Senior UN official calls for urgent measures to mitigate impact of landslides

12 August 2009Action must be taken to mitigate the impact of landslides such as those triggered recently in parts of East Asia by Typhoon Morakot, which has reportedly buried entire villages and killed scores of people, a senior United Nations official working on disaster risk reduction stressed today. “As this week’s tragic events in East Asia show once again, people living on unstable slopes and steep terrains are particularly at risk from landslides in the wake of torrential rain and flooding,” said Margareta Wahlström, who heads the UN International Strategy for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR). “While landslides are hard to predict, people living in landslide-prone areas can be alerted in advance if there are monitoring and warning systems in place to measure rainfalls and soil conditions,” she added.Ms. Wahlström underlined the urgency of these measures by pointing to population growth and the urbanization of steep hillsides, along with the predictions by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) of more intense rainfalls in the future, leading to increased instability of slopes and making more people vulnerable to landslides.She also highlighted the case of Hong Kong, where a ‘Slope Safety System’ introduced in the mid-1970s has resulted in a 50 per cent fall in casualty rates from landslides since 1977, and is targeting a further reduction – to 75 per cent – by 2010. In addition, an early warning system implemented in Costa Rica, which trained some 200 people in disaster preparedness and 30 people as radio operators, saw a dramatic improvement in the response to a second landslide in nine months, saving hundreds of lives.“Landslides are a growing problem in many countries, but, as these examples show, people living in landslide-prone areas can be better protected,” said Ms. Wahlström, who is also Assistant-Secretary-General for Disaster Risk Reduction. read more

Law firm seeks classaction against SNCLavalin in connection with charges

SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. faces new legal troubles as a shareholder has initiated a class-action lawsuit in connection with the company’s disclosure about the criminal charges against the embattled engineering firm.Law firm Strosberg Sasso Sutts LLP filed a proposed class-action in Ontario Superior Court on Monday that alleges the company failed to disclose soon enough that federal prosecutors declined to invite it to negotiate a remediation agreement.The allegations have not been tested in court.The Montreal-based company is at the centre of a scandal enveloping Ottawa after the Globe and Mail reported the Prime Minister’s Office pressured former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould to steer prosecutors to hammer out a remediation agreement that would have averted a criminal trial.The legal action says the head of the federal prosecution service told SNC-Lavalin on Sept. 4 that she would proceed with fraud and corruption charges stemming from the company’s business in Libya. The company did not inform shareholders until Oct. 10, at which point the share price dropped more than 13 per cent.“That should have been disclosed to investors,” said lawyer Jay Strosberg, who represents plaintiff John Peters.Provincial securities law requires publicly held companies “to publicly disclose any material changes” in the business, according to the Ontario Securities Commission.“Take for example someone who bought shares between Sept. 4 and Oct. 10. If he would have known, maybe he would not have bought the shares. And if the information was disclosed, he would have bought the shares at a lower price,” Strosberg said.The lawsuit seeks $75 million in damages for shareholders who acquired SNC-Lavalin securities between Sept. 4 and Oct. 10, he said.SNC-Lavalin declined to comment.The proposed class-action suit is the second against SNC-Lavalin in three weeks. Earlier this month, shareholder Ruediger Martin Graaf sought authorization from Quebec Superior Court to bring a class-action for what he calls the company’s “false or misleading” statements about its predicament in Saudi Arabia.SNC chief executive Neil Bruce said in January that ongoing diplomatic tensions between Ottawa and Riyadh were hurting business and forcing the company to consider a possible retreat from the oil-rich state.The feud, as well problems with a Chilean mining project and an arbitration loss in Australia, prompted the company to cut its financial guidance on Jan. 28, resulting in the second of three drastic drops in the company’s shares since October.Companies in this story: (TSX:SNC) read more

Victims can help shape effective counterterrorism strategies says senior UN official

