Top UN officials urge global movement of minds to realise universal values

“The Academic Impact aims to generate a global movement of minds to promote a new culture of intellectual social responsibility,” the Secretary-General told the conference, held on 1 and 2 November in advance of the formal launch of the initiative, which will take place at UNHQ in New York on 18-19 November. In institutional terms, Academic Impact will serve as a clearing house to match academic innovation with particular areas of the UN’s work, including neglected areas of research, countries in need of specific help, research that will help deliver concrete change on the ground, and the best ideas to meet the Millennium Development Goals by 2015. “It is animated by a commitment to certain bedrock principles, among them, freedom of inquiry, opinion and speech; education opportunity for all; global citizenship; sustainability; and dialogue,” the Secretary-General added. Mr. Akasaka, UN Under-Secretary General for Communications and Public Information, spoke of the integrity and universality of the initiative. “It is our conviction that principles inherent in the UN Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights are universal values that education can promote and help to fulfil,” he said. “There can be no alliance more formidable than that between scholarship and social responsibility.” Mr. Akasaka added that the spirit and intent of the UN’s Academic Impact initiative was “to unleash minds and their potential by asserting the right to enquire; the right to challenge every dogma, even if it happens to be the only dogma prevalent at the moment; to allow the liberty to express views and opinions, and to acknowledge the responsibility to substantiate them.” He said the conference, organized by China’s Ministry of Education, and attended by some 200 representatives from more than 80 universities and research institutes had helped to define the core principles of the initiative in advance of its New York launch. 2 November 2010Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and senior UN communications chief Kiyo Akasaka have urged academics and scholars to spearhead a movement to further freedom of expression and educational opportunity for all, at a conference on the UN’s Academic Impact initiative in Shanghai. read more

In special meeting UN weighs measures to prevent terrorists from exploiting the

“Today’s topic…brings us to the fine line between benevolent and malevolent: freedoms and human rights apply to anyone anywhere, but only as long as they do not call into question the enjoyment of these freedoms and human rights by others,” Jeffrey Feltman, the Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs, told a special meeting of the UN Counter-Terrorism Committee. “It is precisely [the] exploitation by terrorists and violent extremists that can easily result in us restricting human rights and fundamental freedoms,” he continued, acknowledging that while it is now “a given that ICT is part of the equation in our effort to achieve a more sustainable, equitable and connected world,” it is this free flow of information that has led the Islamic Stat of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and other extremist groups to successfully use the Internet to broadcast their ideology and to recruit foreign terrorist fighters.Indeed, ISIL, Mr. Feltman continued, has raised the exploitation of the Internet and social media to a new level, luring over 30,000 foreign terrorist fighters from over 100 countries to join the conflicts in Syria and Iraq or inciting individuals to commit terrorist acts in their home countries. Thus, local and regional conflicts have unprecedented global repercussions.“We cannot allow the internet to be abused to undermine the foundations of our societies,” he told the day-long event, which also featured opening remarks from Raimonda Murmokaite Chair of the Counter-Terrorism Committee and Jean-Paul Laborde, Executive Director of the UN Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate (CTED).“How do we make our preventive and counter-measures more effective without calling into question the respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms?” Mr. Feltman asked, and noted that the respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms is central to the answer: where rights and freedoms are jeopardized or granted selectively, the potential for grievances grows and can in turn provide fertile ground for recruitment by terrorist and violent extremist groups, ever more cost-effectively and far-reaching thanks to ICT.The UN and Member States – working closely with the private sector and civil society – must act together to prevent and counter the exploitation of ICT resources and also develop their own effective strategic communications tools to expose the hypocrisy of terrorist and violent extremist groups as well as inspire and instil in potential recruits tangible alternatives, he underscored.“The United Nations sees its role in support of Member States both as convener and provider of capacity-building,” stated Mr. Feltman, going to spotlight three core areas of activities: UN coherence; innovative dialogue with new partners; and a global framework.Specifically on that issue, he announced that Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will release, in the coming days, a Plan of Action to Prevent Violent Extremism, which will make strategic recommendations to address the drivers of violent extremism and to broaden our approach beyond ongoing, essential security-based counter-terrorism measures. “It will call for greater attention to strategic communications at all levels. It will put an emphasis on youth, focusing on the interface between youth and social media, putting young people at the centre of our efforts to address the misuse of the internet,” added Mr. Feltman.To complement Member States’ efforts, he said that the UN Centre for Counter-Terrorism is exploring opportunities for capacity-building programmes to assist them in designing strategic communications that respond to the specific challenges posed by violent extremist communications.As for what he called the even broader UN-provided framework, Mr. Feltman stressed that the UN Charter and international human rights law form the basis for effective preventive and counter-terrorism measures. “We have to end impunity and make sure that terrorists and their supporters are held accountable for incitement by having in place the appropriate legislative provisions to bring perpetrators to justice,” he said.Today’s meeting coincides with the closing of the General Assembly’s High-Level meeting on the outcomes of the World Summit on the Information Society, and as the Security Council has convened a meeting of finance ministers from among its member States on ways to disrupt terrorist financing. read more

