first_imgOTTAWA — The Canada Border Services Agency will soon force all border-security officers working with detained migrants to wear defensive gear, drawing widespread concern over a perceived “criminalization” of asylum-seekers.The mandatory equipment includes batons, pepper spray and bulletproof vests.The national policy was adopted internally last year after CBSA began moving what it deems “higher-risk immigration detainees” from provincial jails, where they were being held for security purposes, into one of the agency’s three immigration holding centres.Information obtained under access-to-information law shows the agency decided all officers working in these centres must be outfitted in protective and defensive equipment to ensure a common operational approach.But the changes have sparked concern this will create an environment in immigration detention centres akin to jail conditions and create a perception that all detained migrants in Canada are “criminals” worthy of punishment.A group of doctors, lawyers, legal scholars and human-rights organizations have called on Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale to cancel the policy — calls they say have been ignored.Teresa Wright, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Jan Eliasson is due to arrive in Khartoum to start several days of consultations in the capital, as well as in Darfur itself and in the southern Sudanese town of Juba, where some of the rebel movements are based.The consultations represent the latest step in the efforts of the UN and AU to broker a peace accord to quell the violence and humanitarian suffering in Darfur, where more than 200,000 people have been killed and at least 2.2 million others displaced since rebels began fighting Government forces and allied militia known as the Janjaweed in 2003. The UN and AU are deploying a hybrid peacekeeping mission (known as UNAMID) to Darfur at the start of next year to take over from the existing but under-resourced AU mission (AMIS). However, objections and obstacles raised by the Sudanese Government and a lack of offers for critical force units have left the deployment in jeopardy, senior UN officials warned last week.Today Mr. Eliasson and AU envoy Salim Ahmed Salim have been in the Egyptian town of Sharm el-Sheikh for talks with representatives of Chad, Egypt, Eritrea and Libya, the regional partners to the peace process.The two envoys briefed the four countries on the latest developments in the three-part peace process, which began in late October with formal talks in Sirte, Libya, and then moved into a second phase last month with consultations and meetings with some of Darfur’s various and often splintered movements. The third phase aims to bring the movements together with the Government for full talks on the key issues, including power-sharing, wealth-sharing, the humanitarian situation and security conditions.While in Sharm el-Sheikh, Mr. Eliasson told UN Radio that he “cannot hide that we are in a difficult situation,” adding that “we are seeing certain negative developments in the level of violence both inside Darfur, but above all in [neighbouring eastern] Chad.”Mr. Eliasson also stressed that the Government and the movements must do all in their power to facilitate a political process leading to a resolution of the deadly conflict.Meanwhile, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Sudan, Ashraf Qazi, is heading to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to represent the UN at a ministerial-level meeting tomorrow on Sudan.The meeting, convened by United States Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, is being held to discuss the implementation of the January 2005 comprehensive peace agreement that ended the long-running north-south civil war in Sudan.The parties to the agreement – the Sudanese Government and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) – are expected to attend, as well as representatives of the UN, the AU and regional partners to that peace process. 4 December 2007The United Nations Special Envoy for Darfur heads to Sudan tomorrow for talks with all sides to the four-year conflict as the UN and the African Union continue their joint mediation efforts to expedite preparations for direct negotiations between the Sudanese Government and rebel movements. read more

