“I am deeply troubled by this sudden resort to execution after three years of refraining from carrying out the death penalty,” she said in a statement issued today. Saying the circumstances of the executions may constitute a breach of Afghanistan’s obligations under international law, the High Commissioner called on the Government “to reinstate a moratorium on the carrying out of any further executions.”In a statement issued yesterday, the top UN envoy to Afghanistan also expressed his concern at the use of the death penalty in the war-torn nation. Tom Koenigs called for Afghanistan to “continue working towards attaining highest human rights standards and ensuring that due process of law and the rights of all citizens are respected.”Meanwhile, Ms. Arbour will begin a four-day visit to Sri Lanka tomorrow, at the invitation of the Government.The visit to the South Asian nation, which has been embroiled in a decades-long conflict between Government forces and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), is part of the High Commissioner’s efforts to engage with Member States in the promotion and protection of human rights. While in Colombo, Ms. Arbour will be meeting with President Mahinda Rajapaksa, senior Government officials, and representatives of political parties, UN agencies, the diplomatic community and civil society, Yvon Edoumou of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) told reporters in Geneva.The High Commissioner will also meet with members of the Tamil movement, including Members of Parliament representing the Tamil National Alliance, with whom she will raise issues concerning human rights, Mr. Edoumou added. 9 October 2007United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour has urged Afghanistan to reinstate a moratorium on the death penalty following the execution of 15 convicted prisoners in Kabul on Sunday.
“The bacteria that cause gonorrhoea are particularly smart. Every time we use a new class of antibiotics to treat the infection, the bacteria evolve to resist them,” said Dr. Teodora Wi, Medical Officer, Human Reproduction, at the UN World Health Organization (WHO).Data from 77 countries show that “antibiotic resistance is making gonorrhoea – a common sexually-transmitted infection – much harder, and sometimes impossible, to treat,” according to the agency. WHO noted that the current “last-resort treatment” in the form of extended-spectrum cephalosporins (ECS) has now shown resistance in more than 50 countries. As a result, the agency issued updated global treatment recommendations in 2016, advising doctors to give 2 antibiotics: ceftriaxone and azithromycin.The development of a new antibiotic for gonorrhoea “is not attractive for commercial pharmaceutical companies,” WHO said, noting that only three candidate drugs are currently in the research-and-development pipeline.The treatments are taken only for short periods of time, unlike medicines for chronic diseases, and they become less effective as resistance develops, meaning that the supply of new drugs constantly needs to be replenished, according to the agency. Gonorrhoea can be prevented through safer sexual behaviour, WHO stressed. It pointed to decreasing condom use, increased urbanization and travel, poor infection detection rates, and inadequate or failed treatment for the estimated 78 million people infected each year. “These cases may just be the tip of the iceberg, since systems to diagnose and report untreatable infections are lacking in lower-income countries where gonorrhoea is actually more common,” said Dr. Wi.Women are particularly at risk, potentially leading to pelvic inflammatory disease, ectopic pregnancy and infertility, as well as increased risk of HIV.Earlier this year, WHO announced that it is classifying antibiotics into three categories – Access, Watch and Reserve – to preserve the effectiveness of “last resort” antibiotics.
Performers entertain the crowd with Chinese Gong Fu at the opening of the Confucius Institute.The Confucius Institute at Brock University officially opened its doors this weekend.To mark the occasion, the institute and University hosted a grand opening community celebration. The colourful festivities included Lion Dance, Chinese Gong Fu, Peacock Dance and traditional Chinese instrument ensemble performances, as well as a Fujian Lacquer art exhibit by renowned artist Wang Tianliang.The event included the unveiling of a two-metre tall statue of Confucius outside Brock’s International Centre where the new institute will be housed. The statue was gifted to the University by its partner institution in China, Minjiang University.“Twenty-five centuries ago, Confucius was one of the very first visiting international scholars in the world,” said Murray Knuttila, Provost and Vice-President, Academic at the unveiling of the statue. “His advocacy of equal rights to education for all is a very appropriate match for the Canadian value of entitlement of all to education.”One of about 300 such institutes worldwide, the key focus for the Confucius Institute at Brock is to provide formal certification of Mandarin language teachers in Niagara and communities throughout Southern Ontario. The University has been offering Mandarin language credit courses since 1989.“We owe it to our own local community to look beyond Niagara, and we are already committed to the concept of a global perspective in a knowledge-based economy,” President Jack Lightstone said. “Being sure-footed and confidently open-minded on the world stage is critical to Canada’s ability to be a leading contributing partner in the global village.”The key players at Brock behind the Confucius Institute initiative and Minjiang University collaboration include:Greg Finn, Vice-Provost and Vice-President, AcademicProfessor Cheng Luo (Applied Linguistics) and Professor Chunlei Lu (Education), co-directors of the Confucius Institute at Brock;Professor Tony DiPetta (Education), director, Centre for Continuing Teacher Education;Professor Zhongzhi He (Business), ambassador for International Partnerships;Ye Yanhong, Mandarin language instructor;Sheila Young, director, Brock International.Officials unveil a statue of Confucius.

