Senior UN official hails Lebanese seizure of refugee camp

“The Lebanese army has extinguished this serious threat posed by Fatah el-Islam to Lebanon’s independence, sovereignty and stability,” said UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon Geir O. Pedersen said, noting that over 150 Lebanese soldiers died “to uphold these principles.” “The fight against Fatah el-Islam in Nahr el-Bared was a fight of both Lebanese and Palestinians against terrorism and is a victory for all of Lebanon,” he noted. The humanitarian obstacles facing Palestinian families displaced by the violence must be tackled, while the efforts must be intensified to rapidly reconstruct the Nahr el-Bared refugee camp and support Lebanese communities affected by the conflict, the Special Coordinator said. Mr. Pedersen said he gives his full support to Prime Minister Fouad Siniora’s call for a donor meeting in the capital Beirut on 10 September. He also conveyed the UN’s condolences to the families of the soldiers and civilians killed, and expressed wishes for a speedy recovery to the injured. Before the fighting began in late May, the camp in northern Lebanon was home to nearly 31,000 people, including about 8,000 classified by the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) as special hardship cases. 4 September 2007A senior United Nations official welcomed the Lebanese army’s full seizure over the weekend of the Nahr el-Bared camp, which has been the scene of months of intense combat with Fatah el-Islam gunmen. read more

Real Madrid should give Barcelona a guard of honour – Alba

first_imgBarcelona’s Jordi Alba is convinced that Real Madrid should give them a guard of honour for having recently been crown La Liga championsThe Catalan giants sealed their 25th league title with a 4-2 win against the now-relegated Deportivo La Coruna last Sunday with Lionel Messi netting a hat-trick.The title marks their seventh one of the past 10 seasons and they recently defeated Sevilla 5-0 in the Copa del Rey final.But for Sunday’s El Clasico against bitter rivals Real, Zinedine Zidane announced that they will not be performing any kind of guard of honour due to Barcelona’s refusal to the same gesture when they won the Club World Cup in December.“It’s not a decision we take, everyone has respect for those who want to,” said Alba, according to AS.Sergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.“The Club World Cup was a competition we didn’t play in. At the [Santiago] Bernabeu, in the league, we have previously performed a guard of honour. If they don’t want to give us a guard of honour it will be because it comes from upstairs.”The defender also defended his head coach Ernesto Valverde for Barcelona’s shocking exit from the Champions League to AS Roma.“It’s an embarrassment, the players have to show our faces, we all make mistakes,” admitted the 29-year-old.“Valverde deserves it more than anyone, he’s the sixth coach to have won a double. He’s managed the dressing room perfectly.”He added: “[The double] has only been done eight times in Barcelona’s history and we have to be very happy. Everyone would have taken it, although we know that in the Champions League we were knocked out badly. The double has been won eight times and the club was founded ages ago.”last_img read more

JFC to be Redefined as Protection and Service Entity

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppJamaica, May 24th, 2017 – Kingston – The Government is to develop a policy framework, which will redefine the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) as a protection and service organisation.  Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, said the policy is expected to be in place by November 2017.   “That will become the launching pad for a discussion about what our new Jamaica protection and service institution will be; (and) what should our new law-enforcement institution be,” he noted.He said it is hoped that the policy will also change people’s perception of the JCF.   “I think that once we get to that point where the people recognise that the JCF is there to serve us, then their job, the Commissioner’s job will be much easier, because at that point, we would have enlisted the entire community in this business of enforcing the law and supporting the rule of law,” he added.The Prime Minster made the remarks as he joined scores of volunteers at the Central Police Station in downtown Kingston yesterday (May 23), to beautify the facility as part of activities for Labour Day 2017.   Central Police Station was one of two national projects. The other was the renovation of the Ward Theatre, also located in downtown Kingston.  The scope of work at the Central Police Station included cleaning, bushing and painting as well as landscaping.The police station has also been selected as one of 55 sites across the island where a mural will be painted as part of the ‘Jamaica 55’ celebrations.  The JCF, among other things, is responsible for the maintenance of law and order, the prevention and detection of crime, the investigation of alleged crimes, the protection of life and property and the enforcement of all criminal laws as defined by the Jamaican Penal Code.#PMAndrewHolness#JFCasProtectionandServiceEntitiy Related Items:#JFCasProtectionandServiceEntitiy, #PMAndrewHolnesslast_img read more

Listen to the 2020 Toyota Supras straightsix growl

first_img 42 Photos Toyota showed some blurry Supra details in the video, but the best look we’ve had of the car thus far came from an alleged forum leak that offered up a full view of the car’s front end. The automaker still hasn’t said how much power its 3.0-liter I6 makes, but on our first drive of the car, our butt dyno puts it “north of 350.” While there were concerns that the Supra might be too similar to the new BMW Z4 it shares a platform with, that shouldn’t be a problem — in fact, Toyota’s and BMW’s engineers haven’t talked to each other since 2014. Both cars will use a 3.0-liter I6, but Toyota’s will undoubtedly have a bit more edge, as the Z4 is more of a leisure vehicle than a proper performer.Toyota will likely make enough Supras to satisfy demand, but if you want the first one off the line, get your auction arm ready. Toyota will auction off Supra No. 001 at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona on Jan. 19, 2019. If its window sticker is too rich for your blood (even though nobody knows what it costs yet), you can get some of the car’s camouflage in convenient wrapping paper form, too.

