UNAfrican Union police begin patrols in North Darfur

“The safety of the citizens of Darfur is a priority for UNAMID,” said UNAMID Police Commissioner Michael Fryer, in announcing activities in the domain of the rebel group, which is a faction of the Sudan Liberation Army (SLA). “But curbing crime also involves the full cooperation of the entire community,” he added, explaining that the patrols aimed to strengthen cooperation and trust between the UN and the population and local police. Fighting between rebels, the Government and allied militias has caused the deaths of over 200,000 and the displacement of more than two million people in Darfur over the past five years.There are currently over 1,600 police officers, including 252 female officers, from 32 different countries serving with UNAMID, which took over from an African Union force at the beginning of the year.The UN refugee agency, meanwhile, says it is continuing to provide emergency aid to small groups of Sudanese refugees from West Darfur who are still arriving on a daily basis in eastern Chad, fleeing a wave of aerial and ground attacks that began on 8 February.Over the weekend, teams from the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) distributed emergency kits to some of the refugees in the border area, which now number some 13,000. The kits include blankets, as most of the new arrivals have been sheltering under trees for the past three weeks. 4 March 2008Police units of the new United Nations-African Union Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) conducted their first “confidence-building” patrols in areas controlled by the Minni Minawi-led rebel group in the violence-torn region of Sudan, the mission said today. read more

Tesla Motors suing BBCs Top Gear for libel

first_imgIf you were watching BBC’s Top Gear about three years ago, you may remember the unfortunate episode where the crew tested the Tesla Roadster. The segment showed the Roadster running out of its electric charge during a race against the gas-powered Lotus Elite, which the Roadster is based on.Though just a startup company at the time when the show aired in 2008, Tesla Motors is now a big name, and the company is not happy with the results of Top Gear’s episode. Tesla Motors is suing BBC for allegedly falsely representing the Roadster’s performance.AdChoices广告After 55 miles, the first car’s battery ran out, and another car’s motor overheated. Then, there were problems with the brakes with the first car. This video is all over the Internet and has been for the past few years, thus Tesla’s libel suit.Tesla’s VP of Communication Ricardo Reyes wrote in a blog post on the official Tesla blog that Tesla was “good sports” when the show ran back in 2008 while Tesla was still a young start-up. He says Tesla is now in the game with high-profile investments and partnerships, and Tesla wants to set the record straight. Reyes said the company’s repeated attempts to contact the BBC over the course of months were ignored, and a lawsuit for libel and malicious falsehood was the only way to go.In the blog post, Reyes lists bullet points of what Top Gear claims happened while testing the Roadster, countered by “facts” disproving the claims. For one, Top Gear said the Roadster’s true range is only 55 miles per charge, although Tesla says it will do 200 miles. Reyes said the Roadster has been certified under EU regulations, and that Top Gear was wrong. He said a Tesla owner achieved “an astounding 313 miles on a single charge.” You can check out the blog post to see more of these points and counterpoints.Tesla is apparently not “doing this for money,” but feels the episode contains blatant lies that have been re-broadcasted and is widely available. BBC released a statement saying it stands by the program and will be “vigorously defending this claim.”The original episode is shown below.Read more at the Tesla Motors blog, via CrunchGearlast_img read more

Photos over 50 years

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Pallaconian Brotherhood of Melbourne and Victoria will be celebrating their 50 year anniversary this year. And to showcase their contribution to Victoria, they are putting on a photo exhibition Recollections – 1961-2011. An eclectic selection of photographs spanning the 50 year history of the organisation, these snapshots depict the prolific social, cultural and economic contributions made by the Greek Laconian community to a truly multicultural Australia. Through these images, you will see one generation striving to hold on to the familiarity of a life and culture left behind in the mother country, and a new generation proudly embracing the Laconian heritage of its ancestors while acknowledging it’s Greek Australian cultural identity. Pallaconian Brotherhood of Melbourne and Victoria secretary, Cathy Petroulis, told Neos Kosmos that this exhibition is important to showcase the contribution the brotherhood has made to not only Victoria, but the whole of Australia. A relative newcomer to the organisation, having been there for only eight months, she said it was difficult sourcing pictures for this exhibition. “I had to rely on private collections. I was fortunate enough to source the original articles that people had kept. Some people are willing to share their photos and some were scared that they would lose them. These will be scanned in and we are hoping to make a database from this end for future generations to have access,” Ms Petroulis said. “This way people can see the early beginnings and the purpose of the organisation in the 60s. And now in 2011 the organisation seeks not only to be a base and network facility for Greek Australians, as originally the purpose was for Greeks who migrated to Australia. “Now it’s for future generations of Greek Australians to see where there roots are. To see where our parents and our grandparents socialised, how they networked, what they needed to survive in Australia. Our needs now are so different. We have the internet, we speak two languages. Back then they only spoke Greek and they felt so isolated from their homeland. Now organisations such as ours, through our youth groups and dance groups, we are one of the few organisations that have an active youth group and that’s how we are hoping to keep the organisation going,” she said. The exhibition will kick off with a free cocktail party on Saturday 25 June at the Laconian House 253 Albert Street, Brunswick. Premier of Victoria Ted Baillieu will be attending along with other prominent Greek Australians within the community. The exhibition will run until 28 July and admission is free.last_img read more

