Security Council delegation to conduct fivenation tour of Africa

The delegation will start its 10-day mission in Djibouti, where talks are being held between representatives of the Government and the opposition in neighbouring Somalia, a United Nations spokesperson told reporters today.The Council members then head to Sudan for three days of talks with Government officials in Khartoum and a visit to El Fasher, the capital of North Darfur state and the headquarters of the hybrid UN-African Union peacekeeping force (UNAMID) to the troubled region.The delegation travels next to N’Djamena, the capital of Chad, for a two-day visit that will also include a trip to the far east of the country to tour camps for refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) near the town of Goz Beida, which is close to the border with Darfur.On 7 June the delegation is scheduled to arrive in the Congolese capital, Kinshasa, for discussions with the country’s leadership and civil society and the UN peacekeeping mission (known as MONUC).The group is expected to also visit Goma, the main town in North Kivu province in the far east of the DRC, which has experienced continued violent unrest since the official end of the civil war.The last stop on the trip will be Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire’s commercial capital, for meetings with key figures in the implementation of the Ouagadougou peace agreement, reached last year to end the protracted political stand-off in the West African country between the Government and the rebel Forces Nouvelles. 28 May 2008A Security Council delegation will this weekend begin a five-country visit to Africa to obtain a first-hand assessment of the crises engulfing Somalia, Sudan’s Darfur region and neighbouring Chad and to help with efforts to promote peace and reconciliation in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Côte d’Ivoire. read more

Barrick reaches deal to share profits with Tanzania on Acacia tax row

Barrick reaches deal to share profits with Tanzania on Acacia tax row

TORONTO — Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX) says it has reached a new partnership deal with the government of Tanzania to settle a tax dispute with its majority-owned Acacia Mining plc that will include profit sharing and a $300 million payment.The company says it signed a framework with Tanzania Thursday that outlines the path to set up the structure, which will include sharing on a 50-50 basis the economic benefits of Acacia Mining’s three gold mines in the country.Barrick says the two sides have also agreed to form a working group to resolve the outstanding tax claims, and as a gesture of good faith Acacia would make the $300 million payment.The deal, still subject to approval by Acacia, is the outcome of months of talks after the Tanzania government handed London-based Acacia a US$190-billion tax bill in July, alleging the 63.9-per-cent Barrick-owned company owes that much in back-taxes and penalties.Tanzania had also imposed an export ban on concentrated gold and silver in March, which Barrick said at the time could impact about six per cent of its estimated 5.3 million- to 5.6-million ounces of gold production for the year through Acacia’s mines.Acacia Mining’s share price was up almost 18 per cent on the London Stock Exchange following the news, while Barrick’s share price had ticked up half a per cent on the Toronto Stock Exchange by late morning. read more

