The Government says while it is against homosexuality the authorities will not prosecute anyone for practising it.Cabinet has rejected a proposal to end discrimination based on sexual orientation because it could legitimise homosexuality, which is illegal on the island. Sri Lanka’s 1883 penal code, a legacy of its British colonial rulers, makes sex between men punishable by 12 years in jail, although the law is rarely enforced. Health minister Rajitha Senaratne said the cabinet had refused to endorse a provision in a proposed human rights plan that would have undermined the code, the AFP news agency reported. “There was a provision referring to the sexual orientation of individuals and we clearly said it was not acceptable,” said Senaratne, who is also the government spokesman.“The government is against homosexuality, but we will not prosecute anyone for practising it,” the minister said, adding that the island’s conservative Buddhist clergy was also opposed to the provision. Rights activists say although there have been no known prosecutions in recent decades, Article 365 of the penal code is discriminatory and stigmatises homosexuality. They also argue that it has led to the abuse of gay people. (Colombo Gazette) He said the proposed National Human Rights Action Plan included a provision to remove “discrimination based on sexual orientation”.“People could interpret this (rights plan) in their favour,” the minister said, adding that the government did not want to create “social problems” by inviting a challenge to the law.Following intense campaigning by a gay rights group in 1995, the then government agreed to review the penal code that prohibited sex between men. But rather than repeal the law, they expanded it to include women. read more

Cuba’s president Miguel Diaz-Canel. (Photo: AFP)HAVANA, Cuba (AFP) — Cuba’s National Assembly on Sunday adopted a new constitution that would recognize market economics yet keep the Communist Party firmly in control of the economy and the ship of state.It will be voted on in a national referendum later this year.“After it’s put to discussion and voted on, Cubans will be more united in their defence of the revolution,” said President Miguel Diaz-Canel, wrapping up the two-day session.The president underscored that “every Cuban can freely express his or her opinions… on a constitutional text reflecting the present and future of the nation.”Yet those opinions can’t be voiced in a multiparty system. Article 224 reaffirms the socialist character of the Cuban political system, and the “guiding role of the one and only Communist Party.”On the economic front, Cubans are reassured that “property is socialist and belongs to all people, while the economy is state-led.”Ideologically, the constitution does drop a text saying that its goal was achieving a Communist society.Cash-strapped Cuba has been under a US embargo for over four decades. Its main economic partner is now crisis-plagued Venezuela.So Havana — short on food, fuel and locally made goods — is keen to get new partners to take a chance on investing in the Caribbean nation of 11 million, even though it staunchly opposes too much concentration of wealth in too few hands domestically.The constitution recognises private property and the market economy, as well as encourages foreign investments. But capitalism as known around the world remains a dirty word.

Saxby Chambliss (R) praised the Georgia lawmakers for taking action to safeguard the state’s military installations. He said he did not recall state legislators getting involved in the two rounds of base closure he experienced while in Congress, reported the Telegraph.“You being here today sends a great message,” he said. “You are interested and you do care about the entire state and the section of the state that you represent.”Chambliss told the committee its task to get ready for the next BRAC round is urgent. “It’s coming,” he said. “And it’s coming sooner rather than later. … There’s an awful lot of excess capacity out there, and there’s going to have to be a downsizing.”Ron Smith, former commander of the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center, described the primary qualities of communities that have been successful in preserving their bases. “I think there’s a couple of attributes of those communities and states that do this extremely well,” Smith said. “One is, they are really, really passionate about their bases. They are very, very vocal and energetic about their bases. They are very inquisitive about what’s going on at their bases, how to improve their bases and how to get missions.”The committee is expected to issue recommendations before the end of the year.

