UN envoy calls on Nepalese to turn election delay to their advantage

UN envoy calls on Nepalese to turn election delay to their advantage

Ian Martin, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative, told a press conference in Kathmandu, the capital, that the postponement should not be viewed as a disaster, but as an opportunity for the political parties, civil society and other Nepalese to try to bridge their differences and work more closely together.“This requires dialogue not only among the seven parties [in the interim Government], but with marginalized groups, civil society and all democratic forces,” he said.The elections were to be held on 22 November, but last week the interim Government announced that they were being delayed because of ongoing disputes between the Seven-Party Alliance and the Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (CPN-M).Once elected, the Constituent Assembly will draft a new constitution for Nepal, where an estimated 13,000 people were killed during the decade-long civil conflict that came to a formal end when the Government and the Maoists signed a peace accord late last year.Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the Security Council have both voiced disappointment at the delay and its impact on the political aspirations of the Nepalese.Mr. Martin added today that there needs to be greater cooperation at the local level to ensure more effective governance and public security and reduce communal tensions, a renewed commitment by all to non-violent and democratic political activity, an independent monitoring of peace process commitments, and a concerted effort to address the future of Maoist combatants and the security sector.“The United Nations is playing and will play the roles that are asked of it,” he said, stressing the importance of the Seven-Party Alliance sticking together.Asked by a reporter about who deserved blame for the election postponement, the Special Representative said: “It’s not for the UN to blame anyone and indeed I hope that others, the political parties, will concentrate not so much on deciding who is to blame as on deciding what is to be done now, and, as I said, sustaining their Alliance in order to go forward.”Mr. Martin said he believed “the current crisis has come about… as a reflection of deeper differences in perception and approach, and as a result of weaknesses in the overall management of the peace process.”He cited the lack of progress within the Government in discussing the future of Maoist combatants, ensuring adequate commitments in the cantonments and starting serious talks on security sector reform as all contributing to Maoist concern that the Government is not fulfilling its commitments.The reluctance of the Maoists to ensure that its Young Communist League stops using intimidation and violence is eroding public confidence in the CPN-M’s willingness to enter a democratic process.“Meanwhile, many of Nepal’s traditionally marginalized groups remain concerned that commitments made to them are not being fulfilled. There is frustration by all communities in the Terai, and indeed across Nepal, about the poor state of public security… and without greater cooperation among the parties and civil society at the local level, the risk of communal tension and violence remains considerable.” 10 October 2007Nepal’s political parties should use the delay to the holding of Constituent Assembly elections to bolster the peace process by tackling its weaknesses and agreeing on a road map for ensuring that credible polls can take place, the senior United Nations official in the South Asian country said today. read more

World on the brink of eliminating malaria deaths says UN envoy

World on the brink of eliminating malaria deaths says UN envoy

19 September 2008Leading figures from government, business and civil society will meet next week in New York to highlight how close the world is to ending malaria deaths by the target date of 2015, a goal that the United Nations special envoy for the disease says is clearly within reach. According to a report released by the World Health Organization (WHO) yesterday, progress in malaria control has accelerated dramatically since 2006, particularly in the wake of the Secretary-General’s call for universal malaria control coverage by the end of 2010.“If we accomplish the Secretary-General’s goal then we will be able to bring malaria deaths to near zero by 2015 at the latest,” Ray Chambers, the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Malaria, said in an interview with the UN News Centre.“I’m very optimistic that it will happen sooner than that. We’re on the brink of bringing it under control and eliminating deaths,” he stated, adding that funding, awareness-raising and partnerships, particularly to increase access to bed nets and medicines, have been key to the success achieved so far. Mr. Chambers noted that an “unprecedented” amount of funding is being given to malaria, which kills about 3,000 children every day and claims one million lives every year.“I believe we have the funding, and are likely to have the funding, to complete the Secretary-General’s call for universal coverage by the end of 2010,” he said. On 25 September, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and General Assembly President Miguel D’Escoto Brockmann are convening a high-level gathering to review progress to date, identify gaps and commit to concrete steps to ensure that all countries can achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).The Goals, with a target date of 2015, range from eradicating extreme poverty and hunger, and achieving universal primary education, to reducing child mortality and combating HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases. Mr. Chambers will be hosting a special event that day which will see the announcement of increased funding and additional partnerships to tackle malaria and help achieve the 2010 and 2015 goals. read more

