Hunger funding deficit threatens survival of millions in Horn of Africa warns

9 June 2009A deadly mix of persistent drought, conflict and the high cost of food are again threatening millions of lives in the Horn of Africa, with the global financial crisis intensifying the danger and desperation across the region, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) warned today. A deadly mix of persistent drought, conflict and the high cost of food are again threatening millions of lives in the Horn of Africa, with the global financial crisis intensifying the danger and desperation across the region, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) warned today.Already short on funding, WFP is feeding over 17 million people in the East African region, with numbers expected to rise in Somalia, Kenya, Ethiopia, northern Uganda and Djibouti in the coming months.“We are knocking on the door of a major regional crisis,” said Ramiro Lopes da Silva, WFP’s Special Envoy for the Horn of Africa. “Millions of people across the region are seeing their lives spiral steadily downwards as this frightening confluence of factors – all beyond their control – pushes them closer to destitution,” stressed Mr. Lopes da Silva. On top of the mounting humanitarian crisis, WFP is suffering a funding shortfall of almost $450 million needed to continue feeding the hungry in the region for the next six months. Urging donors to step forward quickly and generously before it is too late, Mr. Lopes da Silva said that WFP have reached millions by using “our limited resources intelligently and creatively, but there is no disguising the worrying gaps in our budget for our operations in the Horn.”WFP said that humanitarian assistance is vital for people who are struggling to survive as they sell off assets in a bid to pull through the successive years of drought and conflict, combined with the high price of food on local markets. read more

Every two seconds a baby is born in a conflict zone –

“Can there be a worse start in life?” asked UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake in a news release, appealing to the world to translate promises made in historic agreements over the past year into action to benefit the most vulnerable children in 2016.“The final months of 2015 have seen the world come together around tackling climate change and a new global development agenda. These ambitious agreements present a huge opportunity if we can translate our promises into action for the most vulnerable children,” he said.“If we address the reasons so many families feel the need to uproot themselves and their children from their homes – by resolving conflict, by addressing climate change, by expanding opportunity, we can make 2016 a year of hope for millions – not a year of despair,” emphasized the UNICEF chief.UNICEF said that in conflict-affected countries such as Afghanistan, the Central African Republic, Iraq, South Sudan, Syria and Yemen, or on perilous journeys to escape fighting, newborn children and their mothers face enormous risks.Pregnant mothers are in danger of giving birth without medical help and in unsanitary conditions, and their children are more likely to die before they reach their fifth birthdays and to experience extreme – or ‘toxic; – stress, which can inhibit their long-term emotional and cognitive development, it said.“Every two seconds, a newborn takes its first breath in the midst of conflict, often in terrifying circumstances and without access to medical care,” Mr. Lake said. “Too many children are now starting their lives in extreme circumstances – from conflict to natural disasters, poverty, disease or malnutrition.”And in addition to conflict and poverty, UNICEF noted the effects of climate change and lack of opportunity are making children increasingly vulnerable and have pushed millions on dangerous journeys away from their homes. UNICEF also noted: More than 200,000 children applied for asylum in European Union countries in the first nine months of 2015, adding to the 30 million children across the globe forced from their homes by 2014 due to war, violence and persecution. More people are displaced now than at any moment since World War; More than a quarter of a billion children – or 1 in 9 – live in countries and areas in conflict and face enormous obstacles to their health, education and well-being; More than half a billion children live in areas where floods are extremely common and nearly 160 million live in high or extremely high drought severity zones; and Children represent almost half of all people living in extreme poverty although they make up roughly a third of the world’s population. read more

4 players ejected from Ole MissMiss St Egg Bowl after fight

OXFORD, Miss. — Four players were ejected from the Egg Bowl between Mississippi and Mississippi State after a fight at the end of the third quarter.Ole Miss appeared to score a touchdown on the final play of the period when A.J. Brown crossed the goal line. Players started shoving immediately after the play, and the fight spilled over across the end zone with several punches thrown. Both benches emptied onto the field before order was restored.Brown’s touchdown was called back because time had expired in the third quarter. No. 22 Mississippi State was leading 28-3 at the end of the period.Every player on both teams received an unsportsmanlike penalty. Mississippi State’s Willie Gay Jr., Jamal Peters and Cameron Dantzler, and Ole Miss’ C.J. Moore, were ejected.

