Official UN Roundtable is Chance to Settle Confidence Building Issues

Rabat – The secretary of state to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mounia Boucetta, said that the United Nations roundtable talks on Western Sahara, set to begin tomorrow, will be an opportunity to settle the issue of confidence-building measures.On Monday, Boucetta emphasized that Morocco’s autonomy plan proposal remains the only realistic solution to the conflict.Recalling the recently adopted UN Resolution 2440, Boucetta said that the Security Council’s decision marks a significant step forward, especially because it stressed the need to open a new chapter in the UN-led political process. In her address made at the House of Representatives on Monday, Boucetta said that the resolution is important because it “recognizes Algeria’s central role as a party invited to the Geneva roundtable.”Boucetta said that the resolution also dealt “a hard blow to the myth of the liberated territories.”Read also: Bourita to Lead Moroccan Delegation to UN Western Sahara Talks in GenevaThe Security Council voted on October 31 in favor of the resolution, which warned Polisario to adhere to its commitments in Western Sahara, its buffer zones, and east of Morocco’s defense berm.Claimed as liberated zones by the front, the resolution listed Bir Lahlou and Tifariti as restricted zones, saying Polisario should not move its administrative offices to them and should respect its commitments to the UN.The UN talks in Geneva will convene tomorrow and Thursday, December 5-6, at the request of the personal envoy of the UN Secretary-General, Horst Kohler.Morocco’s delegation at the Geneva talks will evaluate Algeria’s readiness to accept its role in the conflict without preconditions. Algeria has denied its role in the Western Sahara conflict, claiming itself as an “observer” to the conflict.The UN’s resolution sent a clear message when it included Algeria with Morocco, Mauritania, and the Polisario Front in its instruction that the parties should “work constructively” to find an agreed upon and mutually acceptable solution to the conflict.Read also: Polisario Defies Resolution 2440 Ahead of UN Talks on Western SaharaMoroccan officials have also affirmed that the roundtable is far from being part of negotiations. The roundtable will instead serve as an initial step toward future negotiations. The roundtable’s agenda will be a general discussion about the recent developments of the Western Sahara dossier and a review of Kohler’s visit to the region in June.Morocco’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Bourita will lead the Moroccan delegation, which includes Morocco’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Omar Hilale, President of the Laayoune-Sakia El Hamra region Sidi Hamdi Ould Errachid, and President of the Dakhla-Oued Eddahab region Ynja Khattat.The delegation also includes Fatima Adli, a member of the Smara municipal council. read more

A group of celebrity ambassadors with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) today called for greater efforts to provide “education for all” at their annual meeting at the agency’s headquarters in Paris.“Education is a fundamental human right, yet millions of children and adults around the world are still deprived of access to basic education and technology” said Princess Firyal of Jordan and French musician Jean Michel Jarre on behalf of the 19 Goodwill Ambassadors present at the meeting.In their statement, the ambassadors also said that respect for cultural diversity and languages is a key to social development and peace, and added that there should be a renewed focus on the environment. “Now is the time to face up to the challenges of an over-exploited planet and to take steps to preserve it for generations to come,” they said.The Goodwill Ambassadors committed themselves to work on raising awareness about global warming. “2008 is the International Year of Planet Earth. This is a timely opportunity for us all to be less self-centred and to strive for a better future” added Jean Michel Jarre.Meeting on the World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development and during the International Year of Languages, the UNESCO Goodwill Ambassadors noted that half of the world’s 7000 languages currently face extinction. They also made a plea to governments to promote bi- and multilingual education, and to respect mother languages in all countries. read more

