Security Council demands end to Mali violence urges parties to reach peace

The Government of Mali and the signatory and adherent armed groups of the Ouagadougou Preliminary Agreement must resume without delay the inter-Malian negotiation process in Algiers, the 15-member body urged in a Presidential Statement approved this morning.“The parties have a responsibility to the Malian people and the international community to reach a durable peace agreement,” the Security Council stressed, calling on all actors who have influence on the Malian leaders to urge them “to negotiate seriously and in good faith.” “The Security Council urges the parties to seize the historic opportunity offered by the inter-Malian negotiation process in Algiers, in which all neighbouring countries and relevant regional and international partners are involved, to support lasting peace in Mali,” the Council said. In the meantime, those involved in the Malian conflict must “refrain from any action, whether direct or conducted through proxies, that jeopardizes prospects for peace,” the Council stressed, emphasizing that it would consider appropriate measures, including targeted sanctions, against those who resume hostilities and violate the ceasefire. Underscoring that only a comprehensive peace agreement can bring lasting security to Mali, the Council deplored the continued violence in the north of the country and demanded all parties respect the ceasefire agreed to on 23 May 2014, as well as the declaration of the Cessation of Hostilities signed in Algiers on 24 July 2014. The Security Council emphasized that the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Mali, Mongi Hamdi, and the UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission (MINUSMA) should play a leading role, in conjunction with the other members of the international mediation team, to oversee implementation of a peace deal, of which primary responsibility rests with the Malian parties. The Council acknowledged the sacrifices of MINUSMA’s troops and condemned all attacks against its peacekeepers. Such attacks may constitute war crimes under international law, the Council noted, calling on MINUSMA to implement its mandate using all necessary means within its capabilities, including preventing the return of armed factions, protecting civilians, and responding to attacks against its personnel.“The Security Council welcomes the decision of the Secretary-General to launch an independent inquiry to determine the facts surrounding the tragic incidents that took place on 27 January 2015 during a violent demonstration in front of the MINUSMA base in Gao, in the North of Mali, and the reported death of at least 3 protesters,” the statement said.Drawing on lessons from the previous peace agreements, which did not achieve a durable peace in Mali, the Council urged Malian parties – and called on the members of the international mediation team – in Algiers to devise “concrete oversight mechanisms that will ensure the full, faithful and immediate implementation of a future comprehensive and inclusive peace agreement.”In addition, the provisions relating to the participation of women, sexual violence and child protection must be taken into account during the on-going negotiations and any possible outcome. The Government in Mali has been seeking to restore stability and rebuild following a series of setbacks since early 2012, including a military coup d’état, renewed fighting between Government forces and Tuareg rebels, and the seizure of its northern territory by radical Islamists. Throughout much of this time, Mali’s north has remained restive and, in recent months, MINUSMA and its “blue helmets” have come under repeated violent attack. read more

Over 90000 homes may have dangerous levels of radon gas just 8

first_imgA map showing what areas could have higher-than-normal levels of the gas. Source: RPII.ieClick here to view a larger version.TENS OF THOUSANDS of homes across the country could be at risk of cancer-causing radon gas, but just a fraction have been checked according to Ireland’s radioactivity watchdog.Many homes can be easily checked for the gas.Radon is a common radioactive gas, making up a portion of natural background radiation nationwide, produced by the decay of several forms of rock, such as limestone and granite.In higher concentrations in certain areas it can pose a danger to health, and is linked to 250 cases of lung cancer each year.The Radiological Protection Institute of Ireland (RPII) has released figures showing that 181 homes have been identified as containing “high levels” of the gas in past eight month.Four homes – two in Ballindooley and Castlegar, Co. Galway, one in the Campile area of Co. Wexford and one in Ballisodare, Co. Sligo – had levels equivalent to 15 chest X-rays a day.Roughly 8,000 other homes identified as high-risk have been checked.However, the risk posed by the gas is still unknown for the 83,000 homes in danger areas. File photo of one style of radon test kit. Source: WikimediaHomeowners can purchase radon detectors, or contact the RPII to request a house check.“Of concern to us is that only 1 in 4 homeowners, having tested and found a high reading, have taken action to reduce the high level of radon present,” chief executive Dr Ann McGarry said.That means three quarters of homeowners are living with the knowledge that they are putting their family at risk when the problem can easily be fixed.Remedial work when high levels of radon are found include the installation of fan-assisted sump, costing in the region of €850.More information on how to test your home is available on RPII.ieRead: Selling your home?

