UN appeals for 6 million to feed 90000 Burundian refugees

14 March 2008The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) today appealed for $6 million so that it can continue to feed up to 90,000 Burundian refugees returning to their home country from neighbouring Tanzania. The agency warned that without an influx of funds, it may have to halt its food assistance by May or June when the returns are expected to peak. “WFP needs donors to provide for the vital needs of the returnees – most of whom are women and children – at this critical moment,” said the agency’s Burundi country director, Jean-Charles Dei. “”It would be a tragedy if we are unable to provide the full support refugees will need when returning to Burundi.” Hundreds of thousands of Burundians have sought refuge in neighbouring countries over the years to escape deadly ethnic tensions or outright civil war. Last year, a tripartite commission – comprising the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the Governments of Burundi and Tanzania – agreed that those who fled Burundi in 1993 should repatriate, with as many as 60,000 of these refugees expected to return to Burundi. The commission also decided that the so-called “1972 Burundians” – some 218,000 people who fled to Tanzania that year – be given the choice to either remain and apply for Tanzanian citizenship or return to their home country. Tens of thousands of refugees have expressed their desire to return to Burundi. WFP and its partners are supplying six-month food rations for each repatriating family, and UNHCR is providing a 50,000 Burundian franc cash grant – equivalent to $45 – to each returning refugee. Each family leaving Tanzania also receives WFP prepared meals in transit camps. However, to meet the urgent needs of these refugees, WFP has already been forced to scale back rations to other recipients of its aid in Burundi, including schoolchildren and mothers. To keep its Burundian operations – which provide food for 600,000 people monthly – running the agency requires an additional $20 million. “It’s crucial for the consolidation of peace in Burundi that not only the returnees, but also the communities that are receiving them, receive the assistance they need at this seminal time in the country’s history,” Mr. Dei noted. Last weekend, UNHCR kicked off a landmark two-year programme to repatriate those “1972 Burundians” wishing to return to their home country. The new programme – which the agency deems as one of its most important in Africa this year – is heavily dependent on contributions, and so far, $9 million of the $34 million UNHCR has appealed for has been received. read more

Girls groomed for suicide missions fight back against the extremists of Lake

“It was market day in Bol and I was with two other girls who like me carried explosives,” the young woman told UN News. “I was just 15 years old. I was given drugs and had been trained by the extremist Boko Haram terrorist group to be a suicide bomber.”The local authorities detected the three teenage girls and tried to arrest them, but the two other girls detonated their explosive vests, killing themselves and seriously wounding Halima Yakoy Adam. She survived but had both legs amputated below her knees.Halima is one of the extraordinary young women, introduced to the United Nations Deputy Secretary-General in Chad on Thursday. UN News is accompanying her and other senior women from the world body, and the African Union, on a high-level visit that will include neighbouring Niger this weekend.Boko Haram has been active in north-east Nigeria and the neighbouring countries of Cameroon, Chad and Niger for several years. Its chief aim is to create an Islamist state in the north of Nigeria. Its campaign of terror has caused the displacement of some 10 million people as of 2017, and led to the widespread destruction of basic infrastructure, such as health and educational facilities, as well as agricultural land and machinery.These groups manipulate and exploit inequality. It is for this reason that our efforts to prevent violent extremism need to prioritize gender equality. – Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka (UN Women)Coordination among the affected countries including through the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) has led to what the UN described last year as “encouraging progress in the fight against Boko Haram.”  But to compensate for that success, the group has changed its tactics, increasing the use of suicide attacks. In June and July 2017, the United Nations recorded some 130 attacks attributed to Boko Haram, leading to the deaths of 284 civilians in the four affected countries.Raising AwarenessSpeaking in Bol after talking to Halima, Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed told UN News: “This is one of many stories I have heard, as this is where I come from. I come from Nigeria. This is sadly the story of many girls; but unlike Halima many did not survive.”  Ms Mohammed praised the young woman’s resilience, adding: “I think there is more awareness of suicide bombing today than there was before. There is nothing more powerful than a victim who tells her story. Halima has moved from victim to survivor because she is using that experience to educate other girls.”Although the incidence of suicide bombing appears to be increasing in Chad, it is a relatively new development for women to be involved, according to Clarisse Mehoudamadji Nailar from CELIAF, a Chadian association of women leaders.“Extremism amongst women didn’t exist in the past in Chad. This seems to be a new phenomenon,” she said. “The Government is making a big effort to fight the extremists and meanwhile non-governmental organizations in Chad are trying to educate and sensitize women about the dangers of extremism.”A joint United Nations-African Union mission has been in Chad for two days. The visit which also included the Foreign Minister of Sweden, Margot Wallström, has focused on the importance of women’s meaningful participation in promoting peace, security and development.The Executive Director of the UN’s gender agency, UN Women, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka- also part of the mission – said that groups like Boko Haram aim to manipulate young girls to carry out terrorist acts. “What is common to these terrorist groups is the subjugation of women and girls and a denial of their rights”, she told UN News.“These groups manipulate and exploit inequality. It is for this reason that our efforts to prevent violent extremism need to prioritize gender equality.” She added that “Halima’s story epitomizes the relationship between the lack of power of women and terrorism – a young woman who had no choices over decisions relating to her own life.”Back in Bol in Chad’s Lac Region, Halima has finished her training as a paralegal. Today she considers herself an agent change of who sensitizes “my sisters against radicalism and extreme violence,” she said adding: “I am happy to have a second chance in life and now I want to give back to my community.” read more

