UN bestplaced to tackle global problems in todays world – Ban Kimoon

“Global problems demand global solutions. And the United Nations is, truly, the world’s only global institution,” Mr. Ban said in an address to a Town Hall Meeting organized by the World Affairs Council. He acknowledged polls showing a majority of United States citizens think the UN is “doing a poor job,” but pointed out that “these same polls show that even larger majorities – 74 per cent to be exact – believe the United Nations should play a larger role in the world.” The Secretary-General, who took office in January, said he remains “very ambitious” in his goals for the world body. “Since day one I have set up my reform goals as my top priority, which includes putting this house in order to make the Organization more efficient, more effective and more relevant in the twenty-first century,” he told the approximately 1,300 participants attending a Town Hall meeting at the Fairmont Hotel. In addition to holding special significance for the UN, San Francisco is the first foreign city Mr. Ban visited in what would turn out to be a lifelong international career. Present in the audience was Mrs. Libba Patterson, who hosted the Secretary-General when he was a visiting student from the Republic of Korea. “I’m still very moved by what Mrs. Patterson, her husband and their children did for me,” he said. “They showered me with affection, love and kindness when I was just a very young Korean student who had never been in a foreign country.” For her part, Mrs. Patterson told the UN News Service that Mr. Ban “is as sincere now as he was when he was 18.” The Secretary-General’s trip to San Francisco, cite of the UN’s founding, is centred on not only honouring that significant past achievement but also highlighting the present efforts by California to address climate change. Prior to his address, the Secretary-General visited the War Memorial’s Opera House, site of the United Nations Conference on International Organization sessions, as well as the Herbst Theater, where the UN Charter was signed on 26 June 1945. There, he voiced hope that San Francisco’s role in forging the UN could be built on by launching new momentum on climate change.“San Francisco is the birthplace of the United Nations, which was created to save this world from the scourge of war. I’m here to discuss the future of our planet Earth, and this can become the birthplace of a new movement to save it for future generations,” he said. The issue of climate change is expected to feature prominently during meetings tomorrow that the Secretary-General will hold with California Governor Arnold Schwarzeneggar. 26 July 2007The United Nations is the best-placed organization for tackling problems in today’s interconnected world, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today, pledging reform measures to strengthen it further. read more

US Senator says China using debt to trap Sri Lanka

During his confirmation hearing for the position of deputy administrator of USAID Wednesday, Bonnie Glick agreed with the assessment of Senator Young, which is similar to that of USAID Administrator Mark Green. “China’s neocolonial hardball tactics and use of debt to force Sri Lanka to agree to a 99-year lease on a key port should be instructive to observers around the region, including Pakistan, Bangladesh and elsewhere,” Senator Todd Young said during a Congressional hearing Friday, the PTI news service reported. A US senator has said China is using debt to force Sri Lanka to agree to a 99-year lease on a key port.Senator Todd Young said that while the US focussed on building self-reliance, strategic and economic partners, China focussed on resource extraction and creation of dependence. In a June speech at the Brookings Institute, Green described it as “emergence of China’s mercantile authoritarian assistance programs”. China has shown little interest in adhering to the norms of debt sustainability or the principles of development assistance that we believe in, instead securing conditions in indebtedness, essentially mortgage a country’s future, Green had said then.“I agree wholeheartedly with Administrator Green in his assessment of the Chinese approach to foreign assistance, which at the end of the day is leading to tremendous debt burdens for the countries that are recipients of this Chinese largesse,” Glick said. “Importing labour from China and sometimes I understand importing substandard materials is a trap again. Countries aren’t getting economically developed the way they are through U.S. development assistance programs and Chinese laborers come and go,” Glick said. What USAID seeks to put forward is something that would be referred to as a clear choice that countries have the option, she said. Glick said it is very important that countries recognize what they are doing when they enter into a deal with the Chinese.Referring to the just concluded elections in Maldives, Glick said the island-nation has taken the turn away from China. “They just held elections, 90 per cent of eligible voters voted and 58 per cent of them voted for the opposition candidate who took an active pro-Western and anti-Chinese approach recognizing that he’s not interested in mortgaging the future of the citizens of the Maldives,” she said.During her confirmation hearing, both Yong and Glick expressed concern over China’s use of its own labour for overseas development projects. “That’s a great concern as well, because US development projects are focused on engaging with local employment providing economic growth opportunities for people who are resident citizens of those countries where development projects occur,” she said. read more

FedEx cost reduction plan can counter sluggish growth keeps year forecast despite

