US vetoes Security Council resolution on violence in Gaza

The United Nations Security Council failed today to adopt a draft resolution calling for the immediate and unconditional release of the Israeli soldier abducted by Palestinian armed groups from Gaza and for a halt to what it called a “disproportionate” military reaction by Israel, due to a veto by the United States, which called the text unbalanced and outdated. Denmark, Peru, Slovakia and United Kingdom abstained from voting on the draft, which also called for the release of all Palestinian officials detained by Israel and called on the Palestinian Authority to take “immediate and sustained” action to bring and end the firing of rockets from Gaza into Israel.The text would have explicitly condemned Israel’s current “military assault” in Gaza, which, it said, “has caused the killing and injury of dozens of Palestinian civilians” and destroyed Gaza’s main power station.In addition, the draft called on the international community to provide emergency assistance to the Palestinian people to help alleviate the dire humanitarian situation, and on the Israeli Government to restore and maintain the continuous and uninterrupted supply of fuel to Gaza, and to “act expeditiously” to replace destroyed equipment at the power plant. Explaining Washington’s negative vote, Ambassador John Bolton of the United States said the text did not reflect important new developments, including the fact that the Secretary-General is sending a team to the region. Calling the draft “unbalanced,” Ambassador Bolton said it “placed demands on one side of the Middle East conflict but not the other.” If adopted, the text would have exacerbated tensions in the region while undermining the vision of a two-State solution as well as the credibility of the Security Council itself, he said, adding that the United States had worked to achieve a more balanced text, one which acknowledged that Israeli actions came in response to attacks, but no agreement had been reached. read more

Climate Summit All hands on deck declares Ban calling for leadership concrete

We are not here to talk, we are here to make history, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today told world leaders at an “unprecedented and important gathering” that aims to raise ambition, mobilize resources, and generate action towards a universal climate deal.“The human, environmental and financial cost of climate change is fast becoming unbearable,” Mr. Ban told the opening ceremony of his much-anticipated Climate Summit in the General Assembly Hall. “We need a clear shared vision.”Many of the more than 120 Heads of States and Government, business, finance and civil society representatives are today expected to announce commitments that will reduce emissions, enhance resistance to climate change and mobilize financing for climate action.“I am asking you to lead,” Mr. Ban told them. “We must cut emissions. Science says they must peak by 2020 and decline sharply thereafter. By the end of this century we must be carbon neutral.”Underscoring the importance of climate change as the defining issue of our age, Mr. Ban noted that the international community’s response today will define the future.He noted that UN Headquarters, which was heavily impacted by Super Storm Sandy, will be carbon neutral by 2020.“To ride this storm we need all hands on deck,” the top United Nations official summed. “Today we must set the world on a new course.” Over the course of the day, participants will announce national action and ambition plans, and take part in thematic discussions on topics ranging from climate science to climate, health and jobs. The UN also hopes to raise at least $10-15 billion during the Summit for the flagship Green Climate Fund created to support developing countries on their path to low-emission and climate resilient development.Speaking to journalists later in the day, Mr. Ban recalled walking in the People’s March on Sunday with more than 300,000 people concerned about climate change.“They asked me to bring their voices into the halls of the United Nations,” he said in reference to a box he was given with 2 million signatures. “That is what I have done. Our duty now is to listen,” he added in a press conference alongside President François Hollande of France and Peru’s President Ollanta Humala.Mr. Ban highlighted some of the announcements being made at today’s Summit.They include a Mayor’s Compact, signed by more than 200 mayors representing 400 million people, to reduce annual emissions by between 12.4 and 16.4 per cent.The UN chief also noted some announcements by some of the world’s largest and most well-known companies to adapt their supply chains to reduce emissions and build resilience to climate change, as well as assist 500 million farmers in the process.Among other announcements, oil and gas companies are to pledge efforts to curb the release of methane gas, and some of the largest financial institutions will shift more than 200 billion dollars toward building low-carbon economies by 2015.Also addressing today’s opening, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said there is only one option – urgent, daring action on climate change.

