New York –   Costa Rica reiterated on Friday before the 4th Committee of the United Nations General Assembly its support for a political solution to the conflict over Western Sahara.Speaking at the Committee general debate, Ambassador Rodrigo Alberto Carazo, Permanent Representative of Costa Rica to the United Nations, reiterated his country’s “full support for the efforts of the Secretary-General and his Personal Envoy aimed at reaching a fair, lasting and mutually acceptable political solution” to the regional dispute over the Moroccan Sahara.For Costa Rica, reaching a lasting solution to this conflict is necessary to address the new challenges facing the region, hence the importance of the role of the United Nations in resolving this dispute, Alberto Carazo pointed out. read more

Costa Rica urges UN to work for cuts in military spending to

2 October 2007The Foreign Minister of Costa Rica today urged leaders attending the General Assembly’s annual high-level debate to work for cuts in military spending to fund development objectives. The Foreign Minister of Costa Rica today urged leaders attending the General Assembly’s annual high-level debate to work for cuts in military spending to fund development objectives.“Multilateralism is not built on tests of strength,” Bruno Stagno Ugarte declared.He cited statistics compiled by the Millennium Project which estimated that if the world spent one tenth of its current expenditures on military spending – some $1.2 trillion – “we would have met the targets for 2006 for all the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in all countries.” The MDGs are time-bound targets for addressing poverty and other social ills.“Security does not come from multiplying weapons; history has already proven this too many times,” he said. “Security comes from remedying injustice, easing shortages [and] creating opportunities so that we can have collective prosperity on par with collective security.”He cited Article 26 of the United Nations Charter, which calls for promoting “the establishment and maintenance of international peace and security with the least diversion for armaments of the world’s human and economic resources” and said it was a “dead letter” that should be brought to life. The Foreign Minister said the UN must be able to learn from its mistakes. “We do a disservice to the credibility and effectiveness of this Organization if every time we experience a difficult or inconvenient situation we simply produce a report for the archives,” he said. Nicolás Maduro Moros, Venezuela’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, urged an overhaul of the UN to enable it to better serve the world’s people.The creation of a “multipolar world of balance without imperialistic hegemony is urgent, and it is possible,” he said. “This Organization has to be transformed. It has to rebuild itself to be the faithful instrument of a multipolar world,” he added.He said 17 years of a unipolar world has shown the need to overhaul multilateral organizations so that they can better serve humankind.He called for the UN to move towards democratization of Security Council through an expansion of both the permanent and non-permanent members. He also advocated strengthening the political role of the Secretary-General and other measures that would enable the UN to “move forward with new mechanisms of dialogue and coexistence towards a world of peace, justice and equality.”The Foreign Minister of Uruguay, Reinaldo Gargano, urged specific measures to help developing countries, including the elimination of subsidies, to allow them to compete fairly on the international market.“Developing countries don’t need aid so much as free access to markets,” he declared.He also emphasized the importance of the economic integration of South America, a region he noted serves as a stabilizing and peaceful force in the world.While hailing the continent’s natural resources, which should suffice to eliminate poverty, he decried the current “criminal” situation whereby half of South America’s 400 million inhabitants live below the poverty line.Peru’s Vice Minister Secretary-General of Foreign Affairs, Gonzalo Gutiérrez Reinel, also called for measures to reform the UN. “To reinforce its legitimacy, it is necessary to expedite the procedures and reduce the agenda of the General Assembly,” he said, urging also reform of the Security Council to make it a “more efficient, transparent, legitimate, representative forum with better work methods.”In addition, he stressed the relevance of the work of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) in coordinating cooperation strategies for development and for dealing with emergencies.Looking to next month’s official launch of the International Year of the Potato, he said, “This celebration is of singular meaning for my country, since the potato is originally from Peru.”He noted that Peru has great genetic diversity. “The cultivation of the potato was developed since time immemorial by the civilizations that gave rise to the current Peru and is one of the major contributions to the world’s food supply,” he said.For its part, he said Peru has declared 2008 as the “National Year of the Potato” and has set a calendar of wide-ranging actions to be carried out in conjunction with the UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO). read more

