Addressing violent extremism urgent human rights priority warns UN chief

“That means addressing discrimination, ensuring good governance, and providing access to education, social services and employment opportunities,” UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in a video message to the UN Human Rights Council’s panel discussion held in Geneva, adding that “these steps can help strengthen trust between state institutions and the people they serve.”The event, convened during the Council’s current session, which runs through 24 March, examined measures to prevent or counter violent extremism from the human rights prism.“Human rights abuses by violent extremists directly assault the UN Charter and the Universal Declaration on Human Rights,” Mr. Ban said, noting that his new Plan of Action to Prevent Violent Extremism stresses that human rights and the rule of law should be central to countering or trying to prevent the scourge.Approaches that are morally wrong are also strategically counterproductive because they further alienate marginalized communities, the UN chief warned.Because violent extremist groups are acting with growing impunity, the fight against violent extremism must fully respects human rights, he said. Addressing violent extremism is “an urgent human rights priority,” he stressed, while underscoring the need to avoid the use of sweeping definitions of terrorism or violent extremism that encroach on human rights.“Full respect for human rights and accountability for wrongdoing are essential to heal broken societies and successfully counter the threat of violent extremists,” he concluded.Also delivering a statement was UN Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights Kate Gilmore, who said the Secretary-General’s Plan of Action is rights affirming, ambitious and far-reaching, and draws attention to the broader range of intersecting factors that underlie, foster and promote violent extremism.“Only with such a diagnosis can we begin then to devise the more effective prevention programmes that this multi-dimensional threat to human security demands of us,” she said.She stressed that responses to violent extremism that respect and protect human rights are more effective and sustainable. The “heavy-handed” counter-terrorism responses, following the 11 September terrorist attacks in the United States, have widened the rift between communities when bridges were needed, deepened distrust when investment in trust was called for, and generated divisive, often hateful, public discourse, she added.The selective application of the term “violent extremism” only to Muslim believers reinforces intolerance and discrimination, she warned.Ms. Gilmore also underscored equality and non-discrimination as the roots of a strong foundation for preventing and countering violent extremism. Policies and laws that combat social exclusion or marginalization are thus essential to the effective prevention and countering of violent extremism.Accountability for human rights violations is essential for enduring solutions to violent extremism, she said. Access to justice and remedies is crucial for the dignity of victims whether the abuse to which they have been subjected is at the hand of the State or a non-State actor.“The new more comprehensive plan of action for preventing or countering violent extremism is a welcome – and urgently needed – shift away from a ‘security-only’ approach,” she said.The Secretary-General presented his Plan of Action to the UN General Assembly on 15 January. It provides more than 70 recommendations to Member States and the UN system. On 12 February, the Assembly adopted a resolution welcoming the initiative. Further in the resolution, the 193-nation body took note of the Plan, saying that it “will give further consideration” to it. read more

