Kosovo UN to create trust fund following panel report on alleged rights

Among the cases reviewed by the Human Rights Advisory Panel, which examined alleged rights violations by the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), was a complaint submitted by 138 individuals from the Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities that they suffered lead poisoning and other serious health consequences as a result of their relocation to internally-displaced persons (IDP) camps in northern Kosovo. The trust fund will finance community-based assistance projects, primarily in North Mitrovica, South Mitrovica and Leposaviæ, but will benefit more broadly the Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities. “The assistance projects will focus on the most pressing needs of those most vulnerable communities, including with respect to health services, economic development and infrastructure,” said Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesman for the Secretary-General, in a statement. “The Secretary-General is keenly aware of the particular plight of those individuals, as well as the other members of these most vulnerable communities who also lived in the IDP camps” and “wishes to express the Organization’s profound regret for the suffering endured by all individuals living in the IDP camps,” the Spokesperson said.“The Secretary-General believes that it is our shared duty to support the Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities in Kosovo and ensure that they receive the assistance that they need,” Mr. Dujarric said, noting that the UN will make every effort, in consultation with Member States, to mobilize the necessary resources in support of the Trust Fund. The Organization will also continue to draw lessons from its experience in Kosovo and from the work of the Panel and take action to prevent such situations from happening again, he said.Since November 2007, the Panel has reviewed more than 500 complaints in the context of United Nations peacekeeping missions. In a number of cases, the Panel concluded that there had been failures to uphold human rights standards. The Panel completed its work on the Kosovo case and subsequently provided a final report in July 2016. read more

Buckeyes close out regular season with Big Ten split

The Ohio State women’s tennis team closed out the 2010 regular season this weekend winning one of two matches at home to finish at 18-8 overall and 5-5 in conference play.Coming off a hard-fought victory at Indiana the previous weekend, OSU welcomed the Wisconsin Badgers to Columbus Friday night for the first match of its final homestand.Able to carry over the momentum from the previous weekend, the Buckeyes made quick work of the overmatched Badger squad with a 7-0 victory.The convincing victory marked the team’s record-best ninth shutout of the year, surpassing its previous best of eight attained in both the 1978-1979 and 2006-2007 seasons.“It was a big match,” coach Chuck Merzbacher said. “We needed to get that win for Big Ten seeding and NCAA purposes, so that was an important match and fortunately we were able to get it.”Following Friday’s strong showing, the Buckeyes returned to the OSU Varsity Tennis Center on Sunday afternoon hoping to take down Goliath in the form of the No. 6 Northwestern Wildcats.Despite being backed by an enthusiastic, packed house, Northwestern proved to be too much to handle, downing the Buckeyes with relative ease 5-2.One of two seniors playing her final home match in scarlet and gray, Christina Keesey provided one of OSU’s few bright spots of the day downing her opponent in straight sets 7-6, 6-2.“Northwestern is a great team, and we knew we had to fight hard today,” Keesey said. “I was glad I was able to end the way I did, and the team battled as hard as we could so that’s all you can ask for.”With the regular season now behind them, the team has its sights set on Iowa City, where it will travel for the Big Ten Tournament on Thursday with high expectations.  “I was pretty pleased with the whole weekend,” Merzbacher said. “We competed pretty well and the Big Ten is wide open, so when we go to the Big Ten tournament I think we can play with anybody.” read more