Security Council welcomes progress towards new government in Côte dIvoire

“Members of the Council express concern at recent violations of the ceasefire and call on all parties to respect the commitments they made and to immediately end attacks that undermined the process of peace and reconciliation,” the Council’s President, Ambassador Adolfo Aguilar Zinser of Mexico, said in a press statement.To that end, the Council members expressed their deep concern at the use of mercenaries, other foreign armed elements, forced recruitment, including recruitment of children, and demanded all parties to immediately refrain from such practices.Also concerned about the humanitarian situation, members of the Council called upon the parties to respect human rights and international humanitarian law, Ambassador Zinser said, adding that they also called on the parties to continue to move the Linas-Marcoussis process forward. In that regard, they welcomed a new decree delegating powers to the Prime Minster, and reaffirmed their willingness to support the efforts of the parties in implementing their commitments, he said.”They took note with satisfaction of the 11 April statement of Ivoirian President Laurent Gbagbo and called for its implementation,” Ambassador Zinser said, adding that the Council members also reaffirmed their full support for the monitoring committee created under the new peace accord.”Members of the Council renewed their support for the French and Economic Community of West Africa (ECOWAS) forces,” he said, and stressed that they had called on donors to distribute the contributions they have announced to finance and, if possible, strengthen ECOWAS forces.The Council also called on Member States to respond to the appeal that will be launched at the end of the month in Abidjan and Geneva, the Council President said.”Members of the Council recalled their intention to travel in the near future to West Africa, in particular to Côte d’Ivoire,” he added. read more

Ohio State womens ice hockey swept by Minnesota Duluth to close out

OSU then-junior defenseman Cara Zubko (2) passes the puck during a game against Minnesota on Nov. 15 at the OSU Ice Rink. OSU lost, 5-3. Credit: Ed Momot / For The LanternThe Ohio State women’s ice hockey team recorded its fifth series-losing sweep of the season in its 2015 finale to drop its record to 6-12-0 on the season.The first period of both games ended with OSU trailing 2-1, and both were close, low-shot affairs dominated by special teams play. OSU was on the penalty kill 11 times on the weekend, including the final 10 minutes of the third period on Saturday. Eventually, frustration boiled over and OSU took a combined 27 minutes in penalties.“Just the team being undisciplined, and that’s not how I run my team, so we’ve got to show more discipline, even when you’re frustrated,” coach Jenny Potter said. “Being undisciplined definitely hurts your team.”Game notesOn Friday, OSU fell 4-2 despite outshooting the Bulldogs 25-23. Senior forward Melani Moylan scored her first goal of the season just three minutes into the game, but Minnesota Duluth would tie it at 1-1 six minutes later off of junior Ashleigh Brykaliuk’s ninth goal of the season.Sophomore Lauren Spring would score for OSU in the period’s closing minute to give the Buckeyes a 2-1 lead after the first.The second period was mostly quiet for both teams except for Minnesota Duluth’s game-tying goal at 2:36 into the frame. Brykaliuk assisted on sophomore Catherine Daoust’s fourth goal of the season.The third period would remain tied until the eighth minute, when Brykaliuk recorded her third point of the game, an assist on junior Sidney Morin’s first goal of the season. With redshirt freshman goaltender Alex LaMere on the bench in favor of a sixth attacker, Brykaliuk would record her second goal and fourth point of the game, as Minnesota Duluth dashed OSU’s hopes of a comeback.On Saturday, with redshirt senior Stacy Danczak now starting in goal, Minnesota Duluth scored first from senior Michela Cava’s ninth goal of the season. Junior forward Claudia Kepler would score to tie it at 1-1 for OSU.“I don’t know how the puck got down low but (Moylan) had it pinned against the boards,” Kepler said. “I kind of pulled it from her feet and took it around the goalie and put it over her shoulder.”After scoring just four goals in two games, the team was not satisfied with the number of chances it generated against Minnesota Duluth.“Not really, we didn’t create enough,” junior defender Alexa Ranahan said. “But I know the girls worked as hard as we can, and I’m proud of the team.”After the game, OSU sounded as if it plans to work on the offense in the next three weeks before its first game of the 2016 calendar year.“Obviously, it doesn’t take too many chances, you got to bury the ones you get,” Potter said.However, Potter was sure to credit her alma mater for its performance in limiting the Buckeyes’ attack in the two games.“I think they competed all weekend,” she said. “It’s just a couple of breakdowns, so we’ve got to regroup and move forward.”Despite the team’s level of competition, the weekend was defined by the final 10 minutes of the third period. While on the power play with just over eight minutes remaining in the game, freshman defender Lauren Boyle was called for interference. Before the resumption of play, freshman forward Maddy Field was assessed a 10-minute misconduct penalty.With a four-to-three man advantage, senior defender Cara Zubko was given a five-minute penalty for contact to the head of an opponent and was assessed a game misconduct penalty, ejecting her from the contest. “It was definitely chaotic,” Ranahan said. “It’s unfortunate that penalties ruined the momentum of the period. It’s hard as a player having so many stops, it’s frustrating, but that’s hockey.”With three skaters in the penalty box and one in the dressing room, Minnesota Duluth was able to score its fifth goal of the game with six minutes remaining, leaving a bad taste in the mouth of the skaters.“Penalties at the end don’t help,” Kepler said. “Whether we agree with them or not, it makes it way harder to come back and win hockey games.”OSU will be off until Jan. 2, when it welcomes Penn State to Columbus for two games. Puck is scheduled to drop at 2:07 p.m. on Jan. 2, as well as the next day. Stat broadcastOSU scored first on Friday for the first time in three weeks, going back to the first period of its Nov. 20 game against St. Cloud State.In addition to her first goal of the season, Moylan also recorded her first assist of the season on Kepler’s first-period goal.With Danczak in goal, LaMere watched the game from the bench, ending her games-started streak at 10.With two assists on Friday, Boyle has 10 points so far this season, moving her into a three-way tie for third. read more

