Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize today for his work to end the 52-year civil war between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, a Marxist guerilla group also known as FARC. The war, which has left 220,000 dead and displaced nearly 6 million people, is the longest-running remaining major armed conflict in the Americas.Santos, 65, earned a mid-career/master’s in public administration in 1981 from Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) and was a 1988 Nieman Fellow for his award-winning work as a columnist and reporter for the Colombian newspaper El Tiempo.Santos, who pledged to end the war when first elected president in 2010, “has brought the bloody conflict significantly closer to a peaceful solution, and much of the groundwork has been laid for both the verifiable disarmament of the FARC guerrillas and a historic process of national fraternity and reconciliation,” the Norwegian Nobel Committee said in a statement Friday.In late September, the two sides reached a landmark peace accord that was narrowly rejected by voters in a nationwide referendum last week.Despite that setback, the committee said it hoped the award would encourage Colombians to respect the current ceasefire and cause peace talks to continue. “The fact that a majority of the voters said no to the peace accord does not necessarily mean that the peace process is dead. The referendum was not a vote for or against peace. What the ‘no’ side rejected was not the desire for peace, but a specific peace agreement.”Although Santos was selected for his individual efforts, the committee said “the award should also be seen as a tribute to the Colombian people who, despite great hardships and abuses, have not given up hope of a just peace, and to all the parties who have contributed to the peace process. This tribute is paid, not least, to the representatives of the countless victims of the civil war.”“I was very proud to hear this morning of President Juan Manuel Santos’s receiving the Nobel Peace Prize,” said HKS Dean Douglas Elmendorf. “This incredible recognition speaks to the tremendous leadership and vision he has shown in negotiating a peaceful solution to his country’s long and difficult civil war. His courage should be an inspiration to the Colombian people and to the rest of the world.”Santos returned to speak at the Kennedy School in 2010 and 2013. During his 2013 address, he described the great strides Colombia had made in the recent years in education, infrastructure, in erasing the country’s deficit, and in narrowing the nation’s wide income gap between rich and poor.“We broke a trend,” he said. describing the inequality gap that has persisted in Colombia for centuries. Income for the poor, he said, was rising six times faster than it has for those in Colombia’s upper strata.Before entering politics, Santos was a celebrated journalist. Two of his Nieman colleagues lauded his choice as Nobel winner and recalled some of their times with him.Rosental Alves, now the director of Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas at the University of Texas at Austin, said, “He was a journalist, but somehow he was different from us. Sometimes we joked this guy one day will become president of Colombia. It was kind of the class joke. A couple of decades later, sure enough he was and is the president of Colombia. I told him this when we met … in the presidential office there, and of course he laughed.”Another former colleague, Eugene Robinson, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist at the Washington Post, said that “Juan Manuel became a great friend during our year at Harvard, and our friendship continued uninterrupted right after the Nieman year when he went back to El Tiempo, and I went to Buenos Aires as the Post’s South America correspondent. This was the era of the Colombian drug lords, so I had to go to Bogota a lot. Juan Manuel had some executive position at the paper. On one of my first trips to Colombia, he arranged a lunch in the countryside for me and invited all the young movers and shakers in Colombian politics, along with the U.S. ambassador. It was one-stop shopping. In one trip I knew all the important up-and-comers from all sides of the political spectrum.”Colombian President Santos on Rebel Negotiations and the War on Drugs | PolicyCastColombian President Juan Manuel Santos, a Kennedy School alumnus, speaks about the importance of negotiating with rebel groups that have been fighting the Colombian government for more than 50 years; what progress has been made in those negotiations; whether FARC could become a legitimate political party; if the international community has forgotten about the war on drugs; and if that war is winnable. You can hear more from Santos in his address at the JFK Jr. Forum, sponsored by the Institute of Politics.
