Maoist army personnel weapons must stay in cantonments – UN envoy to

Ian Martin, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative and the head of the UN Mission in Nepal (UNMIN), met with the country’s independent Election Commission in Kathmandu, the capital, to discuss the effective monitoring of the cantonments through the Joint Monitoring and Coordination Committee.Mr. Martin told election commissioners that the mission had made it clear to the leadership of the Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (CPN-M) that it was a breach of the Agreement on the Monitoring of the Management of Arms and Armies for personnel and/or weapons from Maoist army cantonments to be present at meetings outside the cantonments – including for the purpose of providing leadership security.While UNMIN recognizes the importance of adequate security arrangements for leaders and candidates of all parties, special security arrangements for the Maoist leadership were agreed upon in a signed understanding between the Government and the Maoists.Nepalese voters go to the polls on 10 April to elect members of the Constituent Assembly, which will be tasked with drafting a new constitution for the country. The polls, which have been delayed several times because of political violence, are part of a democratization process following the end of the decade-long civil war, which killed an estimated 13,000 people until the Government and Maoists signed a peace accord in 2006.Meanwhile, 21 Tibetans aged between 15 and 18 climbed into the UN compound in Kathmandu this morning, and then peacefully presented a banner to UN staff with slogans along the lines of “Free Tibet.”After apologizing for entering the compound, the teenagers were given lunch and then taken home, with the UN asking local authorities to not take any action against the children. 28 March 2008The top United Nations official in Nepal today vowed that the world body would play its part to try to ensure that Maoist army personnel and weapons are contained to the agreed cantonments during the current election campaign for the Constituent Assembly. read more

Western Sahara Annan urges attention to humanitarian concerns

In a new report to the Security Council, Mr. Annan underscores the “current low levels of food supply” in camps in the Tindouf area and urges the international community to support efforts by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the World Food Programme (WFP) to assist the refugees. “As the same time, I expect Morocco and the Frente POLISARIO to cooperate without further delay with UNHCR in the implementation of the long overdue confidence-building measures, as repeatedly called for by the Security Council since 1999,” he writes. “The plight of the separated refugee families demands no less.” The report voices concern about some 1,300 prisoners of war currently in detention. “It is my earnest hope that members of the Council will join me once again in urging the Frente POLISARIO to release all remaining prisoners of war without further delay,” Mr. Annan says. “I also hope that both parties will continue to cooperate with the efforts of International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to solve the problem of the fate of all those unaccounted for since the beginning of the conflict.” The Secretary-General expresses hope that the Council will soon decide “how it wishes to proceed with regard to the future of the peace process in Western Sahara.” In a previous report to the Council, Mr. Annan had presented four options to break the present stalemate. The first would have the UN resume trying to implement the 1988 settlement plan, even without the concurrence of the two parties, the Frente POLISARIO and Morocco. The second would have Mr. Annan’s Personal Envoy, James Baker III, try to revise the draft Framework Agreement – again without necessarily gaining the agreement of the parties. The third option would be to mandate Mr. Baker to discuss a possible division of the territory with interested parties, and the fourth would see the Council terminate MINURSO due to the lack of progress. In his latest report, the Secretary-General says Mr. Baker “stands ready to undertake the activities that will be required under the option the Security Council chooses, in order to steer the parties towards a resolution of their dispute over Western Sahara, provided that the Council does not support any changes to options one, two or three that would require the concurrence of the parties” as that would “simply encourage a continuation of the conflict and the current stalemate.” read more

