Darfur military component of UNAfrican Union force reaches over 60 per cent

23 December 2008The joint African Union-United Nations mission in the strife-torn Darfur region of Sudan received an additional 45 troops today, bringing the number of military staff to 12,242 – just over 60 per cent of the total military component of the force. However, this is still far short of the 26,000 uniformed personnel, including police, expected at full deployment. The peacekeeping force, known as UNAMID, was set up by the Security Council last year to protect civilians in Darfur, where an estimated 300,000 people have been killed and another 2.7 million have been displaced from their homes since rebels began fighting Government forces and allied militiamen, known as the Janjaweed, in 2003. While the Council authorized a force of about 26,000 uniformed personnel, only some 10,000 have been deployed so far, and senior UN officials have repeatedly called on countries to supply the remaining troops and equipment needed. In his latest report on UNAMID, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon wrote that fighting on the western flank of Sudan “and displacement continue, humanitarian operations are at risk, clashes between the parties occur with regrettable regularity and the parties have not reached a negotiated peace agreement.” In this environment, he added, the peacekeeping mission is hampered by a severely under-deployed force.The 45 members of the Ethiopian Medium Transport Company that arrived in West Darfur will primarily support the distribution of cargo between sector logistics bases, the movement of bulk cargo, including water and fuel tankers, and provide transport capabilities. The remaining 80 personnel are expected to arrive later this week. Ethiopia’s contribution to UNAMID includes an Ethiopian Engineering Unit, one Infantry Battalion and one Multi-Role Logistics Company. read more

Over 270000 pedestrians killed on roads every year – UN agency

More than 270,000 pedestrians lose their lives on roads each year, the United Nations health agency said today, calling on Governments to improve traffic safety.According to the World Health Organization (WHO), pedestrian casualties account for 22 per cent of the total 1.24 million road traffic deaths. To draw attention to the needs of pedestrians and generate action to protect them, WHO organized the Second UN Global Road Safety Week, which kicks off on 6 May with events in 70 countries.“The Second United Nations Global Road Safety Week offers an opportunity to highlight the myriad challenges that pedestrians face around the world each and every day,” said WHO Assistant Director-General of Noncommunicable Diseases and Mental Health, Oleg Chestnov. “We are all pedestrians, and Governments should put in place measures to better protect all of us. This will not only save lives, but create the conditions needed to make walking safe. When roads are safe, people will walk more, and this in turn will improve health and protect the environment,” he said, echoing the theme of Road Safety Week, “Make Walking Safe.” Pedestrians are among the most vulnerable road users. Studies indicate that males, both children and adults, make up a high proportion of pedestrian deaths and injuries. In developed countries, older pedestrians are more at risk, while in low-income and middle-income countries, children and young adults are often affected. Children and adults with disabilities suffer higher rates of injury as pedestrians compared to their non-disabled peers.“More than 5,000 pedestrians are killed on the world’s roads each week. This is because their needs have been neglected for decades, often in favour of motorized transport,” said the WHO Director of the Department of Violence and Injury Prevention and Disability, Etienne Krug. “We need to rethink the way we organize our transport systems to make walking safe and save pedestrian lives.”WHO and its partners also released a road safety manual for decision-makers and practitioners, which promotes a combining enforcement, engineering and education measures such as: adopting new laws to reduce speeding, curb drinking and driving, decrease mobile phone use, improve roadway lighting and put in place infrastructure that separates pedestrians from traffic.The agency also contributes to achieve the goal of to the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020. Launched in May 2011 by Governments across the world, the Decade of Action aims to save 5 million lives and seeks to build road safety management capacity in countries, improve the safety of roads and vehicles, enhance the behaviour of all road users and strengthen post-crash care. read more

