Ban urges calm in wake of Fijian court ruling

9 April 2009Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today called for calm in Fiji following the ruling by the Pacific archipelago’s Court of Appeal that the December 2006 removal of the elected Government was unlawful and the appointment of the interim Government unconstitutional. Mr. Ban “urges full respect for human rights, the rule of law and the judicial process,” according to a statement issued by his spokesperson.He noted that a meeting convened today by Commodore Josaia V. Bainimarama, who serves as Prime Minister, included a number of political parties, but excluded many major ones.Last year, the UN was requested to mediate an “inclusive, independent and time-bound” political dialogue, also brokered by the Commonwealth, after parliamentary elections scheduled for last month were postponed.“The United Nations, in consultation with the Commonwealth, will be reviewing its role in mediating a national dialogue in light of these developments and the prior understanding that the dialogue must be broad-based, inclusive, time bound and without prejudice as to its outcome,” the Secretary-General said in today’s statement.The island chain has suffered prolonged internal tensions between its indigenous Fijian and Indo-Fijian communities, and had four coups since 1987. Mr. Bainimarama, commander of Fiji’s military forces, came to power in a coup in December 2006, sparking criticism from the UN at the time. read more

Play to bring Brock researchers work to life

Brock faculty members, graduate students and community artists have come together to transform the work of a Brock researcher into a play to be performed at this weekend’s Festival of Readers.We Want to Paint on the Walls of the Cave: Stories from the Contact Zone blends dance, music, drama, poetry, visuals and audience participation to explore the experiences of immigrants, refugees and indigenous peoples in Canada.Since it was first performed at the In the Soil Arts Festival in April, the play has been expanded with new content and performers.The current cast includes several Brock University faculty members and graduate students from diverse backgrounds. Using a collaborative playbuilding approach, the performers wove their personal experiences and ideas into the play.Snezana Ratkovic, a research officer and instructor in the Faculty of Education, worked with colleagues in the Faculty to develop the play based on her PhD research into the experiences of refugee women. Having settled in Canada as a refugee from the former Yugoslavia, she understands the challenge of creating a new life in an unfamiliar country.Named after a transcript poem Ratkovic created, the play’s title reflects how the women in her research wanted to express their creativity while striving to learn new languages, rebuild careers and support their families.Ratkovic credited the support of several faculty and community members for helping to bring the production together.Associate Professor Kari-Lynn Winters, in the Department of Teacher Education, is the play’s director and co-playwright; Assistant Professor Catherine Longboat, of Brock’s Tecumseh Centre For Aboriginal Research and Education, used her expertise of the indigenous community to aid in the play’s creation; Tecumseh Centre Assistant Professor Spy Dénommé-Welch composed the show’s music; recent Brock graduate Heryka Miranda, a social change dance artist and activist-scholar, worked with the performers as a choreographer and dance director; and Catherine Magowan, Dénommé-Welch’s composing partner, was the recording engineer.We Want to Paint on the Walls of the Cave will be performed at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 4 at the Niagara Artists Centre, 354 St. Paul St. in St. Catharines. read more

Jilted husband burns self to death in home after wife leaves

Bisnauth Baldeo Ram of Section ‘A’ Cotton Tree Village, West Coast Berbice reportedly turned the family’s single-storey wooden structure, measuring 20ft by 18ft, into a pyre in which he perished following hours of dispute with his wife on Thursday.This publication was told that resulting from this dispute, Ram’s wife had earlier departed the home, claiming she was going to the city to stay with a relative; and neighbours had last seen the 52-year-old Ram standing in front of his gate on Thursday at about 10:45hrs, when he was overheard saying that he had had enough of his wife walking out of the house, and was going to burn the house and kill himself in the process.Smoke reportedly began emanating from the front of Ram’s house at about 11:00hrs, but by the time the Fire Service arrived on scene some 30 minutes later, the entire building was engulfed. A fire unit from GuySuCo’s Blairmont Estate first responded, and then the Onverwagt Fire Station sent a unit.When the fire was extinguished, Ram’s charred remains were found among the debris. He reportedly had been unemployed, and was said to have been an alcoholic.According to a source from the New Amsterdam Fire Service, Ram had locked the door and had placed a table to prevent anyone from entering the building in the initial stages of the fire.Ram’s body is currently at the Fort Wellington Hospital Mortuary, awaiting a post mortem.

