UN expert launches survey to identify best practices to protect human rights

“In countless countries, across every region of the world, defenders are targeted, threatened, arbitrarily detained, tortured or killed,” said Michel Forst, the UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders, in a press release.He highlighted that violations are perpetrated by States as well as non-State actors, such as religious and armed groups or transnational companies. “It is important to expose the abhorrent violations against defenders, but it is also important to showcase good practices that support and protect activists,” the independent expert told the Dublin Platform for Human Rights Defenders. “The aim of the survey is to demonstrate to sceptical governments that there are encouraging and supportive ways they can defend activists better,” said Mr. Forst, who has heard the testimonies of hundreds of defenders.According to the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), the survey will be used to generate a discussion at the UN Human Rights Council in March 2016 on concrete actions needed to disseminate good practices, which are in place in some countries and could be duplicated in others.Independent experts or special rapporteurs are appointed by the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council to examine and report back, in an unpaid capacity, on specific human rights themes. read more

UN womens commission opens annual session at pivotal moment for gender equality

UN Photo/Loey FelipeMiroslav Lajčák, President of the seventy-second session of the General Assembly, addresses the opening meeting of the sixty-second session of the Commission on the Status of Women.UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka highlighted the importance of this year’s focus on rurual women.“It speaks to our commitment to fight some of the biggest challenges of our time: poverty, inequality, intersectionality and an end to violence and discrimination against women and girls, no matter where they live, or how they live, so that we ‘leave no one behind,’” she stated.Calling it “a tipping point moment,” the UN Women chief urged the forum to seize the opportunity to secure and accelerate progress, build consensus and share best practices to serve “the poorest of the poor.”“It has never been so urgent to hold leaders accountable for their promises for accelerating progress” on the SDGs, she said. An unprecedented hunger for change in women’s lives was being seen around the world, as well as a growing recognition that when women banded together, “they can make demands that bite.”“Women are fighting to take steps that change their lives, and they are refusing to accept the practices that have normalized gender inequality, sexual misconduct, exclusion and discrimination across all walks of life,” she argued.She urged everyone to unite around the common cause, as set out in the principles of equality in the UN Charter, “to make this a moment of real acceleration, change and accountability.” UN Photo/Loey FelipeSecretary-General António Guterres addresses the opening meeting of the sixty-second session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW).Calling it “the greatest human rights challenge of our time,” he said “progress for women and girls means changing the unequal power dynamics that underpin discrimination and violence.”“Discrimination against women damages communities, organizations, companies, economies and societies,” he continued. “That is why all men should support women’s rights and gender equality. And that is why I consider myself a proud feminist.”The President of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), Marie Chatardova pointed to the Commission, as a critical instrument to strengthen the global normative framework for women’s empowerment and the promotion of gender equality.The body is also as a key driver of ECOSOC’s work, with the Commission’s outcomes as bolstering the 2030 Agenda’s implementation and that of its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which seek to end poverty and ensure prosperity for all on a healthy planet. Noting that gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls is a theme that cuts across all the Goals, Ms. Chatardova said the Commission’s focus on rural women and girls was both timely and well-aligned with the 2030 Agenda. According to the ECOSOC President, inclusion is a key element in all efforts.Noting that the Commission has long provided a roadmap for the UN’s work in women’s empowerment and gender equality, she announced a special Council session in May to build sustainable, inclusive and resilient societies. UN Photo/Loey FelipeMarie Chatardová, President of the Economic and Social Council for 2018, addresses the sixty-second session of the Commission on the Status of Women.Gender perspective is criticalFor his part, the President of the UN General Assembly, Miroslav Lajčák, noted that past challenges were approached without a gender perspective, which “has had a particularly damaging effect on rural women.”Mr. Lajčák underscored that this needs to stop, and that women must be taken into account in all actions, from access to water to closing pay gaps. Drawing attention to rural women as a major source of innovation, he explained that their empowerment would benefit everyone.“These kinds of women do not need our help, in finding solutions,” he stated. “What they need is our support, in turning their ideas into reality.”Calling gender equality “an urgent priority,” Mr. Lajčák he encouraged the Commission to carry on with its important work “until every woman, sitting in this room today has the same rights, and the same opportunities, as the man sitting beside her.’“Thank you for continuing your calls. Let’s make them stronger than ever,” he concluded. “Across the world, women are telling their stories and provoking important and necessary conversations – in villages and cities; in boardrooms and bedrooms; in the streets and in the corridors of power,” said Secretary-General António Guterres, opening the 62nd session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW62).“From ‘MeToo’ to ‘Time’s Up’ and ‘The Time is Now’ […] women and girls are calling out abusive behaviour and discriminatory attitudes,” he added.Under the Commission’s theme ‘Challenges and opportunities in achieving gender equality and the empowerment of rural women and girls,’ the UN chief observed that although a marginalized group, they were often the backbone of their families and communities, managing land and resources.Mr. Guterres said that supporting these women is essential to fulfilling our global pledge to eradicate poverty and to create a safer, more sustainable world on a healthy planet – 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.Mr. Guterres painted a picture of a male-dominated world with a male-dominated culture in which centuries of patriarchy and discrimination have left a damaging legacy. UN Photo/Loey FelipePhumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Executive Director of the UN Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women), addresses the opening meeting of the sixty-second session of the Commission on the Status of Women.The chair, Geraldine Byrne Nason, said the current session is a key moment on the path to ending discrimination against women and girls once and for all. Indeed, “time is up” on women taking second place around the world, she said, challenging the Commission to do more and do better.CSW functions under ECOSOC, acting as the UN organ promoting gender equality and the empowerment of women.

