Annan opens World Summit with plea not to let down billions around

The 2005 World Summit, the largest gathering ever of international leaders, opened at United Nations Headquarters in New York today with a warning from Secretary-General Kofi Annan that “millions of lives and the hopes of billions” rest on fulfilling the pledges contained in the meeting’s outcome document. Listing the proposals, ranging from a condemnation of terrorism in all its forms to the responsibility to protect populations from genocide to figting poverty, hunger and disease, to the establishment of a Peacebuilding Commission and a strengthened Human Rights Commission, Mr. Annan also regretted the omission of clauses dealing with nuclear non-proliferation, disarmament and Security Council reform. “We must keep working with determination on the tough issues on which progress is urgent but has not yet been achieved,” he told 153 Heads of State and Government assembled in the General Assembly Hall.“Because one thing has emerged clearly from the process on which we embarked two years ago: whatever our differences, in our interdependent world, we stand or fall together.”Mr. Annan pointed to agreements reached in the outcome document after the drafting committee spent two weeks in marathon negotiations thrashing out proposals locking in progress to reach the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the targets set by the 2000 Summit to slash a host of socio-economic ills, such as extreme poverty, hunger, infant and maternal mortality and lack of access to education, all by 2015. “Millions of lives, and the hopes of billions, rest on the implementation of these and other pledges to fight poverty, disease, illiteracy and inequality, and on development remaining at the centre of trade negotiations in the year ahead,” he declared.“Your adoption of the outcome document will achieve vital breakthroughs in other areas as well,” he said.“For the first time, you will accept, clearly and unambiguously, that you have a collective responsibility to protect populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity… Excellencies, you will be pledged to act if another Rwanda looms,” he added, referring to the 1994 genocide in which extremist Hutus massacred an estimated 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus.He noted that the outcome document amounted to a far-reaching package of changes. “But let us be frank with each other, and the peoples of the United Nations,” he cautioned. “We have not yet achieved the sweeping and fundamental reform that I and many others believe is required. Sharp differences, some of them substantive and legitimate, have played their part in preventing that.” He called on the leaders to “pick up the pieces” to renew negotiations on nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament. “Weapons of mass destruction pose a grave danger to us all, particularly in a world threatened by terrorists with global ambitions and no inhibitions,” he warned. But the package so far agreed on is a good start, he said, “and the coming years will test our resolve to halve extreme poverty by 2015, to act if genocide looms again, and to improve our success rate in building peace in war-torn countries.” He stressed again and again the need to work together on the issues on which progress had not yet been achieved. “Whatever our differences, in our interdependent world, we stand or fall together,” he said.Mr. Annan warned that ignoring the basic principles of democracy, human rights and the rule of law for the sake of expediency undermines confidence in collective institutions. “That is why a healthy, effective United Nations is so vital,” he declared.“If properly utilized, it can be a unique marriage of power and principle, in the service of all the world’s peoples,” he added, stressing the importance of reforming the world body to restore confidence in its “integrity, impartiality and ability to deliver.” Citing President Franklin Roosevelt’s call for courage to fulfil one’s responsibilities in an imperfect world, the Secretary-General concluded: “I am not sure we have done that yet. But I believe all; of us now understand that we need to do it.“Precisely because our world is so imperfect, we need the United Nations.” read more

Turkmenistan leader says UN must lead in preserving stability strengthening faith in

On a regional level, Turkmenistan supports Central Asian partnerships that strengthen conditions for maintaining lasting peace and stability and successfully reacting to terrorist threats, extremism, organized crime and drug trafficking. As a neutral country and Afghanistan’s immediate neighbour, Turkmenistan has offered to organize an inter-Afghan national dialogue under the auspices of the UN, he said. On the energy and transport front, Mr. Meredov highlighted the plan to construct the Turkmenistan-Pakistan-India gas pipeline and a railway project that would run through Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan. While these projects are instrumental in the transition to peace, the most important prerequisite for peace is disarmament, said Mr. Meredov. “We stand for consistent strengthening of international and regional cooperation in reducing the arsenals of weapons of mass destruction and effective implementation of the non-proliferation regime,” said Mr. Meredov. He called on the UN to get involved in the systematic and strategic planning in the transport sphere. The Ashgabat Declaration adopted at the end of a transport conference in Turkmenistan’s capital earlier this month reflects the need for cooperation to develop transportation infrastructure and to take into consideration the needs of developing countries, including landlocked States. read more

