31 January 2007The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) in Nepal has appealed to all parties in the south-eastern Terai region of the impoverished country to allow safe passage for food convoys, warning that transport strikes and violence have severely disrupted aid deliveries and threaten the health of hundreds of thousands of people, including children. The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) in Nepal has appealed to all parties in the south-eastern Terai region of the impoverished country to allow safe passage for food convoys, warning that transport strikes and violence have severely disrupted aid deliveries and threaten the health of hundreds of thousands of people, including children.Over the last two months, WFP operations in Nepal have been hampered by weeks of strikes limiting the agency’s ability to replenish stocks at distribution warehouses that support food aid programmes to poor people. Security concerns in south-eastern areas, despite the signing of an historic peace agreement last year, have also forced WFP’s implementation partners to suspend food for work programmes.“I appeal to all parties, to ensure safe passage of WFP food convoys and the free and safe movement of WFP staff so we can continue to provide humanitarian assistance to the most vulnerable populations in Nepal,” said the agency’s Nepal Deputy Country Representative, Dominique Hyde. “Disruption of food deliveries and essential services due to repeated transport strikes will cause unnecessary suffering to those who already deal with significant hardship.” He pointed out that during the years of insurgency, despite strikes and political instability, WFP was able to transport enough food aid to continue all of our programmes. “It is unfortunate that during this historic time of peace in Nepal, our humanitarian operations are being disrupted which prevents us from providing an adequate supply of food aid to needy beneficiaries.”The strikes and violence have also limited the ability of WFP field monitors to report on the food security status of thousands of households whose crops have been affected by the drought in the region. In Nepal, nearly 1.5 million people receive WFP food assistance to support their basic food needs. The agency’s programmes include supplemental nutritional support to 64,000 breastfeeding women and their young children, hot mid-day meals to 450,000 school going children, vegetable ghee rations for girls’ families, daily rations to over 100,000 Bhutanese refugees, and supplemental rice rations through food-for-work programmes to over 800,000 people facing food shortages.Also in Nepal, a 10-member team of Afghan experts – from the UN-backed Afghanistan’s New Beginnings Programme (ANBP) – have been supporting the peace deal reached last November between the Maoists and the Nepalese Government by helping train national experts and providing other assistance in monitoring weapons and former combatants involved in the 10-year bloody civil war.Part of the team returned to Afghanistan on Monday and the remainder is expected to leave Nepal in the middle of next month. The ANBP is a project of the UN Development Programme (UNDP) that was created in April 2003 to assist the Afghan Government in implementing disarmament, demobilization and reintegration (DDR).DDR was successfully completed in June 2006 and ANBP is now involved in two security related projects: the Anti Personnel Mines & Ammunition Stockpile Destruction Project and the Disbandment of Illegal Armed Groups.
Peter Power/The Canadian Press Aside from reciprocal tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the U.S., the items to be subject to 10 per cent duties come from a wide range of sectors — from ketchup, to lawn mowers, to playing cards.It’s all part of Ottawa’s plan to strike back at the U.S. in response to hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum, 25 per cent and 10 per cent respectively, imposed last month by President Donald Trump.Freeland billed Canada’s response as dollar-for-dollar countermeasures that are part of a perfectly reciprocal retaliation to what she called the “illegal” and “absurd” tariffs imposed by the Trump administration.“We will not escalate and we will not back down,” Freeland said Friday.“We are perfectly within our rights to respond — I’d also like to point out that Canada has quite intentionally been measured and restrained in its response,” said Freeland, who was joined at the announcement by Trudeau cabinet colleagues Patty Hajdu and Navdeep Bains.There are fears, however, that Canadian tariffs — some of which target businesses in states that are important to Trump and his supporters — could lead to fresh trade action from the U.S.Trump himself has already threatened to slap tariffs on the automotive sector, which could prove far worse for the Canadian economy than the steel and aluminum duties.Freeland, asked whether she feared the U.S. would escalate matters, recalled a public comment she made right before the start of NAFTA negotiations — another tough Canada-U.S. trade file — in which she told Canadians the federal government expected “moments of drama in this process.”“I think that prediction has been borne out,” she said. “I think all of us, at this point, fully anticipate there will be some moments of drama in the future.”The Trudeau government’s decision to stand up to Trump with retaliatory measures has attracted wide support in Canada. But domestic businesses, particularly those in the steel sector, have expressed deep concerns about any escalation in the trade battle.Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs, visited Stelco in Hamilton on Friday, June 29, 2018 where she met with employees in the cold rolling plant and announced the government’s latest efforts in response to U.S. tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum. OTTAWA — The federal Liberal government is taking its cross-border trade dispute with the United States up a notch, unveiling an extensive final list of $16.6-billion worth of American imports that will be hit with retaliatory tariffs this weekend.Ottawa also released details Friday of a financial aid package for industries caught in the crossfire — and it includes up to $2 billion in fresh funding and support for workers in Canada’s steel, aluminum and manufacturing sectors.Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland unveiled the details — including a finished list of U.S. products on Canada’s hit list, which takes effect Sunday — during a news conference at a steel factory in Hamilton.We will not escalate and we will not back downForeign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland More broadly, the effects of the trade fight are expected to hurt both economies, which includes putting jobs at risk and potentially raising consumer prices on both sides of the border.The federal support package includes similar measures to those offered by Ottawa last year in response U.S. duties on softwood lumber products from Canada.For the latest dispute, the government intends to help affected workers by doubling the duration of work-sharing agreements under the employment insurance program to 76 weeks from 38 weeks. The aim is to help businesses retain skilled workers and avoid layoffs during any rough patches ahead.Ottawa is also promising to boost funding for the provinces and territories to increase job and training programs.“In terms of job losses, my message is clear: we stand with Canadian workers and we’re prepared to support Canadian workers if and when that happens,” said Hajdu, the federal labour minister.For companies, Ottawa is promising up to $1.7 billion worth of financing and services for steel and aluminum industries through Business Development Bank of Canada and Export Development Canada.Through its strategic innovation fund, Ottawa is also offering up to $250 million in support in an effort to reinforce the competitiveness of Canadian manufacturers and strengthen the integration of Canada’s steel and aluminum supply chain.Bains, the economic development minister, said the support is aimed at helping firms adjust to the difficult circumstances while enabling them to continue to innovate along the way.The government also plans to invest $50 million over five years to help firms take full advantage of recent trade agreements, including Canada’s deal with the European Union and its membership in the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The ministers reiterated Friday that Canada has taken steps and introduced safeguards to address concerns about diversion and dumping of products into the Canadian market.Last week, U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross expressed concerns about the world’s overproduction and overcapacity of steel, saying the U.S. tariffs against Canada and other allies are designed to force them into action.Freeland has long insisted that Canada introduced stronger safeguards on steel well before the U.S. imposed the tariffs.She said the measures were put in place not only to ensure Canada is a good trading partner, but primarily to protect Canada’s own national interest by keeping Chinese steel and aluminum from being dumped into the market.
Despite a destructive offseason, Lamar Odom may get back on the court in the near future. According to sources close to the situation, The Los Angeles Clippers and Odem met for two hours on Friday at team facilities.Odom has struggled with drugs, a possible divorce from wife Khloe Kardashian, a DUI arrest in August, and was captured on tape destroying a camera man’s equipment. He also struggled on the court last season for the Clippers scoring only 4 points in 19 minutes and 5.9 rebounds.However, sources have stated that Odem looked healthy and was in good spirits during the meeting. There’s no word whether Odem actually signed a contract, but the Clippers do have room on the roster for him.According to Yardbarker, former Clippers head coach Vinny Del Negro gave current head coach Doc Rivers a positive review of Odem as a player prior to his issues going public.Reports have shown that the Lakers also might want in on Odom following his recovery. More details will be posted in the coming week as this story develops but one thing is for sure, Odom seems to have regained his focus and could be back on the court this season.

BlackBerry co-founder Mike Lazaridis is staking his claim over the struggling smartphone maker once again and has increased his stake in the company. According to a securities filing, Mr Lazaridis is considering buying the entire company, after he fired Goldman Sachs and Centerview partners to assist with a strategic review of his 8 per cent stake. He held almost 5.7 per cent at the end of 2012, according to Thomson Reuters data. Mr Lazaridis, who stepped down as co-chief executive and co-chairman of the company in early 2012, has now been working on his project Research in Motion and Quantum Valley Investments, a company that supports quantum physics and computing breakthroughs. BlackBerry put itself up for sale in August after lacklustre sales for its new devices. BlackBerry is apparently in talks with Cisco, Google and Germany’s SAP, among others, about selling them all, or parts of itself. Source: Telegraph Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram
State education officials released, then recalled their plan for how Washington will deal with the new federal education law, the Every Student Succeeds Act.Already facing pressure to give the public more time to review the plan, the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction sent a news release early Monday declaring “changes are coming to education policy in Washington.” It invited the public to weigh in on a 241-page draft of the plan that would set new academic goals for students, outline support for teachers, overhaul the school accountability system and much more.But within about 90 minutes, the superintendent’s office removed the document from its website. A news release sent later in the day blamed a “technical process error.”That excuse didn’t sit well with parents and teachers who, despite the lack of a plan, on Monday attended the first of a series of forums scheduled this month to gather feedback on it.Deputy Superintendent Gil Mendoza, who hosted the Monday event at Highline High School, tried to assure the audience that they soon could access the draft plan again.
