Sustainable farming can help meet global demand for cassava – UN foodSustainable farming can help meet global demand for cassava – UN food

In a new field guide, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) states that cassava output has increased by 60 per cent since 2000 and is set to accelerate further over the current decade as policymakers recognize its huge potential.However, the agency warned that the current input-intensive approach to boost cassava production also risks causing damage to the natural resource base and increasing greenhouse gas emission responsible for climate change. Instead of intensive farming, FAO advocates for a Save and Grow approach, which can sustainably increase cassava crops by 400 per cent.“Save and Grow minimizes soil disturbance caused by conventional tillage such as ploughing, and recommends maintaining a protective cover of vegetation over soil,” FAO said in a news release. “Instead of the monocropping normally seen in intensive farming systems, Save and Grow encourages mixed cropping and rotation, and predicates integrated pest management, which uses disease-free planting material and pests’ natural enemies to keep harmful insects down, instead of chemical pesticides.”The approach has already had successful results in trials organized in Viet Nam, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Colombia.Cassava is a highly versatile crop grown by small farmers in more than 100 countries. Second only to maize as a source of starch, its roots are rich in carbohydrates while its tender leaves contain up to 25 per cent protein, plus iron, calcium and vitamins A and C. Other parts of the plant can be used as animal feed, and livestock raised on cassava have good disease resistance and low mortality rates.Demand for cassava has increased in part because of the current high level of cereal prices, making it an attractive alternative to wheat and maize. Cassava also has a range of industrial uses that give it huge potential to spur rural industrial development and raise rural incomes.Another important consideration is that of the major staple crops in Africa, hardy, resilient cassava is expected to be the least affected by advancing climate change.“With Save and Grow developing countries can […] avoid the risks of unsustainable intensification while realizing cassava’s potential for producing higher yields, alleviating hunger and rural poverty and contributing to national economic development,” FAO said. read more

Security Council extends the mandate of joint UNOPCW body on chemical weaponsSecurity Council extends the mandate of joint UNOPCW body on chemical weapons

The Security Council has extended, for an additional year, the mandate of the United Nations-Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) Joint Investigative Mechanism, the body tasked with identifying those behind chemical weapons attacks in the Syrian conflict.Unanimously adopting resolution 2319 (2016) late last night, the 15-member Council also recalled its decision that Syria “shall not use, develop, produce, otherwise acquire, stockpile or retain chemical weapons, or, transfer, directly or indirectly, chemical weapons to other States or non-State actors.” Further in the resolution, the Security Council encouraged the Mechanism to engage with relevant regional States in pursuit of its mandate, including to identify any involvement of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL/Da’esh), the Al-Nusra Front or other non-State actors in the use of chemicals as weapons in Syria.Set up by the Council in 2015, the Mechanism was mandated to identify, to the greatest extent feasible, those involved in the use of toxic chemicals as weapons in Syria. Earlier, a fact-finding mission mandated by the OPCW had determined that a specific incident in the Syrian conflict involved or likely involved the use of toxic chemicals as weapons. read more

Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. In 2014, a study found that the risk of taking strong painkillers containing codeine and other opioids for headaches and backache outweighed the benefits.The American Academy of Neurology said studies showed that half of patients taking opioids for at least three months were still on them five years later.Tramadol was linked to 33 deaths in Northern Ireland in 2015 – more than heroin and cocaine combined.Harry Shapiro of the DrugWise information service has addiction to prescription painkillers a “public health disaster hidden in plain sight”. Dr Cathy Stannard, a specialist in pain management, said it was clear that patients who used opioid drugs for a long time often got little benefit, but suffered all the side-effects.”I am not suggesting somebody who is benefiting has their drugs removed,” she said.”But out of a population who are taking these drugs, the majority are not benefiting and they should be supported to come off these medicines.”The report found that two-thirds of patients prescribed the painkillers, known as Dependence Forming Medicines, were female.Older patients, and those living in the West Midlands and Yorkshire and the Humber were more likely to be prescribed the drugs long term.DFM prescriptions were found to be more common in patients with a cancer or epilepsy diagnosis than in patients without such a diagnosis.The report concluded: “A balance needs to be struck between, on the one hand, ensuring proper access to medicines to relieve suffering and to treat disorders while, on the other hand, avoiding prescribing that might cause harms such as dependence.“The large increase in opioid prescribing needs careful tracking to ensure appropriate prescribing is preserved while, at the same time, caution is exercised to avoid ill-considered long-term prescribing without continuing benefit.” Ant McPartlin, who revealed he had become addicted to the Class C opiate-based painkiller tramadol The use of powerful prescription painkillers has doubled in the last 15 years, according to a report by public health experts.One in 20 people in England is now prescribed potentially addictive opioid painkillers such as codeine and tramadol, the study found.Such drugs are also being prescribed for longer periods of time, which can reduce the benefits and make addiction more likely.The Public Health Research Consortium studied data from 50,000 NHS patients, focusing on those who were prescribed at least one of four types of potentially addictive drugs between 2000 and 2015.In 2015, five per cent of patients were said to be receiving regular prescriptions, double the rate in 2000.Neil Smith, research director at the National Centre for Social Research, told the BBC: “This report highlights that a balance needs to be struck between avoiding prescribing that might lead to dependence or other harms and ensuring proper access to medicines to relieve suffering and treat disorders.”Trends in the extent and duration of opioid prescribing… need close and ongoing monitoring.” Nearly a third of all prescriptions for opiate painkillers across the EU are written in the UK, according to evidence produced last November at the All Party Parliamentary Group for Prescribed Drug Dependence.last_img read more