Microsoft has started a mud-slinging campaign, this time in an attempt to drive users to Windows Phone. A series of tweets last night from the Windows Phone account targeted users who may have been victims of malware attacks while using Android smartphones resulted in more than a few nasty responses from fans of Google’s mobile OS.Windows Phone 8 is in need of users and developers. It makes sense that Microsoft would do everything in their power to lure both groups to Windows Phone 8 by any means necessary. When Google found themselves in this same situation, they reached out to developers that were successful on other platforms and sent them free smartphones to test their apps and release them to the Play Store. Given the range of high quality hardware that Microsoft has access to — like the HTC 8X and Lumia 920 — you’d think this would be something Microsoft would try for themselves. Instead, the company has opted to invite users to share horror stories about the perils of using the apparently malware-ridden Android platform in exchange for a free phone.There are very specific situations under which Android smartphones have had issues with malware. For the majority of Android smartphones though, malware is only an issue if you have root access enabled or the user has installed apps from unverified sources. Neither of these things happen without a multi-step process involving directly handling the smartphone, meaning the owner is aware of the risks they are taking.Android 2.3 had a vulnerability that allows for a specific kind of exploit called “Gingerbreak” to gain root access to a smartphone without the users knowledge. The vulnerability was patched, but there are still more than 50% of the total Android user base running some variant of Android 2.3. Even so, there are no Android phones being sold in US markets today that have the exploit available to them.The Twitter popular responded exactly as you would imagine. The #droidrage hastag that Microsoft invited users to share with quickly became filled with counterattacks and further mud slinging. Absolutely nothing productive happened — and the only thing Microsoft managed to accomplish was riling up Android fans.It seems to me that if you want to convince developers that have been successful on other platforms to spend some time with Windows Phone the last thing you would want to do is send their existing users into a hate-filled frenzy. This seems right on par with the other less professional campaigns Microsoft has been pushing recently in what feels like misguided attempts to bring users to their services.Setting aside that Microsoft is the last company on the planet that should be pointing out malware as a problem on another platform, I have yet to find a single person who has responded to these marketing attempts positively. Microsoft has the potential here to point out the strengths in their platform over the weaknesses in others, and instead seems resolute in their decision to embarrass themselves in another failed PR attempt.Related: How to root the Nexus 7

Dil Raju and Karan JoharCollage of photos taken from Twitter and FacebookAfter SS Rajamouli, Tollywood producers Dil Raju is said to be teaming up with Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar. He has planned to remake Nani and Shraddha Srinath’ Telugu movie Jersey in Hindi.Raju, who made his debut as a producer with the Telugu film Dil in 2003, has bankrolled over 30 movies in his career spanning 16 years and most of them have become successful ventures at the box office. It is known that he is set to enter Bollywood with the remake of F2 – Fun and Frustration in Hindi.The sources close to Dil Raju now claims that he has planned to expand his production house Sri Venkateswara Creations (SVC) all over India. He is set to take successful Telugu movies with universal appeal to Hindi directly and collaborate with top B-Town stars. The Hindi remake of F2 – Fun and Frustration, which he is jointly producing with Boney Kapoor, is the first attempt in that direction.Dil Raju, who is also a well-known distributor, released Jersey in Nizam and Vizag regions and he is stunned by its performance at the ticket counters in these areas. The movie has a universal appeal and after seeing its critical and commercial success, the producer has reportedly planned to take it Bollywood.Sources close to Dil Raju said that he wants to collaborate with Karan Johar for the Hindi remake of Jersey. It is said that he is currently in talks with the Bollywood producer, who earlier presented Baahubali movies. The two are expected to complete the formalities of their first joint production.Written and directed by Gowtham Tinnanuri, Jersey is a period sports drama that is about a middle-aged cricketer who is forced to give up on his dream after his career failed to take off. It has struck a chord audience, critics and also many celebs including SS Rajamouli, Allu Arjun, Jr NTR and Vijay Deverakonda. The movie has recovered over 60 per cent of the distributors’ investment in just three days.