CHPA seeking more support for housing expo 2017

Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Related Public Relations Officer attached to the Central Housing & Planning Authority, Jenelle CarterThe government is seeking increased support from corporate Guyana, not only to partner with the agency, but to showcase their products and services.Public Relations Officer (PRO) attached to the Central Housing and Planning Authority (CH&PA), Jenelle Carter, during a press briefing on Tuesday, at the agency’s Brickdam location, explained that the housing expo will be used as a platform for skilled persons. This will enable landscapers and furniture makers among others, and companies to showcase their products and services.“One of the concepts we are bringing to this expo is giving persons the opportunity to see what their homes would look like fully furnished, so we have companies on board like Kissoon’s who would furnish an entire home building so when you walk into a house, you wouldn’t just be seeing an empty house. You will see what your bedroom would look like, your kitchen would look like, so that it why we are calling for more companies to come on board,” Carter noted.According to the PRO, 20 booths have already been secured and others are welcomed to join. She noted that the agency will also have a booth that will help to inform persons about the construction of the houses and provide further information.Carter said that the CH&PA does more than provide lands and homes.  The agency also hopes to foster cohesion, empower residents and build sustainable communities. She added that the expo is also designed as a well rounded event for families and children since they have created separate areas to entertain those who will attend the expo.The building expo will be open to the public from May 26-29 under the theme “Housing Solutions 2017 and Beyond Exhibition,” at Perseverance, East Bank Demerara.Last month, during the official launch of the Ministry of Communities’ Housing Solutions 2017 and beyond programme, Minister within the Ministry of Communities Valerie Adams-Patterson said that the programme will bring resolution to those persons who form the huge backlog of applications at the Central Housing and Planning Authority (CH&PA), some of whom applied for their house lots since 1994.“It is painful to sit and hear the stories of some of our people as they visit my office, as I go out to consultation and meet people. It is sad to look into their eyes and to have them say ‘We do not have house lots,’” the minister added. She noted that it is the view of the government to provide all Guyanese the right to adequate housing and affordable housing. read more

Winning recipes creator used food diary to improve eating habits

first_img See all the recipessubmitted for the contest.Before Nicole Evans started keeping a food diary, she didn’t have a good idea of how much fat and calories she was consuming every day.Once she started the diary, Evans realized she needed to make dietary changes.An avid cook, Evans tried to incorporate more vegetables into her diet and stuck with meals low in fat, high in protein and full of nutrients.One of her favorite creations: White Bean and Green Chili Chicken Soup.“I just love chilies,” the 39-year-old Portland resident said. “I love spicy foods.”The original recipe includes tomatillos, poblano chilies and Anaheim chilies. The dish is moderately spicy, but omitting the chili seeds can tame the heat, Evans said.The dish also includes white beans and shredded chicken breast, making the soup protein-rich. The texture is closer to that of a chili than a soup, but Evans didn’t want to complicate the recipe name.Evans also includes pureed spinach leaves, sneaking in a serving of vegetables of which her 4-year-old daughter is unaware.“If I told her there was spinach in it, she probably wouldn’t eat it,” Evans said. “But since I puree it in there, she doesn’t know, and she loves it.” Portland resident Nicole Evans, 39, has been making her White Bean and Green Chili Chicken Soup for family and friends for several years. The soup includes tomatillos, poblano chilies, Anaheim chilies, chicken breast and white beans.last_img read more

Sanjay Manjrekar gets into Twitter spat with Michael Vaughan over Ravindra Jadeja

first_imgSanjay Manjerekar is a veteran commentator. TwitterFormer Indian batsman Sanjay Manjrekar has blocked former England skipper Michael Vaughan on Twitter after the latter had made a cheeky remark over the former’s comments on allrounder Ravindra Jadeja on July 9. The fight started off between them after Vaughan started joking when Manjrekar selected Jadeja in his predicted XI for the semi-final.It all started when Manjrekar said, while analysing the game, that Jadeja is a ‘bits and pieces cricketer’ to which Jadeja retorted back in Twitter saying that he had heard enough of the former’s ‘verbal diarrhoea’.Manjrekar’s said, “I am not a big fan of bits and pieces players which Jadeja is at this point of his career in 50-over cricket. In Test matches, he is a pure bowler. But in 50-over cricket, I would rather have a batsman and a spinner.”In reply to that Jadeja tweeted,” Still I have played twice the number of matches you have played and I m still playing. Learn to respect ppl who have achieved.i have heard enough of your verbal diarrhoea.@sanjaymanjrekar (sic.).”Still i have played twice the number of matches you have played and i m still playing.

