UNbacked scheme poised to bolster Middle East nuclear cooperation

A project backed by the United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has the potential to bolster nuclear cooperation in the Middle East.The scheme, known as SESAME, entails the building of a giant machine generating intense light beams for advanced scientific and technological research, and a research facility is being built near Jordan’s capital, Amman.“SESAME has a promising future, said Ana Maria Cetto, the IAEA’s Deputy Director General and Head of Technical Cooperation.The agency is providing technical assistance worth $1 million over the next few years for the facility, which is slated to be completed in 2010.Bahrain, Cyprus, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Pakistan, the Palestinian Authority and Turkey are members of the project, and earlier this month at a meeting at IAEA headquarters in Vienna, the SESAME Council accepted nominations from Iran and Iraq to join.“We’ve finally passed the point of no return,” said Herwig Schopper, the project’s departing president, who sees the initiative as being able to both benefit the region and serve to attract and keep top scientists.SESAME – which stands for Synchrotron-Light for Experimental Science and Applications for the Middle East – operates under the auspices of the UN Educational, Social and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).Synchronton facilities house huge particle accelerators which generate x-ray and ultraviolet light beams, and research could lead to advances in medicine, physics and other fields.The IAEA has begun training future SESAME users and operators on safely and securely running the facility, and the agency’s representatives help to select recipients of scientific fellowships.SESAME Council members will hold their next meeting in Cyprus later this year. 9 August 2007A project backed by the United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has the potential to bolster nuclear cooperation in the Middle East. read more

Top UN humanitarian official in Gaza concerned over closure of youth NGO

7 December 2010The top United Nations humanitarian official in the occupied Palestinian territory expressed concern today over the closure by local authorities of the Gaza-based offices of a non-government organization (NGO) working with young people. “I am very concerned about the forced closing of Sharek Youth Forum in Gaza,” the UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for the occupied Palestinian territory, Maxwell Gaylard, said. “Sharek Youth Forum is an important NGO partner of the United Nations in its work on behalf of children and youth in Gaza.”Describing itself on its website as “one of the leading independent, apolitical and impartial youth organizations in Palestine,” Sharek Youth Forum works to promote youth empowerment in the Palestinian territories. It was established in 1996, at which time it was funded by the Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation and the UN Development Programme/ Programme of Assistance to the Palestinian People. Sharek gained its autonomy in July 2004, following registration with the Palestinian Ministry of Interior as an NGO with charitable status.According to media reports, Sharek Youth Forum’s offices in Gaza City and elsewhere in Gaza were forcibly closed at the end of November and police broke up a student demonstration in its support over the weekend.Mr. Gaylard, who is also the Deputy UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, noted that “Sharek’s work forms part of the many important activities carried out by civil society organizations in the occupied Palestinian territory promoting development and the protection of human rights.”He said that freedom of association and freedom of expression are fundamental rights protected by international law as well as the Palestinian Basic Law and expressed his hope that Sharek would be permitted to continue its work in Gaza without further delay or undue hindrance. read more

Top US CEOs rethink the meaning of shareholder value

The shareholder comes first has for years been the mantra of the Business Roundtable, a group representing the most powerful CEOs in America.The group on Monday released a new mission statement that implies a foundational shift; a step back from shareholder primacy.The new mission statement on “the purpose of a corporation” emphasizes that all stakeholders are important and that includes workers, suppliers, customers and the communities where corporations operate.JPMorgan Chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon, who also chairs the Business Roundtable, said in a prepared statement that, “The American dream is alive, but fraying.”The perception that the American dream is out of reach for many people is a powerful narrative that has altered the political landscape ahead of the 2020 presidential election.Michelle Chapman, The Associated Press read more

Mexico reaches deal with private gas pipeline firms

MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s president says his government has reached a deal with private gas pipeline operators to solve a dispute over fees and payments.The pipelines would allow Mexico to import U.S. natural gas and distribute gas throughout Mexico. But President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said the private companies had taken advantage of the country when the contracts were signed under previous administrations.Lopez Obrador said Tuesday that companies from the U.S., Canada and Mexico agreed to restructure fees. He said the companies accepted about a 30% lower profit margin.The dispute had threatened Mexico’s reputation as a reliable place for private investment. The president said the deal would save Mexico — especially the national electricity utility — as much as $4.5 billion over the next three decades.The Associated Press read more