Watch YouTuber Sends Big Mac Burger Into Space Eats It

first_imgStay on target PewDiePie Pulls $50,000 Pledge to Anti-Hate Group After Fan BacklashYouTube Fined $170M For Alleged Child Privacy Law Violation How does a burger taste after it’s been in space? One man decided to find out by launching a McDonald’s Big Mac “100,00 feet, 24 miles high” into space, where temperatures drop to minus 50 degrees Celsius.UK YouTuber Tom Stanniland, known as Killem on the video-sharing platform, told his more than 2 million followers that he set out to not only send the “first McDonald’s [burger] into space, but to also actually eat one” that has breached the Earth’s atmosphere.“I’ve seen people send stuff to space but no one ever sent a burger to space, so I wanted to be the first to give it a go! It took a couple of weeks of preparation, to make sure we had everything exactly how it needed to be,” Stanniland told Today.com.To achieve his goal, Stanniland used a weather balloon, four canisters of helium, a GoPro camera, the Big Mac burger, and glue to fasten the burger into a polystyrene box. One part of the burger was left unglued so he can eat it upon its return.“There’s so many things that can go wrong!… I’ve done maths for the first time in years,” Stanniland said in the 20-minute video. He said the GoPro could freeze or overheat, the string could snap, the balloon could pop, or the tracker could stop working.We always knew the Big Mac was out of this world… “The mystery of the ‘spaceburger’ with the camera attached”https://t.co/sljIMPzM3r— McDonald’s UK (@McDonaldsUK) March 29, 2019After one failed attempt, the YouTuber was able to launch the balloon. As he waited for its return, there were fears that the tracker was lost, but the Big Mac did eventually land back on Earth — actually, in a football field.When Stanniland finally took a bite of the Big Mac, he found it dry, powdery, and frozen. “I had to chew for about two minutes and force it down,” he told Today.com. “I wouldn’t recommend it to anybody.”In response to Stanniland’s space mission, McDonald’s UK tweeted: “We always knew the Big Mac was out of this world.”More on Geek.com:McDonald’s Drive Thru Gets AI UpgradeDriver Fights Ticket for Using Cellphone With ‘Hash Brown Defense’This Machine Can Cook and Assemble 100 Burgers an Hourlast_img read more

Ministry of Foreign Affairs on New York Times correction of the Immigration

Today the New York Times admitted its error by printing the following in its 3rd February edition:Because of an editing error, a picture caption on Saturday for an article about a new immigration policy in the Bahamas that critics say unfairly targets Haitians misstated the effects of the policy on the two boys shown, born in the Bahamas but of Haitian descent. The boys have always been considered Haitian; that is not among the policy changes. (The new policy requires everyone to hold a passport, and as of next fall will also require all schoolchildren who are not citizens to have a student residency permit.)The Minister of Foreign Affairs Fred Mitchell speaking in Barbados tonight to Bahamian students welcomed the correction he said that he did not think that iy went far enough but he felt that the New York Times having conceded and admitted the error, the whole story by the New York Times collapses.

So it only makes sense that, following the C-Class’ midcycle refresh for 2019, the GLC is getting a similar suite of updates as we head into the 2020 model year.Debuting at the Geneva Motor Show next week, the 2020 GLC-Class will continue to be offered in GLC300 guise in the US, with a choice of rear- or all-wheel drive. (AMG variants will no doubt be on the docket, and we expect to see those soon.) You’ll be able to spot the 2020 GLC300, thanks to its restyled headlights and taillights, in addition to new exterior colors and wheel options. Like the C300, the GLC300 is powered by an updated, 2.0-liter, turbocharged I4 engine that produces 255 horsepower — up 14 from last year — and 273 pound-feet of torque. Mercedes’ smooth-operating nine-speed automatic transmission handles shifting duties.Where the GLC differentiates itself from the C-Class is in the infotainment tech department. The 2020 GLC300 gets Mercedes’ new MBUX software, housed on a 10.2-inch touchscreen atop the center stack. A 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster sits to the left, controllable via thumb pads on the steering wheel. This is the same version of MBUX we’ve seen in other new Mercedes products, with great, high-res displays, and voice control.Enlarge ImageMercedes’ new MBUX infotainment system is housed on a 10.2-inch touchscreen atop the center stack.

