The floods, which began in late July, are the worst disaster in living memory for the South Asian nation, resulting in the death of more than 1,000 people and leaving millions homeless. “This is unprecedented. Nobody was prepared for such a level of destruction and for such difficult conditions for the people affected,” UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres said after a two-day visit to the flood-affected areas. “Everybody is doing their best, but the best everyone is doing cannot match the dramatic needs that we are facing,” he stated, appealing to the international community for “a stronger engagement and stronger support for us all to do better and to do more.”Mr. Guterres visited flood-affected Afghan refugees and Pakistani villagers in the northwest province of Khyber Pakhtunkwa (KPK), one of the worst-hit areas.The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) estimates that over 4.3 million people in the province are affected by floods and over 192,000 homes have been destroyed or damaged. “A lot of progress has been made, but the way ahead is still long,” said Ahmed Warsame, head of the provincial sub-office of the UN refugee agency, known as UNHCR. “We need to ensure that we meet the needs of all flood-affected communities and reach out to those most vulnerable to ensure they have access to humanitarian assistance.”Nearly 1.7 million people in the province have received access to clean drinking water thanks to the efforts of UN agencies and their partners. Over 1 million people have received emergency shelter in the form of tents and tarpaulins, and more than 1.2 million have essential medicines. Mr. Guterres met Afghan refugee elders in the devastated Azakheil refugee settlement in KPK’s Nowshera district, which once housed more than 23,000 refugees but is now completely destroyed, according to UNHCR.Azakheil is one of 16 Afghan refugee villages across Pakistan to be destroyed or badly damaged in the floods. The High Commissioner told the elders he had been reassured by senior Pakistani officials that the flood-displaced Afghan refugees would not be forced to repatriate. In addition, he visited the village of Khat Karoona Saidabad, which lies between the Swat and Jinda rivers in Charsadda district. The small community of 56 families was badly hit by the floods; not a single house remains untouched and most are totally destroyed.UN agencies and their partners received 67 per cent of the nearly $460 million sought as part of the initial Pakistan flood response plan to carry out relief efforts. A revised plan will be launched tomorrow in New York.To date, donors have provided about half of the $120 million that UNHCR appealed for in August. “My hope is that the international community will understand the needs and fully correspond to the dramatic situation,” said Mr. Guterres. 16 September 2010As the United Nations prepares to launch a revised appeal for funds to tackle Pakistan’s devastating flood crisis, the world body’s top refugee official today urged the international community to provide stronger support for the victims of the disaster.
The lending of pregnant cows to neighbours who have fallen on hard times, a tradition among herdsman in Niger, has been added to a list of cultural practices around the world that best contribute to sustainable development, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) announced today. The jury of the Harmony List, an initiative of UNESCO and a group dedicated to socially responsible investment, cited the Wodaabe people’s tradition of “habbanae” as a cultural practice that significantly contributes to improving quality of life, and integrates its culture into social, environmental and economic development. According to habbanae (which is pronounced ha-ba-na-i and means “bond” in the Peul language), when a herdsman loses his herd each member of the community lends him a pregnant young cow to be kept for three years. “This tradition is more than a contract designed to help people in need, it also helps consolidate the life of the community as a whole by strengthening the bond among its members,” UNESCO said. The Harmony List was born in 2004 of a partnership between UNESCO’s International Fund for the Promotion of Culture and the Crédit Agricole Group, both of which provide jury members who pre-select up to 10 cultural practices from all regions of the world, out of which at least one is inscribed on the Harmony List. In 2004, Bedouin hospitality of the Middle East and Cree bush schools of northern Canada were honoured. The practice chosen for 2005 was the traditional Chinese medicine of the Miao community in Guizhou Province, China. This year, the jury also recognized the “Story-Tellers Grandmothers Programme” of Argentina. Launched five years ago by the Mempo Giardinelli Foundation, it mobilizes senior citizens to read stories to children, and contributes to dialogue between generations, UNESCO said.

If you’re an American they don’t come after you until you spend $800.”Dade believed the best case scenario is that the deal stays largely unchanged. A worst case scenario is that the U.S. goes off the rails or Mexico walks and Canada gets caught in the middle.
