UNICEF to distribute school supplies to 400000 children in Liberia

“UNICEF will be distributing 5,500 educational kits and each kit has enough school supplies for 80 kids for three months, including copybooks, pens and pencils, and crayons,” UNICEF country representative Angela Kearney said, adding that the kits also have teachers’ supplies like chalk, erasers and flipcharts.She noted that every kit is being delivered to the schools free thanks to the support of the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) and the UN World Food Programme (WFP) and called for vigilance that none of the supplies were sold for profit.“We call on all of our partners, community associations, child welfare committees, parent teacher associations, parents, and concerned citizens to report to the Liberian national police if they see anyone selling UNICEF school supplies in the market,” she said.“The supplies are free, they are for the children, and let’s make sure the kids get them for free.” read more

Ahead of World Peace Day UN chief says Global Goals are building

‹› In his message ahead of the Day, the Secretary-General said the theme of this year’s observance highlights the 17 Sustainable Development Goals – or SDGs – as building blocks for peace. “Sustainable development is essential for lasting peace, and both depend on respect for human rights,” he said. “All of us can be sustainable development advocates.” “On this International Day of Peace, express your commitment to peace by becoming a champion for the SDGs,” he said. The Day was established in 1981 by the UN General Assembly. Two decades later in 2001, the Assembly unanimously voted to designate the Day as a period of non-violence and ceasefire. The UN invites all nations and people to honour a cessation of hostilities during the Day, and to otherwise commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues related to peace. Peter Thomson, President of the seventy-first session of the General Assembly, rings the Peace Bell at the annual ceremony held at UN headquarters in observance of the International Day of Peace. UN Photo/Rick Bajornas Mr. Ban said that every year on that day, the United Nations calls on warring parties around the world to observe a 24-hour ceasefire. “But peace is not just about putting weapons aside. It is about building societies where people share the benefits of prosperity on a healthy planet,” Mr. Ban said in his message for the Day, observed annually on 21 September. The UN system is marking the Day early this year, with a host of events that kicked off this morning in the Peace Garden at UN Headquarters, where Mr. Ban rang the Peace Bell and observed a minute of silence. Women Nobel Peace Prize laureates and the United Nations Messengers of Peace have been invited to participate in the ceremony. Mr. Ban sounded a call for peace and a day of non-violence before proceeding to ring the Bell. “You know best of all that peace is not an accident. Peace is not a gift. Peace is something we must all work for, every day, in every country,” he said.While welcoming ceasefires – like the Cessation of Hostilities in Syria, the UN chief stressed that peace is about far more than putting weapons aside and that it involves the hard work of mediation, conflict resolution through diplomacy, reconciliation, peacebuilding and sustaining peace.He said that he looks forward to visiting Cartagena, Colombia on 26 September for the signing of the historic peace agreement which ends the 50-year war between the Government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People’s Army. In addition, the UN Education Outreach Section will hold a global student videoconference, also at Headquarters. The Education Outreach Section invited young people from around the world to submit videos on how the Sustainable Development Goals can build peace. The most engaging videos can be viewed on the UN International Day of Peace YouTube channel and a small selection will be shown at the global student videoconference.

Care home insolvencies rise amid pressure from living wage costs

Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. A study by NatWest last year found that staff costs in nursing homes run by small and medium businesses had reached 55 per cent of turnover.Separate research carried out by Opus Restructuring and Company Watch also found that one in four of the UK’s 2,500 home care companies was at risk of insolvency.Lee Causer, a partner at Moore Stephens, said: “Care homes should be benefiting from the demographics of the UK – an ageing population. But they are not.“Care homes are not receiving enough local Government funding to sustain the profit margins necessary to run a successful business.“Many companies are finding it difficult to cope with the rising costs associated with the care industry.“Without additional income, care homes will not be able to offer the levels of care required whilst remaining solvent.” The number of care home businesses going bust has nearly doubled in a year as experts warn that the new living wage could be putting standards at risk. Official figures show that the number of residential care businesses entering insolvency during the year to the end of March rose to 148, up from 81 during the previous financial year. The first quarter of this year had a higher number than in any previous recorded quarter, with provisional data from the insolvency service suggesting 44 businesses were newly insolvent. Analysing the figures, accountancy firm Moore Stephens said that the cost of providing quality care had risen, in part because of the introduction of the national living wage two years ago. As of April this year workers aged 25 and over must be paid a minimum of £7.83 an hour following pay reforms introduced in April 2016. Staffing costs have been identified as one of the pressures on social care, with experts warning that some businesses risk becoming over-reliant on expensive agency staff as they struggle to recruit quality full-time employees. While higher pay could attract more people to the sector, there is concern that some businesses are struggling to stay afloat as fees paid by local authorities for council-funded residents are too low. read more