Athens burning

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram — There are not many certainties in life (and they seem to be getting fewer every passing day), but there is one thing that you can definitely bet on and that is that on certain days, riots will take place in Athens. — It will happen on 17 November each year, when the anniversary of the students’ anti-junta revolt will predictably lead with clashes between so-called anarchists and the riot police. — For the past few years, another annual ritual of the same kind takes place on 6 December. — The date commemorates a horrific event: the cold-blooded murder of a 15-year-old boy, Alexandros Grigoropoulos, by police officer Epaminondas Korkoneas. — Let’s repeat it, so that we finally get it. On a random Saturday night nine years ago a police officer shot a 15-year-old unarmed child dead. — In the meantime, he’s gone through a trial, been convicted, issued several apologies covering all range of emotions, said that he has nothing to apologise for, fired his attorney, issued another apology and is now again on a trial that is taking painfully long. — In the meantime, there has been no major overhaul of the Greek police force, no audit to determine the culture Korkoneas emerged within, why an officer of the law, responsible for keeping people safe, would aim his gun at a child and pull the trigger. — In the meantime, Greece has defaulted, the political system has entered an ongoing crisis ,and a group of Nazi criminals have become the third largest political party. — With a large following within the police force, according to election statistics. — Are you surprised?— Greek media are constantly surprised; so, even though one would be certain that anti-fascist groups and riot police would clash on the anniversary of the incident, the clashes are reported as something unexpected. Rocks and firebombs were thrown, rubbish bins and flower pots were turned into barricades, and the neighbourhood of Exarchia was, once again, drowned in fumes from burning things and tear gas. — The Greek chorus of media pundits once again started chanting about the lawlessness that rules the neighbourhood, which has been traditionally considered as a haven for the underground (from leftist political groups to philosophers to punk rock groups taking their first steps), although previous underground bars and anarchist bookshops are closing and giving way to mainstream restaurants and cafes, signalling a slow, but certain, process of gentrification. — In fact, despite the Opposition persisting on the ‘law and order’ rhetoric and targeting Exarchia, official police statistics show that, but for petty theft, Exarchia is no more dangerous for passers-by than picturesque Plaka, nor more dirty than any other part of Athens, really, the city is completely abandoned to filth. — Yet, only in Exarchia would a local butcher shop be vandalised by a group of activists protesting against the meat industry, like it happened a few weeks ago. — Which leads to the other issue that sparked debate in Greece. The threat that the EU would ban one of the traditional Greek dishes, gyros, or doner kebab (more on that later). — This, of course was fake news, first printed by one of Europe’s usual suspects, the German Bild newspaper, stating that EU is considering to ban phosphates used to preserve meat used for gyros. — Adressing the rumour, the European Commission worked to disperse the fears of indignant Greek meat lovers, stating that the opposite is in fact happening. So 24 out of 28 EU countries agreed to allow the further use of phosphates in frozen meat products, deeming the procedure safe for the health of consumers. — This is an understatement, of course. Gyros meat might be ‘safe’ but it is not by any chance ‘healthy’. — But who cares? It’s our national dish. — Doner kebab, that is. — Yes, the Greek national dish has a distinctly Turkish undertone to it – but at this stage, we’re probably used to this.— As used to having an Athens neighbourhood engulfed in smoke and fumes every now and then. — So, the Greeks rioted against another EU assault at what makes us culturally special (our reliance on chemically enhanced meat). — But there was no riot when the leader of our neighbours at the other side of the doner visited Greece. — Modern-day tyrant Recep Tayip Erdogan came to Athens and managed a first win – to make the Greek PM issue a statement against Anti-Erdogan ‘coup plotters’, saying they are not welcome in Greece. — From his part, the Turkish president said that it’s time to reconsider the Lausanne Treaty.— No sign of riot against this statement. — Apparently people were still digesting their phosphate-laden gyros.last_img read more

