Northern PC polls in September 2013

Mr. Rajapaksa refused to accept that the Indian vote against Sri Lanka in the United Nations Human Rights Council was because Colombo did not implement the promises it made to the Council in 2009. Insisting that his government had worked on all the promises that were delivered and was serious about fulfilling all undertakings that were given, he said he had even said that he was willing to go beyond the 13th Amendment.Clarifying for the first time what the plus was, Mr. Rajapaksa said this was the creation of a Senate. “I said 13th Amendment plus. Then Shankar [Shiv Shankar Menon, Indian National Security Adviser] remarked if I meant the creation of a Senate, and I said yes.”Mr. Menon had met Mr. Rajapaksa on June 29 on post-Geneva issues. India is the chair for the Universal Periodic Review at the UNHRC that comes up in November. The second issue was the completion of the rehabilitation and resettlement process. This was on with international support and was expected to be completed soon. Livelihood issues too were being addressed. Elections to Sri Lanka’s northern provincial council will take just over a year from now. “We want to hold elections in September 2013,” President Mahinda Rajapaksa told The Hindu. “We are working towards it [the elections] in a systematic manner.”In an interaction at his official residence, Temple Trees, here, Mr. Rajapaksa said there were many issues to be resolved ahead of holding of elections. The primary one related to the electoral rolls. People who fled when the Tamil Tigers were in power and during the war were still coming in and staking claim to their land and property after the defeat of the Tamil Tigers in May 2009. These people too had to be accommodated in the rolls. The last rolls were more than 30 years old and had no relation to the current eligible voters in the province. Mr. Rajapaksa made it clear that the creation of a Senate and the fleshing out of a solution needed to come from Parliament. “This is [where] the Parliamentary Select Committee is important,” he said The holding of elections hold the key to moving forward on the question of granting Tamils the political space they lacked. In fact, this should have been possible soon after the India-Sri Lanka accord of 1987 (later called the 13th Amendment because the Sri Lankan Constitution was subsequently amended to include this provision), which also had a clause on devolution of powers. Ironically, the amendment benefitted all the other regions — albeit in a very limited manner — and all the provinces, barring the North, had a provincial council.On the issue of glaring visibility of the Army in all walks of life, Mr. Rajapaksa said he had instructed that the Army should be visible only when required. When The Hindu brought to his notice the plight of five fishermen from Tamil Nadu, who were being held in a Jaffna prison since November 28, 2011, he said he would first ascertain the facts of the case. He had called the Inspector General of Police and received an update on the issue. (The Hindu) read more

UN family honours terror victims one month after Baghdad bombing

“They form a roll call of heroes that would be the envy of any nation,” Secretary-General Kofi Annan declared, standing beneath the very flag – now damaged – that had flown above the UN compound in Iraq on 19 August when the massive blast killed 22 people, including top envoy Sergio Vieira de Mello. “If people need an example of our United Nations family at its best and brightest, at its most committed and most courageous, they have only to look at the men and women who perished in the Canal Hotel,” he added as family members and others in the audience wiped away tears.”When we lost them, our Organization also suffered another loss, of a different kind: a loss of innocence for the United Nations,” he said after paying homage by name to each of the victims. “We, who had assumed that our mission to help others served as its own and ultimate form of protection, now find ourselves threatened and exposed. We, who have tried from the beginning to serve those targeted by violence and destruction, have become targets ourselves.” But despite the new need to balance the mission to help others with the needs of self-protection, “our commitment – our pledge in the name of ‘we the peoples’ – must never change,” Mr. Annan concluded. “Today, let us renew that commitment in the name of our irreplaceable, inimitable, unforgettable friends. Let us work to heal these unhealable wounds, by working every day to live up to the standard they set us.” After a minute of silence and musical tribute from a cellist, members of the bereaved families in turn moved forward to light a candle in memory of each of the victims.Poems were read in homage. Then the flag from that August afternoon was lowered by the honour guard from above the tribune – sullied, dirtied, holed, revered as a symbol of UN heroism.Video of memorial ceremony read more

