Ban stresses role of Group of 77 developing nations in advancing UN

28 September 2010From achieving global anti-poverty targets to tackling climate change and other critical environmental issues, the bloc of developing nations known as the “Group of 77 and China” has a vital role to play in ensuring progress on a host of priorities on the United Nations agenda, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today. From achieving global anti-poverty targets to tackling climate change and other critical environmental issues, the bloc of developing nations known as the “Group of 77 and China” has a vital role to play in ensuring progress on a host of priorities on the United Nations agenda, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today. “In all of these challenges, the strong leadership of the Group of 77 and China will be crucial,” Mr. Ban underscored at the Group’s annual ministerial meeting, which took place at UN Headquarters on the margins of the high-level debate of the General Assembly. “Your varied experiences… your rich perspectives all combine to enhance our debates and ensure that we build sustainable solutions for all,” he added.The Group, commonly known as the G77, was established in 1964 by 77 States but now represents more than 130 countries, usually including China. Its chairmanship is currently held by Yemen.Mr. Ban outlined the important role played by the Group in several areas, including their “crucial” participation in last week’s summit on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – the targets to slash hunger, poverty, disease and a host of other social and economic ills by 2015.The active engagement of the G77 is also vital, he said, on sustainable development issues and in setting a clear, strong agenda for the UN Conference on Sustainable Development to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2012 – also called Rio+20.“In the long-term, all governments must work to build environmentally friendly foundations of national economies,” added the Secretary-General.He also cited the critical leadership of the G77 when it comes to reaffirming the role of the UN in global governance, a central theme of the Assembly’s current session.“Nothing matches the legitimacy and global presence of the United Nations,” said Mr. Ban. “We have the widest membership and can ensure that the smallest and least powerful nations retain a voice in international rules and decisions.”Assembly President Joseph Deiss also underscored the vital role of the Group in working together in shaping better global governance.“The strength of your group is not only in size – that represents almost two-thirds of the United Nations membership and which spans across world regions. Many members of your group are also increasingly being recognized as emerging economic powers,” he told the meeting.Mr. Deiss noted that for many years the G77 has been an important driving force of many global economic and development issues on the Assembly’s agenda, adding that the worldwide attention paid today to the MDGs and the issue of financing for development is due to the perseverance of the Group. read more

Fonseka warns terror threat still not eliminated

Fonseka said that the defence establishment must be strengthened to counter the threat.He also castigated the President for some of the decisions he had taken in the recent past. He also said that information passed on to him showed that the threat from the Easter Sunday bombers has not been completely extinguished. Former Army Commander and United National Party Parliamentarian Sarath Fonseka today warned in Parliament that he does not feel the threat posed by terrorism to Sri Lanka has been completely eliminated.Fonseka slammed the statement made by President Maithripala Sirisena in Parliament yesterday where he had claimed that the threat had been mostly eliminated. The former Army Commander said that more needs to be done to fully eliminate the threat. Responding to a question raised by opposition Parliamentarian Wimal Weerawansa on why he supported Sirisena to be President in 2015, Fonseka said that he was never in support of the decision to nominate Sirisena as the common candidate in 2015.He said that former President Chandrika Kumaratunga had led the process to make Sirisena the Presidential candidate in 2015 and once the United National Party had agreed he had no choice but to support the decision taken by the party.

Brock students protest over universitys sexual violence policy

A group of students at Brock University are calling for a overhaul of the University’s sexual violence policy.It comes after a published report revealed that a Brock University Professor allegedly sexually harassed one of his female students, who then after reporting the incident to the University was told to keep quiet.Brock University President, Jack Lightstone was greeted by over 60 angry protestors.It was Lightstone’s first public appearance since the University came under fire over a sexual harassment case involving a student and professor.According to a published report, the former Brock student says a history professor gave her alcohol and tried to force himself on her in his office after a night of drinking with fellow students.That professor is David Schimmelpenninck Van Der Oye.Up until last week, the professor was teaching classes.While no charges have been laid according to Brock, Schimmelpenninck Van Der Oye is no longer assigned to a class or on campus.He is the acting Associate Dean of Graduate Studies and Research in Brock’s Humanities Department.Protestors are asking the University to take it one step further and have the professor resign from his post.The protestors say the University dropped the ball numerous times in handling this case.They say the Professor should have been immediately placed on paid leave until the investigation was completed.The investigation wrapped up in January.While Brock was one of the first universities in Canada to have protocols confronting sexual violence, some staff believe the policies need to change.In a statement released late in Tuesday, the university says, ” Brock has been receptive to, and mindful of, all concerns raised about how we have responded to this issue, and the university will be reviewing its current policies and processes.” read more