Nest smart thermostat teardown reveals inner beauty

first_imgA very curious geek has risked the $250 investment in the Nest thermostat — the clever, networked device from one of the people behind the iPod — to tear it apart and share its insides with the world. The teardown reveals that the Nest is truly an advanced piece of electronics with a very Apple-ish attention to detail.The thermostat is chock full of high tech parts, including infrared sensors for movement and proximity, humidity sensors, a magneto scroll, and even a mini-USB connector. It also has multiple wireless radios and a large battery to provide steady power to all these extra bits.Throughout the process, our hero noticed the ease of taking things apart and even got about halfway through the process with the Nest-branded Phillips screwdriver included in the box. After that, the Torx screwdrivers came out.If you were wondering, magneto sensors are used in the scrolling outer edge of the device. Like a click wheel, it’s used for everything from raising or lowering the temperature to choosing letters from a radial menu to enter Wi-Fi passwords.When he reached the end of the teardown, the bare PCB, he found something remarkable: every IC chip was bonded to the PCB. He exclaimed with surprise, wondering if Nest was worried about mechanical shock or vibration. A more likely cause is a concern for long-running device quality. A thermostat is unlike most gadgets we buy, for instance a mobile phone. People don’t want to upgrade them frequently — consumers tend to buy one and keep it forever.To the disappointment of many of us here at Geek, none of the specific ICs have been looked up yet. However, the author spotted “two flexible PCB antennas” with one marked Zigbee, in reference to an open standard for automated home devices. It’s likely the case that the other one is for Wifi and that the thermostat, along with future Nest devices, will embrace the Zigbee standard.In another testament to the device’s design it “astonishingly” was put back together in just a few minutes. Ultimately the teardown’s author praised the hardware design, as well as the UI and website design for the Nest. “It’s slick. Really slick,” he wrote, adding that the ribbons, connectors, battery and hardware were all of high quality.More at SparkfunBlake’s OpinionAs we wrote when Nest was introduced, there’s a lot of Apple DNA in this product. That’s not too surprising considering Nest is founded by Tony Fadell, who is a prominent character in the iPod chapter of Steve Jobs’ biography. He’s often referred to colloquially as “the father of the iPod.” But there’s one more chapter from the Jobs bio that belongs in the Nest story: an emphasis on beauty, even in the parts inside the device.The teardown pictures reveal that the Nest thermostat is as pretty inside as it can be. Lines are clean, parts are well laid out, and even though almost no one will tear down the device like this, almost anyone can. There are even hints of symmetry among connectors inside the round device. There are still other small, Apple-ish details like the “Designed in US / Built in China” monicker printed on the back of the device.Aside from the trademark attractive design and well-executed software, it’s clear that Fadell and company took a lot of Apple with them when they left to form Nest.last_img read more

Google and Verily use AI to screen patients for diabetic eye conditions

first_img Share your voice Google and Verily’s algorithm in use at the Aravind Eye Hospital in India. Verily Google and Verily, Alphabet’s life sciences arm, are using machine learning to screen for diabetic retinopathy (DR) and diabetic macular edema (DME), two eye conditions that can lead to blindness. The goal is to enable automated screening that can detect disease sooner and provide more people with access to screenings.Verily, part of Google parent company Alphabet, has been working with the search giant to conduct clinical research around the world and particularly in India, where studies showed the algorithm was as good at assessing images for disease as general ophthalmologists and retinal specialists, according to a Monday blog post from the companies. The results of the research led to the “first real world clinical use of the algorithm” at Aravind Eye Hospital in Madurai, India, this year, the companies said. The algorithm received the CE mark, certifying that it’s met safety, health and environmental protection requirements in the European Union, according to the post.In India, several cases of DR are undiagnosed because of a shortage of more than 100,000 eye doctors and a lack of screening for 66 million diabetics, the companies said. Machine learning could help more people get appropriate screenings, according to Dr. R. Kim, chief medical officer and chief of retina services at Aravind Eye Hospital.”By integrating Verily and Google’s retinal diagnostic program into our screening process, we can improve our efficiency, giving physicians like myself more time to work closely with patients on treatment and management of their disease while increasing the volume of screenings we can perform,” Kim said in a statement. At Aravind Eye Hospital, technicians take an image of each eye, and the algorithm then assesses the image for DR and DME. The technicians get quick feedback to determine whether a patient needs to be referred to a doctor.Aravind’s vision centers provide care to remote and rural parts of India. Verily and Google said they believe their algorithm could help in other parts of the world with a shortage of eye doctors and a growing number of people with diabetes. The companies also recently began a study with Rajavithi Hospital in Thailand to examine the algorithm’s impact in a national DR screening program. In addition, they’re working with Nikon and its subsidiary Optos to find other areas where machine learning tools that screen for diabetic eye disease could be helpful. Verily was previously working on smart contact lenses embedded with sensors that could potentially help diabetics monitor their glucose levels, but put that project on hold in November.  Tags Comment Sci-Tech 1 Googlelast_img read more

