FAO forum approves key plant diversity treaty first budget increase in 8

In a statement released today, FAO said that a major success of the Conference was the approval of an International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture intended to ensure access to plant genetic diversity while taking into consideration the needs of farmers and plant breeders. The treaty is considered a significant step towards guaranteeing the future availability of the diversity of plant genetic resources for food and agriculture on which farmers and breeders depend, as well as a fair and equitable sharing of benefits. At the conclusion of the session on Tuesday, the participating agriculture ministers and senior officials voted a budget totaling $651.8 million for 2002-03 – an increase of $1.8 million over the previous biennium. The Conference also authorized the use of additional amounts up to $50 million from the $95 million expected during the next two years in the form of payments of arrears by the major contributor. At the same time, the forum approved a new scale of contributions that included a reduction of the ceiling of contributions of FAO Member States for the period 2002-03, a decision based on the new scale of contributions adopted by the UN General Assembly. Under the new scale, no country should pay more than 22 per cent of the FAO budget, down from 25 per cent. Progress was also made on the revision of the International Code of Conduct on the Distribution and Use of Pesticides that should reflect more strongly health and environmental concerns. Member States supported the revised text except for a number of clauses dealing with intellectual property rights and data protection, which will require further review. Four new countries – Monaco, Nauru, Uzbekistan and Yugoslavia – were admitted to FAO during the session, bringing the number of members to 183. read more

TSX slides into red as Wall Street takes a drubbing on technology

TORONTO – The Toronto Stock Exchange stumbled lower in a rough trading session Monday, hurt by weakness in resource and technology stocks.The S&P/TSX composite index moved down 122.77 points to 14,270.33.Pulling down the TSX were lower commodity prices, while the reverberations of beaten down technology stocks on the Nasdaq added extra pressure in Canada. Traders are concerned that big technology stocks such as Yahoo and Facebook are overvalued.On Wall Street, the Nasdaq dropped 47.98 points at 4,079.75, a decline of 1.2 per cent for the day. That was after plunging 110 points, or 2.6 per cent, on Friday.The Dow Jones industrials slid 166.84 points to 16,245.87 and the S&P 500 index gave back 20.05 points to 1,845.04.Nervousness has enveloped stock markets in recent sessions after last week’s optimism turned into widespread caution. The latest U.S. jobs figures on Friday showed that growth in the American economy would be a slow process, while the Federal Reserve’s stance on raising interest rates remains uncertain. Some insight may come Wednesday when the Fed releases minutes from its latest meeting in mid-March.In commodities, the May crude contract dropped 70 cents to settle at US$100.44 a barrel, while June gold bullion was down $5.20 at US$1,298.30 an ounce. May copper climbed 1.7 cents to US$3.04 a pound.The Canadian dollar moved ahead 0.10 of a cent to 91.17 cents US, as the Bank of Canada gave reason for optimism about the economy with its latest business sentiment survey. The quarterly survey of 100 companies showed that hiring intentions last month were among the most positive in almost two years amid higher sales and improved prospects, with an increasing number of companies reporting growth in sales over the last 12 months.Edward Jones analyst Craig Fehr said he expected economic fundamentals to remain reasonably good in the coming months even as traders begin to reconsider which companies they invest in — perhaps one of the triggers of the recent market volatility.“Improvement in the economy and profits will play out in the balance of the year and that should provide modest support for the equity markets,” said Fehr, the Canadian market strategist for Edward Jones in St. Louis.“(But) When you have these extraordinary gains like we’ve had recently, investors perhaps look for some excuses in the very short term to move money or sell out.”In corporate developments, the Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan Inc. (TSX:POT) says it will have a new president and CEO starting in July. Bill Doyle will leave his position after leading efforts to thwart an attempted takeover of Canada’s largest fertilizer producer by global mining giant BHP Billiton. Doyle will be replaced by Jochen Tilk, a 30-year mining veteran who worked as chief executive of Toronto-based Inmet Mining.Potash shares dropped 71 cents to $37.11.Magna International Inc.

