Senior UN official tours south Lebanon to assess recovery and reconstruction efforts

“I have come to south Lebanon again to see with my own eyes how the Lebanese and the international community have joined forces in rebuilding homes and infrastructures,” UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon Geir Pedersen said during a walking tour in the town of Bint Jbeil.“I am here to listen to concerns so that we may find a way to enhance the effectiveness of our assistance,” he said.To this end, Mr. Pedersen, who began his day in Tyre where he was updated by UN personnel about the Organization’s activities in the region, met with several authorities in Bint Jbeil, including Ministers of Parliament Hassan Fadlallah and Ayoub Hemayyed as well as Mayor Ali Bazzi, to listen to their opinions and explain projects being undertaken by the UN.The Special Coordinator also was briefed by Force Commander General Claudio Graziano of the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) on the current situation in southern Lebanon, and he also spoke with UNIFIL representatives and peacekeepers.More than 12,000 UNIFIL troops have been deployed out of the 15,000 allowed under Security Council resolution 1701, which mandated the complete withdrawal of Israeli troops from southern Lebanon and also enhanced UNIFIL to monitor the ceasefire and extend humanitarian assistance to the civilian population. 2 March 2007A senior United Nations official toured south Lebanon today to see first-hand the progress of the world body’s recovery and reconstruction work, which began after the end of last summer’s war between Israel and Hizbollah. read more

Japan accepts talks with South Korea on WTO arbitration

TOKYO — Japan has announced it will accept South Korea’s request for joint talks leading to arbitration by the World Trade Organization after Seoul filed a complaint with the international body over Tokyo’s tightening of export controls.Trade minister Isshu Sugawara, however, said Friday that Japan’s controls on exports to South Korea follow WTO rules and that Tokyo stands by its position.South Korea initiated a complaint with the WTO last week after Japan tightened controls on key chemicals used in semiconductors and displays and downgraded South Korea’s preferential trade status.The two countries also held talks in Tokyo on Friday on a range of contentious issues including forced labour by Koreans during World War II and the cancellation of a military intelligence pact, but failed to make progress.The Associated Press read more

Ohio State mens soccer riding momentum into meeting with Bowling Green

Credit: Breanna Williams / Lantern PhotographerThe Ohio State men’s soccer team will look to improve upon its five-game unbeaten streak against its third in-state rival of the season on Wednesday as the Buckeyes are scheduled to face Bowling Green at 7 p.m. at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU has completed a major turnaround from the beginning of the season when the team went on a four-game losing streak. The Scarlet and Gray now sits at 4-4-2 overall and 1-1-1 in Big Ten play.The Buckeyes have found different ways to attack their opponents in order to win.“At the moment, we have a good rotation up top that’s allowing us to stay fresh and be able to attack pretty well,” OSU junior forward Danny Jensen said. “With the rotation, we are able to press a little more.”Not only do the Buckeyes have a good offensive rotation going, but their defense has been a weapon as well.OSU sophomore forward Marcus McCrary said Bowling Green is a solid defensive squad, which will be one of the challenges the Buckeyes will face.“We know they won’t be easy, and we know they will not be the toughest competition we play all year, but we just need to focus and be confident and just keep going,” McCrary said.The Falcons have lost three straight heading into Wednesday’s tilt.“We know they’re a solid team and we know that they are an organized team,” Jensen said. “More ways to get by that is to play our game and stay fresh.”Although OSU has had only one day of practice to prepare for the battle against Bowling Green, the Buckeyes are confident they can continue their unbeaten streak.“They’re just a good team and we’re going to take care of business on Wednesday,” McCrary said.Previous encounter with the FalconsRevenge might be the only thing on the Falcons’ minds after a shutout loss to the Buckeyes in the 2014 regular season.OSU earned a 3-0 victory over Bowling Green at home. OSU then-junior defender Liam Doyle scored the Buckeyes’ first goal of the game in just three minutes off a penalty kick. Then-sophomore Christian Soldat added to the lead after he scored off a rebound originally shot by then-junior midfielder Kyle Culbertson midway through the first half.OSU then-senior midfielder Yianni Sarris sent in a shot in the 64th minute that gave the Buckeyes their final goal of the game.By the end of the match, shots were a lopsided 20-6 in favor of the Buckeyes.Clean sweepThe Big Ten’s weekly awards for offensive and defensive player were swept by Buckeyes.Jensen took home the award for Offensive Player of the Week after netting a pair of game-clinching goals over Louisville and Michigan State last week. The last player from OSU to win the award was Jensen, in October 2014.The Defensive Player of the Week crown was captured by redshirt senior goalkeeper Chris Froschauer. The transfer from Dayton saved six shots in the two Buckeye victories last week, including his third clean sheet of the season in the win against Louisville. It is the first time in Froschauer’s career that he won a defensive award.Next upFollowing Wednesday’s action, the Buckeyes are scheduled to visit the Hoosier State to face Indiana at 7:30 p.m. in Bloomington, Indiana. read more

