The positive effects of optimism Julia Boehm, a former research fellow at Harvard Chan School and current associate professor in the Cream College of Health and Behavioral Sciences at Chapman University, agrees that staying upbeat these days can be a challenge. “It’s something I’m working hard on in my own life. The thing to do is to hold onto what we can in these unusual circumstances. We might be losing something in terms of larger social relationships but there are ways of cultivating that, like having game nights over Zoom and really holding onto the people in your bubble. We can still practice kindness toward others in this time, which is something that’s shown to produce feelings of happiness. And you can always say, ‘The sun still rises every day, and the sunset still looks beautiful.’”Optimism may not come easy, but evidence is growing that it makes a measurable difference. “What we have done is to understand that optimism is in some way protective for health,” Kubzansky said. “Higher levels of optimism been shown to be associated with lower risk of developing diabetes, coronary heart disease, and poor lung function. And it can contribute to greater likelihood of achieving exceptional longevity — as well as healthier aging. This is important, because living longer but sicker is not something anyone aspires to. We have documentation of these associations, and we’re looking more closely into the mechanism.” More risk of physical, psychological damage, less access to health care unevenly tip scales Lower risk of depression with elevated exercise Mindfulness meditation and relaxation response affect brain differently Beyond its intrinsic value (that is, being optimistic is a positive facet of mental health in its own right), optimistic people tend to make healthier decisions. “They tend to be more goal-orientated, willing to delay gratification: ‘It may be more fun to sit on the couch and eat bonbons, but I also have this goal of being fit, so I’m going to the gym’ and optimism can help keep people focused on their larger goals. Data suggest this is the case. Optimism is linked with better health behaviors, a better diet, less likelihood to smoke. So behavior is one pathway, but we are also looking at potential biological pathways that might link optimism to better health including cellular markers. Some initial findings suggest some biological pathways are plausible. For example, people who are optimistic have healthier lipid profiles, and less risk of developing hypertension.”Boehm adds that studies have indicated that a positive attitude reduces the risk of heart disease by anywhere from 10 to 40 percent. “Let’s be honest, optimism is not going to stop you from getting cancer if you have a history in your family and aren’t taking care of yourself. Where it comes into play is there are often factors that encourage us to take actions that help our health. And people who are optimistic tend to engage in healthier behavior than people who are not.”A devil’s advocate could certainly argue that there are a lot of old cranks out there. The caustic Dorothy Parker outlived most of her Algonquin Round Table colleagues, and Bob Dylan just released one of his darkest albums at age 79. “There are always going to be people who appear to be the outliers,” says Boehm. “But maybe that cranky person is the one walking around with some resolve for the future.” 35 minutes a day of physical activity may protect against new episodes, even in the genetically vulnerable Related Positive thinking linked to reduced risk of cardiovascular events COVID’s triple whammy for Black students Study finds a host of health benefits accompany an optimistic attitude Study found that each program showed unique patterns of brain activity Protecting the heart with optimism Bad day, or week? Or maybe it’s the endless eon that 2020 and the first month of 2021 have felt like?A Harvard expert has some advice, and it doesn’t involve diving ever deeper into coverage of the pandemic or politics.“Try to have some perspective,” says Laura Kubzansky, Lee Kum Kee professor of social and behavioral sciences at Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health (HSPH). “If you look at the history of world events, things are always changing. So it helps to avoid saying things like, ‘This will never change, we’ll be in this situation forever.’ And it helps to recognize where the silver linings are — which I’d say the news media is especially bad about doing.”If you can’t conjure up some optimism, she says, try focusing on the hopeful things in your life. “Sometimes it’s just about realizing there’s a certain amount of randomness in the world and you need to roll with it. Maybe now that the world is disrupted, you can find out things about your kids that you wouldn’t have learned otherwise. Maybe you can notice that it’s a beautiful foliage season, and spend time outside. And maybe you can think that we’ve just been too driven, we all need to slow down.“Finding perspective isn’t just about optimism — it’s also about the things that travel with it, in terms of feeling a sense of meaning and purpose. And that goes with the understanding that you’re not going to feel good all the time — that’s OK. It’s a hard time and nobody’s saying ‘Look on the bright side every minute.’” “Higher levels of optimism been shown to be associated with lower risk of developing diabetes, coronary heart disease, and poor lung function.” — Laura Kubzansky, Harvard Chan School The Daily Gazette Sign up for daily emails to get the latest Harvard news.
Associate professor emeritus of finance Adam S. Arnold Jr., the first African American faculty member at Notre Dame, died April 14 at the age of 94, the University announced in a press release Monday.According to the press release, Arnold joined the department of finance in 1957 after serving in World War II and spent 30 years as a University faculty member. As well as being the first African American faculty member, he was also the first to receive tenure.Arnold spent much of his youth in Danville, Kentucky, according to the press release. He met his wife, Helen, while attending West Virginia State College. He was drafted into the U.S. Army after graduation and left it at the rank of staff sergeant. Afterwards, he earned his MBA as well as a doctorate in finance at the University of Wisconsin.In a statement in the press release, University President Fr. John Jenkins said Arnold was a groundbreaking faculty member.“After serving in the Army in World War II, Dr. Arnold came to Notre Dame in 1957 and served on our finance faculty for the next 30 years,” Jenkins said in the press release. “He was a pioneer who served Our Lady’s University with distinction. Our prayers and best wishes are with his family.”Arnold received the William P. Sexton Award — which is “given to non-alumni faculty or staff whose lives exemplify the spirit of the University,” according to the press release — in 2003, the press release said.A memorial funeral service will be held for Arnold at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Hampton, Virginia, at 11 a.m. on May 5.Tags: professor emeritus dies
Customers interested in signing up for Greener Mountain Power can go to www.greenmountainpower.biz(link is external) or callGreen Mountain Power at 1-888-TEL-GMPC (1-888-835-4672.)Greener Mountain Power is a five-year commitment,by calendar year. Customers may withdraw at any time, but cannot sign up againuntil the end of the original five-year period. GREENMOUNTAIN POWER INTRODUCES NEW RENEWABLERATE David OBrien, commissioner of the Vermont Department of Public Service, said,We are very pleased that Green Mountain Power is implementing a green rate.This is an ideal way to offer consumers a choice of what energy sources theywish to support. Green Mountain Power Corporation (www.greenmountainpower.biz(link is external)) is aVermont-based energy services company serving 90,000 electriccustomers. Green Mountain Power will purchase certified renewable resources on theNew England power grid equal to the portion ofelectricity customers designate to purchase through Greener Mountain Power. Theprice of those resources will be locked in for five years, which will helpstabilize the Greener Mountain Power rate. When Vermont projects are available, they willreceive a priority. Likely candidates for inclusion would include wind, biomassand biogas. Green Mountain Power worked closely with the Vermont Department of PublicService and Renewable Energy Vermont in developing the program. The program is available to residential, commercial and industrial customers.Residential and small commercial customers can choose to have 25 percent, 50percent or 100 percent of their power come from renewable resources. Largeindustrial customers may choose a ten percent level, but greater amounts requirepermission from the Company. Our customers have expressed interest in being able to choose renewableresources and Im pleased that we will now be able to offer them that choice.Green Mountain Powers overall power mix is already low in fossil fuels, butunder our new program, customers can choose 100 percent renewable resources,said Chris Dutton, President and Chief Executive Officer of Green MountainPower. Weve called the program Greener Mountain Power to reflect thatgreener choice. -30- Customers pay a premium for the renewable resources of just over four cents perkilowatthour. For residential customers using 750 kilowatthours a month, signingup for 25 percent of their use under Greener Mountain Power would add $7.88 totheir $97.55 monthly bill, for a total of $105.43. March 14, 2006 Due to the laws of physics, actual electrons flow to the nearest need and cannotbe directed to specific locations. Through Greener Mountain Power, customerswill be financially supporting qualifying new renewable energy sources connectedto the New England electric grid but that powerwill not necessarily flow to their home. Andrew Perchlik, executive director of Renewable Energy Vermont, said, We werepleased to work with Green Mountain Power to develop this new renewable rate. Wethink it is important that Green Mountain Power customers now have the option ofa green rate to support renewable energy in Vermont and NewEngland. COLCHESTER, VT . . . Green Mountain Power Corporation(NYSE:GMP) announced today that its customers now have the choice of buying allor a portion of their power from renewable resources. The Vermont Public ServiceBoard has given its final approval to the program, effectiveimmediately.

