27 February 2007Authorities in northern Somalia today arrested four men alleged to be part of a group that hijacked a United Nations-contracted food aid ship, but the vessel itself and its 12-member crew still remained in the hands of the pirates six miles off the coast. “The arrest is welcome news, but the safe release of the crew and the vessel remains our chief concern,” UN World Food Programme (WFP) Country Director Peter Goossens said. “We very much hope this ordeal will finish soon.” The four men were arrested when they went ashore to buy supplies in the town of Bargal in Puntland, but four other hijackers remain in control of the MV Rozen, which was seized by the pirates on Sunday shortly after it unloaded 1,800 metric tonnes of food aid and equipment – the fourth such attack on UN supply vessels off the strife-ridden East African country in 20 months. The ship, with its crew of six Sri Lankans, including the captain, and six Kenyans, is now reported to be surrounded by five of the Puntland authorities’ police and sailing southward. “We are appealing for the safe return of the crew and the vessel as soon as possible, and for people to respect the need for humanitarian delivery corridors,” Mr. Goossens said. “Somalia is one of the poorest countries in the world, and there are families whose lives depend on our ability to get food aid through.” In 2005, after two earlier hijackings, WFP temporarily suspended deliveries of food aid by sea for some weeks, but since then sea deliveries have been uninterrupted, even during the worst days of the conflict between the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) and the Union of Islamic Courts (UIC) at the end of last year. The MV Rozen itself escaped an attempted hijack in southern Somali waters last year. In 2006, WFP delivered some 78,000 metric tonnes of relief food to 1.4 million people affected by drought and floods in southern Somalia.
1 December 2009United States singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder is joining the prestigious roster of United Nations Messengers of Peace to advocate for the Organization’s work, with the artist – blind since birth – championing people with disabilities. “Our newest Messenger of Peace is someone who is admired by millions of people and has given back to millions of people,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today ahead of Mr. Wonder’s official designation at a news conference on Thursday.“I recognize that he has consistently used his voice and special relationship with the public to create a better and more inclusive world, to defend civil and human rights and to improve the lives of those less fortunate. Stevie Wonder is a true inspiration to young people all over the world about what can be achieved despite any physical limitations.”He will join 10 other Messengers of Peace – individuals widely recognized for their talents in the arts, academia, literature, sports and entertainment – in helping to raise worldwide awareness of UN ideals and activities. Through their public appearances, contacts with the international media and humanitarian work, they expand public understanding of how the UN helps to improve the lives of people everywhere.The other Messengers of Peace and their areas of focus are: conductor Daniel Barenboim (peace and tolerance); actor George Clooney (peacekeeping); author Paulo Coelho (poverty and intercultural dialogue); actor Michael Douglas (disarmament); primatologist Jane Goodall (conservation and environmental issues); violinist Midori Goto (Millennium Development Goals and Youth); Princess Haya Bint al Hussein (Millennium Development Goals and hunger); cellist Yo-Yo Ma (youth); actor Charlize Theron (ending violence against women); and Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel (human rights).“Stevie Wonder’s activism has been pivotal in US and world events,” the UN noted in a news release, citing the 1983 campaign he spearheaded to make Martin Luther King Day a national holiday in the US, and his advocacy for ending apartheid in South Africa.He has been recognized for his philanthropic efforts, including the President’s Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities, the Children’s Diabetes Foundation, Junior Blind of America and the creation of the Wonder Vision Awards Program. For over 10 years, he has provided toys for children and families in need with his annual House Full of Toys benefit concert.His career as a recording artist has reflected his concern with humanitarian issues. He has written, produced and/or performed songs relative to charities in support of disabilities, AIDS, cancer, diabetes, hunger and homelessness, domestic abuse and many other causes on behalf of children and adults.

