Annan names Belgian UN official as new chief of protocol

Secretary-General Kofi Annan has appointed Alice Hecht of Belgium, the former head of the Division of Administration of the United Nations Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), as his new Chief of Protocol.She succeeds Aminata Djermakoye of Niger, who will return to the UN’s European headquarters in Geneva.Ms. Hecht joined the Population Division of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs in 1974, handling projects related to demographic and socio-economic trends in Africa.Subsequently, her positions included Chief Administrative Officer of the UN Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission (UNMOVIC), charged with eliminating Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction, and of its predecessor organization, the UN Special Commission (UNSCOM).Mr. Annan’s spokesman praised the outgoing chief for her “very able and dedicated work.” He said she “performed her duties and responsibilities with poise, grace and elegance, combined with a strong commitment to excellence.” read more

Andrea Kacsits netting success on off court for Buckeye volleyball

Sophomore middle blocker Andrea Kacsits (4) scans the court during a match against Michigan Sept. 27 at St. John Arena. OSU won, 3-1.Credit: Mark Batke / Lantern photographerAndrea Kacsits has a future in volleyball, but it may have nothing to do with her standout play on the court.Kacsits, a sophomore middle blocker for the No. 24 Ohio State women’s volleyball team, has already started 48 matches for the Buckeyes, including each of OSU’s 20 games this season. She is one of five Buckeyes to record triple-digit kills in 2013 with 113.Senior defensive specialist Julianne Mandolfo said Kacsits is a unique player.“She’s one of the hardest working teammates I’ve ever played with,” Mandolfo said. “And the most passionate about everything and what she does.”Mandolfo called Kacsits a “powerful leader” on the team.Coach Geoff Carlston said Kacsits is important to the team, on and off the court.“She’s a great person for our team and our university as a whole and she’s hard working,” he said. “She brings a lot of positivity to our program when it comes to the outside community.”That hard work and positivity has paid off for Kacsits, as she is starting to get some recognition for her work outside of the university as well.The Rockford, Mich., native began an internship at Sports Imports over the summer, and has thrived in her new role.Sports Imports is a sports equipment company specializing in volleyball net systems. Kacsits’ job is to design the top net tape and poll pads for teams ranging from middle school to the collegiate level.“When you order a top net tape for your net, or you can order pads for the polls, I make those for different colleges, middle schools, high schools (and) sports clubs,” she said.Kacsits, a communication major at OSU, said teams send in order forms with specific details and she mocks up a design and sends them back to her internship leader. The internship leader then sends the examples back to the coach, who can decide whether or not to go forward with the design.When the Buckeyes travel to Madison, Wis., Nov. 17, Kacsits and the Buckeyes might get a chance to see her designs in person.“I did Wisconsin actually,” she said. “So when we go to Wisconsin, if they bought them, I’ll see my pads.”Sports imports marketing director Meghan Simons, who played for Carlston when he coached at Ohio University, said Kacsits designed the pads for the Side-Out Foundation’s Dig Pink fundraiser and helped design the pads for this year’s NCAA Tournament.Outside hitter Katie Mitchell, the only other sophomore on the team, said she has her own ideas for what should happen if the Buckeyes make a run in the tournament.“It would be awesome and I think we should probably politely ask to take (the pads) home afterwards,” Mitchell said. “Having a teammate with that kind of talent and ability is pretty neat.”While she has since found success, Kacsits wasn’t always on track to pursuing design.“I started my freshman year in health sciences and I hated it, just, so much,” Kacsits said.She added that she had done graphic designs for her high school teams and had always enjoyed it. After a conversation with her mother, Kacsits decided she should get back into design.At that point, she went to Carlston to tell him her plans, and he put her in contact with Simons.“(Carlston) gave me (Simons’) number and she needed an intern for the summer,” Kacsits said. “She liked my work and we just vibed really well so I got this opportunity.”Kacsits said her internship is a huge opportunity, especially since she had no job experience going in.Carlston said it is clear that Kacsits is enjoying herself, but also working hard.“Andrea is so excited about it, and she’s getting a lot out of it and learning a ton every single day,” Carlston said.If the Buckeyes want any chance to see designs created by one of their own at the NCAA Tournament, they will first have to fight their way through the rest Big Ten season.OSU is scheduled to host No. 13 Nebraska Friday at 7 p.m. in St. John Arena after coming off three games on the road. read more