Controversial Keystone XL pipeline project still faces serious economic questions FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Omaha World-Herald:The Keystone XL pipeline has faced bureaucratic hurdles, court challenges and the determined opposition of environmental groups. But the biggest challenge to the project at this point could come from basic economics.Weak oil demand and cheap alternative sources mean pipeline developer TC Energy should consider putting construction plans on pause — perhaps forever, said Charles Mason, chair in petroleum and natural gas economics at the University of Wyoming. “I don’t know if it’s dead,” Mason said of the pipeline. “It’s absolutely on life support.”The Keystone XL would transport up to 830,000 barrels a day from the oil sands of western Canada to a terminal in Steele City, Nebraska. It would ultimately supply oil refineries on the Gulf Coast.TC Energy has pushed back on skeptics who suggest that the pipeline is obsolete. While it has yet to make a “final investment decision,” the company says it is planning for construction to start this year.Major pipelines require a huge upfront investment that is based on a future stream of supply and the revenue that comes with it. Those contemplating new oil sands projects face similar arithmetic. Spending more than $60 to extract a barrel of oil that’s worth less than $50 is a tough way to make money, after all. The uncertain future of oil sands development was illustrated when Teck Resources recently announced that it is abandoning a major project.“The Canadian oil sands aren’t the only game in town, and I think their time has sort of come and gone,” Mason said. “It’s a remote deposit that’s hard to get to market in a world in which there are increasingly more attractive and more accessible sources of supply. The economics just don’t really stack up for the oil sands right now.”[Joseph Morton]More: Will simple economics deal fatal blow to long-delayed Keystone XL pipeline?
In 2011, illegal armed groups made up of former paramilitaries had a presence in 406 municipalities within 31 Colombian departments, that is, 147 more than in 2008, according to a report by a non-governmental organization. According to the Institute of Development and Peace Studies (Indepaz), “The Rastrojos [Stubble], Urabeños, Paisas, Águilas Negras [Black Eagles], and Erpac are the narco-paramilitary groups that have succeeded in consolidating their position throughout Colombia’s national territory, of which the first two have the greatest impact.” In statements to AFP, Indepaz director Camilo González said that “the analysis allows us to demonstrate that these groups have continued reproducing since 2006,” when the so-called United Self-Defense Units of Colombia (extreme right-wing paramilitaries AUC) were demobilized. González even noted that “in the last four years, there’s been a permanent presence of these groups, under different names, in 271 municipalities (out of the 1,100 that exist in Colombia).” “They inherited the [drug-trafficking] business and the areas of influence and mobility of the groups demobilized in 2006. There was a mutation, and that allows us to talk about partial and even false demobilizations. There was fraud in turning over lists [of demobilized individuals] and weapons,” he explained. The Indepaz report also notes the presence of leftist guerrilla groups and indicates that the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) are active in 249 municipalities; the National Liberation Army (ELN) in 65; and the Popular Liberation Army (EPL) in seven. The report highlights the fact that “within the logic of the conflict, the FARC and ELN, the two most important insurgent groups in the country, have occasionally joined forces to confront the narco-paramilitary groups, reclaiming rural areas in the Colombian south and southwest.” Nevertheless, it adds that there are areas in the eastern part of the country, where “the existence of alliances with groups such as Erpac, in order to divide up the drug-trafficking business, is clear.” González specified that even if the FARC has fallen back territorially over the last eight years, toward the country’s south and east, that rebel group (with around 9,000 armed men) has intensified its presence in urban sectors between 2010 and 2011, by way of militias.

By Dialogo November 08, 2012 Italy and Colombia will sign a cooperation agreement to facilitate the seizure of mafia assets, as well as profits obtained from drug trafficking by criminal organizations, Italian Chief of Police Antonio Manganelli announced on November 6. The statement was made during the annual INTERPOL General Assembly held in Rome. “We have to recover by force what was stolen from us,” said the Italian Police Chief, known for the excellent results in the fight against the Cosa Nostra Sicilian mafia. Later on, Manganelli held a bilateral meeting with the Colombian delegation headed by General José Roberto León Riaño, chief of the Colombian Police, to which the Italian official confirmed the “synergy” between both police forces. Both countries aim at signing a collaboration agreement to take advantage of the experience gained during the fight against the mafia. Every year, Italy confiscates thousands of millions of euros in assets from mafia organizations, such as mansions, luxury automobiles, yachts, art collections, businesses, warehouses, and houses. After a lengthy process, Italian Law allows the confiscated assets to be transferred to the State, which has the faculty of deciding over them, as in the case of land, which can be given away to nongovernmental and cooperative organizations for commercial use. The INTERPOL General Assembly brought together about 100 Justice, Interior, and Security ministers from all around the world to the Italian capital to discuss the criminal violence that has been manifested in all kinds of crimes, from human trafficking to terrorism. The four-day meeting (November 5 – 8) opened under the theme “Challenges for Police Facing Contemporary Criminal Violence,” and served as a discussion forum for over 1,000 delegates from about 170 countries to determine realistic strategies to effectively prevent, suppress, and confront the changing nature of violence and crime in the contemporary world. According to INTERPOL’s Secretary General Ronald K. Noble, about 500,000 people are murdered each year in violent situations.
The Argentine National Gendarmerie (GNA) has arrested an alleged high-level leader of the powerful Italian ‘Ndrangheta mafia, which has extensive connections in Latin America. Pantaleone Mancuso, 52 – known as “The Engineer” – was arrested August 29 in the Argentine border city of Puerto Iguazu as he attempted to cross into the Brazilian city of Foz do Iguacu aboard a tourist bus. At the crossing, officers of the Argentine National Directorate of Migration (DNM) noted irregularities in Mancuso’s papers, which identified him as an Argentine named Luca Bortola. Upon searching him, GNA officers found (US) $130,000 in cash. A fingerprint check confirmed his true identity as Pantaleone Mancuso, who was the target of an international arrest warrant. An Argentine judge ordered Mancuso held until Italian officials commence extradition proceedings. He had been on the run for more than a year after Italian prosecutors charged him with organized crime activities, as well as the 2008 attempted murders of his aunt and cousin in a bloody family dispute. It’s unclear how long Mancuso had been in Argentina, or whether he was simply hiding out in that country or trying to establish new organized crime connections. Mancuso is allegedly a top capo in the powerful Mancuso clan of the ‘Ndrangheta, which is based in the Calabria region of southern Italy. The ‘Ndrangheta is considered one of the world’s most powerful criminal organizations, controlling an estimated 80 percent of all the cocaine entering Europe, according to a 2013 report by Fox News Latino. Its revenues from drug trafficking, money laundering, extortion and other crimes are estimated at up to $50 billion per year. And it has reportedly established ties with the Mexican drug cartel Los Zetas, as well as the United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia (AUC) paramilitary group and other Colombian drug trafficking cartels. The arrest highlights the continued presence in Latin America of the ‘Ndrangheta – and it’s only the latest in a number of recent captures of the organization’s capos in Latin America. In June, 2014 Colombian security forces detained Domenico Trimboli, who is also known as “Pasquale,” on drug trafficking charges. Police said Trimboli is a high-level member of the ‘Ndrangheta mafia who maintained ties with both Colombian and Spanish drug traffickers and organized the trafficking of drugs to Italy and other parts of Western Europe. That same month, police in Lima, Perú arrested Pasquale Bifulco, also known as “Spaghetti,” an Italian national accused of being a major cocaine trafficker for the ‘Ndrangheta. He allegedly conspired to move large amounts of cocaine from Perú and Brazil to Europe via cargo ships. And in April, 2014 police in the Dominican Republic arrested Nicola Pignatelli, head of the Mazzaferro Ursino Aquino branch of the ‘Ndrangheta, in the resort town of Juan Dolio, about 30 kilometers east of capital Santo Domingo. Dominican officials said Pignatelli, a fugitive who had been sentenced in Italy in 2011 to 13 years in prison for drug trafficking, was in the Dominican Republic to open a new route for trafficking of cocaine from Central and South America to Europe.