Yosemite chief, facing staff claims of harassment, to retire by Scott Smith And Matthew Brown, The Associated Press Posted Sep 29, 2016 12:51 pm MDT Last Updated Sep 29, 2016 at 5:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FRESNO, Calif. – The head of Yosemite National Park will retire after employees complained that he created a hostile workplace by allowing bullying, harassment and other misconduct — allegations that have been made in other national parks, officials said Thursday.Superintendent Don Neubacher announced his plan Wednesday, said Andrew Munoz, a spokesman for the National Park Service.Neubacher said in an email to Yosemite employees that regional administrators had decided it was time for new leadership and offered to transfer him to Denver as a senior adviser.His decision to retire came less than a week after a congressional oversight committee said at least 18 Yosemite staffers had complained of a toxic work environment.The hearing also spotlighted wider allegations of sexual harassment, bullying and other misconduct among employees at Yellowstone, Grand Canyon and Canaveral National Seashore in Florida.Neubacher headed Yosemite for nearly seven years and spent 37 years with the park service.He did not respond to requests for comment but said in the email to workers provided to The Associated Press that his retirement is effective Nov. 1 and he will go on leave immediately.“I regret leaving at this time, but want to do what’s best for Yosemite National Park,” he wrote. “It is an iconic area that is world renowned and deserves special attention.”Neubacher did not mention the workplace allegations but he did list several accomplishments at the park under his leadership, including restoring native species such as the Western Pond turtles and winning approval to improve conditions along the park’s two wild rivers.In May, Grand Canyon National Park superintendent Dave Uberuaga also chose retirement over a transfer after being told the park needed new leadership to address a longstanding pattern of sexual harassment and other workplace hostility.At the recent congressional hearing, Kelly Martin, Yosemite’s fire chief, testified that Neubacher publicly humiliated her and intimidated staffers in front of others.“In Yosemite National Park today, dozens of people, the majority of whom are women, are being bullied, belittled, disenfranchised and marginalized,” Martin said in written testimony.Yosemite employees described “horrific working conditions (that) lead us to believe that the environment is indeed toxic, hostile, repressive and harassing,” the park service said in a preliminary report last month.Neubacher sent an apology email to all park employees days after the hearing, referencing “some serious staff concerns related to Yosemite’s workplace environment.”U.S. House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz said in an interview Wednesday, prior to Neubacher’s retirement announcement, that he was concerned about a “corrosive culture” that tolerates sexual harassment within the National Park Service and has been allowed to persist too long.The Utah Republican expressed dismay that those responsible for the misconduct — either directly or because it occurred under their watch — had not been punished sufficiently and instead were promoted or shifted to other positions.Chaffetz and other lawmakers have said problems at Yosemite are exacerbated because Neubacher’s wife, Patricia Neubacher, is deputy director for the agency’s Pacific region, which includes Yosemite.The inspector general of the U.S. Interior Department has launched investigations into conditions at Yosemite and Yellowstone.The agency has grappled with sexual harassment since at least 1999, when then-Director Robert Stanton appointed a task force focused on problems faced by women in park law enforcement.The task force surveyed female employees and concluded that the park service was an organization in crisis with systemic mistreatment of women.Fifty-two per cent of the women employees surveyed said they had personally experienced sexual harassment while working for the park service.The park service currently has almost 25,000 employees, with about 63 per cent of them men.___Brown reported from Billings, Montana.
Note the drop-off as players enter their 30s. Only 10.3 percent of majors have been won after age 29 and a mere 3.3 percent after age 31. In tennis, the “wrong side of 30” is a harsh place to be.If we consider only retired players (keeping active players skews the distribution younger), the mean champion age is 25.16.3The aging profiles for both Nadal and Federer have closely paralleled the typical one. We can see this by combining their grand slam titles and looking at the distribution by age. Using their exact ages upon winning, this works out to an average age of 24.57 for a title win, a little below the retired champion average of 25.16, with room to increase if either win subsequent titles. This places Nadal nearly three years past his prime. And Federer is ancient at 32!The only players older than Federer to win a major were Andrés Gimeno, who won the 1972 French Open at 34, and the ageless Ken Rosewall, who won majors at 33 (’68 French), 35 (’70 U.S.), 36 (’71 Australian) and 37 (’72 Australian). Agassi won the 2003 Aussie just shy of Federer’s age (32 years, 9 months). With only six of 184 titles won by players 32 or older since 1968, it’s clear that Federer’s window is closing fast.So, who finishes with more hardware? Let’s first determine how good each player is relative to prior champions at their respective ages. We’ll determine a player’s age-adjusted performance ratio as the number of championships won through his age divided by the majors won by the average champion. For example, through age 27, Nadal has won 13 majors, while the average champion that age had won 2.43.4All figures here are rounded to two places of significance, but the full numbers were used in the calculations. The result is the same. Dividing Nadal’s wins by this average, we get a performance ratio of 5.35. To determine the expected additional titles we’d expect Nadal to win, we can take the product of this multiplier and the average champ’s wins after age 28 — 0.65 — for a total of 3.48, yielding Nadal a projected total of 16.48 titles, just a tad bit short of Roger’s current 17.We can use the same methodology to calculate Federer’s total projected career majors. With two of the season’s four majors remaining before his 33rd birthday, we’ll