11 ways video games can make you a better person

first_imgEven though video games are one of the most profitable sections of the entertainment industry, they still get a bad rap. Ask most people and they’ll tell you that gaming is a waste of time at best and actively harmful at worst. While that might be true in some cases — nobody is going to argue that playing World of Warcraft until you have to poop in a sock so you don’t stop playing for bathroom breaks is a good idea — there’s a growing body of research that indicates that gaming might actually help you improve yourself. How, though?Help you deal with distractionsWhen you play a first-person shooter like Call of Duty, you can’t just focus on what’s in your crosshairs. A true gamer knows that awareness of the entire battlefield is essential to victory. Science backs that up, too. University of Geneva professor Daphne Bavelier has studied the effects that gaming has on your brain, and she’s discovered that fast-paced action games can lead to an increase in multitasking capabilities. Because gamers have to receive and process visual and auditory information quickly, it’s easier for you to divide your attention without losing steam.Slow the aging processWhat if playing video games could actually keep you young? It’s more likely than you think. A 2013 study at the University of Iowa recruited a group of senior citizens and had some play a specially-designed game that focused on testing the speed and precision of their brain. The point was to see if gaming was able to stop or slow down the natural degradation of reasoning ability that comes with age. Luckily for all of us, it was — the gamers saw improvement across the board, with participants displaying three year’s worth of cognitive gains after a year. Game on, friends.Reduce emotional scarringThe effects video games have on the brain are myriad and complex, but one little-known benefit to gaming is that it can actually help damp down traumatic memories. A study at Oxford University examined the effects of playing Tetris after an intense experience, and found that it significantly reduced the emotional impact of the trauma. The study took a group of people and showed them violent and otherwise painful images, then had half of the subjects play Tetris for 10 minutes immediately afterwards. The game players reported significantly fewer flashbacks and emotional disruptions in the following weeks.Help scientists solve problemsOkay, so this one doesn’t directly help you as a person, but advancing the world of science helps us all. There are a number of online games that let you perform fun tasks to help researchers. One notable is Foldit, a project developed by the University of Washington that lets you get microscopic and fold proteins. You get points for finding the most efficient folding steps, and the results have already been awesome — in 2011, Foldit players found the crystal structure of a virus that causes AIDS in monkeys, and in 2014 they efficiently redesigned an important protein used in synthetic chemistry.Make you a better surgeonNo, playing Surgeon Simulator 2013 isn’t the same as going to medical school, but a study conducted by Beth Israel and the National Institute on Media and the Family at Iowa State University in 2004 shows that gamers might actually be better at performing operations. The subjects were all doctors, some of whom were asked to play three hours of video games a week. At the end of the study, the gaming doctors were evaluated and found to be making 37 percent less mistakes in laparoscopic surgery and getting the surgeries done 27 percent faster. That’s a remarkable improvement.Get rid of cravingsSure, playing video games isn’t the most productive thing you could be doing, but they could be keeping you from even worse stuff. A team from Plymouth University and Queensland University of Technology conducted a study in 2015 where they asked subjects to send text messages when they were craving alcohol, food, sex or cigarettes. Half of them were instructed to then play a video game for three minutes and then re-check their craving levels. Gamers reported an average decrease of 13.9% across the board, indicating that a quick game can give you the willpower to fight your cravings.Help you fight depressionAs we get more and more familiar with the workings of the human brain, we learn about what games are doing to them. A study revealed that two regions of the brain receive near-constant stimulation when you game: the hippocampus, which controls memory and learning, and the “reward pathways” that help us motivate and achieve goals. Interestingly enough, people suffering from depression commonly have brain shrinkage in both of those areas. Gaming can quite possibly produce the brain activity needed to eliminate this physical effect and mitigate the biochemical causes of being depressed.Improve your eyesightThe prevailing wisdom is that staring at a video screen for a long period of time is bad for your eyes, but a study conducted by Canada’s McMaster University seems to indicate the opposite. Researchers took a group of people with lifetime cataract disorders and had them play Medal of Honor for a month, insisting that they log at least 40 hours of play during that time. After the month was up, 83% of the subjects displayed a marked increase in their visual abilities, including tracking moving objects and identifying faces.Make you morally consciousOne of the biggest arguments against violent video games is that they desensitize us to real-world violence and turn us into robotic killing machines. A 2014 study from the University of Buffalo came to the counter-intuitive conclusion that behaving badly in video games can actually make us morally upright, not the other way around. The researchers had players deliberately take “bad” actions in video games (i.e. playing as terrorists) and then measured their feelings of guilt afterwards. The subjects reported increased guilt feelings as well as more sensitivity towards positive moral concepts like fairness after playing.Improve decision makingWhen you game, you’re asked to evaluate situations at incredible speeds, and that rapid decision-making can have benefits in real life. A study at the University of Rochester evaluated those quick decisions and discovered that even though gamers are processing situations faster than the average Joe, the quality of those decisions was still high. The test group was divided into two groups. One played fast-paced games like Unreal Tournament, the other slow games like The Sims. Both groups were then tested on their decision-making skills. The fast game crowd consistently answered faster, but at the same level of accuracy.Make you richOne of the most inexplicable developments in gaming culture over the last few years has been the rise of “Let’s Players,” men and women who record or live stream their gaming to a devoted audience that hangs onto their every move. While only a small fraction of LPers make a living off of it, the upper echelon can rake in some serious cash. Minecraft player Jordan “CaptainSparklez” Maron made enough from his YouTube videos that he bought a $4.5 million mansion in the Hollywood hills.So, next time your parent or significant other isn’t too happy you’re playing games all night, either go out with them and enjoy time with the people you care about, or let them know that you’re bettering yourself and the world, and they want to live in a better world, right?last_img read more