Every McDonalds Will Use Sustainable Packaging By 2025

first_img KFC Tests Plant-Based Beyond Fried Chicken in AtlantaMinneapolis Bans Construction of New Drive-Thrus McDonald’s is the world’s largest toy distributor. They also sell a fair amount of fast food, and they use a lot of packaging to serve that food to their customers. That’s why it’s so good to hear that the company is committing to going 100% sustainable.That won’t happen overnight, of course. McDonald’s plans to complete the push by 2025. That might seem like a long time — heck, it is a long time — but we’re talking about nearly 37,000 locations serving 70 million customers a year in 120 different countries.There will be plenty of logistical hurdles to overcome along the way. It won’t be as easy to source eco-friendly materials they need in some countries as it might be in the U.S. or U.K., for example. McDonald’s has acknowledged that, saying “regulations and consumer behaviors vary city to city and country to country,” adding that they”plan to be part of the solution and help influence powerful change.”The chain has been trending in a sustainable direction for quite some time now. Years ago, McDonald’s teamed up with the Environmental Defense Fund to reduce packaging and waste. The project was a huge success. The EDF celebrated the 300 million pound reduction in waste and 1 million tons of corrugated cardboard recycled and McDonald’s got a big PR win and raked in a cool $6 million in annual savings.Back in 2014, McDonald’s committed to using only FSC-certified or recycled sources for their fiber-based packaging. Two years ago, they were already at around 64% of their goal. They’re on track to hit 100% by 2020.Another important milestone the company has slated for this year: the complete elimination of foam from its packaging. McDonald’s says that only about 2% of the packaging they use right now is foam, but on a McDonald’s scale that’s still a huge amount of foam being used in day-to-day operations.

Pellegrini unsure how long Wilshere will be out of action

Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“Is it more serious than first thought?” Maybe, because when he felt the pain it was in his ‘good’ ankle – it was not the ankle where he had the surgery,” said Pellegrini, according to Daily Mirror.“We hoped it was just a pain and that he could adjust for two or three days but for different things it has been longer than we expected.“It is very difficult to know. Maybe the doctor can answer better than me – on Wednesday he did a medical examination and when we get the results we will know.”Wilshere has made just five appearances for West Ham this season after arriving on a free transfer from Arsenal in the summer.last_img read more

PM welcomes ICC decision of probing atrocities on Rohingyas

first_imgInternational Criminal Court (ICC) chief prosecutor Fatu Bensouda calls on prime minister Sheikh Hasina in Munich, Germany Friday. Photo: PIDPrime minister Sheikh Hasina on Friday welcomed the decision of the International Criminal Court (ICC) to send a team for ‘preliminary examination’ of the atrocities on Rohingyas by Myanmar Army, reports BSS.She assured the ICC to give all possible support to the team which is scheduled to visit Bangladesh next month, foreign secretary Shahidul Haque said while briefing newsmen following a meeting of the prime minister with ICC chief prosecutor Fatu Bensouda on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference in Munich, Germany.“The prime minister in principle welcomed the ICC team which will visit Bangladesh at the beginning of March and assured them of giving all support in this regard,” the foreign secretary said.The prime minister’s press secretary Ihsanul Karim was present in the briefing.Haque said the prime minister and the ICC chief prosecutor discussed the issues relating to the trial of genocide of Pakistani Army in Bangladesh in 1971 and atrocities on Rohingya nationals in Myanmar.He said prime minister Sheikh Hasina laid importance on bringing the perpetrators of the genocide of Pakistani Army in Bangladesh in 1971 to book.About the trial of atrocities on Rohingyas, Fatu said the ICC has already brought the Rohingya issue under its jurisdiction and set up a court for trial of the perpetrators.He said the ICC team will visit Bangladesh to have the ‘preliminary examination’ aimed at establishing the case.The prime minister also underlined the background of the killing of Bangabandhu and his family members in 1975 and informed the ICC chief prosecutor about the trial process of the killers.Fatu, a national of Gambia and international lawyer, said she knows about the brutal killing of Bangabandhu.The ICC chief prosecutor requested the prime minister to visit the ICC to speak to the judges on the issue of the trial of the 1971 genocide.Fatu thanked the prime minister for playing a pioneering role in the ICC. “Bangladesh Ambassador is actively playing role in various committees in the ICC,” she said.The ICC is a new area where Bangladesh is being involved very actively in recent time, the foreign secretary said.Earlier executive director of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons Nobel laureate Batrice Fihn called on prime minister Sheikh Hasina.Fihn thanked the prime minister for Bangladesh’s firm stance on nuclear weapons abolition issue and appreciated Bangladesh as the country since Bangabandhu’s era in 1974 has been making constant efforts to make South Asia a nuclear free zone.last_img read more