Extensive research has proven that even before we open our mouth and start talking to people, we are being assessed and measured within the first three seconds of eye contact. Then we spend the next two minutes trying to verify our first impressions. Style influences our level of career advancement, the main reason for the existence of workplace dress codes. “Whether it’s an interview, a corporate meeting, or socialising at a bar, it doesn’t matter,” Angelo explains. “Reality is harsh but in most cases perception touches on reality, which is why what we wear is our first effort to communicate the nature of our personality to others.” It goes without saying that appearances are not everything; and that you have to actually perform well in order to succeed.However, in this competitive world we live in, investing the proper resources into one’s personal presentation – i.e. clothing and grooming – will enhance your ability and chances. At any given time, you may run into a potential client, a future employer, or even ‘the one’. Knowing that their initial impression will be based on how you look, you should always be dressed neatly and appropriately. “You might prefer not to spend too much on something you will wear on special occasions, but you still want to look and feel good about yourself,” Angelo says.“Our own perception of self changes according to the way we look. The better we feel about ourself, the more confident we are in our love life, social and work environment.“Needless to say, the more confident a man is the more successful he becomes.”A well-dressed man in a suit says he is working, he is making things happen, he knows what he wants. “When you have one chance in life to make a serious decision, it’s not the time to take risks. Choose wisely and opt for experience and variety,” Daniel and Angelo agree.“Our varied range of business, formal, dinner and wedding suits will surprise you. Contact us for an appointment and we’ll fit you and your groomsmen with the best choices.”Men’s Suit Warehouse runs several specials throughout the year – keep up to date by following their page on Facebook – www.facebook.com/MensSuitWarehouseThere are two convenient locations in inner Melbourne: – corner of Church and Victoria Streets, Abbotsford VIC 3067: (03) 9428-4151 – 235 Queen Street, Melbourne VIC 3000: (03) 9670-24887* For more information, head to www.menssuitwarehouse.com.au We shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but there is something about a man in a suit – an empowering appeal, which exudes confidence and charm. Whether we like it or not, our clothing has become a means of communication which can somewhat determine our effect on others and the way we are perceived.People choose their style according to the impression they would ideally like to give; to attract similarly-minded individuals.Daniel Mortellaro and Angelo Salerno have always been aware of this, which is why they started their own mobile suit service in Melbourne more than 20 years ago.Their eye for style and love of quality outfits helped them to make a name for themselves at the very beginning, while they were still visiting clients direct at their home or workplace. They became specialists in suiting grooms up and finding the closest options to bespoke outfits for their successful business executive clientele. As business grew and the brand stabilised, the demand became so great that they needed a warehouse.They opened the warehouse doors shortly afterwards to service everyone from one location as well as maintain the direct-to-customer concept for as long as they could.Men’s Suit Warehouse specialises in pure wool suits, various wool blends and menswear accessories, focusing on practicality and versatility as well as affordability.“We are not only servicing Melbourne’s business executive. Men’s Suit Warehouse also caters for grooms and wedding parties who are after dinner, formal and wedding suits,” the duo says.“Due to our large buying power, Men’s Suit Warehouse is able to offer quality suits at more competitive prices, plus, our two stores are located at easy to get to locations in Richmond and Melbourne’s CBD.”Men’s Suit Warehouse was established in 1995, and its team of dressers and experience salesmen now provides grooms and their groomsmen with a choice of more than 600 suits in Melbourne.Variety is something they take pride in. Whatever your preference, from a range of 600 suits, the chances are high that Angelo and Daniel will have just the thing you need.“Men’s Suit Warehouse has a range that caters for everyone’s taste and practical purpose,” Angelo tells Neos Kosmos.“Wearing a suit everyday as a corporate requires a classic wardrobe with variations in tones and colours; pieces that are easy to mix and match that won’t go out of fashion in a few months or wear out fast.“Whatever the occasion is, men who care about the impression they give don’t want to be seen wearing the same suit over and over again, not to mention something that makes us feel uncomfortable.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram
Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享With prices for North Slope crude oil on the rise, companies like ConocoPhillips are beginning to increase investments. Vice President of North Slope Operations and Development, Lisa Bruner presented a ‘rosy’ outlook for the company at a joint Kenai/Soldotna Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday: “I can attribute it to a really fantastic workforce that we have here in Alaska. I have worked for the company all over the globe, and the deep competency levels we have here in Alaska are unparalleled to anything else on the globe.” Company executive vice president Matt Fox calls the results “promising.” The company says it originally planned to drill five wells, including two appraisal wells at Willow. Alaska earned ConocoPhillips $445 million of its $1.14 billion profits during the last quarter of 2017. Alaska was also the most profitable area in the world for ConocoPhillips in 2017, according to a report released by the company. According to a release from the company, three appraisal wells supported a previously announced estimate of at least 300 million barrels of oil at its Willow Discovery leasing area within the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska. Bruner: “If you look at our portfolio going forward we are actually demonstrating the potential for increases in production over time. That’s coming from the continued development of resources that we’ve discovered, and our exploration program has been really active and very successful. We’ve recently announced a discovery called Willow.” On Tuesday, North Slope crude closed at $84.16, according to the Department of Revenue’s latest available price data.
