Tens of thousands uprooted by violence in northern Central African Republic

14 September 2007Increased violence has driven tens of thousands of people from their homes in the north of the Central African Republic (CAR) near the border with Chad, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said today. Increased violence has driven tens of thousands of people from their homes in the north of the Central African Republic (CAR) near the border with Chad, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said today.Some 12,000 people – the entire population of the area between the towns of Markounda and Silambi – have been uprooted, according to UN Humanitarian Coordinator for CAR Toby Lanzer.Civilians have been caught in fighting between various armed groups, including both State and non-State factions from CAR and neighbouring Chad, in recent months. Late last month, it was reported that the population had escaped the violence into the bush.The UN expressed concern for the 12,000 living along the Markounda-Silambi axis, approximately 500 kilometres north of the capital Bangui. In July, less than half of that number of people was displaced in the area, but now the entire population of the axis has been forced to flee their homes.“Conditions are abominable – marked by constant driving rain and night-time temperatures dipping to 15 degrees Celsius,” said Mr. Lanzer, who led a UN mission to the area from 7 to 10 September. “All this comes at the height of the lean season, when people are at the end of their ropes.”These internally displaced persons (IDPs) have no shelter, safe water, health care or basic necessities such as cooking utensils and soap, and a marked increase in acute respiratory infections has been reported among the displaced.“We are approaching the harvest in the coming weeks, and people need to get to their fields. If not, hunger will inevitably follow,” said UN Emergency Relief Coordinator John Holmes, who called for all parties in the country’s north to create an atmosphere conducive to the IDPs returning home.The UN and its partners’ $83 million appeal to assist those in need is only half funded, and Mr. Holmes, who also serves as Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, is considering allocating Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) resources to the CAR.Appealing for increased assistance, the UN highlighted the limited capacity of local authorities to protect and help those impacted.In the past 18 months, nearly 300,000 people have been uprooted from their homes because of conflict within the CAR’s borders, and problems in both Chad and the Darfur region of Sudan threaten to further destabilize the situation in northern CAR. read more

Do not let fixation with war derail fight against AIDS in Africa

Video of press briefing “It would be the ultimate triumph of conflict over the human imperative,” Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Envoy on HIV/AIDS in Africa, Stephen Lewis, said during a press briefing on the trip to southern Africa he took with James Morris, the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for the humanitarian crisis in Africa.Drawing attention to the report of the mission, which went to Lesotho, Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe in January, Mr. Lewis said it contained very strong and uncompromising language because there was no room for ambiguity- 40 million people worldwide, 30 million of them in Africa, were at risk due to the AIDS epidemic.”HIV/AIDS is the most fundamental underlying cause of the southern African crisis,” he stated, referring to the on-going debate about the role of drought in the food shortage. The findings during the mission, he said, conclusively support the new variant of a different kind of food shortage and agricultural decimation significantly caused by HIV/AIDS.Quoting from the report, Mr. Lewis said, “the apparent lack of urgency, leadership, direction and responsibility in the response of the United Nations, national governments, and the international community to the pandemic’s effects on women and girls is deeply troubling.”Mr. Lewis said he was “disconsolate” about the lack of follow-up or implementation to the gender policy discussions, saying, “Women are terrifyingly vulnerable.” He said he was also extremely concerned about the extraordinary proliferation of orphans in Africa and stressed that the focus must be on finding a solution to that problem. read more

Court approves First Nation challenge of Trans Mountain pipeline review

by The Canadian Press Posted Jul 11, 2014 7:14 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Court approves First Nation challenge of Trans Mountain pipeline review VANCOUVER – A Federal Court judge will let a British Columbia First Nation challenge the review process into the expansion of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain oil pipeline.The Tsleil-Waututh (sail-WHA’-tooth) Nation says if the challenge were successful, it could force the National Energy Board to restart its review process.Tsleil-Waututh Chief Maureen Thomas says government and the NEB have entered into an unlawful process that doesn’t respect the band’s rights and title.Thomas says the First Nation will use all legal means necessary to defend itself against what it calls the energy board’s one-sided review process for the expanded pipeline.The band claimed in court that the process can’t go ahead because it hasn’t been consulted about key decisions, including about the environmental assessment.If the expansion were approved, the twinned pipeline would carry about 890,000 barrels of bitumen to Metro Vancouver’s Burrard Inlet for transport by oil tankers. read more

