Media reports say at least 16 people were killed during Wednesday’s attack, which took place in the remote village of Mpama in North Kivu province, close to the mines at Biseye. Mining is a lucrative source of income in the impoverished region, which continues to be beset by outbreaks of fighting involving militia groups and the army.Troops from the Congolese army (FARDC) stationed nearby were dispatched to find the militiamen, but they had already fled, according to a press statement issued today by the UN peacekeeping mission, known as MONUC.Alan Doss, the head of MONUC and the Secretary-General’s Special Representative to the DRC, denounced the attack.“Nothing can justify these crimes committed by the armed groups that strike at civilians,” Mr. Doss said.MONUC established a medical assistance team in the nearby town of Ishenga to treat the injured, with some others evacuated to other centres. The blue helmets have also stepped up their patrols in the Walikale-Biseye area. 15 August 2009The United Nations peacekeeping operation in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is providing medical assistance to the victims of a deadly attack by armed militiamen in a mine-rich area in the strife-torn east of the country. read more

Many antibiotics are no longer effective in fighting infections as those infections have built up resistance to the medication. Deaths due to antimicrobial resistance (AMR) could surpass annual cancer fatalities, a situation which the UN has called a “global health emergency.” The UN agencies, which include the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), the World Health Organization and the UN Environment Programme called for the more responsible use of antibiotics in humans, animals and agriculture at the opening of World Antibiotic Awareness Week (WAAW) in Asia and the Pacific on Monday, 12 November.The main message of the awareness week this year is “handle antibiotics with care,” focusing on action plans to prevent infections in livestock, aquaculture and crop production while promoting good farming and food safety. The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) defines antimicrobials as drugs which prevent and treat parasitic, bacterial, viral and fungal infections. However, overuse by health practitioners and misuse in the agricultural sector means they are no longer effective in fighting many infections. Antibiotics can end up in soil, water and the environment at large, giving microbes further opportunity to build up resistance FAO Assistant Director-General and Regional Representative for Asia and the Pacific, Kundhavi Kadiresan, pointed out. The UN considers AMR as a priority health issue to be tackled with as much urgency as Ebola and HIV. The three UN agencies have partnered with the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) as the FAO launches a new publication looking at ways to combat the threat of AMR. read more

first_imgJUNIOR MINISTER FERGUS O’Dowd has said that it is important that the State provides the right environment to encourage private companies to invest in oil and gas exploration in Ireland.There have been just four commercial natural gas discoveries since exploration began offshore Ireland in the early 1970s. The four discoveries were in Kinsale, Ballycotton and Sevenheads, producing gas fields off the coast of Cork and the Corrib gas field off the Mayo coast.To date, there have been no commercial discoveries of oil but the government is remaining positive about our prospects.In response to a parliamentary question, O’Dowd said that despite the low level of commercial discoveries to date, “working petroleum systems are known to exist in many of Ireland’s offshore basins, as demonstrated by a number of non-commercial discoveries as well as other oil and gas indicators such as hydrocarbon shows in wells”.CorribIreland currently imports approximately 95 per cent of its natural gas needs and 100 per cent of its oil requirements. According to O’Dowd, successful development of our indigenous resources would contribute to significantly reducing dependence on imported supply.He said it is estimated that construction of the onshore section of the pipeline a the Corrib development will take in the region of three years and first gas cannot be anticipated before 2014.“In its first four to five years of production, the Corrib Gas Field Development is expected to provide 60 per cent to 65 per cent of Ireland’s natural gas needs,” O’Dowd said.The right environment for companiesThe junior minister added that it is important that the State provides the right environment “to encourage private industry to take the risk associated with investing in exploration” in a number of ways including;Offering attractive and innovative licensing opportunities, such as the 2011 Atlantic Margin licensing round;Providing a fit-for-purpose, transparent and robust regulatory regime;Deepening knowledge of our offshore petroleum potential, in particular through data acquisition and supporting key research projects;Actively promoting the opportunity to invest in exploration in the Irish offshore, in particular to companies not currently active here.Read: €20 million seismic survey hopes to reveal Ireland’s true oil and gas wealth>Read: Rabbitte thinks fracking could be good for Ireland – but only if it’s safe enough>last_img read more