Protesters up the ante on calls for Bishops HMs sacking

…to protest Education Ministry next As the calls for the removal of the Bishops’ High School Head Mistress (HM), Winifred Ellis, intensifies, protesters have revealed their intentions of picketing the Ministry of Education to appeal to the subject Minister, Nicolette Henry.The Education Minister addressing the issue, had said “I know these things can get sensational at times but the world in which we live matters like that ought to be raised and ought to be dealt with very seriously and condignly and that is the ministry’s intention to deal with the matter in the appropriate way using existing and appropriate channels that exist and, so we will activate the process and take the necessary steps.”“We will be in front of the Ministry of Education tomorrow to appeal to the Minister Henry…Now this is not a protest against Bishops’ High School, this is a protest against Bishops’ Head Mistress who berated young ladies. I don’t know if you’ve heard the tape, her tone was one of condescension, one of absolute dictatorship and authority and shamed these young ladies,” one of the protesters identified as Don Singh, told media operatives.Protesters gathered in front of Bishops’ for the second time calling for the HM’s dismissalAccording to protesters on Wednesday, Ellis’ actions in an effort to defend alleged sexual predator, Coen Jackson who serves in the capacity of an economics teacher at the Bishop’s High School, has proven her to be “unfit” and as such, she should be made to resign.“We’re out here to protest the actions of Miss Ellis and calling for her immediate removal. We’d like to underscore here she is clearly unfit to head such a prestigious institution and more so such an institution where there is such a large amount of young ladies that need to be protected,” Learie Barclay said.He further expressed hope that the Education Ministry and other relevant authorities would look into the matter which can prove to be both psychologically and emotionally damaging for the young students.“These young ladies need counselling after such an onslaught on their reputations, and onslaught on their virtue, and onslaught on their self-esteem, and onslaught of their self-confidence at the expense of a gentleman,” he said.Many other  picketers reiterated calls for students of the high school to be receive counselling.The protesters have maintained that they intend to continue protesting the matter at hand until Ellis is removed from the school system.Over the course of the latter part of last week, allegations of Jackson’s grooming and sexual molestation of several teenagers took social media by storm.A formal complaint against the teacher of over 15 years, was made to the Ministry of Education over the weekend and was addressed to the Minister of Education, Nicolette Henry; the Minister of Public Security Khemraj Ramjattan; the Minister of Social Protection, Amna Ally; the Minister of Public Health, Volda Lawrence; the Minister of Legal Affairs Basil Williams; and the Minister of Social Cohesion, Dr George Norton.Since then, Chief Education Officer, Marcel Hutson has informed the media that an investigation has been launched.On Monday, the Head Teacher of the Bishop’s High School reportedly called a general assembly where she sought to berate female students for not coming to the defence of the alleged predator.In a leaked recording of a speech purported to be that of Ellis, the Head Mistress was heard describing the teenagers as “slack” and “loose” and even demanding that they “step out of the line” if they’ve ever been “approached, propositioned and interfered” with by Jackson.This resulted in the first picketing exercise for the Head teacher’s removal, which was conducted yesterday (Tuesday) in front of the Bishop’s High School.Jackson (second from left) flanked by his attorneysIn the presence of his Attorneys- Jerome Khan, Priyanka Sookraj and Siand Dhurjan-Bishops High School former Economics teacher, Coen Jackson, broke his silence on the allegations against him which claimed that he abused his position of trust as a teacher and groomed female, and some male, students for sexual activity.At a press conference on Tuesday, in the Office of Attorney Jerome Khan, Jackson denied the allegations made against him.He said that his complainant, “has created this caricature of me as a beast, as a predator. There are many students that could testify on my behalf. My professional conduct, my ability in the subjects that I teach, the performance record of me as a teacher is there. I have contributed to the COI on education…I have a track record of high performance,” he said.However, Jackson did admit to dating two former students of the Bishops High School.He explained that he is currently in a relationship with a 21-year old former student and has been involved with the young woman for a number of years.Jackson posited his belief that the matter was only brought to light by a notorious character in society only after he [complainant] became engaged in an intimate relationship with a former student of the Bishop’s High School, with whom Jackson had been involved with.“In the process I have been accused, prosecuted and convicted in the court of public opinion…I wish to deny the accusation being peddled by [ the complainant] and believe that he is using this as a basis for his self promotion, disregarding what damage is done to many, many persons profession, reputation and character,” he said.

