UN relief agencies report slow improvement in Iraq but situation still precarious

A new corridor for food supplies was opened, more doctors were returning to hospitals, water supply had improved and the electricity was back on in scattered areas of Baghdad.This was a very positive sign, although most of the city remained in darkness, and this continued to affect hospitals, the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) told the daily briefing in Amman, Jordan, on UN humanitarian activities.“The news we’re getting from our staff in Baghdad today is marginally more reassuring,” spokesman Geoffrey Keele said. “Our officers tell us that the condition of the health and other vital public services is no longer deteriorating, and that the situation is starting to stabilize. But things have stabilized at a very low level that still leaves the most vulnerable section of Iraqi society – its children – at great risk. Many needs remain to be met.”He said UNICEF staff were approached today by Education Ministry officials seeking help in restarting the country’s education system, and the agency hoped to get a positive response from coalition authorities soon. But, he warned, despite these improvements, a return to normal life in Iraq remained a long way off.The UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq (UNOHCI) also said the humanitarian situation was slowly improving but remained precarious. In Baghdad, the lack of security continued to impede activities by UN agencies, spokesman David Wimhurst said. Water was now being supplied to most parts of the city, but the sanitation situation remains extremely critical and threatened public health, he added.The World Health Organization (WHO) reported that health assessments in Baghdad, Tikrit and Mosul showed the situation was improving, but still tense. The WHO Baghdad office was operational, with staff working in temporary premises with communications and computer equipment since the previous office was completely damaged and looted, spokesperson Fadela Chaib said. WHO had recovered two of its looted vehicles and would continue to work to recover other vehicles around the city.The World Food Programme (WFP) announced the opening of a new food corridor into Iraq, its fourth, with the departure of 20 trucks from Damascus, Syria, for Mosul with 1,000 tons of wheat flour, enough for more than 110,000 people for a month. The WFP shipped food into Iraq from Jordan and Iran over the weekend and has been operating a corridor into northern Iraq from Turkey for almost three weeks. read more

Malnutrition jeopardizes Asias tremendous economic potential – UN

“Malnutrition will be a millstone around the neck of the countries in their progress toward economic prosperity,” World Food Programme (WFP) Deputy Executive Director Sheila Sisulu told the opening session of a regional conference on maternal and child malnutrition in New Delhi. “It is vital for everyone to play their part in making sure women and children, particularly adolescent girls, get proper nourishment,” she added, noting that Asia’s catastrophic malnutrition levels are the single greatest barrier to the evolution of a modern, knowledge-based work force that can manage the economic powerhouse it has the promise to become. WFP and the Indian Government are co-hosting the three-day conference – the Regional Ministerial Consultation on Maternal and Child Nutrition in Asian Countries – which focuses on food and nutrition as a top priority in poverty-reduction strategies. Ms. Sisulu explained that a mother weakened by iron and vitamin A deficiency cannot give her children the upbringing needed to complete their education and achieve their full social and economic potential. As the primary caregiver of the family, a mother needs essential micronutrients in order to do her job well. It is also crucial for infants and young children to get good nutrition at this vital stage of their development, she said, pointing out that malnutrition in early childhood undermines children’s physical stature and cognitive abilities and impedes their performance in school. Undernourished adolescent girls bear underweight babies, who then continue the insidious cycle of malnutrition into the next generation. “Adolescent girls are the vital link in the chain to the future of Asia,” she declared. Noting that fortified foods can be made available at affordable prices for the poor, like Indiamix, the low-cost blended infant food pioneered in India by WFP, she urged countries with a nutrition crisis to increase the fortification of staple foodstuffs lacking micronutrients, so that the poor get the necessary vitamins and minerals. According to UN statistics, more than 500 million Asians do not get enough food to meet daily needs for nutritional well-being. Micronutrient deficiencies are especially serious: babies are born mentally retarded as a result of iodine deficiency, children go blind and die of vitamin A deficiency, and enormous numbers of women and children are sapped by iron deficiency anaemia. At the same time, World Bank studies show that productivity losses due to various types of malnutrition in low-income Asian countries constitute about two to three percent of the Gross National Product (and eight per cent in Bangladesh). read more