Pricing is still unavailable, but the 2019 GLC300 starts at $40,700, so expect the 2020 model to come in a little bit higher than that. 0last_img read more

Newtok to Congress thank you for saving our village

first_imgExcited Newtok children sprint down temporary roads in Mertarvik, the site where the village hopes to relocate. (Photo by Christine Trudeau/KYUK)On the day President Trump signed a massive spending bill in Washington, D.C., Paul Charles and George Carl of Newtok sat down in a hotel conference room in midtown Anchorage to take stock of an event they still couldn’t quite believe was real.Listen nowThe budget bill included $1.3 trillion in spending and was more than 2,200 pages long. But for Newtok, there’s just one page that matters.That’s page 458. It doubles funding for the federal Denali Commission, giving the agency an extra $15 million. The commission said last week it plans to spend that money to help Newtok relocate, accomplishing a goal that’s been out of reach for more than two decades.Carl, Newtok’s village council vice president, said the decision is life-changing.“It’s like saving our people in that small village,” Carl said. “I’d like to thank who made this possible…Thank you very, very much.”Newtok Village Council vice president George Carl at home in November 2017. Behind him is a photo of himself, village council president Paul Charles and relocation coordinator Romy Cadiente with Alaska Senator Dan Sullivan. (Photo by Rachel Waldholz / Alaska’s Energy Desk)Newtok is rapidly losing land to a combination of erosion and thawing permafrost and residents expect they’ll have to abandon their homes within a matter of years. The village first decided to move in 1994. It acquired a new site several miles away in a land trade with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 2003. Ever since, the village has been trying to piece together enough funding to move.The $15 million in this year’s spending bill is just a fraction of what Newtok needs. The cost of moving the entire village is estimated at well over $100 million. But village council president Paul Charles said this is the crucial seed money that will make everything else possible.“It’s not that the whole village is going to relocate all at one time, but $15 million is a lot of money to build [homes],” Charles said.The relocation plan is unconventional: The village plans to retrofit old military barracks from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Anchorage and barge them out to the new site. Engineers estimate that will be cheaper than building new houses from scratch, helping to avoid some of rural Alaska’s high construction costs.  If all goes well, the new funding plus existing grants could go toward the construction of 28 houses at the new site, said village relocation coordinator Romy Cadiente. His goal is to have people living there full-time by the fall of 2019.At that point, Cadiente said the new site, Mertarvik, would be a permanent community. He hopes it would have enough residents to be eligible for traditional infrastructure funding, including money for a school, an airport and water and sewer systems.“We hope to attract additional agencies with the message, ‘This is not a conceptual design anymore,’” Cadiente said. “‘This is a real, active project. Can you please help us?’”Charles, Carl and Cadiente said the funding was the result of work by many people, from the Alaska congressional delegation and the Denali Commission to the village council’s relentless attorney, Mike Walleri, and countless federal and state officials.But Cadiente pointed out that the $15 million is a one-time funding stream. Several other Alaska villages are considering relocation, and even more need help dealing with erosion if they’re going to stay in place.They can’t all rely on a special act of Congress. Cadiente said ultimately, the country needs to find a different way to fund climate-related issues like coastal erosion.As for Paul Charles, he had a message for other villages facing a similar situation:“Don’t quit what you are working for,” Charles said, speaking in Yup’ik. “To accomplish what we are striving for, we go through difficulties, we keep working through the problems. We accomplish our goal when we keep working toward it.”Julia Jimmey at KYUK in Bethel contributed translations from Yup’ik to English for this report.last_img read more