Information committee reaffirms in draft UN must have clear effective voice

Emphasizing the essential role of the Department of Public Information (DPI) in achieving those and other goals, the comprehensive draft, which will be forwarded to the General Assembly for action, calls on the Department to pay attention to all major issues addressed at the 2000 Millennium Declaration and the Millennium Development Goals in carrying out its activities. Speaking at the conclusion of 2003 session of the Committee on Information – which makes recommendations to the Assembly on the policy and activities of DPI – Shashi Tharoor, the Under-Secretary-General for Communication and Public Information, said the Committee’s endorsement of DPI’s structural changes and its guidance at a time of renewal and transformation meant a great deal to him and his colleagues. Under a key provision of the two-part draft, the General Assembly would welcome the steps taken towards restructuring DPI, and encourage Secretary-General Kofi Annan to continue the reorientation exercise and efforts in improving its efficiency and productivity, including through wide-ranging, and innovative proposals.In that connection, the Assembly would welcome the progress achieved since the commencement of the reorientation exercise in enhancing DPI’s performance and effectiveness. It would also welcome the decision to implement an annual programme impact review making self-evaluation a party of the daily work of all programme managers, with a view to institutionalizing performance management. In the section of the text on new priorities for Department, the Assembly would welcome the new structure that include strategic communications services, news services, library services, and outreach services.Regarding the UN’s messages, the Assembly would request the Department to pay particular attention to such major issues as the eradication of poverty, conflict prevention, sustainable development, human rights, the HIV/AIDS epidemic, combating terrorism, and the needs of the African continent. Also by the text, the Assembly would welcome the ongoing efforts of DPI, to enhance multilingualism and emphasize the importance of ensuring the full, equitable treatment of all the official languages in all activities of DPI.Towards bridging the digital divide, the Assembly would welcome DPI’s contribution to publicize the Secretary-General’s efforts to close the digital divide as a means of spurring economic growth and as a response to the continuing gulf between developed and developing countries, and, in that context, would request it to further enhance its role in that regard. Emphasizing that the United Nations information centres, or regional hubs, as applicable, were the “field voice” of DPI, the Assembly would welcome ongoing efforts to review the allocation of both staff and financial resources to the centres, with a view to possibly transferring resources from the centres in developed countries to those in developing countries. Concerning traditional means of communication, the text noted with satisfaction the success of the pilot project on the development of an international radio broadcasting capacity for the United Nations and endorsed the Secretary-General’s proposal that the pilot project be made an integral part of the Department’s activities. read more

John Wall Eyes January Return Return To Relevance

John Wall has missed the entire wretched season so far of the Washington Wizards because of a knee injury. Hurt more has been Wall’s professional pride.The 2010 No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft hardly is mentioned among the top point guards in the league anymore, and that eats at him — and inspires him.“If you look at the list of the point guards of the future, I’m not up there,” Wall told YahooSports. “That gives more motivation to me when I get back to show the NBA what I really have to give to the league. They will respect me again. Everybody will see. I won’t do the talking. I will let my game do the talking.”Wall said based on how he has felt recently (no pain after three consecutive up-tempo workouts) that he should return to the lineup in January. He averaged 16.3 points, eight assists and 4.5 rebounds last year in the lockout-shortened season.As a rookie, he was sidelined a dozen games for knee and foot injuries, but was the MVP of the rookie vs. sophomore challenge during NBA all-star weekend. Sill, he told YahooSports that he played through injuries to not let his team down, but playing injured limited his mobility and put himself at further risk.“There is no reason to force myself back and re-injure myself and have another setback where I don’t start next season or I got to miss next season,” Wall said. “I’m just taking my time.“If I play 20 games, I just go out there and play them. I’m not giving up on my team and they’re not giving up on me. They know I’m working hard to try to get back.”Watching from the bench with a stress injury to his left patella in general and his team struggling (league-worse 3-23)  in particular has been learning for Wall, he told YahooSports.“I always love the game, but you respect the game more when you can’t play,” Wall said. “I have never been injured before seriously. I’m watching every point guard that comes in and what they’re doing and how teams are doing against my team and what I can do when I get back.“When I feel like I can run and do everything like I used to, cut, jump like I used to, run fast like I used to (I will return). And I feel like I am getting closer and closer to those steps.” read more

