Central African Republic must do more to protect human rights of displaced

The country has been beset by widespread fighting and armed banditry in recent years, with some 200,000 Central Africans either internally displaced by the fighting or forced to live as refugees in neighbouring Chad and Cameroon. The precarious conditions in which over 100,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) still find themselves is a result of the conflict in the north, as well as abuses committed by dangerous criminal groups who are free to act with total impunity, Walter Kaelin, the Secretary-General’s Representative on the human rights of IDPs, said in a press release following a three-day visit to the country. In mid-2008, the Government struck an agreement with the rebel groups known as the Union of Democratic Forces for Unity (UFDR) and the Popular Army for the Restoration of Democracy (APRD) after talks in Libreville, Gabon, facilitated by that country’s President, El Hadj Omar Bongo Ondimba. “Signing the peace accords and holding the inclusive political dialogue mark considerable advances in the quest for peace and stability in the Central African Republic,” said Mr. Kaelin.“These steps allow it to now vigorously put in place durable solutions for internally displaced persons.”He stressed that CAR authorities have the responsibility to take specific measures allowing the displaced to exercise their right to return, as well as their right to security, food, housing, health care, education and participation in public life.During his stay in Bangui, the CAR capital, the Representative met with the Prime Minister, other ministers responsible for issues linked to IDPs, political/military movements, and representatives of the UN, donors and civil society. 12 February 2009An independent United Nations human rights expert today deplored the instability facing tens of thousands of vulnerable people uprooted by violence in the north of the Central African Republic (CAR), calling on local authorities to take action to protect the displaced. read more

United Airlines pays less at the pump earns more on the bottom

by The Associated Press Posted Oct 23, 2014 6:22 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email United Airlines pays less at the pump, earns more on the bottom line as 3Q profit soars CHICAGO – United Airlines appears to be hitting its stride after struggling to make a 2010 merger pay off.The airline’s formula is lower fuel prices and more revenue for every mile that passengers fly.United Continental Holdings Inc. said Thursday that third-quarter net income soared to $924 million, or $2.37 per share, compared with $379 million a year earlier.But the Chicago company’s shares fell in morning trading as analysts expressed disappointment with part of a fourth-quarter forecast. United said that revenue for every seat flown one mile, a closely watched figure in the airline business, would range between down 1 per cent and up 1 per cent.Stifel, Nicolaus & Co. analyst Joseph DeNardi said the forecast surprised investors because Delta predicted flat to 2 per cent growth in the same figure. United said it was competing against a ticket-sales gain that it recorded in last year’s fourth quarter.In trading shortly after the opening bell, United shares were down $2.02, or 4.1 per cent, to $47.09.Excluding special items, the company said it earned a record adjusted profit of $1.1 billion, or $2.75 per share, in the third quarter. Analysts, who usually exclude items, expected $2.70 per share.Revenue rose 3.3 per cent to $10.56 billion, matching the forecast of analysts, according to a FactSet survey. It helped that so-called ancillary revenue rose 10.9 per cent as the average passenger paid more than $22 per trip in fees for things such as checked bags and more legroom.Fuel spending fell 4.1 per cent, as the company paid $3.02 per gallon, a dime less than last summer. The figures included United Express regional flights.United has been plagued by technology glitches that alienated customers; it struggled more than rivals to keep flying during bad weather; and it lagged other airlines when they turned solidly profitable. As recently as the first quarter of this year, United was still losing $609 million while key rivals set profit records.But United earned a $789 million profit in the second quarter, beating Wall Street forecasts, and CEO Jeff Smisek said Thursday that the latest figures showed continued progress. He said the airline still has plenty of opportunities to increase profit margins “and improve the quality and efficiency of everything we do.” read more

