Burundi UN presence should be reconfigured to support new activities Annan says

The report says that the UN Office in Burundi will need to have its staffing and resources increased as it supports UN activities, particularly in view of the repatriation to Bujumbura of the Implementation Monitoring Committee (IMC), which is chaired by Ambassador Berhanu Dinka, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for the Great Lakes.The Secretary-General also reaffirms the UN’s determination to do everything possible to help bring about a negotiated settlement of the conflict. “The grave humanitarian consequences of the conflict, its adverse effect on an already troubled region and the ever-present danger of an upsurge in ethnic violence make it necessary for the international community to continue to give priority attention to Burundi,” he says.The progress made on the transitional arrangements highlight the urgent need to cease hostilities to allow the full implementation of the Arusha peace agreement, Mr. Annan adds, reiterating his call for the armed groups to negotiate a stop to the fighting and to join the peace process.On the development side, the Secretary-General reports that a number of initiatives are being put in place to support the transitional institutions as part of the “good governance” programme and invites countries to follow through on their pledges made last December in Paris at a donors’ conference.The Secretary-General also pays tribute to the late former President of Tanzania, Julius Nyerere, and former South African President Nelson Mandela for their role as facilitators of the peace process. read more

2ndhalf explosion by Kelsey Mitchell lifts Ohio State womens basketball over Northwestern

The last time Northwestern was able to complete this feat was in 2011. But OSU kept it that way, forcing the series with the Wildcats to 1-1 after coming out on top 76-73.Both teams came into the game ready to battle, applying excessive pressure, forcing turnovers and pushing the ball up the floor in pursuit of easy buckets.The cylinder was not allowing the rock to connect with the nylon in the first quarter for the Buckeyes, as they struggled from the field. Northwestern gave OSU no choice but to make adjustments early so that it wouldn’t let the game slip away.The Wildcats played the first quarter with authority, and were able to stay poised against OSU’s full-court press to get quality shots in the paint.“We handled their pressure well,” Northwestern coach Joe McKeown said after the game. “We were able to get shots, get the ball inside out and attack them a little bit.”Northwestern followed junior forward Nia Coffey’s lead in the first half, as she put in 13 points to give the Wildcats a 34-30 lead at halftime. Coffey was able to make shots off the dribble, knock down a deep ball and make plays around the rim.The high-scoring Buckeyes, who average a stellar 48.5 percent shooting from the field, shot a whopping 31.3 percent heading into the locker room at the half.OSU sophomore guard Kelsey Mitchell, who is nationally recognized for her prolific scoring, was quiet in the first two quarters, only scoring one point in the first 20 minutes of action. OSU coach Kevin McGuff wasn’t worried about Mitchell’s struggles, however, because like most tremendous shooters, she just needed to keep shooting.“‘Just keep playing,’” McGuff said to Mitchell during the game. “She’s so good. I knew she would turn it on when we needed it … I told her, ‘go ahead and slow down, but stay aggressive.’“The Buckeyes embarked on a 6-0 run at the beginning of the third quarter, and continued to show spurts that gave Scarlet and Gray spectators hope for the finale.OSU senior guard Ameryst Alston (14) dribbles the ball during a game against Northwestern on Jan. 28 at the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo EditorAt the end of the third the home crowd erupted after a Mitchell 3-pointer with contact, and then a 4-point play conversion from the charity stripe.The final quarter began with a Northwestern 54-50 lead but was action packed and filled with an overabundance of lead changes.Once the five-minute mark hit, OSU’s urgency level turned up a notch, moving the ball around smoothly on offense and executing the open shots that it was given. Sloppy play by the Wildcats in the final two minutes allowed the Buckeyes to march onto victory, keeping Northwestern’s brooms from coming out.Despite her poor shooting performance in the first half, Mitchell was able to go on a surge in the fourth quarter and finish with 27 points to lead all scorers.“People like (senior guard) Cait (Craft) and coach said keep shooting,” Mitchell said after the game. “You can’t stop shooting then because you will never get in a rhythm.”Craft, who had been struggling with her shot the few games prior to Thursday’s, went a perfect 5-of-5 from the field, finishing with 14 points and exemplifying her senior leadership in a tough game.“We needed this win, just to bounce back,” Craft said. “I don’t think at this time last year we would have won a game like that … it’s just showing how much the group of girls that we have have matured and grown.”The Buckeyes will look to extend their winning streak to five games as they get set to travel to Illinois to face off against the Fighting Illini on Monday. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. at the State Farm Center in Champaign. read more