FedEx: cost reduction plan can counter sluggish growth; keeps year forecast despite 2Q decline by Samantha Bomkamp, The Associated Press Posted Dec 19, 2012 1:21 pm MDT NEW YORK, N.Y. – FedEx is more pessimistic about the U.S. economy than it was three months ago, but more assured of its own ability to grow earnings.The world’s second-largest package delivery company lowered its economic forecast for the U.S., saying that there remains a lot of uncertainty for the company and the country.Its forecast for the current quarter, which incorporates the critical holiday season, falls short of Wall Street expectations.But FedEx maintained its forecast for the full fiscal year ending in May, counting on a massive cost reduction plan and a slightly more optimistic view of growth overseas. Shares rose 2.6 per cent in afternoon trading.FedEx Corp. posted earnings of $438 million, or $1.39 per share for the quarter that ending in November, compared with $497 million, or $1.57 per share, a year ago. That was below the $1.41 per share that Wall Street was expecting, according to a poll of analysts by FactSet.Revenue rose to $11.1 billion from $10.6 billion previously, as the company scaled back its operation to better match demand and some of its raised rates. Analysts forecast revenue of $10.84 billion.Growth in the company’s freight and ground operations boosted results, but FedEx reported “persistent weakness” in its core express network. Operating income in that segment fell 33 per cent. FedEx and its larger rival UPS Inc. have both seen consumers and businesses opt for slower shipping options to cut costs.FedEx said on Wednesday that it expects earnings will be between $1.25 and $1.45 per share in the third quarter. Analysts that follow the company were predicting per-share earnings of $1.45.The company, based in Memphis, Tenn., also said it expects to earn between $6.20 and $6.60 per share for the year ending in May, excluding any charges from the company’s buyout plan. Wall Street is looking for $6.34.Earlier this month FedEx said it will offer some employees up to two years pay to leave, starting next year. The voluntary program is part of an effort to cut annual costs by $1.7 billion within three years. The plan also includes cutting aircraft and underused assets.

Union CEO group line up to oppose special treatment of big carrier

TORONTO – A group of CEOs and a major union are the latest to oppose any special treatment for U.S. company Verizon when it comes to buying small Canadian wireless companies and radiowaves used to operate the cellphone networks.The Canadian Council of Chief Executives and the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada say domestic and foreign companies should operate under the same level playing field as Canadian companies.Council president John Manley, whose group represents 150 chief executive officers from various industries, says favouring a foreign competitor over Canadian companies sets a bad precedent.Verizon, which has more than 100 million wireless customers, has said it’s eyeing the possibility of entering Canada.There have been reports that Verizon is planning to buy new carrier Wind Mobile while also is in talks with financially struggling Mobilicity — two of the new generation of wireless carriers competing with Rogers, Telus and Bell (TSX:BCE).In June, Ottawa blocked major carrier Telus (TSX:T) from buying Mobilicity and made it clear it wants four wireless competitors in every region.“One of the directors put it this way: We encourage Target to come into Canada, but we don’t tell Canadian Tire they have to give up 30 per cent of their shelf space to Target to help them get established,” Manley said Monday.“Because of the depth of Verizon’s pockets, they can easily buy up two of the four blocks. That leaves a Canadian player out of that spectrum… and spectrum is the oxygen for wireless communications.”The Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union is also opposed to any advantages the Harper government is offering New York-based Verizon Communications.“Granting one of the biggest companies in the world special rights to public airwaves (spectrum), to buy small players and to existing companies’ networks may be the most ill-conceived policy the Harper government has come up with,” CEP President Dave Coles said in a statement.“In its ideological crusade to open the telecommunications sector up to foreign ownership, the Conservatives are ‘gaming the rules’ in favour of a major US-based multinational.”Early next year, the federal government will hold an auction for 700 megahertz spectrum, a sought-after bandwidth frequency which allow telecommunications companies to rapidly transmit large amounts of data. The service will improve cellphone connections in rural areas as well as elevators, tunnels and other places where service is often spotty.Canada’s wireless carriers want to be able to bid for the same amount of wireless spectrum that Verizon will be able to bid on as a new player in Canada.Analysts have noted that current rules on the sale or transfer of radio waves don’t allow Bell, Rogers or Telus to bid on and win more than one block of spectrum, but this wouldn’t apply to new entrants such as Verizon.Foreign ownership restrictions have been removed for small wireless companies with less than a 10 per cent of the market, which opens the door for Verizon and other foreign companies to enter Canada. However, big carriers still can’t be more than one-third foreign owned.Manley noted there are three and four cellphone competitors already in many of Canada’s markets.“It’s hard to understand what the objective (of the government policy is). You’ve got pretty good pricing in Canada, certainly good compared to the U.S,” he said. “You’ve got high quality of product. You have competing infrastructures, you have an obligation to supply rural and remote communities, which is high cost. What exactly is the problem you are trying to solve?”The Globe and Mail reported that senior executives for Bell, Telus and Rogers (TSX:RCI.B) were in Ottawa Monday to meet with Industry Minister James Moore.A spokeswoman for Moore would not confirm who the meeting was with, only saying that the minister was privately “meeting with representatives from various sectors in the coming days and weeks.”Last week, the three telecom companies joined together in calling for Ottawa to change its policy on foreign ownership of small Canadian wireless companies. Together, they have about 25 million wireless customers.The three Canadian rivals say they have been put at an unfair disadvantage that allows foreign carriers like Verizon to buy small Canadian wireless carriers while denying them the same opportunity. by The Canadian Press Posted Jul 29, 2013 3:21 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Union, CEO group line up to oppose special treatment of big carrier Verizon read more