Genocide begins with dehumanization no single country is immune from risk warns

“As we continue to fight and to realize the objectives, we pay tribute to the millions of men and women who have lost their lives to genocide,” said Mr. Adama Dieng as he briefed reporters at UN Headquarters in New York, as part of a series of events in the run-up to Human Rights Day, commemorated annually on 10 December. “We owe to them and to ourselves and future generations to realize a world free of genocide. We are still far from that, but we aim to make it happen,” he added. Genocide must and can be prevented if we have the will of applying the lessons learned from Rwanda, Srebrenica, and the Holocaust. It is important to identify risk factors that would lead to genocide rather than to wait to when people are being killed. The Holocaust did not start with the gas chambers and the Rwandan genocide did not start with the slayings. It started with the dehumanization of a specific group of persons. Genocide is defined by the UN as a crime that is committed against members of a national, ethnic or religious group solely because they are members of that group. Genocide also entails there being intent to exterminate a particular group. Genocide is when “you are being killed not for what you have done, but for who you are,” Mr. Dieng explained. Currently, 140 Member States are party to the UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide, which was adopted in 1948.On Thursday, Mr. Dieng’s office along with the Permanent Missions of Italy and Tanzania will launch a new Framework of Analysis for Atrocity Crimes which will focus on early warning signs and prevention strategies. “We know from our experience that genocide is not a single event but a process that takes time, planning and resources which could be halted at any stage,” he said.Marking the anniversary of Convention is an opportunity to renew our commitment to prevent genocide. “We must accept that there is no part of the world that can consider itself immune from the risk of genocide and all regions and all States must build resilience to these crimes,” the Special Adviser noted.It is the collective responsibility of Member States, international institutions, civil society as well as the media to prevent such crimes. He said that in 2005 world leaders committed to protecting populations who are at risk of genocide through the R2P, or ‘responsibility to protect’ initiative, now an international norm that addresses the failure to prevent and stop genocides, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.But the question remains why some States have been ready to address genocide and in some cases even prevent it, while others have, unfortunately, failed to do so. “We are still unable to protect people in Syria from human rights violations,” he said, adding that had the Security Council acted when the uprising against the Syrian Government was still peaceful, the current and devastating situation might look different. “Would we still have seen the rise of the barbaric group like ISIL[Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant]? Such groups do not come from nowhere,” Mr. Dieng said. As for other conflicts, he said atrocious crimes in South Sudan and the Central African Republic (CAR) are being committed based on the issue of identity because they are easily manipulated to generate fear, hatred, and violence. “We need to think about the significance of the Genocide Convention and do more on the promise of ‘never again.’ We need political leadership from Member States and the courage to take steps that are not always easy,” he said. When asked about the recent decision by the International Criminal Court (ICC) to drop the charges of crimes against humanity for Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, Mr. Dieng said that he respected the independence of the Court. Accountability for gross human rights violations which occurred in Kenya is important. Victims are waiting for justice. Answering a question on Gaza, he said he was not here to make a legal determination of genocide but analyse the risk of genocide. Last summer’s conflict may have led to crimes against humanity or war crimes. He was aware of Israel’s disproportionate military response. But when you send rockets from a civilian area, like Hamas did, that is a crime as well. When asked about crimes committed during the time of United States intervention in Iraq, he said that the American soldiers who were indicted and flown over to the United States to face justice. This is an example of a country that has no capacity to bring to justice criminals. On Ukraine, he said that the claims by civilians of genocide in the eastern part of the country, he reiterated that no region in the world is immune to atrocious crimes and called for all efforts to protect the rights of minorities in Ukraine. He also responded to questions on the treatment of the Tamils in Sri Lanka, increasing anti-Semitism in Europe, and Islamophobia. read more