On Sunday, Mr. de Blasio announced that New York City is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80 per cent by 2050.Each of the last three decades has been successively warmer at the earth’s surface than any other decade since 1850, noted the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Chairperson, Rajendra Pachauri.“How on Earth can we leave our children with a world like this,” he asked. “I’m not sure I could stand before you if the threats of climate change had no solutions. But they do.”“We are told the costs of limiting climate change are unaffordable – they are not, but wait until you get the bill for inaction,” Mr. Pachauri added.Former United States Vice-President Al Gore underscored that the world has entered a period of consequences. “The path to change is here,” he noted. “All we need is political will. But political will is a renewable resource.”Participants also heard from newly-appointed UN Messenger of Peace Leonardo DiCaprio who said he was speaking not as an expert but as one of the 400,000 concerned citizens who marched in New York on Sunday, as part of the worldwide Peoples’ Climate March demonstrations. “As an actor I pretend for a living, I play fictitious characters often solving fictitious problems. I believe mankind has looked at climate change in the same way, as if pretending climate change wasn’t real it would go away. But I think we know now that isn’t the case,” he said.Listing of aspects of climate change, such as ocean acidification and melting glaciers, he underscored that “none of this is rhetoric, none of this hysteria, this is fact.”Mr. DiCaprio addressed the Summit ahead of actor Li Bingbing, a UN Environment Programme (UNEP) Goodwill Ambassador.Speaking on behalf of civil society, Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner from the Marshall Islands, delivered a moving poem to her infant daughter saying that she “won’t let her down” on climate change action. The infant was brought onstage, met with a standing ovation. Before the Government officials spoke, the President of the General Assembly, Sam Kutesa, highlighted the two objectives of the meeting – to generate ambitious action on cutting gas emissions, increasing resilience and propelling the world towards a cleaner, greener economy, and to mobilize political will towards a meaningful, universal climate change agreement in Paris in 2015.Those climate talks are being overseen by the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which is the parent treaty of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol. read more

Watch Heres Why Ancient Romans Drew Penises on Everything

first_img 10,000-Year-Old ‘Chewing Gum’ Contains Oldest Scandinavian Human DNA160,000-Year-Old Denisovan Jawbone Found in Tibet Cave Stay on target In 122 A.D., Roman Emperor Hadrian built a wall that stretched almost 80 miles from the Irish Sea to the North Sea in northern England to guard the wild north-west frontier of the Roman Empire. Today, it’s one of the United Kingdom’s most famous structures.The fact that Hadrian’s Wall still stands today is a testament to the builders’ construction skills, but the wall is also famous for one strange feature – it’s covered in at least 57 separate depictions of penises.In a new episode of the Smithsonian Channel series Mystic Britain, anthropologists and co-host/comedian Clive Anderson examine the wall, the most impressive legacy of the Roman Empire’s 400-year rule in ancient Britain.It turns out that the phalluses on the wall weren’t a result of ancient vandals, but were actually a symbol used to protect the Romans from the evil eye of enemies. In fact, penis carvings and drawings are found across ancient Roman military sites and were a mystical way to protect the soldiers from intruding barbarians.The Mystic Britain episode “Hadrian’s Mystic Wall” premieres Monday, August 19 at 9 p.m. In it, Clive and anthropologist Mary-Ann Ochota travel to the ancient Roman fort town of Vindolanda, Hexham Abbey, the Treasure House in Hull, and of course, the mystical Hadrian’s Wall.Future episodes of Mystic Britain on Smithsonian Channel will also explore Britain’s other strange sites and supernatural beliefs, including its best-preserved medieval village, where a jumble of bones were found 50 years ago; Bronze Age British mummies; and of course, Stonehenge, Britain’s greatest Stone Age monument.More on 13-Foot ‘Queen of the Pythons’ Lays Massive Clutch of EggsWatch: Rare Albino Orangutan Alba Goes to ‘Orangutan Jungle School’Science Proves That the Romans Were Pretty Smartlast_img read more