Grandfather died in go karting accident when his daughterinlaw crashed into the

first_img“I yelled ‘why aren’t they looking ahead?’.”She continued: “I saw a person eject from the kart along with a booster seat. It looked like the kart exploded. My heart sank.”The inquest into the death of Mr Fairweather, of Oulton Broad near Lowestoft, Suffolk, is listed to take five days and continues tomorrow. A grandfather was killed in a go karting accident when his daughter-in-law crashed into the back of him, an inquest heard.Allan Fairweather, 63, was celebrating his brother’s 60th birthday on a family day out but was flung 12 metres from the vehicle following the collision.He suffered a traumatic chest injury at Ellough Park Raceway near Beccles, Suffolk and died at the scene on September 25 2016.An inquest in Ipswich was shown CCTV footage of the lead-up to the incident which happened on the finish straight during the final lap of a six-lap practice race.Mr Fairweather’s son Jason finished in first place and the finish line marshal started to wave the chequered flag, informing drivers they should slow down, the court was told.Drivers continued to cross the line, and Mr Fairweather appeared to slow to a stop just before he reached it when his  daughter-in-law Peggy Fairweather was seen rounding the final bend and overtaking another driver, Adam Rouse, on the finish straight before crashing into the back of Mr Fairweather’s kart.

New Species of SmileyFaced Spiders Named After Obamas David Bowie

first_imgStay on target Watch: Dolphin Leaps Feet Away From Unsuspecting SurferNASA Says 2 Asteroids Will Safely Fly By Earth This Weekend What do David Attenborough, Barack and Michelle Obama, Leonardo DiCaprio, and David Bowie have in common?They are the namesakes of 15 new species of “smiley-faced” spiders.Primarily found basking in the Caribbean sun, the arachnids were discovered by a University of Vermont scientist (and four of his students).“This was an undergraduate research project,” spider expert Ingi Agnarsson, a professor of biology at UVM, said in a statement.Named for the smiley face pattern on their abdomens, the Spintharus spider has long been thought to have one widespread species—from northern North America down to northern Brazil.But when a research team from the Caribbean Biogeography Project (CarBio)—spearheaded by Agnarsson of UVM’s Biology Department and Greta Binford at Lewis & Clark College—looked closer, they found more than 15 regional breeds.“And if we keep looking, we’re sure there are more,” Agnarsson said.Say hello to Spintharus davidbowiei (via Agnarsson Lab students)On top of the glory of their discovery, participating students got to christen the insects—some named after beloved family members, others for revered politicians, actors, and musicians.“We all named the Bernie Sanders spider,” according to Lily Sargeant, a project contributor who graduated from UVM last year. “We all have tremendous respect for Bernie,” a senator from Vermont. “He presents a feeling of hope.“Our time on this earth is limited,” she said. “But I think that ideas are not that way. It is my hope that through naming that spider after Bernie we can remember the ideas that he has at this pivotal point in the life of our nation.”Not everyone took such a diplomatic route: Student Chloe Van Patten harked back to her high school “obsession”—Leonardo DiCaprio.“I’m over my crush, but now that he’s involved in environmental issues, I love him even more,” the recent graduate said. “So I named a spider after him hoping that if he read our study, he might go out to dinner with me and talk about climate change.”Meet Spintharus berniesandersi (via Agnarsson Lab students)Agnarsson approves of his pupils’ process, explaining that the team “wanted to honor people who stood up for both human rights and warned about climate change—leaders and artists who promoted sensible approaches for a better world.”A better world in which the Spintharus genus thrives for decades to come.Unfortunately, conservation concerns may damped those dreams; recent studies suggest these spiders have not been interbreeding (exchanging genes) for millions of years.“Thoughts about conservation change dramatically when you go from having a common, widespread species to an endemic on, say, Jamaica, that has very specific conservation needs,” Agnarsson said.Good taxonomy, according to the team, can help protect and preserve Spintharus davidattenboroughi, S. barackobamai, S. michelleobamaae, S. berniesandersi, S. davidbowiei, and S. leonardodicaprioi for future generations.The complete study was published this week in the Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Itsu rolls out employee wellbeing and recognition programme

