Costa Rica to expand smoking cessation program to all public hospitals by

first_imgThe Costa Rican Social Security System, or Caja, plans to open smoking cessation clinics in hospitals countrywide to help folks kick the habit. But coming to the aid of smokers really isn’t a choice for health officials, and Caja Executive President María del Rocío Sáenz Madrigal said on Wednesday her agency is legally obligated to provide support by the 2012Control of Tobacco and its Harmful Effects on Health Law.The law calls for funding to be made available to clinics from a ₡20 ($0.04) tax on every cigarrete sold.Under the Caja’s new plan, each hospital must form an interdisciplinary team composed of doctors, psychologists, nutritionists, social workers and nurses, among other specialists.The Caja currently offers smoking cessation clinics in the capital at Hospital México, San Juan de Dios and Calderón Guardia, and at hospitals in Alajuela and Heredia.By next year, the agency expects to open clinics in Puntarenas, San Carlos (Alajuela), Guápiles (Limón), Pérez Zeledón (southern San José), Max Peralta (Cartago) and at the National Psychiatric Hospital. Health officials will open clinics in all public hospitals by 2016, Sáenz said at a press conference.The Caja also will provide educational materials, beds, audiovisual equipment for keynote speakers and medical equipment for respiratory exams.Smoking cessation programs include eight weekly sessions averaging three hours each, doctor checkups and prescriptions. Participants also receive nutrition and healthy lifestyle information, and therapy sessions for nicotine dependence.Participation is open to all Caja insurance holders 18 and older who reside in a hospital’s area of coverage.Caja officials hope to help at least 3,000 smokers each year when all of the clinics are fully operational.According to Caja figures, 14.2 percent of Ticos older than 20 are active smokers. Smoking is linked to risk factors for the two leading causes of death in Costa Rica: cardiovascular disease and cancer.

Cubas popularity concerns Caribbean tourism officials

first_img Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Parents, stop beating yourself up Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober How men can have a healthy 2019 “If we continue to operate business as usual, and we all draw from the same pie and Cuba is in the equation … there will be serious economic and employment consequences,” he said in a phone interview.The association seeks to create a Caribbean Basin Tourism Initiative to help boost investment and travel across the region with help from the U.S. The plan would be modeled on the Caribbean Basin Initiative, a U.S.-led program in the 1980s that sought to boost trade in the Caribbean and Central America.The association proposes the plan in a report that warns of Cuba’s impact on the Caribbean and that was sent to the U.S. International Trade Commission.The report calls the opening of travel to Cuba for U.S. visitors “the biggest and most disruptive pebble to be dropped into the Caribbean pool in fifty years.”From January to early May, Cuba saw a 36 percent increase in U.S. visitors from the same period in 2014. It also had a 14 percent jump in other international arrivals, and Caribbean tourism officials say they expect those numbers to keep rising.“Those countries whose focus has been on the United States as their primary source market and who have not felt any competition from Cuba … will be surprised at how sophisticated and effective the Cuban marketing machine has become,” the report says. SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Caribbean tourism officials are pushing for a partnership with the U.S. government because of concerns that warming relations between the U.S. and Cuba will result in a significant loss of visitors to the rest of the region.Cuba has seen such a surge in visitors that the fragile budgets of many tourism-dependent islands will be hit hard if they don’t take action, Frank Comito, CEO of the Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association, said Wednesday. Comments   Share   New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Top Stories Clean energy: Why it matters for Arizona Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Sponsored Stories The association said the islands where the tourism business could be most affected are those closest to Cuba.It is unclear whether tourism officials on those islands support the association’s plan or whether they have taken steps to help attract more visitors. Tourism officials in Jamaica, the Cayman Islands and the Bahamas did not return messages for comment.Comito said the region should work together to boost overall investment and travel to the Caribbean.“It’s a little idealistic, but I think you need an element of that in this,” he said. “A stronger Caribbean benefits everyone, including Cuba.”Copyright © The Associated Press.

