Libya UN chief welcomes formation of new interim Government

“The Secretary-General wishes the new interim Government every success in addressing the numerous challenges facing Libya in this transitional period, including the crucial issues of national reconciliation, public security, human rights protection, and the resumption of basic services to the Libyan people,” said a statement issued by his spokesperson.Mr. Ban reiterated United Nations commitment to fully supporting the new Government and the Libyan people, in accordance with its mandate as stipulated in a Security Council resolution.He said the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), under the leadership of the Secretary-General’s Special Representative, Ian Martin, will continue to work closely with the interim Government and the National Transitional Council (NTC) as they move towards building “a modern, peaceful, democratic and prosperous Libya.”The NTC declared the full liberation of Libya on 23 October, more than eight months after the start of the popular uprising against the regime of long-time ruler Colonel Muammar al-Qadhafi.Mr. Qadhafi, who had been on the run as his regime collapsed, was captured by then opposition fighters on 20 October and killed. 23 November 2011Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today welcomed the formation of the new interim Government in Libya and congratulated Prime Minister Abdurrahim El-Keib and members of his cabinet. read more

Security Council decides to maintain timber sanctions on Liberia

In a statement to the press, Council President Fayssal Mekdad of Syria said the 15-nation body had been briefed today on recent reports submitted by Secretary-General Kofi Annan and its own the expert panel on Liberia on the possible humanitarian and socio-economic impact of the timber sanctions that went into effect on 7 July.Mr. Mekdad said Council members welcomed the two reports that provided a preliminary, though useful, assessment of the possible humanitarian and socio-economic impact of timber sanctions and noted that the conflict in Liberia during the reporting period made it difficult to obtain an accurate assessment that would enable the Council to decide how best to minimize that effect.”In the context of the rapidly evolving, yet fragile, situation in Liberia,” Mr. Mekdad said, “the members of the Council considered that it was premature to draw definitive conclusions regarding the timber sanctions and their possible impact.” He added that Council members agreed that the concern over the possible use of timber revenues to fuel the conflict in violation of the Security Council resolutions remained valid and, hence, the need to maintain the timber sanctions for the time being.”At the same time, members stressed that the timber sanctions should not lead to a deterioration of the humanitarian situation,” he said, adding that the Council underscored two priority areas – improvement in the security situation and the need for increased humanitarian assistance.”Members of the Council also recognized the important role that a well-managed and transparent timber industry could play in Liberia’s rebuilding and long-term development, and the need to adequately assist the Government of Liberia in that regard,” the Council President said.The members were of the view that the developments in Liberia in the coming weeks and months would be of direct relevance to the Council’s review of the sanctions regime on Liberia, according to Mr. Mekdad.”Once the situation stabilizes in Liberia, the Council would be better placed to consider the issue of timber sanctions and the various possible options for minimizing any impact,” Mr. Mekdad said, stressing that the members also underlined the importance of a review and monitoring arrangement to assess the progress with regard to the desired transition of the timber industry and the need to keep track of the possible impact of the timber sanctions.Finally, he said the Council had welcomed recent positive developments in Liberia, but noted with serious concern the human rights situation and the reports of renewed fighting in some areas, and urged all Liberian parties to the conflict to fully abide by the ceasefire agreement and the comprehensive peace plan signed on 18 August. read more

No new Ebola cases reported in most of Liberia counties over past

The three regions that are still reporting new cases in Liberia include Grand Cape Mount, Margibi and Montserrado, a UN spokesman told reporters in New York this afternoon. Farhan Haq also said that according to the UN World Health Organization (WHO), Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone all reported their lowest weekly total of new cases in months. Guinea reported its lowest weekly total of new cases since 17 of August 2014. Liberia has had no confirmed cases nationally for the final two days of the week ending the 11th of January 2015. And Sierra Leone has recorded its lowest total of new cases since 31 August 2014. The spokesperson also said that UNMEER was welcoming these new developments as ‘very good’ progress but was also cautioning all involved in the fight against the virus to remain on high alert and continue the high intensity of response efforts. Additionally, over the weekend, WHO, UNMEER and the Malian Government declared Mali free from active Ebola transmission. read more

