UN civil service panel has crucial role in ensuring success of reform

“Executive Heads look to you for help in compensating staff at competitive rates, strengthening management, encouraging mobility around the UN system, and addressing problems such as the recruitment and retention of staff at difficult duty stations,” he told the 60th session of the International Civil Service Commission (ICSC) in Bangkok.”Executive Heads are also looking forward to the General Assembly’s forthcoming discussion on the report of the panel on strengthening the international civil service and the functioning of the Commission,” he said in a message delivered by the Executive Secretary of the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), noting the recent decision granting paternity leave.”As you know, this is a crucial year for the United Nations. The General Assembly will hold a Summit meeting in September, at which it is hoped that world leaders will enact far-reaching reforms. The issues that fall within the Commission’s purview are of central importance to that effort,” he added.”Just as I have been urging Member States to rise to the occasion, so do I call on you to meet this challenge and do your utmost to create for the staff of the United Nations system, at the more than 500 duty stations at which they serve the world’s people, the conditions they need to succeed.”The 15-member ICSC is an independent expert body established by the General Assembly, charged with regulating and coordinating the conditions of service of staff in the UN common system, while promoting and maintaining high standards in the international civil service.Its mandate covers all facets of employment conditions, but the type of action it is empowered to take in a specific area is regulated under its statute. On some matters such as establishment of daily subsistence allowance, cost-of-living element and hardship entitlements, it may take decisions itself.In other areas, it makes recommendations to the General Assembly which then acts as the legislator for the rest of the common system. Such matters include professional salary scales, the level of dependency allowances and education grant.On still other matters, the Commission makes recommendations to the executive heads of the organizations, in particular concerning human resources policy issues. read more

28 children taken to Ireland from UK in parental abduction cases

first_imgBRITISH GOVERNMENT FIGURES show there were 28 cases in the past year involving children who were abducted from a parent or guardian in the UK and taken to Ireland.Total figures for parental child abduction and international custody cases have been revealed by authorities in Britain as they seek to raise awareness of the problem ahead of an expected spike in cases after Christmas.They relate to cases whereby a child was taken out of the UK against the stipulation of a court order or against the will of one parent.The number of cases involving the Foreign Office has more than doubled in the last decade, from 272 in 2003-2004 to 580 in the past year. Cases involving children taken to Ireland accounted for the fourth largest number of such incidents; Pakistan accounted for 35 cases, followed by the US (32) and Poland (29).Contrary to the belief that fathers are most often to blame, mothers are responsible for 70 percent of the abductions, the Foreign Office said. Charities involved in child abduction said there was a spike in cases just after Christmas last year, and again in September following the summer holidays.Figures from the Department of Justice here show there were 83 cases of suspected abduction in in 2012 relating to attempts to bring children out of the country. The Department also dealt with 64 cases involving children entering the state.Speaking earlier this year upon the release of the Irish figures, Justice Minister Alan Shatter said that parental-child abductions remained a “worrying problem”.The UK Foreign Office has produced this video aimed at encouraging parents to consider the consequences of taking a child out of the country without permission…(Youtube: Foreign & Commonwealth Office)Read: 147 new cases of suspected child abductions reported in 2012Read: What is it like being a child in Ireland today?last_img read more

State scheme to regulate migrant returns at risk

first_imgA state-backed scheme for the voluntary repatriation of immigrants to their homelands aims to return 7,000 people to their countries of origin over the next year, Kathimerini has learned, though the head of the organization leading the initiative has expressed concerns that an unprecedented police crackdown on migrants could discourage many people from participating in the scheme.Following the repatriation of around 3,500 immigrants in the first six months of this year, the Public Order Ministry and the Greek office of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) are planning to double this figure over the next 11 months, returning 7,000 migrants home.The returns between January and August were funded with 5 million euros in European Union subsidies while another 10 million euros has been set aside for the next phase of voluntary repatriations, Kathimerini understands.Daniel Esdras, the director of IOM’s Greek branch, told Kathimerini that there was strong interest in the ministry-backed repatriation program with around 50 migrants submitting applications daily. But he expressed the fear that the police sweeps launched over the past few days, and subsequent deportations, may make would-be participants think again about signing on. “The more they are arrested and detained, the less likely they will be to cooperate with us for inclusion in the program,” Esdras said.Police detained around 6,000 migrants in an unprecedented crackdown in Athens over the weekend. Most were released but some 1,400 are to be kept in custody pending deportation.Public Order Minister Nikos Dendias defended the operation in comments to Skai television, saying that failure to curb an influx of immigrants could lead Greece to collapse. “Our social fabric is at risk of unravelling,” he said, noting that “the immigration problem is perhaps even greater than the financial one.”Describing the immigration problem as “a bomb at the foundations of the state and society,” he said he would resign if he were stopped from doing his job.

