As the United Nations General Assembly wrapped up its sixty-first session today, the outgoing president, Sheikha Haya Rashed Al Khalifa of Bahrain, urged greater focus in the years ahead on dialogue among civilizations before passing the gavel to her successor, Srgjan Kerim of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.“From my perspective, as the only woman President for a generation, and the first from the Arab world, I have come to see the United Nations as a global family – a family that is becoming ever more interdependent,” said Sheikha Haya. She acknowledged that differences will naturally arise but emphasized that “it is only in the spirit of collective responsibility that we can take further steps to build greater trust and cooperation.”The President called for all concerned to accept their shared responsibilities and work together for positive change. “More than ever before, we need to focus on the underlying lack of dialogue between civilizations, cultures and nations that is at the core of many of today’s problems,” she said.“We must tackle these issues squarely and, in doing so, we will have to move beyond the outdated mindset that separates the world into donors and recipients – North and South.”Sheikha Haya, the first female General Assembly President since 1969 and the first Muslim woman to hold the post, has long emphasized the need to bridge the gap between Islam and the West. ‘Civilizations and the challenge for peace’ was the theme of one of several thematic debates she organized during the session to revitalize thinking on various issues.On taking office last year, Sheikha Haya told reporters: “It does not matter that I am a Muslim or a Christian or Jewish. We are human beings and we have the same worries and we have the same problems.”In her speech today, Sheikha Haya thanked Assembly members for their support during the past year and welcomed her successor, the president-elect of the 62nd session of the General Assembly, Mr. Kerim.The incoming president is “an accomplished academic, a captain of industry, and an experienced diplomat. He is also a great believer in the United Nations.”At the invitation of Sheikha Haya, Mr. Kerim, a former foreign minister and UN ambassador with international experience in academia, took the podium and received the presidential gavel from Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.President Kerim will use this gavel for the first time tomorrow afternoon to officially open the Assembly’s sixty-second session. In recent interviews, he has stressed his plans to focus the session on five main themes: responding to climate change; financing for development; implementing the global counter-terrorism strategy; advancing on management reform; and following up on achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). 17 September 2007As the United Nations General Assembly wrapped up its sixty-first session today, the outgoing president, Sheikha Haya Rashed Al Khalifa of Bahrain, urged greater focus in the years ahead on dialogue among civilizations before passing the gavel to her successor, Srgjan Kerim of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
27 March 2009Despite recent elections and the establishment of new government in their homeland, thousands of Somalis are continuing to flee to north-eastern Kenya, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) reported today. Despite recent elections and the establishment of new government in their homeland, thousands of Somalis are continuing to flee to north-eastern Kenya, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) reported today. More than 20,000 Somalis have been registered in Kenya’s Dadaab refugee camps since the start of 2009. Several of the new arrivals told UNHCR that they left due to rising insecurity, coupled with drought and food shortages. “Many also express little optimism for the return of peace to their country in the near term,” UNHCR spokesperson Ron Redmond told reporters in Geneva. “Despite the recent elections held in Djibouti which saw a new Government come to power, many parts of Somalia are still insecure.”Somalia, which has been beset by factional strife since the overthrow of Siad Barre in 1991, has witnessed a number of positive developments in recent months, including the creation of an expanded Parliament, the election of President Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed and the formation of the Unity Government.At the same time, the UN estimates that over 3 million people, a third or more of the total population, will remain dependent on humanitarian assistance this year.According to UNHCR, more than half of the new arrivals to Dadaab are women and children, some having travelled as much as 800 kilometres over 16 days by foot to reach the camps. Mr. Redmond said UNHCR is continuing to receive new arrivals at Kenya’s sprawling and overcrowded Dadaab refugee complex. Designed nearly two decades ago to accommodate a total of 90,000 people, the complex currently houses over 261,000. There are concerns that the upcoming rainy season, set to begin in early April, could put additional constraints on the already congested camps.The agency and the Kenyan Government are finalizing plans for the construction of new camps to ease the burden on the Dadaab site. “It is crucial for the Government to provide us with land as soon as possible, where we can build other camps and thus decongest the existing camps and prepare for more people if the current arrival trend continues,” Mr. Redmond stated.

He became the first wideout in his Buckeyes’ 2018 class, though L’Christian Smith — who is listed as an athlete — will also likely play receiver in college.Babb is the ninth-highest ranked player in Ohio State’s recruiting class. He will enter a crowded receiver room, for none of the six wideouts who have been listed as starters this season are seniors.Never would’ve thought I’d be in the position I’m in today, anything is possible with God..

