UN humanitarian partners launch health plan in crisistorn eastern Ukraine

The $14 million dollar humanitarian response plan, developed by the UN World Health Organization (WHO) and its partners, aims to restore access to healthcare, provide medicine and equipment and strengthen community‐based mental health support services. “We are tailoring our response activities to care for each of these communities, and to prepare in advance for the coming of winter, which will only exacerbate the health crisis people will face,” said Dorit Nitzan, WHO’s representative in Ukraine in a statement. Overall, up to 400,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) in other areas of the country are without access to health services. The already fragile Ukrainian health system is completely overstretched in the areas with high IDP density and health service provision is insufficient. Vulnerable groups, such as the Roma, children, pregnant and lactating women, the elderly and disabled, are at high risk with the health system’s limited capacities, according to the UN. “Many people have no access to health services, and in some areas hospital and clinical services have collapsed, while those who managed to get out now have no access to water, health, food,” said Dr. Nitzan. In the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, some 15 hospitals have been damaged in the fighting and so far 20 health facilities have closed. Up to 70 per cent of health care workers have fled while the crisis prevents patients from accessing much needed health care. It is estimated that 5,000 people in that region have been wounded. Dr. Nitzan also warned that major health risks could arise from insufficient access to emergency and primary health care including water‐borne and communicable diseases and mental health disorders. He said that the ongoing uncertainty and violence as well as loss of family members, friends and livelihoods continue to take a heavy toll on the population’s mental health. Meanwhile, care for people with non‐communicable diseases, tuberculosis and HIV has become very limited. It is estimated that TB patients are getting only one of the four drugs needed. WHO is responding to these challenges by procuring essential medicines, including emergency drugs, vaccines and equipment for the national health care system as well as expanding the scale of the early warning system for infectious disease outbreak prevention and control. read more