Thousands of years ago, human beings reacted to solar eclipses with dismay, flooding the streets with pots and pans to scare away whatever had blotted out the sun with a cacophony of banging and shouting.When a total solar eclipse crosses the United States on Aug. 21 people will once again take to the streets with a great deal of anxiety, but most will be concerned primarily with getting a good view.With solar safety glasses available at every counter and an expected 2–7 million Americans traveling to the path of totality — the nearly 3,000-mile-long arc from the coast near Salem, Ore., to Charleston, S.C., in which a view of the total eclipse is possible — it is clear that eclipse fever has swept the country. Seeing an opportunity to educate and inspire a new wave of astronomers, the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) has released a smartphone app, Eclipse 2017, available on iOS and Android.“We haven’t had an eclipse cross the United States like this in nearly 100 years,” says CfA spokesperson Tyler Jump. “Because it’s such a rare and exciting event, we wanted to create an interactive guide that everyone could enjoy. Even if you’re not in the path of totality, our app allows you to calculate exactly how much of an eclipse you’ll be able to see and get a preview with our eclipse simulation. It’s also a great opportunity to highlight some of Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory’s (SAO) solar research. SAO was founded in large part to study the sun, and we’ve been doing so now for more than a century.”The free app comes with a host of resources for the amateur astronomer. A comprehensive viewing guide offers a crash course in the science behind eclipses and instructions on how to safely observe the celestial phenomenon. Videos from the Solar Dynamics Observatory show the sun in different wavelengths, revealing the many layers of solar activity. Users can also access an interactive eclipse map, which gives lunar transit times and simulated views for any location in the United States.The sun’s corona is visible to the naked eye during a total solar eclipse. Credit: Luc Viatour / www.Lucnix.beIn Cambridge, a partial eclipse covering most of the sun will be visible in the afternoon from about 1:30 to 4. But along the path of totality, for up to 2 minutes, viewers will enjoy one of astronomy’s most extraordinary sights: the sun’s ethereal corona. Normally invisible due to the amount of light emanating from the sun’s surface, the “crown” of magnetized plasma reaches temperatures over a million degrees Kelvin — nearly 2 million Fahrenheit — and is best known as the site of the sun’s awesome and violent flares.Monday’s will be the first total eclipse to be visible from the United States since 1991, and the first to be visible from every state since 1918. Though this is the first total eclipse to cross the United States in nearly 40 years, there is a total eclipse visible from Earth about every 18 months.For those who will not have a chance to view the eclipse with their own eyes, the app will provide a live stream of the eclipse as it travels across the country. But if it has to be the real thing, in April 2024 the United States is due for a total eclipse that will travel from Texas to Maine. A lucky stretch of land along the Illinois, Missouri, and Kentucky borders will see two total eclipses in just seven years.The Smithsonian Eclipse app was made possible by a grant through the Smithsonian Women’s Committee, with content from the SAO, and is powered by SkySafari 5.John Michael Baglione is a writer and author residing in Boston.

“We thank the Juraj Dalmatinac Society for recognizing us as a partner who is ready and able to create such an application that we believe will be useful to both citizens and other interested parties. The goal was to design a system that would solve real problems while improving existing processes. We also wanted to create a solid foundation for future expansions given the great potential for example in tourism. Span is happy to participate in such and similar projects because they are good examples of digital transformation in cities, ”Said Nikola Dujmović, President of the Management Board of Span. The aim of the project is to join each building of the old town of Šibenik with an appropriate information card with basic information and conservation guidelines in order to revive the historic city center and preserve cultural heritage. The Society for the Preservation of Šibenik Heritage “Juraj Dalmatinac”, the IT company Microsoft Croatia and Spain signed yesterday in Zagreb, an agreement on cooperation in the project of the information system of the cultural and historical ensemble of Šibenik “Geonculeus Si”. The technologies, knowledge and readiness we possess make us one of the leaders in digital transformation in Croatia, said Tatjana Skoko, Director of Microsoft Croatia, and added: “Šibenik is the first city in Croatia, and probably in the region, where such a project has been implemented. I believe that its value will be recognized by other cities and they will embark on similar projects of their own. We are especially glad that we have registered the Juraj Dalmatinac Company in this project through the Microsoft Philantropies program, which means that the company is in the process of approving the donation of the Azure solution by Microsoft. In this way, as a company, we want to encourage the Juraj Dalmatinac Company – but also all other non-profit organizations operating in Croatia – to use the best technology, while reducing the operating costs of projects, through which savings can realize additional activities within their projects, ”Concludes Skoko. Photo: Association of Citizens Society for the Preservation of Šibenik Heritage Juraj Dalmatinac RELATED NEWS: ŠIBENIK FIRST IN CROATIA GETS A BUILDING RECORDING SYSTEM Juraj Dalmatinac, the Sibenik Citizens’ Association for the Preservation of Sibenik Heritage, has been working intensively on the project for the last two years, and the first and most difficult step was carefully recording all buildings in the city center, and now the whole story continues – digitization. The information system of the cultural and historical ensemble of Šibenik is based on the Microsoft Azure cloud solution, which is in the process of approving a donation through the Microsoft Philantropies program, and the development, adaptation and implementation is carried out by Span. When the work on programming and creating the portal is completely completed, the Geonucleus.Si project will achieve numerous benefits. The need for the Geonucleus.Si project arose from long-standing city problems: too slow and