Trilingual human rights action plan goes online

As many of these policies and laws are however yet to be implemented, it was decided to include in the Human Rights Action Plan specific areas covered by these policies or proposed laws, in addition to mentioning the implementation of these policies and laws as a Goal/Issue/Activity.“The commitment of the Government of Sri Lanka towards the full realization and guaranteeing of Human Rights was further manifested when in 2008, a Committee was appointed to give effect to proposals in Mahinda Chinthana, for the inclusion of a comprehensive Bill of the Rights into the Constitution. A Draft Bill of Rights was thereafter formulated which is being deliberated by stakeholders, with a view to its incorporation. The National Action Plan aims at giving teeth to these existing mechanisms and further strengthening the current regime, in order that they comply with modern trends of enforcing them, to achieve the efficacy of there full amplitude. The priority area on Civil and Political Rights amply sets out those objectives,” the National Action Plan says on the website. (Colombo Gazette) The Action Plan is in eight parts representing the eight thematic areas.  They are each in the form of a matrix consisting of Focus Area, Goal, Issue, Activities, Key Performance Indicators, Timeframe and Key Responsible Agencies. The action plan, available on http://www.hractionplan.gov.lk, follows a commitment given to the UN Human Rights Council in 2008. The aim in general was to include priority areas and not all areas for action, as the Plan is time bound and could not realistically cover every issue which may need to be addressed.Where national policies or plans of action exist in relation to a particular area, these have been taken into account and mentioned where appropriate. The government has made available the National Human Rights Action Plan in all three languages online, officials said today.The action plan covers a wide area including Civil and Political Rights, Economic Social and Cultural Rights, Prevention of Torture, Rights of Women, Labour Rights, Migrant Workers, Children and Internally Displaced Persons (IDP). read more

Womens Basketball Ohio State ends season with 7161 loss to Morehead State

Ohio State freshman guard Janai Crooms (3) dribbles the ball up court in the first half of the game against Rutgers on March 3. Ohio State lost 66-56. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorThe Ohio State women’s basketball team (14-14, 10-8 Big Ten) lost in the first round of the WNIT tournament 71-61 to  Morehead State (23-10, 13-5 Ohio Valley) 71-61. In their second appearance in the WNIT in program history, the Buckeyes struggled to keep up with the Eagles, who outscored Ohio State 46-30 in the second half.Freshman forward Dorka Juhasz led the team with 15 points and 10 rebounds, notching her 12th double double of the season right before rolling her ankle and leaving the court late in the fourth quarter.Redshirt senior forward Makayla Waterman, usually averaging 7.8 points per game, only added two points in 19 minutes of playing time, making 1-of-4 from the field. “It was definitely a tough game to go out to, I think that was a pretty bad game for us,” Waterman said. The Buckeyes tried to play catch up in the fourth quarter, but the Eagles 3-point shooting seemed to be unstoppable, making 7-of-14 in the second half. Morehead State started the game hot, coming out to a quick 10-4 lead. However, after a timeout, the Buckeyes answered with an 11-0 run.“I thought in the first half we had a chance to stretch out the lead and really impose our will on the game,”Ohio State  head coach Kevin McGuff said. The first half was the story of turnovers for both the Buckeyes and the Eagles. Both teams had nine turnovers by the end of the half. The Buckeyes made the most out of those turnovers, making 11 points off of turnovers while the Eagles only had five. After a 3-point make by freshman guard Janai Crooms, the Buckeyes took the lead and held it out until the end of the first half, leaving with a 31-25 lead. But Morehead State answered with three 3-point shots late in the third quarter by redshirt junior guard Aliyah Jeune that left the Eagles bench electrified with excitement and gave them back in the lead 48-45. Crooms finished the game with 13 points, making 5-of-10 from the field, but recorded eight of Ohio State’s 17  turnovers in the 10-point loss. Holding a three-point lead heading into the fourth quarter, Morehead State outscored Ohio State 23-14 in the fourth quarter, leading to a 10-point victory for the Eagles. In the second half, Ohio State shot 40 percent from the field, but made 2-of-10 from deep. In what ended Ohio State’s season, McGuff said his team did not play consistently enough to sustain the first-half lead or even stretch it out. “We weren’t the more physical team and we were going to need to be that to win tonight and we weren’t,” McGuff said. read more

