Liberia highlighting importance of rule of law top UN envoy hands over

The courts are in Maryland County, close to the once war-shattered nation’s border with Côte d’Ivoire, and were renovated by the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) through its Quick Impact Projects Initiative.”Without the rule of law, social and economic development cannot be accomplished,” said Alan Doss, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative, said at a handover ceremony, urging the people of the County to respect and support the court’s work as well as to work closely with law enforcement agencies to prevent crime.Although Mr. Doss will soon be leaving his position, he stressed that UNMIL will not be leaving Liberia, which is rebuilding after a brutal 14-year civil war.The County’s Superintendent Sie-Teba Neufville thanked the Mission for its support to the Judiciary and appealed to Mr. Doss to continue to promote Liberia’s tourism, agriculture and mining potential.To date, UNMIL has constructed and rehabilitated nine courthouses, and work is ongoing on five others.

Fidelitys money market funds sell off shortterm US government debt on debt

Fidelity’s money market funds sell off short-term US government debt on debt ceiling worries NEW YORK, N.Y. – The nation’s largest manager of money market mutual funds said Wednesday that it no longer holds any U.S. government debt that comes due around the time the nation could hit its borrowing limit.Money market portfolio managers at Fidelity Investments have been selling off their government debt holdings over the last couple of weeks, said Nancy Prior, president of Fidelity’s Money Market Group. While Fidelity expects the debt ceiling issue to be resolved, the Boston-based asset manager said it is taking steps to protect investors.Prior said that Fidelity no longer holds any U.S. debt that comes due in late October or early November, the window considered by many investors to be the most exposed if the government runs out of money and defaults on its obligations.“We expect Congress will take the steps necessary to avoid default, but in our position as money market managers we have to take precautionary measures,” Prior said.Fidelity, which manages $430 billion in money market mutual funds, has taken similar actions in the past. The most recent instance was in the summer of 2011, when the U.S. government came close to a default and Standard & Poor’s downgraded the nation’s credit rating, Prior said.She said Fidelity has been restructuring its portfolio to focus on securities that mature later this year or in early 2014. She said Fidelity has also moved a significant portion of its portfolio to cash.Money market funds are a significant part of the U.S. financial system, considered by investors as a safe place to put their money in the short-term. Individuals and institutional investors have roughly $2.685 trillion invested in money market funds, according to data from the Investment Company Institute.Money market funds are typically ultra-safe places to park money. They invest primarily in short-term debt that can be easily bought and sold, such as U.S. Treasurys or commercial paper, short-term debt issued by large companies to fund their day-to-day expenses. In a money market fund, investors expect to get back every dollar they invest.Fidelity’s actions underscore what traders have noticed the last week. Investors have dumped U.S. government debt that comes due this month, with the heaviest selling in one-month Treasury bills. The yield on the one-month T-bill jumped to 0.3 per cent Tuesday, its highest level since the 2008 financial crisis. The yield was nearly zero at the beginning of the month.Money market mutual fund managers don’t want to be caught holding U.S. government debt that comes due around the time the government hits the debt ceiling. They fear that the government could be unable to pay back bond holders, said Gabriel Mann at the Royal Bank of Scotland Group.“Investors are buying protection,” Mann said.A spokesman for Fidelity said it is unclear whether Fidelity holds any short-term U.S. government debt in any of its other mutual funds. Fidelity’s actions apply only to Fidelity’s money market portfolio.