BlackBerry files patent infringement suit against Ryan Seacrest startup

BlackBerry files patent infringement suit against Ryan Seacrest startup

Ryan Seacrest is pictured May 11, 2013, in Carson, Calif. THE CANADIAN PRESS/AP, Dan Steinberg/Invision TORONTO – BlackBerry (TSX:BB) is suing Typo Products, a company co-founded by TV personality Ryan Seacrest, saying that its new iPhone case rips off the famous BlackBerry keyboard.In documents filed in a California court, BlackBerry accused Typo of copying its keyboard design in an effort to capitalize on the smartphone maker’s “commercial recognition and goodwill.”“Typo’s keyboard product has caused and is likely to continue to cause confusion, mistake and deception as to the source of origin of (its) products,” BlackBerry said in the filing.“(It) is likely to falsely suggest a sponsorship, connection, or association between Typo, its products, and its commercial activities with BlackBerry.”Typo Products did not respond to a request for comment and none of the allegations have been proven in court.Seacrest is the host of “American Idol,” as well as the weekly countdown radio show “American Top 40,” and a producer on several television shows. He founded Typo alongside entrepreneur Laurence Hallier, creator and CEO of Show Media, which sells advertising space on taxi cabs in the U.S.The idea for the Typo keyboard was born when its founders noticed their friends were carrying two phones — “one for typing and correspondence and an iPhone for virtually everything else,” the company said on its website.The Typo case runs on a lithium-ion battery and adds about six millimetres in thickness and less than two centimetres in length once it is attached to an iPhone 5 or 5S. The keyboard case substitutes for the touchscreen keyboard.While the case is already available for preorder online for US$99, it will officially debut at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week.BlackBerry’s lawsuit comes as the company moves to protect its keyboard, one of the key differentiators between its smartphone and most other competitors on the market.The lawsuit outlines in meticulous detail the specifics of the keyboard layout and the roots of its current design. It also highlights several industry and analyst reviews that referred to “blatant copying” of the BlackBerry keyboard in Typo’s product.BlackBerry is seeking numerous rulings, including damages from Typo, all of Typo’s profits and a stop to future sales of the keyboard technology.“We are flattered by the desire to graft our keyboard onto other smartphones, but we will not tolerate such activity without fair compensation for using our intellectual property and our technological innovations,” Blackberry chief legal officer Steve Zipperstein said in a release.BlackBerry has been fighting a losing battle for market share against its touchscreen competitors, which include Apple Inc. and phones on the Android operating system. However, its keyboard model has remained popular with many users.A year ago, the company attempted to enter the touchscreen race with gusto by launching the BlackBerry Z10, a device that turned out to be a sales flop.The company has been trying to turn around its operations with a new CEO after posting a $4.4-billion loss in the most recent quarter.On Friday, BlackBerry shares closed down 12 cents at $8.09 on the Toronto Stock Exchange.___For more BlackBerry coverage, follow David Friend on Twitter.