declare him as effectively 32.5 years old. We’ll take his 17 titles divided by the 2.96 won by the average champ through age 32.5 to get a performance ratio of 5.74. As the average player can expect 0.13 majors won after 32.5, Federer’s projected career titles is 17 + (5.74 * 0.13) = 17.75.To determine the likelihood Nadal passes Fed, we’ll need to determine the range of championships he’s likely to win. We can use the binomial theorem5The binomial theorem is a powerful tool used for calculating the probability of k events occurring over N trials, given the probability, p, of success in a single trial. It allows us to take, for example, Nadal’s future probability of winning k = 3 additional tournaments over N = 40 trials (10 years at championship level times 4 tourneys per year), given that he has an average probability of winning p = 8.55 percent of tournaments entered. This yields a probability, P, of 22.61 percent.Further reading on binomial distributions can be found here. A binomial calculator can be found at Stattrek. to help us.During the Open era, winners have ranged from age 17 to 37. Hence, based on the age curve, Nadal has 10 years left at championship contention level. With four tourneys per year, he’s got 40 remaining opportunities to win. As we saw earlier, the average retired champ won 0.65 titles from 28 on, reflecting a win probability per tourney of 1.63 percent.Multiplying by Rafa’s performance ratio, 5.34, we can speculate that his odds of winning are about 8.7 percent per tourney. If we want to calculate his odds of attaining, for example, three additional majors, we can plug these numbers into the binomial model to get the odds. In this case, Nadal has a 22.61 percent chance of finishing with precisely 17 titles.The table below summarizes the potential outcomes based on this model. The outside cells represent the probabilities of each player finishing his career with a particular number of championships. Nadal’s probabilities are listed in the rows on the right, while Federer’s are represented horizontally along the top. The cells in the center represent the joint probabilities of the varied individual outcomes. Cells in yellow represent the status quo — that Federer remains ahead — while the gray cells represent a tie, and the blue cells indicate Nadal passing Federer.The odds of Nadal finishing at precisely 16 titles and Federer at 17 are a little under 15 percent. That’s also the most probable of the individual scenarios. Overall, there’s about a 61 percent chance that Federer ends his career ahead of Nadal, and about a 17 percent chance they end in a tie.It looks like somewhat of a long shot for Nadal to pass Federer (close to a 22 percent chance), but if he were to have a strong summer and win two of the three majors remaining in 2014, he’d greatly improve his chances. Then again, failing to win even the French would be a serious blow — especially if Federer could pull off another win this year.This French Open, along with the remaining majors this year, will tell us a lot about who eventually ends up atop the leaderboard. The conversation as to who’s the greatest of all time doesn’t end there, of course. It probably starts there, though, and whoever of these two ends up on top is likely to hold that title for many years to come. Over the next few days, Rafael Nadal will attempt to win his ninth French Open and become only the third male player to achieve 14 major championships, tying Pete Sampras and moving within three of Roger Federer’s record of 17. He’d be the first to win a particular major nine times, and, at barely 28 years old, he’d be just shy of Federer’s pace in reaching the milestone (Federer won his 14th major at 27 years, 10 months).Federer, now 32, may or may not have another major in him. Tennis is a young man’s game — much more so than many other sports. In golf, for example, many players don’t win their first major until their 30s; since 2009, the PGA has seen 13 of 21 majors won by players 30 and older (and three were over 40). In football, quarterbacks have played well deep into their 30s — Peyton Manning (38) and Tom Brady (37) are still among the best in their sport.In tennis, however, many legends were done winning Grand Slam events by their mid-20s — Boris Becker’s last of six was at age 28. Mats Wilander won his seventh and final major at 24. John McEnroe (7) and Björn Borg (11) were done at 25. Even Jimmy Connors (8), famed for his longevity — he made his famous run to the semis at the U.S. Open in 1991 at age 39 — won his final major, the 1983 U.S. Open, at 31.The aging curve for men’s tennis does appear to have shifted in the past few years, with more 30-somethings on tour remaining in contention.1I gathered age data on the top 10 players by year and track their average age, going back as far as possible, to 1973. The ATP’s website provided me with birthdate data, and Tennis28.com tracks year-end rankings. There are currently two top 10 players in their 30s — Federer and David Ferrer, both 32. Their presence has helped skew the average age of a top 10 player to its highest point since the early 1970s. Although Federer’s presence in the top 10 is a reflection of his great career, Ferrer’s ranking is a bit of an anomaly. But he still hasn’t won a major, and if he dips from the top 10, the group’s average age will quickly move closer to the normal range.Connors hung around in the top 10 until he was 36, but he was done winning majors at 31. It may be possible to play at a top-10 level into one’s 30s, but the majors — with best-of-five set matches versus the best-of-three format on the typical tourney — more rigorously test not just the skill of the player, but also his endurance. Empirically speaking, players in their 20s still tend to win these events — since 2000, a player over 30 has won a major only four times: Andre Agassi twice (30 and 32), Sampras (31) and Federer (30).So with Rafa turning 28 on Tuesday, is he a sure thing to equal or surpass Federer’s 17 titles? How likely is Fed to win any more?By analyzing the full data set of champions by age during the Open era, starting at the French Open of 1968, we can show the ascent, plateau and drop-off in performance as players mature and decline. Building upon this, we can make some predictions about how Nadal and Federer will perform over the remainder of their careers.The chart below shows the distribution of major championships grouped by player age.2This data set reflects 184 events won by 47 different players.
