Locusts could infest Red Sea and Gulf of Aden coastal areas this

23 February 2007Locust numbers have continued to increase along the northern coast of Eritrea and adjacent coastal areas of Sudan and other Red Sea and Gulf of Aden countries could face important infestations of the crop-devouring insects this winter due to unusually good rains and favourable ecological conditions, the United Nations warned today. “Vigilance is critical, particularly on the Red Sea coastal plains where a Desert Locust outbreak developed in Eritrea in December,” the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said, raising the alert level in the Red Sea area to “caution.” “When vegetation begins to dry out, these locusts may form hopper bands and swarms that could move to neighbouring countries,” FAO expert Keith Cressman added. Small-scale breeding is in progress in coastal areas of Saudi Arabia and Yemen, and FAO has received reports of locust concentrations on the northwest coast of Somalia. In Eritrea and Sudan a second generation of breeding is underway that could cause locusts to rapidly increase in number. The agency is closely monitoring the situation as continuing rains could lead to further deterioration and greater threat to the countries around the Red Sea in April/May. Control operations against locusts are continuing on the Eritrean coast where Eritrean ground teams have treated more than 15,000 hectares of hoppers and adults that were forming small groups. Most of the control has been carried out in millet crops on the coast near Shelshela and Sheib. The governments of Sudan and Yemen have mobilized additional locust teams to monitor their coastal plains and control any infestations that may endanger crops. A spray aircraft has been deployed on standby on the Sudanese coast. The FAO recommends the use of bio-pesticides derived from natural materials such as animals, plants, bacteria, and certain minerals. They help to fight pests while minimizing risks to human health and the environment. The potential of the biopesticide Green Muscle® as a method to combat Desert Locust has been demonstrated in several field trials in Africa and the FAO will conduct field trials on the Red Sea coastal plains in Sudan in collaboration with the national Locust Control Centre and the international research institution, ICIPE, in the next month. read more

Hard and soft threats must be tackled Fréchette tells civil society leaders

Speaking in New York to the Peace and Security Funders Group, which represents civil society organizations from around the world, Ms. Fréchette said the war in Iraq had undermined international consensus behind a vision for peace and security.She said that while some countries saw terrorism, weapons of mass destruction and criminal networks as the biggest threats to security – the so-called “hard threats” – most saw civil wars, diseases such as AIDS, poverty and environmental degradation as the key problems.”Our central challenge is to ensure we have the rules, instruments and institutions to deal with all these threats and issues – how to deal with the hard threats without neglecting the soft threats. After all, they are closely linked,” she said.Ms. Fréchette reminded the civil society leaders that a panel is expected to report early next year on the nature and scope of participation by civil society groups with the UN.She said that civil society groups would continue to play an important role in the international debate over how peace and security can best be achieved. read more

Bilateral deportation agreements undermine international human rights law – UN expert

Manfred Nowak, the UN Commission on Human Rights Special Rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, voiced concern that some countries are using diplomatic assurances and memoranda of understanding to circumvent the absolute prohibition of refoulement – or forcible return – to countries where there is a risk of torture or ill-treatment.He stressed that these bilateral agreements run counter to the Convention against Torture and undermine the multilateral protection and monitoring system provided by UN treaty bodies. “The fact that diplomatic assurances are requested from other countries is already an indicator of the systematic practice of torture in the requested States” he explained. “In a way they are saying that those few people should be monitored but we are not taking up the issue of systematic practice of torture in this very country.”The Special Rapporteur also discussed the issue of corporal punishment, stating it is illegal in all circumstances under international human rights law. He called on all governments that still practice corporal punishment to abolish this practice without further delay.”Today we can say that all forms of corporal punishment constitute a violation of the absolute prohibition of torture, cruel and inhumane and degrading treatment and punishment,” he declared. read more