DeepSouth Resources Licence Agreement with Alexander Mining

DeepSouth Resources Licence Agreement with Alexander Mining

first_imgDeep-South Resources has signed a licence agreement with Alexander Mining to acquire a licence for the potential use of Alexander’s proprietary leaching technologies at the Kapili Tepe (KT) polymetallic copper project in the Sivas Province in the northeast/central part of Turkey. The Agreement is conditional on Deep-South completing the acquisition of a 75% equity interest in the Kapili Tepe Project.Earlier in June, Deep-South Resources signed an agreement to acquire from Baltic Investment Group, 75% of the KT project. Furthermore, Deep-South will acquire all the exploration and metallurgical data from Afrasia Mining & Energy Investment Holdings Ltd.The KT project is a copper mineralised altered and brecciated shear zone also containing nickel, cobalt and gold mineralisation. It comprises one Mining Licence and two Exploration Licences, which are contiguous. The licensed area covers approximately 5,240 ha. The Kapili Tepe project is situated within the Tethyan Orogenic Belt of Turkey.Deep-South proposes to delineate a NI 43-101 Compliant Mineral Resource Estimate and then decide on whether to conduct a PEA, which would be followed by a PFS for the estimation of a potential construction of a mine. Both the PEA and PFS work will include investigating a mineral processing plant at KT using Alexander’s leaching technologies.Alexander has granted Deep-South a licence for the potential use of its technologies on amenable mineralised materials sourced from KT and also associated mineral processing technical consultancy services on the following key terms:I. Alexander will receive a royalty of 2.5%. of gross saleable metal products produced from a potential mining operation at KT, if using Alexander’s  leaching technologiesII. Upon completion of Deep-South’s acquisition of the 75% in the Kapili Tepe project and approval from the TSX Venture Exchange, Deep-South shall issue 500,000 common shares to AlexanderIII. For an initial period of 24 months from the start of Deep-South formally committing to a PEA of the Kapili Tepe Project, to be renewed on a mutually acceptable rolling three months’ basis thereafter, a monthly technical consultancy services retainer fee of $7,500, paid in advance.Martin Rosser, Chief Executive Officer, Alexander Mining, said: “Alexander’s interest in the Kapili Tepe project goes back several years and we are delighted that a potential strong new owner is now interested in progressing the project.  We look forward to working closely together with Deep-South on this project, which has significant potential for the use of our leaching technologies.”Turkey is considered as one of the most prospective and mining friendly countries. Recent amendments to the mining legislation and Investment incentive scheme provide value added taxes exemptions, custom duty exemptions, reduced royalty for strategic metals employee income tax relief and 80% tax reduction rate for certain projects depending on thier geographical position within the country. Large companies such as Eldorado Gold, Teck Resources, Inmet Mining, and First Quantum Minerals are operating in Turkey currently.last_img read more

Sachin Bansal heads to Ola board with Rs 650 crore investment

Sachin Bansal heads to Ola board with Rs 650 crore investment

first_imgFlipkart co-founder Sachin Bansal may reportedly sit on the board of taxi-hailing app company Ola Cabs after announcing the completion of Rs 650 crore investment. Ola has confirmed the $92-million investment, which is by far the largest in the company by an individual investor.Bansal, who left Flipkart last year along with co-founder Binny Bansal following a $16 billion buyout by global retail giant Walmart, had invested the first tranche of Rs 150 crore in Ola Cabs last month.The investment forms part of Ola’s Series J funding round that values the Bengaluru firm at around $6.5 billion, the report on the Business Standard website says citing unidentified sources. They confirmed that with this investment, Bansal would be given a board seat in Ola. The investment, the report says, will boost the Bhavish Aggarwal-co-founded firm’s battle against global giant Uber, which is increasing market share in India.An official note of Ola Cabs quoted Bansal as saying: “I have known Bhavish as an entrepreneur and as a friend over these years, and I have great respect for what he and the team at Ola have built in just eight years.” “I am personally thrilled to be part of the Ola journey and I look forward to contributing to their success,” said Bansal, who along with Aggarwal had pushed for policies that protect domestic companies against global competition. The shared the view that global giants like Amazon and Uber were “dumping capital” to win customers in India.However, media reported last year that US retail giant Walmart’s $16 billion investment in Flipkart for buying out about 77 per cent stake prepared the ground of the exit of the co-founders Sachin Bansal and Binny Bansal (no relation) making them billionaires.Sachin Bansal has made investments in many start-ups, apart from Ola. They include electric vehicle maker Ather Energy and artificial intelligence-based medical diagnosis technology developer SigTuple.Bansal has reportedly said of the investment in Ola that the ride-hailing company had emerged as a global force in the mobility space. It also continued to build deeper to meet various needs of a billion Indians, he added.”I personally look forward to learning from Sachin’s journey, his mentorship and guidance, as we look to build one of the most impactful global businesses out of India,” the report quoted Bhavish Aggarwal, chief executive officer at Ola, as saying.Ola Cabs, founded in 2010 by IIT-Bombay alumni Bhavish Aggarwal and Ankit Bhati, has raised an estimated $3.4 billion over 19 rounds from global investors, including SoftBank, Accel, and Tiger Global Management. Ola taxi-hailing app is available in 125 cities and has the affiliation of over a million drivers.last_img read more