Easing of blockade enables UN aid to enter Yemen but agencies say

“The situation in Yemen is currently the biggest humanitarian crisis in the world and aid is urgently required in order to avoid famine,” said Bettina Luescher, spokesperson for the World Food Programme (WFP), at a press briefing in Geneva.She said two daily flights to the Yemeni capital, Sana’a, from Jordan’s Amman and one from Djibouti will continue until the end of this month, and a WFP-chartered vessel carrying 25,000 metric tons of wheat grains, now docked at Saleef port, will be unloaded over the coming days. Ms. Luescher stressed that it is essential that commercial imports, which accounts for 90 per cent of the country’s food requirements, also be allowed in to Yemen, as the UN can not feed the entire population, and that continued access to Hudaydah and Saleef is especially vital as those ports are equipped with unloading, storage and milling facilities. WFP has more than doubled the number of people it reaches every month from 3.5 million people in January to a current average of seven million people. Due to the funding shortfall of $362 million, however, some people are only receiving half-rations. Alessandra Vellucci, spokesperson for the UN Information Service in Geneva, said fuel is urgently needed to operate generators for hospitals, water well pumps and sanitation units and to facilitate the trucking of drinking water and food to vulnerable people. Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) is largely focusing its efforts on the diphtheria outbreak. There have been 194 clinically suspected cases of diphtheria and 20 deaths in 13 governorates, said spokesperson Christian Lindmeier. He said that the outbreak is spreading faster than WHO anticipated. It can only be tackled if medicines, supplies and vaccinations are allowed to enter and move around the country. Mr. Lindmeier noted that a WHO team left Sana’a on Sunday and travelled to al-Sadah and Yarim districts in Ibb Governorate, where more than 80 per cent of the diphtheria cases have been reported, to collect samples and analyse them on the spot. Between Tuesday and Friday, the team will provide training for the rapid response team on the case management of diphtheria at local health centres in Ibb city. A diphtheria vaccination campaign targeting 300,000 children aged under 12 months began in remote areas on Saturday. Further vaccination rounds for priority districts for 940,000 children under 5 years of age and 2.3 million children and young adults are scheduled for December, he said. The lifting of the blockade on the movement of humanitarian goods will enable the shipping of 361 tons of medicines and medical supplies that have been blocked in Djibouti. The supplies to be shipped over the coming days include enough antitoxin to treat 1,000 cases of diphtheria. read more

Myanmar willing to repatriate verified returnees from Bangladesh

Some 900,000 mainly Rohingya refugees from Myanmar have sought shelter in the Cox’s Bazar region in south-eastern Bangladesh following military operations two years ago.Kyaw Tint Swe, Myanmar’s Union Minister for the Office of the State Counsellor, said repatriations would be carried out in line with a November 2017 agreement with Bangladesh.“Our priority now is to expedite repatriation and to create a more conducive environment for verified returnees,” he said, highlighting cooperation with Bangladesh, the UN and the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), among others.Qualified returnees to receive citizenship cardsMr. Swe said displaced people who had been living in Rakhine state “have a different legal status.”Those who qualify for citizenship will be issued with citizenship cards. The rest will receive National Verification Cards which he likened to the “green card” issued to immigrants in the United States.Mr. Swe said Government efforts to bring peace and stability to Rakhine state “predate the violent attacks by the ARSA (Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army) terrorist group in 2016 and 2017 that triggered off the current humanitarian crisis.”Some 300 people have already returned to Myanmar of their own volition “despite obstacles, including killings and threats by ARSA,” he said.The Minister dismissed demands to establish a “safe zone” in Myanmar as “neither warranted, nor workable.”He called on Bangladesh to faithfully implement the bilateral agreement, which he described as “the only feasible way to resolve the issue of the displaced persons.”Military investigation underwayRegarding accountability for the events in Rakhine state, Mr. Swe reported that a military investigation is currently underway.“A recent announcement suggests that there will soon be a court martial,” he added.Mr. Swe also addressed an International Criminal Court (ICC) request to authorize an investigation into alleged crimes in Rakhine State.However, he said “independent scholars have already identified the request is problematic in that it excludes alleged crimes committed by the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army, with deliberate omission of the undisputed fact that their actions precipitated the current displacement.”Other concerns cited include that the ICC Prosecutor “relies heavily on human rights reports” which contain “factual errors” on both national and international law.In Mr. Swe’s view, the ICC Prosecutor is focused on the outflow from Rakhine state yet remains “silent” on what he called “the broader picture” behind the displacement, as well as the various parties involved.“This silence widens the divide between the International Criminal Court and the people of Myanmar who have been made to feel that their concerns are of less import than the perceptions of influential nations and organizations acquainted but superficially with the true situation on the ground,” he said. read more