Kuwait bans DSLR cameras countrywide for no obvious reason

first_imgIn a strange and unexplained move, three of Kuwait’s ministries have banned the use of DSLR cameras in the Middle East country, specifically in streets or in malls. The joint offense against DSLRs was launched by Kuwait’s Ministry of Information, Ministry of Social Affairs and Ministry of Finance, and what’s interesting here is that it’s not a ban on photography in total: cell phone cameras and point-and-shoot digicams are still totally fine. Even micro four thirds and other mirrorless cameras are fine. It’s only if your camera has a mirror do you have to worry about it being banned.AdChoices广告Identification-carrying photojournalists are not subject to the law, but everyone else is, and so far, the Kuwaiti government hasn’t been forthcoming in explaining why DSLRs, in particular, are banned. It’s not uncommon, of course, for governments to ban camera use around embassies, banks and monuments, fearing that the photos will be used by terrorists planning attacks. Again, though, Kuwait is not banning photography in specific places, or photography even in general: only DSLRs are subject to the ban. Here’s my best guess: the Kuwaiti Government thinks that the larger form factor of a DSLR would allow terrorists to disguise a firearm or a bomb as one. Still, without a specific threat being publicly confronted, it’s hard not to be mystified by the Kuwaiti governments’ prohibition…. and perhaps chalk it up to some politicians’ sensitivity about his lack of photogeniality than any terrorist attack.Read more at Pocket-Lintlast_img read more

Tornade de feu un phénomène rare filmé à Hawaï

first_imgTornade de feu : un phénomène rare filmé à HawaïHawaï – Des images exceptionnelles capturées dimanche 29 août sur l’île principale de l’archipel d’Hawaï montrent le déchaînement d’une tornade de feu. Un phénomène rare issu de l’action combinée du vent et des flammes. Des panaches d’épaisse fumée noire en rotation, formant un vortex autour de flammes de plus de 6 mètres de hauteur. Tel est le “spectacle” auquel ont assisté les pompiers, obligés de reculer alors qu’ils luttaient contre un feu de brousse près d’une route sur l’île d’Hawaï, dans l’archipel du même nom où seuls 60% des incendies d’été sont actuellement maîtrisés.À lire aussiDes dauphins surpris en train de faire du ”toboggan” sur des baleines au large d’Hawaï Ces tourbillons ou tornades de feu se forment lorsqu’une colonne d’air chaud, entourée de flammes, s’élève, entraînant la formation d’une zone de basse pression au niveau du sol. L’air froid s’y engouffre alors, propulsant les flammes parfois à plus de 100 mètres de hauteur. En 1923, au Japon, à la suite d’un tremblement de terre, un énorme tourbillon de feu avait ainsi tué 38.000 personnes en quelques minutes, à Tokyo. Un tel phénomène avait également été filmé au mois d’août dans la région de Sao Paulo au Brésil, avec des flammes de plusieurs centaines de mètres (voir la vidéo de cette précédente tornade de feu).Voir la vidéo de la tornade de feu d’Hawaï : https://www.maxisciences.com/tornade-de-feu/une-tornade-de-feu-filmee-a-hawai_art9040.htmlLe 6 septembre 2010 à 10:15 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Vancouver council will discuss comment formats

