Colombia UN agency hails 22 billion commitment to displaced persons

“We consider that this substantial and gradual increase in funding is a step in the right direction and a sign of Colombia’s commitment to fulfil its responsibilities towards IDPs, both in terms of finding durable solutions for those already displaced and of guaranteeing the protection of all its citizens in order to avoid new forced displacement,” UNHCR spokesman Ron Redmond told a news briefing in Geneva.In the first nine months of this year alone, the authorities registered nearly 100,000 new cases of forced displacement. Non-governmental organizations give much higher estimates. The vast majority have fled to escape the conflict between rival irregular armed groups, and their situation is often very precarious.According to several official studies, more than 50 per cent of IDPs do not have access to the health system, up to 65 per cent have lost lands or properties, and only a fraction manage to be economically secure even after years of displacement.Increased government funding could mean better access to work, housing and protection. Given the magnitude of the problem, and the fact that the crisis has been going on for more than four decades, the task is daunting and the government itself acknowledges that more funds will be required. Colombia’s civil society, including organizations of displaced people, will play a decisive role in the implementation of the newly announced initiatives.”UNHCR will continue to cooperate with these organizations and to provide technical assistance to state institutions at the local and national levels, while implementing projects that directly benefit thousands of persons in the areas most severely affected by the armed conflict and humanitarian crisis,” Mr. Redmond said. read more

UN refugee agency appeals for protection against sexual abuse of women and

“Refugee and migrant children moving in Europe are at heightened risk of violence and abuse, including sexual violence, especially in overcrowded reception sites, or in many locations where refugees and migrants gather, such as parks, train stations, bus stations and roadsides,” said Spokesperson Melissa Fleming for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).“Unaccompanied children can be particularly vulnerable as they lack the protection and care of an adult,” Ms. Fleming told the regular Friday press briefing in Geneva, Switzerland.According to UNHCR, more than 644,000 refugees and migrants have arrived in Europe by sea so far this year, and of these, some 34 percent are women and children.“In addition to the reported risks and abuse they face during the journey before arriving on Europe’s shores, women and children are also confronted with numerous risks in their onward movement through Europe,” the spokesperson said.“From testimony and reports we have received there have been instances of children engaging in survival sex to pay smugglers to continue their journey, either because they have run out money, or because they have been robbed,” she said.“UNHCR appeals to all concerned national authorities in Europe to take measures to ensure the protection of women and girls, including through providing adequate and safe reception facilities,” Ms. Fleming said. On behalf of the refugee agency, she asked authorities, “as a matter of urgency,” to find alternatives to the detention of children. “Together with partners we are also working with authorities to ensure access to information, to enhance the identification of persons with specific needs, including unaccompanied children, and their referral to appropriate services, to provide psychosocial support and to enhance reception areas, including through the provision of safe spaces,” the agency official said. read more