Hulk Hogan addresses possibility of WWE return Things are moving in that

first_img Pinterest Facebook WhatsApp Ric Flair signs deal with Adidas, Says “We’re fixin’ to make Nike the second brand” Chris Van Vliet passed along the following.I had the honor of chatting with both Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair at the “Legends Of The Ring” event at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, FL last night. It was great to see them both in good spirits!From the sounds of it, Hulk Hogan is getting ready to return to the WWE sooner rather than later. I also asked Ric Flair what he thinks about the rumors of Charlotte Flair facing Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 35, whether either of them would want to wrestle again and why they were never opponents at WrestleMania.Here are some highlights.Hulk Hogan on returning to WWE:“Things are moving in that direction quite quickly. It’s all about execution and timing and the right place and the right time but things are good.”Ric Flair on Charlotte Flair facing Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 35:“In my humble opinion, if Rousey wants to elevate her status in the company she needs to go through The Queen and The Queen ain’t afraid of her, I got news for ya. I just saw her deadlift 315 lbs and she can bench 205 lbs for 6 reps. She is gifted beyond belief. I’m not involved obviously in any of the thinking but if they’re ever going to put the women where they belong, this is the year because I think Ronda has only signed a one-year deal and then she wants to get out of there. She wants to have kids and all that. She just needs to be be prepared to lose. Not if sure if Ronda likes that.”Why Hogan and Flair never faced each other at WrestleMania:Hulk Hogan: “We don’t know. We were on fire. We did some house shows in Chicago, Milwaukee, three or four shows in a row we set all kinds of records all over and we were pushing real hard towards that WrestleMania time and for me I have a personal opinion, the chemistry was so powerful between Ric and I, I hate to say anything bad about any of the other wrestlers, I hate to say anything bad about the company but with Ric and I heading into WrestleMania it kind of took over everything. If we would have wrestled at WrestleMania, we would have taken so much of the focus because there would have been the rematch and the cage match, the title would have dropped and hopefully I would have won it back and back and forth. I think that Vince knew that this was such a powerful turbulence between the two of us he could conquer and divide and make it work even better and pretty much that’s what he did. He sent me off in one direction and him in another and we drew money in both directions.” Google+center_img Cricket Wireless to host Live Twitter Q and A with Ric and Charlotte Flair September 17 Twitter Adam Martin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WWE RAW Results – 9/9/19 (Steve Austin moderates, KOTR Semifinal, Women’s Tag Match) last_img read more

