Political consensus urgent to protect human rights Ban tells opening session of

“I appeal to the Human Rights Council to unite behind early, practical steps to support national actors in promoting and protecting human rights. Early action on human rights helps to strengthen national sovereignty, rather than challenge or resist it,” Mr. Ban said via video message at the opening of the three-day High-Level Segment of the 47-member body’s 28th session.“The world faces serious violations of human rights, from discrimination and inequality to oppression and violent extremism. Our shared challenge is to do far more to keep these and other abuses from occurring in the first place,” added the Secretary-General, who was joined by the Council’s President, Joachim Rucker, and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein. The Council also heard statements from the President of The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, the Prime Minister of Fiji and dignitaries from 20 States who spoke about their concerns regarding the situation in a number of countries around the world and outlined some of the efforts their countries were undertaking in the promotion and protection of human rights. Mr. Ban called the protection and realization of human rights “intrinsic to the entire agenda of the United Nations” and underscored the role of capacity-building, monitoring and reporting including through the work of the Human Rights Up Front Initiative. “The conflict in Syria offers just one example where early United Nations efforts to address human rights violations might have averted a human and political catastrophe,” he said, emphasizing that Member States must do their part to generate this “much-needed shift” in the way they work. Also addressing the Council for the first time since taking his post last year, High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said the world must be “completely principled and cunning in its collective attempt to defang” violent extremists. “For us, international humanitarian law and international human rights law cannot be trifled with or circumvented, but must be fully observed,” Mr. Zeid stressed, saying how even though the UN Charter was established 70 years ago, with alarming regularity, human rights are disregarded, and violated, sometimes to a shocking degree.States claim exceptional circumstances, he said. “They pick and choose between rights. One Government will thoroughly support women’s human rights and those of the LGBT communities, but will balk at any suggestion that those rights be extended to migrants of irregular status. Another State may observe scrupulously the right to education, but will brutally stamp out opposing political views. A third State comprehensively violates the political, civil, economic, social and cultural rights of its people, while vigorously defending the ideals of human rights before its peers.” “Some of the evidence may be hidden. But the reality, in far too many countries, of massacres and sexual violence; crushing poverty; the exclusive bestowal of health-care and other vital resources to the wealthy and well-connected; the torture of powerless detainees; the denial of human dignity – these things are known,” he said, adding: “And delegates, they are what truly make up a State’s reputation; together with the real steps – if any taken to prevent abuses and address social inequalities.”The High-Commissioner said he is “disturbed deeply” by the disregard displayed by several States towards the Council’s independent experts – and also by the reprisals and smear campaigns that are all too frequently exercised against representatives of civil society. The only real measure of a Government’s worth is not its place in the solemn ballet of grand diplomacy. Rather it is the extent to which it is sensitive to the needs – and protects the rights – of its nationals and other people who fall under its jurisdiction, Mr. Zeid said, calling on Member States to align their actions with the recommendations of the Human Rights Council. As an inter-governmental body within the UN, the Council is responsible for strengthening the protection of human rights worldwide and for addressing situations of human rights violations and make recommendations on them.Mr. Zeid commended the work of all staff of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), particularly those who work in situations of daily danger. He expressed dismay to learn that “because of lack of will by Member States,” the UN is not in a position to make adequate provision for support to staff that are injured in high-risk missions, or to the families of staff-members who have been killed in such circumstances. “Frankly, this is appalling and I appeal to all of you to change it,” he said. Also addressing the Council, via video message, General Assembly President Sam Kutesa said that Member States bear the primary responsibility to protect their citizens and provide them with internationally agreed upon human rights. It is essential therefore that the Council take this into account when dealing with rights challenges and utilize the Universal Periodic Review mechanism. “In recent times around the world, we have witnessed an unsettling rise in many forms of intolerance, discrimination and prejudice. These behaviours have culminated in a wide range of negative outcomes; including stereotyping, stigmatization, exclusion, threats and even extreme violence,” he said. Mr. Kutesa called on the Human Rights Council to focus more on social and economic rights and in particular, the right to development, as these are pivotal to the attainment of an acceptable standard of living in the most economically challenges parts of the world. “As we formulate a new, transformative development framework this year at the United Nations, we must bear in mind the inextricable link between development and human rights,” he added. read more