Football Dixon Burrow and McLaurin shine in spring game

OSU redshirt junior wide receiver Johnnie Dixon hauls in a touchdown reception during the 2017 spring game. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorThough points were hard to come by for Ohio State the last time the Buckeyes stepped on the field, scoring was plentiful on Saturday during the Scarlet’s 38-31 victory in the 2017 spring game. Redshirt senior quarterback J.T. Barrett wasted no time as he led the Team Gray offense down the field on the first possession, hitting redshirt sophomore tight end A.J. Alexander in the end zone for a 1-yard touchdown.Alexander and redshirt junior wide receiver Parris Campbell were Barrett’s favorite targets Saturday afternoon. Alexander caught four passes for 36 yards while Campbell reeled in five passes for 46 yards. Barrett completed 8-of-12 passes for 71 yards including the aforementioned touchdown. In the first, with Barrett and the starters in the game, OSU played a glorified game of two-hand touch, not wanting to injure key players. “It’s either you don’t play some guys or you kind of restrict the tackling and keep guys up,” Meyer said. “And I wanted them to experience the crowd and play and finish a good spring.”On the starting quarterback’s last play of the day, redshirt sophomore cornerback Damon Arnette intercepted his pass when redshirt junior defensive end Sam Hubbard pushed an offensive lineman into Barrett. The quarterback subbed out after just one quarter and three offensive possessions.Questions remain about whether the addition of co-offensive coordinators Kevin Wilson and Ryan Day can improve the deep passing game. But the spring game provided reason for optimism.“It went very well,” Barrett said. “Before, we were just shooting them. We weren’t necessarily making them at first. But then, with (wide receivers) coach (Zach) Smith and (quarterbacks) coach Day, just really finding landmarks for those throws.”The duo of quarterbacks battling to win the backup spot behind Barrett, redshirt sophomore quarterback Joe Burrow and redshirt freshman quarterback Dwayne Haskins, took full advantage of their opportunities. Burrow completed 14-of-22 passes for 262 yards and Haskins went 26-of-37 for 293 yards.Meyer acknowledged the tight competition after the game and was not ready to determine who will act as Barrett’s backup in the fall.“I want to watch the film and have conversations with our coaches. We haven’t had that yet. I know it is very close, but I’m not prepared to say who is 2, who is 3, et cetera, yet,” Meyer said.Burrow completed three touchdowns in the five minute window late in the first quarter and early second quarter. “Obviously the focus on deep balls this spring was high and I think we got a lot better, a lot more accurate this spring,” Burrow said.Team Scarlet redshirt junior wideout Johnnie Dixon and Team Gray redshirt junior receiver Terry McLaurin caught two touchdowns apiece. Dixon caught six passes for a game-high 108 yards. Dixon, who has dealt with knee issues since arriving in Columbus, was one of the most encouraging signs for the OSU offense.“I was so happy to see him have great success today, because we really need him,” Meyer said. “And he just has to have a great summer. So he stayed healthy. That’s the most important thing.”Junior wide receiver Eric Glover-Williams led Team Gray with seven catches for 64 yards.Of the teams’ combined 105 plays, 74 were passes.Even redshirt sophomore running back Mike Weber got in the action as he tossed a 17-yard pass to Barrett in the first quarter. Weber rushed just five times for 13 yards. Redshirt freshman Demario McCall led both teams in rushing as he took six carries for 83 yards. Freshman quarterback Tate Martell played for the first time as a Buckeye, taking his first play from scrimmage up the middle for a 5-yard rushing touchdown. OSU capped off the game with Jacob Jarvis, a team inspiration who suffers from muscular dystrophy and is a mainstay on the sidelines, driving his wheelchair across the goal line for the final score as time expired. The team quickly surrounded him in the endzone. OSU coach Urban Meyer said senior defensive end Jalyn Holmes and redshirt senior defensive end Tyquan Lewis approached him with the idea.He has a lot of love for us and we love him back. It’s just a real spiritual feeling that you can’t really explain,” Lewis said.While there were no play-stopping injuries during the game, senior left tackle Jamarco Jones unexpectedly sat out.“It was a beautiful day. Got a lot of work done. The best thing was we’re injury-free today,” Meyer said.Spring game festivities took place outside the whistles as well. Before the game, the Buckeyes gathered at the 50-yard line for the circle drill. Then, during halftime, students raced against senior wide receiver Elijaah Goins and competed in passing drills against Barrett, Burrow, Haskins and former OSU quarterback Cardale Jones and H-back Curtis Samuel.Former OSU running back Ezekiel Elliott, defensive end Joey Bosa and safety Tyvis Powell were among the former Buckeyes in attendance for Saturday’s game.OSU opens the 2017 season in Bloomington, Indiana on Aug. 31, when the Buckeyes travel west to take on the Indiana Hoosiers. read more

