Trump at UN America First president arrives on premier internationalist stage

first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – This week the United Nations is hearing for the first time from a U.S. president who called the organization weak, incompetent, antithetical to freedom, anti-American and hostile to democracy.Donald Trump said all that in one campaign speech.Now the “America First” president is speaking for the first time to the world body at the UN General Assembly, and his first comments suggest he’ll sound a constructive note, rather than an epic nationalist smackdown upon global diplomats.Trump opened his remarks at a panel on UN reform Monday in characteristic fashion — by bragging about his Manhattan skyscraper across the street. But then he did something a little more surprising: he praised the UN.“The United Nations was founded on truly noble goals,” Trump told a roundtable discussion Monday.“The United Nations has helped advance toward these goals in so many ways: feeding the hungry, providing disaster relief, and empowering women and girls in many societies all across the world.”He praised the reform efforts of the new secretary-general, Antonio Guterres, and promised to support them: “(Things at the UN are) changing and changing fast … we pledge to be partners in your work.”More than 128 countries have signed onto the reform initiative, with Canada joining their ranks last week and co-sponsoring the reform event Trump addressed Monday.The new secretary general is aiming at changes in areas ranging from development to peacekeeping.The peacekeeping plans include focusing on where the UN has had success.A report to the secretary general this year heralded UN work in clearly defined conflicts where there are two combatants who want peace — citing Nepal, Sierra Leone and Timor as examples — but lamented failures in more complex battles and in counter-terrorism, citing Mali, Congo and Darfur as cautionary tales.It would avoid counter-terrorism operations, or complex disputes where the UN is under-equipped or ill-equipped to help. It also calls for faster deployment, modernized technology, new regional offices closer to trouble spots and more focus on conflict-prevention.“Someone recently asked what keeps me up at night. My answer was simple: bureaucracy,” Guterres said Monday.“Fragmented structures. Byzantine procedures. Endless red tape. Someone out to undermine the UN could not have come up with a better way to do it than by imposing some of the rules we have created ourselves.”Canada has yet to announce its plans for upcoming peacekeeping missions and will not do so this week, officials say. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau arrives in New York on Tuesday.Trudeau will promote multilateralism in his speech Thursday, including co-operation with international forums and with other countries on efforts like climate change.“We’ve demonstrated a willingness to be more involved in these institutions — to achieve solutions together,” said Trudeau spokesman Cameron Ahmad.“Obviously the prime minister will reiterate Canada’s approach to multilateralism and to working within multilateral institutions.”Last year’s message was in lock-step with the one from Barack Obama. Both urged their fellow leaders to pursue broad-based prosperity, lest the working classes get angry, revolt against the global economy and back nationalist-populist politicians.The events they were referring to were Brexit and the campaign of Trump.On Monday, Trudeau met with British Prime Minister Theresa May, who is leading the U.K.’s departure from the European Union, and they discussed the possibility of a Canada-U.K. trade agreement.North Korea will also loom large.Trump’s UN ambassador has warned that the time for non-military solutions is running out. Nikki Haley applauded the UN for its latest sanctions, but suggested there are few political actions left available.“If (this) doesn’t work, Gen. Mattis will take care of it,” she said of the U.S. secretary of defence in a CNN interview.“If North Korea keeps on with this reckless behaviour, if the United States has to defend itself or defend its allies in any way, North Korea will be destroyed…. None of us want that. None of us want war.”last_img read more

UNAIDS enters partnership to keep babies HIVfree in Africa

Under an agreement signed today, UNAIDS and the Millennium Villages Project will jointly help local governments in nine African nations set up “mother to child transmission-free zones.” The Millennium Villages Project aims to reach the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – eight anti-poverty targets with a 2015 deadline – in 10 African countries within five years through community-led development. Every year, the great majority of children born with HIV are in sub-Saharan Africa, where fewer than half of pregnant women living with the virus receive antiretroviral prophylaxis, which is crucial in preventing newborns from contracting HIV. With the support from African and global business leaders, the new scheme will draw on existing infrastructure and human resources in villages to rapidly expand health services. “In the whole of Western Europe, there were fewer than 100 mother-to-child transmissions in 2007, whereas in sub-Saharan Africa, there were some 370,000,” said UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibé. “We have a major opportunity now to eliminate mother-to-child transmission of HIV in Africa and save thousands of lives every year.” In high-income countries, transmission of HIV to children has plummeted from 25 per cent to between 1 and 5 per cent in recent years as HIV testing and counseling of pregnant women, the use of antiretroviral drugs during and after delivery, and safe infant feeding have become common practice. Evidence from Africa points to locally-appropriate and cost-effective clinical measures could slash transmissions from current rates, hovering around 45 per cent, to as low as 1 or 2 per cent. 21 September 2009Efforts to curb HIV transmission from mothers to their children in Africa have received a boost, thanks to a new partnership between the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and a UN-backed initiative seeking to help lift villages on the continent lift themselves out of poverty. read more