Comedy Central says Jon Stewart leaving The Daily Show

first_imgJon Stewart, who pushed political comedy into a new realm with a show that relayed news by parodying the news, will leave “The Daily Show” later this year after 16 years at the helm, Comedy Central announced Tuesday night.To a younger generation of viewers who stopped watching network news, his late-night “fake” news show — which particularly delighted in skewering politicians and the media —made him a trusted messenger to millions.Since its launch with Stewart as host — he took over the program in 1999 from Craig Kilborn — “The Daily Show” has routinely racked up awards. It won the outstanding variety series Emmy for 10 years in a row.Stewart, 52, who often emphasized that he is a comedian rather than a news anchor, truly made his mark during the 2000 presidential election with his “Indecision 2000” coverage of the George W. Bush and Al Gore recount in Florida. Afterward, everything on the show clicked, and Stewart emerged as the star of the comedy network — especially during the Bush administration, when the stentorian and seemingly exasperated host would take on the policies of Bush, Vice President Richard Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.Stewart broke the news of his departure to his audience during the show’s taping in New York. Almost immediately on social media, the tweets started from people who witnessed the announcement.last_img read more

DuckTales Remastered is everything you wanted it to be

first_imgAs amusing side-scrolling games from our past goes, it’s hard to do much better than DuckTales. Capcom’s best selling NES title wasn’t as popular as it probably deserved to be when it was first released, but Capcom and Disney saw fit to re-release this classic game and make it available on all three consoles. We took an evening and joined the cane wielding Scrooge McDuck on an HD remastered trip down memory lane.From the moment the game loaded on our Wii U and the classic 8-bit style music started blasting through the tiny speakers on the GamePad, you’re immediately transported back to the first time you play this game. Everything about the game has been updated to look great on any television, and Wii U owners will have the ability to play exclusively on the gamepad if you choose. The gameplay, the cut scenes, and the secret areas are completely intact. Even the post-mission victory dive in the money pit has been updated to look great on every screen.Choosing to play the game with a joystick instead of the D-Pad bears a slight complication in some of the levels that require Scrooge to jump from vine to vine or catch a chain at just the right moment. This game required that you press the up arrow on the D-Pad in order to grab chains and vines, and on a joystick this motion has to be both fast and precise or Scrooge will fall. It’s much easier to play these parts of the game with the D-Pad… if you haven’t already decided to play Ducktales this way out of nostalgia. Everything else about the gameplay translates to modern controllers with no problems, since the game really only had two other buttons.If you’re on a PS3 or Wii U, DuckTales Remastered is available starting today. Steam users will have access to the game on August 20, while Xbox Live users will be able to grab the game from the XBLA on September 11.If you’re interested in a collectors edition of the game, which is separate from theNES collectors tin, there will be a PS3 version available on August 20 that includes the download code for the game and a DuckTales pin.last_img read more

