UN agency distributes blankets to victims of xenophobic violence in South Africa

22 May 2008The United Nations refugee agency has distributed blankets and mats to the victims of a wave of violent xenophobic attacks in South Africa’s Gauteng province since last weekend that have killed dozens of people and forced an estimated 13,000 people to flee their homes. The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said it has handed out about 2,000 blankets and 2,000 mats in several police stations across Gauteng, which is centred on Johannesburg, the country’s most populous city.Many of the displaced – who include refugees, asylum-seekers and other migrants – have sought protection from the angry mobs at police stations, but are sleeping in the open nearby, according to a statement issued by UNHCR yesterday.The South African Government has opened “joint operation centres” at police stations and community centres to house some of the displaced and to coordinate aid delivery from humanitarian agencies to the victims.UNHCR staff who have visited some of the centres say many lack sufficient toilets and washing facilities to house the sudden arrivals. In one community hall in the town of Germiston, about 2,800 people have crowded in to find shelter.One of the arrivals, Filizarda Mbanza, told UNHCR staff that she fled her shack on the outskirts of Germiston at the weekend after a neighbour told her that a crowd was approaching.“I was terrified!” she said. “My husband was at work and I was alone with the baby. What was I to take from our shack? The warnings were drawing closer and I was in a panic. I had to get out [of] there before my baby and I were attacked.”Ms. Mbanza, who has a three-month-old baby, said she does not know if her husband is still alive.Doudou Diène, the UN Special Rapporteur on contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, told UN Radio that this week’s events indicate just how widespread xenophobia is in today’s world.He said he was especially saddened by the fact that these events are taking place in South Africa.“Sadness, because this happened in a country where the majority of the population has been marginalized, institutionally discriminated with violence for years, and a country which has liberated itself by fighting that institutional racism.” read more

Amid rising tensions between India and Pakistan UNs Ban urges calm dialogue

“The Secretary-General is concerned about the recent escalation of violence along the Line of Control between India and Pakistan,” a UN spokesperson told reporters today at Headquarters in New York. “He deplores the loss of lives and the displacement of civilians on both sides.”The hostilities between India and Pakistan began over a week ago and have steadily intensified with media reporting an estimated 20 casualties and thousands displaced by the fighting. In his statement, Mr. Ban encouraged the Governments of India and Pakistan to resolve all differences through dialogue and “to engage constructively to find a long-term solution for peace and stability in Kashmir.”The UN has long maintained an institutional presence in the contested area between the two countries. According to the Security Council mandate given in resolution 307 of 1971, the UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) observes and reports on ceasefire violations along and across the Line of Control and the working boundary between the South Asian neighbours in Jammu and Kashmir, as well as reports developments that could lead to ceasefire violations.UNMOGIP currently comprises 40 military observers and a number of civilian staff members. read more

In Republic of Korea Ban urges Asian nations to settle border disputes

“This powerful continent is critical for prosperity and security around the world,” Mr. Ban told the Forum for Peace and Prosperity held in Jeju, Republic of Korea.Noting at the same time that Asia accounts for nearly a third of all global greenhouse gas emissions, he stressed the importance of concerted action. Citing solar power and other innovative green technologies, he said “Asia is also a source of solutions.”Mr. Ban went on to urge all Asian countries to quickly ratify the Paris Agreement on climate change, as only 16 of the 177 signatories have ratified it.Asia’s robust economic growth helped the world cut poverty by half – and achieve the first Millennium Development Goal (MDG). But two out of every three of the world’s poorest people live in Asia – a total of 450 million individuals. The continent faces major threats related to freshwater, land and pollution, he warned.“That is why Asia must embrace the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,” he said.There are many hopeful things. Four of our five top contributors to UN peacekeeping operations are in Asia. The Asia-Pacific region continues to be a centre of economic dynamism and influence. It is also home to political progress and greater democratization.But there are challenges. A number of Asian countries claim the same territory and maritime areas, he said, calling on all parties to resolve their disputes peacefully. “It is time to agree on borders that are now disputed,” he said.And Asian countries must rise above conflicting interpretations of history. By squarely and humbly addressing the unfortunate past historical issues, they can focus on the future, he stressed, adding that other continents, such as Latin America, Africa and Europe, have done that work through successful agreements and organizations.Mr. Ban also spotlighted the importance of nurturing youth into global citizens because “national geographic borders do not mean much these days.”Turning to the situation on the Korean Peninsula, he noted that the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s pursuit of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles only undermines its own security and hurts its citizens. Military spending remains high while children are wasting. Human rights are systematically abused. The country’s authorities must correct these wrongs, Mr. Ban stressed.While welcoming progress made in the protection and promotion of human rights in Asia, he also expressed concern about shrinking space for civil society organizations, as well as rising intolerance, hate speech and violence in parts of Asia.Many Asian countries showed compassion by hosting migrants, he said, calling on these nations to “give new arrivals the chance to make a difference.”Mr. Ban will travel to Ise-Shima, Japan, tomorrow, 27 May, to participate in the Outreach Session of the G-7 Summit. The Secretary-General will return to the Republic of Korea for the opening session, on Monday, 30 May, of the UN DPI/NGO Conference in the south-eastern city of Gyeongju. read more