Ban underlines the role of information technologies in accelerating development

“Through e-learning, e-health, e-government, climate monitoring and more, today’s and tomorrow’s technologies will help bring the Millennium Development Goals [MDGs] within reach,” Mr. Ban said in his message to the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) Forum, which got under way today in Geneva.“The power of fixed and mobile broadband will further improve our ability to extend basic services to communities – even those in the remotest places – in ways that where inconceivable when the MDGs were first articulated more than a decade ago.“With the agreed international deadline of 2015 fast approaching, our priority must be to translate the partnerships and progress generated by the WSIS process into tangible achievements that are globally and equitably distributed,” he added.World leaders, experts, government representatives and United Nations officials are attending the five-day forum to discuss the use of ICTs to accelerate development and give impetus to efforts to achieve the global poverty reduction goals.Guest speakers at today’s opening ceremony included government ministers from 17 countries.Delegates also heard from Hamadoun Touré, the Secretary-General of the UN International Telecommunications Union (ITU); Supachai Panitchpakdi, the Secretary-General of UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD); Juan Somavia, Director-General of the UN International Labour Organization (ILO); Janis Karklins, the Deputy Director of the UN Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), as well as other senior officials in the ICT field.Dr. Touré stressed the importance of broadband to national economic and social development.“I think we are all very much aware of how close we are to the 2015 deadline for meeting the WSIS targets and the Millennium Development Goals. We have made quite extraordinary progress in terms of connectivity, the creation of an enabling environment, and cybersecurity. The next major step must be to repeat the ‘mobile miracle’ for broadband Internet,” he said. The Forum will also serve as the venue for the UN Group on the Information Society’s first meeting of the open consultation process on the overall review of the implementation of the WSIS outcomes.As well as reviewing progress towards the WSIS targets set for 2015, this year’s forum will also foster interactive debate and the exchange of information on topics such as rural development, multilingualism, environmental sustainability, education, health care and innovation.The Secretary-General stressed that by engaging governments, the UN family, civil society and the private sector, the international community has been able to accelerate the achievement of targets to improve access to ICTs for people and communities worldwide.“With the agreed international [MDG] deadline of 2015 fast approaching, our priority must be to translate the partnerships and progress generated by the WSIS process into tangible achievements that are globally and equitably distributed,” he said.More than 1,000 representatives from 140 countries are expected to attend the week-long event, organized jointly by ITU, UNESCO, UNCTAD and the UN Development Programme (UNDP). 16 May 2011Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today underlined the role of information and communications technologies (ICTs) in accelerating socio-economic development, highlighting their potential to enable the delivery of basic social services to even the remotest areas of the world. read more

WatchTSX ends higher Wall Street suffers more declines after Tuesdays selloff

TORONTO — The Toronto stock market pushed ahead on Wednesday, but couldn’t recover the losses from the previous day, as most sectors headed modestly higher.The S&P/TSX composite index moved 97.44 points higher at 14,739.20, following a big sell-off on Tuesday prompted by worries about higher interest rates in the U.S. The Canadian dollar dropped 0.5 of a cent to 78.36 cents US, coming off of a six-year low of 78.14 cents US earlier in the day.The Dow Jones industrials extended its decline another 27.55 points to 17,635.39 after plunging more than 300 points on Tuesday. The Nasdaq slid 9.86 points to 4,849.94 while the S&P 500 index was off 3.92 of a point to 2,040.24.BMO Capital Markets chief economist Doug Porter said financial markets around the world have been weighing the “powerful move” in the U.S. dollar in recent weeks.“What’s driving that is the view the Federal Reserve is priming itself to begin raising interest rates at the very time the Euopean Central Bank has embarked on quantitative easing and other banks are either cutting rates or also trying to engage in stimulant measures,” he said.The U.S. dollar strength has created a ripple effect, adding pressure to gold prices which ended the session at their lowest level since early November.The April gold bullion contract was down US$9.50 at US$1,150.60 an ounce, while the May copper contract was down a 1.8 cents at US$2.61 a pound.Aside from pressure from the U.S. currency, the loonie is also being squeezed by the low price of oil, which has been trading at about US$50 a barrel — down from more than US$100 a barrel last summer.The April crude oil contract settled 12 cents lower at US$48.17 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, while the TSX energy sector rose 1.4%.Technology stocks were ahead 1.3%, buoyed partly on shares of Constellation Software (TSX:CSU) which jumped 3.8% to $441.22.A subsidiary of Constellation Software bought InterAct911 Corp., a computer-aided dispatch and records management company for primarily U.S. law enforcement. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed. In earnings, Quebecor Inc. (TSX:QBR.B) says adjusted profits at its continuing media and telecom operations rose 3.5% to $50.3 million from a year earlier. On a per share basis, the results were 41 cents, below analyst estimates of 52 cents per share. Quebecor class B shares fell 44 cents to $33.29.Air Canada (TSX:AC) has signed a codeshare agreement with Brazil’s GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes that will make it easier for travellers to connect through the two airlines’ networks. The agreement expands an interline agreement that allows travellers to make a single reservation for flights on both airlines. Air Canada shares rose 19 cents to $12.41. read more