Raised blood pressure heightens risk of dementia major UCL study findsRaised blood pressure heightens risk of dementia major UCL study finds

Slightly raised blood pressure in middle age could increase the risk of dementia by up to 45 per cent, new research shows.A study of almost 9,000 civil servants found that 50-year-olds with readings of more than 130/80 had a far greater chance of developing the disease in later life.Currently, around seven million Britons whose blood pressure exceeds 140/90 mmHg are recommended by GPs to take medication to control it.But NHS watchdogs are considering bringing the threshold down further, in line with US advice which recommends drugs are taken when levels reach 130/80 mmHg.  Almost half of the adult population in the UK would be eligible for such drugs, if this change was made.The new study, published in the European Heart Journal, suggests that such levels at mid life are enough to significantly increase dementa risk. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Those with systolic blood pressure of 130mmHg or more at the age of 50 had a 45 per cent greater risk of dementia compared with those with lower levels at the same age.Researchers said the danger appears to stem from the amount of time people suffered from high blood pressure, with raised levels aged 50 meaning people were exposed to risks for far longer than if levels were raised in their 60s or 70s.High blood pressure has been linked to mini strokes, damage to the white matter in the brain, and restricted blood supply to the brain, causing mental decline.The research by the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (Inserm) in Paris and University College London tracked participants in the Whitehall II study, who were aged between 35 and 55 in 1985, for 32 years. Professor Archana Singh-Manoux, research professor at INSERM and honorary professor at UCL, who led the research, said: “Our work confirms the detrimental effects of midlife hypertension for risk of dementia, as suggested by previous research. It also suggests that at age 50, the risk of dementia may be increased in people who have raised levels of systolic blood pressure below the threshold commonly used to treat hypertension.”“Our analysis suggests that the importance of mid-life hypertension on brain health is due to the duration of exposure. So we see an increased risk for people with raised blood pressure at age 50, but not 60 or 70, because those with hypertension at age 50 are likely to be ‘exposed’ to this risk for longer.” The average age at which the study participants developed dementia was 75.Researchers stressed that the research was observational.Fellow author Dr Jessica Abell said: “There is considerable discussion on the optimal threshold for the diagnosis of hypertension. There is plenty of evidence to suggest that maintaining a healthy blood pressure in middle age is important for both your heart and your brain later in life. Anyone who is concerned about their blood pressure levels should consult their GP.” read more

SKF Laser Vibrometer offers noncontact vibration measurementSKF Laser Vibrometer offers noncontact vibration measurement