UN emergency teams on ground in earthquakestricken Iranian region

“Our priority at this stage is to find out what the needs are on the ground, particularly regarding women and children,” said UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) country representative Kari Egge, who was travelling in the area at the time and went immediately to the site, where she saw a whole village completely wiped out.”Here in the village of Dohan all the houses have been completely destroyed. It is cold and rainy so supplies such as shelter, food, water and blankets are essential,” she added.A World Health Organization (WHO) field team is also in Zarand, the main town in the area, while technical staff are providing support for disease surveillance teams.The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has been informed that weather conditions in the region are difficult, with heavy snowfall resulting in a number of road blockages.UNICEF is working very closely with the Iranian Red Crescent Society and the Iranian authorities to assess the emergency response. The Red Crescent has already sent supplies of tents, blankets and food, and temporary accommodation is being provided for those in need in Zarand. The Iranian authorities have made no official request for assistance from international organizations.The agency’s team – comprising an emergency coordinator, a child protection officer, a water and sanitation officer and a health officer – made their way to the stricken area from Bam, scene of an earthquake 14 months ago which killed more than 30,000 people.According to reports, more than 30,000 people are affected and at least three villages have been more than 90 per cent destroyed. read more

Notley promising some spending in Alberta budget despite revenue squeeze

by Bill Graveland, The Canadian Press Posted Sep 24, 2015 1:45 pm MDT Last Updated Sep 24, 2015 at 4:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Notley promising some spending in Alberta budget despite revenue squeeze CALGARY – Premier Rachel Notley says the Alberta government will maintain public-sector services and not lay off workers despite a drop in revenue triggered by plunging resource revenues.Notley gave some hints about the NDP’s first provincial budget next month in a speech Thursday at the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association convention.“We’re going to stabilize public services and correct some mistakes the previous government made in managing finances like a $1.1- billion cut to health care and deep cuts to our schools and post-secondary institutions,” she told delegates.A budget was introduced, but never passed, by former premier Jim Prentice’s Progressive Conservative before it was defeated by Notley and the NDP in May.Finance Minister Joe Ceci has been touring the province to gather input for his budget. He has warned that challenges lie ahead as it will be the first full fiscal year with oil at drastically reduced prices.Ceci has already said that Alberta is on track for a record $5.9-billion deficit this year as the oil crunch hits families and businesses.“It makes no sense to respond to layoffs and job losses in the economy by making things worse by more layoffs and more job losses,” Notley said.“I would suggest this is a basic disagreement with both of the province’s conservative parties. They continue to make their case, which is about immediately laying off thousands of public servants, including teachers and nurses.”The current economic situation actually means the time is right for a “significant reinvestment in infrastructure, the premier said.“We are looking carefully for useful, well-thought-out, shovel-ready initiatives that make sense to greenlight this fall in the light of economic circumstances. Then there will be an additional sum we will be investing in our province’s infrastructure over the course of a five-year capital plan.”Notley wouldn’t discuss whether there will be any tax increases in the Oct. 26 budget, but did say she believes Albertans are willing to pay for health care and education.She couldn’t commit to balancing the Alberta budget by 2018 as promised during the provincial election campaign.“I would like to take my platform … and drop it down and say this is what we’re going to do in the next four years. But things change, circumstances change, and we’re grappling with that right now.”Follow @BillGraveland on Twitter read more

CAR UN envoy urges Security Council to bolster security consider sanctions against