first_imgo What: The Vancouver City Council will discuss policy updates, including its citizen communications, in a workshop.o When: 4 to 5 p.m. Mondayo Where: City Hall, 210 E. 13th St.o FYI: There is no citizen communication during workshops, but public comment can be given at the end of the 7 p.m. meeting that night. The council also would have to vote on any proposed changes in a subsequent meeting.o Online: Council agenda.Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt has softened his stance on cutting off CVTV cameras during some public comment at city council meetings — but he still says changes are necessary to fix what he calls a hostile environment in council chambers.Leavitt floated a proposal last week to move any public comment not related to that night’s agenda to a once-a-month mini-town hall that would not be televised, an idea that angered many of the council’s regular speakers.Currently, citizens may speak at the end of every meeting on any subject. But Leavitt said the environment has changed to one of harassment and intimidation when newcomers express opinions — particularly about light rail and the Columbia River Crossing — that some of the regulars (who most frequently speak against the project) don’t share.“It isn’t that some people want to use this opportunity to speak to us every week and speak to us over and over about the same topics,” the mayor said. “That’s fine. I’ve heard it for eight years now. The issue is how citizens are treating citizens. I’m looking for avenues to prevent further harassment and bullying, and provide an environment that even the Boy Scouts would be comfortable in.”last_img read more

Publisher Spending Flat on ManufacturingProduction Technology

first_imgThe full results of the 2011 FOLIO: Manufacturing and Production Trends Survey will appear in FOLIO: Magazine’s September issue (debuting September 1). The good news: Publishers aren’t cutting manufacturing and production budgets as much as they did last year. The bad news: They aren’t exactly investing in magazine manufacturing and production, either.Sixty-one percent of respondents to the 2011 FOLIO: Manufacturing and Production Trends Survey (conducted by Readex Research) say investment in the manufacturing and production department is flat, compared to 12 percent who saw a decrease (an improvement on 26 percent who saw cuts last year) and 14 percent who say spending increased (up from 10 percent who said the same last year). However, most respondents say their company invested less than $10,000 in new production technology last year. The majority of respondents (59 percent) also said their companies use in-house resources for pre-press, while 14 percent outsource completely and 15 percent use a combinational of internal and external resources (62 percent of respondents say art directors are involved in production, down from 68 percent in 2010). While more automated systems are catching on, 27 percent of respondents say their company uses ad portals, while 21 percent say they use online insertion orders. last_img read more