Leica Geosystems Mining is officially launching its Latin American office at the Expomin show in Santiago, Chile, being held from 9-13 April 2012. The office will operate under the Leica Geosystems name. In 2007 Leica Geosystems purchased Jigsaw Technologies, a leading fleet management and high precision guidance technology provider, and has been operating out of that business until now. The company said the latest launch “heralds a move to clarify the nature of the business and its global standing.” A bank of new products, the Leica Jigsaw product suite, which are part of the amalgamation of both companies’ technology, has also been released, covering fleet management, production optimisation, high precision guidance and autonomous systems. The Jigsaw suite also includes the Jigsaw Positioning System, powered by Locata, which is an alternative positioning to system to GPS.Leica Geosystems Mining is the only official Leica Geosystems office in Latin America, inclusive of its presence in Peru. It provides the global reach and expertise of the Leica Geosystems and Hexagon Group. The company states: “Only through us will have the ability to see the latest and best products for mining.” Leica Geosystems does have smaller distributors of various Leica Geosystems products in the region (primarily for construction), such as Cientec. They are represented on a separate stand at Expomin and are neither owned by, or are a part of, Leica Geosystems or the Hexagon Group. As such they do they offer the Jigsaw portfolio of products for mining. As a part of the Latin American launch, Leica Geosystems Mining will be revealing the Jigsaw solution for Autonomous Mining (J3autonomous). Leica J3autonomous provides semi and fully autonomous solutions for dozers, trucks and other mining equipment and differs to its competitor systems in a number of pertinent areas. While a general release has been issued to some global publications and the Australian market, J3autonomous has not been released in Latin America until now.Another focus on the Leica stand will be the “revolutionary” J3chaos robot – a high mobility, completely remote-controlled robotic unit that Leica states has “immense, customisable flexibility.” J3chaos is an entirely unique offering through Leica Geosystems’ partnership with ASI (Autonomous Solutions Inc). With the 2010 Copiapo mining accident at the San Jose copper-gold mine capturing global attention of the world, safety is very much in focus – not only in the Latin American region, but also globally. In a move to offer a safer working environment, Leica Geosystems Mining partnered with ASI to offer fully and semi-autonomous remote-controlled mining operations. The J3chaos robotic platform is a remote-controlled robot that can fit into smaller and more spaces than any other, and as such is ideally suited to underground mining. The new Latin American office has a specific focus on this technology.In other technology areas, the result of a strategic partnership with alternative positioning expert Locata Corporation is the Leica Jps ground-based high precision guidance network. Powered by Locata, this technology has seen a significant amount of interest across multiple disciplines. Whereever GPS, GLONASS or other signals are unavailable, Jps can run, either independently or by augmenting the traditional signals, for no downtime due to signal loss. Leica Geosystems Mining offers it exclusively to the mining industry globally. Expomin 2012 sees the release of the dual Jps unit – the next step in Locata technology for mining.
Evelyn Yanez points to pictures and says the Yup’ik name of the animal, object or activity, during a Yup’ik immersion program for infants to 5-year-olds in the village of Igiugig. (Photo by Avery Lill/KDLG)Four kids toddle around a cozy room. There are all the items typical for a pre-kindergarten classroom — stuffed animals, puzzles and teachers.Listen nowThe puzzles are the kind with a hole cut out for each piece, and each piece is labeled in Yup’ik.School has been underway in the village of Igiugig for a couple of weeks now. This year even the youngest set are included.The village has opened its only early childhood education program, Unglu. It is a Yup’ik immersion program for infants to five-year-olds.Unglu means “nest.” It’s a part of the larger endeavor, Wangkuta Qanriarait Nanvarparmiut Yugestun, which means “We all speak Lake Iliamna Yup’ik.”The village started the project with an $850,000 Language Preservation and Maintenance Grant from U.S. Administration for Native Americans.The grant is in its third and final year.For the past two years, language apprentices have learned the language from elders who speak Yup’ik fluently.Apprentices have also taught in the village school 30 minutes a day, four days a week during the school year. Now, they are expanding their efforts, and elders and apprentices are teaching a handful of toddlers three hours a day, five days a week.“It’s far more than language. It’s spiritual, mental and physical,” project director AlexAnna Salmon said. “It’s everything into becoming what the Yupik really were,”The vision behind Unglu is for kids to learn to speak Yup’ik from their earliest days.Loretta Peterson grew up speaking English, so she is learning her native language alongside her 16-month old daughter.“It’s just better for her to grow up with her original language. I only knew a small handful of words before I started,” Peterson said.And the kids are learning.They dance to the Yup’ik songs and listen as instructors point to pictures and say the names of animals and activities in Yup’ik.Most of children are too young to talk, but when Salmon told her son to point to different parts of his body, like his knees and toes. The three-year-old did it without hesitation.
Chiranjeevi Sarja and Chetan in Ranam.PR HandoutChiranjeevi Sarja and Chetan Kumar have responded to the tragedy on the sets of Ranam which took two lives on Friday, 29 March, while leaving one critical due to a cylinder blast.Chiranjeevi Sarja has said that he is in a state of a shock and stated that he was returning to Bengaluru from Mysuru when the incident took place.”I have just heard heard of the tragic incident which has taken place on the sets of #Ranam … firstly Im extremely shocked and saddened to to hear that innocent lives have been lost due to the cylinder blast… secondly i am trying to get in touch with the crew (since i was not actively present on the sets today) … third, i want to thank my well wishers, fans and friends who have called me concerning my well being… thank u all… want to assure that i am doing fine and sorry i couldn’t respond to your calls and messages at that time as i was travelling back to Bangalore from Mysore. God Speed.. JAI ANJANEYA. [sic]” he wrote on Twitter.Actor Chetan has condoled the deaths and assured of doing their bit to the bereaved family. “I was not present on the sets when the unfortunate incident occurred. I am extremely pained that a mother and her daughter have been killed due to the blast. I have gone to Bagalur to condole the deaths of two innocents lives. We stand with the family during their difficult times,” he tweeted.As per TV 9, the film team didn’t have permission to shoot at the site and crew fled following the incident.A 28-year-old Sumana Bhanu and her daughter Ayra Bhanu (7) were the victims of the cylinder explosion in Bagalur. Reports say they were on their way to Sulibele on their car driven by Sumana’s husband Tabrez Khan. As the road was blocked by the film crew, they stepped down from the car to watch the shooting which is when the cylinder exploded.While Khan had a narrow escape, his other daughter is seriously injured and being treated at a hospital.”Case against those responsible for the deaths by not following the procedure will be booked for culpable homicide not amounting to murder under section 304 of the Indian Penal Code. After the incident the entire film have escaped from the spot,” Bangalore Mirror quoted Seemanth Kumar Singh, Additional Commissioner of Police (East), as saying.Ranam is a bilingual movie, directed by V Samudra. Chiranjeevi Sarja, Chetan Kumar and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar are starring in the film.