Judge Rules Trump Administration Cant Arbitrarily Detain Asylum Seekers

first_imgReynaldo Leal for The Texas TribuneProtesters near the federal courthouse in Brownsville demonstrating against the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy.A federal district judge has ruled President Donald Trump’s administration’s practice of indefinitely detaining some asylum seekers can’t proceed, dealing a major blow to what immigration attorneys have said is one of the administration’s tools to deter people from seeking safe haven in this country.The lawsuit was filed in March by the American Civil Liberties Union and named as a defendant the El Paso Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) field office. Other field offices named in the lawsuit include Detroit, Los Angeles, Newark and Philadelphia. The El Paso office covers West Texas and New Mexico.The ACLU alleged in the lawsuit that the plaintiffs passed their initial “credible fear” exams – the first step in the asylum process to determine if an applicant has a legitimate case. But despite having sponsors willing to provide housing in the United States, the federal government has continued to hold them instead of granting them parole.“Today’s decision will have an enormous impact on asylum seekers, who pose no risk, and are currently languishing in detention. It is a rejection of the Trump administration’s blanket policy of denying parole to those seeking protection in this country,” said Human Rights First Legal Director Hardy Vieux.The plaintiffs in the case include a Cuban national who fled that country’s communist regime; a Haitian ethics teacher fleeing political persecution; a Honduran national who alleges persecution for being gay; and a Venezuelan who was beaten by armed groups seeking “to eliminate opposition to the Venezuelan government. They are represented by the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, Human Rights First, the Center for Gender and Refugee Studies and Covington and Burling LLP, a law firm based in Washington, D.C. In his Monday ruling, U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg granted a preliminary injunction preventing the federal government from denying parole to any provisional class members that are a party to the lawsuit. The lawsuit defines them as “asylum seekers who traveled to the United States, were found to have a credible fear of persecution, and were referred for immigration proceedings to decide their asylum claims.” The exception applies to people who pose a flight risk or a danger to the community.

Cyprus signs €100m loan agreement with EIB

first_imgTHE government and the European Investment Bank yesterday signed a loan agreement for €100 million to be used for various projects.The loan will be used to part-finance investments totalling €1.2 billion in areas identified under the National Strategic Reference Framework for the 2007-2013 period, which include improving the competitiveness of the Cypriot economy, promoting sustainable development, and investing in skills and innovation.This new loan complements a first loan of €200 million provided in 2012 for the same purpose.“It comes as a timely boost to the Cypriot economy and enhances the effective use of the EU grant funds allocated to the country,” said EIB President Werner Hoyer said. “We are joining forces with the European Commission in supporting the priority areas of sustainable development and human capital and building upon the excellent working relationship with the Cypriot authorities.”This second loan brings total EIB support for key investments in Cyprus to €300 million.Finance Minister Haris Georgiades said Cyprus was committed to implementing the necessary reforms but it was important that a helping hand had been extended at a time when it was needed.EIB finance focuses on solid waste management, renewable energy, skills and innovation and urban development.EIB, Vice President Mihai Tanasescu said that at a meeting with Cypriot Energy Minister  George Lakkotrypis he had asked the EIB to provide advice on how the construction of natural gas liquefaction terminal could be financed.“Our answer was a very clear positive answer, we can deliver, we can provide some financing advice to them to see this important project for Cyprus could be implemented”, he added.Asked whether the EIB was interested in investing in the LNG terminal the construction of which has been decided by the Cypriot government, Hoyer did not rule out the possibility of financing the project.“On the other hand we know that the most ambitious plans for the exploitation of the gas fields that might be available will take a little bit more time and so a transition period will probably be needed and for the long run an LNG terminal”, he added.Hoyer said that the EIB could conduct the necessary economic analysis from a banking point of view. He noted that “the EIB had a rather unique ability to combine the loan activity of a bank with the blending activity of EU resources, EU funds and the advisory capacity of the banks”.“So we can provide the necessary engineering advice that the authorities might need if they want to we stand ready”, he concluded.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementBad Digestion Slowing You Down?

