UN Secretary General pledges to take action on journalist safety

first_img February 23, 2017 – Updated on February 24, 2017 UN Secretary General pledges to take action on journalist safety Protecting journalistsInternational bodies ImpunityViolenceUnited Nations News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) and the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) urged UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres to take steps to address the urgent issue of safety of journalists. Organisation Reporters Without Borders (RSF) Secretary General Christophe Deloire and the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) Executive Director Joel Simon met with United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres today to discuss the #ProtectJournalists campaign to appoint a UN Special Representative for the safety of journalists. David Callaway, board nominee for president of the World Editor’s Forum, part of WAN-IFRA, an early supporter of the campaign, also attended the meeting.“On behalf of RSF, I welcome Secretary General Guterres’ strong personal commitment to the safety of journalists and a free and independent press, said Christophe Deloire, RSF’s Secretary General. The UNSG believes that these issues are fundamental to democracy and human rights and has pledged to take action. We are counting on him to make the UN more efficient so that journalists can be better protected.” “As journalists around the world are increasingly under attack physically and verbally it is encouraging and gratifying to have this kind of support from the Secretary General, said Joel Simon, CPJ’s Executive Director. We look forward to working with him to move this commitment forward.” The goal of the #ProtectJournalists campaign is to establish a concrete mechanism that enforces international law and thereby finally reduces the number of journalists killed every year in the course of their work.Statistics show that despite various UN resolutions related to safety of journalists and combating impunity, there have been few concrete results on the ground. In fact, the past five years have been the deadliest on record for journalists, with hundreds of journalists killed and many more attacked simply for doing their jobs. RSF reported that 78 journalists were killed in the year 2016 alone and impunity remains the norm, with full justice in only three percent of journalist murders in the past decade, according to CPJ research. Murder is the ultimate form of censorship, and when a journalist is killed the right to information for the broader public is also imperiled. The world’s major problems, from environmental issues to extremist violence, cannot be resolved without the work of journalists. A worldwide coalition of NGOs, media outlets, journalists and prominent public figures are supporting RSF’s initiative for the creation of a Journalist Protector. CPJ, the Associated Press, WAN-IFRA, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Bangkok Post, and the Brazilian Center for Investigative Journalism (Abraji) are just a few of the more than 120 organizations that have joined the coalition to date. This week several coalition members, such as the James W. Foley Foundation, the Syrian Center for Media and Freedom of Expression, and the Pakistan Press Foundation, sent letters to Secretary General Guterres echoing the call for the appointment of a Special Representative.

Managing construction’s return to a ‘new normal’

