According to the United Nations, over 10,000 civilians have sought refuge at two of its compounds in Juba.“The mission is taking every possible step to ensure their safety while they are staying on UNMISS [United Nations Mission in South Sudan] premises,” Hilde Johnson, special representative of the UN secretary-general, said in a statement.On Monday, South Sudanese President Salva Kiir announced that the army had successfully quashed a coup attempt by troops loyal to sacked vice-president Riek Machar.A government spokesman said Tuesday that ten people had been arrested for suspected involvement in the coup.In July, Kiir abruptly sacked Machar – along with the entire government – and drew up a special committee to investigate allegations of government corruption.Last year, Kiir had sent a letter to 75 current and former government officials suspected of embezzling some $4 billion over a six-year period starting from 2005.Kiir has recently come under fire from senior members of the ruling SPLM who accuse him of failing to adequately run both the party and the nascent country.US orders departure of non-essential embassy staff from S.

Ban Kimoon applauds UN Peacebuilding Commission on early successes

“The Peacebuilding Commission embodies all aspects of the UN’s work: peace, development and human rights,” Mr. Ban said at a PBC retreat he is attending this weekend.Backed by the multi-year standing Peacebuilding Fund, the Commission focuses on reconstruction, institution-building and the promotion of sustainable development in post-conflict countries.The Secretary-General congratulated the Commission for providing assistance to Sierra Leone through an at-times tense election process, as well as for bringing key groups in Burundi to the table to break a deadlock in Parliament.“Peacebuilding is not just about ‘bricks and mortar’ – it is a transformative process involving changing attitudes about how to manage conflict,” he told the retreat’s participants. “While we haven’t yet determined how to measure the Commission’s accomplishments, I am confident that the people of Burundi and Sierra Leone will soon affirm its positive impact on their lives.”He added that the PBC must now use the momentum generated by its success in those two nations to assist Guinea-Bissau, which last December became the third country on the Commission’s agenda. 18 January 2008Lauding the United Nations Peacebuilding Commission (PBC) on its successes in Sierra Leone and Burundi, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today underscored the advisory body’s key role in helping countries emerging from conflict avert a slide back to war. read more

Facebook Has Played Us All

first_img Podcasts Are TV Shows Now With ‘Limetown’ Trailer7 Icebreakers for Facebook’s New Dating Service Remember that Mark Zuckerberg covers his laptop camera and microphone.….and that phone in your pocket or bag, has a microphone and camera on it too !!— Telomere (@ChrisDarroch2) March 27, 2018It has been said countless times — if the product is free, then you are the product. We’ve known this. We’ve ALL known this.How many times have you looked up a product and then saw an ad for that thing or something very similar pop up on Facebook or Amazon moments later? When we agree to buy into modern social media, or vast segments of the internet, we are being served content for free. That money doesn’t come from nothing. It comes from the data you provide by participating. That’s the role of cookies, that’s the role of trackers, etc.We are already living in a cyberpunk dystopia. It’s practically inescapable at this point. If, for instance, you want to cut Facebook out of your life as I am now wont to do, you have to grapple with all the apps and services you’ve connected to the platform. If you want to keep in touch with all the folks you had in your digital address book… good freaking luck. Few other platforms are as centralized or as dominant. Amazon and the like are no easier, and trying use the internet at all without interacting with a Google-owned service is basically impossible.But, that’s just it. These services wouldn’t have become so dominant if we didn’t ask for it. We wanted easier log-ins. We wanted more content to scroll through our never-ending #content binges. We signed up for this. If anything, that’s the most terrifying thing about all this. This is a hell of our own making.It’s hard to be sympathetic for the lion’s share of… well, people, because I was just as guilty as anyone else. I gave Facebook everything, curtly dismissing concerns of privacy, (foolishly) thinking, “What have I to hide?”Truth be told, I still have very little to hide. I’m fairly open about my life, and I don’t mind people knowing about me. Where it gets a little dicey, though, is when that data gets put into a giant bin, processed and analyzed to hell, then spat back out as a precisely engineered mechanism that will cause me to spend more money, recklessly. Or, perhaps worse, keep me trapped in an endless loop of media consumption. Not to pacify me or anything truly nefarious, but to keep me plugging more data into the algorithms so that I keep consuming.We’re all complacent victims. And, with precious little recourse, there’s not much to do. Besides, unplug.Orrrrrr we could make peace with our real-world cyberpunk dystopia and take the express route to our collective corporatist nightmare. Heyyyyy, that reminds me… Have you seen this puppy video?For more on how to protect your privacy from Facebook visit our sister site PCMag. So the Facebook/Cambridge Analytica data “leak” is bad. Real bad. And it’s also pushing a lot of ourboundaries for how we, as a society describe and discuss data and privacy. This wasn’t a leak per se, as CA technically acquired user data as the system was designed. There were no hacks, breaches, or abused vulnerabilities. The system was working as intended. And we all should have known that.There’ve been more than a few armchair culture critics who have pointed out Zuck’s own rather infamously stringent privacy precautions. He’s appeared in public with his laptop, as well as snapped in more than a few shots, with devices that have had their microphones and cameras taped over — a common tactic for those looking to avoid unwanted snooping. And these sort of things tie into this broader narrative that Zuckerberg knew what he was designing and did foresee at least some of these privacy concerns and continued to push Facebook as a platform regardless.And that narrative is an easy one to follow because that’s precisely what happened.Okay, sure, perhaps Z didn’t see this particular scenario, but the push for big data has always been about exactly this scenario — hyper-targeted advertising that pulls from as many different sources of info for you as it can.center_img Stay on targetlast_img read more

