UN already assessing Gaza relief needs on first full day of halt

19 January 2009The United Nations has already started assessing the devastating damage and relief needs in the Gaza Strip on the first full day of a truce in fighting between Israel and Hamas, with the overall bill possibly reaching billions of dollars, amid a feeling of “overwhelming grief” among the 1.5 million inhabitants there, senior officials said today. “The pervasive sense here among the population is one of overwhelming grief, so many families have been destroyed in so many ways,” the top UN official in Gaza reported from ground zero, noting that at his last briefing on Friday he had hoped they would not have a further death toll. “But we did, and again the number of children that were killed since Friday were 42 out of 159 in total,” Gaza Director of Operations of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) John Ging to journalists in New York by video link, adding that two of those children died in an UNRWA school that was shelled on Saturday.“Another terrible tragedy, two little boys, two brothers, five and seven, indisputably innocent, but also now dead,” he added. “What we have now is people back out, trying to come to terms with what has happened.”According to Palestinian figures that the UN has called credible, the casualty toll from the thee week offensive, which Israel said it launched to stop Hamas rocket attacks against it from Gaza, now stands at 1,340 dead, 460 of the children and 106 women, and 5,320 wounded, 1,855 of them children and 795 women, with a large proportion of the injuries severe, including burns and amputations. Thirteen Israeli were reported killed, including four from rocket fire.“It may not be very clear who actually won this conflict, if that concept means anything in Gaza but it’s pretty clear who lost and that’s the civilian population of Gaza, and to a much lesser extent the civilian population of southern Israel,” UN Under-Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator John Holmes told the same news briefing, adding that he intended to visit Gaza in the next few days.He said all the main crossings, which Israel has frequently closed in response to Hamas rocket attacks, were open today, and infrastructure repairs had allowed 100,000 more people to receive water, although 400,000 were still without it, but sewage was still flooding the streets of some towns in the north. Some 50 UN facilities were damaged. The number of supply trucks that crossed over into Gaza today topped 170, but this was relatively few compared to the daily rate of over 600 in 2005. Mr. Holmes said a Flash Appeal for urgent funding would be launched within 10 days, and while declining to give specific figures, he put the humanitarian relief needs in the hundreds of millions of dollars, and the overall bill including reconstruction as likely to be in the billions.Mr. Ging said that although he expected 20,000 of the people who had sought refuge in UNRWA schools to return to their homes tonight, that would still leave 35,000 seeking shelter. Aid operations are now running at full swing and people have access to basic aid, but it will still take a couple of days to repair infrastructure to supply water, he added.He stressed the terrible scenes of people removing bodies from the rubble. “It’s a really traumatic time for everybody,” he said. There’s a sense of relief that the fighting has stopped and now the challenge facing us is daunting…“My message to everybody is a simple one. We need to, number one, to ensure for the people of Gaza that they will be confident that accountability will be achieved for them, for their loss, through a legal process. Otherwise we concede to the agenda of extremism which is the rule of the gun. And secondly, and equally important, is to restore them to a dignified existence.“The people here have paid the price once again. The death toll is evidence of the price they have paid. We have to prioritize them. There are political complexities, of course, to overcome operational challenges.“But the bottom line is to restore them to a dignified existence, to give them a perspective which is positive, to mitigate against the agenda of extremism here to which violence is very much an important component. It feeds extremism and poverty and despair. To counter all of that we need to restart the economy here and that will involve opening up the crossing points, and not just for humanitarian assistance but to reactivate the economy.”The UN Development Programme (UNDP), in its capacity as facilitator of the UN early recovery team, has already announced that it will work with the West-Bank Palestinian Authority to assess damage and devise plans for rebuilding. The PA is committed to a two-state solution with both Israel and Palestine living side by aside in peace, while Hamas, which seized power in Gaza from the PA in 2007, does not recognize Israel’s right to exist.Immediate responses will include the removal of unexploded ordnance and the clearing of rubble so that social and economic reconstruction may begin.Meanwhile, the UN World Food Programme (WFP) Lifeline Gaza, launched a week ago at Egypt’s border with Gaza to raise awareness and resources for victims of the conflict, has already helped deliver urgently needed nutritious food in Khan (south), Der el Balah (centre) and Gaza City. Lifeline Gaza seeks $81 million for food and logistics for 365,000 people in peril. read more