Mahdia now Guyanas 10th town

President David Granger and Minister of Communities, Ronald Bulkan unveil the plaque on the Mahdia Monument to officially declare the community a town. Looking on and applauding are (left) Minister of Social Protection, Amna Ally, Minister of State, Joseph Harmon; (right) Minister of Public Infrastructure David Patterson and Minister of Indigenous People’s Affairs Sydney Allicock.Mahdia now joins three other new townships; Bartica in Region Seven, Lethem in Region Nine and Mabaruma in Region One. It will serve as the capital town of the Potaro-Siparuni Region.The Government has said that it is the fulfilment of a larger vision of the Coalition Administration to establish a capital town in each of the administrative regions of the country.According to the Department of Public Information (DPI), President Granger described the event as one of the most powerful economic reformers in the history of Mahdia.“These capital towns will become hubs for development. What you’ll see from now on is the development of the administrative regions. I have seen men and women who are committed to making something from their capital town so we’re moving forward with the creation of these townships,” President Granger underlined.He called for greater collaboration to ensure the ongoing development of the regions.“You have to work with the government, region and upcoming municipality for improved services. The whole idea of regionalisation is not a pipe dream but a way to develop Guyana from the grassroots,” the President was quoted by DPI as saying.Minister of Communities, Ronald Bulkan noted that though Mahdia’s township status arrived after Mabaruma, Bartica and Lethem, the government’s greatest investment was made here with the nearly $1 Billion spent in upgrades of the internal road network.The Communities Minister indicated that the government is committed to working with the Toshaos of the Sub-regions Pakaraima, Campbelltown, Mickie; the Senior Councillor of Princeville; Regional Democratic Council members and all the residents of the region.In his remarks Minister of Public Infrastructure, David Patterson noted that his Ministry was challenged to ensure that its projects reflected aspects of both the green state agenda and the requirements of a modern new town.Regional Chairman, Bonaventure Fredericks welcomed the much-needed township status and noted that for the first time, the residents will exercise their constitutional rights by participating in the Local Government elections on November 12.At the end of the historic event, the Mahdia Monument was unveiled.Mahdia’s earliest recorded settlement is in 1884. In the 1930s, with the construction of the Denham Suspension Bridge and improved road access to the area, Mahdia grew to an area of prominence within the then British colony.

Skyrim requires 2GHz dual core CPU 2GB RAM

first_imgBethesda is set to release the next game in the Elder Scrolls series in less than three weeks on November 11th. We’ve already seen how good Skyrim looks in multiple gameplay videos, but what does that mean for the PC rig you need to play it?Surprisingly, the minimum spec is quite modest. As a bare minimum you will get away with the following components:2GHz dual-core CPU2GB RAMDirectX 9 graphics card with 512MB RAMKeep in mind that is the minimum hardware, and you won’t be able to turn the resolution up or have or the nice effects turned on.If you want to turn it up to 11, then you’ll need the recommended specs or higher. As the minimum specs are quite modest, I guess quite a few gamers will already have the following inside their case or laptop:Quad-core processor (we’re assuming 2GHz+ again here although it is not stated)4GB RAMDirectX 9 graphics card with 1GB RAM (GeForce GTX260 or Radeon 4890 minimum)In both cases the game works with Windows XP/Vista/7 in both 32-bit and 64-bit flavors and requires 6GB of hard drive space. You will also be required to setup a Steam account in order to activate the game. Many gamers will have been expecting that though, as Rage did exactly the same thing a few weeks ago.Of course, if you don’t have a PC good enough there’s always the console versions you can pick up. And somehow Bethesda managed to squeeze the whole game on to a single DVD for the Xbox 360.Is your PC good enough to handle Skyrim, or is this the excuse you needed to invest and upgrade?Read more at Bethesda Bloglast_img read more

Peter Casey challenged over immigration during European elections tv debate

first_imgPeter Casey challenged over immigration during European elections tv debate “What we can’t afford is to become a haven for freeloaders,” Casey told the Sunday Times. 50,222 Views https://jrnl.ie/4610036 Apr 28th 2019, 1:46 PM Source: The Week in Politics/Twitter The panel discusses the free movement of people. #rtetwip #rtepolitics #EP2019 pic.twitter.com/d6klcF4zqc— The Week in Politics (@rtetwip) April 28, 2019 Candidates speaking to Áine Lawlor during RTÉ during The Week In Politics Short URL “I think freedom of movement within the EU but we can’t have people coming into Ireland illegally and staying here and expecting to be housed and educated and looked after,” Casey said.Lawlor asked candidates if they agree that Ireland is taking its fair share of migrants and refugees within the EU.Fianna Fáil’s Brendan Smith said that Europe needs a “migration policy” before turning to address Casey’s comments in the Sunday Times. “Europe needs a migration policy but apart from ensuring that people come here who are fleeing torture and horror and war … those people are not freeloaders, Peter,” Smith said. Smith added that Europe needs to deal with the issues that causes these people to flee their countries. Lawlor then quizzed Casey on whether people from Syria are those he would call “freeloaders”.“No, absolutely not. Anybody who is coming from a war-torn area, we absolutely have a responsibility to take our allocation and we should,” Casey said.“We should give them a passport, we should give help them…” he said.Casey said Ireland should “take our fair allocation” of refugees but that “we should look after them when we bring them in and we should not put them in sort of an almost jail without walls which is what you call direct provision camps”.“If they are genuine refugees, we should take our allocation, we should look after them properly. If we’re not going to do that we shouldn’t bring them in the first place, it would be disingenuous,” he said.Moving to the other candidates, Luke Ming Flanagan said that “if we didn’t have a housing crisis we wouldn’t have the small bit of animosity that is there towards refugees”. Sinn Féin’s Matt Carthy said: “I think what we need to do, first of all, is actually treat those asylum seekers who are in Ireland with dignity, the direct provision centre should be an absolute source of shame to everybody in Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael.”Meanwhile, Fine Gael’s Marie Walsh said that “Ireland is richer when we have free movement and the fact that we’re supporting other EU countries, I think it’s absolutely integral”.Voting for the European Parliament elections takes place on 24 May.  Image: Screengrab via RTÉ Player EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT ELECTION candidate Peter Casey has said “we can’t have people coming into Ireland illegally and staying here” as he was questioned on comments he made about “freeloaders” coming to Ireland.In an interview with the Sunday Times, the former president candidate called for “freeloaders” who came to Ireland to be “put back on the plane”. “What we can’t afford is to become a haven for freeloaders: people who come in because they know that Ireland won’t deport them and will give them accommodation, will give them education, will give them medical services,” Casey told the newspaper. “We should take in our fair share of refugees; however, we can’t afford economic migrants to come in and we shouldn’t be forced to. We [should] put them on a plane and give them a ticket back,” he said. Casey today appeared on RTÉ One’s The Week In Politics for a studio debate ahead of next month’s European elections. He was joined by fellow candidates Maria Walsh of Fine Gael, Brendan Smith of Fianna Fáil, Matt Carty of Sinn Féin and Independent Luke Ming Flanagan.During the debate, presenter Áine Lawlor asked all candidates if they agree with the principle of free movement within the single market, to which they agreed.

