18 February 2008The United Nations, together with the Government of Tajikistan, today appealed for $25 million to help humanitarian agencies provide adequate food, water, heat and health care during the most severe winter the country has seen in nearly three decades. According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), hydroelectric power stations – the country’s main source of energy – are barely producing any electricity, leading to a major disruption in basic services such as heating and water supplies. It is estimated that they will be operating at 40 per cent capacity until spring.“Such a rapid loss of power in winter on this scale is unprecedented,” said Michael Jones, UN Resident Coordinator for Tajikistan. “In the capital city, residents only have electricity for 10 hours per day, leaving them without heat and water for the majority of the time.” The extreme cold, coupled with the energy crisis, have also impacted the food security situation in rural areas, with aid agencies reporting that more than 500,000 people may face food shortages, and at least 260,000 people are in need of immediate food assistance. If limited food and fuel supplies in rural areas are not replenished, the Government estimates that up to two million people may require food aid through the end of the winter.OCHA also warns that the unusually heavy snowfall will likely cause flooding and landslides once spring arrives. Therefore, the appeal also includes provisions to assist communities in the event of such situations. “We are going to need a great deal of support from the international community if we are to meet the needs of the Tajik people now and over the coming months,” said Mr. Jones.
In his briefing to the Council, Assistant Secretary-General for UN Peacekeeping Operations Edmond Mulet said operations against the non-signatory armed movements, implemented by the Sudanese Government, which involved a series of violent ground clashes and aerial bombardment, had led to over 104,000 newly confirmed displacements, as well as 69,000 unconfirmed cases. He went on to say that there had been “no pause in inter-communal conflicts, which remains a major source of instability,” resulting in approximately one third of all conflict-related fatalities and forty per cent of displacement so far this year.Mr. Mulet noted that the disputes have been further exacerbated by the involvement of local armed groups in counter-insurgency operations against the armed movements, their access to weapons, continued local influence and widespread impunity for their attacks against other tribes and other criminal activities.The UN official added that the Government of Sudan, particularly at the state level, has attempted to contain the violence through the swift deployment of security forces across Darfur, and the organization of inter-communal mediation conferences for the cessation of hostilities.“However, the underlying causes of these conflicts, related to the use and management of resources and impunity of actors involved in the violence, remain unaddressed,” said Mr. Mulet.He further noted that following the decrees provided by the Government, a two-month cessation of hostilities in Darfur, Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile states and an unconditional pardon to members of the Sudanese political and armed opposition who decide to participate in the National Dialogue process, the Sudan Revolutionary Front declared its own six-month cessation of hostilities in Darfur and the Two Areas in accordance with its roadmap of 14 September.The roadmap, Mr. Mulet explained, provides for the protection of civilians, unhindered humanitarian access and the creation of a conducive environment for peace talks and the National Dialogue.Further, he said that President Omar al-Bashir has highlighted his Government’s readiness to engage in discussions on a permanent ceasefire with the armed movements.However, the UN official said that the Sudanese political and armed opposition reiterated their boycott of the process in the absence of a conducive environment for a genuine dialogue but expressed their willingness to participate in a pre-dialogue meeting in Addis Ababa under the auspices of the African Union High-level Implementation Panel (AUHIP).“The AUHIP meeting on the National Dialogue followed by cessation of hostilities talks on Darfur and the Two Areas, which were initially scheduled for next week, are now expected to take place, respectively, in Addis Ababa on 16 to 17 and 18 to 19 November,” said Mr. Mulet.He also reiterated the difficulties faced by African Union-United Nations Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) and humanitarian actors in the region as the Government continues to restrict their air and ground movement, primarily to conflict areas citing security concerns.“Delays and denials of customs clearances for UNAMID containers, including food rations, and visas for staff by the Government have threatened to significantly undermine mandate implementation efforts,” said Mr. Mulet.“I would like to urge the Government of Sudan to maintain its current cooperation in ensuring the swift clearance of UNAMID food rations and their delivery to the Mission,” he added.Mr. Mulet further called upon the Government to lift all existing restrictions on the free movement of its personnel and assets, particularly with regard to access to conflict areas and, importantly, the issuance of visas, consistent with the provisions of the UNAMID Status-of-Forces Agreement. He also reported of an increase in attacks against UNAMID and its personnel, including the killing of a South African peacekeeper by an armed group north of Mellit, Darfur, on 27 September.“Despite these considerable obstacles, UNAMID remained steadfast in the implementation of its strategic priorities and addressing key challenges to mandate implementation,” said Mr. Mulet.“The Mission also focused its efforts on developing early warning capacity and other preventive measures with local stakeholders, promoting dialogue between farming and pastoral communities and supporting local institutions to address the root causes of conflict, in collaboration with the United Nations Country Team,” he added.Lastly, Mr. Mulet also said that UNAMID and the UN Country Team are continuing their work on developing an operational plan for the gradual and phased transfer of tasks to the latter, outlining which tasks will be conducted jointly or transferred and the requisite budgetary requirements, in accordance with Council resolutions 2173 (2014) and 2228 (2015).“The initial phases of the process are expected to focus on capacity-building of sexual and gender-based violence prevention mechanisms, and joint activities in the police, justice and corrections sector,” concluded Mr. Mulet.