Gold Coast cruise terminal years away

first_imgIt appears that the Gold Coast is unlikely to get its controversial new cruise ship terminal until at least 2018, with confidential documents revealing both the Government and the Gold Coast City Council are in dispute about on how to deliver key elements of the project.Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate appears to be maintain cruise ships will dock on the Gold Coast in two years, previously announcing a Carnival liner set to dock on September 30, 2015, with documents obtained under Right To Information showing his determination to achieve the deadline, with council officers being secretly briefed on investigating an interim terminal north of Sea World Nara Resort, reported.The Queensland Government though has opposed the move, concerned it could torpedo the bid for a permanent facility, with Queensland Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney reported to have privately told the Mayor it will be left to the market place to determine a more realistic date, with State planning bureaucrats listing the delivery date as 2018.State planners have also warned Mr Seeney of five major risks for the Coast terminal, including potential competition from a cruise ship terminal earmarked for Luggage Point at the mouth of the Brisbane River, with a Gold Coast Bulletin report in November last year detailing how the Brisbane City Council in its Neighbourhood Plan for Pinkenba-Eagle Farm had set aside a future area for a deep-water cruise ship terminal at the mouth of the Brisbane River.Other major risks, provided in documents, show government planners have questioned the commitment of the cruise ship industry to a Broadwater port and acknowledged “community concerns about environmental harm” to the development of Crown land north of Sea World and on Wavebreak Island.Recent letters between Mr Seeney and Cr Tate also raise questions about which agency will drive the project, with a briefing note to Mr Seeney providing background on the secret Sea World Nara north option, explaining, “Cr Tate has requested his staff investigate an interim cruise ship terminal option”.  The department had concerns the interim cruise ship terminal “may compromise future developments including a permanent cruise ship terminal”. “It could add unnecessary costs on the State and as yet provides no certainty on visitations by cruise industry companies,” the letter reportedly read.The reports go on to say that State government officials have questioned the “business case” and estimated initial capital dredging costs could be $50 million, which would lead the Council to ask the state for funds, with the government having provided the new Gold Coast Waterways Authority with a four year maintenance budget of $30 million, but that did not include a capital dredging allocation.In a letter to Mayor Tate, Mr Seeney also detailed his concerns about the council’s intention of buying back the terminal for $1, which he argued “poses a risk” to securing a commercial contract, saying “I was surprised to read in your letter the council’s intention to purchase the cruise ship terminal, once constructed for $1”.  “This poses a risk to the upcoming transaction in that it significantly impacts the commercial viability of a cruise ship terminal,” the letter read.   “Further, it adds a condition to the market place when the success of the approach to market will minimise significantly the conditions we imposed.”Mr Seeney also addressed the Council’s repeated requests for funding commitments for infrastructure network upgrades linked to the project saying,  “this is inconsistent with the state’s ‘no net cost/no risk’ approach to this project”.”I propose that we await the responses to the Expression of Interest invitation to assess the extent to which the state and council infrastructure may be impacted.”Cr Tate in a letter to Mr Seeney had reinforced the council’s position to exclude Doug Jennings Park at the north of The Spit from the Expression of Interest process, but Mr Seeney replied, “the inclusion of Doug Jennings Park in the land on offer signals to the market that this approach to the market differs from previous approaches and is an invitation to the market to think laterally about what is possible, and to outline this in their EOI”.Source = eTB Cruise Expertlast_img read more

It’s an absolute privilege to be recognised in this way. To be honest, winning was a complete surprise as I knew I was up against some extremely strong and accomplished competition. I am grateful to have worked with some inspiring people in travel over the last 13 years who have all helped me get to where I am today. Honestly, I’m blown away. This award means so much to me.”Byrne pays tribute to TravelManagers and her colleagues including PTM Kim Mason, representative for Cronulla in Sydney who was also a finalist.“My last three years as a TravelManagers’ PTM has been my most rewarding. My greatest reward is planning an incredible holiday for my clients and with two children under three years, being able to work in an industry that I love that also affords me flexibility and work-life balance really is the icing on the cake. My congratulations to all the other finalists, in particular my colleague Kim who is as passionate about travel and providing exceptional customer service as I am.”For TravelManagers, the 21st year of Avis Travel Agents Scholarship of Excellence will be one for the history books. As Executive General Manager Michael Gazal explains, “It’s a trio of firsts for TravelManagers.”“Nakita’s win is significant as not only is this TravelManagers inaugural award win, we actually had fifty percent of the finalists with Kim Mason also in the running and for thefirst time all finalists were home-based travel professionals. We congratulate both Nakita and Kim on their significant achievements. They have embraced the home-based technology and they certainly deliver on the TravelManagers’ promise of providing expert advice with exceptional and consistent customer service. It is this attention to detail that sets them apart from the rest of the industry.”Gazal sees Byrne’s win and Mason’s finalist nomination as further demonstrating TravelManagers growing dominance and commitment and strength of its PTM model.“Last night was the 21st year of Avis Travel Agents Scholarship of Excellence and with 21 being a symbol of initiation into adulthood, it was fitting that for the very first time all finalists were home-based travel professionals. I really see this as a coming of age for TravelManagers home-based technology and with PTMs strong focus on individual customised travel planning and personalised service it really does seem to be the way of the future.”Traditionally only written entry submissions were eligible. Yet this year Avis allowed other forms of entries in addition to the written submission.“Social media is a huge part of my business and keeping in touch with my clients so I jumped at the chance to present my initial qualifying presentation by video and highlighting the social media tools I use daily. It was a fun way to communicate my key messages and I had lots of fun doing it too,” says Byrne.For Byrne, this experience highlighted again how much she loves being part of the TravelManagers family.“I have received so many congratulatory wishes from my fellow PTMs, it makes me realise how incredibly lucky I am to be a part of the TravelManagers family. We all genuinely care about each other’s successes and you can’t ask for more than that.”Byrne is looking forward to next year with excitement.“To now have twelve months professional coaching with Polonious Resources is massive for my business. I’m from a small country town and opportunities like this, even to attend these big events such as Cruise 360 and the AFTA National Travel Industry Awards don’t come around often – and of course the overseas trip just tops it all off! I’m really excited for what this next year will bring!”For more information or to speak to someone confidentially about TravelManagers please contact Suzanne Laister on 1800 019 599 About TravelManagersTravel Managers operates in all Australian States and is a wholly owned subsidiary of House of Travel, Australasia’s largest independent travel company which has a forecast turnover of $1.5 billion for 2017.