New CARICOM Chair wants to create worlds first climate resilient region

New CARICOM Chair wants to create world’s first climate resilient region Incoming Chairman of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), Haiti’s President Jovenel Moïse says the regional grouping is moving towards creating the world’s first climate resilient region in the year ahead.Moise made the statement as he reflecting on the devastation caused by several natural disasters in the Caribbean during 2017.He said as “2018 dawns for the Caribbean Community, with the prospect of seizing an opportunity out of a crisis. As we begin the rebuilding process after the devastating hurricanes of last September, as well Hurricane Matthew, which pounded the region on October 3-4 , 2016, we do so with the aim of creating the first climate resilient Region in the world,” while delivering his New Year’s Message.Incoming CARICOM Chairman JoveAccording to the new CARICOM leader, it is an absolute necessity to create a climate smart Region given the effects of climate change which have brought droughts, mega hurricanes, heavy floods and unusual weather patterns, all of which adversely affect our development.“The social and economic gains that we have made individually and collectively must be protected against the onslaught of nature. The CARICOM Member States’, as well as the region’s non-member States’ production of greenhouse gases, is practically nil, even though they bear a disproportionate share of the consequences,” he further stated.Moïse stated too that the goodwill and pledges which have been forthcoming from the international community at two major global conferences in New York and Paris gives the Region hope that the necessary support to achieve its objective will be forthcoming.

Letter Govts approach to matters of national importance is incoherent

Dear Editor,The confusion that has emerged regarding the appointment of a new Board of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (Guysuco) has brought, once again, to the fore what could only be described as the Administration’s shifting goalpost approach to the sugar industry. It can well be argued that the Coalition Government’s approach to many pressing matters of national importance is also incoherent and our policymakers are reactive rather than being proactive.While I will refrain from commenting on the individuals supposedly named, though I have reservations, the bungling mess that has ensued is sadly symptomatic of our Administration.  When one looks at the Administration’s changing positions regarding sugar, it is not difficult to reach such conclusions.Recall, the Sugar Commission of Inquiry. The APNU/AFC manifesto said the “APNU+AFC will convene a Commission of Inquiry into the operations of the Guyana Sugar Corporation… [to] review, analyze and recommend the way forward for the Guyana Sugar Industry, including options for infusing critical investments and the optimum utilisation of its valuable capital infrastructure”.  The Government on appointing that Commission of Inquiry said in a GINA report of June 26, 2015 that “…the eleven-member Commission…will develop a 15-year plan which is expected to bring the industry back to profitability to ensure long-term environmental and economic sustainability.” Then who can forget Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo saying at the National Cane Farmers Conference, according to an August 15, 2015 news report, that “…there was no question of Government scaling down or abandoning the industry”.After all of that and in spite the Sugar Commission saying no estate should be closed, the Government decided to close Wales Estate and President David Granger, in the January 26, 2016, is reported to have said that “The COI is not gospel”.Though from the previous statements, in the pre and post May, 2015 election, rationally one could conclude that the COI would guide the Administration’s approach to sugar. The President, went further saying “arrangements are going to be made over the next 11 months to ensure that the workers don’t get hurt, that they can be reemployed”. Well, we all know how that turned out and today the Wales workers, the cane farmers and their dependents have been hurt and remain jobless.Then after all that, President Granger, in the February 05, 2016 Guyana Chronicle, said “…it’s unlikely that (closure of another estate) is contemplated”. But just months after, the Government announced that Skeldon was to be sold and Rose Hall and Enmore closed.The President in the Chronicle article also reportedly said “…the CoI report would be discussed in the National Assembly, after which there would be a national consultation on the state of the sugar industry”. Again, time has shown that the President’s undertaking was unfulfilled.It should not be forgotten that the Government earlier this year voted against a motion which called for the Sugar COI report to be discussed by the Economic Services Committee.And, there was no national consultation as the President committed would be done. In fact, the sugar unions in spite of their efforts have contended that their engagements with the Administration remained wanting.Now the Government, in an about-turn of sorts, has decided to divest Rose Hall and Enmore rather than close those estates and move into diversification activities as it initially decided.Nevertheless, nearly 5,000 workers have been sent home and entire communities are now finding themselves in troubled waters. Furthermore, the diversification activities at Wales, it appears, have been shelved after millions of dollars were spent and hundreds of man and machine hours expended. And we are now told that $30 billion is required for GuySuCo over the next four (4) years.When one looks at the totality of the Government’s confused, disjointed and not well-thought-out adventure in the sugar industry one reaches the sad conclusion that the Government was not and is not serious about the sugar industry and the people who depend on it for their livelihoods.The ‘seat of your pants’ decision-making as we have seen playing out cannot be the modus operandi of any Government especially when the implications are so terrible.  As the APNU+AFC said during the 2015 campaign “IT IS TIME” that our leaders stop jetting off to exotic lands and take time to work in the interest of the people and our country.Yours faithfully,Patricia Persaud Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedLetters: Government sugar policy not clear at allSeptember 3, 2018In “Letters”Mass firing of sugar workers: AFC supports move, says sugar is ‘terminally ill’- RamjattanDecember 8, 2017In “latest news”Jagdeo blasts Gov’t over impending decision to close LBI estateApril 14, 2016In “latest news” read more

