Marking Day of Families Ban urges support during heavy toll of crisis

“This year’s International Day of Families falls at a time of upheaval and tragedy for families around the world,” the UN chief said in his message for the Day. “Even in relatively stable societies, families still struggle with violence, discrimination and poverty.” The theme of this year’s Day – “Families, healthy lives and sustainable future – highlights the importance of the role of families and family policies in promoting healthy lives and the well-being of everyone at all ages. Activities for this year’s Day – which is marked worldwide on 15 May – will focus on issues relating to family environments and work-family balance to improve health outcomes for all family members, as well as on the role of parents in youth and children’s well-being, with particular attention to the role of men, as well as intergenerational transfers and the well-being of older adults. In his message, the Secretary-General noted that families are on the frontlines of global efforts to realize the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and are particularly essential to achieving Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3, in which all UN Member States committed to promoting healthy lives and well-being for all. “Children thrive when they receive love as well as health care, education and other basics,” Mr. Ban said. “During the sensitive time of adolescence, young people need emotional support along with reproductive health information and services. Young lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender people suffer much higher suicide rates than the general population, making their safety and acceptance a matter of public health,” he added. The Secretary-General highlighted that in many societies, women and girls experience discrimination and violence within the family, which can have serious and lifelong effects on their health and well-being. Family life is also crucial to the health of older people, who stay active and healthy when their contributions are appreciated in the family and community, he noted. Stressing that Governments must support the “crucial role of families in all their diverse forms,” the Secretary-General said they should provide access to reproductive health services so that parents can decide on the timing and size of their families. He added that maternal health care and paternal leave are also vital to enable parents to give their newborns the best possible start in life. “I call on Governments, businesses, institutions and other partners to recognize that caregiving is an essential part of family life. Everyone needs care from family members at some point in their lives – and all should be able to provide that care when the need arises,” Mr. Ban said. The Secretary-General also noted that promoting supportive family environments and positive parenting through policies and laws can help families raise healthy, happy children who can grow into valued, productive adults. “Leaving no one behind means leaving no family behind,” Mr. Ban said. “On this International Day of Families, let us resolve to advance sustainable development by creating a supportive environment where all family members of all ages can realize their potential to contribute to our world,” he concluded. The Day was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in 1993, reflecting the importance the international community attaches to families. The Day has also inspired a series of awareness-raising events, including national family days. In many countries, the occasion is an opportunity to highlight different areas of interest and importance to families. Activities include workshops and conferences, radio and television programmes, newspaper articles and cultural programmes highlighting relevant themes. read more

Commentary Ohio State football traditions will never resign

Ohio State football may not be scandal-free, but this column is. I am going to take a different approach with this football column: After this sentence, I promise not to use the words “scandal,” “suspension” or “violation.” It is clear that these terms have come to define the OSU football program lately, and they will surely continue to swirl once new reports and rulings are made in the coming weeks and months. But they will not define the program forever. On Sept. 3, 2011, a team of “silver bullets” will storm onto the pure, green turf of Ohio Stadium, and will be met by the roar of more than 100,000 Buckeye faithful. I cannot tell you confidently which players will be a part of that rush, but I can tell you six who will not. Regardless, Luke Fickell will lead an OSU football team against the Akron Zips on Sept. 3. At that point, at least for a few hours, those words that I have refused to write will be replaced by phrases like “field goal,” “first down” and “touchdown.” Fans will have the opportunity to complain about quarterback Joe Bauserman and how much they think Braxton Miller should be the starter. We can moan about punting on fourth and short, and jump up and down with excitement when running back Jordan Hall breaks free for a big gain. Along with the football action on the field, the Best Damn Band in the Land will perform “Script Ohio,” along with a surely entertaining halftime show. After what will most likely be a victory for the Buckeyes, students and fans will put their arms around one another and sing the words of “Carmen Ohio.” Fickell and the players will join in the sing-along. Even more so than when Woody Hayes was fired, the current circumstances of OSU’s football program have tarnished its reputation. It is no doubt a big, black eye, and it is likely to get worse before it gets better. But bruises do heal ­— it may take several years, but Buckeye football will recover. Jim Tressel and Hayes were not bigger than the program, and both were held accountable for their actions. No matter what else becomes of the uncertainty surrounding the Buckeyes, “Script Ohio,” “Hang on Sloopy” and the other meaningful rituals that occur Saturdays in the Horseshoe will live on. I think I speak for most of Buckeye Nation when I say these times cannot come soon enough. At the end of the day, these traditions will never be forced to resign. read more