“Victims are powerful and credible messengers,” the Under-Secretary-General of the UN Counter-Terrorism Office, Vladimir Voronkov, at a roundtable discussion on victims’ resiliency in New York. “And I promise that we will continue to make victims our priority,” he added. To rectify a deficit of information on and for victims, the UN Victims of Terrorism Support Portal was created in June 2014. It has grown in strength, attracting more and more users to its site, he said. The UN Office of Counter-Terrorism has also commissioned a series of documentaries on victims of terrorism. Created together with the Department of Public Information (DPI), the series provides a platform to give victims a voice on a variety of issues. At Thursday’s event, the documentary Surviving Terrorism: Victims’ Voices from Norway, offered an intimate portrayal of two victims of the July 2011 mass killings by Anders Breivik. The film showed the lives of Ms. Kamzy Gunaratnam and Mr. Viljar Hanssen as they recover from the attack and turn their experiences into something positive. “Building a resilient society is a powerful tool in the fight against terrorism,” Mr. Voronkov said at the earlier discussion. “A society that is resilient is more likely to uphold human rights and the rule of law, and not give into the grievances of terrorists.” read more

Bucyrus commissions 49HR rotary blasthole drill equipped with high altitude compressor option

first_imgA Bucyrus 49HR rotary blasthole drill equipped with a 107 m3/min air compressor has ben commissioned at Collahuasi copper mine in Chile. This is the first of two 49HR drills equipped with high altitude air compressors that Collahuasi will receive in 2009. Collahuasi is situated in Northern Chile at an elevation of 4,500 m – an ideal environment for use of a 107 m3/min air compressor.  This combination should maximise drill productivity at Collahuasi by enabling drill operators to achieve target bailing velocity and optimum radial clearance.Air compressors de-rate in high elevation and high temperature environments, causing bailing velocity to decrease.  As bailing velocity deteriorates, so too will drill productivity.  The use of a 107 m3/min air compressor at an operating pressure of 448 kPa, like the option available for Bucyrus drills, allows drill operators to maintain target bailing velocity – between 2,240 and 3,660 m/min) – and optimum radial clearance – 25.4 to 50.8 mm) – in both high elevation and high temperature environments. Bucyrus drills equipped with 107 m3/min air compressors are also beneficial in mines with fractured rock strata, as air released from the compressor can escape into ground cracks, causing loss of air volume. The added power offered by this air compressor will reduce the net loss of air volume in porous ground, ensuring target bailing velocity and optimum radial clearance.   In addition to the productivity benefits offered, the Bucyrus 49HR Drill equipped with such a compressor garners greater energy savings for mine owners/operators.  Because the Bucyrus 107 m3/min air compressor option has an operating pressure of 448 kPa, as opposed to 758 kPa, the drill is able to operate at lower power.  In fact, when compared to a drill equipped with a 107 m3/min compressor using an operating pressure of 758 kPa), the drill and compressor combination at Collahausi should require nearly 150 kW less to meet equivalent drilling productivity.  Thus, operating at a lower power will lower associated energy consumption and cost while maintaining an equivalent rate of productivity.The Bucyrus line of rotary blasthole drills equipped with a 107 m3/min air compressor offer the a good drilling solution for high elevation (above 2,440 m), high temperature (above 38oC), and heavily fractured ground strata mine environments.last_img read more

24000 € EHF fines Croatian Handball Federation

← Previous Story Staffan Olsson about new rules: Handball becomes boring! Next Story → RIO 2016: TOP 10 handball guys to watch at Future Arena! croatian handball federationEHF The EHF Court of Handball has reached a decision in a case against the Croatian Handball Federation opened after the failure to deliver a TV signal via satellite within the organisation of the Women’s EHF EURO 2016 Qualification match between Croatia and FYR Macedonia on 5 June 2016.The Croatian federation received several reminders regarding the aforementioned obligation, and a similar situation had occurred one year ago.Nevertheless, the national federation did not undertake any step to find a solution and the matter had to be solved by the EHF in light of the urgency of the situation.The obligation is set forth in particular in the “Minimum Requirements for TV Host Broadcasters” applicable in accordance with Article 40 of the EHF EURO Qualification Regulations.Hence, the Court of Handball finds, quoting the decision, that the Croatian Federation displayed “a total lack of interest” and adopted “an unacceptable and negligent behaviour” towards an essential obligation regarding the TV production of the most important national team competition in women’s handball. Such an attitude was regarded by the Court of Handball as “an aggravating circumstance”.Consequently, a fine of €24,000 is imposed on the Croatian federation in accordance with Article D.1 f) of the EHF List of Penalties.Half of this fine is imposed on a suspended basis with a probation period of two years as of the date of the present decision.An appeal may be filed with the EHF Court of Appeal within seven days.PHOTO: Filip ViranovskiSOURCE: EHF read more