EXCLUSIVE 91 offer life assurance benefits

first_imgEXCLUSIVE: Approximately nine in 10 (91%) employer respondents provide life assurance or death in service, according to research by Employee Benefits and Staffcare.The Employee Benefits/Staffcare Benefits research 2017, which surveyed 271 employer respondents in February-March 2017, also found that the majority of respondents that offer life assurance or death in service do so as a core benefit for all staff (86%).This was also the main method by which respondents offered these benefits in 2016 (87%), although the overall proportion of respondents that include death in service and life assurance in their benefits offering in some way has risen by seven percentage points over the last year.Life assurance has consistently been one of the top core benefits offered by respondents since the inaugural Benefits research in 2004, topping the list that year as well as in 2007, 2010, 2011 and 2013.The proportion of respondents offering this benefit has also risen over time. For example, in 2007, 62% offered life assurance as core to all staff and 17% to some staff. By 2013, this had risen so that 76% of all respondents organisations’ included life assurance within their core benefits offering for all employees, and 15% did so for some staff.This year, the proportion of respondents that offer personal insurances remains broadly in line with 2016, the way in which these benefits are being offered has changed.Over a third (34%) of respondents’ organisations offer travel insurance as an employee benefit. The proportion of respondents offering travel insurance that include it within their voluntary benefits programme has also increased, rising from 22% in 2016 and 37% in 2017. When respondents were asked which benefits they included within their voluntary benefits scheme back in 2011, 12% listed travel insurance, rising to 18% in 2014.

Fire burns condo in Anchorage doesnt spread

first_imgThe burned unit on Lunar Drive.A fire severely damaged an Anchorage condo near Tudor and Baxter on Thursday afternoon, but fire crews contained it before it spread to other units and structures.The Fire Department received a 9-1-1 call just before 2 pm saying the three story condo on Lunar Drive was engulfed in flames. Senior Fire Captain Mike Davidson said when the nine fire units arrived on scene, the sole occupant of the home was outside.“The important thing was the occupant himself had a functioning smoke detector, there were people outside who alerted him. He was able to immediately leave the house and not go back in. That’s the biggest thing we tell people is they need to get out, they need to not go back in. Because when they do go back in it often doesn’t work out well for them.”Davidson said the fire was contained within 20 minutes, but the condo was heavily damaged.A Fire Department press release said two firefighters sustained minor injuries and were transported to the hospital. The fire is currently under investigation and the cause is unknown.last_img read more

Federal Judge Tosses Lawsuit Challenging Baltimore Police NonDisparagement Clause

first_imgBALTIMORE (AP) — A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit challenging Baltimore’s policy prohibiting alleged victims of police brutality from disparaging police after they receive cash settlements.U.S. District Judge J. Frederick Motz granted motions by the city and the Police Department to dismiss Ashley Overbey’s lawsuit against them. The judge wrote that the non-disparagement clause the city used in its settlement with Overbey is “valid” and did not violate her First Amendment rights.The American Civil Liberties of Maryland plans to appeal the ruling.Baltimore has paid millions of dollars in such settlements in recent years. Critics say the non-disparagement clauses help cover up police misconduct and make it more difficult to accurately assess police actions.City Solicitor Andre Davis said the clauses are standard in civil settlements.last_img read more

