Eastern DR of Congo calm but volatile as dissidents discuss pullback UN

Congolese, misinterpreting the mandate of the UN mission (MONUC) and blaming peacekeeping troops for not intervening in the civil strife in Bukavu, attacked UN buildings and equipment, spokesman Fred Eckhard said.The DRC’s national troops, whose responsibility it was to restore peace, fled yesterday, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). UN peacekeeping chief Jean Marie Guéhenno, just back from the region, said the backlash against MONUC came about because local expectations were not met. He noted, however, that while the DRC was as big as the whole of Western Europe, the UN had only about 10,000 troops countrywide, at a time when no one had expected the breakdown of the DRC’s own army.By way of comparison, he noted that Sierra Leone, which was the size of just the DRC’s Ituri province, had had 17,000 UN troops deployed there.Because of the peacekeeping success in Ituri, the expectations of the Congolese were raised and they believed that “MONUC, with its limited resources, could do everything, including secure a big city of 550,000 people against an organized, well-equipped, well-trained military force,” he said.In addition, there has been a delay in the Government’s integration of combatants from local forces into the national army, Mr. Guéhenno said.Yesterday’s violent protests against the UN continued today in Kinshasa, Kisangani, Lubumbashi and Kindu, according to Mr. Eckhard.In the DRC’s capital, Kinshasa, “the UN headquarters, compounds and vehicles were attacked and it is reported that three demonstrators, who entered the premises despite warning shots, were killed,” he said. “In the three other cities, UN buildings and property were looted and torched.”Mayi-Mayi militia in Kando, a town southwest of Goma, briefly held four UN military observers and three employees of non-governmental organizations (NGOs), he said.Secretary-General Kofi Annan expressed deep concern and spoke to DRC President Joseph Kabila earlier today. “President Kabila assured him that both he personally and the Transitional Government fully support the United Nations in the DRC and, in particular, MONUC,” Mr. Eckhard said. “The Secretary-General strongly urges the military elements in Bukavu to respect the ceasefire. He calls on the DRC’s neighbours to support the peace process and to use their influence to defuse the situation in the eastern DRC.”According to OCHA, Mr. Kabila accused Rwanda of backing the insurgency, while the Kigali Government denied any involvement. More than 2,000 Congolese Tutsis, or Banyamulenge, from the Bukavu area fled into neighbouring Rwanda over the past couple of weeks, according to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). read more

Jim Tressels resignation uncertainty pose recruiting hurdles for Ohio State football

