Sierra Leone UNbacked court increases sentences for two former militia leaders

The United Nations-backed Special Court for Sierra Leone (SCSL) today increased the sentences of two former leaders of a pro-Government militia who were convicted last year of war crimes committed during the country’s prolonged civil war in the 1990s.The Special Court Appeals Chamber, in a majority judgment, today upheld war crimes convictions of the two men on counts of murder and cruel treatment and increased their sentences substantially. Moinina Fofana, who had been sentenced to concurrent sentences totalling six years, has now been sentenced to 15 years. Allieu Kondewa’s sentence was increased from eight to 20 years.Prosecutors at their trial last year said Mr. Fofana served as National Director of War for the pro-government militia, the Civil Defence Forces (CDF) while Mr. Kondewa acted as High Priest for the militia. During Sierra Leone’s civil war the CDF, whose members included tribally-based traditional hunters, supported the Government against rebel groups, including the Revolutionary United Front (RUF) and the Armed Forces Revolutionary Council (AFRC). Today’s judgment overturned convictions imposed by the Trial Chamber against Mr. Fofana and Mr. Kondewa for collective punishments, and against Mr. Kondewa for recruiting child soldiers. However, the Appeals Chamber, by a majority, also entered two new convictions against both men for murder and inhumane acts as crimes against humanity.The SCSL is mandated to try those bearing the greatest responsibility for serious violations of international humanitarian and Sierra Leonean law within the country’s borders since 30 November 1996. It is the second international war crimes tribunal established in Africa. 29 May 2008The United Nations-backed Special Court for Sierra Leone (SCSL) today increased the sentences of two former leaders of a pro-Government militia who were convicted last year of war crimes committed during the country’s prolonged civil war in the 1990s. read more

Five years after Baghdad attack UN remembers some of its best and

19 August 2008The United Nations today honoured those killed and injured in the terrorist attack on the world body’s headquarters in Baghdad five years ago, at a solemn ceremony in New York that included a classical music piece composed in memory of the fallen. The United Nations today honoured those killed and injured in the terrorist attack on the world body’s headquarters in Baghdad five years ago, at a solemn ceremony in New York that included a classical music piece composed in memory of the fallen.The bombing of the Canal Hotel in Baghdad on 19 August 2003 claimed the lives of 22, including the top UN envoy in Iraq, Sergio Vieira de Mello, and wounded more than 150. The attack robbed the UN of “some of its best and bravest staff members,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told the gathering, which included family members of the victims as well as survivors of the attack. “They were true heroes,” he added, noting that they went into a dangerous situation to help those in need.Mr. Ban noted that over the past five years, the UN has continued to help the people of Iraq – and others throughout the world – including by helping organize historic elections and draft a new constitution in 2005. The world body has also aided Iraqi refugees and is working hard to encourage political compromise among the various communities in Iraq. “This work is often dangerous, but our resolve is as strong as ever,” he said, adding that all of those who died five years ago “would have wanted us to go on, and we have.” But the risks remain, Mr. Ban pointed out, as illustrated by the deadly terrorist attack on UN offices in Algiers last December. He reiterated his pledge to improve staff safety and security, while also noting that protection means more than barricades and shatterproof glass. “By keeping alive the memory of those talented, selfless, compassionate and irreplaceable people we lost five years ago, we remind the world of what the UN stands for. And we recall again why the UN’s work must be protected and supported: for the sake of peace and justice, now and for generations to come.”Mr. Ban, joined by colleagues who were in Baghdad, laid a wreath in memory of the victims. A minute of silence was also observed in honour of the fallen staff. Also addressing the gathering was Stephen Kisambira, President of the UN Staff Union, who noted that the world has become a far more dangerous place where the neutrality of the Organization and its personnel is less respected and its staff vulnerable to attacks with each passing day.“We must stress the obligation of those who call upon United Nations staff to serve in difficult and dangerous parts of the world. We call upon them to take whatever action is necessary to ensure staff safety and security,” he said.The ceremony featured the world premiere of Song without Borders, a new classical music piece composed by Emmy Award-winner Steve Heitzeg in memory of UN staff members who have perished in the line of duty. The piece’s four movements are Universal Declaration, Blue Meditation (in remembrance of members of the UN family killed in the pursuit of peace), Unfinished Assignments (for Mr. Vieira de Mello and the people of the world) and Peaceful Resolution. It was performed by the Daedalus Quartet, which is currently the quartet-in-residence at New York’s Columbia University. At an event in Geneva to commemorate the anniversary, Sergei Ordzhonikidze, the Director-General of the UN Office there, highlighted the great sacrifice made by those killed in the attack. “The bomb that detonated at Canal Hotel, our Headquarters in Baghdad, robbed us of 22 men and women who had devoted their lives to the United Nations,” he told those gathered at a wreath-laying ceremony. “These staff members assumed great risk in the service of peace, security and of all humanity and paid the ultimate price, their lives.“The cause for which our friends and colleagues died stays on, and our quest continues, as we go on with our work,” he added. read more

