Rich poor countries similar in level of womens political involvement UN report

The report compiled by the UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), states that the number of women in key decision-making positions is the only indicator that does not appear to be affected by national poverty. Some of the world’s richest countries such as the United States, France and Japan – where women’s share of parliamentary seats range between 10 to 12 per cent – lag behind 13 developing countries in sub-Saharan Africa, a region experiencing the greatest poverty in the world.”There is much more to be done to ensure that women are accepted as equal partners in key decision-making processes. Especially in post-conflict situations – where new constitutions and legislative structures are being created – it is critical that women are present at the peace table and in post-war policy-making,” UNIFEM Executive Director Noeleen Heyzer said.The report, “Progress of the World’s Women 2002: Volume 2: Gender Equality and the Millennium Development Goals,” attributes the increase in women’s share of parliamentary seats to political measures in several countries, where quotas were legislated or adopted on a voluntary basis to meet the 30 per cent representation agreed on at numerous international conferences in the last decade.”Real progress towards gender equality will be seen when women have more say in the decisions that affect their lives,” Ms. Heyzer stated in support of the need for women’s presence in political decision-making positions.There have been encouraging signs of such improvement in women’s legislative representation in the last two years, unlike in education, literacy and employment where progress has been slow, the report says. Women are still, however, largely absent from parliaments, accounting for only about 14 per cent of members in 2002, UNIFEM said.”Progress 2002″ assesses improvements made towards women’s empowerment within the context of the Millennium Development Goals, a set of eight goals created by the international community in 2000 to focus global efforts to end poverty, hunger and inequality. One of the key goals is the promotion of gender equality. read more

UN will maintain pressure on Sudan until the commitments are met –

The United Nations will keep up the pressure on the Sudanese Government until it meets its commitments to disarm the militias responsible for deadly attacks in the troubled Darfur region and to restore security so that the estimated 1.2 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) feel it is safe to return home, Secretary-General Kofi Annan said today. While there has been progress on humanitarian access to remote Darfur, Khartoum has “much more” to do on improving security for the IDPs who have gathered in over 100 makeshift camps across the region, Mr. Annan told reporters after briefing the Security Council on his recent trip to Africa. The Secretary-General stressed that last week’s Council resolution required the Sudanese authorities to do no more than meet the pledges it has already made. “They should be able to take steps to calm the situation, to stop the attacks, to protect the people and continue the disarmament,” he said. “And there should be no confusion or no excuses,” he warned. The Council gave the Government 30 days to show it was taking action on the commitments or face potential sanctions. Mr. Annan said, “The Council made it clear that if they fail to perform there will be consequences, and I hope that, if they do fail to perform, all the Council Members will be ready to act.” He also said the African Union (AU) was expanding the size of the force it was sending to Darfur to monitor the crisis. This, he said, was having “a positive impact” on dissuading the Janjaweed militias and others from further attacks on civilians. Responding to questions, he said a large public protest in Khartoum today against the UN was not unexpected. “Sometimes governments use demonstrations to put pressure on the UN and to send a message to the international community.” At the same time, he cautioned, the Sudanese Government “also has to be aware that it has the responsibility for the protection of the UN staff and the UN facilities.” Earlier, Jan Pronk, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Sudan, told UN Radio that while today’s demonstration in Khartoum was not violent, it was “not making life easy” for UN staff in Sudan. He said security in the IDP camps had generally improved, apart from a few incidents, but conditions were more dangerous outside the camps. Mr. Pronk, who held talks this week with senior Sudanese officials, said he had asked them to address this problem so that people felt safe when they go to fetch water and firewood. The envoy said the political focus was now on reviving peace talks between the Sudanese Government and two Darfur rebel groups, expected to resume later this month. Now that Sudan has lifted previous obstacles to access for aid workers and relief supplies, the international community must make available more funding, staff and supplies to stave off a humanitarian disaster, he said. Aside from the large number of IDPs, about 200,000 people now live as refugees in neighbouring Chad because of the Janjaweed attacks and the fighting between the rebels and Government forces. read more