TAKRAF to highlight new primary and secondary sizers at Bauma 2016

first_imgWith hundreds of complete systems, as well as individual machines, having been supplied to clients all over the world, Tenova TAKRAF is a key supplier of equipment and systems for open pit mining and bulk handling. TAKRAF’s product portfolio has recently been enhanced with the addition of sizer equipment, which now enables the company to integrate its own crushing machines into complete mining solutions for its clients. The new primary and secondary sizers will be featured at the company’s stand at Bauma 2016.TAKRAF offers standardised primary and secondary sizers for various crushing applications. The primary sizer product range covers inlet sizes from 2.5 m to 4.0 m with a throughput of up to 10,000 t/h; whereas the secondary sizer range covers inlet sizes from 2.0 m to 4.0 m with a throughput of up to 3,500 t/h. Both sizer product ranges are suitable for the comminution of all material types, from standard to most challenging.The group states: “A key differentiating factor of TAKRAF’s sizers is the fact that special focus and attention was directed towards attributes such as ease of maintenance, reduced downtime and long equipment service life already during the sizer’s initial development. As a result, this sizers offer unparalleled levels of maintenance efficiency and service life. Some of the innovative solutions adopted include the quick and easy changing of crushing segments, as well as the use of advanced wear resistant materials such as hard-faced segments and tungsten picks. Other innovative solutions include an inching drive for roll maintenance, which increases safety significantly, a heavy duty drivetrain system; as well as adopting an efficient oil lubrication system with a view to greater environmental sustainability.”Rock fragmentation and abrasion are critical elements with regards to material characterisation for sizer use. TAKRAF has in-house test facilities in Germany where it is able to conduct material tests across a wide variety of conditions. Determination of material crushability and wear behavior can thus be analysed by specialised test machines, the results of which can then be employed to assist in sizer selection. Furthermore customised wear predictions of the crushing tools can also be determined.last_img read more

New fire station sparks inspiration for kids

first_imgFour-year-old Sadie Wehling loves to pretend to put out fires and rescue relatives. When her family drives by a fire station, she asks “What’s in there?”That curiosity led her and many other hopeful firefighters to Vancouver Fire Department’s Fire Station 2 on Saturday, blipping around a crowd of more than 50 who attended its grand opening. Fire Station 2 is one of a pair of new, upgraded facilities that opened near downtown this weekend with smarter alarm systems, traffic control and a combined $15 million price tag.Even with those bells and whistles, the youngest generation was all about the classics. Kids wore red, plastic fire helmets and suited up in firefighter costumes. They explored the ins and outs of fire engines and met the real men and women who use them. They helped Mayor Anne McEnerny-Ogle cut the station’s ribbon, after she thanked the community for its support and the firefighters for their work.“Our firefighters are beloved and revered in our community, and rightfully so,” she said. “These are the brave men and women that every day rescue our loved ones, save our property and our belongings, and (respond to) every other kind of emergency you can imagine.”It was a sentiment that drove many young families to attend the grand opening. Kneeling near Fire Station 2’s bay door with daughter Sadie, Amanda Wehling said attending the event helped her daughter envision what daily life was like for the men and women who respond to those emergencies.last_img read more

Kodiak bears found to switch to eating elderberries instead of salmon as

first_img © 2017 Phys.org Kodiak bears track salmon runs in Alaska , Ecosystems , Nature This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. The Kodiak Archipelago is a group of islands off the southern coast of Alaska. It is home to what are known as Kodiak bears—very large brown bears distantly related to polar bears. The bears have become famous due to pictures of them catching salmon in shallow rivers. The archipelago is also home to elderberries, which are also eaten by Kodiak bears. But the researchers with this new effort have found that the feeding habits of the bears are changing due to a warming climate.To learn more about how the bears are adapting to changing temperatures, the researchers used time-lapse cameras to capture the bears feeding on salmon, placed GPS collars on 36 of the females and then tracked them, conducted aerial surveys and studied bear droppings. The researchers discovered that the bears are increasingly faced with whether to eat salmon or elderberries because the berries are ripening earlier, causing an overlap with salmon spawning.In the past, the researchers note, salmon spawning typically occurred around the end of July each year, while elderberries typically ripened in late August. The bears would wade into shallow rivers and grab the spawning salmon and eat them (or just their eggs) on the shore. Then, a month later, the berries would ripen, and they would start eating those. But over the past few decades, there has been a change—elderberries have begun to ripen earlier, sometimes as early as late July. This means the bears are faced with a choice: continue to feast on the salmon or switch to eating the berries. The decision by the bears is obvious, the team reports—when the berries ripen early, the bears completely abandon the rivers and feast almost exclusively on the elderberries.It is not clear at this time how the switch will impact the bears, the salmon or other creatures that normally feed on fish carcasses abandoned by the bears. More information: William W. Deacy et al. Phenological synchronization disrupts trophic interactions between Kodiak brown bears and salmon, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (2017). DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1705248114AbstractClimate change is altering the seasonal timing of life cycle events in organisms across the planet, but the magnitude of change often varies among taxa [Thackeray SJ, et al. (2016) Nature 535:241–245]. This can cause the temporal relationships among species to change, altering the strength of interaction. A large body of work has explored what happens when coevolved species shift out of sync, but virtually no studies have documented the effects of climate-induced synchronization, which could remove temporal barriers between species and create novel interactions. We explored how a predator, the Kodiak brown bear (Ursus arctos middendorffi), responded to asymmetric phenological shifts between its primary trophic resources, sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) and red elderberry (Sambucus racemosa). In years with anomalously high spring air temperatures, elderberry fruited several weeks earlier and became available during the period when salmon spawned in tributary streams. Bears departed salmon spawning streams, where they typically kill 25–75% of the salmon [Quinn TP, Cunningham CJ, Wirsing AJ (2016) Oecologia 183:415–429], to forage on berries on adjacent hillsides. This prey switching behavior attenuated an iconic predator–prey interaction and likely altered the many ecological functions that result from bears foraging on salmon [Helfield JM, Naiman RJ (2006) Ecosystems 9:167–180]. We document how climate-induced shifts in resource phenology can alter food webs through a mechanism other than trophic mismatch. The current emphasis on singular consumer-resource interactions fails to capture how climate-altered phenologies reschedule resource availability and alter how energy flows through ecosystems.Press release Explore further Journal information: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Brown bear mother and cub.