Thousands to attend rally in support of Rajapakse

first_imgThousands of supporters of former Sri Lankan president Mahinda Rajapakse headed for the capital on Monday to rally in support of his controversial nomination as prime minister, as a political crisis deepened.The island nation has been gripped by constitutional turmoil since president Maithripala Sirisena sacked his former ally, prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, on 26 October and appointed Rajapakse in his place.Busloads of Rajapakse followers were set to arrive from across the country for the rally planned near parliament in the capital Colombo.Parliament has been suspended while Rajapakse seeks support for a vote of confidence by tempting defectors from other parties.Tens of thousands attended a rally in support of Wickremesinghe last week, amid warnings from the parliamentary speaker Karu Jayasuriya that the dispute could end in a “bloodbath” if MPs are barred from holding a vote.In his most strongly worded statement to date, the speaker warned Monday he would not recognise Rajapakse as prime minister and that the president had violated the constitution by sacking Wickremesinghe and suspending parliament.”Until the new faction (of Rajapakse) is able to prove a majority in parliament, I will recognise the situation that prevailed prior to 26 October,” Jayasuriya said.Sirisena announced on Sunday that parliament would reconvene on 14 November, a week later than he had promised, prolonging the power struggle that has crippled the country.The speaker said Sirisena had gone back on previous commitments to recall parliament this week.”I have to agree with the majority of parliament who believe that the president’s actions are undemocratic, unconstitutional and against all norms of parliamentary procedure,” Jayasuriya said.While president from 2005 to 2015, Rajapakse ended a 37-year-old Tamil separatist war but has been accused of human rights violations, nepotism and corruption.last_img read more

Sen Elizabeth Warren Selected to Deliver Morgan State University December Commencement Address

