Better access crucial for Gazas recovery and reconstruction – top UN official

1 May 2009The top United Nations envoy to the Middle East has urged better access for essential items to enter Gaza, stressing that the humanitarian and early recovery situation there nearly four months after the end of Israel’s military offensive is “alarming” and shows no real progress. During a visit to Gaza yesterday, UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Robert Serry was informed of the difficulties facing families, businesses and civic groups as they try to move forward after the offensive, which Israel launched on 27 December with the stated aim of ending rocket attacks by Hamas and other groups.At least 1,300 Palestinians were killed in the three-week operation and some 5,300 wounded, while homes, schools, hospitals and marketplaces were reduced to rubble.“The situation is really alarming – fulfilling the humanitarian needs and beginning early recovery is impossible without the adequate entry of fuel, cash and materials needed for the repairs of damaged or destroyed homes, schools, clinics and other urgent infrastructure repairs,” stated Mr. Serry. “Better access is crucial.”UN humanitarian chief John Holmes stressed the same point yesterday, noting that while donors have pledged money, the flow of goods is “wholly inadequate and reconstruction is almost impossible.” Roughly 75 per cent of Gaza’s 1.5 million residents require assistance, but even the most essential imports are subject to intense limitations by Israeli authorities, he pointed out in an opinion piece published in the European Voice (Brussels).Mr. Serry added that “time is passing and there is no real progress.” Noting that tens of thousands of Gazans whose homes were hit in the conflict now face a sweltering summer in unacceptable conditions without proper shelter, he stressed the urgent need to begin rebuilding and repairing homes. The envoy also warned that the underlying political issues need to be addressed. “In the absence of real progress on issues like Palestinian reconciliation, open crossings, secure borders and prisoner exchanges, the potential for renewed violence is ever present.“That would be disastrous for people in Gaza as well as Southern Israel. We’ve got to change this dynamic, with political progress, and with practical results on the ground,” he stated. read more

Oilsands through the hourglass Defining moments that shaped an economic juggernaut

The Canadian oilsands industry is beset with environmental concerns and low crude prices. Nonetheless, production is expected to grow. The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers estimates that oilsands output will reach 3.7 million barrels per day in 2030 from 2.4 million bpd last year.Some key dates in the history of the oilsands:1719: A Cree man named Wa-Pa-Su presents an oilsands sample for trade at the Hudson’s Bay Company to Henry Kelsey, who was the first recorded European to see it.1923: Dr. Karl Clark of the Alberta Research Council develops a process that uses hot water to separate oil from oilsands, which he patents in 1928.1967: Philadelphia-based Sun Oil opens its $240-million Great Canadian Oil Sands project with an initial production capacity of 45,000 barrels per day.1974: The Alberta Oilsands Technology and Research Authority is formed to develop a way of recovering the 80 per cent of bitumen buried too deep for mining. The method is known as “in situ,” Latin for “in place.” The result was steam-assisted gravity drainage, known in industry parlance as SAGD, where steam is injected into a reservoir to warm the thick bitumen so that it can be pumped to the surface.1978: Syncrude Canada opens a mining operation using large draglines and conveyor belt systems to excavate and pile oilsands deposits.1993: Suncor Energy adopts more effective and cost-efficient truck and shovel technology to replace less reliable bucket-wheel excavator and conveyor belt systems, resulting in the loss of about 400 jobs.2001: After several years of operating as a pilot project, Foster Creek becomes the first commercial oilsands project to use SAGD technology. It is now owned by Cenovus Energy.2004: Alberta oilsands production reaches one million bpd.2008: Actress Neve Campbell tours the oilsands, becoming one of the first celebrities to speak out against the industry . Since then, a number of high-profile figures including director James Cameron, anti-apartheid leader Desmond Tutu, singer Neil Young and actor Leonardo DiCaprio have made similar trips to draw attention to environmental concerns.2012: Oilsands production from thermal in situ wells and other non-mining methods reaches 960,000 bpd, surpassing output from strip mines at 930,000 for the first time.(Sources: Oil Sands Discovery Centre, Suncor Energy, The Canadian Press) read more