Teen Titans Go Vs Teen Titans Trailer Doesnt Anger Me

first_img Joaquin Phoenix Wanted Thomas Wayne Excluded From ‘Joker’ Script’Joker’ Earns High Rotten Tomatoes Score From Film Critics Stay on target Not that I’m watching much Cartoon Network these days but even I know that wacky superhero comedy Teen Titans Go is one of the channel’s biggest hits. They even went to the movies last summer. Surely something this harmless couldn’t be controversial.But Teen Titans Go isn’t just a wacky superhero comedy. It’s also a re-imagining of the beloved original 2003 Teen Titans cartoon, itself a stylish adaptation of the legendary 1980s New Teen Titans run. And fans of that show haven’t enjoyed watching it be replaced by this sillier follow-up. Plus the new show loves making fun of fans of the old show which is honestly great.And yet, as a die-hard fan of that original show who doesn’t care one way or another about Go, the best thing I can say about this trailer for the upcoming crossover Teen Titans Go! Vs. Teen Titans is that it doesn’t anger me. See for yourself.Like last year’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Teen Titans Go! Vs. Teen Titans has the two teenage superhero groups teaming up from across dimensions to take on bigger threats like Raven’s demonic father Trigon… and Santa Claus.First teased at the end of Teen Titans Go to the Movies, this is direct-to-video film clearly still focuses on the newer Titans. The original crew appear to be guest stars and even their anime-inspired designs are slightly tweaked for the newer style. Plus we see hints of other horny Titan incarnations joining the fight.Still, what’s always been weird to me about this schism is that the original Teen Titans cartoon was also funny. It was more dramatic and emotional but it wasn’t this brooding overly serious DC bore that this new trailer tries to retcon it into. That’s Young Justice and the live-action Titans show both on DC Universe.But whatever, I’m still looking forward to revisiting my Teen Titans when Teen Titans Go! Vs. Teen Titans releases later this year.last_img read more

Gattuso on transfers There will be very few signings

first_imgAC Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso has warned their supporters that they will not be as active as last summer in the upcoming transfer windowUpon the completion of Li Yonghong’s takeover last year, the Chinese businessman funded a major spending spree for Milan in order for them to re-claim their spot among the elite clubs in Europe.The Serie A side promptly signed up the likes of Leonardo Bonucci, Hakan Calhanoglu and Andre Silva, for this season. But so far, they have struggled to produce the kind of performances that were expected of them with head coach Vincenzo Montella being fired in November due to a poor start in their campaign.Since Gattuso was promoted from the youth ranks, the Italian has successfully guided the club back into contention for a spot in next season’s Champions League places and was recently awarded a new three year contract.It was expected that Yonghong would have provided Gattuso with substantial backing for the summer transfer window in order to build a side capable of mounting a challenge for the Serie A title, but the former midfielder insists that further spending is not the answer at the club and that it is up to both himself and his fellow coaches to ensure progression.“There will be very few signings and I am happy with that because these players are some of the best in the world,” said Gattuso, according to the club’s Twitter.Cristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“Some of them will improve.“We will dip into the transfer market to sign a few players to help this team, but don’t expect 20 or 30 new signings.

Indian airlines to incur losses up to 19 billion – report

first_imgReuters fileIndian airlines are expected to post combined losses of up to $1.9 billion this financial year led by full-service carriers like Air India and Jet Airways are driven by rising costs and low airfares, aviation consulting firm Corrective Action Preventive Action (CAPA) India said.The loss forecast for the 12 months ending March 31 is up from an estimated $430 million to $460 million sector-wide loss in January largely due to the depreciation of the rupee and a rise in oil prices, CAPA said in a report released on Monday evening.Ticket prices have not risen to compensate for higher costs, and CAPA said with the exception of Interglobe Aviation Ltd IndiGo, none of the airlines have strong enough balance sheets to comfortably withstand higher costs and lower yields.”Most carriers are ill-equipped to withstand cyclical downturns,” CAPA said in the report. “Airlines have completely lost pricing power as a result of the rapid influx of capacity.”India is the fastest-growing domestic aviation market in the world and carriers have placed orders for hundreds of new Airbus SE and Boeing Co jets.But airlines have struggled to stay profitable despite filling nearly 90 percent of seats and seeing a more than doubling of domestic passenger numbers over the last four years.India is one of the cheapest domestic airline markets in the world and promotions such as $50 one-way tickets on the two-hour flight from Mumbai to Delhi are easy to find.CAPA estimated Indian airlines, including money-losing state-owned Air India Ltd, need an additional $3 billion of capital in the near term to shore up their balance sheets.The government in June said it had failed to attract bidders for a 76 percent stake in the national carrier, which is dependent on handouts to keep operating.Jet Airways (India) Ltd last month reported a quarterly loss of 13.23 billion rupees ($185.79 million) and said it was seeking to cut costs, inject capital and monetize its frequent flyer programme.Budget carrier IndiGo, the country’s largest airline, in July report, ted its lowest quarterly profit in three years, with earnings down 97 percent due to rising fuel costs and foreign exchange losses.last_img read more

