Prestigious UN honours awarded to disaster prevention experts

5 October 2007A Japanese professor who educates both the Government and the public on practical skills for disaster risk reduction and an engineer from Grenada and Barbados focusing on building safety are recipients of this year’s prestigious United Nations Sasakawa Award for Disaster Reduction. A Japanese professor who educates both the Government and the public on practical skills for disaster risk reduction and an engineer from Grenada and Barbados focusing on building safety are recipients of this year’s prestigious United Nations Sasakawa Award for Disaster Reduction. “The award recognizes the efforts of these individuals – both trained as engineers – to communicate effectively on hazard and risk-related issues with a wide range of stakeholders including social scientists, engineers, architects and decision-makers as well as the general public,” said Salvano Briceño, director of the Geneva-based secretariat of the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR). “Their ability to bridge the gaps between science and practice has brought disaster risk reduction closer to people’s daily’s lives.” Kyoto University Professor Yoshiaki Kawata, who specializes in disaster risk reduction, has been selected for the honor for his promotion of research and knowledge about past disasters. According to the ISDR, he has highlighted the lessons learned from the Great Hanshin Awaji, or Kobe, Earthquake which took over 6,400 lives and is one of the most devastating earthquakes in Japanese history. Mr. Kawata has dedicated much of the past three decades raising public awareness of disasters; in 2002, he founded the Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution and established the Kobe Disaster Reduction Museum to educate both the public and local governments in practical knowledge and skills. A pioneer in advancing safe architectural and designs to resist natural hazards, Tony Gibbs works as an advisor for the UN and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) Disaster Mitigation Advisory Group on hospital safety. He has made significant contribution to hazard awareness and disaster risk reduction n the Caribbean and throughout the Americas, according to ISDR. He has also focused on designing structures to protect hospitals against wind and earthquakes, influencing standards and advances in building design worldwide. Aside from these achievements, Mr. Gibbs is also being awarded the prize for his advocacy and leadership role in sharing knowledge with engineers, architects, builders and the public. A Sasakawa Certificate of Distinction was also awarded to ActionAid International, a South African non-governmental organization (NGO) for its role in incorporating disaster risk reduction and the Hyogo Framework – which offers a number of concrete steps to make communities and nations more resilient to any type of disaster – into is sustainable development activities. The Social Action Centre in the Philippines, La Red Habitat en Riesgo in Argentina and the South African Disaster Mitigation for Sustainable Livelihoods Programme are being recognized for their efforts with Sasakawa Certificates of Merit. The UN Sasakawa Award for Disaster Reduction, along with the UN World Health Organization (WHO) Sasakawa Health Prize and the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) Sasakawa Environment Prize, was established in 1986 by the Nippon Foundation in Japan. Laureates are selected by the UN Sasakawa jury, comprising representatives from the five continents. read more

Humanitarian access key challenge for UN agencies assisting Pakistanis

20 October 2009As civilians continue to flee South Waziristan amid Pakistani military operations against insurgents, the United Nations refugee agency is stressing the need to ensure that assistance can reach the displaced. “Humanitarian access to people in need remains the key challenge for humanitarian agencies in this operation given the volatile security environment in the displacement areas,” Andrej Mahecic, spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), told reporters in Geneva.UNHCR is supporting the registration of new arrivals in the districts of Dera Ismail Khan and Tank in the North West Frontier Province (NWFP), where some 32,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) have been registered by local authorities since 13 October. They join more than 80,000 people who had fled South Waziristan since May this year, bringing the total number of registered displaced to more than 112,000 people.UNHCR, working through local partners, has been distributing relief items such as kitchen sets, blankets, sleeping mats and jerry cans to registered IDPs. Mr. Mahecic said that so far, the IDPs have been accommodated by the host families. “Generally, this has been the trend in the north-west part of Pakistan,” he noted. When more than 2 million Pakistanis were displaced by the conflict between Government forces and militants in NWFP earlier this year, the majority of them were accommodated by host families. About half of those IDPs have since returned to their homes.The Government has informed UNHCR that it is considering the establishment of camps and the agency stands ready to assist in providing all-weather tents and site preparation if required. Mr. Mahecic said that in addition to the aid given to individual families, assistance will need to be extended to hospitals, schools and other public facilities that may come under strain with large influxes of people.Meanwhile, some 3,600 people recently displaced by the conflict in Bajaur agency of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) continue to seek shelter in Lower Dir. Efforts are underway to pitch tents in the Wali Kandow camp in the same district, while the rest of the people are to be sheltered at the Khungi Shah camp, recently vacated by displaced people who have returned to their homes. The newly displaced join more than 58,000 Bajauris residing in various camps in NWFP after fleeing several waves of conflict since August 2008. read more