first_imgGAZETTE: With both Cambridge and Boston taking phased approaches to restarting construction, how are you working with local officials as these projects begin to resume?GARBARINI:  Since the implementation of the construction ban in March, key members of the University have been coordinating closely with state and local officials to ensure full compliance with the orders. We have maintained essential safety functions while further construction has been on hold, and as we begin this phased approach to restarting these projects, we are in constant communication with local officials to ensure our sites are complying with state and local guidelines.GAZETTE: The economic slowdown caused by COVID-19 has had a significant financial impact on the University. Could you speak to how that will impact capital projects?WEENICK: As [Executive Vice President] Katie Lapp outlined in her message to the community last week, one of the University’s planned cost saving measures is reviewing all capital projects. This generally means that those that are still in the design or planning phases will be subject to further review by the University to determine if moving forward currently is advisable. Based on that review, some projects will be deferred to make funds available in the near term for other University needs. In general, construction projects currently underway will proceed toward completion.Our teaching and research mission will drive decision-making as we prioritize which projects will proceed and which will be put on hold. As the University considers near-term spending on projects, those which are essential and support research, teaching, and learning will come first.Interview was edited for clarity and condensed for space. GAZETTE: Studies have shown that Massachusetts has begun to flatten the curve, but risk remains. How is the University keeping workers safe as they return to campus? GARBARINI:  It will be far from business as usual for work that does resume. We will be working with all our contractors to ensure that each of them incorporates all appropriate recommendations of health officials at every level. For example, every person visiting or working on a site will be required to use the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) and make appropriate use of the handwashing stations provided at each project. We will also be requiring that social distancing recommendations are met at construction sites and building entry points by using staggered start times and alternate entries in some cases. Populated places such as lunch areas and parking lots will be dispersed in order to reduce person-to-person interactions. When a task absolutely requires two or more people near one another, enhanced PPE measures will be used.For reasons such as building occupancy and shared use of public spaces, renovations to existing buildings pose different challenges than new construction. Each project requires its own solutions, and our team is working with our contractors to confirm implementation of appropriate safety guidelines that are tailored to the needs of each specific site.GAZETTE: Why is it important to resume work on these projects as soon as possible?O’FARRELL:  Moving forward on construction as quickly as the cities’ phased approaches permit is important because there are several external factors that pose potential risks to any construction site, including those on campus, if left vacant for more than a few months. Our teams across campus did excellent work mitigating those risks when we put projects on hold as we vacated campus in March, but they need to return as quickly as possible to assure that no further risks are introduced by leaving the sites in a state of incompletion.With the summer bringing more extreme weather in the region, construction sites that are not fully enclosed will run the risk of wind or water damage. Each site must be safely and completely enclosed to limit this risk, a process that can take anywhere from several months to a year. The sooner crews can resume building enclosures, the less likely it is that buildings will be affected.Cold weather can also damage the structures, and although the next round of freezing temperatures is months away, many projects develop their schedule around the seasons. For example, exteriors are prioritized in the spring, summer, and fall months, which are better conditions for outside work, and interiors are mostly done in the winter, so people are not overexposed to the elements. Further delays may cause significant issues with buildings trying to get enclosed before the temperature drops. “… one of the University’s planned cost saving measures is reviewing all capital projects. This generally means that those that are still in the design or planning phases will be subject to further review by the University to determine if moving forward currently is advisable.” — Meredith Weenick When students, faculty, and other personnel vacated campus in late March, Harvard’s lecture halls, offices, and community spaces weren’t the only areas left empty. The University’s many capital projects also had to quickly pivot from normal operations and leave sites across campus after Boston and Cambridge temporarily halted construction work to protect public health.Now, as each city has begun a phased approach to a “new normal,” some of those projects have started to resume operations.The Gazette spoke with Vice President for Campus Services Meredith Weenick, Director of Capital Projects for the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Petrina Garbarini, and Managing Director of Harvard Capital Projects Joe O’Farrell to learn more about Harvard’s decision to restart construction.Q&AMeredith Weenick, Petrina Garbarini, and Joe O’FarrellGAZETTE: Can you walk us through the University’s decision to resume campus construction?WEENICK:  As Provost [Alan] Garber noted in his message to the University about planning for fall 2020, decisions at Harvard are complex, require immense planning, and are guided by our academic and research mission and our responsibility to ensure the safety of every member of our community. As we slowly move to resume things paused by the COVID-19 pandemic, capital projects are at the forefront because ensuring that our students, faculty, and staff have the appropriate resources to resume their work when we can all safely return to campus is at the very core of our mission.Knowing that the pause on construction would be lifted once it was determined it was safe to do so, we spent the past several months working internally and in concert with industry experts to carefully think about how we could move critical capital projects forward without sacrificing the health and safety of our workers and community.Consistent with the phased approaches of Cambridge and Boston, we made the decision to begin work again after we were sure that we could bring the necessary workforce back on campus in a manner consistent with the recommendations of the CDC, state, and local officials regarding best practices for limiting exposure to the virus on campus.Having said that, it is important to note that one of the most effective safety tools we have is the one that we instituted in March by reducing the density of people on our campus. By working and learning remotely, our students, faculty, and staff are playing an enormous role in making it safer for the workers who are on campus. Until repopulating the University becomes safe again, maintaining that social distancing is one of the best things we can do to protect our community. “Each project requires its own solutions, and our team is working with our contractors to confirm implementation of appropriate safety guidelines that are tailored to the needs of each specific site.” — Petrina Garbarinilast_img read more