ExIMF mission chief Ireland needs a new jolt of growth

first_imgTHE FORMER HEAD of the International Monetary Fund’s mission to Ireland has said that Ireland needs “a new jolt of growth”.Ashoka Mody, who has previously said that the austerity-only policy for Ireland was a mistake, has said that the current economic problems in this country are linked to a lack of consumer and State spending.“I’m afraid we are already five years into the crisis and with households continuing to try to catch up with their lost wealth, they are not spending,” he told RTÉ’s Prime Time.“If the Government and households are both not spending, it’s not a surprise that the economy is not growing.”Mody said that there is “no clear end in sight” to austerity with at least two more years of it planned and said that the State needs “a new jolt of growth”.“Ireland’s growth has been very disappointing over the last 12 months or so not withstanding ups and down of an episodic nature,” he said.He warned of a there is a danger that Ireland will “go into a long term hysteresis process” from which it will not emerge easily, referring to the lagging of an effect behind its cause. In economics ‘hysteresis’ is a term commonly applied to the area of unemployment.Mody’s comments come in the context of the Budget which is planned for October 15. The two coalition parties are focusing on how much of an adjustment will be required.While many of those in Fine Gael and Ireland’s Troika bailout partners are seeking €3.1 billion in cuts and tax rises, Labour is pushing for something closer to €2.5 million.Speaking on Morning Ireland, independent TD Stephen Donnelly argued that the €3.1 billion plan exceeds the Troika target by €1.3 or €1.4 billion and argued for a billion euro less in austerity in next month’s Budget.Read: ‘Moving away from austerity is the sensible action’ – former IMF mission chiefRead: Austerity-only policy for Ireland was a mistake, admits former IMF chieflast_img read more

Tasmania not the Greece of Australia

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Tasmania’s Premier, Lara Giddings, has told a national audience Tasmania is not the “Greece of Australia” and says her government is “quietly transforming” the state’s struggling economy. The Premier says much of the criticism of the state’s economic situation is politically motivated. “You’ve all heard the claims – Tasmania is backward, a mendicant state, the Greece of Australia, closed for business and, invariably, our political opponents blame minority government,” she said. “Today I want to tell you about what’s really going on – and about the changes that are happening in the island state.” Ms Giddings says Tasmania is ready to capitalise on the ‘Asian Century’, thanks to the roll-out of the national broadband network, a new $400 million irrigation scheme and renewable energy expertise. She reflected that just four years ago, the state had the country’s lowest unemployment rate and was named Australia’s best performing state. “Our small size is both a blessing and a curse, making us more vulnerable in the bad times but also quicker to bounce back when the good times return,” she said. “The factors holding back the Tasmanian economy are transient and will pass.” The Premier has taken to task federal politicians for using the island state as a “whipping boy”. Ms Giddings says Tasmania is seen by federal politicians as a soft target for strategies to win votes of environmentally-conscious voters in the inner city suburbs of Melbourne and Sydney. “While we are accused of ‘locking up’ potential sources of economic activity, it should be remembered that most of the major conservation decisions in recent history have been made in the context of Federal election campaigns,” she said. The Premier says Tasmania is a tolerant and progressive community. Source: ABC.last_img read more

