UNbacked meeting calls for more strategic approach to mountain development

5 October 2007A United Nations-backed meeting on mountains has forged a consensus among over 60 representatives from governments, civil society and international organizations on the need for a more coherent approach to sustainable agriculture and rural development in the world’s highland areas. A United Nations-backed meeting on mountains has forged a consensus among over 60 representatives from governments, civil society and international organizations on the need for a more coherent approach to sustainable agriculture and rural development in the world’s highland areas.This call came in a statement issued at the close of the third meeting of the Adelboden Group for Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development in Mountain Regions held 1-3 October at the Rome headquarters of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).Physically isolated and socially and politically marginalized, mountain populations are among the most vulnerable in the world, FAO said in a news release, noting that 840 million chronically undernourished people live in highland areas and about 270 million mountain people lack food security, with 135 million suffering chronic hunger. “Higher priority should be given to mountain issues in national, regional and global policymaking either through incorporating mountain specific requirements into general policies or through specific mountain policies,” the Group said in a statement read at the end of its meeting.Governments with mountain regions were urged to better integrate mountain areas into national economies and foster economic diversification in highland regions by helping farmers, craftsmen and foresters add value to their products. The group also stressed the need to provide policy support to indigenous mountain communities, whose traditional local knowledge and know-how often help conserve the mountain environment and biodiversity and represent a sustainable approach to highland agriculture.Established in June 2002 in Adelboden, Switzerland, the group serves as a forum for discussion of policies, exchanges of experience, and coordinated planning. It also acts as an advisory board for FAO’s project on Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development in Mountain Regions. read more

US preparing unilateral sanctions on Russia if Europe resists tougher actions

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email US preparing unilateral sanctions on Russia if Europe resists tougher actions WASHINGTON – The United States is considering imposing unilateral sanctions on Russia over its threatening moves in Ukraine, a shift in strategy that reflects the Obama administration’s frustration with Europe’s reluctance to take tougher action against Moscow, according to U.S. and European officials.Until now, the U.S. has insisted on hitting Russia with penalties in concert with Europe in order to maximize the impact and present a united Western front. The European Union has a far stronger economic relationship with Russia, making the 28-nation bloc’s participation key to ensuring sanctions packages have enough teeth to deter Russia.But those same economic ties have made Europe fearful that tougher penalties against Russia could boomerang and hurt their own economies. After weeks of inaction, the officials say the U.S. is now prepared to move forward alone if EU officials fail to enact strong sanctions during a meeting Wednesday in Brussels.The U.S. official cautioned that no final decisions would be made until after the European meeting. The officials insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly by name.The White House’s willingness to punish Russia without European backing comes as the Obama administration faces criticism that its repeated warnings about tougher sanctions are little more than empty threats.“Sometimes I’m embarrassed for you, as you constantly talk about sanctions and yet, candidly, we never see them put in place,” Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said during a Senate hearing on Ukraine with administration officials last week.The U.S. and Europe have levied co-ordinated sanctions on Russian individuals and companies connected to Moscow’s alleged destabilization in Ukraine. Obama administration officials argue that those penalties have had an impact on Russia’s economy, citing International Monetary Fund statistics showing a downgrade in Russia’s growth this year.However, officials have acknowledged that the sanctions have not have an impact on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision-making in Ukraine.State Department spokesman Jen Psaki said Tuesday that if Putin “cares deeply about his people, about the economy, his own country” the sanctions would shift his calculus.Obama and European counterparts have vowed to take even broader sanctions targeting Russia’s lucrative energy and defence sectors, as well as access to financial markets, if Moscow failed to quell tensions with Ukraine. But it is unclear what the new package of U.S. sanctions would include.During a Group of Seven meeting in Brussels in early June, Western leaders warned Russian President Vladimir Putin those penalties could be levied within a month if Russia did not meet specific conditions, including recognizing the results of Ukraine’s May 25 election and start a dialogue with President Petro Poroshenko, ending support for the pro-Russian insurgency in eastern Ukraine and stopping the flow of arms across the Russian border.The end-of-June deadline the West outlined for Putin came and went with little follow-through from Russia, yet no penalties were levied by the U.S. and Europe.Heather Conley, director of the Europe program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said the West’s failure to follow through on its threat of sector sanctions has raised a “credibility question” for the Obama administration.“I think the bluff has now been fully called,” Conley said.If Obama moves forward with unilateral sanctions, he’ll face opposition from the private sector. U.S. businesses have been pressing the administration to hold off on sanctions that could put them at a disadvantage in the global economy.“It’s not clear to us that breaking commercial ties with the Russia partners, consumers gets anyone to where they want to be,” said Gary Litman, vice-president for international strategic initiatives at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.___Associated Press writers Matthew Lee in Washington and John-Thor Dahlburg in Brussels contributed to this report. by Julie Pace, The Associated Press Posted Jul 15, 2014 1:53 pm MDT read more