Competition to find HS2 train builder launched

first_imgThe search for a company to design, build and maintain high speed trains for HS2 has been launched.Up to 60 trains will be needed to transport passengers at around 225 mph.The contract, which is worth £2.75 billion, will be awarded in 2019.Advance warning about the start of the bidding process was published on Friday by HS2 Ltd, the organisation responsible for developing the £55.7 billion project.Transport Secretary Chris Grayling described the search for a train manufacturer as “a major step” towards Britain getting a new railway which will carry more than 300,000 people each day. Construction work on phase one of HS2 from London to Birmingham will start in the spring, subject to its parliamentary bill getting royal assent in the coming weeks.Phase one is due to open in December 2026, with a second Y-shaped phase launching in two stages.Phase 2a from the West Midlands to Crewe will open in 2027 and phase 2b, from Crewe to Manchester and from the West Midlands to Leeds, South Yorkshire and the East Midlands, will begin operation in 2033. Mr Grayling said building and maintaining the trains will be a “great opportunity for British-based businesses and suppliers” with the creation of hundreds of jobs.He added: “We have held discussions with UK suppliers to make sure they are in the best possible position to win contracts.”HS2 Ltd’s managing director of railway operations, Chris Rayner, said: “We are looking for a supplier who is capable of delivering and maintaining some of the world’s most advanced rolling stock, with designs putting the passenger at their heart to ensure seamless, accessible, fast and reliable journeys.”center_img Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

SpiderNick With Great Power Comes a Lovable Dirtbag

first_img The newest Sony Animation project Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse dropped a new trailer, and it blew pretty much everyone who saw it away. There’s so much to discuss, and dissect from a 2:20 trailer that it would be easy to overlook one of the most important things that the trailer taught us:Peter Parker is Nick Miller.Now, yes, Jake Johnson voices Peter Parker in the new animated film, and he also played Nick Miller on New Girl. You may think that’s all that means. This one guy? He had both roles. And sure, you could stop there, if you really wanted to miss the big picture. But instead, I offer up the idea that, really:Nick Miller is Peter Parker.Sure, Nick Miller didn’t get bitten by a radioactive spider and gain superpowers. He was never an Avenger. Nick does not have a spider-sense, something easily provable by how often he has been hit in the face. He never fought costumed crime, though, I contend he very well may have fought off someone he thought was doing something bad while one, or both, parties involved wore a costume.For his part, Peter Parker has yet to be depicted as having a drinking problem.But then you start looking at them closer and have to wonder. Aren’t we shown, often, how Peter never quite lives up to his potential? That old Parker luck, we’re told, with things going wrong even though they’ve gone right. A brilliant scientist who spent most of his life as a photographer just trying to make ends meet.Let’s not forget that he made most of his money taking pictures of himself and selling them under false pretenses, to boot. Peter Parker is, can we be honest here? A bit of a dirtbag. That in no way diminishes his heroics, or good heart. But he’s a schlub.God help us all if we can’t agree that Nick Miller is the King of all Semi-Dirtbag Schlubs.He passed the bar exam just to prove that he could, and then became a bartender anyway because he enjoyed it, and it was easier. It was truer to who he was. Much like, say, Peter not becoming Tony Stark or Reed Richards, but taking pictures all day of his own ass to sell to a boss he didn’t like.They both shun the higher trappings of what they might consider fancy, choosing instead, a simpler life overall to explore the core of who they are. And by “explore” I mean “mostly ignore and drift through life doing a decent enough job of it thanks to a wide support system of friends.”They both mean well. Both Peter and Nick want to achieve greatness but think they aren’t quite worthy of it, despite the quiet belief of their families and friends.And about their friends: Peter has Mary Jane, Nick has Jess. Early on Peter has friends such as Harry Osborn, the son of his greatest enemy, and Flash Thompson his childhood bully. Nick has Winston and Schmidt. Do they line up perfectly? Of course not, but if you have a few beers, squint, and eat ramen because it’s all you can afford, you can see it.Let’s take some basic facts of each character and see which character they refer to:Instead of a wallet, uses a plastic bag to hold money and ID – Sure it’s Nick, but do you think Peter wouldn’t do that?Has to borrow a friend’s clothes when leaving their place after a visit and gets mocked on the way home – Yeah Peter borrowed a Fantastic Four outfit (and added a paper bag as a mask), once, but do you think Nick hasn’t done that?Eventually, totally accidently, achieved a major life goal, and fulfilled their potential – Nick didn’t mean for the Pepperwood Chronicles to become a giant YA hit. But it happened and changed his life for the better, going on book tours and becoming the author we knew he could be as far as back as his writing Z is for Zombie (it had a word search but there weren’t words to find, you dummy). Peter found his body inhabited by Doc Oct, and when he came back into possession of it he realized that he had founded Parker Industries and was using his genius to do the things he could’ve done years ago.That potential was rocky – Peter lost his company. Nick, when we last see him, doesn’t want to do more Pepperwood, but the new stuff he wants to do are books his publisher doesn’t want. We don’t know for sure how Nick’s story would resolve there, but it isn’t a stretch to imagine the end of the Miller Writing Career.But they both survive, and we are sure, will thrive in their own ways. That’s the core of both of them. Life will knock them about, continuously, but in the end you can’t keep either of them down because they will find the peace and joy in whatever version of their lives they live.They’re heroes because even when it looks like they are standing still, they are still moving forward, even if that movement is in directions and actions that don’t make clear, rational, sense to most people.Nick Miller is Peter Parker.Peter Parker is Nick Miller.And at long last we can see it, and hear it, and embrace it.After all, what is great power coming with great responsibility if it isn’t stopping Winston from going too far with a prank, or helping Schmidt through depression by pretending to be Michael Keaton in email? Stay on target Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.center_img Jake Gyllenhaal Avoids Questions About Mysterio in Sinister SixSony Pictures CEO Says ‘Door Is Closed’ for Now on Spider-Man Split last_img read more

