If the issue of migration is tackled properly, citizens of developed and developing countries alike will come to understand how its benefits far outweigh the problems it may bring, the Secretary-General said in accepting the Declaration of The Hague, which was produced by the Society for International Development of the Netherlands.”Politicians have a choice to make,” he said, noting that they can embrace the potential that migrants and refugees represent, or instead use them as political scapegoats. The Secretary-General was accompanied at the Declaration’s launch by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Ruud Lubbers.Afterwards at a press encounter, the Secretary-General reiterated his challenge to world leaders not to scapegoat migrants. “For any number of illegal immigrants, there are thousands more who are in our midst legally and when we come up with laws, we have to be careful not to generalize from the particular, come up with laws that are designed to get certain individuals, but be careful that it is not applied to other innocent and law-abiding people in our midst,” he said.The Secretary-General then met with the judges of the International Court of Justice, who reviewed with him their caseload. He briefed them on his meeting with the Presidents of Cameroon and Nigeria last Friday, following the ICJ’s ruling last month on the countries’ dispute over the Bakassi peninsula.After meeting with the leaders of the UN Association of the Netherlands and thanking them for their work, the Secretary-General had a working luncheon with his Special Adviser on Cyprus, Alvaro de Soto.On Sunday, the Secretary-General will leave the Netherlands for France.
Staff who visited the remote Fugnido camp for the first time in weeks described it as still tense, a spokesman for the agency said today. A number of refugees, mainly from minority ethnic groups who were particularly affected by the clashes in November, were found living in desperate conditions. “They lacked basic supplies and had no shelter from the severe, hot and dry weather at this time of year,” Kris Janowski said. “The visiting team immediately distributed plastic sheeting for shelter, jerry cans, blankets and basic kitchen utensils to the affected group.”The ethnic conflict, between the Anuak refugees and the Nuer and Dinka communities, left 42, mainly Dinka, refugees dead and scores wounded. Following the November clashes, aid workers were not permitted to go to the volatile camp for security reasons.On 28 December, 531 refugees were moved from the beleaguered site to Bonga refugee camp, home to nearly 17,000 Sudanese refugees of the Uduk community. Fugnido is home to more than 28,700 people and is the largest of five settlements in southwestern Ethiopia’s Gambella Region, where a total of 85,000 Sudanese are sheltered. The camp was first opened in 1988 but closed in 1991 in the aftermath of civil war that broke out in Ethiopia.
“This programme is a turning point in WFP’s food assistance operations in Iraq,” said Jane Pearce, Representative and Country Director of WFP in Iraq, adding that “we now use innovative technology to deliver a faster humanitarian response that is reliable, flexible and scalable.” These electronic cards, known as SCOPE cards, enable WFP to assist in a timely manner those in need with both cash and vouchers, allowing them to choose, and buy their own food from local shops across the country, as well as collecting actual food from WFP distribution points.“The SCOPE cards give displaced Iraqi families and Syrian refugees the assurance that they can access food when they need it,” said Ms. Pearce, adding that more importantly, “it also gives WFP valuable feedback on the types of food people are buying with the cards, which helps us better tailor our programmes to their needs.” In order to receive the SCOPE cards, people need register their personal information and fingerprints into WFP’s database, which is electronically linked to the cards.Therefore, when a card is swiped at a shop, it automatically connects to the database for identity confirmation, then the cost of the purchase is deducted from the total balance and recorded on a receipt.With the $32 million funding from the European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (ECHO), WFP has launched a pilot project in Akre, in the northern Kurdish region, where thousands of displaced Iraqis and Syrian refugees are sheltering. The conflict in Iraq has triggered mass waves of displacement of more than 3 million Iraqis since January 2014. WFP is currently reaching 1.5 million displaced Iraqis and 70,000 Syrian refugees each month with food assistance.