first_imgSKF has launched the SKF Laser Vibrometer MSL-7000, a digital, integrated, single-box vibrometer that has been developed specifically for non-contact vibration measurements. The MSL-7000 offers service engineers an advanced, flexible and robust tool for collecting vibration measurements in a large number of different field applications. The development of the MSL-7000 meets the need of an increasing number of customers who wish to conduct end-of-line noise testing for their products, especially for ‘noise critical’ applications such as fans, electric motors and pumpsThe design is easy to integrate into test set-ups and existing control systems and covers acoustic measurements from 0.2 Hz (for slow rotations) up to 22 kHz. The MSL-7000 can also be used for mobile condition monitoring, together with the SKF Microlog series, where it enables non-contact measurements that could not be taken before, such as measurements on hot surfaces and through glass.“The SKF Laser Vibrometer can help customers who need advanced and flexible vibration measurement, regardless whether they are doing retro-fitted quality inspection or if they are doing vibration measurement in difficult locations”, says Werner Palmetshofer, General Manager Condition Monitoring Centre in Steyr, Austria. The robust and compact, single-unit meter design offers both easy installation and operation and because it employs non-contact measurement the MSL-7000 is significantly less subject to wear, making it an efficient and cost-effective tool. The MSL-7000 was developed to be used on its own for end-of-line inspection or together with SKF condition monitoring products, such as the SKF Microlog family of portable vibration monitoring and data collection instruments, thus offering additional value to all customers. In addition, a package, MSL 7000C, for laptop use with the SKF FPM Software and a mobile data acquisition card is available.last_img read more