“We cannot become what we want by remaining what we are”- Max DepreeAre You the CEO of an Organization Seeking Transformation? If yes, you must encourage data-driven dialogues and nurture dialogue-driven leaders on your teams.Organizations looking to transform themselves to address data-driven and technology-driven change need, more than ever, CEOs who are willing and able to adopt new ways of planning, acting, communicating and learning, with the goal of becoming both servant leaders and chief learning officers.CEOs Must “Learn and Serve” if They Wish to LeadCEOs must work to make their organizations’ strategic processes participatory, inviting employees’ input into the planning process to surface ideas and concerns, and to spot emerging threats and opportunities. CEO’s must lead the building of teams composed of both learners and leaders who can adapt to externalities and adopt internal processes that promote agility.In the late 1980s Max DePree, Chairman and CEO of Herman Miller, wrote about the art of leadership and of the leader’s role as servant to those one wished to lead. Today, more than ever, Max DePree’s ideas hold sway because information and change come at us faster than ever and no one person can effectively cope. Thus, CEOs must adopt a new role as Chief Learning Officer and chief mentor if they are to succeed at understanding the relevance and value of the changes happening around them. And from this position, they must encourage the same behavior in their teams. They have to show everyone the path to learning and adapting – the agile path. Only then can they serve, lead and succeed.Traditional Approaches to Planning Won’t WorkTraditional strategic and competitive planning (the purview of the CEO) focused on and put effort toward the puzzle pieces of organizations – company strengths, weaknesses and culture; customers; competitors; collaborators; and the context in which they all interacted. Various consultants and management educators often advocated for one “C” category over another to differentiate their thinking or offering, or to show agility in the face of changing times. That agility has never been more necessary than it is today because data- and technology-driven disruption has created an evolving environment that demands agile, vigilant responses.Organizations faced with industry disruption must address first and foremost the wants and needs of their customers and, more than ever, their employees. They must address each of the above “C” categories, but with an emphasis on solving for the needs of their customers. And CEOs must add to their processes efforts to engage fully the people within their organizations. To do this, CEOs must transform how they lead their organizations to think and act.In the face of digital and data disruption, CEOs can no longer focus solely on internal efficiencies and cost savings to promote profitability. Nor can they focus chiefly on branding or pricing to overcome their acknowledged competitors. Instead, today’s organizations must compete within themselves to meet the needs of current and targeted customers; and they must work to “do it right” and not simply to “do it better.” This means internal teams, departments and other groups must compete with each other and cooperate with each other to transform the customers’ experiences by empowering employees to think and act in ways that, ultimately, transform the organization itself. And to do this, those teams need leadership from the top that promotes thinking critically, communicating transparently, and acting with agility.CEOs Need to Reinvent Planning and Decision-MakingThe changing role of the CEO includes promoting change to the organization’s planning processes. Gone are annual planning cycles and 3-5 year roadmaps. Organizations focused on traditional thinking and acting will not spot the opportunities available to them, nor the threats confronting them. Today’s CEO must insist on continual strategy review, and put in place mechanisms, and digital tools, to gather “outside-in, real-time” intelligence from customers, competitors and employees. CEOs must insist of themselves and others, that experience, not received opinion, will inform decision-making.CEOs Need to Communicate Strategies Holistically to Transform BusinessFor today’s CEOs, the challenge isn’t just to learn about digital disruption and technological change. The challenge is to act upon it without isolating it, without making it a “parallel path for planning and investing.” They can’t think of digital strategy as something separate from the rest of their strategies and tactics, even if they give it more import. Rather, they must find a way not to mention “digital.” Instead, they must lead their organizations to think and act holistically when describing market forces, evaluating capabilities and seeking new ways of working. When confronting digital disruption, CEOs must not focus their organizations on a narrow response to digital technology and disruption. They must, instead, incorporate new ideas and technologies into their efforts to transform organizational structure, business practices, culture and leadership, with the goal of creating an adaptive, learning organization.CEOs Must Harness People if They Wish to Harness Digital TechnologiesTo help their organizations adapt, today’s CEOs must challenge their employees and themselves to understand customers’ needs and the power of technology to amplify customers’ influence on each other. Technology provides valuable communication channels for both customers and employees, and CEOs must learn to use these channels to gain insights on what works, and what doesn’t.CEOs, as chief learners, need to work to fill their organization with leaders of teams that learn to problem solve based on information and interaction gained collectively. It requires rewarding thoughtfulness and creativity; but it starts with hiring people different from those you sought before. Look for creative types, and for people with experiences different from those already represented in your organization. If you hire the right people, they will seek ownership of problems and solutions. Let them have that ownership and let them create the teams needed to enact those solutions, learn from them, and grow with them.

“Some US and Western elites are indeed behind the times in their way of thinking — they think of China as an ‘expansionist empire’ and see all China’s expanded cooperation with whichever country or region as part of its ‘expansion strategy.’ In fact, they have really misread China, the times as well as the world,” it added. China’s Premier Li Keqiang (center) looks on as Chinese Minister of Commerce Zhong Shan (right) signs the massive trade agreement, as seen on a TV monitor, during the ceremony for the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) trade pact at the ASEAN summit that was held online on Nov. 15, 2020.Nhac Nguyen | AFP | Getty Images Ideas such as so-called “decoupling” with China are nonsense, and the RCEP illustrates that nations who pursue such are likely to end up on the outside of the world’s economic gravity. The signing of the world’s largest trade deal proves that China is not the “expansionist empire” that the U.S. and some Western countries have made it out to be, said Chinese state-backed tabloid Global Times.Instead, the mega pact — the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership or RCEP — showed that China can work with other countries “in an effective and mutually beneficial way,” the tabloid said on Sunday.“This is the fundamental way for China’s development. China has been seeking a win-win and all-win mode from the very beginning and, like rolling snowballs, has accumulated a large number of common interests around the world,” said the Global Times in an opinion piece posted on its website.- Advertisement – Similarly, CGTN — the international arm of state-controlled broadcaster CCTV — said China defied the portrayal of “Western media” by showing that Beijing’s approach to the region is not “aggression,” but “well contemplated diplomacy.”Chinese state media often act as a mouthpiece for the Chinese government.“In addition, what the West should understand is that China is integral and core to the regional and global economy, and that this trade pact is an affirmation of that,” CGTN said in an opinion piece published Sunday on its website.“Ideas such as so-called ‘decoupling’ with China are nonsense, and the RCEP illustrates that nations who pursue such are likely to end up on the outside of the world’s economic gravity,” it added, making a reference to the U.S. and Chinese economies splitting due to their trade and tech conflict. RCEP, which covers nearly one-third of the global economy and the world’s population, was signed by China and 14 Asia-Pacific countries on Sunday. The other 14 participating economies are the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand.- Advertisement – CGTN highlighted other trade agreements that Beijing has negotiated since U.S. President Donald Trump took office in January 2017. Under Trump, the U.S. slapped punitive tariffs on several of its major trading partners, including China, Canada and the European Union.In contrast to the U.S., China clinched new agreements with Cambodia as well as the Eurasian Economic Union comprising Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan, said the broadcaster. China also upgraded existing trade deals with New Zealand and Singapore, it said in defense of Beijing.Those deals would “diminish American attempts to decouple China from the global economy,” it said.“China has in effect responded to the American challenge, not through confrontation as the media sensationalize it to be, but through deepening its integration with others and staking out its trade future,” said CGTN.“The RCEP includes multiple U.S. allies; their agreement to the deal is an affirmation that China will remain an intrinsic economic partner for them and that the region will ultimately work and cooperate together,” the state-owned broadcaster said. – Advertisement – – Advertisement –
“Hopefully, the regulation will transform personal mobility devices into first and last-mile feeders for other public transportation systems,” he said.While e-scooters have grown in popularity – partially as a result of an e-scooter rental application by ride-hailing firm Grab Indonesia called GrabWheels – safety regulations remain an issue. In late 2019, the Jakarta administration banned the use of GrabWheels electric scooters on the street following the deaths of two users in a traffic accident.The use of the e-scooter service was restricted to specific areas, such as the Gelora Bung Karno (GBK) sports complex.Grab Indonesia president director Ridzki Kramadibrata told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday that GrabWheels had deployed 10,000 e-scooters in Jakarta and had recorded more than 1 million users.“The response of users to the GrabWheels service has been very encouraging. We have served more than 1 million users, reduced carbon emissions by 200,000 tons and own the largest EV [electric vehicle] fleet in Indonesia,” Ridzki said in a written statement.A recent survey conducted by the Bandung Institute of Technology’s (ITB) School of Business Management shows the growing popularity of e-scooters.The survey, which was released on July 29, found that while only 8 percent of respondents had used e-scooter rental services, 35 percent of respondents said they would be willing to ride e-scooters in the future.Ridzki said GrabWheels was expanding its service in Greater Jakarta; Bandung, West Java; and Surabaya, East Java, among other cities.Regarding the Transportation Ministry regulation, he said the company had updated its safety features to comply with the regulation, including by installing transmitters in scooters to prevent users from riding them into restricted areas.“To align with the Transportation Ministry’s regulation, we have updated our safety features for our users,” he said in the statement.Read also: Back on the road: E-scooter service GrabWheels returns to Jakarta streetsTopics : Under the regulation, drivers of personal electric vehicles must be at least 12 years of age, and an adult must accompany drivers between 12 and 15 years old. The regulation also limits e-scooters’ speed to 6 kilometers per hour (km/h).“While we have issued a ministerial regulation on e-scooters, it only works as a guideline and provides basic requirements. Therefore, we need regulations on the local level that include sanction clauses enforceable by the Public Order Agency [Satpol PP],” Budi said during an online press conference.The regulation states that e-scooters should be used in bicycle lanes, in designated road lanes or on the sidewalk if such lanes are not unavailable.Budi said he hoped the regulation would protect users of e-scooters and support e-scooter rental services, which have seen significant growth over the past years. The Transportation Ministry has urged city and provincial administrations to regulate the use of electric scooters (e-scooters) and similar vehicles as their popularity grows.The local regulations should include sanctions for violations of e-scooter policies, said Budi Setiyadi, the ministry’s land transportation director general, on Monday.The ministry issued Transportation Ministerial Regulation No. 45/2020 on electric vehicles in June to regulate the specifications and usage of e-scooters.

