12 October 2010Thousands of former fighters are taking part in a new United Nations-supported disarmament drive in the far south of Sudan. Thousands of former fighters are taking part in a new United Nations-supported disarmament drive in the far south of Sudan.The seven ex-combatants – three women and four men – were disarmed, registered and issued certificates during the launch of the scheme yesterday in Torit, the capital of Eastern Equatoria state in southern Sudan.They are the first of some 2,600 people set to be disarmed in the scheme carried out by the Integrated UN Disarmament, Demobilization and Rehabilitation (DDR) Unit, comprising the UN Mission in Sudan (UNMIS), the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the World Food Programme (WFP) and the UN Population Fund (UNFPA).Also taking part is the Southern Sudan DDR Commission, known as SSCCRC.The move to disarm former combatants began in Sudan early last year as part of the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), which ended the long-running north-south civil war.After undergoing disarmament and demobilization, including medical examinations and career counselling, the ex-fighters in Eastern Equatoria will be reintegrated by receiving training in small business skills and vocational training in carpentry, tailoring, auto mechanics, driving, plumbing and others areas.Marchenia Eley Luchano, one of the fighters demobilized yesterday, said she hoped to begin civilian work to earn enough to feed her five children once she finished the process.“If the Government assists me with land and farm tools, I will grow more food to feed my children and send them to school,” said the widow.To date, DDR has been carried out in the states of Central Equatoria, Lakes and Northern Bahr El Ghazal. Later this month, the scheme will be launched in Western Bahr El Ghazal state.
Canada’s Potash Corp of Saskatchewan reported better-than-expected revenue on Thursday as it sold more potash at higher prices compared with last year.U.S.-listed shares of the company rose 3.1 per cent in pre-market trading to $18.24.The world’s third largest potash producer said potash sales jumped 11.2 per cent to 2.4 million tonnes in the second quarter ended June 30.Average realized price for potash rose to $174 per tonne from $154 per tonne a year ago, reflecting a continued recovery in global spot prices, the company said.Potash market has rebounded since last year as agronomic need and affordability supported demand, especially in offshore markets, and contributed to modestly higher prices.Potash Corp forecast global demand of 62-65 million tonnes this year, up from an earlier forecast of 61-64 million tonnes.Net earnings rose to $201 million, or 24 cents per share, from $121 million, or 14 cents per share, a year earlier.On an adjusted basis, it earned 16 cents per share, missing analysts’ average estimate by 2 cents, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.The Saskatoon, Saskatchewan-based fertilizer producer’s revenue rose 6.4 per cent to $1.11 billion, beating estimate of $1.09 billion.© Thomson Reuters 2017
“We are proud of our sustained efforts in terms of factory inspections and audits, and our teams work very closely with our suppliers and their factories to ensure compliance. “Companies like Topshop have a duty to find out if these things are happening, and it has long been shown that ethical inspections by these companies are failing.”An unnamed seamstress from MAS Holdings, whose 74,000-strong workforce is made up of 70 per cent women, also dismissed claims that the workers are empowered. “When they talk about women and empowerment this is just for the foreigners. They want the foreigners to think everything is OK,” the seamstress said.The Sri Lankan company is not breaking any laws as the legal minimum wage in Sri Lanka is 13,500 rupees a month but campaigners feel the minimum wage should be closer to 43,000 rupees.A Topshop spokesperson defended Beyonce’s range to the newspaper, saying: “Ivy Park has a rigorous ethical trading programme. Hollywood singer Beyonce’s sportswear brand ‘Ivy Park’ is being made by workers in Sri Lanka earning just £4.30 a day in squalid conditions, British and US newspaper alleged.The range was named after her four-year-old daughter Blue Ivy and created to “inspire women who understand that beauty is more than your physical appearance”. “We expect our suppliers to meet our code of conduct and we support them in achieving these requirements.”Ivy Park is sold across Australia in Top Shop, Glue Store, Myer and online retailer The Iconic and Beyonce has not personally commented on the matter. (Colombo Gazette) Seven News reported that Sri Lankan women are made to work over 60 hours a week for less than half of the average wage to produce the activewear clothing brand. The Sun reports that anti-slavery campaigner Jakub Sobik has attacked Beyonce’s brand, revealing: “With what is being described here, this is a form of sweat shop slavery.