3 lakh CCTV cameras will be installed for women safety

first_imgNew Delhi: Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Sunday said about three lakh CCTV cameras will be installed in Delhi as part of a project to boost security, asserting that the Arvind Kejriwal government is committed to ensure safety of women in the city. The AAP government has already begun work on installation of 1.4 CCTV cameras. He was addressing a gathering after inaugurating the work to install 2,000 CCTV cameras in his assembly constituency of Patparganj as part of the project. A control room will be set up at the PWD headquarters in ITO area to keep a constant vigil on any eve-teasers or miscreants in every nook and cranny, Sisodia said. Also Read – CYSS on hunger strike for ballot papers Advertise With Us “These hi-tech cameras will have a system that will provide a live feed to the RWA of the area and another to the SHO on a phone. The feed will be stored for 30 days and old feed can also be accessed on phone,” he said. Hitting out at the AAP government’s detractors, he reiterated that it was for the installation of CCTV cameras and Mohalla Clinics that “the CM, I and other colleagues had held dharna for over a week at the LG House”. Sisodia claimed that “only two other cities globally” have such a robust system of CCTV cameras across the city. Delhi will become “the third one”, he said. “I congratulate the people of Patparganj. It is a big dream realised today.. as it is related to women safety. Also Read – INX Media scam: HC to hear ED plea of Karti’s CA in Dec Advertise With Us Though (the job of ensuring) women safety (Delhi Police) does not directly come under the Delhi government, it is doing whatever it can, and installation of CCTVs is a step in that direction only,” he said. Entire Delhi is to get 1.4 lakh CCTV cameras in two-three months, Sisodia said during the event held at Supershine Chowk in East Vinod Nagar in East Delhi, adding, Patparganj will get 2,000 cameras in the first phase. Advertise With Us “And, tender process has begun for another 1.5 lakh cameras. So, entire Delhi will have about three lakh cameras,” he said. “Our sisters and daughters will get the biggest relief,” Sisodia said. The Deputy chief minister, who is also Delhi’s Education Minister, said the cameras will be installed separately for schools and buses. Earlier this month, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had announced that the work would start on June 8. He said the tender for installing 1.40 lakh CCTV cameras had been passed and a survey completed for 70,000 cameras. The entire project is likely to be completed by December, the Chief Minister had said. “We are serious about women safety and the proposal to make metro and DTC rides free for them is also another dimension of our vision,” Sisodia said, and asked the crowd if it should be brought in or not. “A woman or a girl will save Rs 2000-3000 monthly and that benefit will also cascade to the male members. A father can spend more on daughter’s books and education then,” he said. “It is big step to ensure women safety. And I know many girls who are MBA and MTech but do not step out for work due to safety issues or step out less… If they feel safe, they will give vote to us,” he said, with a smile.last_img read more