Margaret Vogt, Special Representative for the Secretary-General presented the UN chief’s latest report to the Council, in which he describes the situation in CAR as “horrifying and intolerable.” The report also urges the international community to “send a strong message to Séléka leaders that there is no impunity for murder, looting, and unconstitutional changes of Government.” Members of the rebel group are also accused of rape, maiming, recruitment of children and forced marriages constitute serious violation of international human rights and humanitarian law.Ms. Vogt, which is also head of the Integrated Peacebuilding Office in the Central African Republic (BINUCA), said it was critical that the Council “unequivocally” pronounces itself on the need for these abuses to be stopped now and for perpetrators to be individually held accountable. “We believe that the time is ripe for the Council to consider the imposition of individual sanctions against the architects and perpetrators of these gross violations,” Ms. Vogt said. “We do not want a desperate people to be left with no choice but to take the law into their own hands.”The High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay and Secretary-General Ban have also expressed their concerns about the deteriorating security situation in the country. In addition, Fatou Bensouda, the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) – an independent international body that is not part of the UN and tries those accused of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes – has issued a warning that the ICC is closely scrutinizing the crimes committed against civilians in the country. Fighting flared up in CAR in December 2012 when the Séléka rebel coalition launched a series of attacks. The fighters took control of major towns and were advancing on the capital, Bangui – home to 1.5 million out of the country’s population of 4.5 million, before agreeing to start peace talks under the auspices of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS).A peace agreement was reached on 11 January in Libreville, Gabon, resulting in a ceasefire agreement and creating a Government of national unity in which opposition figures were given key posts, but the rebels again seized Bangui in March forcing President François Bozizé to flee.In her briefing based on Mr. Ban’s report, Ms. Vogt called for additional forces in CAR to “contain the current state of anarchy” and which would force rebels to conform to the security framework signed in January as part of the Libreville Agreement. It includes stipulations that all security forces be cantoned/regrouped, disarmed, demobilized and screened for absorption into a reformed security force.In his report, Mr. Ban noted that ECCAS has agreed to raise the troop levels on the group from 700 to 2,000, and urged the international community to support the effort.Mr. Ban downplayed the possibility of a UN peacekeeping force being deployed to the country, noting that while preliminary discussions have been held with Government authorities, “there are many questions to be answered.”In addition to the insecurity, the humanitarian situation in CAR is reaching “horrific proportions,” Mr. Ban said, especially in the medical areas, access to food, basic needs and services and the high risk of famine, if the current situation persists.Since the Séléka’s December offensive, 1.2 million people have been cut off from essential services and human rights violations have been widespread. More than 200,000 people have been displaced and more than 49,000 people have fled the country due to the violence, Ms. Vogt said. She added that as Mr. Ban underlines, the State capacity and infrastructure in the CAR was already at a rudimentary state before the rebellion, while health services were at an emergency level similar to situation seen in countries that have been in conflict for a long time. “Now even these facilities have all but disappeared,” she noted. According to figures cited from the UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), more than 80,000 people – including 57,000 children under five years of age – are estimated to be at risk of severe food insecurity during the upcoming lean season from now to September. The numbers are likely to go up as food prices rise and as farming continues to be disrupted, Ms. Vogt noted, which could eventually lead to an acute food and nutritional insecurity.The annual humanitarian appeal for the CAR, totalling $129 million, is 29 per cent funded as of 10 May, Ms. Vogt said. At least $42 million additionally will be required to respond to the new needs triggered by the crisis. read more