Student waste audit identifies coffee cup confusion

If the recent Tim Hortons Roll up the Rim contest taught us anything, it’s that the Brock community consumes massive quantities of coffee.But what happens to those hundreds of coffee cups purchased around campus every single day?As part of a research project in an Advanced Geochemistry class, students did a waste audit at three locations on the main Brock University campus. A report detailing the findings is being made for Facilities Management, but among the recommendations are the need for more organics bins across campus, and better signage to help avoid confusion over how coffee cups should be disposed of.The students collected more than 80 bags of waste from the Hungry Badger, Isaac’s Bar & Grill and Mackenzie Chown D-Block. The seven undergrad and three graduate students wanted to see how effective the University is at sorting its waste.It’s the type of experiential learning project that their teacher, Earth Sciences Professor Uwe Brand, has become known for.Students from the Advanced Geochemistry class collect garbage from the Hungry Badger for a waste audit research project.“It’s really interesting to take all these things we learned in the first few years and actually go out and use them,” said Madeline Becker, a fifth-year Environmental Geoscience student.“It’s not just a theory in front of you. You’re out there in the field doing research, being involved in every step of the process,” said fourth-year Environmental Geoscience student Hayden Polski.The students collected the contents of recycling (cans, bottles, plastics), paper, garbage and organics bins and then sorted to see what was being put into each.Of the total waste collected, 56 per cent was from paper bins, 24 per cent from garbage bins, 13 per cent from recycling bins and 7 per cent from organics bins.Overall, the student audit found that 76 per cent of garbage was being diverted, which is even better than the 68.5 per cent an official waste audit found in 2015.However, after sorting the waste, the students found that while paper and recycling was being disposed of fairly well, about half of what was dropped into garbage bins was compostable organics.“In some areas we’re doing well, but we could be doing better,” said fourth-year Earth Sciences student TJ Whibbs.Fourth-year Environmental Geoscience student Emily Ham said the incorrectly sorted waste is likely due to a combination of people not caring enough — “it’s kind of annoying to scrape out the food into organic bins,” she said — as well as a simple lack of organics bins.The other major issue the class identified was the confusion over coffee cups. Some signs show the cups as being recyclable with paper products, while other bins are specifically identified as being for coffee cups. Then there’s the issue of the Niagara Region not allowing coffee cups to be put into their organics bins.The students originally thought all coffee cups need to be put into garbage bins, because the Region doesn’t compost them, but Brock Facilities Management staff clarified the issue after learning about the students’ waste audit.“The students are correct, Niagara Region doesn’t have a recycling program for paper coffee cups, but the University does,” said Custodial and Ground Services Director Domenic Maniccia. “Due to the amount of liquids in our organic material, our organic waste hauler, Davidson Environmental, is able to mix in the paper cups with our organics.”Becker was happy to hear that news, but said more signs should be added around campus to clarify that, and more bins should be added.“The school could use more organic bins. There were tons of coffee cups improperly sorted in the garbage bins when we were looking through them, so there is still the issue of educating students and staff on the proper placement,” she said.Maniccia agreed, saying that coffee cups alone account for around 36 metric tonnes of waste each year, but only a small percentage of those are deposited into organic or coffee cup-specific bins for composting.“More organic bins would be useful in collecting not only coffee cups but organic food waste,” he said. read more

This clear speaker wants to bring sexy back to home audio

first_imgThe home speaker could use a refresh. Partly because of iPod docks, and partly because it gets the job done, the classic speaker has remained largely unchanged through the years. Connecting a smartphone or MP3 player to a supersized black box is awkward, yet few alternatives offer a better solution. Enter the transparent speaker: it’s an attractive, innovative, and environmentally-conscious — but ultimately handicapped — product that tries to breathe life into the speaker market.The clear speaker is made of four sheets of glass, a frame, and essential speaker components. Its opacity prevents it from becoming a boxy eyesore. It takes up the same physical space as classic speakers, but its occupied visual space is minimal:But this speaker is unique in ways other than aesthetics. It includes a WiFi transmitter, which can be plugged into any device with a headphone jack. Similarly to how FM transmitters broadcast audio in cars, the WiFi accessory will stream over your local network to the speaker. This allows your mobile device to play without being tethered by wires or a dock.The speaker ships in a small box, separate from the glass. The glass is ordered from local glassmakers; this is done to reduce shipping costs and support local craftspeople. After the audio components and glass arrive, the speaker is put together, “Ikea style.” The resulting product will have a long life, as the components most likely to break (the speaker cone and rubber ring) are easily replaced.As customers are used to ready-made products, the build-it-yourself element will make it hard for this speaker to move beyond the niche product classification. Ordering and picking up sheets of glass from a local shop will be the deal-breaker for many people.There is another catch to the clear speaker: it’s under development and currently unavailable. The developers haven’t announced a timeline or expected release date. You can read more and sign up for updates at the source link below.More at People Peoplelast_img read more

