SecretaryGeneral reports improvement and new technology in UN news delivery

The United Nations department responsible for delivering news and information to the world has strengthened its global outreach by adopting a client-oriented approach, upgrading its use of technology, and delivering more information in more languages to more places around the world, says a report of Secretary-General Kofi Annan. As part of Mr. Annan’s reform measures, a systematic evaluation of the UN Department of Public Information (DPI) was undertaken, and substantive changes were made to the delivery of communications, reports, and news, according to the publication. Innovations include the introduction of an e-mail news service delivered directly to the desktops of approximately 40,000 subscribers as of June 2005, an increase of 20 per cent over the previous six months, and the introduction of UNIFEED, a daily 10-minute TV broadcast five days a week to over 500 Associated Press TV-news subscribers. The Secretary-General Spokesman’s office has also carried out a number of activities aimed at increasing its international reach, providing print and broadcast material via daily webcasts and through UN information centres. As a result, many more news organizations have covered UN news stories, such as the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) Report 2005 which was covered in June by all the major news wires and ABC, CNN, and BBC, said the report. During 2004, the UN webcast was viewed over 3.3 million times. With the broadening of linguistic reach one of its major goals, the Office of the Spokesman for Mr. Annan provided many of its 243 press briefings in French in addition to the English language during the past year. The radio, TV and photo services sections of DPI were responsible for creating several partnerships with news agencies. This includes a partnership with the Dutch multimedia news agency with access to 10 million viewers a day, and an agreement with Bloomberg TV to provide UN public service announcements for its Asian and Latin American feeds. The Dag Hammarskjold Library introduced an info delivery tool called “UN Pulse” which highlights the latest online information and reports issued by the UN. At the same time, the 54 local news centres played a major role in promoting the Secretary-General’s reform agenda and the MDGs by placing articles in over 200 newspapers worldwide, says the report. The public can sign up for News Centre e-mail services and access the daily webcasts from http://www.un.org/news. read more

Ottawa seeks cooperation but prepared to go it alone on securities regulator

Ottawa seeks co-operation, but prepared to go it alone on securities regulator AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by The Canadian Press Posted Mar 21, 2013 7:37 pm MDT OTTAWA – Finance Minister Jim Flaherty is sending out a notice that he is prepared to go it alone on establishing a national securities regulator if provinces won’t agree.The declaration is contained in a two-page notice in the 2013 budget, informing the provinces that Ottawa still seeks a co-operative approach with the provinces, but it won’t wait forever.“If a timely agreement cannot be reached on a common regulator, the government will propose legislation to carry out its regulatory responsibilities consistent with the decision rendered by the Supreme Court of Canada,” the budget states.The last time Ottawa tried to move ahead with a national regulator, several provinces led by Quebec and Alberta fought to stop it from intruding in provincial authority.The Supreme Court agreed with the provinces, but left Flaherty an opening by ruling that Ottawa has a role in matters of national importance and scope, including preventing systemic risks in the financial system.In the budget statement, the government said it was prepared to delegate the administration of its own securities legislation to a national regulator “if a critical mass of provinces and territories were willing to do the same.”But if an “timely agreement” cannot be reached, it would go ahead with legislation dealing with its areas of jurisdiction as defined by the court.“This will include the capacity to monitor, prevent and respond to systemic risks emerging from capital markets,” it said.“A federal capital markets regulatory framework would be applied consistently on a national basis and would not displace provincial securities commissions, which would still manage the day-to-day regulation of securities activities.”It gives no time limit for an agreement, but in the meantime it is extending the mandate of the Canadian Securities Transition Office to work on the project.Flaherty has been trying to establish a national regulator almost from the first day he became finance minister, only to be frustrated at every turn by provincial objections and most recently by the courts.He has pointed out that Canada is the only major industrialized country without a single regulator, increasing costs to businesses seeking to raise money in Canada and making enforcement and prosecution of fraud more difficult. read more