Three main candidates vie for open West Anchorage seat

first_imgVoting is underway in a special election to pick a new Assembly member to represent west Anchorage. The seat opened up when Assembly Member Tim Steele stepped down in June for health reasons.The district includes neighborhoods like Spenard, Turnigan, Sand Lake and Valley of the Moon.Listen nowWhile the election is certainly a local political affair, the Anchorage Assembly has a disproportionate influence on state politics, stemming in part from Anchorage’s role as the state’s main hub. Even Alaskans living in distant communities regularly deal with policies enacted by the body, be it in extra hotel and rental car charges, permits for businesses, even money spent buying gas or groceries whenever it weighs different tax policies.Additionally, the Assembly is like a farm league for politicians who go on to become mayor, get into the Legislature and hold state-wide office. People like Tony Knowles, Mark Begich, Anna McKinnon, to name a few, all came up through the Anchorage Assembly.This special election is on a compressed time-line, with just a few weeks between candidates filed to run, when ballots were sent out, and are due back by August 7th.Technically there are seven candidates, but only three are being seriously watched, having launched organized campaigns that are garnering meaningful endorsements, getting literature or digital media in front of voters, or have attracted donations.The candidate with a presumed lead in the race is Austin Quinn-Davidson.“I’ve lived in Anchorage for seven years,” Quinn-Davidson said by phone in an interview earlier in the week.The 38-year-old Quinn-Davidson has amassed the largest war-chest in the brief race; as of July 9th when the first round of campaign disclosures came out she had raised more than $34,000, much of it from individuals as well as a handful of political action groups representing unions. She’s wracked up endorsements from six of the 10 sitting Assembly members, along with multiple progressive organizations and prominent democratic politicians. But Quinn-Davidson says she isn’t interested in bringing partisanship to the Assembly.“In my profession, what I do is bridge the gap and bring different groups together. And I think that’s what we want on the Assembly, we want some one who’s a bridge-builder,” Quinn-Davidson said.Quinn-Davidson is a lawyer for the Great Land Trust, an environmental conservation organization. She currently serves on the city’s budget advisory board. In door-knocking throughout the district she says crime is the number one issue for residents. She wants to address it by continuing enforcement policies undertaken by the Berkowitz Administration like growing the size of the police force, as well as putting more resources put toward what she calls “root causes” like substance abuse.“The percentage of these calls (APD is) responding to that are related to drugs has spiked in the last few years,” Quinn-Davidson said. “So I think that there’s an opportunity there to take a hard look at what are we doing and where are we filling the gaps if there isn’t state money to pay to address some of the opioid addiction that we’re facing.”Quinn-Davidson shies away from offering specific proposals she would advance on the Assembly, tending instead to emphasize process. For example, she likes the recently approved ordinance on accessory dwelling units because it received lots of input from community councils. Likewise, if elected, she wants to solicit advice from small business on how to revise and improve the local permitting process.Quinn-Davidson is one of only two candidates to have gotten donations from APDEA, the union representing police employees.The other is Nikki Rose, who as of her last financial disclosure had raised just under $1,800. But, several prominent conservative figures have thrown support behind the 35-year-old, who grew up in West Anchorage and is now raising her family there. Rose leads her local community council, and explained that if elected, she wants to encourage neighborhood groups to organize citizen patrols to confront crime.“One of the things I really enjoy doing is the community patrols,” Rose said. “I think that frees up a lot of the officers to do what they really need to do, and that is: get a handle on the bigger issues with crime.”When it comes to measures that are within the Assembly’s control, Rose does not offer many concrete policy proposals. She identifies homelessness in the municipality as a major issue, and has broad criticism of the state and current administration for Anchorage’s public safety situation. But doesn’t offer many specifics.“When I look at what government is best at, government is best at getting public safety, and is best at delivering safe roads, safe utilities, all those kind of parts of government are really important,” Rose said. “I want to focus on those types of issues (that) the current administration isn’t focusing on and refocus it on those issues.”Rose is running the furthest to the right in the race, garnering praise and endorsements from prominent conservative and Republican figures like Assembly Member Amy Demboski, former governor Sean Parnell, and several former Anchorage mayors.The third candidate people are watching is Sam Moore, who works as a contract accountant.“Pretty exciting stuff,” Moore joked.The 33-year-old is originally from Missouri, he’s lived in Anchorage for a little more than five years, always in the same district. He’s very active in his local community council, and he has a firm grasp of what kinds of policies are in the purview of a municipal body like the Assembly. For example, public safety is one of the issues he thinks is most important in his district, but he’s candid about how much influence he’d have on that if elected.“Frankly there’s not a lot some one on the Assembly can do for public safety except for complain to the administration,” Moore said matter-of-factly. “It comes down to the budget, it comes down to holding the chief accountable, it comes down to holding the mayor accountable on these issues. And if the Assembly doesn’t feel that adequate things are being done, then the budget’s going to get adjustments of one kind or another.”Assembly races are technically non-partisan, but candidates tend try courting members of the two political parties. Moore describes himself as a “progressive Republican.” He has a wonk’s appreciation for down-in-the-weeds details, eager for example, to discuss why he thinks the financial valuation of the pending utility sale of ML&P is important, or how come zoning is a critical issue.“Zoning and land use, frankly, is one of the biggest things that I think impacts our daily lives,” Moore said solemnly. “It drives the type of housing we have, it drives the type of commercial establishments we have, it drives where our breweries are, it drives where your weed dispensary is. Any number of things, it all comes down to zoning.”Moore is visually impaired, and has been a consistent advocate for better public transit options and bringing in transportation companies like Uber and Lyft to Anchorage. He’s only raised around $3,500, and doesn’t have many endorsements from unions or public officials.Ballots have been mailed out to qualified voters in West Anchorage. Votes can be cast by sending ballots back through the mail, putting them in drop boxes, or the election center down by Ship Creek by August 7th.More information can be found here.last_img read more