Sierra Leonean judge reelected head of UNbacked war crimes tribunal

31 May 2010Justice Jon Kamanda of Sierra Leone has been re-elected to serve as President of the United Nations-backed war crimes tribunal set up to deal with the worst acts committed during the long and brutal civil war in the West African nation. This will be his second term as the Presiding Judge of the appeals chamber, a post which automatically makes him the President of the Special Court for Sierra Leone (SCSL). Justice Emmanuel Ayoola of Nigeria, who previously served as the court’s President, also also been re-elected as Vice-President, according to a press release issued today by the court from Freetown, the capital. The SCSL’s judges wrapped up their 14th plenary on Friday in The Hague, voicing “sincere appreciation and gratitude” to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for the use of its courtroom and other support for the trial of former Liberian president Charles Taylor, who is under indictment for war crimes and crimes against humanity. The Special Court is an independent tribunal established jointly by Sierra Leone’s Government and the UN in 2002. It is mandated to try those who bear the greatest responsibility for atrocities committed in Sierra Leone after 30 November 1996. Last September, the eight prisoners convicted and held by the SCSL were transferred to Rwanda to serve their sentences since no prison in Sierra Leone meets the required international standards. The remaining trial, involving Mr. Taylor, is continuing at The Hague, where it was moved for security reasons. read more

Breaking out of IsraeliPalestinian political morass requires courageous work of many –

Painting a troubling picture of the situation during a quarterly briefing to the 15-nation body, Nickolay Mladenov, Secretary-General’s Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, said that the conflict has now arrived at “a pivotal point.” Israelis and Palestinians must now actively shape their future – with the dedicated support of the international community – “before the opponents of peace decide their fate for them,” he said.The recent spiral of violence, which has to date taken at least 137 Palestinian and 19 Israeli lives, cannot be reversed by security means alone, he said, adding that leaders on both sides must show a political will to their people and stand up to incitement and the radicals among their own constituents.Only genuine progress towards just peace that allows the people of Israel and the people of Palestine to live side by side in safe and secure borders will end the bloodshed and counter the rise of extremism, he said.Over the last year, the United Nations, the United States, Russian Federation and the European Union, which comprise the diplomatic Quartet on the Middle East peace process, have engaged actively in seeking a way forward out of the deadlock, noted Mr. Mladenov. The Quartet has sought how to preserve the two-state solution, and create the conditions that would allow the parties to return to meaningful negotiations on resolving the final status issues and ending the occupation that began in 1967. Meeting at the Principles level last week in Munich, the Quartet decided to prepare a report on the status quo, including recommendations on the way forward. The report should help build international consensus for the way ahead, he said.Israel’s settlement enterprise continues to be an impediment to peace, and some Palestinian factions continue to glorify violence and terror, he said, urging both sides to stop activities that undermine the peace process. Appealing to the leaders of both peoples and all international stakeholders, Mr. Mladenov said there are clear avenues out of the current political morass but they require unity of effort and bold, creative and courageous work of many. “The cold reality for the Israeli and Palestinian people is that all have failed them,” he said urging the two sides to work together to reach a solution. read more

