UN envoy speaks out against attacks in Nepalese capital

2 September 2007The top United Nations envoy to Nepal today condemned a series of bomb blasts which struck Kathmandu, resulting in a number of casualties. The top United Nations envoy to Nepal today condemned a series of bomb blasts which struck Kathmandu, resulting in a number of casualties.”The United Nations expresses its condemnation of the bomb attacks which have killed and injured Kathmandu citizens,” Special Representative of the Secretary-General Ian Martin said in a statement. “The Nepalese have shown a great capacity to resolve difficult issues through peaceful dialogue, and I have no doubt that acts of terror will discredit whatever cause they are claimed to promote,” said Mr. Martin, who is also head of the UN Mission in Nepal (UNMIN).According to media reports, at least two people were killed and more than two dozen others injured following three blasts that took place aboard a minibus packed with commuters, at a bus stop in the busy city centre and outside army headquarters.The attacks came just days after the Special Representative appealed for an end to violence ahead of November’s Constituent Assembly elections.Late last year, the Government and rebel Maoists signed a peace accord ending a decade-long armed conflict that killed some 13,000 people in the Himalayan nation. read more

Merkel Germany must engage in rights dialogue with China

BERLIN — German Chancellor Angela Merkel says it’s important for her country to engage in dialogue with China, including on issues such as human rights.Speaking to lawmakers during parliament’s annual budget debate Wednesday, Merkel said China has a “growing responsibility for the global multilateral order.”Merkel said that during her visit to China last week she noted the importance of respecting human rights, adding: “that’s true also with a view toward Hong Kong.”Beijing rebuked Germany on Tuesday for allowing prominent Hong Kong activist Joshua Wong to visit Berlin, where he met at a private function with Foreign Minister Heiko Maas and is due to hold a news conference later Wednesday.Merkel stressed that Germany believes in the principle of “one country, two systems” for China and Hong Kong.The Associated Press read more

Un Kraken à lépoque du Mésozoïque

first_imgUn ‘Kraken’ à l’époque du Mésozoïque ?Lors du dernier meeting de la Société américaine de géologie, à Minneapolis, un chercheur a proposé son hypothèse pour expliquer certaines traces laissées sur des ossements fossiles d’ichtyosaures. Celles-ci proviendraient de l’attaque d’un supposé céphalopode géant, un ‘kraken’ qui aurait pu vivre durant le Trias.Après avoir étudié les restes de 9 ichtyosaures de l’espèce Shonisaurus popularis du Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park, au Nevada, le Pr Mark McMenamin, paléontologue au Mount Holyoke College du Massachusetts, a émis une théorie inattendue. Les caractéristiques observées sur les ossements fossilisés de ces reptiles aquatiques du Trias suggèrent d’après lui, qu’ils auraient été victimes d’une espèce disparue de pieuvre géante, mesurant peut-être 30 mètres de longueur.À lire aussiQuand une pieuvre se fait surpasser dans l’art du camouflage (Vidéo)En effet, le long cou brisé de certains ichtyosaures, des marques sur leurs os ressemblant à celles de ventouses, l’agencement des ossements sur les sites de découverte évoquent : tout ceci serait selon le scientifique, des preuves de l’attaque d’un céphalopode (géant). Une créature qui aurait noyé ses victimes ou leur aurait brisé les cervicales avant de les entraîner dans son antre pour les dévorer, et de rejeter leurs restes dans un ‘dépotoir’, comme le font les poulpes actuels.Pour l’heure, seuls des indices circonstanciels suggèrent l’existence de ce monstre des mers. Un phénomène tout à fait normal si l’on en croit le Pr McMenamin qui souligne que le corps mou et dépourvu d’os de ces mollusques ne se fossilise pas. Néanmoins, l’hypothèse est remise en doute par nombre de ses collègues…Le 11 octobre 2011 à 14:55 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