In St Louis Grill to Glory deploys churches and hot dogs for

first_img News • Photos of the Week Share This! Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,Arlene Mckenzie, left, handles the cooking at a barbecue hosted by her church, Christ’s Southern Mission Baptist, on May 18, 2019, in North St. Louis. RNS photo by Eric Berger(RNS) — James Clark has a perfect recipe for getting to know your neighbors.Set up a grill.Light some charcoal.And put on some hot dogs.On a recent Saturday afternoon, Clark, vice president of community outreach at the nonprofit Better Family Life, was offering hot dogs to passers-by at Christ’s Southern Mission Baptist Church in North St. Louis.Even the mailman dropped by to see what was going on. He joked that he planned to stop by for hot dogs at five other churches having similar cookouts for neighbors that day.“That’s what I am talking about,” Clark responded and laughed.The cookouts are part of “Grill to Glory” — a partnership between local churches and Better Family Life to build community in North St. Louis, an area plagued by violent crime.RELATED: Overcoming fears of ‘making noise,’ US Muslims step into civic lifeIn 2016, almost 70% of the homicides in St. Louis occurred in North St. Louis, according to an analysis of St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department data done by the news organization The Trace and the Missouri School of Journalism.That chaos creates a sense of hopelessness among people who live in that area, Clark said. And he thinks churches are the institutions best positioned to host barbecues and in doing so, change the psyche of residents who might otherwise be drawn to crime.“It becomes a neighborhood magnet and conversations begin. Members of the church are there, and they are not aggressively trying to push the Bible. They are just saying, ‘We are the church. We’re here. Come fellowship with us. And if you are free tomorrow morning, why don’t you come to service?’” Clark explained.Grill to Glory aims to bond North St. Louis through community outreach and fellowship. Photo by StockSnap/Creative CommonsSo far, Cook has helped organize events at more than 60 churches around North St. Louis.Grill to Glory is an offshoot of Better Family Life’s “neighborhood opioid triage,” in which the group tries to help addicts in open-air drug markets by handing out toiletries and Narcan (used to revive someone who is overdosing from opioids), offering to take them to treatment centers and grilling hot dogs.At one such drug market near a liquor store on North Grand Boulevard, police were called “104 times in a 12-month period for assaults, shootings, drug use, fights and unruly behavior,” the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported in March 2018. Crime analysts and community leaders have linked the growth of such drug markets to increased gun violence in recent years.In January 2018, Leonard Missionary Baptist Church, located near a drug market, started to hold barbecues on Saturdays.Some 60 guests would come each week, Clark said.After seeing the growth, he thought, “what would happen to the neighborhood if we could get the collective church body to buy into this model? And it’s low-hanging fruit. The ask of the church is relatively small.”So on May 4, Better Family Life, which is not a religious organization, launched the program.The group has received a few $1,000 donations and has spent about $3,500 so far on grills, lighter fluid, charcoal and food items, said Clark. It’s also asked the churches to contribute supplies such as tables and tents.Grill to Glory organizer James Clark, right, is greeted while visiting different church barbecue sites on May 18, 2019, in North St. Louis. RNS photo by Eric BergerClark, who has worked for Better Family Life since 1997, received the 2018 Nonprofit Executive of the Year Award from the St. Louis American Foundation, which runs the newspaper that covers the local African-American community. President Trump met Clark at a national conference and thanked him for his efforts to reduce violence.Around 11 a.m. on May 18, Clark and BJ the DJ, the assistant program director for iHeartRadio’s local hip-hop, R&B and gospel radio stations, left the Better Family Life headquarters in North St. Louis with the goal of stopping at as many barbecues as possible.BJ had been promoting the effort on his morning show on Hallelujah (1600 AM).“James and I talked about it, and we saw that the churches were not connected to the community,” said BJ, who has invited clergy to talk about the program on air.“A lot of times you go past the church and you don’t see any activities,” he said. “It’s like they are there but they are not there.”At the first stop, Christ’s Southern Mission Baptist Church, Arlene Mckenzie stood over the grill; she’s the church’s culinary specialist.She’s 63 years old and started attending the church as a young child. She now lives three houses down.“My heart is for feeding the people. I pass out food up and down the neighborhood, and it’s just a vision of mine. I believe it’s really coming true,” she added.Another longtime church member, Deborah Mason, said she thinks this is one of the church’s first such efforts since it moved into the neighborhood in 1960.“People want to know that you care, especially the church. If we are supposed to be models of Christ — that’s what he did. He got up with the people. He was a party animal,” said Mason.Cheryl Collins, right, chats with fellow attendees at Emmanuel Missionary Baptist Church’s Grill to Glory event on May 18, 2019, in North St. Louis. RNS photo by Eric BergerAt the next stop on Clark’s hop, Cheryl Collins, a member of Emmanuel Missionary Baptist Church, offered a hot dog to a young man walking by. He declined.“How about a prayer?” Collins said.He stopped and came over.Church members were all smiles as they embraced Clark and BJ the DJ. Clark hopes to enlist 112 churches around North St. Louis.“I’m having a ball, man,” said one church member. “This is where it’s at.”Ike Ghee, a homeless 70-year-old man, said he was unable to bring anything to the barbecue — the church already had the necessary supplies — but wanted to participate.“I had a divorce and things kinda turned but I’m still God’s child,” he said. “He’s showing me that he’s still here.” Tagsbarbecue crime faith outreach grilling homepage featured racial reconciliation religion and food St. Louis,You may also like Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email Vanier is gone, but his Christian model for living alongside the disabled takes root Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email Catholicism By: Eric Berger By: Eric Berger Share This!

