The Award evening has become renowned for its magic moments, with unique live performances that have a special resonance for the recipient.last_img read more

Myanmar Ban underlines need to release all remaining political prisoners

29 July 2011Releasing all remaining political prisoners is the single most important step that authorities in Myanmar can take, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today, expressing hope that the Government of the Asian nation will soon take steps towards greater democracy. Mr. Ban spoke by telephone earlier today with U Wunna Maung Lwin, Myanmar’s Foreign Minister, just days after he welcomed a meeting between a Government minister and Aung San Suu Kyi, the Nobel Peace Prize laureate and prominent opposition figure.Ms. Suu Kyi, who spent almost 15 years under house arrest during the past two decades, was released in November last year.In his conversation with the Foreign Minister, the Secretary-General “underlined that he had publicly welcomed the reform measures announced by the new Government,” according to information released by his spokesperson.“He hoped that the Government would now move toward concrete action and take the country forward towards peace, democracy and prosperity.”Mr. Ban also pressed for “early action” on releasing Myanmar’s remaining political prisoners, describing their release as the “single most important step the international community expected to take.”The Secretary-General also voiced his concern to the Foreign Minister about the ongoing violence involving some armed groups and the impact of that on civilians, saying the Government must resolve the situation peacefully. read more

SecretaryGeneral Ban welcomes meeting of leaders of Sudan and South Sudan

The meeting between Sudan’s President Omar Al-Bashir and South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir will take place in Ethiopia – hosted by that country’s Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn – with the facilitation of Thabo Mbeki, the chair of the African Union High-Level Implementation Panel (AUHIP).“The Secretary-General encourages both Presidents to address decisively all outstanding issues between Sudan and South Sudan regarding security, border demarcation and the final status of the Abyei Area, to urgently activate agreed border security mechanisms, and implement all other agreements signed on 27 September 2012,” Mr. Ban’s spokesperson added in a statement today.“The United Nations stands ready to support the parties in implementing their agreements and to assist in the resolution of all remaining disputes,” he added.South Sudan became the world’s newest country on 9 July 2011. Its birth was the culmination of a six-year peace process which helped bring an end to the long-running conflict between South Sudan and Sudan, which it was formerly a part of.However, the peace between the two countries had been threatened in 2012 by armed clashes along their common border and outstanding post-independence issues that had yet to be resolved.In late September last year, the two countries’ leaders met in Ethiopia to finalize agreements on issues being discussed under talks – held under the auspices of the AUHIP – which were designed to enable them to fulfil their obligations under a so-called roadmap aimed at easing tensions, facilitating the resumption of negotiations on post-secession relations and normalizing relations between the two countries. At the meeting, the two countries reached a key framework agreement for cooperation – particularly in security, the common border and economic relations.The final status of Abyei, a disputed region straddling the border between the two countries, has yet to be determined – it is one of the outstanding issues of the so-called Comprehensive Peace Agreement which helped bring an end to the conflict between Sudan and South Sudan, before the latter’s independence. read more

Mer Baltique les Etats riverains doivent intensifier leurs efforts pour la protéger