That’s the message of a special comic book designed to ease children’s fears before they undergo a scan, which requires them to lay still in a narrow, loud machine in order for it to produce clear images. The new Marvel Custom Solutions comic book is included in an “MRI Heroes Kit” developed by Siemens Healthcare and Marvel Custom Solutions in collaboration with Weill Cornell Imaging at NewYork-Presbyterian and Weill Cornell Medical College. The kit is designed to empower young patients by educating them about the procedure in a gentle and compelling way.MRIs are capable of delivering high-quality scans of nearly every region in the body without utilizing potentially harmful ionizing radiation. But for all their benefits, MRI scans can create anxiety for children. The loud, clanging noise of the machines and the long duration of the scan can rattle patients (especially children) to the point where they require sedation. In rare circumstances, sedation can cause medical complications for patients, including allergic and adverse reactions. With a better understanding of the MRI procedure, children hopefully will be more likely to remain still for the lengthy imaging procedure.The MRI Heroes Kit – which includes 100 copies of the educational comic book, 100 hero-themed capes, 100 Captain America and Iron Man plush toys, an educational DVD and a mini-model¹ of a Siemens MRI scanner – is designed to help diffuse pediatric patients’ anxiety. In the comic book, Captain America’s nagging shoulder pain following a heated battle prompts Iron Man to urge his reluctant partner to obtain an MRI scan. The educational video walks patients through the process of an MRI exam by sharing the experiences of a fictional 10-year-old girl who recently received a scan. Children can play with the mini-model of a Siemens MRI scanner in the waiting room and read the comic book. The plush toy, which patients can hold during the exam, brings the comic book to life. And after the scan, patients can be awarded a hero cape as a reward for their valor. Weill Cornell Imaging at NewYork-Presbyterian will be the first facility to use the kit, which will be made available to Siemens customers who purchase its MRI systems.“MRI remains one of the most powerful imaging tools we as clinicians have, but it can be particularly challenging to perform scans on children, who can be scared and have deep anxiety about the procedure,” said Robert J. Min, M.D., chairman of radiology at Weill Cornell Medical College, radiologist-in-chief at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, and president of Weill Cornell Imaging at NewYork-Presbyterian. “The MRI Heroes Kit provides children and their parents with the tools and information they need to be more comfortable with an MRI exam. By helping them understand what an MRI is, I am convinced we can make a difference.”¹ Works in Progress. The product is under development and is not commercially available. MR scanning has not been established as safe for imaging fetuses and infants under two years of age.

CFPB Releases Nearly 8000 Consumer Complaint Narratives about Financial Companies

first_imgCFPB Releases Nearly 8,000 Consumer Complaint Narratives about Financial Companies Share in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News, Technology June 25, 2015 584 Views center_img Consumer Complaint Database Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Consumer Protection Act Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Five Star Institute 2015-06-25 Staff Writer For the first time, over 7,700 consumer complaints about problems they are facing with financial companies concerning mortgages, bank accounts, credit cards, and debt collection, among others, were released today by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) on their Consumer Complaint Database, according to a press release. The Bureau is also requesting input on how to engage the public in this influx of information so that consumers can understand the information and make comparisons.“The Bureau’s work improves as we hear directly from consumers,” said Richard Cordray. CFPB director “Every complaint tells us what people are facing in the financial marketplace. Publishing these consumer stories today is a historic milestone that we believe will lead to better outcomes for everyone.”The CFPB’s Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act highlights consumer complaints as an important part of their work, according to the release. As soon as the CFPB was established in July 2011, they began accepting complaints from consumers, and in June 2012, the CFPB launched the Consumer Complaint Database.The database includes basic, anonymous, individual-level information about the complaints received, including the date of submission, the consumer’s zip code, the relevant company, the product type, the issue the consumer is complaining about, and how the company handled the complaint, the Bureau says.In March 2015, the Bureau finalized a policy that would allow consumers to public share their narratives when submitting claims to the Bureau. Since this feature was launched, over half of consumers’ complaints were shared publicly.  Beginning today, consumer narratives will be added to the complaint database on a daily basis, without revealing personal information.The Bureau reported that as of June 1, 2015, it has handled more than 627,000 complaints. Mortgages and debt collection are the most popular topics mentioned in the database. The Bureau noted that the complaint process has helped consumers obtain hundreds of thousands of responses from companies and millions of dollars in monetary relief.The narratives provided by consumers give firsthand accounts of their experience, the CFPB said. These narratives help consumers make good decisions and also push companies toward improving the quality of their products and services.The CFPB Consumer Complaint Database is designed to allow users to:Search for specific product names or features.Highlight specific company practices and problems.Break down information by state.In April, the Five Star Institute (FSI) and Black Knight Financial Services (BKFS) released a report titled “Analysis and Study of CFPB Consumer Complaint Data Related to Mortgage Servicing Activities,” that address the concern that the complaints do not provide a full picture of the mortgage servicing industry.The FSI and BKFS report aimed to provide context and insight to complaints received by the CFPB by comparing the Bureau’s two predominant mortgage complaint categories, servicing and default, with loan trends. The report also included publicly available data from both the CFPB and mortgage servicers, as reported from the CFPB database.According to the report, mortgage-related complaints received by the CFPB are on the decline after an initial ramp-up period. Delinquent loans and foreclosures have also decreased. The report seeks to address of the question of whether these two stats are falling at the same rate and if there is a correlation between the two.”The information contained in this report plays an important role in measuring the scope of volume related to CFPB inquiries made, in juxtaposition to the total number of mortgage holders in the U.S. market,” said Ed Delgado, Five Star president and CEO.  “Through the data lens, we can clearly examine operational efficiency and defect while measuring progress in providing quality service to homeowners.”Click here to view the CFPB’s Consumer Complaint Narrative Policy.Click here to view the CFPB’s Request for Information.last_img read more