National Aluminium Company Ltd (Nalco) has decided to buy back 25 percent of its shares from the government, mines secretary Balvinder Kumar told Reuters. The state-controlled enterprise on Monday had discussion on the share price with the government.The government in order to avoid the fiscal deficit for the current financial year has proposed buyback as one of the many alternatives. It has poised itself to sell shares in many public sector enterprises to the tune of Rs. 565 billion ($8.5 billion), said the news agency.The company’s board will soon decide the price at which the shares would be bought back, said the secretary.At the end of the trading session on Monday, Nalco’s stock price stood at Rs. 46.35 per share, valuing the company at Rs. 11.9 lakh crore ($1.8 billion). If bought at the market price, the 25 percent stake is expected to cost $450 million.According to Thomson Reuters data, the government owns 80.93 percent of Nalco.Nalco initially wanted to invest its excess money for expanding its smelter complex worth about $2 billion in Iran, and diversify in sectors such as nuclear energy. In this context, it considered to push back the government proposal for a buyback.However, Nalco chairman Tapan Kumar Chand told Reuters over a text message that the expansion plan would not affect its growth plans.Despite a sharp decline in metal prices and drop in China’s import, which have affected many private companies like Hindalco and Vedanta, Nalco has managed to make money from its primarily export oriented business.Easy access to raw materials such as bauxite, an aluminium ore, has helped the company against many competitors, said Reuters. It added that until earlier this year, the aluminium company held total reserves of Rs. 120 billion, half of which is in cash.
Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh delivered her second, “State of the City,” address March 12, in the chambers of the Baltimore City Council. When Pugh delivered her first State of the City in March 2017, Baltimore was learning about the sordid details connected to the now disgraced Gun Trace Task Force and the city was in the midst of a record breaking year for murder. Those dark days of 2017 have cast a long shadow upon all of us.Sean Yoes (Courtesy Photo)This week, Mayor Pugh argued in cautiously optimistic yet, confident tones that Baltimore is emerging from one of the city’s darkest chapters and is, “A city on the rise.”“I begin my address by reminding all of us of the truly great city we claim as home. Despite too much national attention for all the wrong reasons, we know that our city, known for its irresistible charm is so much more,” Pugh said, alluding to our world class institutions of medicine and education, our sports teams, and a thriving cultural scene, which attracts, “tens of thousands of tourists and residents from neighboring counties…” Then, the mayor delivered her sober summary of last year’s record homicide rate, and the murder and mayhem that has gripped our city for far too long.“Yes, ours is also a city with too much tragedy. Too much crime, too much devastation, sadness and loss,” Pugh said. “Each and every one of those 343 lost due to gun violence in 2017, left behind too many loved ones and the collateral damage done is generational. Too many wounds that will not heal any time soon. I mourn, as all of us do…It must not continue!”And during the speech, Pugh gave significant attention to the corruption within the Baltimore Police Department, some argue is pervasive, embodied most boldly by the nefarious deeds of the now disbanded Gun Trace Task Force, which garnered national headlines.Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh prepares to deliver her “State of the City” address in the chambers of the Baltimore City Council. (Photo by Sean Yoes)“And then, there is that truly awful trial which exposed the very worst of those who betrayed the public trust. The evidence made clear that certain members of our police department were themselves criminals,” Pugh said. “The victimization of our community by those former officers – and the others also implicated – disgraced this police department and disgraced our city. They will now suffer the justice they deserve…The Gun Trace Task Force unit, its renegade culture and the sordid testimony that shocked us every day … will long remind us of one of the most egregious moments in our City’s history…it is a history I vow under my watch never to repeat…We will root out bad police, and we will reform this department…”Pugh went on to talk at length and in some detail about law enforcement reform and her multi-faceted approach (partnering with leaders across the state, including Gov. Larry Hogan), to provide improved public safety for Baltimore. As expected, she heaped praise upon her new Police Commissioner Darryl De Sousa. And she also name checked several of the grassroots groups and individuals that keep the city from being torn asunder, including: UMAR Boxing, No Hooks Before Books, Ray Kelly and the No Boundaries Coalition, Ericka Bridgeford and Baltimore Ceasefire, KEYES Development, Hugs Don’t Shoot, Community Mediation, among others.Ultimately, I thought Mayor Pugh delivered a clear-eyed, thorough assessment of our city’s many manifest ills, and cogently illuminated a plausible path forward (and identified many of the remedies already implemented). One community leader in attendance during the speech (who did not want to be identified in this column), said, “She seems to be finding her stride.”I agree.I’ve been very critical in this column (and on the airwaves) of the Baltimore Police Department and the previous administration and rightfully so. At times I’ve been skeptical of the current administration (publicly and privately), as well.However, I believe the mayor deserves space to manifest her vision for the city we love, not with impunity, but with some patience (minus the snark that sometimes accompanies reporting and analysis).I personally pray, she…we are successful.Sean Yoes is the Baltimore editor of the AFRO American and the host and executive producer of the AFRO First Edition video podcast, which airs Monday and Friday at 5 p.m. on the AFRO’s Facebook page.