Ukip was in a state of open civil war on Monday night after Nigel Farage publicly warned that the party will collapse unless its sole MP Douglas Carswell is thrown out.Mr Farage, the former UK Independence Party leader, said Mr Carswell had “sought to split and divide Ukip in every way imaginable” since defecting from the Conservatives to Ukip in 2014.The two men have been at odds for years over the party’s policies but their antipathy came to a head amid claims that Mr Carswell frustrated Mr Farage’s chances of being awarded a knighthood. Mr Farage and Lord Pearson – who had kept the campaign for Mr Farage’s knighthood secret – suggested the email showed that Mr Carswell had not seriously backed the honour.Mr Farage said: “It could not be clearer that Douglas Carswell was negative in his response to the chief whip. He is consumed with jealousy and a desire to hurt both Ukip and me. What a sad figure he cuts.”Lord Pearson said the comments showed that it was “pretty clear [that Mr Carswell] he did not support” Mr Farage’s knighthood.He added: “It is true that I and others tried to get a knighthood for Nigel Farage and one way or another we failed, and we still think he should have one.“I am not going to give up. I am going to go on and try to see whether we can get him a K in the Birthday honours in the summer.” But these plans were dropped when the pair realised Mr Farage would have to resign as an MEP first before being allowed to accept the peerage.Lord Pearson then approached the Cabinet Office’s Parliamentary and political service honours committee about a knighthood for Mr Farage. It turned down the application at the end of July.The peer then asked directly Mr Carswell – who is Ukip’s leader in Westminster – to approach Gavin Williamson, the Government’s chief whip, about appealing the decision to reject Mr Farage’s application.Mr Williamson – as an “official member” of the honours committee – is allowed to recommend honours to MPs who represent minor parties in the Commons. Writing in The Telegraph, Mr Farage said: “As a party, how can we let a man represent us in the House of Commons who actively and transparently seeks to damage us? “I think there is little future for Ukip with him staying inside this party. The time for him to go is now.” Ukip is already facing a crisis after the party’s leader Paul Nuttall failed to win last week’s by election in Stoke-on-Trent, an area in which people voted heavily for Brexit at last year’s referendum. I think there is little future for UKIP with him staying inside this party. The time for him to go is nowNigel Farage Douglas Carswell insisted he had supported Nigel Farage’s knighthood Nigel Farage interviewed by Piers Morgan last weekCredit:Kieron McCarron/ITV Lord Pearson asked Mr Carswell in the middle of December to approach Mr Williamson believing this offered “a sporting chance of getting around this committee”.On December 30th Lord Pearson emailed Mr Carswell saying: “Dear Douglas, Could you let me know how your talk with Gavin Williamson went before Christmas? By phone if you prefer? Good wishes. Malcolm.”Mr Carswell replied the next morning on December 31 – the day the New Year’s honours were announced – saying: “As promised, I did speak to the government Chief Whip. “Perhaps we might try angling to get Nigel an OBE next time round? For services to headline writers? An MBE, maybe?” Lord Pearson replied an hour later: “Dear Douglas, Let’s speak at your convenience. Ring me? Not sure an ‘Other Buggers’ Efforts’ quite hits the spot for Nige……..?! Malcolm”. Last week Mr Farage said he believed Ukip failed to win the Stoke by-election due to its failure to continue its strong message on migration.Now, leaked emails seen by The Telegraph show Mr Carswell mocked Mr Farage’s chances of an honour after it was turned down, saying he should be given an award “for services to headline writers”.Mr Farage said the leaked online exchange showed Mr Carswell was “consumed with jealousy and a desire to hurt me” and urged Paul Nuttall, Mr Farage’s successor, to sack him.However, Mr Carswell insisted the leaked email “confirms that I made every effort to make sure that Ukip got its fair share of peerages and honours”. Mr Nuttall declined to comment.Lord Pearson of Rannoch, Ukip’s former leader, initially tried to organise a peerage for Mr Farage, backed by Ukip peer Lord Willoughby de Broke, last July in the wake of the EU referendum. Mr Carswell insisted he had supported Mr Farage’s knighthood, and urged The Telegraph to publish his email exchange with Lord Pearson.His email showed he was “commiserating with the person who asking me to lobby on behalf of the party” on the day the New Year’s honours were announced.He said: “I would say the emails you have directly contradict those who suggest I was not trying to ensure that Ukip got its share of peerages and honours.“You cannot regard that email as anything other than being supportive that Ukip gets its fair share of peerages and honours. I am not going to say what I did or didn’t say to Gavin Williamson.“Put the email in the public domain and let readers make up their minds. It reinforces my version of events.” Lord Pearson initially tried to organise a peerage for Nigel Farage after the EU referendum in JuneCredit: EDDIE MULHOLLAND for The Telegraph Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