DEFENDING champion Angelique Kerber survived an onslaught from fellow German Carina Witthoeft to advance yesterday to the Australian Open third round.Kerber – top seed at a Grand Slam for the first time – struggled with her serve in a second-set tie-break before prevailing 6-2, 6-7(3-7), 6-2.The top seed, who was 29 yesterday, faces Czech Kristyna Pliskova next.Venus Williams beat Swiss qualifier Stefanie Voegele 6-3, 6-2 to reach the third round for the 13th timeWilliams, who played at her first Australian Open in 1998, is the oldest woman in the singles draw, is still going strong at 36 and is competing in her 73rd Grand Slam.“I have to talk about my age every interview!” the American said. “I’ve played some of the greats.“It’s an honour and privilege to start that young, and play this old.”She later pulled out of the doubles competition with her sister Serena as a precaution to rest a sore elbow.The 17th seed has never won the title in Melbourne, her best result finishing as runner-up to Serena in 2003.She will next play Duan Yingying after the Chinese player beat Varvara Lepchenko 6-1, 3-6, 10-8.World number one Kerber has started the year in less-than-convincing style, going out in the last eight in Brisbane and the second round in Sydney.And Witthoeft, 21, posed a far more serious challenge in this meeting than in the 6-0, 6-0 defeat she suffered against her compatriot at Wimbledon in 2015.After a frustrated Kerber coughed up successive double faults in the tie-break, Witthoeft’s powerful groundstrokes took the opening game of the decider against serve.But Kerber won the next four to regain control and avoid an upset.“To have this pressure is a privilege,” she said. “It’s completely new for me, but I’m doing well. I’m just trying to enjoy it.”BEST OF THE RESTWorld number seven Garbine Muguruza advanced to the third round by beating America’s Samantha Crawford 7-5, 6-4.Meanwhile, Russia’s Svetlana Kuznetsova, a three-time quarter-finalist in Melbourne, was a 6-2, 6-1 victor over Australia’s Jaimee Fourlis.But 10th seed Carla Suarez Navarro is out after a shock defeat by Romania’s world number 78 Sorana Cirstea.The Spaniard went down 7-6(7-1), 6-3.Canadian Eugenie Bouchard avoided a second successive Australian Open second-round exit by beating China’s Peng Shuai.Bouchard, a Melbourne semi-finalist in 2014 who is now ranked 47 in the world, won 7-6(7-5), 6-2.Australia’s Ashleigh Barty, in her first Australian Open appearance since 2014, moved to the third round for the first time with a 7-5, 6-1 win over American Shelby Rogers.

That’s according to a presentation from the commissioner’s office to the union that was obtained by The Associated Press.The 12-page document was dated May 12 and paints a grim picture of a $10 billion industry shuttered by the pandemic. It was an initial step in negotiations aimed at starting the delayed season around the Fourth of July.Some players have publicly balked at the notion of less pay, and the union has called for more transparency in baseball’s financial records.Teams say the proposed method of salvaging a season delayed by the coronavirus pandemic would still cause a $4 billion loss and would give major league players 89% of revenue. The Yankees would have the highest loss at $312 million.Teams contend they lose more money with each additional game played. The players’ union, however, believes clubs would lose less money with more games.

Ricarda Kiessling’s last-second strike denied China are second straight win in Group D to secure a 1-1 draw for Germany at Bayil Stadium.Germany, who have won six of their seven opening-round games at FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cups, could have assured themselves of a place in the Azerbaijan 2012 quarter-finals had they continue that form.Predictably, the Germans came out strong against the Chinese. Vivien Bell tried a shot from distance in the early minutes, but Chinese goalkeeper Lu Feifei was equal to the task.After seven minutes, Zhang Chen created the first dangerous moment for the German defence with a mazy run into the box, but her efforts were eventually halted by the lunging Lena Luckel. The Chinese only had to wait until the 12th minute to get the game’s opening goal. Miao Siwen picked up a fine pass from Li Mengwen before hammering a powerful shot from 20 yards into the top corner.The half finished with a high tempo which bled straight into the second period, with China making the more impressive headway. Germany on the other hand struggled to make an impact against a well-organised defence.The introduction of striker Venus El-Kassem with 15 minutes to go improved their efforts, forcing Feifei into a save, but was taken off soon after through injury. This saw replacement Kiessling step up to the plate and nod home a free-kick with 94 minutes on the clock to save a point. The quote“We are very happy with this result. In the second half we put a lot of effort towards finding an equaliser and finally were rewarded at the end of the game. China, as we expected, were a strong opponent and they played very well.” Anouschka Bernhard, Germany coach
Tottenham have completed the signing of Belgian winger Nacer Chadli from FC Twente.The 23-year-old has agreed personal terms with Andre Villas-Boas’ side and passed a medical, after a transfer fee was confirmed on Sunday.Chadli scored twice in Twente’s win over Tottenham in the UEFA Champions League two seasons ago and will join the club’s pre-season trip to Monaco on Saturday.A statement on the club’s website read: “We are delighted to confirm the signing of Nacer Chadli from FC Twente after the player agreed personal terms and successfully completed his medical.“The Belgium international is expected to be available for the first time when we travel to Monaco for our pre-season fixture on Saturday, August 3.”Chadli, who was also a reported target for Swansea and Fulham, was an important part of Twente’s side last season, making 26 Eredivisie appearances and scoring 12 goals as Michel Jansen’s side finished sixth. The Enschede club missed out on a spot in the UEFA Europa League, however, after a losing a play-off to Utrecht.
Clippers coach Doc Rivers has noticed.“When you came into this year, you thought the West would be the conference with all the teams over .500,” he said. “I don’t even think there are six; I think there are six teams in the West that may be over .500 and then what, 12 or 10 in the East?“What it says is both leagues are good this year and the West needs to pick it up.”Redick brings the juicePoint guard Paul had played in 15 of the 19 games before Saturday, and shooting guard Redick had played in 16; however, Redick only played 17 seconds of the Indiana game before going down with a sprained right ankle.Rivers was talking about Redick at practice, and he mentioned something that was thought-provoking.“The part I think people miss with J.J. is when J.J. doesn’t practice, our practices are different,” he said. “When he doesn’t play, our games are different. There are guys who bring energy to the team, and J.J.’s one of those guys. And when you don’t have him, you miss a big energy guy.”Redick was out again Saturday.Multiple injuries for CP3Paul played all 82 games in 2014-15 for the first time in his career. This season he has had a fractured finger during training camp as well as a groin strain and inflamed rib cartilage.Rivers is confident things will change.“Obviously, whenever someone gets injured early in camp and then has multiple injuries, you don’t like it,” he said. “But he’ll be good.”Paul also missed Saturday’s game.On the roadThe Clippers will begin a five-game road trip Monday in Minnesota. There will also be stops in Milwaukee, Chicago, Brooklyn and Detroit. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “A little bit, but that’s how the NBA season is sometimes,” said Griffin, when asked if he felt like the team has been on a treadmill. “Sometimes you feel like you’re working hard and doing all the right things, and it’s not happening.“So when that happens, you’ve just gotta work even harder. Eventually, we’ll get out of it. Everything evens out. It’s all a roller coaster over the season, not getting too high with the highs and not getting too low with the lows.”Tough Eastern ConferenceThe Western Conference has been so much stronger than the Eastern circuit in recent seasons. Things, at least so far, are different this season.At the outset of play Saturday, there were 10 teams from the East with better than .500 records. In the West, there were six. The L.A. Clippers will have played 20 games after Saturday night’s contest against the Orlando Magic. That’s just about a quarter of the season.For a team that was so highly touted at the outset, starting 10-9 was not what coach coach Doc Rivers and his players could have envisioned. Yes, they won three in a row and four of five before Wednesday’s loss to the Indiana Pacers, but it’s still hard to get excited about the overall record.And since starting guards Chris Paul and J.J. Redick had already missed a handful of games with injuries, it has felt more like one step forward, one step back.Blake Griffin, the team’s ultra-talented power forward, intimated at practice Friday that it’s too early to be concerned.

He’s just a great rider and continued to improve. He’s a real professional now in the middle of his career and he is doing great.“I would like to mention Eddie Logan, who this race is named after, he was the shoe shine guy for one hundred years- great guy! So Eddie, I hope you are watching upstairs.”KOSTA HRONIS, OWNER, ENCODER, WINNER: “Joel rode our first race for us back in 2010. We’re very fortunate to get him anytime we can.