first_img Advertisement He thinks the Rams could be one of the most improved teams in the NFL this year after hiring offensive wunderkind Sean McVay, and making significant upgrades to their offensive personnel. All should help Jared Goff’s development in his second year. Colin thinks the Rams will be one of the most improved teams in the NFL, and could double their win total from 4 to 8 this year.While many are predicting the Cowboys will continue to trend upward after a surprise 13 win season last year, Colin thinks they’ll regress. The main reason is one of the toughest schedules in the league, including facing the tough AFC West out of conference, and finishing the year with Washington, New York, Oakland, Seattle and Philly.The end result? The Cowboys will only finish 1 or 2 wins better than the L.A.“The gap was 9 wins last year, and the Cowboys and Rams will only have a 1 or 2 game gap this year.” The Rams and the Cowboys finished 2016 heading in polar opposite directions.The Rams’ first season in Los Angeles was a 4-12 disappointment, marked by a malfunctioning offense, a brutal rookie year for #1 overall pick Jared Goff, and the firing of head coach Jeff Fisher following a 42-14 loss against the Falcons.The Cowboys, on the other hand, finished 13-3, found their franchise quarterback in Dak Prescott, a franchise running back in Ezekiel Elliott, and came within a miracle completion by Aaron Rodgers from playing in the NFC Championship Game.Even though the franchises appear to be trending in opposite directions, and the Cowboys won 9 more games than the Rams last year, today in The Herd Colin made the bold prediction that Dallas will only win 1 or 2 more games than L.A. in 2017.center_img Watch Colin explain why the Rams and Cowboys will end the year with similar win totals:The first NFL prediction of 2017 courtesy of @ColinCowherd pic.twitter.com/LsUgvqepwi— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) June 29, 2017last_img read more

Now the global beauty brand is pulling out the latest, greatest, high-tech guns in the age-old war on wrinkles: 3-D printers that make real human skin.L’Oréal USA, the largest arm of the French cosmetics company, recently announced that it is teaming up with a San Diego-based bioprinting startup called Organovo Holdings to print actual skin tissue.Related: Skin and Bones: Oh, the Body Parts You Can Make With 3-D Bio-printersNot only will the new partnership mean gobs more man-made skin for L’Oréal to experiment with, it will also accelerate its shift away from testing cosmetics and other products on animals, reports The Washington Post. Rejoice, mice everywhere.Dabbling in skin replication in the lab is nothing new to 106-year-old L’Oréal. In its endless pursuit of the Fountain of Youth, the company has researched reconstructed skin for the past three decades, growing thousands of human skin specimens in a “human skin factory,” though never via 3-D bioprinters before. Now, it’s looking to Organovo — which has worked with Merck to successfully 3-D print multicellular human liver and kidney tissues — to further improve how it tests its products for safety and performance, and maybe eventually much more.Related: This Smart Skin-Scanning App Could Save Your LifeHere, you can see how Organovo prints functional skin samples: The 3-D printed skin tissue will be produced using Organovo’s NovoGen Bioprinting Platform. Using microscopic building blocks from human skin cells, the printing process involves a skin “bio ink” that is blended with a filler gel and tested in a tray.Aside from using bioprinted skin to improve product assessments, 3-D printed skin tissue is already being tested in clinical trials as a treatment for burns and to reduce scars. Perhaps someday it will even be used to fill in crow’s feet and laugh lines, too? A dab here, a dab there and you’re good as new.