Uber adds public transportation to its app starting with Denver

first_img Mobile Tech Industry Mobile Apps Uber You may be able to use the Uber app to see when your bus is coming. On Thursday the ride-hailing giant rolled out its first integration with public transit. Users in Denver will now see end-to-end directions and real-time information for public transit in the app, thanks to a partnership with the Regional Transportation District. “Our customers want their trips to be as seamless as possible, and a collaboration like this one allows them to plan for travel from end to end, including additional first mile and last mile options,” said David Genova, CEO and general manager of RTD, in a blog post. “RTD is pleased to work with Uber as we present riders with additional, complementary options to most efficiently reach their destination.”This isn’t Uber’s first attempt to become the one-stop shop for transportation. In September, the company launched a new feature called Mode Switch, an in-app tool that lets people see what modes of transportation the company offers in that location, including cars, bikes and scooters. From there, users can choose what transportation they want to use. Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said the ride-hailing giant wants “to be the Amazon of transportation.”Riders will see “Transit” next to UberX, Uber Pool and other available options from the ride-hailing company once they enter their destinations. When they select the option, they’ll be able to view available transit routes along with real-time departure and arrival times. Users will see walking directions to and from the transit stations. They’ll also soon be able to buy and use RTD tickets, Uber said.Uber integrated this public transportation information through a partnership with the urban mobility app Moovit, which provides real-time transit data and route planning around the world. Uber said that with this partnership it’ll expand the feature to more cities in coming months.First published Jan. 31, 11:56 a.m. PT.

DesiClik serving Indians in US plans to launch B2B business soon

first_imgDesiClick website.ScreenshotDesiClick is a new platform that is enabling customers in the United States to buy indigenous Indian items in seamless manner. The item can be as small as a pack of garam masala.The Indian population in the US is growing every year, but not many states and cities in the country have stores for this growing demographic. The firm decided to fill this vacuum with theindiabazaar.com, and subsequently re-branded it as DesiClik.com in 2014.DesiClik.com is currently one of the largest US-based e-commerce marketplaces specialising in Indian products — ranjing from apparel, jewellery, handicraft, gifts, furniture, grocery, restaurant equipment, religious to even puja items, festive goods and household items.The firm had reported an annual turnover of $300,000 in 2016, and company executives expect sales to grow manifold in the years to come. The firm is also planning to bring more products in their platform in a move to scale up business.”…We will be adding full-scale grocery and sporting categories soon. The grocery category can help us bring significant repeat customers on a regular basis. Our plan is to become a household name for the 3 million Indians in the US. This can be achieved by reaching out to our target audience through wise spends on marketing campaigns that include both TV and digital,” Deepak Agarwal, co-founder, DesiClik, told International Business Times, India.Going forward, DesiClik plans to launch a business-to-business (B2B) section which will connect buyers from the US with sellers in India, offering a complete range of B2B solutions.”This new platform will essentially be a B2B marketplace for business goods and supplies that will help suppliers and exporters in India and businesses in the US to trade with each other,” Agarwal said.Before the vendors comes on board, there will multiple rounds of scrutiny to validate the credibility of the vendor.”There is a process in place to scrutinize the vendors. We will be interviewing them and reviewing the details about the business and financials before they get listed. One of the reasons we have an annual subscription fee for the vendors is to ensure that we get only genuine vendors on board,” explained Agarwal.Going forward, the firm is planning to expand on a global scale and replicate the DesiClik model in countries with higher Indian population, like Canada, the UK and Australia.”We are looking for investments to take the business to the next level — both in terms of the B2B platform as well as for our worldwide expansion. We are confident of becoming a $5-million US company in the next five years in terms of annual revenue,” said Agarwal.last_img read more