This Chinese Robot Parks Your Car for You

first_img 2 min read The dreaded act of parallel parking could soon become a thing of the past with Chinese inventors backing their new parking robot to take away the stress for anxious drivers.The laser-guided “Geta” (get a car) robot slides under your vehicle, picks it up, finds a parking space in the lot and places the car in the tightest of spots.The soon to be launched robot needs just two minutes to park a vehicle, does not need tracks, has 360 degrees mobility and will utilize space better than humans, said creators Yee Fung Automation Technology, based in the south China city of Shenzhen.”The parking robot is designed to increase parking space,” Yee Fung’s 33-year-old chief executive and brainchild of Geta, Marco Wu, told Reuters.”The robot can go everywhere … and will reform parking in the future.”Mainland China is expected to have more than 200 million cars by 2020, the government say, meaning that finding space to park could become increasingly difficult.Wu said Geta finds spaces by transmitting signals to a computer containing a map which then directs the robot to an available spot.The purple and lime green robot will cost more than 1 million yuan ($150,000) and Wu said there had been lots of interest from cities where space is at a premium.”There are many companies interested in our products, such as commercial property companies in Singapore and London, public parking companies in the Middle East, and developers, governments, as well as public parking companies in China,” he said.(Reporting by Reuters TV; Editing by Patrick Johnston) This story originally appeared on Reuters Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

first_img Top Stories Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Four benefits of having a wireless security system The Palestinian Authority supplies 11 teachers and staffers for the school’s 90 children, ranging from grade one to seven. Mariam Abu Ghaziah, one of the teachers, said they hope to keep adding grades.Despite the shortcomings, the school is the best education that most will receive in this deeply conservative community.Most parents are reluctant to send the children, especially girls, outside the village to high school. It is not proper for them to be outside for so long, said mother Sara Hussein, 35.As a result, Hussein, the mother, who cannot read, made her eldest daughter, Nour, 14, drop out of school after sixth grade. If the school adds grades, she can return, but she won’t be sent to Jericho, her mother said.The teenager, with a stony face, watched her siblings excitedly prepare for school as she shook a milk-filled goat skin _ an ancient method for making butter.“I was really good at school,” she said. “I’d like to go back.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Don Shooter shows health improvement Sponsored Stories “We’ll go to school until it’s demolished,” said 10-year-old Islam Hussein as she dashed to the school on a nearby hill, after hastily dressing in clothes her mother gave her. She was faster than her brother, Mohammed, 6. Their mother Sara playfully threw shoes at them as she told them not to be late.Behind them was their home: a series of huts of tin, plastic and wood, forming a kitchen, sleeping room and animal pens. Nearby was the family’s camel herd. Bedouins have lived in similar conditions for centuries, sometimes preferring a nomadic life style to the offer of government-built towns.About 150,000 Palestinians, or 6 percent of the total number in the West Bank, including those of Khan al-Ahmar, live in the 60 percent of the territory that remains under full Israeli control. This territory is also home to Jewish settlements, where 300,000 Israelis live.Palestinians and their supporters say Israel is trying to pressure them out by refusing to allow them to build infrastructure. Israel has issued demolition orders against some 3,000 structures: homes, cisterns, solar-power generators and 18 schools, including the Khan al-Ahmar Mixed Elementary School, according to U.N. figures, but only a fraction have been carried out.center_img Associated PressKHAN AL-AHMAR, West Bank (AP) – Dozens of children returned to school on Sunday, taking part in an annual ritual that has taken on special meaning in this Bedouin tent camp.The makeshift school buildings, cobbled together from mud and old tires, were built over the objections of Israeli authorities who are now threatening to demolish the structures.Israel says it won’t tear them down until alternate facilities are available. Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project In the first half of this year, Israel destroyed 360 structures, the U.N. reported.Israeli military spokesman Guy Inbar said while there was a demolition order for the school and the entire encampment, there is no intention of destroying it until an alternative is found for the students. He said many of the community had willingly relocated to a nearby Palestinian town.Just as Israelis have built West Bank settlements over the decades to cement their hold on the territory, Palestinians see building up their communities as the way to keep their land. Palestinians claim the West Bank as part of their future state.“We are fully intent on building facts on the ground that are consistent with the inevitability of the emergence of the fully independent sovereign state of Palestine,” said Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad in a visit to the school.The Jahalin Bedouin clan used to send their children to schools in the Palestinian town of Jericho, about 20 kilometers (13 miles) away. The Palestinian Authority-issued school bus didn’t always turn up, said Eid Sweilam, a community activist.The community decided to build its own school, completing it in 2009 with help from Western aid groups and Israeli volunteers, Sweilam said.