first_imgAsian restaurant organisation Itsu is rolling out a new employee wellbeing and recognition programme to 70 of its restaurants to help improve staff communication and support the physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing of its 1,300 employees.Itsu began the roll out of the new programme, provided by LifeWorks, in September 2017 following a successful two-week trial that took place in May 2017. The trial involved 350 staff across various Itsu stores and its academy.The programme enables employees to gain 24/7 access to support measures relating to personal, emotional, physical, professional and financial wellbeing, both by phone and online. This includes counselling services, clinical support, and coaching.In addition, the programme includes a recognition platform that helps to encourage instant communication between staff members. The platform allows employees to share news and stories, set up meeting points, ask for help, organise social activities, and create mini communities.Staff can also award peer-to-peer recognition via the platform to give colleagues a virtual ‘pat on the back’. During the pilot period in May, more than 1,500 peer-to-peer recognition notifications were delivered between employees as part of the programme.Itsu is looking at featuring preventative initiatives within the programme too, which will be created and added on an ongoing basis. This will include challenges and participation incentives, as well as unique prevention-related content that will be based on employees’ interests.Employees will also have access to discounts and cashback at more than 9,000 retailers, restaurants and leisure venues.Itsu communicated the new programme to staff using a photo booth experience, as well as arranging demonstrations of the services and providing assistance to help employees sign up. The roll out communications include emails, a poster campaign, a promotional video, store ambassadors to promote the programme and encourage staff to sign up, as well as including the scheme in ‘How to’ guides in stores.Annabel Nash (pictured), head of central HR at Itsu, said: “At Itsu, we put people at the heart of what we do and best in class communication is key to a healthy ongoing relationship with our teams. LifeWorks is a great fit for us; we have a largely millennial workforce, so having the ability to communicate with each and every person in a way they will connect with is fundamental.“People at the heart of what we do is fundamental to the success of Itsu. We are always looking for ways to engage and develop staff, and have a strong training platform already.”last_img read more

In Other News Plan for Ferry to Serve MacDill AFB Moves Ahead

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR Plans to introduce high-speed passenger ferry service to MacDill AFB are moving forward, although the project doesn’t yet have the green light. At this time, project advocates still are trying to secure funding and working with city and county partners to obtain needed approvals for design and construction, reported WFLA. The service would connect a yet-to-be-determined point in South Hillsborough County across Tampa Bay to the base, relieving traffic congestion on clogged highways as well as lessening bottlenecks at the base’s front gates. “We look at this as a potential solution for congestion issues for our service members moving into and out of MacDill,” said Steven Bernstein, chair of the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce. … By Thursday afternoon, a majority of voice services had been restored at Fort Drum, N.Y., after the post’s entire phone system suffered a catastrophic breakdown Monday. Crews installed a new voice over internet protocol — or VOIP — system to replace the 15,000 phone lines that went out of service, reported the Watertown Daily Times. The Army is moving toward replacing aging landline systems with VOIP, so it didn’t make sense to fix the existing system, according to a spokeswoman. “This wasn’t planned,” she said.last_img read more

first_imgSrinagar: Accusing the Centre of forcing “demographic change” and “settler colonies” in Kashmir in “violation of all international laws” and UN resolutions, All Parties Hurriyat Conference Chairperson Syed Ali Geelani has urged Jammu and Kashmir’s people to “resist at this critical juncture”.

Against San Francisco Johnson suffered a left leg

first_imgAgainst San Francisco, Johnson suffered a left leg injury and was placed on the injured reserve-designated to return list on Dec. 1.His return would have been Super Bowl 50.But with the Cardinals losing the NFC Championship Game, 49-15, to Carolina, there is no trip planned to Santa Clara for Johnson, or any of his teammates.There remains, though, the possibility of a trip to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl, which would be his fourth career appearance in the all-star exhibition.“It’s not the Super Bowl, but it’s another game to play,” Johnson said. “Coming from not thinking I was going to be able to play to being able to be on this team with all this success, make it to the playoffs and to get a Pro Bowl on top of that would be good, too.”At the moment, only two of the Cardinals’ seven Pro Bowlers will play in the game. Justin Bethel and Calais Campbell are in Hawaii, while Carson Palmer, Larry Fitzgerald, Mike Iupati and Patrick Peterson have all bowed out.Tyrann Mathieu was selected but was never going to play after suffering a season-ending knee injury two days before the Pro Bowl announcement.Barring a last-minute withdrawal, Johnson will instead place his focus on 2016. TEMPE, Ariz. – The call has yet to come.Should it, Arizona Cardinals running back Chris Johnson is ready to answer.“It’s a possibility. I was voted as an alternate (to the 2016 Pro Bowl) so just sitting around waiting on that and see what happens,” he said this week.The Pro Bowl is Sunday at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.Johnson led the Cardinals in rushing with 814 yards despite missing the last five games plus the entire postseason run.

