The assassinated driver and the kidnapped journalist have not been named, to protect the safety of the journalist.“Harassing, intimidating, kidnapping and killing journalists and those brave enough to work with them in extremely dangerous environments represents an attack on the human rights of entire societies,” said Mr. Matsuura in a statement released at the agency’s Paris headquarters.“The people of Iraq, like all of us, have a fundamental and inalienable right to inform one another about events and discuss them. Violence cannot be allowed to take the place of freedom of speech,” concluded Mr Matsuura, whose agency has a mandate to defend press freedom.Mr al-Hiti, 27, was last seen alive on 28 October when he left his house to go to the office of al-Youm, which was launched earlier this month.

UN refugee agency calls for protection of Somalis ordered to leave Kenya

5 November 2010With concern growing over the fate of more than 8,000 Somalis ordered out of northern Kenya, the UN refugee agency today reiterated its appeal for Somalis to receive international protection. Earlier this week, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) had called upon the Kenyan government to immediately halt the return of Somalis from a border camp in the Mandera area, in the country’s north-east. The Somalis had been at the camp since 17 October and were mainly women, children and the elderly – they had fled there to escape fighting between Al-Shabaab and Ahlu Sunna Wal Janaa forces in the Somali town of Bulla Hawa. Following the authorities’ orders, most initially moved into the no-man’s land between Kenya and Somalia and refused to go further. As of this morning it appears however that some have dispersed, while others are believed to have fled into neighbouring Ethiopia.“Our staff was in touch with some of the refugees yesterday by phone,” said UNHCR spokesperson Adrian Edwards at a press briefing in Geneva today. “They told us that they were reluctant to move back into Somalia for fear of insecurity, that people were living in the open in shelters made mainly of sticks, and that they were in urgent need of better shelter, food and water.”Edwards renewed the call made by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, António Guterres, to the UNHCR executive committee in October, for Somalis to receive international protection in line with the updated eligibility guidelines that UNHCR issued earlier this year. UNHCR, in its advice to governments, had made clear that people fleeing central and southern Somalia were at substantial risk and that their international protection needs must be respected.Earlier this week, noting that Kenya has for many years generously hosted tens of thousands of Somali refugees, UNHCR said that to be forcibly returning people to Somalia now betrays that spirit, places lives at risk and contravenes the principles of non-refoulement – or non forced return – that are contained in Kenya’s Constitution, its Refugees Act and in international refugee law. read more

Approximately 30 of dengue patients are children

Approximately 30% of dengue patients are children between the years of 5 -19 years, according to the National Dengue Control Unit of the Ministry of Health (MoH).Sri Lanka is reporting an increased number of dengue cases, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said today. 301 deaths from dengue have been reported from the MoH for the year 2017. From 1 January to 28 July 2017, the Epidemiology Unit of the Ministry of Health, Nutrition and Indigenous Medicine Sri Lanka reported 110 372 cases of dengue. WHO presented an intensified strategic and operational plan to rapidly reduce dengue morbidity and mortality in Sri Lanka. The Plan was accepted by the Minister of Health.The Entomologist and Technical Officer deployed by WHO SEARO have conducted trainings for entomologists and public health inspectors in vector control. A media workshop was held by WHO, MOH and UNICEF on 27 July to seek the continued support of the media in spreading awareness on the importance of vector control and personal protection in curtailing the spread of dengue.Approximately 44.5% of cases and 53% of deaths were reported from the Western province.

Saudis announce new tax rate for Aramco amid plans for IPO

by Abdullah Al-Shihri And Aya Batrawy, The Associated Press Posted Mar 27, 2017 10:02 am MDT Last Updated Mar 27, 2017 at 11:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Saudis announce new tax rate for Aramco amid plans for IPO RIYADH, Saudi Arabia – Saudi Arabia on Monday reduced the tax rate for Saudi Aramco as plans move forward to publicly list shares of the state-owned oil giant.The new code, rolled out by royal decree from King Salman, taxes Aramco at 50 per cent on income retroactively starting Jan. 1.Aramco CEO Amin Nasser thanked the king in a statement for the decree reducing the company’s tax rate from what he said was 85 per cent, and said it “will bring Saudi Aramco in line with international benchmarks.”The company’s oil production is Saudi Arabia’s main source of revenue and its finances are not publicly disclosed. The government is embarking on an overhaul of its economy to move away from heavy reliance on oil, its main export, after a sharp drop in prices.The government is preparing to list less than 5 per cent of Aramco, possibly by next year, on the Saudi stock exchange and an international exchange. It is gearing up to be the largest flotation in history, with officials valuing Aramco at more than $2 trillion. The government would remain the company’s largest shareholder.The London-based Capital Economics said the lower tax rate means that the company will have a greater share of its profits available to pay out as dividends to shareholders. It says the dividends going to the government will largely cover the lost tax revenue, so that the move represents “merely a shift in the way that oil revenues accrue to the government.”Finance Minister Mohammed al-Jadaan said in a statement that the new tax code will have no impact on the government’s ability to deliver services to its citizens.He said any tax revenue reductions “are replaced by stable dividend payments by government-owned companies, and other sources of revenue including profits resulting from investments.”Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih also said the royal order will not negatively affect state coffers, adding that the kingdom’s hydrocarbon resources “remain sovereign.”The decree imposes a 50 per cent tax on oil and gas producers that have invested capital of more than $100 billion in the kingdom. That figure jumps to 65 per cent for producers with between $80 billion and $100 billion in invested capital, 75 per cent if between $60 billion and $80 billion, and 85 per cent on producers with invested capital that does not exceed $60 billion.___Batrawy reported from Dubai, United Arab Emirates. read more