Interim CAECO directors appointed

Camille Rutherford and Candace FiggProfessors Candace Figg and Camille Rutherford from the Faculty of Education will spend a year as acting co-directors for Brock’s Centre for Adult Education and Community Outreach (CAECO).Figg stepped in as acting director on July 1 as Sharon Abbey, CAECO director, began a one-year sabbatical. In January, Rutherford will take over for another six-month stretch.The appointments were recently announced by Fiona Blaikie, Dean, Faculty of Education.“I am delighted that Drs. Candace Figg and Camille Rutherford have agreed to serve as acting co-directors,” Blaikie said. “Their scholarly and experiential expertise in technology education, in adult education, and their involvement in CAECO thus far positions both Drs. Figg and Rutherford extremely well to keep CAECO moving forward with curriculum and program development and ongoing expansion.”Figg and Rutherford are well qualified to oversee the Centre and its Adult Education programs over the next year, Abbey said.“This is a great fit for us,” she said. “Candace and Camille have both served on the CAECO Program Advisory Committee and have recently developed Adult Education courses to increase our elective offerings.”In January, Rutherford facilitated the launch of a new elective that she developed titled “Introduction to Leadership Theory in Adult Learning.” The course was delivered via Sakai and Elluminate Live!, a web-based virtual environment.“It has been a pleasure to work with the CAECO team in the past,” Rutherford said. “I look forward to working closely with their outstanding support staff and being a part of their ongoing success.”Figg has also developed an elective, “Adult Learning with Technology,” that will be offered for the first time next year. The course will offer participants an opportunity to learn how to teach adults online using learning management systems, social networks, and digital/Web 2.0 tools.“In the five years I have served on the advisory committee for CAECO, the staff, facilitators and curriculum developers stand out for their commitment to the quality and rigor of the courses being offered,” Figg said. “ I hope that my background in distance education and technology education will be useful in maintaining the quality and uniqueness of the program.”Brock has offered the BEd in Adult Education programming since 1993 with courses offered online and face-to-face in 20 communities across Ontario. Students study part time to complete the degree program or the certificate program.“The ADED program is uniquely positioned at Brock to provide educational opportunities to a diverse group of learners,” Figg said. “The fact that the program uses a variety of delivery options — face-to-face at Brock and other campuses in Ontario, or totally online — means that there are courses that meet the learning needs of any student interested in how adults learn.” read more

Motherofthree walks free after being accused of lacing husbands chilli with drugs

first_imgDuring the trial, her barrister Derek Barry accused Mr Maasdorp of “putting a very small amount of medication into your own chilli to make a false allegation against Roberta”.  Roberta MaasdorpCredit:TIM STEWART NEWS LIMITED Roberta Maasdorp, who is accused of lacing her husband Peter Maasdorp's chilli con carne with a cocktail of drugs  Roberta Maasdorp A mother-of-three was found not guilty of slipping a cocktail of drugs into her husband’s chilli con carne after he threatened to file for divorce.A jury at Croydon Crown Court took less than 40 minutes to clear Roberta Maasdorp of administering a poison with intent.  The alleged incident took place on August 11 2015, when her husband Peter arrived home from his shift at the Princess Royal University Hospital in Orpington, at 10pm. He claimed: “When I took a mouthful of the food, there was quite a distinct chemical taste to the food, it was chilli con carne that evening that was prepared by Roberta,” he said. “It had a very acidic taste to it, very chemical. “I spat the food out on to the plate that I had with me, then went to the bathroom to go and wash my mouth out.”Mr Maasdorp had been questioned by police about allegations that he had assaulted his wife on the day before the alleged poisoning, but this was dropped when he said he had been on a training course that day, the court heard. John Evison, prosecuting, told Croydon Crown Court that Mrs Maasdorp had told police her husband had added the drugs to the food himself in order to frame her. “She accepted she had made the chilli con carne and bought the ingredients, but denied lacing the food with drugs,” he said.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Mrs Maasdorp claimed her husband was angry because she had reported him to the police the day before for assaulting her. “He had the motive – revenge – for having to go to the police station”, said Mr Barry. “And he would have had access to his wife’s drugs.”Mrs Maasdorp later told police that she did not trust her husband.“I’ve been away for a few days because I am scared for my safety,” she said. Following the acquittal, Recorder Simon Sterling refused to make a restraining order preventing Mrs Maasdorp from going to the family home unless he was given more evidence that it was necessary. She has now moved out to Forest Hill and her husband has custody of their two younger daughters, the court heard. Mrs Maasdorp denied and was found not guilty of administering a poison with intent.   Roberta Maasdorp was found not guilty by a juryCredit:TIM STEWART NEWSlast_img read more