Burt says challenges still remain

He was able to talk to people who had suffered the brutality of the LTTE, which remains a banned organisation in the UK, the High Commission added. Visiting UK Minister Alistair Burt says he is pleased to see the progress in some areas of the north but yet notes that challenges still remain, the British High Commission in Colombo said.Burt went to the North of the country today on the first day of his visit to Sri Lanka, holding a range of meetings and opening a youth project designed to facilitate country-wide reconciliation. The British High Commission said that ahead of this year’s Commonwealth Heads of Government Meetings (CHOGM), Burt was able to see developments that have occurred in the region since his last visit two years ago, and the work that remains to be done, following thirty years of conflict. During a visit to the Keppapilavu relocation site, Burt saw the continuing challenges faced daily by those who were displaced by the conflict. He expressed his hope that they would soon be able to return to their homes, or to other suitable areas.As Guest of Honour at the opening of Sri Lanka Unites’ reconciliation centre at Mulliayawelai, the Minister saw how the UK is helping to support sustainable peace in Sri Lanka. “I have been pleased to see progress in some areas since the end of the conflict. The destructive force of war – tearing lives, families, societies and countries apart – is only too evident in this part of the country. It is great to see young Sri Lankans leading efforts to heal wounds and to unite Sri Lankans of all backgrounds in the task of reconciliation and recovery. This Sri Lanka Unites reconciliation centre, together with others due to be established in other parts of the country, will help to bridge the divide between the North and the South. Such centres will foster communication and understanding across the island. Sri Lanka Unites is helping to empower young people to build a strong, stable, prosperous and united future. I am delighted to be able to support their efforts.”In the North, the Minister also met the Mullaitivu Government Agent, Mr N Vethanayakam, and NGOs working in the area. These included the HALO Trust, a British organisation which is conducting de-mining in the North with £3 million of UK Government support. (Colombo Gazette) read more

Imperial Oil says strong refining margins key to jump in thirdquarter profit

by Lauren Krugel, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 1, 2012 4:05 pm MDT CALGARY – Imperial Oil Ltd. says higher margins at its refineries were the main reason for a 21 per cent jump in its third-quarter profit, handily beating analysts’ expectations.The Calgary-based integrated energy company (TSX:IMO) says its net income during the three-month period rose to $1.04 billion, or $1.22 per share, compared to $859 million or $1.01 a share for the same period last year.The profits easily outstripped the average analyst estimate of $1.08 per share, according to Thomson Reuters.Earnings in Imperial’s downstream segment — which encompasses oil refining and retailing — had its strongest-ever quarter with earnings of $536 million, about double what they were a year earlier.Two of Imperial’s peers that have reported their third quarter results in the past day — Suncor Energy Inc. (TSX:SU) and Husky Energy Inc. (TSX:HSE) — also did well on the downstream end.While an overabundance of crude in North America has reduced prices and dampened the profits of many oilsands producers, companies like Imperial that have refinery operations are somewhat buffered from that effect. What integrated energy firms lose in producing oil, they make up for in refining it, because it’s cheaper to buy crude to run through their facilities.Imperial’s total revenues came in at $8.3 billion for the quarter compared to $7.9 billion year over year.Imperial is majority owned by Houston-based energy heavyweight ExxonMobil Corp. (NYSE:XOM)Work on Imperial’s $10.9-billion Kearl project is 98 per cent complete the project is on track to start up by the end of this year.Last year, Imperial’s board of directors approved an $8.9-billion expansion that will begin producing 110,000 barrels per day by late 2015.When Imperial announced in 2009 that it would build the Kearl mine, it expected three phases of roughly the same size. Later, it decided to instead build the mine in two phases, with smaller projects along the way to boost output in increments.Imperial and its parent are in the early stages of weighing a liquefied natural gas export terminal on Canada’s West Coast in order to get a better price for the gas it produces in province’s northeast.The acreage Imperial has in the Horn River Basin contains dry gas, which can fetch a price several times higher in Asia than it could in North America, which is awash in supplies.ExxonMobil recently announced a deal to buy Calgary-based natural gas producer Celtic Exploration Ltd. (TSX:CLT) for $3.1 billion. Imperial Oil isn’t part of the deal, but is evaluating the opportunity to take on a 50 per cent stake in the future.Imperial has vast steam-driven oilsands operations at Cold Lake, a 25 per cent stake in the Syncrude Canada oilsands mine, a handful of refineries across Canada and a chain of Esso-branded fuel stations.Imperial shares rose more than three per cent to $45.55 in afternoon trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Womens volleyball opens Big Ten with two Top 5 opponents