Mayor Ethan Berkowitz poses with students after a unanimous vote to restore the Youth Commission. (Photo: Zachariah Hughes, KSKA)The Anchorage Assembly passed a measure giving law enforcement more options combating the synthetic drug spice. First responders and city officials have called the months-long outbreak “unsustainable,” but few believe the measure is a silver bullet.Anchorage already passed a measures to combat Spice in 2014–aimed at getting shops to selling it over the counter. The new law updates the legal mechanisms for charging spice-related crimes.Police Chief Chris Tolley supports the measure, and said his officers will have discretion in terms of who they go after, but the point is building larger cases instead of focusing on street-level users.“The goal in this, bottom line, is to find out, identify those individual who are distributing and or manufacturing, and putting a stop at the source,” Tolley said after the vote.First responders have played a largely reactive role dealing with health emergencies among spice users. City Prosecutor Seneca Theno told the Assembly that until law enforcement can get more information on where Spice is coming from and who’s selling it there’s relatively little they can do to stop the drug from getting to the streets.The unanimously approved measure means the municipality now treats making, selling, and possessing spice as misdemeanors. Only state law can set felony offenses.The Assembly also adopted measures set to affect area drivers. But there is disagreement about whether the policies are more about safety, or a balanced budget.The municipality is changing how they penalize using a screen device while driving. Basically, texting or navigating an app while your car is in motion–that’s now a ticketable offense, costing $500. The violation used to be a misdemeanor, which is more serious, but meant it usually got dropped before it left the court.It’s not the only infraction that got a change. The Assembly also voted on a wide-ranging update to the fines and fees the city collects–everything from speeding tickets to noise complaints. The fine schedule has been flat since 2001, and the mayor’s administration has said the changes correct for inflation.But the Administration also balanced its budget anticipating that modest bump in revenues. And for the four members of the Assembly that voted against measure, like Bill Evans of South Anchorage, getting money matters mixed with public safety strategies is tricky.“If we put the cart before the horse and we start thinking about revenues first, then it distorts the role of law enforcement,” Evans said during Assembly comments. “I can’t support it because it certainly creates the impression that this is solely a revenue generator to balance our budget for this year.”Elsewhere in the meeting the Assembly voted unanimously to re-instate the Anchorage Youth Commission, a body made up residents aged 14 to 22, designed to advise the mayor’s Administration on youth affairs.The changes to municipal fines go into effect on January 1st.