Now, we finally have an idea of what it’ll sound like.Toyota Europe posted a new video to its YouTube channel on Wednesday. The short clip offers 30 seconds of pure Supra sound and nothing else. As a straight-six enthusiast, I will say that I prefer the raspy nature of BMW’s retired S54, but the Toyota has the right amount of grittiness, with a few exhaust burps thrown into the mix for good measure.

Experts give thumbs up for UGC move to have relook into cap

first_imgHyderabad: University Grants Commission’s (UGC) proposal to re-look into the restrictions on students pursuing multiple degrees simultaneously would be a departure from the age-old education system being introduced under British Raj days. Experts say that introducing a student-centric education system is long due. However, several factors held back opening up doors to allow students to explore studies of their choice. Also Read – With 61 feet high, Khairatabad Ganesh claimed to be tallest idol in India Advertise With Us Even the recently introduced Choice Based Credit System (CBSE) is not delivering the expected outcomes resulting the UGC to take a relook into its earlier decision to allow students only one postgraduate and a certificate course along with their regular degree or postgraduate courses. Speaking to The Hans India, former Vice-Chancellor of Osmania University Prof S Ramachandram said, a student-centric education is need of the hour. It is definitely a departure from the conventional system continuing for decades. Also Read – Unidentified assailants killed a person in Saidabad PS limits Advertise With Us While it is a welcome sign to introduce a student-centric system, at the same time, there are several logistical issues which need to be addressed. They include upgrading the infrastructure and human resources, particularly, in the State universities, he added. Toeing a similar line, former Vice-Chancellor of Dr Ambedkar Open University, Prof K Seetha Rama Rao said opportunities for the students to pursue different courses could be allowed against the backdrop of technological interface making it possible. Advertise With Us As of now, students have been pursuing diploma or certificate courses, besides, taking advantage of the Open and Distance Learning as well as an online learning mode. While the idea gives leverage at the same time, how it is going to be implemented is what matters. “A student pursuing a regular course may not be allowed to pursue another regular course, he pointed out. Former Vice-Chancellor of Andhra University, Visakhapatnam, Prof G Nageswara Rao said the current restrictions on the number of courses is being implemented as a student pursuing a regular course cannot attend another regular course at the same time. However, certainly, it will be a departure from the old school of ways of learning. A BTech student can pursue through distance and online mode the kind of courses which he or she prefers. It allows freedom to the students to choose in line with his interests. The initiative needs to be welcomed at the same time the practical problems if any crop up needs to be addressed, he said.

