Star Brazilian footballer and UN ambassador dedicates final to hungry children

22 May 2007When the Brazilian midfielder Kaká takes to the field tomorrow night to battle for one of soccer’s most glittering prizes, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) ambassador will dedicate his participation to the plight of the world’s estimated 400 million hungry children. When the Brazilian midfielder Kaká takes to the field tomorrow night to battle for one of soccer’s most glittering prizes, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) ambassador will dedicate his participation to the plight of the world’s estimated 400 million hungry children.Kaká, 25, who will play for the Italian club AC Milan against Liverpool of the United Kingdom in the final of the Champions League in Athens, is the youngest Ambassador Against Hunger for the WFP.“As professional footballers, we are very privileged,” Kaká said after arriving in Athens to prepare for the match. “From time to time we have a chance to help others because of who we are and what we do. I want to use my position as a WFP Ambassador Against Hunger to make more people aware of the challenges of feeding hundreds of millions of hungry children in some of the poorest, least developed parts of the world.”WFP Executive Director Josette Sheeran said “it’s an incredible asset to have the world’s best player in the world’s favourite game on our team. Kaká has shown that he can combine the skills and dedication needed to be at the very top of the game with a commitment to a worthy humanitarian cause.”WFP gives food to an average of 90 million people, including 58 million children, each year across 80 countries as part of its programmes to assist the world’s most needy and malnourished.Other WFP Ambassadors Against Hunger include the Kenyan marathon world record holder Paul Tergat, the Brazilian footballer Ronaldinho and the Cape Verdean singer Cesária Évora. read more

UN refugee agency mourns staff killed in Algiers bomb attack

Drivers Karim Bentebal and Nabil Slimani, both Algerian nationals, were killed when a car bomb ripped the façade off the UNHCR office, the agency’s spokesperson Jennifer Pagonis told reporters in Geneva today, adding that one staff member was seriously wounded, while others sustained minor injuries.A support team from Geneva, where the agency is based, was urgently dispatched to the Algerian capital on Wednesday to assist staff and families of those killed in the attack, which also claimed the lives of at least nine other UN staff members. UNHCR has about 40 staff working in Algeria, 14 of whom were in Algiers at the time of the blast, Ms. Pagonis said. Most of the agency’s staff work in the Tindouf area some 2,000 kilometres south-west of the capital, assisting Sahrawi refugees from Western Sahara living in five refugee camps.The agency lost another staff member last week when driver Mahamat Mahamadou, a Chadian national, was shot dead in his vehicle in the southern part of the country. “It has been a particularly black time for UNHCR, with three drivers killed in the line of humanitarian duty in the space of a week,” said Ms. Pagonis. “UNHCR drivers are a vital part of our frontline humanitarian staff and widely recognised as crucial to our operations and understanding of the countries we work in. It is very troubling that three drivers have lost their lives in such violent circumstances within a week.” 14 December 2007Staff members of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) are mourning the loss of two colleagues, both Algerian nationals, killed in the deadly terror attack that struck the world body’s offices in Algiers on Tuesday. read more

Cambodia and UN antihunger agency launch threeyear meal programme

At a ceremony yesterday in the capital, Phnom Penh, WFP and the Cambodian Government launched the $64 million feeding programme which, starting next year, will target the neediest and least developed regions of the South-East Asian country.WFP Country Director Thomas Keusters called on international donors to step up their support of its programmes in Cambodia, warning that it was important to avoid a repeat of the funding crisis earlier this year that threatened to interrupt the supply of emergency food relief.“Food assistance has an immediate impact on beneficiaries and it is often also the catalyst that will allow other programmes to be successful,” Mr. Keusters said.“What good is it to build more schools and train more teachers if the children cannot take advantage of the improved facilities because they come to school hungry? What is the benefit of HIV/AIDS/TB medical support if the people cannot afford to buy the food that is needed for the medicine to be effective?”WFP has been operating in Cambodia since 1979, when it started supporting refugees and returnees, mainly along the Cambodian-Thai border. 14 December 2007The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has announced a new, three-year programme to provide meals to 1.8 million vulnerable Cambodians, including schoolchildren, tuberculosis patients and people affected by HIV/AIDS. read more

Canada threatens to impose tariffs on US foods furniture in meatlabelling dispute