Beyond rooms and homes: Airbnb adding tours and activities SAN FRANCISCO – Not content with just renting out spare rooms and vacant homes, Airbnb is adding local tours and activities like surfing lessons and pub crawls to its travel services in major cities around the world.With the new features announced Thursday, the fast-growing online rental company is hoping to tap into leisure travellers’ desire for distinctive “experiences” that make them feel more connected with the places they visit, travel industry analysts say.The move also shows the ambitions of a company that’s already one of the world’s fastest-growing privately held firms. Airbnb, which boasts millions of rental listings around the world, has been valued at $30 billion — though it’s run into growing pains in some cities where local officials complain the boom in short-term rentals is reducing long-term housing for residents.Airbnb’s new guided activities include things like surfing lessons or cooking class led by a local chef, a pub crawl through a trendy nightclub district or even a truffle hunt in Tuscany. The company has been testing the services in a few cities over the last year, enlisting local hosts as guides. It’s expanding to 12 cities, while promising 50 by next year.“They want to be viewed as more of a travel company and not just an alternative lodging firm,” said Henry Harteveldt, an analyst with Atmosphere Research. “Our research shows travellers spend as much as 60 per cent of their travel budget at their destination. So they want to tap into that very large revenue stream.”The new services add to a set of online guides that Airbnb introduced earlier this year that list restaurants, outings and other attractions recommended by Airbnb hosts. Airbnb says it will also recommend “meet-ups,” or impromptu gatherings, and other activities keyed to travellers’ interest in topics like food, history, music or local crafts.Travellers can already get similar recommendations from a variety of online services, including popular sites like Google and Facebook. But Airbnb hopes travellers will find it easier to use the new services within its own mobile app or website.Similarly, the company is partnering with online booking app Resy to let travellers make restaurant reservations through Airbnb — in competition with services like OpenTable and Yelp.In an interview, Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky said he hopes to add more services, including the ability to book airline flights.Since the company launched in 2008, when the co-founders invited travellers to sleep on an air mattress in their San Francisco loft, Airbnb has grown to be one of the world’s most valuable private startups by collecting fees when private hosts rent out accommodations listed on the site. It’s raised $3.9 billion from investors, according to CB Insights, which tracks venture funding.Chesky declined to say if the company is profitable, although the Wall Street Journal reported last year that Airbnb was spending heavily to expand in more cities. The newspaper cited internal projections that forecast Airbnb to have nearly $1 billion in revenue last year and to become profitable by 2020.Airbnb has run into regulatory battles in some cities, including New York and San Francisco, but Chesky said he’s hopeful to resolve those issues.The company also recently faced criticism after researchers reported some hosts appeared to reject rental applications from travellers whose names or photos indicated they were African-American. In response, Chesky has apologized and said the company would institute new policies, including sensitivity training and an anti-discrimination pledge for hosts, developed with input from advocacy groups and former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.Chesky said Thursday that he’s committed to addressing discrimination, while adding: “I think this is something that we’re not going to be able to fix overnight.” by Brandon Bailey, The Associated Press Posted Nov 17, 2016 12:25 pm MDT Last Updated Nov 17, 2016 at 2:54 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email
Gov. Bill Walker says he’ll continue pushing for construction of a new ferry terminal in Prince Rupert, British Columbia.Download AudioHis administration cancelled project bidding Jan. 21 due to a dispute over construction materials.Federal funds covering most of the project require U.S. steel to be used. Canadian officials won’t let that happen.The ferry Taku loads up at the Prince Rupert, B.C., ferry terminal July 24, 2014. (Ed Schoenfeld/CoastAlaska News)At a recent press conference, Walker said he expected to find a way around the conflict.“It’s an important part of what we do as far as our Alaska Marine Highway System. So, we’ll continue to have that discussion and I’m sure we’ll come to some sort of understanding so the project can move forward,” Walker said.Prince Rupert is about 100 miles southeast of Ketchikan. It’s the only ferry port on the mainland road system in the thousand miles between Skagway and Bellingham, Washington.State Transportation Department officials say the current dock and ramp will last no more than five years.The terminal had to close for repairs when it was deemed unsafe in 2008. But that was only a temporary fix.Since then, there state has negotiated a $3.3-million, 50-year lease for the terminal, which is part of Prince Rupert’s port.Transportation Department spokesman Jeremy Woodrow said that’s a long-enough commitment to justify reconstruction.“Usually when we build facilities, bridges, roads they have a finite life. And 50 years is a pretty good estimate for a lifespan of a terminal,” Woodrow said.Bidding documents listed the cost at $10 million to $20 million.Woodrow says if the project proceeds, it’s expected to take one or two construction seasons to build.
