Sri Lanka again blocks social media amid communal unrest

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka — Sri Lanka’s government says it is temporarily blocking social media and messaging apps to prevent the spread of “misinformation,” the third time it has taken such a step since Easter attacks killed more than 250 people.The Information Department says the government acted after an exchange of accusations between two people on Facebook led a mob to attack a Muslim-owned shop on Sunday.Police imposed a curfew on the Catholic-majority town where the mob attack took place, but lifted it Monday morning.Previous blocks on social media and messaging apps were lifted after several days.A group of Sri Lankan Muslims with links to the Islamic State group carried out the April 21 suicide attacks on churches and hotels.There has since been increased communal tension in the Buddhist-majority nation.Bm, The Associated Press read more

Funding shortfall threatens UN aid in Sudans strifetorn Darfur region

25 September 2007A shortfall of over $7 million is imperilling United Nations efforts to aid some of the more than 2 million internally displaced people (IDPs) and thousands of Chadian refugees in Sudan’s strife-torn Darfur region. “We fear we may be compelled to scale down our existing operations in West Darfur if we do not receive additional funding very soon,” UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) spokesperson Jennifer Pagonis told a news briefing in Geneva today. The UNHCR operation in Darfur is facing a shortfall of $7.1 million out of a required 2007 budget $19.7 million. “We are seriously concerned that the lack of funding will soon have a direct impact on our operation,” Ms. Pagonis said, noting that the number of Chadian refugees continues to rise. “We are already facing difficulties in paying staff salaries for next month,” she added. UNHCR has been present in Darfur since June 2004 both in West Darfur and South Darfur, focusing mainly on protection and humanitarian aid for IDPs, including the promotion of access to legal redress, providing relief items to vulnerable people, strengthening basic services, including wells, schools and health centres, and efforts to avoid further displacement through small-scale rehabilitation projects. “Our regular monitoring in areas of displacement also contributes to establishing a safer environment. All of these activities could be curtailed if our funding situation does not improve,” Ms. Pagonis said. “Meanwhile, we remain extremely concerned that there is still no major improvement in the security situation,” she added, citing new displacement due to renewed in the region where more than 200,000 people have been killed and over 2 million others forced to flee their homes in four years of fighting between Sudanese Government forces, allied Janjaweed militias and rebel groups. Most of the camps in the El Geneina and Zalingei areas of West Darfur have reached maximum capacity. With continuing arrivals, there will soon be a need to create new sites. An estimated 250,000 people have been newly displaced this year due to the ongoing violence. UNHCR is also responsible for 30,000 Chadian and Central African refugees in West Darfur. The number of refugees has steadily increased during the year, a trend that is likely to continue if the security situation fails to improve in those two countries. Because of the volatile security situation, many aid workers must travel by helicopter to reach IDPs as roads are too unsafe. When travelling by road, staff must be escorted by African Union forces. So far this year, 77 aid workers have been abducted and nearly 70 humanitarian vehicles hijacked. “Despite all these constraints, assistance to the displaced remains fundamental for UNHCR and humanitarian agencies,” Ms. Pagonis said. “We appeal to donors to quickly provide contributions so we can continue our work.” read more

DPR Korea 40 per cent of population in danger of going hungry

A joint assessment by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Food Programme (WFP) found that agricultural production will fall short of what is needed this year because of critical shortages of fertilizer and fuel, in spite of favourable climate conditions during the past growing season. “DPRK will face a severe food situation over the coming months,” said Henri Josserand, Chief of FAO”s Global Information and Early Warning System, notwithstanding the hard work by both farmers and city dwellers. “The prospects for next year are bleak, with a substantial deficit of basic foods that will only partly be covered by commercial imports and anticipated food aid,” he added. Even with commercial imports, DPRK will face a cereal deficit of over 800,000 tons, the FAO/WFP Crop and Food Security Assessment Mission, the first such comprehensive mission conducted since 2004. “With such a large food gap, accessing enough food and a balanced diet will be almost impossible, particularly for families living in urban areas or in the remote food-deficit provinces in the Northeast,” Torben Due, WFP’s Representative in DPRK said in the capital, Pyongyang. He warned that this could have serious consequences for the health of the most vulnerable people in the Asian nation. Only 142 kilograms of the 167 kilograms needed for a healthy diet will be available per person from the domestic production, the new report found. Food rations handed out by the Public Distribution System (PDS) – the main food source for some 70 per cent of the population – are expected to be slashed dramatically, with most families in the DPRK already cutting back on the number of meals per day. The low productivity of the farming sector is propelled by a long-term drop in soil fertility, lack of inputs, extreme weather and structural issues such as constraints on market activities. Although seeds were available this year, there was a 40 per cent decline in fertilizer supplies and a 30 per cent drop in fuel supplies. “The current agricultural production model and farming techniques are not sustainable,” FAO’s Mr. Josserand noted. “The country has been taking up conservation agriculture, improved seed multiplication and other efficient practices, but turning the whole sector around will take quite some time.” 8 December 2008An estimated 40 per cent of the population of the Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea (DPRK) – almost 9 million people – will be in need of urgent food aid in the next few months due to a shortage in cereals, according to a new United Nations report. read more