Apple files patent for Kinectlike device

first_imgWith the success of Microsoft’s Kinect device on both Windows PCs and the 360, you knew it was only a matter of time before the folks at Cupertino would try to cash in on motion control. Pictured above is an image taken from a patent application submitted by Apple that outlines a “three-dimensional imaging and display system”, that looks to be used in conjunction with an older model of iMac (we checked the dates, the patent was submitted August 17th of this year).The concept illustrated here is pretty simple, the square device laying in front of the user on the table is the motion sensor that detects gestures and movements for user interactions. Using an infrared laser, the unit makes an imaginary “box” represented by the dotted lines that a user puts their hands inside to manipulate their desktop. While it certainly looks interesting, there are some perceived limitations to this design. How will the unit differentiate between a human and other objects? This is where the patent in question falls more into the category of the Nintendo Wii rather than the Microsoft Kinect.Think about when you first played the tennis game on a Nintendo Wii. You know you were busting shots like John McEnroe, jumping all around the room and coming dangerously close to smashing into walls and other people; that is until you learned that all you have to do is flick your wrist a tiny bit to get the players on screen to react.The Wii reads motion, which makes it a “dumb” terminal of sorts, and thus easy to trick. Just give it the simple input it’s looking for and it responds. The Kinect however, is responding to you. Microsoft’s wonder device is much deeper in concept and design. Unless we’re missing something this Apple concept also acts like a dumb terminal; instead of waggling a controller, you waggle your hands to make things happen. Of course, it’s more complex than that, but you get the general idea.Who knows what Apple has up its sleeve? The device in question could be one piece of a larger puzzle of awesomeness that will blow the Kinect out of the water. It almost has to be assumed that there is something else in the wings that is going to be called “magical”. Only time will tell.Read more at Unwired Viewlast_img read more

North Korea says it categorically rejects autopsy results before theyre even released

first_imgNorth Korea says it ‘categorically rejects’ autopsy results before they’re even released Kim Jong-Nam, the half-brother of North Korea’s leader, was killed in Malaysia. A TV screen shows pictures of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un (R) and his older brother Kim Jong Nam (L). Image: AP/Press Association Images By AFP MALAYSIAN POLICE HAVE arrested a North Korean man over the assassination of Kim Jong-Un’s brother, as relations between Pyongyang and Kuala Lumpur nosedived in a battle for his body.A 46-year-old was arrested on yesterday evening with documents that identified him as North Korean citizen Ri Jong Chol, a police statement said, making him the first person from the North to be detained over the case.Kim Jong-Nam died after an as-yet unidentified liquid was sprayed in his face at Kuala Lumpur international airport on Monday, in an attack Seoul says was carried out by female agents from Pyongyang.Local officers have already arrested a woman with a Vietnamese passport and a Malaysian man, as well as an Indonesian woman who foreign police said could have got involved in the murder thinking it was a reality TV prank.Jong-Nam’s body has been held in a Kuala Lumpur morgue since an autopsy on Wednesday, the results of which are still pending, according to Selangor state police chief Abdul Samah Mat.After Malaysia ignored demands to return the remains, Pyongyang accused the Kuala Lumpur of conspiring with its enemies and said it would reject whatever results came from the post-mortem.“The Malaysian side forced the post-mortem without our permission and witnessing. We will categorically reject the result of the post-mortem conducted unilaterally excluding our attendance,” the North Korean ambassador told reporters gathered outside the morgue shortly before midnight last night. The car of the ambassador of North Korea to Malaysia leaves the hospital. Source: Vincent Thian/APThe comments were the first official remarks from the country since the killing, but ambassador Kang Chol stopped short of identifying Jong-Nam or touching on his cause of death.North Korean state media has remained silent on the murder.The ambassador had met with Malaysian police, demanding the release of the body without success, according to an English transcript of the envoy’s comments distributed by an aide.“They are colluding with the hostile forces towards us who are desperate to harm us of malice,” the transcript said, suggesting South Korea was trying to defame the North in a bid to distract from a corruption scandal at home.A ‘TV show prank’Today, Malaysia’s police chief has said Pyongyang would have to wait for the investigation to be completed, which would include a family member sending a DNA sample to identify the body.“While in Malaysia, everyone has to obey and follow our rules and regulations… that includes North Korea,” Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar told national news agency Bernama.Pyongyang and Kuala Lumpur had enjoyed warm ties until the assassination, with a reciprocal visa-free deal for visitors — an unusual proposition for the reclusive North.Before the arrest of the North Korean, detectives had detained a 25-year-old Indonesian woman named Siti Aishah and her Malaysian boyfriend, along with a woman carrying a Vietnamese passport that identified her as Doan Thi Huong, 28. Kuala Lumpur International Airport where the killing took place. Source: Margie Mason/APIndonesian Police Chief Tito Karnavian said he had information from Malaysia that Aishah was tricked into thinking she was simply taking part in pranks for a TV show.“Probably she was just used — she did not realise it was an assassination attempt,” he was quoted as saying in local media.The drama erupted on Monday morning as Jong-Nam prepared to board a plane to Macau. Malaysian police say the 45-year-old was jumped by two women who squirted a liquid in his face.Jong-Nam told staff he was suffering from a headache and was taken to the airport clinic grimacing in pain, according to Malaysian media citing CCTV footage from the airport.He was once thought to be the natural successor to his father, but on Kim Jong-Il’s death in 2011 the succession went to Kim Jong-Un, who was born to the former leader’s third wife.Reports of purges and executions have emerged from the current regime as Jong-Un tries to strengthen his grip on power in the face of international pressure over nuclear and missile programmes.South Korea has cited a “standing order” from Jong-Un to kill his sibling and a failed assassination bid in 2012 after he criticised the regime.© – AFP 2017Read: Woman arrested over ‘assassination’ of Kim Jong Un’s half brother >Read: Half-brother of North Korean leader ‘assassinated in Malaysia by poison needles’ > 15,948 Views A TV screen shows pictures of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un (R) and his older brother Kim Jong Nam (L).