Berzins brothers to battle in Chicago volleyball match

When the Buckeyes step into Gentile Arena in Chicago on Saturday and senior outside hitter Mik Berzins looks at the opposing team’s bench, he will see two people he knows quite well. “I’ve grown accustomed to playing my brothers over at Loyola,” he said. “It’s a good rivalry.” Berzins’ brothers, Kris and Dainis, have made the family name synonymous with volleyball at Loyola University Chicago, just as their father paved the way for Mik at Ohio State. The tradition begins with OSU Hall of Famer, Aldis Berzins. The Olympic gold medalist and former outside hitter led the Buckeyes to four Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association championships and four NCAA Final Four appearances between 1975 and 1978. Like father, like sons. Kris, Mik and Dainis have played at the outside hitter position and have made strides within their respective programs. Even the youngest Berzins, sophomore Dainis, started in 21 sets last year and tallied 113 kills, according to Loyola’s athletic website. “We all really support each other and want to have the other one do well,” Mik said. “I’m not going to cheer whenever Dainis gets a kill, but I wish him the best.” Former all-American Kris Berzins amassed more than 1,000 kills and 500 digs in his career with the Ramblers, one of only seven players in school history to do so. After a year on the professional circuit in Austria, Kris returned to Chicago as an assistant coach for the 2012 season. Ramblers’ coach Shane Davis said he tried to recruit Mik, too. “I thought we had him,” Davis said. “He took another look at Ohio State unfortunately, but we definitely wanted him.” Mik said he chose OSU over Loyola because he could see himself succeeding in the versatile program. “I came in as a libero, and I got the opportunity this year, and a little bit last year, to play some outside hitter,” he said. “Ohio State was the best place for me to go.” Mik has helped propel the Buckeyes to an 11-4 record with 120 kills, 10 service aces and a 0.928 serve percentage so far this season. He also has the most career digs in school history with 787. OSU’s coach Pete Hanson describes Mik as a passer, defender and server, but not one to be distracted by the family feud that awaits him this weekend. “Mik does a great job for us,” Hanson said. “He’ll be in a good frame of mind in terms of Ohio State volleyball.” The Buckeyes are 28-13 on the series against conference rival Loyola, and are on a five-match winning streak. The No. 14-ranked Ramblers have fared better at home, however, with a 9-7 record against OSU there. Davis, who shared the MIVA Coach of the Year award with Hanson in 2010, said that he is most looking forward to “all the hype” surrounding the match. “The two teams, we have a lot of history together,” he said. The trio from Brinklow, Md., will reunite Saturday after OSU makes a stop in Romeoville, Ill., to face No. 7-ranked Lewis on Thursday. Both matches are set to begin at 7 p.m. read more

Wenco fleet management being deployed at Roy Hill

first_imgWenco International Mining Systems has been contracted to supply the Wenco Fleet Management System at the Roy Hill Iron Ore Project in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The Roy Hill project has a defined mineralisation of more than 2.4 billion tonnes of +55% Fe iron ore and an estimated mine life of 20 years. Roy Hill is incorporating new technologies, including the Wenco Fleet Management System to create a technologically advanced mining operation.Part of this technology push includes the construction of a remote operations center in Perth, 1,200 km from the mine, which will provide end-to-end integration of operations by managing safety, human capital, and production through the adoption of state-of the-art automation. “The Roy Hill project is not only a rich iron ore deposit, but it will also be a great example of integration of new technologies in surface mining,” explains Wenco Regional Director Jayson Bebek. “We are very excited that Roy Hill chose the Wenco Fleet Management System as the solution to meet their needs for remote dispatching and comprehensive fleet management.” The initial deployment of 34 Wenco units for shovels, trucks, and dozers will begin in 2014, with additional units slated for install as the mine increases production.last_img read more