Paypal poursuit Google en justice

first_imgPaypal poursuit Google en justiceAu lendemain de la présentation de Google Wallet, un service de paiement par mobile, Paypal a engagé une action en justice contre la firme de Mountain View. Le géant du paiement en ligne, qui poursuit également deux de ses anciens employés, accuse Google de plagiat.Jeudi, Google a dévoilé son service de paiement par mobile NFC, une technologie permettant le transfert de données à courte distance. Quelques heures plus tard, eBay décidait de poursuivre en justice le géant de la recherche sur Internet, annonce sur le blog de Paypal Amanda Pires, la directrice de la société. À lire aussiÉquinoxe du Printemps : pourquoi tombe-t-il le 20 mars ?eBay, la maison mère de Paypal, accuse Google de lui avoir volé des secrets commerciaux et industriels, avec l’aide de deux de ses anciens employés, Osama Bedier et Stephanie Tilenius, précise Mme Pires. Deux anciens cadres débauchés par la firme de Mountain View, qu’eBay attaque également en justice. Stephanie Tilenius a travaillé pour eBay pendant huit ans, entre 2001 et 2009. Consultante auprès de la société jusqu’en mars 2010, elle a été embauchée par Google en février de la même année, en tant que vice-présidente en charge du commerce électronique. D’après eBay, Stéphanie Tilenius aurait participé au recrutement d’Osama Bedier. Ce dernier a été embauché en janvier par Google, après avoir travaillé pendant neuf ans pour Paypal.Pour eBay, il est évident que les deux employés ont fait bénéficier Google de leur grande connaissance de Paypal pour le développement du Google Wallet. “Nous avons dépensé beaucoup de temps et d’énergie pour faire de PayPal un service unique, celui que près de 100 millions de personnes à travers le monde ont choisi. Nous prenons très au sérieux les secrets de PayPal, et le prenons personnellement quand quelqu’un les trahit”, déplore Amanda Pires.Le 27 mai 2011 à 15:57 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Des animaux introduits sur une île des Caraïbes il y a plus

first_imgDes animaux introduits sur une île des Caraïbes il y a plus de mille ansCaraïbes – Décrivant leur découverte dans le Journal of Biogeography, des archéologues américains ont mis au jour, sur une petite île des Caraïbes, les restes d’animaux non présents à l’état naturel, vraisemblablement introduits par des indigènes précolombiens il y a plus de 1 000 ans.Sur deux sites de la minuscule île de Carriacou, dans les Caraïbes, des archéologues des universités de Caroline du Nord, de Washington et de Floride ont trouvé des restes d’opossums, de pécaris, de tatous, de cochons d’Inde et d’agoutis (rongeurs), tous inexistants à l’état sauvage sur l’île : datés au radiocarbone entre 1 000 et 1 400 ans avant le présent, ces restes ne peuvent appartenir qu’à des animaux introduits par l’homme (depuis l’Amérique du Sud).À lire aussiLe mystère de “The Eye”, une petite île tournante découverte en ArgentineRares et très localisés (dans des sites par ailleurs bien connus par les archéologues), ces restes proviennent d’animaux qui ne devaient pas être des produits de consommation courante pour les insulaires : “nous soupçonnons que c’étaient des aliments consommés par des personnes de haut statut, ou utilisés dans des événements rituels”, explique le Dr Scott Fitzpatrick, anthropologue à l’Université de Caroline du Nord.Cette combinaison de critères – une zone géographique réduite mais une grande diversité d’animaux importés – ajoutée aux indices livrés par d’autres études – des artéfacts issus du commerce avec d’autres îles et avec le continent (l’Amérique du Sud) – suggère que Carriacou a pu avoir une certaine importance dans la région à l’époque précolombienne, en tant que lien d’interactions entre les communautés insulaires.Le 2 décembre 2011 à 18:10 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more