first_imgJanuary 2, 2018 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global 5 min read When people think of robots, they often think of machines equipped with artificial intelligence capabilities that will, at some point, have the power to rise up and overtake humans as they learn and grow. Sci-fi narrative aside, what many people don’t realize is that robots have been around for a very long time, and often not in the way that they think. There are different types of robotics technologies, some of which are the moving robots that Amazon uses to staff their distribution centers or are the helpers currently roaming the aisles of some Target and Lowe’s stores.However, physical robots deployed in the blue collar workforce are not the only ones enabling businesses. There are other, much less conspicuous robots that many organizations are already using to exponentially increase staff productivity in white collar roles.Related: Here’s How This Company Is Adding Robots But Also Keeping Its WorkersRobotic Process Automation (RPA) is where software robots interact with existing business and web applications to automate processes within a company’s walls. With RPA, employees have much to gain, including the freedom to focus on productive, rather than repetitive, tasks. Now, as these robots get smarter and easier to deploy, mundane work like reconciling spreadsheets of financial data or filing HR paperwork, will be a thing of the past. This will help foster successful employee engagement strategies by allowing employees to focus on actual data analysis to make the strategic decisions that benefit customers and companies to increase topline growth.Manual work is torpedoing productivity.From finance to billing to IT, employees across all departments are plagued with a slew of manual, repetitive tasks. On average, managers spend two full days per week on administrative activities and, in the U.S., approximately $575 billion per year is spent performing administrative work. Millennial employees would rather make $40,000 per year doing a job they love as opposed to making $100,000 per year doing something boring. There is inherent risk with that much manual work, and those risks range from process delays to unnecessary burden on employee time, to ambivalence, boredom and disengagement that leads to errors, mistakes and job hopping. Not only that, but when employees are short on time, they are less likely to foster ideas and make decisions that can affect the overall health of the organization.As brands look for new ways to gain a competitive edge and increase customer and employee loyalty, it’s more important than ever to implement the right technology to free employees from the more boring, mundane aspects of their jobs, and many are finding that freedom in robotics.Related: Walmart Will Soon Have Robots Roaming the Aisles in 50 StoresA new breed of robots is flattening the learning curve.With the help of robotics, brands are paving the way to change how employees work. According to a recent report, 70 percent of IT decision-makers say that robotics has become more important in the last year alone. In the midst of this increase, some robotics solutions have become “plug and play,” where instead of having to be created from scratch they are pre-built and have best practice process knowledge and can easily be configured by business users. This makes them more accessible, easier and faster to deploy and cost-effective. As robotics become more mainstream, by 2020 robotic process automation is expected to alleviate employee duties in shared service centers by 65 percent. Not only will this increase speed, efficiency and accuracy, employees will finally have the bandwidth to generate ideas that benefit both the customer and the bottom line.One area where this is abundantly clear is for financial professionals. There is a 93 percent chance that their roles will be automated in the next 20 years, but while many accountants fear that this will relegate them to the unemployment line, automation is actually good news. Most accountants are mired in ERP processes, such as invoicing or manual reconciliation or data entry, all of which prevents them from using financial data to make strategic recommendations about the business. With RPA, robots will perform the manual, repetitive tasks, alleviating the burden of processes such as revenue recognition, finally allowing finance teams to move closer to the 80/20 model, where 80 percent of time will be spent on analysis rather than manual tasks.Related: Robots Do It Better: Why Automation Is Good for BusinessHow robotics technology can deliver real value.However, to get those benefits, companies must have the right strategy in place. According to Gartner, by 2019, only 50 percent of organizations will realize the impact of process automation in the form top-line growth. Why? Because too many companies will erroneously focus on labor and headcount reduction. Unfortunately, that mentality only limits the power of RPA. The true benefits are realized when robotics strategies are mapped to business outcomes and overarching goals. Robotics allows companies to achieve benefits that they could not otherwise have imagined because they are constrained by thinking in a world where mundane human effort is a given, yet which constrains innovation. Also, by optimizing how employees work, companies can truly empower employees to move beyond the mundane and elevate their roles into strategists who bring greater value to the brand.  For companies to stay ahead of the competition and keep employees engaged and excited about their roles, implementing the right RPA strategies will be critical to future success. By staying ahead of the curve and implementing RPA early, companies will finally free employees from the manual tasks that plague productivity and allow them to make forward-thinking decisions that will ultimately benefit the bottom line. Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Register Now »last_img read more