first_imgBy Morgan State University NewsroomMorgan State University (MSU) President David Wilson today announced that the senior senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren, will be the keynote speaker for the University’s sixth annual December Commencement Exercises, to be held on Friday, Dec. 14, 2018, at 9:30 a.m. Sen. Warren, who is fresh from a mid-term reelection victory, will deliver her address before a diverse graduating class of nearly 500 students. Sen. Warren will also be one of several distinguished citizens to receive an honorary doctorate from the University during the ceremony. The other honorees include Morgan alumna and former member of the University administration Clara Adams, Ph.D. (Class of 1954) and the founding dean of Morgan’s Clarence M. Mitchell Jr. School of Engineering, Eugene DeLoatch, Ph.D.Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Photo Courtesy of Morgan State University & Office of Elizabeth for MA)“At Morgan, we strive to expose our students to an array of thought leaders by bringing some of the most diverse and powerful voices to campus. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is one of the most progressive entities on the political landscape, and what she has to offer in terms of her experiences and leadership is something that is sure to benefit our students as they leave this institution and begin the journey to become leaders in their own right,” said President Wilson. “We look forward to receiving Sen. Warren’s message and gaining some positive insights and advice that can be applied now as well in the future.”Sen. Warren has served as a law professor for more than 30 years, including nearly 20 years at Harvard Law School, and throughout her professional career has become one of the nation’s top experts on bankruptcy and the financial pressures facing middle-class families. The National Law Journal named her one of the Most Influential Women Lawyers, and she was honored by the Massachusetts Women’s Bar Association with the Lelia J. Robinson Award. Students at Harvard Law School twice recognized her with the Sacks-Freund Award for excellence in teaching.Working in collaboration with other researchers at the University of Texas, Sen. Warren brought national attention to the connection between personal bankruptcy and health care costs. Her groundbreaking research, digging into thousands of court records of bankruptcy filings, revealed the aftermath of family bankruptcies related to astronomical medical expenses. When not examining the everyday effects of financial hardship, she taught courses on commercial law, contracts and bankruptcy and has written more than 100 articles and 11 books, including four national best sellers.In the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, Sen. Warren was selected to serve as chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel to provide some supervision over the Wall Street bailout, also known as TARP. She later was widely credited for the original thinking, political courage and persistence that led to the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which she served as its first director.In the Senate, in addition to fighting to protect taxpayers while holding Wall Street accountable, she’s led the charge to keep dangerous drugs out of circulation in light of the national epidemic of opioid addiction. She’s also become a national leader in the fight to create a level economic playing field for working people across the country. Her focus on education includes developing accountability and tackling the student debt crisis, as well as investing in all educational paths to good-paying jobs. Sen. Warren has served as the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ senior senator since 2013.Sen. Warren, Dr. Clara Adams and Dr. Eugene DeLoatch will each receive an honorary doctorate during the Commencement.A distinguished graduate of Morgan, Dr. Adams has dedicated nearly all of her professional life, 61 years of service in all, to the success of the University. During her tenure at Morgan, Dr. Adams contributed her insights and leadership through her roles as professor of chemistry, chair of the Department of Chemistry, dean of the School of Graduate Studies, vice president for Academic Affairs and most recently, until her retirement, as special assistant to the President. So revered and respected is Dr. Adams for her contributions to Morgan that the honors college is named after her. The Clara I. Adams Honors College has become an intellectual incubator for academically advanced students, producing a diverse population of critical thinkers.Dr. DeLoatch became the inaugural dean of Morgan’s Clarence M. Mitchell Jr. School of Engineering in 1984, and over the next 34 years, he would become the foremost producer of African-American graduates holding engineering degrees. Throughout his professional career, Dr. DeLoatch was an educator, researcher and mentor, committed to promoting engineering to youth and adults, with a particular emphasis on individuals from groups underrepresented in the STEM professions. During the 13-year period from 2002 to 2015, Dr. DeLoatch’s degree-granting programs at Morgan led the nation in the production of African-American electrical and civil engineers at the baccalaureate level. The impact of what he began and built at Morgan is still felt today.About MorganMorgan State University, founded in 1867, is a Carnegie-classified doctoral research institution offering more than 100 academic programs leading to degrees from the baccalaureate to the doctorate. As Maryland’s Preeminent Public Urban Research University, Morgan serves a multiethnic and multiracial student body and seeks to ensure that the doors of higher education are opened as wide as possible to as many as possible.

The study was conducted by Blayne Welk, M.D., M.Sc., of Western University, London, Canada, and colleagues.Gadolinium-based contrast agents are used for enhancement during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Safety concerns have emerged over retained gadolinium in the globus pallidi (an area of the brain). Neurotoxic effects have been seen in animals and when gadolinium is given intrathecally (a type of method for administering a drug) in humans. Consequences of damage to the globus pallidi may include parkinsonian symptoms. For this study, multiple linked administrative databases from Ontario, Canada were used. All patients older than 66 years who underwent an initial MRI between April 2003 and March 2013 were identified. Patients who were exposed to gadolinium-enhanced MRIs were compared with patients who received non-gadolinium-enhanced MRIs.Of the 246,557 patients undergoing at least one MRI (not of the brain or spine) during the study period, 99,739 (40.5 percent) received at least one dose of gadolinium. Among patients who underwent gadolinium-enhanced MRIs, 81.5 percent underwent a single study, and 2.5 percent underwent 4 or more gadolinium-enhanced studies. Incident parkinsonism developed in 1.2 percent of unexposed patients and 1.2 percent of those exposed to gadolinium. No significant association between gadolinium exposure and parkinsonism was found.“This result does not support the hypothesis that gadolinium deposits in the globus pallidi lead to neuronal damage manifesting as parkinsonism. However, reports of other nonspecific symptoms (pain, cognitive changes) after gadolinium exposure require further study,” the authors wrote.