first_imgBrésil : EDF inaugure la première usine solaireLe PDG de la société française EDF, Henri Proglio, a inauguré la première usine solaire du groupe au Brésil hier. Elle permettra d’alimenter l’usine thermoélectrique de Macaé, dans l’Etat de Rio de Janeiro.Le producteur d’électricité français EDF vient d’annoncer l’inauguration de sa première usine solaire au Brésil. Patrick Simon, le directeur général de UTE Norte Fluminense, la filiale brésilienne du groupe, a déclaré à l’AFP que “c’est l’occasion de faire un projet pilote, un projet pionnier et qui répond à notre volonté d’exemplarité” en matière environnementale.À lire aussiUn lion retrouve la liberté après avoir vécu en cage pendant 13 ans (Vidéo)Cette usine est constituée d’un panneau solaire de 1.800 plaques photovoltaïques capable de délivrer une puissance maximale de 320 KW. Il sera en mesure de fournir l’intégralité de l’énergie consommée par l’usine thermoélectrique de Macaé, dans l’Etat de Rio de Janeiro. Avec une capacité installée de 869 MW, l’usine produit 20% de l’électricité consommée dans la ville de Rio et alimente près de 2 millions de personnes dans l’Etat. Cela permettra de réduire de 250 tonnes par an les émissions de CO2, a indiqué l’entreprise dans un communiqué.EDF reste un des premiers producteurs mondiaux d’électricité et UTE Norte Fluminense est la seule entreprise au Brésil du groupe public français. Or le solaire est peu utilisée au Brésil malgré les conditions climatiques tout à fait favorables à ce type d’énergie. EDF a donc d’ores et déjà un second projet d’usine solaire et mène en parallèle des études sur la construction de barrages hydroélectriques. De plus, si le Brésil décide de se doter de centrales nucléaires “EDF est prête à apporter ses compétences”, a indiqué Patrick Simon.Le 28 juin 2011 à 11:41 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

first_imgBOSTON — Former NFL star Aaron Hernandez hanged himself Wednesday in the prison cell where he was serving a life sentence for murder, taking his life on the same day his ex-teammates on the New England Patriots were set to visit the White House to mark their Super Bowl victory.His death came just days after the 27-year-old athlete was acquitted in a second murder case.Guards found Hernandez just after 3 a.m., Correction Department spokesman Christopher Fallon said. The onetime tight end was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead about an hour later.Hernandez had been housed in a single cell in a general population unit at the maximum-security state prison in Shirley. He tried to jam the cell door to prevent guards from opening it and hanged himself with a bedsheet tied to a window, Fallon said.Fallon said he was not aware of any suicide note. He said officials had no reason to believe Hernandez might take his life, and if they had had any such worries, he would have been transferred to a mental health unit.He helped the University of Florida win the 2008 NCAA championship, but he dropped to the fourth round of the NFL draft because of his behavior of college, where he failed a drug test, he was accused of punching a bar employee, and his name came up in an investigation into a shooting.last_img read more

first_imgWith Clark County residents paying taxes over the next few weeks, some are trying to illegally entice them to pay more.A number of people have reported to The Columbian recently that they have received scam calls, a common trend around tax season. One typical call features a person posing as an Internal Revenue Service official asking for money or information as a result of unpaid taxes.Bernice Garber, 75, of Vancouver recalled a phone call that her fiance, Ken Barker, received Feb. 25. A man on the other line claimed that Barker has three years of unpaid taxes and that a warrant would be issued for his arrest within 24 hours if he didn’t answer questions. At one point, the caller asked for Barker’s Social Security number.Garber then grabbed the phone from him.“I said, ‘I know you’re not with the IRS,’ ” Garber recalled.“I don’t care what you think,” the man said before Garber disconnected.Garber, 75, said age may have played a factor in the call to Barker, 80.“We have the most to lose. We’re on a fixed income. It’s not like we can go out and make up that money,” she said. “I was so mad.”Scammers may conduct research about a subject before calling them. The man who called Barker, for instance, knew his age.“This is what they do this time of year,” Garber said. “They’re very good. I hope people are aware this is happening.”last_img read more

first_imgRyan Poppe/Texas Public RadioU.S. Senator Ted Cruz.Senator Ted Cruz is once again charging his Democratic opponent, Congressman Beto O’Rourke, with opposing tax relief for victims of Harvey.The legislation, which Cruz co-authored, allowed people to deduct the cost of Harvey-related home damage from their taxes. It also allowed homeowners to dip into their retirement savings, without incurring a tax penalty, in order to pay for storm-related repairs.Cruz told Houston Matters the measure enjoyed bipartisan support from most of the Texas delegation. “Among those four Democrats who voted no, unfortunately, was the congressman from El Paso – my opponent in this race, Congressman Beto O’Rourke – who voted no on emergency tax relief for Harvey because, according to his public statements, he wanted to hold that tax relief for Harvey hostage for other unrelated policy goals.”The measure passed as part of a bill extending authorization of the Federal Aviation Administration. O’Rourke says he voted against it because the bill did not include reauthorization of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which was about to expire.