Student Staff Network aims to build connections on campus

Brock Student Life and Community Experience is looking to make networking on campus a little easier for student staff members working throughout the summer.“With most people gone for the summer, it’s not always easy for students to stay involved or engaged on campus,” said Sarah Salt, Student Life Events and Programs Assistant.“We created the Brock Summer Student Staff Network as an opportunity for summer staff to get together, attend events or even just eat lunch at the Farmers Market as a group.”Since its inception in 2015 by a former staff member, Student Life has seen the impact those connections can have on both current and prospective students.“During the first summer, we were able to connect around 15 to 20 student staff members from the Smart Start team, the students’ union and Student Life for a great collaborative effort in transitioning new students to campus during the Smart Start and LEAP programs,” Salt said.“We formed strong friendships with each other, but, more importantly, with the incoming students; friendships that we still nurture today.”The network’s summer calendar is quickly filling with events and activities, including trips to SkyZone trampoline park, the Port Dalhousie Supper Market and some of Niagara’s many wineries. The group is also putting together a beach volleyball team.“The idea is to do things that are low cost, easy to access and that help create a social environment so we can all enjoy a great summer in Niagara,” Salt said.For more information about the Brock Summer Student Staff Network, visit the group’s Facebook page or e-mail Salt at ssalt@brocku.ca read more

Ohio State defense ready for upsetminded Bison

OSU coach Thad Matta looks on during a game against Bryant Dec. 11 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 86-48. Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorOhio State coach Thad Matta preaches team defense to his players every single day, a doctrine of success that has helped him lead the Buckeyes to 259 victories, a pair of Final Fours and four straight trips to the Sweet Sixteen.OSU’s defensive prowess has shown through even more this season, as the Buckeyes rank second in the country in scoring defense at 53.8 points per game, just a touch behind Clemson (53.6).“Coach Matta talks about it a lot, about every game, that we’re the best defense in the country,” junior guard Shannon Scott said Friday. “We really want to have that in our heads that nobody should be able to score on us. We want to make sure we’re the aggressor while we’re on offense and defense.”The Buckeyes (9-0, 0-0) have recorded 70 steals so far this season, with Scott and senior guard Aaron Craft swiping 21 and 23, respectively. The team also has 48 blocks through nine games, half of which are from junior center Amir Williams. Consistency on defense all over the floor is leading to the success, Scott said.“I feel like we’re all really connected right now,” Scott said.The Buckeyes are set to take on the North Dakota State Bison (7-3, 0-0) Saturday, who are fresh off of a 73-69 win at Notre Dame.“I think that was the best thing for us honestly,” Scott said, referring to the Bison’s win against the Irish. “We know they’re coming in as a great team, they just beat a great Notre Dame team. The fact that they’re coming in the way they are really puts us … backs us up on our toes where we can’t just go into the game expecting them to hand us the game because we’re Ohio State and they’re North Dakota State.”Bison senior forward Marshall Bjorklund scored 26 points against the Irish, and is one of four players who averages double figures in scoring.“(Bjorklund) shoots a very high percentage, so we have to try to get him outside the box, outside his comfort zone and not (let) him get the looks he’s been getting,” junior center Trey McDonald said Friday. “And also rely on some of the help from the guards with our pressure defense on the ball.”Matta said Bjorklund is “right there” in the discussion of best post player his team has faced all season, but has been pleased with what McDonald and Williams have done so far on defense, particularly in the team’s win against Bryant.“I’ve been very pleased, and I thought both guys Wednesday night had great awareness, great energy,” Matta said. “They made some plays out of their area, be it helping along the baseline or Amir blocking shots … That’s what we want those guys to do is to really plug the middle for us down there.”McDonald said he and Williams see playing against Bjorklund as an opportunity.“Although it is a team, it is team defense, we look at it as a personal challenge,” McDonald said. “Someone shooting that high of a field goal percentage and averaging that many points, we definitely look to Amir to try and shut them down and play our defensive game as we have been doing.”Shutting down Bjorklund and the rest of the Bison will be a challenge for the Buckeye defense, and even though there is always room to improve, Matta likes where they’re at currently.“I think that we’ve got some guys that are underrated defenders. I love what guys are bringing to the table,” Matta said. “Are we perfect? No, we’re not perfect. But we have guys dialed in and connected and tuned into scouting.”Tipoff between the Buckeyes and Bison is set for 8:15 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center. read more