Facebook Google and Twitter Agree to German Ban on Online Hate Speech

first_img Register Now » 2 min read This story originally appeared on Reuters December 16, 2015 Germany said on Tuesday that Facebook, Google and Twitter have agreed to delete hate speech from their websites within 24 hours, a new step in the fight against rising online racism following the refugee crisis.The government has been trying to get social platforms to crack down on the rise in anti-foreigner comments in German on the web as the country struggles to cope with an influx of more than 1 million refugees this year.The new agreement makes it easier for users and anti-racism groups to report hate speech to specialist teams at the three companies, German Justice Minister Heiko Maas said.”When the limits of free speech are trespassed, when it is about criminal expressions, sedition, incitement to carry out criminal offences that threaten people, such content has to be deleted from the net,” Maas said. “And we agree that as a rule this should be possible within 24 hours.”Germany last month launched an investigation into the European head of Facebook over its alleged failure to remove racist hate speech.Martin Ott, Facebook’s managing director for northern, central and eastern Europe based in Hamburg, may be held responsible for the social platform’s failure to remove hate speech, a spokeswoman for the prosecution said last month.A Facebook spokesperson said the allegations lack merit and there has been no violation of German law by Facebook or its employees.Facebook has a partnership with a group called FSM, which monitors multimedia service providers on a voluntary basis, and has said it would encourage its users to push back against racism.Vandals attacked its offices in the northern city of Hamburg at the weekend, damaging the entrance to the building and spraying “Facebook dislike” on a wall.(Reporting by Oliver Ellrodt; Writing by Joseph Nasr) Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.