Employees of the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) cut a cake outside the building to celebrate the Sensex index rising to over 30,000, in Mumbai in this April 26, 2017 file photo. REUTERS/Shailesh AndradeTen years after the fall of Lehmann Brothers triggered the great crisis of 2008, the world is edging closer to another bout of financial turmoil, according to researchers at JPMorgan.The crisis prediction model created by the bank predicts that the next big financial crisis will erupt in 2020 and that its severity will be less than that of the 2008 crisis.The hallmarks of such an economic plunge will be a great liquidity crisis, a significant rout in US and emerging markets and a softening of the energy prices, the analysts said, according to Bloomberg.The following are the key predictions:US stock markers could see a 20 percent declineGlobal energy prices could slide as much as 35 percentBase metal prices are likely to soften up to 29 percentEmerging market stock markets could see a rout that will wipe off up to 48 percent in value.The researchers wrote that the next great liquidity crisis will be caused by the big shift away from actively managed investing and the focus on index funds, exchange-traded funds and quantitative-based trading strategies.”The shift from active to passive asset management, and specifically the decline of active value investors, reduces the ability of the market to prevent and recover from large drawdowns,” Joyce Chang and Jan Loeys wrote in the note.For India, the projected fall in energy prices could be a silver lining amid the gloom of the next meltdown. However, on the downside, the easing fuel woes could be offset by a potential bloodbath in the markets. Dow Jones blood bath sees biggest day drop in more than 6 years Close After the subprime mortgage meltdown in the US triggered an expansive global crisis ten years ago, central banks around the world launched long-running accommodative fiscal policies and governments delved into financial market reforms. But there are economists who believe that the reforms haven’t been able to completely shut off the chances of a repeat of the crisis while the fallout from the expansionary monetary policies have posed a fresh threat.Raghuram Rajan, former RBI governor who had predicted the 2008 crisis, recently said he is one who sees that risk clearly.The post-crisis reforms did not address central banks’ role in creating asset bubbles through accommodative monetary policy, and this could be financial markets’ biggest long-term challenge, Rajan told Howard Gold in an interview.Former British prime minister Gordon Brown said on Wednesday the world was sleepwalking into the next financial crisis. He also warned that the impact of the next crisis will be severe in a “leaderless” world.”We are in danger of sleepwalking into a future crisis … There is going to have to be a severe awakening to the escalation of risks, but we are in a leaderless world.”