DDay veterans set sail for emotional return to Normandy 75 years after

Fusilier Doug Farrington is another veteran onboard MV Boudicca who since the war has never been back to France. Now 93, he is among the youngest on board as he was sent to fight in Operation Overlord underage (the oldest to make the journey this week is 101-years-old). “I’m hoping it will be a bit quieter this time round,” he says.Fusilier Farrington arrived on Gold Beach 19 days after D Day and was on the frontline as the Allies drove German forces back through Europe. “It was fighting all the way,” he says. “People were being killed all the time and you lost a lot of your friends.” As well as remembering fallen colleagues he is looking forward to seeing the French civilians again – who 75 years ago clasped his hand in gratitude.“Back then they were very grateful we gave them back our freedom,” he says. “And I was only too happy to do it.” Stressing the importance of remembering the events of the Second World War for future generations, he admitted this would in all likelihood be the last milestone anniversary which veterans would be able to attend in significant numbers. “I don’t think there will be enough of us around by the time it gets to the 80th anniversary,” he said. “This will be the final one.”Age may have diminished their numbers but it has not wearied them. Two female singers were serenading the new arrivals with wartime ditties and 97-year-old Joseph Weaver, a Yorkshireman who served in the Royal Artillery, dropped his bags and danced along to Vera Lynn’s White Cliffs of Dover.  Joseph Weaver, 97 has a dance prior to boarding Those reliving the journey this time prefer a simpler word: a pilgrimage, to honour those who never returned.The veterans arrived by coachload from across the country and as they prepared to board the Boudicca on Sunday were greeted by members of the Dover Sea Cadet band.Rear Admiral John Roberts, who during D Day was a sub-lieutenant aboard HMS Serapis and later became Captain of HMS Ark Royal, delivered a crisp salute before inspecting the teenage musicians who looked slightly terrified to be under the scrutiny of such a high ranking officer – albeit one now 95-years-old. When he set sail 75 years ago it was as part of the largest seaborne invasion in history; an armada of 7,000 ships so vast bystanders observed one could practically walk across the English Channel.On Sunday night as the sun dipped over the White Cliffs of Dover and MV Boudicca powered out across a glittering millpond sea, Fred Brunt found himself once more aboard a ship heading to the beaches of Northern France – for the very first time since D Day.“It’s hard to say why I’ve never been back,” says Brunt, who back on June 6, 1944 was a young able seaman and the coxswain of a landing craft transporting a tank on to Sword Beach during the first wave of Operation Overlord.“It will be an emotional journey. One thing I shall never forget is all the dead bodies. I’m looking forward to stepping out again on Sword Beach and will think of all those young men.”The 94-year-old Brunt is one of 255 Normandy veterans aboard the cruise ship MV Boudicca, which has been chartered by the Royal British Legion to sail between the D Day commemorative events over the week ahead.  On Wednesday MV Boudicca returns to Portsmouth for the national commemorative service attended by the Queen and US president Donald Trump. On Thursday the veterans will be back in France for the annual memorial service at Bayeux Cathedral in Normandy and adjoining war cemetery which contains 4,144 graves of Allied troops – among them Marine Leonard Waygood. Rod Stewart with D-Day veteran Leonard Williams 93, who served in Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, aboard the MV Boudicca  Prior to the evening departure Dame Vera, now 102, played a recorded message for those on board. “It will be nostalgic and sure to bring back lots of memories,” she said. “Rest assured we will never forget what you all did for us.” The Central Band of the Royal British Legion struck up on deck while Sir Rod Stewart, accompanied by his wife Penny Lancaster, also made a surprise appearance, serenading the veterans with Sailing before the ship departed.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Veterans wave flags from the MV Boudicca as it leaves the port of Dover in Kent Addressing the nation during D Day King George VI described the mass sea and air assault to land more than 132,000 ground troops across five Normandy beaches as as “the great crusade”.  His good friend and fellow Royal Marine, Joseph Kelsey, 96, is making the journey onboard Boudicca to honour his memory.Kelsey joined up at 18 alongside Leonard Waygood and both men took part in the first wave of the invasion. Waygood was killed on the first day and Kelsey survived by a whisker.His landing craft was shelled by the Germans on the way in – killing several men on board – and another neighbouring craft took a direct hit. “I want to come back to remember my friend,” he says. “It is always very emotional to go back to the beaches.” Joseph Weaver, 97 has a dance prior to boarding Veterans wave flags from the MV Boudicca as it leaves the port of Dover in KentCredit:PA Rear Admiral John Roberts A young Fred Brunt (left) Rear Admiral John Roberts read more

