Ban Kimoon to hold Darfur crisis talks with head of African Union

13 April 2007Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will hold talks on Monday with the head of the African Union (AU) in a bid to generate momentum for the peace process in Darfur, where the planned deployment of a hybrid UN-AU peacekeeping force has stalled amid differences with the Sudanese Government. Alpha Oumar Konaré, Chairperson of the AU Commission, will be at UN Headquarters in New York on Monday and Tuesday for talks with Mr. Ban and with the two organizations’ special envoys for the Darfur crisis, Jan Eliasson of the UN and Salim Ahmed Salim of the AU. UN spokesperson Marie Okabe said today that Mr. Ban and Mr. Konaré are expected to brief the Security Council on Monday afternoon on the latest developments regarding the conflict engulfing Darfur, where Government forces and allied Janjaweed militias have been fighting rebel groups. More than 200,000 people have been killed and 2 million others displaced from their homes in the fighting, which has led to the destruction of entire villages. There are increasing fears that the conflict is spilling over into neighbouring Chad and the Central African Republic (CAR). Monday’s talks will take place less than a week after a technical-level meeting in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, between the UN, the AU and the Sudanese Government to finalize the measures for the UN “heavy support package” to the current AU peacekeeping mission known as AMIS. The heavy support package is the second phase of the three-step process culminating in the eventual deployment of the hybrid UN-AU force of approximately 17,000 troops and 3,000 police officers. Under the plan, the UN Mission in Sudan (UNMIS) is currently providing AMIS with a “light support package” that includes police advisers, civilian staff and additional resources and technical support. The heavy support package discussed this week in Addis Ababa will feature several hundred UN personnel assisting AMIS. At a mini-summit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, last month with the AU and the UN, Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir agreed to re-double efforts to resolve the Darfur conflict and on “the shared need to move expeditiously ahead” with the hybrid operation. But Sudan later voiced reservations about the plan leading to the hybrid force. read more

UNtrained police deploy across warravaged Liberia

The newly graduated cadets will be working in conflict-torn areas out of police stations that had previously been either overgrown with weeds or overtaken by “renegades, exploiters, rogues, hooligans or factional fighters that used the stations to extort money or carry out their war-like activities,” Mark Kroeker, Civilian Police Commissioner of the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), told the UN News Service.Dubbing these officers “internally displaced police,” he said a key component of their mandate is to conduct community policing, which involves working with the local population and leaders to foster democratic law enforcement.Mr. Kroeker welcomed donations from the United States and China which have supported the effort so far, but said much more funding – not just unfulfilled pledges – is needed to consolidate gains and achieve progress.”We really need [donations] to help give them the fundamental logistics – pens and pencils, paper and log books,” he said, stressing that a new station requires only the most basic supplies in order to function, but even those are lacking.”They don’t even have proper uniforms,” he added. The police officers wear T-shirts and ID cards to identify themselves. Mr. Kroeker said the situation was “pitiful,” and noted that the recruits have “no weapons and no equipment, just their willingness to go out there and do their job.”UN police officers have used their own money to pay for supplies and clothing, while local communities have also pitched in to help the nascent force. Neighbours, Mr. Kroeker said, are “anxious to have the police come back.””If you want schools to open, businesses to thrive, and institutions to start working, you have to have a secure, stable, peaceful, environment and that comes from establishing the rule of law,” he said.The system, he added, “begins with the police.” read more