SOCU’s investigation…in bridge feasibility study procurement breach probePeople’s Progressive Party (PPP) Executive member, Gail Teixeira, has expressed hope that Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan will not interfere with the investigation by the Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU) into the procurement breach regarding the hiring of a consultancy firm for the construction of a new Demerara Harbour Bridge.Teixeira said she is pleased to have received a prompt response from SOCU after she had written the Unit but said she finds it unusual that the request was also, by information, sent to the Minister. Teixeira, a former Home Affairs Minister, said usually investigations of this nature are not forwarded to a Minister but rather go through the investigative process by the Police and the Director of Public Prosecutions.“So it’s a little interesting to note in what way the Minister was involved and I hope that the Minister would not interfere with the investigations of the Public Procurement Commission [PPC]… as you know it took from September last year until August this year, which is quite a lot of time,” she stated on Monday.The parliamentarian maintained that the findings are very serious and could lead to serious charges.The PPP had written SOCU, asking that the procurement breaches in relation to the award of consultancy contract for the feasibility study and design of the new Demerara River Bridge be investigated; and SOCU has responded, informing that the issue is engaging the attention of the Guyana Police Force.Teixeira wrote to SOCU head Sydney James on August 15, requesting that the procurement breaches be investigated “with a view to instituting criminal charges against the Minister of Public Infrastructure David Patterson.”In a response dated August 16, James acknowledged receiving the correspondence, and said, “The matter is now engaging the attention of the Guyana Police Force.”Additionally, he informed that Ramjattan; acting Police Commissioner David Ramnarine; and Police Legal Advisor, retired Justice of Appeal Claudette Singh; have been informed of the request for an investigation.Teixeira had, back in September, written the Public Procurement Commission asking that that body investigate the selection and award of a $146 million contract to Dutch consulting firm LievenseCSO for the feasibility study of the new Demerara River Bridge after it was revealed, and later confirmed by Minister Patterson that the company was sole-sourced and had not even bid for the project.In the Commission’s report to the Opposition, it highlighted the breaches in the Procurement Act. In response, Minister of State Joseph Harmon said Minister Patterson would now have to justify his actions before Cabinet.According to the PPC report, seen by Guyana Times, some 23 companies had expressed an interest in providing consultancy services; 12 were shortlisted, and two managed to submit their proposals on time. However, Government failed to reach an agreement with either of the two companies in their negotiations, and as such, the tender was annulled.The National Procurement and Tender Administration Board (NPTAB) then recommended that the Public Infrastructure Ministry (MPI) re-tender, but it did not, the PPC report said. It went on to note that the Permanent Secretary of the MPI then “informed the Public Procurement Commission that subsequent to annulment of the tender by MPI, [Dutch Company LievenseCSO] Engineering contracting BV submitted an unsolicited proposal to provide consultancy services for the Demerara River Bridge project.”As such, the Commission added, Minister Patterson approached Cabinet on November 18, 2016, seeking consideration and approval to use funds from the Demerara Harbour Bridge Corporation (DHBC) to fund the feasibility study and to commence a contractual engagement with LievenseCSO as of January 1, 2017.The Commission found that there was a breach when this request to Cabinet was made by the Minister and not through the NPTAB. The PPC also noted that Cabinet considered the memorandum submitted by the Minister, and in November 2016 approved a total sum of $161,514,420 to be used from the DHBC to cover cost for the feasibility study for a new bridge across the Demerara River.According to the PPC, General Manager of the Demerara Harbour Bridge, Rawlston Adams, indicated that the DHBC Board was not a party to the decision to use these funds for this purpose as approved by Cabinet, and further stated that he had not signed the contract on behalf of the DHBC, but only because he was requested to do so by the Public Infrastructure Minister.As a result of the findings of the probe, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has called for Minister Patterson to be charged with corruption.

Belgium football expert Christophe Terreur has told talkSPORT about his country’s answer to Jamie Vardy. Gent forward Laurent Depoitre appears destined for the Premier League with reports suggesting 13 top-flight English clubs are interested in securing his signature.The 27-year-old has scored 12 goals in 32 appearances for club and country this term and a number of Premier League scouts are set to watch him in action against Wolfsburg in the Champions League on Wednesday night.Terreur told Hawksbee and Jacobs of Depoitre: “He has the profile of a Premier League player – he’s a strong lad.“Some compare him in Belgium to Christian Benteke – I see some similarities but I see some differences.“He is made for the Premier League. Only maybe six [of the clubs mentioned are scouting him].“He is the best Belgian striker [in the country’s top-flight] but I don’t think the big teams are looking to him because in the winter transfer window he was offered everywhere by his agent.“Only a few clubs showed real interest – one of them was Aston villa for instance – but he was too expensive as they were asking for £14million.“His agent said in Belgian papers this morning that even some Chinese clubs have got in touch with him but he has a dream of playing in the Premier League. He wants that dream, he is not the type of guy in it for the money.“Belgians are not known to live far away from their country so I think he will move to the Premier League. I think Gent are willing to sell him in the summer because his contract is running out in one-and-a-half years so if they want to make money now they should do it.“We compare him to Jamie Vardy because it is his third season in the highest league in Belgium – he used to play in the third and fourth division. He made his way to the lower ranks and then to the Champions League and the Belgium national team.”

Foley said police believe the suspects targeted the home for robbery after hearing exaggerated accounts of money and other valuables inside. Those accounts were “fiction,” Foley said. Foley said that, although the decision of whether to pursue capital murder charges belongs to prosecutors, “If I was a betting man, I’d say there’s a high likelihood this is going to be a death penalty case.” Mourners laid flowers and handmade memorials along the fence of the modest home where the family was found slain. The victims were identified as Emma Valdez, 46; her husband, Alberto Covarrubias, 56; their sons, Alberto Covarrubias, 11, and David Covarrubias, 8 or 9; Valdez’s daughter, Flora Albarran, 22; Albarran’s 5-year-old son, Luis; and Albarran’s brother Magno Albarran, 29. Maria Flores, whose sister was killed, stood quietly as police briefed the media about Turner’s surrender. “We are very relieved and thankful that he made the right decision,” she said. “I just hope God forgives him for what he did.” Neighbors, friends and others whose emotions were touched by the city’s worst mass murder in 25 years left flowers, ribbons, candles, dozens of stuffed animals and an angel statue along a sidewalk out front of the family’s house. Cars drove by slowly while people knelt to pray. A memorial service was scheduled to be held in front of the family’s home this evening. “God shall bring justice to them, celebrate the way they lived, not the way they left us,” read one note left atop seven red roses at family’s modest tan house. “A good family is gone, but not forgotten. Shall they all rest in peace.” Adults and children, many in tears, streamed through nearby Thomas D. Gregg Elementary, where David and Alberto had attended classes, to speak with grief counselors Saturday. “The boys were very respectful of the school, good students and well-behaved,” Principal Les Durbin told The Indianapolis Star. “They were very well-respected by their classmates, and their parents were very involved in their educations.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

INDIANAPOLIS – A man suspected of gunning down seven family members he believed kept large amounts of money in their home surrendered to police on Saturday, Deputy Chief Tim Foley said. More than 100 police officers conducted the search for Desmond Turner, including unsuccessful raids at two east-side houses, since shortly after the Thursday slayings. Turner, 28, grew up near the shooting and had returned last fall after being released from prison following a 3 -year term for drug and weapons charges. Foley said investigators put pressure on people who knew Turner to ensure that they wouldn’t take him in.

2 May 2014Endless strikes, and bargaining tactics characterised by violence and intimidation, are damaging both to workers’ own interests and to the economy, President Jacob Zuma told a Workers’ Day rally at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane on Thursday.Zuma used the Workers’ Day celebrations to call on union leaders and mine owners to find common ground to end the crippling three-month strike over wages affecting the platinum belt in South Africa’s North West province.“Unions must always be alive to the realities that endless strikes are not in the interests of the economy, and indeed are not in the interests of workers themselves,” Zuma said at a Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) rally.While democracy had given unions and workers several rights – including the rights to fair labour practice, forming and joining a union, and collective bargaining – these rights had not come cheaply, and should be used by workers “constructively to better their lives and determine their destiny,” Zuma said.The right to strike should never be allowed “to degenerate into anarchy … The methods of engagement employed by trade unions must always appreciate that we now have a democratic government put in place by an overwhelming majority of our people, most of whom are workers.”At the same time, Zuma called on companies not to exploit their labour, but to “respect the rights of workers and pay them proper wages in line with the labour framework”.He added that the mining sector needed to move faster in achieving the objectives set out in the Mining Charter. “I think we should all agree that the time has come for the situations on the mines to change.”Source: SAnews.gov

A police officer in Uttar Pradesh has been suspended after he was allegedly caught on an audio tape sharing details of a planned fake encounter with a suspected criminal and advising him on ways of surviving it.An enquiry has also been initiated against the officer, Suneet Kumar Singh, SHO of Mauranipur in Jhansi.Mr. Singh came under the scanner after an audio clip of him talking to a suspected criminal, identified as Lekhraj Yadav, on the telephone was widely circulated on social media. The veracity of the clip could not be confirmed. Lekhraj Yadav is a former block pramukh.In the lengthy conversation, Mr. Singh is heard advising Yadav to “manage” two BJP leaders Sanjay Dubey (BJP district president) and Rajiv Singh Paricha (MLA from Babina) if he wanted to survive a police encounter.‘Current govt. stricter’The police officer tells him that the current government under the BJP is stricter against criminals than the previous Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party governments and that he would have to “change with the times.”“You have 60 cases against you. You are the fittest case for encounter in UP. And this is a BJP government. Now who will help you, you figure out,” the officer says.Most of the audio is dominated by the officer’s voice and Yadav is mostly heard pleading to bail him out or inquiring about possible police action.“Madad karo yaar. Madad karo (Help, me friend. Help!),” Yadav says. Several times he is also heard claiming that false cases were lodged against him.The officer responds by saying that it is not in his control as a policy of encounters was on under the BJP rule.BJP MLA Paricha, who is named in the audio clip, said he was ready for any probe but added that if the contents of the audio were true, it raised a huge question on the role of the police officer.“That he speaks openly to a gangster and reveals police plan and gives him clues, is a matter of worry,” Mr. Paricha said.The audio clip has surfaced at a time the U.P. Police have eliminated more than 45 suspected criminals in alleged encounters since the Yogi Adityanath government took over. The Opposition parties have accused the government of engineering fake encounters and even the NHRC has sought explanations from it regarding specific cases. Samajwadi Party MLC Sunil Singh Saajan said the audio tape case had exposed the BJP government’s theory behind the encounters. “It has proven that the police is not deciding who is to be targetted in encounters, but BJP MLAs and district presidents are. They are targetting people on the basis of caste and religion, not crime,” Mr. Saajan said.