Transformers KreO construction kits arrive in stores

first_imgIn February of 2011, Hasbro announced a new addition to its line of toys. Called Kre-O, the building sets followed in the proud tradition of Lego and MegaBlocks, offering click-together assembly of all kinds of cool things. And since it’s Hasbro taking a stab at brick building toys this time, it was no surprise to learn that the company would be tapping an existing licensing deal for its initial round of Kre-O sets: Transformers.If the thought of combining Lego-like building and Transformers has you all giddy, you’re not alone. I remember back in the early 80s thinking how amazing it would be if someone would hybridize two of my favorite youthful addictions — and I think it’s even more amazing now that someone has actually done it.The sets feature all your Transformer pals, from Optimus Prime and Megatron to Bumblebee and Starscream. And, as you can see from the photo, you’re not just snapping together a robot-only version: your finished creations are fully transformable, in a very manual sort of way. You’ll have to tear them down and rebuild in vehicle mode from scratch. Or you could always buy two sets so that you have one of each to display 24-7, but I’m sure that prospect never entered the minds of the marketing team at Hasbro. Nope. Never.So, how much are these bad boys going to set you back? Transformers Kre-O sets range in price from $7.99 (for the classic animated version of Bumblebee) to $59.99 (for Optimus Prime and Sentinel Prime).What do you think, Geek faithful? Will you be making room in your collectibles budget for these, or have you got your eyes on something else?More at Hasbro and Slashgearlast_img read more

PASOK aims for March 18 leadership vote

first_imgPASOK is due to hold elections for a new leader on March 18 and officials close to current party chief George Papandreou insist that he has no intention in taking part in the contest. The Socialist party’s political council met on Wednesday to discuss the process for electing a new leader after Papandreou gave the green light for the vote. In keeping with PASOK’s charter, it was decided that a congress would be held between March 2 and 4. The national council is due to meet a week later in order to finalize the list of candidates and the vote is seen taking place a week later on Sunday, March 18. The rubber-stamping of this process means that it will not be possible for more than two or three candidates to stand in the elections as they will need the support of at least 105 members of the 400-member political council. PASOK spokesman Panos Beglitis, a close associate of Papandreou, insisted that despite speculation, the ex-premier intends to keep his word and stay out of the contest. “Mr Papandreou told the political council very clearly that he will not be a candidate for party president or prime minister,” said Beglitis. However, doubts persist within the party as to whether PASOK will be able to keep to this timetable given that it will depend on whether the interim government has completed its negotiations with the European Union and International Monetary Fund on Greece’s next bailout and when parliamentary elections will be held. “I do not see how we will have an election process in PASOK in March since we will go straight to elections after agreeing the new loan,” said Agriculture Minister Costas Skandalidis. Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos is thought to favour a less complicated election process, which would involve the members of PASOK’s parliamentary group voting for the party’s new leader. This would give the party greater flexibility, those in the Venizelos camp argue. Wednesday’s political council also led to the creation of two committees. One will assess the party’s record during its two years in power and the other will form a policy program for the next elections. The committees are due to conclude their work within ten days.

Johnstone rues Aberdeen missed chance believes Rangers must bounce back

first_imgFormer Rangers player Derek Johnstone believes Aberdeen home defeat is a momentary setback for the team and that they will get past it to remain in title contention.Derek told Evening Times:“They had one chance and scored. How people can say they were the better team, I don’t know.”“Defensively, yes. They got everyone back behind the ball and defended well, but Joe Lewis has made three or four great saves.”“I thought Rangers were poor, there was nobody that got pass marks, Allan McGregor aside because he had no chance with the goal and little to do after that.”“You can’t go through the game performing like that and expect to beat Aberdeen. If you don’t have the majority of players getting pass marks, you won’t win the game.”Rangers is still behind Celtic: John Hartson Manuel R. Medina – September 3, 2019 According to the former Celtic player, there’s still a massive gap between his ex-club and Rangers in the Scottish Premier League.“A lot of the fans got excited after the win over Hearts and then they feel like they are back down with a bump following the Aberdeen game.”“You have got to remember where Rangers were starting from and everyone knows that we have still got a bit to do.”“If you want to win leagues, you need to be consistent. You might not be at your best every week, but you don’t let your performances drop below a level and you win game after game after game.”“As it turned out, Rangers had a chance to go clear on Wednesday night and it was a real opportunity missed, unfortunately.”“Rangers are going to have their ups and downs over the season and there is no doubt that was a major down for everyone against Aberdeen.”“The important thing now is how the players react and the manager will leave them in no doubt about what is required when they head to Dundee this weekend.”last_img read more