New Owner Sale of TV Guide for 1 Needs to be Taken

first_imgIt came as startling news to many when the financial terms of TV Guide’s sale were revealed, showing that California-based investment firm OpenGate Capital paid $1—less than the cover price of one single issue—to purchase the print brand from owner Macrovision. On top of that, Macrovision said it would lend OpenGate up to $9.5 million at a surprisingly low 3 percent interest rate.Is this like paying the garbage man to take your trash away? It seems crazy that Macrovision, after its acquisition of Gemstar-TV Guide for $2.8 billion, would cough up nearly $10 million in loans, to an investment firm no less, to get the magazine off its books. There again, in this rollercoaster of an economic environment, anything is possible.According to OpenGate founder and managing partner Andrew Nikou, terms of the sale need to be “taken into perspective.” Here is his statement regarding the acquisition terms, via a TV Guide spokesperson: “Macrovision’s recent disclosure of the terms of the sale of TV Guide need to be taken into perspective, given the magazine’s history and unprecedented relaunch in 2005.TV Guide is a company with an exceptionally strong foundation, built around a subscriber base of over 3 million, a weekly readership in excess of 21 million, a powerful brand that commands trust and loyalty, and a world class organization able to produce a leading entertainment magazine with stunning photography and unique features-driven editorial content.However, the magazine’s reinvention from a listings guide to a contemporary television entertainment magazine has been not only highly promising and successful to date, but has also been a very costly undertaking. With losses over $20 million in 2007 and further losses expected in 2008, all of this combined with significant deferred subscription and other operational liabilities, OpenGate is stepping in with the commitment to successfully complete the magazine’s turn-around, which targets restored profitability by the end of 2009, and to re-establishing TV Guide as the premier television entertainment magazine in the country.This commitment will enhance the value of this unique franchise and is a tribute to the underlying strength and potential of the brand that has so far demonstrated its ability to withstand the test of time.”last_img read more