Lunch: India are in a spot of bother after losing two quick wickets early in the first session. England seamers are causing all sorts of troubles for the Indian batsmen. James Anderson opened his account yesterday while Stuart Broad’s disciplined line earned him two crucial wickets today. Broad and Anderson showed there’s enough bounce and swing in the pitch that once looked flat during the England innings. Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane have a huge task at their hands to play out the England bowlers who are currently bowling with intent. Rahane was also lucky not to be ruled out caught behind off Moeen Ali. Team India need to stabilize their innings and these two will have to play out of their skins until the ball is a bit softer to score freely. On the other hand, England will continue to exert pressure on the Indian batsmen while trying to sneak in another wicket in the next session.

Assessment notices are in the mail today, Feb. 7, to Nova Scotia property owners. In Halifax Regional Municipality, the value of residential property assessments is more than $23 billion, an increase of 10 per cent from 2006. Commercial property assessments totalled almost $8 billion, an increase of almost 8.5 per cent. “These assessments reflect a continuing increase in residential property values throughout HRM,” said Lloyd MacLellan, regional manager of the central assessment office. “The commercial increase can be explained partially because of increased commercial property values, and new commercial construction.” Property assessment notices for most residential properties will include a personal identification number along with the assessment account number. By entering this information on the assessment website, www.nsassessment.ca, owners can look up assessment information about their property. Those without Internet access can obtain the information and answers to assessment questions by calling 1-800-667-5727. Property owners may appeal the market-value assessment if they do not believe their assessment is a reasonable estimate of market value as of Jan. 1, 2005. To appeal, the form on the bottom of the assessment notice must be filled out and returned to the regional assessment office by midnight Wednesday, Feb. 28. Property owners cannot appeal the capped assessment. Residential property owners who have applied for the 2007 CAP program will know if they received the cap when they get their assessment notice. If they see a value in the capped-value section of their notice, they will be taxed on that value. The CAP rate for the 2007-2008 tax year was set by the province at 10 per cent. Applications for the CAP program for the 2007-2008 tax year were due Sept. 30, 2006. Beginning with the 2008-2009 tax year, the CAP rate will be set at Nova Scotia’s Consumer Price Index. Applications for the CAP program for the 2008-2009 tax year are due Sept. 30. They are available at any assessment office or on-line at www.gov.ns.ca/snsmr/asmt/cap/.

As per regulations, a mutual fund may invest funds in short-term deposits of schedule commercial banks, subject to certain conditions.

FARDC troops backed by attack helicopters and the Force Intervention Brigade of the UN Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO) took control of bases used by the National Liberation Front, known by the French acronym FNL, in an area of restive South Kivu Province.“The joint operation FARDC-MONUSCO against FNL is a strong signal for all armed groups, including the FDLR (Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda): the only way toward peace is through voluntary disarmament,” said MONUSCO chief, Martin Kobler.His comments come as MONUSCO prepares to launch military operations against the FDLR, another armed group operating in eastern DRC, which missed a deadline for the unconditional surrender of its forces on 2 January.They follow also a joint FARDC-MONUSCO attack against the rebel Ugandan Allied Democratic Forces in North Kivu and the arrest of Cobra Matata, leader of the Force de Résistance Patriotique de l’Ituri (FRPI) which took place over the weekend.The FNL is a Burundian group that is deemed to pose an unacceptable threat to the security and stability in the eastern DRC and the joint offensive launched against the group was part of an operation initiated in late 2014 aiming to disarm armed groups operating in the Ruzizi plain and nearby areas.The FNL’s neutralization is considered of paramount importance for MONUSCO and the FARDC to ensure civilian security in South Kivu.“We are prepared to fight all armed groups and protect civilians,” said Major General Jean Baillaud, MONUSCO Force Commander ad interim. “This military success clearly shows FARDC and MONUSCO’s capacities to conduct joint actions and their common determination to neutralize all armed groups.”
“On 26 July, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) identified at least 450 civilians who have been killed since late April – including more than a hundred in the last two weeks alone”, Mark Lowcock, the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs reminded Council members. Many hundreds more have been injured, over 440,000 displaced and dozens of civilians killed or injured by shelling of the Security Council-listed terrorist group Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and the non-State armed groups associated with them.He recounted the story of a surgeon at Idlib Central Hospital who said that while he lives at the top of the building, the patients are in the lower floors and basement, because that is where it is safest.Days before speaking to the doctor, “a bomb landing 50 meters away blew out all the glass and windows of his room”, Mr. Lowcock relayed. Today I briefed the @UN Security Council on behalf of Dr. Mohammed, his patients, the people of Idleb, and the rest of Syria. For the last 90 days, the Council has done nothing as the carnage continues. My remarks: https://t.co/eleYv8n6R3— Mark Lowcock (@UNReliefChief) July 30, 2019 Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Mark Lowcock updates the Security Council on the situation in Syria. (30 July 2019), by UN Photo/Eskinder DebebeDeconfliction systemMr. Lowcock then told the Council that through the deconfliction system, humanitarian agencies provide OCHA with information to identify “static civilian locations or humanitarian movements”, whose coordinates are then shared with International Coalition Forces, Turkey and Russia.Whether that information is being used to protect civilian facilities or to target them is “an extremely important question”, he stressed, adding his conclusion that currently, “deconfliction is not proving effective in helping to protect those who utilize the system”. “I have asked my team to meet again with the humanitarian organizations who would like their activities to be deconflicted to update them on the current situation and determine again whether we should continue to provide information to the parties on new sites or humanitarian movements”, he stated.Healthcare facilitiesTurning to a 16 July letter saying that terrorist groups took over 119 mostly-unnamed hospitals in Idlib, therefore, they can no longer be considered healthcare centres or even civilian objects, the humanitarian chief negated the claims, as well as another accusation in the letter stating that there is no ambulance network left in the province. His fourth point on whether the UN would pass information about attacks on civilians and civilian objects to the International Impartial and Independent Mechanism and Commission of Inquiry, he said “the answer is yes, we will do that, subject only to the proviso that those giving us sensitive information consent to it being passed on”.Humanitarian workThe OCHA head spoke at length about the important humanitarian work being carried out and the needs that lie ahead. “Some recent reports have claimed that UN humanitarian assistance reaches only those in areas not controlled by the Government”, he argued. “That is untrue”. Most UN assistance goes to Government-controlled areas.“Significant gaps in access still remain”, he said, noting his concern for 24,000 people in Rukban and calling “again” for access to reach them.Significant gaps in access still remain – UN Emergency Relief Coordinator “I also call on all Member States to de-escalate growing tensions along the borders in the northeast and avoid any actions that may cause further displacement, casualties and suffering.And on Idlib, he enlightened the Council that this month, “cross-border aid aims to reach some 1.2 million people”, adding that “in the current circumstances, there is no other way to provide adequate support to the three million civilians who are in the area”.“You in this Security Council have ignored all the previous pleas you have heard”, Mr. Lowcock spelled out. “You know what is happening and you have done nothing for 90 days as the carnage continues in front of your eyes”. “Are you going to…do something about it?”, asked the UN humanitarian chief. “A day or so before that, another bomb had hit a gynecological facility 200 metres away”, he said, explaining that the hospital is in a deconflicted area, which was established through a Memorandum of Understanding between Russia and Turkey to separate pro-Government forces and militant opposition fighters.Tracking information Mr. Lowcock responded to a series of questions posed by the Council on 18 July, beginning with how OHCHR gets it information. In addition to direct or verified sources, which are “triangulated, reviewed and confirmed”, he informed the members that “our teams on the ground tell us what they see” – as do partners. “Testimony comes from those closest to the source, who are assessed by the UN as credible”, he continued. “We use imagery, including satellite imagery, or geotagged and time stamped pictures of medical facilities, that have been analyzed and assessed by the UN”. The humanitarian chief added: “We see videos, of explosions, destroyed buildings, scorched bodies and screaming children”. And there are other sources, including media, humanitarian partners and UN agencies like the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the UN Population Fund (UNFPA). “Then of course there is the testimony of the people of Idlib themselves”, he asserted. “I spoke yesterday by video link to two groups of displaced people in different parts of Idlib”, who said they “are being bombed every day by the Russians and the regime”.When asked what they needed, the response was clear: “We just want the bombing to stop” because “we are afraid” and “just want to live in peace.”Mr. Lowcock maintained that many of the millions of children aged eight to 12 had been “forced to flee with their families”. “I asked if any of them go to school”, he said. “No. It’s not safe. They hit our schools”, was the response. “We all know exactly what has been happening for the last three months” in Idlib, the humanitarian chief underscored. “There is no shortage of information”.

