“There is a growing consensus, both within communities and among States, that drug control is a shared responsibility, in which we all play a part,” Mr. Ban said in a message marking the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, observed each year on 26 June.Today there was a better understanding of how to confront drug abuse and trafficking, he noted. “Policymakers can draw on a growing body of evidence about drug dependence and drug-use trends. International cooperation and technical assistance are improving law enforcement capabilities.“Increased development assistance is helping to reduce poverty and the sale of illicit crops by giving farmers sustainable alternatives. A stronger focus on prevention and treatment is putting health at the centre of drug-control strategies and helping to slow the spread of HIV/AIDS,” he stated.But there was still more work to do. “States with weak criminal justice systems and limited law enforcement capabilities need assistance to reduce illicit drug trafficking, which spreads crime, corruption and instability, and which ultimately endangers the successful realization of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs),” the Secretary-General said, referring to the set of global anti-poverty targets world leaders pledged to achieve by 2015. Mr. Ban also reminded States of their responsibility to fully respect the rights of prisoners who are drug-dependent or are in custody for drug-related crimes, especially their rights to life and a fair trial. In addition, he urged them to ensure that people who are struggling with drug addiction be given equal access to health and social services. “No one should be stigmatized or discriminated against because of their dependence on drugs,” he stressed.Also today the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is launching the 2008 World Drug Report, which shows that recent progress in drug control is under threat by a surge in opium and coca cultivation and the risk of higher drug use in developing countries. 26 June 2008Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today stressed the shared role of all members of society in preventing and reducing the damage caused by drugs, which he said destroy lives, generate crime and threaten sustainable development. read more

first_imgYesterday Fluor Corp marked the 100th anniversary of the company’s founding in 1912. In the 1880s, John Simon Fluor Sr., emigrated from Switzerland and came to the USA as a young man to pursue a dream. 100 years later, Fluor encompasses some 45,000 employees executing tough, complex and challenging projects on six continents. “I doubt when Si Fluor came to this country all those years ago that he had any inkling of what his dream would become,” said David Seaton, Fluor’s Chairman and CEO. “When he came to the US, he was equipped only with the skilled hands of a guild trained craftsman, his knowhow and a passion to build. He used all of those traits to forge his new venture.”“Today, Fluor’s global workforce is proud to partner with many of the world’s best known and largest industrial enterprises helping them realise their capital projects that increase the quality of life and living standards,” continued Seaton. “While the tools we use and the projects we execute have changed considerably over the last ten decades, the passion to build of our employees has only increased.”As part of the 100th anniversary celebration, Fluor held a global employee event over the weekend at 14 locations around the globe. This event was satellite broadcast on Saturday, April 21, from the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas, Texas, to locations on six continents. The one-night event brought together approximately 20,000 employees, the most ever in the company’s history.This weekend’s kickoff event was celebrated simultaneously with North America office personnel from Dallas; Southern California; Greenville, South Carolina; Houston; Vancouver and Calgary. Europe-based offices from Farnborough, England and Haarlem, Netherlands participated as well as employees in Johannesburg, South Africa; Perth, Australia; Santiago, Chile; New Delhi, India; Manila, Philippines; and Shanghai, China.Fluor designs, builds and maintains many of the world’s most challenging and complex projects. Founded in 1912, John Simon Fluor Sr. started the company with a modest investment of $100. Since those humble beginnings, the company has grown into one of the largest engineering & construction companies in the world. www.fluor100.comlast_img read more

