Terror attacks must be seen as crimes against humanity Robinson

In an interview with UN Radio, Mary Robinson, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, said the perpetrators of the 11 September attacks must face trial. “The deliberate commandeering of civil aircraft to kill people with full gasoline tanks and crashing them deliberately into buildings with thousands of people with the intent to kill as many as possible crosses a line and fits the definition now of a crime against humanity, and that passes an immediate responsibility on all governments of the world to help to bring perpetrators to justice,” she said. Mrs. Robinson told UN Radio that if the perpetrators were tried for having committed crimes against humanity, they would be isolated. “You cannot in the name of a religion commit a crime against humanity, so they cannot invoke Islam for these acts,” she pointed out. “The perpetrators committed a crime against humanity and hopefully this will diminish the way in which they are now trying to have a holy jihad with impressionable young people – I think it’s much harder to try and do this when it’s a crime against humanity.” The High Commissioner also expressed concern about the situation facing the Afghan civilian population. “I think its important that we try to get a balance between the military strategy and trying to ensure that there are not more indirect victims to add to the terrible victims – more than 6,000 killed and families decimated here in the US – we mustn’t see thousands of Afghan civilians also indirectly dying as a result of not being able to get the food and shelter they need to face the winter,” she said. read more

Torstar banks on app as replacement for dwindling print circulation

by Aleksandra Sagan, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 2, 2016 5:41 am MDT Last Updated Nov 2, 2016 at 11:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Torstar banks on app as replacement for dwindling print circulation TORONTO – The company that owns the Toronto Star newspaper will continue to funnel millions of dollars into its tablet app despite failing to muster the audience it hoped for since its launch more than a year ago.“We remain committed to the initiative,” Torstar Corp.’s acting president and publisher David Holland told a conference call with analysts after the company released its third-quarter earnings results Wednesday.The audience for its Star Touch app is growing modestly, he said, but offered no update on the numbers released last quarter when it said between 55,000 and 60,000 readers access it weekly.He added that the current audience levels aren’t going to yield the revenue they had projected.Still, the company has invested millions of dollars in the initiative, including $10.1 million in the first nine months of this year.It plans to spend $1.5 million more on Star Touch in the fourth quarter — down from $9.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 — and between $2 million and $4 million for all of 2017.The Toronto Star, one of the most widely circulated papers in Canada, is preparing for its print circulation to drop further and the tablet app will be an important alternative for people to continue to access the paper’s news, Holland said.“This gives our readers a place to go,” he said. “So laying that foundation now makes a lot of sense to us.”Holland’s comments came the day Torstar reported its first quarterly profit since the quarter ending Dec. 31, 2014.Torstar (TSX:TS.B) reported a $1.4-million profit attributable to shareholders for the third quarter, helped by cost reductions and $53.6 million from the sale of its Vaughan printing plant.But it said its Metroland and Star groups continue to face a challenging market for print advertising in the early stages of the fourth quarter.The profit amounted to two cents per share compared with a loss attributable to shareholders of $164.3 million or $2.05 per share a year ago.Torstar’s total operating revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30 was $162.1 million, down from $185.4 million a year earlier.After adjustments, Torstar had a loss of eight cents per share in this year’s third quarter and 13 cents per share in last year’s third quarter.Over the first nine months of 2016, Torstar cut 570 positions — including at the printing plant — and expects $34.0 million of annualized savings by the end of 2017 including $9.9 million in the fourth quarter of this year.Holland said the company feels it’s made some progress this quarter as it transitions to a more digitally-oriented earnings base.Torstar publishes several newspapers, including the Toronto Star, through its Star Media Group and Metroland Media Group. It also operates dozens of digital businesses, including a 56 per cent interest in VerticalScope.___Torstar holds an investment in The Canadian Press as part of a joint agreement with a subsidiary of the Globe and Mail and the parent company of Montreal’s La Presse.Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter read more

