Security Council reaffirms key role of women in conflict prevention and resolution

7 March 2007Reasserting how crucial women are in preventing and resolving conflicts and in peacebuilding, the United Nations Security Council today called on Member States and the Secretary-General to bolster efforts to empower women and increase their representation in decision-making. In a presidential statement, the 15-member Council stressed the “importance of [women’s] equal participation and full involvement in all efforts for the maintenance and promotion of peace and security” and the “need to increase their role in decision-making with regard to conflict prevention and resolution.”To this end, the Council urged Member States to enhance women’s representation at “all decision-making levels in national, regional and international institutions and mechanisms” regarding peace and security.The Council also urged Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to forge ahead with his policy to appoint more women to senior positions, by naming them as special representatives and envoys, as well as to increase women’s participation in UN field-based operations as military observers, civilian police, human rights and humanitarian personnel.Ambassador Dumisani Kumalo of South Africa, which holds the Security Council’s rotating presidency this month, read out the statement at a formal meeting held on the eve of International Women’s Day, marked each year on 8 March.Regarding the landmark resolution 1325, which was adopted in 2000 and aims to boost women’s role in conflict prevention, peace-keeping and peace-building operations, Mr. Kumalo said the Council calls on Mr. Ban and Member States, in collaboration with civil society, to “strengthen its implementation.”The Council’s meeting coincided with numerous other events pertaining to women taking place at UN Headquarters. General Assembly President Sheikha Haya Rashed Al Khalifa yesterday convened a two-day informal debate on women’s empowerment, while the UN Commission on the Women is currently holding its annual session under the theme of “the elimination of all forms of discrimination and violence against the girl child.”In today’s statement, the Council also said that it “remains deeply concerned by the pervasiveness of violence against women and girls in armed conflict,” condemning such practices as killing, maiming and grave sexual conflict in these situations and appealing for an end to impunity for acts of gender-based violence.The Council also reiterated the necessity of fully putting into practice international human rights and humanitarian rights law protecting women and girls during and after conflicts. read more

Watch Battlefield 4 being played at 4K resolution

first_imgLast week I discussed how 4K gaming was to blame for Call of Duty: Ghosts being a 50GB install on PC. 50GB is a lot of data if you decide to download the game, but not so much in terms of hard drive space when you consider terabyte-sized drives are the norm now. Even so, not many of us have 4K monitors to take advantage of those huge, detailed textures, let alone the hardware to allow the games to run at a decent framerate.4K gaming is the future, though, for PC gamers at least. And game review website Thirty IR is keen to show us how good it looks. To do this they’ve been uploading videos of the Battlefield 4 Beta to YouTube running at a 4K resolution. You can even choose to watch them in “Original HD” on YouTube if you have a monitor capable of hitting such resolutions.Running the game at 4K and a solid 60fps requires your rig has some serious CPU and graphics processing power available. Thirty IR’s setup includes a Core i7 3970X running at 4.8GHz, 32GB of Corsair Dominators Platinum RAM clocked at 2,133MHz, and four EVGA GTX Titan graphics cards running in 4-way SLI. The monitors being used are three Dell U3011 30-inch units at a res of 5160 x 2560. The game is actually being played above 4K resolution at 4800 x 2560, but the recording is at 4K (4096 x 2160).The thing to remember about this video is that at the moment it’s one of those “that would be nice to have” situations for a lot of gamers. But then in a few years from now it will be the common setup in an affordable gaming rig. It’s also a reminder that it’s not going to take very long for the next-gen consoles released next month to be easily outpaced by PC hardware again. And hopefully developers continue to take advantage of that performance rather than just shipping the console versions on PC.last_img read more

On Anzac Day we remember

first_imgWe recall scenes from war movies and marvel at the valour that those men and women displayed, and the sacrifice they endured.Really, most of us are lucky that movies are the only reference we have for the realities of war.But on Anzac Day this year, as they do every year, a rapidly dwindling group of men and women will march down Swanston Street to the Shrine of Remembrance and remember those realities.Things they did and saw and the comrades they lost will flash before their eyes. They will remember.“It brings back memories, I mean, nobody wants to go to war,” says Steve Kyritsis, a Vietnam Vet from the Hellenic RSL.“Our thoughts of course go back to the first world war at Gallipoli, when the Anzacs first grew. A lot of people think, ‘why do we celebrate Anzac Day, it was a lost cause,’ but it’s not just the war, it’s the commitment, the bravery, the sacrifice, the friendship,” he says.The Melbourne sub-branch of the Hellenic RSL will once again fly the blue and white of their homeland alongside the Australian flag, as recognition of a shared experience of many wars, and a shared heritage for those who fought in them.“Our members will represent the Second World War, we have veterans like myself that fought in the Vietnam War back in 1967-68, and generally members that served in the Australian armed forces, even though they haven’t been to war,” Kyritsis says.“We hope to have at least 50 members. We have a membership of 160 servicemen and I have to say, we love to see any Greek that served in the armed forces, whether they are a member of the Hellenic RSL or not, to take part with us. We would just love to have them along.”The march for the Hellenic RSL starts at 12:15pm on Sunday 25th April on Flinders street, between Swanston and Russell streets.Lest we forget.