Rather, he was already looking ahead to the possibility of an all-Johnson backfield.“Me and David, we’re two different types of players,” he said, speaking of the rookie who replaced him in the lineup. “He can go out into the five-receiver sets and do a lot of those plays that B.A. (head coach Bruce Arians) likes to run. Even like before I got hurt the kind of situation that me and David had, I was doing a lot of the running. He was still coming in doing a lot of the running and doing a lot of the pass plays and stuff like that, so I think it’s something that could work.” – / 15 The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo 33 Comments   Share   Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Johnson is set to become an unrestricted free agent, one of 17 on the Cardinals’ roster.“Just praying that the right situation happens for me. Would love to be back here,” he said. “I’m going to take a couple of weeks off and just see where I go from there.”Johnson joined the Cardinals two weeks into training camp after injuries to Andre Ellington and David Johnson left a void at the running back position.Chris Johnson, who became the sixth player in NFL history to break 2,000 rushing yards with 2,006 yards in 2009, had been waiting for a chance to resume his pro career. Teams, though, appeared to shy away from the eight-year veteran following an offseason incident in which he was shot in the shoulder during a drive-by in Orlando.“I didn’t think I would be playing football this year, so being able to make it to the playoffs and then the Championship Game, it was just a blessing,” Johnson said, referring to his season in Arizona.Johnson began the season as a backup but then assumed the starter’s role when Ellington got hurt Week 1.Johnson ran with the opportunity, literally.Four times he topped 100 rushing yards, tying the single-season franchise mark set by Stump Mitchell, currently the team’s running backs coach, in 1985. Among Johnson’s efforts was a season-best 122 yards against Baltimore on Monday Night Football.last_img read more

Two South African politicians speak about the peace experience in their country

first_imgIn complications, lie solutions, said two South African politicians who discussed recently during their visit on the island lessons learnt from the reconciliation process in South Africa and how these can be helpful in the case of Cyprus.Former Minister of Defence and Constitutional Issues Roelf Meyer and former MP and candidate for the African National Congress presidency, Mathews Phosa, visited Cyprus last week at the invitation of ruling Disy to participate in a series of events on ‘Conflict solution procedures and best practices’.  During their stay they were received by President Nicos Anastasiades and House Speaker Demetris Syllouris.Speaking to the Cyprus News Agency, Meyer firstly emphasised that there are many differences between the situation in Cyprus and South Africa, noting that ‘no two conflicts are the same. Each one is unique’.“We are very cautious not to create the impression that we think that South Africa’s experience can be repeated in Cyprus. Definitely not. What we are saying is that there are certain basic principles that if followed, then the chances are better to find a settlement’, he said.The first point he made was that there must be an inclusive approach. In South Africa, he said, they succeeded in creating space for everybody to participate in the negotiations and contribute towards the solution.The second one is that ‘we succeeded in building trust across the divide. We come from opposing sides in the South African conflict’ he said referring to his colleague, ‘and we were like enemies when we started. There was a complete distrust across the divide and through the negotiations we succeeded in building trust in each other to the extent that that trust helped us to overcome the differences and find a solution. And the proof of that is that we are here together as friends and brothers in peace. And that is a very important message from the South African story’.The last point he made is that they took ownership of their problem, its resolution and their own destiny.‘We took responsibility ourselves. We did not leave it to others. We were not trying to find mediators or facilitators to come from outside. We were directly negotiating with each other. When we had breakdowns we had to look each other in the eyes and say, so, what now? We did not depend on outsiders. Of course, we were fortunate to have leaders like Mandela and de Klerk. But we do not overemphasize that because other situations may not be that fortunate’, he pointed out.Referring to Cyprus, he said that he has visited the island on many occasions in the past, and pointed out that ‘I think there has been a lot of progress in the past two years in particular and we have to applaud the leaders on both sides for the progress made’.‘There is obviously a stalemate at the moment, an impasse, and that has to be addressed’ he continued, saying that they had experienced many stalemates in their experience but they focused on their vision for the future.‘The key is that those in negotiations should sit down and ask themselves the question what is it that we want from the future, instead of what is it that we want to protect from the past and if there are obstacles now, how do we remove those obstacles and be specific in addressing them and I think the answer will come’ he concluded.Mathews Phosa stressed the need for a sincere dialogue in order to overcome problems.‘You have to talk to each other, openly, honestly and understand the other person’s fears and concerns’ he said, noting that big compromises must be made and one must be ready for a ‘give and take’.Phosa also said that certain sunset clauses may be necessary, ‘certain arrangements which may not be permanent but at the beginning are necessary to build confidence. So those things need to be looked at’.He emphasized the need to have a feeling of security and to have a strong judiciary.On the situation in Cyprus, he said that it has its own complications, pointing out that ‘in those complications, lie solutions’.‘Leaders must see solutions in the complications. Like I say, be prepared to give and take. There is a lot of pain around here I think which is historical. But people who want peace live beyond pain, they live beyond the past, they assume a moral high ground and move on. For the young generation there is no interest to stick to the past. They want to move on. And the people of Cyprus must move on’ he concluded.The Republic of Cyprus, a full EU member state, has been divided by Turkish troops since 1974.