MovieBob Reviews INCREDIBLES 2

first_img MovieBob Reviews: ‘Shadow’MovieBob Reviews: ‘The Curse of La Llorona’ Stay on target Is Incredibles 2 good?I was disappointed.Oh no!!!Yeah… this one hurts.So it’s bad??I didn’t say that. It’s nowhere near as good as the original, definitely wasn’t worth 15 years of waiting and belongs on the low end of Pixar movies, but “bad” would be pushing it. It’s below average, disposable. Ironically, after such a long wait, it mostly feels like something that would’ve been thrown together quickly to get a sequel out as soon as possible right after the first one.Damn. Well, what’s it about at least?Picking up (literally) moments after the end of the original, Incredibles 2 once again centers on the titular family headed by Bob and Helen Parr aka “Mr. Incredible” and “Elastigirl,” a pair of semi-retired costumed-crimefighters in hiding living in a world where superheroes have been declared illegal. With the government program dedicated to keeping their existence hidden facing budget cuts, they’re approached by a brother/sister pair of telecom billionaires with a plan to bring “supers” out of the shadows by putting their money and public-relations muscle behind one and making a play for getting the bans lifted permanently. The nominal sequel conceit being that they’ve decided it’s Elastigirl they want as the initial centerpiece of the campaign – meaning that its Mom who takes the action-hero center-stage in this one while Mr. Incredible does the “tough guy flails comedically attempting to manage as a stay-at-home-Dad” B-story.So wait – with 15 years to write a sequel, they settled on “Mr. Mom, but with superheroes?”If only! The biggest overarching problem here is that there isn’t really a singular story at play as much as a dozen or so half-formed sequel ideas that keep getting brought up, sort-of explored and then left to sit: Mr. Incredible’s nascent emasculation anxiety seems like it’s going to be THE central conflict and… then just kind of isn’t, he just “gets over it” at a certain point. There’s a “Violet is dating” subplot that causes problems and creates situations and then… doesn’t really lead anywhere. Dash doesn’t even really GET a storyline to himself this time around. Frozone feels like even more of an afterthought than last time. There’s a lot of business about a “new generation” of Supers who get a big introduction scene and feel like they MIGHT become characters but then it’s clear they’re really just here to be part of a big battle sequence at the end.Okay, that’s a lot…There’s more! The main villain-mystery involving a new bad guy who can hypnotize people through TV signals gets a big enigmatic build, but the “shocking reveal” of who he is and what he’s all about is more of a “…that’s IT!?” Even the big leftover plot-point from the original – baby Jack-Jack’s powers – only gets “advanced” to the point of the other characters finding out and… that’s about it, it doesn’t end up meaning anything or taking the story anywhere particularly interesting other than creating an excuse for Edna Mode to get a two-scene cameo.So the issue is too much going on?Too much going on that doesn’t fit together into a cohesive narrative whole – the film is lacking a central theme or through-line. Yes, a baby with randomly-activated powers makes for funny slapstick and the sequences that play out as a result are some of the funniest in the film… but that’s all they are: Fun bits of animation only vaguely necessitated by a story that doesn’t meaningfully advance all that far from the first one until the last few moments – the narrative and “world” haven’t changed all that much and the characters are mostly re-learning lessons and repeating arcs they went through last time. It’s all so much jogging in place.The whole thing just feels kind of airless and uninspired – which is just… shocking, considering the pedigree. The original Incredibles was a huge, huge deal back in 2004. It was a literal bolt out of the blue that managed the impressive feat of being a bar-raiser for Pixar at the studio’s most untouchable moment. And it was an especially rare treat for superhero fans to see an original take on the genre that wrung fun comedy out of familiar tropes but also offered an engaging story that used those tropes in a thoughtful allegory about individuality, society, power and identity. And in many ways felt like a family-friendly, non-nihilistic take on Watchmen that many fans felt represented one of the best takes on the genre ever – animated or otherwise.What do you think happened?Well, a lot can go wrong – movies are complicated, and it’s honestly a miracle that anything gets made at all let alone getting made well. What I will say is that despite the original ending on a sort-of cliffhanger gag, writer/director Brad Bird maintained for well over a decade that he’d told the story he set out to tell and was in no hurry to rush out a sequel. But then his big auteur live-action bet-the-farm project, Tomorrowland, was a giant disaster a few years back and NOW suddenly hear we are – so that could be part of it. I wouldn’t suggest that Brad Bird and Pixar were being “dishonest” about believing in this story and having waited until they had one worth telling – what I can say is that it doesn’t FEEL like that… it feels like something that exists out of obligation.But it’s not a total loss?Not at all! The animation is excellent, the retro-aesthetic works as well as ever, Michael Giacchino’s score is consistently good and the staging of the fights and action scenes is endlessly inventive. It’s just too bad that there’s not a strong story or any real character depth to connect to it beyond whatever attachment you may or may not have maintained with the heroes from the first movie.It’s far from a disaster, but considering the pedigree and what a lot of people’s expectations were this is a genuinely shocking disappointment from Disney/Pixar.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Nvidia virtual reality will take another 20 years to fix

