UN extends international security force as Afghan violence rises

9 October 2009The Security Council has called on Governments to strengthen the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan in the face of increased threats posed by the Taliban, Al-Qaida and other armed groups, unanimously extending the mission for another year. ISAF, which now stands at 67,700 troops on the ground from 42 contributing countries, was established after United States-led forces ousted the Taliban regime in late 2001 to help the then-interim authorities maintain security across nation. The resolution, passed yesterday evening by the Security Council, recognized “the need to further strengthen ISAF to meet all its operational requirements, and in this regard calls upon Member States to contribute personnel, equipment and other resources.”Voicing strong concern over the rise in terrorism and drug-trafficking in the South Asian country, the 15-member body underscored the importance of reinforcing the Afghan security forces to establish the rule of law throughout the country, and encouraged ISAF and its partners to support the planned expansion of the national army and police.The Council noted in resolution 1890 (2009) the tightening link between terrorist groups to criminals involved in the narcotics trade, and its threat to the local population, including children, national security forces and international military and civilian personnel. The UN body also expressed serious concern over the high number of civilian deaths in the conflict, condemning all attacks, including Improvised Explosive Device (IED) attacks, suicide bombings and abductions, as well as the use of human shields by the Taliban, Al-Qaida and other extremist groups.In addition, the Security Council deplored the targeting of Afghan and international forces, with its damaging effect on the stabilization, reconstruction and development efforts in Afghanistan.Recognizing measures taken to minimize the risk of civilian casualties, the Council welcomed ISAF’s plans to continue efforts to protect the Afghan population as a central element of its mission, and noted the importance of reviewing tactics and procedures, as well as conducting investigations in cooperation with the Government in cases where civilian casualties have occurred and when the Afghan Government finds these joint investigations appropriate.The Security Council resolution underscored the need for the Government to intensify efforts to fight corruption, promote transparency and increase its accountability, and stressed the central and impartial role the United Nations plays in promoting peace and stability in Afghanistan.ISAF’s twelve-month extension period begins on 13 October. read more

UN provides emergency help to Palestinian refugees displaced by fighting in Syria

19 August 2011The United Nations is providing emergency assistance to some of the thousands of Palestinian refugees who have had to flee their homes in Syria in recent days amid mounting international concern at the violent crackdown by Government forces against civilian protesters. Some 7,500 refugees across Syria have been displaced by the fighting, the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) reported today. The agency said it is giving cash grants for food, medicine and temporary accommodation to about 6,000 people.About 5,500 people are displaced from a refugee camp in Latakia, which came under sustained assault from Syrian Government forces last weekend. Dozens of people in the port city are reported to have been killed, and UN officials have voiced grave concern about the situation.UNRWA spokesperson Chris Gunness said that “many people around the world were shocked by the images of unarmed refugees being shot at as they fled from their homes, amid the firing on their refugee camp.”Mr. Gunness said the refugees remain too frightened to return to their homes in the camp, which is located in the El Ramel district.“UNRWA has not had access – draw your own conclusions about what that means about the security situation there and the state of the camp,” he said, adding that many of the displaced, “particularly the children and women, are traumatized and in a poor condition.”Mr. Gunness paid tribute to local UNRWA staff who, with the cooperation of authorities in both Latakia and the capital, Damascus, have established a temporary office in Latakia outside the camp so that they can continue to provide essential services to the refugees.The agency is also assisting about 220 refugees in Homs, another 190 people in the Yarmouk camp in Damascus, and “a small but growing number of people” in Aleppo, Syria’s most populous city.Around half a million Palestinian refugees in Syria are registered with UNRWA, which operates in Jordan, Lebanon, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, in addition to Syria.Meanwhile, on Monday the Human Rights Council will hold a special session in Geneva to discuss the latest developments and yesterday top UN officials briefed the Security Council about the crackdown, which could amount to crimes against humanity, according to a fact-finding mission by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).In a statement, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, Prosecutor for the International Criminal Court (ICC), said that while his office has received allegations of crimes against humanity, it has no jurisdiction to investigate because Syria is not a party to the statute setting up the court.“The UN Security Council, however, has the authority to refer the situation in Syria to the ICC if it considers that justice will contribute to establishing peace and security in Syria,” he said. read more

Emails link Enron to last minute power contract changes

by Posted Aug 8, 2016 7:53 am MDT Emails link Enron to “last minute” power contract changes More light is being shed on an ‘out clause’ contained in power provider agreements in Alberta.Some emails associated with the contract which dates back to 2000 have been leaked.At the heart of a lawsuit launched by the province was the insertion of the words “more unprofitable” on the power purchase agreements the Alberta government announced as it exited a regulated market.Emails provided news outlets suggest it was added at the last minute, engineered by now defunct Enron.Power providers are using the clause to walk away from contracts; a move that could cost taxpayers $2-billion.The Notley Government argues the change was done without public consultation making it illegal.The matter is scheduled to head to court in November.