Recruiting never was a problem for former Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel. But with the face of the program gone and an impending NCAA ruling, recruiting becomes a big worry. “(The resignation of Tressel) is a tremendous loss,” said Steve Helwagen, who covers OSU football recruiting for “Recruits that we would interview over the years would say one of the reasons they chose Ohio State was the integrity and character of Jim Tressel, and he’s not there anymore.” Luke Fickell will become the interim head coach, but, because his position isn’t permanent, the program is left with some uncertainty. “With Luke Fickell being a interim coach, it basically puts the program in limbo,” Helwagen said. “I think for recruits who want to see the long-term stability of a program, Ohio State won’t be able to show anyone that until December or January at the earliest.” The members of the 2011 recruiting class have already signed with OSU, making it difficult to switch schools. As of Monday evening, no players had announced intentions to transfer. 2011 signee and offensive lineman from Shaker Heights Antonio Underwood was quick to say he still planned to attend OSU. “Yes, sir,” Underwood said of his intentions. Others have followed suit. Tight end Nick Vannett posted on his Twitter account, @N_Vannett81, “For all of those that have asked, I am and will remain part of the #buckeyenation #Noquestion.” reported that defensive back Doran Grant also has voiced his intentions to stick with OSU. While the 2011 class appears to remain intact, future classes might be the most affected by the recent scandals. Underwood said Tressel’s resignation and the NCAA allegations would affect the way future recruits go about making decisions about OSU. “I think some recruits would reopen their options,” he said. “You have to go back and recruit the kids even harder.” Kevin Noon, managing editor of, said OSU still will be a very strong option for all recruits, especially those in Ohio. “I don’t think the loss of Jim Tressel is going to be enough to cripple Ohio State’s recruiting within the state of Ohio,” Noon said. “A lot of these kids grow up as Ohio State fans regardless of who the coach is.” Tressel had the support of Ohio high school coaches throughout the entirety of the NCAA allegations. On Saturday, the Ohio High School Football Coaches Association sent a letter of support to Tressel, university President E. Gordon Gee and athletic director Gene Smith. “During the next few months, when some individuals may try to detract from the outstanding accomplishments that you and your staff have achieved, the OHSFCA wanted to go on record to show our loyalty and appreciation for you,” the letter said of Tressel. “You are without question the best thing to happen to Ohio Football in a long time, and we want you to know we hope you will continue to be here for a long time to come.” Despite Tressel’s resignation two days later, Ohio high school coaches still support the university, even if Tressel is a part of it. “It’s still the flagship program in the state of Ohio,” McKinley Senior High School football coach Ron Johnson said. “It’s one of the greatest programs in the country, and it’s not going to attract a low-quality coach. The program will carry on.” Shaker Heights High School football coach Anthony Watkins agreed. “It will not affect (the recruiting of) any of my student-athletes, in my perspective,” Watkins said. “It’s about his education, his playing career and all the people playing around him. And all the people I’ve ever dealt with at Ohio State have been outstanding people.” But, Noon said, OSU’s biggest worry isn’t its relation with high school coaches, but the upcoming NCAA ruling Aug. 12. “The truth of the matter is Ohio State will always have good coaches in place, but the kids want to be able to play for rings and championships,” Noon said. “If the NCAA comes down and mandates that the Buckeyes will not be in the postseason for a couple of years, that’s where the real trouble comes in.” read more

Coast Guard official pleads guilty to rape

first_imgAn investigator with the U.S. Coast Guard pleaded guilty Thursday in Clark County Superior Court to three charges, including third-degree rape.Jonathan Sall, 57, of Poulsbo entered guilty pleas to the rape charge, as well as indecent liberties without forcible compulsion and residential burglary.Senior Deputy Prosecutor Dan Gasperino said the state is recommending a sentence of six years in prison, because Sall’s crimes are considered a most serious offense, which carry a harsher punishment.A plea agreement stipulates that Sall’s defense attorney, Steven Thayer, can argue for a sentence of four to eight months, however.Sall said nothing beyond answering Judge Gregory Gonzales’ routine questions with, “Yes, your honor.”According to a probable cause affidavit, Clark County deputies were called shortly after 6 a.m. Feb. 17 to the Hazel Dell residence after Sall allegedly climbed into a co-worker’s bed and sexually assaulted the co-worker’s girlfriend.last_img read more

Chinese team develop fuel cell that can clean water as it generates

first_img Liu notes in the paper, that wastewater (the stuff that goes down the toilet when flushed) or sewage, as it’s more commonly known in other countries, is a great source of environmental pollution and at the same time, is a truly important and often overlooked source of energy, which, unfortunately generally is not collected and used. It’s also an expensive by-product of human existence. Every day billions of people contribute to the ever growing problem of what to do with all the human waste that is created.In addition to organic material, wastewater often contains other materials that need to be removed in order to reuse the water for other purposes. In their lab the team tested their fuel cell’s ability to separate clear aromatics (perfumes), azo dyes, pharmaceuticals, personal care products and endocrine-disrupting compounds (birth control pill chemicals that wind up in urine) from wastewater samples and found they were able to separate them completely from the organic material thus producing clean water.To allow the system to use visible and regular sunlight rather than UV, the team modified the electrodes with semiconductors (such as CdS) which means of course the system, if industrialized, could be used outside as an add-on perhaps to existing wastewater treatment plants.So far the team hasn’t listed cost estimates for building an electrical/wastewater treatment facility with their new technology, but it’s not hard to see how useful such a plant would be in areas where sewage is sometimes not treated at all, but simply dumped into rivers or streams, or worse, in the streets. In addition to helping clean up such places, the people in those areas would benefit from the electricity that would be produced in the process. Wastewater: Energy of the future?