Some heritage sites cannot be preserved and should be allowed to decay

first_imgWe should “let go” of some of the country’s most prided heritage sites and leave them to decay “gracefully”, a leading British academic has said.Professor Caitlin DeSilvey has suggested that despite people’s “strong feelings” some perishing landmarks should be allowed to crumble because of climate change and falling budgets.”There is room to explore more creative approaches in how we care for heritage,” said Prof DeSilvey, who is an associate professor of cultural geography at the University of Exeter.”What happens if we choose not to intervene? What possibilities emerge when change is embraced rather than resisted? What if we allow things to become ruins? “Processes of decay and disintegration can be culturally – as well as ecologically – productive, but we also need to recognise that people have very strong feelings about these places, and those need to be considered as well.”The National Trust gave £466,918 for works on St Michael’s Mount in 2015/16 – the Cornish island which is home to a medieval church and castle – and £183,350 on the Grade I-listed Croughton Court in Warwickshire.It spent £72m overall in 2015/16, which was more than 10 per cent of the year’s £541m expenditure, on property projects.Prof DeSilvey cites the former atomic weapons testing facility at Orford Ness in Suffolk as a flagship example.The shingle spit, which was a secret military base for the Ministry of Defence during the Second World War and the Cold War but is now a nature reserve, is managed by the Trust through a policy of “continued ruination”.”Orford Ness is an interesting case because it shows that we don’t always have to associate ruination with failure and neglect,” she said.”Where the process of physical decay is going on, and nature is moving in, we can try to see this in a positive light and ask ourselves what we can learn from those changes.”The National Trust also spends an average £1,500 each week on maintaining and protecting Mullion Harbour in Cornwall from increasingly powerful winter storms.”One way to think about places like Mullion is to consider how we could mark the ‘afterlife’ of the harbour by re-using its materials in other structures, and remembering its passing in that way,” she said.

Kippers are making a comeback claim supermarkets as younger generation embraces high

Kippers are making a comeback, supermarkets have claimed, as younger people embrace the healthy, sustainable breakfast food.Once a staple part of the morning meal, the humble kipper fell out of fashion and was shunned by many. Now, it is enjoying somewhat of a renaissance.New data from Waitrose supermarkets has shown a 6.5 per cent increase in kipper purchases over the last year, while Sainsbury’s has seen an over 100 per cent increase in searches for kipper products on its website in the same period. Jeremey Langley, Agriculture and Fisheries Manager at Waitrose & Partners said:  “Kippers were introduced as a breakfast delicacy back in the Edwardian days and were popular all the way up to the 1970s, before the crisis in the North Sea herring trade. Since then, their popularity has declined but we’re starting to see the first signs of a kipper renaissance.“High in protein, low in calories and packed with nutritional benefits – more of our customers are buying kippers as part of a well-rounded diet. Although the increases are fairly modest now, they are growing and we think kippers could be a big food trend again in the next two to three years.” Stephanie Vince, Buyer for Fish at Sainsbury’s, added: “Kippers are a brilliant option for those looking for something quick and easy to cook, and we’ve seen a number of our customers exploring this popular oily fish as they continue to look for alternative, lighter breakfast options. We’ve seen a 109% increase year on year of customers searching for kipper bags on our website, as we continue to develop a range of distinctive products that add convenience for our customers cooking dishes at home.”Independent fishmongers are also seeing an increase because they are a low-cost product and they are noted as a sustainable fish.Rex Goldsmith, who runs The Chelsea Fishmonger in London, said: “Kipper sales seem to be slowly on the increase. I love it when French or Spanish people come in to buy them (it’s traditionally been the older English).”Kipper are great because they are good for you, packed with flavour, inexpensive and herring stocks are good.” They are also having a resurgence on restaurant menus, with the top-placed restaurant in the Good Food Guide  L’Enclume in Grange-Over-Sands featuring kippers as a choice, and the third-placed Nathan Outlaw restaurant in Cornwall also serves the fish.