More information: Pigeons trade efficiency for stability in response to level of challenge during confined flight, C. David Williams, PNAS, DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1407298112 AbstractIndividuals traversing challenging obstacles are faced with a decision: they can adopt traversal strategies that minimally disrupt their normal locomotion patterns or they can adopt strategies that substantially alter their gait, conferring new advantages and disadvantages. We flew pigeons (Columba livia) through an array of vertical obstacles in a flight arena, presenting them with this choice. The pigeons selected either a strategy involving only a slight pause in the normal wing beat cycle, or a wings-folded posture granting reduced efficiency but greater stability should a misjudgment lead to collision. The more stable but less efficient flight strategy was not used to traverse easy obstacles with wide gaps for passage but came to dominate the postures used as obstacle challenge increased with narrower gaps and there was a greater chance of a collision. These results indicate that birds weigh potential obstacle negotiation strategies and estimate task difficulty during locomotor pattern selection. Explore further Feral pigeon (Columba livia) in flight. Credit: Alan D. Wilson/Wikipedia/CC BY-SA 2.5 © 2015 Phys.org City dwellers know that pigeons are some of the best flyers around, unlike robins and other birds, pigeons rarely collide with cars, buildings, trees or any other obstacle. That skill has not gone unnoticed—scientists and engineers have been working for years to duplicate their abilities. In this new effort, Williams and Biewener taught some of their tamed specimens to fly through a corridor to get to a meal, then introduced obstacles and high speed cameras to find out how it is that the birds are so good at avoiding objects in their path.The obstacles were plastic pipes, placed vertically some distance apart from one another. To pass between the pipes, the birds had to scrunch themselves a bit, but how they did so, the researchers found, depended on how far apart the pipes were. They noted that when the pipes were at least a half a wing length apart, the birds lifted their wings as if to flap as they approached the obstacle, but then held them steady, above their heads as they passed between the pipes, then flapped down as soon as they were through—a technique that led to very little loss of altitude, which meant it was quite efficient. But if the pipes were moved closer together, they pulled their wings into their body, a less efficient approach, but one much less likely to result in wing damage. To make sure the first approach was not merely coincident based on where the wings were when the birds arrived at the obstacle, the researchers filmed them multiple times, finding the same result each time.Because the birds used two different techniques for allowing them safe passage through the pipe obstacles, based on what they observed as they approached, the researchers believe that choosing which technique to use was a deliberate act, which meant the birds somehow made a choice of which technique to use, just before they passed through—very impressive, especially when noting that birds, except for some such as crows or magpies, are not generally known for their smarts.

A grand welcome planned for Pakistan’s hockey team which won a silver medal in Champions Trophy was on Tuesday called off after a brazen Taliban attack on a military-run school that killed at least 160 people, mostly children.The Pakistan Hockey Federation said the ceremony has been cancelled following the attack on the Army Public School on Warsak Road in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Peshawar city. The ceremony was planned to welcome the players who took Pakistan to the final of the just-concluded tournament in India after a gap of 16 years. Also Read – Khel Ratna for Deepa and Bajrang, Arjuna for JadejaThe players were to be driven in a motorcade to Lahore after their return home via the Wagah Border. The federation said the ceremony would be held at a suitable time. The team lost to Germany in the final. In one of the most gruesome attacks on children anywhere in the world, at least six Taliban militants stormed the school and went classroom-to-classroom shooting indiscriminately.At least 160 people, most of them children, were killed in the attack, which was a reaction to Pakistan military’s campaign against the militants.