ASA Comments on 24D Dicamba EIS

first_imgThe American Soybean Association (ASA) submitted comments this week in response to the May announcement from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) that the agency would prepare additional Environmental Impact Statements (EISs) for soybeans and corn resistant to 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), and soybeans and cotton resistant to dicamba. ASA opposes the decision and argues that the studies would place an additional and unnecessary barrier between farmers and the tools they need to remain sustainable and competitive while feeding a growing global population.“ASA strongly supports biotechnology and believes the development of biotechnology-enhanced soybean varieties and products can benefit farmers, consumers, and the environment,” wrote ASA in its comments. “[S]oybean growers strongly support the development of new varieties that allow them to farm more sustainably and profitably. Biotechnology has allowed plant breeders to develop soybeans that are tolerant to herbicides, thus allowing soybean farmers to better control weeds and implement no-till and conservation tillage practices that save fuel, reduce erosion, and protect the environment. Biotechnology also has allowed plant breeders to increase the yield potential of soybeans, benefiting both producers and consumers. Biotech soybeans have been grown safely since 1996, and in the 2012 crop year, approximately 94 percent of the soybeans planted in the United States were biotechnology-derived.” View ASA’s comments on 2,4-D-tolerant crops.[gview file=”https://soygrowers.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/pos-24-D_EIS-071713.pdf”]View ASA’s comments on dicamba-tolerant crops.[gview file=”https://soygrowers.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/pos-dicamba_EIS-071713.pdf”]last_img read more

Is pet pampering coming to a workplace near you

first_imgSomething for the weekend: Much has been said about how animals can help to reduce stress and enhance levels of wellbeing. Indeed, firms such as Uber have been directly applying this to the office environment by enabling employees in North America to pet kittens for 15 minutes, and offering a similar puppy service to staff in Australian workplaces.Now clinical pet behaviourists, supported by The Health Insurance Group, are piloting schemes designed to entice pets into the workplace by providing them with luxury treatments.Pets can indulge in paw pedicures, dog aromatherapy and canine zumba to ensure their health and wellbeing is adequately maintained in the office.The well-rounded scheme also takes into account dogs’ emotional wellbeing by offering matchmaking apps that help them find suitable canine friends and partners.Jermaine Shepherd, pet scientist at The Health Insurance Group, said: “A dog in work optimises opportunities for exercise, giving pet owners an excuse to get out and fit a walk into their lunch break, while a few playful minutes with a pet stimulates the production of the stress-reducing hormone oxytocin and stifles the stress hormone cortisol.“We also know that watching an adorable pooch has the capacity to boost morale and wellbeing, in some cases, worries and deadlines just melt away.“Dogs will be barking mad to pass on an opportunity like this. Who else gets to go to work and spend the day being pampered?”At Employee Benefits HQ we are wondering whether this five-star pampering service will be available past 1 April.last_img read more

Fitness Magazine and Mens Journal TagTeam Ad Sales

first_imgStill, the partnership is a 50-50 split in terms of responsibilities, and revenue will be disbursed according to where it’s earned. “Whatever media revenue comes in from the website or magazine is ours and the same goes for them [Wenner],” Schwarzkopf says. Marmot was the first company to sign on, and both publications will be official media partners for the company’s one-year “Lead Now” campaign. In addition to Marmot, a second client will be running a 4-page spread in both magazines and two additional Meredith titles. Schwarzkopf says there are more opportunities in the pipeline, but for the time being they are “on track” in terms of their objectives and expectations. “We were very realistic out of the gate as we were discussing this possibility,” Schwarzkopf says. “If this brings in three, four or five new pieces of business then that’s great, it’s business we didn’t have before, but we’re already seeing the phones ring.” A partnership like this requires each brand to familiarize itself with one another. “We need to be versed in baseline demographics and circulation numbers for Men’s Journal. But our demos line up nicely, so we can break them down, we can talk about them as an amalgam or we can talk about them individually,” Schwarzkopf says. Schwarzkopf also indicates that it’s the sales teams who play the most critical role in the collaboration. “We have empowered our sales team to be the catalysts. We share each others’ current issue so we can stay up to speed,” he says. In other words, the sales team needs to frame its pitch with both brands in mind.Looking ahead Schwarzkopf hints there is still more to come, “we have identified some other possible extensions and evolutions of the partnership, but I’m not at liberty to share more,” he says. The Meredith Corporation and Wenner Media have created a unique partnership that could change the way some publishers strategize ad sales. Meredith’s Fitness and Wenner’s Men’s Journal are packaging unified ad space that will be marketed to targeted accounts. As the media landscape continues to transform, publishers are looking for innovative strategies to penetrate new business. However, collaborating with direct competitors is an unfamiliar tactic in most brands’ playbooks. “It’s a competitive market place, and we agreed that anything we can do to make ourselves strong is a wise decision,” says Fitness publisher, Eric Schwarzkopf. According to Folio:’s sister publication min, Fitness has placed 507.25 ads within its book in the first half of this year, which is down -7.05 percent over 2012’s 545.75 pages. On the other hand, Men’s Journal is up 3.52 percent this year, which breaks down to 494.63 pages in 2013 versus 477.79 in 2012. last_img read more