Ohio State junior forward Alexa Hart attempts a jump shot in the first half against Illinois at the Schottenstein Center on. Jan. 22. Credit: Jacob Myers | Assistant Sports EditorThe Ohio State women’s basketball team has struggled this season in terms of playing with consistency from quarter to quarter. But Thursday’s nine-point victory against Wisconsin was a night-and-day difference between Sunday’s game.Ohio State’s high-scoring offense returned on Sunday with 15 3-pointers, defeating Illinois 88-64 to improve to 17-5 and 7-1 in Big Ten play. The Fighting Illini dropped to 8-12 overall, 3-4 in conference.“We looked like our self a little bit more today,” said OSU coach Kevin McGuff. In the Buckeyes last three games, they have been scoring below their season average of 86.3 ppg by at least 10 points. However, the tone was different this game.Led by junior guard Kelsey Mitchell who picked up 22 points with two rebounds and six assists, OSU put together a cohesive effort against the Illini. Redshirt sophomore guard Sierra Calhoun added 11, and junior guard Asia Doss and freshman guard Kiara Lewis had 10.OSU always plays better when Mitchell has a good day from the field (7 for 14, 6 of 12 from 3), but her production also benefitted others — something that hasn’t always been the case for the Buckeyes.“Everybody was focused on Kelsey and it left other people open, and we hit open shots,” Lewis said.Illinois came off the tip scoring three straight field goals. However, the quick burst of momentum did not last long, as the Buckeyes proceeded to score 13 straight points midway through the quarter. “We moved the ball, we made the extra pass much more today,” McGuff said.Illinois came out in a 2-3 zone, which OSU quickly dissected, finding open players around the arc, helping contribute to four straight made shots from downtown. A 43.8 percent mark from the field gave OSU a lead at the end of the first it would never relinquish. The Buckeyes started the second quarter a little slow, but were able to find their rhythm ending the quarter with four straight 3s in the last minute. OSU ended the quarter on a 12-2 run. It started when McGuff went with a bigger lineup having junior forward Alexa Hart, redshirt junior forward Stephanie Mavunga and Calhoun all on the floor. Hart scored a bucket in the paint followed by Mavunga. This brought in the zone for Illinois where junior guard Kelsey Mitchell proceeded to hit three straight triples and assist on the final 3 by Asia Doss before the half. OSU ended the second quarter with a 12-2 run as the team’s went to the locker room for halftime. OSU came out of the third quarter playing at a different intensity than Illinois. The Buckeyes were able to score from all angles — the free throw line, behind the arc, in the paint and off the fast break. Offensively, an up-tempo approach of pushing the ball on the fast break and capitalizing off of layups as well as fouls from driving inside kept the game well in hand late. Eventually, OSU ended the quarter going on another huge run, this time 23-4.“Our full court pressure really wore on them,” McGuff said. “You could see them wear down as the game went (on).”Mitchell took a hard fall along the sideline in the third, appearing to cut open her lip during her stumble out of bounds. After heading to the locker room, she came back on the court to finish the game. Four different OSU players scored double figures. Additionally, 34 points came from the bench and 14 off of the fast break.The Buckeyes shot 45 percent from both the field and behind the arc. OSU will continue Big Ten play at Minnesota on Thursday at 8 p.m.