At one point during the hourslong discussion on Clark County Commissioner David Madore’s “integrity resolution” on Tuesday, Commissioner Steve Stuart asked Madore if he was seeking “a pound of flesh” after a C-Tran vote didn’t go Madore’s way.“That’s what you want,” Stuart said. “You want your pound of flesh.”The comment was one of the more tense moments during the four-hour meeting of Clark County commissioners. The meeting was intended to be a discussion on Madore’s apologist resolution over a recent C-Tran vote authorizing a funding plan for a potential light-rail line in Clark County.But through the rambling discussion, mostly between Madore, a Republican, and Stuart, a Democrat, the two commissioners clashed over the validity of recent nonbinding advisory votes, past votes taken by Stuart, and Madore’s intentions and statements related to the resolution.The commissioners’ resolution actually in question was presented in a new draft form at the Tuesday morning meeting. In its current state, it is a far cry from the original copy provided by Madore in October that apologized for breaking faith with county residents and declared the county would notify unidentified “authorities” of its own misconduct.In its current form, the resolution mostly states the county disagrees with the transportation project and states it will tell state and federal agencies of its concerns.
SEATTLE — A bitter fight over how much fish people eat — and thus how clean Washington waters should be — has pitted tribes, commercial fishermen and environmental groups against Boeing, business groups and municipalities.The state Department of Ecology appears ready to boost the current fish consumption rate, an obscure number that has huge ramifications for the state because it drives water-quality standards. A higher number means fewer toxic pollutants would be allowed in waters.“So much is at stake,” said Kelly Susewind with the Department of Ecology, adding: “People are worried about what we might do. Are we going to be protective enough? Are we going to drive business out of the state? That ups the ante.”Meanwhile, the regional head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has warned the state that the EPA intends to take over the process if the state doesn’t finalize a rule by this year. And a coalition of environmental groups is asking a federal judge in Seattle to get the EPA to step in and force the state to complete a rule or to do it themselves.The state missed its own March deadline to release a draft rule. With “strong guidance” from Gov. Jay Inslee, the state is still deliberating and may not have a draft rule until later this summer, Susewind said.

Picture taken October 26, 2017.REUTERS/Dado RuvicCryptocurrency exchange Coinbase is in the midst of a turmoil after the U.S.-based firm was slapped with a pair of lawsuits by its consumers for cheating.One of Coinbase’s consumer alleged insider trading by employees at the giant digital currency exchange and the other accused the company of failing to deliver cryptocurrencies to people who didn’t have accounts, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday citing complaints filed in San Francisco federal court.The news comes as digital currency operators around the world are beefing up their security to legitimize themselves as government authorities impose stricter rules.Hacks and scams are endemic to the cryptocurrency space as all the transactions occur online and in an unregulated environment. While digital currency operators are equipped at spotting the more obvious frauds, its getting increasingly difficult to keep a track of cryptocurrencies which are used for drugs and other illicit goods.The complaints by one of the Coinbase customer centers on company’s announcement in December that it would enable purchases of the bitcoin spinoff known as Bitcoin Cash.The customer who sued alleges that employees were tipped off a month in advance, allowing them to instantly swamp Coinbase with buy and sell orders and leaving other traders at a great disadvantage, Bloomberg reported.In the other suit, two men claim that they were unable to redeem bitcoin that had been transferred to them through Coinbase via their email addresses in 2013, the report said.An email sent to Coinbase did not elicit a response till the time of publishing the story.