After more than two months of consultation, the Andrews Labor Government’s draft Bill to repeal and replace the Local Government Act 1989, was met with a response by the Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV).The bill is a once-a-generation opportunity for a complete overhaul of local governance, regulating representation structures and voting methods for council elections across Victoria, while at the same time requiring that councils adopt long-term plans and budgets backed by their local communities, and calling for most council meetings to be open to the public.It is one of the key election commitments of the Andrews government, and one that is announced as a vast improvement on the governance of Victoria’s councils, ensuring ratepayers get the representation they deserve.“We’re putting people first and getting it done – updating laws that haven’t been properly updated in decades,” Minister for Local Government Marlene Kairouz had said, at the bill’s presentation,pointing to the fact that the 1989 act had been amended about 100 times.The Municipal Association of Victoria has welcomed many of the proposed reforms, while at the same time raising a number of concerns including an expanded use of regulation, electoral structures, conflict of interest provisions, and a failure to properly review the rating system.“We are pleased the Government has listened and acted on earlier feedback received from councils,” MAV President, Cr Mary Lalios said, referring to the parts of the bill that have changed from the earlier Direction’s paper. “Significant parts of the Bill have received widespread support from councils, including a new 10-year community vision and financial plan, councils determining their own community engagement policies, and the requirements for councils to have a customer complaints policy and a publicly transparent gifts policy,” she said, welcoming the opportunity to ensure the laws become more contemporary and reflect the evolution of local government.The MAV’s response is presented in detail in a draft discussion paper, which came as the outcome of six member consultations held across Victoria and attended by more than 200 mayors, councillors and officers, alongside with subsequent submissions received from councils. One of the issues of concern for the MAV is regarding a fundamental change proposed: the intent to use regulation and guidance (best practice guidelines) rather than detail through the Act. “This change minimises Parliament’s role to determine local government practices, and instead shifts it to the Minister,” Cr Lalios said. “What regulations might be introduced and their content is also unknown and raises further concerns.”The MAV is also opposed to the proposal to remove mixed multi-member wards and the combination of multi-member and single member wards. “These electoral structures have provided effective representation models in rural areas where populations are dispersed regionally and concentrated in towns,” Cr Lalios stressed.The MAV submission also reiterated local government’s ongoing opposition to the State Government rate cap and called for reconsideration of the arrangements for growth councils, together with a review and streamlining of the application process for a variation to the cap. “Rates are the single biggest component of a council’s income,” Cr Lalios said, urging the Government to consult further on this matter.

In a week when America is thanking those who have served, a Vietnam veteran wanted to thank his nurse.Steven Jimerfield was recovering from surgery about three weeks ago. It was shoulder surgery; it didn’t have anything to do with his time in Vietnam … but a part of his brain didn’t know that.And for a few minutes, the unconscious Coast Guard veteran thought he was on a river patrol boat, surrounded by jungle.“I had a flashback to Vietnam. I think I started crying,” Jimerfield said last Wednesday at Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center. “I don’t know why. I didn’t see heavy combat.”Terri Kramer, a surgical services nurse, was there to help Jimerfield through it.“Coming out of anesthesia, he was distressed. He wasn’t verbalizing much,” said Kramer, who said she knew something was going on because she has seen this sort of thing before as a nurse in the recovery room.“People don’t always know what’s going on,” Kramer said. “A police officer who was coming out of anesthesia had been (working) undercover. He thought we were going to kill him.“It’s just letting them know you’re there, recognizing that they are in distress,” the nurse said.As Jimerfield described the flashback, “I knew I was in the jungle in a PBR” — the Navy designation for patrol boat, river.He quickly realized that Kramer “was holding my hand, telling me that everything is OK, stroking my arm.”A few days ago, Jimerfield and his wife, Sharon, returned to Legacy Salmon Creek to thank Kramer. He gave Kramer a pair of commemorative coins marking the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War.
By Mark F. Gray, AFRO Staff Writer, [email protected] George’s County continues to be plagued by fatal automobile accidents. There is not any consistency with the trend of incidents which have taken the lives of victims for seven consecutive weeks since the start of 2019.These tragic incidents continued Saturday March 9 when one person was killed and three others were injured in a crash involving four vehicles on Interstate 95 near Beltsville. Maryland State Police said the crash occurred around 4:30 a.m. in the northbound lanes of I-95 before the MD-212 Exit 29 for Powder Mill Road causing traffic delays until mid-morning.Prince George’s County has been plagued by fatal automobile accidents for seven consecutive weeks since the start of 2019, most recently on I-95 before MD-212 Exit 29 for Powder Mill Road. (Courtesy Photo)Police initially said that a Honda Civic driven by an unidentified woman was traveling in the wrong direction on the northbound lanes of I-95 but, after more extensive investigation that has yet to be determined. However, what has been confirmed is the Civic was traveling on I-95 when it crashed into a Mitsubishi Gallant and into a BMW 325. The Mitsubishi was driven by Keith Hingle, 31, of Beltsville who was uninjured, according to multiple reports.The driver of the BMW, Olayanju Kayode, 35, of Laurel, flew partially through the windshield while the Honda then collided with a Lexus RX350 that was being driven by Earl Ross Jr., 46, of Mechanicsville. Reports say the Honda drifted onto the right shoulder of the road, and caught fire with the driver inside, who died at the scene, police said. NBC 4 News identified the Honda driver as 57-year-old Shana Subram, a wife and mother of two children with autism, who was on her way to work as a physician’s assistant at a jail in Baltimore.Subram, loved her job, but lived in Rockville and worried about her long commute. “She wanted to leave this job for the longest time. It is very dangerous going there,” Subram’s husband Hans Bergmann told NBC 4 News.Antoine Bethea, 43, of Gaither Street in Temple Hills was killed when his car ran off the road and hit a tree in Upper Marlboro during the late evening hours on Thursday February 28. According to multiple reports Bethea was the only victim in the accident.He was pronounced dead on the scene. There has been no indication of foul play, racing or collision and there were no witnesses to the accident.Patrol officers were called to the 11000 block of Old Marlboro Pike for a fatal collision involving a single vehicle. When the officers arrived, they found a mangled vehicle that veered off the road with Bethea’s body unconscious and unresponsive inside.Then in Oxon Hill, a pedestrian victim was located on the 100 block of Monument Avenue in Oxon Hill, near MGM National Harbor for the report of an injured person in the roadway.The preliminary investigation lasted well into the night and officers were able to ultimately locate and view surveillance video which is the only piece of evidence that provides any context to what may have happened.It showed the pedestrian attempting to cross Monument Avenue when an unknown-colored sedan traveling from Rivercrest Road merged onto Monument Avenue and struck him. Video shows the sedan, after impact, slowed down for a moment and then sped back up towards the Beltway and left the scene. The pedestrian was not in a crosswalk.Law enforcement officials have identified the victim and notified his family but haven’t released his name as the investigation continues while his life is uncertain.Southern Maryland roads in the Oxon Hill corridor continue to be the most dangerous roadways in the state. AAA Mid-Atlantic released data from its analysis of crash data provided by County police in January which revealed at least 14 traffic related in crashes along MD Rt. 210 over the past four years. Three pedestrians also have died there since 2013. Four motorcyclists were also killed in crashes on Indian Head Highway between 2014 and 2017. At the current pace 2019 may shatter the dubious record by mid-summer.
Kolkata: Metro services was disrupted during office hours on Monday morning, when passengers agitated at Sovabazar Metro station after air-conditioning facilities in a compartment stopped functioning.