Greenpeace Lignite plans threaten EU climate targets

first_imgThe expansion of lignite (brown coal) mining in the EU could add 118 Mt to its annual carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions – nearly half Spain’s CO2 output in 2012 – according to analysis by Energydesk and Greenpeace. The analysis found that around 10% of the EU’s total CO2 emissions come from burning lignite, which releases more CO2 and other pollutants than hard coal. The data comes as EU leaders prepare to attend an international summit on climate change in New York next month (September).Europe has committed to cutting CO2 emissions by 80-95% by 2050 but lignite mining is growing, with plans for two mines in Poland that would likely to add 20% to the country’s annual emissions.Mines are becoming more extensive in places such as Germany and Poland – the top users of lignite in Europe.In addition to the mines there are plans to enlarge and build plants that burn brown coal in several countries in the EU. Once again, these include Germany and Poland, but also Greece, Slovenia and Czech Republic.Lignite is a volatile substance and unsuitable for transporting long distances – so the expansion of mines and the plants that burn the material often go hand-in-hand.Burning lignite currently makes up around 10% of the EU’s total (2012) CO2 emissions – over 350 Mt of CO2 a year, according to an analysis by Greenpeace and Energydesk. This is a significant tranche, considering that only nine of the EU28 (almost a third) burn lignite.On top of this the research revealed that plans for new lignite-firing units across Europe could add approximately another 118 Mt of CO2 – more than a third of current emissions from brown coal -according to data.Though Germany is currently the largest user of lignite, Poland tops the list for future expansion – planning to emit 4.5 times as much as CO2 from its lignite firing as Germany, which still comes in second.To fuel the plants there are plans for two mines in Poland (Gubin and Legnica) which together would add 20% to the country’s emissions. By 2050 their emissions alone would exceed Poland’s limit under EU emissions targets.On the German side of the border Swedish operator Vattenfall’s lignite operation in Lusatia emits the same amount of CO2 as Sweden itself.Greece, which relies on lignite for around half of its electricity generation – is pipped to the third spot for planned emissions by Romania. Bulgaria and Czech Republic aren’t far behind.The expansion plans are designed to ensure more energy comes from domestic sources – but they threaten the EU’s ability to meet its climate targets. The potential CO2 emissions from brown coal reserves in Poland and Germany are more than 8,500 Mt, according to calculations by energy analyst Lauri Myllyvirta.But to meet the currently proposed 40% 2030 EU target Germany and Poland would have to slash carbon emissions by 18,000 Mt on 1990 levels. The problem, therefore, would be that to meet the target while expanding lignite mining, would force emissions cuts elsewhere in society which are highly implausible.Thus if these key countries continue to expand their lignite operations, this could have the knock-on effect of risking the EU’s ability to slash its carbon emissions – and even jeopardize a global climate deal.Vattenfall recently noted that activists from several countries tried to form an “8 km human chain between Kerkwitz in Germany and Grabice in Poland. Greenpeace, Bund and Berliner Energietisch are some of the organisations that [took] part in the anti-coal chain on August 23.“The initiative is targeting plans to expand lignite mining in the region. Vattenfall has announced its ambition to extend two existing open cast mines: Nochten and Welzow-Süd.“The federal states of Brandenburg and Saxony have approved the plans and Vattenfall presently continues to work with the permission processes. This is expected to last for two to three years. Only after that a final approval from the authorities is expected.”Wolfgand Rolland, Head of Business Communication Mining and Generation, reiterates Vattenfall’s firm conviction to be a partner in the German energy turnaround (Energiewende). “Vattenfall is investing heavily in renewable energy production in Germany. Last week we announced the decision to construct the Sandbank offshore wind farm in the German North Sea together with Stadtwerke München.”However lignite will be crucial to meet the German electricity demand. It is also considered a reliable partner to volatile renewable energy sources since lignite can be used to balance load according to Rolland. “Lignite’s share of the gross production of electricity in Germany has been at a stable level of 25% for the last 15 years.”Vattenfall picture by Kathrin Rößler.last_img read more