Student to Blanket Congress With Prayers

first_imgBy Rev. Dorothy S. Boulware, Special to the AFROThere’s no end to the frustration people feel in the light of constant bullying and violence children experience in school as well as in communities. One 10-year-old has a plan to put a stop to it and she’s asking for everyone’s help.For almost two years, Winter Noel Smith has been making and collecting prayer squares from everyone who’d give her one. She’ll use 10,000 of them to make a gigantic blanket to present to Congress, to implore them to use their power to make the country a safer place for children.Winter Noel Smith displays the colorful squares for the prayer blanket she hopes to make soon. (Courtesy Photo)“When she was around six years old, children teased her about her hair,” her mother, Alexis Smith said. “When she wore it in bush balls they called her Minnie Mouse and when it was hanging straight, they called her Annie.”These names hurt her feelings and made her cry, so she knows what other children experience when they are bullied by their peers. She began to experience low self esteem so her mother enrolled her into a modeling class, along with reassuring her of her beauty inside and out.Winter Noel’s professional modeling photograph. (Courtesy Photo)“But she didn’t complete the class because she got modeling jobs right away,” Alexis Smith said, “which was a real boost to her self esteem.”But her success in modeling didn’t stop Winter Noel from caring about her peers.Thus the blanket. “First you say a prayer,” Winter Noel instructed. “Then you take fabric and make a square in it, and when you have enough of these, you can make a blanket.”The prayers are confidential and all inclusive, “whatever you feel compelled to talk to God about,” Winter Noel said.Her squares have already made quite an impact. She has shown them and collected some at community events. She’s gotten the attention of passersby including Girl Scouts every time she’s had a vending table including a recent KidPreneur Expo. Everyone wants to submit a square and be included in the blanket.She’s garnered so much attention that one of her squares is exhibited at the Education Building until May 1, and another is in the Banneker-Douglass Museum, both in Annapolis.Her mother feels much of what her daughter is accomplishing is due to the social justice curriculum of the Monarch School Winter Noel attends.“They’re learning about service and empathy and compassion,” Alexis Smith said. “They even give them awards to reinforce their positive behavior.”She’s tempted to make an award for her daughter. “A perseverance badge. She’s relentless and never gives up.”Prayer squares can be sent to Winter Noel Smith, Love United Christian Church, 7207 Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard, Glen Burnie, Md. 21060.last_img read more

EOS 3D Service to SSSF allows the Harms Study Group surgeons access to 3-D data for their patients undergoing scoliosis surgery. “EOS’ modeling capabilities fit seamlessly into our strategic plan to research and identify new spinal deformity treatment techniques and we couldn’t be more pleased to partner with the company as the first users of the EOS 3D Service” said Michelle Marks, executive director of the SSSF.The EOS system provides full-body stereo-radiographic images of patients in functional positions, in both 2-D and 3-D, as well as related software solutions. EOS exams require a radiation dose 50-85 percent less than digital radiology and 95 percent less than basic computed tomography (CT) scans. The new EOS Micro Dose option, recently cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, allows a further drastic step towards the ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) principle by bringing pediatric spine follow-up exams at a dose level equivalent to a week of natural background radiation on Earth.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Advanced Visualization | July 03, 2019 TeraRecon Unveils iNtuition AI Data Extractor Artificial Intelligence (AI) and advanced visualization company TeraRecon announced its new iNtuition AI Data Extractor… read more Technology | Artificial Intelligence | June 20, 2019 TeraRecon Receives First-of-Kind FDA Determination for Northstar AI Results Explorer Advanced visualization and artificial intelligence (AI) technology provider TeraRecon has successfully completed a U.S… read more Related Content Technology | Neuro Imaging | August 07, 2019 Synaptive Medical Launches Modus Plan With Automated Tractography Segmentation Synaptive Medical announced the U.S. launch and availability of Modus Plan featuring BrightMatter AutoSeg.