There is nothing else quite like it.”But Halevi is also well aware of the antipathy many in Jerusalem — a religious, conservative city — feel toward LGBTQ people.“I personally haven’t experienced any incidents, but there is fear,” Halevi said. “During past pride parades, when I left the secure area and went back into society, I didn’t know whether anyone was looking at me. So you fold up your (rainbow) flag and peel off your stickers.”Despite this, Halevi has no plans to leave the holy city.Liora Halevi, who is bisexual, has an uneasy relationship with Jerusalem due to the hostility of some of its conservative and/or religious residents. RNS photo by Michele Chabin“My family is here,” she said. “My life is here.”Although many LGBTQ Israelis and Palestinians have moved to liberal Tel Aviv, considered one of the most LGBTQ-friendly cities in the world, those who live in Jerusalem are trying to make their city a more tolerant one.“Jerusalem is the largest city in Israel, the capital city,” said Ofer Erez, CEO of the Jerusalem Open House advocacy group. “We believe that everyone around the world, of any religion or orientation, deserves to feel proud and welcome in Jerusalem.”That’s admittedly a challenge, Erez said, in a city where some residents go out of their way to make LGBTQ people feel unwelcome.Last month, the city’s chief rabbi demanded that no rainbow flags be allowed at the march, saying that they made the city ugly, according to The Jerusalem Post. In recent days a politically right-wing organization posted billboards asserting that the only real family is headed by a father and a mother.Many members of the Facebook group Secret Jerusalem condemned the billboards as deeply offensive. But a few blasted the pride flags and other march-related items cropping up in the city before the march. One Orthodox Jewish member grumbled that Israel has become “nationally obsessed” with LGBTQ rights, “as if it is our national identity.”In the past, the controversy over the parade has led to violence. During the 2015 Jerusalem pride march, an ultra-Orthodox extremist stabbed to death 16-year-old Shira Banki, a straight teenager, and injured other marchers.The mood was festive at Jerusalem’s Pride and Tolerance march on June 6, 2019. RNS photo by Michele ChabinThe extremist had recently been released from prison after stabbing three people a decade earlier. Israeli police were blamed for not providing adequate protection to the marchers due to anti-LGBTQ bias.Blanki’s slaying shocked both the police and leaders from various ethnic and religious communities, to the point where some were willing to sit down with LGBTQ leaders.“Today we have a productive dialogue with conservative and religious groups,” said Erez.When a crime against an LGBTQ person is committed, Erez said, the criminals aren’t necessarily motived by religion.“They only use religion as an excuse for their radical, homophobic feelings,” Erez said.This year, 2,500 police guarded the festive pre-march event, which was held in a park surrounded by police barricades.Every person who entered the enclosed space had to undergo a security check.Ronit Horwitz Peskin, who is ultra-Orthodox, planned to attend the march because the Torah commands Jews to treat people the way they want to be treated.“What better way… to announce myself as an ally, and to say I don’t support hate and bigotry, because that’s not what my Torah says. And that’s what I’m teaching my kids by bringing them,” Peskin wrote in a Times of Israel blog post.The march was a joyful event for the thousands who attended. Participants waved rainbow flags and cooled themselves with rainbow fans and rainbow ice pops. Many wore T-shirts, created by the Reform movement, with the biblical commandment Peskin cited.At the Jerusalem Pride and Tolerance march, Sara Halevi, center, and other mothers offer Free Hugs From Moms on June 6, 2019. Halevi, a cognitive behavioral therapist, has treated numerous LGBTQ teens who have contemplated suicide. Many were rejected by their parents. RNS photo by Michele ChabinFor Sara Halevi, Liora’s mother, it was a chance to offer motherly hugs to anyone seeking one.The elder Halevi, a cognitive behavioral therapist, said she has treated numerous LGBTQ teens and young adults.“100% of the ones who have come through my door from religious families have contemplated suicide,” she said.Walking hand in hand at the event with a friend, Anna Levi, a 21-year-old transgender woman who grew up in an ultra-Orthodox home in Jerusalem, said she felt “empowered” by the sight of thousands of city residents waving banners and singing songs in support of LGBTQ rights.Levi said the city’s annual pride march is a beacon of light in an often hostile city.“Jerusalem is very oppressive. People stare. I haven’t been confronted, but my friends have. Some have been beaten up. Sometimes it’s scary to go outside.”For at least one day, that changed.And Levi remains undaunted.“I’m here to stay.” Instagram apostasy stirs controversy over Christian ‘influencers’ August 30, 2019 As Amazon burns, Vatican prepares for summit on region’s faith and sustainabilit … August 30, 2019center_img Share This!