PC Case or Foosball Table Its Both

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Soccer (football) fans around the globe are anxiously awaiting the start of World Cup 2018. Tech fans, meanwhile, had their attention fixed on Computex this week.The proximity of the two events on this year’s calendar clearly some folks thinking. What can you take to the Computex show floor that appeals to both the World Cup crowd and computer enthusiasts?Why, a computer stuffed inside a foosball table, of course! That’s what MSI, Hong Kong-based Klevv, a manufacturer of DRAM and solid-state storage devices, and Taiwan’s I.I.D Maker Studio cooked up.As far as foosball tables go, this one is mostly standard-issue. It’s a 3-4-2 alignment of red vs. black players with a goalkeeper acting as the last line of defense on either end. There are a couple noteworthy differences, however.One is the translucent pitch. It’s suspended above the computing components, which, according to Engadget, include a pair of MSI mainboards equipped with Geforce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X graphics cards. Klevv kicked in 8 16GB sticks of RAM, a 460GB 2.5-inch SSD and a pair of 240GB M.2 SSDs.A Thermaltake watercooling rig keeps the systems’ temperature under control and there’s no shortage of LED illumination — some of which is backed into the Thermaltake-supplied Smart RGB power supply.Another high-tech touch is a series of six small, full-color displays mounted on the sides of the table. They appear to have been configured to show promotional images from the companies behind the build, close-up views of the hardware, and even a glimpse at the players as they compete for foosball dominance.Computex has a history of epic case mods, and this year was no different. Thermaltake and Klevv had several other builds on display. You can check them out in Cnet’s gallery along with a handful of other slick designs from other manufacturers.Image: Engadgetlast_img read more

Vancouver Energy offers to start terminal operations at half capacity

first_imgVancouver Energy said Friday it plans to begin operations at its proposed Port of Vancouver crude oil terminal at half capacity, due to public safety concerns.“We heard the concerns about safety and environmental protection raised through the Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council process. We are proposing being judged by our actual performance,” Vancouver Energy General Manager Jared Larrabee announced in a news release. “We offered to begin operations at 50 percent of the optimal throughput, and significantly, only allowing this throughput to increase after demonstrating the facility operates safely.” Vancouver Energy — a joint venture of Tesoro Corp. and Savage Cos. — wants to build the largest oil transfer terminal in the nation, capable of handling up to 360,000 barrels per day.The project was evaluated at quasi-judicial hearings held by the evaluation council in June and July. The council has yet to release its recommendation.On Thursday, Vancouver Energy submitted an updated application. Anna Gill, a spokeswoman for the evaluation council, said it should be available on the evaluation council’s website by Monday.last_img read more