Mature less mature and incremental how federal politics touched us this week

by Heather Scoffield, Ottawa Bureau Chief, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 30, 2017 2:30 pm MDT Last Updated Jul 1, 2017 at 5:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Mature, less mature and incremental: how federal politics touched us this week OTTAWA – There’s so much Canada-red and white on Parliament Hill that when the hundreds of thousands of bleary-eyed partygoers finally finish toasting the country’s 150th birthday this weekend, they will be seeing Ottawa awash in a pink haze.Viewing Canada through rose-coloured glasses was the tone of the week, as politicians repeatedly waxed poetic about the wonders of our history and the potential for our future.The stand-off between police and indigenous protesters on the Hill, on the other hand, was anything but poetic. Activists aiming to build a teepee on the grounds came nose-to-nose with tense Mounties on Wednesday night. The RCMP arrested a handful. But they eventually shared tobacco with the group and helped move the teepee to a more prominent spot.Government insiders had been bracing for demonstrations for months. But instead of the discord they feared would dominate Canada 150, there were weeks of discourse about reconciliation, culminating in Friday’s visit to the teepee by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie Gregoire.It may be too early to declare a new, mature age of Crown-indigenous relations, but there’s no doubt the political conversation this week was more about searching for understanding than casting blame.There were also some political developments on economics, lumber and China that will touch many of us. Here are three:PAYING IT BACKThe mature conversation that avoids casting blame did not extend to Trudeau’s comments on the fiscal framework. In comments to wrap up the parliamentary session, the prime minister insisted that he was keeping his election promise to curtail deficits to $10 billion, and that any totals that run higher than that are the previous Conservative government’s fault.Conspicuous by its absence was a date for when balance would return to the budget.The Bank of Canada was more substantive. It has been sending increasingly loud messages that rock-bottom interest rates are nearing an end, and that Canadians carrying large amounts of household debt need to get ready.This week, governor Stephen Poloz said again that low interest rates had done their job in inoculating the economy against an oil price slump, and he pointed to strong growth in the first part of 2017.It has been seven years since the central bank raised its benchmark rate — a move that would prompt commercial lenders to move their own lending rates in lockstep, driving up the costs of carrying mortgages and credit card debt.LUMBERING TALKS ON LUMBERThe United States has stuck Canadian lumber exporters with a second batch of duties to pay when they sell their product south of the border, bringing the average payment to about 27 per cent — slightly lower than anticipated, but stiff all the same.The second round of duties inspired a second round of speculation in Ottawa.On economics: Will the payments break the back of some Canadian exporters or do they have enough stamina to withstand the measures until a lasting settlement is negotiated? Will the big sawmills survive as the little ones vanish?On politics: Did the U.S. lowball the duty to show Canada it was ready to negotiate? Did they lowball the duty so they could take more from Canada in the bigger NAFTA negotiations starting later this summer? Is Canada serious about a negotiated settlement, given the years the talks have languished and the long-gone opportunities for truce?The speculation was lost on lumber workers who fear immediate implications for their job security. Unifor, which represents 24,000 workers in the sector, figures duties sustained at that level would eventually lead to 25,000 lost jobs in Canada.CHINA, BIT BY BITCanada and China have signed an agreement to refrain from knowingly hacking each other’s trade and business secrets — a pact that cynics say isn’t worth much but that optimists consider a building block towards a far more robust trading relationship.Canada is eyeing China’s huge population as a major business development opportunity that would give Canadian exporters an alternative to an inward-looking United States. But a full-fledged free trade agreement is years away. In the meantime, there’s hope that small steps on protection of intellectual property such as the one announced this week will coax reluctant Canadian companies to entertain closer ties with China.The two countries are also holding talks on an extradition treaty, which is controversial in Canada, raising questions about respect for human rights. read more

UN chief reaffirms call for moratorium on death penalty

“A global moratorium is a crucial stepping stone towards full worldwide abolition,” Mr. Ban said in a message delivered by the Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights, Kyung-wha Kang. “Capital punishment is inconsistent with the mission of the United Nations to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights and the dignity and worth of the human person,” Ms. Kang read, during an event at the Human Rights Council in Geneva organized by the International Commission against the Death Penalty, an independent body opposed to capital punishment.The UN General Assembly first voted on a moratorium in 2007, and again in December 2012 with the support of 111 countries, 41 against and 34 abstentions. The resolution called for a progressive restriction on the use of capital punishment and eliminating it entirely for felons below the age of 18 and pregnant women. Although not legally binding, the UN moratorium on executions carries moral and political weight. “The United Nations system has long advocated the abolition of the death penalty. International and hybrid tribunals supported by the UN do not provide for capital punishment, nor does the International Criminal Court,” Mr. Ban’s message noted. Approximately150 countries have either abolished the death penalty or do not practice it, but Mr. Ban noted that some recently reinstated the practice. Thousands of people are executed each year, “often in violation of international standards, such as the right to fair trial and due process,” Mr. Ban said. He added that the death penalty is still used for a wide range of crimes that do not meet the threshold of “most serious crimes” and based on information that is not transparent. In addition, sometimes “wrongful convictions and miscarriages of justice” can occur in well-functioning legal systems that sentence and execute persons who have been ultimately proven innocent, Mr. Ban said. read more