When Can We Expect to See One Punch Man Season 2

first_imgStay on target We’ve all been waiting quite a while for the latest season of everyone’s favorite superhero-themed anime to drop — that’s One Punch Man, not My Hero Academia for now, everyone — but we still don’t know a whole lot about when we can expect Season 2 to debut. We see plenty of awesome illustrations online courtesy of One Punch Man’s illustrator, and we can always read the manga, but when can we finally see the anime series return? Here’s what we know so far.To begin with, there isn’t an official release date for season 2 of One Punch Man out there yet, but there was a decent start not too long ago. Previously, Viz Media announced that the company had indeed secured rights for One Punch Man 2. So at the very least we’re on the right track, and we know we’re getting an English dub/translation of the second season in the near future. That means we could potentially get some sort of official announcement for when the second season will make its debut any time shortly, but we still aren’t sure at this juncture when.Announcement: Saitama’s back! VIZ is set to bring One-Punch Man Season 2 to fans. We’re not pulling any punches! pic.twitter.com/dlrdqq6wvK— VIZ @ AX Booth #2206 (@VIZMedia) May 16, 2018AdChoices广告Previously, the originally One Punch Man’s debut date was announced during Anime Japan, and the new Anime Japan convention this year is occurring this August. It’s possible we could hear an announcement on August 12, when the expo is taking place. We’ve heard that a special event called “One Punch Man Maji Gakuensai” is taking place there, where we’ll likely get a new trailer and some sort of date, even if it’s just a month, to look forward to. With all the signs out there pointing to new content in the future, we’ll probably see a new season of One Punch Man by 2019 — that’s a fair estimate, anyway.Are you counting down the days until we get more Saitama and crew?Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. ‘One Punch Man’ Get A Video Game, Probably Has More Punches11 Manga Series That Should Never Be Live Action Movies last_img read more

An Edgy Readers Digest It May Be Here Already

first_imgReader’s Digest was nominated for a National Magazine Award—its first in 20 years. Ahead of Thursday night’s presentation, FOLIO: spoke with Peggy Northrop, Reader’s Digest’s editor-in-chief, about the nomination, what it means, and what the future holds for the magazine.FOLIO:: This is the first nomination for Reader’s Digest in a long time. Two questions: What took so long? And what do you attribute this to?Northrop: I don’t like to say people weren’t paying attention to the magazine, but you go through cycles of popularity. We made some changes editorially, added a lot of layers. We asked ourselves, “What can we do with the way we package stories?”  And I think, suddenly, Reader’s Digest, in a revived form, captured the attention of readers and voters. On the editorial side, I’ve learned to never get complacent. We do a lot of testing, a lot of listening to our readers. We were a pioneer in user-generated content—getting our jokes from readers. And we’re investing a lot (in the Web and social media). I think the key is in the execution, and we’re trying to execute with religious fervor.FOLIO:: The first quarter was brutal for a lot of magazine publishers. What has been your approach so far this year, and what is it going into the second half?Northrop: In the first quarter we were down only 4 percent (in ad pages). That’s not usually something to brag about, but it’s better than others in the industry. There is a downside, of course. My newsstand really sucks, to be honest. FOLIO:: How do you keep editorial fresh/relevant—dare I say, even edgy—without alienating older readers?Northrop: It’s not easy. I wanted the magazine’s covers to reflect what’s inside. Like our health coverage. When I got here, I took celebrities off the cover. It did not work. But we’ve taken some calculated risks. In April, for instance, we did a (relatively) controversial about breast cancer. The cover shows a woman doing a breast exam.FOLIO:: How do you keep your staff motivated/inspired with all the layoffs going on, both at RDA and the industry at large?Northrop: I think it starts with communication. I’m grateful we were able to do layoffs swiftly—they were done within a day. So we could go back to our staffs and say “Here’s what’s happening, here’s why—it’s tough, but we all have to keep working hard.” It was like ripping a band-aid. Other publishers haven’t been able to do it this way. But, since it’s happening all over the industry, it’s not like I need to do a whole lot of cheerleading. I also communicate the positives—laying out what success will look like in six to 12 months. It’s kind of like “Management 101” but getting back to the basics in a time like this is a good thing.FOLIO::  Will the print form of Reader’s Digest exist in five years?Northrop: Yes. You know, you have to look at our history. TV didn’t kill the radio. It made it different. The Internet did not kill print. I believe we will have a print edition—the great thing about magazines, and the size of our magazine in particular: It’s imminently portable. Readers tell us that all the time. I get letters from soldiers who tell me that the magazine fits “in my cargo pants in a helicopter.”last_img read more