“I sense there is a real seriousness now to negotiate,” Yvo de Boer, Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), said today in the Danish capital, where nations are expected to wrap up talks on a new agreement during the two-week gathering.He told reporters that he sees an “emerging” agreement, with countries wanting to see a new technical mechanism, including an executive body overseeing technological development and transfer, result from the conference.Further, Mr. de Boer noted there is a growing consensus to set up a consultative network for climate technologies which would support developing nations’ efforts to take action on both adaptation and mitigation.He also stressed that the Kyoto Protocol, whose first commitment period expires in 2012, must remain in force.It took eight years from the time the instrument was ratified to when it entered into force. Even if an agreement is reached in Copenhagen, “you can’t guarantee how quickly it will enter into force and I think it’s important to avoid a gap,” the official said.Also, as many developing nations have pointed out, he said, the Protocol is the only legally binding instrument currently in force on climate change. “There is no good reason at this moment to abandon it,” he said. “What there is good reason for is to come to a new process under the convention that engages the United States and allows for broader participation of developing countries and that really stimulates action now up to 2012 and beyond.”Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon reiterated his call on nations to “seize the moment” to reach a deal in Copenhagen.In a message to a Summiteers’ Summit to Save the Himalayas in the Danish capital, he said that he sees hopeful signs.“Never have so many different nations of all sizes and economic status made so many firm pledges together,” Mr. Ban said, exhorting countries to “continue pushing higher for still higher ambition.”He warned that if the world continues on its present course, climate change will roll back years of successes in development and poverty reduction, among other areas.For the world’s humanitarian community, at the Copenhagen summit, “the focus should be on adaptation,” not just on mitigation, or the reduction of emissions, John Holmes, the top UN relief official, said at a press conference in New York today.“We’re not talking about something that may or may not happen in 50 years’ time or 20 year’s time,” he said. “We’re talking about something which is happening now.”Mr. Holmes, the Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, called for countries to provide funding for adaptation, with a large proportion of those resources being earmarked for disaster risk reduction.In a related development, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) partnered with Brazil’s National Institute for Space Institute (INPE) to monitor greenhouse gas emissions as part of a push to help developing countries monitor their impact on climate change.Forest monitoring is a key element of UN-REDD, an initiative aimed at combating climate change by creating incentives for poorer countries to reverse the trend of deforestation and invest in more sustainable forms of development.Many developing countries will have to invest in monitoring systems before joining a UN-REDD mechanism, but the systems in these nations are often not accurate enough for the measurement, reporting and verification of forest carbon stocks.INPE’s work paves the way for large-scale monitoring of deforestation and forest degradation to provide accurate information to the public, and the same data and systems will be available to other countries to allow them to advance their own monitoring. 10 December 2009Negotiators at the historic United Nations climate change conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, are making good progress in the area of technology, a senior official with the world body said today. read more

Ambassador Moctar Ouane of Mali, the current President of the Council, said in a press statement that the 15-member body valued the efforts made by the Government of Papua New Guinea to integrate into its constitution the amendments resulting from the Peace Agreement and it encouraged the Government to pursue this endeavour.In recalling the important role played by the United Nations Political Office in Bougainville, Council members underlined the need for a continuation of its activities, Ambassador Ouane said. They also noted that the Office’s mandate now included weapons collection and disposal, as outlined by Secretary-General Kofi Annan.Council members also “welcomed the work of the Peace Monitoring Group in support of the UN Political Office in Bougainville and the establishment of the UN Trust Fund to support the weapons disposal process,” Ambassador Ouane said. “In this regard, the members of the Council encouraged the parties to implement as soon as possible the provisions of the Peace Agreement relating to the weapons collection and disposal plan, as a vital step to implementing the Bougainville Agreement and achieving lasting peace.”The weapons disposal plan is one pillar to the 30 August Peace Agreement, which lays out a blueprint for autonomy for Bougainville and a referendum to decide its future. read more