CPL 2018 Explosive Warner says Stars batting lineup packs a punch

… ready for the tournament challengeDavid WarnerOn 8 August the St Lucia Stars will kick off the 2018 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) when they take on Trinbago Knight Riders in the opening fixture of the tournament.When they get started they will have explosive Australian batsman David Warner in their ranks and he can’t wait to get going.In an interview with CPLT20, the Aussie posited that “It’s the world’s biggest party! They always talk about how exciting CPL is for West Indies cricket and getting fans engaged, they absolutely love it. It is literally for the fans there, it’s a big massive party and it is just exciting that they can bring world class players and have a domestic competition in the Caribbean. Growing up as a kid, watching their West Indies fast bowling and all these rivalries with different batsmen and players around the world, that’s what you grow up and picture the West Indies as, so to play in the CPL is going to be a massive buzz for me as everyone talks about how good it is.”Warner says he is excited about the squad that the Stars have put together for the 2018 tournament, with all bases covered as they look to bounce back after a disappointing season last year.“I think that when you look at the batting unit, it looks very strong and obviously the all rounding unit, and bowling unit complements itself. I think the batting unit in the way I look at it is like hammer and tongs, so we can go out there and be almost 80/90 off the first six, but even if we lose a couple wickets we will still be flying at a rapid rate, that’s what I see with our batting order. We surely pack a punch there.”“We just have to win one game to be better than last year which is a positive, but I personally think that we have got a chance to actually progress and move a lot further forward than they did last year. Improvement is about attitude and if you go back to last year, win that first game and gain some momentum. You don’t want to look too far ahead, take each game as it comes.”When asked about what he is most looking forward to at Hero CPL he said it is about putting on a show for the fans in the ground.“It’s all about entertaining the crowd and bringing people to the game and for me that’s what I enjoy most about cricket. It’s about putting smiles on people’s faces and getting people to come and watch cricket and love sport. The Caribbean wickets are always consistently good, and the fans embrace cricket and its always just great fun to play there.”Darren SammyWarner will be playing with two of the great T20 all-rounders when he joins Kieron Pollard and Daren Sammy at the Stars. He has played against them in T20 tournaments around the world and in international cricket, but he doesn’t think being on the same side as these players will be that much different from playing against them.“I don’t think it will be too much different, the thing that they all bring is each individual is different in their character, but what they do bring to the table is their competitiveness along with their knowledge of the game. They have played a lot of the short form of the game as well so experience is a big thing but just pure competitiveness.“They both play the game hard once they are on the field and that’s one thing that I love doing as well so I think they go suited to each other very well and they have also played a lot of cricket with each other so I’m expecting the same thing when I play with them, to go out there, play the cricket hard and to be ultra-competitive.”This year the Stars will be coached by fellow Australian, Brad Hodge. Warner says he is looking forward to working with him in 2018.“I’ve done a little bit with Hodge, I haven’t been under him, but he is an exceptional person and a quality human being and an exceptional player. Opportunities came through at the wrong time of his career unfortunately but as a coach I have only heard good reports and I’m certainly looking forward to working under him that’s for sure.” Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedSammy looks to the future ahead of 2018 Hero CPLJune 12, 2018In “Sports”David Warner joins St Lucia Stars in first Hero CPLJune 16, 2018In “Sports”Player Draft for 2018 CPL set for March 1 in LondonFebruary 6, 2018In “latest news” read more

GPS satellites get a serious upgrade

Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only.center_img (PhysOrg.com) — GPS has become such an integral part of the new technology in our lives that we really do not give it much of a thought. It gets us to our destination without getting lost. It helps the ambulance to find us when we dial 911 on our cell phones. It lets you become the mayor of your gym for all those check in’s. GPS System Could Start Failing by Next Year When you get down to it, all of that technology is powered by a set of 24 satellites, and most of them have been up there for quite some time. The time has come for an upgrade. The newest version of a GPS satellite is called the GPS IIF and it is enhanced with more than one new upgrade.The GPS IIF is expected to double the accuracy of GPS, which is just as good of news for fans of Foursquare as it is for the FAA. One has to wonder exactly what doubling that accuracy really means. Well, currently GPS can estimate your location to an area of about 20 feet. When the next generation satellites are in place, this location will be narrowed down to an area of two to three feet, making pinpointing locations less like a range, and more like the spot you are standing on.This enhancement means that the next generation of GPS technology may be able to work with augmented reality technology indoors. Imagine having a virtual docent at the Met, or a guide to help you around your new college campus. The possibilities with this level of accuracy are intriguing.Currently, only one of these satellites, the GPS IIF SV-1, is in orbit and fully operational since August 2010. The second GPS IIF satellite, SV-2 is planned to launch this year. Eventually 10 other units will join them, and that is when you can expect to see the upgrades.last_img read more