Clareo Managing Partner offers views on innovation from PDAC

first_imgPeter J. Bryant, Managing Partner of Clareo and Board Chair, Development Partner Institute, recently attended the PDAC in Toronto, and wrote an article about the necessity for innovation after meeting with more than 25 international mining ministers.Bryant attended PDAC 2017 to launch the transformative Development Partner Institute, of which he is the Board Chair, and speak about ‘The Innovation Imperative’ to the International Mining Ministers Summit, hosted by the World Economic Forum and PDAC at BMO’s Executive Center in Toronto.He says his message was simple and consistent: “The innovation imperative is the greatest it has ever been. The surge in prices should not be viewed as a panacea, but rather the stimulus to accelerate commitment, urgency and investment towards the necessary innovation agenda. It is an opportunity that should not be squandered.”The Mining Ministers Summit was attended by Ministers from more than 25 countries, such as Chile, Brazil, Mexico, Peru, Portugal, Colombia, Canada, Botswana, Mongolia, Kenya, Mali, Ecuador and many more.As one of only three speakers, Bryant centred his remarks “on how we can improve the social, environmental and economic outcomes for all stakeholders, particularly the surrounding communities, from the development of the non-renewable resources with which each and every country had been endowed. A new level of prosperity, sustainable beyond the life of a mine, can only be achieved through innovation. This innovation must deliver something that creates value, but must not be confused with invention.”He continues: “The innovation imperative is stronger than ever. The industry continues to face the same serious headwinds that conspire to undermine the value it delivers to all stakeholders, including:A continuously declining social license to operate, as societal demands rapidly outstrip the progress being made. There has been a dramatic decline in trust between communities, government and mining companies;Increasing environmental expectations for stewardship of the ecosystems from communities, indigenous peoples and other stakeholders;Poor economic performance. Just prior to this recent surge, when prices were trading at 2-5x the lows of 2000, the industry was struggling to provide the returns of capital and free cash flow that investors expected. The recent surge has not alleviated the persistent economic underperformance of the last 15 years, which has largely resulted from collapsed productivity and spiraling costs in development and operations.This is not a normal “boom and bust” cycle, and is not just a problem for the mining companies, but for governments, communities and suppliers as well.”Bryant said that the Ministers understood this and were universally focused on two key priorities: how do their governments deliver better outcomes to the communities in and around mining projects, and how do they drive innovation in their respective countries?He offered two perspectives for consideration:Build shared purpose through a new collaborative approach: The only way to deliver better outcomes for communities is to create an environment where all stakeholders come together in a mutually respectful way, in order to understand what each wants from mining development and arrive at a shared purpose. This requires a radically different mindset from all stakeholders. Following the same old approaches with some incremental changes and hoping for substantially different outcomes simply won’t work. The Development Partner Approach offers a set of guiding principles on how to achieve this.The government’s role is to create a ‘sandbox with the appropriate guardrails’, so that conversations will accommodate the differences of each development/project yet still align with the same accepted set of principles. The risk is that the more prescriptive that policy and regulations become, the more restrictive they are, perpetuating issues on the ground.“We had a robust conversation on how this can be achieved. A Minister of Mines from Latin America described his country’s new mandate that 60% of all revenue from mining projects (taxes and royalties) must be invested back into the local communities. There were mechanisms in place to make sure this happened, and that the funds were invested in necessary infrastructure that would underpin future prosperity. A Minister from Southern Africa noted that this approach must accommodate the artisanal miners in and around company operations. He remarked that in his country, there are two million artisanal miners that depend on mining for their economic well-being. Another Minister added that this still must overcome the challenge of his indigenous people’s view that mining was mistrusted and equaled destruction, rather than opportunity.”In many cases, this approach requires technology to enable new mining methods that can radically reduce the negative environmental and social impacts of current methods, lower production costs, and drive up productivity.Stimulate innovation and new business development to catalyse greater economic prosperity: “The second perspective I shared was how to stimulate innovation within countries to help develop new technology and businesses across all market segments. Stimulating innovation unleashes the potential of their entrepreneurs in the process, and leverages the wealth generated from mining to act as a catalyst for economic prosperity beyond the mine. This is especially important in order to overcome the long term and persistent under-investment in new technology by the industry. New methods and technologies are critical to address the declining economic performance and increasing demands around the environment.“The industry must also start supporting and stimulating new businesses that support other vital and strategic sectors for the region, such as agriculture, healthcare, and tourism. One Minister from a major Latin American country lamented how little mining had changed in the last thirty to fifty years, and questioned why there had been so little innovation. Yet another spoke of the increased fragility of ecosystems that demand new technology to minimise the negative impacts of mining.“The government must provide springboards in order to create an environment for entrepreneurism to thrive and avoid smothering the very baby it is trying to nurture. How can they do this?Make it easy to create a new businessImprove access to venture capital, encourage and catalyse the establishment of professionally managed Venture capital funds and avoid picking winners by making direct investments in new companiesCreate hubs and catalyse ecosystems around specific challenges, avoiding duplicationProvide the right infrastructure, particularly communications“Almost all stakeholders are incentivised and eager to make this happen. It demands an entirely new level of public and private sector collaboration that is based on trust and shared purpose. A new mindset is necessary – one that will challenge existing orthodoxies – because continuing to follow the same paths with incremental adjustments will simply no longer work. Governments will need to work collaboratively with mining companies, communities and other stakeholders to drive towards their shared purpose. Investing the wealth from mining projects in such a way so as to provide for prosperity beyond the life of the mine.”Bryant concludes: “It is only through embracing innovation, while providing the ‘sandboxes with guardrails’ and ‘springboards’, that we can truly deliver the improved social, environmental and economic outcomes for all stakeholders, especially the surrounding communities, that mining companies and governments seek.”last_img read more