victory speech delivered in the wee hours of Wednesday morning Trump credited his victory to voters "who want and expect our government to serve the people and serve the people it will" Now Trump has to prove it Trumps relationship with big money From Trumps first day on the trail when he rode the Trump Tower escalator down to announce his bid the first-time candidate told voters he would be different He was running against the establishment Republican as much as Democratic Politicians are "controlled fully theyre controlled fully by the lobbyists by the donors and by the special interests fully" he said And that he promised over and over through months of Republican primaries wouldnt be him "I really like the Koch Brothers (members of my PB Club) but I don’t want their money or anything else from them Cannot influence Trump" he tweeted Meanwhile his Republican primary opponents were on the money trail setting up officially sanctioned super PACs and courting big donors The money didnt help the super PACs werent enough and Trump endlessly mocked his opponents for toadying to big donors "I wish good luck to all of the Republican candidates that traveled to California to beg for money etc from the Koch Brothers Puppets" he tweeted in August 2015 Trump insisted he would self-fund and could spend as much as it took "By the time it’s finished I’ll have more than $100 million invested" he insisted during the second general election debate a figure he repeated throughout the race He put in about $46 million of his own money during the primary much of it in loans he eventually forgave Voters loved it They rewarded him with the Republican nomination But after securing the nomination Trumps tone changed In Clinton he faced a candidate with a fundraising operation unparalleled in politics Her campaign alone raised $510 million more than twice Trumps $255 million and together with outside groups supporting her bid ran 75 percent of the more than 500000 broadcast and national TV ads aired in the presidential race Trump essentially embraced big-money vehicles such as super PACs although combined groups supporting him raised a relatively scant $60 million through Oct 19 He courted big GOP donors such as casino magnate Sheldon Adelson His own contributions slowed and his fundraising events sped up And donors gained influence New York investor Robert Mercer and his daughter Rebekah who oversaw one of the earliest super PACs to swing support his way convinced Trump to reshape his campaign leadership appointing operatives with close ties to them In the end Trump put in a relatively paltry $66 million of his own about $1 of every $4 raised by his campaign And he never aggressively courted donors in the manner Clinton and her backers did According to campaign finance filings Trump raised at least $67 million from small-dollar donors who each gave no more than $200 Many of these contributors had purchased Trumps iconic "Make America Great Again" hats from his campaign or other merchandise such as the set of three "Hillary for prison" buttons sold by his campaign for $6 And Clintons superior campaign fundraising machine buttressed by the nations biggest-money super PAC in operation wasnt enough to halt Trumps unlikely march to the White House Clinton had huge ad advantage Trump spent the general election wildly outspent and facing a seemingly endless stream of ads from Clinton and her allies In Florida the No 1 target in the ad war of Team Clinton Clinton and her allies accounted for more than 75 percent of the 121000-plus TV ads aired during the general election according to a Center for Public Integrity analysis of advertising data provided by ad tracking firm Kantar Media/CMAG In most of the high-profile swing states the story was the same In Ohio Team Clinton was responsible for about 75 percent of the 79000 TV ads aired in the race since mid-June after the primaries had ended In North Carolina Team Clinton was likewise responsible for about three-quarters of the 63000 presidential race TV ads since mid-June And in Pennsylvania Team Clinton was responsible for nearly three-fourths of the 58000 or so presidential TV ads that aired there since mid-June The only exception: Wisconsin In the Badger State Trump and his allies were responsible for about 60 percent of the roughly 10000 TV ads aired in the state between June 12 and Nov 6 according to a Center for Public Integrity analysis of data provided by ad tracking firm Kantar Media/CMAG with the ad blitz beginning in mid-September Clinton who never visited Wisconsin during the general election and her allies didnt air general election TV ad in the state until Oct 29 The last time Wisconsin supported a GOP presidential nominee Ronald Reagan was on the ballot Spearheading the Republican push: Diane Hendricks the richest woman in Wisconsin who gave nearly $55 million to a super PAC that spent millions on ads in her home state attacking Clinton and Russ Feingold the Democratic candidate for US Senate Both lost in Wisconsin on Election Day A few big donors began putting real money into ads supporting him in the fall through a super PAC Future 45 and a related nonprofit group that does not reveal its donors Big donors included Adelson and Joe Ricketts the billionaire founder of TD Ameritrade The two groups together aired more than 9000 ads many in Florida In addition Trump far outstripped Clinton in free media with cable channels carrying his rallies live and his every tweet making news in a race that turned both ugly and personal "Lock her up" supporters chanted at rallies referring to Clinton His lean campaign relied heavily on the Republican National Committees turnout operation a strategy that paid off Clintons big money problem Big money can backfire as Democrats who have often fought for dramatic campaign finance reforms are painfully learning The benefits are as significant as they are obvious: a