Alaskas Capital City Braces for Potential Layoffs

first_imgOf the 16,000 State of Alaska employees, more than a quarter of them work in the capital city. On their lunch break, state employees at the State Office Building talked about their tentative employment future.Download Audio:Britten Burkhouse says her office at the Department of Health and Social Services was pretty quiet after getting the email from Gov. Bill Walker about potential state layoffs.“I think we were all just dealing with the punch. Recuperating maybe a little bit. It wasn’t a very good thing on a Monday.”Burkhouse isn’t surprised by the email. The threat of a government shutdown and layoffs has been a possibility since the legislature recessed at the end of April, but she says it makes the situation seem more desperate. She thinks Gov. Walker is doing the best he can, but,“It’s come to the point where maybe he’s using state employees as leverage to kind of get the Legislature to act.”Burkhouse is a grants administrator for the department. She says she makes sure nonprofits get money to provide services for Alaskans.“State employees do more than just show up to work every day. We actually help protect the life, health and safety of Alaskans.”Mike Lewis has been a state worker for 15 years. He’s the lead courier in mail services. Over the years, he’s made sure Alaskans get their Permanent Fund Dividend checks. He says the potential layoffs are all part of a game.“This is what they do. It’s government. It’s politics. I don’t like politics because of this.”And he doesn’t think there’s anything he can do, like contacting a legislator, to change the situation.“It’s the big people up there that make all the decisions. I don’t think they care much about the little guys.”If he’s laid off,“I’ll go fishing, crabbing – all the things I can do when I’m off. If it’s only a week, it wouldn’t bother me that much, but if it’s longer than that it’s the financial thing.”Twenty-three-year-old Mackenzie Merrill just wants to have job stability. Before this email, she says she was getting other ones about positions getting cut. She’s only an economist with the Department of Revenue for only eight months. It’s her first job out of college.“I just signed a year-long lease and I want to work here and I want to save money for my future. I went to college. This is what I signed up for. Entering the state during a severe fiscal uncertainty has been disappointing.”Merrill has a vacation planned in July anyway, when layoffs could begin. But she’d like to know that she has a job to come back to.last_img read more

Texas Firefighters Highlight Increasing PTSD Rates At A Houston Conference

first_img 00:00 /01:13 X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Ed Mayberry Houston Public MediaFire department vehicles parked in front of a home in Conroe that collapsed during a fire, killing three children and critically injuring three others.Firefighters in Houston and across the state are experiencing symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder and other health issues similar to that of military veterans.That’s according to Marty Lancton of the Houston Professional Fire Fighters Association. Lancton says with the sheer volumes of calls area departments receive, a firefighter’s daily job can be just as traumatic as a soldier in the line of duty.He says firefighters are expected to respond immediately to a call at a moment’s notice – and be 100% right, 100% of the time.“We have a large majority of our firefighters that are ex-military,” says Lancton. “So when they’ve gotten out of the military, they’re now coming in and — they serve their country and they’re serving the citizens of Houston. And that’s admirable. And what we’ve said is we cannot leave firefighters behind and we cannot not address these issues.”Members from the Houston Professional Fire Fighters Association along with national experts and more than 30 firefighters from across the state held a ‘peer-support’ training conference in Houston last week designed to help add resources for firefighters in need.The conference covered topics like job-related post-traumatic stress, substance abuse, family problems, treatment options as well as establishing measures of trust and confidentiality.According to the latest report by the International Association of Fire Fighters, almost 20 percent of firefighters and paramedics had PTSD, compared with the general population’s rate of 3.5 percent.