Modi govt drags Deloitte KPMG affiliate BSR to NCLT seeks 5year ban

first_imgA bird flies next to the logo of IL&FS (Infrastructure Leasing and Financial Services Ltd.) installed on the facade of a building at its headquarters in Mumbai, India, September 25, 2018.REUTERS/Francis Mascarenhas/File photoThe central government has moved to the National Company Law Tribunal seeking a 5-year ban on auditors Deloitte Haskins & Sells and BSR & Co for alleged irregularities in hiding bad debts of the cash strapped Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services Limited (IL&FS). Financial daily, the Economic Times reported that the centre sought a five-year ban under Section 140 of the Companies Act. Notably, this is the first time the government has invoked this act to debar an auditor. The two firms won’t be allowed to audit any listed or unlisted company, including banks and non-banking financial companies (NBFCs), for five years if the proposed punishment is accepted by the NCTL.The NCTL has, in turn, has directed the government to share the 800-page chargesheet filed by the Serious Fraud Investigation Office to the audit firms. The development comes after the lawyers and the executives accused in the case argued that they have not been served with the documents which also includes chargesheet. The firms moreover have also asked for time to prepare to respond to the ministry of corporate affairs’ (MCA) allegations. The government lawyers submitted that they had shared the electronic version of the chargesheet to BSR & Co but Deloitte is yet to receive the same. The firm has 10 days to prepare a case to defend itself as the NCTL set the next hearing date on June 21st. The IL&FS group is facing serious liquidity crisis and has defaulted on interest payments on various debt repayments since 27 August.ReutersThe SFIO in its chargesheet alleged that “The loans were transferred by mere book entry and resulted in the closure of old loans. The new loans didn’t require provisioning or recognition as NPA (non-performing asset). Hence the assignment of the same was prejudicial to the interest of the company. The auditors having the knowledge of the same had not reported the same in the audit report.”It further added that the firms fraudulently helped the IL&FS hid information of various loans, inflated profits and showed that everything is running well. “Investigations revealed that the auditors, along with their engagement teams of IFIN did not perform their duties diligently. The auditors, despite having the knowledge of the funding of the defaulting borrowers for principal and interest payments, failed to report in the auditors’ report for FY 2013-14 to FY 2017-18,” the agency alleged.last_img read more

Don’t try and sneak a crafty cigaretteIf you’re a smoker, view long flights as a chance to extend your life. Think of it like this. If you’re a regular smoker and every cigarette brings your date with death ten minutes closer, a long flight is basically a temporary reprieve from an early death sentence. But a longer life isn’t the only advantage of a temporary break from the cancer sticks; give into your cravings for an in-flight nicotine fix (and smoking over the toilet/spraying aftershave/covering the fire alarm really won’t help) and you could well find yourself being arrested on arrival.6. Don’t try new food before a flightAirport food might be improving but it’s still not great. If you’re prone to boredom at airports, it’s worth bearing in mind that however long the wait, this is never, ever the best time to try a new food. Sure, that celebrity chef-owned Mongolian street food restaurant in terminal one might look incredibly tempting, but if you’ve never tried that type of food before, that delicious looking serving of marmot (that’s squirrel, to you and me) could well result in you spending your entire flight staring into a sick bag.7. Don’t book a connecting flight which departs less than an hour of your first one arrivingWe’ve all seem them. Those crazed, panic-eyed travellers running through the airport desperate to catch the connecting flight they should never have booked. Our advice? Don’t bother. Yes, that once-a-week flight to Mae Hong Son in Northern Thailand might well be cheap as chips but if it leaves within on hour of your other flight landing, you’re allowing little time for a late arrival, let alone queues at the airport. In reality, there are usually alternative ways to get to the destination in question, whether it’s a later flight or a flight to a nearby airport.8. Don’t throw away your luggage receiptTravelling involves a lot of paperwork. First of all there’s the big one: the passport. Then there’s boarding passes and visa paperwork. So we understand why it’s easy to lose the luggage receipts airline staff give you after you’ve checked in your luggage. But arriving in your destination to discover your luggage hasn’t done the same can be a soul-destroying moment, and that little slip of paper might just make the difference between departing the airport, suitcase in hand, or moping out of the terminal knowing that you’ll be hand-washing your smalls and relying on free hotel toothpaste for the next 48 hours.So now you know the rules, are you ready to start searching for flights?