New Government of Cayman Islands Decided

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppCayman Islands, May 26, 2017 – George Town – Following Wednesday’s election which saw the independent candidates winning most of the seats, the new government of The Cayman Islands has finally been decided.Leader of the People’s Progressive Movement, the Hon. Alden McLaughlin will lead the government for another 4 years. Hon. McKeeva Bush will be the Speaker of the House and Mr. Bernie Bush will be the Deputy Speaker. Following a meeting with both parties, the PPM and the CDP have agreed to work together in the interest of national unity.Meanwhile, the Commonwealth Observer team that monitored the recent general election says the country “amply met the international standard” for democratic and transparent elections.The group led by Steve Rodan, president of Tynwald in the Isle of Man, says the outcome of Wednesday’s general election reflected the “will of the people”.“Cayman can feel confident in its processes … whether or not they are pleased with the results.” The six member observer team spent the week checking everything from elections advertising, to news coverage, to ballot counting and voter registration.According to Rodan, legal principles of freedom of expression, freedom of movement and freedom of assembly were all respected.He also commended the elections office staff and Supervisor Wesley Howell for their “meticulous attention to detail.”Equality of voting principles was met by the adoption of the “one man, one vote” procedure during the 2017 general election, according to elections observers.However, he said that two voting districts on Grand Cayman “depart from the norm” when it comes to the size of the voting districts.The team noted that the districts of East End and North Side, both with about 700 voters apiece, are significantly smaller than 1,186 average voters in the remainder of Grand Cayman’s other 15 voting districts.There were a few other governance-related issues raised by the elections observers in their preliminary report – these included unfair requirements for voters and candidates’ residence in the Cayman Islands prior to an election being held, and some concern about the state of campaign finance reporting prior to elections.#magneticmedianews#2017caymanelections Related Items:#2017caymanelections, #magneticmedianews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

PFAS Update Blood Tests Show Elevated Levels of Contaminants in PhiladelphiaArea Residents

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR Blood testing of a sample of residents living outside of Philadelphia revealed a significantly higher presence of PFAS chemicals linked to historical use of firefighting foam at two closed bases — Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Willow Grove and Naval Air Warfare Center Warminster — than the general population. The state Department of Health randomly selected 235 residents in Horsham, Warminster and Warrington Township for testing, reported the Inquirer. Local residents had more than double the national average for levels of PFOS in their blood, and more than 1.5 times the national average for levels of PFOA. The average for one type of PFAS chemical, PFHxS, in the Philadelphia-area residents sampled was more than five times the national average. … Residents of Newburgh, N.Y., urged the military to take concrete action to halt discharges of contaminated wastewater from Stewart Air National Guard Base, during a public meeting with DOD and Air Force officials held earlier this month. The city shut down its primary water supply after PFAS contamination was discovered. The military has been following the federally prescribed cleanup process but faces spending restrictions because Stewart is not an active-duty base and is located on state-owned land, said Robert McMahon, assistant secretary of defense for sustainment. He and John Henderson, assistant secretary of the Air Force for installations, environment and energy, said the federal government is committed to cleaning up the contamination, reported the Times Herald-Record. “We’re in this for the long haul,” McMahon said.Photo courtesy of U.S. Air Forcelast_img read more