Which Mortgage Products Should Lenders be Marketing

first_img in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News, Origination Which Mortgage Products Should Lenders be Marketing? 15-Year Mortgage 30-Year Mortgage Federal Reserve Trulia 2015-12-16 Staff Writer Sharecenter_img Now that the Federal Reserve has raised the federal funds target rate, which will impact interest rates, prospective homebuyers are probably weighing their mortgage financing options.Well, a Trulia report may help make the decision a bit easier by outlining the advantages and disadvantages of both 15-year mortgages and 30-year mortgages.In the largest U.S. metros, with a median household income, a 30-year mortgage allows buyers to get more bang for their buck by purchasing 46 percent more house.On the other hand, with a 15-year mortgage provides homeowners with three times more equity in a just a short five years, this is especially true in areas with rapidly rising prices.”Home equity can come from three sources: down payment, principal reduction, and home value appreciation. This means that in markets with slow appreciation, a larger share of equity will come from homeowners paying down the loan balance when compared to home value appreciation. In such markets, 15-year loans offer a relatively faster route to building equity.”Meanwhile, in areas with slow-growing or flat prices, buyer will benefit more from the 30-year mortgage option.Trulia says that 30-year mortgages offer buyers low monthly payments, higher borrowing power, and better tax benefits.Payment on a 30-year mortgage average about $320, or 27 percent less than a 15-year mortgage, the report shows. Borrowing power on the 30-year mortgage total $244,000 on average and only $167,000 on a 15-year mortgage. In addition, buyers that go the 30-year route can write off almost $68,000 in their taxes compared to the 15-year.The 15-year mortgage option offers buyers faster growing equity, lower interest rates, and a shorter loan term, the report says.Although the payment is much higher for a 15-year loan, more of this payment goes toward paying the loan principal, Trulia found. The interest rate for the 15-year mortgage is 3.36 percent, compared to 4.12 percent for the 30-year. In addition, over the life of the loan, 15-year mortgages spend under $40,000 in interest, while 30-year mortgages spend over $107,000 in interest.”[The] 15-year mortgages are a great option for those wanting to build equity, regardless of how expensive or how fast growing a market is,” Trulia explained. “However, in places with historically low appreciation, 15-year mortgages are a much better deal for building equity because it’s about the only way to do so though paying of the loan balance.””On the other hand, in areas with historically high price appreciation that also happen to be expensive, households need to consider the tradeoffs between the borrowing power of 30-year mortgages, expected equity from home price appreciation, and whether or not they will use equity from their existing home as a down payment on their next one,” Trulia concluded.Click here to view the full report.