With the steely precision of a NASA scientist you’ve cut your capsule wardrobe down to minimum requirements, folded and rolled your lightest essentials, downloaded your boarding card – and… 1. Don’t get legless before your flightThat moment when ‘delayed’ flashes up on the information board can be soul-destroying, but no amount of alcohol will numb the pain of a flight delay. When it finally gets the green light to get airborne it’s highly likely you’ll be prevented from boarding if you’ve spent the past few hours downing your stash of duty-free booze. Even if you do make it onto the flight, you’ll be a serious contender for the title of world’s most unpopular passenger as a result of your regular trips to heed calls of nature, the drunken snoring you’ll emit throughout the flight and the alcohol-related lack of coordination, which will become painfully obvious when you repeatedly switch on your fellow passengers’ light by mistake. And if you’ve ever wondered how to beat jet-lag, you’ll probably know that alcohol will simply make it harder for your body to adjust once you arrive at your destination. 2. Don’t carry anything for anyone elseYou’d be surprised to know just how many people fall foul of this particular rule. We all know not to carry packages for someone else, but the warning doesn’t just relate to cigar-smoking locals who approach you in dark alleys to ask if you’d like to carry something for their long-lost Uncle Pedro. That wooden Buddha which your new backpacker friend asked you to carry in your hand luggage due to their sudden lack of space? Walk away. That tightly wrapped and surprisingly heavy “Balinese tablecloth” that dread-locked guy asked you to deliver to his linen-living uncle? Bin it. If the situation smells dodgy, it probably is. And it’s a smell which is highly likely to be detected by those pesky sniffer dogs waiting to greet you at Heathrow.3. Don’t be rude to cabin crewNobody likes a grumpy stewardess. You’ve shelled out a huge amount of cold, hard cash for your ticket, after all. But if he or she does something to annoy you, store up your anger for a post-arrival tweet or letter of complaint. Your life is in the hands of these people when you’re in air, and while we’re not suggesting a snarky response to an stewardess could result in them sabotaging your life jacket, they’re still the people you’ll turn to if your headphones don’t work or when you discover your television set’s stuck on the children’s channel. They’re also the people who serve up your food and drink, which we’d rather didn’t come with a side order of spit.4. Don’t joke about explosives. Ever.It doesn’t matter if you’re a designer-clad buisnesswoman or a vicar: joke about anything explosive in the mere vicinity of a plane and you face a rather unpleasant interrogation. Ditto humourous emails to friends speculating that the reason for your flight’s delay might be the fact that police have found out about the bomb you’re trying to sneak on, or jokes about how calling in a bomb threat might just help you get out of that dreaded business meeting in New York. Just don’t do it.last_img read more

Last month, a CBC story also recounted a 24-year-old woman’s allegation that Hoggard sexually assaulted her in a hotel two years ago.Hoggard said in his own statement last month that he has never engaged in non-consensual sexual behaviour, but acknowledged he “behaved in a way that objectified women” and was “reckless and dismissive of their feelings.”The group has since been dropped by its management team, blacklisted by scores of radio stations and abandoned by bands booked as tour openers. Hedley also withdrew itself from consideration for the Juno Awards.

Limassol municipality to monitor sea pollution again this year

first_imgLimassol Municipality on Tuesday announced it has renewed cooperation with a company to carry out sea patrols as part of efforts to tackle pollution in the Limassol bay area.Limassol Mayor Nicos Nicolaides and General Manager of VTS Vasiliko Terminal Services Yiannos Lakkotropis signed the renewal of the cooperation between VTS and VSS EPE Environmental Protection Services for May to September.The agreement concerns services by two vessels and specialised personnel in matters of marine pollution.One vessel will patrol the sea area between the boundary of the bathers’ area and the Limassol port’s anchorage and the second vessel will be on a wheeled vehicle that will patrol the coastal road and intervene to tackle any pollution spots within the bathers’ area.Sea and land patrols were introduced last year by the municipality following incidents of heavy sea pollution in some areas in Limassol and many complaints by bathers, locals and tourists.Nicolaides said last September that cruise ships and yachts dumping their waste in the sea off Limassol significantly contributed to sea pollution and that tackling the issue was one of his municipality’s highest priorities.Conditions had improved in 2018 compared to previous years because the competent departments cooperated successfully while the services of experts in marine pollution monitoring were used, he had said.A study by the University of Technology (Tepak) last year showed the Limassol port’s anchorage as the main source of pollution along the city’s coastline.The findings were based on the results of laboratory testing of samples collected. To a lesser extent, fish farms south of the Limassol port were also found to discharge polluting substances like fats and oils, but these were considered of secondary importance.Other minor polluters identified, the study said, were the Limassol port and marina. You May LikeAuto Overload30 Perfectly Timed Moments Captured When It All Went WrongAuto OverloadUndoFinance NancyRemember Him?