UNESCO sees time for social action at Cambodian archaeological site of Angkor

The results of the campaign to save the vast archaeological complex of temples, thanks to the efforts of the international community which has invested more than $50 million, the commitment of Cambodia’s authorities and coordination led by the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), speak for themselves, UNESCO said in a report today on the conference, held in Paris.The 100 or so restoration and development projects carried out over the past 10 years include the clearing of more than 25,000 anti-personnel mines – some 3,000 of which were found in archaeological sites – and the destruction of 80,000 explosive devices left behind by the civil war; the establishment of a special heritage protection police force; a detailed inventory of cultural goods; and awareness raising campaigns against the sale of stolen objects, have stopped cultural pillaging in the protected area.”What has been learned in this decade, and is still being learned, could serve as a model for the rehabilitation of other ancient sites in post conflict situations – such as Bamiyan in Afghanistan or the Mesopotamian legacy in Iraq – that have suffered from neglect, wanton destruction, and the devastation of war,” UNESCO Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura told the meeting, the Second Intergovernmental Conference for the Safeguarding and Sustainable Development of Angkor.Angkor, Cambodia’s main attraction and capital of the Khmer Empire between the 9th and 15th centuries, is a vast archaeological park spread over 401 square kilometres, with an exceptional concentration of monuments of religious, historical, artistic and human value. Apart from the world-renowned temples of Angkor Wat, there are about 40 other edifices representing different periods and styles. All are part of an exceptional natural environment, characterized by rivers, forests and rice paddies.Angkor is also a community made up of tens of thousands of people who are the keepers of popular traditions, with a rich oral heritage, and some of the new projects that the conference supported reflect this, including infrastructure work to install a water supply system for the area’s residential population, improvements in sanitation and the rehabilitation of the bridge close to the Takeo Temple on the Siem Reap River.One of the challenges is the management of the huge number of tourists. More than 300,000 visitors came in 2003 and their number is growing at an annual rate of 30 per cent. The Paris Declaration adopted at the end of the conference recognizes “the need to develop sustainable ethical tourism in the Siem Reap/Angkor region as a tool in the fight against poverty.”The Angkor Programme’s international projects, both past and future, include training to allow Cambodia to build up a body of personnel trained in cultural heritage management and conservation, as all personnel trained in these areas were either killed or fled the country during the time of the Khmer Rouge in the 1970s. Projects are thus helping create a generation of competent architects and archaeologists who will gradually take charge of international actions. read more

Mourinho thrives while fighting people

first_imgSwansea City manager Carlos Carvalhal believes that Jose Mourinho thrives in a fight against other people and believes that he shares similarities with his counterpartCarvalhal’s side are set to travel to Old Trafford for their Premier League encounter against Manchester United next Saturday with the Welsh side looking to maintain their status in top division for next season.Mourinho has recently found himself at the receiving end of criticism for his style of management, but Carvalhal has defended his compatriot and insisted that the former Real Madrid and Inter Milan coach simply has a more confrontational approach to his style of management.“I like Mourinho and he knows that I like him. I studied him. I spent a week at Manchester United when Alex Ferguson was there, then a week watching Mourinho at Chelsea. I also went to Real Madrid.” said Carvalhal, according to Sky Sports.“I tried to learn with the best. He has a big self-confidence, like I do. You need that. But he is a completely different personality to me. He likes confrontation. He likes to fight with people. And he’s very good when he is fighting.harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“I am completely different.