inadequate renovations, and the consequent reduction of monumental properties of buildings, points out Nikola Grubić, president of the Society for the Preservation of Šibenik Heritage Juraj Dalmatinac, and adds: “Šibenik’s historic center is one of the most valuable and best preserved on the Adriatic. With the Geonucleus.Si project, we want to enable the historic core to live and for people to stay in it, and with the help of this project it will be easier to renovate their buildings under conservation conditions. I emphasize that the initiative for the information system comes from the local community, from our association that operates at the local level and wants to contribute to the protection of its cultural heritage. This is our contribution to the revitalization of the city center, which will enable citizens to get basic conservation information and guidelines before going to the conservation office, a kind of ‘identity card’ of the old core buildings. We coordinate all guidelines with the competent conservation department. ” About 330 facilities have been processed within the project so far. Ultimately, the system will be publicly available in the form of an internet portal, through which information will be offered transparently, quickly and accurately that will facilitate the maintenance of facilities or investment in the old city center. Having in mind the problems and defined goals of the project, the Society for the Preservation of Šibenik Heritage Juraj Dalmatinac decided to implement a solution based on Microsoft’s cloud computing system Azure, which will be adapted to the needs of the project and fully implemented by Span. Microsoft Azure was chosen as the ideal platform for project execution because of its productivity, adaptability, intelligent applications, and the trust placed in it by the business community. Each of the more than 2.000 buildings located in the protected city center of Šibenik will soon have its own public access. ‘ID card’with all important data, photographs, and guidelines for restoration. It is a unique project, not only in Croatia, but also in the world.
“Now everyone is using e-wallets because physical money is deemed dangerous as a [vector of] virus transmission,” she said. Digital banking senior vice president Sunarto Xie of Bank Mandiri said the bank had recorded 2 million top-up transactions totaling around Rp 600 billion in May. He added that Mandiri’s collaboration with LinkAja was helping it reach a new customer segment. “We used to say, ‘This is the unbankable segment’. Why? Because the cost of serving them was greater than the revenue we [made]. Digital [payment] platforms have now transformed that by making the cost to serve very low,” Sunarto said.“Transactions through MyPertamina and LinkAja consistently rose along with the completion of digital infrastructure at all gas stations,” Pertamina retail marketing director Mas’ud Khamid said during the same event. He added that Pertamina was pursuing a digitization program for over 7,000 petrol stations and 160,000 liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) outlets to offer the LinkAja payment facility, planned for completion by the end of this month PT Kereta Commuter Indonesia (KCI), meanwhile, had introduced its own noncash payment facility in 2013 and added LinkAja just last year.“By ecosystem, up to 70 percent of our service users use the e-money [payment facility]. [Some] of these users use the LinkAja service,” noted KCI commercial vice president Karina Amanda . She added that in normal times, the Commuter Line transported over 1 million passengers per day. The train service was currently averaging 400,000 passengers per day. The switch to digital payment systems among the Indonesian public was projected to become a long-lasting trend, said LinkAja’s Edward. Entering June, he had seen “quite a significant increase” in e-commerce transactions and utility payments on the platform.CEO Andi Kristianto of Telkomsel Mitra Inovasi, Telkomsel’s venture arm, said that it had been strengthening its technology infrastructure to better cater to fintech payment services like LinkAja.University of Indonesia economics professor Mohamad Ikhsan, who is also an expert staffer at the SOEs Ministry, pointed out that digitalization would not only help during a crisis, but it would also drive productivity and economic growth. He noted, however, that the implementation of a digitalization policy would depend on whether access and infrastructure, as well as the bureaucracy, were in ready to support a cashless system.“It is possible that digitalization will create greater inequality,” Ikhsan also cautioned, as people with a higher level of education would be quicker to adapt to a digital ecosystem.Topics : LinkAja is a product of PT Fintek Karya Nusantara (Finarya), a subsidiary of state-owned telecommunications giant PT Telekomunikasi Selular (Telkomsel) that was founded on Jan. 21, 2019. LinkAja is now co-owned by seven other SOEs: Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI), Bank Negara Indonesia (BNI), Bank Mandiri, Bank Tabungan Negara (BTN), Pertamina, PT Asuransi Jiwasraya and PT Danareksa. According to the 2020 financial report of parent company PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia, Finarya was not yet profitable and booked a net loss of Rp 821 billion at the end of last year.The platform’s ties to SOEs have proven a vantage point as the firms help propel LinkAja to the forefront of e-payment players in Indonesia’s fintech sector, particularly as the COVID-19 health crisis has pushed customers, businesses and markets across the country to switch to cashless transactions. BRI consumer director Handayani said at Wednesday’s press conference that top-up transactions among LinkAja users had grown twofold since the outbreak emerged in Indonesia. In terms of transaction volume, the platform had recorded 700 percent growth. A year and a half since it started doing business, state-backed digital payment platform LinkAja has reported strong growth propelled by robust collaboration with state-owned enterprises (SOEs).LinkAja chief marketing officer Edward Kilian Suwignyo said the platform had assisted 466 traditional markets in 22 Indonesian cities transition to a digital system, as well as connected over 234,000 merchants to its noncash payment platform. “Cooperation between sectors is very important to reach all [levels] of society in Indonesia,” Edward said at a virtual press conference on Wednesday. To stimulate the accelerated adoption of digital technology, LinkAja was not charging small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to join the platform, he added.