Go back to the enewsletter ONE65 a multilevel cu

first_imgGo back to the enewsletterONE65, a multi-level culinary concept envisioned by James Beard Award-winning, Michelin-starred executive chef and partner Claude Le Tohic, offering four distinct modern French cuisine dining experiences under one roof, is slated to begin a phased opening beginning this northern autumn.Occupying six floors in the heart of San Francisco’s Union Square at 165 O’Farrell Street, ONE65 celebrates modern French cuisine with ONE65 Patisserie on the first and second floors for classic French pastries and casual breakfast and lunch offerings, including takeaway; ONE65 Bistro on the third floor for lunch and dinner; ONE65 Lounge for cocktails and fine wine and spirits; and fine dining at O’ by Claude Le Tohic on the fifth and sixth floors. The first and third floors are slated to open this northern autumn, with the other spaces opening in the following months.“With ONE65, I wanted to create a morning-till-night, modern French culinary destination, accessible to everyone, without pretence, offering high-quality cuisine in a friendly and welcoming environment,” said Le Tohic. “Each floor has its own personality, its own food, to please every audience.”ONE65 PatisserieLocated on the street level with additional seating on the second floor, ONE65 Patisserie is a contemporary French grand patisserie with classic bistro seating. The Patisserie will offer modern casual dining and takeaway, with convenient breakfast and lunch options. The menu will feature an extensive range of house-made delights, including delectable, freshly baked French pastries, bread, ice-cream and chocolates, along with barista service and a selection of wines available by the glass or bottle.ONE65 BistroThe Bistro at ONE65, located on the third floor, will serve lunch and dinner menus that showcase local, seasonal fare minimally prepared to allow the ingredients to shine. An open kitchen, featuring a Josper charcoal oven imported exclusively for ONE65 from Spain and the only one of its kind in San Francisco, services the entire building and connects guests to the food preparation. The Bistro menu features contemporary California/French “comfort” food.ONE65 LoungeOne of the city’s few upper floor bars, ONE65 Lounge is a sophisticated destination bar overlooking Union Square and providing sweeping views across its skyline. The lounge will serve an extensive range of cocktails, fine wines and whiskies in a luxurious, intimate setting. A special menu designed for the lounge provides a selection of inviting options designed to enjoy with drinks.O’ by Claude Le TohicTaking the O’ from O’Farrell reminded Le Tohic of the French eau, meaning water. From this, Le Tohic has personally developed a refined culinary concept and a menu based on the elements of water, fire and earth. Luxurious but not pretentious, O’ will offer modern French cuisine with elegant and attentive service.Design ConceptONE65 is a unique concept housed within a transformed National Registry historic building led by San Francisco-based D-Scheme Studio. The original French Beaux-Arts style has been preserved and enhanced with stylish and modern touches. Each restaurant has its own design vision, yet all are connected through the placement of art by Christian Andrade and D-Scheme Studio’s architect and president, Marc Dimalanta.An emphasis was placed on sustainability, with recycled and sustainable materials dictating much of the Bistro’s design. From the recycled cork flooring to the recycled porcelain panelling – the first of its kind in the US – the Bistro will encompass a tactile and pared-back aesthetic, with raw cloth napkins, tufted leather banquettes, wooden table tops and recycled China crockery.For more information visit back to the enewsletterlast_img read more

Franklin died Thursday, Aug. 16, 2018 at her home in Detroit. She was 76. (Photo by Charles Sykes/Invision/AP, File) by Mesfin Fekadu And Hillel Italie, The Associated Press Posted Aug 16, 2018 7:06 am PDT Last Updated Aug 16, 2018 at 1:20 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email ‘Queen of Soul’ Aretha Franklin dies at 76center_img NEW YORK, N.Y. – Aretha Franklin, the undisputed “Queen of Soul” who sang with matchless style on such classics as “Think,” ”I Say a Little Prayer” and her signature song, “Respect,” and stood as a cultural icon around the globe, died Thursday at age 76 from pancreatic cancer.She died at her home in Detroit — “one of the darkest moments of our lives,” her family said, in a statement released to The Associated Press by publicist Gwendolyn Quinn.“We have been deeply touched by the incredible outpouring of love and support we have received from close friends, supporters and fans all around the world ,” the family said, adding that funeral arrangements would be announced in coming days.Franklin, who had battled undisclosed health issues in recent years, announced her retirement from touring last year.A professional singer and accomplished pianist by her late teens, a superstar by her mid-20s, Franklin had long ago settled any arguments over who was the greatest popular vocalist of her time . Her gifts, natural and acquired, were a multi-octave mezzo-soprano, gospel passion and training worthy of a preacher’s daughter, taste sophisticated and eccentric, and the courage to channel private pain into liberating song.