Fallout 4 official mod support finally coming to PC PS4 and Xbox

first_imgPlayers on PC have been modding Fallout 4 ever since it was released last November. We’ve seen a lot of wild stuff coming from some creative folks out there, things like Randy Savage monsters, lightsaber mods, changing seasons, and even a recreation of BioShock Infinite’s Columbia. We’re about to see a whole slew of new mods as Bethesda is officially releasing the Creation Kit and mod tools to the public.While speaking to Game Informer after the DICE Awards ceremony, Executive Director Todd Howard revealed Bethesda’s plans for releasing the Creation Kit. The PC will be the first to get official mod support in April in-between two of the upcoming DLCs: Wasteland Workshop and Far Harbor. As for when the consoles will get mod support, expect the Xbox One to get it in May followed by the PlayStation 4 in June.Users will be able to search for mods on PC using the Workshop browser on Steam. No word yet on how players will be able to search for mods on consoles. We also don’t know how this content will be curated by Bethesda. Some of the mods could potentially impact the performance of the game, not to mention be extremely NSFW, so we have to assume Bethesda will have a system in place to filter through this content.It’s great to see that modding is no longer relegated to the PC crowd, and that console-only owners can get in on the fun. Expect to see some outlandish Fallout 4 mods in the coming months.last_img read more

Does Our High School Popularity Affect Us Today

first_img Read the whole story: TEDx Psychologist Mitch Prinstein talks about why we are biologically programmed to care about what others think of us, why teenagers first become addicted to popularity, and why being “cool” in high school may be bad for our long-term happiness and success. For the first time in the history of the human species, Prinstein argues, we have become confused about two different types of popularity, and many of us may unwittingly be focused on the wrong one. Mitch Prinstein, author of “Popular: Finding Happiness and Success in a World That Cares Too Much About the Wrong Kinds of Relationships,” is a board-certified clinical child and adolescent psychologist and the John Van Seters Distinguished Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has been the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology, the President of the Society for a Science of Clinical Psychology, President of the Society for Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology, and a member of the American Psychological Association Board of Directors. He and his research have been featured in over 200 international and national media outlets, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, National Public Radio, The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, CNN, Time magazine, New York magazine, The Atlantic, Scientific American, Forbes, Newsweek, Family Circle and elsewhere.last_img read more

