Category: kuzkuihrvxwjoynj Delays in Côte dIvoires polls could threaten peace warns top UN envoy

27 October 2008Increasing delays in the dual identification and electoral processes is imperilling the hard-won peace in Côte d’Ivoire, which is rebuilding after a brutal 14-year civil war, the top United Nations envoy to the West African nation cautioned today. Nearly six weeks have passed since the launch of the identification and voter registration drive, which was slated to wrap up at the end of this month, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative Y. J. Choi told the Security Council in an open meeting.“Unfortunately, the pace of progress has been painfully slow,” he said. The pace will soon be accelerated, but “the magnitude of delay has taken almost everybody by surprise.”The elections process has become inseparable from the identification efforts, which are being held up due to both “bureaucratic red tape” and logistical complexity, with many players involved, Mr. Choi pointed out.“These two crucial and historic events are concomitantly unfolding in the country; 11 million people are expected to be identified with a very sophisticated identification mechanism and 9 million are expected to register as voters.”Although the delays are “preoccupying,” the Representative stressed the importance of not losing sight of the crucial progress that has been made thus far to consolidate stability.“Peace has been sufficiently restored so as to allow people to travel freely across the country,” he said, while all sides continue to be committed to the twin identification and electoral processes.Funding for them has already been secured, with the Government footing most of the $200 million bill, the envoy told the Council.During a recent visit to the country in what he described as a “heart-warming experience,” he said he stopped at several identification sites and met with people who had been lining up for hours to take part.The delays will “remain manageable as long as the momentum is kept alive,” since they are not due, for the first time, to political reasons, Mr. Choi noted.“The window of opportunity remains open. The question of ‘Ivorité’ has been at the heart of the troubled Ivorian politics for the last two decades will be resolved once and for all,” he said, adding that the country’s electoral process is now “irreversible.”The Representative called for the international community to boost its assistance to the country, and said that the UN peacekeeping operation in the country (known as UNOCI), which he heads, will continue to monitor civil disorder in the run-up to the completion of the identification process and the election results are announced.Today’s open meeting was followed by consultations on Côte d’Ivoire and on the work of the sanctions committee dealing with the country.Last week, a group of UN experts wrote in a report that weak political stability and security situation are at risk in Côte d’Ivoire.The publication by the Côte d’Ivoire Group of Experts warned the Council that security threats persist in the West African country because programmes to disarm combatants and dismantle militia remain largely incomplete.The Ouagadougou Agreement – signed in neighbouring Burkina Faso 18 months ago between the Government, which controlled the south, and the rebel Forces Nouvelles, which held the north – called for a number of measures to resolve the crisis that first divided the country in 2002. read more

Category: kuzkuihrvxwjoynj Canada suggests a deal on softwood lumber may lead it to drop

MONTREAL — The Canadian government has suggested it might drop its major international trade case against the U.S., if it gets a softwood lumber deal.Canada has filed a wide-ranging complaint to the World Trade Organization about the way the U.S. applies punitive tariffs, infuriating the Americans.U.S. trade czar Robert Lighthizer called it a “massive attack” on the American system of international trade.NAFTA talks make ‘headway’, but U.S. rejects Canadian auto proposal as poison pillBombardier stock soars to three-year high on stunning trade victory that opens U.S. market for CSeries‘Canada has just detonated a bomb’: Trade relations with U.S. plummet after WTO complaint“If it were successful, it would lead to more Chinese imports into the United States and likely fewer Canadian goods being sold in our market,” he said Monday at the end of NAFTA talks in MontrealForeign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said the case is directly tied to softwood lumber, where the U.S. imposed duties.“We are aware that the U.S. is concerned by our litigation. And to those concerns, I have a very clear response and a clear offer, which is: let’s sit down and let’s negotiate a softwood lumber deal,” the minister told reporters following her earlier appearance with Lighthizer and their Mexican counterpart, Ildefonso Guajardo.“I’m happy to start this afternoon.”A big challenge in reaching a softwood deal is that it’s not entirely up to the governments of Canada and the U.S.As part of any deal, the American lumber industry would need to sign off on the right to sue Canada again for punitive duties — and there’s no indication that’s happening. read more