In an era of laptops, smartphones and mushrooming Wi-Fi networks, we can get online nearly anywhere. But we often connect without considering the potential perils.Sensitive information you transmit over Wi-Fi can be literally “sniffed” from the airwaves by a nearby snoop using readily available software and equipment. What’s more, hackers could trick you into connecting to their computer by making it appear to be a legitimate Wi-Fi hotspot.Despite these risks, it’s relatively easy and inexpensive to surf safely. Here are three tips for securely using Wi-Fi networks when you’re on-the-go, doing work in hotels, airports, cafés and other public places.1. Avoid automatically connecting to Wi-Fi hotspots.It can be tempting to quickly jump online using one of the 1.4 million public Wi-Fi networks now active in the world. But you could unwittingly connect to a rogue hotspot set up by a crook to gather sensitive information transmitted by unsuspecting users like you.Industry group Wi-Fi Alliance recommends that Web users carefully select which, if any, public network they access rather than allow their device to connect automatically. It also recommends choosing only hotspots that use security technologies known as Wi-Fi Protected Access version two, or WPA2, which are stronger than the older WPA and Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) technologies. A network’s security system is displayed in the box where you enter a password to connect.Related: What to Do If Your Business Gets Hacked 2. Make sure sensitive websites you use encrypt data you send and receive. Sending and receiving information on unsecured public wireless networks can be like shouting in a crowded room, says Maxim Weinstein, executive director of StopBadware, a Cambridge, Mass., nonprofit group that fights malicious websites. “Unless you’re talking in code, it’s no secret to anyone who’s listening.”Fortunately, most websites that handle sensitive information use encryption technology known as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to turn readable text into a mash of digital gibberish. You know SSL is in place if you see “https” in the address bar. It is almost always at work when you’re making a purchase or banking online.Related: How to Protect Android Smartphones From Cyber AttacksMany communication services, such as Google’s Gmail, Microsoft’s Hotmail and Facebook, also use SSL to keep your private communications safe from eavesdroppers. Some services, such as Gmail, use HTTPS by default at all times, but Facebook and others require you to turn the technology on.To activate it on Facebook, click on the down arrow in the upper right corner and select Account Settings. In the left column, click Security and enable Secure Browsing.3. Install and use VPN software on your device to encrypt your Internet activity. “Virtual private network” software is a must-have for road warriors who regularly transmit sensitive data over public Wi-Fi networks. VPN software creates an encrypted tunnel through which your data flows as it traverses the Internet. Employees at many large companies already use VPNs on business trips to protect valuable corporate information, and small companies would be wise to follow suit.If you don’t have an information-technology department that can set up a VPN for you, consider using one of the personal VPNs now on the market. Options include PrivateWiFi from startup Private Communication Corp. (Windows and Mac, $9.95 a month or $84.95 a year; three-day free trial); Anonymizer Universal (Windows, Mac, iPhone and iPad, $79.99 a year; 14-day free trial); and VPN4ALL (Windows and Mac $9.95-$19.95 a month, depending on amount of data use; iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Mobile and tablets, $5.95 a month).Related: What Technologies Banks Should Be Using to Keep Your Money SafeOpenVPN Technologies, keeper of the open-source technology behind some of these software products, sells a hosted VPN service specifically to small businesses called PrivateTunnel (Windows and Mac, price based on amount of data transferred).Another thing to consider: putting up a firewall to block strangers seeking access to your computer. Firewalls are typically provided by modern operating systems and are on by default. To make sure yours is active on a Windows PC, review Microsoft’s directions based on your operating system version. On Macs, open System Preferences and click Security & Privacy and then Firewall.You also can avoid Wi-Fi networks altogether and go online using a cellular connection from a wireless carrier, which use encryption when transferring data, albeit at a significant cost. Plan to pay for a large or unlimited data plan for a mobile device. For your laptop, you’ll need a special device that plugs into the side and a monthly service plan. Verizon and AT&T can charge $50 to $60 a month for 5 GB.

Creditors of the now defunct Cyprus Airways are expected to convene in a general assembly meeting next Wednesday, as part of the carrier’s final stages of winding down.Liquidators are expected to present creditors with a settlement plan which if approved would distribute €11m. This will be divided with €6.7m going to the carrier’s former employees and €4.3m to the state.According to Phileleftheros, if the plan is not approved, the sum is set to drop to €8m to cover legal and court expenses required to complete the winding down of Cyprus Airways.Items up for sale including a nine-seater Mitsubishi L300 Minibus vehicle, generators, water dispensers, work units, stands for weighing suitcases, computers, bins, cutlery and uniforms.The original Cyprus Airways shut down in January 2015 after the European Commission ruled that more than €102m in government support constituted illegal state aid and €66m had to be repaid.The national carrier could not afford to return the money and operations were suspended.A year later, Charlie Airlines bought the rights to use the trademark ‘Cyprus Airways’ for €2.04m, to use for the next 10 years.You May LikeLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.