Qualia Adds Custom Reporting to Title Settlement System

first_img qualia software technology Title 2017-01-25 Phil Banker in News, Technology Share January 25, 2017 517 Views center_img Title settlement software Qualia announced the release of its advanced reporting module. The reporting feature equips title and closing professionals with a customizable tool to analyze revenue sources, business relationships and operational efficiency.Nate Baker, CEO of Qualia, detailed that the tool will aid Qualia in expanding relationships. “From our team’s background building small and large agencies, we know the challenge of maintaining and growing relationships with lenders and realtors while guaranteeing the right level of quality,” he said. “We built Qualia Reports to solve that problem.”Within the “Reports” tab, Qualia users can access and create custom reports based on tasks, contacts and any other data involved in the settlement transaction. The flexibility of custom reporting allows users to answer bigger questions about their business pipeline, while also identifying ways to streamline day-to-day operations. Because all the data is already housed in Qualia, reports are automatically generated and available to users at no additional cost.Additionally, Qualia uses artificial intelligence to immediately detect and notify users when they enter a contact record that is similar to a pre-existing record.“Most title agencies have to manually merge duplicate contacts every month; it’s extremely time-consuming and prone to errors. Because Qualia automatically merges duplicate contacts, agents can finally get a simple and fast answer to what business sources are their main revenue drivers and how those sources are trending month-over-month,” Baker said.

Top Stories

first_img Top Stories But even more than that, it is important for Abraham to get his personal life sorted out.“It’s always a concern when there’s off-field issues to deal with,” Keim said, “but at the same time I think that it’s given him an opportunity to step back and look at the situation and realize that if he wants to continue playing football, he’s got to get his life in order.” – / 31 GLENDALE, Ariz. — It appears John Abraham’s absence from Arizona Cardinals training camp may be coming to an end. The linebacker, whose absence was at first deemed to be for personal reasons and then later learned to be related to a June DUI arrest in Georgia, has yet to make his return to the Valley. But according to general manager Steve Keim, he’s expected shortly.“Not right now, but I would expect him in the very near future,” the GM said after practice Wednesday when asked if there was anything he could share on the situation. Does that mean next week?“Sooner than next week.”The Cardinals have one more practice scheduled at University of Phoenix Stadium Thursday before heading to Minnesota for their second preseason game, which will take place Saturday against the Vikings. Given that, it will be known soon enough if Keim’s statement means Abraham will be suiting up for the game.When Abraham does return, the Cardinals will be adding the NFL’s active sack leader, as the linebacker has 133.5 to his name in 14 in the league. Last season, his first with the Cardinals, the veteran tallied a team-best 11.5 sacks, and earned his fifth career Pro Bowl nod. Now 36, the moment Abraham reports the questions will turn to how much the team can expect from him, especially after missing so much time. “He’s got to work himself into playing shape,” Keim said, noting that the team will handle Abraham coming back much in the same way it would a player returning from injury.“A guy coming off 11.5 sacks at 35 years old, you’d like to think that he’s going to still be able to contribute, he’s just got to be able to get his legs back underneath him.” 0 Comments   Share   The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