He recalled that at this time last year, he had come to New York for the general debate directly from the port city of Aden, then Yemen’s interim capital, and had citied the promise of the return to legitimacy months after a coup against State institutions by Houthi militias had plunged Yemen in to a “meaningless war,” that ripped apart its social fabric and wrecked its economic, financial and infrastructure assets. “Today, I speak to you as the State leadership that runs the country, despite all the challenges, with [the Government] in full force,” operating the liberated Governorates, he said, stressing that: “The destructive scheme led by Iran through its mercenaries in Yemen stands no chance of succeeding.” He recalled that in the war, “we did not fire the first shot […] and we have long called for putting an end to all the tragedies that have destroyed [out country] for the last 50 years as a result of corrupt governments and selfish control of national wealth and State power” and side-lining of certain parts of the country.Mr. Mansour said all this had led to the eruption of tension and the popular protests in the country two years ago, and then, as now, “Iran impeded all measures that we are taking” to implement UN resolutions and the initiatives set out by the Gulf Cooperation Council.“Today, we are enduring the outcome of the reckless practices of [the Houthi militias], which have turned everything upside down,” he stressed, and added that even after pressing ahead with a legitimate transition that had led, among others, to the drafting of a new federal constitution, the coup leaders stepped up their attacks against the State. “This war is not our choice. It was imposed,” he declared. “We are not advocates of revenge. Rather we would extend our hand towards the building of a new Yemen, despite all the damage wrought by the coup enterprise. We continue to see [the coup alliance] as Yemenis and we cannot confiscate their right to a better future,” he said, stressing that he aim of the Government is to secure a better way of life for all Yemenis. The Government has called on the rebels to demonstrate their loyalty to their homeland more than once, he said, stressing that the peaceful future the Government seeks for Yemen will not stand for militias and “sectarian gangs” exercising control over State assets or terrorizing the country and the wider region Gulf region. Armed militias must withdraw and surrender their weapons and control of agencies, and then complete the political process by endorsing the new draft constitution and moving on to elections. Denouncing the spread of terrorism in Yemen and the regions, which he said is sponsored by Iran, President Mansour urged stepped up measures to eradicate the scourge, which continued to plague the country. The Houthi coup d’état had left a security vacuum, economic collapse and extreme poverty. The militias had recruited children, besieged cities and waged a meaningless war against the Yemeni people, whose suffering had reached unbelievable levels with regard to health, education and other services.“We might fail to pay the salaries of people working in public service,” he said, calling for support from the “free world” and its financial institutions. Acknowledging the catastrophic situation in Yemen, he renewed his call on all donor countries to fulfil their pledges to ensure desperately-need humanitarian aid reaches all governorates and to end the suffering of the Yemeni people. The country would emerge from the ruins with international support, and the Government would not stop until the militias were defeated, he vowed.
Two years ago, Iran and the so-called ‘E3+3’ or ‘P5+1’ – composed of China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States – reached an agreement, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which was endorsed by the Security Council.“The JCPOA was a major achievement in the area of nuclear non-proliferation,” said Mr. Guterres in his statement issued overnight. “It gives us all hope that the most complex issues in this domain can be addressed through dialogue, understanding and cooperation,” he added. He welcomed the recent recommitment expressed by the JCPOA stakeholders on 25 April to the full and effective implementation of the Plan, and called on them to continue to work together in good faith and reciprocity. “Their sustained commitment is essential for the long-term viability and success of the agreement,” he said, also calling on all Member States to support further pursuit of this historic agreement and pledging that he will do the same. “It is in the interest of the international community that this achievement of multilateral diplomacy endures transitions and implementation challenges cementing our collective commitment to diplomacy and dialogue,” he stressed.