iOS 5 WiFi Sync may have been inspired by an indie developer

first_imgWhen Apple unveiled all of the new features coming in iOS 5 this fall when it’s released to users, one of the biggest is Wi-Fi Sync. Finally, iOS devices will be able to synchronize photos, music, and video with other iOS and Mac OS systems without having to connect to them physically. The trouble is, one developer already wrote an app to do just that… and had it rejected by Apple when he submitted it.Greg Hughes, a college student at the University of Birmingham in the UK, wrote an app called “Wi-Fi Sync” back in 2009. He submitted the app to Apple, and Apple rejected it from the App Store. They did, however, call Hughes to congratulate him on his achievement – they were impressed with the app and how it resolved the wireless syncing issue that many iPhone users complained about. However, they cited “security concerns” and told Hughes he couldn’t list it in the iTunes App Store.AdChoices广告Hughes then went to the Cydia store instead, posted his app there for the tidy price of $9.99, and even though only jailbroken iPhones could download and use it, he still made a good bit of money from it. Now, Apple has rolled the exact same feature with the same name and even a very similar icon for the app into iOS 5, effectively killing Hughes’ app and its sales.Apple has a history of rejecting apps from iTunes that add functionality to iOS that they plan to introduce or don’t want included, and Apple has a history of approving apps only to make them obsolete with future feature updates, so there’s no surprise there. Apple even hired one dev that made an app improving on iOS’s notifications system. Also, no one is accusing Apple of simply stealing the app and re-branding it, it is quite possible Apple engineered it themselves. The idea however, is ripe for discussion.Hughes’ outrage comes from the notion that Apple is using the same name and icon (the one on the right is Apple’s,) and possibly even the same technology to do what his app already does. AppAdvice thinks that the improvements in iOS 5 are designed to discourage jailbraking by offering features previously only available to those who jailbreak. Others say that Apple is just adding features to iOS that people clearly want. It’s unclear if anything will come of the controversy, but the debate continues.via AppAdvicelast_img read more