Silver Lake rescue will be a team effort

Silver Lake rescue will be a team effort

Port Dover has been put on notice that Norfolk will want help if Silver Lake is to be restored.The new Norfolk council may be in a position to repair Misner Dam, Mayor Kristal Chopp said Tuesday.However, the mayor added there is no point in doing so if Silver Lake remains at its current level in its current condition.Raising the water level to where it was 10 years ago is not an option.Doing so would require an expensive, time-consuming environmental assessment with no guarantee of success. Port Dover residents are opposed to that, Port Dover Coun. Amy Martin told council Tuesday.That leaves dredging to a depth that improves water quality while facilitating recreational activities such as rowing.Mayor Chopp suggested this goes hand-in-hand with a dam repair and – as such – will require a financial commitment from the Friends of Silver Lake and others in Port Dover who want the mill pond restored to its former place of prominence.“There is a lot of public pressure to get this resolved,” Chopp told council. “But we’ve only been here for two months.“I’m not prepared to have this conversation one year or two years from now to have the county responsible for dredging Silver Lake.“Silver Lake is not going to change just by repairing the dam. There is more work to be done.”Chopp suggested decommissioning the 100-year-old dam may be the best solution if a community commitment to dredging is unavailable.Were that to happen, the Lynn River in the area of Silver Lake would revert to a cold water stream. The Silver Lake basin could then be cultivated as a nature park similar to the former Sutton’s Pond in Simcoe.Stop logs were removed and Silver Lake was lowered nearly three feet 10 years ago over concerns about concrete deterioration at the top of the dam. The Ministry of Natural Resources has since said that it will not allow water levels to rise even if Norfolk moves forward with a repair.Dredging is the preferred solution of the Port Dover Waterfront Improvement Committee. The improvement committee will present a report at the Feb. 19 council meeting on what it and its associates are prepared to do to help the project along.Key to any dredging initiative is money to pay for it and MNR permission to do so.Marion Gadsby, vice president of the waterfront committee, has calculated a rough estimate of dredging costs and a strategy for upkeep and maintenance involving silt traps at select locations.MNR and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans have strict rules about disturbing fish habitat during spawning season but otherwise seem amenable to dredging Silver Lake,“I’ve talked to them on a one-on-one basis,” says Judy Malpass of Friends of Silver Lake. “They say when you get things legally done, we will help you.”MNR has not committed to dredging. However, Gadsby noted that the former Silver Lake Rowing Club had a dredging permit in hand before it disbanded about 10 years ago.“Everyone  knows what we have to do,” Malpass said. “It’s that group in there (council) that has to give its approval. Fix the dam. Get on with it. We’ll look after raising the money.”Following years of debate, deputations and engineering studies, Norfolk council was poised to approve a repair last summer. That repair includes boring down through the dam and pinning it to the underlying bedrock.In a surprise development, Norfolk council voted 5-4 last June against accepting a tender in the amount of $2.1 million.There was no explanation for the vote other than councillors who seemed in favour previously apparently got cold feet.MSonnenberg@postmedia.com read more

Negotiators at UN talks in Bali work to resolve differences over financing

Negotiators at UN talks in Bali work to resolve differences over financing

Government representatives negotiating a draft action plan for adoption at the upcoming World Summit on Sustainable Development were working to resolve differences over financing and trade issues, United Nations officials said today as preparations for the forum entered its second and final week in Bali, Indonesia.A senior UN official with the Summit secretariat said that some of the issues that continued to be negotiated – such as financing, trade and the launching of new programmes – were interlinked, so a new version of the draft document was put together over the weekend to incorporate all the cross-cutting issues into one package.The sticking points facing delegates were similar to the ones faced at the end of last week, including various aspects of the means of implementation of Agenda 21, such as trade and finance, Lowell Flanders told a press briefing in Bali.Meanwhile, “fairly good progress” had been made on the issues of oceans and energy, he added, and most countries had it in mind to complete negotiations on the text in Bali rather than hold them over until the Summit, which will convene from 26 August to 4 September in Johannesburg, South Africa.As for the upcoming ministerial segment of the preparatory session, which will begin Wednesday, Mr. Flanders said that the ministers would be focusing their attention on discussing another major Summit output – the political declaration. The ministers, he added, might also take up some of the political questions underpinning the implementation programme. read more