This Remote Nevada Area Is One of the Darkest Spots in the

first_img Hubble Captures Gorgeous Star’s Final Stages of LifeAstronomers Discover Planet With Strange, Egg-Shaped Orbit A remote wilderness area in northwestern Nevada is officially one of the darkest places in the world and has been designated an International Dark Sky Sanctuary, making it only the seventh place in the world with the elusive designation.The Massacre Rim Wilderness Study Area, located in far northern Washoe County, Nevada near the borders of California and Oregon, received the designation from the International Dark-Sky Association, which says a Dark Sky Sanctuary is a place that has an “exceptional or distinguished quality of starry nights and a nocturnal environment that is protected for its scientific, natural, or educational value, its cultural heritage and/or public enjoyment.”What better way to celebrate #IDSW2019 than with a new IDSSanctuary? Congrats to Massacre Rim WSA in Nevada! While the #MilkyWay is in plain sight, visitors will also be awestruck to view our neighboring galaxy, Andromeda, w/the naked eye. : R.Bednarski— IDA Dark-Sky (@IDADarkSky) April 2, 2019The Bureau of Land Management and Friends of Nevada Wilderness jointly applied for the designation for Massacre Rim, which becomes only the fourth sanctuary of its kind in the United States and the first in Nevada.“While all of the wilderness areas and wilderness study areas in Nevada are special remote places, the Massacre Rim WSA stands out because it is so far from any major populated areas, making light pollution there next to immeasurable,” said Friends of Nevada Wilderness Executive Director Shaaron Netherton. “People lucky enough to venture there on a clear moonless night will not only see the enormity of the Milky Way but will also be awestruck to view our neighboring galaxy, Andromeda, with the naked eye.”Other U.S. dark sky sanctuaries include Cosmic Campground in New Mexico, Rainbow Bridge National Monument in Utah and Devils River-State Natural Area Del Norte in Texas. The Great Barrier Island and Stewart Island in New Zealand, and the Gabriela Mistral in Chile, are also certified dark sky sanctuaries.Massacre Rim Wilderness Area joins places such as Stewart Island in New Zealand (pictured) to become the seventh spot in the world designated as an International Dark Sky Sanctuary. (Photo Credit: Mantas Volungevicius / Getty Images)The designation will not change any access rules or regulations for Massacre Rim, a designated wilderness study area of 101,000 acres managed by the Bureau of Land Management, the Reno Gazette Journal reported. But it will likely elevate the area’s profile as a destination for star-gazers and astronomers.To achieve the designation, staff from Friends of Nevada Wilderness documented the darkness of the sky using objective light-measuring measurements for several nights in April and July of 2018, according to the newspaper. The measurements captured readings that showed how the look of the sky rated on the Bortle Scale, a nine-point system that measures the visibility of stars and other natural light in the night sky.The group documented qualities such as the ability to see distinct features of the Milky Way, entities such as the M33 galaxy and natural starlight bright enough to cause objects to cast shadows, according to the Reno Gazette Journal.The findings showed the Massacre Rim area ranked at the top of the Bortle Scale and was worthy of the Dark Sky Sanctuary designation.With elevations ranging from 5,500 to almost 7,000 feet, the area is dominated by a 1,200-foot escarpment rising abruptly from Long Valley and culminating in a jet-black, basalt rim. The area is rich in wildlife, including pronghorn, desert bighorn sheep, greater sage-grouse and birds of prey. The wide-open vistas offer expansive and unobstructed views of the night sky.Visitors can reach Massacre Rim via Route 8A heading east out of Cedarville. Nevada State Route 34, a maintained gravel road that intersects 8A just south of Vya, Nevada, traverses the western edge of Massacre Rim WSA and offers panoramic views. Interior areas of the WSA are accessible by rugged dirt roads that require a high-clearance four-wheel drive vehicle.More on Meteor Lights Up Sky Above Florida, Stuns WitnessesNASA Spots Glowing ‘Red Butterfly’ in SpaceMysterious Glowing ‘Dragon’ Aurora Spotted Over Iceland Stay on targetlast_img read more