Most Famous Bahamas street to become flood free

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, September 28, 2017 – Nassau – There is a plan for flooding on the country’s most famous street to be no more; #BayStreet on September 12 was drowning and so was easy commuting, business as usual and the beauty of the waterfront strip, which lines the northern coast of Nassau.    During House of Assembly on Monday, Minister of Public Works Desmond Bannister announced that there are several initiatives underway to mitigate flooding and they include water jetting the laterals, to clear them from leaves and other debris.There will also be new laterals installed and changes are likely for pipe systems by the various utility companies.    Minister Bannister said there was flooding on West Bay Street near the Pointe development, a continuous problem explained the Minister because of curry being placed over a manhole at the site.Nearly $40,000 has been spent to clear laterals in the area.   Another problem is restriction of the water flow, which leads to a backup in the system in the area of Dowdeswell Street and Victoria Avenue.  Compounding the problem on that day, storm surge and intense, excessive rainfall, reported Minister Bannister on Monday.#MagneticMediaNews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#BayStreet, #magneticmedianewslast_img read more

Tesla released some DIY maintenance procedures for Model 3

first_img 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Enlarge ImageIf you’ve ever needed to restart your Model 3’s center screen or calibrate your windows but didn’t know how; Tesla made some guides to show you. Steven Ewing/Roadshow Tesla published a blog post on Monday titled Do It Yourself that outlines some basic procedures that Model 3 owners can undertake on their own vehicles to avoid having to bring them to a service center or call mobile service.Now, that sounds pretty awesome on the surface. After all, Tesla has been notoriously picky about who works on its vehicles, right? Maybe Elon finally got all into Minor Threat and Black Flag and decided to embrace DIY culture fully? Not really, but that’s OK.The Tesla Model 3 DIY list is predominantly stuff that would be found in any owner’s manual in any ordinary car. The procedures it outlines range in complexity from the basic “Pairing a Bluetooth phone” and “Connecting an iPhone charging cable” to useful stuff like “Calibrating windows” and “Replacing wiper blades.”A lot of Tesla owners will probably find these explainers helpful, and to Tesla’s credit, the instructions are clear and packed with pictures and GIFs. Some of the procedures seem like common sense, but others — like how to reset the center screen or how to manually disengage the charging cable — are more specific and could be a huge pain to deal with if you didn’t have the info handy.We hope that Tesla will start offering more of these kinds of guides for its other models. What procedures would you like to see Tesla explain in this way? Let us know in the comments.Tesla didn’t immediately respond to Roadshow’s request for comment. 2019 Mercedes-Benz G550 review: An anachronistic SUV with modern luxury and tech Tags More From Roadshow 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous Tesla Share your voicecenter_img 5 Electric Cars Car Culture Comments 49 Photos Tesla’s Model 3 Performance subtly adds the power Teslalast_img read more

Heres why India is developing its first deepsea port in Indonesia

first_imgINS Teg, a Talwar class stealth frigate, of the Indian Navy  GETTY IMAGESNot far off the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India has been developing its first deep-sea port in Indonesia’s Sabang. The move is seen as to counter Chinese strategy through its Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). The deep-sea port will be critical to India’s Indo-Pacific strategy and will allow India to have greater access to the South East Asian markets. Moreover, it will also provide a strategic position in the region at a time when China is aggressively consolidating its presence in the Strait of Malacca and Indian Ocean Region (IOR) at large.The IOR has become a major trade route where the Indian Navy is increasingly seen as a net security provider. India’s security strategy plans to provide a maritime environment that is free from all forms of traditional and non-traditional threats to our national development. Notably, China is encircling India under its “strings of pearls” strategy.India’s Look East Policy, which started in the early 1990s, has largely been trade-oriented. But in recent years, the aggressive rise of China in this region has forced India to devise a new strategy. The Narendra Modi-led government has upgraded this policy to “Act East” and the recent steps in the region can be seen as to protect its interest. A cargo vessel awaits entry into the container terminal of Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) in Mumbai, India, July 15, 2015.Reuters fileBut countering a nation of such economic might is not going be easier for India. China has substantially increased its trade with ASEAN nations over the years and has become its largest trade partner. In 2008, the total trade between China and ASEAN was $192 billion and in the next 10 years, it jumped to a whopping $515 billion. Additionally, China has spent about $400 billion through its ambitious Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).China’s ultimate aim in the region is to displace the US from the region. The US has its presence in the IOR through its military bases in Guam, Diego Garcia (Indian Ocean), as well as in Darwin, Australia. Further, its economic engagements with countries in this region ensure its primacy. But considering China’s “not so cordial” relationship with India, its ambitions threaten India as well.Last year, during his visit to Indonesia, PM Modi had agreed on a “shared vision of maritime co-operation in the Indo-Pacific” where connectivity with Sabang port was identified as a key area.last_img read more