University marks anniversary of Montreal Massacre

Thursday was the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, marking the 23rd anniversary of the Montreal Massacre. When Wendee Kubik first began teaching 16 years ago, almost everyone in her women’s studies classes knew about the Montreal Massacre.Now, 23 years after 14 women were targeted and murdered at Montreal’s L’Ecole Polytechnique on Dec. 6, 1989, fewer hands go up when Kubik asks her students if they know about the mass murder.“It could be about 10 have heard about it,” said Kubik, associate professor in Brock’s Centre for Women’s and Gender Studies. “Maybe they don’t know a lot about it, but they’ve heard about it.”That’s Kubik’s cue to fill in any blanks about an event that was pivotal in highlighting how much of an issue sexism violence against women really was – and still is – in Canadian society. It’s an event that also led to the creation of the Centre for Women’s and Gender Studies at Brock.Wendee KubikThursday, Kubik and others gathered to remember the victims of the Montreal Massacre at a candlelight vigil at the University and mark the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.Polytechnique, a film about the murders, was shown and a discussion was held afterward.Kubik also spoke about the 600 aboriginal women in Canada who have gone missing or been murdered in the past 20 years. In August 2011, the province of Manitoba, RCMP and Winnipeg Police launched the Manitoba Integrated Task Force for Missing and Murdered Women to investigate.Despite fewer of her students knowing or remembering the Polytechnique tragedy, it still resonates with them, Kubik said.“The room gets so quiet (when I talk to them about it),” she said. “You can almost hear a pin drop. A lot of women can relate because that’s them. They’re in university now and they say ‘She was as old as I was.’”Still, in the years since, Kubik has seen progress made to end violence against women.One telltale sign: “You’ll probably see a man wearing a white ribbon today,” she said.It’s a symbol that the person wearing it is not only against violence against women but is committed to speaking out against it, too.“We see more and more men challenging things that are misogynist today. We’ve got more feminist men today,” Kubik said.And she credits the National Day of Remembrance with playing a role, no matter how many years pass since the tragedy that forced its inception.“It’s just a time to stop, to think and reflect, and see how far we’ve come and where do we need to go,” Kubik said. read more

Fouryearold boy whose parents were on honeymoon among dead in Portugal fires

first_img By AFP Share294 Tweet Email Four-year-old boy whose parents were on honeymoon among dead in Portugal fires At least 64 people have died in fires that swept through the centre of the country at the weekend. http://jrnl.ie/3453254 A firefighting aircraft drops water over a fire outside the village of Pedrogao Grande, central Portugal yesterday Source: Paulo Duarte/AP/Press Association ImagesA CHILD WHO died in the flames during his parents’ honeymoon, a family saved by a water tank, and a group of friends rescued by a generous neighbour.These are some of the stories of dozens of Portuguese whose lives were rocked by fires that swept through the centre of the country at the weekend.At least 64 people have died in the fires. Firefighters are still tackling blazes in several locations.The parents of four-year-old Rodrigo were on their honeymoon when they heard news of the devastating fire sweeping through the village of Nodeirinho in the Leiria region.The newlyweds had left their little boy with his uncle and aunt, the Correio da Manha newspaper reported. Unable to get hold of them, Rodrigo’s mother pleaded for help on social media to find her child.His grandmother had rushed from Lisbon to try to find him, but the bodies of Rodrigo and his uncle were found beside a car, caught by the flames as they tried to flee.Water tank escape While several residents of the village of Pobrais were killed while trying to flee roadside flames, the Ferreira family survived by taking refuge in a small water tank a few metres from their door.Maria do Ceu, a 52-year-old housewife, her husband, a 68-year-old who was formerly in the merchant navy, and their two daughters aged in their 30s told AFP of their “indescribable” fear.“I knew we would be safe if we stayed in the water,” one of the daughters, a forest engineer, said. “We tried to convince our neighbours to stay, we begged them, but they still left” by car, towards the road where 11 of them were found dead.Refuge from the flames A 60-year-old widow’s home, the most modern in Nodeirinho, became a refuge from the raging fire destroying house after house in the village, the Expresso newspaper reported.Two panicked couples from Lisbon and three children, who had been caught in the flames as they returned from lunch with friends, knocked on Adelaide Silva’s door, pleading for shelter. A man attempts to contain a forest fire threatening a nearby commercial fruit grove outside Derreada Cimeira, around 180 kilometres northeast of Lisbon Source: Peter Kneffel/DPA/PA ImagesSilva welcomed the family, before letting in an eighth survivor who had been trying to escape by car with her husband.However, the fire had quickly caught up with the couple, killing the husband while his wife managed to escape with burns to her face, arms and back. One of the women who had already taken refuge in the house, a nurse, wrapped her in wet towels until she was later taken to hospital.Livelihood destroyed Virgilio Godinho and his wife Isabel saw their small farm, together with their orchard, olive grove, vegetable garden and pick-up truck go up in flames in the village of Vilas de Pedro.The couple and their 18-year-old daughter escaped because they were attending a wedding in another village.Isabel Godinho, 63, tearfully told AFP: “We lost everything, I do not how we will eat, I’m going crazy.”Virgilio, an unemployed mechanic, lost his entire tool collection.“It was fortunate we were not there because I would have tried to save our possessions and then the worst could have happened,” he said.- © AFP 2017Read: Portugal in mourning as firefighters continue to battle deadly wildfireRead: Death toll from raging Portuguese forest fire rises to at least 62 23,075 Views Tuesday 20 Jun 2017, 7:51 AM 9 Comments Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Short URL Jun 20th 2017, 7:51 AM last_img read more