“She was truly one of a kind,” said Clive Davis, the music mogul who brought her to Arista Records and helped revive her career in the 1980s. “She was more than the Queen of Soul. She was a national treasure to be cherished by every generation throughout the world.”She recorded hundreds of tracks and had dozens of hits over the span of a half century , including 20 that reached No. 1 on the R&B charts. But her reputation was defined by an extraordinary run of top 10 smashes in the late 1960s, from the morning-after bliss of “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” to the wised-up “Chain of Fools” to her unstoppable call for “Respect.”Her records sold millions of copies and the music industry couldn’t honour her enough. Franklin won 18 Grammy awards. In 1987, she became the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.Fellow singers bowed to her eminence. Said Smokey Robinson, who grew up with her in Detroit: “This morning my longest friend in this world went home to be with our Father. I will miss her so much but I know she’s at peace.”Political and civic leaders treated her as a peer. Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was a longtime friend, and she sang at the dedication of King’s memorial, in 2011. She performed at the inaugurations of Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, and at the funeral for civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks. Clinton gave Franklin the National Medal of Arts. President George W. Bush awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honour, in 2005.Bill and Hillary Clinton issued a statement mourning the loss of their friend and “one of America’s greatest treasures.” For more than 50 years, they said, Franklin “stirred our souls. She was elegant, graceful, and utterly uncompromising in her artistry.”Franklin’s best-known appearance with a president was in January 2009, when she sang “My Country ’tis of Thee” at President Barack Obama’s inauguration. She wore a grey felt hat with a huge, Swarovski rhinestone-bordered bow that became an internet sensation and even had its own website. In 2015, she brought Obama and others to tears with a triumphant performance of “Natural Woman” at a Kennedy Center tribute to the song’s co-writer, Carole King.Franklin endured the exhausting grind of celebrity and personal troubles dating back to childhood. She was married from 1961 to 1969 to her manager, Ted White, and their battles are widely believed to have inspired her performances on several songs, including “(Sweet Sweet Baby) Since You’ve Been Gone,” ”Think” and her heartbreaking ballad of despair, “Ain’t No Way.” The mother of two sons by age 16 (she later had two more), she was often in turmoil as she struggled with her weight, family problems and financial predicaments. Her best known producer, Jerry Wexler, nicknamed her “Our Lady of Mysterious Sorrows.”Franklin married actor Glynn Turman in 1978 in Los Angeles but returned to her hometown of Detroit the following year after her father was shot by burglars and left semi-comatose until his death in 1984. She and Turman divorced that year.Despite growing up in Detroit, and having Robinson as a childhood friend, Franklin never recorded for Motown Records; stints with Columbia and Arista were sandwiched around her prime years with Atlantic Records. But it was at Detroit’s New Bethel Baptist Church, where her father was pastor, that Franklin learned the gospel fundamentals that would make her a soul institution.Aretha Louise Franklin was born March 25, 1942, in Memphis, Tennessee. The Rev. C.L. Franklin soon moved his family to Buffalo, New York, then to Detroit, where the Franklins settled after the marriage of Aretha’s parents collapsed and her mother (and reputed sound-alike) Barbara returned to Buffalo.C.L. Franklin was among the most prominent Baptist ministers of his time. He recorded dozens of albums of sermons and music and knew such gospel stars as Marion Williams and Clara Ward, who mentored Aretha and her sisters Carolyn and Erma. (Both sisters sang on Aretha’s records, and Carolyn also wrote “Ain’t No Way” and other songs for Aretha). Music was the family business and performers from Sam Cooke to Lou Rawls were guests at the Franklin house. In the living room, the shy young Aretha awed friends with her playing on the grand piano.Franklin occasionally performed at New Bethel Baptist throughout her career; her 1987 gospel album “One Lord One Faith One Baptism” was recorded live at the church.Her most acclaimed gospel recording came in 1972 with the Grammy-winning album “Amazing Grace,” which was recorded live at New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in South Central Los Angeles and featured gospel legend James Cleveland, along with her own father (Mick Jagger was one of the celebrities in the audience). It became one of the bestselling gospel albums ever.The piano she began learning at age 8 became a jazzy component of much of her work, including arranging as well as songwriting. “If I’m writing and I’m producing and singing, too, you get more of me that way, rather than having four or five different people working on one song,” Franklin told The Detroit News in 2003.Franklin was in her early teens when she began touring with her father, and she released a gospel album in 1956 through J-V-B Records. Four years later, she signed with Columbia Records producer John Hammond, who called Franklin the most exciting singer he had heard since a vocalist he promoted decades earlier, Billie Holiday. Franklin knew Motown founder Berry Gordy Jr. and considered joining his label, but decided it was just a local company at the time.Franklin recorded several albums for Columbia Records over the next six years. She had a handful of minor hits, including “Rock-A-Bye Your Baby With a Dixie Melody” and “Runnin’ Out of Fools,” but never quite caught on as the label tried to fit into her a variety of styles, from jazz and show songs to such pop numbers as “Mockingbird.” Franklin jumped to Atlantic Records when her contract ran out, in 1966.