Hackers who took PSN offline issued bomb threat for SOE presidents flight

first_imgYesterday gamers booting up their PS3 or PS4 were frustrated to find that the PlayStation Network was down for maintenance. But this wasn’t scheduled downtime, it was the work of hackers targeting Sony’s service.Sony has since confirmed that PSN was taken offline by a denial-of-service attack, which overwhelmed the network with artificially high levels of traffic. They also confirmed no data had been accessed, the hackers, known as the Lizard Squad, simply disrupted normal service. However, that’s not all they did yesterday.While the PSN DoS attack was underway, the same group of hackers also discovered Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley was flying from Dallas to San Diego with American Airlines. They then proceeded to issue a bomb threat warning for the flight and tweeted the following message to American Airlines regarding explosives:That resulted in Flight 362 being diverted to Phoenix, causing a major inconvenience for the 179 passengers on board including Smedley. Understandably an FBI investigation is under way. They take all bomb threats seriously, and fake threats just as seriously. An image has also appeared for an e-ticket for the flight, raising the question as to how they knew Smedley was on Flight 362 and who actually purchased this particular ticket.Taking down PSN is serious enough and will kick off an investigation by authorities, but adding bomb threats and forcing a flight to be diverted into the mix will certainly make this a high priority for the FBI. The hackers are clearly either naive or very confident about the wall of anonymity they are sitting behind.last_img read more

Go back to the enewsletter A multimilliondollar

first_imgGo back to the enewsletterA multi-million-dollar refurbishment of the Vibe Savoy Hotel Melbourne will be revealed in October, with the property on the corner of Spencer and Little Collins Street set to be transformed into The Savoy Hotel on Little Collins, Melbourne.Positioned under the TFE Hotels Collection brand – a portfolio of beautiful discovery hotels with a sense of story, place and purpose – the stunning design by Woods Bagot will rejuvenate the dwelling into a sophisticated address in the heart of cosmopolitan Melbourne, with the city’s best boutiques, cool laneways and bars on its doorstep. The design has a modern and inviting appeal that pays tribute to the Art Deco era of the original Hotel Alexander built on the site in 1928.The Savoy Hotel on Little Collins has 163 guest rooms with plush furnishings in a classic palette of dove grey, blue, white and charcoal, with full-length mirrors and custom carpet featuring period motifs. Each bathroom has white subway tiles and chequerboard black-and-white tiled floors, contrasting with chrome tapware that reflect the heritage elements of the building.The level-two restaurant will have new-look interiors, featuring a spectacular 10-storey atrium which fills the space with natural light and is complemented by magnificent chandeliers. The original ballroom is ideal for sophisticated weddings.TFE Hotels Chairman Allan Vidor said the refurbishment, combined with the hotel’s prime location, would position it as the most desirable stay in the heart of Melbourne.“This hotel has such a wonderful story, in its history, and in its place in the Melbourne psyche – which makes it a perfect fit for the TFE Hotels Collection brand,” he said. “This is the most exciting unveil of the year. The magnificent hotel will reclaim its position as a grand hotel of Melbourne, as it was when it opened in 1928.”Woods Bagot senior associate Sarah Alessi said, “The contemporary aesthetic of this design enhances the heritage of the building, while retaining a truth and authenticity relevant to its history. Drawing on elements of the Art Deco period, the space is bold and confident and the design detailing references that of the era.”Vibe Savoy Hotel Melbourne will remerge as The Savoy Hotel on Little Collins, MelbourneThe site first operated as a hotel in 1866, a three-storey brick structure known as Alexander’s Family Hotel. In 1926, new owner James Richardson started construction of the first 20th-century American-style hotel in Victoria, advertising it as the first in Australia to have ensuite bathrooms and a controlled-temperature interior environment. On 31 January 1928, Premier Hogan officially opened the 200-room Hotel Alexander.After Richardson’s death in 1951, the Federal Hotel group bought the hotel for £450,000 and renamed it the Savoy-Plaza. The Victorian Government bought the hotel in 1974 and turned it into the Police Cadet Training Academy. In 1987 the Nauruan-owned company Spencer Investments bought it and spent $46 million restoring the Savoy Park Plaza Hotel to its former glory, reopening it in May 1991. In 2004, TOGA Hospitality opened it as Vibe Savoy Hotel Melbourne. It continues to be operated by TFE Hotels.Go back to the enewsletterlast_img read more