New York man planned to travel to Pak join Taliban arrested at

first_imgNew York: A 33-year-old New York man, plotting to travel to Pakistan and then cross the border into Afghanistan to join the Taliban, was arrested and charged with attempting to provide material support for terror plots to kill US nationals and soldiers abroad. Delowar Mohammed Hossain of the Bronx was charged on Friday in a criminal complaint with attempting to provide material support for acts of terrorism, specifically in support of killing US nationals located overseas. Also Read – UK, EU Brexit teams to meet twice-weekly in September Advertise With Us The charge carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison. Hossain was arrested at the John F Kennedy International Airport in New York by the Federal Bureau of Investigation or FBI as he attempted to board a plane to Thailand. “As alleged, Hossain planned to travel overseas and join the Taliban in order to kill American soldiers,” Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Demers said. Also Read – Climate change: Australia downgrades outlook for Great Barrier Reef to ‘very poor’ Advertise With Us The criminal complaint filed in the Manhattan federal court said that beginning in the fall of 2018, Hossain expressed his desire to join the Taliban and fight against American forces. Over the months that followed, he attempted to recruit a confidential source of the FBI to travel with him from the United States to Pakistan and then to cross the border into Afghanistan to join the Taliban. Advertise With Us Hossain told the source that his purpose was to “fight the American government from there…combined with the Taliban”, and that “I want to kill some…(non-believers) before I die”. He also described to the undercover source the steps he had taken to prevent detection of his plan, such as planning to reach Pakistan by first flying to Thailand, which Hossain believed would conceal his ultimate goal of joining the Taliban. At the same time, he made preparations to fight in Afghanistan, including buying equipment such as walkie-talkies and trekking gear and instructing the source to save money “to buy weapons” after reaching Afghanistan. Hossain had purchased an airline ticket for a plane scheduled to depart from JFK to Thailand on Friday. US Attorney for the Southern District of New York Geoffrey Berman said Hossain wanted to kill Americans and particularly wanted to target members of the US armed forces serving overseas. Assistant Director-in-Charge of the New York Field Office of the FBI William Sweeney Jr said the “lure of radical ideologies comes from many sources and just because the Taliban may seem like an old and out of vogue extremist group, it should not be underestimated”. He added that law enforcement authorities stopped Hossain from travelling overseas to allegedly support a “deadly organisation and kept him from his alleged plan to kill innocent people”. New York Police Commissioner James O’Neil said attempting to support terrorist attacks will lead to arrest, as has been seen time and again.last_img read more

Maruti Suzuki posts mixed results in volume sales for September quarter

first_imgMaruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) put up a good show in domestic sales during the second quarter (Q2) ended September 30, 2016, but on the exports front, India’s largest car maker ended up with a 6 percent drop in shipments. Over a three-month period, the share price of MSIL has appreciated 36.25 percent, based on the closing price of Rs 4,170.25 on July 4 and the trading price of Rs 5,682.65 at around 12.55 pm on the BSE on Tuesday.MSIL sold 7.05 lakh units in domestic sales during Q2, marking a growth of 12.1 percent over 6.29 lakh cars the company sold in the corresponding period last year. Exports were disappointing, declining 6.3 percent to 61,543 cars from 65,701 units shipped out of the country in the year-ago period.On an overall basis, MSIL sold 7.67 lakh cars during the September 2016 quarter, up 10.4 percent from 6.95 lakh units clocked during the corresponding quarter last year.From a segment point of view, the company saw utility vehicles posting 151 percent growth to 91,959 units from 36,633 cars sold in September 2015 quarter.