FBI Searching for Mystery Vandal Who Keeps Cutting Internet Cables

first_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global 2 min read This story originally appeared on Fortune Magazine The FBI is investigating a mysterious string of attacks on fiber optic cables in the San Francisco Bay area, including one that severely disrupted Internet service at numerous businesses and residential buildings Tuesday morning.At least 11 physical attacks on these cables have occurred in at least 10 Bay area cities — such as Fremont, Berkeley, San Jose, and Walnut Creek — over the last year, dating back to at least July 6, 2014, FBI Special Agent Greg Wuthrich told USA Today. “When it affects multiple companies and cities, it does become disturbing,” Wuthrich said. “We definitely need the public’s assistance.”The latest attack, which happened at 4:20 a.m. PT on Tuesday, was particularly alarming as it appeared to have been a concerted strike on three Internet cables belonging to wholesalers Level 3 and Zayo. The result was a huge outage for those living in and around Sacramento for a good part of the day. According to Wave Broadband, an Internet provider to the area, service was restored by 11:40 p.m. on Tuesday evening.The vandalism brings up concerns about the security of the country’s existing Internet infrastructure. Cutting these lines requires tools that penetrate a tough outer layer. According to Wuthrich, the acts happened in remote areas unmonitored by cameras, and perhaps by vandals dressed as utility workers who have accessed the underground vaults containing the cables. “Different companies have thousands of these vaults,” Wuthrich said in a separate LA Times report.The area has been a hotbed for such attacks over recent years. Fiber-optic cables at four California locations were clipped on April 9, 2009, affecting more than 50,000 people in Santa Clara, Santa Cruz and San Benito counties, according to The San Francisco Chronicle. On April 16, 2013, suspects cut cables and opened fire on electrical transformers outside San Jose, causing more than $15 million in damage.

US Bank Earnings Rise on Stronger Lending

first_img August 28, 2014 467 Views FDIC Profits 2014-08-28 Scott_Morgan U.S. Bank Earnings Rise on Stronger Lending in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Government, Headlines, Newscenter_img A report released Thursday by FDIC showed that federally insured institutions earned $40.2 billion and increased loan and lease balances by $178.5 billion (to $8.1 trillion) in the second quarter.The boost in lending was the largest quarterly increase since the fourth quarter of 2007.FDIC attributed the rise in earnings to a nearly $2 billion drop in loan-loss provisions and a $1.5 billion decline in noninterest expenses.”We also saw a large decline in the number of problem banks,” said the agency’s chairman, Martin Gruenberg.According to the report, the number of problem banks fell for the 13th consecutive quarter. With 354 problem banks, there are now 60 percent fewer than there were at the height of the financial crisis.Fewer banks are also failing. Seven FDIC-insured institutions failed in the second quarter, compared to 12 in the second quarter of 2013, the report stated. “However, challenges remain,” Gruenberg said.One of those challenges is that industry revenue has been under pressure from narrow net-interest margins and less mortgage-related income. In other words, banks are continuing to have trouble bolstering revenues in an economy defied by low interest rates.Somewhat related, higher-risk loans to leveraged commercial borrowers are on the rise, a phenomenon that has raised Gruenberg’s concern. Gruenberg also is concerned about interest-rate risk, as more banks are extending asset maturities.”These issues are matters of ongoing supervisory attention,” Gruenberg said. “Nonetheless, on balance, results from the second quarter reflect a stronger banking industry and stronger community banks.”Chief among the good news is a 3 percent rise in commercial and industrial and auto loans, as well as in credit card balances.  Residential mortgage loans also rose, by 1.2 percent in the second quarter.Still, while encouraging, the pace was not good enough to make 2014 a more profitable year for banks overall. According to the report, when combined with Q1 numbers, 2014’s first half saw net income down 1.4 percent compared to the first half of 2013. Sharelast_img read more

Gas reserves to be put up for sale update 2 adds Noble

first_imgUS-based Noble Energy will declare gas reserves discovered offshore Cyprus commercially viable in the next few weeks, the government said on Tuesday.Speaking after a meeting between President Nicos Anastasiades and Noble Energy senior vice president Keith Elliot, Energy Minister Giorgos Lakkotrypis said the company intended to submit a plan for the development of the Aphrodite reserve, and will declare it commercially viable within the next few weeks.“These two events are very important for Cyprus, because it is the first time that we will move from exploration to hydrocarbon development and exploitation as a country,” the minister said.“There is still a long way to go, especially as regards commercial agreements that need to be made, but surely the submission of a development plan and declaring commerciality of the reserve would be a very important event, a step forward for our country,” Lakkotrypis said.“Declaring commerciality sends the message to foreign buyers that we have natural gas for sale. This means that it can be for export or used in Cyprus, or a combination, which is our intention.”According to Noble Energy, their ‘Aphrodite’ play has proven reserves of between 3.6 and 6 tcf. It’s understood, however, that privately the Americans have narrowed down the quantities to around 3.1 tcf, based on a 90 per cent probability.Elliot told reporters after the meeting that the effort “is part of bringing the Aphrodite discovery to the next phase of exploitation, it is something that we have been looking forward to for some time now and it is a tremendous opportunity that we hope will bring prosperity to both the people of Cyprus and the government of Cyprus, as well as the other countries in the region.”You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoIcePopMan Notices A Strange Hole In This Lake, So He Gets A Drone, Flies It Inside And Captures ThisIcePopUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementCardiologist: This Is What Happens To Your Body When You Eat GlutenGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