Paul Manafort Pleads Not Guilty To Conspiracy Tax And Bank Fraud Charges

first_imgAlex Wong/Getty ImagesFormer Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort arrives at the Albert V. Bryan U.S. Courthouse for an arraignment hearing on March 8, 2018, in Alexandria, Va.Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort pleaded not guilty to conspiracy, tax and bank fraud charges in an Alexandria, Va., federal court Thursday afternoon.Judge T.S. Ellis set a trial date for July 10, 2018.Manafort faces a separate federal trial on September 17, 2018, on other charges also brought by special counsel Robert Mueller’s office in a Washington, D.C., case.For the Virginia case, Manafort will be fitted with a second electronic monitoring bracelet (he is already wearing one related to the D.C. case) and will be allowed to meet with lawyers, attend church services and make emergency medical trips as needed.Judge Ellis, who has been on the bench for 31 years, alternately cracked jokes and pressed lawyers for Manafort and Mueller’s office on their legal positions.The judge urged prosecutors to add a lawyer to their team experienced in practicing in the Eastern District of Virginia federal court where the Alexandria, Va., courthouse is located. “Only a fool would try a case in a jurisdiction he’s unfamiliar with, without local counsel,” the judge said, citing wisdom of his mentor Supreme Court Justice Lewis Powell.The judge also pressed the special counsel’s team about why it had brought so many charges against Manafort — 18 — and whether the government case could be streamlined.Prosecutor Andrew Weissmann said his case would likely take 8 to 10 trial days and involve 20 to 25 witnesses.But Judge Ellis also pushed Manafort’s defense team, which resisted a quick trial date. When Kevin Downing, the lead lawyer for Manafort, said in a perfect world “with rosy glasses on,” the Virginia trial would start in November, the judge retorted: “You need to go back to the optometrist — that isn’t going to happen.”The judge asked whether Manafort’s team expected to challenge the authority and scope of Mueller’s mandate — an argument Manafort is making in a separate civil suit in Washington, D.C., federal court — and Downing said yes.Downing said he would add two Virginia lawyers to his team, likely on Monday.If Manafort is convicted in either the Virginia or D.C. case, it could amount to a life sentence since he’s is 68 years old.Copyright 2018 NPR.

Another month another global heat record broken by far

first_imgNOAA calculated that the world’s average temperature in June hit 61.48 degrees Fahrenheit (16.33 Celsius), breaking the old record set last year by 0.22 degrees (.12 degrees Celsius). Usually temperature records are broken by one or two one-hundredths of a degree, not nearly a quarter of a degree, Blunden said.And the picture is even more dramatic when the half-year is considered.The first six months of 2015 were one-sixth of a degree warmer than the old record, set in 2010, averaging 57.83 degrees (14.35 Celsius).The old record for the first half of the year was set in 2010, the last time there was an El Nino — a warming of the central Pacific Ocean that changes weather worldwide. But in 2010, the El Nino petered out. This year, forecasters are predicting this El Nino will get stronger, not weaker.“If that happens, it’s just going to go off the charts,” Blunden said.June was warm nearly all over the world, with exceptional heat in Spain, Austria, parts of Asia, Australia and South America. Southern Pakistan had a June heat wave that killed more than 1,200 people — which, according to an international database, would be the eighth deadliest in the world since 1900. In May, a heat wave in India claimed more than 2,000 lives and ranked as the fifth deadliest on record.

June was the fourth month of 2015 that set a record, she said.“There is almost no way that 2015 isn’t going to be the warmest on record,” she added. May and March also broke monthly heat records, which go back 136 years. Initially NOAA figured February 2015 was only the second hottest February on record, but new data came in that made it too the hottest, Blunden said. Earth has broken monthly heat records 25 times since the year 2000, but hasn’t broken a monthly cold record since 1916.“This is what anthropogenic global warming looks like, just hotter and hotter,” said Jonathan Overpeck, co-director of the Institute of the Environment at the University of Arizona.___Online:NOAA June global analysis: http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/sotc/global/201506___Seth Borenstein can be followed at http://twitter.com/borenbears___This story has been corrected with new data showing June was the fourth record-setting month of 2015, not the third.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Related 10 dishes every gourmand should have tried