17 TDs admit theyve had an alcoholic drink before going into the

first_imgUpdated 11.00pmAT LEAST 17 TDs have admitted to taking a drink before returning to the Dáil chamber to take part in a debate or vote, according to a new survey.The survey of TDs by TV3′s Midweek programme has found that 60 of the 79 deputies who responded to the survey think the Dáil bar should not be allowed to serve alcohol past regular licensing hours.A special programme on drinking in the Oireachtas bars is being broadcast tonight at 10pm in the wake of controversy that has arisen about TDs drinking during late-night sittings.As TheJournal.ie revealed in September, nearly €4,000 was spent on alcoholic drinks in the two Oireachtas bars on the day and night of the debate on the Protection of Life during Pregnancy Bill when the now infamous ‘Lapgate’ incident occurred.Midweek contacted all 166 TDs and got 79 responses with 17 TDs admitting to consuming an alcoholic drink and then returning to the Dáil chamber even if it was just to vote.Seventy-two of those surveyed said that alcohol should not be banned from Leinster House, while 67 of the 79 surveyed said they did not agree with the statement that there is a drinking culture in the Oireachtas.Interviewed for the programme, the Labour Party chief whip, Emmet Stagg said he is not concerned about TDs taking a drink before participating in Dáil debates.“If a TD has a pint or two I don’t think that’s a problem for me and I don’t think it’s a problem for the citizens of the country either,” he said.He claimed “there’s loads of places” where people go at lunchtime to have a pint, saying this does not affect their ability to carry out their job.“In quite a lot of jobs that happens and people go to pubs and people have a pint and a sandwich for their lunch,” he said.Stagg continued: “Irish people have a pint regularly with their lunch, they have a pint after their work time, they have a pint sometimes at night time. So do I and I enjoy them.”In a statement to TheJournal.ie this evening, Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams criticised Deputy Stagg’s comments, adding that “TDs should not be drinking on the job”.“For Emmet Stagg to say that there is no problem if TDs drink alcohol before engaging in Dail debates shows how seriously out of touch with public feeling some members of this Government now are”, he said.He also called for the Dáil Bar to regulated in the same way as any other bar, and accused Leinster House authorities of “dodging the issue”.Deputy Adams previously told this website that there were at least two TDs in his vicinity who were intoxicated on the night the former Anglo Irish Bank was liquidated as part of the promissory note deal in February.The Ceann Comhairle Seán Barrett has previously played down concerns about drinking by TDs.Originally published 5.45pmRead: Chief Whip has no regrets over 5am Dáil sitting, says FG could have lost 10 TDsRead: Oireachtas bars turned over €300,000 last yearRead: Here’s what a drink costs in the Leinster House barslast_img read more

Social media the good the bad and the ugly

first_imgCYBERBULLYING IN IRISH schools is among the highest in the EU.That was one of the points made in a Dáil debate this afternoon.TDs debated a report on addressing the growth of social media and tackling cyberbullying.Fine Gael TD, John O’Mahony chaired the debate, noting that “in a digital age, social media is changing how the public communicate with each other”.The deputy outlined some of the recommendations in the report, such as: He warned how cyberbullying was not restricted to just students with students, but that students can bully teachers in this way too.The suggested link between cyberbullying and suicide has brought the problem to the country’s attention but the report found that the two “are not necessarily always linked”.The committee pointed to American research which found that “cyberbullying is rarely the sole or main cause of death by suicide”. However, O’Mahony outlined that it can be a “contributing factor and have an impact of confidence and self esteem”.He said that it is interesting to note how other countries have dealt with these problems.In the UK, teachers have a direct line to contact an agency that will direct them to deal with these situations.”Minister Pat Rabbitte said the debate was being held because “widespread internet access has given people huge power and reach”.The Minister for Communications described social media as a “broad and diverse church”.The internet is an immense social good… it has made the world a better place…the consequences of social media are mostly positive, it can enrich and enlighten the days of people around the world on a daily basis.“Social media has already fundamentally changed the way people, especially young people, interact with and experience media. It has also recast how they interact with their peers.”He said “for the most part this is a good thing, but there are downsides as well” adding that “as a state and society we have a responsibility to protect our children”.While we should not and cannot attempt to regulate the media in a formal way, we should not shy from looking at tools in a rational way to see if we can make improvements.Fianna Fail TD Michael Moynihan, said he supported an action plan on bullying. Speaking about schools, he said:There is a clear need for guidelines to be put in place so that principles dealing with these cases have a clear protocol to follow. This is a common sense proposal and one that has to be followed.He also extended that message to the workplace saying, “Employers too have an important role to play in putting guidelines in place that can inform management when serious issues arise”, adding that they also need to introduce a social media policy.He expressed how Fianna Fail proposal’s “would make cyberbullying an offence for the first time”.“Parents would also be deemed to have committed an offensive if they knew cyber bullying was taking place but did nothing about it.”Failing to tackle this problem straight on will only result in further pain for families, he claimed.Sinn Fein TD Michael Colreavy said “social media has broken through what was once seen as a young persons tool, people in their 50s and 60s are now using it”.He also highlighted the positive role social media plays in Ireland, especially at a time of emigrationIt allows people at different sides of the globe to stay in touch practically for free, there was a time emigrants in would have to budget a part of there weekly income to phone home to Ireland.“Thanks to social media and Skype, Irish families can see what is happening in the lives of loved ones around the world.”He added:It doesn’t eliminate the pain of emigration but it does make the world that little bit smaller.Deputy Colreavy said bullying has unfortunately always existed in Irish classrooms, citing that 17 per cent of 12- to 18-year-olds suffered at the hands of it at least once.The difference is that with cyberbullying, the bully follows the victims into their homes and into their bedrooms.The Chairman of the debate, Deputy John O’Mahony concluded that this is “an evolving and fast moving story” and that “it is important the public realise that there is action being taken and there is progress being made.”Two thirds of students say they know someone who died by suicide>One in seven children subjected to cyber bullying in last three months>Time to act on bullying before tragedy hits primary schools, says expert> Social media accounts must be closed immediately by the relevant company when they are opened by underage children;Employers should introduce a social media policy;Teachers, parents and children should be educated in how to use social media safely.He also said one of the difficulties with dealing with this issue is that “by the time one area is addressed, another one presents itself in a manner not envisaged, in other words, it’s difficult to get ahead of the curve”.The committee also recommended that school principles should have a clear programme to follow when they come across internet bullying.Deputy O’Mahony said:There was a time when bullying was confined to the school grounds but now it’s 24/7 and not as visible as it once was.last_img read more