Central African Republic Arbitrary killings sexual violence cited in new UN human

Central African Republic: Arbitrary killings, sexual violence cited in new UN human rights report Violations and abuses of international human rights and humanitarian law in the Central African Republic (CAR), which include arbitrary killings, sexual violence and inhuman treatment, continue to plague the country, according to a United Nations report published today. During the period covered, which includes the final six months of the Transitional Government, the UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA) recorded 1,301 cases of human rights violations and abuses affecting at least 2,473 victims throughout the country, including 1,000 men, 261 women, 91 boys and 67 girls, with a further 808 unidentified adults and 246 victims whose age and gender could not be fully verified.“Notorious criminals and killers must be brought to justice, no matter what group they belong to, both to halt their depredations and to provide deterrence,” said High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein on 4 September 2015 in Bangui in a statement featured at the beginning of the “Report on the Human Rights Situation in the Central African Republic from 01 June 2015 – 31 March 2016.” The report describes violations and abuses, such as arbitrary deprivation of liberty, destruction and confiscation of property, and restrictions on the right to freedom of movement. It confirmed that the main perpetrators continued to be armed elements from the Anti-Balaka, ex-Séléka, the Front démocratique du peuple centrafricain, Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), and Fulani affiliated with Retour réclamation et réhabilitation and the Révolution et Justice. During the reporting period, the LRA increased its criminal activities in the southeast CAR. Government security and defence forces were also responsible for arbitrary killings, ill-treatment and arbitrary arrest and detention. The report highlights that the protection of civilians was hampered by the very limited presence of State institutions, particularly outside of Bangui. This situation has had a negative impact on the fight against impunity, as those responsible for grave violations of international human rights and humanitarian law have not been held accountable.The report, which MINUSCA released during a time of marked escalation of violence by armed groups in the eastern, central and western parts of the country, makes recommendations to the authorities and international community to strengthen the fight against impunity in the country. Since August 2016, the UN Mission has recorded an alarming increase in the number of incidents of human rights abuses and violations of international humanitarian law perpetrated by the different factions of the ex-Séléka, the Anti-Balaka, and their affiliates, which have resulted in at least 100 killings, forced civilian displacement and the destruction of property. The incidents have particularly affected Kaga Bandoro and Bria. In addition to their violent attacks, armed groups throughout the country have continued to occupy schools, establish illegal checkpoints, and arbitrarily deprive civilians of their liberty. Despite peaceful elections and a legitimate government, civilian protection continues to be hampered by limited State authority, particularly in the areas affected by the recent escalation of violence. Perpetrators of grave violations of international human rights and humanitarian law continue to benefit from widespread impunity. MINUSCA and members of the international community will continue to support the extension of State authority and to end impunity through the establishment of the Special Criminal Court. read more

Bailiffs to be legally required to wear bodyworn cameras amid fears they

Bailiffs will be required by law to wear body worn cameras amid fears they are intimidating and threatening householders.The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) is also considering a new regulator to clean up the industry amid evidence that a third of people in debt visited by bailiffs have subjected to “harmful” behaviour including illegal threats to break into their homes.Justice Minister Paul Maynard said: “The use of intimidation and aggression by some bailiffs is utterly unacceptable, and it is right we do all we can to tackle such behaviour.“Whilst most bailiffs act above board, body-worn cameras will provide greater security for all involved – not least consumers who are often vulnerable.“We are looking carefully at other measures to improve the system and will not hesitate to take action where necessary.”More than 2.3m debts were referred to bailiffs in 2016/17, according to data obtained through Freedom of Information requests by the Money Advice Trust charity. Enforcement agents are allowed to charge £75 for sending a letter and £235 for a home visit, further inflating people’s debtsCitizens Advice estimated that 39 per cent, or 850,000, of the 2.2 million people contacted by bailiffs in the last two years had seen bailiffs break the rules.These included telling people they can break entry into their house when they did not have the right to do that, or threatening to take control of “exempt” goods. These are goods that belong to someone else or which people need for their trade.One of the most graphic cases cited by the MoJ is motorcycle courier Jerome Rogers, 19, who took his life after a £65 debt spiralled into a £1000 debt. A bailiff had been outside his house for two and a half hours on the day he committed suicide by hanging himself.Ministers say compulsory body worn video will provide victims of bullying tactics with evidence to support complaints and to demand action.It will also provide reputable bailiffs with evidence to contest false complaints by householders seeking to avoid repaying their debts.They are now widely used by the police, providing evidence to secure convictions or longer sentences when juries or judges are shown the scale of abuse or violence that officers have faced.Further measures including a 30-day “cooling off” period where vulnerable debtors interest is frozen and the debt will not be pursued.