After Florida Gets Offshore Drilling Exemption Other States Ask For The Same

first_imgDavid McNew/Getty ImagesAn oil platform sits in the distance at Refugio State Beach in California in 2015. Now that the Trump administration has announced plans to allow new oil and gas drilling leases in more federal waters, a number of states are petitioning to be exempt from the change.After the Trump administration promised Florida that the state would be exempt from expanded offshore oil drilling, other coastal states had just one question: “What about us?”From Oregon to South Carolina, governors and other leaders are publicly noting that Florida does not have a monopoly on picturesque coasts, tourist economies or local opposition to offshore drilling. But currently, it’s the only state to have received a pledge from the administration that it won’t be considered for new oil and gas platforms.“New York doesn’t want drilling off our coast either,” tweeted New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. “Where do we sign up for a waiver?”After the news broke about Republican-governed Florida, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., asked whether there are different rules for blue states like California.Dear Secretary Zinke, California like Florida, has hundreds of miles of beautiful coastline and a governor who wants to keep it that way. Or is that not enough for blue states? https://t.co/vQ5Qtl8Xik— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) January 10, 2018Meanwhile, South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, a Republican, told reporters in South Carolina he plans to ask the Trump administration for an exemption, calling it “a matter of serious importance.”Last week, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announced the proposed plan to sell offshore drilling licenses in waters that were protected under the Obama administration. The proposal would take effect in 2019, as NPR’s Merrit Kennedy reported:“The plan would determine the size, timing and location of leasing activities and would replace President Barack Obama’s 2017-2022 program. It includes all but one of 26 “planning areas” in federal waters off U.S. coastlines, making up about 90 percent of the outer continental shelf.“That’s in comparison with the 94 percent that is now off limits, according to the administration. …“The proposed change is welcomed by the oil and gas industry. In a statement, the National Ocean Industries Association praised Zinke ‘for offering the broadest possible acreage for potential inclusion in our nation’s next offshore leasing program.’“Meanwhile, environmental organizations are alarmed and stress that it could place wildlife and coastal communities at risk of a spill.”But one week later came the carve-out for Florida. In a statement released Tuesday, Zinke praised Florida Gov. Rick Scott as “a straightforward leader that can be trusted,” and made a pledge:“President Trump has directed me to rebuild our offshore oil and gas program in a manner that supports our national energy policy and also takes into consideration the local and state voice. I support the governor’s position that Florida is unique and its coasts are heavily reliant on tourism as an economic driver. As a result of discussion with Governor [Scott] and his leadership, I am removing Florida from consideration for any new oil and gas platforms.”As NPR’s Richard Gonzales reported, “Zinke did not say whether he would meet with governors of other coastal states to hear their concerns or whether Interior officials had consulted with Scott before the announcement last week.”Seeking a similar exemption for California, the state’s attorney general, Xavier Becerra, used some of Zinke’s own words to tweet, “California is also ‘unique’ & our ‘coasts are heavily reliant on tourism as an economic driver.’ Our ‘local and state voice’ is firmly opposed to any and all offshore drilling.”.@SecretaryZinke: California is also “unique” & our “coasts are heavily reliant on tourism as an economic driver.” Our “local and state voice” is firmly opposed to any and all offshore drilling.If that’s your standard, we, too, should be removed from your list. Immediately. https://t.co/T6W6JaPCPh— Xavier Becerra (@AGBecerra) January 10, 2018Becerra added, “we, too, should be removed from your list. Immediately.”California experienced one of the worst oil spills in U.S. history in 1969, from an offshore drilling site near Santa Barbara, as member station KPCC notes.“No federal leases have been granted off the California coast since 1984,” KPCC writes, and new state leases have been banned for decades. Drilling has continued on older, pre-existing leases.“Today, 69 percent of Californians oppose offshore drilling,” KPCC reports.On the West Coast, the governors of Oregon and Washington signaled that they’d like to be “off the table,” too.Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine says Virginia’s governor and governor-elect have both asked for an exemption, unsuccessfully.Meanwhile, as Governing notes, it’s a little surprising that the Trump administration opted to make an exception for Florida — not just because of the backlash from other states but because of the potential profit in the eastern Gulf, right off Florida’s coast.Bloomberg explains:“The eastern Gulf of Mexico was believed to be the most tempting new prospect for oil companies in the expansive Trump administration draft, because it is close to existing pipelines and processing facilities — not to mention the refineries in Texas and Louisiana. … And the same geological trends that have yielded major oil discoveries in other parts of the Gulf could be replicated in its easternmost reaches.”You can read more about the federal policy on offshore drilling in Merrit’s story from last week.Copyright 2018 NPR.