Mexico media giant Televisa pulls the plug on Miss Universe broadcasts over

Mexico media giant Televisa pulls the plug on Miss Universe broadcasts over Trump’s remarks AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email MEXICO CITY – Mexican media giant Televisa says it will no longer broadcast the Miss Universe Pageant or engage any other communication project with Donald Trump.Televisa says its decision comes in the wake of “disrespectful” remarks by Trump that the company says offended the entire Mexican population.During his presidential kickoff speech, Trump said Mexican immigrants are “bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people.” He advocated building a wall along the United States’ southern border.Televisa said in a statement Monday night that it “strongly rejects all forms of discrimination, racism and xenophobia.”Trump did not respond immediately to the decision by Televisa, one of the largest commercial television groups in the Western Hemisphere. NBC also ended its relationship with Trump on Monday. by The Associated Press Posted Jun 29, 2015 7:50 pm MDT read more

UN human rights expert welcomes shift in President Obamas counterterrorism policy

Mr. Obama said yesterday that, as part of a realignment of US counter-terrorism policy, he would curtail the use of drones, recommit to closing the prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, and seek new limits on his own war power. The new policy guidance imposes tougher standards for when drone strikes can be authorized, limiting them to targets that pose “a continuing, imminent threat to Americans” and cannot feasibly be captured, according to media reports. “This extremely important speech breaks new ground in a number of key respects,” the UN Special Rapporteur on human rights and counter-terrorism, Ben Emmerson, said in a news release. “It affirms for the first time this Administration’s commitment to seek an end to its armed conflict with Al-Qaida as soon as possible; it reminds the world that not every terrorist threat or terrorist attack can be equated with a situation of continuing armed conflict; and it sets out more clearly and more authoritatively than ever before the Administration’s legal justifications for targeted killing, and the constraints that it operates under,” he said. The speech also clarifies, and proposes improvements to, the procedures for independent oversight; and it sets out the steps the President is now resolved to take in order to close Guantánamo Bay, he added.Mr. Emmerson said that the publication of the procedural guidelines for the use of force in counter-terrorism operations is “a significant step towards increased transparency and accountability. It also disposes of a number of myths, including the suggestion that the US is entitled to regard all military-aged males as combatants, and therefore as legitimate targets.” He added that he will be engaging with senior US officials in Washington D.C. over the coming days and weeks in an effort “to put some flesh on the bones of the announcements made.” The expert said that Mr. Obama’s acknowledgement that the time has come to tackle not only the manifestations of terrorism but also its social, economic and political causes around the world “signals a shift in rhetoric and a move in policy emphasis towards promoting a strategy of sustainable and ethical counter-terrorism.” Independent experts, or special rapporteurs, are appointed by the UN Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a country situation or a specific human rights theme. They work in an unpaid capacity. read more