Turkey seeks to put the entire island under its control

first_imgPresidential Commissioner Photis Photiou said on Sunday that Turkey with its ever – growing aggressiveness against Cyprus seeks to put the entire island under its control.Speaking on Sunday in Xylofagou, at the funeral of Vassilis Yiannaka from Eptakomi, who went missing in 1974 after he was murdered in a mass execution during the Turkish invasion, and whose remains were found in 2017 in Galatia village, Photiou said that Ankara has been showing lately its real intentions as regards the solution of the Cyprus problem.“We have been witnessing its ever–growing aggressiveness,” he said. Turkey, Photiou said, seeks not only to force the Greek Cypriot side to accept the status quo in Cyprus, due to the invasion and the illegal occupation of the island, but also to bring the entire island under its control.Ankara’s provocations in Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone, he stressed, make the resumption of the talks seem impossible under the current circumstances.Unfortunately, Photiou said,  Turkish Cypriot politicians, aligned with “Ankara’s provocative stance”, express positions and demands that are totally unacceptable and beyond any discussion. “Our side is willing to enter into a dialogue and seeks the resumption of the talks, but under conditions that will render the negotiations rational and fruitful,” he said.On the issue of missing persons, the Presidential Commissioner stressed that excavations in the military zones, in the north, are controlled by the Turkish army and that Turkey refuses to grant access to the archives of the Turkish army.He added that Ankara refuses to give information on the relocation of remains from initial burial sites to unknown spots, to hide the Turkish side’s responsibilities for the mass execution of a large number of people. Many testimonies and the findings so far show that a large number of missing persons were executed in various places, said Photiou, speaking of a war crime. You May LikeSolar SolutionsCalifornia – New Program Giving Solar Panels to Homeowners With Electricity Bills Over $100/mthSolar SolutionsUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

outward foreign investment deal Bhartis proposed takeover of South African telecom major MTNvalued at $23 billion finally fell through last week at the altar of populist politics Populismas the term is used in the broad political economy discoursedescribes policy decisions where cynical political motives take primacy over sensible economicsto the detriment of long-term economic performance There is probably no better example of this than the US car industrywhich has repeatedly been propped up by government over many decadesostensibly in the national interestbut continues to be bankrupt nonetheless For Bharti-MTNthe stage was as perfect as it could have been for a merger between Indias biggest telecom operator and Africas largest telecom company Togetherthey would have formed the third largest telecom company in the world and been superbly placed to expand beyond their local markets The priceit seemswas mutually acceptable The formula dictating cash and share swap components was worked out too Hardly surprisingsince both companies had spent many months negotiating all thiswith a large set of bankerslawyers and consultants advising them The only potential twist in the tale lay with MTNs largest shareholder the South African government With a 21 per cent stake in MTNthrough its wholly owned investment corporationit was the single largest shareholder in MTN and thus could virtually veto any deal And as it turns outthe acquisition of MTN a symbol of black empowerment and national pride in South African business by a foreign company was simply not acceptable to the left-leaning Jacob Zuma government The demand for dual listing of Bharti-MTN (that isin both Indian and South African stock markets) was at best a compromise to ensure that MTN continued to have a South African character even after takeover At worstand more likelyit was just a cynical cover-up for deliberately sinking the deal Since India doesnt have capital account convertibilityBharti could not have listed in South Africa The government of South Africa would have surely known that India would not change its policy on convertibility for just one deal Of courseBharti will lose out from the failure of this deal to materialisebut so will MTNa fact which the government of South Africa has ignored in its short-sighted and purely political decision to keep MTN under South African ownership If the objective of the South African government was really to empower black South Africans then a merged company with a global presence that would have grown much faster would have offered more jobs and more opportunities for black South Africans And investors other than the government would have made good money from a sell-out in any case So it isnt clear who has gained national pride maybebut not the average black South African investor or potential employee That essentially sums up the problem with populist political decisions in the world of business They end up compromising efficiencycompetitiveness and growth of firms In Indiawe hardly need a lesson in the damage politics can do to business just look at our public sector companies Many struggle to remain viable business

the support of policy crutches Of coursethe same companies could do well if they were allowed to function as commercial entitiesbut the fact isthey are not All major policy decisions are routed through parent ministries and often through cabinet committees and the cabinet This not only delays decision-making but also brings political considerations into it (note how the home state of the minister of railways always gets the new factories and offices) Ministers and bureaucrats freely use PSUs as fertile grounds for patronage And most PSUs are over-staffed because of social obligation