Ban Security Council welcome South Sudan ceasefire agreement

Representatives of President Salva Kiir and former deputy president Riek Machar signed the agreement on cessation of hostilities, following three-weeks of talks mediated by the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa.Mr. Ban “calls on the parties to immediately implement this agreement,” his spokesperson said in a statement, which also congratulates IGAD on its “successful mediation.”The UN chief also underscored the need to continue without delay a national political dialogue to reach a comprehensive peace agreement, with the participation of all South Sudanese political and civil society representatives, including the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army (SPLM/A) detainees.The ceasefire seeks to ease a political dispute in the world’s youngest nation between President Kiir and his former deputy, Mr. Machar, who was removed from office in July of 2013 and later accused of attempting a coup. The tensions escalated on 15 December into a full-scale conflict between forces loyal to either side, driving 400,000 people from their homes and leaving twice as many in dire need of aid. The 15 members of the Security Council voiced their support for the agreement, welcoming the signing as a move towards comprehensive reconciliation which deals with root causes of the conflict. The Council also condemned violent attacks against civilians. “The Council Members, all of them, expressed support for UNMISS [UN Mission in South Sudan] and reiterated importance that all parties cooperate fully with UNMISS,” said Mahmoud Daifallah Mahmoud Hmoud, Senior Deputy Permanent Representative of Jordan, which holds this month’s rotating presidency of the Council. He spoke following a closed-door briefing, via video link from Juba, by Hilde Johnson, the head of UNMISS, and Ivan Simonovic, UN Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights, who just returned from an official visit to the country.In addition, he said the Council condemned “attacks and accusations mounted against UNMISS and called for all parties to stop such acts and cooperate with [the Mission] in the fulfilment of its mandate.” Echoing the need for cooperation, Mr. Ban reiterated his call for all parties to ensure freedom of movement for UNMISS, humanitarian workers and human rights monitors, and welcomed the Government of South Sudan’s reassurances of its full support to the Mission and commitment to honour its Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA).“The United Nations stands with the people of South Sudan and will continue to do everything within its means to protect civilians at risk and provide the necessary humanitarian assistance,” Mr. Ban said. Meanwhile, the UN Mission in the country today confirmed that its peacekeepers completed weapons searches in their eight main bases, where some 76,000 civilians continue to seek refuge.“The Mission is also seeking to work with national authorities to ensure that areas immediately surrounding its bases are free of weapons,” UN spokesperson Farhan Haq told journalists in New York, quoting the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS). The weapons searches come just days after UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon voiced alarm at the attempt on Sunday by senior members of South Sudan’s Government and military to forcibly enter into the UNMISS compound in Bor, Jonglei state.In the past 24 hours, the Mission carried out 186 military patrols and 62 police patrols in the capital Juba, and in Jonglei, Unity and Upper Nile states.There are reports of fighting continuing to occur “in multiple locations in the country”, the spokesperson said.In Bor, the Mission reported hearing gunfire yesterday evening from the north of its compound.The base there is making improvements to strengthen its perimeter walls at its protection site where some 10,000 civilians have been sheltering since fighting broke out about a month ago. According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), around 468,000 people are estimated to have been displaced within South Sudan since 15 December. An additional 83,900 have crossed into neighbouring countries, over half to Uganda, according to UN figures.In Malakal, in the north-eastern part of the country, UNMISS reports that its human rights division continues efforts to verify the accuracy of reported serious human rights violations, to collect evidence and document rights abuses and the violations of international humanitarian law that might have taken place.Reports and allegations relate to violations by both the so-called ‘White Army’ when it controlled the town, and by the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) after it regained the control of the town after 20 January.The Mission stresses that verification by its human rights team, at this stage, has been extremely difficult because of fighting and subsequent lack of access. UN Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights, Ivan Šimonovic, is due to brief the Security Council today on his recent visit to eth country. Hilde Johnson, the head of UNMISS, is expected to weigh in via video conference from Juba. read more