Royal Bank of Canada reports record third quarter results increases dividend

Royal Bank of Canada reports record third quarter results; increases dividend by David Friend, The Canadian Press Posted Aug 29, 2013 6:23 am MDT TORONTO – Royal Bank of Canada (TSX:RY) added its name to the list of big Canadian banks reporting improved earnings in the third quarter while announcing that it planned to boost its quarterly divided by six per cent.The dividend boost “reflects the confidence we have in our ability to continue to generate solid earnings growth and successfully execute on our disciplined growth strategy by leveraging our strengths, scale and strong capital position,” president and CEO Gordon Nixon said in a conference call Thursday.The bank increased its quarterly dividend by four cents, or six per cent, to 67 cents per share.Canada’s largest bank by assets earned a record $2.3 billion or $1.52 per share in the three months ended July 31, up from $2.24 billion, or $1.47 per share, in the same period a year earlier.Adjusted earnings per share came in at $1.48, which was 10 cents above analyst expectations, according to a survey of analysts by Thomson Reuters.Revenue decreased to $7.72 billion from $7.76 billion.When filtering out certain items, like a favourable tax adjustment and losses related to the acquisition of the remaining stake in RBC Dexia, the bank said earnings were up 12 per cent to $2.21 billion from $1.99 billion.Royal said the results were driven by continued strength across most of its businesses, including record earnings in retail and commercial banking and wealth management.Personal and commercial banking net income was a record $1.18 billion, rising seven per cent from the same time last year, largely due to solid volume growth across all businesses in Canada, which included the recent acquisition of Ally Canada.The bank’s insurance division reported profits fell $19 million to $160 million as higher earnings from a new U.K. annuity contract in the quarter were mostly offset by higher claim costs due to the flooding in Alberta and Ontario.“While the claims did have an impact… they were not material to our business given the claims mitigation process,” Nixon said.“This business continues to make consistent contributions to our diversified earnings stream.”Royal Bank’s wealth management net income increased 51 per cent to a record $236 million, mainly due to higher average fee-based client assets resulting from net sales and capital appreciation. Higher transaction volumes also contributed to the increase.Analysts noted that much of Royal’s strength came from a lower effective tax rate, which Barclays analyst John Aiken estimates added 10 cents per share to the quarter’s earnings.“While we anticipate that consensus earnings estimates are likely to rise coming out of the quarter, the market’s reaction is likely to be more neutral than negative” after the results, he wrote.“While there may be some questions surrounding the quality of the third quarter’s earnings, the strong increase in the dividend indicates the bank’s confidence in its earnings going forward.”Stonecap Securities analyst Brad Smith said that while investors should be pleased with the bank’s overall results, he found some areas that were underwhelming.“The weak capital market results, especially compared to peer achievements in this area, is likely to raise investor concerns given the importance of the segment,” he wrote in a note.The company also announced that its board chair, David O’Brien, will retire effective Dec. 31 and be replaced by director, Kathleen Taylor.Royal Bank is the country’s largest bank by assets and has 80,000 employees serving more than 15 million clients. The bank has operations in Canada, the U.S. and in 44 other countries.Shares of Royal closed up 75 cents at $65.24 on the Toronto Stock Exchange Thursday.