first_imgMer Baltique : les Etats riverains doivent intensifier leurs efforts pour la protégerDans un rapport récemment publié, le Fonds mondial pour la nature (WWF) accuse les Etats riverains de la Baltique de ne pas respecter leurs engagements en ne protégeant pas assez efficacement cette mer de la pollution. L’organisation qui classe les pays en fonction de leurs efforts, les appelle à agir.Le WWF vient de publier un rapport dans lequel il dresse un bilan des efforts mis en oeuvre par les neuf Etats riverains de la Baltique pour la protéger. “Nous avons besoin de moins de paroles et de plus d’actes. Si nous voulons réussir à sauver notre mer commune, les gouvernements doivent travailler de manière plus efficace, par-delà les secteurs et les frontières”, a déclaré Haakan Wirtén, le secrétaire général de la section suédoise du WWF, cité par l’AFP.À lire aussiPourquoi l’eau des océans est-elle salée ?Dans son rapport, l’ONG classe les pays en fonction de leurs actions et de l’efficacité de celles-ci. Ainsi en 2011, la Suède et l’Allemagne arrivent en tête du baromètre, avec toutefois seulement 36 points pour un maximum de 79. Les deux pays, affirme le WWF, “sont les meilleurs pour appliquer les accords internationaux et régionaux portant sur l’environnement”. Suivent la Finlande avec 29 points, le Danemark (28 points), puis l’Estonie, la Lituanie et la Pologne avec une note de 25. En bas du tableau, l’association place la Lettonie et la Russie, qui n’obtiennent respectivement que 19 et 18 points. Pour noter les Etats riverains de la Baltique, le WWF prend en compte plusieurs critères : les engrais, les produits toxiques, la biodiversité, la navigation maritime et la gestion intégrée de la mer. L’organisation de protection de l’environnement note des progrès en matière de régulation de l’utilisation de produits toxiques, “même s’il reste beaucoup à faire, en particulier pour venir à bout de nouveaux toxiques”, souligne le rapport. Et l’association de souligner les manquements de tous les pays de la région en matière de respect de la biodiversité et de l’utilisation encore bien trop importante des engrais.Le 2 septembre 2011 à 17:01 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Texas quatre morts et plus de 1000 maisons détruites par les flammes

first_imgTexas : quatre morts et plus de 1.000 maisons détruites par les flammesLes feux de forêt qui ravagent le Texas depuis la semaine dernière ont fait quatre morts et détruit plus de 1.000 maisons, selon un bilan établi par les autorités locales. La Maison Blanche s’apprête à débloquer des aides pour faire face à ces incendies favorisés par la sécheresse.Le bilan des feux de forêts qui frappent le Texas s’alourdit. Selon les autorités locales, les incendies qui ravagent l’Etat depuis plus d’une semaine ont désormais détruit plus de 1.000 maisons et causé la mort de quatre personnes. Dans l’Est de l’Etat, une jeune femme de 20 ans et son enfant avaient déjà péri dans l’incendie qui a ravagé leur mobile-home dont ils n’ont pu s’échapper. Mais mardi soir, les corps de deux victimes supplémentaires ont été découverts dans des décombres fumants, a indiqué Ronnie McDonald, un juge du comté de Bastrop, dans le sud-est de l’Etat.À lire aussiLa migration de millions de crabes rouges filmée sur l’île de ChristmasToutefois, le bilan pourrait encore s’aggraver dans les prochains jours alors que les feux nourris par les vents secs attribués à la dépression tropicale Lee se sont encore propagés ce week-end. En raison de la sécheresse, l’intervention des pompiers s’avère de plus particulièrement délicate, alors qu’ils peinent à se ravitailler en eau dans les rivières et les lacs, victimes d’assèchement. Néanmoins, une météo plus clémente mercredi a permis aux pompiers de maîtriser environ 30% de l’incendie le plus important, a indiqué April Saginor, porte-parole des services forestiers du Texas cité par l’AFP. “L’un des pires incendies” L’incendie en question se trouve dans le comté de Bastrop, où les feux ont ravagé plus de 14.000 hectares et 600 maisons en deux jours. Un triste record pour un seul incendie, selon les services forestiers du Texas. Actuellement, plus de 250 pompiers, appuyés par des avions et hélicoptères bombardiers d’eau, luttent toujours contre les flammes. “C’est l’un des pires incendies que j’ai vus”, a commenté le gouverneur du Texas Rick Perry après un survol du comté.Mercredi, le gouverneur a justement reçu un appel de Barack Obama, inquiet de la sécurité des habitants de la région. Le président a également assuré que la Maison Blanche traiterait rapidement les demandes d’aides supplémentaires pour porter main forte au Texas où plus de 1,4 million d’hectares sont partis en fumée depuis le début de l’année.  Le 8 septembre 2011 à 12:59 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