Winterwatch goes wild and heads for the Highlands

Ms Edwards admitted that they  would not have any real idea of which animals will star in the show until they began filming in the Scottish wilderness.“So much depends on the type of winter and spring the wildlife has endured,” she said. “Some animals will do amazingly well and some won’t.”The BBC team has experienced snow, hurricanes and balmy temperatures during its previous filming in Scotland.The team will start planning meetings tomorrow (MON) and will begin filming in late December, staking out locations as they work out which animals will provide the best footage.Around 80 people will be involved in producing Winterwatch, including the local partners and wildlife experts who help the BBC team get the best shots.They will work through incredibly long days, starting at 7.30am and filming late into the night as some of the best action occurs after dark. Ms Edwards said: “I’m really excited about it. When you are in one place for a year you get to know the surroundings and the habitats very well, it’s a more immersive experience.”“Around 70 per cent of the area is deemed of international importance so you couldn’t have a better location.”This year was the first time the show based itself in one location for all three seasons, filming the farmland, birds and countryside of Gloucestershire for Winterwatch, Springwatch and Autumnwatch.Ms Edwards said: “We had never done countryside, we normally do reserves which are managed but we wanted to film in a part of the countryside where anyone can go.”Michaela Strachan said: “I’m so excited to be going to the Cairngorms for Winterwatch. It’s such a stunning place. Full of wildlife, dramatic, wild and very, very cold! The wildlife always delivers from Golden Eagles to Mountain Hares, Wild Cats to Black Grouse, Ptarmigan, Pine Marten, Red Squirrel, Water Vole, Otter. The Highlands have a wonderful diversity of wildlife and habitats. It’s one of those places in the UK where you can really connect with the natural environment.”Chris Packham said: “Scotland – land of the brave, home of the wild and hope for the UK’s wildlife. This is the happening zone in conservation and home to the most amazing diversity of sexy species. I can’t wait”. Snow-covered landscape in the Cairngorms, in the Scottish Highland Winterwatch viewers will be transported directly into the habitats of one of the wildest places in the UK, when the BBC team relocates to the Cairngorms.In a vast contrast to the rolling countryside of the Cotswolds, where the show was based throughout 2018, producers are hoping to capture the residents of Scotland’s snow-capped mountains, ancient forests, raging rivers and deep, silent lochs.Presenters Chris Packham, Michaela Strachan and Gillian Burke will host the next series of the show in the depths of winter in one of the toughest places in the country for animals, watching as they adapt to get through this toughest of seasons.Rosemary Edwards, the executive producer, told the Sunday Telegraph: “We wanted to do something completely different. We wanted to go as wild as we could in the UK. A lot of people don’t know how wild parts of Scotland are and to me, this is one of the wildest places you can visit in the UK.“It’s so remote, it’s in the mountainous region, surrounded by the largest amount of pine forests dating back almost to the the Ice Age, the landscape is epic. It’s very, very different to last year and we have never spent a year in the wild.” Snow-covered landscape in the Cairngorms, in the Scottish HighlandCredit:PA Two wildlife cameramen with long lenses will bury themselves in hides around the clock while two or three camera will be placed in habitats and monitored 24 hours a day by a team of young zoologists and filmmakers working in shifts who hit record the moment there is any action.The team will be on location for around a week before the four days of live shows. Gillian Burke said: “I cannot wait to get going and bring the best of British wildlife from our new home in the Cairngorms!