Shenhua and China Guodian merge to create a true giant

first_imgTwo Chinese state-owned enterprises (SOEs) have merged into an energy conglomerate with total assets worth $272.96 billion, says news agency Xinhua. The new company, China Energy Corporation, has become the world’s largest in coal mining, thermal power, renewable energy and coal-to-liquid conversion, according to the founding ceremony held Tuesday November 28.It was formed by the reorganisation of power generator China Guodian Corporation and coal miner Shenhua Group. “It is the biggest consolidation among central SOEs in recent years,” said Xiao Yaqing, chairman of the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission.Xiao expects the deal to improve corporate profitability and help coordinate coal and electricity markets. The merger is in line with the country’s effort to push restructuring in state-owned companies. During the past five years, 34 central SOEs were reorganised to improve competitiveness, according to Xiao. The total number of central SOEs has halved from 196 in 2003.Qiao Baoping, chairman of China Energy, said the company would focus on coal mining and power generation, while making more effort to eliminate excess capacity, and speed up its drive to go global.last_img read more

Save Bristol Bay Was The Message At A Joint Chamber Luncheon

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Proponents of the proposed Pebble Mine spoke about the impacts on Bristol Bay’s Fish and Wildlife Resources and the Kenai Peninsula Economy to a joint Kenai/Soldotna Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday. Sam Snyder, PhD: “This is a mine in a size and type that we haven’t seen before. It is perfectly situated at the headwaters of the worlds most productive sockeye salmon fishery. By putting a mine like this in a place like that I think we are inviting potential disaster. Disaster aside we are guaranteeing impacts that will have long term ramifications to the local fishery.”   Snyder: “I think the average Alaskan will assume that because the Army Corps. is putting it forward that it is mostly complete. You can comment on the website, but there are a lot of things missing from this draft EIS. So, the time extension, while nice, does not address many of the key deficiencies. But, it does give folks 30 more days to understand what’s in the EIS, What’s not in the EIS, and the effects it could have on Bristol Bay.”  Murkowski cited the draft’s length and complexity and need to ensure Alaskans can provide “meaningful feedback” on it. Recently, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers extended the public comment period for the draft environmental review of a proposed copper and gold mine in Bristol Bay region from 90 to 120 days. The comment period is now set to run through June 29. The corps had received comments arguing against an extension and comments urging more time. Notably, U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski last month requested extending the comment period to 120 days. Public comments submitted in person, online or by mail will help inform the final EIS, estimated for release in early 2020.last_img read more

Airbus Beluga Meet the Worlds Most Bizarre Aeroplane

first_imgLeading aircraft manufacturer Airbus recently introduced one of the world’s most eccentric airplanes, called “Beluga”, in the French city of Toulose. The cargo aircraft owes its name to its resemblance to the white Arctic whale.Beluga, officially known as Airbus A300-600ST, plays a crucial role in European Aviation, despite its quirky appearance.According to CNN, Airbus’ manufacturing centers are disseminated across Europe as a consortium, wherein each factory works and specializes in the finishing of a specific segment of an aircraft. There are five Belugas which are operated by Airbus that eventually link these plants and take the various airplane sections to the final production or assembly line, either in Hamburg or Toulouse.The five Belugas are nothing but Airbus A300-600 jets which have been modified to load, carry and transport bulk cargo. The topmost part of an Airbus A300-600 is cut and an extra fuselage section, similar to a bubble, is added to provide the airframe with unique and characteristic features.The maximum payload of a Beluga is 47 tons and the hold it generates consequently helps the airplane to transport oversized cargo, as well as aircraft parts. For instance, Beluga has the capacity to carry the wings of an A340 plane or the fuselage section of the newly made Airbus A350. On the contrary, the Beluga is not large enough to aid in transporting both the interior as well as the exterior parts of the A380 super jumbo.Belugas are, more often than not, hired and operated to move satellites, helicopters and art-works at times.Beluga XL in the PipelineBeluga XL, a sequel to the Beluga, is set to be manufactured by Airbus sooner or later. This make, again, would certainly prove to be a revelation in global aviation.Beluga XL is an important part of the “Fly 10000 Program” initiated by Airbus, in order to support and strengthen the company’s infrastructure and its overall production. As the name suggests, Beluga XL is expected to feature a relatively longer range in space & size, and stronger capacity to withstand and transport bulkier payloads.If the project goes through, it would primarily aim at landing the aircraft on short run-ways, much more effortlessly than the Beluga.last_img read more