Category: kuzkuihrvxwjoynj Why Trump asked Ukraines president about CrowdStrike

In his now-infamous July phone call with Ukraine’s president , President Donald Trump referred briefly to a long- discredited conspiracy theory that tries to cast doubt on Russia’s role in the 2016 hacking of the Democratic National Committee.Some Trump backers who circulate unsubstantiated rumours have latched onto some version of the theory to support claims he’s being persecuted by “the deep state,” also known as the federal bureaucracy, as the House of Representatives begins an impeachment inquiry.In broad outline, the theory contends — without evidence, of course — that the DNC hack was a setup based on fabricated computer records and designed to cast blame on Russia. One key figure in this supposed conspiracy: CrowdStrike, a security firm hired by the DNC that detected, stopped and analyzed the hack five months before the 2016 election.Here’s how Trump’s phone call brought this conspiracy back into currency.THE CALLDuring his July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, Trump made a brief and cryptic reference to CrowdStrike. According to a reconstructed transcript of the call released by the White House, which is not a verbatim account, he said:“I would like to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say CrowdStrike . I guess you have one of your wealthy people . The server, they say Ukraine has it.” Trump added that he’d like to have Attorney General William Barr call “you or your people and I would like you to get to the bottom of it.”THE FACTSCrowdStrike determined in June 2016 that Russian agents had broken into the committee’s network and stolen emails that were subsequently published by WikiLeaks. Its findings were confirmed by FBI investigators, with whom it later shared the forensic evidence.Based on those findings, Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicted 12 members of Russia’s military intelligence agency and later concluded that their operation sought to favour Trump’s candidacy .Mueller testified before the U.S. Congress the day before Trump’s phone call with Zelenskiy.In the call, Trump mentioned Mueller’s “incompetent performance” and said “they say it started with Ukraine.”THE FICTIONSUkraine and Russia have been bitter foes since Russia’s 2014 military intervention and annexation of Crimea. Unsubstantiated conspiracy theories about a purported Ukrainian link to the DNC hack began circulating almost immediately after it was discovered.Some propagated by Russian media and online included mention of a supposed “hidden DNC server,” which acolytes of the Republican political operative Roger Stone picked up and circulated.Stone is set to stand trial in November for allegedly lying to Congress, obstructing justice and witness tampering after getting swept up in the Mueller probe. He has claimed that CrowdStrike is concealing evidence that could presumably clear Russia of culpability.A judge recently denied Stone’s efforts to challenge the investigation into the hack. Stone sought to suppress search warrants that he alleged were based on faulty assumptions from CrowdStrike, but U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson said there was no evidence anyone in the FBI had “played fast and loose with the truth” in applying for the warrants.In fact, CrowdStrike has also worked for the GOP. It helped the National Republican Congressional Committee investigate email thefts by unidentified hackers during the 2018 campaign, the company told the AP in December.THE UKRAINIAN CONNECTIONOne version of the conspiracy theory holds that CrowdStrike is owned by a wealthy Ukrainian. In fact, company co-founder Dmitri Alperovitch is a Russian-born U.S. citizen who immigrated as a child and graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology.Trump himself has made this erroneous reference before.In an April 2017 interview with The Associated Press, Trump said: “Why wouldn’t (former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John) Podesta and Hillary Clinton allow the FBI to see the server? They brought in another company that I hear is Ukrainian-based.”“CrowdStrike?” the interviewer asked.“That’s what I heard,” Trump replied. “I heard it’s owned by a very rich Ukrainian, that’s what I heard. But they brought in another company to investigate the server. Why didn’t they allow the FBI in to investigate the server? I mean, there is so many things that nobody writes about. It’s incredible.”WHY IT MATTERSThe reference raises questions about Trump’s ability — or, perhaps, willingness— to sort between fact and fiction, analysts say.“If we take Trump’s words at face value, then it appears that the president of the United States is intellectually unable to distinguish between utterly outlandish conspiracy theories and solid intelligence assessments based on facts,” said Thomas Rid, a Johns Hopkins security studies professor.Joan Donovan of Harvard University said conspiracy theories generally have two principal attributes: They simplify matters and lack attribution. And some political actors see a benefit to encouraging them.“Who can know the truth in these conditions? No one,” said Donovan, who directs the Kennedy School’s technology and social change research project.CrowdStrike said in a statement that it “provided all forensic evidence and analysis to the FBI.” It added: “We stand by our findings and conclusions that have been fully supported by the US Intelligence community.”—Associated Press writer Eric Tucker in Washington contributed to this report.Frank Bajak, The Associated Press read more