Tom Walker On What A Time To Be Alive Music As Therapy

first_imgWe caught up with Walker at our Santa Monica, Calif. headquarters to learn more about his upcoming album, how songwriting helps him work through lives challenges, his favorite venue he’s played at, and more.Your debut album What a Time to be Alive comes out soon, October 19th. How are you feeling about putting that out into the world?I’m happy, it’s cool. I’ve been working on it for ages and ages. It feels like it’s in a really good place. The songs are just really strong and I’ve picked up, I think I’ve picked up of like 120 songs, I picked 11. Its 45 minutes of music. Spent ages getting the track list. I know people listen to a lot of stuff on streaming and don’t listen to albums as much these days, but to me, a proper artist has a proper album. I wanted to make sure the flow and the mix of everything, the continuity, was all one thing and it was fluid and I feel like I’ve gotten there. We’ve been a bit pushed for time because we’ve had 150 gigs this year. If I’ve not been out on the road, I’ve been in the studio and it’s just been back and forth and back and forth, crazy. I’m really excited and I’m really happy, which I didn’t think I’d be, I thought I’d be super nervous, but I feel like I’m ready to put it out into the world and see what everybody thinks.How do you feel working on this album versus your EP that you came out with; how is the creative process different?With this album, I went with three different producers. I worked with Jim Abbiss who I made the Blessings EP with, Steve Mark who I did two of the singles with and Mike Spencer who I’ve done a couple of the singles and some of the album tracks. It’s a really amazing opportunity and quite rare to work with three producers of that caliber, at this stage in your career, when you’ve had one big song out. You know what I mean? It was such a cool experience and all three are really different and really unique in their own ways and brought the best out of me in a few different ways. It was really cool. I love being in studio, I really enjoy it. I’m a bit of a studio guy, if I’m not out on tour, I wanna be in the studio. As soon as I’m in the studio for too long, I wanna be out on tour. It’s been a good balance, doing that for the whole album. It feels good.Speaking of hit single, “Leave a Light On” is very emotionally stirring and has caught the attention of a lot of people worldwide. I read that it was about real people in your life. How has songwriting helped you process things that you’ve gone through in life? Have you gotten feedback from fans that your music has also helped them?I feel like songwriting, for me, is kind of therapy. If I do have issues and I do have troubles, the best way to work it out is to write a song about it. I think you mentally just internalize the problem and somehow, you just get through it a little quicker. That’s for me, that’s probably why I’m a songwriter, you know? It’s not gonna work for everybody. I just find, putting it on paper really helps it. And “Leave A Light On” in particular is about a friend of mine, who kind of had a bit of an addiction problem. I had messages from people all over the world saying they had a brother or a sister or a parent or a friend or anybody who’s gone through a similar thing and this song’s helped them get through something and when I wrote it, I never really expected that. It’s been a really cool side effect of writing the song. Other people have had issues and it’s helped them through it. It’s kind of cool that music does that. I never really thought of that when I wrote it. I didn’t expect the reaction that it got, it’s cool.I’ve had a few people come up to me as well and tell me some pretty tragic, heartbreaking stories. It’s always nice to meet people who’ve had their own experiences with the song and got through something pretty tough. Makes you feel good about what you’re doing. Because I think the music industry can feel a little selfish sometimes, like everything’s about you, but it’s nice to actually be helping some people through some stuff.You mentioned that you’ve been touring a lot. You’re finishing up your tour in the U.S., you’ve played Glastonbury – what’s your favorite show that you’ve played so far?Favorite show? There’s been loads this year. I think Coco in London. I was so nervous cause it was the biggest venue we’d ever played in London and we sold it out super quickly. All of the label and all of my publishers and everybody came down, all my friends who I wrote the songs with and producers that I worked with, everybody was there. It was super nerve-racking, but it was amazing.Glastonbury was special as well because I finished by set, which I could only do acoustically, I couldn’t even get tickets for the band. I basically got offered the slot because I already bought a ticket for the festival. I didn’t have any help with my gear but this little trailer and had my guitar amplifier and my acoustic, I was lugging it through Glastonbury.It took an hour and an half to get it from my car to the stage, and then from the stage back to the car, another hour and an half. So like three hours for the day, just getting there and back. I did the set and it was amazing, the tent was full, which I couldn’t believe because there’s so many amazing artists playing at Glastonbury, I was like, “Well, nobody’s gonna come and fill this tent up”, but they did and it was great. Then as soon as I came out and finished my set, Elbow, which is like one of my favorite bands, were doing a secret set on the stage right there. So, I literally finished, put my gear away, came out, and they started their show and I just sat and watched it. I was like, how cool is this? I just finished my first set at Glastonbury and then I’ve come out and I’ve watched one of my favorite bands play a secret gig. That was pretty special.