Tanzania banks on gemstones Nigeria means business

first_imgLast week was a busy week one in mining across the African continent, Mining Indaba reports. In Tanzania, the government is going all out to increase the mining sector’s contribution to the economy, but not all moves appear to be well-informed. Recent calls by the country’s president for more gold smelters to be built has been ascribed to a lack of understanding of how the industry works, by Ami Mpungwe, Chairman of Tanzania’s Chamber of Energy and Minerals. Apparently, more than 99% of gold mined in Tanzania is already processed there. Attention has also been drawn to new regulations in the country, which make it mandatory for companies holding special mining licences to offload at least 30% of their shares at the Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange and now government is reportedly looking to include tanzanite gemstones as part of its national foreign reserves at Tanzania’s central bank.On the upside, the Zambian government and the mining industry have agreed to resolve the case of electricity tariffs out of court. Then there is also Nigeria, which plans to review the royalty rates to reflect current commodity prices and also review mineral licensing fees to discourage mineral title speculation. In addition, the Nigerian ministry of Mines and Solid Minerals Development has revoked non-performing mineral titles to make the area financially and technically viable for investors and the country’s proposed N30 billion intervention fund for Solid Minerals development has been approved.last_img read more

The End is Nigh is A More Brainy Brutal Platformer

first_img When I reviewed Gonner on Nintendo Switch a few months ago I called it “Tim Burton’s Super Meat Boy.” And while I stand by that comparison, I may have spoken a little too soon. The End is Nigh is also a super tight and tough 2D platformer with a creepy cute cartoon art style. But it was also co-developed by Edmund McMillen (along with Tyler Glaiel), one of the actual creators of Super Meat Boy. Regardless of whether or not it deserves my dumb analogy, The End is Nigh adds a cool cerebral edge to breakneck brutal platforming.If Super Meat Boy was a cheery snarky cartoon for the real-life Bart Simpsons of the world, The End is Nigh goes fully into the M-rated teenage nihilism end of the Newgrounds spectrum. You play as a tumorous little blob named Ash (voiced by Red Letter Media’s Rich Evans of all hilarious people) scouring his blighted post-apocalyptic world for friends and video game cartridges to entertain himself.The different environments feel distinct, from oceans of acid urine to harsh deserts. But they are united by a magnificently miserable monochrome art style, like all the joy has been sucked away along with the color. It’s great for anyone who wishes Limbo’s haunting silhouettes were more unapologetically vulgar. In a way, it feels like the missing link between Super Meat Boy and McMillen’s other smash scatalogical hit The Binding of Isaac.AdChoices广告That applies to the gameplay as well. Meat Boy would constantly die because he, and the player, loved flinging himself at danger to succeed, and then always trying again when he failed. It was a mark of pride to see all of your previous deaths play out at once before a victory. There’s a slight philosophical shift in The End is Nigh. Here you constantly die because that’s just the nature of your awful world. You should expect it, you shouldn’t be afraid of it, but maybe you should think a little more about how to avoid it.The End is Nigh gives you pitch-perfect precise platforming physics and fluid controls, so it expects you to use them. Angling yourself just the right amount in the air can mean the difference between a safe landing and death by spikes. Unlike Meat Boy, you can’t scale walls forever by jumping. Instead, you have to look out for carefully placed hooks to hold onto. It’s just one way the gameplay is more about methodically observing patterns and solving the jump puzzles rather than winning through sheer skillful acrobatics. Hop on enemy heads to cross a chasm. Wait in the poison cloud for just the right amount of time. Navigate towers as they collapse.The game even features some light exploratory backtracking. Levels are largely single-screen obstacle courses but they all exist in a linear interconnected world. And if you go out through the entrance of one level you appear at the end of the previous level. Working your way backwards like this is the only way to grab some especially tricky collectibles.Unfortunately, there’s no way to individually select levels. You have to go through the entire world. And if you warp back to an earlier world without finishing the one you started, you have to tediously start back at the beginning. Levels are short and fun enough to replay, especially on the go with Nintendo Switch, but this is a very frustrating choice/oversight for a game this challenging.And honestly, as deviously clever and mechanically satisfying as The End is Nigh can be, it just made me want to go back and revisit the raw platforming thrills of Super Meat Boy. It made me wish the Switch version of that game, or its upcoming sequel, was out right now.