Senior middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe attacking at the net in a regional semifinal against the University of Washington on Dec. 11, 2015. Credit: OSU AthleticsAfter a long preseason on the road, Big Ten play has finally arrived for the Ohio State women’s volleyball team, and it will not be an easy transition for the Buckeyes.  The No. 17 Buckeye “tribe” will battle No. 3 Wisconsin on Friday, followed by No. 2 Minnesota on Saturday. Both matches will send OSU on the road for the fifth weekend in a row this season. This time last season, OSU went point-for-point with each of the teams, going the full five-set distance in both matches, but with different outcomes. The Buckeyes took a loss to Minnesota, but came back four days later to take down the Badgers at St. John Arena. The veteran players on this OSU squad know exactly what to expect when the conference season rolls around. “The Big Ten is always going to be a grind every night,” said senior middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe. “You’re going into battle with some of the best teams in the whole entire country.”Sandbothe has been around long enough to face three waves of Badgers and Gophers, and this weekend will mark her fourth and final go-around to leave everything she has on the floor. “Every time we go into a Big Ten weekend — and this being my last one, it’s kind of bittersweet — but I think it’s such an opportunity and privilege to play in this conference and see this type of volleyball all the time,” she said. “I think it’s made me the player I am today.”Sandbothe and her teammates mentioned the energy buzzing in the arena for Big Ten matches.This week, both of the Buckeyes’ opponents are ranked inside the top five in the country for the average crowd attendance at their matches. Between 5,000 and 6,000 Gopher and Badger fans will pour into the arenas this weekend to cheer on the home team. The crowd’s energy is vital to any athletic event, and junior outside hitter Luisa Schirmer said she cannot wait to silence the opposing voices when her team takes the floor. “We talk about being ‘road warriors’ all the time, and kind of shutting up the fans in their house, and I think that’s so much fun,” Schirmer said. In addition to playing in front of large visiting crowds, the Buckeyes will go into battle with two teams armed with a deep arsenal of weapons. Freshman Badger Molly Haggerty has already won three Big Ten honors, and just this week, she was voted American Volleyball Coaches Association Player of the Week after the team’s performance against Texas and Texas A&M. Her teammate, Tionna Williams, also earned Big Ten recognition this week and currently ranks sixth in the nation for blocks per set. Minnesota boasts its own array of conference awards. The team’s setter, Samantha Seliger-Swenson, has earned Big Ten Setter of the Week four consecutive times already this season. The team also holds spots in the top 10 in three national statistics, including fourth in kills per set. OSU coach Geoff Carlston said his team is going into these matches ready for war. “I’m excited to see our team kind of being in that cauldron, be in that fire,” he said. “Our team kind of looks forward to the opportunity of having an us-against-them mentality and ‘arms locked in.’”The strength of these opponents doesn’t come to the Buckeyes as a surprise, but Carlston said he is confident in the preparation of his team and its mindset going into this opening weekend. “It’s not going to be an easy thing, but our team feels good about who we are and where we’re at right now,” he said. Logically, the odds are stacked against the Buckeyes, but Schirmer sees parity throughout the conference.“Being the nature of the Big Ten, you can beat anyone on any given day,” she said. “I don’t care about the rankings … it’s all about how we play and what we focus on.”OSU will take on its first Big Ten foe, Wisconsin at 8 p.m. on Friday in Madison, Wisconsin. The team will then travel to Minnesota to play the Gophers at 8 p.m. on Saturday. read more