Bikers revved up about law that prevents police profiling

first_imgBikers will have something to celebrate at today’s Motorcycle Mountain Jam in Clark County: Gov. Chris Gregoire has signed into law a bill that outlaws profiling of motorcyclists by state troopers and local law enforcement officers. Engrossed Senate Bill 5242, which prohibits singling out bikers for police stops without a legitimate reason, passed both legislative chambers unanimously and was signed by the governor Wednesday. A similar bill in the 2010 Legislature passed the House decisively but ran out of time in the state Senate.The new law is modeled on a 2002 state law outlawing racial profiling by police, and it includes similar safeguards. It requires the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs and the Criminal Justice Training Commission to add a statement condemning motorcycle profiling to their existing policies banning racial profiling.Motorcycle profiling is defined as when law enforcement officers single out people who ride motorcycles or wear biker garb, stopping, questioning, searching or arresting them without legal grounds. Motorcycle enthusiasts presented compelling evidence to legislators, including a video of a state trooper crawling through bushes near the Legislative Building in Olympia two years ago and writing down motorcycle license numbers while bikers were holding a rally.last_img read more

SELECTMEN NEWS New Finance Director Town Accountant Appointed

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — At a meeting last week, the Wilmington Board of Selectmen appointed Bryan Perry, the current City Auditor for Lowell, as the town’s next Finance Director/Town Accountant, by a 4-1 vote.Perry beat out fellow finalist Jennifer Finnegan, the current Town Treasurer/Collector for Tyngsboro. Both were publicly interviewed by Selectmen on May 15.“I think both candidates did an outstanding job and have great resumes,” said Selectman Mike McCoy. “I was impressed by both, but was more impressed by Brian Perry,” said Selectman Kevin Caira. “He has Munis experience and was part of a conversation. He’s also familiar with the Board of Assessors. He’s an auditor. I think either candidate is good. We win with either one of them. For my flavor, I’m partial to Brian Perry.”“Mr. Perry has well-thought out answers to questions he couldn’t have been prepared for in a setting that was not your typical job interview,” added Selectwoman Jomarie O’Mahony. “What really differentiated the two is that Mr. Perry is currently managing a $300 million+ budget for the City of Lowell, which is three times our budget.”“I was partial to Mrs. Finnegan,” said Selectman Jonathan Eaton, who noted Finnegan has nearly 20 years more experience in municipal finance than Perry. “I felt the fraud she uncovered in her prior employment was very impressive. I do feel that she would fit in with the other finance offices here than Mr. Perry might… Experience matters a lot. I’m not going to go home disappointed if Mrs. Finnegan doesn’t get the position. I do think she’s my preference.”“I agree these were two highly qualified candidates. Very educated. Impressive resumes… They’re pretty equal when you look at them side by side. Both did well in the interviews,” said Selectmen Chair Greg Bendel. “I thought Mr. Perry had the edge when it came to interviewing. We can’t wrong with either one.”“Both could perform the job very well. They offer a different set of strengths. Mr. Perry’s municipal accounting experience and as a member of the Board of Assessors gives him a bit of an edge with respect of understanding the Board,” said Town Manager Jeff Hull, when asked for his opinion. “In terms of learning curves, Mr. Perry does not seem to be familiar with the municipal borrowing process, which is certainly something that can be learned… There will be an adjustment for Mr. Perry from going to a city-form government to a Town Meeting/Board of Selectmen… [Mrs. Finnegan] has been a Treasurer/Collector and Town Accountant, which perhaps gives her a greater breadth of experience as Mr. Perry, so there’s pluses and minuses on both sides…. In the end, whichever way the board goes, we’re in a good situation.”On a motion made by Selectman McCoy and a second on Selectwoman O’Mahony, Brian Perry received 4 votes. Selectman Eaton was the lone no vote.Hull told Selectmen he will discuss the terms and conditions for employment with Perry. Perry’s term will expire annually.Current Town Accountant Mike Morris is retiring on July 12.Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook. Follow Wilmington Apple on Twitter.

Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato has a 108piece grille that moves