Deadline looms for federal governments decision on Northern Gateway pipeline

Deadline looms for federal governments decision on Northern Gateway pipeline

VANCOUVER – Some time in the next 10 days, the federal government is supposed to announce its final decision on the Northern Gateway pipeline — the multibillion-dollar political minefield dividing the West.Even detractors expect the federal government to give the $7-billion project the go-ahead.But the nod from Ottawa would not be the crest of the mountain Northern Gateway must climb before the oil — and the money — begin to flow. The path to the British Columbia coast has many hurdles left for Calgary-based Enbridge (TSX:ENB) and its partners.A joint review panel of the National Energy Board and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency recommended approval of the project six months ago, subject to 209 conditions.“The bottom line is there are 113 conditions that need to be met before construction can begin. That’s going to take a lot of time,” said company spokesman Ivan Giesbrecht.If approved, that would be merely one more step in an ongoing process, Giesbrecht said.“We have a lot of work to be done before we would be able to begin construction.”There are also the five applications before the Federal Court for judicial review of the federal panel recommendation, and further court challenges are likely.The opposition of environmental groups was always a given. Expansion of Alberta’s oil sands has become an international target for climate activists.“Approval seems obvious. At the same time, opposition is so strong,” said Nikki Skuce, a resident of Smithers, B.C., and a campaigner for the environmental group Forest Ethics Advocacy.“It’s going to be caught up in the courts for years and it’s going to be ugly on the ground. People are willing to do what it takes.”That is no idle threat in a province that saw a decade-long War in the Woods over logging of old growth forests, which ended with new government regulations.And opposition is not limited to environmentalists and First Nations.Another crippling blow to the project came from the residents of Kitimat — the B.C. city with the most to gain as the pipeline terminus — when they voted to reject the project in a non-binding plebiscite.Kitimat is no stranger to industry, born of an aluminum smelter in the 1950s, but for a majority of those who voted the risks outweigh the rewards.Even the provincial government officially opposed the project at review hearings.Victoria appears poised to reverse itself, deploying key ministers to a flurry of recent federal announcements on marine and pipeline safety. But the Liberal government may be waiting to see which way the political wind is blowing before they change direction.“There’s a question of whether going along with the approval of the Northern Gateway pipeline will make LNG development in B.C. more challenging by angering First Nations so adamantly opposed to the oil sands pipeline,” said George Hoberg, a professor at the University of British Columbia’s school of forestry and founder of UBCC350, a group pressing for action on greenhouse gas emissions.There is deep resistance in B.C., he said.“I think it’s likely to be approved, but I would not be shocked if it was delayed or even denied,” Hoberg said.The product that the pipeline would carry is a hurdle.The pipeline west would transport molasses-like diluted bitumen. Studies and previous spills have found that dilbit sinks in turbulent water conditions.Opponents like Art Sterritt, director of Coastal First Nations, have said a tanker spill is possible — even likely — and cannot be cleaned up. His coalition of nine aboriginal communities remains vehemently opposed.The greatest obstacle is the unflagging opposition of First Nations. Hamstrung by the federal government’s failure to negotiate treaties in decades of talks, the company has been left in a legal limbo.The company said the project has 26 aboriginal equity partners and consultations continue but Clarence Innis, acting chief of the Gitxaala Nation on the North Coast, said they haven’t heard from anyone and no talks are planned.“We’re going to do whatever we need to do to protect our territory,” said Innis, whose community is located on an island at the mouth of the Douglas Channel.The Gitxaala are already preparing a legal challenge.“We played by the rules,” Innis said. “We’ve been ignored.”The fight is far from over on either side. There are hundreds of billions of dollars at stake, the company has said.“It’s in the national interest to be able to diversify the markets that we have for our most valuable natural resource,” Giesbrecht said.“We believe the project is the right thing for Canada, we’ve felt that way right from the very beginning and that’s why we’ve pursued it.Follow @ByDeneMoore on Twitter Deadline looms for federal government’s decision on Northern Gateway pipeline AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Dene Moore, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 8, 2014 10:00 am MDT read more

Homes to be repossesed

Homes to be repossesed

first_imgGreece’s coalition leaders have agreed to allow banks to foreclose on some homes from next year but under criteria that will see no more than 15,000 properties repossessed because owners are not able to keep up with repayments.Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and Deputy Prime Minister Evangelos Venizelos agreed to move forward with plans that will see a moratorium on foreclosures, which was introduced in 2009 and renewed each year after that, being partially lifted. The ban applies to primary residences worth up to 200,000 euros.Under the plans discussed at the meeting, in which Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras and Development Minister Costis Hatzidakis took part, only 2 percent of homeowners who have been protected from repossessions so far would be affected by the change.Sources told Kathimerini that in cooperation with Greek banks, the Finance Ministry will be able to pinpoint which homeowners have been taking advantage of the moratorium by splitting larger mortgages into ones that are smaller than 200,000 euros and into other types of loans in order to avoid having their property seized. The ministry will also check on what deposits homeowners have and whether they are genuinely unable to meet their monthly repayments.It is estimated this will lead to 12,000 to 15,000 homes being repossessed and auctioned off, while the remaining 98 percent of properties will enjoy protection for another year.“The main residences of socially vulnerable citizens and those who cannot pay their loans because of the crisis will be totally protected,” said Samaras after the meeting, without revealing details of what the government is planning. “This is not under negotiation, period.”Venizelos said few people would be affected by the decision to foreclose on some homes.“The information I have shows that there is not a problem,” he said. “There are very few tricksters, who without really being vulnerable have hidden behind those who need protection,” said the PASOK leader.Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Geek Pick Volante Design Hacker Jacket