Finland election result Prime ministers party is the biggest loser as results

Archbishop Demetrios calls for US assistance for Ecumenical Patriarch

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Greek Orthodox Church’s senior cleric in the USA has sent a letter to American President Barack Obama, as well as other high-ranking Washington officials, in a bid to draw attention to the treatment of Ecumenical Patriarch Vartholomaios by Turkey.Archbishop of America Demetrios wrote just before Christmas Day to US President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the leader of the Democrats in the Senate, Harry Reid, to ask for their help in protecting the patriarch.The letters also ask for help in ensuring that the rights of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Istanbul to continue operating and performing its mission are upheld.Demetrios wrote the letters after Ankara expressed its displeasure at comments made by Vartholomaios in an interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes” program, during which the patriarch complained that his treatment by Turkish authorities often left him feeling “crucified” and “like a second-class citizen.”Vartholomaios’s choice of words did not please Ankara.“We regard the use of the crucifixion analogy as extremely unfortunate… I would like to see this as a slip of the tongue,” said Turkey’s foreign minister, Ahmet Davutoglu. “We cannot accept comparisons that we do not deserve.”The minister rejected criticism that Turkey was discriminating against its citizens based on their religion.Among other things, Vartholomaios has campaigned for the reopening of the Orthodox seminary on the island of Halki following its closure by Turkish authorities in 1971.“[The Turkish government] would be happy to see the Patriarchate extinguished or moving abroad, but our belief is that it will never happen,” Vartholomaios told CBS.“This is the continuation of Jerusalem and for us an equally holy and sacred land. We prefer to stay here, even crucified sometimes.”last_img read more

62 feel unjustified bonuses cause resentment among staff

first_imgAlmost two thirds (62%) of UK finance professional respondents feel that unjustified bonuses cause resentment among colleagues, according to research by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA).The research, which surveyed 6,500 finance professionals globally, also found that 35% of UK respondents feel that bonuses for top earners are undeserved.The research also found:48% of respondents that work for an organisation that operates a bonus scheme believe that bonuses reward short-term performance at the expense of long-term goals.97% of respondents based in the north east of England feel that unjustified bonuses cause resentment among colleagues.39% of respondents aged between 50 and 54 feel that bonuses are unjustified.78% of respondents based in London work for an organisation that operates a bonus scheme, compared to 47% in Northern Ireland, and 46% in the north east.29% of UK respondents that receive bonuses say that their bonus has the potential to reach 20% of their annual salary.19% of female respondents feel that their bonus might reach a fifth of their annual salary, compared to 34% of male respondents.Tony Manwaring, executive vice-president, external affairs at CIMA, said: “Boards need to think carefully about their bonus structure and this applies to all levels within the business. Current schemes often only focus on ‘hard indicators’ such as short-term revenue, but they should also seek to reward evidence the employee is helping the organisation plan and build for the long term. As a bare minimum, they need to ensure incentives are rooted in a firm understanding of the business model and are aligned to long-term business success.”Professor Wim A Van der Stede, professor of accounting and financial management at CIMA, added: “Designing effective incentive systems is hard, yet incentives that may be fair may not look fair; a challenge that touches on the issue of transparency as well as the question of both how and how much to incentivise.”last_img read more

Little Monsters cultivates kids creativity

first_img“Little Monsters” may sound like a funny name, perhaps a bad translation, but that is the official title of a new “creative club” designed for children. The name is in English, but the facility caters primarily to Spanish-speaking children up to seven years old.The extracurricular program opened its doors in San Rafael de Escazú on April 6. Its mission: To foster creativity.“Little Monsters was born of the need for an early childhood creative program and is inspired by innovative processes within and outside [formal] education,” said founder Silvia Hidalgo Mora, a publicist and marketing professional, in an official release.Taking inspiration from the enchanted forests of storybooks, the 250-square-meter space is like a kindergarten, indoor playground, and art studio rolled into one. Different sections are modeled on different outdoor objects, like “The Nest,” “The Cocoon,” and “The Tree House.” In order to participate, parents enroll their kids as “members” of the Little Monsters club. Courtesy of RedCulturaHidalgo and her stable of instructors plan to cultivate their kids’ interest in art, music, science, and theater, using daily activities combined with specialized workshops. The first two talleres have dreamy titles but offer serious instruction: “Words Dancing on Paper” is a literacy and storytelling workshop, and “Painting with Sounds” introduces kids to making music. Special guests include pastry chef Larissa Mesén, magician Alejandro Navas, and actor-director Mauricio Astorga. Courtesy of Little Monsters“Creativity teaches each child to appreciate the talents they possess and rely on their ability to create new knowledge,” opined Hidalgo. “In the creative process, the child is the generator of solutions, and therefore creativity becomes a power to face any challenge laid before him.”Little Monsters is located in Plaza Tempo, San Rafael de Escazú.