“Thick acrid smoke rising from stoves and fires inside homes is associated with around 1.6 million deaths per year in developing countries – that’s one life lost every 20 seconds to the killer in the kitchen,” the UN World Health Organization (WHO) and the UN Development Programme (UNDP) said in a message to mark World Rural Women’s Day on 15 October. Cleaner gases, liquids and electricity are currently the main alternatives but the WHO-backed Global Partnership for Clean Indoor Air is also coordinating research into cleaner fuels, stoves and smoke hoods.In the meantime, nearly half the world still cooks with wood, agricultural residues, coal and dried dung, according to the agencies. “Smoke from burning these fuels gives off a poisonous cocktail of particles and chemicals that bypasses the body’s defences and more than doubles the risk of respiratory illnesses such as bronchitis and pneumonia,” they said.Poor rural women typically spend up to three mornings a week collecting fuel, denying themselves the opportunity of looking for paid work to raise family incomes, improve living standards and improve their nutrition and health, WHO and UNDP said. In some circumstances, such as the ethnic crisis in Darfur, Sudan, “the chore has taken on a perilous dimension following the rape, kidnap, beatings and murder of women leaving refugee camps to search for wood.”The two institutions called on governments, civil society and the aid community to pay the same attention to the “killer in the kitchen” as they pay to other major threats. read more

Responding to press questions, Stephane Dujarric said Detlev Mehlis, head of the UN International Independent Investigation Commission, is in New York finalizing the report.Mr. Mehlis is expected to meet Secretary-General Kofi Annan tomorrow, and his report could go to the Security Council as early as Friday, the spokesman said. Mr. Mehlis will then brief the Council on the report next Tuesday, 25 October.Prime Minister Hariri was killed in a bomb attack that also took the lives of 20 others on 14 February. The Council set up the Commission to probe the killing after an initial UN fact-finding mission found Lebanon’s own probe seriously flawed and declared Syria, with its troops present, primarily responsible for the political tension preceding the assassination. read more

UPDATE (Nov. 29, 3:52 p.m.): The interactive tables above have been updated to include the results of Thursday’s match-ups, and those games has been removed (the text of the article has not been updated).Turkey and football is an annual tradition. Turkey and meaningful football is a treat. So be thankful this year: When ranked by total playoff “swing” — a measure of how much each game affects the playoff picture1As measured by the cumulative amount of playoff probability at stake — three of the top four Week 13 games will take place on Thanksgiving.When the Chicago Bears visit the Detroit Lions in the first Thanksgiving Day game, the stakes are straightforward. The Bears are largely out of playoff contention, so all affected teams do better with a Lions loss — excluding the Lions, of course.You don’t need a complicated statistical model to tell you that the next game, between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys, will have huge implications for the NFC East title race. Going into the game, the Eagles have a slight edge on the Cowboys, with a 55 percent chance to win the division. A win in Dallas would increase its division title chances to 82 percent; a loss would drop it to 36 percent. Outside of the NFC East, the Green Bay Packers would prefer an Eagles victory, and the 49ers would prefer a Cowboys victory.2The Packers own the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Eagles, and the 49ers own the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Cowboys.Thursday night’s game between the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers will have significant playoff implications, but probably not in the way envisioned when the schedule was drawn up. The NFC West title isn’t at stake; the Arizona Cardinals have crashed the divisional party this year. Arizona holds a two-game lead over both Seattle and San Francisco. The Lions, Cowboys and Eagles will all be rooting for a San Francisco loss. And though Arizona’s playoff chances are better with a 49ers loss, its division title chances are better with a Seattle loss.We’ll let the charts do the talking for the rest of Week 13’s games. The most meaningful non-Turkey Day game is between the New Orleans Saints and the Pittsburgh Steelers, with more than 90 percentage points of playoff probability on the line. But, to close out this column, we thought we’d highlight some of the more interesting (or infuriating, depending upon your perspective) playoff scenarios that emerged from the 50,000 