“But the years at Columbia also taught her several important things,” critic Russell Gersten later wrote. “She worked hard at controlling and modulating her phrasing, giving her a discipline that most other soul singers lacked. She also developed a versatility with mainstream music that gave her later albums a breadth that was lacking on Motown LPs from the same period.“Most important, she learned what she didn’t like: to do what she was told to do.”At Atlantic, Wexler teamed her with veteran R&B musicians from Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, and the result was a tougher, soulful sound, with call-and-response vocals and Franklin’s gospel-style piano, which anchored “I Say a Little Prayer,” ”Natural Woman” and others.Of Franklin’s dozens of hits, none was linked more firmly to her than the funky, horn-led march “Respect” and its spelled out demand for “R-E-S-P-E-C-T.”Writing in Rolling Stone magazine in 2004, Wexler said: “There are songs that are a call to action. There are love songs. There are sex songs. But it’s hard to think of another song where all those elements are combined.”Franklin had decided she wanted to “embellish” the R&B song written by Otis Redding, whose version had been a modest hit in 1965, Wexler said.“When she walked into the studio, it was already worked out in her head,” the producer wrote. “Otis came up to my office right before ‘Respect’ was released, and I played him the tape. He said, ‘She done took my song.’ He said it benignly and ruefully. He knew the identity of the song was slipping away from him to her.”In a 2004 interview with the St. Petersburg (Florida) Times, Franklin was asked whether she sensed in the ’60s that she was helping change popular music.“Somewhat, certainly with ‘Respect,’ that was a battle cry for freedom and many people of many ethnicities took pride in that word,” she answered. “It was meaningful to all of us.”In 1968, Franklin was pictured on the cover of Time magazine and had more than 10 Top 20 hits in 1967 and 1968. At a time of rebellion and division, Franklin’s records were a musical union of the church and the secular, man and woman, black and white, North and South, East and West. They were produced and engineered by New Yorkers Wexler and Tom Dowd, arranged by Turkish-born Arif Mardin and backed by an interracial assembly of top session musicians based mostly in Alabama.Her popularity faded during the 1970s despite such hits as the funky “Rock Steady” and such acclaimed albums as the intimate “Spirit in the Dark.” But her career was revived in 1980 with a cameo appearance in the smash movie “The Blues Brothers” and her switch to Arista . Franklin collaborated with such pop and soul artists as Luther Vandross, Elton John, Whitney Houston and George Michael, with whom she recorded a No. 1 single, “I Knew You Were Waiting (for Me).” Her 1985 album “Who’s Zoomin’ Who” received some of her best reviews and included such hits as the title track and “Freeway of Love.”Critics consistently praised Franklin’s singing but sometimes questioned her material; she covered songs by Stephen Sondheim, Bread, the Doobie Brothers. For Aretha, anything she performed was “soul.”From her earliest recording sessions, she defied category. The 1998 Grammys gave her a chance to demonstrate her range. Franklin performed “Respect,” then, with only a few minutes’ notice, filled in for an ailing Luciano Pavarotti and drew rave reviews for her rendition of “Nessun Dorma,” a stirring aria for tenors from Puccini’s “Turandot.”“I’m sure many people were surprised, but I’m not there to prove anything,” Franklin told The Associated Press. “Not necessary.”Fame never eclipsed Franklin’s charitable works, or her loyalty to Detroit.Franklin sang the national anthem at Super Bowl in her hometown in 2006, after grousing that Detroit’s rich musical legacy was being snubbed when the Rolling Stones were chosen as halftime performers.“I didn’t think there was enough (Detroit representation) by any means,” she said. “And it was my feeling, ‘How dare you come to Detroit, a city of legends — musical legends, plural — and not ask one or two of them to participate?’ That’s not the way it should be.”Franklin did most of her extensive touring by bus after Redding’s death in a 1967 plane crash, and a rough flight to Detroit in 1982 left her with a fear of flying that anti-anxiety tapes and classes couldn’t help. She told Time in 1998 that the custom bus was a comfortable alternative: “You can pull over, go to Red Lobster. You can’t pull over at 35,000 feet.”She only released a few albums over the past two decades, including “A Rose is Still a Rose,” which featured songs by Sean “Diddy” Combs, Lauryn Hill and other contemporary artists, and “So Damn Happy,” for which Franklin wrote the gratified title ballad. Franklin’s autobiography, “Aretha: From These Roots,” came out in 1999, when she was in her 50s. But she always made it clear that her story would continue.“Music is my thing, it’s who I am. I’m in it for the long run,” she told The Associated Press in 2008. “I’ll be around, singing, ‘What you want, baby I got it.’ Having fun all the way.”___Online:For more, visit read more