Thunderbirds new home is The Mozilla Foundation

first_imgThunderbird’s new home is.. The Mozilla Foundation by Martin Brinkmann on May 09, 2017 in Email – Last Update: May 22, 2018 – 31 commentsWhat’s going to happen to the Thunderbird email client? This was one question that most users of the desktop program asked themselves when it was revealed that Mozilla wanted to drop the program.Mozilla’s intention in cutting the ties to Thunderbird were mostly caused by a desire to free up resources, and to avoid having to make sure Firefox changes don’t impact Thunderbird in a problematic way.Thunderbird’s future was cloudy back then when the Thunderbird Council began talks with various organizations that could become the new home for the project.Among the candidates were the Software Freedom Conservancy (SFC), the Document Foundation (TDF), and also a new deal with Mozilla Foundation. The council rejected the idea to establish an independent Thunderbird Foundation at the time as the first step.The reason why SFC and TDF were not picked as Thunderbird’s new home is pointed out in the official blog post:Legally our existence is still under the Mozilla Foundation through their ownership of the trademark, and their control of the update path and websites that we use. This arrangement has been working well from Thunderbird’s point of view. But there are still pain points – build/release, localization, and divergent plans with respect to add-ons, to name a few. These are pain points for both Thunderbird and Firefox, and we obviously want them resolved. However, the Council feels these pain points would not be addressed by moving to TDF or SFC.The Council managed to generate revenue by collecting donations, and has also made the first steps to migrate the infrastructure. This lead to an interesting revelation: while Mozilla wants to cut the ties to Thunderbird to improve and focus on Firefox development, it also wants the email client to do well, and does not really mind keeping it close under its own umbrella.While Mozilla wants to be laser-focused on the success of Firefox, in recent discussions it was clear that they continue to have a strong desire to see Thunderbird succeed. In many ways, there is more need for independent and secure email than ever. As long as Thunderbird doesn’t slow down the progress of Firefox, there seems to be no significant obstacles for continued co-existence.Philipp Kewisch announced today on the official Mozilla Thunderbird website that the new home of the Thunderbird project is its old home. While that sounds like a surprising turn of events at first, things won’t be as they were when Mitchell Baker made the announcement back in 2015.To continue being Thunderbird’s home for the foreseeable future, the following is required of the Thunderbird Council:The Thunderbird Council and Mozilla Foundation “maintain a good working relationship and make decisions in a timely manner”.The Thunderbird team makes “meaningful progress in short order on operational and technical independence from Mozilla Corporation”.Both sides are allowed to give the other a six months notice if they wish “to discontinue the Mozilla Foundation’s role as the legal and fiscal host of the Thunderbird project”.Basically, what this means is that Mozilla is giving the Thunderbird project team time to become fully independent. This means, among other things, that the Thunderbird Council is responsible for all operations and the infrastructure.As far as the future of Thunderbird is concerned, the following was noted:Thunderbird will continue to rely on the Gecko engine in midterm.The long term plan is to migrate the code to web technologies.Now You: What’s your take on this development?SummaryArticle NameThunderbird’s new home is.. The Mozilla FoundationDescriptionThe Thunderbird Council just announced on the official blog that the new home for the project will be its old at the Mozilla Foundation.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Top Stories

first_img Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires During training camp, Arizona Cardinals offensive lineman Cole Toner will join Doug and Wolf every morning on 98.7 FM, Arizona’s Sports Station, to give an inside look at the daily grind of camp and a personal view of how his 2017 preparation is coming along.When fans attend open Arizona Cardinals training camp practices at University of Phoenix Stadium, they’re hoping the team is in full pads because it’s a little closer to real football. “For the most part, they’re right about stuff. You just kind of go with it. If you see yourself up there, take your ‘L’ and move on.” Your browser does not support the audio element. The players, especially in the fourth week of camp, don’t share that mindset.A full-padded practice is on tap for Wednesday afternoon in Glendale and the reason is clear.“We didn’t practice well enough (Tuesday),” Cole Toner said Wednesday morning in relaying the message from head coach Bruce Arians. “We’ve got to find a way to practice better and we’re doing that in full pads until we do.”Toner called that development “discouraging,” but somewhat expected, given the amount of mental errors the team has accumulated.“On the sheet last night, there was a good amount of M.E.’s,” he said. “I actually didn’t find myself up there, which is good for me.”The accountability board is a grading tool used by the Arizona coaching staff. Not only does it send a message to the player about errors, but it does so in a very public way. Toner intimated that the board works.“There’s no doing anything about it,” he said. “You see yourself, you try to get better. The coaches have control of who they put on there and who they don’t. Sometimes they’ll miss stuff. Usually, they catch it. Sometimes coaches will tell you to do something and you’re on there and you try to get it right.