Tayler Hill Chemistry is there for Ohio State womens basketball

Coming into a season with big shoes to fill, the Ohio State women’s basketball team is opening its 2012-13 campaign in a big way. The Buckeyes open their season on Friday at the Carrier Classic against Notre Dame, and OSU is ready to start the year with three returning starters, including senior guard Tayler Hill, a preseason watch list candidate for the Wade Trophy. “I think it’s a big accomplishment personally as a player and it’s a good thing to be named,” Hill said. The senior guard is one of 25 NCAA Division I women basketball players named to the list for the 2013 State Farm Wade Trophy, which is awarded to the nation’s top player each year. The Minneapolis, Minn., native is no stranger to earning awards, either. Hill was a first team All-Big Ten selection last season and a member of the Big Ten’s All-Defensive team for the second succeeding year. Buckeye coach Jim Foster said it was not a surprise for Hill to be included on the list because of her performance last season. “She is a four-year starter, she had a great junior year,” Foster said. “She is a great player from both an offensive and defensive point of view and she is a very respected player.” Hill led the Buckeyes and the Big Ten last season in points scored, averaging 20.4 points per game. She averaged 12.4 points per game as a sophomore. The senior guard does not see herself making a big jump in points this season from her junior year. “I probably won’t jump as high as I did from sophomore year to junior year but around that range or a little higher,” Hill said. “From sophomore to junior year it was all about experience.” Alongside Hill, redshirt senior guard Amber Stokes and junior center Ashley Adams return as starters. OSU will have to do without sophomore forward Kalpana Beach who suffered a season-ending knee injury. Beach served as a starter for the Buckeyes last season. “Kalpana Beach just had surgery and will not play this year, but we got some depth and experience in her position,” Foster said. “We will see who steps up to the challenge.” Foster said junior center Darryce Moore, junior forward Martina Ellerbe and senior forward Emilee Harmon will need to step up to fill Beach’s shoes this season. Despite the loss of Beach, Hill said the team chemistry shouldn’t be affected. “I think it’s a good thing because we have played with each other over the years and have more experience in the front and backcourt and we know where each other are on the floor,” Hill said. “The chemistry is there between us.” Foster said the talent of former point guard and 2012 Big Ten Player of the Year Samantha Prahalis, who graduated and now plays for the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury, cannot be replaced. “Defensively, we are going to have to be a really good basketball team and we show signs of being that,” Foster said. “Offensively, no one player can take the place of Sammy Prahalis and we have to do that with a real team effort, and with every indication I have seen, this team is very willing to do that.” The Buckeyes are scheduled to open the season aboard the USS Yorktown in Charleston, S.C., on Friday against Notre Dame at 4 p.m. read more

Clinton fends off questions on Benghazi

first_imgWASHINGTON — Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton fended off questions Sunday on the deaths of American diplomats in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012, suggesting that no additional explanation she offered would satisfy critics.“There’s a difference between unanswered questions and unlistened-to answers,” Clinton said on “CBS Sunday Morning.”“There were a lot of confusing pieces of information flooding into us from the very first moment we heard about it,” Clinton said, referring to the attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi. “We did our best to sort it out.”“I did my best to fully cooperate with the Congress. I respect the Congress’ oversight responsibility,” she said, suggesting Republican critics have seized on discrepancies that arose from “the fog of war” and have improperly tried to use them as evidence of a coverup.Clinton’s Sunday TV appearance came after a week of promotional interviews for her memoir, “Hard Choices,” in which she occasionally seemed to stumble over easy questions or appeared tone deaf to the plight of ordinary Americans. Republican party chairman Reince Priebus pointed to those moments in an interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”Clinton “went out of the gate with one gaffe after the next,” he said. “The Democrats have nobody behind Hillary Clinton. If she keeps free-falling, she is not going to be the nominee.”last_img read more

Baby born on roadside as mom goes into labor while driving

first_imgSALT LAKE CITY — A pregnant Utah woman driving herself to the hospital gave birth to a healthy, nearly 10-pound baby boy on the side of an interstate highway Saturday, police said. The 32-year-old woman’s labor became overwhelming shortly after she left the North Ogden area and she called 911, said Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Jalaine Hawkes. The expectant mother pulled over on the side of Interstate 15 and waited for help. A state trooper and Police Chief Jean Loveland from the nearby town of Willard sped to the spot. Within minutes of their arrival, they helped her give birth to a 9.9-pound baby boy in her car.The mother and baby were taken in good condition to the hospital in Brigham City, about 60 miles north of Salt Lake City.The woman’s name was not immediately released.“Everyone is really feeling good,” Hawkes said. Roadside births happen occasionally in the state, especially in rural areas where it’s harder to get to a hospital quickly, Hawkes said. Troopers are all equipped with a delivery kit, and when babies are born healthy it’s a happy occasions for emergency crews as well. Another Utah woman gave birth to twins on the side of Interstate 80 in June 2013. In that case, 39-year-old mother Lynette Hales was 30 weeks pregnant and taking a last getaway in the Nevada gambling town of Wendover near the Utah border when she went into labor. The first baby had difficulty breathing at first, but both baby boys were flown to a hospital in fair condition.last_img read more