Recess monitor fired for violating boundary invasion policy

first_imgBattle Ground Public Schools fired a playground monitor after he was seen on a security camera grabbing girls around the waist and chest.Brian Higgins, a part-time recess monitor at Pleasant Valley Primary School, was fired in May after violating the district’s boundary invasion policy. Records obtained by The Columbian show Higgins was placed on paid administrative leave on March 29 stemming from the incident, then fired on May 28. The annual salary for his part-time job was about $16,700, according to data from the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. Higgins was employed with the school district for four years.District staff met with Higgins on March 29 to review security footage showing him interacting with fourth-grade female students on the Pleasant Valley playground. Video footage showed Higgins touching students’ shoulders and bodies, and at one point wrapping his arms around a student from behind.Higgins said he was playing with students, but district staff told him that touching students is inappropriate and a potential liability to the school district. District human resources staff further contacted Higgins on six separate occasions, but were unable to set up additional appointments with him.The school board approved the termination of his employment on May 28.Records suggest this wasn’t the first time Higgins inappropriately intruded on a child’s personal space. On June 3, 2018, Craig Pearson, who at the time was an administrative intern at Pleasant Valley, wrote to Higgins describing three different instances during an afternoon recess where “physical space and boundaries were intruded upon in a manner that was beyond your professional duties.”The letter does not specify what that entailed, but directed Higgins not to initiate physical contact with students.“Singling out a particular student or students for personal attention beyond the professional staff-student relationship shows lack of good judgment and common sense,” Pearson wrote, warning that further incidents could lead to his termination.The Columbian attempted to call multiple numbers associated with Higgins. All went to voicemail, and none were returned.last_img read more

Agency OKs preparation for oil terminal trial

first_imgThe state agency that reviews major energy projects agreed Tuesday to launch preliminary meetings that will help set the stage for a courtlike trial of a proposal to build the nation’s largest oil-by-rail terminal at the Port of Vancouver.The Washington State Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council voted unanimously to kick off preparations for the trial of the proposal by Tesoro Corp. and Savage Companies to receive an average of 360,000 barrels of crude per day at the port. Those legal preparations could include identifying which parties will intervene, which expert witnesses will provide testimony and when site visits will be held.It’s unclear when those and other pretrial matters will be settled. However, the evaluation council’s administrative law judge, Cassandra Noble, could issue an order that begins the oil terminal’s initial legal proceedings by the end of this month. Tuesday’s action came despite concerns raised by project opponents that the council was rushing the proposal’s legal and environmental review. They opposed launching any legal proceedings until the draft analysis of the oil terminal’s environmental impacts is released for public review and comment.Understanding what’s in the draft analysis, expected to be released in May, would enable the parties involved to prepare for the trial, opponents argued. Otherwise, the value of any pretrial hearings would be limited, they say.last_img read more

Mystery of life after death Man claims to have seen Good Fairy

first_imgPixabayScience considers death as the end of everything, but spiritualists have a different point of view, and they believe that humans will start their eternal journey after their final breath. Religious books including the Bible, Quran and Gita also claim the same, and it has made many people believe that life after death is a reality. Now, a man named Greg has sensationally claimed to have seen ‘Good Fairy’ during a near-death experience (NDE).Greg made these remarks on an NDE testimonial shared on the NDERF (Near Death Experience Research Foundation) website. As per Greg, he climbed a beautiful stairway made of translucent pink marble, and he was guided by a compassionate female whom he calls the ‘Good Fairy’.”At about age 3, I remembered walking up a beautiful stairway made of translucent pink marble. I was wearing those child pajamas with the plastic foot pads and elastic around the ankles, which I can still ‘feel.’ I was walking up a beautiful, curved stairway with a compassionate and caring female who reminded me of the ‘Good Fairy’ to my child’s mind. She wore a light blue, shimmering and diaphanous gown with a belt around the waist. She didn’t have wings, was not earthly, and was very kind. I remember feeling secure around her although no words were spoken,” wrote Greg on his NDE testimonial.After some time, Greg apparently saw another female whom he believes to be an angel. The NDE victim also claims that he had talked to this angel for a very brief time.”We slowly ascended to a landing where another female angel/good fairy sat waiting. We paused, and this female ‘spoke’ to me. Even at such a young age, I sensed she was more ‘important.’ It was a brief exchange,” added Greg.This is not the first time that a person is sharing mind-blowing near-death experiences that suggest the possibility of life after death. A few days back, Eva, a woman from the United Kingdom, claimed that she felt euphoria during a near-death experience. The woman also revealed that the experience she felt was really pleasant.Even though spiritualists consider these experiences a solid proof of an afterlife, experts have dismissed these claims and they reveal that it is the survival technique of the human brain during life-threatening events which cause these visual hallucinations.last_img read more