MANCHESTER CITY STRIKER Carlos Tevez has been charged for driving while disqualified and without insurance.In a statement, Cheshire police confirmed that the 29-year-old was arrested on the A538 in Macclesfield at 5:13pm on Thursday March 7 and was later released on bail.The Argentina international answered bail today at Middlewich Custody Suite and was formally charged. Tevez will appear before Macclesfield magistrates on April 3.The maximum penalty for driving while disqualified is six months’ imprisonment for a first-time offender. The former Manchester United star was disqualified from driving for six months in January after failing to provide pertinent information after his car was clocked speeding.Tevez, who does not have a UK driving licence, denied he was driving when the car was caught speeding in January and attributed his lack of correspondence with the police to him not understanding the world ‘constabulary’ on official letters.10 out of 10 – Catalan daily Sport gave every Barcelona player a perfect rating todayTimes journalists deny claims Qatar ‘Dream League’ story is a hoax
La pollution de l’air entraînerait 2 millions de morts chaque année selon l’OMSSelon une étude publiée hier par l’Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS), la pollution de l’air engendrerait chaque année plus de deux millions de morts à cause des maladies qu’elle provoque.L’air, pollué, peut passer dans la circulation sanguine via les poumons et entraîner des cardiopathies, des cancers pulmonaires, de l’asthme ou encore des infections respiratoires. C’est ce qu’a indiqué lundi l’Organisation mondiale de la santé à travers une étude qu’elle a elle-même réalisée. Cette pollution provient surtout de sources de combustion, comme les centrales électriques (notamment au charbon) et les véhicules à moteur. À lire aussiLa Méditerranée est officiellement la mer la plus polluée par le plastiqueC’est la raison pour laquelle l’organisation s’est penchée sur la pollution de l’air en se basant sur des données fournies par 1.100 villes dans 91 pays. Et le résultat obtenu s’est avéré assez alarmant dans la mesure où, selon l’organisation, deux millions de personnes mourraient chaque année à cause des maladies engendrées par cette pollution. Selon l’étude, rendue publique hier, sur les deux millions, 1,3 sont décédés en raison de la pollution des villes qui touche autant les pays développés que les pays en développement.Or, selon l’OMS toujours, 1,1 million de morts auraient pu être évitées, si les normes avaient été respectées. En effet, 80 des 91 pays ayant transmis des informations à l’organisation, ne respectent pas les valeurs de référence, en matière de pollution de l’air. Dans de nombreuses villes, la pollution atmosphérique atteint des niveaux dangereux pour la santé. Néanmoins, l’organisation souligne que cette étude reste incomplète dans la mesure où des pays comme la Russie et certains pays africains n’ont pas fourni de données.La marche et le vélo pour réduire la pollution Les zones les plus dangereuses sont situées dans les pays à croissance rapide, comme l’Inde et la Chine, rapporte romandie.com. Dans certaines villes, la concentration des particules fines serait jusqu’à 15 fois supérieure au seuil maximum fixé par l’OMS. Pour le Dr Neira, directrice du département santé publique et environnement de l’OMS, si les pays contrôlent et gèrent l’environnement correctement, nous pouvons réduire considérablement le nombre de gens qui souffrent d’affections respiratoires et cardiaques et de cancer du poumon.Enfin d’après les analyses, les effets les plus graves de la pollution de l’air s’observent chez les personnes déjà malades, les enfants et les personnes âgées. Les solutions proposées par l’OMS pour lutter contre la pollution de l’air sont simples puisque l’organisation recommande le développement des transports publics, promeut la marche et le vélo, ainsi que la construction de centrales utilisant des combustibles autres que le charbon.Le 27 septembre 2011 à 13:18 • Maxime Lambert

Email News Twitter “Champion” Anthem’s RM Remix: So Hard rm-remix-bts-rap-monster-mashes-fall-out-boys-champion Facebook RM Remix: BTS’ Rap Monster Mashes Fall Out Boy’s “Champion” Sometimes hard raps come from unexpected places. Do you think RM delivers on the “Champion” RM Remix?Philip MerrillGRAMMYs Dec 15, 2017 – 5:27 pm It has been said that an entertainer must keep the capacity to surprise, but K-pop shock gets taken up a notch by RM of BTS rapping and singing on a strong remix of Fall Out Boy’s “Champion.”It makes sense that these artists are a good match. The Fall Out Boy Champion Tour has raised money for local charities at each date, while the BTS Love Myself UNICEF Campaign speaks to the weak around the world, encouraging them to find their strength.Fall Out Boy’s songs began being used on movie and television soundtracks in 2003, when RM was 9. While their upbeat stylings blend smoothly, there is something about RM’s rap more evocative of the kind of action Vin Diesel and Donnie Yen bring to the screen. It brings out its own “I can do anything” beam of energy encouraging us all to look to the future.The twist that makes this collab exciting is that even admirers of BTS’ successful last few months of outreach to U.S. audiences might not have realized that RM is called Rap Monster because he actually raps hard. Fall Out Boy’s signature sound is already something to bring young spirits up in people of any age. RM, Kim Nam-joon, is 23 so the authority in his voice as a grown man is no gimmick.First-Ever K-Pop Debut In Top 40: BTS’ “Mic Drop”Read more