HYDE Dresses as Harley Quinn for Halloween Concert Breaks Internet in J

first_img 11 Groundbreaking Female Comic Book ArtistsThe Greatest Romances in Comic Book History Halloween has taken off as a full-fledged party holiday in Japan, and while we all would like to think of the West as the masters of spooky, this is one of those times we must hang our heads in humbleness. Mega rock star HYDE debuted his Harley Quinn costume yesterday at his band VAMPS’ annual Halloween event in Tokyo, and the combination of what is happening here is enough to blow our minds.HYDE’s Harley Quinn selfie he posted to Instagram on October 22.First of all, HYDE is definitely a dude, and it’s awesome that he’s able to pull off a cute look like this as well. Infamous for his beautiful bishounen looks, HYDE has shamed all others who hope to pull off this cosplay.Second, HYDE is also 47 years old. 47!!! What the heck? I would like to hop onto that sparkling smooth skin train to eternal beauty town also, please!AdChoices广告HYDE posing with singer Aya Koshiro.Thirdly, it never ceases being bizarre to me that the Suicide Squad movie did pretty well in Japan, so much so that a rock god like HYDE would be putting in this much effort to cosplay one of its characters. Maybe something was lost, or found rather, in translation.Lastly, the internet sort of lost its shit after these photos were posted. Some funny responses to the photos posted on HYDE’s Instagram account and VAMPS’ Twitter are generally along the lines of, “That’s a 47-year-old man?,” “I guess I’ll quit being a woman. HYDE is doing it better, ” and “This is too perfect.”HYDE with Aki, bassist for the band SID.The photos have been up for just a day, and have already gotten thousands of likes and retweets.HYDE is known for his complicated cosplay and has previously dressed up as characters from Rozen Maiden, Mad Max, and Black Butler.HYDE showed off this bat he had personalized to wear with his costume to the his band VAMPS’  Halloween event.HYDE is most famous for his work as lead singer and songwriter of L’Arc-en-Ciel and founding the band Vamps with guitarist K.A.Z. As an accomplished winter, songwriter, producer, and actor who has performed in sold out shows across the world, we sort of feel like he could throw his hat in the ring to be a leg model, too.Basically perfection.

Pokemon Sword and Shield Introduce Big New Features

first_img If you’re still high on the artistic triumph that was the live-action movie Pokemon: Detective Pikachu, then you may have forgotten that there’s also a brand new exciting Pokemon video game coming later this year. And we aren’t talking about Pokemon Sleep.Discounting last year’s spin-off remakes Pokemon Let’s Go, the upcoming Pokemon Sword and Shield bring the next-generation core Pokemon RPG series to a home console, the Nintendo Switch, for the first time. And a new Pokemon Direct has just gifted us with tons of cool new details on what we can expect in the Galar Region (Pokemon England).Take a look!AdChoices广告The biggest new feature, literally, is the Dynamax ability. Seemingly the central new battle gimmick for this game, Dynamax allows Pokemon to temporarily take on giant glowing forms for impressive large-scale kaiju battles either in massive gym stadiums or out in the wild. In the wild trainers can also team up for co-op raid battles against Dynamax Pokemon, a feature that feels very inspired by Pokemon Go.For me though the cooler additions are the new “Wild Area” zones. These stretches of wilderness between the cities allow for more open exploration and it looks like Pokemon themselves are visible on the overworld. Even better? You can actually move the camera, a baby step towards making Pokemon the full-on open world RPG we all know it can be. Hopefully a future Pokemon game will be one big Wild Area, instead of confining it to certain locations.Of course, we also saw some new faces, humans and Pokemon alike. Your rival Hop is the younger brother of Pokemon champion Leon. And you’ll be aided by Professor Magnolia and her granddaughter Sonia. We already knew about starter Pokemon Grookey, Sobble, and Scorbunny. But now we know about snapping turtle Drednaw, crow taxi Corviknight, scared sheep Pokemon Wooloo, and flower Pokemon Gossifleur that involves into cotton-headed Eldegoss. We got a glimpse at the two new legendary Pokemon, too. Zacian and Zamazenta are both regal wolves, but Zacian has a sword in its mouth while Zamazenta has a shield for a beard.To be honest, as cool as Pokemon Sword and Shield look, their overall design still seems a bit conservative and iterative. Pokemon games have always done that, but I foolishly hoped that the move to a console would inspire Game Freak to take a bigger risk. Oh well. We still can’t wait to play these games when they launch on November 15.