Ohio State softball tries to regain top spot against Penn State and

OSU freshman pitcher Morgan Ray (6) throws a pitch during a game against Maryland on March 26. Credit: Gabriella DiGiovanni | Lantern photographerAlthough the Ohio State softball team is no longer first in the Big Ten, it is hoping to get back on top when it plays five games this week. In their first midweek matchup of the season, the Buckeyes (19-8-1, 4-1-1) are set to face off against Penn State (17-14, 6-0), the current conference leaders, in a home doubleheader Wednesday starting at 4 p.m.OSU is then scheduled to have Thursday off before traveling to New Jersey to face Rutgers (17-20, 2-4) in a weekend series after going 1-1-1 at Wisconsin last weekend. The first of three games is slated to begin at 3 p.m. Friday.OSU coach Kelly Kovach Schoenly expressed no concern about her players being able to handle the packed schedule. “This is actually their favorite part of the season because they get into a groove and want to play every day,” she said. “I don’t worry about their energy at all.”Scouting Penn StateIn its first two Big Ten weekend series, Penn State swept both of its opponents, Rutgers and Michigan State, averaging nine runs per game along the way. This torrid start comes after the Nittany Lions finished with a .507 win percentage in 2015 and only went 9-14 in the Big Ten.Led by senior Macy Jones, Penn State’s offense is outhitting its opponents .327 to .276, and seven Nittany Lions are batting above .300. Jones, who splits her time between the mound and the outfield, has a .747 slugging percentage. In the team’s final game against Michigan State, Jones tallied two home runs and four RBIs.Both the Nittany Lions and the Buckeyes have seven players hitting above .300, but Penn State’s top seven ekes out OSU’s by 18 in the RBI column. From the mound, Penn State boasts this week’s Big Ten Pitcher of the Week, junior Marlaina Laubach. The right-hander has a 0.66 ERA against conference opponents this season and a 2.20 ERA in her 24 appearances overall.OSU junior Shelby Hursh is still putting up destructive numbers when she steps inside the circle for the Buckeyes, notably a 1.93 ERA with 88 strikeouts in 76.1 innings.Against Wisconsin, OSU’s pitching staff had trouble at times limiting big hitting from the offense. Schoenly noted that taking away these decisive innings is a goal for Hursh and her teammates as the season progresses.“We will need to execute some clutch pitches with runners in scoring position. We have done a great job of that in the past and will need to focus in more,” Schoenly said.Scouting RutgersFor the Scarlet Knights, 2016 has not been as fruitful. The team is currently 2-4 in Big Ten play. After being swept in a three-game series by Penn State, Rutgers, which is led by five seniors, clinched two wins against Illinois last weekend.When comparing the Scarlet Knights with their opponents, they are being outhit in all categories except doubles. In the team’s 3-1 win against the Fighting Illini, however, sophomore catcher Sierra Maddox went 3-for-4, including a home run.Infielder Stephanie Huang is currently hitting .385, while shortstop Melanie Slowinski has a .314 batting average and three home runs. The senior duo has combined for 39 RBIs so far this year, already just seven fewer from what they contributed a season ago. The Rutgers pitching staff has a combined 4.18 ERA. Junior Shayla Sweeney has exuded stamina in the circle this season, pitching four complete games so far. The right-hander has also added two saves to her statistics.Clutch hittingAgainst Wisconsin, the bottom of OSU’s order came up big. In Sunday’s doubleheader, sophomore Taylor White and freshman Emily Clark went 5-for-7 and 6-for-8, respectively. White added one home run and a triple to her 2016 total, while Clark chipped in two RBIs and a double.The bottom of the order on Friday, guided by junior Anna Kirk, went 5-for-9, bringing in two runs. Sophomore Becca Gavin, the ninth batter, paved the way for the top of the order with two walks and a sacrifice bunt.Schoenly, while also mentioning the spark Gavin has brought to the team, said she loved the way the bottom of the order delivered.“I love that Taylor White, Emily Clark and Anna Kirk were the catalysts to our success,” she said. “All three are very capable players, and they got hot at the right time.”Aiming for the record bookFor two Buckeyes, 2016 provides a chance to set new program records. Redshirt junior Alex Bayne, a slugging powerhouse despite her 5-foot-5 stature, has already sent 12 shots over the fence this season. The single-season record, held by Sam Marder since 2009, is 19, but Bayne has 23 more games to take the crown for herself.Schoenly acknowledged Buckeye Field’s friendliness toward home runs, though she continued to be enthusiastic about the power her players are showing.“We really hadn’t been hitting too many home runs until we returned home. Now we’re going,” she said. “It’s always nice to see them use their bats in a big way.”Senior catcher Cammi Prantl is pacing toward the career record for doubles. She currently sits in second with 52. The record, held by Krinon Clark, has stood since 1994, but Prantl is only six doubles away from breaking the longstanding number. She already has eight this year and has never put up fewer than 12 during her first three years in Columbus.Coming upThe Buckeyes are set to return home on Wednesday with a nonconference game against Dayton before heading into a weekend series with No. 2 Michigan from April 15 to 17. OSU’s matchup against the Flyers is slated to begin at 6 p.m.This fast-paced schedule is exactly what the Buckeyes need, Schoenly said.“The team has their goals they are working toward, and having less time in between games means they can get there faster,” she said. “And that’s extremely motivating.” read more