A Spotify MP3 store might not be a good idea

first_imgWhat’s next for Spotify? That’s the question posed in an invitation that was sent out today for an event slated for next Wednesday. It mentions “a new direction for the company,” but details are thin beyond that. While it may be a longshot, what if a Spotify music store is on its way? This may not be quite the grand slam decision that you may think it is.A Spotify Store doesn’t make a lot of sense. If you’re a paid subscriber, why would you want to buy music? The point of joining services like Spotify, Rdio, and Grooveshark in the first place is that you don’t have to bother with that any more. If you’re forking over $10 per month for all-you-can-eat streaming, you don’t want to buy additional songs or albums — especially when you could almost as easily get them from iTunes, Amazon MP3, or Google Music and import them to Spotify.This Spotify Music Store would be dangerous ground to walk. We already see popular songs often withheld from the streaming library, despite the rest of the album being available (see right). Making it that easy to buy missing tracks could lead to more labels and artists engaging in this practice. A Spotify Store could lead to a streaming library that has thousands of filler tracks you probably don’t want, with the best stuff requiring a series of 99¢ purchases.The frightening thing about this is that Spotify and the record labels would probably make more money with this model. Any MP3 sales are more than they’re getting now, and — now that the service has grown in popularity  — they could probably add something like this without facing too big of a mass exodus. It may lead to a more watered-down, fragmented streaming library for users, but it could mean bigger profits for Spotify and the record labels.Fortunately, services like Spotify aren’t just competing against Rdio, Rhapsody, iTunes, and Amazon MP3. They are also competing against an impossible opponent — The Pirate Bay. Many of Spotify’s customers are undoubtedly former pirates who are contributing money to the music industry for the first time in their lives. They do this not due to a moral awakening, but because it’s more convenient to pay Spotify $10 a month than it is to hunt down, upload, and sync a bunch of files. If Spotify gets too clever, many of their users would rather go back to their old ways than fall for a bait-and-switch.We may not need to worry about any of this though, as there are a million other things that Spotify could be announcing next week. They could be expanding their social features, issuing Google Music-like “letting your friends listen once” functionality, or offering some other unforeseen new implementation. Heck, they could even just be adding an iPad app.If the event does, however, have Spotify pulling back the curtain on a music store, let’s hope that the company is aware of the potential pitfalls that could lie down that road. It might end up hurting them just as much as it does their current customers.last_img read more

Sexually violent predator to be placed in home near Jacumba Hot Springs

He was found to be a sexually violent predator in 2009 and was committed to the Department of State Hospitals to undergo treatment.Last year, Smith petitioned the Superior Court to be released through the Conditional Release Program for sex offenders and, after a trial, Judge Howard Shore found Smith amenable to being released.David Jimenez, who currently lives near where Smith is going to reside on Desert Rose Ranch Road, told the judge he didn’t think it was fair that Smith was being placed in Jacumba Hot Springs. Jacumba Hot Springs is located in the far reaches of southeastern San Diego County.“I’m very uncomfortable,” Jimenez said outside court. “I do think Jacumba is a dumping ground for predators.”Jimenez, who is moving closer to the city of San Diego for health reasons, said another sexually violent predator lived in the same home on Desert Rose Ranch Road previously and caused no problems, but he believes Smith moving in will drop the value of his home as he tries to sell it.

Judge denies United States claim on 2 of 3 California immigration laws

first_img Posted: July 9, 2018 Judge denies United States claim on 2 of 3 California immigration laws July 9, 2018 SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – A federal judge has dismissed the federal government’s claim that U.S. law trumps two California laws intended to protect immigrants who are in the country illegally.The ruling by U.S. District Judge John Mendez follows his ruling last week that found California was within its rights to pass two of the three sanctuary laws.He ruled Monday that the federal government could proceed with its attempt to block part of a third California sanctuary law.Mendez rejected the U.S. government’s argument the U.S. Constitution gives the federal government pre-eminent power to regulate immigration. The Trump administration argued that California is obstructing its immigration enforcement efforts.He ruled last week that California cannot enforce a third law that prohibits employers from allowing immigration officials on their property without warrants.