first_imgThere have been events in the past were sensationalized and/or dismissed as false conspiracies that still seem as if there may well be more behind them than meets the eye. One of these is the fact that between 1982 and 1988, well over 20 scientists who worked for the British company GEC-Marconi all died after having worked on Ronald Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative program.The SDI program, also known as “Star Wars,” was first proposed in 1983 by President Ronald Reagan. It was meant to develop a space-based anti-missile system. The U.S. and the Soviets were deep in the Cold War, and Reagan felt that the SDI would provide protection against a Soviet missile attack by intercepting missiles while they were still in the air, according to Atomic Archive.Ronald Reagan and Nancy Reagan aboard an American boat in California, 1964.In order to be successful, though, the program needed a number of advanced technologies that had yet to be researched or developed. Work on the program went on for several years, but was ultimately terminated by later administrations when the necessary technology proved to be too complicated to develop.GEC-Marconi was a British defense company that was involved in the SDI project. Altered Dimensions chronicles the deaths of 20 scientists employed by Marconi for the SDI, all of whom died either shortly after making important discoveries or were about to leave the company for other jobs.Strategic Defense Initiative logo (MDA is the Successor of SDI).A few of the deaths occurred between 1982 and 1985, but the vast majority occurred in a clump between August of 1986 and October 1988.Of those deaths detailed, only one was of apparently natural causes. Frank Jennings, a 60-year-old engineer for electronic weapons, was said to have died of a heart attack in June, 1987. Victor Moore died of a drug overdose, and his death was ruled a suicide.The Extended Range Nike Zeus/Spartan missile of the late-1960s was designed to provide full-country defense as part of the Sentinel-Safeguard programs. Projected to cost $40 billion ($302 billion in 2018) it would have offered minimal protection and damage prevention in an all-out attackOf the other many deaths that transpired during that two-year window, if a cause of death was determined, the determination was either suicide or accident. Weirdly, there is also a great deal of similarity between the ways in which a number of the deaths occurred.One drove his car off a bridge, another fell from his hotel window. Five of the scientists died of carbon monoxide poisoning in their cars or their garages. On two occasions, deaths were ruled to be accidental suffocation during “sex experiments.”The bright spikes extending below the initial fireball of one of 1952’s Operation Tumbler–Snapper test shots, known as the “rope trick effect.” They are caused by the intense flash of thermal/soft X-rays released by the explosion heating the steel tower guy-wires white hot. The development of the W71 and the Project Excalibur x-ray laser were based on enhancing the destructive effects of these x-rays.Two of the deaths were just inexplicably bizarre. In October, 1986, Ashad Sharif allegedly drove to a public park, tied a nylon rope around both his neck and a large tree, and then drove away quickly, decapitating himself.In April of the following year, Shani Warren was found drowned in 18 inches of water. She was gagged, hands bound behind her back and her feet tied, with a noose around her neck.It was suggested that she had somehow done all of that herself, then hobbled in her four-inch stiletto heels to the lake to drown herself, causing the coroner to declare the death not a homicide but instead leave the verdict open.Marconi S511 radar located at Norwich International Airport.As a twist on this last event, the lake where Warren was found was only a short distance from where another of the scientists had fallen off a railway bridge and subsequently died, on the same day.Was it all part of some governmental plot? It’s impossible for us to know, but it’s very difficult to believe it’s a coincidence that so many deaths occurred, so close together, of people who were all on the same project.ABM test vehicle (Homing Overlay Experiment). Photo by Cliff CC BY 2.0Furthermore, many of these incidents happened under odd or mysterious circumstances, sometimes very closely related in geographical location or in time.  With so many “suicides,” you might expect to see more that were done in more commonplace ways.It’s not too hard to believe that there may have been a couple of such incidents, but taken as a whole, it’s much more difficult to think they are all unrelated.Read another story from us: Incredible Historical Coincidences – Too Strange to be True?Whether these scientists were murdered by actors for the defense industry or a government, or whether perhaps they knew things they felt they just couldn’t live with, remains a mystery.last_img read more