Canberra Glendi shines

first_imgCanberra’s 2016 Greek Glendi drew in record crowds last weekend, and with more volunteers than ever the event demonstrated the dynamism and passion of ACT’s Greek community.On Sunday the Glendi owned the main Harmony stage – the focus of the 2016 National Multicultural Festival, and while the Aegean Groove band blasted out a lively set to kick off proceedings, it was crowd favourites the multi-generational Canberra Hellenic Dancers who stole the show. The array of traditional dances (performed by 200 performers) was as enticing as the food on offer in the nearby stalls, as thousands of festivalgoers basked in hot sunshine amid wafting smoke from charcoal ovens and sizzling souvlaki. Even the long queues failed to deter a Canberra audience hungry for Hellenic delights.Over the course of the weekend an estimated 280,000 people descended on the city centre for the festival – 10,000 more than in 2015. ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr opened the Glendi alongside the Territory’s Multicultural Affairs Minister Yvette Berry, Greece’s new Ambassador to Australia Ekaterini Xagorari, and High Commissioner for Cyprus Ioanna Malliotis. In his speech, the chief minister paid tribute to the contribution of the Hellenic community to the ACT’s economic and cultural life over generations. Reflecting on Sunday’s success, Glendi subcommittee vice-chair Georgia Alexandrou told Neos Kosmos that she was delighted the 2016 event had set a new benchmark for community involvement.“We had a record number of volunteers, with 150 people helping to prepare food, set up, cook, serve, pack up and clean. What a great community effort it has been.”Mrs Alexandrou said the biggest satisfaction for the organising committee was “to see the younger generation working next to their parents and grandparents – Yiayia and Pappou – learning, sharing experiences and laughing together.“The contribution of our sponsors, with the Hellenic Club as our premium sponsor, and the hard work of all the volunteers contributed greatly to our goal; to raise money for work we’re planning to undertake at St Nicholas Church before its 50th birthday celebration next year. Once again we proved to all that working united, we can achieve more.”Steve Kalenderidis, president of the Greek Orthodox Community of Canberra, said he was heartened by the greater number of younger volunteers involved in this year’s event.“I thought everything went really well. It’s important to bring people together and I feel my biggest challenge as the Community’s president is to get younger members of the community involved, not just the very young, but middle-aged members of the community.“This is about continuing heritage. We had 200 young people take part in the dance events and for them it’s the highlight of the year.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Horror Noire Continues Scariest Black History Month Yet