Japan Olympic Committee official urges Tokyo 2020 delay

first_img Loading… “Unlike other sporting events, the Olympics symbolise the ideal that sports bring about world peace,” she said. The Olympics should not be held “if people across the world can’t enjoy themselves,” she said. “What I’m most scared of is that we force an opening and have people question the Olympics, asking, ‘Why only the Olympics’?” she said. The Tokyo Olympics should be postponed, according to a senior member of the Japan Olympic Committee, adding her voice to a growing chorus calling for Tokyo 2020 to be delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The coronavirus has played havoc with Olympic qualification “It should be postponed under the current situation where athletes can’t be well prepared,” Kaori Yamaguchi, a JOC executive board member, told the Nikkei daily in an interview published on Friday. Yamaguchi, who won a bronze medal for judo at the 1988 Seoul Olympics, is the first JOC board member to call openly for a postponement of the Tokyo Games. The coronavirus pandemic has killed nearly 10,000 globally and played havoc with the international sporting calendar, raising doubts about whether the Games can open as scheduled on July 24. Organisers have scrapped qualifiers and scaled back test events, while many countries have imposed travel bans. The International Olympic Committee, which will take the final decision on whether to proceed as scheduled, has voiced its commitment to the Games going ahead. Yamaguchi criticised the IOC stance, saying the body “is putting athletes at risk.” “By asking them to train under these conditions, the IOC is opening itself up the criticism that it is not putting athletes first,” Yamaguchi told the newspaper.

Yamaguchi said she plans to argue her position when the JOC meets Friday next week, the business daily added. Her comments came as the Olympic flame was landing in Japan to a muted reception as organisers have scaled back events surrounding the torch relay due to the virus.

Ohio Crop Tour follow-up

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest To follow up on our I-75/I-71 Ohio Crop Tour, we got some of the actual yields from the fields we sampled in August. Below you can see how well (or how poorly) we did with our yield estimates.County, Actual yield, Crop tour estimate in AugustCrawford: 240, 231Darke: 164, 217Delaware: 168, 204Defiance: 105, 113Fairfield: 171, 175Franklin Co.: 176, 146Hancock: 220, 200Henry: 158, 159Highland: 179, 210Madison: 228, 186Medina: 150, 160Miami: 202, 190Paulding: 90, 70Pickaway: 220, 235Preble: 200, 234Putnam: 96, 119Ross: 205, 203Wood: 117, 136Wyandot: 195, 186Van Wert: 110, 98The combined numerical tour average was 175 bushels on the August crop tour. The formula used is accurate plus or minus 30 bushels for the areas of the fields sampled. The terrible conditions in northwest Ohio, we believed, would pull down the total average of the state, however. The group consensus in August was 166 bushels for a 2015 state average based on what we saw with extremely poor conditions in so much of northwest Ohio and many unseen holes in fields from early wet conditions throughout the state. We didn’t not reduce the yield enough, however. Ohio’s final 2015 average corn yield (released Jan. 12) was 153 bushels per acre, down 23 bushels from last year. The USDA’s final national average corn yield is 168.4 for 2015.last_img read more

Parliament of Things

first_imgIn a resolution adopted Tuesday, the European Parliament officially endorsed the development of the Internet of Things. This resolution frankly encourages the development of an Internet of Things in the European Union. It even calls on the European IoT Commission to “secure co-financing for the implementation of these technologies” and “continue funding pilot projects.” The resolution also sets out instructions to factor in issues of privacy while building out the European IoT. “(The European Parliament) takes the view that the development of new applications and the actual functioning and business potential of the Internet of Things will be intrinsically linked to the trust European consumers have in the system, and points out that trust exists when doubts about potential threats to privacy and health are clarified”Resolution author Maria Badia i Cutchet, member of the European Parliament from Spain, said “information and communication technologies are important in that they promote social development and economic growth and encourage research, innovation and creativity among European public and private bodies.”However, the resolution also directs the Commission on IoT to make an exhaustive survey of the effects of this technology on “health, privacy and data protection.” It was further instructed to ensure that users have the option to use products that are not connected equipped for Internet connection.Fabrice Epelboin, the editor of ReadWriteWeb France and a European digital entrepreneur, sees the EUP move as a corrective to the more restrictive attitudes of the individual states. “The willingness of the EU parliament to help bring consumer awareness to the IoT is obviously a good thing. From a French POV, it stresses the gap between a local government which sees the Internet as a bad thing and is building a repressive digital regime and a European level political leadership who obviously has a clear vision on technologies.“‘Censorship, filtering and surveillance should not be practiced,’” he said, quoting the press release that accompanied the resolution. “This is precisely the opposite of what is taking place as we speak in France, showing how Europe is in its infancy and needs more power over the states if technology is to have a future here”Andrew Lyons, an American web developer and online media strategist in the U.K., warns that given people’s confusion about something as “simple” as Facebook privacy settings, IoT privacy needs to be simplified. “A real set of consumer-controlled standards needs to be established, so those opting into data-chip products have the ability to view exactly what is being shared about them from with outside sources and to choose how much of it actually goes out. A solution could be found in both the OpenID and microformat movements.” Tags:#international#Internet of Things#web curt hopkins 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts last_img read more