Iceland jails bank officials for Kaupthing fraud

first_imgTHREE FORMER DIRECTORS of the collapsed Icelandic bank Kaupthing were convicted for fraud by a Reykjavik court yesterday and sentenced to between three-a-half and five-and-half years in prison.The three men were convicted for hiding the fact that a Qatari investor used money loaned from Kaupthing to buy a 5.1 per cent stake in the bank right in the middle of the 2008 financial crisis.SentencingHreidar Mar Sigurdsson, the bank’s former CEO, was sentenced to five and a half years, while the former chairman of the bank, Sigurdur Einarsson, was given a five-year sentence and the former head of its Luxembourg subsidiary, Magnus Gumundsson – who played a key role in granting the loan – was given a three-and-half-year sentence.A major shareholder in the bank, Olafur Olafsson, who approved the loan, was also convicted and sentenced to three years in prison.All four were found guilty of violating their ethical obligations and of manipulating the country’s stock exchange.The cash injection from Qatari investor, Mohammed bin Khalifa al-Thani, in late September 2008 was hailed by the management as a sign that the bank was on a sound financial footing.But just weeks later the bank collapsed as a wave of financial panic triggered by the fall of the American commercial bank Lehman Brothers in mid-September led to capital markets world-wide to freeze up.The investor, al-Thani, was threatened with legal action for not re-paying the loan and settled the affair in a confidential deal with the bank’s liquidators in February 2013.Banking collapseIceland’s banking sector had ballooned out of proportion by 2008 compared to the size of the island’s economy, as the banks took out cheap loans abroad to fund a series of acquisitions.When international markets seized up and Icelandic banks collapsed, the country was forced to take a loan from the International Monetary Fund – the first by a western European country in more than two decades.A special tribunal later investigated the causes of the spectacular meltdown.In 2012 the country’s former Prime Minister Geir Haarde was cleared of all charges apart from neglecting to call his cabinet to discuss the collapse in time.The Icelandic banking sector is now divided into new institutions, confined to traditional banking activities, and the estates of failed banks which manage their debts, much of which has been bought by foreign investors at cut price.- © AFP, 2013Read: The leader of Iceland’s ‘Kitchenware Revolution’ reckons we have a thing or two to learn about protests>Read: Back again: Iceland re-elects the parties blamed for causing financial meltdown>last_img read more

Girl 11 dies after being struck by van near Daybreak Park

first_imgBATTLE GROUND — The family of an 11-year-old girl is reeling after she was struck and killed by a van north of Daybreak Park on Wednesday morning. Anthony Smith, 44, said that the day started like any other — his two daughters, 11-year-old Elizabeth and 10-year-old Cera, walked the 1,500 feet from their house to wait for the school bus near Northeast 82nd Avenue in the Battle Ground area. The girls were a grade apart at Daybreak Primary/Middle School, and Elizabeth loved tormenting her little sister, Smith said. “She was playing,” Smith said. “She was jumping around, and she went out into the road a little bit.”That’s when a silver minivan traveling south on 82nd Avenue struck Elizabeth, sending her down into a ditch, according to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.last_img read more