Wrestling Ohio State dominates Missouri in top5 dual

OSU freshman Luke Fletcher celebrates his first varsity victory over Missouri’s Zach Synon. Credit: Sam Janicki. Courtesy of OSU AthleticsThe dual-meet between Ohio State and Missouri, featuring two 2016 Olympians and recognizing last season’s championships won by sophomore Myles Martin and junior Kyle Snyder, the No. 4 Buckeyes dominated the No. 5 Tigers 30-9.Redshirt juniors Nathan Tomasello and Bo Jordan, Snyder and Martin all won in landslide decisions.“You see these four guys, four of the 10 were a critical part of our first national championship,” OSU coach Tom Ryan said.At 133 pounds, Tomasello faced off against Missouri’s Jaydin Eierman, in a match that turned controversial after Tomasello finished a slam out of bounds after a blown whistle.“I didn’t hear any whistle and then as the whistle blew, I already had him in the air,” Tomasello said.  “I wanted to finish my tag.  I think it was kind of good to get the crowd more involved after that.”Tomasello won the match 11-2. Since beginning the season with an injury, he has lived up to the hype of a championship contender in the few weeks of competition.“Patience, patience is important,” Tomasello said.  “Having support from the training staff and from coach Ryan and all the guys like Kyle (Snyder) has helped me to continue to push hard and come back even better than I was last year.”A point of anticipation in Thursday’s match was the debut of OSU freshman Luke Pletcher at 141 pounds, who had his redshirt pulled earlier this week.  Down early in the first period, Pletcher rebounded by scoring a late takedown, ultimately prevailing 6-3.“I remember him staying in the fight,” Ryan said.  “I remember him scoring late in the periods.  You want to be the guy that scores the last points in the period.”Coach Ryan praised Pletcher’s ability to handle the stress and pressure that comes with short turnarounds and tough competition.  “We felt pretty good about Luke going in. On a daily basis, he does the things necessary to have a performance like that.”OSU’s Kollin Moore, redshirt freshman at 197 lbs., wrestled the tightest match of the night, taking on Olympic bronze medalist and top-ranked J’den Cox of Missouri.  Moore fell behind 0-2 early, but kept close the entire match.  Two crucial takedowns in the third period brought Moore within a point of Cox, but his effort fell short, as Cox prevailed 6-4.Bo Jordan and brother Micah won their matches by a combined score of 37-13. Martin scored six takedowns, winning 21-5. Snyder pinned his opponent in the heavyweight division. read more

New solar reactor produces clean fuel from sunlight and carbon dioxide

first_imgResearchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have developed a new solar reactor that has the potential to convert the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions we produce every day into a usable clean fuel.The reactor requires sunlight which we have in abundance, and the rare earth metal cerium oxide or ceria. While it’s classed as a rare earth metal, it’s also one of the most abundant with about as much available as there is copper in the world.AdChoices广告Ceria is an unusual metal oxide because at very high temperatures it “exhales” oxygen, while at low temperatures it “inhales” it. The ceria is used to line the interior of the solar reactor below a quartz window which concentrates sunlight on to the metal heating it up to nearly 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit.The solar reactor can be filled with CO2 and/or water gas molecules which the ceria inhales oxygen from. This leaves carbon monoxide from the CO2 and hydrogen gas from the water. Hydrogen gas on its own can form a fuel where as the carbon monoxide combined with hydrogen gas forms synthetic gas or syngas.In both cases we get a usable fuel, but most importantly we have a method for converting CO2 into something useful instead of continuing to allow it to build up in the atmosphere.At the moment the solar reactor is fairly inefficient and only manages to use 1% of the solar energy it takes in. The researchers believe they can increase that to at least 15%.As for applications, the reactor has the potential to make existing power generation facilities much more eco-friendly. For example, a coal-burning power plant that currently releases CO2 waste into the atmosphere could instead pump it into large solar reactors and turn it into syngas. This not only helps the environment, but also creates a second product for the power company to sell.Read more at Caltech, via Slashdotlast_img read more