George Michaels former partner flushed his drugs down toilet

first_imgHe said: “Of course I wish we’d never split up. But things would have had to change or we would both be dead.”I wish we’d both been able to clean up.”I started to have a drink problem at about 50. I couldn’t sleep, I drank to sleep, that’s when it all started. It fell apart.””George would text saying he wished we were together still — like in the beginning.”Our psychiatrist encouraged us to stay together even though it was a dysfunctional relationship.”I asked him if I should leave George and he looked me in the eye and said, ‘I think you are the only reason George stays alive’.”He added: “There was never a day I didn’t worry about him. Right until the end, I still loved him.” In 2008 he was cautioned for possession of class A drugs, which included crack cocaine, and class C drugs and in September 2010 he received an eight-week prison sentence and a five-year driving ban after he pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of drugs and possessing cannabis.Goss, 58, said Michael’s drug use and his own drinking led to arguments between the pair, telling the paper: “When I confronted him, he never denied it, never apologised. He was hard on me about drinking, because I developed a problem.”He added he believes if the pair had stayed together they could now both be dead. George Michael (L) smiles with his partner Kenny GossCredit:AFP/Getty Images In an interview to raise awareness about the pair’s charitable Goss-Michael Foundation, Goss told The Sun on Sunday: “I would find drugs and flush everything down the toilet, thinking, ‘If I just get rid of it he won’t get more’. He was absent-minded, so would just think he’d lost them.”He added: “I don’t think George necessarily thought he’d die young, but every time I looked into his eyes I thought, ‘My God I’m losing you, what is going on’.”Goss said when they first met, Michael only smoked a small amount of marijuana adding: “That was a gateway drug to the others. But it escalated. At one point he was smoking 25 joints a day. George Michael’s former partner Kenny Goss has claimed he used to flush the singer’s drugs down the toilet to try to end his addiction.Michael, who was found dead on Christmas Day at the age of 53, was killed by heart disease and a build-up of fat in his liver, which can be linked to drug and alcohol abuse.Goss, who was in a relationship with the Wham! star for 15 years, said he would get rid of the drugs he found around the house but watched the singer decline in front of him.

Hollande I have ended my partnership with Valerie Trierweiler

first_imgFRENCH PRESIDENT FRANCOIS Hollande has split with his longstanding partner Valerie Trierweiler after his affair with an actress nearly 20 years his junior.The announcement came after rumours in the French media that Hollande would formally announce the rupture today, on the eve of a planned visit by Trierweiler to India for charity work.Saying he was speaking as a private individual, Hollande announced:“I wish to make it known that I have ended my partnership with Valerie Trierweiler.”Trierweiler, 48, remains holed up in a presidential residence in Versailles outside Paris after leaving hospital last Saturday, where she was treated for a bout of “tiredness” brought on by press revelations of Hollande’s affair with actress Julie Gayet, 41.Trierweiler is due to fly to Mumbai tomorrow for a charity trip organised by French relief organisation Action Against Hunger, in what will be her first public appearance since the scandal broke.Hollande, 59, announced his separation from Segolene Royal, a senior member of his Socialist party and a presidential candidate in 2007, just after she lost the election to Nicolas Sarkozy.Trierweiler is not married to Hollande but assumed the role of First Lady at official functions after Hollande’s election in 2012.- © AFP, 2014Read: Blast at church in Rome ahead of Francois Hollande visitRead: French actress sues Closer magazine over reported affair with Hollandelast_img read more

They Swim Among Us Are Octopuses Actually Extraterrestrials

first_img Anything with eight arms, three hearts, camouflaging skin, and seemingly vast intelligence has to be alien, right?So says a team of 33 international scientists, who recently published a paper suggesting octopuses may actually be extraterrestrials.Published in the March issue of the journal Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology, the controversial (and probably false) conclusion states that the awesome animal either borrowed its genes from afar “future,” or “more realistically” hails from the cosmos.The octopus is traditionally believed to have evolved some 300 to 500 million years ago from the primitive nautiloids—now considered its distant cousin. So why is the soft-bodied cephalopod so different from its hard-shelled progenitors?That’s what molecular immunologist Edward Steele, astrobiologist Chandra Wickramasinghe, and 31 other researchers wondered.“The genetic divergence of octopus from its ancestral coleoid sub-class is very great,” according to the paper. “Its large brain and sophisticated nervous system, camera-like eyes, flexible bodies, instantaneous camouflage via the ability to switch color and shape are just a few of the striking features that appear suddenly on the evolutionary scene.”Transformative genes leading from the original nautilus down the line—to cuttlefish to squid to octopus—are not easily found in any pre-existing life form, the authors argued.Fair enough; that seems like a legitimate case for study.But the idea that octopuses arrived on Earth in “an already coherent group of functioning genes” within cryopreserved fertilized eggs, which “arrived in icy bodies several hundred million years ago” is a much harder pill to swallow.These scientists are not the first to consider such outlandish theories: Hawaiian mythology considers the octopus the only living holdover from our world’s previous incarnations.In the 2016 book Other Minds: The Octopus, the Sea, and the Deep Origins of Consciousness, author Peter Godfrey-Smith decries that the mollusk “is probably the closest we will come to meeting an intelligent alien.”But while most people still believe octopuses are a product of simple marine evolution, this paper is worthy of review—even with wary eyes.“So this article is useful, calling for attention, and it is worth thinking about,” virologist Karin Moelling of the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics wrote in a commentary on the study, as reported by Quartz. “Yet the main statement about viruses, microbes, and even animals coming to us from space cannot be taken seriously.”Nonetheless, the paper survived a year of intense peer review, as Steele told Cosmos: “It has thus passed some severe and torturous tests already,” he said.I’m sure lines like this didn’t help the process along:“Given that the complex sets of new genes in the octopus may have not come solely from horizontal gene transfers or simple random mutations of existing genes or by simple duplicative expansions, it is then logical to surmise, given our current knowledge of the biology of comets and their debris, the new genes and their viral drivers most likely came from space.”Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Lovren likely to miss Bayern Munichs clash