Roomba Once Was Blind But Now It Sees

first_imgSeptember 17, 2015 2 min read Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Automated device maker iRobot, which has sold 14 million robotic vacuums worldwide, just announced a major play for the Internet of Things with its Roomba 980, the company’s first connected vacuum with an affixed camera for smarter home navigation.At a lofty press event yesterday in Manhattan, where CEO Colin Angle likened Roomba’s household cleaning expeditions to those of Lewis and Clark in their discovery of the Pacific Coast, the company positioned its latest Roomba as a foray into the connected home market — which is expected to be worth $71 billion by 2018.“iRobot is positioning itself not just to be the best vacuum in the world,” Angle said, “[but to] lead us toward a future where robots can do much more in service of humanity.”If the old Roomba was blind, says Christian Cerda, iRobot’s SVP and general manager of Home Robots, the latest model — priced at a hefty $899 — can see.Related: The Robot Battle of Your Childhood Dreams Is Actually HappeningAs opposed to previous models, which could only clean two or three rooms and react to obstacles reflexively, the Roomba 980 uses sensors and cameras to build a map of its surroundings as it moves for a smarter cleaning job. A battery charge lasts up to two hours — at which point the Roomba scoots back to its base, powers up and then gets back to work.This is the first Roomba that is Wi-Fi-connected and can be operated by smartphones with a dedicated app to schedule cleanings, the company said.Connectivity also means that iRobot collects data from its machines — though the company is only “collecting average data” about cleaning performance and not videos or images, Cerda assures. “We have developed it against hacking, we have tested it against hacking,” he says, his voice trailing off, “but hopefully that will never happen.”The company expects the 980 to become the most popular connected home product in the world within a year, Cerda said, at which point iRobot plans to bring connectivity to different devices beyond its beloved Roombas. Related: This Startup’s Mission: A 3-D Printer in Every Homecenter_img Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Register Now »last_img read more

Fujifilm Highlighting Digital Radiography Solutions at AHRA

Putins hard line against protests to be tested

first_img New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths 4 sleep positions for men and what they mean More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family Putin has cracked down on the opposition since returning to the presidency, and he seems to be betting that by threatening demonstrators with prison time and harsh fines he can quash the street protests that have posed an unprecedented challenge to his 12-year rule.Putin said that the law is designed to safeguard Russians from “radicalism.”“In guaranteeing citizens’ right to express their opinion, including in street rallies, society must protect other citizens, the general public, from radicalism,” he said in televised remarks. He added, however, that the law may be amended if necessary.His strategy faces a major test on Tuesday when the opposition plans its first mass demonstration since he began his third presidential term on May 7.Some opposition leaders contend that the tough line will help their cause by fueling anger and bringing more people out for next week’s protest. Others say the repression will scare away the middle-class protesters who turned out in the tens of thousands for peaceful demonstrations this winter.Putin, for his part, is refusing any talks with the opposition.“He understands only one language, the language of force, and therefore he perceives any normal discussion and any rational compromise as personal weakness,” said Yevgenia Chirikova, an environmental activist who has campaigned against Kremlin-backed road construction that is destroying a forest outside Moscow. With the election over, the protest movement seemed to fade.But on the eve of Putin’s inauguration, an opposition march and rally drew tens of thousands, far more than either the organizers or the police had expected. The demonstration turned violent after police restricted access to the square where the rally was to be held. Bottles and pieces of asphalt were hurled at police, who struck back by beating protesters with truncheons and detaining more than 400. Some demonstrators were dragged away by their hair. Opposition leaders claim the clash was provoked by pro-Kremlin thugs.In the days that followed, police chased opposition activists around the city, detaining hundreds.Then the crackdown eased, as the authorities allowed the opposition to set up camp on a leafy boulevard. But there were strings attached: The organizers could not put up placards or make political demands, since that would technically turn the camp into an unsanctioned protest.The authorities tolerated the camp for about a week before getting a court to rule that the activists were creating a mess in the neighborhood, giving police the legal right to disperse them.The anti-protest legislation also provides police with new powers against such Occupy-style camps. “Large-scale public gatherings” can be banned and the organizers fined if they disrupt public order. Associated PressMOSCOW (AP) – Helmeted riot police round up hundreds of protesters, including some whose only apparent crime is wearing white ribbons of opposition. A teacher who spoke out about election rigging is dragged into court and fined. Now a new law signed by President Vladimir Putin on Friday raises fines for participating in unauthorized protests 150-fold, to nearly the average annual salary in Russia. Top Stories Comments   Share   Early signs of cataracts in your parents and how to help In a Levada poll released Thursday, 65 percent said they expected the protests to continue, although they differed on how likely the protests were to intensify or spread. The poll, conducted May 25-29 among 1,604 people across Russia, has a margin of error of 3.4 percentage points.The bill was rushed through the Kremlin-controlled parliament this week in an effort to get it in place before Tuesday’s big protest.Some opposition leaders had held out hope that Putin would refuse to sign it. Others, however, had said they had no illusions, pointing to a comment by Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov after the violence on the eve of the inauguration. Protesters who hurt riot police, he said, “should have their livers smeared on the asphalt.”It was the kind of language that Putin likes.___Irina Titova in St. Petersburg contributed to this report.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates Chirikova and Ilya Yashin, who recently spent 15 days in jail for leading unsanctioned protests, were among a group of opposition leaders who met Thursday in Moscow to discuss the implications of the new law, which jacks up fines to 300,000 rubles ($9,000).Yashin tried to ease worries, saying protest leaders would collect donations for those punished, as was done within hours when St. Petersburg teacher Tatyana Ivanova was fined 30,000 rubles ($1,000) last week. Ivanova was found guilty of damaging the reputation of an education department official she had accused of pressuring her and other poll workers to falsify the December parliamentary vote.The anti-Putin protests broke out after the December election, which observers said was riddled with fraud in favor of Putin’s party, and continued in the run-up to the March presidential vote. As many as 100,000 people turned out in the frigid cold for demonstrations demanding free elections, and the streets of Moscow rang with cries of “Russia Without Putin” and “Putin Is a Thief.”Although he was denied a majority in Moscow, Putin won the election to return to the Kremlin post he had held from 2000 to 2008 before moving into the prime minister’s office to avoid violating a constitutional ban on more than two consecutive terms.