Gabby Douglas (@gabbycvdouglas/Instagram)After facing a barrage of online criticism and harassment during the 2016 Olympic Games, gymnast Gabby Douglas is finally speaking out.The three-time gold medalist, who was heavily criticized about her hair at the 2012 Beijing Olympics, faced similar condemnation this year along with accusations of a lack of patriotism and poor sportsmanship. For Douglas, the recrimination was hurtful.“I had [to] take off social media before the Olympics,” Douglas told Teen Vouge on Facebook Live Wednesday, Dec. 21. “Then, after team finals in Rio, I Googled myself and there was just so much noise. First, it started with me not having my hand over my heart, then my hair, then me not being supportive. I was like, ‘Oh my God, I have no idea where this is coming from.’ It was hard.”Online commenters reignited the 2012 fury over Douglas’ hair during the Games in Rio De Janerio, Brazil, in August. One person proclaimed the 20-year-old’s tresses “makes me so mad.”Then, Douglas stood at attention during the national anthem but didn’t place her hand over her heart like the rest of her Final Five teammates. In reaction, a Twitter user deemed Douglas a “sorry American.” Finally, when teammate Simone Biles won gold in the women’s individual all-around, Twitter took aim at Douglas for allegedly feeling salty over the triumph.“Every single day, I’d come back to the village after every single training practice and I literally bawled my eyes out,” Douglas said. “I would cry and cry and cry because people were being so mean.”The judgment visibly took a toll on the gymnast towards the end of the Olympics, when USA Today reported Douglas seemed to be holding back tears as she scrolled through her phone.Douglas also addressed criticism about her serious demeanor during the 2016 Games, noting she had simply grown up since she last competed in the Olympics at age 16.“Going from 2012, I was this smiley, bubbly Gabby,” she explained. “And in 2014 to 2016, I was like, ‘I’ll be a little more mature, a little more sass.’ And everyone was like, ‘What’s wrong with her? She’s not smiling, something’s wrong.’ And I’m like, ‘No, this is mature Gabby.’ I love to laugh, there’s nothing wrong with that. Just don’t put me in a category, you know? Let me do what I need to do out on the floor.”Douglas has advice for other people who have dealt with cyberbullying: Don’t change.“There’s [sic] people out there that love you guys and your life is very important and very valuable,” she said. “Always be strong and you can overcome it, you really can.”

Police hunting two pensioners suspected of stealing a huge portrait of Steve McQueen – one who made her getaway on a walking frame – have dubbed the crime the “Great Escape”.The women stole the 6ft x 4ft black and white picture from the bar of a new hotel named after one of McQueen’s most iconic films – Bullitt.But the theft ultimately failed because the artwork was too big to fit in the women’s car, according to the hotel manager.Police said the suspects were in their late-60s and both had shoulder-length blonde hair and were wearing glasses.Officers said one was wearing a zebra print jacket and the pensioner who carried the portrait out of the hotel was using a walking aid. The incident happened at the Bullitt hotel in Belfast at shortly after 8pm on Sunday evening. The establishment had only opened to the public the day before.The picture was later recovered, with some damage, beside Tedfords restaurant on nearby Donegall Quay.On a Facebook post about the crime, the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) used the following hashtags – #notjustanysunday #KeepingPortraitsSafe #thenotsomagnificenttwo #stevemcqueen #thegreatescape. The stolen painting was found a short distance from the Bullitt hotel, in BelfastPolice have appealed for any witnesses to come forward. Michael Sullivan, general manager at Bullitt Belfast, said he was glad the artwork had been recovered.”It wasn’t quite the Great Escape it’s been billed as though – the unlikely perpetrators were foiled in their attempts when they couldn’t fit the painting in their vehicle,” he added.”We are most grateful for the vigilance of our neighbours at Tedfords Kitchen for their assistance in returning the painting.” Steve McQueen in 1968 film BullittCredit:Everett Collection / Rex Feature
“How is it that I’ve lived 49 years on this planet but never been to the Greek Islands before. So beautiful. Yassou Mykonos I will return,” exclaimed Australian actor Russell Crowe on twitter this week.On a recent trip to the Cycladic island, the actor was taken aback by the beauty of the Mediterranean wondering how he nearly reached 50 years of age without catching sight of the natural wonder. He even wore a t-shirt with the word ‘Greece’ emblazoned on it as he drove around on a quad exploring the island with his friends. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram
You don’t need a special kind of beer to get drunk in the shower. But if someone has gone through the trouble to brew one specifically for that purpose it seems rude not to.Who dreamed up this improbable libation? Creative types at Snask, an advertising agency based in Stockholm, teamed up with Sweden’s Pang Pang Brewery.The result of their collaboration is called Shower Beer, because when you’re heading to the shower, there’s no time to hunt around the fridge for the right beer to take along. It’s got to jump out at you, and clearly, the one that says Shower Beer on the bottle is the one you’re going to reach for.The inevitable result of pounding one too many Shower Beers in the shower.What makes Shower Beer special? Not necessarily the beer itself, though feedback from people who sampled the first batch of this pale ale was certainly positive.The bottle itself is one thing. At just 6 ounces, it’s just over half the size of a Red Stripe stubby. Why so small? It’s so you can drink it before it has time to warm up in the shower, of course! Six ounces means you can down a Shower Beer in three swigs, says Pang Pang.The other thing is the 10% alcohol content. Shower Beer packs quite a punch, so even though you’re drinking a relatively small amount you’re not giving any of the buzz you’d get from a more standard beer in a more standard bottle.While this particular Shower Beer might not be available stateside, there is a Shower Beer you might be able to get your hands on. Champion Brewing in Charlottesville, Virginia makes one. It’s a Czech-style pilsner in a 12-ounce can with an ABV of 4.5%.It’s rated quite highly on Beer Advocate, and you can drink it in the shower, too. At least I assume so. Champion doesn’t say you can’t on their website or anything…
With Karim Benzema injured for the next month at least, it’s time for Mariano Diaz to step up and earn that spot he always wanted at Real Madrid.The most recent results from Real Madrid in all competitions have been extremely worrying, the lack of goals point directly at Karim Benzema and Mariano Diaz needs to take advantage of the Frenchman’s new injury during the club’s next two matches.According to a report from Real Madrid’s official website, Karim has suffered a hamstring injury that will keep him out of competition for at least two weeks.This means that Mariano Diaz will have the opportunity to play Los Blancos’ next two matches against Levante in La Liga and Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League, a unique opportunity that chance has given the Dominican striker to take Benzema’s place for El Clasico that will take place at the Camp Nou by the end of October.A crucial match that is happening a bit sooner than we are used to, as it used to take place in December in previous years but La Liga’s new schedules have programmed it like this.Mariano is eager to get those two chances by manager Julen Lopetegui, who for some reason hasn’t used his most recent transfer as he maybe should’ve because Karim Benzema had a privileged position in the squad.Estamos listos, podemos hacerlo, juntos a por la victoria #HastaElFinalVamosReal pic.twitter.com/XAdh6hTdiv— Mariano Díaz Mejía (@marianodiaz7) October 6, 2018The French striker started the season with all his might, he scored five goals in the first four matches in all competitions and made us all believe that we were about to experience a new Karim Benzema.However, the striker soon went back to his old ways and started being completely irrelevant in the most important matches of the season.Karim’s low form has been a major reason why Los Blancos haven’t really performed lately, they strictly depend on his and Gareth Bale’s goals now that Cristiano Ronaldo is gone and he has let everyone down.With this new injury he just picked up, it’s Mariano’s golden chance to prove to Lopetegui that he can be the top scorer in the squad.It all depends on him, the man has been getting ready for this chance and it’s highly unlikely that he will let it pass that easily.Mourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.Mariano left Lyon with the sole reason to become Real Madrid’s top offensive player, but he has been frustrated with the lack of opportunities that manager Julen Lopetegui has given him since he arrived.Listo para otra jornada de #Champions 💪 Esta noche nos espera el @pfc_cska #UCL#HalaMadrid pic.twitter.com/Qp6cTseVNS— Mariano Díaz Mejía (@marianodiaz7) October 2, 2018In fact, there have even been reports of the Dominican striker being really angry towards the manager.When Mariano Diaz had a verbal agreement to play with Sevilla this season, it was Julen Lopetegui the one who convinced him to break that deal and play for Real Madrid.The Spanish manager promised him to have a titular role in the squad, a promise that Julen never honored with the player so far and this is what has Mariano very disappointed with the boss.His anger grows even further because the squad is getting poor results lately, and the manager had to get the news of an injured Karim Benzema in order to start looking at the Dominican striker as the option he had left.But the player wants to prove his worth regardless of how they have treated him, he knows that playing his best football will be more than enough to change Lopetegui’s mind, and leave Kari Benzema on the bench once and for all.The French player has always enjoyed a privileged position in the team, even during the times when he hasn’t been at his best like right now. But Mariano wants to change that for good, he believes the next two matches are his best opportunity yet.💪⚽ Our preparations for Saturday’s trip to @Alaves are underway! #RMCity pic.twitter.com/Oca1Jzsulg— Real Madrid C.F. 🇬🇧🇺🇸 (@realmadriden) October 4, 2018Do you think Mariano can change Julen Lopetegui’s mind and take the starring role from Karim Benzema as Real Madrid’s main striker? Please share your opinion in the comment section down below.