Oscar Pistorius breaks down in court as bail hearing postponed

first_imgA COURT WILL hear Oscar Pistorius’s bail application next Tuesday.The hearing was postponed today to give the defence team and the State more time to gather evidence. Both sides agreed to the delay.Magistrate Desmond Nair also ruled that cameras would not be allowed to film the proceedings.At the start of today’s hearing, the Paralympian broke down in tears with one local reporter stating he ‘sobbed uncontrollably’. The emotion came after an initial state of calm confidence, according to witnesses.When he entered the box he was visibly shaking and the judge told him to “calm down…you need to relax”.Pistorius had his head bowed as the charge was read out. He stands accused of murdering his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in the early hours of St Valentine’s Day.She was shot four times in the upper body and head with a 9mm pistol.It is understood that Pistorius will remain in custody until the hearing on Tuesday, 19 February. He will be held in a police station cell and not prison. The athlete’s lawyers asked for him to be kept in a police cell because of the high-profile nature of the case but the magistrate expressed concern this would be showing preferential treatment. However, the State did not oppose the arrangement.In an important revelation, prosecutors made it clear they were going to pursue a pre-meditated murder charge.According to eNCA, the sprinter cried and “his whole body reacted” on hearing that news.“The State isn’t buying any suggestion that this killing was an accident,” the station’s reporter added.On the other side, the defence has asked for a schedule five, and not schedule six, application. For a Schedule 6 offence, the accused has to give evidence to satisfy the court that exceptional circumstances exist in which the interests of justice permit his release. For a Schedule 5 offence, the accused has to present evidence to satisfy the court that the interests of justice permit his release.Oscar Pistorius’ brother Carl outside the Boschkop police station. (Image: Kobus van Rensburg/EMPICS Entertainment)The Pretoria court room was packed with members of the public and media personnel today.Dressed in a dark blue suit and covering his face, the 26-year-old was surrounded by family when being escorted from Boschkop police station.The athlete became the first amputee to compete in the Olympics at London 2012 having previously enjoyed significant success at the Paralympic Games.He won gold in the 4×400 relay at the most recent Paralympic event in London last year.A congenital condition meant he had to have both legs amputated below the knee before he was aged one. Last year he was named by Time magazine as one of the world’s 100 most influential people.Earlier: Oscar Pistorius arrives in court to face girlfriend murder chargeslast_img read more

Greek premier promises tax cuts security

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram In the final straight of campaigning ahead of critical snap elections on Sunday, Prime Minister Antonis Samaras on Monday promised tax cuts and cast New Democracy as the safe choice for Greece opposite an inconsistent SYRIZA.In a speech before the Athens Chamber of Commerce and Industry last night, Samaras said an ND administration would gradually reduce the corporate tax rate to 15 percent from 25 percent and scale back a unified property tax (ENFIA), starting with a 7 percent cut this year. He lashed out at SYRIZA for a lack of clarity on tax pledges – he claimed the leftists would impose a “barrage of taxes” despite their claims to the contrary – and slammed the party’s plans to rehire sacked civil servants and reverse privatizations.SYRIZA officials, for their part, insisted the party would introduce a fair tax system and crack down on large-scale evaders along with corruption.Meanwhile, amid speculation about potential alliances, PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos told Italian newspaper La Stampa he could work with SYRIZA’s leader. “Tsipras is like Harry Potter but if necessary we will cooperate with them,” he said.Rhetoric sharpened in both the SYRIZA and New Democracy camps as the latest opinion poll, carried out by the University of Macedonia for Skai, showed the leftists widening their lead over ND to 5.5 points, garnering 33.5 percent compared to 27 percent for ND. To Potami ranks third with 7.5 percent followed by Golden Dawn and the Communist Party (KKE) with 5.5 percent each.As SYRIZA pushes its anti-austerity agenda while insisting that Greece’s position in the eurozone and solvency are not under threat, the country’s international creditors issued fresh warnings.German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she hoped Greeks would “vote responsibly” and that the principle of “solidarity in exchange for reforms” would apply, referring to the insistence of creditors that Greek authorities pursue a tough economic program in exchange for rescue loans.European Economic and Financial Affairs Commissioner Pierre Moscovici struck a similar tone on Monday, telling a seminar at the Bruegel economic think tank that eurozone integrity is not at threat. “We don’t fear what will happen in the Greek elections on Sunday. We are prepared for all kinds of scenarios in Greece,” he said.European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, for his part, stressed that any new government in Greece “will have to respect commitments already made and stay the course of reform and fiscal responsibility.”Meanwhile the head of the International Monetary Fund, Christine Lagarde, warned of “consequences” if European countries seek to restructure their debts – a stated priority of leftist SYRIZA. “As a principle, collective endeavors are welcome but at the same time a debt is a debt and it is a contract,” Lagarde told The Irish Times in an interview when questioned about SYRIZA’s calls for a European debt conference. “Defaulting, restructuring, changing the terms has consequences on the signature and the confidence in the signature,” Lagarde said.Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