Review BrinkReview Brink

first_imgIt’s been a long time coming, but Brink, Bethesda Softworks and Splash Damage’s class-based first-person shooter is finally here. Brink does a lot of interesting new things and happens to be plagued by some annoying quirks, but overall it’s an interesting take on a team-based and movement-heavy shooter. With the proper care and attention it could be a great title.The game is set in the future, aboard a floating city called The Ark that’s been isolated from the rest of the world for over 20 years due to rising sea levels and environmental disaster. The denizens of the Ark are split into two factions: those who want to start looking for other humans in the world and leave the Ark, and those who want to protect the Ark and keep the population there safe from outsiders.AdChoices广告Customization and ClassesAs soon as you get past the opening cut-scene, you have a choice to make. You’re immediately asked to select a faction: will you save the Ark or escape it? Once you’ve made your selection, you can move right into customizing your character. There’s remarkably little you can really do to tweak the look and appearance of your character from the get-go aside from change his face and skin tone, but as you progress through the game you’ll unlock items to wear like masks and new outfits.You can tweak the size and build of your character as well, which plays a role in how you get around in the game (more on that later,) but since you can change it at any time, it’s not really notable when it comes to personalization. When it comes to gameplay however, it’s pretty important.You also get the option to select a voice actor to represent your character, so you get a real choice in how your character sounds to your teammates. Don’t get too thrilled about it though: there are only a handful of voices to choose from, so you’re bound to hear the same voices over and over again. Even so, it’s a nice touch.Once you’ve finished customizing your character, you can head into your character’s options and select your default class, default weapons, and more. You can select any of four classes as your default: soldier, engineer, operative, and medic. Soldiers are your usual gun-toting bruisers, and their special abilities involve explosives, grenades, and heavy ordinance. They can also replenish teammates’ ammo supplies. Engineers can drop turrets, build barricades, and buff teammates’ weapons. Operatives can disguise as the enemy and hack fallen enemies for their team’s locations. Medics, predictably, can heal teammates and revive them when they go down.You can switch between classes at any time at a command post, and different classes are needed for different objectives. You’ll likely find yourself switching classes frequently to complete missions, especially if – as usually happens – everyone else picks a class and sticks with it. Engineers have to build barricades in some places, for example, and operatives have to hack terminals in others – there’s no getting around it, and if your team doesn’t have one of those types, you’ll have to wait to complete the objective until you do.At the same time, the classes don’t have too much distinction in movement or play style between them until you have a special operation to perform, so while there’s nothing special about playing one class over another (except for Medics, who are always in demand) it’s also good to know you won’t be punished for choosing a class you haven’t played often in the past.Movement and GameplayPerhaps the most innovative and fun part of Brink is the movement system, called SMART (Smooth Movement Across Random Terrain.) This is where the size and shape of your character come in. If you’ve picked a particularly bulky bruiser, you’ll get to play with the biggest and baddest guns, but you won’t be able to slide across floors or bounce off walls. If you have a smaller, more light character, you’ll find yourself almost holding down the SMART button to scale walls, jump across gaps, and slide past enemies to shoot them in the back.Since movement is so important in Brink, the SMART system really adds a fun way to get around. You really will feel like you’re standing on top of fences shooting down at your opponents, and pretty quickly you’ll feel pretty good hopping over walls and tumbling to cover while the other team (or the bots, in campaign mode) shoots at you.Brink has some serious RPG elements to it. As you play, you’ll earn experience from killing enemies, completing main and secondary objectives, playing as a team, guarding or defending, and by using your class special ability to help your teammates.As you level up, you’ll get points to spend on weapons, skills, abilities, and even some class-specific traits that are only really good if you prefer one class over the others. On the bright side though, all of the abilities you gain or spend points on stick with you, so you can always use or toggle them at any time: you just have to remember you have them. The game caps out at level 20, and tries to prevent high-level players from dominating low-level ones by keeping them apart in matches.Your persistent character may only get to level up to 20, but the fact that there are so many options, skills, and abilities to choose from will have you rolling different characters to try different traits. Even though you can always switch sides or tweak your character’s size and class, the real reason Brink allows you to roll new characters is to play with the abilities.At the same time, as great as the abilities, RPG elements, and movement are, the core gameplay feels a little unfinished and rough around the edges. Textures load as you approach them, which isn’t a bad thing, but it’s very obvious. The gameplay quickly gets repetitive, and the only way to change it is to switch classes and try a different role. Still, the game looks great while you’re playing it, with plenty of detailed environments and maps.The other big problem is the lack of content. The game just needs more maps, more campaigns, and more areas. The zones are large, which is nice, but by the time you’ve played them all you’re still hungry for more. Similarly, the game has a huge catalog of weapons, but so many of them feel the same that it’s difficult to really justify switching your loadout once you’ve found something you like. A little differentiation, at least in feel, would be great. Thankfully, both of these issues are ones that can be fixed with updates and map packs.Story and WorldThe game’s story is interesting, and the duality between the Resistance and Security is stark, if only in plot. The characters and gameplay don’t really change between factions. The problem with the story is that it feels half-implemented, as if important elements were taken out for the sake of action. You don’t get introduced to many non-player characters that actually play a real role in the game, and the story stops short of making you really care about the cause you’re fighting for.The whole utopia-turned-dystopia idea is a great one, and the combination of an internal rebellion to decide the fate of the Ark along with a deadly plague spreading across its populace are a great foundation to what could have been a much better story. Sadly, it all really serves as set dressing and you don’t really have a vested interest in it, even if you fail the campaigns.That’s a really big shame: the premise of Brink is really compelling, and it feels like the writers behind the game didn’t have the opportunity to flesh out the story as much as they would have liked. Similarly, the character you play isn’t really one of importance: you’re either a member of Security or a member of the Resistance. You get important info through second-hand conversations, but you don’t feel important in any way. That’s a double-edged sword – you won’t feel bad about dying, but you also don’t feel connected to the world.Even so, if you’re in it for the multiplayer, that won’t make much difference: you can jump right in and play the campaigns against other real people. The only real difference between the single player and the multiplayer mode is the order of the campaigns and the cut-scenes between them in the single player mode – and the often-horrible bots that make up the opposing faction.ConclusionBrink was released on May 10th in the US, May 12th in Australia, and May 13th in the EU. Expect to see more players popping online over the coming weeks. That’s a great thing, because Brink is best played as a multi-player game against other opponents. Some may take the approach that while Brink is pretty and has some great ideas, it feels unfinished and will only appeal to hardcore fans. We’d agree that it feels unfinished, but disagree that the game is probably only for fans that love shooters: the heavy emphasis on teamwork (you won’t survive without friends for long,) the sci-fi dystopian backdrop, and the RPG elements make Brink a great game for players of all experience levels, especially people looking for something new and different.Still, the glaring lack of maps, the absence of varying styles of play on those maps, and the half-hearted story make it difficult to be really vested in Brink even if you do play. The game is probably best played on the PC (which is how we reviewed it) so you can make use of dedicated servers with settings that match the way you want to play. If you want a more challenging experience, try a server with friendly-fire on, for example.We had fun playing Brink, and will probably keep at it. You do feel rewarded at the end of a campaign when you’ve leveled your character or earned a few points to spend, but Bethesda and Splash Damage will have to bring some new maps and gameplay modes to the table to make Brink a game that’ll stick around. Brink suffers from the “so much potential” problem. The groundwork is there, and we like it so far, it just feels like the game should have baked a little longer to work out the issues and get some more content strapped on.If you’ve been looking forward to Brink, you likely won’t be disappointed. It’s difficult to tell anyone to run out and grab it right now though – it’ll feel more worth the money when the price comes down a bit, or as soon as Bethesda and Splash Damage announce a new map pack or some DLC for the game.Brink is available for the PC, XBox 360, and PlayStation 3.brink_logobrink_logoBrink-WallpaperBrink-TattoosBrink-SpecOpsBrink-ArkThis article was written using the PC version of the game, provided by Bethesda Softworks.last_img read more