Udonis Haslem treats local students to Walmart shopping spree

first_imgFORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) – Some very special South Florida children spent part of their holiday shopping and celebrating with the Miami Heat.Udonis Haslem and his foundation held their annual Christmas Program for Exceptional Students, Saturday.The young participants were treated to a shopping spree at a Walmart in Fort Lauderdale.Haslem said this is one way he can give back to the community that’s given so much to him.“I have an opportunity to interact with a lot of these kids, have an opportunity to have a relationship with a lot of these kid’s parents,” he said. “For me, it’s the perfect opportunity to be in a situation to be able to give back to the community and influence and impact other people’s lives throughout the holidays. That’s how I was raised, that’s how my family brought me up, and that’s what we do.”Each child received a backpack filled with goodies and a $200 gift card.After their shopping spree, they went to have lunch at an Aventura restaurant owned by Haslem and Dwyane Wade.

Juneau loses boundary appeal to Petersburg

first_img“I don’t necessarily consider it a loss. … We thought the law stood for something that needed clarification, and the court has now clarified. … “I think it really solidifies that it’s the commission’s decision, how to frame the question in making a boundary determination.”Since Mead is the City and Borough of Juneau’s staff attorney, fighting the case carried only incidental expenses. The Alaska Supreme Court has settled a boundary dispute between Juneau and Petersburg affecting about 1,500 square miles of Southeast. Under the decision the court issued Friday (Dec. 4), Petersburg Borough boundaries will stand as they are, now that Juneau has lost its last legal challenge on the matter.Download AudioPetersburg Mayor Mark Jensen says his borough was ready for the decision.“I think it’s good news, you know? Definitely for Petersburg. We’ve already been moving ahead like that was in our borough, so I’m glad to hear that it is.”The previously contested land is almost completely uninhabited national forest – an old estimate puts the population at one. Still, local control and some revenue were at stake.Petersburg Borough Manager Stephen Giesbrecht says the annexed land boosts state revenue sharing and some federal payments.“If the borough formation would not have happened, our financial situation here in the borough would have been a lot different than it is today. We’re like everybody else. We’re having to look for things to cut. But because of the borough formation, we’re not having to do it in ways that other communities have done.”Petersburg fisherman are responsible for more than 90 percent of the commercial haul from the area; Juneau businesses and residents own most of the private land.Goldbelt, Inc., Juneau’s urban Native corporation, owns about 30,000 acres in the annexed area around Hobart Bay. Since logging ended there in 1999, Goldbelt has explored turning it into a cruise ship destination, and planted 80,000 geoduck seed for an experimental aquaculture operation. Goldbelt anticipates Hobart Bay geoduck will be harvest-ready beginning around 2023, according to its last annual report.Attorney Amy Mead argued the case for Juneau before the Supreme Court in June. She says it was a worthwhile fight.last_img read more