( — Yanbiao Liu and his colleagues from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, have succeeded in building a device capable of both cleaning wastewater and producing electricity from it. Using light as an energy source the team created a photo-catalytic fuel cell that used a titanium dioxide nanotube-array anode and a cathode based on platinum. The light energy degrades the organic material found in the wastewater and in the process generates electrons which pass through the cathode converting it into electricity.

Poll finds LGBTI couples in the UK still afraid to hold hands

first_imgGovernment reaction‘Everyone in this country should feel safe and happy to be who they are, and to love who they love, without judgment or fear,’ Penny Mordaunt, the Minister for Women and Equalities, told Into.‘I am incredibly proud of the UK’s global leadership on LGBT equality and the fact that this is the largest survey of its kind, but many of the results are very disturbing.’‘It’s unacceptable that people feel they cannot hold hands with their partner in public,’ Mordaunt added. ‘And that they are unable to walk down the street without fear of abuse. It is also deeply worrying that LGBTQ people experience difficulty accessing public services such as healthcare and that so many are being offered the abhorrent practise of conversion therapy. This Government has done much to promote a diverse, tolerant society and supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people – but it is clear we have more to do.’Thankfully, the United Kingdom recently announced their plan to ban ‘gay cure,’ or conversion therapy, in the country.Got a news tip?

American Samoa questions gay marriage validity in territory

first_img Top Stories Christian churches with conservative social views dominate in American Samoa, home to about 50,000, and the government’s motto is “Samoa, Let God Be First.” Yet the territory has a tradition of embracing faafafine — males who are raised as females and take on feminine traits.There are many faafafine who aren’t supportive of gay marriage out of “respect for our Samoan culture and religious beliefs,” said well-known faafafine Princess Auvaa.The lack of marriage license applications by same-sex couples shouldn’t be taken to mean no one in American Samoa desires gay marriage, said Villazor, the professor.“I would think there are cultural barriers to begin with. The AG might present some other legal and social barriers, too,” she said.For gay marriage to be recognized in American Samoa, there needs to be a voluntary decision or litigation, said Chimene Keitner, an expert on territorial status issues at University of California, Hastings College of the Law.Litigation would require “plaintiffs who have been denied the right to marry and are willing to take a public position on that and challenge their inability to marry,” she said.

(AP Photo/Fili Sagapolutele). PAGO PAGO, American Samoa (AP) — American Samoa is the only U.S. territory to hold out against the recent Supreme Court ruling that legalized gay marriage.As the Pacific island’s attorney general reviews the decision, legal observers and gay rights advocates are saying it should go into effect immediately.“It should be unquestioned,” said Rose Cuison Villazor, a professor at University of California, Davis’ law school and an expert on territorial law. “The Supreme Court’s decision was pretty strong.” But American Samoa Attorney General Talauega Eleasalo Ale hasn’t been ready to take that step.“We’re still reviewing the decision to determine its applicability to American Samoa, and I have no specific comments at this time,” he said.Asked if same-sex marriage is legal in the territory, Ale said, “I don’t know. We’re reviewing the law.”U.S. territories have some self-governance rights. The right to marry, however, isn’t a question of self-governance, said Omar Gonzalez-Pagan, staff attorney for national gay rights group Lambda Legal.“This is a question of individual right, individual liberty,” he said.Other U.S. territories have voluntarily complied with the Supreme Court decision.In Puerto Rico, Gov. Alejandro Garcia Padilla signed an executive order soon after the ruling. U.S. Virgin Islands Gov. Kenneth Mapp has signed a similar executive order. In Guam, there is no effort to ignore or challenge the ruling, said territorial legislative Vice Speaker Benjamin F. Cruz, who is gay. The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands is also supporting the decision.As of Thursday, no one has applied for a same-sex marriage license in American Samoa, according to the island’s Office of Vital Statistics.