Bombshell Fianna Fáil split in Limerick after election success

first_imgFOUR FIANNA FÁIL councillors in Limerick have broken away from the main party.The split comes as a shock after the party secured 13 seats across the city and county council in last week’s local election – more than any other group.Eddie Ryan, Kevin Sheahan, Kieran O’Hanlon and Joe Crowley have formed a group called ‘Independent Fianna Fáil’ after a bitter row over leadership split the party.The Limerick Leader has reported that councillors Michael Collins, Fianna Fáil’s leader on the council, and James Collins met with the manager of the local authority, Conn Murray, behind deputy leader Ryan’s back.Ryan told the paper that he was “naturally disappointed to hear that two of my colleagues had met with management without including me in that mix”.A vote for the leadership resulted in Michael Collins being re-elected over Ryan, by eight votes to five. James Collins was elected deputy leader over O’Hanlon, by nine votes to four.‘Winding me up’ attempted to contact several of the Fianna Fáil and Independent Fianna Fáil councillors this afternoon, but most were unavailable.One councillor said that those who remain within the original party group are meeting this evening at 5 pm to discuss how to move forward. He described the split as a “bombshell”.Eddie Wade, who retired as a Fianna Fáil councillor in the area last week, said he was shocked by the news, adding he thought his friend was “winding me up” when he told him the news this afternoon.Speculation has been mounting as to how the split will affect the council and what new alliances will be formed.In the election, Fine Gael secured 12 seats across Limerick City and County Council, Sinn Féin and independents both won six, while Labour secured three.Read: Who is your new local councillor?

Dublin campaigners protest demolition of apartment complex and pool for MetroLink

first_img Short URL Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 22 Comments 29,262 Views Feb 25th 2019, 6:11 AM Monday 25 Feb 2019, 6:10 AM Alternatives to demolition include moving the hub closer to the River Liffey, says Dean, or finding suitable nearby location. ”There was also the option of using Apollo House. That would have been perfect.”The site of the former Apollo House was sold last year for €50 million. Dean says that the development of the city centre and City Quay has led to a situation where the public housing is being neglected and the public resources are being torn down.center_img What you see is vacant property, neglected public housing and new expensive builds and office blocks.So far, over 1,500 signatures have been gathered supportive of College Gate residents and those campaigning to save the leisure centre. Tomorrow at 5pm, campaigners are gathering at the Markievicz Leisure Centre before marching to the Dáil at 6pm.  Dublin campaigners protest demolition of apartment complex and pool for MetroLink The Markievicz centre was refurbished by Dublin City Council for €1 million in 2016. Share18 Tweet Email4 Source: GoogleMapsRESIDENTS IN DUBLIN City Centre will march to Dáil Eireann tomorrow over plans to demolish an apartment block and local leisure centre to make way for MetroLink. People living in the College Gate apartment complex on Townsend Street on the southside were told last year that the building, including the Markievicz Leisure Centre below, are to be knocked down to make way for a new transport hub at Tara Street for the new rail line linking Dublin Airport to the city. John Dean, spokesperson for Save Markievicz Pool & Gym campaign, says that the leisure centre is the only affordable option for many of its customers, who benefit from Dublin City Council’s discount Passport for Leisure scheme.The pool and gym were only refurbished by Dublin City Council for €1 million in 2016. Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) and the National Transport Authority (NTA) plan to demolish the newly renovated pool and gym, as well as the 70 College Gate apartments above, home to 150 residents. “Everybody is saying, ‘We weren’t consulted’,” says Dean, who adds that, so far, communication from both TII and Dublin City Council has been lacking. Labour councillor Dermot Lacey has sought information from council management and the NTA. “We’ve had no update,” he says. It was revealed last week that the southside section of the MetroLink is set to be scrapped following local opposition and potentially significant disruption to the Luas Green Line. A revised route for the rail line is due to be published in the coming weeks, an NTA spokesperson confirmed. “Those amended plans will be subject to a further round of public consultation,” they continued. Dean says that residents and leisure centre users want TII and the NTA to reconsider plans to knock the building on Townsend Street to make way for MetroLink, which is due to open in 2027.  Related Read 22.02.19 Metrolink: How did we get here and what’s next?