The election is finally out of the way and the government has a big agenda ahead of it. Right out of the gates it has announced a tax review, a financial services review, a competition review, and a review of government spending. Importantly, the government has said it will consult with and wants to hear from businesses. This is a smart move – the business community does most of Australia’s employing, wholesale consuming and production, and the expectation of a Coalition victory last week was cause in itself for businesses to gain some confidence. We saw evidence of this sentiment in the most recent NAB Business Survey, which switched from a -3 confidence score on the economy to a +6 score, in the space of a month. Improved confidence is a good sign, and this new government brings the promise of change. So I wonder which changes business owners would urge on the new government if they had the access and influence. What would you say to our new treasurer, Joe Hockey, if you could spend the next month as his adviser? Don’t assume he wouldn’t listen: Joe Hockey grew up in a family of business owners and understands the issues well, which is evident in the Coalition’s commitment to reducing company tax rate by 1.5 per cent and cutting regulatory burden on business. So where would you start if you had the opportunity to speak up about red tape, competition and other issues that matter to you? Most small business owners would probably start with taxes – there’s too many of them and they’re too high. But which ones would you reduce, which would you scrap and which part of the system would you reform? Most business owners understand that the political stability and regulatory structure we operate within makes it easy and safe to do business in this country; they also know that it doesn’t come free. That means the business tax system has to raise requisite amounts of cash before it concerns itself with fairness or efficiency. It’s the same with red tape. We all want an easier way of doing business, but which red tape do we advise Joe Hockey to cut? Which ones should he streamline and which regulation is working well? Where do you stop when you cut red tape? One area a business owner might urge the treasurer into would be competition policy. Market dominance by large conglomerates can hurt smaller businesses, which generally means prices rise and choice reduces. But is there a solution when large companies dominate? It’s instructive to note that while the confidence survey found an increase in confidence due to the expectation of a new government, some of the component parts of the survey looked quite sickly. Overall business conditions were considered ‘extremely weak’ in mining, manufacturing, retail, construction, wholesale and transport and utilities, all of which scored in the negative range. There are still problems in this economy for many business owners. But which solutions would you put to the treasurer? This is probably the time to speak up. I’d love to hear your ideas. * Mark Bouris is the Executive Chairman of Yellow Brick Road, a financial services company offering home loans, financial planning, accounting & tax and insurance.

Taxe télécoms : la Commission européenne ouvre une procédure d’infraction contre la FranceFrance – Afin de compenser le manque à gagner de France Télévisions suite à la suppression des écrans publicitaires après 20h, le gouvernement a instauré plusieurs taxes. Parmi elles, celle qui ponctionne de 0,9% les recettes des opérateurs télécoms, vient d’être retoquée par la Commission européenne.Bruxelles a décidé d’ouvrir une procédure officielle d’infraction contre la France, estimant que la taxe imposée depuis mars 2009 aux opérateurs est illégale. “Non seulement cette nouvelle taxation des opérateurs ne semble pas compatible avec les règles européennes, mais elle vient frapper un secteur qui est aujourd’hui l’un des principaux moteurs de la croissance économique” a précisé la commissaire en charge de la société de l’information et des médias, Viviane Reding. Et d’ajouter que cette taxe a de forts risques de se répercuter sur la facture des consommateurs.Cette taxe télécoms ponctionne quelque 300 millions d’euros par an et la décision de la Commission européenne est bien sûr une excellente nouvelle pour les opérateurs, lesquels s’insurgent depuis des mois contre son instauration. “Alors que les opérateurs sont très attentifs à leurs dépenses en raison de la crise, cette taxe freine le déploiement du haut débit et pénalise, au-delà des opérateurs, toute l’industrie d’équipement”, souligne Yves le Mouël, directeur général de la fédération française des télécoms.Le gouvernement français dispose désormais de deux mois pour apporter les preuves de la légalité de cette taxe. S’il n’y parvenait pas, la commission européenne pourrait porter l’affaire devant la cour de justice européenne. L’État pourrait alors être contraint de rembourser aux opérateurs les sommes versées depuis le mois de mars dernier.Le 29 janvier 2010 à 16:42 • Emmanuel Perrin

MyShot, National Geographic’s popular social hub that allows users to submit and vote on photos, and YourShot, the related submission site—have been two of the magazine industry’s few unmitigated successes on the Web.Now, the magazine is offering readers an opportunity to customize the cover of a special print issue—National Geographic’s Your Shot—that will feature “101 of the best readers’ photographs submitted to National Geographic magazine over the past three years.”Wired, you might recall, was one of (if not the) first national magazine to allow readers to customize a cover. The July 2007 project—funded by Xerox—netted Wired great press, but pulling together the issue, as one former staffer told me, was a “logistical nightmare.”National Geographic, though, might be looking for some incremental revenue, too. Via the press release:Looking for a unique Father’s Day gift? One that fulfills the fantasy of having a favorite photograph featured on the cover of National Geographic magazine? This month, National Geographic is publishing a special collector’s edition, National Geographic Your Shot, featuring 101 of the best readers’ photographs submitted to National Geographic magazine over the past three years. Starting Monday, June 15, readers can create and order a unique, customized cover of this special issue, using a photograph of their choice, by going to ngm.com/your-shot-special. The customized version makes a perfect gift to memorialize a special family snapshot.The custom cover option for National Geographic Your Shot will be available to order, online only, for $19.99 plus shipping. The issue goes on newsstands with a standard cover on Tuesday, June 30, for $10.99.The 144-page issue, with a trim size of 7″x7″, also will also contain advertising—from HP, Fuji and Energizer, among others.