Suspected arson attack in Paris kills 10

first_imgThis handout picture taken and released by the Paris firefighters brigade (BSPP) in the night of 5 February 2019 shows a fire in a building in Erlanger street in the 16th arrondissement in Paris, that killed 10 people. Photo: AFPAt least 10 people died and 30 were injured in an overnight blaze at an apartment block in Paris that police suspect was deliberately started by a female resident, officials and firefighters said Tuesday.The fire on the upper floors of the building in rue Erlanger in the upmarket 16th district of southwest Paris is the most deadly in the capital since 2005.Dramatic video footage from the scene showed flames leaping out of top floor windows and firemen climbing narrow ladders to rescue terrified residents, some dressed only in pyjamas, from the top of the eight-storey block.Described by one rescue worker as a “scene of incredible violence”, the blaze left at least 10 people dead and around 30 others injured — six of them firefighters, the fire service said.”One person who lives in the building has been arrested. She’s a 40-year-old woman who has prior psychological problems,” Paris prosecutor Remy Heitz said at the scene, where the smell of smoke still hung in the air several hours after the blaze was extinguished.An investigation has been opened into the criminal charge of causing death by arson amid fears that the toll could climb further as investigators search the burned-out top floors.Tributes were paid to rescue workers who saved around 50 people on Monday night, some of whom had climbed on to the roofs of adjacent buildings to escape the inferno.The fire started at about 1:00am (0000 GMT) and was only brought under control more than five hours later by around 200 firefighters backed by 100 fire engines.”At windows, people were yelling ‘Help, help!’ everyone was panicking,” witness Humberto Ribas, who works in a building opposite, told AFP.Another local, who gave his name as Nicolas, said he initially thought a fight had broken out when he heard a woman screaming.”She was screaming, screaming and we went outside and the building was already on fire,” he said.Inner courtyardBut rescue efforts were initially hampered by the fact that the blaze was ripping through apartments inside an inner courtyard, with no vehicle access.”The firemen had just arrived but what was amazing was that they were completely impotent,” Nicolas told AFP.”They had the trucks, the big ladders, but they couldn’t do anything.”Only once they had fitted extenders to their equipment, which needed to be carried into the courtyard were the firefighters able to begin rescue operations.Several times the blaze appeared to have been brought under control before flaring up again, another witness told AFP.”The building was very difficult to access,” Daniele Giazzi, mayor of the 16th district, told BFM television as she paid tribute to the rescue workers who toiled through the night.Several local residents said the fire started after a dispute between neighbours in the block, which was built in the 1970s, unlike many of the older, classic Parisian buildings nearby.”It’s one of the possibilities being examined by investigators,” deputy mayor of Paris Emmanuel Gregoire told RTL radio.Sports stadiumsThe wealthy neighbourhood is home to several private schools and lies on the edge of the vast Bois de Boulogne park.It is close to the stadium of football club Paris Saint-Germain, the Parc des Princes, and the Roland Garros complex used for the French Open tennis tournament.”France is waking up with emotion after the fire on rue Erlanger in Paris,” President Emmanuel Macron tweeted.”Thoughts for the victims. Thank you to the firefighters whose courage helped save many lives.”The fire is the most deadly in Paris since 2005 when an arson attack at a building in the southeast 13th district killed 17 people, 14 of them children.The worst fire in Paris since World War II was in April of the same year when 24 people perished at a building used for temporary accommodation after a fight between two residents.Tuesday’s blaze follows a powerful gas explosion last month that killed four people in the city’s central 9th district and is likely to renew debate about fire safety in the City of Light.Two adjacent buildings were also evacuated as a precaution and local officials were on site to help find housing for residents who could not return home.Standing at the police cordon, Jose Emilien was anxiously seeking news of his cousin and nephew who live on the sixth floor of the building.”I called both of them,” the 46-year-old builder told AFP.”They’re not picking up and I don’t have any news.”last_img read more

Clarín Keylor is a superhero and La Sele is our army

Related posts:World Cup 2018: Two Costa Rican fans travel to La Sele’s rival countries Serbia defeats Costa Rica 1-0 at the 2018 World Cup Costa Rica, Brazil battle rumors of tension and injury before high-stakes matchup Costa Rica fans descend on Saint Petersburg “Keylor Navas is flying again. Fast, astute, impeccable.”So begins a story in the Argentinean daily Clarín, headlined “Real Madrid found a superhero in Central America.” Author Waldermar Iglesias waxes eloquent about the Costa Rican superstar goalkeeper and then wanders into Costa Rican history.A sociologist quoted in the story argues that Costa Rica’s extraordinary passion for football has its roots in the country’s lack of an army. Keylor Navas and Real Madrid topped Manchester CIty 1-0 in the Champions League semifinals second leg at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid to advance to the tournament final in 2016. Curto de la Torre/AFP“Keylor was born in Costa Rica. It sounds like the periphery of football, but that’s not true,” the story reads. “It’s one of the countries with the strongest passion for the sport. It’s all about a central question… that goes beyond the playing field: before the last World Cup, sociologist Sergio Villena Fiengo told this daily, ‘Costa Rica is a country that abolished its army in 1948 and had no war of independence as such… in this framework, the Men’s National Soccer Team is a ritualistic space in which, in some way, a ‘return of repressed militarism’ is produced.“‘Discussion of the team is full of warlike, epic rhetoric, with elements that emphasize masculinity and virility as well as the idea of ‘conquest,’” Iglesias told the daily. La Sele reached its highest heights at the 2014 World Cup, but has inspired Ticos for decades. Lindsay Fendt / The Tico TimesThe story also quotes Rafael Angel Calderón, who, as president in 1990 when Costa Rica sent its Men’s National Team to the World Cup for the first time in history (with surprising success), said that “This is the most marvelous thing that has ever happened in Costa Rican history… the greatest of all God’s gifts to us.” Costa Rica’s Marco Ureña (R) celebrates with teammates after scoring against Mexico during their 2018 World Cup football qualifier match at the National Stadium. AFP PHOTO / Carlos GONZALEZ“The plane that carried [the team upon its return] flew at the lowest level all over the country until it ran out of gas. Not even the sick stayed inside. In the streets, the party lasted much longer than the next morning,” Iglesias writes. “It’s not magical realism. It’s Costa Rican soccer in its purest state. Navas, the superhero of Real Madrid, will be in this World Cup as well… in search of new epic journeys for La Sele, that weaponless army of his beloved Costa Rica.”Read the original story here.Stay tuned for our World Cup-themed print edition, coming in June.