Medical Equipment Contract Causes Headache For Houston City Council

first_imgFlorian MartinHouston City Council delayed a vote on a $6 million contract for defibrillators Wednesday.At Wednesday’s meeting, city council members debated whether they should ratify a contract with medical equipment firm Physio-Control for defibrillators. The city entered into the agreement last fall and has already received the products.Greg Travis has been on council since January. He said the city should have shopped around before agreeing to pay almost $6 million for the contract.“Couple of weeks ago, when it came up, I said that seems an awful lot for this product,” Travis said. “So then I got online, I started looking at their products and I started comparing them and do my research when I realized, ‘Oh my God, we’re overpaying by almost $16,000 per product.’”The contract wasn’t put out for bid and Mayor Sylvester Turner said it was signed by a lower-level staff member in the city’s procurement office.Turner said he has already taken steps to prevent this from happening again.“The preferred route is always to go out for bid, No.1,” he said. “And No.2, if it’s a sole source item, the chief procurement officer — and that’s a new person that’s in there now, John Gillespie — he’s the one who has the responsibility of signing off on it.”Council members applauded the mayor, but some also wondered how many more potential savings were missed under the previous administration.The council delayed a vote on the defibrillator contract for one week, so that the mayor has a chance to possibly renegotiate it.

Solid Rock Church of Baltimore Hosts Forum on Homicide

first_imgBy Joi Thomas, Special to the AFROFor the past few years Baltimore residents have watched the homicide rate rise and things do not seem to be getting better. Elder Rashad Singletary, Executive Pastor of Solid Rock Church of Baltimore (7 E. North Ave.), has decided to take action.  He is hosting “Homicide and the Church: Faith-Based Organizations Building Strategies to take Action Against Violence in High Risk Communities,” on Feb. 2, 10 A.M. – noon at Solid Rock Church.Singletary is no stranger to the violence in Baltimore. For the past six years, he worked with the southern Park Heights community as a violence prevention coordinator and site director for Safe Streets Baltimore, a city-wide initiative to reduce shootings and homicides. Now he wants to bring that same awareness to the church community.  “I wanted to develop a platform that empowers the faith-based community to engage in the work of violence prevention. As we all know, Baltimore has become one of the nation’s deadliest places on the map; at the same time, Baltimore has a strong and influential faith community,” Singletary said.“In my mind, this is the greatest opportunity to bridge the gap and for the church to stand and unite together to combat crime in an impactful manner. We have the one true answer and it’s time for the church to get involved in the effort to take back our city.”Those attending this event can expect to leave with a plethora of information. Singletary is confident this seminar will inspire people to do more in their community. “We want to assist attendees with creating strategic plans of action to engage the high-risk community members,” Singletary said. “This will allow us to discuss events and programs that they can offer to provide resources that high-risk communities need in order to effectively impact individuals. Every church and ministry is not the same, but we want to assist churches in identifying effective resources they can offer.”Bishop J. L . Carter, Senior Pastor of Solid Rock Church of Baltimore is excited about what Singletary is doing.  “I salute Elder Rashad Singletary for his vision for a better Baltimore,” Carter said. “Gathering and engaging the stakeholders of our community for conversation that will result in a strategy for a beloved community is wonderful and encouraging. We owe this present generation, and generations to come, our best efforts in transforming a desert into an oasis.”Everyone is invited to attend.  Singletary said his team is looking for, “pastors, faith leaders, and outreach ministry representatives to come out along with community members who can engage in the conversation of the needs of the community. We will have our BCPD family present to add to this discussion.”Making our communities safer will take a concerted effort.  Schedule time to attend this seminar to get answers and ideas on how your church can better serve the community it’s a part of and help lower the violence we hear about so often.last_img read more