Senators want to know when theyve been hacked

first_img Post a comment Share your voice Senators want an annual report on cyberattacks affecting the governing body.  Angela Lang / CNET When a company is hacked, you’ll likely get an email warning you that your information might have been stolen. But when your senator is hacked, it could remain a secret forever. Two senators are hoping to change that.Unlike companies and federal agencies, Congress has no legal obligation to disclose breaches, meaning that the public has no idea when elected officials are hit by cyberattacks. Senators are some of the most popular targets for hackers.In 2017, then-Senate Sergeant at Arms Frank Larkin said “the Senate is considered a prime target for cybersecurity breaches” during a Senate hearing. He said that in 2016, the Senate’s secure web gateway blocked more than 273 million connections to over 54,000 malicious websites targeting their internal network.  Politicians in general are frequent targets for hacks on both their professional and personal accounts. If the attacks are successful, you usually only find out about it through media reports or leaked documents. The last time a Congressional computer breach was publicly disclosed was in 2009, when then-Florida Sen. Bill Nelson announced his personal computers were compromised. In a letter signed by Sen. Ron Wyden, a Democrat from Oregon, and Sen. Tom Cotton, a Republican from Arkansas, the senators ask Senate Sergeant at Arms Michael Stenger to provide an annual report on the number of times Senate computers have been hacked, and incidents where hackers were able to access sensitive Senate data.The letter also calls for Stenger to inform the Senate committees on Rules and Intelligence about any breaches within five days of discovery. The hope is that if this information is regularly disclosed, senators would start taking their cybersecurity more seriously.”Each US senator deserves to know and has a responsibility to know, if and how many times Senate computers have been hacked, and whether the Senate’s existing cybersecurity measures are sufficient to protect both the integrity of this institution and the sensitive data with which it has been entrusted,” the letter reads.

These EcoFriendly Jackets Are Stuffed With Bison Fur

first_img Despite what you may have seen on Futurama, you can’t actually buy a car that has seats stuffed with eagle down. You can, however, buy jackets and vests that are insulated with the fur of another iconic American animal.The bison’s coat of hollow, resilient hair has always done a fantastic job of keeping the majestic animals warm. Now it can keep you warm, too!United By Blue wasn’t keen on utilizing goose down in its garments. CEO Brian Linton said that despite improvements “the down industry’s live plucking practices remain too controversial.” “We ventured into the world of synthetic insulation,” he added, “but were never able to find something we could truly stand behind both technically and environmentally.”AdChoices广告Five years ago they started working to create something better. It took numerous attempts to get the formulation just right. Ultimately UBB settled on a 50-50 mix of bison fur and polyester that they refer to as B100.The result of their efforts is a high-performance insulation that’s lightweight, packable, breathable, and hypoallergenic. The company is proud of their creation for more than just technical reasons. B100 is also very eco-friendly.The polyester is 100 percent recycled and the bison fur is actually waste that’s salvaged from the ranching industry. UBB built its supply chain from the ground up, but that’s nothing new for the Philadelphia-cased company.Founded in 2010, United By Blue has always aimed to make a positive impact on the environment. The company has been removing one pound of trash from the world’s oceans and waterways for every item sold. In just under 8 years of cleanup they’re now closing on the 1.5 million pound mark.They’ve also achieved B Corporation certification, which is no mean feat. B Corps have to meet rigid standards for “social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability” and maintain a balance between “profit and purpose.”More on Vegan Shoes Are Made from Recycled Coffee Grounds8 Eco Brands Reimagining Fashion’s FutureThe North Face Turned Recyclables from National Parks Into Clothing Hydrogen-Powered Plane Can Fly 20 Passengers Up to 500 MilesEating Less Meat Can Fight Climate Change, According to UN Report Stay on targetlast_img read more