Sixway split Lotto winner had been using the same numbers since 1988

first_imgTHE FIRST LOTTO jackpot winning claimant to come forward following last Saturday’s record-setting shared top prize has revealed he’s been using the same numbers for the last 26 years.In an astronomically unlikely turn of events, the €3.5 million jackpot is being shared between six ticket holders. The winners will get €588,144 each, rather than the €3,528,865 jackpot.In the eight years since the National Lottery introduced the current 45 number game, the previous highest number of ticket-holders to share a jackpot was three.“I checked the results on Saturday night and I couldn’t believe it,” the winning ticket-holder said.“I got a print out of the numbers and then I showed it to my wife and said, ‘would you look at that, I’ve only gone and won the Lotto’.“I couldn’t be happier with the amount – it is a great sum of money and I’m delighted that five others have been lucky like me.”The winner, who is from Meath but declined to have his name publicly disclosed, bought his ticket in Newgate Stores Mace in Navan on the day of the draw.He said he had played the same numbers since the Lotto began in 1988 — and it’s not the first time he’s had to accept a share of a stated prize amount.“I won €2,000 a couple of years ago and then about 10 years back I got five numbers.  Another 24 people had the same numbers too, so I got €122.”Just how unlikely is the six-way split? There’s more chance of Bono becoming Pope…Perhaps surprisingly, the most popular sequence played in Saturday night’s draw was 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.If those numbers had been drawn out, the jackpot would have been split 531 ways — into shares of just over €6,645 each.The second most popular choice of numbers was 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 — a sequence chosen by 455 people, each of whom would have netted €7,755 each if that draw was made.However, the numbers that matter are the ones that were drawn out, so if you have a ticket bearing this particular sequence — well, you might want to contact Lotto HQ:4, 5, 13, 21, 29, 37The other winning tickets were sold in Dunnes Stores at Redmond Square in Wexford; the Seabury Centra in Malahide; Meaneys Centra in Dromcollogher, Co Limerick; Supervalu, Greystones, Wicklow; and JJ O’Driscoll’s Superstore in Ballinlough, Cork.The winners have 90 days from the date of the draw to claim their prizes.Read: Ever wonder how likely you are to win on a scratch card?Read: Did you win €1 million in the Christmas Lotto draw?last_img read more

