At least 3 million affected by deadly floods in India and Nepal

More than 3 million people have been uprooted and 60 people killed by the worst flooding to hit north-east India in five decades, the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) reported today.The flooding began when heavy monsoon rains caused a dam to break, breaching the eastern embankment of the Kosi River, which straddles the India-Nepal border.The Sunsari district of Nepal, where 70,000 people have been displaced, and 16 districts in India’s Bihar state – one of the country’s poorest – have been the areas struck hardest. The Kosi River appears to have altered its course, flooding areas of Bihar not prone to inundation and damaging over 220,000 houses.WHO expressed concern over the possibility of the spread of communicable diseases.“No outbreaks have been reported in India nor Nepal, but the flooding, risk for water- and vector-borne diseases due to the massive population displacements, hot climate, stretched hygiene and sanitation levels and eventual pools of stagnant water… left behind by receding flood waters,” said Poonam Singh of the agency’s South-East Asian Regional Office.Working together with the Indian Ministry of Health, WHO is supplying 100 chloroscopes to assess water quality and is raising awareness on measles immunization.In Nepal, the agency has sent enough medicine to treat over 120,000 people for one month. It has also dispatched anti-malaria and anti-diarrhoea supplies.Along with WFP, the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the World Food Programme (WFP), the UN Population Fund (UNFPA), the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) have all dispatched staff to the areas in Nepal affected by the floods.UN agencies have appealed for more than $5 million for relief needs in Nepal for activities such as providing food, shelter and hygiene kits.“With so many people forced from their homes into extremely challenging conditions, all effort must be made to ensure the supply of safe drinking water, food, sanitation and accommodation facilities, as well as essential medicines,” said Eric Laroche, Assistant Director-General for WHO’s Health Action in Crises Cluster. 2 September 2008More than 3 million people have been uprooted and 60 people killed by the worst flooding to hit north-east India in five decades, the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) reported today. read more

UN lauds Namibias lifting of travel ban for people living with HIVAIDS

The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) today welcomed Namibia’s decision to remove travel restrictions for people living with the virus, a move that aligns the country’s laws with international public health standards.The new legislation lifting restrictions for people living with HIV/AIDS and other contagious diseases took effect in Namibia on 1 July.Restrictions that limit movement based on HIV-positive status only are discriminatory and violate human rights, according to UNAIDS. There is no evidence that such restrictions prevent HIV transmission or protect public health, the agency said, adding that HIV-related travel restrictions have no economic justification, as people living with HIV can lead long and productive working lives.“I am heartened by this announcement in Namibia,” said Michel Sidibé, UNAIDS Executive Director. “HIV-related travel restrictions serve no purpose and hamper the global AIDS response,” he added.UNAIDS advocates for an individual’s right to freedom of movement, regardless of HIV status.There are now 51 countries, territories, and areas that continue to impose some form of restriction on the entry, stay and residence of people living with HIV based on their HIV status. Five countries deny visas even for short-term stays, while 22 countries deport individuals once their HIV-positive status is discovered.The United States and China removed long-standing HIV-related travel restrictions earlier this year. Several other countries, including Ukraine, have pledged to take steps to remove such restrictions. 8 July 2010The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) today welcomed Namibia’s decision to remove travel restrictions for people living with the virus, a move that aligns the country’s laws with international public health standards. read more

UN human rights chief sends assessment mission to South Sudan following reports

“The team will examine violations of international human rights law and of international humanitarian law committed by actors on both sides of the political divide,” said a press release from the Office of High Commissioner Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein.He added that the first three members of the mission had already arrived in the South Sudanese capital, Juba, last week, and will focus on the human rights violations that have affected civilians since the outbreak of violence in the country in December 2013. Mr. Zeid also said that the assessment report will then be presented to the UN Human Rights Council, which mandated the mission, at its next session in March 2016.“Given the time constraints, this will be a preliminary assessment, building on the work done by the human rights division of the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS), and it will advise the Human Rights Council on appropriate follow-up action,” Mr. Zeid added.He went on to say the assessment report would also contain recommendations for ways to improve the human rights situation in the country and to ensure accountability for gross violations. A resolution of the Human Rights Council has stressed the importance of an objective assessment of the human rights situation in South Sudan and called for the deployment of a mission.The text also calls for monitoring and reporting the situation of human rights, including a comprehensive assessment of allegations of violence and abuses of human rights with a “view to ensuring accountability and in complementarity with the African Union Commission of Inquiry.”The resolution further requires the mission to report on the steps undertaken by the Government to monitor and ensure accountability of violations and abuses of human rights.This includes, “work to establish appropriate criminal justice mechanisms; to decrease and prevent violence against children and the recruitment of child soldiers; to investigate, arrest and prosecute perpetrators of any human rights violations and abuses, and of rape and sexual violence, including those in armed groups and the military; to investigate, arrest and prosecute perpetrators of targeted killings; to increase democratic space, especially for the media and civil society; and to prevent arbitrary detention.”Lastly, Mr. Zeid said that he looked forward to complete cooperation and support of the Government of South Sudan and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-in-Opposition. read more