Joseph Lstiburek Surprises Passive House Conference Attendees

first_imgWhy did he say that? “I’m a conservation guy, not a renewables guy.” In the end, that’s what explains his interest in the Passive House program, I believe. The R-2000 program had unrealistic expectationsFollowing that introduction, Joe launched into the work he did in the early ’80s building superinsulated houses. He explained that he was using the Perfect Wall idea first published by N.B. Hutcheon (a Canadian, of course) in 1964. He discussed the R-2000 program in Canada and how it became a boutique program because of unrealistic expectations.He also showed a lot of photos of his early projects and the failures they had to work through. My favorite was the house where they were going to embed ducts in the slab and then had to fight to get them to stay down as they floated in the wet concrete. That must have been a fun day! It’s also one of the reasons that Joe loves scotch so much.The reason he was doing that work in the early ’80s, though, is that he did NOT quit the profession. In 1980, after hitting a low point in his life, he was living in his mother’s basement and ready to quit and do something different. Then he went to hear Amory Lovins speak in Toronto and got inspired to redouble his efforts. We’re lucky that he did because his work and his company, Building Science Corporation, have helped to blaze the trail for those of us who came afterward. Does he or doesn’t he?Joe and his colleague, Professor John Straube, have been critical of the Passivhaus program. In his article, Just Right and Airtight, Joe wrote, “The group that really has me confused are the Passivhaus folks who are pushing 0.6 [email protected]” In the next paragraph, he wrote:“Have you any idea how difficult it is to get to 0.6 [email protected] Pa? The number doesn’t seem to be based on anything that makes any sense. It is less than half the R-2000 number [1.5 [email protected] Pa] that didn’t make any sense. What I have been more or less able to figure out is that the 0.6 [email protected] Pa doesn’t come from any energy conservation rationale directly; it seems to be based on the need to prevent moisture problems in highly insulated building enclosures. That is the argument for the number 0.6 [email protected] Pa as I understand it. Never mind that the number, in itself, makes no sense as you can easily design highly insulated building closures without moisture problems that are not anywhere that tight.”He didn’t really raise this issue in his talk, and I think that caught some people off guard. One person told me afterward he was disappointed in the talk because Joe seemed too nice toward the program. He wasn’t sure that Joe was sincere. I guess I can see how someone might think that if they know of his previous criticism and then hear the talk, but when I put it all in context, it does make sense. Comparing Passivhaus Homes to Other Low-Energy HomesJoe Lstiburek’s Airtightness GoalsSolar Versus Superinsulation: A 30-Year-Old DebateThe History of Superinsulated Houses in North America A historical perspective on the Passivhaus standardFirst, the history. Joe went way back and started by saying that the igloo built by Eskimos was the first passive house. It uses ice, with an R-value of 2 per inch, but with very thick walls. It has an air-lock entry to minimize infiltration. It has minimal glazing. And, Canuck Joe said, it’s Canadian!Jumping to modern times, Joe discussed the history of energy efficiency and mentioned that that efficiency movement split into two camps back in the ’70s: those who pushed for superinsulated houses and the advocates of passive solar, or “mass and glass,” as Joe called it. (The passive solar camp has since turned into the renewables camp, with a great emphasis on converting solar energy into electricity with photovoltaics.)Back in the ’70s, though, that camp was focused on capturing the heat from the sun in all kinds of ways. Joe mentioned a few and said, “If you need something like rock-bed heat storage, you’ve made a mistake.” At the 2012 Passive House Conference in Denver, Dr. Joseph Lstiburek gave the keynote address for the opening plenary (or plenum, as Henry Gifford would say) session. His words, clever as always, added some nice historical perspective to what the Passive House folks are doing but also caught some people off guard.Read on, and I’ll tell you more about that. RELATED ARTICLES “We’re family”First, Joe is a conservation guy, and Passivhaus is an extreme conservation program.Second, Joe invited Katrin Klingenberg to speak at Building Science Summer Camp this year, and he gave an impassioned plea at the end of her talk not to let the Passivhaus program become a boutique program like R-2000 had.Third, I was hanging out with Joe and Kat the night before his talk (and drinking plenty of scotch), and I can tell you that he really does have a great interest in and affection for the Passivhaus program.You can find another clue to where he stands on this issue in a comment he made during the annual crawl space Twitterview at Building Science Summer Camp this year.Asked if Passivhaus is an asinine program, he responded, “No, you just need to keep the good parts of Passivhaus and change the bad parts. And it needs to evolve. A boutique program that impacts a few hundred homes doesn’t solve anything.”Joe concluded his talk by saying, “We’re family,” and he meant it.I’d like to hear more about where he thinks the Passivhaus standard should go, especially regarding the issue of air leakage, but the substance of his talk didn’t surprise me. What did surprise me, however, was that he gave his whole talk without a single F-bomb!