Creepy acrylic spine turns dancers into instruments

first_imgAs we’ve mentioned before, the musical space rarely sees new instruments being created — not a new way to make the same old sound, but a new way to actually interact with music and therefore create it. Modders and artists Joseph and Ian didn’t exactly create an entirely new noise we as a human race have not yet previously heard, but did create a completely new instrument we haven’t yet seen. Furthermore, it looks so much like a spine, that it’s called The Spine, and is super creepy.The instrument isn’t just intended for employees working a haunted house, but rather is intended for dancers. The spine-like shape of it instantly makes sense when you realize how a dancer can’t exactly play drums or guitar while fluidly prancing and twisting around a stage. Beginning life as a foam prototype then moving on to a model made from transparent laser-cut acrylic, PVC tubing, and PETg rods, the Spine eschews traditional methods of attachment, and instead opts for interference fitting. Rather than glue, interference fitting uses the precise placement of parts to create friction in order to hold everything together.Though the Spine is flexible, the dancer doesn’t have to worry much about plucking strings or pressing keys, as the music is made simply by the movement of the instrument. So, while the Spine is attached to the dancer and she contorts her body, sensors in the Spine’s joints track its movement and feed the information to a microcontroller, which uses a ZigBee radio transceiver to send it off to a computer. The computer turns the data into sound, and thus, turns the dancer into a instrument.As displayed in the video above, the noise the Spine creates sounds like it’d fit right into a survival horror or sci-fi game or movie. If the dancer can’t quite contort her body in a specific rhythm and motion in order to create pleasing music, the Spine can be detached from the dancer, and manipulated by hand like a more traditional instrument.For more info on the Spine, check out Joseph’s blog about it.last_img read more