VANCOUVER — Ottawa is warning it may impose tariffs on everything from orange juice to bread if the United States doesn’t change a meat-labelling policy that Canadian beef and pork industries say is costing them more than $1-billion a year.The federal government has released a long list of agriculture and other products that could be affected by Canada’s retaliation in an ongoing dispute over U.S. country-of-origin, meat-labelling rules.Canada’s list includes U.S. cattle, pigs, beef, pork, cheese, pasta, some fruits and vegetables, chocolate and maple syrup. There are also some non-food items such as office furniture, mattresses and some types of jewelry.“Free and unfettered trade is a two-way street,” Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz said at a news conference Friday. “These retaliatory measures, should we be forced to bring them into effect, will affect our producers and consumers on both sides of the border.“It is by no means our preferred course of action, but we will continue to stand with Canadian hog and cattle producers against mandatory country-of-origin labelling.”Ritz said if Canada follows through with the retaliatory measures, it would cost the U.S. money and jobs.He acknowledged such tariffs could also mean that Canadian consumers would have to pay more for the products.“There is a possibility of that,” he said. “We are hoping that this will bring enough pressure to the Americans to make the change before this ever has to be implemented.”Ritz called on the U.S. to respect a World Trade Organization ruling on meat labelling, which found the American system discriminates against foreign livestock.Daniel Acker/Bloomberg He said Canada must get authorization from the WTO before it may retaliate against the U.S. The earliest that such tariffs could be imposed would be between 18 and 24 months.The U.S. labelling policy, first implemented in 2008, cut Canadian cattle shipments to the U.S. by 50% within a year and cut the export of slaughter hogs by 58%.The system increases costs and makes it more difficult for U.S. companies to buy Canadian products.The U.S. recently announced it wants to make the rules even more onerous, requiring more detail on meat labels on the origins of beef, pork and chicken sold in American grocery stores.Labels would include such information as “born, raised and slaughtered in the United States” for American meat. Cuts of meat from other countries could carry labels such as “born in Canada, raised and slaughtered in the United States.”Producer groups in Canada praised the federal government for turning up the heat on Washington over the trade dispute.Dave Colverson, vice-president of the Canadian Cattleman’s Association, said it is unfortunate that Ottawa has to take this step, but added that producers have been suffering under this U.S. policy for too long.“Country-of-origin labelling discrimination has cost our cattle producers around $640-million in losses per year since being implemented in late 2008,” said Colverson, who ranches near Camrose, Alta.“Those costs are set to rise under the new amendment to an estimated $90 to $100 per head compared with the $25 to $40 per head hit we currently take.”Jurgen Preugschas of the Canada Pork Council, the organization that represents hog producers, also welcomed the threat of tariffs.He said the industry is being damaged by the U.S. policy.“We commissioned an analysis that shows the COOL (country-of-origin labelling) impact on the Canadian hog sector from lost exports alone is $500-million annually.”— By John Cotter in Edmonton read more

Railway restarted in BCs southern Interior 20 workers to head back on

Railway restarted in B.C.’s southern Interior; 20 workers to head back on Monday AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by The Canadian Press Posted Sep 26, 2013 10:57 pm MDT VERNON, B.C. – Teamsters Canada says railway service along a line in British Columbia’s southern Interior is about to resume thanks to a deal with Canadian National (TSX:CNR).Service was suspended on a so-called short line between Kelowna and Kamloops in the early summer after a receiver was appointed for Kelowna Pacific Railway.But the union says Canadian National has now agreed to bring up to standard the track that served about 16,000 rail cars annually.The union says the two weeks of negotiations were tough, but the company has agreed to a five-year deal that will see workers receive a 15-per-cent wage increase over the life of the contract.It says 20 employees will return to work on Monday, and more jobs could be on the horizon.The deal must still be ratified by union members. read more