Dark Matter at Center of Dwarf Galaxies Heats Up Moves

first_img Researchers Will Probe ‘Euclid Dark Fields’ to Spot Universe’s Far ObjectsWe just Discovered A Galaxy Without Dark Matter, Proving it Exists Scientists found evidence that dark matter can be heated and moved around, as a result of star formation in galaxies.Studying the hypothetical form of matter, a team of researchers from the University of Surrey, Carnegie Mellon University, and ETH Zürich turned their focus on nearby dwarf galaxies.Small, faint, and typically found orbiting larger star systems like our Milky Way, dwarf galaxies could shine some light on the nature of dark matter.Aside from being the title of a stellar novel by Blake Crouch, dark matter is thought to account for a majority of the matter in the Universe. Named because the substance does not appear to interact with observable light, it can be detected only through its gravitational effects.But the key to understanding it, according to the University of Surrey, may lie in how stars are formed in dwarf galaxies.As stars form, gas and dust is blown away from the heart of the galaxy, leaving the core with less matter; that, in turn, affects how much gravity is felt by the remaining dark matter.Less gravitational attraction means more dark matter energy, allowing the material to migrate away from the nebula’s center—an effect known as “dark matter heating.”Scientists found evidence that dark matter can be heated up and moved around, as a result of star formation in galaxies (via University of Surrey)Led by Surrey professor Justin Read, the international team measured the amount of dark matter at the middle of 16 dwarf galaxies with very different star formation histories.Their findings, published in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, suggest that galaxies which stopped forming stars long ago had higher dark matter densities than those still popping out celestial bodies.“We found a truly remarkable relationship between the amount of dark matter at the centers of these tiny dwarfs, and the amount of star formation they have experienced over their lives,” Read, head of the Department of Physics at the University of Surrey, said in a statement. “The dark matter at the centers of the star-forming dwarfs appears to have been ‘heated up’ and pushed out.”The first observational evidence for dark matter heating, this data also provides a new constraint on scientific models: Dark matter must be able to form dwarf galaxies that exhibit a range of central densities, which must relate to the amount of star formation.“This study may be the ‘smoking gun’ evidence that takes us a step closer to understanding what dark matter is,” co-author Matthew Walker of Carnegie Mellon University said. “Our finding that it can be heated up and moved around helps to motivate searches for a dark matter particle.”Moving forward, the group plans to expand their work by measuring the central dark matter density in a larger sample of dwarf galaxies and a wider range of dark matter models.More on Just Discovered a Galaxy Without Dark Matter, Proving It ExistsWe May Have Just Glimpsed Dark Matter, About 240 Million Light Years AwayHow Do We Know Dark Matter And Dark Energy Exist?

She had walked through about a mile of woods and thick briar patches, wearing a short-sleeve shirt, shorts and no shoes in near-freezing temperatures when she saw a light in the distance.The beacon led her to Larry Wilkins’ home, police said, and she knocked on the door. Wilkins answered to find a thin, black-haired girl, whimpering and trembling.“I come to the door and there’s a little girl, 7 years old, bloody nose, bloody arms, bloody legs, one sock, no shoes, crying,” Wilkins, 71, said Saturday. “She told me that her mom and dad were dead, and she had been in a plane crash, and the plane was upside down.”Federal Aviation Administration officials arrived at the crash scene Saturday to try to determine why the small Piper PA-34 crashed, killing four people, including the girl’s parents, Marty Gutzler, 48, and Kimberly Gutzler, 46, authorities said.

Singapore Home Ministry dubs apology by Indianorigin YouTubers

first_imgSingapore : Responding to the apology issued by two Indian-origin YouTubers with regard to a “racist” rap video made by them in response to an e-payment advertisement, the Home Affairs Ministry (MHA) of Singapore on Friday said their statement was “insincere” and showed contempt for other Singaporeans. “This spoofing is a pretence of an apology and in fact shows contempt for the many Singaporeans who have expressed concern at their blatantly racist rap video,” the ministry said. Also Read – US judge dismissed criminal case against Jeffrey Epstein Advertise With Us Preeti Nair and her brother Subhash, a rapper, had posted a statement on social media, apologising “for any hurt that was unintentionally caused” by their video, which is alleged to contain offensive content. Their apology closely followed the wording of the statement issued by creative agency Havas and The Celebrity Agency (TCA), Mediacorp’s celebrity management arm, which were involved in producing the advertisement that featured a Chinese actor in “brown face”. Also Read – Watch: Donald Trump says Florida faces absolute monster hurricane Advertise With Us The advertisement was to show that the e-payment is for everyone. The Nair siblings created their rap video in response to the e-payment advertisement, to call out the racism in it. In their video, they allegedly used vulgar content and the authorities said it crossed the line and insulted Chinese Singaporeans. E-payment firm Nets (Network for Electronics Transfers), which was also involved in the advertising campaign, has apologised as well, reported the local media on Saturday. The MHA said it was not the first time the siblings had expressed racist sentiments. Advertise With Us “About a year ago, Preeti Nair published a video where she acted as a Chinese and mocked the Chinese community’s practices, culture and traditions. She portrayed Chinese as money-minded gamblers,” the ministry said. “Subhas Nair wrote a song recently that says Singapore condones systemic discrimination,” the ministry added. The song was written for Mediacorp as part of this year’s National Day celebrations and had the lyrics, “We live in a system that has normalised us… to walk oblivious to a brown man stopped and ID (identity card) checked,” the ministry said. “This is blatantly false,” added the Ministry. The ministry said it took action whenever there were offensive statements that breached the law, regardless of the race of the offender. “In 2018, a 36-year-old Indian woman published comments that made racial insinuations. Police investigated her. Police in consultation with the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) issued her a stern warning,” the ministry said. It added,”In January this year, the police charged a Chinese man in court with deliberate intent to wound the racial feelings of the Malay population. The man had scrawled racist messages about Malays on walls in void decks and sheltered walkways. His messages had been seen by far fewer people than the videos issued by the Nair siblings.” It also said the police were continuing their investigation and taking advice from the AGC.last_img read more