Tough US warning as Security Council renews Unficyp mandate

first_imgThe US warned on Wednesday that the UN peacekeeping force in Cyprus cannot be part of a landscape that lacks a path toward a political solution, as the Security Council unanimously adopted resolution 2453 extending the force’s mandate for another six months until July 31.“On principle, perpetual peacekeeping missions are unacceptable,” acting US permanent representative to the UN Jonathan Cohen told the Security Council.“We are pleased that the new mandate reflects this view and that the secretary-general will examine how the many UN activities on Cyprus can be best configured in the current environment,” he said.According to the American diplomat “Unficyp and the UN’s overall presence in Cyprus cannot be a substitute for, or be a part of a landscape that lacks a path toward a political solution. We look forward to the secretary-general’s report particularly on this point.”He reiterated the US position in support of “a comprehensive settlement to reunify the island as a bizonal, bicommunal federation, to benefit all Cypriots and the wider region”.He further underscored that “while the United Nations has a critical role to play, the political process towards a settlement must be Cypriot-led.”“For a durable, lasting peace to take hold, the leaders must demonstrate the political courage and will to negotiate in good faith and with a sense of urgency,” he noted.“We urge the leaders to proactively engage UN consultant Jane Holl Lute to negotiate the terms of reference for resuming negotiations,” Cohen said.Reunification talks broke down in the summer of 2017 and there have not been any signs of a resumption since, as the two sides appear to be drifting apart from where they left the talks in Crans-Montana, Switzerland.In response to the US comment, Russian permanent representative to the UN Vassily Nebenzia expressed regret over the fact “that one delegation is making attempts to use the sensitive situation of the island to put forward its own positions.”Russia, he noted, “trusts that the adoption by the Security Council of the resolution 2453 will help Unficyp implement its mandate to set up security conditions for a settlement on the island”.“The Cypriot settlement is one of the few agenda items of the Security Council where a fully unified position of its members helps to provide a solid international support for efforts of the Cypriot parties to achieve agreement on comprehensive settlement on the basis of the UN resolutions,” he said. “The reason for the consensus is the balanced position of the council and its consent for the Cypriots themselves.”British deputy permanent representative Jonathan Allen said “we continue to be strong supporters of a just and lasting settlement to reunite Cyprus based on the internationally accepted model for a bizonal, bicommunal federation.“Through the unanimous adoption of this resolution today we are sending a clear message to all sides: to work towards the resumption of talks through constructive engagement with the United Nations consultant Ms Jane Holl Lute, and her work to reach agreement on terms of reference for resuming talks within a foreseeable horizon.”The latest resolution urges all involved to seize the opportunity presented by Lute’s consultations on a way forward by engaging actively. It also urges them to agree terms of reference which would constitute a consensus starting point for meaningful results-oriented negotiations leading to a settlement within a foreseeable horizon, and to renew their political will and commitment to a settlement under United Nations auspices.It added that the Security Council requests the secretary-general to submit a progress report on his Good Offices by April 15.It also called on the leaders of the two communities to promote peace education across the island, including by further empowering the Technical Committee on Education to address impediments to peace in school books, as a contribution to trust-building between the communities.It urged the implementation and further development of confidence-building measures, including those aimed at improving mobile phone and electricity interconnectivity, based on a shared vision for the future and joint actions.Turkey said late on Wednesday that the resolution did not make a realistic contribution to the efforts towards the settlement of the Cyprus issue and was not compatible with previous reports by the UN secretary-general.“Both in his report on his Mission of Good Offices in Cyprus dated 15 October 2018 and his latest report on the UN operations in Cyprus dated 11 January 2019, submitted to the UN Security Council, UN secretary-general had emphasised the need for new ideas, without referring to a specific settlement model,” the government said.“Despite this fact, in this most recent resolution, the UN Security Council has adopted a position which goes beyond the UN secretary-general’s views. Moreover, the UN Security Council has voiced prejudgments regarding the result of the ongoing contacts by the UN official assigned on a temporary basis by the UN secretary-general and the possible future shape of the settlement process.”You May LikePlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue BookYou Won’t Believe How Affordable These Ford Car Models AreKelley Blue BookUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