Mbappé wanted to join Real or Barca

first_imgKylian Mbappé managed to win the Ligue 1 title with Monaco the last year and this year, he did the same thing with PSG – but Unai Emery admitted that initially, the player wanted to leave to Spain.After a terrific previous season, Mbappé had a lot of options where to go and Emery admitted that at first, PSG weren’t his first choice as he wanted to join either Barcelona or Real Madrid.The former Sevilla coach spoke about this transfer as he said, according to Sports Keeda:Opinion: Neymar will earn respect back from the PSG fans Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After completing his incredible return to Parc des Princes, we predict that Neymar will earn the respect back from PSG supporters.The situation between Neymar…“When I met his father, and himself, at home, the player wanted to go to Madrid or Barca, and it was the club and me who told him that he had to be in France.”“Historically, this type of French player, who was just 18 years old and was starting to show up, was leaving France, and as a Frenchman, you must be proud to have Mbappe at PSG.”“The French must be happy that he stays in France, because before the players like him, like [Thierry] Henry, went to England or Spain.”last_img read more

Shearer baffled by Rooneys England return

first_imgAn annoyed Alan Shearer reckons next week’s international friendly with the United States has been turned into a Wayne Rooney testimonialThe FA has recalled former Three Lions captain Rooney for his first international game in two years.The friendly at Wembley next Thursday will be Rooney’s 120th and final appearance for England.The Manchester United legend will later donate some of the proceeds from the game to a charity.But Shearer can’t understand why the FA couldn’t have simply just invited Rooney to attend as a spectator instead.“It is great for Wayne to have the chance to say goodbye to fans at Wembley,” Shearer told The Sun.“But it is an honour to play for England. England should not have to honour you.“Given Wayne retired from international football 15 months ago, if the FA really wanted to give him a send-off, why could they not invite him to the game as a guest?Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“That would make more sense than saying: ‘Thanks for playing for England, Wayne, here’s another game for you.’“It is great that the FA want to pay tribute to his career and raise funds for his charity. But they should not turn an international match into a testimonial.”Former England striker Shearer scored 30 goals in 63 appearances at international level between 1992 to 2000.After the game against the US, England will then host Croatia three days at Wembley for a UEFA Nations League clash.pic.twitter.com/v5tWGOQMp9— England (@England) November 4, 2018last_img read more

Five kids dead in Butte trailer home fire

first_imgFive children died in a fire that gutted a trailer home in Butte this morning off the Old Glenn Highway near Palmer, according to Alaska State TroopersListen nowBut troopers couldn’t — or wouldn’t — say what caused the blaze or who was responsible for the five girls who died. The girls ranged in age from three to 12.Somber fire investigators combed through debris inside the blackened trailer off Wickham Drive on Thursday.A neighbor had called 911 to report the fire a little before 7 a.m. Thursday. Another neighbor, who did not want to be recorded in an interview, would only say the five girls who died were “good kids,” as he stared at the charred home past the yellow fire line tape.Firefighters from nearby Butte Fire Department, as well as Palmer Fire and Rescue, responded.Troopers and the state fire marshal are still investigating what sparked the fire and whether there were any other factors that may have contributed to the girls’ deaths. The investigators have not released the victims’ names, nor have they said whether they were members of the same family or whether an adult was present or involved in any way.Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters said early indications are that the girls died in the fire. But she says there won’t be a final determination on what caused their death until troopers have had time to investigate.“It is a tragedy no matter how you look at it,” Peters said. “We don’t know at this point if there were other factors involved in their death, but that’s something we’re going to look into.”Peters said that will take time.“Whenever you have a fire, things are always very complicated, I mean, things get burned up, things get scattered,” Peters said. “There are people who fight the fire, that’s what they do, so there’s water. It’s a really long drawn out process.”As Peters spoke, state medical examiners were removing the girls’ remains from the trailer, putting them in body bags and preparing to drive them to Anchorage. She said that’s where they’ll undergo autopsies.Investigators have been in touch with family members and are conducting interviews. But Peters said it is too soon to identify the girls publicly until troopers are completely sure of their identities.Peters said that, to her knowledge, nobody from the home was treated for injuries and that she could not comment on whether anyone besides the girls was present at the time of the fire.last_img read more