Governors Wolf, Corbett, Legislators, Stakeholders Host Roundtable to Discuss Economic Impact of New Shell Plant July 22, 2016 Economy, Jobs That Pay, Press Release Pittsburgh, PA — Governor Tom Wolf today met with former Governor Tom Corbett, legislators, local government officials, businesses, and other stakeholders in Pittsburgh to discuss downstream economic opportunities and workforce needs following the recent announcement by Royal Dutch Shell that the company plans to build a new ethane cracker plant in Beaver County.“It’s important to recognize what this project will do for the revitalization of Pennsylvania’s manufacturing industry,” Governor Wolf said. “This facility will serve as the center piece in the region for the creation of new markets for polyethylene with added potential of attracting additional manufacturing investments that will lead to even more business attraction and job creation for generations to come.”“I’m proud to be part of the team that was able to bring the ethane cracker plant to Pennsylvania,” said former Governor Tom Corbett. “This project will bring economic growth to Western Pennsylvania, and also proves that the commonwealth is an ideal location to grow a business and create jobs.”The discussion, which was held at JLL Center in downtown Pittsburgh, focused on the project’s demand for at least 6,000 full-time construction jobs and 600 full-time permanent jobs, as well as the estimated $6 billion economic impact on the region.“This project will have a truly positive impact on our region, and it further reinforces western Pennsylvania as a key player in the energy industry,” said JC Pelusi, Market Leader, JLL. “Our firm is proud to have been part of this collaborative effort from the beginning as we helped Shell throughout the site selection process, and today’s discussion with key stakeholders really underscores the importance of this private-public partnership.”Shell’s Cracker Plant will be one of the largest of its kind in North America, and the largest single ‘from-the-ground-up’ industrial investment in the Pittsburgh region in a generation. The company is expected to break ground in late 2017, with commercial production expected to begin early next decade.“Contrary to reports, manufacturing still has a strong presence in our region. The announcement by Shell ensures that we will continue to see the growth of factory and manufacturing jobs for years to come,” said Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald. “We know that there will be a significant down-stream impact due to the building of the petrochemical plant. I commend the Governor, not only for his leadership in securing this announcement, but also for his foresight in talking about workforce and other future needs.”The complex will use low-cost ethane from shale gas producers in the Marcellus and Utica basins to produce 1.6 million tons of polyethylene per year. Polyethylene is used in many products, from food packaging and containers to automotive components.“The establishment of the cracker plant is an excellent step forward for Beaver County and Southwestern Pennsylvania,” said Senator Jay Costa. This project will serve as a regional economic engine and be a catalyst for further development not only in shale but in associated industries. The new facility has the potential to create jobs and economic energy for generations to come.“When combined with our ample shale gas reserves, the plant positions Pennsylvania to be a leader in energy development among all states. I’m grateful for the commitment from the business to work together to grow jobs, develop our regional infrastructure and invest in our communities.”“This exciting development of a new industry is being helped by state tax credits and we all have an interest in the jobs and economic benefits it will provide,” said Rep. Frank Dermody. “I’m grateful to Governor Wolf for getting personally involved in making sure that the project will be done in the right way to benefit all of western Pennsylvania.”For more information on the Shell Cracker Plant’s impact on Pennsylvania’s economy, go to http://www.newpa.com/key-industries/naturalgas/.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf SHARE Email Facebook Twitter

The Park is still open, and looks as beautiful and green as ever, with the waterfall a spectacular sight.”.Mr Evans and his family began a major operation to restore Paronella Park over a decade ago, with the Queensland Government giving $45,000 toward the cost of restoring North Queensland’s first hydro-electric generator, with donations from the public coming in over $20,000 and the estate borrowing $300,000 from the bank.