safeguard them from victimisation Related News With suspicious attacks on whistleblowers the Vyapam scam has highlighted the vulnerability of those who show truth to power The string of corruption scandals that have surfaced in the last three months have established what many believe — in a country the size and diversity of India it is impossible for a centralised mechanism to control corruption to succeed The “na khaunga na khane dunga” mantra based on a Big Brother approach with some high offices keeping a watch on the activities of all others cannot be relied upon to effectively contain the malaise of corruption Unless proper institutions and systems are put in place to empower those who expose wro-ngdoing by offering them protection and ensuring that their complaints are effecti-vely investigated and acted upon a mere change of regime will not lead to abatement in corruption Though the monsoon session of Parliament was a washout due to political parties protesting corrupt leaders there has unfortunately been little protest against the non-implementation and proposed dilution of critical anti-corruption laws passed more than a year ago — the Whistle Blowers Protection (WBP) Act 2011 and the Lokpal and Lokayuktas Act 2013 The WBP Act which received the president’s assent in May 2014 aims to encourage whistleblowing by providing mechanisms to protect whistleblowers and safeguard them from victimisation Under the law if a whistleblower is victimised she can file a complaint to the competent authority (CA) who has powers to take necessary action to prevent victimisation and issue binding orders If the WBP law was operational a whistleblower like Anand Rai in the Vyapam scam who has been recently shunted to a tribal district by the Madhya Pradesh government following a complaint filed by him to the CBI and has allegedly been receiving threats to his life could have sought redress and been afforded protection under the law Similarly the law could have provided protection to those rendering assistance in the investigation when they faced threats and attacks like the two former deans of the medical college in Jabalpur who were found dead under suspicious circumstances Under the law the CA is empowered to issue directions to the concerned government authorities including the police to provide protection Instead of promulgating effective rules to operationalise the act the government has moved an amendment in Parliament that seeks to remove the safeguards available to whistleblowers from prosecution under the Official Secrets Act (OSA) if they make a disclosure under the WBP Act The amendment also forbids disclosure of many categories of information in a whistleblower complaint like information related to the integrity security strategic scientific or economic interests of the state or information that relates to commercial confidence unless information has been obtained under the RTI If the CA receives a disclosure containing information on any of the subjects mentioned in the bill then the disclosure will not be looked into and the person making such a disclosure will also not be protected under the act The threat of stringent penalties for the violation of the OSA would deter bonafide whistleblowers from coming forward Further these amendments completely ignore the predicament of government servants who come across evidence of wrongdoing in the normal course of their work and have access to information without using the RTI The amendments render the WBP Act useless for people like Satyendra Dubey and Manjunath who blew the whistle on corruption they encountered during the course of their work The amendment has been passed by the Lok Sabha and is currently pending in the Upper House The choice of the investigating agency responsible for looking into the Vyapam scam has also been a topic of raging controversy — the Madhya Pradesh chief minister faced tremendous flak for initially not allowing the case to be investigated by the CBI It is a shame that this is happening in the backdrop of the non-implementation of the Lokpal law for over a year and a half — a law passed after a huge public outcry and which provides for independent and empowered Lokpal and Lokayuktas to investigate cases of corruption Ironically the Narendra Modi government which claims to be committed to fighting corruption has introduced a 10-page amendment in Parliament that aims to dilute provisions of the Lokpal act Currently the law requires all public servants covered under the Lokpal to declare the assets of their spouse and dependent children in addition to their own assets The proposed amendments do away with a common standard of disclosure exempting bureaucrats from disclosing assets of their spouse and children if held independently This is a blow to the anti-corruption law as illegally amassed assets are often held in the name of family members The commitment of the government and various political parties to fight corruption will be judged not by loud rhetorical claims and counter-claims of corruption but by the stand they take on these two critical laws