At UN world leaders agree to scale up actions against poverty set

During a special event on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), countries adopted an outcome document which acknowledges the progress made since the eight global targets were set in 2000, while also committing to do more to tackle many remaining challenges and accelerate progress.Countries also agreed to hold a high-level summit in September 2015 to adopt a new set of goals that will balance the three elements of sustainable development: providing economic transformation and opportunity to lift people out of poverty, advancing social justice and protecting the environment. The President of the General Assembly, John Ashe, who convened the event, stressed that fulfilling existing commitments must be a priority for Member States, as the new development agenda will build on the MDGs. “As we prepare to begin work on the post-2015 development agenda, the international community is embarking on a process with the potential for global transformation. We are working towards a framework that will address pressing global problems such as climate change and biodiversity loss, conflicts, population demographics, inequality and job insecurity,” he said. “This new agenda must not only tackle the unfinished business of the MDGs, it must go further – leading to a great overhaul in how we approach the planet and its people. On many levels, for many people, the new agenda’s composition will be a matter of survival.”At today’s event, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon presented to countries his report ‘A Life of Dignity for All,’ which outlines his vision for bold action to achieve the MDGs and for a new and responsive sustainable development framework that meets the needs of both people and planet.Mr. Ban said the post-2015 framework “must be bold in ambition yet simple in design, supported by a new partnership for development.” “It needs to be rights-based, with particular emphasis on women, young people and marginalized groups. And it must protect the planet’s resources, emphasize sustainable consumption and production and support action to address climate change,” he said.In addition to Mr. Ban’s report, governments, civil society and the private sector have all contributed recommendations for the future development agenda. More than one million people also voiced their concerns through the UN My World survey, and UN and partners engaged in almost 100 national and thematic consultations worldwide so citizens could contribute their ideas and perspectives to world leaders.On Monday, the high-level event, ‘MDG Success: Accelerating Action and Partnering for Impact,’ showcased further commitments from countries, the private sector and civil society organizations. The day-long meeting generated some $2.5 billion in pledged funds towards boosting MDG achievement.Today, the European Union and the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) announced they would step up efforts to reduce hunger in six countries before 2015 through agricultural development activities worth nearly €60 million.“So close to the deadline, when there is still so much to do, this good investment in agriculture will enable FAO to increase its efforts to eradicate hunger and do even more to help countries halve the proportion of hungry people by 2015,” said FAO’s Director-General, José Graziano da Silva.Some two million people will be reached through the joint initiative in Burundi, Burkina Faso, the Gambia, Haiti, Madagascar, and Mozambique.Agreed by world leaders at a UN summit in 2000, the MDGs set specific goals on poverty alleviation, education, gender equality, child and maternal health, environmental stability, HIV/AIDS reduction, and a global partnership for development.The targets that have already been met include halving the number of people living in extreme poverty and providing more than 2 billion people with access to improved sources of drinking water. Countries have also made great strides on health targets, and are within close reach of achieving them by 2015 deadline. These include reducing the mortality rates from malaria and tuberculosis and stopping HIV infections. read more

Neymar admits exaggerated reactions at World Cup in ad

Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Related’I couldn’t look at a football’ after the World Cup — NeymarJuly 21, 2018In “Sports”World Cup fever builds as fans, teams pour into RussiaJune 14, 2018In “Sports”World Cup: Brazil beat Mexico 2-0 to qualify for quarter-finalsJuly 2, 2018In “Sports” In this Friday, July 6, 2018 file photo Brazil’s Neymar holds his shinbone during the quarterfinal match between Brazil and Belgium at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Kazan Arena, in Kazan, Russia. (Photo: AP)SAO PAULO, Brazil (AP) — Neymar used a sponsor’s ad to admit he exaggerated some of his reactions after being fouled during the World Cup in Russia. The video, published Sunday and broadcast on several Brazilian TV networks, features the striker accepting criticism for the first time and promising to pick himself up.The striker scored two goals in the tournament and was not too disappointing until his team got knocked out by Belgium in the quarter-finals, but fans and players have spoken much more about his theatrics on the pitch, which included dives, rolling and frequent arguing with referees.“You may think I exaggerate. And sometimes I do exaggerate. But the truth is I suffer on the pitch,” Neymar said in the ad sponsored by personal care products maker Gillette.Since Brazil’s elimination, Neymar only spoke about the defeat in Russia via Instagram. In the ad he tried to explain why he did not speak right after the Belgium game, which fostered even more criticism of his behaviour at home.“When I leave without giving interviews it is not because I only want the victory laurels. It is because I still haven’t learned to disappoint you. When I look impolite, it is not because I am a spoiled kid. It is because I have not learned how to be frustrated,” the player said.Neymar said his football style is akin to a boy’s that “sometime charms the world, sometimes irritates the whole world.””I fight to keep that boy alive inside of me, but not on the pitch,” he said.“You may think I fall too much,” Neymar continued. “But the truth is I did not fall. I fell apart,” he said, in a reference to Brazil’s quarter-finals elimination against Belgium. “That hurts more than any step on an operated ankle.”The piece ends with Neymar’s pledge to be a new man less than a month after Brazil was knocked out of the World Cup.“I took long to accept your criticism. I took long to look at myself in the mirror and become a new man,” Neymar said. “I fell, but only who falls can pick himself up.”Neymar ends his ad asking fans to make a choice.“You can keep casting stones. Or throw these stones away and help me stand. When I stand, all of Brazil stands with me,” he said.On July 20, at his first public appearance after the World Cup, Neymar did not talk about his exaggerations. Instead, he said he wasn’t upset with critics that made fun of his theatrics in Russia. read more