first_img 963 Views By Michael Kelly WE’VE BEEN ENJOYING the first consistent supply of fresh beetroot from the veg patch over the last week.I do three sowings of beets each year to try and get a year-round supply of this wonderful vegetable. The final sowing, generally done in late June or early July, is the storage crop which will be harvested in late September or October and stored in a box of sand in the garage.Generally speaking these will store for 4-5 months. I will be doing that final sowing in a module tray in the coming week.The fresh ones from the garden are a little small still, but that’s pretty much the perfect size for them. Just a little bigger than a golf ball is about right. Any bigger and they get somewhat woody.My favourite method of cooking beetroot is in a tinfoil parcel, with the skins on. This way you retain all the nutrition inside, rather than boiling it out of them as you do when cooking them in water. When beetroot are really fresh, the skins will rub off under a cold tap after cooking.In previous years I would generally add some balsamic and olive oil to them (and maybe some goats or blue cheese), but I like them better “naked” these days so I can really savour the earthy flavour. At this time of the year, when they are young and tender they taste truly exquisite.The beauty of beetroot is their versatility Source: Shutterstock/Yakimova ElenaIn addition to cooking them, you can also eat them raw, grated for a slaw. Or you can make them in to ketchup like our chef does at GROW HQ (when we don’t have any tomatoes).Don’t forget the stems are also edible too. You can chop them up and saute them slowly with some red onions for a quick and easy accompaniment to some good quality sausages or steak. And of course, I will always pick through the leaves before discarding and take the smaller ones for a colourful addition to a salad.The slaw recipe below is something I made up yesterday to deal with some vegetables that I had just harvested. Some beautiful kohlrabi from the polytunnel (thriving this year) and believe it or not, some of last year’s carrots that I only managed to dig out the dregs of yesterday. Most of them were unusable as they had run to seed and started to rot in the ground. But I found one or two adequate specimens.I also added a baby green onion to it, which was delicious. A green onion is an immature onion, picked before it’s ready – they pack an immense flavour punch and you can use them as you would a scallion, stalk and all. I suppose the combination of an over-ripe and under-ripe vegetable in the dish gives it some balance.I love preparing food that way, experimenting with whatever the season and the garden has provided, rather than starting with a recipe and then going shopping. It’s an altogether healthier and more delicious approach.The Basics – Sowing BeetrootI generally do three sowings of beetroot. The first in March for an early polytunnel crop, the second in April for outside, and the final sowing in July for winter storage. Though beetroot will do well sown direct in the soil, I find slug damage can be an issue as the little seedlings emerge. So as is often the case, I think it’s more successful if sown in module trays first and then planted out later.Germination is in about 10 days and you will have roots to eat in about 3 months. Sow one seed in each module of the module tray. Bear in mind that a beetroot seed is actually a “cluster” of up to five seeds, so you may need to thin out if they all germinate.When planting out (about a month after sowing), plant them 4 inches apart in rows about 12 inches apart. Beetroot likes a deep, sandy soil, manured the previous winter. Apply organic fertiliser about a week before sowing.Recipe of the Week – Kohlrabi, Carrot and Green Onion Slaw Source: Shutterstock/elenamychThis recipe will keep in the fridge for a few days. You could do it without the mayo or yogurt to make it vegan, but I find that just a small amount brings it all together nicely.Serves 3-4.Ingredients1 medium kohlrabi1 carrot1 green onionA handful of walnutsA handful of raisinsJuice of one lemon2 tbs of mayonnaise or natural yoghurtDirectionsPeel and grate the kohlrabi and the carrot and put in a large bowl. Chop the green onion and add it to the bowl with the walnuts and the raisins.Add the juice of the lemon and the mayo and stir well to combine it all. Season to taste. You could also add a little handful of chopped parsley.Michael Kelly is founder of GIY and GROW HQ. Click here for more GIY tips and recipes.