Study finds pigeons use bodies to turn rather than wing force

first_img © 2011 PhysOrg.com Explore further Intuitively, it might seem, at least to humans who have no natural wings of course, that to turn, especially when sharp angles are involved, that flailing the wing harder or faster that is opposite the turn would be the most natural way to proceed. After all, that’s the approach us humans would use in water for instance, in trying to turn quickly. But that’s not how birds operate, at least not pigeons. Ros and his team set up nine high-speed synchronized cameras in a hall that had a ninety degree turn in the middle of it. They then marked a pigeon in sixteen places to track just exactly how each body part moved as it flew. They then set the bird to flying the hallway, capturing every detail and noting precisely what goes on with its body, wings, and tail as it turns. Surprisingly, it turned out that the pigeon neither flapped faster or harder, opting instead to simply turn or roll its body to adjust for the turn and allowing its wings to flap as they would were the bird heading straight. Once through the turn, the bird then readjusted its body to enable straight ahead flight.While all this may not seem all that remarkable, after all, the pigeons have likely been turning in flight for more years than we have held interest in how they do so, the observations may provide important information for people wishing to improve on clunky old human flight, or more specifically, when trying to build drones that can fly better than what is available today.It’s not hard to imagine the difference. Sending a drone down a narrow hall where it must negotiate a ninety degree turn is quite frankly, impossible at this point, though a helicopter, which perhaps not coincidently turns in ways very similar to the pigeon, could do it with ease. This is because it can slow down without losing lift. But if the drone could be made to maneuver its body as it turns, perhaps then it could perform maneuvers that the common pigeon takes for granted. Pigeon Citation: Study finds pigeons use bodies to turn rather than wing force (2011, November 29) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-11-pigeons-bodies-wing.html More information: Pigeons steer like helicopters and generate down- and upstroke lift during low speed turns, PNAS, Published online before print November 28, 2011, doi: 10.1073/pnas.1107519108AbstractTurning is crucial for animals, particularly during predator–prey interactions and to avoid obstacles. For flying animals, turning consists of changes in (i) flight trajectory, or path of travel, and (ii) body orientation, or 3D angular position. Changes in flight trajectory can only be achieved by modulating aerodynamic forces relative to gravity. How birds coordinate aerodynamic force production relative to changes in body orientation during turns is key to understanding the control strategies used in avian maneuvering flight. We hypothesized that pigeons produce aerodynamic forces in a uniform direction relative to their bodies, requiring changes in body orientation to redirect those forces to turn. Using detailed 3D kinematics and body mass distributions, we examined net aerodynamic forces and body orientations in slowly flying pigeons (Columba livia) executing level 90° turns. The net aerodynamic force averaged over the downstroke was maintained in a fixed direction relative to the body throughout the turn, even though the body orientation of the birds varied substantially. Early in the turn, changes in body orientation primarily redirected the downstroke aerodynamic force, affecting the bird’s flight trajectory. Subsequently, the pigeon mainly reacquired the body orientation used in forward flight without affecting its flight trajectory. Surprisingly, the pigeon’s upstroke generated aerodynamic forces that were approximately 50% of those generated during the downstroke, nearly matching the relative upstroke forces produced by hummingbirds. Thus, pigeons achieve low speed turns much like helicopters, by using whole-body rotations to alter the direction of aerodynamic force production to change their flight trajectory.center_img Journal information: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PhysOrg.com) — In a rather surprising turn of events, it appears pigeons use their body to make sharp turns, rather than stronger wing strokes when flying. This bit of news comes from Ivo Ros of Harvard University and his colleagues who have been studying the bird’s flight skills with high speed cameras. They have published their results in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Birds ‘flap run’ instead if flying over obstacles to save energy This document is subject to copyright.