Nurses will never agree to Sunday premium cuts

first_imgAS UNIONS RETURN to negotiations on the Croke Park Agreement, the union representing nurses has said it will not accept proposals to cut Sunday premiums, which were tabled yesterday.Phil Ní sheaghdha, Director of Industrial Relations at the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation told TheJournal.ie that the proposal was not a surprise.“Employers always have had an iron table from day one,” she said. “We keep repeating; we will never agree.

Mozilla IE9 is simply not a truly modern browser

first_imgThat Mozilla would feel a certain degree of animosity towards Internet Explorer is to be expected. Firefox, after all, has long been the superior browser, yet it has spent years trying to chip away at IE’s market share.We’re still surprised how deep the bad blood runs, though, after Mozilla’s tech evangelist Paul Rouget said that Microsoft’s recently released Internet Explorer 9 is simply not a “truly modern browser” because of the way it implements HTML5.According to Rouget, the issue with IE9 is that it implements HTML5 with the same tell-tale sloppiness Microsoft used in previous versions of IE. He notes, specifically, that IE9 doesn’t actually support up to 99%of the HTML5 spec… and, overall, only supports 61% of all of the web’s current standards.It’s worth noting that Firefox doesn’t 100% comply with web standards itself, but no browser does. Firefox still beats the pants off of IE9, though, by managing an 87% rate of standard support.Even more damning, Rouget goes on to claim that IE9 is behind-the-times and two years too late, specifically when it comes to the use of the video and canvas tag, as well as SVG support.That’s undeniably true, but it’s important to remember that IE9 has an extra burden on it that Firefox does not: it needs to be backwards compatible with past versions of Internet Explorer when it comes to corporate intranets. That’s Microsoft’s fault, sure, but it ironically means that Microsoft needs to move slower when it updates their browser just because of their overwhelming share of the browser market.Even so, we hate to say it, but Rouget has a point. How much of one, though, is debatable: for almost everyone, IE9 is a step up over IE8 in almost every conceivable way.Read more at Mozillalast_img read more

Off Beat Her husband mapped out their road to wedded bliss

first_imgHandmade valentines tend to be the most … well, heartfelt.That’s why Phil Arnold’s hand-drawn love note to his wife Helen was so touching.They’re both gone now. Phil, a longtime mapmaker, died two years ago. Vancouver has a public remembrance for him with Phil Arnold Way, a street just south of City Hall.When Helen died on Dec. 6, we wrote that she didn’t get that kind of recognition.Well, actually, she sort of did.Her husband did it.As we have noted over the years, Phil was fond of sneaking little family references into his local maps. In part, it was a way to detect copyright infringement if somebody copied his work.One of those whimsical byways actually was a tribute to Helen. When he drew his county atlas, Phil penned Northwest Helena Road onto the map of the Salmon Creek area.There’s actually no such roadway in Salmon Creek.But there is more to the mapmaker’s inside joke. It’s not just the riff on Helen’s name: It’s the location of the road that makes it an enduring valentine for his wife, whose memorial service was on Feb. 1.Helena Road is adjacent to one of the Salmon Creek area’s main routes: Bliss Road.“I always loved the placement on that one,” said their daughter, Janice Arnold.” ‘By Bliss Road’ was his quiet commentary for life with Helen,” she said.Janice Arnold is an acclaimed textile artist, by the way. Her favorite material is felt.She used red felt to create some mementos for her mother’s memorial service that also seem quite appropriate for Feb. 14.Heart. Felt.