Sex Pistols Never Mind The Bollocks Heres The Sex Pistols For The

first_imgCredited with kicking off the punk phenomenon in the U.K., this GRAMMY Hall Of Fame album ignited controversy and censorshipPhilip MerrillGRAMMYs Aug 23, 2018 – 5:09 pm In the year 1977, the Sex Pistols’ album Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols arrived world-wide, surrounded by violence, controversy and censorship in the United Kingdom. The lineup of drummer Paul Cook, guitarist Steve Jones, frontman Johnny Rotten, and replacement bass player Sid Vicious ushered in the era of British Punk with an amateurish and confrontational sound and attitude. In the end, the LP influenced nearly everything done subsequently in rock and is hailed as one of the genre’s greatest albums of all time. “God Save The Queen” was the first single that preceded release of the album. The title provides the first four words of the song, followed by the lyric “the fascist regime.” For many offended Brits, the song was all downhill from there.  As the band continued work on their album that year — recording “Holidays In The Sun” on June 18 — they adjourned that night to a pub and got beat up badly enough to make the newspapers. Like the lyrics to that lead single, the action became even more intense thereafter.The album’s producer, Chris Thomas, has since shaped many rockers’ sounds, winning one of his GRAMMYs at the 48th GRAMMY Awards when U2’s How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb took Album Of The Year. His detailed overdubs on Never Mind The Bollocks…, punching in and out patiently with Cook and Jones, produced a furious and exuberant finished work superficially at odds with the craft invested in its creation. Meanwhile the band’s other hit singles produced punk’s signature controversy. As a result the only label that would have them was Virgin Records. Richard Branson hand-picked the tracklist.Looking back, it seems only fitting that the Sex Pistols’ gusto got them in trouble. “Banned In Britain” is one of rock history’s quaint phrases in the U.S., but every major retailer in England was prevented from selling the album. Since it debuted at No. 1 in the U.K., this was a boon for independent outlets. A Virgin Records outlet was raided and its manager arrested for displaying the album’s text-only graphic-art cover in his window. While “Never mind the bollocks” is a phrase that makes the word mean “nonsense,” the potentially obscene implications of the word brought the band before the British bar, while news headlines made the most of the sensational controversy.At Nottingham Magistrates’ Court, the use of the word “bollocks” was considered objectionable but not illegally “obscene.” For example, major newspapers had included the LP’s title in their coverage but the papers were not put on trial. The hearing’s chairman described the now-classic album as “vulgar exploitation of the worst instincts of human nature for the purchases of commercial profits.” He said the not guilty verdict was delivered “reluctantly.” Rock was f***ing transformed.In a 2016 Pitchfork interview, John Lydon (a.k.a. Johnny Rotten) made headlines again for “forgiving” Nirvana for reflecting the Sex Pistols’ sound. But the Sex Pistols’ musically riveting flare and defiance had the heavy influence of greatness on what hundreds if not thousands of other musicians chose to do with their art.In 2015 Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols was inducted into the Recording Academy’s GRAMMY Hall Of Fame. It was both the Sex Pistols’ debut as well as the only studio album they recorded, ever.Catching Up On Music News Powered By The Recording Academy Just Got Easier.

Naturallyoccurring protein enables slowermelting ice cream

first_img The answer lies in a naturally occurring protein explored by researchers at the universities of Dundee and Edinburgh.The protein’s plus points are not only slow melting but also smoother texture in ice cream, with no gritty ice crystals forming. Another plus will interest weight-watchers: the development could allow for products to be made with lower levels of saturated fat and fewer calories. For example, the protein could be used in chocolate mousse and mayonnaise to help reduce the calories.The protein in focus is BsIA. In making ice cream, it works by binding together the air, fat and water. Because of BsIA, the team replaced some of the fat molecules which are used to stabilize oil and water mixtures, cutting the fat content.The protein was developed with support from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council, said a press item from the University of Dundee.Yes, the ice cream will melt eventually but University of Edinburgh’s Prof. Cait MacPhee said in a BBC News report on Monday that hopefully by keeping it stable for longer, “it will stop the drips.” She is from the University of Edinburgh’s school of physics and astronomy, and she led the project. She told BBC Radio 5 live: “This is a natural protein already in the food chain. It’s already used to ferment some foods so it’s a natural product rather than being a ‘Frankenstein’ food.”The team estimated such a slow-melting ice cream could be available in three to five years.Radio New Zealand News said the protein occurs in friendly bacteria and it works by adhering to fat droplets and air bubbles, making them more stable in a mixture.Matthew Humphries in Geek.com spelled out what this could mean if their research were to reach manufacturing stage. “For manufacturers it’s a fantastic find. It can be added to ice cream without altering the taste or mouth feel, it also means the finished ice cream can be stored at slightly higher (yet still very cold) temperatures, which will save on energy costs. The protein can also reduce the level of saturated fat required. As long as the taste isn’t affected by that, it means the ice cream you love will contain less calories.”The ice cream news is yet another example of why researchers are keenly interested in the behavior of proteins—as MacPhee said in discussing her research interests—”the molecules that are responsible for the vast majority of functions in living organisms.” She noted that self-assembly of proteins underpins the texture of foodstuffs including egg, meat and milk products. “It is understanding this process of self-assembly – to prevent or reverse disease, or to drive the development of new materials and foodstuffs – that forms the focus of my research efforts,” she stated.