The best tips tricks addons for Google

first_imgIt’s been 2 weeks, and Google+ has captured the attention of the tech community in a very real way. Since the initial invite seed, hundreds of articles about the service have been written, and it has been the talk of every news source I have seen. Facebook responded to Google+ within a week by offering similar services and promising much more on the way, and Google’s been tweaking the service nonstop. Despite Google’s previous failures, it would appear that this will soon become a legitimate social network in direct competition with Facebook. So, as invites begin to ebb and flow from Google, and more users flock to the service, we’ve compiled a list of tips, tricks, and add-ons that have already surfaced to complete your Google+ experience.Basic FunctionsAdChoices广告These are, in essence, services that are built in but not highly advertised. These tools might make it easier to use Google+, and require no setup on your end.Delete Comments – You are able to both delete comments that other users make on your posts and report them if they are abusive. The option to do this is with the individual post settings, the small triangle in a circle to the far right of a post you have made. Select “Report or Remove Comments” from the drop down. Now, there will be an (X) and a flag next to each comment. Select the appropriate option and the change will happen immediately. Fair warning, everyone else has this power as well, so don’t be shocked when your comment disappears.Create a “Blocked” circle – Eventually, you’re probably going to want to block someone. Heck, you might even choose to block a bunch of people. The first time you block someone, a new circle will appear in your Circles. Where the rest of your circles are shiny and blue, this one will be a bright red and labeled “Blocked”. Once you’ve created the circle it stays until you delete it, even if it’s empty. Once you have one, however, it becomes just as easy to block multiple users as it does to add them to any other Circle.You can make yourself searchable by your other social networks – There’s a good chance that you’ve been on one of those other social networks before, and might have some friends there whose real name you didn’t know. If you head to your Google Profile, you can add any of your other social network handles in the “Other Names” field. By adding those names, other users can search by them.Customizing your world to Google+There are also a handfull of tricks you can do to extend Google+ beyond just the browser and the app. These tools will make it easy for you to either experience Google+ all over the internet, or simply provide a different viewing experience.Google+ Black App – It’s no secret anymore that an all white background can nuke your battery pretty quick on most Android phones, since it uses the most power from your screen. However, some enterprising Android developers managed to solve that problem in Google+ by releasing a variant of the Google+ app where all the white has been replaced with black.Surplus Google+ Extension – This simple tool offers you the notifications box in a Chrome extension, giving you the ability to see the same notifications you would see on any of the Google websites. Additionally, since it works with Chrome, you can enable desktop notifications and notification sounds to your Google+ experience.Beautify G+ – This Chrome Extension locks the Menubar as well as the left and right columns of Google+ into fixed positions, allowing you to scroll through your streams and Circles and still have access to all of your Google+ functions. (Thanks Aaron!)Facebook, Twitter, and Google+You’re probably not one of the early adopters to Google+ that I saw shouting “Goodbye Facebook!” from the tops of the internet these past few weeks, but you might be a little concerned about spending time managing multiple social networks. As of right now, Google’s not ready to release API’s for Google+, so we’re not likely to see it integrated into things like Tweetdeck anytime soon. However, there are tools you can use to help manage your social net, or to just move away from them entirely.Extended Share for Google Plus –  This Chrome Web Store tool injects a “Send to” link on each post in Google+, allowing you to share the content with Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn in just 2 clicks.Picknzip.com – This website is a tool for those interested in exporting their data from Facebook. It’s an extremely simple tool with a great UI allowing you to export contacts, photos, and more. It’s not a bulk export tool, either. You’re presented with a large menu with thumbnails where you can pick and choose which information or images you want to export. When you’re finished, the information can be downloaded in either a PDF or a ZIP. (Thanks Jake!)Facebook theme for Google+ – Maybe you don’t want to been cheating on your other social network. Maybe you’ve got an in-law who you want to move to Google+ but can’t get over their fear of change. Maybe you’re like PCMag.com’s Editor in Cheif Lance Ulanoff and just miss all the blue. Whatever your reason, the Google+ :Facebook Stylish extension will create a very similar look to Facebook when you try to use Google+. (Thanks TechCrunch)This is the kind of support for this service we’ve seen in just the two quick weeks since it’s been public. What will happen when Google releases API’s? Will we see a mad rush of Google+ clients like we did with Twitter?  Did we miss a trick that you have discovered? Sound off in the comments! Don’t forget there’s also the Google+ Cheat Sheet to help you out too.last_img read more