Victoria Memorial to unveil sculpture of Mahatma Gandhi on Monday

Victoria Memorial to unveil sculpture of Mahatma Gandhi on Monday

first_imgKolkata: Victoria Memorial Hall is all set to unveil an on–site sculpture installation of Mahatma Gandhi (accompanied by a child) on Monday November 19, as part of its ongoing celebration of the 150th birth anniversary of the Father of the Nation.”The uniqueness of the installation lies in the fact that it has been made entirely out of natural materials like straw, bamboo and clay, not fibreglass, which is preferred by many sculptors. The style is similar to the way in which Durga idols are made. It is our effort to pay tribute to Gandhi’s ideas of toleration, self-reliance and sustainability,” said Jayanta Sengupta, secretary and curator of Victoria Memorial Hall (VMH). Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeAccording to Sengupta, the statue has been inspired by a photograph of Gandhi and a child, taken in the 1940s by Gandhi’s grandnephew Kanu Gandhi. The latter had spent 10 years with Gandhiji during his last days and had captured some wonderful photographs of the quiet, quotidian last ten years of the widely photographed public leader. These photographs, which are more than 40 in number, were discovered in 2015 by the Delhi-based Nazar Foundation, which also brought out an eponymous publication. The VMH had organised an exhibition titled ‘Kanu’s Gandhi’ in March 2016 with these photographs, which was enormously successful. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killed”The sculpture is a reflection of Gandhi’s lifestyle, who believed that the real schooling of a child lies in the experience he gets in contact with his parents and not through formal education in schools. He has always stressed upon parents spending quality time with children, which is lacking these days,” Sengupta said. The installation has been created by noted artist Debanjan Roy and organised in association with the Akar Prakar Art Gallery. The installation will be unveiled by eminent art critic and historian of art Pranabranjan Ray. The event will also mark the beginning of Communal Harmony Week, as well as World Heritage Week, during November 19 to 25. It may be mentioned that over the years, Kanu had taken around 2,000 photographs of Gandhi that have been exhibited worldwide. But interestingly, he did not feature in any of the photographs and led a rather sequestered life. He maintained a reverential distance from the Mahatma and yet kept a close, watchful eye, perhaps standing on the fringes or lurking in a corner.last_img read more