first_imgVirtual reality is mostly a lot of hype in 2016. You can argue that people have Oculus Rift in their possession and are enjoying VR experiences, but it’s not exactly ideal and Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has delivered a reality check during a press conference just before Computex kicks off.The VR shortcomings Huang lists are hard to argue with:Virtual reality headsets are too big and cumbersomeThe wires need to goThe resolution simply isn’t good enoughThe environments we experience aren’t “beautiful enough”The worlds we enter do not behave according to the laws of physicsHe could have gone further, pointing out we have no obvious way to get the rest of your body into the experience, or that realistic movement in VR requires other, even more cumbersome devices that cost a small fortune. It’s expensive, it’s very limited, and anyone embracing the tech today is basically a tester willing to pay for the privilege.You’d expect a company such as Nvidia to point these shortcomings out right before announcing they are working on their own solutions and products, but that’s not the case for Nvidia. Huang was asked directly what Nvidia is doing to find solutions, a question he didn’t answer beyond stating, “we have hundreds of projects in the company… most of them get thrown away.”Clearly virtual reality is going to require a lot of investments over the next two decades, which the Oculus team must have realized when they decided to be acquired by Facebook. The social network easily has the funding, and Zuckerberg seems to be capable of seeing out a 20-year vision. As for Nvidia, I’m sure they’ll be focused on being there when it all comes good, because VR headsets between now and 2036 are all going to need GPUs to help create those immersive worlds.last_img read more