Why Romantic Poet Lord Byron is Considered a Hero of Greek Independence

first_imgWith a talent for writing poetry, a deformity to his right leg that affected his character, and an unstoppable appetite for women and debauchery, George Gordon Lord Byron stands out as an icon of the Romantic movement in literature. He was born in London, in 1788 and his best-known work, widely read in schools to date, includes the Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage.Portrait of Lord Byron.On the lesser known side of Byron’s life, he was as well involved in politics. He came from a well-off family, and his privileged position enabled him to serve terms in the House of Lords. But more notably, he actively participated in the Greek War of Independence to end the Ottoman rule there, offering both financial and logistical support. It would also be in Greece, the country which still praises him as a hero, where Lord Byron died in 1824.Byron’s writing and political career began at quite an early age. He took up his seat in the House of Lords by the time he was 21, and was already past his first unreturned love from Marcy Chaworth — his cousin, who eventually inspired him to pen some of his early erotically-pumped poetry. He was also a student at Cambridge, but better remembered for taking a keen interest in gambling and sex.Fore-edge painting of Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage by Lord Byron, 1812.At 22, Byron left Britain and began an extensive voyage around the Mediterranean. It was this journey that inspired Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, which revolves around a typical theme and setting of the Romanticism days: a young man who is fascinated by nature and his exploration of foreign countries.Byron eventually reached Greece in 1809. He truly loved the Balkans, having previously traveled in Albania, but Greece he liked the most. In the country known as the cradle of civilization, Byron visited many monumental, ancient sites. He also became acquainted with the Greek cause, well enough that his later contributions will forever remain in the annals of Greek history.Lord Byron painted by Thomas Phillips in 1813. Venizelos Mansion, Athens (the British Ambassador’s residence).During this first stay in Greece, Byron also found a love interest in the daughter of the British consul and dedicated her the poem Daughter of Athens. The British poet postponed his departure as much as he could, and returned to the country again and again.In 1812, Byron wrote yet another poem in Greece — The Course of Minerva. Unlike the previous one, this one was more politically charged. It was his way to condemn Lord Elgin, whom he despised for dismantling and administrating the shipping of almost half of the Parthenon sculptures to Britain. One half of those marbles are still in London, housed in the British Museum. The remainder is displayed in the Acropolis Museum in Athens.Statue of Lord Byron in Athens.Byron was already a very successful poet by then, making lots of money, most of which if he didn’t spend on travel but on women. He had some attempts to settle for a more family-orientated life, as his political career dictated, but this did not go so well.Byron’s half-sister Augusta carried a daughter in 1814, with many speculating the child was his. The year after that, he wedded Annabella Milbanke, who gave birth to the lustful poet’s only legitimate daughter. Milbanke left Byron in 1816, after which he freely proceeded with his pleasure-seeking.Such way of life more affected Byron’s reputation to the point he self-exiled from Britain in the spring of 1816, never coming back. That summer he spent at the Lake Geneva with Percy and Mary Shelley.The reception of Lord Byron at Missolonghi.It was the so-called “Year without Summer” when heavy rain poured down all summer in Europe, flooding the continent’s biggest rivers and destroying crops. Inspired by the weather, the writers spent hours telling each other scary stories, the event eventually leading Mary Shelley to devise her infamous fantasy character — Frankenstein’s Monster.During his stay there, Byron became involved with Claire Clairmont, Mary’s half-sister, who also resided in the house and with whom he had yet another daughter. From Switzerland Byron moved to Italy, and eventually to Greece after he was asked in 1823 to actively join the Greek struggle against the Ottomans.Lord Byron on His Deathbed by Joseph Denis Odevaere.At this point, Byron would invest large amounts of his own fortune to fund the maintenance of Greek warships and he even launched his own fighting unit. He first stayed on the island of Cephalonia but eventually relocated to Missolonghi, a town on the west coast of mainland Greece which heavily suffered in the war. It was here that the poet died.In the time preceding to his death, Lord Byron collaborated with Alexandros Mavrokordatos, a prominent leader of the Greek revolutionary movement. Byron also established himself as a link between the Greek revolutionaries and the London Philhellenic Committee, a group of British philhellenes who channeled more money to support the Greek military.Statue of Lord Byron in Athens. Photo by Templar52Within the circle of Greek revolutionaries, things were not going so well, however. Byron would soon voice his concerns that some of the Greek leaders spent the fundraised money not for the purposes of liberation but for other political means.Things apparently got heated between the various rebel Greek factions, since the poet wrote to a close friend in September 1823 that “the Greeks seem to be at a greater danger among them, rather than from the enemy’s attacks.”The war concluded in 1830, effectively helping Greece to declare independence — but by that time its faithful helper, Lord Byron was long gone.Early on in 1824, amid all the stress to keep things together, Byron succumbed to an illness. It took only a few months for the disease to extinguish all life from him. He passed away in Missolonghi, on April 19, 1824, shortly after his 36th birthday. His early death was grieved both in Greece and Britain. His remains were returned to Britain where he was laid to rest in Nottinghamshire.Read another story from us: The Cross-Dressing French Aristocrat Who Became an Elite Royal SpyBesides his contribution to the Greek cause, Lord Byron is also noted for expressing his support for the independence of Ireland, both in poetry and political speeches. On one occasion he also supported the independence of India, albeit his stances on these two matters were not so popular back in his day. Before fighting for Greece, Lord Byron also actively joined the liberation movement in Italy which eventually led to the birth of the Kingdom of Italy in 1861.last_img read more