Laughlin AFB Local Agencies Sign Partnership Agreements

first_imgThe city of Del Rio, Val Verde County and Laughlin Air Force Base last month signed agreements allowing service members to use the county sheriff’s firing range and one establishing an aircraft maintenance certification program at a local junior college.Both would enhance the mission at the Texas base located less than 10 miles from the Mexican border.“This is unprecedented, we’ve never done this before,” said Col. Brian Hastings, 47th Flying Training Wing commander.The first agreement will enable Laughlin members to use the Val Verde County Sheriff’s office firing range for training purposes, reported 47th Flying Training Wing Public Affairs.The other initiative will spearhead an aircraft maintenance program at Southwest Texas Junior College.“Laughlin has a shortage of maintainers,” said Anthony Kusenberger, president of the Del Rio Chamber of Commerce. “So if we are able to fill 66 of those empty positions, it will generate $2.5 million of payroll that much of will be spent locally. So this is the kind of win-win scenario this partnership is all about. Laughlin gets positions filled and it benefits our economy,” Kusenberger said.Officials at Laughlin emphasized that the new agreements represented the beginning of a closer relationship between the installation and its hosts aimed at doing things more efficiently.“The initiatives that we agreed to are just the start,” said Lt. Col. Chris Lundy, deputy commander of the 47th Mission Support Group. “There are so many more in the works, as our communities work together to improve life for all of us,” Lundy said.

Acclaimed Architect Working on Bayside Design for Hunters Point

first_imgFive residential complexes have popped up at the former Hunters Point Naval Shipyard since construction of the first phase of redevelopment began in 2014, providing a preliminary view of FivePoint’s 437-acre extension of San Francisco’s Bayview neighborhood.So far, a little more than 208 condominiums and apartments have been built out of 800 total housing units planned for 75 acres in the project’s first phase. Three more complexes are under way.With the variety resulting from the participation of four architectural firms, the new residential complexes are “an intriguing work,” reports the San Francisco Chronicle. Along with a network of neighborhood parks, the new construction to date is most notable because of “a sense of spacious possibility” it provides residents and visitors.Hunters Point’s future is full of promise, as David Adjaye, the architect who designed the newly opened National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., has started to design the bayfront portion of the project.The existing plan would split the bayside portion into a residential area and an “urban innovation district.” Nearly all the structures from before 1950 would be demolished. Early conceptual designs by Adjaye, though, would alter the layout of the current plan. It would add at least one major plaza with modern commercial and civic buildings alongside a waterfront promenade in an attempt to add “an urban spark” to the project, according to the story.“We’ve just started, but we want people to see how we’re forming the direction,” Adjaye told a small group at a talk earlier this month organized by FivePoint, a spinoff of Lennar Corp. “It’s not all worked out yet, so don’t ask me technical details,” he said.