Tulane bowl hopes hinge on win against struggling Navy

NEW ORLEANS — One year after coming up a yard short of bowl eligibility, Tulane aims to avoid cutting it so close this time.The Green Wave (5-6, 4-3 AAC) needs a victory over visiting Navy (3-8, 2-5) on Saturday to reach the six-victory plateau, which would virtually assure Tulane its first bowl bid since the 2013 season and only its third since 2002.“We’ve increased our conference wins. Getting to a bowl game would be big for us,” third-year Tulane coach Willie Fritz said.Tulane ended last season just short of the goal line as time expired in a wild 41-38 loss at SMU which doomed Tulane to a 5-7 record and a fourth straight campaign with no post-season. So returning players are no stranger to the scenario they face against the Midshipmen.“Our guys brought outstanding effort last year in that particular game and just came up short,” Fritz said. “We know what’s at stake. I think all the guys understand that.”Although Navy is having a down year, it snapped a seven-game skid with a 37-29 win over Tulsa in which senior quarterback Zach Abey rushed for 128 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries. Navy amassed 389 yards on the ground in the game.“It was a great feeling,” fullback Anthony Gargiulo said. “The offence has been a little rough here and there throughout the year, just with wrong steps, trying to figure out positions for certain guys, but it felt good to just feel like everything clicked.”The Midshipmen, who run an option offence and don’t pass much, lead the AAC in rushing with 304.6 yards per game. Navy slotback Malcolm Perry reached 1,000 yards for the season last weekend, his second straight season hitting that mark.“We need to play physical,” Fritz said. “They’re a very, very, very physical football team. We’ve got to come out and answer that physicality from the get-go.”Some things to know about Navy and Tulane:ROAD WOESNavy has yet to win on the road this season, having dropped 11 straight games played away from Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Navy’s last road victory was a 31-21 triumph at Tulsa on Sept. 30, 2017. Navy has played in New Orleans 11 times in program history, going 2-8-1. But the last time Navy played at Tulane in 2016, the Midshipmen won, 21-14.TIME OF POSSESSION: With Navy keeping the ball on the ground, opponents tend to have fewer possessions than usual. So Fritz is emphasizing the importance of efficiency when his team has the ball.“Normally we have right around 13 possessions in a game. They’re around nine to 10,” Fritz said. “You’ve got to take advantage when you have the ball. You’ve got to do a really good job in the kicking game where they’ve got to go long distances so you can give up some first downs, get a stop and they’re still having to punt the football. Once they cross midfield, they’re almost in four-down situations.”AERIAL AVERSIONNavy ranks last out of 129 Football Bowl Subdivision teams in passing. The Midshipmen are averaging just 60.2 yards per game, or 20 yards behind 128th-ranked Georgia Southern. The Midshipmen have completed four passes or less in eight of 11 games and are only 1-of-4 passing for 15 yards in their past two games combined.WAVE RUNNERSTulane’s running back tandem of Darius Bradwell and Corey Dauphine have combined for more than 1,658 yards from scrimmage, with both averaging better than 6 yards per carry. Bradwell, who has averaged 6.1 yards per rush and scored nine TDs, needs 82 yards to reach 1,000 this season. Dauphine has 740 yards and seven touchdowns rushing, averaging 6.7 yards per carry.___More AP college football: https://apnews.com/tag/Collegefootball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25Brett Martel, The Associated Press read more

Are sweets at the checkout your downfall

first_img52 per cent of parents found it hard to get their children to eat healthily due to the amount of snacks at supermarket checkouts, with most of them (68 per cent) pestered by their children for chocolates at checkout.Lidl has 130 stores in Ireland and there have been calls for them to bring in the same system here.Fine Gael Dublin Senator, Catherine Noone, has not only called for Lidl to bring in the ban but she’s calling on all supermarkets to take a stand.I would call on other supermarket chains to follow this lead and consider doing the same. Self-regulation could go a long way in this field and, with one in four schoolchildren now classified as overweight or obese, it’s clear that this is a problem that we cannot ignore. WE’VE ALL BEEN there, you’ve managed to get through your shop picking relatively healthy options.You look with pride at your trolley stuffed with fruit, veg and salad and then you wait at the checkout …and find yourself slipping all sorts of goodies in your once-wholesome stash.Well, Lidl customers in the UK will no longer have the seducing sweets laid out in front of them at the checkout.The supermarket chain has announced it will ban sweets at the counters and replace them with healthy snacks.According to the supermarket’s figures published in the Huffington Post: We’ve asked Lidl for a comment on whether the ban will be coming into Irish stores but they haven’t got back to us at this stage.