A park ranger shot and killed a brown bear that was wounded during a hazing event in Dyea about two weeks ago, putting the animal out of its misery over the weekend.A brown bear. This is not the bear that was shot in Skagway. (Alaska Department of Fish and Game)On Saturday, a National Park Service ranger shot the bear that had evaded authorities for two weeks.The bear was seriously injured during an attempt to scare it away from campers by a Skagway police officer on July 16. The officer intended to use a non-lethal rubber bullet, but accidentally loaded a lethal slug and shot the bear in the rump. The wounded animal dove into the Taiya River and disappeared. It hadn’t been seen until this weekend.Following the hazing event, the Skagway Interagency Bear Management Group, made up of representatives from the Skagway Police Department, the park service, and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, evaluated the situation and determined to dispatch the bear whether it still demonstrated evidence of suffering.Skagway Police Chief Ray Leggett apologized last week on behalf of the department for the accident. He said he was taking steps to prevent such a mishap from happening again. Leggett said the officer had only been on the job for a month at that point, and had yet to complete “hazing training.”According to a park service release, a resident contacted the park ranger and reported Saturday morning and observed an injured bear near a fishing slough on the Dyea Mud Flats.The release stated that the ranger observed that the bear was unable to use one of its hind legs and was not afraid of people. After those observations, the ranger shot and killed the bear.The park service and police department processed the bear as a “Defense of Life or Property” take.After it was shot, they discovered the bear suffered from a broken femur and dislocated hip as a result of the hazing incident.The hide and skull will be turned over to Fish and Game as is required by state law.

“We are really looking forward to the spring and building off what we did to close the fall,” Trimble said. “We made it to the national championship finals last year and most of that group is back, so they’ve tasted that and I am really excited to see how far we can go.” Press Conference LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Head coach Courtney Trimble, junior Lauren Hartlage and freshman Mairead Martin spoke to the media at Monday’s Spring Sports Media Day. Story Links The 2019 spring season begins on Sunday, Feb. 10 for the Cardinals, looking to build off the fall season that saw UofL play in five tournaments, taking third at the Minnesota Invitational and Cardinal Cup before closing out 2018 with a wire-to-wire victory at the Alexa Stirling Women’s Intercollegiate.

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter announced Wednesday that he has cancer and will be undergoing treatment at Emory Healthcare in Atlanta.Carter, 90, said the disease was discovered during recent liver surgery to remove “a small mass” and that the cancer “is now in other parts of my body.”“I will be rearranging my schedule as necessary so I can undergo treatment by physicians at Emory Healthcare,” Carter said in a statement on the Carter Center website. “A more complete public statement will be made when facts are known, possibly next week.”Carter currently is the second-oldest living former president, and he recently release an autobiography titled “A Full Life.” His liver surgery had “proceeded without issues” and he was expected to make a full recovery, according to a statement from the Carter Center last week.Carter’s brother, Billy, and his two sisters died of pancreatic cancer, as did his father. His mother died of breast cancer. In an interview with The New York Times in 2007, Carter ruminated on why so many in his family had suffered from the disease.“I’m deeply religious, I’m a fatalist, I’m 82 years old and I’ve had a good life,” he said then. In a recent interview on PBS NewsHour, he said his family members all smoked cigarettes but he never did, suggesting that might have been a “triggering device” for genetic causes of the disease in them.© 2015, The Washington Post Facebook Comments Related posts:Former US President Jimmy Carter says cancer has spread to his brain US ex-President Jimmy Carter declares he’s free of cancer How Jimmy Carter has long pursued peace, justice and care for those on the margins US President Obama tasks VP Biden with ‘moonshot’ bid to cure cancer
Facebook Comments President Luis Guillermo Solís took a medical leave to undergo prostate surgery Wednesday after postponing the procedure last week to overseerelief efforts related to Tropical Storm Nate.Solís visited a private clinic in San José early Wednesday morning for surgery on a benign prostate enlargement. His doctors announced later in the day that the two-hour surgery was successful.The medical staff indicated that the president was in good spirits, asked them about the procedure and chatted with families who arrived to visit him.Surgeon Mario González said at a press conference that Solís will be released Thursday and must spend two weeks taking it easy.“He can get up and go to the bathroom, perform some minor tasks. He doesn’t have to stay in bed,” the doctor explained. “We recommend that he move around and walk.”In a video released Tuesday, Solís announced the operation alongside First Lady Mercedes Peñas.“I postponed my surgery in recent days to dedicate myself to the after effects of Nate, but the time has come to have the operation, which can’t be postponed any longer,” Solís said in the video.According to Costa Rican law, Vice President Helio Fallas stepped in as acting president during Solís’ leave.