A single he released last year “Leave a Light On,” a touching, emotionally-charged track that he wrote about a friend dealing with a substance problem, has already gained him an international following.It is clear that music has been Walker’s lifeblood since his early days listening to Michael Jackson’s Thriller on this dad’s record player as a kid, and that he is ecstatic to be sharing his passion—his music—with the world.

My dad had a pretty cool stereo at the time. My sister, unfortunately blew it up at a house party. Thriller was one of the first things I can remember dancing to around the living room, as a kid to and just being really scared, you know all the sounds effects that they put in that song and the speech at the end of it. It was really frightening when you were a kid. I just thought that was really cool.Growing up listening to music, did you know that was what you wanted to be an artist, or how did that change as you grew up and started pursuing music? I thought I wanted to be a guitarist, not an artist. I didn’t start singing and writing songs properly until I was 19. I think I was quite late to the party, in that sense. I’ve since made up for it, but I just loved guitar. I was a massive fan of AC/DC, Foo Fighters, Muse – I went to see all of them live. B.B. King, Chuck Berry, I love Ray Charles, I just like a bit of everything. I always was fascinated by music and when I saw my favorite bands doing a live show or seeing them on TV, I just thought “That looks so much fun.” I kind of wanted to pursue some form of that, I didn’t realize I would end up being an artist and being a songwriter and a singer. It just kind of all fell into place naturally, which was nice. I never really forced or didn’t set out to be like “I wanna be famous,” I just wanted to play music.You studied music in college. Do you think the degree helped prepare you for working in the music industry?I think the degree was really interesting because, in England it’s not free to go to university, but they lend you the money. It’s the best loan you’ll ever get. It’s a bit harder now, but when I was doing it at the time, it was fairly easy to get it. It just gave me three years to really focus on songwriting. The degree was good, but I felt there was bits of it that really weren’t that relevant to the industry. It could’ve been better in that sense. It’s an amazing degree, but actually getting into the industry, there was loads of things that they never told or warned us about, but it gave me the time to really build my craft. The songwriting teachers there were amazing. Really helped me with the songwriting, for sure. Also, I had Logic lessons, which really helped me recording and getting to production and stuff like that. The kind of music business side of it wasn’t really there, but the rest of it was great.Is there kind of like a dream collaboration that you have in the near future or?I’d love to write a song with Paolo Nutini. I’ve loved all of his albums so far and I love his voice. He was born in Scotland, I was also born in Scotland. I’ve always wanted to meet him, but he doesn’t really gig or do many shows. I’ve never actually seen him live and he’s one of my favorite artists. Every time I look online, he’s not doing anything. I feel like I’ve missed out. I should’ve gone when he was gigging, but hopefully he’ll come back with an album in another two years after like five years, whatever its been and it’ll be absolutely banging and he’ll go out and do a tour and I might hopefully see him on the circuit one day.The Shadowboxers On Working With Justin Timberlake, Covers & New MusicRead morelast_img read more