Letting agencies said that a landlord will never choose me in theLetting agencies said that a landlord will never choose me in the

first_img Short URL By Anonymous Anonymous 5,708 Views ‘Letting agencies said that a landlord will never choose me in the rental lottery because I have kids’ Irish landlords are using the rental crisis to discriminate against families with children. Share7 Tweet Email center_img I’VE BEEN LIVING and working in Ireland for more than eight years now. I have a small family: my partner and I, plus our two small children.We are all aware of the rental crisis going on in Dublin, but right now my family is caught in the middle of it. Our landlord has decided to sell the property that we’re currently renting and so we’re now searching for a new home. We’ve been living in the South Dublin area for the past six years.Starting the house huntA few weeks ago our landlady contacted us to tell us that she is about to sell the apartment and won’t be renewing our lease. That’s completely her right and this isn’t the issue I’m trying to highlight here.When I started the flat hunt, I soon found that rent prices have increased dramatically since I was looking the last time. Now the average rent in this area of Dublin is €1,800 a month for a two-bed apartment.I sent off several applications by email and by phone. I got a text reply from one landlord saying that there is a stairwell in the property so it wouldn’t be suitable for children. That’s so ridiculous. My children would be well able to manage a stairs.Blatant discrimination Source: Shutterstock/Alexandru MarianAnother property was advertised as being 100 square metres. The advertisement also claimed that it was a very “spacious” apartment, with two “big” bedroom and a “large, spacious” kitchen. I phoned up to enquire about it.The woman who answered said that the apartment would be suitable for a family. However she wasn’t the owner and said that she would call me back in a bit to let me know if I was successful.A few hours later she emailed me to say that the landlady wasn’t happy about renting her place to four people. She claimed that it would only be suitable for three adults. I tried to argue that my family is made up of two adults and two young children, and that basically that should equal three adults. She maintained that it would be too small for us. It was clear that she didn’t want a family with children in the house.I’ve been told by quite a few agencies that a landlord will never choose my family in the rental lottery because we have kids. I have had the following conversation more than once:“Ah, you have kids? Don’t even bother to apply”.“Sorry, children are not allowed in the apartment”.“This place is not suitable for kids”.I have written proof of this. There’s never a stipulation against children in the listing. The refusals are always casual, like it’s just their preference.Young families need homes too and not just outside commuter beltI believe this problem has never highlighted enough in any article about the Irish rental crisis. We often hear about rising rents, security of tenure etcetera, but never about the obstacles that young families face when they try to find somewhere to live.My children are enrolled in local schools. Obviously we have to stick to the area so that we can give them stability in their little lives. Or do I have to change my children’s schools because nobody wants to rent their place out to a family? How is it fair that I have to move outside the commuter belt just because I have kids?We still haven’t found a new home. We’re hoping to find something soon and I keep on applying for every vacancy that comes up. I am getting worried about finding a place though, as there aren’t many affordable flats in my area and my lease is expiring soon.I understand the free market and I understand the rent crisis. What I don’t understand, and what has totally shocked me, is how Irish landlords are against renting their house to a family with kids.The author of this piece has asked to remain anonymous as he continues to hunt for a new family home.These are the 23 towns where rent caps will be extended to from midnight>Landlords rapped on the knuckles for threatening new charges after rent caps> 45 Comments Feb 9th 2017, 6:30 AM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Thursday 9 Feb 2017, 6:30 AMlast_img read more

Obama health adviser Gruber apologizes for remarksObama health adviser Gruber apologizes for remarks