Little Theatre Group presents Englishlanguage premiere of Three

first_imgMany years after they met in high school, three women get together to remember the old days. They have gone in separate directions, and their grudges have fermented with time. But there is one thing they all have in common that transcends their feuds and competition: None has a child, and all three want one.This is the premise of “Three,” a play by Spanish dramatist Juan Carlos Rubio, but it is how the women decide to solve this problem that makes the play so endearing. Seeking to conceive, the women use manipulation, bribery, and an old yearbook to secure the right father – but just when you think you know where the story is heading, a series of plot twists intervenes.This weekend, The Little Theatre Group (LTG) presents a newly translated English version of the play. But how did such an obscure play find its way here? And what compelled Costa Rica’s only English-language theater company to produce it?“It’s a funny story,” says Annette Hallett, LTG’s producer, with a chuckle.Originally from Great Britain, Hallett lived for years in Bermuda with her husband Bruce before the couple moved to Costa Rica. Earlier this year, Bermuda veteran Cleo Pettitt visited the Halletts for three weeks. Pettitt is a scene and costume designer, so the Halletts took her to a play in San José called “100 Square Meters.”“Although I couldn’t understand a word of it,” remembers Hallett, “I really enjoyed it.”The Spanish-language play took place at the Vargas Calvo Theater and was produced by TICTAK Theater Company. The play is an offbeat comedy, much like “Three,” about a couple trying to buy real estate, but they must wait for the current tenant to die.After the show, Pettitt mentioned that she knew the playwright and could contact him easily. The Halletts were delighted, and they began a correspondence with Rubio, using Google Translate to compose their emails and translate his replies. As it turned out, Rubio had a play called “Tres” that had never been performed in English. (You can find a NSFW poster of a past production on Rubio’s website.)“I told him, if we can do it professionally, we will,” said Hallett.Rubio is not a household name in Costa Rica, but he is an accomplished actor and has written extensively for Spanish television. For Spanish-speaking theatergoers, “100 Square Meters” was a hit, receiving a lot of good word from critics and patrons. Rubio’s work has been performed around the world, but to see two Costa Rican productions of his plays in one year is landmark.LTG tested the play at the International Book Fair in August. The production starred Silvia Baltodano, Antoinette Van Belle, Chusi Castillo Hidalgo, and Ricardo Jiménez and was directed by Noel Montagano. (Most of the cast remains intact for this production). The free show was performed twice during the fair.“Backstage, I was nervous,” remembers Hallett. “I started to wonder if we’d made the wrong decision.”Indeed, “Three” has some raunchy language and subject matter. The characters smoke pot, drink heavily, and talk frankly about sex and pregnancy. Hallett was concerned how a Costa Rican audience would respond to topics like extramarital trysts and artificial insemination – not to mention a colorful range of vituperate language. Meanwhile, there was some concern about whether a Spanish play, no matter how well translated, would make as much sense in English.But audiences responded well: The house was packed, the show earned a lot of laughs, and comments afterward were resoundingly positive. Hallett and her LTG colleagues felt vindicated, and they decided to produce a ticketed version in November.For Hallett, the decision to produce “Three” expands LTG’s possibilities.“We could just do the classics – Broadway, West End,” she says. “Or we have the opportunity to do new works that are directed to the culture in which we live. Our mission has always been to open up theater to Costa Rica. That’s what I want to do.”“Three” will be performed Nov. 21-23 at ADILA, La Asunción de Belén. Fri., 8 p.m.; Sat. & Sun., 2:30 p.m. 6,000 ($12). Info: LTG Facebook page.