Texas state workers fear fallout from changing math on pensions

first_imgThousands of retired Texas state workers are essentially stuck in 2001. Though health care, food and pretty much everything else keep getting more expensive, their monthly pension checks haven’t budged. [Full story] The House unanimously approved a Dallas pension bill aimed at preventing first responders’ retirement fund from becoming insolvent within a decade. [Full story] The House passed a controversial Senate version of a Houston pension bill, angering firefighters. But in Dallas, leaders appear to have coalesced around a bill that once divided the mayor and first responders in that city. [Full story] Read related Tribune coverage:center_img Share Illustration by Todd Wiseman | Texas TribuneTexas state workers fear fallout from changing math on pensions, illustration from Texas Tribune for a story on August 22nd, 2017.Jerry Wald retired early after 21 years of state service and left behind the stresses of his supervisor role at the Department of Aging and Disability Services. But a decade after he stopped punching the clock, the 67-year-old has a different sort of anxiety: watching the buying power of his monthly state pension check shrink.“Every year I’m alive, I’m losing money,” said Wald, who lives in Houston.Though health care, food and most everything else keeps getting more expensive, the monthly pension checks for thousands of retired state workers haven’t increased since 2001. An amalgam of factors, including chronic legislative underfunding that’s only recently been addressed, has kept the Employees Retirement System of Texas from adjusting its payments for the rising cost of living. And now a looming vote by the retirement system’s board of trustees has retirees even more worried. On Wednesday, the board will consider lowering its earnings assumption for the $26 billion trust fund and changing its predicted rate of return from 8 percent per year to as little as 7 or 7.25 percent, based upon the recommendations of a financial firm hired to perform a broader study of the system.The move may sound innocuous, but it could have major implications for the state budget and the retirement system’s beneficiaries.Labor advocates fear the Legislature would respond to the change by shifting more financial burden onto the system’s beneficiaries, either by forcing current employees to chip in more for their future pensions, cutting benefits or closing off the fund to future retirees.Lowering the expected rate of return wouldn’t affect how much money flows into the retirement system, but it would dramatically alter its long-term balance sheet. Under current assumptions, the fund is projected to grow large enough to cover its liabilities within 35 years. Under a 7 or 7.25 percent expected rate of return, the fund would never be expected to grow large enough to provide full benefits to retirees into the future.“We’re very, very concerned about it,” said Seth Hutchinson, vice president of the Texas State Employees Union. “The Legislature in recent years has made a lot of progress in investing money to shore up the pension fund, and state employees have done the same. Lowering the assumed rate of return will just undo that progress and just move the goalposts further back for state retirees.”The Employees Retirement System handles benefits for about 240,000 active and retired state employees, elected officials, law enforcement and prison officers and judges. On average, the system’s beneficiaries receive $1,600 per month — which now buys what less than $1,200 would have in 2001, a 25 percent drop in purchasing power.Doug Danzeiser, who directs an office at the Texas Department of Insurance and is one of three appointed trustees of the retirement system’s six-member board, said he has received hundreds of emails from retirees concerned about the upcoming vote.  “It’s a difficult situation,” said Danzeiser, who added that he trusts the analysis of the board’s hired experts. A host of other states already have lowered their predicted rates of return for state pension funds, a change some financial analysts say is needed, largely because low interest rates have limited earnings for the type of low-risk investments that pension funds generally favor.“The days of very high returns with an acceptable level of risk are just behind us,” said Tom Aaron, a vice president and senior analyst at Moody’s Investors Service.Reducing the rate to 7 percent would give Texas a more conservative expectation than most state pension funds, but the move would be in line with states that have most recently switched. California, which runs some of the nation’s largest public pension funds, recently voted to lower the expected return rates of its employee and teacher retirement funds from 7.5 percent to 7 percent. If Texas were to follow suit, Moody’s might view it as a positive for the state’s credit ratings, Aaron said.“What it ends up doing is typically forcing the governments to pay more into the fund and sooner – and fit that into their ongoing operations,” he said. “And it also allows the fund to take on less investment risks.”Proponents of the change point to the fact that over the past 20 years, annual returns for the trust fund have hovered at 6.9 percent, and the 25-year return rate is 7.4 percent.Seeking to protect the status quo, labor advocates point to the retirement fund’s healthier 8.3 percent annual returns over the previous 30 years.“I definitely think [returns] should be looked at in the long term — that’s what we’re all about,” said Janice Zitelman, a retired social worker who served as an elected retirement system trustee from 1989 to 2001. “I think they can wait to lower it.”Folks on both sides of the debate agree a lower rate would eventually prompt action from the Legislature, either by putting more cash into the fund or asking beneficiaries to make a fresh round of sacrifices.Texas law says state pension funds can’t adjust for cost of living unless the funds are actuarially sound — that is, they have enough money available to cover all liabilities even after increasing retiree payments. As it stands, the Employee Retirement System is expected to reach that threshold in 35 years, which is actually an improvement compared the past two decades.Texas tended to fully fund the Employees Retirement System throughout the 1990s. But a turn-of-the-century recession triggered a long streak of chronic legislative underfunding that strained the system. In 2015, lawmakers sought to shore up the retirement system by increasing state and employee contributions by roughly 2 percent each.State Rep. Dan Flynn, R-Canton, who chairs the House Pensions Committee, said he preferred the conservative 7 percent figure, but “I’m comfortable going with whatever [trustees] think is best.”Not every lawmaker is completely comfortable with the proposed move.Sen. Kirk Watson, D-Austin and a member of the Senate’s powerful budget-writing committee, said he worries a vote to lower earnings projections — merited or not — would prompt lawmakers to reach for simplistic fixes that could harm retirees.“I’m not yet convinced that everyone fully understands that those are the repercussions of this,” Watson said. “This is an issue that the Legislature has created, and we need the Legislature to live up to its own constitutional responsibility to state employees.”last_img read more