Chrissy Teigen gives it back to critics reprimanding her for painting Lunas

first_imgChrissy Teigen does not wish to take insights from outsiders on how to raise a child. Well, the mom of two has been receiving some criticism for painting her 3-year-old daughter’s toenails. Earlier on Saturday, Teigen shared a video where she was lounging in the living room watching Sesame Street with daughter Luna Simone. In her video, Teigen did mention how she painted her baby girl’s toenails with hot-pink shade. On the same, Teigen also tweeted, “Doing her nails is my knitting. Kid toes kill me!”Doing her nails is my knitting. Kid toes kill me!— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) June 22, 2019Chrissy Teigen’s postTwitterWhile some of the commenters found it super cool, others were rather sceptical of painting her daughter’s toenails. There were some criticisms that said that Luna was too young for nail paints. In response to the now-deleted tweet, the model and cookbook author wrote, “There she is.” For another tweet which we presume was a jab at the nail paint, Teigen replied, “Well I actually had her drink it so joke’s on you.” For quite some time now, Chrissy Teigen has been dealing with mom-shaming comments and giving it back to them. Even last week, Teigen received a concerned question stating how Luna was a little too late to visit the dentist for the first time.As Teigen captioned on her Instagram post, “So proud of my toons at her first dentist appointment!!” Someone did have something to say. “What age do they start over there? My daughter started seeing a dentist at a yr old.” It is not surprising that celebrities get shamed for anything and everything they do. However, they all have a very good way of combating all the shame that comes their way. Teigen, who is known for her quick wit, is also giving it back to the critics. Chrissy Teigen’s postInstagramDuring a PopSugar Play/Ground event, Teigen did speak about Twitter regrets. She said, “I go for it, then I regret it. I think more now [on Twitter] because you get in trouble. I delete posts — but years after. It’s almost worse when [my fans] send me screen grabs and say, ‘You’re a p - - - y, you deleted that.’ ”last_img read more

You should disable automatic downloads in Chrome right now

first_imgYou should disable automatic downloads in Chrome right now by Martin Brinkmann on May 18, 2017 in Google Chrome – Last Update: May 22, 2018 – 25 commentsGoogle Chrome users on Windows are advised to disable automatic downloads in the web browser to protect authentication data against a new threat discovered recently.The Chrome browser is the most popular browser right now on desktop devices. It is configured to download safe files automatically to the user system without prompt by default.Any file that Chrome users download that passes Google’s safe browsing checks will land in the default download directory automatically. Chrome users who want to pick the download folder instead for downloads need to change that behavior in the options.The new attack, described in detail on the Defense Code website, combines Chrome’s automatic download behavior with Windows Explorer Shell Command File files that have the .scf file extension.The aging format is a plain text file that includes instructions, usually an icon location and limited commands. What’s particularly interesting about the format is that it may load resources from a remote server.Even more problematic is the fact that Windows will process these files as soon as you open the directory they are stored in, and that these files appear without extension in Windows Explorer regardless of settings. This means that attackers could easily hide the file behind a disguised filename such as image.jpg.The attackers use a SMB server location for the icon. What happens then is that the server requests authentication, and that the system will provide that.  While password hashes are submitted, the researchers note that cracking those passwords should not take decades anymore unless they are of the complex kind.Regarding password cracking feasibility, this improved greatly in the past few years with GPU-based cracking. NetNTLMv2 hashcat benchmark for a single Nvidia GTX 1080 card is around 1600 MH/s. That’s 1.6 billion hashes per second. For an 8-character password, GPU rigs of 4 such cards can go through an entire keyspace of upper/lower alphanumeric + most commonly used special characters (!@#$%&) in less than a day. With hundreds of millions leaked passwords resulted from several breaches in the past years (LinkedIn, Myspace), wordlist rule-based cracking can produce surprising results against complex passwords with more entropy.The situation is even worse for users on Windows 8 or 10 machines who authenticate with a Microsoft account, as the account will provide the attacker with access to online services such as Outlook, OneDrive, or Office365 if used by the user.