Osaka boosts IR hopes after winning bid to host World Expo 2025

first_img Huawei Japan joins Kansai Economic Federation with eye on World Expo 2025 and Osaka IR Load More Osaka’s bid to win one of the three Japanese casino licenses to be issued by next year were handed a huge boost on Friday with the city selected to host the 2025 World Expo at a Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) ballot in Paris.The southwestern port city will now host the event from 3 May to 3 November 2025, with around 28 million visitors expected to attend – boosting the economy by around US$18 billion. It also adds even greater strength to Osaka’s IR bid. Genting’s Resorts World Las Vegas names five key additions to executive team Lack of premium mass strategy begs questions of SJM’s Grand Lisboa Palace launch: analysts RelatedPosts Already considered a leading candidate to be granted a casino license, it is hoped that the city’s IR consortium partner would help cover some of the costs of construction on the Yumeshima Island site where both the expo and the IR would be located. It has also been suggested that the chosen consortium would pay for an extension to Osaka’s metro train line to the island.In a recent note, brokerage Nomura said, “A win for both the World Expo bid and the casino license would be expected to boost investment returns and have a positive impact on Osaka’s economy.“This would likely stimulate redevelopment around Yumeshima and benefit companies with real estate in the area and Osaka-based construction companies. We also believe that drawing more foreign visitors to the area would increase the stability and growth prospects for the many hotels already being developed in the area.”Osaka’s World Expo bid was based around the theme “Designing Future Society for our Lives” with the aim of boosting global efforts towards sustainability.The Japanese city beat out competing bids from Ekaterinburg in Russia and the Azerbaijani capital of Baku.last_img read more

US judge criticises plan to reunify children with parents

first_imgIn this 28 June file photo, protesters chant `Families belong together!` as they walk to the front doors of the federal courthouse in Brownsville, Texas, to bring attention to the US immigration policy. Photo: APA federal judge, responding to a plan to reunify children separated at the border, said he was having second thoughts about his belief that the Trump administration was acting in good faith to comply with his orders.The Justice Department on Friday filed a plan to reunify more than 2,500 children age 5 and older by a court-imposed deadline of 26 July using “truncated” procedures to verify parentage and perform background checks, which exclude DNA testing and other steps it took to reunify children under 5.The administration said the abbreviated vetting puts children at significant safety risk but is needed to meet the deadline.Chris Meekins, deputy assistant Health and Human Services secretary for preparedness and response, filed a declaration that he is fully committed to meeting the deadline. However, he does not believe “the placing of children into such situations is consistent with the mission of HHS or my core values.”US District Judge Dana Sabraw took umbrage at Meekins’ statement, disputing the official’s interpretation of his orders and saying that safe reunification could and will occur by 26 July.”It is clear from Meekins’s declaration that HHS either does not understand the court’s orders or is acting in defiance of them,” the judge wrote late Friday. “At a minimum, it appears he is attempting to provide cover to defendants for their own conduct in the practice of family separation, and the lack of foresight and infrastructure necessary to remedy the harms caused by that practice.”Sabraw, an appointee of President George W Bush, said Meekins’ statement calls into question his comments in court hours earlier that the administration was acting in good faith.Sabraw said in court Friday that the administration had largely complied with orders but, at the same time, he indicated he will be monitoring its actions ahead of the deadline.The judge said the administration must provide a list of names of parents in immigration custody and their children by Monday and complete background checks for them by Thursday. He scheduled four hearings over the next two weeks for updates, including one on Monday.”The task is laborious, but can be accomplished in the time and manner prescribed,” he wrote in his order.last_img