simulations that form the basis for this weekly feature. You can try your own hand at this with ESPN’s excellent Playoff Machine tool. But the scenarios below at least have a veneer of statistical plausibility.In last week’s column, we mentioned there were five simulations in which a five-win team won the NFC South. With losses from both the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans last week, there are now 107 simulations in which a five-win team wins the NFC South, amounting to an 0.2 percent probability.3Of those 107 simulations, 89 resulted in a Carolina Panthers division title, and 18 resulted in a title for Atlanta.There were 2,029 instances (4 percent probability) in which an 11-win team did not make the playoffs. The Cowboys and the Eagles are the two teams most likely to suffer that fate.There were seven simulations in which a five-win team made the playoffs and an 11-win team did not.There were two simulations in which all four AFC North teams finished with 11 wins.A five-win division winner hosting a 12-win wild card team? That happened nine times in our simulations. read more

first_imgSimple precautions can be taken to avoid such problems, obviously. If you take your dog out during the good weather, make sure to bring along water for the journey.If your pet is staying indoors owners should avoid leaving dogs alone in conservatories or glass environments as these tend to be much warmer than other parts of the house.If your dog enjoys lying in the sun, Dogs Trust advises leaving down a wet towel so your pet can keep cool.Finally, it you’re taking the dog out for a walk, check the temperature of the ground (particularly on the beach or tarmacadam surfaces) and bear in mind that your dog’s paw pads can be burned.Other problems Recently Village Vets, which has surgeries in Dublin and Meath, saw cases of dogs suffering from vomiting and diarrhoea as a result of water bowls contaminated with insects or bird droppings.Treatment for this involves admitting the pets for up to five days to be treated with antibiotics and drips to correct dehydration.The DSPCA advised people to be “tick aware” at this time of year especially in long grassy areas, as it is easy to get an infection.Brushing can be an opportunity to check for ticks or irregularities on the skin or fur of your pet.Regular grooming of dogs’ hair during the summer is a must to avoid overheating and to make the dog more comfortable.Pet sunscreen can be found in pet stores and the DSPCA advises owners to pay particular attention exposed areas such as ears, nose and belly. Cats in the sunOther animalsCats, especially white cats, can develop get skin cancer on the tips of their ears and they require factor 50 sunscreen in these areas as they have very little hair there to protect them from the sun.In hot weather rabbits living outdoors need shade and as the sun moves their hutch should be moved to a cooler area.Village Vets suggests placing ice packs around the hutch for them to lean up against if they want to cool themselves down and advise leaving out bowls of fresh cool water for the animals to drink.Outdoor rabbits get used to hot environments and don’t need to be brought in during the heat of the day but guinea pigs need to be kept inside during high temperatures.Domestic fish tanks or reptile cages should be kept out of contact with direct sunlight and if you have other animals, like birds or hamsters, don’t leave their cages on the windowsill.

Met Éireann says the temperatures will be well into the 20s for much of the coming week.Dogs Trust is advising owners not to leave their dog in the car and to exercise them at cooler times of the day such as morning or evening. Pets can be left vulnerable to heat stroke when exposed to high temperatures for prolonged periods of time.Older or overweight animals are most at risk. In terms of breeds, owners of flat nose dogs like pugs or bulldogs need to take particular care too.Gillian Bird of the DSPCA said dogs shouldn’t be brought on long, unnecessary journeys in the car and that they should never be left alone in parked cars.In-car temperatures can soar within minutes of the air-conditioning being turned off.If you wouldn’t leave a chocolate bar or an ice-cream on the front seat of your car, Bird said, “then that is too hot for your dog”.Dogs don’t have sweat glands like humans and cannot regulate their body heat. They only lose heat by panting and it takes the animals longer to cool down.If a dog is panting rapidly or collapses from exhaustion the animal could be suffering from heat stroke. Dogs suffering severe dehydration or heat stroke require immediate medical care and fluid therapy by drip.In these extreme cases owners are advised to look out for warning signs like excessive panting; red gums and tongue; vomiting or diarrhoea.