Australias immigration levels hit record highs for 2018

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Australia’s population growth pace of 1.6 per cent is the highest in the developed world, and is double that of the United States and United Kingdom.The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) figures had forecast that the country’s population wouldn’t reach between 23.5 and 26.4 million until 2051, however in reached the 25 million milestone in August last year.New ABS figures show that permanent migration levels have soared to record highs with 832,560 permanent migrants deciding to call Australia home in 2018, a 7.1 per cent increase from 2017 that had also set a record with a 539,000 intake.  Net migration is 291,250 – the highest in four and a half years.New Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) analysis, released last week, shows that in 2016 half of the 1.5 million temporary residents in Australia were living in Sydney (27 per cent) and Melbourne (24 per cent) with a further 14 per cent calling Brisbane home.The new figures were released just three months after Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, a former immigration minister, had promised to reduce the immigration intake and also improve the way in which population growth is managed in the country. However, as treasurer before taking on the role of Prime Minister, Mr Morrison had stressed that population growth had also “played a key role in our economic success”. last_img read more

Alleged indecent exposure leads to arrest

first_imgVancouver police on Thursday evening arrested a man on suspicion of indecent exposure outside Marshall Community Park.Alan F. Wahl, 54, of Vancouver was booked into the Clark County Jail on suspicion of indecent exposure and resisting arrest, said Kim Kapp, Vancouver Police Department spokeswoman.James M. Smith Sr. said he spotted Wahl sitting in a red sedan outside the park masturbating with a blanket over his lap. Smith, who takes his 9- and 13-year-old boys to the park on a daily basis, called 911 to report the incident.“My first instinct was to go kick in his door,” Smith said. “I’m glad I didn’t do that in hindsight.”Vancouver police Officer Brian Ruder arrived and, once he verified what was going on, tried to get Wahl out of the car, Kapp said. Ruder eventually pulled the man out of the vehicle, and the man was handcuffed after officers used a Taser device. Two other officers responded.Wahl was taken to a local hospital for treatment of a scrape to the head, Kapp said, and then taken to jail.Around 30 kids and 12 parents were in the park at the time, according to police reports.Smith said he’s seen some strange activity in the park but nothing like that. “It was a very sick feeling,” he said of the situation. He said he’s glad police were able to respond and added that he’ll be vigilant in the future.“Our park will be safe this weekend, that’s for sure,” he said.last_img read more

Credit: Aki Takigawa As scientists look to the stars to understand the nature of the universe, they also seek answers regarding universal origins. The Big Bang, theory, for example, suggests how things might have started, but what processes led to the creation of atoms, for example? In this new effort, the researchers believe they may have found a source: W Hydrae, a star that is part of the Hydrae constellation and is classified as an asymptotic giant branch (AGB) star—stars that are still evolving and are in the low to medium mass size. W Hydrae has approximately nine times the mass of our sun and is a popular object of study due to its brightness. Scientists have come to believe that the study of AGBs might offer clues regarding how the elements were created.Using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array of telescopes, the researchers observed W Hydrae, one of the brightest stars as seen from Earth. The researchers found evidence of aluminum oxide dust in its outer shell—within three “stellar radii.” The presence of the dust, the researchers suggest, might be a driver of stellar wind and perhaps a means of synthesizing atoms. In their theory, the aluminum oxide grows into grains and aggregates in the dust shell. The aggregates move more when struck by light from the star. As they move away from the star, they encounter silicate dust and continue to move away from the star, causing the stellar wind (the continues flow of charged particles emitted from the star) to pick up. As part of this process, atoms such as silicon and oxygen may be formed. They also suggest the process prevents silicate dust from forming efficiently around the star.center_img More information: Aki Takigawa et al. Dust formation and wind acceleration around the aluminum oxide–rich AGB star W Hydrae, Science Advances (2017). DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.aao2149AbstractDust grains, formed around asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars, are accelerated by stellar radiation to drive stellar winds, which supply freshly synthesized nuclides to the Galaxy. Silicate is the dominant dust species in space, but ~40% of oxygen-rich AGB stars are thought to have comparable amounts of aluminum oxide dust. Dust formation and the wind-driving mechanism around these oxygen-rich stars, however, are poorly understood. We report on the spatial distributions of AlO and 29SiO molecules around an aluminum oxide–rich M-type AGB star, W Hydrae, based on observations obtained with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array. AlO molecules were only observed within three stellar radii (Rstar), whereas 29SiO was distributed in the accelerated wind beyond 5 Rstar without significant depletion. This strongly suggests that condensed aluminum oxide dust plays a key role in accelerating the stellar wind and in preventing the efficient formation of silicate dust around W Hydrae.