Freedom and happiness are intrinsically linked and all of us derive happiness from the freedom to make choices and pursue them. Many theories detail the finer aspects of life’s journey, but most agree that it is indeed a quest for happiness linked to freedom that is not tucked away in the future but experienced along the way. To find who and what makes you happy may seem like a simplistic goal, but it is at one level also the most difficult. Dr Kathleen Hall, an expert in preventive medicine clearly points this out in her book ‘A Life in Balance: Nourishing the Four Roots of True Happiness’. She says, “True happiness is the ultimate feeling of freedom. You experience the freedom of choice when you live from inside out, not allowing your happiness to be defined by the traditional benchmarks but creating your own. Listening to the inner voice and trusting your choices will lead you to a life of happiness.” Personal freedom, however, comes with self-regulation which hinges on clarity about the boundaries of one’s freedom and non-interference with the freedom of another. Free people are happy people, says author Arthur C Brooks but the rider is the responsibility associated with freedom. “Happiness requires that we use freedom responsibly, which means both as individuals and as a nation balancing abundant liberty with healthy personal morality.” Also Read – V Unbeatable reaches semi-final of America’s Got Talent Advertise With Us What then are the issues from which we want freedom as individuals as the nation celebrates the day it became free? While freedom has different connotations for different people, there exist commonalities that most individuals including the millennial generation agree upon as essential to happiness. Topping the charts of the four most important aspects that free individuals from bondage would be health and wellbeing. This includes the stress of negative emotions and dealing with challenging situations that manifest as disease. Holistic health is most essential for experiencing freedom and happiness in one’s chosen field says Dr Swapna Narendra, an Anthroposophic physician. Anthroposophy is a form of alternative medicine devised in the 1920s by Rudolph Steiner and based on a spiritual philosophy that deals with the body-mind connect. “According to Steiner, a person needs to be free of illness in body and soul to manifest his humanity and this healing is aided by education. The core attributes that make man the pinnacle of creation – the ability to think, to feel, to empathise, to have compassion and the will to move mountains if required. This and much more is man,” she emphasises. Also Read – Harshvardhan Rane bonds with the cast Advertise With Us Freedom of choice pertaining to education and career is a matter of concern as the world becomes more competitive and parental expectations become a source of stress for the entire family. The destructive rat race rarely gives joy and is part of life’s travails in which people are drafted to participate without rhyme or reason. A change in mindset accommodating the views of students are mandatory feels P Poornachander Rao, founder NICE (Needy Illiterate Children’s Education) who is aghast that comparison rather than aptitude determines educational choices in the urban landscape. “At our institute children are from poor and underprivileged families who are grateful for the gift of education that is crucial for employment. Most students studying in corporate educational institutions, however, are greatly stressed as they are pursuing studies that they are not interested in because of parental and peer pressure,” he avers. Advertise With Us The freedom to choose one’s course of study and take up interesting careers in a new technologically driven globalised world bursting with a zillion new vocations is a cherished one and addressed very well by the Multiple Intelligence theory propounded by Howard Gardner opines noted educationist and Director, Glendale Academy International, Anjum Babukhan. “We have adopted the MI methodology, which helps students identify their strengths and career paths. Freedom in education is to learn from the smorgasbord where one has a wide array of options,” she adds. Empowered education and career choices we know guide other personal choices as well. Restrictions on speech and expression are stifling in a country where noted writer Amartya Sen’s 2005 book ‘The Argumentative Indian’ remains as relevant as ever. Not being able to have your viewpoint as an individual, not necessarily in an argumentative manner can be a bitter pill to swallow. Family or work environments which do not allow individuals to be themselves are impediments to progress and restrict happiness. This is reflected in either aggressive or withdrawn behaviour. Freedom from this restriction is possible with a shift in attitude says Dr SV Nagnath, Astro-Psychologist. “The problem is we are becoming a ‘feeling-oriented’ society. The feeling is not freedom. Your expression or lack of it is not so important but your patience and persistence are. These qualities can help you create a choice for yourself and put you in a situation where you take responsibility for your action and become free of limitations,” he adds. Discrimination of all kinds create negative feelings and freedom from discrimination based on gender, caste or class is a desirable goal that remains unattained despite the great progress achieved in the many decades since independence. Freedom from gender-based discrimination is possible when women have confidence in themselves and their capabilities according to Dr Alekhya Punjala, eminent dancer and the first woman registrar of the Telugu University. “To be yourself and get recognition for your hard work are very important. Most often people have pre-conceived notions or ideas and expect you to fit into a certain mould based on gender. To overcome bias and constant evaluation and have the freedom to make choices and be respected for them, are crucial to empowerment and true freedom,” she opines. There is however a slight distinction between freedom from something and the freedom to be something. The two sides of the freedom coin are attained only when we change our thoughts as true freedom begins from the heart. Having identified the negatives we need to break the shackles that bind us. Freedom then is not up for sale. It is not to be given. It flows from the heart and can only be experienced.