Category: kuzkuihrvxwjoynj DR of Congo parties in Ituri region sign ceasefire under UN auspices

The agreement was signed in the town of Bunia – the site of recent power struggles between rebel groups and armed militias – by representatives of the Congolese and Ugandan Governments, as well as the rebel groups, according to the UN Organization Mission in the DRC (MONUC). Following the signing under the auspices of Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s top envoy in the region, Amos Namanga Ngongi, the parties were set to open talks aimed at launching a preparatory committee for the establishment of the long-awaited Ituri Pacification Commission. That proposed administrative panel – delayed several times by fighting between various rebel factions and militias – will have the power to ensure the security of Bunia’s population, and eventually, will aim to secure a total and definite withdrawal of Ugandan troops from the DRC. read more

Category: kuzkuihrvxwjoynj FEATURE UN volunteer in Mali advocates for detainees rights

UN Volunteer Joseph Agbor Effim (center) briefing colleagues in Bamako, Mali. Photo: MINUSMA Mr. Effim, a 37-year-old from Cameroon, served in Kidal as a Judicial Affairs Officer with the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA). In a town where the justice system had collapsed, he was responsible for monitoring the treatment of detainees and advocating for their rights to be respected.“I monitored detainee rights violations and the treatment that was given to detainees in all detention facilities,” he said in a phone interview with the UN News Centre. These facilities include those controlled by the police, the gendarmerie and the rebel groups. Mr. Effim organized sessions with both State interlocutors and members of various rebel groups to encourage them to rebuild the judicial system and to restore the rule of law. He tried to explain the mandate of MINUSMA and to advocate for the respect of international human rights law.Asked what motivated him to become a UN Volunteer, Mr. Effim, who has several years of experience in judicial affairs, said he wanted to “put his skills at the service of humanity and contribute to peace and development in the fields of justice, human rights and child protection.”He noted that the environment in Kidal was not easy to deal with but he felt that he could do something “by talking to the rebels and making them understand that even though people are detained, their rights must be protected.” He also tried to impress upon them ‘good practices’ or acceptable standards in relation to detention. “I tried to create a cordial relationship with these rebel factions and they accepted me,” he added. Mr. Effim said he was glad that he could bring his experience “to the service of Mali, a nation that had just emerged from conflict.” He also learned a lot in the position in Kidal which enabled him to “experience the challenges of what it takes to work in the field.”His stay in Kidal lasted only a few months. In May 2014, following clashes between rebels and Malian armed forces, he was redeployed to the capital, Bamako, to a MINUSMA unit responsible for collecting information and statistics on the rule of law in Mali.For people who are considering becoming a UN Volunteer, Mr. Effim noted that his experience allowed him to, among other things, meet people from different backgrounds. “You increase your ability to deal with people from various parts of the world. You can learn a new language,” he said. The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme, based in the German city of Bonn, contributes to peace and development through volunteerism worldwide. It is active in around 130 countries every year.UNV’s recent report – The State of the World’s Volunteerism Report 2015 – highlighted the fact that volunteers are playing a vital role in making governments worldwide more accountable and responsive to their citizens.Mr. Effim plans to stay at least another year in Mali. Then, if his contract is not renewed, he may return to his country. But no matter what, he will continue to “advocate for the rights of people to be protected.” read more