GEEK PICK Lumines Remastered

first_img Geek Pick: Shure MV88+ Is An Excellent, On the Go Microphone KitGeek Pick: Amazon Smart Plug Puts Alexa in Your Walls It’s kind of hard to remember this now, but the PlayStation Portable was pretty popular. Sure its sales looked weak compared to its direct rival the Nintendo DS, but the DS was one of the most successful video game systems ever at over 150 million units sold. The PSP was still the best non-Nintendo gaming handheld by far, building up a solid library and fanbase. It had issues, like using spinning fragile proprietary UMD discs, and Sony learned the wrong lessons when creating its failed follow-up the PlayStation Vita. But the PSP was ultimately pretty cool!And one of the coolest PSP games was mesmerizing launch puzzle game Lumines. Since 2004 Lumines has become a modern puzzle game classic. No one has anything bad to say about it. But with the PSP long dead, there was no current way to actually play it, until now. Whether you have a PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or Nintendo Switch you now have no excuse to pick up Lumines Remastered.Lumines is the brain/lovechild of Tetsuya Mizuguchi, the game dev master of lights and sounds behind video game art like Rez, Child of Eden, and the upcoming Tetris Effect for virtual reality. The man just loves making games that make your senses blur together, and Lumines is no different.The goal in Lumines is to create four-piece squares of the same color by dropping blocks made of a combination of two colors. Squares are cleared only when the roving line sweeps through them, giving you time to create combos. It’s a Tetris-adjacent idea, but more creative and freeform since there are many ways to make squares with these colors. The horizontal game board also gives you more room to mess around.Lumines Remastered packages up everything great about the original for new hardware. You can’t go wrong with any version but our personal pick is the Nintendo Switch version due to the game’s portable legacy, easy Joy-Con multiplayer, and how well HD Rumble works with the library of thumping trance beats that really give Lumines its character. So start Shinin’ already.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Stay on targetlast_img read more

State WGU leader aims to double student enrollment

first_imgSeven years after it created an affiliate in this state, an online, competency-based national university started by a group of western governors is getting its largest share of enrollment from Washington.Western Governors University has enrolled more than 11,000 Washington students this academic year, and graduated its largest class of residents of this state — 3,000 students — last month.That’s the largest enrollment from any state in the country, said the new chancellor of the WGU Washington affiliate, Tonya Drake. She believes it’s growing in Washington because WGU has done a good job of getting the word out in this state.Drake, formerly the vice president for college relations and advancement at Edmonds Community College, said she wants to see the enrollment double in the next five years.The university’s biggest draws are its health-care, education and business programs, and it has focused on those areas because that’s where the workforce shortages are, Drake said. More recently, it has moved into cybersecurity, cloud and systems administration and computer science, she said.last_img read more

40 of cancers caused due to poor oral hygiene at Vasavya

first_imgVijayawada: Poor oral hygiene might result in various health complications, said noted dentist Dr N Sashidhar while addressing the health education programme on ‘Oral Hygiene’ at Vasavya Nursing Home here on Saturday with Dr G Samaram in the chair. “If one takes proper care of oral hygiene, the health would be in perfect condition,” the dentist said. Also Read – Telugu Day fete held at DPS Advertise With Us Dr Sashidhar said that 40 per cent of the cancers were related to oral hygiene. “The habits including heavy use of betel nut powder, pan parag, zarda, Khaini, gutka, chewing of tobacco and smoking are the culprits which cause oral cancer.” He regretted that several youths were falling prey to such habits of smoking and gutka. He said that 50 per cent of middle-aged persons in the country suffer from bleeding gums, bad smell from mouth, loose teeth and losing them later. “Taking minor precautions, all these could be averted to keep the teeth intact,” the dentist advised. Also Read – Second batch of banking course begins Advertise With Us It is always better to bite hard fruits like guaua, and almond and other dry fruits to provide good exercise to the gums, he said. “At the time of brushing, it would be better the gums are given good massage with fingers,” he said. Everyone should visit a dentist once in six months to get scaling of teeth done to avoid problem to gums. The dentist said poor oral hygiene was resulting in decayed teeth. Even two-year old children were suffering from decayed teeth due to overeating of chocolates, he pointed out. The dentist advised people to wash the mouth with water immediately after eating and brush the teeth before sleeping in night. Referring to the latest technology in dental surgery, he said one need not lose teeth because of decay and added root canal could be done to save teeth. The dentist advised people to know about dental science and save their teeth before it is too late Dr G Maru proposed a vote of thanks.last_img read more