Paulsen says hell run to keep his Vancouver city council seat

first_imgVancouver City Councilor Erik Paulsen will seek to retain his seat in 2019, he announced Monday.Paulsen was appointed to his Position 2 seat by the city council, so by law he has to stand for election for the final two years of the term. He succeeded Alishia Topper, who was elected as Clark County’s treasurer.“I’m thrilled to have been unanimously chosen by the mayor and council in January to represent our community as a member of the Vancouver City Council,” Paulsen said in a press release. “I look forward to the opportunity to continue to serve our city.”Monday’s announcement kicks off Paulsen’s first campaign, though not his first bid to join the council. In February 2018, Paulsen was one of 56 applicants who sought to fill a vacant seat. He was a finalist for that position, which ended up going to Councilor Laurie Lebowsky.At the time, he called it a learning process. His second bid for council was more successful, beating out 17 applicants and five other finalists for Topper’s former seat. He was sworn in on Jan. 28, making him the city council’s newest member. Council members receive a salary of $24,060 per year. Council seats are nonpartisan.“With my business and government experience I believe I can bring a new perspective that will value all voices in the process,” Paulsen said in the press release.last_img read more

Flat Earther Mad Mike back for the final cut will launch himself

first_imgRepresentation of flat earthScreengrab from YouTubeLast year, Mike Hughes, a popular flat earther better known by the name Mad Mike, propelled himself 1875 feet into California sky using his homemade rocket in an attempt to prove the earth is flat. Now, Mad Mike is again back in action and he is apparently planning to reach a higher altitude on Sunday, August 11.Mike Hughes’ attempt to reach an altitude of 5,000 feet will be filmed by the Science Channel for their upcoming series ‘Homemade Astronauts’. Hughes believes that reaching such an altitude using his homemade rocket will be a crucial step to prove that the earth is not spherical but a flat disc.Earlier, Mad Mike had revealed that his ultimate aim is to soar past the Karman Line, a boundary where the sky ends and space begins. Mike believes that crossing the Karman Line is essential to know the real shape of the earth.When compared to last year’s launch, the attempt on Sunday will be much riskier as Hughes is planning to blast himself more than twice as high into the sky before dropping back to Earth at a staggering speed of 643 kilometres per hour. It should be noted that Hughes had plummeted back to the earth in 2018 at a speed of 563 kilometres per hour.Even though dismissed by space agencies like NASA, flat earth theory is gaining popularity in all nooks of the globe. As per flat earth believers, the earth is not a globe but a flat disc protected by ice walls in Antarctica. These conspiracy theorists also argue that the images of earth released by NASA are all animated, and these pictures are intentionally trying to brainwash the general public.A few months back, former England cricket captain Andrew Flintoff had claimed that earth’s shape is like a turnip, and made it clear that he is obsessed with the Flat Earth concept.last_img read more

Samsung Goes Brave New World With 40Inch OLED Panel

first_img Samsung is currently limited to OLED panels up to 31-inches on its production lines. The show-stopping 40-inch panel was created on a pilot-line. The driver board is a low temperature poly-Si TFT. It is made by the super grain silicon technology without the use of lasers. The current mass production line is not tooled for the 40-inch panel. Nikkei Electronics reporter Takuya Otani, quotes a Samsung staffer saying, the RGB organic light emitting materials are formed by vapor deposits. A fine metal mask is employed. Fluorescent materials are used for red and green and phosphorescent materials are used for the color blue. In order to reduce variations in luminance, the panel incorporates a circuit that equalizes the current on the screen. The Samsung 40-inch OLED panel is a bottom emission type with a microcavity structure to improve the color gamut, added the staffer. In other news, Samsung showed off its 14.1-inch OLED TV and a 31-inch OLED TV during GITEX Technology Week in Dubai. According to Bo Joong Kim, General Manager of the AV Division of Samsung Gulf Electronics LTD, the finished products on display weigh 40-percent less than conventional HDTV LCD models. Moreover, the contrast ration is one million to one with a color gamut of 107-percent and brightness of 550 cd/m2. Samsung hopes to have mid-to-large size OLED TVs available to the consumer by 2010. Mr. Kim says, “OLED TVs represent greater technology innovation and set a new standard for TV sophistication.” Currently, the significant cost to consumers for small screen OLED TVs presents a barrier to average consumers. The Sony EXL-1, an 11-inch OLED is priced in the neighborhood of $2500. LG and others have joined the OLED band-wagon. A great deal can happen in the next couple of years which may influence the high cost of producing the OLED TVs. Prices have a way of adjusting to market conditions and fluctuating production costs. (PhysOrg.com) — Samsung showed off its 40-inch OLED panel at FPD International in Yokahama, Japan. It is a work in progress with a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080, a contrast ratio of a million to one and a color gamut of 107-percent NTSC.