DHL awards twoyear pay deal to Gatwickbased EasyJet ground staff

DHL awards twoyear pay deal to Gatwickbased EasyJet ground staff

first_imgApproximately 1,000 ground staff and baggage handlers working for EasyJet at Gatwick Airport, who are directly employed by logistics organisation DHL, are to receive a two-year pay deal.The pay offer, which was negotiated with trade union Unite, totals a 7.5% pay rise over the two years. Unite members will additionally receive a £500 bonus each year and an increase in overtime payments, which includes earning double time for working on bank holidays. The organisation’s sick pay policy has also been improved.The new pay deal means that an average employee is expected to receive a £2,000 increase in pay in the first year of the deal, including the new bonus.A spokesperson at DHL said: “Working with Unite the Union, we are pleased to have agreed a deal that recognises the hard work of our [employees] in the Gatwick operation for EasyJet. The deal represents another step in our journey to become the employer of choice in the area and ensure we continue to support our customers’ future needs.”Jamie Major, regional officer at Unite, said: “Baggage handlers and ground staff employed by DHL have negotiated a significant boost in pay well above the rate of inflation. During the pay talks, Unite and DHL worked constructively to develop a transparent pay strategy which is fair and gives [employees] the opportunity to progress.“Unite’s organising strategy has meant that hundreds of new members joined the union, which in turn gave Unite more influence during negotiations. This above inflation pay deal once again shows that when pay is falling flat across the economy it pays to be in a union.”DHL was unavailable for comment at time of publication.last_img read more

Musicians render ragas for timely rains

Musicians render ragas for timely rains

first_imgChilkur: A musical prayer under the aegis of the Temples Protection Movement was organised here at the banks of Gandipet Lake. Priest of Balaji temple Rangarajan along with musicians and enthusiasts rendered Amruthavarshini, Megharanjani, Malhar etc., ragas for the sake of rains.Speaking on the occasion, Rangarajan said almost 33 days of the monsoon season was lost in dry spell. Farmers are in distress and water crisis is looming large. That is why we prayed in this traditional way for the rains, he added. “Traditionally at Chilkur, we have prayed with these ragas for rains.

Emmy AwardWinning VR Short Film Henry Released on Oculus Go

Emmy AwardWinning VR Short Film Henry Released on Oculus Go

first_img“Henry” was the second VR short produced by Oculus Story Studio, an immersive storytelling unit that was ultimately closed as Facebook focused on cooperations with third-party companies instead. Some of the original team members of Story Studio have since moved on to form Fable, an immersive studio that premiered its first project at Sundance earlier this year. Facebook just re-released a virtual reality (VR) classic for its new Oculus Go headset: “Henry,” the animated tale of a hedgehog who just wants to be loved, was released for free for the Go Monday.“Henry,” which is being narrated by Elijah Wood, first premiered in July of 2015. The film became available on the company’s Oculus Rift VR headset when it started to ship in early 2016. It was awarded an Emmy for best outstanding original interactive program that same year, becoming the first VR piece to win such an honor.“Henry” has been produced in Unity, and was originally optimized for PC-based VR playback. For its Oculus Go release, it got remastered to play on lower-powered hardware, thanks to new technology developed by Oculus CTO John Carmack. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