Rangers showed character during win over Hearts – Grezda

first_imgRangers midfielder Eros Grezda insists the team showed character during their 2-1 win over Hearts despite being one man down for more than 20 minutes.Rangers fell behind to an early own goal from defender Gareth McAuley but scored twice before half-time through Connor Goldson and Alfredo Morelos.Steven Gerrard’s men had to play the last 20 minutes of the game with ten men after Scott Arfield saw red for a late challenge on keeper Zdenek Zlamal.But Grezda reckons the team’s determination showed through as they battled to earn an important victory.He said, according to Evening Times: “It was a really hard game. The guys never lost belief after going 1-0 down and we came back fast. We are very happy.”Rangers is still behind Celtic: John Hartson Manuel R. Medina – September 3, 2019 According to the former Celtic player, there’s still a massive gap between his ex-club and Rangers in the Scottish Premier League.“It’s a long way to the end [of the season] but for the moment we have a lot of games and we just have to go one by one.”“We have to give maximum effort in every game and go for the win. But the end is so far.”“As I said we go for every win so we will see what will happen.”“That’s football. We lacked a bit in the first 20 minutes but after they scored we showed our best face and scored two goals and that decided it.”“We played with less players in the second half but I’m really proud of the guys that they made it.”last_img read more

ALM Promotes Ten Staffers

first_img ALM’s acquisition of Legal Week in January 2016 was the latest in the company’s expansion plans, specifically geared toward growing its international reach. ALM has announced the promotion of 10 members of its senior leadership team, as part of a company-wide integration of talent and in line with the company’s global vision. “These changes are an important step in the creation of ALM’s new global newsroom and the company’s continuing evolution as a collaborative, innovative digital powerhouse,” ALM’s Chief Content Officer Molly Miller said in a press release.  Nichole Morford, previously the editorial lead and manager of the digital center of excellence for the Insurance Group, has been named ALM’s new digital editor-in-chief. She will be responsible for the development of digital strategies to maximize web traffic, grow audience engagement, and monetize ALM’s digital products. The new director of design and multi-media journalism is Tegist Legesse, who will oversee the visuals of both digital and print ALM products, and direct video and audio efforts for daily journalism and larger projects. In December of 2014, the company acquired Kennedy Consulting Research & Advisory, a media and information services provider for the management and IT consulting industries, as part of a move to enter adjacent markets to legal. Hank Grezlak will report to Haj in his role as Northeast regional editor-in-chief, which has been expanded to include oversight of all regional brands including the New York Law Journal, The Recorder, Texas Lawyer, Daily Report, and the Daily Business Review. Greg Mitchell, editor-in-chief of Law.com will now oversee all legal theme desks nationally, in line with the new global newsroom, and he will also report to Haj. Finally, Tasha Norman will assume the role of manager of content operations, where she will help ALM Editorial execute on new premium content solutions. Erin Harrison has been promoted from editor-in-chief of Legaltech News to editor-in-chief of multi-platform content. In this new position, she will lead and develop cross-vertical news desks and handle content sharing processes between events and publications. Zach Warren replaces Harrison as editor-in-chief of Legaltech News. Most recently, Warren served as the magazine’s managing editor. Meanwhile, Peter Westerman has been promoted from VP of market development for Internet of Things, Carrier Innovation, and Cyber Risk Management, to VP of market development and audience insights. In this role, Westerman will continue to analyze the cross-vertical potential of markets that ALM covers for new products and services. The promotions come after several acquisitions by ALM in the past two years, as part of the company’s attempt to increase its international reach. Vanessa Blum will report to Mitchell in her new role as editor of the litigation theme desk. Previously, Blum served as managing editor of The Recorder. Ginny LaRoe has been named acting editor-in-chief of The Recorder. George Haj has been promoted from Southern regional editor-in-chief to ALM editorial director. In his new position, Haj will oversee reporters, editors, and copy editors across the brand’s legal, finance, insurance, and real estate verticals, and more. A few weeks later, in January 2015, ALM bought Summit Professional Networks. At the time, ALM CEO Bill Carter said in a statement, “The acquisition of Summit Professional Networks represents the next major step in ALM’s growth strategy, expanding our reach into new strategic markets.”last_img read more