Dozens of lenders cutting fixed rates

first_imgDozens of lenders are slashing their fixed rates by more than May’s RBA cash rate cut.Eleven lenders have cut their fixed rates on two-year loans by up to 0.50 per cent. Thirteen lenders have dropped their fixed rates on three-year loans by more than 0.25 per cent. Some have cut rates by 0.50 per cent on three year fixed loans.Resi Mortgage Corporation’s chief executive officer Angelo Malizis said fixed rates were nearing the bottom of the cycle. “The discussions I’ve had with economists is they expect rates to come off a little bit more but as soon as we have one more variable rate deduction they expect fixed rates to start nudging upwards.” Source: Herald Sun Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Greeces jobless rate rising

first_imgGreek unemployment started to rise again in December following 14 months of gradual decline, reaching 26 per cent according to figures released by the Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT).The number of employed people declined by 24,453 from November 2014, while the jobless number posted a marginal decline of just 296. That brought about a small increase in the unemployment rate from November’s 25.9 per cent. In December 2013 the rate had come to 27.3 per cent.The negative signs had first emerged from the Ergani register figures supplied by the Labour Ministry, showing a negative flow in employment in the last few months of 2014.The unemployment rate had peaked at 28 per cent in September 2013 before starting its decline in October 2013, with only February and April 2014 showing no change to the seasonally adjusted rate.Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Samsung Sets Up Note 7 Exchange Booths at Major Airports

first_imgThe Galaxy Note 7 is a complete disaster for Samsung. Not only has it been recalled once, but twice, and now it’s not going to be sold anymore. It’s even illegal to try and take one aboard a flight in the US and Samsung has had to ship out fireproof packaging in order for owners to safely mail back their faulty handsets.Now there’s another way to return your Note 7, and frequent travelers will be very happy to hear that Samsung is setting up Note 7 exchange booths at major airports around the world. Yes, that’s how big this problem is for Samsung–it needs manned booths at lots of airports.So far, the booths have been spotted at airports in Australia, South Korea, and the US, but more are sure to appear. An official customer service representative will be available at each booth to ensure your data is safely transferred off the fire-risk handset and on to another device. With Samsung actively trying to help Note 7 users buy another Samsung device, I’m sure the booths will be well-stocked with shiny, new alternatives. You may even get a $100 bill credit.These booths will be an especially welcome site for any frequent flyer who doesn’t have time to travel to a store, or who purchased their Note 7 in a country they won’t be returning to for months. All they need to do is allow enough time for the booth rep to carry out the data transfer and get them setup on a new handset.If nothing else, you’ve got to commend Samsung for its response to releasing a dangerous smartphone. They are trying really hard to get all the handsets back and ensure owners aren’t left without a phone. It’s just a real shame it happened in the first place, I hear the Note 7 was a great piece of kit.last_img read more

Kenai Early Run King Salmon Restricted To Catch And Release

first_imgFrom May 1 through June 30, king salmon of any size may not be retained in the Kenai River from the mouth upstream to the outlet of Skilak Lake. That restriction will continue July 1 through July 31, in the waters from an ADF&G regulatory marker located approximately 300 yards downstream from the mouth of Slikok Creek upstream to the outlet of Skilak Lake. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) announced on Thursday the sport fishing regulation restrictions for the early-run king salmon in the Kenai River to catch and release only. However, from July 1- July 31, anglers will be able to retain king salmon in the Kenai River from the mouth upstream to the ADF&G markers 300 yards downstream from Slikok Creek. In this section, bait is allowed; however, only a single hook lure or fly may be used during this time. This includes the Kenai River drainage downstream of the outlet of Skilak Lake effective 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, May 1 through 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, July 31. Only one, unbaited, single-hook artificial lure may be used in the waters restricted to catch-and-release. King salmon caught may not be removed from the water and must be released immediately. Area Management Biologist Colton Lipka: “In an effort to protect our king salmon fishery resources, which are important to anglers and our fishery managers, and ensure our fishery management is consistent with the regulatory management plan, the early king salmon run on the Kenai River is restricted to non-retention in an effort to meet our 2019 early-run escapement goal. Anglers have noticed that the Kenai River king salmon and other king salmon stocks throughout Cook Inlet are experiencing an extended period of low productivity and restricting the fishery preseason is warranted.” ADF&G staff will be closely monitoring this fishery in season and if data assessment projects indicate further action is warranted in season actions may be taken.last_img read more