Neil deGrasse Tyson is making a game and it sounds rad

first_imgNeil deGrasse Tyson is making a game. That alone should be enough to get you pumped. Plus, it’s educational, and who doesn’t love learning from the wonderful, baritone astrophysicist?Neil deGrasse Tyson Presents: Space Odyssey will be all about creating and then exploring galaxies. In an interview with Digital Trends, co-creator Mike Murphy said that Space Odyssey will have elements of Minecraft and Civilization, but that the adventure would be unique.The goal is to model play after our universe — letting players build their own galaxies and star systems — as well as explore those created by scientists and authors like Bill Nye and George R.R. Martin. Real physics and science will be at the heart of the game, teaching you about the wonders of the universe as you play.AdChoices广告Much like Carl Sagan, and later Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Cosmos series, players will journey throughout these crafted worlds in ships that will let them explore just about anything.“Its size and scope is relative to the level of challenge you would like to undertake,” Murphy said. “You can grow and mature these planets as much as you’d like, creating colonies, ports, mining structures, undertake trade of elements you discover/mine or invent or innovate. We are adding strategic partners that will consult with us on design and tech possibilities, including Bigelow Aerospace and the National Space Society to name a couple.”The team wants to avoid the pitfall of most educational games which are largely just quizzes. Brandii Grace, the design lead for Space Odyssey said, “Right now, millions of people are learning the names, stats, and mechanics of catching 151 virtual creatures. Without that learning, the game wouldn’t be fun.”Grace has experience working in the mainstream games industry on projects like Call of Duty. They hope that they can leverage that knowledge as well as modern game design ideas to make something that engages players in new ways.These are some lofty goals, but Tyson and the rest of the team believe that they’re working on something truly special. In time, they’ll want to build in crossovers with Tyson’s television shows, as well as adding in VR support.If all goes well, the beta should launch in 2017.

Parades, street music, dancing, good eats, a tope featuring magnificent prancing horses, and bull riding – one-handed and no-touch. Tomorrow, May 4, there will be an all-age, everybody’s welcome recreational (no racing) bike ride along the shore of beautiful Lake Arenal. The first 100 participants receive a free commemorative T-shirt. If the weather continues to be so fabulous, wear a hat and plenty of sunscreen.The Arenal Report usually avoids religious issues, but just this once. It appears that the prayers of many are being answered. The 25 km road to Guatuso finally is being widened, concrete drainage canals built on both sides, and a new roadbed constructed. Hopefully the answered prayers include asphalt.Of the dozens of people interviewed concerning the road improvements, only one person expressed disappointment. A long-time retired Gringo resident explained that he would put his laundry into two 55-gallon drums with soap and water, then drive his truck to Guatuso. There, he would drain out the dirty water and add clean for the return trip. The road had always been so rough that when he reached home, his clothes had been agitated to pristine freshness. We suggested that he start using the road to the Red Sunset B+B and Ecolodge to provide adequate sloshing.–William & Jean Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Shorthanded Costa Rica ties Ireland 11 in final World Cup warmup with

Parliament to vote on fund for depositors

first_imgParliament will vote on Friday on a Solidarity Fund to provide aid to Laiki depositors affected by the 2013 bail, the depositor’s group Sykala announced on Saturday.The group said they recently attended two meetings of the House Finance Committee where law proposals were jointly tabled by Disy, Diko and separately by the Solidarity Movement and the Green Party.The proposals look to alleviate the economic difficulties and challenges from the 2013 bail-in, and their final draft will be decided on Monday, Sykala said.The fund will deal with individuals who have been adversely affected by the decisions of 2013, and at the plenary on Friday another proposal will be submitted which will deal with legal entities / companies.The plenary is expected to refer this proposal to the Parliamentary Finance Committee for discussion.Sykala said that so far, the fund has received €55 million in cash, and is expected to receive state-owned real-estate property valued at approximately €125 million.Meanwhile, Sykala also said that the district courts in Cyprus are also expected to decide on the ‘merger’ of cases filed by individuals over the bail in in the coming weeks.“About a year ago, we filed an application for a ‘merger’ of the lawsuits, so that a small number of pilot cases could be heard, the decisions of which would apply to the other cases. Recently the first hearing of our application took place, during which the positions of the lawyers on each side were filed in writing,” Sykala said.According to the depositors, the government appears to have given their consent through the Attorney General’s office, while Laiki Bank, the Central Bank, and Laiki’s auditors are calling for the cases to be tried separately.Sykala claims that if the cases are examined separately it will take decades for the process to be completed.“They will also block the judiciary because there are not enough judges to handle such a volume of cases,” the depositors said.Sykala added that they hoped the court would decide to merge the cases taking into account the costly legal fees of the individuals, and the time it would take to try the cases.You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityReassurance for your refugeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