Las Vegas Is A Terrible Place For An NHL Team

The NHL will expand to Las Vegas pending a $500 million fee for the new franchise, the Associated Press reported Tuesday. In 2015, Nate Silver explained why Las Vegas doesn’t make much sense for the NHL. This post was originally published on April 22, 2015. The original text is below. There ought to be more NHL teams in Canada, which has only seven of the 30 NHL franchises despite having about as many hockey fans as the United States.And there perhaps ought to be fewer in midsize American markets, especially those far from the Canadian border. According to my previous research, the six current NHL markets with the fewest number of hockey fans are Nashville, Miami, Raleigh, Columbus, Phoenix and Tampa. Those franchises lost a collective $51 million in 2013-14, according to Forbes.Now there’s momentum to place an NHL expansion team in Las Vegas, another idea that makes little sense.Our 2013 analysis estimated that there are just 91,000 NHL fans in metro Las Vegas. That’s tiny even by comparison to the six smallest NHL markets that I mentioned before, which have between 146,000 (Nashville) and 279,000 (Tampa) hockey fans. And it’s well below Seattle’s 241,000 or Quebec City’s 530,000 fans.But here’s another reason to be skeptical about Las Vegas: The city has had several professional sports franchises (albeit none from the four or five largest North American sports leagues), and it hasn’t supported them very well.Consider that the city’s Triple-A baseball franchise, the Las Vegas 51s of the Pacific Coast League, had the lowest attendance in the PCL last year.Or that the city’s professional hockey franchise, the Las Vegas Wranglers of the ECHL, disbanded earlier this year after years of middling attendance and an inability to find a suitable home arena.The Las Vegas Gladiators of the Arena Football League were relocated to Cleveland in 2007 after five seasons of attendance well below AFL averages. Las Vegas has a new AFL team this season, the Las Vegas Outlaws, but their attendance was poor in their first two games.You could make an optimist’s case for the NHL in Las Vegas. The number of fans will grow, undoubtedly, if the league places a franchise there. The city gets a lot of tourists (it has about 150,000 hotel rooms), which adds to the functional size of its population.1Although a lot of the tourists are from California and the American Southwest — hardly hockey hotbeds. And Las Vegas’s population is growing, although the rate of growth has slowed since the housing bust.But it’s asking a lot for Las Vegas to support a major league team when it’s struggled to support pretty much every minor league team that’s tried to play there. If the city has some positives, it also has some negatives, like irregular working hours, middling public transit and abundant competition for the entertainment dollar, which may depress sports attendance.To their credit, the backers of the Las Vegas NHL franchise, after a monthslong campaign, have gotten commitments from about 11,000 would-be season ticket holders. That sounds impressive until you consider that the Winnipeg Jets sold out their entire allotment of 13,000 season tickets in 17 minutes after the Atlanta Thrashers were relocated there in 2011. Hockey’s a bit more popular on the frozen tundra than in the middle of the desert.There is a much better case for an NBA team in Las Vegas. NBA avidity is already well above average there, based on the number of Google searches for NBA-related topics. The NBA, unlike the NHL, has had success in similar markets, like San Antonio and Oklahoma City. And the only sports team that’s consistently been a good draw in Las Vegas is a basketball team: The UNLV Runnin’ Rebels averaged almost 14,000 fans per game from 2009-10 through 2013-14.2Attendance data for the most recent college basketball season isn’t available yet. read more

Modular REFLUX Classifier plant from FLSmidth offers improvement on spirals and hydrosizers