Costa Rica Foreign Ministry requests clarification from US on alleged spying

first_imgNo related posts. The Costa Rican Foreign Ministry sent a formal letter to the United States Embassy in San José on Wednesday requesting clarification aboutalleged spying by the U.S. National Security Agency in the country.The letter, signed by Vice Minister Luis Fernando Salazar, requested that U.S. authorities “confirm the veracity of the reports and, if they are true, explain the reach of these programs.”The request followed reports in the Brazilian newspaper O Globo Tuesday alleging NSA monitoring of electronic and telephone communications in Latin American countries under the controversial program “Prism,” according to documents obtained by the daily from former-intelligence contractor Edward Snowden.Mexico, Brazil and Colombia were the top targets of the supposed snooping, with Costa Rica listed alongside several other countries in the region under regular but less intensive surveillance by the spy agency. When contacted for comment earlier this week, Eric Turner, press officer for the U.S. Embassy in Costa Rica, said that it is not policy to comment on individual allegations of spying and that the department handles these concerns through bilateral diplomatic channels.The press representative added that the U.S. collects the same kind of foreign intelligence as other nations.Diplomatic platitudes, however, did little to assuage outrage from Latin American governments over the supposed surveillance.Costa Rican President Laura Chinchilla said Tuesday that she was “uncomfortable” with the idea of the NSA spying on communications from Costa Rica.Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff ordered an investigation into the report of electronic spying on Brazilian citizens and companies.“It sends chills up my spine when we learn that they are spying on us through their intelligence services in Brazil,” Argentine President Cristina Kirchner said, referring to another O Globo report that the United States maintained a satellite spy base in Brasilia at least until 2002. The tensions are more awkward for close U.S. allies listed as surveillance targets by the newspaper report. Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto said that would be “completely unacceptable” if the allegations were true but added that the neighboring countries maintain relations of “respect and cordiality.”Mexico and the United States have worked closely in the battle against drug trafficking in recent years, with the U.S. government earmarking $1.9 billion in law enforcement training and equipment.Costa Rica received $18.4 million in direct security spending from the U.S. in 2012, reported The Associated Press. Kirchner called on Latin American countries to use today’s meeting of the customs union Mercosur in Uruguay to make a collective statement about the allegations.Costa Rican Foreign Minister Ernesto Castillo is in the South American country on Friday, the Foreign Ministry said.Latin America has become one of the top regions for the 30-year-old whistleblower to accept asylum. After Bolivian President Evo Morales’ airplane was rerouted from Moscow to Vienna last week on suspicions that Snowden was on board, he has received asylum offers from Bolivia, Nicaragua and Venezuela.  Facebook Commentslast_img read more

EU provisionally OKs Serbia membership talks

first_img Top ways to honor our heroes on Veterans Day The EU ministers meeting in Luxembourg also proposed negotiations for closer ties with Kosovo, a possible step on the way of membership talks. Serbia hopes that the talks will pave the way for foreign investment and unblock access to the bloc’s pre-entry funds.Serbia’s neighbor Croatia will join the EU on July 1 as the bloc’s 28th member.A vital breakthrough came April 19, when Serbia and Kosovo reached a historic agreement to normalize relations between the Balkan rivals and end years of acrimony.“Both countries worked very hard in recent months on the normalization of their relations,” said German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle. “We welcome this and it deserves a positive European response,” he said.Kosovo, a former province of Serbia, declared independence in 2008. Over the years, Belgrade has said it would never recognize the sovereignty of Kosovo, which is considered by Serbia’s nationalists to be the cradle of the country’s medieval statehood and religion.Kosovo has been recognized by more than 90 countries including the U.S. and 22 of the EU’s 27 members.Membership negotiations can take years, since any new EU nation has to bring reams of legislation into line with EU standards, from farm policy to human rights and legal issues. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Serbia has already made several reforms to clear the way for the start of negotiations.After starting out as a largely western European group, the EU has steadily expanded east and into the Balkans to bring in several nations that were once dominated by communist regimes.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