the two chose to take the high attacking ground and put on a sparkling show of shot-making to score upset wins Cilic pushed World No 1 Rafael Nadal to the absolute edge of the court and his physical limit to win 3-6 6-3 6-7 (5) 6-2 2-0 (retired) while the 23-year-old Kyle Edmund played lights-out tennis to defeat World No 3 Grigor Dimitrov 6-4 3-6 6-3 6-4 Armed with big strokes and a bigger heart they took the attack to their more fancied opponents Spain’s Rafael Nadal left is consoled by Croatia’s Marin Cilic after he retired injured from their quarterfinal AP While Nadal’s retirement was unfortunate and abrupt it couldn’t take the sheen completely of Cilic’s play Tennis is often compared with boxing not just for the thrill of the one-on-one fight but for the physical and mental blows they have to give and absorb And the Croat was just a bit better at both: he threw enough punches to leave Nadal reeling The injury took Nadal’s feet out from under him “In the end very unfortunate because Rafa is always fighting really hard always giving the best on the court” said Cilic after going toe-to-toe with the best competitor in the sport “I was always in that process where I want to keep going with my own game and try to lift up lift up keep pushing as much as I can So extremely pleased with the performance” Cilic knows how cruel the sport can be and also that history is written by the winners At the Wimbledon final last year against Roger Federer Cilic was hobbled by foot blisters which reduced him to tears by the end of a nightmarish outing on Centre Court on the last Sunday At the Rod Laver Arena on Tuesday evening though a fully-fit Cilic proved more than a handful for Nadal He refused to submit to Nadal’s iron will The Spaniard had come into the match with a 5-1 head-to-head record and the first set showed why he had such a grip on the tall Croat and his many talents While Cilic has a big serve and powerful ground strokes he doesn’t quite have the patience to work them Nadal as always was running down all the shots loading them with top-spin and waiting for the Croat to pull the trigger Cilic’s serve wasn’t quite as effective against one of the best returners of the game: though in the second and third set Nadal went almost as far back as Sydney to retrieve his wide serves And so it was that despite Cilic’s 20 aces in the match he was the first to lose serve in the eighth game Nadal won the set 6-3 and took a 3-2 lead in the second after Cilic served a double fault Aware of Spaniard’s speed and endless reserves the 29-year-old had been going for the lines and the corners playing high-risk tennis All it needs is some confidence to make it high-reward A Cilic forehand winner took him to deuce on Nadal’s serve in the sixth game Though he missed the first break point the Croat cracked an inside-out forehand winner to win the game on the second opportunity Cilic stayed close to Nadal from that moment on; he won the second set 6-3 and made the Spaniard chase the ball corner-to-corner At 31 Nadal still has some cool wheels but Cilic’s constant pressing was taking its toll The Croat hit 83 winners which included to two whizzing backhand cross-courts during the third-set tie-break to ensure that the match stayed on his racquet Though he lost the third set tie-break he didn’t quite lose heart The groundstrokes were still firing and fist still pumping When Cilic was 4-1 up in the fourth set Nadal showed first signs of folding He took a medical time-out and the trainer was seen working his right quad There was one point when the Spaniard could barely jump up to serve and stood limply by the baseline as the returns flew past him He fought back from 0-40 down twice in the set but couldn’t quite save it He brought an end to his agony when Cilic took an assured 2-0 lead in the fifth “It’s a negative thing but I don’t going to complain because happened to me more than others But on other hand I was winning more than almost anyone That’s the real thing But who knows if I didn’t have all these injuries.” Nadal trailed off It might be back to the rehab table for the Spaniard but Cilic will march on In the semi-finals he will be up against a player who has refused to back down on every challenge thrown at him in Melbourne For a couple of years now the tennis world has marvelled at Edmund’s destructive powers A shy man from a varied background — born in South Africa has a Welsh father and South African mother grew up in Yorkshire was into tennis cricket and swimming and is now settled in the Bahamas — the 23-year-old has found his focus this fortnight Britain’s Kyle Edmund reacts after defeating Bulgaria’s Grigor Dimitrov in their quarterfinal AP His forehand has blazed brighter than the Australian sun burning opponents He defeated 11th seed Kevin Anderson in five hard-fought sets overcame almost 40°C heat and Nikoloz Basilashvili 7-6 (0) 3-6 4-6 6-0 7-5 in the third round and beat veteran Andreas Seppi to make his first Grand Slam quarterfinals He kept his nerves in check during an utterly entertaining and convincing win over third seed Dimitrov “I’m aware of the occasion but really just tried to focus on my tennis enjoy it as much as possible” said Edmund who became only the sixth British man to enter the semi-final of a Grand Slam “In the key moments I maybe stepped up well and was brave really went for my shots and they came good” Edmund coached by Swede Fredrik Rosengren (former coach of Magnus Norman Robin Soderling) since last year played his first match on the Rod Laver Arena and looked quite comfortable in it He has learnt greater control but Edmund’s all-out aggression leaves him with very little margin for error In the quarterfinal he hit 48 winners and