first_img Watch These Movies Before ‘Don’t Let Go’‘Cannon Busters’ Is The Black Anime We’ve Been Waiting… Stay on target Horror movies are especially effective when they tap into real-life fears and exaggerate them to truly terrifying proportions. What if your nightmares could actually hurt you? What if there was something actually scary in the dark? What if your dead children came back to life and tried to kill you?And as we’ve said before, the reason why horror centering around Black people works so well is that the actual Black experience is already so horrific and violent in a white supremacist society that you don’t need to change it that much to make it scary. Just turn on the news and see what’s happening in Virginia (and everywhere in America). Ask Liam Neeson about!That’s why there’s such a rich tradition of Black horror movies. And if you want to learn more now you can with Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror, an original documentary on horror movie streaming service Shudder.The documentary is based on the book by Dr. Robin R. Means Coleman and explores how horror filmmaking and Black filmmaking have been entwined throughout the decades, how horror is such a potent vehicle for Black art. You’ve got your Blaculas, your Black Frankensteins, your hauntings in both slave plantations and Chicago housing projects. And don’t even get us started on zombies, a Haitian nightmare of being a slave even after death reworked into Romero’s surprisingly socially conscious 1968 Night of the Living Dead kicking off the whole undead craze.Horror Noire also features interviews with the Black artists behind these projects. Horror filmmaking tends to attract more outsider artists with its looser restrictions and limited budgets. So combine that with already being marginalized in the studio system because of your race and it’s a perfect fit. Guests include Candyman himself Tony Todd and Jordan Peele, the modern Black horror mastermind behind Get Out, the upcoming Us, and the Twilight Zone reboot.Horror Noire is streaming now on Shudder.

Forestry Jobs Lost But Haines May Retain Part Of Office

first_imgHaines State Forest (Credit: Flickr/~dgies)Two forester jobs in Haines and two in Ketchikan are wiped out in the state budget approved by the legislature earlier this week. Gov. Bill Walker’s proposed changes to that budget would add some money back into the Department of Natural Resources, but they wouldn’t bring back Southeast forester jobs. However, the two-person Haines State Forest office won’t be completely lost.Budget reductions will likely force Director of Forestry Chris Maisch to cut 25 jobs and 10 internships around the state.“It’s been probably my biggest professional challenge as a manager and as a forester,” Maisch said. “And I’ve been doing this type of work for over 33 years.”In Haines, the two foresters make up the entire local office. They manage timber sales, maintain access roads, take charge of fire prevention. Losing both of those jobs would leave Haines State Forest management to someone in Juneau or Ketchikan.“We know the community depends on a lot on the access, the firewood and the opportunity to have some economic development associated with the forest,” Maisch said. “We felt it was important to support residents in the community of Haines.”Maisch says, out of all the towns and cities that are losing forestry staff, Haines has been the most outspoken.“I want people to know that we were listening and paying attention to that,” he said. “It does mean that we dug a little deeper to try and improve the situation.”Maisch didn’t want to leave Haines completely unmanned. So, DNR Forestry reallocated $106,000 to fund a seasonal, 9-month forester job in Haines. That money pays for salary and benefits as well as the office, utilities, fuel and a vehicle.Along with losing about one and a third employees in Haines, starting in July, Ketchikan will lose two foresters. That downsizes their office to four – three foresters and one administrator.“So we will obviously not have as much manpower as we once had to do forest management activity across Southeast Alaska,” Maisch said. “We will have enough to continue the program, but the remaining staff will be stretched thinner and have to travel more to do the work that needs to be completed across Southeast.”It’s too soon to say whether one of the current Haines foresters will move into the seasonal job come July. Roy Josephson and Greg Palmieri more than 30 years of experience combined managing the forest in Haines.Maisch thinks the seasonal position in Haines is sustainable. He says revenue from big timber sales like the 800-acre proposed Baby Brown sale would help, but it’s not necessary to keep the position.However, if the state makes more cuts to DNR Forestry in coming years, Maisch says there are no guarantees.last_img read more