1970s manslaughter conviction of Martin Conmey miscarriage of justice

first_imgTHE COURT OF Criminal Appeal has ruled that the conviction of a Co Meath man for killing his teenage neighbour more than 40 years ago was a ‘miscarriage of justice’.Martin Conmey served three years in prison after being convicted of the manslaughter of 19-year-old Una Lynskey, who disappeared in October 1971 near her home at Porterstown Lane in Ratoath.Her body was later discovered in the Dublin Mountains.The conviction was quashed in 2010 after newly discovered facts came to light, and Martin Conmey applied again to the appeal court to revisit the case, contending that  “that a newly discovered fact shows there has been a miscarriage of justice”.In his ruling today, Justice Adrian Hardiman found that Martin Conmey could only have been convicted of the offence on the basis of a finding that he was “part of a joint enterprise” with others.But he said there was no evidence to support that that was the case.He said this was because three original statements of parties who testified during the 1972 trial were suppressed by “a person unknown” who was connected with the prosecution.And he ruled that on such a basis, the original conviction amounted to a miscarriage of justice.Speaking to reporters after the judgement, Conmey said he had “gone through a very difficult life, being accused of a crime I am completely innocent of”. It has affected my health and has been difficult to get through most days.“I am delighted that the decision of the court today has totally cleared my name.”According to BBC Northern Ireland’s report on the case today, his lawyers plan to apply for compensation as a result of the Court of Criminal Appeal’s finding.Read The public will have a problem with Brian Purcell keeping his €200,000 salary’Read Irishman reported missing in Francelast_img read more