She prays her son dies before her elderly Kerry residents at wits

first_img“She prays her son dies before her” – elderly Kerry residents at wits’ end over care for adult children Following a recent HSE move there is now no full-time respite centre in the Munster county. Sunday 12 Mar 2017, 10:00 PM 46,862 Views “The Community Healthcare Organisation for Cork/Kerry acknowledges that the existing level of respite in Kerry does not meet the need,” they added.Funding issueDirector of Services with Kerry Parents and Friends Maura Crowley says the situation is “one for which funding should be made available”.“It’s regrettable, we’ve a high need for respite across the county,” she says. “We’re working with the HSE to open Kilmorna. We’d like to open in south Kerry as well but it’s a funding issue.”Crowley says that much of the trouble comes down to regulations introduced in 2013 regarding the treatment of patients with intellectual disabilities.“As an organisation we’d try to organise the respite in creative ways. But now with the HIQA (Health Information and Quality Authority) regulations we can’t use someone else’s bed for a weekend for example,” she says.We’re hamstrung now, we’d always have been able to pull something out of the hat before but now… They brought in these regulations and they didn’t look at the impact that they would have.Local Sinn Féin TD Martin Ferris meanwhile describes the situation as being “deplorable”.“I’ve raised this a number of times in the Dáil. If the people responsible for this sat down with the parents,” he says.These people, a lot of them are elderly, they’ve loved ones in their late 40s and they want a small bit of respite care and it’s just impossible for them to get it.Of Kilmorna sitting idle, Ferris says the estimated €600,000 it would cost to run the centre for a year is “very, very small money” (by contrast, the HSE has spent €3 million upgrading its own headquarters in Dublin in the past five years).“It might not solve everything, but it would be a big help. Certainly it would at least make a little bit of difference,” he says.Meanwhile, the older residents of north Kerry are left in a sort of limbo.“You would wonder, is there a policy not to provide respite going forward,” says Kay Sayers, a 57-year-old mother to 33-year-old Seán who until recently received respite care at the Haven.“Seán had a great rapport with the staff. When and if respite becomes available again we will have to start from scratch,” Kay says.It’s a huge issue for those with intellectual disabilities. Familiarity is so, so important. The house purchased by the HSE at Kilmorna, Listowel, last June Source: MyHome.ieThe lack of respite care in the area, and the fact that the Kilmorna property stands vacant, has been put down to a lack of funding by the HSE (the Department of Health has firmly put the issue in the executive’s court).Respite services across Kerry are run by a voluntary organisation called Kerry Parents and Friends.“The HSE is continuing to engage with Kerry Parents and Friends to explore all options to minimise the reduction in services,” a HSE spokesperson said in response to a request for comment.Regarding the house at Kilmorna that has been left empty, the spokesperson said: “Unfortunately, HSE Disability Services were not successful in securing revenue funding in the 2017 budget to open this service.”The HSE will continue to work to secure the necessary funding to open this service. Laura Kelly Share Tweet Email5 By Cianan Brennan Short URL We’re bursting at the seams because of our age and health problems. This isn’t about passing off our problems, it’s about refuelling in order to be able to cope again. We’re at breaking point.A NUMBER OF elderly parents in north County Kerry have slammed the lack of respite services available for their adult children who are living with disabilities.In the Listowel area of the southern county, there is now no dedicated respite centre for parents in such a position.Such care exists to enable full-time carers to take a short break, a holiday, or even just a rest.The site of a former respite centre in Listowel known as the Haven, was recently redesignated primarily as a centre for those dependent upon full-time care.The HSE purchased another four-bedroom property in the Kilmorna area of the town last year for €350,000, however that property remains vacant a full nine months later.66-year-old Ann Kelly hails from nearby Ballybunion. Ann’s 30-year-old daughter Laura has Down Syndrome. Three weeks ago Ann, along with the other parents in her locality in the same position, were told at a meeting that the Haven would no longer be available to them as a respite service.“We don’t want respite for holidays or days out – these are just to try and gather strength to do another few weeks,” she says.We love our children with every bone in our bodies and have spent every day of our lives since they were born fighting for their rights. We are now in a position where we are scared we will get sick or die because of what will happen to our children. One lady at that meeting said she prays her son dies before her. That’s where we are. There is an awful tragedy waiting to happen in north Kerry. 43 Comments https://jrnl.ie/3281357 In our situation one person has to work, one person has to stay at home, it’s like mobilising an army when you’re caring for someone with intellectual needs. You rely on respite for down-time – it’s just not feasible to get someone in for a one-off.“We’re not parents that know one another,” agrees Ann. “We’re a group of about 20 parents with special relationships in place, because we have adults that have special needs. That’s the only way we can handle the situation.”At that meeting, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. Over 70-year-olds with grown men and women in their home and they’re not able to look after them. Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Mar 12th 2017, 10:00 PM Respite isn’t a luxury – it’s a necessity. It enables carers to keep their loved ones at home, without it you’d have a lot of disabled adults in full-time residential care, and that would cost the State a hell of a lot more.“I spoke to a lady recently who’s minding her brother who’s 41 and her mother who’s 86 and has dementia. The only break she ever had was respite and now it’s gone. Meanwhile that house sits empty, becoming neglected and run down. This is a scandal, it’s another can of worms just waiting to be opened.”Read: The HSE has spent €3m upgrading its headquarters in the last five yearsRead: ‘Don’t have the wool pulled over their eyes’: Comreg to investigate Three over roaming chargeslast_img read more