Government schools witness huge surge in admissions

first_imgTirupati: Taking everyone by surprise, the demand for seats in government schools in Chittoor district has recorded a steep increase this academic year. What is more significant was that government schools got 52,650 new admissions this year. Of them, 27, 169 joined in first class and 25,481 have been admitted in various classes and they have come from private schools. Even, the Education department officials have not expected such increase in demand for government schools. Explaining the reasons, both teachers and parents have maintained that the performance of government schools has been improving a lot. Also Read – Rs 65.30lakhs Exgratia paid to deceased family Advertise With Us These schools were having experienced and qualified faculty, virtual classrooms and other attractions. The performance of government school students in Class X examinations was also improving over the years, said a teacher. Another factor that might have helped for the increase in demand was the reduction in the payment capacity of parents due to continuous droughts, said another teacher. There was another opinion that Amma Vodi scheme has also helped for the increase in enrolment for admissions in government schools as the parents initially thought that scheme would be applicable for government schools only. Also Read – Three of a family commits suicide at Amalapuram in East Godavari Advertise With Us The shifting of thousands of students from private schools to government schools should be seen from this perspective, the teachers argue, who demanded the government to confine the scheme only to the mothers of government school children. Some government schools in the district have been performing extraordinarily well which have already displayed ‘No seats’ boards. Vivekananda Municipal School in Madanapalle was the first such school which has gained much popularity among public and parents have queued up to admit their children there. Advertise With Us “Availability of English Medium, free textbooks and uniforms, introduction of modern method of teaching by experienced faculty are the prime factors for admitting our two children in government school, said L Parameswari of Tirupati. DEO Dr K Panduranga Swamy told The Hans India that this trend will increase the responsibility of teachers, who need to fulfil the aspirations of the parents and students. When asked about the faculty availability, he said that several teachers will get promotions in the next few days to high schools. For primary schools, additional teachers may be required. He also said that they have been taking steps to provide additional textbooks to the newly joined students. Now, it’s for the government to take steps to strengthen government schools and keep up the momentum by completing the recruitment of teachers without further delay, he said.last_img read more

Minecraft is more popular than Call of Duty on Xbox Live

first_imgIf there was ever any doubt that Minecraft was one of the most popular games of all time, let that doubt be wiped away now. Incredibly, Xbox Live gamers actually enjoy building things more than shooting each other. The latest stats show Minecraft is now more popular than Call of Duty on Microsoft’s console.Xbox Live activity for last week (starting October 15) showed Minecraft to be the most played game for the last 7 days beating Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which sits in the number two spot, and Fifa 13 which is third. The statistics were compiled by totaling unique users who were connected to Xbox Live across the globe.It’s no surprise that Minecraft on Xbox 360 has seen so much success on the Xbox 360. When the game first launched it made a profit within its first hour of release, but even so, it takes a lot to beat the ever popular COD series. Currently, Minecraft‘s console version is exclusive to Xbox 360 and 4J Studios has done a great job of keeping it updated and running smoothly to keep fans happy. It’s also worth mentioning how impressive it is for an Xbox Arcade game to be beating full retail games, especially recent releases such as Borderlands 2 and even Xbox favorite Halo: Reach.It’s unclear how long Minecraft’s popularity will last, especially with some huge new games coming out soon such as Call of Duty Black Ops 2, but I’m sure developer Mojang and Notch will be celebrating while they can.via thesixthaxislast_img read more