Harris County Makes Big Investment To Equip Law Enforcement Agencies With Body

first_img X Listen The Harris County Commissioners Court has approved spending 2.8 million dollars on purchasing almost 1,000 body cameras for law enforcement agencies that operate in the county and to develop computer systems to archive the video.The Harris County Commissioners Court approved this week spending $2.8 million on purchasing almost 1,000 body cameras for law enforcement agencies that operate in the county.The Harris County Sheriff’s Office will get most of them and the rest will go to deputies that work for constables’ offices.Steve Higginbotham, chief technology officer for Harris County’s Central Technology Services, notes the deputies will wear the cameras on their shirts and there are two ways to turn them on.“One is via push button, and the other is linked with the Arbitrator system in their car –with the camera system in their car— so when their car camera is automatically triggered, the body cam will automatically trigger also,” Higginbotham explains.Part of the funding the Commissioners Court approved will also be used to develop computer systems to archive the video.That will be one of the biggest challenges because eventually hundreds of deputies will be recording video daily and that means many hours of material.In Texas, law enforcement agencies that use body cameras must keep the video for 90 days.Florian MartinExamples of the body cameras the Harris County Sheriff’s Office is testing:(L-R): eyeglass, chest, pocket, shoulderBut, if the video captures the use of deadly force or if it is related to an administrative or criminal investigation, it must be retained as long as necessary.Major Kevin Scruggs oversees the body camera program at the HCSO. He says that buying the devices is just the first step of a lengthy process because “we are going to have to train about a thousand officers.”“It’s a huge training effort so that everybody knows how to appropriately classify, categorize, collect and offload that data,” Scruggs adds.Deputies from the HCSO have been testing body cameras since last year and Scruggs says they see them as a tool that will help them.The HCSO anticipates its deputies will start using the body cameras next summer.

Dropbox will soon require Kernel access

first_imgDropbox will soon require Kernel access by Martin Brinkmann on May 26, 2016 in Internet – 22 commentsDropbox revealed Project Infinite, a new way of managing files on desktop systems when the Dropbox client is being used, about a week ago.The main feature that Project Infinite brings along with it is a placeholder mechanic that displays all files on the desktop computer even if they are not synced. This gives you an overview of all of the files stored on Dropbox and improves manageability because of it.This is similar to what Microsoft’s SkyDrive Onedrive offered for some time before the feature was pulled by the company (too confusing to users was the reason I think that Microsoft gave back then).Dropbox did not reveal all the required information about Project Infinite last week, and has just published another blog post that reveals technical information on how the company plans to make the feature available.by DropboxThe company invested “the better part of two years” to create the solution. The gist of the article is that Dropbox will require Kernel access for the new feature.Traditionally, Dropbox operated entirely in user space as a program just like any other on your machine. With Dropbox Infinite, we’re going deeper: into the kernel—the core of the operating system.With Project Infinite, Dropbox is evolving from a process that passively watches what happens on your local disk to one that actively plays a role in your filesystem.Current versions of Dropbox operate in the user space only, and while that limits what Dropbox can do with the program somewhat, it is safer for a variety of reasons.A Dropbox client with kernel access can theoretically see and access everything on the system. While that may not be a problem on its own, you do trust Dropbox enough to store some of your files on their servers after all, it can have serious security or performance implications.Bad code could cause crashes or performance issues, and security vulnerabilities could wreak havoc on the system thanks to kernel access.Dropbox is not the only program to require kernel access, but access for the most part is limited to security solutions and system drivers.We don’t know yet if there will be a switch in the Dropbox client to turn kernel access on or off. If I had to guess, I’d say it will be implemented without such a switch meaning that Dropbox will require kernel access going forward.If you feel uncomfortable giving the program these access rights, you may want to consider one of the following options:Use Dropbox exclusively on the website. This is not very practical as it does away with the comfortable syncing and making available of files, but is more secure from a security point of view.Use a third-party sync client such as Multi Cloud instead which gives you access to your Dropbox files on the desktop without using the Dropbox client.Drop Dropbox, and switch to another cloud synchronization service instead.Now You: Do you mind giving Dropbox kernel access?SummaryArticle NameDropbox will soon require Kernel accessDescriptionDropbox’s upcoming Project Infinite will require operating system kernel access. Read on to find out what that means, and what you can do about it.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Venezuela prepares for talks aimed at ending crisis