Category: kuzkuihrvxwjoynj Watch Astrophysics Breakthrough Announcement

first_imgStay on target Tune in tomorrow as a team of international astrophysicists unveil a “breakthrough” discovery.The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) is hosting a press conference to announce recent “multi-messenger astrophysics findings,” led by the IceCube Neutrino Observatory lab in the South Pole.Details are scant—by which I mean non-existent; officials didn’t even give a sneak peek at what this “breakthrough” entails.The appropriately named IceCube lab consists of 86 cables extending 1.5 miles into the Antarctic ice. Each string holds 60 Digital Optical Modules, designed to detect emissions from rare interactions between neutrinos (neutral particles that interact weakly with other types of matter) and water-ice molecules.Trillions of neutrinos stream through Earth every second, making them a challenge to find—a challenge the IceCube Neutrino Observatory has bravely undertaken.As of November 2013, IceCube identified 28 neutrinos that likely originated outside the Solar System. Perhaps today’s reveal will follow a similar theme?The event, moderated by NSF director France Córdova, will feature leading astrophysicists—including representatives from nearly two dozen observatories on Earth and in space.Visit the NSF YouTube channel at 11 a.m. ET to watch the briefing live.Panelists include: Francis Halzen, IceCube principal investigator, University of Wisconsin-Madison Regina Caputo, Fermi-LAT analysis coordinator, University of Maryland/NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Razmik Mirzoyan, MAGIC spokesperson, Max Planck Institute for Physics Olga Botner, former IceCube spokesperson, Uppsala UniversityMulti-messenger astrophysics, as described by Space.com, refers to the use of two or more different types of signals to observe a cosmic object or phenomenon.IceCube’s multi-messenger program—which targets detection of transient sources in real time—sends alerts of high-energy neutrino events (called multiplets).“In collaboration with other observatories, we aim at identifying the electromagnetic counterpart of a rapidly fading source or coincident gravitational waves,” the website said.While we watch today’s announcement from the comfort of our desk chairs and the summer heat, scientists at the South Pole are still finding their way through the darkness of winter—but under a beautifully starry sky.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Category: kuzkuihrvxwjoynj Lewd dancing at Govt school being investigated says Bahamas MOE

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#lewddancingatgovernmentschool, #magneticmedianews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, October 25, 2017 – Nassau – It is not the first time dirty dancing has taken place on a public school campus, but in the era where everyone with a cell phone is not only a camera person but a news reporter – the lewd dancing is making headlines in The Bahamas and the world can see it.    The session unravels on a stage in the general area of a government high school, on what appears to be dress up day.A DJ is leading the dancing which is first demonstrated by who appears to be an older woman, then followed up by teenage girls who mount the stage from among the throngs of students looking on.    The crowd of students cheer as all of the females take turns in gyrating their hips; the faster the motion, the louder the cheers.The Ministry of Education is concerned about the filming and the incident and at 4:30pm issued a statement to say they are investigating.   The succinct statement says:  “The Ministry of Education is aware of a video circulating on social media in which it appears that students are dancing inappropriately, on a public school campus.   We await the findings of an internal investigation to determine what future course of action will be taken.”The school is not named by the Ministry, but on social media – H.O. Nash in Stapledon Gardens, Nassau is fingered for the vexing display.   Within three hours, the video was shared 76 times and seen over 7,700 times.   Comments on the video posted to Bahamas News range from its no big deal because it was the students’ funday, to references to Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival which promoted gyrating in the streets of Nassau to this one, “Dj’s have been to school Fun Days for decades.  From primary school straight to high school.  This is nothing new why are we continuing to act like it is?!? Nothing that is taking place in no way is new, the only thing that is new is now videos have access to social media for everyone to view.”#MagneticMediaNews#lewddancingatgovernmentschoollast_img read more

Bethany Case with the Surfrider Foundation and co-founder of the South Bay Clean Water Movement, told reporters the park isn’t yet suitable for further development.“This area is beautiful. We would love to have a campground here — but we need to solve this problem first,” she said. “Where are you going to go to the beach, … you’re going to go to water that’s contaminated. It just doesn’t make sense.”According to Surfrider, the closest beach to the proposed campground, the Tijuana Slough Shoreline, closed for 167 days in 2017 due to poor water quality related to sewage flows that have plagued South Bay waterways for decades. The beach has closed 64 days so far this year. Case was joined at a news conference Tuesday by members of Citizens Against Sewage, San Diego County Democrats for Environmental Action and the National Border Patrol Council, as well as former Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher, who is running for a District 4 supervisor seat that includes much of the city of San Diego.Fletcher said the benefits of outdoor recreation in the Tijuana River Valley are negated by its condition. He called on county officials to better protect the area’s natural resources.To wash your spirit clean by enjoying our amazing beaches — you need beaches that aren’t closed by contamination and pollution,” he said. “It’s time for the county of San Diego to step up its commitment for clean water. It’s time for them to start cracking down on polluters. It’s time for them to be a leader in calling for the federal government to take action.”Campground construction is expected to begin summer 2019. Supervisor Greg Cox has long advocated for construction of the Tijuana River Valley campground. In a statement to reporters, he said county staff are conducting an environmental review of the site, and will seek a new location if it isn’t deemed suitable.In May, the Surfrider Foundation filed a 60-day notice of intent to sue the International Boundary and Water Commission, a binational agency charged with overseeing efforts to stem ongoing pollution. The foundation argued the commission hasn’t done enough to address water infrastructure that has allowed millions of gallons of sewage to flow into the United States. center_img Surfrider Foundation and other groups oppose Tijuana River Valley campground Updated: 5:51 PM KUSI Newsroom last_img read more