ADT works by blocking prostate cancer’s supply of male hormones in the testes. It is a cornerstone treatment for recurrent prostate cancer, but it often stops working, allowing cancer to progress and spread. In 2013, Sharifi discovered that prostate cancer cells with the genetic abnormality survive ADT by producing their own androgens.In the first new study, Sharifi and colleagues from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Harvard/Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center analyzed 213 men whose prostate cancer recurred after radiation therapy and underwent ADT. They found for the first time that following radiation and ADT, prostate cancer was much more likely to spread — and spread rapidly — in men who had the HSD3B1(1245C) variant.The second study, performed in collaboration with researchers at University of California San Francisco, examined a group of 90 men with metastatic cancer that had become resistant to ADT. These patients were subsequently treated with the drug ketoconazole, which blocks the production of androgens outside of the testes (e.g., those developed by prostate cancer cells that are evading ADT treatment).Surprisingly, men with the genetic anomaly fared better on ketoconazole than men without the variant. This finding raises the possibility that targeting variant tumors’ backup androgen supply (outside of the testes) could be a successful strategy when ADT fails.”We hypothesized that HSD3B1(1245C) variant tumors become resistant to ADT because they have a backup supply of androgens,” said Sharifi. “However, relying on these extra-gonadal androgens makes them more sensitive to ketoconazole.”These discoveries complement earlier studies and support the use of HSD3B1(1245C) as a predictive biomarker to help guide critical treatment decisions. While the outlook of patients with this gene variant is poor, these studies offer hope for a new treatment strategy for these men, and more studies are needed using next-generation androgen inhibitors, such as abiraterone and enzalutamide.”We are hopeful that these findings will lead to more personalized and effective treatments for prostate cancer,” said Sharifi. “If men carry a specific testosterone-related genetic abnormality we may be able to personalize their therapy and treat specific patients more aggressively.”This work was supported by the U.S. Department of Defense, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Prostate Cancer Foundation, American Cancer Society, the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command and grants from the National Cancer Institute.For more information: www.jamanetwork.com/journals/jamaoncology FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Proton Therapy | August 08, 2019 MD Anderson to Expand Proton Therapy Center The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center unveiled plans to expand its Proton Therapy Center during a… read more
Microsoft announced a new game streaming project for Xbox yesterday, namely, Project xCloud. Microsoft is not the only one who has rolled out their game streaming service, Google announced a new experimental game streaming service, namely, Project Stream, last week, that lets the users play Assassin’s Creed in Chrome among other things. Project xCloud is a game streaming technology that enables existing Xbox users to play on any device that they want to without being limited to a particular device. This means gamers can choose either console or PC depending on their preference. Mobile-only players can also access the worlds, characters and immersive stories that they haven’t been able to experience before on a mobile. Project xCloud provides gamers with plenty of options and does so without altering the performance and experience of the game. “Our goal with Project xCloud is to deliver a quality experience for all gamers on all devices that’s consistent with the speed and high-fidelity gamers experience and expect on their PCs and consoles”, mentions Kareem Choudhry, Corporate VP, Gaming Cloud, Microsoft on the announcement page.” Microsoft Microsoft admits that Cloud game-streaming is a “multi-faceted, complex challenge”. In order to provide high-quality experience across different devices, it is crucial to watch out for obstacles, such as low-latency video streamed remotely, and support for a large, multi-user network. “With our nearly 40 years of gaming experience starting with PC, as well as our deep experience of being a platform company, we are equipped to address the complex challenge of cloud game-streaming”, mentions Choudhary. Microsoft had been working on Project xCloud over the past few years and aims to bring the public trials of this project in 2019. Moreover, Microsoft wants to make it easy for developers to bring their content to Project xCloud and deliver an amazing experience to the existing Xbox players. Developers will be able to deploy and dramatically scale to hundreds of millions of users across all devices on Project xCloud with no additional work. Microsoft has data centers in 54 Azure regions and services available in 140 countries, meaning that Azure has the scale to offer great gaming experience for players worldwide, regardless of their location. “We’ve enabled compatibility with existing and future Xbox games by building out custom hardware for our datacenters that leverages our years of console and platform experience. We’ve architected a new customizable blade that can host the component parts of multiple Xbox One consoles, as well as the associated infrastructure supporting it. We will scale those custom blades in datacenters across Azure regions over time”, writes Choudhry. Project xCloud was tested yesterday by Microsoft. The test was carried out on different devices (mobile phones, tablets) paired with an Xbox Wireless Controller through Bluetooth. As of now, the test experience is running at 10 megabits per second. Microsoft is also developing a new, game-specific touch input overlay that offers a maximum response in a minimal footprint to players wanting to play without a controller. Additionally, Project xCloud makes game streaming possible on 4G networks. “We are looking forward to learning with you during our public trials next year and sharing more details as we continue on this journey to the future of gaming with you at the center”, says Choudhary.

logic of modernisation would flatten regional and parochial identities and allow for the emergence of nationwide cleavages Polity-wide parties that extend across the country were the players to watch out for and the government at the Centre was the big prize to be won A connected idea is that politics at the state level is secondary and important only insofar as it tell us something about national politics Howeverpolitical processes in India rarely follow predetermined scripts Parties that advanced particularistic identities and formed around distinctive regionally concentrated interests did not fade away Insteadsome even displaced polity-wide parties as the major actors in some states At the same timedespite a strong-Centre based Constitutionstates have become the primary arena of politics in the country Despite their long lineagedespite winning and governing at the state-level and playing a prominent role in federal coalitionssingle-state parties like the DMKRJDTDPAIADMKJMMNational ConferenceAkali Dal and Shiv Senaamong others are viewed not just with disdain but are also seen to be the cause of most ills The assumption is that these parties are born short-sighted and when they dictate terms at the national level it does more harm than good But no matter what the critics saypolitics since the 1990s has shown that single-state political parties are here to stay The vote share of single-state parties and independents has gone up from around 21 per cent in the ninth Lok Sabha to 364 per cent in the current Lok Sabha At the same timethe two polity-wide partiesthe Congress and the BJPobtained less than 50 per cent of the votes in the 15th general elections In the literature on political parties and party systemsboth the sociological and institutional perspectives would allude to compelling reasons for the continued existence of single-state parties Indias social diversitycombined with numerous cross-cutting cleavagesopens space for the existence of a wide order of political parties The first-past-the-post electoral system and a parliamentary federal institutional framework incentivise political parties to territorialise and choose among multiple strategies Potentiallythey could compete only at the state level either in one state or some statesonly at the federal level or follow a mixed strategy and compete at multiple levels In this frameworkparties may be content mobilising only a section of the population and need not always aspire for a polity-wide status Much of the critique of the so-called regional political parties is based on a single-level polity-wide vision and fails to appreciate politics at multiple levels Secondevaluating single-state and region-based partiesas well as polity-wide partiesusing the same lensis inappropriate Thirdit ignores a host of interrelated changesespecially in the party systemover the last two decades The primary operational arenapolitical project and policies of state-based parties are territory specific They tend to mobilise people around the claim that they are best equipped to defend the interests of the state In contrastpolity-wide parties organisecompete and have interests at different levels While polity-wide parties aim to win power independently at the national levelstate-based parties may think of governing at the Centre only as a part of a coalitiongiven that the seats they contest are much lower The demands for special concessionspackages and resources on the Central government that often get highlighted are part of the assemblage of mobilisational strategy of single-state parties The limited electoral appeal of these parties obviously qualifies their goals and concerns The projection of these limited goals onto national politics brings out the interrelation and complexity of politics in a multi-level polity It is not that these complexities did not exist earlier political competition in India has primarily revolved around the use of state resources The Congressduring the height of its dominancemanipulated public policy instruments along electoral cycles to serve state-specific interests The only difference today is that the compromises no longer take place in the shadows The loud bargaining and posturing often witnessed highlights the reality of territorial differentiationand is an intrinsic part of the game Finallyit is also important to factor in the changes in the party system The weakening of the Congress and the emergence of a competitive multi-party system hasover a period of timeparadoxically also led to a significant decline in anti-Congressism This represents a fundamental shift in the way politics was organised since the late 1960s Heightened competitiveness has also led to a reduction in the distinctiveness among political parties To increase their coalition potentialparties have moderated their views and are increasingly looking similar to one another Parties also appear to be willing to join with each other more readily than before This convergence makes it difficult to distinguish saint from sinner Acknowledging the differential operational logic of single-state and

Asked if any action has been taken against the owners ADFO clearly said that “their hands are tied in the absence of any law to book them” “The new Punjab Fire Safety Measures and Prevention Act framed in 2012 is yet to be implemented We do not have any set rules to follow and it is still pending with the Punjab government We cannot seal any building book any owner or issue any notice till we get a copy of the rules” said ADFO Asked why the fire department did not recommend registration of any FIR in case of three deaths on April 26 he said “The police were present on the spot It is their responsibility to file an FIR in case of death The three persons of a Nepal-based family were living in deplorable condition in a small room and had no way to escape There wasn’t even a fan They should have registered an FIR immediately as they also have post mortem reports of the deceased” “We have filed inquest proceedings under section 174 of CrPC No FIR has been registered as forensic lab report is still awaited to know the exact reason of fire” said Davinder Singh SHO of division number 6 police station The fire department probe further says that as per National Building Code of India the gutted establishments flouted rules and never bothered to get any fire safety arrangements “Had the new Act been implemented and its rules given to us we could have sent the culprit to jail for three months and impose a fine of Rs 50000” said one fire department official “Factories are flouting other norms too The district administration is suposed to keep a check on these factories The fire in most of cases spread because of flammable materials like oil chemicals and plastic Our three firemen have been seriously injured too because fire went beyond control due to these hazardous material” added the ADFO ‘Of 16 fire tenders 10 running illegally’ Shockingly Ludhiana which reports 300-400 major fires a year has only 16 fire tenders of which 10 are running illegally There is requirement of at least 33 tenders and 500 firemen keeping in view a population of 35 lakh “Of 16 fire tenders we have only six are new and ten are outdated As per Fire Advisory Council a fire tender should not be older than ten years and as per Punjab state transport rules it cannot be older than fifteen years However our ten fire tenders are nearly 18-year-old Then even hose pipes leak and are insufficient We need at least 500 firemen but there are only 103 including officials There are no hydraulic ladders and there is an extreme shortage of mechanical foam which is a pre-requisite to extinguish industrial fires This is the state of Ludhiana’s fire department which gets 950 fire calls a year of which 300-400 are major ones” said ADFO Surjit Singh Fire dept in a mess says MC chief Ludhiana MC chief Jaskiran Singh said that the fire department is indeed in a mess but it is being sorted out “I have written to the Director of Local Bodies Department that we have only six fire tenders in working state and ten are almost junk We need at least 400 more firemen State government is in the process of making a separate directorate for the fire department and new rules are also