This can have a huge effect on the price you pay for flights; use Skyscanner’s month view’ to find the cheapest days to travel. Generally, midweek is cheapest, so try to avoid travelling at weekends if you can.Timing also comes into play if you visit big attractions abroad, for example Disney World. In the US, schools have different holidays to UK schools, so a trip during the last week in August is a good time to go, as this is when crowds start to thin out and there are even special rates offered.Save on accommodationThere are some advantages to staying in hotels but they also tend to be the most expensive form of accommodation. A cottage or apartment may be better suited to keeping the family happy, and be cheaper too; you tend to get more space as well as your own cooking facilities which helps keep costs down.Also consider a camping holiday; they’re cheap, informal, outdoorsy and fun. Pick somewhere with a good climate and you should be able to avoid the wet weather that often plagues camping trips on UK soil. There are many organised campsites that provide a ‘house tent’, cooking equipment and a reasonable level of creature comforts – perfect for families. For something similar but different – try a stay in a Yurt, Tee Pee or Bell Tent – which tend to offer little luxuries and are guaranteed to keep the kids happy.Book earlyIt’s almost always best to book your holiday early as you tend to get the best prices on flights and accommodation well in advance because many operators offer early booking discounts. If you’re willing to take a gamble, it is possible to get good last minute deals, but you’ll have to take what’s left rather than having the pick of where you actually want to go.Eat local – but avoid the tourist trapsSometimes children can be fussy about trying unfamiliar foods, but if you pitch it right – feeding time can be fun time. Be sure to avoid overly touristic venues (which are normally overpriced and over populated) and instead head to local supermarkets or the smaller, family run restaurants which tend to be more family friendly and better value too.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map There’s no doubt about it, kids cost a lot.