first_imgOne of the major advantages of the FLSmidth Modular REFLUX™ Classifier Plant, which is suitable for fines gravity separation applications, is that it can be configured for specific requirements and is quick to install and commission on site within a relatively short period of time. This integrated engineered modular solution has at its heart the well proven REFLUX™ Classifier (RC™) from FLSmidth. Already well proven in the mineral beneficiation of fines in Asia, Australia, Africa and North America, use of this technology effectively improves the performance of gravity separation circuits over existing technologies such as spirals and hydrosizers.Ricus van Reenen, Senior Account Manager at FLSmidth, says the modular RC plant enables customers to take advantage of the benefits of RC technology as well as to leverage the flexibility that modularity gives to an operation. Each section of the modular plant is contained within the dimensions of a 20 ft shipping container and the combination of these sections or containers allows the plant to be configured according to process requirements. The configuration is easily adjustable to accommodate the changing process or ore conditions within given parameters, and this offers even greater flexibility. The plant can also be easily relocated to where needed; i.e. from one site to another.Rapid on-site installation is possible as the frames of each modular section are easily assembled and locked together. All that is required is an 80 t mobile crane and a rigging team. Assembly is done under supervision of FLSmidth technical personnel who will hot commission the plant. The equipment technologies selected for the modular plant are all FLSmidth and interface optimally with the RC. This ensures the feed material is correctly prepared prior to it reporting to the RC so that it operates correctly and to specification. In addition to the operational advantages that come with using technologies from one source, customers can leverage this single point of contact from an on-site support perspective as well. Typically the modular fines separation plant would include pumps, screens, dewatering equipment, cyclones and conveyors. The entire modular RC plant is automated using advanced instrumentation and control. All process parameters are monitored to ensure optimum performance. This allows for more consistent operation and therefore better recoveries. The modular RC plant can also be integrated into a brownfields plant where the RC is retrofitted to replace less efficient technology.last_img read more

Australia sends largest recruitment team yet to Ireland

first_imgAUSTRALIA IS TO send its largest recruitment team yet to meet Irish candidates at the Working Abroad Expo in Dublin this month.The Australian Futures delegation visiting the country will include representatives from the Australian Government’s Department of Immigration and Citizenship, and for the states of Victoria (Melbourne),Western Australian (Perth) and South Australia (Adelaide).They will be at the Working Abroad Expo to support Irish people looking to move to their country, as Australian Futures 2013 is designed to make the emigration process more transparent for those considering life overseas.StatesThe representatives of different states on the Australian Futures team will be there to discuss what opportunities exist for Irish people hoping to move ‘down under’.For example, the Victorian state government has a large list of occupations from across industries that it can nominate – including Health Professions, ICT, biotechnology, food science backgrounds and those with engineering expertise.According to Tom Marwick, Victoria’s Skilled & Business Migration Manager with Australian Futures:We know that emigration rules and regulations can be confusing with people finding it difficult to assess if they will be successful in their visa application. The March expo will see expert government representatives in Ireland, so those considering Australia should leave no stone unturned.Marwick said they are looking to meet “work-ready candidates” keen to learn more about the migration process, discuss sponsorship opportunities with Australian State and Territory Government representatives and meet potential employers and industry bodies.While Western Australia’s recruitment drive has been primarily about construction, engineering and mining to date, Irish hospitality skills are in demand, including chefs, cooks, bar staff and managers. According to Jarrod Ferguson of Australian Future, in Perth they need to fill up to 2,000 positions this year across hotels, wineries, vineyards, restaurants and more.Osborne Recruitment MD Shona McManus said they have noticed a slow down in international recruitment in Perth and Western Australia from a construction and mining perspective, but these sectors as still very buoyant in Queensland and New South Wales for those with construction backgrounds.Between April 2011 – 2012, almost 35,000 people emigrated from Ireland to countries outside the EU or USA, and it is expected that many of those have moved to Australia or New Zealand.The Working Abroad Expo takes place at the RDS, Industries Hall on Saturday, 2 and Sunday 3 March 2013 (10 to 5pm) and at the Silver Springs Cork on Wednesday 6 March from 12 to 7 pm. www.workingabroad.netRead: Australian police force poaching trained gardaí>Read: 230 Irish expected to gain Australian citizenship tomorrow>last_img read more