first_imgRelated posts:Why I support Nicolás Maduro Venezuela charges opposition leader, sparking protests Desperate for coffee in Caracas Exiles in Costa Rica denounce alleged Venezuelan kidnapping plot CARACAS, Venezuela – President Nicolás Maduro and Venezuela’s opposition leaders are to meet Thursday for talks aimed at ending two months of deadly anti-government protests.The agreed-to dialogue would be unprecedented under Maduro, who succeeded Hugo Chávez last year following the long-standing leader’s death from cancer.Opposition leader and former presidential candidate Henrique Capriles, who narrowly lost the presidency to Maduro last year, has also confirmed he would attend the talks.“I say to our people: I will go tomorrow to defend the truth,” said Capriles, who is the governor of the state of Miranda and a member of the Democratic Unity Roundtable coalition or MUD.“We will tell the government the truth so the country opens its eyes, so that we understand that all this has to change,” he said.Since early February, 39 people have died and 600 have been wounded in clashes between security forces and protesters angered by soaring crime, high inflation and a shortages of basic goods such as toilet paper, which they blame on Maduro’s socialist government.At least three opposition leaders have been jailed in recent weeks over the protests.After preliminary negotiations on Tuesday, the two sides had agreed to the talks under the oversight of UNASUR, a regional South American grouping, and the Vatican.Among the conditions set by the two sides for the talks was the presence of witnesses, including the Vatican’s secretary of state, Pietro Parolin, the Holy See’s former envoy to Venezuela.“We want to convey the invitation of President Nicolás Maduro to His Holiness, Pope Francis,” for Parolin to act “as a good faith witness,” Venezuela’s foreign minister said in a letter sent Wednesday.Tough negotiations aheadThe Vatican has yet to publicly respond to the request, though it has previously indicated it was willing to mediate in the crisis.However, it remains to be seen whether the government and the opposition will be able to negotiate their way to a solution.For the MUD coalition, key issues on the talks’ agenda include amnesty for more than 100 people arrested during the protests, and a truth commission to probe the violence that marred them.MUD is also demanding the dissolution of armed civilian groups known as “colectivos” which it says are close to the government.But on Tuesday, Maduro insisted that he is not willing to consider either move.“There will be justice here, there will be no impunity,” he said, referring to the request for amnesty.And he stridently defended the civilian groups, denying they are armed and alleging a smear campaign against them.For his part, Maduro said he wants to crack down on street crime and push investment and economic development in the country, which has the world’s largest proven oil reserves but also myriad economic woes.One wing of MUD, known as Popular Will, says it will not take part in the talks because the government has not released one of its detained leaders, Leopoldo López.It said talks with Maduro would be just for show.Maduro has lashed out at the protests, branding them a “fascist” U.S.-backed plot to overthrow his government.Read all of The Tico Times’ coverage of the Venezuelan crisis by clicking on the hashtag #Bolivarian Revolution.

Derrick Hall satisfied with Dbacks buying and se

first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Instead of WRs Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd asking each other where to line up, the offense is operating seamlessly. And QB Carson Palmer, instead of watching cut-ups of Arians’ attacks in Indy and Pittsburgh, is studying Cardinals film. For Palmer’s sake, let’s hope the revamped O-line doesn’t need a year to catch on, too.On defense, Weinfuss said it will be up to defensive end Calais Campbell to have a career season in order to compensate for the losses of key personnel such as defensive end Darnell Dockett (injury) and linebackers Daryl Washington (suspension) and Karlos Dansby (free agency) that led the Cardinals to an NFL-best 84.4 rushing yards allowed per game last season.Campbell, who was a Pro Bowl alternate last season, has been labeled as underrated by more than just Arians. At 6-foot-8, 300 pounds, Campbell has a body that may be better suited to post up than chase quarterbacks, but he’s one of two players currently on NFL rosters with at least 299 tackles and 36.5 sacks since 2009, according to ESPN Stats & Information. In 2013, Campbell had a career-high nine sacks. There’s no reason to believe that he won’t top that in 2014.Weinfuss expects the Cardinals to follow up their 10-6 record in 2013 with a 9-7 record and third-place NFC West finish this year, adding that their final three games will decide whether they will advance to the playoffs for the first time since 2009. The Arizona Cardinals’ development on offense will help to offset their losses on defense, resulting in a 2014 season that will closely resemble the success of their 2013 campaign and place them on the cusp of a playoff berth.That’s the overarching analysis from ESPN’s Josh Weinfuss as part of their 2014 season preview.With a full season to digest second-year head coach Bruce Arians’ scheme, Weinfuss said the Cards’ offense, which finished 12th in yards per game and tied for 16th in points per game in 2013, should be a more efficient unit this season — as long as the offensive line gives quarterback Carson Palmer enough time to throw.

Arizona visits St. Louis on Thursday night in Week 15, hosts Seattle in Week 16 and travels to San Francisco for the finale.