Google reveals an undisclosed bug that left 500K Google accounts vulnerable in

first_imgYesterday, Google reported a bug discovery in one of the Google+ People APIs, which exposed user’s Google+ profile information such as name, email address, occupation, gender, and age. As per Google’s analysis, the profiles of up to 500,000 Google+ accounts were potentially affected. According to the Wall Street Journal report, “Google opted not to disclose the issue this past spring, in part because of fears that doing so would draw regulatory scrutiny and cause reputational damage.” Google discovered this bug as a part of its Project Strobe, which began in early 2018. Strobe was started with an aim to analyze third-party developer access in Google’s various services and Android. The company says it immediately patched this bug in March 2018 post learning of its existence. The bug provided outside developers potential access to private Google+ profile data between 2015 and March 2018, say internal investigators who discovered and fixed it. Using the API, users can grant access to their profile data, and the public profile information of their friends, to Google+ apps. However, with the bug, the apps also had an access to profile fields even when that data was listed as private and not public. Why were users kept in the dark? Any security breach pertaining to user data exposure should quickly be informed. However, as per the Wall Street Journal report, “A memo reviewed by the Journal prepared by Google’s legal and policy staff and shared with senior executives warned that disclosing the incident would likely trigger ‘immediate regulatory interest’ and invite comparisons to Facebook’s leak of user information to data firm Cambridge Analytica.” In response to the allegations raised on Google, Ben Smith, Vice President of Google’s Engineering team, in his recent blog post mentioned, “Every year, we send millions of notifications to users about privacy and security bugs and issues. Whenever user data may have been affected, we go beyond our legal requirements and apply several criteria focused on our users in determining whether to provide notice.” He also assured that Google’s Privacy & Data Protection Office reviewed the issue. He further added, “looking at the type of data involved, whether we could accurately identify the users to inform, whether there was any evidence of misuse, and whether there were any actions a developer or user could take in response. None of these thresholds were met in this instance.” Ben said that Google found no evidence that any developer was aware of this bug or abusing the API. He also assured that no profile data was misused. Will this delayed bug discovery announcement subject Google to GDPR? The European GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), which was enforced on 25 May 2018 requires companies to notify regulators of breaches within 72 hours, else the companies would be charged a maximum fine of 2% of world-wide revenue. Al Saikali, a lawyer with Shook, Hardy & Bacon LLP, said, “The information potentially leaked via Google’s API would constitute personal information under GDPR, but because the problem was discovered in March, it wouldn’t have been covered under the European regulation.” He further added, “Google could also face class-action lawsuits over its decision not to disclose the incident. The story here that the plaintiffs will tell is that Google knew something here and hid it. That by itself is enough to make the lawyers salivate.” The Aftermath: Google plans to discontinue Google+ for consumers Ben’s post mentions that over the years, Google+ has not achieved broad consumer or developer adoption, and has seen limited user interaction with apps. Talking about its consumer version, Google+ currently has low usage and engagement–90 percent of Google+ user sessions are less than five seconds. One of the priorities of Project Strobe was to closely review all the APIs associated with Google+ during which it also discovered the bug. Ben mentions, “The review did highlight the significant challenges in creating and maintaining a successful Google+ that meets consumers’ expectations.” Following these challenges and the very low usage of the consumer version of Google+, Google has decided to discontinue Google+ consumer version. This shutdown will take place over the course of the next 10 months, and will conclude in August, next year. However, Google plans to make Google+ available as an enterprise product for companies. Ben states, “We’ve decided to focus on our enterprise efforts and will be launching new features purpose-built for businesses. We will share more information in the coming days.” Other findings of Project Strobe and the actions taken Project Strobe provides a ‘root and branch’ review of third-party developer access to Google account and Android device data and of Google’s philosophy around apps’ data access. The main key finding of this project is the discovery of an exploitable bug built into a core API of Google+ for three years. The other key findings and the actions taken include: The need for having fine-grained control over the data shared with apps For this finding, Google plans to launch more granular Google Account permissions that will show up in individual dialog boxes. Here, instead of seeing all requested permissions in a single screen, apps will have to show the user each requested permission, one at a time, within its own dialog box. Know more about this on Google Developer Blog. Here’s a sample of how this process will look like: Source: Google blog Granting access to user’s Gmail via apps is done with certain use cases in mind For this, Google plans to limit the types of use cases that are permitted. The company is updating their User Data Policy for the consumer Gmail API to limit the apps that may seek permission to access consumer’s Gmail data. Only apps directly enhancing email functionality such as email clients, email backup services and productivity services (e.g., CRM and mail merge services), will be authorized to access this data. Also, these apps will need to agree to new rules for handling Gmail data and will be subject to security assessments. To know more about this action, read the Gmail Developer Blog. Granting SMS, Contacts and Phone permissions to Android apps are done with certain use cases in mind As an action to this finding, Google will limit the apps’ ability to receive call log and SMS permissions on Android devices. Hence, the contact interaction data will no longer be available via the Android Contacts API. Additionally, Google has also provided basic interaction data, for example, a messaging app could show you your most recent contacts. They also plan to remove access to contact interaction data from the Android Contacts API within the next few months.