VIDEO Aguero on the double as Man City swamp Leeds in Cup

first_imgA SERGIO AGUERO brace was the highlight of Manchester City’s comfortable 4-0 FA Cup fifth round victory over Leeds today, a win that will lift, at least temporarily, speculation about the future of manager Roberto Mancini.With City 12 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester United, the FA Cup remains Mancini’s most realistic hope of winning silverware this season and Aguero’s efforts, together with goals from Yaya Toure and Carlos Tevez, carried his team through to the last eight with the minimum of fuss.“I think it was really important to win this game. If you score two goals within the first 20 minutes it is easier,” said Mancini.“Our strikers need to continue to score like they did today. If they do that, we can have other chances.”City wasted no time in taking out recent league frustrations on their Championship visitors and, even before their fifth minute opening goal, Leeds ‘keeper Jamie Ashdown had been forced to race from his area to beat Aguero to an under-hit back-pass.Neil Warnock’s players were still struggling to come to terms with the task in hand when Yaya Toure left them with a mountain to climb.The Ivory Coast international exchanged the ball with both David Silva and Tevez in a flurry of passes before advancing into the area and comfortably beating Ashdown and an attempt by Lee Peltier to clear off his line.It was the start of a half of almost unrelenting City dominance with Tom Lees’ timely tackle stopping Aguero, Silva flashing a shot wide and Tevez shooting into the side netting from an Aguero pull-back, all in quick succession.Finally, after 14 minutes, Leeds succumbed to the inevitable after Lees was harshly judged to have pulled back Aguero on one of his trademark snaking runs into the area.The Argentinian international took the spot kick himself, calmly converting past Ashdown.YouTube: Hakob HakLeeds finally launched a meaningful attack of their own as El Hadji Diouf headed just over from Sam Byram’s 15th minute cross. But, apart from City goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon being forced to punch away a 45th minute free-kick from Ross McCormack, the remainder of the tie quickly degenerated into a question of how many City would score.It took until the sixth minute of the second half for City to finally find the third goal that rendered any prospect of a Leeds fightback out of the question. Aguero played a one-two with Silva before continuing a sprint towards the left-hand by-line from where his cross was met on the goal line by Tevez, who forced the ball into the open net.YouTube: ncnncncAs City pressed on Yaya Toure might also have extended the lead when he met Silva’s cross with a powerful shot which Ashdown parried directly to substitute Jack Rodwell who could only head against the cross-bar with an open goal at his mercy.As Leeds supporters expressed their growing unrest with manager Warnock, the afternoon might have turned even uglier for the mid-table Championship side had Aguero made decent connection with an eight-yard shot which dribbled through to the goalkeeper.Aguero finally added the fourth goal that City’s superiority merited after 73 minutes, following Silva’s well-timed pass picking out the Argentinian’s run beyond the Leeds defence. Aguero did the rest with a confident finish past the advancing Ashdown.- © AFP, 2013John Terry slams talk of Benitez rift as Chelsea cruise in FA CupITV’s unfortunate mis-spelling of Rafa Benitez’s name during Chelsea’s clash with Brentfordlast_img read more

Police Commissioner debunks resignation rumors

This time the Commissioner himself is assuring that he will return to work next week. Commissioner Smith, who was announced last December for the post and took on the job in February, has been off work a month after being on the job just six months. The Blog contends the Commish is disappointed in Police operations and the writer reminds that their blog had warned the new top cop about potential corruption thwarting his pronouncements of reformation. Smith said he is simply on vacation though and promised that he remains “fully committed to the task and completely supporting his officers and staff who together will help make the Turks & Caicos a safer community with support from communities and government.” Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Recommended for you Special Force helping murder cases in TCI Increased Police presence promised, TCI Police Commissioner statement on recent shootings PDM sends Commissioner another message: Bring GT Police Officers backlast_img read more