Jordyn Woods Interview With Jada Pinkett Smith on Red Table Talk Sets

first_img“This is grown-woman mess on another level,” Woods told Pinkett Smith.How exactly the 7.5 million viewers for the most recent “Red Table Talk” stacks up with the rest of Facebook’s lineup of funded content is unknown: The company did not provide comparable stats for other shows, except to say the Woods episode drew the biggest audience among all originals. Also, Facebook is citing the total number of people who viewed at least one minute of the episode rather than the average minute audience (which is the TV industry’s standard).Meanwhile, the Woods episode of “Red Table Talk” also garnered 285,000 social and press mentions in less than a week, per Facebook — also a record for Watch originals.In addition, within the first 72 hours, the Jordyn Woods episode of “Red Table Talk” registered over 800,000 interactions, including reactions and comments. The social engagement stats are important measures for Facebook, which is funding content for Watch with the goal of helping spur the growth of user communities and overall activity.“Red Table Talk,” with 5.5 million followers on Facebook, has been one of the company’s leading originals since the company first rolled out Watch in the U.S. about 18 months ago. Produced by Westbrook Studios and Very Tall Productions, the talk show centers on Jada Pinkett Smith, along with her daughter Willow and mother Adrienne, in a series of candid conversations with guests that have included Gabrielle Union, Ellen Pompeo, and survivors who appeared in the Lifetime docu-series “Surviving R. Kelly.” The premiere episode featured a conversation between Pinkett Smith and Will Smith’s ex-wife, Sheree Zampino.There’s also a companion discussion group for “Red Table Talk” with more than 477,000 members, who discuss a range of issues like addiction, loss, domestic violence, and race relations.Meanwhile, Westbrook Studios — a short-form content company, owned by Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith and Miguel Melendez — is producing another show for Facebook Watch, from Pinkett Smith’s husband: “Will Smith’s Bucket List,” with the actor engaging in different adventures and stunts around the world. Since bowing Feb. 27 on Facebook Watch, the first episode, in which Will urges Jada to go skydiving in Dubai, has notched over 40 million views (based on the three-second standard). Jordyn Woods’ emotional interview with Jada Pinkett Smith on Facebook Watch’s “Red Table Talk” had a record number of viewers on its first day of release — making it the platform’s most-watched original episode ever in that time frame.The episode, “Jordyn Woods Shares The Truth,” was posted at 12 p.m. ET on Friday, March 1. Within 24 hours, it had been viewed by about 7.5 million Facebook users for at least 60 seconds, according to the company. That’s a separate metric from Facebook’s public views counter, which tabulates a “view” if a video is watched for as little as three seconds.In the segment, Woods spoke exclusively with Pinkett Smith about rumors that Woods had sex with NBA star Tristan Thompson, the father of Khloe Kardashian’s daughter, at a party over Presidents Day weekend. Woods — who has been Kylie Jenner’s best friend — admitted she kissed Thompson and grew “touchy-feely” with him, but denied sleeping with him and asserted that she wasn’t the reason he and Khloe split up. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

The company generates the bulk of its revenue from ads in users’ News Feeds, but is trying to win more ad business for longer-form episodic video. Facebook is now pitching advertisers on TV-style upfront buys for Watch programming with fixed rate cards, and also is emphasizing the “brand safety” of the original and third-party content in the Watch queue.

Lufthansa A350900 – Ni hao Hong Kong

first_imgLufthansa A350-900 – Ni hao Hong KongLufthansa A350-900 – Ni hao Hong KongFrom 12 September, Lufthansa will be offering flights to Hong Kong on an Airbus A350-900. “Our passengers can now experience the world’s most advanced long-haul aircraft for the first time on a flight to the Far East. The flight to Hong Kong is one of the longest routes in the Lufthansa flight schedule. Flying on the A350-900 gives passengers an extraordinary experience. An optimized level of cabin pressure ensures that they arrive feeling more rested”, says Wilken Bormann, CEO of the Munich hub. Due to the flight distance—at 10,000 kilometers—Hong Kong will be served by two aircraft flying alternatively. These will be the fourth and fifth A350-900 aircraft due to be delivered to Lufthansa on 12. August and 2 September respectively, bearing the identifiers D-AIXD and D-AIXE. The A350’s maiden flight to Hong Kong will take off on 12 September at 22:30 and will be welcomed for the first time in Hong Kong eleven hours later at 15:35 local time on 13 September.Hong Kong is an important destination for business travelers and there are plenty of interesting sights for holiday-makers to discover, too. Asia’s third largest metropolis offers visitors an unusual mix of Western and Asian culture. There are unforgettable experiences to be had, such as the view across the skyline, which is beyond comparison, or a visit to Victoria Peak. Hong Kong is also an important trade center and a key transportation hub for Asia.With the arrival of the A350-900, a state-of-the-art newcomer has now joined the fleet at Lufthansa. The first of fifteen A350-900 arrived in Munich in February to be stationed there.