first_imgA photograph taken on the island of Lesvos of three elderly Greek women, one of whom is holding a refugee baby, has gone viral. The image, entitled ‘Three grannies & a baby’, was taken last week by photographer Lefteris Partsalis, and uploaded on news website Rizopoulos Post.Taken in the village of Skala Sykamias, the three women are pictured sitting on a bench, as one of them holds a baby in her arms feeding it with a bottle, while its mother stands to the right. Newspaper Ethnos reported the story behind the picture, claiming the women would often sit on the bench watching coast guards and volunteers helping refugee arrivals from neighbouring Turkey.According to the publication, the women, Militsa Kamvisi, 83, Eustratia Mavrapidi, 89, and her cousin Maritsa Mavrapidi, 85, heard the baby’s cry. When they saw its mother’s failed attempts at feeding the baby, Militsa reached out to the woman.“Hey, girl, bring the baby over, I’ll feed it,” Militsa told the mother in Greek. Though she could not understand what the women was saying, the old woman’s facial expression and body language communicated her kind intentions. When Militsa took the baby in her arms, she gave it the bottle and started singing the one-month-old a lullaby, accompanied by her friends.“A mother is always a mother. I don’t see very well anymore, I don’t hear well, but still I can feed and calm down a baby,” Militsa told Ethnos.“The baby wanted security. The mother’s clothes were wet, the father was in a panic because the baby was crying. We were just sitting there and there was something we could do. My daughter told me that the picture was all over the internet; I didn’t do something extraordinary. I just wanted to help a girl in trouble.”Source: Keep Talking Greece Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

first_imgRob CrowJail cellOn the heels of a federal ruling slamming Harris County for its bail practices, civil rights lawyers have now set their sights on a county with a similar system: Dallas.Poor defendants held in the Dallas County Jail filed suit against the county on Sunday night, claiming the bail system unconstitutionally discriminates against them by holding them in jail for days or weeks while letting similar defendants with cash walk free. One plaintiff, Shannon Daves, is a 47-year-old homeless and jobless transgender woman arrested on a misdemeanor theft charge. She has been kept in solitary confinement in the men’s unit since Wednesday under a $500 misdemeanor bond she can’t afford, the lawsuit claims.“This system is really devastating for the people who can’t afford to purchase their freedom,” said Trisha Trigilio, a senior attorney at the ACLU of Texas, one of the legal groups representing the inmates. Lawyers with the Civil Rights Corps and the Texas Fair Defense Project are leading the lawsuits in both Dallas and Harris counties.Bail is a legal mechanism to ensure defendants show up to court hearings. Most jurisdictions in Texas and the country rely primarily on a money bail system, where defendants can pay a bond amount set by a fixed schedule for their release. If they can’t pay, they’re often stuck in jail. Recently, civil rights lawyers and judges have targeted money bail systems nationwide, claiming they violate poor defendant’s constitutional rights to equal protection and due process. Harris County officials and the bail bonds industry have knocked this argument, saying recent lawsuits have sought “affordable bail,” prioritizing a defendant’s ability to pay a bail bond over public safety and the likelihood of skipping court dates.In Dallas County, the plaintiffs — six indigent misdemeanor and felony defendants arrested this week — state that judicial magistrates set money bail based on the alleged crime and prior convictions without considering an inmate’s financial ability to pay or determining if non-monetary conditions of release — like an ankle monitor or cab fare voucher — could ensure the defendant show up to court. Texas law requires officials to consider financial ability when setting bail. Instead, poor inmates who have yet to be convicted usually stay in jail  because they can’t afford the bail, causing them to sometimes lose their jobs or housing, the lawsuit said. The lawsuit also argues that the threat of lengthy jail stays while awaiting trial encourages defendants to plead guilty.Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said Sunday that he wouldn’t comment on a pending lawsuit, but said the county is working to improve the system.“I support bail reform because some low-risk suspects that don’t need to be there are held in Texas jails at taxpayer expense simply because they can’t afford to bond out,” he said.Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price also pointed to the county’s efforts to reform its bail system, touting a decrease in the county jail population. As of December, there were about 5,000 inmates in the jail that has a capacity for about 8,700, according to the Texas Commission on Jail Standards.The Dallas lawsuit is similar to the one in Harris County, though the Dallas case applies to misdemeanor and felony defendants, while the suit in Harris only focuses on misdemeanors. There, a federal judge ruled last year that the practices in the state’s most populous county were unconstitutional and ordered the free release of all poor misdemeanor defendants within 24 hours of arrest. Across the nation, cities, counties and states have veered away from traditional money bail and looked to release defendants for free if they are likely to stay out of trouble and show up to court. The Texas Legislature last year tried unsuccessfully to pass a bill to rely more on these risk assessments than fixed bail schedules.Harris County implemented a risk-based system after the lawsuit over its bail practices began, but it was not enough for the judge. U.S. District Judge Lee Rosenthal said in a preliminary injunction that “wealth-based disparities” would continue under the new system, since judges don’t have to follow the risk-based recommendations of release and indigent defendants who are not deemed low-risk are still stuck with money bail.Rosenthal’s ruling is being considered in appellate court, and the underlying case has yet to be heard.When Harris County got dragged into the bail reform fight, Dallas County pretrial officials (and those at other counties in the state) began to look at their own system. Last year, county commissioners implemented policies to divert low-risk inmates and the mentally ill out of jail before trial, but the plaintiffs say very few people qualify for those types of release, even though one third of the jail population has a mental illness.Jenkins and Price both said Dallas County is working to implement a risk-assessment tool to use in its pretrial system.“The county has been making steps,” Price said, adding that the lawsuit was somewhat expected after the Harris County ruling. “We were hoping we were a lot further along in the reformation process and that the ACLU and others would see that we were making strides in that area with regards to people in custody.”Trigilio said the judges and the county officials haven’t properly acted yet.“This is a crisis that needs to be addressed immediately, and unfortunately it looks like a lawsuit is the only way to make that happen,” she said.

first_img“It’s a wonderful honor for Emina, Gaby, and Brooklynn to be named to the all-region team,” said head coach Karen Ferguson-Dayes.  “They were all outstanding in their own way this fall and are very deserving.” “Brooklynn had the breakout year we all knew she was capable of having,” said Ferguson-Dayes.  “She is a true goal scorer and found herself scoring big goals in big games for us this year! We are excited for her to build off of this year for her senior year.” Print Friendly Version Ekic was named to the first team after an impressive sophomore campaign where she earned first team All-ACC honors. In the preseason, Ekic was named preseason All-ACC and was on the Hermann Trophy Watch List.  Coming off an injury from last season, she was outstanding in ACC play this season.  Ekic, the 2017 ACC Freshman of the Year, finished the regular season with seven goals and five assists for 19 points. She helped the Cardinals score in five of the last six matches, including two game-winning goals.  She led the team with 47 shots and 22 shots on goal.  Vincent earned second team honors for the first time in her career.  The senior was a starting centerback for the Cardinals all four seasons.  She helped guide Louisville to seven shutouts this season, while dishing out one assist. Vincent also served as team captain the last two seasons and helped guide the Cardinals to their best ACC finish and an NCAA Tournament appearance in her final season. LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville’s Emina Ekic, Gabrielle Vincent and Brooklynn Rivers earned All-Atlantic Region honors by United Soccer Coaches association.  Ekic earned first team honors for the second straight season while Vincent earned second team honors and Rivers earned third team honors.  “Gaby Vincent has been our leader since the day she stepped on campus and it’s wonderful to see her senior year end so positively!” Ferguson-Dayes said.  “She has been our most influential player and anchored a very stingy back for her whole four year career.” “Emina had a spectacular year after suffering a major knee injury her freshman year,” said Ferguson-Dayes.  “She was back to full strength and was dominant for us in midfield. She has outstanding feet, she’s a tremendous dribbler and she can score goals during the run of play or off of set pieces.” Rivers earns her first all-region honors.  The junior was named a third team All-ACC selection. She compiled her best season to date for the Cardinals. She led Louisville in scoring with eight goals and seven assists for 23 points.  She also led the Cardinals with four game-winning goals.  She ranked third on the team with 30 shots and 12 shots on goal.  Story Linkslast_img read more