Netflix CEO Responds to 13 Reasons Why Controversy Dont Like It Dont

first_imgSome activists and health professionals have voiced concerns that “13 Reasons Why” may contribute to copycat suicides among teens.On Wednesday, conservative watchdog group Parents Television Council, in a statement about the “13 Reasons Why” renewal, said that Netflix “potentially has the blood of children on their hands from keeping this series… on its platform for children to view.” Netflix recently bulked up the parental controls on the streaming service, including allowing users to set password-only access to individual titles.Netflix has responded to concerns about the show’s themes by adding a new advisory video in front of the season 2 episode telling viewers about how to get help if they’re in crisis and pointing them to resources on the website 13reasonswhy.info. Netflix also has two after-show-style discussion specials called “Beyond the Reasons,” with the show’s actors, experts, and educators breaking down the series.The first season of the series, based on Jay Asher’s young-adult book by the same name, centers around the death of Hannah Baker, a high-school girl who has left behind a series of 13 audiotapes explaining what led her to suicide. In season 2, Hannah’s parents have sued the high school while at the same time, someone is planting a series of ominous Polaroids pointing to a conspiracy to cover up misdeeds by other classmates.“13 Reasons Why” is produced for Netflix by Paramount Television. While season one garnered critical acclaim, the sophomore season has bombed with reviewers with a current critics’ approval rating of just 27% on Rotten Tomatoes.Meanwhile, at the shareholders’ meeting Wednesday — which lasted about 20 minutes — Netflix shareholders approved the re-election of four directors: Anne Sweeney, former president of Disney-ABC Television Group; Richard Barton, executive chairman of Zillow Group and founder of Expedia; Brad Smith, Microsoft president and chief legal counsel; and Rodolphe Belmer, the former CEO of Canal Plus Group who joined Netflix’s board in January. Netflix shareholders also approved several non-binding measures that the company’s board opposes. Those included eliminating the supermajority vote requirement (representing two-thirds of outstanding shares) on corporate matters to allow for simple majority votes as well as to adopt a “proxy access” bylaw to let shareholders owning at least 3% of Netflix’s outstanding shares for at least one year to be able to nominate board candidates.However, because they’re non-binding measures, Netflix’s board of directors isn’t required to enact them — and the board has ignored such measures that have been approved in the past. Some activist investors have repeatedly complained that Netflix’s board is not receptive to shareholder concerns. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

The question was submitted by an unidentified shareholder who asked how Netflix weighed the decision to bring back a show that is “potentially controversial for a segment of its user base.”“It is controversial,” Hastings acknowledged. “But nobody has to watch it. We’re an on-demand service, and we feel great about the possibility of season 3 and look forward to supporting the team’s work in that.”Hastings said “13 Reasons Why” is “engaging content” that “has been enormously popular and successful.”last_img read more

Jetstar CEO urges axe checks save passengers 94

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: C.C <a href=”http://www.etbtravelnews.global/click/2a6f1/” target=”_blank”><img src=”http://adsvr.travelads.biz/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=10&amp;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE&amp;n=a5c63036″ border=”0″ alt=””></a> The New Zealand and Australian governments have been urged by Jetstar CEO, Bruce Buchanan, to drop immigration checks and passenger charges to simplify trans-Tasman travel, a report said. By dropping the checks at one side of the Tasman, passengers would save NZ$94 on a return fare, the New Zealand Herald reported. Jetstar and three other airlines support the move, though Mr Buchanan believes the motion is now at a standstill with officials.”The pollies are generally very receptive,” Mr Buchanan said. “I think the bureaucrats have a bit of change-aversion.” The change would see passenger numbers rise by up to 13 percent, boosting Australia and New Zealand’s GDP by up to NZ$454 million, said an Access Economics report commissioned by Jetstar. The proposal has been a longstanding point of discussion between trans-Tasman airlines, Qantas spokesperson Olivia Wirth said, and has the support of Jetstar’s parent company. Pacific Blue, of the Virgin Blue Group Airlines, also backed the proposed changes: “We support anything that makes the journey quicker and simpler and has the potential to take costs out of the journey without compromising safety,” spokesperson Colin Lippiatt said. Contenders argue that the proposed changes pose too many risks to logistics and security. “[The proposal is] a nice concept, but it would be extremely difficult and costly to implement in practice,” Customs Minister Maurice Williamson said. “This is because there would need to be a huge amount of alignment between the two countries and their systems to ensure all biosecurity and immigration risks can be identified and managed.” Independent aviation writer David Stone said many travellers would welcome having flights across the Tasman made more like a domestic flight, although saw the hurdles as too high to overcome.”Immigration and biosecurity and such checks are the two main issues that are obstacles to having a controlled border.”I think anybody would welcome simpler processes,” he said.last_img read more

What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke “We go in there and look at our workouts and there’s like 20 things to do in the morning. Normally it would be like six to eight,” Dockett said.Conditioning has taken place every day after practice, no matter what happened during practice and the guys are going with it, Dockett said. “We just said, ‘Alright coach, whatever you want us to do’,” Dockett said.The fact that the Cardinals most outspoken player has said that all is well in camp could be huge to the team, who apparently slacked off last year.“Last year, we worked hard to get to a certain level but I feel like a lot of guys didn’t buy into the program and do everything that was tolerated by our team to win,” Dockett said.last_img read more