Baker Hughes tries to reassure investors as Halliburton deal fails

first_imgBaker Hughes Inc sought to reassure investors on Monday by announcing a $2.5 billion plan to buy back stock and pay down debt, using the breakup fee it will receive following the collapse of its long-stalled takeover by fellow oilfield services provider Halliburton Inc.Now each company must map out a strategy to thrive on its own. Both had hoped the merger would help them weather the worst oil price crash in a generation, which has caused hundreds of thousands of layoffs across the industry.Wall Street analysts said Halliburton should be in better shape than Baker Hughes but praised Baker Hughes’ plan to cut annual costs by some $500 million in an oversupplied market while repurchasing shares.”(This) equates to meaningful upside potential to earnings estimates in 2016 and 2017″ for Baker Hughes, UBS analyst Angeline Sedita said in a note to clients.Baker Hughes said proceeds from a $3.5 billion breakup fee from Halliburton would fund a $1.5 billion share buyback and the repayment of $1 billion of debt.Shares of Halliburton rose 2.6 percent to $42.36 on Monday, while Baker Hughes fell 2.8 percent to $47.04.Baker Hughes has faced employee turnover and cutbacks ever since Halliburton announced plans 18 months ago to buy it in a deal first valued at $35 billion.Regulators in the United States and overseas frowned upon the transaction, calling it a threat to competition and innovation. That led both sides to scrap the agreement on Sunday.The U.S. Justice Department had filed a lawsuit last month to stop the deal, saying it would leave only two dominant oilfield services companies, the merged Halliburton-Baker Hughes entity and global market leader Schlumberger Ltd.Baker Hughes, which is developing products that lower costs and maximise production for oil and gas producers, also said on Monday it planned to refinance a $2.5 billion credit facility, which expires in September.The company said an initial phase of cost-cutting should result in $500 million of annualised savings by the end of 2016.In a separate regulatory filing on Monday, Baker Hughes said it had cut 2,000 more jobs in the first quarter, adding to worldwide reductions of 18,000 last year. The company had about 43,000 employees as of Dec. 31. Baker Hughes said on Wednesday that it recorded after-tax “merger-retained” costs of $110 million in the first quarter, leading to a bigger net loss for the period.The Houston-based company also said then that it was limiting its exposure to the unprofitable onshore pressure pumping business in North America.Halliburton, which will release its first-quarter results on Tuesday, said on April 22 that revenue for the period slumped 40 percent.Shares of Baker Hughes have fallen 25 percent since the merger deal was announced in November 2014. Halliburton stock declined more than 19 percent in that time.last_img read more