Twentieth Century Fox Invests Heavily in BOOM Studios

first_img With all the biggest box office hits being comic book adaptations, it might be a good idea to have a stake in a comics company. Twentieth Century Fox Film announced a “strategic investment” in comic book and graphic novel publisher BOOM! Studios. According to a press release, the investment gives Fox a “significant minority stake” in the largest independent comics publisher.BOOM! is a huge independent comics company that shares ownership of its series with their creators. In the past eight years, they’ve won the Best Publisher Gem Award seven times, and claimed several Harvey and Eisner Awards. You might know them as the publishers of Lumberjanes, The Woods, Klaus and Mouse Guard. They’ve also published the WWE and Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers comics, as well a few Cartoon Network and Jim Henson company titles. (The Muppet Show Comic Book is a personal favorite.)This isn’t the first time BOOM! and Twentieth Century Fox have worked together. Fox has gets a first look at any film or television adaptations BOOM! wants to pursue. Currently, the studio is developing series based on Irredeemable, Lumberjanes, Mouse Guard, Imagine Agents, and Malignant Man, a comic created by Furious 7-director James Wan. Currently, a film based on The Empty Man is in post-production. Twentieth Century Fox Film CEO and Chairman Stacey Snider said the investment will allow the company to work more closely with BOOM!’s writers and artists.BOOM! CEO and Founder Ross Richie said the investment will enable them to create even more original content. “Fox has been an incredibly supportive partner and our creative alliance has been tremendously successful… Now BOOM! can greenlight more new series from comic book creators, deepen its distribution relationships, and widen its marketing reach,” he said. “It means BOOM! will have better support and resources to publish world-class content!”The investment is definitely a smart move on Fox’s part. Comic book movies are consistently the biggest money-makers of the year, and they’re going to need more than X-Men to compete with Disney and Warner Bros. Hopefully for us audience members, the move means we’ll start seeing more comic book movies that aren’t the standard superhero fare. Can’t wait to see what that Lumberjanes movie turns out to be.

World Bank Gaza economy on verge of collapse

first_img Get a lawn your neighbor will be jealous of Natural spring cleaning tips and tricks for your home Top Stories JERUSALEM (AP) — Gaza’s economy is on the “verge of collapse,” a new World Bank report warned Friday, saying the unemployment rate there is now the highest in the world and calling on Israel and international donors to remedy the situation.It charged that “blockades, war and poor governance have strangled” the economy of the Gaza Strip, ruled by the Islamic militant group Hamas.The report said Gaza’s GDP would have been four times higher if not for conflicts and restrictions, including a blockade in place since 2007. Sponsored Stories The report warned that the “status quo in Gaza is unsustainable.” It said the coastal territory’s recovery depends on an easing of the blockade and on donor countries honoring their pledges made at an international conference in Cairo after last year’s war.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Comments   Share   Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Israel and Egypt imposed the blockade on Gaza after Hamas violently seized the territory from forces loyal to the Western-backed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Israel says the blockade is necessary to prevent Hamas from getting weapons and building militant infrastructure, while critics say it amounts to collective punishment.Since its takeover, Hamas has fought three wars with Israel, including 50 days of fighting last summer in which thousands of Gaza buildings were either destroyed or damaged. Over 2,200 Palestinians, including hundreds of civilians, were killed during the war. On the Israeli side, 67 soldiers and six civilians were killed.The report said Gaza’s economy was badly hurt as a result of the fighting, especially the agriculture, construction, manufacturing and electricity sectors.It said about 43 percent of Gaza’s 1.8 million residents are unemployed; a figure it said is the highest in the world. Youth unemployment reached about 60 percent by the end of last year, it said.“The current market in Gaza is not able to offer jobs leaving a large population in despair particularly the youth,” Steen Lau Jorgensen, World Bank country director for the West Bank and Gaza, said in the report. “The ongoing blockade and the 2014 war have taken a toll on Gaza’s economy and people’s livelihoods.” Former Arizona Rep.

Snow easy solution for Vancouver Winter Olympics

It has been unseasonably warm and no snow has been falling, so organisers have had to get creative and truck tonnes of snow from higher ground.”The snow that we have up on Cypress Mountain is substantial. It’s just on one side of the mountain versus where the competition venues are,” said Tim Gayda, vice president of sport for the Vancouver Organising Committee (VOC).”So we’re actually moving it for the freestyle venue, which is aerials and moguls.”We’re pushing snow down one side of the mountain and trucking it over into that venue.” Moving snow or trucking it from other areas is the least-preferred option, however, the temperature at Cypress Mountain, about 30 minutes from Vancouver, is too warm to make artificial snow.”It’s the El Nino, which does happen in this area where the ocean currents affect the temperature, that we’re seeing in this period,” Mr Gayda said.”Traditionally we do see in a season what we call the pineapple express and that’s the warm winds coming out of Hawaii. We got hit with it in early January.”Typically it does hit once a season, if that, and so the nice thing for us is we’ve kind of put that behind us and we’re able to do what we need to to get everything done.” There is plenty of snow at Whistler and other areas where events are being held.