Geek Pick Volante Design Hacker Jacket

first_imgStay on target Geek Pick: Shure MV88+ Is An Excellent, On the Go Microphone KitGeek Pick: Amazon Smart Plug Puts Alexa in Your Walls If you’ve been to a big comic or gaming con lately, you’ve probably seen some dope fashion. I don’t mean cosplay, I mean fashion. You can look rad and still keep true to whatever geek you want to be, and that’s where Volante Design’s Superhuman Streetwear comes in.Superhuman Streetwear is a line of fashion-forward (like, 2099 forward) outerwear and other gear inspired by video games and the cyberpunk aesthetic. Their clothes are unique, recognizable (without looking directly like cosplay of any one game or movie), and hand-made in the United States. And they sent us a few samples of their work, starting with the men’s Hacker jacket.The Hacker jacket is a double-breasted canvas jacket that looks like something out of Watch_Dogs or Deus Ex. Volante Design calls it “moto-style,” and I can see it with the short, wide lapels and prominent zipper. They sent the Solar Eclipse version, which is all-black canvas with white thread, but there are six other versions with different color combinations, including contrasting accents on the arms and back.This is a great look, and the simple, free sizing consult I got through their web site paired me with a jacket with a great fit (size 47). The jacket looks best with the zipper halfway down to show off the lapels, but it can also zip all the way up the right side and work with snapping the collar shut around the neck to make a Rocketeer look. I prefer biker hacker, but it’s a great alternative for wearing it.The jacket is made extremely well. The canvas is durable and relatively thick without feeling stiff or weighty, with a dark gray fabric lining on the inside. The stitching is excellent, with even lines that don’t look remotely close to fraying or loosening. It’s one of the benefits of getting a jacket that was made in America by a small boutique instead of an overseas sweatshop.That quality comes at a price, though. Like most good fashion that’s hand-made in the United States, Volante Design’s clothes are pretty expensive. The Hacker is $295. It’s still less than a comparable Ralph Lauren or London Fog jacket at retail price. And it looks cooler than that painfully dull “conventional” fashion without making you look like you’re in cosplay all the time. Also, it’ll probably last longer than something you get at Target.Volante Design/Superhuman Streetwear has some great style to explore, especially if you want something with a near-future edge without going full-on Hackers or Max Headroom. Check it out, and if you want some less expensive threads or accessories, check out our looks at casual spywear, scoundrel fashion, and the amazing things you can get at Hot Topic.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