Wrestling is Still a Threat in The Jetsons WWE RoboWrestleMania

first_imgStay on target ‘Space Ghost Coast to Coast’ Is Still Influential and FunnyShaggy In Mortal Kombat? It’s Time For A Hanna-Barbera Fighting Game Full stop, I don’t like professional wrestling at all. If you want more details you can read my review of the frustratingly well-designed WWE app, but the fascinating idea of entertainment that blends fact and fiction is utterly wasted on these stupid beefcake, borderline-Juggalo spectacles. However, for some baffling reason loads of otherwise smart and respectable folks in the industries I work still unironically enjoys wrestling in the Year of Our Lord 2017, and so I’ve picked up more wrestling knowledge through sheer osmosis than I would like to admit.But my brain isn’t the only thing wrestling keeps seeping into against my will. In a bid to seduce innocent, ignorant children, the WWE has begun appearing inexplicable team-up cartoon movies alongside Hanna-Barbera characters. When wrestlers met Scooby-Doo last year, I could give that a pass. Scooby-Doo has a long history of teaming up with Batman and Don Knotts. But unsurprisingly, the WWE has already burned up the goodwill I could spare with its new cartoon The Jetsons & WWE: Robo-WrestleMania! available now on Blu-ray and DVD.I blacked out a little bit while watching the trailer but from what I remember the plot seems to involve everyone’s favorite 1960s future family The Jetsons unfreezing famous wrestleman Big Show who then conquers the world with robot drones that had taken over the sport. The Jetsons then recruit good(?) wrestlers from the past like Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins and Alicia Fox to save the future or whatever. It’s the best film featuring the Jetsons and prehistoric savages since The Flintstones Meet The Jetsons.Honestly, the idea of wrestling still existing in The Jetsons’ supposedly utopian future is the most depressing, dystopian idea since Demolition Man or Jason X. This really feels like a Harvey Birdman skit that got out of hand. The saving grace is that the film, the first new Jetsons thing in decades for some reason, was produced by Young Justice’s Brandon Vietti, so at least he’s getting paid before working on a quality cartoon again.This is just the latest example of the WWE extending its tendrils across media. The cabal recently produced that weird schlock Jesus movie starring the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. dude, The Resurrection of Gavin Stone. The Surf’s Up sequel from earlier this year decided it needed to shove wrestlers into its surfing penguin antics. WWE Studios was also behind that Leprechaun reboot from not that long ago. And of course, WWE overlord Mr. McMahon’s wife Linda McMahon works under the administration of famous WWE character “President” Donald Trump because they’re all such obviously great, worthwhile people. Hey, if The Rock “Dwayne” Johnson can break through and become a mainstream charismatic movie star, the WWE will always hope it can pull that off again.So after The Jetsons & WWE: Robo-WrestleMania! what’s the next Mad Lib of a WWE/Hanna-Barbera crossover? WWE vs. Jabberjaw? WWE Meets the Shmoo? A WWE play written by the rebooted gay playwright Snagglepuss?But for real, wrestling is so stupid and pointless! What is wrong with all of you?!?last_img read more

England Protects Marine Life With Blue Belt Expansion

first_imgClose England just made another significant move to help protect marine life. In its widest expansion yet, 41 more locations were added to England’s “Blue Belt.”‘Blue Belt’ ExpansionOn May 31, England’s Environment Secretary Michael Gove announced 41 new Marine Conservation Zones (MCZ) from Cornwall to Northumberland. This means that about 4,633 square miles (12,000 square kilometers) of marine habitat are now protected. That is an area that is nearly eight times the size of Greater London.The move is in line with the government’s commitment to creating a “Blue Belt” of marine protection to protect its own coast as well as overseas territories. Furthermore, it helps build on Britain’s 25 Year Environment Plan, which sets out to improve the environment within a generation. With the current expansion, creatures such as the stalked jellyfish and short-snouted seahorse, and habitats such as blue mussel beds will benefit from the protection. Ads by Amazon ENDS IN Marine Conservation ZonesTo date, there are now 91 MCZs in England waters, the first 27 of which were announced back in 2013. In 2016, 23 more were announced, and the most recent addition of 41 more locations marks the most significant expansion.In total, the United Kingdom now has 355 different types of Marine Protected Areas, covering about 220,000 square kilometers, or nearly double the size of England. In fact, Gove said that England is actually leading the world by protecting 30 percent of the planet’s oceans, but he also noted that there is still more that can be done for future generations.“Today really does mark a major step forward for the conservation of our precious marine environment, but there is still much to be done, including putting in place more of the good practices that we know are needed to secure the long-term health of our seas and their wildlife,” said the Chair of Natural England, Tony Juniper.

airspace over the South China Sea a pair of Chinese fighter jets buzzed it coming within 50 ft (15 m) of the American aircraft in what the Pentagon called an "unsafe" intercept Chinese Foreign

National Institute for South China Sea Studies "If the South China Sea issue is not managed well there will certainly be a confrontation between China and the United States"The notion that controlling a piece of land affords a nation rights over the surrounding sea originates from the imperial age of the 17th century when European powers wanted to monopolize their colonial spoils Freedom of navigation the right to traverse the seas unimpeded flowed from the same rule book But China which began to decay under a waning dynasty was a victim of empire–a narrative that underlines the country’s South China Sea claims and much of its foreign policy For too long imperial powers preyed upon a weakened China stealing away territory–as the British did with Hong Kong–and humiliating its populace Now under President Xi Jinping a resurgent nation is defending what it considers its national patrimony "Islands in the South China Sea have been China’s territory since ancient times" Xi said last fall "The Chinese government must take responsibility to safeguard its territorial sovereignty"China claims nearly all of the South China Sea as its own through maps marked with a U-shaped nine-dash line that dates from 1947 The dotted boundary may have reflected one mapmaker’s impression of China’s historical claims but it did not reflect the geopolitical reality of the mid–20th century Even today Beijing has not clarified in international forums just what the contentious line means Is it just the bits of land and reef with the dashes that the country claims Or is it all waters as implied by official Chinese proclamations about "traditional fishing grounds" close to other nations’ coastlinesDisputed maps though matter less than Beijing’s rapid island-building in the South China Sea Under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea–which China has signed but which the US has not undercutting American authority on the matter–only a naturally formed island that can support human or economic life can justify a claim of an "exclusive economic zone" or EEZ which can extend as much as 200 nautical miles An EEZ is crucial: it grants a coastal nation sovereign rights to all natural resources within those waters though other nations’ vessels are allowed to pass throughBut what recourse is there now that many of the reefs and rocks controlled by China have been turned into weaponized islands In 2013 the Philippine government filed a case with a UN tribunal in the Hague arguing against Beijing’s South China Sea claims A decision from the Permanent Court of Arbitration is expected in the coming weeks further raising regional tensions Beijing though has already said it won’t respect the ruling which will likely at least partly favor the Philippines Nor