Les Européens utilisaient déjà des épices pour cuisiner il y a 7

first_imgLes Européens utilisaient déjà des épices pour cuisiner il y a 7 000 ansUne équipe internationale d’archéologues vient de retrouver les plus anciennes traces de l’utilisation d’épices de l’Europe préhistorique.La quête d’épices a poussé les Européens à voyager vers les Amériques, l’Afrique et l’Asie. Mais l’utilisation de ces aromates pourrait être encore plus vieille qu’on ne pensait. Les plus anciennes traces écrites de cette utilisation en Europe remontent à 3.000 ans avant Jésus-Christ. Des chercheurs viennent maintenant de trouver des fossiles attestant que dès 5.000 avant JC, la cuisine européenne était déjà parfumée aux épices. Les archéologues de l’université de York, en association avec des scientifiques danois, allemands et espagnols publient leurs travaux dans la revue en ligne PLoS ONE. Ils y décrivent les traces de graines d’Alliaire officinale, ou herbe à ail, retrouvées dans des pots à nourriture provenant du Danemark et de l’Allemagne, et datant de la période Mésolithique-Néolithique, là où la transition chasseur-cueilleur vers l’agriculture s’est effectuée.Les fossiles, des phytolithes, sont des empreintes minérales que les tissus végétaux laissent en mourant. Jusqu’à présent, les archéologues recherchaient des traces d’amidon dans des résidus carbonés et non-carbonés. La recherche de phytolithes permet de déterminer la présence de composés plus sensibles, comme les feuilles ou les écorces, qui servent à produire des épices. De par leur nature minérale, les phytolithes résistent très bien à l’usure du temps.Cultiver aussi pour le goûtÀ lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Le Dr. Harvey Saul, de l’université de York, explique :”l’idée classique est que vers le début du Néolithique, on ne cultivait les plantes que pour leurs vertus nourricières et énergétiques, plutôt que pour le goût”.Mais “les graines d’herbe à ail ont une saveur très prononcée et peu de valeur nutritive”, ce qui suggère plutôt qu’elles étaient appréciées pour leur goût et non leur vertus. “Nous les avons trouvées dans des pots contenants des restes de viandes et de plantes, notre découverte est la première preuve directe de l’utilisation d’épices dans la cuisine préhistorique européenne”, conclut ainsi le chercheur.Le 28 août 2013 à 11:31 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Football commentator discusses helicopter accident at Leicester

first_imgBBC’s Match of the Day commentator Alistair Mann appeared on the show to discuss the horrific accident that occurred after Leicester’s Premier League clash against West Ham.Speaking to MOTD presenter, Gary Lineker, Mann said, as quoted by BBC:“Those of you who have been to Leicester over the last few years know it’s fairly commonplace for half an hour after the game, it goes up and takes him to wherever he wants to go.”“This was the situation again this evening. It’s a common situation but within barely seconds of it taking off and going above the stand, over the top of the ground, it appears to have reached some difficulties and has come down.”“The impression I get is beyond the car parks that are immediately around the vicinity of the stadium but fairly nearby, nonetheless.”Chelsea Player Ratings against Leicester City Taimoor Khan – August 19, 2019 Chelsea made a promising start to their second league game of the season but were unable to keep the same levels in the second…“It’s come down, apparently there was smoke initially, then a pop and it seems to have become engulfed in flames.”“Look, we don’t know who is on board at this stage and we don’t know for sure those who got on to the helicopter, but ordinarily it takes the family, we can’t confirm if the chairman was on, we can’t confirm if any of his family members were on, I’m led to believe it’s normally a two-person crew.”“I believe that was the case this evening but we really don’t know for sure who was on board. That appears to be what happened.”“Because there was a game on tonight, the emergency services were in the vicinity so there was a very quick reaction and lots of police and ambulances and so on very quickly on to the scene to control the situation.”“It is a very serious situation but we really don’t know the extent of it just at the moment.”last_img read more