Early contamination system for underground water proposed for Playa del Carmen

Early contamination system for underground water proposed for Playa del Carmen

first_imgPlaya del Carmen, Q.R. — An early contamination detection system for underground water is being proposed to the government of Solidaridad.A water quality monitoring system for various points of the city will be proposed by the Environment Commission during the city’s next session involving the technical committee of the Environmental Sanitation Trust.Gustavo Maldonado Magaña, councilor for the environment trust says, “They are requesting that we have water quality monitoring with a set number of wells in what they call the backbone of the municipality of Solidaridad.“To have a system for early detection of pollution and the type of contamination of the aquifer.”He says the work already presented include technical considerations from two schools, Environmental Sciences and the civil association Centinelas del Agua. Details of the mapping will be presented by the alderman before the technical committee of the Environmental Sanitation Trust during its next meeting.“The cost for each of the wells is about 1,800 peso, although I do not know how many there would be in total. But the investment in one year, including monitoring, was more than 2.5 million peso,” he said.“At a country level, we would be the first municipality to have an early pollution warning system that allows us to make decisions and application of government policies, investment programming or what would be required to mitigate, eliminate and reverse this process,” said Maldonado Magaña.Although he indicated that there are references that the aquifer is already contaminated to some degree, this instrument will allow them to know the source and have an approximation for a solution to the problem.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Telecommunications regulator proposes lifting phone internet rate controls

Telecommunications regulator proposes lifting phone internet rate controls

first_imgCosta Rica’s Telecommunications Superintendency (SUTEL) has proposed the elimination of all regulations on postpaid mobile, mobile internet, and international phone service rates, as soon as December.The telecom watchdog would allow market competition to determine rates, and regulate only the quality of telecom services. SUTEL is recommending this change based on a technical study of the telecom market in the country and current competition levels.If approved, the main change for subscribers would be internet rates for postpaid mobile services. For example, carriers would be allowed to charge for transferred data instead of charging for connection speed.This means that instead of charging a monthly rate, carriers would charge customers for every time they open or send an email, access a website, download an audio or video, or open their Facebook or Twitter profiles.Carriers of mobile internet — Claro, Movistar and ICE-Kölbi — must now charge flat monthly rates for postpaid mobile Internet plans and use data-transfer rates only for pre-paid plans.The 1,175-page proposal is available for download on SUTEL’s website. The agency invites the public to read the document and submit their comments against or in favor of the plan. Interested parties can weigh in on the plan by email at gestiondocumental@sutel.go.cr.SUTEL Marketing Director Walter Herrera said they hope many citizens will participate in this consultation.At the end of next week, agency officials will review all messages received, then draft a recommendation for approval by the agency’s board of directors. If approved, the agency will submit the change to the official newspaper La Gaceta, and it will go into effect a month later.Jaime Palermo, Telecommunications Manager of the state-owned carrier ICE-Kölbi, said the institution is in favor of the proposal. Kölbi is currently the carrier with the largest market share.According to Palermo, SUTEL’s proposal fulfills an obligation SUTEL has toward ICE. He said the deregulation of rates “is necessary to eliminate market distortions and ensure equal competition.”He noted that under current regulations, Kölbi is the only carrier that can be sanctioned for anti-competitive practices, and that it also is forced to comply with a series of regulations that do not apply for other carriers.Lawmakers on watchSUTEL’s proposal sparked reactions at the Legislative Assembly. Some lawmakers have already expressed their concerns about the regulator’s plan.Broad Front (FA) lawmakers were the first to voice their opposition. FA legislator Edgardo Araya earlier this week said deregulating internet rates will limit internet access for large segments of the population.FA’s Jorge Arguedas said SUTEL’s plan contradicts previous rulings from the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court, or Sala IV. He noted that the Sala IV has demanded that SUTEL maintain flat monthly rates for post-paid plans.Arguedas said that under Costa Rican law, internet access is considered a human right.“SUTEL… considers that a human right can be regulated by free market competition,” he said.Growing marketAccording to a SUTEL statistics report from 2015, prepaid users account for 59 percent of Costa Rica’s mobile market. However, postpaid users consume on average almost three times more data than prepaid users.The report states that there are more phone lines than people here. There were 7.5 million mobile phone lines at the end of last year, 7 percent more than in 2014. Costa Rica’s population in 2015 was 4.8 million people, according to the National Statistics and Census Institute.ICE, with 58 percent, has the largest market share of mobile Internet lines, followed by Telefónica’s Movistar with 22 percent, Claro with 19 percent, and Fullmóvil and Tuyo with 1 percent each.