the nation Still Kim Jong Un North Korea’s leader is embracing tourism following a six-month ban on any foreign visitors last year (for fear they might carry the Ebola virus) North Korea welcomed 100000 visitors in 2014 mostly from neighboring China and officials say they want 1 million tourists by 2017 and 2 million by 2020 Western travelers who have made the trip say visiting North Korea feels bizarre but not necessarily treacherous “The only way DPRK tourism is not safe in my opinion is for tourists who plan on participating in any civil disobedience” says Ryan Romanchuk who visited North Korea from the US in 2011 in an interview conducted via Facebook “I could see someone trying to sneak a picture of a military checkpoint or try to take a picture of Koreans walking along the roads outside of Pyongyang If you’re caught with one of those pictures it’s literally a foreign agent committing espionage against the DPRK” he says “There are no second chances when it comes to rule breaking” The rules are articulated very clearly and tour groups are briefed before they leave so they know exactly what to expect several travelers to North Korea told TIME Tour groups are also told beforehand that many Westerners have no diplomatic recourse should something go wrong especially if you’re an American Earl Baron who visited North Korea from the US with Koryo Tours in 2013 and documented his travel on his blog Wandering Earl says the trip was very structured and he was almost always accompanied by a guide (although he did have a few moments of freedom) “I didn’t feel any confusion about what was allowed and what wasn’t” he said in an email “Between the pre-trip briefing in Beijing the local guides informing us of what we could and couldn’t do and the Koryo representative making sure we understood it all seemed quite clear to me” “I also noticed that our three local guides were keeping close eyes on us in general” he added “They would ask us questions from time to time that seemed to indicate they were trying to make sure we weren’t there for any illegal activities that they would certainly notice any strange behavior or breaking of any rules if it were to happen” Becki Enright who went to North Korea from the UK in 2012 also with Koryo said she was careful while traveling but did not feel overly concerned about her safety While the tour company was clear about what was off-limits to photograph she felt that if she accidentally took a wrong photo it would have been treated as “an innocent thing” and authorities would have simply asked her to delete it She recalls a history teacher on her tour who told the guides that their narrative of North Korean supremacy was historically inaccurate “He said This is a lie and you know its a lie And the tour company said If you do this again you have to leave’” she recalled but she said that the man was not punished further Enright a travel writer who wrote about her trip on her blog Borders of Adventure said she was constantly aware that breaking the rules not only meant possible punishment for her but also threatened the livelihood of her North Korean guides “You cant say to your guides Hey did you know that during the war the North bombed the South and not the other way around” she said “You know the life theyre living and you dont want to put them in a gulag either” Telling her North Korean guides the truth about the rest of the world she said would have put them in immense danger if she were overheard Even inside her hotel room Enright said she chose her words carefully “You dont know what is in the room” she said speculating on the possibility that hotel rooms might be bugged “Its just such a different mind-set” Write to Charlotte Alter at charlottealter@timecomThe artist SZA born Solána Rowe and raised in New Jersey didn’t always plan to be a singer And for awhile it looked like her breakthrough debut album Ctrl might be lost in production But sometimes fate works in mysterious ways even for a self-described control freak like SZA Ctrl released in June has been sitting comfortably at (or near) the top of the R&B charts It garnered her a widely-lauded solo performance at the BET Awards and a passionate new fan base After collaborating with prominent rappers like Kendrick Lamar and Travis Scott the once hesitant artist is now finding her place in the music industry even though after months spent sleeping on a futon she still hasn’t furnished her own apartment SZA’s languid R&B offers a wealth of contradictions: self-assured in delivery but insecure in emotion casual in tone but cutting in content “Why is it so hard to accept the party is over” she asks on “Drew Barrymore:” “You came with your new friends/ And her mom jeans and her new Benz/ And she’s perfect and I hate it oh so glad you made it” It’s a love-hate story equal parts twisted and relatable In the wake of her album’s success SZA talked to TIME about the process of self-discovery in making Ctrl the impact of working with icons like Rihanna (“We talk all the time”) and