first_imgWASHINGTON — MIT economist Jonathan Gruber — an often-quoted adviser on the president’s health care law — told Congress on Tuesday he was glib and “inexcusably arrogant” when he said it was “the stupidity of the American voter” that led to the law’s passage. Democrats tried to limit the damage as Republicans raked Gruber at a four-hour hearing, but acknowledged he gave the GOP a political gift “wrapped in a bow.”Gruber told groups in 2012 and 2013 that voter stupidity and a “lack of transparency” were important to passing the hard-fought legislation. Appearing before the House Oversight committee Tuesday, Gruber expanded on earlier apologies, repeatedly saying “I was conjecturing in areas beyond my expertise.”Enduring one fierce lecture after another, Gruber said his earlier comments were uninformed, “glib, thoughtless and sometimes downright insulting.” He said he was showing off before various groups, and “trying to be something, I’m not, which was a political expert.”He said the law’s passage was actually transparent and heavily debated in public, despite his earlier comments. And Gruber said he was not the “architect” of the law, as some press accounts had claimed.But Republican Committee Chairman Darrell Issa of California called Gruber a crucial player in the legislation. Issa grilled Gruber repeatedly in what might be his last committee probe of what he calls “Obamacare.” Republican term limits will force Issa — whose bare-knuckled attacks on administration programs sometimes annoy GOP leaders — to surrender the committee chairmanship in the next Congress.last_img read more

Gimenez opposes Florida bill dissolving MDX says county cant afford proposed tollGimenez opposes Florida bill dissolving MDX says county cant afford proposed toll

first_imgMIAMI (WSVN) – The fight over the fate of the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority is taking a toll on the county’s mayor.Mayor Carlos Gimenez said he wants to stop a bill, passed by the Florida House last week, dissolving the agency.Speaking with 7News on Monday, Gimenez said his proposal for Miami-Dade County can help the entire state.“I think that the state should take notice that we’re a bellwether kind of county,” he said. “Tolling is an issue here, but it’s gonna be an issue in Central Florida, it’s gonna be an issue in Tampa, it’s gonna be an issue everywhere around the state. Ninety-five percent of all new roads built by the state are toll roads. It’s going to become an issue.”If the bill passes, current MDX toll rates will be frozen, and new higher rebates would be issued for drivers who use the toll roads frequently.The mayor’s office argues the county cannot afford both the new toll rebate program and the just-approved billion-dollar expansion of the Dolphin Expressway.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Tata Steel to hold talks with British trade unionsTata Steel to hold talks with British trade unions

first_imgTata Steel will hold talks with trade union representatives of its UK steelworks in a bid to settle the deadlock over a pension scheme for its workers. The scheme, which is worth over £15 billion, is the main road block in its merger with its German rival, ThyssenKrupp.Tata Steel has called for talks over a two-day period to try and secure the merger of its European operations with that of ThyssenKrupp. The German engineering conglomerate and Tata have held talks on combining their European steel operations.Britain voted to leave the European Union in June, which raised concerns about the future of the country’s steel industry that is under prolonged and serious pressure. It was being speculated that Tata Steel would put the sale on hold.However, it is now believed that Tata Steel and ThyssenKrupp could formalise the deal within weeks, even if the pension issue is not resolved, but the tie-up would be subjected to change on resolving the pension dispute.The UK government, under the leadership of the former Prime Minister David Cameron, had proposed a change in law to reduce payouts by altering the inflation link for rises. But the Theresa May-led government is not in favour of the plan.In a statement, Tata Steel said that it “continues to responsibly develop options to identify the best prospects for the future sustainability of our UK operations and the best outcome for members of the British Steel Pension Scheme.”The Tata Steel stock was trading at Rs 373.95 at around 12 pm on Monday, up 0.55 percent from its previous close on the Bombay Stock Exchange.last_img read more

Suu Kyi Myanmar face chorus of anger over violence against RohingyasSuu Kyi Myanmar face chorus of anger over violence against Rohingyas