This week in the Peace Corps Moving Out in Costa Rica

This week in the Peace Corps Moving Out in Costa Rica

first_imgUpon arrival in Costa Rica, as part of our three months of training before being sent to our permanent sites, all aspiring Peace Corps Volunteers (PCVs) are placed with host families.They are our first connection in the country we will call home for the next 27 months, and as such, they help PCVs with our language training and support us as we explore the ins and outs of the Costa Rican culture.After we arrive at our permanent sites we live with a second host family for the first six months of service. This allows us to fully integrate into our communities, build connections, improve our language skills, and hopefully create a support system in site. The garden (Photo courtesy of Peace Corps Costa Rica)Costa Ricans have taught me the true value of family, they frequently all live together or near each other, and are always there to help one another no matter what, because family comes first. My second host family has seven people aging from one to 80 years old who live under the same roof, not counting myself or the numerous relatives that visit on a daily basis. This leaves very little space for privacy and independence, something I always cherished as an only child. So, when I learned that I could move out after six months I immediately started scouting my community for the perfect place. Nine months of living with host families in a new culture can be exciting and exhausting at the same time. I learned how to live like a real local. I got to try new foods and learned how to cook some of them. I improved my Spanish and learned a few necessary words and sentences in the indigenous language.I am immensely thankful to my host family for opening their house and lives to a complete stranger. I adapted to their culture and customs as best I could. But, growing up in a culture that values independence and personal space I knew I would be more than ready to move out as soon as I could. PCV Savannah’s home for the final 18 months of her service (Photo courtesy of Peace Corps Costa Rica)Finding a place where I would feel safe and that complied with all of the Peace Corps safety specifications was no easy task, but I had luck by my side. My host aunt, who no longer lives in town, agreed to sublet me her old house located in my host family’s backyard. Not only did she make the changes required by Peace Corps, but I was able to remain near to my host family – if that isn’t luck I don’t know what is.Moving out can be costly, especially when you live in a remote area like I do. Luckily my new house came with most of the basic necessities, which allowed me to invest a little extra in things such as painting the interior of the house to cover all of the graffiti-like art my host nieces had drawn over the years. Note to self: painting a house always sounds like a good idea, but it is in fact not, you may end up with more paint on your clothes and hair than on your walls. (Photo courtesy of Peace Corps of Costa Rica)I have now lived in my house for a few months, and it’s been a learning experience. I’ve learned that no matter how well you seal things sugar ants will always find a way into them. I’ve learned unfortunately just how much poop geckos can produce on a daily basis. I have also learned to cook on an open fire pit and to burn my trash (which breaks my heart every time, but I have no other choice since we have no trash pick-up in my small, rural community) – it’s been a wonderful and trying experience – just like Peace Corps service.The Peace Corps photo series in The Tico Times Costa Rica Changemakers section is sponsored by the Costa Rica USA Foundation for Cooperation (CRUSA), a proud financial supporter of Peace Corps Volunteer projects nationwide.

AIPA against Virgin capital raising

AIPA against Virgin capital raising

first_imgThe Australian and International Pilots Association (AIPA) says it is “deeply concerned” with Virgin Australia’s foreign ownership split and Australia’s dated aviation policy settings. “Our laws and regulations were not designed so that the interests of foreign-government backed airlines would be placed at a significant advantage to the national flag carrier,” AIPA president Nathan Safe said. “For years, AIPA has argued that Qantas forms a key plank of Australia’s national interest, and the government must ensure its vital role in boosting our economy, providing quality employment, and adding to our national security infrastructure.” Source = ETB News: P.T. AIPA has called for a policy review, claiming Virgin Australia’s AU$350 million capital raising venture is not consistent with the intent of Australia’s laws or the national interest. “We must get ahead of the game to avoid the need to repeat for international aviation what was required to support our ailing shipping industry,” Mr Safe said. AIPA argues that Australia’s current policy settings are obsolete, affirming the Australian Government recognise that international aviation needs a more equalised playing field.last_img read more

first_imgPresident Nicos Anastasiades is expected to be the winner of January’s presidential elections a poll published on Sunday said, while Akel-backed independent candidate, Stavros Malas, was for the first time tipped to make the second round.According to a poll carried out by Noverna, on behalf of Politis, Malas, for the first time, edges ahead of Diko leader Nicolas Papadopoulos, who had been consistently second in the polls so far. Only a recent poll for CyBC’s had the two men tied in second place, both with a 13.5 per cent share.The poll showed Anastasiades way ahead with 30.4 per cent of the vote, while Malas received 17.8 per cent and Papadopoulos 13.8per cent.The survey also showed candidate of far right Elam, Christos Christou, taking 3.3per cent, ahead of the leader of Citizens’ Alliance Yiorgos Lillikas who was on 2.1per cent. Bank bondholders’ candidate Phivos Mavrovouniotis was on 1.1 per cent.Assuming the undecided “move proportionally to the rates, then in the first Sunday vote Anastasiades is expected to move at around 44per cent, Malas at 25per cent and Nikolas Papadopoulos at 20per cent,” Noverna said.In the run-off election, Anastasiades was forecasted to win the contest with either opponents, the poll found.In an Anastasiades-Papadopoulos showdown, the president would take 37.3per cent of the vote and Papadopoulos 26.7 per cent.