EPA No widespread harm to drinking water from fracking

first_imgThe EPA assessment tracked water used throughout the fracking process, from acquiring the water to mixing chemicals at the well site and injecting so-called “fracking fluids” into wells, to collection of wastewater, wastewater treatment and disposal.The report identified several vulnerabilities to drinking water resources, including fracking’s effect on drought-stricken areas; inadequately cased or cemented wells resulting in below-ground migration of gases and liquids; inadequately treated wastewater discharged into drinking water resources; and spills of hydraulic fluids and wastewater.Congress ordered the long-awaited report in 2010, as a surge in fracking fueled a nationwide boom in production of oil and natural gas. Fracking rigs have sprouted up in recent years in states from California to Pennsylvania, as energy companies take advantage of improved technology to gain access to vast stores of oil and natural gas underneath much of the continental U.S.Fracking involves pumping huge volumes of water, sand and chemicals underground to split open rock formations so oil and gas will flow. The practice has spurred an ongoing energy boom but has raised widespread concerns that it might lead to groundwater contamination, increased air pollution and even earthquakes. New Year’s resolution: don’t spend another year in a kitchen you don’t like New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies “The Obama administration is now zero for four,” Inhofe said. “EPA, the U.S. Geological Survey and others have said that hydraulic fracturing is indeed safe.”But Sen. Edward Markey, D-Mass., said fracking and related activities have the potential to severely impact the nation’s drinking water and endanger public health and the environment.“While the number of cases (where fracking has contaminated drinking water) may be small, the impacts to public health and safety are large,” Markey said. “EPA must ensure that these activities occur appropriately with robust safeguards to ensure clean and safe drinking water.”__Follow Matthew Daly: © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. But Lauren Pagel, policy director of the environmental group Earthworks, said: “Today EPA confirmed what communities living with fracking have known for years: Fracking pollutes drinking water.”“Now the Obama administration, Congress and state governments must act on that information to protect our drinking water and stop perpetuating the oil and gas industry’s myth that fracking is safe,” she said.EPA officials said the report was not intended to prove whether fracking is safe, but instead was aimed at how state regulators, tribes, local communities and industry can best protect drinking water and reduce the risks of fracking. The report has cost $29 million since 2010, the EPA said, with another $4 million expected this year.“It’s not a question of safe or unsafe,” Tom Burke, deputy assistant administrator of EPA’s Office of Research and Development, said in a conference call with reporters.The issue for the EPA is “how do we best reduce vulnerabilities so we can best protect our water and water resources?’” Burke said.Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, said the report was “the latest in a series of failed attempts” by the Obama administration to link fracking to systemic drinking water contamination. 0 Comments Share 5 treatments for adult scoliosis Top Stories Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facilitycenter_img ErrorOK ErrorOK Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement How Arizona is preparing the leader of the next generation Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober An estimated 25,000 to 30,000 new wells were drilled annually from 2011 to 2014, the report said. While fracking took place in at least 25 states, most of the activity occurred in four states: Texas, Colorado, Pennsylvania and North Dakota.About 6,800 public drinking water sources serving more than 8.6 million people were located within 1 mile of a fracked well, the report said.The report identified 151 cases from 2006 to 2012 in which fracking fluids or chemicals spilled on or near a drilling well. The spills ranged from 5 gallons to more than 19,000 gallons, with equipment failure the most common cause. Fluids reached surface water in 13 cases and soil in 97 cases, the report said. None of the spills were reported to have reached groundwater.Industry groups hailed the EPA study as proof that fracking is safe, while environmental groups seized on the report’s identification of cases where fracking-related activities polluted drinking water.“After more than five years and millions of dollars, the evidence gathered by EPA confirms what the agency has already acknowledged and what the oil and gas industry has known: hydraulic fracturing is being done safely under the strong environmental stewardship of state regulators and industry-best practices,” said Erik Milito, upstream group director of the American Petroleum Institute, the oil industry’s top lobbying group. Sponsored Stories WASHINGTON (AP) — Hydraulic fracturing to drill for oil and natural gas has not caused widespread harm to drinking water in the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency said Thursday in a report that also warned of potential contamination of water supplies if safeguards are not maintained.A draft study issued by the agency found specific instances where poorly constructed drilling wells or improper wastewater management affected drinking water, but said the number of cases was small compared to the large number of wells that use hydraulic fracturing, better known as fracking.last_img read more