candidate may hire superior staff purchase more ads and run longer and harder than an opponent But the drawbacks proved to be equally profound for Clinton Although she routinely decried the US Supreme Courts Citizens United v Federal Election Commission decision she became one of its chief beneficiaries by building a massive money-making machine that fully exploited the high courts ruling While she promised to "fight hard to end the stranglehold that the wealthy and special interests have on so much of our government" her campaign and supportive super PACs solicited huge sums from elite political patrons Read More: Donald Trump Wins the 2016 Election And despite her railing against "secret unaccountable money in politics" the super PACs supporting Clinton collected eight-figures worth of money from sources trading in cash thats tough if not outrightly impossible to trace Money also couldnt adequately mask what many voters perceived fair or not as Clintons damning flaws Theres her penchant for secret-keeping be it delivering private speeches to Wall Street executives or shielding her State Department emails from public scrutiny And her Clinton Foundation wooing of the ultra-rich and unsavory foreign governments undercut her pledges that shes represent the interests of who she once half-heartedly (and ham-handedly) described as "everyday Americans" Bernie Sanders surprisingly strong challenge to Clinton in the Democrats presidential primary was largely fueled by liberals reaction against what many considered Clintons insincerity on matters of political money and influence After Clinton vanquished Sanders a US senator from Vermont she never quite captured his supporters energy and enthusiasm for her own purposes Trump meanwhile repeatedly hammered Clinton as "crooked" liar most interested in her own power and prestige No matter that Trump belittled his opponents exaggerated his charitable giving refused to release his tax returns and was caught on tape describing how hed sexually assault women The body politic sided with Trump over Clinton Draining the swamp Trump now turn to setting up an administration with jobs presidents often turn to lobbyists to fill and setting an agenda for his presidency Voters and campaign finance reform advocates will be looking to see how Trump acts to reduce the influence of money in politics that he decried throughout the campaign "To the extent that Mr Trump while campaigning has criticized the current campaign finance system his only solution offered seems to be more candidates like him who are billionaires and can self finance and thats not a solution" said Paul S Ryan vice president for policy and litigation at nonpartisan group Common Cause and a longtime advocate for campaign finance reform In October Trump released a slate of proposals that he said were meant to reform Washington He called for longer bans on lobbying by executive branch officials members of Congress and congressional staff He also said he would move to tighten the legal definition of lobbyists forcing more advocates to disclose their activities under laws covering lobbyists Read More: All the Emotions of Election Night in One Photo He also said he would ask Congress to prohibit lobbyists for foreign governments from fundraising for political candidates and seek a constitutional amendment requiring congressional term limits Trump has some measure of public faith: Respondents to a Center for Public Integrity/Ipsos poll earlier this year gave Trump higher marks than Clinton on the prospect of them reforming the nations campaign money system Still most of Trumps proposals are a tall order that would require support from Congress Constitutional amendments are exceedingly rare And much of the strength of his proposals lie in the details he has yet to flesh out In addition Ryan points out Trumps campaign lawyer Jones Day partner Don McGahn a former head of the Federal Election Commission has traditionally battled any restrictions on money in politics "Don McGahn says publicly that he thinks most campaign finance laws are unconstitutional" Ryan said What Trump thinks about this will be revealed as prepared to move into the White House This story is from the Center for Public Integrity a nonprofit nonpartisan investigative media organization in Washington DC Read more of

no moral compass might not have been our best choice for president" said Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday night He also turned his attention to the crowd’s behavior: "The people in the crowd when he did this they loved it He mocked this womans story about a sexual assault they ate it up they laughed they cheered I really dont understand it" The comments were perhaps even more surprising in the context which Kimmel noted was a "rally to support Mississippis first-ever female senator" While the White House stated that Trump wasnt mocking Fords assault but rather "stating the facts" key

goal is the morning after the election the news is all about the results and not about the voting process and we have succeeded with that for a number of election cycles" he saidFor North Dakota the

in Bismarck against House Bill 1400 which would cut the number of early voting days by more than half from 15 days to only the week before Election DayJaeger said his office also opposes House Bill 1238 which would prohibit absentee ballots from being sent earlier than 20 days before the election Both bills could make for longer lines at the polls which can discourage voting Montplaisir said"We’re trying to make sure that the voter has adequate access to the ballot and that it’s not cumbersome" he saidAccording to the Pew study North Dakota ranked sixth in shortest wait time at the polls in 2008 with the average line lasting around five minutes Minnesota was in the top 20 with a wait of only eight minutesThe longest average wait time in 2008 went to South Carolina with 61