Chemical waste worries Cretans

first_imgThe World Council of Cretans last week expressed its opposition and outrage to the proposed and ‘secretly planned’ destruction of chemical weapons from Syria in the Mediterranean sea areas west of Crete. The response comes as the internationally praised August deal between the USA and Russia, to destroy the Syrian chemical arsenal, failed. The chemicals were meant to be transferred outside Syria by the end of December 2013 and destroyed by June 2014. With the December deadline already missed, discussions now suggest the possibility of chemical waste being dumped in the Mediterranean, in an area between Crete, Malta and Libya. This scenario is becoming likelier since Italy has promised to offer a port for the two Danish and Norwegian ships which will transport the lethal chemical weapons. The president of the World Council of Cretans, Tony Tsourdalakis, told Neos Kosmos that the council condemns this decision that could have a catastrophic impact on the island. “We condemn the decision of the respective government to dump the Syrian chemicals to the South of Crete in the Mediterranean Sea. This is a catastrophic decision of huge proportions, that will not only harm sea life, but will possibly cause health and contamination issues. Most importantly, it will deter tourists from the south coastal beaches of Crete, putting a large dint in the Greek tourist industry,” he told Neos Kosmos. Mr Tsourdalakis said the council believed that responsibility for the preservation and destruction of the chemical weapons lies with the countries of production that supplied the weapons to Syria. “Certainly this was not Greece. The World Council of Cretans – and in particular the 500 Cretan organisations globally and one million Cretans in and out of Crete – express their utmost concerns and condemn these actions. We urge the Greek government, via its role in the United Nations and in light of the fact that it has the European presidency, to request that this dangerous, criminal and unacceptable action ceases immediately.” “We unite our voice with the voice of all Greeks to stop this crime that will certainly affect the health of nearby countries and even more Greece,” he said. The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has estimated that about 1,300 tons of chemical weapons, most of which are mustard gas based, will be destroyed via hydrolysis. In the light of concerns over the environmental and health impact of the planned destruction of Syria’s chemical arsenal in international waters west of Chania, intense concerns and opposition were expressed by the Medical Association of Chania. “The procedure to be followed has not been elucidated completely and could possibly pose serious risks to the ecosystem of the region and the bordering regions, such as Chania. In particular, the reported hydrolysis process is not sufficient for complete inactivation of the derivatives of the quantities of chemical weapons of Syria to be destroyed,” it was said in the statement. The Medical Association of Chania urged the United Nations and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Use of Chemical Weapons, the two organisations responsible for the destruction process of those chemicals, to adjust their schedules and to provide ultimate safety in the areas of chemical processing.

Ford v Ferrari trailer puts Matt Damon in Carroll Shelbys shoes Christian

While early photos from the movie led some to believe that Matt Damon and Christian Bale would be playing Carroll Shelby and Enzo Ferrari, respectively, it turns out that Bale is actually playing the role of Ken Miles, a test driver and racer who helped Shelby develop the GT40.Bale (left) and Damon (right) star.  Merrick Morton/20th Century Fox The movie doesn’t just focus on the race, instead chronicling the seemingly impossible task of Ford standing up to Ferrari in one of the toughest races in automotive history. A win at Le Mans is never a guarantee, as running a race car at pace for 24 hours straight can put vehicles and people through all sorts of hell. Shelby’s mark is still felt at Ford to this day. In addition to two generations of Ford GT supercar that were built in the 21st century as a new-school throwback, Shelby’s name is still on the most hardcore Mustangs to leave the factory.For v Ferrari also stars Caitriona Balfe (Outlander), Jon Bernthal (star of The Punisher Netflix series), Josh Lucas (Poseidon), and Ray McKinnon (Deadwood). It’s directed and co-written by James Mangold, who also wrote and directed Logan and The Wolverine.It’s unclear just how much will change in the move from the history books to the big screen, but come Nov. 15, we’ll find out for sure when the movie releases around the world.Originally published 6:39 a.m. PT.Updated at 3:28 p.m. PT with images and more movie notes. 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350: A friendlier track animal 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is a 700+ hp assassin Ford Ferrari 4:31 Preview • 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 first drive: A more approachable track star More From Roadshow Ford Ferrari Share your voice 63 Photos 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 first drive: A more approachable track star 1 Now playing: Watch this: Comment More about 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Fastback 2019 Maserati Levante GTS: Heart of gold Car Culture TV and Movieslast_img read more

Houston Health Providers To Use Social Media Location Data In Disaster Response

first_imgDavis LandCommunity healthcare providers gather in Houston to share what they learned from Harvey on Thursday, May 10, 2018.Community health organizations from the Gulf Coast met in Houston on Thursday to share plans and lessons learned from Harvey, looking towards the 2018 hurricane season. Medicine being left at home during evacuations became a common issue heard by healthcare providers during Hurricane Harvey, echoing past flooding disasters like hurricanes Katrina and Rita. With new methods, providers are hoping to better meet the most common needs of those fleeing a disaster. Providers at the workshop said understanding where people ended up after evacuating is something they hoped to improve for the future.One part of planning for 2018 was Facebook, which through its Disaster Maps program provides aid organizations aggregate and “de-identified” data on how people are moving around an area during disasters. “We need to be able to have effective plans in place beforehand,” said Andrew Schroeder of aid organization Direct Relief — one of the groups training Texas clinics. “During hurricane Harvey some of these tools were available in the sense that the data exists but [knowing] the way to use them didn’t exist,” he saidFacebook also has a tool called Community Help, which initially matched people in need with others providing donations. In February this year Facebook announced Community Help would open to businesses, which clinics in Texas are now learning to use. In addition to someone who needs a place to stay finding someone else with an open bed room, for example, the platform hopes to connect patients who need certain medications during disaster with a clinic that can provide them.