Center for the governance of AI releases report on American attitudes and

first_imgCenter for the Governance of AI, housed within the University of Oxford, released a report yesterday, titled “Artificial Intelligence: American Attitudes and Trends” based on the findings from a nationally representative survey that they conducted using the survey firm YouGov.  The report talks about the results from the survey that provides an insight into the American public’s attitudes and opinion toward AI as well as AI governance. Let’s have a look at some of the major highlights from the report. Key highlights Majority of the Americans support than oppose AI development The report states that Americans express mixed support towards AI development, with the majority of them supporting the development than opposing it. The survey results showed that a  substantial 41% of the American respondents strongly support the development of AI and a smaller minority (22%) strongly opposes its development. About 28% of the respondents expressed a neutral attitude towards AI development and 10% stated that they do not know. Artificial Intelligence: American Attitudes and Trends Support for AI development varies between gender, race, experience, and education The report states that support of the American public towards AI development is greater among wealthy, educated, male, or those with experience in technology. The Center for the governance of AI performed a multiple linear regression to predict the support of the American public. As per the survey results, a majority of the respondents belonging to the following four subgroups expressed support towards AI development: The ones with four-year college degrees (57%) The ones with an annual household income above $100,000 (59%) Those who have graduated with a computer science or engineering degree (56%) Those with experience in computer science or programming (58%). On the other hand, women (35%), those with a high school degree or less (29%), and the ones with an annual household income below $30,000 (33%) showed less enthusiasm towards AI development. A large majority of Americans want more careful management of AI and robots The report states that a majority of the American public (more than eight in 10) want AI and robot to be carefully managed, while only 6% disagrees. Center for the governance of AI replicated a question from the 2017 Special Eurobarometer, to compare Americans’ attitudes with those of EU residents. They found out that the 82% of those in the U.S  want more careful management of robots and AI, which is not quite far from the EU average, where 88% of the public supports the same notion. Similarly, 6% of Americans don’t support the notion which is quite close to the EU average where 7% disagreed. The report states that a large percentage of respondents in the survey selected the “don’t know” option. Americans consider many AI governance challenges to be important The report states that a majority of the Americans consider AI governance challenges such as prioritizing data privacy and preventing AI-enhanced digital manipulation, etc, of high importance. Respondents of the survey were asked to randomly consider five AI governance challenges out of the given 13. As per the survey results, the AI governance challenges that Americans think most impactful and important for tech companies to tackle include data privacy and AI-enhanced cyber attacks, and surveillance. Artificial Intelligence: American Attitudes and Trends On the other hand, the challenges that are considered on average 7% less likely to be impactful by the Americans include autonomous vehicles, value alignment, bias in using AI for hiring, the U.S.-China arms race, disease diagnosis, and technological unemployment. At last, challenges that are perceived as even more less likely to be impactful includes criminal justice bias and critical AI systems failures. Artificial Intelligence: American Attitudes and Trends Americans see the potential for U.S. China cooperation on certain AI governance challenges As a part of the survey, all the American respondents were assigned three out of five AI governance challenges, on which they see US-China co-operation. The five challenges included: AI cyber attacks against governments, individuals, and organizations. AI-assisted surveillance violates privacy and civil liberties. AI systems that are safe, trustworthy, and aligned with human values. Banning lethal autonomous weapons. Guarantee of a good standard of living for people who are at risk of losing their jobs to automation. The survey results showed that China cooperation on value alignment is perceived to be the most likely (48% mean likelihood) and cooperation to prevent AI-assisted surveillance being the least likely (40% mean likelihood). “In the future, we plan to survey Chinese respondents to understand how they view U.S.-China cooperation on AI and what governance issues they think the two countries could collaborate on”, states the report. Americans don’t think labor market disruptions will increase with time As a part of the survey, respondents were asked to select one out of four conditions based on the likelihood of AI and automation creating more jobs than eliminating over the future time frames of 10 years, 20 years, and 50 years. The survey results showed that on average, American public disagrees with the statement “automation and AI will create more jobs than they will eliminate” more than they agree with it. Also, about a quarter of respondents gave “don’t know” responses. However, respondents’ agreement with the statement increased slightly with the future time frame.                                         Artificial Intelligence: American Attitudes and Trends Americans trust the U.S. military, universities, tech firms, and non-gov organizations the most to build AI The report states that Americans put more trust in tech companies and non-governmental organizations than in governments for the development and use of AI. As a part of the survey, respondents were randomly assigned five actors out of 15 that are not well-known to the public such as NATO, CERN, and OpenAI. Respondents were also asked how much confidence they have in each of these actors to build AI and were again randomly assigned five out of 15 actors. As per the results of the survey, Americans consider university researchers and the U.S. military as the most trusted groups to develop AI. Half of the Americans responded with a “great deal” or “fair amount” of confidence for this group. Americans expressed slightly less confidence when it came to tech companies, non-profit organizations, and American intelligence organizations. In general, the American public finds more confidence in non-governmental organizations as opposed to the governmental ones. Artificial Intelligence: American Attitudes and Trends 41% of the American population expressed a “great deal” or even a “fair amount” of confidence in “tech companies,” as compared to the 26% who feel that way about the U.S. federal government. American Public has more trust in intergovernmental research organizations CERN), the Partnership on AI, and non-governmental scientific organizations (e.g., AAAI). Moreover, about one in five respondents in a survey selected a “don’t know” response. The surveys were conducted between June 6 and 14, 2018, where a total of 2,000 American adults (18+) completed the survey. The analysis of the survey was pre-registered on the Open Science Framework. “Supported by a grant from the Ethics and Governance of AI Fund, we intend to conduct more extensive and intensive surveys in the coming years, including of residents in Europe, China, and other countries”, states the report.

Passengers were welcomed at the Dorval airport with a 21-gun royal salute and a 100-man royal guard from the Royal 22nd Regiment, whose marching band performed the Dutch national anthem. Formal receptions were held at the Ritz Carlton and the Windsor hotel.More news:  Sunwing to further boost Mazatlán service with new flights from OttawaPrince Bernhard’s speech underlined the bond that existed between the two countries.