HandsOn Overcooked 2 is Very Spicy

first_img The first Overcooked launched almost two years ago on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC where critics praised it for its co-operative cooking chaos. But unsurprisingly love for the game exploded when it arrived last year on Nintendo Switch, a platform practically built for frantic local multiplayer starring cartoons. So while the sequel is once again coming to all platforms this summer, when we teamed up with developer Ghost Town Games to play some Overcooked 2, it was on the Switch.Overcooked hasn’t changed its winning original recipe. Players cooperate as different chefs in a kitchen working together to complete enough meals and make money. The controls are more arcade simple than cooking sim. The challenge comes from making sure everyone is working efficiently while dealing with unexpected hazards. To make salad and soup, some players cuts vegetable while others make sure the pot doesn’t burn and incoming dishes get washed.It’s a formula sound but malleable enough that there are lots of creative new places for the game to go in this sequel. And Overcooked 2 does get downright bizarre, even considering the last game had a talking onion king. Players can now toss food, opening up lots of new strategies with high risk and high reward. Try telling a hungry customer they have to wait longer because one of the chefs has a bad underhand.Overcooked 2 also adds new recipes which naturally give the game more appreciated variety. I understand the need for a limited menu because players are meant to commit recipes to memory in order to work faster. But after making so much soup and salad in the first game getting a bunch of sushi orders, with different steps for boiling rice and preparing seaweed wraps, made Overcooked 2 feel like a blessing from food gods.What’s most impressive about Overcooked 2 though is just how the team was able to use the first game’s success to justify a larger scope (and development team) this time around. It infamously took a few patches before the original Overcooked performed well on Switch. But this demo ran smoothly while also looking way better.We played on a dynamic kitchen suspended in a hot air balloon where shifting tables and breakout fires constantly changed our available paths. The spectacle reached a crescendo when we crashed back down to earth and still had to keep making food. Not since Mortal Kombat have I seen a wilder stage transition.Overcooked 2 launches August 7 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows. If you want to get in on the food fight but don’t have friends, the sequel also adds online multiplayer for the first time.Buy it now!Overcooked 2Nintendo SwitchProtect Your Nintendo Switch With These Awesome CasesLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

first_img 0 Comments   Share   Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Jones, who is making roughly $7.8 million in the last season of his rookie contract, figures to command a higher salary than that. Should the Cardinals be unable to come to an agreement with him, the option of using the franchise tag — which would pay him a salary that is the average of the top five highest paid players at his position for on year — would be there.“That’s always an option, but that’s not the reason we made the trade,” Keim said. “We made the trade with the mindset that the guy is going to have success, which he has, and that he could potentially be a fixture here long-term.“So hopefully, again, we’ll get something ironed out, but I’ve been doing this long enough now where I understand how negotiations go, so you can never tell.” Jones’ seven sacks lead the Cardinals and have him tied for eighth in the NFL, and on Sunday, FOX’s Jay Glazer reported the team and player have been in discussions for a contract extension.A guest of Doug and Wolf on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM Monday morning, Cardinals GM Steve Keim had nothing but praise for Jones, who tallied two sacks in Sunday’s 23-20 win over the 49ers.“I would say this about him, and without getting into the dialogue of the negotiations, but you know, when you make a trade for a player that you don’t know well personally, you’re not sure how it’s going to go,” Keim said. “Although you see what you see on tape, he has been a great teammate, he’s been fantastic in the locker room, he works extremely hard on and off the field.“So, just when I look at the person and the player, he’s been a great fit for us and hopefully we can get something ironed out long-term.”A 2012 first-round pick of the Patriots, the 26-year-old Jones has amassed 43 sacks in 64 career games, while also forcing 12 fumbles. Players of his skill set and age do not come cheap, and just last offseason less accomplished pass rushers like Bruce Irvin (4 years, $37 million, Raiders) and Olivier Vernon (5 years, $85 million, Giants) cashed in as free agents.