UNESCO declares Costa Ricas Savegre a Biosphere Reserve

According to the National System of Conservation Areas (SINAC), it has 20 percent of Costa Rica’s flora, 54 percent of the country’s mammals, and 59 percent of birds.The territory, now the Savegre Biosphere Reserve, spans 312,914 hectares, and is also home to some 50,000 people. They subsist primarily on agriculture, livestock and fishing. Eco-tourism, as well as sustainable aquaculture businesses, have gained momentum in recent years in the region.President Luis Guillermo Solís in 2015 signed an executive decree banning dams from the Savegre River for 25 years.According to SINAC, the Savegre Biosphere Reserve territory includes seven protected areas: Manuel Antonio National Park, Cerro Nara Protected Area, Portalón Wildlife Refuge, Hacienda Barú Wildlife Refuge, Los Santos Forest Reserve, Quetzales National Park and Cerro Vueltas Biological Reserve.Fourth Biosphere ReserveSavegre’s new designation brings the number of UNESCO’s Biosphere Reserves in Costa Rica to four. However, this is the first to include coastal marine areas, consisting of sections of Manuel Antonio National Park in the Pacific province of Puntarenas.Costa Rica’s previously named UNESCO Biosphere Reserves include La Amistad National Park, named in 1982; the Central Volcanic Range, named in 1988; and the Agua y Paz Reserve in the Northern Zone, named in 2007.Biosphere Reserves are learning territories for sustainable development that seek to reconcile biodiversity conservation and the sustainable use of natural resources. New sites are designated every year by the MAB Council, which is composed of representatives of 34 elected UNESCO Members.The declaration of a Biosphere Reserve does not represent any substantial changes for the communities. It does not restrict people’s rights to the use of their lands, nor to the use of the area’s natural resources.The government, however, must ensure that the reserve maintains all the characteristics that made the UNESCO designation possible.

Qantas aims to end passenger disruptions within day

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: G.A As it intensively inspects its A380 fleet’s Rolls Royce engines, Qantas is hoping to recover operations and put an end to “significant disruptions” within 24 hours.Following from three mid-air emergencies last week that saw the grounding of Qantas’s fleet, Qantas has admittedly taken an “over-cautious” view of safety, unwilling to return its A380 fleet to service “until confident the issues have been identified and resolved”.Qantas does not expect to operate the A380 fleet for at least another 72 hours, Qantas said in a statement yesterday, adding that the addition of extra services should lessen disruptions to passengers within a day.To service passengers affected by disruptions to Qantas services, the airline has scheduled extra services from Los Angeles and hope that a departure from LAX on 8 November (PST) will clear a backlog of Australia-bound passengers.“A Special Assistance Team has been deployed to Los Angeles to assist,” the statement read.Passengers affected by the A380 disruptions will be compensated by Qantas and provided with hotel accommodation, meals and international phone calls.“Qantas has been very professional,” a Sydney travel agent told e-Travel Blackboard after speaking to a recently returned client.“Apparently ground staff were very helpful and informative.”The much beleaguered Qantas advised that investigations were focusing on “the possibility of an oil leakage in the relevant turbine area”, but to avoid further issues Qantas will continue to investigate other areas of the engine. “Engineers have been investigating the engines in detail and how their components and design perform under operational conditions, as opposed to the original out-of-factory expectations,” Qantas said.“These inspections are taking place in Sydney and Los Angeles with Qantas engineers working closely with Rolls-Royce, as well as the aircraft manufacturer Airbus and Australian regulators.”last_img read more

Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Red Bryant 71

first_imgArizona Cardinals defensive tackle Red Bryant (71) lines up against the Green Bay Packers during an NFL football game, Sunday, Dec. 27, 2015, in Glendale, Ariz. (Jeff Haynes/AP Images for Panini) “It was going to be the first time in seven years me and my wife were going to spend Thanksgiving with my family,” Bryant told Burns and Gambo Friday on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. “I wasn’t hunting, I was actually in the process of helping my mom get a vehicle. I was in a little town called Silsbee, Texas.“I got a call, I was at the dealership, and they said they wanted to see what I had been doing,” he added. “I said I was really contemplating retiring and that I thought I was done. They asked me what my weight was: I said at the time was probably about 335, 330.”In “All or Nothing,” a scene shows Cardinals general manager Steve Keim tell president Michael Bidwill his staff was looking into bringing Bryant in for a workout. McDonough later reminds Keim it’s the day before Thanksgiving.“That’ll determine whether he really wants to play football,” Keim tells McDonough.Twenty minutes later, McDonough returns to tell Keim that Bryant has one change of clothes but is driving to an airport for a workout early Thanksgiving morning.“That’s awesome. I mean this is freakin’ Thanksgiving,” Bidwill says. Adds McDonough: “He said, ‘I don’t need the money, I want to play because it’s the Cardinals.’ I thought that was pretty good.”Turns out Bryant was actually close not to taking the flight.The Cardinals can thank Bryant’s wife for pushing him to jump on the plane.“I kind of hesitated because I was like, I didn’t want to come and then not be prepared for the opportunity,” Bryant told Burns and Gambo. “That’s the worst thing you could do. My wife was like, ‘Babe … I really think you should go.’ I just feel like Coach Arians by giving me that opportunity when I thought I was done with football, I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I am for the opportunity.”The 32-year-old Bryant is still with the Cardinals, busy making violent hits — in coverage, even — during training camp.