The alert recommends monitoring local media for updates and exercising caution if in the vicinity of a demonstration.In a statement to The Tico Times, Information Officer Hakim Hasan said the alert is a routine process, not meant to raise alarm but to help tourists prepare for their travel.“We have complete confidence in our Costa Rican colleagues’ ability to manage the situation,” he said. “We obviously want tourists who are visiting Costa Rica — or anywhere in the world — to understand some of the challenges that might exist in an environment like this, when there’s a strike.”But many Costa Ricans fear damage has already been done to the country’s international reputation as a tourist destination.“Imagine being in another country and hearing there’s a strike,” Calderón Brenes said. “Do you think they’re going to return to their country and recommend Costa Rica?” Facebook Comments The strike that has been gripping Costa Rica since Sept. 10 has begun taking its toll on one of the nation’s biggest industries: tourism.Several small business owners throughout Costa Rica are struggling through a September with less income than usual, even for an off-peak tourism month. They say the protests — which have blocked major highways — have caused an uptick in cancelations, threatening narrow profit margins.Javier Pacheco, vice president of Costa Rica’s National Chamber of Tourism (Canatur) told the daily La Nación travel agencies have suffered a 50 percent drop in reservations due to the strikes.Those disruptions are raising alarm from business owners who have seen revenue streams dwindle.“What are you going to tell the tourist: That they should come back in 15 days, when there isn’t a strike?” said Marlon Calderón Brenes, owner of Bijagua Rainforest Tours near Tenorio Volcano National Park in northern Costa Rica.Calderón Brenes says both of his scheduled tours last week canceled, affecting not only his company but the families that prepare food for visitors and own the boats he uses.Also in Bijagua, the Hotel Cacao Río Celeste remained empty this week after a 14-person, two-night reservation canceled.“If you don’t know if it will take three-and-a-half hours or twelve hours to drive here, you’re not going to come,” said its owner, Leda Arguello Cruz.center_img Costa Rican government seeks agreement with unions to end strike Rafaél Sanchez, manager of Bahía Aventuras in Uvita, on the southern Pacific coast, is thankful to have received just six cancelations since the strikes began. But he knows he has been fortunate.During the annual Whale and Dolphin festival, held earlier this month, Sanchez and other residents in Uvita noticed significantly smaller crowds than they expected. Rigoberto Vargas Navarro, president of the Association of Tour Operators at the Marina Ballena National Park, told The Tico Times he estimates around 1,500 fewer people came to this year’s festival compared to in 2017.“We think that’s a result of the strikes,” Vargas Navarro said. “That affects us a lot.”Costa Rica’s international airports have remained fully operational, but protesters have obstructed highways in Puntarenas, Guanacaste, and Limón. Earlier this week, Celebrity Cruises, whose ocean liner Infinity had a scheduled stop in Puntarenas, announced the ship would skip the call due to the strikes.Fifty kilometers south of Uvita, in Sierpe, one prominent business owner estimates that at minimum, 15 percent fewer people have visited the area this year. Jorge Uribe, who manages La Perla del Sur, says several people who have contacted him in recent weeks have chosen not to make reservations with the company after learning of local roadblocks.“It’s worrisome for the entire region,” he said.Thousands of citizens have been marching in San José and across Costa Rica this month against a proposed tax reform, which they say would have an unfair impact on the working class. Those demonstrations have generally remained peaceful, but they have routinely blocked major highways across the country. Others have impeded access to Costa Rican Petroleum Refinery (Recope) sites, causing occasional fuel shortages.According to the Costa Rican Institute of Tourism (ICT), the industry comprises 6.7 percent of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product. In a statement this week, María Amalia Revelo, the Minister of Tourism, acknowledged the impact strikes have had on local tourism.“I call on the protesters to exercise sanity and calm,” Amalia Revelo said in the statement. “The defense of the rights of some cannot cause the abuse of the rights of the rest of the population, affecting public services and the free movement of citizens and tourists who chose Costa Rica, out of dozens of options, as the destination to enjoy their holidays.”Unions and the government have started talks to end the strike, but the indefinite end has caused mounting concern for business owners.last_img read more