Hawkeye, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Wanda and Vision, Loki, and more all have series in the works for the streaming TV service launching this November. However, at Disney’s D23 event we learned about one more new hero leaping off the comic book page into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and she’s a fan favorite.The Hollywood Reporter says a Ms. Marvel show is in development for Disney+.Ms. Marvel was the original codename of Carol Danvers. But over a billion dollars worth of movie-goers now know that character as Captain Marvel. Instead, this Ms. Marvel is a relatively recent character named Kamala Khan. Created in 2013, Kamala Khan is a teen Pakistani girl and the first Muslim superhero to headline her own comic book. Her comics have received consistent critical praise. We called her the modern superhero of America.The Ms. Marvel show will be run by British writer Bisha K. Ali. As for how the character will fit into the MCU we aren’t sure yet. A teen girl of color inspired by Captain Marvel is definitely a relevant hook. But in the comics her stretchy superpowers come from her Inhuman heritage. So far, the Inhumans have only been acknowledged in non-MCU Marvel TV shows like Agents of Shield and that bad Inhumans show.But as a wisecracking insecure teen Ms. Marvel can definitely fill the big Spider-Man shaped hole currently in the MCU. And that wasn’t the only show revealed at the event. Bruce Banner’s lawyer cousin She-Hulk and urban horror hero Moon Knight are getting Disney+ shows as well.Just announced at #D23Expo, SHE-HULK, an original series from Marvel Studios, only on Disney+ pic.twitter.com/EmfcKjqI6e— Disney+ (@disneyplus) August 23, 2019 Just announced at #D23Expo, MS.

Howard Kennedy achieves 11 increase in take up of healthcare scheme

first_imgCommercial law firm Howard Kennedy has seen an 11% increase in take up of its healthcare scheme following the introduction of several new benefits.The London-based firm, which employs around 350 members of staff, introduced a nurse-led advice and claims management service in November 2016, after appointing Willis Towers Watson to broker its healthcare scheme.The organisation also introduced a health cash plan to support employees’ everyday healthcare costs.

The Atlantic Launches New Web Brand

first_imgThe 150-year-old Atlantic magazine, known for its long-form journalism, today launched a digital publication—the Current—aimed at those who don’t have time for long-form anything.“In print, the magazine has always been famous for its 5,000 to 10,000-word essays,” says Atlantic president Justin Smith. “We’re crunching that [word count] to 250-300 words.”Smith says the idea for the Current is to give the Atlantic’s “marquee” writers, bloggers and other editorial staffers an opportunity to write “short essays or posts on a variety of topical subjects.” It’s another step into the digital arena for a once-stodgy print brand. In January, the Atlantic removed its online pay wall, making its digital archives freely available to non-subscribers. As a result, Smith says, traffic to TheAtlantic.com has increased about 15 percent to 2.3 million monthly unique visitors.Like Smith’s former employer, The Week, The Current will also filter “the best thinking on the day’s important news” from a variety of outside sources. (Smith bristled at the comparison. “Everyone’s doing aggregation,” Smith said. “This is much different—this is original opinion content.”)The site was developed internally, and Smith declined to give cost or revenue projections. Credit Suisse, the financial services firm, has signed on as the site’s launch sponsor. “It’s not the Wild West of the blogosphere,” Smith said of the site’s appeal to advertisers. “They’re getting a very polished, highly-produced essay.”last_img read more

Published in the February issue of Radiology, the results will be presented at the 2011 European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in Vienna, March 5.Single shot spectral imaging is enabled using Sectra’s photon counting MicroDose Mammography system. The photon counting technology enables the detection of photons with different energies and color in a single x-ray exposure instead of the multiple exposures needed by other technologies. The spectral information opens up a new approach to breast imaging, whereby the tissue type of the breast can be determined by the measured photon energies. This can potentially lead to higher cancer detection accuracy. The research project was funded by the European Union as part of the HighRex project.It is already in use in most European countries, as well as in Australia and New Zealand.