Prostitution crack down necessary says Premier to Police Commish

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 23 Dec 2015 – A new thrust in crime prevention is coming as the Royal Turks and Caicos Police Force is about to get the green light to be far more aggressive when it comes to cracking down on prostitution. The Premier, in a media release from the Governor’s Office giving an update on a Friday meeting of the National Security Council, is reportedly pushing for prostitution and human trafficking to get keen focus in the National Security Strategy, which is a plan under construction. Details of the strategy are to be presented by Commissioner James Smith in January when the NSC meets again. Very careful consideration to address the higher incidence of crime in Providenciales is the reason the Police Commissioner on December 18, gave to the Premier and the Governor for the transfer of police officers from Grand Turk to Provo. Commissioner Smith expressed that the shuffle of the eight officers was done in a way that it will not hurt policing in the Capital. The Premier, Hon Dr Rufus Ewing was not 100% sold on that though and said the re-deployment should be monitored to see the impact it has on the Capital. During that NSC meeting, Premier Ewing again called for the introduction of CCTV and street lighting to be increased. It was revealed that at least one resort owner has reported that crimes against guests is up, this includes harassment of visitors to our shores.The Governor, Peter Beckingham determined that he will write and request a meeting with that resort owner with an update to come at another NSC. Absent from the NSC meeting were Deputy Governor Anya Williams and Border Control Minister Donhue Gardiner.

GCI Completes Purchase of 3 Southeast TV Stations

first_imgGCI has completed its purchase of three television stations in Sitka, Juneau and Ketchikan. The deal means the telecom giant now owns almost every commercial TV station in Southeast Alaska.Download AudioGCI announced Monday that its subsidiary, Denali Media Holdings, had officially closed its purchase of Southeast’s three CBS affiliates: KTNL in Sitka, KXLJ in Juneau, and KUBD in Ketchikan. According to GCI spokesman David Morris, the company paid about $1-\ million to buy the three stations from Colorado-based Ketchikan TV.GCI Antenna. Photo by Sir Mildred Pierce/Flickr Creative Commons.GCI now owns six broadcast TV stations, five of them in Southeast. In 2013, the company bought the two NBC affiliates in Southeast – Sitka’s KSCT and Juneau’s KATH – as well as the CBS affiliate in Anchorage, KTVA.Morris says that viewers won’t see any programming changes in the near term. But down the line, GCI is hoping to roll out services that would allow viewers to watch GCI content on demand on their TV, computer or phone.“Where everything is moving at least in this field is on-the-go-type TV services, so that you can see what you want on the device that you want, and this is all part of the integration strategy, at least, that we’re looking long term on how to provide that kind of thing,” Morris said.GCI is Alaska’s largest cable TV operator, and also provides internet, telephone and cell phone service. The shift into broadcast television over the last two years marks a big change for the company.“What we are doing is preparing for future technology developments and quite frankly industry changes,” Morris said. “Entertainment is a ever-changing field, and we want to be able to bring the latest technologies and developments to Alaska as soon as we can, and this is our first steps into being able to do that.”GCI first announced its intention to buy the three Southeast CBS stations in December 2013. The Federal Communications Commission had to approve the sale; it did so in May.Asked if GCI has any other acquisitions in the works, Morris would only say, “we’re always looking for some opportunity out there.”last_img read more

Sushma Swarajs tryst with Twitter as foreign minister

first_imgSushma Swaraj also helped in rescuing a woman from the clutches of human traffickers in the middle-east, after a man named Dev Tamboli sought the EAMs help. She helped in the release of Hamid Ansari, who was imprisoned in Pakistan for 6 years and finally let free in 2018. In 2018, she assured assistance to a woman whose brother had met with an accident in Kuwait and was unconscious. The woman said that she had lost contact with him and needed the MEAs help to bring him back. The former EAM provided all needed assistance to bring back the man. She also assured help to a group of Indian students of the University of Illinois in the US who lost their passports in a fire accident. External Affairs Minister Sushma SwarajWu Hong-Pool/Getty ImagesThe former External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj was one of the ministers of the country who had used Twitter as an important tool to answer citizens’ pleas for help instantly, and address their problems quickly.Well-known as the easily-accessible foreign minister ever, Swaraj had helped many Indians, who were stuck abroad. With the help of Twitter account, she used to answer the queries of people and direct them properly through her official account that has over 13 million followers. She was known to have helped thousands of citizens living abroad by reuniting them with their families.In her final tweets, she had congratulated all the MPs of Rajya Sabha, for passing the resolution on scrapping Article 370 on August 5. “Gave true homage to the sacrifice made by Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee and fulfilled his dream of one India,” read her tweet.She also congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah for the monumental decision. “I was waiting to see this day in my life….Thank you Prime Minister. Thank you very much. I was waiting to see this day in my lifetime,” read her last tweet. It turned out to be a premonition as she breathed her last the next day. Long Twitter JourneyA look at how Swaraj navigated her way into the hearts of people using Twitter is far more interesting than her entire political career.In 2015, the Indian Army launched Operation Rahat (an 11-day evacuation) to evacuate more than 4,741 Indians and 1,947 foreign nationals from Yemen by air and sea routes during the military intervention by Saudi Arabia.