No separate national flag or constitution for Nagas, says interlocutor

first_imgThe Centre will conclude the Naga peace process by October 31 and there will be no separate national flag or constitution for the Nagas, interlocutor R.N. Ravi told The Hindu.Accusing National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Isak-Muivah) [NSCN-IM] of delaying the talks, Mr. Ravi said, “Endless negotiation under the shadow of guns is not acceptable.”Mr. Ravi said the NSCN-IM, with which the Centre signed a framework agreement on August 3, 2015 to find a solution to the Naga issue, had adopted a “procrastinating attitude to delay the settlement, raising the contentious symbolic issues of separate Naga national flag and constitution.”Mr. Ravi, who is also Nagaland’s Governor, said the Naga political movement belongs to the Naga people and the civil society groups had given their opinion clearly. He said a “mutually agreed draft comprehensive settlement, including all the substantive issues and competencies, is ready for inking the final agreement”, and it has the blessings of the Church.Also Read Tribal groups push for early settlement of Naga political issue Details of 2015 Naga agreement emerge  Mr. Ravi shared the details of the 2015 framework agreement signed with NSCN-IM and the 2017 agreement signed with the armed Naga National Political Groups (NNPGs) with the delegation on Friday.“The two agreements do not mention any separate flag or constitution for the Nagas… NSCN-IM has been misleading and lying to the people. It only talks of power sharing. I read out the details in front of the civil society groups, they have made up their mind to conclude the process,” Mr. Ravi said.A statement issued by Mr. Ravi’s office said, “Political maturity and wisdom of the Naga leaders who expressed their overwhelming support in favour of a settlement without any further delay is deeply appreciated. Respecting the Naga people’s wishes, the Government of India is determined to conclude the Peace Process without delay. Endless negotiation under the shadow of guns is not acceptable.”NSCN-IM has been fighting for ‘Greater Nagaland’ or Nagalim — it wants to extend Nagaland’s borders by including Naga-dominated areas in neighbouring Assam, Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh — to unite 1.2 million Nagas. Centre has said there will be no disintegration of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and Manipur to merge the Naga inhabited areas with the existing State of Nagaland.  “Naga people are represented by their traditional tribal apex bodies, village headmen, civil society groups etc…. they have collectively taken a decision for the first time on one platform. We have a written endorsement from them to go ahead and conclude the peace process,” Mr. Ravi said.Asked if the peace deal would be signed without the NSCN-IM, Mr. Ravi said, “I would expect that since the Nagas have expressed their voice, the NSCN should heed the voice.”Details sharedOn Friday, Mr. Ravi held detailed consultations for over three hours with the apex leadership of all the 14 Naga tribes of Nagaland, all the minority non-Naga tribes of Nagaland, the Nagaland GB Federation, the Nagaland Tribes Council, the Church leaders and civil society organizations in Kohima.Also Readlast_img read more