expenditure estimates stand at Rs 428966 crore actual expenditure till March 25 shows that barely Rs 214179 crore has been utilised For the next financial year the corporation has made an estimate of Rs 31000 crore up by almost 13 per cent from the current fiscal budget of Rs 27500 crore Even after the Dockyard Building collapse in September 2013 the lowest expenditure about 48 per cent of a

past Germany annihilated Brazil 7-1 in the 2014 World Cup in the latter’s den while the Neymar-inspired Selecao returned the favour at the Rio Olympics last year by winning the gold medal The Salt

football-mad Kolkata did not disappoint with an average 40000-plus attendance so far The Brazilians have a huge support base in the region since the legendary Pele mesmerised the city during the Cosmos tour of 1977 Compared to their illustrious seniors who are five-time reigning world champions the German colts are still searching for an elusive title at U-17 level Their best came in the tournament’s inaugural edition in China 1985 when the then West Germany had finished runners-up On paper the Germans are no match for their Latin American rivals who are in their 16th U-17 World Cup Till 2015 Brazil have played the most matches (75) accumulated the most victories (47) and scored the most goals (166) in the history of the FIFA U-17 World Cup These stats however don’t make the

goal in four matches "Our defensive systems start with our forwards that’s why the opponent’s team not shooting not much in our goals" he spoke of Brazil who have won all their four matches without much fuss Brenner and Lincoln have been in their imperious best with three goals each but it’s their diminutive young midfielder Alan who has been the sensation setting up goals The 17-year-old has reportedly impressed many European clubs including Real Madrid with his deft footwork The Brazilian No 10 was rested for his country’s third group match against Niger but returned to set up all the three goals against Honduras and he would definitely give the German defence something to ponder about "We always look for a pass if that pass is going to find a team-mate who’s better placed to put the ball in the net There’s no selfishness in this team" Alan the shortest player in their squad said about their team unity This match has attracted the attention of Germany’s 2014 World Cup and 2017

Awuku Jann-Fiete Arp Vatican: Pope Francis on Wednesday called for categorical opposition to capital punishment to be written into an update of the most important guide to Catholic teaching His comments which will be controversial with many fundamentalist Christians and some Catholics came in a speech to clerics attending a conference in Rome to mark the 25th anniversary of the publication of the Catechism of the Catholic Church The catechism is a question and answer guide to what Catholics should think about a wide range of moral and social issues File image of Pope Francis AP Acknowledging that the Vatican itself had historically had "recourse to the extreme and inhuman remedy" of judicial execution Francis said past doctrinal errors should be put aside "We have to restate that however grave the crime that may be committed the death penalty is inadmissible because it attacks the inviolability and the dignity of the person" he said The execution of a human being was fundamentally against the teachings of Christ because by definition it excluded the possibility of redemption he argued The Catholic church has steadily increased the strength of its opposition to the use of capital punishment in recent years Pope John Paul II made an appeal for a global consensus on abolition in 1999 and Francis’s predecessor Benedict XVI issued a similar call in 2011 The 1992 text of the catechism says authorities should take appropriate measures in the interest of the common good without excluding the use of the death penalty in extremely grave cases More recent updates say justifying circumstances are now rare if not practically non-existent And a version of the catechism aimed at younger people now includes a question "Why is the Church opposed to the death penalty" Francis has made clear his own personal opposition to the death penalty on numerous occasions "It doesn’t give justice to victims but it feeds vengeance" he said in June 2016 arguing that the

What kind of images will the audience carry with them out of the production Text is a basis for the set design and way of speech In To Kill or Not to Kill the actor uses elements such as stones and straw and passes through fire to arrive at a moment of truth Medea and Hamlet never meet so how have you brought them together It is an original script and very difficult The narrative is about a woman who has been pushed to the edge she is desperate and has also started to lose her mind Some great tragedy has happened to her and she starts to speak about life in the language of Medea and Hamlet Hamlet hated women because he felt betrayed by his mother Medea was betrayed by her husband Jason In our play the woman protagonist is neither Medea nor Hamlet but she uses their language to

Gallery of Art in Washington and the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth Texas USA From prehistorical objects to commissioned contemporary artwork the display highlights universal themes and ideas There