first_imgRohingya refugees walk on the muddy path after crossing the Bangladesh-Myanmar border in Teknaf. ReutersNobel peace laureate Malala Yousafzai and Muslim countries in Asia led a growing chorus of criticism on Monday aimed at Myanmar and its civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi over the plight of its Rohingya Muslim minority.Nearly 90,000 Rohingya have flooded into Bangladesh in the past 10 days following an uptick in fighting between militants and Myanmar’s military in strife-torn western Rakhine state.The impoverished region bordering Bangladesh has been a crucible of communal tensions between Muslims and Buddhists for years, with the Rohingya forced to live under apartheid-like restrictions on movement and citizenship.The recent violence, which kicked off last October when a small Rohingya militant group ambushed border posts, is the worst Rakhine has witnessed in years with the UN saying Myanmar’s army may have committed ethnic cleansing in its response.De facto leader Suu Kyi, a former political prisoner of Myanmar’s junta, has come under increasing fire over her perceived unwillingness to speak out against the treatment of the Rohingya or chastise the military.She has made no public comment since the latest fighting broke out.“Every time I see the news, my heart breaks at the suffering of the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar,” Pakistani activist Yousafzai, who famously survived being shot in the head by the Taliban, said in a statement on Twitter.“Over the last several years I have repeatedly condemned this tragic and shameful treatment. I am still waiting for my fellow Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi to do the same,” she added.Pakistani politician and former cricketer Imran Khan added: “Shameful acceptance of Rohingyas genocide by Aung San Suu Kyi.”Muslim neighbours riledThe growing crisis threatens Myanmar’s diplomatic relations, particularly with Muslim-majority countries in Southeast Asia where there is profound public anger over the treatment of the Rohingya.Indonesia’s foreign minister Retno Marsudi met Myanmar’s army chief General Min Aung Hlaing in Naypyidaw on Monday in a bid to pressure the government to do more to alleviate the crisis.“Once again, violence, this humanitarian crisis has to stop immediately,” Indonesian president Joko Widodo told reporters on Sunday as he announced Retno’s mission there.Hours before Widodo spoke, a petrol bomb was thrown at Myanmar’s embassy in Jakarta while police there have previously dismantled two attempts by Islamist militants to bomb the compound.Dozens demonstrated in front of the embassy on Monday, where armed police were deployed and the mission cordoned off behind barbed wire.Pakistan’s foreign ministry released a statement saying it was “deeply concerned over reports of growing number of deaths and forced displacement of Rohingya Muslims” and urged Myanmar to investigate reports of atrocities against the community.Muslim-majority Malaysia has also seen public protests since the latest round of Rakhine violence began.“We urge for calm and restraint,” Prime Minister Najib Razak tweeted. “The dire situation facing our Rohingya brothers and sisters must be alleviated for good of Myanmar and region.”Despite years of persecution, the Rohingya largely eschewed violence until October’s attacks by the little-known Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army.Analysts have long warned that Myanmar’s treatment of the Rohingya would lead to homegrown militancy as well as support from international jihadists.Since the latest fighting broke out, Al-Qaeda’s offshoot in Yemen has called for retaliatory attacks against Myanmar while the Afghan Taliban posted a statement on Facebook calling on Muslims to “use their abilities to help Myanmar’s oppressed Muslims”.Defenders of Suu Kyi say she is severely limited in her ability to control Myanmar’s notoriously abusive military.While her party won a landslide election in 2015, under Myanmar’s junta era constitution the army is effectively independent of any civilian oversight.The Rohingya are also widely loathed by a huge section of Myanmar’s population, dismissed as Bangladeshi interlopers despite many tracing their lineage back generations.That makes supporting them hugely unpopular.But detractors say Suu Kyi is one of the few people in Myanmar with the mass appeal and moral authority to swim against the tide on the issue.last_img read more

Immigration Attorneys Advocates React To Texas AGs Federal DACA LawsuitImmigration Attorneys Advocates React To Texas AGs Federal DACA Lawsuit

first_imgPaxton threatened to sue the Trump administration if it did not end the DACA program. He said the program was not created by Congress and therefore should be declared unconstitutional.Lance Curtright, a San Antonio immigration attorney, said it is easy to see why DACA recipients and their families feel under attack.“I think it will further solidify the notion that there is a major political movement against DACA recipients and their families. It all just kind of cumulates into this feeling that they’re not wanted, that they’re targeted,” Curtright said.And Curtright believes the lawsuit will also engender more fear and anxiety among DACA recipients, like Melissa Garcia, who was brought to the U.S. legally by her parents, who were in the country on a tourist visa. Garcia remained in the country illegally after the visa expired and enrolled in DACA when the program first began in 2012.  “I recently put in my renewal a couple of weeks ago, and I just recently got my biometrics appointment this following Monday; you know — go in and do all my fingerprinting before someone actually looks at my case, and it kind of puts me in a place where I actually get nervous,” Garcia said.The federal DACA program was created to provide work authorization and protection against deportation for someone who was brought into the U.S. illegally.A federal court in Washington D.C. blocked President Trump’s efforts to end DACA if Congress could not come up with a more permanent program on its own.Garcia, a nervous as she is, said she’s given up on Congress finding a permanent DACA solution.“There was a time where there was no DACA and I was fine. I was making it work. So I think if DACA is one day not here anymore and I’m not, I don’t know, not allowed to live in the U.S. anymore, I think I’ll figure it out,” Garcia said.And Garcia is not alone. Immigration attorneys believe many DACA recipients fear they will be separated from their families if the federal program ends.  Paxton also filed a preliminary injunction Wednesday to stop the federal government from issuing or renewing any DACA applications while the lawsuit is pending. Immigration attorneys and recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program are lashing back at Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton the day after he filed a federal lawsuit in Brownsville to kill the Obama-era program.