Le jeu vidéo fait son entrée au grand palais

first_imgLe jeu vidéo fait son entrée au grand palaisDepuis le 10 novembre, l’exposition « Game Story », au Grand Palais à Paris, propose de revivre l’histoire et l’évolution esthétique des jeux vidéo sur les quarante dernières années.Si quelqu’un vous insulte en disant « J’ai parlé à des singes qui étaient plus polis que toi ! » et que vous répondez « Je vois que tu as passé du temps chez tes parents », cette personne est sans doute votre ami et vous avez tous les deux été marqués par Monkey Island 1. En quarante ans d’existence, les jeux vidéo sont devenus une véritable culture, sujet de discussion et de débats. Sa reconnaissance par le reste du monde, par contre, prend plus de temps. L’initiative de Jean-Paul Cluzel, le président de la Réunion des musées nationaux et du Grand Palais, en est d’autant plus appréciable. « La simplicité originelle des carrés noirs et blancs du ‘Pong’ a immédiatement introduit une certaine esthétique », commente Jean-Paul Cluzel. « L’esthétique du pixel inspire les créateurs de jeux, mais aussi des domaines comme le cinéma, l’animation ou même l’art urbain (comme avec l’artiste Invader). »Avec toute l’ironie d’accueillir cet enfant rebelle dans le prestigieux Grand Palais, qui a plus d’un siècle !  « Le jeu vidéo est une forme d’esthétique évidente de notre temps, d’où cet accueil au Grand Palais”, poursuit le directeur du musée. “Il ne s’agit pas de le panthéoniser. »Les visiteurs peuvent jouer avec 80 jeux, consoles et ordinateurs, datant des années 70 à nos jours. Interactive, elle évoque les univers, séries, genres et styles graphiques qui lui sont associés. Loin des clichés de jeux vidéo violents, l’exposition vise autant les nostalgiques que les curieux, les gamers autant que les néophytes. « Le cheminement historique de l’exposition permet de bien comprendre cette industrie culturelle qui “a acquis, avec son croisement avec l’art, une authentique dimension créative », selon le ministre de la Culture, Frédéric Mitterrand.À lire aussiJouer à Tetris pourrait aider à soigner les yeux paresseux« Le jeu vidéo est un domaine nouveau dans l’art qui suscite la polémique, un peu comme un Murakami à Versailles”, reprend Jean-Paul Cluzel. “Le cinéma n’a acquis sa qualité de septième art qu’à partir d’une accumulation de chefs d’œuvres reconnus. Je ne considère pas “La Sortie de l’usine Lumière à Lyon” comme de l’art, et pourtant le cinéma a évolué comme une forme d’art majeure XXe et du XXIe siècle », explique-t-il. « Ce sera la même chose pour le jeu vidéo. »Game Story, au Grand palais.  (lien non disponible)Ouverture tous les jours de 12h à 22h. Fermé le mardi, le 25 décembre et 1er janvier. Fermeture à 18h les 24 et 31 décembre.Le 15 novembre 2011 à 12:24 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Outgoing Reed Elsevier CEO We Should Have Moved Earlier on RBI Sale

first_imgA week before officially stepping down as chief executive of Reed Elsevier, Sir Crispin Davis said the London-based science and medical publisher should have put its b-to-b publishing unit, Reed Business Information, on the block about a year earlier than it did.“In retrospect, we should have moved earlier but we really didn’t think we could sell both education and RBI well at the same time,” Davis said in an interview with the Financial Times. “If we’d known that this downturn was going to happen, we may have said it was worth the risk.”Reed sold Harcourt Education businesses to Pearson and Houghton Mifflin Riverdeep Group in 2007. It put RBI up for auction in February 2008 but took it off the block late last year, citing the down global markets. Reed was hoping that proceeds from the sale of RBI would help offset the company’s $4.17 billion purchase of ChoicePoint, a risk analytics business. Bids for RBI were said to have fall from approximately $2 billion to $1 billion.At the time, Reed said it would reconsider a sale “in the medium term,” when market conditions become “more favorable.” In his interview with the Financial Times, Davis said RBI is still “marked for sale.”Ian Smith, former CEO of British construction, facilities management and engineering services firm Taylor Woodrow, will succeed Davis as CEO next week.last_img read more

State studies how to clean up 4000gallon fuel spill

first_imgAn estimated 4,329 gallons of diesel fuel leaked out of the forward compartment of a 10,000-gallon fuel tank that overturned when the driver wrecked on Jan. 10 around milepost 164.4 of the Richardson Highway, about 20 miles south of Paxson. No fuel leaked from a 5,000-gallon secondary “pup trailer” that the double-tanker truck was also pulling.(Photo: Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation)Officials with the state Department of Environmental Conservation and a Fairbanks-based trucking company are still assessing the extent of a recent fuel spill along the Richardson Highway south of Paxson. Officials with the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation said it looks like diesel from a Colville Transport tanker crash has seeped into the road bed.Listen nowDEC officials say workers with Colville Transport and its cleanup contractor have removed less than 500 gallons of diesel fuel from an area along the Richardson Highway near Meiers Lake, where the Colville tanker truck crashed Jan. 10, spilling 4,329 gallons of diesel.The contractor also removed about 120 cubic yards – or about 10 dump-truck loads – of diesel-contaminated snow, vegetation and soil from the area. But DEC officials believe most of the diesel soaked into the roadbed and the ground below. So they say not much more can be done until Colville brings in equipment to drill samples around the area to find out how far the diesel spread underground.“Right now, we’re just figuring out the complete impact area,” Ashley Adamczak said. Adamczak is an environmental program specialist with the DEC’s Fairbanks office. “Once we have a better understanding of the subsurface, then we can start to make a lot of those decisions.”Colville responders cleaned up as much free-standing diesel fuel as possible – less than 500 gallons – around the spill site by using absorbent pads and lined containment enclosures. (Photo: Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation)Adamczak said the federal Bureau of Land Management has approved the state’s request to excavate contaminated material from land the BLM administers alongside that stretch of the highway. And she said the state Department of Transportation has OK’d a request to remove tainted material from its right-of-way. But she said DEC wants more information before giving the go-ahead for either operation.“Once we get that information, then we have some options on how to move forward, Adamczak said. “One of which is to do removal outside the right-of-way, to remove any contamination in the BLM land.”DEC officials say it’s been tough to get much done over the past couple of weeks due to a lack of space to operate around that narrow, hilly stretch of the highway, and because of heavy snow, cold weather and traffic related to the Copper Basin 300 sled-dog race. Adamczak said any excavation of the roadway itself probably won’t be done until warmer weather arrives.“We would not do any excavation within the DOT right-of-way until the summer, when we don’t have to worry about causing a hazard along the road,” Adamczak said.DEC officials say that kind of an operation will require closing both lanes of the highway to allow equipment to excavate contaminated material. The officials say the agency will submit a plan to control traffic during the operation. But a Transportation Department spokesperson said the agency doesn’t yet have enough information on the proposal.The Transportation Department’s Commercial Vehicle Enforcement office is investigating the wreck. And Adamczak said Colville will have to pay all costs associated with the cleanup.last_img read more