Poor monsoon rains hit millions of Indian farmers

first_imgThis year’s fickle monsoon has played havoc with millions of Indian farmers. The showers, which normally run from June to September, are crucial in a country where 60 percent of the population works in agriculture and less than half the farmland is irrigated.“Here farming is entirely on God’s mercy. If nature doesn’t bless us, the farmer can’t do anything,” Narwal says.India’s Meteorological Department has said it expects the country to get at least 10 percent less rain this year than during a normal monsoon, but large parts of the country have been hit much harder.In the northwestern state of Haryana, where Narwal’s family has farmed for generations, rainfall is less than half what it should have been. And when the rains finally did come, the crops were already nearly dead, fit only to be used as animal feed.Shriveled old men share a water pipe and one of them points to the skies and shouts “What now, brother?” as they watch men and women carry damaged sugar cane to feed to their cattle. At the edge of fields, young men stand, hands on hips, shaking their heads in dismay. The village is 140 kilometers (87 miles) northwest of New Delhi. Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Sponsored Stories But for the average farmer, who lives and earns from season to season, a poor monsoon means that food must be carefully rationed because he has little money to spend.With dreams of a good harvest, most small- and medium-scale farmers borrow money, often at exorbitant interest rates, from local money lenders to buy seeds and fertilizers and hire tractors to plow the fields.“Now even they won’t give farmers money. They know there are no crops so there’s no chance of recovery,” said Ranbir Singh, as he cleaned up his three acres of dead sugarcane.He already has to pay off loans of 300,000 rupees ($5,400), a fortune for a poor farmer.“Now I will need to borrow more money to feed myself, but lenders will hold back,” he said.With nearly 70 percent of India’s population living in rural areas, farming is vital to the economy. A poor monsoon is expected to further dampen already disappointing growth this year, according Citigroup economist Rohini Malkani.Poor agricultural output could result in growth as low as 5.4 percent in the current fiscal year, down from the bank’s earlier estimates of 6.4 percent, according to the economist’s August report.

Don Shooter shows health improvement Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day By now the sugar cane crop should have been at least eight feet tall (2.4 meters tall). Rice paddy crops would have been lush and emerald green. Small patches of pearl millet, corn and sorghum would have dotted the landscape.But the sun shone on with determination through all of July and most of August so that the cane is now only knee-high at best and most of the rice crop is burnt.The lack of monsoon rains has also been partly to blame for the worst blackout in world history, which cut power to half of India last month. Large-scale farmers were using extra power to pump water from deep aquifers, and little electricity was being generated by hydropower projects.Across the country rains in June and July _ a crucial time for farmers _ were nearly 20 percent below normal.“Now some of the crop is so dry and damaged even our cattle won’t eat it,” says farmer Mahinder Singh, as he watches over the cleaning up of his sugar cane fields.Punjab, the unofficial breadbasket of India, has received less than 40 percent of the rain it should have. Large swaths of western Gujarat and Maharashtra have been declared drought-stricken.The government has said it’s not worried about food scarcity because millions of tons of rice and wheat from earlier bumper harvests are spilling out of state-owned granaries. Associated PressKATHURA, India (AP) – The farmer walks past muddy fields of stunted sugarcane and damaged rice paddies as a light drizzle falls. “Too late, too late,” he says of the rains he has been praying for since many weeks ago.For nearly two months, Satyavan Narwal’s eyes scoured the heavens looking for the monsoon rains that would nourish his crops, but he found nothing and was left with parched earth. Now monsoon showers are soaking the fields _ but late August is much too late for him. “If drought conditions worsen, headline growth could come in lower at 4.9 percent,” she writes.The federal government and many state governments have hesitated to declare a drought for fear of causing panic and because it requires them to assess each farmers’ losses and compensate them.Farmers in Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh state, which have not been given declarations of drought, are losing patience.“What will it take for the government to declare a drought?” asks Narwal. “Will all the farmers have to die first?”Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar said Cabinet ministers would meet later this week to discuss the impact of the poor monsoon.In Kathura village, however, Pankaj Aggarwal, the top district official, brushes aside talk of a drought, saying that the few recent days of rain will revive the crops.Meanwhile, farmers lament the lack of government investment in irrigation and other infrastructure that could protect farmers from the vagaries of the monsoon.“Where are the irrigation canals, the irrigation pumps, the electricity supply that the government keeps promising the farmers?” asked Dharmendra Malik, a farmer and activist in Uttar Pradesh. “You have food grains in your stocks so you’re not worried, but that doesn’t mean you abandon 600 million of your people who tend the fields,” he said.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Hong Kong – Reported by Elite Traveler the Privat