These 8 Mobile Apps Multiply How Much You Can Get Done EveryThese 8 Mobile Apps Multiply How Much You Can Get Done Every

first_img Serving as the head of a company can be enormously rewarding, and not because it’s easy. Staying on top of every facet of operations and spearheading expansion efforts while leading and inspiring others can feel like a 24-hour-a-day job. Successful executives seek out and take advantage of the necessary tools to help themselves, their team and their company succeed.Some of the simplest and most compelling resources available to entrepreneurs today fit into the palm of your hand and are inexpensive or free. Mobile applications, or apps, provide convenient tools to lead a company while maintaining your sanity.Related: 13 Business Productivity Apps for the Real-World EntrepreneurHow apps make an executive’s job more manageable. As a company head, sometimes you can barely keep your head up with all the hats you have to wear. Although delegation is an essential part of being a CEO, some responsibilities simply must be handled by you each day.Because it’s impossible to increase the number of hours at your disposal, productivity tools such as apps are crucial to efficiently and effectively managing numerous aspects of their jobs:Managing employees. Maintaining consistent and frequent communication with direct reports can be challenging, especially when you travel or sit in multiple meetings on a daily basis. Apps keep conversations going, even when you’re on the run.Staying on top of budgets. Mobile apps quickly do the number-crunching and budget analytics necessary to organize and present the information you need to make business decisions, pitches and presentations.Overseeing projects. Projects can be a “many-headed monster,” but certain apps encapsulate them in a pocket-sized device to keep them at your fingertips.There are many apps available to streamline and improve business processes but for the particular needs of CEOs, the most useful Android and iOS apps include:1. EverNote. The constant flood of information CEOs receive each day becomes more manageable with this highly useful app. It serves as a multi-device storage facility for all that data you encounter and may need to remember, from meeting notes to to-do lists and audio reminders. Its synchronization and search functions make it a must for plugged-in professionals.Related: 5 Habits of Productivity App Super Users2. DropBox Mailbox. An inbox stuffed with hundreds of emails can make the most confident professional feel overwhelmed. With this app from DropBox, users can move toward the goal of “inbox zero” by prioritizing more urgent emails over ones they can look at later. Executives should be careful, however. According to Randy McInnis at, both Dropbox and Microsoft are predicted to experience data leakage in the next 12 months.3. XMind. If you’ve heard of “mind mapping” or are curious about how it can help you as a professional, this app can show you how it’s done. Users enjoy its search, spell checker, import/export, encryption, file attachment and other features, which help them organize their brainstorms and apply their ideas more effectively.4. LinkedIn. Every successful executive understands the importance of networking to build and maintain a strong reputation. The popular professional networking site now offers an app through which CEOs can access their connections on the go, read posts by industry leaders, publish their own articles and remain apprised of what’s happening in the business arena.5. Hightail. Executives who give, attend or view presentations frequently will love this app, which translates seamlessly from mobile to desktop use. Creative and on-the-go professionals use it to review and annotate presentations from wherever they are currently working.6. Dragon Dictation. Available only on iOS, this app uses the device’s existing voice recognition capabilities to transcribe messages, notes or reminders without your having to rely on a keyboard. Because talking can occur up to five times faster than typing, users enjoy exponentially higher productivity when discussing everything from the content of speeches to grocery lists.7. Binfire. Managing projects is often a complex and demanding undertaking, but this app makes it easier. By providing a central space in which CEOs can gather calendars, task lists, documents, analytics and collaborative tools, it creates more room for creativity to flow and plans to be implemented. Its security features make it usable for even the most sensitive projects.8. Siri. Not all executives have their own personal assistant, but the iPhone’s “personal virtual assistant” acts as a concierge of sorts to help users get what they need. From carrying out virtual tasks to performing online information searches or locating the correct app, Siri is an indispensable feature for many iOS users.Although an app can’t run your company for you (and you certainly wouldn’t let it!), one or more of these virtual tools can free up time, energy and head space to help you become a more effective leader.Related: 6 Productivity Apps for the Entrepreneur on the Go October 1, 2014 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.