first_img null Aston Martin DBS Superleggera has gorgeous looks and… Now playing: Watch this: Enlarge ImageLeave it to Aston Martin and Zagato to create a car with a grille that literally flows when the vehicle is started up. Aston Martin Aston Martin and design house Zagato have a six-decade-long relationship, combining forces to create some of the most stunning vehicles on the road. As part of Zagato’s 100th birthday, Aston Martin will offer up 19 examples of the new DBS GT Zagato, and the automaker is finally ready to show off its production-ready shape and offer up a bit more information about what to expect.Aston Martin on Tuesday unveiled a small handful of pictures that show the production form of the DBS GT Zagato alongside its old-school sibling, the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation. Starting with a DBS Superleggera, the body picks up some wild new styling, including a full carbon roof that eliminates the rear glass, as well as some stunning taillights, new flourishes on the sides and a curvaceous front end.To accommodate the roof, Aston Martin created a camera-based rearview mirror that still allows the driver to see behind the vehicle without any rear windshield. Consider it like those mass-market mirrors that let you swap between normal and camera-based viewing, only the former is impossible because there actually isn’t any rear glass at all. If you think that’s wild, take a look at the grille. It looks intricate, sure, but it’s even crazier than you might think. The grille comprises 108 pieces of diamond-shaped carbon fiber. When the car is off, the grille looks sealed up with a flush appearance, but upon starting the car, those pieces “flutter into life,” as Aston puts it, physically opening up to provide the car’s V12 engine with air. Good luck trying to get that repaired anywhere but the dealership.At a cost of roughly $8 million, the grille had damn well better mimic a living being. But then again, that price tag doesn’t just include one car. DBS GT Zagato buyers also receive a DB4 GT Zagato Continuation model, a handbuilt coupe finished in the same hue as the original DB4 GT Zagato cars that were built in the 1960s. All of a sudden, paying $8 million for two utterly stunning small-batch creations doesn’t sound so obscene.aston-dbs-gt-zagato-002Enlarge ImageThe rear end of the DBS GT Zagato is breathtaking, and not just because it lacks a rear windshield.

Property Values Perched on the Underserved

That decline fueled surges in property values in four counties.Adding weight to the findings, recent reports indicate a rise in the number of cash buyers and investors in the housing market. These buyers and investors front cash for undervalued and distressed properties, which continue to leach capital from banks that can neither finance their remodeling needs or sales.center_img Agents & Brokers Lenders & Servicers Processing 2011-07-01 Ryan Schuette July 1, 2011 516 Views last_img read more

Administration Write to Gina Martinez at ginamartinez@timeinccomMoscow:The foreign ministers of Russia Iran and Turkey were set to hold talks on Syria on Monday in the wake of an alleged chemical attack that has exposed differences between the three powers The three nations have been attempting to find a political solution to the Syrian conflict at talks that started in 2017 in Astana Kazakhstan in competition with the US and UN-backed Geneva initiative The latest talks in Moscow between two of Assad’s key supporters Moscow and Tehran and rebel-backer Ankara come as the alleged chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma on April 7 has prompted sharply differing responses from Turkey and Russia "I curse those who carried out this massacre" President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said adding that he welcomed Western air strikes in retaliation as "appropriate" Meanwhile Russia says the attack was staged to discredit its ally President Bashar-al Assad and this week brought a group of Syrians to the global chemical arms watchdog to back its claims French president Emmanuel Macron this month suggested the air strikes had driven a wedge between Ankara and Moscow as they have been building increasingly close ties This prompted an angry denial from Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu who said the countries’ relations "are not so weak that the French president can break them" File image of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad Reuters Alexander Shumilin a West Asia expert at the Institute for US and Canadian Studies in Moscow however said Douma fallout had "caused a crack in the alliance of three countries" He added: "If the trio falls apart entirely the ensuing events could be really bad" Turkey has a "completely different attitude" to resolving the conflict and Assad’s fate he said while Iran is seeking to destabilise the region to hurt Israel and Russia wants to "stabilise and leave" Alexey Malashenko a specialist in the Syria conflict was sceptical the meeting would achieve much beyond a show of unity saying the trio have a "very shaky" alliance Their positions on the suspected chemical attack are irreconcilable he said "Turkey has an absolutely honest position: it is against Bashar al-Assad and here there’s no way they can reach an agreement" Nevertheless the limited nature of US-led strikes suggests the "peak of tensions has passed" he said The Turkish foreign ministry said Saturday’s meeting "will focus on all aspects" of cooperation and "elaborate on the steps that could be taken from now on" while the Russian foreign ministry said talks would focus on the humanitarian situation Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov will also hold bilateral talks including on the "escalating situation" around the Iran nuclear deal spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said The most recent Syria talks attended by the foreign ministers in Astana were held on 16 March The next are set for 14 May EU diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini on Tuesday urged the three powers to do more saying they "have not only a responsibility but also an interest in making the ceasefire work" Eight rounds of talks under United Nations auspices in Geneva have made little headway with Assad’s government taking little interest Both Tehran and Moscow have deployed military forces to Syria to back up Assad in his now seven-year-old war against anti-government rebels Ankara has called for Assad’s removal throughout the war but has worked increasingly closely with Moscow and Tehran in recent months in an attempt to find a solution to the conflict In January Russia held a showpiece conference in the Black Sea resort of Sochi with largely pro-regime delegates which saw boycotts by rebels and made little progress Russian president Vladimir Putin hosted a summit on Syria with the Iranian and Turkish presidents in November They then met again in Ankara in April among other things. read more