AP Exclusive Syrian rebels seize base arms trove

first_imgAssociated PressBASE OF THE 46TH REGIMENT, Syria (AP) – After a nearly two-month siege, Syrian rebels overwhelmed a large military base in the north of the country and made off with tanks, armored vehicles and truckloads of munitions that rebel leaders say will give them a boost in the fight against President Bashar Assad’s army.The rebel capture of the base of the Syrian army’s 46th Regiment is a sharp blow to the government’s efforts to roll back rebels gains and shows a rising level of organization among opposition forces. Key to the body’s success will be its ability to build ties with the disparate rebel groups fighting inside Syria. Many rebel leaders say they don’t recognize the new body, and a group of extremist Islamist factions on Monday rejected it, announcing that they had formed an “Islamic state” in Aleppo.Anti-regime activists say nearly 40,000 people have been killed since Syria’s crisis started 20 months ago.___Associated Press write Elizabeth Kennedy contributed reporting from Beirut, Lebanon.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Rebel fighters say that weapons seized in such battles have been essential to their transformation from ragtag brigades into forces capable of challenging Assad’s professional army. Cross-border arms smuggling from Turkey and Iraq has also played a role, although the most common complaint among rebel fighters is that they lack ammunition and heavy weapons, munitions and anti-aircraft weapons to fight Assad’s air force.It is unclear how many government bases the rebels have overrun during the 20-month conflict, mostly because they rarely try to hold captured facilities. Staying in the captured bases would make them sitting ducks for regime airstrikes.“Their strategy is to hit and run,” said Elias Hanna, a retired Lebanese army general and Beirut-based strategic analyst. “They’re trying to hurt the regime where it hurts by bisecting and compartmentalizing Syria in order to dilute the regime’s power.”The 46th Regiment was a major pillar of the government’s force near the northern city of Aleppo, Syria’s economic hub, and its fall cuts a major supply line to the regime’s army, Hanna said. Government forces have been battling rebels for months over control of Aleppo. New Year’s resolution: don’t spend another year in a kitchen you don’t like It could not be determined how or when the soldiers had been killed.The final assault that took the base came after more than 50 days of siege that left the soldiers inside demoralized, according to fighters who took part.Working together and communicating by radio, a number of different rebels groups divided up the area surrounding the base and each cut the regime’s supply lines, said Abdullah Qadi, a rebel field commander. Over the course of the siege, dozens of soldiers defected, some telling the rebels that those inside were short of food, Qadi said.The rebels decided to attack Saturday afternoon when they felt the soldiers inside were weak and the rebels had enough ammunition to finish the battle, Qadi said. The battle was over by nightfall on Sunday. Seven rebel fighters were killed in the battle, said al-Faj of the rebels’ Joint Command. Other rebel leaders gave similar numbers.It remains unclear how many soldiers remained in the base when the rebels launched their attack and what happened to them.Al-Faj said all soldiers inside were either killed or captured. He said he didn’t know how many were killed, but that the rebels had taken about 50 prisoners, all of whom would be tried in a rebel court. Aside from the 20 prisoners seen at the rebel’s Bab al-Hawa base, the AP was unable to see any other captured soldiers. “It’s a tactical turning point that may lead to a strategic shift,” he said.At the 46th Regiment’s base, about 25 kilometers (15 miles) west of Aleppo, the main three-story command building showed signs of the battle _ its walls punctured apparently from rebel rocket attacks. The smaller barracks buildings scattered around the compound, about 2.6 square kilometers (1 square mile) in size, had been looted, with mattresses overturned. A number of buildings had been torched.Reporters from The Associated Press who visited the base late Monday saw no trace of the government troops who had been defending it _ other than the dead bodies of seven soldiers.Two of them, in camouflage uniforms, lay outside the command building. One of them was missing his head, apparently blown off in an explosion.The rest were in a nearby clinic. Four dead soldiers were on stretchers set on the floor, one with a large gash in his arm, another with what appeared to be a large shrapnel hole in the back of his head. The last lay on a gurney in another room, his arms and legs bandaged, a bullet hole in his cheek and a splatter of blood on the wall and ceiling behind him as if he had been shot where he lay. Comments   Share   The Syrian government does not respond to requests for comment on military affairs and said nothing about the base’s capture. It says the rebels are terrorists backed by foreign powers that seek to destroy the country.Disorganization has plagued the Syrian opposition since the start of the anti-Assad uprising in March 2011, with exile groups pleading for international help even when they have no control over those fighting inside of Syria.A newly formed Syrian opposition coalition received a boost Tuesday, when Britain officially recognized it as the sole representative of the Syrian people.The National Coalition of the Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces was formed in the Gulf nation of Qatar on Oct. 11 under pressure from the United States for a stronger, more united opposition body to serve as a counterweight to more extremist forces.British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Tuesday the body’s members gave assurances to be a “moderate political force committed to democracy” and that the West must “support them and deny space to extremist groups.”The United States and the European Union have both spoken well of the body but stopped short of offering it full recognition.

Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project More important than the base’s fall, however, are the weapons the rebels found inside.At a rebel base where the much of the haul was taken after the weekend victory, rebel fighters unloaded half a dozen large trucks piled high with green boxes full of mortars, artillery shells, rockets and rifles taken from the base. Parked nearby were five tanks, two armored vehicles, two rocket launchers and two heavy-caliber artillery cannons.Around 20 Syrian soldiers captured in the battle were put to work carrying munitions boxes, barefoot and stripped to the waist. Rebels refused to let reporters talk to them or see where they were being held.“There has never been a battle before with this much booty,” said Gen. Ahmad al-Faj of the rebels Joint Command, a grouping of rebel brigades that was involved in the siege. Speaking on Monday at the rebel base, set up in a former customs office at Syria’s Bab al-Hawa border crossing with Turkey, he said the haul would be distributed among the brigades.For months, Syria’s rebels have gradually been destroying government checkpoints and taking over towns in the northern provinces of Idlib and Aleppo along the Turkish border. 4 must play golf courses in Arizonalast_img read more

New Zealand fails to deliver promised budget surplus

first_img Top Stories Arizona families, Arizona farms: A legacy of tradition embracing animal care and comfort through modern technology English said the failure to reach surplus was due to inflation of just 0.1 percent, which was much lower than forecast. He said that was good news for consumers, who weren’t facing price increases, but also meant tax revenue was lower than forecast.Credit rating agency Standard & Poor’s said the budget wouldn’t have any immediate impact on New Zealand’s AA sovereign credit rating. S&P credit analyst Craig Michaels said returning to surplus a little later than planned didn’t pose a big problem.“The real economy is looking pretty rosy, really,” he said, though high levels of private borrowing continued to constrain New Zealand’s rating.New Zealand’s agriculture-reliant economy has been growing at a healthy annual clip of 3.3 percent. The unemployment rate is 5.8 percent, and immigration has hit all-time highs this year.But the nation of 4.5 million people faces a number of economic challenges which its Treasury predicts will drag growth lower.Chief among those are slowing economies in its largest export markets, China and Australia. The price for New Zealand’s crucial milk exports has slumped by more than 50 percent since the beginning of last year. The New Zealand economy has performed better over recent years than most developed nations. The government’s net debt is also lower than in many countries, equivalent to about 26 percent of the economy.The center-right government led by Prime Minister John Key last year won a third three-year term in office in large part on the merits of its economic performance.Copyright © The Associated Press.

That has prompted the central bank to tighten loan requirements and the government to tighten its tax policy on home sales.The government announced in the budget it also plans to release some of the unused land it owns in Auckland for housing developments, a measure which it says could ease price pressure by allowing thousands of new homes to be built.Under the budget provisions, international tourists will also need to pay a little more to visit. A new border levy effective next year would charge people who arrive in the country about NZ$16 and those leaving about NZ$6. When added to existing charges, tourists would need to pay about NZ$36 for a round trip.One surprise in the budget was the extent of relief promised for low-income families. The government plans to spend an extra NZ$790 million on boosting welfare payments and childcare support over four years, while also increasing the work obligations on welfare recipients.The budget also included NZ$11 million to try and boost numbers of the country’s famous flightless bird, the kiwi. The wild kiwi population has been declining by about 2 percent each year due to predators such as stoats and ferrets.center_img Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Sponsored Stories 4 sleep positions for men and what they mean New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — New Zealand’s government on Thursday blamed low inflation for its failure to deliver a promised budget surplus this year but said it remains on target to get its books into the black next year.New Zealand hoped to become one of the first developed nations to return to a surplus following the 2008 global financial crisis. That would allow it to begin repaying debt.But when Finance Minister Bill English delivered his annual budget Thursday, the planned surplus had evaporated into a projected deficit of 684 million New Zealand dollars ($501 million) for the year ending June.