it is inching towards a more democratic system The Thein Sein governments quick-wittedness in sensing the implications of the Arab Spring and the rising sensitivities of ordinary Myanmarese towards China seem to have played a key role in that One may argue that the government has also realised the flipside of over-dependence on China This seems to have sufficiently motivated it to reach out to the international community and domestic dissidents The Westled by the UShas also been quick in receiving the frail yet positive signals from Naypyidaw Realising the ineffectiveness of sanctions and isolationthe West is now responding to Thein Seins moves Considering the widening and deepening nature of reformsit is difficult to argue that Myanmar will remain the same old system Taking a quantum leap towards an Indian style of fully functional democracy is a second possible roadbut a long and winding onefor Myanmar This seems a little too ambitiousconsidering that military still rules the roost Coupled with factors such as Myanmars limited exposure to democracy and ethnic divisionsthis seems farther from reach as of now International intervention is neither desired nor advisable as only reforms from within the system can ensure a peaceful transition that is in the best interest of all domestic and international stakeholdersincluding India Thirdand perhaps a more predictable way for Myanmarat least in the short runis a tightly controlled democratic system a halfway house between democracy and authoritarian rulewhich has been witnessed in Southeast Asia before Indonesia and Thailand took years to give democratic rights to their peoples Particularly interesting is Indonesia which hasover the yearsevolved in a phased manner into a democratic system Though crystal-gazing Myanmars future is quite difficult at this stagea variant of managed democracy with Myanmarese features seems on the cards Power-sharing between Aung San Suu Kyi and Thein Sein will ensure such a mechanism Howeverthere are no two views on the point that Suu Kyi will remain one of the most important reference points for democracy in the near future A number of challenges lie ahead for Myanmar Indications are that US will not lift sanctions before the by-elections slated for April Thereforethe government has to ensure that the domestic reform process and rapprochement with the international community move ahead Abject povertyrampant corruptionethnic divisionsmiserable educational and health conditions of millions of its people pose enormous challenges to the government It also has to take bigger steps to improve the human rights record of the country Legal reforms and greater freedom to media are linked to such an agenda The government is now working on doing away with political censorship as a follow-up step to the revoking of ban on news websites The biggest challengehoweverlies in peaceful transition and national reconciliation in managing the masses and bringing the ethnic minorities back to the mainstream All the stakeholdersthe governmentthe militarySuu Kyi and her party membersethnic leaders and the international community have to develop a greater mutual

Kejriwal has directed Health Minister Satyendar Jain to submit an action plan within a week on providing “life support systems for critical patients” in government hospitals The order comes in the wake of a newborn child’s death last week who was denied admission at four government hospitals due to unavailability of critical care beds with ventilator facilities The directions were issued after it was brought to the notice of the Delhi High Court that the child had died in Jagpravesh Government Hospital within 15 hours of being born as the family could not find a bed fitted with a ventilator Kejriwal also directed the health minister to ensure that live data of functional critical care facilities at hospitals be made available to patients seeking treatment He also asked Jain to include in the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) that a hospital where a critical patient is first brought for admission will ensure that the patient gets “immediate life saving care” “The health minister has been asked to place the action plan before the CM by the month-end to ensure that critical patients requiring life support do not have to run around from hospital to hospital” a senior government official said “The CM has further directed that from now when a patient in a critical condition is brought in and the hospital lacks life-saving facilities or non-availability of beds then it will be the duty of that hospital to find out which other hospital has such a facility… It should be part of the SOP that the patient is sent to that hospital without any delay” a statement from the CM’s office said The baby born on September 20 was diagnosed with birth asphyxia and needed immediate ventilator support The HC issued notices to the Centre Health Ministry Delhi government and the three

For one former judges like Ajit Shah have argued that the Supreme Court has applied inconsistent criteria in its delivery of the death sentence and often erred in its understanding of precedent Even the judges who heard Memon’s clemency appeal after all were divided on whether he deserved it Then judges’ understanding of what constitutes a death penalty crime has varied widely Rabindra Pal who burned alive Graham Staines and his two infant sons was for example given a life sentence after judges held that the missionary’s proselytising was itself a mitigating circumstance Bias also stains the dispensation of the death penalty: of 385 prisoners handed the sentence between June 2013 and January 2015 three quarters belonged to economically or socially vulnerable communities WATCH VIDEO The great philosopher Moshe ben Maimon argued that to execute anyone on less than complete certainty of their guilt would reduce justice “to the judge’s caprice” That caprice is precisely what the death penalty is everywhere it is in effect In the United States over 145 people sentenced to death since 1939 have been released after new evidence emerged of their innocence The tide of acquittals of prisoners on death row has swelled as genetic science improves Nor does the death penalty serve any social purpose beyond vengeance The United States’ National Academy of Sciences in the most thoroughgoing meta-study to date has shown there is no correlation between the death penalty and violent crime Israel — beset like India by terrorism — hasn’t executed anyone since 1962 Its first application of the sentence was in the case of Meir Tobianski a soldier executed on treason charges in 1948 — and established a year later to have been innocent Though the US and China retain the death penalty the global trend is 58 for to 140 against Today is the right day for India to honour the liberal heritage on which great nations are built and take a step towards joining the right side of this divide For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related News but the operator heard her out, India are now scheduled to play Sri Lanka in three Tests, 35,and wants India and ASEAN to take proactive measures to ensure a democratic transition.along with graffiti artist Waak.