Sudan top UN official demands cessation of violence and rape against civilians

According to her Office, despite restrictions on communications in Sudan, reports of serious human rights violations have emerged since the beginning of the month. These include reported rapes and gang rapes of protesters, women’s human rights defenders and women medical personnel working in hospitals near the sit-in perpetrated by the “Rapid Support Forces” or RSF – a paramilitary group run by the Sudanese Government, primarily composed of the Janjaweed, a party to the Darfur conflict – and other militias.“I demand the immediate and complete cessation of all violence against civilians including sexual violence,” stated Special Representative Patten, noting that the RSF have consistently been listed in the UN Secretary-General’s annual report on conflict-related sexual violence. “[They] should take effective measures to prevent and punish sexual violence in accordance with relevant Security Council resolutions, including resolution 2467,” she added. After the three-decade autocratic rule of President Omar al-Bashir ended in a military takeover in April, talks faltered in May between protesters and the ruling Transitional Military Council over a timetable for civilian rule.On 3 June, security forces and paramilitaries fired on pro-democracy protesters holding a sit-in outside army headquarters in the capital Khartoum, leaving a number of people dead and many more injured. Three days later, the African Union suspended the participation of Sudan in all its activities until the effective establishment of a civilian-led transitional authority.Pending verification of the alleged incidents by relevant UN bodies, Ms. Patten highlighted the fact that “the weakness of the rule of law and a general climate of impunity” is further compounding a highly-volatile context.“I urge the prompt investigation of all credible allegations of sexual violence and accountability for those responsible,” said the Special Representative, adding that she strongly supports the rapid deployment of a United Nations human rights monitoring team to examine the situation on the ground. She also called upon the international community, including members of the UN Security Council, to use “all possible diplomatic channels with leaders of Sudan to pave the way for a swift transition to a civilian administration and an end to all forms of violence and intimidation against civilians”.On Tuesday, the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), sounded the alarm over the killing and injuring of dozens of minors in the protests backlash. read more

Grad students set agenda for Niagara Social Justice Forum

Prof. Mary-Beth Raddon, seated third from left, with SJES graduate students involved in organizing the annual Niagara Social Justice Forum. Seated from left: Liz Mooney, Lisa Trumble-Pauze, Raddon, Blaire Hinsperger-Fox, Cheryl Thompson Standing from left: Lauren Quinn, Kate Paterson, Daniel Gallant, Ezgi Sarioglu, Kate MacDonald. Absent was Sarah Mann.Ten master’s students in Brock’s Social Justice and Equity Studies program are taking a lead role in planning the upcoming seventh annual Niagara Social Justice Forum.The experience is part of the 5P01 Graduate Seminar course.“I think it is important to give our students an opportunity to be involved in a significant event that builds relationships between Brock and the community,” says Professor Mary-Beth Raddon, Social Justice and Equity Studies (SJES) program director.The planning for the Saturday, Jan. 25 event started with class discussions over the fall term. Students shared their thoughts and ideas as part of a 19-member planning committee that also includes faculty, staff and community representatives. Their input into conversations around the committee table led to this year’s theme: Beyond Survival: Local and Global Activism in Times of Austerity.For several weeks now, the students have been busy carrying out organizational duties to prepare for the day-long event, which will include workshops, panel discussions, an information fair, and afternoon plenary. The forum wraps up with the screening of the film, They Were Promised the Sea, followed by a talk with the film’s director Kathy Wazawa.Last year, the event drew more than 250 people.SJES student Kate Paterson, who is helping to organize presenters and the day’s lineup, said this year’s theme is poignant. She hopes it will inspire participants to become more engaged in the community.“There will be a wide variety of different workshops for people to attend, which will be very thought-provoking and informative,” Paterson said. “The event will be focusing on a theme that is quite relevant today, particularly within the Niagara region. I think this event will be a great step in the right direction towards community activism and positive, meaningful change.”The Faculty of Graduate Studies is sponsoring the event with the help of the Office of the Provost and Vice-Presidnet Academic, Social Justice Research Institute, Student Life and Community Experience, Aboriginal Education Council, Council of Research in the Social Sciences, Faculty of Education, Faculty of Applied Health Science, Departments of Child and Youth Studies, Sociology and Women’s and Gender Studies, OPIRG-Brock and the Student Justice Centre.The forum is free and open to the public with online registration.Once the forum is over, the students have a little more work ahead of them. They are required to write a three- to four-page personal reflection on their experience. read more