Caribou hunting limited in eastern Interior

first_img(Photo courtesy of Alaska Department of Fish and Game)The state will limit caribou hunting in the eastern Interior, along the Taylor and Top of the World Highways. An Alaska Department of Fish and Game announcement says the no-hunt corridor prohibits harvest of caribou within a hundred feet along both sides of the road during a state hunt for Forty Mile caribou, which opens August 29th.Listen nowFish and Game spokeswoman Doreen Parker McNeil said the corridor addresses safety and conservation issues.”Members of the public, as well as some law enforcement officials, have voiced a lot of concerns about hunters shooting from and across the highway, particularly on or near curves in the road and in areas with houses and campgrounds,” McNeil said. “And we’ve had a lot of reports documenting hunters shooting into groups of caribou from the edge of the highway and that results in wounding loss.”McNeil said the restriction is also aimed at limiting harvest when a large portion of the herd crosses the highway.”It becomes difficult to manage the hunt in such a way that the hunt is open long enough for people to have the opportunity to hunt without exceeding our harvest quota,” McNeil said.McNeil said it’s also hoped that the restriction will reduce the illegal dumping of gut piles and other caribou remains along the roads. The no-caribou harvest corridor runs the entire length of the Top of the World Highway, and along the Taylor from milepost 75.5, at the South Fork Bridge, to mile 115.4, at the Alder Creek Bridge.last_img read more

KMC takes first step to develop Mayer Bari rehabilitates 35 slum families

first_imgKolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s plan of developing Heritage Tourism with a total renovation of Mayer Bari in Bagbazar took a major stride on Saturday with the Kolkata Municipal Corporation handing over keys of apartments to 35 families who lived in slums located just opposite to Mayer Bari.”We will be coming up with 300 flats, each with an area of 300 square feet, and all the slum dwellers will be gradually relocated there. We have set a time frame of six months each for completing a single block. There will be a total of 15 such blocks that will be handed over. The first block is being handed over to 35 families today (Saturday),” said Mayor Firhad Hakim at a programme near Mayer Bari in Bagbazar. The funds for the project was first sanctioned under Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) when it was agreed that the Centre would allocate 60 percent and state will be giving 40 percent. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal life”However the NDA government after coming to power in 2014 washed its hands off the fund allotment. It was Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee who announced that the renovation will be taken up with funds being provided by the state government. We are spending Rs 30 crore for the entire project,” Hakim added. Minister of State for Women and Child Welfare Shashi Panja, who is also the local MLA, said there were attempts to create division among people in the area but all hurdles have now been cleared. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killed”The slum dwellers have willingly agreed to vacate their houses and move to apartments which we are constructing for them. I will appeal to all residents not to be carried away by any rumour. The government will ensure that nobody is deprived,” Panja maintained. The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC), with funds allocated by the state government, will come up with a vocational training centre and a children’s park after relocating the slum. The stretch around the heritage building will also be beautified and then decked up with illuminative lights to give it a majestic look. Ramakrishna Paramhansha’s wife Sarada Devi had lived at the two-storeyed house off Bagbazar Street, known as Mayer Bari, for 11 years (1909-1920). Hundreds of devotees and tourists from India and abroad throng the building every day. “The narrow lane leading to Mayer Bari is a major hassle, especially during festivals when thousands of devotees line up to pay homage to Sree Sree Maa. The roads will also be widened in view of this to make it easier for devotees to visit the place,” a senior official of the KMC said.last_img read more

Planned march shows cracks in Venezuela opposition movement

first_img Sponsored Stories Quick workouts for men The Harvard-educated Lopez, who represents the more radical wing of the opposition, has been jailed for 15 months in connection with a bloody street protest movement that swept Venezuela in the spring of 2014.On Tuesday, the coalition that includes Lopez’s party said it would not endorse the rally because it had been unable to reach a consensus under the circumstances. The statement suggested the difficulty of coordinating with an imprisoned leader, though even when he was free, Lopez clashed with other opposition politicians about the wisdom of big street protests.Lopez and fellow jailed former mayor Daniel Ceballos say they launched a hunger strike last weekend to protest what they see as creeping authoritarianism. Government officials have said Lopez is still eating, but the men’s families affirmed Tuesday that they really have stopped.“Their hunger strike represents the suffering of all Venezuelans,” Lopez’s wife, Lilian Tintori, said.Lopez has been kept almost mostly out of public sight since his arrest in February 2014. It’s a striking contrast to the two years the late President Hugo Chavez spent in prison after a failed coup in 1992. The socialist leader regularly received guests and gave television interviews. Lilian Tintori, the wife of jailed opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez speaks during a press conference in Caracas, Venezuela, Tuesday, May 26, 2015.