in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Secondary Market Consumer spending Economic Growth 2017-06-19 Brianna Gilpin Fannie Mae Says Uncertainty Lies Ahead June 19, 2017 659 Views Share The U.S. is embarking on its ninth year of economic expansion and Fannie Mae is predicting economic growth rebound. According to their Economic & Strategic Research Group’s June 2017 Economic and Housing Outlook, second quarter economic growth will rebound to 2.9 percent from last quarters 1.2 percent. Consumer spending growth is expected to return to its traditional role as the biggest contributor to economic growth, picking up to 3.1 percent this quarter from 0.6 percent in the first quarter. Fannie Mae said moderate growth is expected to continue into next year, however uncertainty in fiscal and monetary policy makes the forecast a little difficult.“This month marks the eighth anniversary of the U.S. economic expansion, the third-longest of the post-World War II era. While we expect modest growth to continue in 2018, the potential for fiscal stimulus remains a notable wild card,” said Fannie Mae Chief Economist Doug Duncan. “The odds that Congress will enact major pieces of legislation this year and jump-start meaningful fiscal stimulus have diminished, and the economy also faces another fiscal policy uncertainty in coming months, as Congress will have to raise the debt ceiling to avoid a government shutdown.”Duncan said the Federal Open Market Committee’s June decision to raise the fed funds rate by 25 basis points has increased the uncertainty of monetary policy.“Our June forecast assumes that the Fed will increase the target rate once more this year in September and will begin to taper reinvestment of principal payments from its securities holdings in December. However, the recent slowdowns in hiring and inflation could lead the Fed to hold off on the September rate hike in order to gather more data.”According to Duncan, the housing market hasn’t changed all that much in the last year. Labor and inventory shortages are constraining sales and therefore increasing home prices.“We expect total home sales to rise 3.2 percent this year and total single-family mortgage originations to drop about 21 percent to $1.62 trillion,” Duncan said. “A large drop in refinance originations will likely outweigh a modest rise in purchase originations. We expect the refinance share to move down to around 34 percent in 2017 from 48 percent in 2016.”For more details on Fannie Mae’s June 2017 Economic and Housing Outlook, click here.
The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo In football terms, “triplets” refers to a team’s quarterback-running back-receiver combination.The phrase was popularized in the 1990s when Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin of the Dallas Cowboys were putting up big numbers and winning Super Bowls.NFL.com analyst Dave Dameshek has ranked the current triplet combinations in the league, and he doesn’t have the Arizona Cardinals’ trio ranked very high. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Comments Share Top Stories Dameshek lists Arizona at No. 24 on his “top triplets for 2015” list, using the combination of Carson Palmer, Andre Ellington and Michael Floyd.Writes Dameshek: Injuries and inconsistency have plagued this trio, but the Cards are nonetheless worthy playoff contenders, thanks to coach Bruce Arians and a terrific defense. Ellington’s breakout — foretold by over-anxious Arizona coaches last year — could come in 2015 behind what looks to be a rugged line.It should be noted that Dameshek did not list Cardinals’ receiver Larry Fitzgerald as one of the players considered in the combination.The Steelers’ triplet combo of Ben Roethlisberger, Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown was ranked first, followed by Green Bay (Aaron Rodgers, Eddie Lacy and Jordy Nelson) and Seattle (Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch and Jimmy Graham).

LISTEN: Tyvon Branch, Cardinals’ Safety Comments Share His decision to leave the AFC West and join the Cardinals was a pretty easy one.“They’ve got a solid team,” he told Burns and Gambo on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM Tuesday. “Ten-plus wins the past three seasons; Carson Palmer is obviously a great quarterback (and) in this league if you have a great quarterback you have a chance to win it all.“So that was kind of like the big thing to me. Then the defense is exciting, they make a lot of big plays and I wanted to be a part of that.”Talking about Branch at the Arians Family Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic last Sunday, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said the 29-year-old is someone they’ve known about for a while.“He’s a very versatile, fast safety who can play man-to-man,” Arians said. “If you go back and you watch the Chiefs and the Patriots, he was locked on (Rob) Gronkowski. He’s that type of safety and you can’t have enough of them.”A fourth-round pick in the 2008 NFL Draft out of Connecticut, Branch has appeared in 75 games and collected 461 tackles (355 solo), eight sacks, four interceptions, four fumble recoveries and three forced fumbles. The 6-foot, 210-pound safety was timed at 4.31 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the Combine, and that’s a mark he said he’d like to think he can still run. Even if he can’t, Branch certainly does not lack for speed. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories Kansas City Chiefs defensive back Tyvon Branch (27) lines up against the Arizona Cardinals during the first half of an NFL preseason football game, Saturday, Aug. 15, 2015, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) In terms of role, Branch said he has not been told much yet, but he understands a safety in today’s NFL must be able to play in the box, cover receivers and tight ends and give help over the top.“That type of versatility, I mean, I think that’s the standard right now in the league, that’s what everybody’s looking for,” he said.The Cardinals were, and they believe they have found a player like that in Branch. He is confident he excels at exactly what Arizona needs, which is one of the reasons he signed.“I cover slots, I cover tight ends and if they want to blitz me or anything like that, I have those capabilities as well,” he said.The contract Branch signed is for $8 million over two years, with the potential for it to be worth as much as $10.75 million if certain incentives are reached. It is a solid deal, but Branch said other factors contributed to his decision to head to the desert.“Different people have different motivations, obviously, but with me, I wanted to go to a good team and I wanted to have a chance to be a part of the defense and make plays,” he said. “With the conversations I had with the teams that I was choosing from, the conversations I had with the Cardinals I felt was the best fit for me.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Your browser does not support the audio element. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The Arizona Cardinals did not necessarily make headlines when they signed safety Tyvon Branch away from the Kansas City Chiefs, but in making the move they added a versatile defensive back who they believe will help improve an already strong secondary.Last season, Branch recorded 40 total tackles with one interception, one sack, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and a pair of defensive touchdowns in his first season with the Chiefs after spending the first seven seasons of his career with the Oakland Raiders.