The content is provided for information purposes only. The scientists, Kim Griest and Agnieszka Cieplak of the University of California, San Diego; Bhuvnesh Jain of the University of Pennsylvania; and Matthew Lehner of the University of Pennsylvania and Academia Sinica in Taipei, Taiwan, have published their study on using the Kepler satellite to detect PBH dark matter in a recent issue of Physical Review Letters.“The nature of the dark matter is one of the biggest unsolved problems in all of science and so an answer would be extraordinary,” Griest told PhysOrg.com. “If it turns out to be primordial black holes, that will be totally fascinating and everyone will want to understand what happened in the early universe to create them. If nothing is found, then we eliminate much of a major contender, but it is not as exciting.”As the scientists explain, PBHs have been considered as a candidate for dark matter since the 1970s. These black holes are thought to have formed during the early universe from density perturbations that may have resulted from a variety of factors, such as inflation, phase transitions, and possibly even the collapse of string loops. Because there is no single theory for how PBHs formed, scientists don’t know how massive they would be. However, previous experimental and theoretical work has eliminated most PBH masses, including almost the entire mass range from 10-18 to 1016 solar masses, the exception being the mass range between 10-13 and 10-7 solar masses. Scientists call these 5 orders of magnitude the “PBH dark matter window.”In the current study, Griest and his coauthors think that Kepler data could potentially rule out a significant portion of this window. Currently, Kepler’s photometer is measuring the light intensity of stars – about 150,000 different stars every 30 minutes. When analyzing the data, scientists look for specific fluctuations in star light, or stellar flux, since a decrease could signal an Earth-sized planet transiting in front of the star. Explore further In their study, the physicists have shown that Kepler’s photometer could also be used to detect small amounts of gravitational lensing, or “microlensing,” which is the bending of star light as it travels through nearby space. According to general relativity, the bending is due to the gravity of an invisible mass that acts like a “lens” and lies between the light source (star) and observer (satellite). This lens could be a PBH or another type of massive compact halo object (MACHO) as well as mini halos, all of which are dark matter candidates.“PBHs are really just one form of MACHOs,” Griest explained. “In the mass range we are sensitive to, I think PBHs are the most likely MACHO, but we won’t really be able to tell if they were instead, say, non-topological soliton objects, which are another form of MACHO.”According to the scientists’ calculations, Kepler could detect microlensing events caused by masses in the range between 5 x 10-10 and 10-4 solar masses, which means it could potentially rule out about 40% of the mass in the PBH dark matter window, if it doesn’t detect anything. If it does detect microlensing events, then of course the implications would be much more exciting: PBHs could be dark matter.“One never really expects to solve such a major problem that has defeated explanation for more than 50 years,” Griest said. “So my skeptical scientist side says, most likely we’ll rule out some parameter space. The searches for particle dark matter at LHC, etc., have so far come up empty handed, so I do think PBHs are becoming more likely as candidates.”Although other microlensing surveys have examined tens of millions of stars over periods of many years, the scientists explain that Kepler can, somewhat surprisingly, provide stronger limits on dark matter in this particular mass range than these earlier surveys. Kepler’s advantages arise from the extreme precision of its photometer, which allows very small magnifications to be detected.Griest and his coauthors have already begun looking at Kepler’s data, which is publicly available. Analyzing the data will not be that simple, since it requires an understanding of the complex light curve data, understanding false positives and background events (such as stellar flares), and using strict selection criteria. Could primordial black holes be dark matter? (PhysOrg.com) — The primary objective of NASA’s Kepler satellite, which was launched in March 2009 to orbit the Sun, is to search for Earth-like planets in a portion of the Milky Way galaxy. But now a team of physicists has proposed that Kepler could have a second appealing purpose: to either detect or rule out primordial black holes (PBHs) of a certain mass range as the primary constituent of dark matter.

Keefe, CFO of Metro Imaging. After making minor adjustments to its staffing and hours of operation, renegotiating service contracts and reducing preventive maintenance sessions, the organization realized it needed to increase volume.”With our strong Merge RIS/PACS environment, we’ve identified opportunities to automate previously manual processes, enhance workflow and increase throughput without adding costs. The system is flexible enough to be customized for our needs, without requiring significant time or expense. We rely heavily on Merge RIS/PACS reporting to secure tangible measures that help improve service and work distribution,” said Keefe. “We’ve done more monitoring of staff productivity than ever, from each individual transcriptionist to how many patients each person has scheduled and checked in. We know when to add staff and move people around.”To help drive volume, Metro Imaging implemented Onsite Results in June 2007. This program lets patients get preliminary results before leaving the imaging center. Metro believes they are the only center in the U.S. offering this type of program. After the first full year of the Onsite Results program, Metro Imaging was able to grow their volume by four percent, without adding any additional radiologists or technologists.”Outpatient imaging is a highly competitive market area. We are constantly evaluating our physician referral base. The information we extract from our RIS/PACS allows us to target marketing efforts and monitor trends closely. We also monitor each site’s workload to evaluate when we need to expand or reduce exam hours, fine-tune staffing, etc. We monitor turnaround time, wait time, and dictation time to trouble-shoot potential bottlenecks. We truly use our Merge RIS/PACS to help manage our business. Our goal is to provide excellent quality and service and our system helps us meet that goal,” said Keefe.Merge offers a white paper titled The Deficit Reduction Act – An Opportunity for Self Analysis at www.merge.comFor more information: www. www.merge.com.

A businesswoman and three employees of a former co-op in eastern Limassol were arrested on Wednesday in connection with loans amounting to over €800,000 given by the lender with collateral from non-existent people.Police arrested a 59-year-old businesswoman, another woman, 62, who was the bank outlet’s secretary and two employees of the branch in question, a 51-year-old man and a 42-year-old woman.The arrests followed a report by the Central Co-operative Bank’s loan processing department, that during an audit of the branch in question, which closed down earlier this year, it emerged that the businesswoman had allegedly received 10 loans amounting to €826,964, between 2002 and 2018. The two employees were allegedly the ones verifying the signatures of those persons, who, it emerged do not exist.The four suspects are to be brought in court on Thursday for remands.