TheScoreies Morning Line everything you need to enjoy day three at Cheltenham

first_imgUpdated at 12.14 Source: John Giles(Ruby Walsh is confident unbeaten Annie Power can continue her impressive success at Cheltenham today)Three big talking points1. Can Geraghty triumph for third time in the Novices’ Chase? Source: PA Wire/Press Association Images(Irish jockey Barry Geraghty has already won twice at this year’s festival and 30 times in total)The Novices’ Chase, which gets underway at 1.30pm today, is undoubtedly one of the most difficult races to call with a number of strong contenders. Paul Nicholls’ Wonderful Charm and Willie Mullins’ Felix Yonger are unsurprisingly among the favourites, as is Jonjo O’Neill’s  Taquin Du Seuil.Meanwhile, Ireland’s Barry Geraghty is looking to claim a win for the third day in succession with Oscar Whisky, after previous triumphs on Jezki and O’Faolains Boy in the Champion Hurdle and RSA Chase respectively.Following Wednesday’s developments, Geraghty now has more wins (30) at the festival than anyone apart from Ruby Walsh (41).2. Benefficient and Dynaste set to go head to head again in Ryanair Chase Source: PA Archive/Press Association Images(Benefficient ridden by Irish jockey Bryan Cooper triumphed at last year’s festival)It’s no surprise to see Benefficient and Dynaste listed as the favourites in this year’s Ryanair Chase (2.40pm).The two came first and second respectively a year ago in Jewson Novices’ Chase, and Benefficient’s victory was somewhat of an upset on that occasion, having been priced at 20/1 .But don’t be surprised if Tony Martin’s eight-year-old emulates his previous success this time around, particularly given his trainer’s recent suggestion that the ground will suit the Irish gelding.Dynaste, meanwhile, has not been in action since putting in a disappointing performance in the King George VI Chase on St Stephen’s Day, and so his rival appears to have the edge going into this encounter.Moreover, Paul Nicholls’ Al Ferof, who’s ridden by Daryl Jacob, is arguably the most likely to trouble the aforementioned duo, and represents a tempting alternative gamble at 4/1.3. Will Annie Power live up to expectations in Ladbrokes World Hurdle? Source: Racing UK/YouTubeIf races were decided on paper, then Willie Mullins’ Annie Power would be the clear winner in this one, with odds of 7/4 at the time of writing.The favourites have performed relatively well so far this year, with Sire De Grugy and Faugheen coming out on top yesterday, and the undefeated mare, with a phenomenal ten wins from ten outings, is strongly positioned to continue that trend. Nevertheless, there are doubts over whether the Irish horse has the stamina to prevail today, despite jockey Ruby Walsh trying to allay these concerns in the build-up to the event.If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, More Of That (10/1) and the four-time champion between 2009 and 2012 Big Buck’s (3/1) are all surely worth a punt with Quevega unlikely to run after winning a record sixth straight Mares’ Hurdle on Tuesday.Watch all the action unfold from 3.20pm in what looks set to be an enthralling race.Nap of the Day Most people are seeing the Ladbrokes World Hurdle as a straight showdown between Annie Power and Big Buck’s, but horse racing is rarely so simple. Rule The World may be an outsider, but Mouse Morris’ horse appears to be priced invitingly at 9/1 (at the time of writing).An each-way fancy Source: PA Wire/Press Association Images(Taquin Du Seuil, pictured above with trainer Jonjo O’Neil and stable lass Kate, has decent odds this year)The Novices’ Chase looks like anyone’s race, though Oscar Whisky (6/1) and Taquin Du Seuil (8/1) are two of the genuinely strong contenders and consequently would be well worth an each-way bet.AccumulatorA treble on Taquin Du Seuil, Al Ferof and Big Buck’s is a somewhat daring but hardly unreasonable bet.As it happened: Cheltenham Festival 2014, Day 2>The Winner’s Enclosure: Irish eyes smiling once again after Day Two>last_img read more

Vancouvers Mac Potts done on American Idol still beloved by fans

first_imgMac Potts won’t be the next American Idol, but Clark County sure does idolize him.Vancouver pianist and singer Potts was eliminated from the ABC-TV talent competition without ever appearing on the small screen. That has led to a big blowback on social media from Potts fans who faithfully kept watching and waiting, only to be supremely let down.“As disappointing as it is that they did not feature your amazing talent, we know that this outcome does not define your talent or success!” is a typical reaction.“You’ve always been an idol to me,” another fan posted.“I’m very disappointed that your talent wasn’t aired, but know this was a learning experience that will just make you stronger,” said yet another — one of hundreds who posted Tuesday morning on the “Mac Potts Music” Facebook page.Potts confessed that he found Hollywood Week on “American Idol” exciting, but pretty frustrating too. He was repeatedly assured that he would appear on TV, at least briefly, and it was only a matter of when. But “when” turned out to be “never,” as fans discovered this week.That’s more disappointing than not winning, Potts told The Columbian. Now he doesn’t even have a video record of his visit or performances, he said. “I really wanted something to look back on,” he said.last_img read more