Twitter posts can help track riots and other violent events much before they are reported to the police, according to a study which shows that social media can be an invaluable source of information for law-enforcement officials. An analysis of data taken from the London riots in 2011 showed that computer systems could automatically scan through Twitter and detect serious incidents, such as shops being broken into and cars being set alight, before they were reported to the UK Metropolitan Police Service. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe system, developed by researchers at Cardiff University in the UK, could also discern information about where the riots were rumoured to take place and where groups of youths were gathering. The research, published in the journal ACM Transactions on Internet Technology, showed that on an average the computer systems could pick up on disruptive events several minutes before officials and over an hour in some cases.Researchers believe that their work could enable police officers to better manage and prepare for both large and small scale disruptive events. “We have previously used machine-learning and natural language processing on Twitter data to better understand online deviance, such as the spread of antagonistic narratives and cyber hate,” said Pete Burnap from Cardiff University. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”In this research we show that online social media are becoming the go-to place to report observations of everyday occurrences – including social disorder and terrestrial criminal activity,” Burnap said. “This research could augment existing intelligence gathering and draw on new technologies to support more established policing methods,” he said.Researchers analysed 1.6 million tweets relating to the 2011 riots in England, which began as an isolated incident in Tottenham on August 6 but quickly spread across London and to other cities in England, giving rise to looting, destruction of property and levels of violence not seen in England for more than 30 years. They used a series of machine-learning algorithms to analyse each of the tweets from the dataset, taking into account a number of key features such as the time they were posted, the location where they were posted and the content of the tweet itself. Results showed that the machine-learning algorithms were quicker than police sources in all but two of the disruptive events reported. When the first reports of disorder occurring in Enfield were received by the police, the researchers showed that their system could have picked up this information from Twitter one hour and 23 minutes earlier.Scientists are continually looking to the swathes of data produced from Twitter, Facebook and YouTube to help them to detect events in real-time. Estimates put social media membership at about 2.5 billion non-unique users, and the data produced by these users have been used to predict elections, movie revenues and even the epicentre of earthquakes.

Comments Share CAIRO (AP) — The words of the pro-government TV talk show host left no room for debate. President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi is synonymous with Egypt, he lectured his audience, and Egyptians are either on his side or are enemies of the nation.“Whoever has a problem living in this country should grab his passport and leave,” said the TV host, Tamer Amin, telling viewers no one should complain about price hikes, power outages or other problems. “No one is certain now that we are on the right path or that there is hope at the end of a long tunnel,” prominent analyst Abdullah el-Sinawy, known for being close to the military, wrote last week in a column that harshly scrutinized el-Sissi’s legacy so far.El-Sissi “does not have a magic wand to solve the insurmountable problems,” el-Sinawy wrote, but he said el-Sissi should do more to break with the Mubarak era. He pointed to how Mubarak-era businessmen have regained the power and impunity they enjoyed under the former president.El-Sissi became Egypt’s most powerful figure when, as army chief, he led the July 2013 military ouster of the country’s first freely elected president, Mohammed Morsi, after massive public protests against Morsi and the political domination of his Muslim Brotherhood. A bloody crackdown ensued, killing hundreds of Islamists.Praised by many Egyptians as a hero for “rescuing” the country from the Brotherhood, el-Sissi vowed from the start to bring security and repair the economy, saying outright that demands for rights and needless political debate cannot be allowed to undermine those goals. That message vaulted him into the presidency in elections, and he was inaugurated on June 8, 2014. 5 greatest Kentucky Derby finishes Meeting recently with party leaders, el-Sissi said parliamentary elections would be held by the end of the year, according to his spokesman. But he also told them he would be prepared to back a coalition encompassing all the parties, suggesting he does not want an opposition bloc in the next legislature.“The nation’s legislative institution has disappeared, political party activism is suspended and no one is left on the scene except the president,” wrote Cairo university political scientist Ahmed Abed-Rabbo in a recent article.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. “The inclination (by the judiciary) has consistently been to reach a guilty verdict, not acquittals,” said Mohamed Abdel-Aziz, who represents the defendants.Further intimidating any critics, prosecutors now aggressively investigate almost any complaint raised by “concerned citizens” against people suspected of supporting Islamists, criticizing the judiciary, the presidency or religion — all potentially criminal acts.Flashing the four-finger sign symbolizing support for the Brotherhood, now outlawed and labeled a terrorist group, has led to trials and jail sentences. With authorities concerned about showing they back public piety even as they crack down on Islamists, writing irreverently on Islam or shows of atheism online have been a cause for arrest.El-Sissi’s rise to power was accompanied by a wave of nationalism not seen in Egypt since the country’s wars with Israel between 1948 and 1973. The sentiment has been kept alive with seemingly endless allegations that the Brotherhood is secretly favored by the United States or that secular pro-democracy activists are paid by foreign powers to destabilize Egypt.A populist with a knack for melodramatic gestures, el-Sissi feeds this nationalist sentiment