first_imgWhen my daughter reached down and picked up the little fish from the surface of the deep blue sea, she asked me what kind it was. Since I knew she was wanting something more specific thansardina roja, I told her I didn’t know. Neither did the old and famous marine biologist standing next to us who has sailed and dived the seven seas for seven decades. We had just spent hundreds of hours filming the largest dolphin pods known, for the biggest documentary ever made about the oceans – but no one had thought to identify, or even really look at, the fish that made the vast bait balls that the dolphin megapods, and much more, feasted on. So I took this photo.Turns out the photo was the first known identification of the sardina roja in Costa Rica. The books showed it to be the little lantern fish, Symbolophorus, the secret to the Costa Rican deep-carbon sink: They make carbon sink to the bottom of the sea with their fins.Little lantern fish are smaller than your finger and live so deep that very few people have ever seen one alive, unless you hang out southwest of the Isla del Caño Biological Reserve, off the shores of Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula. Further offshore than the island, where the continental shelf plunges to the deep sea, the sardina roja stain the surface of the blue sea red.This is the only place known in the world where these fish can be reliably seen alive. People using sonar see them every night.  On sonar, these fish – the most numerous animal on the planet with a backbone – swim in such thick clouds that they appear to be the bottom of the ocean. Every night, all around the world, this false bottom of fish rises up just a bit from the depths of the sea, eats heaps of carbon-rich plankton, and then drops back down again and poops carbon.During a week in which climate change has taken center stage, in a world in which carbon emissions have become an enormous ecological threat, and in an era when great minds are searching for ways to achieve carbon sequestration to remove it from the atmosphere, it is amazing to consider that these tiny lantern fish sink far more carbon than all of the world’s forests combined. Because offshore Osa is the only place in the world where these fish can be reliably seen and studied, it offers an astounding opportunity to better understand the crucial little lantern fish carbon-sink dynamics and help us negate having burned way too much carbon.During the shoot of the biggest dolphin documentary ever made, we sailed at night off the shores of Osa, watching the dolphins glowing and throwing brilliant trails of bioluminescent plankton. We saw that on the windless and smooth surface glowed countless lights brighter than the spectacular stars above, even without the movement that makes most bioluminescent organisms light up. The famous badass underwater cameraman who was with us said it must be the reflection of the stars. I said it might be sea worms or spawn. My daughter said it was little lantern fish. We laughed. She grabbed a net, went astern, and dipped it full of little lantern fish.On dark nights, lantern fish fill the sea off Osa with lights. This glittering surface mesmerizes those lucky enough to glimpse this extraordinary phenomenon. But they are not just beautiful – these fish are tremendously powerful, too. If we can learn more about their secrets, they may help Costa Rica and the world light the way to carbon neutrality, and perhaps a brighter future.Contact costacetacea@gmail.com or visit www.costacetacea.com for more from columnist Shawn Larkin.

The truck was carrying about 50 farm workers when it was hit by the train carrying coal.Traffic accidents with high death tolls are common in South Africa, and are often blamed on negligent drivers and badly maintained roads.According to Gary Ronald, a spokesman of the Automobile Association of South Africa, one million crashes are reported annually, leading to about 14,000 fatalities.Ronald said the country needs to implement a strategy to lower its high level of fatal road accidents.“To turn it around is going to be one hell of a job,” Ronald said.He added a lack of effective policing and an increased number of vehicles on the roads are some of the factors contributing to the high death tolls.“South Africa is getting further and further away from a resolution for road safety,” Ronald said. “For most South Africans there are no consequences for breaking the law.”Friday’s accident came less than a month after a bus crash left 19 people dead in Johannesburg.“The accident was messy,” said government spokesman Thulani Sibuyi describing heads and limbs severed from bodies. The death toll rose to 26 by late Friday, said Malusi Gigaba, South Africa’s Minister of Public Enterprises.

first_imgThe outcome of the federal elections in Germany on Sunday will not affect the integration processes in the European Union and efforts to further strengthen the monetary union, including efforts to form a fiscal union, an economist said.As incumbent chancellor Angela Merkel will continue ruling for a fourth term, “we should not expect to see something different,” even as conservative finance minister Wolfgang Schaeuble may have to give up the office he is holding since 2009, said Andreas Assiotis who heads Hellenic Bank’s economic research division in a telephone interview on Monday.Assiotis added that since the outcome of the elections, which meant heavy losses for Merkel’s ruling party CDU and her coalition partner SPD, is not expected to cause major policy changes, “the status quo remains unchanged”.“We are not going to see a wave of populism affecting Europe,” he said in reference to the “increased” but not materialised risks in recent elections elsewhere in EU countries such as in France and Netherlands, in which the leaders of the far right were defeated.“The only negative element in these elections was that the AfD managed to get into the parliament,” said Assiotis. “But this can in no way change something”.Merkel’s Christian-Democrats saw its total share of votes shrink to 32.9 per cent after losing 8.6 percentage points, while their coalition partners SPD had their worst result following the Second World War, after getting only 20.5 per cent and losing one in five voters. The Greens and the Liberals (FDP) which made gains and saw their share in votes rise to 8.9 per cent and 10.7 per cent respectively, are likely to enter a Jamaica coalition with CDU. A Jamaica coalition is named in reference to the island nation’s flag which contains black, the colour of conservative CDU, yellow, the colour of the pro-business FDP and green, the colour of the environmentalists.The anti-immigrant AfD which favours Germany ditching the euro and returning to the Deutsch Mark, got 12.6 per cent of the vote, 7.9 percentage points more compared to the 2013 elections while the far-left Die Linke got 9.1 per cent compared to 8.6 per cent four years ago.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoOur View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