Deadline to liberalise energy market passes again

first_imgLegislators warned on Tuesday that Cyprus could be liable to significant fines from the EU, after learning that the timetable for opening up the energy market has past again with the transition now being pushed back from July 2019 to ‘sometime in 2020’ in the best-case scenario.The delay, MPs learned, is due to complications arising with a tender for the purchase of specialised software that is indispensable for the operation of the new system.The Electricity Authority of Cyprus (EAC), which handled the tender concerning software to be purchased by the Distribution System Operator (DSO), declined the offer made to it.The preferred tenderer has since challenged the decision with the Tenders Review Authority, which must rule on the matter before the matter can progress any further.It is no secret that the state-run power company – currently the only producer of electricity in Cyprus – is averse to the opening up of the market.The DSO and TSO (Transmission System Operator) are effectively arms of the Electricity Authority. But since these two bodies have been designated as monitors once the market opens up, giving them access to suppliers’ proprietary data, they need to be rendered ‘independent’.“It appears that the goal of transitioning to a free market has been postponed to sometime within 2020,” Disy MP Andreas Kyprianou said.The DSO, he added, would need approximately 15 to 18 months after the award of the now hung tender to be in a position to operate the system.Akel’s Costa Costa accused the government of botching the whole matter.“The government’s sloppy handling has been proved yet again today, confirming our concerns that there is no way we can meet our goals, which are binding from the EU, for the penetration of renewable energy sources into the electricity grid.”The TSO and the DSO had been supposed to be ready for the switch to the open market by July 2019 and April 2019, respectively.Under full liberalisation, an ‘electricity exchange’ of sorts will be established, where suppliers’ bids for quantities of electricity will be updated every half an hour.The exchange will match supply and demand and fix the price for a contract.Essentially the Electricity Authority of Cyprus will act as a pool, or cache, of electricity.The electricity exchange platform would be operated by the TSO, which will gain the added capacity of acting as market operator in addition to monitoring security of the overall electricity supply.The system matching bids requires complex software, which needs to be customised to the particulars of the Cyprus electricity market.You May LikeDrhealth35 Foods That Should Never Be Placed in the RefrigeratorDrhealthUndoHearing Aids | Search AdsCan’t Hear Well?