A look at KDE Neon – a minimal mini-distribution by Mike Turcotte-McCusker on March 09, 2018 in Linux – 14 commentsSo, with the news of Linux Mint no longer providing KDE in future releases, some people have started to wonder where they might turn should the need / desire to change distributions in the future arises; granted you don’t have to leave LM-KDE at all if you don’t want, there will just be no more ISO’s being made, etc.A little while ago, the suggestion had been made that I write up an overview for KDE Neon, and I thought this might be the perfect time to showcase it.The machine I am using has the following specs:Intel i5-4210U8GB DDR3SSDIntel HD 4400Dual monitor (Laptop + HDMI to TV)InstallationThere isn’t really much to say about installing KDE Neon, other than since it uses Ubuntu 16.04 LTS as its base, if you’ve installed Ubuntu, or Linux Mint; than you’ll be just fine…It’s the same installation software. It was simple, quick, and effective as it should be, and ran without issue.Under the hoodKDE Neon isn’t your typical distribution, where everything is installed for you, as much as it’s not quite as hardcore as Arch Linux or Gentoo either.Once installed, KDE Neon leaves you with a nearly empty system, simply running the latest KDE packages. The purpose of KDE Neon, is simply that, to give you the absolute latest and greatest of KDE. What you do beyond that, is your call. You’ll find very little preinstalled applications, only the essentials.However, again, KDE Neon uses Ubuntu 16.04 as its base, and with that comes the Ubuntu repositories, the ability to use PPA’s, .deb files, as well as Snaps and Flatpaks.Installing software can be done via CLI as per usual using apt, and there is also the inclusion of a software manager called “Discover.”Now, I can’t say I dislike Discover, but I will note that while it does automatically install a Flatpak and Snap backend support, you can’t actually search for them through Discover.An example: searching for Spotify found nothing, but typing: sudo snap spotify, installed just fine via terminal. With that said, Discover isn’t half bad for just using apt in the more traditional ways GNU/Linux users are accustomed to.Issues I foundSadly, the lack of big features in Discover isn’t the only issue I did have while using the system, where twice I had issues with screens hanging and having to end the process. Granted, this was after first install, and before running any updates; and I have (so far at the time of writing this) had no issues further thus far.Last wordsOverall, KDE Neon is great for minimalists who want to populate their system with packages and applications themselves, rather than deal with the potential bloat of many common distributions. The downside, is that users who want a fully working, prepackaged distro that they can just install and go, will likely find KDE Neon too much for them.As a whole however, the system runs nicely, using Ubuntu as the base has its obvious benefits and caveats just like other popular Ubuntu based systems; but if you’re looking for the latest and greatest KDE packages from upstream, and you don’t mind (or prefer) building your system up yourself a bit, give Neon a peek.Now you: What’s your favourite KDE GNU/Linux OS, and why?SummaryArticle NameA look at KDE Neon – a minimal mini-distributionDescriptionA little while ago, the suggestion had been made that I write up an overview for KDE Neon, and I thought this might be the perfect time to showcase it.Author Mike TurcottePublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisement

New CrystaLine imaging technology contains several workflow enhancements to help clinicians efficiently and effectively manage their increased workload.XView+ and CPI are two CrystaLine features that enhance diagnostic confidence and improve clinical workflow by increasing image clarity across patient populations, from obese to pediatric. XView+ is a unique speckle reduction algorithm that provides multiple levels of noise reduction so sonographers can personalize image quality by ‘dialing in’ the right amount for each patient. CPI improves image quality at depth so sonographers can more effectively image structures deeper within the body of large and difficult-to-scan patients. Images for all patients now yield better anatomical definition throughout extended fields of view, leading to a more confident interpretation of image data.“We see a noticeable improvement in image quality and Doppler performance in patients scanned with CrystaLine imaging technology,” says Joan J. Olson, B.S., RDCS, RVT, FASE, lead cardiac sonographer at the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha.CrystaLine imaging technology builds on Esaote’s existing eHD platform and is available on new MyLab Twice, Seven and Alpha ultrasound systems. For customers with those systems already installed, CrystaLine is available as an upgrade.“Ultrasound remains a primary tool in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease,” said Brian Murphy, vice president of marketing and sales for Esaote North America. “Esaote is committed to continuously improving ultrasound’s ability to serve the evolving needs of new and existing customers throughout the United States.”For more information: www.esaoteusa.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Ultrasound Women’s Health | July 11, 2019 FDA Clears Koios DS Breast 2.0 AI-based Software Koios Medical announced its second 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