Rohingyas going nowhere as cash crunch looms

first_imgIn this file photo taken on 23 November, 2017 a Rohingya refugee woman walks with a child in the Balukhali refugee camp in the Bangladeshi district of Ukhia. Photo: AFPWith a repatriation plan in tatters and funding evaporating for a million refugees with ever-growing needs, Rohingya Muslims who fled Myanmar to Bangladesh face a grim future one year after the latest eruption of a decades-old conflict.Raids by Rohingya militants on 25 August last year across Myanmar’s Rakhine state spurred an army crackdown which the United Nations has likened to “ethnic cleansing”.Around 700,000 of the Muslim minority fled by foot or boat to Bangladesh, their villages ablaze behind them, in an exodus unprecedented in speed and scale.The crisis has heaped enormous pressure on Bangladesh’s impoverished Cox’s Bazar district, which already hosted around 300,000 of the stateless group.Myanmar says it is ready to take those who fled back.But it refuses to recognise the Rohingya as citizens, falsely labelling them “Bengali” illegal immigrants.A deal between Myanmar and Bangladesh to start sending them back has also gone nowhere, caught up in bureaucracy and mistrust, with fewer than 200 having been repatriated so far.Myanmar’s civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi this week said it was up to Bangladesh “to decide how quickly” repatriation can be done, while insisting the “terrorist threat” posed by Rohingya militants remains “real and present”.Without safety, citizenship and compensation for homes and land torched or commandeered by the army since they fled, the Rohingya do not want to go back.- Funding crunch -But life in the camps, among the most densely populated places on earth, looks set to get harder.A UN-led appeal for around $1 billion to fund the refugees until March has yielded only a third of that sum.The slow response has alarmed experts.”Giving generally peaks in that first year (of a crisis)… then it’s much harder to fund,” Peter Salama, the emergency response chief of the World Health Organization (WHO), told AFP.Myanmar border guard police patrol the fence in the `no man`s land` zone between Myanmar and Bangladesh border as seen from Maungdaw, Rakhine state during a government-organized visit for journalists on 24 August, 2018. Photo: AFPWithout a major cash injection, “remarkable” success in controlling outbreaks of diphtheria, cholera and other diseases could be undone, he said, and provision of non-life saving help — such as family planning and mental health — will likely evaporate.”Bangladesh’s government really deserves more regional and international solidarity and support,” he added.The World Bank has pledged $500 million to help with infrastructure, health and education of the Cox’s region.But Bangladesh is tiring of its role as host and insists it will soon relocate around 100,000 Rohingya from Cox’s to a remote, flood-prone island.- ‘History of darkness’ -Myanmar has driven out its Rohingya since the late 1970s.”Our history is of darkness,” said Mohammed Kashim, 27, one of thousands of Rohingya refugees born in Bangladesh, but denied citizenship by both countries.”I have never stepped on Myanmar soil.”And he probably never will.First he must be “verified” as someone who belongs in Myanmar — near impossible given he was born outside the country.Refugees who are verified are required to take a ‘NVC’ card that does not grant them full citizenship or rights.Myanmar is unrepentant about last year’s crackdown and denies widespread human rights violations, murders, rapes and mass arson of Rohingya villages despite reams of evidence.But international pressure for accountability is mounting.Last week Washington hit four Myanmar military commanders and two infantry divisions with punitive financial sanctions over rights abuses and “ethnic cleansing”.The UN Security Council is set to meet next week to discuss the issue, while testimony is being gathered across the camps to press the International Criminal Court (ICC) into launching proceedings against Mynamar.”There is finally a recognition (in Myanmar) that they cannot merely outlast the opprobrium,” Aaron Connelly from the Lowy Institute think tank told AFP.But Myanmar is shielded at the UN by ally China, a permanent member of the Security Council. Meanwhile state media reported that the Myanmar military’s Commander-in-Chief was in Russia — another permanent member — on the eve of the anniversary of a crackdown he ordered.- Security high in Rakhine -Myanmar has remade northern Rakhine state without the Rohingya, redistributing land and building new security posts.It has built massive “transit” camps — some with room for 30,000 — for any returnees.Rohingya refugees fear without citizenship those camps will become permanent, like the ones holding 129,000 Rohingya since 2012.”We are citizens by birth,” said Nay Lin Aung, 35, among hundreds of Rohingya living on a patch of no-man’s land between the two countries.”We won’t go back as they (Myanmar) are not calling us with a sincere mind.”Inside Rakhine fear, tension and hatred are razor sharp.”Both communities (of remaining Rohinya and ethnic Rakhine Buddhists) have their worries now… so the government has reinforced security,” ahead of the anniversary said Ye Htoo, deputy administrator of Maungdaw district on a government-steered trip to Rakhine this week.last_img