Ioannou warns against fear and panic over flu

first_imgFear and panic over misinformation about the outbreak of influenza is clogging public hospitals, limiting their ability to respond to actual cases of flu, and exposing the non-infected to the risk of getting infected by other patients, Health Minister Constantinos Ioannou said on Friday.Ioannou was adamant there was no epidemic, calling on the public to refrain from panicking as A&Es were being flooded by fearful people, leaving medical officials unable to do their job. The media hype was not helping either, he said.“Unnecessary panic is being created, resulting in the First Aid departments being flooded by people, which does not allow health care workers to do their job as they would under normal circumstances,” Ioannou said. “The publication of inaccurate or untrue information causes panic.”To date, 40 serious cases of type A flu have been diagnosed, of which seven have resulted in death.It was the death on Thursday, of a 34-year-old man with no apparent underlying health conditions that created the most disquiet among the public. It also sparked an investigation by the health ministry, and highlighted the pressure under which hospitals were operating.“The influenza A cases constitute an outbreak, not an epidemic as some refer to it,” Ioannou said. He said the health ministry has an epidemiological surveillance unit and an epidemic is designated on the basis of international criteria.According to the World Health Organisation, an epidemic is “the occurrence in a community or region of cases of an illness, specific health-related behaviour, or other health-related events clearly in excess of normal expectancy”“The number of cases indicating the presence of an epidemic varies according to the agent, size, and type of population exposed, previous experience or lack of exposure to the disease, and time and place of occurrence,” it adds.“Based on the parameters and incidents that exist, the occurrence in the population cannot be described as an epidemic,” Ioannou said. “When it comes to health issues, we must be two and three times more cautious [about what is said].”The minister also chastised the “inappropriate behaviour” of some MPs, who interfere daily on behalf of certain patients, landing them with priority treatment, while others are pushed further back in line, which happened at least one of the flu cases.Responding to a question on this, Ioannou said it should not even be a question and it should be self-evident that patients “should be treated with regard to the criticality of their illness and not whether they have connections or not”.“When someone gets a phone call, one patient gets priority over another to the detriment of the other. I consider that all patients should be treated equally,” he said, conceding however that such phone calls were being made on behalf of some patients. “That’s what is happening and we do not deny it,” the minister said.Speaking of the case involving the 34-year-old, Ioannou said that he had received the initial investigation report from the general manager of the state health services (Okypy) on Thursday noon but found it lacking and had requested further information.He added that later on Thursday night medical reports were submitted from the Larnaca and Nicosia general hospitals, as the 34-year-old was first taken to the Larnaca hospital before being transferred to Nicosia.On Friday morning, Ioannou continued, the director of the health ministry’s medical services was appointed to carry out an administrative inquiry into whether there was any disciplinary misconduct involved.The minister said no timetable was set for the investigation because of the severity of the case, noting that the director of the medical services would have at her disposal all the time needed to determine if there was any wrong behaviour.Even so, Ioannou said that the way in which the 34-year-old’s death was treated by some media outlets created unnecessary panic.Regarding the availability of flu vaccines in public hospitals, Ioannou said that there was  1,000 in stock, and an additional 5,000 had been ordered, which is a larger amount compared to previous years.Around 5,000 more would be ordered if necessary, the minister said, but clarified that flu vaccines were only administered to vulnerable groups as they were not a solution for the general population.Individuals vulnerable to type A flu are those aged over 65, or suffering from chronic disease, people with immunodeficiency issues and pregnant women.This week, three bulletins outlining precautionary measures that must be taken by the public, as well as guidelines regarding public and private hospitals in case of flu infection, the minister said. You May LikeYahoo SearchThe Early Signs Of Type 2 Diabetes.