Neighbors star Matt Wilson on playing a gay exstripper getting hit on

first_imgHandsome Neighbors actor Matt Wilson was forced to apologize last year after he referred to Aaron, the gay man he plays on the long-running soap, as ‘specifically designed […] to act straight and act normal.’ Got a news tip? Want to share your story? Email us . Neighbours actor who plays gay character: ‘He acts straight and acts normal’This film sums up the hidden meaning of Grindr messages everywhereNeighbours aired its first gay wedding and it was so beautifulRead the full article on Gaystarnews:  :https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/neighbors-star-matt-wilson-on-playing-a-gay-ex-stripper-getting-hit-on-by-guys-and-dealing-with-homophobes/ GAYSTARNEWS- eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Now we have this other proposal coming up. Fingers crossed we get another wedding out of it! What I’m hoping for is we have the first same-sex marriage on Australian TV since it became legal. It would be very special.Is your gay fanbase visible to you? I’m picturing you getting mobbed at Mardi Gras…Yeah, you get the odd squeeze here and there when you go out at night… One of my mates, every other Saturday, tries to get me to go to one of the gay clubs here [in Melbourne]. I’ve been a couple of times, but you just can’t hang out with your friends when you go there! It’s full on! But it’s a positive sign that the character is well-portrayed.Do fans ever confuse you for your character?All the time. I’ve been asked out for drinks about 100 times. I’m actually straight! Ryan Moloney, who plays Toadie, one of his friends at the weekend – and he doesn’t really watch the show – he thought my character was straight and I was gay. He was like ‘That guy, has he come out yet?!’ And Ryan was like ‘No…’ His friend was like: ‘That guy right there, he’s gay!’ It’s the character!On the flip side, have you ever encountered homophobia from members of the public for playing a gay character?Yes, you do. A lot of it comes via social media. But in the same way, I have that many loyal followers out there that as soon as somebody brings something up like that, they get shot down, by everybody. I don’t know if it’s the right way to do it or not.What do they say? Is it nonsense?Yeah, yeah, yeah. People just say: ‘I wish you were written out of the show’ or ‘there are too many gay scenes, too many kissing scenes…’ You’re like: ‘Get real!’ It’s actually quite embarrassing for them. They’re coming out on a public platform saying these things and every single time they get shut down big.Obviously there’s a huge amount of Neighbors alumni who have gone on to star in blockbuster films. Have you met any of them?I met Ben Mendelson once, who just [appeared] in the Stephen Spielberg movie Ready Player One. He’s one of my favorite actors. Travis Burns, who played my younger brother and lives in LA at the moment, met up with Margot Robbie the other day, which would’ve been pretty exciting!Neighbours airs Monday-Friday 1.45pm and 5.30pm in the UK on Channel 5Now that Australia has same-sex marriage, will this soap have a gay wedding? After making the comments on The Wright Stuff, the 29-year-old star admitted: ‘My choice of words wasn’t right and apologies if it comes across as offensive.’Almost one year on, as Matt gears up for Aaron’s double engagement with on-screen boyfriend David (played by Takaya Honda), screened tonight, it seems he knows his way around his character a lot better.When we ask him to describe Aaron for newcomers to Neighbors, he doesn’t even focus on Aaron’s sexuality, but his personality.‘He’s a peacekeeper’‘Aaron’s an extrovert, a showman,’ he tells us with an affectionate laugh, in a sunny Aussie lilt.‘He’s also a peacekeeper,’ he adds. ‘In any altercation he’s the one to step in and make it better for everyone. He’s happiest when everybody else is happy.’Here, we speak with Matt about Australian marriage equality, people who confuse him for Aaron and the viewers who think he should be written out of the show…For our readers who haven’t seen Neighbors, tell us about Aaron…Aaron came onto the show as a male stripper. He hurt his ankle once and quit that. It might have something to do with the G-rating on the TV show!Were you nervous about that being his job when you first started?No, I took it head first. I kind of enjoyed it! I tried my best to dance, but I’m not very good at that.Is he politically-minded?He’s not really an activist. I think he enjoys the movement and what it stands for. But when you compare him to Paige on the show, who’s protested and been to rallies, Aaron hasn’t really done that. But he stands for [LGBTI rights], and what a time to in Australia as well!Had you ever played a gay character before?I had once in a little short film for a mate of mine. But it wasn’t anywhere near as big as this.With the introduction of marriage equality in Australia, do you hope to see a storyline along those lines in the future?Aaron and David have a proposal scene coming up. David previously proposed to Aaron – we filmed this last year. It aired the day before same-sex marriage became legal in Australia. The government, by fluke, decided that was the day it would happen, and it was the day after we went to air. That was really special. It was so relevant and everyone got behind it. Everyone got a glimpse into what was happening. Photos: Courtesy of Channel 5 Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading…last_img read more