Drew Barrymore (“She just radiates this air of confidence”) and how she plans to approach her music moving forward TIME: This album has been a long time coming for you What was the process like of bringing it to life SZA: This is just my prerequisite honestly This is just my entry chord into even understanding how to write What were you working on before How is this different I was touching music from a standpoint of I wondered what I sounded like I didnt know what my sound was I didnt know my style I didnt know how I would process music or information I didnt know about myself so I took the time to learn What about your background has had an impact on your music Were your parents into it your friends or was it an independent process of discovery for you Music kind of came out of nowhere for everybody My parents just wanted me to be free They thought I would be dancing not necessarily music So I think everyone was very unsure what this hobby was about Did you feel like you had to prove something to people who didnt believe in you from the beginning Maybe I think at first I was operating off of pure revenge Because I was tired of I dont know people thought I was so wack I was like what What do you mean by that People just did not think highly of me at all People thought maybe I was a product of nepotism or a very lucky situation or like some f-cking weird night I was sharing a futon six months ago There was nothing lucky or fortuitous or nepotistic about it People see you come out of the Staples Center with Kendrick on a set and they think “Youre not living on the floor” But thats not true Just because you know Kendrick Lamar and you also sing and youre also signed to a similar label it literally doesnt mean anything for you So I just wanted to establish myself as my own person What was the turning point where things started becoming clearer for you I dont think it ever became clear When this album came out I cried I screamed and I cried I was so embarrassed; I thought no one would like it The response has been overwhelmingly positive especially from women and young women of color who connect with the themes and personal lyrics of your songs Did you set out to write an album that’s personal Where did it come from I mean no I really dont even think it was that personal I think it was pretty surface level for what I could do I think this was me being afraid to go there in a lot of ways Just me dipping my toe in Now I know that people dont mind I can really not be afraid to become a better writer to get my song structure together to make it work You include snippets of your mom’s voice and your grandma giving you advice Why I think I got my obsession with control from her [my mom] My granny is salty and sweet… [she] is much more like me while my mother is just like the sweetest most pure Ive never heard her gossip about a single person in my entire life ever Shes an eternal optimist And my granny shes just like “f-ck it you might as well do what you want” Why “Drew Barrymore” She also cameoed in your music video for the song; how did that come together I love Drew Barrymore Shes quirky shes different When she came out there was nobody like her She just radiates this air of confidence and also acceptance of her quirks Its very inspiring I always think of Ivy and Never Been Kissed and all those really ‘90s movies When I heard those chords [for the song] the boys made it from scratch I was like sh-t Dum dum dun dum dum dun I was like “God this is so sad it sounds like Freddie Prinze Jr is about to pop out” What has changed for you now What do you want to do next I want to learn the fine line between taking it seriously and taking it not too seriously I think very great people take it seriously but not too seriously And I think I take it so seriously that I was like I dont even want to do this if I dont excel I didnt even want to put my album out unless people really liked it I wanted to quit because I was like no ones going to like this f-cking album Now I just feel like OK I want to be here I understand how to be here Well I dont understand how to be here but I understand how to tap into a portion of myself while Im here So I might as well tap into that source in myself until I dont have anything else to tap and then Ill do something else How does faith impact your music [SZA’s stage name is an acronym derived from the Supreme Alphabet representing words for self-knowledge enlightenment and God] I think faith in something better or more powerful or with more knowledge and with divine order helps me trust the process Even when I dont trust the process very well because Im very skittish it forces me to trust the process Its very weird that God has designed the whole situation for me If you left it to me this would not be going this way I would have never put an album out Who knows You know whats crazy Im so tired of talking about myself And I think that music now is a place where I can speak and then not speak So I think on my next album Ill just say a lot more