Cyprus marks 45 years since the coup

first_imgSirens sounded around the island at 8.20 on Monday morning to mark 45 years since the coup by the Greek military junta then ruling Greece, that toppled Cyprus President Archbishop Makarios, subsequently leading to the invasion.The House of Representatives will hold a special session to denounce the coup and the Turkish invasion and honour those who died during the events.Earlier, a memorial service took place at the church of Constantinou and Elenis in the presence of the Finance Minister Harris Georgiades, standing in for President Nicos Anastasiades, political party leaders, government officials and other dignitaries, led by Archbishop Chrysostomos.Wreaths will be laid at the tombs of those killed. Political parties will also hold special events in various towns to commemorate the dead and condemn the twin crime against Cyprus.In 1967, a military junta seized power in Greece. The relationship between that regime and President Makarios of Cyprus was tense from the outset and became increasingly strained.The late president appeared convinced that the Athens junta was involved in efforts to undermine his authority and policies through extremist underground organisations in Cyprus conspiring against his government and his life.On July 15, 1974, the Greek military junta and its Greek Cypriot collaborators carried out a coup against Makarios.Makarios had just returned to the presidential palace in Nicosia from his weekend retreat in Troodos. As the coup was unfolding in central Nicosia, the president was meeting with a group of Greek children from Egypt.As shooting became heavy and the presidential palace was attacked by the National Guard, Makarios protected the children and then escaped from an unguarded passage in the west side. He fled to Kykkos Monastery and then to Paphos. While state radio announced his death, Makarios addressed the people from a local radio station in Paphos, saying “You know this voice… I am Makarios and I am alive…” encouraging them to resist the military junta.Makarios, the first president of the Republic of Cyprus, fled the country as the coupist forces took control. He boarded a British military aircraft and went to London via Malta, where on July 17 he met with British Prime Minister Harold Wilson and Foreign Secretary James Callaghan.The United States called for support for the independence of Cyprus and urged all states to do likewise, while Secretary of State Henry Kissinger rejected a proposal to support the ousted Makarios. From London he went to New York to address the United Nations, urging the international community to help restore legality on the island of Cyprus.The coup provided Turkey with a pretext to launch an invasion against the island. In a two-phase military intervention in July and August, Turkish troops advanced and occupied 36.2 per cent of the territory of the Republic and expelled about 200,000 Greek Cypriots from their homes. Another 20,000 Greek Cypriots, who remained in the occupied areas, have dwindled to fewer than 500 Greek Cypriots in the north today.Ankara said its military invasion was to offer security to the Turkish Cypriot population on the island.You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityWe protect our home with earthquake insuranceCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoSUVs | Search AdsThese SUVs Will Take Your Breath Away.