Star Wars The Old Republic prelaunch First impressions

first_imgHaving pre-ordered Star Wars: The Old Republic over the summer, I was excited when I received my invitation to play on the first day of pre-launch. Being a lifelong Star Wars fan, and an avid player of Sony’s now defunct Star Wars Galaxies (before the NGE debacle), the anticipation of the release of this title was at record levels for me.A couple of us Geek.com authors will be taking a look at the MMORPG from Bioware over the next few weeks and reporting on our experience. Today’s article is geared towards first impressions of the early stages of the SWTOR.Upon entering the game and choosing a server (which is done for you if you registered with a guild during the pre-deployment phase), you are presented with the character creation tools you come to expect from a RPG. As advertised, you get to choose between the Galactic Republic or the Sith Empire fctions, as well as a class you would like to play.The big improvement in this game over Galaxies is that everyone who wants to be a Jedi — either light or dark — can do so. It’s something any geek who has ever wanted to yield a light-saber will appreciate.After character creation, the first thing that you notice about the game is that it’s very story driven. Instead of dumping your newly-minted character into a newbie area, the game opens narratively. This experience is supposed to be dynamic, based on what faction and class you choose, so I won’t go too much into detail and spoil anything for you. Bioware worked hard to make the game feel much more personal and accessible, in my opinion they succeeded. I felt like I was playing a massive version of a solo console game.During this opening sequence, you are given a very specific set of goals that are a bit dull, but crafted to teach a player the ropes. I was sent on a rescue mission, as well as a retrieval assignment in my first story area.While the missions may have been dull, the combat I had to engage in was not. While not a full action based control set, there’s strategy involved when swinging a light saber, or using the force to smash a rock into an opponent, as pictured above. Battle is exciting and balanced — if you have three enemies shooting at you, your health takes a good hit even if you are a Jedi. You also get bonuses for taking a target unawares, which is very enjoyable.I started out with a training saber, the ability to force-hurl objects and a critical hit special that has a longer cool-down timer. As I leveled, I received an AOE that sends all enemies in range flying and does damage. Combining the different abilities to dispatch an opponent keeps the process fresh without feeling like it’s a grind.Quests in the game are linked by the Class Story system. So far this has been a great guide of what to do next. I can recall playing Everquest and having no clue as to what I should have been doing when I was new to the game. As a halfling druid (yeah, I know,  everyone was), I was deposited in a city and literally wandered around for hours trying to figure out what my next step were. SWTOR feels focused on the experience a new player has by providing a linear storyline to introduce the game.Other miscellaneous touches that I noticed were things like the use of your character name during the legendary “flying text” opening as the game is loading and the amount of voice acting that went into the development of the title. It’s really nice to have NPC’s give you quests through spoken words rather than just a list of things to accomplish. It adds to the ability to roleplay (so long as no one is around) and immerse yourself in the culture of the game.Check back for more SWTOR reports during the pre-launch phase. Until then, May the Force be with you.SWOTR Character CreationSWOTR Character CreationJedi templeCombatClass StoryCharacter Creationlast_img read more

UK Proposes Stricter Child Safety Rules for Social Media

first_imgThe UK is calling on social media to step up their child safety guidelines.Turning off reaction buttons and limiting data collection are among the 16 recommendations for age-appropriate design, released this week by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).“There has to be a balancing act: protecting people online while embracing the opportunities that digital innovation brings,” UK Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham wrote in a blog post.AdChoices广告“And when it comes to children, that’s more important than ever,” she continued. “In an age when children learn how to use a tablet before they can ride a bike, making sure they have the freedom to play, learn, and explore in the digital world is of paramount importance.”Some proposed standards seem obvious: limit how children’s personal data is collected, used, and shared; disable geolocation tools and targeted advertising as standard.Others, as recommended by the ICO, may not be:Ensure privacy information and policies are concise, prominent, and easy to understandAlert children if their parent or guardian is monitoring their online activityIntroduce age verification checks or treat all users as if they were childrenAvoid using “nudge” techniques (Snapchat “streaks,” Facebook “likes”) to tease out unnecessary personal data or keep under-18s online longerThis code, as described in a consultation document, is aimed at providers of information society services—i.e. anyone producing apps, programs, websites, games, community environments, connected toys, and devices with or without a screen that are “likely to be accessed by children in the UK.”Companies that do not comply with the new standards could face fines up to €20 million ($22.59 million) or 4 percent of their annual global turnover (about $1.6 billion for Facebook, The Guardian reported).“The answer is not to protect children from the digital world, but to protect them within it,” Denham said (emphasis hers).The code, expected to come into effect before the end of this year, will be the first of its kind, helping to “set an international benchmark,” according to Denham.“It will leave online service providers in no doubt about what is expected of them when it comes to looking after children’s personal data,” she wrote. “It will help create an open, transparent, and protected place for children when they are online.”This isn’t the ICO’s first feud with Facebook.In October, it fined the social network £500,000 ($654,152) for breaches of data protection law. An investigation found that, between 2007 and 2014, Facebook “unfairly” processed users’ personal information by allowing app developers access without informed consent.More on Geek.com:Facebook ‘Likes’ Speak Louder Than WordsStudy: Children, Not Adults, Easily Influenced by RobotsSophia the Robot Has a Cute Little Sister That Teaches Kids to Codelast_img read more