first_img Related10 dishes every gourmand should have triedThere are gourmet delights all around the world, but what do the food experts recommend as the dishes that every gourmand should try at least once in their lifetime, and where should you travel to taste them? Read on for the ultimate foodies bucket list.12 best street foods around the world: in picturesTantalise (or terrify) your tastebuds with our global gallery of the good, the gorgeous (and the grasshoppers) of gourmet street food.World’s most travelled man: The Fred Finn interviewSo you thought you were well travelled? France: cepe creamI could have easily given an extensive list of delicious items that I have eaten around France over the years, ranging from a flash fried foie gras flamed with calvados and served with caramelised apples, or the perfectly cooked roasted poulet noir with such an exceptional taste of chicken that I had never previously experienced before, or for that matter, ever since!However, I have selected one of the most memorable mouthfuls that has ever crossed my lips; a cepe cream from the restaurant Apicius in Paris.This cepe cream had the colour of milky coffee and a mild woody aroma with gentle hints of smokiness; my silver spoon gently glided into the little pot, slipping through an unctuous mixture that had the density of clotted cream.The texture on the tongue was a mix of silk and velvet with such clean distinct flavours of the cepe, simplicity married with genius and most certainly an indulgence to try before you die!Grab flights to Paris to sample a cepe cream now! Japan: matured wagyu beefThe list here could be endless and the fresh giant abalone baked under a crust of seaweed and salt came close, but the winner by a nori leaf has to be the matured, aged wagyu beef cooked at the small and private tepanyaki restaurant located at the Shangri-La hotel in Tokyo.This incredibly tender meat perfectly seasoned and cooked, melted on the tongue, a dish that halted all conversation in its tracks only to be replaced by gentle moans and groans of indulgent ecstasy. Ooishii yo!Hop on flights to Japan to enjoy some wagyu beef. Turkey: Turkish delight filled with clotted creamTurkey has a wonderful cuisine and ingredients but one of its most famous exports has to be Turkish delight. Whilst many people have tasted a version of this confection, I urge you to visit Ali Muhiddin Haci Bekir in the old quarter of Istanbul. The shop has been making and selling Turkish delight since 1777 and very little has changed either in the shop or with the recipes. Whilst all types of Turkish are very good, the delight you must try before you die is a gently rolled lokum filled with clotted cream.I must admit that when offered the confection I initially thought that this may be a little over the top, but the moment it went into my mouth, the combination of smooth sensual textures, richness and delectable flavours had me gasping for more, unlike any other sweet I have ever tasted, whilst possibly being one of the naughtiest!Want to enjoy the delights of Turkey? Grab flights to Istanbul now.South Africa: Butter FishSouth Africa is a country of diversity and needless to say its vast influence shows within its cuisine. It is a country that lies close to my heart and I have been fortunate to visit and film cookery shows across this vast nation for nearly 12 years now.Needless to say I have enjoyed or at least tasted some very interesting food items along the way, from the wallpaper paste known as “pap” to roasted Giraffe (which tastes like roast beef). I have also enjoyed some stunning and simply cooked spring bok, kudu, ostrich, alligator and warthog to name but a few, but moving from land to sea, the butter fish is certainly the one to try before you die. This firm but tender fish is called butter fish for a reason; it simply melts in the mouth; as they say in SA – it’s divine!Butter fish sound good to you? Find flights to South Africa now! Alan Coxon – ‘Food Archaeologist’, TV Chef, presenter and writer – tells us what would be on his menu of gourmet dishes and ingredients from around the world that you must try before you die! UK: Old English Ale-GarThis will appear totally self-indulgent and biased beyond belief, but if I can’t shout about it – who can? I have created an ultimate and unique ingredient called “Mediaeval Old English 15th century Ale-Gar”.Ale-Gar has won 5 gold innovation and superior taste awards to date and is the biggest ‘ale-ternative’ to a Balsamic vinegar in history, in fact pre-dating it by nearly 150 years.Ale-Gar is created from an ancient ale-based recipe which was soured and used as a preservative. It was once enjoyed by Queen Elizabeth 1st but disappeared into oblivion around the 17th century when it was replaced by imported French vinegars.Ale-Gar has flavours reminiscent of a wet Christmas pudding, hints of chocolate malt, cinnamon and warmth exuding from oak and smoke from the aged maturing barrel.It can be used instead of a Balsamic, Worcester sauce or soy sauce. Add a splash to a meat pie or beef casserole; use it as a marinade or drizzled over oysters; or add a dash to your bloody Mar. The unique flavour of Ale-Gar means you really need to try it before you die!____With three cookbooks, an historic food range, along with numerous radio, magazine and live appearances to his name, Alan has cemented his place among cookery’s broadcasting elite.

It was typically rather large by European or even global standards; oozing with the most tender and superb tasting hand-carved meat, layered between warm, fresh, sourdough bread and thickly layered mustard mayonnaise, it was certainly enough for two!The crisp golden fries cooked in truffle oil filled the summer air with a warm musty aroma given off by the revered dark black fungus, and topped with finely and freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