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享NEW YORK (AP) — Toys R Us is headed toward shuttering its U.S. operations, jeopardizing the jobs of some 30,000 employees while spelling the end for a chain known to generations of children and parents for its sprawling stores and Geoffrey the giraffe mascot. Brandon said on the recording that the company would be filing liquidation papers and there would be a bankruptcy court hearing Thursday. It wasn’t able to compete with a growing Amazon: The toy seller said in bankruptcy filings that Amazon’s low prices were hard to match. And it said its Babies R Us chain lost customers to the online retailer’s convenient subscription service, which let parents receive diapers and baby formula at their doorstep automatically. Toys R Us blamed its “old technology” for not offering its own subscriptions. Brandon said Toys R Us will try to bundle its Canadian business, with about 200 stores, and find a buyer. The company’s U.S. online store would still be running for the next couple of weeks in case there’s a buyer for it. The chain filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last fall, saddled with $5 billion in debt that hurt its attempts to compete as shoppers moved to Amazon and huge chains like Walmart. But Toys R U’s biggest albatross was its massive debt load since private-equity firms Bain Capital, KKR & Co. and Vornado Realty Trust took it private in a $6.6 billion leveraged buyout in 2005. The plan had been to take the company public again, but weak sales have prevented that from happening. With such debt levels, Toys R Us did not have the financial flexibility to invest in its business. The company closed its flagship store in Manhattan’s Times Square, a huge tourist destination that featured its own Ferris wheel, about two years ago. “We worked as hard and as long as we could to turn over every rock,” Brandon told employees. He put much of the blame on its woes on the media, saying negative stories about the company’s prospects scared customers and vendors. It pledged then to stay open, but Brandon told employees that it had a “devastating” sales performance during the critical holiday season as nervous customers and vendors shied away. That made its lenders more skittish about investing in the company. In January, it announced plans to close about 180 stores over the next couple of months, leaving it with a little more than 700 stores. “Amazon may pick up the dollars, but won’t deliver the experience needed for a toy retailer to survive and thrive in today’s market,” said Marc Rosenberg, a toy marketing executive. Toys R Us had about 60,000 full-time and part-time employees worldwide last year. The company didn’t do enough to emphasize that it was reorganizing but not going out of business, Silver said. That misperception led customers to its stores because they didn’t think they would be able to return gifts. But the company lost ground to discounters like Target and Walmart, and then to Amazon, as even nostalgic parents sought deals elsewhere. GlobalData Retail estimates that nearly 14 percent of toy sales were made online in 2016, more than double the level five years ago. Toys R Us still has hundreds of stores, and analysts estimate it still sells about 20 percent of the toys bought in the United States. Toys R Us was also hurt by the shift to mobile devices taking up more play time. But steep sales declines over the holidays and thereafter were the deciding factor, said Jim Silver, who is editor-in-chief of toy review site The closing of the company’s 740 U.S. stores over the coming months will finalize the downfall of the chain that succumbed to heavy debt and relentless trends that undercut its business, from online shopping to mobile games. Now, the $11 billion in sales still happening at Toys R Us each year will disperse to other retailers like Amazon and discounters, analysts say. Other chains, seeing that Toys R Us was vulnerable, got more aggressive. J.C. Penney opened toy sections last fall in all 875 stores. Target and Walmart have been expanding their toy selections. Even Party City is building up its toy offerings. CEO David Brandon told employees Wednesday the company’s plan is to liquidate all of its U.S. stores, according to an audio recording of the meeting obtained by The Associated Press. Toys R Us had dominated the toy store business in the 1980s and early 1990s, when it was one of the first of the “category killers”— a store totally devoted to one thing. Its scale gave it leverage with toy sellers and it disrupted general merchandise stores and mom-and-pop shops. Children sang along with commercials about “the biggest toy store there is.” It’s likely to also liquidate its businesses in Australia, France, Poland, Portugal and Spain, according to the recording. It’s already shuttering its business in the United Kingdom. That would leave it with stores in Canada, central Europe and Japan, where it could find buyers for those assets. The Wayne, New Jersey-based company declined to comment. The company’s troubles have affected toy makers Mattel and Hasbro, which are big suppliers to the chain. But the likely liquidation will have a bigger impact on smaller toy makers, who rely more on the chain for sales. However, many have been trying to diversify in recent months as they worried about the chain’s survival. In filing for bankruptcy protection last fall, Toys R Us pledged to make its stores more interactive. It added demonstrators for the holiday season to show people how toys work, and began opening Play Labs at 42 stores, areas where children can play with different items.last_img read more

He agreed to be part of it since the makers paid him a handsome amount and considered all his conditions.”Bigg Boss is not my kind of show, it never was. They had approached me six times before and I had put down my conditions, which they never met. The seventh time when I actually went was the only time they agreed to all the conditions including the big money I asked for,” he said.Further, Gaurav said that feels sorry for the viewers who fall for all the drama that happens inside the house and take it seriously. He also finds it silly as viewers engage in Twitter wars for months. “I find it petty. And I don’t like the fact that the audience is taken for a ride and manipulated. I feel bad that the audience is so naive that they fall for what happens on screen. There are people who are just trying to attract attention. People say things they feel in the moment. Nothing is real,” Gaurav said.The actor concluded saying that Bigg Boss is constructed for business and TRP purpose and advised fans to “Watch it, enjoy it but don’t fall for it.”Gaurav is currently gearing up for his new show Aghori, where he will play the role of Ishan.