first_imgHong Kong – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle MagazineThe Peninsula Hong Kong celebrates its 82nd anniversary with the launch of Our Hong Kong – a book introducing the city through the eyes of the hotel staff to guests from all over the world.Our Hong Kong features 50 personal narratives that reveal the interest, passion and knowledge of The Peninsula Hong Kong staff. This book, which will be available in all rooms and suites, will take guests on a journey to learn about the lesser known aspects of Hong Kong, such as 500-year-old villages, the little island where prawn paste is still made by hand using centuries-old techniques and rare festivities such as the annual Fire Dragon Dance that pays tribute to the Dragon King in exchange for protection against the Demons of Disease, to name just a few. Enriched by captivating watercolour illustrations by celebrated artist Lorette E Roberts, the book will offer readers the chance to see Hong Kong anew from 50 of their local friends.The event, held in The Lobby of The Peninsula, was hosted by The Hon. Sir Michael Kadoorie, Chairman of The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited. In his speech, Sir Michael announced, “The Peninsula, a Hong Kong icon, represents much of the spirit of Hong Kong a commitment to excellence, a respect of tradition and an eagerness to embrace the future. I was, therefore, particularly pleased that this new book so clearly conveys our deep roots in this community, our sense of belonging and our great pride in our home.”He was joined on stage by three representatives from The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited: Mr Clement Kwok, Chief Executive Officer, Mr Neil Galloway, Chief Financial Officer and Mr Peter Borer, Chief Operating Officer, as well as Ms Rainy Chan, Area Vice President – Hong Kong and Thailand, The Peninsula Hotels and General Manager, The Peninsula Hong Kong.Our Hong Kong was created from the vision of Ms Rainy Chan. She enthuses, “I believe that this book will bring a new dimension to visitors’ experience via personal stories from 50 ‘friends’ based in Hong Kong. They get to share inside information about neighbourhoods where they grew up, their favourite eateries, local spots and their fond memories, thereby offering knowledge that is rarely found in guidebooks on the city.”All members of hotel staff were invited to become a significant part of the hotel’s history by contributing their ideas on what they considered representative of “their” Hong Kong for this book. The selection committee then chose the most interesting ideas and conducted site surveys of the submissions in order to shortlist the final 50 entries that appear in the book.The “Grand Old Lady”, as The Peninsula Hong Kong is often fondly described, has been an integral part of the city’s life for almost a century. The hotel opened her doors for the first time in 1928, and has been welcoming visitors and patrons from all over the world ever since. Many guests see the hotel as their home in Hong Kong and their visits are often with family members who span several generations. Over the years, The Peninsula’s guests have developed special relationships with the hotel, with their stays often made exceptional by staff members who share their knowledge of Hong Kong.As she enters her 83rd year, The Peninsula Hong Kong continues to create special memories for visitors with the Our Hong Kong programme, which will include excursions to unique areas and activities introduced by staff as part of The Peninsula Academy, the hotel’s award-winning Chinese Cultural Experience learning vacation programme, as well as special menus in the hotel’s Chinese restaurant, Spring Moon, featuring classic, home-grown dishes that represent the true culinary essence and heritage of Hong Kong.Photo caption (Left to Right) Mr Clement Kwok, Chief Executive Officer, The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited Sir Michael Kadoorie, Chairman, The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited Ms Rainy Chan, Area Vice President – Hong Kong and Thailand, The Peninsula Hotels and General Manager, The Peninsula Hong Kong Mr Neil Galloway, Chief Financial Officer, The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited Mr Peter Borer, Chief Operating Officer, The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limitedwww.peninsulahotels.comlast_img read more