TiVo FCC Filing Suggests Android TV Device Coming in Time for CES

first_img Popular on Variety A filing for a new TiVo remote control suggests that the company may be getting ready to show an Android TV-based set-top box at CES in Las Vegas next month. The device likely won’t be sold to end users, but instead ship to TV operators looking to combine TiVo’s DVR capabilities with Google’s TV platform.A TiVo spokesperson declined to comment.The filing, which was made by TV remote control manufacturer Universal Electronics, details a “TIVO Creek Android Voice Remote.” It includes a picture showing a remote that vaguely resembles the TiVo-typical peanut shape, albeit with a significantly smaller form factor.The remote is TiVo-branded, but comes without TiVo’s signature thumbs-up and thumbs-down buttons. It includes a Netflix button as well as a button for Google’s Android Assistant. There is no separate microphone button, suggesting that the device uses the Assistant for all voice search needs. TiVo first announced that it was going to expand to Android TV at CES 2018, with a goal of signing up operators for what the company calls its “next-gen platform.” It subsequently signed some deals with operators, including TDS Telecom, to use Android TV-based TiVo devices. The company didn’t announce any plans to use Android TV for its retail products.The remote disclosed in Monday’s filing doesn’t feature any obvious operator branding, but a VOD button suggests that it was designed with operator use in mind. TiVo’s business has long been focused on operator relationships, but the company continues to build and market DVRs for end users, including some devices targeting cord cutters.Like TiVo, Google has also seen a lot more traction for its TV products in the operator space. Android TV in particular has struggled to compete in the streaming device retail market against Roku and Fire TV, but the company has been signing up a number of operators to use the platform for its next-generation set-top boxes. One example for this is AT&T, which is currently testing an Android TV-based set-top box for the next generation of its DirecTV service.center_img ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Thats not going to be the case in 2018 Im pret

first_imgThat’s not going to be the case in 2018.“I’m pretty excited about it. I remember how it well it worked when we went 13-3 when (center) A.Q. (Shipley) was back there running the fullback,” left tackle D.J. Humphries said. “So I’m pretty excited to see how it’s going to work for us as far as full-time.”Though Ramesh is an undrafted rookie out of out of Wisconsin, Coleman is entering his sixth season in the NFL. He joined the Cardinals after spending last season with the Falcons, which came on the heels of a four-year stint in Seattle.Last year, Atlanta had the No. 13 rushing attack in terms of total yards yet averaged 4.3 yards per carry, which tied for third-best in the league.By comparison, the Cardinals ranked 30th and 31st, respectively, in the same categories.Not to say Coleman is the answer to the Cardinals’ run game issues, but his addition certainly can’t hurt.Also, Johnson is healthy. He was not last season, a fact that can’t be ignored when looking at the rushing numbers from a year ago.Johnson’s ability to run with the football was one of the things Wilks singled out after Day 1 of OTAs.“Just his movement. His ability to be able to play with vision. Make the cut. Get vertical. Also, when you look to put him out in space, some of the things he does out there,” Wilks said. “Again, I think he is an every down back. That’s a major plus at this level. It’s great to see him out there working.” TEMPE, Ariz. – Standing at his locker following the first day of organized team activities, Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson was asked how he felt about the team’s newest feature, one not seen in the previous five seasons: The fullback.“It’s nice to always have more blockers in the run game,” he said, smiling. “I’m excited.”And why wouldn’t Johnson be. The idea of having another body move would-be tacklers out of the way and help open up running lanes should make any running back happy. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “I think it’s always a plus when you got somebody to be able to take the brunt of the punishment or the blow first,” head coach Steve Wilks said. “I think (Johnson) is going to benefit.”Wilks’ predecessor, Bruce Arians, did not believe in the fullback position.When Arians was hired in 2013 one of the first personnel moves the Cardinals made was trading the one fullback on the roster, Anthony Sherman, to Kansas City for cornerback Javier Arenas.The fullback wasn’t seen again in Tempe until the recent signings of Derrick Coleman and Austin Ramesh.“I think it makes my job a little bit easier,” Johnson said. “Having those guys being able to pick up linebackers or d-ends or anybody on the defensive side makes my read a little bit easier.”Related LinksCardinals’ Markus Golden on his ACL rehab: ‘I’ll be out there soon’Cardinals hit the field for OTAs; David Johnson, Josh Rosen impressThe adjustment with a fullback sharing the backfield will be minimal, according to Johnson, who did run behind a fullback in college.“Last year, we didn’t have a designated fullback but our tight ends did the job,” he said. “This time we’ll have someone actually in there to block. It’s not going to change much.”To be fair, the Cardinals did line up with a fullback a handful of times under Arians, typically in goal line or short yardage situations. But that fullback usually was an extra offensive lineman. Of course, what Wilks and everyone else are seeing right now is players practicing in helmets and shorts. The pads won’t come until training camp, when a better representation of the Cardinals offense will be on display.Still, what Johnson has seen on the field so far has him excited.“Very excited. It’s a good offense. All the new guys are doing really well,” he said. “I love Sam (Bradford) at quarterback. He’s being a great quarterback, great leader. Already telling guys, everyone what they’re doing. Already teaching and coaching everyone. I’m very excited about this offense, for sure.“It’s going to be a good year I feel like.” Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact 7 Comments   Share   Arizona Cardinals’ David Johnson (31) runs during an organized team activity at the NFL football team’s training facility, Tuesday, May 15, 2018, in Tempe, Ariz.