Baltimore Mourns the Death of The Godfather DJ Reggie Reg at 50

first_imgDJ Reggie Reg (Twitter Photo)Hundreds of mourners crowded the sanctuary of the Empowerment Temple in West Baltimore Feb. 12 to honor DJ Reggie Reg Calhoun, former 92Q mix master and icon of the local music scene. The “unofficial mayor of Baltimore” died Feb. 6 of congestive heart failure at St. Agnes Hospital. He was 50 years old.“Our hearts are heavy but we know he’s resting well,” the deejay’s former employer WERQ-FM (better known as 92Q) said in a statement on the station’s website. Radio One, the owner of the station, also hosted a Feb. 8 candlelight vigil in his honor.Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake also expressed her condolences and hailed Calhoun’s musical legacy, saying, “I was terribly saddened to hear of Reggie Reg’s passing. He was one of the best DJ’s of my generation, with a personality bigger than life. He will definitely be missed.”Born Reginald Calhoun Nov. 5, 1965, to Melinda Calhoun and Charles Wright, Reggie Reg was raised on the 1800 block of N. Payson St. He attended Matthew A. Henson Elementary School, Booker T. Washington Middle school,  and Walbrook High School.Even before his high school graduation in 1983, however, Calhoun was already honing his skills as a disc jockey. The teenager was initiated into the art by Skeet T of MixMasters. And,  while in school, he spun records on WEBB-AM along with DJ Spen, Kool Rod, Kevin Liles (who went on to become a Def Jam executive), DJ Junie Jam and Big Moses, collectively known as Numarx.Calhoun was later mentored by the likes of Frank “Ski” Rodriguez—one of the pioneers of Baltimore club music, a former WERQ DJ and a dominant force on Baltimore’s radio airwaves in the 1990s.DJ Reggie Reg (Facebook Photos)By the time Calhoun joined WERQ in the mid-1990s—where he remained for a decade—he was already a “force to be reckoned with” in the entertainment arena, friends and family said. His groundbreaking mixes of hip-hop, house and song samples along with his ear for emerging talent transformed urban radio and the local club scene, they said. And he was an avid promoter of the local music and an event organizer and host.Zeke Marshall, former Cornell University basketball star, said he knew Calhoun from their mutual membership at Christian Memorial Church and their involvement in events such as Easter plays.“Reggie Reg pioneered the hard work that it took for music professionals [to] get their due,” he said in a tribute on Facebook. Marshall went on to call Calhoun the “Angel of Baltimore,” and “the true Mr. Baltimore City.”“You did all that you could for your city, church, friends and most important your family…. No matter what block, hood, church, club, house or school party event he would be there.”Calhoun also influenced another generation of disc jockeys, who dubbed him “The Godfather.”  He nurtured the careers of radio personalities and DJ’s such as Kenny K, Big Tony, Mike Crosby, K-Swift, Squirrel Wyde, DJ Unique, DJ Boobie and many more.“Reggie was a pioneer in Baltimore radio and paved the way for many who came behind him,” said former Baltimore mayor Sheila Dixon in a statement on her website. “My heartfelt condolences and prayers go out to Reggie’s…family, colleagues, friends and to the city of Baltimore for such a great loss.”Calhoun is survived by his daughter, Jazzy Calhoun and a stepson, George Alford, both of Baltimore; two brothers, James Kevin Henson of Philadelphia and Melvin Henson of Baltimore; sister, Betty Covington and mother, Melinda Turner, of Baltimore.last_img read more