with personal touches of his own and repeated warnings that Egypt faced a host of existential threats. His slogan “long live Egypt” often concludes his speeches — and has even been painted on his presidential plane. Sponsored Stories El-Sissi has been able to bring some improvements to the economy. Egypt’s relations with the United States and Europe have improved after a period of tension, a change attributed in large part to el-Sissi’s stand against Islamic militancy in the region. El-Sissi’s Egypt also has moved closer to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait, bringing billions of dollars in badly needed aid.El-Sissi has accompanied his tough stand on militancy with calls for far reaching reform in Islam’s discourse to weed out extremism and replace it with moderate practices. He has been a driving force behind ongoing efforts to create a joint Arab military force to fight extremism.Security has been more difficult to establish. Army and police are battling Islamic militants concentrated in the strategic Sinai Peninsula, and there are frequent bombings — usually small but sometimes deadly — against security forces in Cairo and other parts of the country.That “war on terrorism” has allowed a freer hand to security agencies and fuels the overwhelming message on television stations that now is not the time for dissent.Die-hard supporters in the media demonize critics, accusing them of treason or being on the payroll of foreign powers. One private TV channel has aired recordings of private telephone conversations by political activists and rights campaigners, apparently leaked by security officials, to discredit them. TV hosts — or even shows — seen as insufficiently supportive of the government have been taken off the air. Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall 5 things to look for when selecting an ophthalmologist Top Stories Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober A year after the general-turned-politician took office in a landslide election win, el-Sissi largely has silenced political opposition and is trying to run the country as a one-man show, a far cry from the democracy millions dreamed of when they toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak in a stunning 2011 uprising.A nation of some 90 million people, Egypt has had no parliament since 2012, political parties are quiescent and elections for a new legislature have been repeatedly delayed — meaning there’s little concrete debate on policy. Laws simply are issued by the presidency.Police and powerful security agencies act with near impunity against opponents or those trying to engage in unwelcome political activity. Rights activists report a return of torture, abuses and arbitrary arrests surpassing even the 29-year Mubarak era. A strict law against protests in place since late 2013 effectively silenced street demonstrations.The judiciary also has backed the security agencies’ heavy hand in ways unseen under Mubarak’s rule. Courts hand out mass death sentences — about 1,500 so far by some estimates — against Islamists, thousands of whom are in prison in a nearly 2-year-old crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood. Secular and leftist pro-democracy activists are jailed as well, some given long prison sentences for even small, peaceful protests. He still seems to enjoy strong popularity among large sectors of the population who see him as the only figure strong enough to lead. What grumbling that has become public largely come from supporters like el-Sinawi, warning him that he needs to show progress and change.Some have debated whether el-Sissi supports the silencing of dissent or can’t impose his will on the many centers of power in the Egyptian state, which he needs for support and which have their own agendas — like the judiciary, the media, wealthy businessmen and the security agencies.“State institutions are the most powerful and dangerous opposition to el-Sissi,” read the headline of a column this week by Ibrahim Issa, a prominent commentator close to the government.“What the president says and what happens on the ground are two different things,” Issa wrote in the Al-Maqal newspaper.Issa’s assertion highlights the strength and resilience of Egypt’s “deep state,” the term many pro-democracy activists use for the powerful state bodies like the military, police and judiciary that have their own independent power and interests. El-Sissi is no outsider to the deep state, but his repeated demands for change and hard work and warnings that prosperity won’t come overnight could run against those institutions’ interests. Check your body, save your life Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility FILE – In this Sunday, Feb. 22, 2015, file photo, provided by the Egyptian Presidency, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi waves during a visit to the Suez Canal in Ismailia, Egypt. A year after the general-turned-politician took office after a landslide election win, el-Sissi has effectively shut down politics and is running the country as a one-man show, a far cry from the democracy millions dreamed of when they toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak in a stunning 2011 uprising. (Egyptian Presidency via AP, File) Non-governmental organizations, which had a relatively wide leeway under Mubarak, are now under heavy security scrutiny and in some cases have halted any controversial activities. Multiple international rights organizations have left the country.Prominent rights lawyer Negad Borai was questioned three times by prosecutors over the past two weeks because he and other activists drew up a proposed law against torture and sent it to el-Sissi’s office for consideration. Two senior judges who were briefly consulted on the draft are likely to be disciplined by judiciary authorities.“Our predicament is deep. In Egypt, the only crime that goes unpunished is torture,” Borai said.Some supporters of el-Sissi have called for the anti-protest law, which requires that any demonstration get prior police approval, be lifted or amended. But el-Sissi has staunchly stood by it. The law’s proponents argue it prevents the constant protests that had disrupted life since 2011.After one court recently issued a rare acquittal of a group of activists charged under the law, prosecutors immediately appealed in a show of the state’s zero tolerance policy. The activists had been charged because of a small Cairo gathering in January in which one participant — a young mother — was shot dead by police.