first_imgeTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Edinburgh couple, Nicole Calder, 24, and Lauren Inglis, 26, stayed at the Clifton Mount Hotel in Newcastle on Saturday (19 September).They claimed management put them in a room they had not booked. They also claimed the room was dirty, neighbours shouted homophobic slurs at them and were up partying until 5am. On top of that a hotel staff member asked to access the basement through their room.The couple went to Newcastle in northern England to celebrate Calder’s birthday, but left unhappy.Noisy neighboursAlong with two friends the couple hit the town on Saturday night. When they got back to the hotel, their neighbours allegedly began to shout obscene comments.‘When I went back the people in the other room could see I’d spoken to reception so a few of them started saying things like “there’s the man” and “there’s the lesbian”,’ Inglis told The Scottish Sun.‘They were saying vulgar things about me having sex with my partner and then saying that I s**g my mum – more disgusting things like that.‘In this day and age you don’t expect to experience stuff like that. That people are still homophobic like that shocks me.’When the women complained, the receptionist allegedly told them nothing could be done because it’s a ‘party hotel’. ‘I went back to the reception to complain and the man behind the counter came down and told them to keep the noise down but didn’t mention the homophobic stuff,’ Inglis said.The customer is always rightAfter they left the hotel, the women sent an email complaining about their experience and asked for refund. But they did not expect the response they got.Hotel manager, Andy Singh, accused the women of being liars and he had no intention of refunding them.‘I’m sorry to hear about your recent stay but most of what you are saying is not true,’ Singh replied.‘Yes you complained about the group next door whom said [sic] they were not saying anything of the sort it was simply your word against theirs. I therefore suggest in the future to stop making so many lies up, there will be no refund.’But after Calder defended herself, Singh said the couple belonged in a cage.‘Please go ahead and do as you please your [sic] not fit enough to stay in a hotel people like you should be put in a cage with the rest of the wild animals,’ he wrote.In comments to The Scottish Sun, Singh accused the couple of being abusive. He also said he did not have anything against gay people.‘Under no circumstances have I anything against gay people, this is simply an excuse for a refund I am against liars which she clearly is and I have CCTV to prove everything I am saying is true,’ he said.Got a news tip?