Mauricio Pochettino gives update on Tottenhams stadium

first_imgTottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino insists the team won’t have to wait too long before moving into new stadium.Spurs are yet to announce a date for the opening of their new stadium but much of the interior of the site is approaching completion, with only minor issues left to deal with.The North London club are expected to make further announcements regarding progress on the 62,000 stadium early next month when they have more information on how the ongoing testing of the safety systems has gone.Pochettino was asked if it would be better for his team to remain at Wembley until next season in order to avoid any problem of readjustment.“That is plan B! It is not in our mind. No I am not worried that it [damages form] and when the stadium is ready we are going to move,” he said, according to Football.London.“Only if the chairman changes the idea. But my idea is to move as soon as possible. If we can move tomorrow then tomorrow it is. But I know that it is difficult tomorrow.”Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“I think we will know better in January or the end of the year in December. I hope if it is not January then it is February. I think it is so close.”“Yesterday I was there and it is so close. The bowl is ready and there are a few things that need to be sorted and hope that the people who need to sign the permission will be nice and [sign] as soon as possible.”“Yesterday afternoon we were there, checking the facilities, the changing rooms and everything, We are so excited, we cannot wait to move there.”“We understand that it is a fantastic project for the future of the club that will be forever. To wait maybe one or two months more, we need to have patience.”“We are so disappointed because we expect to play in 2018 and it should be ready for play before the end of the year but that is not going to be possible and we need to wish and hope that in January or February we can move there and it will be a fantastic moment for everyone, the supporters, the players.

This Rusty Old Sword Hidden In An Attic Was An Ancient Old

first_img Imagine finding a sword in an attic that’s all rusted up and terrible-looking. You have no idea where it’s from, or why you even have it. It’s just chilling in an attic. Maybe your attic. You clean it up and check it out and get it appraised, and guess what? It turns out to be one of the oldest swords in all of Japan. Talk about a come-up. Macklemore ain’t got nothin’ on this treasure, which actually happened to be from the 12th century.The sword was originally made in the Heian Period of samurai and was a family heirloom for the owner, and now it’s made its way into a special museum where it’ll be housed for safekeeping. It’s 82.4 centimeters in length, curved slightly, and is called a “kohoki” in Japanese. It was found as part of 12 different swords that were stored in an attic at the Kasuga Taisha shrine in Japan and was in fact originally found back in 1939.When it was pulled from storage, it was riddled with rust, and then sharpened to a finer point. It’s identified as a kohoki sword thanks to its curved shape and other distinct features. Kohoki swords are some of the oldest Japanese swords around, and it’s possible that a swordsmith known as Yasustune could have forged the blade, as it seems to share several characteristics with those he had previously created himself.The sword can be seen, if you’re in the area, at Kasugataisha Museum at the shrine site starting January 30 and running through March 26, but it’s an important, priceless treasure that will be kept and watched over for years to come. And imagine the humble beginnings it came from, to have been stuffed in some random attic! Just goes to show you that you can’t judge a book by its cover.

Sony patents offline used game detection using RF tags

first_imgFor the most part, publishers, game developers, and console manufacturers are not fans of used games. As far as they are concerned they limit the sales of new games and put the resale profit in the pockets of retailers alone. So it’s not surprising to see downloadable games embraced and experiments such as EA’s Project $10 and the PSPgo attempted. But Sony looks to be taking things a step further and preparing to limit or even block used games completely in the future.A new patent has been filed by Sony that details a way of detecting and limiting the use of a used game using an RF tag. Such a system would allow a console to detect a used game and take appropriate action, be that stopping its use or possibly demanding a payment be made before it is allowed to play. Importantly, using an RF tag means this check could be done without an Internet connection being required.The system works with a so-called use permission tag that would be attached to the game media. When a new game is first inserted into a console a unique media ID along with the console’s ID and user account ID is recorded (contactless) on the user permission tag. If that same game is then used in another console, the IDs are detected and appropriate action can be taken by the console as the game is clearly not brand new.It seems unlikely Sony would block the use of a used game completely. Instead, anyone buying a used game will probably be expected to pay Sony a fee to unlock it–a lot like how Project $10 works if you want multiplayer enabled (Online Pass). Even so, this permissions system is sure to put a major dent in the used game market if and when Sony decides to introduce it. If they do, it will most likely be a feature of the PS4.FPO, via NeoGAF Image credit Maschinejungelast_img read more