first_img by David Bauder, The Associated Press Posted Mar 21, 2018 7:08 am PDT Last Updated Mar 21, 2018 at 7:40 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – On its face, PBS has a huge challenge in promoting filmmaker Helen Whitney’s upcoming documentary on facing mortality. Most people want to avoid the subject of death, not see a two-hour film about it.Watching “Into the Night: Portraits of Life and Death” makes clear that it’s a lot more about life.The film, which premieres on March 26 at 9 p.m. EDT, features interviews with several thoughtful people for whom death is more than an abstraction. They include an historian whose attitude is changed by a youthful near-death experience, a man with terminal cancer who builds his own coffin, a former Islamic radical who questioned his beliefs about immortality while in solitary confinement, a pastor who struggles to regain faith after the deaths of two sons.There’s also a filmmaker who doesn’t want to confront the fact that her best friend is dying. That would be Whitney.“What is it that you most fear?” Whitney said. “I don’t think that people have these conversations. I don’t think they do until the last minutes. It’s not just about being brave at the end. It’s about how you live your life now.”Whitney’s parents died within three months of each other when she was 12, and she said that influenced many of the choices she made in a film career that has stretched beyond 40 years. She’s taken a special interest in spiritual matters, with projects on how the 2001 terrorist attacks affected people’s religious beliefs, the concept of forgiveness, Mormons and Pope John Paul II.With “Into the Night,” she wanted to have those conversations. After all, her film says, “there is nothing that we will ever do that feels so alone as dying.” The film is framed by actor Gabriel Byrne reciting Dylan Thomas’ famous poem, “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night,” to show that when the time comes, some do and some don’t.Caitlin Doughty’s life changed in fourth grade, when she witnessed a young girl fall off an escalator to her death at a shopping centre. It stuck with her, and she eventually became a mortician and a leader in the death salon movement, where people gather to talk about mortality. “Death happens and it can be messy and it can be gross, but it can also be beautiful,” she says.Phyllis Tickle, the historian who was terminally ill when she talked with Whitney, nearly died in childbirth as a young woman. She had the sensation of moving toward a light and a voice asking if she were ready and she said, no, that she wanted to raise a family with her new husband. She survived. Tickle said she’s aware some people doubt such near-death experiences, considering them some neurological trickery; her husband was among them and didn’t want to talk about it. The film takes no side in the debate.What the experience did was leave her utterly unafraid of death, which she jokingly hoped would come while sitting on her deck with a bottle of Jack Daniel’s in front of her.“Once the fear of death goes,” she says, “you can’t be afraid of life. You’re a different person.”Tickle died a few months after speaking to Whitney, as did Jeffrey Piehler, a surgeon with prostate cancer. Together with a friend who was a carpenter, he built his own coffin, a task his family found morbid. Piehler found impending death liberating, enabling him to see “life in Technicolor,” let loose of destructive emotions and enjoy his family.As Whitney searched for people to talk to and conducted interviews for the film, she worked as usual with Ted Winterburn. Technically her film editor, Winterburn was a partner who helped shape the direction of Whitney’s projects. But at 80 years old, Winterburn was dying himself of prostate cancer. It was a subject that largely went unspoken between the two.“I didn’t make it easy for us to talk about because at some level I was not accepting the fact that he was going to die,” Whitney said. “The irony did not escape me.”Winterburn approached her, and said it was time to talk about it, if only because she would soon need to find a new editor. That led to some of the best discussions they ever had as friends, and an interview she conducted with him ends “Into the Night.”Proud as she is of the work, Whitney is well aware that it was a tough sell for distributors and viewers. PBS stepped up. Beth Hoppe, former programming chief for the public television service, said she recognized the film was important and that PBS had a role to occasionally be an outlet for projects that would otherwise have difficulty finding a home. She compared it to the 1983 film about childbirth, “The Miracle of Life,” of which DVD copies are still being offered for sale by PBS.“Once people start to contemplate this, it will have a long life,” said Hoppe, who now works at ABC News.To potential viewers, Whitney has a simple message: Don’t be scared.“I think it will give people an urgency to their lives not to push off the meaningful conversations, to forgive another person or make amends, to not put off something you have a passion to do,” she said. “Think, ‘what is my story, what is the importance of my life.’ Drill down on that, so that when the moment does come, you’re not filled with regrets.’” PBS film forces viewers to confront mortalitylast_img read more