The guys at Technically Magic, a design and fabrication company that’s builds props for music videos and movies, costumes, and prototype products, decided to share their love of Portal 2 with the world by building Atlas, one of the two co-op robots from the game. He’s not exactly as he appears in the game, but he’s definitely recognizable. The detail on his body and joints is incredible, and he lights up nicely.The designers at TM know their way around their workshop, and they know how to build complex designs from scratch. The detail on Atlas proves it – everything from his feet to his joints shows the level of precision put into carving out, molding, and assembling all of the pieces required to complete the robot.He doesn’t have the same computer controls or sound effects we saw in Trudi the Sentry Turret plush, or in the life-sized sentry turret we looked at earlier this month, but it’s still a work of art. He’s free-standing on his two legs, and while he doesn’t have the same “shoulders” and arms that can be seen in the video game, it’s clear who he is. When you turn off the lights and flip the bot’s switch, the eye in the center of the body glows bright blue, true to character. Aside from the detail on the molding, the impressive thing about this Atlas model is how much character it manages to have, even though it doesn’t speak or move.TM built the bot as part of a competition held by a local GameStop in the Western New York town where the design firm is based. It’s unlikely we’ll ever get the plans or enough detail to go ahead and build an Atlas for ourselves, but TM did put together a gallery of photos you can browse through to see how it was made and the detail that went into its construction.Read more at Technically Magic via Kotaku

Thus, they decided to create Taimi as a tool to strengthen LGBT+ community, to give its members a safe medium for expressing themselves and to promote LGBT+ rights worldwide,’ the developers wrote in a statement.Taimi is a word play on ‘tame me’ which the company hopes will show ‘dedication to building long-term relations between our users’.Its developers hope to foster a sense of community amongst LGBTI people. They said Taimi ‘is created for gay people who are looking for long-term relationships, friends and quality networking’. ‘The app users can easily and safely search for partners as well as interact in other ways by creating posts, discussions, events, corporate and NGO pages. To help users connect closely, Taimi gives them an ability to make video calls inside the app,’ they said. A gay dating app designed by former Silicon Valley workers has some of the tightest security of any dating app. Taimi is the latest gay dating app. | Photo: Supplied GAYSTARNEWS-

The five permanent UN Security Council members are obliged to participate in talks to reunify Cyprus if they want a positive outcome, government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides said on Wednesday following President Nicos Anastasiades’ visit to Russia.Christodoulides said Russia has agreed that SC members should collectively embark on an effort to pave the way for the resumption of the conference on Cyprus, which broke up last July amid disagreements between Greek and Turkish Cypriots.If a resumption was agreed, UNSC members should also participate to help find a solution, the spokesman said, like they did in the case of Iran.The UNSC members could touch upon the issue of ensuring the implementation of a solution, resolving a reasonable concern of the Cypriot people, he said.“They are members of the UNSC, they have responsibilities and obligations; within this framework, they have an obligation to participate, if they really desire positive developments,” Christodoulides told the state broadcaster.“We are not referring to particular members of the UNSC but collectively to all the members,” he added.Following a meeting between Anastasides and Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday, unnamed sources quoted by the Cyprus News Agency said Moscow wanted the five permanent members of the UNSC to take part in a new conference on Cyprus.Christodoulides suggested it was feasible.“Why wouldn’t it be feasible if someone wants a positive outcome?” he said. “Perhaps people who don’t want positive developments don’t view it positively. How can we say the UN will have a role in the procedure to solve the Cyprus problem and not want the UNSC members to be there?”The latest round of reunification talks at the Swiss resort of Crans-Montana took place between June 28 and July 6 but again ended in deadlock over disagreements on security and guarantees.Both sides have since blamed each other for the collapse, while the Greek Cypriots also censured UN special adviser Espen Barth Eide, accusing him of being biased and a liar.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