Authorities recover black box in Germanwings crash that left 150 dead in

Germanwings co-pilot treated in past for suicidal tendencies Lufthansa CEO tours crash area after disclosure of pilot’s depression Co-pilot deliberately crashed Germanwings plane: prosecutor SEYNE,France – A plane operated by the budget carrier of Germany’s Lufthansa crashed in a remote area of the French Alps on Tuesday, killing all 150 on board in France’s worst aviation disaster in decades.Budget airline  Germanwings said the Airbus A320 plunged into an inaccessible mountain area in southeastern France.With the cause of the accident a complete mystery, authorities recovered a black box from the crash site, where rescue efforts were being hampered by the mountainous terrain.Local MP Christophe Castaner, who flew over the crash site, said on Twitter: “Horrendous images in this mountain scenery.”“Nothing is left but debris and bodies. Flying over the crash site with the interior minister — a horror — the plane is totally destroyed.”Video images from a government helicopter flying near the area showed a desolate snow-flecked moonscape, with steep ravines covered in scree.Germanwings said the Airbus plunged for eight minutes but French aviation officials said the plane had made no distress call before crashing near the ski resort of Barcelonnette.“A black box was found and will be delivered to investigators,” Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said.Weather did not appear to be a factor in the crash, with conditions “calm” at the time.“There was no cloud at the plane’s cruising altitude”, winds were “light to moderate” and there was no turbulence that could have contributed to the crash, French weather officials said.Prime Minister Manuel Valls said there were no survivors, adding that the authorities “can’t rule out any theory” on the cause of the disaster.The plane, carrying 144 mainly Spanish and German passengers — including two babies — and six crew, was travelling from Barcelona to the western German city of Duesseldorf when it came down.German authorities said 16 German teenagers on a school trip were on board the doomed plane, as tearful relatives rushed to the airports in the two cities anxiously seeking information about their loved ones.French President Francois Hollande said he would meet his German and Spanish counterparts at the crash site on Wednesday. Family members of passengers stand at Barcelona’s El Prat airport on March 24, 2015 after a Germanwings airliner crashed near a ski resort in the French Alps. Lluis Gene/AFP‘It is a tragedy’It was the first fatal accident in the history of Germanwings, and the deadliest on the French mainland since 1974 when a Turkish Airlines crashed, killing 346 people.“It is a tragedy, a new airline tragedy. We will determine what caused the crash,” French President Francois Hollande said.Hollande said the dead included Germans, Spaniards and “probably” Turks, while Belgium said at least one of its nationals was on board.Germanwings said 67 Germans were believed to have been on board while Spain said 45 people with Spanish sounding names were on the flight.Chancellor Angela Merkel said she was “shocked” by news of the accident and would travel to the crash site, while Spanish King Felipe VI cut short his state visit to France after news of the tragedy.Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said he would visit the scene on Wednesday.A crisis cell has been set up in the area between Barcelonnette and Digne-les-Bains along with an emergency flight control centre to coordinate the operation to the crash site.Authorities commandeered a large meadow with dozens of helicopters taking off to head to the crash site.Valls said one helicopter had been able to touch down at the site of the accident but locals described the difficult terrain that threatened to hamper rescue efforts.“Ground access is horrible, I know the Estrop massif, it’s a very high mountainous area, very steep and it’s terrible to get there except from the air during winter,” local resident Francoise Pie said.A witness who was skiing near the crash site told French television he “heard an enormous noise” around the time of the disaster.A French police helicopter dispatched to the site of the crash reported spotting debris in a mountain range known as “Les Trois Eveches,” which lies at an altitude of 1,400 meters (4,600 feet).And local MP Christophe Castaner, who flew over the crash site, said on Twitter: “Horrendous images in this mountain scenery.”“Nothing is left but debris and bodies.

It was air traffic control that decided to declare the plane was in distress because there was no contact with the crew of the plane,” the source said.In 1981, a plane crashed on the French island of Corsica with 180 people on board.In July 2000, an Air France Concorde crashed shortly after take-off from Paris’s Charles de Gaulle airport en route for New York, leaving 113 people, leaving mainly Germans dead and eventually leading to the supersonic airliner being taken out of service.The world’s worst air disasters remain the March 27, 1977, collision of two Boeing 747s on the runway at Tenerife in the Canary Islands, killing 583 people, and the August 12, 1985 crash into a mountainside of a Boeing 747 belonging to Japan Airlines, killing 520 people.