Category: kuzkuihrvxwjoynj Logitechs new wireless gaming mouse aims to be faster than wired mice

first_imgFor years, the conventional wisdom in the gaming community has been that if you want the fastest and most lag-free gaming experience, you needed a wired mouse. A few companies have released wireless gaming mice, with varying degrees of success. Now, input heavyweight Logitech is releasing a new wireless gaming mouse called the G900 Chaos Spectrum that it claims is even faster than regular wired gaming mice. I went hands-on with this mouse and compared it to one of the latest wired options to see if the age of wired gaming mice has come to an end.The basicsIgnoring the wireless aspect for a moment, the G900 is one of the most full-featured gaming mice I’ve ever used. The left and right buttons have mechanical switches manufactured by Omron and a hinged button surface for an extremely consistent tactile experience. The scroll wheel is one of Logitech’s hyper-scrolling designs, which I have been a fan of for years. On the left and right are spots for two buttons each, but these are optional. The buttons connect via magnets, so you can have them on both sides, just one, or none. You can pick your layout in the Logitech Gaming software suite. There are also two small buttons between the main buttons that cycle through your chosen DPI modes.Another thing that’s always made wireless gaming mice less desirable for me is the weight. The G900 is lighter than even a lot of wired mice at barely over 100g. By comparison, the Razer Ouroboros is 135g with the battery. Even the M65 Pro I’m testing with is heavier, though it does have optional weights that can make it heavier if you like that.Logitech worked to make the structure of the G900 very light, but the biggest step in that direction was using a smaller battery than other wireless mice have. I was initially skeptical about this — Logitech’s marketing focuses on gaming, and claims you can get up to 32 hours of use. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but what they actually mean is 36 hours of active use. You can play 36 hours of games, moving the mouse constantly. I’ve been getting four to five days of mixed use with the G900, both gaming and regular computer use. The Logitech software also breaks down your power usage so you can tweak it to extend life.The end of wires?Let’s get down to business — this is a wireless gaming mouse, so how can it be faster than a wired one? Logitech engineered a new RF radio specifically for this mouse, which when combined with the switches, allows your inputs to be registered a few milliseconds faster than conventional wired gaming mice. The main drawback here is that the receiver is only for the G900. It doesn’t support Bluetooth, and no other devices can use the same dongle.I can’t speak to whether there is a 5ms difference between the G900 and the mouse I’m using as a control (the Corsair M65 Pro RGB), but I do think they are on equal footing when it comes to speed. Both mice have 12,000 DPI sensors with configurable profiles. I like that the Corsair mouse has a “sniper” button that toggles on a lower DPI for fine control. However, you can set up a custom version of that on the G900. The accuracy is on-par too. I feel like I’m using a wired mouse when I’m gaming with the G900. The thing is, the M65 is less than half the price of the G900.If you’ve used wireless gaming mice, you might have noticed the connection can get glitchy at times. I know I have, which is why I’ve never been completely happy them. Logitech says it has engineered the G900 to have a stronger connection and better tracking than other mice. It has testing data to back that up, for what it’s worth. In real world use, I’ve been happy with the G900’s connectivity. My use case is kind of unusual as I often have multiple phones and tablets on my desk for testing, and all the RF can actually interfere with some wireless devices. The G900 hasn’t missed a step yet.So, the G900 Chaos Spectrum stands up to the latest wired mice, at least for me. That’s great, but you’ll pay handsomely for the privilege of leaving your wire behind. Logitech is charging $150 for this mouse, which is on-par with other wireless gaming mice (MSRP) in the past. Not everyone is going to be okay with that when excellent wired gaming mice like the Corsair M65 Pro RGB can be had for $60 or less. Still, if you need a high-end wireless mouse, the G900 is the one to get. If you don’t need a wireless mouse, I’d suggest getting the great value M65 Pro.last_img read more