In 2016, she provided help to Captain Nikhil Mahajan to come to India from the United States to attend his late brother’s funeral. Captain Nikhil is the brother of martyr Captain Tushar Mahajan.

Read Between the Lines Its wrong to criticize Aaron Rodgers for Jordan

first_img Advertisement Until his recent stint on ABC’s “The Bachelorette”, Jordan Rodgers was a marginally successful quarterback at Vanderbilt who bounced around several NFL teams as a backup. His biggest claim to fame is being the brother of Packers All-Pro quarterback Aaron Rodgers.Jordan shocked many Bachelorette viewers, mostly sports loving boyfriends forced to watch the show with their significant other, when he took a shot at his brother on a recent episode. Jordan revealed that he and Aaron do not have a close relationship, or really much of a relationship at all.“It’s just the way he’s chosen to do life,” Jordan lamented. “I chose to stay close with my family and my parents and my brother.”Today in “Read Between the Lines”, Colin and Jason were asked if it’s wrong to criticize Aaron Rodgers for his bother’s comments. Colin said Aaron shouldn’t take heat for the comments because he has other obligations as a franchise quarterback that may limit his “bro” time. “The super successful sibling, often, can’t always be at every family picnic. I’m sorry if Aaron Rodgers can’t be with the “fam”, because he’s preparing to face somebody in the NFC Championship.”Jason agreed that it’s off base to criticize Aaron Rodgers for his relationship with his brother, and he had harsh criticism for Jordan Rodgers using Aaron as his meal ticket to the Bachelorette.“Who is Jordan Rodgers without Aaron Rodgers? Would he be on the Bachelor, or Bachelorette, or whatever show it is, if he wasn’t Aaron Rodgers’ brother? That’s the only reason he’s on there. He’s using Aaron Rodgers to build up himself. This is disgusting.”It’s sad, but sometimes siblings just don’t get along.

Virgin Blue Skywest announce alliance

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: N.J Virgin Blue Group and Skywest have teamed up, signing a ten year alliance to codeshare on each other’s domestic networks. According to a Virgin Blue statement, the alliance will increase the airline’s reach into regional Australia, with Skywest operating up to 18 Virgin Blue branded aircraft to new and existing destinations around Australia. Virgin Blue Group chief executive and managing director John Borghetti said the airline’s partnership with the regional carrier will strengthen Virgin’s domestic and regional network. “This alliance will significantly benefit regional Australia as well as being a win-win for Skywest and Virgin Blue,” Mr Borghetti said. “The combined strength of our networks, along with the additional capacity we will deliver with new aircraft, will provide travellers with more frequent flights, better schedules and competitive fares.” Skywest chairman Jeff Chatfield said the partnership will allow the airline to provide its corporate travellers access to destinations across Australia and internationally. “The leasing arrangement means that Skywest will not be exposed to the capital investment of owning the aircraft and will be a service provider and code-share partner,” Mr Chatfield said. Mr Borghetti said the first Virgin Blue branded aircraft will arrive mid 2011, and four more will be delivered towards the end of the year. “These modern aircraft will have excellent fuel efficiencies, allowing us to keep airfares low for our customers.” last_img read more