THI Australia to build on philanthropy in Greece with new initiative

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Since the inception of the Australian branch of The Hellenic Initiative (THI) three years ago, the organisation has set its sights on easing the impact of the financial crisis on Greek locals.In addition to their collaborative efforts with their THI partners in the US and the UK and most recently Canada, THI Australia has provided nearly $120,000 in grants to their charity partners to provide food and medical assistance to the most vulnerable members of the community. They have also managed to harness the resources of the Greek diaspora to contribute to the country’s economic development with an internship programme in Australia for Greek graduates and an avenue for entrepreneurs to pitch their start-up ideas to investors. President Nicholas Pappas, AM told Neos Kosmos that following their success, they now have their sights set on building their reach and impact with the launch of a new initiative One Greece 2017. As part of the push to get more Greek Australians and philhellenes on board, five events will be hosted across Australia in Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide, and Darwin with a premiere gala event at the Sydney Town Hall on Friday 6 October, where it has been revealed guests will be treated to a performance by renowned performer Alkistis Protopsalti. At all the events attendees will have the opportunity to find out more about the work being carried out by THI Australia and find out how their contribution on the night will make a direct impact on the lives of struggling Greeks.Joining members of the THI board as speakers will be international guests THI International Ambassador and noted humanitarian and philanthropist, Tatiana Blatnik, and Alexander Theodoridis, co-founder of Boroume, a food-saving charity providing sustenance for thousands.“We’ve been running our branch for a couple of years now and we are looking to raise further money to grow our programme and take it to the next level,” Mr Pappas said.“We wanted to bring out speakers who are able to convey to the audience what’s really happening in Greece and the great work being done on the ground by various people. So guests can expect to be taken on a journey through what is going on in Greece and see how their contribution will help.”(L-R) Tatiana Blatnik and Alexander Theodoridis will be guest speakers at the One Greece events. More than 1,500 business and community leaders are expected to attend the events nationally with money raised being put towards boosting THI Australia’s programs to further assist charities Boroume and Desmos, which is a portal that connects people in need with resources, and will also help to build on the opportunities on offer to Greek graduates and entrepreneurs. Meanwhile, Mr Pappas said that the THI Australia team is currently undergoing their evaluation round for charities and crisis relief programmes, with additional partners expected to be named at the gala event in Sydney.“We branded it as One Greece as a call for everyone who feels passionately about the cause to come and support us,” said Mr Pappas.“This is the first time a series of national events has been held in Australia in support of Greece. It is a splendid opportunity for the Greek Australian diaspora to demonstrate their abiding concern for the people of Greece, and I encourage as many as possible to attend events in their respective cities.”Please note the One Greece event is Melbourne is a private event, and Darwin is sold out. Tickets are still available for Sydney, Perth, and Adelaide.

SpaceXs Starship hopper freezes up but could still throw fire soon

first_img 0 16 Photos Tags A burst of steam was seen issuing forth from the bottom of the rocket, but no flames. In case you’re wondering why there appears to be fire flaring out of a small stack near the Starship, that’s likely excess methane or other gases being burned off. Videos have also circulated online showing lots of flames at the pad after dark Monday night, which are probably also the same gas flares. Early Tuesday morning, Elon Musk said on Twitter that the first test of a Raptor engine as part of Starship had been set back by “some challenges with ice formation in the cryogenic propellant prevalves. Hopefully overcome soon.” Elon Musk shows off the shiny SpaceX Starship April Fools’ Day turned out to be a quiet day for Elon Musk and SpaceX. There had been a chance the rocket company would fire up its two next-generation rockets on Monday, but instead both test firings were delayed. For the past few weeks SpaceX has been working toward starting up a single Raptor engine “hopper” prototype of its Starship (formerly known as BFR) at its Boca Chica, Texas, launch facility. After days of checking out the rocket’s tanks and lots of observed venting at the pad but no rocket fire, there finally seemed to be something happening Monday. Some challenges with ice formation in the cryogenic propellant prevalves. Hopefully overcome soon.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 2, 2019 Share your voice Close-up video of the rocket prototype obtained by a local information site from nearby South Padre Island showed that everything seemed to be normal as of Tuesday morning.  Meanwhile, a planned static fire test of SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket has been pushed back from Monday to Wednesday, according to NASASpaceflight.com. The last time we saw Heavy, which is basically three Falcon rockets and an upper stage strapped together, in action it was launching Musk’s red Tesla toward Mars.  Despite the test being delayed, Heavy is still slated for its first commercial launch on Sunday evening when it carries commercial communications satellite Arabsat 6A to orbit.  And we could still see some action for the Starship hopper soon. The FAA has issued airspace closures for the Boca Chica area for Tuesday through Thursday.  Sci-Tech Post a comment Elon Musk Space SpaceXlast_img read more

Kickstarter Games Castle Gives a Spotlight to Independent Games at PAX East

first_img PAX East 2017 Hand’s On: HUNTDOWNPAX East 2017: Hand’s On With DRAGON QUEST HEROES II Stay on target One of the great things about the various Penny Arcade Expos are the shows’ focus on smaller games. While larger publishers certainly have a presence, independent games are the true heart of any PAX event. This year’s PAX East will take this idea even further with Kickstarter Games Castle.The Kickstarter Games Castle will feature a range of Kickstarter-funded video and table top games. You read that correctly: table top games. PAX has always been a home for gamers, and not just the ones who play video games. Some of these tabletop games include: Exploding Kittens, Bears vs Babies, and Secret Hitler. On the video game front, there are games like The Flame in the Flood, Night in the Woods, and Divinity: Original Sin 2.All of the games in the Kickstarter Games Castle have been successfully funded.