PreOrder Osmo iPhone Base for OnTheGo Learning

first_imgStay on target Just in time for a new school year, the kid-friendly Osmo iPad accessory is now compatible with iPhones.Developed by a pair of ex-Googlers, the augmented reality platform uses a reflective mirror to turn the surface in front of your device screen into an interactive play area.“[Our team] has been working overdrive for months to make Osmo capable of running on an iPhone,” CEO Pramod Sharma told Digital Trends. “This is no small technical feat.”Rather than trying to shrink the iPad-sized clip-on mirror and stand to fit Apple’s famed smartphone, the company went back to the drawing board to engineer an entirely new product.It took three years, but Tangible Play finally unveiled the iPhone Base: a foldable frame that, when in use, looks like it’s in a perpetual state of upward-facing dog.Simply slip your handset (iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, or 7 Plus) into the brackets, snap that red mirror over the front camera, and dive in.Available now to pre-order, the $29 smartphone-friendly device is expected to ship to US customers in “early October”; it comes with the base, reflector, and cloth bag for storage—everything you need to play Newton and Masterpiece. Early-bird buyers also get 10 percent off three games of your choice.Additional games and game pieces can be picked up via Osmo and participating local retailers (including Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, Best Buy, Target, and Toys R Us).Osmo users are not required to repurchase any games you’ve already acquired; all nine titles—including Tangram, Monster, Numbers, and Masterpiece—work across either iDevice.The new iPhone Base is just one of a handful of expected updates. You spoke, and Tangible Play listened: Starting with last week’s reveal, the company will be sharing more news in a series of upcoming emails.“For the grand finale on Sept. 28, we’ll announce this year’s hottest holiday gift: something super fun that parents will actually feel great about giving,” a recent blog post said.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

An expert on human blind spots gives advice on how to think

first_imgYou might recognize Dunning’s name as half of a psychological phenomenon that feels highly relevant to the current political zeitgeist: the Dunning-Kruger effect. That’s where people of low ability — let’s say, those who fail to answer logic puzzles correctly — tend to unduly overestimate their abilities. Here are the classic findings from the original paper on the effect in graph form. The worst performers — those in the bottom and second quartile — grossly overestimated their ability (also note how the best performers underestimated it). Read the whole story: Vox David Dunning, a psychology professor at the University of Michigan, has devoted much of his career to studying the flaws in human thinking.

Firefox 55 Flash runs only on HTTP or HTTPS

first_imgFirefox 55: Flash runs only on HTTP or HTTPS by Martin Brinkmann on May 17, 2017 in Firefox – Last Update: May 22, 2018 – 25 commentsMozilla plans to implement a change in Firefox 55 that restricts plugins — read Adobe Flash — to run on HTTP or HTTPS only.Adobe Flash is the only NPAPI plugin that is still supported by release versions of the Firefox web browser. Previously supported plugins such as Silverlight or Java are no longer supported, and won’t be picked up by the web browser anymore.Flash is the only plugin left standing in Firefox. It is also still available for Google Chrome, Chromium-based browsers, and Microsoft Edge, but the technology used to implement Flash is different in those web browsers.Adobe Flash causes stability and security issues regularly in browsers that support it. If you check the latest Firefox crash reports for instance, you will notice that many top crashes are plugin-related.Security is another hot topic, as Flash is targeted quite often thanks to new security issues coming to light on a regular basis.Mozilla’s plan to run Flash only on HTTP or HTTPS sites blocks execution of Flash on any non-HTTP non-HTTPS protocol. This includes among others FTP and FILE. Flash content will be blocked completely in these instances. This means that users won’t get a “click to play” option or something similar, but just resources blocked from being loaded and executed by the Firefox web browser.Mozilla provides an explanation for the decision on the Firefox Site Compatibility website:Firefox 55 and later will prevent Flash content from being loaded from file, ftp or any other URL schemes except http and https. This change aims to improve security, because a different same-origin policy is applied to the file protocol, and loading Flash content from other minor protocols is usually not well-tested.Mozilla is also looking into extending the block to data: URIs.The change should not affect too many Firefox users and developers, but it will surely impact some. Mozilla implemented a new preference in Firefox that allows users to bypass the new restriction:Type about:config in the browser’s address bar and hit the Enter-key.Confirm that you will be careful if the warning prompt appears.Search for the preference plugins.http_https_only.Double-click on it.A value of True enables the blocking of Flash content on non-HTTP/HTTPS pages, while a value of False restores the previous handling of Flash so that it runs on any protocol. Mozilla suggests however that developers set up a local web server instead for Flash testing if that is the main use case. (via Sören)Now You: Do you still require Flash?