invested in the economic development and building of commerce in the region"The US Navy has been a force in the waters of the Asia-Pacific region since 1853 That was the year US Commodore Matthew Perry steamed into a Japanese harbor and used gunboat diplomacy to force the island nation out of its self-imposed isolation Long tilted toward the Atlantic the US soon boasted Pacific holdings like Hawaii Guam and the Philippines which it won as spoils in the Spanish-American War World War II cemented US naval dominance in the world’s largest ocean as the Pacific began to feel like an American lake Of the US’s seven collective-defense treaties around the world five are in the Asia-PacificBorn in Hawaii and partly raised in Indonesia Barack Obama came to office vowing to serve as a Pacific President for a Pacific century While the Middle East refused to release Obama’s foreign policy he presided over a so-called pivot to Asia that included shifting a greater percentage of American troops to the Pacific In 2010 then US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced at a regional forum in Vietnam that the US "has a national interest in freedom of navigation . and respect for international law in the South China Sea" Beijing though views the "rebalance" as the pivot was later renamed as nothing more than American containment by a more polite name "By using the South China Sea to contain China America has turned a regional issue into a global issue" says retired Colonel Liu Mingfu a Chinese military commentator "Too many countries are now involved and that’s dangerous"Defense spending in Southeast Asia has jumped as unease over China grows Last year Indonesia Vietnam and the Philippines were among the 10 countries with the world’s fastest-growing military budgets according to IHS Jane’s the defense publisher "I think other Asian countries have been startled by the speed and uncompromising way with which China is asserting itself in the South China Sea"

a long-standing American military presence is welcoming back US troops even if the country’s President-elect Rodrigo Duterte seems keen to repair economic ties with Beijing In Vietnam–whose communist soldiers repelled US forces decades ago–Obama on May 23 lifted an arms embargo that had been in place since 1984 Though he insisted the decision was "not based on China" few observers agreed "It’s all about China" says Anthony Zinni a retired four-star US Marine general who fought in Vietnam "No matter how much he denies it" Xinhua China’s state news agency concurred: "The United States has come to the belief that [Vietnam] could be suitable to help project Washington’s will over the South China Sea issue"In a May 24 speech in Hanoi Obama was pointed when it came to the South China Sea"Nations are sovereign and no matter how large or small a nation may be its territory should be respected" he said "Big nations should not bully smaller ones" Two months earlier he had cautioned Xi in a meeting against further reclamation in the South China Sea according to US defense officials The warning centered on Scarborough Shoal which is located 185 nautical miles west of Manila the Philippine

China Sea The Chinese are also developing the Dongfeng-21D anti-ship missile which Pentagon officials fear could disable and even sink huge warships like the Stennis As it is half a dozen Chinese soldiers could probably overwhelm Flat Island without breaking a sweat aside from the heat And for all of Obama’s commitment to Asia the White House remained silent for months on China’s reef reclamation "The United States certainly isn’t willing to go to war with China over these rocks and reefs" says Storey "That leaves America with pretty limited options"The Chinese may be willing to adopt a longer perspective even if they take short-term measures like the rare move of denying the USS John C Stennis a Hong Kong port visit in late April "Like the tide that comes and goes none of

state mediaRoger that Boats from the Tanmen militia already had stormed Scarborough Shoal in the run-up to China’s successful takeover In late March around 100 Chinese fishing boats showed up in waters near the Malaysian coastline guarded by a pair of Chinese coast guard ships "Chinese trawlers are in the relevant waters carrying out normal fishing activities" maintained the Chinese Foreign Ministry But not all Tanmen locals agree "It’s not about whether there are enough fish in the area for so many countries to share" says Tanmen fisherman Chen Yiquan who spent a year in a Philippine

Chinese coast guard vessel muscled in to free the Chinese boat from the towline connected to the Indonesian ship The Chinese Foreign Ministry called the waters where the incident took place–off the coast of one of Indonesia’s undisputed islands–its "traditional fishing grounds" "The Chinese government is using these boats as military proxies in the South China Sea" says Bonnie Glaser a senior