first_img Sponsored Stories Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix _In March, a U.S. soldier allegedly went on a shooting rampage in two villages in Kandahar province, killing nine children, four men and three women and burning some of their bodies._In June, Allen flew to Logar province to personally apologize for the deaths of 18 women, children and village elders killed in an airstrike during a pre-dawn raid to capture a Taliban operative.“Your troops mercilessly martyr women and children in our country, destroy villages and houses, desecrate our religious sanctities, vilify our national honors and culture, set fire to our houses and green orchards or bulldoze them until they become leveled with the ground,” Omar’s statement said.Stepping up its war of words with the Taliban, the coalition has issued a dozen or more statements in recent weeks accusing the Taliban of civilian carnage.After a suicide bomber blew himself up last month at a wedding in Samangan province in northern Afghanistan, killing 23 people including an Afghan lawmaker who was the father of the bride, Allen said: “Once again the Taliban have murdered Afghans in cold blood with complete disregard for innocent life or to the sanctity of a wedding. Their depravity clearly knows no bounds.” Insurgents aren’t bothered by civilian casualties, even during Ramadan, said Khalid Pashtun, a member of parliament from Kandahar province, the spiritual birthplace of the insurgency.Many insurgents actually consider Ramadan appropriate because they believe any foe they kill will go to hell while a civilian fatality will go to heaven, he said. “I’ve heard them say many times that the civilians who get killed will go to heaven _ that this is good,” he said.The Taliban say that international soldiers’ mere presence in Afghan cities and towns puts citizens at risk. The insurgents denounce coalition aerial attacks that have inadvertently killed civilians. And they condemn international forces for razing villages in the south _ areas the coalition claims were impossible to otherwise clear because they were so booby-trapped with bombs.The Taliban exploited a rapid-fire succession of coalition setbacks earlier this year to further their information war:_In January, a video purportedly showing American Marines laughing and urinating on the corpses of Taliban fighters surfaced on the Web._In February, Muslim holy books were burned at a U.S. base, sparking deadly riots across the nation. Men’s health affects baby’s health too Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project That has left both sides locked in a battle of words, crafted to win the Afghan public’s support.The foreign forces and Taliban fighters have been issuing dueling statements ever since the conflict began more than a decade ago. Civilian casualties are the latest focus of the information war.In a message ahead of Eid al-Fitr, the feast that marks the end of Ramadan this weekend, Taliban leader Mullah Mohammad Omar instructed his fighters once again to avoid killing or wounding Afghan civilians.“Employ tactics that do not cause harm to the life and property of the common countrymen,” the one-eyed chieftain of the insurgency said in an eight-page message released to news organizations.It came days after at least 50 people were killed in bombings and gun battles that erupted on either end of the country in the deadliest day of violence for civilians this year. The Taliban has not yet claimed responsibility for carrying out the attacks Tuesday in Kunduz and Nimroz provinces, but the coalition wasted no time in hanging the blame on Omar’s shoulders.“Omar once again writes that his thugs should `pay close attention to the protection of life, property and honor … employ tactics that do not cause harm to life and property of the common countrymen,’” U.S. Gen. John Allen, the commander of American and NATO forces in Afghanistan, said Friday in his written response to Omar’s message. Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – A suicide bombing at a wedding, a deadly airstrike on a village, grenades in a mosque _ hundreds of Afghan civilians are dying violently this summer, while the Taliban and the NATO coalition wage verbal warfare.A U.N. report says 1,145 civilians were killed and 1,954 others injured during the first half of the year, 80 percent of them by militants.But like other aspects of this decade-long war, facts are often obscured by perception and propaganda. Comments   Share   Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day In June, after Taliban gunmen stormed a lakeside hotel near Kabul, leaving 18 dead, Allen said: “There is no doubt that innocent Afghan civilians were the intended targets of this unspeakably brutal attack,” Allen said.Earlier this month, a bomb exploded in a mosque in eastern Nangarhar, injuring 21 people including the mullah who was addressing the worshippers. The explosion, which shattered windows, doors and the roof of the mosque, occurred near where the mullah was standing and most of the other people injured were elders in the front rows.Allen condemned what he said was a “senseless act of terror against Afghans who were simply trying to practice their faith” during Ramadan.Mohammad Nahim Lalai Hamidzai, another legislator from Kandahar, said the Taliban consists of several factions, some of which care more about civilian casualties than others, he said. The Haqqani network, which is affiliated with al-Qaida, is aligned with the Taliban, yet often operate independently.“The ordinary Taliban don’t want to kill civilians _ they are fighting an emotional battle against the foreigners,” he said. “When civilians get killed everybody blames the Taliban, but we have a network of insurgents and nobody knows for sure who is doing which killings.” “Yet, as we saw in Nimroz and Kunduz provinces just days ago, Omar sent his assassins to slaughter dozens of innocent Afghan men, women and children.”“Either Omar is lying, or his henchmen are not listening to him.”The U.N. figures represented a 15 percent decrease in overall deaths and injuries from the previous year, but U.N. officials cautioned that civilian casualties were spiking as summer fighting continues.Those attributed to foreign and Afghan forces declined as both groups strengthened policies to protect civilians, the U.N. said _ 165 civilians killed in the first half of the year, down 35 percent from 255 in 2011. The majority _ 127 _ came from airstrikes, though that was also a reduction from the previous year.Beyond statistics, however, the conflict is as much a “war of perceptions” as it is a fight on the battlefield, said Thomas Ruttig, who co-directs the Afghanistan Analysts Network in Kabul.“The Taliban are attacking what they consider legitimate targets,” such as the Afghan police and army, foreign troops as well as Afghan government officials and their supporters, he said. “When they are attacking what they say are legitimate targets, they often do not care about bystanders.” Quick workouts for men Arturo Munoz, an Afghan expert at the RAND Corporation, said the key issue is whether Afghans accept and are swayed by the coalition’s condemnations of civilian deaths caused by militant attacks.“It does seem that the Afghan people are reacting negatively to the terrorist tactics used by the Taliban and the Haqqani network, which undeniably kill and maim far more civilians than U.S. or coalition operations,” Munoz said.But he said the coalition’s attempt to highlight civilian casualties caused by militants has been hampered by incidents like the Quran burnings, which sparked more public outrage across Afghanistan than the shooting rampage in Kandahar province.“Attacks on people can be seen as a normal part of war, but an attack on Islam is not normal and is not excusable,” Munoz said, adding that the U.S. was right to apologize and taking steps to prevent future desecration of Muslim holy texts. “Nonetheless, the legitimacy of the U.S. presence in Afghanistan was damaged.”___Associated Press Writer Amir Shah in Kabul contributed to this report.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.