NAACP Report Blacks at Risk for PollutionRelated Health Issues

first_imgA new study shows that the location of gas and oil refineries and their resulting pollutants are poisoning African-American communities at a disproportionate rate.The study, coauthored by the NAACP and the Clean Air Task Force, determined that oil and natural gas facilities are built near or exist within a half-mile of more than 1 million African Americans, exposing them to a higher risk of cancer from toxins emitted by those facilities.The largest Black populations facing the risk of cancer above the Environmental Protection Agency’s level of concern are in Texas and Louisiana. In those states, nearly 900,000 people are at risk. Houston and Dallas house some of the largest African-American populations that are in danger of childhood asthma attacks from ozone smog that comes from oil and gas facilities there. But because pollutants can drift for hundreds or even thousands of miles before they turn into smog, African-American neighborhoods as far away as Chicago, Washington, D.C., and New York City all faces thousands of asthma attacks from oil and gas pollution. Moreover, the report determined that three states — Texas, Ohio and California — as well as Louisiana, Pennsylvania and Oklahoma have the largest number of Black people living in the “threat zone.” “The effects of oil and gas pollution are disproportionately afflicting African Americans, particularly cancer and respiratory issues, and the trend is only increasing,” said Dr. Doris Browne, president of the National Medical Association, which supported the study. “Our membership is seeing far too many patients in communities of color suffering from these diseases. It is our goal to fight to reverse this dangerous trend.”The oil and natural gas industries violate the EPA’s air quality standards for ozone smog, because of the natural gas emissions in many African-American communities, the report purports. Those emissions cause more than 138,000 asthma attacks among school children and more than 100,000 missed days every year. The report went on to conclude that 91 counties across the U.S. are building oil refineries and that existing refineries are in proximity to more than 6.7 million African Americans, or 14 percent of the national population. That disproportionately exposes them to toxic and hazardous air laden with benzene, sulfur dioxide, formaldehyde and other poisonous chemicals. In a statement, Kathy Egland, NAACP’s environmental and climate justice committee board chair, said the report further proves that environmental racism exists. “It is claimed that in most cases the potentially toxic facilities were built first and communities knowingly developed around them,” she said. “However, studies of such areas show that industrial polluting facilities and sites have frequently been built in transitional neighborhoods, where the demographics have shifted from wealthier white residents to lower-income people of color. Polluting facilities also reduce nearby property values, making them more affordable areas to live in for people who do not have the means to live elsewhere.”  The study is called “Fumes Across the Fence-Line: The Health Impacts of Air Pollution from Oil and Gas Facilities on African American Communities.” You can view it online here (http://www.naacp.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Fumes-Across-the-Fence-Line_NAACP_CATF.pd).last_img read more

Greek government suffers defections as austerity vote looms

first_img The difference between men and women when it comes to pain ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras faced a rising wave of hostility from members of his own party Wednesday ahead of a parliament vote on an austerity bill that condemns the country to years of spending cuts but is required to get a new bailout package.The raft of consumer tax increases and pension reforms has led to growing anger among Greece’s governing left-wing Syriza party, while the country’s civil servants’ union voiced its objections with a 24-hour public sector strike.

Pharmacies joined in with their own 24-hour strike to object to the austerity deal which will allow some non-prescription drugs to be sold by supermarkets.Demonstrations were planned for Wednesday evening outside Parliament during the assembly debate.“These laws will pass through parliament today, because they can’t do otherwise,” said private sector employee Eleni Sari, 45, as she walked through central Athens.“Naturally, the people are furious, and they have not allowed them any choice. Unfortunately it’s not in our hands anymore. That is, it’s no longer in the people’s hands. By necessity … they will pass them in parliament, and by necessity we will bear their burden.”Greeks continued to struggle with limits on cash withdrawals and transfers outside of the country. Banks were shut down June 29 and the finance ministry said they would remain closed through Thursday.

It faces a Monday deadline to repay 4.2 billion euros ($4.6 billion) to the European Central Bank, and is also in arrears on 2 billion euros to the IMF.Negotiations on the new bailout will take an estimated four weeks, leaving European finance ministers scrambling to find ways to get Athens some money sooner.The European Commission has proposed to give Greece 7 billion euros in loans from a special fund overseen by all 28 EU nations so it can meet its upcoming debts.

In an ‘adverse’ scenario, in which the economy does worse than expected, the debt load would hit a massive 187 percent, 176 percent and 142 percent, respectivelyTsipras has faced strident dissent even from top ministers, with Energy Minister Panagiotis Lafazanis saying in a post on his ministry’s website that the deal the prime minister reached was “unacceptable” and calling on him to withdraw it.

The vote will almost certainly see large numbers of Syriza lawmakers dissent and vote against the package, raising questions of the government’s survival in its current form. The bill is expected to pass with votes in favor by pro-European opposition parties.Alternate Finance Minister Nadia Valavani said she would not vote in favor of the bill, and resigned from her government seat.In a letter she sent Tsipras on Monday morning and released by the finance ministry Wednesday, Valavani said she believed the tactics of the “dominant circles in Germany” was “the full humiliation of the government and the country.”Tsipras agreed to a deal after a marathon 17-hour eurozone summit Monday morning. It calls for Greece to pass new austerity measures his left-wing government had long battled against in return for the start of negotiations on a third bailout worth about 85 billion euros in loans over three years.The government, a coalition between Syriza and the small right-wing Independent Greeks, holds 162 seats in Greece’s 300-member Parliament. More than 30 of Syriza’s own lawmakers have publicly voiced objections.Tsipras has acknowledged the measures he agreed to go against his election pledges to repeal austerity, and described them in a Tuesday night television interview as “irrational.” Top ways to honor our heroes on Veterans Daylast_img read more