SingleFamily BuiltforRent Market is on the Rise

first_img The increased popularity of the single-family rental (SFR) market in the last two years has led to an increased number of SFR homes built for the expressed purpose of renting. The market for detached SFR homes built-for-rent is on the rise despite a falling market share in the last three years, according to Robert Dietz, Vice President for Tax and Market Analysis for NAHB.For the fourth quarter of 2015, built-for-rent SFR homes accounted for about 3.5 percent of all SFR starts, according to data from the Census Bureau (Quarterly Starts and Completions by Purpose and Design) and analysis from the National Association of Home Builders. While that market share is higher than the historical average of 2.8 percent, it is more than 2 percentage points lower than the market share at the start of 2013, just three years ago (5.8 percent).Meanwhile, the number of SFR homes built for the purpose of renting ticked up from 25,000 in 2014 to 26,000 in 2015, according to NAHB.“The market for single-family for-sale homes is growing faster,” Dietz said, noting that this was also the custom home market was also experiencing similar movements. “The 2014-2015 volume is higher than, for example, prior years, but market share is falling as the for-sale segment expands.”Dietz continued, “With the onset of the Great Recession, the share of built-for-rent homes rose. Despite the current elevated market concentration, the total number of single-family starts built-for-rent remains fairly low in terms of the total building market.”The share of built-for-rent SFR homes comprises a considerably smaller share of the total SFR portion of the nation’s stock of rental housing. According to a report from John Burns Real Estate Consulting in August 2015, about 12.7 million households rented a single-family detached home, which made up about 29 percent of the 44.3 million total renters nationwide.Burns noted in his report that the SFR market has traditionally been a “mom and pop” business (with about 54 percent of SFR landlords renting out only one house, according to data from RentRange), institutional investors were beginning to take note of the more than 12 million SFR detached home renters. He said he believes the competition of single-family rental homes with the detached resale and new home market has created a need for new homes to be built for single-family rentals.“Clearly, there is a subset of renters who will pay a premium to rent new, as evidenced by the 200K+ apartment units that are built and leased every year,” Burns said. “If it works for apartment developers, why has there not been much attempt to build single-family homes for rent? Those days are now ending.” February 24, 2016 731 Views in Data, Headlines, News Built for Rent Single-Family Rental 2016-02-24 Staff Writercenter_img Single-Family Built-for-Rent Market is on the Rise Sharelast_img read more

Where and when are the best places to catch this natural phenomenon?Sarah, NewcastleDear Sarah,The wildebeest migration truly is one of the most incredible sights in Africa. There are quite a few different options on where and when to watch it, so let’s break it down: What is the wildebeest migration?The wildebeest is a horned mammal that looks like a water buffalo or large antelope. The wildebeest migration is the annual trek from Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park to the Masai Mara in Kenya, and back, in search of fresh grazing. It’s one of the best-known and most spectacular movement of animals in the world. It is estimated that over one million wildebeests, adults and calves, join the migration in a wild stampede across plains and rivers.When does it happen?The wildebeests are actually always on the move, completing a 1,000km-odd circuit over the course of a year. However, there are times of the year when it is best to catch them. In late June and July they begin their move north from Tanzania to Kenya, crossing the northern Serengeti into the Masai Mara. Around October time they head back to Tanzania. This does vary though, according to the rains, so check one of the many websites dedicated to tracking the migration. The wildebeest blog is regularly updated, as is the WildWatch website.Is it just wildebeests or will I see other animals?Joining the wildebeests are zebra, gazelles, and in places you will also see elephants, rhinos, cheetahs, giraffes and eagles, as well as predators to the migratory herds, namely lions and crocodiles who lie in wait at river crossings, the most dangerous parts of the route for the wildebeest.Any tips for catching the action?Keep an eye on the times when they will cross the Grumeti River in Tanzania and the Mara River in Kenya, as these crossings are spectacular to watch.Where should I stay?It depends on when you go, but in late June and early July, it’s the Grumeti River crossing, so you want to be in Tanzania. The camps nearby include the Serengeti Serene Safari Lodge, a series of luxury, camouflaged pods in the plains that offers game drives, nature trails, balloon safaris, bush barbecues and more. The view comes at a price though, upwards of £300 a night, although packages are available at certain times of year.Soon afterwards, usually in July, it’s the Mara River crossing in Kenya, and one of the best-placed camps is the smaller Sayari Mara Camp, which has 15 permanent ‘tents’, with ensuite bathrooms and more than a touch of luxury. Each tent has hot showers, effective mosquito nets, cold drinks and gourmet food, and there’s even a spa. Packages cost from around £300 a night.If you’re worried about missing out on the migration, it’s a good idea to book a mobile tented camp such as Serengeti Safari Camp, which has just five tents that sleep 12 people and moves around Tanzania throughout the year to follow the animals. Each tent has a shower and toilet, comfortable bed, and dressing area and there is a lounging and dining tent. It costs from £280 a night although there are offers that include trips to other mobile camps and longer stays. Answer by Ginny Light – TimesOnline travel editorGot a travel question?