13. Get artsy at Museo NéstorNéstor’s museum and art gallery makes a cool change to the hot weather and beautiful beaches in Gran Canaria. Marvel at Nestor’s earliest work, 1900’s Marina, which he finished when he was just 13 years old. The Canarian artist used to live in the San Francisco district of Teide, however, he passed away before he was able to catalogue his work properly. His brother went onto build Museo Néstor – a gem of a museum in Las Palmas.Opening Hours: 10am-7pm daily, Sundays 10.30am-2.30pmTickets: 0.50 cents per personAddress: Calle Francisco González Díaz, s/n, 35005 Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Las Palmas ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepartReturnCabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map 2. Ride sand dunes on camelbackMake like Lawrence of Arabia in Maspalomas, a glorious 8km-long white beach featuring colossal dunes that span half its length and extend a further 3.5km inland. Sure you can walk, horse ride or even quad bike these 404 hectares of rolling sand hills, but for something out of the ordinary, take a camel ride. The camels’ long legs mean there’s a different rhythm – it’s a slower pace than on horseback and strangely calming. Playing safari in this mini Sahara is hot work, so cool down with a sorbet in the shadow of the magnificent 56-feet-tall Maspalomas lighthouse. The promenade is the place to people watch at sunset, and if you’re lucky you’ll catch the beach’s resident sand artist hard at work crafting his next sculpture.Opening Hours: Daily tours – organise directly with Camel SafariTickets: €35 per adult, €19 per childAddress: GC-60, Km. 14, 35108 Fataga, Las Palmas3. Hike Caldera de BandamaThis Jurassic bowl-shaped crater evokes prehistoric times. At 1000 metres in diameter and 200 metres deep, this awesome crater was formed by an extremely powerful volcanic eruption an estimated 1,970 years ago. It looks formidable, but you can hike down into the crater comfortably in 30 minutes; allow double the time to get back up though. It goes without saying that you should wear sturdy boots and carry plenty of water. Walking the cinder path you’ll see lizards, cacti, eucalyptus and orange trees, while the view from the platform atop the crater extends over the entire north-east and central mountainous belt of the island. You can get food and drink at the nearby golf club, but as this is vineyard territory, you may want to enjoy the harvest of the Vino Del Monte with a well-earned glass of Rioja.Opening Hours: 24 hoursTickets: FreeAddress: Santa Brigida, 35300 Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Gran Canaria, Spain4. Moonwalk at Roque NubloBang in the centre of the island, this little and large rock pairing is well worth a visit. The relatively short hike up to this unmistakable landmark is hot work, so get hydrated with a fresh juice from the van in the car park. Standing 80 metres tall and 1,813 meters above sea level, the Roque Nublo isn’t actually the highest point on the island (that accolade goes to Pico de la Nieves), although with its exposed position rising out of the Caldera de Tejeda, it is certainly the most prominent. You can enjoy panoramic 360-degree views of the island from on top of the peak, but the quasi-lunar landscape itself is the real draw: it’s quite uncanny.Opening Hours: 24 hoursTickets: FreeAddress: GC150, 35368, Gran Canaria 11.

Nowadays, in Gran Canaria, Arucas rum is ubiquitous and is exported worldwide. A visit to the distillery, 15 minutes journey from the capital Las Palmas, is a very merry way to spend an afternoon. Every year, more than 3.5 million litres of rum are produced here; see the rum production process before sampling one of the many flavours, from banana and coffee to honey and toffee.