Baseball Ohio State drops a pair of games in road series against

Ohio State junior starting pitcher Connor Curlis delivers a pitch Friday night against Nebraska in Bill Davis Stadium. Credit: Mac Connor | Ohio State AthleticsThe Ohio State baseball team (20-10, 3-3 Big Ten) lost two out of the three games against Iowa (19-10, 5-3 Big Ten) on the road to fall to an even .500 record in Big Ten play.Game 1The two teams were locked in a pitcher’s duel in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader, with Ohio State Friday night starter Connor Curlis giving way to top reliever Seth Kinker after 6.2 innings of one-run pitching. Kinker finished off the Hawkeyes for his seventh save of the season, and the Buckeyes notched a 2-1 win.Iowa matched Ohio State’s best pitcher with its ace, sending redshirt junior Nick Allgeyer to the mound to start. Sophomore reliever and infielder Grant Judkins finished the Buckeyes off with three shutout innings.Ohio State’s only two runs were recorded in the fourth inning when senior left fielder Tyler Cowles drove home senior first baseman Noah McGowan on an RBI single. Junior designated hitter Jacob Barnwell followed with a single that scored freshman catcher Dillon Dingler to give the Buckeyes a 2-1 lead.Game 2A perfect storm of good offense by the Hawkeyes and poor defense by the Buckeyes thundered upon Iowa City, Iowa, in the bottom of the first inning in the second game of Saturday’s double header.Iowa recorded seven runs in the chaos, although only two of them were earned due to throwing errors by shortstop Kobie Foppe and third baseman Conner Pohl. It was all the momentum the Hawkeyes needed for a 9-5 win.Sophomore third baseman Lorenzo Elion recorded the first of his three RBIs in the outpouring.McGowan was the lone bright spot for Ohio State, finishing 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles and three RBIs. His final RBI came in the top of the ninth to bring the lead back down to four runs, but Pohl grounded out to end the last chance for a Buckeye rally.Junior starting pitcher Ryan Feltner started for Ohio State and pitched four innings with seven runs, two of them earned. His record moved to 3-2 on the year.Game 3  Ohio State and Iowa found themselves in another pitcher’s duel Sunday, with junior starter Cole McDonald and junior reliever Zach Daniels leading the Hawkeyes to a 2-1 victory.With the game tied at one in the bottom of the eighth inning, Iowa strung together a two-out rally with a walk, single and eventual game-winning RBI double by Judkins.Ohio State redshirt senior pitcher Adam Niemeyer started and pitched five innings, allowing one unearned run. Redshirt senior reliever Kyle Michalik was issued the loss (0-1) after giving up the eighth-inning run.Ohio State totalled four hits, with its lone RBI coming from McGowan. read more

Windows 8 leaks lead to firings at Microsoft

first_imgIf you’ve seen images of the Windows 8 desktop, then you’ve also seen Microsoft’s not-at-all-subtle warning about sharing the digital goodies you’ve been fortunate enough to get your hands on early. With the number of leaked builds which have made the rounds going all the way back to the early stages of Windows 7 development, it certainly seemed reasonable to assume that eventually Microsoft would track down someone who had been leaking milestone builds ow Windows 8 to private FTPs and torrent sites.Now it appears as though that has finally happened. According to reports forum sites where the early builds have been linked and heavily discussed, two Microsoft employees have been fired as a result of their supposed involvement with the leaks. Those familiar with the situation have stated that one was based in Russia, while the other worked out of Microsoft’s headquarters in Redmond, Washington.Since Microsoft doesn’t comment on employee terminations, we’ll have to trust the underground enthusiasts on this one for now – but there’s no reason to think that Microsoft wouldn’t eventually catch up to members of its own internal crew who might be passing off confidential pre-release builds.Will the leaks stop? Probably not, with OEM partners having access to Windows 8 as well – and Microsoft having far less power to track and control those outside its own organization. Instead, it may only cause a slight slowdown while people explore the darkened corners of cyberspace looking for someone else who’s willing to upload an ISO file.More at WinRumorslast_img read more

UPDATE Rose Garden renamed Moda Center at the Rose Quarter

first_imgThe Portland Trail Blazers announced an agreement Tuesday with a regional health and dental plan provider to change the name of the Rose Garden arena to the Moda Center at the Rose Quarter. Moda Health, an Oregon-based company that also provides plans in Washington and Alaska, finalized a 10-year arena naming rights deal with the Blazers on Monday. Comcast Sportsnet Northwest reported that the price was “up to $4 million annually,” but neither the team nor Moda Health would confirm that number.During a joint press conference held at the center’s south atrium, team president Chris McGowan and Moda Health president Dr. William Johnson hailed the agreement as a first step in developing the home of the Blazers into an entertainment epicenter of Portland.“We’re going to put a lot of time and energy into livening up the Rose Quarter,” McGowan said, “and making it the cultural hub that it should be for arts and entertainment in this region.”While the old name goes away, McGowan said that the future Moda Center logo will incorporate a rose “as a salute to the city of Portland” — as requested by team owner Paul Allen. Besides the name change and new look, Blazer fans should notice differences at the center by the time doors open for the Sept. 2 home opener against the San Antonio Spurs. McGowan described a “phase one” that will enhance the game-night experience.last_img read more