By Bejay BrowneA cultural foundation will be established in Paphos to create and promote events in the town, the mayor announced at an event at Palia Ilektriki.Phedonas Phedonos shared his thoughts and ideas for creating such an establishment to an audience made of representatives from various established cultural associations and members of the public, a spokesman for Paphos municipality told the Cyprus Mail.“The idea was already there after our cultural capital title of Pafos2017, the municipal council decided some time ago on this matter, but it has taken some time to prepare all of the necessary things and now the mayor has started the conversation with the public to gauge the first reactions, ideas and suggestions.”He added that this is in order to be prepared to discuss the matter further with the municipal council to then proceed to establish the foundation.Phedonos said that the entity will be established and supported by the municipality but that it will act independently.“This is a unique Pancyprian project, as the foundation will have an independent Board of Directors, its own Artistic Director and staff, and will also be responsible for the management of cultural infrastructures,” he informed the audience.The foundation will be operated along the same lines as Pafos2017, with its Artistic Director and board of directors nominated by members of the council.“It will be totally independent though and it is necessary to take this move to ensure that the cultural life of Paphos will continue to go on,” said the spokesman.The mayor said that the foundation will also be responsible for the production and organisation of a number of various events already taking place in Paphos, such as opera, parades, carnivals and religious celebrations, and will eventually be responsible for organising new events, not excluding the possibility of creating a new theatre.“The matter will be discussed at the next council meeting and I believe they are keen to establish it as soon as possible,” he said.The mayor made it clear that many issues have to be clarified through dialogue which is now underway, such as staff issues, how to manage infrastructure and so on.The spokesman said that, obviously, the board of directors would be Cypriot, but that wider community and other nationalities would be able to get involved by volunteering, as they did with Pafos2017. However, he added that this would be the job of the new artistic director to decide.A number of follow-up open audiences in support of this initiative, and thoughts and proposals on how to implement it, will take place in the near future.The mayor also invited representatives of the cultural institutions of the town and interested members of the public to submit their proposals and opinions in writing within one week to: email@example.com You May LikeYahoo SearchThe Early Signs Of Type 2 Diabetes.

By Elias HazouCYPRUS has reserved areas in the eastern Mediterranean for gas drilling operations, energy minister Cyprus reserves drilling areas revealed yesterday.Cypriot authorities have issued a NAVTEX (Navigational Telex) reserving areas within Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone, in international waters.Lakkotrypis said the areas reserved are in offshore blocks 2, 3 and 9. He did not get more specific, although local media identified the areas as one in Block 9 – encompassing a gas field dubbed “Onasagoras” – and the other overlapping Blocks 2 and 3, incorporating the field known as “Zenon.”This appeared to confirm earlier reports naming “Onasagoras” as the site of the first well to be drilled by the Italian-Korean consortium ENI-KOGAS, which has concessions on offshore blocks 2, 3 and 9.The consortium is contractually obliged to drill at least four wells.Lakkotrypis said that ENI’s drilling programme will span 12 to 18 months, depending on the finds, with each drill lasting about 80 days, at a depth of between 5,000 to 5,500 meters.The Mail understands the NAVTEX covers two areas for exploration, it is effective for three months and expires on December 3, at which point it will likely be renewed. Given that each drill will run for approximately 80 days, as the minister noted, the NAVTEX is intended to cover drilling operations at more than one sites during this time.Lakkotrypis said the fact the drilling rig will be staying offshore Cyprus for a continuous period of 12 to 18 months gives the gas companies greater flexibility in their drilling programme.The drilling platform is currently en route to Cyprus from Mozambique. The rig is owned by Saipem, an Italian oil services group and a subsidiary of ENI.Lakkotrypis declined comment on expectations of gas finds in the wells earmarked by ENI. But reports have suggested seismic survey results are encouraging.During this second drilling cycle – after Noble Energy’s operations in Block 12 – Cyprus hopes to discover significant quantities of recoverable gas, which would put back on track plans for a land-based facility to liquefy the gas for exports.Lakkotrypis said also he would be traveling to Amman on Monday for separate meetings with his Jordanian counterparts, the ministers of tourism, commerce and energy.Without going into detail, he hinted that Jordan may be interested in Cypriot gas in the long term, noting that he discussed this with his Jordanian counterpart during a conference in Malta in July.“The Jordanian minister extended an invitation to initiate this kind of discussion, as both Jordan and Egypt are planning construction of de-liquefaction terminals but also natural gas pipelines.“Therefore all prospects will be discussed during these one-on-one meetings,” said Lakkotrypis, who last month was in Cairo discussing potential energy cooperation with Egypt.The minister downplayed the notion that Cypriot plans to export gas have been derailed following a preliminary agreement signed this week between neighbours Israel and Jordan.A group of Israeli energy companies said on Wednesday they signed a letter of intent to sell natural gas to a Jordanian power company, in a potentially multibillion-dollar deal.The Israeli companies said they would supply 45 billion cubic meters of gas over 15 years from the offshore Leviathan field to Jordan’s state-owned National Electric Power Co.The Israel-Jordan deal does not adversely impact Cyprus’ plans, Lakkotrypis insisted, since it was already known that the first development stage of Israel’s Leviathan gas field involved regional gas sales.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado 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 Taboola