Kolkata: Jadavpur University on Wednesday formed a two-member committee that will conduct an inquiry to find out whether there were any procedural or other lapses in the evaluation of answer scripts of all the six Humanities subjects for which the varsity had conducted admission tests.”We had the meeting of the Executive Committee (EC) today (Wednesday) where we have unanimously decided on the probe. A retired Justice and an external academician will be part of the committee. If they want, they can also rope in other members to assist them in the process. They will submit a report after the probe,” Pro Vice-Chancellor, JU Pradip Ghosh said. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeEC sources said former Vice-Chancellor of Calcutta University Ashutosh Ghosh will be a member of the committee.

1. Eagles at Redskins (+2.5) – Washington has been playing out of their minds against the NFC East this year, and they’re on a 3-game winning streak overall. KIrk Cousins has a 100.7 passer rating during the streak, and the defense has 7 takeaways during the stretch. Sorry Carson Wentz, no soup for you. Take Washington and the points, 27-23.2. Colts at Texans (-3.5) – Colin hates coughing up points, but he loves the Texans giving 3.5 at home against the Colts and their Junior Varsity defense. They just gave up 400 yards (397) and 2 touchdowns to career backup Brian freakin’ Hoyer. The Colts D has allowed a criminally indictable 70 passing plays of 10+ yards this year, and Houston rookie Will Fuller has 12 Receptions of 10+ Yards. Houston’s offense is limited with Osweiler, but not at home, and not against an inferior Indianapolis roster. Texans covers the 3.5 and then some, 36-26.3. Steelers at Dolphins (+7.5) – What the hell is Colin thinking (smoking) taking the Dolphins against the 4-1 Steelers? He’s thinking that the Dolphins have a real defense. They’re 6th best in the NFL in 3rd Down Defense (33.3% conversion rate), and have forced the 2nd most negative plays in the AFC (39). The Steelers D is filled with holes and is allowing the 6th most yards per play (5.94) in the league. Also, it’s desperation time for the Dolphins. Pittsburgh wins, but the Dolphins cover at home. 27-26, Steelers.4. Chiefs (+1) at Raiders – Kansas City is getting a point with Andy Reid coming off a bye, where he’s 15-2 in his career. That means bye bye for the Silver and Black. The Oakland defense is giving up an offensive 7 yards a play, and has allowed 16 offensive touchdowns (only the Browns and the Chargers have allowed more). Colin always loves teams that1.) Get embarrassed on national TV – the Chiefs got drilled 43-14 by the Steelers in their last game on Sunday night, and;2.) Teams that have extra time for preparation.The Chiefs are both. Take Kansas City, the point and the outright win in the Black Hole, 30-24.5. Cowboys at Packers (-4) – Colin has been tough on Aaron Rodgers, but A-Rodg has 49 touchdowns and 6 picks in his last 3 years at home at Lambeau. The Pack has the best rushing defense in the NFL, only allowing 42 yards per game, which matches up well against run-heavy Dallas and NFL leader Ezekiel Elliott. Colin likes Green Bay to cover the 4 at home, 27-20.That’s an NFL Week 6 Blazin’ 5 that’s hotter than an exploding Samsung Galaxy 7!Also, make sure you download, listen and subscribe to Colin’s Blazin’ 5 Prediction Podcast with RJ Bell every Saturday morning through the end of the football season.