AG and supreme court president cross swords at House Updated

first_imgBy George Psyllides and Evie AndreouHeated exchanges between former friends, the attorney-general and the president of the supreme court, marked Wednesday’s parliamentary discussion on recent revelations within the justice system, with the latter official also turning on the media accusing them of staging public trials and weakening confidence in the judiciary.Supreme court president Myron Nikolatos who, besides having to defend the integrity of the court, was also trying to fend off conflict of interest allegations concerning himself, said he was no longer friends with attorney-general Costas Clerides, a former supreme court judges himself, following a recent decision relating to the Bank of Cyprus.“The attorney-general also honoured me with his friendship for 45 years, 25 of which he had spent as a colleague,” Nikolatos told members of the House ethics committee, reading from a prepared statement. “Unfortunately, the friendship ended on his part as soon the Eliades-Bank of Cyprus decision was issued.”Clerides, who was sitting next to Nikolatos during the meeting, said it was offensive and sad for the president of the supreme court to say such a thing.He admitted that certain supreme court decisions on the matter had “brought about a rift”.But he said the distance was down to disappointment and that he had never suggested the case was lost because of relations between the judges and lawyers.The case that sparked the rift and precipitated the crisis concerned an appeal filed by former BoC CEO Andreas Eliades against his imprisonment for market manipulation.In a 2 to 1 decision, the three-bench supreme court found that Bank of Cyprus and Eliades, although they had made false representations about the financial status of the bank, did not do so with intent to manipulate the market but rather to ‘reassure’ shareholders.That decision was criticised by Clerides and the Securities and Exchange Commission.Later on, the attorney-general’s brother, Nicos Clerides, made a series of detailed claims that the courts are controlled by the Polyviou and Chrysafinis law firm, which represents BoC.He said all supreme court judges had a child at the law office that promoted the bank’s interests. He also revealed that Nikolatos’ sister and daughter had settled out of court two claims they had filed against BoC in relation with convertible bonds they had acquired.Nikolatos denied any wrongdoing, something which he repeated on Wednesday, warning that the affair has dealt a blow to public confidence in the judiciary.“The crisis in the judiciary, as a result of the unsubstantiated and unfair claims made recently, as well as the public trials in the mass media, have unfortunately weakened the judiciary with tragic consequences,” he said.“Calling for interference in the operation of justice and suggestions that we need foreigners to solve our problems constitute a danger for the independence of justice, with unforeseen consequences for Republic and the rule of law,” he added.In a 10-page document he submitted to the committee, Nikolatos said that the role of the media was very important but that some journalists were distorting facts.Public trials through the media, he said, were “unacceptable and unfair”.He said that all judges were acting in accordance with the constitution, laws and regulations of the supreme court, which are not only in line with the European Court of Human Rights case law but had preceded it.Nikolatos also said that he had been “shred to pieces” by the media because he gave an innocent vote in the Eliades case and wondered if the supreme court president could be treated that way, how would judges deal with cases before them.Clerides said that public debates cannot be prevented and do not constitute intimidation.He said that he too had been repeatedly criticised by the daily Politis and knew the reasons behind it, but he added that criticism must be accepted.Referring to Nicos Clerides’ complaints that the entire judiciary was controlled by Polyviou, Nikolatos said that the attorney-general himself had a ‘spiritual affiliation’ with Polyviou as they are god brothers. He added that Costas Clerides had been a judge in the Nicholas case in which Polyviou was a lawyer. He was referring to a 1998 case against Cyprus Airways filed by a former trainee pilot of the now defunct national carrier for unlawful dismissal and for which the European Court of Human Rights upheld an appeal last year filed against Cyprus by the pilot.The attorney-general replied that he did not know how to compare the conflict that Nikolatos was referring to with the case his brother had reported.He added that when he had attended the three-member court of appeal on the Nicholas case, there was no reference in the judicial institutions for having a  ‘spiritual affiliation’ with the lawyer. He added that a conflict was later established in that case concerning “in laws.”As a step to restore public confidence, Nikolatos said the supreme court planned to reinstate strict rules regarding recusals, which had been in place until 2006.Those rules banned participation of a judge even in cases where lawyers who were partners or employers of relatives appeared before a court.They were withdrawn however because it created problems in the smooth operation of the courts and the universally accepted impartiality of the judiciary.“Recusal of judges not only when relatives acted as lawyers, but also when all the lawyers in a firm where their relative was employed handled cases, would create serious problems to the courts’ daily operation,” Nikolatos said. “However, in light of the current state of affairs, it is seriously being discussed to make rules stricter, that is, as they were up until 2006, whatever the cost may be.”   You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.