2014 3:42 am A yellow Ambassador taxi in Kolkata Pic: Partha Paul Top News Of all the enduring icons that Kolkata so doggedly nurtures the yellow Ambassador taxi is the most recognisable With it come stories and associations that every Kolkatan can share Stories involving genial Sikh taxi drivers who ruled the roads till about a decade ago Stories about stealing kisses in the back seat while being driven around Victoria Memorial perhaps like the lead characters in Aparna Sen’s 1981 film 36 Chowringhee Lane Like in any other city there are many markers of growing up in Kolkata like walking into the celebrated Oly Pub and ordering a beer for yourself or visiting the cavernous Kolkata MCD office But none compare to the feeling of hailing a yellow cab sprawling in the back seat and then surveying the city like you own it When it was launched in 1958 modelled on the British Morris Oxford III Hindustan Motor Ltd’s Ambassador was the undisputed king of the road Kolkata took to it like hilsa to Ganga “It was as if the car was meant for the city Its classic design went well with the city’s colonial architecture Moreover it fitted well with the image of the genteel Bengali bhadralok” says Anirban Ghosh archivist Eka cultural resources and research New Delhi Though taxi services started in Kolkata as early as 1907 the iconic Ambassador became a standard taxi model only in 1962 “The Kolkata Taxi Association was very happy with the model Not only did it have enough space and looked regal it was also very sturdy” says Tarak Nath Barik who has been with the Kolkata Taxi Association for over five decades The Avigo model launched in 2003 which was aimed for foreign shores; the various models of Ambassador launched between 1958 and 1979 Understandably the rest of India moved on They didn’t share Kolkata’s visceral love for the car The 1980s saw the launch of the people’s car Maruti 800 It was boxy and compact and was perfect for the needs of new India But Kolkata like a faithful lover remained enthralled by the curvaceous charms of the Ambassador It zealously comes to its defence even now “None of the Maruti products can match the Ambassador in terms of durability” says Barik In the late 1990s and the 2000s a spate of foreign carmakers hit the India market Ford and Volkswagon became household names Eventually Ambassador which was the sarkari car for decades lost even its last bastion Slowly but steadily most politicians chose luxurious SUVs and sedans from the likes of Mercedes Benz Audi and BMW over the Ambassador When Hindustan Motors announced that the production of Ambassador cars had been stopped in its Uttarpara plant last week about 50 km from the city centre at its factory a grim reality struck the 2600 workers Less than a month ago the factory was manufacturing 150 Ambassadors a day But 150 is a measly number when it comes to a factory of that size “To break even we need to manufacture and sell at least 1500 cars every month” said Moloy Chowdhury of Hindustan Motors in a five-page notice that has been pasted all over the gate There is a quiet demonstration outside the gate organised by the Indian National Trinamool Trade Union Congress A shamiana has been erected tarpaulin sheets have been spread on the floor and a cluster of workers look about wearily “The union has not been informed about this shutdown We have not been paid for six months” says Uttam Chakraborty general secretary INTTUC Hindustan Motors For the workers the idea itself is unthinkable “They never said they will scrap the car did they” asks Bapi Kar a technician who has worked in the factory for close to three decades In the mid-1980s when Kar joined Hindustan Motors the factory produced 70 cars per day “It was a monopoly then Everyone wanted an Ambassador” says Kar who plans to take a bank loan to buy a car and rent it out He insists the car is still in demand when the reality is quite the opposite The demand for the car has gone down in the past decade In 2009 8500 Ambassadors were sold in India; the number came down to 2500 in 2013-14 Kar Chakraborty and thousands of Hindustan Motors employees have seen this coming for a long time now “There are cars that offer a lot more in the same price The downfall of Ambassador happened because we couldn’t keep up with the times” says Gopal Das a technician who has been with Hindustan Motors for the past 28 years For the 32000 taxi drivers in the city too life may become a little more difficult than what it already is “I have driven an Ambassador taxi for more than two decades now For me this is the best vehicle for Kolkata roads Moreover it’s cheaper than most other cars of its size I don’t know how we will afford other mid-sized cars” says Bhushan Jha a member of Bengal Taxi Association Last year the BBC automobile show declared Kolkata Ambassador Cabs the best taxis in the world stating that “London’s black cabs are no match for India’s virtually indestructible Hindustan