Last Saturday, Wired interviewed Jeff Weiner, CEO Linkedin, as a part of their 25th Anniversary celebration. He talked about the implications of technology on the modern society saying that technology amplifies tribalism. He also talked about how Linkedin keeps a tab on unconscious bias and why Americans need to develop soft skills to succeed in the coming years. Technology accentuates tribalism When asked about the implications of technology on society, Weiner said, “I think increasingly, we need to proactively ask ourselves far more difficult, challenging questions—provocative questions—about the potential unintended consequences of these technologies. And to the best of our ability, try to understand the implications for society.” This statement is justified as every week there’s a top story about some company going wrong in some direction. We’re talking about the shutting down of Google+, Facebook’s security breach compromising 50M accounts, etc. He further talked about technology dramatically accelerating and reinforcing tribalism at a time when increasingly we need to be coming together as a society. He says, that one of the most important challenges for tech in the next 25 years is to “understand the impact of technology as proactively as possible. And trying to create as much value, and trying to bring people together to the best of our ability.” Unconscious bias on Linkedin He also talked about unconscious bias as an unintended consequence of LinkedIn’s algorithms and initiatives. “It shouldn’t happen that Linkedin reinforces the growing socioeconomic chasms on a global basis, especially here in the United States, by providing more and more opportunity for those that went to the right schools, worked at the right companies, and already have the right networks.” Read more: 20 lessons on bias in machine learning systems by Kate Crawford at NIPS 2017 He elaborated on how LinkedIn is addressing this unconscious bias. Linkedin’s Career Advice Hub was developed with the goal of creating economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce, last year as a response to the unconscious bias that crept into its ‘Ask For a Referral’ program. The Career Advice Hub enables any member of LinkedIn to ask for help, and for any member of LinkedIn to volunteer to help them, and to mentor them. They are also going to create economic opportunities for frontline workers, middle-skilled workers, and blue collar workers. Another focus is on knowledge workers, “who don’t necessarily have the right networks or the right degrees.” Soft skills: The biggest skill gap in the U.S. Jeff also said that the biggest skills gap the United States is not coding skill but soft skills. This includes written communication, oral communication, team building, people leadership, collaboration. “For jobs like sales, sales development, business development, customer service, this is the biggest gap, and it’s counter-intuitive.” Read more: 96% of developers believe developing soft skills is important Soft skills every data scientist should teach their child Soft skills are necessary because AI is still away from being able to replicate and replace human interaction and human touch. “So there’s an incentive for people to develop these skills because those jobs are going to be more stable for a longer period of time.” Before you start thinking about becoming an AI scientist, you need to know how to send email, how to work a spreadsheet, how to do word processing. Jeff says, “Believe it or not, there are broad swaths of the population and the workforce that don’t have those skills. And it turns out if you don’t have these foundational skills if you’re in a position where you need to re-skill for a more advanced technology, it becomes almost prohibitively complex to learn multiple skills at the same time.” Read the full interview on Wired.

By Bejay BrowneHealth Minister Philippos Patsalis visited the Friends hospice in Paphos on Thursday, meeting staff, volunteers and patients.The facility first opened in 2006 and is financed almost completely by fund raising events, income from the charity shops and donations. The hospice provides palliative and respite care for people suffering with life-limiting illnesses, and their families.President of the Friends’ Hospice Foundation, Chris Jones, said the minister told staff and volunteers that their initiative in offering palliative care for the people of the region was “wonderful”.The hospice is housed in a dedicated six bed wing at St. George’s Polyclinic in Paphos.Jones said: “The minister said there is now a system in place to allow charitable organisations offering medical assistance, to apply for government grants and he promised to look favourably on any application made by the hospice.”Jones also said that Patsalis would support any fund raising efforts by the charity, as he said the people of Paphos need the facility. “The minister also noted that he is determined to press ahead with healthcare reforms throughout the island, with the good of patients at the centre of the plans.”Patsalis praised the work undertaken at the hospice as he met staff, doctors and volunteers. He also had a few quiet words, in private, with four patients there.Jones, said that he has already presented the minister with a full breakdown of the hospice’s accounts and assured him that any public funding granted to support the charity would be spent wisely and transparently.“With doctors, surgeons, trained nurses and volunteers on hand day and night, the friends’ hospice is a very cost-effective model of palliative care. The annual figure for maintaining this specialised service is between €250,000 and €300,000.”Since opening in 2006, The Friends’ Hospice has cared for 1,026 patients – 70 per cent of them Cypriot and the others of all different nationalities, said Jones.