China to show leadership in tourism in times of uncertainty

first_imgThe person that will lead the World Tourism Organization through such upcoming difficult times has to, first and foremost, be above reproach himself. There simply cannot be any allegations or proof to cause doubts in his ability to carry out the work of this integral tourism position. He needs to be strong, outspoken, and a master of communication with high ethics. He needs to be able to work independently and separate from his Prime Minister and his foreign minister – and for the good of the world, not just his own country.With all due respect, this truly is not how this nominee, Zurab Pololikashvili, has positioned himself. Allegations of vote buying, illegal wiretapping, and rule violations in the process of this election have overshadowed the entire election process after the fact.The full UNWTO assembly of representatives that will meet in China needs to be solid, fair, and ethical when it confirms or does not confirm, this nominee.The intervention by the Zimbabwe Minister of Tourism will show the importance of a needed reform. Delegates should not judge this outspoken minister by his country alone. They should appreciate him being the only one to take leadership when speaking up as a one man minority. It’s not about him, it’s about the industry every delegate will represent.This meeting is also not about the Georgian Prime Minister who will be watching over the process, and it is not about the nominee Zurab or the very respectful Republic of Georgia. This is about the future of UNWTO, the future of world tourism, and possibly the future of human negotiation for peace through tourism.China will have the difficult and important task of overseeing its options as the host for this meeting, and it must show true leadership. China is known to always act independently. Therefore, the hope is that China will have the fortitude to be resilient and stand up for what is right.Chengdu is the best platform for the UNWTO to move forward out of this difficult internal and external situation, keeping the world of tourism with the respected status that it should have, with its head held high in the global community, and with the strength, support, and power to maneuver through storm clouds when it’s called for.… and at the end of the meeting,  tourism leaders should visit the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding and talk some more or enjoy a dinner in one of the excellent restaurants this city is also famous for. Chengdu is the capital of southwestern China’s Sichuan province. Chengdu’s history dates back to at least the 4th century B.C., when it served as capital for the Shu Kingdom. Artifacts from that dynasty are the focus of the Jinsha Site Museum.Share this: eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) It will also be a chance for tourism to show this industry is more than blue sky, sandy beaches, and good wine, and it’s more than a yes man industry to please foreign ministers or heads of state.Threats made to global instability becoming louder and more serious. Mr. Song Jo Kim, Director of the National Tourism Administration in Pyongyan, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, also known as North Korea, is due to attend, together with delegates from 155 countries, the upcoming General Assembly of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) scheduled to take place in Chengdu, China, on September 11-16, 2017.This year, the General Assembly of the World Tourism Organization could very well become the most important one ever with an extended mission for dialogue and peace.Having such a conference in a country like China makes this venue close to perfect this year.It is not the white pandas that delegates will be invited to admire when they are in Chengdu, but rather it is the chance to get the global travel and tourism community leadership together under one roof. Global tourism ministers and officials will have a dialogue on tourism and possibly more. This is what will make the potential of the importance of this meeting in China significant. Tourism is integrated into geo-political issues.Without any argument, China is bound to become the largest of everything in tourism when it comes to numbers. The country will be the largest in outbound tourism, the largest in inbound tourism, the largest in spending, the largest in air traffic, the largest in the meeting and incentive industry.This tourism superpower has a chance – and an obligation – to the world to become a catalyst for a discussion for peace that is so needed in today’s world.There is even more at stake in China this year. The UN World Tourism Organization (UNWT)O has elected a new nominee to take over from one of the most respected tourism leaders the organization and the world has ever had – Dr. Taleb Rifai from Jordan. This nominee is Ambassador Zurab Pololikashvili from the Republic of Georgia. He will be in China with his prime minister, Giorgi Kvirikashvili, who many think was the true winner of Zurab’s nomination.Zurab’s nomination for UNWTO Secretary General has become the center point of discussion, allegations, and whispers in the global travel and tourism community. This publication has extensively reported on this subject. The center of World Tourism, the Center of Dialogue amongst people and cultures, and the Center for World Peace will be in Chengdu, China in September.Chengdu will be the center of controversy when it comes to the newly to be elected UNWTO Secretary General, and it will be a chance for the host China to show strength and global leadership.center_img Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… LGBTQ – eTurboNews (eTN)Joined and inspired by travel and tourism: eTN issues a Mele KalikimakaUNWTO and LGBT Tourism: Second Global report released at IGLTA SummitMore articles on eTurboNews click herelast_img read more