2016 Iron Dog Race projected to be faster and riskier

2016 Iron Dog Race projected to be faster and riskier

first_imgDownload AudioThe 2016 Iron Dog Snowmachine Race gets underway this weekend.  The ceremonial start in downtown Anchorage begins Saturday morning, and then the green flag officially drops at the Big Lake starting line on Sunday at 11 am.Joe Cleaver and the team’s snowmachines on a recent training run near Puntilla Lake. (Photo courtesy of Bobby Frankson)Iron Doggers are expecting a better trail than last year.A lack of snow on the north slopes of the Alaska Range and Farewell Burn presented a big challenge to racers last year, prompting many racers to add supplemental radiators or fans to their machines to prevent overheating.  Even then, the racers were forced to reduce speed and travel as a pack over more than 50 miles of bare ground.But this year, despite Alaska’s below-average snowfall totals, the trail appears to be snow-covered for almost all of its 2000 mile length from Big Lake to Nome and then to Fairbanks.Iron Dog Executive Director Kevin Kastner is expecting a fast race.“ Once you get past Skwentna and up to Shell Lake it gets better and better, and even sections out of Rohn and over the [Farewell] Burn are about as fast as they’ve ever been,” Kastner said. “The prediction is for a fast race, and a fast race can also mean more accidents.  So we are hoping that they keep it under control.  But so far, so good, and the overall trail should be a good one.”  Like last year, the usual race trail on the Yukon River between the Kaltag and Galena checkpoints will need to be rerouted due to open holes around Koyukuk.  Iron Doggers will take the overland portage trail on the north side of the river between Koyukuk and Galena.That area is the home turf of Iron Dog Team 27 – Bobby Frankson and Joe Cleaver.  They’ve entered the race twice before as partners – in 2006 and 2009 – but have never finished.Speaking from the safety inspection in Anchorage on Wednesday, Frankson said that the week before the race is a relentless push to get ready.“Countless hours of turning wrench and dialing in,” said Frankson. “I drove into Anchorage at 4 o’clock in the morning and got up at 7.  And here I am at the Expo, and apparently I am not the only one.”  41 teams are signed up in the competitive Pro Class , and 7 more are in the non-competitive Recreational Class.Polaris is the most popular make of snowmachine in the race, with 19 teams signed up.  Ski-Doo is second with 12 teams.  Eight teams are riding Arctic Cats and only two have chosen Yamaha.Polaris machines have crossed the finish line first two years in a row, and five out of the last seven years.A first place prize of $65,000 is up for grabs as part of a $260,000 purse.   The winning team is expected to arrive at the finish line in downtown Fairbanks around noon on Saturday the 27th.last_img read more

HC dissatisfied with city corporations measures for fighting dengue

HC dissatisfied with city corporations measures for fighting dengue

first_imgHigh courtThe High Court on Sunday expressed dissatisfaction over measures taken by the two city corporations of capital Dhaka to prevent Dengue menace.A bench of justice FRM Nazmul Ahasan and KM Quamrul Kader expressed the view during the hearing of a suo moto case after the government prosecutors presented a progress report on the measures taken by the authority to prevent dengue.The court said responsible people of two city corporations did not take preventive measures in time. If steps had been taken, the current situation would have been prevented.People who were on duty to monitor the situation did not perform their duties properly. They lack proper temperament and skills, added the court.Deputy attorney general ABM Abdullah Al Mahmud Bashar and assistant attorney general Saiful Alam represented the state.During the hearing, the court asked the state counsels about differing kinds of statements regarding the number of people who died of dengue.ABM Abdullah replied saying according to the government 48 people died of dengue. People who died of dengue so far might have some other diseases. Some may suffer heart attack, he offered as an example. So it is a matter of scrutiny, he contended on behalf of the state.In response, the court said dengue is now spreading across the country. If the preventive measures were taken in due time, so many people would not have died.About medicine (insecticide), the court said the same medicine is being sprayed year after year without any test. Now the medicine is not working. Repeated use of a medicine made the mosquitoes develop tolerance, which has to be understood, the court said.However, while presenting the progress report, the DAG said the government has been very sincere to prevent dengue outbreak. Vacations were cancelled in all government hospitals. Customs duty has been exempted for importing medicine from abroad. Three surveillance teams have been formed. Hospitals that disobey government directives have been fined through mobile courts. Mobile courts were conducted in a total of 40 hospitals. The drive will continue.The court concluded without giving any ruling on the matter.last_img read more