Flu season at its peak health officials warn

first_imgHealth authorities on Monday urged the public to take precautions as the flu season is now at its peak.The flu season started the last two weeks of December, some two weeks earlier than usual, and has spread rapidly.According to the Head of the Infectious Disease Surveillance Unit of the health ministry, Maria Koliou, the most common flu this year is virus type A.Flu, she said, is currently at its peak.“One in two samples we send for testing is positive to flu,” Koliou told state broadcaster CyBC. She added that nine out of 10 of these samples are flu virus A, and there have been some serious incidences. The health ministry, she said, would assess these cases and issue an announcement within the coming weeks.Each year, Koliou said, one subtype of flu prevails.“This year, it seems to be the H1N1 subtype of the influenza A virus, the one that caused the outbreak in 2009. It is now a subtype of the common, seasonal flu,” Koliou said.Influenza — also known as the flu — is a contagious viral infection that attacks the respiratory system. Type A influenza is the most serious and known to cause widespread outbreaks and diseases. There is also type B and C.“Flu is not a simple cold, it is a heavy condition, starts suddenly with shivers, pain in the joints, muscle aches, cough, runny nose, intense fatigue,” Koliou said.It is for that reason, she said, that vulnerable groups must be vaccinated against flu.“Even now, persons in high-risk groups may be vaccinated while flu is manifested,” she said.These groups include persons suffering from chronic diseases, diabetes, and heart and kidney problems.Koliou urged members of the public, especially those ill with flu, to take precautions to avoid infecting others.When coughing patients must use a tissue and throw it away immediately and must wash their hands, since the flu virus can remain alive in fluids for a few hours.“It is easy to transfer to others with unwashed hands,” she said.Parents ought to keep their children at home if they have the flu, while windows must remain slightly open in closed spaces to allow fresh air to circulate. You May LikeSecurity SaversWindows Users Advised To Do This TodaySecurity SaversUndoMBA Degrees | Search AdsMBA Programs Online – See For YourselfMBA Degrees | Search AdsUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)UndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Number of Gesy doctors on the rise

first_imgThe number of Gesy doctors is on the rise with specialists now surpassing 700, it emerged on Tuesday, though acutely understaffed public hospital A&E departments remain overcrowded.By 3pm on Monday, a total of 1,219 doctors were registered with Gesy, of which 702 were specialists, 390 GPs and 127 paediatricians.Gesy now offers doctors across all medical specialisations, apart from allergology, while just one cytologist is currently available on the Gesy list, HIO figures show. Cardiologists now total 85, while there are 58 obstetricians-gynecologists. There are also 20 available dermatologists, and four paediatric cardiologists.Services to Gesy have also been offered by 56 general surgeons, 11 neurosurgeons, 28 ophthalmologists, 48 orthopedics, and a rising number of pulmonologists and ENT doctors who by Wednesday totalled 29 and 21 respectively.Numbers are expected to rise further as a number of contracts have still to be processed by the HIO.The implementation of Gesy has however left a dent in public hospital A&E departments which are primarily staffed by pathologists, a wave of whom have chosen to open up private practices as GPs under Gesy rather than stay in their state jobs, as signing on to Gesy has proven more financially lucrative for them.A visitor to the Nicosia general hospital A&E department on Tuesday told the Cyprus Mail: “It’s a third-world situation. There were 100 people waiting for emergency care but only one doctor.”“You could die,” she added.Out of the 21 doctors that initially staffed the A&E department, only six are left and two of those are also leaving soon, she said, according to what one doctor there told her.After members of state doctors union Pasyki staged a 24-hour strike at A&E departments island-wide earlier in the month over acute understaffing issues, assurances were given by the health ministry and the state health services (Okypy) that the issues were to be promptly resolved, though it appears that steps have yet to be taken.At the time, Pasyki said that remaining A&E doctors have been working without a break for months which puts burnt-out doctors at risk of making medical errors.You May LikePlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementCardiologist: This Is What Happens When You Eat GlutenGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)UndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