Time traveller talks on AM radio show predicts a war between aliens

first_imgAlien war with humans as depicted in the trailer of Hollywood movie Edge of TomorrowJason Quitt, a self-proclaimed time traveller recently talked on an AM radio show and claimed that a blood-shedding war will be fought between aliens and humans in the future. The man who claims himself as a multi-dimensional time traveller made these startling revelations while talking in this week’s Coast to Coast AM radio show.As per Jason Quitt, the upcoming war between aliens and humans will be so dreaded, and it will force mankind to change the existing world order. Quitt also made it clear that he is not able to change the future, thus creating a paradox.At one point in time, Quitt revealed that he witnessed a technologically advanced city where inhabitants could communicate with people and objects using telepathy. He also revealed that humans living in the future are integrated with artificial intelligence (AI). The time traveller added that the government in the future will be actually an Artificial Intelligence (AI) presence tapped into every person on the earth.Jason Quitt, during the talk also detailed the aftermath of the war between aliens and humans. As per Quitt, the war which will be fought between aliens and humans will not be the same as depicted in Hollywood movies, and it will be much more disastrous than that.”What see in a war zone is not what you see in the movies, it is very different and it hurts you to see those things. You come back to sort of shell-shocked and you don’t know how to express that because it sticks with you,” said Jason Quitt, Express.co.uk reports.Jason Quitte is now slowly emerging as a popular personality among conspiracy theorists all across the world. In several talks and interviews, Jason Quitte has made it clear that he does not have the capability to travel physically across time, instead, he can travel across the time by leaving his body.”Once I am out I lose all control. I have no idea where I am going or if I am going to even retain that memory. If I even try to influence the experience I wake up. These experiences feel like they last for only a couple of minutes at the most – they are very quick. So I am trying very hard to extend it,” revealed Quitte during the Coast to Coast AM talk.This is not the first time that a man has claimed to have travelled across time. Popular conspiracy theory YouTube channel Apex TV has been uploading time travel testimonials for the past couple of years, and most of them seem unbelievable. Even though conspiracy theorists are convinced of the videos uploaded by Apex TV, sceptics have dismissed these claims stating that these clips are shot with the help of amateur actors.last_img read more

Indonesian quake death toll reaches 555

first_imgA woman stares by her collapsed house in the village of Labu Pandan on Indonesia`s Lombok island on 22 August, 2018 after a series of recent earthquakes. Photo: AFPA string of deadly earthquakes that rocked Indonesia’s Lombok island this summer killed 555 people and injured nearly 1,500, the disaster agency said Friday, with hundreds of thousands left homeless.The picturesque island next to holiday hotspot Bali was hit by two deadly quakes on July 29 and August 5. On Sunday it was shaken by a string of fresh tremors and aftershocks, with the strongest measuring 6.9 magnitude.Indonesia’s disaster agency said Friday most of the deaths occured in the northern part of Lombok, with several also killed in neighbouring Sumbawa island.Many victims were killed by falling debris as the tremors rippled across the island, causing widespread devastation.Whole communities were flattened, leaving cracked streets lined with rubble, caved-in roofs and collapsed buildings.Some 390,000 people remain displaced after the quakes, the disaster agency said.Aid organisations have vowed to step up humanitarian assistance on the island as devastated residents struggle in makeshift displacement camps.They warned that access to food, shelter and clean water has been insufficient for some residents displaced by the disasters.”We’ve deployed troops to isolated villages that are difficult to reach,” disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said in a statement.”There are many villages… that are hard to access with motorbikes. Some aid has to be delivered on foot.”Rebuilding costs are estimated to top seven trillion rupiah ($478 million).Indonesia sits on the so-called Pacific “Ring of Fire”, where tectonic plates collide and many of the world’s volcanic eruptions and earthquakes occur.In 2004, a massive 9.1 magnitude quake struck off the coast of Sumatra and triggered a tsunami that killed 220,000 throughout the region, including 168,000 in Indonesia alone.last_img