MCU News Venom in the MCU Maybe Casting Hemsworth and McAvoy Shaves

first_imgStay on target That’s hilarious. If it’s any consolation, this may be the last X-Men movie of the current series, so McAvoy can probably give those clippers a rest after Dark Phoenix wraps. At least until that Split sequel happens.Let us know how we’re doing What to Expect From the Marvel Cinematic Universe at SDCC 2019The Cinematic Sex of Marvel’s Netflix Universe It’s ‘illegal’ for Marvel actors to appear in DC films. #ChrisHemsworth #Supanova— Tyler James (@Tyler_Cull3n) June 18, 2017That appears to contradict what Kevin Feige told The Hollywood Reporter two months ago. After it was announced that Josh Brolin would play both Cable and Thanos (technically two different series/universes), Feige said there’s nothing in Marvel contracts preventing actors from taking any other role. That, plus all the recent talk about how there’s no rivalry between Marvel and DC makes Hemsworth’s reported comments odd. It’s possible he was just being hyperbolic. There may not be anything legally preventing an actor from working for both studios, but they may fell a strong sense of loyalty to Marvel. That would be especially understandable in Hemsworth’s case, considering Thor is what made him a household name. We may never know exactly what he meant, but we’ll be on the lookout for any clarification from Hemsworth or Marvel over the next few days.Finally, over in the X-Men series, James McAvoy announced his return to the role of Professor Charles Xavier on Instagram. McAvoy will appear in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which will hopefully make us forget X-Men III: The Last Stand ever happened. McAvoy has been great as a younger Professor X, and his return is fantastic news. It’s not quite as fantastic though, as the way he announced it. Just watch. Spider-Man is in an increasingly weird position as far as cinematic universes are concerned. We start here with our MCU news. Though some legal acrobatics, he is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe even though Sony still owns his movie rights. Sony is using the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming to launch their own Spider-verse of movies that will include Venom and Black C:Lat and Silver Sable. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently stated that Venom would not be part of the MCU. Yes, it’s weird that that leaves Spider-Man straddling two universes, but that was it.Now Sony, showing all the confidence of a studio launching a new cinematic universe into a world that is growing tired of them, appears to be trying to attach their Spider-verse to Marvel’s MCU. In an interview with Filmstarts, former head of Sony Amy Pascal described the upcoming Spider-verse movies as “adjunct” to the MCU.“Well, those movies will all take place in the world that we’re now creating for Peter Parker,” she said. “They’ll be adjuncts to it, they may be different locations, but it will all be in the same world, and they’ll be connected to each other as well.” She also said that Tom Holland could make an appearance in the movies as Spider-Man.It’s obvious why Sony would want to approach their movies like this. Marvel has been the only company to make the cinematic universe idea work. Warner Bros. and DC, outside of a recent major triumph, has struggled. And Universal’s Dark Universe… well, it’s not off to a great start. If you’re trying to launch yet another cinematic universe in 2017, it makes sense to try and attach your wagon to the only successful one. Of course, there’s no official deal in place, so Venom will not truly be part of the MCU. They can say they’re set in the same world all they want, but they won’t be able to interact with, affect or be affected by the MCU like Marvel Studios’ own movies can. They can still be good movies, but they won’t be MCU. No matter how much Sony wants us to think they are.Chris Hemsworth in Thor: Ragnarok. (Photo: Screenshot via YouTube/Marvel Studios)In other, less confusing news, Chris Hemsworth appeared at the Supernova Comic Con in Sydney, Australia, and had some very interesting things to say about what’s next in the MCU. The Infinity Stones have played major roles in the most recent MCU movies. Five of them so far have shown up, but fans have been wondering when we’d see the sixth. According to Reddit user lawrensaw, who was in the audience during the Q&A, we won’t have to wait too long. “Chris does know where the soul gem is and we’ll find out real soon,” they wrote.That probably means the stone will show up in Thor: Ragnarok, which comes out November 3, 2017. Since that movie features Hela, the goddess of death, it’s a logical place for the Soul Gem to make its first appearance before Avengers: Infinity War. Hemsworth also reportedly commented on the apparent difference in tone between the previous Thor movies and Ragnarok. Hemsworth said that during production, neither he nor director Taika Waititi liked where the character was going, and made some major changes for Ragnarok. So far, it seems to have worked. After that fun trailer, this is the most excited I’ve been for any Thor movie.Another curious comment Hemsworth made involved actors working in both Marvel and DC movies. According to Twitter user Tyler James, Hemsworth said it’s “illegal for actors to be in both universes.last_img read more

CM slams Shuklas reply over RBIs NPA writeoff

first_imgKolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has reacted sharply to the answer given by Shiv Pratap Shukla, Minister of State for Finance, regarding writing off of Non-Performing Assets by the Reserve Bank of India.The question on whether Rs 2.4 lakh crore of Public Sector Banks (PSBs) crony corporate loans have been written off by the present Union government till September 2017, was raised by Ritabrata Bandyopadhyay, expelled CPI-M Rajya Sabha MP on Tuesday. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsBanerjee tweeted: “I am shocked to see that at a time when the farmers in the country are crying and committing suicide for their loan burden and asking for waiver of farmer loans, the government of India has not even considered that.”On the contrary, the government of India has decided to write off non-performing assets of public sector banks to the tune of Rs 2,41,911 crore, from the financial year 2014-15 till September 2017.”This is unbelievable. We had raised the issue of non-performing assets right at the time of demonetisation. Now the cat is out of the bag and reality bites. Even in Parliament reply, the government says that the details of credit information by a PSB cannot be disclosed. Why is this confidentiality? Whom is the government trying to protect? We demand immediate disclosure of the complete list of defaulters of PSBs whose loans have been written off. Is it not a big big big scam?” the Chief Minister said.Welcoming Banerjee’s tweet, Bandyopadhyay tweeted: “There’s the Bengal tigress. Always loud and clear for the people’s rights.