Chrome Scan files with Metadefender before you download them

first_imgChrome: Scan files with Metadefender before you download them by Martin Brinkmann on February 28, 2017 in Google Chrome – Last Update: February 12, 2017 – 5 commentsMetadefender for Chrome is a free browser extension for Google Chrome that you can use to run security scans on files before downloading them.Metadefender is a popular malware analysis service that scans files that you upload to it against more than 40 different antivirus and threat detection engines.It works in this regard like Virustotal, but adds a couple of extra options to the process. Apart from the 140 Megabyte per file upload limit — Virustotal’s maximum size for files is set to 128 Megabyte — it is extracting files and listing all files of the archive.Even better, Metadefender will scan each file of an archive individually to display results for each after the scan and analysis completes.Metadefender for ChromeMetadefender for Chrome makes the whole process more comfortable. You can right-click on any file that is directly linked on public Internet sites to have it scanned by Metadefender directly.That’s better than having to download a file first, going to the Metadefender website, uploading the file to the service, and waiting for it to be processed.The one caveat is that it works only with files that are linked directly. If a site uses JavaScript or other means to protect files from hotlinking, you will get scan errors when using the extension.You may still use the manual method then to have it scanned by Metadefender though.The extension works as you’d expect it to. You right-click on any directly linked file and select the “scan with Metadefender before downloading” option from the context menu.The Metadefender site is opened in a new browser tab if the process works. If it does not, you get a notification in Chrome that something went wrong. While you can try again, you will probably have to scan it manually as it is likely that trying repeatedly won’t work either.The results are identical to the ones that you get when you upload files manually to the service. Metadefender lists the score at the top, and information about the file, and if it is an archive, the files it contains on that page.File information include hashes, and options to look at scan results for each extracted file of archives individually.Metadefender for Chrome installs in Firefox if you follow this guide, but it does not work right now as you will run into scan errors when you try to use it.The extension adds an icon to the Chrome toolbar that you can use to open your scan history. This opens a page on the Metadefender website that lists all file scans that initiated from the Chrome extension.Closing WordsThe browser extension is quite useful if you download files regularly from sites that link to them directly. If you don’t, or if the download sites that you are using use scripts to block direct links to the downloads, then you won’t be able to make much use of Metadefender for Chrome.Summary12345 Author Ratingno rating based on 0 votes Software Name Metadefender for ChromeSoftware Category BrowserLanding Page https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/metadefender-for-chrome/fjampemfhdfmangifafmianhokmpjbcj/related Advertisementlast_img read more

Party time in Vegas with STUBA

Party time in Vegas with STUBA

first_imgParty time in Vegas with STUBA Source = STUBA We all know Las Vegas. Famous for the biggest hotels, the brightest signs and sometimes even the cause of strange memory loss. But aside from the fascinating history of this hot and sandy desert, and the amazing hotels, there is actually plenty to do and see both on and off The Strip.Day Trip to the Grand Canyon: Even if your clients have plenty of time, don’t take the bus…do yourself a favour and go by helicopter. You’ll see more, and its an easy 45 min trip by helicopter. Most providers will pick you up from your Stuba booked hotel (of course!) and take you back for orientation. Most of the helicopters used are super modern executive style machines. The cost varies, but its safe to say you will not get a cheaper, stylish ride back home in AUS or NZ; take advantage. The West Rim of the Grand Canyon, while not its most popular section, is still staggeringly beautiful and a sight to see. With views over Hoover Dam included, take the afternoon flight to ensure you get to see The Strip at dusk as you come into land. Perfect photo opportunities !Reality TV Tour: While not culturally engrossing, a bit of fun can be had here. Visit the pawn shop from the hit TV shows Pawn Stars,  the tank construction factory from Tanked, the retro store from Toy Shack, and the restoration plant from American Restoration. Its a half day tour, and  is a great opportunity to get away from the gambling and extravagance of The Strip.Shopping Tour: Vegas Outlet shopping is outstanding. Heavily discounted, new stock shoes, handbags and more. Most tour operators will also throw in some of The Strip highlights such as the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty. Apart from the convenient hop on hop off buses, they will throw in discount vouchers. Don’t forget to tip the driver!Shows: Unbeatably priced, and the highest quality. See Cirque du Soleil, The Beatles ‘Love’, Michael Jackson ‘One’, Penn & Teller, the Elvis Presley tribute ‘All Shook Up’, Magic Mike Live, Barry Manilow live and dozens more. Pricing is unbeatable.For all your Las Vegas accommodation needs, you cant go past Stuba !last_img read more