Newlook Costa Rica football team headed in right direction 3 thoughts from

first_imgA collective sigh of relief emanated from the stands of San José’s National Stadium when the Costa Rica national men’s team, known as “La Sele,” netted its first win in 11 months on Tuesday. Despite new head coachÓscar Ramírez’s mere three weeks on the job, the man they call “Macho” already has Costa Rica football trending upwards.The 1-0 win over Uruguay reaffirmed the optimism that was generated from a competitive, 0-1 loss to world power Brazil on Saturday. And though all of La Sele’s problems are not suddenly solved, Ramírez said he’s satisfied with how quickly his team has been able to adapt to his style of play.“Understanding that we faced two world champions in three days makes me much more content with where we’re at,” he said.Following two more warm-ups against South Africa and the United States next month, La Sele will begin World Cup qualifying play, starting with Haiti on Nov. 13. Besides the Haitians, Costa Rica’s regional qualifying group includes Jamaica and Panama.In light of Ramírez’s successful debut this past week, here are three thoughts as to why Costa Rica seems to be on the right path as it heads towards the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Óscar Ramírez has already put his footprint on a defense that looks to be vastly improved in a few weeks time. Jeff Zevelansky/AFPDefense and ball control are priorities againComing into his current job, Ramírez’s resume made it very clear that the coach stresses great defense everywhere he goes. Under former head coach Paulo Wanchope, Costa Rica was usually able to find rhythm on offense but never had consistent answers on defense and in the midfield.In his first two games, “Macho” implemented a five-man backline, anchored by Cristian Gamboa on the right-end and solidified by Giancarlo González in the middle. Against the Brazilians, early miscues were quickly corrected to shut down one of international football’s most feared attacks. Against Uruguay at home, Ramírez’s squad looked even more in control as it quickly put out any offensive sparks from the Uruguayans and was able to bottle up possession. With sharp passing and improved communication all over the field, Ramírez’s strategy emphasizing possession came alive in a beautiful way on Tuesday night.It’s not exactly as refined as the famous “Tiki-taka” style that recently guided Spain’s national team through its most decorated era, but it’s a dependable style that should lead Costa Rica to many more victories under Ramírez. Leading up to the friendlies, González told reporters that Ramírez has demanded more effort from the defense and the midfield, putting all the focus on ball control.“With him, even the tiniest of details are covered because he knows that’s how we’re going to win,” he said. “We’re all getting used to his style of play, which basically calls for a lot of ball possession.”Costa Rica’s defense may not yet be back at the level it was playing at in the 2014 World Cup, where it completely shut down some of the game’s best attackers, but the early returns from Ramírez’s first two games are promising.https://vine.co/v/etpZQ1JW9AKLa Sele’s stars are in position to make playsJust because more attention is being placed on the defense doesn’t mean Costa Rica is going to be boring to watch. When the team’s two most potent offensive threats – Joel Campbell and Bryan Ruíz – combined to score the lone-goal against Uruguay on Tuesday, it was clear that La Sele’s playmakers are still going to have plenty of opportunities to dazzle.Campbell, in particular, stuck out by proving that he remains Ramírez’s top option at striker. The 23-year-old Arsenal forward is often criticized for his streaky play, but when he’s at his best, Campbell is a master creator who requires total attention from opposing defenses. An expert dribbler and reliable passer, he has enough tools to swing a game’s outcome by himself.The other star who has shined early on in Ramírez’s new system is midfielder Celso Borges. Against Brazil and Uruguay, the veteran was again the engine that created a stable rhythm for Costa Rica’s offense. The 27-year-old Borges not only flashed his ability to facilitate, he also had a couple of goal-scoring opportunities in this week’s friendlies.Coupled with budding young talents like Johan Venegas and Ronald Matarrita, the skill level on this selection may be higher than ever. ¡Ganamos! #LaSele 1, Uruguay 0 #CRCURU #AhoraNosTocóEnCasa pic.twitter.com/xS7hiFWbL8— FEDEFUTBOL (@FEDEFUTBOL_CR) September 9, 2015 Related posts:Costa Rica’s La Sele throttles Jamaica 3-0 Costa Rica seeking revenge against the United States Costa Rica humiliates the United States 4-0 in World Cup qualifier Costa Rican Men’s National Team hopes to make history again in Mexicocenter_img Full strength still to comeAs La Sele’s top names begin to stand out again, its worth noting that Costa Rica’s best player hasn’t suited up in the red and blue since June. Even without Keylor Navas, the goal remains in good gloves with capable replacements Esteban Alvarado and Patrick Pemberton. But the eventual reinsertion of the Real Madrid star into the starting goalkeeper spot will only better Ramírez’s defense, giving the backfield some room for error in front of one of the world’s best stoppers.On the defensive end, Costa Rica has also been without Bryan Oviedo as the Everton back continues to battle injuries. However, Oviedo’s latest setback was only supposed to keep him out for a matter of weeks, meaning he should be plugged into the starting lineup for the Oct. 8 home friendly against South Africa. His addition, at the very least, gives “Macho” another talented option on the backline and could make for a shutdown unit alongside Gamboa and González.On top of the two missing pieces on defense, coach Ramírez also plans to recover a nice tool for his offense when David Ramírez returns from his two-game suspension. The young Saprissa striker was the most consistent threat during the Wanchope era, and should provide even more firepower next to Campbell and Ruíz. Facebook Commentslast_img read more