John Lennons Last Car to be Auctioned alongside Paul McCartneys Mini Cooper

first_imgWhoever is heading to the 11th Annual Auburn Auction in Indiana on September 1st this year, will have the chance to not only buy a car but also take with them a genuine piece of rock history. This can especially be a win-win for vintage car aficionados who also happen to be great fans of the legendary British rock band, the Beatles. According to an announcement by Worldwide Auctioneers, which is hosting the September auction, two of the vehicles they are offering had once belonged to music icons John Lennon and Paul McCartney respectively. The cars are also offered entirely without reserve.One of the auctioned models is the last car John Lennon ever purchased, a 1979 Mercedes-Benz Turbodiesel Estate Wagon. Along with it, is a customized Morris Mini Cooper, owned by Sir Paul McCartney.John Lennon (left) and Paul McCartney (right) in 1964.According to Mercedes-Benz, John Lennon’s last vehicle purchase also counts as the first Mercedes-Benz 300TD Estate Wagon model which was consigned and shipped to the United States, on Lennon and his family’s demand.Documentation that this was the last car Lennon owned is abundant. The car gets multiple mentions in the book by Frederic Seaman, The Last Days of John Lennon: A Personal Memoir, saying that the Benz was a personal means of transportation to Lennon.More documentation related to the model includes a copy of the original Data Card provided by the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center, according to Worldwide Auctioneers.John Lennon singing Give Peace a Chance. Photo by Roy Kerwood CC BY 2.5Lennon picked his Benz roughly two years before he was murdered in front of his apartment building in New York. The wildest of years as a Beatles member were well behind Lennon at this point, as he was largely living a more family-orientated life.Before the Benz arrived, the music icon used a green 1972 Chrysler Town and Country station wagon, not in the best shape possible though. As a Lost and Found episode which originally aired on History Channel in December 2000 tell us, it was Lennon’s personal assistant, Frederic Seaman, who suggested it was high time he bought a new vehicle.Lennon and Ono in 1980, shortly before his murder. Photo by Jack Mitchell CC BY-SA 4.0Accordingly, Lennon and his spouse Yoko Ono opted for the Mercedes-Benz 300 TD Wagon. The vehicle at this point was still not available in the U.S., but it was a manageable issue for someone with a superstar profile. For the sum of reportedly $30,000 (that would roughly amount to $90,000 in today’s money), the music legend expedited the model, shipped to him by the automobile maker from Europe to the States.Ironically, the first model of this car to arrive in America is now remembered as Lennon’s final car purchase. The Benz was parked in Lennon’s apartment building garage the night of December 8, 1980, as he was approached by his killer, Mark David Chapman. It remained in the possession of John Lennon’s family for six more years after his death.10 Most Expensive Cars Sold At AuctionThe Benz model appears to be in a great shape.

And as of most recently, it has resided at the Classic Car Museum in Sarasota, Florida, the same museum which also supplies the Paul McCartney’s 1965 Morris Mini Cooper S De Ville, for the same auction.The Cooper was custom built for McCartney and is reportedly one of only four such customized Minis that were provided to the Beatles.
