrested in 2015 for disorderly conduct and failure to comply with request by local police.Mississippi Bureau of Investigation spokesman Warren Strain said no charges have been filed and it would be “premature” to discuss a motive.last_img read more

Adolescent domestic help more vulnerable

first_imgAdolescent domestic workers are more vulnerable than other age groups working in the sector.Those aged between 13 and 18 are comparatively more among the victims of killing and rape during their work, according to human rights body Ain O Salish Kendra’s annual report from 2015 to 2018.The percentage of suicide is also higher among the housemaids in that age group, the ASK reports added.Girls mainly work as domestic help in Bangladesh.Ain O Salish Kendra report was based on news reports appearing in eight national dailies.The reports show 87 girls were killed in the past four years. As high as 57 per cent of them were between 13 and 18 years.Bangladesh Child Rights Forum director Md Abdus Shaheed said most of the housemaids are in this age group. As the adolescents are more vocal in their protest against against injustice, they often fall victim of torture and killing.Lack of legal protection is the prime cause behind this, he added.Statistics by Bangladesh Institute of Labour Studies (BILS) also show the same results.BILS says 78 per cent of the tortured housemaids are children.Most recently on 26 March, a body of a child domestic maid, Baishakhi, was recovered from Uttara in the capital. She was around 12 years old and was hanged to death.Also, the ASK’s reports show 58 per cent of those who committed suicide during their work were aged between 13 and 18.According to the domestic help and welfare policy 2015, those who are below 14 cannot be employed as domestic help. But, those who are between 12 and 14 can be given light chores.Risky jobs, no recognitionThe domestic help work is fifth on the list of most vulnerable works. But, this profession has no place on the list of 38 risky jobs by the labour and employment ministry.As per a research titled ‘Hidden Slavery: Child Domestic Workers’ commissioned by the Bangladesh Shishu Adhikar Forum (BSAF), 83 per cent of the domestic help are girls.On the other hand, the labour and employment ministry says 90 per cent domestic help are female.Of them, BSAF added, 60 per cent are victims of physical and mental torture.As high as 20 per cent of them fall prey to sexual harassment, added the study conducted on 10 towns.Human rights activist and lawyer Salma Ali said there are no appropriate measures in either the labour law or the child law against repression of the domestic help. That is why the suffering of the housemaids continues.Asked about the matter, labour ministry’s additional secretary Md Rezaul Haque said the Domestic Workers Protection and Welfare Policy was formulated as per necessity and demands.If needed, the job will also be included on the list of the risky occupations.last_img read more

Constantinides is new boss at ailing CY

first_imgBy Angelos AnastasiouIN THE midst of critical deliberations with potential investors nominally interested in taking over Cyprus Airways, former permanent secretary at the Communications and Works ministry Makis Constantinides was confirmed yesterday as the government’s choice to replace outgoing Tony Antoniou at the helm of the ailing national carrier.Antoniou had tendered his resignation last Friday following an investigation into various decisions to commission construction work and supplies without following due tender procedure. Though he claimed that circumventing proper procedure was necessitated by the airline’s dire financial state, which called for urgent cost-saving actions, subsequent investigation by the Finance ministry’s permanent secretary deemed such rule-bending “unjustified.” The investigation did conclude, however, that there had been “absolutely no indication” that Antoniou had ever intended to misappropriate funds.Prior to being appointed chairman of Cyprus Airways, Constantinides served as executive head at the Mediterranean Flight Safety Foundation, a Cyprus-based non-profit organisation seeking continuous improvement of flight safety in the south-eastern Mediterranean and the Middle Eastern regions.Following a Council of Ministers meeting yesterday, deputy government spokesman Victoras Papadopoulos said that “in today’s session, the cabinet decided to appoint Makis Constantinides, former permanent secretary at the Communications and Works ministry, to the position of Chairman of the Board of Directors of Cyprus Airways.”The new Cyprus Airways boss will take over at a time of critical importance that is likely to determine whether the company buckles under the weight of its financial woes.According to Communications and Works minister Marios Demetriades, all parties interested in investing in Cyprus Airways have been invited to submit non-binding proposals by tomorrow. From these proposals, a short-list of candidates with the most attractive bids will emerge, and subsequent negotiations will explore the viability of each.The Council of Ministers also appointed businessman Marinos Kallis to the position of vice-chairman. Kallis heads a family-owned apparel manufacturing business and is a member of the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Cyprus, as well as the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry.During the same session, the cabinet also appointed Neophytos Neophytou at the helm of the advisory committee to the Electronic Communications and Postal Services Commissioner. Yiorgos Koutsoftas and Athos Demetriou were appointed as committee members.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue BookYou Won’t Believe How Affordable These Ford Car Models AreKelley Blue BookUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
